She Needs Our Help

April 15, 2010
As anyone who has been through this situation knows the costs of attorneys. I was speaking with a woman that went through a huge custody battle over her 2 children with her exhusband and it ended up costing her over $31,000.
We do not have that kind of money to fight someone that seems to have endless amounts or access to money.
Please help!
April 10, 2010
I am setting up this blog in hopes that people will respond with encouraging words, links to assist, or with helping hands. I am asking for help; emotionally, physically, and financially. Please read the rest of her story.
My daughter, who is such an incredible person and mother, is being rail-road by her ex-husband. I am asking and pleading for help for her. We cannot fight this battle on our own any longer.
My daughter has recently had a birthday where she turned 29 and instead of being happy and celebrating the joys of her life; she is being harassed, and bullied to the point to where she feels like she is loosing a battle for custody of her 5 year old son. She has been investigated, watched by private investigators and is now becoming bankrupted due to his actions against her.
She was divorced from a man a year and a half ago. This man had the affair on her, and is now married to this woman. This woman is much older than my daughter and her ex-husband, but has money. The divorce was finalized in mediation and just days after this he began threatening her with modification. He may feel that he 'lost' the divorce. The custody was set 50/50 with him paying a minor child support payment of $158 a month. The threats went empty until this year.
My daughter is a single mom, going to a big university, purchasing her own home and working on being a better provider for herself and for her son. He is using these as reasons as to why HE thinks she cannot provide or be a stable enough parent to care for her son. He is also stating that since she is living on minor assistance from Health and Welfare that he sould be granted full custody since he is remarried and has more income.
She is in this postion due to his actions; he caused her to be a single mother. She is all of these things because of him. And he wont stop for anything until he ruins it all for her. She refuses to be like a person whom is 35 on a 3rd marriage, or like a sibling whom is 39 and on her 7 marriage. These type of people move onto their next victim leaving their past ones in ruins.

He may have manipulated a medical cheap viagra to file a case with child protective services to get her investigated. This medical cheap cialis examined my grandson for physical and sexual abuse based on his testimony. This man may have put a 5 year old boy through an exam for sexual abuse for no reason but maybe to get that doctor to do his dirty work. When my daughter called this medical doctor to find out why the medical doctor said that she had a responsibility to file the complaint based on the information that was given to her. It the letter from the doctor she was detailed in stating things like: the 'father is concerned', or the 'father believes'. This doctor is a neighbor of the ex-husband and probably goes to the same LDS church as him and his new wife. When CPS did their investigation on my daughter and her son they couldn't find anything and stated that they will be closing the case against her soon. The medical doctor stated the reasons behind her actions were a result of what she was being fed, but doesn't see any medical concerns with the child.
The new wife does taxes and has her CPA license. I would bet my life on that they were the ones that filed papers with the IRS and submitted them pretending to be my daughter. Causing her to be investigated by the IRS. She is now having to battle with the IRS about her first time home owner credit.
I do not know what else this man has done. This man will not stop. This man will keep going until we all band together and say enough is enough. He is trying to break my daughter; emotionally, physically, financially, and make her have to drop out of college.
We had lunch today and she told me that he can make her sell everything, but he cannot take her soul. She refuses to break. Please help her in her fight. If you can send her just $5, and then pass this on to someone else that can send her $5. This is going to help her with attorney fees, and help her to stay in her own home. A house that she on her own turned into a home for her and her 5 year old son. Prayers will also be accepted. :)
Thank You, and God Bless.

FAQ on working for the EU

See also: cialis | 

Many of you have sent us specific questions and comments about how confused you were with the different types of categories and contracts on offer by the EU and as a result, were not sure about the different conditions involved.

All EU permanent officials are selected by means of open competitions that are published in the Official Journal of the European Union and on the EPSO web site :

EPSO cannot consider any applications or CVs that are submitted outside the framework of an official competition. All relevant information about recruitment for the EU institutions can be found on the EPSO web site.

In addition, the EU institutions also take on a limited number of temporary and auxiliary staff as well as a few agency staff on a fixed-term contract. By 30 April 2006, it was envisaged that temporary and auxiliary staff contracts would be replaced by new type of contracts, and non-permanent staff known as contractual agents.

What do current temporary agents in the Commission do?

Temporary agents may be employed to perform a wide variety of tasks, within one of the following categories:
(a) for non-standard (highly specialised jobs) or temporary tasks;
(b) to make up for staff shortages in cases where competition reserve lists have been exhausted ;
(c) for Commissioners' private offices ('cabinets');
(d) for specific requirements in the scientific sector.

As a temporary agent in type (d), you could work in one of the various research centres set up by the EU to promote research and to manage European framework programmes for research and development. As a temporary agent in type (c), you could work in the private office of a Commissioner during their term in office.
Temporary agents in types (a) and (b) can be employed to do a wide variety of work, essentially the same kind of work as permanent Commission officials. However, this depends on factors such as the temporary needs of the Commission and the situation with regard to filling vacant posts.

Where can I find out about temporary agent posts?

If a Directorate-General wants to recruit a temporary agent for a highly-specialised job or temporary task (type a), they will send the job notice and the profile of the person they are looking to recruit to the Permanent Representations of the Member States and also publish it on the EPSO website. They may also publish the vacancy on their own DG website; so it is worth checking these sites regularly if there is a particular DG where you would particularly like to work.
You can also apply to be a temporary agent by introducing your details into the EU CV online database (or the ELSA database, if you are interested in the research field).

Once you have been recruited as a temporary agent, you will be graded according to the type of post you occupy, and your previous professional experience.
Although the rules on the length of initial contracts and subsequent contract extensions vary, as a rule, temporary agents in types (a), (b) and (d) may be hired by the Commission for a maximum period of six years and temporary agents who work in Commissioner's private offices are hired for a duration linked to the mandate of their Commissioner.
Temporary agents take part in the annual staff appraisal system that applies to permanent officials.

Your salary, benefits, and working conditions as a temporary agent are essentially the same as those of permanent officials. This covers the range of family allowances (including expatriation allowance), social security benefits such as medical insurance and pensions (pension rights are accumulated on the same basis as permanent officials), tax conditions, family-related leave, annual leave and working hours. Find out more in the section Permanent Officials.
As a temporary agent you may also be entitled to a temporary unemployment allowance, when your contract expires. For more information see Title 2 (Temporary Agents) in the Conditions of employment of other servants of the European Communities.

For more specific information please see the Staff Regulation of Officials of the European Communities link below;

The Commission employs staff on a temporary basis, mainly for secretarial work, on short term contracts through temping agencies.

Specific questions on CAST25/27 as a contract agent;

I'm in the CAST 25 database; am I obliged to participate also in CAST 27?

If a candidate is already in the database of CAST 25, the validity of which continues to the end of the three years, he/she is not obliged to participate in the CAST 27 selection but may do so even in a different profile and function group; in this case, successful candidates will be listed under 2 different profiles.

What type of contract can I expect?

There are two sub-categories of contract agent;

The first covers those who are hired to work:- in Commission Directorates-General and all other Institutions to do manual or administrative support-service tasks (Function Group I) ; - in Commission Offices attached to a Directorate-General, such as the two Offices for Infrastructure and Logistics in Brussels and Luxembourg and the Paymasters Office; - in Agencies; - in Commission Representations and Delegations. As a contract agent of this type (contract staff "3a") you would enjoy longer-term employment prospects, with an initial contract running for a maximum period of five years and renewable for a maximum of five years. The contract can be converted into a contract of indefinite duration.

The second sub-category covers contract agents that can be hired to work in Commission's DGs and other Institutions dealing with other tasks than manual and administrative support tasks (contract staff "3b"). That is to say, they are recruited:- temporarily to replace officials absent due to illness, maternity leave, etc.; - as a response to acute staff shortages at times of intense work pressure; - to undertake work for a temporary period providing additional capacity in specialised fields where officials with the required skills are not available. As a contract agent of this type, you would have short-term employment prospects, working on the basis of contracts running up to a maximum of three years. The minimum length of contract is three months.

Can a contractual position lead automatically to permanent employment?

No. Permanent recruitment is only possible via open competitions.

Is there a quota system for recruiting candidates of each Member State?

There is no national quota system for European civil servants, but the Institutions aim to recruit a broad geographical balance among the different Member States.

All contracts offered are managed directly by the Institutions, services or agencies concerned on a case- by-case basis and they are independent from the Office’s activities and principle mission.


Constantly check the EPSO website for all the latest calls for open competitions in order to get as organised as possible.

Preparatory courses
Member States - via their Permanent Representation office or other relevant organisation within their home country - sometimes organise courses aimed at training EU nationals for the European Institutions' open competitions. These courses are the sole responsibility of the Member State/accession country concerned and are entirely independent of the Selection Office.

Viagra Sildenafil: What Does Sildenafil Have in Common With Nitroglycerin and Car Exhaust and An Interactive Tutorial

Nitroglycerin and Viagra (sildenafil) probably don't occur to you in the same thought. It's hard to see what they have in common unless it's the explosive consequences of their use!

Besides being used to blow things up, nitroglycerin has been employed by doctors since the late 1800s to relieve the pain of angina in the heart. Ironically, it was prescribed to Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and the Nobel Prize for his angina.
Nitroglycerin causes the coronary arteries of the heart to expand (dilate) and so more blood can flow to the heart muscle itself. This happens because the nitroglycerin triggers the release of a tiny molecule in the lining of the arteries called nitric oxide. Nitric Oxide (chemical symbol NO ) relaxes the smooth muscles in the arterial walls. Viagra also works it's magic to prolong the expansion of the blood vessels in the penis by working on a product of nitric oxide NO . Amazingly, the nitric oxide in the penis is the same nitric oxide in the blood vessels of the heart</span> and they are both the very same poisonous nitric oxide that spews from car exhausts creating smog and acid rain!

See From Explosives to the Gas That Heals: Nitric Oxide in Medicineand an Illustrated Guide to Erectile Dysfunction from the National Institue of Health.

Touchy Topic Grounded in Science: Joke a Minute Topic

It's hard to say more than three sentences about this subject without a wise crack or joke. A search on Google reveals a seemingly endless stream of jokes and in your face advertisements about this subject. Even researchers have had a hard time controlling themselves. In 1983 a British scientist named Giles Brindley stunned an audience at a scientific meeting when he dropped his pants to illustrate how well his new treatment for erectile dysfunction worked.

Anatomy 101: What the Penis Looks Like Under the Hood:An Interactive Tutorial

Caution: the following is a graphic description!

This is a topic you must discuss with your doctor.
The penis is composed of a number of tubes, sort of cylindrical balloons that extend the length of the penis. Two of these tubes running the length of the penis are called the corpora cavernosa from the Latin corpora meaning bodies and cavernosa meaning hollow spaces. The corpora cavernosa are two "hollow cylinders" that have spongy tissue with lots of spaces in them. The two tubes are analogous to long deflated balloons. In the usual penile configuration the two corpora cavernosa are deflated. But when they fill with blood the corpora get inflated, the penis gets enlarged and the result is an erection.

Interactive Tutorial

You can watch and hear an interactive tutuorial on erectile dysfunction from the National Library of Medicine at Interactive Tutorial on Erectile Function.

How It Happens: The Yin and Yang

When a man is turned on, sexually stimulated, it causes the production of nitric oxide in the penis. Specifically the release of nitric oxide in the blood vessels of the penis cause an enzyme to make a chemical called cGMP. It is cGMP that relaxes the smooth muscles in the blood vessels of the corpora cavernosum. Therefore the blood vessels get wider and the blood flows into the tubes and the corpora cavernosa fill up and enlarge. When you have more cGMP you have more dilated blood vessels and the spongy material in the two cavernosa can stay inflated with blood and the penis stays erect. cGMP is found elsewhere as well and is involved with vision as well as the kidneys to name just some places.

As a matter of fact sildenafil was discovered serendipitously by researchers looking for a drug to dilate the blood vessels of the heart.

Nitric Oxide is nitrogen and oxygen. Incredibly simple and vitally important as a chemical messenger in the body. It's hard to believe yet the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded for the elucidation of the mechanism of nitric oxide in the body.


Yin and Yang of Erection

There is of course a yin and yang. At the same time that there are forces favoring an erection there are forces opposing an erection in the form of an enzyme called PDE5 that is destroying the cGMP. Since the blood vessels stay dilated because of the cGMP, if you can keep the cGMP around longer you keep an erection longer. Sildenafil prevents the destruction of cGMP and so keeps the penis erect. Viagra blocks the PDE5 from destroying the cGMP and the erection is maintained. So sildenafil is called a PDE5 inhibitor.

Why Viagra Maintains an Erection but Doesn't Cause It

Still Need to Get "Turned On"

Senator Bob Dole and countless others are no doubt very happy that Viagra works to prevent the destruction of the cGMP. But it's the sexual stimulus, the "turn on" that causes the production of nitric oxide in the penis. Without the initial "turn on" the sildenafil has nothing to work on. That's why they advertise that it won't cause an erection. So sildenafil and the other PDE5 inhibitors result in the blood vessels being expanded for longer. This would explain why they have warnings about the danger of using the PDE5 inhibitors with heart drugs like nitrates.

New Competitors to sildenafil

Other PDE5 Inhibitors On the Erectile Dysfunction Market

Sildenafil has now been joined by two other PDE5 inhibitors on the market. One is called Levitra vardenafil and Cialis tadalafil. Among the ways they hope to distinguish themselves is the fact that cheap cialis has a longer half life so that it ought to stay around longer.

PDE5 Inhibitors May Help Plants Stand Up Straight Also

Scientists in Israel and Australia working on nitric oxide in plants have reported on experiments with sildenafil. An Israeli scientist, Yaacov Leshem, at Bar-Ilan University, and Ron Wills, at the University of Newcastle have reported that the PDE5 inhibitors might keep plants from wilting so soon. Professor Leshem got the idea because "plants share the same common denominator as humans - nitric oxide." See the report at Dr. Chlorophyll Gardening Suggestions.
