Enfamil Infant Formula Price Spikes: Frustrated Consumers Cry, ‘Robbery!’ As Shortages Persist
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Topline Months after baby formula shortages rattled parents, consumers are still taking a hit, reporting rapid price increases for U.S.-manufactured bestseller Enfamil at major retailers, as well as lingering shortages. Key Facts Parents are complaining in the comment sections of Enfamil’s official social media accounts, alleging that prices have increased seemingly overnight at retailers like Walmart and Target, with one Twitter user calling Enfamil formula prices “highway robbery.” Reckitt, the U.K.-based parent company of Enfamil manufacturer Mead Johnson, confirmed that Enfamil raised prices in February in an email to Forbes , stating it previously canceled price increases to aid consumers amid the 2022 infant formula shortage, but suffered as the cost of formula ingredients rose by more than 60% on average last year. Enfamil has acknowledged price increases in tweets to several outraged Twitter … [Read more...] about Enfamil Infant Formula Price Spikes: Frustrated Consumers Cry, ‘Robbery!’ As Shortages Persist
Number of newborns in Korea hits record low for January
A father meets his twin babies through a video call. [YONHAP] The number of newborn babies has hit another rock bottom. The dire demographic news comes just a few days ahead of a presidential committee meeting to draw up plans for combating the falling birth rate. There were 23,179 new babies born in January, a 6 percent decrease on year, according to a report released by Statistics Korea on Wednesday. This was the fewest babies born in the month of January since the agency began data compilation in 1981, and half of the 46,747 babies born in January 2008. The on-year decrease in the number of newborn babies has been going on for 86 months. Crude birth rate, or the number of babies born per 1,000 people, dropped to 5.3 from 5.7 in January last year. “Fewer babies were born because there were fewer marriages during the first half last year,” said Lim Young-il, director of the population census division at Statistics Korea, adding that the number of new babies and marriages … [Read more...] about Number of newborns in Korea hits record low for January
Q&A: Does Secure 2.0 Go Far Enough To Really Expand Retirement Savings?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The Saving Problem Secure 2.0 Aimed to Solve Secure 2.0 is a pension reform package passed at the end of last year with provisions to lower taxes on retirement savings for high earners and to expand coverage and retirement savings. At least, that was a hope. My colleague and I, Siavash Radpour, Research Director at the Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis at The New School, unpacked the provisions to investigate how well Secure 2.0 will do to help those without an employer plan or significant levels of retirement savings. The sorry truth is that most, over 63 million workers , have no retirement plan that will supplement their Social Security. And the average holdings for the worker with a retirement account is about $100,000. What is the Savers Credit/Match in Secure 2.0 and how does it affect American workers’ retirement security? Before SECURE 2.0, the Savers’ Credit credited a low earners’ tax bill … [Read more...] about Q&A: Does Secure 2.0 Go Far Enough To Really Expand Retirement Savings?
What Is The Mandalorian’s Grogu Endgame?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Look, I love Grogu. You love Grogu. We all love Grogu. But the longer The Mandalorian goes on , a show that Jon Favreau has said does not really have an end in sight, I do have to wonder where they’re taking the former Baby Yoda, given the events of the past two seasons. For a while, the main “questline” of The Mandalorian made sense. Protect Grogu and get him to the Jedi where they could develop his Force powers. That culminated in the (in)famous season 2 finale in which a digital post-ROTJ Luke Skywalker showed up to personally train Grogu at his newly formed Jedi Academy. But the show quickly understood that Grogu couldn’t be written out, as if that was ever the plan in the first place, so that idea was killed off in of all places, The Book of Boba Fett, where its standalone Mando episodes had Grogu actively rejecting Jedi training after learning how to do some backflips, and choosing instead to return to The … [Read more...] about What Is The Mandalorian’s Grogu Endgame?

How Exactly Will ChatGPT Change Work?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin A year ago most of us had never heard of ChatGPT. And for good reason: The artificial intelligence “chatbox” wasn’t introduced by OpenAI , its developer, until November 30, 2022. Now, less than six months later a Google search of ChatGPT produces hundreds of millions of results, making it the most talked about new technology since the previous most-talked-about new technology. The big question is: How will it change our lives and the way we work? And the simple answer is: Nobody really knows. Perhaps ChatGPT and its competitors will revolutionize the way we live and work as much as, or more than Alphabet Inc. (Google), Amazon, Apple or Microsoft. Or perhaps it will be muscled aside by something newer (and presumably better), which is what happened to Kaypro, one of the top-selling personal computers in the 1980s, and CompuServe, the dominant online service provider at that same time. Ask me 20 years from now and … [Read more...] about How Exactly Will ChatGPT Change Work?

T he composer Ludwig van Beethoven first began to experience hearing loss in his mid-20s. He also suffered from chronic stomach pain and, towards the end of his life, displayed jaundice – the yellow skin associated with liver disease. His health problems have been the subject of much speculation and a team of international scientists have finally gotten some answers: thanks to developments in whole genome sequencing and five strands of his hair. The research, published in Current Biology today, was unable to find a genetic explanation for the hearing loss but did find he had a Hepatitis B infection in the months leading up to his death, as well as genetic risk factors for liver disease that “likely contributed to his death.” It took more than a billion dollars and 20 years to sequence the first human genome. … [Read more...] about InnovationRx: Beethoven’s Genome; Plus, Billionaires Back New Kind Of Health Research
