Representational image On September 22, Rajasthan became the first state to move a Right to Health Bill, promising health for all its residents, in the state assembly. The Bill was later sent to a select committee, which has been asked to submit its report in a week before it is tabled in the assembly again. The Bill, if passed and implemented in its true spirit as hoped, has the potential to ensure universal healthcare and may pave the way forward for other states to bring about similar laws. At least three states — Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Assam — have prepared similar Bills but none has reached the respective assemblies yet. The Rajasthan Bill aims to provide free and accessible healthcare to residents with a progressive reduction in out-of-pocket expenditure on healthcare. Yet, most attached with health administration and movements feel that in its current form, the Bill may be quite weak, as a lot has been left for rules to be framed later.

A person uses a laptop. [SHUTTERSTOCK] Big-name YouTube channels — including those run by the Korean government, broadcasting companies and a popular hip-hop label — have fallen victim to hackers' attack due primarily to loose security. The YouTube channel of the Korean government was hacked around 3 a.m. on Sept. 3, according to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. The name of the channel switched to SpaceX Invest, broadcasting a cryptocurrency-related video by Elon Musk. On Sept. 1 and 2, YouTube channels of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art and the Korea Tourism Organization were hacked in a similar way. Other big YouTube channels, including those of hip-hop label AOMG, were hacked earlier this year. In July, seven channels under the local broadcaster SBS and magazines, such as Vogue Korea, were attacked. Individual YouTubers are no exception. A popular camping YouTube channel with 560,000 subscribers has been attacked, where a video on … [Read more...] about YouTube sites in Korea being hacked by crypto promoters
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin It’s mid-morning in the medieval town of Sarzana , slowly waking to what will be another hot summer day. I’ve traveled here from Lerici to get to know the southern Riviera countryside better, an area getting more attention from visitors enamored of the nearby coast. (I’ve also heard there’s a great pastry shop to visit, and, as someone who is no stranger to Italian sweets, need to check it out.) A few sight-seers are are out and about and you wonder if it’s too early in the day to gauge the tourist scene, but several minutes later a line of enthusiastic tourists from a just-docked cruise ship in La Spezia (about 10 miles away) suddenly appears, turning a corner. They march off happily, heading to a nearby church, and the streets quickly return to their residents-only calm. One place that’s hopping, though, is Pasticceria Gemmi in Sarzana’s historic center, as much a landmark to visit, for culinary travelers at least, as … [Read more...] about The Under-The-Radar Italian Dessert You Need To Try
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin WORCESTER, MA - JULY 5: A waitress cleans a table at Armsby Abbey, a restaurant in Worcester, Mass., ... [+] July 5, 2016. (Photo by Keith Bedford/The Boston Globe via Getty Images) Does the option to leave a gratuity for a waiter or waitress encourage customers to sexually harass these employees? That's the message currently being promoted by the Restaurant Opportunities Center (ROC) , and echoed in dozens of recent news articles. It's a popular talking point. But it's not worth the paper it's written on. ROC is a controversial labor advocacy organization with its own history of alleged bad behavior; it was even sued by its own employees for illegal firings. But ROC's profile has been rising in recent years, with celebrities such as Jane Fonda and Amy Poehler embracing its cause ( if not the restaurant servers that ROC claims to represent ). ROC bases its argument on tipping and sexual … [Read more...] about Sexual Harassment Is Awful. But It Has Nothing To Do With Tipping.
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin At the close of 2017, Donald Trump signed into law the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act , a landmark reform of federal tax code that has already begun to have sweeping effects on the U.S. economy and financial markets. From mid-October to mid-January, during which the legislation was deliberated, passed, and came into effect, the S&P 500 gained 9 %, and real GDP increased dramatically from 2.4 % to 3.1 %, according to the St. Louis Fed’s Real GDP Growth Rate Nowcast Q4 vs. Q2 (it’s adjusted to account for both seasonality and inflation). Among its far-reaching effects on the economy, the tax overhaul is likely to have significant effects on the economics of higher education, and particularly on the budgets of all types of colleges. In this article, I’ll examine how in many cases the Act is likely to generally benefit many campuses’ finances, likely offsetting other new costs it imposes directly or indirectly on colleges. … [Read more...] about The GOP Tax Bill Will Benefit Colleges — Even Those With Endowments It Now Taxes

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin In 1998, Carlos Queiroz wrote a detailed study of American soccer to serve as a blueprint for the future, Project 2010 , the Q-Report. As with most masterplans, it came with great promises and grandiose language: “Throughout history, Americans have many times demonstrated a remarkable ability to accomplish extraordinary goals”. By 2010, the US would be in a position to win the World Cup, a mission Queiroz and his co-author Dan Gaspar compared to “the equivalent of another Apollo XI lunar landing.” Queiroz got that right; in 2010, the USA scrapped through the group stage in the most dramatic of fashion before getting knocked out by Ghana. “Progress in football is all over the place,” said Queiroz at a press briefing on the eve of the friendly international Iran - Uruguay. “That is modern football. With video technology, you can feel and touch the progress of humans very easily because it is clear. In the game, the majority … [Read more...] about Iran’s World Cup Preparation: A Political Ball Game
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin By Sean Adler , CEO of GZI. He is a mentor at Founder Institute and an expert at leading networks like GLG, Guidepoint, and AlphaSights. Corporate innovation can ignite growth for your startup. One large company can play the role of many smaller private counterparts like private equity firms, venture capital firms and startups if you find the right corporate partners. It’s important to be mindful of the structure, scale, timeline and role of each respective corporation if the goal is mutual benefit. Here are the ins and outs of navigating through vertical and horizontal relationships with the black and white knights of the corporate world. Management Structure The management structure is far different from startups. Instead of dealing with a few key people who can move through the system quickly, you will probably be channeled through multiple departments. The larger the company, the more infrastructure … [Read more...] about 4 Things To Know Before Partnering With A Large Corporation
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Michael White, Founder of MashTank | Discretionary time is life. In the ecosystem of your company, the most important life cycle taking place is that of your people: attracting the right talent, onboarding and optimizing them and then offboarding with the knowledge of why they left and what you can learn from it. And in theory, most leaders understand this life cycle. People will come and go, as is the nature of life, and we as leaders can perform exit interviews to learn along the way. But from my experience of working with executives and teams over the last 25 years, here’s what I actually see happen most of the time: 1. In the first phase, you attract some people. Depending on your culture and unique value propositions as an employer, you may or may not be attracting the perfect people from the get-go. 2. In the next phase, you onboard those people. 3. Eventually, over time, people leave and you … [Read more...] about How To Master The Offboarding Process In Order To Master Retention
