November 22, 2022

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will use the December 2022 filing date chart. Due to increased demand, a worldwide deadline for EB-2 final action has been established. China EB-3 will advance three months to September 1, 2018, and India EB-3 will advance one month to August 1, 2012.

The US State Department has released its December 2022 Visa Bulletinoutlining priority deadlines by country that govern the availability of immigrant visas and the flow of adjusting status applications and immigrant consular visa applications and filings and approvals.

What does the December 2022 Visa Bulletin say?

The bulletin includes both a table of visa application filing dates and a table of application final action dates. The first indicates when applicants for immigration can file their applications for adjustment of status or immigrant visa, and the second indicates when adjustment of status or immigrant visa applications can be approved and residency permanent granted.

Each month, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) chooses which chart they will track. For December 2022, USCIS will follow the Table of Filing Dates for Employment-Based (EB) Filings for Adjustment of Status. This means that individuals wishing to file adjustment of status petitions with USCIS in December 2022 should use the filing date table below.

Filing dates Deadlines

To be eligible to file for an EB adjustment in December 2022, a foreign national must have a priority date earlier than the date listed below for their preference category and country. A “C” indicates that the category is common and that applications can be filed regardless of the applicant’s priority date. The indication of a date for any category indicates that only applicants whose priority date is earlier than the date indicated may file their applications.

Wajir Governor Ahmed Abdullahi when he reported a shipment of medical supplies. [Courtsey, Twiiter]

Wajir County has halted recruitment of new employees until the ongoing human resources audit is completed.

Governor Ahmed Abdullahi said his administration has hired a team of technical experts who are working with the help of the personnel management directorate and county civil service board to help carry out the exercise.

Abdullahi, who has made a return as head of the county, said the audit will be carried out across all departments and will include but not be limited to directors, deputies and deputy directors to determine if they have the requirements. academic qualifications required and appropriate for the respective. works.

The governor issued a stern warning to people with forged or forged documents, adding that they would not be spared if found guilty.

“We have 6,000 county employees and 1,500 of them have been discovered as ghost workers. I don’t hire anyone; the board is not recruiting anyone. We have frozen recruitment of new employees until we clean up the workforce,” he said on Tuesday at the launch of a 69 million shillings worth of medical items. .

There have been allegations that many people have been put on the county payroll to earn salaries without even having employment or contract letters, while others, who have been procedurally employed , have not been rshow up for work over the years.

As such, the audit exercise, the governor said, will seek to establish whether they were lawfully employed.

He regretted that Wajir turned into a recruiting office hampering the provision of essential services to residents.

Governor Abdullahi, however, denied any witch hunts, calling the exercise an attempt to get rid of the ghost worker workforce so he could meet his service delivery priorities.

“I just want to issue a strong warning to county employees taking pay without setting foot in the office, that they would be treated legally and procedurally as set out in the HR manual,” he said.

He added: ‘It is very unfair for one doctor to spend a full day in the hospital while another is comfortable at home, but they are both on salaries as county employees. .”

Abdullahi said that as a result, public funds have been channeled into dependent salary payments of essential services.

He revealed that 78% of the funds were spent on employee salaries, leaving a meager 22% for development purposes.

“No one will be favored in this exercise. Even if a member of my own family earns income without working, he will be removed from the county workforce. If you’re on the payroll, work, show up in the office, earn rightly and no one will be victimized,” he said.

Abdullahi, who is nearing his first 100 days in office, had vowed to tackle what he called a bloated workforce that needs urgent reform to enable the prioritization of development programs.

  • AUDUSD pulls back from 100-DMA, remains under pressure around intraday low as of late.
  • Bulls take a breather amid light calendar, China Covid fears.
  • Disappointing US data and risk-positive headlines from Beijing previously favored the bulls.
  • RBA Minutes Australian jobs report awaits further momentum, bulls set to keep reins amid Fed Pivot talks.

AUDUSD pulls back from a two-month high at 0.6680, triggering a two-day uptrend, as market participants look for more clues to extend the previous weekly rise in Monday’s first Asian session . In doing so, the Aussie pair also portrays the cautious mood ahead of key data/events in Australia and the US in a light calendar.

Even so, China’s latest easing in coronavirus-related activity restrictions and positive offers for the struggling reality sector join talk of easy rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve (Fed) to keep the hope of AUDUSD buyers. That said, the Communist Party of China (CCP) has announced further easing of Covid controls and measures taken to ease the pain of the real estate market through a 16-point plan that includes more loans, allowing delays in bond payments and a change in home loan limits. .

It should be noted that Friday’s US data joined recent dovish comments from Fed officials in keeping AUDUSD buyers hopeful. That said, the early reading of the University of Michigan Consumer Confidence Index for November fell to 54.7 from 59.5 for market expectations and 59.9 for the previous reading. Recently, Fed Governor Christopher Waller said the Fed could start considering moving forward at a slower pace.

On the contrary, Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) policymakers have openly pledged to be ready for easy rate hikes, which in turn keeps AUDUSD buyers chained. High virus numbers from China over several months, as well as geopolitical fears from this week’s Group of 20 Nations (G20) meeting in Bali are also likely to challenge buyers of the pair.

In the midst of these games, US actions remained firmer even though the bond market holiday limited yesterday’s moves. However, the return of full markets appears to have challenged AUDUSD buyers lately, as S&P 500 futures are posting small losses at the time of writing.

Thereafter, a meeting between US President Joe Biden and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping will be of immediate importance, given the geopolitical tensions. However, the RBA The minutes will be followed closely before the Aussie jobs report as policymakers ready for easy rate hikes. The likely pullback, however, remains elusive if the U.S. Retail sales join the recently disappointing consumer-centric data from the United States.

Technical analysis

Although the 100-DMA caps the AUDUSD’s immediate rise near 0.6700, the pair’s sellers remain off the table unless we witness a clear downside break of the early October high. around 0.6550.

How you – and your patients – can benefit from medical technology

Physicians have a growing set of tools at their disposal. Medical technology affects healthcare systems, patient care and treatment, and public health. By understand the medical technology available todayphysicians will be able to put the technology – and its benefits – to work for the patients who need it most.

Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI-powered platforms can help with everything from administrative tasks to predicting future disease complications to diagnosing genetic disorders in newborns.

Wearable technology and “captured” tools: Wearable devices track and measure data and can alert patients and their physicians to important health events, inside and outside of hospital settings.

Digital Therapy (DTx): DTx is used for many conditions, including mental health issues and recovery from opioid use disorder, for example. These are evidence-based, FDA-approved treatments that doctors can prescribe to treat a variety of chronic conditions.


Do independent docs have it better?

What are the advantages and disadvantages to practice medicine on your own?

Medscape surveyed more than 740 independent U.S. physicians about the pros and cons of their jobs, satisfaction with their income and work-life balance, job security, feelings about government agency regulations, their future career plans and other key topics.

Nine out of 10 independent doctors said they had valuable advantages over their peers who work for health systems, according to the Independent Doctors report: Is it worth being your own boss?

Benefits: Respondents said they had considerable autonomy, were in control of their own productivity, had no company-set productivity goals, and could influence their revenue growth .

The inconvenients : Respondents said they had to manage staff, help run a business and deal with more government regulations and that their income could flatten out or decline at any time.

Understanding Your Risks with COVID-19 Waivers (Blog)

The COVID-19 pandemic is easing and with it certain regulations that may apply to healthcare facilities.

Some new regulations remain in place, such as those related to telemedicine, but others may have already ended or will expire soon, which could cause problems for your practice.

Health care providers should know which is which and confirm that they have understood the waivers or changes in law that they previously relied on.

Stark’s Law: Otherwise known as the Physician Self-Referral Act, it generally prohibits physicians from referring Medicare patients to an entity in which the physician or an immediate family member has a financial interest. State and federal regulators have temporarily waived some of the law’s regulations under COVID-19; this waiver remains in effect.

Medicare Anti-Markup Payment Limitations (AMPL) Rule: Some physicians mistakenly believed that the Stark Law waiver also applied to AMPL. This is not the case, and physicians may have an obligation to identify and return payments to Medicare or other payers if they act as if this is the case.

Melbourne-based Kiandra IT has created an online jobs platform to help people with disabilities find jobs.

Kiandra was selected by Get Skilled Access (GSA), which was founded by former wheelchair tennis player and Australian of the Year Dylan Alcott, to build the “Field” site.

According to Kiandra, Field was built “in a way that other venues hadn’t properly approached before” and was led, designed, delivered and maintained by people with disabilities.

“Building software for accessibility at this level is about putting the people we represent first,” said Kiandra co-founder Martin Cooperwaite.

“The Field must support a range of user access needs while being accessible to those who would maintain the system over the long term.”

Rights activists in a program called for taking the necessary steps to ensure education and employment for people with disabilities (PwD), who make up more than 9% of the total population.

Most people with disabilities are poor and need help to improve their condition. Bangladesh would not be able to achieve the SDGs if they remained neglected because the SDGs mainly focused on leaving no one behind, they said at a seminar titled “Celebrating Membership to the Marrakesh Treaty and the way forward” at the auditorium of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics at Agargaon in the capital.

The Visually Impaired People’s Society (VIPS) and the Manusher Jonno Foundation (MJF) jointly organized the event on Saturday.

All structures and public transport should also be made accessible to them to guarantee their rights, they added.

Supreme Court lawyer Musherraf Hossain Mazumder, adviser to VIPS, said disabled people are now committing suicide due to unemployment. He urged the authorities concerned to take the necessary measures to solve the problem.

Saidul Huq, Executive Director of the Organization for the Development of Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind (BERDO), stressed the need to build a rights-based and discrimination-free society that can guarantee the rights of all.

In her speech, Shaheen Anam, Executive Director of Manusher Jonno Foundation, said that it is the constitutional duty of the state to uphold the rights of the backward part of society.

The event was informed that Bangladesh had ratified the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) “Marrakesh Treaty” to facilitate access to published works for the blind, visually impaired or those unable to read printed.

Refugees receive training from Global Impact Initiative (GII) (Courtesy of Global Impact Initiative)

With two new MetroRapid Lines is expected to enter service towards the end of 2023 as part of Connect Project, Subway Cap must take on more pilots and mechanics. To that end, the transit company in October announced a partnership with the Austin-based organization Global Impact Initiative (Gii) to provide training opportunities for the city’s refugee population.

“Deals like this are important to us as an agency because it’s a priority to help serve the community, however we can. This deal is about more than just growing our team; it’s also an opportunity to support our community and help our new residents who may find themselves in a vulnerable situation find secure employment and help them build a strong foundation in our area,” said a spokesperson for Cap Metro in an email, adding that it was the first refugee hiring program in the agency’s history.

As part of the program, Gii, which provides education and workforce development opportunities to underserved communities around the world, will offer an entry-level driver training course so that trainees can receive a commercial driver’s license. And Cap Metro will seek to hire these interns at rates starting at $22 per hour. Founder and Executive Director of Gii Anjoum Malik noted in an October 14 press release announcing the partnership that many refugees already have skills that could benefit Cap Metro.

While Cap Metro has recently struggled to get enough operators and mechanics to operate its bus routes, it now has adequate front-line staff, according to the spokesperson. However, he is still looking to hire to increase service levels in the future and for Project Connect – he previously estimated a need for over 100 bus operators for the new east-west exhibition center and north-south Pleasant Valley MetroRapid directions.

Gii Vice President of Operations Shawn Smith said in an email that the nonprofit is currently working to formalize partnerships with transit agencies across the country. Smith emphasized the dual importance of providing employment for the refugee population. “The transition to meaningful full-time employment is an important step for refugees in two ways. First, it provides constant access to resources allowing families to be independent. Secondly, there is tremendous pride that comes with being self-sufficient, in addition to being active members of their new communities,” he said.

Gii currently works primarily with Afghan and Ukrainian refugees, but Smith added that they have also helped Bosnian and Iranian populations. They also have a number of Austin-based partners, including Austin Jews for Refugees, Muslim Community Support Services, and Central Texas Food Bank.

“It’s really a win-win situation,” said Bob Ewigleben, director of Gii’s commercial driver’s license program, in the press release. “A victory for refugees and members of other underserved communities seeking economic independence, and a victory for transportation companies in desperate need of skilled commercial vehicle drivers.”

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August last year, restrictions on women’s human rights have become a global concern following which a women’s group staged a protest in Kabul to express their concerns about the continued effective ban on female students older than 6th grade and about female employment, TOLONews reported.

The protesters called on the Taliban to work for women and allow girls above sixth grade to learn, as the organization’s rule has only deepened poverty in the country.

“We call on the United Nations and the international community to pay attention to us and save women from these violations of their rights,” said Marghalare, a former interior ministry employee.

Due to lack of employment and Taliban atrocities, Afghan women have become tragic victims as education is limited. The women protesters staged a demonstration and showed their school documents in protest, and demanded jobs and an education from the government.

“The document we have in our hands is useless because we are all at home and have no work,” said Shokorya, a protester, TOLOnews reported.

After the Taliban took control of Afghanistan on August 15, 2021, they immediately began rolling back the rights of women and girls. Women started protesting in the streets from the first week in power of the Taliban, despite the grave risks they faced.

According to Human Rights Watch, the Taliban response was brutal from the start, beating protesters, disrupting demonstrations, and detaining and torturing journalists covering the protests. The Taliban have also banned unauthorized demonstrations. Over time, abusive Taliban responses have escalated, with a particularly heavy-handed response to a January 16 protest in Kabul, when Taliban members threatened, intimidated and physically assaulted protesters, using pepper spray and devices. electric shock.

Notably, the human rights situation in Afghanistan has deteriorated since the collapse of the Afghan government and the return to power of the Taliban in August last year.

Although fighting in the country has ended, serious human rights violations continue unabated, particularly against women and minorities. In addition, the continued spike in food prices in the country has become a new challenge for Afghans. Within a year, food prices nearly doubled, Khaama Press reported.

On October 29, the Bangladesh-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce and Industry held the third “LegalTalk” seminar on employment issues at the BMCCI Secretariat titled “Employment: Rights and Obligations”.

Lawyer Anita Ghazi Rahman, founder of the Legal Circle, and lawyer Pushpo Rahman, senior partner of the Legal Circle, discussed the topics, read a press release.

BMCCI President, Syed Almas Kabir, welcomed the participants and introduced the speaker.

This seminar was organized for those who want to understand and facilitate the legal rights of employees to be better employers than others, he says.

In her discussion, Advocate Anita Ghazi Rahman mentioned the bluntness and opacity of Bangladeshi business personalities on labor law and employment rights and obligations and insisted on knowledge of this issue to maintain a subtle and tranquil commercial environment.

Participants were pleased with this very interactive session and described this undertaking as an eye-opening and far-reaching initiative.

At the end of the program, participants received a certificate for their active participation in the seminar.

BMCCI aims to recognize the legal issues in the simulated scenario to its members to pacify the growth of their business and has come up with the LegalTalk series to spread the legal issues among their members.
