The knowledge gained from an MBA is applicable to all sectors and industries. but rare is the complaint about the actual quality of care . It is no secret that wait times for appointments for specialty care in the private sector tend to be extremely long" The public he says has gotten a distorted view of the quality of VA care at various field hearings where a handful of those with poor experiences have taken center stage “If one veteran is not receiving the care he or she needs it is one too many” Ryan Gallucci of the Veterans of Foreign Wars told the panel That’s a worthy goal for any healthcare organization but one impossible to achieve when that organization is treating 230000 patients a day There have been success stories "I have to say that until Senator Obama became President and Secretary Shinseki became the secretary I couldn’t get adequate care" says Alex Lemons who was a Marine from 2002-09 and served as a scout sniper among other billets during three combat tours in Iraq "PTSD claims under President Bush were as successful as expeditions to Everest I got my claim within one year of Shinseki taking office" he says "Sadly my claim had actually been sitting in the wrong pile on the wrong floor of the VA in Portland Oregon I had to call someone there track it down they found it and then took it literally up to the next floor and I saw the acceptance letter about two weeks after that" Acting VA inspector general Richard Griffin told Senators his probe has found potentially 17 veterans who died while waiting for care in Phoenix but said there was no evidence that the waiting caused those deaths The original whistleblower a recently-retired VA doctor elaborated Wednesday "In terms of the allegation that I originally made" Sam Foote told CNN "that was up to 40 people may have died while waiting for care at the Phoenix VA We never made the comment that they all died because of the wait just that they were dying while waiting for care" An unscientific poll released by VoteVetsorg Wednesday among its members found that 60% of 3300 veterans want Shinseki to stay on the job Only 17% want him to leave; the rest are undecided "The American Legion has called on Shinseki to resign" VoteVets co-founder Jon Soltz wrote "As of yet I don’t believe they asked their members if they agreed So we decided to Of those on our list who also are members of the American Legion only 17% backed the Legion’s call for Shinseki to resign Sixty-four percent said he should not resign with 19% saying they weren’t yet sure" "The problem is the inability to fire terrible VA employees not the faulty chain of command" says William Treseder who spent 10 years as a Marine before leaving as a sergeant in 2011 after tours in Afghanistan and Iraq Congress is pushing to give Shinseki more authority to cashier ineffective VA workers; Shinseki whose agency fired 3000 of its 300000 workers last year says he doesn’t need such power "If Secretary Shinseki can’t overcome these problems in six years at the head” Treseder adds “I’m not sure what we expect the President to do in the next week" which is when Obama expects to receive “preliminary results” from the IG’s nationwide survey of access to VA care Like most Washington battles the fight for the VAs future boils down to money Some believe the tripling of the VA budget since 9/11 is sufficient “They have gotten more money number one And number two is there is no shift in priorities” David McGinnis a retired Army brigadier general and Obama supporter said on the PBS NewsHour Wednesday “The internal attitude is ‘If you want me to do more give me more money’ instead of taking a look at this is the new world order We got Vietnam veterans now realizing ‘Hey we need the VA’ We went 30 years without realizing that or longer Also you have this whole new group of veterans coming in And we havent adjusted the priorities inside VA to spend the money appropriately” Others believe there is no way to change the VA without boosting its budget Despite the surplus of congressional outrage directed toward the VA in recent weeks theres been a congressional deficit when it comes to giving the VA the money it and its advocates say it needs even as its budget has grown from $50 billion in 2001 to $150 billion today Typical Washington if you believe those two Apparently there’s enough blame but not enough money to go around Write to Mark Thompson at [email protected] the decision whether or not to pursue the MBA can be difficult due to that it is an investment of time and money However the degree has the power to be incredibly beneficial when it comes to furthering your career thus making it one of the most popular post-graduate degrees in the US, and her English Lab occupy a 275-sq.

Asia’s shrinking glaciers protect large populations from drought stress

first_imgAbout 800 million people depend in part on meltwater from the thousands of glaciers in the high mountains of Asia. Water stress makes this region vulnerable to drought, but glaciers are a uniquely drought-resilient source of water. Here I show that seasonal glacier meltwater is equivalent to the basic needs of 221 ± 59 million people, or most of the annual municipal and industrial needs of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. During drought summers, meltwater dominates water inputs to the upper Indus, Aral and Chu/Issyk-Kul river basins. This reduces the risk of social instability, conflict and sudden migrations triggered by water scarcity, which is already associated with the large, rapidly growing populations and hydro-economies of these basins. Regional meltwater production is, however, unsustainably high—at 1.6 times the balance rate—and is expected to increase in future decades before ultimately declining. These results update and reinforce a previous publication in Nature on this topic, which was retracted after an inadvertent error was discovered.last_img

Majority of buyers benefit from progressive stamp duty

first_imgSome 71 per cent of homebuyers in England and Wales will benefit from changes to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) announced in the Autumn Statement, according to Nationwide.Nationwide said that 86 per cent of purchases in London and the South East would profit from the Government’s decision to abolish the slab structure on Stamp Duty tax.Homebuyers in London are set to be the biggest beneficiary of the change due to the fact that home prices are generally higher and thus a higher proportion of transactions are liable for stamp duty.Overall, it is estimated that 98 per cent of buyers will pay the same or less tax under the new system in which purchasers pay the marginal tax rate on the relevant elements of the purchase price. According to 2013/14 data from the Land Registry, homebuyers in England and Wales would save an average of £1,600.In fact, according to the latest H M Revenue & Customs Tax Receipts statistics released in recent days, the Chancellor’s reform of the SDLT regime is already having an impact on tax receipts. The figures show that following the changes, SDLT receipts in January 2015 were down £299 million month-on-month, and down £126 million compared to a year earlier.Robert Pullen, Personal Tax Manager at London Chartered Accountants Blick Rothenberg LLP, commented, “In the Autumn statement on 3rd December, the Chancellor announced that from 4th December the amount of SDLT charged on a transaction was to be calculated on a progressive basis, rather than a ‘cliff-edge’ system. A person buying a house for £300,000 on 3rd December would pay SDLT of £9,000, whilst someone buying the same house at the same price on 4th December would pay SDLT of £5,000, a saving of £4,000.”However, Pullen added, “Of course not all people have been made better off by these changes, with those purchasing houses over £937,500 being worse off, so for those people, this could instead be considered the first pre-election tax increase and was definitely not a tax break.”Meanwhile, the January Transaction Data from Land Registry shows that it completed over 1,319,660 applications from its customers in January. This includes 1,278,536 applications by account customers, of which 335,489 were applications in respect of registered land (dealings); 595,723 were applications to obtain an official copy of a register or title plan; 162,298 were searches and 93,018 were transactions for value.progressive_stamp_duty sdlt stamp_duty_land_tax February 24, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
