  2. Dementia care has become more problematic than ever as people are living longer, so higher chance to succumb at some point in their lives. Everyone knows the staggering cost associated with NOB care facilities, with some families forced to send loved ones south for affordable care that eludes them any other way. Sadly, this can mean little or no familial contact from that point on. So I'm thrilled to share this Vancouver Island news story (June 14/22)as an example of what CAN and SHOULD be able to happen almost anywhere. Following a concept created in Europe, B.C. is applying it vigorously. Fingers crossed it becomes the "new normal" in many other places everywhere. And take special note that all but one bed will be publicly funded!! (Yes, that will mean a "means test", but that's been the case in gov't-run care homes in Canada for decades and certainly allowed my low-income aunt to live out her years in comfort and safety.) https://vancouverisland.ctvnews.ca/construction-of-first-dementia-village-on-vancouver-island-begins-1.5946761 Go B.C.!!

  5. We don't need to. Confident, secure and mature adults do not need to validate their self-worth. It is sad and somewhat concerning that you need to do so endlessly. There are many online mental health care providers available that may be able to help you.

  9. First of all, "ignorant" is not an insult. It doesn't mean stupid, it means that someone does not have knowledge about a subject. We are all ignorant on thousands of topics. Pointing out that someone is wrong about something is done by posting relevant information, not by asserting that you are right by bragging about one's past accomplishments. One's past is only relevant if it relates to the topic at hand. Someone who worked as a construction contractor being qualified to opine on construction for example. Their past as a construction contractor is entirely irrelevant in proving that their opinions on Covid must be valuable.

  10. Dude I have did more educated things in my life then you have. College is not the only education. 43 certifications multiple cost in the 40k range to get. Never hear what great intellectual stuff you did in your life! Lol talk to me when you can show a sign of doing anything intellectual yourself. Your great comedy

  11. https://fullfact.org/health/nhs-data-covid-vaccine-side-effects/US Military personal are not having adverse affects from being vaccinated. More right wing fake news as usual. Menu Donate HEALTH / CORONAVIRUS "False US military health data misrepresented as NHS figures 8 FEBRUARY 2022 WHAT WAS CLAIMED Incidences of heart attacks, Bell’s palsy, congenital malformations, female infertility, pulmonary embolisms, neurological abnormalities and cancers have increased dramatically, according to NHS data. OUR VERDICT The figures published in the social media post are based on false US military data, not NHS data. A post on Instagram claims that incidences of health conditions such as female infertility, neurological abnormalities and cancers have dramatically increased, citing figures claimed to have come from the NHS. It’s not clear what time period the post covers, but the inclusion of conditions such as Bell's palsy and myocardial infarction (a heart attack) mirrors other posts we’ve fact checked before making claims about links between these conditions and the Covid-19 vaccine roll out. There’s no evidence that any of the figures stated in the post are accurate, and we could find no trace of the statistics being published by the NHS. A search for these statistics online show that they have also been shared on Twitter, with links to an article on an American website headlined: “Whistleblowers share DOD [Department of Defense] medical data that blows vaccine safety debate wide open”. This article, which claims that US military personnel have seen a huge rise in a number of health conditions and explicitly ties these to Covid-19 vaccines, contains the exact figures listed in the Instagram post. It’s extremely likely that this article, or similar reporting, is in fact the data source in question—not the NHS. It has since been reported by fact checkers PolitiFact that these figures, extracted from the Defense Medical Epidemiology Database (DMED), were a result of a glitch in the database. The data had been cited by an Ohio lawyer, representing three “whistleblowers” during a panel discussion on Covid-19 vaccines on 24 January. Peter Graves, spokesperson for the Defense Health Agency’s Armed Forces Surveillance Division, told PolitiFact that "in response to concerns mentioned in news reports" the division reviewed data in the DMED "and found that the data was incorrect for the years 2016-2020." The error in the data was the result of the correct 2021 figures on the incidence of health conditions being compared to an inaccurate five-year average, which “represented only a small fraction of actual medical diagnoses” and so gave the false impression of a significant increase in 2021. Mr Graves told Politifact that the DMED system had been taken offline to “identify and correct the root-cause of the data corruption." "

  12. https://www.factcheck.org/2021/12/scicheck-article-makes-unfounded-claims-linking-athletes-injuries-deaths-to-vaccines/ Athletes are not having adverse affects from being vaccinated. Simply right wing fake news made up lies, as usual. "Article Makes Unfounded Claims Linking Athletes’ Injuries, Deaths to Vaccines By Eugene Kiely, Saranac Hale Spencer, Brea Jones and Tess Hancock Posted on December 17, 2021 THIS ARTICLE IS AVAILABLE IN BOTH ENGLISH AND ESPAÑOL English Español SciCheck Digest Many U.S. athletes have been vaccinated against COVID-19 without any adverse effects. But a conservative outlet has cited a list of supposedly vaccine-injured athletes to claim “there may be something wrong with the vaccine.” There’s no proof that the listed athletes — most of them are actually retired — were harmed by the vaccines. How do we know vaccines are safe? What side effects should you expect if you get a COVID-19 vaccine? Full Story Professional athletes in some of America’s most popular leagues are, for the most part, vaccinated against COVID-19: 94.4% of players in the NFL are vaccinated, about 95% in the NBA, and more than 99% in the NHL. Like the more than 200 million Americans who have been fully vaccinated, most athletes didn’t report serious side effects. But a bogus claim has been circulating on social media that a rash of athletes have either been injured or died from the vaccines. Reuters wrote about a version of this claim that centered on soccer players. We’ll focus on a claim from the conservative outlet Gateway Pundit, which featured a list of athletes, compiled by goodsciencing.com, who supposedly suffered vaccine-related injuries or death. Good Sciencing, a website that is run anonymously, claims to track instances of “young athletes who had major medical issues in 2021 after receiving one or more COVID vaccines.” According to the Gateway Pundit, the list “shows that there may be something wrong with the vaccine if the world’s greatest athletes suffer or die after taking the vaccines.” More than 300 athletes — including students, professionals, amateurs and retirees — from around the world were included. We reviewed publicly available information for each of the 19 professional athletes who either came from or played in the U.S. We found no proof of a causal relationship in any of the cases between the vaccines and the injuries or deaths. We also found: Despite the description of them as “athletes,” 13 of the 19 were retired from their sport. Although Good Sciencing claims COVID-19 vaccines were to blame for the deaths or injuries, the website provides no evidence in most cases — 16 of the 19 — that the athletes and former athletes were even vaccinated. While in most cases the cause of death or injury remains unknown, we found several cases in which the men or their families point to other causes, such as medical histories. In one case, a former hockey player had been struggling with a drug addiction and died of an overdose, not from a vaccine. There were two cases in which athletes claimed that they had suffered an adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine, but in one of those cases the athlete retracted his claim."

  13. But the daughter won't be able to sell it without her mothers signature on the back of the Factura. Honestly she might want to write her mom's signature if it isn't there in order to avoid long legal process of inheriting the car the car first . ( yes, probably illegal ) but nobody is getting hurt

  18. Perhaps the guy is some kind of scammer or perhaps he did make an honest mistake. Sounds to me like both parties are taking an adversarial approach, rather than trying to come to some equitable terms. The homeowner should price out what the materials she used costs at other places, to get an idea of whether he is just trying to scam her, or she really did get much more expensive materials at a ridiculously low price. I couldn't in good conscience take advantage of someone's legitimate error, if that happened to be the case.

  19. My aunt paid $750 in BC (1998-2002) due to her low income. Yes, rates were based on "means test" and this happened all across Canada (and still does) . Wonderful facility. But what's interesting about this new concept is how it's laid out, how people will be in "homes of 12", and a lot more activities including helping in the kitchen if you so desire etc. that MAY lead to decline taking much longer.

  23. A couple of Mexican workers are not responsible for this. They would not necessarily have any idea what materials the homeowner ordered nor how much they should cost, nor would they have any idea how much the homeowner paid for them. Your NOB ideas do not apply to how things work in Mexico.

  24. https://denvergazette.com/news/judge-scraps-75-year-fda-timeline-to-release-pfizer-vaccine-safety-data-giving-agency-eight/article_f007b8b4-ad66-59b4-a270-4709bc3e4814.html "Judge scraps 75-year FDA timeline to release Pfizer vaccine safety data, giving agency eight months Kaelan Deese, Washington Examiner Jan 7, 2022 The Food and Drug Administration won't have 75 years to release thousands of pages of documents it relied on to license its COVID-19 vaccine. Instead, the federal agency will have just over eight months to do so, per a federal judge's ruling. The timeline ordered Thursday by U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman radically shortens the timeline under which the FDA has to produce troves of documents. The order stems from a Freedom of Information Act document lawsuit by a coalition of doctors and scientists with the nonprofit Public Health and Medical Professionals for Transparency. The group seeks an estimated 450,000 pages of material about the vaccine-creation process during the COVID-19 pandemic, which came into full force in the United States in March 2020. Rather than producing 500 pages a month, the FDA's proposed timeline, Pittman ordered the agency to turn over 55,000 a month. That means all the Pfizer vaccine data should be public by the end of September rather than the year 2097, the deadline that the FDA wanted." Can you ever quote something about any aspect of the Covid-19 situation that is actually true?

  26. All the years I was in charge of telecom Construction we did private work. And if I messed up I would have had to eat it. It's not the customers job to check materials. It's the contractor job. So how things have always worked with means it's on the contractor. He should have checked himself or had a worker he trusted on site. But I ran a very tight ship and my customers always left happy.

  28. What they made ups for 😀. Been thinking about buying land and build what we want... and you read my mind fiber thru the house in place of copper. But install a wall battery unit 14k ish where the solar charges it first then rest is sent out to the grid. And a switch that senses when power goes out and then routes all power to the home thru the wall battery unit. Best of both worlds since it's like 53 peso every 2 months to keep access to the grid here.

  31. IMO it is his problem. She paid him apparently in full for what she ordered, he delivered the wrong stuff and now wants to get paid more. I wouldn't let him remove it either until he gave her back the money she gave him. Otherwise she'll end up with no material. Sounds like the job is done. His problem, not hers. But I hope she has something in writing otherwise it is her word against his and this generally doesn't go well when the dispute is between expat and Mexican. If in fact what he provided is better and worth more, maybe she could offer to split the difference.

  32. Yes, true, but if the electric is out, meaning you can't charge the phone, it will use up the battery. Years ago, when I bought a new laptop at Office Depot, it came with an extra perk of a small battery pack. I never would have thought of purchasing such a thing, but I have used it many times to get phone or laptop juice when the electric has gone out for extended periods of time and keep it charged up.

LOL You are wasting your time with this bunch. The bad news about their jabs will just keep piling up. Enjoy the ride and be glad you didn't take these"vaccines" that neither prevent getting or spreading and last for a few months. Problem is the damage they do seems to be lasting a great deal longer. But that is their problem, not ours.

  38. Only a small group are all anti Vax. But this covid Vax has made more people not trust the govt. If you opened your mind and read all the threads and articles where people give there names then talk about the family and close friends who died from Vax side effects. And how doctors will not talk about it. Because they know they will lose there job if they speak the truth. The liberal hoard will March in and have the govt make sure they lose there job and livelihood. High-school coaches are screaming about all the side effects because they are seeing healthy teenagers get blood clots and enlarged hearts en mass short after getting the Vax. But your brain only receives messages from the liberal fascist dem party. So you won't even see what is happening in the real world. In the military these are military hunters Vax reactions are up 1100%! And the lt who is a specialized with a degree in this area who released the armies numbers got booted for it. Why? Because they don't want people to see the facts. One if the Vax makers asked to hide the studies on the Vax for 75 years! That just shoes how afraid of the truth they are.
