Hospitals Continue to Face Bankruptcy

  • Posted on November 12, 2017 at 5:30 pm

A bad economy affects everyone; small businesses, large businesses, government jobs, government funded programs, everyone. Hospitals are no different. While many people look at hospitals as a public safeguard for our health, many people forget that hospitals are businesses too. And while all businesses need to at least break even to continue operating, a recent study found by the Wall Street Journal found that -more than 2,000 of the nearly 3,900 acute-care hospitals-studied don’t make a profit treating patients.-

With the economy still in trouble and many people losing their jobs and health insurance, hospitals take a major hit. If someone comes in with an emergency, say a gun shot or car accident, doctors do everything they can to save the life. You’re not asked for pre-payment or bank statements or even your insurance information. So hospital’s offer their services and are not always paid for them, especially in tough economic times. One bankruptcy attorney noted that hospitals are fighting the rising costs of healthcare as well as the decreasing -rates of reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid-and an increasing number of uninsured patients.- Hospitals have also been facing more competitors, as same-day surgery centers and walk-in clinics have become more popular.

More and more hospitals are taking desperate measures to try to stave off bankruptcy, but with incoming lawsuits, high salaries and pensions to pay, many hospitals are seeking refuge in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. As a Killeen and Waco bankruptcy attorney I can tell you that many hospitals are facing their troubles, but just two examples are the Hoboken University Medical Center’s operator Hudson Healthcare in New Jersey and New York’s St. Vincent Hospital.

In New Jersey, Hudson Healthcare declared bankruptcy, which is releasing their responsibility in paying the city an estimated $2 million, according to the Hudson Reporter. The bankruptcy has caused quite a bit of controversy, as the CEO, Spiros Hatiras received a $600,000 payout upon resigning while there are employees waiting on over $1.45 million in pension and health benefits.

New Jersey isn’t alone in their questionable budgeting practices. St. Vincent Hospital in New York is under investigation for fraud, as the District Attorney accused the Catholic charity hospital of purposely sinking their finances. According to the New York Post, the Hospital’s bankruptcy cleared the way to sell to a private developer. The developer planned to build a luxury community of the site. The New York Hospital also controversially paid two senior administrators $1 million each.

Unfortunately these hospitals have made some questionable decisions in their bankruptcies, but many others are struggling with operating costs and impending lawsuits. One Hospital in New Mexico is filing Chapter 11 based on the lawsuits alone. Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center is hoping that the bankruptcy will give them time to sort out the over 40 lawsuits against them.

Childrens Bookshelves – New Or Refurbish

  • Posted on November 12, 2017 at 4:55 pm

When purchasing childrens bookshelves you are restricted to manufacturer sizes and cost. When you make your own bookshelves, you can decide how big you want them to be and where you want them, all using just a few inexpensive materials. You can use almost any type of plank wood and thickness, but keep in mind the weight of the bookshelves and the things you will be putting of limited room space restrictions. Recycling old wood is a great idea for these types of projects and can be purchased at your local hardware store as special purchase item.

Childrens bookshelves quickly become disorganized and are not as simple to organize as adult bookshelves. Kids don’t know how to how to alphabetize their collection, especially the younger ones. Keeping this process simple is key to a neat and tidy system. If your children get overwhelmed with all the categorization rules, they will not put their books away correctly and you will ultimately face the same problem over and over again. Here are some easy ways to keep the chaos under control.

For older kids, this means keeping each series of books separate and easy to find. You can also separate them by type, such as, fantasy, mystery, etc. For the younger kids, get creative. You can use categories like animals, colors, shapes, nature, anything you can think of, or nothing at all. Simply having toddlers and preschoolers toss them into a basket and putting them on their assigned shelf is a task within itself.
Drake also suggests this simple tip to creating an original bookshelf: A ready-made plate rack. This can be easily transformed into a child’s bookshelf, displaying both toys and children’s books. You can also make your own shelves; just have all the wood cut to size at a lumberyard.

Yard sale finds can be a treasure in itself. An old bookshelf can be easily brought back to life. Start by lightly sanding down the top of the bookshelf with medium grit sandpaper, very lightly until it is no longer shiny. If you are going to paint more than just the top, be sure to sand any areas you wish to paint. Once the entire bookshelf has been lightly sanded, remove all dust with a tack cloth. (It is important that there is no excess sanding dust on the bookshelf before painting, or it can interfere with the paint.) Either stain of paint to fit your child personality or eaven add some favorite sports logos!

Global Animal Health Market Emerging Markets Driving Growth — Aarkstore Enterprise

  • Posted on November 12, 2017 at 12:49 pm

The animal health market is growing, albeit at a slower rate, in the recessionary economic phase. Two factors are working in favor of the industry – pet owners’ love for their companion animals and the economic reasons for the treatment of livestock or farm animals.

The -livestock- segment, a high-volume market that represents around 57% of the international animal health market is guided mostly by economic concerns as the market has to meet the growing demand in protein requirements in developing countries. Increase in demand for protein inevitably leads to increase in demand for food-producing animals.

Emerging markets such as Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia are witnessing an increase in share of the total pie of the animal health industry because of the increasing importance given to animal health by the livestock breeders. As these regions are showing very strong economic growth in the past few years, livestock breeders are giving due importance to the better management of livestock to cater to the growing nutritional needs of populations. But with various kinds of diseases reducing global animal production, animal healthcare is gaining significant importance. Emerging economies thus offer significant potential for animal health industry in the near future

The mature markets of North America and Western Europe, however, are supporting the growth of animal health market as these regions are characterized by strong growth, particularly in the -companion animals- sector.

The animal health market is highly concentrated, with the top nine players controlling more than 80% of the total market. Recent acquisitions of Fort Dodge (Wyeth) by Pfizer and Intervet by Schering-Plough have further consolidated the market.

The report titled -Global Animal Health Market: Emerging Markets Driving Growth- analyzes the two segments of animal health industry – companion animals and livestock or farm animals. The study explores the matured markets of UK and the UK and also the emerging markets of China, India and Brazil. The factors that are likely to drive the overall animal health market have been analyzed. Also, the performance of four major players – Pfizer, Schering-Plough, Merial and Bayer in the animal health industry has been assessed.

Further, we have predicted the future growth of the animal health market by combining SPSS Inc.’s data integration and analysis capabilities with our relevant findings. We employed various significant variables that have an impact on this industry and created regression models with SPSS to determine the future direction of the industry.

What is The Friends TV Show All About

  • Posted on November 12, 2017 at 10:00 am

Becoming somewhat of a classic show, Friends screened on television from the 22nd of September 1994, through to the 6th of May 2004. By the time the show ended it’s ten year cycle, more than fifty-two million viewers were tuning in each episode. After more than two hundred and thirty individual screenings, ten full seasons had been edited for television.

At the time of the last episode, Friends had amassed so many viewers that it was recorded as the episode that attracted the most attention in more than a decade, catapulting the show to the status of fourth most watched finale in television history. When the show finally came to a close, it remained ranked in the top ten television shows for a full week, and it is still considered to be one of the top television sitcoms in history.

So what is the Friends TV show? Well it was based around a small group of close friends living in Manhattan. Each episode was filmed at the Warner Brothers Studio, in front of an appreciative live audience. During its time on air, the show was nominated for an unprecedented sixty-three Primetime Emmy Awards. By the end of the series, a spin off show called “Joey” had been created.

The show would go to air every Thursday, for those who have not seen the show during it’s ten year stint on television. Friends was able to captivate its audience with laughter, sadness, and this meant that people would relive the previous nights show the following day, with their own friends, and work colleagues.

As with any show with this much appeal, of the six main characters that played their respective roles, there would always be reasons to love and hate them. Two of the main characters, Rachel Green and Monica Geller, were always the best of friends. These two characters were played by Jennifer Aniston, and Courtney Cox. Monica was known as the Mother hen to the whole group of friends, and Rachel was a fashion enthusiast. The third of the girls in the show was Phoebe Buffay who was played by Lisa Kudrow. She was not only a masseuse, but a very eccentric self taught musician.

David Schwimmer played the part of Ross Geller, Monica’s loving and protective brother. He worked as a palaeontologist at a local museum. Matt Le Blanc played the fifth character as Joey, a self professed womanizer, with loads of charm. Our last character, Chandler Bing, marries Monica in the seventh series, played by Matthew Perry.

Seven years on, the show is still being aired as reruns, and the DVD collection is available for people who enjoy watching episodes over and over. This show created a very large cultural impact. As an example of this, the Central Perk Coffee House has in fact inspired so many other coffee houses around the world.
