How to Stay Cool 😎

With a major heat dome covering the Western US this week, we’re all reminded of the importance of staying cool. Beat the heat by misting your skin, blocking sunlight with dark sheets, using fans, applying cooling cloths, and avoiding strenuous activities in the heat. Make sure to hydrate more than usual, monitor your urine color, and recognize symptoms like heavy sweating, dizziness, and confusion. Take extra precautions for children, pets, and seniors by limiting outdoor activities, ensuring hydration, and keeping them in cool environments. For better sleep, use breathable sheets, fans, and cool showers before bed.

FDA Psychedelic Rejection

An FDA advisory panel found that the evidence for using MDMA to treat PTSD is insufficient, citing data gaps, abuse potential, and trial misconduct allegations. They voted 9–2 against its effectiveness and 10–1 against its benefits outweighing risks, delivering a significant setback for MDMA's approval for PTSD treatment. Despite patient testimonials of positive effects and promising research results, concerns about trial design, ethical issues, and the lack of comprehensive data on the drug's effects and safety remained.

Cancer Care Denial

Lifepoint Health’s Memorial Medical Center in Las Cruces, NM, stands accused of denying cancer patients care or demanding upfront payments from both insured and uninsured patients. Lifepoint, backed by Apollo Global Management, changed its indigent care policy in 2023 to exclude cancer treatments without formal written notification to local officials. Lifepoint and the hospital's CFO deny the allegations, asserting their commitment to community health. The situation raises concerns about private equity's impact on healthcare costs and quality, with Lifepoint under Senate investigation, though Memorial has not received related requests.

Take a look at the latest hot topics in the financial world:

  • Crypto is seeing a resurgence in popularity and price. Bitcoin is over 70K, thanks in part to a new ETF (Exchange Traded Fund). While this sounds exciting, and the FOMO can be real, proceed with caution and educate yourself before you buy!

  • Do you have student loans with Navient? If so, you may be eligible for student loan forgiveness that has historically not been available to private borrowers. Biden has issued forgiveness and repayment plans for federal student loans.Β 

  • Only 25 states require personal finance coursework in high school. While this number is increasing, should all states be required to offer this? Finances rank as the highest stressor to Americans and play a huge role in mental health. The earlier we learn financial fundamentals, the better!
