“Many medical practices are already completing medical reports electronically, but seeing an increase in digitized procedures could speed up the process and make things safer”

For the Season 5 premiere, I’m joined by Peter Hamilton and co-host Roy McLoughlin. Peter has worked in the insurance industry for approximately 40 years and has held a number of positions aimed at improving access to insurance and the reputation of the insurance industry as a whole.

The need for collaboration is more than ever. Real positive change can be brought about within the industry if different parties work together with the same end goal. Much more needs to be done to improve things like access to insurance.

This year, the focus is on electronic GPRs. The NHS has been strained during Covid, which means it can sometimes take a while for medical reports to come back. Many medical practices are already completing medical reports electronically, but seeing an increase in digitized procedures could speed up the process and make things safer from a data protection perspective.

There has been an increase in customers wanting to know about the ethical and social behavior of the suppliers they use, so keeping up to date on this as someone working in the industry could prove beneficial.

You can listen to the episode at https://practical-protection.co.uk/the-year-ahead/.

The next episode of Season 5 will be the first episode of Mental Health Awareness Week, in association with the Institute of the Faculty of Actuaries. It will be a series of podcasts complemented by a live webinar, focusing on mental health and its impact on the different stages of the insurance journey.

If you listen to this as part of your job, you can apply for a CPD certificate. These are now accredited by CPD UK, through our sponsor Octo Members.

Once you’ve listened to the episode, don’t forget to claim your certificate here: https://practical-protection.co.uk/claim-your-cpd/.

You may find that your work systems are not fond of the CPD form (it’s a Google form). Please don’t worry if this is the case. Contact me on social media or via the website and I can issue the certificate directly to you.

No matter how you slice it, everything that could go wrong has gone wrong lately, and with a very tough schedule ahead, the guys are trying to figure out what’s next.

The A GARDEN OF TERRIBLE BLOOMS podcast series features short pieces of the weird and surreal set in Los Angeles https://clatskaniechiefnews.com/the-a-garden-of-terrible-blooms-podcast-series-features-short-pieces-of-the-weird-and-surreal-set-in-los-angeles/ Sat, 15 Jan 2022 04:44:19 +0000 https://clatskaniechiefnews.com/the-a-garden-of-terrible-blooms-podcast-series-features-short-pieces-of-the-weird-and-surreal-set-in-los-angeles/ Dear Mary, the latest episode of award-winning playwright/director Sharon Yablon’s A Garden of Terrible Blooms podcast series “short pieces of the weird and surreal set in Los Angeles”, is set to launch on Valentine’s Day .

Dear Mary, the latest episode of award-winning playwright/director Sharon Yablon’s A Garden of Terrible Blooms podcast series “short pieces of the weird and surreal set in Los Angeles”, is set to launch on Valentine’s Day . To date, ten episodes are available to listen to on www.terribleblooms.net.

A passion project born out of Yablon’s love of surrealism, the dark, and the darker side of Los Angeles, A Garden of Terrible Blooms offers a dreamlike, character-led tour through a vanishing city, even as they cross it. Each play is set in a different part of LA, or nearby locations where locals go to escape the city, but still find themselves haunted by it. Yablon’s characters roam back alleys, mermaid-filled Hollywood nights, the coyote outskirts, and the desert, each searching for a glimmer of connection and often redemption. Time is blurry. The feeling of history is everywhere. What better place to explore these themes than in Los Angeles, a huge city where age can seem to stand still, seasons barely change, people reinvent themselves, and no one is who they seem?

Each piece is heavily influenced by music and features original songs by various local Los Angeles musicians. Unlike other audio theaters, the music is not just transitional, but functions as an additional character.

“I see these pieces as collaborations with artists from different disciplines, something that has always been very special to me,” explains Yablon. “Music is a big part of my creative process.”

The diverse and impressive list of musicians who contributed original material includes pianist and composer Don Preston, original member of Frank Zappa’s The Mothers of Invention; rock musician David Haerle; electronic composer and avant-garde Randy Greif; classical composer Elliott Goldkind; swing musician Atom Smith; and up-and-coming musician Jack Littman, to name a few.

Likewise, the Terrible Blooms website is a collaboration, featuring original photographs taken around Los Angeles and the whimsical, fairytale paintings of Cassie Taggart.

Originally from Los Angeles, Yablon has written stories inspired by and set in Los Angeles throughout his career.

“I’ve always been fascinated by LA history,” she says. “I love how an old building is reminiscent of noir, or how a corner can be famous because one of LA’s iconic serial killers left his mark there. Beneath the veneer of city sunshine, the physical beauty of its people and the promise of fame, there is a rot.These plays are not about the stereotypical people of LA – they are about those who go unnoticed, ordinary and forgotten, and sometimes the dead.The plays combine momentary and unlikely connections between characters, which I’m particularly interested in – the mystery and magic of the connection between people, and its transience.”

In the upcoming Dear Mary, Hank Bunker and Shawna Casey play two people who live in the same neighborhood, but have never spoken. Finding themselves haunted by lost loves in a sunny town on Valentine’s Day, they seek winter and solace on a deserted beach.

Previous episodes include:

The Last Transmission, set in the skies and Griffith Park, in which a police helicopter pilot, haunted by the carnage below, veers off course, unsure of what he’ll find. With John Nielsen, Anna Khaja and Gregory Littman.

Inspired by the serial murders of the 1980s, The Grim Sleeper stars Keith Szarabajka and Gbeke Fawehinmi as a wanderer and a lost girl trying to uncover their dark past in a downtown Los Angeles alley.

Inspired by the San Diego McDonald’s massacre, Ms. Huberty stars Max Faugno as a true crime buff who seeks out the wife of a mass murderer (Jennifer Lee Weaver), hoping to learn more about the murders.

Two middle-aged bachelors (Soren Narnia and Kim Debus) try to hook up at a Hollywood bar before it closes at 1:58 a.m.

A Night With Gig Young, inspired by true events, stars Gregory Littman, Dig Wayne and Lisa Denke, which takes us back to the Hollywood of yesteryear. At the end of his career, actor Gig Young is invited to speak to a group of fans, but is instead led on a journey through the dark side of his life by a heckler.

In Around and Around, a man meets a mysterious traveler while lost in an abandoned bus station near Olvera Street. With Darrett Sanders and Michael Bonnabel.

Nothing Good Happens After Midnight, inspired by the Hillside Strangler murders of the late 70s, is set in Echo Park. During a walk in the hills, the discovery of a voodoo doll upsets the plans of a couple (Adrian Alejandro Cruz and Jacqueline Wright).

Ryan Cutrona plays an insomnia-ridden man who isn’t sure he’s alone at his Beverly Hills estate in No Casanova.

Ice Machine introduces us to two strangers (Michael Shamus Wiles and Jesse Fair) whose paths cross at a Route 66-era motel in the California desert, sparking memories.

Finally, in A German Christmas, a young German away from home (Kiff Scholl) finds himself spending Christmas Eve in Rancho Park with an older woman (Lisa Denke) whose husband has left her.

Happy New Year 2022! New year, same old us. The Electronic Wireless Show Podcast will make no effort to change or improve; this is our promise to you, listener. For our first episode of the new year, we’re doing the traditional “what games are we most looking forward to” episode. Yes, our most anticipated games. There is very little crossbreeding and lots of orc talk.

Before that, however, we are fortunate to have granted an interview to the “It’s me, Blorko“man. Yeah, we’ve got the man who created the hottest Marvel-based viral tweet this winter, live and on the podcast (I mean, technically, he’s on the podcast every week, but this week, we ask him about the Blorko case for about 20 minutes).

You can listen on Spotify, or above, or go straight to Soundcloud where you can download it for later. You can also discuss the episode on our Discord channel, which has a dedicated podcast chat room.

You can also get the RSS feed here or find it on iTunes, Stitcher or Pocket Casts.

Connections
Matthew and Nate are looking forward to the new levels in Hitman 3.

Nate is off to a good start for some Homeworld 2, as well as Total War: Warhammer III. He gives us an introduction to Total War games and explains why Warhammer is a good place to climb in the franchise.

Matthew is into the zombies and parkour of Dying Light 2 no matter how many hours it lasts.

Like fans of classic indie games, I’m really up for Strange Horticulture and Bear And Breakfast. I’m also interested in any news about Haunted Chocolatier or Little Witch In The Woods.

Matthew also gives A Plague Tale: Requiem a shout out, because who could forget that dear rat boy, and Ghostwire Toyko (who looks pretty cool).

Recommendations this week are Keigo Higashino’s Silent Parade, a cool mystery novel, the scandals of the literary world found in long-running The Spine Collector and A Suspense Novelist’s Trail Of Deceptions, and Element Games for all your certified Warhammer resale needs.

If you’re like most of us, trying to get online during a global pandemic, you probably have a bittersweet relationship with a program called Zoom. It is useful, but also exhausting.

Julie Boland, professor of psychology and linguistics at the University of Michigan, calls this feeling zoom fatigue. This is a problem that remote workers and students are familiar with. Part of the problem stems from difficulty finding a turn to speak, disrupting the natural flow of in-person conversation.

“Response times were about three times longer when conversing on Zoom than in person,” Boland and his team of three undergraduate students concluded of their study participants.

“Pauses between speakers in, say, a two-person general English conversation are, on average, only about 200 milliseconds,” Boland said. “And that’s faster than we can do just about anything.”

She explained that in order to respond so quickly in person, scientists believe that a conversation partner’s brain waves synchronize with the rate at which the other partner speaks.

“This kind of automatic synchronization of your brainwaves doesn’t work as well on Zoom because, in addition to the kind of normal speech rate variability, you have this extra variability caused by electronic transmission lag.”

She continued to say that response times are just one contributing factor to Zoom fatigue.

“It’s probably the combination of a lot of different things,” Boland said. “That can include that we don’t make the same kind of eye contact, for example, or non-visual cues don’t work as well because maybe you don’t see the person’s body as much.”

When it comes to combating zoom fatigue and maintaining your break, Boland offered some tips.

“I would suggest experimenting with the settings,” she said. “Turn off the cameras. It can help. You can try connecting by phone instead of Zoom. Sometimes I find that switching between phone and Zoom is always more enjoyable than Zoom.

Throughout her studies, Boland also observed a natural adaptation to Zoom fatigue that helps remote workers communicate in online meetings. But that might be the last thing you would guess: talking any longer.

“If part of the problem and zoom fatigue is the kind of added stress of deciding when to start talking after your partner has, taking longer turns is a way to alleviate some of that stress because there is less back and forth. So it’s something that people seem to do naturally without even thinking about it.

And another unexpected suggestion from him evokes the animal world:

“I often had a pet that popped up while I was teaching, and my students kind of liked it, I think.”

Turkey: Data Privacy Detective Podcast – Episode 78: Data Localization, The Case of Turkey

To print this article, simply register or connect to Mondaq.com.

Turkey is the first stop 2022 of our global data localization tour. What is Turkey’s approach to cross-border transfers of personal data concerning its citizens and residents?

Turkey’s personal data protection law is comprehensive and similar to the old European Union data protection directive, although it differs in some respects. Data localization is not part of this existing Turkish law. Instead, Turkey is taking a sectoral approach to the cross-border collection and processing of the personal data of its residents. Turkish banks must collect and store data from Turkish customers in Turkey. Data localization requirements apply to payment and e-money institutions, forcing companies like Paypal or Venmo to locate a payment system in Turkey and comply with Turkish data privacy regulations. Social media providers must register and report Turkish social media users to Turkish authorities every six months.

In August 2021, the Turkish Data Protection Authority (KVKK) proposed to amend Turkish law to allow cross-border data transfers if it makes an adequacy decision regarding another country. But unlike the GDPR, the amendment would require the foreign country to be reciprocal in its data privacy laws, a unique approach that goes beyond adequacy. If adopted, the KVKK approach would encourage multinational companies to use Turkey-based servers and a Turkish subsidiary to gain broad access to the Turkish market, but allow flexibility through binding corporate rules and notification to customers. Turkish authorities of a standard commitment.

Tune in to Episode 78 for how and why Turkey can align with evolving European standards instead of the more authoritarian and protectionist rules evident in China, Russia and India.

By listening to podcasts, I have learned to appreciate the sound layers that mark the context of my life.

I pour the coffee. I go over my tasks for the day. I put in the ingredients to start preparing the meals for the day. There’s half an hour left until yoga class, so put on the headphones and my morning begins in earnest.

There was a time when I fed this goblet of filtered drink as I perused the newspaper. But time seems to have crumpled up in these dense knots, unfolding and escaping into nothingness if I don’t squeeze my multiple to-dos inside every twist and turn of its second score fiber. Quietly browsing the large format newspaper is a weekend luxury; other days I have to settle for the endless scrolling of social media or the click-and-skim of online news portals. But with these bluetooth-enabled micro-electronic wonders talking in my ears, I can take care of morning housework even as I’m listening to the news – and perspectives – of the day.

Podcasts – and speaking in other ways – made the mundane tasks of my daily life a little more bearable (think Mary Poppins and a spoonful of sugar!) And helped me deal with the isolation of the last 19. month. While the early days of the pandemic turned everyone and their niece into a podcaster, the following year saw the emergence of a whole slew of nifty new shows that confirmed that this format of content delivery was here to stay. So, as the number of independent podcasts created under tables and in bedroom closets continues to increase, so do the audio portfolios of major media brands. Consulting firm Redseer reported that in 2021, nearly 20% of India’s population (over 12 years old, with internet access) listened to podcasts in one form or another, an increase of 34% from compared to 2020. They also noted that Indians on average spend around 2% of their online media consumption time on podcasts.

I don’t consider myself to be an “average” podcast listener – it’s by far my favorite medium. More and more, I find myself referring to something that I have listened to much more often than something that I have read.

Even before the pandemic, I was a podcast addict, spending my two hour commute listening to dramas, documentaries, real crime, feature films and talk, but listening has filled what one could. think of it as the empty hours between start and finish or the time spent waiting for something, such as milk to boil or sleep to come.

But for the past year or so, listening has filled different kinds of spaces – perhaps not empty, but certainly open. I searched and found a variety of voices; some provide stimulation and feed my curious mind. Others offer comfort and hope, a respite from the run-run-run of the workday; I mentioned a lot in this column. Yet others let me laugh out loud as I clean the dishes after dinner, making family members wonder if I wasn’t losing him so slowly (now they look at my ears first, then roll over. eyes).

Sometimes I listened deeply, other times with only one ear, but by listening to podcasts I have learned to better appreciate the layers of sound that mark the context of my life. And when the headphones came out, I learned to pay more attention to words, the voices that speak them, and the silences that punctuate speech.
