Wellington.scoop.co.nz » Migrant Nurses’ Wish List

WIS

Migrant Nurses’ Wish List for the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife As we enter 2020, the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, I would like to highlight my wish list as migrant nurses/internationally qualified nurses (IQN) continue to contribute services to the New Zealand healthcare system. Approximately 3 out of 10 (28.7% of 57,833) New Zealand nurses qualified overseas. Locally, I wish this would translate to safer nurse-patient ratios in all work settings, better pay and pay equity, equal professional development opportunities for IQNs, inclusion, and better communication and respect within and between diverse healthcare teams. Locally, I wish the government would invest more in nursing education and provide scholarships that IQNs could also access, in nurse-led and midwife-led services and appreciate that nurses and midwives, too, are central in primary health care.

Best Stocks for 2020: Make a Wish Upon Disney Stock’s Star

WIS DIS

It’s a presidential election year, the impeachment process will likely still be going and Wall Street is going to be wondering just how many new all-time highs the S&P 500 can make. However, while there may be shorter-term spikes in volatility and uncertainty in 2020, the longer-term social and economic trends that have been building and developing for years are going to continue to play out. Application software providers, like Adobe (NASDAQ:) and Salesforce (NYSE:) with monthly/annual subscriptions. And of course, media giants, like Disney (NYSE:). It used to be much more reliant on big, one-time product launches and movie releases. But it has been slowly building into a subscription model powerhouse during the past few years. So how does DIS leverage the subscription model? Live sports still attract a lot of eyeballs in this age of on-demand television, which enables DIS to still charge a premium from any provider that wants to include the network in its packages. However, DIS isn’t looking to simply sit back and collect regular revenue from other cable, satellite and streaming media providers.

Amazon, Wish, eBay called out for selling 'potentially deadly' items

AMZN EBAY +1 more AMZN EBAY WIS

The investigation, which was conducted by UK non-profit Electrical Safety First, found that of the 15 items that were tested, 14 failed UK safety tests. In the most extreme example, a hairdryer purchased on Wish's site set alight after Electrical Safety First tested what would happen if it restricted the airflow on the machine. Amazon has been strongly criticized for this in the past, especially as its marketplace - its network of third-party sellers which sell and distribute items through the Amazon network - continues to grow at a rapid rate. In a statement emailed to Business Insider, a spokesperson for eBay said that it "proactively" enforces its product safety policy and uses algorithms to stop unsafe products from being listed.

Wish Billionaire Peter Szulczewski Drops $15 Million in Bel Air

WIS

Uber’s Garrett Camp famously dropped $72.5 million in Beverly Hills, WeWork’s Michael Gross bought a $28 million Brentwood estate, and former Facebook COO Owen Van Natta nabbed a $10 million Santa Monica beach shack. And more continue to follow their lead. Last month, a brand-new Bel Air mansion sold for $15.3 million in what may have been an all-cash deal. The buyer is Peter Szulczewski, a newly-anointed tech billionaire who is co-founder and CEO of Wish, one of San Francisco’s hottest startups. It’s worth noting that although the property is technically located in Bel Air, this is nowhere near the ultra-plum “lower Bel Air” neighborhood — home to Jay-Z and Beyonce, among numerous other billionaires — but rather in a far-flung western corner that’s geographically much closer to Brentwood.

Wish, now valued at $11.2 billion, wants to deliver Chinese-made goods faster

AMZN WIS

Wish, now valued at $11.2 billion, wants to deliver Chinese-made goods faster. As Amazon (AMZN) and Walmart (WMT) invest millions in faster delivery, bargain shopping app Wish is raising money to build logistics in a similar effort to speed up delivery to its deal-hunting users. The Information previously reported that Wish planned to raise $300 million in the Series H. Founded in 2010 by Google veteran Peter Szulczewski and Yahoo veteran Danny Zhang (CTO of Wish who left the company in April), Wish has been known for its low-price points, wide selections and long wait times for packages that are sent from across the ocean. Despite the controversy over product quality and poor customer service, Wish says it has more than 80 million monthly active users and sold nearly 1 billion products in 2018. Like Amazon, which has been aggressively investing in one-day delivery, Wish also sees reducing shipping time as a priority. But it has a different end goal from the Seattle-based giant.
