Health insurance is a type of insurance whereby the insurer pays the medical costs of the insured if the insured becomes sick due to covered causes, or due to accidents. The insurer may be a private organization or a government agency. Market-based health care systems such as that in the United States rely primarily on private health insurance.

Arthritis (from Greek ''arthro-'', joint + ''-itis'', inflammation) is a group of conditions that affect the health of the bone joints in the body. One in three adult Americans suffer from some form of arthritis and the disease affects about twice as many women as men.Arthritic diseases include rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, which are autoimmune disorder|autoimmune diseases; septic arthritis, caused by joint infection; and the more common osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease. Arthritis can be caused from strains and injuries caused by repetitive motion, sports, overexertion, and falls. Unlike the autoimmune diseases, osteoarthritis largely affects older people and results from the degeneration of joint cartilage. Other forms are discussed below.Arthritic joints can be sensitive to weather changes. The increased sensitivity is thought to be caused by the affected joints developing extra nerve endings in an attempt to protect the joint from further dam! age.

Segregated Funds are a classification of funds administered by an insurance company in the form of individual, variable life insurance contracts offering certain guarantees to the policyholder such as reimbursement of capital upon death. As required by law, these funds are fully segregated from the company's general investment funds, hence the eponym.

Furigana[Japanese terms]
Kodansha's Furigana Japanese Dictionary: Japanese-English English-Japanese Name:Kodansha's Furigana Japanese Dictionary: Japanese-English English-Japanese
Release:October, 2000
Manufacturer:Kodansha International (JPN)

Personally, I really like this book as it seems to be very thorough.Definitely a must-have book for the advanced Japanese learner who needs to learn the Kanji, in addition to just the vocabulary translation.I often refer to this book just to find out what the kanji for a word is. Not meant to be a pocket dictionary, but a REFERENCE dictionary. For example, the word raspberry shows in katakana, "ki-i-chi-go", plus the kanji with the furigana above, plus the common katakana pronunciation "ra-zu-be-ri".For many words, especially those with multiple or varied meanings, it will give examples (even sentences too) in both English and Japanese, with kanji and furigana. Very helpful! The only negative about this book, is that the Japanese to English section is in hiragana (as opposed to romaji).So to look up a Japanese word, it may be very difficult for beginners to use, unless you already have the hiragana a i u e o ka ki ku ke ko down already, plus knowing how to read the hiragan! a.For quick look-up (and laziness) I would prefer to look up a Japanese word by the abc alphabet way. I would say that this is only for the serious Japanese learner with intermediate/advanced capabilities.If you are simply studying for a Japanese class for a few semesters and are not totally serious, you don't need such in-depth explanations, I would recommend something cheaper and easier to read.At a regular price of $60, there are much cheaper and much simpler books.

Furigana (ふりがな), are a Japanese language|Japanese reading aid. They consist of smaller kana printed next to a kanji or other character to indicate its pronunciation. In horizontal text, ''Yokogaki and tategaki|yokogaki'', they are placed above the line of text; in vertical text, ''Yokogaki and tategaki|tategaki'', they are placed to the right of the line of text. They are one type of ruby characters|ruby text. ''Furigana'' are also known as yomigana or rubi in Japanese.


Furigana may be added by character, in which case the part of a word which corresponds to a kanji is centered over that kanji; or by word or phrase, in which case the entire ''furigana'' word is centered over several characters, even if the kanji do not represent equal shares of the kana needed to write them. The latter method is more common, especially since some words in Japanese have ateji|unique pronunciations that are not related to any of the characters the word is written with.When it is necessary to distinguish between native Japanese ''kanji|kun'yomi'' and Chinese language|Chinese-derived ''Kanji|on'yomi'' pronunciations, for example in Kanji dictionary|kanji dictionaries, the Japanese pronunciations are written in hiragana, and the Chinese ones are written in katakana. However, this distinction is really only important in dictionaries and other reference works. In ordinary prose, the script chosen will usually be hiragana.

Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it making it fizzy. The carbon dioxide results from natural fermentation, either in a bottle as with the m?thode champenoise, or in a large tank designed to withstand the pressures involved, as in the charmat process. In some parts of the world, the word champagne (beverage)|champagne is used as a synonym for sparkling wine, although some prefer to reserve the word champagne for a specific type from the Champagne region of France.The classic example of a sparkling wine is Champagne (beverage)|Champagne, but many other examples are produced in other countries and regions, such as sekt in German wine|Germany, cava in Spain, spumante in Italy, Cap Classique in South Africa. Sparkling wine is usually white or rosé but there are several examples of red Australia|Australian sparkling shiraz grape|shiraz.For a description of the production method for Champagne and other wines made by the m?thode champenois! e see under Champagne (beverage)|Champagne. Because this process is expensive, using individual bottles for final fermentation, many other processes may be used. The tank method or charmat process is commonly used for lower priced sparklers.

Long term care insurance

Long term care insurance[Insurance]
The Consumers' Guide to Long Term Care Insurance Name:The Consumers' Guide to Long Term Care Insurance
Release:January, 2004

Usually ships in 24 hours

My spouse and I have been trying to determine if we need long term care and, if so, which options were most important. After reading a number of (more expensive) books and articles, we finally found this book.Although the book didn't offer advice, it did a great job of laying out the pros and cons of the various options available. The worksheet in the back helped us to better discuss the issues with our insurance agent and the chapter on underwriting prepared us for what to expect and why. All in all - a very good book that was simple to read and understand!
CustomerReview by amazon


Long-term care insurance, an insurance product sold through a licensed insurance agent (one who represents the insurance company) or an insurance broker (one who represents the policyowner) in the United States, helps provide for the cost of long-term care beyond a pre-determined period. Individuals who require long-term care are generally not sick in the traditional sense, but instead, are old and frail and unable to perform some of the basic activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, eating, toileting, getting in and out of a bed or chair, and walking.As an individual ages, there is an increased risk of needing long-term care. Medicare (United States) will not cover the expenses of long-term care, but Medicaid will for those who can not afford to pay.

Benefits of Long-Term Care Insurance

Medicaid generally does not cover long term care provided in a home setting; in most cases, Medicaid does not pay for assisted living. However, Medicaid does provide services for people with low income or limited resources who "need nursing home care but can stay at home with special community care services." [http://www.cms.hhs.gov/medicaid/whoiseligible.asp#aged] People who need long term care traditionally prefer care in the home or in a private room in an assisted living facility. If home care coverage is purchased, long term care insurance can pay for home care, often from the first day it is needed. It will pay for a live-in caregiver, companion, housekeeper, therapist or private-duty nurse up to 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Assisted living is paid for by long term care insurance as is adult day care, respite care, hospice care and more. Long-term care insurance can also help pay expenses for caring an individual who suffers from Alzheimer disease or other for! ms of dementia.Other benefits of long-term care insurance:
* Many older individuals may feel uncomfortable relying on their children or family members for support, and find that long-term care insurance could help cover the expenses. Without long-term care insurance, the cost of providing these services may quickly deplete the savings of the individual and/or their family.
* Premiums paid on a long-term care insurance product may be eligible for an income tax deduction depending on the age of the covered person. Benefits paid from a long-term care contract are generally excluded from income.

Types of Long Term Care Policies

Two types of long term care policies are currently being sold: Tax Qualified and Non-Tax Qualified.The Non-Tax Qualified was formerly called Traditional Long Term Care insurance. This type has been sold for over 30 years. It oftens includes a "trigger" called a "Medical Necessity" trigger. This means that the patient's own doctor, or that doctor in conjunction with someone from the insurance company, can state that the patient needs care for any medical reason and the policy will pay.The Tax Qualified who long term care insurance policies do not have a Medical Necessity trigger. In addition, they require that a person be expected to require care for at least 90 days, and be unable to perform 2 or more activities of daily living (eating, dressing, bathing, transferring, continence) without substantial assistance (hands on or standby) and that a doctor provides a Plan of Care; or that for at least 90 days, the person needs substan! tial assistance (hands on, standby or reminding) due to a severe cognitive impairment and a doctor provides a Plan of Care.Fewer and fewer non-tax qualified policies are available for sale. One reason is because consumers want to be eligible for the tax deductions available when buying a tax-qualified policy. The tax issues can be more complex than the issue of deductions alone, and it is advisable to seek good counsel on all the pros and cons of a tax-qualified policy vs. a non-tax-qualified policy, since the benefit triggers on a good non-tax-qualified policy are better (the tax-qualified policies carrying restrictions - by law - on when the policy holder can receive benefits).Once a person purchases a policy, the language cannot be changed by the insurance company and the policy is, if an individual policy, guaranteed renewable for life. It can never be cancelled by the insurance company.Group long term care policies may or may not be guaranteed renewable. Many group ! plans include language allowing the insurance company to repla! ce the p olicy with a similar policy, but allowing the insurance company to change the premiums at that time. Some group plans can be cancelled by the insurance company. These are not recommended.

Complications encountered with eligibility and deductibles

Many policies have deductible periods or elimination days that may differ from 30 to 90 actual calendar days. Many policies require intended claimants to provide proof of 30 to 100 service days of paid care before any benefits will be paid. Some require you to pay for long-term care up to one year before, you will be eligible to collect benefits.

Gyokuro[Japanese terms]


Gyokuro (玉露 ''gyokuro'' or "jewel dew") is a fine Green tea from Japan. Its flavor is generally sweet and delicate with notes of grass. Selected from a grade of green tea known as ''tencha'' (天茶), Gyokuro's name refers to the pale green color of the infusion.Some time before gyokuro is harvested, the tea plants are covered with shades, which slows down the leaf growth, increases the amount of caffeine, and makes the leaves a bit darker, with a bolder green color, than most green teas.Considered the highest grade of tea available in Japan, Gyokuro is usually quite expensive and not widely available. Most of this premium tea is grown in the Uji area of Japan.Matcha, which is used in the Japanese tea ceremony (chanoyu), is made by grinding gyokuro into a fine powder. It is then mixed with water using a whisk.

''This article is about the flower. For other definitions, see Buttercup (disambiguation).''
over 400; see text
''Ranunculus'' is a large genus of about 400 species of plants in the Ranunculaceae. It includes the buttercups, spearworts, water crowfoots and the lesser celandine (but not the greater celandine of the poppy family Papaveraceae).They are mostly herbaceous perennials with bright yellow or white flowers (if white, still with a yellow centre); some are annuals or biennials, and a few have orange or red flowers.The Water crowfoots (''Ranunculus'' subgenus ''Batrachium''), which grow in still or running water, are sometimes treated in a separate genus ''Batrachium''. They have two different leaf types, thread-like leaves underwater and broader floating leaves. Buttercups usually flower in April or May. All ''Ranunculus'' species are poisonous when eaten fresh by cattle, horses, and other livestock, but their acrid taste means they are usually left uneaten. Poisoning can occur where buttercups are abundant in overgrazed fields where little other edible plant growth is left, and ! the animals eat them out of desperation. The poisons are degraded by drying, so hay containing dried buttercups is safe.Some species are popular ornamental flowers in horticulture, with many cultivars selected for large and brightly coloured flowers.An old superstition says that if you hold a buttercup under your face, and yellow light is reflected on your face, it means that you like butter.
