CPAP Machine Cleaning -- Consumer Update and Video

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machine Cleaning

Devices that claim to use ozone gas or UV light to clean CPAP machines do not have FDA clearance or approval.
If you use a CPAP machine at night to help you breathe during sleep, you know it can be difficult to keep up a regular cleaning schedule. A dirty CPAP machine contaminated with germs like viruses and bacteria can make you sick. So automated machines advertised on TV that claim to clean or disinfect your CPAP might look like a good option. 

But you should think twice before buying a machine that claims to clean or disinfect a CPAP.

Career Development and Wealth Generation Tool - Book Review: "Deep Work" by Cal Newport

Career Development and Wealth Generation Tool - Book Review:  “Deep Work” by Cal Newport

What is the return on investment (ROI) for this book?
  • There is an unfathomable high potential ROI if one lives a “Deep Work” practice tailored to your needs.
  • This is a book to be lived, not simply read.
  • You cannot succeed in achieving and sustaining a high level of income and wealth generation without many of the practices cited in this book.
Key topics covered in “Deep Work”
  • Time Management
  • Resource management from the perspective of time, attention and applied energy
  • Setting conditions for deep thinking and focused profitable outcomes
  • Developing sensitivity to recognizing disruptions and apply mitigation strategies to stay focused
Should I spend money on this book?
  • I checked this book out from a library.
    • I did not recognize new, or innovative material, or I would have purchased it.
      • I did take about 5 pages worth of notes I believe can be condensed into less pages.
  • This book is common sense not commonly practiced. 
    • If you don’t live the book, the book is worthless
Should I read this book?
  • Not if you have a results-driven personality or have limited time
    • The book is about 300 pages of common-sense practices collated in an uncommon manner citing time management and practices conducive to productive focused outcomes.
    • I was frustrated having to weed out the nuggets of gold that could be reduced down to 5-10 pages that I could model and put into practice.
  • I do recommend skimming the book and highlighting areas of interest. 
  • If able, assign an employee to distill the book observations tailored to your business and personal interests.
    •  The book is over 300 pages and can theoretically be concentrated to 10 pages…. Maybe even less.
Okay, you still want to buy the book or audio?

The military’s contractor cyber standards are officially here

" The official release of the standard means contractors will now need to pay a CMMC-certified assessor to physically inspect their operations to ensure they comply with one of the five levels. In the future, once CMMC begins appearing in RFIs and actual solicitations, if a contractor doesn't meet the contract's requisite level under the framework, they won't be able to bid for the work."

Best Cities for Jobs

Best Cities for Jobs

Adam McCann, Financial Writer
Jan 3, 2020
"With 2019 behind us, it's time to think about fresh starts, whether that means small changes or a complete life overhaul. For many people, finding a new or better job will be a top resolution.
If that's your mission for the new year, it's a good time to be on the job market. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' most recent jobs report, the national unemployment rate is 3.6 percent, just a bit higher than the 50-year low of 3.5% seen in September 2019.
College graduates, especially, will see a strong boost in their job prospects. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, employers plan to hire 5.8 percent more members from the Class of 2020 than from the previous graduating cohort.
But your luck of finding work depends largely on location. To help you with the job hunt, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 31 key indicators of job-market strength. They range from job opportunities to employment growth to monthly average starting salary. Read on for our findings, additional insight from our panel of experts and a full description of our methodology.
