first_img Bill Signing,  Healthcare,  Human Services,  Press Release,  Public Health,  Seniors Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf signed House Bill 270, now Act 87 of 2018, which authorizes enhancements to the Pharmaceutical Assistance Contract for the Elderly Needs Enhancement Tier (PACENET) program, making the program available to an additional 17,000 seniors.“Ensuring that older Pennsylvanians have access to necessary health care services, including prescription drugs, is a priority of my administration,” said Governor Wolf. “This income eligibility increase was long overdue and will go a long way in helping thousands of seniors access their prescription medications more economically and conveniently. I commend the legislature for working with my administration on this critical issue and passing this legislation.”The PACENET program, which is administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, has not had an income eligibility increase over the past 15 years. The passage of HB 270, sponsored by Representatives Frank Farry and Steve Samuelson, includes an increase in the income eligibility limits and the implementation of medication synchronization.The bill provides a $4,000 increase for both single and married Pennsylvanians. Total income for a single person can now be between $14,500 and $27,500. For a married couple, combined total income can be between $17,700 and $35,500.The increase in income limits will allow an additional 14,000 older Pennsylvanians to receive prescription drug coverage through PACENET. It also will ensure that nearly 3,000 Pennsylvanians from don’t lose program enrollment due to increases in their income.“Situations pertaining to older Pennsylvanians, who are on fixed incomes and are simply trying to make ends meet, are regularly brought to our attention,” said Secretary of Aging Teresa Osborne. “No senior should have to choose between paying their bills, buying groceries, or purchasing the medications they need. The passage of HB 270 exemplifies that Pennsylvania continues to make progress on its commitment to ensuring that seniors can age healthy and well with the dignity and respect they deserve.”HB 270 also authorizes medication synchronization that coordinates filling and refilling of prescriptions by pharmacies or dispensing physicians for program participants who take two or more medications. When an older adult is on multiple medications they must often make separate trips to the pharmacy to have them filled which decreases the likelihood of medication adherence and taking medications as prescribed. The authorization of medication synchronization allows pharmacists to align pharmaceuticals for the senior by filling partial supplies of a prescription. This service offers added convenience and improves medication adherence, without additional out-of-pocket costs to the older adult.For more information on PACENET, visit aging.pa.gov/prescriptions.

first_img The then new A wing of Townsville General Hospital in 1954, three years after its official opening. Historical Picture: State Library of Queensland “The building has gorgeous lines in it and beautiful curves in the balconies, we really wanted to make sure that was incorporated rather than try and work against it,” Ms Hart said.“We are on the top floor and were one of the first to build in that column, so we were able to make some modifications to the original plans; we’ve got an extra 30cm of ceiling than any of the other apartments because we could go up into the roof.” “All the doors are extra high and there’s internal sliding doors so that we’re not taking up extra floor space.” “Because it’s the penthouse it rises above the tower behind it and it’s the only level that can see right up over the hill, over Queens Gardens, and right up to Palm Island.”“It’s absolutely stunning like seriously the most incredible view — it’s amazing.” The couple also meticulously designed their perfect master-bedroom, which served as an escape from their busy lives as event producers and provided them with ample privacy when they wanted time away from their teenage children. “We really wanted a master-bedroom so that when we closed the door, we were in another world.”“We created a really incredible triple bathroom with a hidden sliding door, and you can lie in the bath and see Magnetic Island.”“There’s a four by four walk in wardrobe with custom built cabinetry, shoe draws, and a makeup cabinet.”RELATED: Contemporary classic with views to cherish With a family kitchen rivalling the set of MasterChef, it features top of the range appliances with an invisible range hood which rises from the stone bench. “We entertained quite a bit so we wanted a kitchen that was really beautiful and functional; we put a hidden butler’s pantry in behind a curved door that opens automatically, and then we did a triple kitchen.”“So we have the butler’s pantry, back wall, middle prep bench with a cook top, and then another space for breakfast eating and more prep on top of a massive dining area.”The Fulton Gardens complex is located in North Ward, and overlooks The Strand, featuring a double pool, gym and two acres of heritage listed gardens. Labor’s policies could deter Townsville investors leaving renters to foot the bill Breathtaking 270 degree views of Castle Hill, Magnetic Island and beyond will never be at risk of being built out, and the balcony spans the width of the apartment.“You’ll never get a building that’s made of that structural quality; with the hallways that big and the space so vast, because it was obviously made as an industrial property,” Ms Hart said.center_img The three-bedroom apartment features a bathroom for every bedroom, and a large living space for family time. It also includes a private office on the ground floor of the complex with connection to NBN, making it perfect for those wanting to work from home or operate a small team of staff.“There’s a fully kitted out office on the ground floor with private entry — so if you work for yourself or if you work from home or have staff that works really well.”“We work for ourselves so it was really-nice to be able to go downstairs to work.” Townsville’s cheapest suburbs More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020 No expense has been spared in complimenting the original art deco style of 604/53 Gregory Street.

first_imgTriple Gold Cup-winning rider Jim Culloty enjoyed Festival success as a trainer when Lord Windermere took the RSA Chase at Cheltenham. He possibly looked a fortunate winner, however, as the Willie Mullins-trained Boston Bob crashed out at the final fence when in front. That left Lord Windermere (8-1), ridden by Davy Russell, to get the better of Lyreen Legend by a length and three-quarters to give Culloty, best known for his association with Best Mate, a first winner at the meeting since he gave up riding. Russell said: “I’ve only ridden him once at home, so all the credit goes to Jim Culloty, who has instilled confidence in him. Jim’s done a marvellous job. I only steered him today and he was in super order.” Culloty added: “We knew this horse would like Cheltenham and it’s all paid off. I fancied him like mad – I thought he’d love the ground here. I told Davy to ride him to get the trip. They went no pace and it suited us. “He’s the best horse I have and it was all about getting him here. Tom Doyle deserves a lot of the credit, he’s taught him well and the first time he rode him he said to me ‘this is the one you’ve been waiting for’. “You get nervous 30 minutes before going out to ride in a Gold Cup, but I have been nervous for the last six months with this lad. I have 13 boxes and he is in box 11, and when I work my way down to him on a morning I just pray he’s OK. “I wouldn’t have thought he would run again this year. We purposely hadn’t run him over three miles on heavy ground, but he will have had a hard enough race today. As for next year we haven’t even thought about it, this has been the long-term plan. We didn’t bring him here last year thinking about today.” When asked if Lord Windermere was a possible Gold Cup contender next season, owner Dr Ronan Lambe said: “You’d hope so. He’s a beautiful jumper and three miles is his distance.” Trainer Dessie Hughes said of runner-up Lyreen Legend: “I was very pleased. He was beaten by a better horse on the day. If the ground had been heavier it might have suited us more, but no complaints.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgNew findings (or claims) are throwing long-held beliefs about human ancestors into disarray.  Early people were smarter, and traveled farther, than paleoanthropologists thought.    One report summarized by PhysOrg says, “A highly skillful and delicate method of sharpening and retouching stone artifacts by prehistoric people appears to have been developed at least 75,000 years ago, more than 50,000 years earlier than previously thought, according to a new study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder.”  The technique is called pressure flaking.  It allows finer control over the sharpness of stone tools.  “Pressure flaking adds to the repertoire of technological advances during the Still Bay (period) and helps define it as a time when novel ideas were rapidly introduced,” wrote researchers studying the stones in a South Africa cave.  “This flexible approach to technology may have conferred an advantage to the groups of Homo sapiens who migrated out of Africa about 60,000 years ago.”    That story about migrating out of Africa, though, took a falsifying hit.  Science Daily reported, “An international team of researchers, including a physical anthropology professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has discovered well-dated human fossils in southern China that markedly change anthropologists perceptions of the emergence of modern humans in the eastern Old World.”  Maybe it was out of Asia instead of Africa.  The BBC News has a photo of the cave in China where the bones were found.  National Geographic News said that these bones, 60,000 years older than previous finds, “presents a strong challenge” to the out-of-Africa theory and the “traditional early-human time line”.    Speaking of changing directions in migration, another story in Science Daily claims that fossil evidence is showing anthropoid apes colonized Africa 39 million years ago rather than evolving there.These claims and the dates are all incestuous with evolutionary assumptions.  Fossils are real, and stone tools are real, but the stories about them are convoluted and contradictory.  Since they have told us “everything you know is wrong” year after year, why do we pay them any attention?  Are they making progress toward understanding human history?  No, they are revealing their Know-Nothing Party affiliation (10/28/2009).  Vote no on Proposition D, the evolutionary storytelling initiative of the Darwin (Know-Nothing) Party.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_imgA recipe is a process. It tells you, step-by-step, what you need to do to get a certain outcome. If you are baking a cake, a recipe takes you from start to finish, covering all the steps in between.A sales process takes you from target to close, covering all of the steps along the way. It tells you how to target the right prospects. It gives you directions on how best to qualify your prospects. It provides you with the steps you need to take to uncover your client’s needs and requirements. It gives you guidance on how to present your solution and give evidence. It gives you the steps to acquire the account, to negotiate, and to close the business. A sales process is end to end.A sales methodology is different. It’s a recipe, too, but it’s a different kind of recipe. It’s more like a recipe for icing, not a cake. A recipe for icing can bolt right onto your recipe for cake, just like a sales methodology bolts onto a sales process.A sales methodology gives you the steps for some part of a sales process. The best way to demonstrate this is with an example. Let’s use Neil Rackham’s SPIN Selling. Rackham’s methodology is a system for asking questions. It’s still pound-for-pound the best methodology for asking questions in sales. But it isn’t a sales process. It can be used within any sales process.My friend Jill Konrath wrote a tremendous book called SNAP Selling. It doesn’t really matter what sales process you use, Jill’s methodology is about getting in, being relevant, being invaluable, and aligning what you do with your client’s priorities. You can read her book and get help with these sales challenges regardless of your company’s sales process.Too Much Icing, Too Little CakeIt’s possible to eat only icing. But it’s really not supposed to be eaten alone. It’s not a substitute for the cake. It’s supposed to help make the cake better.It’s important not to confuse sales processes and methodologies. You need a sales process. You can enhance them by adding some methodologies. But you can’t substitute a methodology for a sales process; it leaves too much out.QuestionsDo you have a sale process, or do you really use only a methodology?What are the benefits of having an end-to-end process to guide you from target to close?If you subscribe to some methodology, what parts of the common sales process does it cover? What parts is your methodology missing?If you have a sales process, what methodologies have you bolted on to give you a philosophy or a system for some parts of that process? Essential Reading!
