Las Vegas — In spite of reports of people backing out of attending CES, Allen Hirsch, founder and creator of HANDL, a leading smartphone accessory company, will go ahead with his plans to man booth #60535 in Eureka Park at the Venetian hotel. Allen Hirsch (while fully vaccinated) has just finished his second bout with Covid several weeks ago.

Hirsch recently was forced suddenly to switch from Creative Founder to Operational CEO when his previous partnership vanished abruptly back in July without orienting Hirsch to any aspect of operations and logistics. “I had no experience in this field at all.” Nonetheless in the spirit of HANDL-ing it, Hirsch was able to keep the ship afloat and salvage relationships and supply chain flow to major retailers such as Target.

“HANDL is excited to unveil its new HANDL Jewelry line, which includes handmade pieces by the artist/founder. “This is revolutionary to the fashion/hand jewelry/cell accessory market,” added Hirsch. Coupled with HANDL’s comfortable and versatile elastic and brace system, this is by far the most useful and attractive product in its class. HANDL jewelry is magSafe compatible and removable so you can match your mood or outfit or accessories at will. This will no doubt turn heads and hands going forward.




Cave Syndrome: A Continuing Problem

Just when we thought it was a little safe to resume some of our outdoor activities, we have to take cover again. Hello Omicron. 


Dr. Arthur Bregman, former Chief of Psychiatry of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital for several decades, and now head of the private psychiatric practice of Bregman Medical Group in Coral Gables, Florida, claims “We are seeing a major increase in cases of ‘Cave Syndrome.’ That’s the mental health problem afflicting huge numbers of the population around the world. When I coined the term I had no idea how many people would be traumatized by the pandemic that they stay home all the time because they are scared of the outside world. This is happening all over the world.”


In the US, 30% of us adults say it will take them at least a year from now before they feel safe again to leave their homes.

Cave syndrome is an agoraphobia based disorder related to OCD (obsessive comptoulsive disorder) and PTSD.

But there’s a difference. Regular agoraphobia has a lot of different triggers keeping sufferers out of contact with the outside world. But Cave syndrome is specifically caused by pandemic fears. It’s borne of uncertainty from the virus. The compulsive behavior that follows is essentially staying at home even though the rest of the world is springing into action. 


Dr. B says some folks have severe cases where they can barely leave the house, they don’t even want to see family. The holidays was a real reckoning for these sufferers. It’s hard to see the compulsion when anxiety about sickness comes from a survival instinct that is present in all humans. In this case, the instinct has gone into overdrive.
