Five Key Principles to Sound Prescription Medication Pricing Reform

Congress and policy makers in Washington are intently
focused on how to optimally manage the cost of prescription medications.  Many proposals have already been released,
and it is likely that this focus will continue well into the 2020 elections and
beyond.  This focus is appropriate given
the importance access to medications plays as a cornerstone of the management
of most medical conditions.  It is also
likely that over the next several months and years there will be a myriad of
legislative and regulatory proposals floated, debated and voted on or
enacted. 

Given the profound impact these policy changes will have on
the efficacy of health care in the United States and, most importantly, the
well-being of patients across the country, Men’s Health Network strongly urges
public sector policy makers and regulators as well as private sector payers,
benefit managers and PBM executives to adhere to the following principles to
ensure that proposed reforms are focused on ultimately benefiting patients and optimizing
the costs associated with adhering to prescribed medical therapies.   

Five Key Principles to Sound Prescription Medication Pricing Reform:

These five principles have one commonality – keeping the long-term
best interests of patients in focus.  In
the end that will fulfill the ethical and social obligations of providers,
government and health benefit managers and enhance the care of patients.

As part of our work educating and providing advocacy opportunities
for men, boys and their families, Men’s Health Network will continue to explore
these principles in more depth in the coming weeks. Please check back here on
our blog to follow the series or reach out on social media to engage, ask
questions, and learn more about the policies that impact men’s health.

Gemma Ruegg took up boxing on the advice of her family doctor after suffering mental health problems.

Now the 34-year-old from Bournemouth in Dorset is a two-weight champion after winning the regional welterweight title just 10 weeks after giving birth to her sixth child.

Gemma was an alcohol addict at the age of 16 and experienced depression and self-harm, but says that boxing turned her life around and has given her “something to be good at.”

She also met her husband at the gym and trained throughout her pregnancy, returning to the ring three weeks after giving birth to Trixie.

Research says that napping can lead to a brain boost during the day, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

University of California-Riverside psychologist Sara Mednick found way back in 2003 that people do better with a visual learning task after they’ve had a good night’s sleep, and not right after they learn it. Mednick also determined that the same test advantage occurred after a 60-90 minute nap.

“What’s amazing is that in a 90-minute nap, you can get the same [learning] benefits as an eight-hour sleep period,” Mednick told the American Psychological Association. “And actually, the nap is having an additive benefit on top of a good night of sleep.”

A more recent study from University of Michigan doctoral student Jennifer Goldschmied and colleagues showed that people who got a 60-minute nap in the middle of the day helped them cope better with difficult people, an effect scientifically described as a boosted tolerance for frustration.

Sweet potato soup balances the sweet and savory with onions, garlic, onions, and leeks, along with a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon. Creamy and satisfying!

Looking for a special soup to serve this holiday season? Consider this creamy sweet potato soup!

How to Make Sweet Potato Soup

We adapted this recipe from one in an old issue of Bon Appétit, changing it up slightly—ditching the maple syrup the original called for (the sweet potatoes are sweet enough), and cutting back on the cream.

We start the soup by cooking a base of onions, celery, and leeks in butter. Then we add sweet potatoes, chicken stock and spices, simmer for 20 minutes, and purée until smooth. At the end we stir in some milk and cream, and add a swirl of sour cream to serve. Easy!

The holiday spices of cinnamon and nutmeg give the soup hints of pumpkin pie and glazed yams, as if someone slipped a little of each into the blender when the soup was being puréed.

What if I Don’t Do Dairy?

Feel free to use another cup of stock instead of the milk and cream, or use coconut milk (canned) or soy milk instead of the milk and cream.

What to serve with this soup

I love creamy soups served with some crusty bread on the side for dipping. Serve the soup as a main on its own, or alongside beef, pork, chicken, or black beans. Because it’s rich and creamy, the soup would do well served with a side salad of fresh lettuce greens tossed in a light vinaigrette.

How to Keep, Freeze and Reheat This Soup

This soup should keep in the fridge for several days, covered.

Typically, soups with cream don’t do well with freezing and reheating. If you want to make the soup ahead of time and freeze it, make it through step 3, leaving out the milk and cream. Freeze the soup, defrost it in a saucepan over low heat until warm, and then add the milk and cream.

WHO DOESN’T LOVE A CREAMY BOWL OF SOUP?

Updated September 18, 2019 : We spiffed up this post to make it sparkle! No changes to the original recipe.

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

If you want to make this soup without dairy, feel free to substitute either additional stock, which will result in a thinner soup, or soy milk or coconut milk for the cream and milk in this recipe. Omit the sour cream or yogurt topping, and use olive oil instead of butter.

Ingredients

Method

1 Cook the onions, celery, leeks, and garlic: Melt the butter in a large, thick-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the celery and leeks and sauté for 5 more minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook a minute more.

2 Make and simmer the soup: Add the sweet potatoes, chicken stock, cinnamon stick, and nutmeg. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and simmer uncovered until the sweet potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.

3 Blend the soup: Remove the cinnamon stick. Use an immersion blender to purée the soup or work in batches and purée the soup in a standing blender.

4 Finish the soup: Add the cream and milk to the soup. Heat on medium until the soup is heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Sprinkle with more black pepper and swirl some water-thinned sour cream or plain yogurt over the soup to serve.

I posted these mashed potatoes years ago, and hundreds of you have cooked them! But, seeing as mashed potato season is just around the corner, I thought I’d update the recipe with a few notes and suggestions. Buttery peaks and cloud-like potatoes are drizzled with a saffron garlic butter, and topped with a toasted almond, coriander, sesame sprinkle. Incredibly delicious. Simple, but with enough of a twist to make them special.

Perfect Mashed Potatoes with Saffron Garlic ButterPerfect Mashed Potatoes with Saffron Garlic Butter

Best Type of Potato to Use

People really dig in with opinions about what type of potato is best when it comes to making mashed potatoes. I like the creamy texture most waxy “new” potatoes bring to the party. Yukon golds or yellow finns are my go-to. That said, many people use russet potatoes. Russets have a higher starch quantity, and can contribute to a beautiful, fluffy bowl of potatoes for sure. But my secret weapon is smaller, waxy potatoes. They’re so creamy, and lend a beautiful, naturally rich texture you can’t get otherwise.

Skin off or Skin on?

This is completely a personal preference. If you’re serving a crowd that appreciates a rustic mashed potato, by all means, leave the skins on. If your people like uniform billowing clouds of mashed potato, get out the peeler. I tend to bounce back and forth between the two.

The Secret Drizzle Magic

The thing that takes these mashed potatoes over the top is the special butter. It’s the simple combination of butter, garlic, saffron, and a pinch of salt. When you drizzle it over the potatoes, it smells incredible, and is the perfect way to finish your beautiful potatoes. As a last touch, a dusting of almonds and herbs brings an updated accent to classic mashed potatoes, but you can skip of you’re more old-school, and like your potatoes straight.

Mashed Potato Variations

I also love these Kale Mashed Potatoes from forever ago. And if you’re open-minded about a sweet potato variation – these Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes are in need of an updated photo (laugh/cry), but so good.

Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits remains the largest wine distributor in the United States and retained its No. 1 position on the list of the Top 10 U.S. Wine Distributors in 2019. No. 2 Republic National Distributing Co. formed a partnership with No. 4 Young’s Market Co as the largest companies strengthened their hold on the wholesale wine market.

The September issue of the Wine Analytics Report features the third annual Top 10 U.S. Wine Distributors list, which is based on proprietary data from the Wines Vines Analytics’ Distributor Market Service. The rankings are based wholly on distributors’ wine business and not their entire beverage alcohol portfolios. The list first appeared in the pages of Wines & Vines magazine.

The biggest story in the world of wine wholesaling this past year was the megadeal that didn’t happen. Republic National Distributing Co. (RNDC) and No. 3 Breakthru Beverage Group had announced plans to merge and form what would have been a national giant with the reach and portfolio depth to compete directly with Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits, but the deal was quashed by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. The companies cited a “protracted review process” in withdrawing their merger plans for review, while the feds cited concerns over higher prices and worse service for consumers and suppliers.

RNDC did obtain federal approval for a partnership with Young’s Market Co. that solidified its No. 2 position on this year’s list of Top 10 U.S. Wine Distributors. The top two distributors now account for $27 billion in wine sales or more than half of the nearly $50 billion U.S. consumers spend on domestic wines per year.

NARS Hot Voodoo Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, coppery brown with warm, orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, but the bullet was quite firm and dense to the point where it felt stiff against my lips. I had the best luck applying it in short strokes rather than trying to apply it in a fluid motion.

The texture was very lightweight–it almost felt like I was wearing nothing at all–but there was some emphasize of lip texture and lines; even though it had a lot of shimmer, it wasn’t that shiny or glossy. It wore well for four and a half hours but felt a little drying over time.

  • Fenty Beauty Sunfrost (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).
  • Maybelline Copper Spark (P, $7.49) is brighter, cooler (90% similar).
  • Guerlain #93 (LE, $33.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar).
  • Milk Makeup Angel (P, $24.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).
  • MAC Bronze Shimmer (P, $19.50) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).
  • Urban Decay Heatwave (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).
  • Smashbox Desert Rose (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).
  • Estee Lauder Tiger Eye (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar).
  • Tom Ford Beauty Thrust (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, cooler, glossier (85% similar).
  • Bite Beauty Candied Guava (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.12 oz. – $216.67 Per Ounce

NARS has reformulated their core lipstick range, which now includes 72 shades across three finishes: matte, sheer, and satin. The formula is supposed to go on “smoothly and evenly with a light feel” that is “long-lasting” and “resistant to bleeding and feathering.” The sheer finish has “subtle, sheer color that shines,” while the satin finish has “creamy rich color” and the matte finish has “intense color with a velvety finish.”

The matte finish has a very thin, featherweight feel to it, but they didn’t feel clingy or too prone to dragging during application, though they were definitely a firmer texture in the tube. There was enough glide from the inclusion of dimethicone (first ingredient for the matte finish) that went on evenly, felt velvety but didn’t feel as powder-like as some of the other more silicone-heavy matte lipstick formulas that have been released in the last couple of years. Most shades were pigmented and nearly opaque to opaque. The wear ranged from three to six hours with deeper, richer shades staying on a bit longer and leaving slight stains. They were comfortable to wear but felt more non-drying than particularly hydrating.

The satin finish has more slip, feels thicker (though not actually thick or heavy) compared to the matte finish, and of course, there was subtle to light shine/sheen. They applied smoothly, comfortably, and for the most part, went on evenly and didn’t sink noticeably into my lip lines but there was some variance between shades. They were typically semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with four to six-hour wear that was lightly hydrating.

The sheer finish had coverage that ranged from semi-sheer to true medium coverage but most had some translucency to them, which gave them a sheerer finish. I found most of the shades I tried were buildable to some degree. The texture was a bit firmer, but they felt more emollient and “melted” a bit more against my lips than I recall the original line of lipsticks doing. Some shades applied well with even application and were flattering on, but there were a few that sank more noticeably into my lip lines. This finish tended to wear between three and five hours.

I don’t have many of NARS’ original lipsticks in my stash (I have mostly Audacious as they haven’t been releasing many in the core range) to compare to. The matte finish was definitely thinner, more matte, and had a velvetier look on lips compared to the original which had a subtle sheen to it. The satin finish seemed a bit more pigmented and not quite as luminous/glossy as the previous formula, while the sheer finish was creamier, more emollient, and was easier to apply. It didn’t feel like a vastly different formula, but it felt a bit easier to work with (smoother, more emollient but still lighterweight and thin, far less slip than any of the Audacious range) and was more comfortable to wear across the board for me.

I didn’t notice any scent or taste, though there is “fragrance (parfum)” listed in the ingredients–it smelled neutral, not waxy but I just didn’t get any scent.

NARS Raw Seduction Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy coral with warmer, more orange-leaning undertones paired with a creamy finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one pass, which was hard to build up as the color was more likely to slide around and accumulate into my lip lines. It showed a clear line of demarcation when I pressed my lips together, too.

It had a lightly creamy consistency, and while it felt lightweight and didn’t feel as creamy as it looked, it emphasized my lip lines, sank into them over time, and was more prone to catching on imperfections. I’d recommend applying a lip primer or wearing this over a lip liner to alleviate the product’s issues. It wore well for four hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

NARS Banned Red Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, rusty brown with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage that delivered even, smooth color in a single stroke that never dragged or tugged on my lips.

The consistency was lightweight, creamy enough to glide on, but it had a thinner feel–it looked creamier than it actually felt. The color didn’t emphasize my lip lines, and the formula felt lightly hydrating over the five hours it lasted for.

The Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Act would establish two five-year renewable grant programs to staff schools with mental health services providers. (News 10)

Oregon lawmakers and mental health experts are working to improve the student to school counselor ratio with a new bill.

Introduced on Wednesday by Sen. Jeff Merkley, the Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Act would establish two five-year renewable grant programs to staff schools with mental health services providers.

The program will provide both need-based and proportional-based funding.

Sen. Merkley said the bill will provide students with the necessary in-school treatment and care they need.

“This is just something I’ve heard about all across the state of Oregon, from administrators to educators to parents, that enough students have a mental health issue that they really need an expert to be part of the school staff,” Merkley said.

The recommended student-to-counselor ratio is 250 students per counselor, but the current national average is 455 students per counselor.

Sen. Merkley said the purpose of this legislation would ensure students are not left waiting for support during a crisis, as youth with access to mental health services providers in their school are 10 times more likely to seek care.

Big and juicy, Lagunitas’ latest IPA is made with Loral 291, Hallertau Blanc, Galaxy, and Citra hops — and it’s only going to be available during the month of September, so best hop on it as soon as possible.

The appropriately hazy brew is less pineapple and more papaya, with a greener, more melon-oriented edge to it. Bold pine needles become more evident on the nose as the beer warms up, along with a gentle resin that pairs well the rather thick and rather dense body (the beer is brewed with both oats and wheat in the mix). On the finish, a nice pop of tropical character keeps the overwhelming dankness of hops mostly at bay, helping the brew to finish clean.

Goes down a bit too easy, y’all.
