Stock Market Roller Coaster

To say the stock market is on a wild roller coaster ride would be an understatement, with the close on Thursday representing the 4th biggest single day point day in the history of the Dow.

That 1862-point drop would have been the biggest ever had it not been for three COVID-19 drops in March—eclipsing the drops of the Great Depression in terms of points and even giving it some close competition in the form of a single-day percentage drop.

No Alcohol Recommendation Made By American Cancer Society

Updated cancer prevention guidelines should be of interest to all American adults explains the director of the American Association for Critical Illness Insurance (AACII).

"The American Cancer Society now recommends that it is best not to drink alcohol," says Jesse Slome, director of the organization. AACII focuses on educating consumers about the importance of planning for the likelihood of a cancer diagnosis, a heart attack or stroke.

"Alcoholic beverage consumption caused 5.6% of all incident cancer cases and 4% of all cancer deaths among males and females in the United States," Slome notes.

Also attributable to alcohol consumption are an estimated 40.9% of oral cavity/pharynx cancers. In addition, 23.2% of larynx cancers, 21.6% of liver cancers, 21% of esophageal cancers, and 12.8% of colorectal cancers (2014 data). Among women, 16.4% (ie, 39,060) of all breast cancers were attributable to alcohol consumption.

The Value of Wearing a Mask

Let's face it. None of us likes wearing a mask. Either they are too tight, too loose, or too hot, and always, they are uncomfortable. After speaking with a brilliant CEO-friend of mine from California who refuses to wear one, unless he is somewhere that requires it, I was motivated to look into the value of wearing of mask. What I suspected was correct and those well-researched facts appear below. This Herman Trend Alert is another in our COVID-19 series aimed at giving you hope and help. In study after study, wearing masks reduces individual and community rates of disease. In this Alert, I will detail some of those studies.

Why wear a mask?

Masks serve as barriers. They keep us from infecting others and others from infecting us. When we cough, or sneeze or even just talk, we launch droplets into the air. The tiny versions (aerosol) can hang in the air for hours, possibly causing infection, especially---but not exclusively, in enclosed and poorly ventilated spaces.

Do masks really make a difference?

The short answer is, "Yes." A recent animal study from Hong Kong University showed significant results of masking. When no hamster cages were masked, the infection rate from diseased hamsters to non-diseased hamsters was 67 percent. When only the uninfected cage was masked, the infection rate dropped to 33 percent; and when both cages were masked, the infection rate was a mere 17 percent. However, the best part was that the animals that did get infected had lowers levels of virus than the animals with no masking. Moreover, Australian data scientist Jeremy Howard identified 34 papers showing their effectiveness (Masks4All.com).

The New Normal Is the New Unknown

The year that the COVID 19 virus emerged from its yet-unknown hiding place and became the scourge of the world has brought major change. Cultures are wondering about the embrace, the hug, the double or triple kiss of the cheek, the handshake, and the high-five. But we are wondering about more than greetings.

The dilemma of the virus has forced a rethinking of office, transportation, and seating, in particular, to where some companies may wonder why have offices at all. Should the open office be abandoned and replaced with the former "walled-office" office space?

Each employee can see each other and a physical see-through wall will be standard if workstations cannot be placed six feet apart. The emotional cut-off between workers cannot be denied.

The six-foot distancing requirement, too, will not prove to be the answer. Although six feet has been viewed as the standard for virus-spewed speech protection, it isn't foolproof.

Studies have shown that aerosolized virus can remain in the air for up to three hours; six feet apart does nothing to protect us. A slight movement of the air from a co-worker passing by or the air conditioning airflow will do an outstanding job of spreading the virus beyond six feet.

Stealth Wealth Hiding in Plain Sight

For security purposes, the Great Recession served as an excellent training course, a primer, for the wealthy and how to seamlessly blend in with the "unwashed" without arousing suspicion from the lower socio-economic, potentially resentful, desperate and possibly dangerous citizens if the proverbial excrement hit the fan such as a global economic meltdown. As the socio-economic inequity widens even further during and after Covid-19, the resentment and blowback against the wealthy will reach epic proportions.

For the savvier elements of the upper-class, they've dusted off the playbook and added some more chapters specific to a global pandemic environment. For those relatively untouched financially by the market's wild gyrations, or perhaps who have profited obscenely by it, they've revived the Great Recession stealth wealth tactics of unabashed shopping. Hunkered in their urban or suburban gated-communities they usually send their personal shoppers to boutiques to pick-up and bring the designer merchandise bag in plain bags so as not to upset their "struggling" neighbors who have gone from billionaires to merely multi-millionaires and are actively downsizing their lifestyles.

So get ready to meet the stealthy wealthy – if you can find them. – because their low profile is so deep under the radar that it's a de facto witness protection program.

Pulling out all the stops for a COVID-19 vaccine

This HND piece puts the spotlight on an interesting approach to developing a COVID-19 vaccine: DNA medicine. The idea here is that DNA plasmids are introduced via a special device into the cell. There they trigger T cells to do their thing against the invading COVID virus. The company behind this unique approach is Inovio Pharmaceuticals.

Inovio has had some real success with MERS, caused by a related coronavirus, and initial studies look good for COVID. At present, Inovio is having some issues with one of its sub-contractors, and that is the subject of litigation, which hopefully should be resolved soon.

4 Ways HR Will Be Affected By The Long-Lasting Effects Of Coronavirus

1. Changes in Software

Where previously HR departments would've spent countless hours sifting through staff paperwork and previously relied on pen and paper are now realizing the benefits of HR software that is cloud-based.

Easing the pressure of chasing staff members to send over files or post forms, using cloud software is incredibly popular, even in the most traditional of businesses.

Demand for instant messaging software, such as Slack, and video conferencing, such as Zoom, have surged, proving to be a vital cog in how we communicate internally in 2020.

While businesses may have previously out-off investing in software such as this, the reliability on them is now there for the world to see. It is proving that more physical meetings and communication will now be removed, replaced by this instant chat & video. This will lead to reducing travel costs, likely benefits to mental well-being, and of course, reduced carbon emissions.

Three Ways to Avoid Making Mistakes During a Crisis

In this week's episode of his "Crisis Ahead" podcast, crisis management expert, consultant, and author Edward Segal discusses three ways companies can avoid making mistakes during crisis situations. The video version of the podcast can be viewed at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AK-G9CrJIPw The audio version can be accessed at the Apple, Google, Stitcher, and Listennotes podcast sites. The link to the new episode on Podbean.com podcast site is


"An important rule of crisis management is not to say or do anything during a crisis could make matters worse, generate negative publicity, or prolong the crisis," Segal said in the podcast. "But when trying to deal with a crisis, people can say and do things for which they have to apologize, explain, or wish they never said or did in the first place," he observed.

Segal cited recent apologies by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore, and US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for what they said about New York City police, the murder of George Floyd, and the Obama administration's plans to deal with a pandemic, respectively. In the podcast Segal outlines three steps organizations can take to help ensure they won't have to apologize for what they say or do during a crisis.

The "Crisis Ahead" podcast is produced by Heartcastmedia.com

Each weekly episode of "Crisis Ahead" looks at how companies can respond to, manage, and recover from a crisis, or what people can learn from how organizations and individuals in the news are dealing with crisis situations. The podcast is based on Segal's new book on crisis management — "Crisis Ahead: 101 Ways to Prepare for and Bounce Back from Disasters, Scandals, and Other Emergencies" (Nicholas Brealey). It is now available from Amazon as an ebook at this link:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0827JK83Q/ref=tmm_kin_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=&sr= "Crisis Ahead" will be released as a paperback on June 16.
