Links to the page we are now on May 13, 2011

The link supplied is to the page we are now on. I have reopened the ticket and suggested the answerer click the link he has supplied and see for himself. But that is not helping us.

Meanwhile - having missed the first powwow - and having checked that these points were not mentioned in the previous one - there are two things I was thinking I would want to discuss:
(1) Liability insurance - could we as Certified Pros possibly negotiate some good deals on translator liability insurance? If there is already a forum on this, would like to have info.
(2) Athens and other online content. I often need to research technical and medical terms on the Internet for translation purposes but I don't actually need access to the article for any other purpose. I am continually frustrated by not being able to gain access to online documents to which one needs to subscribe. I was wondering whether we could use our group identity to pressurise for some type of free or very cheap access for translators (limited if necessary) to online material which is otherwise restricted. Any ideas or reactions on this?

(1) Professional liability insurance. Can the Certified Proz translators' network negotiate any preferential deals for members on this? (Maybe there is already a thread on Proz. If so please advise)
(2) Athens and other similar online content. I often need to look things up for translation purposes and find access to subscription periodicals barred. I was

I was wondering whether as a translators' network we could agitate for free or very cheap (limited if necessary) access to online content for translators.
Those were my two ideas that I wanted to raise. I may not have time to await any reactions from the group as to whether these two ideas are feasible.
