Molly Petersen's curator insight, April 10, 2014 2:33 AM

This article is about the medical exam that immigrants have to go through to become a permanent resident or get a green card. They state that each immigrant entering the US seeking an adjustment of their status must prove that they have been vaccinating against certain diseases such as measles, mumps, polio, tetanus, influenza, etc. These physicians who are approved by the USCIS determine if that person needs to get a certain vaccine based on ACIP recommendations. The fees for the vaccination are for the applicant to negotiate with the civil physician. Along with vaccines one must get a chest x-ray, tuberculin skin test and blood tests. I think that this is a good for our country because we can protect more of the people already living here and it will help keep an outbreak from happening.

I think that this is a good idea. this will help stop the spread of potentially deadly diseases into the country.

Reach Your Potential With These Online Business Ideas

Home businesses can be both exciting and a little scary. How do you get started? How will your business work? It can be challenging because of the many questions involved. This article has many suggestions to help you move in the right direction. Determination and a proactive outlook are required for operating a home based business successfully. You may want to build your own home office that your customers can enter, since many counties have office regulations. This also acts as an effective barrier between your private life and work life. Keeping careful track of each and every one of your business expenses is a vital way to protect your pocketbook. These expenses include car mileage, gas and internet service. Running your own business means that a lot of these expenses are now tax deductible. Even trivial expenses can mount rapidly, and it's foolish to simply let the government keep even a fraction of your profits. Go online and get things you need at your office at a good price. Many wholesale companies are available online and can offer you discounts on the supplies your business needs at a fraction of the cost of retail. You should be able to qualify for a wholesale discount by providing proof of your business license. Make sure you keep records of all business expenses as this can help you save money. Expenses, such as Internet service, business mileage and office supplies, should all be kept track of. When you're self employed, there are many business expenses that become tax deductible. Even if you think the amount is too small, include it anyway, instead of passing it on to the government, claim it. Do you want to establish a home based business but don't know what will work? The Internet is a great resource to help you find business plans that have been successful for others. There is a lot of fraud on the web, so please exercise caution. Some websites sell information that can be gained elsewhere for free, or offer pricey courses on basic techniques. Remember to do your research so that you do not get scammed. Should it be sound too good, it probably isn't true. As was mentioned earlier in this article, a home based business can be both appealing and intimidating. Hopefully you have gleaned some good information and advice from the tips shared in this article. Put that advice into action, and watch as things begin to work more smoothly for your online business.
