Higher education is something I firmly believe in, but prices for books and college in general have become astronomically high, and to the point where it seems like a great injustice is being performed to knowledge seeking students. To go from free high school, to expensive college just doesn't make sense.

I found this article very interesting that it was so easy to hack Obama care. David Kennedy who is a white hacker or a hacker for the good guys found out that Obama care could be hacked in under 4 minutes. I found it crazy that such a program with so much important information was able to be hacked so easily. I know that Obama care has had a rough journey so far but the road ahead is going to still be very tough. They need to fix this problem right away with so much information just sitting their waiting to be hacked.

Benton Blank's comment, April 26, 2014 10:48 PM
I found this article extremely surprising. I cannot believe that a system that is supposed to be integral to the registration of Obamacare would not have the necessary security protocols in place. There is something seriously wrong if a website can be hacked in less than four minutes when participants are expected to enter their sensitive personal information. After the initial problems with Healthcare.gov, I cannot say that I am not surprised, however, I would have hoped that, after the initial flop, the website would have been fixed rather than hastily patched. I guess this will just add to the already poor reputation of the Obamacare website and policy.

Siobhan Chantigian's comment, March 22, 2014 11:11 AM
I do agree that police officers should be able to have tasers, but they must be thoroughly trained about what circumstances to use a taser. I feel like having someone with a knife coming at the police officer is a good time. I like that the police are being given more protection because peperspray is the other alternative and many times it ends up in the police's eyes. The other alternative is a gun and having something in between keeps our streets safer. They were talking about how people were concerned with them using them on people with mental disabilities or under duress, I understand why these came up, but I feel that unless the police is in a direct threat they shouldn't use tasers, or if a dangerous person runs.
Annie Christofferson's comment, March 23, 2014 4:09 PM
I agree with you Siobhan. I thought it was interesting what Officer Strum said about how all police officers have to get tased before they are hired. This would prevent them from using a taser when they don't need to. They just need to be wary about when they use them and use them wisely.

Should Healthcare Marketing Include Social Media?

Social Media. It’s the buzzword that just won’t go away. Businesses, marketers, moms, grandparents and teens are flocking to forums like Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Just how much time are they spending there?Research shows in the United States, people are on Facebook more time each day than six of the nation’s leading news sites combined. And that’s just on Facebook. 

 

So, should healthcare marketing plans include Social Media?


Yes.To not include it would be like an ostrich burying its head in the sand. 

 

But, Social Media isn’t as simple as jumping on the bandwagon and throwing up a few pages here and there with your logo. Establishing an effective Social Media presence as part of your healthcare marketing plan means including Social Media in your overall content strategy.What does this look like? How can it be done successfully?
