FOR YOUR HEALTH
Are You Washing Your Hands Enough During
Flu Season?
Good hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent transmitting viruses and bacteria to other people. Are you washing your hands the most effective way and at the right times?

We can't see bacteria and viruses, but they linger everywhere. They can be spread to many people in a matter of a few minutes by shaking hands, using a keyboard and mouse that someone else has touched, by touching your face, especially your mouth, are all ways to unknowingly transmit germs.

Although it may seem obvious, you should wash your hands before eating or preparing food, after using the restroom, before touching your nose, eyes, or mouth.

The average person will touch their face three or four times an hour. Typically, you will touch your cell and/or office phone more often than that during the day. Your phone can be a mega source for germs, so it's important to clean it on a regular basis.

Hand washing 101 - wet the entire surface of your hands, rub your hands together including your palms. It is important to get between your fingers, the fingertips and under your fingernails because they harbor bacteria and are often overlooked. You should wash your hands for at least 15 seconds. Rinse and use a paper towel if possible, to dry your hands and use the same paper towel to turn off the faucet.

Don't forget to clean your TV remote at home and when you visit a hotel, most likely the hotel remotes aren't cleaned very often and may harbor bacteria. One suggestion is to place the hotel remote in a plastic bag while using it.

Area Codes That Receive
The Most Robocalls!

 Dallas wins top honors for the highest number of robocalls in the US to their 214-area code with roughly 43 million unwanted calls in 2019. Dallas' 972 area code ranked at number 15. The top worst number of robocalls were in Texas. Out of the top 20 most affected area codes, nine of them were in Texas cities.

San Antonio's 210 area code came in second and 817 area code in Ft. Worth received an estimated 37 million unwanted phone calls which placed them at number three.

Spam calls have grown 108 percent in 2019 across the US.

Of all the unwanted calls in the US, 9.7 were robocalls, 32.6 percent were general spam, 22.6 percent were telemarketers and 28 percent were fraud.
Smart Scale Helps Prevent Falls
The Zibrio smart scale was developed by Katharine Forth, postdoctoral fellow at NASA when she created an algorithm to test the balance of astronauts.
 
Her focus changed when her 86-year-old grandmother lost her balance and fell down the stairs. It was hard for her to witness her previous active grandmother be reduced to using a walker and in a wheelchair after being hospitalized with a broken hip. Forth thought by quantifying someone's balance using her algorithm she could prevent falls like her grandmother had experienced. She felt it was hidden data about oneself that could be useful.
 
An individual just simply stands on the scale for one minute and the Zibrio app will score their balance on a scale of one to ten.
 
Dr. John Holcomb from UT Houston believes that this scale could be a game changer to help keep patients out of the ER.
 
The number one cause of patients being admitted to trauma centers across the US and around the world are falls.
 
Once you are aware of your risk, you can work with your doctor to decide what you need to do to prevent yourself from losing your balance.

The Zibrio smart scale was a 2020 honoree at the CES Innovation Awards.

It is currently being offered by pre-order only and is projected to be available around April of 2020.

Lesson: Be innovative and be open to changing the focus of your initial purpose should the opportunity arise to redirect that purpose.
