Q: Do you really need to change your car’s oil every 3,000 miles?

A: If you want your engine to last as long as possible and achieve peak performance, the answer is yes.
 
One of the commercial limousines we service at HARTS (Homolak’s Automotive Repair & Technical Services) is a 4.6-liter Lincoln that recently went over 527,000 miles. And it runs as smooth as the day it was built. We service a few other limos that are pushing 250,000 miles. The long life of these vehicles, which often run 24/7, is due to dedicated routine maintenance.
 
The best thing you can do for your car—and one of the least expensive—i ...

I’m reading the autobiography of Steve Jobs (“Steve Jobs,” by Walter Isaacson). It discusses Steve’s perceived ability to create a “reality distortion field” around himself and anyone near him. This distortion of reality is really just a behavior that allowed Steve to ignore anything that got in the way of achieving his goals and allowed him to exercise his will in getting things done his way.
 
This bending of reality can be applied by anyone who has a strong enough will to see his or her objectives achieved. Want to take care of your family, send your children to college, retire in comfort, travel the world, ...

We hear from our dentist how important regular check-ups are. It is just as important for our pets to have regular dental health evaluations, too. Most people don’t know that 80% of all dogs and cats over the age of two years have some degree of dental disease, from gingivitis (gum inflammation) all the way to abscessed teeth. Even if your pet’s teeth appear normal with no visible tartar buildup, there are bacteria below the gum line in a natural pocket called the “sulcus” that cause gum disease.
 
It is not what you see on the surface of the tooth that poses a danger; it is what is going on below the gum line. Th ...

Did you know more than 70% of heart attacks are caused by inflammation in the body? Many experts now feel it is the single greatest threat to heart health. Making matters worse, the inflammation responsible is “silent” inflammation, which exists without any obvious symptoms. Researchers have confirmed a strong link between this type of inflammation and many diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and even osteoporosis. It’s pretty simple—the more inflamed you are, the greater your risk of having a heart attack, stroke or developing one of many diseases.
Now, not all inflammation is bad. In fact, it ...

In spite of the stock market’s recent rally‚ including hitting a six-month high, private investors and their financial advisors are justifiably cautious. In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Investment News, just 43.6% of financial advisors planned to increase their clients’ allocations to stocks this year, compared to 63.4% at the start of 2011. In addition, a Yale School of Management Survey showed a decline in the number of investors who felt confident there would NOT be a stock-market crash in the next six months. Combine this skepticism with the fact that hordes of Baby Boomers are reaching retirement age, as Barron’ ...
