Re: Best Triathlon Bike?

Currently deciding between these 3 options (2 Canyon Endurace, 1 Cannondale Synapse). Looking for speed but also comfort. How does the comfort compare? 1. https://www.cannondale.com/en/USA/Bike/ProductDetail?Id=70cdf8d4-6bef-4411-9680-ec54f519abbe&parentid=undefined 2. https://www.canyon.com/en-us/r...

SUV: Acura RDX or Mazda CX-5

We are considering leasing a 2019 Mazda CX-5 or buying a used 2017-2018 CX-5 or Acura RDX. We’d buy one with under 40,000 miles in the price range of $24,000-$26,000 (probably just at CarMax). From experience or as a car enthusiast, how do these cars compare to each other? We usually buy but are con...

Re: Opening a Pediatric practice as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Is such a NP practice allowed in your state? Recently, here in Virginia, the law has changed to allow NPs to have practices - without being with a Physician. I am curious how many NPs will do this.

Opening a Pediatric practice as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner

Hi, I’ve been a Peds NP for about 10 years and am growing more interesting in potentially running my own office one day. I’ve done some research online and understand that my next step is probably to create a business plan. But I figured part of my research could be to poll those bogleheads with rel...
