"Mary frank johnson. Welcome to technician. It's great to speak with you. Thanks so much. Peter i always enjoy talking with you. I do as well so please on the record at this point. I'm i'm as somebody who is a luminary ao space. You do not need a big introduction with my audience. I don't imagine but you are perhaps best known. As former editor in chief of cio magazine the the moderator of the cio leadership live broadcast which is just a phenomenal phenomenal series of interviews with with leaders in the tech space x os with a healthy dose of course of chief information officers as the name suggests and a prolific writer. Somebody who's wisdom. I know my team. And i have have gained mightily from across the years as well so i'm so pleased to to have this more formal conversation after many many informal ones with you okay. Well thanks very much peter. I we've got a lot of great stuff to talk about indeed indeed wipe. We begin at the beginning at least as relevant to the cio space. You're not somebody who grew up with immersed in technology You are somebody who The written word came the more easily to the dentist too many others. Perhaps and and you were focused on journalism. I wonder what was what was the genesis of your time In focusing your skills on the cio. Space okay thanks. Exxon question and i love telling the story because i think that it reflects so much of how many of the it leaders cio's that we both know today ended up in the positions that you know they were music majors or they majored in english literature and history and then they got really interested in data side of things for me. I had started out. I spent ten years at daily newspapers. In florida and ohio in washington state and i reported on everything from city and county commission beats to k twelve education to police even state politics when i was two bureau chief for gannett news service out in columbus ohio and then we were moving to the boston area in nineteen eighty nine. My husband was an atmospheric scientist and he was taking a job in cambridge and so naturally i went reached out to the boston globe and to the boston herald and the it was. Nobody was hiring. So i was. We were arriving in the boston area. And i had heard about a very vibrant technology publishing world here and so i had examined it somewhat and made some phone calls A lot of this was so far before the days of regular emails. And you know we weren't living on our phones. Then so i was just applying my reporter skills to it. And i ended up getting a copy of computerworld mailed to me and sat there. I remember sitting there in my living room in ohio looking through it and feeling somewhat reassured that i could understand about what have the stories were about And then on the drive from ohio to massachusetts. I basically grill my husband One side down the other about the computer industry. Because i was coming into it only knowing that ibm made typewriters and the rest of it was kind of a big mystery. But i had been using some of the very early unix. That was vi editor on unix. That you could use to do work on. He had some sun workstations and very early versions of sun and unix workstations at our house and so i used that a little bit. And i remember when i was in my interview for the computer job with The executive and executive editor in the editor chiefs of computerworld. I think they were very impressed. That i was referring to things like vi editor in youth so but computerworld at always hired. They hired reporters who could learn the beat. And i think that's pretty much the way almost everybody on the tech journalism side got into it. They were journalists bite training. Then they do. They dove into their beats. Because one of the things we discovered trying to hire people over the years if you try to higher in a technical person and hand the technology beat they wouldn't know the story angle with fell on them so it was really important if you were genuinely out there reporting And then i found enjoyed it. I just enjoyed it so much and by the time i was a couple years into my job at computer world when the boston globe was to interview people and hire all. But i wouldn't left for anything at that point it just it was such a. I just enjoyed the way. The story kept changing and advancing and moving forward.

S. M. which is a magnesium sometimes people have total remission as a result of that I done acupuncture I had done allergy testing to see if there was any basis for this depression in my physiology and everything had been ruled out high I also explored more shamanistic of the types of modalities there's a a medicine out of the rain forest that the pharmaceutical industry is recently patented called Campbell it's a frog medicine I had effectiveness with that but it was short lived because I kept re experiencing trauma and returning to a state of powerlessness and despair and I couldn't over come ten years of that pattern mean in my brain our brains become trained as we re experience states of mind and so a decade of re experiencing Jane on a daily basis that I couldn't get relief from much change my brain I believe into a state of depression and nothing could really cracks that and I had done you know I've been a long term meditator I had a deep connection with spirituality and nature and was really doing everything I could that the depression allowed me to do I was very debilitated and I just could not find any relief it was a hopeless case and I was living one day at a time just trying to prolong my life well so it really is a fight it's a struggle and it seems like you tried all of these different medications in all of these different techniques and so when did you hear about TMS therapy I started in neuroscience is such a fascinating field and I started doing a lot of research and neuroscience to understand the nature of trauma and how many of the symptoms of trauma are really our brain trying to heal itself from an injury a psychological injury and in my studies of neuroscience I came across.

"Emphasis is called I PSC or induced pluripotent stem cells yes he did many the innovators in this field are people just down the hall from me and at the center for Jenna medicine and she H. so it's been amazing to be able to not only see the piece of the past problems intent on not only on the clinical experts here but the scientific experts are also our colleague has been incredibly rewarding to work with people using also stem cell society facial development so with all of the innovation we mentioned before how cleft lip and palate is so very common do you think it'll continue to be very common in children or do you think that would solve this innovation we can see it become more rare right that's a much more difficult question because it is start you have to start then thing to think about the local issues of knowing about what would that mean about and see I guess you know so I think hopefully does all this research will translate into better prenatal diagnosis so we can better counsel families and that it puts him in touch with seems to repair it and it will help us that if we were to develop trucks like as you know it will eat the incidents may go down you know and then there's also a lot of excitement about gene editing and how to apply that as quickly to different medical problems I think for class because it's something that is very good but the standard kind I think it's probably not going to impact the common kind of food really devastating types of fish anomalies if we can catch them early with genetic testing and we can treat them with drugs I think that will be the holy grail yes absolutely it seems like there be a lot of future options I mean you mentioned several things that could yet there are being research in that are being developed to help these patients and you know like we said before it's all about the patience is all you know these families that are you seeking treatment and just wanting the best best for their child and so as a child continues to grow you mentioned that maybe around nine or ten they may have some issues with I think you said losing their teeth and having you know the the adult teeth having to go back in and so after that step as they continue to age is there anything else that the child would have to be aware of or maybe have to get additional treatments for you know a soda sometimes as teenagers that they may notice different things about to toss a sometimes the upper jaw surgery may be done to sort of moved in that case for a little bit another pretty common thing is sometimes at the patients they want their nose to be a certain way to the side of the nose sets over to class often is a little lower is the symmetry so sometimes we do a vinyl posse were or no set procedure to address that you know but that's not for every patient is really as a patient comes into his or her own yeah we find out what is said concerning for them and do the surgery that is appropriate for that patient's concerns I think it all kind of what I'm realizing is that a kind of circles back to what you said about the patient being able to just do anything that they want the you know the cleft lip and palate doesn't limit them in any sort of way and they can go on to kind of accomplish whatever goals that they want with proper treatment and you know just just just do whatever any other kid growing up can do right you got it Alexi that's exactly right and and the best thing then you know is is being pumped into the center that is totally patient focused that is about the baby but also the parents and making sure that they're well supported and that's why it's been such a published to work as China's who does it so well and have to collaboration with NGH with the fetal Kerr program so we can engage the family is that before the baby's born that's certainly the most important part especially families are feeling a little nervous or a little anxious I'm sure that you guys do a lot to to quell those feel fears and I'm sure that some kind of what's also taking place right now during July for a cleft in craniofacial awareness month and so for the rest of the month are you know is there any do you have any plans on promoting awareness is the hospital doing anything in particular or is it kind of just again circling back to spending more time your patience well it is a busy clinicians that's what I focus my time was so we're always doing that but in line with the green the word is out there I'm new to social media we've been on Instagram for the past few weeks trying to raise awareness

"The Boston Herald I'm joined today in the studio by Dr Carl Marcy is the newly appointed chief medical officer of companion amex a Boston based digital health tech company thank you for joining us doctor Marcy thanks for having me Alexi I'm excited to talk to you today yes absolutely and we're excited to to talk to you we're going to talk about technology but also behavioral health and mental health I think first what did you tell the listeners a little bit about a little bit about companion an accent what it is sure so containing a Max the M. extends for mental health or mobile health and we like to think of it as a system or a platform for helping patients who are suffering from mental health working with their providers to have the right care at the right time for the right person so what it is is a system that has three components the first component is a patient centred app that patients can download on recommendations from their provider and that collects information the second component is our cloud a I'd wear those data points we clicked off the phone or transformed into for symptoms of mental health and then the third component is a clinician dashboard and this is really important because it allows clinicians to visualize and see the same types of data that their patients are getting and that really informs their health office tastic okay so the three different parts I'm I know that the A. I. artificial intelligence and voice analytics plays a huge role that technology is just kind of exploding right now in all facets not even just in health but kind of everywhere and so just how does the technology work and how was it developed the trick so there really are four key pieces of information we're collecting so let's start with what we call passive measures to our passive measures are your call log your text log in your geo location so we're not interested in who your calling and in fact everything's encrypted and we have a hippa compliant very secure platform but we are interested in unique numbers and the call volume and really the diversity of people you were calling and texting and then from a geo location perspective we're interested in your patterns of moving around so those are what we call our passive measures and we're continuously collecting those and then we have one we call active measure and that's really the voice and it's really important to understand that we're not analyzing what you're saying but how you're saying how you're saying it so these are what we call voice features so you speak into the app minimum once a week minimum for ten seconds and then we take that way file and we extract the features so turns out when when people are depressed they speak with a lot of energy and their harmonics have a particular signature to them and when we're depressed we speak a little softer and we can measure that with a high degree of accuracy so we take those those four sets of data and as I mentioned before that goes into the cloud and then importantly they get automatically transformed into symptoms of mental health that any provider would understand your mood their levels of interest energy and social connection and that's really the the driver of the engineer we're talking about an objective behavioral biomarker which is really exciting because that doesn't exist right now in the house that's incredible all the data that's collected in all those different ways especially with the voice analytics you bring up a great point that I think anybody can understand is when you're feeling different moods your voice is changing and so on I know you guys are using that to identify behavioral triggers that can result in in a mental health episode and so when you identify those behavior triggers what happens at that point yes you you also asked how do we develop the system and very importantly what we did is we looked at a population of patients who were already identified as having mood and anxiety disorders and we used a very rigorous interview process it's call the skit it's the structured clinical interview for DSM and it's the really the gold standard that pharmaceutical companies and large research trials used in order to understand and get a common understanding of what patients mental health there are like and then we allow people to use the app and we collected a whole lot of different signals including the four I mentioned but but others like accelerometer data how much is the phone moving around and other parameters are they turning it on and off or they logging in and we found that these four channels really mapped on the best two things that providers care about your move your interest your energy in your social connection and the more research we did the more we found that the models that we build we're very consistent across studies and we're very discriminant in terms of identifying people who were trending in to a mental health episode and that's really important because you want to intervene before people get sick and not wait until they're already sick absolutely and one third of patients are using the app how have the help of patients responded to that I think now it is some people might be a little cautious of an app that's you know paying very close attention to what they're doing but also it seems as though it can be very helpful so how was the experience been with the app and the patients who are using it yeah that's a great question one of the challenges with all health care apps are that people start using them and then it falls off fairly quickly after and I think there's a couple reasons for that I think one sometimes these apps are ACCC asking too much of people hi there too demanding and I think to they're often used in isolation I I want to try this out but someone may be recommended I downloaded and I'm working on it two things differentiate the system one is the the burden on patients is very low we're collecting a lot of the data passively so there's no action required a with the exception of the the voice where we do ask people to fill in an audio diary or speak into the app once a week minimum of ten seconds lots of patients do more but we also ask them to talk about themselves which patients often like to do and then secondly the app is used in the context of clinical care so you have a provider who's also seeing that data making the recommendation to use the app and then in a collaborative way working with you to use that information to guide your treatment so really kind of a different model for mental health so all those factors kind of combining into one and I think one of the most important things for our listeners understand is that this is something the patient is doing on their own they have their doctor they're monitoring on the clinician dashboard to be able to help and I think that's something that a lot of technology your ABS are missing and like you said a lot of apps the required too much of the of the person and someone doesn't want to go into the app maybe every day have to log all this stuff for you don't want to feel like a chore and so I think passively would be would be really excellent on gas for patients use and I think you know if you step back a little bit the early days of artificial intelligence there was a lot of hype that we're gonna replace humans and I think that we are a long way from replacing human judgment when it comes to clinical care in general and in particular inside a mental health where that relationship with your provider is so important so thinking of this as a as a companion to care is is really the way to think about it perfect yeah it's a companion but it's not replacing it and you know also won our listeners to know that you were the chief neuroscientist for Nielson consumer neuroscience and so I'm I'm sure that that role really kind of was able to give you a great and robust background to be able to work on this technology how did those two things kind of inter twined and push you into a companion a Max yeah so I was very fortunate in the early two thousands to go over to the MIT media lab as a young an upcoming psychiatric researcher and I was exposed to amazing technologies at the media lab and was involved in starting to companies and one of them as you say come to call their scope search was really a pioneer in this field of consumer science which is the application of tools and technologies from healthcare and academia applied to media and marketing questions in the big scheme of that work was going beyond just what people say their self report do you think about market research for a century it's been focus groups and and surveys but we know that what drives consumers are their emotions right and their motivations at a deeper level that we can't necessarily access through talking to people so moving from that subjective experience to more objective data from the conscious to the non conscious was a big trend and in many ways that's what we're doing at companion emacs moving from subjective self report from surveys and even interviews when I talk to patients in the clinic the first question I ask is so have you been the last few weeks and I know that that's biased by their recall which is not very accurate for more than a few hours and and their cognition they're gonna be filtering what they're saying and thinking about how to present themselves where is when you're collecting behavioral data from the phone when you're out in the real world you you move to a more objective standard that is really on a non conscious level you don't think about all the Texan calls are making and and where you are moment to moment and we're able to take that digital footprint and and make it meaningful for patients and the artificial intelligence factor of it is so fascinating I've really started to kind of learn more about artificial intelligence and look into it more and so how can a I fuel suicide prevention sure so let's first think about the way were using artificial intelligence right now what we've done and what a lot of people have done is take very large data sets in in in many cases millions and millions of data points and then look for patterns right that's with machine learning does incredibly well and that allows us to create models that we can then compare individual behavior against that's essentially what we're doing so when we think about suicide prevention and when you think about suicide let's put this into context in the United States about a hundred twenty people a day complete suicide and of those twenty twenty year veterans so we've done a fair amount of work with the VA the veteran's affairs thinking about our service men and women and how to prevent suicide in one of the things we've learned is that with an apple like this you can really see trends in data before people get to a really bad place and so by working with call centers that have access to the dashboard and can reach out to people before they get near too far along can be really huge and they have credit us with a number of saves as what they call when they call someone up and say we we presented something that could have been a catastrophe that's incredible and so how does how does a save work sure so imagine you've got you know as a group of servicemen and women who have the app there's a a call center group of people who are monitoring the dashboard on a daily basis and they're looking for trends in the data and we start to see person a their scores are starting to become erratic up and down a few days and that's going to suggest that their stability is dropping and that's going to trigger a phone call and that phone call is going to go out and they're going to have a set of guidelines for depending on how the person responds to that call what to do how to refer them for care in some cases that might be follow up with your doctor in other cases it might be you hang on the line I'm going to call nine one one and have been able to come out and see well that's incredible and so you got you said that you have been credited with some saves I mean how does that feel knowing that this technology is working why it's it's super exciting obviously to be able to intervene it at any level to to save lives I think it's also exciting is that that work I just described has led to another opportunity this time with this the department of defense were taking a similar approach to active duty military personnel so one of things we know about active duty military folks is that when they're in theater they're deployed they have a lot of structure they've got a lot of support from their comrades and they have a clear mission the risk is in what's called the post deployment right we we think of it is going on leave that's when rates of suicidal thinking and pair suicidal behavior actual suicides go up so we're involved in a protocol were going to be actively monitoring active duty military personnel while they're on leave and really taking that same approach call center in Denver is gonna be watching their signals and hopefully showing that we can intervene in a way that's positive that's incredible and I think that can have a really big impact on a lot of people obviously are veterans it's so important to pay attention their mental health and for everybody else who may be struggling and so I know this is already impacting a lot of people you guys have several partnerships in Boston so I mean how is that going with the partnerships and how is it impacting patients and doctors yes so we've been very fortunate to not only work with the VA and the department of defense but also to work with some of.

Should You Trust An App With Your Mental Health?

The Rundown

Should You Trust An App With Your Mental Health?

"Is how are people using their smartphones as tools right now and how is that kind of slowly changing over time I mean it's a circus using this tool for mental health or tools for anything tools for mental health okay so people are using their their smartphones as tools for mental health and a lot of interesting exciting and the first wave I think what we're learning is certainly there are not to help out with the category and there may be up to ten thousand of them if you try to estimate the number there's no real official count because I'll come and go they get deleted but I'll be say ten thousand dental health laid out your mood trackers their symptom trackers there is medication Cocker you can measure quantify a lot of things after stand to live the clearance of mental health it also affect can deliver services they can help deliver therapy they can deliver mind Paul that state can deliver different aspects of treatment remotely the war also learning is people are using apps aren't explicitly mental health topics to to help to mental health some people are using social media out you're kind of how it works section to be more connected to reach out to people some people are using apps for exercise and fitness and that certainly can be benefiting their mental health some people using apps to kind of protect themselves dig into situations where they feel at risk of a relapsing intriguing more alcohol or they feel unsafe kind of quickly reach out to people that the safety net so we're seeing people using these to kind of help wanted Terter symptoms help intervene kind of have interventions under some help that two people hello wait to exercise help health safety net so it's a really broad way that people are using about that it's always the whole thing yeah it seems like it's you know you mentioned ten thousand have seems like there are so many options out there for people to use to get help for any number of things I mean you mentioned fitness and wellness and all these different types of apps are there any particular ones that are kind of rising to the top in popularity when it comes to mental health you know it's a really good question saying what are the most popular or most like mental health topics and hard it's tricky because the apps themselves are always updating and changing or if you think that your own phone how many times and after the one stop date and sometimes the Quebec almost every week so much everybody it's always a very dynamic landscape and what to talk about the one week it may be a completely different out next week to say how they look different what also tricky to kind of see what the best opportunity to hard to say you know what is the best anti depressant or what is the best type of therapy and you would say well it probably depends on the person the contacts and so the old mess what would match the in some ways they can kind of be the same with dental health cool thank you could say what something that really is going to to maps to someone and the right tool and in some ways star ranking so even rankings on I tunes are and what sort of it shows up first the search selection as far stars it had a water views that doesn't really tell you much about hell the kind of story like to tell about that is you're used to be a blood pressure out and what you do is you kind of put your finger over the kind of home screen on your phone and the adequate so your blood pressure is great you're doing a fantastic job and no matter what you put your finger and don't matter who it always is so your blood pressure is still great you're doing even better job basically the opposite the gimmick it's just that every time you have the best blood pressure world good job and Alcott really high reviews people says the greatest apnea my doctor tells me I'm not doing well if you to watch my diet it is absolutely great I had almost five stars thousands of reviews all positive in the end if you can just tell it was it was not a useful operators of giving people wrong information and the point being folks about she done studies we've looked at kind of the medical quality of detox and medical utility and show that doesn't really quarterly or mac chopped to what the star ratings are or what the number of user reviews so I can kind of give you some ideas popular but just because it's popular doesn't really mean you're going to kind of know what's going to be medically or psychiatrically useful for you from subway is it can be a little hard to say what is the top back because one these things are always changing into we don't really that the stars can be a little bit misleading and the number you can be a little bit misleading absolutely yeah so it what I'm gathering and what kind of kind of seems important to mention is that you shouldn't be fully relying on an app it could just be another tool in your toolbox and just because a lot of smartphone users says that the app is great it doesn't mean that your doctor would say it's great necessarily exactly or even your friend your parents in other your child it's it's hard to know right either such there somebody's tools out there they all work so differently do the option of study that our group did we collaborate the group in Australia to block talk institute and we actually looked at what are the medical claims around mental health issues out from age with you we D. opt for description three out may say no helps reduce depression and will minimize anxiety and then we did is we have to follow up those claims we kind of went to the library went on the internet we said Hey Kendall claims be backed up with evidence of the after saying it does this thing doesn't really do it and what we found was only have about two percent of the outside she would back up the claim of some type of evidence you can imagine percent not a large number that means ninety eight percent of our kind of our they're not bringing any accidents are crucial you why they should earn your trust order kind of may be exaggerating their claims are kind of extrapolating a little bit I don't think they're trying to mislead people per se but it's certainly the case where you can't really trust everything you're seeing on there and one reason I think that's important for everyone listened to think about is a lot he dropped me look like that a collapse they may have a picture of phone a white coat in the hospital in the backround ambulance and it's a but really very they if you read the fine print it says you know we're a health and wellness you still who cares of the health and wellness topics of medical after the difference becomes legal not a health and wellness out doesn't have to follow all the medical privacy rules that the government has set in place to kind of keep your medical data I've been here if it's a health and wellness center it's kind of like posting something to internet formed up publicly opened the rules are much more promising about what happened to your daughter who sees your data who gets the actions that a lot of these medical out again I even I'm using the word right there lawyers out that look like they're better collapse actually health and well without it because of that they're not really supporting U. as the user of the any of the protections that you kind of are expecting your gas I see okay so yes so it's important for our listeners to know to just kind of approach with caution don't plunge into the deep end on these apps in obviously people are very sensitive about their their medical history all of that sensitive information and so when you're given the absolute that information it's important to to be careful and know where that information is going and also just be cautious of the apps so I mean clearly there are some risks that kind of coincide with the benefits aside from potential you know sharing of information or data or confusing a medical lab with the health and wellness AB are there any other risks that all users should be aware I know I think we kind of touch from earlier but clearly directly benefit to using this tool to return extra tool kind of in your tool kit of things that will kind of help you but I think the thing is if especially the new diagnosis your new symptoms are not sure what's going on it's best to talk to your your family kept their family practice doctor a psychiatrist and therapist because sometimes things that feel like depression or anxiety can have medical causes underlying you get before you kind of say Hey this a psychiatric I want to try to digital pop from the tree that you really want to know what you're treating the most important thing because sometimes there can be say a hormone if your thyroid and I can look just like depression so you don't want to kind of be using one of these pop forms when the diagnosis of the match and I think if you do find one is popcorn beautiful it's worth calling a treatment provider that you work with again be it a primary care doctor family doctor or therapist or psychiatrist Hey I'm using this this is why I like it that's what I'm doing it's important that kind of you don't want to fight with your care you don't want to outsource part of your care here and no one else that kind of is overseeing your medical care or kind of even a family member knows all the different pieces are tools you're using but it's always good to keep someone to live again and say Hey here's how do you think you can match at the extreme cases you don't want one after the diet one doing exercise wanted to medications once the direct line of this one to boot the dead man you're kind of begin fragmenting account all these pieces of that can have just overall negative outcomes by think think your detox is kind of extra extra boost I actually think you can use to kind of get used to a tough spot after you kind of know what you're doing while you're using it and then they can be useful yeah absolutely out of curiosity are there any apps that you use on a daily basis or weekly basis so not that I use right now but I've tried a lot of the and folks have brought me a lot of them to look at and I think I see one of the most impressive suite of apps I recommend to people that actually made by the veterans administration DBA and what I like about the VA oxes are completely free there's no hidden costs are the restrictions the great privacy policy says we don't take your data it's very easy to understand you can check it out yourselves the VA is actually done a lot of research on digital mental health and apps so you can feel confident they've got to look at these tool they've had patients involved in designing the the head commissions that had researchers and they're pretty easy to use the VA apps and you don't have to be just a veteran taxes on their sweet anyone if you just search for the A. acts library or you'll find on the iTunes store and the entrance or I think those are pretty exciting apps to use again because that they have zero cost there's an act that I haven't directly use but I read about a lot in research papers called in telecare you're through from Northwestern University in Chicago and that's interesting applicants idea is instead of kind of watching maybe a thirty minute lecture on therapy of your phone which is pretty hard to stick with you you see out for thirty seconds to kind of learn to re frame of thought you master if you download the new app if you can if you set it is very short bursts over over you can download new apps that your tool kit so I think in telecare versus the different ways to that sort of mental

Trump defends tweet, says congresswomen have said "horrible" things

"There's war of words going on in Washington and president trump in case you didn't no has tweeted out this new has put out sees new tweets just this morning going after a see and the whole squad again and he's doubling down a trickling down now on on these attacks on on Twitter and he's only too happy to it the whole the whole thing was trump is the reason that he's doing this you may think well why is he going after these form when he's not running running against them he's running he's not gonna be running for president against them but there is a method to his madness I would say I believe that he is the whole goal is to make them his opponents because there's so far left A. O. C. is a socialist and you know joy by by putting her first front and center as the face of the Democratic Party he hopes to position the entire Democratic Party as being behind them rather than sort of a more moderate path and so he's a he's thrilled to have them as his nemesis and he tweeted this morning a string of tweets this morning trump also insisted his tweets were not racist quote I don't have a racist bone in my body exclamation point he wrote is with a straight face it urged fellow Republicans not to fall into a quote trapped by voting Tuesday night on the democratic backed resolution this is the house of representatives is preparing today to vote on a resolution condemning president trump fan is in his tweets quote this is trumps latest tweet this morning the democratic Congress women have been spewing some of the most vile hateful and discussing things ever said by a politician in the house or Senate and yet they get a free pass in a bigger brace from the Democrat party trump wrote on Twitter listing several grievances about the lawmakers quote why is on the house voting to review the filthy and hate lace things they have said because they are the radical left and the Democrats are afraid to take tomorrow and sad exclamation point he's got to put in the sad there but as you can see clearly what he's doing is is trying to make the entire Democratic Party Dan behind these four women and make and sort of make them in the face of the debt entire Democratic Party a clear what his strategy is this is the third day in a row of attacks on these women lawmakers I believe they're all freshmen lawmakers to yeah they're all new they're all new yeah women of color and there's got it what is gonna be other new freshmen lawmakers say they must feel kinda left out that they haven't been there that have progressive enough fight over a lot of possibly I'm not sure but we just just given time he'll get to them like you like it doesn't matter focusing on these for right now bill before more tomorrow they're not just these four but I think clearly what the person he's focusing on Moses AOC because she is a socialist and he wants the whole Democratic Party to be forced to defend her socialist views so but I wondered securely is stepping in because what they the Democrats eating themselves alive to begin with they were battling a lawyer and then he has to say this now and now we know all the news coverage is on him and call you a racist was taken the the load off of the Democrats fighting right there and now they look sort of like their United United against trump and ten being calling them a racist saying go back to your own country when three of the four men women are from the US yeah it was a little inaccurate but yet he just doesn't have the tweet Joe he does is we to just worded in question was he sent Shekou his information before you to eat so obviously he's doing this early in the morning I think because I think it was before like seven AM this morning where these twits these latest the tweets came out but I think that he's only too happy to have the focus on those for women and he wants the Democratic Party to stand with them and he doesn't care but as you said Christian that he was he he they they were sort of eating themselves alive before this because they see was was did was attacking them and they were you know clearly not on the same page yeah the Democratic Party has multiple wings state it seems like you have the really progressive wing with these four congresswoman then you get Nancy Pelosi who seems to not even want to listen to any of them right that she's got her own plans and doesn't want to go off for the impeachment right and they're fighting amongst each other in the doldrums steps in and well now they are United in their attacking trump again yeah yeah but yeah as you know he wants to be the center of attention so he's got his wish so we couldn't help himself yeah exactly I don't think you can help himself

Crowdsourced AI learns to target lung tumors for radiation

"So got a fresh piece of research for you guys quite literate literally hot off the presses today in JAMA on college. It was like I said released this morning, and it has to do with the use of artificial intelligence in cancer care specifically related to lung cancer. And so just to give you guys a little background. Of course. Lung cancer remains the second most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer mortality in the United States. There's approximately one hundred fifty thousand deaths estimated in twenty eighteen not to Bom anybody out, but we have some solutions here. Artificial intelligence is helping us out here. So the piece of research that I'm hoping to discuss today is having to do with an artificial intelligence based. Solution in radiation therapy targeting. So radiation therapy targeting is pretty simple. It's basically if somebody does have a tumor a cancerous tumor radiation therapy, targeting just deals with the radiation patient is receiving in the precise target on the tumor that the radiation has to arrive that to be able to get rid of that cancer, treat that cancer, hopefully, creating a good outcome for that patient. So artificial intelligence is helping us here in this research shows that computers. AI are actually hunting cancer faster than humans. Yup. You heard that correctly computers have beat again. And so this piece of research that I'm looking at here, which by the ways out of Brigham and women's Dana Farber was aimed at replicating the accuracy of an expert radiation oncologists. So he I is replicating. This accuracy of an expert who of course, has years of training years of expertise. And so now there could be some. AI solutions for helping patients who do have lung cancer who do have complications with that. And. Can assist doctors in targeting this cancer in finding it and for mitigating that radiation therapy targeting? So yesterday, I spoke with Dr Raymond MAC. He's the first author of the study, and he's a radiation oncologist at Brigham Brigham. And women's he told me that these solutions they're developing quickly. They're very useful. But they're not a hundred percent viable

Michael Cohen testifies before Congress

"Michael Cohen when everyone in this room to think about this the first announced witness for the hundred and sixteenth. Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to congress. Mr Chairman, your chairmanship will always be identified with this hearing. What this is hearing for heavy-handedness. Straight up there about the business of the day. I think. Choreograph the whole. Cummings rose out all sorts of historic. These people are crazy than I am. No. He told her staff he told the committee staff, he said, the hearing was his idea he selected this committee. He had to talk Michael Cohen into comment, and most importantly, he had to persuade the chairman to actually have it. He told us took two months to get that job done. But here we this is what Americans like about politics. Yeah. I find the posturing someone convicted of lying to congress has appeared again so quickly in front of congress. Certainly it's the first time a convicted perjurer has Cota or no, he's shirtsleeved, sir. And there's a reason why subject really burning mechanical. Bernie sanders. Canadian we got lots of lawyers on this. No, it's actually sorta slick. I'm a witness to violate attorney client privilege. Mr Chairman, we legitimize dishonesty, we de-legitimize this institution. We're supposed to pursue the truth. But you have stacked the deck against the truth. We're only allowed to ask certain questions even with that amendment. You just told us about Russia's now on the table. You initially told us we can't ask questions about the special counsel can't ask questions about the southern district of New York. Can't ask questions about Russia realized that if he gets stuck in. I'm going to be harmful to the president of the United States and the answers to those questions. I'm gonna come from a guy who can't be trusted. Here's what the US attorney said about Mr. Cohen, Mr. Cohen enjoyed a privileged life, his desire, forever, greater wealth and influence precipitated. An extensive course of criminal conduct. Mr. Colin committed four four distinct federal crimes over a period of several years. He was motivated to do. So by personal greed and repeatedly repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive in could hire a piece of shit like that. They don't care. They just wanna use you Mr. Cohen. You're their Patsy today. They gotta find somebody somewhere to say something. So they can try to remove the president from office. Tom Steiner told him to Tom. Seek organized a town hall guess where cut replaced. George Soros or Charles coke townhall, guess where Sheldon Adelson district in Baltimore. The best. They can find the best. They can find to start this process. Michael Cohen well in this complete waste of time in the circus. Federal inmates. Seems like there's real works. If the congress could be doing. I'll say one thing about the Democrats. Oh, wait, they stick to the playbook. Remember, I'd like myself. Rex the Clinton campaign hired Perkins. QE law firm who hired Glenn Simpson who foreigner Christopher Steele who put together the fake dossier air, we go that the FBI used to go get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, but when that whole scheme failed and the American people said we're gonna make Donald Trump president. They said we got to do something else. So now Clinton loyalists Clinton operative. Lanny Davis has persuaded the chairman of the oversight committee to give a convicted felon a forum just tell stories and lie about the president of the United States, whatever we can start their impeachment process. Mr Chairman, we are better than this. We are better than this. Are you back? Nicely done. He said everything he knows the chairman actually I want. I jesus. I don't give these back. So. Yeah. Motion motion under rule two K six of rule Baxter chairman. You took seven minutes. I took four. That's how you could operate. I don't follow the rules. That's how you're gonna say. You'll be back.

I has cut two thirds of staff members at its twelve largest unionized papers. According to the Wall Street Journal critic say laying off journalists isn't just bad for the quality of the papers. But for democracy itself with subscriptions. And revenue down more than eighteen hundred newspapers of closed in the US since two thousand four with fewer local watchdogs, some stories don't get covered. An investigative journalism is hard to come by. But digital firsts argument is that shareholders come first, and they say shareholders deserve better than they're getting from Gannett whose profits have been declining last week digital I reveal that with seven and a half percent of Gannett shares. The media group is Gannett largest shareholder, which could give them the power to force the USA today owner to sell while critics bemoaned the decline of journalism in favor of higher profits digital first claims it wants to save newspapers touting its recent purchases of the Boston Herald and the Orange County.

Patriots To Adjust Tom Brady's Contract; Add $5M In Incentives

"Years and speaking of Jimmy Garoppolo who is now the second highest paid quarterback in football behind Kirk, cousins Tom Brady's got a new. Contract some additions on. There it's a five million dollars in incentives to go on with that fourteen million dollar based. Salary why the hell do you have to give Tom Brady incentives as this is stuff that drives me nuts about football. Visible that's. Awesome with the, cap you can Manipulated by doing by, putting. An incentives like this is ridiculous I'm, sorry I mean you've, got to figure out a way to not do this this, guy has been here almost twenty years I think. You kind of know what he's done and what he's going to continue to, do what I know but died yesterday floated the story that in practice it was shaking his arm that maybe he's not quite right hasn't looked great in training camp and maybe. By not, appearing at the voluntary OTA's it's catching up to him and practice has been kind of disjointed right two days off a day on Brady gets his birthday off so they're not up. To the, speed that they normally are but. This guy you have to give him. Incentives you're looking at like it's a slap in the face to Brady were really it's a way to manipulate the cap is not a slap, in the face of this is. A way to manipulate. The castle is so is the incentives you don't have to I I this is why I. Also think that you should almost take the quarterback salaries out of the salary cap because they're going to make so much. Money and. You have to, pay quarterbacks Get the best quarterback the Brady white sign it because I'm sure it's fine I'm just looking at it to someone that admires the guy when I. See incentives, for player like that I'm like that's what's wrong with football okay but it's a way to manipulate that's all it is yes I've heard that a couple times already you're trying to Federal case again into making a federal case because here's a guy again I remember, remember when Joe. Torre left the New York Yankees they said okay we're going to we're going to give you. A contract but we're. Going to, have some incentives in there you'll make a half a million dollars. If you win the American League east you'll, make. Another half a million if you. Win the American League and he's. Pretty, much said, damn, all, set, I've, earned, my right that. I don't need to have incentives incentives for people that aren't motivated this guy is, motivated God forbid the, patriots do something that's smart for the rest of the. Team they after just all bowed out Tom Brady whatever Tom Brady them for seventeen years Basim bow down. To them, recently well it's no no. No. No no no that's not true. You know this job. Because, of their west Welker contract and he's. Taken pay cuts Yeah so they should do, its best to the teams Except for Tom Brady and not give him things that help the cap and just give him the guaranteed money and then tied. To the cat because they realize what they should. Do they. Didn't keep his one of his favorite receivers Danny amendola he's. Bringing in, wide receivers that looked like they were. Retired I mean Eric decker looked like, he? Was retired he was hanging out with his wife right and now he's coming back and they're going to try. To see if he can make something out of himself teams that screw, themselves over are the teams that do whatever the hell the players all the, time and give them all the money that. They. Want and that don't care about is not true The Vikings done that and giving Kirk. Cousins biking's aren't aren't gonna win a championship
