Changes in thinking about blood pressure

"Or high blood pressure is a common condition. It's the most common reason that adults visit their doctor's office. There is considerable debate about what constitutes normal blood pressure, and depending on whose data is cited roughly half the people with high blood pressure. Do not have adequate blood pressure control, but in part this is because in 2017, the American Heart Association lowered the threshold for. For what defines hypertension from one forty over ninety to one thirty over eighty before the new definition, thirty percent of Americans had high blood pressure after the new definition, the number jumped to forty six percent, the same population of people, just a new definition of what constitutes the disease. This is an additional thirty. One Million Americans labeled as diseased for a total of one hundred and three million Americans with high blood pressure. It used to be that the ideal blood pressure was simply the average of all adult blood pressure's, but then came autopsy studies of soldiers who died in the Korean War those revealed that about two-thirds of these young Americans already had early signs of heart disease. Then the Framingham study revealed that there was an association between elevated blood pressure and heart disease, and then came studies showing that if you lowered blood pressure, you also lowered the risk of heart disease, and that sort of where we are today. Hypertension is more common in older people compare to younger people, which brings me to an interesting article published in Jama. The so-called optimize study included only people older than eighty who were being treated for high blood pressure with at least two different medications. We know that older people who take more than one blood, pressure, medicine, or prone to dizziness and falls and other side effects, so do these people really need this cocktail of different high blood pressure pills, so these researchers asked when people stopped taking one blood pressure medicine did they have dangerous increases in blood pressure? Half of the group had one medication de prescribed in other words discontinued the other continued on with their usual medications. They were followed for about three months for those who had one medication stopped. It turned out that eighty six percent of the patients blood pressure remained under control now in contrast, eighty eight percent of people who had no changes made to their blood pressure also had their blood pressure under control, so there really was no difference between the two groups. The study lasted only three months, which is too short to see if the changes in the drugs had any impact on the length of life or the quality of life, but reducing unnecessary, second or third blood pressure medications may both decrease dangerous side effects, which can lead to decrease, falls and fractures and head injuries and reduce the cost of medications for the elderly.

Are Ventilators Actually Helping?

"We've focused on ventilators on this podcast. Because they seem to be the prime medical intervention we have at the moment but more troubling data has come out about how effective ventilators are to affect covert outcomes at all a new blood. Clotting complication is worrying another look at New Zealand where they're so successful against the disease. Their goal is now to eradicate it and a snapshot at the realities of Testing through the lens of one small Texas town. The numbers are all over the place this morning. Iran reported the lowest number of daily new infections and month and new infections in Russia fell for the second day in a row though. There are some who questioned the veracity of official numbers from those states. Meanwhile the number of cases and deaths in Germany and Spain jumped overnight cases in Germany increased by two thousand three hundred fifty two to total of one hundred. Forty eight thousand forty six and deaths increased by two hundred fifteen to five thousand ninety. Four Spain saw an increase of diagnosed cases from two hundred eight thousand three hundred eighty nine to two hundred thirteen thousand twenty four. While the number of deaths there was up by four hundred forty from the day earlier all that said across the board in more places we continue to see numbers plateauing up by a little somedays down by a little some days but there's no consistency in either direction. I E no run of down days in a row suggesting the curve has been broken and no run of up days in a row suggesting new sustained outbreaks new data. From New York's largest hospital system shows that eighty eight percents of Corona Virus. Patients who were placed on ventilators did not survive. Meanwhile doctors are seeing a mysterious complication involving blood clots showing up in many fatal. Cova nineteen cases quoting the Washington Post. A paper published in the Journal. Jama about New York. State's largest health system suggests a reality that like so much else about the novel. Corona virus confounds our early expectations. Researchers found that twenty percent of all those hospitalized died a finding that similar to the percentage who perish in normal times among those who are admitted for respiratory distress. But the numbers diverge more for the critically ill put on ventilators eighty eight percents of the three hundred twenty. Cova nineteen patients on ventilators. Who were trapped in the study died that compares with the roughly eighty percent of patients who died on ventilators before the pandemic according to previous studies and with the roughly fifty percent death rate some critical care doctors had optimistically hoped when the first cases were diagnosed and quotes in other words based on that data being put on a ventilator essentially saves no lives beyond what would have been expected suggesting that ventilators are ineffective in reversing cove in nineteen outcomes quoting again. The paper also found that of those who died. Fifty seven percent had hypertension forty one percent were obese and thirty four percent had diabetes which is consistent with risk factors listed by the Centers for Disease Control and prevention noticeably. Absent from the top of the list was asthma. As doctors and researchers have learned more about Kobe nineteen the less it seems that asthma plays a dominant role in outcomes. One other surprising findings from the study. Was that seventy percent of the patients. Sick enough to be admitted to the hospital did not have a fever. Fever is currently listed as the top symptom of Kovic nineteen by the CDC and for weeks many testing centers for the virus turned away patients if they did not have one. Davidson said that as a result of those findings north well is encouraging people with underlying health conditions such as hypertension and diabetes who are potentially exposed to the virus and who might not have a fever to consult with a doctor sooner rather than later and quotes.

Solvable Presents: Help in a Crisis

"Hi It's Michael Lewis here. I'm nearly finished with the next season of against the rules. It's like last season in some ways. I'm talking with people about inequality in American society and what it's doing to our idea of fairness but this time only telling the story through the Lens of coaching and coaches the edge that coaches can give people and who doesn't get that edge in our society as we all know things are not normal right now. That's why we're bringing you this extra bonus episode. I guess I should. I say I'm still alive and so far disease-free but I've been doing a lot of interviews lately with people who dedicated their careers to helping other people. This is an especially good time to be talking to people like this. So you're GONNA get to hear a couple of their conversations right now. Here's a guy whose work is also really relevant right now. His name is Jimmy Chen and he left behind a fancy career in Silicon Valley to build an APP which is called fresh E. bt it helps people on food stamps. Well let's actually formerly known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program there about forty million Americans who accesses program. They get funds once a month on a car that looks more like a gift card than an ATM card. And most of the state programs don't have an easy way to let people know how much is left on their car. They don't even know their balances. So it's it's hard to budget and make smart decisions. That's a problem at anytime but it's a huge problem right now with so much food insecurity in our economy and Jimmy's got a solution. Jimmy thanks for joining me so Are there peculiar anxieties? That you sort of saying in response to this virus in the population that you serve. Well we've seen a lot of people concerned about not being able to purchase more toilet paper and I think that's the thing that You know people are often cracking jokes about in the general population. Why are you stocking up on toilet paper right now but when we talk to our users about that specific situation they actually have a very real need there for a lot of our users. They can't afford to purchase things like toilet paper in bulk and so they are purchasing toilet paper every time they go grocery shopping or on a very frequent cadence and so if the grocery store is sold out of toilet paper. That's a real problem because they don't have a backup supply that they can use and so a lot of people are really worried about that. So it's interesting because no one has explained to me why the that shelf and no other shelf in the grocery store. Except maybe the disinfectant shelf is empty. Yeah I mean. I don't know which way the flywheel started on this particular one but I know that for low income folks who maybe haven't had the resources to go out and stock up on Toilet Paper. It is a different level of scary. Okay so let me back up a minute. Let's just start a little bit about you and what you do like what your company is short. So I'm the founder and CEO of propel were technology company that aims to help people who are low income. The United States to navigate safety net programs like the food stamp program to improve their overall financial health. We build a free smartphone. App called the fresh UBT APP. That helps somebody who gets food stamp benefits or snap benefits on an e bt card to see how much they have left in benefits but also to connect to a variety of different social services to save money and to find different ways that they can earn more cash. Are you already seeing an uptick in users in response to what's going on in the economy right now we are seeing about thirty percent more usage each day than we normally do and to be clear those are for people who are already using fresh bts so we have also seen a lot of stats about how enrollment in the food? Stamp Program has gone up dramatically over the past week but the weight of the Food Stamp Program has actually structured. Those enrollments don't become actual cases usually for about a month and so we would see that a month later as people enroll in the program. So you're always seeing. What are you imagine is going to happen over the next few months? Well I think there are a couple of different populations that are worth thinking about here. The first are the people that are already getting food stamps. Now so you know there are forty million Americans priors took ovid and all of this crazy pandemic stuff there. A forty million Americans that were already struggling to make ends meet in a normal economy These are the folks that are already using the food stamp program. The majority of them are working and have children Just trying to pay the bills so those are the people who use fresh. Et now and they're facing a very specific set of challenges as this is kind of the financial shock that is really putting the behind. There's a separate set of Americans that we can also talk about the the people that are probably one or two tiers of income higher than that Maybe have a little bit of savings cushion but not a ton and as a result of the economic shock. Here they're the ones who are newly applying for the program so I think those two groups are GonNa have different types of outcomes but face the same challenges but how big is that kind of food stamp adjacent population. Well there's that popular stat. That forty percent of Americans can't afford four hundred dollars shock right now. These are all of the Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck. And it's not necessarily the case that those folks are all very low income you could be making seventy or eighty or ninety thousand dollars a year and still be in that population of not being able to afford a four hundred dollar shock as we've spoken to our user base about what the past week has been like We have heard from people that eighty eight percent of people who get food stamp benefits. And we're working have had their hours cut or lost their jobs entirely and of those eighty eight percent the average amount in job earnings. That has been lost is five hundred dollars. So we're talking about this. Four hundred dollars shock. That was going to send people over the cliff. That shock has happened right so it makes what you do even more important. Yeah that's right I think broader than propel the reason I started propel. Was this notion that we have a safety net here in the United States. That people who go through financial hardship have a variety of resources provided by the public sector and the private sector and those resources are aimed to help people in financial need to get back on their feet and more broadly. I think you know this whole Kobe. One thousand nine mass is a real test of our safety. Net in the United States of NACHOS programs like food stamps or programs like Medicaid and unemployment. And so on that also have to pick up the slack and are seeing tons of more traffic these days as people are looking to these safety net programs to help them to get through this really unusual time. Alan good you start the company. I started the company about five and a half years ago. How did this happen? Well I grew up in a loving and supportive family that also experienced a financial shock and had trouble putting food on the table. I think most American families we were sort of on the edge financially and then when my dad lost his job when I was about ten we had a few years of just really tough Financial Times. I was fortunate to go to college on a full scholarship on financial need and then spent a few years working in different software companies in Silicon Valley after I graduated from college and one of the things that just really struck me after spending years working in Silicon Valley and these companies. Just how people solve the problems that they understand. And that's by enlarge the reason why so many products that come out of Silicon Valley are solving the problems of twenty to thirty year. Old Men. Yes who live in cities and have gone to College? Are there's a demographic biased to the software that we create due to the problems that tech entrepreneurs

Tips to Prepare for a Crashing Market

"The market's up the markets down what is going on in the market as we start this new deck well let's think about it thanks for having me on the show at the thing about it is is that everybody you see in the market go up and up and up and pretty much every day and here we are again after another I'm began but but people realize this that the party is going to be over at some point in time and my opinion else for what it's worth everybody has different I think one of the next crash is gonna be brutal and here's why I think that we've had a lead been years pretty much of gains in the market right Paula Chile is getting weird were having larger ships up and down a lot so just means rapid on critical of and we got all that that that trade stops gone I think we just saw something which China but there's always going to be that we got to death bobbled what we borrow more money than ever before crazy global economy as kind of slowing down the dollars week and I think there is a tremendous risk to the average Americans retirement accounts and savings and why do I say that if you have kids yeah now you ma'am when your kids get their first credit card has a thousand dollar limit and I go out and buy pizza and go drink and and they run their credit card up and then they got another credit card alternate pay off their first credit card with the second credit card god my my kids aren't that old yet but now you were raised some warning signs for me right we have twenty three trillion dollars national debt I mean I don't even know what that number looks like on paper one four four trillion dollars budget this year okay we got corporate barring I mean it's just that the market is getting weird and they did a survey all the big corporate financial officers yes bank and what percent do you think that the we're gonna have a huge economic slowdown or recession in twenty twenty one percent twenty I would say you have a high number may be fifty five K. K. ninety seven but there may yeah the last couple weeks okay and I read this quote okay ninety seven percent of CFO's query believe either economic slowdown a recessional occur before the end of twenty twenty eighty eight percent so my point is if you're listening if I'm feeling but I am because chances are you're not prepared and don't tell me have three pointers house bars your we time to catch it all about money yeah right right right okay so it's so you're ill prepared how do you if the market's going to go down it if all these indicators are there how do you survive that how do you even make money when something like that is happening in so many people are going to suffer they're gonna lose money yeah they're gonna listen to face problems first of all you have to know how do you hold on to what you got right now how do you stop that yeah all this doom and gloom comes true and it's not easy and we have a process to help people do that and then how do we make it grow because you just you just can't stop investing see the problem is we never talked about this Pat our company in this online trading academy was really misleading because it should be called the online trading and investing a cat because not everybody wants to be a traitor now right I understand that hello education is the only way you can you know you can't go to you tube go on those get rich quick videos you can ask your friend there yeah your financial advisors gonna check it what you will do Pat you need to cut back and cut out your lock days every day what about you yeah I stopped by my wife that this you could buy it that's what you look like a male the Marcos you need yeah now your date itself most people don't know about this well there's a there's a there's a a new documentary about her so all all I rely on that looking want to ask you the most basic question and please don't laugh at me what is it what's the difference between investing and trading okay good question trading is an activity designed to produce short term income as you think it but we have to put two buckets of money in our life we have our cash flow back at which is our salary and we have our our well market which is our retirement account and what we want to do when we're working our money from our cash flow Bakit beads and our west back and then when we retire the money in our wealth bucket but surround and that takes care of our cash needs okay the manager right so that's what you have learned how to manage that all right but I I just I don't know the difference between trading and investing secrets are traded because you're such an and great interviewer I just lost my train of thought out so anyway so trading as an activity designed to generate short term income the trading means you there's day trading which everybody thinks is crazy but it's not where you're in and out of the market the same day some people like that some people down and then there is swing trading which is where people are in the market for a week or two which is less stressful and then there's there's there's position trading where you're holding things for your retirement so position trading is actually investing where we're just now getting strategies were analyzing are now we're making little adjustments and quick so that we can maximize our games and minimize the risk involved okay that's that's your two cent definition all right and and you know what it's worth more than two cents because now I kind I understand the difference between it so this is very very good all right I'm another basic question things are crazy right now on the news lance there are raising their absolutely insane how much should investors and traders pay attention to what's going on in the news and how should they react to all that well it all day you never can understand all that because we got all the we got the internet we got podcast and all this stuff and so it's really kind of hard to say you just have to know that is what is not what you know the kills is what you don't know so the way to do it is to get the best education you can make sure you understand what's going on the market and that's what we do twenty two going on twenty three years online trading academy which should be online trading investment generally we know what we're doing and we don't promise you it's easy with I'll promise you you're going to get rich we don't study a you have to give up your lot days you know that when I do that right and and you do have a core strategy which is patented and that's exactly what we're talking about here so we have a pact that strategy that doesn't guarantee you're going to get rich but that's that's a that's an organized approach to being a successful trader and or investor you know what I love about this is that if he truly is and investment education it truly is a telling you about your own money what's happening with your money how you can use your money and how you may be able to use your money more wisely than it's being used right now because so many of us simply have it in one of these for a one case we put it in there because it just comes out of our paychecks and that's it we never pay any attention to it it's like every other thing this taken out of your paycheck it's just you know a day a deduction and we don't even look at it as something that could be helping us to establish our retirement yeah I think about every week money comes out of your paycheck so you're you're buying you don't know at what level you buy you don't know buying it the most expensive price is the last couple weeks so the least expensive you don't know what you're buying from some person sitting at a cable going New York City trading your money and you've ever met them or or how to do it you don't know what you're paying for whatever it is they're buying that you don't even know anything about you know when you put it in these terms lance it's crazy it's absolutely crazy okay so we all need investment education and this happened online trading academy where the classes take place I understand you are for the first one free yes we have an introductory class it's two hours I teach it it's lots of fun and I try to make it not boring we don't try to sell you a condo and now you're anything we're just what you want one that we can have those about now what we're trying to do is say here's what we do it you know you're going to outlive your money the next generation is gonna live twenty more years after they retire on the issue of mutual funds or eighty five percent of mutual funds don't beat the overall market your financial adviser is is it you know and the less you have like five ten million dollars you're just the number they don't care about you say you you got to do something and if you have to write a grant of water grand you don't have enough money you're gonna be part sorry so in order to sign up for one of those classes I understand you call

Harassment in Online Gaming

"Over two billion people play games globally in the US sixty four percent of online population play video games in games a much more than just games live. MULTIPLAYER Games are social platforms forms where people interact chat and sometimes get harassed. According to a poll made for the Untidy Formation League in two thousand eighteen Americans reported only gaming as the fifth place where the experienced harassment online just after facebook. Luke twitter youtube an instagram. Welcome to good code the weekly podcast on ethics in our digital lives. My name is Sheila Eh. I'm a visiting journalist at Cornell Tax Digital Life Initiative and I'm your host a few weeks ago. I sat down with Daniel Kelly in his office office in New York City. He's the associate director of the Center for Technology and society within the Anti Defamation League he leads the center's work to fight hate bias and harassment in online gaming to be clear he's job is not to look at the contents of video games he studied side conversations. That gamers have with one another wild plane. I began by asking him to explain where exactly these conversations happen. This is a question that I get a lot especially for people who aren't familiar with these kinds of conversations which is sometimes Parents right right when you're talking about communications online games. They can happen usually in two places so the one place would be an text chat so that would be a chat box that usually lives at the bottom of your screen and you can type in different words and you know dialogue. Often people communicate that way. They're playing playing as they're playing. They are if they're on a PC. They're typing if they're if they're on an xbox or playstation they could be there could be shortcuts or there or they could be typing in with their with their control or other things and for those cotton's of communications. You can use the same. A well trod techniques for detecting Abuse that you can use on facebook twitter you have the same model of being able to use machine learning or AI and human review to we able to flag content. There's sort of a baseline to start from in terms of the content. Moderation that happens there the area which is much more of a wild west which exists in games and and in some maybe perhaps live streamed social media But is a big part of games is voice chat so in addition to people typing in some things that they say to people people are actually speaking to each other stranger. They're speaking to each other again as they're playing as they're playing commencing on what's happening. Yeah exactly commenting on what's happening openings. Sometimes being competitive sometimes crossing the line into being hateful and sometimes being you know supportive and encouraging and engaging with with the people as as they're playing the game but when we talk about voice chat the methods to do content moderation in live voice chat are super nascent. And and so. There's a real need. I think to push research and advocacy forward for that because as bad as things can be in the text environments we don't even have the framework to address them in or the tools to address them in voice chat. And so yeah. We'll get back to that. That's something I want to ask. Ask You about Just to understand do most gamers take part in these chatrooms Whether text are vocal is that is that like a wide. I practice the AARP which is an organization that is geared towards Folks who are fifty plus did a survey of Gamers who are art fifty plus and they've found that thirty three percent of Gamers who are fifty plus who play online play with other adults play in in a way that they're communicating with the people they're playing with and so if you can imagine that you know a third of Of older adults are are communicating. When they're playing these games? I don't know there's been a similar measurements of other age groups but I could imagine that the the amount the degree to which if it's part of their game plan part of the way they interact in and see the platform would would be significantly more. I think at the game developers conference in March of last year the CEO of epoch which makes fortnight which is a very popular game talked talked about fortnight and games like it being sort of forms of social media that the folks who are playing these are playing them as games in of themselves but they also are means to build community and to connect with one another. And you know these sort of continuous free to play. Online Games are a form form of social media social platform yet social platforms. And they're places where people are communicating regularly. Our focus right now is really Focused on games as social platforms there. I think there's been a lot of good work in Games as media looking at games in the same way that you you might look at movies in terms of a representation. whose stories are being told? How has that story being told but I at least in the sort of NGOs space this and certainly in the sort of traditional historical civil rights organization space? There hasn't been as much work looking at games as social spaces. uh-huh you were at rights con last year. Which is one of the biggest Tree conferences on human rights and technology and there was no workshop on gaming and that you were surprised prices. Do you think that's changing that people are realizing that Games are social platforms. Is that slowly taking into consideration thing. I I think you know. I think it is starting to become more of a consideration. There's just a lot of educating on both on both sides from the gaming industry and from civil society about how how do we find a way to work together But I think yeah. I think it's urgent. A game industry is larger than film and music combined In terms of the amount out of money that it makes so this is a an urgent space for folks to be looking at there are people who are specifically in the game space. That are focused on us. But it hasn't yet. I think permeated the larger discourse in the same with the social media has for large NGOs. I share. Let's get into the report you rotor a report in July two thousand nineteen. That was cold free to play hate harassment and positive social experiences in line gaming. And you we'll get into the details of it. I you start your report by saying something quite positive which was surprising. The first result that you shares at eighty eighty eight percents of adults who play online those multi-player Games In the US report positive social experiences while playing online and there is even a non trivial amount of US adults who report positive experiences in online should gain so probably some of the most violent when so this is sort of counter intuitive even silver lining to start a report on harassment Shuzo. Why why why was it important to have that at the beginning? We're still in kind of a moral panic place with games James In the way that perhaps we were with comic books in the fifties where something terrible happens in the world that everyone wants to blame it on video games and so my experience talking to folks about these issues has been that when you start from this place of video games are bad. People who are are working in the space with Love Games who games are part of their identity part of how they interact socially it just shuts them down and I. I don't think it's a path towards change. If if you just say that x form of media all books are terrible right. Miguel necessarily say that and so it was important for me. The report port is focused on games as social spaces so both the positive side of things and and I think it was unclear as when we ask these questions rate we we wanted to get to some level of understanding of our game online game spaces are are they as bad as you know people the worst of the worst say hey they are right.

Nike, ServiceNow and SAP CEOs play a game of musical chairs

"Soon because Tuesday morning under armor announced Kevin Plank is stepping down as CEO in January and then later in the day on Tuesday sort of late after a new Nike announced that CEO Mark Parker also stepping down in January he's going to be replaced by John Donahoe who is a Ward member at Nike he is also the CEO of Software Company called service now so he'll be he's been CEO there for nearly three years he's going to be leaving and and Bill McDermott who a couple of weeks ago stepped down or was forced out depending on which version of events you decide to believe he left sap after being CEO for nearly a decade he's now going to be the CEO service now so the musical chairs continuous. Let's let's start with Nike and shares down a little bit on the news and probably not a surprise when you consider Parker's been running this company since two thousand six and if you're a shareholder her under his tenure you have done very very well Oh yeah you're you're quite happy so parker was the second CEO at at Nike following tonight and he took over in two thousand six but there's probably been some I know there have been rumors at least that CEO succession at Nike is Being Thought About for instance three years ago after China chief Michael Sperling was promoted to President Product Marketing and that was his fifth promotion in ninety here so he's moving up the ranks pretty quickly people were wondering Oh is he being groomed as as the next successor but there was also C. C. O. exp Bronx and Brand President Trevor Edwards and the latter man gentleman especially with seen as as the primary contender but then a couple of years ago Edwards was forced out in March of two thousand eighteen amid amid allegations of inappropriate behavior and will leave it at that so Parker's a comment yes Yesterday during an interview that hey this has been months in the planning you don't do this just a couple of weeks is probably true but I'm I'm kind of wondering what the timing has to do with I mean under armor announces a plank stepping down and he says Oh maybe we want to get on that news to or is it more related to the drug doping thing that's I've been coming out and whether Parker knew about it or not and the speculation there or is it just hey today just happen to be the same day that all this other stuff was coming up yeah and and the drug doping thing that you mentioned that's a relief to Alberta Salazar coach ty did Nike over the last few weeks some stories have come out about that and then and then and the extent to which Parker knew about that so some some questions around that I find the timing fascinating because I just thought there's no way or you're going to have a very our time convincing me that this is a coincidence I mean all things being equal because Nike has been the clear leader in the category for so long and even plank has been very clear in his time at under armor you know running the company he was gunning for Nike the whole time right in most situations I would believe that under armor maybe got wind of this and they moved up their announcement and actually think in this situation I think it's the reverse I think that Nike may have just decided you know what we're gonNA announce this later this week or maybe we're we're going to tie to our earnings report you know what let's just do this right now so maybe when plank says okay I'm out in Percocet yes score column win column there we go so let's talk about Donohoe for a second I don't know a ton about him what I do We know is that his experience as an executive is very much in the tech space as I may have service now software company he was an executive at Ebay who is the CEO of EIB. Yeah the chief executive for years and made a bunch of acquisitions onto there so I think if you are a Nike shareholder again it's only down a couple of percentage points I don't think that's necessarily a knock on Donohoe I think that's more just Parker's done such a great job it's it's it's natural to see a trump a little bit but I think if you're if you're looking at the elevations donohoe it's it's with an eye towards his tech experience and Nike increasingly relying on technology to move product right and and and I think again the narrative is that that's why the White was named he has been a director for a couple of years at Nike who was the CEO of Ebay for seven eight years until Twenty fifteen is been the chairman pal he oversaw the spinoff of pay pal from Ebay but that was kind of forced upon him and Ebay by Carl ICAHN activision activision active what what's the word activism activism thank you but he's expected to come into Nike and use his tech savvy to probably continue the digital transformation that has really been driving some good results for Nike They've got their Nike plus membership they're getting being able to get more personalized in their advertising for that and they're seeing some big up responses to that and along with that awesome product tracking and inventory management a lot a lot of good things are happening with Nike from a Tech Perspective and I think Donna who's GonNa continue that maybe a better indicator Keke shareholders is what's happening with shares of service now because that's down about ten percent since it was announced go the donnas leaving let's move on to another great quarter for AAA same store sales such a crucial metric for any restaurant out there up eleven percent rent nearly two percentage points higher than expected the stock is down close to five percent today is that just because of the run that it has had to this point because it's been on an amazing tear it could be that well let me hit some of the points and then connect to that there were other numbers so cops I think that was the big I number and really kind of surprised eleven percent is huge when your restaurant seven and a half percent of that was on transactions that's more people buy more stuff three and a half percent was on average check with about two and a half of that coming from price increases last year but the fact that they're getting more digital orders and digital orders tend to be larger sized checks for that and that's the the present com is higher than what they've had all year q one ten percent Kutu now eleven present Q. Three though this little certainly make next to your harder harder to beat but that aside the digital thing is really going up they sought eighty eight percent increase in sales of digital orders and now there's like eighteen percent of total sales so that's pretty good and the rewards club is is really beginning to play into that and so they also said they're going to Open some more of there drive through and literally that's drive through you don't stop to order you just try to go and pick up pick up the stuff and that's tied into their didn't digital sales as well but why are the shares down five percent maybe it's well the the the the company's shares have had a fantastic runner up twenty percent since the any of June maybe investors saying hey that was a great quarter thank you very much and could take some money off the table maybe it's a bunch of the analyst not raising their their expectations AH bunch of analysts came out with higher price targets but nobody actually moved there from hold to outperform or market perform. to overweight or whatever the languages but you look at the job that Brian Nickel has done as CEO and Yeah quarter after quarter Cipolla has delivered under his leadership and it may be that the stock has entered that territory that we see from time to time when businesses have a great the three year run and it's essentially this was a phenomenal quarter but it wasn't perfect because now because we're greedy we wanna see you beating on everything and Radi race and guidance headed almost did meet on everything but actually I think I know why the shares were down it was announced that they're limited time Carne Asada meat product it is going to run off November so everyone's disappointed angry and where do you think and again let me just catch Thanks I don't think there's any pressure whatsoever on Brian Nichols given the job that he's done but I'm curious where you think the growth for AAA comes over the next three years because there was a point in this business history when they were doing so well with the namesake concept that people were looking to the shop house Asian cuisine concept as that's where future growth is gonNA come from we're not going to get as many locations as we have AAA but we're going to get you know a few hundred those have essentially been closed down so do they begin to resurrect some of those ideas or do you think it's just more digital more locations and finding ways to bump up the average ticket price I don't think they're going to go into other concepts quite yet of given their experience they're probably a little gun shy right there that might come down that might come to pass down the road I think they're going to push more into digital and get more people ordering in so they can just walk in and walk out and pick up their stuff that as well as the drive through what they call chip Elaine get terrible name right actually it's kind of funny but I mean reaction it's it's it's it's no worse than the estimate forces on us getting the name aside I think that's going to be a really good driver for the company and that means they can open a second product line of just fulfilling orders through that go through more digital sales and as well as having more customers come through the doors so I think that's where the growth is going to be trial various things Carne Asada apparently did very well well are they going to bring in some breakfast at some point probably so I think they're going to continue expanding what they're working on focusing on their cordial police thing and then maybe a few years down the road might start thinking about other concept's

Hydrogen Power, Modular Nuclear and the Other Technology Xcel Energy Has Its Eyes On

"You've heard about xl energy goal to be one hundred percent carbon free by twenty fifty but what are the mechanics to get there and is the technology there to deliver reliable power at lower cost. Let's ask xl CEO Ben Folk a how he plans to meet that climate-friendly goal hi Ben Hey Paul. How are you good. Thanks for talking with us today. What is the specific plan to get it to the carbon goals that Xcel has set by twenty thirty and carbon-free by twenty fifty right well. I'll be the first to tell you that will have to have technologies develop up to get us that last twenty percent of carbon out of our system technologies. That may not yet be there today that they're there but they're not commercially viable. Oh no because affordability reliability critical to this but the good news is technologies today will get us to that eighty percent carbon reduction by twenty thirty and they'll do so in a way that affordable and reliable when we talk about carbon neutral versus carbon free. How does that translate to what xl is trying to do? So what we're trying to do is a very pure carbon free meaning that none of our plants are emitting carbon and we're not having to buy REX renewable energy credits to get there so the reason why we're focused on that because we want this to be sustainable and replicable and awesomely we're all part of this thing called a big grid and and we all interconnect with a very few people truly disconnected so we're trying to show away that other utilities and other industries can also be carbon free. I WanNa want to get to some of the mechanics of that in a minute but let's talk about cost. I what where are we with. The latest costs for things like wind solar. Call all the types of energy energy that you have to look at where those costs trending right now you know ten years ago I would be talking about buying wind at sixty five dollars and today I'm talking about buying win for twenty dollars or less and that then competes head on with the price of fossil fuels so often sometimes I say that you know I might not totally retire the the gas generation plant but if I can use a lot less of it and make the fuel win versus natural gas and that that wind fuel is cheaper than the natural gas fuel than the environment benefits and our customers benefit. I WanNa talk a little little bit about wind full disclosure. I'm one hundred percent wind source customer with Xl Energy. How many minnesotans great how many Minnesotans have signed up up for wind source or some of the solar options that you have. Oh I think we're probably in the tens of thousands. It might even be close to one hundred thousand wow that program Paul is where we actually go out and retire noble energy credits which allows you to get one hundred percent of your energy from win but again. I can do that for you. I do it for myself. We can do these things for other customers but ultimately it gets back to if we want to be completely carbon-free. We have to make sure that big grid that we all connect back to US carbon free and is there demand strong demand. You hear that you see that from your customers. I think I went on your website and saw that one of your programs has a waiting waiting list. Is that true yeah I renewable connect product. which is kind of the next generation is very popular because it'll it basically locks customers in to a renewable resource for a period of time one year five years ten years and then depending on what the actual prices of energy do over that timeframe you might even save money and really interested in because we actually go out and build that wind farm that Solar Forum specifically for that group of customers so the program sell out pretty quickly. Let's talk about nuclear how long will nuclear power remain part of excels portfolio well. I I will tell you Paul. It's absolutely critical that that one of our plants are Monticello plant. which is scheduled to retire in Twenty thirty we've asked under our resource plan to extend that another ten years we won't be able to meet that eighty eight percent goal and move away from coal without the extension that nuclear plant now where nuclear ultimately goes. I think is depended it upon what the next generation of nuclear looks like and what the price looks like and what that compares to other alternatives. I happen to think it needs to be in our nation's energy portfolio oil. It is carbon free. It's twenty four seven dispatch -able and very important to the grid health so I'm a fan of nuclear but I'm also a fan kind of other technologies if they can do the same job well. Let's talk about some of those other technologies how much solar and how much wind is xl planning to add in the next several decades well well. We're already been a win leader for the last thirteen years. I believe we'll continue that wind leadership as we start to shut down our coal plants or replace a lot of that was solar energy so in the middle the twenty twenties look for us to add about three thousand megawatts of solar and trying to put that in context for for your listeners but it would probably it'll ultimately represent probably about twenty twenty five percent of our energy mix we as we move towards twenty thirty. I had had the opportunity to visit a solar garden earlier this year out around Norwood Young America and one megawatt project. I think it took up about ten acres of land and I'm curious how are farmers and other landowners cities reacting to the growth of solar and wind in Minnesota. Is there any pushback on the land use there. There's always some on pushback on any technology I think but for the most part wind is been really embraced by the farming community because you can still farm the land and I've had farmers come. I'm up to me and all the states we serve and and and tell me that if it hadn't been for the wind farm we put on their their farm in the royalty stream that goes with that then they might not be in business so it's generally been popular. There are issues with it. Solar is a little bit different. I mean you can't really farm the land and you're right. It's very land intensive about six to eight acres. Here's for per megawatt. I think that's an issue that's more pronounced when you're closer into the Metro region because cities don't necessarily want to see their land be devoted to a solar farm. They'd rather develop it as you get further out into the more remote areas. I think we can we can bridge that concern

Medical Tourism Broker Doctours Expands to 35 Countries

"The Bra I'm wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on this Thursday July twenty fifth. Would you go to Mexico Thailand or Dubai for surgery. Well One L.. A. Startup is betting big that you will. The company is docked tours spell like Nick Diaz E. T. O. U.. R. S. Tours it connects patients with cheaper medical procedures overseas founder Kaylynn o'shaughnessy compares docked tours to the online site Angie's list except that instead of helping find a plumber she says. Doc Tours is helping you find a physician earlier this month. The company announced it can help patients find medical treatments in thirty five different countries o'shaughnessy began her career in the tourism business starting and selling an online travel company when he called trip scope in twenty seventeen she launched docked tours with funding from a handful of individual investors today the company claims customers using doctors online platform can locate in book three hundred thirty five different medical olen dental procedures along with the associated flights and lodging company takes a commission on your trip. It also pays a five percent commission to travel agents not only on the travel but also on the medical procedure itself according to Shaughnessy. See the entire medical tourism business is going great guns spurred by patients anxious to save money on notoriously high American medical expenses most patients seek elective procedures such as cosmetic surgery in vitro fertilization stem stem cell therapy still medical tourism isn't the healthcare panacea. It's been hyped to be prior to the passage of the affordable care act the industry looked to be on the upswing. It was heavily promoted to insurers and two large employers the idea companies he's could send their sick employees abroad preferably to places where one might WanNa vacation anyway saving the insurer or employer oodles of money but surveys show that most people don't want to travel more than thirty miles for surgery and so. Employees offered the benefit said a resounding no now few if any large insurers offer it still numbers are climbing if not as quickly as promised docked tours and other smaller medical tourism facilitators facilitators are targeting consumers paying for procedures themselves private payers choosing say a nose job have more incentive to find bargains abroad than do insured patients doc tours promises savings of up to eighty eight percent savings however vary by procedure and country the online site patients beyond borders estimates savings across the industry ranging from a low of twenty percent in Brazil to a high of eighty percent in Malaysia. Good statistics are hard to come by in part because of the nebulous definition of a medical tourist it doesn't include ex-pats or adventures who happen to get sick while traveling abroad for example upwards of one and a half million Americans became medical medical tourists last year though according to dock tours patients beyond borders estimates the number will rise to almost two million this year because the industry is still relatively new hype abounds for instance doctors claims medical and dental tourism is a four four hundred thirty nine billion dollar global market but that figure has been debunked according to the Medical Tourism Association the real number they report is closer to seventy billion dollars but this raises a question about the enterprise in a larger. Your sense Americans put their trust health system. That's highly regulated in the U._S.. How do you know how safe a procedure is overseas? And what legal recourse would you have. If something goes wrong doctor says most of their providers have international accreditation but they also don't take on any liability medical tourism may indeed be the right thing for you and as promoters say wouldn't you like to recover on a beach with a Pina Colada and but given the loosey-goosey nature of the price price market and safety claims will this much is for certain. You'd better do your homework before you get on that plane.

What Is the Mandela Effect?

What Is the Mandela Effect?

"Countless humans have watched the Star Wars movies. And most of them will tell you that the bumbling droid named see three PO is gold all over. But did you know that C three PO actually has won silver leg? And what's that immortal line? Darth Vader utters in the movie The Empire Strikes back. It's not Luke. I am your father. He actually says no, I am your father, a both of these are pop culture examples of what's called the Mandela effect which are false memories. Shared among a large population of people a collective miss remembering of sorts, the phrase was coined around two thousand nine by self-described paranormal consultant view on a broom who used it to explain the phenomenon where many people around the world believed that the South African leader Nelson. Mandela died in prison in the nineteen eighties. But he was released in nineteen ninety later served as president of the country and died in two thousand thirteen at the age of ninety five brooms theory is that at all. All times there are multiple realities of each universe. Sometimes called the multi-diverse and that within each universe. There are variations or iterations of objects people end events. So according to this theory memories of these. Incorrect shared moments are not really false. They're just instances where parallel universes crossed paths for an instant the multi theory is also applied to various concepts in physics and Spiderman. A science has other explanations for how the men della effect happens much of it boils down to the fact that human memory is notoriously unreliable in this hour age of digital technologies. We often equate our brains with computer, hard drives. As though our experiences are typed up in filed away in our own organic storage. However, our prefrontal cortex sees where many memories are stored don't work with the same precision as a hard drive. We spoke by Email with Caitlyn a moat a UCLA PHD candidate in neuro science. She says that based on what we know about the brain. We can make inferences about what contributes to the Mandela affect quote memories are organized in the brain. So that similar memories are stored in nearby neurons when a memory is recalled those cells are able to change their connections, which allows for the addition of new information, but because neurons that fire together wire together sometimes false memories can emerge from aronie is connections. Well, we might think of recalling memories as solidifying them in our brains science seems to suggest otherwise recalling a memory often triggers. Other memories in the process, often intertwining various scenarios and people in new ways a sort of reconsolidating of the information in our brains. Human beings are also vulnerable to the concept of confabulation, which is an error or misinterpretation regarding a memory without a conscious attempt to mislead ourselves or others confabulation occurs. When the brain is attempting to fill in the blanks for incomplete memories. A speaker may mix and match similar experiences and information in order to complete a story in their mind complete with details and emotional responses. Certain that the tail is true. This kind of behavior happens more frequently and people coping with neurological issues such as brain damage or Alzheimer's, but healthy individuals confabulation too. Okay. So that might explain how one person misremembered something, but why would lots of people misremembered. Remember the same fax a moat points to twenty sixteen psychology. Studies showing that eighty eight percent of people in an online survey incorrectly. Picked Alexander Hamilton as a US president from a list of possible candidates, Hilton's recognition rate was much higher than that of some actual presidents like Franklin Pierce and Chester. Arthur Hamilton was actually the first secretary of treasury. But since he's associated with many early US presidents and has a hit Broadway show with his name in the title one or many could be forgiven for mistaking him for a former commander in chief. A moat also notes the power of suggestion. She said suggest ability is the tendency to believe what others suggest to be true. This is why lawyers are prohibited from asking witnesses leading questions at suggest a specific answer. These days. There's also the viral power of the internet and its ability to magnify human error suggest ability and gullibility just for example, if one person should Pacific sleep claimed the actor Sinbad start in a nineties movie about a genie called ZIM and could pro- off her plot. Details that strike a chord with other readers? This could generate a false narrative that many people might believe to be true or even claimed her member themselves in actuality, the actor in the nineties movie about genie was Shaquille O'Neal, and the film was called Kazan. Experiments continually demonstrate just how flawed human memory can be in one test about thirty percent of subjects confirmed. They had viewed video footage of United flight ninety three which crashed as part of these timber eleventh terrorist attacks, no such footage exists. Even twenty percent of people with highly superior autobiographical memory that is incredibly accurate memories reported viewing the nonexistent video and outside of the lab examples of the Mandela affect are pretty common are the popular cartoon bears called the baron Steen bears or the baron stain bears. It's the latter. Something that shocks many people who remember reading these books as children and do you remember a famous portrait of England's king? Henry the eighth grasping Turkey leg. The so do a lot of other people, but it never

"Is not real. It is not a real thing. People say, well, it's not that shocking. You got one hundred million people watching. So it's fifteen thousand extra maroon five downloads, right? Still somebody decided I'm gonna go back fifteen years by these songs that I never had before Busta worked for somebody. Right. And I don't want it to be like, I'm defending that band. Well, no. But when when the people come back and say, well, of course, they still got to free exposure. And all that, you know, what you're also saying, well, those people who do enjoy the music and did actually download that stuff. Well, they're just stupid. They don't understand the issues. Why we're so mad at maroon five right? If you just listed Savar music, then you'll get woke right? Got that. This is the most surprising stat that I've seen today. And that is the percentage of Americans that are happy at their job. Okay. Did you see it? I don't think I did eighty eight percent. No, really. That high. Yes. That includes more than one out of six people who said they're elated at their job elated. Yes. Well, you know, that's because Donald Trump made America great again. He's got the job. They want right now. If you put that along with the question has Donald Trump helped make you happy at work. Eighty eight percent hate their jobs. Maybe eighty eighty eight percent of Americans hate their home. Life is happy to be a work. Heaviest workers generally have good relationships with their boss. Feel strongly connected to the company's mission work diverse places take longer launches and go to social events like happy hours with their coworkers. But wow. That had me floored and again man with different numbers. You can crunch them to make them. Look good. But still eight percent happy with their job, man..

"MR Gomez seven percent of Americans say illegal immigration is not a problem. The first act by the democrat house majority is to defy the will of ninety three percent of the population. Only seven percent of Americans say illegal immigration is not a problem. Eighty eight percent of Democrats.

Why Trump going alone because people like never Trumpers like Romney and the rest of this crowd, which is sitting here. Living twenty five years in the past or twenty years in the past they have been rendered obsolete. They had been rendered irrelevant. They never were relevant. If you wanna get down to brass tacks in their own minds. They were. But it remains a one man show Donald Trump against the democrat party and the media Donald Trump against fake news.

We just created the concept of a wall to help this idiot. Trump stay on message. You believe that there never was going to be a wall. We knew before Trump knew how important his message on legal immigration was. And so we had to create the concept of the wall for him. So that he could say something and remember something very simple during all of those rallies to keep him going off the prompter and going wrong and start mumbling about things. He didn't understand just we kept pounding. Mr President just the wall, you're going to build the wall. That's what we kept telling him. And so this guy going rogue now, basically is trying to say Trump never even believed in it. The wall was never wheel we who were smarter than Trump notice. They're not with Trump anymore. We who are smarter than Trump. We created the whole notion of a wall just to simplify things for him. Right. So the one guy holding firm the one guy standing for the one guy who has not buckling in any way, shape matter form on this. Had to be told to us the wall had to be headed to be had to have this whole concept of a wall created because of his simpleton mind. This is a former Trump supporter. This is just one example of the kind of stuff that Trump gets thrown at him each and every day, and I guarantee you the vast majority of us would have gotten frustrated with his long ago, and thrown up our hands and said to heck with this. And would have done anything. We could to make it. Stop. Let's get started on the phones. David denver. You're up first today. Great to have you. Welcome back, sir. Hi. Avenue year rush.

Is there was an article in CNN business college Cable News Network airs Trump's comments in real time. Should they? And I'm sure cookie has that in your stack, but I had to put that in there because they're now asking the question should they cover real time? Because basically he's making him look bad. Sorry.

"Ceremony at ten o'clock here on NewsRadio KF K. MR folks only seven percent of Americans say illegal immigration is not a problem. The first act by the democrat house majority is to defy the will of ninety three percent of the population. Only seven percent of Americans say illegal immigration is not a problem. Eighty eight percent of Democrats. And to insinuate that anybody who disagrees with them is immoral if the rest of the Republican leadership would fight back. We can win this debate. Why does Trump have to go with TY trust to go it alone because people like never Trumpers Romney and the rest of this crowd, which is sitting here. Living twenty five years in the past twenty years in the past they have been rendered obsolete. They have been rendered irrelevant. They never were relevant. If you wanna get down to brass tacks in their own minds. They were. But it remains a one man show Donald Trump against the democrat party and the media Donald Trump against fake news. Donald Trump against lying news, and we are very fortunate. The guy does not cave. We're very fortunate. He's willing to put up with this ninety three percent of the American people say illegal immigration is a problem. Eighty eight percent of Democrats. And the first act by the Democrats now who run the house of representatives was to pass legislation on a tout legislation mocking this lamenting making fun of this and ridiculing this. Now, we'll see how this plays out. How many of you thought Trump and a k by now? Be honest. How many thought Trump was gonna cave by now? Well, the media said he was going to be caving. If it weren't for me, the media said, he wouldn't even done it. If it weren't for me. There's a story out there today by a former Trump supporter who's gone off the reservation who says, you know, what he said there never was going to be a wall. We just created the concept of a wall to help this idiot. Trump stay on message. You believe that there never was going to be a wall. We knew before Trump knew how important his message on illegal immigration was. And so we had to create the concept of the wall for him. So that he could say something and remember something very simple during all of those rallies to keep him going off the prompter and going rogue and start mumbling about things. He didn't understand just we kept pounding. Mr President just the wall. You got to build the wall. That's what we kept telling him. And so this guy going rogue now, basically is trying to say Trump never even believed in it. The wall was never wheel we who were smarter than Trump notice. They're not with Trump anymore. We who are smarter than Trump. We created the whole notion of a wall Justice simplify things for him. Right. So the one guy holding firm the one guy standing for the one guy who is not buckling in any way, shape manner form on this. Had to be told to us the wall had to be head to head to have this whole concept of a wall created because of his simpleton mind. This is a former Trump supporter. This is just one example of the kind of stuff that Trump gets thrown at him each and every day, and I'll guarantee you the vast majority of us would have gotten frustrated with his long ago, and thrown up our hands and said to heck with this. And would have done anything. We could to make it. Stop. Let's started on the phones. David denver. You're up first today. Great to have you. Welcome back, sir. Hi. Happy new year rush. I'm one of those three hundred eighty some one thousand employees federal employees that are sitting on the sidelines right now. From suffering financially. Yes, it could not come at a worse time for my own personal financial wine for now. I have to push by creditors. And and basically run the risk of maybe having my house, you know, foreclose on what was talking to happen. Because the president said we're good for the money. Having said all of that at the same time. I to not here. Here and was in good conscience continue to allow this open border policy would currently have with this with our with our country and Alana's that it costs in our border patrol agents. The the trafficking trafficking of people that from both sides. We have children that are being kidnapped here. United States carried across the border, Mexico because of this open border, and so to me I will suffer this small financial loss with the short amount of time to help ensure that we get something done in this process because now. And the second real quick comment is there was a article in CNN business college Cable, News Network airs Trump's comments in real time, but should that. And I'm sure cookie has that in your stack, but I had to put that in there because they're now asking the question should be real time. Because basically, he's making them look bad. Sorry. I'm not I didn't get. I didn't get the CNN part of what you said. Didn't quite underst- understand that do you know cookie? No. But normally cookie has the the there's an article out there on business and says cable news networks aired Trump's comments in real time. But should they is the headline? And basically, the article sits there and says, you know, should we, you know, Trump puts out all this misinformation. Should we be organised and real? Why should they not? Well, that's the thing is that we have to they want to filter it through their lands. So that we get the information that they think worthy, and is not you know, with with with Trump's lies is they put it. Falsehoods as they say. Interesting basically, they're saying should they fact checking before the before they report what he says since he lies so much. Yeah. Well, I was trying to get on YouTube yesterday when he was going to Camp David to find out exactly what he said to the report is because it's really fascinating interchange. You makes them look really bad. One reporter on last week after question, Mr. Tronchetti said it was going to be a concrete wall. Why you know?

"Believer. Now. That's spelled for listeners out there. It's spelled B E L E V A. And it's backed by a stellar new. Double blind clinical study that blew the scientists away here. This is very exciting. So let me ask you straight up. Dr neil. Why is this such a big deal? Right. Right. Well, I've been working with people with back pain for over two decades. And when it comes to supplements for back pain, you just don't see results like this. So in the study, we just completed just two capsules of believe a day and nearly all nearly all the subjects taking believe experienced significant. Beneficial effects. They were more comfortable, they were more flexible, very, very, clinically significant. Okay. So if you were Dr Neil for listeners out there, I want to dig just a bit deeper here in the clinical study that you guys did because the results are incredible. And I can't overstate by the way how important this is. Because when it comes to dietary supplements for back pain until now there's been practically nothing clinically validated out there. Right. I mean, they're joint formulas, but not necessarily back formulas. Dr Neil, why is this herbal pain relief formula believer so revolutionary, and why is it? An absolute must for say anyone that may be listening to the show today with lower back discomfort. Yeah. This was a wonderful study double blind, placebo controlled. And this is what my patients want. This is what most of the listeners are probably looking for something. They're kind to the body. Herbal. Pain relief. It's good for you. Good for your entire body. And we stress tested on the lower back. Why? Because that's one of them. Lose stubborn polices. Define relief for these aches and pains, right? So we tested a bunch of different parameters. I we use a standardized pain questionnaire. I use it in my office every day. Steve it's called the visual analog scale, we use that to determine the participants pain level. You'll get this about seventy percent of the folks on believe the men and the women that we were testing they experienced reductions in their low back pain while they were walking. So they were active. They were doing stuff, and they still have this wonderful relief. They were feeling much better. And they were very happy with their progress. In contrast, only seven percent of the folks on placebo had any benefit by day. Thirty Steve eighty eight percent of the believer. You. Users the men and women in our testing experienced clinically significant reductions in the severity of their chronic low back pain were doing great placebo users. No affect so what does this mean to the listeners out?.
