Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a Maryland Healthcare Company to Call About Rewards If Their Employer Is Gouging Medicare With Inflated Bills

We are certain there are healthcare companies in Maryland that routinely are gouging Medicare-and as we would like to discuss with a whistleblower the rewards for proof could be significant”

— Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 11, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are appealing to an employee of a healthcare provider in Maryland to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a discussion about whistleblower rewards-if their employer is routinely gouging Medicare by forcing patients to undergo medically unnecessary medical treatments, or if they are billing Medicare for treatments that never happened. We are certain there are healthcare companies in Maryland that routinely are gouging Medicare-and as we would like to discuss with a potential whistleblower the rewards for specific proof of these types practices could be significant." http://Maryland.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The types of healthcare workers in Maryland the Maryland Corporate Whistleblower would like to hear from include potential whistleblowers who have proof of the following:

* A ER doctor who can prove a Maryland based hospital/employer is routinely admitting Medicare patients for medically unnecessary tests or procedures.
* An employee at a skilled nursing facility anywhere in Maryland that is forcing Medicare patients to undergo medically unnecessary rehab-therapy-every day.
* A manager at a Maryland based nursing home that is billing Medicare as if the facility is fully staffed when in fact it is not. In reality-the nursing home is constantly understaffed. The Nursing home could be located anywhere in Maryland including communities such as Baltimore, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Bowie, Rockville, Hagerstown, or Annapolis.
* A Maryland based hospice provider that is signing up Medicare patients for hospice-even though the patients do not qualify for hospice-because they are not dying.

The Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “If you are a healthcare worker anywhere in Maryland and your employer is overbilling Medicare every day for unwarranted medical procedures or for medical treatments that never happened please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and allow us to explain how the federal whistleblower system works. The wrongdoing must involve at least a million dollars for a whistleblower to get properly compensated. Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might be worth?" http://Maryland.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Maryland Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Maryland based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Maryland can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Maryland.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Apostle Crystal Moore Naylor of Total Salvation Church to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

When a person chooses to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, it is then that God, the Holy Spirit, comes to reside inside of that individual's spirit.”

— Crystal Moore Naylor

ODENTON, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, July 10, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — John 3:16 states: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.''

Apostle Crystal Moore Naylor is the founder, president and senior pastor of Total Salvation Church Inc. The church is dedicated to bringing people from all walks of life into the knowledge of Jesus Christ so that they may have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and partake of the divine inheritance of Total Salvation. The vision of Total Salvation Church is to prepare people for the return of Jesus Christ, as various parts of God’s Total Salvation package are taught and ministered.

“We preach and teach the whole word of God,” says Apostle Naylor. “Our calling is to bring the whole word of God to the whole man, spirit, body, and soul, to enable each to live a victorious life in Jesus Christ and to prepare people for the return of Jesus Christ, and let them know how much He loves them.”

While Apostle Naylor says there are many facets of salvation, the greatest miracle of all is when a person chooses to accept Christ as their Savior. God loved us so much that he gave mankind free will. We have the choice even now and God wants each of us to choose life.

“We’ve seen miracles and healings through the power of Almighty God," says Apostle Naylor. "I have a holy reverence for Him because I know who He is. I know He loves mankind and I also know the importance of walking in holiness.”

Apostle Naylor is also the author of Victorious! Glorious! Church! The book encourages Christians to enter a deeper level of intimacy with the Lord. Readers will explore God’s Great Love that He has for them, and will come to realize how special they are to Him.

First Church of Christ, Scientist and Related Urban Share Vision For Historic Preservation and World-Class Architecture

First Church of Christ, Scientist

Church and Related Urban

Partnership could preserve the 89-year-old house of worship along the waterfront and answer the call for new Class-A office space in downtown West Palm Beach.

Landmarking the church, preserving greenspace and maintaining its original concept is important for the church and the West Palm Beach community at-large”

— Harvey E. Oyer III

WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, July 10, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nearly 100 community leaders gathered together for a reception inside the First Church of Christ, Scientist, an architecturally significant structure, located at 809 S. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach FL on June 8, 2017. The church, which can be demolished at any time because it is not currently landmarked, has received numerous development proposals over more than a decade, all of which covered the entire site with a new building; until a proposal from Related Urban with a bold new idea to preserve the house of worship through an endowment fund, protecting a part of West Palm Beach community history forever.

Renowned architect David M. Childs, of Skidmore, Owens and Merrill, who designed One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) in New York City, is the architect behind the plans for Related’s 25-story slender Class-A office building, spoke at the event. He shared Related’s solution that will preserve the church building, with its Greek-inspired columns, along with its history and heritage, in perpetuity. The plan’s proposed building would occupy a mere 17 percent of the site, sitting back 330 feet from Flagler Drive, providing 1.25 acres of public greenspace along the waterfront, and anchoring the Flagler Financial and Okeechobee Business districts, said to be attractive to financial firms, family offices, hedge funds and corporations wanting to relocate to South Florida. An on-site restaurant would be open to the public. It is anticipated that Related’s project would also bring high-end companies to the area, construction, permanent jobs, and millions of dollars in tax revenues that could be used by the city to fund neighborhood projects, public safety initiatives or reduce taxes. The new structure would join three other West Palm Beach Class-A office buildings: Phillips Point, Esperante and CityPlace Office Tower.

“Landmarking the church, preserving greenspace and maintaining its original concept is important for the church and the West Palm Beach community at-large,” said Harvey E. Oyer III, a historian and partner in the West Palm Beach office of Shutts & Bowen, who described the endowment plan in detail.

“Related’s creation of an endowment fund that ensures the historic preservation of the building, regardless of what happens to the congregation or office building, provides reassurance to the public and sets a new standard for historic preservation that may be followed in the future.”

Church member Gloria Hudspeth emceed the morning tour, which also included a presentation on the history of Christian Science by Cindy L. Minotte, C.S., remarks from the Rev. Gerald D. Kisner, Pastor of the Tabernacle Baptist Church, the oldest church in West Palm Beach, and the Rev. William Washington, Pastor of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, discussed the importance of celebrating the work of Julian Abele, a prominent African American architect who designed the 89-year-old church as well as The Philadelphia Museum of Art, Widener Memorial Library at Harvard University, and the Duke University Quad and Chapel, and was the first African American to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Architecture. He worked for Horace Trumbauer Architects of Philadelphia, one of the preeminent architectural firm of the 20th century. The proposed Related plan includes a way to honor Abele with public space named in his honor.

“The property is going to be developed,” said Rose Anne Brown, “The Related proposal presents a phenomenal opportunity for the community, particularly for people of color, to have more pride and more understanding. They want to partner and design this in a way that the public is totally included.”

Some of the founding families of Palm Beach have connections to the First Church of Christ, Scientist, like Marjorie Merriweather Post, who was a congregant, and architect Addison Mizner, whose local workshop crafted the limestone columns of the Classic Revival-style building. Esteemed event guests with ties to Palm Beach island included Laurel Baker, John Blades, Ted Cooney, David Hamilton, Maria Hamilton, and Amanda Skier. West Palm Beach leadership was represented robustly with Mayor Jeri Muoio, Commissioners Keith James, Paula Ryan, former Mayor Joel Daves, Rose Ann Brown, Joe Chase, Raphael Clemente, Beatrice Coleman, Jack Frost, Dennis Grady, Friederike Mittner, Melissa Nash, Bill Newgent, Michael Odom, Bob Sanders, David Smith, and Paul Twitty.

Related Companies is one of the single largest private investors along the Okeechobee Corridor and is committed to the long-term success of West Palm Beach. The developer has opened CityPlace, CityPlace Office Tower, and the West Palm Beach Hilton, Convention Center Hotel

Psychic to the Stars Rose Stuart Works on Finding Celebrity Donal Logue's Missing Daughter

Rose Stuart; Psychic to the Stars

Psychic to the Stars Rose Stuart Works on Finding Missing 16 Year Old Jade Smith–Daughter of Gotham Star Donal Logue

I feel It is all a big hoax. I feel that Jade is not really kidnapped but that she is trying to scare her family or get back at them for something, but I feel that she could still be in danger…”

— Rose Stuart

LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 8, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 16 year old daughter of TV's Gotham star Donal Logue–Jade Smith, has been reportedly missing for over a week now, sources report. Psychic to the Stars Rose Stuart is reportedly volunteering her help to try find the missing girl. Jade Smith is believed to be somewhere in the New York or New Jersey area, news reports have stated.

Producer and talent manager Bruce Edwin, whose charitable work includes helping to find missing or trafficked kids in Hollywood and beyond, states that he contacted his Psychic to the Stars friend Rose Stuart regarding the case, at which the two spoke at length. "It was stunning," Bruce says, "Because Rose and I both had identical intuitive feelings about the situation regarding Jade."

Rose Stuart states that it is all a big hoax, and that Jade is not really kidnapped, but possibly ran away after a possible argument with her father–Donal Logue. She states that Jade is probably trying to scare her family, and that Jade probably has a girlfriend who is an older woman, around 19 or 20, that her father may have not wanted her seeing. Rose states that the girlfriend is the one mostly behind Jade hiding, and that there are also two or more other young men that she is hiding out with, who are involved. Rose predicts that the group is trying to get attention, and realizes that Jade's family has money, and that they may be trying to get a ransom from her family soon, but are trying to figure out how to do it without getting in trouble, and are trying to decide what to do but are confused. Rose adds that a lot of drug use is probably going on, and some mental imbalances of Jade, which is clouding her thinking. She states that Jade probably wants to call her mother, but that the girlfriend or group of people are talking her out of communicating. Rose warns to look out for a phone call from a pay phone at any hour of any day or night, to the mother, or to another close family friend or relative.

Rose Stuart adds that she feels that Jade is probably hiding out in one or more series of places including an abandoned building or an old warehouse outside of NYC, possibly in an area in Harlem or another area, with a group of friends, and that the group of kids Rose feels are druggie, rave type kids who may be doing a lot of drugs including x, pot, crystal meth, speed, and alcohol. Rose states that she feels Jade has had many problems in the past, and that she is used to having anything money can buy, so that nothing makes her happy, and she is trying nearly everything to try escape or be happy. Rose states that she feels the biggest threat is the risk of a drug overdose, or even a possible attempted forced, deliberate overdose caused by the people she is with, and that it is urgent because of this to find her fast. She adds that Jade is doing this on purpose to her family to try and get back at them.

Bruce Edwin states, "I tried to call Donal Logue with this and other information, but could not get through to him. I spoke with Donal's father–Jade's grandfather, and he said he was too busy to talk, that he was catching a plane, and said he would call back, but as of this press time, has not called back. I also e-mailed Jade's mother Kasey Smith, who immediately returned my communication with a phone call, who was very nice and appreciative of the information provided." Bruce adds that he feels that 'Jade' is a fake name, and the later reported name of Jade in the media of 'Arlo' may be another alternate name as well, different from her real birth name which he feels the police may have, but is not being made public. Bruce also states that he feels the possible girlfriend and her friends are probably jealous over the media attention Jade is getting, and are trying to figure out a way that they can get this type of attention also, and make money off of the situation, without getting in trouble, but don't know how, and are in way over their heads.

Rose Stuart adds today, "Right now I feel that Jade has simply just ran away from home. I am feeling that she is just partying and having a good time with this bad crowd." Rose Stuart states that she has additional new information that she will provide privately to the family through the office of Bruce Edwin, and wishes the family well, hoping that Jade is found very quickly. Celebrity Psychic Rose predicted the surprising presidential victory of Donald Trump, 9-11, U.S. Election Hacking, and many more documented personal and world events.

Rose Stuart, ranked as one of America’s Most Accurate Psychics, helps people from all walks of life. Based right in the Heartland of America, in Great Falls, Montana. Rose also has a thriving location at The Chinook Centre Mall in Calgary, Canada that is also widely popular.

Celebrate the Obon Festival Tradition in Santa Maria Valley

The Obon Festival is an annual Buddhist event held to commemorate one’s ancestors.

SANTA MARIA, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 7, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Santa Maria, Calif.) – The Santa Maria Valley has deep connections to its diverse cultural roots. From live theatre to cultural celebrations to independent art galleries, the emerging cultural scene is one of the central coast’s best-kept secrets. The annual Obon Festival will be on Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 11:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the Veteran’s Memorial Community Center at 313 West Tunnell Street in Santa Maria, Calif. Admission is free.

The Obon Festival is an annual Buddhist event held to commemorate one’s ancestors. It is believed that each year during Obon, the ancestors’ spirits return to this world in order to visit their relatives.

The festival is open to every one of all ages and will feature Taiko drumming, and Bonsai and martial arts demonstrations, with the highlight being the Obon dancing which all are welcome to participate in.

Traditional Japanese food highlighting local favorites such as udon, sushi, a teriyaki chicken dinner, kushiyaki, wontons and strawberry shortcake will be available for purchase. There will be a free, fun interactive arts and crafts area for kids, with everything from Origami to face painting, along with handmade items for purchase.

There will be raffle tickets available for $5/each, and a teriyaki chicken (1/2 chicken) dinner with rice and edamame for $10/each. Additional food and crafts will be available for purchase at the event. Street parking is free.

The Guadalupe Buddhist Church is one of the oldest Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) in California, established in 1909. The Santa Maria Valley has a unique and dramatic Nikkei history. In the early 1900s, the Japanese labor force grew to nearly 600 with the expansion of the Union Sugar Mill Company of Betteravia. By the 1910s, a cooperative, renamed the Guadalupe Japanese Association, supporting Japanese farm operations, included branches in Santa Maria, Oceano, Pismo and San Luis Obispo; and the Japantowns of Santa Maria and Guadalupe became commercial centers. While some Japanese ventured out as sharecroppers in the sugar beet fields in 1916, others began to farm other crops because of the decline in the industry.

Guadalupe became the town to visit for Japanese migrant workers who followed the crops from north to south, and for dignitaries from Japan who were intrigued by the small, but thriving agricultural town. Baseball enthusiast Setsuo Aratani proudly sponsored a team from the region in 1928 to compete in Japan.

For more information on the Obon Festival or to volunteer, please visit: guadalupebuddhistchurch.org or call 805.343.1053. To make a donation to the festival, please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/annual-obon-festival.

Children in Foster Care in NC Surpasses 11,000 – Children’s Home Society Intensifies Response

Rebecca Starnes, VP Programs and Quality Improvement, CHSNC

Matt Anderson, VP Programs and Business Development, CHSNC

A steadily rising number of children in foster care broke the 11,000 mark in May 2017, the highest level in 10-years…

GREENSBORO, NC, USA, July 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — In May 2017, a steadily rising number of children in foster care broke the 11,000 mark, the highest level in 10 years and a nearly 28 percent increase over the last five years.

In response to the increasing needs of children in North Carolina, Children’s Home Society is implementing an aggressive four-year strategic plan and realignment that will allow it to double the number of adoptions completed and the number of children served by family finding and enhanced foster care to permanency programs. CHS will triple the number of children served by child specific recruitment, designed to find permanent homes for children who have been in foster care the longest.

Two members of the Children’s Home Society of North Carolina senior leadership team are being promoted and will assume added responsibilities as the agency undergoes this significant growth.

“Children’s Home Society has more than 100 years of experience in responding to the greatest needs of children and families, and we are poised to do more to help the growing number of children in crisis today,” said Brian Maness, President & CEO of CHS.

Rebecca Starnes, as Vice President of Programs and Quality Improvement, will be responsible for leadership of family education services and intensive services to preserve families, reunite children in foster care with extended relatives, and place the longest-waiting children in foster care with adoptive families.

Matt Anderson, as Vice President of Programs and Business Development, will lead foster care and adoption services, post-adoption services, public policy, governmental affairs, and grants management.

“As CHS continues to adapt to meet the needs of children and families today and in the future, we are very fortunate to have these two CHS leaders who are positioned to take on significantly expanded leadership roles,” Maness said. “Rebecca and Matt have the benefit of having worked closely together as members of our executive team, as well as through the development and implementation of our most recent strategic plan.”

“The need is great for permanent, safe, and loving families for children at risk in North Carolina. We are excited to take on this challenge with strong leadership,” Maness added.

Starnes has provided and led programs for parents and youth for more than 20 years. She was the Coordinator for Family Programs for the Family Life Council before serving as the Co-Director of that organization. Starnes joined Children’s Home Society through a merger with Family Life Council in 2010. She has led the Family Life Education Division as Vice President and served on the CHS Executive Leadership Team since then. The Family Life Education division tripled in size over the past seven years.

“All children deserve the love and support of family, yet family relationships can be challenging. I am excited to work with these innovative programs focused on protecting and creating strong, healthy families,” Starnes said.

Anderson joined Children’s Home Society in 2011. He has held several increasingly responsible roles since then and most recently served as Vice President of Strategic Advancement. Before his time with CHS, Anderson worked nationally on child welfare reform initiatives. He produced an award-winning documentary on children aging out of foster care, worked in many states and with Congress on important child welfare legislation, and managed child welfare programs in Montana prior to moving to North Carolina.

“Children’s Home Society has a proud history of strengthening families and creating loving homes for children in need. I am honored and humbled to lead a talented and dedicated team of social workers, and I am excited to see the impact we are going to have for children and families across North Carolina,” Anderson said.

CHS helps support more than 20,000 children and families annually through a diverse array of services including adoption, foster care, parenting education, teen pregnancy prevention, and family preservation programs.

Trump Asked to Honor Pulse Victims after Credit Czar's Return to Sacred Ground

SubscriberWise founder and America's child identity guardian David Howe honoring and remembering Pulse victims

SubscriberWise CEO, FICO world champion, and credit czar David Howe pays respect in Orlando while lobbying President to act in honor of victims with ECOA action

One year after the horrific massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the United States of America continues to have a federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act that remains incomplete and inadequate”

— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and FICO global GOAT

ORLANDO, FL, USA, July 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the nation’s leading advocate for children victimized by identity fraud, today announced a personal plea from SubscriberWise founder and FICO global GOAT David Howe to President Trump concerning the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act. The plea is for an Executive Action to immediately expand the existing ECOA laws to include sexual orientation and gender identity as a protected class.

According to the industry magnate and FICO global superstar, the expansion of the decades’ old law would serve not only as an important and eternal national honor to the Pulse Nightclub victims – America’s sisters and brothers from the Orlando LGBTQ community who were tragically and senselessly murdered on June 12, 2016 – but also as a guarantee that no citizen, including President Trump who just happens to have the dominant heterosexual orientation, will ever be victimized by discrimination with respect to any aspect of a transaction involving credit because of sexual orientation or gender identity.

“One year after the horrific massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the United States of America continues to have a federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act that remains incomplete and inadequate,” argued David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, national child guardian, and the worldwide highest FICO Achiever since Alan Turing – the phenomenally complex and persecuted gay genius whose contributions to humanity are so far-reaching and so profound they can never be fully contained or appreciated by mere mortals – invented the computer. “And what a sad indictment this is for the U.S.A. because expanding the existing ECOA is one of the most immediate and obvious ways our government can continue to right the wrong of this nation’s long and disgusting behavior involving intolerance and discrimination against our LGBTQ sisters and brothers.

The peace builders of Northern Kenya; Successful, research-led model spreads to other African nations

AK47 Weapons: As Common as Cooking Pots in Northern Kenya

Fr. Patrick Devine with a group of parents, Northern Kenya

Research: the foundation of Shalom Centre’s peace building and training

Founded in aftermath of 2007-08's national post-election violence, Kenya's Shalom Centre pioneers successful, research-led formula for preventing conflict

When the causes of conflict are not only identified but also agreed upon by those involved, peace-building techniques create a way to look forward to a constructive future.”

— Fr. Patrick Devine, Founder, Shalom Centre

NAIROBI, NAIROBI COUNTY, KENYA, July 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — An innovative research-led model for building peace has been pioneered by an Irish Catholic priest and his Shalom Centre colleagues working in areas of Northern Kenya where assault rifles are as common in households as cooking pots.

Lawlessness is prevalent in the isolated areas of Kenya bordering Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Somalia, and family possessions include, on average, 1.6 AK-47s, the weapon of choice also of organized cattle-rustling gangs.

Weak institutions, porous borders and climate change, meanwhile, combine to make conditions harsher, nurturing historic, sometimes violent competition over scarce resources between the 11 ethnic communities of Northern Kenya with which the Centre works.

More recently, conflicts over official positions and new administrative boundaries driven by politics have become commonplace. Of immediate concern to the peace makers: the Aug. 8 Kenya general elections. In 2007-08, post-election violence nationwide, fuelled by political in-fighting, retaliation and power struggles, left roughly 1,300 Kenyans dead, 60,000 maimed and 600,000 displaced.

The Shalom Center for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation, founded by Fr. Patrick Devine in 2009, which works as well in the slums of Nairobi, has cultivated a unique approach to conflict resolution, its success recognized and celebrated with a host of international awards.

And the model is expanding into other parts of Africa, starting with Côte d'Ivoire, Tanzania and the Central African Republic, with further plans to establish centres as well in Ethiopia, South Sudan, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The model's success is founded on extensive research into areas of complaint and issues that drive conflict then working with key community opinion-shapers — elders, women, youth and influential chiefs — to reach a common understanding of both the history and current definition of a conflict's source, while building trust and co-operation to reach solutions.

Through workshops, Shalom is creating a legacy of conflict resolution, training to date more than 9,600 community leaders as peacemakers.

Strategies also include sustainable human development in conflicted communities through projects. Lasting results include the building of solar-powered inter-ethnic and inter-religious schools, medical centres and water projects.

The philosophy of Fr. Devine, a 29-year veteran of African ministry: Conflicts are created by unmet human needs and the inability of weak institutions to help people actualize their potential. Shalom's peaceful coexistence goal is simple: "To help the people become the architects of their own future."

Shalom's grassroots-based methodology, he says, embraces prevention and transformation — "delving deep into the social, economic, historical, cultural and religious factors that contribute to extremist behaviours that cause significant destruction and trauma to individuals and communities. Conjecture and speculation are no basis for policy making."

Conflict in the region can be linked to several primary causes: scarcity and mismanagement of core environmental resources, infrastructure insecurity, weak institutions and the political economy of governance, historic tribal land and cultural conflict, all contributing to an unhelpful proliferation of illegal small arms.

"Every conflict has a memory," says Fr. Devine, honoured in 2013 with the International Caring Award, and recently nominated for Ireland's prestigious Tipperary International Peace Prize. "When the causes of conflict are not only identified, but also agreed upon by those involved, peace-building techniques create a way to look forward to a constructive future."

Nairobi-based Shalom Centre's international research and field staff are expert in conflict management theory and practice. All have at least a masters' level education. "And I have never met a group with the persistence, commitment and consistency of Shalom staff," says Fr. Devine.

The goal is not what he calls "negative peace," or just an end to fighting but rather "positive peace," where both sides in a conflict see the benefits of protecting the others' security and wellbeing.

"There's more than enough in the environment for everyone's need," he says, "but not enough for everyone's greed."

Fr. Devine explains why he founded Shalom: "I didn't want to spend another 25 years just dealing with the symptoms of conflict and poverty, nor just putting money through a sieve without substantial endurable results."

"Our centre helps people in this region emerge from patterns of ongoing conflict, an environment in which people are persistently killed, maimed and displaced, preventing social and religious values, such as truth, justice, peace, mercy and reconciliation, from taking deep root. Nor can development be sustained if schools, hospitals, programs, and religious centres are regularly made inoperable due to conflict."

Fr. Devine underlines the non-sectarian nature of the centre's work. "Shalom should not be owned by any one religious tradition," he says. "If we can bring about peace in the world, we can all find our path to God."

At a May EU meeting in Brussels to address the humanitarian situation in Africa, Yemen and Syria, Joe McHugh, Ireland's Minister of State for the Diaspora and Overseas Development, noted the impossibility of sustainable development without peace.

He singled out Shalom's "great work" and lauded the centre for making inroads in "interethnic conflict reconciliation where, for the first time in a particular region even with drought and massive challenges, the peace is holding."

"If there are examples working we should look to them and support them."

The Shalom Centre for Conflict Resolution and Reconciliation is supported by partner organizations and a network of visionary donors, primarily from the United States, United Kingdom and Ireland.

With a budget of less than $1M US per year and low (7%) overhead costs, Shalom leverages the donations of its supporters to maximize its work on the ground in tribal areas, particularly in the semi-arid terrains, and in the largest slum settlements in urban centres of Eastern Africa.

Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Appeals to a Healthcare Employee in Minnesota To Call Them About Rewards If Their Employer Is Substantially Overbilling Medicare

We are specifically focused on a healthcare provider billing Medicare for performing unnecessary medical procedures as we would like to discuss”

— Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, June 22, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging an employee of any type of healthcare provider, a hospital, a skilled nursing facility, a nursing home, an imaging center, a dialysis center or a in home healthcare company anywhere in Minnesota to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is engaged in significant overbilling of Medicare. They are specifically focused on a healthcare provider billing Medicare for performing unnecessary medical procedures as they would like to discuss.
http://Minnesota.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Examples of the type of potential healthcare whistleblower the Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from:

* An employee of a skilled nursing facility or nursing home that is involved overbilling Medicare with unnecessary medical procedures-on a daily basis.
* An employee or insider with proof a cardiology group in Minnesota that is performing unnecessary cardiac catheterizations on their patients.
* An employee of a 'Sleep Center' in Minnesota that is gouging Medicare with significant up-coding or for medical procedures that never took place or procedures that were medically unnecessary.
* A ER doctor anywhere in Minnesota who has proof their hospital/employer is billing Medicare for unneeded medical procedures or admissions on a very regular basis

The Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging a medical doctor or healthcare worker in Minnesota to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if they have proof their employer is involved in substantial overbilling of Medicare. In some instances, an eyewitness account is good enough. What makes Minnesota unique is that with so many smaller cities or towns a local healthcare provider can get away with all kinds of things and the employees say nothing out of fear of losing their job. Our statewide initiative is focused on identifying whistleblower with significant Medicare fraud/overbilling throughout Minnesota including communities such as Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Rochester, Duluth, Bloomington, Brooklyn Park, Plymouth, or Saint Cloud.

"Why sit on a winning lotto ticket without ever discovering what it could be worth? We are all about helping a Minnesota healthcare whistleblower getting rewarded for their information about substantial Medicare overbilling as we would like to discuss anytime” http://Minnesota.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Minnesota Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Minnesota based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Minnesota can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Minnesota.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com
