2023/09/07 - The Social and Financial Impact of Healthcare

[NEW EPISODE] The Social and Financial Impact of Healthcare

Thursdays 5:00pm - 6:00pm (EDT)

The audience will learn how personal and institutional healthcare in our society has created social and financial impacts on our society including on our mental health, on climate change, on collective trauma and on our economy.

James Swanson returns to Frank About Health to have an open discussion on the healthcare ecosystem that first evolved out of the COVID19 Pandemic and has now led to an increasing dependency on new innovation, technological solutions and financial programs that have both been integrated and developed in order to offset the costs incurred on patients, medical professionals and our overall society. James Swanson's experience as a Chartered Financial Professional and formerly as a portfolio manager for MFS Investments in Boston has become an advocate for Technological Innovation in finding cures for chronic illnesses as well as been a supporter for Frank About Health and the campaigns that the show will be launching in the next few months.

00:00:05.540 --> 00:00:06.380 Okay.

00:00:44.500 --> 00:01:02.419 Frank R. Harrison: hey, everybody, and welcome to a new episode of Frank about help today is September seventh, 2023. If you had heard my encore presentation of last week's show which aired today on talk radio dot. Nyc. At one Pm. I said that this week I was gonna be coming with a surprise guest.

00:01:02.480 --> 00:01:31.429 Frank R. Harrison: Well, he isn't a surprise for those of you watching the show, because he's been here on my fiftieth episode. He's been here with special guests, Ben Lidl and Phyllis Quinlan. He's also been here to help talk about a lot of innovations in medical care. But why is he a surprise Guest, because, as you'll hear throughout the hour, we're gonna be talking about how the healthcare system and our society at large has gone through a lot of social and financial impacts in terms of the climate change issues that have been

00:01:31.430 --> 00:01:41.369 Frank R. Harrison: are rising over the summer months as well as anything having to do with what I discussed last week with what happened in Maui, with the fires that completely

00:01:41.950 --> 00:01:48.529 Frank R. Harrison: destroyed the historic town of Lahaina. Then there is a the resurgence of Covid

00:01:48.570 --> 00:01:59.649 Frank R. Harrison: also concerns about what's gonna happen in 2024. If certain things happen in our society that a lot of us are not willing to go back to, but that's all left to your interpretation.

00:01:59.700 --> 00:02:18.630 Frank R. Harrison: and I am trying to also be very professional. With my surprise Guest, James Swanson, because he is a professional himself. I'm gonna give you his background. But first I want to issue my disclaimer due to the fact that this particular episode of frank about health is gonna really look at financial and social issues.

00:02:18.640 --> 00:02:42.300 Frank R. Harrison: There may be controversial topics discussed. So I want to make it clear that these are not the opinions up beyond Frank about health, but rather the points of view of my guest. Today. James Swanson, as well as food for thought for you to take into consideration. When considering your plans for your own healthcare treatment and advocacy, we are not suggesting that you

00:02:42.300 --> 00:02:54.619 Frank R. Harrison: discontinue any of the treatment protocols you are currently engaged in, or your medicines, or your specialists, or your insurance provider. We're just looking to provide you with food for thought that you can communicate with your friends and family

00:02:54.640 --> 00:03:00.180 Frank R. Harrison: that all being said, let me introduce James Swanson first by his background alone.

00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:18.669 Frank R. Harrison: James Swanson is a chartered financial analyst, and also was spending over 35 years of his career at Mfs investment management in Boston, Massachusetts. He is an experienced portfolio manager, focused on multi asset investments.

00:03:18.670 --> 00:03:32.609 Frank R. Harrison: He was a senior vice president there, and he also was an investment strategist there. He has appeared on Bloomberg television. He's been on Cnbc. He's been on Npr. He's also been

00:03:32.610 --> 00:03:56.369 Frank R. Harrison: written up in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, and, as I mentioned earlier, he has been a regular contributor to Frank about health, and so, for this reason alone, since I did mention last week that I was back from my hiatus, and I wanted to really move forward in the fall with showing my advocacy to all the changes that have occurred. I wanted to have a very frank discussion

00:03:56.370 --> 00:04:13.920 Frank R. Harrison: with James Swanson about the impacts. What his points of view have been probably the insights that I'm unaware of of things that we together, not just myself, but also the listeners and viewers out there can do to help contribute to the change that's necessary to help bring back our community.

00:04:13.940 --> 00:04:23.609 Frank R. Harrison: But it's post covid community, or the survivors of the Maui fires, or even trying to do what we can to minimize climate change as it continues to progress.

00:04:23.740 --> 00:04:53.319 Frank R. Harrison: Okay, that's a lot of food for thought James again. Also, everyone out there be aware he's also the father of a very dear friend of mine who has been helpful to me on on this show. Danielle Swanson, who has her own podcast comfortable change available on spotify. And for this reason I really consider him not just a colleague and a professional in the healthcare space, especially the portfolio side, but also a dear friend, so that, all being said.

00:04:53.330 --> 00:04:54.780 Frank R. Harrison: welcome back, James.

00:04:55.170 --> 00:04:57.429 James Swanson’s iPad: Thank you, Frank. Thanks for having me.

00:04:58.410 --> 00:05:14.919 Frank R. Harrison: Umhm, you know. Ladies and gentlemen also. He is a graduate of Harvard University as well as Colgate University. Very well rounded professional background, and a lot of information that I am looking forward to discuss with him

00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:16.620 Frank R. Harrison: overall

00:05:16.790 --> 00:05:23.270 Frank R. Harrison: In the past few months, especially the summer months. What would you say? Has been the biggest

00:05:23.520 --> 00:05:33.010 Frank R. Harrison: issues that have either surprised you or that you were not anticipating, especially after we've just recovered from 3 years of Covid.

00:05:33.840 --> 00:05:51.870 James Swanson’s iPad: I think one of the things is the resiliency, at least in the near term of the Us. Economy. We are at a point where most anyone who wants a job can get one. I don't think that will persist. I didn't. I didn't think inflation would come back.

00:05:52.050 --> 00:06:07.399 James Swanson’s iPad: But the economy is doing very well after Covid. But remember, the German economy is going downward. The Uk economy is going downward in the biggest economy. China is going downward, so we're in a very good spot, and I hope we can continue that here.

00:06:09.570 --> 00:06:23.790 Frank R. Harrison: Yes, absolutely. Now I know, speaking about the economy. One of the biggest pieces of legislation that our our current President issued about a year ago, is the Inflation Reduction Act. Now, what would be your take in terms of

00:06:23.820 --> 00:06:43.810 Frank R. Harrison: what that act was meant to do in the short term and the long term I mean, everyone knows that they are now offering insulin for medicaid recipients and diabetic patients at the rate of $35 each. But what would you say other than that would be some of the short term benefits of that in relation to the economy as well as healthcare.

00:06:44.280 --> 00:06:57.140 James Swanson’s iPad: We asked about the short term benefits, and I think it's very similar in a way to the Covid Relief packages that were promulgated by the President and passed by the Congress when we went through the epidemic.

00:06:57.470 --> 00:07:08.209 James Swanson’s iPad: And it's meant to basically shelter or cushion. People who are experiencing high rates of inflation. Don't have enough money to pay for medicine.

00:07:08.360 --> 00:07:11.820 James Swanson’s iPad: Among other things, they're also talking about housing and some other things.

00:07:11.950 --> 00:07:20.819 James Swanson’s iPad: And this is the impetus behind it to make sure people don't fall behind, particularly when it comes to medical care.

00:07:20.930 --> 00:07:26.879 James Swanson’s iPad: The problem is it's packaged as inflation, relief, or

00:07:26.980 --> 00:07:30.100 James Swanson’s iPad: trying to maybe do something about inflation.

00:07:30.250 --> 00:07:46.660 James Swanson’s iPad: But if inflation's the problem, we have to go back to first principles, what is inflation and inflation always in all countries, in all times is the creation of more money at a faster rate than the amount of goods and services being produced

00:07:46.880 --> 00:07:49.330 James Swanson’s iPad: that creates excess demand.

00:07:49.580 --> 00:07:57.129 James Swanson’s iPad: And what these bills now before the Congress, and from the President in in terms of inflation. Relief

00:07:57.300 --> 00:08:10.500 James Swanson’s iPad: probably will help many people in the near term. In the long term. They don't increase the supply of goods and services, and that leaves us if inflation's a negative. And I think most people think it is.

00:08:10.630 --> 00:08:19.999 James Swanson’s iPad: Now we're gonna have more inflation down the road. And the question is, how often can you fix something short term and not eventually pay a cost?

00:08:21.590 --> 00:08:42.669 Frank R. Harrison: Incredible. So is that why you hear all of? I don't know if it's media driven, or even on social media. Is that why we hear the controversy over? If someone like President Biden should run for reelection. Or is that unrelated? I think that's unrelated. I think the comments about

00:08:43.320 --> 00:08:49.900 James Swanson’s iPad: the current President relate to age. I think it's perceptions of ability to execute

00:08:49.970 --> 00:09:05.970 James Swanson’s iPad: for age. And and because we've seen some people in Congress fail spectacularly in public, I think people are saying, What if this happens to this President, shouldn't we reconsider or shouldn't hit? Yeah, II think that's not. I don't think it's an inflation.

00:09:06.570 --> 00:09:24.060 Frank R. Harrison: Okay, okay? So in in other words. What we're what we are seeing with the Inflation reduction act is that he created a short term solution coming out of a pandemic with some possible long term consequences that don't really reflect positively, but it.

00:09:24.060 --> 00:09:39.109 Frank R. Harrison: It has to be considered in an open mindset that there are other kinds of stipulations or riders, if you will, that can be adjusted in order to minimize the return to inflation over the long term. They just

00:09:39.650 --> 00:09:54.599 Frank R. Harrison: not seeing the long term vision of the plan. They're just looking at what is immediately changing and what's gonna happen overall. But the middle of the road the gray area is still unknown to most people correct.

00:09:54.770 --> 00:10:22.140 James Swanson’s iPad: right? And and if I were fantasizing on the President's advisor, and he said to me, Is this enough? Is this a good plan? I would say, no. You need to put incentives to increase the supply of goods and services. There's nothing in this that increases the number of physicians or nurses, aids. There's nothing that increases the number of medical facilities to handle the population, and particularly if we go through another round of Covid

00:10:22.390 --> 00:10:39.190 James Swanson’s iPad: and particularly long term Hospice type care centers. There's nothing in this to increase the supply. So if you're increasing the amount of dollars in the system, or shackles, or one or any other currency in a system.

00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:58.919 James Swanson’s iPad: and you don't increase the supply of goods and services. The prices will then rise again. We're experiencing inflation as a result of Covid and all of the restrictions that happened. And now to fix that, we might be adding to the problem. And and I would say, No, let's look at a more balanced approach.

00:11:00.820 --> 00:11:01.510 Frank R. Harrison: Hmm!

00:11:01.740 --> 00:11:21.979 Frank R. Harrison: So what would you say that the whether it's the COVID-19 pandemic, or what life has been like in 2023, when we've all been lifted from all those mandates, what would you say has been the biggest social impact on all of us? Is it just coming out of the pandemic? Or is it just not being adjusted to a new normal per se?

00:11:22.610 --> 00:11:29.889 James Swanson’s iPad: I think the number one issue is, it is created flexibility in terms of where people work.

00:11:29.980 --> 00:11:47.659 James Swanson’s iPad: people with children at home, people that need dual careers, people who don't want to spend 3 HA day commuting it relieves the system of that and the tie up in real estate, which is expensive. All these office buildings

00:11:47.770 --> 00:11:57.539 James Swanson’s iPad: we don't need as many office bills now. It will hurt a financial sector of the economy, namely, commercial. Real estate is being heard as we speak.

00:11:57.730 --> 00:12:07.859 James Swanson’s iPad: but in the long run it may make people more productive and more flexible in how they conduct their lives. And that's the direct result of Covid.

00:12:09.600 --> 00:12:24.009 Frank R. Harrison: Wow! And that just came to a conclusion which please correct me if I'm wrong. But it looks as though people in the rental market would be more attractive to businesses, and people in the housing market are more attractive

00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:29.570 Frank R. Harrison: to ownership, like in condominiums and style style living. Is that correct?

00:12:29.660 --> 00:12:48.280 James Swanson’s iPad: I think so. But the other issue, in addition to what you've brought up very aptly, is the idea that people can live more remotely, and you might see, and I don't know if we've seen it yet. But we might see people. We are seeing people move to Southern cities even more than we were before Covid.

00:12:48.320 --> 00:13:10.880 James Swanson’s iPad: But moving outside the urban areas and because the urban areas are where the office buildings are concentrated. Well, if you don't need that, and you can get cheaper housing, whether through ownership or rental. Outside the cities you will see a migration. I think that's beginning now, and that's a that'll be a major social change for a country like the Us to adapt.

00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:22.050 Frank R. Harrison: Well, so I mean, we're about to take our first break. But to close what we've just said as a major social change. But do you think that's gonna happen like

00:13:22.250 --> 00:13:25.450 Frank R. Harrison: before the end of this year, or will it be a year or 2 out?

00:13:25.640 --> 00:13:44.679 James Swanson’s iPad: I think it's a process. There are lead and lag times with people making decisions about where they live and how they're going to finance that. But it's a societal change that I don't think's going back. And and major tech companies are having trouble bringing people back in the office. They're they're unwilling to do it.

00:13:44.750 --> 00:13:49.060 James Swanson’s iPad: So I think it will be over the next 2 to 3 years you'll see a shift

00:13:49.730 --> 00:14:16.760 Frank R. Harrison: incredible! Incredible! Alright, ladies and gentlemen, please stay tuned as we are talking with James Swanson on the social and financial impacts on healthcare as a result of the various changes that we've all gone through from COVID-19 to the climate and other things that we will discuss later on in the show, right here on talk radio, dot, Nyc and on our Facebook Youtube twitch and Linkedin channels. So please stay tuned. We'll be back in a few.

00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:13.550 and you

00:16:29.240 --> 00:16:58.730 Frank R. Harrison: everybody and welcome back. We're here with James Swanson. We just had some insights in terms of what the biggest changes have been as a result of completing the COVID-19 pandemic, and all of us are now looking at changes impacting internal migration, not to mention the migration we hear about on the news of people coming into New York, or people coming into California or other places through the border on Texas side or Florida side, and it creating a lot of other kinds of controversy.

00:16:58.730 --> 00:17:06.990 Frank R. Harrison: But one thing that I really have observed over the summer, and during my hiatus is, our climate is definitely at the point of

00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:25.540 Frank R. Harrison: I mean, it's been coming a long time, but it's at the point of appearing to be disintegrating. Now that's my point of view, based on having witnessed, as we all did. What happened to Laina in Maui here in New York, when we looked like Mars for an entire day or 2 days.

00:17:25.540 --> 00:17:48.019 Frank R. Harrison: when the forest fires smoke was coming over the entire city and turned our entire city Orange and of recent hurricanes in California, which is like the first time in 48 years, not to mention the recent hurricane that just went through Florida, and another one that's coming along the way named Hurricane Lee. That's at Category 4. At this point

00:17:48.510 --> 00:17:56.189 Frank R. Harrison: it looks extreme. And what? My! I guess my concern that I want to learn from you, James, to see if I'm onto something.

00:17:56.240 --> 00:18:04.940 Frank R. Harrison: Would you say? One of the biggest problems that all of us maybe just didn't do much about or were unprepared for?

00:18:04.970 --> 00:18:17.290 Frank R. Harrison: Is climate change? Is that what you're seeing to be one of the biggest levers or drivers of the way our ecosystem in healthcare is affecting our society.

00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:28.440 James Swanson’s iPad: Well, it certainly is important. And let me give you one example. The biggest source of wealth for the average American household is their well, their home.

00:18:28.810 --> 00:18:41.489 James Swanson’s iPad: and we're seeing insurers pull back from home insurance, which is a form of casualty insurance. If something happens to your house, flood fire storm wind damage.

00:18:41.610 --> 00:19:05.390 James Swanson’s iPad: and they are now uninsuring whole parts of California, Arizona, Florida, Texas, and saying, We can't do this anymore, because it's the cost of these weather changes is too much. We we can't suffer that burden, so you'll have to, either. You know. Insure yourself, which means, if you lose your house.

00:19:06.020 --> 00:19:20.730 James Swanson’s iPad: they're not gonna come through. You don't have an insurance policy, and a lot of people are willing to go without these types of policies, and a lot of people are being taken off them. They're just being forcibly said. We're not gonna provide the insurance now.

00:19:20.750 --> 00:19:41.509 James Swanson’s iPad: when large numbers of people get displaced because of, let's say you mentioned hurricanes, what will happen, they'll turn to the government and the government. We're talking about inflation before this all ties together. The long term effects of all of these things covid. Now climate change. They tie together, the government will step in and say, we'll rebuild your house.

00:19:41.550 --> 00:19:45.490 James Swanson’s iPad: We will give you temporary housing and give you food and shelter.

00:19:45.710 --> 00:19:55.049 James Swanson’s iPad: but already the debt burden on the Us. Is greater than it was after World War 2. And this country rebuilt much of Europe.

00:19:55.090 --> 00:20:02.920 James Swanson’s iPad: This on us to do that. And now you're saying, well, we're having more hurricanes, more fires.

00:20:03.040 --> 00:20:15.760 James Swanson’s iPad: The Government now, because the private sector won't ensure, will now have to be the insurer last resort, and that adds to the supply of money, because the government basically has to tax

00:20:15.870 --> 00:20:19.110 James Swanson’s iPad: the populace to pay off the debt to do this.

00:20:19.140 --> 00:20:28.669 James Swanson’s iPad: So it's inflationary in the long run. It's not helpful to the economy. And the question people have to ask, is is there another solution?

00:20:30.450 --> 00:20:58.720 Frank R. Harrison: Yeah, no, II agree, I could see that from a from a health perspective, this is definitely impacting mental health issues. But from a economic perspective. If what you're saying is going on which I believe you, especially in California. Other States will follow. I'm sure New York will be one of them to drop people from their home insurance or their renters, insurance, or whatever other liability policies might currently be in play. But

00:20:58.720 --> 00:21:11.860 Frank R. Harrison: that is making me, then wonder when we hear about new health care, provisions like Medicare advantage, or even when we hear about protections that the health system or the hospital systems are doing.

00:21:12.010 --> 00:21:13.770 Frank R. Harrison: does that become just

00:21:14.030 --> 00:21:23.969 Frank R. Harrison: rhetoric? Or is that actually an offset for what they're not able to provide for their homes, but at least to guarantee for their individual health protection?

00:21:24.780 --> 00:21:35.459 Frank R. Harrison: I mean II am just wondering. How is it that 1012 years ago, pre obamacare, it was impossible to get an individual policy, and now we have all of these benefits coming in on

00:21:35.750 --> 00:21:55.040 Frank R. Harrison: on multiple levels, including improving on senior health benefits, opening up pool trusts on Medicaid. And of course, Cdp Apap program which I've been personally involved with in the care of my cousin. These are things that I thought were impossible, and now they seem to be more readily available.

00:21:55.050 --> 00:22:07.590 Frank R. Harrison: yet at the same time, what you've just said as an impact of climate change when things are being pulled like the rug being pulled under you if you're a homeowner. I'm wondering if there's a trade off going on.

00:22:07.690 --> 00:22:30.010 James Swanson’s iPad: I don't know if it's a direct trade off, but it's another issue that the government and private industry have addressed, I think, pretty intelligently. And here's why mental health seems to be a bigger and bigger problem. We can. We can measure that. And we have better ways of measuring suicidal thoughts actual suicides among sub groups.

00:22:30.150 --> 00:22:38.699 James Swanson’s iPad: We're seeing the number of days outside the work system because of mental health issues which would be anxiety, depression.

00:22:38.780 --> 00:22:45.409 James Swanson’s iPad: These types of mental health disorders are taxing the economy at a tremendous rate.

00:22:45.610 --> 00:23:12.439 James Swanson’s iPad: and they were largely uninsured. When I first went into the workforce you couldn't go to a therapist and and ask your medical provider through your company to pay for that they pay for real. Oh, you have a real physical element, you ailment. You broke your leg. We'll pay for that. But we're not going to pay for you to talk to a therapist. Well, now they will, and it's important because we were losing so many men and women hours of work in the workforce.

00:23:12.440 --> 00:23:16.440 James Swanson’s iPad: It was another drain on the economy, and I think it was correct

00:23:16.440 --> 00:23:32.009 James Swanson’s iPad: that both the Government, the Medicare system, is doing this, and private insurers are at least allowing some benefit and and reduce co-pays for mental health. And it's gonna help the economy in the long run, because it'll make us more productive.

00:23:34.340 --> 00:23:53.509 Frank R. Harrison: Incredible. I was just thinking, you know, I mean, obviously, as an epileptic patient. I have gone through my own versions of Ptsd. Among other kinds of anxieties and and depression oriented issues. So I do recall at time when I was seeing a therapist 10 years ago, where they only covered like

00:23:53.550 --> 00:24:01.660 Frank R. Harrison: 20 visits or 30 visits and 3 emergency visits. And now my insurance is covering everything at 80%

00:24:01.690 --> 00:24:12.019 Frank R. Harrison: unlimited visits. And I thought it was because of just Medicare advantage. But this may actually be the impact of legislation like we mentioned earlier the inflation reduction act. Correct.

00:24:12.140 --> 00:24:19.960 Frank R. Harrison: Yes. Keeping in mind what you just said, that mental health has become an outgrowth of everything that is is now a necessity instead of a commodity.

00:24:20.510 --> 00:24:30.840 James Swanson’s iPad: Yes, I agree with that. And remember these are related the rise of mental health issues. particularly among young people. I think they're concerned about what you just mentioned. Climate change.

00:24:31.130 --> 00:24:41.850 James Swanson’s iPad: And what if there's another pandemic, or what if they can't control the next pandemic. This is on a lot of people's minds. It's an it's another set of worries

00:24:43.040 --> 00:24:48.020 Frank R. Harrison: right right? And and is it safe to say that, unfortunately.

00:24:48.050 --> 00:25:01.310 Frank R. Harrison: based on the way our society was pre covid, that the communication skills needed to discuss these post pandemic issues were never formed correctly enough, or maybe it took podcast platforms like this one

00:25:01.310 --> 00:25:20.699 Frank R. Harrison: to be able to foster those communications that need to happen between parent and child or spouses, or or friends, or even, you know, they talk about social media disease, people getting paranoid and image problems when they look at certain channels that probably are providing misinformation. It's almost like

00:25:20.770 --> 00:25:32.309 Frank R. Harrison: we're pedaling. We're not pedaling forward. What's the right word? We're doubling down. We're trying to catch up to where we could have been prior to the pandemic, and now it's even more critical than ever

00:25:32.320 --> 00:25:43.850 Frank R. Harrison: the communication aspect. I think you're right, but I don't want to ring my hands because I'm interested in neurology, particularly because of epilepsy. And I'm watching podcasts that I never could do. 10 years ago

00:25:44.050 --> 00:26:02.979 James Swanson’s iPad: from these neurology departments at Stanford and University of Pennsylvania. And now I'm learning the impact of climate change, of these diseases of social unrest on the human psyche and the the cost it's taking. But now they are addressing it. We're finding ways to

00:26:03.180 --> 00:26:18.289 James Swanson’s iPad: make people with epilepsy feel less isolated or not put off in a box somewhere, and people with depression and schizophrenia. There we have more intelligent ways of bringing these people into the community, and that's that's the positive side of it.

00:26:19.800 --> 00:26:25.659 Frank R. Harrison: We have a comment from twitch from cerebral wind. And this is a quote.

00:26:25.860 --> 00:26:37.639 Frank R. Harrison: It is also does. It also doesn't help younger folks. Mental health when so many members of Congress and government in general are near fossils that don't have our best interests at heart.

00:26:37.690 --> 00:26:47.710 Frank R. Harrison: I know when it comes to our government a lot of comments are perceptual based. So they're not meant to be our thoughts that we're giving to the public. But

00:26:47.770 --> 00:26:56.009 Frank R. Harrison: what is your take on that comment? I I'm I'm in the middle of it. II agree in certain instances, but I also disagree on others.

00:26:56.400 --> 00:27:08.069 James Swanson’s iPad: Well, young people are in a particularly tough spot, because there's such a volume of change in their lives. It's very hard to adapt to AI. Climate change.

00:27:08.260 --> 00:27:09.640 James Swanson’s iPad: pandemics

00:27:09.710 --> 00:27:36.080 James Swanson’s iPad: and social unrest all at once. If you're a young person looking. How do I live my life? And then the older people are still clinging to old ways of thinking about things. You know the the old ways of the. This is the way we used to do it. Kind of thing. And I, you know, I think there should be a younger force in Congress. I would like to see that. And there are 2 young Congress people in my State that are absolutely brilliant. I would love to see people hear more from them.

00:27:37.640 --> 00:27:54.810 Frank R. Harrison: No, III mean, I agree with you, especially on the part of younger people who are really the ones that are even more technically adept than when we were growing up. It's like a reverse system that the pandemic has shifted where we're now more dependent on the younger set to help

00:27:55.300 --> 00:28:15.189 Frank R. Harrison: give us the technological support, advance through the climate change issues, help with the mental health programs and stuff like that. Although we just have a conundrum going on when you've got of the a lot of the inexperienced younger set who are really advocating for the past, which didn't work. So that's when I get into my

00:28:15.190 --> 00:28:32.869 Frank R. Harrison: my 50 50 split on the younger set. It's like this. Gotta be some new testing methodology for any of the younger candidates coming into the election cycle that'll be next year. That would also see if they're mentally fit to take on the real challenges rather than be

00:28:33.200 --> 00:28:38.619 Frank R. Harrison: advocates for misinformation, which is what I think we saw in the last

00:28:38.910 --> 00:28:49.919 Frank R. Harrison: prior to, you know, in in prior to Biden. Is that safe to say, yeah, interesting. I don't know why people are willing to

00:28:49.940 --> 00:29:04.019 James Swanson’s iPad: theories rather than always act. Ask for the facts first. I was always trained. Get the facts, make sure you know what's true and not true. Before you establish a belief. But there are lots of people who just wish to believe.

00:29:04.500 --> 00:29:06.259 James Swanson’s iPad: You know things that are told.

00:29:07.600 --> 00:29:13.030 Frank R. Harrison: and and I think, like I once I think I once told you, I believe perception is everything.

00:29:13.120 --> 00:29:26.760 Frank R. Harrison: and therefore, if people are living only on perceptions without the proper knowledge. That's what we have to screen out for. We're about to take another break. But before I do, I'm going to give you another comment. That also came from cerebral wind.

00:29:27.040 --> 00:29:30.670 Frank R. Harrison: Quote unquote. Honestly, we need a lower minimum age

00:29:30.680 --> 00:29:33.930 Frank R. Harrison: to join Congress and an age limit.

00:29:33.990 --> 00:29:43.509 Frank R. Harrison: If you're 70 or over, you shouldn't be allowed to remain in Congress. In other words, I could see him saying that once you've reached 70, then they issue term limits.

00:29:44.110 --> 00:30:01.900 Frank R. Harrison: but keep it the way. It is like, I know, in the Senate to 6 year term, and if you're under 70 you can keep reelecting, reelecting, reelecting, but once you get to 700, almost like the payout of a roth for a one K or rough Ira. When you get to 59 and a half. That's when you could take your distribution.

00:30:01.960 --> 00:30:14.059 Frank R. Harrison: Alright, so thank you for your comments. Cerebral Wynn, please, giving more as we proceed through the show. But, as I said, we're about to take our next break. So please stay tuned right here on Frank, about health, on twitch.

00:30:14.100 --> 00:30:21.120 Frank R. Harrison: on Facebook, on Youtube and on Linkedin and on talk radio and Nyc. We will be back in a few.

00:32:24.570 --> 00:32:37.400 E. No, there's a real potentialist. Her name is Anne Fedori at Children's Hospital. She's raising zebra fish in her lab. and she is interjecting genetic

00:32:38.190 --> 00:32:55.069 mutations into her fish. They live 3 years there. So in 12 years you get 4 generations of these fish. she's focusing on epilepsy, and Frank is very experienced with that particular affliction affliction of what it does to 2% of humanity.

00:32:55.120 --> 00:33:10.359 But now they're finding with Crispr they can edit the gene makeup of these fish, and if they could do this with human beings. to alter Alzheimer's, Alzheimer's isn't necessarily a genetic disease, but it has a genetic component

00:33:10.400 --> 00:33:36.969 and other types of dementia, and if we all have to save the money it takes to live a high quality of life without technology, I would be discouraged, but I'm excited about what I'm reading about what I'm hearing, and I've met some of these people, and one more. I just want to throw out there and then Phyllis and Ben jump in fmri, which is functional magnetic resonance resonance machines.

00:33:37.150 --> 00:34:00.709 they're now watching how the hippocampus lights up when fear occurs, or someone makes a use of a word in a political statement that's negative and causes you to vote a certain way. The amygdala or the hippocampus lights up. It's crude now. But what is happening in that field of neurology

00:34:00.710 --> 00:34:17.460 is beginning to shed light on how our brains and biases work. And if we can educate people that they have inherent biases, or there are things that light up in their brain, without their conscious awareness and make it conscious

00:34:17.520 --> 00:34:27.699 we will have a better life out there, and companies are jumping on this. So there is hope, and I want to leave a hopeful word there and and let you 2 jump in.

00:34:35.659 --> 00:35:04.559 Frank R. Harrison: That was your last appearance on Frank about health. I think we recorded that show and aired it around Thanksgiving time last year 2022. But it was insightful. Especially the quote when you're talking about the technology and innovation that is gonna actually create more impacts into the way we're trying to recover from the pandemic and deal with issues like mental health and climate change. And of course there was a reference to epilepsy. I know you're interested in neurological illness.

00:35:04.560 --> 00:35:16.569 Frank R. Harrison: So I just wanted to say, I think you were just as much the potentialists on that show as our special guest at night, Ben Lidl was, and I'm very interested to know

00:35:16.930 --> 00:35:25.610 Frank R. Harrison: here, 10 months later. since that appearance. Are you seeing a lot of what you said back then coming to like today.

00:35:26.400 --> 00:35:48.670 James Swanson’s iPad: Yeah. So it's it's gotten even better. We we haven't cured Alzheimer's or epilepsy, as you know. But the advances continue to come out of these fields, and that, you know, when we talked about fmri and lighting up parts of the brain. But now they're going in with different types of

00:35:49.110 --> 00:36:09.759 James Swanson’s iPad: call electronic sensors that they're placing in the brain where they can not only find where the, for example, seizures come from, but find out exactly what the synapses are that are causing depression or schizophrenia. And they're finding that synapses are little tiny computers that communicate with the neurons.

00:36:10.000 --> 00:36:29.439 James Swanson’s iPad: And now they're be able to break that down and saying, This is where the malfunction is. We're within a few years of fixing a lot of this, because now we can look into the synapses. And this is exciting stuff. Science is giving us a new world. It's not tomorrow, but it's day by day. It's not right.

00:36:30.340 --> 00:36:52.539 Frank R. Harrison: What was unique about Ben Lidl's appearance on the show is, he said that it was happening right then and there, even though, of course, in discussing his book and the show. He said this was going to be happening over the years coming, but the fact is, most people and this is my own opinion, really in terms of why younger set, or even the older set is not willing to change, is easily enough.

00:36:52.580 --> 00:37:03.760 Frank R. Harrison: or because of fear, or because they're in a mindset that is unchangeable at that point, or the younger set. They don't have all of the information they need to foster that change.

00:37:03.910 --> 00:37:08.680 Frank R. Harrison: It's a constant idea of living with perception

00:37:09.010 --> 00:37:24.210 Frank R. Harrison: and hypothesizing about the future while making differences to the past, but not living in the moment. And I think technology is helping people to live in the moment, because we all know, like even doing the show. This is right. Now live.

00:37:24.360 --> 00:37:33.870 Frank R. Harrison: and we can have our real, refreshing thoughts and ideas and communication happen regardless of what we discussed prior to the show.

00:37:33.980 --> 00:37:45.519 Frank R. Harrison: The thing is is that what I'm interested to know is is that still the missing element which is creating all of the mental deficits that people are feeling, whether it's the depression, the anxiety.

00:37:46.070 --> 00:37:48.369 Frank R. Harrison: or or Ptsd.

00:37:49.290 --> 00:37:55.730 James Swanson’s iPad: It's a good question. I don't know the origin of this rise in mental

00:37:55.850 --> 00:38:18.509 James Swanson’s iPad: disorders, let's call it, but they are getting more information and more studies are being done on the effect of social media on people's not only their behavior, but their mental state. The idea that they're always being compared to an ideal when you're just fine, is who you are. But if you're constantly looking at

00:38:18.530 --> 00:38:31.790 James Swanson’s iPad: a oh, how what a perfect meal or perfect body! So and so that. And you're fed that 8 HA day, you begin to feel like there is something wrong with you. And this is happening on a massive scale.

00:38:31.900 --> 00:38:35.829 James Swanson’s iPad: And the way. Social media allows people to say nasty things

00:38:36.640 --> 00:38:52.629 James Swanson’s iPad: without looking someone in the face right there and then in the room. They can get away with it. They're they're in San Francisco, and you're in Beijing. And these nasty forums are affecting people's mental state, too, and we never had this kind of

00:38:52.650 --> 00:38:55.280 James Swanson’s iPad: organized massive

00:38:55.470 --> 00:38:58.370 James Swanson’s iPad: on demand, nastiness.

00:38:58.810 --> 00:39:01.860 James Swanson’s iPad: verbal attacks. and

00:39:02.100 --> 00:39:16.279 James Swanson’s iPad: general unease and unfavorable comparisons. You always in high school. Compare yourself to the cool kids on the football team or the cheerleaders. But now people are telling you you're not as good as everyone else.

00:39:16.400 --> 00:39:21.530 James Swanson’s iPad: 8 HA day. It's it's it's got to be taking its toll

00:39:22.530 --> 00:39:32.419 Frank R. Harrison: right right, and even just from what you said alone. When people became used to living their lives virtually like on zoom during the pandemic.

00:39:32.570 --> 00:39:42.820 Frank R. Harrison: there was the loss of human connection that after repeated constant distancing from family and friends and loved ones, and whatever

00:39:43.000 --> 00:39:55.609 Frank R. Harrison: just coming back to that, it's it's almost like a foreign interaction. I don't want to use that term loosely. I don't mean foreign, as in another country or another ethnic group, but it's it's like

00:39:55.800 --> 00:40:11.990 Frank R. Harrison: the ability to connect has been frayed or has been disjointed, and that might also be a trigger for these exacerbating mental health issues and suicidal ideation, and not to mention gun violence, which in itself is another topic. But

00:40:12.040 --> 00:40:19.270 Frank R. Harrison: for our world, forgetting the climate now for our world to be in continual organized disarray.

00:40:19.460 --> 00:40:31.880 Frank R. Harrison: I can see how artificial intelligence comes into the play to stabilize things. But then there's the what if is it? Gonna replace me? Is it? Gonna give me the truth is it gonna make me look like a plagiarist.

00:40:32.090 --> 00:40:37.510 Frank R. Harrison: you know. So the reality testing seems to be sorely lacking

00:40:37.590 --> 00:40:49.379 Frank R. Harrison: after what we have just gone through and what we are continuing to go through in the area of our environment and in the area of trying to create better change in Congress.

00:40:50.150 --> 00:40:57.260 Frank R. Harrison: Where do we go? It's like we all have to start with ourselves, which I always say on the show. Start with yourself.

00:40:57.540 --> 00:40:58.540 Frank R. Harrison: But

00:40:58.920 --> 00:41:05.609 Frank R. Harrison: I believe everyone now should also be totally in tune with their own therapist.

00:41:05.710 --> 00:41:12.009 Frank R. Harrison: their own reflector. so that they know that they're going forward correctly

00:41:12.170 --> 00:41:41.690 Frank R. Harrison: and not with the confusion of whatever the media is saying, or whatever technology is saying or whatever your past has told you. You know I'm frank about health. I've talked about narcissism on several occasions, and I had discovered that in my life, which is why I talked about it on the show. But that might have been arise due to the restriction in connecting with each other, and that might be fundamentally. Now, what's driving all of the confusion in our society?

00:41:41.760 --> 00:41:46.899 Frank R. Harrison: I know it's a big impact that obviously will take its time. But

00:41:47.070 --> 00:41:51.379 Frank R. Harrison: I think one thing that I hope everyone learns to do somehow

00:41:51.440 --> 00:41:56.009 Frank R. Harrison: is learn to live in the moment as best as possible.

00:41:56.100 --> 00:42:03.589 Frank R. Harrison: because we don't know what's going to change, and when it's not going to be no 6 months from now anymore. It's like 6 days from now.

00:42:03.730 --> 00:42:07.909 Frank R. Harrison: You, you would agree that the speed of change has increased as well, hasn't it?

00:42:08.580 --> 00:42:12.019 James Swanson’s iPad: I think it has. Yeah, very.

00:42:12.190 --> 00:42:14.320 James Swanson’s iPad: almost measurably. Yes.

00:42:15.840 --> 00:42:27.420 Frank R. Harrison: What would you say has been in your discussion, both on that show that I just showed, as well as in your research, the correlation between the mental health changes and neurological health.

00:42:27.490 --> 00:42:35.640 Frank R. Harrison: Would you say that there are segments that are combining the 2? Or is it just social issues that have driven the mental health?

00:42:36.180 --> 00:42:53.689 James Swanson’s iPad: Social issues have driven the awareness that mental health is equally important as the body itself, and they're intertwined. This idea that we have a body and a mind to separate things is pretty much gone now in in current society.

00:42:53.780 --> 00:43:01.510 James Swanson’s iPad: and we realize that we need both. And I think that's that's the big change that's going on. But how do we

00:43:01.710 --> 00:43:10.139 James Swanson’s iPad: prepare people? For example, let's try another thing. Good. We're talking about the effects on the economy of people working remotely.

00:43:10.310 --> 00:43:16.659 James Swanson’s iPad: But now they're finding. The lack of socialization affects their oxytocin levels and their dopamine.

00:43:16.750 --> 00:43:28.220 James Swanson’s iPad: and that we do need socialization. And it's not the same in video. If you're on a work. Zoom, it's not the same as actually being in the room, or even with your therapist.

00:43:28.220 --> 00:43:46.829 James Swanson’s iPad: They're finding that we are. We're because we've done everything remotely or not, everything. We're doing more things. We're also losing that day to day, social in person contact which is having another mental health effect on people. So we have to be aware of the changes are compounding each other. Yes.

00:43:47.590 --> 00:43:59.040 Frank R. Harrison: right? Right? Well, we're about to take another break. But cerebral wind over a twitch, made another comment, and then I will close with that, and we'll address it when we return. He says.

00:43:59.300 --> 00:44:23.370 Frank R. Harrison: not only would the above help more younger representation. But people like Mitch Mcconnell, who was very obviously not doing too hot in the health department right now, if his last 2 public appearances are anything to go by would be out of Congress to receive the health care they need to relax in their later years. The irony in that comment is that it combines

00:44:23.370 --> 00:44:34.239 Frank R. Harrison: mental health and neurological health, because when looking at his moments on camera, I couldn't tell that they were strokes or seizures or

00:44:34.660 --> 00:44:53.150 Frank R. Harrison: I think t tb, I or Ti M. Or III forgot the acronym tia, thank you. But at the same time you have a lot of people, a lot of his advocates saying that he's recovering from a fall that he took months ago. But

00:44:53.580 --> 00:45:13.889 Frank R. Harrison: I'm sure there are. There are neurons that are short circuiting after a concussion like that. And well, just explore that comment a little bit more when we return. So please stay tuned everyone right here on Frank about health, both on talk radio, dot, Nyc and on twitch, Youtube, Facebook and Linkedin. We will be back in a few.

00:47:17.030 --> 00:47:25.930 Frank R. Harrison: hey, everybody, and welcome back. And again I'd like to thank cerebral Wynn for making the commentary help our conversation over the last 45 min.

00:47:26.030 --> 00:47:50.210 Frank R. Harrison: I don't know who you really are other than by your handle, but I could see that you're really on point with regards to both the neurological and mental health issues of our society today, COVID-19 climate change and other social issues that we were talking about during this last 45 min have definitely impacted us all. Regardless of what your neurological health is.

00:47:50.210 --> 00:48:09.469 Frank R. Harrison: I'm coming from the place of epilepsy. But the average everyday person is dealing with their own mental health issues as a result of what it was like to be disconnected from each other. We're not wired for that. We're not programmed for that. However, I think, with technology and the innovation that it has taken us

00:48:09.490 --> 00:48:32.350 Frank R. Harrison: towards, as well as a lot of the commentary that James had discussed in terms of what we can do to close that loop and making sure that the next 5 years, for example, is, gonna be more seamless, or is going to be leading us in the right direction. And hopefully, we don't make the same mistakes that we did 10 years ago or 5 years ago.

00:48:32.520 --> 00:48:34.910 Frank R. Harrison: but it, in my view.

00:48:35.310 --> 00:48:43.030 Frank R. Harrison: it's learning to live in the moment which I don't feel most people do again. That's just my opinion.

00:48:43.070 --> 00:49:02.849 Frank R. Harrison: Cerebral wind. We were talking about Mitch Mcconnell and the whole abstract nature of his condition. Yes, everyone could say he's too old to still be in Congress. He should leave office in 2,026, or 2,025, I think, is his next election. I'm not even sure which. 2,026 rather

00:49:03.050 --> 00:49:19.160 Frank R. Harrison: But it's interesting how we don't know what the neurological problem he's dealing with, and I don't think we're ever going to get a concrete assessment. There is something called hipaa, so even his doctors would not disclose that if it's considered private information.

00:49:19.190 --> 00:49:28.529 Frank R. Harrison: we can all infer what it is, and of course we all have the power in our voting to make a decision. If we want someone to be reelected or in office again.

00:49:28.610 --> 00:49:36.640 Frank R. Harrison: But the thing is is that if you compare that to individuals who literally have been in worse mental condition.

00:49:37.240 --> 00:49:45.219 Frank R. Harrison: who knows? Maybe Mitch Mcconnell should not be leaving office. But then, again, that's hearsay, and that's perceptual, and that's up to the individual voter.

00:49:45.360 --> 00:49:51.360 Frank R. Harrison: I think all of us are to be judged on how we connect with each other, whether it's virtually

00:49:51.410 --> 00:50:09.739 Frank R. Harrison: or in real time in person. If we all are dealing with a form of collective Ptsd that has to be made aware to everyone upfront, so that when you are being as transparent as possible, people can look at the deficits in your thinking, or the stress or anxiety levels that you have.

00:50:09.740 --> 00:50:22.350 Frank R. Harrison: and keep that in mind, and not construe you, or perceive you as not professional enough or not significant enough in whatever you are communicating with the people in the room at that time.

00:50:22.990 --> 00:50:43.979 Frank R. Harrison: This is my way of, you know, closing out the show by reminding everybody out there that over the last 45 min, by educating, by by James and I having a conversation and educating all of you out there about the financial and social impacts that our society has gone through, due to the pandemic and climate change and artificial intelligence.

00:50:44.400 --> 00:51:00.339 Frank R. Harrison: Take ownership over your perceptions, your mind, your education, your knowledge, your your people, that you can turn to, as I said, get a therapist if you just want to do reality testing and move forward with your life.

00:51:00.390 --> 00:51:26.700 Frank R. Harrison: It's in your hands. It's your life you have the power to do so. That's never really communicated except on one in one situation, but I'm hoping that both James and I were able to bring awareness to all of you out there that you have the choice, and you have the power to use whatever weaknesses you have and turn them into strengths going forward. The other thing that I wanted to do, because if you remember, on last week's show

00:51:27.020 --> 00:51:52.050 Frank R. Harrison: I had shown episodes of shows that featured Dr. Mira Branku and also featured Maurice Elkovich with the mori method, but you couldn't hear sound, and the reason why I wanna give them their due and play it again is because one of them will be my guest next week, and one of them has their podcast tomorrow. So let me just do them the respect, and then

00:51:52.070 --> 00:52:01.449 Frank R. Harrison: also wrap up with, you know things that I, along with other members of talk radio, Nyc. Will be involved in over the coming weeks.

00:52:01.560 --> 00:52:04.539 Frank R. Harrison: So first appearance will be

00:52:18.390 --> 00:52:31.049 everyone can be trained unless you have some physical issue with your brain. But like 99% of the people getting trained every day. Anyway. it's just a different.

00:52:31.150 --> 00:52:47.410 So the idea is that I expose you to these frequencies. Your brain, then the idea is that your brain follows these frequencies, and hopefully the re-establishment of the connection brings the reestablishment of natural processes that will clean it out.

00:52:47.800 --> 00:52:55.690 That's the that's my, that's my. you know, way of doing things. Now that being said.

00:52:57.060 --> 00:53:08.639 these are bone conduction headphones. They don't. In the year they go on one way they go into that little flushy area over top of the or the bone.

00:53:08.830 --> 00:53:26.040 and they vibrate more than the speaker. because everything is vibration. No one's hearing you or I speak, Frank. what's happening is, and if everyone knows where their speakers are on their computers or their phones. Put your finger over while I'm talking now, and you'll feel vibration

00:53:26.470 --> 00:53:37.169 right? That's what talk is. It's vibration, that's what any sound is, it's vibration. And that vibration gets interpreted by the brain as sound. What we call sound.

00:53:37.700 --> 00:53:38.679 So be

00:53:47.650 --> 00:53:58.909 Frank R. Harrison: okay. And there was also another reason why I wanted to show that again. I am wearing those very headphones right now, and I just realized that when I took them off you could still hear me

00:53:59.030 --> 00:54:09.899 Frank R. Harrison: now. I could tell you, in having my conversation with James over the last 45 min, and hearing him crisp and clear without them being in my ear.

00:54:09.970 --> 00:54:29.109 Frank R. Harrison: I felt that this conversation was not only extremely educational, but also brought to me some insights that I didn't already know. I believe that what Mori said is true, that whenever you are you dealing with mental and neurological problems, especially when recovering from what we've

00:54:29.130 --> 00:54:39.979 Frank R. Harrison: just live through having this kind of adaption in the way you communicate virtually, or even the way you hear music, your music, or have a phone call on your on your handset

00:54:40.150 --> 00:54:46.050 Frank R. Harrison: is actually going to create a calm within your system, so you can learn to live in the moment.

00:54:46.090 --> 00:55:14.600 Frank R. Harrison: If those of you who saw that episode on Frank about health. A couple months ago it was actually regarding my cousin, who's been now diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, and he was saying his sound files can be readily available to any of you out there to listen to the vibration that can help the amyloid proteins in your brain, reduce in nature and hopefully minimize the amount of potential dementia or Alzheimer's disease that you can get in your later years.

00:55:14.600 --> 00:55:28.520 Frank R. Harrison: They also help with people who have insomnia from sleeping. They help in boosting mood in case you're depressed. They also might. Although I don't know this for certain, they might also minimize the chance of epileptic seizures.

00:55:28.640 --> 00:55:44.429 Frank R. Harrison: They also create positive confidence and elevation of happiness and other kinds of things. It's a whole library of samples that Maury has provided to me. So if any of you out there are looking for samples. Please email me

00:55:44.620 --> 00:55:57.510 Frank R. Harrison: at Frank R. Harrison,, and I will get them to you right away, especially if you've seen this kind of commercial on this episode of Frank about health. In addition.

00:55:57.740 --> 00:56:06.680 Frank R. Harrison: these headphones, you have to get them on Amazon Com. That does not come with the program. Overall. I see I'm about 2 min to end.

00:56:06.680 --> 00:56:29.410 Frank R. Harrison: so I will show the other sound bite, and then I will say farewell to you, James, for for giving us your education and your knowledge about the impacts. But remember, everyone. Tomorrow is tomorrow's Friday, and our slate of shows begins at 100'clock with Tommy D. And philanthropy and focus at 11. It's

00:56:29.570 --> 00:56:46.750 Frank R. Harrison: always Friday with Steve Fry at 12 noon. It's intangify with Matthew Asbell, and then at one Pm. It's the hard skills with Dr. Mira Brandu. And this is exactly what she said on the show where that I played back last week.

00:56:58.190 --> 00:57:15.939 the the best organizations have already found and already know the research that is out there about the bottom line outcomes. When you have a more diverse workforce, and when you support them, you know appropriately.

00:57:16.070 --> 00:57:36.469 and when you recruit for a more diverse workplace and when you have the right policies in place and structure in place to support them, which is that they do better than all other organizations. 20 better, often for for some of the best organizations that can do this right. And so you know. Ii think

00:57:36.620 --> 00:57:49.829 ultimately. And they also know that workers at this point have a choice. They can work where they feel they are most supported. And

00:57:49.920 --> 00:58:02.080 people are starting to walk away with their feet from organizations that that do not support them and do not create a healthy work. Environment.

00:58:02.090 --> 00:58:03.270 And we're

00:58:09.980 --> 00:58:21.250 Frank R. Harrison: I have seen all of her episodes so far she literally is the perfect way to end this particular show. Listening to the hard skills is a new way to improve on your mental health.

00:58:21.410 --> 00:58:50.370 Frank R. Harrison: Possibly, if you have a neurological issue, diversity in the workplace that she refers to is disability focused or neurologically focused as well as gender focused. But at the same time we are all dealing with differences in our culture and in our society. After the COVID-19 pandemic dealing with climate change, the ongoing uncertainty happening in 2,023, with the rest of 23 into 24. Also, there is a program that I will be launching

00:58:50.500 --> 00:59:04.100 Frank R. Harrison: around November, December, right here on Frank, about health that is going to raise funds for the people of Maui more on that over the next 9 weeks. James, do you have any comments I think I took over this whole segment.

00:59:04.280 --> 00:59:29.040 James Swanson’s iPad: No, I'd like to end with. It would be easy. Since we've talked about AI taking jobs and pandemics and climate change and neurological problems. But it would be easy to fall into despair and not do anything 6 miles from where I live right now where I'm talking to you. The Mrna vaccine and breakthroughs occurred just 3 years ago

00:59:29.200 --> 00:59:32.209 James Swanson’s iPad: that are attacking the covid

00:59:32.380 --> 00:59:45.140 James Swanson’s iPad: worldwide. Save millions of lives worldwide changes happening. The unemployment rate in the Us. Among young blacks is now below the unemployment rate of young males. White males

00:59:45.220 --> 00:59:49.839 James Swanson’s iPad: change is happening. There's hope out there. Don't give up and live in the moment.
