According to a recent poll on Fox News, voters are already starting to talk about  which states the voter wants kicked out of the union. They conducted an interesting study asking the common voter a question such as, “What if you could boot other states out of the union? Surprisingly, almost 2x as many voters, 17% liked that idea. Secondly, the interview also asked voters, “Which state would be the 1st voted out of the union? The percentage out of the voter group that answered the question, fifty-three percent chose the Golden State. Coming in 2nd place, the state of New York was twenty-five percent and Texas came in at twenty percent. Last on the list of states to be voted out was Florida coming in at eleven percent. One of the voters, Chris Anderson, observed that most of the voters who wanted to have a state kicked out “appeared to have presidential politics in mind.” Anderson also stated that “the top 4 states targeted for expulsion, are the 4 most electronically rich states in the country.” Now some may argue this could be a biased opinion but by looking at the nature of the subject it is hard not to be. A major reason Democratic states end up on the slicing block of the Republicans, 21%, are more likely that Democrats at 13% to want to vote out a state. There was also additional information about Republicans and independents being 3x as likely as Democrats to want their state to secede. This is a very interesting poll but there should be more statistics with the poll by stating the total number participating and possibly demographics such as age and gender.

Here is a nice video on the process for voters:


The Obamacare is Getting Defensive!


Obama blasts Fox News over Obamacare

I am sure most people can remember the anticipation of the new health care reform policy coming in place from President Obama in 2014. Well the health care reform made it in place despite the major issues and confusion the website caused many Americans that are trying to avoid a tax penalty that will be owed if failure to sign up for bronze, silver, or gold option. The insurance premium fluctuates with the financial status of the individual and family. There still hasn’t been enough debate whether Obama’s plan has saved millions in healthcare. On the other hand, what is it like to be on the patient care side of Obamacare. When a person sighs up for a healthcare reform plan,a list of doctors are generally available on the insurance provider’s website. However, what about instances of a general trip to a hospital. Healthcare has still remained a strong industry due to the number of baby boomers needing medical treatment. Nowadays, the kids of the baby boomers are aspiring to be one of the highest paid healthcare workers in America. Among the highest paid right below a physician, the salary of a physician assistant can expect to bring in around 100k in top paying states. The physician assistant or PA can first expect to complete a program from a list of the accredited pa schools in the United States. Next, the nurse practitioner salary is also a highly compensated healthcare worker that can also fetch a six figure salary in states such as California. Within the hospitals receiving new healthcare reform plans affect the salary of registered nurse  that also brings around 50k in common states. With Obamacare, what about the cost of RX drugs that will be needed by new health care reform participants. Luckily, the salary of a pharmacist still remains a strong healthcare comp package that can respectively earn a cool 100k+ every year. With a growing number of  insurance holders because of the mandatory healthcare insurance law, many doctors offices are expecting a huge increase in the number of “walk-in” patients. There will be a major demand for experienced medical assistants that also earn a reasonable amount but the salary of a medical assistant employed directly by hospitals can benefit from a “self-insured” organization for cheaper medical insurance.


Financial Challenge For Healthcare Reform

With the BLS or United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, accounting careers are playing and important role in healthcare facilities and hospitals across the states.  With Obamacare approaching soon, it is important for labor and taxes to be checked and in compliance to make sure workers are placed in the correct status to receive proper healthcare insurance.  The types of accountants in a hospital is just as important in a major software company.  The GAAP rules apply to every type of organization whether the business or service exists to be for-profit or not-for-profit.  Since hospitals can have several tax id’s and units, auditors, financial and managerial accountants are imperative for the survival of an organization. There will be a number of accountants and financial analysts tracking the revenues and reimbursement income from healthcare insurance providers. What these accountants do in the future will depend on the number of of financial bottlenecks as an effect from the new healthcare reform act and will definitely increase the salary of accountants.

FDA Approved Drugs For Receding Hairline Treatment

Over the years there has always been a big following of top pharmaceutical companies patenting promising cures for popular hair and skin conditions. The only FDA products for preventing and regrowing hair is Propecia or Finasteride,  Minoxidil or Rogaine, and the Lasercomb.

Finasteride for hair loss is an ant-androgen hair loss drug made specifically for men that lowers the amount of DHT found on the patient’s scalp.

Controversial RC Helicopter and Quadcopters For Research

It has become at least a monthly topic in the news with the FAA regulations with drone/quadcopters flying near public areas. Some of the best quadcopter models are fully equipped with GPS navigation, video footage, and still-shot capability. The FAA really doesn’t have a problem with these small UAV’s as long as they are flown well away from nearby airports and private airplane runways. It is also believed that the FAA is capable of detecting these small aircraft’s from satellite imagery which can give the pilot more comfort with flying the quadcopters. However, some of the best quadcopters are being flown indoors to aid in special effect lighting. Most of the quadcopter technology has been created by engineers at MIT. Recently in the news, there was some controversy about using the quadcopters for school research but the issue has seemed to be resolved. Similar to quadcopters, the best rc helicopter is also coming equipped with cameras, wifi, and still-shot images. The major difference between the quadcopter and rc helicopter is the size. A rc helicopter generally will not interfere with any airwaves since most of not flown at the same height of the quadcopter. According to, there are small rc helicopters being used by the military for video surveillance. We think that the use of quadcopters and rc helicopters are harmless as long as they are in compliance with the FAA and are not used to invade privacy.
