The United States is experiencing an adolescent mental health crisis. Experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to the Surgeon General are stressing the urgent need to address the mental health needs of children and teens. The pandemic focused attention on this issue as young people dealt with isolation, the uncertainty of lockdown and grief over the death of loved ones. But while the pandemic exacerbated the problem, it has been building for years. We speak with Judith Warner, a journalist and author, to find out how we got to this point, and what can be done to help kids now. Warner's most recent piece, "We Have Essentially Turned a Blind Eye to Our Own Children for Decades," appears in The Washington Post Magazine.This episode deals with suicide.

The corporate media lied that the riots across America during the summer of 2020 essentially were "fiery, but mostly peaceful." Americans, however, watched in horror as places such as Portland, Seattle, and Kenosha, Wisconsin, burned while radical leftists swarmed the streets.Through it all, though, one journalist braved the mobs.Townhall's Julio Rosas spent much of 2020 moving around the country, capturing footage of rioters as they looted stores, fought police, and, of course, burned buildings.Rosas is the author of the new book "Fiery (But Mostly Peaceful): The 2020 Riots and the Gaslighting of America."Rosas joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss his book and reveal the truth that the media won't tell you about the riots.

Nearly 1 million people in the United States have died of covid-19, and the toll is growing among vaccinated people as the virus gets harder and harder to dodge. Today on Post Reports, what we can learn from looking at vaccinated deaths.Read more:According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, vaccinated people made up a shocking 42 percent of covid deaths in January and February during the peak of the omicron surge, compared with 23 percent during delta's surge in September. Vaccines are still highly effective at preventing illness and death. But as more and more highly contagious variants arise, it becomes harder for elderly people, the immunocompromised and those whose vaccines are wearing off to avoid infection.Health reporter Fenit Nirappil wanted to dispel the myth that only unvaccinated people are dying of covid — and he wanted to put names and faces to some of the hundreds of thousands of people who died this past winter. Today on Post Reports, a look at what happened during the winter surge, and what we can learn from it as the virus continues to mutate.

One of the best consistent sources of real estate leads is your centers of influence and past client list. On today's podcast, Tim and Julie Harris will help you to create and expand your centers of influence and past client list so that it will become a consistent incredibly profitable source of REFERRAL FEE FREE real estate leads. Remember, it is incredibly important that you understand the most powerful form of contacting someone is PROACTIVELY.  Proactive communication:  - Video call. - A phone call. - Face to face.  Passive Communication: - SMS/ Text. - Email. - Drip campaigns. - Watch only videos. etc.  Tip: Most people will deprioritize passive digital communication in favor of face-to-face or direct calls. Think about your own behavior, you chat with someone at the gym you remember that conversation....our brains are hard-wired towards person to person, face to face, voice to voice communication.  Tip: You can reinforce proactive communication with passive but you can't replace proactive communication with passive.  Step #1: Be of service Inflation, interest rates, war, and fear-filled media seem to be everywhere. Most people don't know how to emotionally filter fear from their mindsets. Your mission is to contact your centers of influence and past with energy and enthusiasm and give them great news about the value of their home.  Hint: Using this script will result in a very high level of appreciation directed towards you. Your call to them sharing with them the value of their home could be the best news they have heard in a long time. Mentally and emotionally prepare yourself for their appreciation and not rejection.  "Hi, this is Tim Harris with EXP Realty....so listen, I am getting a ton of folks expressing concerns, and fears about the economy and housing market. I am calling all of my friends, family...people I know, love and care for....to give them the real bottom-line update of their home's value so they don't have to worry....I have this month's update for you now!.....oh, and the best part is that it's all great news!" Next, give them an update. You can simply give them the average year-over-year appreciation rate. "Mr. Owner, in the last 12 months homes in your market have increased by 20%! WOW, congratulations.

2010 does not seem that long ago. It's hard to believe we're at Monitor Mondays broadcast No. 500 since then.But then again, let's look at all we've seen change. Medicare started out with a one-midnight expectation for inpatient reimbursement. Then the Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) moved in, showed us all the errors of our ways, and demonstrated that unrestrained denials could overwhelm the appeal system.Then we got the two-midnight rule, which, oddly enough, seemed to make sense. It carved off a bunch of inpatient stays, but also curtailed denials. Then we saw the phase out of the inpatient-only list. But wait – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) reversed course and decided not only to keep the inpatient-only list, but to add stuff back on to it. The one constant since 2010, via more than 500 live broadcasts,has been Monitor Mondays, bringing cutting-edge analysis of regulatory changes and providing reliable information for you to meet payor challenges. We're looking forward to another 500 episodes. And we're sure the payors will help us with new material.Additional segments to be included in this landmark broadcast will include the following:The RAC Report: Healthcare attorney Knicole Emanuel, partner at the law firm of Practus, will report the latest news about auditors, including the Recovery Auditors (RAs).Monday Focus: Mary Beth Pace, vice president of care management at Trinity Health, will report on outpatient status for those who have undergone surgery.Risky Business: Healthcare attorney David Glaser, shareholder in the law offices of Fredrikson & Bryon, will join the broadcast with his trademark segment.Monday Rounds: Dr. Andrew Markiewitz, substituting for Dr. Ronald Hirsch, will make his Monday Rounds.Legislative Update: Former CMS official Matthew Albright, now chief legislative affairs officer for Zelis, will report on current healthcare legislation.

This Podcast Is Episode Number 470, And It's About How To Balance Profit Centers And Cost Centers In Your Construction Company Success in operating a profitable construction business is all about maintaining the proper balance of control over both The Profit Centers and The Cost Centers. If either one gets too powerful and is allowed to run your construction company, it can cause more damage than good.   The definition of a Non-Profit Construction Company is one that tries to fix its weaknesses and continues making the same mistakes repeatedly, expecting a different result and continues to struggle until the owner lays down and dies from over-work and exhaustion.   A Highly Profitable Construction Company builds on its strengths and core competencies and continues innovating, growing, and responding to changes in its environment.    It's Not Rocket Science; It's A Lot Harder Than That! Profit Centers Most construction companies earn most of their profits from less than four different project types or Profit Centers. Residential Remodel Contractors Have Four Main Profit Centers: Kitchen Remodels Bath Remodels Additions Whole House Remodels Commercial Tenant Improvement Contractors Have Three Main Profit Centers: Commercial Service Work New Installation Whole Space Remodel Service And Repair Contractors Have Three Main Profit Centers: Service Work New Installation Remove And Replace New House Builders Have Two Main Profit Centers: Spec Homes Custom Homes Every construction company has strengths and weaknesses, which means there are particular types of projects they consistently earn lots of money. And there are some types of projects that they always lose lots of money doing. The answer is found in that gold mine called QuickBooks Job Costing Reports and QuickBooks Job Profitability Reports. These reports provide you with a treasure map to see which profit centers your particular construction company makes the most money in and which ones you lose the most. Do more of the ones that make you money and fewer of the ones you lose money on. I will give you a hint; you may not like it, you may stop reading and leave angry; In most of the research we have done for our construction clients, we have discovered the concept of Leveling applies not just to whom you spend time with but to who refers jobs to you! Cost Centers They all share the same three Cost Centers, Marketing - Accounting - Production (MAP) Marketing Is The Number One Cost Center One current client or customer is worth more than all of your prospects combined. All contractors need existing customers and new ones to survive and thrive. The 80-20 Rule for contractors can guide your marketing dollars where they will do the most good. Understand and document your target market demographic and psychographic profile. Focus 100% of your marketing on your target market and forget everyone else. Identify the top 20% of your customers that generally generate 80% of your net profit.  Identify the top 20% of the goods or services you sell 80% of your revenue. A good rule of thumb to grow sales is to budget 5% to 10% of gross sales on marketing. Anything less is like winking at a pretty girl without her knowing you are doing it. Relying 100% on word of mouth and referrals keeps contractors poor and broke. Accounting Is The Number Two Cost Center Successful, highly paid contractors understand and use reliable QuickBooks Financial Reports and Job Costing Reports to know: Which jobs they are equipped to do and make a handsome profit on because it is one of their primary to bid on and pursue Usually, contractors who understand this concept earn the bulk of the profits in the construction industry. For what it is worth, "There is a Hall of Justice; however, there is no Hall of Fairness." Production is the number three Cost Center This is where all your hard work pays off. At this point, you have some basic operation manuals in place for your field and office employees. It is the document that answers the same questions you will be asked hundreds of times. It is the Wikipedia of your company. "This is Who We Are, and How Things Are Done Here." Now you have a road map to success, and all you have left is to assemble the tools, equipment, and employees, set up your trucks or vans, and work! The reason is simple. A contractor focusing on finding and optimizing profit centers will have a much more difficult job than someone overseeing a division that is not classified as a profit center. A profit center manager will have to increase sales by generating additional revenue and decreasing costs (as a percentage of income), much like an entrepreneur would have to do in their own independent business. On the other hand, a cost center manager only has to worry about staying within budget. (A cost center is a department that is important to the overall success of a company, but its contribution to revenues and profits can be only incrementally measured. A cost center is an area that typically runs red ink in upfront losses but will result in a much richer company if managed correctly; think of the research division of a major pharmaceutical corporation that spends billions developing new drug treatments without selling a single pill for years). If the pipeline were to dry up and the cost center shut down, the company would soon find a shadow of its former self. Yet, it is a cost center and not a profit center that is likely to find itself at the top of a list for recessionary layoffs. Many businesses are tempted to treat all divisions as cost centers instead of profit centers. This can be a horrible mistake because if managers are rewarded simply for cutting costs, they will not make sufficient reinvestment in a business to grow profitably in the future. Hence, you eventually end up with outdated equipment, facilities, and staff and your customers are likely to go elsewhere because their needs aren't being met. On the other hand, a profit center approach blends the need for current cash with the desire to grow earnings in the future, making a manager accountable for the long-term health of a business. The legendary management consultant and thinker Peter Drucker created the term profit center in the 1940s. He subsequently asserted that the term profit center is a misnomer that leads managers to focus on the wrong overall priorities, insisting that everything is a cost center. By focusing only on the absolute profit of a division, factors such as return on capital, opportunity cost, efficient use of resources, and relative returns are ignored to the detriment of the stockholder or owner. Final thoughts A holistic Business Process Management Strategy (BPM) is the only way to optimize profit and cost centers.

Ardy says that Seqster is the first company to make the idea work.Dave asks why interoperability is so hard to do. It's because lab data is different from wearable data, which is different from data from your doctor, which is different from data from your dentist, and so on. All your data needs to be extracted and keyed in such a way it can be cross referenced.But putting it all together isn't enough. You must also think about the patient's experience. “How do you connect the dots quickly and how do you visualize this data?"The data needs to be easy for both patients and providers to access and read. "What are they going to do with my data?”You're already giving your doctor and other providers access to your data. But you're not really in control of it from that point on. This year, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services interoperability rules stated that every single patient must have access to their healthcare data. Seqster wants to put the patient in control.Dave follows up by asking what is being done with all this data? Who is using it and how?It's mostly clinical and decentralized trials, Ardy says. By using these data sets, both the cost and the time required to complete trials and develop new pharmaceuticals and therapies are vastly reduced.  Imagine what happens when you can collect a million patients' data in an hour versus 18 months and then look at them all in one place? Ardy says we get more accurate information which results in better and faster development of new medicines and vaccines. Breaking down the silos that contain health data allows for a bigger picture of health for all of us.With enough data, from enough patients, and with the right funding, Ardy thinks cancer is a problem we can solve. Dave wonders if health data could be like being an organ donor. Could we mark a box on a form and agree to donate our health data to science after our deaths?Listen to this episode to learn more about: The problems around siloed health data and his solutionHow to address privacy concerns around healthcare dataArdy's personal journey that brought him to this fieldWhy Big Pharma isn't evilBill Gates's advice to Ardy on getting Seqster to scaleThe decade of biological revolutionThe business model to make this work

Gen. Paul E. Funk II, CG, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. (U.S. Army photo) General Paul E. Funk II assumed duties as the 17th Commanding General, United States Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), on June 21, 2019. As TRADOC commander, Gen. Funk is responsible for 32 Army schools organized under 10 Centers of Excellence that recruit, train, and educate more than 750,000 Soldiers and service members annually. Gen. Funk was born at Fort Hood and graduated from Fort Knox High School. He was commissioned an Armor Officer through ROTC upon graduation from Montana State University. Gen. Funk has commanded at every level, Company through Corps; his combat and operational experience includes six deployments in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Inherent Resolve. Gen. Funk holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in speech communications, from Montana State University, and a Master of Science degree in administration, from Central Michigan University. He is a graduate of the Armor Basic Officer Leaders and Advanced Courses, the Command and General Staff College, and completed his Senior Service College as a fellow at the Institute of Advanced Technology, University of Texas at Austin. In today’s interview, Gen. Funk addresses how the Army is modernizing doctrine given the Operational Environment, what are the challenges facing our all-volunteer force, what the Army can observe and learn from the Russia-Ukraine conflict, and how it is adapting to the changing character of warfare. The following bullet points highlight some of the key insights from our interview: The all-volunteer force is at risk.Demographic trends show that the population of individuals qualified for recruitment is diminishing. Finding the “Secret Sauce” that motivates people to serve and stay in the Army will be vital to ensuring the Nation’s Senior Service remains an effective and capable force. Professionalizing the U.S. military gave the United States a quarter century of global dominance. At its core, it prioritized the Soldier – a mission that should still be emphasized today. Though the character of war is changing, it remains, in essence, a human endeavor. Today, prioritizing the Soldier must be done holistically – nutrition, sleep, and education will all contribute to mission success. Education is the best tool to prepare our Soldiers, and should be prioritized at every echelon.Strong doctrine can help form successful training programs and modernize the Soldier to out-think our adversary. Such education should also teach ‘disciplined disobedience,’ enabling Soldier-Innovators to adapt creatively to ensure mission success.

The pandemic posed new challenges for patients and providers during pregnancy and childbirth.  Pregnant people are at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19, especially if they are unvaccinated. More than two years after the start of the pandemic, health care professionals have protocols in place to address COVID transmission risks and to treat parents and newborns who have COVID. In Minnesota and across the U.S., though, there are historic health problems that have yet to be solved. Over the past couple of years, the pandemic has highlighted racial health disparities and large gaps in access to care. And there are new questions about legal rights to reproductive health care, which could complicate and worsen those gaps. Data from the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control, and the National Institutes of Health indicates that Black women are more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications than white women, and to experience medical conditions like preeclampsia. Black women are more likely to experience preterm labor and birth, which can lead to medical complications for newborns. On Wednesday, MPR News host Angela Davis spoke with health care experts about how the pandemic has shaped pregnancy and childbirth. They also discussed new research in racial health disparities, how racism contributes to poorer health, and how anticipated restrictions in abortion care could affect reproductive health outcomes. Guests:  Rachel Hardeman, PhD, MPH is a tenured Associate Professor in the Division of Health Policy & Management at the University of Minnesota's School of Public Health, the Blue Cross Endowed Professor in Health and Racial Equity, and the Founding Director of the Center for Antiracism Research for Health Equity.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released the hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) Proposed Rule for short- and long-term acute-care hospitals. The Proposed Rule not only updates the Medicare approach to Medicare-Severity DRGs (MS-DRGs) reimbursement, but also advocates for the President's executive orders addressing quality, inequities, and outcomes in healthcare.  While there are no new MS-DRGs, minimal changes to the MS-DRG algorithms, and another one-year delay to implementing a comprehensive complications and comorbidities (CCs) and major CCs (MCCs) restructuring, proposed four years ago, CMS proposes 10 new Inpatient Quality Reporting measures, such as Hospital Commitment to Health Equity, Screening for Social Drivers of Health, Screen Positive Rate for Social Drivers of Health, the Cesarean Birth Electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM), a Severe Obstetric Complications eCQM, a Hospital-Harm/Opioid-Related Adverse Events eCQM, the Global Malnutrition Composite Score eCQM, and others that certainly will have clinical documentation integrity (CDI) and ICD-10-CM/PCS coding implications.  During the next live edition of Talk-Ten-Tuesdays, James S. Kennedy, MD, president of CDIMD, will briefly outline which of these warrant the immediate attention of ICD-10-CM/PCS-oriented physicians, providers, coders, and CDI specialists, who are being asked to formulate and submit comments prior to CMS's June 17 deadline. The live broadcast will also feature these other segments:Coding Report: Laurie Johnson, senior healthcare consultant with Revenue Cycle Solutions, LLC, will report on the latest coding news. Talk Law: Knicole Emanuel, Partner with Practus, will continue with the broadcast's newest segment.  RegWatch: Stanley Nachimson, former CMS career professional-turned-well-known healthcare IT authority, will report on the latest regulatory news coming out of Washington, D.C. News Desk: John Zelem, MD, FACS, founder and CEO for Streamline Solutions Consulting, will anchor the Talk-Ten-Tuesdays News Desk. Point of View: Susan Gatehouse, a guest cohost who will be substituting for Dr. Erica Remer, will report on payor strategies that should be implemented to mitigate the already long road to payment.

An estimated 3 out of 4 U.S. children and more than half of all adults have been infected with COVID-19, according to a report released on Tuesday, April 26 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But a Mayo Clinic expert says more information is needed to get the complete picture. "This was a convenient sample. In other words, people who were having blood drawn for other reasons were tested,"explains Dr. Gregory Poland, head of Mayo Clinic's Vaccine Research Group. "That does not reflect the full population or differences by race or geographic location. And the detection of antibodies does not necessarily mean that you are protected from infection. So, there's a lot of nuance around understanding that headline." The research study looked at more than 200,000 blood samples and found that signs of past infection rose dramatically during the omicron surge between December 2021 and February.Other COVID-19 news this week includes a push to make treatments more available, the rising incidence of new omicron subvariants, and changes in mask recommendations. Dr. Poland cautions that COVID-19 is still present and encourages wearing a mask in crowded spaces, even when there isn't a requirement to do so."If only one of us is wearing a mask and the other one isn't and is infected, you still have pretty high protection — but not the same level of protection as if both of us wearing one," says Dr. Poland. "So, it's it is not futile to be the only one wearing a mask. In fact, I think it sends a message."On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Poland discusses the latest COVID-19 news and answers listener questions.

His story is a glimpse into what likely occurred with thousands of COVID patients and is now occurring with other patients. Scott also believes the fact that his daughter had Down syndrome played a significant role in the hospital's decision to mark her for death. You can find more about her story at OurAmazingGrace.net.

For years now, pain has been the leading cause of disability worldwide, affecting more than 50 million Americans annually. This isn't the kind of pain you endure when you trip onto the pavement, scab, bruise and heal. It's the persistent gnawing, aching, throbbing that happens over a long period of time. This is chronic pain. One of the most powerful and effective forms of treatment for pain is the safe use of opioids. Opioids in combination with other therapies have allowed those hindered by pain to live full and vibrant lives, but the stigma around opioid use was exacerbated in 2016 due to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the CDC, that both seriously discouraged doctors from prescribing these drugs and also over attributed the prescription of them as the cause of addiction and overdose. While opioids are not a one-size fits all pain reliever, the rollback on prescriptions has disproportionately impacted people with disabilities, people of color, women, and incarcerated folks. Kate Nicholson, founder of the National Pain Advocacy Center, believes now is the time to course-correct. Pain relief, in her view, is a civil right.
