Long DescriptionPrescription drugs help people manage such medical conditions as severe depression, high blood pressure, asthma, arthritis, and diabetes. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, adults spend nearly $73 billion per year on prescription drugs. Pharmaceutical companies have increased demand for their products by advertising to patients and marketing to the physicians who prescribe drugs practices that critics condemn. The more prescription drugs a person takes, the more likely the drugs will interact in ways that are harmful. Errors in prescribing are another hazard, and even legitimate prescription drugs have recently been subject to recalls due to contamination. Are prescription drugs getting to the people who need them most? Are they being overprescribed and overused? Are prices too high? Prescription Drugs introduces readers to the controversies associated with popular prescription drugs and shows how Americans have attempted to balance the goals of access and safety.

Article of interest

Although we have had a couple days lately when we have been down for maintenance, looking back over the last couple years we can say that we have been available 99.5% of the time and that isn't too bad at all.

With the latest outage, we struggled to replace damaged equipment and bring the new boxes online as quickly as possible. We now think that we have everything up and running but we will keep monitoring for little things that may have gotten missed.

We feel so bad when ever the system is off line for more than a few minutes or for any unexpected events. But to put thinks into prespective, we looked back over the past 2 years and found that we have been off line completely for less than 100 hours with the longest period being this last outage when we ended up doing a full rebuild on our main server box.

With all things considered we think we are doing pretty good for a small company managing multiple web sites as well as our regular day-to-day business.

We will continue to improve and make efforts to reduce future down time. Even at 99.5% up time, there is room for improvement.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
