Changes to the GI Bill: A Quick Review

first_imgBy Carol ChurchThe GI Bill has been an incredibly important piece of legislation for service members, providing highly valuable education and mortgage assistance to millions of veterans since World War II. After rumblings of change for some time, a new bill has recently been passed that alters some provisions of the bill. Known as the “Forever” GI Bill because it extends education benefits for a lifetime (instead of ending them at 15 years after discharge for recent veterans), it is generally good news for service members. Below, you’ll find a summary of some of its more important provisions.End of the 15-year phase-out for post-9/11 GI Bill benefitsIn the past, veterans had to use their education benefits within 15 years of their last active duty period. This rule no longer exists for anyone who leaves the military after January 1, 2013. Thus, these education benefits can be used nearly “forever.” The end of the 15-year rule also applies to spouses receiving benefits through the Fry Scholarship program.More benefits for Purple Heart recipientsThose who received a Purple Heart on or after 9/11 are now entitled to receive money at the 100% benefit level, even if they did not serve for 36 months.Coverage for career / technical school and new technology coursesGI Bill benefits can now be used to pay for schooling at career and technical schools.More time to complete certain degreesSome desirable and lucrative degrees in science and technology may take additional time to complete. Under the new law, there is money for students to take an additional year of classes in certain subjects, on a first-come, first-served basis.Extension of Yellow Ribbon benefitsThe Yellow Ribbon program helps lower the costs of education by reducing the amount of money students have to pay towards expenses not covered under the GI Bill. Previously, the program was available only to those eligible for 100% GI bill coverage, but it will now be available to surviving spouses and children as well as members on active duty.Help for students who got scammedIt is extremely frustrating for students to use their education credits on a school or university that then folds, taking a student’s credits with it. Under the new law, students in this situation can have their educational benefits restored without penalty.Easier to transfer benefitsOne of the great aspects of these education benefits is that the veteran can transfer them to his or her dependents. In the past, however, it was not possible to change who got the benefits if the person they were transferred to died. Now this can be done. In addition, dependents whom have had benefits transferred to them by the veteran now can transfer the benefits to another eligible dependent if the veteran has died.Changes to survivor/dependent benefitsUnder the new bill, veterans’ survivors and dependents who are receiving money for education can get more money, but it will be available over a short overall time period (36 months, instead of 45).Different eligibility rulesThought it is too complicated to get into there, the percentage of benefits received by servicemembers with different amounts of active duty has changed, generally to make it easier to get more benefits. This change will help Reserve members.Housing stipend changesWhere is the money for all these changes coming from? There will be a slight decrease in housing stipends for students—1%. This will only apply to those enrolling in benefits after Jan 1, 2018, not to those currently receiving stipends.How to Collect BenefitsTo find out more about GI benefits and individual eligibility, visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website or your local Veterans Affairs office.Join us Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 11 a.m. ET for a 90-minute webinar, “Paying for College: The Forever GI Bill and Repayment Plans.” RSVP today!References:Gross, N.

Theatre group of Indian professionals makes waves in Britain

first_imgIndian doctors, accountants, IT experts and others bring more than their professional skills to the United Kingdom. Many form groups that make waves in the arts, music, sports and Eastern Thespians, a theatre group combining east-west idioms, is one of the latest.After staging five plays on contemporary political and other themes at major platforms such as the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Chelsea Theatre and Rich Mix Eastend, the group founded in 2012 has received much critical acclaim.Founders of the London-based group told Hindustan Times on Sunday that the effort is to present an image about India beyond that of Bollywood and the still largely entrenched orientalist view of Rajas, snake charmers and rope ladders.Read it at Hindustan Times Related Itemslast_img read more

What would a Euro Super League look like?

first_imgUEFA Champions League European Super League: What would a breakaway elite competition look like? Oli Platt 07:10 11/1/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(3) Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid Getty Images UEFA Champions League Real Madrid Borussia Dortmund Bayern München PSG Manchester United Chelsea Roma Atlético Madrid Barcelona Juventus Monaco Sevilla Liverpool Tottenham Hotspur Napoli Manchester City Arsenal Internazionale Milan A new top flight for the continent’s biggest teams has been the subject of regular rumours but what format it might adopt remains up for debate The current system of national football leagues has been in place for decades, and has set the foundation of today’s huge global game.But as football continues to grow wealthier and wealthier, becoming a multi-billion dollar industry at the top level, there are some who would like to see that system fundamentally changed.There has been regular rumours in recent years around the idea of a European Super League, which could bring the top clubs on the continent together. Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player It would mean the end of competitive football as we know it, and Goal has all the information you need to know about what it might entail. WHAT IS THE EUROPEAN SUPER LEAGUE? Lionel Messi BarcelonaThe European Super League is the common name given to a potential future breakaway league formed by Europe’s top clubs.The idea has been floated on a regular basis over the past few years as the gulf between the clubs regularly contending in the latter stages of the Champions League and those they compete with week in, week out in domestic leagues has grown.According to a report in Marca earlier this year, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain in particular are pushing for a new structure centred around a European top flight.Those clubs have been dominant in their respective leagues in recent years, winning 18 of 20 titles between them over the past five seasons.In addition to the lure of greater competition, the Super League’s proponents see far more significant financial rewards on offer if the best clubs in the world were to play on a more regular basis.By at least partially withdrawing from national competition and creating a league containing all of the world’s best players in line with the NFL or the NBA, the clubs involved could benefit from huge television rights deals.The NFL, for example, currently makes $4.95 billion a year out of its US rights deals alone, which dwarfs the $1.57bn a year the Champions League broadcast agreements bring in globally.That is despite the fact that football has far greater appeal all over the world, with far more viewers watching the Champions League final than the Super Bowl each year.WHICH TEAMS WOULD BE IN A EUROPEAN SUPER LEAGUE? Marco Verratti Neymar PSG Anderlecht Champions League 31102017No one can say for sure which clubs would be involved due to the lack of any formal discussions to this point.But the Super League would not be particularly super without Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Juventus, Bayern Munich and the ‘big six’ from the Premier League – Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal.On top of that, you can probably add Atletico Madrid, Sevilla, Napoli, Roma, Inter, Milan, Monaco and Borussia Dortmund.That’s 19 clubs, so around the figure you’d be looking for in a standard league. How far the Super League went beyond that – and whether or not it dipped into smaller leagues for teams – would depend on the structure decided upon.ARE THE CLUBS IN FAVOUR OF A SUPER LEAGUE?Paulo Dybala JuventusAs mentioned, the clubs that have reportedly been pushing for a Super League are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus and PSG.It should be stated that none of those clubs have come out and confirmed their interest publicly as of yet, and certain club executives have expressed opposition to it.But the most notable feature of that group is the absence of any clubs from the Premier League.The reason for that is that England’s top flight is already doing very, very well when it comes to television money. The Premier League will make $3.7bn per year in its current rights deal, which is still less than the NFL but a lot closer than the Champions League.A more direct comparison, though, is with other European leagues and that is where the Premier League’s riches stand out to an even greater extent.In La Liga, the system is more tilted in favour of the big clubs because the value of each team’s games is taken into account when the total pot is split up.But despite that advantage Real Madrid and Barcelona will only receive around $170 million each this season, according to AS, which would put them in seventh place at best in the Premier League’s earnings table.The figures are even lower elsewhere: Kicker projected Bayern Munich’s TV earnings at $114m in 2017-18 while Juventus are at around $135m a year, per Calcio Finanza.Even when their Champions League earnings are added in, it’s easy to see why the riches that could be on offer in a European Super League are tempting.WILL A SUPER LEAGUE EVER BECOME A REALITY? Robert Lewandowski Bayern MunichThe introduction of a European Super League would be a huge, fundamental change to the way top-level football is organised and would be enormously controversial if it was ever even publicly proposed.National leagues and associations would fight it, many fans would be in opposition and a long, drawn-out process would inevitably follow.Then there is the issue of whether UEFA would be involved or if the clubs would simply band together and go it alone, causing all kinds of issues in terms of the interrelationship between the Super League and other competitions.It’s hard to see it happening any time soon, then, but there are certain factors that could accelerate the process.One example lies in Catalonia apparent break for independence, which creates questions around Barcelona’s future in La Liga if they no longer play in a Spanish city.last_img read more

Urban Meyer’s Wife Is Still Getting Used To His New Job

first_img What is it @FakeUrban says? “Dang strange dreams…” 🤣🤣— Shelley ❌eyer (@spinnershells) May 30, 2019Since he started coaching in 1985, Meyer’s longest period away from the football field is one year. He left Florida after the 2010 season and took the year 2011 off before joining the Buckeyes in 2012.Despite having announced his retirement though, Meyer is still considered one of the top coaching targets in college football. Struggling programs such as USC would likely pay through the nose to bring Meyer into the fold.But if Meyer truly is committed to staying retired this time, it might take a while for his family and friends to get used to seeing him so close to home during the football season. urban meyer and his wife shelley meyer after the rose bowlPASADENA, CA – JANUARY 01: Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer and wife Shelley Meyer celebrate after the Ohio State Buckeyes win the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2019 in Pasadena, California.

US based Devon Energy says it intends to exit Canadian oilsands sector

first_img“With our world-class U.S. oil resource plays rapidly building momentum and achieving operating scale, the final step in our multi-year transformation is an aggressive, transformational move that will accelerate value creation for our shareholders by further simplifying our resource-rich asset portfolio,” said CEO Dave Hager in a news release.Devon’s shares rose by as much as 14.9 per cent to US$32.53 on the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday morning, but subsided to $30.69 by mid-afternoon.Other foreign companies that have reduced their ownership in the oilsands in recent years include Norway’s Statoil, France’s Total SA, Arkansas-based Murphy Oil and Houston-based ConocoPhillips.Devon owns the Jackfish steam-driven oilsands complex, which opened in 2007 and has grown through three identical phases to a capacity of 105,000 barrels per day of bitumen (although it has produced as much as 128,000 bpd in the past).It’s also the operator of the proposed 105,000-bpd Pike oilsands project in a 50/50 partnership with London-based BP PLC. Pike received provincial regulatory approval in 2014 but has not yet been green-lighted for construction.It also owns conventional heavy oil wells near Lloydminster, Alta., that produce more than 15,000 bpd. CALGARY, Alberta – Another foreign oil company says it’s getting out of the Canadian oilsands.Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy Corp. announced after markets closed Tuesday that it will pursue the “separation” of its Canadian assets and its Barnett Shale holdings in Texas from its core business.It intends to open data rooms for potential suitors in the second quarter and says it hopes to announce by year-end a deal or deals that could include an outright sale or creation of new companies to own and operate the assets. Both Pike and Jackfish are south of Fort McMurray near similar operations owned by Calgary-based rivals Cenovus Energy Inc., Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. and MEG Energy Corp.In research notes, CIBC analyst Jon Morrison says the Canadian assets would likely fetch between $3.5 billion and $5 billion if sold, while Eight Capital analyst Phil Skolnick estimates they could sell for between $7 billion and $9 billion.“Although we believe the asset base is attractive and provides a large base of concentrated production with a long resource tail, this is a challenging market to divest Canadian oil assets,” wrote Morrison, citing the current forced Alberta curtailments designed to draw down a glut of trapped crude oil and “the opaqueness and unknowns” due to a lack of long-term pipeline takeaway capacity in Western Canada.The most likely purchasers are large Canadian oilsands companies led by Imperial Oil Ltd., but possibly including Canadian Natural, Husky Energy Inc. and Suncor Energy Inc., he said.center_img Husky’s recent failed attempt to buy MEG for a combination of cash and shares makes it an obvious potential buyer, said Skolnick, but he suggested Devon’s preference for cash to pay down debt may make a Husky offer less likely.Imperial is the most likely buyer, he said, because Devon’s assets would give immediate exposure to improving heavy oil prices.That would allow Imperial to postpone its proposed Aspen oilsands project after recently calling its future into question in response to the Alberta curtailments and their affect on crude-by-rail economics.A spokesman for Husky said the company looks at any investment opportunities that arise but had no further comment.Spokespeople for Imperial, Suncor and Canadian Natural said their policies are not to comment on acquisition plans or speculation.In 2014, Canadian Natural acquired conventional Devon oil and gas operations in Western Canada for about $3.1 billion.The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Wolf Midstream Inc. spent $1.4 billion to buy Devon’s half ownership of the Access oilsands pipeline in 2016.last_img read more

UN Human Rights Council mulls new probe into Syrian crackdown

“Let me conclude by emphasizing the importance of holding perpetrators of crimes against humanity accountable,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay told the Council in Geneva as she presented the findings of an earlier mission by her Office covering the period from 15 March to 15 July, which was refused entry into Syria and based its report of first-hand interviews conducted with victims and witnesses. Ms. Pillay, who last week urged the Security Council to consider referring the “pattern of widespread or systematic human rights violations by Syrian security and military forces” to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, summarized a litany of Government abuses ranging from murder, enforced disappearances, deprivation of liberty and the torture even of children to an apparent “shoot-to-kill” policy against protesters with snipers posted on rooftops. “Former detainees cited cases of death in custody, including that of children, as a result of torture,” she said, noting that more than 2,200 people have been killed since mass protests began in mid-March, with more than 350 people reportedly killed Syria since the start of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan three weeks ago. “I wish to use this opportunity to once again call on the Syrian Government to immediately and fully halt its crackdown on peaceful protests and ensure the immediate and unconditional release of all detained for their participation in peaceful demonstrations,” she declared. Syrian delegate Faysal Khabbas Hamoui said the earlier report included statements that misconstrued the truth, including the reference to crimes against humanity, and reflected the view of States hostile to Syria in a bid to terrorize the country and wage war against it.The draft resolution which the Council is debating calls on the Syrian authorities to fully cooperate with a new “independent international commission of inquiry” into alleged violations of international law, including possible crimes against humanity. The commission, to be appointed by the Council, would cover the period from July and report back no later than the end of November. It would call on the Syrian Government to immediate halt “all human rights violations,” including “the continued indiscriminate attacks” on its people. “The international community has the duty not to allow these violations to go unpunished and to assess whether some of these violations may constitute crimes against humanity,” the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Juan Méndez, told the Council. “If we are serious about combatting human rights violations, we should not turn a blind eye to these egregious acts. We believe that those bearing the highest responsibility for such violations should be referred to the highest instances to be prosecuted and judged,” he said, speaking on behalf of the heads of various Council bodies. Beside Mr. Méndez they were: the Chairperson of the Coordination Committee of special procedures, Farida Shaheed; the Chairperson of the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, Jeremy Sarkin; and the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Christof Heyns. They said they had been alerted to “some of the worst violations a State can commit against its people.” While promising reforms and enacting new legislation, “the Government has unfortunately continuously stepped up the crackdown against protesters,” they added, deploring the denial of access to the earlier mission to gather first-hand information on the ground. “We urge the authorities to grant such free and unfettered access. This would also send a strong signal that the Syrian authorities are willing to cooperate with the United Nations.” The session will continue tomorrow.A UN humanitarian mission, which has been allowed into Syria to assess such needs as food and medicine, went to the central city of Homs today, but was advised to leave for security reasons when protests started.The mission, which is separate from the earlier mission from Ms. Pillay’s Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), did not come under fire, as has been reported by some outlets. 22 August 2011The United Nations Human Rights Council met in special session today to debate the urgent dispatch of a commission to Syria to investigate possible crimes against humanity in the Government’s “brutal” crackdown on largely peaceful protesters seeking its ouster. read more

CannTrusts Danish partner quarantines pot products linked to illegal growing

ALLEROD, Denmark — CannTrust Holdings Inc.’s Danish partner says it has quarantined a batch of products received from the licensed producer in connection with Health Canada’s recent discovery of illegal growing operations at its Ontario greenhouse.Stenocare says it has been in contact with the Danish Medicines Agency and the single batch has been put in quarantine for potential destruction, pending the ongoing investigation by Health Canada.The Danish company, which caters to medical cannabis patients, said it has worked with CannTrust to investigate the origins of all products it has received from the licensed producer and only one “very small” batch has been linked to the five unlicensed rooms.CannTrust said yesterday that it was notified by Health Canada that it had found illegal growing in five unlicensed rooms at its greenhouse between October 2018 and March 2019, before receiving the appropriate licences in April 2019.It said Health Canada seized roughly 5,200 kilograms of cannabis from the unlicensed rooms and CannTrust voluntarily put an additional 7,500 kilograms on hold from its Vaughan, Ont. facility, but confirmed that some product had been sold.CannTrust announced a joint venture with Stenocare and that it would a 25 per cent equity stake in March 2018, and made its first shipment of cannabis oil to Denmark in September 2018.“The related batch, very small and still in stock, has been identified and is put in quarantine,” Stenocare said in a statement. “This is not expected to have any negative impact on patients nor Stenocare.” The Canadian Press Companies in this story (TSX:TRST) read more

All Sask hospitals now monitoring for vapingrelated illness

TROY FLEECE / Regina Leader-Post Health Minister Jim Reiter has asked the province’s health officials to monitor for any potential vaping related-illness and is calling on parents to talk to their children about the risks associated with vaping.“I am concerned with the recent incidents of vaping related illnesses, as well as the high rates of vaping we are seeing among Saskatchewan youth,” said Reiter in a statement issued to media on Friday.“Although Saskatchewan has not recorded any instances of pulmonary illness associated with vaping similar to the recently reported cases in the United States and Ontario, earlier this week I directed Saskatchewan public health officials to monitor all cases as they present in intensive care units.”Saskatchewan’s chief medical health officer Saqib Shahab said he has notified all the province’s hospital intensive care units that all cases of non-infectious severe respiratory disease potentially due to vaping must be reported to local medial health officers by phone immediately.The number of severe lung illness cases believed to be caused by vaping across the United States has risen to 530, including seven deaths, and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention is still searching for a specific cause. On Wednesday, Canadian health officials confirmed one possible case, which wasn’t fatal, had surfaced in Ontario.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Shahab said that monitoring will continue in Saskatchewan until there is a better understanding of exactly what is causing these illnesses. Symptoms of the illness include coughing, shortness of breath, vomiting, fatigue and fever. He noted that in many of the U.S. cases, the patients had tampered with their vape liquid, adding substances like cannabis, but that this was not for all cases.“The key message right now is that if you’re not already a smoker, don’t start vaping. There’s no reason to vape,” Shahab told reporters on FridayEven for people who do smoke and are considering vaping as a healthier option, he warned that the health impacts of vaping are not fully known. He also voiced concern over the high rate of youth vaping in Saskatchewan. BRANDON HARDER / Regina Leader-Post A sign in the window of a Regina service station indicates vaping products are sold in the store. Vaping products in Regina. U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he planned to ban all flavours of vape juice except tobacco in an effort to make vaping less attractive to youth. The Government of Canada has not yet committed to any decisive action, but in an online update Friday Health Canada said: “The Government of Canada will continue to monitor all available data sources and surveillance systems for signals in Canada and will take action, as appropriate.”Imperial Tobacco Canada — which launched its first vaping product in Canada in May 2018 — is calling on the federal and provincial governments to look for “a balanced regulatory approach to vaping products” rather than a ban like the U.S. is planning, it said in a release issued Thursday.“The reported cases of acute respiratory illness highlight the importance of effective regulation and enforcement to ensure product safety,” said Eric Gagnon, the company’s head of corporate and regulatory affairs, in the statement.“We believe in balanced, reasonable regulations that offers adult smokers and vapers the confidence that the product they are using meets safety standards, is tamper resistant and is tested in accordance to consumer protection norms.”Instead of proposing a ban on vaping products, Imperial Tobacco Canada wants to see the Canadian government mandate that all vapour products sold in the country be tamper-resistant so that users cannot mix the purchased vape liquid with any other substance.Shahab said the Government of Saskatchewan is looking at implementing legislation to treat vaping products like tobacco products — including restricted marketing — and expects to see some kind of vaping legislation come into effect this fall.The provincial government is encouraging anyone with questions about non-severe symptoms they may be experiencing due to vaping to contact the Healthline at 8-1-1 or talk to their health care provider. read more

DC Stories Behind Those Salvation Army Bells Little Red Kettles

first_imgThey come out across America every Christmas season, the Salvation Army bell ringers and their red kettles. From sunup to sundown, their bells don’t stop ringing outside of department stores, grocery stores, malls and other places with heavy foot traffic. Some sing and dance, but they all spread holiday cheer while collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars to help others.Among them are Pamela Gratts, 51, and Cassandra Thomas, 50, who ring their bells outside of different locations in northwest Washington, D.C. Gratts, Thomas and thousands of others who stand proudly collecting money are called “the army behind the Army.”And behind many of those volunteers is a story of salvation and redemption.Pamela Gratts’ whole life changed in her 39th year. A self-described workaholic, Gratts moved to Washington from Kansas City, Mo., for work. She spent her days caring for patients as a nurse at the Washington Hospital Center.  “I had no worries in the world,” said Gratts. “I had no children, a nice home, a car, insurance, and a career that I loved.“My mother used to always say to me, ‘You are just one paycheck away from being at the same level as someone beneath you.’” She never expected that someone to be her.  “I had a stroke, and in a blink of an eye, I had nothing,” she said.When Cassandra Thomas, who Gratts befriended 34 years earlier in Jackson, Miss., heard the news, she came to be by Gratts side.  Thomas struggled with drug addiction, but came to help.“When I got sick, she dropped everything to come take care of me,” Gratts said.Gratts, crippled by the stroke and virtually penniless, and Thomas, struggling with her addiction, soon found themselves sleeping on the streets of Washington – carless, jobless and homeless. “I went from being financially independent and self-sufficient to actually on the streets in a wheelchair,” Gratts said.  “I was going through a lot mentally, physically, and financially, but I was determined not to stay there.”“We were homeless, but I wasn’t going to leave her,” Thomas said. “She couldn’t walk or talk. In the beginning, I wasn’t getting paid a dime to take care of her, but I did it out of love.”They turned to The Salvation Army. “When you don’t have anything and you have to ask an organization for something, it’s a mental trip,” Gratts said. “But The Salvation Army paid my rent and bought me groceries. They never turned me away.”Thomas, now drug free, is a certified nurse and Gratts’ primary caregiver. Despite having a home and caregiver, Gratts suffered with the sense of being useless.  It made her depressed, she said.Two years ago, she and Thomas went to The Salvation Army’s Thanksgiving Dinner on Sherman Avenue. That is where they met Capt. Ray Jackson and his wife, Shalanda. Capt. Jackson asked if she could be a bell ringer.  Gratts and Thomas said they are happy to volunteer for The Salvation Army.“Seven years ago, the Salvation Army helped me when I was on drugs,” Thomas said as she wiped away tears. “They took me in and didn’t charge me a dime. Now I volunteer so I can give back. If you’ve been where I’ve been and God saved and took care of you, this ain’t nothing.  The Salvation Army is truly the salvation army. It saves people.”Gratts, confined to a wheelchair, said she gets joy every single day when she’s out ringing bells.  At 6 a.m., she said, she’s already up and waiting for Thomas to come get her out of bed. “It puts such an impression on my life,” Gratts said.  “As soon as it’s over, I’m looking forward to the next day and year. I pray to God that I am able to get up and still do this.  It’s just something about bell ringing. It’s not about money, because I have an income now. It’s the idea of giving back.”When Grant is not bell-ringing, she said she spends her days going to her doctors’ appointments, watching TV, and doing things to stay active. “During this time of the season, it seems as though I’m still ill, but I’m not as less functional as I feel before,” Gratts said. “Volunteering has changed my whole way of thinking. I have to tell myself that my health is going to get better. When I have my bad days or bad weeks I have to keep my faith in God and tell myself that this only temporary.”Bell-ringing is what keeps Gratts going and helps with her mental stability. “They [bells] saved this,” Gratts said, pointing to her head. “I’m happy now, and my mental health is transformed, which has made my body feel a lot better.”Gratts said she is grateful for the Salvation Army.  “I will always volunteer for the Salvation Army,” she said with a smile, “any season, but especially this season.  It’s just something about these little red kettles.”last_img read more

Videos | AAPM | July 23, 2019 VIDEO: Bridging Diversity in Medical Physics to Improve Patient Care Cynthia McColl… read more Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more In a rare demonstration of bipartisanship, the House Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously passed legislation, H.R. 2810, the Medicare Patient Access and Quality Improvement Act of 2013, to repeal and replace the antiquated Medicare Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR). Thanks to the efforts of the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) physician leadership and membership working in concert with the Federal Government Relations Department, H.R. 2810 included provisions specifically addressing the 25 percent professional component (PC) multiple procedure payment reduction (MPPR), as well as the expansion of web-based clinical decision support (CDS) tools. Passage of H.R. 2810 by the Energy and Commerce Committee is the first step in a larger legislative process to enact a bill that eliminates the SGR and includes these imaging provisions. With respect to the PC MPPR, language was included mandating that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finally disclose the specific data that was used in the Calendar Year 2012 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule when the 25 percent reimbursement cut was initially proposed. To date, CMS has never disclosed a line-by-line data analysis in justification of the PC MPPR and ACR has consistently disputed the existence of such data. While the provisions added to H.R. 2810 remain silent on the actual 25 percent PC MPPR, if enacted, inclusion of this language ensures that Congress is properly overseeing CMS with respect to this policy and will further the College’s efforts to ultimately repeal this imaging reimbursement cut. ACR will continue to pursue elimination of the PC MPPR during forthcoming SGR debates in other jurisdictional committees.“The ACR has expended a great deal of time and effort educating Congress and regulators regarding the need for greater transparency in CMS rulemaking actions and the drawbacks to the MPPR policy. The College has also worked tirelessly to inform decision makers about the need for, and benefits of, expanded use of appropriateness criteria based decision support systems. We are glad to see that Congress has incorporated this information into this proposed legislation. We look forward to working with Congress, CMS and other stakeholders on medical imaging and radiation oncology policies that improve quality of care while they protect access to care,” said Paul H. Ellenbogen, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.It is important to note that the Energy and Commerce Committee decided not to outline how Congress plans to cover the cost of repealing the SGR. Instead, the Energy and Commerce Committee elected to develop the key characteristics of the new physician reimbursement system while leaving the decisions over financial offsets to both the House Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees. The House of Representatives is expected to complete its work on the SGR sometime in the fall, likely as part of a larger deficit reduction package. The Senate is expected to turn its attention to SGR immediately after the August Congressional District Work Period.ACR greatly appreciates Representatives Pete Olson (R-TX) and Ralph Hall (R-TX) highlighting during their opening statements to the Energy and Commerce Committee the importance of including H.R. 846, the Diagnostic Imaging Services Access Protection Act, and H.R. 991, the CT Colonography Screening for Colorectal Cancer Act, within the final version of the Medicare Patient Access and Quality Improvement Act. ACR thanks the entire Energy and Commerce for addressing the SGR and MPPR, as well as furthering the discussion regarding clinical decision support.

A new video of a couple missing their cruise ship by mere seconds in The Bahamas has gone viral and it’s almost too heartbreaking to watch.The YouTube channel Reel Focus recently posted the six-minute video, which was shot by an onlooker from the top deck of the neighbouring Norwegian Bliss. According to Reel Focus, the Symphony of the Seas, which the down-on-their-luck couple was sailing with, waited approximately 20 minutes before shutting down the gangway.While dock workers are pulling the ropes off the boat, the tardy couple arrives and is seen attempting to wave down the ship as it sails away from the harbor. “Nooooo!” the woman can be heard yelling while onlookers laugh.The couple then walks towards the stern of the ship where they start pleading with a cruise line representative standing onboard. But all hope is lost when the ship’s thrusters are turned on, leaving the couple in the dust.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesTo add insult to injury, the ship’s horn happily blasts three times while the couple stands forlornly on the dock.With the ship long gone, the man can still be seen pacing along the dock, yelling at crew members onboard.

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation In Week 1, the Cardinals won a hard fought game against their division rivals, the Seattle Seahawks. “We are coming off a win last week that was big for us, we hung in there and found a way to win, Whisenhunt said. “Now the next challenge for us is to go on the road against a good team.”Whisenhunt hopes that his team is mentally tough and will be able to handle the task at hand. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton called the difficult matchup a “measuring stick game” for the Cardinals. However, safety Kerry Rhodes doesn’t believe that is the case. He already feels that his team is one of the best in the league. “This game just presents another challenge for us,” Rhodes said. “It’s just another chance for us and another opportunity for us to try to get better.” Rhodes said the Patriots are tough to stop because “they have playmakers at every position.” With an abundance of threats on offense, quarterback Tom Brady has a lot of options when he drops back to pass. Defensive End Calais Campbell thinks that the key to the defense’s success is getting pressure on and hitting Brady. “Tom Brady gets rid of the ball really fast, he is a great quarterback, Campbell said. “In order to beat him, that’s what you have to do.” The Arizona Cardinals know that beating the Patriots on the road is a tall task for any team, but they are primed and ready for the challenge. “When you’re going against an opponent that you don’t have a lot of information on from games this year and that you haven’t played in a while, there is always that uncertainty,” Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “But our guys have worked hard, they are prepared and that will hopefully allow us to play fast Sunday, and that’s what it’s going to take.” Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Last week, Brady was only sacked one time in a 34-13 blowout win against the Tennessee Titans.
