Jon Levy - How to Build Deeper Connections with Anyone

"So let's dive in by understanding a little bit about why human connection is so important we all know. It's important intuitively. Can you put some words around it for us. Oh for sure. So i'll just start off by saying i grew up. Pretty lonely was super kid. And i didn't really quite fit in. This was like before you could actually have cool geeks now. Everybody likes marvel superheroes back then. It was me and like three other kids in my school. So the weird thing is. I thought that that was like a unique experience. Because i would see shows on television where like everybody was hanging out and everybody had friends. Even the geeks and as i was researching my new book. You're invited. I came across something pretty startling in one thousand nine hundred eighty five the average american had just about three close friends besides family by two thousand four must in a generation later. We were down to just about to so nineteen years. We lost a third of our close social ties besides family and that is terrifying terrifying for two reasons. One is that we'd like to blame things. Like social media and technology the real culprit is probably people moving more for work or after school and it resets their social ties but now that trend is probably progressed and with the pandemic and people being locked in their homes and avoiding physical contact. That numbers probably even lower and for me. The most concerning thing about that is that research. From brigham young looked at what are the actual greatest predictors of human long jetty especially the ones that are in our control and after genetics. Which we can't really control for and i'm meeting meaningful way. At least not yet to is close social ties of close friends or family and number one is social integration which is essentially measured by the number of social contact. You have throughout the day

"Welcome to the podcast. It's a pleasure and an honor to have you here. Brother i you kidding. I've been hearing such wonderful things about you from our common friends. That i was like i want nothing more than to hang up and kind of just explore ideas with you. Well i appreciate that. I'd love to jump right in. And then we'll come back and said a little bit more context by telling your story and why we're here in the book and the whole deal but i wanna start at longevity and want to ask you a question because i think that if there's people that are listening to this podcast who are super health which there are. You're interested in the topic of longevity now with longevity. There's so many layers. There's our diet lifestyle supplements. there's there's our health span is spanish so many factors but in your new book. You have a whole section where you go into. What is one of the greatest predictors of longevity. And i think that's a great place to kick off the conversation so tell us a little bit about brigham young university. Some of their work over there and the greatest predictor of longevity. So i love this topic. Because i've a lot of friends who are like in silicon valley their bio hackers and. They're doing everything they can to extend their life and they ended up buying these like crazy machines and going on these like fast and all this stuff and you know that kind of stuff may or may not really actually help anything. But when researchers looked at many years of data of what actually predicts your longevity aside from genetics which we currently don't have any ability to effect. It wasn't which papaya cleanse you. Were on or how much kale you. The number. Two greatest predictor was close social ties having friends or close fan number one with social integration.

Managing Atrial Fibrillation With Lifestyle Changes Dr. Christine Albert

"Thought we could start by discussing some of your major contributions to the management of atrial fibrillation even since my medical school days. It seems like the emphasis. On lifestyle management for diseases such as atrial fibrillation has increased exponentially as we learn more about arrhythmia mechanisms and now we specifically screen patients for sleep apnea diet alcohol use et cetera. So from all of the landmark clinical research that you've conducted over your career. That's far could you. Maybe summarize for us. What you feel are the biggest takeaways whether in eighth hundred prevention or in any of your other areas that sudden cardiac death. Thank you when i started doing. Research on the epidemiology of heart rhythm disorders really wasn't an emphasis as you say on. Risk factors for h. fibrillation or sudden cardiac death. And then you know a group of us not just myself but amelia benjamin in the premium study and patrick eleanor. We all started to get interested in looking at atrial fibrillation as you would cardiovascular disease and some of the major findings are really related to lifestyle and how it can impact each relation including body mass index. And wait and wait reduction. We've done several studies. One who first authors tetreault who's also electro physiologist at brigham women's hospital and she published a very important study in jack. Where we showed in bunks women. Even being slightly overweight had elevated to risk of fibrillation. And then if you lost weight you lower that risk. And in addition some of the other research we did was around. Exercise and showing that exercise is beneficial to atrial fibrillation. But as we all know too much. Exercise can actually have an adverse effect and this again was a study that was done by tony acer who was also an electro physiologist and his now at nyu worked with me for a while. So both of those manuscripts were very important. With regards management of atrial fibrillation. In addition we also published one of the first studies looking at alcohol intake and h fibrillation. Now there have been multiple multiple studies showing that alcohol is related to atrial fibrillation. And as you know a randomized trial now that shows that if you abstained from alcohol you lower your risk of atrial fibrillation so all of these studies are not just by myself but multiple. Investigators have really changed the practice where we as clinicians think about lowering. Risk factors as electra physiologists event and approach sanders. Work in australia really took it to another level by actually doing clinical trial in showing that reduction of weight and modifying risk factors lowers incidence of atrial fibrillation. So now it's really one of our pillars of treatment and it is rewarding to see something go from observational research to clinical trials in actually to

"After suffering serious orthopedic and leg injuries in a single car rollover crash in L. A. Technically it was an SUV. But I spoke with Dr Michael Weaver, chief of orthopedic trauma at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, who says they did emergency surgery on his muscle tissue. As well. The reports were that they had to release the fashion or the tissue covering the muscles of his leg. Oftentimes in a high energy injury, there could be swelling. And if the pressure inside the muscle builds up too much can A risk the blood supply to his leg and foot and so often in that situation, that tissue is released to release the pressure and that allow the blood to flow that suggest to you that he was in danger of losing his leg. I'm not sure that he was in danger of losing his leg, but I think it is an indication that this was a very severe injury. Human women's doctor Michael Weaver. Thank you for your time.

Extraordinary Boston Patient Offers Surprising Clues To Origins Of Coronavirus Variants

"Are trying to learn more about corona virus burien by studying the case of one extraordinary covid. Nineteen patient and this patient was a forty five year old man who admitted to a boston hospital last spring doctors at brigham and women's hospital treated him he got better and he was discharged but his infection never went away. This is a of an extraordinary individual who was readmitted over the subsequent five months for recurrence of his covid infection and severe pneumonia. Dr jonathan lee. One of the doctors who treated the man says he was not a so-called long. Hauler a person who clears their covert infection but has lingering after-effects sometimes for bunce. This man says had living growing virus in his body for one hundred and fifty four days. That is one of the remarkable aspects of this case and in fact he was highly infectious even five months after the initial diagnosis re spoke to npr science reporter. Mike lean duke left. Who picks up the story from here. These says the man's immune system wasn't working normally. He was taking any suppressive drugs for chronic illness. So his body couldn't fight off the virus very well but we also wondered if perhaps the virus was taking advantage of this unusual situation with so much time inside the man. The virus might have the unity to test out different versions of itself in find. More infectious versions. So lena's colleagues begin to examine the viruses genes. How shocked shocked because of virus was mutating very quickly inside the man's body these mutations allowed it to evade his immune system to escape detection by antibodies when i saw the virus and the viral sequence. I think i knew then that does that. We're dealing with completely different at a potentially important completely different because the virus had a whole collection of mutations not just one or two but more than twenty scientists had never seen this before during the whole pandemic. The in his team published the findings in the new england journal of medicine. The report didn't even make big news. That was november twenty twenty then about a month later a new corona virus variant causing international concern is. Npr's david greene reported. Scientists this past december detected new genetic variants of the virus one in the uk one in south africa and then later when in brazil guess what these variants have in common with the virus in the boston patient. A sudden collection of multiple mutations in a combination. That is worrisome. That's jeremy lubin he's a virologist at the university of massachusetts medical school he says these new variants look remarkably similar to the virus lee and his colleagues found in their patient. They the same but they share important characteristics. They both have about twenty mutations and they have ones that make the virus more contagious in so right now. Lubin says one hypothesis is that the new variants the one from the uk south africa and brazil arose inside. People like the boston patient people with these long term infections and who are immunocompromised because their immune system was not working and normally they could eliminate the virus and over time the first and acquired a collection of mutations that otherwise did not insieme. let's work in other words. The virus this long-term infection as a testing ground to try out different mutations in c which one's v the immune system become more infectious in eventually spread more easily around the world.

Massachusetts coronavirus vaccine sign-ups plagued by problems as Phase 2 rollout begins

"Medical researchers who work remotely have been rolling up their sleeves to get the covert vaccine. Meanwhile, seniors are waiting on the sidelines not yet eligible. Massachusetts has one of the nation's largest hospital workforces, and officials there have decided to put all of them at the front of the line. Gabriela Emanuel of member station GBH in Boston reports. Carol Helper set is 82. She's been in her apartment just outside Boston. Since the beginning of the pandemic. Nobody comes in. Nobody goes out. I become more and more despairing and lonely cut off some human contact helpers that has a long list of complex medical issues. The most urgent one. She's going blind, She says. She's desperate for ice surgery. But in order to safely be in the hospital, she needs a vaccine. The vaccine would change my life. It would give me the future for weeks. She's been desperately trying to figure out how to get a shot. I am still Totally Totally in the dark. She's watched with jealousy as seniors in many other states have started receiving vaccines. She studied data from the CDC finding Massachusetts in the bottom half of states in per capita vaccinations. But perhaps most baffling is seeing healthy young people get inoculated before the elderly and the sick. We're seeing just a huge number of people get vaccinated. Who I think you know, should frankly be way down the line. Michael Mina is at Harvard School of Public Health, the other people who have nothing to do at all with Cove ID or with Patient care. We're really with the hospitals. They just happen to be employed by a hospital, and thus they can get the vaccine. Ah, few things are happening here. First, the federal level nationally, vaccines are being distributed to states based on their total population. The federal government has told states to prioritize certain groups like healthcare workers with lots of hospitals. Massachusetts has lots of health care professionals at the front of the line and effectively means that the elderly and vulnerable people who might need the vaccine first will generally be pushed back the second factor state and hospital level decisions. Here. The health care worker category has been defined to include all hospital employees. Those in research labs and telemedicine in HR, including people working remotely. Paul Bettinger oversees the vaccine rollout at the Mass General Brigham. He says his hospital network needed to bring in some of those working from home during the first surge. They called up researchers and administrators and others in the intensive care unit listening for the alarms of ventilators because the federal surge ventilators that we had wouldn't plug into our alarm systems now a third issue, individuals have been flaky. Dana Farber Cancer Institute sent out a mass email saying quote we have had far too many researchers not show up for covert 19 vaccinations over the past week. The result of the email says, is vaccines that may have been wasted. These challenges have been compounded by communication missteps and technical glitches, and Massachusetts has admitted hundreds of thousands of doses are sitting unused in hospital and pharmacy freezers. Governor Charlie Baker has announced. Those over 75 will be eligible on the first of February, and he's hoping they'll have enough vaccines to meet all the pent up demand. For NPR News and Gabriella

Near-Death Experiences

"Accounts of near death. Experiences can be polarizing indie. Most often happened while people are unconscious so researchers are incredibly limited in what they can actually measure. They must rely on human testimony to fill in. What's actually happening in other words. Andy ease exist near the intersection of two seemingly contradictory ideas science and faith which is why after a neurosurgeon reported in n. d. e. it became central to the conversation in nineteen eighty eight. Dr eban alexander began his career in boston at one of the most prestigious hospitals in the country. Brigham and women's well working as a neurosurgeon. Dr alexander simultaneously target his father's alma mater. Harvard medical school in both institutions. He had access to some of the most cutting edge medical technology in the world. Soon dr alexander became an expert in a non invasive. Surgical treatment called stereo tactic. Radio surgery a procedure that uses targeted radiation to address medical abnormalities. In the brain it can even eliminate tumors without needing to open the skull in his own practice. Doctor under-used stereo tactic. Radio surgery to treat cancer. Epilepsy mentoring nerves and tangled blood vessels and for nearly a decade in the field of medicine. His star was on the rise until two thousand one when an elderly woman from arizona. Whom will call. Rose contacted him to remove a benign tumor in her brain. Dr alexander was one of the few surgeons in the country capable of performing the procedure. So rose flew from arizona all the way to boston but she didn't receive the treatment that she expected when rose arrived at the hospital orderlies placed her in a wheelchair and brought her into the operation. Room apparently no one spoke to her or explain what was happening. After doctors strapped into a device rendering it immobile rose demanded to meet. Dr eben alexander. She was about to go under and he had yet to introduce himself mere minutes before the operation began. Dr alexander stepped in front of her said. Hello and assured her that she was in good hands then she drifted into unconsciousness and the surgery began when rose woke up in the icu. She couldn't move the left side of her face. Dr alexander never warned her about the risks associated with her surgery and though he'd successfully eliminated her tumor half of her face was now permanently paralyzed. Ultimately rose filed a lawsuit. Her lawyers asked to see the paperwork she'd signed before entering surgery. But apparently dr alexander could only produce a single sheet of paper. It didn't even have rose's signature on it. Apparently dr alexander had misplaced a number of her forms. The case was eventually settled out of court shortly after. Brigham and women's fire dr alexander from their roster administrators have not stated whether or not the dismissal was related to the lawsuit. Either way dr alexander moved on to work for umass memorial medical center located in worcester massachusetts. Where apparently his careless behavior continued during one operation. Dr alexander reportedly left a small piece of plastic inside a woman's nick. In addition to the pain this caused her she needed another intensive surgery to have it removed then in august two thousand three umass suspended dr sanders for an error made during an operation. On another patient's brain stem the specific details surrounding. These punitive measures remain confidential by early two thousand seven.

Thanks for sending the thomas auden at this time of an normandy. Doing other things here. we're we're gone. You're having us said we would do anything for podcasts. You have a great. So he goes from palestinian pros rundown on what you guys do and power. We also While wearing contacts Little bit into this boy while we're gonna be talking about after that -solutely awesome power still in pros. We are a coachee accountability organization. So we actually do training in coaching exclusively in the home services industries so heated in air electrical plumbing and in a few outliers as well but really our our main goal is to to help companies grow by doing that. They win more moments. They while more customers in really ultimately they make more money. So it's it's not only just about creating the our experience for the customer but what we've discovered we'll talk about. Today is really take care of the employees and you get the engaged employees that employ experience. Will you know late over an influence what. The customer experiences parasailing pros. We've been around for eleven. Years was started by brigham and dickinson in brigham. I've actually presented with from stage. Thousand burgum is great We bring her boss. Of course we love. What am i going to say. Getting actually service roundtable event in sydney dag comeback was years ago. Yeah sorry definitely has changed over the years. So we have about forty five coaches that work with us and we should do training we do. What's really unique with us. Man is of course. Training training is great but we do ongoing accountability coaching though it really starts to help shift the mindset in that really affects the behavior and natural you start to see the real change takes place over time. Yup aleki certainly preaching Here because we put a lot of emphasis in episode type of years into accountability. And you know the difference between a dream and a golf betting a strategy italy's contest sophon. They'd myself over the years since since having accountability partners implies things things might quick show sorrow. Moulik decide this will be extremely well recites and you guys obviously in different locations is that is that because of the recent recent events or is that always been the case. I try to stay as far away as possible to erica. why i'm in texas. He's in utah. She's awesome but man. We actually have an autonomous company in. We don't have a brick and mortar building. We literally have coaches in denver. Florida oregon californian but i would i would definitely say the majority of our there in the beautiful state of utah while okay. So we're we hated. I touched on slave in this series of crowded. Today is the first episode of the creating amazing employee experience. Now we've done the whole customer experience in the past and some it was very well received and think in lots of current global economic situations with the off the back of the pandemic romell your experiences villanova. There's a lot of guys out there. A freaked up to the whole conversation around that staffer attention you know grinding good employees here experience deciding on just funding and i think now more than ever this sort of a situation where the the baby of talent around because for one reason or another people living that guy from the jobs and you know especially after year anyway of the years as miss this constant screen for office off. Now there's now this debate people around so they bang biking that in yourself. More appealing message is paying dividends. Sooner maybe even just now literally just before this podcast outed of Had job applications coming from adds that we're running. I just question whether or not. I don't recall having applicants coming in the fall. It's working in the fiber of the business owner to a degree. I think again. I go to make sure that you stand out against the rest. So we're gonna first step aside which we're talking about why your employees experience probably socks and nothing that would relate to most listeners Second upside we're talking about what you purpose at. In feticide we talking about what the successful companies to retain the employees are through. That you're gonna come up with those topics and you come up with original. What is that reason. So haven't employee experienced for shore is not just creating an employee experience where you have everyone coming into office. Because that's not normal anymore. You got coming into office than your get sent home against. You gotta figure out how to work from home in the now you gotta come back into the office. Now you're going to have an employee experience at home. How do you take care of your people right now. It's always been important but you definitely have to juggle all these different dynamics and one of the things that we have really seen. Is that your culture either by default or by design and it's really setting your employees up for success and even though you know contractors were not the disneyland's not the amazons the googles in t. mobile's or whatever we're not huge corporations where you hear of all these things or evil get one year off when they have their first kid from work paid like we're we can't do that kind of staff but we still have to nurture and take care of the people that we have and find ways we can help them grow and be successful regardless of the size of our company.

"Hearts flutter about training at the brigham for me. Definitely the reason why. I fell in. Love with cardiology was because of the physiology. As you mentioned many times during the episode is just everything just falls together really easily and it's also just a wonderful field that you can choose so many different types of different sub specialties. There's no way you can find anything or that. You don't love or is just a wonderful field. Why did the did i fall in love with brigham. I think probably the two main reasons why i decided to come here was one the exceptional trainees that met during my interview day and then second think this culture of very diverse compassionate state of the art outstanding patient care. So i a fellows here. The culture of camaraderie is unbelievable. Even noticed before. I started so as you can imagine. I moved during covert in. Finding an apartment was not easy. Because i was living in new york and two of the second years actually in shutout to josh and felipe and one of my new fellows atom who barely knew me from before helped me find a broker. They helped me find an apartment. They walk me through boston real estate market. They spent hours on the phone with me. Helping me with this. So i literally got a taste even before i started my fellowship and in terms of the patient care. I just love it here because we learn how to take care of their relatively common cardiology problems for example at our. Va clinic where you see your typical coronary artery disease patients etc but we also get the rare genetic diseases that are sent to our main hospital so for example literally. Last week i was in cardiovascular genetics clinic in the morning with dr ho and then in the afternoon they took a shuttle and went to my. Va clinic by clinic patients. So i really love it here and learning tons definitely though definitely as i said before i had a very unusual clinical path and non clinical path. I thought from my medical school experience that i had to do stroke. I loved neurology. I loved the exam. It felt like a growth field so to speak in terms of how much we don't know but how much were discovering and stroke in particular is starting to move into a very different therapeutic era but the one problem was that when i did my internship at the brigham i had randomly a lot of cardiology rotations assigned to me at the beginning of the year. And it was like finding your soul mate. It just felt like bent to be. And i i went through a few more months. I tried to learn a little bit more about general medicine. See how i felt. But i couldn't ignore that feeling and what i decided to do was to do that. First year of neurology. And see how i felt on the other side of things and i loved neurology even as a resident. But i couldn't get rid of that passion for cardiology all. The things marie mentioned physiology the imaging calf. The patients was so great on top of that for me with my md nba my interest in delivery innovation for the healthcare system. I felt lake. Cardiology was a really nice fit a good laboratory to study problems of healthcare delivery in just because the problems in cardiovascular medicine are so prevalent and and so high impact so those reasons really factored heavily into my decision to ultimately switch. And when i did switch. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to short-track into cardiology and part of the draw of the brigham cardiology fellowship. For me i mean there are many and monica will speak to som- as well but the mentorship here is so outstanding. It's an amazing community at the faculty level very diverse within the division but also with a culture of open-mindedness people like me who often feel like black sheep. and so i think you'll hear from our program director donna. Poke who despite all the challenges. Multiple layers of challenges of running this fellowship during a pandemic. About how much she values this mentorship culture. And you'll hear from one of my own mentors dale adler. Who's our faculty discuss in my clinic precept. Or he's taught me so much of what i know clinically but he really cares about my interest as many of the other faculty do and has helped guide me towards research projects on virtual medicine and other types of delivery innovation so all very important i sense that as a resident and it's been very nice as fellow and you just you can't help but feel that no matter who you are what you're interested in what's going on in your life personally or professionally that there's someone in the division who can help you and to really cares about you and you get the sense that they want you to and become the cardiologists you wanna be. That was great semi maria. I mean i think you guys have really still on the thunder here in in described so many things that i love about the program for me. What i love about cardiology. In addition to being south-asian obviously having an invested interest in it is really the the human dynamics and really getting to be in a field where we just have so much data in so much information. I think it's only really become more highlighted in obvious to me throughout my first year. Where you got to understand the pathophysiology from kath from echo and tying it all together in geeking out over an echo and saying why. Don't we calculate the stroke volume and cardiac output from the echo. And you know. Let's correlate that with the cat and obviously you don't have to do that but it's just so incredible the the resources that we have and how much fun it is to take care of these people if you come interview with us. There's this fun icebreaker that we do for our interview denard now on zoom or as a trivia question and one of them is a number of mechanical support devices that we use in our ccu and it is. It's a lot and it's really. you're just getting to work with so much different levels of acuity and working with devices and and really understanding that. So i could digress about how much i absolutely loved the clinical program here but my reason for choosing brigham as my interest in basic science which i mentioned earlier and i love being lab and i love balancing my time with great clinical care and then being able to answer questions in lab and so when i first got here on my interview day. I was just absolutely in awe of the amazing research and discovery. That's happening throughout brigham. And now going. Through the process of choosing a research lab has been a little tap with covid and zoom in her views or can zoom calls. But it's really just been eye-opening to see just how much excellent research is happening in the types of research that are happening and it really is in some ways an embarrassment of riches and it has been.

Monica yama noah simeon league and maria Guys such an honor to welcome you to the show really excited to launch into our discussion. But i tell the audience who you are. My name is mainly. i am originally from boston. Actually i was born and raised here. I did my residency at the brigham and women's hospital as well and i'm probably headed for prevention within cardiology very interested in behavior change and health care delivery innovation. Thanks so much for having us. I'm monica mandala. The second year. Brigham fellows and i am from california all over the place but did my residency at montefiore in the bronx and am interested in a career in basic science. And thank you so much for having us annamaria pettebone from columbia the country i went to mexico in columbia and then i did my residency at cornell. I stayed an extra year to achieve year. And now i'm doing my first year of cardiology fellowship. Here at the brigham. Very excited to be here as well. Monica's mean maria. Welcome welcome welcome. We are so excited to have you and also visit you in boston. I've got so many fine memories of just like wandering aimlessly around boston. The parks the streets the history. It was an amazing place. I crush the was like my first time using public transportation. Us really nervous but they had this like at the time that guided me. I also had a call my wife a lot to ask for directions but guys. This is such a tree. Take us your favorite boston locale so we could talk about some amazing cardiology absolutely so monica. Maria and i are sitting on a dock along the charles river esplanade which is a beautiful park on the boston side of the charles river. I grew up here. So i'm a little bit biased. But this is definitely one of our favourite spots in boston. We actually recently had a socially distanced picnic here to welcome the new first year fellows which was so fun. We'd frisbee music. Some were sailing. Great food great sunset th really close to everything restaurant in boston and cambridge bars. The sites shopping hospitals you name it there. Some really amazing concerts and fireworks there during the holidays. Super special place. We love it boston. I was surprised to find coming from new. York is such a beautiful outdoor space. I live right next to the harvard. Arboretum and i just absolutely love going for a run. They're walking around. It's really one of the greenest cities i've ever seen and i've seen san francisco shock. Oh newport beach. So oliver. But boston is really fantastic in that way. But i just not emphasize the food. But i still have to go back to my new york knicks ticket at crispy dosa christie. Those do doses. But tonight we are enjoying Socially distanced picnic hanging out at the esplanade gazing across the charles river. And we're gonna dive into some amazing cardiology. So guys let's do it. What do we have today. I have an incredible case to share with you guys somebody. I took care of in the. Cc you the other night. And i'm just dying to hear what you think and to talk about it so listen to this. We got this guy very young guy. Forty four years old with a history of hiv and this idiopathic. Thoracic arctic aneurysm with related severe. Ai that he got repair. Ten years ago with a bioprosthetic freestyle route and vowels who came in with acute onset severe shortness of breath in precinct. Be the story was very interesting. He told us that he was out walking his dogs and then suddenly in a moment became extremely light headed and felt like he was gonna pass out. He went inside his house and tried to go upstairs but had a really hard time he just had severe shortness of breath. He was diet for radic. He was weak and he really never felt this way before so he came right on. It turned out when we met him that there was actually more to the story. He had been fatigued for about a month. He had a flu like illness three weeks prior to presentation during which she had fevers to one hundred one point. Three myalgia 's malays. Interestingly what he told us is that his viral load which is almost always. Undetectable except during little like winter. Colds became briefly detectable during this time even though he hadn't missed a dose of his anti retrovirals and was very adherent no sick context no travel exposures. We asked him about all of that and he hadn't had any other infections but it had dental cavity that he was waiting to have filled. Wow it seems like he must have been thirty or so when he had his valve fixed. What was on with his valve in with his aaagh wrva. Yeah the aneurysm. History was very interesting. He told us that he was diagnosed at age. Thirty after one of his doctors picked up a murmur on exam. He got an echo to follow that up in that revealed in ascending aorta. Aneurysm of five point. Two centimeters on the trans thoracic echo which also showed severe a i at the time that was as symptomatic and a depressed ejection fraction to forty five percent. Obviously that triggered a whole evaluation and they asked him questions he had no family history of erotic diseases. Dissection sudden death they even order genetic testing around the time of this workup. We don't have the details of that but it was reportedly negative. He got more imaging including a c t and it actually showed. The aneurysm was closer to seven centimeters at thirty years old so he got referred to surgery and ultimately underwent an operation in two thousand ten in which he got a medtronic freestyle route. Which i didn't know about but it's apparently a poor seen a arctic route that includes stint with by a prosthetic valve very appealing at the time because apparently it has smoother flow characteristics as opposed to the more turbulent flow that happens when prosthetic valves have struts disrupting flow. The other thing that was appealing about this is that you could fit a very large sized valve in there because you wouldn't be constrained by the patients native. A arctic routes is now. You guys may be wondering. Why did this thirty year. Old man get a bio prosthetic valve and route. And it's a great question. It was one of the first questions we had for him and he was very forthcoming about it. He said that the recommendation from his doctor's was for mechanical valve given his age but that the patient himself did not think that he could live with hearing the clicking and was very nervous about a life on anti coagulation so after multiple discussions he ended up electing to have a bio prosthetic valve and routine. He did great after surgery. He f- recovery his ai resolves he was able to live a completely normal life. I just want to say that we had this whole conversation on an earlier. Episode about eight versus a are and at that time we we settle on a are because it reminds him of artificial intelligence. But it's nice to hear a it because that's what i've heard used a lot i can. I can say this balance. The yin and the yang need. Both this is a great a. That's right yeah and on that note is it malays or molesters. It's i guess it depends on whether i don't know should i go back and say malays me own preference thing. I think that malev sounded very sophisticated. It did. It's ended various tar jay instead of target..

"But it's like I mean, whatever like I need the machine I needed Michelle's now. Yes, it's such a significant piece of equipment than hospitals. Don't have like a lot of them kicking around. Yeah. Basically and Brigham and women's hospital in children's hospital for people that don't Boston are basically shared hospitals. They're literally connected connected by this bridge. And so I've done rotations of these hospitals in women will deliver at Brigham. And if they need specialty pediatric Nick you care like their child can go to children's in. There is a bridge that the doctors in the moms and everyone just walked back in cross like over the street. Like on the second or third level of the hospitals. You can just walk out. It's connected to danafarber to the cancer yet. It's this huge huge complex at Longwood medical center and B. I Beth Israel's right across the street. Although not connected. So so then you get to children's and what happens now that you reported about they always leave your on your chilling out. Yeah. I know I know that I was having kind of opposite issues. I was bleeding too much. But I also had a blood clot. So they were giving me both anticoagulant. And I don't know what you'd call it like a anti anticoagulant to kind of deal with both this like excessive bleeding and the clot. It was it was one of my legs. And it got to the point where they were like if we don't get this like rolling if we don't get this clot figured out. Like me might have. She might lose the leg. Which is pretty scary in like I feel like thank God. It didn't happen. I think I think that was part of the decision return. This transition. From the echo into the by was by it's less likely to clot them echo. Remembering again, and then also it's a little more it's closed. So there would be less of an issue of them excessive bleeding, so because you know, I feel like most of your listeners probably are fairly up on their medical knowledge, but blood should be in your body. Not everyone's medical. I mean, some people who'll stories I mean, I was trying to talk to as if people are not medical and because also like. I don't work with echoes imbibe ZIM regular day-to-day like if you wanna talk about diabetes management guy. I am your girl. But I don't work with by that. So I mean, explain to me like, I'm too, you know, 'cause I don't know.

"Brigham Jenner Willie is the president and CEO of Texas financial advisory. I'm Mark Elliott. Glad you're with us today. And we're talking about some of the things you need to know before you make that decision to leap off the working truck and get into that retirement area. And it's really a great time of your life. If you've got a plan in place, that's the TEFA financial freedom road map that Brooklyn our team can put together for you. Because if you have a plan in place, and you've got a little bit more clarity about where you are. Instead of just I think, I'm okay, I hope I'm okay, I don't really know for sure this is an area where you Brooklyn can certainly help you eight four four eight three to seventy four sixty nine Brooklyn. If we went back to two thousand eight the banking and housing. Financial crisis or we go back to the early two thousands where we had nine eleven we had the dot com. Bubble bursting we had a lot of things going on. And and really on Wall Street that decade two thousand two thousand nine is looked at as the lost decade that is one of the challenges if you're retiring in two thousand and eight had everything put in place, you know, the market rebounded from the dot com. Bubble bursting you're thinking, we're in pretty good shape. And then all of a sudden you retire and the bottom drops out of the market. That is a challenge if you haven't made some adjustments in your portfolio, but I would imagine. Yeah. Definitely. And so one of the things that we talk about a lot with our clients is not just diversifications that it's about rebalancing and understanding the what we call sequence risk. And as you know, Mark, we have a TV show. And and you if you don't have a chance to catch it on TV, we have it on our website at Texas financial advisory dot com, but one of the segments on there is my absolute favorite segments because it talks about this sequence risk, and that's taking your money from. Your investments to live upon but not understanding how to appropriately allocate the investment because typically investing the way you were the the way you were when you were working doesn't work when you retire. And I've had this discussion with people time and time again, they'll show the walk in for their analysis. And they'll be like, well, I think I'm doing pretty good. My counts averaged an eight percent return. I heard that Dave Ramsey said that I should, you know, find something that's averaging twelve percent returns, the more aggressive and take out eight percent cash flow. I mean that is just a disaster waiting to happen, right? Then and there because the point here is that even if you average eight percent return, if we go back, historically, and we look at say like the last fifteen years of those investments you'd see that you you lost seventeen at one point. It went up twenty three it's a yoyo. Right. And so to be able to take out income systematically from an investment that's not geared towards income. It could definitely deplete that account really quickly. So only talk about sequence res-. We're talking about timing the withdrawals. Not timing timing, the withdrawals that the person takes to create this systematic income plan for them, and it's vitally important for a person to position their assets in such a way that it's going to help minimize the impact of any sort of sort of market downturn. And how that would affect the overall assets that they've set aside for retirement now to help minimize that risk. Your assets are going to be victimized by plain old bad timing. So when it comes to your financial future coming up short with your monthly income is is not gonna work. It's not acceptable. That is a surefire way to have anxiety and feel like you need to go back to work. And so you just need the assurance that the sources that you're gonna be drawing your income from such as your 4._0._1._K your social security, the like that they're going to provide the means to to give you that lifestyle that you've.

He played golf at bring him. He's got a whole bunch of kids. Yeah. You have a question. I do another Johnny Miller question. He wanted tournament late in his career, very unexpected anybody. Remember when and where that was. Yeah. I do remember Scotty was Pebble Beach. He won his last two tournaments. It will beach. You. Remember what year it was? It was it was in nineteen ninety four. He won in nineteen ninety four. And I gotta do my math. I'm not sure nobody was making ninety four forty six years old. That was probably your next question. No, no. It wasn't. That was good. Thanks so much. Thanks grant, west pretty to me before you though. Player. Barry, ironically, he that's that's where he wants his final tournaments was Pebble Beach. No kidding. I found that interesting because our friend Ben Crenshaw's last tournament victory was the beginning July masters masters at Augusta National it's interesting had Johnny Miller one at Pebble Beach. Okay. Here's a question. Cameron champ. The young guy who drives it forever and a day in the top sixty four thousand eight Jordan's. I believe he is pretty close if he's not already that would be a great interest because he played golf Texas yesterday at the Phoenix Open Cameron champ. White shoe a black shoe during the second round. Why did he do that? He's an Aggie. Hey, I've seen it basketball. First time and golf. Well, this is this is interesting. It is black history month February is black history month and Cameron championship. Grandfather is black. He's comes from a mix race family and to honor his grandfather and to think about black history month, he wore a black shoe, and a white shirt isn't that he's a young guy who went to Texas ain't and my first thought was Aggie forgot his shoes. Effect you. That's what I thought yesterday to. That's unbelievable. It really is June. I've already talked about this with the Super Bowl demar. Yeah. I want these guys tell me it's not really trivia what in your opinion is the worst referee call in Super Bowl history. It holds your answer. Because I know what it is just think about all the Super Bowls. And what do you think there haven't been that many really to tell you the truth really bad calls, not as agreed? It was last week do Orleans, but in my lifetime, and my shipper watching there was a really bad, call could even tell you. I couldn't either when it gets my favorite team at the time. Scotty, go ahead. Tell him when it was Super Bowl five Dallas Cowboys and they ended our colts Baltimore Colts. They ended up losing sixteen to thirteen. What happened was the Cowboys were ahead. Thirteen to six driving for the game. Good rabbit for touchdown driving for a touchdown in the early in the fourth quarter, Duane Thomas from the one yard line is hit fumbles the ball into the end zone. The referees almost immediately signalled Baltimore. Yeah. But almost at the same time the Cowboys center, Dave Manders jumps up by gotta Hayes. He's holding the ball. Well, what are you talking about? Yeah. So and it ends up. The after that URL moral comes in places. Four touchdown, Pat. And then we lose on the Jim O'Brien field game, Jordan. You're too young to remember Duane Thomas. He played for the Cowboys number thirty three. But DeWayne Thomas was a guy who boycotted the media that entire Super Bowl year. Verne Lundquist helped tells me about this evening talk to burn Lundquist. But he did one interview I guess when the Cowboys won their first Super Bowl, and they asked him what about playing in the Super Bowl the way he said, well, if it's so super while they planted the next year. Good answer. It was rent. I know you gotta leave Longhorn basketball fell today to Iowa State tough tough loss are the number one team in the nation. Tips off in about sixteen minutes over and station, your friend, Rick Barnes, and the Tennessee volunteer. It's tonight in college station. You gotta be happy for Rick Barnes, your son. Brad played for America, Texas. I talked to him the other day. He is so different than he was when he was here. He's com. He's collected. He's happy. He's he's he's really in a good place. I'm really happy for Rick. Yeah. Never won a nation. They're favored by eleven tonight. Over the aggies of Texas, ain't it what was it three years? He'd be gone three years. I guess this is his third year is thirty four. Kazakh is this chocolate fourth year? Yeah. Fourth year. It's a question, and nobody likes to see anybody lose a job or get fired. But this team all our basketball team is woefully underachieving. But it was a good win against Kansas certain candidate played great, by the way for those who you think Kansas DA, Kansas throttled, Texas Tech this afternoon. So it's a very even big twelve big twelve conference. I understand they lost their questionable player for two seasons. You know, it's a question of where you don't lose him first semester. Seasons. Wow. There's.
