You make appointments to get your hair cut. You take your car in to the shop when it makes strange noises. You drop your child off at school in the morning.

And every day you head in to work to do what you’ve been trained to do.
Recently, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made strides toward eliminating trans fats in the marketplace. The FDA preliminarily determined that hydrogenated oils, a large component of trans fats, are no longer “generally recognized as safe.”

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) created health insurance Marketplaces, or exchanges, to make it easier for people to compare and shop for insurance. It also facilitated the creation of new helpers—which may be called navigators, application assistors, or certified application counselors, depending on who provides the service and where they are located—to help people get through the process.
