"Thank you so much for tuning back in. Today i have the privilege of hosting jim. Nassir on the podcast. He is the ceo at acor. They're developing usable. Interoperable blockchain enabled technologies for healthcare. Jim is an experienced technology. Executive and software architect building innovative software for healthcare. I'm really excited to talk to you today. Jim about the work. You guys are doing there and share it with our listeners. And so before we go forward with some of the discussion i love. If you could just finish up that intro with any anything that you may wanna share. Beyond what i already have. Yes hi sal. Thanks so much for the invitation. And i appreciate your interest in Really delighted to be on the the the folks that you have spoken. Thank you for that paternity So we're going to wrap up if you like. You're very kind introduction really. I'm a technology professional if you like it kind of architect by profession have been an entrepreneur for longtime as well at my own business for a fourteen years or so and then You know moved on from that This on my own. Thanks for a little while. i was at the centre. Disease control for wireless And helped modernize some of that technology particularly the the scientific application portfolio technology at agency and really as as you kind of rounded it up over less Nine months in Really gonna full-time back at acor Running our software development business and really very much focused on healthcare very much. I guess we're less six seven years being in healthcare. I guess things that i would like to see differently done differently and perhaps valued at. I think we can add collectively that you know. We don't necessarily see so. That's really the motivation. I is like all of us solid personal reasons and personal stories in there that maybe we're the us you know. Motivated into healthcare. Is something not usery. Consider as easy to break into. So you only my case at Personal suggestions particularly my my family. Aware i've seen really hot healthcare's just just really not delivered right news right at you know it really For amount of money that's spent in amount of The percentage of the gross domestic product. That is dedicated to it. Really under deliberation and at the core let's individuals down so all those things of behind my motivations Being the space i man. I think there's an opportunity for technologies like myself to to get aid this and really kind of make a difference in That's what we're trying to do. Wasa jam and yeah you know. There's a lot of money to you know really to get a product that is not the best that it could be and i. I was just talking to a friend this morning and he said that he needed a stress test and that the test is eighteen thousand dollars. I and i'm like man that's like a couple of hours eighteen grand. Oh man and he had a copay of eighteen hundred. he's like man. I don't even think i'm going to do it. And this happens too often where where something is not probably priced the way that it should be. It's overpriced and and And people don't get it because now employers are also offsetting their cost because it's getting Ridiculous so couldn't agree with you more their jam and Appreciate you you Mentioning you're very strong will and your strong purpose for being in the business thank you. Yes an hannah's funny mentioned eighteen thousand dollars. I think for many people deja is they don't even know what the price is in fact even after the events when you come back and see the bill you really cannot explain it. I've been there myself with again with my family where there are bills that literally. Nobody can explain they just you around from one place and other when nobody can explain hotter pricing constructed or what the items really kind of map to a and mrs kind of opaqueness up pricing. Is you know again. You look at almost any industry. Think on earth could industry even remotely in business in this age. Pricing is so kind of a secret damon peg is just like you have to be a member of the luminosity to having about it now. But that's reality. What we deal with you know. Most of us basically are exhausted into submission right because You know we're like it's just not even worth amount of effort because You know you just don't get it consumes so many cycles though you kinda like beaten up so jim yeah i agree and tell me a little about about a core and how the business is adding value to the ecosystem. Yeah sure Think a good job explaining really. What our mission magazine. We're we're here to build modern usable. Essentially real time healthcare technologies. We we have a focus on technologies. That really by enlarged. Like in my mind provide computational proof of transactions writing and hence the blocking labeling. But i think you know again. I think it's important for us to not get sidetracked by blockchain or any other kind of exotic technology per se. Because they're really just able only blocked jamie in many ways. Infrastructure is You know what. Smtp is to email as example so like twenty years ago back in the early you know kind of days of internet. I've been talking about things like these are underlying protocols. So that's kind of if you like a kind of a car. Larry ware blog. Chamier's this as a underlying protocol for trust trust so but oldest adding bid the real application. They're all value is can you especially in a world where we all know again. Unfortunately it's very evident right now with with this Kobe nineteen kind of pandemic. They're going through win a world where data and suddenly healthcare data is. You know he can't necessarily trust it right. He can't trust this Origins you can actually trust stopping manipulated. Not dimension has he gets relayed through various channels and social media. Whatever holiday additional you know coach fake. You know imports and agendas that are of attaches things so our thinking is we can do better right and we can make health data much more accountable and we can prove it and prove it aside up like jim or acor in one entity so so you could use a public ledger. If you wanted to and just verified for yourself he could have this global infrastructure that they can use in real. Time to prove provenance information. That you know the information you're looking at at least can be trusted in the sense that it wasn't manipulated along the way. So that's that's fundamentally what we're trying to do you know. Obviously we have some applications that go one level higher from this isn't for instance provide real time visualization of data all ethics. And things. like this but to me really. The core concept is. Can you actually trust that data. I can't then insides machine. Learning whatever you get from it is going to be suspect. Yeah no i. I think that's a good call out and put a what do we do. You got that bill and you didn't know would it. Would it even meant. I've been there too. I i've gotten a bill from you. Know my son got a little his. He fell in opened up. And then get stitches. And this and that and i mc.

"The centers disease control now is exercising more plenary power over the people of these united states than king george. The third ever had a wet dream and fantasized. About the supreme court told biden and cdc your mandate and your eviction moratorium is over one of they do waylon folks. We're surrounded by lawlessness. Now what do they do. Yeah i heard you It's more important there. Cdc's more more important and the cdc issued an eviction moratorium. I am not a private property owner of rental properties. But if i were. And i had someone squatting on my property. I'm gonna i'm gonna have standing. I'm going to challenge day. Because i'm gonna victim and i'm gonna ask my sheriff. What law do you obey. The laws of this state. English common law and private property rights or rachel. Wolinsky pretty simple. I have a right to my property. You being my sheriff. My highest ranking constitutional off officer or officer in this jurisdiction. You have a responsibility to defend that right. In this instance randy smith my friend randy. What are you going to do. These are simple questions. We need to start asking them. Look i'm not in any of these positions. If i were i would ask them. I'm not a parent. Don't have a kid going to a government school. I am a taxpayer though. And i'm taxed to pay for that school. So i suppose i speak out a under those conditions. I'm not a private property owner. And i don't i'm not running to anyone But people that are rent renters and have the corona scofflaws that squatting on your property kick them out demand your sheriff do his f ing job that is to protect your rights. When are we going to have to go to the constitution. This is the natural law this is written in god's law thou shalt not steal the government confiscated. My property from me is taking. It's a theft. it's illegal it's immoral. it's unjustified it's an injustice..

"That's what he said the day before he became president of the united states. He put that on twitter on january nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. He put her on twitter. And now what's happening. what's happening. You demands for vaccine passports from the left. Now you've got you've got we're back to mass mandates. We're back to the. I guess we're going to have to remotely. I tell you if you go through remote learning you are going to see a massive rebellion. You will see a massive rebellion across the nation from parents if you shut down schools and some states are thinking of doing it. Some cities are thinking. They may do it. You've got the teachers. Unions have come back and said well we. We may need to sail remote learning. It's not gonna help on top of that you've got the evictions. This is the big topic of the day. The democrats are complaining about. And i need to put this in perspective for you. The centers for disease control and prevention issued an eviction moratorium and they extended it and essentially the centers disease control and prevention said that a landlord is not allowed to evict a someone lists leasing from number renting from them during the pandemic under this mandate saw a hell a lot of people have been renting houses and they haven't had to pay rent and they can't get thrown out now. A lot of them have continued to pay rent but they stopped paying rent. They could be effected at the switch of the supreme court of the supreme court at the end of the supreme court term said that Brett cavill actually. It was a five four decision in brett cavanaugh. Said you know. I'm actually with the minority on this. I think the cdc has the power to do this. But it's going to be gone in a few weeks and it would be reckless for us to go on up into today while they need to wind it down in the next next couple of weeks so cavenaugh made very clear. If it came back he would vote against it. So the cdc in the bite administration no they cannot impose a new eviction moratorium. They've got to have congress do it. Nancy pelosi cannot get the democrats to agree alexandru causing cortez and the squad are camping out on the steps of the capitol and all over the place demanding that they redo the eviction moratorium. Well i think there's a couple of of issues here. First of all you are absolutely correct and that the house in house leadership had the opportunity to vote to extend the moratorium and there were many sprinkler a handful of conservative democrats in the house threaten to get on planes rather than hold this vote and we have to Really just call a spade. We cannot in good faith. Blame the republican party. When house democrats majority now there is something to be said for the fact that this court order came down the white house a month ago and the white house waited until the day before the house adjourned to release a statement asking on congress to extend the moratorium. This came after weeks. I said on the financial services committee which has jurisdiction over housing. We had you know the housing secretary they're asking about the administration stance We asked.

"I am so pleased to welcome. Michael lewis to the broadcast to michael is the bestselling author of books ranging from liar's poker moneyball the blind side the big short and the undoing project. His latest book which was just released is the premonition a pandemic a pandemic story he's also the moderator of a podcast called against the rules. He's the rare author who has defied being pigeonholed and is in the enviable position of allowing his experiences. And meetings he has with interesting. People suggest the topics that he covers one of the most noted storytellers of his generation. John williams interview the new york times book review said. I'd read an eight hundred page history to stapler if he wrote it. I think i would do. Frankly michael welcome. It's great to see you as always so you can always tell when someone doesn't actually mean what they say when they say frankly you would not. There's no way on earth you would read eight hundred page history stapler. If i wrote it. And i wouldn't read it either but thank you thank. You might give it a try though michael just to see if you can pull it off the fact that you made credit default swaps so interesting that it was made into a movie. I mean that's that's really mind. Boggling argus i put it this way if somehow someone contrived to use a stapler bring down civilization then yes i would write in eight hundred page history of the stapler. That's fantastic well. Good well i do want to get into the thick of your new book The premonition a pandemic story your last book michael. The fifth risk was about the transition from the obama administration to the trump administration and the premonition began in the last year of the trump administration. And i must say given the title and given the topic clearly a pandemic story. I thought that trump would likely be the the antagonists the villain of this as he was One could certainly argue in the fifth. Risk and i. It was fascinating though you mentioned him and you don't don't certainly don't give him any credit That you don't believe to be deserved. But the villain in this one really is the center disease control if anything and a lot of institutions that were have not been operating as they should. I wonder if you could start here at the outset of our conversation with some of the main sins you saw that the cdc undertook. So i don't think my book the way you think of my book i think so i think of the the the villain the antagonised to the to the protagonists is is the system of which the cdc plays a very important role. But it's the the three main characters are operating in a world that screwed up it's screwed up in a whole bunch of ways and one of the ways that screwed up is the incentive structure in the cdc and and and y you know if you ask me after the.

"It doesn't really spread and Children aren't really at risk. So really, the whole idea of closing the schools and closing that down is totally against the scientific, no model that they're actually putting together that it's actually Ah worth was state the thing to do And so it's more of a political definitely. Politics has to do with the closing of the schools, and it's really we should have all the schools open and really even Ah, to college. Really. None of the school system should be closed. A lot of parents who have been inconvenienced and trying to do school at home and all the kids who have fallen behind. Now you tell us, you know what I mean. But again, that's that's what we're kind of finding out is what's working. What's not And again, it was they pretty well had said that, but they really come out strongly and say Hey, we said Don't close the schools and you guys were still closed. Closing the schools because of political pressure. Don't do that. We're actually causing more harm than we're actually helping. And really, there's you know, it makes absolutely no difference. On how the covert 19th being spread. So stop it. Hmm. So, you know if you're saying this center disease control, the World Health organization said, Hey, this is this is actually become We're actually causing a lot of harm health wise and I developmentally and socially with this whole process, And for all those parents who had to stay home with their kids during this this time or Have all these types of things going on home schooling, and we learned the learning and it has all been a total waste of effort along those lines. Interesting. We'll talk about the RNA vaccines, their revolution in vaccinations. Well, that's what they're saying. This is the first vaccination that came out as an R in a type of a vaccination. And that was one of the reasons that it was able to come out so quickly because what you're doing is you're not taking the virus, the Edna virus and then putting it into the vaccination. Now you're getting are in a and RNA doesn't keep you from getting the infection. What it does. What it's supposed to do is boost your immune system. So it really starts to change how your body responds, and that's something that they're hoping to make A vaccination for a lot of the diseases are out there. Malaria, dengue a all those different types of things. And be able to make quick vaccinations. It actually changes how your body responds, so it actually changes the basis of how your body actually works. So And of course, this is one of the things that they've come on and said, Well, you know this is changing the DNI and how the body works, and we don't really know what kind of ramifications it has. Vaccines, right? The vaccinations? Yeah. So, you know, we're kind of saying the people who are actually developing like Bill Gates and all those air extremely excited about this. That it would be a real answer on boosting immune system of people changing them into a stronger, healthier group. Rne, the RNA vaccinations and something that they're very want to get everybody done with. So they're working on that right now. Well, they've actually got that. This is the first one. This is kind of like the test one. Okay, And then they're hoping to actually come out with quite a few other ones there along those lines, and one of the things is that when a new infection comes along, then that is something that they would be able to make vaccination. Whether quickly Much quicker than what they had before, and it could be revolutionary in health care. But again, we're at the very beginnings of it. And there are people who are actually saying well. You know, we don't really know. What does this mean? Because you are changing a lot of the basic function of the human body on a genetic basis s O again, you know excitement, but a word of caution and We'll wait and see and see what happens. Wait and see. Yeah. So everybody has this question. I have this question. When will we get back to normal? Put those things normal. Yes, they do not expect 2021 to go back to normal. They're hoping for 2022, probably in the spring. So this is something that we playing out for a while now. Our response to it is what we will see whether we change our response. We are learning as we go. We have found that the school closings are ineffective. Now, if you're getting lockdowns from other countries in the spread of it, that does make a difference. Like New Zealand. They were they are out in the ocean and Think keep anybody from coming in than that actually works pretty well. But there hasn't been a huge statistical difference on the countries that lockdown extremely on those that didn't walk down at all. In their numbers and numbers. You really sweet in there was really no difference between here in the United States and Sweden didn't lock down anything. They didn't close any restaurants that includes anything Mm hmm. So there wasn't really in, you know, Statistically, it's maybe two. Maybe 3%, which there can be statistical error on that. So again, you know, with the old school closing, we absolutely 100% no that that was damaging that caused a lot more harm with really no benefit. That was a very poor choice on the lockdowns. That is also something that the jury is out on. We don't have enough data, but the evidence on that is for the United States. It probably didn't make any difference. And put 30 million people out of work and a huge amount of problems and sufferings. So we'll see what what we actually come up with on that, and with a verdict is Now. What about the next pandemic? What? Ah, yes. Munna asked that question. Yeah, but, you know, we've got the two different types of new covered 19 out there. We've got the UK was got thesis. Ouch! African and we got the Brazil And each of those, they have actually come up with the conclusion that there are more contagious and more deadly. And then there is the pig quote a virus that could go into the human population was found in China. It's found in China, which is actually more contagious and more deadly. And then there's also a new strain of flu that has been found in China. So I'm sorry. Yeah, that that wasn't and you got any good news. Whoa way are learning quite a bit, You know, on what works and what doesn't And, you know, I mean, this is what it comes down to. You know, when we're talking about this whole cove in 19 again, it's important to remember that 26% of the people are completely me into it. You know that There's really no problems. 40% get it and show no symptoms. We have 20% who have mild to moderate symptoms, and then it's really 14% of the population that is at risk. And 14% of the population is at risk for most of these pandemics. You know, what do you do to keep from getting into that? 14%? Will you take care of yourself? You know, you take care of your vitamins. You know, you keep your health your mental, So that's one of the things we're going to talk about. Yes, When we come back, we're going to talk about our supplements necessary. Some will be right back. You can win a free 60 minute massage and are relaxing spot at the Prater practice each month.

"Free Todd. Live call in talk about whatever's on your mind number 632836160 that 63 2836160. Mark with you, nobody and Angie, so the accusation is on the table by nobody and I am not averse to this accusation. Nobody's saying that. Yeah. Um, Pope? Nobody has that. So your Your accusation is briefly. What? Uh, they've whacked a bunch of people to get the body count up in ordered by former putting by biological warfare by putting, uh people they knew to be sick. Into nursing homes with the people most vulnerable to the disease in order to kill off a whole bunch of people and make the uh the make people believe the branch Covidien prophecy that we were all going to die of ago. It's so, um, and you know it's a serial to me. I believe that it happened. Go, and I don't know that I would believe that it was necessarily intentional. So let's hear the rebuttal from this is coming from K h in dot ord and see what they have to say about all of this So far, what they've got is that the the nursing homes were mistaken when nice when the statement that it was required that they take these patients was interpreted as a requirement that they take these patients that Correct. It appears the the at this point. The rebuttal to your statement is flimsy, um, should not have believed they mean they meant what they said. Yeah. Uh, going on here. The backstory is as the virus tour through nursing homes, killing dozens of some in some of them. Cuomo came under withering censure his administration's policy implemented with an eye towards freeing up hospital beds for an onslaught of coat covert patients that never came. Seemed to disregard the risks too frail, frail and elderly, nursing home residents who are especially vulnerable to this disease, as in being the only people who die of it. Now, I will say this. I have given up the position that somehow this is not in somewhere another a state. Created and perhaps even state propagated disease. I I believe that it is S O. You know if you're going to try to kill people off the best people to kill off for the old because they're holding their hoarding all the money they have all the medical care they needed. They cost the most. And you know all that money when it's freed up, you know, the one out of 20 old people that actually has the money left after you know the terrible medical system. It's in the United States and around the world. This is even better. Once they're gotten rid of them. The money goes into circulation. Their Children are much more likely to spend it. Then you have the velocity of money and these sorts of things. I don't have proof for my statement. I've just stopped believing that this was some kind of naturally occurring accident from bat gobbling, okay? I'm done with that. Going on. According to the cove in tracking Project 6624 6600 people have died of covert 19 in nursing homes and other long term care facilities. In New York, accounting for 26% of the state's This is obviously old numbers, and it's a relatively old article to 25,000 covert deaths. Some say the true number of the deaths is much higher because unlike many states Here you are, Richard. I want wanted You remember that point. New York does not count the deaths of former nursing home residents who are transferred the hospitals and die in the hospital as a nursing home death. So if you got sick in a nursing home in New York state, you are not a nursing home death. If you die in the hospital, you have to die in the nursing home. So it's just like and the other random person who died of coveted salads picked, it says counted. This is, you know, essentially the government's version of three card Monte, right? You know, Watch the numbers. Here we go Toe. Where's Monty? For us, But the old people got the full Monte Then did they did most explanation for the policy that he was simply following the guy was his explanation for the policy is this he was simply following guidance from the federal centers. Disease Control and Prevention didn't cut it. A recent politic fact piece examining his claim is rated it mostly false. In May, the governor amended the March order prohibiting this is by Maia's a mid May I think, um, prohibiting hospitals from discharging patients to nursing homes unless they tested negative for covert 19. So you can't get out unless you don't have covert 19. Here's something you can get in. If you have it. Here's something worth reporting, right so you can get covert 19. Be done with covert 19 effectively and still test positive for additional year. Mm. PCR test positive. So when you're dealing with a person and nursing if you're dealing with, say you, Angie, who are I don't know. Just over 25. Yeah, I suspect you're somewhere in your 38 late thirties, right? So, But you you look darn good for it. Thanks. The S O. You know if you went in and you got sick, you happen to go the hospital you recover. You're gonna want to go home. And so the hospital wants to get rid of you. You go home. Write a nursing home. Patient has to go back to the nursing home. So the hospital can't get rid of them and send them home. So they're comic stuck. This is the difficulty is is that hospitals are stuck with these people for a long time. As a result of this, So you got to give him a good period of time. Did maybe get a second infection? Maybe. Maybe, And you get a time we count? I don't know about getting twice, but you can have it for a long time. And and still be contagious. If you've cleared up your symptoms right? The new rules said that they couldn't send them back to a nursing home with a positive test. Okay, so the being positive doesn't mean you're sick with Cove it but it may mean that you can still transmit it. You may be contagious, but the CDC says 14 days, right and you better so It gets complicated in the early days of the cove in 19 pandemic when New York was the epicenter and Maura than 1000 people were being hospitalized daily. This is genuine fear that hospitals would not be able to accommodate the influx of desperately ill patients. Moving people out of the hospitals in the nursing homes was one strategy to help hospitals meet these needs. So remember, I get you know, as far as the explanation goes so far, I'm getting it. But these are the same people these Democrats cause this was this was Ah Trump Appointee, leveling a charge Democrats. The Democrats had no problem of leveling charges that Trump I recall Kamila Harris. Saying during the campaign. Essentially the Trump administration was responsible 200,000 deaths, So you know, whatever. We're so e. I just don't agree with either side in this, the Republicans or the Democrats, just a bunch of partisans lobbying poet each other for as I'm concerned..

As syphilis invades rural America, a fraying health safety net is failing to stop it

"Him at least let's shift gears as we normally do. So let's just move on. Who'd like to talk about committee, actually, not committee tonight lease but sip bliss. And you know, what for once? We're not kidding. No. We're not in this case. And it's really kind of. I don't know. I haven't heard about syphilis in a while have you now. But apparently it's rapidly spreading in rural America. All right, public health officials saying rule countries countries count hesitate. He said across the midwest and west of becoming the new battleground all right syphilis is still concentrated in cities like San Francisco, right or Landau, right Vegas. It's now spreading to places like Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Oklahoma, and all these all these challenges that are around it because the urban hubs rural populations tend to have obviously less access to the public health resources. Basically, you gonna drive fifty miles going to a hospital. Right.
