Re: “Exploring modern mothering through an economic lens

As a stay at home mom I recommend "Medical Coding" as a wonderful work from home option. Yes, you will need training. You can't just code medical records without having proper training. However, this is a real and promising career. I used to work for "Career Step" and they have an awesome Medical Coding course.

Their training is done online and is self-paced. You could finish the program in 4 months but 6 months is probably more realistic. They do however give you up to a year to get it all done. Their program is approved by the American Health Information Management Association and the American Academy of Professional Coders. They work with companies such as CIOX Health, Lexicode, OS2-HCS, TrustHCS, Inovalon, Mckesson that hire their grads to work from home right out of the program.

The average salary for this career is about $40,000. Their entire program including books, instructors and job assistance is around $3,000 and they offer sweet payment plans.

If you want more info, reference links or have questions let me know @

Re: “Author Jennifer Matesa talks about sex after getting sober

Looks like a great read. Thank you for publishing on this issue that so many struggle with. As a recovering person in long term recovery (one breath at a time,) I very much struggled (and still do) with defining what the words, healthy sexuality, intimacy are for me. I believe it will be a lifelong quest, yet, I'm so very grateful for all the courageous soul/spirits (I.e. Patrick Carnes, Ken Adams, Rob Weiss, Alex Katehakis, Deb Kaplan, Stacy Sprout, to name only a few) who have stared paving the way and asking the very difficult questions in regard to these issues. One of Dr. Carnes's favorite sayings is that there is no separation between sexuality and spirituality; this has been my experience on my path to greater physical, emotional, mental, spiritual sanity. The great journey continues!

Re: “Texas Tough author Robert Perkinson explores our wasteful and destructive prison system.


Your Honor ,
Kindly your are one among of my side of life ,now the reason to send this massage to you is to ask the possible way of finding help on agreeing when it is a time of security or safe area ,
If someone is jailed for the Immigration case and economic reason can you handle him to his country with the list of used utility and shopping bag spent .

Again, if someone has a reason to flee or ask for a refugee in the time of case can you hire someone in his area of native or birth nation to work in the industries there for him until he is released.

this is because of too much in and out for no reason that causing some in security reaction and bad future decision.

Re: “Poet Terrence Chiusano’s On Generation & Corruption is a striking debut collection

Howdy Bill. Thanks for this review. I enjoyed your writing (as usual) & it makes me want to checkout this poetry. It also stirs thought in a couple directions & if I see you maybe I'll remember to bring it up. . . "pure language" makes me think of Gertrude Stein, which points me to this piece I also, coincidentally (I guess), read today:…

Twas a pleasure to see you at the other Mike's place.
regards, Mike

Re: “A local therapist publishes a new book for dealing with eating disorders.

Laura Lazarus Stern causes eating disorders in the Women at Carnegie Mellon University because she is paranoid that profiessional associates of EECS faculty member, Stern care about anything other than work. She is the epitomy of "the wives will think something is going on" thereby promoting discrimination. Also, she's fat and wears tight t shirts -- showing little self-respect.

Re: “English professor-turned-nurse Theresa Brown tells about her first year on the job in Critical Care.

Why were you called to my mother and my boyfriend Bonnie Underwood and OULAY Underwood. At the easy 8 motel in Lancaster ca. And what was your cellular signal doing in my room? Meaning you had to be either under my floor or in the plumbing
