    I'm curious as to how this, if implemented, will affect government/academic jobs. In my particular field, it's extremely rare for exempt employees to work less than 50 hours in a week (three weeks...

    A grazing muzzle does it for my guy. Others have had success with small hole hay nets. For some, we've had to go as far as a grazing muzzle + very mature hay + small hole hay net + soaking the hay to...

    My GP and OBGYN offices schedule routine appointments 6 months out. It's no wonder, then, that my annual/physical exams often get cancelled or rescheduled. Neither I nor the doctor have a firm idea...
