Ever since the earliest days of Healthy Exchanges, I’ve gotten letters
(and later, e-mail) from my readers asking about cooking for one or two instead of four or six (as most of my soups, salads, and main dishes served) as well as desserts that served fewer than eight (as my pies and cheesecakes usually do).
They wrote, “My refrigerator is too small for all those leftovers,”
or “You wouldn’t believe how tiny my freezer is. There’s room for two ice cube trays and a few boxes of frozen vegetables, and that’s it.”...
Premium and cost sharing subsidies will be available
through the Exchange for individuals with incomes up
to 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL)4 who
do not qualify for Medi-Cal and do not have any family
members with an offer of affordable job-based coverage.
5 A separate Small Business Health Options Plan
(SHOP) exchange will offer coverage to firms of 50 or
fewer workers between 2014 and 2016, after which
time it will be open to firms of 100 or fewer workers.
Small businesses with low-wage workforces may be
eligible for tax credits through the SHOP exchange.
The goal of the Child Health program is “to enable all children to attain and sustain optimal health and develop-
mental potential.” (1) Achievement of this goal involves a complex interplay of internal and external factors for
families and their children. Accordingly, the Child Health Program Standard is structured around six key areas:
positive parenting; breastfeeding; healthy family dynamics; healthy eating, healthy weights and physical activity;
growth and development; and oral health.
This report therefore proposes a regulatory system
based on the principle that individuals and
organisations must not act in a way where the
purpose or effect is to promote an unhealthy food
product to individuals under the age of 16. This
should be a statutory system enshrined in law, not
a voluntary industry code. The proposed law
prohibits all marketing whose purpose or effect is
to promote unhealthy food to children.
the MEPS-HC respondents are then assumed to represent
the population of California. However, MEPS-HC
does not include data on immigration status, and until
2007 did not report whether an individual was born in
the United States. We therefore constructed a regression
model using CHIS 2009 confidential data to predict
the immigration status of MEPS-HC respondents
based on a variety of socioeconomic, demographic,
and family characteristics.
This supplement is based on papers presented at the
Second International Conference of the Faculty of Dentistry,
Kuwait University, October 2–4, 2001. The conference
provided an ideal opportunity to exchange ideas and
discuss new developments in the field of dentistry, especially
the latest trends in the evidence-based approach to
dental care. As the former President of Kuwait University,

While insurance Exchanges have the potential
to transform the health insurance market for
consumers, many large employers anticipate health
benei ts will remain a core component of the value
proposition for active employees beyond 2014. As
Figure 11 shows, 90% of companies indicate that
will be the case in 2014 and beyond — virtually
unchanged from 2012.
It is a moral responsibility for us to help children live healthy, happy, conﬁ dent, secure and productive lives. By
becoming a signatory to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, (4) Canada has enshrined
this moral responsibility as a legal obligation of our government, for which we agree to be held accountable
before the international community.
The health and well-being of our children is an investment in our Province for generations to come.
Agencies must establish policies and procedures to ensure that electronic records and their documentation are retained and accessible as long as needed. Agencies are required to include electronic records management objectives, responsibilities, and authorities in pertinent agency directives, or rules, as applicable.5 Agencies can begin to manage their electronic records by incorporating electronic records into any general agency records management policies they may have in place.
We predict that in 2019, Medi-Cal coverage will
increase by 1.2 to 1.6 million (under the base and
enhanced scenarios, respectively). Enrollment in
Healthy Families will decline slightly as older children
under 133 percent FPL will now qualify for Medi-Cal.
An estimated 1.8 to 2.1 million will be enrolled in the
Exchange with subsidies, while 2.1 to 2.2 million will
remain in the non-group market or be enrolled in the
Exchange without subsidies.11 Finally, the number of
uninsured will decline by 1.8 to 2.7 million people,
leaving 3.0 to 4.0 million Californians without coverage.
An estimated 3 to 4 million Californians are predicted
to remain uninsured in 2019. Of those, slightly more
than 1 million will not be eligible for coverage options
under the ACA due to immigration status. Another
800,000 to 1.2 million will be eligible for Medi-Cal or
Healthy Families. If and when they seek care, they will
have the ability to enroll in coverage. Robust outreach
and education can also decrease the number of uninsured
who are not aware of coverage opportunities and
are therefore less likely to seek care or receive preventive
Antibacterial peptides were isolated fromhuman peripheral
granulocytes of a healthy donor who had been treated with
granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) and cortisol.
Peptides were solubilized in acidi®ed chloroform/methanol,
and partitioned in chloroform/methanol/water. Water-soluble polypeptides were separated by cation-exchange and
reversed-phase chromatography. Several previously char-acterized antibacterial polypeptides were identi®ed; defen-sins 1±3, defensin 4, lysozyme, eosinophil cationic protein,
and calgranulin A. ...
