As a public health strategist, Dr David Bishai, Professor, Bloomberg School of Public Health, John Hopkins University suggested focussing on the health needs for poor who was speaking at the panel discussion organised by, Indian Institute of Health Management and Research (IIHMR), Jaipur on ‘Effect of COVID-19 on Indian Economy: Policy and Programmatic Implications’ which was attended by 722 participants.He further raised a concern that the COVID-19 outbreak won’t end until 60-70 per cent of the human population is immune to the virus, which may take between 18 and 24 months to develop a vaccine for it. If vaccine is not developed in next two years, it will impact Indian economy dramatically, particularly the health sector because there will be less money and the human resource available to run the existing programmes will not be enough. Immediate need is to recover small business post COVID-19 by ensuring that the credits should reach them regularly by banks so that employment can be created.”The panel of experts at the 9th webinar organised by IIHMR, Jaipur, included Dr Narain Sinha, Professor, University of Botswana, Ujwal Thakar, Ex-CEO, Pratham India, Board Member-Educate India, Tamal Bandyopadyay, Author, and Consulting Editor, Business Standard, Hema Krishnamurthy, FCA- Practising Chartered Accountant, Consultant, MSME, Visiting Faculty – IIM, PR Sodani, Pro President, Dean IIHMR & Dean Training, IIHMR University, Monika Chaudhary, Faculty- Health Economics & Financing, IIHMR University, Jaipur.Dr Sinha shared insights about Indian Economy before COVD-19, the present situation, and the economy after COVD-19. His absolute focus was on the issue of migrant labourers as they are most important for Indian economy. During lockdown, 92.5 per cent of labourers have lost 1-4 weeks of their work. About 95 per cent workers get wages below minimum wage rate. The contribution of MSME in Indian GDP is 28 per cent and this sector is highly affected by the lockdown. Sectors like real estate, mining and quarrying, construction, aviation are highly impacted due to COVID-19 between April and June 2020. He also said that during nationwide lockdown, there was a demand of labour, there is a supply of labour but there was no connection between them. Therefore Government should make immediate policies according to local demographic, social and economic fabric.Thakar said, “Strengthening of democracy is the biggest solution to the economy.COVID-19 has forced the entire system to think about the biggest disaster i.e poverty. The tragedy that has made us realise that a very large section of daily wage earners in the country became very vulnerable in the wake of the pandemic. We need to focus on migrant labourers that they get immediate employment in their own villages which could help in boosting rural economy and sustainable livelihoods for poor. For this Government should connect with NGO’S who are working for the upliftment of the villages in India, get ideas from them, and involve them for successful execution.”Bandoyapadhyay added, “Government and RBI should come up with monetary solution to decrease the fiscal deficit. The Rs 1.7 trillion relief package for the poor, announced by the government is quite far from reality. The money transferred to Jan Dhan accounts and food and ration provided to daily wage earners is not enough for their survival. Government and banks are adopting conservative approach towards spending money during this crisis. If Government and RBI would not come up with monetary solution, fiscal deficit will certainly go up post COVID-19 as this crisis is different from what we have observed in 2008.”Krishnamurthy stated, “Large organisations should include MSME in their purview only then MSME will do the same to their labourers as she highlighted the impact of COVID-19 on MSME sector. She said MSME has huge dependency on new customers as they have small customer base. Medium enterprises, which have created more than 90 per cent of jobs in India, employing over 114 million people and contributing 30 per cent of the GDP, this sector is important for India, not only because it generates the largest number of jobs, but also because this sector, saves us from having a lopsided growth model; therefore inclusive behaviour has to be incorporated in business rather than cut throat competitions. Fair play and fair returns for all people in value chain has to be ensured, and should focus on having cash rather than profits through quick collection periods even when the margins are low. The major challenge for MSME is to withstand and sustain in business, inspite of losses incurred, mounted payables and lack of working capital.”Dr Sodani said, “The magnitude of the economic impact will depend upon the duration and severity of the health crisis, the length of the lockdown, and the way the situation unfolds once the lockdown is lifted. Amid uncertainty as to when the situation will normalise, a sharp downturn is expected in various indicators of the manufacturing and services sectors. The high impact sectors in terms of risk on account of COVID-19 are aviation, hotels, restaurants, jewellery, retail, shipping, non-essential items; exports; and supporting sectors like electricity, and port services.”Dr Chaudhary mentioned, “The impact of lockdown on the social sector, concerning daily wage workers and poor and vulnerable sections of the society has been immense. It is undoubtedly the need of the hour to prepare for a future that is sustainable, structurally more viable for living and working.” Share Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app Read Article MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre”
FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Hundreds of Jamaican nationals and friends united in worship at the First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale on August 1 to celebrate Jamaica’s anniversary of Emancipation and Independence, at the Ecumenical service of thanksgiving.The service was organised by the Consulate General of Jamaica in Miami.Guest preacher, Dr. Samuel Vassel, Pastor of the Bronx Bethany Church of the Nazarene in New York, told the congregation of more than 1,000 that prayer was an option as Jamaicans and friends of the Diaspora gathered to celebrate the nation’s 48th anniversary of Independence.In this time of reflection on the nation’s triumphs and also challenges, Dr. Vassel reminded his congregation that the Jamaican National Anthem was a “beautiful prayer” and should be sung from the heart in sync with God’s hope, and our actions for the betterment of the nation.Using the theme for Independence “I Believe in Jamaica” – Dr. Vassel encouraged nationals to embrace the power of prayer with confidence, consciousness and in dialogue with God as a means of finding solutions for Jamaica’s challenges.Dr. Vassel said that while there was a longing for home, those in the Diaspora “must establish yourselves with a purpose for living abroad.” In defining that purpose, he emphasised that the process should be engaged using the opportunities and available avenues for self-improvement, personal obligations, and in service to their communities.Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Hon. Olivia Grange who was special guest in the South Florida anniversary celebrations saluted Jamaicans in the Diaspora as an integral part of ‘Brand Jamaica’ through their own contributions and achievements and as ambassadors in the United States.The Minister also signaled the years of cordial friendship and cooperation between Jamaica and the United States, which she said has been a home for many Jamaicans over the years. She also stated that Jamaicans had in turn made a positive impact through the creation and engagement of opportunities in those communities.Minister Grange mentioned plans for the nation’s 50th Anniversary of Independence in 2012, which would include a grand homecoming with all Jamaicans across the Diaspora having been invited to return home to celebrate a significant milestone in the nation’s history. “We want to see tributaries of Jamaicans streaming through the streets of Kingston as we herald another milestone in our lives,” the Minister said.Minister Grange also read an Independence message from Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding.The two-hour long service included recitals by the South Florida Caribbean Chorale, a 100-voice strong group of choristers from Jamaican populated congregations in the South Florida communities, led by Steve Higgins. The lyrics and rhythm of “Sweet Jamaica” aroused a feeling of nostalgia as persons shared in the gospel song performed by the Jamaica Folk Revue and the Tallawah Mento Band. The Sierra Norwood Calvary Church Cultural Group performed an outstanding rendition of song and dialect saluting developments in Jamaica’s culture and heritage.Consul General, Sandra Grant Griffiths, in her welcome remarks urged Jamaicans across the Diaspora to recommit their ideals and choose progress for Jamaica, our beloved homeland.Highlighting the variety of events commemorating the celebration of the nation’s Independence, the Consul General expressed gratitude to the Diasporic community for “making the conscious choice of keeping Jamaica in your hearts even as you embrace the opportunities and strive to achieve the potential promised to you in the American Dream.”She praised the community for the support given to the Jamaican Consulate over the years and indicated that as leaders, commitment, responsibility and accountability were crucial in the process required for national development.Officiating Minister was the Reverend Dr. Raymond Anglin, Pastor of Ascension Peace Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, while the prayers for Jamaica and the United States were read by Reverend Dr. Alford Alphonse, Hospice rector, and Reverend Dr. Michael Curry of the Kendall Community Church of God, respectively.The scripture lessons were read by the Reverend Horace D. Ward of the Holy Family Episcopal Church; Marlon Hill, Diaspora Advisory Board representative for the Southern USA; and Miss Shanice Cox, Miss Jamaica Florida 2010.Proceeds of collections will benefit ministries of the Bronx Bethany Church of the Nazarene as well as the Jamaica Nutrition Island Network and the Jamaica Christian Boys’ Home.

CMC – Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal will face charges of changing the condition of the ball at the end of the ongoing Test against West Indies but plans to contest the allegations after pleading not guilty.The International Cricket Council announced Sunday that Chandimal had been charged at the close of the third day on Saturday under Article 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct, relating to “changing the condition of the ball in breach of clause 41.3 of the ICC Standard Test Match, ODI and T20I Playing Conditions” by “unfair” means.“The officials laid the charge after television footage from the final session’s play on Friday appeared to show the Sri Lanka captain taking sweets out from his left pocket and putting these in his mouth, before applying the artificial substance to the ball which the umpires viewed as an attempt to change its condition,” the ICC statement said.“Video evidence will be used in the hearing, which will also be attended by the match officials as well as members of the Sri Lanka team management.If Chandimal is found guilty, he faces a fine of between 50 per cent to his entire match fee, or two suspension points or three to four demerit points.The controversy unfolded early on the third day when umpires informed Sri Lanka the ball would be changed and West Indies would be awarded five penalty points, due to the altered condition of the ball.Sri Lanka took issue with the assertion and refused to take the field, leading to play eventually starting at 11:30 am, half-hour before scheduled lunch interval.A statement from Sri Lanka Cricket late Saturday said it would “take all necessary steps to defend any player, in the event any unwarranted allegation is brought against a member of the team.”
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has been given the all-clear after suffering a knock to the head during Sunday’s 2-0 win against Arsenal.The Belgian played on for 14 minutes after colliding with Alexis Sanchez but eventually had to be replaced by Petr Cech midway through the first half of the game at Stamford Bridge.Courtois was taken to hospital as a precaution but was quickly discharged, and test results have shown no problems.AdChoices广告He was treated for a minor cut to his ear and is expected to report for international duty later this week.Belgium face Andorra on Friday and Bosnia-Herzegovina next Monday in Euro 2016 qualifiers. Brain injury charity Headway has criticised Chelsea over their handling of Courtois’ injury.Headway chief executive Peter McCabe said it was “hard to understand how a concussion was not suspected”.Under Premier League rules introduced this season, players must leave the pitch after suffering a head injury.“The new rules introduced this season were designed to ensure no risks to players’ health were taken,” McCabe said in a statement.“They clearly state that ‘If there is any suspicion of the player having sustained a concussion, they must be removed from the field of play, and not allowed to return.’“Bleeding from one or both ears is one of the symptoms that requires an immediate visit to hospital.” See also:Wise: Duo can be all-time Chelsea greatsChelsea pair nursing minor injuriesChelsea v Arsenal player ratings Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Here’s the story from a buddy of mine at adidas:Bush took this photo at NFL Rookie Photo day in Los Angeles. It was during the period when his agent was going back and forth with the league regarding his number. He was given both a #5 and a #25 and was supposed to be photographed in both, but never got around to donning the #25 jersey. Well, we all know the story and now he’s wearing #25. The problem is the NFL decreed that the photos of Reggie wearing #5 could not be used under any circumstances for promotions because he has been assigned another number. The NFL did this because Reggie’s agent was trying to continue to use photos of him wearing the #5 Saints jersey because that is the number that most people associate him with. Long story short, for an ad campaign adidas had to alter an existing image (read: Photoshop). Unfortuantely, the results were not what we had anticipated as the company had an outdated Style Guide and used the wrong lettering style. 0 Share this post Share on other sites 2 sc49erfan15 rmackman 542 Link to post 1,381 posts Share on other sites 5,241 posts 0 4,155 Members Look at the photo of Reggie Bush and then look at an older photo of Aaron Stecker.

While we don’t see the Reebok logo at the shoulder, we definately see he is wearing adidas. The shoes are not spatted, so i am thinking an adidas ad/poster.2.) Right above his left knee, I think I see that the pants do have a black stripe. Those might not be Reebok either, but only those like us would think about such details since it was not supposed to be seen. Upon further inspection and judging by his well pictured Adidas casual shoes, this seems to be an advertisement. Maybe Adidas just switched up the jersey for emphasis on certain parts. The merger last July escaped my for a moment, but the fleur de lis looks definately photoshopped in. 42 Photoshopped? I am thinking that something was because:1.)

Everybody wants to know when the Fed will raise rates. Rightly so. It will be the first rate hike in nine years (!), and the market could throw a fit. People are going nuts trying to figure this out. There are linguists who dissect every syllable that comes out of Janet Yellen’s mouth, looking for clues. I’ll show you an easy and more accurate way to glean the future. There’s a market called the fed funds futures market. Traders use it to bet on what the fed funds rate will be in a given month. In other words, fed funds futures traders bet their own money on when the Fed will hike rates. This market correctly predicted that the Fed wouldn’t raise rates over the last several years. Let’s see what it’s telling us today. Current fed funds futures prices imply the following probabilities of a rate hike: There won’t be a rate hike at the April meeting. Probably not in June, July, or September either. October is a coin toss. For now, the market thinks the long-awaited hiking will begin in December. Now here’s where this gets really interesting. We can chart these probabilities over time to study how expectations have changed. In September 2014, the fed funds futures market was convinced that the Fed would raise rates by September 2015. Convinced! Back then, fed funds futures prices indicated a 99% probability that the Fed would hike rates in September 2015. Today, that probability is just 29%. This has become a reliable pattern. The market tends to believe the Fed’s jawboning as long as the date in question is still a ways off. But as the date draws near, the market gets skeptical. For good reason. The Fed talks a big game about raising rates. But every time the moment of truth approaches, it chickens out. The Fed wants us to think it might raise rates at any time, to discourage speculation in US stocks and bonds. But it’s not actually going to raise rates anytime soon. Glance up to the first chart again. See the “67%” that implies the Fed will finally hike in December? I bet that will decline to less than 50% by June, and less than 25% by October. The fed funds futures market will call malarkey on the Fed once again. And the first rate hike will be put off until 2016. But the thing about 2016 is it’s an election year. Can’t risk upsetting the apple cart for Hillary. So first rate hike in 2017, I guess. Most of the financial media, by the way, are still predicting a June or September hike. That’s why you shouldn’t listen to them. Instead, listen to people with skin in the game, like the traders who comprise the fed funds futures market. And ignore anyone who talks about investing but doesn’t actually, you know, invest. Thanks for reading. I write a monthly investment article for The Casey Report. You can check it out here.
