    Why men should practice yoga
    AmongMen.com via The Huffington Post
    When most men hear the word "yoga" they probably think of relaxing music, burning incense, flexible women or men (maybe not a bad thing!) and colorful, stretchy clothes. If you are a yoga-skeptic, you may be thinking it's way too passive and flowery for you. But yoga has expanded and evolved. Now there are classes for jocks, the extremely inflexible and exercise newbies. Here are five reasons guys should consider taking a yoga class.

    Babble
    As any mommy-to-be can attest, the moment you discover a little one is on its way, every decision takes on an entirely new meaning. Should you have that morning cup of coffee? Is it ok to still dye your grays? What about going organic? Pregnancy-friendly skincare is likely not high on the priority list during a woman's first trimester. However, there are some skin care ingredients that should be avoided during pregnancy and you should make skincare routine adjustments for pregnancy. Here are eight mom-to-be friendly skin care lines.

    Sunburn cases heat up during long summer days
    By Denise A. Valenti
    Hot summer days of bright sunshine and more hours of daylight greatly increase in the rates of serious sunburn. During the one month following the start of daylight savings time, there is reported to be a more than 200 percent increase in the rate of serious sunburns due to the extended daylight hours and the subsequent time spent outdoors. Not surprisingly, twice as many of the visits related to sunburn presenting in urgent care clinics are in those states with greater and more intense sun exposure — Arizona, Colorado and Texas compared to Georgia, Ohio, North Carolina and Virginia.

    Last week's survey: What effect will MyPost have on direct marketing?
    SEE RESULTS


    QUOTABLE


    Being an NCEA Certified Esthetician, Educator and professional has had a profound change in my life for the better. It is just as important to estheticians for advanced training purposes, support from an association, as well as keeping members involved of changes in the industry and state regulations about the careers we all love. Being the best has only been enhanced from this training and membership. You cannot get the same or even similar benefits from other organizations. This is based on United States standards and job skills that are necessary in today's workplace for esthetic professionals. I would want everyone I have ever taught, worked with and trained in the skin care industry to become part of this elite organization, to better themselves and the profession overall.

    — Dr. Sherry D. Davis, Azusa, Calif.

    Top 10 inbound marketing stats
    Small Business Patch
    HubSpot's annual "State of Inbound Marketing Report" has plenty of great soundbytes to make even the staunchest skeptic a believer in inbound marketing. What is inbound marketing, you ask? Inbound marketing is any marketing tactic, be it blogging, social media, etc., that attracts your customers to you. Inbound marketing is time-consuming — customers will only come to you if you give them a reason to do so, be it through great content or great value — but HubSpot's report shows both that there is great ROI in spending time on inbound marketing and that your competitors are probably already doing it.
