Are Your Medicine Costs Making You Sick? We have a cure.

Here’s how you can save money on prescription medicines.

About ten years back, I was buying a newly-prescribed inhaler for asthma. It was quite expensive, and I thought there surely had been a problem with my pharmacy insurance claim. But, I checked with my insurance company and there wasn’t a mistake. It was simply an expensive medicine.

OK.

The next time I went to the drug store to have the prescription filled, I mentioned to the pharmacy clerk how expensive I thought the medicine was. I was shocked to hear that I could get a coupon from the manufacturer for a free inhaler. A free inhaler? I had never heard of coupons for medicine. I never did follow up on the offer. It somehow seemed strange to me.

Coupons for cookies? Yes. Coupons for detergents? Yes. Coupons for medicines? There had to be a catch…so I passed on the idea.

16 Tips For A Profitable and Safe Garage Sale / The Good Sale

Always keep items neatly displayed. Do not let tables look messy and cluttered — it will hurt your sales.

With the warm weather approaching, you may be thinking about having a garage sale. Garage sales are a great way to turn unwanted items into extra cash. And, an added bonus is you get to de-clutter your house at the same time.

  • Most people are searching for true bargains on low-priced items.

What To Sell

If you have high-quality furniture to sell, gold jewelry, or expensive china, you will probably not find your buyer at a garage sale.

What’s wrong with this picture? (If you’re a computer, don’t answer.)

Even Watson had his 15 minutes of fame.

It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.

 – Albert Einstein

 

Now customers can utilize the same brainpower to help do their taxes as doctors use to help diagnose cancer. Is this a great thing? Just wondering…

On the surface, it sounds quite intriguing. Underneath the surface it sounds a bit … scary.

Watson is an artificial intelligence computer that was developed by IBM. IBM is reportedly now looking to develop its artificial intelligence technology into a multi-billion dollar business. That’s fine. Even Staples and Macys are jumping onto the Watson bandwagon to help guide shoppers through stores.

However, does anyone else have a problem with the concept of needing artificial intelligence to help professionals navigate through their tax preparation, as offered by a major tax preparer? What about the millions of people who do their taxes on their own. Is our human intelligence no longer adequate enough to properly prepare our taxes? If so, is using artificial intelligence the answer?
