first_imgGo back to the enewsletterRocky Mountaineer is set to add seven newly built GoldLeaf Service rail cars on its Western Canadian rail routes for the 2019 season. The world’s largest privately owned luxury train company will add four rail cars to its fleet in April, with three additional cars coming later in the season. The bi-level rail cars feature oversized glass-dome windows and a separate dining area for guests travelling through the Canadian Rockies.To meet the growing demand from travellers worldwide, Rocky Mountaineer partnered with the Swiss rail car company Stadler to engineer and then build the new equipment at its facilities in Germany, keeping guest comfort and experience at the forefront throughout. This project marked the largest capital investment in Rocky Mountaineer’s history. The remaining three cars will join the fleet in 2020, bringing the company’s total to 26 bi-level GoldLeaf rail cars and 16 single-level SilverLeaf rail cars to mark Rocky Mountaineer’s 30th anniversary as a luxury tourist company.Photo credit: Vincent L Chan“These new GoldLeaf rail cars will allow us to welcome even more guests on board our trains and offer increased availability across our most popular dates and routes,” said Steve Sammut, President and Chief Executive Officer, Rocky Mountaineer. “We were intentional in designing these new cars to offer the same exemplary guest comfort across the entire fleet, while also making numerous engineering enhancements behind the scenes that reflect our goal of constantly enhancing both the experience and efficiency of our service.”The new GoldLeaf rail cars feature:Dimmable domed windows: The upper-level windows use a suspended particle device layer, which can be dimmed to moderate the intensity of incoming sunlight. This is similar technology to what is used in luxury yachts and business jets.Redesigned galley kitchens: The galleys feature upgraded ovens and stovetops, electrical grills, eco-friendly dishwashers, and optimal preparation spaces for meal preparation.Custom-designed seats: The heated composite-leather seats recline without impacting the guest seated behind and can spin 180 degrees to create more social seating.Enhanced ride quality: The cars feature other technical features that enhance the overall guest experience, including improved suspension design.Each GoldLeaf rail car seats 72 guests. The new cars will be added to the trains travelling on two of Rocky Mountaineer’s routes: First Passage to the West, a two-day rail journey between Vancouver and Lake Louise or Banff; and Journey through the Clouds, a two-day rail journey between Vancouver and Jasper.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

NY Gov Orders Homeless People Forcibly Removed When Weather Turns Cold

first_imgShare18TweetShare4Email22 SharesJanuary 3, 2016; New York TimesYesterday, calling it a “state-level New Year’s resolution,” New York’s Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed an executive order requiring local governments across New York State to remove homeless people from the streets when temperatures go below freezing with wind chill factored in—even if it has to be done by force, otherwise known as involuntary placement.Cuomo says that the measure is aimed at protecting homeless people from “hypothermia and possible death,” saying, “It’s about love. It’s about compassion. It’s about helping one another and basic human decency.”New York City, with a rate of homelessness 86 percent higher than ten years ago, has a standing policy named Code Blue that increases outreach and eases intakes during very cold periods. The city can also use a state mental hygiene law to take people to a hospital for mental health evaluation if they seem to be in imminent danger. Estimates suggest that 3,000–4,000 stay on the street rather than going to shelters. Mayor Bill de Blasio is resisting the more aggressive ruling, which is similar to one Mayor Edward I. Koch tried but failed to pass in the ’80s.The city’s press secretary, Karen Hinton, said in a statement, that the order requires Cuomo to pass state law. The measure clearly raises major civil rights and practical concerns. Hinton added, “This executive order adds no legal or financial resources to New York City’s programs to assist the homeless, and merely requires all New York State localities follow many of the same requirements as New York City to shelter families and individuals in need in freezing temperatures.”“This is a state law,” Mr. Cuomo told CBS in urging that the law be implemented without regard for legal consequences. “This is the interpretation of the state law. If there is any challenge to the law, I will defend it.”This does not appear to be some mere philosophical difference, in case you were wondering, but part of a long simmering feud about how to address homelessness. In November, de Blasio announced an investment of $2.6 billion for 15,000 units of supportive housing for homeless populations. Cuomo and the state was nowhere to be seen in that particular effort, a fact noted by Capital New York, observing that the lack of cooperation breaks with a 25-year history of joint city-state supportive housing agreements—initiated, ironically, by Mario Cuomo, the governor’s father, with then-mayor David Dinkins.Mary Brosnahan, president and CEO of the Coalition for the Homeless, made a statement, meant to bring Cuomo into the fold, when de Blasio went ahead without the state’s involvement.“Gov. Cuomo, every day that goes by is another step closer into the most bitter and dangerous days of the winter,” Brosnahan said. “So please, from the bottom of our hearts, we need you to step up.”Perhaps this cowboy stunt is the governor’s version of stepping up, but it is ugly in context. The most recent city-state supportive housing agreement reached in 2005 under Gov. George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg is nearing its conclusion, and advocacy groups have been warning that a major housing shortage for the homeless and mentally ill will open up within the next year or so if a new agreement is not reached quickly.—Ruth McCambridgeShare18TweetShare4Email22 Shareslast_img read more

In This Issue   Currencies except the euro pos

first_imgIn This Issue. *  Currencies except the euro post gains. *  RBI advisors chooses the wrong words. *  Russia makes largest one-month Gold purchase for them. *  Fisher sticks to his guns. And Now. Today’s A Pfennig For Your Thoughts. China’s 3rd QTR GDP Shrinks. Good Day!.. And a Tom Terrific Tuesday to you! I’m feeling much better today, so here I am back in the saddle at the office. The Eagles are playing: My Old ’55 on the IPod, and like the Eagles, I too am riding with Lady Luck. The Happy Song is playing now, and I’ve said this before, but if you’re in a bad mood when that song comes on, you’ll soon change moods! Not that I’m in a bad mood or anything. Just kind of strange this morning. Well, the BIG NEWS overnight was the Chinese 3rd QTR GDP report that printed at +7.3%, down from the 7.5% in the 2nd QTR. But, and this is a Big BUT so I’ll treat it as such. BUT, the 7.3% 3rd QTR print, was better than the forecasts.. And if there’s something we’ve all learned over the years together, is that sometimes / most times, beating the expectations is the most important thing. And so it was with the Chinese renminbi/ yuan overnight, as it was allowed to appreciate again. Remember, that China’s target for 2014 GDP is 7.5%…  And the thing I want to point out here is that the Chinese Gov’t has said that the 7.5% figure was a “soft target”. So, any downside miss that’s near 7.5% would be tolerated by the Chinese Gov’t. And I think that with them allowing an appreciation of the renminbi / yuan overnight, that they are saying just that! So. That’s the Big News overnight. Elsewhere, the currencies and metals seem to have some control over the dollar. The Aussie dollar (A$) has moved back over 88-cents , and kiwi is within spittin’ distance of 80-cents again. These moves higher won’t make the Central Bank Governors of the Reserves Bank of Australia (RBA) and New Zealand (RBNZ), very happy, for it was just two weeks ago, that each respective Central Bank Gov. deep sixed their currencies, in hopes of promoting growth. The RBA will get to view what a cheaper currency does to their CPI (consumer inflation) numbers today. Recall that in August, Aussie CPI was +2.3%, which is over the 2% target of the RBA, and since then the A$ has been deep sixed. So, this report should be quite interesting, eh? On a sidebar this morning. The Bloomberg says that the Total Oil CEO, you know the one that called for an end to the petrodollar dominance, died overnight in a freak airplane crash in Moscow. This is the stuff of conspiracy crazies, like me, but I have to leave it at that, for I could type out my whole message and have it nixed, so I won’t go there. But if you’re ever on the Butler Patio. The one currency that you would think would be participating in a soft dollar market, the euro, is lagging this morning, and in fact it’s in the red! Huh? Why yes, Virginia, the euro can be soft when the dollar is getting sold VS other currencies. I have to say that while I don’t like the European Central Bank (ECB) and their insistence in joining the U.S., Japan and U.K. in interfering in their respective economies, I do like that they have decided to be open about the whole thing. The ECB said that they will print a portfolio statement each week, so that everyone can see what they’ve bought. No need to be a member of any Central Bank’s data bank to see this, the ECB will print it and send it to the markets each week. Of course, I’m no fan of Central Bank Interference. For, in most cases, the respective country has to print money to interfere.  Not the Chinese, but the U.S. Japan, and U.K. did. Speaking of printing money. Which as you know doesn’t really actually happen any longer, as it’s all digits in a computer. But for GP I like to say printing money. Well, after 6 years of doing this, here in the U.S. what do we have to show for it? A strong stock market, that’s beginning to show its true colors as the money printing is taken away, and market participants realize that the U.S. economy never caught up with the stock market.  I only talk about the stock market here to illustrate the money printing part, please don’t mistake me for someone that knows stocks! I do know the economy, probably better than most economists. As Dizzy Dean used to say, “It’s not bragging if you can do it”!  This economy has been a house of cards from the beginning, and I told you that. Built on stimulus after stimulus, money printing, after money printing, and liquidity coming out our ears. The economy became addicted to stimulus, money printing and liquidity. And then one day, just like that old dragon Puff, he sadly slipped into his cave. And so too will the economy once the Spinning Wheel comes to a stop on stimulus, money printing, and liquidity. And oh, I almost forgot, ZIRP. (zero interest rate policy) Speaking of ZIRP. I read a short piece on the Bloomberg this morning, that said that traders were pushing back their calls of rate hikes, and that has the dollar on the run this morning. Hmmm.  I wonder where they got that idea? Pfennig Readers? Probably! HA! The Brazilian real continues to be pushed and shoved around by the upcoming election that will take place this coming Sunday. The polls show the race to be very tight. like Tupperware. (my good, close, friends are laughing right now)  The two opponents couldn’t be more different and that gives the people of Brazil a clear decision as to who they want running their country. A candidate that has pushed the economy to the brink of no return, and wants another turn at bat, or a candidate that is seeking an end to Gov’t intervention. Well, there are more deciders here, but, these are the two major ones. I know which candidates the markets like. and it isn’t the one that has intervened and brought the economy to its knees. In India overnight, a Reserve Bank of India (RBI) advisor mentioned that with the price of Oil dropping, the pressures on inflation have dropped, thus giving the RBI the ability to make a rate cut.  And the rupee got sold! Sure all that stuff the advisor talked about is true, but how sure is he about how long this dip in Oil prices might last? Is it the new price of Oil, or is it just another dip like we’ve seen in the past 8 years? I think the RBI, the advisor, and the rupee would have been better served to just add a couple of words to his report. Like “if” the price of Oil remains low, it “could” reduce the inflation pressures, and “a rate cut could be discussed”.  Do they need a new writer at the RBI? I’m available, but I won’t move to India. Well, Gold was up about $5 when I came in, and now it is barely holding on to a gain, and Silver has gone into the red this morning. If traders are pushing their calls for a rate hike back, like I said above, wouldn’t that bring about a metals rally? Of course it would! If there were no manipulators.  And then we have news that Russia’s Central Bank purchased 1.2 Million ounces of Gold in September. If you were lucky enough to see me talk on the video screen in Panama last month, you know how I went through the central Banks in Asia and the Middle East and talked about their increases of Gold reserves. Russia was a main player in the roster of countries raising their Gold reserves, so to see them continue to add makes me smile. And 1.2 Million Troy Ounces was the largest one-month purchase Russia has ever made, and brings their total to 37 Million Troy Ounces. So, in August, Russia had increased their reserves in Gold to 9% of the total reserves, so it’s easy to assume that their total reserves in Gold are now over 10% of the total reserves!  I still say that Russia is following China’s lead on Gold accumulation, so that they too can one day place a backing of some sort of Gold to their currency. Then the two Countries that are bound and determined to remove the dollar from the reserve status, will have the most attractive currencies in the world, backed with Gold.  Write this down in your journal, and then one day, you can refer back to it, and say. “By George, that Chuck sure knew what he was talking about!” Speaking of making me smile. That GEICO commercial with Ickey Woods getting excited having his number called is hilarious! It was just on one of our TV’s here, and I don’t even have the sound on, but know what he’s saying and started laughing out loud!  Now that’s funny! As I’ve said a few times recently, the fall in Oil prices sure has hurt the petro-currencies like Norway, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and Canada, but the currency that seems to take it the worst is the Norwegian krone. Norway had seen falling Oil revenues before the price of Oil began to slide, so this Oil price slide has really negatively affected the krone.. Norway still has the deep pockets it will need to navigate through this, so I wouldn’t get too upset with this news. The U.S. Data Cupboard is still pretty much barren, with only some Existing Home Sales data later this morning to print. As I told you yesterday, before my battery power ran out,  the stupid CPI will print on Wednesday. It’s difficult to tell if the Fed members actually use this data or not. I sure hope they don’t! Before I head to the Big Finish today. I don’t want anyone to think all I do is get tough with the Fed. I wanted to take a minute here, to point out that Fed member Fisher, who is one of the hawks on the FOMC, made comments yesterday that let everyone know where he stands on Quantitative Easing, and now the thought that the Fed could be considering extending it. Fisher hasn’t changed his outlook that there’s no reason now to not end QE.   And for that stance, I have to give him credit. He made a statement in the past, and he’s sticking to it, no matter what is presented in front of him. I like that! So, Fisher gets a Gold Star today. For What It’s Worth. Today’s piece is a little different and I found it on MarketWatch.com it’s about doing better. The title is: If Monday morning is so bad, here’s what you can do about it.  And is written by Stewart Friedman. enjoy. Work/life balance” is a misguided metaphor for grasping the relationship between work and the rest of life. And the idea that work competes with life ignores the more nuanced reality of our humanity. It ignores that life is the interaction of the four domains of work, home, community, and the private self. Of course, you can’t have it all – complete success in all corners of your life, all at the same time. No one can. But even though it can seem impossible to bring these four domains into greater alignment, it doesn’t have to be. Three guiding principles: Be real; be whole, be innovative. The most successful people harness the passions and powers of the various parts of their lives, bringing them together to achieve what I call “four-way wins” – actions that result in life being better in all four domains. They make it their business to be conscious of what and who matters most. Their actions flow from their values. They strive to do what they can to make things better for the people who depend on them and on whom they depend. You can achieve a kind of integration that will, in turn, help you have the impact you want to have and lead a life in which you stay true to yourself, serve others, and grow as a person. This integration is the key to leading a meaningful life – the life you want. It starts with three guiding principles: Be real; be whole, be innovative. But what does that mean? To be real is to act with authenticity by clarifying what’s important to you. It’s your answer to this basic question: What matters most to me? To be whole is to act with integrity by recognizing how the different parts of your life affect each other. This means identifying who matters most to you at work, at home, and in the community; understanding what you need from each other; and seeing whether and how these needs mesh. To be innovative is to act with creativity by experimenting with how things get done in ways that are good for you and for the people around you – taking realistic steps aimed at scoring four-way wins. These principles come alive in skills you can practice every day.” -Stewart Friedman Chuck again. I know, I know that was quite long, but I thought it was very good. and something we all could take something from and use it in our lives.  and then maybe you think it’s all BS. Oh well, I can’t please all the people all the time. To recap. The currencies, except for the euro, seem to have some bias over the dollar this morning. The A$ is back over 88-cents, and kiwi is within spittin’ distance of 80-cents again. Chinese 3rd QTR GDP was the BIG NEWS overnight, and printed a +7.3% growth figure, down from the 2nd QTR’s 7.5% gain, but it beat the expectations, and that’s what counts these days, eh? Russia purchases it’s largest one-month amount of Gold in September, and a RBI advisor could use some help choosing the right words, and Chuck has offered his services.. Currencies today 10/21/14. American Style: A$ .8810, kiwi .7990, C$ .8885, euro 1.2750, sterling 1.6155, Swiss $1.0565, .

Well, yesterday was quite the blur for me, as I slept most of the day, but when I woke up, I felt alive again! I even fixed myself a spaghetti dinner. I had 4 pots or pans on the oven cooking away, bread in the oven, and it was all just for me. I could have invited neighbors or my kids to dinner, but. Thought that they probably already had dinner plans. So, I sat down, ate, and then had a BIG mess to clean up! UGH! That’s why I prefer to go out to eat, there’s no mess for me to clean up! Well, the World Series begins tonight. I’ve always been a National League guy, no matter who’s playing I root for the National League team. But this year, that might change, as the other team from Missouri, is the American League Champion, the K.C. Royals. It’s just that I can’t get past that 1985 Don Denkinger debacle. Never have, never will. So, I guess I’ll just not watch it! Yeah, that’s the ticket! I just finished reading my friend, Jim Powell’s latest letter. Jim does such a great job of summarizing things. And we put to bed the November Review & Focus the other day, the cutoff gets earlier in the month and earlier in the month every year. pretty soon, I’ll be putting the next month’s R&F to bed on the 1st of the preceding month! HA!  Oh well, it is what it is. and I carry on despite the requirements!  And, so. it’s time for me to get out of your hair for today, and I hope you have a Tom Terrific Tuesday!

The Department for Work and Pensions is considerin

first_imgThe Department for Work and Pensions is considering forcing all sick and disabled people on out-of-work disability benefits to take part in “mandatory” activity, its new green paper has revealed.The suggestion of compulsory activity is revealed in a single line of the 92-page work, health and disability green paper, published this week.Such a change would mean that all people on out-of-work disability benefits – even those who are terminally-ill or have the very highest support needs – would have to stay in regular touch with their local jobcentre or risk having their benefits sanctioned.The measure would affect those in the support group of employment and support allowance (ESA) – and the equivalent group in the new universal credit – a group which is currently not expected to carry out any work-related activity at all.The green paper, Improving Lives, says ministers “could consider implementing a ‘keep-in-touch’ discussion with work coaches” for people in the support group, which “could provide an opportunity for work coaches to offer appropriate support tailored to the individual’s current circumstances” and “could be explored as a voluntary or mandatory requirement”.It comes only a month after the new work and pensions secretary, Damian Green, secured widespread praise for announcing an end to repeat assessments for those on ESA with “the most severe, lifetime conditions”.He said then that the government would “sweep away unnecessary stress and bureaucracy which weigh them down” and that “if someone has a disease which can only get worse, making them turn up for repeated appointments to claim what they need is pointless bureaucratic nonsense”.Now Green (pictured, announcing some details of the green paper to MPs) appears to have decided that the same group of people should be forced into repeated contact with a “work coach”, or lose some of their benefits.Asked about this inconsistency, a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) spokeswoman did not deny the possibility of mandatory activity for all those in the support group.She said: “We recognise that people in the support group have limited capability for work related activity – but that does not necessarily mean they should be left without any support at all.“We believe it is important to give claimants the opportunity to take up the offer of personalised and tailored support if it is appropriate for them, regardless of what group they are placed in following the WCA.”The green paper’s repeated emphasis that the government wants to “reinforce work as a health outcome” is also likely to alarm many disabled campaigners and healthcare professionals.It says the government will increase the number of job advisers in healthcare settings and ensure that “all health professionals are sufficiently trained and confident to have work-related conversations” with patients.It also warns that ministers “want to make the benefits of work an ingrained part of the training and professional approach of the health and social care workforce”.Asked whether DWP accepted that many disabled people and health professionals believe that it is dangerous and unethical to view employment as a health outcome, particularly for people in mental distress, a spokeswoman said that “evidence shows that being in the right work is good for health and that being out of work can have a detrimental effect on health”.She said that the government’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapies mental health treatment programme was “voluntary at every stage and that includes the employment support offer within the programme”.There may also be concerns about new mandatory “health and work conversations” in which work coaches will use “specially designed techniques” to “help” some ESA claimants “identify their health and work goals, draw out their strengths, make realistic plans, and build resilience and motivation”.The green paper claims that these conversations were “co-designed with disabled people’s organisations and occupational health professionals and practitioners and the Behavioural Insights Team [the controversial ‘Nudge Unit’, which is part-owned by the Cabinet Office]”.There has so far been little or no analysis of the green paper in the mainstream media or from politicians, with most of the coverage and comment occurring before it was published and so based on extracts offered by DWP.Much of that media coverage repeated Green’s claim that the government would provide more “personalised” employment support for disabled people.But the green paper provides little evidence of real personalised support.Measures likely to be widely welcomed include plans to remove the 12-month time limit on permitted work for those in the ESA work-related activity group (WRAG), and the possibility of funding for some local peer support groups.The green paper suggests that those placed in the WRAG will be allocated employment support places in either the new Work and Health Programme or the specialist Work Choice programme, while DWP will expand peer support job clubs – whose effectiveness was backed in research earlier this year by Disability Rights UK and The Work Foundation – to 71 Jobcentre Plus areas with high numbers of ESA claimants.Ministers will also test a voluntary, supported work experience programme for young disabled people, and increase funding for Access to Work’s mental health support service.The DWP spokeswoman said the personalised support “includes a range of new interventions and initiatives, [and] is designed to provide more tailored support which work coaches will offer” to disabled claimants.There was widespread media coverage of Green’s pledge to reform the work capability assessment (WCA), the controversial eligibility test for ESA which has been implicated in hundreds – and possibly thousands – of deaths of disabled people, and in causing significant harm and distress to tens of thousands of others.But the green paper suggests little reform of the assessment process itself, although ministers say they would introduce a separate process for deciding what kind of employment support an ESA claimant should be signposted to.It does suggest that the WCA process should be able to draw on information “from the NHS, the adult social care system or through other benefit applications” if this is “appropriate and relevant”.And it suggests that there could be “a more appropriate process” for the “small proportion” of ESA claimants with the highest support needs, which could include “a simpler assessment process”.Asked about the WCA reform plans, a DWP spokeswoman said there had been five independent reviews of the WCA, which had made more than 100 recommendations, “the vast majority of which we have accepted”, while DWP was now “consulting on a new approach to deciding entitlement to financial employment support”.Questions are likely to be asked about the green paper’s pledge to introduce an extra 300 disability employment advisers (DEAs) to jobcentres, increasing the total number to 500.The green paper fails to point out that, as recently as January 2014, there were 900 DEAs spread across the country’s 719 jobcentres, before hundreds were removed by ministers.As recently as March, the previous – short-lived – work and pensions secretary, Stephen Crabb, promised to recruit an extra 500 DEAs.Asked to confirm these figures, a DWP spokeswoman would only repeat that there will be an extra 300 DEAs.In addition, DWP will recruit about 200 “community partners”, who will have “personal and professional experience of disability”, with many of them apparently to be seconded from disabled people’s organisations.These community partners will work with Jobcentre Plus staff to “provide valuable first-hand insight into the issues individuals with a health condition or disability face in securing and sustaining employment”, and will draw on their local knowledge.Questions may also be asked about the green paper’s refusal to provide any end date for the repeated ministerial pledge to halve the disability employment gap.Asked if there was any target date, the DWP spokeswoman declined to provide one, but said the government was “committed to halving the disability employment gap” and had “helped nearly 500,000 more disabled people into employment over the past three years”.There will be widespread concern at the statement in the green paper that ministers believe there should be a greater role for income protection insurance policies, which employers can take out privately to help address the risks and impact of ill-health among their employees.Many disabled activists have grown increasingly concerned at the influence of at least one provider of such policies, which has been blamed for undermining the system of out-of-work disability benefits.In September, a book by disabled researcher Mo Stewart detailed the influence of the US insurance giant Unum over successive UK governments, and how it had undermined the social security system in order to boost the market for its own income protection policies.And there is likely to be frustration that, yet again, there is a strong focus on encouraging employers to be more “disability confident” – with a suggestion of offering them “financial or other incentives” to employ disabled people – but no mention of any measures to force them to implement their Equality Act duties on employing disabled people.A DWP spokeswoman told DNS: “Businesses are required to fulfil their legal obligations under the Equality Act.“As part of the consultation, we ask what the expectation should be on employers to recruit and retain disabled people and those with long-term health conditions.”Meanwhile, there is confusion about whether ministers plan to scrap Work Choice, the specialist employment programme for disabled people, as was announced in last November’s spending review.The green paper suggests instead that places on Work Choice will still be offered to ESA claimants from 2017.The DWP spokeswoman said that the “Work Programme and Work Choice have been successful in supporting participants into work, but the current economic context demands a new approach” through a new Work and Health Programme, but by 11am today (Thursday) she had failed to clarify whether Work Choice will eventually be scrapped.Help for those who are furthest from the job market will still be available through the Specialist Employability Support programme, according to the green paper, with the possibility of more places on the scheme for ESA WRAG claimants.The green paper also promises to “open up apprenticeships” to young people with learning difficulties, by making “adjustments” to English and maths requirements, while it will work with social enterprises and disabled entrepreneurs to set up apprenticeships “specifically for young disabled people”.A consultation on the green paper will run until 17 February 2017, and among the ways to comment are via an online survey and by emailing workandhealth@dwp.gsi.gov.uklast_img read more

US Chain Restaurants Will Be Required to Disclose Calorie Counts on Menus

first_img Add to Queue Next Article Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel. The U.S. government will publish sweeping new rules on Tuesday requiring chain restaurants and large vending machine operators to disclose calorie counts on menus to make people more aware of the risks of obesity posed by fatty, sugary foods.”Obesity is a national epidemic that affects millions of Americans,” Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Margaret Hamburg told reporters on a conference call on Monday.”Strikingly, Americans eat and drink about a third of their calories away from home.”The FDA’s new rules, which are part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, set a national standard for restaurant chains with 20 or more outlets and will pre-empt the patchwork of state laws.Under the rules, calories must be displayed on all menus and menu boards. Other nutritional information – including calories from fat, cholesterol, sugars and protein – must be made available in writing upon request.The new calorie rule covers meals at sit-down restaurants, take-out food, bakery items, ice cream from an ice-cream store and pizza, which will be labelled by the slice and whole pie. Seasonal menu items, such as a Thanksgiving dinner, daily specials and standard condiments will be exempt.The final rule, unlike a 2011 proposal, includes movie theaters, amusement parks and alcoholic beverages served in restaurants, but not drinks mixed or served at a bar.Restaurants have one year and vending machine operators have two years to comply with the new rules following publication in the Federal Register.Panera Bread Co in 2010 became the first company to voluntarily display calorie information at all its cafes nationwide. Others, including McDonald’s Corp and Starbucks Corp, followed suit.The agency said it amended its proposals after considering more than 1,100 comments from industry, public health advocates and consumers.It narrowed the scope to clearly focus on restaurant-type food. Still, there are nuances: Foods such as deli meat bought at a grocery store counter will be excluded. But the rules will apply to food eaten in grocery stores, such as meals purchased at in-house cafes.Hamburg acknowledged that calorie counts for pizza slices and many other foods made on the premises will vary. Restaurants may draw on databases, cookbooks and food package labels to calculate calories.The restaurant industry has supported a national standard for years and welcomed the changes.”We believe that the Food and Drug Administration has positively addressed the areas of greatest concern,” said Dawn Sweeney, chief executive of the National Restaurant Association, which represents 990,000 restaurant and food-service outlets.Not all industry groups were satisfied.”We are disappointed that the FDA’s final rules will capture grocery stores, and impose such a large and costly regulatory burden on our members,” said Peter Larkin, president and CEO of the National Grocers Association.National Automatic Merchandising Association, representing the food and refreshment vending industry, said it will “reserve judgment” on the impact on the industry, but said that two years was insufficient “implementation time”, especially for small businesses.The rules aim to close a gap in the 1990 Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, which established nutrition labeling on most foods, but not restaurant or other ready-to-eat foods.Katie Bengston, Panera’s nutrition manager, said menu labelling has not affected its business: “We did not notice a jump in sales from higher calorie items to lower calorie items.”(Reporting by Toni Clarke in Washington; Editing by G Crosse and Richard Chang and Simon Cameron-Moore) Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business This story originally appeared on Reuters –shares 3 min read Reuters November 25, 2014 Regulations U.S. Chain Restaurants Will Be Required to Disclose Calorie Counts on Menus Register Now »last_img read more

New method could lead to more personalized treatment of advanced prostate cancer

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)May 3 2019Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have identified blood-based biomarkers that may determine which patients will benefit from continued hormonal therapy for advanced prostate cancer. The results are published in the journal JAMA Oncology. The researchers envision that this discovery may eventually result in a test that contributes to a more personalized treatment of the disease.Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer in Sweden. Approximately one in four will be diagnosed with or progress to metastatic prostate cancer. Initial systemic hormonal treatment works well for most patients with metastatic prostate cancer. But over time, the tumor develops resistance, resulting in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC).A continued hormonal treatment for the mCRPC condition with drugs such as Zytiga (abiraterone acetate) and Xtandi (enzalutamide) provides additional clinical benefit, however not all patients respond to these treatments. Thus, in order to avoid unnecessary side effects and pharmaceutical expenses, it is necessary to identify those men who will benefit from the medicines before treatment is started.This problem is now closer to being resolved through new results by researchers at Karolinska Institutet.”Our method can identify patients who are likely to have a poor outcome to these treatments and therefore should be offered other alternatives, if available,” says lead author Bram De Laere, postdoc at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics.The researchers’ methodology is based on an analysis of prognostic biomarkers, with known associations with therapy resistance, in the blood of patients with mCRPC.In prostate cancer, treatment resistance can be caused by changes in genes such as the androgen receptor (AR) and a gene called TP53. Most often, these resistance markers have been studied on a one by one basis, which has led to conflicting results between independent scientific publications.Related StoriesNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerSpecial blood test may predict relapse risk for breast cancer patientsStudy: Nearly a quarter of low-risk thyroid cancer patients receive more treatment than necessaryInstead, the researchers at Karolinska Institutet have developed a method for investigating all known resistance markers in AR and TP53 simultaneously. This was first done in a larger patient cohort, in a study published last year, where the researchers were able to show that individual markers in AR were not independently associated with outcome, when correcting for clinical characteristics, circulating tumor burden estimates and mutations in TP53.They now show that in the subset of the patients without TP53 mutations, the number of AR resistance markers can indeed provide independent prognostic information.”We see that the prognosis is poorest for men with three or more resistance markers in AR,” says Johan Lindberg, researcher at the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Karolinska Institutet, and senior author of the study. “This suggests that patients with a normal TP53 gene, without or with a small number of AR resistance markers would benefit more from continued hormonal treatment with medicines such as Zytiga and Xtandi.”Consequently, the research group is introducing a new concept, the AR-burden – a measure of the number of treatment relevant changes in the AR gene.The researchers are now working on improving their method of measurement and validating it retrospectively in patients recruited during the recently initiated ProBio clinical trial (NCT03903835).”Our goal is to create a test that can be used routinely in clinical practice so that patients can receive more personalized treatment,” says Johan Lindberg.

HIV prevention pill may be costeffective way of curbing the epidemic in

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)May 10 2019Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a combination drug used to prevent HIV infection, has already gained significant traction in the U.S. and Europe. The once-a-day pill, when taken consistently, can reduce the risk of HIV acquisition by over 85 percent. A new study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases by an international research team suggests that making PrEP available to men who have sex with men (MSM) and people who inject drugs (PWID) in India may be a cost-effective way of curbing the epidemic there.”We know PrEP helps stop the spread of infection; the question is whether it is a good use of limited resources? Our study shows that PrEP is a cost-effective strategy for both MSM and PWID in India. For these groups, especially in areas with high HIV incidence, PrEP is worth rolling out,” says lead and corresponding author Pooyan Kazemian, PhD, of the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Medical Practice Evaluation Center, an instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School.Related StoriesPrevalence of anal cancer precursors is higher in women living with HIV than previously reportedHIV persists in spinal fluid even after long-term treatment and is linked to cognitive deficitsTwo new studies develop algorithms to identify patients at risk of acquiring HIVUsing a widely-published mathematical model to project clinical and economic outcomes of HIV disease, the authors compared various prevention and testing programs – including annual or biannual HIV testing alone, as well as PrEP paired with HIV testing – that could help reduce HIV infection and therefore improve survival for these high-risk groups. Their findings suggest that PrEP would increase survival substantially by reducing infection risk, while more frequent HIV testing would provide little additional benefit. PrEP paired with biannual HIV testing was the only cost-effective strategy, improving average per-person survival by nearly one year and preventing more than 270,000 HIV transmissions in India over 15 years.”While the World Health Organization recommends quarterly HIV testing for those on PrEP, our analysis identifies PrEP with semi-annual testing as the cost-effective HIV prevention strategy for MSM and PWID in India,” says co-author Nagalingeswaran Kumarasamy, MBBS, PhD, of the CART Clinical Research Site, Infectious Diseases Medical Centre, Voluntary Health Services in Chennai, India.However, the authors note, a nationwide PrEP rollout would be quite costly. If nearly 60 percent of MSM and PWID across India participated in the program, it would increase HIV care expenditures by over 900 million U.S. dollars over a 5-year period. “Our findings suggest that geographic areas of highest HIV incidence should be targeted first to reduce the budget required,” says co-author Nomita Chandhiok, MBBS, DGO, PhD, of the Indian Council of Medical Research in New Delhi.

App for keeping an eye on the kids at the pool

For many, it would not be summer without a day at the public swimming pool. Now a design student has created a concept for an app that prompts parents and guardians to keep an eye on their kids. “Having their own message in that environment gives them some status and to feel good about it and the message becomes really important for the parent too,” she says.The app also enables adults to educate themselves about common poolside distractions such as cell-phones, reading, getting caught up in conversations and talking and looking at smartphones and thus momentarily overlooking the supervision of their children.Cellphones were chosen as the best way to spread the water safety message as an example of being one of the most common daily distractions—and transforming it into lifesaving message and tool.Ms McAleer was also hopeful her design could eventually be applied in uncontrolled aquatic environments – for example a private pool at home or a beach.She hoped its combination of straight-talking information with childhood engagement would attract further interest from water safety organisations. Timaru woman Gretchen McAleer developed ‘Watch Me’ for her final-year project at Massey University’s College of Creative Arts, after seeing some “near misses” in six years as a swimming pool lifeguard.According to Water Safety New Zealand, on average six infants under the age of five drown each year with a further 34 hospitalised, with 87 per cent of these incidents attributed to inadequate adult supervision.Ms McAleer’s design has inspired the New Zealand Recreation Association’s summer Poolsafe poster campaign, launched today, that promotes the child supervision message. It’s advice the young designer urges herself.”I have been involved with helping at many aquatic incidents, some more medically serious than others, but what has been the most frustrating part for me is the lack of active supervision of children under eight years old and it just doesn’t seem to be improving,” Ms McAleer says.”So, how can I as a designer change this culture?”Her app design operates under three sections – create, explore and learn, which aim to change attitudes, knowledge and behaviour or parents and guardians supervising at the pool.”It’s focused on five to seven-year-olds who don’t need a parent [or guardian] in the pool but do need them alongside the pool,” she says. One part of the app uses location services to detect and display a message when a user is in an aquatic environment.The app enables children, with the help of parents or guardians, to draw up a message or poster containing a reminder about the need to be supervised using simple phrases like “watch me,” that can then be sent via the app to their local pool and posted to a public viewing area.”No parent likes to be told how to look after their child, hence my conversational angle of using the child’s voice as the main point of communication. It also allows for straightforward and basic language that is easy to understand for all demographics. Although I am wanting to influence parents, the child is involved in this process too. So, I have not only designed for the parent to be engaged, I have also designed for the child to be engaged.” Citation: App for keeping an eye on the kids at the pool (2018, January 17) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-01-app-eye-kids-pool.html An example of the messages that can be sent using the app. Credit: Massey University Explore further More than 1/3 of parents would allow child to be in residential or hotel pool unsupervised Visual communication design student Gretchen McAleer.

British inventor Dyson pays 54 mln for Singapores priciest penthouse

The company confirmed Dyson, 72, had bought a property in the city.The luxury home at Wallich Residence sits on the top three floors of a 64-storey, 290-metre high tower—the tallest in Singapore—which is in the business district and has panoramic views over Singapore, including popular waterfront area Marina Bay.It has five bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom, a private garden and a viewing deck on the 62nd floor, according to a sales brochure for the property.It also has a private lift, storage for 600 bottles of wine, and a round-the-clock dedicated butler service.

Last month, an 11,000 square foot luxury penthouse reportedly sold for Sg$52 million. Affluent and developed, Singapore has long attracted wealthy residents from around Asia and the world—a trend that has helped fuel a rise in property prices over the years.The government has taken steps to cool the property market—in July last year, they raised buyers’ fees and tightened loan requirements.
