They started using biodegradable five-compartment trays. It is exciting to see that schools are moving forward with being eco-conscious!

Comment on Foot Doctors Say New York Law Stomps Their Practices by efn http://theuptowner.org/2010/10/19/foot-doctors-say-new-york-law-stomps-their-practices/comment-page-1/#comment-64259 efn Fri, 22 Apr 2011 13:20:43 +0000 http://theuptowner.org/?p=3891#comment-64259 Let's see...you come to me for a problem, I examine you, I make a diagnosis, I prescribe medications or physical therapy or biomechanical intervention...I examine and diagnose your gait...if it all fails, I open up your foot, fix what is wrong and put it back together. I can do all of this and I am not a physician nor surgeon? That is the crux of the ignorance. I hold licenses in four jurisdictions in this Union, only in New York does the word "physician" not appear. This is purely because of the MD lobby. It is all about the dollar green. No worries, I will not treat your diabetes or hypertension, nor do I care to...and, sorry but yes, our education is compatible in considering co-morbidities. Personally, I believe my leaders are barking up the wrong tree. What needs to change is New York recognizing, as most other states already do, that podiatrists are indeed physicians who specialize in the lower extremity.

I attempted to start a business of gently used dancewear and shoes but it was too seasonal to make it a go. I have costumes, shoes, leotards, etc. Do you have a need for new/used dance clothes?

Comment on Students React to Achievement Gap Documentary by Santo Reifschneider http://theuptowner.org/2010/11/09/school-kids-react-to-achievement-gap-documentary/comment-page-1/#comment-58217 Santo Reifschneider Sat, 02 Apr 2011 11:38:03 +0000 http://theuptowner.org/?p=4991#comment-58217 Our child has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and also ADHD. The doctor mentioned he lacks social skills, but this doesn't make sense with me since any time he is with his grandparents as well as a couple of pals, heactually performs pretty normal. Doesn't this show that he does have the social skills and for whatever reason does not employ them in the most other places for whatever reason..
