ABC told Star not to come to work anymore because of her stunt yesterday. Burn bridges, burn! nm
Front-end speech is "talking;" back-end speech is flatulence. :-)
That is star wars, not star trek. I really wish they would
show the reruns for the series that had 7 of 9 as a character. 
And now... the clip!
Saw a news clip that said they were down with
Wow - Talk about timing! I just saw a clip from - (sm)
Michael Moore's latest movie, "Sicko".  This time he takes in the inequity and outright greed in the healthcare industry in the U.S.  Sure, some of it is bound to be a bit sensational, like when he takes a bunch of U.S. 911-first-responders down to Guantanamo, but I'm sure there will be many aspects of this movie that will bring other aspects of healthcare besides just going to see a doctor into the public eye.  He had some insiders talking in the movie, too.  That's one I'm going to have to see!  If ever there were a time to state our case, this just might be it.   
Here's a longer clip of that dancing dog. Worth the watch!
This woman's name is Carolyn Scott and her dog Rookie!  What a pair!
Barbara Walters explains today (see clip inside)
The voice clip doesn't offer footpedal capability
It is like the audio clips that music come on. There is only stop and go.

The test is for a company called Teletrak. I asked her and she said you used the mouse to stop and start but geeeesh, that will take all day, especially with the ESL (Tried already), and I am not a bad MT, just used to stopping and typing and you know, rewinding and relistening...

Anywho, thanks! I will try to take it. Figure I will through it all several times times.
The sound clip is internet based, like music, play and stop.
Teletrak has position available for PT work. Taking the test without foot pedal though is difficult and I wondered if I were just slow (20 yr long MT) or if others would consider this test also a daunting task.

It's great she was able to lose the weight and now feel so much better about herself. She doesn't have to be like Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton and tell that she's had surgery if she doesn't want to. Some people may not want their medical/surgical history public. No need to know whether someone had gastric bypass, hysterecomy, or anything else if they don't want to divulge that info.
According to what I read, Star has *turned off* so many readers with her wedding and weight loss that THEY decided not to renew her contract. I am one of those viewers. I never had an opinion on her one way or the other, but once she started with her crazy wedding I was totally turned off.
So, tell me about HBO Star
Just wondering if anyone has experience with HBO Star (radiology at Keystrokes) and what to expect. Also, I thought I read somewhere that you can't browse the internet with HBO Star and the VPN? What?? Thanks for the info...
nashville star
USA network on Tues at 10 p.m. Announce their winner next week. More to compete to come later in year. Winner wins a RCA recording contract. Wyonna and Cowboy Troy are hosts. Always special guest. Judges are fun. Idol spin-off but way more entertaining, real,and you know who's out from the week before on the show. No extra show to see the results. Awesome entertainment. Not a huge country fan, but have found these kids very talented.
Y-City star
I guess they don't have the public voting ready yet. It should be ready tomorrow. I will keep you posted.  Thanks on the hair color. My stylist thanks you too. I can honestly say it WAS my natural color when I was 10
Y-City Star
I definitely will keep you all posted.  You should be able to hear a 90-second audition clip tomorrow. The first show will be July 15th and the second July 29th. The first 20 will be narrowed down to 8 and then the winner.  This is a lot of fun and I am definitely singing for "All the Girls" I was never one to get up in front of people and talk much less sing. Finally got the courage.  THANKS FOR THE VOTES!!
Rosie vs Star (sm)
Why is Rosie so concerned that Star tell all of her business. Who cares how she lost the weight. Rosie is no different. She waited years to tell she was gay. Why didn't she tell that sooner????
Star's replacement...
I like Gayle King (Oprah's BFF), so I hope this rumor's true.  Rosie, Gayle, and Joy should make a nice combo.  I may actually start watching The View again! 
Star Jones
She didn't leave The View of her own free will, her contract wasn't renewed. There's a whole thread farther down about what happened and how it came to be that she was told not to come back after she told everyone a few days earlier than planned that she wasn't returning to the show in the Fall.
no, Star got drunk on herself........nm

Wolf Star
No, but I'm being offered a job with them. Are you working for them and, if so, how are they? TIA :-)
WOOT! No really, that is an OLD dream of mine. Now I think I would just like to travel the world and explore it with my hubby. I am a culture buff. <3

I would also like to continue my self-education that I work on daily. I am trying to learn about everything because I want to know everything and understand the entire universe, LOL. :)

I would also like to be able to put everything together in order to do something that gives a LOT of people joy and hope along with personal power. What that something is, I do not know.

This thread is awesome. It really gives insight as to how different we all are. I love seeing that if we all had the freedom to do what we truly wanted to do, we would not choose the same things. It also shows that we certainly would not stop being "productive" if money were not needed or earned. :)

Rock Star INXS
Has anyone been watching Rock Star INXS?  Tuesday nights when they perform is great..Im telling you these people have talent.  Last night, Ty Taylor sang a Bob Marley song..Woman Dont Cry..I was rocking..I love Bob Marley and have most of his albums..This show is great and has better performers than American Idol, IMHO..plus there is also the added attraction of watching man babes, starting with Dave Navarro (oh..just love his muscles)..
Star Jones gets even more ugly

Anyone else here an avid star gazer?
I got my first telescope the other day and have seen the moon.  It is too cool!!  But, I cannot seem to get any planets in my view.  I have googled like crazy using the brand and number of the scope, but still nothing.  Does anyone have some advice on where to go?  I have several astronomy sites on my favorites list, but none can help me so far.  TIA
Are there any Star Trek fans
Wondering if most MTs are Star Trek fans?????
That was Star Trek Voyager ...
... and I too wish they would rerun that show.  I haven't seen it for a long time.  I also liked Star Trek Enterprise.  Long Live Star Trek.
Speaking of Star Jones
Pics of her wearing a bathing suit. Gross.
The star of the hit show 24, which I love. nm
Next Food Network Star
Anybody watch The Next Food Network Star tonight on Food Network?  Yvonne got "voted off the island" this time - she was always cooking ethnic and hispanic foods that were good, but she copped an attitude when she got voted off.  The guy from Iowa is still going strong!  I betcha the blond chunky guy wins (is Guy his name?) though. 
Y-City Star competition - like AI

Fellow MTs and American Idol watchers,


I made it to the top 20 in the local Zanesville, OH competition similar to American Idol. PLEASE HELP A FELLOW MT!!! You can go online and vote tomorrow for me. PLEASE!! go to www.whiznews.com or www.zanesvilletimesrecorder.com and cast your vote. You should be able to hear me sing for about 90 seconds. The public vote is only a portion of the scoring. I will be judged on vocal quality and performance as well. The first night of actual competition is July 15th and then again on July 29th if I made it to the top 8. I appreciate each and every vote.  There is some stiff competition ahead of me. Lots of talent in OHIO!!! This is gonna be fun!

Y-City Star questions
I didn't see where we could listen or vote. I did find a picture of you though--you have very pretty color hair. Looks like you were putting your all into it. Good Luck!
Y-CITY STAR video is up

www.whiznews.com/ycitystar.php  Here's the link. Look for my name and then video. PLEASE VOTE. I AM STILL BEHIND. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST!!

ABC did not renew Star's contract....sm

ABC did not want to renew Star's contract this coming August-September.  She knew that before the announcement that Rosie would be replacing Meredith.  I, for one, am ecstatic that Star is leaving The View.  Barbara Walters knew all about it prior - it's all over the web news.  They all are so annoying except Joy Behar.  Her annoying ways are part of her stand-up but I believe that Joy Behar is the most open-minded one on the show and I wish they'd dump Elisabeth.  I watch so much less now that Meredith is gone (and I didn't like Meredith the first years either but grew to like her the best).

Oh well, we ALL can agree to disagree! 

HGTV Design Star
Am I the only one hooked on this show???  I was so glad to see Alice stay in the competition last night.  I was sad to see Tym go, but glad that David got to stay.  Wonder who will win??
Anyone else vote online or text message for one of these kids?  Just curious as to which one you voted for....my vote was for David.  Alice's designs did nothing for me, and she had a somewhat fake affect.  Any other opinions?
Nashville Star fans...

wolf star transcription
I was just wondering if anyone has done radiology for Wolf Star transcription??? Just wanted some feedback on the company. Thanks:)
emtjack/Transcription Star
I did a search on this company and yep, they are from India with satellite offices in New York and CA.  I took a gander at their pricing - holy smokes! $10-12 an hour for audio transcription of police interviews, multi-speaker conferences etc?!!!???!!?  That is insane!  Who in their right mind would send this company verbatim work or work of a sensitive nature when they can't even command the English language!  Time to give India the boot!
Are you using Speech EXT or something else? nm
Transcription,Technology,and Support is supposed to be implementing this in the near future.
speech rec
It really does suck. No punctuation, wrong headings, puts in he instead of she or vice versa, lists numbered wrong, doctors names wrong. If you ask me, lets get back to what worked!!!!
speech rec
I absolutely hate speech rec. I see it as a way of utterly dumbing down the profession and paying us even less than we're already getting paid over time, like factory work. With our system (not Dictaphone but a major player), they have enabled essentially all the dictators (even those who are horrible), meaning that the proofreading is a killer, and it's not getting better, some dictations are absolute gobbelty-gook. These days, it ain't my wrists but my neck and left shoulder muscles that get the workout from the stress of how hard I have to concentrate. We've been told that the physicians must never see what the report would look like if we weren't charged with making absolutely certain it's picture perfect, as though we'd typed it! And yeah, I'd just as soon delete the whole durned report on some of these and just transcribe it. To heck with production, which is the constant mantra where I work. Again, I absolutely HATE it and pray it will somehow collapse, but I don't see it happening, not with jobs being so hard to come by.

I can foresee where speech rec could be "perfected" to the extent that there will come a time when an intelligent person could conceivably just sit down and read through these reports and actually learn medical terminology and the whole process by just doing speech rec. Again, like factory work. Think about it.
On speech rec
The company I work for pays 4 cents a line for speech recognition and the minimum for speech rec is 11,000 a pay period. That comes out to $5.50 an hour. I believe the minimum wage in Texas is $6, so I do not make minimum wage doing only SR. To get minimum wage I have to do 12,000 lines a pay period. Actually I do more than that because of the cost of living!
If it weren't for us Americans, he wouldn't be the star

Does anybody else watch Rock Star INXS ?nm


It's all good. Doesn't Star look like a guy in drag?
Especially since she lost weight. So who cares about her husband's "orientation"? I'm not so sure about Star.
where are all the nashville star fans?? opinions?

i am a big fan of CR, awesome job, awesome voice, and TV does him no justice compared to in person.  i think CY is good too but doesn't show as much versatility as CR does.  what went wrong last night with MM gone and NJ still being there?  i am not a fan of the deep, deep voice but i know lots are and he is a much better singer than the female left. 

who do you think will win?  i was thinking CY til last night and now i am not sure.  I think it will be extremely close between CY and CR, can there be a tie??

I think it was just rumored that Star and Elisabeth may be leaving (sm)
but, yeah, if you are right.....it will be the beginning of the end if they lose 3 rather than just 1. IMO.
