      It would be more than nice... It would be just.

      RB2014 should have full access ASAP. A travesty of justice.

      It's just the way the system is working right now and in my opinion it is more about a lack of societal priorities. There are single cars, like the Porsche 918 Spyder, that cost enough to push drugs into clinical trials. Instead of having empathy for suffering people, like helping them is a major priority, many very successful people take their spoils and spoil themselves.

      Look at this wrist watch:

      Truly a nation in Crisis.

      Materialism and consumption gone mad.
      A spiritual crisis I doubt we will come out of...

      Praying for RB2014 and all sufferers... Hang tight folks.

      I can say this, I have still been slowly experiencing a day by day reduction in my tinnitus. Today, so far, I haven't even heard it except for a couple half second bursts of fleeting tinnitus. I am happy. I feel normal right now. I feel like I have been released from a torture dungeon. ALL OF US DESERVE TO BE RELEASED FROM THIS.

      The time for political activism regarding accelerated testing and release of neurotrophic and hair cell regenerative drugs, and neuromodulation devices, PRP treatments, or anything that may help us, is now. This is an emergency. Complacency is unacceptable.

      Probably doesn't mean much, but if you look at their website:

      https://www.frequencytx.com/news-events/press-releases.php

      You can see they have hired a PR firm, "Scient" rather than media inquires being given a direct Frequency Therapeutics line like before.

      As someone suffering from extreme confirmation bias I am interpreting this as good news.

      I would be all over that right now. I literally have nothing to lose.

      20 to 30 dB would get me back into hearing aids that actually help. I'd be happy with that. I would consider that a good result. Right now all we can do is guess though.

      thanks for the support everyone!!!

      There is nothing wrong with capitalism. If we had real money, we would selfishly cure tinnitus ourselves. Anybody can truly buy that watch if they wanted it bad enough. It's easier than ever before to make money with so many opportunities present before us. Will it still be insanely difficult for the average person? Yes. But that's because they're juggling university or kids or work with their hobbies and free time instead of going full out on a project for 2-3 years and becoming a master at their one expertise.

      The only reason I find acceptable that one is unable to afford luxury goods or a crazy lifestyle is bad health. Tinnitus fits into that.

      The people who are buying the Porsche 918s and AP's are also the same ones who might just save our butts, by investing millions through venture capital into most of the privately held companies we're eagerly waiting on.

      I think what they are trying to say is we'd appreciate it if they would put a little more money in places that would make huge differences for a lot of people instead of putting that same amount of money into one thing that would only make a minor difference for themselves.

      Could you kindly refresh my memory please as to when and where they will release their results? Their website references a “major otolaryngology event in 2019”. What event would that be?

      I don't think ownership of a posh car offsets the benefits offered by strongly linking customer perceived value to price, incentive of open competition (in so far as it is) within the healthcare market, the attachment of measurable value to information gained and the benefit of expediting technological proliferation/specialisation and in turn research efforts. Indeed, as indicated above, luxury items provide a much needed incentive for those unafflicted to sink enormous amounts of time and investment into helping us (and yes, by extension themselves), when instead time might be spent with their family or other ventures/hobbies. Such benefits are significant and should not go unmentioned.

      Whilst the above list of positives is not a full defence of the system... It does in fact seem that the biggest obstacles to our ideals are the regulations and boundaries inevitably imposed in even greater rigour as substitute incentives by controlling interests in any alternative system. It is these boundaries that need to be reduced. This means a MORE capitalism for a freed market.

      Dr. Bimbo. Pathetic.

      I merely made the point that there is tons of money out there being spent on nonsense that could go to R & D for medicines that could help millions of people and you just have to bring him up? What is your problem?

      What I find to be more of a travesty is the complete disregard for ear safety and hearing loss prevention. Chainsaws at 116+ dB and hearing protection rated at 30 dB when it really only gives 11.5 dB reduction. Hearing tests only going up to 8 kHz when we have hearing up to 22 kHz.

      So most machines, concerts, work environments are causing hearing loss and damage, the hearing protection is advertised to give protection 2 to 3 times higher than it provides and the medical system tells everyone their hearing tests are perfect but they only test the bottom third or half of our hearing range.

      Never forget that the US had regulations on this back in 1972!

      https://ballotpedia.org/Noise_Control_Act_of_1972

      In a statement announcing his decision to sign Noise Control Act and other bills, Nixon said:[3][4]

      While a number of municipal governments have moved to control the rising levels of noise in our country--particularly in major urban centers--many of the most significant sources of noise move in interstate commerce and can be effectively regulated only at the Federal level. The new act will enable the Environmental Protection Agency to set limits on the amount of noise permitted both from trucks, buses, and railroad trains operating in interstate commerce and from a variety of newly manufactured products such as jackhammers and compressors, automobiles, motorcycles, snowmobiles, motors and engines.[5]
      —President Richard Nixon[4

      EPA Administrator William Ruckelshaus said of the law, "We now have the authority to come to grips with an environmental problem that affects millions of people. The previous lack of this power represented a serious gap in our environmental authorities."[6]

      The EPA set a 24-hour exposure level of 70 decibels as the level that would prevent measurable hearing loss in individuals over a lifetime.

      But who needs regulations, right?
      Or the EPA for that matter? :)

      I believe the Act was reversed in the eighties, under Reagan. Economy first?


      About its demise:

      EPA has a handful of noise rules on the books, such as a limit on noise from motorcycles. They all date back decades, though, because the White House cut funding for the program under President Reagan, and it has never been restored.

      The Office of Noise Abatement and Control got the ax in the early 1980s, a time -- not too different from today -- when the economy was in the gutter and many on Capitol Hill wanted to slash away at red tape. The noise rules were slammed by critics like syndicated columnist James Kilpatrick, who called it "bureaucracy gone berserk."

      "Metaphorically speaking, if you will forgive me, this is garbage," Kilpatrick wrote at the time.

      Critics of federal noise rules have argued that state laws and local ordinances can handle noisy lawnmowers, air conditioners and highway traffic on their own. If the noise becomes a nuisance, the police can start writing tickets, they say.

      But in the past few years in Europe, new empirical studies have led health experts to pay a new level of attention to noise pollution. The European Union already has a directive ordering local governments to reduce noise, and last year, a panel of environmental officials from six European countries ranked traffic noise as the continent's second-most pressing threat to public health, after air pollution.

      My problem is that you’re labeling people as greedy because they make a lot of money and buy luxury items, a little narrow minded in my opinion.

      You don’t buy things for yourself and your family that are considered luxury?

      I buy stuff that is good quality and utilitarian. But basically no. My wife and I would be considered the upper end of middle class and neither one of us are materialistic at all. We buy organic food, but that's food.

      I grew up around some very rich people. My grandmother was a nanny for a child in the Ingram family.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_Rivers_Ingram

      My mom had just approached a net worth of about a million dollars doing real estate before the US housing market crash in 2007-2008.

      Although I was around big money, big houses, horses, farms, and played with super rich kids, I could care less about any of that.

      My wife grew up in one of the poorest counties in the country and lived with her grandmother in a literal shack with an outhouse.

      Neither one of us really care about luxury at all.

      Without citing specific examples, we have actually spent a lot of time and money helping people in need. To us, loving our fellow humans and helping people regardless of self sacrifice trumps spoiling ourselves.

      That being said, I'd love to have a Tesla Model S. ;)

      It is luxury, but it does have the environmental benefit of being electric. A fair trade off. Everyone deserves to treat themselves every once in a while; but the way our nation is, big business wants everyone to treat themselves every time they see an ad. I would know, marketing is my background. So yes, there is a problem with our nation. As of late, big business has had too much leniency. Have you ever seen a target ad on your phone seconds right after discussing something in real life on that subject? That's our privacy being sacrificed for "targeted ads". It's scary. Their algorithms know us better than we know ourselves.
