Join us for a conversation with Chava Kintisch, Esq., Director of Civic and Government Affairs for the Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania (DRN), about the new federal regulations for Medicaid home and community-based services now in effect. These regulations require Pennsylvania to ensure that its Medicaid home and community-based waiver services are provided through a person-centered planning process and provided in appropriate, integrated settings.
We'll discuss what the term Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) means, what person centered planning is all about, how it impacts residents of the Commonwealth with disability waivers, the Department of Human Service's (formerly DPW) transition plan, and much more.

Our economy is making more money that ever. Our #workingclass citizens are not reaping the strength of our economy. Your November 4th 2014 vote is the way to improve the USA economy. The top 1% of the wealthiest of Americans are grouping together to get everything the desire. The workingclass are busy looking for the next paycheck, a new car, better living conditions. There has been a reduction in the jobless rate, but more should have been done. We have a political challenge in America and only voting will term limit the people who have caused the political challenges. November 4th is the opportunity for workingclass Americans to improve the US economy.
Politicians have failed to make decisions to improve lives of workingclass citizens
CEOs are outsourcing rather than hiring workingclass citizens
Courts are passing judgements against workingclass citizens and favoring the weathiest of the sides
Voting is not a chore. Voting is not a waste of time. Voting is a solution. Voting is the way for workingclass citizens to level the playing field. Politicians know the workingclass holds the power. CEOs know the workingclass holds the power. Courts know workingclass citizens will relieve them of their oppressive control to rule the workingclass, once the workingclass wise up and use the collective strengths to improve the USA economy. Yes the wealthiest 1% of America owns over 50% of the wealth of America and the wealthiest of Americans recognize the power is in numbers not money. The workingclass out numbers the wealthiest. The way to improve our economy is to vote.
Your vote on Nov 4th either improves, destroys or stagnates the US economy. How you vote today decides your ability to provide for your family today, your families opportunities in the years to come, and your retirement years.
In this VERY IMPORTANT episode of The #SocialSpitballShow, we will be hearing from Lindsey Benage, who has facilitated the organization and coordination of National Medicaid Expansion Vigils to observe the potential lives lost in the 23 states that DID NOT accept Medicaid Expansion tax dollars that originated in each respective state.
In the midst of a busy election season, we need to stop and focus on the issues that matter to all citizens of the United States of America. This is a show to do just that.

Presbyterian’s website says emergency department doctors are independent physicians — common language in hospitals, where the separate but interlocked interests of single doctors, physicians’ groups and the institution itself can be bewildering.
At Presbyterian’s ER, the rest of the story is even less known. The signs all say Presbyterian, but Presbyterian doesn’t run it. The entire department is outsourced to an independent contractor.
The contractor, a Fort Worth-based company, Emergency Medicine Consultants Ltd., serves hospitals under the name of its medical practice, Texas Medicine Resources LLP, and uses the website name emdocs.com. The company referred questions to Texas Health.
A comparison of clients finds that two failed to beat state or federal averages in any category of emergency care quality. Two more — Texas Health Presbyterian and Methodist Charlton in southwestern Dallas — bettered those figures in just one category. In five others, they were worse, based on the latest report, from October 2012 to September 2013, by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
Presbyterian ranked 78th for safety among Texas' busiest 100 hospitals in a recent Dallas Morning News analysis of hospital complication data for 2012. Of 26 North Texas hospitals in the study, it was 17th.

The "Big One" is HERE . . . and just in time for the second round of cuts in the newly formatted 2014 NASCAR Chase format. That's the center of attention for Uncle Mark and Brandon parked in "the garage" here at Frat House Sports.
Talladega Superspeedway might just be the undoing for Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, and Brad Keselwoski. THAT's the topic . . . THAT's the tension . . . THAT's what is making this years new format so much fun . . . and the guys are talking about it! Many in media are claiming that Talladega has NEVER been more important than it is today . . . and, we all know that it's the BIG crap-shoot. We saw fireworks at the conclusion of Charlotte last week. WOW, what do you think the end here might mean?
Now . . . on the other side . . . more than likely drivers like Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, and Kasey Kahne just have to "lay up," drive mid-pack, and keep out of the fray to potentially advance . . . or do they?
Today comes the biggest CUT with just four races remaining to the Championship . . . and IT'S going to be a GOOD one. THIS is the pre-race show you need to be listening to . . . and participating in by calling 347 - 826 - 9964!
Funky beats, a rhythm that will keep you moving and meditating. One of the better CONNECTIONS you're find on the Internet. Donald Grammer cuts, blends, mixes jazz fusion, like no one else. Music is the universal language. When you have a great song on, it can mood you, and entice. Close your eyes and hear new concepts and realisms with notes jumping off the graph. Half notes, quarter notes, hip hop, R&B, fused with jazz and a spectrum of melody you won't forget. Donald Grammer and a little bit of me, Tolliver.
Then on the last Saturday of each month, she will give you something to think about. It's CONVERSATIONS with AMENTI - the Writer. She's is not afraid to let you have it New York style.
