One Milo SARS CoV-2 IgG IgM SmartRapid™

One Milo is now taking orders for its COVID-19 IgG IgM Smart-tech enabled qualitative immunoassay for the rapid detection of IgG and IgM antibodies to COVID-19 in human finger prick whole blood specimens.

One Milo’s proprietary smart-tech enabled technology seamlessly reports the test to the cloud where medical professionals can review results in real-time in centralized locations from anytime and anywhere point-of-care testing. The ecosystem includes clinical analytics for all tests. Results read at Ten Minutes.

Labs cannot conveniently and economically provide point-of-care testing for chronic care management or address the globalization of infectious diseases. Inconvenience prevents the monitoring of wellbeing in order to change behavior and improve health. …

Verōnika Upstairs at Fotografiska

“Where you gonna run to” lyrics of Felix Da Housecat’s ‘Sinnerman’ reloop.

Verōnika, the patron saint of photography is upstairs. That’s where I go.

Verōnika’s ceiling reaches infinitely. Wide apertures of windows allow flattering light to run through the grand European style dining room.

I walk through the bar and past the hostess who briefly looks up and through me. She then nods her head down ignoring me as if were a ghost as she returns to prodding into a tablet with her index fingers.

The dining room reminds me of the paradox that is New York City: so many people jammed up against each other creates obstacles for us to meaningfully connect. Two-by-two close seating construction is the perfect example. For the very purpose of commerce, everyone is seated too intimately next to a stranger and in opposing-party style to their guest. …

Prologue

‘Recursion is the repeated application of a recursive procedure or definition. A recursion occurs when a thing is defined in terms of itself or of its type. The most common application of recursion is in mathematics and computer science, where a function being defined is applied within its own definition.’

…and I know this because I copied that and I spent the better part of the summer of nineteen demystifying the subject for myself and ten year old son, Rabbit. He is my only entouragist who I exert mind control over and he is usually found stumbling over every movement I make. He’s definitely the one (“1”) I most fuss about. …

Two Vanishing Points up the Linear Plane of the Street

Amanda and I are standing in the stillness of a cobbled sea of stones on a wide street in SoHo, New York. Store front windows reflect us against a sharp sky. Arctic white clouds perpetually stream from window to window like a ticker tape to two vanishing points up the linear plane of the street.

Amanda is wrapped in a cashmere cardigan tied into her waist. Each time we kiss, another one of her appears. There is now a scattering of Amanda’s around us, each lucid, polite and smiling.

Amanda turns my cheek away from looking around at them to looking into her and then she snaps her fingers and they all disappear. When I try to kiss her again, her hand lifts to my chest to pause me. …

A record number of US patients died from flu last year, with 80 000 deaths recorded in 2017–18.

In the early hours of a recent Sunday morning, my son woke me, complaining of a high temperature. A spoonful of sugary antipyretic had us hoping for the best. Thirty hours later and with some extraordinary parental diligence, he was diagnosed with Influenza Flu B virus. Although well within the time-frame for an Antiretroviral to be most effective, this thirty hour window could have represented a major deterioration in his respiratory system. In hindsight, there’s a lot more I would do.

Laboratory or doctor’s office diagnostics are inefficient for clinical and economic reasons. Chronic care patients need to visit a lab for the most routine of tests. A visit to the doctor is intermediated by a referral to a lab which takes days for results to be available. Laboratory testing does not provide options for early detection or to monitor general wellness so that one can change behavior to improve health outcomes. The globalization of infectious diseases cannot easily be monitored at the point-of-care. Centralized Laboratory testing is expensive, inconvenient and requires too much human component. …
