    Crises Pay

    I just did a quick search (looking at a travel contract right now). I found apts and hotels for under 1500 a month and some hotels even have free breakfast. Just look outside of Manhattan area.
  2. OK, so let's say the death rate is only 1%. I place a bowl of 100 M&M's in front of you and tell you that one is actually cyanide and will kill you. Would you take the chance and eat one?

    Moving TO Houston, TX area; SOS

    You can get a Texas license first

    SINGLE STATE LICENSE

    The answer is simple. Apply for a Texas license by endorsement. Your Florida license will get you a Texas license. Furthermore Florida is a compact state, untill your Texas license comes in, you can work in Texas. I know of several nurses from the Philippines that have done that with no problem.

    Joint Commission Citing & Employee Files

    Remember TIC IS NOT A GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY!!! They are a private company that gives a "certification" thtvsays you meet their standards. Legally insurance companies and Medicare cannot even ask if you are TJC certified and cannot deny payment based on lack of certification.

    Is this even Legal?

    Simple,. Call in sick that day. Let them worry about the staffing.

    Are You Ready?

    Another few things to have (living in Gulf Coast Texas) are a small charcoal grill, aluminum foil and several large bags of charcoal, lighter fluid for them and MATCHES!!! At least you will be able to cook your food if there is a prolonged power outage.

    Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    Because the fun is NOT a factor. It is simply the item chosen to do the deed.

    Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    What could be more straight than I won't give up my guns ever. Not to you, not to the the police or even the government. When they start to try confiscations by police, then we have become a totalitiarian society and it is our duty to stand up to it. I would fight and die for my rights and yours. I spent many years in the military doing just that. Oh wait...according to some in power that makes me onenof the largest group of terrorists. A white, ex military male gun owner...

    Understanding the Risk of Firearms: Suicide vs. Homicide

    You can have my guns when you can pry them from my dead cold hands...but try and take them before then and see what happens.
