first_imgEl Gobernador Wolf firma dos proyectos de ley, veta el proyecto de ley de telemedicina defectuoso y publica una guía para la telesalud para todas las agencias Bill Signing,  Español,  Press Release El Gobernador Tom Wolf firmó hoy dos proyectos de ley: el proyecto de ley 1869 de la Cámara de Representantes permite que los miembros de la guardia nacional convocados a prestar servicio activo estén cubiertos por la Heart and Lung Act (Ley corazón y pulmones) si contraen COVID-19 mientras realizan sus deberes, y proyecto de ley 752 de la Cámara de Representantes establece que la Comisión de juego pague un valor justo de mercado por la tierra en el condado de Allegheny.El Gobernador Wolf también vetó el proyecto de ley 857 del Senado, un proyecto de ley de telemedicina que fue aprobado por el Senado por unanimidad el año pasado antes de ser enmendado para crear una versión inaceptable la semana pasada en la Cámara de Representantes.“Apoyé la versión anterior del proyecto de ley, pero tal como se modificó en la Cámara de Representantes, esta legislación restringe arbitrariamente el uso de la telemedicina para ciertas interacciones entre médicos y pacientes”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Según la enmienda, este proyecto de ley interfiere con la atención médica de las mujeres y con la toma de decisiones cruciales entre los pacientes y sus médicos”.El memorándum completo del veto se puede encontrar en PDF aquí o en Scribd.Además del veto del proyecto de ley de telemedicina, el Gobernador publicó una guía sobre telesalud para todas las agencias y mencionó la importancia que tiene como una opción de prestación de atención médica durante la pandemia de COVID-19 y que corresponde a su autoridad en virtud de la Declaración de Desastre firmada a principios de marzo.Dado el potencial de transmisión generalizada de la COVID-19 en todo Pennsylvania y para limitar su propagación, muchos proveedores médicos y pacientes están ampliando el uso de la telesalud en lugar de los servicios de atención médica en persona.Hoy, el Gobernador anunció una guía para todas las agencias sobre las medidas tomadas con el fin de garantizar que los pacientes que necesitan servicios vitales de atención médica los reciban de manera oportuna y adecuada. Múltiples agencias estatales participan de la prestación de los servicios ampliados de la telesalud, incluso los departamentos de Estado, Salud, Programas para el Tratamiento del Consumo de Drogas y Alcohol, Servicios Humanos y el Departamento de Seguros.La guía, disponible en PDF aquí o en Scribd incluye:Función ampliada de los proveedoresAmpliación del reembolso por servicios de telesaludProcedimientos de intervención temprana para bebés y niños pequeños mediante telesaludTelesalud para la salud conductualTelesalud para el tratamiento del trastorno por consumo de sustancias tóxicasVer esta página en inglés.

USS backs Macquarie purchase of UK Green Investment Bank

first_imgOne of these is L1 Renewables, which lends to the UK renewable energy sector. The spokesperson said that USS would expand the L1 Renewables platform as part of the GIB transaction. After this was completed, L1 Renewables and other USS subsidiaries would have combined commitments of more than £500m to UK renewable energy.In late 2014, L1 Renewables acquired a portfolio of around £320m worth of loans in the renewable energy sector.USS will also invest in a new low carbon lending platform alongside GCP Infrastructure, a UK-listed fund managed by Gravis Capital Partners.The GIB’s existing offshore wind farm fund had £1.12bn in assets under management as at January. Investors in the fund include UK local authority pension schemes such as Strathclyde Pension Fund, Swedish life insurance and pension company AMF, and a Middle Eastern sovereign wealth fund.The three new investment vehicles will mean GIB will manage or supervise more than £4bn of green infrastructure assets and projects, according to the statement.Special shares, designed to safeguard the bank’s environmental purpose, will be held by five independent trustees.Macquarie said the GIB will become its main platform for principal investments in green infrastructure projects in the UK and Europe.It said it was committed to the Green Investment Bank’s newly established target of £3bn of new investment in green energy projects over the next three years, either directly or by arranging capital from other investors.The UK government will invest alongside the GIB in a new green infrastructure investment platform, which the statement said would comprise a small number of the bank’s existing investments.Mike Powell, head of private markets at USS, said: “This transaction has enabled USS to acquire a portfolio of high quality renewable energy assets on behalf of our members. The assets include offshore wind projects and a portfolio of renewable loans, illustrating our capability to invest across the capital structure.”USS’s involvement in the GIB deal comes after it entered into a private debt partnership with Credit Suisse earlier this year. A Macquarie-led consortium that includes the UK’s biggest pension fund is to acquire the Green Investment Bank (GIB) from the UK government for £2.3bn (€2.7bn).The consortium comprises Macquarie Group Limited (Macquarie), Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 (MEIF5), and the £57bn Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). When the deal is completed, Macquarie will be the owner of the GIB, according to a statement from the asset manager and USS.USS will invest in two of three new GIB investment vehicles to be created in connection with the bank’s sale to Macquarie.A USS spokesperson said that the pension scheme had invested in a newly established investment management vehicle that will hold all of the GIB’s existing offshore wind investments. In addition, it has acquired a significant portion of the bank’s existing loan portfolio via a number of its wholly owned subsidiary entities.last_img read more

Gender-switch decision: Father loses battle over daughter’s ‘brainwashing’ (Aust)

first_imgDaily Telegraph October 2017Family First Comment: Very disturbing. “The father argued ‘Ryan’ (his daughter who wants to be male) was too young to decide to make “such permanent life-changing decision” and had not been given psychological help. Ryan was managed by two doctors: Dr P, who diagnosed gender dysphoria, and Dr T, who assessed whether the teenager was capable of understanding the irreversible effects of hormone treatment. The father¬ noted the two doctors were members of associations which “encourage gender diversity¬ and acceptance”.Activist doctors!A teenager has won the right to switch from female to male over the objection of her father, who claimed she was brainwashed by doctors. The Family Court ruled the 15-year-old, known as Ryan, was “sufficiently competent” to make the decision despite the father’s protests his child was too young and had been “indoctrinated” by doctors “to push their cause”.A judgment states Ryan’s mother, who is separated from the father, applied to the court in August for the teen to be allowed¬ to undergo hormone treatment, which involves the administration of testosterone to encourage male characteristics such as facial hair, deepened voice and increased muscle.At a hearing the father gave evidence referring to Ryan as his daughter and saying she first “expressed thoughts about being transgender” in late October¬ 2016 via text message. “Before this I had known nothing about this matter. Initially¬ I played along, thinking that this may have been some childish fantasy/phase she was going through, but the more I talked to her on the phone the more I realised it actually¬ was not, eventually telling her we need to talk in person,” he said. The judgment reads that when the father did speak to Ryan, the teenager refused to answer his questions about “why she wanted to change her name and who had influenced her to make this decision”. The argument led to the pair becoming estranged.The father argued Ryan was too young to decide to make “such permanent life-changing decision” and had not been given psychological help. Ryan was managed by two doctors: Dr P, who diagnosed gender dysphoria, and Dr T, who assessed whether the teenager was capable of understanding the irreversible effects of hormone treatment. The father¬ noted the two doctors were members of associations which “encourage gender diversity¬ and acceptance”.“Hence I believe rather than treating my daughter’s psychological problems, I believe she has … been brainwashed by these individuals that going transgender will solve all her problems,” the father¬ argued.Justice Stewart Austin wrote in his judgment that he understood the “father’s alarm at such a fundamental change as reversal of his child’s gender”. However, the court had to decide if the child could decide for himself. read more

Anna Rozwandowicz, Kalie Moore and Nicola Piggott launch The Story Mob

first_imgAnna Rozwandowicz, Kalie Moore and Nicola Piggott have today announced the launch of The Story Mob, a dedicated esports communications consultancy.The three co-founders have a plethora of top level esports experience. Anna Rozwandowicz comes from a role as the VP of Communications at ESL where she led a worldwide team – as well as being an adviser for the Cybersmile Foundation and part of the setup of the Esports Integrity Coalition (“ESIC”). Nicola Piggott has spent over five years at Riot Games where she led global communication for Riot’s esports team. She was also named one of PR Week’s top Women in PR in 2015. Finally, Kalie Moore was Head of Communications for BITKRAFT Esports Ventures where she oversaw communications strategy, media relations and crisis communications amongst much much more. The new consultancy already boasts impressive clients such as Team Liquid, Fnatic, Red Bull, DOJO Madness, Split Media Labs and BITKRAFT Esports Ventures. The lead investor in Story Mob is BITKRAFT Esports Ventures, and notably The Story Mob becomes the first investment from BITKRAFT in a female founding team. Last year, only 2.2% of VC funding went to female founding teams and the diversity issue is something that the aforementioned trio keep very close to their hearts. The group has already teased plans for pro-bono work in areas that encourage diversity in the competitive gaming landscape. Esports Insider had a chance to have catch-up with The Story Mob ahead of their official launch today. ESI: What’s the origin story of The Story Mob?Anna: As heads of communications at ESL and Riot Games, Nicola Piggott and I had worked together on various projects including IEM over several years. Communications pros within esports were rare and we often compared notes on some of the challenges and learnings we had experienced. We both believed that successful communications could speed up and contribute to the growth of the esports industry – and when we considered partnering we found we had several of the same goals and values when it came to the types of projects and partners we felt we could add value to.Our partnership with Kalie Moore, who we were familiar with through her work on BITKRAFT Esports Ventures, the world’s first VC fund solely dedicated to esports, felt similarly smooth. Kalie’s expertise in investor relations and inside knowledge of esports investment strategies provided a missing piece that rounded out our offer and expertise.ESI: What kind of clients are you planning to work with?Nicola: We’re working with several leading esports competitive teams, including Team Liquid and Fnatic. We’ve worked alongside – and cheered for – these teams and pros for years as part of our work at ESL and Riot Games and helping teams create strong and compelling stories remains our core passion.We’ll also be working alongside strong consumer brands, such as Red Bull, that believe in the potential of the esports market and are using their brand power to improve the sport for fans worldwide.Our experience as communications leaders for both a developer/publisher and tournament organizer also means that we’re ready to share our experience over years of live esports leagues and competitions.Kalie: In addition to our work with teams and brands, because of our strong VC background, we’re uniquely set up to work with private equity and venture capital funds involved in esports and esports startups who want attention in mainstream media. We also offer an investor relations component, where we support startups with communicating their strategies and wins to their investors. We’re proud to be working alongside one of our investors, BITKRAFT Esports Ventures, as they continue to invest in the future of esports companies.ESI: What do you think teams and tournament organizers can be doing better to address communication issues?Anna: Esports teams have taken huge steps forward in the past few years to improve communications, provide value and content for their fans and increase brand loyalty. With that said, we believe that there’s still a ton of room to improve to bring esports in line with other more established sports industries.Teams need to be able to fully articulate their brand story and what makes them unique to fans, potential athletes and investors. We work with clients to help them isolate their vision and values, then make sure their communications strategies live up to them. From working smartly with the media to reacting quickly and with transparency in a crisis, everything comes back to those values.  Nicola: For tournament organizers, the major challenge is to share enough of the inner workings so that fans can understand the bigger picture and trust that every tournament is run with their interests in mind. Communication challenges happen when our words don’t match our actions, so part of our job as communication pros is to be the voice of the fan and to raise our hand where we see a dissonance between the values we claim and the ones we put into action.last_img read more

Arsenal’s winning streak surprises even Arsene Wenger

first_imgArsenal’s eight-match winning streak in the Premier League has taken even manager Arsene Wenger by surprise, according to the Frenchman whose side retain an outside chance of winning the title.”I always hope to get the best out of my team, but no manager in the world if he is serious can predict a run like this,” Wenger told Arsenal’s website.”In the Premier League it’s very difficult to predict.” Wenger has once again come under fire this season, with fans frustrated by Arsenal’s failure to mount a serious title challenge and another last-16 exit in the Champions League.However, with an FA Cup semi-final this weekend and still the chance to chase down Chelsea in the table, Wenger’s position at Arsenal is again looking secure. Arsenal have won 16 of 18 games in all competitions and Wenger believes the change in fortune is down to him finally having a relatively injury-free squad.”It’s down to the quality and the attitude of the team, the quality of the spirit we have in the side,” he said.”We prepare (well), we prepare and contribute to our success, that is for sure. What people forgot is that we had big players out for four months this season. “Six or seven players from the squad completely out. So that made a big difference.”We have a better balance in the team and some players have made it like (Francis) Coquelin, who contributes to the balance of the team. Hector Bellerin as well has come into the team.”And big players like (Laurent) Koscielny, like (Mesut) Ozil, like (Olivier) Giroud have been out four months in the season — four months the three together!”I have a quality bench and we even have quality players at home like Chamberlain, Arteta, Wilshere. I didn’t even try to play Debuchy. We have a big squad and I think we have quality.”Let’s see how we finish the season and after see how we do next season.” Arsenal face Championship side Reading in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend and host Chelsea the following week. –last_img read more
