It happens with all groups, everywhere, anytime…
this post was like if you let your children go to daycare, see what happens. The world has become so evil that it just does not apply to if you have your children in day care. Remember about the mother in Texas, stay at home, who drowned her 5 children at 1 time. Beautiful children and yet a mother no less. You cannot just say not on my watch. That is what I was speaking about. I think lots of people have their heads in the sand thinking just home front is safe and secure.
They are 2 private groups. SM
What exactly do you want to sue them for?  Your post makes no sense.
was absolutely evident by the age groups there..nm
Favorite Artists/Groups
I love Rob Thomas, Maroon 5, Constantine Maroulis (AI season 5), Barry Manilow (don't laugh now), Phil Collins, Elton John and a lot of the AI gang. In fact, I'm off now to see them in Rochester.
Who R your fave music artists/groups?
I looove Joni Mitchell, Karla Bonoff, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Dixie Chicks, Elton John, Beatles, Eminem...
Thicken your skin. Other groups are making
Its just human nature.
My kids hated organized sports and groups. They

are both social, happy kids, but enjoy spending their spare time with Lego's, pets and especially reading. My 5th grader reads at an 11th grade reading level and my freshman reads well beyond college level. Both enjoy school very much and are on the Challenge tracks, A's and B's. But I think they have learned how to entertain themselves and enjoy a slower pace because we don't have a T.V. Definitely gears down the speed of life.

this isn't a religious discussion...sm
I didn't ask for *religious* advice, I simply asked for opinions...that's not religious...I know what God thinks about this subject...
i had 2 docs off for the religious holiday. nm
Um, if he were all that religious, he wouldn't be abusing you sm
so NO, switching religions isn't going to stop abuse.

And what do you BELIEVE religiously? IMO, religion isn't meant to be handed down like the family china. Religion is a way of life and a system of belief and worship. I don't understand when somebody says they'd change just like that, as if it were akin to changing jobs or changing the model of car you drive.
Thx, not religious at all, but thanks for the good wishes! sm
I know it was meant well. Good wishes to all here. Peace.
BBQ, slaw, cornbread, ham, casseroles, lots of veggies, chicken pastry, lots of desserts!! BIG fami
I just think that's a silly reason to not like someone - their religious faith. sm
I don't understand this at all. If we were to go by someone's values, we wouldn't like any of the bedhoppers in Hollywood. It seems to me that that would be the true criteria for deciding whether you like someone or not - not their religion.
religious reasons and not wanting to live together in sin
What religious holiday was yesterday in which one could not work???

He said his religion was celebratting a special day, yom kippur?  ramadan?  Anyone know?  I have never heard of a week day religious holiday when one could not work.

I might use that excuse.


All religious topics go on the Religion board. (SM)
Stop now with this or I will delete the whole thread.

All the religious talk in her post and on 'her' -
(doubt it) website definitely raises a red flag. Putting that stuff into sales spiels seems to be a pretty good gimmick for realin' in the suckers.
Lots of inexpensive decorations at Big Lots. Had a party last year.
I'm no sheep, heck, I'm not even religious. But I have grasped the concept of what a lie is.
Please post religious discussion on the Religion board.
I'm not going to remove this thread but ask that religious discussion be moved
to the Religion boards.
LOTS and LOTS of video tapes and DVDs.
30 hours divided by four days equals seven-hour days. Most of us have to work pretty much every day
Working 6/hour days, 5 days/week I make
$42,000.00, but the work is there to make more if I want to.  I'm in the southeast. 
2000 low days, 4000 busy days
Did 43,000 lines last month.   6 doctors. 
You can "make a living" if you work 16-hr days, 7 days
and if you rarely buy anything but food and the barest essentials in clothing. My balancing act is so precarious that all it'll take is one of life's little disasters (rent increase, sick pet, major car repair) to pull the rug out from under me. Not a good feeling at all.
Owned for years
It is possible to own a home and I have owned 4 in the past 8 years. What I would do if your not sure (its advice my dad gave me many years ago) is try to buy something that would have payments in the range that you would have to pay if you paid rent. Then you know you can afford it. Either way, you have to live somewhere, whether it be renting or buying. Then once you find it easy to make those payments in a few years, you can sell and buy something a little bigger and nicer. Just a little advice that has helped me in the past. Hope it helps!
No. Owned by a woman.
Is that still Indian owned by Jay?
I never knew who owned it before all this went down.
Have you ever owned a laptop?
The single biggest selling feature of a laptop is that they are...wait for it...portable. So much the same way I don't leave any valuable laying on the table when I go to the bathroom, my very portable laptop goes in with me. When I am in what I feel a safe, secure, environment to leave it at the table/desk, I time it so I am not in the middle of a report and close the lid, thereby requiring the password to get back into it. It does not require a degree in IT to take safety precautions.
MDI-Florida is owned by Transcend....sm
but is run as a separate company.    MDI-MD is a separate company not owned by Transcend.
nope - OWNED BY FRANCE AND....sm
American Hospital in Paris is owned and run by the French...........they named it when they were still liking us.........*LOL*
MT Co owned by Hospital corp.?

How many MT companies are owned by hospital corporations or the hospital corp have a piece of MT companies?  I ask this because some hospitals are only allowed to use certain MT companies.   Is this a way of keeping wages down and/or them getting more $?  Isn't there some kind of rule where doctors can't refer patient to a facility that they have part ownership of. Shouldn't this apply also?

Just wondering

ForuMatrix is owned by MTStars. (SM)

If you have complaints about ForuMatrix or about how MTStars is operating, etc., address them via e-mail to the Administrator (admin@mtstars.com) or myself (goldbird@mtstars.com).

Thank you,



Yes, it is still owned by Jay. Is this just for information or to goad that
USATasp is 100% US owned & operated.
Do you use a personally owned VR or is it with the company?? sm
Would like to know what VR programs are good for personal purchase. 
Indian owned companies... sm
Have you ever worked for one? I have. All the easy work goes to India. The junk comes to the US-based MTs. I worked there for 2 years until I could take no more. Should have walked out on training. If you want an Indian-based company so badly, go for it. I can tell you first hand, though, you will eventually regret it. No offense intended, but I have lived it and will NEVER work for an Indian-owned company again, even if I have to leave transcription and go back to the office, God forbid!
I do have a 2nd job with US owned co. that I love. Foreign
We are a small, family-owned

company with all MTs and most management being ICs.  There are only a handful of people in management and there are no bonuses for them.  I personally work here because it's an amazing place to work - nothing else.  We'd simply like to have a small reward for quarterly reviews to encourage accuracy.  That's it.  No hidden agenda or big, mean corporate people. 

Thanks for your response, though!

That's right, not American owned anymore.

No it hasn't. It's still owned by Ahmed

The money is owned no matter what you are
the question was whether you are employee or IC as very different approaches would be made to recover $$
550-650 lph on average. Some days more, some days less. It all depends. nm
How? By working 12-hr days 7 days/week?
I would worry about them on any puter owned by a company
The MEDIA is owned by 5 mega corporations
and they have an agenda almost if not more devious than certain politicians...

Remember the MEDIA is owned by FOR-PROFIT corporations. Corporations like this have a LEGAL responsibility to make as much money as possible for shareholders. What does that mean? It means they choose sensational garbage over substance to "report" - and in the case of this so-called war, they BENEFIT the reads PROFIT directly and indirectly, so they purposely censor the information that gets in the way of true public awareness.

If ANYone sincerely believes the media is our friend, they have not done their homework. Don't take my word for it: Google "who owns the media" and see any number of studies showing WHICH corporations own the major news corporation.

GE make "bring good things to life" BUT they ALSO make bombs (WMD) - AND they own NBC. Connect the dots yourself, and consider asking your reps in Congress for legislation to clean up the media.

Yes, there are crack reporters who are DYING to report the truth, but they are EDITED out by their supervisors who follow the agenda of the corporate bosses.

The facts are out there if you look for them.
Yes, not only are they Indian owned & offshore, they are horribly rude.
I had the worst experience when a male worker verbally attacked me in a very chauvenistic manner. 
Nope, my computer is owned by the hospital I work for, and does not even
