Did anyone hear the full story on the news about...sm
using your bank card as credit instead of debit and being charged $20-50 extra.   I just keep catching the tail end of the report but really want to know if I heard it right??
It is great to hear good news!

Good for you!! It is so nice to hear a positive post.

I do not suppose you would care to share your new company?

So glad to hear your good news!!!! Eat a candy bar anyway :-) no message
I love hearing good news! Congrats to you BOTH! NM
I for one - would love to hear it!!!
You must love to hear about them.

Are you a CMT?  All of the CMTs are AHDI lovers and the rest of us know why AHDI changed their name to include the global MT, and so what?  They are entitled to do so.  It's their organization.  How about practice what you preach?  If you don't like what AHDI is doing, then start your own organization yourself!  I, quite frankly, am tired of hearing the same old story.  It's old, get over it already. 

P/S:  I'm entitled to my opinion and I'm allowed to post just like you as long as I follow the rules, so why brush me aside?  If anyone wants information from AHDI, they can e-mail them just like this original poster and see the response they get. 

Would love to hear from MTs who worked for MDS in NJ
Hello All,
I would love to get in touch with MT's who worked for MDS in NJ - just to say hello and see how you guys are doing.

Would love to hear your answers on this...

I'm trying to weigh all my options, getting ready to leave a company and go out seeking my own accts.  In your opinion, what are the benefits of a physician's office hiring an IC versus going through the big companies where they have more than 1 person in QA and more sets of eyes doing the "editing"?  ARE there benefits??  Don't they basically pay the same rate to a company that they would pay to an individual?  Isn't that how MTs working for companies end up making so much less, because there is the "middle man"?  Thanks in advance for your input on this!!

I would love to hear from you too if you dont mind...
congratulations on finding the right fit! if you wouldn't mind i would like an email too with suggestions and the name of who you found such happiness with..im pulling out my hair now and want to find some peace as well :)brandi_0320@yahoo.com
So, do you like it? I"m just getting ready to switch over and I would love to hear something pos
Same boat, would love to hear responses (nm)
Hate to hear that love Christmas Story!
just checked i-mail. no news. how did you get your news?

News flash..Don't know where you get your news, but the economy is doing very well.
My theory is no news is good news. (sm)
If there is really a problem with your transcription, then I would not worry about it. They will get to you if you screw up.

As far as policies and procedures, look in your manual. I am sure they gave you info for all of that stuff. JMO.
I have good news and bad news 4U...
The good news is on Saturday, July 1 many of your least favorite residents will be "graduating." The bad news is that on the same day you'll be getting a virtual box of candy with brand new residents who have no clue how to dictate! RU excited?? ARGHHHH!!!!
Brain dead today - or is it hear hear? I'm going to bed.
Marry me?! :) Seriously...hear, hear. Good post. - nm
Hear, hear! I agree with Dakota - sm
The MTSO should be giving feedback to the hospital/doctors who slur, speak too rapidly, etc. They need to pull up their socks! And there's no reason why these doctors shouldn't be given an outline of what is expected from them when they dictate, such as cell phones, chewing food, candy, gum, etc.
love, love, love the show. hate american idol. this show is for real.
the only reason i entertained watching it was because of mark burnett and as usual he has such genious casting and editing. btw, don't know who anything about "metal" music but these performers make me like it. love marty and jd as performers. HATE JESSICA. susie is so nice and so emotional. it seems they all support each other and enjoy each others skills. regarding ty and bob marley, ty was excellent but he also lucked out on the song! bob marley was genious too and his music is very easy to listen to. i don't like 3/4 of what the others are given to sing but their performances make me love the music. dave navarro shines on this show, very gracious for the most part and letting the contestants down easy when they have to leave. he was great last night with brandon (?). sweet, sweet show. i am so impressed with everyone involved.
Yep that's it, 4000. Love, love love the zoom
But I feel like a dork typing...every time I try to type But it is coming out as Nut!
I love it too - love doing my nails 5 hours a day and staying awake

Love NOT getting paid while sitting doing my nails too.  It's a real turn on.

I tell all my friends to try it -- sit in front of your computer while you have no money to pay your rent and instead do your nails, you get a real buzz down in the pit of your stomach.


Also LOVE LOVE ESCRIPTION and make good money but...
Can I ask how you sit there for 8 hours. Lately, I'm having a motivation problem. When I focus, I can rack up the lines, but lately, I get so easily distracted. My mind wanders and I struggle to get my lines. Any tips on how you stay productive who do you work for?? I work for Transcend.
WOW, that is news. Thanks. nm
old news
This same type of e-mail has been passed around for years. It will not work. Check it out on snopes.com.
Very sad news

As hard as it is, you did the kindest thing you could.  Why is it that cats want to curl up on your foot that is running the foot pedal?  Or on top of your mouse?  Or in front of your monitor?

You have my sympathy.  Cats are people too!  Sometimes my cat seems to be the only one who understands me....at least the only one who listens.


Just saw that on the news!
where on fox news?
can't find it. can you post the link? I heard "rumors" that he has already received several offers..everything from being a popular band's new lead singer to solo recording deals. I hope to hear more from him soon. I really enjoyed his perfomances.
This is old news. sm
I can't even remember the name right now (not memorable anyway), but as I recall "Medical Transcripton" no longer appear in the name.  Someone please correct me if I am wrong. 
Could be bad news
If you have been out of work for 9-10 months for the past couple of year you might not be eligible for unemployment as you have to work so much in the past 5 quartes - 2005 to 2006 to be eligible.  And if you did not make much, then your benefit will be very little and yout IC could set off that.  You can look a lot of this up on your state's page.   They usually list what qualifies for it and what does not.  But good luck.  We all need help at one time or another and that is what it is there for.  I am more for you getting unemployment than an illegal coming into the states and having a surgery that I could not afford and we as tax payers pay for it.  Know that opens up another bucker of worms but that is my feeling. 
bad news ....

I was quite excited about your suggestion.  I talked with my daughter - that is out of my son's area of expertise. She works with software. She said it would have to be piggy backed onto the transcription software. I don't think companies would allow that.  I also thought about having a little gold coin dropping into a bucket on the screen after every line but she said same thing, piggy back. Oh well, back to my footpedal idea.


FOX has *nothing* to do with NEWS nm
no message (much like FOX, except for their messages of hate and intolerance).
that is old news - nothing new -
Philips is interested in selling their holdings in MQ.  Nothing has been announced further.  No mention of impending or imminent sale but we know the possibility exists.
No, that doesn't necessarily mean bad news for you. It could just be that they are going to make a decision from the people they've already interviewed and are no longer accepting apps for the position. It could also mean that the post expired. Relax.  If you get it, you get it.  If not, it wasn't meant for you so keep moving.
some time ago on the news...

natalee's mother had a "meeting" with the mother of one of the accused. it was after they had that discussion that natalee's mother started saying they were guilty. who knows what was discussed between the two moms, but it surely started something.

I've been watching the news but
haven't heard if anyone is claiming responsibility?  On a different note, I was just telling a friend yesterday that before 9-11 I heard that the biggest thing on the news was shark attacks.   Hoped it wasn't an omen.
I just assumed it was old news
I was aware of the other lawsuits, 4 in all I think. 
Go to CNN.com for all of your news updates.
I also get my local newspaper online free.  Why pay and kill trees when the highlights are all on the internet?
Watching the news
My heart goes out to those who are homeless, jobless, lost everything in their lives, many including loved ones.  I have come to appreciate my family, job and home so much in the last few days.  I stopped to get gas today, only needed 1/2 tank and it ended up costing $25, went up 35 cents since yesterday.  Somehow this is very scary, nearly everything we have comes through the trucking industry.  The ramifications of this will be far reaching, everything will go up......well, everything but an MTs pay, but hey, I have a job and I don't need to get in my car to do it. 
Don't believe the news media (sm)

You are so right.  Everything is going up but our wages and it's happening all over.  It is time for everyone to get their finances in order.  We are all going to have to tighten our belts and get our finances in order and get rid of credit cards! 

According to who...Faux News?

Great news!!! (sm)
Have another question for you...just curious here...am I talking to Sandy Hames who used to work for YOG???  This is JoAnn (formerly Volgstadt)...aka Hummingbird from the Friendship Board.  If the vibe I'm getting is wrong, then disregard what I just said ;-) 
Did you see the news tonight?

Hundreds of children were killed, thousands and thousands have died in total they say. I am the mother of three children and watching those pictures on TV of those little lives lost is very disturbing, extremely saddening, and is a very emotional thing to watch or to try to even understand the magnitude of such losses for everyone involved or to make any sense of it all.

If you, by reading my post, misunderstood my post, I wholeheartedly appologize. It was not my intention to have a "hidden agenda" in my post. It was merely a question.

Commie news?
Well my dear, it was different back in the 50s, obviously which you know nothing about. The world is a different place today and yes my parents followed the Catholic region to a T not that I agree it. I didn't say they couldn't provide, they provided 7 kids with good educations and values (even though mine may be questioned on here, which I don't mind), and at the time when my dad was working his tail off for John Deere, those people in those days in the 20s did not believe in putting their money in stocks because of the year of 1929 if you even know what happened in that year. We did live in a house that my parents bought. I did not say we were not provided for, I said we had everything we needed, nothing more. Well you must certainly be naive to think that Mr. Bush is a good president. Have you lost any people/friends in a war that was uncalled for. Talk to a Viet Nam Vet and see what they have to say. I have 3 brothers who all served our country. I don't know where you live, but go to the Walter Reed Hospital and see the men there. You might get an education. Bush lies to us and if you can't see it, you better take your blinders off. I hope you don't have kids old enough to have to serve in a war. God help you if you do.
Good news - thanks
They just did a breaking news bit on it..
they started saying 8yr old..now claiming it's a 15yr old that was shot and taken to the hospital.  I imagine alot of details will be sketchy until they have more time.  Again...God bless to all of you
Rudd, do you have any news yet? nm
News flash everybody!! - sm
After a nasty argument with ex H over his lack of interest in our daughter for the past 15 years, he informs me that I won't have a job in 3 years due to voice recognition taking over.  Yikes, where do I turn now?  And, since she will be 18 then, he is done financially.  Well, jeeze, since he hasn't been there emotionally for the past 15 years, he might as well stop paying his lousy $150/month.  I'm ticked off and laughing at the same time.  Just venting over the fact that ex idiot is taking pleasure in the thought that he thinks he knows something I don't know.    Obviously he has been doing some reasearch or how would he even know what voice recognition is?  Please excuse my very angry rant! I'm going to take a deep breath and try to forget the whole ugly conversation. 
News flash....
Why listen to the rantings of a man who thinks his own daughter is only worth $37.50 a week?

He may or may not research, but there is enough talk about Voice Recognition on TV and radio talk shows that he may have heard it mentioned there.

Please don't let his pettiness ruin your peace of mind.
Melatonin on the News

I'm really glad that melatonin is working for you. However, there was something on the news last night that studies have shown that melatonin is of no use in treating insomnia.

But, whatever works for you.....that's great.

Good news! sm
She wrote back about 2:30 and agreed to 8 CPL. Very happy. I know it's hard out there, as I was an MTSO. Very happy she could do it.
