Abstract:
John Davis is the executive director of the Raleigh-based North Carolina Forum for Research and Economic Education (NCFREE). The organization was created in 1983 by a large cross-section of business leaders and lawyers. Davis was hired the same year. The founders wanted to understand the political process in the state, who the people were that ran for, or held office, how they voted, who backed them, and what underlying trends might change the state's political dynamics. The results of Davis's work are published in THE ALAMANAC OF NORTH CAROLINA POLITICS, which is often called the bible of North Carolina politics. Davis rates highly for his political insight, information gathering, and ability to forecast trends.

Abstract:
House calls by doctors were routine in the first third of the 20th-century. But with increasing demands on their services, doctors soon had to abandon the practice. Now a husband and wife team in Chapel Hill, Dr. Shohreh Taavoni and her husband Dr. Alan Kronhaus, have built a business around a return to this personal type of medical care. The business is called “Doctors Making Housecalls.” The physicians call on patients in homes, in managed-care facilities, and in offices where their patients work. Several hotels in the Research Triangle also call them when guests require care.
