THE EQUIFAX BREACH: IS YOUR DATA SAFE?

Imagine, for a moment, that you’re the president of a bank. A very big bank. A bank entrusted with guarding the precious valuables of millions of customers. One day law enforcement warns you that your alarm system has a glitch that needs to be fixed. You pass the message on to members of your security team, who assure you that they’re on top of the problem. But a few months later, you get some distressing news. For at least the past ten weeks, a back door to the bank has been left unlocked every night, and the vault has been...

WHY CAR INSURANCE IS SO EXPENSIVE — AND FIVE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY

Sticker shock is no longer limited to shopping for a car. It’s also a common experience when you receive the bill for your auto insurance. Premiums have been going up, up, up in recent years, far exceeding the rate of inflation. Since 2015 rates have gone up 15 percent nationwide, according to the Consumer Price Index, while the prices of other consumer goods increased by only four percent in the same period. According to a new report by The Zebra, an online search service that tracks car insurance rates, the national average annual premium for car insurance is now $1,427,...

ST. JUDE DEFIBRILLATOR: BATTERY DEFECT LEADS TO MASSIVE RECALL

As a digital society, we take a lot for granted in the technology that we use every day. We expect the local power company to provide us with heat and light without interruption; we expect our cars, our computers and our cell phones to work flawlessly — until the day they don’t. But certain system failures are a lot more serious than others. In some cases, the premature failure of a power source can be literally a matter of life and death. Hundreds of thousands of people who rely on medical devices implanted in their chests to help regulate their...

Wells Fargo Auto Loans Debacle: Corporate Culture Gone Wrong?

Executives at Wells Fargo have done a lot of apologizing lately. A series of missteps by the company over the past two years has resulted in a flood of customer complaints, harsh criticism from lawmakers, and rebukes from regulators over alleged “widespread consumer abuses.” The situation has also prompted considerable head-scratching and commentary from business journalists and other observers trying to figure out “what went wrong” inside one of the world’s biggest banks. Explaining the misfires at Wells Fargo isn’t easy. The company was fined $185 million by federal banking regulators for creating millions of bank and credit card accounts...

ATTUNE KNEE CONTROVERSY: WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT MEDICAL DEVICES CAN HURT YOU

Roughly ten percent of Americans carry a medical device of some kind implanted in their bodies, ranging from pacemakers and artificial joints to surgical mesh and birth-control devices. Over the past half century we have gradually become a bionic culture; some procedures, such as knee replacement, have become so common that more than 600,000 people undergo the surgery every year in this country, usually to relieve chronic pain from arthritis. But even as our reliance on medical devices has increased, so have reports about manufacturing defects and bad designs, costly recalls and painful “revision” surgeries – in some cases, replacing a...

NEW HOME BUYERS BATTLE FORMALDEHYDE PROBLEM FROM WEYERHAEUSER JOISTS

For many Americans, there’s no prouder moment than the day they move into their newly constructed dream home. Unfortunately, for some house buyers in Colorado and several other states, that dream has turned into a nightmare — and something they once took for granted, the prospect of feeling safe and healthy in their own domicile, has become a burning issue. Also a wheezing, eye-watering, coughing, throat-irritating issue. The source of their complaints has to do with floor joists manufactured by the Weyerhaeuser Company. The joists are coated with a formaldehyde-based resin, which was intended to aid in fire prevention. But buyers say...

What You Should Know About Buying Car Insurance

Auto insurance is one of the great paradoxes of modern life. Every driver is required to have it, and nobody wants to be in the position of having to use it. Yet the need for the right kind of protection for you and your loved ones has never been greater; the incidence of severe car accidents has been steadily increasing since 2011, and the number of fatalities on the road — caused primarily by alcohol, speeding, or distracted driving — is the highest it’s been in a decade. Even if you’re an exceptionally cautious driver with no accidents on your record,...
