first_imgThe province is expanding two continuing care programs to give more seniors the support they need to stay in their homes and communities longer. Premier Darrell Dexter announced today, Feb. 6, the province has changed the Supportive Care and Personal Alert Assistance programs to help more Nova Scotians, mostly seniors, receive the care they need at home. “No one wants to see a loved one forced to give up his or her independence,” Premier Darrell Dexter said. “We heard from many families who told us that, with a little extra support, their loved ones could stay in their homes longer and still live independently. “We are ensuring these programs actually get to those who need them. These changes mean it will be easier to qualify for home care programs and more Nova Scotians will get the support they need to stay in their homes and communities longer.” Both programs are campaign commitments and were launched in 2011. Changes to the programs are effective immediately. The Supportive Care Program helps people who have difficulty remembering and concentrating. Eligible recipients receive $500 per month for home support services such as respite and personal care and meal preparation. People with low incomes can also be reimbursed up to $495 per year for snow removal. “This extra support helps families rest a little easier,” said Premier Dexter. “By focusing on home care and other support services, government is helping seniors live their lives with grace and dignity, close to their family and friends.” The Personal Alert Program provides up to $480 a year to low-income seniors who live alone and have a history of falls, to buy a personal alert system. Tom MacNeil, district manager for seniors programs with the Annapolis Valley District Health Authority, works with many people who need supports and services to live independently. “We need to think differently and look for innovative solutions, and the changes announced today are good steps in that direction,” Mr. MacNeil said. “The personal alert system has the potential not only to help people, but is a cost-effective investment in our health-care system.” Continuing care services are available to all Nova Scotians who require ongoing care, for short or longer terms. Services range from home care supports and specialized equipment, to beds in nursing homes. These services are provided in a client’s home, a residential care facility or a nursing home. More information about Continuing Care is available at To apply for the program or for more information call 1-800-225-7225, toll-free.last_img read more

first_img “Every megawatt of energy produced through the COMFIT program results in $2 million to $3 million of economic activity in the local community, so we’re very pleased to create the right conditions for these investments,” said Mr. Parker. “The two larger wind projects will result in $200 million in new investment and create good paying jobs. Together, these projects will help stabilize electricity prices in Nova Scotia and help the environment.” Allan Webber, warden of the Municipality of the District of Chester, said the area supports the province’s move towards cleaner energy sources. “The provincial government’s community feed-in tariff program provides us with a way to support the cleaner energy goals established by the province and also provides a mechanism for our municipality to generate additional revenue over time for the benefit of our constituents,” said Mr. Webber. “In Lunenburg County, we welcome the opportunity to generate and distribute electricity closer to home, while creating economic development opportunities and protecting the environment,” said Don Downe, mayor of the Municipality of Lunenburg. “We commend the province for their efforts in this area.” Mr. Parker and Energy deputy minister Murray Coolican also provided information and an overview of the Muskrat Falls/Maritime Link project. “This is one of the most important energy projects this province has had the opportunity to be involved in,” said Mr. Parker. “Partnering with our neighbors in Newfoundland and Labrador to bring clean, hydroelectricity through a subsea cable to Nova Scotia to help meet our energy needs and achieve environmental goals is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” The project will provide Nova Scotians with a reliable source of clean energy at predictable, stable rates for 35 years. It is the lowest long-term cost option for the province to meet federal environmental requirements. It will also provide jobs, generate economic activity and give the province a second connection to the North American electricity grid, for more options to purchase energy. Nova Scotia’s energy plan will ensure the lowest, fairest electricity rates for Nova Scotians now and in the future, said Energy Minister Charlie Parker in Bridgewater today, Feb. 20. Mr. Parker is visiting communities across the province to share details of the energy plan, which he said can be summed up in five words: local, reliable, green, tax-free and efficient. “We promised to make life better for Nova Scotia families,” said Mr. Parker. “To fulfill that commitment, we had to do two things: end the practice of paying provincial tax on basic home electricity, and develop a realistic, forward-thinking, innovative, competitive, made-in Nova Scotia approach to ensure Nova Scotians pay the lowest, fairest electricity rates possible now and in the future. “I am proud that we have been able to do both of those things.” Nova Scotia’s energy plan is already working in communities across the province. On the South Shore, the province has helped people enjoy the benefits of clean, green renewable electricity generated in their own backyards while encouraging local economic opportunities. Proposed energy-related projects in the region include: 2.3-megawatt community feed-in tariff (COMFIT) wind project for the Municipality of the District of Chester Watts Wind Energy’s two-megawatt COMFIT project in Bayswater the Mi’kmaq Rights Initiative’s four-megawatt COMFIT project in Whynachts Settlement a 78-megawatt South Canoe Wind Project between Chester and Windsor, led by Oxford Frozen Foods a 24-megawatt South Canoe Wind Project in Lunenburg County, led by Minas Paper Pulp and Powerlast_img read more

Video of handover ceremony Mr. Annan told a handover ceremony in New York for chairmanship of the so-called Group of 77 developing nations there were many promising signs that 2004 would be a positive year. Qatar takes over from Morocco as chairman of the group, now a coalition of 135 countries, whose aim is to promote the developing world’s collective economic interests and give it a stronger voice in international forums. “I hope it is an auspicious sign that Qatar will be guiding the G-77 in the year when we hope to push forward the Doha ‘development round’ of trade negotiations,’ he said. The Secretary-General observed that if the world is to achieve the Millennium Development Goals – such as halving extreme poverty – by their target date of 2015, then “we must move quickly to give developing nations free and fair access to global markets and to spare them from subsidized competition. Rich countries must recognize that it is in their self-interest to open up trade on fair terms.” He said the global economy is showing signs of improvement after the recent slowdown, pointing to a UN report that forecasts a global growth rate of 3.5 per cent this year. Mr. Annan added that particular attention should be given to the world’s most vulnerable countries, such as small island developing states and many nations in Africa. The Secretary-General paid tribute to Morocco’s leadership in 2003, which he said was a year “marked above all by the war in Iraq and the tragic events related to it – including the attack on the UN in Baghdad.” He noted: “The events of 2003 distracted the world’s leaders from dealing with other threats which, to most people, are equally immediate and real.” read more

first_imgGlobal high-performance polymer manufacturer Victrex employs around 600 people in the UK in roles ranging from manufacturing to management. When Sally Knill joined as head of reward in 2013, it soon became apparent that a financial education programme was needed. “There was limited appreciation of the benefits on offer,” she says. “The pension trustees were looking to change this but the two-hour-long seminar they proposed was far from engaging.”Instead, Knill segmented the workforce by age and arranged for more life-stage focused workshops to be rolled out. As well as highlighting the benefits on offer, these workshops provided employees with information about everything from student loans to retirement options and spotting financial scams. “Knowledge increased significantly and we also saw a lot of employees using this to take out additional voluntary contribution (AVC) schemes to top up their pensions,” she says.A year later, Knill introduced a broader health and wellbeing strategy, which included financial wellbeing, and decided to build on the success of the programme. “We were closing our defined benefit pension scheme to future accrual so we wanted to provide more financial education to ensure employees understood the new scheme and were able to take advantage of it,” she explains.Taking the same segmented approach as before, but adding in one-to-ones for employees requiring more detailed guidance, the new programme had huge take-up and some very positive results. Just one employee has opted out of the new scheme with the majority choosing to pay in the 5% contribution the organisation was targeting. “Helping our employees make informed decisions about their finances is incredibly important for their wellbeing,” adds Knill.“This also translates into business benefits such as higher employee engagement and lower turnover. Financial education definitely deserves its place in the employee benefits mix.”last_img read more

first_imgReutersThe country’s topselling car maker, Maruti Suzuki India, on Thursday, posted a marginal 4.4 percent rise in profit to Rs 1,556.4 crore for the quarter ended June 30 from Rs 1,490.9 crore in the corresponding quarter last year. The auto maker’s total revenues from operations increased to Rs 19,777.4 crore from Rs 16,996 crore during the same period. Net sales expanded almost 17 percent to Rs 17,132 crore. The company sold 3.94 lakh vehicles in Q1, a growth of 13.2 percent over the same period last year. Of this, exports were at 26,140 units, financial daily Business Standard reported. The company’s operating profit increased 5.3 percent to Rs 2,331.2 crore but margins contracted by 150 basis points to 13.6 percent due to higher commodity prices and high expenses in sales promotion and marketing.The company said that growth in volumes, favourable product mix, higher non-operating income and cost reduction efforts contributed to the increase in profits. However, costs were impacted by higher commodity prices, sales promotions and marketing expenses.But the car maker missed estimates by Bloomberg analysts, with a rise in commodity prices and impact of GST biting its earning pie. Passenger vehicles sales in India declined 11.21 percent in June, the sharpest since March 2013 as companies curtailed dispatches to dealers ahead of the GST rollout on July 1.

first_imgAccording to researchers, a woman’s choice to fit in with a crowd or stand out may depend on the size of her high heels which explains the deep human urge to gain status in the society.The findings showed that women adopt local trends like changing the size of heels while moving to richer parts of the city but ignore them when they move to socio-economically lower areas.“In other words, most women want to look like rich girls and different from the poor girls,” said Kurt Gray, assistant professor at University of North Carolina in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’While moving to posh cities, women tend to closely try and match the size of their heels with the heel size of other women in that city, showing a deep desire for conformity. However, on the contrary, in a bid to keep up with their individuality, they match the size of their heels with the size of their own past purchases, when shifting to poorer localities.The researchers labelled this phenomenon as “trickle down conformity”, because fashion preferences trickle down from the top but seldom up from the bottom.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“From the beginning of time, people have thirsted for respect and social standing, and have aligned themselves with the powerful and distanced themselves from the powerless. So it makes sense that they do the same with heel sizes,” Gray explained in the paper published in the journal PLOS ONE. This “aspirational fashion” of people want to look rich is getting more prevalent, with the increasing inequality in society and widening gap between rich and poor.  To examine this trend, the researchers teamed up with a large-online fashion retailer. They examined the size of high heels in five years of shoe purchases —16,236 in total _of 2007 women who moved between one of 180 US cities. Such aspirations also fuel the fortunes of fashion sites that provide high-status goods for low prices, the researchers noted, adding that the phenomenon may also apply to men. “Men do the same thing when they purchase clothes, electronics or cars,” Gray said.last_img read more

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Football is a young man’s game.Seventeen of the 27 players named AP First Team All-Pros in 2014 are 28 years of age or’s Elliot Harrison has decided to celebrate youth even further, by naming his All-Under-25 Team.Two members of the Arizona Cardinals, safety Tyrann Mathieu and kicker Chandler Catanzaro, landed on Harrison’s squad.Harrison on Mathieu:Unfortunately, we have yet to see a full, healthy season from the “Honey Badger.” But we certainly have seen the immense talent, particularly when it comes to his innate ability to just make plays. He can tackle, rush the passer and cover the slot. And here’s the thing: He’s still just 22 years old. As the pro game continues to slow down for him from a mental perspective, he’ll become even more of a beast.Mathieu had a decent sophomore season in 2014 after returning from a devastating knee injury that robbed him of the latter part of his rookie year. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo In 13 games, the former LSU star registered 37 tackles, four passes defensed, an interception and a fumble recovery. He missed a couple games late in the season with a fractured thumb, but played in the Cardinals’ final two regular season games and their playoff loss at Carolina.On Catanzaro:This might have been the toughest selection on the list, with Cody Parkey just about even-steven with Catanzaro. Parkey’s field goal percentage was one point higher (88.9 to 87.9), yet the Cardinals kicker was slightly better on kickoffs. Yep, we’re splitting hairs.The rookie from Clemson was outstanding after beating veteran Jay Feely for the placekicking job in training camp.Catanzaro hit on 29 of 33 field goal attempts and all 27 of his extra points in 2014. As Harrison points out, he was also outstanding on kickoffs, booting 50.6 percent of his kicks into or through the end zone for touchbacks, an improvement of almost 13 percent over Feely’s 2013 mark.
