Variations in medical savings accounts as of January 1, 2007, will attract new interest in the plans. However, there remains a gap in knowledge about the actual use of these plans. A recent article on the financial health of savings in the Wall Street Journal Online and questions about the possibility of using an HSA as a vehicle for savings for future expenses for the use of funds in the HSA to pay medical expenses immediately. Itemimplied that it was a matter of choice or election.

HSA many users are not aware that the IRS allows investors to HSA savers and time consuming.

As an affiliate of Entrust Group, we offer training courses for employers, employees and professional advisers, training on the rules of the HSA and HDHP. Surprisingly, consultants and users to understand much less real, as the HSA.

Contrary to popular belief, there is no effort for the HSAthe distribution of medical expenses. Select In other words, the owners, HSA to pay medical bills from his personal funds in May, rather than immediate return of the costs of their HSA, defer payment until they actually need the money. Meanwhile, the fund is to grow tax free. While the rest of the funds outside the HSA, more able to develop more. The crystals can be paid from his pocket and then reimbursed from the HSAThe next day, the next year or 20 years. The choice belongs to the owner of the HSA. So if a person unable to pay employees, so there’s really no reason to take the money from the HSA. The taxpayer has the option of taking a refund of disability. Therefore, the additional resources that will be delivered in May HSA-term higher returns. Our clients, who as a long-term investors to benefit from this approach because it allows for greater stability in generalThe balance of the account and the potential for growth.

Similarly, many taxpayers do not have, that the expenditure incurred for the balance of the HSA in May the following year. The only requirement is that the expenditure is incurred before the HSA, there must be. Unfortunately, the IRS Form 8889 does not show that power “, the tax may help developers of clients, all costs which have not yet been repaid.

After theseThe reimbursement of the United Nations for the amount of the balance of HSA to determine which are eligible for the free distribution of emergency aid into account, our company has created a ‘no-tracking system for reimbursement to organize our customers and to document expenses reimbursed by the United Nations.

Bill Humphrey, director of EntrustIRA new direction, Colorado ( was an activist in favor of health savings accounts since its founding in 2004. Colorado Bill is a CPA and has worked to support educational programs for users, and to clarify PCA Health Plan in order to develop understanding and use of the HSA. Entrust New Direction has plans to direct Internet users to HSA and the employer plans to adopt high-deductible health for their businesses to anticipate.

History of the Turboencabulator
An early reference to the turbo-encabulator appeared in an article by New York lawyer Bernard Salwen in Time on April 15, 1946. Part of Salwen’s job was to review technical manuscripts. He was amused by the jargon and wrote the classic description of a non-existent turboencabulator .
In 1955 the turboencabulator was supposedly described by a “J.H. Quick” in “The Institution of Electrical Engineers, Students Quarterly Journal” 25 (London), p184 in 1955 . (Other sources give vol 15 no. 58 p. 22, December 1944.)

Page 2 of 1962 description of a turboencabulator “made” by GE
In 1962 a turboencabulator data sheet was created by engineers at General Electric’s Instrument Department, in West Lynn, Massachusetts. It quoted from the previous sources and was inserted into the General Electric Handbook . The turboencabulator data sheet had the same format as the other pages in the G.E. Handbook. The engineers added “Shure Stat” in “Technical Features”, which was peculiar only to the Instrument Department, and included the first known graphic representation of a “manufactured” turboencabulator using parts made at the Instrument Department.
Circa 1988 the former Chrysler Corporation “manufactured” the Turboencabulator in a video spoof. See external link in the bottom of this article.
Circa 1997 Rockwell Automation “manufactured” the renamed Retro-Encabulator in another video spoof. See external link in the bottom of this article.
The technical descriptions of all these turboencabulators remain remarkably similar over the years.
Typical technical description
The following quote is from the Time article. “General Electric”, “Chrysler” and “Rockwell Automation” use many of the same words.
“Work has been proceeding in order to bring perfection to the crudely conceived idea of a machine that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such a machine is the ‘Turbo-Encabulator’.
“The original machine had a base-plate of prefabulated amulite, surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings were in a direct line with the pentametric fan. … The main winding was of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots in the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a nonreversible trem’e pipe to the differential girdlespring on the ‘up’ end of the grammeters.
“Forty-one manestically spaced grouting brushes were arranged to feed into the rotor slipstream a mixture of high S-value phenylhydrobenzamine and 5% reminative tetryliodohexamine. Both of these liquids have specific pericosities given by P = 2.5C.n^6-7 where n is the diathetical evolute of retrograde temperature phase disposition and C is Cholmondeley’s annular grillage coefficient. Initially, n was measured with the aid of a metapolar refractive pilfrometer … but up to the present date nothing has been found to equal the transcendental hopper dadoscope. … Undoubtedly, the turbo-encabulator has now reached a very high level of technical development. It has been successfully used for operating nofer trunnions. In addition, whenever a barescent skor motion is required, it may be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocating dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.”
Fact and Fiction
While the turboencabulator is completely made up, most of the brands and divisions mentioned in the videos exist and are accurately described. Allen-Bradley manufactures controls. Dodge Power Transmission manufactures gears and bearings. Reliance Electric manufactures motors, and Rockwell Software is a division of Rockwell Automation.
The equipment shown in the original Chrysler video are a real Chrysler four-wheel drive transaxle and diagnostic equipment, and the Rockwell video uses real parts that can be ordered from Allen-Bradley, including the motor control center (MCC) that is being described as the retro-encabulator.
Most generators operate by the “relative motion of conductors and fluxes”. On the other hand, the Retro-Encabulator is said to use the “modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive directance”. As plausible as this may sound to non-engineers, “modial” and “directance” are not even words, much less meaningful engineering terms. Some of the other parts mentioned in the video, (e.g., “differential girdle spring” and “dingle arm”) help signal even the technically non-proficient that it is a joke.

Time; June 3, 1946; If the sackful of mail we have received from you is any indication, the story of “The Turbo-Encabulator in Industry” struck many a responsive chord. Aside from those of you who wanted to be reassured that TIME hadn’t been taken in, we received the customary complaints about using too much technical jargon for the layman, observations such as “My husband says it sounds like a new motor; I say it sounds like a dictionary that has been struck by lightning”; suggestions that it “might have come out of the mouth of Danny Kaye,” and plaintive queries like: “Is this good?” Wrote one bemused U.S. Navyman: “It’sh poshible.” To some the turbo-encabulator sounded as though it would be a “wonderful machine for changing baby’s diapers.” A reader from Hoboken assumed that it would be on sale soon in Manhattan department stores. Many of you wrote in to thank us for illuminating what you have long wanted to tell your scientist friends.

One of the most important aspects of being a healthy skeptic is knowing that just because a scientific study was done on a topic does not mean the study was done well, or that the conclusion the authors reach is supported by what they actually did. But when someone states that a particular study has major flaws or was well-done, what precisely does that mean?

In this video, Dr. John Cmar analyzes two different journal articles in detail, focusing on the good, the bad, and the ugly of how studies are done and interpreted.

John Cmar, MD, has been long enthralled with horrible infections that could spell doom for humankind, as well as sanity and skepticism in the practice of medicine. He is currently an Instructor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and the Assistant Director of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. He is the lead physician in Sinai’s Ryan White initiative, which provides medical care and social assistance to patients with HIV infection who are without medical insurance.

In his role as Program Director for the Internal Medicine residency program at Sinai, he teaches an annual course series in Evidence-Based Medicine, among many other duties.
He also does Infectious Diseases outreach in Baltimore television and print media, and is the guest-in-residence on the monthly Midday on Health show with Dan Rodricks on 88.1 WYPR radio in Baltimore. John is a science fiction and fantasy fan, avid gamer, and podcast enthusiast. He currently blogs and podcasts on skeptical, medical, and geeky topics as Saint Nickanuck of the Tundra at
