Sensis and White Horse released the last of three reports on Hispanic retail mobile use, entitled, Hispanic In-Store Mobile Experience: The Role of Culture. Like the previous reports, Social Shopping and The Deals Ethic, The Role of Culture presents findings based on a study of Hispanic mobile use during shopping. By understanding the Hispanic culture and their mobile habits, brands and retailers can more effectively design in-store experiences that are further in line with user desires.
Where Social Shopping focused on the social nature of Hispanic shopping and The Deals Ethic examined the value proposition for Hispanic shoppers, The Role of Culture shows how retail marketing and promotions should reflect an understanding of Hispanic culture. Uncovering cultural insights is a necessary step to designing and executing the optimal digital experience.
Unfortunately, retailers dont demonstrate a cultural sensitivity toward Hispanics beyond using Spanish in their materials, Sensis President Jos

In the past five years, the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry has endured adverse conditions due to the economic downturn and volatility in the financial markets. In this report, revenue consists of contributions, grants, investment income and realized gains. Prior to 2008, contributions helped drive double-digit revenue growth as wealthy individuals looked into philanthropy, making significant donations to foundations and driving industry revenue. However, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Anna Son, Industry revenue was crippled as businesses and individuals curbed their giving as a result of the recession and credit crisis. Consequently, IBISWorld estimates that industry revenue will decline at an average annual rate of 4.7% to $ 80.9 billion over the five years to 2012. However, as the economy continues to recover, industry revenue is expected to rebound 3.7% in 2012.
Due to the poor financial market performance, foundations struggled to generate investment income, further hurting revenue during the recession. Additionally, grantmaking foundations’ ability to reinvest profit into their company, as profit margins plunged from about 8.2% in 2007 to 5.1% in 2012. However, after the two consecutive years of a double-digit decline, revenue for the Donations, Grants and Endowment industry surged by 18.7% in 2010. This recovery was a result of large companies beefing up their charitable giving, including Walmart, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and others. Moreover, the commitment of many foundations to maintain their grant budgets or reducing the extent of reductions relative to their assets helped offset what would have been even great declines in foundation giving since 2009. Foundations also benefited from the relatively low level of competition that they face from other organizations. While the majority of industry operators are smaller organizations, even the largest foundations focus on giving to local causes, meaning that there is space in the market for most industry operators to coexist, says Son. For example, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives to charities in the Northwest region, while the Lilly Endowment is a major contributor to charities and causes in Indiana; however, neither entity competes with the other. Furthermore, the myriad of charitable causes, both domestically and internationally, ensures that market participants usually find their niche.
Industry revenue is forecast to increase steadily over the next five years. During this period, demand for industry services is expected to remain stable due to charities’ and individuals’ continued reliance on foundation giving; healthcare and education will continue to benefit from the largest shares of foundation grant dollars. In 2013, foundation giving is expected to remain consistent, posting only modest growth. While many foundations will likely be able to keep their giving steady over the next year, some are expected to have to make further cuts in order to preserve profit margins. However, as businesses return to profitability and individuals’ wealth improves, they are likely to raise their charitable giving, thus boosting industry revenue. Furthermore, corporations and other for-profit groups will continue to open trusts and foundations as a way to promote a positive image of their organizations.

The debates were heated. The deliberations were bloody. As expected, the protagonists gave no quarter. In fighting form, stakeholders of the sin products industry were back in the Senate making a case against the Malacanang-backed proposal to reform the current system of taxation on tobacco and alcohol. The proposed reforms, approved by the House of Representatives last June and now also championed by the health sector, are estimated to raise P31 billion every year in additional revenues for the government — P27 billion from the tobacco industry and P4 billion from the alcohol industry. The monies are supposed to fund universal health care. For 16 years, sin tax proponents have been pushing for reforms but have never succeeded. They claim that the current sin tax structure is flawed and that the government is, in fact, losing an average of P32 billion a year in uncollected excise taxes. But tobacco industry patrons warn of massive unemployment, rampant smuggling and a deluge of counterfeit cigarettes in case the Congress-approved bill is passed into law. With the Senate version of the sin tax bill still up in the air, the on-going debates have raised another dimension of the controversial issue — the tobacco lobby that has allegedly blocked proposed reforms and gagged media through the years. In a one-and-a-half-hour special report entitled “Bisyo,” veteran broadcast journalist Cheche Lazaro probes into the sin tax reform bill — its history, the pros and cons, and the …

The size of the world stock market was estimated at about .6 trillion at the beginning of October 2008. The total world derivatives market has been estimated at about 1 trillion face or nominal value, 11 times the size of the entire world economy. The value of the derivatives market, because it is stated in terms of notional values, cannot be directly compared to a stock or a fixed income security, which traditionally refers to an actual value. Moreover, the vast majority of derivatives ‘cancel’ each other out (ie, a derivative ‘bet’ on an event occurring is offset by a comparable derivative ‘bet’ on the event not occurring). Many such relatively illiquid securities are valued as marked to model, rather than an actual market price. The …

Question by : What happens when you get into an accident with no visible damage & no filed report or exchange of insurance?
I got into an accident earlier today. I was backing out of a parking space and the car behind me made a wide turn to take a spot and we collided at no more than 5mph. There was no visible damage on either car. We did not take pictures or exchange insurance information. She gave me her license plate number, name, phone number, and license ID and I did the same. Can this hurt me in the future? Can a claim be made against me using only this information?
Answer by Kenny
If no one reports it then nothing. That use to be the old days when cars had bumpers.

Technologies in the healthcare IT industry are converging with time and are far outpacing the legacy systems used by hospitals and healthcare providers. Recently, cloud technology has started replacing these legacy systems and offers easier and faster access to this data as defined by the way it is stored i.e. public, private or hybrid.
Cloud computing offers significant benefits to the healthcare sector; Doctors clinics, hospitals, and health clinics require quick access to computing and large storage facilities which are not provided in the traditional settings, moreover healthcare data needs to be shared across various settings and geographies which further burdens the healthcare provider and the patient causing significant delay in treatment and loss of time. Cloud caters to all these requirements thus providing the healthcare organizations an incredible opportunity to improve services to their customers, the patients, to share information more easily than ever before, and improve operational efficiency at the same time.

Our teams come to work every day of the year trying to satisfy our residents and meet some high expectations around service, programs, and care.
