I don't think it can do that, it you are meaning
HE to He, etc.
I know the meaning is not
derogatory, any more than my grandmother was being derogatory when she said "colored people."  Certainly, all the countries you mention (Middle East, etc) can  be considered oriental, since the word just means of the east. ("We Three kings from Orient Are.")  But I have never heard anyone use the term "Oriental" to describe someone from Turkey, or Saudi Arabia, or any Caucasian person in the eastern hemisphere; only to people from the Far East (many Americans tend to muddle people from these countries into a group because of their similar physical characteristics).   At any rate, Asian is  the favored term today.   Oriental things (such as rugs) are a different story.   My cousin (age 54) still uses the word "Oriental" for people from the Far East...  she also gets Arabs and Indians mixed up.       oriental/occidental
ps CTA meaning to cover their a**.
I said he is the same on the inside, meaning,
he still is the most tender-hearted man I have ever known in my life, the same as 28 years ago when I married him. He knows that I firmly believe that his drinking is wrong and that it is killing him (which I don't want to happen), but, leaving him is not something I want to do (been there, done that). I choose to stay. Not everybody's situation is the same and, Biblically, I have absolutely no reason to leave him nor do I want to leave. I hate to see him killing himself this way and that is something that I pray about daily.
I was not meaning you directly at all
guess I was just trying to get across the point that in other parts of the states southerns are protrayed as such. I am white, my husband is black and my mixed daughter was an English major in college here in the south and an accountant now, She, along with me, shutter when we hear ebonics. Like where you live and where I live outsiders would probably not believe with all the diversity, huh?
IC status meaning

I worked 3 weeks for a company as IC status.  They wanted a schedule so I did one and then the work was not coming through so the third week was told not to do schedule; it did not look like the MD I was going to have would get into a routine.  I did the work at night or early morning.  Was told I had to work my schedule even if I had no work I had to be there in case it came in.  Does IC status not mean TAT and production but flexibility with schedule as long as you get the work done.  Also it went from 60 minutes to 120 and then at the time I finished the 100 minutes 85 more came through and it was like she expected me to do it right then.  I had 24 hours.  Also was called as soon as it uploaded at 4p.m. one day and was asked "ARE YOU TYPING".  It was not my scheduled time and it had only been uploaded about 30 minutes.  What is your take on this.  IC does not mean be harrassed if not an employee with benefits right.  No work for 3 days and then hounded as soon as it came in.  I am not there now because I voiced my opinion. 


IC meaning independent contractor?
As far as I know...no...for independent contractor, they do not have to pay any benefits or even take out SS, so I would think it would be MORE not less for IC. Someone correct me if I am wrong.
I am not meaning to start a firestorm, but can anybody SM

explain this? I'm not trying to get banned, but every other site on the net survives just fine and there is no such restriction on them.

Maybe I'm dense, but I can't even make up a sensible reason for it.

It sounds to me like this MTSO needs to look up the meaning of IC. sm
From your description, you have been more than understanding.  We set our hours and we work them, but are not sitting here every time something is needed.  I have worked 3 IC jobs (simultaneously) in the last 1-1/2 years, and can tell you there are wonderful companies out there that are very considerate.  You don't need this one.
Are y'all meaning Sylcount?
If you need an Expander too, you can get Instant Text, which has counting, invoicing, and reporting built in. :-)
Again, you've missed the meaning.

The interpretation is this: Money will speak louder than just writing a letter. Speak financially. Get it now?

'Plenty' meaning - the 6 or 7 people who

The sclerae (plural) are injected, meaning SM
Blood vessels are visible.
I mean comeback using long words nobody knows the meaning of, he-he nm
I honestly wasnt meaning to be implying your sil was gay.. I just
HAHAHA - meaning fish don't use bikes....nm
Isn't it an "at will" relationship, meaning that no cause is needed at all?
No, that's baloney. Study-up on meaning of 'cult'.
Previous reports, meaning another MTs work?
Lanier is proprietary meaning it will only work
with a Lanier system and you cannot use a C-Phone or DVI workstation to access a Lanier digital system.  You won't be able to use it with a DVI system or Dictaphone.  However, if memory serves, you should be able to use a Dictaphone C-phone or DVI workstation interchangeably with most other digital dictation systems and Dictaphone.
I'm glad you brought this up. I've been meaning to

maybe "black and white" chars. (meaning spaces
It may depend on what format the files are in, meaning you may have to dink around with it. But it
Does anybody understand the meaning of EmErGeNcY room anymore?

I cannot understand why I type SO many ERs with trivial chief complaints such as:

sore throat - cough - pimple - splinter - blister - farted - (okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a little, but COME ON people!)

The most recent ccx.....Can I take a laxative? Not constipated, just needs to know if she can take a laxative along with her hypertension med. Thought she better go to the ER to ask.

Why are these people allowed to be such a waste of ER resources?

Just a pet peeve....wondering if anyone agrees with me.....perhaps someone else who has spent hours in an ER waiting room for something or other.


isn't off peak meaning night/weekend and therefore would not count toward the 450? nm
well time to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas...
and please dont get me wrong... i know these times are hard for everyone and i hope your work picks up or you find a job that helps... but regarding the holidays... so many of us (myself included) have made this a buy buy buy holiday. I'm been so upset this year because I have bought barely ANY gifts but I simply cannot afford them. So then I realized, it is time for family and togetherness, as generic as that sounds... life is short... it's not about "things" it's about people. And I'm not super religious, but this is a good video below.
good luck on work!
Might be meaning the 3 boxes left upper corner??
the 3 little square boxed in the right hand corner, see them. The middle one makes a bigger screen. Unclick it and it goes back to regular size. This this what you meant.
Well, grammar/punctuation can dramatically alter meaning, so it IS important. nm
Should just post all their open positions in one post and only be allowed to post one of those a day

Ignore my post. I finally found the post on how to do this. nm
Yes, I tried to post same last night about 10 times, and it won't let me post.
I used to breed lab puppies (please no activist flames)! I had a champion female white Canadian lab, and people would be on a list for years if by chance I bred her, which I did twice, and so that I could continue her line.  Anyhow, she's my sweet Skye who passed away 2 months ago? At any rate, we had the same problems with kids in the "hood" who wanted to come over and play once the puppies were old enough to be exercised daily and played with.  At first I thought, how cute, right? Puppies and little kids - what better picture! Well, the majority of kids were adorable, but there were always 1 or 2 sick ones who would smack the pups, smash and hold their heads in the dirt (a real common thing, but I don't know why - psychiatrist anyone).  At any rate, I finally had to ban the whole group due to the 1 or 2 creeps, had to call the police, the whole 9 yards, and that's EXACTLY what the police officer told me - next thing is there will be poison meat or a donut in the yard. He told me to always go out and patrol my yard, especially alone the fence line every day before I let the dogs out, particularly at night. I went out with a flashlight.  It was about a month later, but sure enough - poison meat.  Because there were so many kids involved, we obviously couldn't pin point the exact family, but the police went and read the riot act to them all. It would stop and not happen again for a year or so, but every now and again we would find something. My dogs were NEVER out and barking, so it was nothing like that - it was just over the puppies and the cruel kids.... Not trying to freak you, but that's the way these kids and their families are.  You can really judge someone's character by ill treatment of a PUPPY, of all things. And the parents??  They sound whacked.  Please be careful.

Excellent post! I copied this post and...

what mean post made you post your post
Which mean post was the straw that broke the poster's back.
Yes, she had post partum depression AND post partum psychosis. I posted on this a while back, and
it explained the two. The psychosis actually develops after the depression. Scary stuff.

Thank you for your post
You posted it like it is.  What about this young boys parents??  What was he doing out at 2-3 in the morning??  What kind of parent would allow that??  No where have these posters who are blaming the victim even tried to put blame on this boy.  Amazing.  I hate to say it but the old cliche is true.  very few women stand together or help each other, the claws come out and they attack each other.  This young boy has told several different accounts of what happened that night.  My take is that they put a date rape drug in her drink, as some of her friends said she was acting strangely.
