Deutsche Bank cuts ties with 3, 400 clients in trading business #germany,united

Deutsche Bank cuts ties with 3,400 clients in trading business

By Arno Schuetze | FRANKFURT

FRANKFURT Deutsche Bank’s Global Markets division will cut ties with about 3,400 clients in its debt and equities sales activities, the bank said on Friday. Deutsche Bank will immediately cease debt sales services to some financial institutions and hedge funds as well as equity sales activities, the execution of equities trading orders and equity structuring activities for some clients, a spokesman said, citing an internal memo.

Germany’s biggest bank is looking to shed clients that cost more to service than they bring in in returns as part of efforts to turn around its business and boost its capital.

Deutsche Bank Chief Executive John Cryan is stepping up the restructuring process as the bank finalises talks with U.S. justice authorities over a multi-billion dollar fine related to U.S. mortgages.

In October 2015, Cryan had said at a strategy presentation that Deutsche Bank would reduce the number of clients in its Global Markets and Corporate & Investment Banking divisions by about 50 percent.

“We expect to off-board about half of the current list of clients as the economic returns in these relationships are inadequate to us,” he said at the time. He also said that 80 percent of the investment bank’s income came from 30 percent of clients.

Deutsche Bank is still among the top 5 trading houses in debt and top 10 in equities globally, according to research firm Coalition. But the bank has lost market share as it retreats from a period of expansion, in which it had focused mainly on revenue growth and less on profitability.

  • Pet-Friendly Hotels in United States #hotel #chains #uk

    #motels that allow dogs

    #

    Being Pet-Friendly

    When people think pet-friendly–extremely pet-friendly–many think Europe. However, in our many years of experience, we’ve seen the US become more and more more pet-friendly, to the point where you can feel comfortable finding not only pet-friendly hotels and other lodging for your dog or cat, but also a wide array of pet-friendly services and venues–in small towns as well as large cosmopolitan areas.

    In the old days you could only find pet-friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Inns, while larger hotel chains were wary of accepting pets. That’s all changed. Now, they’ve learned that being pet-friendly is not only the right attitude–it’s also good business. That’s why you can now drive into practically any town and find a hotel, bed & breakfast, inn, cabin or cottage that is dog friendly or cat friendly, or both.

    Of course, being “pet-friendly” means different things to different lodgings. Some allow all pets and all sizes. Some have size restrictions and fees or deposits. Others might put you a smoking room. At petswelcome, we made a conscious decision to list ALL lodgings that accept pets, no matter the policy. And while $150 non-refundable “deposit” is egregious, as you move down the line, the distinctions become less offensive and harder to judge. The bottom line is that we figured it was best to simply list the pet policy and let you decide. One person’s outrage is another person’s pet paradise.

    You can use the search form above or browse through the states below to find a complete list of all pet-friendly cities in that particular state. Our lodgings also include Bed & Breakfasts, Cabins and Cottages, Inns and Motels.

    Gramercy Park Hotel

    The hotel at a glance

    For our New York vacation, we we were looking for a hotel in midtown Manhattan, a location perfect for shopping and visiting NYC. We finally selected the Gramercy Park Hotel.

    It was very different from other hotels in New York. We were enchanted by the hotel decor designed by Ian Schrager in an artfully revisited bohemian style. His artistic sensuality literally carried us away. We admired the skillful blend of furniture styles and the clever choice of works of art enhanced by a Renaissance color palette inspired by the famous Raphael. We unreservedly liked this concept of modern luxury, the beautiful rugs, the heavy bright pink velvet curtains framing the mahogany windows. We were totally mesmerized by the beauty of the place and amazed by the designer’s talent and creativity. But the best was yet to come.

    In the morning we took an ‘à la carte’ breakfast in the Gramercy terrace, a wonderful environment with its lush vegetation. The service was fast and friendly. In this landscaped indoor garden, we immediately forgot that we were in the heart of New York City, especially when the sun gratified us with its warm presence.

    We also loved to spend time at the Rose Bar and Jade Bar with their most original atmosphere. Located on the 16th floor of the hotel, it is a private lounge-type area where we could sit leisurely surrounded by masterworks of renowned 20-century artists and where we thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere as well as the the well-chosen music and chatted with other guests before returning to the tranquility of our room.

    Our stay at the Gramercy Park was really fabulous and even better than we had hoped for. I absolutely recommend this original and luxurious hotel, the perfect choice for anyone who hates getting bored.

    Our Hidden History of Corporations in the United States #united #states #corp

    Our Hidden History of Corporations in the United States

    When American colonists declared independence from England in 1776, they also freed themselves from control by English corporations that extracted their wealth and dominated trade. After fighting a revolution to end this exploitation, our country s founders retained a healthy fear of corporate power and wisely limited corporations exclusively to a business role. Corporations were forbidden from attempting to influence elections, public policy, and other realms of civic society.

    Initially, the privilege of incorporation was granted selectively to enable activities that benefited the public, such as construction of roads or canals. Enabling shareholders to profit was seen as a means to that end. The states also imposed conditions (some of which remain on the books, though unused) like these*:

    • Corporate charters (licenses to exist) were granted for a limited time and could be revoked promptly for violating laws.
    • Corporations could engage only in activities necessary to fulfill their chartered purpose.
    • Corporations could not own stock in other corporations nor own any property that was not essential to fulfilling their chartered purpose.
    • Corporations were often terminated if they exceeded their authority or caused public harm.
    • Owners and managers were responsible for criminal acts committed on the job.
    • Corporations could not make any political or charitable contributions nor spend money to influence law-making.

    For 100 years after the American Revolution, legislators maintained tight controll of the corporate chartering process. Because of widespread public opposition, early legislators granted very few corporate charters, and only after debate. Citizens governed corporations by detailing operating conditions not just in charters but also in state constitutions and state laws. Incorporated businesses were prohibited from taking any action that legislators did not specifically allow.

    States also limited corporate charters to a set number of years. Unless a legislature renewed an expiring charter, the corporation was dissolved and its assets were divided among shareholders. Citizen authority clauses limited capitalization, debts, land holdings, and sometimes, even profits. They required a company s accounting books to be turned over to a legislature upon request. The power of large shareholders was limited by scaled voting, so that large and small investors had equal voting rights. Interlocking directorates were outlawed. Shareholders had the right to remove directors at will.

    In Europe, charters protected directors and stockholders from liability for debts and harms caused by their corporations. American legislators explicitly rejected this corporate shield. The penalty for abuse or misuse of the charter was not a plea bargain and a fine, but dissolution of the corporation.

    In 1819 the U.S. Supreme Court tried to strip states of this sovereign right by overruling a lower court s decision that allowed New Hampshire to revoke a charter granted to Dartmouth College by King George III. The Court claimed that since the charter contained no revocation clause, it could not be withdrawn. The Supreme Court s attack on state sovereignty outraged citizens. Laws were written or re-written and new state constitutional amendments passed to circumvent the (Dartmouth College v Woodward ) ruling. Over several decades starting in 1844, nineteen states amended their constitutions to make corporate charters subject to alteration or revocation by their legislatures. As late as 1855 it seemed that the Supreme Court had gotten the people s message when in Dodge v. Woolsey it reaffirmed state s powers over artificial bodies.

    But the men running corporations pressed on. Contests over charter were battles to control labor, resources, community rights, and political sovereignty. More and more frequently, corporations were abusing their charters to become conglomerates and trusts. They converted the nation s resources and treasures into private fortunes, creating factory systems and company towns. Political power began flowing to absentee owners, rather than community-rooted enterprises.

    The industrial age forced a nation of farmers to become wage earners, and they became fearful of unemployment a new fear that corporations quickly learned to exploit. Company towns arose. and blacklists of labor organizers and workers who spoke up for their rights became common. When workers began to organize, industrialists and bankers hired private armies to keep them in line. They bought newspapers to paint businessmen as heroes and shape public opinion. Corporations bought state legislators, then announced legislators were corrupt and said that they used too much of the public s resources to scrutinize every charter application and corporate operation.

    Government spending during the Civil War brought these corporations fantastic wealth. Corporate executives paid borers to infest Congress and state capitals, bribing elected and appointed officials alike. They pried loose an avalanche of government financial largesse. During this time, legislators were persuaded to give corporations limited liability, decreased citizen authority over them, and extended durations of charters.

    Attempts were made to keep strong charter laws in place, but with the courts applying legal doctrines that made protection of corporations and corporate property the center of constitutional law, citizen sovereignty was undermined. As corporations grew stronger, government and the courts became easier prey. They freely reinterpreted the U.S. Constitution and transformed common law doctrines.

    One of the most severe blows to citizen authority arose out of the 1886 Supreme Court case of Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad . Though the court did not make a ruling on the question of corporate personhood , thanks to misleading notes of a clerk, the decision subsequently was used as precedent to hold that a corporation was a natural person. This story was detailed in The Theft of Human Rights , a chapter in Thom Hartmann s recommended book Unequal Protection .

    From that point on, the 14th Amendment, enacted to protect rights of freed slaves, was used routinely to grant corporations constitutional personhood. Justices have since struck down hundreds of local, state and federal laws enacted to protect people from corporate harm based on this illegitimate premise. Armed with these rights, corporations increased control over resources, jobs, commerce, politicians, even judges and the law.

    A United States Congressional committee concluded in 1941, The principal instrument of the concentration of economic power and wealth has been the corporate charter with unlimited power .

    Many U.S.-based corporations are now transnational, but the corrupted charter remains the legal basis for their existence. At Reclaim Democracy. we believe citizens can reassert the convictions of our nation s founders who struggled successfully to free us from corporate rule in the past. These changes must occur at the most fundamental level the U.S. Constitution.

    Titanium Element Facts

    Discovery of Titanium

    Dr. Doug Stewart

    Titanium s discovery was announced in 1791 by the amateur geologist Reverend William Gregor from Cornwall, England. (1), (2)

    Gregor found a black, magnetic sand that looked like gunpowder in a stream in the parish of Mannacan in Cornwall, England. (We now call this sand ilmenite; it is a mixture consisting mainly of the oxides of iron and titanium.)

    Gregor analyzed the sand, finding it was largely magnetite (Fe3 O4 ) and the rather impure oxide of a new metal, which he described as reddish brown calx.

    This calx turned yellow when dissolved in sulfuric acid and purple when reduced with iron. tin or zinc. Gregor concluded that he was dealing with a new metal, which he named manaccanite in honor of the parish of Mannacan.

    Having discovered a new metal, Gregor returned to his pastoral duties.

    Little more happens in our story until 1795, when the well-known German chemist Martin Klaproth experienced the thrill of discovering a new metallic element. Klaproth called the new metal titanium, after the Titans, the sons of the Earth goddess in Greek mythology.

    Klaproth discovered titanium in the mineral rutile, from Boinik, Hungary. Just like Gregor s calx, the rutile was a red color. In 1797 Klaproth read Gregor s account from 1791 and realized that the red oxide in which he had found titanium and the red oxide in which Gregor had found manaccanite were in fact the same; titanium and maccanite were the same element and Gregor was the element s true discoverer.

    Gregor may have beaten Klaproth to the new metal, but scientists preferred Klaproth s titanium to Gregor s manaccanite.

    Obtaining a sample of pure titanium proved to be much harder than discovering it.

    Many scientists tried, but it took 119 years from its discovery until 99.9% pure titanium was isolated in 1910 by metallurgist Matthew Hunter in Schenectady, New York, who heated titanium (IV) chloride with sodium to red-heat in a pressure cylinder. (2)

    In 1936, the Kroll Process (heating titanium (IV) chloride with magnesium ) made the commercial production of titanium possible. By 1948 worldwide production had reached just 3 tons a year.

    By 1956, however, scientists and engineers had realized titanium s properties were highly desirable and worldwide production had exploded to 25,000 tons a year. (3)

    The 2011 forecast for worldwide production of titanium metal using the Kroll process was 223,000 metric tons. (4)

    A blacksmith makes a knife from titanium and shows the metal s properties.

    Finely divided titanium burns easily.

    Appearance and Characteristics

    Titanium metal is considered to be non-toxic. As metal shavings, or powder, it is a considerable fire hazard. Titanium chlorides are corrosive.

    Pure titanium is a light, silvery-white, hard, lustrous metal. It has excellent strength and corrosion resistance and also has a high strength to weight ratio.

    Titanium s corrosion rate is so low that after 4000 years in seawater, corrosion would only have penetrated the metal to the thickness of a thin sheet of paper. (3)

    At high temperatures the metal burns in air and, unusually, titanium also burns in pure nitrogen.

    Titanium is ductile and is malleable when heated.

    It is insoluble in water, but soluble in concentrated acids.

    Uses of Titanium

    Titanium metal is used as an alloying agent with metals including aluminum, iron. molybdenum and manganese. Alloys of titanium are mainly used in aerospace, aircraft and engines where strong, lightweight, temperature-resistant materials are needed.

    As a result of its resistance to seawater, (see above) titanium is used for hulls of ships, propeller shafts and other structures exposed to the sea.

    Titanium is also used in joint replacement implants, such as the ball-and-socket hip joint.

    About 95% of titanium production is in the forum of titanium dioxide (titania). This intensely white pigment, with a high refractive index and strong UV light absorption, is used in white paint, food coloring, toothpaste, plastics and sunscreen.

    Titanium is used in several everyday products such as drill bits, bicycles, golf clubs, watches and laptop computers.

    Abundance and Isotopes

    Abundance earth s crust: 0.56% by weight, 0.25% by moles

    Abundance solar system: 4 parts per million by weight, 100 parts per billion by moles

    Cost, pure: $661 per 100g

    Cost, bulk: $ per 100g

    Source: Titanium is the ninth most abundant metal in the Earth s crust. Titanium is not found freely in nature but is found in minerals such as rutile (titanium oxide), ilmenite (iron titanium oxide) and sphene (titanite or calcium titanium silicate).

    Commercially, the metal is isolated using the Kroll process which initially prepares titanium oxide from the mineral ilmenite. The oxide TiO2 is then converted to the chloride ( TiCl4 ) through carbochlorination. This is condensed and purified by fractional distillation and then reduced with molten magnesium in an argon atmosphere.

    Isotopes: Titanium has 18 isotopes whose half-lives are known, with mass numbers 39 to 57. Naturally occurring titanium is a mixture of its five stable isotopes and they are found in the percentages shown: 46 Ti (8.2%), 47 Ti (7.4%), 48 Ti (73.7%), 49 Ti (5.4%) and 50 Ti (5.2%). The most naturally abundant of these isotopes is 48 Ti at 73.7%.

    Ten Tips for Buying Auto Insurance #insurance, #insurance #regulation, #states, #auto #insurance


    #

    10 Things You Should Know About Buying Auto Insurance

    1. How is Your Insurance Rate Determined?
      Two factors determine what you pay for auto insurance. The first factor is underwriting and the second factor is rating. Insurance companies underwrite to assess the risk associated with an applicant, group the applicant with other similar risks and decide if the company will accept the application. Based on the results of the underwriting process, the rating assigns a price based on what the insurer believes it will cost to assume the financial responsibility for the applicant s potential claim.

    Each company adopts its own rating system, although there are general guidelines that all companies follow.
    The single greatest influence on the rating process is claim frequency. This does not mean how many times you specifically have made an insurance claim, although that will have an additional effect. Claim frequency measures how often an insured event occurs within a group relative to the number of policies contained in that group. Persons sharing characteristics with high claims groups will be charged more for insurance coverage.

  • Specific Factors that Affect Your Rate
    • Your driving record drivers with previous violations or accidents are considered to be higher risk
    • Your geographic territory urban areas have more claims than rural areas
    • Your gender and age males have more accidents; certain age groups have more claims
    • Your marital status married people show lower rates of claims
    • Prior insurance coverage if you have been cancelled for non-payment of premiums
    • Vehicle use higher annual mileage results in higher exposure to risk
    • Make and model of your vehicle luxury and sports cars average a higher number of claims
  • Ask Your Agent About Discounts
    Discounts are awarded because the insurance company sees you as a better risk. Here are some discounts you should look for: multiple vehicles, driver education courses, good student, safety devices, anti-theft devices, low mileage, good driver/renewal, auto/home package and dividends. Not all states offer all discounts, so check with your agent to see if you qualify.
  • Tort System vs. No-Fault System
    Each state must implement either a tort system or a no-fault system. The system your state has implemented will determine what kind of insurance is available to you. The three basic coverages sold under the tort system are bodily injury liability insurance, property damage liability insurance and uninsured motorists coverage. In a no-fault state, coverages will vary, but under a no-fault system your insurance company pays you directly for your losses as a result of injuries sustained in an accident, regardless of who is at fault. Check with your state insurance department for questions concerning tort or no-fault state systems.
  • Check Into Optional Coverage
    The most commonly recognized coverages, in addition to the basic liability package, are collision and comprehensive coverages. Collision coverage pays for physical damage to your car as a result of your auto colliding with an object such as a tree or another car. This is relatively expensive coverage and is not required by law. Comprehensive coverage pays for damage to your auto from almost all other causes, including fire, severe weather, vandalism, floods and theft. This coverage will also cover broken glass and windshield damage. Comprehensive coverage is less expensive than collision, but is also optional. Other optional coverages include medical payments coverage, rental reimbursement coverage and towing and labor coverage.
  • Where to Go for More Information
    Information is available to consumers from a number of unbiased sources. These sources include public libraries, state insurance departments, online resources, consumer groups and consumer publications. Every state insurance department has personnel available to answer questions regarding auto insurance coverage and many departments publish premium comparisons to make shopping around easier.
  • Shop Around Before You Buy
    When shopping for auto insurance, premium quotations are a useful tool for comparison of different companies products. When asking for price quotations, it is crucial that you provide the same information to each agent or company. The agent will usually request the following information: description of your vehicle, its use, your driver s license number, the number of drivers in your household, the coverages and limits you want.
  • Where to Shop
    Check the newspaper and yellow pages of the telephone directory for companies and agents in your area. In addition, ask your neighbors, relatives and friends for recommendations on insurance companies and agents. In particular, ask them what kind of claim service they have received from the companies they recommend. Remember to shop around to get the best price and service.
  • For Your Protection
    Once you have selected the insurance coverages you need and an insurance agent or company, there are steps you can take to make certain you get your money s worth. Before signing an application for any insurance coverage, call you state insurance department and verify that the company and the agent are licensed to do business in your state. It is illegal for unlicensed insurers to sell insurance, and if you buy from an unlicensed insurer, you have no guarantee that the coverage you pay for will ever be honored.
  • Read Your Policy Carefully
    You should be aware that an auto insurance policy is a legal contract. It is written so your rights and responsibilities, as well as those of the insurance company, are clearly stated. When you purchase auto insurance, you will receive a policy. You should read that policy and make certain you understand its contents. If you have questions about your insurance policy, contact your insurance agent for clarification. If you still have questions, turn to your state insurance department.

    Two killed in San Jose car crash

    Sunday, December 25, 2016

    An early Christmas morning head on collision in South San Jose resulted in two fatalities, including that of a 14-year-old boy, according to police.

    Officers responded at 12:28 a.m. to a report of a major collision at Capitol Expressway and Snell Avenue, police said.

    After a preliminary investigation, officers determined a white 2012 Chevrolet Malibu being driven by a 25-year-old woman was traveling west on Capitol Expressway. For an unknown reason, the Chevy crossed into the opposite lanes of traffic, colliding head on into a silver 2004 Lexus, according to police.

    The Lexus, which was being driven by a man, was also carrying the man’s wife and their 14-year-old son.

    All four victims were taken to local hospitals, police said.

    The driver of the Lexus and his wife both suffered injuries not considered life-threatening, according to police.

    The 14-year-old boy and the 25-year-old driver were both pronounced dead a short while later. Their identities have not been released.

    Investigators believe the deceased driver of the Chevy may have been driving while under the influence of alcohol.

    The collision marks the city’s 47th fatal collision this year, police said.

    Being Pet-Friendly

    When people think pet-friendly–extremely pet-friendly–many think Europe. However, in our many years of experience, we’ve seen the US become more and more more pet-friendly, to the point where you can feel comfortable finding not only pet-friendly hotels and other lodging for your dog or cat, but also a wide array of pet-friendly services and venues–in small towns as well as large cosmopolitan areas.

    In the old days you could only find pet-friendly Bed and Breakfasts and Inns, while larger hotel chains were wary of accepting pets. That’s all changed. Now, they’ve learned that being pet-friendly is not only the right attitude–it’s also good business. That’s why you can now drive into practically any town and find a hotel, bed & breakfast, inn, cabin or cottage that is dog friendly or cat friendly, or both.

    Of course, being “pet-friendly” means different things to different lodgings. Some allow all pets and all sizes. Some have size restrictions and fees or deposits. Others might put you a smoking room. At petswelcome, we made a conscious decision to list ALL lodgings that accept pets, no matter the policy. And while $150 non-refundable “deposit” is egregious, as you move down the line, the distinctions become less offensive and harder to judge. The bottom line is that we figured it was best to simply list the pet policy and let you decide. One person’s outrage is another person’s pet paradise.

    You can use the search form above or browse through the states below to find a complete list of all pet-friendly cities in that particular state. Our lodgings also include Bed & Breakfasts, Cabins and Cottages, Inns and Motels.

    An In-Depth Look At The Fraud Charges Against Vitas Hospice Services –

    United States. An In-Depth Look At The Fraud Charges Against Vitas Hospice Services

    Earlier this month, the United States Department of Justice (пїЅDOJпїЅ) filed a suit against Vitas Hospice Services, L.L.C. and its subsidiary entities (пїЅVitasпїЅ) alleging that Vitas submitted false claims for hospice services which were excessive, unnecessary, or not provided, and also alleging that Vitas admitted patients to hospice who were not terminally ill.

    Hospice Care

    Hospice care is provided to terminally ill patients who have elected to forego curative treatment in exchange for palliative, comfort care in their own homes.пїЅ Hospice care is intended to make available the medical services necessary for a patient to be able to remain in his or her home without the need to run to the emergency room every time uncontrollable symptoms arise. Most hospice agencies derive a significant portion of their revenue from Medicare Part A for services provided to program beneficiaries, including Vitas, whose revenue is historically 90% derived from Medicare.

    In order to be eligible for hospice care, a patient must be terminally ill with a prognosis of six months or less if the patientпїЅs illness runs its normal course. Hospice care is provided at four levels of care: routine home care, continuous home care (also called crisis care), inpatient respite care, and general inpatient care, with each level of care being reimbursed at vastly different rates. Specifically, in fiscal year 2013, MedicareпїЅs daily reimbursement for continuous care was $742 more per patient than the daily reimbursement rate for routine home care. Hospice care is not intended to be an around-the-clock service but rather intermittent care provided by a range of clinical and non-clinical personnel who make visits to a patientпїЅs home several times a week.

    Continuous or пїЅCrisisпїЅ Care

    The need for crisis care arises when a patientпїЅs symptoms become uncontrollable and require nursing care on a continuous basis for a brief period of time, which could range from eight hours (the minimum amount of continuous care necessary to bill for the higher rate) to several days. The first part of the DOJпїЅs complaint focuses on allegedly inappropriate and excessive billing for continuous care services. The DOJ alleges that Vitas set quotas for the percentage of crisis care which it expected its agencies to meet.пїЅ In one instance, for example, VitasпїЅs Vice President of Operations allegedly emailed a marketing employee and general manager demanding to know why the agencyпїЅs crisis care margins had dropped in a particular month.

    The DOJпїЅs complaint alleges that Vitas conditioned its patients and their families to expect crisis care by misleading them into believing that the Medicare hospice benefit routinely covers around-the-clock care.пїЅ Because of this alleged marketing ploy, the DOJ surmises that patients sometimes chose Vitas over other providers. The complaint also alleges that Vitas disseminated written materials to its staff which incorrectly trained the staff on how and when to initiate crisis care. According to the complaint, several staff members gave investigators explanations of crisis care which were inconsistent with Medicare requirements.

    According to the complaint, many patients failed to meet the eligibility requirements for crisis care. One Vitas nurse allegedly told the DOJ that, on more than one occasion, she would arrive at a patientпїЅs home to provide crisis care, only to learn that the patient was at church, the beauty parlor, or playing bingo. According to the complaint, an internal audit conducted by Vitas itself showed that only 50% of the continuous care records reviewed contained clinical documentation consistent with the Medicare requirements for such care. According to the DOJ, when compared to other hospice providers, Vitas bills Medicare for twice as many crisis care days as all other hospice providers combined. The complaint also alleges that VitasпїЅs crisis care billings were almost six times what would be expected if its crisis care statistics were in line with the national average.

    The complaint also alleges specific instances of inappropriate use of continuous care, including treating a patientпїЅs back pain with a heating pad, performing daily dressing changes, and continuing to provide continuous care for patients whose acute symptoms had been treated and stabilized. According to the complaint, in one unfortunate incident, a Vitas nurse allegedly failed to recognize that a patient was suffering from opioid neurotoxicity and continued to administer higher levels of morphine to the patient, which only increased her pain and led to seizures. The complaint goes on to allege that Vitas then billed Medicare for 16 days of crisis care for the patient, whose critical condition was created by Vitas itself. On another occasion, Vitas allegedly offered crisis care to another patient simply because the patient was considering aggressive curative therapy instead of continuing hospice care.

    Inappropriate Admissions

    The second part of the DOJпїЅs complaint focuses on inappropriately admitting patients to hospice when such patients did not meet the Medicare criteria for hospice eligibility. The complaint alleges that VitasпїЅs corporate culture promoted increasing its agenciesпїЅ censuses without regard to whether services were actually necessary. Vitas allegedly paid bonuses to its non-clinical staff based on the number of patients enrolled in the program, and Vitas took adverse employment actions against marketers who failed to meet monthly admission goals. According to the complaint, one former manager told investigators that his bonuses were based on the number of patient admissions and the length of time that he could get a patient to stay on hospice services.

    The DOJ further alleges that VitasпїЅs medical staff reported that they felt pressured by Vitas to admit or readmit patients who were inappropriate for hospice services. The complaint details an alleged incident in which one former Vitas admissions nurse said that if he did not admit a patient whom he found to be ineligible, he would be pressured to reconsider his decision until he finally determined that the patient was eligible. Another Vitas nurse purportedly stated that, at weekly meetings, discharging more than four patients per meeting was frowned upon by business managers, and medical staff were told to stop discharging patients even if patients were not eligible for hospice care. The same nurse also allegedly reported to investigators that Vitas instructed her to falsely write in the medical record that a patient experienced symptoms which he did not actually experience and further instructed her not to write in the medical records that a patientпїЅs health was improving.

    According to the complaint, several Vitas physicians reported being under pressure from management to increase the number of patients admitted to hospice care and were oftenпїЅ overruled when they did not believe that patients were eligible for hospice or when they determined that patients should be discharged because they were not dying. The complaint includes a detailed description of several instances when, according to the DOJ, the medical record clearly did not support the need for hospice care.

    Damages Sought by DOJ

    Based on all of its allegations, the DOJ charges Vitas with knowingly presenting or causing to be presented false or fraudulent claims to Medicare in violation of the False Claims Act and seeks unspecified damages, which would be trebled as required by law. Finally, the DOJ also includes as causes of action payment by mistake and unjust enrichment.

    Lessons for Providers

    The allegations against Vitas are of course just that пїЅ merely allegations. But if proven to be true, some of VitasпїЅs practicesпїЅ are obviously flawed: donпїЅt instruct staff to falsify medical records; donпїЅt provide a higher level of service than is necessary; donпїЅt base discharges on non-clinical reasons. Some of VitasпїЅs alleged business practices, however, are not obviously problematic. From a business standpoint, what more accurate way is there to measure a marketerпїЅs performance than by looking at the number of admissions which she generates? What would be completely benign business practices in any other profession could subject someone to great civil and criminal liability in the healthcare arena.

    Hospice providers are encouraged to use the DOJпїЅs complaint as a learning tool for understanding what types of issues and business practices are likely to attract the attention of investigators (and whistleblowers). Understanding the issues and potentially problematic business practices up front should enable providers to design compliance policies and procedures that will help them avoid some of the pitfalls that have befallen Vitas.

    Bethany Arms Motel Apartments

    The biggest draw back was the not so private balcony. The night auditor told me it was private. You step out the door and you can pretty much see the people on the adjacent balcony. If a family rented a floor, fine. But I really wanted to leave the door and sleep with the sound of the ocean. Can t do that because over this railing between balconies, someone could get in my room. The couch by the door folds into a bed. I pulled it out and found some strange debris. I could just leave the door open and hope no one is tempted to come in. Smh.

    It s late. Spontaneous drive through Delaware has shown me, I m afraid, what there is to see here. Rehoboth was a mad house. Traffic was horrendous. Reminder: it s after Labor Day. Dewey Beach was packed. Kept on driving and found this place. While I may have found a cot on the boardwalk in Rehoboth for 3 or 400 hundred dollars, I like a quieter place.

    Found it here. Hotel offers a lot. The room is big. Has a full size fridge and stove, but I can t forget that clear unlabeled bottle of blue goo by the sink. Common sense tells me it s dish detergent. If there isn t soap in the bathroom, why is there soap by the kitchen sink?

    I m really not a nit picker. I ve stayed all over the east coast in everything from large upscale chains to small family owned hotels, even old ones like this.

    Not impressed for $230 a night.

    Could climb right over and be in their private balcony too

    Stop following Kial S.

    Bethany Arms is a quaint, very old, motel. It doesn t have a bunch of special amenities or anything but it serves its purpose just fine.

    It s got a great view of the beach if you re on the second floor of building D and it s right next to the boardwalk so you can walk right across to the beach.

    They get three stars because it meets expectations and the people were very nice.

    Was this review ?

    This is an old motel that looks straight from the 70 s, but it is clean and is in a great location. You re right on beach and only half a block (like a 10 second walk) to all the restaurants and shops in Bethany beach. Since it s an old motel, their pricing is lower than anywhere around. I stayed there May 31-June 2 and the place was maybe 20% full, yet every day there was a whole crew of about a dozen people going through every room to clean. If you want the ritz, this isn t it. But if you want a room in a great location with the basic amenities (mini fridge, parking, AC, clean bathroom and beds) then this is your place.

    Was this review ?

    If you want to stay in Bethany Beach, then the location is 4 or 5 stars.

    There are 5 separate buildings in the complex. This is the first time we ve stayed here, so we ve only experienced one room in one building. Our premium suite was very dated and a bit decrepit. Like it might have been all that 50 years ago, but now the fixtures are rusted, tile and paint faded, furniture sagging. and it smelled like 50 years worth of accumulated must when we walked in. We did have a kitchenette, but it was sparse (fine for storing beer and sandwich fixings – but no microwave for your oatmeal, and you wouldn t want to cook an actual meal in it). We weren t expecting much. and it just about met our expectations.

    On the plus side, the staff was helpful, and extended our checkout time with no issue (since the room was not booked until a day later). Also, the other buildings may be nicer or more current, I just don t know. At the end of the day, we enjoyed ourselves, and the place wasn t awful – just on the low side of average. We might stay again sometime.

    Was this review ?

    This place is stuck in the 1970 s yet the prices are 2011. It seemed clean and all but it had an old, moldy smell in rooms. With the prices that this place is charging I would expect them to update their rooms. Staff is extremely careless over the phone and in person. Only when I was checking out a nice lady said thank you, other guy was mentally in some other place. Maybe because there are no other competition around the area this place thinks they can get away. Well Hilton might be just around the corner building a small hotel with better prices, I would start worrying.

    Was this review ?

    As I was searching for a hotel for my two night stay in Bethany, the Bethany Arms Motel was one of the lower priced options. It s a great location, right on the boardwalk. There are several different buildings which are each a different price depending on the view, the size, and if they offer a kitchenette. I went for the cheapest option and the room was simple but had everything we needed (fridge, microwave, etc). They also had an outdoor shower so you didn t have to fight the crowds for the ones on the boardwalk. The front desk was friendly and helpful.

    Gramercy Park Hotel

    The hotel at a glance

    For our New York vacation, we we were looking for a hotel in midtown Manhattan, a location perfect for shopping and visiting NYC. We finally selected the Gramercy Park Hotel.

    It was very different from other hotels in New York. We were enchanted by the hotel decor designed by Ian Schrager in an artfully revisited bohemian style. His artistic sensuality literally carried us away. We admired the skillful blend of furniture styles and the clever choice of works of art enhanced by a Renaissance color palette inspired by the famous Raphael. We unreservedly liked this concept of modern luxury, the beautiful rugs, the heavy bright pink velvet curtains framing the mahogany windows. We were totally mesmerized by the beauty of the place and amazed by the designer’s talent and creativity. But the best was yet to come.

    In the morning we took an ‘à la carte’ breakfast in the Gramercy terrace, a wonderful environment with its lush vegetation. The service was fast and friendly. In this landscaped indoor garden, we immediately forgot that we were in the heart of New York City, especially when the sun gratified us with its warm presence.

    We also loved to spend time at the Rose Bar and Jade Bar with their most original atmosphere. Located on the 16th floor of the hotel, it is a private lounge-type area where we could sit leisurely surrounded by masterworks of renowned 20-century artists and where we thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere as well as the the well-chosen music and chatted with other guests before returning to the tranquility of our room.

    Our stay at the Gramercy Park was really fabulous and even better than we had hoped for. I absolutely recommend this original and luxurious hotel, the perfect choice for anyone who hates getting bored.
