Our calculator will guess how many healthy years of life you…

first_img Mama Mia Reply Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 By Dr. Jay Vadiveloo, and first published in the conversation.comAs the old saying goes, the only things certain in life are death and taxes. While death is inevitable, the quality of life you experience until death is often within an individual’s control.This is what our team at the Goldenson Center for Actuarial Research chose to focus on by developing a rigorous measure of quality of life. How many healthy years of life do you have ahead before you become unhealthy?Everyone understands the benefits of living a long healthy life, but this also has implications for industry and society. Medical costs, financial planning and health support services are directly related to the state of health of an individual or community.We call this measure of quality of life “healthy life expectancy” and its complement “unhealthy life expectancy.” We define entering an unhealthy state as a severe enough state of disablement that there is no recovery, so you remain unhealthy until death.It follows that life expectancy – a measure of the total future years an individual is expected to live – is simply the two added together.CalculatingImagine a healthy 60-year-old male who exercises regularly, has a healthy diet and healthy body mass index and sleeps at least eight hours a night. By our estimate, he could have an additional 13 years of healthy living compared to his unhealthy counterpart. That’s 13 more years of quality living with family and loved ones.This is quite a startling revelation, not only because of the significant difference in healthy life expectancy between these two individuals, but also because this difference is driven by lifestyle choices within the individual’s control.So what factors contribute to a better healthy life expectancy? Two factors that are not lifestyle-related are age and gender. All other things being equal, healthy life expectancy decreases with age. Women have a longer healthy life expectancy compared to men.We have already seen that diet, exercise and sufficient sleep positively impact healthy life expectancy. Other positive factors that we have incorporated in our model include level of education, level of income, perception of one’s own state of health, moderate alcohol intake, not smoking and absence of Type 2 diabetes. The higher the level of education and income, the higher your healthy life expectancy. Having a positive perception of your state of health helps, too.Try it yourselfWant to know your own estimate of healthy years ahead? We developed a free online tool that lets you calculate healthy, unhealthy and total life expectancy. This is work in progress.This is the first time such a measurement tool has been developed. While it’s too early to validate the accuracy of our calculations with actual data, we have been careful to ensure that the model assumptions are based on established actuarial sources and the modeling results are logical and consistent.It should be noted that healthy life expectancy is simply an educated prediction. Unforeseen incidents – like being hit by a truck – could render this estimate invalid, no matter how well you manage lifestyle habits. Also, there could be other nonmeasurable factors impacting healthy life expectancy that we have not included in our model, like level of stress, a positive attitude to life or social connections.Putting our model to workOur team plans to explore some of these practical applications of healthy life expectancy in industry.For example, the concept of healthy life expectancy can help with retirement financial planning. Annual retirement spending should not be level across your life expectancy. More discretionary retirement spending should happen during healthy years and less during unhealthy years, while spending on basic expenses increases during unhealthy years.Insurance products can be also designed using healthy life expectancy measures in mind. This can protect an individual against additional basic living expenses during the unhealthy period. One such product could be a deferred long-term care or temporary deferred life annuity, where the deferral period is for healthy life expectancy and the temporary coverage is for the unhealthy period. This can be a significantly cheaper and a more needed product compared to what is available in the marketplace currently.Since healthy life expectancy is also related to quality of life and level of health, a relative index could compare an individual’s results against a benchmark healthy life expectancy for someone with “average” characteristics. This can then be used as an underwriting tool and to predict future health care costs. Our model could also serve as a patient screening tool for medical providers by incorporating more detailed lifestyle and dietary details as well as prior medical history information.We hope that other researchers and practitioners will continue to build on this. Then society could focus on not just prolonging life, but prolonging quality of life using our model. As the saying goes, “In the end, it is not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”Dr. Jay Vadiveloo is Professor and Director of the Goldenson Center for Actuarial Research at the University of Connecticut.

The shocking tale of how a foreign player’s experience in Japan soon turned extremely sour

first_imgFriday May 7, 2021 The shocking tale of how a foreign player’s experience in Japan soon turned extremely sour French rugby player Nicolas Kraska has broken his silence on the unbelievable story of his experience with a Japanese Top League club, including how he and other players were poorly treated, mismanaged and in some cases, allegedly robbed of what was due to them. ADVERTISEMENTWe recently posted a story exposing some of what was going on at the club, but after one of the players in question (a former Test rugby player) was told he wouldn’t be paid specifically because of that article, we were requested to take it down.After speaking to other reputable sources who told us tales of similar alleged experiences, we are giving Nicolas a platform for sharing his story.It’s a long and harrowing read, but hopefully some good will come of this being published.The following are Nicolas’ words, verbatim.Shimizu is a special club in Japan. It is an amazing club.Unlike other Japanese teams, players not employed by Shimizu can join this team as official players. As a result, foreigners are recruited through a company, Tokyo Athletic United, owned by Yohei Shinomiya, an ancient famous international player of teams composed by 7 players.To avoid dealing directly with foreign players, Shimizu addresses its requests to this company so that, in case of problems, Shimizu does not have to worry about legal fallout or other possible scandals.Yohei, who at the club is the High-Performance Manager, works closely with Niki Takahiro, an employee of Shimizu, who has the title of Chief Director. Both, manage the contracts and the budget allocated by Shimizu to foreigners.ADVERTISEMENTI signed my first contract with Shimizu Blue Sharks in March 2019. I had accepted a drop of more than 65% compared to the contract that I previously had signed with Toshiba.But to reassure me, they promised, if I played well, to re-sign the contract and make a significant increase next year. Anyway, once the contract was signed, while it had been agreed that they would pay the full tax amount, they told me that they could not have paid it in full and that I had to pay more than half by myself, corresponding to about 600,000 yen.To avoid paying this amount, they even proposed me not to pay the Japanese pension contribution; something my agent told me was illegal.The month after my arrival, at the time of the first paycheck, I was surprised not to receive a pay slip. I immediately asked to receive it, but one (my agent was called by Yohei and Niki) informed me that here there was not pay slip at all and if I would have asked too many questions and/or I was going to continue to ask for pay slips, I would have been fired on the spot.ADVERTISEMENTI was beginning to doubt the legality of their actions, but my wife was pregnant with our first child, and we were 10,000km far from France, so that I felt obliged to turn a blind eye and accept this situation.I asked anyway my foreign colleagues right to left if they too were finding their way of doing and managing our contracts bizarre.They all said they were, and they also had doubts about the legality of their actions. The season was going well for me in November I got a two-year contract offer and a 20% increase in my salary.I accepted immediately, even if it was not what I was promised, we were having a good life, the level of rugby was good, and I only had 3 training sessions a week.I had a lot of time with the family, and I was able to see my daughter growing up.However, a week after accepting the offer, Niki and Yohei came back to me and informed me that the company was refusing their own offer… but the increase would have still been 10%. But when I looked at the details of my budget (salary, apartment rental, tickets (airplane and taxes) I noticed that between the first and this offer the tax budget had not decreased while my salary was not as high.So, I asked why the tax budget was so high, considering the difference between what I owe to the state and the budget would have been returned to me to reimburse me for what I had advanced in the first year.Niki and Yohei kicked in and told me clearly that it was none of my business and if I would have asked questions again, the negotiations would have stopped, and I would have not been kept in the team.Feeling trapped, I preferred to accept and think about the positive: my wife and I were happy in Japan, I was spending a lot of time with my family and, the players were great.So again, I accepted and closed my eyes.At the end of the season, we returned to France. The Covid epidemic was starting to break out and I got a call from my agent telling me that I absolutely had to go back to Japan within three days or I would have been fired. We changed the tickets, and we went back to Japan immediately.An Australian player was unable to return in time, he was fired on the spot.During the pandemic, Pekahou Cowan negotiated with the club to return to Australia to play Super Rugby with the Forces. He signed a contract stating that if he would have been injured more than six months the contract would be terminated.Upon his return he had a small calf tear, Niki and Yohei sent him to do twice tests to estimate the downtime as they were trying to fire him. Both specialists were unanimous superficial injuries 3-4 weeks of unavailability only.Following these results, Pek’ had a meeting with Niki, who asked him for 100,000 yen in cash in compensation and 30% less on his monthly salary. Pek refused at first because he did not understand why he should have accepted. In his contract it was marked that if he had had 6 months of unavailability he could have been fired.Niki kept him for more than an hour in the meeting room and threatened him, if he did not accept, he would not be able to play anymore, no longer train and that he would have done everything to get him to resign and receive no compensation.In the end pek cracked and accepted 5% of the monthly salary plus the 100,000 yen in cash.As in a movie, Pek went out and came back with the cash, and he put them in Niki’s wallet. A week later same scenario, Pek decided to call his agent and told him there was no way he will pay again. His agent told him to pay so that the story would be over. At the end, he paid 100,000 yen in cash again.We arrived in January, I played 5 friendly matches. The whole team, the managers, the coaches, and Niki and Yohei were happy with me.So, I decided to ask my agent to start negotiating an increase for my last year of contract, Agatha was pregnant again, we were waiting for a new girl.They accepted very quickly the increase, more fully the rent of the apartment. I was able to return in mid-July and then leave at the beginning of September until early November to be at Agatha’s side during childbirth, as we could have not afforded a second birth in Japan.Niki and Yohei were aware of our situation. Two days later, my agent called me to inform me that there was a rumor, the Japanese league wanted to reduce the quota of foreigners and remove the quota of Asian passports holders, of which I was one of them.I asked him to inform the club and asked them what they intended to do if the rule was formalized because I did not want to find myself in a difficult situation. Niki and Yohei ignored my agent’s calls; it was impossible to have an interview with them and when we were able to agree on a date, they did not come.In mid-February, there were still no news and I started to worry, one of the South Afs club had just learned that he would have not been retained, and that his contract had been torn by Yohei. Jano Venter had received a three-year contract, which he had obviously signed and returned to Niki and Yohei, but while both parties had agreed and concluded by email the details of the contract, they had not signed it in return.Moreover, Jano negotiated with Yohei to bring his fiancée to Japan with a working visa via Tokyo Athletic United, to do so Yohei asked Jano to pay 150,000 yen. Jano asked for a receipt, Yohei didn’t appreciate the question and got mad.Two days later, Jano got informed he would be cut before the end of the season, no matter the three years contract.At that moment I started to really panic and decided to go to the head coach to explain my situation, hoping that he could have talked with Niki and Yohei. Unfortunately no return from them…On Tuesday, March 16, I got a call from my agent while I was at the club just where Niki and Yohei were. She informed me of my dismissal, and I had to leave the territory before my visa was expiring on March 28, because Yohei had stopped the process of renewing my visa while the end of my first term was March 31 and the end of our championship was on April 17.I learned a few days later that he had stopped the steps so that I could have not find other clubs in Japan. The Certificate of Eligibility at that time was issued only “to the dropper” because of the Covid, so that without a pre-existing work visa, it was currently exceedingly difficult to come to work. I also wanted to make it clear that the whole club was aware of my wife’s pregnancy, as were Yohei and Niki.Despite this, they had no pity or consideration and left me only 10 days to prepare everything. With Agathe 4 months pregnant and my one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, in 10 days we were forced to organize an international move, from Yokohama to Paris. We had to cancel gas, electricity, internet, phone plan contracts, pay local taxes etc.During these 10 days I never had a meeting with Niki and Yohei, I never had an explanation while I saw them every day.In addition, I learned that they did not want to pay severance pay or my match and goal bonuses.For example, I had A team goal bonus if we could get into the top four I would get that bonus. We set this goal together during a team meeting. And when I asked my agent what was going on, she came back to me to tell me that Niki had informed her that our goal was top 4 and 1 win against a Top League team. I went crazy, I called coaches, video analysts, translators, and players; everybody confirmed to me that he was lying, our goal was well top 4.Before returning to France, I asked to sign my breach of contract, I never got it back. We landed in Paris on Wednesday, March 24. On the 25th I decided to tweet my bitterness without going into details.I was fortunate to see so much sympathy, a lot of people contacted me and put me in contact with lawyers and journalists to help me but also to make my story heard. Rugby is a real family.The tweet was brought to the ears of Yohei and Niki, who decided to call my agent. They told him that if I wanted to receive what I was expected to receive, I had to delete my tweet and post a thankful message.Under threat and given the current situation of the world, I gave up and I decided to receive my compensation.

Møller Architects, in collaboration with DinellJohansson, has been announced as winner of the HSB Stockholm architectural competition. The winning scheme includes three “ultra-modern residential high-rises” planned for Stockholm’s city center. Only one of these proposals will actually be built, including the world’s tallest wooden skyscraper. Completion of the chosen tower is set for 2023, the 100th anniversary of the competition organizer and Sweden’s largest housing association, HSB. View the three project proposals after the break. Project 1: World’s Tallest Wooden Skyscraper Save this picture!Wooden Skyscraper Ground Level. Image Courtesy of C.F. Møller and DinellJohansson+ 22The residential skyscraper, which will reach 34 stories and be built from a wooden structure with stabilizing concrete cores, will make the building the tallest wooden skyscraper in the world. Each apartment will have a glass-fronted balcony and the roof will be home to an array of solar panels. In including a café, nursery, gym, bicycle storage and a winter garden for shared allotments in the scheme, the “social sustainability” of the project is made clear. According to the architects, “pillars and beams will be constructed using solid and cross-laminated timber and inside the apartments floors.” “Ceilings and window frames will be made from wood, allowing the material to also be visible from the outside through the large windows.” For C.F. Møller, wood was the natural choice when it came to selecting a material for innovative residential development: “it is an environmentally friendly and durable material which creates a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and also constitutes a very efficient protection against fire.” More details here.Project 2: Office Conversion, Fleminggatan 4 Save this picture!Fleminggatan 4: view from across the water. Image Courtesy of C.F. Møller and DinellJohansson+ 22A combination of new-built and transformative design work has been applied to a building formerly occupied by Tekniska Nämdhuset, part of the City of Stockholm. A large proportion of the existing structure has been retained in the three structures with the addition of two mediating buildings. Together with the jetty and a set of new terraced stairs facing the water, the buildings are opened up “to their surroundings [creating] a new, recreational meeting place in central Stockholm.”All three new buildings have “a characteristic façade and a wooden structure.” Described by the architects as “a resource-efficient and durable housing project”, the proposal offers opportunities for a variety of different kinds of apartments aimed a diverse clientele. A staffed lobby area on the ground floor could provide residents with, for example, a walk-in fridge for take-away food, the opportunity to book bicycles and cars from a shared pool, offering people ways to make their everyday life more socially sustainable. Project 3: Vertical Urban Quarter, Hagastaden Save this picture!Vertical Urban Quarter. Image Courtesy of C.F. Møller and DinellJohansson+ 22This multi-story housing complex is intended to be a landmark in the new quarter of Hagastaden. Alongside four other planned buildings, the design will accommodate a supermarket, café and restaurant, magazine library and large outdoor spaces. According to the architects, the complex “will also give the city new visual experiences including its timber structure, green rooftop terraces and a playground on one of the stories, as well as a dynamic, varied façade that reflects the various types of flats behind it”. The building, described as “deceptively simple”, houses a large number of homes within a series of simple volumes. The project will ultimately house family homes, student housing, urban villas, lofts and penthouses and even care homes for senior citizens. Residents will have access to a number of communal facilities, such as a kindergarten and workshops, all designed to make life easier for those who live there.

US – #WeeklyAddress July 31-August 6: Sessions to prosecute more leakers

first_img to go further NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News August 7, 2017 US – #WeeklyAddress July 31-August 6: Sessions to prosecute more leakers News Organisation June 3, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United States Help by sharing this information RSF_en News 1. Jeff Sessions says DOJ will review policies on subpoenaing reporters in leak casesAt a press conference on Friday, August 4, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Department of Justice has more than tripled the number of leak investigations compared with the number of investigations that were open at the end of the previous administration, and that it will review policies on media subpoenas in leak cases. Concluding the press conference, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats addressed leakers directly: “If you improperly disclose classified information, we will find you, we will investigate you, we will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law, and you will not be happy with the result.”Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said on “Fox News Sunday” that the Justice Department is not targeting journalists. “The attorney general has been very clear that we’re after the leakers, not the journalists,” he said.Sessions’ announcement comes about a month after a number of Senate Republicans on the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs issued a report claiming media leaks under the current administration are a threat to national security. 2. Amid culture of hostility toward reporters, press freedom organizations launch website tracking abusesRSF joined a coalition of more than 20 press freedom organizations to launch the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker on Wednesday August 2. The tracker, a nonpartisan website documenting abuses of U.S. press freedom, is led by the Committee to Protect Journalists and the Freedom of the Press Foundation, and serves as a repository for this data at a time when the media climate in the United States has become increasingly hostile. RSF sits on the steering committee for the collaborative project. Data collected on the U.S. Press Freedom Tracker shows 19 journalists have been arrested in the course of their work in 2017 and at least 10 are currently facing charges; at least four journalists have been stopped at the border; and 11 have faced physical attacks. 3. Every White House press briefing for the past two weeks has been on-airAfter several weeks in which reporters voiced concerns about off-camera White House press briefings, every briefing since July 21 has been on-camera. This is consistent with former Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci’s tweet on July 24 that “TV cameras are back on,” which he later confirmed was a reference to press briefings. For three weeks prior to July 21, reporters had taken issue with the bans on video and audio recordings.

first_imgLinkedin WhatsApp Twitter NewsBreaking newsFormer Limerick hurler launches penalties for autismBy John Keogh – July 10, 2015 632 Facebook Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Print Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img Email (L to R) Tadgh Hayes, Paul Scholes and Tommy WalshFORMER Limerick hurler Tadgh Hayes from Doon has launched a new fundraising initiative for Irish Autism Action, backed by former Manchester United star Paul Scholes and Kilkenny All-Ireland champion hurler Tommy Walsh.The initiative, Penalty for Autism, asks members of the public to take a penalty of any kind – from soccer to hockey – in any location and post it on a social media network of their choice.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Participants are then asked to text the word PENALTY to 50300 to donate €2 to Irish Autism Action (IAA), and nominate two people to do the same.Tadgh is an employee of Wyeth Nutrition in Askeaton, and IAA is the staff charity of the year for the company and its NestléIreland site in Citywest, Co Dublin.“When I approached the IAA with the idea, they thought it was great and decided to run with it. What we were doing just so happened to coincide with Paul and Tommy being available for the launch and we got photographs taken with them,” explained Tadgh.He added that the penalty challenge can be as simple as two children taking shots outside the back lawn “but if somebody can get out in front of 80,000 people at Croke Park, they can do that as well”.Ken Whelan, chief executive, IAA said: “We’re urging the public to get behind this fun initiative which will raise much needed funds for our work. IAA supports more than 50,000 people in Ireland have a diagnosis of autism and their families. Research shows that for each person diagnosed, five other lives are affected.”100 per cent of text costs go to Irish Autism Action across most network providers.

first_img Previous Article Next Article Male graduates are twice as likely than their female counterparts to earn asalary above £25,000, a CIPD survey reveals. The research also shows that for every five women graduates in the £10,000to £15,000 salary bracket, there are just three men. Report author Gerwyn Davies said, “It appears that female graduateshave lower expectations than their male counterparts when it comes to startingsalary.” But despite the gender pay gap, the survey of more than 750 graduatesreveals that respondents of both sexes are very happy in the workplace andconfident about the future. More than 90 per cent of graduates are positiveabout their career prospects and 87 per cent feel secure in their jobs. Davies said, “Our survey also shows that graduates are a knowledgeable,ambitious and happy bunch who have long-term career prospects foremost in theirminds. “Employers and managers are clearly responding to their growing needsas consumers, with graduates reporting very high levels of satisfaction fornearly all aspects of their work.” The survey reveals the nearly two-thirds of graduates think beginning acareer is the most important reason for accepting their first job, compared to7 per cent who highlight a lack of money. More than 80 per cent of new graduates are successful when they attempt torenegotiate their salaries and the majority of respondents receive startingsalaries of £15,000 to £20,000.
