More I knew going in not to have high expectations of a Motel 6 and I knew we only needed a place to sleep for one night so I didn t think it would be as horrible as it was. If I could give zero stars I would. Something seemed wrong right away because the comforters were totally wrinkled but I thought maybe they left them sitting in dryer too long. Wrong! Underneath the comforters were sheets full of long black hairs. The fan in the bathroom also wasn t covered. My husband asked to be moved to another room. The next room the AC had a high pitched noise that you couldn t correct. In the 3rd room, one of the beds totally buckled when my husband was checking for hair in the sheets. The 4th room that we ended settling with still had many hairs in the bed and boogers on the wall next to one bed. I cleaned the wall myself and we all slept on top of the comforters and got up early to get out as soon as we could. I m currently washing everything that touched any part of those rooms. I will never stay at a Motel 6 again!

More Let s start off by saying the pictures of the queen room are very decieving, the room is very small, and the bathroom is in the room like a studio which can be awkward if sharing. When you walk in the room it looks promising because the decor is minimal and nothing is upholstered. The room looks like you could essentially hose it down to clean it which leads me to believe it will be very clean. It s not. There was visible dust and dandruff on the headboard too and in the corners coming off the wall at the base of the matress. There was hair on everything which I m trying to convince myself was just from the dryer. So then you think to yourself, ok I just need to sleep here, get some rest no big deal well. The mattress is on a base that can only be described like one of those pull out couches from the 90 s. It has one of those bars right across your back so you wake up in agony. We picked this hotel because chains (imo) usually have figured out how to give the most affordable and pleasant experience. Not in this case. Shame.

Saint Jude Hospice opens new state offices in Platteville and La Crosse

#st jude hospice


Thursday, Dec. 05, 2013 — 12:00 AM

MADISON — Saint Jude Hospice now offers loving care for patients and families facing terminal illness from two new locations in Wisconsin: Platteville and La Crosse.

Saint Jude’s mission is to serve all patients, in the comfort of their own home, who are facing terminal illness by bringing healing to those when their hope has changed from cure to comfort.

Nurses are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They have no wait list and will respond to all requests within two hours.

Services in Wisconsin

Saint Jude Hospice has been in Wisconsin since July of 2010, when it opened its doors in Madison.

Today it provides comprehensive hospice services in the state from five locations: Madison, Baraboo, Delavan, La Crosse, and Platteville, which allows it to serve 26 counties in Wisconsin. It also has offices in Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska.

Saint Jude Hospice goes beyond the standards of hospice medical care by bringing love, comfort, and support to patients and families. It also offers complimentary music and massage therapy, spiritual support, and bereavement care — in addition to medical care, home health and homemaker services, inpatient care, continuous care, respite services, volunteer services, and medication management.

Catholic hospice

CEO Tom Moreland has felt a strong calling to serve people and to also serve the Church, which is what ultimately led him to open a Catholic hospice inspired by Jesus’ words: Love one another, as I have loved you.

Moreland explains, “A caring community devotes more attention, not less, to members facing the most vulnerable times in their lives. Our hospice program helps do this.”

Saint Jude Hospice is endorsed by nine archbishops and bishops across the Midwest. Beyond complying with state and federal regulations, it also follows the Ethical and Religious Directives of Catholic Healthcare Services.

More information can be found at or by calling offices in La Crosse at 608-781-5490 or Platteville at 608-348-2778.

Colorado Bureau Of Investigation Admits Dozens Of Faulty DUI Blood Tests –


Colorado Bureau Of Investigation Admits Dozens Of Faulty DUI Blood Tests

DENVER (CBS4) Responding to a CBS4 investigation, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation has acknowledged at least 56 of the DUI blood tests it conducted in the last six months were incorrect.

“The initial results in each of those 56 cases showed lower alcohol levels for the drivers than when additional quality assurance retesting occurred, said Susan Medina, a spokesperson for the CBI. “There is no indication that any defendant was inappropriately charged with an offense based on test results showing an erroneously high level of alcohol in a driver’s bloodstream.”

The CBI opened labs in July 2015 in Pueblo and Grand Junction and since then has done about 1,500 DUI blood tests for the Colorado State Patrol and other law enforcement agencies. Medina said the faulty tests amounted to about 4 percent of the DUI testing the labs have conducted since last July.

The CBI said it learned of its erroneous lab results “in recent months“ when an independent lab checked two blood samples that had also been tested by the CBI and the independent lab ChemaTox discovered what the CBI calls “anomalies.

ChemaTox told CBS4 it notified state authorities of the problems in December 2015. The CBI said it then checked some of its other DUI alcohol results and confirmed its lab testing problems.

“While a thorough review remains in progress, said CBI, “it is believed the cause of the anomalies has been identified and corrected.

Medina declined to say if the problem was human error, testing equipment, or some other factor.

Sarah Urfer of ChemaTox labs told CBS4, “I contacted CBI and said, Look, we had an anomaly and it s 24 percent different.’

Urfer said the anomalies are important “because those are people’s lives at stake.

David Miller, a Denver-based defense attorney who defends DUI clients, told CBS4 the CBI needs to come clean.

“It creates a problem with the integrity of the system. They’re not saying what the problem is so we don’t know what the problem is, so we’re going to have to get full disclosure to start with. I think it s up to prosecutors now to look at each case and see if the convictions are proper in the first place and notify the client or lawyer as to what s happening, said Miller.

David Miller (credit: CBS)

He said the CBS4 investigation revealing the faulty testing shows a “huge problem. It’s a big deal if you’re the person affected by it. It’s a big deal individually and if you look at the big picture, if you are the person affected by this it’s a very big deal.

Miller said to re-establish credibility, the CBI needs to have all 1,500 blood samples it has examined since last July re-tested.

In many cases, blood drawn from a suspect is a critical piece of evidence establishing either guilt or innocence in DUI cases. There are an estimated 30,000 DUI cases in Colorado each year, according to the CBI.

Dr. Pat Sulik, a chemist with Rocky Mountain Instrumental Laboratories, checked 16 blood samples from the CBI in recent months. She said of those 16 samples, seven were problematic having at least a 5 percent variance from the readings she found. Of those seven, she said five had more than a 10 percent discrepancy.

Dr. Pat Sulik (credit: CBS)

Sulik said she would normally expect to have her results and the CBI results be nearly identical 99 percent of the time.

“To see this many discrepancies when the CBI just started this summer, this is, at a simple overview, way too many discrepancies, said Sulik. “When we saw our first large discrepancy we retested the sample and gave ourselves a heart attack.”

Sulik said the CBI’s erroneous, lower testing numbers mean “they are not being taken off the road, the DUI law is not being enforced if the state lab is coming up with lower numbers.

Sulik said in at least one case she checked, the suspect in a DUI case would have faced a more serious charge had the CBI lab testing been correct the first time around.

Ironically, the CBI only began doing this kind of testing after similar testing by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment came under fire in 2013 and CDPHE testing of DUI blood samples was shut down. In that case, defense attorneys maintained that the Department of Health testing was biased in favor of prosecutors and that staff was inadequately trained in handling blood samples.

In 2014 the state Legislature approved a bill providing nearly $2 million in annual funding and the hiring of five new full-time employees for the CBI to take over the DUI blood testing that was previously conducted by the Department of Health. Now the Department of Health is assisting in the investigation of the faulty CBI testing.

According to Medina’s statement to CBS4, ”After the review the CBI will issue amended reports to the law enforcement agencies that submitted the blood samples, and work with stakeholders to ensure accurate scientific results and prosecutions statewide.

Mike Rankin, the CBI Director, said, ”While the CBI works extremely hard to avoid any testing errors in our laboratories, the quality assurance procedures served their designed purpose of safeguarding the integrity of the program.

The CBI declined to answer any other questions from CBS4 citing an ongoing review of what happened. Medina said the agency might be able to provide more information once the review is completed.

Miller told CBS4 he intended to reopen any DUI cases he has handled in the last seven months that involved CBI blood testing. Urfer called the problem “very frustrating. I’ve been through this twice before. It seems like this should be a preventable problem. There are a number of labs that have not had these problems.

Boone Pickens

Join the Pickens Plan Army.

The other day, my team uncovered some videos of the news interviews I had done back in the 1980s. Those were heady times. It was the start of the corporate takeover and shareholder rights era, and I was not just in the thick of it, I was driving it. And communicating clearly and effectively was critical to our success.

Strong communication has always been my core asset. I’ve always believed you can trace every problem to a lack of communication or lack of clarity in communication.

These days, I sometimes find myself literally at a loss for words. Over the Christmas holiday, I had several strokes. But with a little determination and some aggressive speech therapy, I regained 90 percent of my speech.

However, last week, I had a Texas-sized fall — one that required hospitalization. I am still mentally strong, and I comprehend and process information like I did before the incident. It’s just a little hard to find the words I m looking for to speak clearly. Speech therapy will fix that, I’m confident.

Just as I exercise my body daily I will exercise my brain and continue with rigorous speech therapy to regain what I can. I am always up for a good challenge.

Nine years ago today, we launched the Pickens Plan. We knew we had a great idea, and people across the country agreed. We d held focus groups and found that Americans knew about the problem, but saw that the country lacked an energy plan. They were hungry for something that would work, a specific energy plan that included a little bit of everything solar, wind, and natural gas.

For the final podcast on the history of the Pickens Plan, I talk with Peter McCollum and Jason Huntsberry. Although they referred to themselves as little cogs in a big machine, they were a major part of the tight-knit team that makes the Pickens Plan tick.

Last month I turned 89 years old, mindful of the fact I’m now 24 years beyond traditional retirement age. My post-65 era has included the most productive years of my life. I was 68 when I left Mesa Petroleum. I turned out the lights at 6 p.m. my last day in the office, as I Continue reading The Old Man Makes a Comeback

Washington, D.C. is as divided as it has ever been, and it has become difficult to set politics aside and get things done. But fortunately the Pickens Plan benefited from a bipartisan team that came together to promote a plan that has our nation’s best interests in mind.

For the latest episode of the Pickens Podcast, I sat down with Rich Galen, a columnist and former press secretary for U.S. Senators Dan Quayle (R-IN) and Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX), and Amy Weiss, former White House Deputy Press Secretary to President Bill Clinton and press secretary and campaign manager for U.S. Rep Mike Synar (D-OK). These two have reached across the aisle to help make the Pickens Plan work. It just goes to show how successful you can be when you can look past personal politics to focus on a mission.

Without question, America is a nation committed to environmental leadership. All you have to do is look at how much cleaner our country has gotten over the last 10 years through the expanded use of natural gas. But the Paris Climate Accord is another bad deal negotiated by the Obama Administration, and America should applaud Continue reading T.

Get the Best Fight Songs (HQ Stereo) on 20 Different Music CD’s. Please Help Support This Site.

Welcome to the “LARGEST” College Football Fight Song web site in the universe, where all the songs are now in MP3 format. I have always been a fan of college football and especially the Nittany Lions of Penn State. All the MP3’s on this site have been compressed 11 to 1 in size and reformatted in mono, all to help save webspace. It has been a rough ride these past 2-3 years as interest seems to hae waned a bit and it is more costly to keep the site up for FREE! And now certain schools like Miami (FL), Washington and Utah forced me to remove the school’s songs from the website, even though they are free to download and isn’t this kind of like FREE advertisement for those schools? And all those millions of dollars the football programs bring and to top that with the price of tuition, you would think they would want to share the songs with their alumni, current students and fans of those schools. If anyone can help, please do to get those songs back up and available on this site. I am also in the process of adding as many or all of the football schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). After completion, there will be well over 1,000 total songs for you FREE to download. I will also be reformatting all the music CD’s, moving teams to the correct conference CD and adding all the new schools, even the FCS schools.

College Football Fight Music CD’s (21 Volumes)

My College Football Fight Music CD/MP3 Store has changed many times over the years as the NCAA Football Conference realignment is a never ending process as money dictates which schools play in the
(5) major BCS conferences and who play in the other FBS mid-major football conferences. My collection now contains 21 different CD’s, with Volumes 1 & 13 focus on all five of the power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12, SEC and Notre Dame). These same conferences are also focused on: Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19, 20 and 14 (alma maters). The mid-major conferences, which now include the AAC, CONF-USA, MAC, MWC an the SUNBELT are representive on Volumes 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 (alma maters). I also now have different fight music CD’s (Volumes 16, 17 and 18 (alma maters) focusing on the schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Of course it is impossible to include all the songs on the CD’s, thats for both the FCS and FBS CD’s, so you can also purchase the individual songs from each college for only $1-$5 each depending on the number of songs I have available. And if you already purchased in the past, at least a donation would be of great help to me. To send a donation, just click on the PayPal banner just below. Thank you very much.

Day view of Manhattan, New York, USA #manhattan, #new #york, #usa, #panorama,


Open Virtual Tour

In 2006 I shot our very first spherical aerial panorama. from which the AirPano project started, in the beautiful place of the Colorado and the San Juan rivers confluence (USA):

The result was overwhelming by looking at the large screen one had a total illusion of flying over the canyon. And so we decided to continue our experiments.

The next attempt was made in 2007 above the island of Manhattan. I remember this photo shoot by one funny detail: there were no headphones for passengers in the helicopter’s cabin. I had to shout from the back seat (while trying to overcome the engine roar that was coming from the open door) to let the pilot know where to go. He didn’t hear me anyway, so in order to change the shooting position I had to tap on his shoulder and then after he looked at me I had to point the direction with my finger where the thumb down meant moving lower. And guess how I showed him to go higher 🙂 It was fun.

After that incident, when hiring a helicopter I always ask: Do you have passenger headphones in the cabin?
And pilots are always surprised: But of course! Is it possible not to have them?
Yes, it is possible, I answer In New York 🙂

Despite of all the difficulties, this photo shoot was accomplished, delivering world’s first virtual photo tour above Manhattan .

There were many more flights after this one, and many like-minded people joined AirPano project in the process. As of today we shot around 100 spherical panoramas of the most interesting and beautiful places in all the continents of our planet. Except for Antarctica. We also made virtual photo tours over the world’s most beautiful cities.

In 2011 we returned to New York to once again photograph Manhattan: this time making it much better technically and artistically. Enjoy the daytime aerial panoramas of Manhattan now. The evening flight over Manhattan and the large photographic virtual tour will be published in the nearest future.

New York is the most famous city of the USA, and Manhattan is the most famous part of New York. It all started 400 years ago when the most famous and profitable in human history real estate deal was made: the Native Americans sold this ‘not so useful’ piece of land to Europeans for 24 dollars.

Since that time the island has changed dramatically. For 24 dollars one can probably buy a ticket to the Empire State Building.

Present day Manhattan is the most populated island on Earth. The land itself costs about 40 billion US dollars, and the cost of the entire Manhattan, including its real estate, reaches over 3 trillion US dollars.

This remarkable part of New York City is best to be discovered on foot not only because of the infamous New York traffic or cost of parking in New York. There is a joke in New York that only wasteful people can afford driving in New York, because the time one spends on finding a parking spot sometimes equals the time it takes to drive from one side of Manhattan to another.

New York is known to be a financial capital of the world, and the island of Manhattan is where all the banks, offices, largest insurance companies and corporations are located literally one on top of another. Basically the rest of New York, and eventually, the rest of the United States, work for Manhattan, making sure that this gigantic city inside of the city continues its mission processing the wealth of the whole world.

Besides a large number of museums, almost every building in Manhattan has a historical value. Old buildings harmoniously coexist with the best examples of the modern architecture. Most famous New York attractions are located in Manhattan, including Empire State Building mentioned above, Central Park and Times Square. There is also colorful China Town and bright Broadway they are all located on this island. It is a shame not to bring a photo of Manhattan from your trip to New York!

We also made our modest Manhattan photo album. These panoramas were photographed in the summer of 2011.

Best Cheap Car Insurance in Washington, D #cheapest #auto #insurance #in #washington


Best Cheap Car Insurance in Washington, D.C.

Finding cheap auto coverage in Washington, D.C. can be challenging. District of Columbia car insurance comes with some of the steepest prices in the country because of several factors, including high population density and accident frequency. Car insurance rates are also plain unpredictable; a single policy can fetch quotes that are thousands of dollars apart, depending on the insurer.

To help D.C. drivers simplify their shopping and get a quality deal, NerdWallet researched rates from the five largest insurance companies operating in the district and found the three cheapest options for these driver types:

Cheapest for good drivers

Drivers in their early 20s typically don t have families, expensive cars or high-priced assets to protect — and can usually get by with less car insurance than older, more established motorists. As a result, young drivers can find pretty cheap Washington, D.C. car insurance. USAA again led the field with the cheapest estimate in our analysis. Geico returned a sample quote under $38 a month, which probably won t break even a young driver s budget.

Cheapest for drivers with one at-fault accident

Your risk profile goes up if you have at-fault accidents on your record, which could mean higher premiums when shopping around. In our test, causing just one incident raised a driver s lowest available quote by almost $400 a year. That said, rates could be a lot worse. Sample prices nearly reached $5,000 a year on the high end of our study, proving that drivers with spotty records can benefit more than just about anyone else from comparing as many offers as possible.

Cheapest for drivers with poor credit

For drivers placed in the lowest credit tier as determined by the industry.

Frustrating as it may be, having a low credit score can be particularly damaging to your D.C. car insurance premium. The lowest average quote in our test — from Geico at $1,608 per year — was about $550 a year more than lowest price offered to good drivers of the same age with no credit issues. State Farm offered a significantly higher sample price.

Cheapest for retired drivers

For drivers in their mid- to late 60s who no longer use their car for commuting.

For most categories, NerdWallet averaged rates from the largest insurers for 30-year-old men and women in 10 ZIP codes and with 100/300/50 liability insurance limits, 100/300 uninsured and underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage, and $50,000 uninsured and underinsured property damage coverage. We used a 2012 Toyota Camry in all cases.

Our sample retired driver was 67 and drove 50% fewer annual miles than other groups. Our sample young driver was 22 and carried the minimum required coverage. These are sample rates generated through Quadrant Information Services. Your own rates will be different.

Recovering a database with a missing transaction log #microsoft #sql #server, #sql


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.

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.

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 #salem, #wondered, #into, #good, #looking, #program, #university, #state,


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 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.


  • 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:

Do you have other questions about the law? Visit the LegalMatch law Library to see over 7000 articles ranging from discovering the Age of Consent in each State to the Legal Liabilities of Zoos. Also visit these social sites for more information about what LegalMatch does for business and consumers: Learn more about LegalMatch on LinkedIn ; LegalMatch on Facebook and LegalMatch on Twitter or read consumer reviews of LegalMatch on Yelp. 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.”

Best Interest Rate on Senior Citizens Bank Fixed Deposits- July 2017 #fd


Best Interest Rate on Senior Citizens Bank Fixed Deposits July 2017

Highest Interest Rate on Bank Fixed Deposits for Senior Citizens July 2017

The post lists down the rate of interest on Bank fixed deposits for Senior Citizens as of July 4, 2017.

You might want to bookmark this page as the FD interest rates would be updated every month. Would help you in better decision making.

Fixed Deposit Highlights:

  • Most banks offer FDs for tenure of 7 Days to 10 Years.
  • The Ratnakar Bank IDBI Bank do offer fixed deposits up to 20 years too .
  • For very short Term Deposits the interest rate is similar to that of Savings Account and so you should not worry about FD. Also Interest up to Rs 10,000 in Saving Account is Tax free .
  • Most banks compound interest quarterly
  • Banks offer Loan/Overdraft against the amount available in Fixed Deposit. The interest is generally 0.5% to 1% more than that offered to FD.
  • TDS (Tax deduction at source) at the rate of 10% is deducted, if the interest income is more than Rs 10,000 in financial year per bank. You can fill Form15G/H
  • You can fill Form15G/H if you want to avoid TDS .
  • There might be penalty for pre-mature withdrawal of Fixed Deposits

Fixed Deposit Interest Rates:

The highest interest rate is offered by The Deutsche Bank at 8.25% for 1 to 2 years Fixed Deposit.

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

  • FD for Less than 1 Year
  • FD for 1 to 2 years
  • 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.

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.

    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:
