Governor Wolf Hosts Panel Discussion on Protecting Seniors from Financial Fraud

Posted on by

first_img June 13, 2017 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release,  Seniors Monaca, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today joined Department of Banking and Securities Secretary Robin L. Wiessmann and Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne to discuss measures the Wolf Administration has taken to help protect senior citizens from financial scams and fraud. Thursday, June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.“Financial crime can be visited upon older Pennsylvanians by someone they know — caregivers, friends, professionals, or service providers who abuse the trust that has been placed in them – or, in some cases, they can be targeted by strangers with elaborate scams,” Governor Wolf said. “That’s why my administration decided to pull together and collaborate across all our agencies to work to protect older Pennsylvanians from this kind of abuse.”“Elder financial abuse is one of the most significant financial crimes of the 21st century, and it is estimated to cost older Americans $36 billion each year,” said Secretary Wiessmann. “In order to help protect our seniors from financial fraud and abuse, we are developing and providing education programs for front-line professionals who have close contact with older Pennsylvanians. Through these programs, accountants, doctors, lawyers, and investment professionals are learning to identify signs of elder financial abuse, as well as how to report it and prevent this crime.”During a panel discussion at the Center at the Mall in Monaca, Governor Wolf pointed specifically to “PA $AFE,” an information exchange and clearinghouse created as part of the governor’s Consumer Financial Protection Initiative, which involves over 20 Pennsylvania state government agencies engaged in financial education and consumer protection activities.“As an example of how PA $AFE operates, leaders from 14 agencies with consumer hotlines are trained to work to ensure their staff members know the appropriate places to refer calls that are not typically handled by their agencies,” Governor Wolf explained. “They are also making certain that the financial information they share with consumers is up-to-date and consistent across agencies.”In November 2015, Governor Wolf announced the Consumer Financial Protection Initiative “in order to educate the public about financial protection and best practices in a concise, efficient way.” Among the four goals he laid out for this initiative:Establish a state government interagency financial education exchange for consumers.Help professionals who work with senior citizens identify signs of elder financial abuse and prevent this crime.“There are many types of financial fraud scams that target seniors,” said Secretary Osborne. “The Wolf Administration recognizes that financial fraud education is critical. Protection means involvement, and in order to prevent older Pennsylvanians from becoming victims of financial fraud, we must educate those around us on what these scams are, how they work, and where to call for help.”Senior citizens, the caregivers, or family members with questions about financial transactions can call the Department of Banking and Securities at 1-800-PA-BANKS. The department also maintains on online library of resources to help consumers learn to protect themselves at: www.dobs.pa.gov.center_img Governor Wolf Hosts Panel Discussion on Protecting Seniors from Financial Fraudlast_img read more

first_imgNewsRegional OECS member states to implement common tourism policy by October 1 by: – September 2, 2011 19 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share Tweetcenter_img Share OECS logo. Photo credit: thewestindiesnews.comCASTRIES, St Lucia – October 1, 2011, has been identified as the date for establishing a common tourism policy for OECS member states. That is among the major successful outcomes of the second meeting of private and public sector tourism stakeholders, which looked at the draft tourism policy for the OECS.Programme officer at the OECS Secretariat, Dr Lorraine Nicholas, said OECS member states are “pretty close” towards unveiling their first common tourism policy.“The consultants are refining the policy document to reflect decisions taken at the workshop. We expect to disseminate the revised policy to officials in our member states. the member states have requested a deadline of September 14 for submission of their final comments; and we expect to have a final common tourism policy document by October 1,” Nicholas said.The OECS Secretariat added that the focus on tourism development within the OECS Economic Union and how it further enhances the life of the sector’s thousands of employees as well as the region’s economies was high on the agenda of OECS member states at the recent meeting of tourism stakeholders.“I think I can say with some level of confidence that the OECS Member States have produced a very comprehensive relevant and action oriented Tourism Policy,” Nicholas said.The OECS Secretariat said the meeting in Antigua and Barbuda from August 16 to 17 was a success, as tourism professionals from the private and public sector in the OECS and other stakeholders agreed on the key areas to be addressed in the OECS tourism policy.Antigua’s Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture, John Maginley, advised the delegates on the way forward for the region’s vital economic sector and called for greater involvement of the private sector in tourism development activities. He said it is the private and not the public sector that generates most of the revenue from tourism.Maginley also urged participants to appreciate of the value of yachting to the region’s tourism product. The meeting identified the operationalisation of the OECS’ single yachting space as a top priority under the product development policy area.Other key areas include harmonisation of customs and immigration procedures, including the universal implementation of eSeaClear throughout OECS; improvement in air access to the region; standardization of human resource development initiatives across the region; transportation; and enhancement of tourism awareness throughout the region to provide empirical evidence of the economic impact of tourism. Improved research and statistics as well as attracting greater investment to the region were also flagged as major policy measures.The recent meeting follows an initial consultation held in March 2011, when tourism professionals from the region’s private and public sectors identified and prioritised key areas on which the policy should focus.Nicholas believes the extensive discussions will soon result in the formulation of a comprehensive, relevant and action-oriented tourism policy for the OECS.Looking ahead, Nicholas said, having formulated the plan, funding has been identified under the 10th EDF programme to implement the OECS common tourism policy.Caribbean News Now Sharelast_img read more

Suarez named in Liverpool squad

Posted on by

first_imgLiverpool’s wantaway striker Luis Suarez has been included in the 27-man squad for their pre-season tour of Indonesia, Australia and Thailand. Press Association Suarez scored 30 goals for the Merseyside outfit last term but his campaign ended controversially after he was handed a 10-game ban – six of which he is still to serve – for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic during a match at Anfield. Among the 24 players due to fly out are fit-again club captain Steven Gerrard, absent from the last two fixtures of 2012-13 due to a shoulder problem. The club’s quartet of new signings – goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, defender Kolo Toure and forwards Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas – are also included, while striker Daniel Sturridge, who has been nursing an ankle injury, is not involved. The squad listed on the website initially featured 28 names, but that of Daniel Pacheco has since been removed, with the club subsequently confirming the Spanish forward would not be travelling. Pacheco is not injured and no further information has been given as to the reason for his withdrawal. The matches Liverpool have scheduled for the tour see them take on an Indonesia XI in Jakarta on July 20, face Melbourne Victory in Australia on July 24 and then play Thailand in Bangkok on July 28. center_img Suarez’s desire to leave the Reds this summer has seemed clear from various interviews he has given over the last few weeks, but the club have stressed they do not intend to sell the 26-year-old Uruguay international and rejected an offer for him from Arsenal. He is not part of the 24-man group set to depart John Lennon Airport on Tuesday afternoon for the 12-day trip, although a statement on Liverpool’s website said that Suarez, Uruguay defender Sebastian Coates and Spain goalkeeper Jose Reina, who have been given extended time off due to their involvement in the Confederations Cup, would all be joining the party “later on in the tour”. last_img read more

USC alumnus receives philanthropy award

Posted on by

first_imgRick Caruso, a USC alumnus and businessman, has already been named “Developer of the Year” by the Los Angeles Business Journal and “Master Entrepreneur of the Year” by Ernst & Young LLP. His most recent award, though, comes from Pope Francis. Caruso has been awarded the Papal honor known as Knight Commander in the Order of the Knights of St. Gregory the Great.Caruso received the award on Jan. 14 at Los Angeles Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels for his extraordinary life of service to the Catholic Church and to his community.In recent years, Caruso’s service has primarily consisted of helping children who are underserved and underprivileged. His philanthropic efforts are focused on those children who lack the means to a proper education and health care.“I feel strongly that kids need to have an opportunity to live a full, healthy and happy life,” Caruso said.Founded in 1991, the Caruso Family Foundation has contributed to funding Operation Progress, a program that pairs students with Los Angeles Police Department mentors in South Los Angeles. This organization supports children who are living in housing tracts in that area.The program’s collaboration with the police force ensures that children have a safe means of arriving to school in the mornings. Moreover, by providing full scholarships, Operation Progress also encourages students to advance their education.Additionally, the Caruso Family Foundation supports Para Los Niños, an organization founded on Skid Row in 1980. Para Los Niños is a nonprofit social services organization that is committed to aiding Los Angeles’s disadvantaged families. The organization gives children from the ages of six months to 14 years an opportunity to obtain an education.Caruso has also endowed $25 million dollars to USC’s otolaryngology department. This donation has provided researchers the resources to develop new methods to treat hearing loss among children who suffer diseases related to the ear, nose and throat. This department is now known as the Caruso Department of Otolaryngology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.USC’s Catholic community has also benefitted from Caruso’s $7.5 million donation. The USC Caruso Catholic Center provides spiritual comfort for USC students.“A lot of the service we do is done because of our faith, my belief system and what is important to us,” Caruso said.Caruso intends to carry on his service work in the future.“The future will be focused on those who do not have the same benefits the rest of us do,” Caruso said.Caruso revealed that his faith and his belief in people plays a significant role in his desire to help the community. He plans to continue focusing his service work on health care through faith-based organizations in the future.“All of the things we have in play, we are staying very engaged and very involved,” Caruso said.According to Caruso, helping the community is a rewarding experience.“We are all part of the same community here, and I really do believe that you are only as strong as the weakest point,” Caruso said. “We just have an obligation as human beings to lean in and help others.”Caruso explained that his values are heavily based on helping others. He explains that he feels like he personally gains more from giving, compared to what he receives.“You could always help other people who have less, and there are always people who have less or have a need,” Caruso said. “It may just be encouragement or a helping hand or friendship, but we should all be providing that because it’s part of being a member of the community.”When asked about the qualities one should possess when striving for success, Caruso cited his success as the product of hard work and courage.“Courage is one of my favorite words,” Caruso said. “Courage means you have fear, but you conquer your fear.”Caruso also stressed the importance of maintaining a moral code. He believes that even in the competitive business world, dealings should be conducted with integrity, fairness and generosity. According to Caruso, such qualities will pay off in the long run.Caruso encourages USC students to enjoy their time in college and to seize opportunities that come forth. He explained that students should graduate feeling like they have taken full advantage of the resources USC has to offer. He said students should hold onto their zest to learn in order to expand their range of interests and experiences.“You never get those four years back,” Caruso said. “They will be four great years that will change your life and shape you in so many different ways.”last_img read more

Wimbledon 2019: Novak Djokovic brushes David Goffin aside to reach semifinals

Posted on by

first_imgGoffin had the better of much of an entertaining opening set before Djokovic sapped the life out of the fast-fading Belgian, who wilted in his first quarterfinal at SW19 on Wednesday.Djokovic, who made only 17 unforced errors and won 76 percent of points behind his first serve, has only dropped one set en route to the last four as he eyes a 16th major title.The world No. 1, beaten by Goffin for the first time when they last met in Monaco two years ago, will now face Roberto Bautista Agut.Will anyone be able to stop the defending champion?@DjokerNole’s 70th win at #Wimbledon sees the Serbian reach his ninth semi-final at The Championships after beating David Goffin pic.twitter.com/qSIPNWUz6z— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 10, 2019Djokovic fended off a couple of break points with stoic defense and a trusty serve as his 23rd-ranked opponent applied early pressure, bossing baseline rallies.Goffin was lightning quick over the famous grass as the two served up some thrilling rallies and the underdog got a thumbs up from Djokovic following a majestic cross-court winner before breaking to lead 4-3.The Serbian appeared to be troubled by his eyes as he sat in his chair but was seeing clearly when he broke straight back and won the set after Goffin fizzed a backhand wide. The second set was a totally different story, Goffin fading fast after showing such promise, with an aggressive Djokovic sweeping him aside.A sprightly Djokovic broke for a 2-0 lead with a volley at the net and continued to jump all over the Belgian’s tame serve, returning superbly and sealing a bagel with a textbook overhead. WIMBLEDON, England — Defending champion Novak Djokovic took the wind out of David Goffin’s sails to cruise into a ninth Wimbledon semifinal.It was not plain sailing for the top seed in the first set, but he came from a break down and went on to brush Goffin aside 6-4, 6-0, 6-2 on Centre Court. Goffin halted a run of 10 consecutive games won by Djokovic to level at 1-1 in the third but gifted the four-time champion a break with a double fault.Djokovic saved two break points before taking a 4-1 advantage and Goffin was put out of his misery when he flashed a backhand into the tramlines.last_img read more
