  1. This is a great idea. Schools don’t do enough to introduce kids to various career fields. Many people find themselves in a career they hate at midlife just because they were never introduced to all their options. Dr. Lamar is a great representative of his profession.

  2. That’s why I started this podcast – to introduce students to different careers especially if they don’t personally know someone in the featured podcast. I certainly didn’t personally know any actuaries before this . . .

  3. I genuinely liked reading through your post! You have a lot of quality material. I might advise you to come up with blog posts even more often. By doing this, having this kind of a worthy website I think you will probably rank higher in the search engines.

  4. A broad range of techniques are used to locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral misalignments (subluxations) in the spine. Chiropractors may use manual adjustment, electrical muscular stimulation, ultrasound or massage. But they never use pharmaceutical drugs or invasive surgery. Chiropractic is a natural method of healing that stimulates the body’s communication system to work more effectively to initiate, control and coordinate the various functions of the cells, organs and systems of the body.
