House Wants to Increase Means Testing of Medicare Beneficiaries, Increasing Costs for 25% of Beneficiaries

Posted in Investing and Retirement on March 23rd, 2015

The House will soon vote on a bill to increase means testing of Medicare beneficiaries, increasing the number of brackets and boosting costs for 25% of beneficiaries.

Here's a quote from Dan McGrath from "How the Bipartisan Medicare Deal Will Hurt Retirees."

Clients had better rethink their retirement planning, especially those who are putting so much emphasis on the timing of taking Social Security and contributing everything to their traditional 401(k) or 403b plans.

        Department of Defense Releases Draft Plan to Establish Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research

        Posted in Legislation and Government Regulation, Open Access, Publishing, Self-Archiving on March 19th, 2015

        The Department of Defense has released a draft Plan to Establish Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research .

        Here's an excerpt from the SPARC announcement:

        It calls for all DoD-funded researchers to deposit final peer-reviewed manuscripts into the Department's "Defense Technical Information Center" (DTIC) repository. All articles will be made available to the public with no longer than a 12 embargo period. . . .

        The DoD draft plan doesn't elaborate on reuse rights for articles in the DTIC database, other than to note that articles will be subject to copyright and related license terms. Articles authored by DoD employees, however, will carry a full government use license. . . .

        One significant place where the DoD's draft plan differs from others released to date is in the area of compliance. The Department indicates that it plans to develop its own "compliance monitor," that will issue "certification tokens" to authors who submit articles and datasets to the DoD under the new policies. The current document doesn't provide any additional details, but the concept of tokens is an intriguing one.
