All airlines must evaluate the provision amounts and reserve them for possible unpredicted events referring to the International Accounting Standard 37.

VILNIUS, CYPRUS, CYPRUS, May 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Global uncertainty, caused by COVID-19, has brought a significant impact on the economic system as well as on the ability to quickly and effectively respond to the pandemic. According to the recent study published in VOX, a weighty global output contraction will be caused by COVID-19 and more than half of it will be for the reason of economic uncertainty, which is so substantial that its costs are proportionate to the costs created by the pandemic itself.
COVID-19 outbreak leads to a halt, not only for the people of the world but also for the economy heavily affecting the whole business environment that is now experiencing major challenges and the future does not seem bright. The expectations are for the global economy to face the recession that is considered the worst since the Great Depression, according to the International Monetary Fund. However, the World Trade Organisation is even further from the positive side forecasting almost 9 percent negative growth for 2020. The effects also reached the global foreign direct investment (FDI) with the capital from emerging economies flowing out unpredictably. The downward pressure of between -30 and -40 percent in 2020-2021 is predicted for FDI.

There has been a number of epidemics in the past years, including SARS in 2003, H1N1 in 2009, Ebola in 2014, and MERS in 2012, that, also known as MERS-CoV, being similar to COVID-19. While the methods used, such as lockdown, make a positive influence on the spread of the virus and prevent the transmission, there is also a negative side, in which social and economic life of individuals and communities are brought to a standstill impacting their health and wellbeing from other perspectives. All of this causes anxiety and questioning whether there was a strategy for COVID-19 after facing a variety of other viruses, and how is the next contagion going to be dealt with. Bill Gates talked about exactly that in his TED Talk in 2015 stressing that the world is not ready for the next outbreak; in 2017, World Health Organisation (WHO) also released its recommendations regarding this matter, however at that point, the attention and consideration were little.

The scale of COVID-19 contagion will undoubtedly change the situation and anything similar occurring in the future should have better ways to be controlled yet actions businesses for that to happen are required.

The aviation industry, along with other transportation sectors, takes a very important part in limiting the spread of infectious diseases, so the practices learned in the recent outbreak should certainly be integrated into future planning and operations. On March 5, 2020, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), a trade group, projected a possible hit to worldwide revenues of up to $113bn this year. There is no excuse for the industry of such extent not to be ready for shocks and unprecedented events – airlines and airline-supporting businesses must be prepared to respond to them prioritizing the support for employees and customers. Airports also play an important role in the industry’s economy, therefore their infrastructure and resilience must be well supported. A variety of processes, including workforce preparations, training, operation reviews etc., must be undertaken in order to ensure the strength when emergency strikes.

In order to guarantee stability and be fully prepared, all airlines and airline-supporting businesses must evaluate the provision amounts and reserve them for possible unpredicted events referring to the International Accounting Standard 37: Provisions, Contingent Liabilities, and Contingent Assets (IAS 37). The amount of the provision must be of the size required to settle the present obligation of the entity arising from past events. The funds to cover the expenditure for the future events are generated by the appointed sums set to reserve on a regular basis considering the projected frequency of the possible events, may it be outbreaks, repairs, debts, etc.

Taking the last decade, details of the properties of coronavirus were first announced in 1968; although the most compelling ones do not recur very often, the average numbers show that detrimental ones do so approximately every 5-7 years. After this last, COVID-19, event is over, the damage to companies will be known, and it will be clear what exactly needs to be settled. Therefore, if coronavirus has a tendency to recur every 5-7 years, the loss amount shall be divided into parts for this period of time and set aside every year, which would ensure the preparation for the next cycle and act immediately without waiting for decisions from governments to be made. However, the subsequent measurement must be calculated and divided carefully – it should not be based only on the losses, caused by COVID-19.

When the reserve for possible losses is formed, the company’s annual profit is reduced, thus shareholders are not able to pay off more dividends yet when confronted with the crisis, the company has funds to help it overcome the suspension of operation. To substantiate the funds, which are kept in the reserve, the company must refer to the requirements of IAS 37.

Such a method, supported by IAS 37, is highly beneficial as it allows the airlines and airline-supporting businesses to avoid sudden fallouts, vast losses that are often lead to bankruptcies and extents, where third parties are often involved and victimized.

— Will Lowe

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual healthcare solutions had yet to see mainstream adoption in healthcare.

With Africa Leading the Charge in the Crypto Revolution, CMDX Looks to Realize the Billion Dollar Crown

Akons’ Vision of Crypto City

The global online health community, looking to grow its member base and its cryptocurrency's value, has found success in Africa’s growing market

African's have the opportunity to create the first decentralized monetary system in the world returning the power back to the people. Crypto in Africa will redefine the true meaning of capitalism.”

— Tom McMurrain, CEO, CMDX

ROSEAU, DM, DOMINICA, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As cryptocurrency gains wider acceptance and adoption into mainstream culture, industry experts have their eyes set on Africa as a market indicator and believe the continent will become the "world bank" of cryptocurrency.

To some, the rise of cryptocurrency in Africa may come as a surprise. Despite tight regulations, infrastructure concerns, and economically depressed conditions in many of the continent’s countries, cryptocurrency is flourishing. In fact, recent reports show that Africans have the highest rate of cryptocurrency adoption in the world, making it the center of the universe for those looking to get their currency on the map.

So why the interest in cryptocurrency across Africa? The same reports note that one factor driving this trend is slow remittance speeds, skyrocketing inflation rates, and exorbitant remittance fees charged by regulatory bodies. With its faster transaction speeds, lower fees, and decentralized operations structure, cryptocurrency is becoming an attractive alternative for African citizens for investing, starting businesses, and purchasing goods and services.

As CMDX looks to grow the value and prevalence of its token on the cryptocurrency markets, CEO Tom McMurrain is pursuing dominance as the #1 health cryptocurrency in the world with Africa as the foundation. African's have the opportunity to create the first decentralized monetary system in the world that will return the power back to the people. With cryptocurrency Africa is the new land of opportunity

CMDX has had a presence in Africa for some time and has recognized the cryptocurrency savviness of its African community members. CMDX is a global community dedicated to generating wealth by rewarding its members for engaging in healthy lifestyle and business-related activities—and the reward just happens to be an added income in the form of the brand’s own cryptocurrency. The company currently boasts over 292,000 members globally and has a strong presence across Africa, with new members from across the continent joining daily.

CMDX’s Burn It and Earn it partnership with Human API gives users the chance to earn its cryptocurrency rewards by sharing their health and wellness data and by selling their goods on its members-only online market space. Through this model, CMDX has had luck in bringing a new level of economic prosperity with this Universal Basic Data Income model to its African members, many of whom live in economically depressed countries.

With the growing African interest in cryptocurrency, McMurrain is looking to CMDX’s African community members to lead the way in sharing his model and investing in the brand’s cryptocurrency, driving its desirability and value across all markets.

For potential African investors looking for an easy way to get started with cryptocurrency, CMDX provides that low cost entry point, giving members the chance to earn an income while accumulating cryptocurrency they can use on CMDX’s marketplace, trading if on CMDX.Pro or Lukki exchange or investing it for their future health costs.

“CMDX is closely watching Africa and learning more about the role African investors are playing in decentralizing money and creating more trust worldwide by creating the freest and most vibrant economy the world has ever seen,” said McMurrain. “CMDX’s African community members have already witnessed the power of our Burn It and Earn it Model, giving them the opportunity to earn an added income for sharing their data and engaging in healthy lifestyle activities. We look forward to working closely with our community members across Africa to grow CMDX’s prevalence, giving every adult on the continent the chance to earn an income and lead the charge in the worldwide cryptocurrency revolution.”

CMDX currently boasts over 290,000 members worldwide, with the goal of achieving five million members by the end of 2021. The company’s mission is to become a top 25 cryptocurrency before 2026, when McMurrain believes the market will hit critical mass awareness.

RELIGIONS ARE "ESSENTIAL"

International Multi-Faith Coalition

International Multi-Faith Coalition

VM

Many faiths have been educating their communities about staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, like this Scientology volunteer who is distributing “Stay Well” educational booklets to essential businesses to distribute to their customers.


The Church of Scientology National Affairs Office, Washington, DC

Responsible prevention practices are essential for a trouble-free opening of all houses of worship, a multi-faith coalition of religious leaders state. 

Our spiritual well being depends on responsible prevention practices.””

— Rev. Susan Taylor

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the White House asserting this week that governors should classify houses of worship as “essential” and permit them to reopen, religious leaders from the International Multi-Faith Coalition (IMFC) urge responsible adoption of guidelines to ensure the physical as well as the spiritual health of those they serve.

The consensus is that all houses of worship should review and understand the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guidance for Communities of Faith
(https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/php/faith-based.html) adopt them to ensure trouble-free opening and to keep their parishioners safe and well. CDC offers general considerations to help communities of faith discern how best to practice their beliefs while keeping their staff and congregations safe. 

"We believe one of the most important points is to educate the religious communities on the proper precautions to take while practicing their faith, as well as in daily life," said Bishop Craig A. Worsham, President of the IMFC. “The role we play as houses of worship in times of crisis cannot be underestimated."

Bishop Worsham added, “I firmly believe that the choice and time frame in which to re-open the sanctuaries for worship services rest with the senior leadership of the local assemblies. Many of the houses of worship across our city indeed have been providing essential services to the community-at-large such as but not limited to: Emergency food & clothing, housing, and testing.”

Several churches have already implemented necessary measures and made resource centers available for their religious communities. One example is the Islamic Center of Southern California which has a Covid-19 Resources section of their website at www.islamiccenter.com/covid19, with information on how to stay well and healthy.

The First African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church has also created resources for this purpose at www.famechurch.org/updates.html.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles also has a Federation Crisis Resources section at www.jewishla.org seeking to educate and there are many more.

The Church of Scientology has a How to Stay Well Resource Center  where people can study, download, print and share booklets, signs and videos on basic prevention principles to keep themselves and others well.

Key recommendations to ensure the reopening houses of worship occur without a hitch include:

1) Taking the temperature of clergy and parishioners when entering. If anyone has a temperature or has been exposed to someone who has been ill or has symptoms, they should return home and isolate themselves.
2) All churches should make sanitizers readily available for their parishioners throughout their quarters.
3) They should follow any regulations on the number of people who may congregate and follow social distancing in events and religious practice.
4) The wearing of mask and gloves while inside the house of worship is highly recommended.
5) Houses of worship should sanitize their quarters frequently to keep it as germ-free as possible.

“We are dedicated to making this transition work. Our congregations need our help now and we must provide that help safely to care for body and soul,” said Bishop Worsham.

Echoing the message of responsible prevention practices for houses of worship as areas of the country reopen, the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office in Washington, DC, and its volunteers continued their outreach around the city sharing the educational material of the church’s Resource Center. Rev. Susan Taylor, National Public Affairs Director, said, “Here in Washington, DC, our city has not yet met the criteria for reopening but all are preparing for the day in the near future when we can start our phase one. We join with others not only here in Washington but around the country in doing all we can to be sure that we move through our reopening phases safely. Our spiritual well being depends on responsible prevention practices.”

The Church of Scientology National Affairs Office is located in Washington, DC, in the historic Fraser Mansion.

Catching up with DJ Melisha

DJ Melisha, Music & Blockchain

the link between music and this technology was very interesting”

— Melisha Linnell

GOTHENBURG, VASTRA GOTALAND, SWEDEN, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Swedish music producer sat down for a Q&A with us about why she’s using the Telos-powered music app Zeptagram to monetize her art, the music business in general, COVID-19, and that Game of Thrones ending, of course.

Veteran musician Melisha Linnell recently began auctioning partial rights to some of her songs on Zeptagram. In doing so, she’s helping to pioneer a whole new revenue model for musicians, who can use the Telos-powered dapp as an alternative to traditional middleman-heavy business streams like royalties and live gigs.
In the Q&A below, we explore why Melisha has turned to Zeptagram, and how her experience with blockchain has gone so far.
Melisha spoke to Telos Foundation content producer Peter A. McKay from her hometown Gothenburg, Sweden, where she has a recording studio at Brewhouse, an industrial space that’s been converted into a “culture factory” to host concerts and other events. She previously earned a bachelor’s degree in music production from University of Dalarna. She also teaches music production, mixing and mastering at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg.
Recently Melisha started working with manager Peter Swartling and is now working on her new EDM/pop album featuring many exciting artists.
In 2019, Melisha released two songs as part of a fan art project called ”Dragon Mother,” based on Game of Thrones.
She also recently started producing songs to a project called SheTrance with artist Nadja Itäsaari. And she is co-founder of an nonprofit called EQLovesMusic, which runs projects in music production and gender equality.

Sedona Area Estate to Auction Online No Reserve via Concierge Auctions and Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty

[The Concierge Auction] platform puts a spotlight on one-of-a-kind properties like my own, reaching the most discerning buyers from around the world.”

— Seller, Lisa Ackler

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Located just outside of Sedona, Arizona, 300 Upper Bell Road—known as The Little Daisy—will auction online next month via Concierge Auctions in cooperation with Donna Chesler of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty.

Bidding will be held June 26-30 via Concierge Auctions’ online marketplace, ConciergeAuctions.com, allowing buyers to bid digitally from anywhere in the world.

Be swept away to the grandeur of a bygone era at this thoughtfully-redesigned family estate. Once a famed miner hotel, the property was lovingly restored over 12 years and reconfigured into 8 bedrooms including a grand master suite—all while paying homage to the original structure. Original hand-plastered ceilings, exterior colorful tiles, walls of french doors, 3,000 square feet of verandas, and an antique copper sink are touches of the property’s past. Entertain guests with ease between the many verandas, blooming rooftop gardens, and the 9,000-square-foot rooftop entertaining space with a cozy sitting area, bar/dining space, and a hot tub for cold desert nights—all with sweeping views of the Sedona Red Rocks and entire Verde Valley.

Nestled in Jerome, Arizona—once known as the “the wickedest town in the west” during its copper mining heyday—the town is known today as a mecca for art, history, and wine lovers alike. Surrounded by historic sites and protected land, residents enjoy beautiful desert landscapes, rock formations, and Native American ruins. Nearby Sedona offers hiking trails with Red Rocks views, while Flagstaff offers skiing, mountain biking, and incredible restaurants.

“This iconic estate sits atop the hillside in Jerome, capturing all-season views of the mountains beyond. Deep-rooted in the town’s history and renovated into the incredible personal residence it is today, this is your chance to own a piece of American history.” said listing agent, Donna Chesler.

Not only did John enlighten us as to the meaning of our assessments, but he also taught us how to capitalize on them through the power of being ‘pointy.’ A completely unique use of these tools.”

— Garret Harrell – Marine Raider

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, US, May 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a good reason that "Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs" is in the title of this book. Look no further than the good and poor examples of situational leadership on display on a daily basis. For organizations to be successful in our new reality they will need agile, resilient leadership based on a proven system. This book is built on the foundation found in place onboard the most sophisticated vessel ever designed to operate in the universe. It operates in the unforgiving, dangerous world beneath our oceans. Perhaps most astonishing is it is operated by a crew with an average age of 22, 80% of which have no more than a high school diploma. Due to agile, resilient leadership there has never been a nuclear accident on board these nuclear-powered submarines. The world will benefit from these universal truths. The Submarine Way works and this new book with helping everyone who reads it drive more effective inclusive leadership.

Most leadership books are long on theory and very very short on solutions, specific tools to drive more effective results. We do not take the easy road in UP PERISCOPE. The co-authors blend their expertise gained from senior leadership in Fortune 300 companies with that gained from being The Gallup Organizations top client rated consultant in the world to bring a dose of reality to developing leaders effectively.

This new book not only builds on their first bestseller, Diversity and Inclusion The Submarine Way with submarine stories around leadership secrets surfaced from this secret world. It goes further into the elements of their patent published leadership development through the inclusion system and specific actions they have helped their clients implement, leading to significant, measurable results.

This new book is about reality, not hype. Below is taken directly from a chapter in UP PERISCOPE, Putting Traditional Leadership in the Crosshairs to demonstrate just one of the numerous, contrarian but highly effective leadership development approaches that will absolutely drive more agile, resilient leaders.

Caring Leaders Do Not Take Care of People

Yes, you heard me right. People who are taken care of do not learn to make independent decisions, or how to handle issues in a crisis and they don’t teach others how to develop people to make good decisions or operate independently. Excellent leaders understand they are responsible for an outcome. They understand others are accountable for the outcome as well, but they teach others to get the job done and to get it done right. Five things a leader can do to teach a person to fish, so they can eat for the rest of their life:

1. Roles and jobs should have talent considerations. Individuals should be placed in jobs where their talents and strengths can contribute.

2. Mistakes happen. We all learn from our mistakes as well as our successes. If individuals do not feel safe to make mistakes, they will not innovate.

3. Give individuals latitude to achieve the mission. If there is no latitude, be honest.

4. Allow individuals access to you to ask questions. Avoid taking over the project. Coach them to a good decision.

5. Make sure there are good plans behind important initiatives, including those that involve developing people.

Authentic caring is demonstrated through genuine relationships with the people the leader interfaces with and leads. These relationships have integrity at the root and are built on an ethical foundation. More to follow on the importance of integrity in leading others. The same with strengths. A good leader knows his/her strengths and looks to maximize these with those they lead. They also look to their people to fill in the gaps created by their lack of expertise in an area.

For more than a decade The Submarine Way has been guiding and partnering with organizations of all types and sizes to drive leadership through our patent published lens of inclusion. Our goal is simple, change our workplaces, communities, and schools forever. We have a better way, we know a better way and we have the results and the patent to back up its unique and powerful approach. Let's get a copy of this new book in everyone's hands.
