The sun symbol of the Zia pueblo represents the Circle of Life with the sacred number four in the rays symbolizing the four directions, the four seasons, the four times of day (sunrise, noon, evening, night) and the four stages of life (childhood, youth, adulthood and old age.

OP didn't say if it was a public school, but when salaries are public information, HR might worry about an appearance of favoritism.

Why should all the girls who play ice hockey in Michigan high schools have to leave Michigan to play in college?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||It is confusing.||
Veterans Day in the U.S. and Rembrance Day (Poppy Day) in Canada both started as Armistice Day, honoring those who had died in The Great War. But the U. S. has an older tradition of decorating the graves of soldiers who died in the American Civil War with flowers in May. "Decoration Day" in May became Memorial Day, honoring those who died in war (this is the "poppy day" in the U.S.), and Nov 11 became a holiday when all veterans are honored.

A blood test is smart when you know you weren't DWI.

Countess is an alumnus who just made a hard choice. He undoubtedly got his coaches' advice. (Remember Mattison's involvement in Blake's recruitment and reaction when he committed and signed.) He worked hard, did his best when faced with adversity, and earned our respect.

The tolerance for alcohol by a chronic alcoholic is mind-boggling. Part of being addicted is it takes more and more to feel the same effects and to keep from feeling withdrawal effects.

I have no reason, whatever, to doubt Dr.Andrews. But to be fair, he's a medical director and team orthopedist for Auburn.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Good advice re Claremont and||
Good advice re Claremont and Pasadena. Both have nice college/university communities. Aim to be reasonably near a Metrolink station (Park and Ride, bicycle, short bus trip or even walking) so you won't fight the traffic. Around UC-Irvine or beach towns (Newport, Huntington), would also be my choice in OC. Don't sweat about it, but before you finally settle on a place, spend a few minutes online checking the streetgang maps, faultlines and firezones.

As a physician, I have an obligation to question this decision. The head of the sports medicine department could have allowed more time for rehab, before making a decision. He had a moral and legal duty to put his patient's best interests first. Did he fail to do so?
|1 year 50 weeks ago||When physicians aren't sure||
When physicians aren't sure about a case like this, they rely on "expectant mananagement," aka "tincture of time" to determine what to do. There was no medical reason, it seems, why Ohio State could not have used this wait-and-see approach. So ethically-speaking, the team physician should have delayed making a recommendation, in his patient's best interest.

Dryden's first masks were smaller and the design resembled a ski mask. But as masks got larger, he modified the design to look like a target, with a red circle, shaped like the Canadiens' logo, inside a blue one.

The oncology nurses at the U. are wonderful!
GRBluefan already mentioned my two fave's from when I was in med school. I'll add that the Arb has a lot of side trails off the main paths, if you want to be alone for awhile. It's a short walk from the Med Center to one of the entrances, and it's free, so you can go over there anytime from dawn to dusk.

As the traditional newspapers continue to fold, I think the biggest loss is their support of good, local investigative reporting.

Clonidine (Catapres) may be considered for PTSD nightmares. (Evidence level C) It's an off-label (not FDA approved) use that may be worth trying when first-line therapies aren't effective. It can also cause nightmares.

Red loves Michigan. He knows he'll be hanging them up, and that Hackett needs both his help and the right timing to secure the best possible coach for Michigan hockey.
|2 years 6 weeks ago||Michigan Tech was certainly a||
Michigan Tech was certainly a college hockey power in the '60s and '70s under Coach John MacInness, a UM grad who was the goalie for Michigan's 1950 NCAA champions and a director of Ann Arbor Amateur Hockey. However, Tech won one NCAA title in the '70s (in 1975), while both Minnesota (Herb Brooks) and Boston University (Jack Kelley and Jack Parker) won three. A case could also be made for Cornell (Ned Harkness), which had the only undefeated and untied team in NCAA history in 1970, and had other great teams in the late '60s with Ken Dryden in goal. And Murray Armstrong, who was demoted from the Red Wings by Jack Adams in favor of an 18 year-old named Gordie Howe, coached Denver University to four NCAA championships in the '60s.

The Ivy presidents approved freshman eligibility in 1993, but not all members took advantage. Since the Ivies don't allow regular redshirting or grad students to be eligible, some schools would have had freshmen on the roster who weren't permitted to play or have a fifth year.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||You are correct.||
What drives me nuts are the inflated costs, that make better quality unaffordable.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||It isn't a bad rule.||
As others have pointed out, there are legitimate ways to receive necessary assistance, which do not break the rules. The Sunshine Act doesn't say you can't send flowers to a doctor whose husband died. It does say you/your employer must report it.

Those colors are closer to Michigan's official colors of maize and azure blue than the highlighter yellow and navy tint.
