It includes guidance, top tips, and case studies, and signposts users to other organisations tackling charity fraud.Charity Fraud Awareness Week aims to promote awareness of the issue in the charity sector and to get people talking about it. Each day will see a series of prevention tips released, along with practical examples of common scams, and the week ends with the second charity fraud prevention conference on 28th October in London, which will highlight common fraud risks and share best practice in fraud prevention, detection and response. Two regional events will follow in December and January for those not able to attend this week’s conference.Throughout the week, charities are asked to follow the #charityfraud hashtag, tweet or email fraud-related questions to a panel of experts or share their own counter fraud initiatives, and organise their own fraud awareness week activities. Free resources are available from the Fraud Advisory Panel’s dedicated webpages.Michelle Russell, director of investigations monitoring and enforcement at the Charity Commission said:“Fraud can thrive in an environment of weak governance and poor financial management, so we are reminding charity staff and trustees, as part of Charity Fraud Awareness Week, to seek out the good practice guidance that is widely available and to review their charity’s financial controls and procedures. We’re keen to work closely with charities to improve their fraud resilience and hope that the new site will enable charities to access and learn from the best practice that’s already out there.”  95 total views,  1 views today Advertisementlast_img read more

The report offers strategic insights into the global healthcare IT systems interoperability market along with the market size and estimates for the duration 2018 to 2028. The said research study covers in-depth analysis of multiple market segments based on end users and cross-sectional study across different geographies and sub-geographies. The study covers the comparative analysis of different segments for the years 2019 & 2028. The report also provides a prolific view on market dynamics such as market drivers, restraints and opportunities. In addition, the report covers a section providing analysis on the adoption of healthcare IT systems interoperability platforms in various healthcare settings including hospitals, ambulatory care centers, and long-term care centers, among others. Healthcare IT systems interoperability enables various healthcare systems to communicate with each other and provides a holistic view of the entire information generated within a healthcare facility. With the advent of technological advancements in the healthcare IT sector, large volumes of data is being generated through the usage of various medical systems and devices at healthcare facilities. In order to reduce healthcare costs along with gaining actionable insights, it has become imperative for healthcare organizations to connect and integrate various healthcare IT systems deployed within the organization. Healthcare IT systems interoperability platforms have enabled healthcare providers to seamlessly collate and analyze the data generated at various data points. Healthcare facilities can further make use of this integration to enhance clinical workflow and reduce redundancies. Healthcare IT systems interoperability has gained immense popularity in the recent years. Rising healthcare costs and increasing need to provide effective healthcare services have led to the growing demand for healthcare IT systems interoperability. The integration of various systems enables healthcare organizations to reduce number of repeated tests and making it easier for medical staff to access patient medical data. Furthermore, with interoperability between various healthcare systems, medical professionals can easily and securely share medical information for expert consulting and referrals. Thereby, interoperability ensures continuity of care irrespective of geographical location or healthcare service provider. Furthermore, interoperability enables governments and healthcare organizations to deploy population health management which can work towards prevention and early detection of diseases. One of the major factors driving the growth in the healthcare IT systems interoperability market is the need for effective use of healthcare IT systems in the U.S. With numerous incentives from the government towards effective use of medical data, hospitals in the U.S. have been keen on achieving overall interoperability within healthcare facilities. Interoperability is also expected to play a crucial role in the European Union’s vision to build its universal healthcare record to ensure continuity in care throughout the continent. Countries in the Asia Pacific embracing healthcare IT systems interoperability include New Zealand, Singapore, and China, among others. Thereby, the overall healthcare IT systems interoperability market is expected to witness sustainable growth during the forecast period.

The magistrate passed the order on Friday, after the Amboli Police sought further time to file their report on the complaint into the ‘hateful’ tweets. The court had ordered an inquiry in October, 2020 and asked the police to file their report by December 5, 2020. Despite being given a final chance to file their report during the last hearing on January 5, the police sought further time on Friday. Complainant, Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh, then sought for process to be issued, under section 204 of the CrPC, against the two sisters. Process is issued when prima facie allegations in a complaint are found to be true, and an accused is put to notice about the case against him. It may mark the beginning of a trial. “During the hearing I filed a reply stating that the police was already given a final chance on the last occasion. I have given them my statement, an electronic evidence certificate under section 65B of the Evidence act, details of the accused, as well as witnesses, which included Farah Khan Ali, Kubra Sait and Reema Kagti,” Deshmukh said. The court then posted the matter for further hearing on March 4. In the complaint Deshmukh has alleged that Ranaut’s elder sister, Rangoli, allegedly posted a tweet against the Muslim community in April, 2020, following which her account was suspended. He alleges that Ranaut then posted a video in support of her sister and in the clip allegedly refers to members of the Jamati Muslim community as “terrorists.” The complaint is filed for offences under sections 153-A, 153-B, 195-A, 298 and 505 of the Indian Penal Code, related to disrupting communal harmony.

Booster shot: NYC real estate sees salvation in vaccine

first_imgEmail Address* Share via Shortlink (Getty, iStock)It’s one of New York City’s biggest real estate events of the year: Thousands of attendees fill the Jacob Javits Center for the International Council of Shopping Centers retail show.The December event was canceled, as virtually everything was last year. But today, Javits is one of the vaccination sites the real estate industry is counting on to bring New York back to pre-Covid life.In the parlance of real estate, widespread vaccination is seen as a leading indicator. Real estate’s recovery is expected to follow, though some segments are expected to take longer than others.“I think you’re going to have pockets of real explosive growth,” said Marcus & Millichap’s Eric Anton, who noted decimated sectors like retail and hospitality have the most potential to rebound. “I think it will spur confidence in multifamily in New York and New Jersey, which seem to be tumbling beyond recognition.”ADVERTISEMENTSome sectors are primed for a fast comeback. Hotels, for example, are among the assets most sensitive to changes in the economy, as their room rates are essentially reset every night. Many experts believe that once business travel and tourism return, the hotel industry will bounce back relatively quickly.Dr. Anthony Fauci last week told a group of performing arts professionals that theaters could be able to open later this year.“If everything goes right, this will occur some time in the fall of 2021,” said Fauci, according to the New York Times. “So that by the time we get to the early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing on stage as well as people in the audience.”For other types of real estate, such as offices, recovery may have more to do with how work patterns change than with vaccinations. Others, such as multifamily apartments, will have to factor in things like eviction moratoriums and federal financial support, on top of changes from the 2019 rent law.New York City administered its first coronavirus vaccine Dec. 15, and this week Gov. Andrew Cuomo expanded the list of those eligible for one to include individuals 75 and older. But the rollout has had its share of challenges, such as reports of pharmacies throwing out expired vaccines or distribution sites booking more appointments than they had vaccines to accommodate.It’s unclear when enough people will get vaccinated to allow for the economy to significantly reopen.For the real estate industry, there is plenty of room for recovery following a year when business all but shut down.Investment sales in Manhattan, for example, were off 51 percent in 2020 compared to the year prior, according to Avison Young. The borough recorded just $8.5 billion worth of deals.Manhattan retail, meanwhile, recorded its sixth-straight quarter of declining leasing volume at the end of 2020, according to CBRE. Retail leasing over the previous 12 months dropped below 2.1 million square feet, according to the brokerage.And office leasing hit a record low in 2020, as Manhattan recorded just 19.4 million square feet of leases, Avison Young noted. That was down 51 percent from the year before and more than 20 percent below the previous record low of 25 million square feet in 2008 at the onset of the financial crisis.Prior to Covid, the office leasing market had some of its best years ever. Although it’s not clear when, if ever, the sector will return to pre-pandemic levels, when landlords and tenants return to the negotiating table, they’ll find a different dynamic.“There’s going to be a period, and who knows how long it’s going to last for, where tenants are firmly in the driver’s seat,” said Bill Montana at Savills.Manhattan’s vacancy rate stood at 14.2 percent at the end of 2020, according to Avison Young. Industry experts generally agree that when the rate exceeds 10 percent, the market favors tenants over landlords.Many large office occupiers put leasing plans on hold when Covid hit and the state temporarily halted in-person showings. Some kicked the can down the road with short-term renewals. But there’s a constant churn of expiring terms across the city, meaning company CEOs face some kind of decision on their spaces, pandemic or not.Montana said those companies and their real estate advisers are watching the headlines like everyone else. By the time the city gets to herd immunity and workers are back to their office buildings, the occupiers will already have been working on their plans to lease new spaces, reconfigure their current ones for social distancing or figure out some kind of mix between working from home and the office.“The smart ones are already thinking about that now,” he said. “They’re not necessarily pulling the trigger, but they are aiming the gun.”Returning to the office is a big part of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s road to recovery for the city. The governor on Tuesday revealed a plan to make rapid testing available to get people back in offices and restaurants.“Office buildings are the engines of our economy,” he said. “Bringing workers back safely will boost ridership on our mass transit, bring customers back to restaurants and stores and return life to our streets.”Thomas Flood of Richland Management, based in Great Neck, urged the governor in a letter to include superintendents, porters and other essential building staff in the early vaccination rounds.“It did not surprise me when I learned that a doorman in the Bronx was one of New York’s first fatalities,” he wrote. “It is consistent with the type of service that these workers provide and the care that they extend to our residents. Most days I worry over the continued risk that my staff take and the implications this has for the health of our residents and operation of our buildings.”For some areas of real estate, though, recovery is already underway.Manhattan apartment rentals surged to their highest levels since the financial crisis from October through December as falling rents enticed tenants to ink new deals, according to Miller Samuel.Joe Ben-Zvi, co-founder of leasing automation company Vero Leasing, said many of the enticements landlords are offering to fill apartments will remain for some time.“The amount of absorption it’s going to take to subdue those incentives is going to take several leasing cycles,” he said. “Just because the virus no longer around doesn’t mean those incentives will go away.”Contact Rich Bockmann Full Name* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* TagsCommercial Real EstateCoronaviruslast_img read more

Simone Biles makes history for winning most world medals of any gymnast

first_imgOctober 13, 2019 /Sports News – National Simone Biles makes history for winning most world medals of any gymnast Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLaurence Griffiths/Getty Images(STUTTGART, Germany) — Gymnast and Olympic medalist Simone Biles keeps topping her own records.On Sunday, she became the all-time medal earner at this weekend’s World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany, the International Gymnast Federation (FIG) posted on Facebook.Biles won her 25th world medal and her 5th gold medal of the week during the floor exercise competition according to a tweet from FIG.If the 22-year-old gymnast can do the same at the 2020 Olympics, she will have achieved something no other female gymnast has accomplished during the Olympic Games, The Associated Press reported.She won the individual all-around title at the World Championships last week, scoring 58.99 points on the balance beam, floor, vault and uneven bars — breaking her own past record.She also created two signature moves at the event: the double-double dismount on the balance beam and triple-double on the floor, both of which will be named after Biles.Her signature moves are so complex that FIG deemed them a safety risk for other gymnasts to attempt.“There is added risk in landing of double saltos for Beam dismounts (with/without twists), including a potential landing on the neck. Reinforcing, there are many examples in the Code where decisions have been made to protect the gymnasts and preserve the direction of the discipline,” FIG said in a statement about Biles’ signature moves. “The WTC’s task is to ensure the safety of all athletes around the world and decisions are not based purely on one gymnast.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
