re: LSU prez: We're burning through reserves for medical school - pngtiger
Louisiana actually has 3 medical schools: LSU NO and Shreveport, and Tulane. There still isn't enough doctors to go around, especially in the smaller communities, and especially in north and central La. I get emails all the time about positions there. LSUHSC Shreveport is a separate entity from L...

[quote]For $1000 a dog can have bladder stones removed, using the same anesthesia, same surgical instruments, performed by a doctor with the same amount of schooling, as a human getting the same procedure that would cost $100,000.

re: LSU playing a neutral site game in Nola.. where it should have originally been scheduled - pngtiger
[quote]It's funny how SEC teams think the universe revolves around them, how they will almost never travel outside of the SEC footprint to play OOC games (especially out west or up North or at altitude), play patsies to pad their W-L records and hype up their conference out to be the best through sm...

[quote]I never said providers were just scraping by[/quote] Some of them are, that's why we're seeing more becoming hospital employees. I didn't take home a paycheck for half a year because I wasn't making enough to pay overhead and have anything left. And I billed for $1 million during that time...

re: Weight loss surgery? - pngtiger
Don't do the band, or the new mangnetic rings. It's a foreign body that can erode, and if it does, it's a major problem. Also, it's easy to "beat it" by drinking your calories, which many do. It takes adjustments regularly (first to get it just right, almost to obstruction, then more and more as/if ...

Turn: Washington's Spies and interesting history - pngtiger
Been binge watching this show. Have really enjoyed it. As with all "historical" tv series/movies, I research it to see how accurate they are. I came across some interesting info; the great-grandfather of Benedict Arnold had many kids, whose descendants include: George H W, George W, and Jeb Bush ...
