can you afford to lose the tuition, i.e., in the worst case scenario where illness means your daughter must withdraw, could you afford an additional year of college? Also, read the fine print. Does is cover the full year, Is it semester by semester? Does she have to withdraw by a certain time to get the entire 80 percent, or could you collect substantially less than that? [ Reply | More ]

Insurance is meant to be a bad deal in the strict actuarial sense- you pay 2% of a base level (tuition for you) for something that has a 1% chance of happening. You buy it if you cannot afford to pay it out if the horrific unlikely event happens (i.e. you have to pay for an alternative event like a rehab center or another activity) and you have 2 bills, but you do not buy it on the chances alone.

She did not wash hands before doing exam--she did the first time but then ran out of room and came back in while I was lying on table. Put on new gloves but did not wash hands a second time before examining me. Had trouble seeing what she wanted with the speculum so had medical assistant hold a flashlight so she could get a better look which made me feel like a freak--none of the other doctors have had to do this. Didn't give me a chance to ask the question I wanted, kept interrupting, and as I had young DS with me, I was tending to him and left without asking my question. Turned right back and asked her my question--just if my bloodwork had come in from last week and she said, "you know, I do have other patients." Just awful! Glad she is leaving the practice. Just wish she were leaving sooner so I wouldn't have to worry about her being on call when I go into labor. [ Reply | More ]

Totally typical for study abroad. Think about it: you get a relatively small group of mostly girls in a somewhat stressful environment, isolated by language and culture from the place they're living, and they'll go at each other. Horrible dynamics. Tell her to approach someone she hasn't hung out with (just one person), or else go out on her own; highly likely she'll meet some natives and have a better time. [ Reply | More ]

According to AIPAC, Israel has been the largest recipient of U.S. foreign aid since 1976, and in the last 20 years economic aid to that country has been slowly phased out in favor of military aid. Israel receives about $3 billion ($8 million a day) directly from the United States in military financing each year, which is about one-fifth of what is allocated for the entire foreign aid budget. Approximately 25% of the financing received from the U.S. is used by Israel to purchase military equipment directly from Israeli manufacturers. The only country allowed to do this with American aid is Israel, and their arms industry benefits from the subsidy. According to the Congressional Research Service’s report “U.S. Foreign Aid to Israel," between 2001 an 2008 Israel was the, "7th largest arms supplier to the world with sales worth a total of 9.9 billion.” [ Reply | More ]

1st and foremost, i want USA to be neutral towards Israel. USA shouldn't be an enabler of Israel's crimes. it's one thing for a country to suffer civil war or any other local event and not jump into action. a very different thing is to be in the oppressors' side so actively. [ Reply | More ]

np: This. I'm part Jewish, not actually a Jew but think the reformed version of the religion is quite wonderful and the culture has produced amazing thinkers, writers, etc. However, on this one issue I cannot "stand with Israel" just because I happen to like Jews. The Zionists are unreasonable and only care about themselves and their own agenda. The Palestinians have gotten their hands dirty, yes, I am not saying they are all angels, but Israel is just as guilty about prolonging this bloodbath. They do not want to compromise ANYTHING.

Jews are responsible for countless contributions to science, technology, cultre, business, medicine... anything that improves the condition of humanity, you can immediately connect profound contributions from Jews. Muslims have brought us terrorism, war, conflict--and little else. Yet the world and apparentlyh much of this chatboard, sides with the Muslims. Makes me sick. [ Reply | More ]

I don't know that they want to tell me anything.

And that this was a wrong decision but they can't take it back now. Of course one just still says "well excuse the hell out of me for giving you life" and the other one says "well if I stayed with your dad I'd have stayed a poor housewife all of my life."

This is a good blog about it: http://articles.lucieslist.com/0-week-28-the-truth-about-cord-blood-banking. The one interesting thing is that when you donate, often times they'll tell you that there was not enough blood to make the donation. Like 50% if the time or something like that. However, with private banking, it's also 100% enough. That seemed fishy to me. [ Reply | More ]
