For nearly five decades, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce has annually awarded an individual who has gone above and beyond his or her daily requirements to better the state of Vermont through self-sacrifice, service and volunteerism. In the crowded field of awards given to Vermont community members, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Award is one of the most prestigious. This year, the Vermont Chamber of Commerce proudly presents the Citizen of the Year Award to Mr. Edwin Colodny of Burlington. Mr. Colodny is a native Vermonter who spent his early years in Burlington where his family owned a grocery store. Much of Colodny s career was embedded in the airline industry. In 1975, after working his way up in the ranks, he was named President and CEO of US Airways. Under his leadership, the company was reshaped into a major national carrier. In 2001, Mr. Colodny was asked to take over the University of Vermont leadership and become Interim President. During a most challenging time, he put the University back on track, establishing a new base for future students, staff and professors. Stepping down from this role, Colodny responded to a request to become Interim CEO of Fletcher Allen Health Care. In this capacity, he gave essential direction to the medical education center, guiding it through difficult times. In both critical roles, Vermont is indebted to Colodny for shaping two crucial institutions, enabling them to provide health care, education, research and service to Vermont. Those that Mr. Colodny worked with during this time admire him for his invaluable leadership and service, denoting him a model of integrity and compassion.”Mr. Colodny has proven through years of service, his dedication to the state of Vermont,” said Betsy Bishop, President of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. “I have had the pleasure of working directly with Mr. Colodny and have seen his incredible ability to bring together differing perspectives toward a common goal. His work with many Vermont institutions has laid the foundation for the future of Vermont.”Through years of service and sacrifice, Mr. Colodny has continued to provide Vermont organizations with effective guidance that has created a solid base for education, health care and service statewide. Mr. Colodny currently serves on the Investment Committee of the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, helping to guide the organization through a difficult period for the arts. He is also an honorary chairman for the Endowment Committee for Vermont Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Colodny continues to lend his energy to Vermont Law School, New England Culinary Institute, Shelburne Museum and Fletcher Allen Health Care Foundation. He also serves of counsel to the law firm Dinse, Knapp & McAndrew in Burlington.The Vermont Chamber of Commerce will honor Mr. Edwin Colodny on October 19, 2009 from 5:30 to 8 pm at the Hilton Burlington Hotel.

SAN JOSÉ, Costa Rica – The United States Coast Guard vessel USCGC Bertholf intercepted a Costa Rican fishing vessel carrying 2.3 tons of cocaine 70 nautical miles from Cocos Island in the Pacific Ocean, authorities announced on July 1. The Costa Rica Drug Control Police assisted in the June 28 operation, a part of the multinational counterdrug effort Operation MARTILLO, which targets illicit trafficking routes in coastal waters along the Central American isthmus. Three Costa Ricans and one Nicaraguan were arrested. One of the world’s largest uninhabited islands, Cocos Island has become a route for drug trafficking over the recent years. In 2013, Costa Rican authorities seized 19.8 tons of cocaine, according to the Ministry of Public Security. By Dialogo July 02, 2014 [Tico Times (Costa Rica), 01/07/2014; La Nación (Costa Rica), 01/07/2014; Ministry of Public Security (Costa Rica), 30/06/2014]
There is a good chance you have resolved at some point in your life to kick a bad money habit. Maybe it is shopping when you are bored, making impulse purchases or even trying to time the market.Instead of taking the negative approach of trying to eliminate a behavior, try to make a positive change by adopting a good money habit. That’s what these money experts did. Here are nine money-saving tips they have incorporated to spend less, take control of their finances and save thousands of dollars.1. Put Purchases in PerspectiveMichelle Schroeder-Gardner, creator of the Making Sense of Cents blog, asks herself before making a purchase how long she would have to work in order to pay for it.“Thinking about a car, a house or even small purchases such as clothing this way can really make you debate how badly you need an item,” she said. “This has helped me save thousands of dollars.”A similar approach is to ask yourself whether a purchase will take you closer to or away from your goals, and whether it’s the best value for your money. continue reading » 44SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Saudi Arabia, which has reported the highest number of infections in the Arab world, is scrambling to limit the spread of coronavirus at home. On Sunday, the health ministry said the number of deaths from COVID-19 had risen to 139, confirmed infections to 17,522 while 2,357 people have recovered.Last month, Saudi Arabia suspended the year-round “umrah” pilgrimage over fears of the coronavirus pandemic spreading in Islam’s holiest cities.Authorities are yet to announce whether they will proceed with this year’s hajj, scheduled for the end of July, but they have urged Muslims to temporarily defer preparations for the annual pilgrimage.Last year, some 2.5 million faithful travelled to Saudi Arabia from across the world to participate in the hajj, which Muslims are obliged to perform at least once during their lifetime.The Arab world’s biggest economy has also closed cinemas, malls and restaurants and halted flights as it attempts to contain the virus.King Salman has warned of a “more difficult” fight ahead against the virus, as the kingdom faces the economic impact of virus-led shutdowns and crashing oil prices. The deal, which has a total value of 995 million riyals, also includes “the establishment of six large regional laboratories in a number of areas in the kingdom, including a mobile laboratory with a production capacity of 10,000 tests daily”, it added.Earlier the government decided to relax a nationwide curfew between 9am and 5pm, with malls and retailers allowed to reopen until May 13, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.But a round-the-clock lockdown will be maintained in some areas including Mecca, where the highest number of infections have been recorded in recent days despite the city being sealed off.Many countries around the Middle East and North Africa have the easing of lockdown restrictions to coincide the holy fasting month of Ramadan which began on Friday. Topics : Saudi Arabia announced Sunday a $265 million deal with a Chinese firm to ramp up coronavirus testing as the kingdom eased a 24-hour curfew, except in hotspots including Islam’s holy city of Mecca.The agreement with China’s Beijing Genome Institute (BGI) will provide for nine million COVID-19 tests, the government said in a statement.It said in line with the agreement “500 experts, specialists, and technicians” would come from China to conduct the tests.
Doctors in white coats and blue scrubs sat around a conference room table in June, looking up at a colorful slide projected on the wall.”How is anyone supposed to memorize this?” a doctor sitting in the back asked as Yoshihiro Masui, the director of Yokohama City Seibu Hospital’s critical care center, checked the slides.The presentation, full of color-coded flow charts, showed dozens of new safety protocols for everything from routine surgeries to dialysis. Weeks earlier, Seibu had been the site of one of the worst hospital coronavirus outbreaks in Japan, with some 80 people testing positive for COVID-19, including 43 staff members. By the time the hospital contained the spread, 13 elderly patients had died.For most of May, the 500-bed hospital, in a port city 30km south of Tokyo, had sat empty. After the outbreak, it halted nearly all outpatient services. Doctors and nurses were required to spend two weeks at home, monitoring for symptoms before they could return to work.Now, as the country emerges from a state of emergency, hospitals like Seibu face the prospect of operating in the shadow of a virus with no treatment or cure.”We can never have an outbreak again like the one we experienced,” said Masui, an emergency doctor who has been charged with the hospital’s coronavirus response. “What we learned is that this can truly happen anywhere.” ‘NEW NORMAL’ Topics : Doctors and nurses at Seibu were among the first to mobilize for the pandemic in Japan, accepting sick passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship in February.After treating dozens of coronavirus patients, a man with no fever and no other obvious symptoms was carried into the emergency room in early April. The man was kept in a room with another patient before he was discharged to another facility. By the time the staff learned in late April the man had the virus, it had already spread to other wings of the hospital.Masui says he felt responsible for the outbreak.”I pushed the hospital to take in suspected coronavirus patients, knowing other hospitals were turning them away,” he said during a rare break between his rounds. “I was the one convincing the head of the hospital to take these patients in.”More than 18,000 people have tested positive for the virus in Japan. The number of new coronavirus cases have fallen since mid-April and with 971 deaths, the country has so far managed to dodge the kind of catastrophic death toll seen elsewhere.But for medical workers, new outbreaks remain a constant threat. The Mainichi newspaper found that 99 medical facilities have reported infections.New safety precautions to guard against the coronavirus can make life-saving measures more difficult.Kentaro Sato, a 29-year old doctor in the emergency room, spent two weeks at home after he rushed to resuscitate a child who suddenly went into cardiac arrest.”I knew I had to put on a gown beforehand but I thought, this is a kid, and I have to do something to help,” said Sato, who learned later the patient had a fever and was suspected of having COVID-19. Before the test came back negative, Sato spent days fretting he may have spread the virus to colleagues and other patients.Staying afloatFor months before its outbreak, the hospital had taken in patients rejected or referred by other hospitals. Once, Seibu admitted a coronavirus patient who had been rejected from nearly 100 hospitals in Tokyo, said Fumiaki Sano, the deputy director of the hospital.”Now, I wonder if we had maybe taken on too much,” Sano said in his office overlooking the trees in the parking lot. After news of the outbreak spread, the hospital received a torrent of angry calls from nearby businesses. Some nurses were shunned by neighbors when they heard they were caring for coronavirus patients.Since resuming operations on June 8, the hospital has seen 450 patients a day. Anyone who requires an overnight stay is first tested for the virus and placed in an isolated ward for the duration of their stay. The hospital is admitting only 60 patients at a time, keeping most of its wards sitting empty.”We can’t stay afloat like this,” Sano says, adding that the hospital had lost more than half of its revenue for outpatient services in May.At the entrance of the hospital, elderly patients waited in line to have their temperature checked. Staff in face shields, masks and plastic gloves guarded the hospital’s automatic doors, asking each patient to answer a dozen questions before letting them in.Inside, in a darkened hallway far from the busy hospital lobby, a letter from Sano addressed to staff hung on a notice board.”I am sure many of you, like me, are feeling anguish, worry, regret, and agony,” he wrote. “But we have patients waiting for us to reopen and we have a duty to provide the necessary medical care to our community.”

Andrea Nahles, meanwhile, could be nominated the new head of the SPD later today following a meeting of the party’s leadership, although opposition to this is mounting, according to German media reports. As minister for labour and social affairs, Nahles played a key role in steering Germany’s major pension reform – the Betriebsrentenstärkungsgesetz (BRSG) – through to completion. Credit: Susie KnollAndrea Nahles, SPD, GermanyThe BRSG was passed in the lower house of parliament in June last year, and entered into effect last month.The protracted negotiations to form a new government since then are good grounds to be relieved that the BRSG was passed before the end of the last parliamentary term, says Klaus Stiefermann, managing director at aba, Germany’s occupational pension fund association.“You don’t want to imagine the law not having made it through the process before the end of the last legislative period, and things now being up in the air because we didn’t know how the political situation would continue,” he says.Pension promises from the ‘grand coalition’The coalition partners have promised to develop an attractive, standardised ‘Riester’ product as quickly as possible, in dialogue with the insurance industry. The Riester is a state-subsidised private pension saving product. aba does not want to be left out of these discussions, however. Individuals can also save into a Riester through their employer, and such arrangements have been made more attractive by the new German reform law, according to Stiefermann.“If it touches on occupational pensions then we will also need to be considered,” he says.The association also wants a voice in the pensions commission that the new coalition government proposes to establish.According to the coalition document, the committee will focus on the future of the state pension after 2025, as well as that of the other pension pillars. It will aim to come up with a recommendation for “a reliable inter-generational contract”. It should report back by March 2020. The deal struck by the CDU/CSU and the SPD promises that state pensions will be fixed at 48% of average salaries by 2025, with contributions capped at 20% of gross pay. If necessary the parties will resort to taxes to help fund this cap, according to the draft agreement. The government will change the formula used to calculate pensions in order to secure the 48% level, it says. The employers’ association for the influential German metal and electrical sector has strongly criticised the outlined approach to state pensions, warning it will penalise younger generations.Pensions portal coming up? After months of talks, the CDU, its sister party the CSU, and the SPD – roughly centre-right and centre-left parties, respectively – came to an agreement last Wednesday that paves the way for them to govern Germany in a grand coalition. But what does it mean for pensions policy in Europe’s largest economy?The coalition agreement that looks set to form the basis of Germany’s new government does not mention occupational pensions outright, but the national association for the sector still sees it being in play. In the 177-page draft agreement, a section on pensions expresses the parties’ commitment to the three-pillar pension system, and their desire to further develop private pensions.The agreement is only a draft as it is subject to a vote by the SPD’s members – the final result is expected by 4 March, according to local reports. Assuming the coalition goes ahead, it would be a continuation of the constellation that was in power in the previous legislative period, although key changes are to take place. The finance ministry, for example, is due to be led by the SPD for the first time in nine years, with the mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, slated to succeed the CDU’s Wolfgang Schäuble. Angela Merkel is set for another term as chancellorThe coalition government also has plans for improving pension communication. It says it will introduce provision of an overarching overview of an individual’s pension situation, pulling in information from all the pillars – the state pension, occupational pensions, and private personal pension savings.As a plan, this is not new: under the last government, the SPD and the CDU commissioned Aon Hewitt and Hans-Joachim Zwiesler, an academic at the University of Ulm, to carry out research into the idea.Aba has previously cautioned against expecting too much from providing such information to individuals, and Stiefermann reiterates the association’s view that information alone will not move people to take action where it is necessary.It is important that whatever the government comes up with is compatible with the multiple information requirements that employers and pension institutions already have to meet, be it under national or European regulation, says Stiefermann.“The experience abroad has shown that this is not easy, so it’s good that [the coalition agreement] does not give a date for the introduction of such an information overview,” he says.
