    The Private Sector Comes Through Again! Jobs, ACA, Speeches And Roads

    in Politics Conservative

    What a nice Jobs Report. Not perfect, but nice. It has a lot of what I look for. Besides job growth, we had signs of less discouragement as 350,000+ people began looking for work again. This led to an uptick in the unemployment rate, but for all the right reasons. That being said, there still reason to raise an eyebrow (or two), but overall, it was a third month in a row of encouraging news.


    Obamacare is under attack. We will look at this upcoming Supreme Court Case, King v Burwell. What will happen this time? Will Roberts jump ship again? Will it be Kennedy this time. I'll tell you why Obamacare opponents should not get their hopes up. The intent of congress will rule this ruling.


    And back to Netanyahu .... As the Grinch said about Christmas, maybe this speech isn't just a speech. Maybe this speech is a little bit more. I wonder which story will have more staying power .... Brian Williams foggy memory or the Netanyahu uproar. In any case, there is now backlash to the backlash and we will talk about it.


    And in that same region, John Kerry says we are 'on the road' to defeating ISIS. I think the Allstate Mayhem dude keeps re-calculating Kerry's GPS. What road is Kerry talking about? Has that road even been built yet? I wonder.


    All this and more Monday night at 8pm EST ..... Come jump into my pond.

  • The Private Exchange FORUM Pre-Conference Episode

    in Business

    With only a few days until the next Private Exchange FORUM kicks off in Baltimore, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field will welcome special guests from PlanSource and benefitalign -- sponsors of the upcoming event -- to the program for a comprehensive discussion on all things private exchanges.


    The first guest on this week's program will be George Tzinas, the chief experience officer at benefitalign, a comprehensive, cloud-based platform that enables your organization to rapidly launch shopping and enrollment solutions -- including private exchanges -- across all lines of business. In this interview, George and the hosts will review of how employers, brokers and some states are looking to health insurance exchanges to support the needs of their enrollees. George will also provide a snapshot of who is currently using a private exchange and why and some of the key points to consider when launching an exchange.


    The second guest on the show will be Scott Carver, president of PlanSource. In this interview, Scott and the hosts will discuss recent news from PlanSource, outline the private exchange model and analyze how its growing popularity is reshaping the industry. Forty-five percent of employers say they are considering private exchanges for their full-time employees before 2018. Scott will also address some of the questions facing employers as they determine the best way to administer employee benefits and explain the range of private exchange models available and the advantages of each.

    Technology, Voluntary Benefits & Private Exchanges

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz are live in the studio with special guests from Limelight Health – a Silicon Valley startup – and Liberty Mutual – a Fortune 100 company – for conversations on technology, voluntary benefits, private exchanges and much more.


    The first guest is Michael Lujan, co-founder of Limelight Health, a Silicon Valley-based technology company aimed to help simplify health insurance. In this interview, Michael and the hosts will discuss how technology is changing benefits and HR for the better. Technology is disrupting many industries, impacting how we get around (Uber) and where we stay (Airbnb). On the other hand, the health insurance and the human resource industries have been dependent on paper forms and fax machines for far too long. Both industries are going through radical changes, and Silicon Valley is investing billions to help modernize the process and help us become more informed, engaged and connected consumers.


    The second guest on this week's show will be Ryan Thomson, director of private exchanges at Liberty Mutual Insurance, the number one employer-sponsored group voluntary auto and home program in the country. As voluntary benefits continue to play an increasingly important role in employers benefit programs and strategies, employers are turning to a number of “non-traditional” benefit offerings like pet insurance, legal services and auto & home programs in an effort to appeal to and engage diverse workforces. In this segment, Ryan and the hosts will discuss how employers are integrating discounted auto & home programs into their benefits strategy as well as some of the benefits these programs can provide to both employers and employees.

    PRIVATE SESSION WITH MICHAEL ELLEGION

    in Spirituality

    I have not yet edited out the wait time up front. The call begins at 19:00.  It was suggessted I have a session with Michael Ellegion to ease people's confusion - too much mis and dis-information. I spoke with Voltra, Cosmic Psychotherapist and Sananda. We talked about the space wars and space allies and how and if they affect us..Now remember... Ashtar has sealed our planet, Earth, with a complete barrier - a planet in Ascension is sacred and "hands off."  NONE of this space war activity can affect Earth and her Ascension! -- How the Wave is affecting us and our families. How we can connect and open the hearts of those who have blocked themselvaes. Families coming together. Final word on the "evacuation."  Sananda comes in during the last 30 minutes and we talk about the Pillars of Light, the Accelerator Chair, the power of Love, going within, the amazing power of Twin Flames... and how to connect. - I apologize for the sound - Michael had to use his cell phone which was VERY loud - so you may have to keep adjusting your sound. Nevetheless, we are privileged to get these direct communications.

    Saving Dyett: Are Public Schools Being Taken Over By Private Business?

    in Women

    Has public education become big business at the expense of our children? Dyett High School in Chicago is just one of many public schools in danger of closing and being reopened as a privately owned institution. Some say that's good - the more private institutions we have, the more control we have over our children's education. But private schools, unless heavily financed by large corporations, tend to fail because schools rely on families to meet budget requirements through tuition. When tuition costs rise, families leave the school and this creates a greater financial burdon on the remaining families. The downward spiral effect leads to good private schools closing. In areas where coporations have taken over the schools and made them private, many local children are excluded from attending. Jitu Brown, National Director for the Journey For Justice Alliance, is working with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to insure that Dyett remains a viable public school, and is not closed and reopened as a private, corporately owned school that excludes neighborhood students.
