Cenk Uygur (host of The Young Turks) on his weekly Daily Rant segment on the Dylan Ratigan show on MSNBC explains the influence of money on the Afghanistan war and GOP obstruction to the START treaty. ______ WASHINGTON (Nov. 16) — An agreement between the United States and Russia to slash their nuclear arsenals was in danger of collapse Tuesday after an influential Republican senator said it should not be voted on this year. With a terse statement, Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., dealt a major setback to President Barack Obama’s efforts to improve ties with Russia and to his broader strategy for reducing nuclear arms worldwide. The treaty, known as New START, had been seen as one of Obama’s top foreign policy accomplishments. Without the support of Kyl, the leading Republican voice on the treaty, Democrats have little hope of securing at least eight Republican votes, the minimum they would need for ratification in the Senate. His stance, unless reversed, would delay the vote until the newly elected Senate, with an expanded Republican minority, is sworn in next year. Democrats would then need the support of at least 14 Republicans. The White House has been trying to avoid a vote next year, knowing that ratification could slip out of reach in the face of opposition to the treaty from most Republicans and an increasingly partisan political environment. At a minimum, a 2011 vote would probably set the treaty back for months, because Republicans are likely to demand new hearings in

10th Anniversary MetLife National Study Cites Need for Cutting Edge Employee Benefits

10th Anniversary MetLife National Study Cites Need for Cutting Edge Employee Benefits

A Marketplace USA Chaplain greets a bank employee during his regular rounds as part of the companies’ unique benefit package.

Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 09, 2012

The 10th anniversary of the prestigious MetLife Study of Employee Benefit Trends highlighted the need for cutting edge benefits like Marketplace Chaplains which today serves more than 500 corporate clients with 2,669 service locations in the U.S. and worldwide. Each year, the national study explores an evolving benefits landscape from the point of view of employers and employees across all U.S. regions, industries and company sizes. Through both robust years and turbulent economic times, the study has identified significant key findings and insights that have served to inform and shape today’s benefits strategies for employers and their advisors.

The study marks a decade of decoding and discovering these benefits. A key finding this year is 60% of surveyed employers recognize the precarious economic climate, rather than reducing business focus on employee benefits, actually creates opportunity for benefits to drive human capital. In addition, the study found employees are less committed to their employers, but at the same time, are highly dependent on their workplace benefits according to the published study summary.

That’s exactly what Rilo Stephens, President & CEO of Atlanta-based client company, Eckardt Electric Co. found when he decided to employ Marketplace Chaplains as a new employee benefit for his company.

It’s important to have someone on-site and professionally trained to be there for the employees and their family members,” he said of his growing company of 125 employees spread out over the Southeast U.S. “Our customers are asking more of us and we are asking more of each other; it’s a very pressured and stressed time for all of us and we see the chaplains make a huge impact on all of us.”

According to the published information, one of the Study’s most significant findings is the strong relationship between satisfaction with benefits and job satisfaction. First noted in 2004 and every year since, this correlation creates compelling evidence for the power of benefits to drive a universal set of business objectives – employee attraction, retention and productivity. It is a central tenet for benefits professionals and justifies benefits investment to senior management.

“It doesn’t matter if the company is large or small, Fortune 100 or family-owned, having a professional caregiver who is a trained and caring Marketplace Chaplain has proven to benefit the company’s bottom line and their top line, employees and their family members,” said Marketplace Chaplains’ President & COO Dick De Witt.

“Our industry has seen a great deal of change over the last four-to-five years and putting the chaplain service in place is one of the best business decisions I have made,” added Stephens.

Ten years ago employees expected benefits, but were far less engaged in their true value, the study reported. Today, new economic realities are driving employees to more fully appreciate the benefits that their employers provide – even if they have to pay more of the costs themselves.

The benefits are an indispensable ingredient in how the working American family achieves short- and long-term financial security. Indeed it’s unlikely that workplace benefits have ever been as desirable or important as they are in the current era.

What’s in store for the world in 2011? Trends forecaster Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute provided his insights on the year ahead. Will the people of the world wake up to a dire economic reality? Will the US dollar or the value of gold prevail? Will hardship-driven crimes be committed across the socioeconomic spectrum by legions of the on-the-edge desperate? Will the “War on Terror” morph into the “War on Crime,” where all Americans are suspects until proven innocent? Will governments try to eliminate free access to the web and literally shut down computers and websites they consider a threat to national security? Will the seeds of revolution be sown? Celente argued that all of the above will take place in some shape or form. There will be a wakeup call on the economy, a crack down on the people and a loss of liberty, and also an increase in Journalism 2.0, alternative energy and a growth in cyber war tactics. “Look what’s happening now. You name the city,” he said. “The people are getting hit on at every level.” The banks and governments are robbing the people and will continue to do so, he argued. “What they are going to do, is they are going to make up the slack by going after the little people at every level; licensing fees, parking fees, you name it, they’re going to squeeze every dollar out of the people,” Celente commented. “If you go five miles over the speed limit there’s a cop waiting for you.” Gold will run high in 2010, as the federal resave

Chicago?s TechNexus Named to Forbes List of Top 10 Startup Incubators and Accelerators

Chicago’s TechNexus Named to Forbes List of Top 10 Startup Incubators and Accelerators

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 03, 2012

TechNexus, Chicago’s first collaborative ecosystem for tech entrepreneurs and business leaders, has been named the No. 9 startup incubator in the United States by Forbes. Since opening its doors in 2007, more than 150 companies have grown within TechNexus. Those companies have raised more than $ 80 million in investment capital and collectively employ nearly 500 people in new, skilled jobs.

Forbes took several factors into consideration when developing the list, paying particular attention to the value of the companies tied to the incubators, the most recent equity valuation of the companies and the percentage of companies that are still active.

“I think the TechNexus team really hated the term the ‘incubator’ for a long time, instead referring to the collaboration and meaningful community that gathered here each day as something different,” explained Pat Kerpan, CEO of CohesiveFT, one of the earliest companies in the TechNexus incubator. “The experience here was more community driven than other incubators I know of, especially five years ago. These guys were way ahead of everyone else.”

TechNexus is unique among the Forbes list of top incubators in America, which includes several different business models to support growing companies. It is an ecosystem built around nearly 3,000 entrepreneurs, engineers and executives from bigger companies flowing through the space each month, and anchored by community organizations like the Illinois Technology Association, Clean Energy Trust and more than 75 user groups. It does not require businesses to sign on to its incubator for a predetermined amount of time. In addition to the incubator space, several hundred entrepreneurs, executives and even students have “keys to the clubhouse” and cowork within the 25,000 sq. ft. facility at 200 S. Wacker Dr. in Chicago.

“It’s like TechNexus is curating collaboration, bringing exactly the right people together to support the companies growing here,” said Jason Lobel, CEO of Storeplacer, another TechNexus-incubated company.

TechNexus partners have made private investments in many of the companies within the incubator, and help facilitate relationships with investors from around the globe. Some of the companies themselves have foreign roots, hailing from locales that include Canada, China and Ireland.

“TechNexus was a great place to run our global headquarters, even as we continue to scale up our team in Australia and around the globe,” said Steve Subar, CEO of Open Kernel Labs.

Most companies that have grown at TechNexus operate in the business-to-business space and benefit from the strong industry connections within the ecosystem.

“The focus around here is on building companies, finding customers and getting great revenue growth,” said Brian Crummy, CEO of flowerpetal.com. “There are real companies and some very experienced entrepreneurs here, and that’s an incredible resource to grow my business around.”

“We try to match a growing company with leaders from bigger businesses to transform industries,” said Terry Howerton, cofounder and managing partner of TechNexus. “Our role is to be a catalyst for that collaboration and growth.”

ClearDATA Co-Founder and Chief Privacy Officer Chris Bowen to Speak at 21st Annual WEDI National Conference

ClearDATA Co-Founder and Chief Privacy Officer Chris Bowen to Speak at 21st Annual WEDI National Conference

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) April 30, 2012

ClearDATA Networks, Inc., the leading healthcare cloud computing platform and service provider, today announced that its co-founder and Chief Privacy Officer Chris Bowen will be a featured speaker on the topic of “PHI and Cloud Computing” at the 21st Annual WEDI National Conference being held May 1-3, 2012 in Tampa, Florida. Healthcare leaders from across the nation attend the WEDI (Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange) Conference to learn about and address issues of primary concern to the healthcare industry.

“Securing data and patient information is a top priority in our industry and many are concerned of potential security risks associated with moving PHI to the cloud,” said Chris Bowen, Chief Privacy Officer for ClearDATA Networks, Inc. “While safeguarding PHI in the cloud does introduce new security issues, it can also reduce or eliminate many security threats. Done properly, PHI in the cloud can effectively be more secure, and definitely more cost effective, than storing PHI onsite for a healthcare provider.”

WEDI Conference Session Title: PHI and Cloud Computing

Wednesday, May 2, 2012 from 3:25 PM – 4:55 PM

Grand Hyatt Hotel Tampa Bay, White Ibis Room

Abstract: Cloud Computing has become a popular choice to move/store data while leveraging speed and cost effectiveness. However, covered entities, business associates and all others responsible to keep sensitive date (including PHI) protected and secure have a lot to consider when moving into the cloud environment. Vendors are offering cloud technology; the federal government is mandating its business to move towards the cloud and NIST has been releasing Special Publications regarding cloud computing and security.
