What is CHROMETOPHOBIA?

***

A great question to ponder during National Financial Planning Month!

About the “FEAR OF MONEY”

By Charles Patrick Davis, MD, PhD

Fear of money: An abnormal and persistent fear of money. Sufferers experience undue anxiety even though they realize their fear is irrational. They worry that they might mismanage money or that money might live up to its reputation as “the root of all evil.” Perhaps they remember well the ill fortune that befell the mythical King Midas. His wish that everything he touched be turned to gold was fulfilled, and even his food was transformed into gold.

The fear of money is termed chrometophobia or chrematophobia, from the Greek “chrimata” (money) and “phobos” (fear). The “chrome” in “chrometophobia” may also be related to the Greek word “chroma” (color) because of the brilliant colors of ancient coins — for example, gold, silver, bronze and copper.

What is Techno SCAM-BAITING?

BY ANONYMOUS

SPONSOR: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

CMP logo

Scam-Baiting Behind the Scenes

The most basic form of scambaiting sets out to waste a scammer’s time. At a minimum, scambaiters attempt to make scammers answer countless questions or perform pointless and random tasks. By keeping a scammer busy, scambaiters claim they’re preventing the scammer from defrauding a real victim.

Scambaiting may also be conducted with a specific purpose in mind. Sometimes scambaiters attempt to obtain an offender’s bank account information, for instance, which they then report to a financial institution. But there are other, less benevolent motives in the scambaiting community.

Thousands of scambaiters are organised on the 419eater forum, which describes itself as the “largest scambaiting community on earth”, with over 1.7 million forum threads. The forum was first established in 2003 to tackle the growing issue of 419 emails – a scam that promises people huge sums of cash in return for a small upfront fee.

419eater provides a particularly interesting case study because members are incentivised and rewarded for their scambaits through a unique system of icons, regarded as trophies, that they can obtain in their profile’s signature lines.

Jeff Bezos is allegedly investing in Altos Labs, a biological reprogramming tech company currently looking into a variety of methods that could help reverse the ageing process,

Bezos is said to have a fairly long-standing interest in longevity research. But although Altos Labs has so far managed to recruit some impressive names in the biological reprogramming sector, as well as some pretty big investors, its research still needs a lot of work before it can ever be applied to humans.

ORAL HEALTH AND EQUITY

BY NIHCM

INFO-GRAPHIC
Gum disease remains one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the United States with 46% of adults over 30 showing symptoms. Although significant improvements have been made to improve oral health in America, many people still experience barriers to preventive or essential dental care.

Black Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans, as well as low-income populations, children and pregnant women are at greater risk of oral health diseases. The disparities experienced by these populations have only been exacerbated by the pandemic.

How vaccine-induced immunity stacks up against natural immunity after an infection?

By Ivan Gazit, Roei Shlezinger, Galit Perez, Roni Lotan, Asaf Peretz, Amir Ben-Tov, Dani Cohen, Khitam Muhsen, Gabriel Chodick, Tal Patalon

***

Experts advise people who’ve had COVID-19 to get vaccinated. Still, natural immunity seems to provide stronger, more lasting protection than vaccines alone.

And, it’s a staggering number: Nearly 39 million Americans have had confirmed coronavirus infections – almost 12% of the population.

A spate of new research suggests that natural infection can offer powerful long-term protection against the coronavirus, but that immunity isn’t guaranteed. So researchers still recommend a full vaccine course to lower the risk of reinfection for people who’ve had COVID-19 before.

Genomic Study Points to Natural Origin of COVID-19 – NIH Director's Blog

Here’s how to understand your immunity if you’ve had COVID-19.

PODCAST: What Exactly is a Human Sneeze?

All About “STERNUTATION”

Courtesy: www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

A Silly Question Until Covid-19!

A “Sternutation” is a sudden involuntary expulsion of air from the lungs through the nose and mouth due to irritation of the nasal passage.

LINK: https://www.amazon.com/Dictionary-Health-Insurance-Managed-Care/dp/0826149944/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275315485&sr=1-4

A sneeze is not always related to an underlying medical condition. It may be caused by:

  • Nasal irritants (dust, pepper, pollen etc)
  • Sudden exposure to bright light
  • Breathing cold air
  • Object struck in nose.

Self-treatment helpful in some less- serious cases include:

  • Change the furnace or air conditioner filters
  • Do not have pets in the house if allergic to animal dander
  • Wash linens in very hot water (at least 130 degrees Fahrenheit) to kill dust mites
  • Vacuum and dust frequently
  • Use a good humidifier especially at night, if the air is too dry
  • Drink plenty of water if suffering from flu/common cold.

See a doctor if you notice the following :

  • Fever greater than 101.3 F (38.5 C)
  • Fever lasting five days or more or returning after a fever- free period
  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing
  • Severe sore throat, headache or sinus pain
  • Allergy does not resolves in a few days.

See a doctor immediately if you notice:

  • Sneezing is continuous
  • Causes severe ear pain, drowsiness.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP Rising Again!

Try (or learn about) Entrepreneurship

BY DR. DAVID EDWARD MARCINKO MBA CMP®

One of the greatest things about the virtual economy is the expanded opportunity for people to branch out on their own and create something using their own expertise. Related to this is the growing societal desire to have more free time and a more balanced, efficient life overall. 

In fact, years ago when I was in business school, I learned that during a recession when jobs were sparse – folks would either go back to school to re-engineer and re-educate OR start their own business.

Today – If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we need to be able to pivot when circumstances call for it. In the years ahead, there will be a premium on flexibility, portability, and improvisation; knowing how to earn income outside the traditional employer-employee relationship will continue to be an especially valuable skill. 

entrepreneur

ASSESSMENT: So, if you are a physician, nurse, medical professional or financial advisor in the healthcare space, think about what you’re naturally good at (or at least interested in), and determine if there’s an opportunity to monetize it in some way on your own. Your career might thank you for it!

This Post-Independence Day Federal Holiday

BY DR. DAVID E. MARCINKO MBA

INVITATION: https://medicalexecutivepost.com/dr-david-marcinkos-

Good Monday Morning and Happy July 5th.

I recently learned from Bloomberg editor David Shipley that the American citizenship test wasn’t standardized until the 1950s, and before that aspiring citizens were quizzed on their understanding of American history by a judge. It was … pretty hard.

Here are several questions you might’ve been asked to become an American citizen in 1944. How would you do? Answers at the bottom of this post.

  • Which of the following states seceded during the Civil War? Florida, Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky*
  • Which of these cities has not been a capital of the US? NYC, Boston, Princeton, Philadelphia
  • Where must all bills intended to raise revenue originate? Popular referendum, the House, the Senate, the president
  • Which was not one of the original 13 colonies? South Carolina, Massachusetts, Georgia, Maine.

HAVE A GREAT MONDAY OFF

And, thank you if working today.

Citizenship test: 1) Florida seceded 2) Boston wasn’t a capital 3) Bills to raise revenue must originate in the House 4) Maine wasn’t an original colony

Homeless Youth in the USA


A Vulnerable PopulationInfographic

By NIHCM Foundation

Each year, an estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness in the United States. Every night, thousands of young people experience homelessness without a parent or guardian – going to sleep without the support and stability of a family or a home.

Among homeless youth, 40% identify as LGBTQ and they have more than twice the risk of being homeless than their heterosexual peers. This infographic explores youth homelessness, risk factors for becoming homeless, the health toll associated with being homeless, and what can be done to address this crisis.

By Michel Accad, MD

EDITOR’S NOTE: Dr. Accad practices internal medicine and cardiology in San Francisco.

I wish to make one clarification and one prediction regarding employed physicians.

The clarification is this:  There is a common misconception that if healthcare operated under free market conditions, it would primarily be a cottage industry of solo practices and of small physician-owned hospitals.  Such operations would not develop the capabilities of large healthcare entities that we commonly associate with central planning.

“Buy Now – Pay Later” Changed Retail Consumerism

EDITOR’S PRIVILEGE: The Pandemic and Going Mask-Less

EDITOR’S POINT OF PRIVILEGE

This week, for the first time in a year, I took a walk without wearing a mask. It was all going great until I saw a woman walking her dog approach me. She was wearing a mask, and my body instinctively moved to cross the street to give her space. It made me realize that we’ve been living in fear of other humans, which is pretty sad.

Pandemic-era habits die hard, but I’m confident we can once again re-wire our brains to view other people not as biological vectors for disease, but as … people, just with germs.

So, here’s to hoping this summer, we’ll learn to come together as quickly as we learned to distance.

On Bill Gates, Doctors and Divorce – Oh My!

OF COMMON CAUSE WITH TOO MANY PHYSICIANS?

DEM avatar

Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP®

SPONSORED: http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

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.

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.”

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.
