Trolls – once devious, fearsome members of a mythical race – are now an unwelcomed reality in our modern innovation economy. more
The recent news about UnitedHealthcare of New England’s termination of physicians from its participating network for Medicare Advantage shows that more than just healthcare.gov has the potential to inflame public passions. more
Rhode Island’s economy is improving, but progress is slow and the impact of the 2008 Great Recession is still felt. more
To the editor: Your reporter did a terrific job (in a story in the Nov. 4 edition) ferreting out some of the nasty facts about the Wickford and Warwick train stations and the picture taken from the empty top floor of the Wickford “choo choo” station says it all. There are more cars at the Walmart next to Wickford station than will ever be at the station and every year the state pays an additional $721,659 to the owner on top of the $311 million to build these tombs. Wow! more
About 48 million Americans have hearing loss, and more than half of them are younger than 55. Most don’t wear hearing aids – not because they don’t need them but because they buy into the stigma that hearing loss is for the elderly.

Here at Johnson & Wales University, experiential education enriches our academic programs and provides a clear path to graduation. more
Over the years, the American health care system lost its way. Seduced by miraculous technology and pharmacology, and the billions of dollars that could be earned, our health care system geared up to perform miracles, mostly in the areas of traumatic injury or serious illness. The theme here is you get what you pay for, and as a result, today we can perform miracles for those who are seriously injured or ill. more
The Rhode Island insurance marketplace, HealthSource RI, is now up and running, thanks to a lot of great preparatory work. Tea Party ire as these “Obamacare” insurance marketplaces opened up around the country set off the government shutdown, a threat of U.S. default and considerable controversy. Rhode Island businesses now must sort through the confusion. I thank the local chambers of commerce, HealthSource RI, and the Rhode Island Association of CPAs, who’ve worked with the congressional delegation to sort fact from myth. more
