Beyonce Sings the USA National Anthem

Please note the reaction of the people standing behind her at the end of the song, they look in total amazement of her fantastic performance.
This is by far the greatest rendition of our national anthem I have ever heard. She makes me feel very proud to be an American.
The land of the free and the home of the brave.

Political Views From Around the World. Many Countries World-wide are having Presidential Elections.

Below are excerpts from emails on different political views from people around the world.

These are edited emails with names deleted to protect some people.
I will always tell people world-wide that America has many problems however we have less corruption than any other county.

Hello Tom,

Here in Philippines, we also have almost the same presidential ideal.

I’m personally voting for Rodrigo Duterte. Because of all the politicians here in Philippines only he immediately responded to the Typhoon Haiyan victims and was personally there and leading his rescue team when he was the mayor of Davao City. He also allotted his budget for emergency fund to those affected. Unlike other politicians who froze the emergency fund to plan for their political advantage strategies to take advantage of the situation.

“Mayor Rody Duterte” as people call him, was asked by people of the Philippines to run for presidency and it is the Filipino people who funded and acted for his campaign. He did not want to be a president but ran to sacrifice his own retirement for the people of the Philippines. He is a tough mayor in his town and all criminals are afraid of him because of his vigilance and love to those who are victimized.
He is a lawyer and a very good economist as well.

If he will win this coming election, the Philippines will change into a new world and a better world.

But most of the politicians here will cheat during election especially in presidency and the election ballot are electronically hacked by their own creators to favor the highest bidding candidate. This is sad but true. I hope I will be one of those who screens the source code of the system so I could device a plan of audit and deployment.

I hate corrupt government.

I hope your president will win.. and I hope mine too.. God willing!

Quotes and Videos that I like.

Perception is reality, however it may not be the truth.

I saw this excellent health video on the Dr. Oz show.


Quotes I like:

It does not cost anything to be nice to people.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Then I read the following when searching this phrase on Google.  The below made me smile and laugh a little ...

"That saying was just some fortune cookie crap that is so short and general that it could mean anything to anyone and people put so much hype on this stupid saying when really it's just a nonsensical phrase. The first day of the rest of your life was the day you were born, everyday after that is just a day in the life. Every new day may bring a new beginning but the very "first" day of the rest of your life can only be when you were born or, born again."


If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.

Bernard J Tyson Kaiser Permanente, Billing Problems, and Why I Changed My Doctor

I am working on an update to this article about my experiences with Kaiser Permanente and Bernard J Tyson. The original article is interesting and is posted below.

I think it is interesting that I had to speak with Bernard Tyson the CEO of Kaiser Permanente in order to have my billing problems corrected. I suppose is it a sign of the modern times we live in today that I would be blogging about changing my doctor, and the reasons why that medical doctor change was needed.

I have to meet my new doctor and of course he will want to know why I am changing doctors after being a client (patient) of my previous doctor for more than ten years.

I will not mention the old doctor's name however I will say I have Kaiser and that I have been having many terrible problems with Kaiser since 1-1-2014.
Kaiser lost eight months of my payments and has been sending me collection and termination letters, and no one at Kaiser would help me for months until I finally phoned the CEO Bernard Tyson.  Yes this gentleman returned my phone call and promised to help me and he is keeping his service commitment to me.  Of course I am very happy the CEO helped me and this is a huge plus for Kaiser in my mind.  I am now loyal to Kaiser for life because I like Bernard so much.  Sometimes a super CEO like Bernard Tyson has to step in and help solve problems. 
The sad part of this story is the Kaiser CEO returned my phone call, yet my own physician for over ten years refused to return my phone calls.

Medical - Doctor - Stuff
My main problem with my old doctor is that he could not properly renew  and approve my prescriptions for a year.  I would have to go 3-4 times and stand in long lines to collect my constant and long term prescriptions.  Then he cut off my prescription just before I was going out of town for Thanksgiving.  My physician was on vacation and I was screwed.  Nice, cut off my medication I have been taking for ten years and go on vacation.
So I set up a complaint appointment, which I had to pay for.  It was not for any medical reason it was just to complain about their defective service renewing my prescriptions.
My doctor promised me he would have this fixed and I thought life would be good again.
I just completed picking up my medications; it took four trips and multiple phone calls and messages.  It wasted nine hours of my life.  My doctor is causing my blood pressure to go up and harming my health not helping it.
I think he is overloaded and forgets what we discuss and agree to and sometimes I feel like my doctor does not even remember who I am.

I will say my old doctor is highly intelligent, in fact one of the smartest physicians I have ever seen.
I just wish he could of had my prescriptions processed properly.

3-23-15 Update:
I now have Dr. Pang as my physician and he is fantastic. He even showed me in the Kaiser Permanente software how he renewed all my prescriptions, so I will not have anymore problems. At last I am completely happy with Kaiser. The Kaiser physician software and online database system is amazing (5 stars). I am the CEO of an Internet and software development company, so I am not easily impressed with other software developers work.
The Kaiser software system is outstanding and extremely impressive to me.
