History Repeating? (no more please)

At a time of fear, when the military is effectively a member of the government coalition, and the new army chief is saying things like "everyone is obligated, in an act of loyalty, to root out certain individuals", it's worth remembering the past, and hope that lessons have been learnt.

We all know about Thaksin's popular "drug war", and the October 1973 and 1976 massacres, but less is known of the horrific efforts to suppress communist suspects in the south in the early 1970's:

Policy of government to "decisively flush out"
"merely followed orders"

Arrested and most underwent "re-education"

They bore no grudges.

"Each side claimed to fight for a better ruling system"

"Danger lurked in every corner"

As a former journalist, Kofman appreciates that specialists such as researchers, lawyers, and other people need to have to know that they can trust their transcripts. As an outcome, Trent marries two pieces of computer software to permit for a toolset that not only carries out automated speech-to-text but also offers an easy, intuitive way to speedily search, confirm and if needed to correct the output.

I totally agree with Sonia. Really like the course, but there is no way to total it in four months unless you commit to it 24/7. You will either go blank or end up with carpal tunnel. All joking aside. I have completed 60% if the instruction. I am wrapping up the clinical notes section (300 dictations w/still 500 to go!) This Transcription Services Online is intensive but really feel confident that I will know how to do the job when I finish. Also, from what I see when I search for jobs, there are a lot of organizations hiring. No shortage there. My guidance: Do not rush it, top quality more than quantity. Develop a strong understanding so when you are prepared to interview and test for a job, you are not disappointed. I think it's an excellent perform-from-home chance!
