Planning Resources by Setting

Long-term, Acute, and Chronic Care:

Individuals living in long-term, acute, and chronic care settings are among the most vulnerable populations during a public health emergency. Therefore, it is important for caregivers and planners who care for persons residing in these settings to be prepared and know how to respond in the midst of an emergency. The following resources are intended to provide guidance and assistance for long-term, acute, and chronic care facilities on how to plan for public health emergencies.

Healthcare Preparedness Activity Tools

  • Long-Term, Home Health, and Hospice Care Planning Guide for Public Health Emergencies
    The Long-Term, Home Health, and Hospice Care Planning Guide for Public Health Emergencies was developed to help improve the planning efforts of these healthcare entities and their coordination and integration within the community. This Planning Guide focuses on six topic areas: situational awareness, continuity of operations, facility or agency operations, crisis standards of care, staffing, and fatality management. Each topic area is presented in a manner that allows the user to develop needed sections in a facility or agency’s emergency preparedness and response plan.

Other Tools

  • AHRQ Emergency Preparedness Atlas: U.S. Nursing Home and Hospital Facilities
    This Atlas was designed by AHRQ to support state and local planning and response efforts for a bioterrorism or other public health emergency. It is intended to stimulate discussion about how nursing homes may be used to handle a surge of patients in response to emergency situations.
  • Emergency Planning Checklist (80 KB/6 pages)
    CMS developed this tool for persons in long-term care facilities and their family members, friends, personal caregivers, guardians, and long-term care ombudsmen.
  • Emergency Preparedness Checklist for Long Term Care Homes (74 KB/5 pages)

  • Pandemic Influenza Workbook for Long Term Care Providers (1.71 MB/92 pages)
    The California Association of Health Facilities provided this workbook as guidance to long-term care providers and to explain what providers should consider in preparing and making preparations for an influenza pandemic.

Reports and Guidance

  • AARP Tips to Help Older Americans Prepare for Emergencies
    AARP has compiled a list of resources to aid caregivers of older adults with preparedness planning.

Six tips for driving long distances

There is a real pleasure in driving long distances. Even on today s congested roads; the freedom, the sense of adventure, the sheer joy of the road unfolding before you. But without proper planning, your adventure could turn into a nightmare.

Here are our top tips on how to enjoy your long journey in safety.

1. Keep your car in good condition

If you keep your car serviced regularly and check the basics before a long journey, your car is unlikely to let you down.

This means checking the oil, water and fuel levels, making sure all your lights work, and making sure your tyres are at the correct pressure. By doing so you ll be avoiding the most common causes of breakdowns at a stroke.

Read our simple tips for maintaining your car

For extra peace of mind, you might like to consider taking out Saga Breakdown Assistance .

2. Pack an emergency kit

It s important to keep an emergency kit in your car at all times.

It needn t be expensive or take up much room, as it only needs to contain a first aid kit, spare fuses and bulbs for the car, a foot pump or tyre inflator, tyre pressure gauge, a litre of engine oil, a road atlas, a couple of snack bars and a bottle of drinking water.

If you add a couple of blankets and a shovel in the winter, this should help keep you mobile no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.

3. Plan your route

Why not plan your route to take in a tourist attraction or somewhere you d like to see? It might add time to your journey but you ll end up enjoying the trip more, breaking the monotony (important if you re using a lot of motorways), and turning a necessity into an adventurous road trip!

4. Take regular breaks

The Government s advice portal recommends taking a 15-minute break every two hours to avoid fatigue, a major cause of driver-related accidents.

It also suggests getting a good night s sleep before a long journey, stopping in a safe place whenever you feel tired, drinking a couple of cups of caffeinated coffee and taking a short snooze if you feel sleepy.

5. Entertainment

Don t worry, we are not about to suggest a game of i-Spy! Long journeys can get tedious, so why not try a spoken-word book instead of the radio? Most libraries will lend them to you for free and they re a great way to help the time fly.

6. Take the road less travelled

Why not dodge motorways and use smaller roads instead? Yes, it will take longer but it s bound to me more interesting, and even if you want to do the bulk of your journey on them why not detour for a break?

Websites like offmotorway.com and nearthemotorway.co.uk provide an easy way to find great, independent places to eat and stay that are the antithesis of corporate bland.


How Long Can Cord Blood Stem Cells Be Stored? #how #long #can


#

What Happens To Cord Blood Stem Cells After 20 Years of Storage

Companies have only started to store cord blood for the last 20 to 25 years or so, and for cord tissue a bit less than this. Given this limited time frame of those working in the field, there is no data on how well blood or tissue stores beyond 20 years. Studies have found, however, that cord blood may be able to be stored indefinitely at liquid nitrogen temperatures (-196 degrees Celsius), and there is no evidence that it degrades over time. Research conducted by one of the foremost experts on cord blood stem cells shows that after 23.5 years of storage, there was no degradation in the cord blood samples. In terms of payments, after 20 years of storage you can prepay $1999 for another 20 years of storage. It’s common to think of the payment process like life insurance. If you pay for the initial storage and cancel after 20 years, it’s like canceling life insurance early just because you’re still living.

Studies have found, however, that cord blood may be able to be stored indefinitely at liquid nitrogen temperatures (-196 degrees Celsius), and there is no evidence that it degrades over time.

Our Quality Promise

Americord is of the highest quality in cord blood and cord tissue storage. We believe in and follow all of the best practices for cord blood and cord tissue collection and storage. These include the following:

  • FDA
  • AABB standards
  • State guidelines
  • Federal guidelines and applicable licenses

Not only are our practices safe, but we also use the only commercially available FDA-approved sterile exterior cord blood bag that is on the market and the fastest medical courier. Using these quality methods and materials, we have been able to collect up to twice as much as other cord blood banks and industry standards. A larg er amount of stem cells opens up the possibility to treat larger patients or expand treatment options for smaller patients.

Long Term Disability Claims – Aaron Waxman Law #long #term #disability #insurance

Long-Term Disability Claims

Many employers offer long-term disability benefits to employees as part of their group benefit packages. Long-term disability benefits provide income replacement to those who are unable to work for an indefinite period of time due to an illness or injury. While every long-term disability policy is different, all policies require that an insured person satisfy a qualifying period (also known as an elimination period or waiting period), submit a complete application, provide updated medical application, participate in treatment/rehabilitation and be subject to a change of definition where the insurer s definition of disability changes from own occupation to any occupation.

The amount of your long-term disability benefit will depend on your policy. Benefit amounts can be equivalent to 50%-85% of your monthly income. Depending on your policy, your benefit may or not be taxable.

Long-term disability policies are complex and contain many provisions. Letters from the insurance company may contain terms that are ambiguous or unclear. A lawyer can help you to understand your insurance policy and any letters from your insurer.

If your application for long- term disability benefits has been denied, or your benefits have been terminated, you should not hesitate to seek legal advice. It is always important to understand your rights and your options with respect to a denial of benefits and to know that you can pursue a court action against your insurer.

The lawyers at Aaron Waxman and Associates have handled many claims for long-term disability benefit denials and helped many clients achieve the settlements they deserve.

If you have a question about long-term disability benefits, call or e-mail Aaron Waxman and Associates – there is no charge to call us and there are no bad questions.

Long-Term Disability Benefits for Fibromyalgia #long #term #disability #insurance


#

Long-Term Disability Benefits for Fibromyalgia

Long-term disability (LTD) insurance companies routinely deny or limit claims for long-term disability benefits based on fibromyalgia, a complex illness marked by chronic muscle and joint pain. Because there is no objective test for fibromyalgia and diagnosis is based largely on self-reported symptoms, many insurers specifically exclude fibromyalgia from coverage. Other carriers consider fibromyalgia primarily a mental disorder and will limit payments to 12 or 24 months.

Read your policy carefully to understand whether and for how long you can receive benefits based on fibromyalgia. The following language limiting eligibility is fairly typical.

Benefits will be terminated after 24 months for those with disabilities which are based primarily on self-reported symptoms, and disabilities due to alcoholism, drug abuse, or mental illness. Self-reported symptoms include manifestations of your condition that are not able to be verified using tests, procedures, or examinations commonly accepted in the practice of medicine, including headaches, pain, fatigue, soreness, numbness, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and loss of energy.

Even if your policy doesn’t specifically mention fibromyalgia as being excluded or limited, you should expect to meet substantial resistance if you file for LTD benefits based on fibromyalgia. Here are a few things to remember that could increase your chances of a successful claim.

Seek Appropriate Medical Treatment

Insurance companies are well aware that primary care physicians frequently diagnose fibromyalgia as a sort of “catch-all” when they cannot pinpoint the source of an individual’s pain. If you want your insurer to take your fibromyalgia claim seriously, it’s critical that you receive regular treatment from a rheumatologist, not just your family physician. Rheumatologists typically employ several different diagnostic techniques when evaluating a patient for fibromyalgia, including blood tests to rule out other illnesses and trigger point tests to locate areas of pain and tenderness. Generally an individual who reports pain in at least 11 of the 18 trigger points will receive a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. (Also see our article on getting Social Security for fibromyalgia. which discusses criteria used by the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) to determine when a patient has fibromyalgia.)

In addition to making a more accurate and credible diagnosis, a rheumatologist may be better able to prescribe therapies for your particular symptoms. Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, it is often possible to control the pain and accompanying fatigue through medication, exercise, and a proper diet.

Record All Your Symptoms

In addition to chronic pain, many fibromyalgia sufferers also experience headaches, numbness, swelling, fatigue, IBS, and difficulty sleeping. Fibromyalgia may also adversely affect a person’s mental health, causing cognitive problems (often called “fibro fog”), depression, stress, and anxiety. Keeping a diary of all your symptoms, both mental and physical, will help your physicians diagnose and treat your illness, and may help to persuade your insurer that your condition is legitimate.

Obtain Opinions From Your Doctors

The opinion of your treating physician can literally make or break your LTD case, and it’s especially important in cases involving fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and other conditions that don’t lend themselves to objective testing. You or your attorney should ask your physician (preferably your rheumatologist) to identify the extent of your work-related limitations, especially in the following areas:

  • length of time you can sit, stand, and walk
  • amount of weight you can lift and carry, and
  • ability to bend, stoop, balance, crouch, and crawl.

Also, would you miss days of work or have to take unscheduled breaks during the workday due to pain, fatigue, or other issues? Would you need to recline or lie down during the day? Your doctor should be asked about any limitations that might prevent you from performing the demands of full-time work. It is also be helpful for your rheumatologist to explain what diagnostic testing was performed and why she ultimately believed a fibromyalgia diagnosis was supported by the medical evidence.

If you’re receiving mental health treatment for depression, also ask your doctor or psychologist for an opinion as to your mental limitations, including your ability to maintain regular attendance, sustain attention and concentration, understand and carry out instructions, and interact with supervisors, co-workers, and the general public.

Your lawyer should be able to supply a fibromyalgia assessment form for your doctor that encompasses all your possible limitations. Do not rely on the forms used by your insurance company, as they are often designed to elicit responses that could form the basis for a denial.

Reports from third-parties such as friends, family members, and former colleagues can also help bolster an LTD disability claim, but only if they’re limited to first-hand observations of your condition rather than opinions about your medical issues.

Pursue Your Claim With the Help of an Experienced Lawyer

Whether you have an individual LTD policy or an employer-provided group plan, your policy is likely to be complex and riddled with exceptions, exclusions, and limitations. It’s important, especially in notoriously challenging claims involving fibromyalgia, that you have an experienced LTD attorney on your side to help you meet deadlines and pursue your appeals while putting your case in the best possible light. You should be able to set up a free consultation with an LTD lawyer before you hire one.

Facts and Case Summary – Morse v. Frederick

Morse v. Frederick, 551 U.S. __, 127 S. Ct. 2618 (2007)
School authorities do not violate the First Amendment when they stop students from expressing views that may be interpreted as promoting illegal drug use.

Facts

Joseph Frederick, a senior at Juneau-Douglas High School, unfurled a banner saying “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” during the Olympic Torch Relay through Juneau, Alaska on January 24, 2002. Frederick’s attendance at the event was part of a school-supervised activity. The school’s principal, Deborah Morse, told Frederick to put away the banner, as she was concerned it could be interpreted as advocating illegal drug activity. After Frederick refused to comply, she took the banner from him. Frederick originally was suspended from school for 10 days for violating school policy, which forbids advocating the use of illegal drugs.

Procedure

The U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska ruled for Morse, saying that Frederick’s action was not protected by the First Amendment. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed and held that Frederick’s banner was constitutionally protected. The U.S. Supreme Court granted certiorari.

Issues

Whether a principal violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment by restricting speech at a school-supervised event when the speech is reasonably viewed as promoting illegal drug use.

Ruling

Reasoning

In Tinker v. Des Moines (1969), the Court stated that students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Tinker held that the wearing of armbands by students to protest the Vietnam War was constitutionally protected speech because it was political speech. Political speech is at the heart of the First Amendment and, thus, can only be prohibited if it “substantially disrupts” the educational process.

On the other hand, the Court noted in Bethel v. Fraser, 478 U.S. 675, 682 (1986) that “the constitutional rights of students at public school are not automatically, coextensive with the rights of adults.” The rights of students are applied “in light of the special characteristics of the school environment,” according to the U.S. Supreme Court in Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier, 484 U.S. 260, 266 (1988).

In the present case, the majority acknowledged that the Constitution affords lesser protections to certain types of student speech at school or school-supervised events. Finding that the message Frederick displayed was by his own admission not political in nature, as was the case in Tinker, the Court said the phrase “Bong Hits 4 Jesus” reasonably could be viewed as promoting illegal drug use. As such, the state had an “important” if not “compelling” interest in prohibiting/punishing student speech that reasonably could be viewed as promoting illegal drug use. The Court, therefore, held that schools may “take steps to safeguard those entrusted to their care from speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use” without fear of violating a student’s First Amendment rights.

Concurrences

Justice Thomas

Justice Clarence Thomas concurred with the majority, but argued that, instead of making exceptions to the holding in Tinker, Tinkershould be overturned. Citing various scholarly sources on the history of public education, Justice Thomas argued that the First Amendment was never meant to protect student speech in public schools.

Justices Alito and Kennedy

Justices Alito and Kennedy concurred with the majority, but were careful to note that the majority’s decision was at the outer parameters of constitutionally protected behavior. These justices were concerned that the majority’s decision permitting the suppression of speech promoting illegal drug use could be used to punish those advocating constitutionally permissible, but unpopular, political ideas, e.g. legalizing medicinal marijuana use.

Concurrence and Dissent

Justice Breyer

Justice Stephen Breyer argued that the majority did not need to decide this case on its merits, but could have decided it on the basis of the doctrine of “qualified immunity.” Qualified immunity prevents government officials, such as a school principal, from being sued for actions taken in their official capacities. This protection is in place as long as the legality of the conduct is open to debate. Since Justice Breyer argued that it was not clear whether Frederick’s speech was constitutionally protected, Morse was entitled to qualified immunity. This decision would demonstrate judicial restraint, i.e. not having a court decide a larger issue if deciding a smaller issue could dispose of the case.

Under current Supreme Court precedent, issues of qualified immunity cannot be decided unless a Court first determines that a constitutional violation occurred. Justice Breyer took the position that this precedent should be overturned. Since the majority decided that no constitutional violation occurred, it did not address the issue of qualified immunity.

Dissent

Justice Stevens

Justice John Paul Stevens took the position that the school’s interest in protecting students from speech that can be reasonably regarded as promoting drug use does not justify Frederick’s punishment for his attempt to make an ambiguous statement simply because it refers to drugs. Justice Stevens made several points in his dissent. First, he argued that prohibiting speech because it advocates illegal drug use, unless it is likely to provoke the harm sought to be avoided by the government, violates the First Amendment because it impermissibly discriminates based upon content. Second, even if the school had a compelling interest to prohibit such speech, Frederick’s banner was so vague that a reasonable person could not assume that it advocated illegal drug use. Finally, the dissent took issue with the majority’s justification that the speech could “reasonably be perceived as promoting drug use” because the constitutionality of speech should not depend on the perceptions of third parties.


Long Island foster dad acquitted of sexual abuse charges – NY Daily

Long Island foster dad accused of sexually abusing eight children in his care acquitted on all charges

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Updated: Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 9:24 PM

A Long Island jury, after seven tumultuous and teary days, delivered a stunning acquittal to a man charged with sexually abusing his foster sons over a period of 19 years.

The Suffolk County panel found defendant Cesar Gonzales-Mugaburu not guilty of 17 criminal counts for what prosecutors had called a relentless reign of sexual abuse and terror.

“Difficult deliberations, sleepless nights, very difficult work,” juror Gregory Condemi, 59, of Ridge, L.I. said after the verdict was read. “People were physically ill. One girl had high blood pressure.

“There was dizziness, fainting, stomach problems.”

The cascade of “not guilty” for each charge came despite graphic and grotesque testimony of rampant sexual and physical abuse from all eight of the foster kids inside the defendant’s Ridge home.

Gonzales-Mugaburu, 60, stood silently with tears welling in his eyes outside the courthouse after the jury let him walk. He faced up to 50 years in prison.

In contrast, one of his foster kids, 29-year-old Mark Gonzales-Mugaburu, was left devastated and weeping by the verdict.

“I’m at a loss for words,” said Mark, who was legally adopted by his foster dad. “Our fight, our testimony just went down the drain. He always had the system wrapped around his pinky. He did it again.”

Even worse, he said, was the worry that none of the boys were safe anymore.

“We have to live with this fear for the rest of our lives, that we got physically, mentally and sexually abused — and he’s a free man today,” he said.

The eyes of several jurors were also glistening when they returned with the verdict at 11:30 a.m.

(David Wexler for New York Daily News)

Jury foreman Tim Carney, after reading the verdicts aloud, said the jury was divided for days before finally reaching a consensus.

“It was hard, a lot of emotions in the room,” said Carney, 48, of Islip. “It was tough.”

But he and other jurors agreed that prosecutors, despite doing a good job, never proved their case against Gonzales-Mugaburu.

Some cited a lack of physical evidence to back up the vile stories told by the young witnesses. Others wondered why some potential prosecution witnesses — including the case’s main investigator, Suffolk police Detective Michelle DiMartino — were not called.

“It was kind of a cliffhanger,” said juror Louise Corcoran, 48, of West Islip. “We were waiting for the rest of the story. It never came.”

DiMartino, who interviewed all the alleged victims during the police investigation, declined comment when asked why she wasn’t called to testify.

“All I can say is that it’s horrendous,” she told the Daily News.

DiMartino’s name came up several times during the trial, but prosecutors repeatedly refused to say why the detective didn’t take the stand.

The jurors were initially split 10-2 in favor of an acquittal, and needed a full seven days to reach a consensus.

The boys testified that they were raped and sexually assaulted at Gonzales-Mugaburu’s whim, and subjected to physical and emotional abuse.

A Suffolk County jury needed seven days to return its stunning verdict in the case against Cesar Gonzales-Mugaburu.

In contrast, Gonzales-Mugaburu declined to take the witness stand in his own defense in the trial that began March 29. He was accused of sexually abusing six of the youngsters, and endangering the welfare of the other two.

Prosecutors acknowledged they were blindsided by the jury’s decision.

“We’re surprised with the verdict,” said Dari Schwartz, Suffolk district attorney bureau chief of child abuse and domestic violence.

“We’re disappointed in it,” she continued. “The children weren’t believed. It was heartbreaking and I imagine when the children hear the verdict they too will be broken.”

None of the defendant’s accusers were in the courtroom to hear the verdict.

Gonzales-Mugaburu returned to his suburban home after the verdict. Ignoring a “CONDEMNED” sign, he climbed in through a basement window. The house was condemned in January after falling into disrepair. But Gonzales-Mugaburu was allowed to remain after a visit from the Suffolk County police.

His lawyer, Donald Mates, tossed three bags of clothes over a fence around the property.

“Obviously he’s very happy, very emotional,” said Mates outside the courtroom. “We can just hope he gets his good name back after it’s been smeared over the past year and a half.”

Gonzales-Mugaburu would likely have faced additional accusers, but the state’s statute of limitations on child sex abuse cases had run out on some of the children’s claims.

The News led the fight last year to pass the Child Victims Act, which would eliminate the current law requiring child sex abuse victims to seek criminal charges or civil penalties by age 23.

The boys were sent to live in a suburban home that prosecutors described as a house of horrors.

(Debbie Egan-Chin/New York Daily News)

The legislation, first introduced in 2006, has failed to pass on five occasions.

Prosecutors charged the defendant turned perversion into profit, raking as much as $18,000 a month in city and state foster care payments for taking the boys into his home.

During his two decades as a foster dad, Gonzales-Mugaburu took in as many as 140 children into the home — and collected more than $1.5 million.

He was arrested in March 2015 after two of the kids reported the sexual abuse charges to a caseworker. It marked the first prosecution of Gonzales-Mugaburu despite 18 earlier child abuse investigations.

Gonzales-Mugaburu’s Long Island neighbors were less than enthused to see him back.

“I’m stunned, stunned by the outcome,” said resident Anne Lange. “The kids made no impression at all? I feel like the kids got no justice at all.”

She and husband Mike, a retired Suffolk police officer, noted the local school bus drops students off right next to the acquitted man’s house.

The 70-year-old ex-cop said he wished the boys in the house had spoken with him.

“The kids never said a word to me,” he said. “I had a police car parked right outside for years. It didn’t stop it.”

Hiring a Swimming Pool Contractor on Long Island and Some of The Mistakes People Make:

Shopping For A Pool Is Different Than Going To A Store To Buy An Item: Swimming pools are custom construction projects and are built by many Long Island pool contractors with different standards. All swimming pools are not built the same, unlike an automobile or electronic device which is manufactured in a factory. With a swimming pool installation, much of what you do not see will impact the cost of pool ownership.

Not Asking Enough Questions: Do not assume every builder is going to give you an education about constructing a new swimming pool. The more you know about swimming pool construction, the better buyer you will be. Do your homework before looking for a pool and make a list of questions you may not be clear about. Use your resources wisely.

Overwhelmed By Too Many Options: Getting too many estimates for swimming pool construction leads to not being able to make a decision. People become so confused. Gather a few estimates from reputable Long Island swimming pool companies. With this info you should be able to make your decision and just go with it.

Not Researching Experience, Licenses, or Background of a Swimming Pool Contractor: What makes them qualified to build swimming pools? Are they licensed and insured? What about local references?

Shopping Soley Based on Price: You get what you pay for. If you shop for price alone, you are already in trouble and headed for disaster. Bottom line: you get what you pay for!

Shopping Over The Phone: Don’t make this silly mistake. Visit the Long Island swimming pool builder or have them come to your home to provide you with a swimming pool estimate. Visiting a pool contractor’s business will tell you a lot about the type of business it is.

Not Thinking About Safety: Swimming pools are a great form of recreation and excersise. However, they can also be dangerous. A qualified swimming pool contractor can tell you the local codes for fencing and barriers. Make sure you protect your loved ones by following these strict guidelines.

Gappsi’s team of swimming pool contractors and designers, can help lead you to the right path for you swimming pool installation. Call us today at (631) 543-1177.

Long Beach Hotels And Motels

I stayed there awhile ago.I wanted to post a review because I have to give the management praise for awesome service.Its been about a yr so unsure if its same management.Its the couple who runs the place that made the stay there mhch more pleasant.They went out of their way to accommodate us.Always extremely friendly,professional, if ever an issue arised they were prompt to take care of itRomm we had had newer wood flooring,extremely clean.There were a few roaches,older tv that didnt really wrk,no mini fridges for wkly guests bed was higher on one side.Even with the things that weren’t acceptable I was still happy only due to awesome couple who manages the motel. If it werent for them i would prabably give a one star.But havong ppl such as them made a world of a difference. I would recommend it if your on a budget in a jam and need the bare necessities to be satisfied. Great customer service goes a long way. Perfect example of that with managers like they have there.

Long Beach Inn is truly the best. We were there for a wedding and stayed for a week. This motel is convenient to everything with its central location if you plan to visit Los Angeles and its many tourist and business attractions (The location was very convenient to everything we wanted to do). Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, and the rate was much lower than most places we looked at in the city. The energy of the multicultural neighborhood was invigorating. The motel staff could not have been more gracious and helpful. We had a great time and We’d recommend this motel to friends, without a doubt. Excellent location on Pacific coast hwy and very close to Long Beach downtown and convention center.

WELL COME TO SILVER SAND PROPE.

Can I get an insurance quote for a one year policy? #car

Can I get an insurance quote for a one year policy?

If you can get a quote for a policy that lasts one full year will depend upon where you live and if an insurer in your area offers a 12-month policy.

Most car insurance companies will offer only six-month policies, but there are those that do offer 12-month policies. Some car insurance companies that offer 12-month policies include:

  • Erie Insurance
  • Infinity
  • Liberty Mutual
  • MetLife
  • National General Insurance (formerly known as GMAC Insurance)
  • The General
  • The Hartford
  • USAA

At CarInsurance.com, we work with some of these car insurance carriers that offer 12-month policies; thus it may be possible for you to obtain an annual policy.

Start now by finding car insurance companies in your area

The underwriting rules and guidelines of car insurance companies vary and will determine if you re eligible to be offered a 12-month policy. This means just because an insurance company may say it offers a 12-month policy, it doesn t mean you’ll be found suitable according to a company s underwriting criteria.

If one of our carriers finds that you qualify for a 12-month policy and offers it in your area, you will see a term of 12 months displayed on our rates page.

If you need insurance and cannot afford a large down payment we offer many payment plans to help you purchase the policy that you need whether it’s a six-month policy or 12-month, annual policy.

If you purchase an insurance policy through CarInsurance.com, we accept payment from checking accounts, savings account or prepaid debit card, as well as the certain credit cards including Visa and MasterCard.

Compare car insurance rate quotes and see the what policy term we have to offer you.

10 Things You Should Know About Long-Term Care

Updated January 2015

As the population ages, more and more of us will require long-term care for our families and ourselves. The numbers are astounding. By 2050, there will be 80 million Americans 65 and older — twice as many as today. But many people are confused about what long-term care entails and who pays for it. Take our quiz to see how much you know about long-term care and how you can prepare for what could be one of the biggest expenses of your life.

What our guests experienced

Everything was perfect. Walking up and down the stairs everyday was a good workout. Overall a positive experience!

This was a terrific one bedroom paris apartment and a terrific neighborhood in Ile Saint Louis. The greeting, checkout and landlord were terrific. Everything was perfect. We had a plumbing problem and they took care of immediately and with now trouble to us. I give them all the highest ratings and recommendation.

Apartment was excellent.

I really enjoyed staying at this Paris short term appartment rental during my stay in Paris. The Landlord was very friendly and everytime I called him (questions, or when something was not working) he immediately helped me out.

  • Computer Training Center – Hackers For Charity #hackers #for #charity, #hfc, #ihs,


    #

    History

    When we began working in Uganda, we came with a vision of partnering with schools in the area and providing them with computer labs to help train their students. We engaged in six such projects: one in Kenya, one at St. John s Wakitaka in Uganda, and three for AOET in and around Jinja Uganda.

    The school in Kenya was the biggest success. There, equipment was procured locally, maintained locally and the program was run by locals. Hundreds of students were trained. All we did was send money.

    The St. John s project was a mixed success. We brought in 20+ used laptops, 12 brand-new desktop workstations, installed it and paid for furniture and power. Within a short period of time, we found the classroom in disarray. We found food and drinks in the lab, equipment was dirty, and all the guidelines we set forth in our training document were ignored. Eventually we removed the brand-new workstations and repurposed them, leaving the laptops. To this day, the staff of St. John s is taking care of the laptops.

    The AOET projects turned out the worst. That debacle is chronicled elsewhere on this site. We came to the realization that school computer labs are. difficult. Equipment dropped in the hands of a school (whether the staff is trained or not) ends up destroyed in a very short period of time. The schools typically close their doors to outsiders when they get computers, and in the end, a large financial and time investment only ends up serving a small group. Now, we don t do schools, but focus on community training centers which we can man with trained staff. Our doors are open to the community and to neighboring schools, and we get the biggest impact for our donor s money.

    We are experimenting with variations on this theme and are scoping locations and worthy recipients for smaller, localized training centers, but our crown jewel is the Hackers For Charity Computer Training Center in Jinja, Uganda.

    About the Center

    In poverty-stricken parts of the world, it s no secret that job training is key to interrupting the cycle of poverty. Most job training programs focus on local trades: tailoring, wood working, farming, etc. However, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is an overlooked and understaffed job market, especially in underdeveloped countries where computers and technology trainers are scarce. But in many underdeveloped countries, like Uganda, the market for qualified ICT staff is set to explode thanks to broadband initiatives like the fiber lines running from Mombasa, which has already reached downtown Jinja, the site of our center.

    With the stage set for a new job market, our goal is to provide world-class training of all levels to those that could not normally afford it. Since this is a non-profit community-based venture funded by outside projects (such as our Internet cafe and restaurant), our pricing model is extremely aggressive. Since most locals can afford to spend time in Internet cafes at a rate of 60 to 75 cents per hour, our pricing starts at only 50 cents per hour. We also offer scholarships to driven, dedicated individuals that can not afford this rate, and we offer free training to NGO staff, government employees, police officers and more. On any given month, 75% of our students train for free.

    This model of training provides hands-on computer experience which sets our users apart from even ICT university graduates, most of whom have never touched a computer during their studies. We also provide training in the form of video-based CBTs and course materials. Video-based training allows students to take training at their own pace, and helps us keep costs down since we do not have to hire instructors. Unlike typical training business which can charge several months salary for a single
    course, we never charge for training. Students only pay for computer usage time, whether they access our training resources or not.

    About Our Training

    Our e-book library gives students access to thousands of electronic computer reference and training books which litter our shelves in the West but are not available in most countries in Africa. We offer video training and certificate courses in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and many other commonly used software packages. We also offer international certification courses found nowhere else in Uganda including CISCO INTRO and ICND, CISSP, Network+, Certified Ethical Hacking, and Mile2s certifications which cover penetration testing, wireless, secure coding, computer forensics and more. Armed with these internationally-recognized certifications, our students can land jobs located (virtually or physically) anywhere in the world.

    Our course material is donated from generous private and corporate donors and due to bandwidth limitations, all content is stored locally on our servers within the center. Contact us if you are interested in donating content to our training center, or use the donation form to the right to make a financial donation.

    Our current donors include:

    Michael Gregg of Superior Solutions. Inc donated a huge box of his highly-regarded certification test prep books and video-based training based on the CISSP, and other world-renown certifications.This donation retails for several hundred US dollars.

    The folks at Mile2 were gracious enough to donate their entire course library to our efforts, a donation retailing for thousands of dollars. We are working to integrate these excellent certification courses into our curriculum.

    Peter over at The Academy was kind enough to donate his entire library of training videos! These videos cover all sorts of amazing system administration, security and networking topics in very cool bite-sized video chunks.

    Lynda.com donated ten CDs of their training material including Microsoft Word 2003 and 2007 Essentials, Excel 2003 and 2007 Essentials, PowerPoint 2003 and 2007 Essentials, Access 2003 and 2007 Essentials, Windows XP Essentials and Windows Vista Essential, a donation retailing for approximately $500 US.

    Total Training provided us with a discount on a large training purchase, which included their Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master collection and Advanced Design Bundle. The discount saved us approximately $250.

    Laura Chappell donated 75 copies of her Master Library, covering some awesome network and protocol analysis topics. The set retails for thousands of dollars.

    The Goodwill Community Foundation offers some pretty slick training in lots of computer-related topics, and its all FREE! Its really great stuff. One of our volunteers in the US was kind enough to send a DVD of their courses.

    Even Hotels, a new idea in hotels

    Totally different from ANY hotel that I have ever stayed in. I called it a new idea because I had never seen a hotel that focuses so much on wellness. The food in they serve and sell is focused on [More] your health. They have FREE filtered water and ice in the lobby and all on all the EVEN floors. The rooms have an open space cork floors, an exercise ball, a workout station with elastic bands and ropes. The TV defaults to channels showing exercise techniques to use these devices. AND if you want to use the gym, they have a very large two story area with weights and all the latest tech in exercise stuff. OK, I said all that but I never look for these things in a hotel. I am a rotund person who rarely uses exercise equipment. The hotel suits the needs for a good, fun, friendly stay near major attractions (like a short walk to Barclay Center). The TV had many more channels than i see at most hotels including all the normal favorites. The TV was big and was mounted on a a flex arm so it could be adjusted for almost any angle. I loved the hotel, the rooms, the beds were comfortable, the filtered water was great and the bathroom and showers were fantastic. AND THE STAFF. GREAT. Friendly, fun and helpful. There is a large mall across from Barclays Center, and IHOP and CVS the next block over, a Shake Shack near and tons of local food nearby. The lobby is setup up to read or meet. They have comfortable chairs, couches, books, games and work area with new Apple Macs and printers. There is a cute enclosed garden area right off the lobby with comfy benches and flowers. The Brooklyn EVEN hotel had just opened in July but my grandson and I arrived for our stay in the last week of August and things were running well. Why is it called EVEN Hotels? Who knows. BUT they made the theme so they have only Even number rooms and the free water/ice stations are on the Even floors too. Love the place. I just hope that it doesn’t get so popular that the prices go way up. [Less]

    Our first time at an Even hotel and we were impressed. Rooms are large by the metro area standards and were fresh. It was a good idea to have a partial rug around the bed with a cork-like flooring [More] for the rest of the room, which added to the clean lines. Work station is nice for office/business work you may have. The in room fitness equipment allows for a private in room morning stretch before taking a shower. Lobby is comfortablle and restaurant is nice for a light meal or late evening snack at the bar. [Less]

    Convenient and Energetic Hotel in Downtown Bklyn

    By Traveling NoVA

    Hotel is well situated for restaurant row on Smith Street and near Barclay Center for sports events. It is also a short cab ride or long walk to DUMBO! Exercise equipment in room is great for [More] core workouts and there is a.TRX in the gym for those who use it. The ginger/lime water in the lobby was delicious and encouraged hydration. Breakfast in Kork and Kale was a little chaotic. Food was delicious with some clever healthy and tasty twists in the ingredients. [Less]

    Really Beautiful Boutique

    The receptionists Breun and Shakira were very friendly. The hotel staff greeted us with a glass of champagne and a nice welcome gift. The supervisor Sue was superb. She gifted me with a cheesecake [More] from Juniors on behalf of her and the hotel staff for my birthday. I loved the staff. They were friendly and down to earth. I would highly recommend. The hotel is located in Downtown Brooklyn, making it accessible to all of the amazing attractions that Brooklyn has to offer. [Less]

    This is a great hotel. Kortney (sp) is so awesome! He was always friendly and informative. He helped us repeatedly. The hotel is nice, clean, very quick to respond when we needed something for our [More] room. I would love to see K-cup coffee machines in the IHG family. I will not recommend using their 3rd party parking garage. We were told at chick in that the garage was indoor, it is not. My car came back filthy, dried plywood on the hood, it had to be peeled off, a scratch on the passenger mirror where a car door hit it, a ding-dent on cabin, dried rusty water on paint, minor scratches on paint, scratches on door as if it hit something when opened. [Less]

    Clean and good service

    Clean and comfortable room. Informative front desk staff. [Less]

    Conveniently located and good value

    Candlewood Suites is a good value hotel centrally located near Times Square. Excellent staff, clean accommodations and good internet connectivity. The only drawback is that my room did not have a [More] closet, which was a bit of a challenge, given that I was in NY on business and had clothing that needed to be hung up. I ended up using the bathroom shower curtain bar and that worked reasonably well. [Less]

    Holiday Inn Express & Suites Phoenix Airport

    Good family experience

    A great place for a family gathering stay. The suite was spacious and the whole family enjoyed the pool. Breakfast was very good. The kitchenette in the suite was well stocked and helpful. [Less]

    This is our second stay at the Staybridge Suites for baseball tournaments. Our experiences here have been more than wonderful. Friendly staff, ease and convenience of group reservation and rates, [More] comfortable, clean, great amenities. The location is also superb, right across WestGate Center with lots of shopping, places to eat, things to do. like movie theater and Dave and Busters to name a few. Close to the neigboring baseball locations too! [Less]

    very clean.well kept and friendly.a great place! will return if in area again will give two thumbs up [Less]

    My suite of rooms was extremely comfortable and quiet even though we were next to a busy street. The lounge area in the lobby was nice and we all enjoyed ending the day over a glass of wine before [More] dinner. I would definitely like to stay here again! [Less]

    Great location and service

    The staff was very considerate and helpful. This was a combination leisure trip and medical visit. Staying at the Holiday Inn Express made it very enjoyable. [Less]

    Pool is great. Breakfast is OK. Staff is wonderful. A/C wasn’t great in our 3rd floor (top floor) room, since it was well over 100 F every day. It only cooled the bedroom, not the living room / [More] bathroom areas. [Less]

    Great Choice for the Price

    Newly remodeled hotel (still some going on I guess). Rooms are nice, easy to book and check-in and out is easy. Only downfall is the lack of great food options within walking distance. [Less]

    Newly renovated rooms

    How I would love a mirror and light at the desk area. Other than that, the new rooms are wonderful. [Less]

    Wonderful birthday gathering!

    We had multiple guestrooms for family from out of town. Most, but not all, were able to be on the 4th floor, which was great (new renovation). We understood that the renovations were behind [More] schedule, so that was the only downside of our stay. The birthday party hors d’oeuvres, drinks and meal was excellent. The bartender (Mitch) really went with the flow. Our servers (Beatrice and Somi) were very attentive and efficient. The event/sales staff (Rosalen and Warren) made us all feel very special.

    71 Michigan Long Term Alcohol And Drug Rehab Centers

    Let’s discuss the latest statistics—numbers that represent a larger whole, numbers that can be startling when you think about them. More than half of Michigan residents drink alcohol, with more than a quarter of the adult population admitting to binge drinking. Added to that, 16% of kids age 12-17 admit to drinking and 10% of those kids admit to binge drinking. What about illegal drug use? Just over 10% of Michigan residents 12 and older report using drugs in a 12 month period.

    Is that startling to you? What should be more alarming is the fact that these statistics are dependent on the honesty of those polled. How accurate do you really think those numbers are?

    Here are some statistics that can’t lie. In Michigan since 2009, poisonings have surpassed motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of injury or death. Ninety percent of all poisonings involve drugs.

    Long Term Rehab in Michigan Offers Hope

    While there are many recovery options for those who have an issue with alcohol and/or substance abuse, long term rehabilitation offers the best hope for successful recovery. Long term rehab has a more extensive program that will keep patients in a secluded, clean environment for a longer duration, and create a recovery plan for life that addresses relapse triggers. These facilities can aid admitted patients with life changes and communication issues, as well as provide family counseling and job skills training.

    Locating a Long Term Rehab Facility in Michigan

    With hundreds of programs to choose from, the task of finding the right one might seem daunting. When you start to narrow down the facilities that offer long term services, you want to look at the specifics of their program to find the right fit. For example, in Ann Arbor, Dawn Farm offers a long term residential treatment program set on an actual farm. Part of the course of treatment includes caring for animals and organic gardening.

    Brighton Hospital in Brighton, Michigan. also has a long term facility with 24 hour inpatient care. The grounds at Brighton are peaceful and transitional housing for both men and women is offered. Because a long term recovery needs a long term solution, Brighton offers programs for patients in recovery even after they leave the facility.

    Sacred Heart Recovery in Detroit believes that financial, cultural, racial, gender, age, or lifestyle barriers to recovery should never prevent an addict from getting help. Their individual recovery plans include a combination of group and individual therapies combining principles of Alcoholics Anonymous with evidence based professional therapies.

    You can find the right long term rehab program for you. Contact RehabCenter.net for more information on Michigan’s long term options.

    PEX REPIPE SPECIALIST

    Uponor Pex Repipe – The World’s First, Best, And Most Widely Used System For Single Family Homes And Residential Units.

    What is PEX?

    PEX is an acronym for crosslinked polyethylene. It is a flexible, durable, proven piping product that has been used in plumbing systems for more than 20 years. PEX tubing won’t pit, scale or corrode and, because of its flexibility, it also offers potential freeze-damage protection.

    Uponor Pex plumbing systems feature PEX-a tubing, which is considered the superior PEX tubing manufacturing method in the industry. PEX-a is the most flexible of all PEX types, and because of its shape and thermal memory, it can use ProPEX expansion fittings which are the only fitting system that actually gets stronger over time – making it highly leak resistant.

    1) Repiping in a home begins at the transition point.

    2) The transition point is the point where the potable water system enters the building from the exterior of the building.

    3) Repiping a potable water system means you totally abandon the existing potable system and replace it with a new system.

    4) The first step in repiping your home is masking or “covering” the floors, and this must be completed before the walls are masked off. This overlap “ enveloped ” system allows the plastic sheeting to be rolled up in one continuous motion.

    5) Cutting the sheetrock: You will be shocked at how little sheetrock has to be removed for the layout and installation of a new potable water system. A real Pex Plumber is an expert at HVAC, framing, plumbing, and electrical layout, and will lay out the home pex repipe in the most effective route. The better the repiper. the smaller and fewer the drywall holes!

    6) A “GREEN REPIPE” potable water system refers to a Pex repipe potable system only – such as UPONOR or ZURN with corrosion resistant fittings. CPVC and copper systems are not green systems.

    7) The drywall pieces that are removed must be used in the patching process as each texture is a little different in thickness. This gives you a uniform surface thickness as you start the repair process. Each piece goes back in the hole it came from.

    8) Repipe with an approved material. There are currently three main materials used in pex repiping jobs across the US: copper pipe and fittings, CPVC pipe and fittings, and PEX repipe and fittings. (DO NOT USE CPVC, IT IS THE NEXT POLYBUTYLENE)

    9) Repipe inspections must be performed by the local building inspectors after the repipe is completed, with the system under full water pressure.

    10) The signed inspection card must be given to the homeowner after the PEX repipe inspection is completed.

    11) Drywall repair begins after all the necessary backing has been installed. Backing supports the drywall pieces that were removed to access the potable water pipes and accommodate the repiping of a new Pex repipe or copper potable water system.

    12) The fiberglass mesh tape must be used 100% of the time.

    13) The patches must be pre-filled with quick set patching compound. The compound comes in 18lb bags, and because it is a powder, it must be mixed with water. This locks the perimeter of each patch and will make the area of the patch stronger than it was before the work process began. The reason this is important is that when you close the doors in the house, the walls flex just a little bit, and if you do not perform this method of repair, the patch will fracture over time from the flex/vibration caused by shutting the doors.

    14) Do not coat the drywall patches with regular all-purpose joint compound on the repipe patches.This is a common practice and the patches will crack later 100% of the time, even if it’s years later.

    15) Coat all the repipe drywall patches with quick set patching compound only. USG will do and you can find it at any home and hardware store, or you will have fractures in the walls at the patch locations.

    16) Float all the walls with quick set patching compound and use a 12″ drywall knife and stagger each coat until the walls become smooth and flat. The next step is wet sanding the patches and this must be done if you want the patches to blend in perfectly after the texture is applied. The reason you’ve seen bad patches in the past is that repairmen do not know how to “kill the edges.” This is an old drywall term that means you must do the detail wet sanding work and there is no short cut.

    17) Texture to match the existing texture, and this is not as easy as you might think. This is a real art form for the few that know what they are doing. Also, if the texture is spray texture, you must sponge off the overspray for the texture to match. Nothing gives away the location of a patch more than overspray that is painted over and not “killing the edges.”

    18) Paint to match the existing paint. All repipe companies color match the same way. They run down to their local hardware store and have the computer color matching done by the man behind the counter. This is beginner color matching. The proper way to color match is hand color matching. First, match the paint sheen. Second, computer match for the base color. Third, tint for color adjustment. Fourth, match the color and sheen after the paint sample has dried. Repeat if necessary. Did you know that the paint color on the wall after it dries will be different than the paint color while it is wet and in the can?

    19) If you follow the basic repiping rules, after a very short time you will not be able to point out all the drywall patches from the repair. You will simply forget where the holes were due to the patches receiving the proper floating, texture and painting techniques. Your friends, neighbors, relatives, and even plumbing contractors will not be able to find the patches.

    20) This is a basic guideline for a home repipe. and if done, properly you will have a repipe that was done as well as a repipe can be done.

    At Integrity Repipe. we provide total abandonment of your existing potable system, and there are never hidden extras, and we don’t hire subcontractors. You’ll receive nothing but the finest, most complete and professional job in the industry. The scope will be for a lead-free and yellow brass -free potable “GREEN SYSTEM” with a full lifetime warranty that covers material and labor.

    Types of Service – Honeywell Intrusion and Communications #burglar #alarm, #burglary, #home


    #

    Types of Service

    The AlarmNet network’s reliability is assured with a state of the art network control center that houses dedicated communication services and hardware platforms. Hardware servers and communication paths are completely redundant, with hot back-up databases housed in two separate locations. If one system were to have a catastrophic event, the other system can take over without any service interruption. Both locations are equipped with battery and generator backup along with technical support 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week for uninterrupted service. This level of sophistication allows us to handle alarm communication for UL listed and critical high-line security installations.

    Network Architecture

    In the AlarmNet architecture, although each of the networks are independent of one another, subscriber radios and Internet transmitters may send messages from one network and be received at nearly any central station location in North America over another technology. The AlarmNet Network Control Center (NCC) accomplishes this integration. This design offers the following important benefits:

    1. Integration of Multiple Networks

    One of the fundamental principles behind AlarmNet is the integration of different network types. In the AlarmNet architecture, member central stations are equipped with AlarmNet wireless or Internet receiving equipment or both. This equipment communicates directly with the AlarmNet network. Depending on its needs at installation at the protected premise, an installer may choose to use any of the available types of subscriber radios or Internet transmitters, whichever works best for that installation. Although each of the different products may report through a different network, the central station does not need to incur the costs of time, money, or labor to operate, maintain, and integrate all of these networks.

    When a central station signs up with AlarmNet, it establishes a network connection scheme between the central station and AlarmNet and as a result gains access to any of its customers at the protected premise through that scheme and the interaction of AlarmNet.

    2. Learn One, Know Them All

    All of the different subscriber devices used for the different network services have a similar look and feel. The same programming tool is used for most of the devices. All signals are delivered to the central station in a uniform, familiar reporting format. This assures that the central station can receive signals from any type of AlarmNet subscriber; past, present, or future. Once equipped to receive alarm messages from the AlarmNet network, the central station can provide network services to any subscriber without additional expense.

    3. Supervision and Speed of Delivery

    AlarmNet radios and transmitters are supervised on a regular basis. The supervision is performed automatically, and is transparent to the central station. The AlarmNet network communicates with all AlarmNet devices on a regular basis, assuring that they are operational. The AlarmNet network reports to the central station only when there is a problem. The central station does not need to worry about supervision or maintenance of the network, since the network performs these functions automatically. The central station only receives the signals it needs: actual alarm or trouble messages. When the network receives an alarm, it automatically and immediately forwards the signal to the appropriate central station. The AlarmNet transmission generally will reach the central station before the traditional dialer-based signal, in cases where an AlarmNet device and the digital dialer both send signals.

    4. Secure, Redundant, Wireless Protection

    Not all competitive wireless subscriber services offered in the market are wireless at both ends. For example, due to the design of the cellular network, competing cellular services deliver signals to the central station over the regular switched telephone network. In these cases, the communications integrity of the central station (and all premises protected by that central station) is vulnerable to the same weaknesses as any landline-dependent customer (line cut, service outages, and natural disasters). Limited services such as these protect only a portion of the communications chain. Standard AlarmNet wireless delivery, however, assures an end-to-end wireless system that provides redundancy, supervision, and verification of message delivery. It only makes sense that the central station should use wireless communications to maintain the same level of security and performance in its communications infrastructure as it does at the protected premises.

    In order to maintain a redundant, invulnerable link to subscribers using wireline-terminated networks, a service provider must maintain at least two physically distinct and independent connections to every network type. AlarmNet maintains such connections at every level, saving the central station the expense and complexity of maintaining such an elaborate communications infrastructure. AlarmNet’s connection to the central station also has two layers of redundancy: every central station is equipped with a primary and backup transceiver.

    Quickbooks over VPN? Archive – Micro Focus Forums #operations, #work, #quickbooks, #long,


    #

    05-Apr-2005, 07:16 PM

    I recently set up our new accountant with the BM vpn and NW clients so that
    she might be able to access our quickbooks 2000 database via a mapped drive
    while connected to our BM3.7 server. She can connect fine, and althought QB
    (a known resource hog) is fairly slow for most common operations over the
    vpn (both client and server have SDSL connections over 500kbps), it is not
    entirely unworkable. SOME particular operations, however, take an
    IMPOSSIBLY long time (especially find operations in the records DB),
    literally many, many orders of magnitude slower than everything else.

    Is this really just due to the number of drive accesses involved in these
    operations, or is there some other buggy issue at work here?

    Does anyone know how to troubleshoot/work around this problem effectively?
    We are really trying to avoid having to shutdown/lock the QB system long
    enough for our accountant to copy the DB to a local machine, do her work,
    and then write it back out to our system. We really need a way for her to
    be able to work remotely AND concurrently with the rest of us.

    Many, many thanks in advance for any help.

    You will probably need to take some traces (Ethereal on the PC’s
    involved) to see what kind of traffic is involved. Might be as simple
    as needing to reduce MTU size on one or both ends of that connection.

    Perhaps simpler would be to use pcANYWHERE, VNC or terminal server/RDP
    to remote control an internal PC over the VPN to do the work remotely.

    My experience with Quickbooks over a lan is that the newer versions can be a
    little slow as it is. I would venture to say that there is just way too
    much data to push through that small DSL pipe.

    14-Apr-2005, 04:07 PM

    Thanks for the input Craig and JP,

    I apologize for my own sluggish response. I actually found a post on
    another site that echoed Craig’s suggestion of running quickbooks on a local
    machine and having the remote client connect to it using pcAnywhere or the
    like so that all the heavy drive accesses remain local. I’m going to give
    that a try.

    Thanks again for the help,

    When your spouse tells you that she s filed a divorce petition, you’ll probably spend the next several days waiting for a sheriff s officer to show up at your workplace to deliver the papers. That scenario is more fiction than reality. Most states offer other more pleasant options for service. In some cases, you may receive her papers the same day your spouse files them. In others, the process can take weeks or even months.

    Time Limit

    Your spouse doesn’t have to serve you with her papers the same day she files them. However, most states will dismiss her petition or complaint if she doesn’t get around to doing so within a reasonable period of time. The definition of “reasonable” varies among states. In California, it is two years. In other states, it is a matter of months. How long service takes depends on when your spouse begins the process.

    Acceptance of Service

    The fastest method of service is when you make arrangements with your spouse to voluntarily accept the papers. If you’ve retained an attorney, he will usually accept them on your behalf. If your spouse has retained an attorney, you can generally pick up the papers at his office and sign for them there. Your spouse can also give the papers to you personally in most states, as long as you sign an acceptance of service or a waiver of official service. By any of these means, service should only take a day or two.

    Mail

    Some states allow for service by mail, either regular, certified or both. In this case, how quickly you receive the papers depends on the United States Postal Service. Some states will not allow your spouse to mail you the papers herself; she must arrange to have an uninterested third party do it. This may take a little additional time, but it can all usually be accomplished in less than a week.

    Sheriff or Process Server

    If your spouse does choose to use the local sheriff to deliver the papers to you, or if your state only accepts service by this method, the time frame extends somewhat. Your spouse’s divorce petition will have to wait for an available deputy or officer, then that officer must track you down during business hours to serve you. This can take up to a week. The process is usually quicker if your spouse pays for a private process server to give you the paperwork. Private servers are not limited to working only during business hours and can call ahead to arrange to meet with you somewhere. Some states also allow a disinterested third party over the age of majority to hand-deliver the papers. If your spouse chooses any of these methods, you’ll probably receive the papers within about a week.

    Publication

    If your spouse doesn’t know where you’re currently living or working, this can delay the process of service significantly. If you’re trying to stay off the radar and avoid service, she can usually serve you by publication in a newspaper in most states. However, this requires special permission from the court. The entire process can take months, because most states will require her to diligently try to find you first.

We provide Long Term Care Insurance quotes, rates, reviews, ratings, company comparisons and other cost information that will help you save money with your Long Term Care Insurance purchasing decision.

    Long Term Care Insurance

    Long Term Care Insurance is more than just ordinary retirement planning. It removes the worry of having to earmark your nest egg for the uncertainty of needing care, so you can enjoy doing the things that make you happy.

    • Harvard Magazine says that women are living an average of 81.4 years and men are living an average of 76.8 years. Advancements in medicine increase the chance that a person will need long term health care. More LTC statistics.
    • New England Journal of Medicine reports that about 51% of people 65 years and older will eventually need these services.
    • The Wall Street Journal states that a staggering 55% of seniors 85 and older have Alzheimer’s or some other form of dementia, the number one reason for needing assistance. WSJ also reports that even children are buying policies for their parents to protect their inheritance.

    Longevity Increases Need.

    Modern health technology is helping the average United States citizen live a longer life. This extended longevity is increasing the likelihood a person will need Long Term Care services at some point during their life. In addition to Alzheimer s and dementia, there are other degenerative diseases such as obesity, diabetes, stroke, heart problems, cancer, Parkinson s disease as well as accidents and injuries resulting in things like bone fractures which may also create the need for services. Long Term Care Insurance can help pay for the cost of caring for those conditions so you will have peace of mind knowing you are protected if it were to happen to you.

    What Does Long Term Care Insurance Pay For?

    Your Long Term Care Insurance benefits can be used to pay for Home Health Care, Assisted Living Facilities, Adult Day Care and Nursing Homes. In fact, 72% of all LTC claims are paid for Home Health Care. This service is where an aide comes into your home to help with with your Activities of Daily Living and also provide help with cooking and cleaning. Long Term Care Insurance will help ensure you will be able to stay in your own home to receive care.

    The problem: The high cost of needing Long Term Care could drain your life savings.

    When planning, consider the high average annual cost of receiving Long Term Care:

    • Nursing Home $86,525
    • Assisted Living Facility $46,880
    • Home Care $42,215

    The solution: Plan ahead with Long Term Care Insurance.

    The high cost of receiving Long Term Care can erode your nest egg that you have worked so hard to save. The average stay in a nursing home is now 3.3 years. That length of time adds up to an average cost of $285,532 per person or $571,065 for a married couple. That high expense is figured at today s costs and inflation will likely triple that cost in the next 30 years. The plan will have inflation protection so your benefits do not lose purchasing power over time.

    What if you could protect yourself from the greatest financial risk you will face in your retirement? Having Long Term Care Insurance coverage can save your nest egg and your retirement. Imagine how relaxed you ll feel knowing that you planned ahead and now you and your family are protected.

    LTC Tree s assistance was invaluable in helping us decide which Long Term Care Insurance policy was best for us, while saving us money and providing peace of mind. -Kelly W. More Testimonials

    I have moved 10 times. I have never had a more professional move in the 9 prior to this one.

    Moving in general terms is not a good experience. Terri and Joe, Owners, were so professional and responsive when I called. Chris, Son of Joe & Terri, along with the Team of Ken and his Nephew John performed the move. They covered every piece offumiture then stretch wrapped it to avoid any damages and scratches.

    I am in the Distribution Business and never have I seen one of the Moving Companies perform the move as well as they have. Not only had they pointed out scratches that they thought they may have caused but they were ready to fix the scratches and I had to point out that I caused those myself. They thanked me for my honesty. I thanked them for their honesty and the focus on the job they were doing. The speed in which they performed was unbelievable. It’s obvious to me that these guys take pride in what they do.

    The cost of the move was very reasonable for the service you get. Integrity and Professionalism that was exemplified by the moving Team is a credit to both Joe and Terri.

    I would recommend Movin Murdy to anyone needing to have that Warm and Fuzzy Feeling about moving. My wife was very complimentary. We feel we have just made New Friends

    I was nervous on the moving day, concerned of busting my budget on a houseful of stuff accumulated over the years, and deep down what if some one dillie-dallie and so I watch money burn. These people proved right away how needless (and how small) I was in my worries. They (three movers including driver) were fast, efftcient, showing care and concern for our belongings, and above all showed us they were professionals. The whole move was done under budget and ahead of time. They not only moved all things, they also re-assembled the beds/tables in the new house, all the while being professional, fast, organized, respectful, friendly, and cheerful. Never a second I doubted their honesty or integrity or hardworking. These were nice and professional people. Exactly what one needs on a very stressfu I day, the moving day. If my little review help them growing their business and help someone pick a good mover, the better the world will be.

    THE BEST MOVERS EVER! – I’ve had some bad experiences with other moving companies in the past. But I have finally found a company that I trust.

    –Posted by Tim.

    I just wanted people to know that Movin’ Murdy was easily the best movers I’ve ever worked with. They were by far the most conscientious workers I’ve ever witnessed. Previously, I’ve had movers show up hungover and other times there’s been some no-shows. I was told there would probably be 3 movers coming to load my stuff and I was pleasantly surprised to see 5 on the actual day of the move. They got everything loaded within 2.5 hrs which was far faster than I could have anticipated.

    They are very careful with how they treat your belongings and I was pleased to see that nothing was damaged. I truly believe their key to success is the attitudes of Joe and Terry (owners) which trickle down to everyone else. They do their best to make sure you’re satisfied with every aspect of the move. A couple of days before the actual pickup day, I asked if they could pick up a futon and couch from my parents’ house and they did so without any additional charge! The final price was actually less than the estimate! Finally, I forgot to have the entire first half of the payment available on the pickup date (it was MLK day and the banks were closed) and Joe said to just have it available for the unloading day.

    My move from Homestead to central PA went off without any problems and I already know that I will use them again in the future when I move from my current location.

    Awesome Movin’ Murdy
    Everyone that moved me was excellent — Jay, John and Dan.
    They showed up on time, put down a carpet protector, and worked straight through the move from my second floor condo to my new house 10 miles away. Also, I spoke with Terri (sp) on the phone several times to set up the move and do the paperwork. The guys that moved me knew what they were doing, they didn’t take smoke breaks or anything like that. It was quick, painless, and well under budget. I will definitely recommend them to anyone I know that is moving. I just got Internet back and will be on Twitter to say how great they are. Thanks so much!

    What our guests experienced

    Everything was perfect. Walking up and down the stairs everyday was a good workout. Overall a positive experience!

    This was a terrific one bedroom paris apartment and a terrific neighborhood in Ile Saint Louis. The greeting, checkout and landlord were terrific. Everything was perfect. We had a plumbing problem and they took care of immediately and with now trouble to us. I give them all the highest ratings and recommendation.

    Apartment was excellent.

    I really enjoyed staying at this Paris short term appartment rental during my stay in Paris. The Landlord was very friendly and everytime I called him (questions, or when something was not working) he immediately helped me out.
