    Talk to anyone about the history of the trucking industry and one topic will always come up, regulations. Just how does an industry that prides itself on undergoing a huge government period of deregulation have so many regulations? It seems that there is a new regulation proposed every time the government approves a new bill. So how do we stay on top of the regulations and how can we continue to conduct a profitable business when it seems as though "Big Brother" is always looking over our shoulders?

    FDA Regulation of Mobile Apps

    in Health

    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.

    ADHD Emotional Self-Regulation: Live, Unplugged, and Real

    in Self Help

    Emotions are as much a part of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder as attention is, according to Dr. Russell Barkley. In this episode we interview Stacey, play a prerecorded clip of her revealing her emotions, live and in the moment, and having difficulty regulating them. What we learn actually helps her to self-regulate her emotions. If you have ADHD, struggle with self-regulation, or are just an emotional being, you won’t want to miss this show. It is real, unplugged, and live... so real we couldn’t just make it up.

    Regulation on Ranchers, Beer Brewers

    in Politics Conservative

    The proposed rule, which is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act, would tighten regulations on pet food and animal feed "by requiring animal food facilities to take preventive steps to ensure that food for animals is safe," according to the FDA.


    The controversy surrounds the rule's effect on the longtime practice of beer brewers giving their spent grain, the malted barley left over after the beer brewing process, to neighboring ranchers and dairy farmers. The practice serves two purposes: to help the brewers get rid of millions of tons of leftover product, and to provide a free, nutritious food source for animals at local farms.


    Under the new regulation, the practice would be outlawed, unless breweries go through expensive and time-consuming measures to ensure the grain is up to regulation.


    "The proposal is part of the Food Safety Modernization Act's larger effort to modernize the food safety system for the 21st century and focus public and private efforts on preventing food safety problems, rather than relying primarily on responding to problems after the fact," wrote the FDA in a press release.

    2-29-16 REGULATION UPDATE: Alice Alvey, SVP of Indecomm, to review HMDA changes

    in Finance

    As most of you are aware, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) finalized the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) rule in October 2015.  With all the focus on TRID, many are not aware that the new HMDA rule adds 25 new data points and modifies 14 others in addition to the existing 9 data fields that were already required.  Additionally, lenders now must begin to start reporting data on other types of loans such as reverse mortgages and home equity lines of credit.  


    To help us sort out all of these changes, we have asked ALICE ALVEY, SVP of Indecomm Global Services and a regular on this program, to walk us through many of these changes and tell us what lenders are doing to prepare.  


    Created BY mortgage professional FOR mortgage professionals, Lykken on Lending is a weekly 60-minute radio program styled “podcast” hosted by mortgage veteran, David Lykken. Joining the program each week is Joe Farr with a MARKET UPDATE, Alice Alvey providing a LEGISLATIVE UPDATE, Paul Muolo of IMFnews.com & Sam Garcia of MortgageDaily.com giving a quick MTG NEWS HEADLINES update and Andy Schell (a/k/a "The Profit Doctor") providing tips on FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT.  This is followed by the HOT TOPIC segment, which is an in depth discussion about one of the hottest topics related to the mortgage industry.

    In this episode of AKANFO NANASOM, we address the function of ab (heart, will) in relation to ab (cessation, purification). The spiritual ab (heart) is the spiritual organ through which we equlibrate our life-force energy. This is critically important with regard regulating our sex-drive and hunger-drive so that we are not overcome by lust and greed - the negative effects of which can manifest not only physically but in all areas of life.
