In today's show, the Dr's discuss: 1. How do you explain, in the context of evolutionary psychology, women who pursue polyamory? It seems like they are doing a good job of beating the instructions dealt them by their genes. Alternatively is polyamory is just the new, politically-correct way of cheating on your spouse and potentially ending an unwanted relationship? 2.  I am a female from Canada trapped in the country for now.. Currently, with the vaccine mandate, I can't sit inside a restaurant or even join an outdoors sports group. This makes meeting people and dating rather impossible. Should I try my luck just to get out into the market. If so, should I display my vaccine status? My date will find out pretty soon when I say I can only go on a hike date.  3. I've been in a "magic 10%" relationship for almost 2 years. He treats me like a princess, but what robs me of peace of mind is that he has a sister my age who is a single mother. She often asks him for help, money, babysitting, at some point she even asked him to live with her. He refused, but felt guilty afterwards. Is me sharing my man with his sister a sufficient reason to break up? It feels bad both to be in this relationship as well as to end this relationship. It makes me feel guilty as well, because there is not much of partners fault. Is there anything that can be done? 4. Does having a surrogate mother drive a subconscious rift between husband and wife because certain neural networks were not tripped in the female brain? And is there any solution that can trip these circuits so the natural attachments are made? 5. I've learned about the harsh realities of being a new parent and the incredible lack of sleep involved. If sleep is so vital, why would nature design such intense sleep deprivation for mothers when raising young children? It seems so counterintuitive.

EP. 67 Successful Business Leaders Make Decisions Based On Employee Supremacy

When making strategic decisions, who's supreme? Shareholders or employees? On today's podcast, Andy Alsop, CEO of The Receptionist, shares his enthusiasm for building a truly hybrid company where the focus and attention is on prioritizing employees over shareholders. What is Employee Supremacy?Shareholder supremacy, a term coined by Milton Friedman in the 70's and 80's, was basically about decision making. Under shareholder supremacy, leaders are responsible for increasing the value of shares to each one of the company's investors, and every decision is based around that mission.For example, under shareholder supremacy, if you're trying to determine how much to invest in  employee benefits (an expense that is seen as primarily negatively impacting  the bottom line) you naturally want to drive the cost of benefits down to the lowest possible amount. You would choose the bare minimum necessary to continue to attract employees so that you can increase profits and thus shareholder value.Alternatively, with an Employee Supremacy mindset, you want to increase the amount of benefits that your employees have. Doing this helps your employees feel secure, feel that thecompany trusts them, and gives them a sense of ease knowing that they aren't going to have to worry about whether they can make ends meet in the case of an emergency because those benefits are there for them.The result: your employees feel valued, safe and have greater trust in the  company they work for. And when employees feel trusted and trust the company, they make decisions that are in the best interest of the company, allowing them to better serve their customers.  Under the employee supremacy mindset, when leaders make decisions, they increase productivity with their company, give better service to their customers, and create trusting teams that help achieve their company's mission and goals. In the end both methods drive shareholder value but focusing on employee supremacy drives shareholder value more quickly.Decision Making Examples from an “Employee Supremacy” MindsetWhen COVID hit, Andy and his leadership team did three things:Implemented a COVID Family Travel Program--The company paid to send young, single workers to fly home to their families, Improved Health Benefits--They eliminated insurance premium contributions for employees, and increased the contribution towards families. Instituted the company's Just Cause--Focusing on the company's employees and its community, they have changed how the leaders make decisions.Because of these three decisions based on “Employee Supremacy,” they learned that making all of these decisions during a pandemic the team knew they were with a company that was focused, not on short-term results, but on the “long game.”  They created what Simon Sinek describes as “Trusting Teams.”The Role of Company Values and a Just Cause in Employee SupremacyAt The Receptionist, their values are an acronym called FABRIC (Fun, Authentic, Bold, Respectful, Innovative and Collaborative). Andy says the important part of core values is you actually have to live them. Could potential candidates who are seeking a position at your company actually see those values being lived out? During the pandemic their company chose to fall back on those values and really focused on making sure that these values became a part of daily-life working at their company. Read the full summary here

[REBROADCAST FROM September 22, 2021] Chef Mina Stone, who helms Mina's at MoMA PS1, joins us to discuss her latest cookbook, Lemon, Love & Olive Oil, which combines her Greek and Jewish heritage into hearty, citrusy recipes.   CACIO E PEPE–INSPIRED KALE SALAD This is my version of having the idea of a decadent pasta, in salad form. It has the flavor components of a cacio e pepe, set against the backdrop of a hearty forest of green kale. The kale stands up to the challenge, providing a healthy vehicle for the tangy salty cheese, crunchy hazelnuts, and spicy black pepper. Serves 4 to 6 6 cups (400 g) lacinato or curly green kale (about 2 bunches)Extra virgin olive oilJuice and zest of 1 lemonSalt and freshly ground black pepper½ cup (40 g) grated pecorino cheese½ cup (65 g) hazelnuts, toasted (see page 9) and chopped Cut out the thick middle rib of the kale leaves or tear it off with your hands. Layer a few kale leaves on top of each other and cut into bite-size pieces. Repeat until all the kale is done. (Alternatively, you can cut the kale into ribbon-size pieces for a “pasta” look.) Put the kale in a serving bowl and massage it with enough olive oil to coat each leaf. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, a sprinkle of salt, and lots of freshly ground black pepper. When you are ready to serve, toss the kale with most of the cheese and most of the hazelnuts and garnish with the rest. Finish with freshly ground black pepper and serve.

[REBROADCAST FROM September 15, 2021] The James Beard Award-winning Sahadi's market has been a local favorite for over a century. Now, with the new cookbook, Flavors of the Sun: The Sahadi's Guide to Understanding, Buying, and Using Middle Eastern Ingredients, anyone can enjoy the flavors of Sahadi's at home. Cookbook author and Sahadi's co-owner and culinary director Christine Sahadi Whelan joins us to discuss.   Moroccan Marinated Chicken Breasts This recipe is yet another example of how the rich blend of spices in ras el hanout can give a simple preparation depth and nuance with very little effort. Marinating chicken in yogurt tenderizes the meat and keeps it juicy as it grills. Serve this with a room-temperature grain dish, like the Millet Pilaf with Almonds and Feta on page 115, and a cooling salad of Persian cucumbers. SERVES 4 1/2 cup [120 g] plain Greek yogurt, full or reduced fat1 Tbsp ras el hanout1 tsp fine sea salt1 tsp hot paprika1 tsp hot red pepper flakes4 large bone-in, skin-on chicken breast halvesChopped fresh cilantro, for garnish In a medium bowl, stir together the yogurt, ras el hanout, salt, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Add the chicken and turn to coat thoroughly with the seasonings. Cover the bowl and marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill. When hot, mound most of the coals to one side. Place the chicken breasts over the hottest part of the fire, skin side down, and cook until the skin has developed a bit of char and the fat has rendered. Turn the breasts skinside up, move to the cooler side of the grill, and cover the grill. Cook the chicken, turning once or twice, until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes. Alternatively, you can prepare this in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350°F [180°C] and arrange the chicken in a baking dish large enough to hold them without touching. Cover and bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for an additional 15 minutes. Garnish with the chopped cilantro. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Synopsis: This Thanksgiving (i.e. tomorrow) I'll be meeting up with my dad's family. Some I haven't seen in a few years; others, in a decade; others in two decades; still others, I've never met. I thought I wasn't nervous about this reunion, but the fact that I woke up this morning at 3:30am and couldn't stop thinking about it would suggest otherwise. I figured: What better way to process my mild anxiety than by recording an episode of The Stoic Jew Podcast about it? If this episode comes across as more meandering than usual, that's only because I was working it out on the spot, and I wanted to do it in one take.

This week Sam sits back down with Roger Bretherton to look at certainty and what Roger holds as his bedrock to his faith. The video version of this conversation can be found here on our YouTube channel 12 hours after the audio version goes live. Is a relational faith enough? Can it be pinned down? What would undermine this? Is there a circle that one can enter to start to know God? Is it someone's fault if they can't or don't believe in God? We close with a challenge for Roger to complete to push into this more effectively in the next conversation. *Note* I was wrong about where the verses about a hanged man being cursed are found in the OT, it's actually within Deuteronomy 21:22-23. *Note* Roger's Bio: Dr Roger Bretherton is Principal Lecturer for Enterprise in the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln.

Can MusclePharm Become a "Marketing Machine" Again?

Will the launch of energy drinks help MusclePharm diversify away from the challenging protein markets that left the "Athletes Company" badly beaten up this quarter? In the third quarter of 2021, MusclePharm (OTCMKTS: MSLP) saw its net sales decline 25.6% YoY. While that declining sales trend is alarming, it's nothing compared to gross margins that declined 3090 basis points YoY to 0.2%. So, why did MusclePharm lose $3.5M operationally (mostly stemming from COGs) this quarter? About half of MusclePharm's quarterly revenue is tied to Costco (key customer risk) merchandising its whey protein SKUs globally. Despite the whey protein costs doubling in 2021, MusclePharm is in a precarious position because they know how much other competitors want those merchandising slots. MusclePharm can't materially raise pricing or lay off the gas on promotional monies with the wholesale retailer. That is causing massive short-term profitability pressure that likely won't change throughout 2022. Alternatively, changing course with Costco strategy could create long-term business continuity risks if they decide to swap out MusclePharm for another competitor in the Health & Beauty Aids (HABA) merchandising section. This is all going on in the background when MusclePharm is launching into a new (and ultra-competitive) product category. It's important to remember that just because a brand has awareness within another active nutrition category at mainstream retailers like Costco, it doesn't mean the market instantly gives you the authority to be a platform brand across multiple categories at large physical retailers. MusclePharm is going to need to become a "marketing machine" again. This makes the profitability discussion even more complex.

The study, which compared the cost of seven sustainable diets to the current typical diet in 150 countries, using food prices from the World Bank's International Comparison Program, was published in The Lancet Planetary Health. It found that in high-income countries: Vegan diets were the most affordable and reduced food costs by up to one third. Vegetarian diets were a close second. Flexitarian diets with low amounts of meat and dairy reduced costs by 14%. By contrast, pescatarian diets increased costs by up to 2%. “We think the fact that vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian diets can save you a lot of money is going to surprise people,” says Dr. Marco Springmann, researcher on the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Food. “When scientists like me advocate for healthy and environmentally-friendly eating, it's often said we're sitting in our ivory towers promoting something financially out of reach for most people. This study shows it's quite the opposite. These diets could be better for your bank balance as well as for your health and…the planet.” Miguel Barclay, author of the bestselling “One Pound Meals” series of cookbooks, says, “I definitely agree that cutting down your meat, or cutting it out completely, will save you money. I've written seven budget cookbooks and have costed up hundreds of recipes, and without doubt vegan and vegetarian meals consistently come in at a much lower price than recipes with meat.” The study focused on whole foods and did not include highly-processed meat replacements or eating at restaurants or takeaways. The study also found that in lower income countries, such as on the Indian subcontinent and in sub-Saharan Africa, eating a healthy and sustainable diet would be up to a quarter cheaper than a typical Western diet, but at least a third more expensive than current diets. To analyze what options could improve affordability and reduce diet costs, the study looked at several policy options. It found that making healthy and sustainable diets affordable everywhere is possible within the next 10 years when economic development, especially in lower income countries, is paired with reductions in food waste and a climate and health-friendly pricing of foods. “Affording to eat a healthy and sustainable diet is possible everywhere, but requires political will,” according to Dr. Springmann. “Current low-income diets tend to contain large amounts of starchy foods and not enough of the foods we know are healthy. And the western-style diets, often seen as aspirational, are not only unhealthy, but also vastly unsustainable and unaffordable in low-income countries. Any of the healthy and sustainable dietary patterns we looked at are a better option for health, the environment, and financially, but development support and progressive food policies are needed to make them both affordable and desirable everywhere.” The study, “The global and regional costs of healthy and sustainable dietary patterns: a modeling study,” is published in The Lancet Planetary Health on 10 November 2021. Country-level results are available here. Green One Pound Meals by Miguel Barclay is published on 30 December. It features planet-friendly recipes and includes tips and ideas for shopping smart and avoiding food waste. Meta-analysis concludes resveratrol beneficially modulates glycemic control in diabetics Zagazig University and Suez Canal University (Egypt), October 29 2021.  Findings from a meta-analysis of clinical trials published on October 16, 2021 in Medicina Clinica (Barcelona) revealed an association between supplementing with resveratrol and improvements in glycemic control. “Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a progressive meta-inflammatory disorder, which induces micro and macrovascular complications,” Ibrahim A. Abdelhaleem and colleagues wrote. “Resveratrol is a nutraceutical known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.” “This systematic review and meta-analysis is the first to consider resveratrol's efficacy on glycemic and cardiometabolic parameters in patients with T2DM.” Sixteen randomized trials that included a total of 871 diabetic men and women were selected for the meta-analysis. The trials compared resveratrol to a placebo with or without concurrent antidiabetic medications or other drug treatment. Resveratrol doses of 500 milligrams or more were associated with lower fasting blood glucose, fasting serum insulin, insulin resistance, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and diastolic blood pressure in comparison with a placebo. Resveratrol was associated with a greater reduction in hemoglobin A1c (a marker of long-term glucose control) compared to a placebo in trials of three months duration. When HDL cholesterol levels were analyzed, resveratrol was superior to a placebo in trials of less than two months duration. Resveratrol was also associated with a reduction in systolic blood pressure compared to measurements obtained in the placebo group. Furthermore, triglycerides were lower in association with resveratrol in trials that lasted six to twelve months. “We concluded that resveratrol appropriately improved insulin sensitivity by decreasing insulin resistance, fasting blood glucose, fasting serum insulin, and hemoglobin A1c,” the authors concluded. “In addition, it improved other cardiometabolic parameters, including triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The most appropriate glycemic control effect was fulfilled when consumed for at least one month with doses of 500 mg or more.” Exercise linked to better mental health Kaiser Permanente Research, November 11, 2021 Kaiser Permanente research published on November 11 in Preventive Medicine showed people who exercised more during the initial lockdown period of the COVID-19 pandemic experienced less anxiety and depression than those who didn't exercise. It also showed that people who spent more time outdoors typically experienced lower levels of anxiety and depression than those who stayed inside. More than 20,000 people participated in the survey-based study from 6 regions served by Kaiser Permanente across the United States, which included Hawaii, Colorado, Georgia, and the mid-Atlantic states, as well as Southern and Northern California. “What these study findings tell us is that even during an active pandemic or other public health crisis, people should be encouraged to be physically active to help maintain their physical and mental health,” said the study's lead author Deborah Rohm Young, PhD, the director of the Division of Behavioral Research for the Kaiser Permanente Southern California Department of Research & Evaluation. “Parks and other nature areas should remain open during public health emergencies to encourage outdoor physical activity.” In March 2020, COVID-19 developed into a worldwide pandemic. With no known treatment, public health officials attempted to reduce its spread by limiting human interactions through stay-at-home policies. Businesses temporarily closed or changed their practices to prevent the spread of the virus, affecting the economy and many people's jobs. These stressful factors, along with fewer opportunities to socialize with friends and family, increased symptoms of depression and anxiety for many people. Since it is known that physical activity and time spent in nature are associated with improved mental health, researchers at Kaiser Permanente in Southern California sought to determine how exercise and time outdoors was associated with people's mental health during the height of the pandemic. In April 2020, researchers sent a series of COVID-19 surveys to more than 250,000 participants in the Kaiser Permanente Research Bank — a collection of lifestyle surveys, electronic health record data, and biospecimens, which Kaiser Permanente members volunteered. People who reported COVID-19 symptoms were not included in this analysis, resulting in 20,012 respondents. They each completed at least 4 surveys between April and July 2020. White women older than 50 accounted for a high proportion of the respondents. Most respondents said they were retired and generally adhered to the “safer-at-home” orders during the period of the survey. The study found that: Reports of anxiety and depression decreased over time Anxiety and depression scores were higher for females and younger people, and lower for Asian and Black people compared with white respondents Participants who reported no physical activity reported the highest depression and anxiety compared to people who had exercised Spending less time outdoors was associated with higher depression and anxiety scores People who had increased their time outdoors the most reported the highest anxiety scores, but the research could not explain the finding “What we learned from these findings is that during future emergencies it will be important to carefully weigh the decisions to close parks and outdoor areas against the negative impact those closures may have on people's mental health,” said Dr. Young. Bedtime linked with heart health University of Exeter (UK), November 9, 2021 Going to sleep between 10:00 and 11:00 pm is associated with a lower risk of developing heart disease compared to earlier or later bedtimes, according to a study published today in European Heart Journal—Digital Health, a journal of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). “The body has a 24-hour internal clock, called circadian rhythm, that helps regulate physical and mental functioning,” said study author Dr. David Plans of the University of Exeter, UK. “While we cannot conclude causation from our study, the results suggest that early or late bedtimes may be more likely to disrupt the body clock, with adverse consequences for cardiovascular health.” While numerous analyses have investigated the link between sleep duration and cardiovascular disease, the relationship between sleep timing and heart disease is underexplored. This study examined the association between objectively measured, rather than self-reported, sleep onset in a large sample of adults. The study included 88,026 individuals in the UK Biobank recruited between 2006 and 2010. The average age was 61 years (range 43 to 79 years) and 58% were women. Data on sleep onset and waking up time were collected over seven days using a wrist-worn accelerometer. Participants completed demographic, lifestyle, health and physical assessments and questionnaires. They were then followed up for a new diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, which was defined as a heart attack, heart failure, chronic ischaemic heart disease, stroke, and transient ischaemic attack. During an average follow-up of 5.7 years, 3,172 participants (3.6%) developed cardiovascular disease. Incidence was highest in those with sleep times at midnight or later and lowest in those with sleep onset from 10:00 to 10:59 pm. The researchers analyzed the association between sleep onset and cardiovascular events after adjusting for age, sex, sleep duration, sleep irregularity (defined as varied times of going to sleep and waking up), self-reported chronotype (early bird or night owl), smoking status, body mass index, diabetes, blood pressure, blood cholesterol and socioeconomic status. Compared to sleep onset from 10:00 to 10:59 pm, there was a 25% higher risk of cardiovascular disease with a sleep onset at midnight or later, a 12% greater risk for 11:00 to 11:59 pm, and a 24% raised risk for falling asleep before 10:00 pm. In a further analysis by sex, the association with increased cardiovascular risk was stronger in women, with only sleep onset before 10:00 pm remaining significant for men. Dr. Plans said: “Our study indicates that the optimum time to go to sleep is at a specific point in the body's 24-hour cycle and deviations may be detrimental to health. The riskiest time was after midnight, potentially because it may reduce the likelihood of seeing morning light, which resets the body clock.” Dr. Plans noted that the reasons for the observed stronger association between sleep onset and cardiovascular disease in women is unclear. He said: “It may be that there is a sex difference in how the endocrine system responds to a disruption in circadian rhythm. Alternatively, the older age of study participants could be a confounding factor since women's cardiovascular risk increases post-menopause—meaning there may be no difference in the strength of the association between women and men.” He concluded: “While the findings do not show causality, sleep timing has emerged as a potential cardiac risk factor—independent of other risk factors and sleep characteristics. If our findings are confirmed in other studies, sleep timing and basic sleep hygiene could be a low-cost public health target for lowering risk of heart disease.” Garlic compounds may boost cardio health indirectly via gut microbiota National Taiwan University, November 6 2021 Allicin from garlic may prevent the metabolism of unabsorbed L-carnitine or choline into TMAO, a compound linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, says a new study from the National Taiwan University. TMAO – or trimethylamine N-oxide – has been known to be generated from dietary carnitine through metabolism of gut microbiota, and was recently reported to be an “important gut microbiota-dependent metabolite to cause cardiovascular diseases,” explained Taiwanese researchers in the Journal of Functional Foods . While antibiotics have been found to inhibit TMAO production, concerns over side effects and resistance have limited their use. This has led researchers to examine the potential of natural alternatives. New data indicated that carnitine-fed lab mice showed a “remarkable increase in plasma TMAO levels”, compared with lab mice fed a control (no carnitine). However, when allicin supplements were provided with the carnitine diet, TMAO levels were significantly reduced. “Surprisingly, the plasma TMAO levels in the mice of ‘carnitine diet + allicin' treatment group were as low as that of chow diet [control] group,” wrote the researchers. “This result indicated that the metabolic capacity of mice gut microbiota to produce TMAO was completely inhibited by allicin supplement even though provided with carnitine-rich environment in the gut. “It means the functional alteration of gut microbiota induced by carnitine diet can be prevented by addition of another substance with antimicrobial potential derived from food, such as allicin.” Garlic and heart health The study adds to the body of scientific literature supporting the potential heart health benefits of garlic and the compounds it contains. Consumer awareness of the health benefits of garlic, mostly in terms of cardiovascular and immune system health, has benefited the supplements industry, particularly since consumers seek the benefits of garlic without the odors that accompany the fresh bulb. The benefits have been linked to the compound allicin, which is not found in fresh garlic: It is only formed when garlic is crushed, which breaks down a compound called diallyl sulphide. Study details “This may offer an opportunity to take advantage of plants' delicately designed defense system against microorganisms, to protect ourselves by modulating gut microbiota to a healthier status,” wrote the researchers The Taiwanese researchers divided male C57BL/6(B6) mice into four groups: One group received only the control chow diet; the second group received the carnitine diet (carnitine added to drinking water at a level of 0.02%); the third group received the carnitine diet with supplemental allicin; and the final group received the control diet plus the allicin supplement for six weeks. Results showed that the second group (carnitine diet) had TMAO levels 4–22 times greater than those observed in the control group. However, these increases were attenuated in the carnitine + allicin group, said the researchers. “Our study suggests that antimicrobial phytochemicals such as allicin effectively neutralize the metabolic ability of TMAO production of gut microbiota induced by daily intake of L-carnitine,” wrote the researchers. “It may offer an opportunity for us to take advantage of plants' delicately designed defense system against microorganisms, to protect ourselves by modulating gut microbiota to a healthier status. “Our research also suggested that allicin and dietary fresh garlic containing allicin might be used as functional foods for the prevention of atherosclerosis,” they concluded. Drug used to prevent miscarriage increases risk of cancer in offspring University of Texas Health Science Center, November 9, 2021 Exposure in utero to a drug used to prevent miscarriage can lead to an increased risk of developing cancer, according to researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth Houston). The study was published today in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The drug, 17α-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17-OHPC), is a synthetic progestogen that was frequently used by women in the 1950s and 1960s, and is still prescribed to women today to help prevent preterm birth. Progesterone helps the womb grow during pregnancy and prevents a woman from having early contractions that may lead to miscarriage. “Children who were born to women who received the drug during pregnancy have double the rate of cancer across their lifetime compared to children born to women who did not take this drug,” said Caitlin C. Murphy, PhD, MPH, lead author on the study and associate professor in the Department of Health Promotion and Behavioral Sciences at UTHealth School of Public Health in Houston. “We have seen cancers like colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, thyroid cancer, and many others increasing in people born in and after the 1960s, and no one really knows why.” Researchers reviewed data from the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan on women who received prenatal care between June 1959 and June 1967, and the California Cancer Registry, which traced cancer in offspring through 2019. Out of more than 18,751 live births, researchers discovered 1,008 cancer diagnoses were made in offspring ages 0 to 58 years. Additionally, a total of 234 offspring were exposed to 17-OHPC during pregnancy. Offspring exposed in the womb had cancer detected in adulthood more than twice as often as offspring not exposed to the drug – 65% of cancers occurred in adults younger than 50. “Our findings suggest taking this drug during pregnancy can disrupt early development, which may increase risk of cancer decades later,” Murphy said “With this drug, we are seeing the effects of a synthetic hormone. Things that happened to us in the womb, or exposures in utero, are important risk factors for developing cancer many decades after we're born.” A new randomized trial shows there is no benefit of taking 17-OHPC, and that it does not reduce the risk of preterm birth, according to Murphy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed in October 2020 that this particular drug be withdrawn from the market.

Stefanie Krievins is the guest on today's episode of the Talent Magnet Leadership Podcast. Stefanie is the founder and CEO of Stephanie Krievins & Co, and the host of the Hot Mess Hotline Podcast. She has spent her career helping businesses grow with their teams by combining change management and leadership developing principles. In this exciting conversation, Stefanie and Mike dive deep into change management and what leaders need to do to equip themselves and their employees for change in their organizations. Leaders need to ask themselves how they can create change, and remain adaptable. Stefanie asks leaders, “Do we have the skills to help our people transition to the next best thing when there's ... no external forces forcing us to change? Can we have better self-management as a team to make that happen?” [2:09] Companies need one-year or two-year plans at the most in these uncertain times. Break plans into quadrants with important and urgent items in one quadrant, and important but not urgent in another. This is a good strategy that allows for flexibility and adaptability when changes happen in stakeholders' lives. [5:08] Leaders need to communicate more to bring their employees along with them into new changes at their organizations. Stefanie discusses the two tools she uses to do so: the Change Curve, and her 7x7x7 Communication plan. [8:59] Send seven messages, seven times, through seven channels to adequately communicate change. [12:07] Growth, change, and challenge are three important pillars of employee development. Employees thrive on change and challenge when the work environment is focused on their personal growth, and knowing they are a part of the solution to change, especially when they have trust in their leaders. [14:45] Vision, results, individuals, teams, and the processes needed to get there are the baseline for company communication. Formal and informal communication are also important. “Don't underestimate the power of popping into somebody's office,” Stefanie remarks. [17:41] DiSC is helpful for self-awareness and as a way to help people acknowledge their weaknesses. It gives you a better understanding of yourself so you can connect with other people and adapt to their styles. [20:55] Create an environment where change is welcomed. Leaders should never let their employees get too comfortable because change breeds excitement. This can only work when leaders first establish an environment of trust with employees. [24:30] A troublemaker in an organization is an individual nobody wants to be around because they cause dissension or stir up trouble for no reason. Alternatively, a pro troublemaker is someone everyone wants to be around. A pro troublemaker has an energy of joy, curiosity and is charismatic. Pro troublemakers are high achievers and do everything that they do with excellence. [27:08] Stefanie talks about the steps it takes to create pro troublemakers in an organization. [30:53] A person who is “too” anything - too ambitious, too nice, too helpful - is a person who is here to serve the world. They've simply overused their strengths and need help reining back in so that they can be their authentic selves. [32:32] Leaders are good at defining the vision but skip over getting their employees aligned with what actually needs to happen.

Exploiting these flaws can lead to leaking sensitive data, accessing internal resources, and under certain circumstances, remote command execution.Several ColdFusion/CFML tags and functions can process URLs as file path arguments -- including some tags and and functions that you might not expect. If these tags and functions process unvalidated user-controlled input, this can lead to SSRF vulnerabilities in your applications. In addition to providing a list of affected tags and functions, I'll cover some approaches for identifying and remediating vulnerable code. My goal for this talk is to raise awareness about what may be a security blindspot for some ColdFusion/CFML developers.https://www.meetup.com/coldfusionmeetup/events/281850930/ Recording: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wu6cRZcRx0 CFCasts Content Updateshttps://www.cfcasts.com Just ReleasedSoapBox - ColdBox Anniversary Edition with Brad WoodComing this weekYouth Trainings - Universidad Don BoscoA new series of ForgeBox coming very soonSend your suggestions at https://cfcasts.com/supportConferences and TrainingDeploy by Digital Ocean - THIS WEEKTHE VIRTUAL CONFERENCE FOR GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT TEAMSNovember 16-17, 2021 https://deploy.digitalocean.com/homeAWS re:InventNOV. 29 – DEC. 3, 2021 | LAS VEGAS, NVCELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF RE:INVENTVirtual: FreeIn Person: $1799https://reinvent.awsevents.com/ Postgres BuildOnline - FreeNov 30-Dec 1 2021https://www.postgresbuild.com/ ITB Latam 2021December 2-3, 2021Into the Box LATAM is back and better than ever!

I've blogged before about how it can be used for more than most may realize. What I want to share here is that it's not a “waste of time to bother”.Some may wonder first, “why is is worth pointing out Tracker? Doesn't everyone know about it?” The answer to the second question is “no”: many do NOT know about it. But the more important question may be the first, and it's the real reason I'm writing this post.https://coldfusion.adobe.com/2021/11/should-you-bother-to-file-bug-reports/ Blog - Ben Nadel - Phill Nacelli's SQL Tip Is Making My CFQuery Upgrades In Adobe ColdFusion 2021 EasyAs I've started to modernize my blogging platform for Adobe ColdFusion 2021, one of the things that I was dreading was the lack of Lucee CFML's Tag Islands. Tag Islands have really been a game changer for me, allowing me to seamlessly execute the CFQuery tag inside CFScript. I was afraid that I was going to have to keep using Tag-based syntax for my Gateway / Data Access components. But then, I remembered a hot tip from Phill Nacelli on giving dynamic SQL statements a consistent structure. It turns out, Phill's technique is making it bearable for me to use the queryExecute() Function in lieu of the CFQuery inside a Tag Island.https://www.bennadel.com/blog/4153-phill-nacellis-sql-tip-is-making-my-cfquery-upgrades-in-adobe-coldfusion-2021-easy.htmBlog - Ben Nadel - A Query Object Maintains Its CurrentRow When Passed Out-Of-Context In Adobe ColdFusion 2021As I'm attempting to modernize my blogging platform for Adobe ColdFusion 2021, I'm moving a lot of my old-school, inline CFQuery tags into various "Service" and "Data Access" ColdFusion components where they can be reused across multiple templates. And, as much as I love the ColdFusion Query object, my "service boundaries" deals with Arrays and Structs, not queries. As such, I have code that deals with mapping queries onto other normalized data structures. While writing this code, I was tickled by the fact that the Query object maintains its .currentRow property even when passed out-of-context. This .currentRow can then be used a default argument value in Function signatures. This is a really old behavior of ColdFusion; but, I thought it would be fun to demonstrate since it may not be a feature people consider very often.https://www.bennadel.com/blog/4152-a-query-object-maintains-its-currentrow-when-passed-out-of-context-in-adobe-coldfusion-2021.htm CFML JobsSeveral positions available on https://www.getcfmljobs.com/Listing over 233 ColdFusion positions from 103 companies across 123 locations in 5 Countries.6 new jobs listedFull-Time - Senior Coldfusion Developer |LATAM| at Colon, PA - United States Posted Nov 15https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/united-states/Senior-Coldfusion-Developer-LATAM-at-Colon-PA/11381Full-Time - ColdFusion Developer | 4 to 6 years | Pune at Pune, Maharash.. - India Posted Nov 12https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/india/ColdFusion-Developer-4-to-6-years-Pune-at-Pune-Maharashtra/11380Full-Time - Senior Coldfusion Developer (RQ02208) at Toronto, ON - Canada Posted Nov 11https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/canada/Senior-Coldfusion-Developer-RQ02208-at-Toronto-ON/11379Full-Time - Programmer (Coldfusion Java - Remote) at United States - United States Posted Nov 11https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/united-states/Programmer-Coldfusion-Java-Remote-at-United-States/11378Full-Time - Front End / Coldfusion Developer - Salford Quays + WFH at Sa.. - United Kingdom Posted Nov 10https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/united-kingdom/Front-End-Coldfusion-Developer-Salford-Quays-WFH-at-Salford/11377Full-Time - ColdFusion Jr. Web Developer at Pune, Maharashtra - India Posted Nov 09https://www.getcfmljobs.com/jobs/index.cfm/india/ColdFusion-Jr-Web-Developer-at-Pune-Maharashtra/11376ForgeBox Module of the WeekGlobberBy Brad Wood and Ortus SolutionsA utility module to match file system path patterns (globbing) in a similar manner as Unix file systems or .gitignore syntax.box install globberLast Update: August 10, 2021 - 3.0.7https://forgebox.io/view/globberVS Code Hint Tips and Tricks of the WeekEncode DecodeThe Encode/Decode (ecdc) extension allows you to quickly convert one or more selections of text to and from various formatsThe extension provides a single command to the command palette.

Company culture and change is one of the most important discussions today. With the hybrid work challenges, and as some companies work through mergers and acquisitions, leaders need to get very clear on certain elements to help build a solid foundation so that they can Team Anywhere. Today on the podcast, we interview Kim Clark Pakstys, thought leader and strategic advisor on mergers and acquisitions. Kim shares with us her experience with successful leaders who've been managing difficult mergers with patience, resilience and empathy. When two company cultures are merging, Kim shares five elements that leaders need to focus on to ensure a smooth change. These elements include leading with empathy, being clear on decision making and role clarity, coming up with a common language, and listening to the needs of your hybrid team.Some industries have made more mergers and acquisitions since COVID than they ever had in history. Alternatively, other industries have paused mergers and acquisitions all together.Prior to COVID, the conversation around whether the company was remote or in person was not a consideration as most had an office centric culture. Now, with so many companies adopting a “virtual-first” philosophy, it's another critical consideration as leaders move forward with mergers and acquisitions. In a virtual first environment, it is difficult for new and newly acquired employees to assess culture. Leaders need to be extra cautious about the culture of their company and the implications on leadership alignment, accretion, value creation, and fit following an acquisition. When two cultures are merging, there are five elements that companies need to focus on to adapt to a change.Read the full summary here.

The video version of this conversation can be found here on our YouTube channel 12 hours after the audio version goes live. In this conversation, we dive into why Josh is writing his books, why he engages with individuals online and what made him begin to question, and then ultimately give up his Christian faith.

This is not a substitute for professional medical care, and is not intended for use in the diagnosis or treatment of individual conditions. Guests on this podcast express their own opinions, experience, and conclusions. The mention of any product, service, organization, activity, or therapy should not be construed as an ASCO endorsement. BRITTANY HARVEY: Hello and welcome to the ASCO Guidelines podcast series brought to you by the ASCO Podcast Network, a collection of nine programs covering a range of educational and scientific content and offering enriching insight into the world of cancer care. You can find all the shows, including this one, at ASCO.org/podcasts. My name is Brittany Harvey, and today, we're continuing our series on the management of immune-related adverse events. I am joined by Dr. Maria Suarez-Almazor from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, author on Management of Immune-Related Adverse Events in Patients Treated With Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy: ASCO Guideline Update and Management of Immune-Related Adverse Events in Patients Treated with Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell Therapy: ASCO Guideline. And today, we're focusing on musculoskeletal toxicities in patients treated with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy. Thank you for being here, Dr. Suarez-Almazor. MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Thank you. BRITTANY HARVEY: First I'd like to note that ASCO takes great care in the development of its guidelines and ensuring that the ASCO conflict of interest policy is followed for each guideline. The full conflict of interest information for the guideline panel is available online with the publication of the guidelines in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Dr. Suarez-Almazor, do you have any relevant disclosures that are directly related to these guidelines? MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Thank you, Brittany. I don't have any disclosures directly related to the guidelines. BRITTANY HARVEY: Thanks very much. Then getting into the content of this, what are the immune-related musculoskeletal toxicities addressed in this guideline? MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: There are three major musculoskeletal syndromes covered in this guideline-- inflammatory arthritis, myositis, and polymyalgia rheumatica. BRITTANY HARVEY: Great. Then let's start with that first one that you mentioned. So what are the key recommendations for identification, evaluation, and management of inflammatory arthritis? MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: The diagnosis of inflammatory arthritis is primarily based on a thorough joint exam to detect the presence of synovitis and how many joints and what joints are actually involved. For this reason, we recommend early referral to a rheumatologist. From a diagnostic perspective, we recommend testing for antinuclear antibodies or ANA, rheumatoid factor, and cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies or anti-CCP. These are only positive in 10% to 20% of patients but may be indicative of a more persistent disease. As inflammatory arthritis does not have any specific biochemical parameters for follow up, we use inflammatory markers such as sed rate and CRP in conjunction with the clinical exam as indicators of disease activity. For grades 1 and 2, we recommend treatment with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, or low-dose steroids up to 20 milligrams of oral prednisone or equivalent. If there is involvement of only one or two joints, local treatment with steroid injections can be indicated. For grade 3 and higher, the dose of steroids can be increased up to 0.5 to 1 milligram per kilogram of body weight. And if there is no improvement within two weeks or if the steroids cannot be satisfactorily tapered, we recommend early initiation of a disease-modifying antirheumatic drug or a DMARD, such as methotrexate, hydroxychloroquine, or sulfasalazine. We need to understand though that these may take up to two or three months to be effective. Alternatively, we can use biologic agents which have a faster onset of action. Recommended agents include tumor necrosis factor or interleukin 6 receptor inhibitors. In severe cases, immune checkpoint inhibitors may need to be permanently discontinued. But the overall goal is to try to continue therapy while we treat the adverse event. BRITTANY HARVEY: Understood. Appreciate your reviewing that information for inflammatory arthritis. Following that, what are the key recommendations for identification, evaluation, and management of myositis? MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Well, myositis is really the most serious of the musculoskeletal toxicities. And it can be life threatening, especially when it's associated with myocarditis and with myasthenia gravis features. It usually presents with proximal weakness of the upper and lower extremities and sometimes with myalgia and even rhabdomyolysis. It usually is very acute in its presentation. Specific testing includes muscle enzymes, creatine kinase and aldolase, and electromyography and muscle biopsy if the diagnosis is uncertain. MRI can be useful as it can show muscle inflammation. And it can also assist in identifying a location for a biopsy if needed. Consultation with rheumatology and neurology should be requested early on. We also recommend that all patients undergo testing of cardiac enzymes such as troponin. And if elevated, a cardiology consultation should be placed right away and further testing performed. For grades 1 and 2, if patient has symptoms, treatment with corticosteroids are 0.5 to 1 milligram per kilogram should be initiated. For patients with grade 3 or 4, checkpoint inhibitors should be discontinued and the patient should be hospitalized. Corticosteroids should be initiated at a dose of 1 milligram per kilogram of prednisone or equivalent. And patients with severe compromise may need intravenous corticosteroid doses at higher doses of 1 or 2 milligrams per kilogram or even higher. For severe disease or if there is myocarditis or concomitant myasthenia gravis, we can consider plasmapheresis. IVIG can also be used, but it has a slower onset of action. And it is important to remember that plasmapheresis can remove immunoglobulins. So if it is to be used, the IVIG should be administered after the plasmapheresis is completed. There are other immunosuppressant therapies such as biologic agents that can also be considered. And sometimes for maintenance, oral immunosuppressants such as azathioprine, methotrexate, or mycophenolate mofetil can also be considered. Patients with severe disease may need to permanently discontinue the checkpoint therapy. BRITTANY HARVEY: OK, those details are helpful for clinicians. So then, for the last category, addressed in this guideline that you mentioned, what are the key recommendations for identification, evaluation, and management of polymyalgia-like syndrome. MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Polymyalgia rheumatica syndromes present with marked pain and stiffness of the muscles in the shoulder and hip girdles. But some patients can also present with concomitant inflammatory arthritis. The workup is very similar to that of arthritis. In these patients, it is very important though to obtain a creatine kinase so that the muscle enzyme to be certain that the myalgia is not from myositis, as a treatment would be very different. Although very rare, polymyalgia, in some instances can be associated with giant cell arteritis which, if present, would require more aggressive treatment. For this reason, it is important to ask the patient about symptoms such as headache, visual disturbances, or jaw claudication. The management of polymyalgia-like immune adverse events alone, without any associated vasculitis, is very similar to that of arthritis. So we would use NSAIDs and low-dose steroids for grade 1 and 2. Higher doses of steroids and disease modifying agents, including biologics, might be needed for grades 3 and 4. But overall, very similar management as that of inflammatory arthritis. BRITTANY HARVEY: Great. Thanks for reviewing all of those recommendations for those three different categories. So then, in your view, Dr. Suarez-Almazor, how will these recommendations for the management of musculoskeletal toxicities impact both clinicians and patients? MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Thank you, Brittany. For the most common rheumatologic adverse events, such as arthralgia, inflammatory arthritis, or polymyalgia-like syndromes, because they are not life threatening, we may not be as worried. But we need to recognize that they can greatly impair quality of life. So we really hope that these recommendations can assist patients and clinicians in the early recognition of symptoms and also in initiating prompt treatment so our goal to be able to continue checkpoint inhibitor therapy can be achieved by controlling the symptoms that really impair quality of life. Myositis is a much more serious adverse event that can lead to death. Patients may not be able to restart immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy again after they develop myositis. So we hope that these recommendations do highlight the need for very prompt diagnosis, consultation with specialists, and very aggressive treatment early on to control and manage these devastating, life-threatening adverse event. BRITTANY HARVEY: Definitely. Early recognition, treatment, and improved quality of life are key. So I want to thank you for your work on these guidelines and for taking the time to speak with me today, Dr. Suarez-Almazor. MARIA SUAREZ-ALMAZOR: Thank you, Brittany. BRITTANY HARVEY: And thank you to all of our listeners for tuning in to the ASCO Guidelines podcast series. Stay tuned for additional episodes on the management of immune-related adverse events.

Blind Abilities adds to the iPhone101 Series with an in depth review of how to create a screen recording in iOS using Voiceover. Pete Lane shows us how to retrieve the screen recording element from  the Settings app  and place it in the desired location in your control center, but that's not all he covers in this  jam-packed episode!  Additionally: Shows us how to activate our microphone for use with the screen recording. Demonstrates how to ask Siri to take a Screen Shot (a photo of our iOS screen(; share both The screenshot and the screen recording directly with a friend hands-free. How to retrieve both from the Photos App. takes a quick jaunt through the Blind Abilities App as he uses it to help demonstrate the screen recording process Join Pete for this thorough demonstration of all of these features in this 12 minute podcast that is guaranteed to educate and entertain!  Now let's lay out each procedure in a step-by-step format so it's clear for everyone to follow: Securing and placing the screen recording element in the control center: We first need to have the screen recording element available in our control center. Here's how we do it! Flick to your settings app and perform a single finger double tap to open it. Flick about halfway down the screen until you reach control center. Perform a single finger double tap to open it. Flick down until you reach the Heading called: “Included Items.” Flick to the right until you reach the item labeled Screen Recording. A single finger double tap will automatically place this item in your control center, but you can first pinpoint the precise location where you want this feature to reside when it is there. To do this, perform a single finger double tap and hold on the button following the screen recording element, labelled: “Reorder Screen Recording, draggable button.” Then slide your finger up or down the screen until you hear voiceover say the location where you wish to place this element. Release your finger and this item will be placed in that slot in this list, as well as in a similar location in the Control Center.  . now we need to go to our control center. Place your finger at the very top of your screen. You should hear voiceover speak one of the elements in the status bar, I. E. Time, Wi-Fi, cellular Network, battery percentage, etc. Once there, slide your finger down the screen beginning in the upper right hand corner until you hear the second audible sound. Lift your finger and your control center will open. Alternatively,      you can swipe up with three fingers from the bottom of your screen until you hear the second audible click to accomplish this. Flick through the various items in the control center until you reach the screen recording element. Remember, it will be in the same place here as it was on the list in the Settings App. Note: Be prepared to decide on what you will want to record using the Screen Recording feature, as our next step will be to start the recording. Also, you may wish to turn on Do Not Disturb in order to avoid unwanted sounds while in screen recording mode. You can ask Siri to do this, and see our previous iPhone 101 episode on Do Not Disturb for more information. Making a Screen Recording: Now that we have our Screen Recording element in the Control Center, we are now able to begin recording. To do this: 1Perform a single-finger double-tap on the Screen Recording element. Voiceover will count down 3-2-1, at which point the recording will begin. To stop recording, merely return to the Control Center and do a single-finger double-tap to stop. How to activate your microphone with Screen Recording: Go to the Screen Recording element in the Control Center. Flick up with one finger and you will hear two options. Perform a single-finger double-tap on “Open Controls”. Single finger double-tap to select this. You will be presented a list of options.  Flick right until you reach “microphone”. This will  be in the off or on position. If off, single-finger double-tap to toggle it on. Now all sounds will be recorded, including your voice and other sounds within reach of the microphone. You can do a single-finger double-tap to begin recording, or exit the Control Center by sliding one finger up from the bottom of your screen until you hear the second audible click. If your iPhone has a Home button, press it  once to exit. How to ask Siri to take and Share a Screen Shot and Screen Recording: While a Screen recording is a recording of  all audio and video occurring on your phone, a Screen Shot is merely a still photo, or snap-shot of a single screen on your phone. It's easy and fast to grab one. Say “Hey Siri, take a Screen Shot.” Siri will take a photo of whatever screen you are on. You may also press and hold your Home button and say the same thing. You may hear a clicking sound like a camera shutter as this happens. Ask Siri to share the image. Merely ask Siri to share with the person by name. You can shorten this process to a singled command by asking Siri to send a Screen Shot to (name).  Note: since screen shots and recordings are visual in nature, you may wish to turn off your screen curtain before beginning the process so recipients with usable vision are able to view the image. You can do this by performing a 3-finger triple-tap.   Retrieving Screen Shots and Recordings From your Photos App:  Screen shots and recordings are photos and videos and are therefore deposited into your Photos App. To retrieve them, do the following: Flick to the Photos App on your Home screen, or ask Siri to open Photos App. Single-finger double-tap to open it. Flick down to the bottom of the opening screen and perform a single-finger double-tap on the Tab labeled “Albums”. You may use a 4-finger single-tap toward the bottom of the screen in lieu of flicking multiple times. From the top of this screen, flick right and go down to the button labeled “Recent”. Single-finger double-tap to open. Flick twice and do a single-finger double-tap on the button labeled “Select”. Flick down until you locate your desired image. . You may choose to swipe up with three fingers in lieu of flicking multiple times to move down your Recent list. These are labeled by “Screen Shot” or “Screen Recording” respectively. Perform a single-finger double-tap to select the item. You may now view the item, delete it or share it by selecting the Share button on the screen.

Anxiety-inducing headlines, all-time stock market highs and an economy still recovering from a pandemic, have left many people hesitant to invest their cash savings. Video recap: https://youtu.be/YuytDPFD0wQ None of us can make uncertainty disappear, but considering potential outcomes and evidence can make a huge difference in the returns you receive over your investing lifetime. This week we are discussing strategies for how to fight the fear that comes when markets are near all-time highs. Watching the news can be expensive When reading and watching the news, it can be hard to remember that financial headlines are are designed to pull at your insecurities. Many of our everyday conversations now include inferences to supply chain issues, potential tax hikes, and inflation.  The wall of worry can seem higher when crawling out of a pandemic shutdown and continues to impact investor's confidence. So naturally, record market highs have people wondering whether now is a good time to invest. The fear of an impending fall in the markets causes some to hold onto their cash instead of investing. Others don't know what the right choice is for their money and are crippled by analysis paralysis. By holding too much in cash, you'll face the erosion of purchasing power over time due to inflation, but also experience the opportunity cost of stock market gains and the FOMO byproduct. A financial planning process can help you make decisions You don't want to get stuck with analysis paralysis. A financial plan is key to understanding your investment strategy and helping you answer the question: should I invest my cash? Walking through the financial planning process can help you create a disciplined and diversified strategy to provide added confidence in making your financial decisions. By creating a financial plan, you can dial in your specific goals and time horizon. This helps you determine how much you'll need in the short-run and how much you could afford to risk for the potential of higher expected returns in stock investments. What if I invest it now and the bottom falls out? The potential for an immediate drop after investing is always a risk investors wrestle with. And if investing in March 2000 or October 2007, you'd have to wait roughly 6 years each time to see a new all-time high. Alternatively, there have been at least 10 record highs achieved each year over the past 9 years. So if you waited to invest during that time, because what goes up, must come down, you could still be waiting. Paralyzed by the fear of an impending drop. One way to combat that fear is to analyze the numbers. Let's look at historical data. Of the people who invested at all-time highs since 1926, 81% were better off 1 year later and 77% were better off 5 years later. That still leaves a chance that you will lose money in the short-run, which is why it is important to have a safety net. And to this point, all market declines have been temporary. Investing is like a roller coaster ride. The only time you could get hurt is if you get out of your seat. Investing pitfalls to watch out for The average investor is susceptible to several common investing pitfalls. One of these is recency bias. If a stock has performed well in the past then many assume that it will continue to do well. Rather than make this assumption you'll need to study its performance over time. Another pitfall is market timing. Many people get a feeling about the market and they try to time their entrance and exit, but history has shown that most people can not time the market accurately. Time in the markets is better than timing the markets. Listen to this episode of Financial Symmetry to hear all of the perils that could arise by pressing play now.

Food is critical to life. Just like oxygen and water, it sustains us, gives us energy, and keeps our bodies moving. But how do you choose the right food for a healthy diet ? Over the years, we've discovered that there are many factors to consider. In this episode, Simon Hill shares his knowledge on the importance of having a healthy diet. He goes into the science of the microbiome, which keeps the body systems healthy. In particular, he shares his research on plants and their importance in food for a healthy diet. Simon shows how plants can help a person stay healthy: from reducing the risk for developing diseases to slowing down aging. Your health is in your control. If you want to know how to eat healthier, listen to Simon's discussion on microbiomes and plants as food for a healthy diet.

Episode Highlights About Simon Hill Simon lives near the beach in Bondi, Sydney. Australia may seem scary and dangerous. But most of the dangers are overhyped. Simon's partner, Tanya, also fears shark attacks despite their low probability of appearance. The Beginnings of Simon's Journey Simon's father was a professor. So, Simon grew up with a passion for science and scientific research. At 15 years old, he almost lost his father to a severe heart attack. It turns out that Simon's family has a history of cardiovascular disease. This experience and a lack of knowledge made him feel disempowered. He felt like cardiovascular disease is determined solely by genetics. Later on, Simon learned that lifestyle and environment play a more significant factor than genetics when looking at chronic diseases. How Food Environments Affect Nutrition Most people's food choices are dictated by their food environment. Malnutrition and food scarcity are a burden for many developing countries. As these countries develop, you can see a noticeable increase in obesity and diabetes. Transnational food companies prioritize profits over health. They market ultra-processed foods towards the impressionable parts of society. The government, then, must regulate the food market for a healthier society. Convenience, cost, taste, and education also affect how people manage their diets. Education is most important in learning how to eat healthily. Food for a Healthy Diet The labels on commercially-available foods do not define food for a healthy diet. Different studies show that healthy diets follow a consistent theme regarding how much fat, fiber, and protein a person should consume. Various diets can reach this consistent theme and deliver optimal health. Plants can replace animal products and processed food for a healthy diet. Tune in to the full episode to hear about the health benefits of swapping calories from animal protein to plant protein! The Gut Microbiome There are trillions of microbes that live within the body. A diversity in microbes is a sign of a healthy microbiome. It promotes a higher number of healthy bacteria and a more resilient ecosystem. A diet rich in fiber can promote a healthy microbiome, because the soluble component of fiber is a prebiotic and serves as food for good bacteria. In turn, these good bacteria produce different types of metabolites that affect the body. For example, short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate keep your gut lining intact. Alternatively, you're at risk for a leaky gut if your microbiome is not diverse. On Prebiotics vs. Probiotics Probiotics are live bacteria that have beneficial effects on their host. However, the bacteria and their effects are transient. It's much better to focus on having a diverse fiber-rich diet first before looking into consuming probiotic supplements. Prebiotic substances are already in your gut. Having a good amount of them ensures that your digestive system is producing metabolites. Increasing your fiber intake isn't automatically beneficial. If your gut microbiome is on the weaker side, suddenly increasing your fiber intake may cause inflammation. Simon recommends introducing fermented foods first to increase your microbiome diversity. Then, look at gradually increasing your fiber intake. Dairy vs. Non-Dairy Products Debates surrounding dairy consumption are far more nuanced than what we think. The media often chooses engagement and popularity over a detailed, contextual discussion. Dairy isn't an essential food group. However, there's no problem with having a little dairy in your diet. Typical Western diets consume dairy products that are very high in saturated fats. In this case, it's best to cut back on consumption. If you're able to, consider the ecological footprint that comes with dairy consumption. Simon believes that this is the strongest argument to reduce or avoid dairy products. Low-Fat vs. Full Fat Simon recommends low-fat when you have high levels of saturated fats. It's also best to ensure that the low-fat option you're choosing is not processed, flavored, or sweetened. On Planetary Health The world as we know it is on the verge of the sixth mass extinction. Currently, the species extinction rate is 165 times faster than during the end of dinosaurs. This rapid extinction rate is a result of humanity's choices and living our lives. How Simon Feels Radically Loved Simon feels radically loved by the relationships and connections he has cultivated throughout his life. Nature is also something that he greatly values. It deserves respect and love. The environmental problems we see around us are reflective of our relationships with each other. If we can learn to be loving and compassionate, we can solve climate change. 5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode [19:40] “Most people's food choices are dictated by the food environment… The system's broken in many ways.” [25:44] “We see pretty consistently across the board when you are swapping calories from animal protein for plant protein, you're getting better health outcomes: lower risk of heart attack, stroke, lower risk of certain types of cancer, etcetera.” [29:14] “The problem is, today, we're seeing a lot of people with various conditions lose the diversity in their microbiome. And in many ways, it's a micro sort of mirror of what's happening on a macro level; we're losing biodiversity on the outside world as well at the same time.” [41:58] “You really need to listen to your body. If you're increasing the plant diversity in your diet, and you're noticing that perhaps you are feeling bloated or feeling like you have less energy, then it might be that you're dialing it up too quickly.” [51:28] “Compared to the mass extinction that wiped out dinosaurs 65 million years ago, we are seeing species extinction at a rate of 165 times faster. And that is absolutely a result of the way that we're living our lives.” About Simon Simon Hill is a physiotherapist and nutritionist. He aims to make nutritional education understandable and available to the public. Having realized the importance of lifestyle in health, he encourages everyone to make informed decisions about picking food for a healthy diet. Initially a physiotherapist, Simon developed an interest in nutrition as he delved into research on its impact on health. Now, he is the host of the podcast Plant Proof. Here, he gives a platform for world-renowned doctors, nutritionists, and experts to share their knowledge and advice with the public. His rich experience and knowledge have also led him to write his new book, The Proof is in the Plants. Curious about Simon and his passion for nutrition? You can learn more on his website.

Synopsis: For better or for worse I decided to record today's episode when my mind was feeling a bit scattered … and it shows. We begin by reading Aurelius's “unphilosophic” thoughts about how to put death in perspective, which we compare to the Torah's stance as spelled out by the Rambam. We then read Epictetus's counterpoint to the Rambam which leaves us in a quandary, and we compound that quandary with an excerpt from Barbara Ehrenreich's thoughts on diminishing returns in the efforts to prolong life at the expense of living. Where do we end up?

How Close Must One Be to the Habdallah Candle?

Daily Halacha with Rabbi Gidon Ben Moshe: (Rabbi Gidon Ben Moshe, one of the foremost contemporary Poskim in Israel, heads a Kollel devoted to the study of Hoshen Mishpat.) The Hachamim instituted reciting the Beracha of "Boreh Meoreh HaEsh" when benefiting from fire on Mosa'eh Shabbat. Unlike other Berachot which are recited every time one benefits, the Beracha on fire is only said on Mosa'eh Shabbat. The reason is that fire was first discovered by Adam on the first Mosa'eh Shabbat, after being expelled from Gan Eden. It was then that Hashem gave him the insight to rub two stones together and create a flame. Therefore, the Hachamim instituted this Beracha exclusively for Mosa'eh Shabbat.It is preferable to recite this Beracha on the flame of a torch-i.e. a candle that has multiple wicks, all connected by one flame.There is one Halacha concerning this Beracha that many people are not aware of. One must be close enough to the flame to be able to derive tangible benefit from its light. If a person is so far away that he merely sees the flame, but if the lights were turned off, the candle would not benefit him, he cannot fulfill his obligation in this Beracha. There are two definitions as to how close he must be. The first is to be close enough to distinguish between the fingernails and the flesh of the finger. The second is to distinguish between two similar coins. This is particularly applicable to women who hear Habdallah recited by the Rav or Hazzan from the Ezrat Nashim. They are generally too far away to fulfill the Misva. The best solution would be to bring a special candle to them so that they will be close enough. Alternatively, they could recite the Beracha on a candle when they return home.SUMMARYOne must be close enough to the Habdallah candle to derive benefit from its light.
