• In Canada what do you have to pay out of pocket when you give birth in a hospital to your newborn baby?

That doesn't include Caesarian or special added delivery complications that's the minimum If can cost $45,000 as many services are excluded from plan coverage and denied on a case by case basis with strict criteria to qualify for coverage, Insurance premiums for healthcare are around $650/month for families and almost all of the first $6,500 of medical anything you pay out of pocket every year Is this similar in Canada? Does this sound affordable?

    In the line at the store, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day." The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment." She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day. Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But we didn't have the green thing back in our day. We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks. But she was right. We didn't have the green thing in our day. Back then, we washed the baby's Nappies because we didn't have the throw-away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that lady is right; we didn't have the green thing back in our day. Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she's right; we didn't have the green thing back then. We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But we didn't have the green thing back then. Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service. We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the green thing back then? Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smartass young person @ Mulga...I remember those things very well too...particularly the day the thunderbox can was replaced when you hoped like heck that the guy didn't slip on the way to the cart , as happened occasionally ! lol I really must be a dinosuar ,,,,we have ALWAYS had chooks , fruit trees & a veggie garden ...old habits die hard I guess ! @ C M C ...Yeah , we have those bags here as well... GREEN bags ! lol @ Mintie..I claim no credit for this but thought it worth posting as a matter of interest...yes , I'm a dinosaur & still have chooks , a decent veggie garden ( credits to my wife ) & hang on dearly to many values long since abandoned by our so called liberated society ..

The report was very in depth, they collected over 800,000 statistics through the 6 years to end end of 2009, and each was carefully examined by an international consortium of 1000 researchers and scientists over a further 2 year period to analyse whether or not they are actually useful for people to know, and also how much time researches waste on these apparently useless results coming from 77.6% of statistics. What do you think about this apparent danger, should we be worried? Or does it not matter? Apparently allot of those statistics were found to have been the result of often years of data collection and thousands of subjects. Seems like a bit of a waste of people's resources. irony detectors on please

    I have a small farm. Who ever is buying your produce goes by a set price for that particular produce. Government sets those prices and standards. So the only difference would be the profit greedy farmers are making. Just an example: If the government is paying $2.00 for a bushel of apples, and I am paying my American help $1.00 a bushel for picking them, but another unscrupulous farmer is paying illegals 50 cents a bushel. Who is winning? It is the unscrupulous farmer, but it does not take and make the price of the produce rise. Don't you agree? What if they offered an amnesty, do you honestly think these workers would still work for the same price? Wouldn't that unscrupulous farmer get rid of them if they demanded to be paid going wage? So explain to me how produce would rise? And I have never had any trouble finding Americans to work on our farm. I have to turn many, many away! Yes David they do. I have a contract with my state govenrment for produce, They are used for schools, government programs like SHARE, meals on Wheels and many more. And I have 15 Americans who work for me. so bullsh*t on those who say Americans do not work them. As I said, no farm around here hires illegals, the farm next to mine is large, he hires over 100 Americans. Americans!!

  • Why do some people say "I could care less"?

    Saying "I could care less" implies that you actually care, since it would be possible for you to care less. When you say something like that, I think you're trying to imply that you don't care at all, which would be "I couldn't care less".

    What is the exact criteria for asian people between the age of 18 - 30 to be granted a student visa for entry into australia. What exact documentation is needed and what proof that the applicants are actually taking up a form of education in australia is required. Are all student visas issued for a minimum period. What is that period and do student visas all include permission to work while studying. How is income tax calculated and monitored for holders of student visas if and when they include permission to work and if they are self employed are students issued with an ABN (australian business number) for taxable puposes ? There is widespread yet quite covert criminality involved and false information being put forward to the australian immigration department in connection to this particular type and category of visa. The law is definitely being conveniently flouted. The main focus of my awareness to this is upon the Melbourne licenced brothel business which provides gainful employment to many holders of student visas who are involved in a solely cash payment form of remuneration. It is my knowledge that within this type of organisation pre arranged assistance for easily obtaining visas is provided in order to supply a regular compliment and variable turnover of staff. The successful visa holders are also presented with an extortionate amount of repayment debt to the provider. So as well as informing the department what other methods of awareness and publicity in australia could you suggest to ensure that the australian immigration department investigates much further into the high number of "students" being assisted with falsified visa appilications. These easily obtained visas are giving entrance into australia for young people who are entering under false pretences who are working illegally and who are being exploited. As this matter has been raised before several times and brought to the attention of the australian authorities can australians explain why no action has been taken and the illegal entrants are still succeeding in getting through. Who can assist in steering this important issue and potential security risk to australia into the hands of the appropriate authorities who may deal with this more effectively. Are there no follow up checks carried out on students to ascertain that holders of study visas are in fact truthfully engaged in education and that if they are working then is it within the legal limits set out under the visa conditions. Or do we have a situation here of one set of rules opposed to another and a blind eye being turned ? If the immigration department are choosing to ignore the matter then who else would you suggest it is reported to in order to achieve investigations and tighter monitoring of entrants who are being exploited and assisted in an organised way to enter the country falsely and work illegally ? Oh whoopee. The penny finally drops. And still you make weak excuses. DIAC investigators only need to walk through the door. No trapped scantily clad young lady is going to run up the street and not be found are they ? But the victims shouldnt be punished and they will lead the DIAC to the ring leaders easily. Once while dangerously infiltrating all this I asked a slimy regular punter (who quote " liked the young ones" his own drunken words as I purposely got him blind on shots in Crown Casino) what was his place of employment. Answer ? The Migration Review Tribunal !!!!! That is a true story. As for hating to agree with what I say you should hang your head in shame for constantly applauding on here a flawed and immoral laughing stock of an immigration system. Fascists ! A royal commission is long overdue ! Open your email link .Theres much more. What are you afraid of I'm one of the good guys ?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iGNhgMd6... LOL ??

    I have an Australian flag hanging in my room (even though i'm American, and because i don't have enough room to hang it normally i have it hanging from my ceiling by the little holes that would normally attach it to the pole. I know in the horizontal position the Jack would be on the left side, but when it's vertical like that should it be on the left or right? I currently have it hanging on the right side, because it seemed logical, i just wanna make sure. Joan, no, not really, it is a full sized flag after all, and i have a fairly large room, on one wall i can't fit it because it has my door plus 2 double-door sliding-doored closets, the next wall has a window, and is covered in posters, and has the entertainment center and a giant clock on it the 3rd wall has a large set of windows, with about 3 1/2 feet on each side, i have the flag hanging vertically on the left side of the windows, and the 4th wall simply has no room, it has shelves and other furniture against it.
