Eisenkot marches into politics with much fanfare, little immediate effect on polls

The much-anticipated entry into the political field of former IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot on Sunday did not make any immediate remarkable impact on voters, according to flash polls by Israel’s three major TV networks. Polls on Channels 12, 13 and Kan showed the National Unity alliance gaining at best two seats, or possibly none at all. The most likely scenario remained gridlock following the November 1 elections, with neither parliamentary block gaining enough seats for a clear majority. Israeli TV polls are notably unreliable, but nevertheless often steer the decision-making of politicians. Eisenkot will take the third spot in National Unity, behind Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar, who respectively head Blue and White and New Hope. Gantz a...

California ponders extending life of state’s last operating nuclear plant beyond 2025

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Friday proposed extending the life of the state's last operating nuclear power plant by at least five to 10 years to maintain reliable power supplies in the climate change era.A draft bill obtained by The Associated Press and which Newsom's office confirmed said the plan would allow the plant to continue operating beyond a scheduled closing by 2025.The bill says impacts of climate change are occurring sooner than anticipated and are simultaneously driving up electrical demand while reducing power supplies. "The governor has been clear for months about the potential need to extend the life of Diablo Canyon," said Anthony York, a spokesperson for Newsom.

Technology, A Strategic Partner For Youth Financial Inclusion

One of the first hurdles that arises when facing finances is, of course, the fear of the unknown. While there are a lot of options available in the market that are designed to promote savings and investments, with fairly economical contributions, I think the difference between the “non-financial” and those involved in investing is huge. In my opinion, the main factor separating the two is easy access to information about financial products and services that are already available to individuals and companies associated with a particular segment within the banking and customer portfolio of banks and institutions. Investment amounts are usually high figures. Those who engage with this segment are, for the most part, not part of the vast potential market of young customers waiting to join t...

More than 2,000 California mental health clinicians set to strike

The unionized psychologists, therapists, chemical dependency counselors and social workers are demanding that Kaiser Permanente provide "desperately needed" services to its patients, claiming that some wait months for needed therapy sessions.The open-ended strike is set to begin Monday, the National Union of Healthcare Workers, which represents 16,000 workers in California and Hawaii, said.

"Patients are getting ripped off while Kaiser's coffers are bulging," union president Sal Rosselli said in a statement. "We don't take striking lightly but it's time to take a stand and make Kaiser spend some of its billions on mental health care."T...

Harvard flunks in these college rankings

Placeholder while article actions loadLast week Education Secretary Miguel Cardona slammed college ranking systems that placed importance on high selectivity in admissions, saying at a summit on excellence and equity in higher education:[M]any institutions spend enormous time and money chasing rankings they feel carry prestige, but in truth, 'do little more than ‘Xerox privilege,’ as one HBCU president says.There's a whole science behind climbing the rankings. It goes like this: compete for the most affluent students by luring them with generous aid, because the most well-prepared students have the best SAT scores and graduate on time; seek favor with your peers from other elite schools with expensive dinners and lavish events, because their opinions carry clout in surveys; and invest i...
