APTN National NewsAnyone convicted of a crime will soon have to pay the fine or do the time.The Conservative government has proposed amendments to Bill C-37 that will increase victim surcharge fines and make them mandatory.In fact, the changes will double the fines and take away the judge’s ability to waive the fee.The surcharge is supposed to fund provincial programs to help assist victims but it’s been routinely waived by judges in the past.Critics say it will bring further anguish to the lives of the less fortunate.APTN National News reporter Annette Francis has more on the story.
You can find more details of the competition, and how to enter, here.In an interview with UN News, Ms. Wickramanayake said that young people are key to solving global climate challenges, and drivers of change and innovation: “With the global climate movement led by young people, the United Nations supports youth’s effort in driving climate action”, said the Sri Lankan-born envoy.Since the launch of the Youth 2030 Strategy, the United Nations has been scaling up global, regional and national actions to meet young people’s needs, realize their rights and tap their possibilities as agents of change.As the Youth Envoy explains, Reboot The Earth is about creating a platform for young people to share their best innovative ideas and solutions with the United Nations, making them equal partners in the global fight against the climate crisis: “Reboot The Earth” presents young people with the opportunity to not only showcase their potential and ideas, but also to be recognized at the United Nations Climate Summit in September 2019”“We’re calling the winners of this year’s hackathon ‘The #ClimateReboot Troops’, and they will be able to collaborate with the United Nations on a long-term project, to work on, and scale up, solutions that will have a real-life impact in communities.” Jayathma Wickramanayake’s office describes the competition as a “global hackathon”, where teams of computer programmers, scientists and others, will try to solve a local climate crisis, that may be unique to each location in line with specific community needs, by creating new software, or improving upon existing programs.The hackathon will take place at United Nations Technology Innovation Labs in five different countries (Malaysia, Finland, India, Egypt and Germany), during August. Through a series of Tech Challenges, one team from each country will be selected to travel to New York City to attend a “Reboot The Earth” awards ceremony, during the UN Climate Summit on September 21.The winner from each country will get the chance to have their solution showcased at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, in January 2020, and the overall winner has the opportunity of seeing their software proposal developed at one of the UN Technology Innovation Labs.This Sept, young ppl will not only bring in their voices, they’ll bring solutions to climate challenges!Join #SummerOfSolutions & Reboot The Earth to present your ideas at the @UN Climate Summit!➡️https://t.co/VKFMdD1EId➡️https://t.co/2UxOWutJA5#ClimateReboot #ClimateAction pic.twitter.com/Q4iKoY5O22— UN Youth Envoy (@UNYouthEnvoy) July 22, 2019
Less than half of Washington’s 3- and 4-year-olds attend preschool of any kind.Just 8 percent of them have access to publicly funded, high-quality prekindergarten.Those are some of the findings from the KIDS COUNT Data Book, published annually by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and released Monday. (The Annie E. Casey Foundation also funds Education Lab.) The report ranks Washington 16th overall among the 50 states for child well-being.About 14 percent of children here live in poverty, about the same percentage as in 1990 and an improvement over 2010, during the aftermath of the recession, when the number was 18 percent. But the number of children growing up in poverty has increased as the state’s population has grown. And child poverty in Washington is disproportionately experienced by children of color.One of the reasons for so many kids in poverty is policy changes and budget cuts the state made to WorkFirst/Temporary Assistance for Needy Families during the recession, said Julie Watts, deputy director of the Washington State Budget and Policy Center, a nonpartisan research and policy organization. The programs, which assist families with young children, are now serving a smaller portion of children in poverty than at any time in their history, she said.Families that have been dropped from the program because of its time-limit policy are disproportionately black and American Indian. Many of the families cut from the program are homeless, or have at least one family member with a severe mental health problem, she said.“We know the outcomes for families are really, really bad when they get kicked off this program,” Watts said. “What’s important to realize is that these are families with young children.” Watts said she and others testified before the Legislature this year to try to boost funding for the program, but were unable to get the cuts restored.

EXCLUSIVE: Emma Codd (pictured), managing partner for talent at professional services organisation Deloitte, will discuss recommendations and practicalities around gender pay gap reporting at Employee Benefits Live 2017.The session, titled ‘Gender pay gap reporting: getting it right’, will form part of the HR strategy conference stream on Tuesday 10 October.During the session, Codd will describe the proactive steps that Deloitte has taken in calculating, publishing and addressing its gender pay gap. She will share recommendations and practical advice based on the organisation’s own reporting experiences, detailing considerations for employers when reporting their organisation’s own gender pay differences.Codd will highlight the advantages of reporting an organisation’s gender pay gap early, providing insights into the practicalities surrounding Deloitte’s two previous gender pay gap reports, as well as sharing the tips learned when compiling its first formal report under gender pay gap reporting regulations this year.She will also emphasise the importance of creating a narrative alongside an organisation’s gender pay gap report, which employers can use to clearly set out and promote the actions or measures they are planning to undertake to tackle any gender pay gaps within the business.She said: “Any successful business is looking to achieve diversity, both from a gender perspective but also other aspects, so social mobility, ethnicity. A balanced workforce is a good workforce and from a gender perspective, the pay gap reporting is one step I believe will start driving more change.“The fact that businesses are now required to be transparent and the fact that for [employees’] future employers and other stakeholders, including their current employers, [staff will] be able to look at what [the organisation is] doing to try and eradicate that gap. That’s a position that we’ve never been in before from a UK perspective.“[Employers should] think carefully about when [they] publish. What’s really important is that [employers] get the narrative right and that the narrative clearly sets out the actions [the organisation is] taking, or going to take, to make sure that [it gets] rid of that gender pay gap. A key take away from my session will be when [employers] do publish, they use the narrative to set out what [they are] going to do, what [employers are already] doing and show that [employers] are actively seeking to address this.”Employee Benefits Live 2017 will take place on Tuesday 10 and Wednesday 11 October at Olympia National, London.For more information or to book your place.
Kaspersky Security Cloud Free review by Martin Brinkmann on August 14, 2018 in Software – Last Update: August 14, 2018 – 13 commentsRussian security firm Kaspersky just launched a new version of Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, a free cloud-based security solution for Windows devices.One question that may come up is how Security Cloud Free differs from Kaspersky’s Free Antivirus solution the company revealed in 2016 and rolled out to a worldwide audience in 2017.The product’s name reveals the core difference between the two free security products. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free, also known as Adaptive Security, gives you remote control and management options that Kaspersky Free Antivirus does not support.Kaspersky notes that Security Cloud gets all new tools and features first before any other product. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free requires a (free) Kaspersky account to use the program whereas Free Antivirus has no such requirement.Kaspersky Security Cloud Free reviewYou are asked to sign in to a Kaspersky account or create a new one on start of the program. In fact, you cannot do anything until you sign in to the account.The program displays a series of screens on first sign in that highlights the program’s core functionality and some of the features reserved to the paid versions.The interface holds no surprises. You can run a scan directly from the startpage or check the recommendations the program has for you.Kaspersky recommended to configure backup and restore which is a feature of the software program, and to install the company’s password manager application and Internet Explorer extension.The backup functionality is basic but sufficient for creating backups of important files on the system. Kaspersky displays options to back up four different file types or locations, and an option to select custom locations for backup.The four available types are:All files in My Documents and on the Desktop.All pictures and photos.All movies and videos.All music files.You can select one of the options only at a time which is a usability issue. The best option that you have is to use the custom folder selector as it supports adding multiple locations to a single backup job.Data can be backed up to a location on the device or online storage space that Kaspersky provides (for a price).Antivirus protection works as you’d expect it to. Kaspersky Security Cloud Free runs automatic scans regularly to find threats and eliminate them. You can run full, quick, and custom scans manually at any time, and schedule scans so that they run based on your preferences.The Password Manager and Secure Connection links work but both features are limited. Kaspersky displays links to two features in the main interface that are not available in the free version.Prompts to upgrade to a paid version are displayed when you select Privacy Protection or Safe Money.The My Tools link opens a new page with a large assortment of tools and information. Some of the tools are reserved for paying customers though.Weak Settings Control — Scans the computer for weak settings such as “file extensions are not displayed for known file types” so that they can be adjusted to improve security.My Kaspersky — Option to open the web interface and to disconnect the installation.Cloud Protection — Checks the connection status and displays stats.Quarantine — Manage quarantined items.Kaspersky Rescue Disk — create a rescue disk so that you can boot into a rescue environment when Windows does not boot anymore.My Network — Paid options to list connected devices in the network and includes network monitoring.Manage Applications — Paid options to check for software updates, control applications and to enable trusted applications mode to allow only trusted programs to run.Data Protection — The file shredder to delete files securely and the on-screen keyboard are available in the free version. Paid versions get scheduled backups, data encryption, and a health monitor for hard drives as well.Clean and optimize — Includes various tools to remove temporary data and improve privacy. PC Cleaner tool reserved for paying customers.Security Cloud Free supports additional features that you find highlighted in the program settings under protection.The app includes network attack blocker, system watcher, instant messenger anti-virus, and mail anti-virus protection. Not mentioned are the new Exploit Prevention feature and ransomware protection.The program works out of the box for the most part. While you can make some modifications, e.g. turn off select protective components, most users probably keep everything as is.The differencesKaspersky Security Cloud Free has limited functionality when compared to the Personal and Family versions. It features antivirus protection and the secure connection feature. The built-in password manager is limited to 15 passwords which makes it unusable for most users.Secure Connection is a VPN service that users of the software may connect to. The free version is good for 200 Megabytes of data per day and lacks paid options such as the selection of regions to connect.Kaspersky may suggest to connect to the VPN automatically based on the device’s connections status. If the device is connected to an Open WiFi network, Kaspersky may suggest to establish a VPN connection using Secure Connection to protect data and improve privacy.Features such as privacy protection, a built-in firewall, family sharing, kids protection, or safe money are reserved for paying customers.Web ManagementOne of the core differences to Free Antivirus is the new web management functionality that Kaspersky baked into Security Cloud Free.You can sign in to your account and manage all devices connected to it. Management includes interesting options such as running full or quick scans, running database updates, or managing components.You get status information, e.g. the product is up to date or “no threats detected”, on top of that.Options to link more devices to an account are provided and the web management interface’s use increases with every device you add to it as it provides you with better manageability options.Criticism and issuesKaspersky Security Cloud Free requires registration and enables remote management of connected devices automatically. Users who dislike the functionality may select Free Antivirus instead which comes without it.It is understandable that Kaspersky wants to earn money from its products but the main interface needs information about the “only in paid version” icon that is displayed on some of the options.Kaspersky highlights what the icon means on the “more tools” page but not on the main page.Kaspersky Labs has been in the news lately because of alleged ties to the Russian government and bans on Kaspersky products for government use in the United States and other regions.Closing Words and verdictKaspersky Security Cloud Free or Kaspersky Free Antivirus? The choice depends on whether you require remote management capabilities or not. The core functionality is nearly identical and while users of Security Cloud Free may get new features before Free Antivirus users, included protective features are mostly identical.Security Cloud is available for Android and iOS as well so that these may be managed from the management interface on the Kaspersky website.Kaspersky is always doing well in tests and Security Cloud Free is no exception to that as it shares protective features with other Kaspersky products. You can check out how Kaspersky products are ranked on AV-Test or AV Comparatives.Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 16 votes Software Name Kaspersky Security Cloud FreeOperating System WindowsSoftware Category SecurityLanding Page https://www.kaspersky.com/downloads Advertisement

The report, conducted by the Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA), demonstrates that imaging use is far less than President Obama’s recommend 95 percent utilization rate.This amount of time imaging equipment is in use in outpatient settings is below the usage rates President Obama and the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) recommend Medicare utilize to calculate reimbursement for imaging. President Obama recently recommended CMS base its reimbursement formula on a 95 percent utilization rate for advanced imaging equipment, while MedPAC suggests a 90 percent utilization rate for equipment that costs more than $1 million.The utilization rate of diagnostic imaging is a critical component of Medicare’s calculation for reimbursements. Increasing the utilization rate above the actual use rates results in cuts imaging reimbursements, which significantly reduce access to diagnostic imaging to patients in rural regions of the country.For more information: www.rbma.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough discusses bridging diversity gaps in medical physicsPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 6:05Loaded: 2.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -6:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

“The way into the middle class for many people, including me, is home ownership” @RepMikeCapuano #UnderConstruction https://t.co/2UrmGMydT9— POLITICO Events (@POLITICOEvents) July 26, 2016 While the two major party presidential candidates have not said much about housing policy in the months leading up to their parties’ respective national conventions, housing is suddenly moving up on the priority list of lawmakers and industry stakeholders.A group of lawmakers, policymakers, and thought leaders gathered in Philadelphia at the Democratic National Convention to discuss housing policy choices facing the next Congress and administration in an event titled “Under Construction: How Will the Next President Remodel Home Lending?” The group included two U.S. Congressmen, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-California) and Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Massachusetts); Anne Fadullon, Director of Planning & Development, City of Philadelphia; and Susan Wachter, Albert Sussman Professor of Real Estate, Professor of Finance, The Wharton School; Co-Director, Penn Institute for Urban Research, University of Pennsylvania.Increasing the U.S. homeownership rate, which is near a five-decade low, was a focal point of the discussion. Wachter tweeted, “24% of 18-24 yr olds are owners & an almost equal % are living at home w their parents..an historic high” and “We don’t have the option of doing nothing. . . Fannie and Freddie are on a timeline to closing.” The capital buffer for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is required to be reduced to zero by January 1, 2018, at which point taxpayers will be on the hook for any losses they may incur if they are still under conservatorship of FHFA. Political Discussions Around Homeownership Heat Up Share July 26, 2016 489 Views Homeownership Housing Policy 2016-07-26 Seth Welborn In order to encourage more first-time buyers to enter the housing market, Sen. Ron Wyden (R-Oregon) earlier this month that would provide first-time buyers with a refundable tax credit equal to 2.5 percent of the home’s purchase price for homes purchased for less than $600,000 (maximum credit of $10,000).Participants in the discussion were skeptical of this, however. Sherman tweeted about Wyden’s proposal, “To GOP ‘Tax credit to accomplish the same goal is a smaller sin’ than ‘spending money to help people.’” Nevertheless, he said, increasing the homeownership rate is critical, because “The way into the middle class for many people, including me, is homeownership.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News “24% of 18-24 yr olds are owners & an almost equal % are living at home w their parents..an historic high” @Susan_Wachter #UnderConstruction— POLITICO Events (@POLITICOEvents) July 26, 2016Mortgage rates hovering above record low levels are helping the homeownership rate somewhat, but housing has been constrained by consistently low inventory.
