Bringing eHealth to Latin America Service Assurance Experts ISPM Take the Temperature at the TM Forums LatAm InFocus Event in Sao Paulo, from 25th 26th March

Sao Paulo, Brazil and London, UK (PRWEB UK) 6 March 2014

ISPM, a leading vendor of flexible service assurance and management software for telecommunications and IT infrastructure announced that it will be showing how barriers to the adoption of eHealth services can be easily overcome through the realisation of simple but powerful business solutions supported by clear business models.

Solution expert Washington Tavares will demonstrate how eHealth solutions can be used to capture and display patient data in real-time and from a willing audience as an example of the kind of business models and practices that can be realised through eHealth initiatives.

The purpose of the demonstration is to highlight ways in which stakeholders can collaborate to deliver practical, compelling solutions that benefit both providers and patients alike, while at the same time illustrating how new business models can be realised successfully. Despite the growing attention paid to eHealth market opportunities, there has been little progress to date in the delivery of relevant and tangible solutions that both meet business objectives and deliver enhanced patient care.

In order to show how barriers to eHealth market growth can be overcome, ISPM’s demonstration will focus on one of a number of potential business models that can be delivered today. At the event, ISPM will show how remote monitoring solutions that provide vital data for patient care can be realised to deliver on the promise of eHealthcare opportunities. The capture and delivery of simple, yet critical measurements and their incorporation into medical systems is the first step along the road to the deployment of large-scale eHealth projects that will deliver clear benefits to all stakeholders and is likely to be among the first real business cases for adoption of such services.

“eHealth is hugely promising and yet hasn’t really gained the expected momentum,” commented Washington Tavares, co-author of the award-winning project, premiered at the TMF’s Digital Disruption event in San Jose in 2013. “We will demonstrate the success of our efforts by taking the temperature and blood pressure of delegates in the audience. The data will be delivered in real-time to patient monitoring solutions and presented in a usable way to practitioners. Demonstrating this simple, yet powerful solution provides a clear indication of how new multi vendor eHealth business models can be realised and delivered successfully.”

Critical to the success of eHealth initiatives is commonality of approach and interoperability of systems. This requires standardisation and close collaboration between stakeholders to ensure reuse of components. However, many previous eHealth initiatives have floundered.

“This is because insufficient attention has been paid to the standardisation efforts required to make solutions and data reusable, interoperable and, above all, cost effective,” added Mr Tavares. “Now, ISPM has collaborated with other stakeholders to show how relevant and practical solutions can be created with common components and best practice from telecoms and IT networks, which shows how we are exploring ideas for business models, commercialisation and operational service implementation. The way to stimulate and accelerate adoption of eHealth services is to provide tangible, workable solutions that prepare the market and all stakeholders and demonstrate to CSPs how they can be capitalised.”

The efforts of ISPM and others clearly show how patient and business benefits can be delivered in tandem, while capitalising on industry initiatives to achieve best practice, such as the TM Forum’s Business Process Framework (eTOM). eTOM resolves interoperability and standardisation issues to help catalyse new opportunities in eHealth. Such initiatives provide clear templates for the emergence of the required business models and will help stimulate eHealth service realisation in Latin America and elsewhere.

ISPM will be joined by local healthcare providers at the TMF’s LatAm Focus, who will explain how the initiatives help meet their needs and will help stimulate eHealth opportunities in Latin America.

BearingPoint launches FATCA Reporting project for one of the largest European financial services groups

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 10 February 2014

Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint was selected by Société Générale Group, one of Europe’s largest financial services groups, to provide a solution to the new tax reporting requirements imposed by the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). The agreement sees French bank Société Générale Group join 50 banks worldwide in using BearingPoint’s tax reporting solution, FiTAX, in order to comply with the US Internal Revenue Services’ (IRS) FATCA regulation.

The multi-national bank, serving 32 million customers worldwide, will benefit from BearingPoint’s extensive experience in dealing with tax reporting as well as its long standing collaboration in the US and Luxembourg with one of the world’s leading auditing companies. The comprehensive knowledge transfer BearingPoint offers will enable Société Générale Group to share the know-how with a further 16 countries globally where a local implementation of FiTAX is planned.

“We are very pleased with Société Générale’s decision to choose us as their partner for this forward looking regulation project. The FiTAX-FATCA solution will allow Société Générale to benefit from a cutting-edge technology to comply with FATCA reporting requirements,” said Ronald Frey, Partner at BearingPoint.

The FiTAX solution

FiTAX is BearingPoint’s standard software solution for banks and insurers to produce the tax reports required by IRS and European Union Tax authorities, including QI (Qualified Intermediary) reporting, EU-Savings Directive Reporting and FATCA reporting.

BearingPoint offers extensive experience in tax reporting services and a range of products focusing on tax regulatory law:

    FiTAX QI: IRS reporting for Qualified Intermediaries. Chapter 3.
    FiTAX Recon: data reconciliation with custodians.
    FiTAX EU: EUSD reporting to foreign tax authorities.
    FiTAX FATCA: IRS reporting for FFIs. Chapter 4.

FiTAX has been updated to include the advanced insight into not only the reporting requirements as negotiated in the IGA 1 (“Inter Governmental Agreement” – Model 1) between France and the US, but also the IGA 1 agreements of other countries with the US, the IGA 2 (e.g. Switzerland and Japan) as well as the Final Regulation reporting requirements applicable for all countries which do not conclude an IGA with the US.

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes Presents the Make God Bleed Music Video by Big Sty


Richmond, VA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announces the release of the “Make God Bleed” Music Video by Big Sty. The project, presented by Coast 2 Coast Video Distribution, is now available for view on YouTube. The video is directed by George “Jig” Louden and shot by Hugh Burruss.

Big Sty is a rapper from Richmond, VA representing the DMV area. Always focused on the progress of Hip Hop culture, Big Sty tackles the philosophical questions surrounding what it means to be Hip Hop. A product of the powerful messages shared by Hip Hop legends NWA and Kool G Rap, Big Sty does not seek to only make a room bounce but focuses on bringing original lyrics and concepts that speak to the trials and tribulations of the modern Black man. He comes from a long tradition of socio-political conscious MCs who have directly influenced his decision to pick up the mic, some of these influences are KRS 1, Ice Cube, LL Cool J, Biggie and Tupac.

Making his debut in 2004 with his hit single “It’s A Problem”, Big Sty laid it all out going after Hip Hop’s elite in what could only be described as a metaphorical blizzard freezing the music industry, executives, and artists in their tracks. The single caught a lot of attention but when it came to the fans received nothing but rave reviews. Building consistent street buzz with this mixtape series entitled “Best of Big Sty Vol. 1 and Vol. 2” he also released a double album titled “Stycology: Don’t Get Mad, Get Money” which set out to unite the Richmond VA scene showcasing much of the local talent. Beyond expanding his audience through recorded music Big Sty has perfected his live show opening for the likes of Juelz Santana, MC Lyte, Scarface, Outkast, and Lil’ Kim. A devote advocate for the culture, Big Sty continues to unite his scene and carry on the tradition of true Hip Hop. For more information on Big Sty check him out on his Twitter at @TheRealBigSty.

MLK Day Ad: D.C. Congresswoman and Civil Rights Leader Says Dr. King Would Demand End to Washington NFL Team Name


Oneida Nation Homelands (NY) (PRWEB) January 16, 2014

As part of its season-long Change the Mascot campaign to end the use of the R-word slur by Washington’s NFL team, the Oneida Indian Nation of New York today released a new radio ad entitled “Civil Rights” featuring civil rights leader and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.). Having helped organize Dr. King’s 1963 March on Washington, Norton says in the ad that if Dr. King were alive today, he would support the Change the Mascot campaign. The latest radio spot is set to run over Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend in Washington, D.C., as well as in Denver and Seattle, the sites of the NFL’s conference championship games.

“As the lone congressional representative of the District of Columbia and a renowned civil rights leader, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton is a uniquely powerful voice telling the NFL that it must stop the Washington team from continuing to promote a dictionary-defined racial slur,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter. “As we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King this weekend, the NFL should honor his crusade for equality and mutual respect by finally using its power to change the Washington team’s name.”

As the Change the Mascot campaign’s radio ads have aired throughout the current NFL season, public health experts, civil rights groups, editorial boards, city councils, sports-industry icons, members of Congress from both parties, and the President of the United States have all spoken out against the Washington team’s continued use of the R-word.

Added Halbritter: “From city councils to top editorial boards to Members of Congress to the President of the United States, those supporters who have joined the Change the Mascot campaign understand a very simple truth: marketing a team with a slur against Native peoples is unacceptable, especially when the team represents our nation’s capital. The fact is that we don’t deserve to be treated as the target of such an epithet, we deserve to be treated as what we are: Americans.”

Last month, the membership of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the nation’s premier civil and human rights coalition representing more than 200 diverse national organizations, voted unanimously for a resolution urging the owner of the Washington NFL franchise to change the team’s offensive name.

The latest ads will air on radio stations WMAL in Washington, D.C., KDSP in Denver and KIRO in Seattle. You can learn more about the campaign and download the new ad at http://www.changethemascot.org.

Full text of the “Civil Rights” ad:

CONGRESSWOMAN HOLMES NORTON: “Hello, I am Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton. It is my privilege to represent the residents of the District of Columbia.

The residents of the capital of our nation have always tried to set an example for tolerance and mutual respect. Yet the current name of our NFL football team stands in stark contrast to these values. Many of our residents, like me, were part of the civil rights movement or identify strongly with its goals and philosophy. We recognize that the Change the Mascot campaign to end the use of the ‘R-word’ is both a moral and civil rights issue in keeping with our city’s respect for the dignity of all people.

We have no doubt that if Martin Luther King Jr. could speak today, he would lend his support to the current efforts of our Native American brothers and sisters. We know from our history as African Americans in this country that offensive terms not only should, but can, be cast aside if we do not retreat into silence.

The Washington football team should change the mascot and make the name of our team a source of pride that honors D.C.’s tradition of respect for all Americans.”

Listening to Dennis Prager this morning. He is so deeply intellectual, so thoughtful, and so absolutely invested in the art of thinking, I just wonder why I waste my time elsewhere. Wonderful.

Words fail.

I loved him like he was my own blood. His family, that amazing family, let me love them like they were mine. I´ve got no blood that I know of, save that which came from me, (and that to whom God gave me), and one thing I know is that we make the family we have from those who love us. That´s all that matters. My dad´s dad is gone, leaving one sweet, wonderful memory, and my other grandfather… that´s not for now. But God blessed me with an uncounted number of grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins and friends who have known me from the time I was four years old. They knew me through all of the awful times and bad hair, bad fashion, bad choices, bad boyfriends — they knew me and loved me in a way I don´t deserve. The way family loves you.

Grandpa John was the first person I remember meeting in what would become my large, glorious, extended family at Valley Baptist Church. I had to be but four, and it was hot and bright and everyone was so large. He was as tall as the sky, it seemed, lanky and sunburned in that way that people who work hard outside seem to be. He shook my hand, like I was a grown-up. Like I was just as important as my father, who had come to assist with the shepherding of this small congregation.

And then he was in my life. Always. He´d take my dad fishing, take us all fishing. He and Sunshine would bring catfish to potlucks. Delicious, wonderful, amazing catfish. His son in law became my youth pastor and friend. His granddaughter had the most beautiful smile — like her mother´s, like his — that didn´t just light up the room, it bathed it in light. It dazzled.

And they were all family. After I grew up and moved away, I lost contact, being a normal, selfish young adult. I brought my kids back once or twice, came for funerals and weddings and memorial services. More mourning than celebrating, unfortunately. This last time, mourning an amazing man I´d also known my entire life, my daughter spent a long, lazy afternoon with Grandpa John and Sunshine, listening to catfish stories and just sitting at the feet of these people who were so dear to me.

She cried a bit today when I told her he was gone, and she understands what it means. As we live our lives, we collect memories of those who have gone on before us. I know I´m not the only one whose life has been completely altered by the love of Grandpa John and his brood. I know there are scores of people who were waiting for him, his own family and the family God brought into his life. I´d like to think he´ll take a minute to sit with my oldest, give her a hug. And I can´t get the image of Charis — smiling, waiting — out of my head. He used to have ties with the pictures of his kids, grandkids, and great grandkids printed on them, so proud of his beautiful family. I don´t aim to hijack the sorrow of others, I just loved him. I love them all. Their love is part of who I am, and it always will be.

Words fail. Part of me can´t wait to see all of you again.

 

Government ain’t good for nothing but to get in a man’s way.

It’s been awhile since I’ve felt like writing, as I cannot seem to read the headlines without feeling an elevation in my blood pressure. It didn’t used to be like this, you know. I used to be somewhat detached though passionate – though perhaps that was on account of my boundless optimism. (Ha ha.) I’m weary of the world at 36, and each year my capacity for hope diminishes. I look at what this administration has wrought and I settle into a resignation that is as deep as it is paralyzing.

History shows us that things do not remain static. Civilizations deteriorate, empires crumble. The center cannot hold, as a wise man once said. Things fall apart. Societies disintegrate and social order erodes. It is inevitable, and it is the way of this fallen world. It’s okay. I’m currently incubating new life – which I am very excited about, actually – and life goes on. The America my son (we’ll know for sure at the end of the month, but we’ve got some confirmation that it’s “probably” a boy) grows up in with his older sister will be very different from the one my sister and I experienced. And it makes me sad. I know I don’t want to raise them in California, I know that much, but the California model will spread across the country, a creeping cancer, insidious and poisonous.

Having lived in California for almost ten years has made me much more of a libertarian than I used to be. Or maybe I’m more of a Browncoat than I used to be. Leave me and mine alone.

Having said all of that, I am trying to be more hopeful. Mark Levin’s Liberty Amendments and Ted Cruz’s recent efforts have given me hope. I want to do more than just keep flyin’, and I’m praying for a sea change in the attitudes of the American public. All we can hope to do is defy the overbearing, brutish and obviously thuggish tactics of an out of control administration and fight like hell for the values and liberty this country was founded on. In whatever capacity presents itself.

Whatever that means.

Defiance.

So about 17% of the government is shut down. Most of the programs and departments included in this shutdown have apparently been handpicked to cause maximum discomfort to the American people. How about we start doing for ourselves? States start managing their respective parks, coordinating their respective Amber Alert systems, making sure essential services are maintained.

We’re not helpless without the government leviathan. We’re better off without it. This is by no means a massive shutdown — I’m still getting my mail, for Pete’s sake. Obama’s mask is slipping, and we need to tell the political class that they can suck it. We’re better off on our own, with a trimmed down central government.

Defy “authority.” This is your country. Take care of it.

Hi there.

I was ready to dismiss this at first blush, my thought being that Obama wasn’t necessarily responsible for the actions of his brother, Malik. But the article contains some pretty uncomfortable evidence, which could explain the president’s odd stance toward the Muslim Brotherhood.

I don’t necessarily the energy or time time dissect this, but the article — as well as Walid Shoebat’s original post — speaks for itself.

Painting with broad brushes.

On Memorial Day weekend, our president gave a flowery, superficially presidential speech about sacrifice and expressed his concern that our soldiers weren’t fully appreciated by the public at large, and yet, in the days previous, he and his defense secretary made sure to remind everyone that our servicemen and women are really nothing more than a government-funded group of sex offenders. Perhaps I’m just paying more attention to it than I was before, but I’ve been hearing a lot about the sexual integrity of the military in the last four or five months.

Oh, and there’s this.

I’m not maintaining that our current military doesn’t have its problems. Hardly. Sex scandals are always tres magnifique, and military sex scandals seem to capture our imagination a bit more, with the power and corruption running deeper and for higher stakes in a somewhat mysterious branch of the governmental bureaucracy. Should it be cleaned up? Yeah. Should we encourage our servicemen and women to practice restraint and decorum, holding them to a higher standard than the undisciplined idiots who are out here, not even living their lives but just bumping into things in the civilian world? Absolutely.

But is a commencement speech at the Naval Academy on Memorial Day weekend the appropriate place to lecture on the subject? It seems… insulting. And inappropriate. And in line with this administration’s ongoing attempt to diminish the reputation of the military in the mind of the civilian. Why respect an organization that apparently sanctions rape and harassment and general nastiness? It should be no secret that this president does not hold our fighting men and women in high regard, even while he is their commander in chief. Chipping away at the respect we civilians have for our soldiers is essential for his ongoing assault against the military. Civilians won’t protest the shrinking of a military they despise and distrust, will they?

Our president is a part of an academic community that sees our military superiority — and by extension, the military itself — as something shameful, something that must be completely done away with. Each and every reminder of its failures, faults and scandals will be used to accomplish this.

We must in turn remember that though there are assholes aplenty in the military, there are thousands of men and women of integrity who do this country proud. There are men and women who live up to and surpass the standards set for them by their predecessors and make this country’s military one of the most decent, restrained, disciplined and humane in history. Of the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen that I know personally, I can name more than a handful of exemplary human beings. People who impress me with their strength of character and faith. Painting these people with the broad brush of sexual predator would be neither fair nor accurate.

Help for Heroes.

It’s coming.
woolwichThis is Lee Rigby, the soldier run down and hacked to death in Woolwich by savage beasts masquerading as people. He had a wife and son, and a family that loved him. Remember his name, his face.

The West cannot be defeated by military might, so the enemy adapts. They know our weakness — our investment in denial stemming from our cultural relativism — and they are betting we will break under a prolonged assault of truly asymmetrical proportions. We will either change our response to terrorism or we will perish. It’s as simple as that. PM Cameron sounded strong and resolute yesterday in his response to the atrocity. Contrast that with our own president in the wake of Bengazi and the murder of his personal representative in Libya. From a foreign policy standpoint, everything out of Obama’s mouth is a sickening display of weakness and provincialism. It’s embarrassing. It’s depressing.

I think we’re on our own.

As an aside, I thought it particularly relevant that the only people to confront those animals in Woolwich were women. I’m proud of my sex. I’m wondering where the men were, however, and why they would let a soldier die in the street and let their women approach them. It’s troubling.
