Indonesian telemedicine company YesDok has made its services available through e-wallet DANA in a bid to tap into the growing online medical consultancy sector during the COVID-19 pandemic.YesDok CEO Irwan Hartanto said that bringing the telemedicine feature to DANA was a step further in the two parties’ partnership. The e-wallet has been a payment partner for YesDok since last year.“People are rapidly adapting to digital solutions for daily needs, including medical consultations during the pandemic,” he told the press on Friday. “Hopefully, we can be accessible to more people through this partnership.” YesDok uses a recorded video conference system and can handle up to 6,000 video calls per day.According to a survey by the Mobile Marketing Association, 38 percent of respondents tried online medical consultation services for the first time in April, among other online services such as e-learning and online fitness classes.Read also: The time is right: COVID-19 gives more room for telemedicine to grow in IndonesiaIrwan went on to say that YesDok had seen a three- to five-fold rise in user traffic during the pandemic, with most users consulting about COVID-19-related health issues such as fever, cough and flu symptoms. “What sets us apart from other telemedicine companies is that our service is on-demand 24/7, meaning customers do not need a reservation to reach us,” he said, adding that 70 to 80 percent of reservations were canceled in telemedicine.Telemedicine will become the new normal, he said, but technological adaptation, especially for the older generation, and stable internet connection remain major challenges for the sector.Similarly, ride-hailing giants Grab and Gojek also have telemedicine features in their applications, namely GoodDoctor and Halodoc, respectively. When asked about DANA’s plan to become a super-app company, its chief innovation officer Darrick Rochili said DANA “has no plan to become a super-app per se”, but would be open to partnerships and expanding to other features if it was relevant to its consumers.The e-wallet also saw an overall 15 percent user growth during the pandemic, with 94 percent of users making online transactions.Read also: Will Indonesia’s telemedicine start-ups be the next unicorns?Business research and consultancy Inventure Indonesia’s latest report, titled “30 Consumer Behavior Shifts”, projects that telemedicine start-ups will grow faster after COVID-19 and the competition to offer the best services will be tighter.“Once consumers get a satisfactory user experience that’s convenient, less costly and time-efficient, the service will enter into the mainstream phase with a bigger market,” Inventure’s report reads. “Under such conditions, there is a possibility for the market leader in this type of service to be the next unicorn.”Topics :
Press Release, Public Health Governor Tom Wolf, Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, and Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding today reminded Pennsylvanians to wear masks while shopping and dining to protect and support our local businesses.“Mask-wearing is much more than a requirement; it is a sign of support and respect for our local businesses,” Gov. Wolf said. “Pennsylvania businesses have made significant sacrifices over the past few months and now they are relying on us as consumers to help keep their doors open. Wearing a mask protects everyone from the virus and shows our respect and support for businesses and their employees. They mask-up each day and take other important health and safety measures to protect us and provide us with the goods and services we need and want.”All businesses with in-person operations should follow the building and business safety guidelines issued by the Pennsylvania Secretary of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Specifically, workers and customers must wear a mask when working, shopping, and dining, and employers should provide workers with masks who need them. Guidance for businesses are available for Pennsylvania businesses.“Pennsylvania is opening back up, and with that freedom comes responsibility. We all need to mask up when visiting the restaurants, salons, and storefronts across the commonwealth,” said DCED Sec. Davin. “By asking patrons to wear masks, Pennsylvania’s business owners are stepping up to ensure that their customers and employees feel comfortable and safe. To keep Pennsylvania working, we all need to work together to stop the spread of coronavirus.”Research shows that mask-wearing reduces risk of infection from COVID-19, while not wearing a mask greatly increase a person’s chances of being infected by this contagious and deadly virus.“We want Pennsylvanians to get out and about, it’s important for our mental health to get back to some semblance of normal. But things still aren’t normal, and that’s why you need to wear a mask. Wearing a mask gives you freedom and minimizes risk,” said Secretary Redding. “Wear one for your community and your family. Wear one so that the friendly face you see at the farmers market each week is always there. And most importantly, wear one so that Pennsylvania can continue moving forward.”Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order mandating mask-wearing on July 1. It remains in effect. Frequently Asked Questions about the mask-wearing order can be found here.NOTE: Videos of DCED Secretary Davin and Agriculture Secretary Redding on the importance of wearing a mask are available for download via PAcast.Ver esta página en español.

Source: PLSAGuy Opperman addresses the PLSA conference in October 2018The chancellor’s statement followed months of uncertainty after a national newspaper reported that the DWP was considering abandoning support for the dashboard. However, at an industry conference earlier this month, Guy Opperman, minister for pensions and financial inclusion, told delegates that the government was “utterly committed” to the project.The UK’s Association of British Insurers (ABI) and financial technology firm Origo have so far led the development of a prototype dashboard, which would collate data from providers to display an individual’s pension savings in one place.Anthony Rafferty, managing director at Origo, said his firm was “deeply committed to making the pensions dashboard a reality”.“We have already built the technology to securely find and enable retrieval of individuals’ pensions data, once their identity is securely verified,” he said. “The budget confirms that the Department for Work and Pensions [DWP] will consult later this year on the detailed design for pensions dashboards, and on how an industry-led approach could harness innovation while protecting consumers.“DWP will work closely with the pensions industry and financial technology firms. The budget provides extra funding in 2019-20 to help make this a reality.” The UK government has pledged £5m (€5.6m) to support the establishment of pension dashboards, aimed at collating an individual’s pension savings in one online tool.In his annual budget report, published yesterday, chancellor Philip Hammond said the government would consult on the design of such tools later this year.He also stated that the dashboards would include data on the state pension – an element that industry commentators said was crucial to the project’s success.“The government is taking steps to support the launch of pensions dashboards, innovative tools that will for the first time allow an individual to see their pension pots, including their state pension, in one place,” Hammond said in the budget report. Source: Pension Dashboard ProjectExample of state pension information displayed on the pension dashboard“We have always said that the dashboard would be more effective for consumers if they could also see their state pension on the same page and this now would appear to be the government’s intention.”Huw Evans, director general of the ABI, added that the insurance sector was “ready to continue its collaboration with government on making this vital service a reality”.Steve Webb, policy director at Royal London and a former pensions minister, said including state pension data was “a real step forward” for the development of the dashboard concept.“This greatly increases the prospect of dashboards that cover all the key pension information that consumers need to know,” he said. “The additional £5m a year for the DWP in 2019-20 is also a welcome symbol of the fact that the government is committed to taking this agenda forward, albeit more slowly than we would have wished.”Scott Finnie, product architect at Hymans Robertson, urged the government to establish data standards for companies supplying data to dashboards.“By doing so, it will… allow established providers and new entrants alike to deliver a range of intuitive dashboards and tools to engage consumers in their pension provision,” he said. “By focusing on the data standards, the government will equip and encourage industry to deliver better retirement outcomes for UK consumers.”
The Los Angeles Lakers, reeling from the death of team icon Kobe Bryant, “want to represent what Kobe was about” as they press ahead with the NBA season, coach Frank Vogel said Wednesday. “We want to represent what Kobe was about more than anything,” Vogel said. “We’ve always wanted to make him proud, and that’s not going to be any different here.” Fans gather to mourn the death of NBA legend Kobe Bryant at a mural near Staples Center Vogel, 46, spoke to reporters at the team’s practice facility, where star players including LeBron James and Anthony Davis turned out but did not meet with the media. Vogel said the club had a simple directive for players still coming to terms with Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash on Sunday: “You guys can speak when you’re ready, and not before.” But the timetable for returning to NBA action is set, with the Lakers to host the Portland Trail Blazers at Staples Center arena on Friday. That’s less than a week since Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people were killed when the Sikorsky S-76 slammed into a rugged hillside in thick fog in Calabasas, northwest of Los Angeles. The helicopter was headed to Bryant’s Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, where his daughter was set to play a basketball game. When the team convened on Tuesday, Vogel said, “We did some things that we thought would be therapeutically beneficial. “We got in the gym for some team shooting work, no real practice working on anything in particular. I wanted our guys to come in mentally free but to get a sweat, touch the ball and be around each other. “Then we had a lunch where we all just spent time together and grieved together.” That lunch reportedly included sharing tales of Bryant, but Vogel found himself unable to offer any such reminiscences on Wednesday. “There’s some questions I’m just not ready to answer,” said the coach, who had to ensure that every team member had been informed of Bryant’s death. “It’s just strengthened what we’ve felt all year about our current group, which is we’ve become a family in a very short time. “It’s something that you talk about in the NBA with your teams, but this group in particular has really grown to love each other very rapidly and we understand the importance and the opportunity we have this year,” Vogel said of a squad that takes a Western Conference-leading record of 36-10 into the game against Portland. “This has just brought us closer together.” Promoted ContentThe Biggest Cities In The World So FarWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?13 kids at weddings who just don’t give a hoot2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?A Museum To Rihanna’s Glory Could Soon Be Opened10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

The helicopter was not equipped with a cockpit voice recorder or flight data recorder. Nor did it have the terrain awareness and warning system (TAWS) that the NTSB had recommended be made mandatory on all helicopters with six or more passenger seats. It’s not certain that TAWS could have prevented the crash, with Homendy saying only that it “could have helped to provide information to the pilot on what terrain the pilot was flying in.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Ticket prices for Friday’s game, where the Lakers are expected to honor Bryant’s memory, have skyrocketed on re-sale site StubHub.com, with seats priced at hundreds – and in some cases thousands – of dollars above their face value. Meanwhile, Vanessa Bryant broke her silence on Wednesday, saying she is “devastated” and struggling to imagine life without her husband and daughter. “We are completely devastated by the sudden loss of my adoring husband, Kobe — the amazing father of our children; and my beautiful, sweet Gianna,” Vanessa wrote in an Instagram post. She said they are fighting to keep going and take comfort in the memories of the life they had together. “Kobe, and our baby girl, Gigi, are shining on us to light the way. Our love for them is endless — and that’s to say, immeasurable. “I just wish I could hug them, kiss them and bless them. Have them here with us, forever.” Also, federal investigators completed their inspection of the crash site and handed it over to local authorities. Police on horseback and all-terrain vehicles were brought in to secure the area, which was becoming a pilgrimage point for fans. The Los Angeles County Coroner said Tuesday that four of the crash victims – Bryant, pilot Ara Zobayan, baseball coach John Altobelli and Sarah Chester – had been officially identified through fingerprints. The coroner’s office was still working to formally identify the five remaining passengers: Gianna Bryant, her Mamba Academy teammates Alyssa Altobelli and Payton Chester, Alyssa’s mother Keri Altobelli and assistant Mamba Academy coach Christina Mauser. A preliminary, fact-based report on the accident is expected in 10 days, according to Jennifer Homendy of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Loading…

Eddie Lynam has warned Sole Power was in better form earlier in the season ahead of his run in Friday’s Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes at York. The seven-year-old caused a 100-1 surprise in the Group One four years ago and has since gone on to prove himself as one of the best sprinters on the planet. He won the King’s Stand at Royal Ascot in June but was a late withdrawal from the July Cup, won by stablemate Slade Power, on account of soft ground. However, he has since suffered a skin infection and missed some training. “The times came out very fast. I think one of the furlongs was done in nine seconds and change, which is not unheard of, but it’s very rare. A couple of them tried to take us on early doors, but like I said to Andrea (Atzeni, jockey of Take Cover), if they are going too fast for him, they are going too fast and will never get home.” Just behind Take Cover at Goodwood was Moviesta, who is returning to his best for Bryan Smart having won the King George Stakes 12 months previously. “I’m a Yorkshireman so to go to the Ebor meeting with some good chances is what it’s all about. To get a winner is the dream. Moviesta is really well. I am very happy with him. He ran really well at Goodwood and he has been in terrific form since,” said Smart. Part-owner Ritchie Fiddes said: “We need it to stay dry as he wants quick ground to be seen at his best – whenever he’s had conditions to suit he’s never disappointed. He’s now back on song, is training really well and is a stronger horse than last year. “If Sole Power’s at his best he’s the one to beat but we know there’s not much between us and Take Cover – Goodwood suits the front-runners more and this is a step up for him.” G Force is another who ran in the Goodwood race and also behind Take Cover at York. He had a valid excuse for not finishing closer, according to trainer David O’Meara. “We felt G Force was unlucky behind Take Cover in the City Walls Stakes. He was struck over the head by a whip and it probably cost him. He then finished behind Take Cover at Goodwood but he’ll head to the Nunthorpe. He won well at York in the spring and seems in good form. Any ease in the ground would suit,” said O’Meara. Kevin Ryan’s Astaire ran well in the Duke of York in May but has been found wanting behind Slade Power the last twice. Ryan also runs Hot Streak, winner of the Temple Stakes. “It’s going to be interesting dropping back to five furlongs but Hughesie (Richard Hughes) rode him in the Duke of York and he said he’d love to ride him over five. It didn’t really enter my mind but if you don’t take the advice of someone like Richard Hughes, with all the experience he has got – it will be interesting. He’s in great form, it’s nice to have two horses of that calibre to run in the race,” said Ryan. Press Association “Since being forced to miss the July Cup because of the soft ground he has had a bad skin infection, like ringworm or dermatitis, which forced him to miss 10 days of training. We had to have his rugs off the whole time, which was not ideal, but it is better that it happened in the summer, when it is warmer, and he has been back in full training for two weeks and worked well on Tuesday morning,” said Lynam. “My gut feeling is that he may not be quite in the same form as he was before Royal Ascot, but he is coming back to himself day by day so we will take him to York hopeful rather than confident. This will be the fourth time that he has run in the Nunthorpe. He is about 45 kilos heavier now than when he won it in 2010 so he has developed a lot and got a lot stronger. “I keep expecting him to show signs of old age but that has yet to materialise – I would even say that his most impressive race ever was his last. Like a good wine he seems to get better with age and hopefully that can carry on a bit longer. “With a come-from-behind horse like him the leaders don’t tend to come back to you in the Nunthorpe, unlike at Ascot. But he has won the race before and is one horse that no one else should take for granted. If the ground came up soft we would have to consider withdrawing him, but if it was good to soft we would probably take a chance with him.” Aidan O’Brien’s Cougar Mountain was a five-length winner on his debut in June before being pitched into the July Cup, where he finished a perfectly respectable fifth. “Cougar Mountain seems to be fine since his run in the July Cup. Obviously, it was a big jump up for a very young and inexperienced horse, so we have to be very careful and tender with him. But he seems to be in good form,” said O’Brien. Take Cover was three lengths behind Sole Power at Royal Ascot but has won a Listed race at York and the King George at Glorious Goodwood since, propelling his trainer David Griffiths into the limelight. Griffiths, who trains a string of 20, said: “We’ve got to take on Sole Power, Hot Streak, Pearl Secret and those guys are obviously very good. I think Sole Power is the one seriously, seriously good horse that you would be scared of, but I think we are entitled to take our chance, aren’t we? If you look at the Goodwood race, a lot of them were proven Group performers – Stepper Point was second in the King’s Stand. On paper, it was pretty much a Group One.
