    Pediatric dentist Carlen Blume has spent her career giving specialized oral care to children under the age of 18. After over two decades of work, she is regarded as an industry leader by her community and her peers.Carlen BlumeBlume's focus lies not just in dental treatment, oral hygiene and cosmetic care, but an emphasis on preventative measures through a healthy diet as well.According to Blume, there are additional challenges to being a pediatric dental surgeon and working with young children. “Children require extra behavioral management and growth and development training,” Blume said. “Pediatric dentists are trained extensively in these areas.”Blume says that her depth of experience working with children and their parents to perform a variety of dental operations has helped her stand out. “I have 23 years of dental experience and 2 residencies. I also have 2 kids of my own, which helps me understand the needs and desires of the parents coming to my office,” Blume said. I address the overall health of my patients and understand self-care and oral health influence self-esteem and self-worth.”Aside from her job, Blume focuses on raising her two children as well as embodying the lifestyle she encourages her patients to have.“I have 2 fantastic kids who excel at life. My daughter is going to major in Astrophysics at UCLA in the fall and my son is a musical theater major at an exclusive high school program here in San Antonio,” Blume said. “I take pride in being healthy and try to live the way I ask my patients to care for themselves. I have run a few half marathons and love to exercise.”For Blume, being hard-working is important but being able to loosen up and enjoy life is just as essential.“The thing I like the most about myself is that I love people and I really try to have fun. I have great friends and love to spend time with them as much as possible,” Blume said. “I work hard, but I play hard, too. I think everyone should do more of that.”Media Contact: Massimo@tansocial.comVia KISSPR.com Press Release Distribution Service - Media Contact: Az@kisspr.com

Patrons also sound off with their money-saving hacks: eating less meat, price matching, and checking for rebates with your utility companies are all quick and easy ways to save some cash. After last week's discussion about these amazing deep space photos NASA released, listener Aimee joins us for further discussion. She is a PhD student in Astrophysics, and is here to help Andrew get excited about space! Aimee dispels a few common misconceptions: black holes don't suck things in like a vacuum cleaner, and the tax cost for scientific research amounts to only pennies per person each year. We also learn that there is a movement among astronomers to rename the JWST telescope in light of its namesake actually having been a HUGE homophobe. #Millennial will henceforth follow Aimee's lead and call it the Jelescope Welescope Space Telescope until it is renamed. We also get an in-depth analysis from Aimee about what we're actually seeing in these newly released photos, and whether or not aliens will be discovered in our lifetimes. Down here on Earth things are still a disaster: the final (for now) January 6th Committee Hearing will be hosted this Thursday July 21st at 8PM ET.

Parents are setting their kids up for failure by not exposing them to education about what their bodies are going through.

    When speaking about crypto and DeFi, it is inevitable that the topic of financial security will arise, one of the main selling points for crypto proponents. Today, we put the debate to rest as we speak to Dr. Nicholas Weaver, a technologist and academic who has been following the development of cryptocurrencies since the inception of Bitcoin. He holds a BA in Astrophysics and Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, where he is also a professor. His primary research focus has been network security, among other topics, and he has several published papers under his belt concerning cryptocurrency technologies. In our conversation, Dr. Weaver untangles the complexities of the perceptions of cryptocurrencies with the actual technology. We talk about decentralization, if cryptocurrencies are achieving it, and the underlying concept of blockchain technology, as well as whether or not blockchains are secure and what the potential benefits of cryptocurrencies are to developing countries. We then go into detail about why Dr. Weaver thinks the crypto space is not beneficial, the rising popularity of the space, and how cryptocurrencies make money, as well as why he thinks it will never work, and much more. Please tune in for a truly eye-opening, no-holds-barred episode as we learn the harsh truth about cryptocurrencies with expert, Dr. Nicholas Weaver!   Key Points From This Episode:   What public blockchain technology can achieve that was not previously possible. [0:02:51] How well the original concept, introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto, is living up to its theoretical promise. [0:04:06] Weaver explains and outlines the general appeal of decentralization. [0:04:57] He elaborates on his perspective on trusted and honest authorities. [0:09:39] An explanation of how Lightning Network attempts to solve throughput limitation. [0:10:36] We find out if major blockchains like Bitcoin and Ethereum are decentralized. [0:13:08] Differences between how nodes and miners influence the network. [0:16:23] How secure public blockchains really are. [0:17:45] Whether a facility for censorship-resistant transactions, like Bitcoin, is a good thing for society. [0:20:30] Potential benefits of cryptocurrencies for people in countries with limited access to banking and a good legal system. [0:24:35] Steps governments can take to regulate and control cryptocurrencies. [0:26:47] Weaver's opinion on why the regulation of cryptocurrencies has been so slow. [0:29:17] Outline of how Dr. Weaver sees cryptocurrencies developing in future. [0:31:38] How to incentivize miners not to attack the system to retain the value of Bitcoin. [0:38:24] Weaver on how stablecoins fit into the crypto ecosystem and if they're decentralized. [0:39:18] A rundown of the new properties the blockchain data structure provides. [0:45:59] Find out if Walmart using a private blockchain is just marketing hype. [0:51:20] Why the popularity of cryptocurrencies amongst venture capitalists is rising. [0:53:12] Why prominent schools like MIT and Cornell are emphasizing blockchain programs. [0:55:23] Weaver explains what the smartest way to invest is, in his opinion. [0:58:34] Who the technologists in the crypto-space are that he respects professionally. [0:59:51] He tells us whether he has heard any compelling arguments for cryptocurrencies. [1:00:31] A discussion about Dunning-Kruger economics in relation to cryptocurrencies. [1:04:38] What the general opinion of other technologists is on crypto and blockchain. [1:06:23] We end the show with a final takeaway from Dr. Weaver. [1:07:31]

The Carina Nebula is one of the largest and brightest nebulae in the sky, located approximately 7,600 light-years away in the southern constellation Carina. Nebulae are stellar nurseries where stars form. The Carina Nebula is home to many massive stars, several times larger than the Sun. WASP-96 b (spectrum). WASP-96 b is a giant planet outside our solar system, composed mainly of gas. The planet, located nearly 1,150 light-years from Earth, orbits its star every 3.4 days. It has about half the mass of Jupiter, and its discovery was announced in 2014. Southern Ring Nebula. The Southern Ring, or “Eight-Burst” nebula, is a planetary nebula – an expanding cloud of gas, surrounding a dying star. It is nearly half a light-year in diameter and is located approximately 2,000 light years away from Earth. Stephan's Quintet: About 290 million light-years away, Stephan's Quintet is located in the constellation Pegasus. It is notable for being the first compact galaxy group ever discovered in 1877. Four of the five galaxies within the quintet are locked in a cosmic dance of repeated close encounters.

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the abrupt transformation of stars after shining brightly for millions or billions of years, once they lack the fuel to counter the force of gravity. Those like our own star, the Sun, become red giants, expanding outwards and consuming nearby planets, only to collapse into dense white dwarves. The massive stars, up to fifty times the mass of the Sun, burst into supernovas, visible from Earth in daytime, and become incredibly dense neutron stars or black holes. In these moments of collapse, the intense heat and pressure can create all the known elements to form gases and dust which may eventually combine to form new stars, new planets and, as on Earth, new life.

William Lawrence is a scientist investigating new methods of communication with Life after Life. Developing a new device to demodulate the electromagnetic spectrum of Sunlight William discovered Ghosts were able to show themselves in the light. Later he went on to discover that it wasn't just spirits appearing but what appears to be Extraterrestrial Life. Experimenting with this device for 7 years he has collected overwhelming evidence of unexplained anomalies with photographic evidence of Non-physical spirits, physical humans and what looks like an Advanced Reptile Species. All appearing in detail in the electromagnetic spectrum of Sunlight. In August of 2021 Quantum Physicist Terry Rudolph from Londons Imperial College published a preprint paper theorizing an advanced alien civilization could modify the light coming off of stars in order to communicate across enormous distances. The idea is that aliens may use entangled photons from various stars to send messages using Quantum Entanglement.  They've shown through experiments that “free-space diffraction of photons distributes highly useful entanglement. William is currently investigating every possible scientific link to his experiments ranging from Quantum Physics, Astrophysics, Neuroscience and Quantum Communication Technology searching for answers to explain the unexplained anomalies he captured in the visible light frequency of Sunlight.  Bent Lights.com Facebook.com/bentlights/ Resource Links  Food Forest Abundance Start Your Own Podcast!

    How do you track a satellite? How reliable is its re-entry into the atmosphere? And how do we know what is happening in space? Dr Jonathan McDowell, astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, talks to us about orbital profiles, space debris, and just how crowded LEO (lower Earth orbit) is getting these days. We discuss re-entry into the atmosphere, how mega-constellations might challenge our previous assumptions about the atmosphere, and how X-ray telescopes are helping us explore space.

Tonight we are very pleased to welcome Dr. Lia Medeiros, a member of the EHT Collaboration, to the WSH. If you watched the NSF's streaming Q&A session following their press conference, you may recognize Lia as a member of the panel.   Dr. Lia Medeiros is currently an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study. In 2013, she completed her undergraduate education at the University of California-Berkeley in Physics and Astrophysics, and went on to earn her Masters and PhD (2019) in Physics from the University of California-Santa Barbara. After completing her classwork, Lia took advantage of the flexibility allowed by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and spent three years at the Steward Observatory at The University of Arizona and one year at the Black Hole Initiative at Harvard. Lia's PhD thesis was completed in collaboration with University of Arizona Professors Feryal Özel and Dimitrios Psaltis.   Lia was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and spent most of her childhood living in several cities in Brazil and a few years in Cambridge, England. One of the highlights of her career has been having the opportunity to engage with the scientific community in Brazil. She has given multiple talks in Brazil to both academic and public audiences in both English and Portuguese. When not simulating supermassive black holes, Lia loves horseback riding, practicing aerial silks, salsa dancing, and almost any type of art, especially ceramics and drawing.   To learn more about Lia, visit her website (https://www.liamedeiros.com/) - you will absolutely be mesmerized by the movie on her landing page!   You can stay up to date with Lia and her research by following her on Twitter (https://twitter.com/astronolia) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/lia.medeiros....

Today I am talking to Rupali Chandar, professor of Astrophysics at the University of Toledo and the current Associate Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Rupali got her PHD from Johns Hopkins, and she also has a double major in Physics and Astronomy from Haverford College. Rupali loves her research that focuses on understanding the physics of galaxy formation and evolution, and she is even currently leading a team of international scientists studying the most ‘extreme' star forming galaxies in the nearby university.  Rupali and I dive into why she chose the career she did, as well as the struggles she has had as a woman in a very male dominated field. Rupali shares what it has taken for her to find her own voice and to own the amazing gifts she has been given. We also talk a lot about how she has used her experiences to inspire her own children as well as many others to, “succeed on their own terms.” Know that you can connect with Rupali via email at, rupalichandar@gmail.com.
