first_imgMonday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of North Carolina in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) and the Cherokee Indian Police Department hosted a day long community awareness summit on the epidemic of heroin and prescription opioid abuse and the related overdose deaths in Indian Country and surrounding areas in western North Carolina.“Heroin addiction is not a public health concern.  It is a public health crisis.  The alarming rate of deaths attributed to heroin overdoses in the Western District of North Carolina and the increasing rate of addiction to opiates and prescription drugs demand our immediate attention,” said U.S. Attorney Jill Westmoreland Rose.  “As law enforcement we cannot arrest our way out of this epidemic.  The Justice Department’s three-pronged approach combines law enforcement action with prevention and treatment efforts.  Stemming the flow of drugs, stopping more people from using opiates, and treating those who have become addicted requires coordination and collaboration with our state, local and tribal partners, community leaders, healthcare providers, service groups and community members.  Working together we can succeed in implementing a comprehensive strategy that offers viable solutions, delivers sustainable results, and brings relief to afflicted communities,” U.S. Attorney Rose added.Approximately 110 professionals from the fields of law enforcement, medicine, substance abuse and treatment, and interested community members attended the summit, held at the Chief Joyce Dugan Cultural Arts Center in Cherokee, N.C. Speakers from federal and local law enforcement agencies, medical experts and representatives of community organizations presented on a broad range of topics including: the alarming rise in heroin and opioid addiction; prevention efforts and available treatment options; heroin trafficking trends within the boundaries of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and surrounding areas; and tribal, state, local and federal law enforcement efforts to stem the flow of opiates in the area.U.S. Attorney Rose thanked the DEA, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the Cherokee Indian Police Department for co-sponsoring the event and emphasized the importance of the conference stating that, “Today’s summit is part of our ongoing effort to bring attention to heroin addiction and opioid drug abuse and to continue to build upon our collaborative efforts with law enforcement, the healthcare field and our community partners to confront this epidemic and address the problem in real and meaningful ways.”last_img read more

first_imgIt’s no surprise that, as a nation, we’re getting older. What is surprising is how quickly. The U.S. National Institute on Aging, says the population of people between ages 75-85 is 17 million. They predict that number will be 30 million by 2050. Contrast those numbers with the UN estimates that the percentage of children will drop. Today, half of Latin America is under fifteen years old. By 2050, half will be over 40 years old. So the trend is fewer kids and more old people. This is the premise of Ted C. Fishman’s book, “Shock of Gray”. The book is about what the world will look like with a majority of older people…who will increasing rely upon younger people as they age. Let’s face it, as we age, we will need younger people to run companies, govern our communities, and possibly even take care of us. As much as we might not like to talk about getting older and some might argue we’ve created a society that places value on youth, there will come a point in our lives where we do have to face the reality that we’re getting old. I found “Shock of Gray” interesting because it was able to have this conversation in a respectful way. Fishman offers the reader the facts and poses the questions. He very smartly leaves the answers up to readers. From a human resources perspective, it made me realize how connected work and aging can be. One chapter of the book talked about older workers making more money by collecting their Social Security benefits than by taking a job. It’s pure economics. If companies are creating jobs that pay less than Social Security, why wouldn’t I retire? This not only has an impact on any potential conversations about Social Security reform but on employability and career development. After reading Fishman’s book, I felt it should be required reading for human resources pros. At some point, the subject of the aging workforce will move into the boardroom. It could be the business that realizes the older people are a part of their core customer base. Or the company that needs to change their product to accommodate an older consumer. Maybe even the organization concerned about where their future leadership is coming from and can they groom emerging leaders before their older workforce decides to retire. Better to start thinking of options now, than when the reality could jeopardize the company.last_img read more

It is the same principle that medical doctors swear as an oath before becoming licensed: Do no harm. Here’s “Ethical Data Sensemaking.”Paul Hayes shares his experience from trying to live plastic-free for a month and why it’s hard to stick to it. It’s surprising how shopping habits need to be changed and why you need to spend your money in a totally different way and cannot rely on online stores anymore.Oil powers the cars we drive and the flights we take, it heats many of our homes and offices. It is in the things we use every day and it plays an integral role across industries and economies. Yet it has become very clear that the relentless burning of fossil fuels cannot continue unabated.

These days, I feel that a strong team is the one that feels more like a close family than a constellation of stars. A family where everybody has a sense of predictability, trust and respect for each other. A family which deeply embodies the values the company carries and reflects these values throughout their work. But also a family where everybody feels genuinely valued, happy and ignited to create,” said Vitaly Friedman in an update thought recently and I couldn’t agree more.How do you justify a job in a company that has a significant influence on our world and our everyday lives and that not necessarily with the best intentions? Meredith Whittaker wrote up her story of starting at Google, having an amazing time there, and now leaving the company because she couldn’t justify it anymore that Google is using her work and technology to get involved in fossil energy business, healthcare, governance, and transportation business — and not always with the focus on improving everyone’s lives or making our environment a better place to live in but simply for profit.Synchronous meetings are a problem in nearly every company. They take a lot of time from a lot of people and disrupt any schedule or focused work. So here’s how Buffer switched to asynchronous meetings, including great tips and insights into why many tools out there don’t work well.Actionable advice is what we usually look for when reading an article. However, it’s not always possible or the best option to write actionable advice and certainly not always a good idea to follow actionable advice blindly. That’s because most of the time actionable advice also is opinionated, tailored, customized advice that doesn’t necessarily fit your purpose. Sharing experiences instead of actionable advice fosters creativity so everyone can find their own solution, their own advice.Sam Clulow’s “Our Planet, Our Problem” is a great piece of writing that reminds us of who we are and what’s important for us and how we can live in a city and switch to a better, more thoughtful and natural life.Climate change is a topic all around the world now and it seems that many people are concerned about it and want to take action. But then, last month we had the busiest air travel day ever in history. Airplanes are accountable for one of the biggest parts of climate active emissions, so it’s key to reduce air travel as much as possible from today on. Coincidentally, this was also the hottest week measured in Europe ever. We as individuals need to finally cut down on flights, regardless of how tempting that next $50-holiday-flight to a nice destination might be, regardless of if it’s an important business meeting. What do we have video conferencing solutions for? Why do people claim to work remotely if they then fly around the world dozens of times in their life? There are so many nice destinations nearby, reachable by train or, if needed, by car.

Well, a team not made of stars but of people who love what they do, stand behind their company’s vision and can work together, support each other. Like a galaxy made of stars — where not every star shines and also doesn’t need to. Everyone has their place, their own strength, their own weakness. Teams don’t consist only of stars, they consist of people, and the most important thing is that the work and life culture is great. So don’t do a moonshot if you’re hiring someone but try to look for someone who fits into your team and encourages, supports your team’s values and members.In terms of your own life, take some time today to take a deep breath and recall what happened this week. Go through it day by day and appreciate the actions, the negative ones as well as the positive ones. Accept that negative things happen in our lives as well, otherwise we wouldn’t be able to feel good either. It’s a helpful exercise to balance your life, to have a way of invalidating the feeling of “I did nothing this week” or “I was quite unproductive.” It makes you understand why you might not have worked as much as you’re used to — but it feels fine because there’s a reason for it.NewsThree weeks ago we officially exhausted the Earth’s natural resources for the year — with four months left in 2019.

In Zimbabwe, for example, where 1 GB costs an average of $75.20, ranging from $12.50 to $138.46, 50MB is incredibly expensive. So reducing your app bundle size, image size, and website cost are directly related to how happy your users are when they browse your site or use your service. If it costs them $3.76 (50MB) to access your new sports shoe teaser page, it’s unlikely that they will buy or recommend it.BBC’s Toby Cox shares how they ditched iframes in favor of ShadowDOM to improve their site performance significantly.

first_imgThe Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Multilateral Convention now has 78 signatories, the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) recently announced. In addition, more jurisdictions are expected to sign onto the multilateral convention, the OECD added.BEPS Multilateral ConventionThe OECD developed the BEPS initiative to curb tax avoidance by taxpayers seeking to artificially shift profits to low or no-tax locations where there is little or no economic activity. Therefore, the  BEPS Multilateral Convention is designed to modify existing bilateral tax treaties to address treaty abuse, dispute resolution and more.New SignatoriesBarbados, Côte d’Ivoire, Jamaica, Malaysia, Panama, and Tunisia are the latest jurisdictions to sign the BEPS Multilateral Convention. Accordingly, this brings the total number of signatories to 78.“The signing of the multilateral convention is another major step towards updating the international tax rules through the swift implementation of the BEPS package,” OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría said. “Beyond saving signatories from the burden of re-negotiating thousands of tax treaties bilaterally, the convention results in more certainty and predictability for businesses, and a better functioning international tax system.”Other JurisdictionsMoreover, Algeria, Kazakhstan, Oman, and Swaziland have expressed their intent to sign the BEPS Multilateral Convention, the OECD reported. Further, several other jurisdictions, which the OECD did not name, are in discussions with the OECD about the convention. The U.S. is not a signatory to the multilateral convention, the OECD reported.By George L.

first_img2018 Billboard Artist to Watch Jessie Chris announced this week that she is embarking on a nationwide anti-bullying tour in which she will visit 100 middle schools across the country.Chris, the victim of extreme bullying when she was younger, has made promoting an anti-bullying platform a major element of her career and to date has visited more than 75 schools. She has previously served as an ambassador for Disney’s “Choose Kindness” campaign as well as Sylvania Lighting’s “Be the Light Campaign” and plans to share with the students her experiences with hopes of helping those who might be suffering as well.Chris last year made her national TV debut on the Today Show when she was the first country artist to be named Artist of The Month by the legendary Elvis Duran. She was also the youngest performer at the 2015 CMA Festival, returned to the iconic event in 2017 with a performance on the Radio Disney Country Stage, and last year joined Kelsea Ballerini, LoCash, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina on the Disney healing anthem “The Human Race” which reached #6 on iTunes Hot Tracks. Chris just released her new album “In It For You” earlier this month.“Having been able to overcome the bullying I faced and pursue my dreams is living proof that if one believes in themselves and turns down the volume of those who bully anything is possible. I am a big sister at home and I love visiting the schools and being a big sister to the kids when I speak with them. If I can help just one student that has been facing adversity then I have achieved success,” said Chris.Chris is partnering with the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE), a non-profit membership organization with 53,000 middle school educators as members, to identify middle schools to visit. “We appreciate Jessie’s commitment to helping our middle school students with her anti-bullying message and songs of hope and kindness,” said AMLE Executive Director Dr. William Waidelich.If you are a school that is interested in having Jessie visit, please contact her manager, Jeff Gulko at [email protected]last_img read more
