    Good morning and Happy Sunday everyone. I slept in this morning and went out for my walk just before sunrise. Got a nice view of a large red fox crossing the road right in front of me, so I didn’t feel so bad about my late start. Have an awesome day!

              😂😂 Since you have knowledge and insight, what are your thoughts has Dear Leader gone Belly Up or is he hiding from the Chinese Virus? I hear his sister makes him look like a puppy dog…..

                His family does have coronary issues and his reputation for living like a hog in a Walmart is legendary. Then there’s always the outside chance that someone may have poisoned him, his government is almost a treacherous as the Democrats.

                I’d like to think that the high-ranking Chinese medical group going to ‘assist’ in his treatment will contain at least one government official who’ll be talking with his sister to see how compliant to Chinese strategic needs she’ll be. I’m also betting that the Chinese are in contact with their POCs in the NK government and military and working on contingency plans. If everything falls into place I wouldn’t be surprised to see Dear Leader be the guest of honor in a lavish state funeral and his sister take over…if the NK military agrees.

                    I know I’d have to fight the urge to say “Horro Kitty’ when I saw her. I’m not sure if he’s dead or if there’s some big game going on. His personal armored train’s been spotted but no one’s sure if he’s with it. I’m wondering if he had a bad case of Chinese coronavirus

                    Who knows, could be gamesmanship could be a goner…. if Horro Kitty is seen and looks happy I’d lean toward he is a goner. If he is dead I wonder if the MSM will mourn him like they did the Muslim terrorists…. no I don’t really…he’s President Trump’s second best friend right after Vlad in the mind of the MSM so they will say mean girl things about Kim.

                    If he were dead I’d expect to see some signs that a transfer of power was imminent.

                    In the People’s Hermit Kingdom the next-in-line just doesn’t walk into the Offal Office, say ‘Hey guys, I’m here!’ change the rugs and drapes and take over. The successor will have to secure the unwavering support of the military
                    and political elites – note how Dear Fluffy killed off a number of both whom he distrusted over the years – and then get the chair and start that list of who gets downsized next.

                    There’s usually some movement in the military – what kinds tells you lots – and changes in the activities of principal political figures and, I’m sure someone’s checking on this, the nuclear and rocker corps’ movements.

                    I caught the very end of President Trump’s presser. He was asked about the gargoyle and answered along the line of “Yes I know what is going on with Kim, no I cannot say what it is, I wish him well, you’ll find out fairly soon.”

                    Also a bit later a reporter tried to quote Kim saying “Last Friday Kim Un said….” and POTUS cut her off and said something along the line of ..”He said last Friday ?? Did you say Kim Un said something on Friday? No he didn’t ….he wasn’t saying anything …”

    Absolutely gorgeous morning, if we were in the city we’d pack up and go to the park! Oh wait, we own a park. Never mind.

      Funny but as most folks out here live on large tracts of property no one thinks of parks, we all gots grass and trees. As the ‘Big City’ about 20 miles south done growed the has a new city park that used to be a hospital – they bulldozed it and turned it into a park with a bandshell and walking trail.

      Just down the street from the new park is a much smaller one with a gazebo in it, one of those ones built back in the late 1800s where folks would gather on a weekend or holiday for a concert and picnic.

      It’s interesting to see the evolution of the town. It used to be a logging and agricultural town where New Orleans people with money would buy a summer place to come to when the heat and humidity of the city was unbearable. The city south of the small river that splits the town was the main section and still retains some of its 1800s buildings but on the north side of the river it’s all 60s and newer. There are even some 20-or-more acres ‘estates’, mostly buried in trees and brush now, that used to be the suburban digs of the monied folk.

      As the NOLA folks continue to infiltrate the area the older section of town is slowly being transformed too, one more Katrina and we’ll be swamped, but we get to enjoy it in the meantime.

    Cedars-Sinai-Developed ‘Healight’ Medical Device Platform Technology Being Studied as a Potential First-in-Class COVID-19 Treatment

    Conference Call Scheduled for Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 4:30 pm ET

    ENGLEWOOD, CO / ACCESSWIRE / April 20, 2020 / Aytu BioScience, Inc. (NASDAQ:AYTU) (the “Company”), a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on commercializing novel products that address significant patient needs announced today that it has signed an exclusive worldwide license from Cedars-Sinai to develop and commercialize the Healight Platform Technology (“Healight”). This medical device technology platform, discovered and developed by scientists at Cedars-Sinai, is being studied as a potential first-in-class treatment for coronavirus and other respiratory infections.

    The company will host a live conference call and webcast Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. ET. Conference call details are provided at the end of this press release.

    Led by Mark Pimentel, MD, the research team of the Medically Associated Science and Technology (MAST) Program at Cedars-Sinai has been developing the patent-pending Healight platform since 2016 and has produced a growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating pre-clinical safety and effectiveness of the technology as an antiviral and antibacterial treatment. The Healight technology employs proprietary methods of administering intermittent ultraviolet (UV) A light via a novel endotracheal medical device. Pre-clinical findings indicate the technology’s significant impact on eradicating a wide range of viruses and bacteria, inclusive of coronavirus. The data have been the basis of discussions with the FDA for a near-term path to enable human use for the potential treatment of coronavirus in intubated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). Beyond the initial pursuit of a coronavirus ICU indication, additional data suggest broader clinical applications for the technology across a range of viral and bacterial pathogens. This includes bacteria implicated in ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP).

      People think when they go into the hospital that they’re a patient when in reality they’re a prospective cash cow. Your doctor decides on treatments but every action is guided by billing codes and certain treatments are more profit producing than others.

      You’re going to have a hard time replacing ventilators until the hospital billing folks and the insurance carriers can come to an agreement on the replacement therapy’s profitability, lase surgery comes immediately to mind. I’m looking at knee reconstruction/replacement surgery and the local branch of my big Hospital, Inc complex doesn’t have the robotic capability. They still have a surgeon who opens your leg like a hero sandwich, chisels and grinds freestyle and post-op stuffs you into a hospital bed for a few days with all of the attendant costs of care including docs dropping in to say high and billing $150 or more for the visit. Down the street’s a surgical hospital’s that has a doc who uses a robot system that used CATs/MRIs of your knee, the doc places markers on your leg and the robot calculates the exact areas it needs to remove and place the insert on. Reports on the NIH site attest to its safety, accuracy and far less invasiveness while saying most patients go home after a one night stay at the hospital.

      I’m getting flack from my Hospital, Inc who doesn’t have this system, though their corporate Hq 75 miles away does, telling me this is all hype and marketing. I’m betting that the day after, if they do, get the system they’ll do a 180 in a heartbeat. They got the hype and marketing right though, just not in the right context.

      If each new medical advancement came with a guaranteed profit statement we’d be nose deep in new stuff, it’s not selling the benefits to the patient, it’s about selling the benefits to the hospital’s bottom line. See what too many years of dealing with insurance companies and hospitals does to you?

    Blessed Sunday morning everyone. Today is the day that our Governor determined we could begin to emerge from our in-home quarantines. WooHoo!!!

    Within two short days the landscape here has gone from absolute brown to a beautiful lush green. The trees and bushes are budding out, tulips are beginning to poke out of the ground and the grass seed I planted last fall has begun to grow. Yea….Spring has arrived!
