[quote]quote: its not just that. in some European countries MDs do not have any college debt when they start practice. College debt isn't a major cost driver in our healthcare system.[/quote] In addition, physician reimbursement is only 8% of total healthcare expenditures. So, by cutting pay say ...

re: And the intestinal fortitude award goes to ... Tarsha Amar-Clark, Exec. Director EBRCOA - pngtiger
[quote]says the PAC changed its campaign finance reports to reflect individual donations from COA employees rather than as a donation from the agency as a whole.[/quote] Is this voluntary or compulsary? Even if voluntary, I see a huge conflict if it is coming out of the employee's paychecks. And ...

[quote]LSU should not be about tweaking and tinkering lineups, LSU should be about fired up excitement and motivation.

re: Why can't you rent a car with a manual transmission? - pngtiger
I was looking at jeeps at one point, and couldn't believe it was so hard to find a manual. I also looked at the m series Bmw's and to get a manual, I would have to special order it. They said, "you will have paddle shifters or the steptronic shifter". explained the whole reason I was looking at that...

re: OT Medicos: right side testicle pain, sickness to stomach - pngtiger
Testicular torsion, or hernia (but the testicle doesn't usually ride high with a hernia). The episodic nature sounds like it Torses and untorses. The pain in the stomach is because the testicles (and ovaries) developed around the kidney, then descend down before birth. So the innervation would b...

re: Candle burners of the OT, what's your favorite candle? - pngtiger
Like the jasmine and patchouli too, used to burn these a lot (and had the oil with whacks). Lately, got the huge French oak candle from restoration hardware. It took a year to burn the first one, which for the cost was good. Have tried finding something similar elsewhere and for cheaper, but no ...

re: People who stop for an ambulance on opposite side of interstate. - pngtiger
I'm calling bs on Florida and Georgia. Living in Florida now, no one on the other side on a 4+ lane road stops. Plenty of cops, no one gets stopped. Lived in Georgia for 4 years, and people did that shite all the time. Had a few a cops as patient, asked them if it's a law. All said no, not on...

re: Largest Dam in the Country at risk to fail EDIT- no immediate danger - pngtiger
Good point, canyon is like V, not a U. Didn't think of that. Guess there's a main discharge area close to the dam, since it's used for electrical generation. But out of all the pictures I've seen, I haven't seen anything close to the dam that looks like a main discharge. ...

re: Largest Dam in the Country at risk to fail EDIT- no immediate danger - pngtiger
Just don't see how that's possible. heard at one point the water level was dropping by 4" per hour. At that rate, they'd need over 6 days to get 50' down. And, how are they releasing water when the spillway is closed for repairs?...

re: Largest Dam in the Country at risk to fail EDIT- no immediate danger - pngtiger
One of the videos I saw showed the auxiliary spillway (the one with concrete and the sinkhole) before the collapse, and after the flow rate was increased to 100,00 cfps. The turbulence of the water was so great, it was rushing over the sides of the concrete. This undermined the base, which lead to t...

Very well said! I'd like to add I've run into problems with appy's and gallbladders and imaging. Insurance companies have started withholding payments if you perform a surgery with no confirmatory objective data (I.e. Imaging). You can have a clinical diagnosis, have a suppurative GB or appy, ha...
