Ill care at hospital, mounting pressure of medical insurance force mom to take her child out of hospital.

Emily's parents say they took their daughter out of the hospital after she contracted a bacterial infection in her right arm, which had to be amputated, and that they were pressured over health insurance and mounting medical bills, according to TODAY.

Officials at the hospital said they couldn't discuss Emily's medical treatment, but released a statement saying: "We steadfastly disagree with the assertions brought forth regarding the quality of care Emily received. ... Emily's health and well-being continues to be our primary concern."

Two weeks after a woman sneaked her 11-year-old daughter with leukemia out of a Phoenix hospital, the girl's parents say she is safe and under the care of doctors in Mexico.

"She's happy," Norma Bracamontes told TODAY. "She's getting better."

The girl, Emily Bracamontes, says she supports her mother's actions. "My mom's only trying to save my life," she said. "She doesn't want me to die in a hospital."

Wearing a hot-pink fuzzy hat, Emily said she has no regrets about leaving Phoenix.

"I wanted to get out," she told TODAY. "I was happy that I'm going back home to see my doctors in Mexico."

In late November, police released as surveillance video showing Bracamontes and Emily leaving Phoenix Children's Hospital, sparking a police search.

Before they got into a black van, the video shows Bracamontes and Emily walking into a hospital bathroom, where police say Bracamontes disconnected an IV from her daughter's heart catheter and changed her clothes. Police said the girl's life was at risk because the catheter wasn't properly sealed.

Emily's parents say they took their daughter out of the hospital after she contracted a bacterial infection in her right arm, which had to be amputated, and that they were pressured over health insurance and mounting medical bills, according to TODAY.

Officials at the hospital said they couldn't discuss Emily's medical treatment, but released a statement saying: "We steadfastly disagree with the assertions brought forth regarding the quality of care Emily received. ... Emily's health and well-being continues to be our primary concern."

Police, meanwhile, are still investigating and said that Emily's parents could face charges of child endangerment and abuse, TODAY reported.

"We have been unable to verify anything the family has said regarding medical treatment to Emily," the Phoenix Police Department said in a statement. "The family has been uncooperative. "

Emily is said to be in remission, and her parents say they have no plans to bring her back to the U.S.

Future of oil is bleak. By 2030, 95% of people may not own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry

A futurist and clean energy expert, Toni Seba, has predicted that electric vehicles would destroy the global oil industry after a decade. By 2030, 95% of people won't own private cars which would wipe off the automobile industry, he says.

Boeing and JetBlue Airways have announced they would begin selling a hybrid-electric commuter aircraft by 2022. Planned by start-up Zunum Aero, the small plane would seat up to 12 passengers and reduce travel time and cost of trips under 1,600 km.

PPF interest rate cut to 7.9% but are other investment options better? Here's a comparison

The Public Provident Fund (PPF) will now offer 7.9% but experts say it is still a good option for investors. Given that consumer inflation is down to 3.65%, the real rate of return of the PPF is a healthy 4.25%. 

"This is quite impressive for an option that offers assured returns," says Amol Joshi, Founder, PlanRupee Investment Service. "Investors should continue to take advantage of this long-term tax-free product," he adds. 

Even if you compare the PPF rate with the 10-year government bond yield, the scheme is attractive. "The 10-year bond yield is a better benchmark for PPF than consumer inflation," says Manoj Nagpal, CEO, Outlook Asia Capital
Currently, the 10-year bond yield is around 6.8% and the PPF at 7.9% makes it for a premium of 110 basis points. "Historically, the average premium has been around 75 bps. So, the PPF investor is today earning a higher real return," says Nagpal. Even so, some investors may be feeling disappointed by the cu…
