Florida is a target-rich environment for psychiatrists and corporations that are looking to squeeze profits from filled beds.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year hundreds of thousands of people are taken into custody for involuntary psychiatric examination across the state of Florida. Called a Baker Act, the rampant abuse of rights under this law contributes to tens of millions of dollars in fraudulent billing. In a new documentary in “The Voices for Humanity” series on the Scientology TV network, attorney Justin Drach takes on the widespread illegal involuntary examination of men, women and children in Florida. Working directly with the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Justin Drach, a former Navy pilot, flies all over Florida seeking the safe release of countless individuals being held unjustly under the Baker Act.

“Today, in Florida, one of the greatest evils is fraudulent Baker Acts,” Drach states. “I make no bones about it, there is an epidemic of greed and abuse in medicine, especially the treatment of mental illness.”

Drach spent 10 years as a Naval aviator, including a tour of duty in Iraq. After military service, he earned his law degree and along with Amanda Thoele quickly established a prominent practice in Florida. His expertise—battling involuntary examination and potential involuntary commitment carried out by the psychiatric industry under the state’s infamous Baker Act. A strategic alliance with CCHR, a watchdog organization that exposes abuse in the mental health industry, has thrust Justin to the forefront of a movement fighting Baker Act violations. Through the specialized Baker Act Defense Attorney Symposium and Summit, known by the acronym BADASS, Drach helps to educate other attorneys in the art of securing freedom for Baker Act victims.

In support of Mr. Drach’s work, CCHR hosted an event on Wednesday 13 November at the historic Fort Harrison for the premiere of the documentary, “Wings of Justice” where the audience was appalled to learn of the horrific abuses perpetrated under the Baker Act and inspired to take action to help restore human rights.

According to Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida, Florida is a target-rich environment for psychiatrists and corporations that are looking to squeeze profits from filled beds.

“Florida’s mental health act is weak and due process is virtually non-existent, said Stein. “Patients are bullied into submitting to ‘voluntary’ treatment all to avoid the bare minimum scrutiny of courts making people like Mr. Drach invaluable in the fight to end mental health human rights abuse in Florida.”

Ms. Stein, who is also featured on the Voices for Humanity series for her work in exposing unjust involuntary psychiatric examination of children and other mental health human rights abuses, encourages the friends and family of anyone who has suffered abuse in the mental health industry to submit a report at CCHR – www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Inmedix to present at the Keiretsu Forum Bay Area Investor Capital Expo on November 21, 2019.

Andrew J. Holman, MD, Inmedix CEO & Co-founder, to highlight immuno-autonomic diagnostics.

NORMANDY PARK, WA, USA, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inmedix, the leader in next-generation heart rate variability (HRV) applications as an informative diagnostic tool in autoimmune disease, today announced that CEO & Co-founder, Andrew J. Holman, MD, will showcase Inmedix at the Investor Capital Expo in San Francisco.

The Keiretsu Forum is the world’s largest angel investor network with over 3000 accredited angel investors throughout 53 chapters spanning 4 continents. Membership includes angel investors, venture capitalists, corporate/institutional investors and serial entrepreneurs that provide early stage seed capital to high-quality, diverse investment opportunities.

The Investor Capital Expo, the premier gathering of the angel capital community, will be held at Julia Morgan Ballroom, 465 California St., San Francisco, CA from 8 am to 5 pm on November 21, 2019. More information can be found at www.Keiretsuforum.com.

Immuno-autonomics is the interface between stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and the immune system. In autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks healthy tissues for reasons which remain unclear. Therapy is directed with various immunosuppressive strategies to reduce this inappropriate attack and potential destruction of joints, skin, kidney, brain, etc. (depending on the specific autoimmune disease.)
Fundamentally, ANS stress can drive an autoimmune disease to untreatable excess. Understanding how the immune system is modulated by ANS stress in the brain may offer an important new pathway for patients and clinicians combating these diseases.

“Keiretsu Forum has been a leader in nurturing emerging medtech and biotech companies for many years,” says Andrew J. Holman, MD, rheumatologist and Inmedix CEO. “As an investment member of the Keiretsu Forum Pacific Northwest Chapter as well as Inmedix CEO, I am particularly proud to have an opportunity to showcase our innovation to Bay Area investors at this signature event.”

ACA REPEAL WOULD DEVASTATE JOBS NUMBERS, NEGATING TRUMP BIGGEST TALKING POINT: Robert Weiner &August Clarke–AZ Republic

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ACA Biggest Job Creator of last decade according to BLS; 20 million new recipients and 100 million+ with more benefits all causing millions of new jobs. Op-ed In Arizona Republic, article ranked #1 in country by OpEdNews

Robert Weiner, a former Clinton and Bush White House spokesman and Chief of Staff of the House Aging Committee and its Health Subcommittee, and Zach Filtz, senior policy analyst for Robert Weiner Associates and Solutions for Change, just published an op-ed in the Arizona Republic Trump will lose the “jobs and economy growth" talking point if successful at killing Obamacare, as the ACA is the #1 jobs creator because of services to 30 million new recipients and more than 100 million with benefits, according to BLS. In addition, the Arizona Senate seat is a very important one, especially in light of late Sen. John McCain’s ACA-saving role, saving the “skinny repeal” with his dramatic “thumbs down.” The oped was ranked H1– #1 in the country– by OpEdNews.

Weiner and Filtz begin, “If Trump kills or diminishes the ACA, as he's trying to do, he'll lose his best talking point, national jobs growth. Despite ACA opponents' claims of "job killing" by the bill, the facts show that the 30 million new recipients and expanded benefits for 100+ million have generated exactly the opposite, big jobs increases — and that's just common sense.”

They profess, “With repeal, In Arizona, 160,456 citizens would drop off of the Marketplace health plan they are on. Arizona’s employment rate would drop by 1.6%, and 41,982 Arizona jobs would be lost alone, according to the Economic Policy Institute. Nationally, 1,175,524 people would lose their jobs if the ACA were voided.”

They reinforce, “For everyone and especially Arizonans, an important item at stake for ACA’s future is the 2020 special election for Senate seat that Republican Martha McSally currently occupies. That seat was once held by John McCain, who gave his party-defying “thumbs down” to repealing and replacing the ACA on July 28, 2017. That seat now sees Martha McSally running against Democrat Mark Kelly.”

They contend, “Kelly’s website speaks of supporting the existing ACA while introducing a public health option for all Arizonans.”

They assert, “But McSally has a nuanced position on the ACA. A campaign ad says she is "leading the fight to cover pre-existing conditions." She has indeed offered helpful amendments to Republican-led replacement bills that moved the ball on their pre-existing conditions language. But as a House member in 2015 and 2017, she voted to repeal and replace the ACA with a "skinny repeal." According to PolitiFact Arizona, the Republican “skinny repeal” bills “raised premiums.” Because McSally ultimately voted with her party, PolitiFact rated her claim ‘mostly false.’”

They continue, “Kelly, on the other hand, speaks about ending threats keeping coverage for the 400,000 Arizonans receiving insurance through Medicaid expansion.”

They emphasize, “Every state plus D.C. would see job losses if the ACA were repealed. Thirty states would see increases of statewide unemployment rates of around 1%. The states that would be hit the hardest, with effects of up to 4%, are Montana, Rhode Island, Oregon, New Jersey, West Virginia, Kentucky, Arizona, and New Mexico.”

They declare, “The 30 million new health insurance recipients, plus 100 million covered people with pre-existing conditions, have created the new jobs and are a reason the U.S. now has a 50-year-low 3.5% unemployment rate. Incidentally, the national unemployment rate for all workers at the height of the recession in March 2010, as the ACA became law, was 9.7%.”

They proclaim, “The Bureau of Labor Statistics national unemployment rate for the health care services industry is just 2.4%. In 2010, it was more than double that, 5%."

They assert, “In March 2017, Goldman Sachs found that a “substantial decline in insurance coverage would also likely be associated with a drag on health care employment and consumption.” In other words, the fewer insured there are, the fewer workers have jobs. The BLS calculated that there were 16,793,100 health care employees in March 2010, the month that President Obama signed the ACA. As of Sept. 2019, there are 20,576,200 health employees.”

They profess, “A decade ago, there were 2.4 million more workers in retail than health care. In 2017, health care surpassed both retail and manufacturing, according to the BLS. There will be 3.4 million more health care services jobs by 2028. Health care services has grown to be the largest sector of the U.S. labor force.”

They elaborate, “Arizona is among twenty states with GOP-controlled governors or attorneys general. A Texas ruling, Texas v. United States, with support from the Republican Party, is headed for the Supreme Court via the Fifth Court of Appeals. This ruling would cancel the coverage for all who receive benefits from it, as would seriously jeopardize all of the jobs that have been created by it.”

They conclude, “President Trump markets his presidency as a catalyst for job generation, but if the Texas case or Congress moves against the ACA, jobs and the economy will spiral downward. Senator John McCain before his death gave the famous thumbs down that saved the ACA from "skinny repeal" by one vote. The Arizona Senate race matters.”

(To learn more about SASE, join this webinar with Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald and Cato CMO Yishay Yovel.)

“Since its inception Cato has focused on making networking simpler. But simplicity isn’t just about our service; it’s also about how we partner,” says Shlomo Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Cato Networks. “We enable partners to profit from digital transformation no matter the opportunity whether its SD-WAN as an MPLS replacement, secure branch Internet access, optimized global connectivity, facilitating cloud adoption, or mobile access.”

“Working with Cato allows our clients to gain technical, operational and financial efficiencies,” says Eric Ludwig, specialist with the aggregation, infrastructure and managed services team at CDW Corporation, a leading multi-brand technology solutions provider. “Our clients can now leverage existing contracts with WAN suppliers while building a strategic roadmap to consolidation.”

STRONG MARGIN OPPORTUNITIES AND EASY ADOPTION

Unlike traditional channel programs, Cato has structured its business model so partners can maximize profitability and shorten their sales cycles. Cato’s list price is competitive and built to win deals without extensive discounts, making profitability more predictable. No longer do vendors have to approve discounts on every deal, enabling partners to progress deals independently. All of which is guaranteed through easy deal registration and proper deal protection.

“With Cato we’ve been able to benefit from the disruptive cloud business,” says Yoji Ota, Manager at Macnica Networks Corporation, a global technology value-added distributor. “Offering a subscription service has made forecasting much, much easier. We’ve been able to accumulate reoccurring sales revenue that will lead to stable profits for years to come.”

The program is also simple to understand, consisting of only two partner tiers. For either tier, adopting Cato requires no capital investment. Training and certification are free, and available online and on-demand. For qualified partners, Cato offers free demo licenses, free equipment, and marketing development funds (MDF) to support partners’ lead-generation efforts.

“We’ve analyzed what works with partner programs – and what doesn’t,” says Alon Alter, Chief Revenue Officer at Cato Networks. “We believe in supporting our partners but at the same time giving them maximum independence. It’s because of their efforts and our unique platform that we’ve seen an 80% win ratio post proof of concept (PoC).”

EXPANDING REVENUE STREAMS BY CAPITALIZING ON REVOLUTIONARY SASE PLATFORM

With Cato’s world-first SASE platform, partners can instantly profit from the disruption of the $60 billion managed network service market. First defined in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking, 2019, SASE converges many disparate network and network-security capabilities including SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, SDP/ZTNA, DNS protection, and FWaaS onto a global, cloud-native architecture.

Partnering with Cato equips partners with a broad portfolio of revenue-generating networking and security services. There’s none of the complexity and overhead of learning, integrating, and managing multiple networking and security point-solutions.

“Reselling Cato allows us to strengthen our relationship with our customers,” says Bill Hooper, Chief Operating Officer at Realcom Solutions, a provider of network consulting and management services. “As they go through their digital transformation, we’re able to provide more and more solutions to meet their evolving needs.”

“Partnering with Cato opened new options for us to grow our business. It has allowed us to take a differentiated proposition to the channel. With digital transformation the new security and networking needs are perfectly addressed by the SASE approach,” says Sean Remnant, chief security officer at Ignition Technology, a next generation value-added distributor.

CATO PARTNER PORTAL EARNS HIGH PRAISE FROM CHANNEL PARTNERS

As part of the partner program, Cato has redesigned the Cato Partner Portal. The portal brings a partner from “registration to graduation.” Onboarding is structured and simple. Training sessions are recorded by Cato experts specifically targeting channel enablement. Deal registration and pipeline management are done directly from the portal.

“The process of onboarding to become a Cato certified partner was rapid and a natural fit,” says Tim Sullivan, CEO of Coevolve, a leading global provider of integrated SD-WAN solutions and cloud networking services. “The market for integrated network and security capabilities has evolved rapidly for multinational enterprise. Being able to easily connect all of their locations and roaming users to applications bypassing Internet congestion is a real game changer.”

“This new portal definitely delivers on all elements we need for smooth partner enablement, marketing support, and deal management,” says Adam Davison, sales and marketing director at Cloud Distribution, a next generation value-added distributor.

“The sales training is well structured and give a whole picture of how Cato network works and how it can help customers,” says Riccardo Roasio, Solution Engineers Manager, at CriticalCase, a high-availability cloud service provider.
