These tiny rounds of plastic, which are 5 millimeters or smaller in diameter, are put into mass-market skin care products to exfoliate skin. Yes, they're cheap and, yes, they work — but new research shows that they're polluting our Great Lakes.

These all are important; however, with the customer experience playing field being leveled by new technology and the almighty Internet, it's important to focus on another key aspect — accessibility.

    MARKETING 101


    Cross-cultural approach to small business marketing
    By Clarice Brough
    The demographic landscape is changing in the United States, and so too in the world of retail. Traditional marketing evolved over decades to engage a number of diverse nationalities. But the number of nationalities comprising Latinos, Asians and other minorities, as well as multiracial Americans is growing and expanding. But before you jump on this marketing bandwagon, let's dig a little deeper. Marketing and advertising efforts do need to be different, but they also need to strike a balance between your steady consumers of today and the evolving consumers of tomorrow.

    Pressure-relieving devices for treating heel pressure ulcers
    The Cochrane Library
    Pressure ulcers are areas of localized damage to the skin and underlying tissue caused by pressure or shear. Pressure redistribution devices are used as part of the treatment to reduce the pressure on the ulcer. The anatomy of the heel and the susceptibility of the foot to vascular disease mean that pressure ulcers located there require a particular approach to pressure relief.

    Skin Inc.

    TEACHING TIPS


    Academic conversation develops deep comprehension: Getting started
    By David Irwin
    Academic conversation is a strategy that increases student engagement and comprehension in content topics. It is ideal for English learners because it gives them a safe environment to practice academic English with a peer who has more mastery. For these students to reach a deeper level of text comprehension, they need oral processing. This implies that they need to be taught the skills of using oral language in academic contexts, which are far different than those needed for casual conversation.
