ACNE NEW FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Up until recently, acne-- like the common cold-- has successfully confounded the best medical minds. And, like the common cold, it strikes just about everyone at some time or other.

WHAT ARE YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AS AN EMPLOYEE?

In U.S. common law, employment is generally held to be "at will." This meant, in the past, that there were no legal "rights" involved. If you didn't like your job, you were free to quit. And your boss was free to fire you. New laws are slowly changing this view.

Autumn is the most splendid season in the woods, the time when leaves glow and berries glisten, and the air is cleansed of summer's haze. It's also the time when forest campgrounds empty out, motels flash vacancy signs, and you rarely have to wait for service when you walk into a roadside restaurant. (Weekends, especially at the height of fall colors or during prime fishing weeks, are another story, for then the campgrounds and motels often fill to capacity.)
