Nathan Cortez, JD co-wrote an article on FDA regulation of mobile apps published in the July 24, 2014 issue of NEJM. Luckily, we snagged an opportunity to interview him - you can listen here.
We covered a wide variety of topics including:
Why regulate mHealth anyway?
The new FDA guidance — what needs to be regulated and what does not?
How does the FDA handle at continual updates of mobile health products – so different from the pharmaceuticals that they regulate? How do they decide whether an update constitutes a major change, requiring re-review and one that is minor and does not?
What is “substantially equivalence” and how is it being used in mHealth
How does the FDA handle mHealth products that provide consumer decision support (CDS)? What is the difference between low risk and high risk CDS?
Does the FDA have the right people/processes in place to provide oversight of mHealth?
Professor Cortez teaches and writes in the areas of health law, administrative law, and FDA law. His research focuses on emerging markets in health care and biotechnology. Prof. Cortez has become one of the world’s leading legal scholars on medical tourism, patient mobility, and cross-border health insurance, and has published several articles and book chapters on the legal and ethical implications of these phenomena. His research also addresses mobile health technologies, how to regulate innovations that disrupt static regulatory regimes, the First Amendment restraints on FDA regulation (including FDA's graphic tobacco warnings), immigration federalism, and alternative modes of regulation.
This week we will two great guests visit. In the first hour we have Dwayne Stovall. He campaigned for US Senator in the 2014 GOP primary in Texas. Now he runs a Keep Texas Free initiative. He travels around educating about the troubles within our federal government and how it has slipped into a centralized form of government over the last 100 years and how the states rights have been stripped away.
We also have Joe Dan Gorman of Intellectual Frog Legs fame scheduled to be a guest. He creates one of the most informative creative youtubes about the news of our world weekly. Both Gulf and I are avid watchers of his stuff. It will be fun to just sit back and talk with him about his shows and opinions of events happening.
Calls are more than welcome and encouraged for tonight's show. We will have a few things to knock around I am sure. After all we still have the same marxists attempting to destroy our country, Hamas firing rockets into Israel, immigrants flooding our border, etc.

We explore federalism in-depth on today's show. What is it? What isn't it? Is it still important? Many today want us to divide on issuse and personalities while we rarely ask the fundamental question of whether we should be embracing federalism in our complex world or moving toward nationalism as practiced today.
Join us as Freedom Coach Gary Alder and Gary Wood delve into our Constitutional heritage, the freedom it offers, and the contrast between our society today and the society we were meant to have. We will be looking at foundational education to help us better understand today and help restore People's Law moving forward. If you love those 4,373 words in the Constitution we know you will enjoy our show...and there is no doubt, Freedom is Rising!

A quick overview of how federalism weaves it's way through the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution.
SAPA, Impeachment, Anti-Common Core, Convention of States, Right to Work, Marijuana Law. What do all these have in common? When you talk about them, you are talking about State Sovereignty. How did the latest General Assembly handle your State's Sovereignty? A review of the past legislative session gives us a keen insight into exactly what your lawmakers think of the status of our State in the federal cooperative and, by extension, what they think of YOU!
We will outline the details of the Million Dollar Message. REJECT Stanley Cox, SUPPORT Mike Moon. What's that all about. It's about sending the message. WE ARE THE PEOPLE and you support us to your own advantage or ignore us at your own peril. At the national level, this week's primaries reinforce the notion that only by retaking our STATE can we ever expect to make gains! Are you ready to replace words with action! Listen tonight on how you can join forces with 100,000 Missourians to send the message LOUD AND CLEAR.
Join us at 7PM Missouri Time. You can participate, air your own views, insert your own issues. The studio line is 347-677-1835.
Some thoughts on the weekend's MDGOP convention. (If you missed the live broadcast you can listen to it here);
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, having failed to change the constitution while on the Supreme Court, wants a series of constitutional amendments passed.
The next Maryland Attorney General will have to deal with issues of the rule of law, crime, corruption and federalism, so what are the Democratic AG candidates talking about? .... their environmental records!
A follow up to our discussion last week about our cultural obsession with pets. Having solved all of our human based problems, I share some new Maryland laws designed to protect your fur babies.
And, in yet another sign of the impending apocalypse, our society has descended to the point where the President of the United States feels comfortable wearing flip-flops in public. I will invite him and the rest of you public flip-flop wearers to Get Off My Lawn!
In the book and website about Warren G. Harding, his cousin Marsha Stewart has written a very insightful book: “Death by Blackness."
Here is an excerpt:
"We passed the black and white photograph to each other looking at the morbid gray mist above his head. There was a ghostly spirit like figure toppling his head as it got caught on the edge of the photo. He had finally been set free from his mental (Black man image) torment. We passed it[the photo] along until everybody had a chance to see it...."
Warren G. Harding won the 1920 Presidential Election by a landslide. He was popular beyond belief, but just before his death he was dubbed: “corrupt, incompetent, spineless and lacking the ability to speak authoritatively about public questions.”
Warren G. Harding's presidency was also one of total disrespect.
"Harding's nomination and election proved the old adage that anyone could become president.""This Negro couldn't be lynched like the other Negroes--not a public display."
I believe that is why he was eliminated mysteriously...

An open dialog that may or may not touch upon such questions as: Can we at least agree that U.S. Constitution is worth preserving, defending, and even extending to less free societies? How does Federalism view massive industry bailouts? Can authentic compassionate conservativism coexist with Capitalism++, or are they functionally equivalent?
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution originally consisted of seven Articles. The first three Articles embody the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislature, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judiciary, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. The fourth and sixth Articles frame the doctrine of federalism, describing the relationship between State and State, and between the several States and the federal government. The fifth Article provides the procedure for amending the Constitution. The seventh Article provides the procedure for ratifying the Constitution.
The Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and ratified by conventions in eleven States. It went into effect on March 4, 1789.
Since the Constitution was adopted, it has been amended twenty-seven times. The first ten amendments (along with two others that were not ratified at the time) were proposed by Congress on September 25, 1789, and were ratified by the necessary three-fourths of the States on December 15, 1791.These first ten amendments are known as the Bill of Rights.
The Constitution is interpreted, supplemented, and implemented by a large body of constitutional law. The Constitution of the United States was the first constitution of its kind, and has influenced the constitutions of many other nations.
