If you're not a patron you can get the full episode by visiting patreon.com/workstoppage and support us with $5 a month.   On the second part of our Overtime series on the history of the US repressive state apparatus, we discuss its extension to attack working class movements overseas in Operation Gladio and Operation Condor.  We discuss how in the aftermath of World War 2, the United States organized, armed, and trained fascist terrorist groups to act as “stay behind” armies, ostensibly in preparation for a Soviet invasion of Western Europe.  In reality, these groups were primarily used to target the domestic population of their countries and suppress any left wing or workers movement deemed too friendly to communism by the CIA.  We also discuss the extension of the CIA's secret war against the working class to Latin America via the organization of a trans-national network of intelligence agencies connecting the fascist military dictatorships they brought to power.  We cover how these security agencies erased borders in their murderous quest to destroy any movement deemed “subversive” and a threat to United States interests. These massive secret operations left tens of thousands dead, and no one in the US has ever been held accountable for orchestrating them. We go over what lessons we can draw from the lengths the US national security state is willing to go to maintain its dominance over the world's resources, and how these tactics have evolved into operations being carried out today.

Clemens Ciepek is an Austrian Sailplane pilot who lives in Boulder, Colorado. He's the president of one of the premiere gliding clubs in the world and runs a website dedicated to spreading knowledge and improving pilot ability called "Chess in the Air" that is filled with fantastic in-depth articles that cover the full gamut of flying. Why do some pilots improve very slowly and others get good really fast? Clemens says it's in the approach. We cover the value of using the Condor flying simulator, studying theory, understanding forecasting as well as many of the topics Clemens tackles on his website: assessing risk, complacency, using the correct bank angle, thermal entry, identifying triggers and convergence, the most common mistakes that end badly, and a ton more.

On The Bird Banter Podcast #119 with Michael and Paula Webster we talk about their 5-year birding adventure in South America. They travelled in a Toyota pop-top camper van, had wild and harrowing experiences and saw remote and wonderful places, people and birds that are almost beyond belief.  They are real, as you can see by watching many of their videos on the You Tube Channel The Condors Feathers.  Michael and Paula decided after careers in business for Michael and as a math teacher for Paula to follow their lifelong birding passion to travel, document and experience places they dreamed of seeing. They spent 5 years traveling throughout much of South America. While there they produced a fabulous video documentary on one of South America's most endangered bird species, the Hooded Grebe.  It is spectacular.  Check out Tango in the Wind.   Michael has written a book about the adventure, to be released in the U.K. in about February, and in the U.S. later in 2022 called The Condor's Feather:  Traveling Wild in South America which you can find to pre-order on Amazon or in the U.K. at Waterstones. I loved the chance to meet and talk with this amazing couple, and cannot wait to read the book. Good birding and good day.

ARE HUMMINGBIRDS THE NERVE ENDINGS OF GOD? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09NV4NZXQ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Picaflores+Pallamary&qid=1639963249&s=digital-text&sr=1-1 (Picaflores: The Nerve Endings of GOD) is available as an e-book, a full color special print edition, a black and white print edition, and as an audio book. Matthew J. Pallamary's magical, otherworldly, intimate connection with the spirit of https://www.amazon.com/Picaflor-Continuing-Adventures-Shamanic-Pallamary/dp/B09HCS4YHJ/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1640071280&sr=1-2 (Picaflor) comes from two decades of visionary journeys experienced within the context of shamanic plant diets in the Peruvian Amazon where he says it was first gifted to him by the spirit of Condor. Pallamary relates to the Spanish name of Picaflor which means to bite or sting flower which is the common reference used by the Shipibo Indians, mestizos, and other groups he has worked with in Peru.    In his visionary journeys he has been blessed to experience reality filtered through a shamanic world view where everything is energy, and from this magical point of view the word spirit and energy mean the same thing. He says that if you see the world amplified through the lens of this timeless supernatural perspective, you will gain insight into the profound ways that plants, animals, and insects communicate with us and each other. According to the lore of the jungle, by sharing in the vibratory field of the animal's spirit energy, in a state of surrender on that entity's terms, that animal learns from the human by seeing things through human eyes while the human learns other modes of perception from seeing things through the animal's eyes. Pallamary says that he flew first as a Condor, then as a Hummingbird into sublime and exquisite high frequency realities exploding with neon luminescent pastel manifestations that defy description. Manifesting as air wrapped in light, every aspect of the physical and essence energetic of Picaflor is high frequency, not only in their external displays of high frequency color, song, high speed wing hum, and feather trills from their tails, but internally in how they see, hear, metabolize, and burn energy at high frequencies. Other than their bigger hearts, huge lungs, and brains, they are mostly made from air, the elemental defined as and representative of spirit, and they are masters of air. If they existed and manifested at frequencies higher than what they do, they would disappear into invisibility beyond our perception, truly becoming pure spirit.  Is it any wonder that they are considered to be the nerve endings of God? https://www.amazon.com/PICAFLORES-Nerve-Endings-MATTHEW-PALLAMARY-ebook/dp/B09NV4NZXQ/ref=sr_1_1?qid=1640071504&refinements=p_27%3AMATTHEW+PALLAMARY&s=digital-text&sr=1-1&text=MATTHEW+PALLAMARY (Picaflores: The Nerve Endings of GOD) also contains a treasure trove of pre-Columbian myths about hummingbirds and an in-depth collection of amazing facts and figures about these magical creatures. Although the content of the book's formats are identical, the stunning preternatural beauty of hummingbirds can best be seen in the full color print edition, while the full color e-book edition contains active links to video listed in the printed editions, and the audiobook version has the added sounds of hummingbird hums, chirps, and buzzes.

Today I have the privilege of sharing with you, Mary Powell. The reason I'm bringing Mary on is because she's having some wonderful success in her trading, and we want to share that and she has a lot of lessons. And also she wants to share. But Mary, you might not know this, you are, you have the privilege of being the first female trader that we're interviewing on the podcast. So I haven't interviewed too many people on the podcast, most of the episodes have just been me. But we have been starting to interview, you know, people that are going through our programs and having success and different different traders, and our listeners seem to like it. So I said, Alright, let's bring some more on. But I did want to get it from a female perspective, because I do know that and studies have shown this that females are better at trading than men. Mary: There is that? And let's hope I'm not the last. Allen: No, no, you won't be. Mary: Start a new trend. Allen: Yeah. Yep. So I'm trying to line up a couple more. So hopefully, we'll have a lot more. Okay. And I am seeing that we are seeing more females in the program. So before, when we started, it was almost 100% All men, now it's become maybe 80-20. I think that with people like you coming on and sharing and saying, Hey, look, you know, women can do this as well, it's, there's nothing, there's no magic or anything to it. I think you'll be a role model for others who are trying it, but they haven't maybe stepped forward or they haven't put their hands up and said, hey, you know, I'm interested or something. So I think definitely, that will help. Because a lot of times, you know, when we're doing some type of like a case study with someone, it might be like, Oh, maybe it's a grandfather that lives or they used to work as a firefighter, you know, and he's talking about his story and this and that, then we'll notice that all of a sudden, we get a big influx of people who are grandfathers who used to be firefighters, or other firefighters. So whoever the case study is we seem to attract people like that. So I'm hoping that we can attract more women into the group. So I think that you're a trailblazer for that. So thank you Mary: Hoping for that as well. We can all support each other.  Allen: Cool. So Mary, how long have you been trading options? Mary: I have been trading options for more than 20 years, I will date myself and tell you that I did participate back in the late 90s when the option Industry Council to still a marvelous group of free education on options. But at that time, they were trying to solicit more business in the options. And they would go to various big metropolitan cities, rent hotel banquet rooms, and give two or three day training sessions for free about options. And so that's how long I've known about options. I would say I was probably a dabbler for a long time trying to master the various concepts about the Greeks and different option strategies. And my career probably took the front seat at that time, and I just didn't dedicate the time needed to really focus on it. Until probably in the last five years, many people in my family or friends have retired. And when I went to the financial planner and start working the numbers, and I didn't like those numbers. Wanna see, you got to work for 10 or 15 more years, I'm very fortunate that I do enjoy my job. But I don't want to have to have that pain over me that I'm a slave to it. So that's when I really got serious and started really honing my attention and my education efforts on options. Allen: So about five years ago, you got serious? Mary: Yeah. Allen: And I want to ask you like back in the day when you first when you when you first start, would you remember how much the commission's were back then? Mary: They were probably in the range of 14 to $16 and each, each side, so you know, $30 a round trip and that was back in the day when the naming nomenclature was alphabetical. They didn't go by month in week. They didn't even have weeklies back then. Yeah. So you had to learn all of that. Yeah, it's been fun to watch the evolution and with electronic trade.  Allen: Yeah I mean it's so so much simpler now and easier. And I remember, like, I didn't get started. I don't know. It's been a while. I think it's like maybe 15-16 coming close to 20 years for me, but when I started Thinkorswim was already there. And, you know, everybody was blown away. They're like, Oh my god. This is so amazing. So I'm like, okay, but this is cool. It's good. I mean, it's good to have these nice features and stuff, but I don't get but they're like, now you don't understand. You don't understand what we've been through. You know, to get a quote, you have to call your broker on the phone. And then he has to go look it up for you. And it takes like, 10 minutes to get a quote. Oh, wow. Okay, yeah, this is all real time. This is cool. This is better. So yeah, people starting now. I mean, the tools available education is available. It's a lot simpler than back in the day. So was it just because of the money aspect that got you involved in Options? Or was there something else? Mary: It was primarily the money aspect. And, you know, I was working a full time job, but I wanted to get into more multiple streams of income in different ways. But my job requires probably 50 plus hours a week. So that did limit me from what I can go out and get a second job. I just totally burnout so and I didn't have the time to focus to open my own business or do something like that. So what could I do that could generate cash flow that didn't require a lot of time? That's where Options fit into the scenario. Allen: Okay. And you you're working from home right now? Mary: Yes. Allen: Okay. What do you do? If you don't mind? Mary: I'm an auditor. Allen: Okay. For like, the for the IRS or something or? Mary: No, for a retail company - food retailer, I audit financial statements. Okay, like Sarbanes Oxley. Allen: So okay, so about 50 hours a week you spend on the job? How much time do you spend trading? Mary: So overall, all of my trading, I probably spend, I'll say, a half an hour a day. Allen: Okay. Mary: When I started with your group, I first started with the blank check program. So in that trading, if I'm not making a trade that day, I probably spend five minutes a check - twice a day, which more out of curiosity than necessity. I could check it once a day. If I'm making a trade, I might spend 10 to 15 minutes analyzing what I'm going to do, and then I make the trade for the month. Okay. Allen: And so what have your results been so far? Mary: So far? So I started trading live, blank check program in February of this year. And in that eight months, I've averaged 7% return per month. Mary: Very nice. And so far, I've made 16,500. I started just with the minimum amount to open an account on TD Ameritrade, 10,000. Okay, and I have added some more money, so I could expand the number of contracts I trade in. Allen: Awesome. So what's your goal? Is it to put it aside for retirement or double your income, supplement the income, so you can try early? Mary: Put it aside for retirement, and then in the hope of retiring early, in the next three to five years? Allen: So basically, you're gonna, you're gonna you're gonna leave the money in and just keep growing that account? Mary: Yes. Allen: Okay. How long do you think it'll take? Mary: So, with the blank check trading in conjunction with my equities trading, which I was just starting before getting introduced to your podcast, and we can talk about that, but I was just starting to kind of glean in on the selling puts strategy and your paths of trading - the wheel strategy, right before I started listening to your podcast. So between the two accounts, I hope to be able to retire in three to five years. Allen: That's awesome. That's awesome. So about five to seven years early. Mary: Yes. Allen: Okay. And do you have any children? Mary: No, I do not. Allen: Okay. All right.  Mary: So that makes it easier. Allen: Yeah. Yeah, definitely. You know, she, she, she enjoys learning about the trading. And I've taught her in the past, but eventually, and then she started her own business. And so she's busy with there, and then she's busy with the kids. And she's like, Yeah, I don't want to deal with the trading. You know, she's like, you're doing fine. You do it. I don't want to deal with it. But we do have somebody else on our staff. And she is, unfortunately her husband passed away. I think it's been about a year and a half or two years from cancer. And so she's raising her four boys alone. And, you know, at the company here, I make it a requirement that everybody that works here, they have to know how to trade whether they do it We're not, you know, that's up to them. But they have to know what our customers are going through. They have to know the lingo, they have to know how to articulate. And so she's been, she's been killing it since she started. She said, she's learning and she's like, Oh, my god, you know, I've been working with you for two years. Now, why didn't I do this before? So.. Mary: Oh that's excellent! Allen: Yeah, it's, it's really, it's really cool. And the fact that, you know, you mentioned it only takes a few minutes a day, you can still work, you can still handle other responsibilities. It's not that it's not that time consuming. So that's one of the things I get, we got to get the word out, you know, we got to get the word out. Mary: I know but my heart goes out when I see older, retired individuals in the workforce. And I just say to myself, I hope they're doing it for social reasons and not economic, that they made the choice that they want to be out here working, because this is that easy at that age, and I give them all the credit in the world. Allen: Yeah, I mean, you know, you go to Walmart, and they have the greeters. And you know, they're standing there, and they can't, it's tough to see, it really is. But you said that you had started trading options about five years ago? Or was that Equities and Options or? Mary: That was just the equities? Allen: How are you doing with that? Mary: Very well, very well. That account is much larger. And, again, you know, I have to employ passive trading, because I just don't have the time. But I'm averaging 6% a month on that. So just to your principles may not seem like a lot, and I'm not going to be a millionaire overnight. But the compounding principle, in action, will. Allen: Yeah, no, 6% a month is nothing to.. Mary: No yeah so I'm beating the gentlemen over at a brokerage to remain nameless that other smaller accounts I have. So I'm very happy with the return. Allen: Cool. So how do you balance? Like, how do you decide how much to have in each? Because I mean, you said you're doing better in the oil. So however you decided, which is which you want to focus more time on? Mary: That's kind of a crossroads that I'm at, at this point, because I am doing so well, that I mentioned to you, the financial advisor, when I went last month for my tax checkup said, you have stopped trading for the year, or you're going to throw yourself into the next tax bracket, you do not want that. Focus has become the task, tax aspects of it all. So again, kudos to your podcast, because you address those types of things, all the section 1256 types of trades. And so that's where I'm at right now is evaluating. Okay, do I move more of my money into the oil trading? And I just signed up for the weekly trader, which is good deal more in the index funds - yes. So that would give me a better tax advantage. Allen: Okay. All right. Yeah. I mean, you, you know, I've never I know you can buy SPY. I don't know if you can buy SPX I've never actually tried to, that'd be interesting to know, cuz I know, the SPX. You know, the SPX does give you the tax advantage, the 1256. But I've never actually tried to buy a share of that. I don't know if you can, I know, you could buy call options, or, but I don't know if that'll be interesting to know. Yeah. Mary: Check it out. It's a first world problem. And I'm kind of on the water as well as like, do I keep working? or Now I, you have given me the freedom of time choice and choice do I mean, I could make what I make at my job trading? Do I do that full time? Or do I, you know, stick with the job as I can, then knowing that I do have the freedom of choice that if it gets to be too much, or I don't want to do it anymore, and I walk away from it. Allen: So you can you do that now? Or you could have to wait another three years? Five years? Mary: I could do that now. I think I'm just sticking with it. Because of the health insurance. And those sides thing? Yeah, I could still manage the job and the trading... Allen: Right. Right. So why not? Right. And you said there's, you know, there's a social aspect. So, you know, you've known these people for so long that it's like, kinda like family now. Mary: They are. That's very true. Yes, I have a great team that I work with. Allen: Cool, cool. So how does your husband feel about you trading? Mary: He has no interest in it whatsoever. He just lets me do my thing. I mean, I'm not used to getting his money or the mortgage money. So he just saw that's her little hobby. He's retired. So he spends most of his day either on a motorcycle or a mountain bike or doing the hobbies he enjoys. So.. Allen: Wow very nice. So he's never told you to be like, Hey, can you take care of my money too? Mary: Oh, he wanted me to do that with his 401k. And like no. Not gonna enable you, I'd be happy to teach you what I do. Allen: Well that was fun. Mary: He went out and got a money manager and.. Allen: Ahh that was funny.. you guys can do it together you know, swap stories, discuss different ideas, argue about which ticker symbols to buy. Mary: Yeah, I don't think you can handle the... honestly. Allen: It's not for everybody. No. Now the funny thing is, I do remember when you first called us so you got on the phone with us to learn about the program, and to get in. I actually talked to you, which I haven't I don't really talk to most people, but I don't know what it was. I was listening to you talking and you know, with Cory, you're going back and forth. And I hopped on the call, and you're like, Yeah, I'm gonna do it, but I'm gonna think about it. And then I was like, okay, you know, and then later on, you actually came back. And you actually, you actually came back and did it. In hindsight, would you still have waited? Mary: Well, no, it was active waiting. You know, it was the trust, but verify. So what I did after that call was based on what I knew, and kind of figured you were doing with these options I pay a portrayed is for three months. And it was all positive. So I said, Okay, I'm gonna take the leap of faith and go for it. Allen: Cool, good. So that means, yeah, so you've had like, instead of just eight months, you've had like, 11 months of gains? Mary: Yeah. I mean, I think one of the things that you talked about on one of the podcasts is, you mentioned compared to individuals, one person took the program and went and did really well with it. And the other person just over analyzed and questioned and said, you know, it's too simple. This can't work again, if you had to ask me what was my biggest challenge in implementing it was just grasping the simplicity of it. I was like, Okay. And granted, I, you know, I did come in knowing the fundamentals of Options Trading, but I went through the, there's only six lessons. And so I was like, Well, I must be really tired. Maybe they're on a more on a different page or get it again, tomorrow. Nope, I came back. And I went through the six lessons again. And I went, Okay, let's do it took a deep breath and placed the trade and been good ever since. Allen: That's awesome. That's great to hear. Yeah. You know, I mean, I always tried to keep it as simple as possible. And sometimes like, as options traders, you know, if you come in learning about options, and like you said, you know, you go to the council, and they tell you, Oh, you got to know the Greeks. And you got to know the gammas and the Vegas and, and all this stuff. And people come in and they're like, what about this? What about that? And I'm like, you don't need to worry about it. It's like, Mary: There's so many strategies and strangle... there's iron condor, and people just get overwhelmed. Yo, I don't know where to start or how to do it. And when you look at your system, you're just like, Nope, just follow the straight path that I've already blazed for you. And it'll all be good. Allen: Yep. The biggest problem I have some time is like, you know, like, I knew that you had been doing it, you had been trading for a while. So in my mind, it was like, okay, you know, my hardest part with you is going to be to get you to maybe suspend disbelief a little bit, and to kind of stop doing all the stuff you're already doing. You know, and be like, this is the path just follow these steps. You don't need to do anything else. Just, you know, don't overcomplicate it, because we have people in the program in the group. They come in and they're like, Yeah, you know, you told me to do this but you I'm gonna do this double Condor butterfly thingy. And I'm like all right, let me know how it turns out. Mary: Yeah, it's like bumper bowling just head down the middle keep aiming the head bin?  Allen: Yeah, that's why sometimes.. Mary: ..you're out to do I mean, no, it has I get myself in trouble is if I go against the rules, and they a towel, and then my tracking sheet of what rule did I violate and what lessons did I learn from it? And so I only have myself to blame. It's not the program. Allen: Cool. Cool. So what was besides the simplicity, what was the hardest thing to implement? Or like this could be for your equity trading or for your options trading, to go from, you know, learning and not doing as well, to making that switch to being okay, now I'm becoming consistently profitable. What did it take to make that switch for you? Mary: I think in your mind, you're always trying to hit that home run that you talk about. But if you just get your consistency down with the base hits and small amounts, just keep compounding and keep compounding, you know, all of a sudden, you look at the balance, and you're like, wow, alright, I'm getting some traction, and I'm making progress. And I can do this, I can do this. Allen: Awesome. So what was the biggest challenge in implementing? Mary: Again, I think it's just trying to keep myself from over analyzing it all the time trying to make it more difficult than it is because it's like, well, if it's this easy, and why isn't everyone doing it? Right? So your brain is going, Well, maybe if I add this, or I start looking at this number, analyzing this graph, or this chart, I'll get the edge and it's like, no, just, you know, take a little cream off the top and minimize your stress. And, you know, keep compounding and you'll get there. Allen: So how was it? How did you overcome that in your own mind?  Mary: Just trying to be grateful and satisfied with the results that I have, and not be greedy? Yep. Yeah, keep reminding myself, it's gonna be okay. You know, no matter what happens, now, I have the knowledge and the tools to always be able to financially provide for myself. And that freedom, we can't put a price on it. And I can't thank you enough. I owe you immensely. Allen: No, you're the one that did all the work so...   Mary: But you shared it, and you don't give up on me. Yeah, I'm just a stubborn Irish girl, you let it settle. And I'll come back around. Allen: Yeah, we nobody has accused us of not sending enough emails. Mary: I love your email. Allen: Like one of my mentors years ago, when somebody that I learned from, you know, he kept drilling it into everybody's head, anybody that listened that, you know, get a good education, because that is the one thing that nobody can take away from you, you know, they can take away everything else. They could take away your status, your money or your, you know, physical belongings they can. And he was talking to people from different countries. So he's like, you know, they could expel you out of your country, and kick you out and take everything that you have, but they can never take your education, you will take that with you everywhere you go for the rest of your life. And I think you hit it on the on your head, you know, when you when you mentioned that you're like, now I have a skill that no matter what happens, I'm going to be able to just, you know, go into the market and just extract money. And.. Mary: Yeah, even if all I need is, you know, if I retired and I just need the money to pay the property taxes. I can do that and spend the rest of my time I may be on the beach, but yeah.. Allen: Yep. And you I mean, you compare that to, you know, like the financial planners, you know, they go to school, they get degrees, they follow the news, and this and that, and they do all this research every day, and they're supposed to know everything that's going on in the economy in the market and everything. And hands down. You're beating them. It's like, why are you guys doing that hard, it's tough. If you could do this instead? Mary: So to bring it back here point about being a woman. I mean, we know they are better traders statistically, but just we know in the workforce, you get discriminated against and your pay. And as a petite woman Oh, even more so everybody treats me like a child. You see me at car dealership? Oh, oh, no. Yeah, no. They just only talked to my husband. And he's like, don't talk to me, she's the one buying the car. You know, for you to be honoring to women to give that gift. And it's that freedom of choice that you don't have to be locked into a situation or stay with an individual or with a company if you don't want to only for financial reasons that you can have the freedom to choose the life you want. Allen: Wow, that's amazing. Yeah. I haven't like as a man. I've never even thought about that. You know, I've never had to think about that. Yeah, that you can if you're in a situation that it's not healthy, that a lot of women like you said they feel trapped. They can't leave because they're dependent on one thing or another and they don't have the resources to handle it now especially.. Mary: When you're behind the screen. There's no discrimination. They don't know who you are. You're just out there trading with everybody else. So it's a level playing field. You can make it happen. Allen: Yeah, and you're actually going It's not even level you have the advantage. For, whatever reason, you know, I guess they say that the female mind doesn't take as much risk. It's, you know, it's more about staying calm and collected. And like you said this the small games and watching out for security more than, hey, I want to hit the Grand Slam, maybe that that's what it is but yeah.. Mary: Put your ego aside a little bit and, and in for people that I know a lot of people I'm not good at math. That's not it either, you know, I think if you're like you say if you're wise, big enough, you can learn this. And it's a B, if you're in a store, and they raise the prices on everything by 50%, you're gonna get out of the store, right? If you're in the store, and they lower the price by 50%, you're gonna buy everything. So it's same kind of concept.  Allen: Yep. So all you need is a calculator. Or if not, then you could just use a spreadsheet and this spreadsheet. Cool, awesome. So what do you think the future holds for you? No Mary: Choice. And that's a good feeling that I'm not locked in. If the job gets to be too much, I can walk away and trade full time, and I'll be alright. And if the job holds out, and I retire in three to five years, then I can enjoy more time in retirement doing things I want to do and giving back. Because that's what it's about. It's a human. Allen: Mm  hmm. That's amazing. Yeah, that's great. Because I know, you know, I don't know how or when this COVID thing is gonna completely go away, or if it's ever gonna go away, but there's been a lot of people who had to quit their jobs. And they couldn't, they didn't go back to work for one reason or another. And taking early retirement. And now, it's become a lot tougher, you know, people with pre existing conditions, and then you get older and then you have to go in and it's like, yeah, I don't want to expose myself, I don't want to expose my my loved ones. And if you have something like this, where you can sit at home in a few minutes and use your intelligence and use your common sense and push some buttons, and the money, you know, it's it's, it takes a while, you know, it's not overnight, that you start making money. But I think in the long run, it's better off. And based on that, I wanted to ask you, how long did it take you to get your you know, your mind around the whole concept and start making money? Mary: In the blank check? Well, both both. I think so because I kind of started out as a dabbler and learning like everybody else and tried the strategies of buying options first. And you know, that's so hit or miss and get frustrated. And this and that. And so when I finally started going on the other side and selling options and having success, and it's like, Okay, God encouraged and, okay, now I see how this is working. Okay, let me look at every strategy and the pros and cons. And so, you know, with selling options, okay, what's the worst that can happen? I have to buy the stock. So I stick to, you know, high dividend stocks that I don't wouldn't mind owning otherwise. So that limits the risk on that. So I would say it probably took me two years..  Allen: Okay Mary: And then it  was consistent in my return.  Allen: Okay,so two years of learning, making mistakes, coming2 back having some winners and some losers. And then how about with the oil program? Mary: That was successful right off the bat. The only, you know, last month was my only negative month that I had. And again, that was my own fault. I didn't follow the rules. But but, you know, I could say I had, you know, I had the laws and still far ahead. So it's not one of these, you know, your program is not one thing. Oh, I'm gonna guarantee you, you know, million percent return. Allen: Yeah, and I mean, losses are part of the game. So, you know, you gotta learn to handle them..One time or another, it's gonna happen. So you might as well be ready for it. But, but the The important part is to know how to manage it, you know, and so yeah, I oil has been, has been interesting this year. You know, last year was interesting this year has been interesting, and who knows what the future holds. But I think one of the things that you mentioned you alluded to earlier is that when you're doing it and if you have like a community of other people that are doing it with you that you can bounce ideas off, it gets it gets so much easier, and it's not lonely. You know, one of the things that we see that people are like, "Oh yeah, I'm gonna try to learn it on my own", you really are kind of on your own. And there's nobody there helping you and supporting you along the way. So it takes, it takes much, much longer than it should, and, or that he needs to. Allen: Yeah, and I mean, losses are part of the game. So, you know. Mary: Exactly Allen: You got to learn to handle them it around it. Yeah, one one time or another, it's gonna happen. So you might be ready for it. But the The important part is to know how to manage it, you know? And so yeah, I oil has been, has been interesting this year, you know, last year was interesting this year has been interesting, and who knows what the future holds. But I think one of the things that you mentioned you're alluded to earlier is that when you're doing it, and if you have, like a community of other people that are doing it with you that you can bounce ideas off, it gets, it gets so much easier, and it's not lonely. You know, one of the things that we see that people are like, oh, yeah, I'm going to try to learn it on my own, you really are kind of on your own. And there's nobody there helping you and supporting you along the way. So it takes it takes much, much longer than it should and, or that it needs to. Mary: And when you get older, you know, time is money. And it's worth the cost of the program to gain that knowledge and have it all laid out for you. versus spending so much time trying to dabble on your own and figure it out. And with your program I mean, the Facebook group is all very supportive and sharing their ideas. And as well as the weekly calls. It's a great community. They're very welcoming and open to everyone's ideas and learning new things.  Allen: Yep. Hopefully, you know, we won't have any of that discrimination in there. I don't think we have.. Mary: No, I'm not sensitive at all. I mean, I know for when I first started calling in, I was the only woman on but nobody ever made any comments or said anything. They were very welcoming.  Allen: Yeah, and the culture is pretty clearly. It's not like an all boys club, you know, they're very clean. No dirty jokes really like that. But um, so what would be some of the takeaways that if you know, somebody came up to you and said, Hey, I'm thinking about learning to train and joining Options? What are some of the tips that you would give them? Mary: Well, going back to how I even came upon your podcast. So during COVID, I've only been familiar with your program for about a year and a half. So with COVID, I was doing more walking, so started to listening to podcasts while I walk. So I searched for options, and yours came up. And when I saw how much how many episodes there were in content, I thought, Oh, this will take me three years worth of get through..so this would be great. And I got through all those podcasts in about two or three months. That's how good they were. And every one it was like, yes, that's exactly what happened. Oh, he's given such great advice, and it is down to earth. This is the real world advice. You're not sugarcoating it, you're not making promises that you can't keep. And if I had to tell people what I learned from my 20 years of trading, it would be just what you're telling people on their podcast, you know, from the ups and the downs to how to diversify. How to protect yourself from various risks. So I can't speak to the podcast strong enough.. Allen: Thank you.. Mary: That they cover the gamut of what you're going to deal with and when you become a trader. Allen: Okay, so Okay. Okay, so listen to the podcast, but what else? What else, give you some, some behind, you know, some, some, like stuff that you learned in the trenches kind of stuff? Mary: Stuff that I learned, I'll tell you that one of the best things I learned was making mistakes, how much I learned from it. Okay, so when I was first starting to sell options, and I realized that I kinda oversold and the position went against me. And so I was going to have divided the stock. Well, it was very expensive stack and I was like, oh, no, how's this gonna work out? What's gonna happen on Monday morning, so sweating it all weekend, figuring out how I could take a home back to cover my.. this and that and then just through going through it, then I realized, well, Monday morning, it opened up higher so they came out ahead, you know, they signed it to me, and then I resold it. So it was like, oh, okay, that's how that works. No problem. I know. No, I can handle it. That was my story. Allen: Yeah, yeah. Nobody showed up to my house. You know, want to break my kneecaps or anything? Yeah, a lot of a lot of on that point, there's a lot of things that we are afraid of that "oh, this is going to happen and that's going to happen" and we're not we haven't gone through it yet. And we just have these fears and when we actually go through it, it's like, oh, that's not what I was expecting at all. Mary: Yeah that's not so bad, I can handle that. So exactly, put a lot of that fear to rest in my head. Allen: Okay, so what are the worst things about trading for you? Mary: The worst thing? That there's so many things to choose from, from so many equities you can choose to dabble in and so many different strategies, just trying to find what your niche is. And you know, what works for you and what you're comfortable with. Well, I think finally, after all this time, I've been trading, I kind of have a cadence know, the stocks I like, which ones you get a feel for them, and you get a sense of how they move. And so that was kind of a switch for me, I guess, in the equities tend to trade a lot of high volatility stocks. Went to oil, in my mind, commodities, because I didn't have any frame of reference, except the old movie from the 80s. You know, one minute, you're up half a million and soybeans, the next they breach, your kids aren't going to college presents your... So I was worried that it would be even higher volatility than what I was used to. But it turned out to be the opposite. It wasn't as volatile. So I would make correcting move (inaudible) was gonna be a lot more volatile. And it was, so I've had to adapt in a good way. Allen: Okay. Yeah, most people told me the opposite. They're like, Yeah, this is, it moves a lot more than I'm expecting,  because of the leverage that's involved. Okay. So what was it that that attracted you to oil in the first place? Mary: It was the diversity from the equities, being able, again, like your multiple streams of income, I can do the same thing, but in different avenues. So that if something happens on the stock side, so I have the oil, and it was the tech draw of it. Okay, the benefits on the tech side? Okay. Allen: All right. Do you, now looking forward? Is there anything else that you're going to be trying? Or are you happy with what you got going on right now? Cuz I mean, you know, 6%, on one side, 7% average on the other side per month? That's really good. You know, you could easily turn that into a few million dollars the next few years, just compounding every month, over and over again. Do you think you need something else itching or are you just content? Mary: I just because, I get itchy and you know, there's a bird chirping in my ear about the whole crypto, you know, so, you know, I was looking into different started watching some videos or informational stuff on trading crypto in a Roth IRA. Allen: Really, inside a Roth? Mary: Yeah. So that if it goes big and you get the home run, then, you know, you don't have to get hit so hard with the tax.  Allen: Right, right. Mary: You know and being closer to retirement. Okay. For me, it's a different if you were 20 years or something. Allen: So would you have to have a like a self directed IRA this year, that special broker? Okay, all right. Okay. Mary: So but.. you know.. Allen: Interesting. Yeah. I mean, I have some, you know, I've been buying a little bit for the past several years now, just holding it and be like, Yeah, I'm not gonna trade it because I don't know where it's going up. And when it's going down, just been just invited a little bit here and there and just sticking in leaving it in the wallet and it's just, you know, just going up and up and up. It's crazy time do we live in? You know, like you said, 20 years ago, 14, 18, $20 a commission, you had to call your broker up to place a trade. Now, it's like, you know, press a few buttons 15-20 minutes a day, like you said, I don't know, man, we're living in great times. Mary: There's so many choices. You know, I do listen to some podcasts from CME Group is different ones. And just that team, they're expanding their offerings, you know, getting more into micros and the minis on all the indexes, because that's what people want. And they're starting to get into smaller units on the crypto currency and they don't have options on those futures yet, but you can tell there's enough audience questions about it that there's interest and I'm sure it'll come to be. Allen: Yeah. I think part of it is just they just want to make more money, you know. Mary: Their commissions are getting smaller and smaller. So they have to find ways to diversify as well. Allen: Yeah, the more stuff they have that people can trade, the more fees they can charge on their features. but cool. Okay, well, I appreciate your time. Is there anything else that you want to share with our audience? Mary: No, I appreciate the invitation. And just I would say, if you're new to options, don't get overwhelmed. Because I'm still learning, I pick up books. And, you know, I just, it's a hobbies, interest. And I like reading different books about it. But if you just learn one new thing a day, in no time you'll have it so don't get overwhelmed. And anyone's thinking about going into these programs with Allen's team and just have faith in the process and the program. He and his team are there to support you. It's not some fly by night, answering service, you can get a hold of Allen, you can get a hold of his team. So you know, that kind of put substantiation behind it. So have a faith in Allen's programs and have faith in yourself. Because you can do it, just get past fear and go for it. Allen: Well said, well said, Awesome. And thank you for this so well, the kind words, I really appreciate it. Nothing makes me happier when we have a success story or somebody saying, hey, you know what, I tried that. I just listened to you. And I did it. And it really worked. And I'm like YAY because like my wife. She knows trading, you know, she's she was interested in the beginning. And so I taught her some stuff, but I can't really go home and talk to her about it all day, cuz she'll like, she'll be like, stop. I don't really care. It's fun. It's fun when other people come back, and they like, Yeah, wow, it really worked. And I'm like, All right, Yay, we're actually making a difference in the world. So I appreciate that. Mary: You told me so. And you were right. Allen: Cool, cool. So for our listeners, I just wanted to sum up what Mary shared with us. So she's been doing oil options for about eight months now making consistent returns, she's also trading in a different account stocks, and you're doing some high volatility trades, right? And then you're also doing some low volatility stuff where you're doing like passive style with covered calls naked puts, and.. Mary: I'm mostly doing naked, puts on everything. Allen: Okay. Yeah. Okay. Yeah, those have been working amazingly well, I've been doing those as well just gotta make sure that you're protected when the market turns around. Cool. And then it was interesting that you said that, you know, your, your financial adviser told you, hey, you need to stop making money. Because otherwise, can you stop trading please because you're gonna go into higher tax.. Mary: Oh, my goodness. Allen: Like, okay, you know, give me some ideas, you know, how to, like, you know? Like, don't tell me to stop making money. You don't tell me, okay, give us give us a charity or something else? Or give you some ideas? Don't tell me to stop making it. Come on.  Mary: Exactly. Allen: That was interesting. And then I love the fact that she said that, you know, if you wanted to, you could stop working right now. And you could just live off your trading income. And that gives you complete freedom. And that gives you, you know, the choice of, hey, do I want to keep doing this? Do I want to stay at work, or if things deteriorate, you know, who knows what's gonna happen with the future, what's going on? If anything goes different topsy turvy, you have the choice of staying, or leaving or moving, you know, you could go to another country and, and who knows what, anything's possible. So I love that fact that you've been able to get to that point. And, you know, kudos to you, you did the work, you put in the time you learned, you tried it, you practiced it, and then you just followed, you know, you didn't mess with it very much. You followded the rules, and it's working, and you're like, Okay, you know, I can do this. It's good. And it's been wonderful to have a female perspective. I mean, you enlighten me about, you know, having that freedom of not having to be in that bad situation. If you are in one, you know, Mary: Yeah. Or, like, you know, the person on your team who not by choice, but is in a position of having to raise children with, you know, no partner and having to build a come up with that income to do that. Yeah, that's scary to be in that position. Yeah, I mean, for you're gonna do. Allen: Four boys is not cheap, you know. So it's like, she could either be working 50-60 hours and try to pay for everything, because she's got, you know, all four of them are gonna be heading to college soon. So that's not going to be cheap, either. And you can either do that, or, you know, she's working less than 40 hours now, and she's supplementing that with the money that she makes from her trading. So it's amazing. The blessings We get from this stuff. But yeah, you know, kudos to you. Definitely you looked into it, you learned about it and you said hmm. Okay, let me try. Yeah. And that took you down. It took you down a road that you never knew what the outcome would be. But the outcome has been amazing so far. So I'm really proud of you did a great job. Mary: I would not have explored that on my own. You know, if it wasn't for your program, I would have never looked into the oil. Allen: Yeah. Well, we're here for you. We're here for you know, all the other students that we have. We do our best. And again, I appreciate you. Thank you so much. Those of you are listening. If you want to reach out to Mary.

What's up to my surreptitious servals and surly-pincered stag beetles! Welcome back to the BNP and thank you for joining! To my patrons: y'all are the sand bar in my cabana cove and the dichotomy in my yin-yang unified field! This episode is a solo mission, and in addition to some zany audio tidbits I also have a subtly seasoned veggie dish for you. The topic? Strategy of Tension. What is it, what are its consequences and why should you care? I argue we should care quite a lot actually because no genuine re-distributive societal shift will be allowed to occur unless we can identify and neutralize this counter-revolutionary tactic. Ok so what is it? When right wing forces of reaction instigate chaos or even carry out acts of terrorism against their own people, with the express intent of blaming the violence and chaos on left wing political movements, this is what's referred to as the Strategy of Tension. Put another way: "The strategy of tension is a tactic that aims to divide, manipulate, and control public opinion using fear, propaganda, disinformation, psychological warfare, agents provocateurs, and false flag actions.The strategy of tension has been utilized by right wing forces of reaction many times, and these programs are matters of historical record. I'm going to get into more details in the episode but just a few examples are Operation Gladio in Italy, Turkey and W. Europe after WW2. Gladio was a U.S. and NATO backed campaign of false flag terror, deployed to sabotage left-wing political movements at a time when the European Communist & Socialist parties were crazy strong and popular, the Communists having been key warriors in the battle against Italian and German fascism. Another example of Strategy of Tension is Operation Condor, a U.S. backed campaign of political repression and state terror involving intelligence operations and assassination of opponents, officially implemented in 1975 by the right-wing dictatorships of the Southern Cone of South America. The program served to derail and uproot grassroots opposition movements which sought to reverse the brutal neoliberal economic policies of the previous era.

Sometimes surprising discoveries happen when scientists aren't looking for them. While analyzing biological samples from California Condors as part of a conservation effort, a team at San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance discovered an unusual phenomenon: two condors born in captivity that contained only maternal DNA. This startling observation confirmed a rare event known as facultative parthenogenesis - a form of asexual reproduction in females that typically reproduce sexually. From that team, Dr. Oliver Ryder joins the Lab Out Loud podcast to discuss his work in conservation biology, how his team made this discovery, and what implications it might have for the endangered California Condor and other species. About Our Guest Dr. Oliver Ryder, Ph.D., is the Kleberg Endowed Director of Conservation Genetics at the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance, where he oversees research activities in the areas of molecular genetics, genomic studies, and genetic rescue efforts, including stem cell applications – all focused on reducing extinction risk and contributing to species recovery and sustainable populations.

Now Alitalia is gone. As you join us today a 74-year saga of the airline business is now gone, maybe forever joining a very long list of airlines that some of us grew up with and thought might never go away. We do not pretend to to know all that much about Alitalia. But we know someone who does and shares his observations here. Marco Sorgetti, the recently retired Director General of FIATA and, for our money, the greatest DG to serve that iconic nearly 95-year old Geneva-based forwarder organization, today is alive and well in Turin, Italy. Here he tells the story from up close and personal of AZ. We recall delivering our newspaper, the original Air Cargo News founded in USA in 1975, 8 years before some Brits knowingly swiped our name and started up the now German-owned Air Cargo News in London. We came across some cargo workers at one stop, who were living in a container outside Hangar 6 at JFK where AZ Cargo operated. As AZ employees, they were on strike for what seemed like years back in the 1990s. Eventually after a couple of years the strike was settled and everyone knew the trouble with AZ was, that no one ever lost their job or something along those lines. "Now," Marco writes, "with Alitalia gone I wonder if the Italian style that lived so high in the air might be part of the story? "Maybe too much of La Dolce Vita?. "Perhaps," says Marco. "Geoffrey is not far from truth, but the picture is far more complicated." If you wish to continue listening you will get an idea of what we are talking about. Finnair is 98 In 1939, Finnair was on display at The New York World's Fair promoting planned scheduled services from Helsinki to New York City for 1940 via four-engined, high-flying Focke-Wulf 200 Condor passenger aircraft. In 1938, an FW-200 flew nonstop from Berlin to New York City scaring the hell out of Pan Am, which operated big lumbering Boeing B314 flying boats across the pond. Minus the world at war, Finnair would have been flying non-stop, HEL-LGA in 1940! So happy birthday Finnair and heartfelt thanks for the memories. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/geoffrey-arend/support

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast we are talking to Rachel Pollack, daughter of Director, Actor, Producer Sydney Pollack. You might remember some of the rather small films Sydney Pollack directed like Out of Africa, The Firm, Three Days of the Condor, Electric Horseman, The Way We Were or perhaps you remember him acting (and directing as well) in movies and television shows like Tootsie, The Sopranos, Will and Grace, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and other obscure productions. Oh right, Sydney Pollack also won an Oscar, an Emmy and his films have been nominated form a total of 48 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Out of Africa. Rachel lets us in on life with dad (and mum Claire Griswold) who cooked more than they went out for dinner, who once came to her to ask who Dave Matthews was before a meeting, whose love of flying was where he was happiest and his 24 hour prep to make his famous ribs. We take a deep dive into the basis of his entire career in show business from his years studying at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater in New York with the legendary acting teacher Stanley Miesner which led him to Broadway acting with both Zero Mostel & Tyrone Power, a Playhouse 90 episode directed by John Frankenheimer which led him to Hollywood as a vocal coach and how the advice of Burt Lancaster got him to direct his first film. It's a fascinating episode for all that and the wonderful antidote from Rachel that the more famous the actor, the less attention she paid to them. Take that Tom Cruise!

On Episode 9 of the Stroke Alert Podcast, host Dr. Negar Asdaghi highlights two articles from the October 2021 issue of Stroke: “Endovascular Therapy of Anterior Circulation Tandem Occlusions” and “Automated Perfusion-Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Childhood Arterial Ischemic Stroke.” She also interviews Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani about her article “Outcome Following Hemorrhage From Cranial Dural Arteriovenous Fistulae.” Dr. Negar Asdaghi: 1) Should perfusion imaging be incorporated into routine neuroimaging for stroke-like presentation in the pediatric population? 2) Is performing emergent cervical carotid stenting beneficial in patients undergoing endovascular thrombectomy for a tandem occlusion? 3) What are the outcomes of patients with intracranial hemorrhage secondary to dural AV fistula? These are the questions that we will answer in our podcast today. Stay with us. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Welcome back to Stroke Alert Podcast. My name is Negar Asdaghi. I'm an Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and your host for the monthly Stroke Alert Podcast. For the October 2021 issue of Stroke, we have a comprehensive list of publications, from studying the role of C-reactive protein in outcome prediction after subarachnoid hemorrhage to studying the association of over 81 classes of routinely prescribed drugs with the risk of ischemic stroke, which I encourage you to review in addition to our podcast today. Later in the podcast, I have the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani on her work with outcome prediction in patients with dural AV fistula–related intracranial hemorrhage. But first, with these two articles. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Between 10-20% of patients with an anterior circulation large vessel occlusion have tandem occlusions. That means that they have a concurrent cervical carotid occlusion or significant stenosis in addition to their target intracranial occlusion. Performing endovascular therapy for a tandem occlusion is often difficult, providing technical and access challenges for the operator. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        In practicality, we have two options for carotid treatment in the acute setting. One option is doing nothing, or do carotid angioplasty predominantly to gain access to that target intercranial occlusion. But the second option is to do an emergent carotid stenting. Currently, we have two ongoing clinical trials to assess the very question of whether emergent cervical carotid stenting is an option in tandem occlusions. One is the ongoing TITAN trial out of France, and the second one is a Canadian trial, Endovascular Acute Stroke Intervention - Tandem OCclusion Trial, or EASI-TOC. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        And while we await the completion of these trials, the treatment option for cervical carotid remains a contentious subject. Though performing emergent cervical ICA stenting is feasible, the opponents of the procedure highlight that emergent stenting is associated with higher rates of intracranial hemorrhage, a high risk of in-stent thrombosis, iatrogenic artery-to-artery embolization, and hemodynamic instability during stent deployment. Not to mention that it will increase time to reperfusion if stenting is done prior to the intracranial recanalization. In contrast, the proponents of emergent cervical ICA stenting argue that leaving the carotid alone can lead to an increased risk of infarct recurrence and infarct progression. Of course, it goes without saying that the current practice pattern is widely variable. So, in the current issue of the journal, Dr. Mohammad Anadani, from the Department of Neurology at Washington University School of Medicine, and a group of international collaborators from the TITAN and ETIS registries compared the outcomes of endovascularly treated patients with tandem occlusions in the anterior circulation who received concurrent carotid stenting to those who did not receive stenting of the carotid. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        It is important to note that the no-stent group included those with either no cervical carotid intervention or angioplasty alone. So, the authors identified 760 patients with a tandem occlusion that were included in the pooled analysis of TITAN and ETIS registries. TITAN stands for Thrombectomy in Tandem Lesions and endovascular treatment in ischemic stroke. That included EVT-treated patients; these are endovascularly treated patients with tandem occlusions from 18 comprehensive stroke centers across Europe and United States. And ETIS is an ongoing prospective multicenter registry that enrolls all patients treated with endovascular thrombectomy at six large comprehensive stroke centers in France. In both cohorts, treatment of cervical ICA was left at the discretion of the treating physician. Overall, cervical ICA stenting was performed in 56% of total patients with tandem occlusion. In the adjusted model, they found that the odds of favorable outcome and successful reperfusion were higher in the stent group. In contrast, the risk of any hemorrhage was higher in the stent group, but the rate of symptomatic hemorrhage was not different within the two groups. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Some very important findings from their subgroup analysis include a stronger benefit from emergent carotid stenting, unfavorable outcome in patients with lower NIH Stroke Scale, and in patients in whom the etiology of carotid stenosis or occlusion was deemed to be related to atherosclerosis rather than dissection. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        So, what are the top three things we learned from this paper? Number one, we learned that emergent carotid stenting overall increased the odds of favorable outcome in patients with tandem occlusion. Number two, emergent cervical ICA stenting came with a cost of increased hemorrhage, perhaps related to the necessity of administering antiplatelet therapies in the angiosuite. Number three, benefit from emergent carotid ICA stenting in the setting of endovascular therapy was confined to patients with carotid occlusion or significant stenosis in whom the etiology was deemed to be related to athero and not dissection. And of course, people seem to benefit from emergent cervical ICA stenting in whom the presenting NIH Stroke Scale was mild. So, many things to keep in mind, and most important of all, that these results are from registry-based data, and we still have to wait for the results of the two ongoing trials to confirm these findings. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Diagnosis of stroke in children is often delayed beyond the conventional thrombolytic and endovascular time windows. In 2018, randomized trials in adults showed that patients with an ischemic mismatch, that is the presence of a large ischemic penumbra in a setting of a small ischemic core, can significantly benefit from endovascular therapy. Whether these results can be directly applied to the pediatric population from simply the adult population is, of course, unknown. In this issue of Stroke, Dr. Mark Mackay and Melissa Visser, from the Department of Neurology, Royal Children's Hospital of Melbourne, and colleagues present the results of a retrospective, observational cohort study of 29 children who underwent MRI diffusion and dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion imaging within 72 hours of stroke onset. Perfusion-diffusion mismatch was estimated using the RAPID software with the same criteria used in adults, which was defining ischemic penumbra as regions with a Tmax delay of more than six seconds and core as defined by diffusion positive lesions with corresponding low signal on the apparent diffusion coefficient, or ADC, map with values less than 620. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Favorable mismatch profile was defined the same way that they are defined in the adult population, that is, core volumes less than 70 mL and mismatch volumes of over 15 mL with a mismatch ratio of over 1.8. Now, the primary goal of this paper was to demonstrate feasibility of assessing automated perfusion-diffusion mismatch in childhood stroke. So, among 187 children with confirmed stroke on MR imaging, 58 underwent perfusion imaging in the study and only 29 fulfilled the inclusion criteria. Most cases had cryptogenic stroke followed by local cerebral arteriopathy as part of their etiology of stroke. Vessel occlusion was confirmed in 12 cases, two of which involve the posterior circulation. So, RAPID detected an ischemic core in 66% of patients only, remembering that the remaining diffusion positive cases were excluded from this finding simply because either the ADC values were not below the 620 value or they had a smaller infarct core, at which point determining the ADC values becomes very difficult. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Overall, three patients only had favorable mismatch profile as we defined earlier and we use to guide us for thrombectomy in the adult population. Of the three children who met the target mismatch criteria, only one received IV alteplase and none underwent thrombectomy, which makes this difficult to validate the penumbral thresholds that are used in the adults for the pediatric population. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        So, what are the top two points from the study? Number one, in this large cohort of children with confirmed ischemic stroke, only a third had perfusion imaging, and most cases received their neuroimaging more than 72 hours after their symptom onset. Number two, the ischemic mismatch as defined by the adult criteria was present in children even as late as 23 hours from symptom onset. So, in summary, this study and others confirm the feasibility of performing perfusion imaging in the pediatric population, but there remains a necessary reluctance in adoption of perfusion imaging as part of the stroke protocols in pediatric centers. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        There are a number of concerns that we should keep in mind, including contrast-induced nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and gadolinium deposition in the brain, which are major concerns in the pediatric population, especially in those kids with impaired renal function or those requiring multiple scans over time. You have to also consider unfamiliarity with stroke imaging protocols, given that the majority of stroke-like presentations in children are non-ischemic in origin, in which case, perfusion imaging performance is of little or no value. And there should also be technical considerations, including uncertainty regarding the optimal bolus injection dose, rate, and scan duration of kids. Lots to learn, but still, studies like this represent the first step forward to further our understanding of the role of perfusion imaging in pediatric stroke. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Dural arteriovenous fistulas, or dural AVFs, are intracranial vascular malformations defined by abnormal communications within the dural leaf that's between meningeal arteries and dural venous sinuses and/or cortical veins. Dural AV fistulas represent approximately 10-15% of all intracranial vascular malformations and can remain asymptomatic or have a variety of neurological presentations, the most feared of which is intracranial hemorrhage. It is important to remember that much of the research on the topic is focused on high-risk features of dural AV fistulas associated with the risk of either initial or recurrent hemorrhage, things such as the pattern of venous drainage or location of the fistulas. But less is known about the clinical outcomes of these patients after they present with a bleed. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        The CONsortium for Dural arteriovenous fistula Outcomes Research, or CONDOR, Registry is an international multi-institutional database to study the outcomes of dural AV fistulas. In the current issue of the journal, in the study titled “Outcome Following Hemorrhage After Cranial Dural Arteriovenous Fistulae: Analysis of Multicenter CONDOR Registry,” Dr. Matthew Koch, from the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago, and colleagues used this registry to determine the morbidity and mortality of dural AV fistula–related intracranial hemorrhage. I'm joined today by the senior author of the study, Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani, to discuss this paper. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Dr. Amin-Hanjani needs no introduction to the Stroke readership. She's a Professor of Neurosurgery and Co-Director of Neurovascular Surgery at the University of Illinois. She's the past Chair of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons Cerebrovascular Section. She serves on multiple national and international cerebrovascular committees, including serving as the Chair of the Neurovascular Intervention Committee for the American Heart Association Stroke Council. Good morning to you, Sepi, and thank you for joining us on the podcast. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Good morning, Negar. I really appreciate the opportunity to have time to discuss this paper a little bit with you and the folks listening in today. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Great, Sepi, let's start off with discussing the prevalence of dural AV fistulas. In the current era of increased availability and accessibility of vascular imaging, how often are these malformations found? And importantly, what are the known predictors of so-called bad neurological behavior or intracranial hemorrhage in these fistulas? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          So, I would say these are rare lesions, which is, I think, what makes it particularly useful sometimes to pay a little bit more attention to them because they're less frequently encountered, and so there's not as much thought about looking for these lesions when a patient presents with neurological symptoms or hemorrhage. And so I think highlighting it here is important. They are rare. They're probably, as you mentioned, only about 10-15% of all vascular malformations. The crude incidence is probably somewhere around 0.5 per 100,000. So, again, infrequently encountered. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Because of the nature of the lesion, they're not as easily, I would say, identified incidentally. Unlike AVMs that will show up on routine MRI or aneurysms that'll show up on routine MRA, fistulas may or may not be apparent because of their nature. They're fed by dural arterial feeders; the fistula itself is within the dural leaflets. They can have venous drainage or ectasia associated with them. So, the secondary phenomenon of the venous congestion may show up on MR, but the actual fistula may be hard to identify. And I think, in some ways, that's why we tend to see them a little bit less incidentally, at least in my own practice, in my own experience, than we do when they present with symptoms, either non-hemorrhagic or hemorrhagic symptoms. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          There are some features of these fistulas that tend to predict if they're going to be bad actors, so to speak, if they're going to have those more aggressive symptoms of neurological dysfunction from venous congestion. Things like seizures, headaches, even dementia as a prolonged effect of venous congestion, or the most dreaded complications, in some ways, hemorrhage, which relates to if there is evidence of significant cortical venous reflux from the fistula itself. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Perfect. So this is a great start to get us now to the topic of the registry. What was the overall purpose of the CONDOR Registry? Please tell us a little bit about the patient population, specifically the population of your interest that you included in your study. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          So, given the rarity of the condition, you find that in the literature, there's lots of kind of relatively smaller case series, and it's hard to make broader assessments of outcomes and treatments, etc., when you're looking at small retrospective series. So, the idea behind CONDOR, which was really launched by one of my colleagues, neurosurgeon Greg Zipfel at Wash. U. in St. Louis, was the idea of getting together a consortium of centers who have either previously published or have a particular interest in dural AV fistulas to collate our series and get a larger cohort of patients together that could be analyzed for just the kinds of interventions and outcomes that would be of interest in looking at a larger sample size. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          So, the consortium now is up to, I think, 16 or 17 centers. The data that was collected and analyzed for the purposes of this particular manuscript came from 12 centers and was over a thousand patients. So, really a large cohort that allowed us to do a deeper dive analysis on a number of topics, including looking at folks who had presented with hemorrhage. There's a number of other studies that have come out of this registry, and the collaboration to form the registry has also been published as well. And it's retrospective data, but the hope is that CONDOR will eventually transform into a prospective database that will allow us to get even higher level data for this condition. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        So, perfect. Sepi, I was going to ask this question of whether the registry's ongoing, so thank you for clarifying that, but coming back to your paper. So, you included those patients who have bled. This was data up until 2017. And it's important to look at this number, 25% of patients with dural AV fistulas in the CONDOR Registry up until the time that you looked at the data. That's 1 in 4 patients presented with an intracranial hemorrhage. Is this an overall good estimate of the risk of hemorrhage for this malformation, especially when we're counseling patients on this? Or do you think this number is higher than routine practice and that it's just basically biased because it's a hospital-based registry? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          I think both things are true in some ways, meaning that because this is a consortium of tertiary care centers, obviously there's a referral bias. Patients who are symptomatic or who have hemorrhage are more likely to be cared for in that setting. So, we are going to tend to see a higher proportion of the patients that are presenting with aggressive symptoms or with hemorrhage within this kind of cohort. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          But along with that, similarly, if you look at the features of these fistulae, they're the ones that have the cortical venous reflux, the high-risk features. So, in as much as to say, "do 25% of all fistulas hemorrhage?" No, because presumably there's a lot of more benign fistulas, ones that aren't discovered or aren't worked up that are low risk for hemorrhage that don't show up. But within the paradigm of, again, the construct of a consortium where you're looking at centers who are really taking care of patients presumably presenting more actively with neurological symptoms, I think this proportion is fairly representative. And it, again, speaks to the fact that depending on the type of fistula and the features of the fistula, it's going to be more or less likely to present in an aggressive manner, hemorrhage being one of those presentations. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Perfect. So now let's talk about treatment modalities. A majority of patients in your study had undergone surgical intervention of the fistula. What was the most common intervention in this registry? And can you briefly tell us about the current treatment modalities, whether endovascular or surgical, that are available for dural fistulas? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          So, I think what we found with this registry, and these were centers both within the U.S. and internationally, that the most common treatment paradigm is endovascular, so embolization of AV fistulas. And I think that very much reflects current practice because of the relative, I think, being not an endovascular person, I probably shouldn't comment on the ease or lack thereof, but the ability to access these fistulae endovascularly and use a number of agents, including glue or other embolization materials to obliterate them. So, we certainly found that in the series, embolization, either alone or in combination with other modalities, was the most prevalent. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Having said that, surgical intervention still has a significant role. Sometimes these fistulas can be difficult to access, depending on their supply or drainage endovascularly, and then the surgical option for obliterating them becomes important as well. And then, more rarely, lesions that are not amenable to either of those modalities can be treated with radiosurgery, although the concern there always with a hemorrhagic lesion is that the effect is not immediate, as opposed to embolization or surgery, where your goal is to obliterate the fistula and remove the source of hemorrhage, which is really the cortical venous reflux, immediately to make sure that there's not a risk for recurrence. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Thank you. This is a great review of AV fistulas. So, coming back to the paper now to recap, you had a highly selected group of AV fistulas that presented with an intercranial hemorrhage, the majority of which underwent embolization in this cohort. So, what were the outcomes? And let's start with just a brief overview of what outcomes are actually collected in your study, and what did you find? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Yeah, so we were interested to see, in kind of the current paradigm of management of these fistulae, when they present with hemorrhage. As you said, the great majority were treated. So, this is not a natural history study in the sense that it's not looking at untreated malformations after hemorrhage. It's looking at patients in the real world who pragmatically are going to present into tertiary centers with hemorrhage. What is their overall outcome with the current state of interventions that are available and with whatever primary injury is caused by the hemorrhage itself? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          That's really what the study is looking at, is what is morbidity and mortality after hemorrhage from a lesion like this, and current management paradigm for these fistulas. And in that context, we were looking to see if there were predictors of worse or better outcome in that situation following the hemorrhage itself, and defining morbidity as Modified Rankin score of 3 or greater, with the idea of looking at independent versus dependent outcome, and also looking at mortality. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          In other words, how severe are these patients in terms of their neurological outcomes if they do suffer hemorrhage event? We were able to define and look at a variety of potential predictors of outcome. The hemorrhage from dural AV fistulas can be either intraparenchymal intracranial hemorrhage or it can be subarachnoid, or it can be a combination thereof. There can be intraventricular hemorrhage, all depending on the venous congestion pattern related to the fistula. And the idea was, do any of those hemorrhage subtypes matter? Do the comorbidities of the patient matter? Do the specific angio-architecture or location of the fistula matter as relates to the outcome from the hemorrhage? Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Perfect. So, at 13% morbidity and 3.6% mortality associated with AV fistula hemorrhages in your study, tell us please about some of the independent factors associated with this primary outcome. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Yeah. So, after we analyzed the features that were available within the database, really age emerged as a predictor of poor outcome. And I think that's not surprising. That's very true for the full range of cerebrovascular conditions. If we thresholded at age 65, folks older than 65 had a twofold risk of a worse outcome. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          The other things that we found, really a lot of the other features fell out on multivariate analysis, but the couple that remained strongly associated with poor outcome were folks who were on anticoagulants at the time of the hemorrhage. It was a small number within the cohort, but nonetheless, a very robust effect in that those folks did worse following their hemorrhage and certainly recurrent hemorrhage. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Now, a lot of these fistulae were treated, but in the instance where recurrent hemorrhage did occur prior to treatment, or if the patient had not undergone treatment, recurrent hemorrhage certainly had a really significant effect on worsening outcome as well. That age effect, as I said, has been seen in other vascular conditions. Anticoagulant use as a predictor of poor outcome at the time of hemorrhage has also been seen as a predictor of worse outcomes and other conditions like aneurysmal hemorrhage, things of that nature, and, similarly recurrent hemorrhage. So we're finding similar features as have been described for other cerebrovascular conditions as relates to hemorrhagic lesions as being important predictors of poor outcome. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Perfect. Very important features to keep in mind when we are dealing with patients with intracranial hemorrhage that are found to have these fistulas. So, things that you mentioned that I want to repeat just for our listeners were: age; recurrent hemorrhage that occurs if a patient is not treated and presented with a hemorrhage initially and added a recurrent one prior to receiving the appropriate therapy; and obviously, and not surprisingly as you mentioned, being on anticoagulants at the time of presentation with their hemorrhage. So, 1 in 6 patients, in summary, with dural AV fistula–associated hemorrhage in your study is dead or dependent follow-up. How does this morbidity and mortality, Sepi, compare to the outcomes from other vascular malformations, say, for instance, that of AVMs? Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Yeah, I think that's one of the things we're particularly interested to kind of compare and contrast. Now, one end of the spectrum, you have aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage. I think out of all hemorrhagic vascular lesions, that has the worst outcome. We know morbidity and mortality of that far exceeds 50%. For AVMs, it's been pretty well described even from prospective series that you can have 10-15% mortality and about 30% morbidity related to an AVM hemorrhage. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          And we were interested to see if that was similar profile for fistulas. I think our results show that it's somewhat better than the AVM hemorrhage. The mortality is lower at about 3-4%, like you noted, and the morbidity is around 13% for survivors. But all in all, if you aggregate that, that is, as you say, a 1 in 6 chance of a very poor outcome. So, it's not trivial by any means and certainly much higher than the hemorrhagic consequences of something like cavernous malformations, where hemorrhages from cavernous malformations are rarely fatal. These dural AV fistula hemorrhages can be fatal and can result in long-term morbidity. I think that has implications in terms of how we think about risk-benefit profile of treatment for a malformation, an AV fistula that's discovered and has predictors that would indicate it's at high risk for hemorrhage. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Thank you very much, Sepi. I think you've already eloquently summarized all of this, but I want us to leave our listeners with your top two or three takeaway messages on the topic. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Thanks, Negar. So, I think the key takeaways that we took from looking at this analysis is that we now at least have some idea about what the morbidity and mortality related to dural AV fistula hemorrhage is. That 1 in 6 number, as you indicated, really benchmarks what morbidity and mortality for the condition is. Now, what's the relevance of that? I think, by inference, we can take this into practice in a couple of different ways. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          First would be that if a patient presents with a fistula with high-risk features for hemorrhage, that knowing this morbidity and mortality related to hemorrhage certainly informs that discussion about treatment and certainly favors the idea of treating fistulas at high risk for hemorrhage based on cortical venous drainage early to prevent this morbidity and mortality from occurring. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Secondly, I think it argues towards making sure that there's a thorough workup done when a dural AV fistula is suspected, even if it's presenting with more benign symptoms like tinnitus, for example, or is discovered incidentally, and that workup really should be thorough enough to determine if there are high-risk features from this fistula. And that workup really entails catheter angiography because that's truly the way to determine if these cortical venous reflux and other features that are most associated with hemorrhage are present or not. So, I think those two key elements should be kept in mind. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          And finally, given the rarity of the condition and because these are complex and heterogeneous lesions, I think it makes sense upon discovery or suspicion of a dural fistula to really refer these to tertiary centers that manage these conditions frequently enough to be able to determine those risk features and to offer the appropriate type of treatment for it, whether it be, as we discussed, mostly embolization or surgery. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani, congratulations on this work, a huge collaboration and a great addition to the existing literature of vascular malformation–related intracranial hemorrhage. It was a pleasure having you on the podcast today. Dr. Sepideh Amin-Hanjani:          Thank you so much, Negar, much appreciated. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        And this concludes our podcast for the October 2021 issue of Stroke. Please be sure to check out this month's table of contents for the full list of publications, including two articles published online in September simultaneous with their presentation at the European Stroke Conference, which appear in the October issue of Stroke. The first article is on clinical outcome of thrombolysis with tenecteplase, and the second one discusses the effects of fluoxetine on outcomes after acute stroke, results from EFFECTS randomized controlled trial. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Now, for a second year in a row, the European Stroke Conference was entirely online, bringing a wealth of knowledge and stroke expertise from all over the world to a completely virtual audience. Now, we hope to soon return to our good old times when we traveled for conferences, but let's take a moment and think about the magnitude of this virtual accomplishment, the incredible role that technology plays in our abilities to do research and provide healthcare. And we owe this to the men and women that pioneered the development and the ever-growing fast-paced progress of computer sciences. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        Ten years ago in October, the world lost one such pioneer. Steve Jobs, the father of mobile technology and digital revolution, is recognized not just for his technical creations but also for his way of life, his incredible mind that led to the seemingly utopian ideas for how things should be. In a powerful commencement speech he delivered at Stanford University a few years before his death, he talked about his life experiences, the power of mind, and the power that lies in doing every part of one's work with absolute perfection and love. So, in honor of his genius and the legacy he left behind, we end our October podcast with his parting words of wisdom to the graduating class of 2005: "Stay hungry, stay foolish." And, as always, stay alert with Stroke Alert. Dr. Negar Asdaghi:                        This program is copyright of the American Heart Association, 2021.
