The latest brush with celebrity happened 3 p.m. on Wednesday.

Things were busy as usual at the B&B when through the crowd of familiar faces Joe Brooks noticed an unfamiliar pair of people.

"I asked the girl, 'Where are you from?' She goes, 'New York.' I go, 'But I know who that is.' She goes, 'Yeah, he's with you,'" said Brooks. "He wore a paper hat and everything.""

Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most by Obamacare (3830033) writes | yesterday

0 (3830033) writes "We know that about 10 million more people have insurance coverage this year as a result of the Affordable Care Act but until now it has been difficult to say much about who was getting that Obamacare coverage — where they live, their age, their income and other such details. Now Kevin Quealy and Margot Sanger-Katz report in the NYT that a new data set is providing a clearer picture of which people gained health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. The data is the output of a statistical model based on a large survey of adults and shows that the law has done something rather unusual in the American economy this century: It has pushed back against inequality, essentially redistributing income — in the form of health insurance or insurance subsidies — to many of the groups that have fared poorly over the last few decades. The biggest winners from the law include people between the ages of 18 and 34; blacks; Hispanics; and people who live in rural areas. The areas with the largest increases in the health insurance rate, for example, include rural Arkansas and Nevada; southern Texas; large swaths of New Mexico, Kentucky and West Virginia; and much of inland California and Oregon.

Despite many Republican voters’ disdain for the Affordable Care Act, parts of the country that lean the most heavily Republican (according to 2012 presidential election results) showed significantly more insurance gains than places where voters lean strongly Democratic. That partly reflects underlying rates of insurance. In liberal places, like Massachusetts and Hawaii, previous state policies had made insurance coverage much more widespread, leaving less room for improvement. But the correlation also reflects trends in wealth and poverty. Many of the poorest and most rural states in the country tend to favor Republican politicians."

XL Axiata Files Shock Loss After Rising Costs

h3nryauc (3896419) writes | 48 minutes ago


h3nryauc (3896419) writes "Jakarta. XL Axiata, Indonesia’s second-largest mobile phone operator by users, posted a Rp 901.2 billion ($74.5 million) loss in the first nine-month of this year, a huge swing from the Rp 917 billion in profit in the same period last year, the company said in a filing to the Indonesian stock exchange.

XL, majority owned by Malaysian telecommunication company Axiata Group, posted a 10.9 percent increase in its revenue in the period, but it wasn’t enough to offset the drag of its rising costs.

XL’s infrastructure expenses increased 43.5 percent to Rp 6.3 trillion.

This has put pressure on XL’s operating profit, which declined by 89.5 percent to Rp 138.13 billion.

XL’s net foreign exchange loss has also increased to Rp 935.5 billion up from Rp 714.6 billion.

The company has made efforts to reduce expenses and lower its maintenance costs, including selling telecommunication towers, to enable it to focus on its mobile telecommunication businesses.

The company has signed an asset purchase agreement to sell 3,500 communication towers to Solusi Tunas Pratama, a telecommunication infrastructure company in a Rp 5.6 trillion deal.

According to the agreement, the sale is expected to be finalized at the end of the year and Solusi Tunas Pratama will pay off the transaction entirely in cash.

XL will be left with a remaining 6,500 towers after the sale.

XL Axiata has previously said that it was planning to use funds from the tower sale to refinance its $865 million debt that it used to acquire a stake in smaller mobile phone operator Axis Telekom Indonesia in March.
