The embargo has been a financial success for those Cubans fortunate enough to make it to the US. Under the law, they receive unique and highly favorable treatment, including immediate cash benefits that are more than most Cubans make in ten years, granting of permanent residency a year after arrival, as well as eligibility for government benefits, such as Medicaid, supplemental social security income, and child care.

Meanwhile, if the embargo is lifted and we resume normal relations, of 11 million currently residing in Cuba, 8 million most probably want to move to Miami.

No doubt A.D.H.D is a spectrum disorder and less structured environments like a start-up would only work in part of the population. Given that I find this balanced and valuable , a supplemental advance to current thinking.

I believe that graduation rates reflect the level of an institution's commitment to its students. An institution that is committed to the graduation of its students will insure that supplemental teaching, tutoring, mentoring, and advisement resources are available and properly funded, and will also make sure that ALL students recognize it is to their advantage to take advantage of these resources. Admission should be only the first step towards the completion of a contract that states that a student who puts in the sincere effort to succeed will have institutional support to make sure they do.

I was also going to make this point. The CSA arrangement works a lot better from a cost perspective. We also grow some supplemental stuff. It's a better deal and you get a wide array of vegetables for a pretty reasonable amount of money. Still not cheap I would say, but affordable and fair. This time of year, I've got all the homemade pickles, fresh tomatoes, and squash I can handle. Not to mention beautiful eggplants, salad greens, kale, herbs- you name it. Average cost per week: $23. If you've got some CSA's in your area, check it out. Some farms may also offer subsidies for lower income people.

Would that Congress was as concerned about the free loaders on Social Security. That is, people who have never worked in the US and never paid taxes in the US but receive, indefinitely, Supplemental Social Security.
That would be every single Cuban migrant.
That check from SSI is supplemented by Section 8 Housing, SNAP and Medicaid.
We'll teach those Castro's to mess with the gringos.

Since you feel this way, please don't complain when you see families who have far more children than they can equitably support. And especially don't complain when you see them using "welfare," such as supplemental nutrition assistance.

As an organic dairy farmer in your region, I can assure you that our cows are indeed "real" despite the fact that our climate doesn't sustain year-round grazing. Our animals are on grass as much of the year as possible. The rest of the year, they do require supplemental feed, as do virtually all cows save for those raised in selective areas. : )

Rima, see the table on page 28 of this paper:

They referenced studies show recidivism rates from 1,1% to 10%. The study that found a 10% rate included two subjects who circumvented the therapy by taking supplemental testosterone, which reverses the effects of the treatment.

Technology may be a supplemental tool for education in the US, but I see it as a lifesaver for kids in developing countries who currently have no access to education.
