Duterte to PhilHealth: ‘Premiums for OFWs should be voluntary’

first_img“Sa ngayon po, habang meron tayong krisis, ang naging desisyon ng Presidente, wag na muna tayong magpataw ng karagdagang pahirap sa ating mga OFWs, lalong lalo na sa panahon na napakadami sa kanila ang nare-repatriate at nawalan na rin ng trabaho,” Roque added.With Duterte’s order, the Department of Health has suspended the item 10.2.c of the Implementing Rules and Regulation of the Universal Healthcare law that mandates the higher premium payment for OFWs.“Ang nililinaw ko lang ay, unang una, ang pagtaas po ay hindi three percent. It’s only .5 percent,” the Palace spokesman said. “At pangalawa, nakasaad po sa batas na ating sinulong na kapag hindi nakapagbayad ng premiums, hindi po ‘yan dahilan para mawalan ng benepisyo.” MANILA – Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) will no longer be required to pay premiums to the Philippine Health Insurance Corp.

ISP: Click It or Ticket!

first_imgVersailles, In. — This month troopers from the Indianapolis District, and districts across the state will join law-enforcement agencies across the nation to increase enforcement of seat-belt laws for Click It or Ticket. Multiple weeks of highly visible patrols will be watching for unrestrained passengers in cars and trucks, both children and adults, the front seat and back, both day and night.Click It or Ticket continues through the Memorial Day holiday and the start of the summer travel season. Overtime police patrols are paid with National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funds administered by the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI).“It is absolutely heartbreaking to see the aftermath of a crash where a fatality could have been prevented by wearing a seat-belt,” said Indianapolis District Commander Lieutenant Jeffrey Payne. “Click It or Ticket is more than an enforcement campaign, it is an educational effort to increase seat-belt use and decrease fatal crashes.”Indiana law requires the driver and all passengers to buckle up. Children under age eight must be properly restrained in child car seat or booster seat.Don’t be a statisticThe share of Hoosiers not buckling up has dropped to 6.6 percent, below the national average of 10.4 percent. But new data from ICJI and the Indiana University Public Policy Institute show that unrestrained motorists still make up 53 percent of traffic deaths.Unrestrained motorists are more likely to die in crashes by 10 times in cars and SUVs, 14 times in pickup trucks and 15 times in vans.“Has this message ‘clicked’ for you?” Lieutenant Payne asked. “If you have a friend or a family member who does not buckle up, speak up! Ask them to change their habits.”Drivers under age 25, especially young male drivers, are the least likely to be buckled during a crash. Injury rates among unrestrained motorists are also higher:In rural countiesWhen a driver is speeding or impairedOn weekend nights between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.Find more seat-belt statistics in the first of several 2018 Crash Fact Sheets by clicking this link:  Crash Fact SheetDon’t buckle up just for yourselfDuring a crash, unrestrained passengers become projectiles that can injure or kill others in the car.Traffic crashes are the leading killer of children ages 1 to 13, and adults set the example. Parents and caregivers who do not buckle up are more likely to have kids who are improperly restrained. That means one ticket for the driver and one for each unrestrained child.Choose the safest car seat for your child’s height and weight at Find a certified car-seat safety technician to assist with installation and proper usage at tipsWhat is the best way to reduce your chances of injury or death? Buckle up! Below are tips for proper seat-belt use:Secure the lap belt across your hips and pelvis, below your stomach.Place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and rib cage, away from your neck.Never put the shoulder belt behind your back or under an arm.If your seat belt doesn’t fit you, or you have an older car with lap belts only, ask your dealer or vehicle manufacturer about seat-belt adjusters, extenders or retrofits.last_img read more

We’re in this together – Poyet

first_img Asked if he had a message for the club’s supporters, he told SAFSee: “Trust me, believe, connect with the team. We are all together in this, we are all together, so it is important that we stick together. “It’s a big, big challenge, but I am really excited. I thought I would have an opportunity in the Premier League and now I have got it. “I need to make sure that I prove they picked the right man to get us from the situation we are in, so I am absolutely delighted.” Poyet inherits a team which is yet to win a Premier League game this season and has managed to collect just a single point from seven attempts to date. He will look to address that situation for the first time at Swansea next Saturday before heading into his opening match at the Stadium of Light, a derby clash with Newcastle which has now taken on added significance for a man who twice guided former club Brighton to FA Cup victory over the Magpies. Asked what his priority would be, he said: “Well it is to address the problems quickly, make sure we train and we convince the players to get better, and slowly that will make us pick up points. “The sooner we win, of course, the better, but the idea is to make sure that we understand the way that we would like them to play football. “We think it’s the best way, so there has to be very good communication with the players, understanding, trust – we need to commit as a group. “We need to make sure that we are all together, players, staff, fans, make sure that we are very strong to make sure that we can win football games.” Poyet, of course, left Brighton under something of a cloud during the summer and has his own reputation as a combustible character, although he is perhaps not in the same league as his predecessor in that respect. However, he has very firm ideas about how he wants a Sunderland side, which played with little confidence or organisation during the latter days of Di Canio’s tenure but improved significantly under temporary boss Kevin Ball, to operate. He said: “I am a very honest person, very honest. I believe that football should be played in one way, which is caring a lot for the ball. “That way of playing football needs to be adaptable to the players. If you want to play football, but you don’t have the players, it’s not going to work, so you need to work, convince, use the ability of the players. “We like to give the players the possibility to perform at their best, to play in the position where they want to play. They can perform, there are no excuses, they can go on the pitch and feel comfortable. “Apart from that, we will help them, explain things that they need to listen to in the next few days. “But the sooner they get it, the better for everybody.” Di Canio, under the guidance of director of football Roberto De Fanti, signed 14 players during the summer as the club embarked upon a radical overhaul of the playing staff. That investment has paid limited dividends to date, but Poyet is convinced there is enough talent within the dressing room to achieve the results required. He said: “That’s why I am here. If there were no talented players, if there were no quality players, the challenge would be practically impossible. “I am convinced that the players are good enough.” New Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has urged the fans to trust him as he attempts to drag the club out of trouble. The 45-year-old Uruguayan has been handed the task of lifting the Black Cats from the foot of the Barclays Premier League table following his appointment as Paolo Di Canio’s successor on Tuesday. Having signed a two-year deal, Poyet is confident he can repair the damage wrought during the Italian’s ill-fated reign and ease them out of the relegation zone. Press Associationlast_img read more

Indian Premier League No one batting with Hardik made it harder for us: Quinton De Kock

first_img“When you have to score of 233, you need to play one or two shots anyway. You have to try against any bowler who comes on and take a chance to get things going.” So if I hit that ball for four or six, you probably would have said ‘great shot’ but unfortunately I got out so didn’t look,” he said about his slog-sweep.The bowlers have too little in the batsmen-dominated format and De Kock said it’s more to do with the batting-friendly sub-continent wickets. “In India they have generally very small fields, while wicket is batting friendly. Australia have bigger ground, while there’s a bit in the wicket for South Africa. Here it is more batting friendly anyway. Bowlers are always under pressure.”De Kock further said he hated every minute of keeping to Russell who slammed a 40-ball 80 not out.”I’m not joking, I hated every minute of it. You can’t fault him. He took his time, and then did what he does the best. You just have to appreciate what is done. Not just this game but in the IPL.Hope he doesn’t do it again against us,” he said.Mumbai Indians will have a return-leg clash against KKR on May 5 which will be their last clash in the league round.

But, unfortunately, it didn’t happen today so there’s the collapse and no one batting with Hardik made it harder for us,” the South African said at the post-match news conference Sunday. De Kock got out without opening his account, after top-edging Sunil Narine in the second over. highlightslast_img read more
