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 Tutu"s 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, isn"t 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 ...

17/09/2013. A deadly form of "bird flu", the H7N9 Avian Influenza A virus, was detected in four provinces of eastern China, where it has infected 135 people, and 44 of the infected individuals have died in the course of the past five months. These incidents are of particular importance, since it is the first time that this subtype of the Avian Influenza A virus has been verifiably transmitted from infected poultry to humans. The public health risk remains low at present. No cases of poultry or human infection from this novel H7N9 subtype have yet been reported outside China. The virus is classified as "low pathogenic", which means that the infected birds appear healthy although they carry the H7N9 virus and are thus a potential threat to human health. ...

For many health advocates across California, today has been highlighted on the calendar for months. Thats because its the day that the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research released the results of the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) for 2013 and 2014. As the most detailed source of health data for Californias diverse population, CHIS is instrumental to our advocacy efforts here at CPEHN as we work to eliminate the inequities faced by communities of color.. During a seminar earlier today, Dr. Ninez Ponce (a former CPEHN board member) and Dr. David Grant discussed the survey and some of the results. One exciting new feature of CHIS is that you can now access individual year data from 2011 to 2014. Before, the data was released every two years, but now the plan is to release new data each year:. ...

Had the Committee checked with Baby Milk Action during the past three years, would it have come to a different decision about Nestlés claims and the proposal to put to the Assembly? In response to a Baby Milk Action letter-writing campaign in 2003 backed by pressure from the boycott, Nestlé not only admitted producing the above leaflets, it said it was "preparing new materials for health professionals in Southern Africa with increased focus on the factual and scientific matters in these materials." The boycott brings results. No wonder Nestlé wants the URC to end its support for the boycott and compromise its independence by profiting from its latest marketing campaign claiming Nestlé baby milk reduces diarrhoea.. The March 2010 decision by the Committee to invest came after Nestlés Vice President, Neils Christiansen, briefed Church officials in December 2009. On first glance the Baby Milk Action information included in the report for the Assembly has been taken from a briefing from 6 ...

From the information received from the AIDS Legal Network, it appears that exposing another person to or infecting another person, per se, is not a crime. However, there is a provision where sexual offenders can be compulsorily tested for HIV; where HIV is transmitted in the course of a sexual offence this can be used in sentencing proceedings.. From the information received, it appears that there are a lot of human rights and womens organisations that have advocated, ensuring that criminalisation of HIV transmission does not become part of the legal frame work.. As part of the legislative reform processes pertaining to sexual offences legislation (1999 - 2007), the South African Law Reform Commission and one of the draft bills, included a clause criminalising wilful HIV transmission. However, due to advocacy efforts and active engagement and participation by various stakeholders in the legislative reform processes, this clause was subsequently removed from the draft legislation.. In order to ...

The initiative now has 27 captains with an initial plan for 35, which will increase as the program grows.. "Decisions about our health are too important to be left to politicians and insurance companies. Its absolutely necessary that we understand what ...
By Lonnie Powers. Sargent Shriver, President Johnsons personal choice to lead the War on Poverty, was once asked which of the anti-poverty programs he thought was the most important. "My favorite is Head Start because it was my idea," he answered. "But I am proudest of Legal Services because I recognized that it had the greatest potential for changing the system under which peoples lives were being exploited.". Legal services, also known as civil legal aid, has indeed been a potent anti-poverty tool in two ways. First, through individual case work that enables poor people to gain access to the rights and benefits from state and federal service agencies, health care providers and schools to which they are entitled. Second, through large, class-action lawsuits and advocacy efforts that change laws and governmental policies that adversely - and overwhelmingly - affect poor people.. With the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty in 2014, we have been treated to numerous assessments of the ...

Second, we need some immediate actions to the matter. I do not understand why those who are involved in the game even when caught are left to enjoy their harvest with a token punishment? What does it cost the government to wipe out 100 entrusted and selfish business giants for the benefit of the populace? In China, the very country where these products are believed to come gave a death sentenced to whoever was found to sell poisoned milk for children!

Dear Barbara, This is a very interesting question! Here are some considerations I made in calculating the number of calories in a pint of blood. The strategy is to express the components of blood in terms of grams of protein, lipid and carbohydrate. Then convert the grams to calories. An alternative and more direct way of determining the number of calories in a donated pint of blood would be to dry it down (to remove the water), and then burn it in a calorimeter to calculate how much heat is generated from the blood. I can calculate a reasonable number for calories associated with the plasma (non-cellular portion) of the blood, but I can only make a rough approximation of the calories obtained from the red blood cells. 1. A blood donation usually is 400 to 495 ml (for calculations I will use 500 ml). 2. Assume an average hematocrit of 40% for a woman (40% red blood cells, 60% plasma by volume). 500 ml x 40% = 200 ml (plasma volume) *Plasma glucose: The average plasma glucose concentration is 90 ...

As a consumer you are protected by the Consumer Protection Act - however, in the event that you make the conscious decision to procure from unreliable sources, you are at fault and at risk of dubious material. The South African market is currently being flooded with cheap alternatives for galvanised coated steel as well as aluminium-zinc coated steel. The applications of these inferior materials are being used in various market sectors, especially the lower income sectors and RDP homes, and therefore leaving a bad name in the market for coated steel, as well as creating a very unhappy family unit as the investment in their home has now been seriously affected..

It has always been a good idea for investors to keep detailed records of all their financial transactions, including copies of statements, canceled checks, and order confirmations. Federal securities laws require brokers and other financial institutions to do the same. But while most laws have governed paper documents, new regulations that went into effect late last year are making it a requirement for financial services firms to record all customer phone calls as well.. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and other regional rulings, including those set by the Financial Conduct Authority in the United Kingdom, now require financial institutions to not only record all forms of relevant communications but also to make the recordings searchable, secure, and retrievable in a timely fashion. When questions arise, organizations will need to be able to quickly find specific information and reconstruct all interactions associated with any trade, regardless of how the ...
The public also will require assurances about the integrity of advice from a DHA. Consumer protection implies that the fundamental features of a DHA-the databases, data-exchange protocols, decision-support tools, and treatment recommendations-will have to be tested for accuracy, bias, and conflicts of interest, with periodic monitoring. As they blur boundaries between devices, treatments, and providers, DHA services will challenge traditional regulatory categories that govern professional services and may call for new regulatory approaches. For example, the integrity of the personnel involved in designing and deploying DHA services may need oversight.. Finally, steps may be required to ensure that all patients have a minimum level of access to digital and communication technologies. Otherwise, differences in access to DHA services could contribute to a widening of health disparities.. Overcoming Cultural Gaps. Perhaps the most profound barrier of all, however, is cultural.

Even though the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (Dodd-Frank Act) requirement on pay versus performance disclosure will not become effective for several months, the subject is expected to take center stage in the upcoming proxy season as universal say-on-pay votes force companies to address an issue at the core of the executive compensation controversy. The risks entailed in silence on the pay-for-performance equation may be amplified if peer companies generally address the point..

However we may wish to moan about things there is a simple truth - financial advice is given by Government mandate. This mandate extends through their (Gvts) view on appropriate product use, appropriate asset allocation, price and even extends to retro pricing products deeming old contracts unfair with scant regard to the cost to the product provider. All financial advisers are now the whipping boys of Govt and any advice or planning that goes off piste, or costs a semi decimal more than another or already existing solution, is advice given in peril. The obvious need for Govt to soft comfort the market with consumer protection in the shape of the Ombudsman, see the industry governed by poorly qualified, virtually illiterate individuals, shoe horning their target requirement outcomes into poorly manifested and rebuilt, historical client recollection. The only way to be an adviser now is to run the numbers and risk the complaints - it has to be done commercially. The absence of a back stop also ...

Since the enactment of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) in 1991, technological advances in the way people communicate have often outpaced the ability of the courts and the Federal Communications Commission to reconcile those advances with the TCPA. The proliferation of cell phones and other devices and the omnipresence of the Internet, unimaginable 25 years ago, have resulted in an avalanche of TCPA class actions. One emerging development in this realm is
