Around here you don’t put your laundry out during the spring unless you want it to turn yellow with pollen. Unless you have experienced it you cannot believe how coated everything gets during the pollen season. One of my neighbors moved down from up north and the first time he went outside during the pollen season he called DHEC to report a hazardous chemical spill. The fellow on the other end told his that it was just pollen and my neighbor replied that he was a chemical engineer specializing in hazardous waste and there was no way this could be just pollen. He finally learned things are different down south.
If the salary cap is only $996,000 I wonder if that is their biggest expense. There are a lot of other costs besides player salaries.
Not necessarily, when I was in the hospital last year hurricane Florence hit us and the power at the hospital went out for two days. They had backup generators but they weren’t connected to the air conditioners. The heat wasn’t so bad but the humidity got so bad until it became dangerous to walk across the floor. The laundry wasn’t working so bed linen changes were restricted to those who absolutely needed it and the food service had to make do without a lot of cooking or dish washing.
There are many reasons that health care in the US is so high. One is the cost of malpractice suits, which there is little actual malpractice but rather someone looking for a big payday. Chrysi Cat is almost correct that in true malpractice cases no amount of money will make you whole again. Another reason is the commercialization of hospitals and doctors offices. The hospitals have been bought up by giant corporations who have in turn bought all of the doctors practices. The doctors have become employees subject to quotas and the practice run by the office manager. Add in that the insurance companies now are in the business of telling doctors and patients what tests can be performed and what procedures and drugs can be prescribed. I could go on but you get the idea that there is no one answer to the high cost of health care.
Add to that on the average 50 percent of the total cost of a person’s health care will occur during the last year of a person’s life and actually be a very poor quality of life. Therefore if we could convince everyone to die one year earlier we could immediately cut health care costs in half.
It seems more like I spend 2-1/2 days a week looking for something.
There is always the ID-10-T error, When I was running my Internet business I had one customer that was bragging about how he had read all the magazines and purchased the best computer out there. He signed up for service and I tried to get him to take one of the sheets with the setup information on it. He absolutely refused q to take it with him because his son and daughter were coming that weekend for Christmas and knew everything there was to know about computers. Setting up a computer to connect to the Internet was such a simple task that he was not about to stoop to carrying directions to his children who already knew everything. He came back in on Monday after Christmas complaining about how crappy my equipment was and that they could never get connected.He did bring his computer with him and it took me about two minuted to take out their settings and put the correct ones in. He went home and tried to change them back to what his children used and of course it didn’t work. So he came back and wanted his money back and was going to get real internet with AOL,
I would not doubt that someone is going to try that before too long.
Try going to some of the college football game with the family. It takes the average fan two weeks salary just for the privilege of being able to buy season tickets.
At the risk of sounding old-fashioned this is a cute strip today with all three lined up on the mat together.
They just fired their coach so maybe it is a start and the crowd can go home temporarily.
