Michigan is the 38th state to take up a state wide smoking ban in restaurants. Not only will you not be allowed to smoke in restaurants, but any public place that employs people. This applies to places such as malls, concert halls, nursing homes and anyplace else that serves food or beverages or employs at least one person. For years, non-smokers have been complaining about the effects of second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke has been proven to cause many diseases, including lung cancer and upper respiratory infections. Waiters and waitresses have been trying to get away from second-hand smoke as well as patrons.
Unfortunately, the best viable option is for the smoker to take a good look at their health and situation and try to quit smoking. Kicking the habit will afford many benefits to a person's health. Easier breathing, less colds and infections, and healthy lungs, to name a few. Over 5,000 Michiganians lose their life each year due to tobacco. Health care costs are soaring. Michigan's ban on smoking will help drive down these costs for non-smokers who previously were exposed to the second-hand smoke.

A common misconception about Detroit is that the entire city is destitute and headed for complete disaster; when in fact the truth is that the city is making great strides to regain its high acclaim. With the restructuring of the big three, the heart of the American automotive industry; the constructing of the new light rail transportation; and the relocation of major corporations back to the city, these changes are all necessary elements for the equation of success and a booming and thriving economy for Detroit.
Though the housing market is lagging in recent advancements it will soon follow trend. Many investors understand the economic cycle and see Detroit as prime opportunity to begin using real estate as long term investment vehicles that offer steady high returns. Investors will earn steady rates of gain as long as they invest in the market while prices are at historical lows. Here are some common myths about Detroit that are actually quite unbelievable.
Detroit is all bad...
This is one of the funniest we've heard. Nothing is ever all bad. People, opportunities and situations are only bad when proper research and adequate time to investigate have not been given. It wouldn't be difficult to believe it with the way media portrays the city. Most things that make it to national headlines about the city are negative. It is true, Detroit has been hit hard during the economic crisis and one of the keys to reviving the city is rebuilding its infrastructure. Thus, the construction of major attractions like the Detroit International Riverwalk, a 102 million dollar development; Campus Martius Park; and the light rail transportation system. If the city was so terrible, organizations would not be investing hundreds of millions of dollars into an economy and city they felt wouldn't recover. They are making an investment into a city they believe will bounce back and once again be the home of major industries.
Don't believe the hype. With any large city there are good aspects and some not so good aspects. Investigate the matter further and do your due diligence to discover all the positive opportunities Detroit has to offer. Detroit currently presents a prime opportunity to build wealth through real estate investing. For more information of how you can take advantage of the opportunity, visit DetroitPropertyInvestor.com.
