$2m Discipline Plan For School Gop Party – Katie Glueck – Politico.com

| AP Photo Close By KATIE GLUECK | 8/14/14 10:18 AM EDT The College Republican National Committee is making a major investment in a new field program targeting students on campus this fall, seeking to improve the GOPs standing with young voters following the partys disastrous election results in 2012. The group expects to spend close to $2 million at the outset as the program kicks off in September, with potentially more down the line, POLITICO has learned. The plan is to operate in at least 16 states, including Florida, Kentucky, New Hampshire, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio and other places with particular relevance in 2014 or 2016. They have hired three regional political directors and will also bring on 30 field representatives to put the initiative, titled Operation Red Campus, into motion. + reset President Barack Obama walloped Mitt Romney among young voters in 2012, prompting the CRNC to conduct its own research as to where its party went wrong, just as the Republican National Committee commissioned an autopsy report. ( Also on POLITICO: The ‘amnesty’ card: GOP launches 2014 border war ) Working off knowledge gleaned from its study, the CRNC is planning this year to keep its youth outreach efforts more campus-focused and more oriented toward swaying nonbase voters. In previous years, the group has instead focused heavily on connecting its activists with broader state and local political efforts off-campus. Our goal with this program is to not only speak to young people in relevant themes and relevant language, but to also be on campus and to be online, CRNC Chairwoman Alexandra Smith said. http://www.politico.com/story/2014/08/republican-college-national-committee-investment-109994.html

New research shows surge in student housing investment in the UK | Europe | News

Indeed, the latest data shows that in the first four months of the year, there have been transactions worth 950 million and this equates to over 17,000 beds, above the level seen in the same period of 2013 and well above previous years including 2012. The report points out that with a further 1.4 billion worth of investments on the market Savills expects to see activity in the region of 2.5 billion by the year end. According to Yolande Barnes, Savills director of world research, the lower volume http://www.kashmirlife.net/finance-ministers-nephew-to-take-on-him-in-assembly-polls-63549/ of investment activity in 2013 relative to 2012, some 33% less compared to only 18% fewer beds traded reflects an important trend. She also pointed out that 2013 saw a substantial increase in the number of deals in prime regional markets which were up 76%. This trend is likely to continue given the attractiveness of the student housing sector to investors, although investors will have to bear in mind some of the risks, she said. We saw some compression of blended average yields in the sector over the last year, with average initial yields falling slightly to 6.2% compared with 6.3% previously. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/08/13/bank-korea-cuts-key-interest-rate-to-225-percent-for-1st-time-in-15-months/ This reflects the increased competition for investments in prime London and super prime regional markets, explained Barnes. http://www.propertywire.com/news/europe/uk-student-housing-investment-201408149469.html

20 healthcare investment niches and 3 things to know: The evolution of healthcare as an investment area

The number of revenue cycle management companies focused on the outsourcing of billing and collections continues to increase. For each company that focuses on hospitals and health systems, there are dozens that focus on smaller specialties. The revenue cycle management companies run the gamut from full-service providers to companies providing software as a service. Revenue cycle management assists healthcare organizations with a number of processes, including coding claims using ICD-10. Although President Barack Obama signed the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 into law April 1, which delayed the nation’s switch to ICD-10 by at least a year, companies that provide software or services to assist healthcare organizations in the switch will continue to be greatly needed. Market research firm Black Book Rankings has projected that the $2.4 billion hospital revenue cycle management industry will experience double-digit increases in 2014. Revenue cycle management companies have provided attractive investment opportunities for strategic and financial buyers alike, according to a report from Duff & Phelps , a global provider of financial advisory and investment banking services. In 2010, there were already more than 150 revenue cycle management companies owned by private equity funds, ranging from Executive Health Resources (owned by ABRY Partners) to Transax International Ltd. (owned by Yorkville Advisors). http://www.beckershospitalreview.com/finance/20-healthcare-investment-niches-and-3-things-to-know-the-evolution-of-healthcare-as-an-investment-area.html
