Robert Reed was an active man who practiced karate and played basketball, softball, and football. When he developed arthritis in his knees, he required surgery. Rather than a full knee replacement, doctors like Ira Kirschenbaum can perform a partial knee resurfacing.
“The knee has three separate compartments,” explains Kirschenbaum. “When only one part of the knee is diseased, we have the opportunity to just replace that part. Instead of fully replacing it, I’m able to simply resurface the end of the bone with metal on one side, and a high-density medical plastic on the other side, and leave the rest of the knee completely intact and leave all the ligaments and the rest of the person’s feelings of their knee as if it was their old knee.”
Only the damaged surface is replaced during a partial knee resurfacing, so trauma to healthy bone and tissue is minimized. In a total replacement, the whole knee is cut out. If the joint fails in the future, the entire mechanism must be replaced.
Partial knee resurfacing would not be an effective treatment option for people suffering from severe arthritis, or those battling rheumatoid arthritis. But Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum tells us, “Anyone with the osteoarthritis restricted primarily to one part of the joint is an excellent candidate. And that represents probably 70% of all the arthritis sufferers out there.”

It’s no secret that the United States has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world and routinely delivers some of the poorest healthcare outcomes of any system seen in an advanced nations. While there are countries in Europe that still pay a substantial fraction of the healthcare costs of the American system, with many having costs relative of America’s of around the 30- to 40-percent range, those countries also typically have far higher-rated systems than what Americans experience. This is a grave problem for Americans who must foot the bill for such an underperforming healthcare system.
Drew Madden is one of the foremost experts in the healthcare IT space today. As the founder and CEO of Evergreen Healthcare Partners, Madden helps doctors, administrators and hospital networks every day with integrating technology into their practices. Madden believes that one of the most serious problems ailing the U.S. healthcare system today is a lack of competitiveness in the healthcare market. While the reasons for this are numerous, Madden says that it mostly boils down to one simple factor: Patients are not able to make informed decisions about their own healthcare.
Madden says that this problem is at least partially intentional. He believes that healthcare companies and insurance firms have no interest in creating a genuinely well-informed public. And the results are often disastrous to those seeking healthcare. As one example, Madden cites a procedure in one town that cost $30,000 to carry out. At a different hospital that was located just a few miles away, that same procedure cost over $70,000. Madden says that situations like this are distressingly common. And the only real explanation for such woeful inefficiencies in the healthcare market is that the patients themselves are completely uninformed about the true nature of the treatments they are receiving and the associated costs.
Madden seeks to create systems and platforms that will enable patients to make well-informed decisions about their own healthcare and to help to bring some real competitiveness to the U.S. healthcare industry. He says that doing so may be one of the biggest steps that the nation can take towards finally beginning to reduce costs.

Jim Toner is a real estate investor and a very good one at that. He’s enjoyed a long and very successful career working in real estate. He is a great speaker in this field, acting as a radio show host, and a consultant on the subject. His expertise in making real estate investments easy and user-friendly for people in everyday life has made his business a huge success and has ensured that he’s enjoyed a brilliant career. However, in a recent interview Jim toner gave a brief outline of his daily gym routine – could this also be the secret to his success?
Jim, who has taught thousands of people the best way on how to invest in real estate with his 2 little Houses Plan. He admits in a interview that he attends the gym every single morning. Jim’s day usually gets started at 5:30 in the morning. The first 30 minutes he is awake, he just spend that time clearing his mind and thinking. Then he makes his way to the gym. He explains that he likes to listen to audible books and podcasts as he works out. He also mentions, that he feels, this is one of the reasons he succeeded so much in business and in life in general. Jim Toner then states, that by the time he is finished with exercise, his mind and body is ready.
Jim’s morning routine obviously helps set him up for the day. His exercise regime combined with listening to podcasts or audible books, in all probability, gets his mind clear from muddled thoughts, and gets his creative juices flowing. His understanding that his mind and body needs to be stimulated and kept in tip-top condition, in order for him to find a balance between life and work – is inspirational.
There is no doubt that Jim Toner (@thejimtoner) can guide us in everything we need to know about real estate investment. However, inadvertently, Jim also teaches us that by caring for our minds and bodies, we really give ourselves the best chance of success in real estate investment and business in general.
Jim Larkin is a well-known trade union leader and socialist activist who help founded the Irish Labour Party in 1912. Born and raised in Liverpool, England, on January 21, 1876, Larkin had a very poor upbringing and mostly worked in odd jobs throughout his childhood to help his family out. His working class parents came from Northern Ireland and had emigrated to England before he was born.
Larkin participated in the dispute and it resulted in losing his foreman dock-porter job. The National Union of Dock Labourers appointed him as one of their trade union organizers and sent him off to several cities in Scotland for his first duties as a union member.
Although he was naturally a skillful union organizer, the NUDL had to remove him from the union because of his strike methods. In 1908, Jim Larkin moved to Dublin, Ireland, to establish his own trade union organization, the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, ITGWU.

He continuously fought for workers’ rights across Ireland as well as support other organizations in the area. His desire was for Ireland’s industrial labor force to work under one union.
The ITGWU had gained over 10,000 members by 1912 and many employers of Dublin opposed Larkin’s trade unionism. They gave all of their workers under the ITGWU a choice to save their employment or become locked out.
The infamous ‘1913 Dublin Lock-out’ had occurred afterwards and more than 20,000 laborers went against 300 employers in non-violent strikes and boycotts. The workers had vigorously fought for fair pay and employment.
