controversy Develop programs based on clinical interventions with proven effectiveness. Those treatments that fit evidence-based practice guidelines are certainly more likely to be funded in the managed healthcare environment. Describe programs in language that demonstrates clinical compassion, but also provides enough business-plan detail to demonstrate some measurable cost savings or (better yet) the generation of income. In market-driven managed healthcare one will be increasingly constrained to justify treatment programs with proven outcomes that benefit most patients and at the same time. At stendra the same time, one can sometimes show that clinical effectiveness and compassion are 'marketable features' that reflect well upon the organization or system. In the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the NHS 'socialised medicine' seems just as bound to cost-control measures as American healthcare in the private sector. In all cases the consistency index of the most parsimonious trees was higher for the data set without the intraspecifically variable base positions, which resulted in less most parsimonious trees than the data sets with intraspecifically variable base positions included. The combined COI+ITS data set without intraspecific variation resulted in the lowest number of most parsimonious trees, i.

Unemployment Black Bean Brownies

black bean brownies

Earlier this week, I was still recovering from the swine flu but dragged myself to my office only to find it had been cleaned out.  Feeling nauseous anyway, I sat down in my boss’ office and numbly listened to her words.  So sorry…it’s the economy…you did a great job…no funding for your position…blah blah blah.  Huh? did my job just dump me with the “it’s not you, it’s me” break-up speech?

So instead of a morning of dull research and nursing a cup of tea wondering if I was well enough to be in the office that day, I was packing a box of my personal items and officially joined the 9.6% of the New York City population counted as unemployed.  The rest of the day was kind-of a blur.  I recall a tremendous outpouring of support and suggestions.  Friends sent job postings and made suggestions for networking opportunities.  My boyfriend came home early from work to find me in his sunny kitchen hammering away on my laptop looking for job leads.

What a way to start the New Year!  Soon the anxiety soon began to creep in.  How long can I afford my rent?  Where will I live?  Just the day before I was planning a trip to Tucson to see my sister and her new baby due this fall.  Can I afford it now?  My boyfriend and I had been planning on going to Sukkahfest – is that the best use of my (now much more) limited resources?

That and so many more questions were swirling around in my head.  But I found myself in my comfort zone, my (boyfriend’s) kitchen and hungry for dinner.  Since I had been sick we were pretty low on groceries, but there were enough odds and ends to pull together some pasta, a basil-kale-chicken stock-raw cashew pesto (with a clove of fresh garlic, it was incredible).  But the real comfort food were the black bean brownies.

I had first tasted a friend’s black bean brownies at a Shabbat pot-luck.  I asked for the recipe but she brushed me off saying I only needed to Google for a recipe.  A few weeks later I found myself cooking for a crowd, which included vegans, so I attempted the friend’s sage advice and found this recipe for vegan black bean brownies.   I baked the brownies in greased muffin tins and what came out were soft and chewy delicious chocolaty goodness.  I tried them again a week later, but forgot the oats.  Bad idea – they need the gluten in the oats to stick together.

So the other night, even though I was feeling shocked, scared, anxious, happy, sad and all sorts of other emotions, a warm batch of these chewy chocolate delights (with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream) and sitting on the couch with my boyfriend made everything just a little bit better.

    sorry you lost your job. I know how that feels — but I’m glad you liked the brownies. I hope they bring you many smiles and you find a better job here in NYC soon.

    Hang in there (and get on unemployment)! Those brownies were wonderful – and I want that kale pesto recipe, unless you’re saving it for another Yid.Dish!

    I can’t believe you have swine flu AND got laid off. That is SO 2009!
