whenclots in my lung,with blood it was serious. fortunately, my doctor had a game plan. treatment with xarelto®. hey guys! hey, finally, somebody i can look up to... ...besides arnie. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there's limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, i tried warfarin, but the blood testing and dietary restrictions... don't get me started on that. i didn't have to. we started on xarelto®. nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising,
or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.

system. reinforcing the chill look forward to sunday as we've been talking b look at the chill already out across that region. you have got 30's, you've even got couple every 20's showing up toward the twin cities in des moines. not talking 20's here, right now at 55. that chill does start to set until with time. then as that reinforcing frontal boundery comes in by the weekend, we will see these temperatures drop off. so today in the 50's, typical. tomorrow in the 50's, also a very typical day for late november. but then you see the signs of that next storm system moving in. brunt of the energy, bypasses us to the north, but still going to get the effect regardless of the chill that comes in the wake of the front. so, back in the four's sunday, and monday, and that is, again being some of the coldest air, in fact the coldest air we've had so far this season. school day forecast isn't bad one. better than yesterday, right? breezy, that's why we gave it b. little cool as a result. the sun will shine. we expect the mid 50's for highs that will continue to be the case tomorrow. as we mention, watch for that chill, as we head into sunday, monday, then look at the cute

some companies, but employees say there is one benefit that trumps them all: flexibility. in a survey by staffing, more than 50 press of those surveyed chose flexible work hours as the perk they most desire. flexibility can mean variety of things, from working at home, to not having to be in the office at the same time each day. in many cases, this flexibility is more important than money. found 79% of employees would prefer new or additional benefits to a pay increase. this was particularly important to women and younger employees. these younger employees say that identify locally, they would like to tell he commute full time. but the average tell he commuters 49 years old, college educated, and earns more than $65,000 a year. that's because increasingly these positions are not relegated to customer service or administrative work. instead, it is often managers and even executives that have the corner on flexibility. i'm jill schlessinger, for

happy birthday. come . i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor.
since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers. a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery and all medicines you take. i will take brilinta today. tomorrow. and every day for as long as my doctor tells me. don't miss a day of brilinta. thioh my god. friday. does anybody want to be part of this? nooooo. well, chevy has a better way, with black friday deals all month long. that's a great idea. what if you could get up to twenty percent cash back when you bought it? bam. twenty percent back? that's awesome. it's black friday. find your tag and get cash back for 20% of the msrp on select 2015 vehicles in stock. or, get zero percent financing for seventy-two months on 2015 silverado light duty models. cool time to go shopping.
