"Away the trade war and BROADCOM's and go back to making big deals that China will only sign off. From video will they're trying to by ARM Holdings right now? Okay. And are always isn't great great acquisition but we know the Chinese regulators drag their feet or invidious last spaghetti. Ignore the weren't weren't any legitimate anti trust concerns. They could do the same with arm. Holdings Biden Presidency that deal a lot easier and that would be raising numbers nvidia. AMD make some phenomenal chips and there's a minced man from China. But with trump in the White House the Chinese governments were like a ton of resources into competing with amd abiding administration though Oh you watch back trade war I think they'll have different priorities. Definitely. My Belt Tech is a fabulous five jeep play. A lot of business when President Trump Vanua away from by American made components maybe more. We'll get some of that business back under by Mavis done exceptionally well by courting and then succeeding to get the business of waterways competitors since Aban. Beyond. Beyond listen this I mean it's really is what does the trust own? Great American companies companies like. Like starbucks like Nike White. Boeing. Like dizzy. For starbucks China's the biggest growth engine put up tons of stores over there, and they still really haven't scratched the surface of the smaller tier two cities the ones with like three to four million people they could use a punch starbucks. Nike's got consistent businessman China to can be enhanced under Biden although the trade were never really stopped them from dominating sticker over there Boeing. Sometimes the Chinese garden would rather build its own planes than buy them from an American company. If only despite trump, I can vision making a huge buy from Boeing, right around the time of a bite inauguration, it's kind of like an hour branch Boeing stock war if you get Max approval in Chinese orders. Of the pandemic, The Walt Disney Company also doesn't hundred business in China. They play ball with the communist party sensors because they don't like being portrayed negatively in movies for Disney that's a small price to pay to access a gigantic market. They want Chinese people go to the parks and watch movies but playing ball with the Chinese government is found upon by trump White House under biden. I, don't admit the radar screen next up, we own ma that's hard for the Child Trust, and this is another China winner. Mastercard already has approval begin preparations for a clearing operation. The pure see that was part of trump's face one trade. You however seems Kinda Stillborn. Not. Making much progress I think that's related to the temper of the Times Biden gets in there lowers the temperature that China's stop slow the plane mastercard and put on lists whatever listeners who list let's. I. Can go on and on both JP. Morgan goldman-sachs more. Chinese. Business Biden, makes that very likely Microsoft about the way I deal for top would have been a squeeze just is just fantastic for them but the trump administration shot down in favor of Oracle boasting because they think China has too much influence with Microsoft. Then none over Oracle could have been positive for Mr Softie you some oddities. Jones Costco. For example we know Costco's enough money on its balance sheet to pay US special dividend it Biden wins in taxes may go up so that could spur costco to especially living in sooner. Not, there, hey waste magic might be on once again to sell our old newspapers to China recycling. Honeywell substantial business in China Dupont's business in China Abbott labs substantial China United. Parcel. It says it offers more delivery options in China than any other company go check the website all than do better. If you ratchet down tensions now getting let me be very clear. I am not saying Biden would be better for the stock market as a whole. The trump way has been very aggressive about wanting to keep the market. Happy. I've never seen a lot of the tweets are just about how the Dow's doing you know. I. Mean He loves it. He wants up. He wanted to Nielsen's up to when he was doing apprentice them. But when you drill down to specific industries. I don't have much appetite for the stocks with benefit from second trump term stocks like the UN investable coal industry. The oil is she gives history uninvested. Well, regardless of what happens in washing, I don't care the Arctic. Refugees is open for drilling. These low prices neither should the oil companies? Didn't the poem bears break. The bottom line. But whatever I mean they got like all sorts of deer stuff up there I wanna go there if I get a chance when it comes to earn. When it comes to earnings. To prospects to growth I was absolutely stunned the two thirds of the socks and my travel trust would likely make more money under Biden under trump and given the Biden's wed the polls. Maybe that's what's being reflected in the average back during the primaries I, said that trump versus bide race would be ideal for the stock market. Looks. Like I was more right. Then I knew. I think she calls I. Think we should talk with Ravi in Pennsylvania Robbie. Game Hoya. I am good man how are you? I'm all right. Hey, Jim wondering what your partner on booking now that the.

Breaking Through at CVRx

"Welcome to the MED tech talk podcast your host Pardo and I'm very excited to welcome the deem yard CEO CRX to this edition of the podcast Nadeem has had the lustrous career starting at GE and then his GM of MEDTRONIC's navigation business but his biggest and most important challenges come CPR which we're going to focus on today for full disclosure. I've had the pleasure to get to know Nadeem over the past eight plus years, and for the last four I've been on the beam sport and killed as an investor in Cebu. Rx. and. I'm really looking forward to the conversation today. Deem it is great to have you on cats. Thank you jeff it's great to be with you today. Terrific will good what we have a lot of things to cover today and really want to focus on CBS which is turning into I think an incredibly exciting story. But of course, their their roots to the CRX story and maybe you can take us through that a little bit the genesis of. Both. The CRT is therapy in heart failure but also barracks. Absolutely Jeff. So I talk about heart failure it is. A devastating disease. Very expensive from a cost perspective, but also from the human side of things, patients unfortunately suffering from heart failure, end up having those episodes of congestive offense way as they feel that drowning, it's like a continuous waterboarding expedient just how painful that is right and unfortunately one of those episodes could lead to their death and. In the United States hot figure is the second most expensive disease. If we consider cancer as one disease, if you stopped separating cancer between breast cancer by cancer sets that hot figure becomes unfortunately the most expensive disease in the US. What is hot forget? It's. When the heart over the years of. Insult or injury to starts becoming larger the walls of the heart becoming thinner. And the heart's ability to pump blood to the system is compromised. And that's. Compromise happening in multiple forms. One of them is called synchrony when the left side and the right side of the heart start becoming disconnected from each other. So think about it like a car. Engine where have the cylinders not kill into properly? Than the COD would not produce horsepower that you need. You need to tune the car that is what's Artie Cardiac. Surgery synchronization therapy. Was designed to do they. You know put two pacemakers right now it's only one pacemaker with two wires. That's why they call it by basic they based both ventricles and they tried to synchronize the left and right side. That works wild if the heart is distinct honest. However in heart failure. Only thirty to forty percent of the patients have synchrony. That s of the patient's heart become lodged the world's thinner. But the left and right sides are still beating in harmony but not strong enough. And for those patients, unfortunately crt devices did not produce the results that WHO, hoping for. Ten fifteen years ago when we're testing them. And that is where our approach berry. Flex. Therapy comes into play. The genesis of this therapy goes back multiple decades not gonna go to the whole history with Dr Professor Bronwyn than his wife and everything, but nevertheless indie. Let me take one paper from Dr. Abraham. From nineteen ninety nine and that is about CRT devices. In this paper that was published in the New England. Journal of Medicine Dr Abraham demonstrated the sustained. That's or the sustained benefit of CRT. Comes from the fact that when you should denies the left side on the right side of the heart, the pulse pressure of the volume of the blood leaving the heart. Activates the Beverly Flex. In the cutouts dodgy. Trusting. Right. So those patients with this synchrony, you recent combined the left and the right. Now you're sending a pulse pressure strong enough you activate the battery flex let a convoluted way to do it. How did you see that actually signed to do it well? Alex secrets wandered in the body we went with a Wyatt directly into those better receptors in the. Wall and activate though cells. Jackie with. Why go all around right now, our device would work in all forms of heart failure, but we have to go in developed the evidence one by one and demonstrates and in our first. Quote Unquote. beachhead strategy. We selected a large segment of patients who are not able to be treated by CIT devices. Why not the eligible for Siasi devices? Those patients are those who do not have distinctly. Right. So they left the right side of the heart beating in synchrony, but heart is not strong enough. The walls fin the muscles of the heart are tired at the. Pump, the blood.

Thank you. Come Rob, I'd like to start with you understand? You served in the United States Air Force and the Air Force Reserve. How did you go from being in a bunker with a missile to being in the public affairs officer? It's not necessarily a logical turning. First of all, Let me just start by thinking you, Tom for giving us this opportunity and for your work, Tio Recognize and support our better ingenuity. Um, I have a great fortune of serving in the U. S Air Force in the early and mid nineties. A cz you mentioned Served in a couple of rules. I heard there's a missile launch officer and I see the soul. Officer in South Dakota and Ellsworth Air Force Base, and then I have an opportunity and then moved into the public affairs world working in Washington, D C at Bolling Air Force Base and the public affairs officer there, and that's really then becomes the transition into my private sector work in constant communications, public relations in community affairs, so The great career and really enjoyed my time in the air Force took on active duty and reserve on DH departed the reserves in the kind of early right around 2000.

When I was getting my transition from the Marine Corps, I was invited to a luncheon event, a Medtronic that the Veterans employee Resource Group Was hosting and they introduced me to numerous hiring managers and talent acquisition folks that helped expose me to the opportunities. Very good. And Rob, Can you tell us Imagine you spend some quality time with the net. In the process of becoming a yellow ribbon company. We did, and we're, you know, really appreciative of the designation really honored by it, And I think it's something that we've known about for some time. And we're very pleased that over the course of the last year 18 months in particular, really been working hard with our senior managers at Medtronic or senior leadership. As well, Teo to really elevate our attention on the veteran on the needs of the veteran, both Those were trying to recruit in the company as well as those veterans who are employees we have about about 3000 veterans, self identified. Veterans that are you know company in the United States has got a sizeable population of veterans. Some of them as you can imagine, continue to serve in the garden reserves and so forth and so time over the last two years, two months or so, it's just really Furthering the depth of our programs of policies and outreach and our interaction with veterans, and that's prepared us for what we thought was a viable submission to the yellow ribbon. Resignation and just got tremendous support from the state to get us to get to this point, And like I said, we're deeply honored, and now we're continuing to try to do the good work of learning that designations program in what we do.

Edwards' Katie Szyman on Medtech's Accelerating Changes

"Katie has had a fascinating career both at Edwards, but also at medtronic where she was president their diabetes business. In addition to that she served on the board of numerous start up companies that are each having a huge impact on their various specialties companies like Inari. Inspire tourney a welcome Katie. Thank gap. It's great to be here. Thanks so much for joining us in. We have a lot of things to cover today, so I'm really excited to have the opportunity at beyond the podcast of let's start with Edwards in critical care and i. a lot of people don't realize that critical care is a seven hundred million dollar business within Edwards. Could you give our listeners an overview of critical care and really what the core of the Edwards offering is? The core initial started Edward. critical care started with the Swan Ganz Catheter, that was actually invented out of Cedar. Sinai and many people know the kind of the story. That invention was just that It was sitting on the beach and said Hey. How do I get a good reading of a patient's pulmonary artery pressure, and it's really hard to do unless you're inside the heart, and it's really hard to get to that pulmonary artery position and figured out that if you took a you know, think about how sailboats work. If you blow up a balloon and let it flow really through the body like a sailboat. Sailboat it would land in the pulmonary position, and that was invented almost fifty years ago. by a Jeremy Swan Ganz out of Cedar. Sinai. That was the beginning of our business. And since then we've really expanded and focused on advanced Chemo, dynamic monitoring, really in patients in the ICU or in high risk surgeries whether cardiac surgeries or high risk, non cardiac surgeries that may be four patients that are very thick and that have surgery greater than three hours, so are being screw from the beginning with the Swan. Ganz Catheters, and now we do you know all kinds of pressure? Monitoring Technologies really focused on making sure patients. Are Stable. That's great actually didn't know the the history of the slum Ganz Catheters so that's fascinating. One one of the things that must be having a huge impact on your business is the current crisis were facing in vid. How has that Changed Your Business in in? How are you seeing? Critical care evolve through this crisis. It's an interesting I. Think for us. We always assumed so much of our business was in the ICU and out with the with Kobe hitting. We've seen it hit in various degrees, so for example in the UK They realized that they had a significant shortage of ICU. And so they came through and ordered like one point, two million DP or pressure sensors from us to stock up so that they could build out there I see us other countries like Germany or the US had adequate ice, you beds in different parts of the country of the US. We've seen some regional spike, but overall I think we've found in the US. We had enough ice. You better than in Germany. They have enough, but then kind of across the rest of Europe. They found significant shortages so. So, we've seen some spikes in demand, related to building I, you capacity, and then we've seen just various spikes in demand like regionally for example in New York and New Jersey. Of course we've seen some higher demand there, but on the flip side, probably fifty percent of our revenues come from high risk surgery, and so with the cancellation of surgeries, really across the US and the world we've seen the kind of downward demand or downward revenues for about half the business for the high risk of our procedures. Interesting. I didn't realize it cut both. Ways. I think the the the building of stockpiles are expanding capacity is interesting dilemma that I think a lot of companies are are facing because on the one hand, it's great from the near term business side on the other hand you wonder. What will purchasing look like in the future with these SORTA stockpiles? How do you deal with that are a that? Is that something that? You see is. Concerned going forward. Yeah absolutely like so. It's been interesting journey for lot of our products manufactured of the Dominican Republic and in the Dr. Reduction of human you know of of human capital in terms of the workers, because many of the workers that were over age sixty were no longer able to come to the work that reduced our capacity by about eighty percent, and meanwhile then we had this bike demand. So now. We're sort of getting back to a steady state where you know, people are able to come back to work, but it's been a really interesting short-term. And there's also the concern as you said like. We've had this surge in demand, so we've had to work double. You know three shifts, and through the weekend to meet kind of these spikes in demand building capacity, but we all recognize that that's not going to be sustainable, and it's going to go back to a normal state afterwards so mostly. We're just hiring. And trying to use extra shifts as a way to kind of manage it so that we don't all become over capacity by ourselves right permanently. Yeah, yeah, no, that I mean you think of the. A lot of people think about what's happening on the front lines as they should, but the ripple effect through your business through your supply chain is, it's incredible. Just think how complex our businesses have become. And little changes in the overall environment can impact the you know the whole supply chain. It's it is amazing like for supply chain in particular, because we've also seen the regulatory bodies whether it's in Europe or in the US being flexible to try to approve product quicker just to kind of provide for the emergency situation, so you know for example we had excess capacity of our Asia sensors, and so we were able to quickly get those approved into Europe so that they could actually get to their patients in Europe almost on a temporary basis. Basis so I. You know I think the one summary of what's happening is very unpredictable and I think there's some really good permanent changes in terms of realizing that we can all work together globally better whether it's regulatory bodies whether it's manufacturing whether it's you know distribution channels as you're talking about shipping channels. All of that I think is all going to be permanently changed, and hopefully some of the changes will be for the better I really believe that.

When ventilators break, iFixit can help

When ventilators break, iFixit can help

"Hospitals ventilators dialysis machines and mechanical beds are more important than ever. Sometimes of course that equipment breaks down and some manufacturers restrict access to repair information or require that equipment be fixed by authorized technicians. Meaning that biomedical technicians working in hospitals. Can't just fix things themselves this week. Diy and repair site. I fix it published a giant database of medical equipment repair manuals to help address. That problem Kyle Wiens is CEO of. I fix it and has been leading the project. This is part of the broader trend in products for manufacturers have been locking down repairs. Apple doesn't want you to fix your iphone and medtronic doesn't want hospitals to fix their equipment. They would prefer them beyond service contracts and pay very expensive rates but the hospitals have highly qualified highly trained by medical technicians. Already on site that can do the work But you have this. Trend toward more lockdown systems manufacturers have been taking freedom away from hospitals. Is there any benefit to you? Fix It to do this. Just out of curiosity. You're not charging hospitals for access to this. We have no business while for this. This is this is maybe one of the stupidest business ideas I've ever had. We're not running advertising. We're paying for everything out of pocket. I took close to half of my team off of the normal work for the last couple of months to do. This has been an absolutely huge project larger than I think anyone manufacturer because they've done we have information on thousands of devices from hundreds of manufacturers all in one place and the biomed. Tell me that that's what they really need. They need a central easy to search repository. Not only are you not monitoring? Is there a chance that you will get some kind of trouble or get sued over this? I mean considering like you said these expensive service contracts that manufacturers would prefer to be selling. There's a there's a tension where manufacturers don't want to share the service information because it will enable competition and to that extent we are enabling that competition But I would hope the manufacturers see this as a service that we are providing we're better at hosting in sharing collaborative service information than a medical device manufacturer is so let us do what we do. Well and let them focus on on their work. Do the manufacturers have a point like they spend years of research and millions of dollars on these devices? Do they have a right to protect that intellectual property? Well we're not talking about just anyone fixing these. We're talking about bio medical technicians. The already doing this maintenance already doing this work. I if you talk with hospitals and you see what's happening day to day it can be life or death whether they can fix a machine fast. If you have a ventilator go down you have the option to mail it into a manufacturer for service. You have to fix that machine that day. This is really more about power dynamics and about trying to do is squeeze every last dime that they cannot have the hospitals by pushing them into expensive service contracts when the hospital is really are perfectly capable of doing that work themselves. The database went up earlier this week. How is demand so far? We're seeing really good reaction from from biomed technicians not just in the US around the world. I got a message today from technician in Uganda this hill. Thank you so much. This is going to be really helpful. So we're excited that this is going to be a resource that will be used for a long time to come separate for medical equipment. I see people doing projects all the time of various types. I wonder what sort of traffic you've been seeing on the site since people started quarantining. The traffic to self repair guides on the Internet is dramatically. Up during the quarantine. People are at home board. They're fixing things all things around your house on the honeydew list. They are getting done. Our fastest growing repair right. Now is the Nintendo switch. Nintendo's repair centers are shut down. There's a common problem with the left joy. Con The left joystick where it starts to drift. And it's very infuriating is you're playing games and there's a really really simple fix for it. So nintendo switch any other device repair manuals that are especially popular. We're seeing laptops across the board. All of a sudden every schoolchild needs a computer and that wasn't the case. I don't think six months ago we'd say oh. I need to get a laptop for my kid. Well maybe that's a very lucky kid back then. Now it's an absolute necessity. Every kid needs a needs a laptop. Doing school from home on the phone is not fun. And so we're seeing old laptops. Being pulled out of the jurors people are upgrading them with SST RAM to make them a little bit faster. And that's Great Kyle. Williams is the CEO of the repair. Site I fix it

"Happen like one year but action needs to be taken every Korea and the brain The most recent product of just launched Called the perceptive. DBS system has a sensing mechanism for the first time. So the first time you'll actually see Signals in the brain and understand when you stimulate what happens to signals and through that eventually actually create a closed loop system for treatment of Parkinson's and possibly essential entr tremor and again some years out who have everything in place in real patients and commercially available products to which we can start their journeys again going after things that others have given up on hypertension kills millions. Okay I started ten years ago. Others gave up gave up. Gave up using ten mute. Pursue your not afraid to spend a lot of money on something that will not pursue will not necessarily produce results in a given year. That's right as long as the the study that we do is that do we have Danjabbo and rational reason for doing it. Time the secondary the first thing is do we understand understand. Is there a reason to do it. And then we pursue it and I think the hypertension example is one of the best ones restarted. That ten years ago there was a failed trial but we didn't give up. We try understand. Why did the Trough Hill? How can we just? It isn't the cohorts we're looking after. Is it the type of technology we have is. The administration is the design of the trial. All of those were. We're open questions and Renard it down to now you know. We're close to present some pivotal trial results in March and we'll see the too early to commit to that our country is ravaged adage by a opioid addiction. And that's because no one seems to have any solution for pain. You guys are directly approaching. What causes pain and dealing dealing with it and maybe one day ending a lot of yeah and I think the stimulation again back to the understanding the nervous system? I think that's a poorly understood and Pain after pain is a sensation that you feel because of signals that are transmitted through the nervous system if you can understand that and if you can control those signals in a in a in a programmable way and in a logical way I think at some point in the future I know that We will we will address that problem and it's not just a single shot. That's probably different. Types of pain require different types of management.

This will fundamentally change how doctors visualized cancer. This is tech news briefing, im Tanya, boosters reporting from the newsroom in New York, on the heels of the democratic debate, we revisit social media's continuous struggle with election interference is a company like Facebook ready for another round of battling against constant misinformation becomes the question. CEO Mark Zuckerberg talks where it stands amid another impending election cycle. That's after these tech headlines. Apple design chief, Johnny. I've is set to depart ushering in a new era. This comes several years after becoming less involved in the day to day, business and design work at apple. However, the announcement means the removal of Apple's most prominent leader after chief executive Tim cook as he's noted as the person who most embodies, the design wizardry achieved by apple under its late chief, Steve Jobs. Bus dot com which runs a platform for turning unused buses into cash for bus owners raised fifteen million dollars.

Andy food, and Drug administration warns that certain Medtronic insulin pumps have cybersecurity gaps ones that could allow hackers to change the device settings and cause harm to diabetes patients who use them. The FDA says about four thousand patients may have used these mini med five oh, eight and mini med paradigm series pumps, which the company is recalling the pumps are from twenty twelve and earlier and Medtronic says it will replace the pumps for eligible patients. The FDA says Medtronic is unable to adequately update older pumps with any software or patches head to wsJcom. For more information coming up CEO Mark Zuckerberg, says Facebook alone, can't stop election interference, but it's still going to fight against it. With the latest tech. Verizon is working with meta viz to help doctors fight cancer. Like, never before using the power of Verizon, five G ultra wideband meta viz. We'll take two dimensional patient, imaging, whether an MRI or cat scan and converted into three dimensional holographic renderings. This will fundamentally change how doctors visualized cancer. Speaking at the Aspen ideas festival in Colorado Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg addressed the company's efforts to stop election interference, claiming the US government's failure to apply pressure to Russia, following the two thousand sixteen election sent a signal to the world that, quote, we were open for business and quote. So now he says, getting election integrity right remains at the top of Facebook's priority list. There are a number of different strategies that we've taken as a company to prevent state actors like what we've seen Russia do in, in tried to do in the twenty sixteen elections for being able to do that, again, elections around the world including the twentieth eighteen midterms and upcoming the twenty twenty elections, according to Mr. Zuckerberg, there are key tech tools in place. And many of them are working the things that have made the biggest difference are one is building up really sophisticated technical AI system. Uh-huh. And hiring a whole lot of people. We have thirty thousand people at Facebook who work on, on, on content and safety and safety review to be able to find these networks of bad actors to be able to take them off the systems before they have the opportunity to spread propaganda or misinformation or whatever they're spreading. We've gotten much more sophisticated at that. It's an arms race Russia and other folks have also gotten more sophisticated in their tactics every election. We see new tactics, but through a big investment in this, we're able to stay ahead and keep the progress going on that. However, he notes that current tools can only do so much as a private company, we don't have the tools to make the Russian government stop. Or for we can defend is best as we can. But our government is the one that has the tools to apply pressure to Russia. Not not us. Right. So. You know, one of the mistakes that I worry about is after twenty sixteen when, when the government didn't take a any kind of counteraction. The signal that was sent to the world. Was that, okay? We're open for business countries can try to do this stuff. Then our companies will try their best to try to limit it, but fundamentally there isn't going to be a major recourse from the American government. So now Zuckerberg says, Facebook remains engaged in ramping up defenses that it does have the amount that we spend on safety and security, and I was a company, it's billions of dollars a year. It is greater than the whole revenue of our company was when we went public earlier this decade. Right. So we've, we've ramped up massively on the security side. But there's very little that we can do on our own to change the incentives for nation states to act. That's something that, that is a little bit above our pay grade more on the Aspen ideas festival, head to wsJcom that wraps up this edition of tech news briefing from the newsroom in New York.

"And for also for the reason that you're talking about for the like sanity check, it doesn't need to be just what Lou what something adds up to on a piece of paper and a spreadsheet or. Whatever it's what the actual true application of the data means in the real world and employing citizens to help with that if they're given a rigorous data collection model or method as long as people are not just going out and doing whatever they want. Then I can see totally the value of it. But the first couple episodes, I think that I listened to I felt like it was much more. Well, this is a problem for me personally. So I decided to do something about it. And that makes me nervous that, you know, you're not thinking about the bigger picture, or you know, when you have one single goal in mind, I think you ignore outliers you ignore you know, things that are on the edges, but possibly should be considered. You know, if they're not I I just makes me worry about being too tunnel. Visioned if you're. Just going after something that you care about for very personal reason. I don't feel that that's where most science should necessarily be driven from. No, maybe that's a controversial thing to say. But I mean, I see your point. But I also see the point of the person who's suffering from some issue, and like doesn't see anybody really focusing right? And wanting to do something about it because they don't see an end in sight. So let me ask you, how did you feel about the prognosis episode where they talked about hacking, the glucose meter and the device for diabetes. It's the one where somebody found a sort of back door into a Medtronic device. Right Medtronic is a big medical device company, and they were talking about how complicated it is to manage diabetes. You know, it was a mom talking about her daughter having diabetes and having to wake up every few hours at night. To check the the glucose meter and potentially having a wake up to give her insulin or whatever and somebody found a back door into the device itself, and they hacked it. So that they could I didn't quite understand the whole system that they had developed, but they hooked it up to connect it to something else. And then it, you know, fed the data into some other device that may have been built or hurt early been builds in the hawk that too. And then it would automatically give them a dosage or whatever. Somehow, they didn't have to worry about it in the way, and it changed their life. Right. And then they started publishing it online. And then other people started doing it. And this like people were helping each other. And she this. This mother started helping other people hack their devices. So that it worked butter. How do you feel about that? I guess I would hope that the you know, Medtronic would notice that that is going on in. They would use that to make their device better. You know, use that for good makes me nervous again. I'm so like a conservative, I guess about science. But it makes me nervous that people mess with the way something was designed. How do you know that you're not impacting something else in the design of the device? I don't know that that makes me nervous. Yeah. Well, I mean, you can say the same thing for humans. Right. People are messing with the way we were designed with Al the crisper and the DNA, gene editing all this stuff, and they're messing with the way, we're designed, and maybe there may not individual butter or that baby better. Yeah. But I always wonder like what are the larger impacts like on the human genome and like evolution. And like I'm not talking about even the hundred years from now, I'm talking about like how we? But really long picture of human evolution. Yeah. I will say that. It's funny with a couple of the playlists that we've had in the last few months, and with this one in particular, I feel like since I started listening to episodes about a particular topic like artificial intelligence, I feel like I see episodes all the time on on my normal like subscription feed. Not that I necessarily subscribe to any more artificial intelligence related. Yeah. I guess it just seems to be like, I see it everywhere..

But in a statement to CBS news Medtronic admitted it took entirely too long to process validate and mitigate the vulnerabilities discovered by the two researchers. So do you feel vindicated? I mean, I looking for at the end of the day for those manufacturers that don't wanna move and don't wanna fix their devices.

"Have that you want to have some in my opinion some sort of component that the grows of markets over time and i would look at something like the vanguard dividend appreciation index or etf the symbol on that is v i g and that is similar to the market s and p five hundred but it has a slightly more focus on companies that are able to raise and the operative word here is raise the income that it pays out and you can just reinvest reinvest reinvest if you don't need it but you're going to see holdings alike johnson and johnson and microsoft and pepsi mcdonald's and medtronic and union pacific that's some some defense companies lockheed martin has been able to do this nike cosco some utility companies like next era energy which is the old florida power and light can think of southern company here in the us but in florida so that's the kind of etf that is market oriented market based with a dividend income leaning twist i think the real question for you though is that what is that percentage and if you're super super risk averse and you don't want to deal with any sort of market volatility then what what you won't find though over the next twenty years is a whole lot of growth out of it and that's in that might be okay for you but for somebody that doesn't necessarily need it you don't rely on it well that also makes it so that you can deal potentially with a little bit more volatility little bit more up and down so that over time it grows and then you pass it on to somebody and i don't know if you have kids or grandkids or somebody else that this would go to maybe it's church or university but this could really be an enormous amount of money it's already a big amount but it really enormous amount in twenty or thirty years if it's invested properly or at least with a little bit of eye towards growth and compounding said that would be my thought as you as you think this through dave i my thought would be is it if you really don't need to rely on it is.
