Mothercare losses narrow

first_img Mothercare said its overseas sales have overtaken British figures for the first time. The company extended plans for new overseas store openings this year from 100 to 150, which would increase selling space by a fifth. That would push the total number of stores up to 1,270 in 54 countries. But while the international business is booming, the UK remains tough. Same-store sales fell by 3.2 per cent during the second quarter to end-September while international sales rose 14 per cent.

Florida Hospital Part of 2017 Most Wired health system

first_img From Florida Hospital Adventist Health System (AHS), Florida Hospital’s parent company, has been named a 2017 Most Wired health system based on the results of HealthCare’s Most Wired survey, released by the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Health Forum. This year marks the fifth consecutive year that AHS has received the honor.“Being named Most Wired is an honor, and we are blessed to have gifted and dedicated IT professionals and organizational leadership that is committed to implementing innovative IT solutions,” said Brent Snyder, Chief Information Officer for Adventist Health System. “We strive to leverage technology and innovation in ways that enhance care delivery and patient experience, and this recognition is a reflection of those intentional efforts”.HealthCare’s Most Wired survey, conducted between Jan. 15 and March 15, 2017, is published annually by Hospitals & Health Networks.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twittercenter_img I really wonder how Trump administration’s failure to provide an adequate healthcare plan that is fair and helps people to cover all types of sickness and diseases, accidents, etc. not just for young and healthy, but older people too, with pre-existing conditions, for all people, in all the states equally, at a reasonable cost, better than Obama Care, he promised…….. So now he just wants to axe Obama Care, as it is referred to……and has no viable better plan, and no timeline for one…..how will that affect hospitals, that is what I wonder? We know how it will affect the citizens of the US, many will die or suffer. The Trump administration is a failure, plain and simple, and they are the enemies of the American people. Any Congressional Senator who goes along with Trump on these healthcare issues are an ENEMY of the American citizens! Also any Congressional member who goes along with destroying SS, Medicare, Medicaid, and taking food away from children who need it are enemies of the American citizens, and need to be voted OUT OF OFFICE, and they need to be taken off of their finest healthcare as a elected official of Congress, that they get dirt cheap for themselves and their families, and get the same kind of junk healthcare insurance that they sit there and vote in for everyone else. Trump in his cowboy hat as seen on the computer and in the newspapers, looks so much like that pro wrestler that wore the cowboy hat, JR, with his Cadillac car with the bull horns attached to the front hood…..OMG, Trump ain’t no cowboy! Wish Trump would be impeached and the sooner the better, and then the entire Trump clan could move to Russia, the country Trump really loves more than America first…..ASAP, the sooner the better.

I could not believe that the hospital didn’t build a ramp off of the 429 to get to the hospital. My husband is educating me on the best way to go to the new hospital from where we are at, in the event I have to drive him there, or if he has to drive me there too, as the ambulance bill will be very high going way out there, but if totally necessary, we will call for an ambulance.last_img read more

Raise wages for people with disabilities!

first_imgDuring Workers World Party’s National Conference in New York on Nov. 15-16, some of the participants took advantage of a lunch break to picket in front of a nearby building housing Goodwill Industries. The issue was how Goodwill, which cultivates the reputation of helping people with disabilities, actually exploits them quite shamefully.Edward Yudelovich, an organizer of the protest and a co-chair of his union’s Committee on People with Disabilities, explained to the conference that the Fair Labor Standards Act, which established the minimum wage, excludes people with disabilities, as well as prisoners, immigrants and domestic workers. This has resulted in abysmally low wages for many workers at Goodwill.He pointed out that when the Attica prisoners rose in rebellion in September 1971 against inhuman conditions, their demands included “Apply the New York State minimum wage law to all state institutions” and “Stop slave labor.”Many of the people imprisoned in the U.S., he informed, “are people with disabilities who are regularly subjected to abuse, beatings, torture, denial of properly prescribed medication when it is medically necessary, and minimal accommodations to their disabilities.”Yudelovich cited the case of Jerome Murdough, a homeless African-American veteran, mentally disabled, “who was baked to death at Rikers Island in February while on anti-psychotic and anti-seizure medication, which made him more vulnerable to the over-100 degrees heat in his cell. Murdough had been arrested for trespassing in the stairwell of a city housing project to escape the cold.”He also invoked the words of Karl Marx to describe the world we are fighting for, one in which society’s wealth is distributed “from each according to our abilities, to each according to our needs.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The contractor will go block by block to repair the road once the pipelines are in place.Stern said the Army Corps of Engineers built a lot of the city’s water, sewage and storm drain lines in the 1930’s and 1940’s. The pipes are outdated and undersized for the population they currently support, she said.The storm drain lines will start along Bellaire Park Court and head north to Bellaire Drive South. Then, the lines will run west to the outfall along Trinity Trails. The water will eventually run into the Trinity River, according to the Transportation and Public Works Department.Chad Lorance from Tarrant Regional Water District said there is no way to filter and clean storm water in the drains without flooding the streets.The Water Department worked with TCU to end construction July 1 for TCU football season. Construction will resume January 1.Bellaire Drive South will be open from July to January, but all surrounding streets will remain under construction, according to the Transportation and Public Works Department.
