Report revealing the scope of America’s immigration challenge

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 28 settembre 2019

The USA TODAY NETWORK brings the full strength of its nationwide news coverage to “The Migrants,” a special digital and video journey through a week in the life of immigration in America. Nicole Carroll, USA TODAY’s editor-in-chief, said the reporting was as ambitious as it was unprecedented.“The story at times is overwhelming, but so is what is taking place at our border,” Carroll said. “As journalists, we say all the time, ‘show, don’t tell.’ Our goal was to transport our readers to scenes of the crisis, not just tell them what happened.”
With concurrent reporting from four countries, eight states and across the length of the U.S.-Mexico border, “The Migrants” reveals a system on the brink of collapse. It witnesses families facing death, and traces the influx to its roots, the decades-old challenges in Central American countries that are now exacerbated by new American policies.
“The Migrants” distinguishes itself from previous coverage of immigration, both in its timing and its scope. What’s happening in immigration in America is not happening in single moments – it’s happening all the time, a torrent of movement and conflict that the USA TODAY NETWORK is uniquely poised to capture.The reporting effort meant deploying more than two dozen journalists across the continent. For a week, they watched migrants prepare to leave Central America; crossed rivers and waited at military checkpoints in Mexico; found desperation in shelters in Mexico City and at the border; followed Border Patrol agents as they found families and children in the backcountry; and traveled by bus and plane with families who had been released to make their own way into the United States.From June 24 to 30, the teams from across the USA TODAY NETWORK traveled more than 20,000 miles, including to the highlands of Guatemala, the National Palace in Mexico City, both sides of the border from California to Texas, immigration courts in Los Angeles and the lawmaking chambers of Washington, D.C.
Field reporting is the centerpiece of a project that also draws on years of data and policy expertise. “The Migrants” reveals that the crisis is much broader and violent than has been previously reported; it is resulting in deaths, trauma, violence, crime and previously untold costs. Reporters reveal how much local tax money American cities now spend caring for migrants the federal government abandons. And they trace the roots of the surge, in part, to a crackdown on the heroin trade.

SalesOptimize Identifies Key eCommerce Players in Latest UK Report

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 agosto 2019

Irish Data Science company SalesOptimize has recently completed a major study of the UK eCommerce market which is currently valued at £73B. The report identifies key retailers who are winning in the online space, and the companies they use for payments, shipping, marketing, finance etc. The analysis was conducted based on 17.5M website domains that are registered in the UK, of which only 10.6% (1.8 million) are active – this in itself is an astounding insight. These 1.8 million websites form the basis of this report, and using market intelligence, web bots and analyzers, SalesOptimize has broken down this dataset further, identifying 509K websites that are eCommerce enabled. Of these eCommerce enabled sites, 268K are shipping products.
Online shopping has significantly increased in the UK over the last number of years, with roughly 85% of consumers making online purchases in the last 12 months alone. But how will Brexit impact this? According to SalesOptimize CEO Liz Fulham, “The future of UK eCommerce retailers is uncertain. This is due not only to the continued growth of Amazon which controls 40% of the market, but also the threat of a hard Brexit. Consumer confidence is declining, and Britain’s high streets endured a terrible 2018 with several large companies entering into administration.” Debenhams recently announced plans to close 50 of its under-performing stores, putting 4,000 jobs at risk, and New Look announced that they will close another 25 stores, bringing their total number of closures to 85. This causes serious doubt over retailers being able to withstand the brute force of a hard Brexit.

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 20 giugno 2019

WebPT, the market-leading software platform for outpatient rehab therapists, released its 2019 State of Rehab Therapy report detailing the findings from its recent industry-wide survey of more than 6,000 physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language pathology professionals from an array of specialties, settings and geographic locations. According to the report, the biggest challenges facing the rehab therapy industry today include provider burnout, increasingly complex payer relationships and mounting student debt.Organized into five sections — demographics, business and financials, challenges and opportunities, salary, and technology — the report presents data on job satisfaction, billing and reimbursements, revenue, practice size, patient volume, career outlook, top challenges and technology preferences. Key findings include:Within the next five years, more than 51.9 percent of rehab therapy professionals are considering a career change, with many looking to either reduce work hours or move into non-clinical roles.
As organizations get larger, they are increasingly participating — or planning to participate — in value-based payment programs. In fact, more than 25 percent of 21-plus-provider companies report that they already participate in such programs.
About 23 percent of all respondents reported being involved in a merger or acquisition within the last five years.
More than half of rehab therapy graduates will have more than $70,000 in student loan debt, and nearly 25 percent will owe more than $100,000. However, overall, students reported slightly lower levels of debt in 2019 compared to 2018, with the percentage of students owing $0 at graduation jumping from 8.3 percent in 2018 to 13.5 percent in 2019.
Nearly 80 percent of organizations require a physician referral for new patients even though some form of direct access to physical therapy is available in all 50 states.
High copays and coinsurances were the top-ranked regulatory issue in terms of impact to the rehab therapy community, regardless of respondent role, longevity or sex.

Immigrazione: Report FdI su islamizzazione

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 23 Mag 2019

Nel 2050 con l’immigrazione incontrollata degli ultimi anni l’Europa vedrebbe triplicato il numero dei musulmani in Europa. E dal 2001 in Europa sono 729 i morti in attentati, di questi 641, pari all’88 per cento delle vittime, per mano di islamici. Sono questi alcuni dei dati più significativi diffusi oggi dalla Fondazione Farefuturo e dall’Ufficio studi di Fratelli d’Italia nel corso di una conferenza stampa alla Camera, in cui è stato annunciato il Rapporto annuale sull’islamizzazione d’Europa e la costituzione di un Comitato scientifico, che sarà presieduto dal professor Francesco Alberoni e composto, tra gli altri, dallo psichiatra Alessandro Meluzzi, da Gianpaolo Rossi, componente CdA Rai e Mario Ciampi, segretario generale della Fondazione Farefuturo.”Intendiamo come Ufficio Studi di FdI e Farefuturo, presentare ogni 11 settembre un rapporto che faccia emergere l’islamizzazione in maniera scientifica attraverso indicatori ufficiali dell’Istat e di altre agenzie demoscopiche. E la scelta della data non è casuale, spiega il senatore di FdI e presidente della Fondazione Adolfo Urso, è legata al gravissimo attacco alle Torri gemelle alla data della battaglia di Vienna del 1683 che segnò la fine dell’assedio e la sconfitta dei turchi”.Tra i dati diffusi emerge che tra gli immigrati irregolari il 78 per cento sono musulmani, con un’età media di 30,4 anni rispetto ai 43,8 di chi non è musulmano. Mentre sul piano della natalità una donna musulmana in Europa ha in media 2,6 figli contro l’1,6 delle non musulmane. E riferito all’Italia il dato delle donne italiane scende fino all’1,32.”Dai dati che abbiamo elaborato – spiega il senatore di FdI Giovanbattista Fazzolari, responsabile nazionale del programma – emerge che siamo in presenza di un processo di islamizzazione, dovuto in particolare all’immigrazione illegale, e che viene amplificato dall’età più giovane dei musulmani e dalla natalità. In particolare tra Dal 2010 al 2016 la popolazione islamica è aumenta di un terzo in Europa, 32 per cento, e in Italia nello stesso periodo è aumenta del 38 per cento. E questo fenomeno con l’attuale gestione dell’immigrazione nel 2050 porterà a triplicare il numero degli immigrati islamici in Europa. Con aumenti sostenuti in Germania del 253 per cento, del 229 per cento nel Regno Unito e in Italia del 182 per cento”.Penetrazione islamica che, come ha spiegato Nicola Procaccini, dirigente di FdI e candidato alle elezioni europee, è “effettuata in modo orchestrata dalle monarchie del Golfo attraverso operazioni di soft power orizzontale, investendo in attività culturali, e verticali, iniziative popolari come il calcio. Proprio qui, infatti, è sempre più evidente il peso degli investimenti arabi”.Sul piano delle proposte, infine, la senatrice di FdI, Isabella Rauti, vicepresidente vicario del gruppo al Senato oltre ad evidenziare l’assenza di una normativa che impedisce all’Italia di contrastare l’integralismo islamico, ha ricordato che: “Fratelli d’Italia nella scorsa legislatura e in quella in corso ha presentato una proposta di legge per introdurre il reato di integralismo islamico. Siamo in una condizione di vacatio legis non solo in Italia ma anche in Europa, che si è rivelata una incubatrice di militanti estremisti, di jihadisti, di reclutatori, di predicatori, di radicalizzatori e radicalizzati. Dobbiamo impedire la diffusione ed il proselitismo estremista e allo stesso tempo tracciando i flussi di denaro vietare i finanziamenti da parte di quegli Stati che foraggiano le correnti islamiche integraliste”.

Best’s Market Segment Report: Growth Opportunities Abound in Hong Kong’s Health Insurance Market

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 21 Mag 2019

High out-of-pocket payments by patients at private hospitals and overwhelming demand for public health care underscores the need for further development of Hong Kong’s health insurance sector, according to a new AM Best market segment report. With the recently launched Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme (VHIS), which encourages individuals to utilize insurance protection, and the subsequent regulatory approval for more than two dozen insurers to launch VHIS insurance products, the uptake of health insurance in Hong Kong should grow significantly.In the new Best’s Market Segment Report, titled, “Growth Opportunities Abound in Hong Kong’s Health Insurance Market,” AM Best notes that while insurers are cognizant of and keen to leverage the growth potential, they must also be mindful of challenges affecting profitability and sustainability of the health insurance business. Total non-life gross premiums from direct medical insurance expanded robustly, with year-over-year growth rates rising to 11% from 4% in a five-year span (2013-2017). As direct medical products account for approximately three-quarters of the accident and health (A&H) line, A&H business now represents the largest share of domestic non-life gross premiums written, at 33% as of 2017. Despite the strong growth momentum, the A&H line of business has shown declining profitability. A&H underwriting performance has remained close to breakeven and the underwriting margin has declined sharply. Additionally, the expense ratio on direct medical insurance has continued to edge upward, to 21.3% in 2017 from 18.9% in 2013.
Intense competition on A&H business, along with rising demands for greater transparency and standardized product designs, will continue to exert pressure on underwriting profitability. AM Best considers it important for the industry to embrace a lean structure and adjust marketing and distribution strategies to lower acquisition and operational costs. At the same time, the VHIS plans present market players with an opportunity to strengthen their customer base, while gradually paving the way to upsell more profitable products.AM Best believes that insurers will pay close attention to consumer sentiment toward VHIS, and adjust their strategies accordingly. In addition, smaller market players that can find sustainable ways to refine cost structures and enhance operational efficiency while maintaining disciplined underwriting strategies likely would experience better-than-average profitability in the A&H line. Insurtech also can play an increasingly influential role in insurance companies’ customer acquisition, sales and cost management strategies.

Commission adopts a report calling on EU Member States to ratify STCW-F Convention as soon as possible

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 30 aprile 2019

The STCW-F Convention sets standards of training for personnel on board of fishing vessels and is an important contribution to the promotion of safety at sea. It contains stricter provisions for vessels of 24 meters in length or above, but it also contains important provisions on basic safety training and watch keeping applying to all fishing vessels regardless of their size.In 2015, Council Decision 2015/799 authorised Member States to ratify the STWC-F Convention in the interest of the European Union, and encouraged them to do so by May 2017. Today, the European Commission adopted a report to the Council reviewing Member States’ progress in the ratification of the STCW-F Convention.The report shows that only nine EU Member States have become Parties to the STCW-F Convention (Belgium, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain).Ratifying and implementing international standards on safety and working conditions in fishing is of utmost importance to protect the lives of the more than 150 000 fishers in the EU and the livelihoods of their families. Therefore, Member States are encouraged to ratify the STCW-F Convention, without further delay.Fishing is one of the most hazardous professions in Europe and according to EMSA report on marine casualties and incidents of 2018, almost 60% of the accidents are due to human error.National regulations on occupational health and safety in fishing, when they exist, vary widely between countries. Moreover, fishing being an international sector, most of its regulatory provisions are set at international level with the aim of creating a level playing field.
