Insulin is expensive. While it costs around 10-13 dollars for manufacturers to produce insulin, big pharma companies are selling it for $250-500 dollars per month. This is because America's warped pharmaceutical market allows three companies, Eli-Lilly, Sanofi, and Novo Nordisk, to dominate the insulin businesses and set insanely high prices for their drugs. Today I am talking to my friend Siara Patel, a freshman at Boston University and a Type 1 Diabetic. We learn about her journey living with Type 1 Diabetes and the economic challenges she and many other Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics face on a daily basis. After my interview with Siara, we will take a deep dive into why the price of insulin has grown so much in the past 20 years and how this life-saving drug has shifted so far way away from its initial altruistic intent. One of the founders of insulin, Canadian scientist Frederick Benting said, “Insulin belongs to the world.” But we seem to be living in reality far away from this statement.

The following is a conversation with John Salka. John began his career in politics in 2001 having spent time on the Brookfield Central school board, Brookfield town supervisor, and county board of supervisors. He chaired a number of key committees including Planning and Economic Development, Mental Health, Social Services, Public Health and served as the vice president of the Board of Health for six years. John oversaw over 40 millions dollars of taxpayers money and his crowning achievement during his tenure was privatizing the public health nursing agency thus saving the taxpayers over a million dollars in the first year of its divestiture. He also chaired the Energy committee and was president of the Madison County Public Utilities Corp. In 2018 John was elected to the New York State Assembly representing the 121st district which encompassed all of Madison, the southern part of Oneida and most of Otsego counties. He served for two terms and due to unconstitutional redistricting he decided not to run for what would have been a third and final term. John is currently the Director of Community Affairs for congressman Brandon Williams of the 22nd congressional district that encompasses all of Onondaga, Madison and Oneida counties. I have followed John for sometime and believes he wants the best for upstate NY. His public service contribution is one I respect. He has been in a government role 23 years and has witnessed many trends, and political discourse, which is why I am excited to talk with him today.Link:Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgSponsors:NativePath:Follow the link below to see all of NativePath's Pure Grass-Fed, Organic, Clean Supplements and use the CoMo15 code at checkout for 15% off!https://www.nativepath.com/Lombardi Chiropractic:https://www.lombardichiropractic.com/Mention the Co-Movement Gym Podcast when scheduling your initial appointment for 50% off Initial Consultation and X-Rays!Redmond:redmond.lifeOur team at Co-Movement Gym has used Redmond's Real Sea Salt, Seasonings, Re-Lyte Electrolyte drink and other products for years!

During her tenure, she created and curated programming for early-stage founders, and supported pre-seed/seed investments in companies reshaping industries in the southeast.She has previous experience leading program management, organizational change, and sustainable fund development.

"There has been no device historically that can detect cannabis impairment in real time. Cannabis works very differently in the body than does alcohol. So you can measure the amount of alcohol in the body and derive the experienced impairment from that number. The same is not true of cannabis." In this episode, I'm in conversation with Ken Fichtler, the founder and CEO of Gaize. Cannabis is now legal in many places where oil and gas is produced, refined and distributed. Cannabis is increasing in potency, people consume it more, and it lasts longer in body than alcohol, but with different impairment impacts. Without a better way to detect impairment, companies may simply not bother with any testing. Ken set out to find a digital solution to this problem, which is way harder than it sounds, but Gaize is now ready for prime time. "Is there a way we can currently detect cannabis impairment? And the only thing that I could find were these drug recognition, expert eye tests." Ken Fichtler is the founder and CEO of Gaize, a first of its kind real-time impairment detection platform. Gaize uses analyzes eye movement changes using artificial intelligence to discover impairment from cannabis and other drugs. He's a prior founder, proven operator, angel investor, and most recently served as Director of Economic Development for the State of Montana under Governor Steve Bullock. There he was responsible for adding thousands of jobs paying radically more than the state's average wages, recruited leading technology companies to the state, and managed the economic response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ken lives in Missoula, Montana with his family where he enjoys a broad variety of outdoor activities and serves on several boards. "Each class of drug has a unique bio signature that manifests in the eyes. And that basically just translates to a unique way in which the eye movement changes in response to that drug or to the impairment from that drug."

This week, Jonathan Lovitz, Director of Public Affairs & Senior Advisor for Economic Development at the US Department of Commerce, LGBTQIA+ Rights Advocate, and small business and public policy advocate takes time out of his very busy schedule to sit down with Laura and Todd to talk about advocating for the rights of others, the importance of mental health in advocacy and working together to overcome the divide we have in America today. Jonathan tells us about how he transitioned from performance (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar and a news anchor for Logo TV) to advocacy and politics and how both really aren't that different from each other. We also learn the true story behind Jonathan's refusal to serve on a New York City jury, citing the lack of equal protections and marriage equality for LGBT citizens in the state, something that led to multiple appearances on MSNB, NPR and MSNBC and thrust him into the advocacy spotlight. We learn what it's like to live out his dream working for the President at the Chamber of Commerce writing, lobbying and building programs that create jobs and equal opportunities for disenfranchised members of society, the emotional toll it takes on him and others to lead these movements and how he handles attacks and projection from others. Despite the accomplishments that have been made in the LGBTQIA+ community, recent events have made it quite clear that the work is nowhere near done and Jonathan emphasizes how important it is for everyone, including women, people of color, veterans, immigrants and the disabled, to link arms as one and fight the good fight for equality, because we are all in this together. We talk about how it has become apparent that there are people in power dedicated to reversing progress made by our disenfranchised communities and Jonathan is here to re-assure those on both sides of the aisle that a scarcity and individualistic mindset will not serve anyone; in fact there is enough pie to go around for everyone! We thoroughly enjoyed having Jonathan on the show and look forward to all of the amazing things we know he will accomplish in the future, so make sure to listen to our mind-expanding interview with Jonathan Lovitz!Links:Jonathan's WikipediaJonathan's IMBDJonathan's InstagramJonathan's LinkedinBallotpediaLGBT Chamber of Commerce ArticleU.S Economic Development AdministrationUS Chamber of Commerce Hosted on Acast.

Rob Stewart is the leader of Swansea Council, and has spent the last two decades forging a highly successful career in politics and business. In this episode, Rob joins Jeannette to talk about what it means to represent people in the political arena, why mindset matters so much when it comes to leadership, and the practical business lessons both learned and implemented that have turned him into a leader to be admired. KEY TAKEAWAYS The ones who get things done and place themselves as effective leaders, are those who always have a "can do" attitude. If you're negative about your prospects, you're doomed to fail. The pervasive image in the business world is that politicians do not understand their concerns. Coming from a business background himself has given Rob a real advantage. Planning requires something of a reform. Swansea is spearheading this shift in order to allow more businesses to put their mark on the city. Never discount the value that private enterprise can bring to an environment. Most companies are eager to improve their surroundings, which returns vitality for everyone. BEST MOMENTS 'We've taken the hard yards. Now we need to do it at scale' 'I've tried to bring a can-do attitude' 'This isn't something you do lightly' 'Difficulty comes from inconsistency in thinking' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

Afghanistan and Women's Rights: A Recent HistoryIn the early 20th century, Afghanistan might have been described as one of the most progressive countries in Central Asia in terms of women's rights. Afghan women first became eligible to vote in 1919 - a year before the United States enshrined a woman's right to vote with the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Afghan women were able to attend school, hold jobs, and participate in public life after a series of progressive reforms introduced by King Amanullah Khan, who ruled the country from 1919 to 1929.Amanullah's wife, Soraya Tarzi, was also a strong advocate for women's rights; she founded the first women's magazine in Afghanistan and worked to improve the lives of women in the country. However, the reforms of Amanullah Khan and Soraya Tarzi were met with resistance from many traditional Afghans. In 1929, a rebellion broke out against Khan, and he was forced to abdicate. He and Soraya fled to Italy, where they lived in exile until their deaths.The new government reversed many of Amanullah's reforms, including the abolition of purdah (the practice of female seclusion prevalent among some Muslim and Hindu communities) and the right of women to vote and hold office. Women were once again forced to stay in seclusion and were denied access to education, employment, and social opportunity. Rights and progress for women and girls in Afghanistan continued to deteriorate with the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 and subsequent rise of various Mujahideen groups that plunged the country into economic chaos and civil war. The Education of Women and Girls in AfghanistanThe Taliban came to power in Afghanistan in 1996 and imposed harsh restrictions on women and girls, including banning them from attending school. The US-led invasion of 2001 in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks resulted in the adoption of some progressive reforms, and in the years following the invasion, the number of girls enrolled in school in the country stabilized at about 3.5 million. However, the Taliban again seized power in Afghanistan after US-led forces withdrew from the region in 2021, which destroyed much of the progress that had been made for women's rights in the country. Secondary schools and universities are presently closed to women in Afghanistan, and girls and women currently pursuing education in Afghanistan do so at great risk to themselves and their families.Join us as we discuss the increasingly dire situation for women and girls in Afghanistan, the pressures being applied by the international community, and the ways in which Afghan women are fighting back against the dissolution of their rights and freedoms.Sources & Resources:BBC News - The secret schools teaching girls in AfghanistanTED Talk - Shabana Basij-Rasikh: The dream of educating Afghan girls lives onBritannica - Afghan WarU.S. Withdrawal from AfghanistanJSTOR - CHAPTER TWO Historical Overview: 20th-Century Security Aid to Afghanistan Before the Soviet InvasionAljazeera - Taliban says women banned from universities in AfghanistanThe Guardian - Taliban ban girls from secondary education in Afghanistan by Emma Graham-HarrisonThe Economic Times - Taliban claims closure of girl's school "temporary", says not a "permanent ban"United Nations - Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed's press conference upon her return from AfghanistanThe White House - FACT SHEET: Let Girls Learn – A Comprehensive Investment in Adolescent Girls EducationEditorials - Boosting Let Girls Learn in AfghanistanWikipedia - FCC Fairness DoctrineWikipedia - Ed GodfreyBuried Beneath the Baobab Tree By Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, Viviana Mazza The Guardian - Trump administration may scrap Michelle Obama's health and education programs by Tom McCarthyCounter Terrorism Guide - Boko HaramWikipedia - Boko HaramEarth Day History

God painted His heart for the Nations throughout the pages of His Word, from Genesis to Revelation... If we live our lives, spend our money, eat/drink, exercise, pray, and practice medicine without catching this vision, we're missing out on the greatest masterpiece ever created! We create a false dichotomy of domestic healthcare and that which is international. God doesn't see it this way and neither should we.
