Florida Prescription Drug Crackdown Extends to Drug Chain Walgreen

Lots of attention to drug distribution in Florida . . .

Florida Prescription Drug Crackdown Extends to Drug Chain Walgreen | Supply Chain Matters:

"Business and traditional media are reporting yet another major development in the ongoing crackdown of prescription drug abuse among U.S. regulatory agencies.  On Wednesday of this week, the DEA searched six Walgreen retail locations as well as the company’s distribution center in Jupiter Florida. The agency is investigating whether Walgreen allowed suspiciously high levels of prescription pain pill retail sales.  Walgreen represents one of the largest U.S. pharmacy and drug chain with over 8000 locations across the U.S."

Not All E-learning Is The Same - Demand More!

Not All E-learning Is The Same | SkillsPlus International Info:

"Everybody wants to offer online e-learning solutions for their staff training and development needs. But not all e-learning is the same. E-learning should go beyond reading a book on a computer screen. Honestly, if I am going to read the words on a page I would rather be under a fluffy blanket, and be curled up on the couch with a pot of hot tea and some butter cookies. E-learning should make full use of the technology of the computer.
  • I want the instructor to talk to me, preferably, on the screen.
  • Add some pictures, or better yet, add some live action video and animation.
  • Provide some interaction to keep me fully engaged and challenged.
  • Provide a handout to go along with the course so I can use that as a memory jogger after I have completed the course.
  • E-learning developers, challenge yourself to go beyond republishing the text book on the computer screen.
E-learning purchasers, demand more from your providers."
