Acupuncture becoming more common in U.S.
Have you ever been curious about what acupuncture could do for you? Though acupuncture is a 5,000-year-old practice, it has only recently been gaining widespread acceptance in the U.S.

The business of selling safety to pilots
Salesmen - or to be politically correct, salespersons - that's what Safety Program Managers are. I am an Operations (pilot side) Safety Program Manager. There is an Air Worthiness (mechanics side) Safety Program Manager, John Fisher, in our office. We both answer to our Office Manager. Between the two of us, we are responsible for the Safety Program for the Juneau District Office of the FAA. We both sell aviation safety to pilots, mechanics, airport managers and airport and airline personnel. Perhaps, most importantly, passengers in aircraft also come under our umbrella.

One of two losers
After a ho-hum campaign from an Alaskan viewpoint, our latest presidential election has morphed into the most fascinating event in memory. That said, I would point out that historically, wars have sometimes started for less.

Schools: a wonderland for ads
OK, staff, the task before us is clear: We've got to market our clients' products to as many schoolchildren as possible. It's a captive audience of more than 47 million students in elementary and secondary public schools.

Individualists need not apply
There's something wrong with polls. I have an unreasonable dislike for them even when they prove to be right, as they so disappointingly often do.

That nagging feeling
The following is excerpted from an editorial that appeared Tuesday in the Fort Wayne (Ind.) News-Sentinel: If he has any sensitivity at all, whoever ends up sitting in the White House for the next four years is going to be haunted by the nagging feeling he doesn't belong there.

Delayed curtain
The following editorial appeared in today's Los Angeles Times: Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, put into a damned-if-she-does-and-damned-if-she-doesn't position on whether or not to delay a ballot reporting deadline in the presidential election, punted the decision into Wednesday afternoon while some counties continued a manual recount. Still, by announcing that as of 5 p.m. Tuesday Republican George W. Bush remained ahead of Democrat Al Gore by 300 votes, Republican Harris again called Bush the winner without actually saying it.

U.S. should lead
The following editorial appeared in Wednesday's Miami Herald: As Americans watch transfixed by the confusing muddle of the presidential election, an arguably bigger battle plays out in the Netherlands. The stakes in The Hague aren't about a mere presidency but the environmental fate of the planet.

Bush cousin's role slaps media
Add to the press' defeat in Election 2000 the latest embarrassment: The election night call declaring George W. Bush the winner did not come from the news media polling group Voter News Service. It came first from the political desk of the Fox News Channel, which was being run by Bush's first cousin, John Ellis. The other networks quickly followed, pressured by Fox's decision.

Work well-done
This summer, my husband and I were on an 19-day ocean trip in Southestern Alaska when we experienced an engine problem near Juneau. We found ourselves broken down with our holiday at a standstill. We soon learned that in the heart of boating season, it was an exceptionally busy time for marine mechanics.
