NEW BLOG IS UP!

Hey OGV, I really don't care WHAT the reason... Just so long as he stays another year!

(But you make a VERY strong point there... )

Nice to see Canes Baseball finally won another one.

9-2... (Helped clean a bit of that Redbird crap off our windshield.)

FROM THE AP:

Some Americans could see their insurance bills double next year as the health care overhaul law expands coverage to millions of people.

The nation's big health insurers say they expect premiums — or the cost for insurance coverage — to rise from 20 to 100 percent for millions of people due to changes that will occur when key provisions of the Affordable Care Act roll out in January 2014.

Mark Bertolini, CEO of Aetna Inc., one of the nation's largest insurers, calls the price hikes "premium rate shock."

"We've done all the math, we've shared it with all the regulators, we've shared it with all the people in Washington that need to see it, and I think it's a big concern," Bertolini said during the company's annual meeting with investors in December.

To be sure, there will be no across-the-board rate hikes for everyone, and there's no reliable national data on how many people could see increases. But the biggest price hikes are expected to hit a group that represents a relatively small slice of the insured population. That includes some of the roughly 14 million people who buy their own insurance as opposed to being covered under employer-sponsored plans, and to a lesser extent, some employees of smaller companies.

The price increases are a downside of President Barack Obama's health care law, which is expected to expand coverage to nearly 30 million uninsured people. The massive law calls for a number of changes that could cause premiums for people who don't have coverage through a big employer to rise next year — at a time when health care costs already are expected to grow by 5 percent or more:

— Changes to how insurers set premiums according to age and gender could cause some premiums to rise as much as 50 percent, according to America's Health Insurance Plans, or AHIP, an industry trade group that's funded by insurers.

— A new tax on premiums could raise prices as much as 2.3 percent in 2014 and more in subsequent years, according to a study commissioned by AHIP. Policyholders with plans that end in 2014 probably have already seen an impact from this.

— Requirements that insurance plans in many cases cover more health care or pay a greater share of a patient's bill than they do now also could add to premiums, depending on the extent of a person's current coverage, according AHIP.

You have to have done the same reading between the lines as I did there and saw, ("My dad made several 10's of millions of dollars in 15 years and didn't spend them faster than humanly possible so I don't need money,") didn't you roach?

Cgnc awesome win by the pens last night.

Good news... from the SS site.

Scouts were impressed, but Larkin told the Sun Sentinel he plans on returning to Coral Gables for his junior season.

"I love playing for Coach L," he said after the Hurricanes practice Wednesday in Greensboro. "Obviously, you want to go to the next level, but I love what I'm doing now. I love all the players and I love everybody in the program and I love everybody at the school.

"So I don't see any reason to take that next step."

LB...yeah, I pissed off TypePad and they are making my life difficult. U should see the spam filter, it is FULL of nasty stuff.

Back from the 407. What did I miss?

j.w.

.w. the baseball team has not been up to standards since that run in 2008 or whenever it was. it is 5 years past that

Posted by: CGNC | March 13, 2013 at 12:54 PM

Agreed. It is no longer just a slump, it's a nosedive. Happens to everyone eventually. Sad that it's us now.

LB

Hey 86,

I think you irritated the Typepad tech guys. Now they're sending you spam willingly!

I am disappointed in you, though, Viagra poster. I'd rather see Carmen Electra.

Beamer looks like a good sport. I hope he feels that way after we clean his clock for consecutive seasons.

I Hate It When A Redbird Craps On Our Windshield...


NIce one.

j.w.

It seems that way, doesn't it CGNC & Old Skool! Damn, tough times on Hurrican Drive for Morris.

CGNC

What's the deal? Did the Canes baseball team give up winning for Lent?

Posted by: Old Skool | March 12, 2013 at 11:01 PM

That is the funniest thing I have read in awhile!!!

HawaiiCane

^^^ Agreed.

Ohio_Cane

TJL, that's pretty awesome that he participated

TJL

I'm surprised TR would take that stance given he is coach by Steve Walsh

Urban Meyer following the same winning formula he had at Florida.

All he needs now is some fake religious zealot at quarterback to deflect the attention, and everything will be on track. Here come 45 felony arrests that nobody will say anything about. He's well on his way with Tim recruiting for him.

Ohio..I said it a few weeks back that Rudolph will be gone. IDK why he is even still "committed", he is blasting the coaches saying he cant trust them...I think the staff will just let him go, but not pull the offer so there isnt a big scene like with Kirkland. besides..PLENTY of other WR talent

LB

It's a bit like "survival of the fittest." Best to weed out the idiots early in the process than wait until NSD and hope Keef signs with us.

Slumping RJ? How about sagging DoughBoy. That guy needs to lose some lbs and be evaluated for congestive heart failure.

Ohio_Cane

Dear Travis Rudolph: See ya!

Next!

There's that trustworthy bomb again.

LB

Exhibit #10,341 in the case of "Wait Until They Sign:"

Travis Rudolph, though still committed to Miami, stated that Florida is his leader. Rumor has it that he stated something to the effect of "Muschamp is more trustworthy."

Insert big laugh here: ____________.

LB

Really, Eddie Johnson? Instead of helping to turn linebacker into a strength, you instead to sway it towards a liability. The rules can't be that horrible. It's not like boot camp or prison.

Selfish. Get his rear end out of there. Enjoy Marshall.

Old Skool

Also from Barry Jackson

### UM coach Jim Larranaga said Tuesday that his staff discusses slumping center Reggie Johnson "more than any player on our team, and by a lot. At some point, he's got to feel well enough [mentally] to play well."

Blake, do your job. Morris should have been removed 2 seaons ago.

Hassan


Let's bench our best hitter because he is in a slump, that should really help his confidence....


That is like pulling Peyton Manning because he threw 2 picks in the first half.

Hitters need the see the ball, sitting on the bench is not going to help him hit better.

Miami filing the motion to dismiss by 3-29-13

Next man in. Bond you are up!

Another yr of underachievement. How much leeway does Morris get?

Old Skool

What's the deal? Did the Canes baseball team give up winning for Lent?

j.w.

Wow, trying to remind myself to be patient, but this is beyond embarrassing. Morris didn't take the hint to apply for the AD job, time for new blood if he can't rally these guys.

Before tonight the Illinois State Redbirds record (5-7, 0-0 MVC) against mediocre teams
