Beyond the unprecedented threat to public health, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged nearly all aspects of our lives, including one of the most basic – how we communicate. NO MORE LIP READING In particular, SOCIAL DISTANCING AND THE USE OF FACEMASKS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO HEAR other speakers – by about 30%, according to studies of people with normal hearing. But if you’re one of THE 48 MILLION AMERICANS WITH HEARING LOSS, UNDERSTANDING PEOPLE WHEN THEY’RE WEARING MASKS CAN BE NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. And it’s not just about muffled voices – masks obscure the ability to read lips and facial cues, while social distancing means YOU CAN’T GET CLOSER TO HEAR BETTER. TIPS ON COMMUNICATING BETTER IN A MASKED WORLD According to Eric Branda, Ph D. AuD, Director of Research Audiology for Signia, there are strategies that can help communication at this time, if you live or work with someone with hearing loss. These include: · Facing the person you’re talking to · Using approved clear face shields to allow the other person to read lips and facial cues · Rephrasing speech rather than repeating the same words or shouting · Writing down information to minimize communication errors TECHNOLOGY FOR THE HEAR AND NOW Hearing aid innovation leader Signia has introduced two key technologies to address the very specific challenges posed by the current COVID-19 crisis, making it the right device and the right time. These include: “MASK” SETTING: This new hearing aid setting improves audibility for those communicating with someone wearing a face covering. REMOTE CARE: Signia has also created Remote Care, a breakthrough remote hearing care program enabling hearing care professionals to prescribe, fit and fine-tune hearing aids remotely. Remote Care combines SIGNIA TELECARE – an industry-leading tele-audiology solution – and a NEW AI-BASED VIRTUAL ASSISTANT for complete remote service and support, along with enhanced ordering and delivery options.

Lessons from the Len Master Successful people tend to have certain traits in common: determination, focus, the ability to work hard and a set of patterns that they have refined over their lifespans. But some people have an advantage; they have a parent or mentor that can deliver a world of wisdom and avoid the mistakes that come from trial and error. Ron Zayas, the author of this book, had that advantage and shares it with his readers. The book captures knowledge passed on from Ron’s quirky father Len (the “Len Master” in the title). Using family dinners, long nights playing chess and numerous analogies, Len instructs his son on the key strategies and attributes necessary to be success at work and life. Using short, humorous stories from his life — combined with flashbacks to the actual lessons his father provided — Ron explores ways to sell better, get more promotions, negotiate more effectively, and have the courage and strength to be who you are. All the while, the book focuses on the ethical way to succeed. The book is divided into three sections: how to succeeding at work, learning valuable negotiation skills, and important life lessons that will help make you be a better person, spouse or parent. This quick, enjoyable read has won praise from business leaders, critics, business school professors and every day people. Along the way, you will also explore funny and insightful stories from Ron’s life growing up as a Cuban immigrant, and his path to heading off to college at 16, becoming editor of his college paper by 18, being elected student body senate president, and then starting his first company out of college at just 20 years of age. Ron also explains how he implemented his father’s advice as he went on to start multiple successful companies.

CPSC’s Pool Safely Campaign Leader, Nikki Fleming talks with Mark Alyn providing tips for swimming at home, especially since due to ongoing public health concerns about the coronavirus, summer swim season will likely look a bit different this year. Fleming shares, “Hundreds of children die each year in pools and spas. We need to do more because drowning is still the leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 1-4, and the second leading cause of death for children ages 5-14. Of additional importance is the fact that minority communities continue to face unique water safety challenges with 64 percent of African-American children and 45 percent of Hispanic children possessing poor swimming ability, compared to 40 percent of Caucasian children. This puts minority children at greater risk of drowning.”

Social anxiety disorder (SAD) affects as many as 20 million Americans and is the second most commonly diagnosed anxiety disorder.1,2 A person with SAD feels symptoms of extreme anxiety or fear in certain social situations, such as meeting new people, dating, being on a job interview, answering a question in class, or making small talk to a cashier in a store or a networking event at work. Doing everyday things in front of people - such as eating or drinking in front of others or using a public restroom - also causes anxiety or fear. The person is afraid that he or she will be humiliated, judged, and rejected. SAD can significantly compromise academic, social and work life and can predispose individuals to other anxiety disorders, depression and substance use disorders.3 SAD usually starts during youth. Without treatment, social anxiety disorder can last for many years or a lifetime and prevent a person from reaching his or her full potential. VistaGen Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mark A. Smith visits with Mark Alyn to discuss a new medication for SAD.
