Bernie Sanders, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. The debate was moderated by “Face the Nation’s” John Dickerson, Nancy Cordes of CBS, Kathie Obradovich of the Des Moines Register, and Kevin Cooney.While many expected the debate to focus on domestic policy, the recent terrorist attack in Paris spurred conversation to take a foreign policy turn at the start of the debate, with each candidate commenting on the recent event, according to a transcription of the Democratic debate provided by The Washington Post.Sen. Bernie SandersThe Democrats then went on to discuss the “financial squeeze on the middle class,” where Sen. Sanders proposed that “there must be a tax on Wall Street speculation,” and since taxpayers have already bailed out Wall Street, it their turn to bail out the middle class.Dickerson alluded to a quote that was recently said by Sen. Sanders, “People should be suspect of candidates who receive large sums of money from Wall Street and then go out and say ‘Trust me. I’m going to really regulate wall street’.”Sen. Sanders added in the debate, “I don’t know and with all due respect to the secretary, Wall Street played by the rules? Who are we kidding? The business model of Wall Street is fraud. That’s what it is.”The major issue on Wall Street, according to Sen. Sanders, is that six financial institutions have assets of 56 percent, equivalent to 56 percent of the GDP In America, and they issue two-thirds of the credit cards and one-third of the mortgages.Hillary ClintonClinton noted that she introduced legislation to reign in compensation and looked at ways that the shareholders would have more control over what was going on in that arena. She also “specifically said to Wall Street, that what they were doing in the mortgage market was bringing our country down. I’ve laid out a very aggressive plan to reign in Wall Street—not just the big banks.”As the only democratic candidate without a super PAC, Sen. Sanders mentioned that he is not asking Wall Street or the billionaires for money. He then presented a plan from the past to reinvigorate the banking industry in America.”If Teddy Roosevelt, a good Republican, were alive today, you know what he’d say? “Break them up.” Reestablish Glass-Steagall. And Teddy Roosevelt is right. That is the issue. I will break up these banks. Support community banks and credit unions. That’s the future of banking in America,” Sen. Sanders explained.O’Malley had very little to add to the Sanders-Clinton fire, but agreed with Sen. Sanders approach to Wall Street.Martin O’Malley”Our economy was wrecked by the big banks of Wall Street,” O’Malley said. “And Secretary Clinton, when you put out your proposal on Wall Street, it was greeted by many as, quote, unquote, “weak tea.” It is weak tea. It is not what the people expect of our country.”He continued, “We expect that our president will protect the main street economy from excesses on Wall Street. And that’s why Bernie’s right. We need to reinstate a modern version of Glass-Steagall and we should have done it already,” O’Malley concluded.Clinton could not fully commit to reinstating Glass-Steagall, but did not completely rule it out, noting that “it is a part of what very well could help, but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective, and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall Street not just the big banks.””So I’ve said, if the big banks don’t play by the rules, I will break them up,” Clinton stated. “And I will also go after executives who are responsible for the decisions that have such bad consequences for our country. There are a lot of things we’ve got to do in our country, reigning in Wall Street is certainly one of them.”Click here to view the Washington Post’s full transcription of the debate.

House panel passes CHOICE Act with Durbin repeal

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The House Financial Services Committee on Thursday voted along party lines to pass the Financial CHOICE Act (H.R. 10). The bill, approved on a vote of 34-26, still contains the NAFCU-backed provision for repeal of the Durbin interchange amendment.“Passage of the Financial CHOICE Act is an important step toward creating a regulatory environment where the nation’s credit unions can thrive. NAFCU thanks committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, for introducing this important legislation,” said NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger. “NAFCU supports many provisions of this bill, but one of the most significant is the repeal of the failed Durbin interchange amendment. We urge lawmakers to see this bill through, including the repeal of this government interference that harms consumers.”“NAFCU will continue its work with members of Congress to create a better regulatory environment for the credit union industry,” Berger added.In addition to Durbin amendment repeal, the committee-approved CHOICE Act contains numerous other NAFCU-sought measures, including one requiring regulatory agencies to improve their cost-benefit analyses and better tailor regulations to the size of regulated institutions. It would also, as urged by NAFCU, preserve the NCUA Board’s current three-member structure and mandate agency budget transparency. continue reading »last_img read more

Seacom cable ‘online in July’

first_imgShareholders in the US$650-million (about R5.1-billion) cable include US-based Herakles Telecom (with a 25% stake), Kenya’s Industrial Promotion Services (25%), and Venfin (25%), as well as empowerment groups Convergence Partners (12.5%) and Shanduka (12.5%) from South Africa – making the cable 75% African owned. In addition, Seacom is working closely with landlocked countries to ensure that inland networks are built so they also benefit from the arrival of cheaper bandwidth. The cable’s current backhaul solutions cover Johannesburg, Kampala, Kigali and Nairobi. Lower telecoms costs The entire system will be operated and controlled through Seacom’s network operations centre, which is based in Pune, India. Testing is currently under way, and the system is set to go live in July. These include the branching units and shore-ends necessary to direct the traffic to the landing stations across eastern and southern Africa. All cable landing stations have also been completed and are operational. Critical portions of the 15 000km Seacom undersea fibre-optic data cable linking southern and east Africa, Europe and south Asia, and its associated land-based infrastructure, have been completed on schedule. 1 June 2009 In a little over a month, southern and eastern Africa will finally get truly connected to international broadband networks, Seacom says, adding that plentiful and readily available bandwidth will result in lower telecommunications costs and new opportunities across many sectors, including the call centre and business process outsourcing industries. “With the system substantially completed and testing under way, we are one step closer to delivering on our commitment and become the first project to provide eastern and southern African retail carriers with equal and open access to inexpensive bandwidth,” said Herlihy. Connecting southern and eastern Africa to the rest of the world is the most important aspect of the project, and the finalisation of the agreement with Interoute and Tata truly will enable the cable’s customers to connect to the global fibre network via a myriad of routes across all major European hubs and onwards to North America and the Middle East and Asia. Connecting Africa to the world Other life-enhancing disciplines such as educational, clinical and scientific research, which rely on the real-time sharing of data around the world, will also become a reality for many African organisations. “The team has made tremendous progress over the past couple of months and we are truly excited to finally have the finish line in sight,” Seacom CEO Brian Herlihy said in a statement last week.

Govt vows to crack down on violence

first_img14 September 2012 South Africa’s law enforcement agencies will no longer tolerate violence, illegal gatherings or the carrying of dangerous weapons, particularly in the country’s mining sector, government ministers have warned. Forty-four people were killed, including two police officers, during clashes between striking Lonmin platinum mine workers and the police in Marikana, North West province last month. President Jacob Zuma has appointed a judicial commission of inquiry to probe the incident. The government was concerned about the spread of violence, threats and intimidation in the mining sector, and would implement measures to curb the situation, Justice Minister Jeff Radebe said in Pretoria on Friday. Briefing the media on behalf of the government’s justice, crime prevention and security cluster, Radebe said the ministers responsible for South Africa’s security had met and reflected on the situation prevailing in the industry. Acts of violence and intimidation undermined economic and security stability, and if the situation continued unabated, it would make it even harder to overcome the challenges of slow economic growth, high unemployment, poverty and inequality in the country. The government would “not tolerate these acts any further,” Radebe said, and had “put measures in place to ensure that the current situation is brought under control.” These included effectively dealing with illegal gatherings, the carrying of dangerous weapons, incitement and threats of violence. The law enforcement agencies would not hesitate to arrest those who broke the law, Radebe warned. “Government is making a clarion call to all South Africans to desist from these illegal acts and work with the law enforcement agencies to ensure that the situation is brought to normality.” Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa did not rule out the possibility that more police officers would be deployed to troubled areas. “We will do everything possible in the Constitution to ensure that normalcy prevails in those areas,” Mthethwa said. Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said that if the instability and low production on South Africa’s mines continued, the cost would be noted be in terms of the country’s overall economic growth numbers. South Africa’s current account deficit would also be affected, as would employment. “Everybody in South Africa has a responsibility to ensure that we boost the confidence in our economy and our country,” Gordhan said. “What we say, what we do, the violent acts we engage in, the incitement … of violence, undermines confidence in the South African economy, and if we undermine confidence, we undermine investment, both from South Africans and foreigners.” Talks with the mining industry were ongoing, Minister of Mineral Resources Susan Shabangu said. “We are engaging with the mining industry on a regular basis … All of us are … concerned [about] its impact on the economy, its impact on the workers, so we will continue to engage in a way that will make sure we find stability very soon,” Shabangu said.

How the Virtual Reality Technology is Transforming the Healthcare Industry

first_imgHow a Modern Gaming Engine Can Supercharge Your… Tags:#Healthcare#virtual reality How AR and VR Will Enhance Customer Experience Dr. Michael is the CEO of the Los Angeles-based blockchain education company LiveEdu. It’s the world’s leading project learning platform that equips people with practical skills on creating complete products in future technological fields. Dr. Michael Garbade Related Posts Few Industries will not be Transformed by AR an… The use of immersive technologies has revolutionized various industries globally, and the health sector has not being an exception. In the past, virtual reality (VR) was commonly associated with gaming companies where users would use VR headsets for multi-projected environments.Mechasparrow, who teaches people how to use the VR technology to extend the functionalities of applications, says that “today, the three-dimensional simulation allows users in all industries to experience a real environment as they manipulate the physical surroundings they are in.”Both patients and physicians are in a position to enjoy the existing and potential benefits that result from the implementation of virtual reality technology in healthcare.This technology is transforming the operating environment of the medical field with its advanced applications in the following areas.1. Medical TrainingOver the years, surgical procedures have been known to be time-consuming, for obvious reasons.The delicate nature of surgeries requires that surgeons become meticulous and keen while the patients are on the operating table, lest they put their lives at risk. And while at it, surgeons in training are expected to practice and execute real surgeries on patients under the supervision of assisting senior doctors.To speed up the training processes, the virtual reality technology comes in handy. It allows the trainees to increase their hours of practice as they are able to cover bigger proportions of surgical procedures without fear of risk on real patients.For example, students at Stanford University School of Medicine are already utilizing the innovative Stanford Virtual Heart to revamp education on congenital heart diseases. Students at the University have reported that virtual reality is the most enthralling technique of grasping complicated concepts in anatomy, far exceeding the traditional teaching methods. 2. Phobia TherapyPatients suffering from paranoia need a fully controlled environment to help them manage their fears. Virtual reality provides an avenue for doctors to offer exposure therapy to such patients. While in their physical surroundings, the VR headphones provide a seemingly calm experience for the patients through a controlled and monitored environment that appears to be real.3. Treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)Soldiers who have been in combat are likely to suffer from a disorder as a result of the trauma they faced. Nonetheless, the post-traumatic stress disorder is not limited to soldiers. The mental disorder can affect anyone who has faced any petrifying experience such as physical or mental abuse, sexual assault, and road accidents.The virtual reality technology is used in the medical field to create immersive scenes that triggers a patient’s fears and help them relive the painful experiences before they are assisted to cope with those situations. The medical professionals usually use the seemingly realistic scenes to treat the PTSD and anxiety while assuring the patients that they are far from harm and are now in a safer environment.4. Training on Social Cognition Autism is a developmental disorder that impairs the social relations of patients and how they reason and interact with others. One of the ways through which the medical sector deals with autistic persons is developing programs such as the social cognition training to monitor the brain wave of patients. This is achieved using the virtual reality technology which boosts their brain imaging by placing the patients in different social scenarios, giving them social cues and helping them understand different social patterns. The VR headsets boost the brain activity of autistic people and help them to develop acceptable social behavior.5. Pain ReliefVR technology has been widely embraced in the medical field for pain management in patients undergoing overwhelming treatments.In situations where patients experience extreme pain such as cancer and physiotherapy treatments, burns, open wounds, and broken limbs, there is a need for a distraction in the brain.This helps in confusing the pain pathway that leads to the brain, which minimizes the excruciating experiences.For example, virtual reality games act as a good distraction as they draw the patient’s mind away from the pain points.6. Patient RelaxationChronic medical conditions tend to confine patients to the hospital, rendering them bedridden. The experience can be torturous mentally since the patients have to live life from their beds with medical teams helping them perform the most basic functions. But, they don’t have to see life from that one angle. Virtual reality enables bed-ridden patients to see the world from a different light. They are able to relax and visit a seemingly real external world from their rooms and have experiences taking long walks or riding bicycles like they would if they were not confined to a bed.7. Anxiety TreatmentGeneral anxiety attacks results in patients feeling an overwhelming sense of panic and distress such as the ground being swept away beneath their feet. Medical professionals usually recommend mediation and reflection as a form of treatment as it helps in checking, monitoring, and controlling a patient’s breathing. To improve breathing patterns, physicians usually use functional apps integrated with the virtual reality technology for monitoring and controlling the regularity of a patient’s breath before administering proper anxiety treatment.8. Management of Phantom Limb Pain (PLP)People who have lost a limb or have had their limbs amputated tend to suffer from a localized sensation around the area that is missing the limb. It also happens to people who have prosthetic limbs attached to their bodies, leading to excruciating pains and a lot of discomfort. With virtual reality, the healthcare industry is able to help patients manage the Phantom Limb pain (PLP) using VR games that help them relieve the pain and control their limbs.9. Therapy for the Differently-AbledDifferently-abled people should not be stopped from experiencing the thrills of the outside world because of their physical conditions. Virtual reality in the health sector improves their quality of life by allowing them to experience different environments that appear seemingly real from where they are. For example, a person bound to a wheelchair can take a walk on a beach or go scuba diving using the three-dimensional simulation.Wrapping upThe numerous benefits of virtual reality in the medical field has prompted medical experts to rapidly integrate the technology in several healthcare solutions. The amazing virtual reality technology offers fascinating opportunities in medicine and it has limitless potential in making physician and patient experiences more bearable.
