Ever wondered why Manchester gets more investment than Liverpool and why so many hotels and student flats are being built here? One of the most important answers sounds dull and might surprise you - it’s the price of office space. City leaders say Liverpool city centre is so short of office space that it’s damaging our ability to attract new jobs and investment to the city. Other cities have more top-class new “Grade A” space ready to use, but there’s very little here. Estate agents say rents aren’t high enough to encourage developers to build offices, as those builders can’t make enough money on the deals. Those developers do feel they can make money from other developments, including student housing schemes and hotels . That's why - to the frustration of many ECHO readers - there are so many of those schemes and so few office developments that create jobs. In fact, many old offices have been converted into homes or hotels, meaning … [Read more...] about Is THIS why Liverpool gets more jobs than Manchester?
Physicians quality care jobs
opinion Arthur "Tim' Garson Jr. Opinion contributor Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Jul 12, 2018 It's hard to think of a law that's been more controversial in the last decade than the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Yet as the country continues to endure bitter division over the ACA, one provision remains extraordinarily popular: the requirement that insurers cover those who are sick. Even in the thick of the Obamacare debates a decade ago, 80 percent of Americans agreed the federal government should require insurance companies to offer coverage to everyone, regardless of their pre-existing illnesses and conditions. As Americans prepare to vote in a midterm election where polls show health care is a top issue, they will need to decide whether they want to choose candidates who would permit discriminating against sick people and support undoing the progress we've made on one of the few policy issues where the country has managed to find consensus.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s physician Ronny Jackson on Thursday withdrew from consideration to head the Veterans Affairs department after allegations that he had been lax with prescription drugs and drank alcohol on the job, Reuters reported. The allegations, which Jackson categorically denied as false, had prompted the Senate to put a hold on his hearing for the job of leading the federal government’s second largest department. The upset was the latest chaotic personnel decision to rock Trump’s White House, which has been roiled by an unusually high number of firings and resignations. During his campaign, Trump had pledged to clean up the VA, which oversees healthcare and benefits for about 20 million military veterans, a constituency with considerable political clout. The agency has long been criticized for the quality of its care and the red tape that veterans encounter. Trump fired his first secretary, David Shulkin, in March after concerns about unauthorized … [Read more...] about White House doctor steps back from Trump veterans job after controversy

Bush administration.Trump left open the possibility during a news conference that Jackson would withdraw from a political process the president described as "too ugly and too disgusting."But Jackson, 50, met with Trump late in the day, and afterward a White House official said the doctor would "certainly not be railroaded by a bitter ex-colleague."The White House provided copies of Jackson's performance reviews with handwritten notes of effusive praise from former President Barack Obama and … [Read more...] about Trump nominee for veterans job digs in
