Is your Auto Insurance Company asking for an Independent Medical Exam after filing injury claim? Did they tell you that many of these people performing exams are on their payroll? Have you taken a look at comments made by people injured in car accidents required to be evaluated by these for-hire medical contractors? Noitce how few consider this action to be independent in nature? Independent Medical Exams (IME) are a strong reason for Insured Civil Rights legislation to be passed.
Join me, ESTRA in discussing the pitfalls of an Independent Medical Exam and how they benefit Auto Insurance Companies' bottom lines.
Rex Bear welcomes Dawna Kaufmann
Dawna Kaufmann is a widely read and respected true crime journalist who has reported on hundreds of high-profile cases of homicide as well as missing person’s cases. Her work has been published in such esteemed publications as Cosmopolitan, The Los Angeles Times and many other newspapers including the Globe and the Star as well as National Enquirer.
On top of her true crime writing career, Ms. Kaufmann has also written for film and television, including Saturday Night Live, MadTV and The Arsenio Hall Show amongst others.
Now Dr. Wecht and Dawna Kaufmann have teamed up again to present four different cases in a book titled Final Exams. These two professional crime specialists give an in-depth picture of each crime. The amount of time spent giving a full account of the victims, families and the crime leave the reader feeling a sense of rage, compassion, surprise and sadness.
Final Exams features four fascinating true crime cases from the files of Cyril H. Wecht, M.D., J.D., one of America’s most respected forensic pathologists.
Coauthored by crime writer Dawna Kaufmann, Final Exams explores both the technical and the human side of murder.
From the heartbreaking case of abducted child, Jessica Lunsford, held captive within shouting distance of her loved ones, to the peculiar story of a murder for hire with a most unlikely victim, Final Exams takes the reader behind the scenes. Secrets about the private lives of both predators and victims are revealed as the authors detail the events that turned rage to tragedy. Fans of CSI will appreciate how Wecht and Kaufmann share the real life process of solving crimes with clues left with the victim. FINAL EXAMS-Cyril Wecht and Dawna Kaufmann
Join Dr. Weizer as he discusses what self exams that you should be performing on yourself and how to perform these exams. Everyone should practice monthly head-to-toe self examination of their bodies, so that they can find any new or changing lumps and bumps that might be cancerous or precancerous.
It should be done often enough to become a habit, but not so often as to feel like a bother. For most people, once a month is ideal, but ask your doctor if you should do more frequent checks.
The guest for today's show forgot to call in, which happens with an 8AM show, so John and Karla discussed the upcoming Writer's Workshop on October 10-11, midterm exams, study habits, 'family secrets,' their working relationship and a smattering of other interesting topics. Join in as these two colleagues and friends talk about their work and life together over the last 15 years.

On today's show I discuss the continuing nature of the struggle between the world's global powers, America, Russia and China. I've been discussing these facts for weeks now and that my analyses have been echoed by major news outlets and political leaders. The hallmark but not the only criteria of a global power is their ability to have a manned space program. America, although not presently and not for some years now, Russia and China are all; therefore "Global Powers" and that along with other conditions you will not hear about in other outlets are the reasons and the direction behind the recent aggressiveness of Russian and China. Then, on the show I read an insightful article from the Manhattan Declaration discussing the nature of the discourse regarding homosexual "marriage" and the fact that Christianity's opposition to it is not based in bigotry but in the desire to adhere to God's plan for life and is not likely to change. Lastly, there are two articles regarding Mexico that I shared. One deals with the sad conditions but remarkable performance on intelligence exams of a poor girl in Matamoros. And Mattel tries again with a Barbie doll that represent Mexican culture with a Barbie in mariachi attire and I like it.
Love a good rant? Phil Leirness has you covered, taking on everything from the Ice Bucket Challenge to “Dr. Who” to Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide to Helen Mirren and The Hundred-Foot Journey!
It’s all in good fun, though, and he and Dean Haglund also weigh in on Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Philip Seymour’s last completed performance in A Most Wanted Man, listener Andrew Burt’s PhD exams, their favorite Robin Williams roles and no doubt, a little bit more.
In 99% of real estate and insurance brokerages I have every worked over the last 15 years, these are the training areas agents needed to improve producer sales and success rates:
Understanding what a business is
Some important economic topics
The definition of capitalism
The difference between marketing and advertising
Prospecting friends, family and strangers
Measuring contacts to prospects to sales ratios
Building rapport with prospects
Interviewing prospects and trial closes
Working as a consultant, not a salesperson
Discussing experiences and concerns with prospects
Understanding how to let prospects close themselves
Brokerages which lacked these traiing topics typically see high turnover because most producers are transitioning from W2 employment and have never owned businesses until they passed state real estate and insurance exams.
High turnover leads to:
Producers never learning the industry
Producers bouncing from office to office
Slow brokerage practice growth
Increasing commissions to attract and retain producers
Real estate brokers and insurance managers interested in reducing high turnover should contact 321SetAppointments.com for information to boost producer productivity.
