Canon 5DS / R thoughts

First off it seems to me the new Canon 5DS / R isn’t really a 5D MK III replacement but rather a different direction. ISO performance and movie modes where rather disappointing with no advancement on this “update.” There are some improvements to note, I’m…

Unbelievable
 

My friend, Zoë Keating, is a musician, wife and mother. Recently, her husband was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. He is Vegan, and has never smoked anything in his life.

Zoë writes:

On May 13 an MRI found 20 tumors in my husbands brain. On May 15 he could barely breathe and was in a lot of pain. A CT scan that day revealed he had a softball-sized tumor in his lung, tumors in his other lung, his liver and possibly his bones. On our way home from the imaging center our primary care doc called and told us to turn around and get to the hospital right away. My husband was admitted and they promptly removed more than a pint of fluid from his lungs, which helped him breathe better. We were there for 6 days while they performed a bronchoscopy, did more scans, gave him drugs to stop his brain from swelling and administered emergency chemo.

Zoë and Jeff submitted their claim to their health insurance provider, Anthem Blue Cross. Their claim was reviewed by an OB-GYN instead of an Oncologist for some reason, and that person decided to deny their claim:

"Coverage for the requested service is denied because the service does not meet the criteria for “medical necessity” under your description of benefits. To assist our Medical Director in making this decision, we have put a process in place to send all information about the service to a clinical reviewer with appropriate credentials. Based on their opinion, we have determined that covered for the requested service is denied. Our Medical Reviewer Layma Jarjour MD has determined we cannot approve your hospital stay for cancer. We do not have enough facts to show that it was medically necessary. "

Jeff was admitted to the hospital because he had cancerous tumors all over his fucking body, his lungs were filling with fluid, and if he was not admitted, he. Would. Die. For some reason, Medical Reviewer Layma Jarjour MD decided that this was not "medically necessary."

If putting someone into the hospital to save their life because their lungs are filling with fluid and that person will die if they are not treated immediately is not "medically necessary", what is?!

Zoë pointed out that "Anthem is owned by WellPoint. Did you know Wellpoint CEO Joseph Swedish earned almost $17 million during his first year on the job? Now you know how they can afford to pay him."

I hope that, by shining some light on this, Anthem Blue Cross will reverse its decision, and honor their claim. They are suffering enough right now, and don't need this crap.

So I was reading another blog post that seemed to imply a few inaccuracies. The first of which is that 4k is a new ground breaking format... 4k has been around for years though it is becoming more ...

preliminary #GoPro Hero 4 at a glance - exciting potential

So incase anyone missed it, the latest GoPro Hero 4  is out. I’ll be talking a look primarily at the black edition as a video editor and cinematographer. The biggest change is clearly the 4k resolution at a full 30fps. Other improvements include higher…

Monopoly Much? Google to Start Kicking Independent Artists Off Youtube

... The company has announced will begin removing independent artists from Youtube "in a matter of days" if they don't sign Google's "take it or leave it" contract, which allows Google to include their music in their soon-to-be-launched subscription music service.

The Worldwide Independent Music Industry Network (WIN) says Google is forcing independent companies to take far inferior terms than those offered to industry gorillas like Sony and EMI. [...]

It's not clear how this move by Google will affect artists who are not affiliated with any music label, but simply want the ability to post their own music on Youtube. Google told Forbes that "Any user-uploaded video of copyrighted content will likely stay up too...though it's yet to be finalized."

I frequent these guys for social gatherings with photographers and they're always accommodating for us. The patio seating around the side is really nice and often forgotten about (at least by our group).

This used to be one of my go-to coffee shops for meeting with people, but they made some changes to their internet and it was sadly unusable last I was there. Their coffee is always good and the people are friendly, but I often need just a little bit of quick internet during meetings. So if you aren't in need if internet then I'd give it a 5 star (especially during nice weather with their outdoor seating).

I've never really had a good experience with these guys. They can be the place to go when you need something same or following day - they have a lot of stock. That being said they seem to charge a premium and provide minimal service in terms of answering questions, being helpful, etc. Admittedly I haven't been in there for a year or so probably.

This is definitely one of my favorite coffee shops around. Great drinks and sandwiches among other things and the internet is there (and very good) when you need it.

The first 9 are pretty straight forward while the back 9 are predominately more difficult with heavier tree coverage along the course. There tends to be more mud on the back 11-15 or so as well. The practice basket is a nice bonus along with the small field for practicing. It appears to be pretty popular as you always run into other disc golfers.
