Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Are we bored again. OK, I'm an Equity Securties trader for subsidiary of Phoenix Home Life Insurance Company. I trade common and preferred stocks and stock options for a closed end utility income fund, reit fund, large cap value, core and relative value funds and a midcap fund. I also create models to predict movements in interest rates, so I guess you would say I am also a quantitative analyst.

I work part time at HA as an AA in a crazy group called DVS (part of DCS within TBA) that administers participants' trades, dividends, etc. within clients' 401k plans. I do boring stuff like sort faxes and do special projects as they're assigned to me, like pulling monthly ROR history for benchmark funds through Micropal and then formatting it to be loaded to our tables and crap. Woohoo. Oh, 'cept I like my job.

Process Engineer in the packaging dept at a pharmaceutical company that manufactures human biological products derived from blood plasma. Very lucrative business if you can stay one step ahead of the FDA regualtions.

Try working at a drug company sometime, you'll quickly realize that drugs are NOT overpriced, they are cheap as hell considering we jump through more hoops than a circuis dog on crack.

Very good question, I would like to know what I do to deserve a paycheck I wont question it though, I like money. Anyway, here is some of the stuff that the group I am in does...right off the website so I dont have to write anything...


Service Options
Ameritech offers six different broadcast video services to most appropriately meet your needs. All services utilize high-quality fiber optic transport to send NTSC-quality video and accompanying audio signals from point-to-point or point-to-multiple points simultaneously.

Broadcast Video Service Options

Option
Features

Serial Component Video Service (SCVS)
This highly-effective, premises-to-premises or premises-to-video hub service supplies up to four audio channels. The digital, 270Mbps, D1 format produces no image degradation and is compatible with digital TV and video for the post-production industry.

TV Analog Video (TV1)
This service transports one channel of video and up to four associated audio channels from premises-to-premises or premises-to-video hub. It is a cost-effective baseband solution that provides a high-quality, secure signal.

Ameritech Digital Video Service (ADVS/TVD)
This premises-to-premises or premises-to-video hub digital service includes up to four channels of associated audio. ADVS can be handed off in a standard NTSC analog format, or in a digitized 44.736Mbps format on matching transmit and receive vendor CODECs. ADVS provides a higher-quality picture over long distances because it gets less signal noise than analog services.

Ameritech Supertrunking Video Service (ASVS)
This service transports up to 110 analog multicast video and associated audio channels in a premises-to-premises, premises-to-video hub, or multipoint configuration. This service is ideal for interconnecting cable TV headends, offering improved signal quality and reliability compared to microwave technology.

Ameritech Multichannel Video Service (AMVS)
This premises-to-premises or premises-to-video hub service transports up to 16 high-quality video channels with up to four audio channels each. This service is offered in analog and 2.3Gbps optical hand-off versions.




Features


Fiber-optic transport - Offers the best possible quality video and audio signal transmission.
Security - By using fiber-optic transport, Broadcast Video Services offers the most secure video and audio signal transmission available.
Multiple services - We offer six different broadcast video services to best meet the needs of diverse customers. These services accommodate one-way broadcasts of up to 80 channels with accompanying audio.
Purchase service as needed - Depending on channel capability, you can purchase services for a day, a month, or on a contractual basis.

Benefits


Enhanced collaboration - Enjoy real-time sharing of your video products for creative consultation and decision making. The digital format of the Serial Component Video Service (SCVS) offers zero image degradation for perfect picture transmission.
Clear, quick communication - Broadcast Video Services give you a means of high-quality, one-way video communications with the best signal quality and security available.
Consistency - Fiber optic transport of video and audio signals is unaffected by environmental conditions and offers a clear, NTSC-quality, image every time.
Complete service - With our convenient, one-stop shopping for all network links, equipment and services, you can focus time and resources on your core business.

Technical Specifications


TV1 - Bandwidth: 30Hz to 4.5MHz or 30Hz to 6.6MHz
ADVS - Bit rate: 45Mbps; Audio signal: 15kHz
AMVS - Multiple (up to 16) at 6MHz; Audio channels: 50Hz to 15kHz Customer Premises Transport is provided with a 2.38Gbps digital optical interface
WAVS - Bit rate: 20Mbps
SCVS - Bit rate: 270Mbps; D1 format

System Requirements
Customer premises equipment is required to produce the video and audio for transmission. We provide the necessary fiber-optic network and video hub for video and audio transport, as well as any necessary video-enabling network equipment.

Availability
Ameritech Broadcast Video Services are available only in selected areas; contact Ameritech for more information.

Pricing
Depending on the specific services you select, we offer flexible pricing options, including daily, monthly and ongoing term plans that cover 12, 24, 36 or 48 months.
