What Is DCWatch

What Is DCWatch:

 "The Need for a Good Government Watchdog

ashington, DC, the nation's capital, has a city government that is inefficient, poorly managed, and fiscally irresponsible, and that is characterized by widespread waste, fraud, corruption, and abuse.

The structural problems facing Washington, DC, are not unique. They typify the problems facing the inner cities of many metropolitan areas. These problems include crime, drugs, a deteriorating infrastructure, a failing public school system, poorly maintained and managed public housing, high taxes, and a general breakdown in the delivery of government services. What makes Washington unique is the fact that, even with massive budgets and federal aid, these problems are compounded by large budget deficits and recurring fiscal crises, the mismanagement of programs and departments, and fraud and corruption scandals.

The creation by Congress of the DC Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority (the Control Board) in 1995 began to alleviate some of the city's financial problems."

Citalopram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Citalopram - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: " ranking of the 10 antidepressants for efficacy and cost-effectiveness [8] citalopram is fifth in effectiveness (after mirtazapine, escitalopram, venlafaxine and sertraline) and fourth in cost effectiveness. The ranking results were based on the metaanalysis by Andrea Cipriani[9] In another analysis by Cipriani citalopram turned out to be more efficacious than paroxetine and reboxetine and more acceptable than tricyclics, reboxetine and venlafaxine, however it seemed to be less efficacious than escitalopram.[10]"

Hall Of Shame.US - group at My World Of Work

Hall Of Shame.US - group at My World Of Work: " there are rules, and there are exceptions to the rules. Here is one such company formally nominated to the Hall of Shame.US:

This company simply put profits before people, and when I went out of my way, to request assistance (and it was not even my money, or a cruise that I was going on) all with reasonable requests, the customer service person said that they are not "making any money" on this cruise based on the number of conversations they have notated.

When I was merely being assertive and requesting that the company "compromise on it's policy" the representative simply said, that they can't do this for everyone. Later to someone else they spoken, they even had the nerve to "call me rude" when I was politely yet assertively, requesting to speak to a supervisor. "

Activist Post: Protect IP Act Gives Government Power to Seize Websites On a Whim

Activist Post: Protect IP Act Gives Government Power to Seize Websites On a Whim: "removing websites with no oversight whatsoever is a clear violation of constitutional law as interpreted by the Supreme Court, the professors add that the bill would hand government the power to “break the Internet addressing system.”

“It requires Internet service providers, and operators of Internet name servers, to refuse to recognize Internet domains that a court considers “dedicated to infringing activities.” But rather than wait until a Web site is actually judged infringing before imposing the equivalent of an Internet death penalty, the Act would allow courts to order any Internet service provider to stop recognizing the site even on a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction issued the same day the complaint is filed."
