Proposed changes promote nutritional security and maternal and child health, increase flexibility for participants

Washington, November 17, 2022 – The USDA Food and Nutrition Service announces proposed changes to the foods prescribed to participants in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children, known as WIC. These science-based reviews incorporate recommendations from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020-2025.

“USDA is committed to advancing maternal and child health through WIC, helping mothers, babies and young children thrive,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “These proposed changes will strengthen WIC – already an incredibly powerful program – by ensuring it provides foods that reflect the latest nutritional science to support healthy eating and a bright future.”

WIC food packs are specially designed to complement the foods and beverages participants are already consuming and fill in key nutritional gaps to support healthy growth and development. The Food and Nutrition Service, or FNS, is propose changes to align food packaging with the latest nutritional science and support equitable access to nutritious food during critical life stages.

Taken collectively, the changes will increase the current level of assistance while providing state WIC agencies more flexibility to tailor packages to personal and cultural dietary preferences and special dietary needs and increase variety and choice for WIC participants. , making the program more attractive to current and potential participants.

“For the more than 6 million mothers, babies and young children who participate in WIC – and the millions more eligible to participate – these proposed revisions have the potential to have positive impacts throughout life. about health and wellness,” Stacy said. Dean, assistant assistant secretary for food, nutrition and consumer services.

The proposed revisions support fruit and vegetable consumption by increasing the amount provided and the varieties available for purchase. Congress had previously implemented a significant but temporary increase in the benefit for WIC attendees to purchase fruits and vegetables. FNS proposes to make this increase permanent, offering participants up to four times the amount they would otherwise receive. FNS also offers revisions that give participants a wider variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from and adjust the amount of juice to reflect nutrition guidance, which emphasizes whole fruits and vegetables.

Other proposed changes include, but are not limited to:

  • Expand whole grain options to include foods like quinoa, blue cornmeal, and teff to reflect dietary advice and accommodate individual or cultural preferences.
  • Provide more non-dairy alternatives such as soy-based yogurts and cheeses – and require lactose-free milk to be offered.
  • Include canned fish in more food packaging, creating more equitable access to this under-consumed food.
  • Require that canned beans be offered in addition to dried beans.
  • Added greater flexibility in the amount of formula provided to partially breastfed infants to support individual breastfeeding goals.

These – and any proposed changes – are based on the NASEM report, Review of WIC Food Packages: Improving Balance and Choice, and the latest edition of the Dietary Guidelines. The revisions are also informed by FDA-EPA guidance on fish consumption and feedback from WIC participants, state and tribal partners, and other government agencies.

FNS encourages all interested parties to provide feedback on the proposed changes by visiting www.regulations.gov. The comment period will be open from November 21, 2022 to February 21, 2023.

[WIC: Building Healthy Foundations Infographic]

WIC is one of the most powerful, evidence-based public health programs available, with a long history of improving children’s health and developmental outcomes. Participants receive specialist nutrition, key resources – including nutrition education, breastfeeding support and immunization screening – and referrals to health and social services.

WIC is also uniquely positioned to reduce racial disparities in maternal and child health outcomes. WIC turnout rates are highest among WIC-eligible Hispanic and non-Hispanic Blacks, and previous WIC food parcel updates have been shown to help increase access (PDF, 248 KB) towards healthier foods for Hispanic and Latino WIC participants.

Given the proven benefits of the program, FNS is committed to modernizing WIC to maximize its impact throughout the eligibility period of participants. The ministry recently announced several major investments to modernize WIC, support innovation and help reach more mothers and young children.

The USDA Food and Nutrition Service works to end hunger and improve food and nutrition security through a suite of more than 15 nutritional assistance programs, such as school breakfast and lunch programs, WIC, and SNAP. Together, these programs serve one in four Americans over the course of a year, promoting consistent and equitable access to healthy, safe, and affordable foods essential for optimal health and well-being. FNS also provides science-based nutritional recommendations through the co-development of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The SNSF report,Leveraging the White House Conference to Promote and Improve Nutrition Security: The Role of the USDA Food and Nutrition Servicehighlights the ways the agency will support the Biden-Harris administration National Strategy (PDF, 776 KB), published in conjunction with the historic White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health in September 2022.

We know that many organizations recognize that workplace wellness is not only the right thing to do, but also a smart business decision. We kick off Global Workplace Wellbeing Week by meeting Jordan Stott, Jersey-based Director and Head of Wellbeing at Deloitte LLP.

Jordan (pictured) started by saying Deloitte was delighted to be sponsoring Global Workplace Wellbeing Week 2022.

“Like many organizations, Deloitte has experienced profound change over the past few years, operating in the challenging environment of the pandemic and embracing new ways of working at pace. Caring for each other is an integral part of our values. Deloitte’s culture is based on the understanding that “we are all in this together”. We care for each other and prioritize respect, fairness, development and well-being. In our recent ‘Engage for Change’ staff survey conducted across our UK, Islands and Gibraltar offices, wellbeing was identified by our employees as one of the top five areas of focus.

“Our ongoing goal is to make our Jersey office an inclusive, open and supportive environment for our employees. We want our staff to feel confident to devote themselves fully to their work each day and to feel supported in achieving their goals and ambitions. We prioritize the physical and mental well-being of our staff as well as their responsibilities. Wellbeing is a journey for all employers and there is unlikely to be a single answer. We thought it would be helpful to share a few examples of initiatives we’ve tried that we think our people have enjoyed.

“It’s important for us to make sure that we offer a variety of activities for our employees to try to emphasize physical and mental well-being. For example, we regularly offer a yoga class in addition to our many sports activities in which we participate as a team, the possibility for staff to have a massage at work and, recently, we organized a candle-making activity. in the evening.

“Our Jersey office continues to grow significantly and we have a very diverse team encompassing a range of different cultures and backgrounds. It’s fantastic to celebrate this diversity with our people; recently we held events for the Nigeria Independence Day and Diwali During our Manager Strategy session, we appreciated having the opportunity to learn a phrase from a colleague in a new language and have now introduced a of the month” throughout the office to continue in this direction.

“We have often heard that charitable and community activities are important to our teams. We have a partnership with Every Child our Future in the Channel Islands, giving our people the opportunity to get involved in numeracy activities at local primary schools. We recently made a significant financial donation to ECOF, along with a donation of laptops to show our continued support for the work they do with schoolchildren on the island.

“We strive to ensure that our team and office social events are inclusive so that there is something to offer for everyone. Any opportunity for healthy competition seems to be especially appreciated. We recently organized an evening of video and board games at the office and organize a table tennis tournament to raise funds for our charity partner.

“The beginning of the year is an extremely busy time for our colleagues, who are working on several projects with our customers. We will be hosting an internal wellness week in January, focused on providing our employees with activities and strategies to take care of their physical and mental wellbeing over the coming months.

“As a large company, Deloitte offers a wide range of employee benefits and in recent years this has been particularly extended to include health and lifestyle benefits. For example, starting in January, the company will offer all employees private, company-funded medical insurance. We want to ensure that all of our employees use the benefits offered in the way that best suits them. An example of this is allowing staff to take public/bank holidays on a different day if that makes more sense to them.

“We believe having a clear focus on wellness is extremely important to our ability to attract and retain talented people. We look forward to continuing to invest in this area as we grow and develop our Jersey office and our island business as a whole. »

All Emory faculty, postdocs, and graduate student researchers are encouraged to create an ORCID https://freedomtoons.org/all-emory-faculty-postdocs-and-graduate-student-researchers-are-encouraged-to-create-an-orcid/ Mon, 31 Oct 2022 23:25:42 +0000 https://freedomtoons.org/all-emory-faculty-postdocs-and-graduate-student-researchers-are-encouraged-to-create-an-orcid/ Give your research the visibility it deserves by following two important steps: creating an ORCID ID if you don’t have one, and if you have one, connecting it to Emory through your university connection.

Give your research the visibility it deserves by following two important steps: creating an ORCID ID if you don’t have one, and if you have one, connecting it to Emory through your university connection.

So what is it ORCIDE? It stands for Open Researcher and Contributor Identifiers. According Jody Baileywho directs the office of scholarly communications at Emory Libraries, “ORCID credentials are a win-win solution for researchers and for the institution because they connect researchers to their academic work and associate them with Emory as the basis for research point conducted here. ”

Free for users, ORCID identifiers help Emory funders, publishers, learned societies, and other researchers quickly find and distinguish your work from documents created by researchers with similar names. More than 100 publishers now require authors to submit an ORCID ID with their journal articles, including SAGE, the Royal Society, PLOS, Springer Nature, BMJ and Wiley.

There is particular urgency behind this campaign for Emory researchers – which include faculty, postdocs, and graduate students – to establish ORCID identifiers: Beginning in January 2023, all U.S. federal funding agencies will require that researchers have a persistent numeric ID, and an ORCID ID is the only one that meets all the criteria established by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

Ravi V. Bellamkonda, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, has a ORCID identifier and champions their use across Emory, saying, “Our faculty produces incredible scholarship, providing abundant evidence of Emory’s world-class research culture. I encourage all faculty, postdocs, and graduate students to create and populate their own ORCID IDs to showcase both their personal academic achievements and the collective eminence of our Emory research community.

Bailey is part of an Emory committee that fully vetted digital IDs before issuing the ORCID recommendation. The group includes representatives from the Provost’s Office, Office of Information Technology, Office of the Senior Vice President for Research, Research Administration, and Libraries.

“As a not-for-profit organization run by and for researchers, ORCID is a positive force in the research ecosystem because its platform is interoperable with many other parts of the system. Researcher data in ORCID records is machine-readable, allowing for more accurate data collection and easier sharing with funders and accrediting bodies. ORCID will not sell our data and will serve as a trusted steward, preserving it for many decades to come,” says Bailey.

Lisa Maclin, associate vice-president and university librarian, sees the value of ORCID from her dual perspectives as a lawyer and a librarian. She points out that “in today’s interconnected digital world, it is essential that Emory researchers be uniquely identified with their work throughout their careers. I found this made it easy for me to add my biographical information, affiliations, publications, and grants. »

The ease of creating and connecting your ORCID iD

Bailey has a page on the library site with a video on the benefits of establishing an iD, ORCID FAQs, and simple steps to create an ORCID iD and connect it to Emory.

Among its advantages, an ORCID iD:

  • Distinguishes searchers with the same or similar names.
  • Avoid confusion for those who have changed their name or published under different versions of their name.
  • Remains with researchers throughout their career if they change institutions or make other major career transitions.
  • Can be widely shared with collaborators, funders, editors, and employers, saving time and effort.

Bailey also provides tips for using ORCID, including:

  • If you’ve posted under other names, make sure that’s reflected in your ORCID profile.
  • Use your ORCID ID when submitting manuscripts and grant proposals.
  • Link your ORCID ID to other services, including eRA Commons, Scopus Author ID, slice of fig and professional organizations.
  • Display your ORCID iD on posters, web pages, email signature lines, blogs and social media accounts – don’t miss an opportunity to refer others to your search body.

Valeda F. Dent, Vice-Rector of Libraries and Museums, urges scholars to act now, noting, “One of the benefits of ORCID is how it supports equitable and inclusive practices in scholarly communications. By creating a freely available formal structure to disambiguate researchers from each other, ORCID supports the importance of individual identity as defined by each researcher. It is also important to remember that, globally, scholars may not have equal access to resources typically associated with scholarly communication, which may interfere with their ability to promote and claim their own work. ORCID levels this field by allowing researchers to keep a permanent record of their own research.

Calendar pages fly

January will be here before we know it, advises Bailey. Don’t delay in taking this important step. Any researcher with questions is welcome contact her.

“This ID has become the global standard in the search ecosystem, and we are proud to be part of the effort to increase its awareness and use on the Emory campus,” Bailey said.

ID is amplifying awareness around Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October with the launch of its “No excuse for the abuse” campaign partnership with domestic violence organizations One Love Foundation and NO MORE. Jason SarlanisPresident of Crime & Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery, explains why the real criminal network has a responsibility to grow stronger.

What is the origin of the campaign?

It’s something I’m passionate about and close to the hearts of all of us here at ID because so many of the stories around crime and relationships start from a place of domestic abuse. Anything we can do to help educate our viewers about domestic violence, provide them with resources on how to safely get out of a dangerous scenario they might find themselves in, or even how to be a confidant for a loved one. dear in an unhealthy situation, is mission critical to us here at ID.

How did you choose the partners?

We have a long history with One Love Foundation, and with “No Excuse for Abuse” we’re taking that partnership to the next level. We are also excited to bring another education support organization, NO MORE, into the ID family with this initiative. Both of these organizations are inspiring a change in the stigma surrounding domestic violence, and we are thrilled to partner with them both to help improve their tools and resources to ensure viewers are equipped to identify the different forms of domestic violence. Our partnership with them not only helps us do it, but also helps us do it right.

What is the link between the ID mark and the message?

ID is the number one true crime network, and we take the commitment to our viewership to heart. With the sensitive and harrowing nature of true crime, we cannot simply be providers of television content – we have a responsibility to be a place where people who identify with potentially dangerous situations for themselves or their loved ones can fetch resources. ID has an active audience that wants to make a difference: whether it’s helping capture 42 fugitives, as we saw with In pursuit with John Walsh, or activation to find missing persons who appear on Faded away. We’re tapping into that desire to do good for our viewers, and we’re doubling that by launching our “No Excuse for Abuse” campaign to help empower those who might need it.

Bitcoin – a popular cryptocurrency created in the late 2000s by developer(s) Satoshi Nakamoto – can be complex in terms of operations. It can be said that Bitcoin is a digital currency that uses cryptography to record transactions. We can also say that underlying blockchain technology adds uniqueness to Bitcoin. It can also be said that Bitcoin is synonymous with the absence of any middlemen like banks, with full control of operations in the hands of the people. The current situation is such that even stakeholders in the cryptocurrency world lack consensus on Bitcoin.

Before You Assume Anything About Bitcoin, Including That It’s An Emerging Market speculative investment asset, it is important to understand how Bitcoin works. Is Bitcoin a business where employees work in an arrangement that resembles the operations of a bank? Are bitcoin operations controlled from any seat? How are recordings of the movement of BTC tokens from one party to another maintained? Here is a simple explanation.

How Bitcoin Works

First, Bitcoin is also a blockchain network in addition to being a cryptocurrency. Bitcoin’s mainnet is a distributed ledger, which means that record keeping is not centralized but distributed across a large number of participants. Nakamoto imagined Bitcoin as “electronic money” or virtual currency. Money only makes sense when records are properly kept and there is no double-spending. The holder should have the ability to use the money once, and the right to spend later should pass to the recipient.

Bitcoin works in such a way that all transactions are recorded in the ledger by peers spread across the globe. This process verifies the authenticity of transactions and avoids double-spending. Things like hashing and proof of work can be complicated, even for someone with a technical background. These simply contribute to the record keeping process, with rewards for archivists, also known as nodes. It’s simple: when two parties make a transaction, it triggers a record-updating exercise, which is undertaken by independent nodes who are rewarded for the work done.

Data provided by CoinMarketCap.com

Both cryptocurrency and blockchain

Many cryptocurrency enthusiasts mainly focus on Bitcoin as a cryptocurrency. However, there is a defined and distinctive blockchain mainnet. It is similar to Ethereum or Solana or Cardano blockchains. Notably, the Bitcoin blockchain can support a so-called secondary framework, also called Layer 2 in the blockchain world. Lightning Network is one such layer 2 protocol that sits on top of Bitcoin’s mainnet. When a token is mined on the mainnet, it becomes the cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC).

At the end of the line

Bitcoin can be simple to understand – given that it is a decentralized virtual currency – and also complex when you consider how the mainnet’s record keeping is handled. Intermediaries such as central banks and commercial banks play no part in it and authority is distributed among participants called nodes. Is Bitcoin a speculative investment asset? This is another debatable subject.

Risk Disclosure: Trading cryptocurrencies involves high risks, including the risk of losing some or all of the amount of your investment, and may not be suitable for all investors. Cryptocurrency prices are extremely volatile and can be affected by external factors such as financial, regulatory or political events. The laws that apply to crypto products (and how a particular crypto product is regulated) may change. Before deciding to trade financial instruments or cryptocurrencies, you should be fully informed of the risks and costs associated with trading in the financial markets, carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience and appetite for the risk, and seek professional advice if necessary.

Mumbai | New Delhi: Adani Airport Holdings has again overhauled its senior management, appointing Ericsson veteran Arun Bansal as its chief executive, several people familiar with the matter said.

Bansal, who spent 25 years with the Swedish telecommunications network company, was most recently its president for Europe and Latin America.

“The appointment will help strengthen the company’s digital transformation and growth agenda,” Adani Group Chief Human Resources Officer Vikram Tandon wrote in an internal memo, a copy of which ET has seen. “The goal is to improve the customer experience and provide new opportunities for growth and collaboration,” he said.

Bansal will be based in Ahmedabad and will report to longtime Adani Group veteran Malay Mahadevia, who is the airport company’s operations director.

The Adani group has been reorganizing the general management of its airport activity for more than a year. In April, the company appointed Harshad Jain, former CEO of HT Media-owned Next Media Works, as CEO of Adani Airports’ non-aviation segment, replacing Ben Zandi.

Zandi, former CEO of Fraport, was appointed CEO of Adani Airports in January 2020. Prior to Zandi, there had been several high profile exits. Zandi has been appointed CEO of Adani Airports Aviation Business. In July 2021, the company said that RK Jain, a veteran of GVK Group, the former owner of Mumbai Airport, would replace Zandi as CEO of the aviation segment. Zandi was named CEO of non-aero before being replaced by Harshad Jain in April. Zandi has now resigned. RK Jain continues to lead the aerospace business.

Aero and non-aeronautical are two sources of revenue for an airport operator. The first includes revenues from airlines and air passengers. The other segment includes airport retail and real estate in and around the airport.

Adani Airports owns 74% of Mumbai International Airport Ltd and operates six other airports. Each of these airports is headed by an airport manager and these positions have also changed. Earlier this year, Hitarth Mankodi, formerly of Bahrain Airport Company, replaced BG Gandhi as director of Ahmedabad Airport. Gandhi, previously chief operating officer of Adani Port in Krishnapatnam, ran Ahmedabad Airport for just over a year.

Vishnu Jha, earlier at Mumbai Airport in the days of GVK, served as Jaipur Airport Manager for one year and three months, according to his LinkedIn profile. Nirav Shah, previously with another Adani Group company, MPSEZ, joined Mangaluru Airport in June 2021, according to LinkedIn. Prabhat Mahapatra, Thiruvananthapuram Airport Manager, left Mumbai Airport in August 2021. According to his LinkedIn profile, he is Co-President, Operations and Head of Operations Center of Excellence at AAHL. Balvir Singh joined Lucknow Airport in February this year. Utpal Baruah, former chief operating officer of Kannur International Airport, has been at the helm of Guwahati Airport since 2019.

Adani airports account for 25% of airport traffic and 40% of air cargo in India.

Prakash Tulsiani, former CEO of Allcargo, runs Mumbai Airport. The Rs 18,000 crore Navi Mumbai Airport, for which the company won the tender, is managed by BVJK Sharma, who previously worked for JSW Infra.

Bansal comes at a time when demand for air travel is increasing and the company is gradually ignoring the woes of the pandemic.

President Gautam Adani wants to quickly digitize his airport business and make it a connector for his business empire which covers electricity, ports, green energy, agricultural products, telecommunications and logistics.

In a speech, Adani had referred to “airports as the nucleus around which we can catalyze real estate and entertainment facilities, e-commerce and logistics capabilities, time-sensitive industrial ecosystems, aviation-related activities and put in place other innovative business concepts – many of which will be made possible by integrating digitalization into all aspects of business and our daily lives. »
