first_img Related Shows Inspired by Stephens’ own experiences as a teacher, Punk Rock explores contemporary adolescence at the breaking point as a group of seventeen-year-olds in Manchester, England flirt and posture their way through the day while preparing for exams.

Welch calls for legislation to allow young people to remain on their parents’ health insurance plan

first_imgCongressman Peter Welch on Tuesday called for legislation allowing young people to stay on their parents health insurance policies until the age of 27. At a press conference at the University of Vermont s Waterman Lounge in Burlington, Welch said that comprehensive health reform legislation should make coverage affordable and accessible for the nation s largest group of uninsured people. In 2007, 13.2 million young people 30 percent of that age group were uninsured. Allowing young people to stay on the family health insurance plan will provide peace of mind to parents and affordable health care to young people, Welch said. As they leave high school or college, many young people find themselves unable or unwilling to buy health insurance leaving them at risk of serious illness or injury. This common sense legislation will save families money, reduce the risk of medical debt and keep people healthy.At the Burlington event, Welch outlined his support for the Young Adult Health Coverage Act (H.R. 2831), which Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi recently indicated would be incorporated into the final House version of comprehensive health reform legislation.Welch was joined at the press conference by Donna Watts, whose 21-year-old son, Kerry, was injured in a serious accident this summer after he was forced off his family s health plan and took a job that did not provide insurance. Kerry now faces thousands of dollars in medical bills. One of the most anxiety-inducing experiences for any parent is when you reach that point in your child s life when he or she is no longer eligible for your health insurance coverage, Donna Watts said.While Vermont s Catamount, Dr. Dynasaur and Vermont Health Access Program initiatives have made it one of nearly 30 states to offer some form of extended access to young people, Welch said that too many young Vermonters remain uninsured.According to a 2008 BISCHA survey, 21,807 Vermonters between the ages of 18 and 34 were uninsured. Nearly 22 percent of Vermonters between 18 and 24 were uninsured, compared with an overall rate of 7.4 percent making young Vermonters three times as likely as older Vermonters to be uninsured.Welch was also joined at the event by Vermont Campaign for Health Security executive director Peter Sterling and Cassandra Gekas, a 27-year-old Burlington resident who was unable to afford health insurance for two years.Source: Welch’s office. 10.20.2009.last_img read more

Social media influencers key actors in democracy: Palace

first_imgThe State Palace has defended the use of social media influencers to promote public policies, claiming the opinion leaders spearheaded the country’s digital transformation and democracy.Presidential spokesperson Fadjroel Rachman said influencers played a vital role as “key opinion leaders” to help communicate public policy in a connected society dominated by a digitally active middle class.“The active role of these digital actors is an inevitability in the country’s digital transformation. They will continue to grow their important roles in developing an information network to affect social, economic and productive political activities,” Fadjroel wrote in a statement on Monday. He added that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo had urged the country to push through a digital change as a prerequisite for a digital economic and democratic transformation. “Therefore, many policies need to be based on digital society and system.”Read also: ‘Unhealthy in a democracy’: Concerns mount over govt using ‘influencers’ to promote policiesThe government has been criticized for using social media influencers to promote its policies. Civil society groups have expressed concern that such a practice might be used to cover up problems in policies and muddle the public discourse.A study issued by Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) found that President Jokowi’s administration had spent Rp 90.4 billion (US$6 million) since its first term in office on goods and services procurement containing the word “influencers” in the documents.NGOs fear social media influencers might speak beyond their capacity or without proper disclosure that their content is sponsored or under a paid partnership with the government.Several social media influencers came under fire in August for posting content supporting the controversial omnibus bill on job creation using the hashtag #IndonesiaButuhKerja (Indonesia Needs Jobs).While denying that the campaign had been ordered by the government, an expert with the Executive Office of the Presidential, Donny Gahral Adian, argued that using influencers to promote policies was fair enough, because they could reach a broad audience through social media.Topics :last_img read more
