I never considered this before.  Even our marked units are pretty bland.

A little disingenuous, not every police car is unmarked.

A friend of mine was hired by a local insurance provider to help enroll people in light of the ACA.  As such she has been very busy lately but I got to talk to her recently.  Funny comment she made, "You wouldn't believe how many people just walked away or hung up when they found out they would still have to pay SOMETHING for their insurance..."

Pardon the source and slant of the article.  So let's see: an unsafe practice, "he had been drinking most of the day", = DARWIN WINNER!

In the late fifties the only time I ever heard an adult say "Don't drink and ........." was "Don't drink and handle guns". Driving and scuba diving don'ts came much later.

My Governor, heading out to the heathens in the West.
In a Thursday night speech at Ronald Reagan’s presidential library, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will warn of a “silent war” on religious liberty in America and urge states to pass laws designed to block overreach by the Obama administration. The 4,500-word address, shared first with POLITICO, touches on several hot-button issues,...

Guns & Carry Laws  - 
 
My pastor announced that we now have 'church marshalls' (my term, not his).  After Sandy Hook, every Sunday and other major events, my church has paid for off duty police to be on site.  Now we have an organized group of armed individuals/church members who will help fill in the gaps because the one officer obviously can't be everywhere at once.  The identity of these armed individuals are only known to some of the staff and those participating in this group.

I know my church has several state troopers that attend regularly, so I'm guessing them, maybe some military, I don't know if we have any police members.

Regardless, I applaud my pastor's willingness to literally protect his congregation with such force.

The book "Shooting Back" by Charl van Wyke (hope I spelled that right) has a great quote, which I've seen several places: "Are we really 'loving our neighbor as ourselves' when we stand by and let them be robbed, raped, murdered, etc?" I think not. Good for your church, +Ash Jones . Glad to hear it. There are several of us in my church who carry, as well (myself included).

Work
Occupation
Credentials Coordinator / Human Resources
Skills
Professional in actions and presentation.  Analytical in process and desired result. Superb organizational skills. Independent yet collaborative.
Employment
  • LTAC Hospital
    Medical Staff Coordinator, 2012 - 2014
    Sole Credentials Specialist for the primary Long Term Acute Care Hospital in Baton Rouge, located on three sites (two were a hospital-in-a-hospital, one stand alone facility) falling under two separate licenses. Responsible for all development, planning, policy and procedure, and operational management of Medical-Dental Staff and Allied Staff professional Credentialing programs with a roster of over 220 practitioners. The precedessor in my position had been let go several months prior, and as such I was given the keys to the office and told to 'go handle it.' No training on their system or software, no explanation on the established process, no one to point me to the documents which would be part of my daily duties, no one to show me where things were left off or what was a priority at that point. No problem. Challenge accepted.
  • Largest Hospital in the state
    Human Resources / Credentials Specialist, 1999 - 2012
    As a Human Resources professional: Recruiter for several hospital departments including Materials Management, Mental & Behavioral Health, Our Lady of the Lake College, MIS/CIS/TIS, Physical Therapy/Rehab, and several others. Served as a primary contact for Department Managers and Directors regarding hospital policy, employment law, and disciplinary issues. In 1999 I started off as a HR Generalist processing Exit Interviews and COBRA/termination processes. My duties expanded over they years as I showed mastery in my departments. I was given the leftover/difficult to classify areas of recruitment and spent a good bit of time working closely with managers regarding hospital policy and application to their area. During a 'hiring freeze' one winter I asked my director if there was anything else I could do as I was caught up. "Have you thought about switching from HR and trying something new?" Thus my professional change to the Credentials side of hospital management. As a Credentials Specialist: Accountable for the development, planning, and operational management of Medical-Dental Staff and Allied Health professional Credentialing programs. Supervisor of three Credentials Representatives as we manage a privileged staff roster of over 1145 professionals. Maintained program’s integrity and compliance with Medical Staff Bylaws, Rules and Regulations, federal, state, and national regulation boards. Accomplishments: expanded MSO from two to four professionals, successful delegated credentialing reviews from several outside programs including The Joint Commission, digital scanning process of all MSO paperwork (70% reduction of paperwork), implementation of online application for physicians, and averaged the credentialing of 66 Physicians and 58 Allied Health per year.

Not often you can 'trust' your mechanic. I, my wife, and my parents all bring our car into Tinh's shop. We even brought in the "suggested repairs" list the dealer gave us. He did the suggested serpentine belt (on a 110,000 mile car) and suggested a few other items on the list (most I could do at home). The big ticket items from the dealer's list weren't even mentioned. They're busy and get a lot of repeat customers for a reason. He always gets my business.

Mediocre food, LONG waits, great beer selection, and a 'tradition' with not much to substantiate it by. So popular in Baton Rouge but other than the original at the North gates of LSU, this is a sad expansion of a college tradition. Expect your wait to be 30+ minutes to be seated and then have sub-standard service.

It's more of a Baton Rouge establishment than anything else. Yes the steaks are above average and the median age of the customers will be 55+ because, well, it's an establishment.

Incredibly good, but incredibly EXPENSIVE. Sure it is all you can eat, but at over $50 a person...

Probably the best steak I've had in my life. No, not an exaggeration so let me say it again, probably the best steak I've had in my life. I'm not the type of person who is used to paying $50 for a steak, but with a gift card my wife and I enjoyed a night out at Fleming's and had a great dinner with excellent food. Just be prepared to spend some mega $$$.

If you want seafood (especially fried), there is no other place to go than Mike Anderson's. Their Louisiana seafood specialty dishes are tasty and unique to the area. Their house salad is HEAVY in garlic to the point that when you belch even a tiny bit an hour after your meal is done... you still can taste the garlic. Main problem with the site is that they are always busy, so get there early or expect a significant wait.
