Private fund managers and investors are on high alert as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposes an aggressive new regulatory agenda. Its new draft rules have been described as a “sea change” and are intended to enhance regulation and protect investors in private funds. But do those investors need or want this protection? What are the broader policy issues? And what should fund managers and investors plan for? Join host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with two of the firm's thought leaders on these subjects — Elizabeth Shea Fries and Stephen Cohen.Liz is the managing partner of Sidley's Boston office, global co-leader of the Investment Funds practice, and a member of the firm's Executive Committee.

California's regulatory environment is prohibitive, especially for production Agriculture which uses a lot of water and works on historically slim margins. So, what's an enterprising California farm operator to do when faced with the challenge of preserving the family ranch in light of exploding regulatory costs?

War doesn't always look like it used to, with just tanks, missiles, ships, and planes. It also takes place online, and observers in the West are becoming increasingly aware of the need to increase cyber defense capacities as authoritarian states like Iran and China rapidly advance. This poses important questions for democracies around the world: do open societies have more difficulty in mobilizing cyber defense than closed societies? And if so, why and what can be done to course correct? In this week's podcast we're pleased to feature special guest John Arquilla, co-founder of the Defense Analysis Department at the Naval Postgraduate School, and author of “Bitskrieg: The New Challenge of Cyberwarfare." In their discussion, Amsterdam and Arquilla explore these questions and discuss Arquilla's condemnation of U.S. leadership's lack of mobilization towards cyber defense. Arquilla argues that democracies have become canaries in a coal mine, as their reliance on cyber warfare mechanisms have been delegated to the market-based solutions of Silicon Valley and Boston area tech firms; and watered down legislation in government. Can the U.S. adopt a more nimble and effective approach to cyber warfare - or will authoritarian regimes continuing their rapid advances to gain the upper hand in cyber in the long run? Have a listen to the show and get in touch to let us know your thoughts.
The crypto market has been in turmoil for over six months, with prices dropping steadily. It's not looking good now, but things are set up nicely to benefit the Elite.

This Livestream covers the four to five signs that point to the Banksters having taken over the crypto market as their plan was all along.
2010 does not seem that long ago. It's hard to believe we're at Monitor Mondays broadcast No. 500 since then.But then again, let's look at all we've seen change. Medicare started out with a one-midnight expectation for inpatient reimbursement. Then the Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) moved in, showed us all the errors of our ways, and demonstrated that unrestrained denials could overwhelm the appeal system.Then we got the two-midnight rule, which, oddly enough, seemed to make sense. It carved off a bunch of inpatient stays, but also curtailed denials. Then we saw the phase out of the inpatient-only list. But wait – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reversed course and decided not only to keep the inpatient-only list, but to add stuff back on to it. The one constant since 2010, via more than 500 live broadcasts,has been Monitor Mondays, bringing cutting-edge analysis of regulatory changes and providing reliable information for you to meet payor challenges. We're looking forward to another 500 episodes. And we're sure the payors will help us with new material.Additional segments to be included in this landmark broadcast will include the following:The RAC Report: Healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel, partner at the law firm of Practus, will report the latest news about auditors, including the Recovery Auditors (RAs).Monday Focus: Mary Beth Pace, vice president of care management at Trinity Health, will report on outpatient status for those who have undergone surgery.Risky Business: Healthcare attorney David Glaser, shareholder in the law offices of Fredrikson & Bryon, will join the broadcast with his trademark segment.Monday Rounds: Dr. Andrew Markiewitz, substituting for Dr. Ronald Hirsch, will make his Monday Rounds.Legislative Update: Former CMS official Matthew Albright, now chief legislative affairs officer for Zelis, will report on current healthcare legislation.

3 Federal Agencies and Regulatory Overreach Mark and Vec discuss the tendency of agencies to address problems they were not set up to tackle. 4 The Supreme Court's Unprecedented Leak A Supreme Court draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito that was leaked and published on Monday by Politico indicated the court might be preparing to overturn Roe v.

Last fall, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco announced significant changes to Department of Justice policies on corporate criminal enforcement, including the use of monitors, review of prior misconduct, and cooperation. As Monaco stated, "This is a start -- and not the end -- of this administration's actions to better combat corporate crime." These changes and the Administration's formation of a Corporate Crime Advisory Group signal a shift in DOJ's commitment to ferreting out corporate crimes and more rigorous enforcement activities. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has announced its own intention to conduct faster investigations, bring bigger cases, and to seek harsher penalties. In his first speech on enforcement, SEC Chairman Gary Gensler quoted the agency's first Chair, Joseph Kennedy, to summarize his own agenda: "The Commission will make war without quarter on any who sells securities by fraud or misrepresentation." Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Rostin Behnam, has also requested that Congress expand the CFTC's enforcement powers and professed the agency's readiness to serve as the "primary cop on the beat" for cryptocurrency markets.Former DOJ prosecutor Luke Cass and Britt Biles, who held former senior legal roles at the SEC, the White House, and the U.S. Small Business Administration will explain these policy shifts and discuss the risks for corporate America under this new era, additional priority enforcement areas for the Administration, and what these new policies mean for the future of corporate compliance.Featuring:-- Luke Cass, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson-- Britt Biles, Partner, Womble Bond Dickinson-- Moderator: Nicholas Marr, Assistant Director, Practice Groups, The Federalist Society

Like fine wine, problem lists age very well. Too well, in fact.Such lists can remain in place for months, even years, without being updated. And questions can lead to conflicts and errors.Too often, problem lists simply languish, with unchanged patient encounter information. Moreover, even when a problem does appear on the problem list, it doesn't necessarily signal that the provider addressed the issue during the patient encounter.During the next live edition of Monitor Mondays, Dr. Andrew Markiewitz, a physician advisor and member of the RACmonitor editorial board, will delve deep into the root causes of problems in the problem list.Other segments will include the following:The RAC Report: Healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel, partner at the law firm of Practus, will report the latest news about auditors, including the Recovery Auditors (RAs).SDoH Report: Tiffany Ferguson, a subject matter expert on the social determinants of health (SDoH), will report on the news that's happening at the intersection of healthcare regulations and the SDoH.Risky Business: Healthcare attorney David Glaser, shareholder in the law offices of Fredrikson & Bryon, will join the broadcast with his trademark segment.Monday Rounds: Ronald Hirsch, MD, vice president of R1 RCM, will be making his Monday Rounds with another installment of his popular segment.Legislative Update Cate Brantley, a legislative analyst at Zelis, will report on current healthcare legislation.

This is the audio from RQM+ Live! #53, recorded 21 April, 2022. Please note we have not listed the questions asked during the show in this description because there were too many to fit! You can still see a list of them on the video recording page after filling out the form on our website here. Our Live! discussion topic "PSURs - Ready, Set, Go!" on 24 February had record-breaking attendance, which means scheduling a sequel is a no-brainer. The discussion between the audience and our expert panelists was extremely engaging and could have gone for hours, so we're back for part 2. It's obvious that industry is very concerned with the upcoming MDR and IVDR deadlines related to PSURs and unfortunately, there is still a lot of uncertainty and confusion. We're here to help! In part 2 of this discussion, we'll begin with audience questions we didn't get to last time, including: Do we need the IMDRF coding only for reportable cases or for all complaints coming in and include in the PSUR? Do you have any implementation tips to consider across the device lifecycle? What should we think about when building our maintenance program? If we have not sold anything commercially, but we do have a system out for clinical study use, do we need to create a PSUR? For legacy devices that are no longer sold, therefore not intended to be MDR certified, is the intent that the PSUR/PMSR just be available upon request or does it need to be proactively submitted to the last Notified Body that certified the device? Will the PSUR guidance define the length of the reporting period? What type, method and level of trending is expected in the PSUR? What data should you use for similar devices - literature, registries, any other? Panelists: Amie Smirthwaite, BEng, Ph.D. – Senior Vice President, Intelligence & Innovation Carlos Galamba, MSc – Vice President of IVD Intelligence & Innovation Nancy Morrison, RAC – Executive Director, Regulatory & Quality Consulting Services Celeste Maksim, Ph.D., RAC – Chief of Staff - Stay informed: Subscribe to our blog Follow us on LinkedIn - About RQM+ RQM+ is the leading international provider of regulatory, quality, and clinical consulting services for medical device and diagnostics manufacturers.

While COVID-19 sharpened global understanding of the importance of efficient medicines review and regulation, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) has been systematically assessing national medicines regulatory authorities in the Americas since 2010. "It's inevitable that we reflect on what happened during the pandemic but also that we take that as an enormous opportunity to move forward in a way that can take the lessons out of regulation in a time of crisis to prevent crisis," suggests PAHO Medicines Health & Technologies Unit Chief Analía Porrás in this conversation with Susan Zavala Coloma (DIGEMID, Peru) and Global Forum Regional Editor for Latin America Cammilla Gomes (Roche). “The idea of the assessment is not just to showcase what's going well in a regulatory authority but, with the regulatory authority, to decide on the priorities for opportunities for improvement. We gained the trust of our regulatory authorities and our other stakeholders like the industry; with that trust, the authorities know that we're going to push them to be their best.”
With the growth of Medicare hospice services comes expanded oversight on claims and care quality.

Piers Ridyard interviews Patrick Hansen, Head of Strategy & Business Development at Unstoppable Finance, the wallet that aims to bring DeFi to the masses, in this episode of the DeFi Download. Patrick analyses why the EU should fully embrace crypto and Web3, as well as the current regulatory environment, which is stifling progress. The Unstoppable Finance team is developing a DeFi investing app, attempting to natively integrate DeFi applications into a mobile app that is extremely simple to use, allowing people to experiment with various protocols and applications. They're currently working on their first product, which they hope to launch in two months. Patrick has previously been heavily involved in crypto policy, particularly EU crypto policy, and has been a vocal advocate for reversing, or at the very least providing strong advice on, Europe's current course, and what he refers to as Europe's "third way." [1:01] Where did the concept of Europe's “third way” originate, and where does Patrick see Europe's problems arising?[3:14] The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) empowers users to control their data, regardless of where it is stored. Users have the right to ask a company what information they have on them and to request that they delete that information if they no longer want them to have it. As a result, businesses' perspectives on data are shifting. They face significant liability if they do not exercise extreme caution when handling user data. What role does crypto play in this principle? To put it another way, how does crypto fit into the larger concept of user sovereignty?[7:10] There may be a separation between object ownership and metadata. As a result, there is a great deal of personal information on ledger. How does Patrick perceive the relationship between GDPR and publicly accessible on-ledger, on-chain data that cannot be deleted?[10:12] In light of anti-money laundering regulations, VASP rules, and travel rules, the crypto world convinced regulators that chain analytics is beneficial. However, chain analytics provides more user data than the banking system requires. What are Patrick's thoughts on privacy, privacy coins, and privacy regulation? Is he convinced that they have a place in the EU?[17:09] Patrick discusses how he thinks European anti-money laundering regulations should be applied to cryptocurrency.[18:05] What necessitates the exchange of information between two financial institutions? What harm are they trying to avoid, and where is the evidence that information sharing truly prevents it?[25:01] Is the European Union anti-crypto? What arguments could persuade the European Union to reconsider its stance on cryptocurrency regulation?[28:05] Patrick delves deeper into why the EU should go all-in on cryptocurrency from an economic and financial standpoint.[31:25] Is the decline in European companies' equity share over the last 20 years due to a regulatory environment that has rendered Europe uncompetitive?[33:04] Patrick responds to Piers' argument that if Europe is serious about crypto, it needs to go beyond parity and become more aggressive, as well as to return to the question of what we are attempting to prevent and how we can actually prevent it.[38:02] Regulatory guidelines are frequently unclear. The 5th EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive (AML5D) serves as an example.[40:05] A brief overview of the work of Unstoppable FinanceFurther resourcesWebsite: unstoppable.fiPatrick's Twitter: @paddi_hansenUnstoppable Finance Twitter: @UnstoppableDeFi

We first look at NCLC's legislative priorities, which include a 36% national interest rate cap and credit reporting reform, and the prospects for Congressional action. Ms. Saunders then provides NCLC's perspective on areas of potential CFPB regulatory action including overdraft and other fees labeled “junk fees” by the CFPB, earned wage access programs, buy-now-pay later products, income share agreements, the use of artificial intelligence in underwriting and collections, fraud in peer-to-peer payment services, the use of unfairness to challenge non-credit discrimination, and mandatory arbitration. Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation.

VW'S NEW GROWTH PLAN WILL REDUCE SUPPLY CHAIN VULNERABILITY - Volkswagen Group CEO Herbert Diess said the automaker's new growth plan would aim to reduce its vulnerability to the effects of global conflicts, such as supply chain disruption and rising prices, by divesting more power to its regions and brands. - Diess did not specify which political events he was referring to, but automakers have been hit hard by Russia's invasion of Ukraine as Western sanctions pushed up the price of energy and raw materials. - Diess said the automaker's board saw boosting its China business, growing software division Cariad and reorganizing its brand leadership structure as the most pressing issues facing the automaker. - "Our competitors are no longer called Mercedes-Benz, Toyota Motor Corporation or Stellantis, but Tesla, Foxconn, Apple, LG Electronics, Uber etc.," he said. Original Source : https://europe.autonews.com/automakers/vws-new-growth-plan-will-reduce-supply-chain-vulnerability THE RAM 1500 EV HAS 1 MAJOR ADVANTAGE OVER OTHER ELECTRIC TRUCKS - Last week, Ram CEO Mike Koval confirmed the Ram 1500 EV concept at the New York International Auto Show. Ahead of the 2024 release, the company plans to reveal or preview the electric truck sometime this year. Those who are a part of the Ram Real Talk Tour might get a preview of the EV even before that. - Koval said to Automotive News that Ram has a master plan to give customers the right design for the future lineup. - Electric trucks like the Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV Pickup will have been on the market for two years (if all goes as planned). The Chevrolet Silverado EV is slated for production in 2023, likely still beating the Ram by a whole year. - It can adjust based on customer feedback by releasing the Ram 1500 EV after the other trucks have been on the market for a bit. Ram will get to learn what people like and don't like and be able to modify certain things as necessary.

Automotive gross margins jumped to a record 32.9% with Tesla reporting gross profit of $5.54 billion in its main segment. Regulatory credits accounted for $679 million of automotive revenue for the quarter. - Revenue growth was driven in part by an increase in the number of cars Tesla delivered, and an increase in average sales prices, the company said in its shareholder deck. - “Our own factories have been running below capacity for several quarters,” Tesla said in its shareholder deck. The company did not give detailed guidance on deliveries going forward, but said it expects 50% annual growth on a multi-year basis, and warned that supply chain constraints are likely to continue through 2022. Musk also said that he believes inflation is worse than reported, and will continue through the year. Original Source : https://www.cnbc.com/2022/04/20/tesla-tsla-earnings-q1-2022.html HALF OF TESLAS PRODUCED IN Q1 HAD AN LFP BATTERY - At its Q1 2022 earnings call, Tesla announced that nearly half of all EVs it produced during the quarter were fitted with LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) battery cells that are free of nickel and cobalt. - While LFP batteries still use lithium, they come with a number of benefits over the standard NCA and NCM batteries that have traditionally been used in electric vehicles. - Tesla announced that almost half the cars that rolled out of its factories during the first three months of 2022 were equipped with LFP (lithium iron phosphate) batteries. In its official statement released on Wednesday, the company said that its decision to use the new technology is largely based on the fact that "diversification of battery chemistries is critical for long-term capacity growth." - The batteries are expected to help Tesla save on input costs and improve the bottom line as they are significantly cheaper than the Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide (NCA) cells Original Source : https://screenrant.com/tesla-increases-ev-production-lfp-battery/ TESLA SHOWS THAT ORDERS FOR ITS CARS SPIKED AFTER THE SUPER BOWL - his year's Super Bowl was packed with electric car ads from various automakers. Now that EVs are beginning to come into the mainstream, people are taking notice. Seeing major automakers supporting and promoting electric cars, not to mention their outstanding performance, gets people talking and searching the internet. - Apparently, it also moves people to order a Tesla. Original Source : https://insideevs.com/news/581249/tesla-orders-spiked-after-super-bowl-ads/ Tesla's solar business slumps as supply shortages take a toll - The company's solar energy deployments – including the solar roof made at Tesla's Buffalo plant – plunged by nearly half during the first quarter because of problems getting supplies from outside the United States. - Tesla said it installed 48 megawatts of solar energy generating capacity during the first three months of this year, 48% less than the 92 megawatts of solar capacity it installed during the same period last year. - Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he expects the supply shortages that affected the company's battery and solar energy businesses to be resolved. - Analysts believe Tesla has installed a relatively small number of solar roofs, so even a high percentage increase likely involves a modest number of additional deployments.
