In Reply to: ESLs -- How do they understand - Blondee

Hey Blondee,


What language did you're folks speak before they came here to the great melting pot?....Did they come through Ellis Island, Angel Island, on the Mayflower or in the bottom of a ship in shackles...We're all immigrants....unless, of course, you're a Native American or Inuit.


I speak a few languages and had gotten called outta my office at any given time to translate in the ER or OR. If it helped to save someone's life and/or calm a family's nerves, that was cool with me.


It would be nice if everyone just spoke the king's English. 




Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


Are we "SLOW LEARNERS" or what?


Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN


"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."


Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Your post will probably get moved to the Gab Board. We
What is the Main Board for? All general topics seem to get moved to the new gab board.
Wonder why it was moved to the company board
Thank you. I moved it to this Main board. (nm)
Moved to main board for more to see...sm
We are not endorsing nor advertising this product. This post was on the New MT/Student board and is a nice discount for all of our MTStars posters, so I thought I'd bring it out for everyone to see.

Thank you Danny!
When a post is moved to the --sm
appropriate board, why are the reply/replies not also moved? Researched the post about an angle, found it, and posted it.  When it was moved to the word board, my reply was not included. 
We have not moved this topic to the Company board. Perhaps you posted it
there initially thinking it was the Main board.
They moved the post, but not the replies!

Okay, that's frustrating.  Anyhoo, the regs for setting up corporations vary from state to state and it also varies as to what kind of corporation you can set up.

I set up an LLC for something and I used legalzoom.com.  It cost a couple hundred bucks, but it was well worth it for me.  I got all the completed paperwork back in about 6 weeks or so and I didn't have to worry whether I had dotted and crossed everything that needed dotted and crossed.

If you're in or near your state capital you can go to the Secretary of State's office and they can probably help you as well.

Moved from Sticky Post. Christmas IS celebrated on this site

Moved from Sticky post...

Christmas IS celebrated on this website. If you do not celebrate Christmas, that is your prerogative.  However, if posts celebrating Christmas offends you, you might consider another site as we celebrate Christmas on this website and will do so every single year.  As the owner of this website, I am proud to say MERRY CHRISTMAS in celebration of Christ's birth.  I will not fall in line with others who are being politically correct and I do not expect others who celebrate Christmas to be forced to conform either.  Since over 95% of Americans celebrate Christmas, I do not see what the big deal is anyway.  For those who do not celebrate Christmas, I offer respect for whatever you do celebrate though I may not agree with your belief system.  In turn, I also would hope that you would respect what I celebrate.

Merry Christmas,

Sheri Steadman

And its gonna kill you to post on the Company board rather than the main board?

cherrypicking co-worker issue (meant to post it on this board instead of MQ board) sm...

I need opinions please...I work on a very small account with just a handful of ladies.  Because of the nature of the software (trying not to get too specific here) we can see who is working online and what reports they are working on in real-time...

We have one cherrypicker on the account.  Instead of using FIFO method, she retrieves the reports by author ID - usually picking the better dictators of course.  She knows I busted her and she did admit to it in on our work e-mail (not too bright) which I am saving just in case she gets out of hand - so far I'm still able to make money since really most of the dictators aren't bad. 

But every night it's starting to wear on me since she's screwing up turnaround time.  I don't really want to cause a big uproar being that it is such a small account and I need to work with her almost every night usually one on one.

What would you all do?  I want to handle this as delicate and professional as possible because we can't really afford to lose anyone on this account.  In other words, I refuse to stoop to her level by cherrypicking right back.

My boss has asked me several times why so-and-so does so much more than I do...I just bite my lip at that point but one of these days I think I might explode and just open up a can of worms....

Post belongs on Ask the Dr. board. See that board. Thread locked.

See post on Word board. NM
Sorry, will re-post this on MedQ board.
I'd like one, too! I answered your post on the other board.
I'm sure they'll need an experienced technician to work at home, though. Just like any other job, they don't hire newbies without experience to work at home right away. It's better to learn in-house from experienced people than to try to go it alone. You can't troubleshoot over the phone and fix someone's computer if you've never actually done it in real life. College merely lays the foundation, it doesn't make you an expert in the field.

I've been trying to find an at-home tech job for over 10 years now. It's not easy. Too much competition out there with all the youngsters and Y2K layoffs. Totally saturated market with much lower wages than 10 years ago. People generally don't quit at-home tech jobs because they're hard to come by.

Is there a TV board or are you allowed to post
Help please, word board won't let me post...sm
a question and webmaster emails are not going through, so...   has anyone heard of  s/l "obtrex, optrex" TVT?  "Patient is post obtrex TVT." 
Post a resume board?
Wasn't there a "post a resume" board? I am not seeing it.  Quit my other job for full time and it is not even half time.  Going broke here.
There was a post on job board this morning
Post on prayer board ???

Is that for real? Is it someone here or was that a fwd that was posted? A few things jumped out at me as being inconsistent with the situation presented.


You should probably post this on the Company Board
Thank you for an excellent post. I wish we had our own board. nm
Read your post on the other board....
It discussed not having health insurance any more, not being an employee, having 2 IC jobs, etc. You speak of this as the CURRENT/FUTURE situation, not in the past. I know the subject of Keystrokes not hiring ICs has been addressed many times on this board.

I don't mean to make you defensive, but you posted pretty much 2 separate messages about a single job and they give conflicting information. I'm just confused.
But there is a link on that board to post a resume and you
can post it there.  Job seekers board is only for companies to post about positions. 
What EXACTLY are we ALLOWED to post on the MAIN board?
Just about every other post has been saying post this on this board or that board....well what goes here?
New board format...where do I post need for a derm job? sm
Haven't been here for awhile and notice there aren't any postings on the main board from people seeking work.  I know the job seeker's board is just for people looking for transcription help.  Where do I post a note asking if anyone knows of any PT derm work available?  Thanks for your help...
Are we not allowed to post jokes on the board now?
It was a simple question, actually an oxymoron, "a casket coming with a lifetime warranty?" 
Please post MQ topics on the Medquist board.
They have a post on the company board about benefits, etc. sm
I do ortho and love Keystrokes. I know that they are known for radiology, but I have plenty of work, a GREAT manager and a steady paycheck. My sister and daughter also work for Keystrokes and they are clinic and hospital work. They are both happy as well.
There is a whole post about that on the MTNews board on this site.
I believe a post like this belongs on the Company Board anyway.
