COLLEGE CLOSING?? APPARENTLY 70 SMALL COLLEGES AFFECTING 19,000 STUDENTS AND 1400 STAFF CLOSED AT 5PM YESTERDAY IN A VERY CONFUSING MESS. IT IS IN USA TODAY AND NBC NEWS... BUT NOT "FRONT PAGE OVER THE FOLD" -
FROM USA TODAY
ECA spokeswoman Diane Worthington said that at most locations, Friday would be the last day of classes, and students would get academic credit for this term. One ECA institution, New England College of Business, is not closing.
ONE HEARS OF THINGS LIKE THIS AND FIGURE HOW CAN IT AFFECT ME? WELLLLLLL DONNA'S DAUGHTER AND HALEY --BOTH HAD STUDENT LOANS INVOLVING THIS MESS -- AND WERE TOLD THE GOV'T WAS TRYIG TO " DO SOMETHING"
EVEN THO JANINE'S N.E.COLLEGE OF BUSINESS WAS NOT CLOSED, SHE LOST HER MEDICAL COVERAGE AT 5PM YESTERDAY. THAT IS NOT EASILY SOLVED EITHERE.
i could have this all wrong.... but that will not stop me........JUST ONE MORE "BUSINESS" TAking over a viable institution, i have see soooooo MaNy.. starting with "Partners" who bought my husband's medical practice along with 1/2 the hospitals including mass general hospital --- who decided to redo the appointment books to accomodate 2 patients every 15 minutes... along with a very strong "keep 'em coming" "let me book your next appointment in 1 week so i can look at the wound to be sure there are no complications- which is medically correct so you can't sue me" the other 1/2 teh medical world around here is lahey and teh competition schemes between lahey and partners are almost comical. at lahey you are allowed a 15 minute appointemet but may only mention one ailment-- so help me... it happened...there is none of this "while i am here..." - no... you need to book another apt for left toe analysis... you are only scheduled for right shoulder."
MEDICINE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A BUSINESS-- BUT LATELY IT SEEMS MORE BUSINESS THAN MEDICINE..--long ago-- i heard a conversation between 2 doctors........ "how tHe hell did you get 12 stitches in that little wound?" the background of that was... blue cross paid by the number of stitches.... and people... ALWAYS BRAG ABOUT HOW WOUNDED THEY WERE.... " I NEEDED 12 STITCHES !!"
THIS BUSINESS TAKE OVER-- COLLEGES OR VETERNARY HOSPITALS-- DANVERS ANIMAL HOSP.. THE KENNEL UP THE ROAD -KENNEL CORP OF AMERICA- OLIVE GROWING AND BOOT REPAIR.... IT ALWAYS SOUNDS GOOD AT THE START AND THEN THINGS CHANGE AS THE BLOOD OF YOUR PROJECT GETS DRAINED TO SUPPORT THIS ARTIFICIAL "BUSINESS" OF OWNING BUSINESSES...
IT IS CLOSELY RELATEED TO BANKS ENCOURAGING YOU TO BORROW MONEY- YOU ARE THEN WORKING FOR THEM- AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO DO A THING... LIKE COMMUTE ... TO EARN A BUCK
I FIND IT VERY ANNOYING.
IN THE MEANTIME... WE ARE NOW TEH PROUD OWNERS OF ABOUT 30 STALL DOORS- AND I WONDEERED LONG ENOUGH TO THINK "HOW TO GET TEH HORSE STALL CRAPOLA OFF THESE DOORS SO WE CAN PAINT THEM... AS I WATCHED.. A CAR WASH CAME TO MIND.. THE KIND WHRE YOU PUT IN A QUARTER AND USE A WAND WITH SOAP THEN PLAIN WATER.-- WE DO HAVE A POWER WASHER.. BUT TEH CAR WASH WOULD BE ALOT EASIER..
FROM MY PAST.... I THINK THERE ARE CAR WASHES THAT HAVE A SIDE WASHER FOR TRAILERS ETC... NOW TO FIND ONE... TODAY... SO MAYBE IF TOMORROW IS EVEN A LITTLE WARM I CAN GET TANNER AND KEAGAN IN TYVEK SUITS SLIDING AROUND TEH DUMP TRAILER WASHING THOSE DOORS...
ONE OF TEH DOORS IS ON EXHIBIT IF THE PUPPY HILL CAMERA SWINGS AROUND-
PUPPIES ARE 4 WEEKS OLD AND LOUD.
