if you worked with TestNG and cucumber ... please contact me ...

Dentist problems:  Anitha Prassanna, Titusville, FL:    I had multiple problems with her billing people.   They failed to obtain proper insurance preauthorization for 4 medically necessary crowns.    On 4th Nov 2015 they told me my cost would be $1,100, already quite steep, but I paid it.   After completing the procedure, Delta Dental denied the claim and paid nothing.   So Prasanna's people billed me for an extra $1,329.  I appealed, but the appeal was denied.     Then when I tried to pay the $1,329, they screwed up the credit card charges....

Lunar Lift Alliance Applauds New ESA Director General proposal for Lunar Farside Base
Bucharest (Romania), July 15, 2015. On 29th April 2015 Dr Johann-Dietrich Woerner, former heard of DLR, announced his intention to align the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a base on the far side of the Moon for radio astronomy and other purposes. On 1st July 2015 Dr. Woerner assumed his new office as Director General of ESA.
We believe this plan is an excellent foundation for a major expansion of space innovation within Europe.
We encourage ESA to consider the benefits of the lunar lift which will greatly reduce the cost of construction of the far side lunar base.
A lunar lift investment pays for itself after twenty payload landing cycles.
The far side of the Moon is recommended as a radio quiet zone by the International Telecommunications Union under ITU-R RA.479. A high priority to enable a lunar far-side radio astronomy facility is for the international community to legally adopt the ITU recommendation to protect the radio environment of the far side of the Moon.
The Earth is a major source of radio noise and interference, from TV, radio, electric motors, car spark plugs, etc. This makes Radio astronomy on Earth difficult. The far side of the Moon is permanently shielded from human radio transmissions, and is the best place in the solar system for a Radio Astronomy Base.
The far-side lunar radio astronomy base would be located near the lunar equator at the 180 degree longitude point, which is an ideal location for anchoring a lunar lift tether.
The Lunar Lift Alliance is working to pursue all the above objectives. We invite collaboration of all interested parties.

About the Lunar Lift System
The Lunar Space Lift (LL) is an extremely long tether extending from the lunar surface through the Earth-Moon L1 or L2 Lagrange gravity balance point (EML1/2) and relatively deep into Earth’s gravity well.
The major components of the LL prototype include the Ribbon, the Anchor Platform on the lunar surface, the Supply Depot at EML1/2, and the Counterweight (CW) at the far end.
This revolutionary first space lift structure in the solar system can be built of existing polymer materials and can be launched on a single vehicle.
The LL prototype, would be able to lift roughly 2 tons of lunar samples per year, and deploy a similar quantity of equipment onto the lunar surface, revolutionizing the transport of material to and from the Moon.
It will provide:
· Two-way transportation from LEO to the lunar surface using solar-electric propulsion
· 2400 kg of lunar material to LEO, and 2400 kg of supplies soft-landed on the Moon each year
· Capability to enable low cost construction of ESA Lunar Farside Radio Observatory
· Commercial lunar mining of valuable minerals and commodities
· Geodetic and seismic networks for precise laser ranging and Moon quake studies
· A whole-Moon telescope at L1 and/or L2 for constant monitoring of transient lunar events
· Delivery of lunar rovers for extensive robotic exploration of the lunar surface, and
· Opening the way for low-cost lunar exploration, development, and resource recovery
