    The inaugural 2018 Javits-Wagner-O’Day Legal Symposium invites dialogue on the complexities and challenges of the U.S. government’s largest employment resource for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities.

    WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) September 27, 2018

    Melwood, in partnership with the George Washington University Law School, is bringing together top legal minds and government procurement experts in the field of disability employment on October 2-4 in Washington, DC. This is the first legal symposium of its kind to examine the complexities of the U.S. government’s AbilityOne Program and to share best practices among stakeholders.

    The symposium has attracted lawyers, contract administrators, executives, advocates, policymakers, and government clients with a stake in disability employment and federal procurement. The keynote speaker will be Neil Romano, Chairman of the National Council on Disability (NCD). Other prominent speakers include Kate McSweeny, VP of Government Affairs and General Counsel of ACCSES; Anne Rung, Director, Government Sector, Amazon Business; Steven L. Schooner, Nash & Cibinic Professor and Co-Director, George Washington University Law School Government Procurement Law Program; and Christopher R. Yukins, Co-Director, George Washington University Law School Government Procurement Law Program.

    “With the current historically low unemployment rate, people of differing abilities are essential to meeting the workforce needs of the government through AbilityOne contracts,” said Larysa Kautz, Melwood’s General Counsel & Chief of Staff. “With October being National Disability Employment Awareness Month, this is an opportune time to come together and talk about how to strengthen this critical program.”

    With this groundbreaking symposium, Melwood and GW Law are convening two sides of the AbilityOne Program: employment for the blind, for whom the Wagner-O’Day Act was originally created in 1938, and employment for the significantly disabled, which was added more than 30 years later. In addition, the event is bringing together federal contracting experts from the nonprofit, for-profit, small business, and government sectors.

    “We are thrilled to partner with Melwood and this impressive slate of expert legal practitioners as part of our dedication to continuous education within the acquisition community,” said Karen Thornton, Director of the George Washington University Law School Government Procurement Law Program. “I am sure the thought-provoking sessions will inspire our students to engage in research projects and scholarship related to individuals with disabilities.”

    The first full day of the Legal Symposium will take place at the George Washington University Law School.

    Patrick Kilpatrick's anticipated two-part memoir, DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot (published by Boulevard Books), offers a searing and scandalous literate look behind the actor's unconventional upbringing, political misadventures in journalism, a successful career as the entertainment industry's go-to antagonist, and juicy unprecedented celebrity tales - all the while intricately weaving in brazen patriotism and unparalleled humor.

    LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) September 28, 2018

    With Volume 1 set for release on October 1, 2018, and Volume 2 later this year, Kilpatrick is hosting launch events in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, October 3, starting with a private press conference luncheon at the National Press Club (open to the media and invitees only), followed by an evening celebration and book signing at the Kennedy Center (open to both the media and public). Joining Kilpatrick for the festivities will be special guests: Sean Stone (actor/director/producer, Oliver Stone's son), Scott Evans (host of NBC's Access), and Bai Ling (actress).

    "Although elegantly revealed, Dying For Living rips through social norms without regard to sensibility or political correctness," explains Kilpatrick. "Plot lines - murderous bi-polar assaults by an adulterous mother, privileged education amidst pastoral splendor, and American Revolution patriotism. Also included, bi-racial affairs and incendiary politics… not to mention, a near fatal car accident, motorcycle crashes, and a global vision for 21st Century America".

    Having dominated the silver screen for three decades with appearances in more than 170 hit films and television programs as a lead actor, producer, screenwriter, director, 'Movie Black Belt' and entertainment teacher, Kilpatrick's latest role of acclaimed author is an exhilarating progression for the action-industry titan. With a covertly assembled treasure trove of insider intel gleaned through this accomplished Hollywood resume, the genteel 6'2" star deploys wicked insights to provocative use throughout these penetrating memoirs.

    "Almost universally, all great movies and books possess romance, eroticism, war in its many forms, redemption, laughter, pathos, death, tragedy and action," Kilpatrick continues. "For those of you lusting, salivating, wishing and hoping for unvarnished, inglorious, and heroic behind-the-scenes elements of Hollywood, I boldly refer you to Dying For Living".

    A cinema hero with a heart, Kilpatrick will be donating a percentage of his book sales to the Disabled American Veterans, a 100-year-old organization devoted to servicing disabled warriors.

    The Kindle Edition of Volume 1 of DYING FOR LIVING – Sins & Confessions of a Hollywood Villain & Libertine Patriot, is available to purchase now on Amazon. Reported by PRWeb 1 day ago.

    On September 28, Apple started selling its new iPhones in Russia. The official start of the sales ended the story about the line outside an Apple's retailer store on Tverskaya Street in Moscow. The customer, who entered the store first on September 28, could not buy a new iPhone. The man, who seemed to be drunk, said that he had lost the money as he was standing in the line for three days. The man, who introduced himself as Valery, also said that he had purchased a place in the line for himself for 50,000 rubles ($770). "I bought a place in the queue for 50,000 rubles five hours before the store opened, but while I was standing there, I lost 170,000 rubles ($2,600) that I had in my pocket," the customer said. It appears, though, that the man was simply standing in the line for a few days in an attempt to sell his place there to someone else, but failed. When the store on Tverskaya Street opened, the first eight customers simply left the queue. It just so happened that the first customer of a new device was the ninth person in the line. The people were standing in the line in a hope that someone would pay them good money for the right to become the first owner of a new iPhone in Russia.In Moscow, people started joining the queue a week before the official start of sales of the new phones in Russia. Soon afterwards, one could finds curious classified ads on the net, where people were offering their places in the line on Tverskaya Street for a lot of money. The first person in the line posted an ad saying that he was ready to sell his place for 500,000 rubles ($7,700). One of those in the line told reporters that the people in the queue were aggressive and angry. One of the fans of the US-based corporation brought a war veteran to the store claiming that veterans had the right to queue-jump to be the first. It is worthy of note that the weather in Moscow has been not very pleasant recently. Daytime temperatures barely climb above 10 degrees Centigrade, and the people outside the store had to endure cold, strong wind and drizzling rain non-stop. Reported by PRAVDA 21 hours ago.

    Award Program Recognizes Excellence in Clinical Quality and Patient Care

    SALT LAKE CITY (PRWEB) September 28, 2018

    HealthInsight is recognizing thirty-nine nursing homes across three states for demonstrating excellence in providing high-quality care for their residents. The HealthInsight Quality Award Program recognizes high-performing health care provider organizations in the states for which HealthInsight serves as the Medicare program’s Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) contractor.

    To meet criteria for the Nursing Home Quality Award, a facility must rank at or above 75 percent of all facilities in the state, based on 15 long-stay quality measures reported on Medicare’s Nursing Home Compare website. The facility also must have at least a 3-star rating on Nursing Home Compare. A nursing home that has received a deficiency citation rated at scope and severity G or more severe is not eligible.

    “We are honored to recognize these outstanding nursing homes and the work they are doing to improve health care quality and patient care for residents in our region,” said Marc Bennett, President and CEO of HealthInsight. “Their commitment to quality of care reflects their dedication to serve many of our region’s most vulnerable individuals.”

    The HealthInsight Quality Award Program was launched in September 2004 to promote transparency in health care. As defined by the Institute of Medicine, a transparent health care system is “accountable to the public, works openly, makes results known, and builds trust through disclosure.” By using publicly available quality data to identify high-performing providers and publicizing the results, HealthInsight aims to help providers improve health care and help patients become more active and informed participants in their own care.
