Medical bankruptcy is more common than you may think. With a barrage of medical bills, people can find themselves suddenly buried in debt. The actual medical bill itself is only the beginning when it comes to medical expenses, since out-of-pocket payments often amount to significant sums. Paying these bills can mean agonizing over liquidating assets set aside for other purposes, such as college tuition, retirement, and home equity. When those resources are depleted, bankruptcy is the only remaining option.

On Aug. 21, a total solar eclipse will be visible from coast to coast. It will be the first total eclipse visible only in the USA since the country’s founding in 1776.
The only moment it’s safe to look at the eclipse is during the 2-3 minutes when the sun is completely behind the moon. Before and after that – during the partial eclipse – special eclipse glasses, or welder’s goggles, must be worn. That’s because the sun’s surface is so bright that if you stare at any portion of it, no matter how small, it produces enough light to permanently damage your retina. Our eyes never evolved to look at the sun without suffering severe damage. Regular sunglasses are also not safe to use.
