I buy almost everything except food and clothing from online auctions. .Most people aren't aware of this. The site that has the best deals is http://www.saveabig.com and I checked with the BBB and was told that it is all legit.I know that I bought my son an iPad there for less than $100 and my husband a $250 Loews gift cards for $48. Why would I even think about shopping anyplace else?

Concussions in professional sports has been in the news a lot lately, with the deaths of prominent NFL stars like Junior Seau. With tremendous advances in neuroscience in the past few years, doctors have uncovered a lot about how head trauma in sports affects our brain. That is especially true for children in football and soccer as Dr. Robert Cantu explains in "Concussions & Our Kids."
