This story is about two siblings who want to have a comfortable retirement — let’s make them sisters for this article’s purposes.The first sister starts saving in her 20s and manages to save $100,000 by the time she turns 30, but then never puts another dollar towards her retirement. The second sister waits until she’s 30 in order to start saving for retirement and then puts away $10,000 every year until she turns 65.The story is meant to showcase the power of compound interest and saving early for retirement.It sounds pretty incredulous but the math works out. If you assume the sisters invest at a 7% rate of return, the younger sister is going to have $1,150,615.18 when she retires while the older sister will have $1,065,601.21.It’s a nice story. continue reading »

CHICAGO – Hill-Rom and General Electric have settled a patent infringement lawsuit involving Hill-Rom’s hand hygiene technology.The lawsuit was filed in May when the Batesville-based company accused GE of marketing the product that was developed 15 years ago.Hill-Rom has now agreed to license its hand hygiene patents to GE, and GE no longer contests that Hill-Rom’s patents are valid or enforceable.“We’re pleased to reach this settlement, which recognizes the value of the innovation at the heart of the Hill-Rom® Hand Hygiene Solution,” said Alton Shader, Senior Vice President and President North America, Hill-Rom.“Protecting our intellectual property is a vital part of our product development process, which allows us to develop new technologies that enhance outcomes for patients and their caregivers.”The Hill-Rom Hand Hygiene Compliance Solution system uses badge locating technology that offers automatic, continuous monitoring of hand-hygiene station use, to help address health care-acquired infections associated with over 75,000 deaths a year in the United States alone.Alerts are sent to caregivers to gently remind them of missed hand-hygiene opportunities. Once installed, the system can automate the clinical environment to drive productivity and safety, and benefit the patient environment.

Aurora, In. — Indiana Department of Transportation maintenance crews have been scheduled to chip seal, then fog seal, the six-mile segment of State Road 1 from S.R. 46 in Dearborn County to U.S. Highway 52 in Franklin County beginning Monday, June 11. During three days of pavement preservation operations, S.R. 1 will be closed to thru traffic between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.INDOT pilot vehicles will be present to escort local motorists through the work zone between St. Leon and Cottage Grove on S.R. 1.Chip seals coat the highway with liquid asphalt—sealing pavement cracks and protecting the roadbed from harmful ultraviolet rays. This extends service life and lowers maintenance costs. Small chips of limestone are used to cover the asphalt—choking it from spraying vehicles or sticking to tires. The aggregate chips also restore surface friction for improved skid resistance and driver safety.Fog seals are light sprays of liquid asphalt that lock in the stone and further overcoat the highway with sealant protection.These chip and fog seals are extremely cost-effective. Experience shows that every $1 spent on these kinds of surface treatments saves $6 to $14 in taxpayer expenditures “down the road”.
By Greg AregoniFRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (June 3) – Brian Mullen had to wait seven days to pick up his first feature win of the season at 141 Speedway in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds.

Matthias had to slow, which allowed Mullen to play catch up. Mullen reeled in Mathias and used a power move down low to grab the lead for good off turn four.Mullen held off a late charge from Matthias to take home the win. Benji LaCrosse moved to third late over Tyler Wilson. Russ Reinwald finished fifth.

The Toffees could have been cruising at the interval after Romelu Lukaku scored for a seventh straight game while missing further chances. Leighton Baines also hit a post and Arouna Kone twice went close before Wes Hoolahan equalised early in the second half for a 1-1 draw at Carrow Road. “We went to Watford, played poorly (lost 2-0), and then came back here and had a game (against Everton) where one half is not acceptable and the second half is really good.” Neil was pleased his senior personnel stepped up in the second half. “It’s all right me shouting at the side of the pitch all the time,” Neil added. “You need guys in the team who will take the team by the scruff of the neck, lead them and demand the most out of each and every player, I thought we had that in the second half.” He also hopes to add to his options during next month’s transfer window. “One of the things that has made it more difficult for us is the fact that we didn’t strengthen the squad as much as we wanted to before the season started,” Neil said. “Hopefully we can put that right in January. The more strength the squad has, the easier it becomes to win games. We need to add strength in depth to the squad.” Roberto Martinez believes Everton must learn to be more ruthless at each end of the pitch after allowing Norwich to fight back to draw on Saturday. Martinez rued missing out on a victory for a third straight game following draws with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace. “(The) team has to suffer and has to go through this period to realise all the good work that we do, all the expansive football that we play and the quality that we show needs to be backed up with ruthless streak in front of our goal,” Martinez said. “(We need to) make sure we don’t give an opportunity to the opposing teams to get back level. “We’ve been very unfortunate and I think luck plays a big part in final results. “The performances have been very consistent in the last three and we feel we’ve dropped six points, which is an incredible gap in the table.” Norwich boss Alex Neil was frustrated by the first-half showing and is keen for his side to find consistency in performance. “What we need to do is come away from this inconsistency, because that’s where the issue lies,” Neil said. “You look at our performance against Arsenal, we got a good point against a really good team. We could’ve won that game. Press Association
