Altruism may be the first necessity for a live kidney donation, but it is hardly the final one. Potential donors must endure all sorts of medical examinations, part of an arduous process designed to ensure both the donor and the recipient achieve healthy outcomes. Still, Don Flanagan faced an additional hurdle when he decided to donate a kidney to his brother two years ago. He lived in Cincinnati. His brother was a Jefferson Health patient in Philadelphia nearly 600 miles away.Traditionally, that distance would have required Flanagan to visit Philly at least twice – once to complete a series of prerequisites and again for the surgical procedure. But thanks to advances in telemedicine, Flanagan was able to complete the pre-surgical protocol in Ohio. "We have made it way more convenient and, I feel, somewhat financially neutral for the donor to be able to embark on this locally," said Dr. Pooja Singh, medical director of Jefferson's Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation and Living … [Read more...] about Telemedicine offers new health care possibilities – but payment challenges abound
NEW YORK — Shaye Washington spent seven years in the Air Force, including one deployment to Afghanistan, before leaving the service in 2012. The 33-year-old former staff sergeant is now pursuing an MBA under the GI Bill at Colorado Technical University, but had to stop taking classes this semester because of an outstanding balance with the school. Washington said the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has not distributed $7,000 in benefits, including $3,000 she needs to cover tuition. The shortfall has left her worried about paying for everyday items, like groceries for her three kids. Washington's predicament is one many veterans are now facing, and veterans groups and members of Congress from both parties are demanding answers from the VA. There are currently 73,000 benefits claims that have yet to be processed, an increase of nearly 27 percent from this time last year, a VA official told lawmakers Thursday. Not all claims represent delays, and the number of outstanding claims … [Read more...] about Veterans struggle with delayed GI Bill payments as lawmakers slam VA for IT failure
Upwork, a platform that matches companies with contractors, started its first day as a public company Wednesday, opening nearly 50 percent above its offering price. Shares of Upwork, listed on the Nasdaq under the ticker UPWK, opened at $23, significantly higher than the $15 at which they were priced. The IPO raised $102 million for the company, which has been operating under its current name since 2015 after combining two older platforms, oDesk and Elance, operating in what's often called the "gig economy." "The Upwork IPO is a sign of interest and a vote of confidence in the world of contingent work," said Barry Asin, president of Staffing Industry Associates, an independent research company. Upwork, the largest of the gig platforms, matches businesses with individual contractors to complete short-term projects. It competes with sites like TaskRabbit, Fiverr and even Craigslist, but is seen as a more professional platform, where workers are vetted and their skills are … [Read more...] about Upwork IPO: Freelancing platform soars on first trading day

As Paul Joseph Watson reported at Infowars, the platforms used the same excuse as Apple, Facebook, and YouTube used – that Infowars, a news and information site featuring pro-Trump, anti-Leftist content, was somehow “in violation” of ‘guidelines.” Watson said that’s the excuse used by a senior manager at ad platform … [Read more...] about Vimeo, Criteo and Shopify join the BANNING bandwagon to de-platform Alex Jones in massive, coordinated purge of pro-America speech
