The appeal in the Texas Medical Association (TMA) vs. Texas Board of Chiropractors (TBCE) lawsuit is continuing to move forward.  The Court of Appeals for the Third District of Texas in Austin has notified the parties involved in this case that submission and oral arguments will be held Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 1:30 PM before Justices Puryear, Pemberton, and Bourland.

If the 2016 Travis County District Court decision isn’t overturned, it could negatively impact the future of chiropractic in the Lone Star State.  The TCA, a defendant in the case, will continue to fight to protect the right of Texas chiropractors to treat nerve-related conditions, including the subluxation complex.

I'm Too BUSY!

We measure our own importance — and the importance of those around us — by how much we can pack into our days. We attempt to outdo, outhustle, and outperform one another. We are in the midst of a busyness epidemic. There is just “to much to do!”

How can we create more time in our lives? The answer is that we already do have more time in our lives than ever before. On the whole, people in developed countries are actually working far fewer hours than in past decades. This even holds true in the famously work-inclined US; in 1940 the average American work week clocked in at 43.3 hours. In 2016 it was just 34.4 hours. Yet we feel busier than ever. 

Here are a few good places for busy-ness junkies to start:

2018 Government Shutdown

Monday, January 22, 2018 12:56 PM

The New York Times reports:  The U.S. government is close to reopening.  The Senate voted to reopen the government after 81 senators broke the filibuster that shut it down.  Before the government can reopen, the House must approve the measure that the Senate passed.

Monday morning, CNBC reported that Senators appeared optimistic they had the votes to end the government shutdown on Monday. The chamber is expected to vote Monday to advance a short-term stopgap bill to keep the government open through Feb. 8. “We will vote today to reopen the government," said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Schumer said Democrats have received assurances that the Senate will take on immigration issues, before Feb. 8.

If it gets passed by Congress and signed, the funding legislation means that federal agencies will no longer be forced to shut their doors, and to furlough non-essential workers. 

U.S. government funding lapsed at the end of Friday.  The Senate had aimed to vote on a procedural motion to advance the spending plan Monday.  On Sunday night the Senate moved to hold a vote at 10 p.m. ET, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D., N.Y., objected. McConnell then scheduled a cloture vote for Monday.
