Here’s something that many Americans -- including some of the smartest and most educated among us -- don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheerleading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants t...

Following WWII, the GI Bill made getting a college education possible to thousands upon thousands of Americans who would otherwise missed their chance for a better life. As a result, the USA has experienced a technological explosion that's lasted from the 1950's and 60's clear up to this very day. Educating all those who hunger for knowledge is a PROVEN technique that benefits the lives of the graduates, their families and society in general. I can only applaud the president's proposal to extend a community college education to everyone who wishes one.
He'll formally announce the effort on Friday

Although the Apollo computers had less power than a cell phone, they were the huge, old-fashioned kind that filled an entire room of their own. So, what did my dad and the other Apollo engineers use at their desks when they wanted to calculate something? SLIDE RULES. Does anyone these days even remember those old-fashioned devices? Ha ha, how times change!
 
For example: The Apollo computers had less processing power than a cellphone. http://ow.ly/zlCGV

My family & I write and operate 3 travel-related websites. Between all the places we've lived & road trips we've made, we have amassed thousands of photos & tons of information that we think can be interesting and helpful to other people. Hence, our 3 websites were born...and a steady stream of readers seem to enjoy what we have to share.

The Little Clinic is indeed fast, convenient and professional. So, my actual visit had no problems. However, it's now a month later and I just received an additional bill (after paying in full at the clinic itself.) For a place whose major claim to fame is its discounted price, this is unacceptable. I paid the fee that was posted on their sign, and the Little Clinic understood that I had no health insurance (so I would be paying them the entire amount & wouldn't be making a co-payment later.). Why should I call the clinic's headquarters and haggle over the price when the charge was very plainly given to me over the telephone in advance (and clearly posted in the Buckeye clinic, too?) FYI, I was quoted $85, and that payment was accepted here in Buckeye. The bill i received (from Nashville, TN) states a consultation price of $110 and $20 for a specimen. You be the judge if that's a good business practice or not. As for me, I won't be returning.

Dr Nemechek answers phone calls and emails personally. (Strange, but true.) He listens during an office visit, and remembers what I tell him. His office is pleasant and I haven't had a long waiting time for an appointment yet. And he's very good at diagnosing whatever the problem might be, and then fixing it. I don't want this review to sound "too good" like it's fake spam, but it's really true that I've found my ideal doctor, and have absolutely no plans in changing.
