On Bill Gates, Doctors and Divorce – Oh My!

OF COMMON CAUSE WITH TOO MANY PHYSICIANS?

Bill Gates has been a business hero for me for the past 35 years. I even met him, once briefly back in the day. So, the marital union of the Microsoft Founder and Melinda French seemed perfect, and their marriage stood the test of time as it neared the three-decade mark, a rare feat in the world of A-list couples.

Sadly, when they announced their split on Twitter this week, many were shocked, even heartbroken. People reflected on their own marriages and wondered how they could make it work if the Gates’ could not.

And collectively, we found we cared about the split — a lot. 

But, what about physician colleagues and divorce?

Do we doctors have some common cause with Bill and Melinda?

CDC Mask Update

President Biden Talks Up Benefits of Vaccines After New Mask Guidance

By Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA CMP®

It is time to practice smiling with your teeth again, because the CDC just updated its mask-wearing guidance yesterday from “mostly always” to “mostly just inside.” The agency said that fully vaccinated folks can do the following activities sans masks:

  • Dine outside with non-roommates
  • Go on walks, hikes, or bike rides alone or with household members
  • Attend small, outdoor events, even if some attendees haven’t been vaccinated.

Why now?

29% of Americans are fully vaccinated, and almost 43% have received 1+ dose. Plus, researchers’ understanding of Covid-19 has come a long way since every Amazon package was treated like an Area 51 special delivery, and public health experts say it’s rare for the virus to spread outdoors.

Chenue Her's tweet - "Helpful and easy to follow graphic from the CDC on  the new mask and vaccination guidelines. " - Trendsmap

MIT Experts Speak: https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/other/six-foot-social-distancing-rule-misses-bigger-risks-mit-experts-say/ar-BB1g7bx1?li=BBnb7Kz

Vaccines Need a Marketing Refresh

The pace of vaccinations has slowed down in the US, and the Biden administration hopes that FOMO from seeing vaccinated friends tandem-biking (as friends do) will spur the un-jabbed to act.

Assessment: In the words of President Biden, “For those who haven’t gotten their vaccine yet…this is another great reason to go get vaccinated now.”

Debts and Settlement is Due

The Ides of March was a day in the Roman calendar that corresponds to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts.

In 44 BC, it became notorious as the date of the assassination of Julius Caesar which made the Ides of March a turning point in Roman history.

RED CROSS Day History

RED CROSS DAY

On this day in 1863, Henry Dunant founded the Red Cross, which would go onto receive the Nobel Peace Prize three times.

During the Battle of Solferino in the Franco-Austrian war, Swiss businessman Dunant was shocked to witness tens of thousands dead or wounded left on the field after just one day of fighting.

After this experience, on 17 February 1863, he decided to form the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva Switzerland with four other Swiss businessmen to take care of casualties and prisoners of war. In the following year, the first Geneva Convention was adopted, “for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the Field.”

The First World War was an enormous challenge for the organisation. At the outbreak of the war in 1914 medical staff from all over the world gathered to take care of the many wounded. One of them was the young Ernest Hemingway (awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature 1954), employed as an ambulance driver on the Austrian-Italian front. The experience later inspired him to write the novel ‘Farewell to Arms’.

***

Henry Dunant was awarded the first ever Nobel Peace Prize in 1901 for his humanitarian work.

The organization he founded received the prize three times.

A Shift in Perception Transforms Reality

Reality Check Ahead

By Vitaliy Katsenelson CFA,

“When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love …”

-Marcus Aurelius

***

As I look at 2020, I have very conflicting feelings. On one hand, the year was horribly tragic for many people who lost loved ones and businesses. My heart goes out to the nearly two million people worldwide who have lost their lives to COVID and their grieving families, and to the tens of millions in this country now suffering from economic hardship.

On the other hand, the worst that many people, including me, have suffered from this virus, has been annoying inconvenience. Thankfully, almost all my relatives and friends are in this category. Yes, we cannot see our extended family and friends; yes, we have not been able to travel or go to concerts or sporting events. The events of last year led me to an important personal, philosophical breakthrough. This was the year that I embraced Stoic philosophy.

Parkinson’s Law of Triviality in Time Management, Economics and Finance

The Attention a Problem Gets is Inverse to its’ Importance

Courtesy: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA

Historian Cyril Parkinson’s wrote in his book Parkinson’s Law,

“The time spent on any item of the agenda will be in inverse proportion to the sum [of money] involved.”

EXAMPLE: Parkinson described a fictional finance committee with three tasks: approval of a $10 million nuclear reactor, $400 for an employee bike shed, and $20 for employee refreshments in the break room.

The committee approves the $10 million nuclear reactor immediately, because the number is too big to contextualize, alternatives are too daunting to consider, and no one on the committee is an expert in nuclear power.

Bike Shed Effect: The bike shed gets considerably more debate. Committee members argue whether a bike rack would suffice and whether a shed should be wood or aluminum, because they have some experience working with those materials at home.

Employee refreshments take up two-thirds of the debate, because everyone has a strong opinion on what’s the best coffee, the best cookies, the best chips, etc.

Absurd: The world is filled with these absurdities. In personal finance, Ramit Sethi recently said we should stop asking $3 questions (should I buy coffee?) and ask more $30,000 questions (should I buy a smaller home?). Most people don’t, because it’s hard and intimidating. In any given moment the easiest way to deal with a big problem is to ignore it and fill your time thinking about a smaller one.

The “Cytokine” Storm [hypercytokinemia]?

Hypercytokinemia and Covid-19

By staff reporters

A cytokine storm, also called hypercytokinemia, is a physiological reaction in humans and other animals in which the innate immune system causes an uncontrolled and excessive release of pro-inflammatory signaling molecules called cytokines.

Normally, cytokines are part of the body’s immune response to infection, but their sudden release in large quantities can cause multisystem organ failure and death.

Cytokine storms can be caused by a number of infectious and non-infectious etiologies, especially viral respiratory infections such as H5N1 influenza, SARS-CoV-1, and SARS-CoV-2. Other causative agents include the Epstein-Barr virus, cytomegalovirus, and group A streptococcus, and non-infectious conditions such as graft-versus-host disease.

The “Halloween Indicator” [Investment Strategy]

Join Our Mailing List

What it is – How it works?

[By Dr. Marcinko and staff reporters]

Sell in May and go away is an investment strategy for stocks based on a theory (sometimes known as the Halloween indicator) that the period from November to April inclusive has significantly stronger growth on average than the other months.

***

thumbnail_IMG_0533_edit1

“DANCE OF DEATH”

[Copyright 2018 iMBA Inc., All rights reserved. USA]

***

The Strategy

In such strategies, stocks are sold at the start of May and the proceeds held in cash (e.g. a money market fund); stocks are bought again in the autumn, typically around Halloween. “Sell in May” can be characterised as the belief that it is better to avoid holding stock during the summer period.

Though this seasonality is often mentioned informally, it has largely been ignored in academic circles (perhaps being assumed to be a mere superstition). Nonetheless analysis by Bouman and Jacobsen (2002) shows that the effect has indeed occurred in 36 out of 37 countries examined, and since the 17th century (1694) in the United Kingdom; it is strongest in Europe. While the effect may reflect a failure of the efficient-market hypothesis, alternatives exist such as small sample size or time variation in expected stock market returns.

***

Causes the Effect

Although it’s not clear what causes the effect, what’s most interesting is that it shows that stock market returns in many countries during the period May–October are systematically negative or lower than the short-term interest rate, which also goes against the efficient-market hypothesis. Stock market returns should not be predictably lower than the short-term interest rate (risk free rate).

Popular media often refer to this market wisdom in the month of May, claiming that in the six months to come things will be different and the pattern will not show.

However, as the effect has been strongly present in most developed markets (including the United States, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom and most European countries) in the last decade – especially May–October 2009 – these claims are often proved wrong.

That said, between April 30 and October 30, 2009, the FTSE 100 gained 20% (from 4,189.59 to 5,044.55)

Academics

The effect has largely been ignored in academic circles. The idea contradicts much established theory, especially the efficient-market hypothesis.

Maberly and Pierce extended the data to April 2003. They also tested the strategy for April 1982 through April 2003 except for two months, October 1987 and August 1998. They found that it doesn’t work well in the time period April 1982–September 1987 plus November 1987–July 1998 plus September 1998–April 2003.[7] Other regression models using the same data but controlling for extreme outliers have found the Halloween effect to still be significant.[8]

“Sell in May and go away” has persisted as a profitable market-timing strategy for stock investors, according to a follow-up study by Andrade, Chhaochharia and Fuerst (2012). They find that the Sell-in-May seasonal pattern persists after the end of Bouman and Jacobsen’s (2002) sample. This is important in showing that the Halloween effect is not a statistical fluke detected by data mining. Strikingly, in the 1998–2012 sample on average November–April returns are larger than May–October returns in all 37 markets they study. On average, the difference is equal to about 10% percentage points. Also strikingly, the magnitude of the difference is the same in Bouman and Jacobsen’s (2002) and in the out-of-sample analysis of Andrade, Chhaochharia and Fuerst (2012). Further backtesting by Mebane Faber has shown this effect has been in place since 1950.

On ZOOM Fatigue!

ZOOM IN – ZOOM OUT

By: Staff reporters

“Lately, Zoom meetings have been hitting a nerve with CEOs”.

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon says there’s no vital “creative combustion” happening in virtual settings. American Airlines CEO Doug Parker finds Zoom meetings awful.

And Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls them transactional, where “30 minutes into your first video meeting in the morning … you’re fatigued.

“What we as human beings need, want, seek … is human contact,” Nadella says.

Now members of the C-suite have gone full boomerang on Zoom meetings. After finding them awesome and productive at first, they’re now questioning how much they really achieve and are suggesting they lead to a sterile work culture lacking in imagination.

Dimon is particularly worried about how working from home has affected JPMorgan’s younger employees. He told analysts that productivity had dipped, especially on Mondays and Fridays. Dimon says bringing people back to the office is paramount to fostering creativity.

The CDC has finally acknowledged that the coronavirus can be airborne

The CDC has finally acknowledged that the coronavirus can be airborne 

The news: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its guidelines to acknowledge that the coronavirus can be spread by tiny particles that linger in the air. The agency said it took the decision due to the mounting evidence that people with covid-19 can infect people even if they are more than six feet away, or shortly after the infected person left the area. These cases all occurred in poorly ventilated and enclosed spaces, and often involved activities that cause heavier breathing, like singing or exercise. 

The significance: Evidence that airborne transmission is occurring has been mounting for months. The WHO still has not recognized airborne transmission as a significant factor in the pandemic and the CDC’s slowness to acknowledge it has caused frustration among aerosol researchers, some of whom say it is the main route for infections. The CDC maintains it only occurs in “limited, uncommon” circumstances. Airborne transmission has become a topic of fierce contention, partly due to the fact it makes it far riskier to reopen spaces like restaurants, gyms, bars, schools, and offices.

What do we do now? The CDC advises that people stay at least six feet away from others, wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth, frequently wash their hands, clean high-touch surfaces often, and stay home when they are feeling sick. However, the implications of airborne transmission mean the CDC perhaps ought to shift its emphasis and go further, advising people to properly ventilate buildings, limit the number of people indoors at any given time while encouraging them to stay further apart and masked, and try to socialize outdoors where possible. Read the full story.

Deep Tech Startups

Entrepreneurs

By Dr. Jeffery Funk,

All 12 Ex-Unicorn Deep Tech startups are unprofitable and another 20 privately-held #Unicorns appear to be far from profitability.

These 32 include biotech/health (12), AI/Big Data (8), sensors/AVs (4), wearables (3), satellites/space (2), and one for 3D printing, storage, and fuel cells. Of ex-Unicorns, 10 have losses greater than 30% of revenues.

Why are these #deeptech #startups so unprofitable?

My conclusion is fewer #breakthrough #technologies are coming out than decades before and ones coming out are taking longer to successfully commercialize. #AI/#BigData, sensors/#AVs, wearables, satellites, 3D printing, and fuel cells have all been over-hyped, their costs and performance are still disappointing, and their diffusion continues to be slow.

Overall, a successful example of a breakthrough #technology is hard to find since iPhone was introduced in 2007, other than OLEDs and solar cells. Yes AI, #EVs, drones, VR, AR, and IoT are diffusing and thus an analysis in 10 years might come to different conclusions, but for 2010s, there was little to commercialize. #innovation #ipo #ipos #venturecapital #vcs #vc https://lnkd.in/gThUWFR

Nothing is known of their lives except that they suffered martyrdom in Syria during the persecution of the Emperor Diocletian. According to Christian traditions, the twin brothers were born in Arabia and became skilled doctors.

Saladino d’Ascoli, a 15th century Italian physician, claims that the medieval electuary, a pasty mass consisting of a drug mixed with sugar and water or honey suitable for oral administration, known as opopira, a complex compound medicine used to treat diverse maladies including paralysis, was invented by Cosmas and Damian.

During the persecution under Diocletian, Cosmas and Damian were arrested by order of the Prefect of Cilicia, one Lysias who is otherwise unknown, who ordered them under torture to recant. However, according to legend they stayed true to their faith, enduring being hung on a cross, stoned and shot by arrows and finally suffered execution by beheading. Anthimus, Leontius and Euprepius, their younger brothers, who were inseparable from them throughout life, shared in their martyrdom.
