Over The Counter Insulin

So I saw this floating around Facebook and it seems that it is indeed true that you can go into Walmart and buy insulin over the counter for $25 with a few caveats. Didn’t see it posted in this section and thought it might be of interest to everyone as a storable barter item or even people who this might be a viable alternative for. I know how we all feel about snopes but in this case their article sums it up pretty well: Sent from my iPho...

Telemedicine’s challenge: Getting patients to click the app

Walmart workers can now see a doctor for only $4. The catch? It has to be a virtual visit. The retail giant recently rolled back the $40 price on telemedicine, becoming the latest big company to nudge employees toward a high-tech way to get diagnosed and treated remotely. But patients have been slow to embrace […]

Technology will kill the 9-to-5 work week, says Richard Branson

Branson made the argument in a recent blog post published on the Virgin website.The 40-hour work week stems from labor laws created in the early 20th century, and many have said this model is becoming increasingly obsolete.The average American currently works 47 hours per week, on average. None Have you ever had a 'case of the Mondays,' or remarked that you can't believe it's 'hump day' already, or said TGIF to a coworker at the end of a regular, 9-to-5 week? The chances are that, as A.I. contin...

Expert Strategies for Taming Your Toddler’s Tantrums

As the parent of a toddler, you are all-too familiar with tantrums. They’re part of the landscape of your day. Maybe they happen at the same time every day. Maybe they feel random. Maybe it’s a bit of both. Either way, they’re exasperating and draining. And they also can be jarring—thanks to your toddler’s seemingly endless ear-splitting sobs and screams. Which, of course, stresses you out even more. Tantrums are actually tough to define. According to Rebecca Schrag Hershberg, PhD, a clinical ...

Psychology Around the Net: December 1, 2018

This week’s Psychology Around the Net takes a look at what you should ask yourself before you forgive someone, whether or not the #MeToo movement could hurt women’s health care, a new mental health care facility located in a Walmart, and more. Should I Forgive Him? Should I Forgive Her? Here’s What You Should Ask Yourself First: Forgiveness is often more about yourself than it is the person you’re forgiving (or not forgiving), and because of that, you might accidentally create a “problem” tha...

Health care is on a different trajectory from most other businesses today. It’s a little hard to understand why.

5 Daily Habits That Will Make You A More Positive and Happy Person

As we grow older and gain more wisdom through the years, we realize that money or popularity by themselves do not spell success. Rather, it is the presence of happiness in our lives that makes it all worthwhile. We may be the wealthiest person on our street but if we’re miserable, we are far from successful. The problem most of us face is getting caught up in the daily grind of life and becoming worn out, overworked, and over-caffeinated. Of course, with all of life’s little and big stresses com...

Is Gustave Doré's "Saintly throng in the shape of a rose" the source material for the illustration for the NYT article "Everything Is for Sale Now. Even Us"?

In Dante's "Paradiso" the souls in Heaven form a rose:Dante sees an enormous rose, symbolising divine love, the petals of which are the enthroned souls of the faithful (both those of the Old Testament and those of the New). All the souls he has met in Heaven, including Beatrice, have their home in this rose. Angels fly around the rose like bees, distributing peace and love. Beatrice now returns to her place in the rose, signifying that Dante has passed beyond theology in directly contemplating G...

Justice Kennedy: A justice who changed his mind

Daniel Hemel is an assistant professor of law at the University of Chicago Law School. Justice Anthony Kennedy’s majority opinion in the online-sales-tax case South Dakota v. Wayfair was his final — and most significant — decision involving the dormant commerce clause doctrine, which prohibits state and local governments from passing laws that discriminate against or unduly burden interstate commerce unless Congress consents. Wayfair also was a sharp break from Kennedy’s dormant commerce clause ...

Better and Cheaper Way to Fight Heartburn from Walmart

Fixing primary care’s broken business model

Primary care visits are never quick; we don’t give much advice over the phone or online; and we prioritize the government’s and insurance companies’ public health agenda over our own patients’ concerns. Imagine health care as a retail customer experience for a few minutes: Imagine you’re going to Walmart to buy a bag of dog food, a new coffee maker or to equip a small kitchen in your newly built mother-in-law apartment. 1. You’ve bought dog food there before, so you know exactly where it is. You...

Surviving SHTF With Diabetes

Contrary to popular belief, it is indeed possible to survive for long periods of time with serious illnesses such as diabetes. As a type 1 diabetic, I find it important to educate people on strategies necessary to survive. It will definitely take more preparation than it would take a normal person, but it can be done. The first thing to do is to assess one's condition. Doctors will give you many different tools to try and keep you healthy. In my case these would be insulin pumps, continuous glu...

Walmart Novolin R Insulin vs. Humalog

Due to a screwup by my insurance-company-mandated online pharmacy, (which I have come to loathe) I was forced to go to Walmart on Wednesday to get additional "fast" insulin. (In my state, it's legal to sell over-the-counter.) What I got was "Novolin R", made by Novo Nordisk specifically for Walmart stores, it says on the box. I'm finding that its' potency is on the order of 1/4 that of my usual Humalog, (Lilly product). Which is to say that I'm using 4X the dose by volume to get the same resul...
