Health: UnitedHealthcare To Open Medicare Centers In Walgreens In 2020

From a Becker’s Hospital Review online release:

UnitedHealthcare Medicare WalgreensThe purpose of the centers is to increase customers’ understanding of Medicare, match them with people who can talk with them about their benefits or new plans to enroll in, and access in-store annual wellness visits.

In addition, Walgreens and UnitedHealthcare are partnering for a new AARP Medicare Advantage Walgreens health plan. The health plan aims to deliver lower prescription drug costs to members, as many of the plans have $0 premiums and $0 copays on primary care visits, preventive care and some generic drugs. The 46 plans will be sold across 24 states.

 

Under a multiyear agreement, UnitedHealthcare will open 14 Medicare service centers in Walgreens stores across the U.S., the organizations said Nov. 25.

UnitedHealthcare, the health insurance arm of UnitedHealth Group, will operate Medicare service centers in Walgreens stores across five cities: Las Vegas, Phoenix, Cleveland, Denver and Memphis, Tenn. The centers are slated to open in January 2020.

New Camper Vans: 2020 “VanDOit LIV” Built Into All-Wheel Drive Ford Transit

From a New Atlas online review:

Now VanDoIt has capitalized on the launch of the 2020 Transit AWD to make its modular vans even more capable and versatile, letting owners option right up to a full-blown off-road, off-grid adventure vessel. It received a pre-production prototype from Ford and got to work rejiggering its modular conversion around the updated van, bearing fruit in the all-new LIV.

Earlier this year, Ford announced plans to launch an all-wheel-drive Transit as part of its updated 2020 US van lineup. That might seem like small product news, but it means that the US market will finally get a second factory AWD van to compete with the Mercedes Sprinter 4×4 that came over the Atlantic in 2015. It also means we can expect to see camper vans that look more like this one. The masters of modularity at VanDoIt become the first Americans to offer a camper van on the all-new Transit AWD, adding the LIV van as the second model in their lineup of super-flexible adventure vans. With a full selection of plug-and-play equipment, the LIV can flex between eight-seat, toy-hauling sleeper van and fully equipped multi-bed camper.

From a Variety.com online article:

NFL Logo ShieldFox has been selling 30-second ads in the event for between “north of $5 million” to as much as $5.6 million, Winter says. In contrast, CBS sought between $5.1 million and $5.3 million for a package of inventory in its 2019 broadcast of the event. Meanwhile, Fox is seeking between $2 million and $3 million for the most expensive advertising slots in its pre- and post-game coverage.

Madison Avenue is giving new consideration to the Super Bowl, the annual media extravaganza that it has seemed less excited about in recent years.

Fox Sports has sold all its available commercial inventory in Super Bowl LIV, slated to be broadcast from Miami Gardens, Florida, on February 2, 2020. It’s the first time in half a decade that the network showing the big game hasn’t had to go down to the wire to dispense with its high-priced ad slots, and suggests advertisers have found new appeal in the live telecast in an era when most of TV’s best-known programming has a significant component of on-demand viewership.

Photographers: Annie Leibovitz On Her Career, Andy Warhol, & Upcoming Show (Art Review)

From an Art Review online article:

Annie Leibovitz - I'm Just a Photographyer Art Review 2019I chose to call myself a portrait photographer because labels were always being thrown on me. When I was at Rolling Stone I was a ‘rock-and-roll photographer’, at Vanity Fair I was a ‘celebrity photographer’. You know, I’m just a photographer. I realised I wasn’t really a journalist. I have a point of view and, while these photographs that I call portraits can be conceptual or illustrative, that keeps me on the straight and narrow. So I settled on this brand called ‘portraits’ because it had a lot of leeway. But I don’t think of myself that way now: I think of myself as a conceptual artist using photography.

Art Review logoI remember going to the Factory in 1976 and watching Andy Warhol work. I’d been there before, earlier in the 70s, photographing Joe Dallesandro and Holly Woodlawn, and then Paul Morrissey. Warhol was a fixture of New York. It was just shocking when he died, because he was everywhere. I don’t know how he did it, but he was out at everything. You felt that if he was at a place you were at, then you were at the right place.

Warhol had things everywhere in the Factory – silkscreens all over the place, and tables of artwork – and things were always going on. I think Fran Lebowitz was there for Interview magazine, and [Warhol] was photographing the sisters from Grey Gardens [1975]. I was just a fly on the wall: there were people milling around doing all kinds of things, it was a pretty active place.

The Lives of Titian The GettyIn this episode, Getty assistant curator of paintings Laura Llewellyn discusses what these “lives” teach us about Titian and the artistic debates and rivalries of his time. All of these biographies are gathered together in Lives of Titian, recently published by the Getty as part of our Lives of the Artists series.
