More than half (74.5%) of the students had not heard about STIs but all students had heard about HIV/AIDS in both settings. Most of the students responded correctly identifying unprotected sex, blood transfusion and injecting illegal drugs as modes of transmission of HIV. Half of the students in both settings did not know that the use of condom is the main safe method for prevention and control of STIs/HIV. http://www.scirj.org/jul-2014-paper.php?rp=P0714155

Writing a Curriculum Vitae (CV) Information accessible online by logging into Careers in Medicine (http://www.aamc.org/students/cim/). - Click on “Getting into Residency” - Click on “Writing a Curriculum Vitae (CV)” The first of many supporting documents you'll need for the residency application process is a curriculum vitae (CV). A CV is concise summary of relevant information about your background and accomplishments, particularly relating to your academic and work experience. Since much of the application process is electronic, the use of a CV to apply to programs is limited. The ERAS system will generate a CV for you automatically, but the format is very basic. While you may not need to send a separate CV with your applications, it's helpful to have one prepared anyway. Most of the information you include on a CV will also be required for the your residency application - having it all in one place on a CV will make writing your application and personal statement easier. Your school may also request a CV to aid in the preparation of your Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE). Lastly, you should provide a CV to faculty members who will write your letters of recommendation. Creating a CV takes time, but it's a tool you'll use throughout your professional life. You'll need to present complete but succinct information that will provide an overview of your qualifications. A CV is a living document that represents you -- properly constructed and with periodic updates, the CV you develop now can be used throughout your career.

The Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) created this report as an educational tool for policy makers and other interested parties. The statistics presented in this report represent data reported to DFI from all payday lending licensees for calendar year 2011. NOTE: DFI is not able to track data from unlicensed Payday Lenders. What is a Payday Loan? Payday loan companies offer small, short-term, high interest loans secured by a post-dated check. The consumer’s post-dated check is written for the loan amount plus a fee. The check is held by the lender for the loan period (term). At the end of the term, the lender may deposit the check or the customer may reclaim the check with cash. The legislature passed Washington’s first payday lending laws in 1995 under the Check Cashers & Sellers Act (RCW 31.45). DFI is the regulator of payday lenders in Washington State. What is Allowed in Washington State? Maximum Loan Term: Maximum Loan Amount: Maximum Fee: 45 days $700 15% on the first $500 10% above $500 Example: A loan for $500 + $75 fee = $575 A loan for $700 + $95 fee = $795 Payment Plans and Installment Plans Borrowers are entitled to an installment loan at any time prior to default. Borrowers do not have to pay a fee for the installment plan and have from 90 to 180 days (depending on the original loan amount) to repay the loan in a series of installments. The number of payday lending locations decreased 30% from year-end 2009 to year-end 2010, and decreased another 40% from year-end 2010 to year-end 2011. Overall, the number of payday lending locations has decreased 65% since its height in 2006.
AZ Registrar of Contractors Joins Contracting Boards in Six Other States in Sting of Unlicensed Contractors Advertising on Craigslist The Registrar of Contractors (ROC) is joining contracting boards in Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Rhode Island and South Carolina, as well as the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA) in issuing a nationwide consumer alert about a plethora of illegal and deceptive ads placed every day on the popular craigslist website (www.craigslist.org) and other similar online bulletin boards. The Registrar of Contractors routinely investigates unlicensed contracting by checking newspapers, magazines, tradeshows and online bulletin boards such as craigslist. Craigslist is a valuable tool and is used by many licensed contractors to advertise. Unfortunately, many unlicensed contractors also use craigslist to post illegal and deceptive advertisements. In Arizona a person commits a Class 1 Misdemeanor by (1) advertising to perform services that require a contractor’s license, and/or (2) acting in the capacity of a contractor without a license. The Arizona sting led to 9 unlicensed contractor investigations. The ROC routinely refers unlicensed contracting cases to the Maricopa County Attorney’s office for prosecution. Arizona Registrar Bill Mundell said, “Joining with seven other states in conducting this unlicensed contractor sting is a historic event. This combined effort demonstrates our shared commitment to protecting honest people from the harm caused by unlicensed contractors. In order to protect Arizonans we vigorously enforce the unlicensed contractor laws.” The Oregon sting led to 28 unlicensed contractor investigations.
