It Took Four Years of Lying on a Riverbed for a Photographer to Capture This Shot

Beavers are dank for more than just their butt juice, though—as a keystone species, they have a strong effect on their environment. Their dams can create wetlands on which other animals rely, and even clean the water and reduce erosion, according to an Animal Protection of New Mexico fact sheet.

Anyway, go off to feed your kits, little dude.

How to successfully recover data from a failed RAID

Recovering data from a failed RAID can easily turn into a costly ordeal. Please read this page carefully before proceeding. If you would like to get help from experts, please consider using our fee-based RAID recovery service.

First determine whether the RAID is hardware-based or software-based. The recovery procedures are very different.

Recovering a hardware RAID

First determine if the problem is caused by the underlying RAID mechanism. If it is not, follow the simpler recovery procedures for an ordinary drive. The following causes of problem are not related to the RAID:

  • Virus attacks.
  • The volume being deleted, resized, reformatted or otherwise changed in Disk Manager or other disk management utilities.

If the problem seems to be in the RAID mechanism, determine the operating state of the RAID and take the appropriate actions.

Avoid the most common mistakes that may cause data to become unrecoverable.

Hardware RAID operating states

Current status is normal.
No controller or disk errors.
No recent change in RAID configuration.

RAID is displayed as a single disk.
Volume configuration has not been changed (screenshot ).

Volume is inaccessible or accessible with missing files.

RAID mechanism is operating normally .
Problem may be unrelated to RAID.

Abnormal RAID status such as “offline”, “inactive”, “undefined”, etc.
There may be disk or controller hardware errors.

RAID is not displayed. Sometimes the individual member disks are displayed as unformatted disks (screenshots ).

Volume is inaccessible.

Recovering a software RAID

First determine if the problem is caused by the underlying RAID mechanism. If it is not, follow the simpler recovery procedures for an ordinary drive. The following causes of problem are not related to the RAID:

  • Virus attacks.
  • The volume being reformatted.

If the problem seems to be in the RAID mechanism, determine the operating state of the RAID and take the appropriate actions.

Note that a RAID 0 is also referred to as a striped volume.

Digital Running Records on Raz-Plus

With our Online Running Record tool, Raz-Plus or Raz-Kids members can:

  • Assign and listen to recordings of Benchmark Passages and Books.
  • Score recordings using an online running record tool.

BENCHMARK PASSAGES & RUNNING RECORDS

Find students’ instructional levels by assessing their reading skills with developmentally appropriate texts while recording reading behavior. Benchmark Passages are short text selections that are one part of a three-part process to help place students at their instructional levels for leveled reading sessions and to assess their readiness to progress to the next level.

Why Benchmark Passages

Benchmark Passages assess comprehension and reward students’ progress from level to level. They are one part of a three-part process that provides a more complete assessment of reading behavior and comprehension than any of the parts independently.

  • Each level has 2 fiction and 2 nonfiction passages.
  • Each level has at least 1 fiction-nonfiction passage pair on the same topic.
  • Each passage uses a level-appropriate percentage of words from leveled books at that reading level.
    • aa-E = 100%
    • F-J = 95% + 5% new words
    • K-Z = 90% + 10% new words
  • The text of the entire passage is used in the Running Record.
  • Most are one page long, but upper level passages can be two pages.
  • ALL are available on Raz-Plus .

How to Use Benchmark Passages

  1. Give a student a Benchmark Passage he or she has never seen before to read aloud. If you prefer to use familiar text, use the fiction-nonfiction topic pair at each level. Use one passage from the pair to support a student’s understanding of the topic before assessing with the other passage.
  2. Record the student’s reading behavior using the passage’s Running Record form.
  3. If a student scores 90 percent, assess the student’s comprehension using a Quick Check from Level A-Z and Retelling Rubrics .
  4. If a student scores from 90%-94% percent on the running record and answers comprehension questions at 80%-100%, he or she is at an instructional level. (For more details, see About Running Records ).
  5. Use Benchmark WOWzers to reward students’ progress from level to level.

Clients Love the Convenience, Speed, and Accuracy of
Internet Proofreading from BusinessProofreading.com

Internet Proofreading Is Convenient

In this “I need it yesterday” world, you’re sure to agree with my clients that Internet proofreading is a blessing. The convenience of being able to simply email a message or attachment and have it returned to you polished and ready to impress is an absolute necessity. With Internet proofreading, all your copyediting can be handled quickly and professionally.

“In the advertising/copywriting business, I always hear from customers who are in a hurry for copyediting. It’s such a blessing to know that BusinessProofreading.com is available to help me out in a pinch. The convenience factor of being able to email or fax a project to Cathy and have it returned in just a short while is a real lifesaver!”

Internet Proofreading Is Fast

I constantly hear my clients’ kind words about quick turnaround. Internet proofreading, in and of itself, speeds up the process. And I always strive to meet your deadlines even if you have a rush job.

“Cathy Kessler has proven time and again to be a valuable asset in enhancing the effectiveness of many of my different types of written communications. I know that when I send something to Cathy for copyediting, not only will it be returned to me in a prompt manner, but also the document will be grammatically correct. Cathy’s helpful insights in the area of business proofreading have enabled me to clearly state what I want the reader to know, while doing it in a very straightforward, professional manner. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone who understands the value of the well-edited written word.”

Internet Proofreading Is Accurate

Most of my clients rave about the accuracy of Internet proofreading. Because the copyediting is done in digital format, the results are more reliable than marking the changes on paper and then having to make adjustments on your document later. If you’d like to see the changes I’ve made while copyediting, just ask, and I’ll gladly mark them for you.

“It’s really hard to find your own mistakes, especially when you know how text/copy should read. I always run all my projects past Cathy’s meticulous eyes before releasing a project to press or production. On more than one occasion, she has found typos or grammatical errors that would have cost me money and aggravation to reprint, not to mention client dissatisfaction as a result, I’ve never had to reprint a project. I would highly recommend Cathy’s copyediting and proofreading services to anyone who writes or uses text/copy of any kind. She’s the best!!”

Thread: Just a quick word about the Brain Hospice timeline

Just a quick word about the Brain Hospice timeline

So, I’ve recommended the brainhospice dot com symptom timeline as a reference point to others in the past. I’m not finding it very accurate as we wind down.

At this time it is about six weeks since my sister fulfilled the timeline’s descriptors for 2 to 5 days left, and for roughly two weeks she’s fulfilled the descriptors for just hours .

I knew the top of that timeline was kind of iffy but now I’m finding the bottom is too.

Thank you all for your good thoughts and kind wishes. I send ’em back atcha.

This process must just be so heartbreaking for you. God bless you, pal. God bless your sister.

64 yrs old
March 6, 2012: Diagnosed Anaplastic Large (T-) Cell Lymphoma, Stage 1 (ALK-)
3 rounds of CHOP unsuccessful.
Beginning mid-June, 2012, received 6 cycles of Brentuximab at Huntsman Cancer Institute, University of Utah. Pet scans after 4th and 6th cycles showed no evidence of lymphoma.
Autologous bone marrow transplant in November of 2012.
17 radiation treatments for consolidation purposes between Dec. 26 and Jan.17.
100 day post BMT check-up (2/26/13): NED. Pet scan on 7/10/13: Still NED.
One year post transplant check-up: Still fine; NED.
18month post-translant scans, etc. All fine, save a bit of arthritis.
11/14/14: 24 month post transplant check-up–still NED. Scanziety still sucks.
5/15/15: No NED this time; reactive nodes in groin; scheduling biopsy.
Relapse confirmed/ started every 3 week brentuximab
Allo transplant in Feb 2016.
100 day post transplant scans in June 2016 fine.

Sib we are going through the same thing here. I’ve been searching for a better lung cancer death timeline. Jody

May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favour. Born 1960. Diagnosed 4/2011 with one tumor, LUL, NSCLC. Tumor size 1.1 inches. Thoracic surgery 6/1/2011. No action taken. Eight weeks of radiation and chemo. Carbo and Taxol. Follow up with four rounds of Carbo and Alimta.
December 2011 CT scan shows all clear.
April 2012 CT scan shows all clear. July 2012 had several x-rays taken at the chiropractor for shoulder pain. Took them to the onc and nothing suspicious noted. See them again in Oct.
October didn’t work out. Pain in the left shoulder continued to worsen and lymph nodes in the supraclavical swelled so I called the onc and they bumped the regular scan up to September 19 and we went for the results on the 24th. The tumor is back and the spread is extensive. Option 1: Try targeting chemos that may work and then on to clinical trials. These would give me about a year or so if the cancer responds. Option 2: Do no treatment and let nature take its course. This will give me six months give or take. As good as I feel right now, I�m going for door #2 and will continue to live well and enjoy myself until I don�t. I�ll keep you posted. Live it up everyone!

7 months into hospice and palliative care. It has been a very good relationship with the organization as a whole with a minor glitch. April 2013 spent the night at hospice facility, PICC line inserted for morphine drip. I said I wouldn�t but, had a hospital bed delivered. Started 10 rounds of palliative radiation to shrink the neck tumor. Busy month for me!

I’ve taken a couple of nasty falls this last week. (first of mid-May) Right on the cancer shoulder. So I have a life alert necklace on me now. I wish I could get my hands on a small scooter!

There is another node swelling on the other side of my neck. Still small.

Sorry you are going through this (yet again). She sure is lucky to have you in her corner.





Life Before Death – Consultations with Death – The Last Word –

#hospice quotes

#

While so many people avoid talking about death and dying like it is the plague, some of our finest philosophers, poets and scholars have waxed lyrical about it. From cynical to profound, reflective to encouraging, inspiring to downright funny… they try and make sense of the eventuality we all have to face.

“Live as you would have wished to live when you are dying.”

– Christian Furchtegott Gellert, German poet (1715 – 1769).

“You matter because you are you, and you matter to the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”

— Dame Cicely Saunders, nurse, physician and writer, and founder of hospice movement (1918 – 2005).

“The nearer she came to death, the more, by some perversity of nature, did she enjoy living.”

– Ellen Glasgow, American novelist (1873-1945).

“Some people are so afraid to die that they never begin to live.”

– Henry Van Dyke, American short-story writer, poet and essayist (1852 – 1933).

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.”

– Isaac Asimov, American science fiction novelist scholar (1920 – 1992).

“Death helps us to see what is worth trusting and loving and what is a waste of time.”

— J. Neville Ward, Methodist minister (1915 – 1992).

“The question is not whether we will die, but how we will live.”

– Dr Joan Borysenko, medical scientist and psychologist (b.1945).

“As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well used brings happy death.”

– Leonardo da Vinci, Italian polymath (1452 – 1519).

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

— Mahatma Gandhi, Indian philosopher (1869 – 1948).

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

– Mark Twain, American novelist and humorist (1835 – 1910).

“Forgive yourself before you die. Then forgive others.”

– Morrie Schwartz, American educator and writer (1916 – 1995).

“When you learn how to die, you learn how to live.”

– Morrie Schwartz, American educator and writer (1916 – 1995).

“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”

– Norman Cousins, American political journalist, author, professor, and world peace advocate (1915 -1990).

“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.”

– Pope Paul VI, Italian Pope (1897 – 1978).

“. almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

– Steve Jobs, American Entrepreneur, Apple co-Founder (b.1955).

“Every man dies – Not every man really lives.”

– William Ross Wallace, American poet (1819 – 1881).

“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

– William Saroyan, American writer (1908 – 1981)

“I am not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”

– Woody Allen, American screenwriter, film director, actor, comedian, writer, musician and playwright (b.1935).

“For mortals vanished from the day’s sweet light. I shed no tear; rather I mourn for those who day and night live in death’s fear.”
