Where is the Superstition Freeway?  It is a real section of highway on Arizona’s US Highway 60 that runs past the Lost Dutchman Mine and tons of attractions in the Superstition Mountains. This area is between the Greater Phoenix Metro Area and New Mexico, where an Apache Reservation covers lands in both states.  

Truck driving jobs have grown to nearly 1,000,000 in the United States in the first two months of 2015 and they give signs of increasing even more.  Driving through the magical lands of the American Southwest is a good way to spend that truck driving time.

Phoenix itself offers an increasing number of jobs. and the city is the source of amazing IT innovations among its young people, as shown in the film Spare Parts with George Lopez. Arizona and New Mexico colleges and universities partner with business and government to come up with new products like petroleum-type oil made from algae.

Nearby and in the western suburbs of Phoenix, Surprise AZ is among the Top 10 Fast Growing Micro-Cities in America. This hows how fast the metro area and the state are growing in population, business, and jobs, although the state is still not overly crowded with people. In fact, the state needs more workers and relocating workers will find a pleasant climate, although hot in summer, and many intriguing and fun attractions.

Some of the jobs growing fast in Central Arizona include Truck Drivers, Biomedical and Healthcare jobs with the help of the University of Arizona and the Mayo Clinic, IT Engineers and Managers, Sales People and Store Managers, Finance and Insurance jobs, and positions in the Construction Trades.  Alternative energy jobs are also stable. Arizona supports well over 500 different Aerospace Industry companies and some of these appear on the listing of NASA’s Commercial Crew. Aerospace jobs are increasing.

US 60 runs through Central Arizona and hits many towns with good employment opportunities, especially the Phoenix Metro.

The Keystone XL Pipeline is called the Black Snake, because of its sludgy, toxic, and corrosive bituminous contents flowing down from Alberta, Canada. Without caustic additives, the stuff is so thick, it will not move.

The jobs also coming through the pipeline will last only a few months, except for a very thin skeleton crew that will be kept on the job aft the disputed pipeline is connected to the other pipes.

The caustic chemicals will eat through the pipes and leak onto the ground and into water supplies, because the metal pf the pipes is unprotected.It’s like using heavy-duty DRAINO on your bathroom pipes until they crumble away.

The pipes will not be cleaned, except to flush between oil-tar sands and oil transport, if ever.  Never, because the only type of material in the extension up for US Senate vote in 2015 is oil-tar sands.  When the material originates, it is called the Canada Cancer Corridor and special hospitals have been built there.

If you want a high paying short-term job, then go for the Keystone Xl jobs in the West, but save your money, because these will not last.  Be careful of road blockades by the local Native American Nations whose reservations you may be working upon, possibly without permission.

At least 10 states have low unemployment rates, which usually means that they have not enough workers to fill advertised positions.

“You must have all your teeth pulled immediately.”

That’s what a friend of mine was told when that person presented an Insurance Card and underwent an oral examination. Extractions were covered, but other services were not – not even a cleaning.

Residents of Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio were pleased when governors accepted the option of expanding Medicaid coverage to state residents of higher income levels, but they learned that coverage is not very good. Someone is paying a lot of money in taxes for these covered persons to receive nothing.

A dentist advised the patient mentioned above to have all teeth pulled, because root canals, caps, and bridges would not be a covered expense. But, one set of dentures every two years would be covered.

Americans were accustomed to the Bread Line nd the Unemployment Line back in the 1930s, but we’re having these today as well.

Some employees lose their jobs through no fault of their own. However, some other times, there is cause for termination.

Dishonesty, evasion, or lack of integrity on the job can be the culprit, as well as lack of training and misunderstandings. It is important to be honest, straightforward, and forthcoming on the job with your management and then to insist on proper training and fair treatment as well.

HEALTHCARE

Because of the again Baby Boomers and the nurses and doctor that are also ging Baby Boomers. the Healthcare Industry is booming larger than expected.  Not only are job vacancies increasing for RNs and LPNs, along with a number of fancily-named aides, but more and more nurses are called upon to become Nurse Practitioners (NPs).

In fact, it seems in Internet postings that job openings for Physician Assistants are often changing into new listings for Nurse Practitioners. Another growing trend is for Travel Nursing, which includes assignments to posh sites, transportation reimbursement for airfare, mortgage or rental payment for up to a year, higher wages, and many other perks.

Overall, at least 34 – 40% or more of America’s current nursing staff are retiring before 2020. For example, in Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio, a large proportion of working RNs are 55 years old or older already in 2013.  Nursing instructors and professors do not make as much money, so nurses are staying on the hospital floor and out of the university faculty. Who is going to teach our new nurses and nurse practitioners that we need so badly?

Healthcare as a business is increasing as well because of adult and childhood obesity on the rise. In fact, the average lifespan of  US middle schoolers seems to be reducing, because of this phenomenon. However, despite First Lady Michelle Obama’s effort with the Let’s Move Program and healthy eating, kids in the USA, Canada, and Mexico need more help along those lines. We hope that they will not need all of expensive electronic replacement organs and the awesome 3D printer replacement body parts available even today.

The Aerospace Industry is recognizing the need for health and medical practitioners for the growing private and NASA space programs. Mental health professionals are as necessary as medical practitioners “up there”, because the first astronauts to spend a full year on the International Space Station will do so before 2015. It is not going to be the most comfortable or healthy year without planning and help. With a scheduled private fight to Mars in 2018, these issues really need to be addressed.

Other new avenues opening in the Healthcare Industry include genetic testing and genetic counseling, baby designing, and related phenomena. Why, you can even use DNA tests to procure the perfect mate or design a great dog! This all must create some sort of mental impact.

Regarding that mental impact, the new DSM 5 diagnostic manual of the American Psychiatric Association is released on May 13, 2013. It contains a lot of changes and some new maladies, so professional diagnosis, prescription medication, and SSI/SSDI support will all be affected down the line. Almost frightening is related research that gives evidence to the links between ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Schizophrenia, Major Depression, and Bi-Polar Disorder. The non-degreed lay persons that are smugly misdiagnosing these conditions over the Internet and the back yard gossip fence are not helping any.

Fortunately, jobs leading to careers for people who are or will become qualified to help patients and clients in all aspects medical and mental are increasing, as are college and university programs to train them – except for nurses, which really needs an influx of new students as well as higher wages for nursing instructors.

In an expanding and ever more interdependent global economy, it is important that education teaches facts and not old wive’s tales that are not true. Those errors will come back to hurt us.

Teachers are being prepared better than ever to teach science in K-12, but we are hearing some astounding errors in the classroom! Has it happened to you or your children?

Look at the ongoing collection of errors that are not a comedy at:
