If you're interested in abortion numbers post-Dobbs, this thread is for you 🧵
(I'm going to reference some sources, which I'll hyperlink at the bottom of the thread, FYI)
In February I compiled a bunch of data from sources including Texas Health & Human Services, Texas Policy Evaluation Project, the Journal of the American Medical Association, & the US Census Bureau in order to figure out what abortions in Texas looked like post-Dobbs.
Since virtually all the abortion clinics in TX shut down, the obvious question for many would be, "What abortions? It's illegal now. Right?"


I was looking specifically for data on out-of-state abortions and mail-order abortions, and what the data suggested was tragic.

Dear Charles Young @WVNews247

Lemme tell ya something...
So much of the situation with nurses right now was not caused by COVID. It was just the cherry on top. For decades nurses have had a shortage, but what we don't lack is money hungry CEOs. 1/…
What we don't lack is bad leadership. From department managers on up to the top. The bigotry, racism, and outright hostile work environment created by corporate interest in our hospitals. We don't have safe working conditions, equitable pay or benefits... 2/
We are often forced to work while we are sick. Mandatory overtime. No work life balance. Lack of supplies and PPE to do our jobs and constant budget cuts while our corporate masters get raises. We are also threatened with termination if we want to unionize! 3/

💊 Older adults make up 56% of the global cancer population, yet they're just 40% of participants in new cancer therapy trials. The underrepresentation of this key demographic in clinical trials is a major concern. #clinicaltrials #healthcare #aging Image
💊Trials biased towards younger patients without comorbidities and multiple prescription drugs yield cleaner datasets but may not provide sufficient evidence on drug safety and efficacy for older populations. 2/3

💊 US and UK regulators recognize the problem and have issued guidelines to address it recently. While guidelines and incentives can make a difference, legislation may be necessary to fully tackle the problem in the end. ⚖️ 3/3

1/15 🧵💡 Decentralized storage & compute could truly supercharge the #InternetOfThings (#IoT). But how? Let's unpack this crucial evolution for our hyper-connected world. 🌐👇
2/15 📚 First, it's crucial to understand the concepts. #DecentralizedStorage refers to data storage spread across multiple devices or locations, rather than a central server. #DecentralizedCompute refers to computations performed on these distributed devices.💻🌍
3/15 📈 IoT devices generate an enormous amount of data daily. Centralized servers currently deal with this load, but as more and more devices connect, scalability becomes a challenge. Decentralization offers a solution. #EdgeComputing #Scalability

The fiduciary duties of a self-insured employer health plan are enormous.

97% of self-insured employers do not comply with these duties.

Here they are. Once you read them, you’ll have a better idea!
Fiduciary obligations are duties that a person or entity has to act in the best interest of another party. In the context of health plan assets, fiduciaries typically include administrators or other individuals who manage the plan. These obligations can vary depending on specific……
2. Duty of Prudence: Fiduciaries are required to act with care, skill, prudence, and diligence when making decisions about the plan's assets. This often means making well-researched, reasoned decisions that a prudent person would make in a similar situation.

We’ve seen the pace of #payroll gains decelerate to roughly the monthly trend pace from the last expansion; consensus has been waiting for this moment and expected a 195,000 job gain in May, but the data printed considerably stronger at 339,000 #jobs gained.
The three-month moving average of #nonfarm payrolls sits at 283,000, down from 334,000 jobs at the start of the year, but what the #LaborMarket imbalance needs is more supply and more slack.
The #unemployment rate ticked up to 3.65%, close to its 12-month average level, and average hourly #earnings (a volatile figure) gained 0.33% month-over-month and 4.3% on a year-over-year basis.

I have no followers so I'm sure this post will be a waste of #TwitterSpace. I have personally been blessed and cursed by the whole medical system most of my life. To start off, my father shot himself when I was 7 due to mental health issues. Back then depression and bipolar 👇🏼
was treated with drugs like Valium. He had a really low moment and boom. “Tell Roger I’m sorry” is what they told me he said. I was introduced to #oxycontin at the ripe age of 15. My first dose was 40mg and I was sick as a dog for hours. That would trigger a lifelong battle 👇🏼
With addiction to #opiods. After my mom abandoned me when I was 16 and after some time in a homeless shelter
then rehab, I began to get my life together at age 22. 23 im married and doing ok and wreck an #ATV (4-wheeler) off a mountain in #NorthCarolina and become #paralyzed👇🏼

I never would have thought that one would be left at home, seriously ill, without help.
I would never have thought that children have to suffer in the dark at home, that relatives would be mocked at the same time, instead of doctors providing help.

I never would have thought that #MEcfs sufferers had to fight so much and actually become a political issue.
I never would have thought that the so-called health care system could let people down in such an ignorant way.
I never would have thought that in addition to #MEcfs, devastating illnesses such as #SmallFiber #POTS #MCAS, CranioCervical Instability #CCI #Lyme #PostVac and poisoning by #fluoroquinolones #FQAD would also be swept under the carpet in the so-called healthcare sector.

#BuzzWords in #Healthcare that often mean nothing: #PatientEngagement, #PatientCenteredCare #SharedDecisionMaking
Studies have demonstrated for years that IF #patients are #authentically involved in #care outcomes are better, yet, too often the above words thrown out to 1
attract, yet no actions follow.
How often have you been asked your desired outcome of #Healthcare?
How often are you asked about barriers to healthcare or recommendations?
How often are plans focused only on med issue?
How often do you feel your #voice is truly #valued in 2
your own #careplanning?
How often do you feel there is collaboration between all doctors OR do you feel at times doc have competing or conflicting recommendations?

#Patients voice should be central. #LetMeHearYourVoice 3

Wood burning can cause cancer, esp lung cancer, respiratory disease, heart disease, dementia, premature death, & other health issues which are devastating. Wood burning emits more CO2 than gas. Inaction and silence on this affects everyone.
No laws to stop residential burning (fireplaces, fire pits, backyard burning, planned burns), & no public campaign on the dangers of residential burning means anyone can burn and emit smoke into your home. No action now, leaves you, the next generation, & environment unprotected

India sees around 3.37L cycles of IVF in a year & AIIMS Research says this is only slated to grow with Marriageable age on the rise in India . They expect 10-15% of married couples will undergo this treatment.

IVF typically costs are 1.5-2L today . Do your maths
I was reminded of MILANN from the HCG stable . Though tiny today , growing aggressively.

Management wanted to divest it off few years back , but I guess sensing the opportunity has changed course & now is focusing on growing .
