Selver Forbes chime in on NHIP Finances

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 1, 2016 – Independent Candidate O’Brien Forbes said calling for resignations in the aftermath of the NHIP financial situation is premature and political posturing.The All Island Candidate, who is running as an independent said even an attempt to fix things now would only seem reactionary and like a political gimmick; for Forbes the best move is and I quote, “a thorough audit of the NHIP books be carried for the benefit of the people. NHIP plays a vital role in the lives of our residents and it must remain an institution that is free of the dark shadows of corruption, political chicanery and maladministration.”Clarence Selver; a former Health Minister for the TCI and candidate for the all island race is also chiming in, he thanks Tamera Robinson, the NHIB Interim CEO, for her courage in delivering on the information to Cabinet.Selver called the PNP Government spin doctors in their comments in defense of themselves as the financial reality of a $6 million dollar deficit was last week exposed; Selver said he believes the intention was for the PNP Administration was to raise taxes on the people to pay for the mounting medical bills at the health plan.“This PNP government is saying that NHIP is experiencing financial problems because of increase demand for healthcare.  How come the managers, and the Minister of Health, and the Minister of Finance did not bother to look at the reports years ago, and identify the problems and address them, or did they take a policy position that it does not matter what is happening at NHIP, they would just continue to find the money by taxing the people.”Clarence Selver in a statement to Magnetic Media said there is no excuse for the unhealthy state of affairs and that there should be a breakdown on who is making the demands on health care and he chastised the Health Minister, Rufus Ewing for keeping the financial audit report of the Hospitals away from the House of Assembly and by extension away from the people of these islands.last_img read more

Samsung reportedly asks for Galaxy Fold review units back over screen issues

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales.

HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) Galaxy Fold gives foldable phones a black eye Tidal 3-month family subscription: $5.99 (save $54) Samsung is reportedly seeking the return of its Galaxy Fold review units. Sarah Tew/CNET Having already delayed the Galaxy Fold’s April 26 launch, Samsung is now reportedly retrieving review units after problems arose with screens on some of the foldable phones.The company is asking reviewers to send the sample phones back, Reuters reported, citing an anonymous source, after some of them highlighted screen issues last week. Samsung had initially told CNET that its review period would last 10 days before the Fold was to be returned, leaving just a few days’ gap between the return date and the original delivery date of the Galaxy Fold we ordered.The problems affecting the $1,980 devices included screen damage, flickering and (in a single reported case) a bulge. CNET’s Galaxy Fold review unit remains undamaged. $155 at Google Express Sarah Tew/CNET $261 at Daily Steals via Google Express Best Buy I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.
