With inflation soaring, Social Security benefits are expected to rise significantly in 2023. (Disability Scoop)

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income recipients could see their monthly payments rise again next year by the highest amount in decades, experts say.

Thanks to rising inflation, the automatic cost-of-living adjustment, or COLA, that benefit recipients receive each year could be much larger than usual.

“It’s likely we’ll have a COLA closer to 8% than 3.8%,” Social Security Administration chief actuary Stephen Goss said during a briefing earlier this month, according to CNBC. .

A recent report by the Senior Citizens League suggests benefits could climb by around 8.6%, which would be the biggest increase since 1981.

The COLA is intended to ensure that Social Security and SSI benefits keep up with inflation. The adjustment is based on how any increase in the average consumer price index – calculated by the US Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics – during the third quarter of the current year compares to the same period of the previous year.

COLA for this year was 5.9%, the largest automatic increase since 1982. In contrast, COLA has increased an average of 1.88% per year over the past 10 years.

The Social Security Administration will announce in October what the COLA will be for 2023.

How luxury can benefit from Tencent and Alibaba’s thawing relationship https://atriunfar.net/how-luxury-can-benefit-from-tencent-and-alibabas-thawing-relationship/ Sun, 26 Jun 2022 09:00:44 +0000 https://atriunfar.net/how-luxury-can-benefit-from-tencent-and-alibabas-thawing-relationship/ In the days leading up to the 618 shopping festival — one of the main e-commerce extravaganzas in China — users received a WeChat Moments ad that took them directly to Tmall.

In the days leading up to the 618 shopping festival one of the main e-commerce extravaganzas in China users received a WeChat Moments ad that took them directly to Tmall. The distinct Alibaba Marketplace brand name and logo were prominently displayed (according to screenshots of the ad), an unheard-of concession from one of the usually walled gardens of the Chinese internet.

On closer inspection, tapping on the ad revealed a branded landing page directing users to the advertiser’s Tmall store in the Tmall app or on the Tmall website if users didn’t have the app on their phone. Although seemingly minor, this is a significant step forward in interoperability between WeChat and Tmall.

Such WeChat advertising driving consumers directly into the Tmall app was previously unthinkable due to the ongoing feud between Tencent and Alibaba, which like other tech giants have fiercely blocked traffic from one to the other. ‘other. Other examples of this anti-competitive behavior are Weibo completely blocking mentions of WeChat and QR codes that link to WeChat accounts, and Douyin appearing to limit the organic reach of messages that could lead a user to other platforms. Yet, as a sign of bigger changes in China’s tech ecosystem, it has recently become a reality as 618 approaches.

There were hints of this earlier, however. The first sign of these two rivals easing restrictions on each other came after the Chinese government’s anti-monopoly push in 2021. Since then, users can open direct links to Tmall in WeChat’s built-in web browser. .ser, like long because links are shared one-on-one or in group chats.

The latest development appears to work as a test case for Tmall merchants advertising on WeChat Moments, although the feature has not yet been made available to every brand on Tmall. And while driving traffic from WeChat to Tmall stores can be a huge opportunity, placing ads on WeChat Moments may not work for all brands.

Xuan Bai, marketing manager at a Beijing-based company little partner (agencies authorized by Tmall to operate e-commerce stores on behalf of brands), believes that WeChat Moments advertisements, which are billed on a cost-per-mile basis, can often be too expensive, especially for smaller names. “Brands need to have good awareness for the ad to generate the traffic and sales that justify the spend,” Xuan explained.

When the two platforms blocked traffic, it hampered brands when marketing, monetizing their WeChat followers, and creating consistent, user-centric online experiences. In this context, what can brands and marketers take away from this change? And what does this revolutionary movement mean for the relationship between these titans of technology?

The reason WeChat Moments is a desirable advertising channel comes down to data and the targeting ability of the platform. WeChat’s daily active users reached 1.26 billion at the start of 2022, and as anyone who has used the platform knows, WeChat is much more than an app of social media apps; it’s embedded in every user’s lifestyle, and the data it collects would be invaluable to any advertiser.

“It really depends on how much data WeChat can share with Tmall. If brands can have full access to the data used in its targeting on WeChat, this could be a fantastic opportunity for them,” Xuan added.

The context of this news is revealing. WeChat saw continued downward growth in its advertising business in 2021 and the first quarter of 2022. Meanwhile, its e-commerce marketplace offering never really took off. Similarly, the growth of Alibaba’s own internal advertising platform has seen sharp declines since the start of 2021. Xuan believes the two platforms will not share data with each other; if they can find common ground and share their resources, it’s a win-win.

For many luxury brands, WeChat is the go-to channel for branding, storytelling, and community building. Once WeChat Moments drives traffic to all Tmall merchants, it will be a great way to turn subscribers into customers and keep them coming back. Insights from Moments Ads will also fuel marketing, helping brands create tailored communications that fuel the growth of their WeChat brand account.

Who will benefit the most? Initially, accessible luxury products, such as perfumes and makeup, could be the biggest drivers, in terms of conversion. But while this news is a harbinger of a thawing relationship between Alibaba and Tencent, it will only benefit brands that have long had to build complicated solutions to problems caused by fierce competition from these two tech giants.

Early initiation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors in children with lupus nephritis may reduce their exposure to glucocorticoids, a new study has found.

Of the 1,999 children with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) in the Truven MarketScan™ Medicaid and Commercial 2013-2018 databases, 158 were diagnosed with lupus nephritis requiring chronic steroid use. Of these, 74 (47%) were prescribed RAAS inhibitors within 180 days of diagnosis and 84 (53%) were not.

Early initiation of RAAS inhibitors was significantly associated with a 1.8 times faster rate of glucocorticoid discontinuation compared to no use of RAAS inhibitors, Joyce C. Chang, MD, MSCE, du Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute in Pennsylvania and colleagues reported in Kidney International. The median duration of RAAS inhibitors in children with lupus nephritis was 14 months.

“Our results provide preliminary evidence to suggest that earlier initiation of RAAS inhibitors for childhood lupus nephritis may be associated with clinically meaningful reductions in glucocorticoid use duration, which should prompt further data collection. longitudinal studies to better understand this association and inform future directions regarding optimal treatment timing of RAAS inhibitor use,” Dr. Chang’s team wrote.

Among children with SLE but without lupus nephritis, 15% received RAAS inhibitors, primarily to treat hypertension.

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — For Michael Natali, the road to a less stressful life seems long right now. Travel is taking a toll as gasoline prices continue to soar to record highs.

“It’s getting weird. It’s too much and we’re suffering,” says Natali.

The Biden administration may soon back a gas tax exemption break to provide some relief. The congressional bill would end the federal gasoline tax and cut costs by about 14.72 cents per gallon.

Southern Nevada AAA notes that while the proposal could lower gasoline prices, it will only be a drop in the bucket.

“We have seen record prices and prices continue to rise or remain flat since early May,” says AAA representative John Treanor.

Any price drop is welcome, but current Nevada law will not allow Nevadans to benefit from the gas tax exemption bill if passed, because the state automatically raises the gas tax. to offset any federal cuts. Any change would require a change in state law. It means a special session of the Nevada Legislature.

Nevada State Senator James A. Settelmeyer is fighting for Nevadans to see relief at the pumps. Settelmeyer personally delivered a letter last month to Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak asking him to summon Nevada lawmakers. Nevadans would see no benefit if a gasoline tax exemption were granted.

The letter reads in part.

“I ask that you call a special session of the Nevada Legislature to address the fuel price crisis in Nevada.”

Nevada State Senator James A. Settelmeyer

Sen. Settlemeyer said changing state law to implement the gasoline tax exemption would not take money away from maintaining and repairing state roads. Instead, he suggests the state dip into surplus funds.

“Nevada received a huge amount of money from the federal level for infrastructure, so what about using it to temporarily offset gas tax funds,” Settlemeyer said.

So far, the senator says the governor has not responded to his letter.

The governor’s office sent a statement to Channel 13 saying in part:

“The state is awaiting further information on what might happen at the federal level with respect to a gasoline tax exemption or other measures.”

Office of Steve Sisolak

For people like Michael, any relief for his results can’t come soon enough.

“It’s going to take at least a few dollars to become affordable to a lot of people. At some point it starts to get in the way of what you’re able to do. I have to get from point A to point B. Well now I have pay more in gas so I can’t buy X or Y. Now we have to budget all that stuff,” says Natali.

President Biden has said he will decide whether to support the gas tax exemption proposal by the end of this week.

What is a Pass Box?

A pass-through box is used to convey materials from one cleanroom to another cleanroom in a facility. It is composed of a rectangular box with two doors on each side. The two doors are linked so they cannot both be opened at the same time, preventing pressure loss and cross-contamination from occurring.

Microtechnology, biological laboratories, pharmaceutical factories, hospitals, food processing industries, LCD factories and electronic factories are just some of the places where it is commonly used to provide clean air quality. Transferring items between rooms with different levels of cleanliness is accomplished through the use of a pass box. This can reduce the time spent opening doors, prevent air convection between different rooms, and reduce the amount of pollution produced.

The Lux Lighting Pass Box Controller accomplishes this by ensuring that Door 2 of a Pass Box is closed before Door 1 of a Pass Box is opened.

There are two Cum Operator LCD Display Panels (LCD Display Panels), one of which will be located above each door and one that will be mounted on both doors. The panel is equipped with a 20×4 blue backlit LCD display, as well as information and status displays for the UV timer, gate status and other functions. When configuring the pass box, the LCD screen is also used.

The Passbox controller also includes connectors for connecting UV lamps, CF lamps and a fan.

Features

  • It is built on a sophisticated controller-based architecture.

  • One of the most impressive features is the existence of a door status indicator on the LCD panel.

  • It has a company name which has been defined by the user. (Settings for pre-shipment)

  • Additionally, the pass-through box controller drives electromagnetic locks that have a built-in door open sensor that provides door feedback.

  • It has a delay between closing door 1 and opening door 2 that can be adjusted (and vice versa).

  • The LCD display panel provides four different types of status indications: GO, WAIT, DOOR OPEN, and DOOR CLOSE.

  • A distinctive feature of this controller is the inclusion of a Buzzer output if the door is left open for a period of time longer than the specified duration.

  • In addition, the controller contains four special multi-function keys: ESC, UP, Down and Menu, which are used to operate the CFL, and the ESC key in program mode.

  • If Manual/Auto-manual mode is selected, UV and FAN will operate.

  • If both doors are closed, the UV LAMP will be activated.

  • When a door is opened, the CF LAMP comes on.

  • Calculation of UV life in hours and minutes. Backup batteries

  • An LED indicates the status of the door on the other side.

Cleaning professionals are well aware of the importance of avoiding cross-contamination between rooms of different cleanroom classes in order to maintain the intended ISO classification and the integrity of products and manufacturing processes. One way to do this is to reduce the amount of stuff that gets moved around.

It is possible for non-viable particles and bacteria to produce contamination in a cleanroom due to the movement of materials in and out of controlled conditions. Material transfer equipment must be designed and installed correctly in order to achieve this goal, among others.

When goods need to be moved between regions with varying cleanliness standards, a pass-through box, also known as a transfer hatch or SAS pass (sterile access system), serves as a barrier between areas. Specifically, the device is used to transport material from an area of ​​lower cleanliness to another area of ​​higher cleanliness and vice versa.

Mechanical and/or electrical interlock systems are installed in each cleanroom pass-through box to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination. This way, only one door can be opened at a time, not two or more, reducing the amount of “dirty” air that can enter the cleanroom and allowing it to function properly.

NATICK, MA — A Natick senior care facility hopes to bring back fond memories while spearheading a fundraising effort for Alzheimer’s disease research with a classic car show on Sunday.

“The impetus for creating the Heritage Car Show was to have a fun event that our residents would enjoy,” said event organizer Patrick Capozzi, director of marketing at Mary Ann Morse Heathcare, which provides long-term services. duration and assisted living for the elderly. “It’s also a great event for Father’s Day because they love seeing classic cars with their families.”

The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the establishment of 45 Union St.

Funds raised at the classic car show will benefit the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease, an annual event held in October. It takes place in 600 communities across the country to support people living with the disease, which leads to memory loss and dementia, and the search for a cure.

“We hope to attract a lot of families,” Capozzi said of the fledgling event. “There will be music, games and a raffle.”

Classic car connoisseurs are expected, although Capozzi said anyone can show off their wheels at the event.

“Car show goers are a tight-knit community,” he explained, noting the popularity of a recent Corvette show at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline the previous weekend. “They also take great pride in their vehicles, tweaking them and wanting people to enjoy them.”

The facility, located at 45 Union St., has been preparing for this event for months, seeking classic car owners in the area.

“There should be classic cars as well as more modern cars,” Capozzi said. “It should be a good mix.

For car enthusiasts who can’t make it on Father’s Day, there will be an encore show in Framingham on July 23 at Mary Ann Morse at Heritage from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 747 Water St.

When officials come together, Estes Park residents benefit | Spotlight on the Estes Valley https://atriunfar.net/when-officials-come-together-estes-park-residents-benefit-spotlight-on-the-estes-valley/ Thu, 16 Jun 2022 14:00:00 +0000 https://atriunfar.net/when-officials-come-together-estes-park-residents-benefit-spotlight-on-the-estes-valley/ Duties of Estes Park officials sometimes include working beyond the city limits.

Duties of Estes Park officials sometimes include working beyond the city limits. Such work often involves dialogue with leaders from other communities. This takes many forms, including having common goals, collaborating on projects, and sharing information. Through this, leaders develop plans and build relationships that mutually benefit their respective communities and jurisdictions. To understand the importance of this work is only to recall the mayor of Longmont who provided housing for Estes Park residents evacuated during wildfires and who sent personnel here during floods.

With that in mind, last week Administrator Younglund, City Administrator Machalek and I traveled to Loveland for a regional officials meeting to learn more about changes to the regional airport in northern Colorado. The airport was established in 1963, via a 1,000-acre land grant that allowed Fort Collins and Loveland. Fort Collins Mayor Jeni Arndt and Loveland Mayor Pro Tem Don Overcash hosted several dozen attendees from across northern Colorado. After which, Airport Manager Jason Licon explained the airport’s expansion plans and invited us to tour the terminal renovation, remote air traffic control tower tour, tour the Aims Community College Aviation Program and the United/Landline Wingless Flight Bus Tour.

While visiting the remote air traffic control tower, we learned that the new control tower, with remote operation capability, is in its second year of testing. One of only two in the United States that can operate remotely, certification of operation will come as services and flights expand when the airport expansion is complete. Currently, the operational control tower is in a trailer beside the airport runways adequately functioning for safety at the airport’s current flight load. In order to scale up to an operating level of 100,000 flights, a new state-of-the-art control tower will be required.

I was especially excited to learn more about the pilot training program offered by the airport through Aims Community College. Airlines are short of commercial pilots and Aims is helping fill that need. Hearing about the program brought back fond memories of getting a pilot’s license while a student at CSU, the freedom to fly a 182, and the joy of flying to Elma, Washington to visit my sister.

After the meeting ended, as Cindy, Travis and I headed to Big Thompson Canyon, back to Estes Park, my thoughts were on the promise I had made to represent all Estes Park residents. I was aware of how working to deliver on the covenant takes me up, down and across Colorado. And that in doing so, I nurture relationships with counterparts in other communities that will ensure that the common good of the people of Estes Park continues to be respected. For me, despite the miles and the effort, it’s time well spent and a reminder that officials bring together the people they serve benefit.

New Orleans— Employers providing mental health coverage in 2022 hit a new high of 91% since the COVID-19 pandemic. Benefits such as mental health coverage, telemedicine and telehealth have shown upward movement, according to the latest SHRM Employee Benefits Survey released today.

Health care emerged as the leader in importance ranked by employers as the most important type of benefit an organization can provide to its employees, followed by retirement and leave benefits, which jointly rank second rank. Retirement benefits were 55% in 2020/21, rising to 82% in 2022. Although the importance ratings for many benefits changed dramatically at the height of the pandemic, now that businesses have regained some semblance of functioning more normal, so are companies ranked the benefits in a more typical order of importance. While this order of importance reverts to what was generally seen pre-pandemic, it is critical to note that all benefits are now considered individually more important to offer for businesses than they were pre-pandemic. The impact of the pandemic on the world of work appears to have led to lasting shifts in views on specific benefits offerings.

For instance:

  • Flexible working arrangements were 49% in 2019, 83% during the pandemic when many workers had to work remotely and have now stabilized at 70% in 2022.
  • 65% of employers thought the benefits of professional career development were significant now compared to 37 percent in 2020/2021 and 51% before the pandemic.
  • Family care benefits were seen by 70% of employers as important to offer, up from 76% during the pandemic when they became increasingly important, but up from 52% before the pandemic.

“Employer benefits provide organizations with a key opportunity to improve the employee experience and directly make a difference in the lives of their employees,” said Alex Alonso, SHRM Chief Knowledge Officer, Ph. D., SHRM-SCP. “The COVID-19 pandemic and its lasting impacts on the economy and public health have accelerated the evolving nature of organizations, many of which now have access to broader talent pools through the ability to work remotely. Workers now have more options for where and when it will work, and these two factors together create an exciting talent landscape for organizations around the world.These advantages can play a huge role in this competition for talent and, in some cases , can determine success or failure.

Highlights from the 2022 SHRM Benefits Report:

Health care benefits:

  • 93 percent of organizations reported offering telemedicine or telehealth as a benefit to their workers, up to 20 percent points since 2019.
  • 1 in 5 employers offer mental health days in addition to regular sick leave.
  • Almost all organizations (98%) offer some type of health coverage, with three-quarters (72%) of organizations saying they offer a fully insured health plan and 26% saying they offer a self-insured plan.
  • Flexible Medical Spending Accounts (FSAs) and Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) remained the most popular types of health-related spending accounts, with 63% and 57% of employers offering them, respectively.
  • Nearly two-thirds (63%) of organizations that offer an HSA said they made employer contributions to these plans, which is the lowest prevalence since 2018, when 64% said they offered the benefit.

Retirement and Savings:

  • 82% chose retirement and savings as an important benefit. Up 27% compared to 2020/21, employers ranked retirement and savings benefits among the top types of benefits they can provide to their employees. Employers still believe strongly in the importance of retirement and savings benefits.
  • In 2022, most employers offered some type of retirement savings plan to their employees, with 94% offering a traditional 401(k) and 68% offering a Roth 401(k).
  • Many of these employers also provided some type of matching to these retirement plans, with 83% contributing to traditional 401(k) plans and 76% contributing to Roth 401(k) plans.
  • On average, employers provided a maximum salary match percentage of 6.8% for traditional 401(k) plans and 6.7% for Roth 401(k) plans.
  • Just over half (51%) of organizations said they automatically enroll new or existing employees in their company’s pension plan, a figure that has remained stable since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leave:

  • 82% selected holidays as very important.
  • Leave benefits remained among the most important benefits employers felt an organization should offer, even after the initial adjustment at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Despite a high ranking, leave for new parents (beyond what is required by law) returned to pre-pandemic prevalence levels after all the different types of leave reached their highest prevalence in 2020. Organizations offering paid maternity leave fell to 35 percent (from 53 percent in 2020) and the number offering paid paternity leave fell to 27 percent (from 44 percent).
  • The number of organizations offering paid adoption leave fell to 28% (from 36%) and the number offering paid adoption leave fell to 22% (from 28%). Employers appear to be backtracking on expanded parental leave options since returning to more normal operations.

Other types of leave:

  • Almost all employers offered paid vacation (99%) or paid sick leave (96%), with two-thirds (67%) indicating that they offered a paid vacation bank (PTO) covering both vacation and sick leave.
  • Open or unlimited paid leave continued to be rarely offered, with only 6% indicating that it offered this benefit.
  • Additionally, (20%) of organizations said they offer paid mental health days separate from regular sick leave.

Family care:

  • More than half of organizations (59%) said they offer a flexible spending account for dependents, which allows employees to directly save funds for caregiving expenses.
