Sarah Benson, one of the co-directors of the Off–Off Broadway theater Soho Rep, remembers just when she hit her panic point this summer. In one week, seven artists she knew announced they were abandoning theater and New York. “They were leaving the field because they couldn’t afford it,” Benson says. “Artists and colleagues and friends literally couldn’t afford to be here.” As an institution, Soho Rep had managed to secure some grant income, allowing the small theater to maintain all its staff positions while hunkering down and weathering the storm. But with artists leaving the city en masse, Benson and the theater’s other directors, Cynthia Flowers and Meropi Peponides, realized that the same storm was washing their community away. Why save money if there was no one to save for? So instead of “shrinking and containing,” says Flowers, they and the board agreed to use

Kenyatta National Hospital employees will go on strike on Monday next week if their salaries and allowances are not reviewed.

The employer will part with Sh2.4 billion annually if the management accedes to their demands.

The hundreds of doctors, nurses and non-medical staff held peaceful protests within KNH premises on Friday, during which their unions gave the strike notice.

Should their demands be met, the monthly salaries of some of them will double.

The protesters are members of the Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists and Dentists Union, Kenya National Union of Nurses and Kenya Union of Domestic, Hotels, Education Institutions, Hospitals and Allied Workers.

“These monies are available. They have been partially implemented because the former CEOs benefited,” KMPDU acting secretary general Chibanzi Mwachonda said.

The workers and the management have had a long running dispute since 2012 when the State Corporation Advisory Committee recategorised all parastatals including referral hospitals

Liberia: Doctors Warn of High Death Rate Should Health Workers Strike Continue – Condemns Replacement of Striking Workers

Monrovia — The Liberia Medical and Dental Association (LMDA) has expressed concerns that if nothing is done to quickly resolve the standoff between the government and striking health workers, the country’s health sector would soon collapse and there would be a mounting death toll at hospitals and health centers.

The LMDA also condemned the government’s action to replace the striking health workers with new recruits, noting that such would only compound the existing problem.

The LMDA acts as the national representative body for the medical profession as well as promote health care delivery in Liberia.

The Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism in a press statement over the weekend disclosed that “The Ministry of Health has been instructed to solicit applications from qualified health workers of various grades, including nurses, nurse aides, midwives, laboratory technicians, etc. in order to fill the temporary vacancies that have resulted from the strike action.

Understanding the significance of dental practice valuations during COVID-19

The potential buyer will certainly have his or her dental CPA and financial advisor carefully study the valuation and have these experts offer comments about the loss of business caused by the COVID-19 turmoil and compare that to the upside that the practice has achieved in the past. Its past growth, revenue trends, and operating profit will be an important aspect during the analysis and reporting of the valuation and its methodologies. The detail presented will assist the buyer in determining if the dental practice can achieve enough earnings to pay the practice acquisition debt and support enough profit for the willing buyer to see the upside to the potential purchase or an offer will not be made.

Even though the losses may have been significant during the time of the pandemic, the valuation should offer what the purchaser needs to see to be able to make his or her

GUC sees increase in payments, facility nears completion | News

Greenville Utilities customers are making progress in paying bills they were allowed to postpone after the pandemic began in March, officials said last week, and the utility is hoping to begin moving into its new operations center later this month.

Members of the Greenville Utilities Commission Board of Directors discussed the progress along with other business at their monthly meeting on Thursday. CEO/General Manager Tony Cannon said the number of unpaid bills has been dropping steadily as more customers make payment arrangements.

GUC and other municipal utility providers have incurred a backlog of unpaid bills after they halted utility shutoffs and allow customers to delay payment for services in response to job losses and salary cuts related to COVID-19.

GUC currently has 2,300 customers who haven’t made payment arrangements. “That number is down from a high of 6,500,” Cannon said. “Last month, we started the month of August, with a
