In those days Povinelli shared the zeitgeist - spread by Whitens and Byrnes work, and started by Nick Humphrey and Alison Jolly before them - that, since the most exacting and potentially treacherous environment faced by chimpanzees and other primates was not physical, but the social environment of their peers, they had evolved a form of social cognition very much like our own, in order to deal with it. This was further elaborated into a full-blown social brain hypothesis by Robin Dunbar, who related brain neocortex size to social group size throughout the primates and up to man. Povinellis early work reflects this optimism for the mental life of apes, but both ape-language and ape-cognition research was subjected to a cold douche of searching criticism during the 1990s, and misgivings set in regarding the effectiveness of the experiments that had been constructed to guage ape cognition. Now the worm has turned again, with a number of research groups emerging with bolder and bolder claims ...

NIGMS GO grant applications should be directly related to the topics below.. Community Resources. Creation, validation and dissemination of resources that benefit entire scientific communities (such as those using established or emerging model organisms) are key to accelerating the tempo of research. This grand opportunity solicits proposals to generate community research reagents or resources. A responsive application might propose, for example, the creation of mutant collections, generation of tagged proteins, creation of antibody panels or generation of genomics-based reagents. The resource must be created and validated within the two-year period of the grant, and a specific plan for maintenance and dissemination of the resources or reagents after that time must be included. Indications of the strength of support and priority from the targeted research community will be a required component of the application.

For its Recovery Act Signature Project, NHGRI selected the development of technologies that can sequence a human genome for $1,000 or less. NHGRI leadership thinks that truly inexpensive genomic sequencing will revolutionize health and medicine, and Recovery Act funding will accelerate the Institutes research program in this area.. The success of the Human Genome Project was made possible by significant reductions in DNA sequencing costs that were fueled in large part by tools, technologies and process improvements developed as a result of NHGRI funding. To continue its efforts to make sequencing a routine tool in both research and medicine, NHGRI subsequently launched two programs, in 2004, to further accelerate the development of sequencing technologies and reduce the cost of sequencing. The goal of the first program - to produce high-quality sequence of the amount of DNA found in a human genome for $100,000 - has already been achieved. Ultimately, NHGRIs vision is to cut the cost of ...

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) established a Hypocrisy Hall of Fame to list Republican Representatives who had voted against ARRA but who then sought or took credit for ARRA programs in their districts. As of September 2011, the DCCC was listing 128 House Republicans in this category.[88] Newsweek reported that many of the Republican legislators who publicly argued that the stimulus would not create jobs were writing letters seeking stimulus programs for their districts on the grounds that the spending would create jobs.[89]. The stimulus has been criticized as being too small. In July 2010, a group of 40 prominent economists issued a statement calling for expanded stimulus programs to reduce unemployment. They also challenged the view that the priority should be reducing the deficit: Making deficit reduction the first target, without addressing the chronic underlying deficiency of demand, is exactly the error of the 1930s.[90]. In July 2010, the White House Council ...

By Eric Sauter. A scientist from The Scripps Research Institutes Florida campus has been awarded a pair of research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) totaling just over $1.4 million to pursue drug discovery work in both Alzheimers disease and alcoholism. The grants have gone to Claes Wahlestedt, who is professor and director of Neuroscience Discovery at Scripps Florida. The first grant, which will fund the study of non-coding RNA modulators in Alzheimers disease, is for approximately $924,000 over two years; the other award, about $484,000 for one year, will be used to study and develop novel ligands for a specific receptor that plays a role in alcohol dependence. The studies are being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the economic stimulus package passed by the Congress in February. To date about 100 Scripps Research Institute investigators in California and Florida have won supplemental grants from the NIH under the Recovery and Reinvestment Act. ...

The report offers several policy recommendations to address these concerns, calling on Congress to modernize the Community Reinvestment Act to cover fintech lenders, and states to act quickly. The report outlines how states like California can enact state-level regulations, including requiring increased lending transparency through the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation, as well as passing a state version of the Community Reinvestment Act. In Illinois, the most recent state to pass a state-level CRA, advocates partnered with legislators to advance a racial equity slate that included these crucial regulations for nonbank lenders. State and federal regulations need a drastic overhaul to keep up with these trends and avoid another financial crisis caused by predatory mortgage lending, said Debra Gore-Mann, President and CEO of The Greenlining Institute. These institutions are targeting communities that have been historically denied access to financial products and services from ...

The Affordable Care Act is a once-in-a-generation change to the U.S. health system. It guarantees access to health care for all Americans, creates new incentives to change clinical practice to foster better coordination and quality, gives physicians more information to make them better clinicians and patients more information to make them more value-conscious consumers, and changes the payment system to reward value. The Act and the health information technology provisions in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act remove many barriers to delivering high-quality care, such as unnecessary administrative complexity, inaccessible clinical data, and insufficient access to primary care and allied health providers.. We hope that physicians will embrace the opportunities created by the Affordable Care Act that will enable them to provide better care for their patients and lead the U.S. health system in a more positive direction. To fully realize the benefits of the Affordable Care Act for their ...
submitted by Paul McKean]. My entry point into the Digital Humanities was through a digital archive of data and data visualizations that was created by the Obama administration in order to support the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Recovery.gov invites citizens, journalists, and transparency activists to participate in interactive data visualizations that chart the progress of the legislation and support the administrations claims of transparency and accountability. By participating in the archiving and presentation of government data on the site, the users are asked to see the policy at work across the country.. The Digital Humanities can help us critically engage the rhetoric of this digital archive as well as similar projects ( http://www.data.gov/) that attempt to make government statistical systems transparent to citizens. Furthermore, DH invites us to engage the legibility of data visualization, the politics of seeing they invoke, and the ways in which government ...

A brief history of epilepsy EMR genomics. Blog posts give me the chance to tell the story behind a research study. When I started working in the US in 2014, I was impressed by the ubiquity and richness of the electronic medical records (EMR). Yes, institutions in Europe are slowly transitioning, but most relevant care is often documented outside of the EMR. In the US, the widespread adoption of EMR was mandated by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. By the time I started working in the US, our entire hospital was running on a single EMR platform. However, I wasnt really thinking about the EMR as a research tool until 2016 when I almost accidentally generated a plot that showed all the clinical diagnoses of a single patient with epilepsy across two decades. Even though each diagnosis by itself did not reveal all that much, the history over time generated a pattern that was intuitive for a clinician - I was looking at the longitudinal disease history of a patient with ...
In the 20th Century, those records were written by hand and paper copies were generally stored on or offsite, unless required for a hospitalization, doctor visit or research. Sharing patient information with even one consultant or payer typically meant long hours at the copying machine to create thick envelopes filled with data that could take a substantial amount of time to sort; sharing only pertinent information with multiple parties was next to impossible.. Computers and the internet heralded the information age and electronic health records (EHR), which allowed the mass sharing and analysis of data in an instant and without cumbersome and costly paper. In 2004, President George W. Bush created the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC), which now synchronizes HIT in the U.S. healthcare sector. Passed as part of the larger American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act created incentives to use health care ...

Health care is indisputably one of the most data-intensive industries in the U.S., yet modern dissemination and control of patient data consistently lags behind other industries such as banking, airlines, insurance and retail.[IMGCAP(1)]The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act within the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 attempts to rectify this, providing some $36 billion to promote the use of interoperable, certified health information technologies. The announcement last week by Vice President Joseph Biden and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced that $1.2 billion in ARRA funding via two grant programs is an additional step in this direction. Historically, savings estimates from these moves have been the subject of wild speculation. Iron Mountain Inc., which provides information protection and storage services to one-third of the U.S. market (more than 2,000 hospitals in 43 states), takes a different view: Cost efficiencies ...

I just wanted anyones opinion on if I was in the wrong here, and what any of you guys would have done in this situation. So my wife is quite liberal and Im more on the conservative side, and shes about 3 months pregnant. She cant work right now, so Ive been forced to support her as of late. The thing is that about a week ago she started asking me if she could borrow $400, and being pretty secretive about the reason why. I soon found out that $400 was the average cost of a back alley abortion, which is ridiculous considering that she knows how vehemently pro-life I am. After refusing to give her the money and the countless hours of arguing that ensued, I ended up making a comment about how if she wanted to do something liberal with $400, she should take advantage of Obummers American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, so that instead of murdering our kid, he can have satellite internet at a smashing price! (I linked it so you can actually see its about $400 in taxpayer money that our ...
On Tuesday, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released a report on the estimated impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (a.k.a.-Obamas $787 billion fiscal stimulus) The report provides conclusive evidence that the stimulus did exactly what it was designed to do and helped to avert another Great Depression. Heres a summary: It raised real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) by between 1.7 per cent and 4.5 per cent;. Lowered the unemployment rate by between 0.7 percentage points and 1.8 percentage points;. Increased the number of people employed by between 1.4 million and 3.3 million; Increased the number of full-time-equivalent jobs by 2.0 million to 4.8 million compared with what would have occurred otherwise.. Naturally, the Republican leadership is in a frenzy over the report and trying desperately to underplay its conclusions. Thats why House minority leader John Boehner launched a counterattack earlier this week claiming that the stimulus has ...
Ever since the governments American Recovery and Reinvestment Act required all public and private health care providers and other eligible professionals to adopt electronic medical records (EMR) by January 1, 2014, there has been a greater demand for workers who can help bridge the gap between clinical and IT in health informatics jobs.
President Obama has said, It is simply unacceptable for individuals, children, families, and our nations veterans to be faced with homelessness in this country.. On February 17, 2009, he signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a nearly $800 billion stimulus package of temporary programs aimed to alleviate the recessions negative effects. The package included a three-year, $1.5 billion program called the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP).. Administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HPRP targeted two populations: people who without assistance were at risk of losing their current housing (homelessness prevention), and people experiencing homelessness who needed assistance to obtain and then retain housing (rapid re-housing).. Communities could use HPRP funding for financial assistance, including rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, moving costs, or hotel/motel vouchers, and for housing ...

The change will be retroactive to January 1, 2012, so workers whose employers implement this program will be able to receive tax benefits for any passes they purchased through the program last year. Unfortunately, the benefit expires December 31, 2013. This isnt the first time that the transit commuter benefit will expire while the parking benefit remains. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA 2009, also known as the stimulus) raised the transit commuter benefit from $120 to $230 per month, but that expired on December 31, 2011. The parking benefit remained at $230 per month.. The current surface transportation bill, MAP-21, signed into law on July 6, 2012, raised the transit commuter benefit a paltry $5 to $125 while raising the parking benefit to $240. The transit commuter benefit is now $240. The retroactive provision will benefit Metra riders who purchased passes that were greater than $125 each month in 2012, which included anyone who traveled between zones A (downtown) and E ...

COBRA continuing coverage is usually paid for by the covered individual. That includes both their share and the employers share (i.e., the entire premium). People can pick and choose which coverages to keep and who to cover (themselves or dependents), which could vary the cost.. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Congress is considering expanded COBRA options. A bill drafted by the House of Representatives proposes covering furloughed individuals in addition to those who were laid off. In its current form, the drafted legislation would also cover up to 100 percent of the premium. COBRA law currently allows up to 18 months of continuing coverage, and the proposed legislation could keep that time frame or adjust it. If approved, it would be significantly more than the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). ARRA was passed during the 2009 recession and covered 65 percent of COBRA premiums for up to 15 months.. ...
