Following Twitter Tweets Beyond 10 Pages

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This post is for my friends and followers on Twitter (my profile). Have you ever woken up late and wondered what the people you’ve been following on Twitter have been up to? Maybe not, but I live on the West Coast and by the time I check in many UK and East Coast conversations have already passed me by. Your twitter homepage displays 20 of the past tweets made by those you are following. If you scroll down to the bottom of your homepage you’ll see there’s a button that says “older” which allows you to […]

Surface EMG & Thermography Sales

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’ve been talking quite a bit about getting more specific with creation of content for everything from local listings to classified advertising. I noticed some good examples earlier today of classified ad data that includes model number and location information, exactly the granular type of information I’ve been talking about. There’s a subcategory of the classifieds that features ads for thermography and surface EMG units. Looking at the screenshot we can see there are ads for a Thermeter / Neurocalometer which is wanted in Metairie, Louisiana. Someone in Downey, California is selling a Neurodyne Semg 7000 […]

Work Stress Subluxates Your Body

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. There was an article on Wednesday’s BBC news page about work stress causing changes in the body. The news coverage was of a study that showed findings indicating that a stressful job has a direct biological impact on the body and raising the risk of heart disease. Don’t believe stress causes physical changes? Spend a few hours a day sitting in traffic on the Los Angeles 4o5 freeway, and then another eight to 10 hours at work, spending a couple of more hours in congested traffic, on your way home. That results in some serious physical […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. A 26 year old premed student e-mailed me earlier this week about attending chiropractic school. I get frequent e-mails similar to the one I’m sharing here, so I wanted to address some of these questions in a post, rather than have to e-mail each person back individually. Dear Dr. Dorausch, I just read your article “Assessing the Salary of a Chiropractor” and I found it both realistic and insightful. I am a 26 year old post baccalaureate pre-medical student from Boston, MA. I have one more year before I complete the prerequisites needed to apply to […]

Running to Blow That Writer’s Block

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Running is just one of many forms of exercise that can help stimulate your mind and get your fingers moving forward, to unleash thoughts and ideas that may have been stuck somewhere in the back of your blogging head space. Early this morning I noticed a post to twitter from doshdosh in Toronto, Canada. Being the concerned citizen of the world that Maki is, he twittered his followers with the question: If you’ve ever got writer’s block before, how did you break through it? A number of people messaged back and I chimed in with: I […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is likely the most connected political figure to the profession of chiropractic, certainly the best known. Earlier, I was preparing a news article for the International Chiropractors Associations 16th annual fitness symposium when I noticed a number of various articles on Planet Chiropractic referenced Schwarzenegger. There was a February 2006 article regarding the appointment of chiropractor and bodybuilding legend, Franco Colombo, to the California State Board of chiropractic examiners. There was an August 2007 news article regarding the signing of the California budget, along with news about new Google news features. There […]

Chicago Airport WiFi not Free

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I have to imagine nearly all traveling bloggers love free Wi-Fi, especially when enduring long hours in airport terminals. I arrived at Chicago’s Midway Airport about an hour ago and was excited when I sat down and noticed a sign that read… Sign on to Wi-Fi (see photo below). As you can see in the photo the sign says… Use the official network of Midway International which is followed by Secure SSID concourse I mistakenly assumed the access would be free so I launched my Dell XPS and got ready to twitter some of my friends. […]

Chicagoland Chiropractors

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I’m writing this post from a Hilton hotel in Tinley Park, Chicago. I wanted to share some thoughts on local search in this area and offer some tips on getting more granular in creating local based content for small businesses. As my friends and I were driving around this weekend (in neighborhoods of Orland Park, Orland Hills, and Tinley Park), I was studying methods of outdoor marketing. When driving around areas like these (that I don’t often travel to) I find it valuable to pay attention to terms being used on billboards, signs, and other forms […]

Power Thoughts for Your Life

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I didn’t know whether to put this post in the philosophy section, marketing section, thoughts section, or photos section, since it could apply to any of those categories. I went with photos since the two images of the postcard below are what this post is about. Received this postcard from the office of Drs. Kathy McAuliffe and Laurie Mestdagh in Colombia Illinois and I liked it so much I wanted to make a copy of it for my own office in LA. It’s a simple postcard that packs a powerful punch. Great to be handed out […]

Twiistup 3 Draws Geeks and Nerds in LA

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Nothing like a Wednesday night at the Air-Conditioned Supper Club in Venice Beach California, hanging out with some of West LA’s biggest geeks and nerds. The digital media space in West Los Angeles has subtly been growning for the past few years now, and things are no longer as quiet as they used to be. I recall Brian Deagan, reporter for Investors Business Daily, commenting more than two years ago, that West Los Angeles will become a digital hub of Web 2.0 media. From the sold-out crowd I witnessed last night, I’d say Brian’s predictions are […]
