We hit the lottery! Selected for an unclaimed funds audit

KEEP THIS COUPON We’re the winner of the lottery! Woo hoo! Lucky us! Okay, not so much – because the lottery we won was to be selected to receive an audit for unclaimed funds.

Collections call from Local Business Yellow Pages-No contract signed

My business manager received a collections call today from Local Business Yellowpages.  The person on the phone was threatening collections against her because they had her on recording in November giving her name and comfirming our business address.  No contract was ever signed or agreed upon.  Legally they could not go after her credit since she is not part of the business but she called me freaking out this morning! This looks to be a scam and has previously been reported on…

Today, we're all Okies: Thoughts on the May 20 tornado that ravaged Moore, Oklahoma

When you've lived in Oklahoma for your entire life, spring storms are an annual occurrence and rite of passage. You know the storms will come and, from the time you're old enough to understand, you're taught exactly what to do if a tornado approaches. You know where to go in your house (middle room with no exterior walls on the first level) and what to avoid (windows or any other kind of glass, plus anything that could become one of Mother Nature's wind-whipped weapons). You're also taught in… Continue

Ethics Assessment Required for Licensure?

Any opinions out there about requiring candidates for dental hygiene licensure to pass an online assessment containing ethical dilemmas/case scenarios??

Some top medical schools are even requiring this type of assessment for students applying for admission.

Thoughts??

 

Yay or…
