How to save your breasts and your wallet by October 2nd!

Insurance companies state that they are willing to pay 100% of a "screening mammogram", but not for the “I think we found something”; what the @#!$ does that mean?  In my case, I felt a lump, and made the mistake of mentioning it to the technician during my mammogram.  Should I have mentioned the lump, or should have I played dumb?  Well, mentioning the lump cost me $600, and that is with my health insurance coverage (part of that was the “you need to come back because I think we found something” factor).  So two mammograms, $600 out of my pocket, two missed days of work, 4 weeks of no good sleep (because I could not get an appointment any earlier), and a potential ulcer from all the stress….it was normal!  Was it worth it?  Could I have done things differently? Well….

Closure For Victims Of Gold Burglaries

NORTHERN Va. (WUSA) -- A huge victory for the Indian-American community in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties after a thief pleads guilty.

A New York woman pleaded guilty to 37 burglaries and stealing more than half a million dollars worth of gold and other valuables.

34-year-old Melinda Soto's crime spree has ended.  But she nearly got away with it all. Her husband Dagoberto Ramirez-Soto and another man Francisco Gray have also been charged. 

Soto will testify against her husband as part of the plea deal. Gray has been deported to Peru.

Manashi Laha had 100 thousand dollars worth of diamonds and family gold snatched up last October.

Manashi Laha says, "Wow! I believe there is a justice system. We feel safe again."

But feeling safe was hardly the case for her and her South Riding community and dozens of other South Asian Americans who became victims.
