PMWC 2014 Silicon Valley Honors YW Kan with New Pioneer Award at Annual Conference

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) November 24, 2013

The Personalized Medicine World Conference, PMWC 2014, to be held on January 27-28, 2014 in Silicon Valley, provides real-world insights into the progress of personalized medicine. Participants can join the discussion and interact with key opinion leaders who are framing and forming the future of this rapidly changing industry. PMWC 2014 is co-hosted by Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Oracle.

This year, PMWC has launched a new honor, called the “Pioneer Award,” to be given on occasion to a rare individual who presaged the present day excitement regarding personalized medicine and made major advances in the field, even at a time when less-evolved technology and less encouragement from peers existed.

For the inaugural award, the Conference’s program committee has chosen to honor Dr. Yuet Wai Kan, an innovator in disease detection. Dr. Kan has pioneered the design and implementation of prenatal DNA-based screening tests for sickle cell anemia, thalassemias, and various other single gene disorders. Additionally, he discovered DNA polymorphism, used extensively in gene discovery.

Dr. Kan’s research has highlighted the links between specific genetic aberrations and congenital diseases, while also expanding knowledge of hematology and cellular microenvironments. His findings have led to additional research on gene expression control mechanisms, as well as the establishment of genetic disease models. Dr. Kan is currently working to use stem cell approaches to treat blood and infectious diseases.

Gloucester, VA (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

Ware Academy is going wild this year at its annual silent auction.

The Gloucester independent school will host its signature annual fundraising event in the gymnasium on campus, featuring a Wild About Ware safari theme, on Nov. 16 from 6 p.m. to midnight.

This year, for the first time, the auction will include live music from Slapnation, the band formerly known as Slapwater.

The Ware Academy Parents Association conducts fundraising events each year to support academic programs, technology, the athletic department and the fine and performing arts.

The event has proven so successful over the years because of the strong support for education across the community among Ware Academy student families as well as Middle Peninsula residents and thanks to the unique silent auction items, the event committee pulls together, said Ginger James, Ware Academys Director of Admissions and Special Events.

Ware Academy has already received donations of week-long vacations at all-inclusive resorts in Panama, the British Virgin Islands, Antigua, St. Lucia and Barbados, James said.

Individuals, families and businesses can sponsor the auction itself or donate unique items for guests to bid on.

Cash sponsorships of $ 1,000 or more include six tickets to the auction (valued at $ 75 each) with preferred seating at a reserved table and signage to represent the donor.

Ware Academy is located at 7036 John Clayton Memorial Highway in Gloucester.

Tax Reform, IRS Funding and Identity Theft Top National Taxpayer Advocate’s Annual Report to Congress


Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 10, 2013

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson today released her 2012 Annual Report to Congress, identifying the need for tax reform as the overriding priority. The National Taxpayer Advocate also expressed concern that IRS funding is inadequate to collect revenue or serve taxpayer needs and that victims of both tax-related identity theft and return preparer fraud are falling through the cracks.

TAX REFORM

The National Taxpayer Advocates Annual Report to Congress designates the complexity of the tax code as the #1 most serious problem facing taxpayers and recommends that Congress take significant steps to simplify it.

[The complexity of the tax code] obscures comprehension, leaving many taxpayers unaware how their taxes are computed and what rate of tax they pay, Olson wrote.

Since 2001, Congress has made nearly 5,000 changes to the tax code, an average of more than one a day, and the number of words in the code appears to have reached nearly four million. An analysis of IRS data by the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) shows that individuals and businesses spend about 6.1 billion hours each year complying with tax-filing requirements.

An infographic and video on the need for tax reform are available on the 2012 Annual Report to Congress website.

IRS FUNDING

The IRS budget has been reduced in each of the last two fiscal years, and appears likely to face further cuts in coming years. Although these cuts reflect across-the-board reductions in federal discretionary spending, underfunding the IRS makes no sense.

The plain truth is that the IRSs mission trumps all other agencies missions, because without an effective revenue collector, you cant fund those other agencies, Olson said.

Each dollar appropriated for the IRS generates substantially more than one dollar in additional revenue.

The report says that lack of funding is also preventing the IRS from meeting taxpayer needs. For example, in FY 2012, the IRS answered just 68 percent of its calls, and those who got through spent an average of nearly 17 minutes waiting on hold.

When taxpayers are attempting to comply with laws that require them to turn over a significant portion of their incomes to pay our nations bills, they have a right to expect that their government will do a better job of taking their telephone calls and answering their letters, Olson said.

TAX-RELATED IDENTITY THEFT

The number of tax-related identity theft incidents has increased substantially in recent years. At the end of FY 2012, the IRS had almost 650,000 identity-theft cases in its inventory. The problem has grown worse as organized criminal actors have found innovative ways to steal the Social Security numbers (SSNs) of taxpayers, file tax returns using those taxpayers names and SSNs, and obtain fraudulent refunds.

Despite some changes by the IRS, victims still face the same labyrinth of procedures and drawn-out timeframes for resolution they faced five years ago.

Taxpayers need one-stop shopping a single point of contact they can work with to resolve all issues in their cases, Olson said. Six months is an unacceptable period of time to expect taxpayer-victims to wait.

An infographic and video on the ways the IRS burdens identity theft victims are available on the 2012 Annual Report to Congress website.

THE REPORT

Overall this years report identifies the 23 most serious problems affecting taxpayers, including those outlined above and:
