Roughing it is overrated. The outdoors doesn’t always have to be so tough.My wife and I were headed to celebrate our first anniversary as we rolled through Wytheville, Va., on our way to a cabin outside of town. The wonder of metropolitan Wytheville gave way to a small country lane that snaked through meadows filled with daffodils and cantering horses. After about 30 minutes, we came to the road that was home to the cabin where we were staying. We turned onto it.The gravel crunched under the car tires as we drove in. A good dozen cats lazed in the road, making no effort to get out of the way as we rolled up. Finally, I had to put the car in park, get out and start waving my arms like a deranged bird until one white cat finally got up, stretched like a retiree waking from his nap, and took his time slinking over to the main house of the property. The other cats followed suit. We pulled up to where they were all congregating, went inside, and made small talk with the owner, a genial guy in his 50s named Paul.After a few minutes, he sent us on our way to our cabin. I should say that this was not roughing it. I’ve roughed it many times before—slept on the ground, on buses in India, on flea-bitten cots in the Thai hinterlands. This was not that. This was new, waxed wood floors; satellite TV (we didn’t turn it on, at least); an in-room jacuzzi; little firelighter cups to make it all but impossible to fail to get the fire going. But we weren’t there to rough it.There are two ways to find communion with nature. The first is the against-all-odds struggle, the punishing scramble up sheer rock face, the just-this-side-of-helpless flailing kayak run through a minefield of jagged rock that leaves you panting and trembling afterward. And there’s certainly something to it: You come out of it awed, victorious, and alive, in every possible way.But there’s also something to be said for the other way. The hours-long porch sit, the wordless stare out into the wild as you take long pulls on a sweating bottle of cold beer. The leathery flutter of bat wings and the ratchet-like shriek of a thumb-sized tree frog making a sound the size of the sky. The peace which passes understanding.This was that—or it was supposed to be anyway. That first night, we made the drive into town for groceries. By the time we got back, it was already dark. We opened the door, and a mantis-looking bug that was literally the size of a robin shot out from behind it. I may or may not have involuntarily thrown my keys at it and screamed at the top of my lungs (but it was, like, a Kiefer Sutherland growl-scream, with cuss words! Just really, super manly).My wife the bug-phobe cowered inside while I grilled our steaks out on the porch in the pitch dark, as turning off the porch light was the only way to calm down the cloud of moths that threatened to swarm and carry me off every time a drip of liquid fat hit the fire and sent a few bright licks of flame shooting through the grill. Every once in a while, the enormous green bat-bug that had been hiding behind the door would cruelly taunt me by flapping its pterodactyl-like wings next to my ear. It felt like helicopter rotors were in a full spin right above my head.But I survived, and we managed to eat our steaks and microwaved corn and potatoes in peace. The next morning was a different story. There’s this Japanese word—so I hear; don’t speak a lick of Japanese otherwise—komorebi. You know the way sunlight flickers and shimmers through shifting leaves on a summer morning? That’s komorebi. This was a komorebi kind of day.Paul, the owner, brought us breakfast his wife had just made and then disappeared, leaving us to our cabin, secluded on all sides by stands of sun-touched trees. We sat in rockers on the porch, chewing danish and sipping coffee. The morning sun danced through the leaves. An animal we were never able to identify—could’ve been a donkey, could’ve been a bullfrog, could’ve been an excitable cow—started lowing just out of sight. That and the rustling of the leaves and the occasional whine of a cicada were the only sounds in the air: No cars, no chainsaws, no airplanes. Nothing but the outdoors.By and by, the sunlight began to dull as giant thunder clouds gathered in the distance, massive anvils that answered the mystery animal’s call with their own rumble. A few heavy, wet drops began to slap at the leaves around us, and then the rain began in earnest. We continued to sit as it drummed the roof of the porch. An occasional sunburst would flare through the clouds and turn the drops into thousands of shimmering little diamonds, and then it was over. The ground started to steam, and a cat that had made its way under the porch during the rainfall scampered up, mewled at us, and trotted back down the road to the main house.That was what we had come for. We stayed a few days, did some driving, some exploring, some hiking; made it back into town for burgers that I made sure to cook before the sun went down and the bugs emerged from hell to wage war on the porch light and any foolish human who stood near it. But nothing compared to the peace of that second type of communion with nature, the joy of seclusion and silence amid a forest teeming with life.Eventually, we made the drive back to Charlottesville, with an obligatory stop at Foamhenge along the way, and we were right back at work the next day. But here’s the thing about nature, the true joy of the outdoors, regardless of whether you log any effort or hardship: Even just those few days in a plush cabin were enough to lodge something in us that we’ll carry with us forever. The outdoors give you peace in the wilderness. •
The system will use a digital tracking code, allowing citizens to track a product through websites, text messages, telephone or cell phone calls in order to ascertain its legitimacy and origin. “The database to reach this phase of SUNIR has no precedents,” Ortega said. “For the first time, with the [digital] print and the merchandise number, Colombians will know whether what they’re buying is legitimate. A person who doesn’t find a registered digital print for the product will need to notify the government, which is better able to track those [responsible for] distributing the illegal merchandise. However, we’re still working out the details to encourage people to report on the business where they bought the illegal merchandise.” According to CONPES, tax evasion relating to alcoholic beverages amounted to US$158 million in 2010. Some of this tax evasion occurs in the popular commercial areas called “San Andresitos,” found in the large cities of Colombia, where merchants sell contraband clothing, cigarettes, liquor, accessories, and technological products at low prices. David Rincón, a liquor dealer at one of the most popular San Andresitos in Bogotá, said SUNIR represents a major blow to the contraband industry. “SUNIR will be a simple method to unify tracking and merchandise,” he said. “For some, this will mean their business is in fact over – because it’s true, there’s too much unchecked contraband – and once the system is in place, they’ll lose their money. But for those of us who operate within the law, we have nothing to fear.” SUNIR’s main short-term goal is to merge information coming from all 32 departments and the Bogotá District with the DIAN and apply a uniform standard for registering, classifying, interpreting and consolidating data. “With the new system we’ll know in real time what merchandise is legal, and we’ll be able to strike at the core of the smugglers’ operation accurately and effectively,” said Bernardo Escobar Yaver, head of DIAN’s Customs Division. According to SUNIR’s action plan, released by CONPES, the following steps have been put in place: BOGOTÁ, Colombia – The Colombian economy loses US$200 million annually to contraband sales of liquor, tobacco, and other undocumented products, according to the National Merchants Federation (FENALCO). But the National Tax and Customs Directorate (DIAN) has taken a major step in its fight against contraband by creating the National System of Information and Tracking (SUNIR), which beginning in November, will track products so officials can understand how domestic and foreign products are smuggled and sold illegally. “With the new system, all Colombians, retailers and distributors will know which products are legal, genuine, and have paid taxes,” said DIAN Director Juan Ricardo Ortega on Jan. 31, when the National Council on Economic Policy and Planning (CONPES) gave the green light to SUNIR. Colombia previously relied on a conventional system of seals, which were easily forged, to indicate a product was legal. SUNIR will consolidate all procedures and systems used to classify the importation, distribution, consumption and export of any goods coming in or out of Colombia. All of the country’s 32 departments are expected to be in compliance with the system so the state isn’t shorted of any sales tax. “[The] truly most important [aspect] of this system is that by controlling contraband, the country’s resources will grow, and thus we will have more revenue to invest in social and health [programs],” said Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. Santos predicted SUNIR will be “a success that will dramatically help to eliminate contraband in Colombia.” SUNIR stems from a 2003 World Health Organization (WHO) Convention on tobacco control, which was ratified by Colombia in 2006. Under the terms of the protocol, Colombia pledges to adopt legal, executive, and administrative measures to effectively eliminate the commercial sale of illegal products, and to control the origin of such items as beer, mixers, liquor, wines, aperitifs, and, along similar lines, cigarettes and tobacco products. A new strategy By Dialogo February 15, 2012 Register product information; Label taxable goods and products; Count every unit produced; Enter all related information about where the product originated into the system; Verify the product’s origin, authenticity and destination; Generate reports about products subject to sales taxes; Implement follow-up and monitoring tools. read more
3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Some advisors are cultivating millennial clients now to retain them as their portfolios grow.by: Joanne CleaverLet’s be clear: Garrett Prom isn’t a wealth manager.The Austin, Texas, fee-based financial advisor is investing in clients who are in their 20s, 30s and early 40s, with the expectation that providing holistic financial planning now will result in loyalty as their portfolios grow. In a way, millennials are annuities for his relatively new advisory practice.In November, Prom met with a couple in their mid-20s. They’d saved $50,000 – not enough for a wealth advisor to sneeze at, but a sizable sum for two young people. They needed to figure out how much to shift into a retirement account (Prom recommended a Roth IRA), how much to devote to a new car and how much to seed the down payment for the house they’d like to buy within a couple of years.Prom spent four hours helping them map out earning, saving and spending goals keyed to near-term life milestones. He opened his conversation by telling them upfront how his fee structure works. And he expects that they, like other clients, will enthusiastically refer him in the analog version of social networking: word-of-mouth.Prom’s approach hits on many of the cylinders experts say are key to winning millennial clients. Meanwhile, traditional financial marketing is missing the mark, researchers and marketing experts say. This matters because millennials have been handed a daunting set of financial circumstances: underemployment or unemployment, high student debt, a slow-growth economy and fewer chances for traditional career advancement. Having witnessed the financial meltdown of 2008 and the devastation of many older family members’ retirement, home equity and hopes, millennials are wary. continue reading » read more

By February 1967, a year or less after many of the law’s provisions had taken effect, 95 percent of hospitals were compliant, Dr. Lee said. “He was largely responsible for that effort,” said Professor David Barton Smith of Drexel University and author of “The Power to Heal: Civil Rights, Medicare and the Struggle to Transform America’s Health System” (2016).Dr. Lee hailed from a family of physicians — his father and four siblings were doctors — and while working in the Palo Alto Medical Clinic (now the Palo Alto Medical Foundation), which his father founded, he saw firsthand the effects on the poor and the elderly of inadequate health care and the lack of insurance coverage.As early as 1961, he was a consultant on aging to the Santa Clara Department of Welfare in California, and as a member of the American Medical Association and a Republican at the time, he defied both the A.M.A. and his party in testifying before Congress on behalf of a precursor to Medicare that would have helped pay for hospital and nursing home care through Social Security for patients over 65.Dr. Lee was branded a socialist and a Communist (no matter that he had served as a doctor in the Korean War). Dr. Lee’s use of Medicare funding to desegregate hospitals “changed the economic lives of millions of seniors,” Mr. Lee added. In 1987, after leading the University of California, San Francisco, and heading health policy and research programs there as a professor of social medicine, he further riled fellow physicians when, as chairman of Congressional commission, he recommended a standardized national limit on how much doctors enrolled in the Medicare program, with a vast pool of patients available to them, could charge above a fixed schedule.He was called back to Washington in 1993, again to be an assistant secretary, this time of the renamed Department of Health and Human Services under the Clinton administration. Serving until 1997, he advised the White House on its ultimately failed effort on health care reform. – Advertisement – Dr. Philip R. Lee, who as a leading federal health official and fighter for social justice under President Lyndon B. Johnson wielded government Medicare money as a cudgel to desegregate the nation’s hospitals in the 1960s, died on Oct. 27 in a hospital in Manhattan. He was 96.The cause was heart arrhythmia, his wife, Dr. Roz Lasker, said.- Advertisement – In 2007, the university named its Institute for Health Policy Studies, which he founded in 1972, in his honor.He was also lauded for his aggressive role in confronting the AIDS epidemic as the president of the newly-formed Health Commission of the City and County of San Francisco from 1985 to 1989.The author of a half-dozen books, Dr. Lee was an early critic of the pharmaceutical industry in “Pills, Profits and Politics” (1974, with Milton Silverman).Dr. Lee’s first two marriages, to Catherine Lockridge and Carroll Estes, ended in divorce. In addition to his wife, he is survived by five children from his first marriage, Dorothy, Paul, Margaret, Theodore Lee and Amy Lee Pinneo; a stepdaughter, Duskie Estes, from his second marriage; five grandchildren; two step-grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.Alex Traub contributed reporting. Provisions in the Medicare legislation subjected 7,000 hospitals nationwide to rules barring discrimination against patients on the basis of race, creed or national origin. The law required equal treatment across the board — from medical and nursing care to bed assignments and cafeteria and restroom privileges — and barred discrimination in hiring, training or promotion.Before the law took effect in 1966, fewer than half the hospitals in the country met the desegregation standard and less than 25 percent did in the South.“I remember during one of my visits,” Dr. Lee told the journal of the American Society on Aging in 2015, “a cardiologist at Georgia Baptist Hospital told me, ‘Well, you know, Dr. Lee, if I put a nigger in with one of my white patients, it would kill the patient. My patient would die of a heart attack.’”- Advertisement – From his office at the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, as the assistant secretary for health and scientific affairs from 1965 to 1969, Dr. Lee engineered the introduction of Medicare, which was established for older Americans in 1965, one year after Johnson had bulldozed his landmark civil-rights bill through Congress.“To Phil, Medicare wasn’t just a ‘big law’ expanding coverage; it was a vehicle to address racial and economic injustice,” his nephew Peter Lee, the executive director of Covered California, which runs the state’s health care marketplace under the Affordable Care Act, was quoted as saying in a tribute by the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Lee was the university’s chancellor from 1969 to 1972, after leaving the Johnson administration. In 2015 he endorsed the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act and suggested that the country could go even further in guaranteeing universal health care.“In 1967, President Johnson said we would continue to work until equality of treatment is the rule,” Dr. Lee wrote in Generations: Journal of the American Society on Aging. “By making Medicare an option for all Americans, the kind of care I receive could be available to everyone.”Philip Randolph Lee was born in San Francisco on April 17, 1924, to Dr. Russell Van Arsdale Lee, who had lobbied for national health insurance as a member of a commission appointed by President Harry S. Truman, and Dorothy (Womack) Lee, an amateur musician.His interest in medicine, he told Stanford Medicine Magazine in 2004, “began with house calls with my dad from the age of 6 or 7.”He earned his bachelor’s and medical degrees at Stanford University in 1945 and 1948. As a member of the Naval Reserve, he was on active duty as a doctor from 1943 to 1946 and again from 1949 to 1951, during the Inchon invasion in Korea. He received a master of science degree from the University of Minnesota in 1955 and had fellowships at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine in New York and the Mayo Clinic.“Phil moved from clinical medicine to health policy and then devoted his life to addressing issues at the nexus of civil rights, social justice and health,” Dr. Lasker, his wife, said in an email.His prominent role in shaping Medicare and other federal health policies was preceded by a stint, 1963-65, as director of health for the Agency for International Development. As chancellor of the University of California, San Francisco, he was credited with increasing racial diversity among its staff, faculty and student body. – Advertisement – read more
Mail Online 8 June 2012Homosexuals are indifferent to David Cameron’s campaign for gay marriage, with fewer than four in ten believing that it is a priority for their community. And there is deep scepticism about the Prime Minister’s motives in trying to extend marriage to same-sex couples, with half believing he is doing it only to ‘make his party look more compassionate rather than because of his convictions’. The overwhelming apathy about gay marriage was revealed in the first online poll of gay, lesbian and bisexual people on the issue. Just over a quarter – 27 per cent – said they would get married if the law permitted it, just one percentage point more than the number who said they would take up civil partnerships, which were introduced by the Labour government. The findings, from an online ComRes poll of 541 adults who describe themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, are a blow for the Prime Minister, who is championing gay marriage.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2156183/Most-homosexuals-indifferent-David-Camerons-drive-gay-marriage.html?printingPage=true%20 read more
American College of Pediatricians – January 2016The American College of Pediatricians (The College) is committed to the health and well-being of children, including prevention of disease by vaccines. It has recently come to the attention of the College that one of the recommended vaccines could possibly be associated with the very rare but serious condition of premature ovarian failure (POF), also known as premature menopause. There have been two case report series (3 cases each) published since 2013 in which post-menarcheal adolescent girls developed laboratory documented POF within weeks to several years of receiving Gardasil, a four-strain human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV4).1,2 Adverse events that occur after vaccines are frequently not caused by the vaccine and there has not been a noticeable rise in POF cases in the last 9 years since HPV4 vaccine has been widely used.Nevertheless there are legitimate concerns that should be addressed: (1) long-term ovarian function was not assessed in either the original rat safety studies3,4 or in the human vaccine trials, (2) most primary care physicians are probably unaware of a possible association between HPV4 and POF and may not consider reporting POF cases or prolonged amenorrhea (missing menstrual periods) to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), (3) potential mechanisms of action have been postulated based on autoimmune associations with the aluminum adjuvant used1 and previously documented ovarian toxicity in rats from another component, polysorbate 80,2 and (4) since licensure of Gardasil® in 2006, there have been about 213 VAERS reports (per the publicly available CDC WONDER VAERS database) involving amenorrhea, POF or premature menopause, 88% of which have been associated with Gardasil®.5 The two-strain HPV2, CervarixTM, was licensed late in 2009 and accounts for 4.7 % of VAERS amenorrhea reports since 2006, and 8.5% of those reports from February 2010 through May 2015. This compares to the pre-HPV vaccine period from 1990 to 2006 during which no cases of POF or premature menopause and 32 cases of amenorrhea were reported to VAERS.Many adolescent females are vaccinated with influenza, meningococcal, and tetanus vaccines without getting Gardasil®, and yet only 5.6% of reports related to ovarian dysfunction since 2006 are associated with such vaccines in the absence of simultaneous Gardasil® administration. The overwhelming majority (76%) of VAERS reports since 2006 with ovarian failure, premature menopause, and/or amenorrhea are associated solely with Gardasil®. When VAERS reports since 2006 are restricted to cases in which amenorrhea occurred for at least 4 months and is not associated with other known causes like polycystic ovary syndrome or pregnancy, 86/89 cases are associated with Gardasil®, 3/89 with CervarixTM, and 0/89 with other vaccines administered independently of an HPV vaccine.5 Using the same criteria, there are only 7 reports of amenorrhea from 1990 through 2005 and no more than 2 of those associated with any one vaccine type.Few other vaccines besides Gardasil® that are administered in adolescence contain polysorbate 80.6 Pre-licensure safety trials for Gardasil® used placebo that contained polysorbate 80 as well as aluminum adjuvant.2,7 Therefore, if such ingredients could cause ovarian dysfunction, an increase in amenorrhea probably would not have been detected in the placebo controlled trials. Furthermore, a large number of girls in the original trials were taking hormonal contraceptives which can mask ovarian dysfunction including amenorrhea and ovarian failure.2 Thus a causal relationship between human papillomavirus vaccines (if not Gardasil® specifically) and ovarian dysfunction cannot be ruled out at this time.Numerous Gardasil safety studies, including one released recently,8 have looked at demyelinating and autoimmune diseases and have not found any significant problems. Unfortunately, none of them except clinical safety pre-licensure studies totaling 11,778 vaccinees9 specifically addressed post-vaccination ovarian dysfunction. While data from those studies do not indicate an increased rate of amenorrhea after vaccination, the essential lack of saline placebos and the majority of participants taking hormonal contraceptives in those studies preclude meaningful data to rule out an effect on ovarian function.A Vaccine Safety Datalink POF study is planned to address an association between these vaccines and POF, but it may be years before results will be determined. Plus, POF within a few years of vaccination could be the tip of the iceberg since ovarian dysfunction manifested by months of amenorrhea may later progress to POF. Meanwhile, the author of this statement has contacted the maker of Gardasil, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make known the above concerns and request that (1) more rat studies be done to look at long-term ovarian function after HPV4 injections, (2) the 89 VAERS reports identified with at least 4 months amenorrhea be reviewed by the CDC for further clarification since the publicly available WONDER VAERS database only contains initial reports, and (3) primary care providers be notified of a possible association between HPV and amenorrhea. A U.S. Government Representative responded that they “will continue to conduct studies and monitor the safety of HPV vaccines. Should the weight of the evidence from VAERS or VSD and other sources indicate a likely causal association between POF and HPV vaccines, appropriate action will be taken in terms of communication and public health response.”The College is posting this statement so that individuals considering the use of human papillomavirus vaccines could be made aware of these concerns pending further action by the regulatory agencies and manufacturers. While there is no strong evidence of a causal relationship between HPV4 and ovarian dysfunction, this information should be public knowledge for physicians and patients considering these vaccines.http://www.acpeds.org/the-college-speaks/position-statements/health-issues/new-concerns read more
How many of you remember Jimmy Rayl? The former IU star passed away recently at the age of 77. He was a high-scoring guard at Indiana University from 1960-1963.Rayl, known as the “Splendid Splinter” because of his slender physique, was at IU while I was attending Purdue University. This usual heated rivalry was even more intense because Rayl and Purdue’s Terry Dishinger were always in the running for the Big 10’s leading scorer. One particular year the scoring title came down to the last Big 10 game of the season. If my memory serves me correctly, Dishinger scored 41 points in that last game and Rayl was held to 14; thus, allowing Dishinger to be the leading scorer that year.The Kokomo High School graduate went on to play in the American Basketball Association which was a rival to the present NBA.
