  • Swede's Dock - New Kitchen after Sandy
    Okay let s take a ride We had GPS which took us into a kinda old time shabby seedy manufacturing area Hmmm what are we getting into here Anyway we park and go through a thick plywood door A cramped little space a receptionist couple chairs Hi Sit down and tell me what you are looking for said a pleasant young woman We told her and showed her our current floor plan Fine We can help you Why don t you wander around inside while I find someone to help you We go through this little door and step up to this WoW Nothing like the exterior that s for sure All kinds of kitchen layouts All kinds of cabinets We wander around maybe 10 minutes when a nice young man comes up and introduces himself He takes us around and shows us different details drawer slides lazy susans all the various ins and outs of the various grades of cabinets Explains the different grades qualities etc Spends maybe an hour He tells us a designer will be with us shortly We look around a little more when the receptionist came in and told us it will probably be a half hour or so before a designer will be free Would we like to go out and come back Nah ain t all that sure I want to be wandering around this neighborhood Nor am I all that sure we could even find our way back here So we sit down they bring us some coffee and rolls Later she comes back and tells us it will be at least another half hour If we like we could set up an appointment for another day Set aside 2 hours Well we waited this long so we waited some more We chatted with the receptionist and it turns out she s the business manager and the daughter of the owner The young man who showed us around was a cousin another cousin was the bookkeeper another uncle It was a family owned and run business since 1972 Everyone is on salary no one works on commission There are no sales incentives They handle lots all of the major cabinet manufacturers and have no incentive to push more expensive units Their interest is only to match the buyer s needs with his pocketbook Finally a young woman came out and introduced herself as Alyssa Don t know how she s related and would help us design a kitchen Took us into a room that held 5 more designers sitting at computers with customers Long story short she spent more than 4 hours with us designing on the computer taking us into the showroom s to show how various features looked worked differences between finishes woods type drawers etc In no way pushy extremely patient And we ended up with this By moving a couple walls and losing a couple closets we ended up converting a lot of what was not well used

  • Swede's Dock - Low Dose Naltrexone - LDN
    the immune system And the immune system plays a role in nearly everything going on in the body Lots more to it than that of course but a pretty fair capsule explanation I think Another later theory is that LDN activates receptors OGF s in our body that in turn moderate the immune system In any case LDN just works Wow If LDN is that good why doesn t the whole world know about it That got me to thinking Why is that And here s what I came up with Prescribing off label is risky for doctors in that they could be held liable if something goes wrong Most especially if there are no published read FDA approved clinical studies demonstrating the efficacy of the drug in particular circumstances There actually have been several clinical studies of LDN but the results have never been made public And if the doctor is in a group practice then the whole group could be liable Note a large scale clinical study can cost pick a number 10 000 000 100 000 000 500 000 000 drug company sources dubious at best As Naltrexone is long out of patent protection and is made in generic form by several companies around the world there would be no price protection mechanism for recovering the study cost There is great at least implicit pressure from drug companies to discourage doctors from prescribing drugs that are available generically And especially particularly a generic drug that could be used to cover a wide variety of diseases such as LDN does Maybe a doctor thinks if he prescribes LDN for whatever reason he will get fewer no drug samples of other drugs from the big drug distributors he can give out to needy patients It all makes sense however if you look at it from a jobs point of view rather than as just a greedy Big Pharma grab Take a look at these numbers just for MS alone 32 000 US Median income source http en wikipedia org wiki Persona United States 400 000 MS Patients http www numberof net number C2 A0 n C2 A0the us 14 400 000 000 Approved Annual Treatment costs for Copaxone 36 000 a year Copaxone is a commonly prescribed drug for MS but not the only one nor the most expensive And actually that number is low by 12 000 according to http www bloomberg com news 2011 0 ms drugs html Copaxone has gone up to 48k per year 14 400 000 000 generated potential if all 400 000 took it If only are 10 treated by Copaxone that still leaves 1 400 000 000 being spent That means the equivalent of 43 750 jobs are somehow one way or the other dependent on Copaxone being used at the US median income 1 4B divided by 32k per job Okay let s look at LDN if prescribed as a replacement for Copaxone for those same 40 000 patients 10 of

  • A O U - Pollution Abatement & Reduction Councils (PARC) FAQ
    that 90 of revenues be available for loans which leave a ceiling of 10 to limit bureaucracy growth 75 of the management structure comes from the private sector The 10 year sunset provision of the tax After that the program is completely self financing Q Isn t taxing food a dangerous precedent I don t like the concept of taxing food A Certainly that s always a danger In this case staples of life are not being taxed only a luxury item I really doubt that many lobsters scallops or salmon are being bought with food stamps or are part of School Lunch Programs It s been a long time since purchased seafood has been a staple of anybody s diet in this country Q AKA tax one food for one reason and maybe open the floodgate to a save the flowers tax on beef save the rivers tax on pork save the children tax on baby foods etc etc etc A As far as Saving the Flowers with a beef tax I probably wouldn t mind too much if the tax were limited to filet mignon as is effectively the case with PARC And I don t think even the most radical Keynesian economist would advocate taxing baby food Yes and there always WILL be good causes And if an outweighing benefit can be tied as closely to flowers and beef especially if it s only going to be filet mignon that will be taxed as the PARC tax then let s have it Now whether PARC could be used as a taxing precedent for other food taxes is of course a danger but I suggest to you if they are as carefully tied to a specific goal as PARC is it would not necessarily be a bad thing Don t forget the goal of PARC is to drive DOWN the cost of seafood And even that is only incidental to the real benefits Cleaner air Cleaner and more productive rivers and oceans for everybody not just commercial fishermen Q See everybody has a cause some are good solid causes like addressing water pollution while others are just fundraising schemes and unfortunately a lot of schemers have the political power to make crazy ideas into laws Look at the dolphin safe nightmare for example And one California lawmaker has a bill that would essentially mandate the use of Marine Stewardship Council a voluntary initiative style eco labeling for seafood sold in this state nightmare So I m reluctant about any food tax sets precidents that could drive up the price of food over the long term and not necessarily for the good of society or the environment A The KEY is the three factors answered above in the first question They ensure that PARC stays on track and doesn t get tied down in satisfying one particular interest s agenda As for the legislation being subverted that s of course always a danger but it cannot be allowed to
