DEFINITION: Eisoptrophobia  is the fear of mirrors or, more specifically, of seeing your own reflection in a mirror. Looking into a mirror can cause people with eisoptrophobia shame or distress.

The term is derived from the Greek “eis” and “optikos”. Even though the sufferers know their fear is irrational, they experience excessive anxiety when they look into the mirror.

ASSESSMENT: Your thoughts are appreciated.

My Pragmatic Philosophy of Education

It is NOT the Boyer Model

[By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA]

The Boyer Model of Education and Scholarship

OK – I may subscribe to the Boyer Model but with several specific personal variations which I will keep propriety and not disclose here. But, I will discuss my teaching pragmatism, below.

Definition

Boyer’s Model of scholarship and education is an academic model advocating expansion of the traditional definition of scholarship and research into four types of scholarship. It was introduced in 1990 by Ernest Boyer.

According to Boyer, traditional research, or the scholarship of discovery, had been the center of academic life and crucial to an institution’s advancement but it needed to be broadened and made more flexible to include not only the new social and environmental challenges beyond the campus but also the reality of contemporary life.

His vision was to change the research mission of universities by introducing the idea that scholarship needed to be redefined.

Podcasts: WHAT IS FREE-MARKET “RENT-SEEKING” BEHAVIOR IN HEALTHCARE?

What About “Rent-Seeking” in Banking and Financial Services?

By Dr. David E. Marcinko, MBA

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Rent-Seeking is a public choice, and economics, theory that involves methods to increase one’s share of existing wealth without creating new wealth [no added value].

Rent-Seeking results in reduced economic efficiency through misallocation of resources, reduced wealth-creation, lost government revenue, heightened income inequality, and potential national decline.

AbbVie: The Economic Recession Index?

The BOTOX Predictor Index?

By Staff Reporters

***

***

It’s looking more than likely that we’ll see a recession in the next year, and Americans are preparing themselves by taking steps like delaying major purchases, allocating more of their income to savings, and staying in jobs they don’t love. Another thing they’re not doing? Getting Botox. And that’s bad news for AbbVie; according to Neal Freyman of Morning Brew.

AbbVie, one of the biggest drug manufacturers in the US, brought Botox into its medical aesthetics portfolio—which also includes the popular dermal filler Juvederm—in 2020, when it bought rival drugmaker Allergan for $63 billion. AbbVie CEO Richard Gonzalez said during the company’s Oct. 28 earnings call that the company expects the aesthetics business to take a hard hit in 2023 as recession fears cause consumers to be more cautious with their spending.

“Based on all the data we’ve been observing, especially in the US, with both the consumer-confidence index and real personal consumption expenditures trending down and continued high inflation, these factors are putting pressure on consumer’s discretionary spending,” Gonzalez said.

AbbVie lowered its 2022 full-year forecast for its aesthetics business by $600 million, down to $5.3 billion. After the earnings call, AbbVie’s stock fell 4.3%. Through the third quarter of 2022, Botox has brought in $1.97 billion for the aesthetics business. The third quarter saw $637 million in cosmetic Botox sales, down from an expected $640 million. Gonzalez said he doesn’t think the hit on sales will last long, though.

“As consumer confidence improves, we would once again expect the market growth to accelerate. Our aesthetics portfolio experienced a rapid and sustained recovery following the 2008, 2009 recession,” Gonzalez said.

But Botox also faces a new competitor, called Daxxify, which just got FDA approval in September. Made by Revance Therapeutics, the drug may last longer: In clinical trials, Daxxify injections lasted six to nine months, while Botox injections typically last three months.

Happy Thanksgiving Day 2022

Forget about inflation and the $125 dollar turkey this year.

Try a Test-Tube Turkey, Instead? That’ll Be $34,000

  Last year, Paul Mozdziak gave thanks that people are finally paying attention to his big idea: he wants to grow turkey meat in 5,000-gallon tanks.

An increasing number of companies are trying to grow other kinds of meat in the lab, but Mozdziak happens to “find a lot of beauty in turkeys.” His approach uses stem cells from a biopsy of turkey breast, which are grown in a warm broth of glucose and amino acids to build up muscle fibers. The potential is huge: theoretically, a single stem cell could undergo 75 generations of division in three months, forming enough muscle to manufacture 20 trillion turkey nuggets.

But such such efficiencies are yet to be met. Currently, a turkey-sized lump of white meat would require around $34,000 worth of growth serum. At Target, you can pick up a respectable frozen bird for $30-35. But the latter are intensively farmed. If Mozdziak can scale up production, as well as tweaking fat and protein ratios to make his turkey tasty, he could even win over some vegetarians at Thanksgiving.
