So, the Air Jordan V (5) “3Lab5″ is releasing at a retail price of 5 on September 21st? Who’s complaining? Certainly not Bow Wow.

Bow Wow on the other hand already has his pair and waster no time at pulling them out as he’s spotted here rocking the “3Lab5″ in style in an all-black ensemble alongside Angela Simmons and 2 Chainz on stage at BET’s 106 & Park.

Well, you only have one more week to get your business together in hopes of landing a pair. Are you ready?

BRONX NEWS: Bronx nursing homes must repay Medicaid

Three New York nursing homes — including two in the north Bronx — were ordered to repay more than million to the state for overbilling Medicaid.

The Eastchester Rehabilitation and Health Care Center will have to cough up 8,068 for miscalculating Medicaid reimbursement rates, following an audit by the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General.

State auditors determined that the nursing home also improperly charged Medicaid for lab and medical services, and staff billed Medicaid for auto insurance payments and depreciation of vehicles but couldn’t provide proof the cars were used for patient care, the auditors said.

The Morris Park Nursing Home owes 0,913 to the federally-funded healthcare system for the poor, after auditors found it miscalculated its tax reimbursements. The facility also reported vehicle expenses, but failed to show how the payments helped patients.

Morris Berkowitz, administrator for the Morris Park Nursing Home, said the state’s findings were “lies.”

“That’s a lie,” Berkowitz said. “It’s not true. This is definitely not true.”

The facilities have 60 days to request an administrative hearing and challenge the findings, a spokeswoman for the auditors said.

The third home ordered to repay funds is the Sands Point Center for Health and Rehabilition in Port Washington, Long Island, which owes 0,367 after an audit uncovered irregularities between mortgage payments and determined that the facility’s management billed Medicaid for luxury cars that were for their personal use, according to the state.

“One of the Medicaid program’s goals is to provide excellent health care at a cost that taxpayers can afford,” Medicaid Inspector General James Cox said. “Our work helps to contain costs while improving health care access and quality for Medicaid customers.”

Sands Point spokesman Timothy Brown said the state’s audit covered 2005 to 2008, a period in which the facility billed Medicaid million. Brown says the majority of the disputed expenses had to do with mortgage payments. He said Sands Point would pay ,000 to the state for vehicle leases.

“The majority, or nearly 90%, of the disallowed expenses relate to mortgage payments,” Brown said. “This discrepancy is due to a re-financing of the center’s mortgage.”

Representatives from the Eastchester Rehabilitation and Health Care Center did not return a call for comment Wednesday.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite – “6″ Logo PE

nike lebron 9 elite black red playoffs pe Nike LeBron 9 Elite 6 Logo PE

The Miami Heat had some high expectations for the 2012 NBA Playoffs. After all, they did project multiple championships, and after coming off a loss to the Dallas Mavericks in 2011, the Heat were even more prepared for the grueling second season known as the Playoffs. During the postseason, LeBron wore several PE colorways of the Nike LeBron 9 Elite, like this clean all-black version with a metallic red Swoosh. What we do get to see here is the dope “6″ logo on the inner side of the heel – a nice precursor to all the LeBron X joints that went with the anchored logo spot for all of its releases. We’ve got additional angles below so take a look and see the entire listing from ronnihughes on eBay.
