CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonConsumers, office managers, owners and non-profits routinely make the same expensive mistake when replacing printer cartridges.

We experience it daily. A business wants a standard or “low-yield” cartridge and is surprised to learn about a “high-yield” cartridge for the printer in question. The previous vendor never mentioned how they can reduce their cost-per-page by at least 30% with name brand high-yield cartridges, and significantly more with factory remanufactured or compatible alternatives.

For office and business laser printers, determine if there is a high-yield cartridge. Not doing so costs your organization dearly. Office superstores generally do not mention the high-yield cartridge unless asked.

Retail “tricks of the trade” are numerous. The ink cartridge “Value Pack” is rarely a real savings. Typically there is a high-yield black and low-yield colors. The cost-per-page is 30% or more than high-yield cartridges’. General merchandisers (Walmart, Target & Fred Meyer) usually do not sell high-yield cartridges so your per-page cost will always be the most expensive.

As a full service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs. We stock several thousand different ink & laser toner cartridges and offer free shipping.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenCalled “The Rainbow Stone” by Australia’s Aboriginal people, opal is a natural marvel. With a brilliance of color and pattern coupled with the ability to change colors in varying lights, opal is one of the most precious gems in the world.

Opal is a living stone that is composed of anywhere from 3% to 21% water, but usually has a water content in the 6% to 10% range. This hydration allows opal to embody the colors of all other gems, creating a brilliant iridescence and lending opal, which is October’s birthstone, the nickname “The Queen of Gems.” Opal’s mesmerizing flashes of fire give your outfits a whole lot of flare packed into just one stone.

This beautiful pendant confidently shines in any roomPositively radiant, opal's brilliant iridescence is unmistakable

Some people think that it is unlucky to wear opal if you were not born in October. However, according to the Gemological Institute of America, “That particular superstition comes from a novel written in the 1800’s…In fact, throughout most of history, opal has been regarded as the luckiest and most magical of all gems because it can show all colors.”

Not only are opals lucky, they’re also unique; no two are exactly alike. So why not find an opal that’s as unique as you are? At Nielsen’s Jewelers, we’d love to help you find the perfect opal piece. Stop in today to find your perfect Rainbow Stone!

MAGNOLIA INNOVATIVE SENIOR LIVING - Amanda ShieldsAs a nurse practitioner with over 15 years of experience specializing in geriatric care, Amanda Shields has seen a lot.

“I’ve had the opportunity to provide medical care in not only the clinic setting but in-home and at nursing homes, memory care centers, and assisted living facilities,” says Shields, the owner of Magnolia Innovative Senior Living.

This wide field of experience is one of the main reasons Amanda decided to start Magnolia, which offers senior placement services, health advocacy/case management, and an adult foster home with a holistic care approach that provides the highest level of care to residents.

“I decided to open Magnolia based on what I saw: homes that lacked medical expertise for dealing with seniors, senior care centers with communication issues, and facilities with low caregiver support ratios. I wanted to fill a missing niche,” says Shields.

With a keen understanding of the senior care landscape coupled with a well-established career as a nurse practitioner, Magnolia has been providing senior care in a home setting for over 6 years now, and Amanda wouldn’t have it any other way.

“The ability to make a difference in the lives of my residents and patients, it gives me both a deep sense of personal and professional satisfaction to contribute to their overall health, quality of life and happiness,” says Shields.

With new homes opening in November and February, Magnolia will continue to make positive contributions in the lives of seniors. To find out more, call (503) 819-0308 or visit their website.

With fall officially underway; it’s time to start preparing your home for the long rainy season that is set to return. The first place to start with your preparations is your gutters. Fall means more debris making its way into your gutters, which means it’s important that your gutters are in peak working condition keeping water flowing without restriction.

To start, examine your gutters for signs of damage, including: Cracking, internal and external rusting, sagging, detachment, damage to your home’s siding, pooled water, and leaks inside of your home. It’s much better to deal with any problems your gutters may have during the fall, before the harsher winter weather takes over and they become impossible to repair; if you spot any issues with your gutters or any other part of your roof, call Pacific West Roofing at (503) 635-8706 for a free estimate.

Another obvious step you can take is to clean out your gutters. Debris-clogged downspouts can cause water to dam and pool up inside the gutters, potentially leading to overflow water damage and rotted rafter tails. Ensure that you are regularly checking and cleaning debris out of your gutters to prevent clogs; if you are dealing with clogged gutters all the time, the actual gutter may have an issue that is causing the clog. You can also make your life easier by installing Gutter Stuff, which we install, preventing the collection of debris in the first place by displacing debris and allowing water to flow unrestricted.

If you have any concerns about or have noticed any issues with your gutters, contact Pacific West Roofing today!

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhilipsLast year, nearly 90,000 charges alleging workplace discrimination were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). In many of these cases, the individual is an at-will employee who can be fired at any time for just about any reason—even if the reason is a poor one.

In certain situations, however, wrongful termination can be shown, and a wrongful termination attorney should be retained to protect your rights. Generally speaking, a termination must fit into one of three categories to be considered wrongful: Termination based on 1.) protected class; 2.) protected actions; or 3.) breach of contract.

Oregon and federal law have created certain classes protected from discrimination, including race, national origin, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, and a host of others. Suspicion and belief alone are not enough to prove a case; an employee must establish a causal link between being part of a protected class and their termination. This requires witnesses, documents, and other evidence that an attorney can help you gather.

Certain conduct is also protected by law, including reporting illegal employer conduct (whistleblowing), or exercising a legal right like voting. Additionally, if your termination violated an employment contract term, you may also have grounds to assert a wrongful termination claim against a former employer.

Employment cases can be complex, involving overlapping Oregon and federal laws, rules, and regulations that are applied differently to every case. If you believe you have a serious case, I strongly recommend consulting with The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today.

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Saramati KrishnaThinking about getting pregnant? Get a jumpstart on prenatal care with these five health tips.

Vitamin supplements. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables is sufficient to meet the nutritional needs of most people. However, there are some nutrients that are too essential to leave to diet alone. A daily prenatal multivitamin can provide adequate folic acid and other vitamins to someone considering pregnancy. The ideal time to start taking one is before conception.

Exercise. Regular exercise improves strength and endurance as well as emotional and physical well-being. While some modifications may be necessary to accommodate the changing pregnant body, regular exercise reduces your risk of developing gestational diabetes, preeclampsia and cesarean section rates.

Lose weight. Excessive weight gain can lead to an increased risk for insulin resistance. This means that even modest increases in our body mass can lead to diabetes or prediabetes. Undiagnosed diabetes also increases the risk of fetal malformations.

Dental checkup. Did you know that there is a link between gum disease and pregnancy complications such as premature labor, preeclampsia and low birth weight? You can reduce these risks by scheduling a professional dental cleaning and exam.

Visit your doctor. Most OB-GYN offices now offer testing for hereditary genetic disorders such as cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, fragile X syndrome and some hereditary anemias. You and your doctor may factor in age, family history, ethnic or racial ancestry if you wish to undergo screening.

ELMER'S FLAG & BANNER, KITES TOO! - David AnchelWinter weather is tough on everything: people, cars, homes, and your outdoor flag display. The winter elements bring everything from high winds to rain, sleet, and snow, testing your flag and flagpole in a variety of ways.

But don’t let the weather deter you from showing your pride all year long! Follow these simple steps and your flag and flagpole have an excellent chance to survive the upcoming colder, wetter weather:

  • Select the right flag – Standard nylon is no match for winter, but a double ply polyester flag is designed to withstand this abuse. If you normally fly a standard 5 x 8 ft. flag, try flying a flag one size smaller; smaller flags have less surface area for snow and wind to attack. Check on your flags regularly, and consider rotating two different flags to extend their display lives.

  • Examine your flagpole – All flag pole parts eventually break down against the outdoor elements. Before the weather turns really nasty, you should thoroughly examine your flagpole, and replace parts if necessary. Check for broken clamps and damage to the truck, pulley, and snap hooks, and examine your halyard for fraying.

  • Over 35? Take it down to keep it alive – While flags can withstand an enormous amount of stress, there is always a limit. When the winds reach 35+ miles per hour, it’s time to take your flag down. No matter the size or material of your flag, taking this precaution can extend your flag’s life immensely.

    LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanFor outgoing retirees, meeting new friends is an exciting aspect of moving into senior housing. Yet others may feel anxious or nervous about developing a new social network. Fortunately, senior housing provides many opportunities to make friends who share similar interests.

    One of the best ways to meet new people is to frequent common areas. You won’t meet anyone new if you never leave your living space, so walk around your community, sit at new tables for dinner, and approach others to strike up conversations. Don’t assume that others will come to you; instead, place the onus on yourself to approach others and introduce yourself.

    Another great method of making new friends is by signing up for activities. Senior housing tends to offer a wide variety of activities that give retirees a chance to meet and spend time with new people. By sharing in an activity, you and your neighbors become acquainted, and can discover common interests and experiences.

    So step out of your comfort zone by taking a craft class you’ve never considered before. Join an exercise group that will really push you. Follow a passion like golf or art, and participate in your chosen activity regularly; you will have repeated contact with the same people, with familiarity breeding friendship.

    For help selecting the right senior housing for you or your loved one, contact Jennifer Cook-Buman and Living Right Senior Placement today at (503) 780-7353.

    PARR CABINET DESIGN CENTER - Fabio TestaAre you ready to replace your tile or laminate countertops? In the current remodeling and new construction market, quartz is by far the most popular surface trending across the country. Quartz is a man-made material that is created with roughly 95 percent ground natural quartz and 5 percent polymer resins, which results in a natural stone look.

    When compared to granite, quartz is much stronger, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and there is no safer stone surface for food preparation. Quartz is also extremely easy to clean; just add some warm water and soap and you are good to go. One the best features of quartz is that it never needs to be sealed like granite. When it comes to design options, Cambria quartz offers eight striking collections with more than 120 unique designs. Combining Cambria quartz with a tile backsplash gives homeowners almost unlimited possibilities to fit their personal style and budget.

    Most quartz products are offered with warranties, and since quartz is man-made, the color and pattern possibilities are endless, including assortments that are just about indistinguishable from granite or marble. This makes quartz a perfect solution for kitchens and baths as well as for shower surrounds, fireplace surrounds and even flooring in certain applications.

    Visit one of Parr’s Design Centers today for more information about quartz, tile, and all your solid surface needs. Parr’s experts will show you the most current colors and styles while walking you through stunning displays in their expansive state-of-the-art showroom.

    THE PORTLAND CLINIC - Ehud Zusman, MDSecond only to skin cancer, prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men. Symptoms of early prostate cancer include difficulty starting and maintaining a steady stream of urine, dribbling of urine, and frequent urination, among others. Early symptoms can be similar to symptoms of benign conditions, such as an enlarged prostate.

    Risk factors for prostate cancer include age, ethnicity, family history, genetics and geography; older men are at an elevated risk for more aggressive forms of prostate cancer. African American and Caribbean men also have a higher risk of having aggressive prostate cancer, and should be screened starting at age 40.

    Screening for prostate cancer is recommended by the American Urological Association for all men ages 54 to 69. Men interested in screening should discuss the risks and benefits of prostate cancer screening with their doctor. Advancements over the last few years have resulted in better diagnostic tools as well as better treatment options for men with both localized and advanced prostate cancer. Screening is done by a Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) blood test and a digital rectal exam.

    Men diagnosed with early prostate cancer can be managed by active surveillance. In more advanced cases, prostate removal surgery, external radiation and seed implantation (an internal radiation therapy) may be required. Most men can return to normal life a few months after treatment with a good quality of life.
