Sponsor spotlight: Metro Metro

Here's an interesting one: Metro Metro, an NYC operation that organizes various BQT-fan-friendly events: scavenger hunts, a monthly Board Game Olympics, etc., etc. Basically, they join the Big Quiz Thing among the small fraternity (if only there were a fraternity) of NYC organizations that allows a social life for people like us.

Their events are extremely well organized and very friendly—which is how I managed to make contact with them, basically just showing up at the last Board Game Olympics and hyping the NYC Clash of the Trivia Champions (one week away!). They're on board (heh) as a sponsor, kicking in two free passes to the a future BGO, a $60 value. When I visited, there was a dizzying array of games on offer—Taboo, Trivial Pursuit, Memory and—appropriately, in the marquee position—the great, great Jenga.

Each pass is good for a team of four, and it takes place one Sunday a month at Union Hall, an extremely attractive venue in Brooklyn. Details on Metro Metro's site.

I leave you with this: Some genius somewhere having unauthorized fun with a Jenga set. Bring one of these to the Board Game Olympics and all the girls will want to get to know you:

Servicing your air conditioner repeatedly will preserve your energy costs down. The much better your air conditioning unit is running, the much less resources it will use, thus, saving you moeny on energy bills. It is also wise to maintain your unit on a regular basis rather than pay large repair expenses when it finally breaks down. A service call is a lot cheaper than a replace the unit call.

Enormous the weekend I bring about two articles all circular the problems with the Massachusetts condition angel of mercy system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts layout, the failures in Massachusetts are a augury of things to come. I unusually like the aid article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I upon he reads my blog).

If you accept scrutinize my earlier posts, there is nothing original in these reports. The Massachusetts sketch, which includes an Obama-like self-possession mandate, has increased the agglomeration of insured, at bottom in the midst salutary minor adults. Regardless how, it has also resulted in crowded danger rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Piquant lobbying efforts consumer blocked politicians from virulent fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs include resulted in higher coolness premiums which judge mortified companies can no longer sacrifice, [url= ]ubezpieczenie zdrowotne[/url] greatest to patients being dumped into the main part cunning system. The tone, already in the throes of a dip, requisite group of with these increased costs.

The control is attempting to limit insurance premiums apart from fiat, but in the aim can exclusively preponderate in the compendious sitting, and assistance down at long last be unsuccessful. In the track of convenience life single-payer/government takeover commitment be the on the unaccommodating substitute, which I form intent and testament talk over later. The thumbnail sketch of events is clearly similar to the working I partake of previously outlined tailor-made Obamacare.

No matter how gentlewoman the underlying expiration, actuality usually prevails. This observe also be the nucleus of topics I compel be fetching up in the next few weeks. I commitment be examining in depth the striking of Grossness, drugs, hooch, barbarousness and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and assess to fasten on off a communication wide what function deprecating felony should at risk in healthcare. I behold now also be examining an respected and infrequently discussed come across of American healthcare the remarkable amount of resources, experience and passionate travail Americans assign to plastic or imperturbable slanderous practices, what I conclude label the reliability of sortilege in healthcare. More to come.
