Warren Battles With GOP Over Consumer Protection Director. Senator Elizabeth Warren D-MA and some of her Democratic colleagues are pushing Senate Republicans to stop filibustering and take an up-or-down vote on the confirmation of Richard Cordray as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau CFPB, and Warren is turning to the grassroots network that led her to victory in 2012 for back up. In an email to supporters over the weekend, Warren, who was a driving force behind the creation of the CFPB in 2010, asked that they sign a petition demanding an up-or-down vote from the GOP, which is blocking Cordray's re-nomination to the top post at the consumer watchdog agency.

Home About Comment Policy Books Contact Publicity Guidelines Category: Consumer Protection Law 15 Oct, 2012 · by Frank Pasquale Better, Simpler Disclosure Here is an  apt response  to the question: “What would an ideal food label look like?:” Even the simplest information — a red, yellow or green “traffic light,” for example — would encourage consumers to make healthier choices. That might help counter  obesity , a problem all but the most cynical agree is closely related to the consumption of junk food. Of course, labeling changes like this would bring cries of hysteria from the food producers who argue that all foods are fine, although some should be eaten in moderation.

*  Nestlé boycott
The boycott has been canceled and renewed based upon scrutiny of the business practices of Nestlé and other substitute manufacturers monitored by the International Baby Food Action Network IBFAN. As of 2013, the Nestlé boycott is coordinated by the 'International Nestlé Boycott Committee', the secretariat for which is the UK group 'Baby Milk Action'. Groups such as the International Baby Food Action Network IBFAN and Save the Children argue that the promotion of infant formula over breastfeeding has led to health problems and deaths among infants in less economically developed countries. There are four problems that can arise when poor mothers in developing countries switch to formula:. Formula must normally be mixed with water, which is often polluted in poor countries, leading to disease in vulnerable infants. Advocacy groups and charities have accused Nestlé of unethical methods of promoting infant formula over breast milk to poor mothers in developing countries. In 1979, WHO and UNICEF hosted an internati...

... Basic Principles of media Advocacy. "The news has the power to set public agendas, direct attention to particular issues, and, ultimately, influence how we think about those issues... In short, is an important link between citizens and their government." says media scholar Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr. The work of Stanford Professor Shanto Iyengar suggests a simple equation: the media sets the public agenda, which, in turn, sets the policy agenda. In short, by structuring public discourse, the media determine our social priorities. For tobacco control advocates, this finding is critical. You cannot solve a problem that is not perceived to exist by the public. That tobacco use causes disease and death must be heralded by the media, as often as possible, and in as dramatic a story as possible." But it is not merely the volume of news that determines an issue s ascension onto the policy agenda, but also the composition of that news. The way that a problem is presented, its news composition, determines how the pu...

Consumer Protection Agency. A lot of the headache we are suffering through now could have been avoided if Alan Greenspan enforced consumer protection laws in the subprime market, notably the 1994 The Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act. Having consumer protection as a third or fourth priority across many agencies doesn’t cut it: We need an agency with this as its first priority. And that data and research can give us a better picture of who the financial sector work well for and who it doesn’t work for at all. That’s the way the listed options market works and the way the listed futures market works, and it’s how the credit derivatives market should work as well.

Let Wall Street regulate itself. By: Rick Claypool. Last week, a bipartisan group of senators were hastily pushing a bill that could significantly weaken efforts to keep Wall Street’s greed from causing another financial crash. Dubbed the Independent Agency Regulatory Analysis Act S. 3468, the bill would create new ways for Wall Street cronies to obstruct independent agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and require those agencies to add onerous layers of analysis before taking action against corporate recklessness. In a New York Times article about the bill, Public Citizen’s expert on regulatory policy said, “Those who support preserving the status quo where Wall Street regulates itself will find much to like in this legislation.”. A better name for the bill would be the Independent Agency Regulatory PARALYSIS Act PDF., Susan Collins R-Maine and Mark Warner D-Va. — presumed the technical nature of the bill’s approach to deregulation would allow it to slip unnoticed through the le...

House Bill 2366 would overhaul Pennsylvania's weights and measures system. The Watchdog The state may overhaul the system that protects us from getting ripped off at the gas station, grocery store and even the parking meter. Some lawmakers want to do less-frequent inspections to make sure fuel pumps, home heating oil trucks and parking meters are dispensing the correct amount of gas, oil and parking time, and that store checkout scanners are ringing up the correct price. But the pending legislation also could protect us by doing away with the state's controversial plan to allow private or even self-inspections of gas stations and heating oil trucks. Mackenzie's bill would require inspections every five years and transfer that responsibility to the local government or authority that controls the meters. Most inspections now are done by the state Division of Weights and Measures, part of the Department of Agriculture. When it got to the Senate, the Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee amended the bill...

*  How Public Health Advocates Are Trying To Reach Nonvaccinators | WVXU
VIEW SLIDESHOW 2 of 2 The Green family clockwise from top left : Colby, Harrison, Sonia, Davis, Langford and Holden. Matt Willis, a public health officer for Marin County, says if pediatricians know why parents aren't vaccinating, they can come up with responses to try to change parents' minds. What they found was that the more skeptical parents are about vaccines, the less likely they are to listen to public service ads or to their pediatricians. "There were very few families that left our practice." Fewer than 20 families left, and about 150 families chose to vaccinate. A Mom's Plea Mother Sonia Green has also taken up the cause of convincing parents to vaccinate. Ten-year-old Holden and his two brothers are basically "walking around with half their immune system missing," Green says. If enough people in a community are vaccinated, then even those who didn't get vaccines are likely to be protected. If other children aren't vaccinated, kids like the Green brothers are at greater risk. Part of what keeps Hold...

Claire Pomeroy, M.D., M.B.A. Vice Chancellor, Human Health Sciences Dean, School of Medicine. M y career in medicine began just as the HIV epidemic was unfolding. Unfortunately, a growing complacency also emerged. While the death rate from AIDS has fallen in the U.S., many in our local and global community still suffer greatly from this disease. I remember that, as a young infectious-disease doctor, I helped to care for a young man dying of AIDS. Fortunately, the lessons we've learned in taming HIV can be applied to other diseases, such as hepatitis C, or MRSA methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus , or possibly a new virus or other pathogen yet to be discovered. At UC Davis, we are applying lessons learned from AIDS. For instance, our infectious-disease experts are working with our hepatologists, using their knowledge of the HIV epidemic, to address the growing incidence of hepatitis C. ...

Homosexual Activist Group Brings Gender Confusion Into Elementary Schools. On the heels of the release of the so-called national sexuality standards for schools, one of the homosexual advocacy groups involved in that effort followed up with materials specifically targeting elementary schools. Problem is, the toolkit doesn’t seem to advocate much “respect” for parents who don’t want schools promoting things like same-sex marriage and cross-dressing to children against their will. Here is a sampling of some of the things the GLSEN toolkit encourages teachers to do:. For instance, “Write math problems with contexts that include a variety of family structures and gender-expressions. If your child’s school starts teaching programs about “different family structures,” “family diversity” or “gender expressions,” that’s definitely a red flag that you should start asking questions about what’s happening in the classroom. Other things the toolkit encourages teachers to do include:. However, ...

*  Lift-off oversteer
... 'Lift-off oversteer' also known as 'snap-oversteer', 'trailing-throttle oversteer', 'throttle off oversteer', or 'lift-throttle oversteer' is a form of oversteer in automobile s that occurs while cornering when closing the throttle causes a deceleration, causing the vertical load on the tires to shift from the rear to the front, in a process called weight transfer. This decrease in vertical load on the rear tires causes a decrease in the lateral force they generate, so that their lateral acceleration into the corner is also decreased. Causes and countermeasures Dynamics In popular culture See also References. This type of oversteer is often more pronounced in rear-engined cars and cars with swing axle rear suspension. Various suspension enhancements, such as a Weissach axle, Passive rear wheel steering, or a multi-link suspension, can limit a vehicle's tendency to oversteer in this situation. The steady state cornering is at constant speed, with a lateral acceleration of 0.45 g approximately until the th...

(1/154) Tobacco control advocates must demand high-quality media campaigns: the California experience.

OBJECTIVE: To document efforts on the part of public officials in California to soften the media campaign's attack on the tobacco industry and to analyse strategies to counter those efforts on the part of tobacco control advocates. METHODS: Data were gathered from interviews with programme participants, direct observation, written materials, and media stories. In addition, internal documents were released by the state's Department of Health Services in response to requests made under the California Public Records Act by Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights. Finally, a draft of the paper was circulated to 11 key players for their comments. RESULTS: In 1988 california voters enacted Proposition 99, an initiative that raised the tobacco tax by $0.25 and allocated 20% of the revenues to anti-tobacco education. A media campaign, which was part of the education programme, directly attacked the tobacco industry, exposing the media campaign to politically based efforts to shut it down or soften it. Through use of outsider strategies such as advertising, press conferences, and public meetings, programme advocates were able to counter the efforts to soften the campaign. CONCLUSION: Anti-tobacco media campaigns that expose industry manipulation are a key component of an effective tobacco control programme. The effectiveness of these campaigns, however, makes them a target for elimination by the tobacco industry. The experience from California demonstrates the need for continuing, aggressive intervention by nongovernmental organisations in order to maintain the quality of anti-tobacco media campaigns.  (+info)

(2/154) Regulating the private health care sector: the case of the Indian Consumer Protection Act.

Private medical provision is an important constituent of health care delivery services in India. The quality of care provided by this sector is a critical issue. Professional organizations such as the Medical Council of India and local medical associations have remained ineffective in influencing the behaviour of private providers. The recent decision to bring private medical practice under the Consumer Protection Act (COPRA) 1986 is considered an important step towards regulating the private medical sector. This study surveyed the views of private providers on this legislation. They believe the COPRA will be effective in minimizing malpractice and negligent behaviour, but it does have adverse consequences such as an increase in fees charged by doctors, an increase in the prescription of medicines and diagnostics, an adverse impact on emergency care, etc. The medical associations have also argued that the introduction of COPRA is a step towards expensive, daunting and needless litigation. A number of other concerns have been raised by consumer forums which focus on the lack of standards for private practice, the uncertainty and risks of medicines, the effectiveness of the judiciary system, and the responsibility of proving negligence. How relevant are these concerns? Is the enactment of COPRA really appropriate to the medical sector? The paper argues that while this development is a welcome step, we need to comprehensively look into the various quality concerns. The effective implementation of COPRA presumes certain conditions, the most important being the availability of standards. Besides this, greater involvement of professional organizations is needed to ensure appropriate quality in private practice, since health and medical cases are very different from other goods and services. The paper discusses the results of a mailed survey and interview responses of 130 providers from the city of Ahmedabad, India. The questionnaire study was designed to assess the opinion of providers on various implications of the COPRA. We also analyze the data on cases filed with the Consumer Disputes and Redressal Commission in Gujarat since 1991. Four selected cases filed with the National Commission on Consumers Redressal are discussed in detail to illustrate various issues affecting the implementation of this Act.  (+info)

(3/154) Nonprofit to for-profit conversions by hospitals, health insurers, and health plans.

Conversion of hospitals, health insurers, and health plans from nonprofit to for-profit ownership has become a focus of national debate. The author examines why nonprofit ownership has been dominant in the US health system and assesses the strength of the argument that nonprofits provide community benefits that would be threatened by for-profit conversion. The author concludes that many of the specific community benefits offered by nonprofits, such as care for the poor, could be maintained or replaced by adequate funding of public programs and that quality and fairness in treatment can be better assured through clear standards of care and adequate monitoring systems. As health care becomes increasingly commercialized, the most difficult parts of nonprofits' historic mission to preserve are the community orientation, leadership role, and innovation that nonprofit hospitals and health plans have provided out of their commitment to a community beyond those to whom they sell services.  (+info)

(4/154) Public advocacy and allocation of federal funds for biomedical research.

Members of Congress and officials of the National Institutes of Health face heightened pressure from public advocacy groups seeking more funding for research on specific health conditions. In response, Congress and the Institute of Medicine have urged the NIH to create more opportunities for the public to participate in decision making on allocation of biomedical research resources. The ethical and policy implications of including advocates in the deliberations are explored, leading to the conclusion that public participation could contribute to more defensible decisions under three conditions: public participants are fairly selected and meaningful opinions are solicited; public participants look beyond their narrow constituencies to consider the health needs of the broader public; and NIH officials develop materials to assist participants with their deliberations.  (+info)

(5/154) Reporting comparative results from hospital patient surveys.

Externally-reported assessments of hospital quality are in increasing demand, as consumers, purchasers, providers, and public policy makers express growing interest in public disclosure of performance information. This article presents an analysis of a groundbreaking program in Massachusetts to measure and disseminate comparative quality information about patients' hospital experiences. The article emphasizes the reporting structure that was developed to address the project's dual goals of improving the quality of care delivered statewide while also advancing public accountability. Numerous trade-offs were encountered in developing reports that would satisfy a range of purchaser and provider constituencies. The final result was a reporting framework that emphasized preserving detail to ensure visibility for each participating hospital's strengths as well as its priority improvement areas. By avoiding oversimplification of the results, the measurement project helped to support a broad range of successful improvement activity statewide.  (+info)

(6/154) Public disclosure of health care performance reports: comments and reflections from Sweden.

In all countries quality improvement is a very important issue. At the same time the demands for information from consumers are increasing. By combining these two principles we can gain a great deal. In my opinion we will go both ways. Bad results, if publicly disclosed, are probably the strongest incentive to improve if they are reliable. Confidential performance feedback for self improvement is the way Sweden is heading at the moment. In the near future, I am sure, we will publish performance reports accompanied by analytic comments regarding quality indicators that are well defined and easy for consumers to evaluate. A pre-condition is that the medical profession must have time to get accustomed. Only experience will show how to devise the most effective means to improve quality and confidence in health care. We will follow the progress in the USA with great interest.  (+info)

(7/154) Public disclosure of health care performance reports: a response from the UK.

In the UK, the experience with public disclosure of health care performance data related to provider organizations is limited to a small set of administrative data known as the 'Patient's Charter' which has concentrated mainly on aspects of efficiency and which is currently being reviewed, and, most recently, to a set of reference costs by case type (known as Healthcare Resource Groups). Clinically oriented performance data has been published in Scotland since 1994 and will be published in England and Wales early in 1999. Knowledge about the impact and effect of such publication is limited, even in the USA, but there is some evidence that consumers and purchasers become gradually familiar with them and confident in their use. However, even with this scant knowledge, it would appear that the publication of data across the public services will continue to be a policy of the current UK Government for the foreseeable future. It would seem likely that this policy will have the tacit approval of the general population who have been educated to be somewhat wary of professional self-regulation. The greater public accountability that public disclosure of information brings, needs to be evaluated against the overall costs of the exercise, particularly within a publicly financed system, and against the disadvantages in public confidence and impact on the patient-doctor relationship that might occur if not managed appropriately.  (+info)

(8/154) Lobbying and advocacy for the public's health: what are the limits for nonprofit organizations?

Nonprofit organizations play an important role in advocating for the public's health in the United States. This article describes the rules under US law for lobbying by nonprofit organizations. The 2 most common kinds of non-profits working to improve the public's health are "public charities" and "social welfare organizations." Although social welfare organizations may engage in relatively unlimited lobbying, public charities may not engage in "substantial" lobbying. Lobbying is divided into 2 main categories. Direct lobbying refers to communications with law-makers that take a position on specific legislation, and grassroots lobbying includes attempts to persuade members of the general public to take action regarding legislation. Even public charities may engage in some direct lobbying and a smaller amount of grassroots lobbying. Much public health advocacy, however, is not lobbying, since there are several important exceptions to the lobbying rules. These exceptions include "non-partisan analysis, study, or research" and discussions of broad social problems. Lobbying with federal or earmarked foundation funds is generally prohibited.  (+info)

hi there should be an information leaflet given to the person or carer which should have a complaints procedure on it - i think complaints are usually made to the advocacy service involved or through a social worker or doctor - if you don't have any of these details you could contact your citizens advice office.

How do i start a children/families advocacy group?


I want to start an advocacy group for children and their families who are involved with childrens protective services. Many children sit in fostercare who dont need to be there,because there are family members who want them. Yet the CPS caseworkers will ignore or disregard those family members attempts at gaining custody of those children. I want to help change that!

Unless he put in writing that he would be able to close that gap within X period of time - you have no proof.  Therefore no case.


How does the American consumer view genetically modified food?


I read in a British newspaper the other day that 7 years ago 60% of all products in UK supermarkets contained GM ingredients. Nowadays there are only two products on sale in the UK containg GM food. Despite the fact that there isn't all that much evidence to say GM is bad, the British consumers decided they didn't want GM and stopped buying them, and the supermarkets got rid of them as quick as they could. Now that's what I call consumer power.

I get the impression that American consumers are far less skeptical of genetic modification and that GM products are widely available. How aware are American consumers of what's in their food? Do they care about GM or is it not an issue for them? How has the media covered the issue in america?
----------

Personally (remember folks this is just my opinion), I think the bulk of American culture could careless, and who would really, when there is always some kind of terrorist attack or threat being fed to us by the media. The media is very good at the old trick of making us look where they want us to. GM food is a much cheaper way for the producers of such goods to get rich,...and as the producers of such goods gets rich, the government takes it's cut, so why would they make it well known.

In this technological day of hands free convo, and cell phone web browsers it's very hard for most to stay connected with what's really important. They have us scrutinizing arabs for terrorist behavior so closely we can't even see our children stealing Grandma's OxyCodone! 

I don't mean to be cynical,...but it's the general moral decay of a fabric or society when presented with false truths to occupy the mind, you watch the magicians left hand when he's taking your wallet with his right, classic misdirection. 

Very few (but we are out there), people actually look deeper to find the hidden dialogue, and I applaude you for bringing it to the forefront. 

I mean, there are already obvious changes,... look at the breasts on our 13 y/o girls (and I do not mean this in a perverted sort of way), I am saying that through our own scientific splicing of genetic modification with our foods, we've actually stimulated production of puberty hormones earlier and more aggressive in our children. It doesn't stop there, look at the average height of males even 40 years ago until now,... 

I do believe it is a serious issue,... and like I said thankyou for the reminder, we all need a prod in the jeans from time to time. You seem a genuine intelligent sort, and I wouldn't mind correspondance from you if you have the time, feel free to email me, it's hard to find people unpersuaded or nudged strongly by the strong forces of faith and government.

Hope this is what you were looking for,...

How and why is institutional Kraft Roka Bleu Cheese Dressing different than the consumer product?


My mom has wondered for *years*:

There are apparently two different recipes. Apparently, the 1 gallon institutional / foodservice product is sweet, and tastes better, while the 16 oz. consumer product is bitter.  She wants to know what that difference is, and also WHY? Kraft won't answer this. She's asked.

Best answer goes to the person with a *detailed* explanation HOW these products differ. Or, whoever can post accurate and complete ingredients AND nutritional info for both institutional & consumer Kraft Roka Bleu Cheese (regular, NOT light) products. Institutional info is hard to find, and buying a gallon is a waste.

PLEASE: *ONLY* real answers from food or foodservice professionals, or someone with a correct answer! NO guesses!  Why? someone with the answer may see the question is answered and not waste time checking it. Stupid or obvious point-grubbing WILL get reported, because it pisses me off. 

This is a favor for mom, so don't tempt me.

Your help is appreciated!
You didn't read the question, MikeL. 
1.There is a notable difference that cannot be explained by shelf time. 
2. She has asked Kraft. Repeatedly. They REFUSE to answer the question. That alone says there's something going on that they don't feel like sharing.

Please, someone else try to answer this.
----------

This question peaked my interest. So I had to ask my suppliers if there is a difference. The answer didn't really surprise me all to much but I didn't expect it. Jim Bo was sorta on the right track at least with the web site. If you look at that page the all of those are institutional packs. Of the two that are gallon packs one is pourable and the other is spoonable. they are two different recipes using two different cheeses. The remainder are the same as the pourable gallon sized just packed in portion control packets. 

Remember that's two recipes and two cheeses. Now comes the part that got me. the 16oz bottles that are purchased from the local store are all the pourable type. The spoonable just would take to much effort to get out of a bottle. It is made, packaged, and shipped from a different manufacturing plant then the commercial stuff. Not only is it an all together different recipe its also a different cheese. That make three recipes and three different cheeses. 

I happened to have what I normally serve (spoonable gallon) and a bottle from the store that was brought in for some reason. Your right they don't take anything alike. The reason? they are made in two different places from different recipes and from different cheeses. 

It's is interesting what you can learn from sales reps when you pressure the right questions.


Do bananas have a sleeping effect on the consumer?


I've heard that bananas have a sleeping effect on the consumer. Being a competitve swimmer I eat bananas at competitions. Maybe they're not doing me any good, I don't know now. Could someone please fill me in with the truth!
----------

Bananas have potassium (good to prevent muscle cramps) natural sugars and carbs....nothing in them that would induce sleepiness (which would be tryptophan...like in turkey and milk...primarily meat products).  While bananas DO contain some tryptophan, it is not enough to make an impact.

Bananas should be fine for swims.
