The chain of survival for ACLS is the same as was learned in your BLS class. The beginning steps of the Cardiac Emergency and Stroke chain of survival are the same. Recognizing the symptoms of a cardiac emergency or stroke; Activating an emergency response by calling 9-1-1, or a specialized code team if in the healthcare setting; Rapid assessment including 12 lead ECG for cardiac patients or FAST assessment for suspected stroke emergencies; Provide ALS care and transport to the most appropriate facility; for Early reperfusion. ACLS's timed goals for first medical contact to PCI for STEMI and door-to-needle for ischemic stroke. Areas with strong EMS relationships, well-defined transport protocols, and specialized teams that care for the patient in the hospital have significantly better patient outcomes. The cardiac arrest chain of survival adds: high quality CPR, early defibrillation, and advanced resuscitation as the next critical links followed by post arrest care and recovery. **American Cancer Society (ACS) Fundraiser This is the fourth year that I'm participating in Real Men Wear Pink to increase breast cancer awareness and raise money for the American Cancer Society's life-saving mission.

According to The Verge, sources yesterday had suggested that a vast majority of shareholders were set to approve of the bid, with the required majority being locked in before Tuesday’s meeting. The vote comes as Musk is locked in a legal battle with the social media platform over an attempt to terminate the deal, after Musk sought data that confirmed that the number of Twitter accounts that are automated bot accounts is less than 5 percent. Twitter sued Musk for his attempts to terminate the deal, arguing that Musk created their agreement. The trial is expected to begin in mid-October. This is a developing story, so check back with me tomorrow for more updates: Moving on… https://www.theepochtimes.com/us-inflation-comes-in-worse-than-expected-as-food-shelter-costs-surge_4726956.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport US Inflation Comes in Higher Than Expected as Food, Shelter Costs Surge The U.S. annual inflation rate came in at 8.3 percent in August, higher than the market forecast of 8.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). This is slightly down from the 8.5 percent reading in July. The core inflation rate, which strips the volatile food and energy sectors, also advanced to 6.3 percent last month. This was also higher than the market expectation of 6.1 percent and up from 5.9 percent in July. On a monthly basis, the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.1 percent, while the core CPI surged 0.6 percent. Food and shelter costs contributed to the inflation numbers as they increased 11.4 percent and 6.2 percent, respectively, year-over-year. The energy index eased to 23.8 percent, new vehicles surged 10.1 percent, used cars and trucks jumped 7.8 percent, and apparel edged up 5.1 percent. Transportation services soared 11.3 percent and medical care services swelled 5.6 percent. Within the food index, most items were up on both a year-over-year and month-over-month basis. Bread prices rose 16.2 percent from the same time a year ago, milk soared 17 percent, eggs spiked 39.8 percent, and fruits and vegetables surged 9.4 percent. BLS data further showed that meat was mostly up across the board, with uncooked ground beef up 7.8 percent, chicken jumping 16.6 percent, ham rising 9.2 percent, and pork surging 6.8 percent. On a positive note, airline fares, which were up by about 33 percent year-over-year, fell by 4.6 percent on a monthly basis in August. On the energy front, prices also eased considerably from July to August. Fuel oil slipped 5.9 percent and gasoline declined 10.6 percent. However, electricity prices added 1.5 percent. U.S. stocks reacted to the hot inflation report. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 were down 2.7 percent and 3 percent, respectively, during midday trading on Sept. 13, while the NASDAQ was down 3.85 percent. Financial markets have cheered anytime there is the slightest hint of easing inflationary pressures because investors think this would prompt the Federal Reserve to slow down its pace of rate hikes or to cut interest rates. Central bank officials have repeatedly stated that they do not intend to turn dovish during this tightening cycle until there is clear evidence that inflation is on a downward trend. Fed Chair Jerome Powell spooked financial markets last month when he told the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium that households and businesses need to brace for “some pain.” Just what our economy needed! More pain… Speaking of which… https://www.theepochtimes.com/stocks-tumble-after-inflation-stays-hotter-than-expected_4727580.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Stocks Tumble After Inflation Stays Hotter Than Expected Stocks are tumbling and disappointment is shaking markets worldwide Tuesday, following Wall Street’s realization that inflation isn’t slowing as much as hoped. The S&P 500 sank 2.3 percent in early trading Tuesday, threatening to snap a four-day winning streak. Bond prices also fell sharply, sending their yields higher, after a report showed inflation decelerated to 8.3 percent in August, instead of the 8.1 percent economists expected. The disappointing data means traders are bracing for the Federal Reserve to ultimately raise rates even higher than expected to combat inflation, with all the risks for the economy that entails. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 603 points, or 1.9 percent, to 31,777, as of 9:45 a.m. Eastern time, and the Nasdaq composite dropped 3.1 percent. Almost all of Wall Street came into the day thinking the Fed would hike its key short-term rate by a hefty three-quarters of a percentage point at its meeting next week. But the hope was that inflation was in the midst of quickly falling back to more normal levels after peaking in June at 9.1 percent. The inflation report arrived before trading began on Wall Street, but it sent a thud through markets worldwide. https://www.theepochtimes.com/15000-union-nurses-in-minnesota-walk-out-on-strike-protesting-low-wages-and-understaffing_4725919.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport 15,000 Union Nurses in Minnesota Begin Strike, Citing Low Wages, Understaffing About 15,000 union nurses at 15 hospitals across seven different health systems in Minnesota have walked off the job, protesting understaffing and overwork in what’s believed to be the biggest strike of private-sector nurses in U.S. history. The Minnesota Nurses Association strike, slated to last three days, began at 7 a.m. on Sept. 12. The group’s membership voted last month to authorize a strike. Nurses in the Minneapolis and Duluth areas are complaining about low pay, a dearth of resources, and the inability to care for patients properly, such as running wards without lead nurses, and poor shift-scheduling practices. “I can’t give my patients the care they deserve,” said Chris Rubesch, the vice president of the Minnesota Nurses Association and a nurse at Essentia Health in Duluth, according to The Washington Post. “Call lights go unanswered. Patients should only be waiting for a few seconds or minutes if they’ve soiled themselves or their oxygen came unplugged or they need to go to the bathroom, but that can take 10 minutes or more. Those are things that can’t wait.” At a Sept. 1 news conference, Minnesota Nurses Association President Mary Turner said, “Our health care and our profession are in crisis.” Response From Hospitals While negotiations have been continuing since March, the union decided to proceed with the strike because of the hospitals’ offer of about 10 percent wage increases over three years. The union had asked initially for a 37 percent boost, before settling on 30 percent. A spokesperson for the Twin Cities Hospitals Group called the request “unreasonable, unrealistic, and unaffordable,” according to the Minnesota Reformer. Hospital administrations have hired replacement staff and traveling nurses to keep operations running and bring minimal disruption to patient care. “Nurses have steadfastly refused to go to mediation,” Paul Omodt, a spokesman for the Twin Cities Hospital Group, which represents four hospital systems, told The Washington Post. “Their choice is to strike. This strike is on the nurses.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty.

Work from home (WFH) was found to average 1.5 days a week worldwide, according to the study conducted by a team of international economists and other experts. The study, “Working From Home Around the World,” surveyed full-time workers from 27 nations as of mid-2021 and early 2022. Workers were found to value the option of working from home for two to three days per week so much that they were willing to take a pay cut of 5 percent on average. In the United States, workers were willing to take a 5.7 percent pay cut for remote work options. On average, workers across countries wanted 1.7 work-from-home days per week after the end of the pandemic. In the United States, the mean desired WFH days per week was at 2.1. However, the actual WFH days in the country was 1.6 while employers were only planning to offer 0.8 days for remote work. Overall, 5.26 percent of employees working from home for one or more days per week were willing to quit their job if their employer wanted them to return to onsite work for more than five days. In the United States, this number exceeded 40 percent. In the United States, the risk that city-level fortunes will diverge due to work-from-home models is “more acute” than in other rich nations, the report noted. “In part, because political decisions about the provision of local public goods are more decentralized in the United States, and local fiscal resources are more closely tied to local economic prosperity. These aspects of federalism give rise to more scope for a downward spiral in city-level fiscal resources and urban amenities.” Compared to other countries, the United States also has more location options sharing the same legal system, cultures, language, etc. As such, if a city’s governance were to fail, it is easier to move to another similar but better-performing city, the report stated. Last month, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York released a report showing that many remote working jobs which popped up during the COVID-19 pandemic have remained open and are expected to remain open in the future. https://nypost.com/2022/09/12/michael-irvin-chides-stephen-a-smiths-colin-kaepernick-cowboys-idea/ NFL legend Michael Irvin eviscerates idea of Colin Kaepernick joining Cowboys: 'Let's just stop' The Playmaker was not having it. After Dak Prescott went down for what might be 6-8 weeks with an injury to his throwing thumb, the “First Take” crew was bouncing around ideas on what Dallas should do in the interim. Tyler Huntley was broached, but no one ultimately thought that the Ravens would part with him with Lamar Jackson unsigned. Stephen A. Smith brought up Colin Kaepernick, and Michael Irvin shot the idea down. https://youtu.be/-l0Ao24SpVQ Play 2:35-4:37 Did you notice that Smith tried to back away from the bag of crap that he just lit on fire, and left it for all of us to smell? “Oh no I just had five or so people bring it up to me, so I thought I’d ask!” Yeah nice try buddy, we all know you’re just a puppet trying to keep this conversation going about Kaepernick. Even when Kap has ability, he wasn’t even that good. He was something new in the league when he helped lead the 49ers to the Superbowl against the Ravens all the way back in 2013… but since that season, his numbers fell off a cliff… people clinged to the notion that he was a great qb, all for the sake of pumping up his national anthem protest… Kaepernick hasn’t played in the NFL since 2016, when he kneeled during the national anthem to protest social injustice while a member of the 49ers. Smith has said in the past that former President Donald Trump inflaming this story was revenge on NFL owners for not allowing him to buy the Bills.

These aspects of federalism give rise to more scope for a downward spiral in city-level fiscal resources and urban amenities.” Compared to other countries, the United States also has more location options sharing the same legal system, cultures, language, etc. As such, if a city’s governance were to fail, it is easier to move to another similar but better-performing city, the report stated. Last month, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York released a report showing that many remote working jobs which popped up during the COVID-19 pandemic have remained open and are expected to remain open in the future. https://nypost.com/2022/09/12/michael-irvin-chides-stephen-a-smiths-colin-kaepernick-cowboys-idea/ NFL legend Michael Irvin eviscerates idea of Colin Kaepernick joining Cowboys: 'Let's just stop' The Playmaker was not having it.

According to The Verge, sources yesterday had suggested that a vast majority of shareholders were set to approve of the bid, with the required majority being locked in before Tuesday’s meeting. The vote comes as Musk is locked in a legal battle with the social media platform over an attempt to terminate the deal, after Musk sought data that confirmed that the number of Twitter accounts that are automated bot accounts is less than 5 percent. Twitter sued Musk for his attempts to terminate the deal, arguing that Musk created their agreement. The trial is expected to begin in mid-October. This is a developing story, so check back with me tomorrow for more updates: Moving on… https://www.theepochtimes.com/us-inflation-comes-in-worse-than-expected-as-food-shelter-costs-surge_4726956.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport US Inflation Comes in Higher Than Expected as Food, Shelter Costs Surge The U.S. annual inflation rate came in at 8.3 percent in August, higher than the market forecast of 8.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). This is slightly down from the 8.5 percent reading in July. The core inflation rate, which strips the volatile food and energy sectors, also advanced to 6.3 percent last month. This was also higher than the market expectation of 6.1 percent and up from 5.9 percent in July. On a monthly basis, the consumer price index (CPI) rose 0.1 percent, while the core CPI surged 0.6 percent. Food and shelter costs contributed to the inflation numbers as they increased 11.4 percent and 6.2 percent, respectively, year-over-year. The energy index eased to 23.8 percent, new vehicles surged 10.1 percent, used cars and trucks jumped 7.8 percent, and apparel edged up 5.1 percent. Transportation services soared 11.3 percent and medical care services swelled 5.6 percent. Within the food index, most items were up on both a year-over-year and month-over-month basis. Bread prices rose 16.2 percent from the same time a year ago, milk soared 17 percent, eggs spiked 39.8 percent, and fruits and vegetables surged 9.4 percent. BLS data further showed that meat was mostly up across the board, with uncooked ground beef up 7.8 percent, chicken jumping 16.6 percent, ham rising 9.2 percent, and pork surging 6.8 percent. On a positive note, airline fares, which were up by about 33 percent year-over-year, fell by 4.6 percent on a monthly basis in August. On the energy front, prices also eased considerably from July to August. Fuel oil slipped 5.9 percent and gasoline declined 10.6 percent. However, electricity prices added 1.5 percent. U.S. stocks reacted to the hot inflation report. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 were down 2.7 percent and 3 percent, respectively, during midday trading on Sept. 13, while the NASDAQ was down 3.85 percent. Financial markets have cheered anytime there is the slightest hint of easing inflationary pressures because investors think this would prompt the Federal Reserve to slow down its pace of rate hikes or to cut interest rates. Central bank officials have repeatedly stated that they do not intend to turn dovish during this tightening cycle until there is clear evidence that inflation is on a downward trend. Fed Chair Jerome Powell spooked financial markets last month when he told the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium that households and businesses need to brace for “some pain.” Just what our economy needed! More pain… Speaking of which… https://www.theepochtimes.com/stocks-tumble-after-inflation-stays-hotter-than-expected_4727580.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport Stocks Tumble After Inflation Stays Hotter Than Expected Stocks are tumbling and disappointment is shaking markets worldwide Tuesday, following Wall Street’s realization that inflation isn’t slowing as much as hoped. The S&P 500 sank 2.3 percent in early trading Tuesday, threatening to snap a four-day winning streak. Bond prices also fell sharply, sending their yields higher, after a report showed inflation decelerated to 8.3 percent in August, instead of the 8.1 percent economists expected. The disappointing data means traders are bracing for the Federal Reserve to ultimately raise rates even higher than expected to combat inflation, with all the risks for the economy that entails. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 603 points, or 1.9 percent, to 31,777, as of 9:45 a.m. Eastern time, and the Nasdaq composite dropped 3.1 percent. Almost all of Wall Street came into the day thinking the Fed would hike its key short-term rate by a hefty three-quarters of a percentage point at its meeting next week. But the hope was that inflation was in the midst of quickly falling back to more normal levels after peaking in June at 9.1 percent. The inflation report arrived before trading began on Wall Street, but it sent a thud through markets worldwide. https://www.theepochtimes.com/15000-union-nurses-in-minnesota-walk-out-on-strike-protesting-low-wages-and-understaffing_4725919.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=BonginoReport 15,000 Union Nurses in Minnesota Begin Strike, Citing Low Wages, Understaffing About 15,000 union nurses at 15 hospitals across seven different health systems in Minnesota have walked off the job, protesting understaffing and overwork in what’s believed to be the biggest strike of private-sector nurses in U.S. history. The Minnesota Nurses Association strike, slated to last three days, began at 7 a.m. on Sept. 12. The group’s membership voted last month to authorize a strike. Nurses in the Minneapolis and Duluth areas are complaining about low pay, a dearth of resources, and the inability to care for patients properly, such as running wards without lead nurses, and poor shift-scheduling practices. “I can’t give my patients the care they deserve,” said Chris Rubesch, the vice president of the Minnesota Nurses Association and a nurse at Essentia Health in Duluth, according to The Washington Post. “Call lights go unanswered. Patients should only be waiting for a few seconds or minutes if they’ve soiled themselves or their oxygen came unplugged or they need to go to the bathroom, but that can take 10 minutes or more. Those are things that can’t wait.” At a Sept. 1 news conference, Minnesota Nurses Association President Mary Turner said, “Our health care and our profession are in crisis.” Response From Hospitals While negotiations have been continuing since March, the union decided to proceed with the strike because of the hospitals’ offer of about 10 percent wage increases over three years. The union had asked initially for a 37 percent boost, before settling on 30 percent. A spokesperson for the Twin Cities Hospitals Group called the request “unreasonable, unrealistic, and unaffordable,” according to the Minnesota Reformer. Hospital administrations have hired replacement staff and traveling nurses to keep operations running and bring minimal disruption to patient care. “Nurses have steadfastly refused to go to mediation,” Paul Omodt, a spokesman for the Twin Cities Hospital Group, which represents four hospital systems, told The Washington Post. “Their choice is to strike. This strike is on the nurses.” Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty. Free men must remain ever vigilant against tyranny wherever it appears. God has given us the tools of liberty needed to defend the rights He bestowed to us.

Work from home (WFH) was found to average 1.5 days a week worldwide, according to the study conducted by a team of international economists and other experts. The study, “Working From Home Around the World,” surveyed full-time workers from 27 nations as of mid-2021 and early 2022. Workers were found to value the option of working from home for two to three days per week so much that they were willing to take a pay cut of 5 percent on average. In the United States, workers were willing to take a 5.7 percent pay cut for remote work options. On average, workers across countries wanted 1.7 work-from-home days per week after the end of the pandemic. In the United States, the mean desired WFH days per week was at 2.1. However, the actual WFH days in the country was 1.6 while employers were only planning to offer 0.8 days for remote work. Overall, 5.26 percent of employees working from home for one or more days per week were willing to quit their job if their employer wanted them to return to onsite work for more than five days. In the United States, this number exceeded 40 percent. In the United States, the risk that city-level fortunes will diverge due to work-from-home models is “more acute” than in other rich nations, the report noted. “In part, because political decisions about the provision of local public goods are more decentralized in the United States, and local fiscal resources are more closely tied to local economic prosperity.

I hope you all had a restful weekend with your loved ones, so without further adieu, let me remind you about our conference! FLF Conference Plug Do you like Jesus & beer? Then you and your family need to come to the Fight Laugh Feast Conference in Knoxville Tennessee, on October 6-8. The topic of this conference is Lies, Propaganda, storytelling, and the serrated edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government that has rejected God. Christians haven’t been reading their Bibles, so we as a society are more susceptible than ever to satan and his lies. So join us, October 6-8, as we fight, laugh, and feast, with beer & psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, including Pastor Doug Wilson, George Gilder, and Pastor Toby Sumpter, and more… AND, stuff for the kids too, like jumpy castles, and accidental infant baptisms!

Alright, now let’s get to the news! https://reason.com/2022/09/12/americans-spent-more-on-taxes-last-year-than-on-food-health-care-education-and-clothing-combined/ Americans Spent More on Taxes Last Year Than on Food, Health Care, Education, and Clothing Combined Yikes. New consumer spending data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides some sobering perspective on how much Americans are paying in taxes. The data covers consumer spending across a wide variety of categories in 2021. Overall, taxes accounted for about 25 percent of average consumer spending. The BLS measures spending per "consumer unit," which it describes as "either (1) all members of a particular household who are related by blood, marriage, adoption or other legal arrangements; (2) persons living alone or sharing a household with others or living as a roomer in a private home or lodging house or in a permanent living quarters in a hotel or motel, but who is financially independent; or (3) two or more person living together who use their income to make joint expenditure decisions." On average, each "consumer unit" paid more than $16,000 in taxes last year. This outpaces average spending on food, clothing, education, and health care combined. The mean for total spending per unit on health care, food, education, and clothing was $16,721.42. This included an average of $8,289.28 on food, $5,451.61 on health care, $1,226.14 on education, and $1,754.39 on apparel. The mean for total spending per unit on taxes was $16,729.73. This included $8,561.46 in federal income tax, $2,564.14 in state and local income taxes, $2,475.18 in property taxes, $5,565.45 in Social Security deductions, and $105.21 in other taxes, offset by an average stimulus payment of $2,541.71. In addition to this disturbing tidbit, the new BLS data contains a wealth of other information on American spending habits and offers an interesting glimpse at recovery—and inflation—during the second year of the coronavirus pandemic. The highest expenditure category was housing, at an average $22,623.55 per consumer unit (including property taxes). Major spending categories aside from housing, food, health care, education, and clothing included transportation ($10,961.18), utilities/fuels/public services ($4,223.49), entertainment ($3,567.89), household operations ($1,638.42), and personal care products and services ($770.51).

According to local news, DiPrima was considered an up-and-comer in the Georgia force and Sheriff Grady Judd, who ran the sting, said, "If all else fails, he could write a book, 'How to Ruin Your Career in Three Easy Steps.'" The sting operation started on August 29, lasted one week, and was a multi-agency effort led by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PSCO) Vice Unit. Their efforts found and rescued at least two sex trafficking victims. Former cop DiPrima was arrested after he tried to solicit an escort while attending the American Polygraph Association seminar in Orlando on August 31. He thought he was speaking to a sex worker, but was actually talking to an undercover PSCO detective. The Cartersville Police Department said in a press release that DiPrima had resigned Thursday following the department placing him on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/09/12/biden-loosens-tech-export-restrictions-on-china/ Biden Quietly Loosens Tech Export Rules to Chinese Communist Firms Just Days After Huawei Lobbyist’s Brother Joins White House. The White House quietly loosened Trump-era restrictions on the sharing of U.S. technology with firms blacklisted for their ties to the Chinese Communist Party, including the controversial Huawei, The National Pulse can report. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a revision to a Trump-era Export Administration Regulations (EAR) newly authorizing the release of certain technology and software for the alleged purpose of “standards setting and development in standards organizations.” The move, which applies to firms that have been blacklisted by the U.S. government, was advertised as addressing confusion over whether American companies need a license to share “low-level”technology with sanctioned parties. Notably, Huawei Technologies Co. – which was included in the original export ban, as telecommunications firm has extensive links to the Chinese Communist Party – will now be able to receive certain technologies from American companies. Labeled a “national security threat” by the Trump administration and a decades-long Chinese military collaborator by the U.S. Department of Defense, Huawei routinely provides the regime backdoor access to its products, networks, and devices. The State Department has also emphasized that the Chinese Communist Party uses Huawei as an “instrument not only for making money but also for pursuing the Party-State’s agenda and fulfilling its strategic objectives […] deeply enmeshed in Beijing’s system of oppression at home and its increasingly assertive strategic ambitions globally.” The news comes after months of wrangling by Huawei lobbyists, those of whom include leading anti-Trump and pro-Biden individuals, such as Trump impeachment support Stephen Binhak, and the brothers of both Biden advisor Steve Richetti and newly minted Biden climate czar John Podesta.

Ukrainian officials accused retreating Russian forces of launching retaliatory attacks on civilian infrastructure, including a thermal power station in Kharkiv, that the authorities in Kyiv said caused widespread blackouts. "No military facilities, the goal is to deprive people of light & heat," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on Twitter of the attacks. Moscow denies its forces deliberately target civilians. Zelenskiy has described Ukraine's offensive as a potential breakthrough in the six-month-old war, and said the winter could see further territorial gains if Kyiv received more powerful weapons. In the worst defeat for Moscow's forces since they were repelled from the outskirts of the capital Kyiv in March, thousands of Russian soldiers left behind ammunition and equipment as they fled the city of Izium, which they had used as a logistics hub.

Ukrainian officials accused retreating Russian forces of launching retaliatory attacks on civilian infrastructure, including a thermal power station in Kharkiv, that the authorities in Kyiv said caused widespread blackouts. "No military facilities, the goal is to deprive people of light & heat," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy wrote on Twitter of the attacks. Moscow denies its forces deliberately target civilians. Zelenskiy has described Ukraine's offensive as a potential breakthrough in the six-month-old war, and said the winter could see further territorial gains if Kyiv received more powerful weapons. In the worst defeat for Moscow's forces since they were repelled from the outskirts of the capital Kyiv in March, thousands of Russian soldiers left behind ammunition and equipment as they fled the city of Izium, which they had used as a logistics hub.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Tuesday, September 13th, 2022. I hope you all had a restful weekend with your loved ones, so without further adieu, let me remind you about our conference! FLF Conference Plug Do you like Jesus & beer? Then you and your family need to come to the Fight Laugh Feast Conference in Knoxville Tennessee, on October 6-8. The topic of this conference is Lies, Propaganda, storytelling, and the serrated edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government that has rejected God. Christians haven’t been reading their Bibles, so we as a society are more susceptible than ever to satan and his lies. So join us, October 6-8, as we fight, laugh, and feast, with beer & psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, including Pastor Doug Wilson, George Gilder, and Pastor Toby Sumpter, and more… AND, stuff for the kids too, like jumpy castles, and accidental infant baptisms! Sign up to attend with you and yours, or become a vendor at fightlaughfeast.com. Alright, now let’s get to the news! https://reason.com/2022/09/12/americans-spent-more-on-taxes-last-year-than-on-food-health-care-education-and-clothing-combined/ Americans Spent More on Taxes Last Year Than on Food, Health Care, Education, and Clothing Combined Yikes. New consumer spending data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides some sobering perspective on how much Americans are paying in taxes. The data covers consumer spending across a wide variety of categories in 2021. Overall, taxes accounted for about 25 percent of average consumer spending. The BLS measures spending per "consumer unit," which it describes as "either (1) all members of a particular household who are related by blood, marriage, adoption or other legal arrangements; (2) persons living alone or sharing a household with others or living as a roomer in a private home or lodging house or in a permanent living quarters in a hotel or motel, but who is financially independent; or (3) two or more person living together who use their income to make joint expenditure decisions." On average, each "consumer unit" paid more than $16,000 in taxes last year. This outpaces average spending on food, clothing, education, and health care combined. The mean for total spending per unit on health care, food, education, and clothing was $16,721.42. This included an average of $8,289.28 on food, $5,451.61 on health care, $1,226.14 on education, and $1,754.39 on apparel. The mean for total spending per unit on taxes was $16,729.73. This included $8,561.46 in federal income tax, $2,564.14 in state and local income taxes, $2,475.18 in property taxes, $5,565.45 in Social Security deductions, and $105.21 in other taxes, offset by an average stimulus payment of $2,541.71. In addition to this disturbing tidbit, the new BLS data contains a wealth of other information on American spending habits and offers an interesting glimpse at recovery—and inflation—during the second year of the coronavirus pandemic. The highest expenditure category was housing, at an average $22,623.55 per consumer unit (including property taxes). Major spending categories aside from housing, food, health care, education, and clothing included transportation ($10,961.18), utilities/fuels/public services ($4,223.49), entertainment ($3,567.89), household operations ($1,638.42), and personal care products and services ($770.51). A lot of numbers for you guys on that one… moving on: https://thepostmillennial.com/Sex-traffickers-nabbed-in-florida-sting-include-disney-employees-police-deputy?utm_campaign=64487 Sex traffickers nabbed in Florida sting include Disney employees, police deputy A Florida sex trafficking sting known as "Operation Fall Haul II" captured a 160 culprits this week with a list that included several Disney employees, a teacher, and Georgia Deputy Police Chief Jason DiPrima. According to local news, DiPrima was considered an up-and-comer in the Georgia force and Sheriff Grady Judd, who ran the sting, said, "If all else fails, he could write a book, 'How to Ruin Your Career in Three Easy Steps.'" The sting operation started on August 29, lasted one week, and was a multi-agency effort led by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office (PSCO) Vice Unit. Their efforts found and rescued at least two sex trafficking victims. Former cop DiPrima was arrested after he tried to solicit an escort while attending the American Polygraph Association seminar in Orlando on August 31. He thought he was speaking to a sex worker, but was actually talking to an undercover PSCO detective. The Cartersville Police Department said in a press release that DiPrima had resigned Thursday following the department placing him on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. https://thenationalpulse.com/2022/09/12/biden-loosens-tech-export-restrictions-on-china/ Biden Quietly Loosens Tech Export Rules to Chinese Communist Firms Just Days After Huawei Lobbyist’s Brother Joins White House. The White House quietly loosened Trump-era restrictions on the sharing of U.S. technology with firms blacklisted for their ties to the Chinese Communist Party, including the controversial Huawei, The National Pulse can report. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) issued a revision to a Trump-era Export Administration Regulations (EAR) newly authorizing the release of certain technology and software for the alleged purpose of “standards setting and development in standards organizations.” The move, which applies to firms that have been blacklisted by the U.S. government, was advertised as addressing confusion over whether American companies need a license to share “low-level”technology with sanctioned parties. Notably, Huawei Technologies Co. – which was included in the original export ban, as telecommunications firm has extensive links to the Chinese Communist Party – will now be able to receive certain technologies from American companies. Labeled a “national security threat” by the Trump administration and a decades-long Chinese military collaborator by the U.S. Department of Defense, Huawei routinely provides the regime backdoor access to its products, networks, and devices. The State Department has also emphasized that the Chinese Communist Party uses Huawei as an “instrument not only for making money but also for pursuing the Party-State’s agenda and fulfilling its strategic objectives […] deeply enmeshed in Beijing’s system of oppression at home and its increasingly assertive strategic ambitions globally.” The news comes after months of wrangling by Huawei lobbyists, those of whom include leading anti-Trump and pro-Biden individuals, such as Trump impeachment support Stephen Binhak, and the brothers of both Biden advisor Steve Richetti and newly minted Biden climate czar John Podesta.

Hi, it's Linda with CRA today and the CRA Hub. I thought I'd hop back here and give you a quick tip. So many of you have asked "what exactly is BLS (hint, it is the Bureau of Labor Statistics) and how should I use it to support my CRA program?" Well this month in the CRA Hub, we're focusing on CRA exam prep. As you know, it's really important to make sure that we are crossing our T's and dotting our I's and making sure that all of our community development activities are properly documented. Well, this is where the website bls.gov comes in. This website will help you substantiate the creation or retentions of jobs for low and moderate income people. The BLS website is where you can go to create the documentation or the proof, to show your examiners during an exam to substantiate community development loans and activities, as applicable. So let's take a $1.5M community development loan that your bank originated to a restaurant to expand to a new location. You would first document that the borrower is considered a small business and then you will need to document and prove that the majority of the jobs created as a result of your financing would in fact be jobs for low and moderate income individuals.  Given my description so far, you may know you are working towards documenting this community development loan under the economic development hook, right?  So after you document all other aspects of the community development loan and you are down to documenting the creation of jobs for LMI individuals.  So you go to BLS.gov and you search for jobs that typically would be found in a restaurant, like cooks, waiters, bartenders.  I tend to keep two or three, as an example is my backup files for examiners. And then you can drill down to the different geographies within Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). So I recommend getting as close as you can to the geographic location of the business that you are documenting the community development loan for aka “follow the money” to the community development impact.Here is the link to the screen share overview of BLS.gov: https://www.loom.com/share/2ae5b997547343a2b33ce9413db17598You would take these representative jobs and compare the salaries against area median income to make sure these annual salaries fall below the thresholds for a moderate-income person in the area for which the loans proceeds are applied.  I hope this helps you as you continue to mine for community development loans and then also document your CD loans. I often say, if it's not properly document, it didn't really happen!  The “art of the CRA” as I say is to properly document all of your activities to support an efficient review by your examiners and this “pre-work” if you will will also allow you to defend your position with confidence.  CRA Today provides Community Reinvestment Act Training, Professional Development, and a new Certification for CRA professionals.

Being the team leader during a cardiac arrest is challenging.  Using an algorithm helps by standardizing & prioritizing our interventions using an If/Then methodology. Review of BLS steps for determining if rescue breathing or CPR is needed and attaching the AED or defib pads as soon as it arrives at the patient's side. If the patient is in a non-shockable rhythm on the ECG such as PEA or systole, we will go down the right side of the adult cardiac arrest algorithm. If the patient is in a shockable rhythm on the ECG such as V-Fib or V-Tach, we will go down the left side of the adult cardiac arrest algorithm. An example of a code's flow for shockable rhythms where an antiarrhythmic such as Amiodarone or Lidocaine is administered. We will follow the algorithm until the patient has ROSC or we call the code.

Episode #31: The Rise of PAs, NPs, and Non-MDs

Friendly Neighborhood Patient

In the old days, we called them doctors. Now everyone sees a “provider.” Many other professionals from the scribe to the physician assistant complement the doctor. These positions are supposed to make the clinic experience better for all patients. You might have a choice to see a nurse practitioner now or wait longer for your physician. In some places, you may not ever see a doctor again unless your medical condition is complicated or severe. Given how quickly norms change, patients need to ask two questions. Should nurses and physician assistants play a bigger role in medicine? And more importantly, do they deserve the patient's trust? The answers reveal much about why you should care deeply about who's responsible for your health.Titles carry heavy weight in medicine.Doctors of course have been around since ancient times. Nursing as we know it began with Florence Nightingale in the 1800s. Physician assistants, or “PAs,” were a product of the US military in the 1960s. These roles evolved with time. Doctors specialize and then sub-specialize with their interests. Nurses target various patient groups and can practice medicine as well after proper training. PAs can plug themselves into nearly any medical discipline. For today, I'm just going to focus on why nurses and PAs are building a larger foothold in overall patient care. Some economists believe that PAs and nurse practitioners (NPs) should replace all primary and standard care in America so doctors can instead handle the most complex problems. That's a dramatic change some argue is happening as we speak. Before weighing in on that major trend, patients must know the exact roles of their non-doctor providers. Understanding each of these professionals' responsibilities is the first step to questioning if they're doing their job right.You've probably met a registered nurse (RN) at least once. An RN takes many forms, whether it be a midwife, anesthetist, or a practitioner. Most nurses find themselves in broad medical categories like primary care and women's health. NPs can do more tasks than a general RN can. PAs usually specialize by medical discipline as physicians do. Both NPs and PAs have overlapping skills, but their training differs. Nursing school after undergrad focuses more on treating the patient in a given care setting and PA school is centered on treating the disease (similar to traditional med school training). PAs usually have a few years of clinical experience (normally as a medical assistant) post-undergrad before enrolling in a two- to three-year PA school. NPs need a master's degree to become an RN first, then finish a graduate degree and licensing exam. In certain states, NPs can practice independently without doctor oversight. PAs on the other hand legally need physician supervision. To put the education in context, a PA or NP likely spends a maximum or four to five years, including job experience, after undergrad before practicing medicine. A physician spends about eight to 12 years after undergrad (depending on the specialty) before they can see a patient. That's a lot of school. If someone asks you who to trust with your care, it's an easy choice. However, we do not live that kind of a vacuum. Reality has other ideas. As I've said in past episodes, there are only so many doctors to go around while healthcare usage climbs.The differences in providers' training are one thing, but the demand for NPs and PAs in particular keeps rising. Markets are saying their piece—according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of PAs is projected to grow ~30% between 2020 and 2030. For all nurses (RNs, NPs, etc.) the forecast is 45%. Doctors' estimated job growth is sitting at just 3%. I'll link the more detailed BLS data on my page at rushinagalla.substack.com. The largest driver behind these expectations by far is nationwide aging. Chronic diseases like diabetes and heart issues play a role too, but nonetheless, PAs and NPs are necessary to keep up with secular trends bringing about more patients in need.Let's be practical for a bit. When heading to the clinic to deal with a medical issue, you may or may not have a choice in who you see. If you draw a Venn diagram of the tasks that doctors, NPs, and PAs can do, there are several commonalities in the middle. All three of those professionals can do physical exams, make diagnostic assessments, order tests, prescribe meds, and perform routine procedures (e.g. biopsies, injections). Yes, even surgeons have PAs who know how to hold a scalpel. ~19% of PAs pick a surgical sub-specialty. From the patients' viewpoint, these basic clinical skills are everything medicine appears to be. NPs and PAs likely do a few other administrative tasks the physicians don't need to worry about, but you shouldn't get blamed for believing that doctors and other providers are interchangeable for certain responsibilities. In the heat of the moment, two providers (with different degrees) writing the same prescription or doing the same routine procedure appear to deliver equivalent service. It's no coincidence that NPs and PAs command a much lower median salary ($121K and 124K, respectively) than what a physician can claim ($200K+ depending on specialty and practice setting). What you can't visualize are the wide gaps in education and experience unless you have a complex medical issue.So what should you do if there's a choice to wait longer for the doctor or see the NP or PA now? Your condition drives the answer to this question. At the same time, patients should prioritize getting seen rather than waiting for an experienced professional—if your condition is unusual or too complicated for a PA, you'll get referred to a doctor quickly. PAs in particular have been fighting for looser oversight restrictions since the advent of their position. In May 2021, the main PA society changed its name to the American Academy of Physician Associates (rather than ‘assistants'). Doctors weren't exactly pleased with that development. Groups like the policy-focused American Medical Association pushed back, arguing that changing titles will confuse patients. Anti-PA sentiment points out that midlevel providers handling too many patients cause more errors. Pro-PA sentiment suggests instead that doctors can use extender staff to free up time away from routine care and onto the difficult patients. Most state legislatures and regulatory bodies haven't enshrined the new “associate” term. Doctors may be disgruntled, but they're still employing new midlevel staff to handle demand. Market forces are still at play. PAs can exist in any care setting, but ~53% of them are employed at doctors' offices (vs. 47% for nurses).I do not believe patients have to settle for a winner-take-all reality. Patients shouldn't let their doctors be unreachable. But patients shouldn't also toss NPs and PAs to the curb. Both of those midlevel providers share some abilities with the physician, and in most settings, can spend more time with you. Patients are trading medical experience for accessibility. Some people are uncomfortable with that truth, especially because medicine is a field where oversimplification—'patient A has a given disease, takes treatment X and recovers well'—is dangerous. Give PAs and NPs the opportunity to become the modern, first-line PCP to deal with your problems in a timely manner before the doctor steps in. However, use what you learned in this episode to know the limits and bias of each provider you'll meet in your healthcare journey. Physicians with multi-decade careers or brief stints after graduation have adventures of their own. Sometimes their struggles manifest in ugly ways, hurting both themselves and their patients. The next pod will cover the essence of doctor burnout and the role patients like yourself have in helping physicians feel better about their job.

Anyone else feeling irritated by how clinicians love to tell each other what is right or wrong? Ever notice how scripts often don't thoroughly address client preferences or the process of client engagement? Where is the role of autonomy for the client? To remedy our irritation, today we zoom out and get curious about how we make clinical choices, and how we engage with our clients about making those clinical choices. For EMDR clinicians, this can be tricky. Questions may already be coming up for you like: How do we make a shared decision with our clients when we have a protocol, step-by-step process, and/or script that we are to follow to do it right and be effective? Herein lies the balancing act between positive health outcomes and patient autonomy. How and when do we make clinical choices with our clients? How do we follow the script or protocol, and stay client-centered? What's important to the client? How do we triage what is clinically relevant? The questions are important, and the answers feel challenging. Good news: physicians have been researching this for decades. And it's time for us to catch up with the rest of the healthcare literature. Today, as we talk about shared decision making, we realize that we cannot say we are trauma-informed if we are not client-centered. I said what I said. You deserve to have richer conversations with your clients, in consultation, and even in Facebook groups. As we dive into models of shared decision making, get clarity on which shared decision making model you're using when you make clinical choices. By identifying your orientation along the shared decision making spectrum, you'll get to have more productive conversations with your colleagues and clients. And you can finally understand how to make EMDR a client-centered therapy. Perhaps you were also clinically trained in a paternalistic model of shared decision making. I was, and boy did it mess me up. The paternalistic model tells us the rules about EMDR, like talking during Phase 4, what target to start from, and what form of BLS to use. Let's get curious about how to translate the gold of EMDR into the deliberative model of shared decision making so we can serve more clients effectively. What does EMDR in the deliberative model look like? Listen in to find out! --- Want to keep learning with us? Are you ready to get consultation in a way that feels comprehensive and relational?

Yesterday the Bureau of Labor Statistics issued the June CPI numbers. We are now running at an annual inflation rate of 9.1%, up from 8.6% last month. This is the largest 12-month increase since November 1981. The BLS defined the increase as broad-based, with energy, shelter and food being the biggest contributors. Energy The energy index rose 7.5% overall after rising 3.9% in May. gasoline 11.2%, natural gas at 8.2%. Electricity index also rose 1.7%. The energy index overall rose 41.6% for the year, with gas rising Shelter The shelter index increased 0.6% in June, as it did in May. Rent index rose 0.8%, and owner's equivalent rent rose 0.7%. Lodging away from home (hotels and such) actually fell 2.8% in June after a string of increases in recent months. Food The food index rose 1% in June, the sixth consecutive increase of at least 1% in that index. Food away from home rose 0.9%. The only major grocery group to decline in June was the index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs which fell 0.4%. Overall, food at home rose 12.2% over the last 12 months. CPI To review, the bulk of the CPI is made up of Shelter (32%), Commodities (21.2%) like apparel, new/used vehicles, alcohol, tobacco, Food (13.4%), Energy (8.6%), Medical Services (6.8%) and transportation services (5.8%) My main take away is that the longer this elevated inflation continues, the longer it will continue. Anyone not asking for a significant, 8-10% raise from their employer at this point is effectively getting a pay cut. Eventually people are going to take their financial lives in their own hands, and when they do, I think it's going to lead to a wage-price spiral where people get raises, but everything becomes more expensive because everyone is getting raises just to keep up. The Fed now knows it needs to act, and it needs to act quick. So what are the likely results from this higher-than-expected inflation print? It will likely lead the Fed to a 75-100 basis point (fancy way for saying .75% or 1%) federal funds rate hike in at the July FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) meeting. This is pretty significant — the current federal funds rate is 1.5%-1.75% (it's set as a range between an upper limit and a lower limit) so with an increase of 75-100 basis points it would go up to 2.25-2.5% or 2.5-2.75 depending on how aggressive they choose to be. The popular viewpoint at the moment is that the fed will continue tightening until they “break something,” and then they will ease up. A bit of historical context here might be helpful. For the last 20 years we have had both historically low interest rates and quite low inflation. Post financial crisis in 2008 they had many years of 0% rates (which was a first at the time), until 2015. When they tried to raise rates up to 2.5% in the period of time from 2015 to 2019, the hiking cycle was cut short when the economy was showing signs of stress. The Fed has what they call a “dual mandate” which is 1. Stable Prices and 2. Full employment. They really shouldn't be concerned about asset prices (real estate, the stock market, etc.) but they have started to be more and more influenced by the markets. In the covid period, The Fed responded by moving rates back down to zero, by resuming Quantitative Easing, by sending out stimulus checks and increasing the amount of unemployment, pausing student loan payments, and that sort of thing.
