What is an impairment rating?
An Impairment rating is where specific guidelines are used by the physician who will determine what % of function of that body part has been lossed due to injury/condition etc... For example if you are a construction worker and lets say you lose your left little toe, the Impairment rating may be 4% to the whole foot and 1% to the lower extremity..because the loss is greater to the foot but to your whole leg it is not AS big of loss if that makes since. Then this % is given a money value depending on your states worker comp laws etc..and you may be due a specific sum of money.

Yes....He stuttered Answer Exodus 4:10 - 'Moses said to the LORD, "O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.' An actual problem is not specified, but it could be that Moses considered himself not up to the public speaking required of him. Better Answer No, Actually Moses said to the Lord that he was not up to the job, but in the New Testament, Stephen tesitfied that Moses was a great and powerful speaker. Moses, probably, said that he was not up to the job of leading the people out of bondage because Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.) Num 12:3 (NASB77) Stephen's statement was a truthful statement. In addition, Moses was always the one doing the talking before the leaders and the people, and he was never said to have stuttered, nor was said to have spoken in any embarrasing manner.

An impairment rating is a rating that tries to assign a value to your best recovered state after an injury. Lets say that you had normal grip strength and now you have 75% of that grip strength. There are tests and charts and exams etc.. that can determine what percentage this would be. Every state can be different because it involves workers comp too. So the orthopedist may determine that you have a 15% impairment rating to your hand as a whole and 3% to the arm as a whole. Then you would have to see how much that translates to under your work comp laws.

You are probably referring to .08% alcohol in the blood stream, since at 8% you would have been dead long before. In any case, in Canada at least, .08% blood alcohol is the amount considered to cause serious impairment in the operation of a motor vehicle. This amount or above will usually result in a "driving under the influence" (DUI) charge. Many other countries have even lower limits, with a few allowing no alcohol at all while driving (this is true in some parts of Canada for beginning drivers). The figure itself means that 8/10,000'ths of your blood consists of ethyl alcohol. At .20% most people will become unconscious; at .40% death from alcohol poisoning occurs.

Postlingual hearing impairment refers to hearing loss that occurred after language was developed. This is especially important in children during their formative years when their speech and language skills are developing. The basic building blocks for learning, reading, spelling are borne from good listening, auditory memory, and auditory discrimination and if there is hearing loss the old adage - junk in, junk out - prevails. The methods to teach the postlingually deaf are much different than the methods to teach the prelingually deaf. Postlingual hearing loss is also more common and the listener often does not notice the loss as much as those around him or her.

When assets are recorded a company's balance sheet, they are valued at historical cost (what was paid for the asset), less any accumulated depreciation or amortization if applicable. This holds true even if the market value of the asset is considerably more than what the company paid for it. However, if the market value of a company's assets drops significantly below the asset's historical cost, then it sometimes becomes necessary to revalue the asset at the lower market value. This revaluation is called impairment. When it is appropriate to impair an asset depends on the type of asset in question. The difference between the current book value of the asset, and the value of the asset after impairment, is your impairment expense (cost).
