  • The Delivery Battle: FedEx Or UPS For Your Portfolio? [View article]
    In terms of service, my personal experience is hands down in favor of UPS. Courteous accommodating drivers. Fedex throws my boxes anywhere and everywhere, once leaving a tall box leaning against the door buzzer. Twice deliveries scheduled for one day delayed until next day for no given reason. This is over a period of years.

  • Three Noteworthy Sectors: Gold, Food and Healthcare [View article]
    There is a better way than tort lawsuits -- mediation. I am 68 and have been in and out of hospitals for myself and with my family for many decades. Recently, I have noticed doctors and nurses are constantly asking for feedback . Getting feedback early and acting on it can prevent lawsuits. This is where mediation comes in. If hospitals want to prevent lawsuits, they should ask patients to sign a contract to agree to first mediate before litigating. Many contracts have this provision -- e.g., credit cards, architect contracts, etc.

    Another fallout of the lawsuits though is that care providers have to spend way too much time record-keeping (for possible lawsuit defense) and personal one on one time with the patient suffers.

    Otherwise, consider lawsuits another form of feedback.
