Transient ischemic attacks, or TIAs, should no longer be thought of as mere “mini-strokes,” but rather harbingers of a bigger stroke to come, according to the American Heart Association.
Series 79, also known as the Investment Banking Representative Exam, is a Representative-Level test administered by FINRA. Anyone who passes the Series 79 test is qualified to advise on and/or facilitate debt and equity offerings, mergers and acquisitions, tender offers, financial restructurings, asset sales, divestitures (or other corporate reorganizations), and business combination transactions.
The statement gives medical providers guidelines on how to evaluate patients who suspect they’ve had a TIA. The condition occurs when a temporary blockage of blood to the brain produces strokelike symptoms that swiftly resolve.
Because symptoms tend to disappear within an hour, it can be hard to diagnose suspected TIAs, according to the guidance.
For years, TIAs were popularly nicknamed mini-strokes, but the term is a misnomer. In a news release, AHA officials say a TIA “is more accurately described as a warning stroke.” Though they are less severe than full-blown strokes, TIAs lead to full strokes in about 1 in 5 patients within three months. Nearly half of those full-blown strokes occur within just two days, the scientists write.
The guidelines call on medical providers to use both brain imaging and risk assessment scores to determine whether a stroke damaged the brain and point to patients at risk for a larger stroke. Providers should look into symptoms and medical history, then conduct a CT scan to rule out conditions that can mimic TIA.
Patients should get an MRI scan within 24 hours of the symptom onset, the report recommends.
Rural and underserved hospitals without on-site neurologists or with limited access to imaging should participate in telemedicine networks that connect providers to one another and transfer patients to hub hospitals for imaging or arrange for outpatient MRIs, the guidance states.
“Incorporating these steps for people with suspected TIA may help identify which patients would benefit from hospital admission, versus those who might be safely discharged from the emergency room with close follow-up,” said Hardik P. Amin, an associate professor of neurology who chaired the association’s scientific statement writing committee, in the news release. Amin is also the medical stroke director at Yale New Haven Hospital.
TIAs share the same symptoms as strokes: facial drooping, arm weakness, speech difficulty, dizziness. People with other cardiovascular risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure and smoking are at higher risk.

What’s the first thing a TV icon and multi-company owner does when she wakes up? It’s not checking in with her millions of followers on social media or launching into her inbox. Actress, author, and entrepreneur Tia Mowry starts her day by taking a solo moment to set her intentions.
“I wear so many different hats, so it’s really important to set boundaries to rest and reset,” says Mowry, who uses the hashtag #selfcareisntselfish on her social posts about beauty and wellness. “I used to be the person who would just get up and hit the ground running, but as I’ve gotten older I've really understood the power of setting your intentions.”
This sense of purpose is also the foundation of her existing venture as co-owner and founder of 4U by Tia, a hair care brand designed specifically for all curl textures. “We named the brand ‘4U’ because everyone deserves access to clean, high-performing curl care,” says Mowry, whose products are all priced at $11 or less.
The brand offers eight products formulated with a patented molecule called Hemi15, a natural alternative to silicone that protects and defines curls. Made from sustainable sugarcane, “it helps seal in moisture and nourishes curls from root to tip,” says Mowry. “As a mom, I’m all about turning a bottle around and reading the ingredients, so I am so fascinated by and excited about the natural and sustainable ingredients in my formulas.”
Here, Mowry shares her morning, which includes practicing mediation, listening to mood-boosting music, and doing a simple yet effective hair routine using 4U by Tia products.
“My alarm is my daughter and she wakes up every morning at 7 o’clock with, ‘Mommy, come to my room!’ I’ll tell her: ‘Mommy will be there in a bit!’ because before I go see her, I take a moment for myself. The first thing I do is meditate for five to ten minutes; sometimes it’s guided, depending on if I’m dealing with anxiety or having some sort of stress. I will also listen to binaural beats, which focus on brain wave activity to help you feel uplifted or energized. But also, it’s okay if there are some days that I can’t do these things. I want to be authentic about that. Then I go get in some time with my son and daughter before they head to school.”
“Once my daughter is off to school, I’ll look at my emails and check in with my team at 4U by Tia. I’m not a breakfast person, but I’ll have an oat milk latte or tea for a little brain boost. I’m into music so I love to set my mood in the morning with Tibetan bowls or jazz music. After that is when I get in my workout. Exercise is part of my mental health routine and I like to switch it up. I’ll work out at home or go to a dance-based class.”
“I keep a eucalyptus branch in my shower—I love scents and it really helps me feel rejuvenated. For my hair, I do a deep cleanse once or twice a week and wear a bonnet at night. In my new line, I have this amazing build-up-removing shampoo, 4U by Tia Clarifying Shampoo, which contains apple cider vinegar and sea moss extracts. I’ll use it with a scalp massage tool to help with circulation. It gets rid of impurities left from products I’ve used during the week—when you’re in the entertainment industry, you’re constantly getting your hair done. I follow that with the 4U by Tia Moisturizing Conditioner, which is one of my absolute favorite products because it helps detangle. It has watermelon extract, hibiscus oil, and, of course, Hemi15.”
“After washing, I use the 4U by Tia Leave-in Curl Cream, which I can’t live without. I like to apply it on wet hair because it really holds the product and helps shape the curl that way, but it can be used on dry strands too. I follow it up with the 4U by Tia Curl Defining Gel. It has aloe vera, flaxseed, and Hemi 15. You can touch and scrunch your hair without having any flakes. What I also love about this gel is that once my hair has dried—whether I’ve diffused it or air dried it—and I just want to, let’s say, put it in a high pineapple style in the evening before going out, it’s not going to frizz or lose its curl cast. It’s strong, but it gives you a natural look. A few times a week, I also use the 4U by Tia Multiuse Hair Oil on my ends before I diffuse so that they stay healthy.”
“I like to wash my face with a gentle, milky cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin. I follow it up with a creamy moisturizer on my face, neck, and hands.
For makeup, I love a multi-tasking pigment that I can use on my eyelids, cheeks, and lips. I’ll also use concealer under my eyes and to blot out blemishes and then fill in my brows.”
“When I’m getting my bag ready for the day, I definitely throw in the 4U by Tia Curl Refresher Mist. You can use it on any type of hairstyle—curly, twists, braids—and it has a nice smell. I love when you hug somebody and you’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, your hair smells so good!.’ It’s another mood booster.”
With so many financial products and services on the market today it can become difficult to determine what's beneficial and what's not. This is particularly true for life insurance, which comes in different types, coverage amounts and lengths.
Term life insurance policies, which provide coverage for a set period only, are usually cheaper to obtain. Whole life insurance policies, meanwhile, provide protection (and an attractive cash reserve) for the duration of the policyholder's life. But they're also more expensive.
One type of life insurance that may appeal to both young and old alike is no-exam life insurance. This type of insurance is exactly what its name suggests: No medical exam is required to secure a policy. But there's much more to this insurance than just its name. There are multiple benefits to know about.
If you're in the market for life insurance then start by getting a free price quote so you know exactly what to expect.
While this insurance type has multiple advantages, here are three of the most important ones to know.
The most obvious benefit of this kind of insurance is arguably also its most significant. Simply put: You won't have to take a medical test to get approved for coverage. Since many providers actually do require a medical test and the corresponding blood, urine and blood pressure tests, this can be an attractive alternative to getting protection.
Perhaps you're young and healthy and just want to expedite the approval process as much as possible. Then skipping the medical test can help secure a plan much quicker than if you had to schedule a visit with a medical provider first. Similarly, if you're an older adult and are concerned about what a medical test will reveal, you can elect to choose this insurance type and not worry about potentially negative test results.
Either way, by going this route you can skip the test and move one step closer to getting insured. You can get a free price estimate now.
As mentioned above, whether you're young, old or somewhere in between, a no-exam life insurance policy will cover you. This is especially helpful for those applicants who smoke or have a history of smoking. It's also generally good for those with pre-existing medical conditions that may have otherwise limited their ability to get a policy. And if you have a high-risk occupation, which may have disqualified you from coverage with another type of policy, you'll be covered with a no-exam policy.
If the life insurance company won't reject you due to the lack of a medical test and is willing to cover you regardless of your pre-existing conditions or history of smoking then the coverage is essentially guaranteed, no matter what box you check on your application.
Applying for life insurance, particularly for those people who fall into one or more of the above categories, can be a stressful process. You don't know if you will even qualify, let alone for how much or for how long. And if you don't get disqualified you'll have to start an application anew with another servicer.
Fortunately, no-exam life insurance eliminates all of this stress and work because coverage is guaranteed.
Everyone's personal circumstances are different. Accordingly, what type of life insurance policy works for one person may not work as well for another and vice versa. But no-exam life insurance takes a lot of the stress out of the equation by providing protection without a medical test for a wide range of applicants. And it's guaranteed!
So get started with a free price quote to see what you could qualify for now.

Growing up in Hollywood, Tia Mowry had a complex relationship with her hair. At auditions, casting directors deemed her curls "a distraction," and she was often warned she wouldn't fit many open roles if she wore them in their natural state. Not long after landing a starring role in the '90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," societal pressures and beauty standards made Mowry feel the need to conform and fit in by straightening her hair.
"I just felt lost," Mowry tells POPSUGAR. "Little did I know I was damaging my hair throughout the years. I continued to not have a relationship with it, not taking care of it, and just leaning into those insecurities." This went on for years, until everything changed in 2012 when she came across a natural hair movement on Instagram called the "Big Chop." Women were cutting their hair to shed years of damage, and Mowry was inspired. "They started all over from scratch," she says. "And that's exactly what I did: I followed in their footsteps, and from then on is when I really started to embrace my curls."
Mowry set out to relearn what her hair needed and the best products to style it. "I [started] creating concoctions, whether that was finding natural ingredients like flaxseed, aloe vera, rice water — stuff like that," she says. That's where the idea for her new hair-care brand 4U by Tia came about.
Image Source: 4U by Tia
Finally, after a tumultuous journey of self-love, Mowry has learned to fully embrace herself in her most natural state, and she hopes her brand can help others do the same. Designed for people with 2A to 4C curls, 4U is launching on Jan. 30 at Walmart with eight hair-care and styling products all priced at $11 or less. The project has been in the works for a few years, but really, it's been a long time coming.
Mowry had a few nonnegotiables when creating her beauty line. It needed to work for all curl textures, be affordable, and feel luxurious. "We deserve to be a part of the conversation, we deserve to be included, we deserve to feel valued," she says. "Everybody has the right and the privilege to be able to enjoy great products without feeling like they're breaking their bank."

From experience, she also knows how overwhelming the natural hair-care industry can be, especially when you're starting from scratch. "Many people don't necessarily even know what to do or where to start," Mowry says. "It's like every natural-hair girl can say they have about 20 or 30 products in their bathroom because they're just always trying to find a solution. And so I wanted to create a line that just simplified that routine."
That's how she came up with the eight products that are part of 4U by Tia's initial line: the Moisturizing Shampoo ($10) and Conditioner ($10), Clarifying Shampoo ($10) and Lightweight Conditioner ($10), Leave-In Curl Cream ($11), Curl-Defining Gel ($11), Curl Refresher Mist ($11), and Multiuse Hair Oil ($11). "These core eight is what, in my opinion, you really need," she says. Each product was carefully thought out and considered. For example, Mowry was passionate about creating a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that would also detangle to eliminate the need for two separate products. "I really wanted to get a nice moisturizing shampoo just to help with the experience of washing your hair, just making it easier."
Another product that has multitasking at its core is the hair oil. "You can put it on your scalp, you can put it on your ends," Mowry says. "If I'm slicking all of my hair back into a bun, I will put it all over my hair to just provide me that nice shine. And then also, because I'm in protective styles a lot, I will put it on my scalp." The curl mist, on the other hand, is Mowry's staple for restyling hair post-wash day. "I went out on a date with my son and I just refreshed my curls with the spray," she says.

Speaking of her kids, Mowry uses the products on them, too. "It works on my son's hair texture, which he has thicker [and] a little bit of a looser curl, whereas my daughter has a little bit of thinner but tighter curls, and it doesn't weigh any of their curls down," she says.
It's at this stage of Mowry's natural-hair journey where she feels her best. "When I feel empowered, when I feel beautiful, and when I feel like my authentic self, it's when my curls are out," she says. "Years ago, I would [have said] a sleek, straight look, but that's not it anymore."
As Mowry moves into a new phase of life, the multi-hyphenate celeb is partnering with WeightWatchers to share how she prioritizes her health.
Tia Mowry introduced a new partner in her life this week — and it’s one most might not expect. The multi-hyphenate entertainer, who already lists actress, producer, author, entrepreneur and mom among her many titles, can now add another to her growing resume: She is now the existing ambassador for WeightWatchers.
Announcing the news via TikTok on Thursday, the former “Sister, Sister” star treated followers to a throwback, donning a rosette-adorned, WW-branded denim bucket hat while promising to lighten up some of our favorite snacks from the ’90s and early aughts.
While the fit and toned Mowry might not evoke the typical WW clientele, the 44-year-old has long made health her priority. Her 25 million social media followers are no doubt well accustomed to feel-good posts broadcast from the veteran entertainer’s kitchen and workout sessions. In addition to hosting a former Cooking Channel series and now her own YouTube channel, “Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix,” she is also the founder of the vitamin supplement startup Anser, and launched a homewares collection, “Spice by Tia Mowry,” in 2021. Mowry is also the author of several books, including two health-focused cookbooks, “Whole New You: How Real Food Transforms Your Life, for a Healthier, More Gorgeous You: A Cookbook,” and “The Quick Fix Kitchen: Easy Recipes and Time-Saving Tips for a Healthier, Stress-Free Life: A Cookbook.”
However, what also makes Mowry an ideal ambassador for WW’s ethos of a balanced yet accountable approach to food and weight is her refreshing transparency about everything from how endometriosis affected her two pregnancies to how she navigated losing 68 pounds following the birth of her daughter Cairo in 2018.
“I’m very proud that I did it my way and in my time. I didn’t feel rushed to snap back,” wrote Mowry on Instagram in August 2020, later adding: “To all the women who are feeling pressured after birth. Do YOU! Do what makes YOU proud and do it in YOUR time. Not anyone else’s.”
According to a press release, Mowry, who made headlines when she announced the end of her 14-year marriage to fellow actor Cory Hardict in October, is feeling especially aligned in her new partnership with WeightWatchers. “I feel like we share the same passions,” she told People magazine. “Food, health and community.”
Promising to share “fun, exciting and recognizable recipes” with the WW community, Mowry’s passion for food will undoubtedly be at the forefront of the new alliance.
“Food is my love language. Food is how I nurture myself. Food is how I nurture my family, my friends,” said Mowry. “I absolutely get so excited when I create content around food. It never really feels like work for me. Cooking is how I wind down. It’s how I zen out.”
Since all food groups and foods are allowed on the points-based program, Mowry will have plenty to play with as she encourages subscribers to indulge in the same self-love she’s learned to embrace.
“[I]t’s all about encouraging people to experience and to explore nutrient-dense food[s]…that support a healthy lifestyle,” she told People. “It’s just about not feeling that you need to change yourself or minimize yourself or limit yourself to fit in societal standards. It’s just all about you loving yourself, and embracing who you truly are.”
