RS Graphics Welcome to RS Graphics. My name is Ron Smith and I am a graphic designer who specializes in providing efficent solutions that provide beneficial returns. I believe that design can provide aesthetic beauty and communicate a message. I have studied communication design in the early 80s and have just received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design. This wide range of education has trained me with a strong technical background and a working knowledge of today's latest technology. While completing my degree, I have received training in the fine arts including oil painting, watercolor, printmaking, bookbinding, and letterpress. This has enabled my designs to not only be effective but also provide a strong eye-appeal with a lasting impression.

MONDAY, March 21 (HealthDay News) -- The American Heart Association is urging doctors to treat the worst cases of potentially life-threatening blood clots that form in the legs’ deep veins more aggressively. these clots can break loose and travel to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal. Each year in the United States more than 250,000 people are hospitalized for deep vein thrombosis, whose symptoms include sudden swelling and unusual pain, tenderness and warmth in a leg. Until now, there has been little guidance on how best to treat the most serious cases of the emergency condition, according to the heart association. For patients, the new guidelines should make a difference in outcomes, said co-author Dr. M. Sean McMurtry, an assistant professor of medicine in the division of cardiology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. “Ideally, it will lead to better care,” he said. “While most patients
