Latina media dynamo and women’s empowerment advocate Nely Galán, dubbed the “Tropical Tycoon” by The New York Times Magazine, is one of the entertainment industry’s savviest firebrand talents. A Cuban immigrant and self-made media mogul, Galán was the first Latina President of Entertainment for a U.S. television network (Telemundo). She is an Emmy Award-winning producer of more than 600 episodes of television in Spanish and English, including the FOX hit reality series “The Swan.”

After becoming self-made on her own terms, Galán has made it her mission to teach women—regardless of age or background—how they, too, can become entrepreneurs. She founded, The Adelante Movement presented by Coca-Cola, an organization that unites and empowers Latinas economically and entrepreneurially. In addition, she authored the NY Times bestseller, Self Made: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way, written to unite all women on a quest for an economic future they control.

“I realized that my most meaningful success has come from financial self-reliance, and I wanted to teach that to other women. In 2012, I started a nonprofit, Adelante, a live event and digital learning platform that empowers and trains women in entrepreneurship. In Spanish, adelante means ‘Move it! Now! Let’s go!’”, said Galán. “This WFF and Coca-Cola hosted seminar on April 2 will capture the true meaning of self-made. I am self-made and want all women to become self-made too, achieving their own economic independence and living a rich life in every way.”

Renowned speaker and author Simon T. Bailey is the leader of the “brilliance” movement – helping more than 1 million people find their brilliance, shift their thinking and produce sustainable results. His team recently introduced the Shift Your Brilliance System® that teaches individuals and organizations how to create meaningful results in the new economy. A percentage of the proceeds from the Shift Your Brilliance System® benefit the U.S. Dream Academy, a non-profit organization that believes a child with a dream is a child with a future.

“Shift Your Brilliance happens when you find your own individual spark. This sets in motion a series of events, circumstances, situations, and chance encounters that empower you to make a positive impact on the world,” said Bailey. “Shifting your thinking will allow you to get to the next level in your career. This event will help everyone move forward brilliantly.”

“I am committed to supporting WFF on its strategic mission to develop and advance women in the food industry. This is the ‘industry of opportunity’ and a great place to start and end your career,” said Hattie Hill, President & CEO of WFF.

“The keynote speakers and panel at the WFF Becoming Self Made in the Food Industry Brunch & Learn will provide economic empowerment solutions for entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses.”

WFF is the food industry’s premier leadership development organization whose mission is to advance women to the C-suite and onto the boards of companies operating in the food industry ecosystem, the second largest private industry in the United States. Statistics prove that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity and inclusion are 15% more likely to have financial returns above the national median for their industry.

The Becoming Self Made in the Food Industry Brunch & Learn event is co-hosted by WFF and Coca-Cola, on behalf of Coca-Cola’s 5by20 initiative to enable the economic empowerment of 5 million women entrepreneurs by the year 2020. In April 2016, The Coca-Cola Company announced that its 5by20 initiative had reached a major milestone, impacting 1.2 million women across 60 countries since its launch in late 2010.

Has America Reached The End Game In The For-Profit Health Care Model?

As we witness the downfall of the Affordable Care Act the question that needs to be asked is whether the health care model currently in place is sustainable.

If the endless debates continue, we will slowly witness the death spiral of Health Insurance companies. Without a plan in place, many Americans will eventually be without Health Care.”

— Patrick Mansfield

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, March 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Has America Reached The End Game In The For-Profit Health Care Model?

As we witness the downfall of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the question that needs to be asked is whether the U.S. health care model currently in place is sustainable. We have created a for-profit system that now consumes 17.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Health care cost is bankrupting the private and public sector of the American economy. What is the cause of this crisis?

The Cost Of Becoming A Doctor

The average four-year cost for medical school including books and tuition is $278,455 for private schools and $207,866 for public schools. Then you must add the loss of income that medical school students miss out on. For example, instead of being part of the workforce and earning money, medical school students are having to pay almost a quarter million dollars for tuition.

The Negative Effect Of The High Cost Of Medical School

The cost of medical school keeps many potential students from becoming Doctors.
Due to a high debt load, and a limited supply of Doctors, A General Practitioner’s Salary in the United States is the highest in the World.

The Cost Of Receiving Health Care In The United States

If you become sick in the United States, the cost of treatment will far exceed the cost that other industrialized countries pay for treatment. Since we are the only industrialized country that mostly relies on health insurance for providing care, the United States lacks the bargaining power that all other industrialized countries can take advantage of. For example, because England has a universal health care model, they can bargain with companies the cost they are willing to pay for treatment.

How Health Insurance Contributes To The Cost Of Health Care In The United States

Because health insurance companies need to make a profit to stay in business, they need to monitor their risk for potential losses. This is the main reason why the Affordable Care Act is failing Americans. Most experts agree that the insurance companies that are in the Health Insurance marketplace are in the beginning stages of a death spiral (death spiral for an Insurance company happen when claims being payed exceed premiums being collected, which eventually leads to insolvency). To prevent a death spiral, an insurance company needs to raise premiums and deductibles to support this model. Eventually people will refuse to pay the premiums and will leave the market.

Non-Punitive Mandatory Pre-Existing Coverage; The Elephant In The Room

The Insurance business model works only when risk is pooled so that any losses can be covered by the premiums collected in the pool are paid to cover the loss. The health insurance business model does not work when insurance companies are forced to accept pre-existing conditions without charging for the increased risk. For example, let’s say you are looking to buy a homeowner’s insurance policy and you tell the insurance company that your house will burn down after the coverage is in force. You would be denied coverage.

The Cost Of Health Care Has Exceeded The Affordability Level To Cover The Majority Of Americans

Because of the high cost of treatment, we are now realizing that the private health insurance is not working. If you remove the subsidies provided in the Affordable Care Act, most Americans would simply not be able to pay their premiums. But not only are we looking at higher premiums, but the deductibles are rising as well. So even if you have health insurance, you may not be able to afford to actually use the service.

The Fix

Health care is a very complicated public policy even without having health insurance as the main source of providing health care. As a country, we have created an unsustainable health care system. There is no easy fix, but we need to start thinking of alternative health care policy that removes health insurance as the main provider of health care in The United States. The fix needs to start from the root of the problem, the cost of medical school.

The Fix – The High Cost Of Medical School.

Fund Medical Schools Grants So We Can Increase Enrollment.
Hold Medical Schools Accountable For The High Cost Of Tuition. If Medical Schools Accept Public Funding, Then The Government Should Put Caps On Tuition. One needs to ask; Where Does The Money Go?

The Fix – Invest In Artificial Intelligence (AI) For Providing Care.

AI technology Is At The Early Stages Of Providing Health Care. A Good Example Would Be A Symptom Checker That Incorporates Established Algorithms In Providing Responses.

The Fix – Providing An Option For A Single Payer System (Universal Health Care).

Not All Americans Can Afford The Most Expensive Car, Our House. These Are The Natural Outcomes Of A Capitalist Model. We Need To Provide Health Care For Those That Are Priced Out Of The Health Insurance Market.

Americans Need To Have The Option Of At The Very Least Of Being Provided With Basic Care.
Increase The Medicare Tax To Fund A Single Payer System. Most Americans Would Be Better Off Paying 4% More in Medicare Tax, Than Paying $1200 Monthly Premiums For An Insurance Policy With A $12,000 Deductible.

The cost of health care is slowly bankrupting the United States. Both Republicans and Democrats need to come together to help fix this problem. If the endless debates continue we will slowly witness the death spiral of Health Insurance companies. Without a plan in place, many Americans will eventually be without Health Care.

Analysis indicates N.Y.Times Magazine has surplus of editors, says Leslie Norins, veteran publisher

Study of 18 issues, (1,352 pages) of Sunday Times Magazine questions need for 30 "text" editors for 16 text pages per weekly issue.

Analysis of 1,352 Times Magazine pages indicates up to 28 of 30 "text and word" editors may be surplus”

— Dr.Leslie Norins, 40-year publishing veteran

NAPLES, FLORIDA, USA, March 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A detailed analysis of 18 weekly issues (1,352 total pages) of the New York Times Sunday Magazine indicates it likely has a surplus of editors, says Leslie Norins, MD, PhD, a 40-year veteran publisher of newsletters for healthcare professionals. His study is published on Analizir.com (www.Analizir.com).

Dr. Norins, who says he has been a “loyal subscriber” to the Times for four decades, said his curiosity was aroused in the summer of 2016, when he read of staff cutbacks at the Times, but noticed that the number of names in the masthead (the listing of key staff) of his Magazine issue seemed high. He decided to gather data, and collected weekly issues until the end of 2016., eighteen in all.

The final issue analyzed, December 25th, had 66 pages, and 46 “editors” were displayed in its masthead. There were 30 “editors” who could examine text, plus 13 photography/art/design editors, and 3 production editors.

Of the 1,352 pages of the accumulated issues, Dr. Norins classified 578 as “long article” pages. But not all these needed text-editing, because 294 were taken up by photos or graphics—which have their own editors. That left 284 pages of text to be edited. Dividing this by the 18 issues yielded an average 15.7 pages of “long article” text to be edited per weekly issue.

Thus, in a 40-hour work week a lone editor could spend up to 2.5 hours editing each “long article” text page, and single-handedly prepare that portion of the weekly issue. So, he asks, why are there 30 editors who can work with text?

Dr. Norins believes that all Times staff are professional, but theorizes their time has been usurped by creeping distractions and excessive deliberations. He also cites Parkinson’s Law: “Work expands to fill the time allocated for its completion”.

Dr. Norins concludes by proposing a zero-based budgeting scenario, wherein the Magazine is restructured to utilize only a “Magnificent Seven” of staff.

Dr. Leslie Norins has a 40-year medical publishing career, successfully creating and growing over 80 subscription newsletters. He received his AB from Johns Hopkins University, his MD from Duke Medical School, and his PhD from University of Melbourne, where he trained with Sir Macfarlane Burnet, Nobel Prize-winner.

Analizer.com (www.Analizir.com) is an independent website presenting analysis and commentary, and is a unit of Medvostat, LLC. Dr. Norins is its founder and publisher.

Penn State food lab launches Allinfoodz podcast featuring food narratives

Most people think about food frequently during any given day.”

— Amit Sharma, assoc. prof., hosp. mgmt., dir., Food Decisions Research Lab.

UNIVERSITY PARK, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, March 7, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Food sustains life and is central in cultures around the world. Now, food is the focal point of a new podcast series developed by the Food Decisions Research Laboratory ( http://hhd.psu.edu/shm/Food-Decisions ) at Penn State and facilitators are seeking contributors from the community at large.

To listen to the Allinfoodz podcast series and be part of the conversation, visit: http://hhd.psu.edu/shm/Food-Decisions/Allinfoodz
. To register to share your personal story about food, email Amit Sharma at aus22@psu.edu .

Each episode of Allinfoodz is a first-person account of how food has impacted the narrator’s life. Undergraduate students, graduate students, the director of the School of Hospitality Management, the dean of the College of Health and Human Development at Penn State and other members of the Penn State community have already shared personal food-related stories as part of a larger dialogue about food.

The series covers a variety of food-related topics, that in totality begins to answer one core question: How do we choose what to eat, where, with whom, and when?

“Most people think about food frequently during any given day. There are often underlying reasons that might drive how we think of food, and therefore how we make our food choices and decisions,” said Amit Sharma, associate professor of hospitality management and director of the Food Decisions Research Laboratory at Penn State.

“The mission of Allinfoodz is to share our values connected to food and showcase what we think about food, so that we may learn about food choices and decisions from each other, in an open-minded and thoughtful manner, respectful of everyone regardless of our backgrounds,” Sharma said.

Allinfoodz provides a space for anyone to share with others varied and all-inclusive food stories, narratives and experiences. The podcast series and website document and share food stories, community events around food talk, and expert evidence from research in food decisions.

“All In at Penn State: A Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion," ( http://allin.psu.edu/ ) is an ongoing University-wide initiative for bringing students, faculty and staff together to show their commitment to cultivating a diverse and inclusive environment and inspiring action and conversations.

CFES STEM Week in the Adirondacks featured a broad range of interactive activities with healthcare professionals, business leaders and student mentors. College and business representatives also discussed higher education and career options.

“CFES STEM week offers opportunities for over two thousand rural students from Adirondack K-12 schools to see what STEM careers are and hear how to pursue them on the college pathway,” said Rick Dalton, CEO and president of College For Every Student. “With this firsthand knowledge and experience, students begin setting STEM career goals.”

Introducing the week with a live chat from Saranac High School, trauma surgeon Dr. John Fortune of the University of Vermont Medical Center spoke with students about the array of career options in the healthcare field and what it takes to become a healthcare professional. He said: “It’s going to be tough, but all of you in this room can do it, because with commitment and with hard drive — with grit as they say at College For Every Student — the challenges can be overcome and you can enter this very gratifying healthcare profession.”

On March 2 and 3, a sense of accomplishment pervaded the CFES Center in Essex as students from six Adirondack schools gathered for hands-on learning and problem-solving in robotics workshops led by faculty and cadets from the United States Military Academy at West Point. Students, collaborating with peers from different schools, applied engineering principles, current technology and their math skills to create codes and program robots. The day ended with a competition where students saw the impact of their efforts as they instructed their robots to navigate a preset path.

Also during the week, healthcare specialists interacted with CFES Scholars (students in the CFES Program) at a college and career healthcare fair hosted in Plattsburgh by CFES and the University of Vermont Health Network—Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH). Demonstrations from EMT of CVPH, the School of Radiology, the Laboratory and other hospital departments and services showed students how medical equipment works and the health conditions these professionals treat. In addition, representatives from North Country Community College, Clinton Community College, SUNY Plattsburgh and CV-TEC offered information about STEM career options and pathways.

At a separate event, student mentors who were trained through the CFES Program, joined business leaders to conduct a series of STEM-learning activities at Ticonderoga Middle School. Stephen Gratto, superintendent of the Schroon Lake Central School District, opened the day with a fun physics exercise — balancing a chair on his chin. A representative from International Paper explained and demonstrated the workings of a standard pump in the paper-making process, and environmental educators from the Lake George Association demonstrated water filtration methods. Ticonderoga high school mentors led several STEM sessions, including one where students built freestanding structures, as tall as possible, with 20 pieces of spaghetti, one yard of masking tape, and one marshmallow — on top.

Urban Refugee Children Face Extra Hurdles in Attending School: Teachers College Study

The Teachers College study found overcrowding of schools and lack of transportation as the major obstacles to urban refugee children attending school

The Teachers College report recommends five steps for improving refugee education

As a majority of the world’s displaced people settle in urban areas, TC researchers recommend ways to improve access to education for urban refugees

Most countries allow urban refugees to go to school, but national and local governments lack the capacity to monitor quality and make information about policies available at the local level.”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 7, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The increasing urbanization of the world’s refugees presents unique obstacles to refugee children attempting to attend local schools, despite their right to do so, according to the first-ever global study of urban refugee education, released today by Teachers College, Columbia University. The report exposes a gap between policy and practice when it comes to ensuring access of displaced children to educational services in urban settings.

An executive summary and the full policy report, “Urban Refugee Education: Strengthening Policies and Practices for Access, Quality, and Inclusion,” are available at TC.edu/URE2017.

The world community must uphold its collective responsibility to help children and youth who have fled regions affected by armed conflict, go to and stay in school,” said Mary Mendenhall, the Assistant Professor of Practice in the International and Comparative Education program at Teachers College who led the study. “By ignoring this responsibility, we risk losing yet another generation of children to illiteracy, ignorance, poverty, and the need to turn toward desperate and extreme solutions to meet their basic needs.”

According to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the forcible displacement of individuals and families from their homes has grown at an unprecedented rate in the past two decades, reaching more than 65 million in 2016—a number not seen since right after World War II. Of that number, 60 percent are spread across urban areas rather than clustered in camps, UNHCR figures show.

“The emblematic image of refugees living in camps is no longer the norm,” write Mendenhall and study co-authors at Teachers College, S. Garnett Russell, Assistant Professor of International and Comparative Education; and Elizabeth Buckner, Visiting Assistant Professor of International and Comparative Education. They surveyed 190 respondents working for UN agencies, and international and national non-governmental organizations (NGOs), in 16 countries across the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia. They did additional, in-depth case studies in Nairobi, Kenya; Beirut, Lebanon; and Quito, Ecuador, interviewing more than 90 respondents.

Refugees have a right to attend school in their host communities, according to the United Nations Refugee Convention and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. But the researchers found that the trend toward living independently, dispersed and embedded across dense metropolitan areas, makes child refugees vulnerable to the same problems faced by urban poor and marginalized children in attending school, including over-crowded local schools, lack of learning resources and trained teachers, and lack of proximity and safe transportation to and from school.

Among 65 million displaced adults and children, 21 million refugees who have crossed national borders have additional challenges. In addition to language barriers, urban refugees from other countries “often live in vulnerable situations and are subject to violence, discrimination, xenophobia, exploitation, sexual and gender-based violence, human trafficking, and forced repatriation to their home countries”—any one of which could make it difficult to attend school, the report says.

According to the UNHCR, about half of all refugees are under 18 years old, including large numbers of unaccompanied minors. Half of all elementary school-age refugee children, and 22 percent of secondary-school-age children, have access to school, while only one percent of all refugees have access to higher education.

And because global conflicts are lasting longer, the average duration of displacement for refugees now exceeds 20 years, suggesting that entire generations of refugee children will grow to adulthood without education or skills to support themselves, the authors note.

They found that, while the majority of the countries they studied “have relatively inclusive national policies that allow urban refugees to go to school, national and local governments lack the capacity to monitor educational quality and make information about policies available at the local level.” In addition, autonomy of local education and government authorities allows for “nonexistent, unclear or contradictory policies” at the local level, as well as “shifting and volatile policy environments, and misalignment between and across government offices.”

To improve access to education by displaced children in urban environments, the authors recommend better coordination between local, national and international organizations involved in educating refugee children, and fully integrating and including refugee students into local and national schools. Education programs that benefit both the refugee and host communities will encourage host communities to be more welcoming of refugee students, the report says.

In addition to increasing access to formal schooling, the authors write that “civil society organizations need to support the provision of non-formal education programs to fill the needs and gaps not met by government schools,” such as “psychological and social issues, skills development, language support, combatting discrimination and xenophobia, and academic support for lost years of schooling.”

The study was funded by the State Department Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.

Apollo Publications can connect thousands of potential readers to your book quickly and cost effetely, even if Apollo did not publish your book

The original self-publishing company I used was nothing more than a printer. Apollo helped me sell my book!”

NAPERVILLE, IL, USA, March 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Apollo Publications can connect thousands of potential readers to your book quickly and cost effetely. Whether you had Apollo publish your book or not we have the most cost-effective way to promote your book.

Apollo Publications is taking a whole new approach to promoting books. Traditional and online bookstores use the outdated sales techniques, of putting a book on a shelf or on a website and wait for someone to browse to it. The more popular authors are moved to the front or put in a special section. Self-publishers never have a way to stick out in the crowd, and as a result, self-publishers rarely sell many copies of their books. Apollo has developed an active marketing solution for self-publishers, putting their work in front of thousands of potential readers.

Online distributers will share information about your book. They will add your book to a database featuring a few hundred thousand other titles. The chances of a reader actually finding your book are very slim. Apollo Publications can actively put your book in front of thousands of potential readers. Apollo uses data mining to look for readers who have interests matching your book’s subject matter. If you write a book about hiking, we will look for individuals who like to hike or have purchased products related to hiking. We show titles of books about cats to cat enthusiasts.

Our new active marketing solution finds potential readers and connects them to your book. Not everyone who goes to a bookstore is interested in every subject on display. Our new approach enables self-publishers to quickly and cost effectively get their titles to the masses. It truly levels the playing field for self-publishers.

To display your book to the first 20,000 potential readers, the cost is $399.95, only $199.95 if you self-publish with us, free if we publish your book. This price covers getting your account setup, the creation of an ad, and displaying your book. We will also post a summary of your book; include a short bio about you, the author; and even add your book to our marketplace if you want people to be able to purchase it directly from our site. Otherwise, we can provide a link to another site for purchases. Authors receive an 80% royalty for every book sold through our marketplace.

Once your account has been set up, the cost is only $149.00 for every 20,000 views. It can take anywhere from 48 hours to 4 weeks to process all 20,000 views depending on your book’s subject matter. We look for websites that have keywords matching your book’s subject. When someone visits a relevant site, your book will be displayed. We track your views and can see when and where people have shown interest in your book. At the end of your marketing campaign we will send you a complete report.
