Boosting - Keys To Success

Posted by DONALD BISTRAN on June 18, 2015 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

 

 

Boosting - Keys To Success

- The highest value Boosting option is through the New User Boost. The New User Boost was introduced to help new users experience earnings and success more quickly. People with their New User Boost activated earn more from their posts (blogs, videos and photos), ads and all of their Boosts.

 

- Choosing the advanced option can yield higher returns for your Boosting portfolios, however it may take a good amount of trial and error before you reach your desired level of return on a consistent basis.

 

- Choosing the simple option can yield low to medium returns, but can be setup once and left alone if the auto re-Boost option is selected. This allows users to have a more hands-off approach to earning through Boosting.

 

- Keep re-Boosting ALL your earnings - delaying the desire for instant gratification -- to ensure that your money and earnings are always working as hard as you are.

 

- Make sure that you are a Power User so that you can attain the highest possible returns on your Boosting portfolios – among other ways to earn.

 

 

Boosting Reminder

 

No one can predict what Boost returns will be in the future.

 

FanBox cannot and does not make any guarantees or promises towards what anyone's return will be -- or even that it will be a positive return.

 

Remember, when you Boost, you are simply paying for Ads for advertisers -- and even though those ads are being served on a CPC (Cost Per Click) basis -- meaning that you only pay if there's a click - there are no assurances that the overall transaction will be a profitable one -- and so you could (and without a doubt, many people definitely do and will) incur a loss on those Ads and hence their boosts

There should be a yelp for places you visit in your sleep

Posted by DONALD BISTRAN on March 21, 2015 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Do you ever have dreams so real and bizarre that you are certain you must’ve actually been somewhere that exists because there is no way that place came from your head?

 

Because I have them sometimes and it’s very odd, and I always want to reach out and say, “Hey, has anyone else been to that safari-style petting zoo that was deserted 100 years ago because of a radiation leak? The one with the sad, balding wolves as big as bears who look at you with desperate eyes? The one where the unnaturally thick and muscular 8-foot flamingoes have taken over as the dominant alpha animal? And they stare down at you with dull, black eyes and disheveled, dirty feathers – more brown than pink – and their savage, cold, prehistoric stare tells you they are considering whether you are worth the energy they’d have to expend to kill you? And then the traveling house shows up (a house carried around on the backs of people so you can have tea and not pay property tax) and you think about hitching a ride but you don’t because you wake up and then the rest of the day you’re haunted by the eyes of those sad, battered wolves who were left behind to be play-toys for the perverse amusement of giant flamingoes?”

What is Medicare

Posted by DONALD BISTRAN on July 12, 2010 at 7:33 PM Comments comments (11)

Medicare is a social insurance program administered by the United States government, providing health insurance coverage to people who are aged 65 and over, or who meet other special criteria. The program also funds residency training programs for the vast majority of physicians in the United States. Medicare operates as a single-payer health care system.[1]

The Social Security Act of 1965 was signed into law on July 30, 1965, by President Lyndon B. Johnson as amendments to Social Security legislation. At the bill-signing ceremony President Johnson enrolled former President Harry S. Truman as the first Medicare beneficiary and presented him with the first Medicare card, and his wife Bess, the second.[2]

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), a component of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), administers Medicare, Medicaid, the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), and the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). Along with the Departments of Labor and Treasury, CMS also implements the insurance reform provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The Social Security Administration is responsible for determining Medicare eligibility and processing premium payments for the Medicare program.

The Chief Actuary of CMS is responsible for providing accounting information and cost-projections to the Medicare Board of Trustees in order to assist them in assessing the financial health of the program. The Board is required by law to issue annual reports on the financial status of the Medicare Trust Funds, and those reports are required to contain a statement of actuarial opinion by the Chief Actuary.[3][4]

Since the beginning of the Medicare program, CMS has contracted with private companies to operate as intermediaries between the government and medical providers.[5] These contractors are commonly already in the insurance or health care area. Contracted processes include claims and payment processing, call center services, clinician enrollment, and fraud investigation.

[edit] Taxes imposed to finance Medicare

Medicare is partially financed by payroll taxes imposed by the Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) and the Self-Employment Contributions Act of 1954. In the case of employees, the tax is equal to 2.9% (1.45% withheld from the worker and a matching 1.45% paid by the employer) of the wages, salaries and other compensation in connection with employment. Until December 31, 1993, the law provided a maximum amount of wages, etc., on which the Medicare tax could be imposed each year.[6] Beginning January 1, 1994, the compensation limit was removed. A self-employed individual must pay the entire 2.9% tax on self employed net earnings, but may deduct half of the tax from the income in calculating income tax.[citation needed]

[edit] Eligibility

In general, all persons 65 years of age or older who have been legal residents of the United States for at least 5 years are eligible for Medicare. However, if neither they nor their spouse have paid Medicare taxes for a minimum of 10 years (40 quarters), then they must pay a monthly premium to be enrolled in Medicare.[7]

Medicare part 'A' premiums are waived if the following circumstances apply:

They are 65 years or older and U.S. citizens or have been permanent legal residents for 5 continuous years, and they or their spouse has paid Medicare taxes for at least 10 years.

or

They are under 65, disabled, and have been receiving either Social Security benefits or the Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits for at least 24 months from date of entitlement (first disability payment).

or

They get continuing dialysis for end stage renal disease or need a kidney transplant.

or

They are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance and have amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease).

The 24 month exclusion means that people who become disabled must wait 2 years before receiving government medical insurance, unless they have one of the listed diseases or they are eligible for Medicaid.

Many beneficiaries are dual-eligible. This means they qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. In some states for those making below a certain income, Medicaid will pay the beneficiaries' Part B premium for them (most beneficiaries have worked long enough and have no Part A premium), and also pay for any drugs that are not covered by Part D.

In 2008, Medicare provided health care coverage for 45 million Americans,[8] making it the largest single health care payer in the nation.[citation needed] Enrollment is expected to reach 78 million by 2030, when the baby boom generation is fully enrolled.[8]

[edit] Alternative Options

If an individual has not yet met the Medicare eligibility requirements they may be able to enroll in alternative programs such as a temporary Health Insurance, a Medicare Bridge Plan, or a Travel Insurance policy if they recently moved to the USA.

[edit] Benefits

Medicare has four parts: Part A is Hospital Insurance. Part B is Medical Insurance. Medicare Part D covers prescription drugs. Medicare Advantage plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are another way for beneficiaries to receive their Part A, B and D benefits. All Medicare benefits are subject to medical necessity.

The original program was only Parts A and B. Part D was new in January 2006; before that, Parts A and B covered prescription drugs in only a few special cases.

[edit] Part A: Hospital Insurance

Part A covers inpatient hospital stays (at least overnight), including semiprivate room, food, tests, and doctor's fees.

Part A covers brief stays for convalescence in a skilled nursing facility if certain criteria are met:

1.A preceding hospital stay must be at least three days, three midnights, not counting the discharge date.

2.The nursing home stay must be for something diagnosed during the hospital stay or for the main cause of hospital stay.

3.If the patient is not receiving rehabilitation but has some other ailment that requires skilled nursing supervision then the nursing home stay would be covered.

4.The care being rendered by the nursing home must be skilled. Medicare part A does not pay for custodial, non-skilled, or long-term care activities, including activities of daily living (ADL) such as personal hygiene, cooking, cleaning, etc

Health

Posted by DONALD BISTRAN on June 17, 2010 at 8:03 PM Comments comments (0)

Health is the general condition of a person in all aspects. It is also a level of functional and/or metabolic efficiency of an organism, often implicitly human.

At the time of the creation of the World Health Organization (WHO), in 1948, health was defined as being "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity".[1][2]

Only a handful of publications have focused specifically on the definition of health and its evolution in the first 6 decades. Some of them highlight its lack of operational value and the problem created by use of the word "complete." Others declare the definition, which has not been modified since 1948, "simply a bad one." [1]

In 1986, the WHO, in the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, said that health is "a resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities." Classification systems such as the WHO Family of International Classifications (WHO-FIC), which is composed of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) also define health.

Overall health is achieved through a combination of physical, mental, and social well-being, which, together is commonly referred to as the Health Triangle

Helmut Lent (1918–1944) was a German night fighter ace in World War II who shot down 110 aircraft, 103 of them at night. Lent claimed his first aerial victories at the outset of World War II in the invasion of Poland and over the German Bight. During the invasion of Norway he flew ground support missions before he was transferred to the newly established Nachtjagdgeschwader 1 (NJG 1), a night fighter wing. Lent claimed his first nocturnal aerial victory on 12 May 1941 and on 30 August 1941 was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross for 22 aerial victories—8 daytime and 14 nocturnal aerial victories. His steady accumulation of aerial victories resulted in regular promotions and awards. On the night of 15 June 1944, Major Lent was the first night fighter pilot to claim 100 nocturnal aerial victories, a feat which earned him the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds on 31 July 1944. On 5 October 1944, Lent flew a Junkers Ju 88 on a routine transit flight from Stade to Nordborchen, 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Paderborn. On the landing approach one of the engines cut out, stalling the aircraft. All four members of the crew were mortally injured. Three men died shortly after the crash and Lent succumbed to his injuries two days later on 7 October 1944. (more...)
