LHCR Earns Excellence in Service Award from Leading Age Ohio!

In recognition of the Mercy Occupational Health Clinic that opened on our campus last year, Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve is this year’s recipient of Leading Age Ohio’s Excellence in Service Award. This award recognizes our willingness to pursue an enhanced quality of life for our employees and a great leadership initiative for our campus. Staff recently received the award at the Leading Age Ohio Annual Conference and Trade show in Columbus.

After nearly four years of planning, the Occupational Health Clinic opened in the newly renovated area of our campus that was the former resident neighborhood called Sunshine Lane. Charlie Rinne, CEO sought a low-cost means to provide basic healthcare services to a large population of our staff. In addition, it provides new hire physicals, toxicity screenings and the treatment of minor work injuries for our employees and employees from other businesses in the surrounding area. Leasing the space to the Mercy Health System generates additional revenue for our campus and increases our visibility in the community.

Within steps of their workplace, our employees can receive medical care quickly. Our residents are also beneficiaries of this goodwill because staff will spend less sick time away from the workplace. We are pleased that Leading Age Ohio recognized our campus for this special award. Please view our 90-scond video highlighting the features of this clinic.

** LeadingAge Ohio is a nonprofit organization that represents approximately 500 long-term care organizations and hospices, as well as those providing ancillary health care and housing services, in more than 150 Ohio towns and cities. The continuum of care reflected by the member organizations serve an estimated 400,000 elderly Ohioans annually and employ more than 35,000 persons statewide.

Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve is an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing excellence in health care, rehabilitation and senior living services, including Assisted Living. Concord Reserve is open to individuals of all faiths. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Private Pay and several private insurances.

RBI to form guidelines on e-commerce, says Deputy Governor HR Khan

The concerns come within days of Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman saying that her department was watching the developments in the fledgling e-commerce space. (Photo: Reuters)

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has some concerns on e-commerce transactions and will be coming out with some guidelines on the same, Deputy Governor HR Khan said on Wednesday.

“There are some issues which we are trying to look at. E-commerce is innovative and we cannot push away, so we will see. We are looking at coming out with some guidelines on it,” Khan told reporters on the sidelines of an event orgainsed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) in Mumbai.

The Deputy Governor, however, did not elaborate what the specific concerns of the regulator are.

In August, RBI had found that US-based taxi aggregator Uber was flouting payments norms and had asked it to comply by October 31, for which the company has sought more time.

Uber was following its practice that falls short on the two-step user authentication norms as laid out by the central bank.

The concerns voiced by the senior RBI official come within days of Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman saying that her department was watching the developments in the fledgling e-commerce space including some cases involving e-commerce majors in the courts over the market model.

It also comes after traditional brick-and-mortar traders approached the fair trade regulator Competition Commission of India (CII) in this regard.

Khan said the apex bank will come out with final guidelines on trade receivables discounting system, a draft of which was issued in July 2014.

“We expect it is going to be a big game changer for the receivables of small and medium industry. We are going to put the guidelines and the application will be invited to middle of February,” he added.

Under the guidelines, both factoring and reverse factoring will be allowed, he said. On the foreign investors’ caps in government securities, the deputy governor said the increase would come about but in a phased manner.

When asked about the Budget announcement of bond buy-backs to extend the maturity and reduce repayment burdens, Khan did not give an exact timeline or quantum of the mop-up and limited to saying that it will be done by March 2015.

On the recently issued guidelines for establishment of the payments banks and small finance banks, he said the new banks will not be a threat to existing banks but may increase competition.

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve

Areas with poor drainages support swamp forests, while other parts dissected by deep, expansive gorges have numerous streams tumbling through, creating rapids, waterfalls and standstill pools. It is, however, not merely the forest and landscape that are so diversified.

The variable climate and large altitudinal gradient have helped to produce an amazingly heterogeneous set of creatures that live here. Some of these include the jaguar, ocelot, Baird s tapir, three-wattled bellbird, bare-necked umbrellabird, and the famously elusive resplendent quetzal.

History. In the early 1950s, a group of Quakers from the United States left their homes in Alabama and arrived in Monteverde at a time when the region was just beginning to be settled. The Quakers, fleeing the United States to avoid being drafted into the Korean War, established a simple life in Monteverde centered on dairy and cheese production. Some of these families helped establish the Monteverde and Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserves some 20 years later.

In 1972, the Monteverde rainforest was threatened by local farmers looking to expand their property and homestead on certain forest sites. With this prospect in mind, visiting scientists George Powell and his wife joined forces with longtime resident Wildford Guidon to promote the establishment of a nature preserve. The Tropical Science Center, a non-governmental scientific and environmental organization, proved receptive to the efforts of the Powells and Guidon, and accepted institutional responsibility for ownership and management of the protected areas. An initial land purchase of 328 hectares formed the core of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve.

Following the preserve’s creation, the Tropical Science Center continued to secure the financial and human resources necessary to expand, consolidate, and properly protect the preserve s current 10,500 hectares. See more Monteverde photos .

Hours. For daily schedules and rates, please click the tour reservation options below. Children ages 6 and under are free.

Information. The restaurant, souvenir shop and art gallery are open from 7 AM to 4 PM. There are restrooms at the entrance but none on the trails.

Location. 3.6 miles (6 km) SE of Santa Elena, Monteverde. See Monteverde map for more information.

Getting there. Buses heading to the reserve leave from the Banco Nacional in Santa Elena at 6:15 AM, 7:20 AM and 1:15 PM. Return buses leave the reserve at 11:30 AM, 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM. Cost is $1 each way. Visitors can board the bus anywhere along the road between the town of Santa Elena and the entrance of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Those that do not wish to take the bus can take a taxi either way, which costs around $10 (for up to five passengers) each way.

Hiking Trails in Monteverde. The trails here are well maintained. Regular shoes are fine, as long as you are able to walk comfortably. There is no need for rubber boots or hiking shoes for daily trips. You may, however, need this type of footwear if you plan on staying overnight in one of the huts.
