Flax Seed Recipes

It is a matter of concern and grave importance that obesity be eradicated from the face of this earth, and for that exact concern, you would find a lot of dietary supplements, as well as a lot of foods, that has actually been peddled by many multinational companies in order to boost their sales and ensure that you become the loyal customer. In this phase of global concern, I knew that a supplement has arrived in a market called Flax seed. Recipes of such that the supplements can be very handy to people who do not have the stomach to digest, such a product, and also they can ensure that people from all ages as well as people who are not into such dietary supplements can readily follow such a diet.

The Recipes

There are a many benefits of Flax seed. Recipes have upon us, and you would find a whole lot of information in the Internet about such dietary supplement. The highly Omega Three content that is present in the seed has been made of a high fiber content, and it is an essential ingredient in any supplement in diet plan that is being given to the health conscious people. In order for people to find this dietary supplement worthy of their palate, one must ensure to actually introduce a lot of recipes which can actually work with this kind of dietary supplement. The people who are actually health-conscious, would ingest this dietary supplement without any complaint, but for the people who have been introduced to this supplement, it would be a very hard time to ingest this product, as it is not of a very good taste, and you would need innovative recipes to ensure that you strictly follow this diet, in order to ensure that your health remains fine.

Ensuring That Your Diet is Palatable

You can then start adding warm water, and honey along with cinnamon in order to give it a very rich color, and make it more palatable for yourself. Remember to have the mixture as soon as you make it, or else the mixture would actually harden, and you would find it very difficult to eat. After having the mixture, ensure that your stomach is clean by washing it down with a glass of warm water.

How can I increase my vertical leap?

Recently I decided that I wanted to increase my vertical jump.  I play a lot of basketball at the local YMCA, and if I could increase my vertical leap I’d be able to have a lot more fun playing basketball, so I decided to look around and start doing some research and implement vertical jump training.

What I learned was very interesting, and not explained very clearly by a lot of people.

These are the main things I learned when I started trying to increase my vertical leap:

1)  Not all exercises are created equal.  Some exercises are designed to increase my vertical leap better than other exercises.

2)  A lot of people train incorrectly to increase their vertical leap.

3)  A lot of people will work hard, and will see minimal results due to the type of incorrect training they will be performing.  The problem is, you will feel like you are working hard, and in fact you WILL Be working hard, but not seeing the results you could be seeing because of training incorrectly.  When  I decided to increase my vertical leap I realized I had been making a lot of these mistakes that a lot of people discuss, and a lot of trainers teach.

4)  To increase my vertical leap I had to focus on a specific set of exercises.  These exercises that will help me increase my vertical leap are exercises that are designed to create and build a specific type of muscle fiber.

5)  Endurance training, while certainly healthy and beneficial, will not help me improve my vertical leap like I want it to.  Many people do endurance training, which will hinder the progress they could be seeing.

6)  I learned how important nutrition was in my question to increase my vertical leap.  Improper nutrition causes so many health problems…leading from cancer, obesity, heart disease but did you know the important role it can play in helping to increase vertical leaping ability?

Correctly nutritional habits will help you to build muscle, heal muscle, and help you to recover faster.  All of these things are extremely important as I learned in my quest to increase my vertical leap.

Correct nutrition will also help you recover from injuries faster and will help you avoid injuries–which are extremely important for people looking to increase their vertical leap quickly.

I decided I was ready to increase my vertical leap, so I bought the following program here.  It taught me the few things I was discussing above, and best of all I had absolutely positively no risk at all.

If you are ready to quickly increase your vertical leap I recommend you check out this program.  It will help you to increase your vertical leap which will bring you a lot of joy in playing basketball, volleyball, and even other sports.  Don’t make the mistake that so many people make in working hard, but doing the wrong work.  No matter how hard you work, if you are doing the wrong training you won’t reach your goals.

Buying Private Health Insurance – Know Your Priorities

Okay, so you need to buy health insurance for yourself and your family. What is your first priority in getting health insurance? Is it the coverage, the cost, or any other aspect that is the most important? When obtaining private health insurance from an insurance provider, you need to set your priorities before you even begin looking for an ideal health insurance plan. If you are clear as to what you really require and why you need it, your task of finding a suitable policy becomes that much easier.

People often buy health insurance taking into account the price they will be paying. They usually prefer to go to a private health insurance company that can offer them an affordable policy with the essential coverage. But, the main deciding factor for them is the price they will be paying.

Likewise, there are other customers who look for the best coverage they can get. They would like the insurance company to take care of all the medical expenses without having to pay more from their own finances. In other words, they want a very low deductible but are willing to pay a little extra premium each month so that their private health insurance plan affords the maximum coverage.

Before buying health insurance, it is advisable to assess your budget, your needs and your reason to buy the private health insurance policy you are interested in. Each individual situation is different – what is suitable for your friend may not be suitable for you. So, ensure that you understand your priorities before opting for a health insurance plan.

Preserving Local Control over Charitable Assets in the Face of National Industry Consolidation

Common Goals is pleased to introduce HEALTH LAW NOTES with this overview of some key issues which many hospital executives and board members will be facing as the new millennium approaches. Once the decision to consolidate with a regional or national partner is made, whether on the basis of advantage or due to perceived need, those governing a local hospital must address a raft of issues related to the future of charitable assets which have a decidedly local history. In this article, Mr. Nash reports on recent regulatory initiatives and one model which has actually enhanced local charitable activity. Future issues of HEALTH LAW NOTES will highlight key regulatory developments, landmark legal decisions and current strategic issues which have legal implications.

As we approach the year 2000, consolidation is transforming the face of health care finance and delivery. Whether driven by regional “turf battles”, the growth of the “for-profit” sector or simply by the desire to achieve greater efficiencies, market forces continue to foster acquisitions, mergers, joint operating agreements and other forms of affiliation. This is true across the full spectrum of the industry. Hospitals, physicians and managed care organizations are all participants in the process.

As the rate of hospital consolidation seemingly accelerates, it is not surprising that both federal and state regulators are showing increasing interest in whether the historically charitable nature of hospital assets is receiving short shrift. But while the regulators have a legitimate interest in focusing on issues such as “valuation” and “continued charitable dedication”, recent experience shows that properly structured consolidations can actually enhance local charitable missions.

In the face of the recent rash of proposed acquisitions and mergers of currently non-profit hospitals in California, the state legislature has enacted the California Non-Profit Public Benefits Corporation Law. This law took effect on January 1,1997, as part of an effort to strengthen the state’s authority over conversion or sale of non-profit health facilities to for-profit firms. The California Attorney general has just issued companion guidelines that will require nonprofits to prepare a ” health impact statement” and to demonstrate that they have considered alternatives like mergers or alliances with other nonprofits before sale or conversion to “for-profit status” will be approved.

The legislation stems from concerns that as the number of sales or other conversions accelerates, the public is being short-changed by undervaluation of the non-profit facility’s assets, which typically revert to a charitable foundation as part of such a transaction. The key issue is whether the non-profit entity’s assets, or its “going concern” value, are “marked to market”, or whether the value was merely the subject of private negotiation. From discussions with the California Attorney General’s Office, it is apparent that they will look closely at whether the non-profit facility has been “aggressively marketed” in an effort to generate multiple bids and thus maximize value. Concern is justified in view of a number of recent California transactions in which “negotiated value” has proved to be substantially less (sometimes less than half) of “market value.”

The non-profit entity will also have to show that it thoroughly considered “all realistic alternatives”, including mergers and/or strategic alliances with other locally and regionally based non-profit entities, as well as alternative forms of transactions (e.g., sales of assets, joint operating agreements, leases or management agreements) with potential for-profit partners. In the case of hospitals that are part of an integrated delivery system, an evaluation of the transaction and its impact on each non-profit component of the IDS will be required.

The new California law also authorizes the state attorney general to consider the broader public policy issue of whether the transaction is in the public interest. This includes a determination of whether the transaction will “affect the availability or accessibility of health care in the affected community.” Accordingly, non-profits seeking to change status will have to prepare and file a “health impact statement.”

This increased level of regulatory interest in protecting historically charitable assets/operations is further exemplified by the precedent setting agreement announced at the end of January between Central Benefits Mutual Insurance Co. (“CBMI”) formerly Blue Cross of Central Ohio and the Ohio state attorney general’s office. In a “first of a kind” agreement, CBMI has agreed to fund a new foundation, dedicated to providing care for the indigent, in the amount of $5,100,000. This amount represents the “net asset value” of Blue Cross of Central Ohio, in 1987, the year it converted from a non-profit corporation to a mutual insurance company by consolidating with CBMI.

The focus of the Internal Revenue Service runs parallel to that of the several state attorneys general, and centers generally on the integrity of an organization’s tax-exempt status, and prohibition of the diversion of charitable assets from the tax-exempt purposes to which they are supposed to be dedicated. Over the last few months, the IRS has issued a number of private letter rulings dealing with the continued viability of the tax-exemption of organizations formerly operated as hospitals, and the tax-exempt bonds they issued prior to sale or conversion. More recently, the IRS has promised guidance on the topic of “whole hospital joint ventures.”

When regulators flex their muscle, the courts inevitably pop into the picture. For example, in January, a Michigan Circuit Judge confirmed with written opinion an earlier “bench ruling” that a non-profit hospital’s proposed joint venture with Columbia Healthcare Corporation would violate a state law prohibiting the mingling of non-profit and for-profit assets. Similar prohibitions are also at issue in a joint venture with Columbia proposed by California based Sharp Health System, and the Ohio attorney general is actively opposing a number of proposed transactions.

This increasing involvement of various state attorneys general is benefitting from some coordination through their national association. Some are speculating that California’s new law will serve as a prototype for other states. Certainly, the law in many states could benefit from additional clarification as to the nature of the non-profit hospital as a charitable trust and the non-profit board’s twin duties of “care” and “loyalty.” For example, unlike California, most states lack specific guidance as to whether non-profit boards must seek the highest possible price, or whether noneconomic factors can also be considered.

Notwithstanding all of this regulatory activity, there is a substantial body of post-transaction experience now, some of it very encouraging, associated with non-profit sales and conversions. For example, consider the 1995 joint venture between Columbia and The Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine Health System. Recent discussions with Peter G. Reibold, who was CEO of the System and is now the President of the Ohio Division of Columbia CEO, disclosed that by careful segregation of assets and functions, the parties managed to satisfy the “hard to please” Ohio attorney general.

Perhaps more importantly, the Sisters report a substantial increase, post transaction, in the actual amount of “charitable assets” available for use for traditionally charitable purposes such as care of the indigent. This was accomplished at the bargaining table, then carefully documented, and results primarily from the segregation and retention of complete future control, in the hands of the Sisters, of the “deal value” of the formerly charitable assets and operations. The same techniques are available to local non-profit boards concerned with the erosion of local control over their “local” charitable assets.

This careful approach to preserving future control over the charitable “deal value” of a conversion transaction holds substantial promise against increasing regulation of the massive movement of non-profit health care entities and their assets to for-profit status.

Our Ideas

So it’s no secret that here at DWID Towers we’d love to see a reboot of the Doctor Who franchise, ideally in the form of a theatrically released movie.

The plot we’re working on explains the origins of The Doctor and his relationship with humanity. It also serves to introduce us to Davros and the Daleks, as well as the role of Time Lords in the political machinations of the universe .

To that end we’ve written an outline and an opening monologue. Have a read and see what you think.

Over four and a half billion years ago – while your world was still being formed – we were taking our first steps into the vast reaches of space.

Five hundred million years later – while life was only just forming in your oceans – we had conquered space and had unravelled the secrets of the universe.

By the time that your species had evolved we had long since mastered inter-dimensional travel and had developed machines and sciences that allowed us to travel through time and dimensions in space with the greatest of ease.

And now, now when we finally meet, as your species is just beginning its interstellar journey. You face your greatest challenge.

This is my story and the story of how I met you and saved you.
