Recovering a database with a missing transaction log

Question: We had a SAN problem over the weekend and the upshot is that one of our main databases was shut down with open transactions, but we ve lost the log file. The last working backup is two weeks old.

Is there any way to recover the database without having to resort to the old backup?

Answer: Yes, but not without consequences.

Usually when a database has open transactions and the server crashes, crash recovery will run on the affected database and roll back the open transactions. This prevents the partial effects of transactions being present in the database. If the transaction log is not available when SQL Server starts, the database will be in the SUSPECT state.

In this case, the only way to bring the database online (note that I m not saying way to make the database usable ) is to use the emergency mode repair functionality that was added in SQL Server 2005. This basically builds a new transaction log and then runs a DBCC CHECKDB using REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS. Read more .

The problem you will have if you decide to go this route is that emergency mode repair cannot roll back any of the active transactions as it has no knowledge of what they were, because the transaction log was destroyed. This means that at best, the resulting database will be transactionally inconsistent i.e. the state of the data in the database is unknown.

For instance, there may have been a transaction that was updating some sales records in a table, and only half of them were updated before the crash and subsequent transaction log loss occurred. You ll find it very difficult to figure out what state the data is in, and how to make the database properly usable again by the application.

Emergency mode repair is supposed to be a real last resort when all other methods of recovering data have failed.

In your case, you ll have to figure out what is the lesser of two evils recovering the database into an inconsistent state, or restoring the two-week old backup. You may end up deciding to do both, and trying to piece together the data, but that will be very time consuming and problematic again, because you don t know what was happening in the database at the time that the crash occurred.

To prevent this situation in future, beef up your backup strategy to use much more frequent backups, and add a high-availability technology that maintains a real-time copy of your database such as database mirroring or SQL Server 2012 Availability Groups.

Master of Education in Educational Leadership

Education Leaders Drive School Success

Quality educational leadership is vital to the overall success of an individual school or school system. Strong academic leaders are key to high-performing schools; they help orchestrate school reform, and serve as motivators to fellow teachers and students.

To help you prepare for your new role as an education leader, Penn State World Campus has partnered with the College of Education to offer you a completely online Master of Education in Educational Leadership, with your choice of three emphasis areas:

Teacher Leader: Our program allows you to continue teaching in the classroom while you pursue additional roles, such as a lead teacher, mentor teacher, or department head. In your course work you will explore topics that include learning theory, teacher leadership, teacher inquiry, and curriculum design.

School Leader: Approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the School Leader emphasis meets Pennsylvania State educational requirements for certification as a school principal. This option offers an internship allowing you the opportunity to integrate the specialized knowledge learned through coursework into the field under the supervision of an approved on-site mentor principal. The internship must span a full calendar year. At this time, only Pennsylvania-certified educators are eligible to apply for the Graduate Certificate for Principalship and/or the School Leader emphasis of Masters in Educational Leadership. Our Masters in Educational Leadership with the Teacher Leader emphasis is open to educators from other states and countries. Please note that switching from one emphasis area to another is not permissible once the student has been accepted into a specific program emphasis.

School Leader (without Principal Certification): Same program (courses) as above without principal certification. The internship (which is the capstone assignment for the degree) is modified accordingly. This emphasis area is best aligned to students in international and private schools, domestic and abroad.

State Nicknames South Dakota, green mountain state.#Green #mountain #state

State Nicknames South Dakota – Wyoming and their Explanation

Mount Rushmore State celebrates the epic sculpture of the faces of four exalted American presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. South Dakota’s Black Hills provide the back-drop for Mount Rushmore, the world’s greatest mountain carving. These 60-foot high faces, 500-feet up, look out over a setting of pine, spruce, birch, and aspen in the clear western air.

Tennessee has had several nicknames, but the most popular is The Volunteer State. The nickname originated during the War of 1812, in which the volunteer soldiers from Tennessee, serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson, displayed marked valor in the Battle of New Orleans.

Other nicknames include the Big Bend State, which refers to the Indian name of the Tennessee River; The River with the Big Bend ; and Hog and Hominy State, now obsolete but formerly applied because the corn and pork products of Tennessee were in such great proportions between 1830 and 1840 ; and The Mother of Southwestern Statesmen, because Tennessee furnished the United States three presidents and a number of other leaders who served with distinction in high government office.

Tennesseans sometimes are referred to as Volunteers, Big Benders and Butternuts. The first two are derived from the nickname of the state, while the tag of Butternuts was first applied to Tennessee soldiers during the War Between the States because of the tan color of their uniforms. Later, it sometimes was applied to people across the entire state.

A single star was part of the Long Expedition (1819), Austin Colony (1821) and several flags of the early Republic of Texas. Some say that the star represented the wish of many Texans to achieve statehood in the United States. Others say it originally represented Texas as the lone state of Mexico which was attempting to uphold its rights under the Mexican Constitution of 1824. At least one “lone star” flag was flown during the Battle of Concepcion and the Siege of Bexar (1835). Joanna Troutman’s flag with a single blue star was raised over Velasco on January 8, 1836. Another flag with a single star was raised at the Alamo (1836) according to a journal entry by David Crockett. One carried by General Sam Houston’s Texian army (which defeated Mexican General Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto ) may have been captured and taken to Mexico. Another “lone star” flag, similar to the current one but with the red stripe above the white, was also captured the following year (1837) and returned to Mexico. The “David G. Burnet” flag, of “an azure ground” (blue background) “with a large golden star central” was adopted by the Congress of the Republic of Texas in December of 1836. It continued in use as a battle flag after being superseded in January of 1839. The 1839 design has been used to symbolize the Republic and the Lone Star State ever since.

Beehive State The beehive became the official state emblem on March 4, 1959. Utahans relate the beehive symbol to industry and the pioneer virtues of thrift and perseverance. The beehive was chosen as the emblem for the provisional State of Deseret in 1848 and was maintained on the seal of the State of Utah when Utah became a state in 1896.

Green Mountain State Verd Mont was a name given to the Green Mountains in October, 176l, by the Rev. Dr. Peters, the first clergyman who paid a visit to the 30,000 settlers in that country, in the presence of Col. Taplin, Col. Willes, Col. Peters, Judge Peters and many others, who were proprietors of a large number of townships in that colony. The ceremony was performed on the top of a rock standing on a high mountain, then named Mount Pisgah because it provided to the company a clear sight of lake Champlain at the west, and of Connecticut river at the east, and overlooked all the trees and hills in the vast wilderness at the north and south.

Old Dominion State Charles II of England quartered the arms of Virginia on his shield in 1663, thus adding Virginia to his dominions of France, Ireland and Scotland. Called the Mother State because it was the first state to be colonized.

source: State Names, Seals, Flags, and Symbols by Benjamin F. Shearer, Barbara S. Shearer

On November 11, 1889, Washington became the 42nd state to enter the Union. It is the only state named for a president. Washington was nicknamed The Evergreen State by C.T. Conover, pioneer Seattle realtor and historian, for its abundant evergreen forests. The nickname was adopted by the Legislature in February, 1893.

The Appalachian Mountains extend through the eastern portion of the state, giving West Virginia its nickname of the Mountain State.

Badger State Although the badger has been closely associated with Wisconsin since territorial days, it was not declared the official state animal until 1957. Over the years its likeness had been incorporated in the state coat of arms, the seal, the flag and even State Capitol architecture, as well as being immortalized in the song “On, Wisconsin!” (“Grand old bager state!”)

Wyoming is known as the Equality State because of the rights women have traditionally enjoyed there. Wyoming women were the first in the nation to vote, serve on juries and hold public office.

Winston Salem State University – page 2

I am looking at the accelerated program through WSSU as well. So far I’m getting the impression that they might not be as organized or as interested in speaking with potential students as UNC/CH or Emory, for example. I had appointments to speak with people at those schools within a week of my inquiry. At WSSU they are offering me an appointment 4 weeks down the road.

I am moving back to NC this summer and am trying to decide between Durham (Duke or UNC/CH options) or Winston-Salem (anything other than WSSU. anyone knows of?)

Either way I go, I’ll have 2 semesters of the pre-reqs to complete at the community college. As a 45 yr old I would like to choose a city where I think I could potentially stay and call home, and make it work rather than considering moving again in another year. I love everything about W-S except for the reservations I currently have about WSSU. Like the school options in Durham, but not the cost of living (for UNC at least.)

How many students DO apply to the WSSU program? Is it ridiculously difficult to get into?

If you have a high previous GPA say 3.3 or higher, you should look into UNC Greensboro’s nursing program. I just graduated. It is an excellent school. In fact, it was one of the three schools selected nationally by the National League of Nursing as a center of nursing education excellence.

The school is small enough for a personal touch and large enough to have resourses. UNCG graduates are highly regarded and sought after by all the area hospitals. In short, we have an excellent local, state and national reputation. UNCG has an average NCLEX 1st test pass rate around 92% and 100% pass rate for the 8% who took it the 2nd time. Just for reference, UNCG averages graduating about 90 students. So 7 out of 90 not passing the first time isn’t to bad.

That being said, admissions is tough. It depends mostly on GPA, and then on a pre-nursing class with lab that is used as a semester long interview. If your GPA is less than 3.0 lifetime, there is no reason to even apply. If you want a realistic chance of getting in, then 3.5 is the real goal.If you do poorly in NUR210/220 or get a bad reference from clinical faculty you will not get in. Also, grades in classes like biology, chemistry, micro, and A P need to be high, straight A’s if possible.

Hope all the info helps.

Medicare Benefit for Hospice Care – New York State #hospice #stories

#medicare hospice benefit

#

Hospice

Hospice provides appropriate skilled, compassionate care to patients and their families so that they receive the support, help and guidance they need to meet the challenges of serious illness. A personalized plan of care incorporating what is important to the patient and the caregiver is developed. It is sensitive to their needs and emphasizes quality of life, and assists patients to live as fully and comfortably as possible. The philosophy of care called hospice has been practiced in New York State for more than two decades.

Hospice:

  • Embraces all patients coping with advanced illnesses
  • Focuses on comfort rather than cure
  • Emphasizes quality of life
  • Promotes personal choice and individual dignity
  • Respects the traditions and wishes of the patient and the patient s family
  • Most often provides care in the patient s home, but when necessary, can also provide care in a nursing home and inpatient setting
  • Utilizes current treatments and medications
  • Addresses physical, social, emotional, and spiritual needs
  • Provides care and support to the bereaved

Hospice Medicare Benefit

Coping with a terminal illness can be a difficult enough experience without having to worry about pain management, medication costs, and assistance with caregiving. Surprisingly, many Medicare beneficiaries are unaware that Medicare s all-inclusive Hospice Benefit is available to assist dying patients and their families with these issues at the end of life. Hospice care offers a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support tailored to the dying patient s needs and wishes. For patients who qualify, Medicare will pay for this kind of comprehensive end-of-life care delivered at home or in a hospice facility. The Medicare benefit includes many services not generally covered by Medicare and more than 90 percent of the more than 2,500 hospices in the United States are certified by Medicare.

Medicare Hospice Benefit Information

Choosing hospice care is a difficult decision. The information in this booklet and support from a doctor and trained hospice care team can help you choose the most appropriate health care options for someone who’s terminally ill. This official government booklet for Medicare hospice benefits includes information about:

  • Who is eligible for Hospice care
  • What services are included
  • How to find a Hospice program
  • Where to get more information.

Lawyer and Attorney: Is There A Difference? #lawyer #and #attorney,state #bar #associations,

#

Lawyer and Attorney: Is There A Difference?

All attorneys are lawyers. but it is improper to say that all lawyers are attorneys.

Who Are Lawyers?

A lawyer is someone who is educated in the law. A person who has been educated in the law will always be addressed as a lawyer, even if he or she does not give legal advice to other people. In fact, a lawyer in the United States is simply anyone who has gone through law school. However, the lawyer who has just completed law school may not be allowed to do certain legal jobs (e.g. representive you in court) until they successfully pass the bar exam that is conducted in the specific legal area they wish to practice.

Who Are Attorneys?

Attorneys are also recognized as lawyers. Attorneys graduate from law school and they can also choose to practice law as a profession. However a potential attorney must pass the bar exam to be eligible to practice law within a specific jurisdiction. Apart from performing the basic functions of a lawyer, attorneys can also act as legal representatives for their clients. An attorney does not just interpret the law; he or she also applies his knowledge of the law to provide the needs of his client. Attorneys act as lawyers but not all lawyers can perform the work of attorneys.

How Can I Find a Qualified Attorney?

LegalMatch can match you with a pre-screened, qualified attorney in your local area. Thousands of experienced attorneys across the Untied States use the LegalMatch service to assist those seeking legal representation (more info on How LegalMatch Works ). Click the button below to quickly locate the right attorney in your area:

For some insights on working at LegalMatch, see the LegalMatch Life Blog on Typepad.

Other differences. One of the essential steps involved in becoming an attorney is sitting for the bar exam. This is usually a rigorous test lasting two or three days and in many states the passing rate is below 50%. Conversely, a lawyer may work as a technical lawyer by serving as a consultant or policy advisor although he is not empowered to act as a legal representative.

Another term that is often misunderstood in law is “esquire”. The term is an informal title for acknowledging educated people in the UK. Apart from being a title for solicitors and barristers (terms also used in the UK for legal professionals), it is also used to honor doctors and those that have successfully completed their doctorate courses. In the US, “esquire” is mostly used as a title for attorneys. Other people in the US who use the term “esquire” as a title may find themselves in trouble especially if they do the things that are solely reserved for lawyers.

Although it is possible to differentiate these terms, the real meaning of the words can only be appreciated by a lawyer. Many people just feel safe to interchange these terms inasmuch as the lawyer in charge of their case also acts as an attorney.

Everyday, people make use of the words “attorney” and “lawyer” on televisions and newspapers. Sometimes, our family and friends may also talk about their need for a lawyer or attorney. These words are often interpreted to mean the same, but they are actually two different things. Although there is little difference between them, state bar associations consider it very important to use them appropriately, especially in cases where the practice of law is investigated. However, the two words are often interchanged in the United States.

Find Out How Much Flat Roofs Cost #state #roofing #baton #rouge

#

Flat Roofs

Get In Touch With Local Pros

Flat roofs have been a favorite of commercial architects for years, as their ease of construction and low cost are great benefits when dealing with large areas. Now, these same benefits are making flat roofing popular for residential construction as well.

But depending on the area of the country you live in, installing a flat roof may not be the most practical solution. For example, a flat roof on a New England home could be problematic due to the heavy snowfall experienced by the region. A flat roof in arid Arizona, however, makes perfect sense and in fact, flat roofs are very popular in the South and Southwest.

Flat Roof Types

The many varieties of flat roofing can make choosing one difficult. Use the following information to find the flat roof material that’s perfect for your home or business:

  • EPDM/Synthetic Rubber Roofs: Flat rubber roofs are cleaner and simpler to install than those made of hot tar or tar paper, but an EPDM membrane is fairly expensive. Membranes are sold in standard black or light colors, with the latter recommended for hot climates, as they deflect sunlight. Rubber roofing resists scuffs and scratches fairly well.
  • Built-Up-Roofs: Also known as a tar roof, this type of flat roofing consist of several layers of tar (or, in some cases, tar paper) and waterproof membrane with crushed stone (aggregate) on top. Durable and very low-cost, built up roofing is a great choice for commercial or industrial buildings. Due to the heavy weight of tar roofs, however, some buildings require additional structural support.
  • Concrete/Masonry Roofs: A flat concrete roof is an excellent choice in areas with constant high heat and little rainfall. They are easy to install, cheap, and provide homes with extra insulation by absorbing a significant portion of solar heat.
  • Modified Bitumen Roofs: This is a heat-applied peel-and-stick product that’s very easy to install, but not as durable as other flat roofing types. Most installations feature a layer of aggregate applied directly atop the bitumen.
  • Flat Metal Roofs: Metal roofing is highly durable, resists puncturing very well, and is lightweight – which saves on engineering and material costs. Choose from many different metals and roofing styles.

Flat Roof Costs

  • EPDM/rubber roofs cost $6 to $10 per square foot installed
  • Modified bitumen roofs cost $3 to $6 per square foot installed
  • Built-up roofing costs $3.50 to $7.00 per square foot installed
  • Masonry roofs typically cost $2 to $4 per square foot installed, but can be slightly more expensive depending on the price of concrete at the time of installation.
  • Flat metal roofs cost $5 to $15 per square foot installed. The actual price paid depends largely on the type of metal you choose.
  • Keep in mind that the cost of a flat roof is generally cheaper per square foot for larger areas than smaller areas. For instance, a flat roof on a supermarket will cost less, proportionally, than one installed on a two-story home.

Governor Herbert signs controversial bill making Utah – s DUI level the

Governor Herbert signs controversial bill making Utah s DUI level the lowest in the nation

SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Governor Gary Herbert has signed a bill lowering Utah’s DUI level from .08 to .05, making it the lowest in the nation.

The governor signed the bill late Thursday, hours after announcing to reporters his intention to make it law.

“My responsibility is to evaluate and decide whether in fact going to .05 is in fact good policy. That’s my charge, is it good policy? And I’m here to announce that after thorough analysis that I believe it is good policy and that this new policy will in fact save lives,” he said at his monthly news conference on KUED.

However, Gov. Herbert said he would call a special session to address “unintended consequences” of the law, which could also include delaying it’s implementation beyond 2019. Some lawmakers (including House Speaker Greg Hughes) have said they would prefer to wait until other states move to .05 so Utah is not alone.

The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Norm Thurston, R-Provo, told FOX 13 he was thrilled by the governor’s decision.

“We’re first in a lot of things and one thing we can be first in is prioritizing highway safety,” he said.

The decision to make the change to Utah’s drunk driving law came after a lot of lobbying against the bill. In numbers provided to FOX 13 under a request to the governor’s office, 3,818 phone calls, emails and letters had been received as of Thursday morning asking for HB155 to be vetoed (including about 1,000 form emails), while 444 called or wrote in favor of the bill.

Gov. Herbert said he did not believe the policy would hurt tourism as hospitality leaders have claimed, noting that much of the world has adopted a .05 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level.

“If we look at the world, we’re not weird,” he said, adding that Utah could sell the DUI bill as making our state safer than others.

Restaurant and hospitality groups — including the Utah Restaurant Association and the Salt Lake Area Restaurant Association — met with the governor to urge him to veto the bill. They insisted they did not condone drinking and driving, but feared it would harm their business by scaring people into staying home, fearful that one drink could land them in jail for DUI.

“Any downturn in our sales from people who decide to go to a different state, don’t want to come to Utah or don’t want to go out to eat negatively impacts our sales which affects taxes in Utah, which affects the ski industry, the tourism industry, the hospitality industry and the restaurant industry,” said Doug Hofeling, the Chief Operating Officer of Wasatch Beers, which owns Squatter’s, a popular local brewery.

Ski Utah CEO Nathan Rafferty told FOX 13 on Thursday that he did not believe HB155 would help lure tourists.

“People have a lot of options when they go on vacation somewhere. It doesn’t give us a competitive advantage, that’s for sure,” he said. “We appreciate the governor’s thoughtfulness on how he approached this difficult issue. We are going to work with the governor’s office and Utah Office of Tourism to make Utah not only a safe place to visit as a tourist but a desirable location.”

The American Beverage Institute took out full-page ads in USA Today and Salt Lake City’s daily newspapers opposing the bill and indicating Utah would lose tourism to Colorado.

Supporters of the bill pushed it as a matter of public safety, by insisting no one should ever drink and drive.

“Lowering the blood alcohol content limit reduces the number of deaths and injuries from alcohol-related crashes, and it will not result in negative consequences for tourism,” said Boyd Matheson, the president of the conservative think tank Sutherland Institute, which backed the bill.

“Opponents of HB 155 are attempting to make this law about Utah’s public image – about limiting the choices of citizens and visitors to the state. HB 155 will have no impact on what or how much individuals drink – it is focused on protecting lives by ensuring those who choose to drink also choose not to drive impaired. We applaud Gov. Herbert’s decision to sign this bill into law.”

If a special session is called, FOX 13 is told lawmakers could water down HB155 to delay when it becomes effective and its overall impact if someone is ever arrested with a .05 BAC. There could be a reduction in penalty to avoid someone losing their job or having a significant impact to car insurance. Other states have had a tiered system for DUI and the level of BAC someone is convicted of having.

Rep. Thurston said he was open to making some changes.

“Again, everything’s on the table,” he said. “Nothing’s ever off the table with the legislature.”

For comparing the best interest rates on fixed deposits over different duration of investment, we have it divided into following 5 slabs:

  • FD for 2 to 5 Years
  • FD for 5 to 10 years
  • FD for More than 10 years

We show the highest interest rates on fixed deposits for the above duration buckets. We have also compared the best interest rates on offer by that being offered by State Bank of India (SBI), ICICI Bank and Post Offices.

Interest Rate (Senior Citizens) for FD Less than 1 Year:

The highest interest rate is offered by The Ratnakar Bank (241 days to 364 days) at 7.60% .

Shankar Iyer says:

I suppose there has to be an extensive study before stats are pur out esp. with reference to Ratnakar Bank. If you could check Varacha Bank, Surat Peoples Bank, Sutex Bank, Sarvoday Coop Bank ( all coop banks in Surrat) whose financials are available and NPAs are available for view. These give better returns than Ratnakar. Also, see Gujarat Rajya Karmachari Coop Bank. Investments upto Rs. 1 lac is insured. Also, the investor needs to be educated on the maneouveing of applicant names while opening accounts with coop banks, so that only the benefit of sr citizen is obtained, but the deposits are also insured.

I agree with your views and you can use various combinations of names of account holders to get benefit of deposit insurance. Historically co-operative banks have been riskier and so they offer higher interest rate. Also claiming insurance in case of default is not easy and it may take time. So it s individuals call weather to take risk for slightly higher interest rates.

We provide legal expertise to individuals who require a confidential environment, intuitive strategies, time tested goals, and dedicated personalized representation with the best results for your case.

    Mr. Wells is a Board Certified Dallas Criminal Lawyer. He has a passion for victory, a respect of the Judges and Courts, a beneficial relationship with the Justice Department, DEA, FBI, ATF, the local District Attorney’s Offices, and a highly effective and experienced network of attorneys, investigators, expert witnesses and resources.

He knows this is part of the winning formula, which has provided success for his past clients and is available for our future clients. We are proud of our excellent history of results and the clients we have represented. As a Dallas Criminal Lawyer, Mr. Wells has prosecuted and defended literally thousands of criminal cases from misdemeanors to murder. Experience has developed the one attribute that can most effectively impact your future: our professional judgment, knowing what to do and when to do it.

    Criminal conduct, investigation, or charges may result in significant ramifications to your current financial position and future career, reputation and liberty. It is critical that you do not talk or communicate about your case to anyone or prepare any evidence until you have the case reviewed by a Criminal Lawyer with the right mix of experience, judgment, analytical skill and knowledge. This will provide you the ability to determine your situation, what the evidence will probably prove, and identify any risks or options you have.

    After reviewing your case, there is no substitute for speed, and timing and decisions in the criminal justice system to achieve the best result possible. The government will be using every possible investigative tool to assemble the case. Prosecuting a criminal case consists of gathering crime facts in the light most prejudicial to the Defendant: i.e. putting together a case. Defending a case consists of casting doubt upon � or actually disproving � the Defendant�s responsibility for either the commission of the crime or its aggravating features: i.e. taking apart a case. Knowing exactly how to utilize and examine this process may keep you out of court system altogether, failing can cripple you for life. This requires confidence, intelligence and most importantly, experience in prosecuting and defending cases similar to yours. Without this unique ability and experience of the entire process and system you can be left without the best result in your case.

    In some cases, many offenses can be proven by the State (or, in federal cases, by the Government). Knowing this, to obtain the best result for your case requires a unique strategy. We have developed extensive expertise in punishment mitigation or �damage control.� If investigation establishes that your guilt can clearly be established upon a trial, we have the resources and credibility to create a plea to cut exposure to a minimum, or identify an acceptable alternative to confinement, or at a minimum, show why a lesser punishment is appropriate.

    If you, a business associate, client or a member of your family is in need of assistance, please contact us at the Dallas, Texas office. Allow us to review the case, at no risk or cost. Please refer to the FAQ to receive additional information.

    YOUR RETIREMENT

    RETIREMENT. IT’S NOT SO FAR AWAY

    Regardless of your age, you should start thinking about retirement now. You need money to enjoy your retirement years, and that takes careful planning.

    Maintaining your pre-retirement living standard usually requires an income from various sources. The State of Connecticut understands this and provides you with retirement benefits through the Connecticut State Employees Retirement System.

    The State Employees Retirement System is based on a Connecticut state law enacted in 1939. Since that time, the law has been changed by legislation and collective bargaining. There are currently three plans – Tier I, Tier II and Tier IIA. In this booklet, we describe the System’s Tier II retirement plan, which is non-contributory for all members except hazardous duty members.

    The Tier II Plan is administered by the State Employees Retirement Commission whose members are representatives selected by state employees or their unions, management members appointed by the Governor, and actuaries. The Chair of the Commission is nominated by Commission members and must be authorized to serve as a neutral arbitrator in labor relations cases.

    We’ve described the Tier II Plan in summary form in this booklet. Although retirement plans are by necessity complicated, we have taken care to eliminate legal terms whenever possible and to use everyday language. Also, you’ll find a number of examples throughout this booklet to help you understand how the Plan works.

    Please read this Tier II description carefully. If you have any questions about the Plan that the booklet does not answer, contact:

    About Hospice Care

    Note. Many families or their loved ones’ doctors often wait too long to order hospice. Hospice is a very valuable service and should be ordered at an earlier stage of illness. Many doctors or family don’t often consider hospice for Alzheimer’s, degenerative old age or other debilitating illnesses where a person is going downhill fast. They should.

    It is unfortunate that many people who died in a hospital emergency room or who received heroic treatments to prolong life in a hospital may have had the alternative of dying at home in familiar surroundings, with family or other loved ones at their side.

    When someone is in crisis or appears to be going downhill fast but there really is no hope for recovery, family often call 911 and start a process which can result in great stress and great emotional discomfort. The loved one who is dying ends up in a hospital and may die there or be transferred to a nursing home where death eventually occurs.

    When there is no longer hope for prolonging life, especially when this decision is made months in advance, hospice is usually a better alternative to other medical intervention.

    Hospice is a form of palliative care for patients who are terminally ill. A commonly used definition for terminally ill patients is, patients who have a progressive, incurable illness that will end in death despite good treatment, and who are sick enough that you would not be surprised if they died within six months.

    Hospice care is a valuable service and is generally underused except for terminal cancer patients. Hospice allows for compassion and dignity in the process of dying. Most families wait too long to have their doctor prescribe hospice from Medicare. It should be considered at an earlier stage.

    Hospice involves a team approach using the following providers.

    • Family caregivers;
    • The patient’ s personal physician;
    • Hospice physician (or medical director);
    • Nurses;
    • Home health aides;
    • Social workers;
    • Clergy or other counselors;
    • Trained volunteers; and
    • Speech, physical, and occupational therapists, if needed.

    The purpose of hospice is the following:

    • Manages the patient’s pain and symptoms;
    • Assists the patient with the emotional and psychosocial and spiritual aspects of dying;
    • Provides needed medications, medical supplies, and equipment;
    • Coaches the family on how to care for the patient;
    • Delivers special services like speech and physical therapy when needed;
    • Makes short-term inpatient care available when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home, or the caregiver needs respite time; and
    • Provides bereavement care and counseling to surviving family and friends.

    A person can receive hospice from Medicare if he or she is

    • eligible for Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance), and
    • the doctor and the hospice medical director certify that the person is terminally ill and probably has less than six months to live, and
    • the person or a family member signs a statement choosing hospice care instead of routine Medicare covered benefits for the terminal illness, and
    • care is received from a Medicare-approved hospice program.

    A person may continue to receive regular Medicare benefits from his or her customary doctors for conditions not related to the hospice condition.

    Criminal Justice Degree
    Bachelor Degree Criminal Justice

    Student Resources

    Why Major in Criminal Justice?

    The criminal justice degree program provides a combined training and criminal justice education package to prepare men and women for a professional career in the criminal justice system.

    Acceptance into the criminal justice bachelor degree program (junior/senior level) is on a competitive basis, as space permits.

    The criminal justice degree program provides two primary entry points: (1) to accommodate criminal justice students who wish to complete all four years at Ferris; and (2) college criminal justice students who transfer into the Ferris State criminal justice degree program with an associate degree criminal justice or its equivalent.

    Criminal Justice College Graduates Get Great Jobs

    The criminal justice degree program at Ferris State has three options: law enforcement specialist; criminal justice corrections; or criminal justice generalist. Depending upon the criminal justice major or cj program option chosen, Criminal Justice degree students study criminal justice subjects such as administration of police units, police laboratory techniques, collection of evidence, the role of police in forming community opinion, cause and prevention of juvenile delinquency, criminal justice theory and practice of handling convicted law violators, probation and parole, criminal justice processes and problems, crime control policy, and the role of law enforcement in American society.

    During the summer internship between the junior and senior years, the Criminal Justice degree students are assigned to a cooperating criminal justice agency for practical experience in a criminal justice internship program.

    Bachelor’s Degree Criminal Justice Admission Requirements

    College students who major in criminal justice by enrolling in the criminal justice degree program prior to the junior level enroll in the Pre-Criminal Justice curriculum. Completion of the Pre-Criminal Justice degree program does not guarantee acceptance into the criminal justice bachelor degree program. The bachelors degree in Criminal Justice is awarded for successful completion of 128-134 semester credit hours of coursework. These criminal justice degree credit hours are a combination of the 63-64 credit hours as required in the first two years as a criminal justice major (or an equivalent from another college) and the 64-67 semester credit hours required in the junior and senior years at Ferris State. Graduation from the college criminal justice degree program requires a minimum 2.5 GPA for the law enforcement specialist option. Graduation from the criminal justice degree in the criminal justice corrections and generalist options requires a minimum 2.0 GPA.

    College Degree Criminal Justice Graduation Requirements

    Graduates from the Criminal Justice degree program must complete all of Ferris State general education requirements as outlined in the General Education section of the criminal justice course catalog, and have an ACT math sub score of 24, or complete MATH 115 or pass the Math proficiency exam.

    Florida Speeding Ticket

    Speeding Ticket Options and Fines

    What to do if you Get a Traffic Ticket in Florida

    Over 4 million traffic citations were issued in 2003 in Florida – that’s 4 million tickets. The bulk of these traffic tickets are for speeding but improper lane change, careless driving, running red lights, and other moving violations were very common as well.

    Options Available to Satisfy a Traffic Citation

    You are required to satisfy your traffic citation within thirty (30) calendar days. Your options may depend on your driving record but if your drivers license is in good standing typical options are as follows:

    Traffic School Option

    The benefits of electing the traffic school option in Florida are that your auto insurance cannot go up and your policy cannot be cancelled. If you complete a state approved traffic school course and submit your certificate of completion to the clerk of court in the county where you received the ticket by their specified deadline adjudication is withheld, which means you are not deemed guilty and you received no points.

    Florida Approved Traffic Schools

    123Driving.com offers Florida DMV approved traffic school online

    Another option is to look in your local yellow pages under traffic school or driving instruction

    State of Florida Policy for Electing Traffic School

    Florida Statute 626.9541(1)(o) 12 States: “No insurer shall impose or request an additional premium, cancel a policy, or issue a non renewal notice on any insurance policy or contract because of any traffic infraction when adjudication of guilt is withheld and no points have been accessed pursuant to s.318.14(9) and (10). However, this subparagraph does not apply to traffic infractions involving accidents in which the insurer has incurred a loss due to the fault of the insured.”

    Pay the Civil Penalty

    If you pay the full fine points will be applied against your drivers license when applicable and your auto insurance rates may go up or your policy may be cancelled.

    Traffic Fines

    Fines vary by County as an Example we have provided the fines for Orange County (The Orlando Area)

    The fines for a Florida speeding ticket listed above are only used to illustrate the typical fees. You should verify your fine with clerk of court in the county where you received your traffic ticket.

    Request a Court Appearance

    If you elect the option to request a court appearance for the violation(s) and it is determined that an infraction has been committed, the Court may adjudicate you guilty, assess points, impose a civil penalty not to exceed $500 ($1000 for violations involving a death or speeding in school/construction zones) or require you to attend traffic school. or all of the above. Additionally, your insurance rates may go up or your policy may be cancelled.

    Kid genius brothers, 11 and 14, graduate high school and college this

    Kid genius brothers, 11 and 14, graduate high school and college this weekend

    Carson Huey-You, 14, graduated from Texas Christian University on May 13, becoming the youngest graduate in history. He earned a degree in physics and minors in Chinese and math. (Amy Peterson, Texas Christian University)

    Claretta Kimp wants you to understand this:

    Yes, she gave birth to two child prodigies, and yes, they’re graduating from high school and college this weekend at ages 11 and 14, respectively. Carson, her oldest, is leaving Texas Christian University with a degree in physics and minors in Chinese and math. Cannan, the kid brother, will head to TCU next fall to study astrophysics and engineering. The first wants to get a PhD, the other wants to be an astronaut.

    All that, Kimp concedes, is impressive.

    But as a mom, her sons’ academic achievements rank low among her favorite facts.

    “Yes, they’re smart,” Kimp told The Washington Post, “but that’s just a small part of who they are.”

    The brothers, she said, are also best friends, study partners and big fans of their puppy, Klaus. They wrestle and laugh and hold the door open for women, just like their mother taught them. At home, Carson and Cannan do not fight, not even during their epic Star Wars lightsaber battles that make Kimp cringe. And don’t worry, Kimp tells the peanut gallery, their social lives are perfectly adequate. Their childhoods haven’t suffered.

    “My boys have more social skills than most adults,” she said. “They are just normal little boys who do normal little boy things.”

    It was their brilliance, though, that first landed them in the spotlight.

    Four years ago, at age 10, Carson was admitted to TCU in Fort Worth and he began classes as an 11-year-old. On Saturday, he’ll become the youngest graduate in the university’s history.

    Kimp, who studied early education and business at Southern Illinois University, said she converted the spare bedroom in their home into a classroom before Carson was even walking. At first, he played with blocks there. Then she started sitting him in a chair for class.

    He was so excited to learn, Kimp said, that they created a set school day from 9 a.m. to noon. But Carson would blow through the curriculum she planned in an hour. By age 2, he was reading books with chapters, and at age 3 he told his mom he wanted to learn calculus.

    Kimp home-schooled Carson until he was 5 years old and learning at an eighth grade level. She knew he needed to “get out a little bit,” she said, but she struggled to find a school that was willing or able to accommodate him. She finally found a small, private Christian school and cold-called the receptionist.

    “I’m a normal functioning human being and I’m totally for real,” she recalls saying on the phone. “Here’s my situation.”

    The principal eventually accepted Carson, and five years later he graduated as co-valedictorian.

    Then the search for a school willing to accept a child started all over again.

    Kimp said they visited numerous college campuses and listened to lectures about the Ivy League. But when it came time to decide, TCU bubbled to the top.

    Ultimately, the decision was Carson’s. He told his mom that TCU “felt right.”

    “TCU is our Ivy League,” Kimp said.

    Physics professor Magnus Rittby, a senior associate dean, became Carson’s mentor and, eventually, his research adviser. Rittby knew how to ease Carson’s anxieties, push him academically and, most importantly to Kimp, treat her son like the kid he is.

    “This experience at TCU would not have been possible without Dr. Rittby,” she said.

    Carson faced challenges most college kids don’t. Federal financial aid forms, for example, didn’t include his age in the drop-down menu, and his mom had to drive him an hour and a half to school every day in rush hour traffic. Kimp walked him to and from class. And he had a 9 p.m. bedtime — 11 p.m. if he had to cram for a big exam.

    Kimp eventually moved the family closer to campus, so their commute shortened to eight minutes. And the juggling act got even easier once Cannan started tagging along to TCU.

    Because Kimp never wanted to make her sons feel in intellectual competition with each other, the divorced mom tried to avoid forcing Cannan down the same path as Carson. She wanted him to find his own way.

    Cannan began on the traditional route, attending kindergarten with kids his own age. But my second grade, he was bored, and asked to be home-schooled like Carson, reported the Dallas Morning News. Kimp thinks her eldest son’s thirst for learning rubbed off on Cannan.

    Even after she would complete lessons with Cannan, Carson would swoop in to help with homework, demonstrating on the whiteboard in their home how to breeze through complex math equations.

    “They know that they are blessed to have a sibling and to have each other,” Kimp told The Post.

    With both sons, she said she enjoyed “seeing the lightbulb moments.”

    It’s not often that an 11-year old enrolls in a university. We have such a gifted student at TCU. This week, we have the…

    Cannan later enrolled in the same private high school that Carson attended. He went to the school to take exams, but mostly worked remotely from the TCU campus alongside his brother. Cannan even got to begin work on a research project with a TCU astronomy professor.

    On Friday, he’ll walk at his high school graduation, and on Saturday, Carson will receive his college diploma.

    And although her children are geniuses, Kimp chooses to measure her parental success in other ways.

    Recently, Cannan and Carson were playing upstairs with their Star Wars lightsabers, gifts they got this year at Christmas. Made from hard plastic, they made a loud “whack!” every time they clashed together. Kimp listened from downstairs, waiting, she said, for an inevitable scream.

    When it came from Carson, who had been thumped in the arm, she sat there for a minute to see what would happen next.

    “Oh, I’m so sorry,” she heard Cannan said. “Let me rub it for you.”

    She sat back feeling satisfied.

    “Okay, yeah,” she said she thought to herself, “I’ve done a good job.”

    About Hospice Care

    Note. Many families or their loved ones’ doctors often wait too long to order hospice. Hospice is a very valuable service and should be ordered at an earlier stage of illness. Many doctors or family don’t often consider hospice for Alzheimer’s, degenerative old age or other debilitating illnesses where a person is going downhill fast. They should.

    It is unfortunate that many people who died in a hospital emergency room or who received heroic treatments to prolong life in a hospital may have had the alternative of dying at home in familiar surroundings, with family or other loved ones at their side.

    When someone is in crisis or appears to be going downhill fast but there really is no hope for recovery, family often call 911 and start a process which can result in great stress and great emotional discomfort. The loved one who is dying ends up in a hospital and may die there or be transferred to a nursing home where death eventually occurs.

    When there is no longer hope for prolonging life, especially when this decision is made months in advance, hospice is usually a better alternative to other medical intervention.

    Hospice is a form of palliative care for patients who are terminally ill. A commonly used definition for terminally ill patients is, patients who have a progressive, incurable illness that will end in death despite good treatment, and who are sick enough that you would not be surprised if they died within six months.

    Hospice care is a valuable service and is generally underused except for terminal cancer patients. Hospice allows for compassion and dignity in the process of dying. Most families wait too long to have their doctor prescribe hospice from Medicare. It should be considered at an earlier stage.

    Hospice involves a team approach using the following providers.

    • Family caregivers;
    • The patient’ s personal physician;
    • Hospice physician (or medical director);
    • Nurses;
    • Home health aides;
    • Social workers;
    • Clergy or other counselors;
    • Trained volunteers; and
    • Speech, physical, and occupational therapists, if needed.

    The purpose of hospice is the following:

    • Manages the patient’s pain and symptoms;
    • Assists the patient with the emotional and psychosocial and spiritual aspects of dying;
    • Provides needed medications, medical supplies, and equipment;
    • Coaches the family on how to care for the patient;
    • Delivers special services like speech and physical therapy when needed;
    • Makes short-term inpatient care available when pain or symptoms become too difficult to manage at home, or the caregiver needs respite time; and
    • Provides bereavement care and counseling to surviving family and friends.

    A person can receive hospice from Medicare if he or she is

    • eligible for Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance), and
    • the doctor and the hospice medical director certify that the person is terminally ill and probably has less than six months to live, and
    • the person or a family member signs a statement choosing hospice care instead of routine Medicare covered benefits for the terminal illness, and
    • care is received from a Medicare-approved hospice program.

    A person may continue to receive regular Medicare benefits from his or her customary doctors for conditions not related to the hospice condition.

    Assisted Living Laws by State: Know Your Rights

    When parents move to assisted living, we want to be certain they are well cared for. Part of this peace of mind comes from understanding the rights of assisted living residents and the obligations of the assisted living community. But this task is made more challenging because assisted living communities are not regulated nationally like nursing homes. Instead, each U.S. state has its own laws, regulations and licensing standards for assisted living communities. For example, in some states, as many as 25 hours of training are required for caregiving staff while other states have no training requirements.

    A community that looks dazzling may in fact be offering substandard care. And a community that looks a little rough around the edges could be a gem.

    To help you make a fully informed decision, we are posting each state’s assisted living licensing and regulation requirements on our website. This guide is designed to help you answer questions such as:

    • How much training is required for staff?
    • How often are communities inspected, and what do the inspectors look for?
    • Is there a minimum staffing ratio?
    • What are the rights of the resident?
    • Can my parent be evicted?

    We encourage you to familiarize yourself with your rights and the legal obligations of assisted living communities where you live. Click a state below to see its standards.

    Bethpage State Park Golf Courses #hotels

    #bethpage motel

    #

    Bethpage State Park, a mecca for public golf featuring five 18-hole regulation golf courses including the world-renowned Black Course which was the site of the United States Open in 2002 and 2009. Bethpage State Park was developed from an estate owned by the Yoakum family and other properties. The Yoakum family leased their estate to the Lenox Hills Corporation which subsequently used the property to build the Lenox Hills Country Club.

    In the early 1930s, the Bethpage Park Authority purchased the Lenox Hills Country Club and other adjacent properties to build what we now know as Bethpage State Park. Famed golf course architect A.W. Tillinghast was hired to design and oversee construction of three new golf courses (Black, Red and Blue) as well as modify the Lenox Hills Course which became the Green Course. Due to the increased demand for golf, the Yellow Course designed by Alfred Tull was opened in 1958. Approximately 300,000 rounds are played annually on the five courses at Bethpage, all of which start from the Clubhouse area.

    Golf Outings at Bethpage Courses

    Bethpage offers a number of accomodations built to suit your tournament, corporate golf outing, or charitable event. For more information, please contact our Outing Directors.

    The Blue Course was one of the three courses designed by Tillinghast. In 1960, it was redesigned by Alfred Tull to provide room for the Yellow Course. The front nine are considered very challenging, with an easier back nine to finish a round of golf. Some of the slopes are fairly steep.

    About the Nurse Science Program

    The Nurse Science Department offers a program of study leading to an associate in applied science degree. The Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). formerly National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC), and approved by the Oklahoma Board of Nursing. Graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurse licensure (NCLEX-RN). The course of study is a 72-credit hour program, which includes classroom and laboratory instruction on campus, as well as supervised clinical experience at affiliating health agencies. Because there are more students applying for nursing courses than it is possible to enroll, a Nurse Science Admissions Committee selects students for the program. Two classes are admitted to the nursing program each academic year. A retention grade point average of at least 2.5 on college work completed is necessary in order to be considered for the nursing courses. High school transcripts and/or GED (General Equivalency Diploma) scores are evaluated if no college work has been completed. The following factors are considered in selecting students:

    • Retention grade point average (GPA) of previous academic work.
    • Nursing Pre-Admission Test scores. Click here for more information on testing.
    • Required general education and related courses completed.

    All required documents must be in the nursing office by dates published for the fall and spring semesters. It is possible to complete the nursing courses in four semesters following a semester of general education coursework. However, if the student has other responsibilities such as family or job, he or she may elect to enroll in general education and related courses before seeking admission to the nursing courses. After admission into the nursing program, the courses must be taken sequentially as listed. All students considering entrance into the nursing program are urged to seek advisement from the Health Sciences Academic Advisor in the Nurse Science Department.

    Computer Literacy Requirement

    Students enrolled in the program will be expected to use the computer for generating papers, testing, computer assisted instrucion, and electronic searches. Those students who have no computer skills are advised that an introductory computer course is recommended. The nursing curriculum at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City is computer intensive. Graduation from the program allows the student to meet the computer literacy requirement.
