Digital transformation helps Humana build COVID-19 test site finder in one month

When health insurance company Humana Inc. started its digital transformation about two years ago, there was no sign of the COVID-19 pandemic on the horizon, and the company’s goal was to build new and better ways to interact with customers.

But when the coronavirus crisis hit the world, Humana was able to offer much more than just a good experience — it responded quickly to new demands that emerged as a result of the pandemic and built an effective way for users to find COVID-19 test sites in one month.

“The testing locations change constantly, the type of tests they have, the supplies that they have, the hours of operations,” said Bruce Buttles (pictured), digital channels director at Humana. “So that’s really where this COVID-19 test location came from; it was out of the genesis of what we had started doing on the provider finder.”

Buttles spoke with Stu Miniman

7 Sin Stocks To Buy That Will Outperform the S&P 500

While the S&P 500 and a wide range of stocks continue their September slide, many investors are understandably jittery, wondering if a second market crash is coming this year. In response, they’re searching for industries that can offer more stability, but also growth and income over the coming quarters. One such group are the so-called “sin stocks,” which benefit when humans indulge in vices.Although there may be different definitions of sin stocks, these businesses include those in alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, gambling, adult entertainment, weapons and defense industries. What is viewed as a sin stock today may also change over time.Recent research by David Blitzo of Robeco Asset Management in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and Frank J. Fabozzi of EDHEC Business School in Nice, France, highlights how “various studies … [of] the historical performance of sin stocks … [show] they

Developer to build on former Little Sisters of the Poor nursing home site in Warrensville Heights

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A developer plans to build on a 1 million square-foot site in Warrensville Heights, which was once home to a nursing home run by the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Cannata Companies plans to create what it is calling the “Silverpoint” development on 15 acres in the 4200 block of Richmond Road, which is in the Chagrin Highlands area on the border of Warrensville Heights and Beachwood, fronting Interstate 271.

The plans involve building commercial space, apartments and parking, according to a news release from Cushman & Wakefield/CRESCO, which is marketing the property.

Cannata bought the property from the Little Sisters of the Poor in 2015 for $2.2 million. The Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of nuns which cares for the elderly poor, withdrew from running Sts. Mary and Joseph Home for the Aged in 2015. The facility later ran as Altercare at St. Joseph

DRDO to build directed energy weapons for future combat

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is planning to develop directed energy weapons (DEWS) like high-energy lasers and high-powered microwaves. The DEWS will be a part of a national programme, which will have short, medium, and long-term goals, according to a Times of India report.

DRDO will develop different DEWS variants of up to 100-kilowatt power, in collaboration with the domestic industry. These will include ‘chemical oxygen-iodine’ and ‘high-power fibre’ lasers to a secretive ‘Kali’ particle-beam for ‘soft-kills’ against incoming missiles and aircraft, the report added. However, these DEWS are currently nowhere close to being operational.

The DRDO has developed two anti-drone DEW systems, which will now be manufactured in large numbers with the help of the domestic industry. While one is a trailer-mounted DEW, with a 10-kilowatt laser While one is a trailer-mounted DEW, with a

The University of Texas announced Monday it is launching a program called LEVERAGE to help its athletes build their brands and monetize their names and images.

Last October, the NCAA decided to allow athletes to profit off their name and likeness starting in 2021 at the latest.

Michael V. Drake, the chair of the NCAA’s board of governors and president of Ohio State, said in October:

“We must embrace change to provide the best possible experience for college athletes. Additional flexibility in this area can and must continue to support college sports as a part of higher education.

Business Buzz: United We Eat gets a kitchen; Chamber has BUILD grant video | Local News

The Missoula Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the public debut of the 2020 BUILD Grant support video. The video was created to support Missoula County’s application in the federal grant program. The full video can be viewed on the Missoula Chamber’s BUILD Grant Initiative web page,

In 2019, the Chamber organized a trip for 19 members of the public and private sector to Washington, D.C., in support of Missoula’s application. That trip resulted in a $13 million grant — the only BUILD Grant awarded in Montana last year.

Due to COVID-19 concerns and travel restrictions, a trip to Washington, D.C., was not possible this year. The Chamber again volunteered to put together an advocacy effort in support of Missoula County. The Chamber brought together the members of last year’s delegation and, with the help of Paccom Media, produced a video sharing Missoula’s story and the need for further

Steve Bannon’s ‘We Build the Wall’ site is still up, complete with an endorsement from Donald Trump Jr.

Steve Bannon became just the latest former Trump official to be indicted on Thursday when federal prosecutors charged him with defrauding donors to the viral “We Build the Wall” campaign on GoFundMe.

If you’re curious about the fundraiser — which the sweeping indictment alleges funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to the group’s founder Brian Kolfage — well, the website for the nonprofit that sprung from the GoFundMe campaign is somehow still up. You can find it here: In fact, it’s still urging donations and touting an endorsement of none other than Donald Trump Jr. 

Steve Bannon's 'We Build the Wall' site is still up, complete with an endorsement from Donald Trump Jr.

“We The People are coming together to build segments of border wall on private property and the best part is, we’re going to do it for a fraction of what it costs the government,” the About Us page reads. 

The site brags “donations have a direct impact,” which, according to prosectors’ allegations, included some
