I have 1 ear glued to TV and 1 to my earphones.  Now they say it was a miscommunication from the mine to the command center, then randomly picked up through cell phone transmissions.  The actual company never said there were survivors but in this day of 24/7 news, and the natural need of people to have to believe it, it obviously spread like wildfire.

You just wonder about all the cable news these days.  While we are witness to so much history as it happens, they do have to keep their hours filled, try to out do each other with exclusives and with a tragedy like this, it just sickens one to see these reporters knocking each other down to try to get THE exclusive on a family that just went through this horror.

I just saw on MSNBC where relief efforts sm
have finally reached Slidell. From the video, there are boats and jetskis and FEMA is there, too. There is flooding and the homes have been severely damaged. Hope we can hear from her soon.
MSNBC said Snowball was found

I found this on their website - sounds kinda promising (I think), but the gal on MSNBC said the dog and the boy had been reunited.  I sure hope so.  I'm an animal lover and that stressed me out really bad. 



An Outsourced Life -- anyone see that on MSNBC?

I didn't know whether to laugh or be disgusted, so I have decided to do both.

Just saw a story on MSNBC about some jerk (an American jerk, looks like the biggest geek in the world) who has outsourced all his worries to a Pakistan company and a young, pretty Pakistani girl named "Honey" takes care of answering all his emails for work, for home, for his family, etc.  Hired a second Pakistani woman, a middle-aged woman (forget her name) to handle his WIFE.  When his wife is upset with him or he with her, he emails this Pakistani woman and she handles it -- emails the wife and argues FOR this jerk.  Even picks out the gifts he gives his kids and wife.  OMG. 

What a stupidman for doing it and, I must say, a stupid woman for putting up with that. 

How's that for Americans outsourcing everything and sending it overseas?!

msnbc oursourcing vote
Here's where to vote once you're at the msnbc.com web site: It's under the Only on MSNBC.com heading, the one with a Harry Potter picture, and is about the 9th line down and called "Gut Check America".
MSNBC said today cruise ships are on the way now SM
They said it takes a little bit of time to get there, but Coast Guard works closely with the cruise lines.
MSNBC - last night -or maybe Fox, can't remember, was watching both
Interesting article on MSNBC regarding repetitive motion strain and malaise.
Scan it in.

Copy the pic.  When you go into word, just view "header/footer" and paste in the pic.  This has worked for me. 

do paragraph, then scan over it
I listen as I go along also.  It really gets to be quite easy.  To reread the report definitely would cost money.  I do a paragraph or so and as the doctor is shuffling papers or gathering his thoughts, not really dictating, I scan down the paragraph to make sure it is okay.
chalasia scan
achalasia cardia scan for gastroesophageal reflux disorder
Just run a scan of the C drive with the AVG - sm
it will scan everything and let you know if it finds anything. It automatically quantines them I believe so you should have any any problams in any case.
executive body scan???
Could this be correct?  Outcoming being discovery of gallstones.
try googling "achalasia scan." nm
Please help with PET scan on Word Board
Scan through and hopefully catch mistakes as I go. sm
That don't pay me enough this day and time to proof every single word I type. Take our wages minus IC expenses and we aren't making much. I look at it like you pay for what you get sometimes. Now that isn't to say I don't care about quality as I do. I just proof as I go and try my best to catch it and be accurate but I do have 15 yrs exp and can usually tell immediately if I have made a typo. I may get a he or she mixed up here and there but no major errors in the report.
You have dragon scan your documents and -
it picks up words it does not know and has you train them, and it also recognizes words that you use more than others.
AVG free virus scan
try an off-site, online scan
Go to www.bitdefender.com and use their online scanning. It is very good. If you've got anything, it will get rid of it. Highly recommended.
How to bill for HIDA scan?

I know HIDA scans are nuke med but would they fall into the category of CT/MRI/PET or US/DEXA for billing purposes?

I say CT/MRI/PET but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Has anyone ever heard of or has had a chalasia scan for GERD? sm

My 4 y/o daughter is scheduled to have this done tomorrow AM. I have tried to Google it, but not getting much info on it. She was at a specialist today and they scheduled her to go to the Childrens Hosp for a Chalasia scan, which is also referred to as a gastroesophogeal reflux scan. Any info would be much appreciated. thanks

maybe it's time for a scan disk and defrag....sm
First, I'd do a scan disk and then defragmentation and then reboot the computer.  If it's still freezing, perhaps you are running out of space (?) and/or need more RAM (memory) which is cheap to buy today.  Also, while you ran a virus scan - do you have a program similar to spybot?  They pick up things that sometimes get past your virus scanner.  Hope it works out for you! 
I do a restart every morning after I run spyware scan.
There is a Technetium MAG3 scan. Not sure about the numbers used.
Hope this helps.
I do the same thing. Then when the report is finished, I scan back through
the whole report to make sure I didn't leave any stop code markers behind, and listen to each blank once again.
First I'd reboot and if that didn't work run a virus scan. nm
Please run your virus scan - got 4 threats detected from going on this site. nm
not a virus, a glitch. if you run a scan regularly, you would see no festations. NM
Norton 360 was installed, I did a full scan, and it found nothing...MUST SM
I downloaded Malwarebytes and it found 12 critical trojans!! As soon as I find a good AV program, I'm totally uninstalling Norton's. Like you, I thought Norton was great and used it for years. Maybe it's just not keeping up with all the techno-creeps out there that have nothing better to do destroy the PCs of working people. UGH!!

Sheesh. Lighten up. It WAS funny. You don't scan the enitre report, or whatever! It was amusing i

Actually, you don't have to answer that...

Try achalasia scan, not a chalasia. Easy one to miss. good luck. nm
Thank you ghost! So true! So true! More than one person!
Yer crackin' me up! True, true, true! nm
3. CT scan showing an odontoid fracture at the base and also fracture of the posterior ALMA at C1-C2

Have you done spyware scans, defrag, virus scan and reboot? All of these help me. Run spyware
ROFL!! true, so true! nm
true, true but out of about 90 flicks....1 or 2...nm

true, true - but what you see as arrogance...sm

I think a lot of people go the extreme -

so, if I had to be one way or the other (being a humble extremist myself...*LOL*), I'd rather have too much self-esteem than not enough (been there, done that the first 30 years!!! *L*).  And I am a truly humble person, been recognized for just that.....but because of *been there, done that* - and all sorts of therapies (not drug therapies), some end up the other way.  Oh well, this was a fun couple of posts - so I thought.

Gave me much to chew on :)  Have fun!  

True but to say there are no good MTs not true.
ROFLMAO!!!! so true! so true!
Everybody sees it but her, though! I love it! Thanks for the giggle! ":^)
that's so true nm

this is sad, but true
search engines are great, but they pick up all the WRONG information also...so be careful
That may be true for No. Cal. (sm)

in Southern Cal (Orange County), the accounts have become quite scarce and most doctors will not pay over 11 cents per line, that is, if you can find your own accounts at all anymore.  They get a lot of solicitations and do not have to pay over 11 cents.  There is a lot of EMR taking over out here or all the accounts have been taken by large services.

Sad but true
Of course, what you say is all true; however...
my compassion and tolerance dries up pretty quickly when someone expects special treatment (plays the ____ card, if you will) because of situations they are in a result of their own decisions.

This comes across as harsh, but it's a fact of life that decisions do have consequences, and when people try to minimize the consequences of their actions and/or expect other people to pick up their slack, I get mighty testy indeed.
Hey, what I said is true - I do it --
I don't cherrypick. I probably work longer hours (about 9-1/2 to 10 a day)than most but I can get 3000 lines in a day and if I worked longer, say 15-16 hours, I have no doubt I could get 4800 lines.

No one is cutting ANYONE's line count. I just stick with it, man. I keep typing while others are up running around doing their laundry, or tending to a kid, or playing on this board. I just keep typing steadily along.

Hey, man, I'm sorry if you have problems getting more lines but that doesn't mean I or anyone else am taking them from you. They are there. Sit down and type 'em.

And NO, I don't work for this company. Every company has CPs and it is not fair. But just because YOU can't do someone else's line count doesn't mean they didn't get it -- without doing something unfairly.
That's not true (sm)
I confirmed this with my office when I started DQS. I also tested it by importing text into another program and all characters and spaces, including the red headers were counted.

Is this true?

A girl at work today told me that Keanu Reeves is the (late) Christopher Reeves son.

I never heard this before, and so far I am unable to document via the internet.  Anyone have any input?  Much thanks.

It is true

Dont doubt it, it is true. 

true true.
