Very few of us, when asked if we experience a significant amount of pressure, anxiety, and tension, would deny it. Many of us would in fact welcome therapeutic intervention. But it seems a stretch to consider that animals would need human assistance to relieve their stress.....well, apparently at some Zoos, a menagerie of God's creatures are being offered "paint therapy"..........what?!?

It was a reasonable question from my husband based on the fact that I was 6 months pregnant with #2 son and every rollercoaster ride we came had an obnoxiously visible sign that warned pregnant women not to ride. My nurse friend and I decided, "hey, that baby is in the best shock-absorber ever made, sure it's OK if I ride."

The very word "collaboration" suggests cooperation and working jointly to accomplish something, it also eludes to working as a team. So.....theoretically, it should work, right?

Here's insight from a survey of over 100 healthcare executives and industry advisers (source: HealthLeaders  March 2008 edition):

Oh, now I think I've heard it all.......I thought a cordial nod and/or handshake was as familiar as you should become with business associates, but apparently, if you're in the global market, you need to know "etiquette of kissing standards". I guess numerous customs exist out there and the ordinary greeting may need some refinement.
