first_imgCelebrity stylist Ali Mandelkorn goes thrifting for a cause This image released by Thrilling shows a floral tank top by Balenciaga, part of a collection offered on the e-commerce site Celebrity stylist Ali Mandelkorn has teamed with Goodwill of Southern California on a collection of thrift pulls to benefit employment programs for the disabled and disadvantaged. The collection went on sale Friday at Thrilling, an online platform for vintage and thrift stores around the U.S. ( AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Leanne Italie, The Associated Press Posted Mar 15, 2019 2:15 pm PDT NEW YORK — As a celebrity stylist, Ali Mandelkorn is usually surrounded by designer duds, so getting back to some of her favourite fashion vibes, vintage and thrift, was a treat.She went deep into the racks of a Goodwill store in Los Angeles for a collection released Friday on Thrilling that will benefit employment programs for the disabled and disadvantaged run by the non-profit’s Southern California operation.“I love clothes and I just feel like vintage shopping has always been a part of my vernacular,” said Mandelkorn, who has been working with red carpet standout Janelle Monae for more than a year. “Part of the fun is going on the hunt and uncovering gems.”Among her favourite pieces in the collection is a Balenciaga tank top in a brown and white floral peplum design, priced at $115. The gems she unearthed in a Goodwill store in LA’s Los Feliz neighbourhood include some oversize blazers from the 1980s and a pair of Chanel ankle-strap flats in black — selling for $199.Thrilling, an online platform for vintage and thrift stores around the United States, calls the collection GOODxGoodwill SoCal and has included pieces donated as well as those hunted down by Mandelkorn. Donors include Mel B, Tatyana Ali, Loni Love, Sara Haines and Carole Radziwill.While some of the collection’s pieces are priced in the low range, including a Tom & Jerry checkered bomber jacket for $30, others are going for up to $299 (a Prada oversized windbreaker in black). Looking for a Louise Vuitton key holder? There’s one in blue and white checks for $150.When Mandelkorn has the time, and she’s shopping for herself, she remains drawn to vintage and thrift. But she doesn’t have a magic formula for finding the really good stuff, which is plentiful in Los Angeles, where she lives.“I love to find pieces with real stories,” said the Boston native.It’s not so much about the labels for Mandelkorn. It’s about individual pieces that speak to her. That, she said, is a very personal thing.The collection was already selling out on it first day. Being thrift, once it’s gone, it’s gone, Mandelkorn noted.And that, she said, “is what’s so great about thrift.”Leanne Italie, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Banks oppose interest rate regulation


first_imgBy George PsyllidesBANKS HAVE disagreed with a government bill regulating charges and interest rates arguing it will hinder the implementation of the foreclosures procedure.“Its provisions can be exploited by people who refuse to co-operate,” bank association representative Demetra Plati told MPs at the House finance committee on Thursday.The government’s intention, according to the finance minister, is to regulate the fluctuation of interest rates from now on.“The intention is to set the lending rate from now on. With the approval of the bill, banks will not be able to raise the rates unilaterally,” he told the committee, meeting to discuss the foreclosure legislation.However, the minister added, it was not illegal if a bank charges 3.0 per cent in late payment interest last year. If that rate was unreasonable though – 10 per cent – then borrowers have the right to go to court.The bill puts a 2.0 per cent cap on late payment interest.The bank association however, disagreed with the bill in its entirety because saying it would have negative effects on the banks while the benefits for borrowers were doubtful.Plati said if the banks cannot raise the rate they would probably set one as high as possible from the onset in a bid to cover any future risks.Banks also disagreed with sending borrowers separate letters each time the basic rate changed, saying that could be done through the monthly statements.The late interest cap was also a sticking point as sometimes the cost for the bank could be over 2.0 per cent.Banks also disagreed with provisions precluding them from including a right to raise rates during the course of the contract, saying this could be unconstitutional.Attorney-general Costas Clerides said that the bill did not include provisions for banks to return excessive charges accepted and paid by customers in the past. And it was not yet clear if the interest, which has been charged but not yet paid, would be written off, Clerides said.The attorney-general said it would not be easy to make the bill retroactive without first carrying out an impact study.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

games For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top NewsPublished: November 5 2014 12:48 am Clearly poverty exacerbates disease particularly those like TB Related News By Nalini Krishnan and Chapal Mehra An oft-repeated fact about healthcare services provided by the public sector in India is that they are “free” This leads to the belief that free diagnosis and treatment eventually mean little or no spending on health by the poor and consequently this drastically reduces health-related expenses for them Hence many policymakers argue that to improve the health of the poor the focus should be on strengthening and broadening services in the public sector In reality however this is not the complete truth For the poor accessing free care comes at a significant cost To access care in the public sector the quality of which is often inconsistent the poor not only have to incur costs but also suffer a loss in income The cost of waiting at a public health facility that does not have operating hours convenient to working patients is the loss of that day’s wage In addition a large population waiting to access free care ensures long waiting times causing missed work days and consequent loss in income The alternative is to access the private sector It is well known that the poor incur considerable costs towards outpatient care deepening the burden in case of chronic illnesses and pushing households below the poverty line Health-seeking behaviour skewed towards the private sector is born of necessity rather than choice as patients need to access the most convenient point of care which invariably is not the “free services’’ offered by the public healthcare system Take the case of an infectious disease like tuberculosis (TB) After a patient is diagnosed in the public sector where services are ostensibly free the patient often needs to travel to access treatment The need to access treatment regularly is critical otherwise it can lead to a worsening of the disease or worse drug resistance and a more dangerous form of TB For this patients must incur transportation costs and several other expenses such as costs to treat side effects and other ancillary tests and procedures not accessible at the level of primary care The regimen to be followed for six months often demands rest hence employment must wait Patients also require appropriate nutrition Therefore expenses on food increase and others within the household must give up either their share of food or add to the household costs A recent study in Peru — “Catastrophic costs and comparing their importance for adverse tuberculosis outcome with multi-drug resistance: a prospective cohort study Peru” by Tom Wingfield et al (PLOS Medicine July 15) — has illustrated the hidden costs of free care in the case of TB This study has significant implications for high-burden countries like India where the poorest bear the inordinate burden of this disease It shows that despite TB care being free contracting TB was itself expensive for impoverished patients The study shows that the poor have to spend a great deal to access free care This includes “out of pocket” expenses such as the cost of transportation symptom-relieving medicines or additional food or indirect expenses associated with lost income TB principally affects the most economically productive age group and this directly impacts household income with a debilitating impact on the poorest Further it also shows that patient and household income decreases post-diagnosis and may not return to pre-diagnosis levels that is the disease makes you poorer in both the short and long terms At the broader level it shows that catastrophic health costs may increase TB and MDR-TB transmission especially in poorer households This is an alarming fact for countries like India where one poor TB patient’s disease can not only impoverish an entire family but also increase transmission Thus the result is not just catastrophic health costs but also weakened disease control These findings have enormous implications for India Clearly poverty exacerbates disease particularly those like TB But disease further pushes households into poverty This can put families in financial shock reducing consumption to below minimum needs leading to selling of assets and often taking children out of school This can also lead to increased stigmatisation and of course long-term poverty Policymakers often do not understand that disease is not just a physiologically but also psychologically economically and socially debilitating state They do not sufficiently see the link between losses in income due to disease and consequently long-term poverty or debt traps What can they possibly do They are after all only charged with policymaking in a single domain The recent action by the Union health minister to engage other ministries on tobacco control etc provides some direction and could indicate that the ministry would be adopting a multi-dimensional approach to provide solutions to critical public health issues confronting India’s poor The health minister attended the World Lung Conference in Barcelona last week and stressed community-driven solutions for TB in his address to international health experts as part of the WHO symposium on TB It is hoped that health and human development agendas would finally come together to ensure that those affected by disease are not just cured but also not impoverished leaving them their families and communities vulnerable to further disease There is little disagreement that poor households especially those exposed to debilitating diseases such as TB need social protection to avoid catastrophic costs and hence extreme poverty and consequently further disease However we need to study these trends and facts carefully to design suitable and appropriate social protection programmes that will work for the poor The use of technology such as mobile banking may provide some support This however is easier said than done with limited funding for social protection programmes This government like any other is faced with a difficult if not insurmountable situation in health Yet an engaged health ministry may be able to generate partnerships that can facilitate health policy formation and programme design that will ensure better access to services and increased social protection Perhaps the most fundamental thing to realise is that the poor bear the inordinate burden of disease and until we substantially address the social determinants of disease the poor will always be vulnerable and free healthcare services will not save them from either disease or extreme poverty Krishnan is director
