DC files antitrust case vs Amazon over treatment of vendors | National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The District of Columbia has sued Amazon, accusing the online retail giant of anticompetitive practices in its treatment of sellers on its platform. The practices have raised prices for consumers and stifled innovation and choice in the online retail market, the DC attorney general alleges in an antitrust suit.

The suit filed Tuesday in the District of Columbia court maintains that Amazon has fixed online retail prices through contract provisions and policies it applies to third-party sellers. It alleges these provisions and policies prevent sellers that offer products on Amazon.com from offering their products at lower prices or on better terms on any other online platform, including their own websites.

“We filed this antitrust lawsuit to put an end to Amazon’s illegal control of prices across the online retail market,” DC Attorney General Karl Racine said in a conference call with reporters. “We need a fair online

Is an employer permitted to ask for a doctor’s note when an employee has a health-related absence?

This  depends on the circumstances that prompt the request and the employer’s policies governing such requests.

Sick Leave. Maybe. An employer may generally request a doctor’s note as part of its sick leave or attendance policy. However, such a practice must be uniformly applied. The required note should not seek a diagnosis/medical condition; rather, the note should verify that the employee was seen by the health care provider and stipulate any period of incapacity or job-related restrictions. Requesting more information could run afoul of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In addition, federal contractors required by contract to provide paid sick leave may require a doctor’s note/certification only for absences of three or more consecutive full days, and the employer must notify the employee of the requirement to provide a doctor’s note/certification before the employee returns to work. Employers must also be familiar with any restrictions under state and

What is framework? – Definition from WhatIs.com

In general, a framework is a real or conceptual structure intended to serve as a support or guide for the building of something that expands the structure into something useful.

In computer systems, a framework is often a layered structure indicating what kind of programs can or should be built and how they would interrelate. Some computer system frameworks also include actual programs, specify programming interfaces, or offer programming tools for using the frameworks. A framework may be for a set of functions within a system and how they interrelate; the layers of an operating system; the layers of an application subsystem; how communication should be standardized at some level of a network; and so forth. A framework is generally more comprehensive than a protocol and more prescriptive than a structure.

Examples of frameworks that are currently used or offered by standards bodies or companies include:

Japan funding, Navy building $45 million medical-dental clinic for Marines on Guam | Tribune

May 11—The Navy has awarded a $45 million contract to build a medical and dental clinic at a new Marine Corps base on Guam.

A joint venture between Guam’s Core Tech, the Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company and Japan’s Kaijima Corp. will build the facility at Camp Blaz, according to a Monday statement from Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific.

The clinic will include pharmacy, physical therapy, radiology, laboratory, logistics, optometry, occupational health and dental departments, the statement said.

Blaz, near Andersen Air Force Base, is being built to accommodate the move of 5,000 members of the III Marine Expeditionary Force off Okinawa over the next five years.

The camp was commissioned in September as the first new Marine installation since Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany opened in Georgia on March 1, 1952.

The new clinic being funded by the Japanese government, according to the Navy statement. Japan is paying for $3

TREATMENT

For Clinicians: Pertussis Treatment | CDC

  • Treat appropriately for pertussis. Because pertussis may progress rapidly in young infants, treat suspected and confirmed cases promptly. However, treatment is ineffective if started late in the course of illness.
  • Quickly report cases of pertussis to the local public health department to assist with preventing additional cases.

Timing

Early treatment of pertussis is very important. The earlier a person, especially an infant, starts treatment the better. If a patient starts treatment for pertussis early in the course of illness, during the first 1 to 2 weeks before coughing paroxysms occur, symptoms may be lessened.

Clinicians should strongly consider treating prior to test results if clinical history is strongly suggestive or patient is at risk for severe or complicated disease (e.g., infants). If a clinician diagnoses the patient late, antibiotics will not alter the course of the illness. Even without antibiotics, those patients should no longer be spreading pertussis.

Treatment for Overweight & Obesity

In this section:

Common treatments for overweight and obesity include losing weight through healthy eating, being more physically active, and making other changes to your usual habits. Weight-management programs may help some people lose weight or keep from regaining lost weight. Some people who have obesity are unable to lose enough weight to improve their health or are unable to keep from regaining weight. In such cases, a doctor may consider adding other treatments, including weight-loss medicines, weight-loss devices, or bariatric surgery.

Experts recommend losing 5 to 10 percent of your body weight within the first 6 months of treatment. [10] If you weigh 200 pounds, this means losing as little as 10 pounds. Losing 5 to 10 percent of your weight may
