Eduardo is a young man from Colombia enroled in EC Montreals English Academic Year programme. He has been studying English with us since February 28, 2015. Today, Eduardo presented as part of our Student Academic Lecture Series. He chose to talk about the antivaccination movement. He began by talking about the first vaccine that was invented to combat small pox. It was actually made from cow blood and caused quite the contraversy back in the 15 century.. He then moved on to discuss the vaccine for the measles and his graph illustrated that with the introducion of the vaccine, the cases of measles decreased a great deal from 1974 to present times.. He showed us that there was a recent spike in the measles cases because of this antivaccination movement that is taking place in America. He specifically spoke about former Playboy bunny, Jenny McCarthy, who has been extremely influential in her campaign against vaccines. She was living with Jim Carrey at the time and they appeared on many talk shows ...
A vast array of consumer protection requirements mandate licenses, certifications, inspections, and the like for the businesses that sell us goods and services. Those regulations may once have made sense but - thanks to the Internet - increasingly they do not. Its time for them to go. Barbers, manicurists, and cosmetologists have to be licensed. So do plumbers and roofers. Restaurants are inspected. Lawyers have to pass a bar exam. Real estate appraisers must be registered. Taxicabs have medallions. The list goes on and on, touching on almost every facet of our daily economic lives. And, for the most part, all these requirements are an enormous waste. They dont provide consumers with much in the way of protection. And they come at a considerable cost.

There are growing national concerns regarding the increasing financial burden of out-of-pocket expense for the health care consumer, especially as it relates to physical therapy services. Under certain health plans, copayments for physical therapy services, some as high as $60 per visit, exceed the reimbursement paid by the plan to the provider of care. In addition, in many states and health insurance contracts, the physical therapist (PT) is classified under the specialist designation, which increases the financial burden to the patient by imposing higher copayments and thus restricts access to physical therapy services. High copayments for physical therapy have recently been cited as a reason that some consumers opt to reduce their frequency of care or forgo medically necessary care-running the risk of worsening the underlying condition and/or risking reinjury, thus potentially negatively impacting patient care outcomes. APTA supports state legislation that provides for fair physical therapy ...

Boycotts as a Tactic against Racism. Avnery says Tutu told him: The boycott was immensely important, much more than the armed struggle. But it was the revolutionary, Nelson Mandela, who refused to give up the right to armed struggle, who negotiated the dismantling of South African apartheid.6. Tutu also told Avnery, The importance of the boycott was not only economic but also moral. Avnery writes, It seems to me that Tutus answer emphasizes the huge difference between the South African reality at the time and ours today. So what is Avnery saying? First he states that Tutu is best qualified person to speak to the effectiveness of boycotting as a tool in the fight against racism, then he says Tutu has it wrong. So is Avnery saying, then, that he is best qualified to speak on the effectiveness of boycotts against racism?. Avnery fears that Israeli Jews will feel the whole world is against us. However, isnt that, in a sense, what the purpose is: to show that the whole world is against ...

A producer, importer, distributor, retailer or service provider may also not market any goods or service in a manner that is reasonably likely to imply a misleading or false representation concerning the goods or service as contemplated in Section 41.236 Section 41 prohibits false, misleading or deceptive representations to a consumer, either by direct or indirect, expressly or implied representation of material facts to a consumer,237 by the use of exaggeration, innuendo or ambiguity as to a material fact or failure to disclose facts that will amount to deception,238 or by failure to correct a misapprehension.239 Praising by a supplier of goods or services, sales talk or so called puffing has no binding effect,240 but it could be affected or even prohibited by this provision. An example of puffing would be an advertisement stating: You will lose ten kilograms in four weeks. Guaranteed results!. However, a representation that goods are new or unused in terms of Section 41(3)(b)(iii) will not ...
Between 2010 and 2018, U.S. investments in financial technology, or fintech, grew from almost $2 billion to more than $100 billion, with over half of the increase occurring in 2018 alone. Among the ripest spaces in the financial sector for a technology upgrade is payments-the systems that move money between people and institutions-which currently rely on aging infrastructure and often make consumers wait for access to their funds. Payments innovation is important not only to ensure the expediency and safety of everyday transactions, but also to speed the delivery of government benefits or funds to those in need, especially during emergencies, such as natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting recession. As businesses and policymakers seek to promote the development of new payments technologies, the need to also ensure safety and efficiency will present a range of challenges to regulators and traditional financial systems. Mobile payments, in which consumers conduct transactions ...

Our comments also provide additional recommendations for consumer protections for any future proposed regulations regarding health choice compacts.. ...
US is Incapable of Removing Aspartame from Market, Consumer Protection shifts to International Focus A horrifying conclusion, but these are the facts: without a massive overhaul at the FDA resulting from a very large hue and cry from the American public, nothing will ever get done in terms of the FDA removing this neurotoxic carcinogen from the market. There is considerable hope, however, in efforts going on right now in Sacramento, California to require a carcinogen label on aspartame containing products, as well as international efforts to fight back against the misleading corporate propaganda that assures hundreds of millions that aspartame is somehow safe to consume. Talk about Fake News! These Ajinomoto guys in Japan win the Gold Prize for getting away with audaciously lying to consumers in every nation.

Kim Hall Jackson is coming into her season.. Hall Jackson beat colorectal cancer in 2009, and has gone on to become deeply involved in the American Association for Cancer Researchs (AACRs) Scientist↔ Survivor Program.. Her advocacy begins with her family. Colorectal cancer disproportionately affects African-Americans, and she wants her loved ones to know that screening is absolutely crucial.. When we get together for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Kwanzaa, I am the pain in the butt … literally, she said, drawing laughs from her audience at a recent AACR advocacy meeting. I will do whatever I need to do to make sure my loved ones dont die because they were afraid of a test.. On Nov. 16, 2015, the AACR hosted several dozen patient advocates and executives from leading pharmaceutical companies, as well as several cancer survivors who have participated in the Scientist↔Survivor Program. Their advocacy may begin with family and friends, but it extends well beyond, thanks in part to the ...
As a child, I was fortunate to have family friends who served as missionaries in numerous locations around the world. Perhaps this early introduction to a global mindset laid the foundation for the role I hold today. I remember quite fondly the moments shared with a family who served in Senegal, West Africa, and from an early age, I recall the draw I felt to this region of the world. Even now the call to Africa remains alive and, quite possibly, stronger than ever.. Today, more than three billion people live on less than US $2 per day, with the population of Africa accounting for more than 50 percent of the worlds poor. Additionally, the majority of African countries are experiencing a critical health workforce shortage including eye health professionals, adding to the 1.1 billion people around the world who do not have access to vision correction.. A recent study on Africa, Poverty and Eye Health (2014), suggests that the relationship between poverty and eye health can be interpreted as being ...

The Anti-Tobacco Industry Plan was a comprehensive, long term plan drawn up by Philip Morris to divide the ranks of public health advocacy groups and weaken their efforts to reduce tobacco use. Public health authorities, groups and individuals who work to reduce smoking (such as the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the American Lung Association and Americans for Nonsmokers Rights) are known collectively inside PM as the anti-tobacco industry, the ATI, or antis for short). PM regards these groups as competitors seeking to take away market share. PMs Anti-Tobacco Industry Plan was devised by Joshua Slavitt, Director of Policy and Programs at PM Management Corporation. Slavitt was considered PMs internal expert on the antis and their strategies. Part of PMs plan was to cause dissent among to tobacco control groups by enhancing internal conflicts among them. To carry out this strategy, PM sought what it considered a moderate anti-tobacco group, worked to ...
Anarchists in Ireland have had amazing success in this endeavor. Since 2000, activists from all over Ireland have come together in Rossport for a protest camp to oppose a Shell gas project that residents say would harm their environment and way of life. Five activists were arrested for their involvement in this stunningly successful camp. Anarchists from the Workers Solidarity Movement mobilized in their defense, planning protests and marches, covering buildings with Free the Rossport 5 graffiti, and blockading Shell Oil buildings and work sites. Activists in other countries protested at Irish embassies and consulates. Importantly, their protests always demanded the Rossport 5s freedom and termination of the Shell gas project, and protests to free the Rossport 5 more often than not targeted Shell holdings even though the Irish government imprisoned the five activists. Activists used the Rossport 5 in their protests against Shell to raise awareness and righteous anger against the gas project. ...
The Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) has published its market analysis on digital comparison tools. The analysis contains, a number of relevant findings from a consumer protection perspective, in relation to which the GVH has formulated a series of recommendations.. Comparison websites and applications that enable consumers to compare products and services are also popular in Hungary. Consequently, the GVH considered it important to examine whether consumers can rely on the information provided on such websites and applications and the extent to which the provided information is objective and user-friendly.. The GVH took advantage of the use of a market analysis in the field of consumer protection for the first time. It based its findings and recommendations on several publicly available consumer research studies, the information provided by market participants, reviews of websites and the results of a targeted market research conducted by AC Nielsen Kft.. Prior to making purchasing ...

HHS is proposing that health plans be required to offer benefits that are substantially equal to the benefits of the benchmark plan. This is the same standard that is applied to health plans participating in CHIP. Similar to CHIP, HHS proposes that a health plan have some flexibility to adjust services covered and quantitative limits, as long as they continue to offer coverage for all 10 categories. HHS is considering whether health plan substitutions for the benchmark plan only be allowed within each of the 10 categories, or if health plans might be permitted to substitute benefits across the categories, while maintaining actuarial equivalence, i.e., that the plan would be of the same value in terms of protection to the consumer. However, such plan flexibility may make it more challenging for people to make informed choices to the extent that plans offer considerably different benefits within, or across, the 10 categories ...
The black salve product was advertised both as a cure for cancer and as a legitimate alternative to Aldara a conventional medicine. It was the Delegates view that this comparison could mislead consumers into incorrectly believing that black salve was a natural safe alternative which was more effective than conventional medicines and that the advertisement sought to give credibility to black salve over clinically proven alternatives. The Delegate considered that statements made in the advertisement could lead to consumers inappropriately relying on black salve to treat skin cancer to the exclusion of clinically proven conventional medicine and that the suggestion that black salve will help people cure their own cancers may lead to self-diagnosis and a failure to seek out proper medical attention for a potentially fatal disease. The Delegate found the advertisement was likely to lead to inappropriate treatment of a potentially serious disease and was misleading, therefore in breach ...

Although further work is still needed on the details of the draft Strategic Framework, the Commission agreed with its intent and the overall structure. Dr. Colin Grant, Executive Manager of the Biosecurity Services Group for Plants of Australia, commented that as a document and as a framework I found it very convincing. It provides a clear statement of what the IPPC is and where it proposes to focus its efforts. I strongly endorse and support any efforts that we can put into finalizing this document and having a product that we can use to portray the big picture. Rebecca Bech, Deputy Administrator of Plant Protection and Quarantine of the U.S. Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, indicated her countrys support for the rapid completion of the strategic framework, stating that the strategic framework would position the IPPC to proactively respond to new global challenges. The revised draft Strategic Framework, Medium Term Plan, programme of work and budget and annual operational plan will ...
The problem with the consumer is that the industry is very complex. We have deep insight into the industry and consumers are welcome to become members of the advocacy and have access to information they would otherwise not have available. Another motivation for the establishment of the advocacy group is the dire need to equip the consumer with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Shedding light on the complexities at play, Simasiku said, I became disturbed by the fact that, when I asked consumers to pose questions, to comment on the recent Nampower presentations, they could not do that and the simple reason was that they had no information. And therefore the consumer advocacy group should address that issue and ensure that the consumer has that information because the consumers should not be taken as simple [units] in the equation ...
