U.C. President Janet Napolitano Earmarking $5 Million To Help Students Living In The U.S. Illegally

U.C.President Janet Napolitano Earmarking $5 Million To Help Students Living In The U.S. Illegally

University of California President Janet Napolitano said Wednesday she is devoting $5 million to provide special counseling and financial aid for students living in the U.S. illegally, a move aimed at disarming critics who worried she would be hostile to the small but vocal student population.
The former Homeland Security Secretary announced the initiative in her first public address since she became head of the 10-campus university system a month ago — an evening appearance in San Francisco organized by the Commonwealth Club. She also pledged $10 million for recruiting and training graduate students and research fellows.
“Let me be clear. UC welcomes all students who qualify academically, whether they are documented or undocumented,” she said in prepared remarks released by her office before the speech. “Consider this a down payment — one more piece of evidence of our commitment to all Californians.”

Thank You Zip, Wash Post and @SooperMexican.

Well, that certainly puts another coat of hot wax on the U.C. surfboard.
It also puts a parade dress spit shine on U.C.'s already impeccable record, to say nothing of Homeland Security's impeccable abilities.
President Janet should fit right in with the 1600 UCSF/SFGH Faculty who don't know Federal Felonies from Freebies.
And who better than an expert in keeping the country Secure to keep U.C. Secure?

Report: White House Predicted In 2010 Tat 93 Million Americans Would Lose Their Health Plans Under ObamaCare

And yet Obama kept making his bullshit promise that you could keep your plan if you liked it.

[Ed; Bullshit would be One proper description alluding to the content of Obama's rhetoric.
There's actually a whole Slather of colorful words and colorful phrases which might better describe Obama's content, purport, and intention.
And we've heard other people, young people who've had their work hours cut to bring this behemoth of waste, fraud and abuse down upon the back of their own Individual necks, Use some of those other words. 
And the word we've heard Most often from those young people who've been Obama-ed over is an old Anglo-Saxon verb.]

Is It Lies, or Is It Demorex? Keeping Your Health Plan: Obama, CMS Chief Tavenner, and Top Dem Stenny Hoyer

All via weaselzippers;

Video Montage: Obama Repeatedly LYING To Americans Telling Them They Can Keep Their Health Insurance

And he knew the entire time this was a flat out lie.

Huh? CMS Administrator Says It's A "True Statement" That You Can Keep Your Plan Under ObamaCare

Really? Because millions of cancellation notices say otherwise.

Top House Dem Admits They Knew Obama Was LYING When He Promised Americans They Could Keep Their Health Insurance

Oh my.
Via NRO:
House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer conceded to reporters today that Democrats knew people would not be able to keep their current health care plans under Obamacare and expressed qualified contrition for President Obama’s repeated vows to the contrary.
“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”

Thank You Zip.

The Good News: 500,000 Californians Are Not Going To Lose Their Insurance - The Bad News: 900,000 Are, . . .

Thanks Barack!
Via NRO:
My wife, San Francisco Chronicle columnist Debra J. Saunders, caused quite a stir over the weekend when she discovered that 500,000 Californians would lose their health insurance under Obamacare. That means often paying more to buy a new policy, on the exchange.
It’s actually worse than she first thought. At an editorial-board meeting yesterday, she questioned the head of Covered California about the matter. He admitted the actual number is between 800,00 and 900,000.

Thank You NRO and Zip.

Medical Interns Fall Short On Etiquette: Read 'Mentally Ill' "Narcissistic Dysphoria"

Medical Interns Fall Short On Etiquette
October 24, 2013 | By 

Doctors-in-training are unlikely to engage in common courtesy behaviors such as introducing themselves fully to patients or sitting down to talk to them one-on-one, according to recent research from Johns Hopkins University.

The researchers monitored 29 internal medicine interns at Hopkins and the University of Maryland Medical Center for a three-week period in January 2012. They analyzed more than 700 inpatient encounters during 118 intern work shifts and noted whether the interns observed the five-step process known as etiquette-based communication: introducing themselves, explaining their role in the patients' care, making physical contact with the patient, asking open-ended questions like "How are you feeling?" and sitting down with the patient.

During these encounters, interns asked open-ended questions 75 percent of the time and touched patients in 65 percent of visits, according to lead researcher Leonard S. Feldman, M.D., an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and co-author Lauren Block, M.D., a former general internal medicine fellow at Hopkins.

However, interns only introduced themselves in 40 percent of visits, only explained their role in care in 37 percent of the visits and only sat down 9 percent of the time. Moreover, interns engaged in all five steps in only 4 percent of encounters.
Improvement in these areas is particularly important because research indicates etiquette-based communication can affect patient outcomes, according to Feldman.

"Basic things make a difference in patient outcomes and they're not being done to the extent they should be," Feldman said in an announcement. "These are things that matter to patients and are relatively easy to do."

An April study, also conducted at Hopkins, found medical interns spent almost as much time walking as they did at patients' bedsides, which researchers said could hurt the patient-doctor relationship, FierceHealthcare previously reported.
