www.DemocracyNow.org - Healthcare costs for insured working Americans continue to rise, with premiums increasing 9 percent for family plans over the past year. In this part of the interview on Democracy Now!, filmmaker Michael Moore discusses how health insurers have used the funds they receive from premiums to try to undermine their critics, including Moore himself. A health insurance company whistleblower, Wendell Potter, previously revealed in a Democracy Now! interview how industry executives plotted to undermine Moore's 2007 film "Sicko," which took on the for-profit U.S. healthcare system.

http://www.hipaaexams.com HIPAA training for only $15. Get $5 off per person using this link: http://www.hipaaexams.com/hipaa-training-utube.html What HIPAA Means for Doctors Doctors and their staff find HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, quite distressing at times. This is due to the fact that every action you take with a patient or a patient's health information is regulated by HIPAA laws. The act dictates how claims are submitted to insurance companies, what information must be gathered before healthcare services are performed, and how patient information is shared with others. In addition, HIPAA dictates how you share your patient information with other doctors and staff. This can make it difficult to get assistance or opinions about diagnosis. You must get a patient's permission to bring in another doctor to consult on a condition. You must also avoid mentioning the patient's name or any identifying information such as room number or physical characteristics if you do need to discuss the patient's condition with a colleague. HIPAA laws and regulations are constantly changing, which makes following the procedures even more distressing. Learn more at: http://www.HIPAAexams.com

Most people don't think about the reality of becoming ill and needing to protect their income if they can't work and most of us don't have a back-up plan in place to support us during a long period of sickness. Research recently released from the independent Think Tank, Demos, has found that it's the average two income family with children, earning between £16,000 and £50,000 per annum, which is the demographic most at-risk of serious financial hardship if one wage earner is forced to stop working due to long-term illness or disability. People assume that the state will look after them, yet the support actually available is less than £5,000 a year. For someone on an average income of around £25,000, this would mean a massive 80% reduction in income. Whilst many of us have life insurance, we are actually three times more likely to fall seriously ill during our working lives than die while in employment. Yet just 1 in 10 people in the UK have their income protected in the event of a major illness, meaning millions of us are risking serious financial hardship for ourselves and our family if the worst was to happen. In this How To video, we hear from Kate, aged 35, who unexpectedly had to take long term sick leave last year and wasn't protected, while Jack McGarry, CEO of Income Protection provider Unum, and Nick Cosh, broker at PMI Health Group, look at the implications and discuss what you can do now to protect financially against sudden illness.

Camp Pendleton New Naval Hospital Safety Message Background of Camp Pendleton Replacement Hospital Project The replacement of Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton is the largest ARRA project within the Department of the Navy. The firm-fixed price design-build contract was awarded to Clark /McCarthy, a Joint Venture for $394M. With the inclusion of planned modifications for furnishings, fixtures and equipment and for land bank mitigation credits, the total contract amount is $451M. Project completion is scheduled for January 2014. Located on 70 acres near the Main Gate of Camp Pendleton, the new 500,000 sq-ft multilevel hospital will feature facilities to provide a variety of medical services for surgery, patient overnight stays, dental care, intensive care, and general medical and emergency care. Outpatient medical facilities, ancillary departments, primary and specialty care clinics, and support spaces are also included in the hospital. The project will include a central utilities plant, a 1,500-space multilevel parking structure, surface parking, and site development. The contract includes an unprecedented LEED Gold certification of the hospital building. The new facility will replace the existing naval hospital located in Building H-100 on Camp Pendleton. The new 60-bed hospital will address deficiencies in the existing facility including: inefficient space utilization; shift from inpatient-based care to an outpatient-based care delivery model; non-compliance with current ATFP code requirements; non-compliance with latest seismic code requirements for progressive collapse of a structure with inpatient occupancy. Through October 2011, more than $223 million in contracts (77% of all contract awards) have been awarded to small business enterprises. Service-disabled veteran-owned businesses have been awarded more than $157 million in contracts on the project. Clark/McCarthy is exceeding the Navy's original small business participation goals (45%) by more than $100 million. Navy Medicine West is the sponsor of the hospital representing the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, and NAVFAC Southwest is managing the project. Since April 2009, NAVFAC Southwest has awarded 107 ARRA projects with a total value of $814 million.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - 60% of the Time, It Works Every Time Scene: Champ (David Koechner) and Brian (Paul Rudd) try their best to seduce Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). BUY THE MOVIE: http://bit.ly/2hmVvQf Watch the best Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy scenes & clips: Anchorman Best Scenes playlist: http://j.mp/1xGvV74 FILM DESCRIPTION: Marking the directorial debut of Adam McKay, former head writer for Saturday Night Live and founder of the Upright Citizen's Brigade, Anchorman is set during the 1970s and stars Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, San Diego's top-rated news anchorman. While Burgundy is outwardly willing to adjust to the idea of females in the workplace -- even outside of secretarial positions -- he certainly doesn't want his own job challenged. Keeping that in mind, it's no wonder that the arrival of Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), an aspiring newswoman, is, in Ron's eyes, not the studio's most welcome addition. After Veronica pays her dues covering so-called female-oriented fluff pieces (think cat fashion shows and cooking segments), the ambitious Veronica sets her eyes on the news desk; more specifically, on Ron's seat behind it. Not unpredictably, Ron doesn't take the threat lightly, and it isn't long before the rival newscasters are engaged in a very personal battle of the sexes. Anchorman was co-written by Ferrell, and features supporting performances from David Koechner, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Tara Subkoff, and Maya Rudolph. CREDITS: TM & © Dreamworks (2004) Cast: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Judd Apatow Director: Adam McKay Producers: Judd Apatow, David B.

The Atomic Energy Commission collected data on the spread of radionuclides from the nuclear tests, and discovered that the radionuclides were circulating around the world.

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

Some further information on the pineapples: Mr POWELL (Glass House—LNP) (10.21 pm): On 19 October, just last week, Biosecurity Australia released a draft import risk analysis report for fresh decrowned pineapple fruit from Malaysia. The draft IRA summary statement declares— Biosecurity Australia proposes that the importation of fresh decrowned pineapple fruit to Australia from Malaysia be permitted subject to a range of quarantine conditions. The draft report identifies four pests that require quarantine measures. I suggest that such a proposition is flawed and dangerous and that the Queensland Minister for Agriculture, Food and Regional Economies needs to support the Australian pineapple producers. More importantly, he needs to support Queensland's pineapple producers, and he needs to stand up for the health and wellbeing not only of the industry but also of Queenslanders more broadly. Those four pests that Biosecurity Australia refer to are the Dysmicoccus grassii, Dysmicoccus neobrevipes or grey pineapple mealy bug, Planococcus minor or Pacific mealy bug, and Pseudococcus jackbeardsleyi or the Jack Beardsley mealy bug. Basically they are a range of exotic borers that have the potential to decimate local pineapple crops. How does Biosecurity Australia suggest we address this quarantine issue? Through a combination of pre-shipment or on arrival methyl bromide fumigation and an operational system to verify the status of the imported fruit. Can I suggest fumigation with methyl bromide will not sit well with Australian consumers? Methyl bromide is not registered in Australia for use on pineapples and there is worldwide concern with its use, particularly its link to the destruction of the ozone layer. It is a massive concern that importers could potentially be allowed to circumvent national chemical registration regulations by fumigating fruit offshore with this chemical. What would that do to our reputation? If we put methyl bromide fumigation aside for a moment, perhaps what is even more concerning is what is not in the draft IRA. In 2008 the Australian pineapple industry biosecurity plan listed the Erwinia chrysanthemi, now Dickeya, species as the most important of forbidden pathogens. The pathogen causes bacterial fruit and heart rot in pineapples, and the industry experts pointed out at the time quite clearly that it does not exist and still does not exist in the Australian pineapple industry. It does, however, exist in the Philippines, from which we already import fresh pineapples, and Malaysia, from which we are considering to import fresh pineapples. Despite regular scientific and industry advice, Biosecurity Australia has ignored the risk this pathogen poses to the industry. I am sorry, but as a member of an electorate that is home to 80 per cent of Queensland's fresh pineapple production, I am not willing to ignore that risk. I implore the Minister for Agriculture to petition his federal counterpart and Biosecurity Australia and reject this proposed import approval. I implore every Queenslander concerned at this serious biosecurity risk to send in their submission by the 19 December closing date.
