Thanks. I found information on web site.
I found a site for this information
You should check the tax information board--sm
accessible on the gab board site near the top. From my experience as an IC, if this is your first year doing any IC work, I do not believe that you need to do the estimated tax thing, but you still must report any income over, I believe, $400 for the first year on your income tax returns. You should do the estimated tax filings beginning with your second year, though. This would be for your IC job only. Check the tax board though, as there is usually some pretty good info on their.
Try this site - it's full of useful information! Good luck!
Did you check the web site? I think the CEO won.

Just kidding.

Unless you want to work on site, that is. If so, check Manpower and the newspapers for starters. nm
That is only the half of it...check out this site for a more realistic view of the future of med rec

We have not much to fear from overseas, in my opinion, compared to the technology being created every day to reach the goal of the 'standardized text' paperless record (EHR - electronic health record).

No more 'free text' or dictation in the future.

Same for billing/coding, which will be done automatically with mobile point-of-care hand-held PCs.

Certainly, there will still be editors, but I can not get any solid information as to how this technology will affect MTs. Will be still be needed, if so, in what capacity.

I keep hearing we should be open to being trained in the new technologies that are coming, but hey, what ARE they, and who will train us?

The only thing AAMT seems to be suggesting/promoting, is (what will make them a lot of money) for certifying MTs...what good is that going to do us?

I would gladly train and learn new technology so I can 'stay in the game,' but how, what, where, who pays, when? What will it be, what do I have to do?

I have E'd several people, including Ms. Tessier herself, and have not gotten any kind of response, period.

Heck with being certified, tell me how I can keep my job for the next decade before I can retire and MT as we know it is extinct!

My apologies up-front for any typos - I am not 'on the clock' so-to-speak...thanks.

Not MT related, but pet dog related. See message.
I have a 5 year old Maltese dog who has always been a great sleeper at night. He has always slept on my bed next to me and never budged all night. Last week he started to wake up shivering and panting in the early morning and could not settle back down and would just jump off the bed and go off somewhere else to sleep. Now he starts this shivering and panting as soon as the light goes off in the bedroom but instead of jumping off and going off on his own, he just stays there next to me and keeps sivering and panting and is unable to fall asleep. He's perfectly normal otherwise during the day and sleeps fine during the day, behaves normally and is eating and drinking normally. I called the vet and she thought he was having nightmares. But I'm not so sure. Last night when I went to bed and the light was on for about 15 minutes he was quiet and comfortable lying next to me. As soon as the light went off he started the shivering and the panting and could not go to sleep. Anywone gone throught this before? Should I be worried about his health?
Several companies still train on site. In fact, we are piloting an on-site training sm
program, where everyone would come in to the Keystrokes office to train for 1 or 2 weeks. We have a large training room and feel that this may be a way to cover all aspects of an account, be right there to answer questions as they come up and have one-on-one contact.

It will be optional at this point and may not be more effective as remote training, but some people have expressed that they miss the training that you get when you start at a hospital.

We are trying to bridge that gap between working in-house somewhere and working at home.

It may seem out-dated in many ways, but sometimes going back to basics is a good step to take!
I have noticed sometimes I will try to get into a web site and that site will freeze up and I dont

know if I have too many screens opened up and minimized or what. I tried to open a website sent by email and froze up the email screen. Not sure what I am doing.

Check at a local nursery/garden center for varieties that are bred for your area, then check online
Check the connections from where the cable originates to wear it comes into the house. Also check t
had a similar issue with TWC and they had done some upgrades and the modem I had was no longer compatible.  The tech knew what the problem was the minute he saw the modem, only it took me about 3 months and threatening to cancel for them to get out here. 
Not MT-related (sorry).

Anyone know the official name for crime scene tape that is used by just ordinary people to rope areas off?  It says something else besides crime scene.  Need to buy some and trying to do a search at different stores, but you can imagine what I'm finding when I search for tape.


Not MT related but --
What would you do?  I have a home I am selling thru a realtor.  This realtor listed the house and has personally shown in to no one (4+ weeks).  I have had people see the house thru the MLS, but I had to be here to show them because she was always busy or could not make it.  She had an open house last week, I live on a street that is about 3 blocks long, dead end at both ends, about 2 blocks off a main street - there were no signs posted at the main intersection, none at the next corner, directing them to the house - she put 1 sign up, in my front yard - needless to say no one showed up (she was also 20 minutes late for the open house).  She has also forgotten to call me when she makes an appt and I was taken totally by surprise when the possible buyer showed up at my door.  Maybe I am wrong but I don't think she is doing her job - any ideas or suggestions, am thinking about cancelling her contract already  (will cost me $250) because I feel I am doing everything myself and also because houses in this area usually sell within 2-3 weeks of going on the market.  Any suggestions or ideas?  Thanks.
are we related?! lol
i have a SIL exactly like that!!  
non-MT related but
do cats go off to die alone? I had a cat which has disappeared. It's been about 2 weeks now since I've seen him. He did used to drink out of the toilet (gross, I know) and I'm wondering if this made him sick. Otherwise he seemed okay. Just wondering if this has happened to any of you.
Just MT-related?

My divorce is final!!!!! :)

No brainer here. Stop payment on first check before you issue 2nd check.
What is up with you? Are you related to Frank?

Frank knows that.  What a sourpus.

Can't be related to MQ lawsuit

My ipay statement said is was for a DEP adjustment, but the majority of the lines in question were done on the various old platforms, Medwrite, Enterprise, etc...remember it goes back to 1998.

I got the ipay notice but no check or letter yet.  I have direct deposit but nothing in there either

Not MT related, but need advice.

Is it inappropriate to wear black to a wedding? 

If so, what is appropriate? 

Not MT-related but I must vent

When a hurricane is headed toward a given vicinity, I thought the drill was have plenty of water and food for at least 3 days for each person in the home.  You'd think Floridians would know this better than anyone.  I'm a Floridian myself.  Fortunately my area was not affected by Wilma, but guess what?  I STILL have supplies stocked.  I LIVE IN FLORIDA for heaven's sake!

As soon as the wind let up, people were forming lines... and they expected water and ice to magically appear on every street corner.

Granted, the elderly and poor may not be as equipped to prepare like the able-bodied and financially secure, but these are the ones and the ONLY ones who should have been needing help at this early stage.  Did you see the caliber of cars in those lines?  Many were new, nice, and expensive.  No excuse.  I'm sorry.

It's bad enough that many are going to go without power for weeks.  Wouldn't it have nice been if local, state, and federal governments had a couple days to position themselves in an organized manner?  Or be able to provide for the poor and elderly in a more expidient manner rather than servicing a gaggle of people? This would have been hard even under the best conditions, but at least possible had more citizens cooperated by heeding recommendations to be prepared.

Thanks for letting me vent...

Maybe not related to homeschooling, but...
whatever happend to kids just going outside to PLAY???  I don't think these structured lessons and sports are quite the same thing.  Kids are so micro managed anymore that they wouldn't know how to go outside with the kid next door and just climb a tree.  If they did, they'd have to wear a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, and carry a cell phone to call for help once they got up there.  I guess being a kid in the 1960s was just so different.  We went to school, made our friends, lost our friends, read at our grade level (and that was OKAY), and for the most part we're smart successful people.  Oh well, off my soap box.
are we related RadGuy??? nm
Not housekeeping related but why would you be
engaged to someone who not only doesn't help financially but also brings their mother along for the ride?
I have a QA related question
Concerning my new job, which I started about two weeks ago: My QA, so far, has only given me feedback twice. When one of the errors was over misspelling the name of a local clinic, I asked her if she could tell me where I might find this information. I have yet to get a response from her. Another error was misspelling a clinic docs name (not from the hospital I am transcribing). I asked her again with no response. Am I asking the wrong person? Should I be asking HR instead?
Thank you!
Not mt related but need info
on drug and alcohol addiction intervention - my sister is doing one Wednesday night at church for both her husband and her 23 year old daughter and I would like to know what to expect.  I think the husband is so far gone nothing will help.  The daughter is into alcohol and recently got into meth, has a 2 year old and am terrified of what is going to happen to her if she does not get help, she went into rehab but they only kept her 3 days and now is going to 5, 8-hour days of therapy.  Her and her mom are always at each other, do not get along (mother is also bipolar),  Any ideas as to what I can expect?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
RE: totally not MT related
What a childish attitude. The woman is not seeing your husband, nor is she interested as per your post, so why would it upset you? Your best option would be to put it out of your mind and consider placing your anger at something more important.
Are we related? I have a cousin just like this....sm
as long as she thinks the spotlight can be on her she's all for everything - but if she's not in the spotlight then she doesn't show up, etc. At least I got off the hook when she got married for the FOURTH time - she had a small wedding and invited my nephew (ring bearer), my sister/brother-in-law and my brother (photographer) but I didn't get an invite as she didn't have space.... so I never sent her even a card acknowledging her marriage.
I wonder if your family is related to my MIL
When I decided to stay home, she had a fit! I told her it just made practical sense. We had a premature daughter and with all of these warnings about RSV in preemies, I just decided not to take the risk of putting her in daycare. Especially since I have experience in a field that allows you to stay home. Well...when we told her this decision, you would have thought the world was falling apart based on our decision alone. What she doesn't realize is the money we are saving by my staying at home! No daycare bill, no money spent on gas or lunches. Even after we explained it all to her she still didn't understand. I got to the point where I just basically told her it was our decision and our business. We were the ones paying OUR bills and we were the one worrying about our daughter. You would think the lady would be supportive because this IS her granddaughter, but oh no. The funny thing is she doesn't mind calling me and asking me to watch her other granddaughter whenever the sitter is sick or has a vacation because her other daughter-in-law "works".

Oh! The MIL works at the local bank... I make sure I go to her lane every time I go into to cash my check!
not related necessarily
but I need a part-time job and would love to find one in DQS.  Actually, at this point, would like to find anything I can do.  Would it be too much to ask to e-mail me with any leads?  TIA.
Eye related question . . .
Is it possible to have the beginnings of macular degeneration with a perferct field of vision? 
I would look into something health related
I'd look into something in the health field so that your MT background is at least partially relevant such as insurance claims processor for a health insurance company, a coder, or in billing for a large clinic or hospital. I don't think any of those require more college, although they may prefer some training at least. There are of course many other directions in the health field, but many have you interacting with people.
MT and non-related work
Hello Fellow Transcriptionist.  I was wondering if someone out there could answer a  few questions to set me on the right track.  I would like to freelance medical and non-medical transcriptions as well and was wondering how to charge for this  by the page or by the line count?  Also would like to know things to avoid or helpful tips with this adventure??  Thanks a ton.
Totally not MT-related, but need advice
My old crockpot (have had it for 20+ years) needs to be replaced. It seems to work fine but the plastic lid is totally cracked. It's probably losing heat because of this, so I would like to get a new one. I know there are some folks on here who use their crockpots a lot and was hoping for a little advice. I was thinking about getting a programmable one. I don't really NEED it, since I'm at home working anyway, but wonder if it offers any advantages over the regular kind. I would probably get the 5-quart model. Any feedback would be appreciated. TIA.
help please, re Amway related business
my daughter and s-i-l, who cannot afford it, are about to get snookered into Quixtar, a company related to Amway.  Can anyone give me info about their experiences with this?  thanks.
If I have a transcription related question
I ask it and may get one or two responses, usually nothing helpful. However, any ol' goofball question that has nothing whatsoever to do with transcription - and there are a couple dozen or more responses. Some people would like to come here for help and advice on MT issues. Unfortunately, MT doesn't seem to interest the people who visit this board. There are many MT related questions posted with no replies at all.

If you look over this page and the next 2-3 pages (that's just a sample) and look at the longest threads...what is being discussed?...cats, dogs, high schools, Walmart, gays, gay movies, etc. The folks who are trying to benefit from visiting this board have to sift through all of that nonsense in order to see MT related topics.
Not MT-related. A houseplant question. SM

Could anyone tell me how to start an English ivy?  I have a plant from my grandmother that both my sisters want a start from.  I am lucky it has still survived with me, but is quite healthy looking and grows like crazy!  How can I make a start from this plant?
