first_imgThe Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics encourages teaching and research about ethical issues in the professions and public life. Its graduate fellowships support outstanding Harvard graduate and professional students who are writing dissertations or are engaged in major research on topics in practical ethics, especially ethical issues in areas such as architecture, business, education, government, law, medicine, public health, public policy, and religion. Students should either be enrolled in a Harvard doctoral program; enrolled in or a recent graduate of a Harvard professional degree program that does not require a doctoral dissertation for an academic career (such as law or medicine); or a current Harvard affiliate who is engaged in postgraduate training or in appropriate graduate training at another school and has no academic or professional commitments in 2016-17.The center seeks applicants who have excelled in their fields of specialization, have demonstrated an interest in questions of value that cut across disciplinary boundaries, and who are likely to make significant contributions to teaching and scholarship in practical and professional ethics. Some successful applicants will have a strong background in moral philosophy or political thought; others will be grounded in fields of public policy or professional practice.Graduate fellows receive a stipend of up to $27,000 for one academic year, which varies depending on individual circumstances. Graduate fellowships are announced in mid-February for the upcoming academic year. The deadline to apply is November 16, 2015.For more information, please see our website.

Upselling occurs when the consumer is presented with an opportunity to take advantage of more ‘value-added’ services. Cross-selling happens when the consumer is presented with the opportunity to purchase something else to go with what he or she wants. Let’s look at this from the financial institution’s perspective.UpsellingFor upselling, the intrinsic notion of increased value is present. A borrower is obtaining an auto loan, and the loan officer offers Guaranteed Asset Protection(GAP). This simple notion takes only a few seconds, but it introduces the borrower to a service they may not know they need or want. How do you do that in a subtle way? It’s as simple as asking, “Do you have something in place to protect you in the event of an accident and the insurance payout is less than what you owe on the loan?” Did you get that? By asking this question, you are helping the borrower realize he or she could be caught short in this situation, and you are helping them purchase peace of mind in the form of GAP protection.We experience these tactics so often, I bet we don’t even recognize them when they occur. Several years ago, my husband and I were at a fast food restaurant. Instead of asking the usual, “Would you like to super-size your meal?”—a question we were already prepared to answer—our cashier asked, “How hungry are you today?” She proceeded to mention we could ‘super-size’ the meal for a few dollars more, which we did! She planted the concept that we were hungrier than we thought, and we needed that super-sized meal. In an instant, she was no longer the fast-food cashier; she was a consultant. A consultant, you ask? Absolutely! According to consulting.com, she became a consultant the moment she engaged in the business of giving expert advice in a specific field. She knew her business (fast food), and she knew how to guide the consumer by asking how hungry we were that day. With her gentle guidance, we realized we were hungrier than we thought, and she increased the sale.last_img read more


first_imgIn the eighth inning, Kole Calhoun led off with his 29th homer of the season, pulling the Angels within 4-3. Calhoun had been in a 2-for-29 slump.Keynan Middleton and Luís García each pitched scoreless innings. For Middleton, it was his fifth straight scoreless outing since returning from Tommy John surgery earlier this month. García has now allowed just two earned runs in his last 15 innings, improving from what had been a poor first half.Ty Buttrey, who has also endured a miserable second half, then worked a scoreless eighth.Hansel Robles pitched a perfect ninth, extending his streak to 25 consecutive batters retired. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone “It’s given him trouble recently,” Manager Brad Ausmus said of Peters’ early innings. “It looked like he was kind of off from the get-go.”In between the two homers, Peters also balked twice.“The frustrating fact is I’m not doing what I’m asked to do and that’s to go deep into ballgames, turn the lineup over, and get to the next inning and get as deep into the game as I can and save the bullpen and keep the team in the game,” Peters said. “In the first two innings my last few outings, it hasn’t been easy to battle back the remainder of the game. This is all on me. There is nobody else to blame but myself. Just get to the next day, get to the next week and get better.”After the Lindor homer, Peters settled down to get the next six outs before Ausmus turned a 4-1 deficit over to the bullpen.Related Articles PreviousANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA – SEPTEMBER 11: A color guard stands for a moment of silence remembering 9/11 prior to a game between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Cleveland Indians at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on September 11, 2019 in Anaheim, California.

first_imgDES MOINES — AARP Iowa held the first of what will be several education sessions Wednesday on a new law for family caregivers that goes into effect Monday.The group’s advocacy director Anthony Carroll says the CARE Act will make an impact across the state. “Family caregivers represent the majority of long-term services and support. With over 317-thousand family caregivers who provide care to loved ones in unpaid fashion every day,” Carroll says.The law requires hospitals to give patients the opportunity to name a caregiver at the start of the process. “If you’re going into a hospital with a loved one as a family caregiver — you perhaps don’t even identify yourself yet as a family caregiver,” Carroll says. “So, having the hospital ask a patient and loved one ‘do you have a family caregiver that you are going home to, would you like to record them and put them into your medical record’?”There is also followup to the initial notation of a caregiver. “And if you do chose to designate a caregiver — that caregiver is notified before the patient is sent home. And then, last but not least, there’s an opportunity have a discussion about the caregiver’s abilities, limitations, and an opportunity to receive instructions on any medical care needed before that patient is sent home — rather than you get home and realize, what do I need to do, how do I need to do this,” according to Carroll.He says the process is designed to take the surprises out of the situation for the caregiver. “Thinking from the git-go what you might need to do. Being prepared to ask questions, and then hopefully alleviating the stress that comes with that situation, being thrust in that role perhaps unanticipated after the fact,” Carroll says. “So, that’s really the idea, elevating family caregivers, helping them think about it upon admission.”Carroll says they also understand the issues facing healthcare providers and this should help them better server patients.“The provider themselves actually has a better understanding of what exactly care reality or support reality is this patient returning home to,” he says.Carroll says AARP has information available to help you understand the new law. “There’s free downloadable cards available — you don’t have to be an AARP member — there’s no cost, at www.AARP/IA. Again, that’s an opportunity for people to understand what the new law is. You can detach a wallet card and put it in your pocket,” Carroll says. He says they have been working with the area agencies on aging and other groups to get the information out about the new law.last_img read more


first_imgIt’s lights, camera, action for Donegal Pens brothers Rónán and Conor Mc Garvey later today (Tuesday) when they appear on the RTE2 ‘Two Tube’ programme.The Mc Garvey brothers from Loughanure will appear on the popular youth-aimed programme between 5.30 and 6pm to chat about their Dragons Den experience earlier this year. The boys emerged from the Junior Dragons Den series with the most money out of the twenty participants.Successful Donegal businesswoman Ramona Nicholas of the Cara Pharmacy group awarded them a €2,000 bursary, while businessman Peter Casey placed a €2,000 order with them on the show. Ramona will also appear on the show with them.The boys will speak on the live show about how much their participation in Dragons Den helped their business and how they’d encourage any budding young entrepreneurs to apply for the 2014 series.Despite no assistance from state agencies, Donegal Pens has gone from strength to strength to become a successful business run by two teenage schoolboys. Their enquiry about funding from the Donegal Enterprise Board was shot down because they were told they are “too young”. They are currently “flat out” dealing with Christmas orders and shipping pens worldwide. Orders for the Christmas season are recommended to be with them by December 15th through their website www.donegalpens.com“It’s been very busy in recent weeks and we’re doing our best to fulfil all the Christmas orders. The latest recommended shipping date for Ireland is December 20th, UK and Europe is 19th, and the USA is the 11th, but we’ll continue to ship up until Monday, 23rd December,” said Conor. IT’S LIGHTS, CAMERA AND ACTION FOR THE DONEGAL PEN BOYS TODAY was last modified: December 10th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL PENSRTE 2Two Tubelast_img read more
