Expanding coverage via tax credits: trade-offs and outcomes. (1/43)

In this paper we discuss various options for using refundable tax credits to reduce the number of uninsured persons. The effect of tax credits on the number of uninsured depends on the form of the credit scheme adopted. Moreover, since large subsidies for private insurance directed to low-income persons have never been implemented, there is considerable uncertainty about the effect of various tax credit proposals. We find that small credits will do little to reduce the number of uninsured but that credits covering about half of the premium for a benchmark policy might have a significant effect, especially if they take a fixed-dollar form and can be used for policies with few restrictions. Finally, we discuss the normative issues surrounding the "costs" of these credits schemes, and the policy issues raised by the uncertainty of the effects.  (+info)

Activity-based costing via an information system: an application created for a breast imaging center. (2/43)

Activity-based costing (ABC) is a process that enables the estimation of the cost of producing a product or service. More accurate than traditional charge-based approaches, it emphasizes analysis of processes, and more specific identification of both direct and indirect costs. This accuracy is essential in today's healthcare environment, in which managed care organizations necessitate responsible and accountable costing. However, to be successfully utilized, it requires time, effort, expertise, and support. Data collection can be tedious and expensive. By integrating ABC with information management (IM) and systems (IS), organizations can take advantage of the process orientation of both, extend and improve ABC, and decrease resource utilization for ABC projects. In our case study, we have examined the process of a multidisciplinary breast center. We have mapped the constituent activities and established cost drivers. This information has been structured and included in our information system database for subsequent analysis.  (+info)

Perspectives on the pharmaceutical industry. (3/43)

This paper seeks to provide an economic perspective on the pharmaceutical industry, which has come under increasing criticism on a number of issues. In the main, that criticism amounts to a rather ineffective flailing at the supply side of the market for pharmaceutical products-much of it based on inaccurate perceptions-when a more productive policy would be to strengthen the hitherto weak and poorly informed demand side of the market.  (+info)

Cost recovery beds in public hospitals in Indonesia. (4/43)

A policy of allowing public hospitals to provide some better quality, higher priced hospital beds for those able to pay was introduced as government policy in Indonesia after 1993. A study was conducted in 1998 in three public hospitals in East Java to investigate if the policy objective of cost-recovery was being achieved. Hospital revenue from these commercial beds was less than both the recurrent and total costs of providing them in all three hospitals, but exceeded recurrent costs minus staff salaries in two hospitals. One reason for the low cost-recovery ratios was that between 55% and 66% of the revenue was used as staff incentives, mostly to doctors. This was more than the maximum of 40% stipulated in the policy. The high proportions of total revenue going to staff were a result of hospital management having set bed fees too low. The policy may be contributing to the retention of doctors within public sector employment; however, it is not achieving its stated objective, especially over the longer term where full recovery of salaries and investment costs needs to be considered. Public hospitals that wish to invest in commercial beds need effective management and accounting systems so as to be able to monitor and control costs and set fees at levels that recoup the costs incurred. Further research is required to determine if this form of public-private mix has negative effects on equity and access for poorer patients.  (+info)

Allowing for differential timing in cost analyses: discounting and annualization. (5/43)

There are differences in timing related to when costs of certain inputs are incurred and when they are used over the lifetime of a programme. This paper looks at the issues related to the comparison of cost data over time focusing on discounting and annualization adjustments, which are used by economists to calculate financial and economic costs. The process of discounting is used to deal with the notion of time preference. Time preference implies that future costs are worth less, and hence discounted more, to reflect individual and societal preferences to have resources and money now rather than in the future. While discounting is appropriate in many situations, it is also useful to compute an annual equivalent cost when recurrent costs of an intervention are incurred, or are expected to be incurred, in subsequent years. This approach has the added benefit of illustrating how capital items are actually used during the lifetime of an intervention. This paper presents methods to both discount and annualize costs, and discusses rules-of-thumb to decide when to make these adjustments.  (+info)

Use of linear programming to estimate impact of changes in a hospital's operating room time allocation on perioperative variable costs. (6/43)

BACKGROUND: Administrators at hospitals with a fixed annual budget may want to focus surgical services on priority areas to ensure its community receives the best health services possible. However, many hospitals lack the detailed managerial accounting data needed to ensure that such a change does not increase operating costs. The authors used a detailed hospital cost database to investigate by how much a change in allocations of operating room (OR) time among surgeons can increase perioperative variable costs. METHODS: The authors obtained financial data for all patients who underwent outpatient or same-day admit surgery during a year. Linear programming was used to determine by how much changing the mix of surgeons can increase total variable costs while maintaining the same total hours of OR time for elective cases. RESULTS: Changing OR allocations among surgeons without changing total OR hours allocated will likely increase perioperative variable costs by less than 34%. If, in addition, intensive care unit hours for elective surgical cases are not increased, hospital ward occupancy is capped, and implant use is tracked and capped, perioperative costs will likely increase by less than 10%. These four variables predict 97% of the variance in total variable costs. CONCLUSIONS: The authors showed that changing OR allocations among surgeons without changing total OR hours allocated can increase hospital perioperative variable costs by up to approximately one third. Thus, at hospitals with fixed or nearly fixed annual budgets, allocating OR time based on an OR-based statistic such as utilization can adversely affect the hospital financially. The OR manager can reduce the potential increase in costs by considering not just OR time, but also the resulting use of hospital beds and implants.  (+info)

The financial performance of community health centers, 1996-1999. (7/43)

This paper presents recent financial health trends of community health centers (CHCs) between 1996 and 1999, a time characterized by fiscal and operating challenges. Results show that many individual CHCs have been subject to large changes in payer-mix among uninsured and Medicaid users. Troubling is the finding that more than half of all CHCs reported operating deficits in 1997, 1998 and 1999. CHCs experiencing large increases in the share of uninsured users and those participating in Medicaid managed care appear to have been disproportionately affected. The analyses presented support recommendations for enhanced data collection and for further monitoring of CHCs' financial health.  (+info)

Input-output analysis and the hospital budgeting process. (8/43)

Two hospitals budget systems, a conventional budget and an input-output budget, are compared to determine how they affect management decisions in pricing, output, planning, and cost control. Analysis of data from a 210-bed not-for-profit hospital indicates that adoption of the input-output budget could cause substantial changes in posted hospital rates in individual departments but probably would have no impact on hospital output determination. The input-output approach promises to be a more accurate system for cost control and planning because, unlike the conventional approach, it generates objective signals for investigating variances of expenses from budgeted levels.  (+info)

Many people do important work and do a good job but dont receive the kind of pensions that public employees do. I dont think that youre listening; were not acrimonious toward teachers. We dont argue that teachers didnt do a good job. But the size of public employee pensions are bankrupting the city and state. The money just isnt there. And all the public employees unions do is whine about how tough they have it instead of making a positive contribution to how to solve the problem.. The argument that the pension underfund was caused by politicians taking the money for other purposes doesnt tell the entire story. (By the way, one of those other purposes was to support the annual state contributions to schools.) The fact that the pensions are so overly generous and couldnt be afford in the first place also contributes to the problem. Besides, where were those public employee union leaders when the people they donated campaign money to were raiding the pension funds? The people that your ...

A high-profile Wisconsin union leader is stepping down. Marty Beil has served as executive director of the Wisconsin State Employees Union, AFSCME Council 24, since 1985. Beil said he leaves as the union is rebuilding in the wake of Governor Scott Walkers Act 10, which all but eliminated public sector union rights.. Id be fooling you if I told you it wasnt a difficult thing since 2011 under Act 10, but weve grown, weve gotten stronger, Beil said. Two out of three public employee union members dropped out, and the states three AFSCME local councils consolidated. But Beil said young members are stepping up.. I feel comfortable in that, but at the same time we cant let our guard down, because Walker and his cronies in the legislature will continue coming after us, so its a constant fight, Beil said. Beil, whos 68 and has been a union member since 1969, will retire at the end of the month, and plans on spending more time with his new grandchild.. Ive spent 30 years in the chair as the ...
By June Wise. September 3, 2015 (San Diegos East County) -- A Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, has stirred controversy for defying a federal court order to issue marriage licenses after the Supreme Court declared marriage a constitutional right for same-sex couples. She claims giving gay couples licenses to wed would violate her religious beliefs, yet she has refused to resign. Today, a judge ordered her jailed for contempt of court.. If government workers could refuse to serve the public anytime a law conflicts with their private religious views, that would be a dangerous and trouble-prone path. Divorce, birth control, war, and blood transfusions are all prohibited in some religions. Some faiths ban immodest dress, adultery, consumption of caffeine or alcohol, musical instruments, celebrating birthdays, serving certain foods, and seeking psychiatric care. Should public employees in jobs with responsibilities for such matters be able to refuse to follow laws governing all of these issues and ...

Lanny Ebenstein, a frequent contributor to the Santa Barbara News-Press opinion page who often goes after employee unions and pensions, is taking his fight statewide.. At a time when the public is becoming more and more disgruntled at the salary and pensions of government employees, Ebenstein - who, as president of the newly formed California Center for Public Policy, recently issued a report on public employee compensation - is set to file a petition with the state to introduce a ballot measure that, if passed, would end collective bargaining for all city, county, and state employees. The bottom line is public employees have higher pay, better benefits, more days off, greater job security, and especially higher pensions than the private sector, Ebenstein explained.. Public-sector collective bargaining is an idea that has come and gone, Ebenstein said. The issue should be a nonpartisan one, he stated, explaining that if public employees were paid a fair wage, more money could be open for ...

The upward escalation of the morbidity rate in India has led to an increased demand for hospital services. At the same time, the hospital management rises the health care cost substantially in India to harvest at the right time. Similarly, the hospitals doubled the patient care charges, as the admission in the hospitals become a nightmare for the people. Here, the paper attempts to understand the difference between the actual cost spent by the hospital and a bill produced to a patient for a normal vaginal delivery through cost accounting model. With a combined prospective and retrospective approach, the author has done cost accounting for a normal vaginal delivery using a fixed-unfixed cost accounting framework. Using the convenience sampling technique, 30 records were audited and 8 normal deliveries were observed. The tool was developed by the investigator, which consists of the demographic data and observation checklist of consumables including drugs, equipment, furniture, and fittings. The maternal

TALLAHASSEE -- House Appropriations chief Sam Bell said Friday the 1987 budget will be ``austere`` at best and may lack funds for needed increases, including planned salary increase for public employees. Unless the Legislature can find new sources of revenue, the 1987-88 budget will have to be little nothing more than a continuation of the 1986-87 budget, Bell said. That would mean no new programs, and the cancellation of planned 5 percent pay raises for teachers and other public employees. Even a bare-bones budget, including increases that must be made, the planned salary raises and annual equipment purchases, would cost $500 million more than the state will have. But Florida`s constitution prohibits deficit budgeting, so the Legislature must either find new sources of revenue or start making cuts, Bell said.

A disturbing number of people are blaming public sector unions for states current budget crises (also here, here and here).

As a result,

The state Organization of Management Confidential Employees took the opportunity of the overwhelming ratification of a three-year contract for the Public Employees Federation to once again call for the states roughly 9,000 M/Cs, who due to their job classifications are not represented by a union, to receive raises that keep pace with their unionized co-workers in the years to come.. OMCEs Fight for Pay Parity on behalf of its members has been a long one, said a statement from OMCE President Barbara Zaron. That fight has been made more difficult because it creates an awkward tension and dynamic with office colleagues and friends - many of whom share similar job responsibilities and titles..

2:24 pm (The following post was authored by Colin Watts, President of Weight Watchers Health Solutions. Weight Watchers is a member of the Healthcare Leadership Council.). In our conversations with employers, were often asked: What works better when it comes to employee wellness programs - penalties or incentives? In other words, should we use a carrot, a stick or some combination? Its a great question and one were studying closely through our research. One interesting example is a program Weight Watchers is supporting for the Oregon Educators Benefit Board (OEBB) and Oregon Public Employees Benefit Board (PEBB), which provide health insurance coverage to state teachers and public employees.. In 2009, obesity-related ailments were driving health care costs for the State of Oregon public employees and educators to the tune of nearly $1.6 billion. At the same time, in partnership with OEBB and PEBBs health plan providers (Providence, Kaiser Permanente and ModaHealth,) Weight Watchers - both ...

So what what we re doing is just factoring out this actual quantity here from our total variable cost here so you look at the actual quantity here and that s looking at the actual versus your flexible budget..

Van de Brooke began telling voters early in the race that she was the only woman in the race who favored abortion rights and same-sex marriage. Democratic, labor and womens rights organizations pounded home the same message in mailers delivered the final week.. To Andersens credit, her response was direct and pitch-perfect: Yes, she personally opposes abortion and same-sex marriage, but county supervisors have no jurisdiction in either arena, and she has no social issues agenda. She is running, she said, to reform public employee pensions, solve budget problems and create jobs.. Her decision to focus on pension reform was fortuitous as well. The debate over the appropriate benefit levels for public employees has ramped up across the country as government agencies suffering revenue losses cut services. Voters in San Jose and San Diego on Tuesday approved pension measures that, if they hold up in court, require current employees to either pay more out of their pockets or receive reduced ...

Employees spike pensions by using overtime, vacation time and similar benefits to drive up their income before retirement. CalPERS, the largest pension fund in the country, ran afoul of the governors wishes by permitting such temporary pay increases to count as pensionable income, the amount used to calculate the size of retirement pensions.. The move flew in the face of Assembly Bill 340, signed into law by Brown as the Public Employees Pension Reform Act. Its aim was to make a dent in the public pensions crisis that has threatened to overwhelm city and state budgets. Through a series of complex regulatory adjustments, PEPRA made newer public employees much more responsible for paying the cost of their retirement benefits. While Brown and his allies cheered the over $50 billion in expected savings over 30 years, unions such as the Service Employees International Union decried the changes.. One of Browns key objectives was to use PEPRA to crack down on pension spiking. As The Wall Street ...

Ontario PC leader says he can create a million jobs in the next eight years. How? Well, to start, hell fire 100,000 public employees.. Does this seem weird to you? It should. Because theres a problem with Hudaks plan: It wont work.. Hudaks plan is based on the fantasy that you can create jobs by taking money out of the economy. You cant. Provincial spending puts more than $100 billion into Ontario every year. The wages of public employees buy groceries, pay rent, and put shoes on feet. Public sector wages are a key part of consumer spending. And when you cut consumer spending, you cut jobs.. Ontarios economy is not strong these days. Government spending is shrinking. Business investment is weak. And were spending more on imports than were earning on exports. This leaves only consumer spending to keep the economy afloat. Problem is, the typical consumers income hasnt gone up for decades, and household debt is at record levels. So consumer spending is weak, too.. So how will Tim Hudak ...

Now for the bad news. In 1999, in the midst of the dot-com boom, CalPERS made a horrible miscalculation. Thinking that the rise in the stock market would go on forever, it sponsored Senate Bill 400 to boost benefits. Investment earnings had averaged 13.5% for a decade, and a few state and school plans had 100% funding - meaning zero unfunded obligations - some were even overfunded, with assets totaling more than they needed to pay every dollar in pension benefits that would come due.. Without going into all the gory details, suffice it to say that SB 400 supercharged pension benefits for most public employees. Seeking union support for his upcoming re-election campaign, Gov. Gray Davis signed the bill. Campaign finance records confirm that public employee unions contributed generously to Davis campaign committee in 2002. The prison guards political action committee wrote checks totaling more than $1 million.. Years later, the worst of the abuses from SB 400, but certainly not all, were ...

Anti-government conservatives have been attacking public employees and their pensions for years, but the attacks picked up after the financial crisis in 2008, when the stock market crashed, leaving many public plans-and private plans, too-temporarily underfunded. Rather than going after Wall Street and searching for ways to prevent a repeat of the sub-prime mortgage crisis or too-big-to-fail banking, which threatened the entire economy (and not just public employee pensions), conservatives are trying to use the crisis to cut pension benefits. They want to claim that the current state of public pensions is somehow inevitable, even though it is unprecedented and clearly the result of the market crash. They want people to ignore the cause of the pension plans underfunding and simply do away with them, replacing them with individual accounts, just as they want to destroy Social Security and replace it into private accounts.. As part of this anti-pension campaign, National Review Online recently ...

In October 2005 the Toronto Star reported on the case of a New Brunswick autistic youth who was being housed by the Province of New Brunswick on the gounds of a youth correctional facility. The youth had committed no crime. The state of New Brunswicks youth and adult residential care and treatment facilities was so bad, virtually non-existent for those with more severe and challenging autism disorder, that the province felt it was the only place that could accommodate the youth while they waited for his admission to a facility in the United States. The Toronto Star article follows this comment. Unfortunately, as the letter from Stephen Robbins posted here a couple of days ago indicates things have not improved any since then. In New Brunswick we must still export our autistic youths and adults out of the country for decent residential care and treatment ...

I have said often on this blog that I am very happy with the progress that has been made here in New Brunswick in addressing the needs for evidence based autism treatment and in ensuring that autistic children receive a real, quality education. There are still problems that have to be addressed concerning preschool interventions for and education of autistic children but the distance we have traveled in the six years since then Health Minister Elvy Robichaud announced in the New Brunswick legislature that the government was committing funds specifically to autism is remarkable. That progress has, for the most part though, been confined to autistic children. New Brunswicks adults with autism disorders are badly in need of improvements to the barely existent residential care system for autistic adults ...

The way I remember The Melody, it seems less of a bar, but more of a clubhouse, where everybody was friends and respected each others differences. You just felt like you belonged when you were there, you were part of something great. You almost knew in the back of your mind, as you stood in the center of the thumping bass downstairs and the stinging crush of guitars upstairs, that you were never going to have nights like these EVER again. - Ken Heim, North Jersey…. After a few drinks, that I would get two at a time because trying to get to the bar after 11 was a real challenge, the music would take me over, and the crowd on the dance floor would consume me. Even on the coldest winter nights of winter, we would all come out of there soaked from sweat. - Bob Schuster, New Brunswick…. Although I have many memories of good times at The Melody, only one event sticks out. On Feb. 3, 1983, as I sat alone sipping a cocktail in a half-empty bar, I spied an attractive young lady enter and make ...
Julia Catherine (Beckwith) Hart is credited as being the first Canadian novelist. She was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, on 10 March 1796 to Nehemiah Beckwith, a United Empire Loyalist, and his second wife, Julie-Louise Le Brun de Duplessis, the daughter of a Quebec advocate and first cousin of the renowned early historian Abbe Ferland. Nehemiah Beckwith settled in New Brunswick in 1779 and founded a profitable shipbuilding business, through which he became largely responsible for establishing regular water transportation between Fredericton and Saint John. He was also known to have done business with Benedict Arnold. Julie-Louise may have been working as a governess at the residence of Thomas Carleton, Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick, when she met and married Nehemiah in Fredericton. Julie-Louise abandoned her Catholic faith soon thereafter and adopted her husbands Wesleyan Methodism with apparently little consequence to her relationship with her family, as she continued to travel to ...

The mayors office budget will be 12% less this fiscal year compared to last years, which ended in June.. MACYS THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE WILL BE TV-ONLY EVENT, WITHOUT LIVE PROCESSION. I couldnt have imagined no action by Washington, D.C., up until this point, de Blasio said. I thought it would be an article of faith that there would be a federal stimulus, but there hasnt been, and I see no indication that there will be for the remainder of this year.. With a mayoral salary of $258,541 per year, de Blasio is expected to miss out on around $4,972 in a week-long furlough.. The mayors office found $12 million in savings over previous budgets, he said.. Weve already had to make some tough cuts that have affected this city and the services we provide. Were tried everything we can to stop from those cuts becoming worse. We dont want to take away jobs from public employees, we dont want to take away services from communities that need [them], de Blasio said.. NEW YORK CITY LOSES HUNDREDS ...
MORRIS COUNTY - The Assembly unanimously passed bipartisan legislation to increase health care options and savings for teachers and other public education employees. Republican sponsors BettyLou DeCroce and Ron Dancer say the legislation helps everyone, including taxpayers.. When we can provide savings for public employees and taxpayers in one bill, we are doing our job, said Dancer (R-Monmouth). This bill exemplifies the work that needs to be done and I aim to accomplish as a legislator.. The bill (A20/S2273) provides two lower-cost health plan options to public education employees, permitting a choice of three plans, and reduces premium rates to a low of 1.7 for single coverage and up to 7.2 percent for family plans based on salary. ...
Michigans new Republican governor Rick Snyder announced a budget February 17 that attacks the elderly, schoolchildren, public employees, municipal services, and low- to middle-income earners. The $1.7 billion that the governor proposes to raise through a combination of budget cuts and tax increases for retirees and workers will be used to finance a $1.8 billion tax break for businesses.. Snyders plan constitutes an open and direct transfer of wealth from the working class to the wealthy. The claim by the governor that his budget represents a vision of shared sacrifice is absurd on its face. The rich and the corporate elite are not being asked to sacrifice a penny.. In order to raise $900 million, Snyder proposes putting an end to Michigans practice of not taxing retirement income, a move that Eric Schneidewind of the American Association for Retired People described as equivalent to declaring war on older Michiganders. Tens of thousands of retirees who live off public and private pensions ...
Over the weekend, Gov. Ned Lamont signed a bill into law that will allow government unions to have more access to new and current employees and enshrine union dues authorizations into state law.. Senate Bill 908 was fashioned as a response to the United States Supreme Courts 2018 ruling in Janus v. AFSCME that said government unions could no longer require public employees to pay a fee to a union as a condition of employment under their Freedom of Speech rights.. The Janus decision had an immediate effect, essentially stripping public-sector unions of millions in what were known as agency fees - a fee paid by an employee who did not want to join the union and pay full union dues. The effect of the Janus decision on union membership, however, has been difficult to gauge. Agency fee payers were not considered members and while union officials condemned the decision, some said it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as public-sector unions attempted more outreach campaigns for new ...
These political developments will obviously impact public policy, including redistricting, state budgets, and matters that influence the practice of medicine.. The once-a-decade redistricting process begins next spring, when census figures are transmitted to states. In most instances, the elected legislature and governor controls how state and congressional districts are drawn. GOP gains in Great Lakes states, which are expected to lose seats in Congress, were therefore especially important. Observers expect Republican legislatures in Pennsylvania and Ohio to draw new lines that combine two historically Democratic districts, thereby reducing that partys number in Congress by at least one.. The National Conference of State Legislatures estimates that states face budget shortfalls totaling $72 billion. Republican-led states will depend on across-the-board spending cuts, privatization, and public employee benefit reform. Of incoming Democratic governors, only New Yorks Andrew Cuomo promises not ...

In the aftermath of World War II military recruitment shifted significantly. With no war calling men and women to duty, the United States refocused its recruitment efforts to present the military as a career option, and as a means of achieving a higher education. A majority - 55% - of all recruitment posters would serve this end. And though peacetime would not last, factors such as the move to an all-volunteer military would ultimately keep career-oriented recruitment efforts in place.[93] The Defense Department turned to television syndication as a recruiting aid from 1957 to 1960 with a filmed show, Country Style, USA. On February 20, 1970, the President's Commission on an All-Volunteer Armed Force unanimously agreed that the United States would be best served by an all-volunteer military. In supporting this recommendation, the committee noted that recruitment efforts would have to be intensified, as new enlistees would need to be convinced rather than conscripted. Much like the post-World War ...
The album received positive reviews from sources such as PopMatters, AllMusic, and the BBC. Paul Clarke of the BBC wrote that "Hopkins [is] capable of producing music as epic, soaring and emotional as any power ballad in his own way though. Take "Light Through the Veins" for example...a close relative of Ulrich Schnauss' "In All the Wrong Places", it's a majestic piece of widescreen shoegazing which grows ever more expansive throughout its entire ten-minute amount of reflected glory could ever fully illuminate Insides' mysterious depths."[6] According to other reviews, the album "takes its cues from ambient electronica, but uses strings and piano, along with some very tasty beats and dubstep-influenced bass on some tracks."[7] Alan Ranta of Tiny Mix Tapes stated the album "strikes me as his single most aggressive release yet. His sense of timing, the clarity of his production, and the variety of effects he employs draw you into the story that each instrumental tells. Jon Hopkins is ...
In 319 Dark Street, protagonist Amanda Kayne is being stalked by hitmen after refusing to take a loss in her last fight. As a further complication, she has to reside in a decrepit building in the fictional Michigan city of Middlebay as a condition for inheriting her uncle's fortune. Amanda spends her time fending off attackers while wise-cracking with her black cat and making a living singing in a jazz quartet. 319 Dark Street features a strong film noir ambiance and its characters make frequent use of dark humor.[3] ...
In parallel to this dynamic approach to cosmology, one long-standing debate about the structure of the cosmos was coming to a climax - the Great Debate (1917 to 1922) - with early cosmologists such as Heber Curtis and Ernst Öpik determining that some nebulae seen in telescopes were separate galaxies far distant from our own.[12] While Heber Curtis argued for the idea that spiral nebulae were star systems in their own right as island universes, Mount Wilson astronomer Harlow Shapley championed the model of a cosmos made up of the Milky Way star system only. This difference of ideas came to a climax with the organization of the Great Debate on 26 April 1920 at the meeting of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. The debate was resolved when Edwin Hubble detected Cepheid Variables in the Andromeda Galaxy in 1923 and 1924.[13][14] Their distance established spiral nebulae well beyond the edge of the Milky Way. Subsequent modelling of the universe explored the possibility that ...
Sometimes the name "Réti Opening" is used for the opening move 1.Nf3,[1] although most sources define the Réti more narrowly as the sequence 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4.[2] A flank opening, it is the third most popular of the twenty legal opening moves White has, behind only 1.e4 and 1.d4.[3][4][5] The move has been described by Edmar Mednis as a "perfect and flexible opening"[6] and by others such as Aron Nimzowitsch as "certainly the most solid move, whereas moves such as 1.e4 and 1.d4 are both 'committal' and 'compromising'."[7] The game can transpose into many other openings that usually start with 1.e4, 1.d4, or 1.c4. If Black is not careful, there is the risk of running unprepared into a highly theoretical opening, e.g. after 1.Nf3 c5 White can play 2.e4 leading to the mainline Sicilian Defense. Other common transpositions are to various lines of the Queen's Gambit Declined (after e.g. 1.Nf3 d5 2.d4 Nf6 3.c4) or the Catalan Opening (after e.g. 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 e6 4.0-0 Be7 5.c4).[6] The main ...

In a vertebrate without a significant corticospinal tract, gait is mainly controlled by the red nucleus.[4] However, in primates, where the corticospinal tract is dominant, the rubrospinal tract may be regarded as vestigial in motor function. Therefore, the red nucleus is less important in primates than in many other mammals.[1][5] Nevertheless, the crawling of babies is controlled by the red nucleus, as is arm swinging in typical walking.[6] The red nucleus may play an additional role in controlling muscles of the shoulder and upper arm via projections of its magnocellular part.[7][8] In humans, the red nucleus also has limited control over hands, as the rubrospinal tract is more involved in large muscle movement such as that for the arms (but not for the legs, as the tract terminates in the superior thoracic region of the spinal cord). Fine control of the fingers is not modified by the functioning of the red nucleus but relies on the corticospinal tract.[9] The majority of red nucleus axons do ...
The almond is a deciduous tree growing to 4-12.2 metres (13-40 feet) in height,[8] with a trunk of up to 30 centimetres (12 inches) in diameter. The young twigs are green at first, becoming purplish where exposed to sunlight, then gray in their second year. The leaves are 8-13 cm (3-5 in) long,[9] with a serrated margin and a 2.5 cm (1 in) petiole. The flowers are white to pale pink, 3-5 cm (1-2 in) diameter with five petals, produced singly or in pairs and appearing before the leaves in early spring.[10][11] Almond grows best in Mediterranean climates with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. The optimal temperature for their growth is between 15 and 30 °C (59 and 86 °F) and the tree buds have a chilling requirement of 200 to 700 hours below 7.2 °C (45.0 °F) to break dormancy.[12] Almonds begin bearing an economic crop in the third year after planting. Trees reach full bearing five to six years after planting. The fruit matures in the autumn, 7-8 months after flowering.[11][13] The ...

Evaluators sometimes combine elements during the actual test. If a dog fails the test initially, owners can continue training with their dog and retake for the test in the future. If all ten objectives are met, the handler can apply for a certificate and special dog pet tag from the AKC stating that the dog has earned the CGC.[7] Dogs do not have to be registered with the AKC to earn a CGC, nor do they have to be purebred or, in fact, registered with any canine organization.[8][9] The goal is to promote good citizenship for all dogs. Since its inception, the CGC program has become the model for similar programs around the world, is the backbone of other exams, such as those given for therapy dogs, and is a good starting point for more advanced dog training.[10] ...
Belardinelli uses multiple mediums to paint, with nail polish featuring as a dominant medium of his art since 1985.[2][10] He draws and paints daily in large 'At-A-Glance' journals which bear witness to his life.[11][12] He has exhibited at the Outsider Art Fair annually since 1995, and his work has been displayed in the American Visionary Art Museum.[2][13] In 2001, several of Belardinelli's nail polish paintings were included in the "High On Life - Transcending Addictions" show, which was curated by Tom Paterson at AVAM. He has participated in "Revelations and Reflections of American Self Taught Artists", and has exhibited worldwide, but most extensively in Europe and the Americas.[3][14] He was listed in "Outsider Art Fair: 10 Artists to Buy Now" in The Daily Beast.[15] Belardinelli has no formal art training, but is a graduate of City University of New York School of Law.[16][17][18] He is an attorney licensed by The State Bar of New Jersey (both State and Federal Courts), the Southern and ...
... is named after its founder, Joe Coulombe. The company began in 1958 as a Greater Los Angeles area chain known as Pronto Market convenience stores.[7][8] Coulombe felt the original Pronto Markets were too similar to 7-Eleven, which he described as the "800-pound gorilla of convenience stores", concerned the competition would be too much.[9][10][11] Coulombe developed the idea of the Trader Joe's South Seas motif while on vacation in the Caribbean.[12] The Tiki culture craze was still widespread in the United States in the 1960s, so in a direct nod to the fad, the Trader Joe's name itself was a spoof on Trader Vic's, the famous tiki-themed restaurant that had opened its first southern California location in the Beverly Hilton in 1955. Eating at Trader Vic's in Beverly Hills was notoriously expensive, but the Trader Joe's in Pasadena provided an irreverent and less expensive offering of food and drink.[13] Coulombe noted two trends in the US that informed the merchandising of his new ...
David Lynch has of course used animals within his back catalogue of work before. Dogs for instance feature in nearly every one of his movies usually as a visual prop: who could forget the scene in Wild at Heart in which our canine friend scampers away with the Bank teller's severed hand? Or the mewling pups in Mary X's living room in Eraserhead? Indeed a dog, albeit in cartoon form, took centre stage in Lynch's cartoon series for the LA Reader, The Angriest Dog in the World. But it is here on his website that Lynch seems to be opening up more to the wonders of nature: Bees, Coyotes and Dead Mice all have a part to play in various guises and manifestations within, and as part of the pay-per-view series, the Rabbit has been given the starring role.[3] ...
Israel occupied two-thirds of the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War, and subsequently built Jewish settlements in the area. In 1981, Israel passed the Golan Heights Law, which extended Israeli "law, jurisdiction, and administration" to the area, including the Shebaa farms area. This declaration was declared "null and void and without international legal effect" by United Nations Security Council Resolution 497. The Federated States of Micronesia recognized the annexation, and in 2021 the United States joined in recognition. The vast majority of Syrian Druze in Majdal Shams, the largest Syrian village in the Golan, have held onto their Syrian passports. When Israel annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, 95% of the Majdal Shams residents refused Israeli citizenship, and are still firmly of that opinion, in spite of the Syrian Civil War.[34] On 29 November 2012, the United Nations General Assembly reaffirmed it was "[d]eeply concerned that Israel has not withdrawn from the Syrian ...
... is a major topic in the exposition of Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986).[1] Beginning in the 1930s, he often commented on the subject, which became a recurring theme in his work.[2] He is considered to have been mainly responsible for the subsequent interest in both the term and the concept.[3] Krishnamurti held that outside of strictly practical, technical matters, the presence and action of choice indicates confusion and subtle bias: an individual who perceives a given situation in an unbiased manner, without distortion, and therefore with complete awareness, will immediately, naturally, act according to this awareness - the action will be the manifestation and result of this awareness, rather than the result of choice. Such action (and quality of mind) is inherently without conflict.[4] He did not offer any method to achieve such awareness; [5] in his view application of technique cannot possibly evolve into, or result in, true choicelessness - just as ...

In 1975, Irish-American friends Jimmy Markum, Sean Devine, and Dave Boyle are playing hockey in a Boston street. After deciding to write a mural of their names on a patch of wet concrete, two men, claiming to be police officers, kidnap Dave and sexually abuse him for four days until he escapes. Twenty-five years later, Jimmy is an ex-convict and neighborhood convenience store owner; Sean is a detective with the Massachusetts State Police whose pregnant wife Lauren recently left him, and Dave is a blue-collar worker continually haunted by the abduction and rape. Jimmy and Dave are related by marriage, Dave's wife Celeste and Jimmy's second wife Annabeth being cousins. Jimmy's daughter from his first marriage, Katie, plans to run away to Las Vegas with Brendan Harris, a boy from a family Jimmy despises whom she has been secretly dating. One night, Dave sees Katie and her friends at a local bar. That same night, Katie is murdered, and Dave comes home bloodied and injured. He tells his wife that he ...
Neanderthals used pulses when cooking meals 70,000 years ago.[6] Archaeologists have discovered traces of pulse production around Ravi River (Punjab), the seat of the Indus Valley civilisation, dating to c. 3300 BCE. Meanwhile, evidence of lentil cultivation has also been found in Egyptian pyramids and cuneiform recipes.[7] Dry pea seeds have been discovered in a Swiss village that are believed to date back to the Stone Age. Archaeological evidence suggests that these peas must have been grown in the eastern Mediterranean and Mesopotamian regions at least 5,000 years ago and in Britain as early as the 11th century.[8] The soybean was first domesticated around 5,000 years ago in China from a descendant of the wild vine Glycine soja.[9] In the United States, the domesticated soybean was introduced in 1770 by Benjamin Franklin after he sent seeds to Philadelphia from France. Henry Ford, a vegetarian, was the first person to use soybeans for large-scale industrial purposes. Concentrating on his ...
John Jones (1818 - 1898), also known as Ioan Bryngwyn Bach and Y Seryddwr (The Astronomer), was a Welsh amateur astronomer.[1] He was born at Bryngwyn Bach, Dwyran, Anglesey, and received only an elementary education. From the age of twelve, he worked as a farm labourer. He later worked as a counter of cargoes of slate as they were loaded on to ships in Bangor, in modern Gwynedd. Unusually for someone of his background, he was not only a musician and a poet but proficient in several languages. He is noted mainly for his interest in astronomy: he constructed his own telescopes - including "Jumbo", reputed to be the first silver-on-glass reflecting telescope in Wales.[2] He died at Bangor in 1898.[2][3] ...
... was a Victoria-class cruise ship launched in 1995 and operated by Costa Cruises, a subsidiary of Carnival Corporation & plc, from 1996 until 2020. Built at Bremen, Germany, she was designed to reflect the spirit of Italy, which was enhanced in a 2013 refit. During her service with Costa she operated in many areas, including Asia. In June 2020, in light of the economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Costa Victoria was moved to the Port of Piombino, Italy and decommissioned. She was sold in December 2020 for possible conversion to worker's accommodation at a Genoa shipyard, but resold for demolition in Turkey, where she arrived on 28 January 2021. ...
... (Finnish: Inarijärvi/Inarinjärvi, Northern Sami: Anárjávri, Inari Sami: Aanaarjävri, Skolt Sami: Aanarjäuʹrr, Swedish: Enare träsk, Norwegian: Enaresjøen) is the largest lake in Sápmi and the third-largest lake in Finland. It is located in the northern part of Lapland, north of the Arctic Circle. The lake is 117-119 metres (384-390 ft) above sea level, and is regulated at the Kaitakoski power plant in Russia. The freezing period normally extends from November to early June. The best-known islands of the lake are Hautuumaasaari ("Graveyard Island"), which served as a cemetery for ancient Sami people, and Ukonkivi ("Ukko's Stone"), a sacrificial place of the ancient inhabitants of the area. There are over 3,000 islands in total. Trout, lake salmon, Arctic char, white fish, grayling, perch and pike are found in Lake Inari. The lake covers 1,040 km2 (400 sq mi). It empties northwards through the Paatsjoki at the mouth of the Varangerfjord, which is a bay of the Barents Sea. The ...
During World War II, the United States government, noting Telkes's expertise, recruited her to serve as a civilian advisor to the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD).[13] There, she developed a solar-powered water desalination machine, completing a prototype in 1942.[4] It came to be one of her most notable inventions because it helped soldiers get clean water in difficult situations and also helped solve water problems in the US Virgin Islands.[14] However, its initial deployment was delayed until the end of the war because Hoyt C. Hottel repeatedly re-negotiated its manufacturing contracts.[4] Telkes identified solar heat storage as the most "critical problem" facing designers of a workable solar-heated house.[15] One of her specialties was phase-change materials that absorb or release heat when they change from solid to liquid. She hoped to use phase-change materials like molten salts for storing thermal energy in active heating systems. One of her materials of choice was ...

... s are deployed over the side of the vessel or platform using a gantry or A-frame from which the clump weight and the bell are suspended. On dive support vessels with in-built saturation systems the bell may be deployed through a moon pool. The bell handling system is also known as the launch and recovery system (LARS).[21] The bell umbilical supplies gas to the bell gas panel, and is separate from the divers' excursion umbilicals, which are connected to the gas panel on the inside of the bell. The bell umbilical is deployed from a large drum or umbilical basket and care is taken to keep the tension in the umbilical low but sufficient to remain near vertical in use and to roll up neatly during recovery, as this reduces the risk of the umbilical snagging on underwater obstructions.[21] Wet bell handling differs from closed bell handling in that there is no requirement to transfer the bell to and from the chamber system to make a pressure-tight connection, and that a wet bell will be ...
... was one of the female filmmakers featured in "Women on Top", the first episode of the Netflix documentary series Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On, focusing on the filming of "Hysterical Piano Concert" (XConfessions 2016). Gail Dines writes that rather than being a film of empowerment in which a female pianist fulfills a fantasy, the woman with no prior film experience is subjected to stereotypical porn sex that leaves her traumatized and in pain, but is persuaded by Lust to continue.[37] Kat Banyard states that "feminist porn" as promoted by Lust is another brand that does not challenge the mainstream, but serves as another entry point for potential customers.[38] While not in favor of any type of censorship, which she views as having greater effect on the powerless, philosopher Amia Srinivasan says that sex on film impedes the development of sexual imagination, which has a greater impact on the young.[39] In a study of feminist pornography, Carmen Pena Ardid, Professor of Literature and ...
Carano started her career in the sport of Muay Thai. Her then-boyfriend Kevin Ross, a pro Muay Thai fighter, got her involved.[16] After achieving a Muay Thai record of 12-1-1,[17] Carano received an offer from Jamie Levine to participate in the first-ever sanctioned female MMA bout in Nevada with World Extreme Fighting to fight Leiticia Pestovа (a bout Carano won in 38 seconds). She was invited to the World Pro Fighting show in Las Vegas to fight Rosi Sexton.[18] Carano won the fight by knocking out Sexton late in the second round.[citation needed] Carano faced Elaina Maxwell at Strikeforce: Triple Threat on December 8, 2006. She won the fight via unanimous decision.[19] Carano proved critics wrong when she defeated Maxwell for the second time; the first victory coming in a Muay Thai bout. The fight was the first female fight in Strikeforce. She fought on the February 10, 2007 Showtime EliteXC card, defeating Julie Kedzie via unanimous decision in what was called the "Fight of the Night".[20] ...

The Southern Nevada Women's Correctional Facility opened September 1, 1997. It was built and operated by Corrections Corporation of America.[2] Built for $28 million,[3] it was the first and only privately run prison in Nevada.[4][5] It relieved prisons at Carson City and Indian Springs. A women's facility at Carson City, Warm Springs Correctional Center, was converted to house male inmates. The 145,000-square-foot (13,500 m2) Southern Nevada Women's Correctional Center was built to house around 500 inmates. The dedication was held on Saturday, September 13, 1997, with inmates being moved in the following week.[4] In 2003, Correctional Officer Randy Easter raped inmate Korinda Martin. A judge sentenced the two to probation.[6] On February 23, 2004, the Corrections Corporation of America said that they would not renew their contract to operate the facility, which expired on October 1, 2004. Officials stated that the company lost over $1 million per year while operating the facility. The Nevada ...
R-phrases (short for risk phrases) are defined in Annex III of European Union Directive 67/548/EEC: Nature of special risks attributed to dangerous substances and preparations. The list was consolidated and republished in Directive 2001/59/EC,[1] where translations into other EU languages may be found. These risk phrases are used internationally, not just in Europe, and there is an ongoing effort towards complete international harmonization using the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) which now generally replaces these risk phrases. ...
