Join Haymarket Books and Spectre Journal for a conversation on revolution in the contemporary era. The last three decades have seen an increase in the number of political upheavals that challenge existing power structures, many of them taking the form of urban revolts. Revolutionary Rehearsals in the Neoliberal Age explores a series of these upheavals--in Eastern Europe, South Africa, Indonesia, Argentina, Bolivia, Venezuela, sub-Saharan Africa (including Congo, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso) and Egypt. In this book launch scholars of and participants in some of these revolutionary upheavals will consider what lessons we can draw from these moments and movements that brought the system to its knees, before it rallied and turned back the tides of sweeping change.

The world economy demands clean energy and cheap commodities and these are being extracted at a furious rate in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. So the DRC is benefiting from all this activity, right? Though extremely rich in natural resources, thanks to political instability plus a centuries-long legacy of commercial and colonial resource extraction, the value mainly accrues to the country's east and west, where corporations and governments benefit the most. Joining the show to discuss are Anuradha Mittal, executive director of the Oakland Institute, who describes how Western investors like university pension funds and corporations profit from oil palm plantations where human rights violations and environmental abuses are common. Then Christian-Geraud Neema Byamungu, a Congolese researcher who focuses on natural resource governance, tells us about how the growing demand for cobalt to make electric-car batteries has led to increased mining, the Chinese companies that dominate the DRC's mines, and why the contracts between those companies and the DRC are being called into question.

People have been dancing the night away to the congolese rumba for more than 70 years. Now the Democratic Republic of Congo and The Republic of Congo have launched a joint campaign to get the genre recognised internationally. They want UNESCO to include it on a list of intangible cultural heritage. For many people, Congolese rumba remains at the core of African music. So, how did it become so beloved?

In this episode, Randy and Tyler discuss the 1927 Pulitzer Prizewinning Play, In Abraham's Bosom by Paul Green.Synopsis from Concord Theatricals: In this story, [playwright] Paul Green, a product himself of a rural upbringing in North Carolina, tells the post Civil War story of the deeply troubled young man, son of a tyrannical white land owner and a poor black woman, who sees education as the means of raising himself and his African-American community out of the bondage of segregation. He strives heroically to fulfill his dream, but in the end is brought down by his own rage at the racist society and the hatred and jealously felt by his white half brother.******* IN OUR NEXT EPISODE *******Join us as we discuss the 2009 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Ruined by Lynn Nottage.Synopsis from StageAgent.com: Set in a small mining town in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lynn Nottage's Ruined follows Mama Nadi, a businesswoman who is trying to stay afloat in a world torn apart by civil war. The war has ravaged her country, and especially the young girls who have literally been torn to pieces by soldiers on both sides of the conflict. Mama Nadi takes “damaged” girls into her brothel/bar and profits from them, but also protects them from the brutality of the world outside her doors. Amongst Mama Nadi's charges are Josephine, the daughter of a chief whose town was destroyed and who was raped by rebel soldiers; Salima, who was taken by rebel soldiers, who killed her baby and took her as a prisoner-of-war before making her pregnant; and Sophie, a young girl who has been “ruined” by sexual violence. We also meet soldiers and commanders on both sides of the conflict, all frequent customers at Mama's bar.DeScriptedFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/DeScriptedPodTwitter: @DeScriptedPod - www.twitter.com/DeScriptedPodInstagram: @DeScriptedPod - www.instagram.com/DeScriptedPod
Ted B. Braden was “the perfect combination of high intelligence and criminality.” - Jo Ann, Ted Braden's sister-in-lawNovember 24th, 2021 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the only unsolved skyjacking case in American history. The case, nicknamed “Norjack” by the FBI as it involved the hijacking of a Northwest Orient 727 Airliner, would create a folk hero, if not a legend, of a mysterious man who would be immortalized by the name D.B. Cooper.This fascinating case has garnered a myriad of colorful and interesting suspects. One of the “dark horse” suspects who emerged over the years was a member of the most elite Special Forces unit created by the United States Government to serve during the war in Vietnam: a secret and covert unit called the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG). This rather benign-sounding name served as a thin veil, masking what was known to a few as the “black ops” unit in Vietnam.Many of the soldiers who served in this elite unit consider one of their own to be the infamous D.B. Cooper who hijacked Northwest Orient Flight 305; demanded a ransom of $200,000 in cash; and jumped out of the lowered aft staircase of the plane into the stormy night, never to be seen again. It was even stated by some of the most highly-decorated members of MACV-SOG, legends such as Major John Plaster and Sergeant Billy Waugh, that one man in SOG had the parachuting expertise, the know-how, and, most of all, the “balls of steel” to pull off the D.B. Cooper skyjacking.This man was Ted B. Braden.Raised in the Mid-West during the Great Depression, young Ted could not have foreseen that the trajectory of his life would be set by events happening thousands of miles from his boyhood home. At age 16, Braden joined the army to fight in World War II, a decision that led to a twenty-year on-again/off-again military career marked by dangerous covert operations; C.I.A. intrigue; desertion, arrest, and incarceration (only for him to be freed without trial under mysterious circumstances); Cold War mercenarism; and ultimately, distrust in a government for whom he could have surrendered his life.The story of Ted B. Braden, master parachutist and soldier of fortune, trained by Uncle Sam in the art of war but not in the art of peace, is the quintessential American story, the story of the men of his generation and of a war that defined that generation.Ted Braden was an enigma as a person, driven by a brilliant, unorthodox mind that struggled to adapt to a society based on law and order and routine. He was a true super soldier who was suspected of having mental illness, most likely from post-traumatic stress disorder. He was a tortured soul with the burning frustration that he could never parlay his soldiering skills into big financial gains. He was fearless in his military endeavors to the point of risking lives but was endowed with natural instincts of survival that kept him and the men under his command alive.It is tragic that a man like this is no longer alive to share his story. It is tragic that a man like this never will be fully understood. He had an ability to be very kind and very cruel, an ability to be very forthright and very cunning, an ability to be very committed as a soldier and very adrift as a civilian.Was he the man who fearlessly leapt out of a Boeing 727 with $200,000 strapped around his body on a rainy Thanksgiving Eve in 1971? We may never know, but even if Ted Braden is not D.B. Cooper, he is one of the most fascinating people whose story you never knew - until now.

Watu bilioni 1.3 katika nchi 109 duniani ni maskini wa kila hali na kiwango cha umaskini huo kinatofautiana kikabila, kwa kundi au rangi, hiyo ni kwa mujibu wa uchambuzi mpya kuhusu kiwango cha umaskini wa kila hali duniani ikiwemo kiafya, kielimu na kiwango cha maisha, uliotolewa leo na Umoja wa Mataifa jijini New York, Marekani. Taarifa ya Anold Kayanda inafafanua zaidi. Ripoti hiyo inatokana na utafiti uliofanywa kwa pamoja na shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la mpango wa maendeleo, UNDP na taasisi ya Oxford ya kupima umaskini na maendeleo katika nchi 109 ambapo nchi 41 zimewasilisha taarifa za kina kuhusu makabila ya watu, rangi zao na makundi waliyotengewa katika jamii. Kilichobainika ni kwamba tofauti ya umaskini miongoni mwa makabila ni kubwa katika nchi nyingi duniani na katika makabila 9 zaidi ya asilimia 90 ya watu wake wamenasa kwenye lindi la umaskini. Watu hao maskini wanatumia nishati isiyo rafiki kwa afya zao na mazingira yao, huduma za kujisafi na usafi hazitoshi na makazi yao ni duni. Katika baadhi ya maeneo, tofauti za kiwango cha umaskini wa kila hali ni kikubwa kwa baadhi ya makabila na rangi fulani ikilinganishwa na maeneo mengine ya kijiografia. Halikadhalika hata ndani ya nchi kuna tofauti kubwa miongoni mwa makabila. Miongoni mwa watu wote bilioni 1.3 ambao ni maskini wa kila hali, takribani nusu yao sawa na milioni 644 ni watoto walio na umri wa chini ya miaka 18. Halikadhalika zaidi ya asilimia 85 ya watu hao maskini wako katika nchi za Afrika zilizo kusini mwa jangwa la Sahara na zile za Asia Kusini. Nchi 5 ambako maskini wengi wa kila hali wanaishi ni India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Ethiopia na Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo. Ikiangazia umaskini na maisha duni kijinsia, ripoti inasema duniani kote theluthi mbili ya watu maskini wa kila hali sawa na watu milioni 836, wanaishi katika kaya au familia ambako hakuna mwanamke au mtoto wa kike aliyehitimu angalau miaka sita ya elimu ya msingi. Kiongozi Mkuu wa UNDP Achim Steiner akizungumzia ripoti hiyo amesema, janga la ugonjwa wa Corona au COVID-19 limemomonyoa maendeleo duniani kote, “na bado tunaendelea kuhaha kutambua athari zake. Kipimo cha sasa cha umaskini wa kila hali kinatukumbusha umuhimu wa kuwa na taswira halisi ya jinsi watu wanaathiriwa na umaskini, ni watu wa aina gani, wanaishi wapi iwapo tunataka kujenga na kuibuka kwa ubora zaidi baada ya COVID-19 na tusimwache nyuma mtu yeyote.”

Justin Wren knows what it's like to feel like the world is against you. Like many kids, Justin was bullied as a teenager, but he had a dream that kept him going. Fueled by the anger he felt toward his tormentors, Justin pursued wrestling in high school where he became 10 time State Champion, 5 time All American, and 2 time National Champion. Justin trained hard and this propelled his dream of becoming a UFC fighter into reality. But the pain from his childhood didn't dissipate, and Justin fell into a spiral of depression and addiction that led him on a path toward destruction. After he was kicked out of his training community, his career was in shambles and he had nowhere else to go so Justin attended a men's retreat. It was there he found his faith and purpose for living.As Justin began piecing his life back together, he took several international trips. This led him to the Ituri rain forest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo where he came across the Mbuti Pygmies, a group of people persecuted by neighboring tribes and forced into slavery. On one of his trips he stayed for a year living among them and sharing the culture of what he calls "the most bullied people on earth." They gave him two names Efeosa which means "the man who loves us" and Mbuti MangBO "The Big Pygmy." His encounter with the pygmies left him wondering who was there to help them, and in that moment Justin stepped out of the cage and into a Fight For The Forgotten.In 2015, after a five year hiatus from professional sports, Justin returned to his winning ways in MMA fighting, but now he is fighting for someone besides himself. Since returning to fighting, Justin is undefeated in three fights. His current record is 15-2.Justin is not only giving a voice to the pygmies through land, food and water initiatives but, state-side, he is addressing the escalating problem of bulling through an anti-bullying character development curriculum titled "Heroes in Waiting." He says, "Everyone can be a hero. To be a hero all that's required is to see a need and do what's right." The program aims to inspire students to take action at a moment of choice through empathy, kindness, compassion, courage and integrity. https://fightfortheforgotten.org/

Katika kuchagiza amani na upendo miongoni mwa wakimbizi, kijana Fideli Karafuru Busimba mkimbizi kutoka Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo, DRC, anatumia kipaji chake cha usanii kusambaza ujumbe wa upendo na amani hasa wakati huu wa changamoto zinazotokana na mlipuko wa COVID-19 akiwa ukimbizini nchini Uganda. Kijana huyu ambaye pia ana ujuzi wa uchoraji na useremala, anaomba kupatiwa hifadhi katika nchi ya pili ukimbizini akiamini kuwa itamsaidia kuepuka changamoto za kifedha zinazokwamisha ndoto zake katika maisha. Ungana naye katika makala ifuatayo akizungumza na mwanndishi wetu wa Uganda, John Kibego.
Lokua Kanza, mwanamuziki nguli ndani na nje ya Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo, DRC ambaye pia ni balozi wa kitaifa wa elimu wa shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la kuhudumia watoto, UNICEF nchini humo, ametumia ziara yake katika shule ya msingi aliyosoma utotoni ili kuchagiza wanafunzi wa kike na wa kiume kupatia kipaumbele suala la elimu. (Taarifa ya Anold Kayanda/Assumpta Massoi) Majira ya asubuhi katika shule moja ya msingi kwenye mji mkuu wa DRC, Kinshasa, ugeni kutoka UNICEF ukiambatana na Lokua Kanza, balozi wa elimu wa UNICEF nchini humo. Kisha ndani ya darasa lenye na mwalimu akafunguka. Mwalimu akamtambulisha kwa wanafunzi akisema mbele yenu ni mmoja wa wanafunzi wetu aliyepita hapa, mnafahamu anaitwa nani?... Watoto hawakusita kutaja. Na ndipo Lokua Kanza akapita darasani akibadilishana mawazo na mwanafunzi mmoja mmoja na kisha akazungumza nao kwa pamoja Anasema “hamjambo nyote, nimeguswa sana sikutarajia kufika hapa, nilifahamu tunatembelea shule lakini nimejikuta kwenye shule yangu nilikoanzia mafunzo nikiketi kwenye haya madawati. Nilipokuwa mdogo hatukuwa na umeme nyumbani, tulitumia mshumaa. Saa 11 alfajiri ilibidi niamke niwahi shuleni. Hii leo wanasema nchi yetu ina shida. Ninyi mko shuleni lakini kuna wengi ambao hawako shuleni.” Bwana Kanza hakusita kuwapatia ujumbe “Ninyi ambao mmebahatika kuwa hapa, jiendelezeni ili kesho watoto wote wa DRC wawe wana elimu. Lazima muamini kwenye ndoto zetu. Bila elimu hatuwezi kufika mbali, iwapo hatutaweza kujifunza basi katu hatutaweza kufikiria.” Msanii Kanza aliteuliwa mwezi huu wa Septemba kuwa balozi wa UNICEF kwa masuala ya elimu nchini DRC, taifa ambalo limepiga hatua kubwa katika kufikia elimu kwa wote katika miongo ya karibuni. Hata hivyo takribani watoto milioni 4 wenye umri wa kati ya miaka 6 hadi 11 bado hawako shuleni, idadi ambayo ni sawa na asilimia 21 ya watoto wote nchini DRC wenye umri huo.
Karibu usikilize jarida ikiwa leo ni siku ya kimataifa ya kuhamasisha kuhusu upotevu na utupaji wa chakula na mwenyeji wako ni mimi ASSUMPTA MASSOI. Miongoni mwa utakayo sikia ni pamoja na programu ya UNICEF nchini Kenya yawasaidia watoto wa kike kurejea shuleni. Taasisi ya kusaidia wakimbizi wandani nchini Yemen yashinda Tuzo ya UNHCR ijulikanayo kama tuzo ya wakimbizi ya Nansen. Lokua Kanza, mwanamuziki nguli ndani na nje ya Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Congo, DRC ambaye pia ni balozi wa kitaifa wa elimu wa shirika la Umoja wa Mataifa la kuhudumia watoto, UNICEF nchini humo, ametumia ziara yake katika shule ya msingi aliyosoma utotoni ili kuchagiza wanafunzi wa kike na wa kiume kupatia kipaumbele suala la elimu. karibu usikilize habari hizi na mengine mengi ikiwemo makala kutoka nchini Uganda.

In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray chat with body actor, Misty Rosas, who recently brought the character of Quiil to life on The Mandalorian. Misty first started her career as a gymnast, working to stay flexible and dynamic. She also spent time working as a dancer. As luck would have it, being a few inches shy of five feet tall, she learned she could play characters at Disneyland. She rapidly began to grow her craft as a character performance artist. One of her first block buster rolls was playing the ape in Congo. When the chance came to audtion for Kuiil, she jumped at it. That role has opened up new opportunities for Misty, including a chance to do more acting outside of the body costumes. While continuing her acting career, Misty is also an accomplished pop singer, working on her music between gigs. She is a talented performer on multiple levels and she has really only just begun to hit her stride. After the interview, Walt was once again forced to review a film selected by the listeners in The Wilder Ride LIsteners Group on Facebook. After the painful review, Alan and Walt each shared a pair of crazy news stories from the past week. Then, Misty joined the guys as they jumped into their entertainment segment. WATCHING Walt highly recommends Wind River starring Jeremy Renner. He also enjoyed watching the documentary, If I Leave Here Tomorrow about Lynyrd Skynyrd. Alan just saw RUSH Cinema Strangiato at the movies and loved every second. He rewatched Dances with Wolves and Tombstone, two fantastic Westerns. Alan is also hooked on the YouTube channels Ashleigh Burton and The Daily Doug. Misty is really liking the Apple TV show, Ted Lasso. She also likes The Leftovers and the documentary, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? about the BeeGees. READING Walt continues to plow through the book, "Don't Make Me Pull Over." Alan is knee-deep in news and the history of Bartow County for a video project he is producing. Misty is reading, "The Alchemist," "The Four Agreements," and has just ordered, "Atlas of the Heart." LISTENING Walt suggests the podcast, Team Never Quit. He also loves the show, In the Red Clay. Walt also planned to listen to WTF with Mark Maron interviewing Steve Buscemi. Alan, in honor of the Rush show recently published, has been listening to the albums, Moving Pictures, Hold Your Fire and Hemispheres. He also is keeping up with the podcasts, The Great Escape Minute, Radio Labyrinth and 60MW Podcast.

Sign up here: Patreon.com/noetics)This week's episode is a solo venture, featuring robots, words from sponsors and poems! Your veggies this week tackle a massively important figure in both Congolese and Pan-African history and someone who is not taught nearly enough (or ever) in US public schools: Patrice Lumumba. Patrice Lumumba was a trade unionist who became the first ever Prime Minister of the independent Democratic Republic of the Congo, serving from June until September of 1960. Lumumba was an African nationalist and Pan-Africanist, and his mission was to free the Congo from the yoke of hundreds of years of unspeakably brutal colonial and neo-colonial oppression. Belgium was truly horrific to the people of the Congo. Lumumba's political aims included nationalizing the massive mineral wealth of the Congo so that the government could provide basic universal services to the Congolese people, such as housing, healthcare, childcare and education. However, Patrice Lumumba, like so many great men who effectively oppose the status quo, had earned enemies, and some of these enemies were very powerful. Ultimately, the C.I.A. (Boooo), UK's MI6 (Boooo) and the Belgian Intelligence Services (Boooo) teamed up, and with U.N. complicity, had Lumumba arrested, tortured and executed by his political rivals. He was only 35 years old. Tune in to learn more about this hero, activist, political leader, and ultimately, a powerful martyr for the cause of Congolese Independence, African nationalism and Pan-Africanism.

Episode 67: Covid, Food, and HIV. Medical students discuss the relationship between high cholesterol and COVID-19, the effect of food order in postprandial glucose and insulin, and HIV history. Moderated by Hector Arreaza, MD. During this episode you will listen to three medical students discussing some topics that they found interesting during their family medicine rotation. All the credit goes to them because they read these topics and provided a very good summary. I hope you enjoy it.____________________High Cholesterol and COVID-19By Milan Hinesman, MS3, Ross University School of MedicineGiven the current state of the world, there's been a lot more attention to COVID-19 presentation, risks, and treatment. One study conducted by Dr. Kun Zhang and collaborators shows that there may be a relationship between higher total cholesterol levels and ApoB levels to increased risk of COVID-19 infection. Dr. Zhang used a mendelian randomization from the UK Biobank data to test for lipid effects on COVID susceptibility and severity. The study performed analysis of data from the host genetics initiative consisting of more than 14,000 cases and more than one million controls showing a potential positive causal effect between high total cholesterol and ApoB and COVID susceptibility. A mendelian randomization is a process of taking genes which functions are already known and measuring their response to exposure to a disease in observational studies. In short, high cholesterol and high ApoB are linked to COVID-19 infection.This is Rio Bravo qWeek, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California.

By Yvette Singh, MS3, American University of the CaribbeanIn the management of diabetes, health care providers usually assess glycemic control with fasting plasma glucose and pre-prandial glucose measurements, as well as by measuring Hemoglobin A1c. Therapeutic goals for Hemoglobin A1c and pre-prandial glucose levels have been established based on the results of controlled clinical trials. Unfortunately, many patients with diabetes fail to achieve their glycemic goals. Elevated glucose after eating may be the cause of poor glycemic control leading to vascular complications. Postprandial hyperglycemia is one of the earliest abnormalities of glucose homeostasis associated with type 2 diabetes. This is one of the important therapeutic targets for glycemic control. Current studies show that the amount and timing of carbs in the diet primarily influence blood glucose levels. Other studies also show that eating whey protein before meals, as well as changing the macronutrients in meals, reduces postprandial glucose levels; however, these studies did not have patients with type 2 diabetes. The main author of this study was Alpana P. Shukla and many other collaborators. The title is Food Order Has a Significant Impact on Postprandial Glucose and Insulin Levels, published by the American Diabetes Association on Diabetes Care in July 2015.This study was performed to analyze the order of food consumption with vegetables, protein and carbohydrates and its effects on postprandial glucose in overweight/obese patients with type 2 diabetes being treated with metformin. Subjects were studied for 1 week. They were given a meal with the same number of calories, after fasting for 12 hours: 55g protein, 68g carbs, and 16g fat. They were asked to eat carbs first, then to eat vegetables and protein fifteen minutes later. This order was reversed during the second week. Their postprandial glucose and insulin levels were measured at 30/60/120 mins after meals. The statistical studies showed an average post prandial glucose decrease by more than 25% when protein was consumed first. As well as the average post prandial insulin levels decreased by more than 40%. These results demonstrated that the timing of carbs during a meal has a significant impact on glucose and insulin levels comparable to some pharmacological agents. Reduced insulin excretion with this meal pattern may also improve insulin sensitivity. This may help patients with type 2 diabetes control their HbA1c, and possibly help reverse early diabetes. Educating patients about this approach is not controlling how much they are eating or restricting their diet so patients will likely comply with this recommendation. Eat your protein first!The potential problems of this study are that it was a small sample size (11 patients), limited food types, and insulin was measured only up to 120 minutes after meals. Further studies are needed to demonstrate the full effectiveness of this recommendation.___________________HIV Series Part I: HIV HistoryBy Robert Dunn, MS3, Ross University School of Medicine This is an HIV series for the Rio Bravo qWeek Podcast. The following episodes will include some of the history of HIV, transmissibility, the PARTNER-1 and PARTNER-2 studies, and will finalize with a full episode on HIV prevention. Today we are starting with HIV history.Prejudice against those with HIV stems from the history surrounding the virus. Between 1981-1983, cases of rare infections like Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) and aggressive cancers like Kaposi Sarcoma were appearing predominantly amongst gay men and injection drug users. Even children were presenting with AIDS creating misconceptions of how the disease was transmitted by touch. By 1982, this syndrome was referred to as the Gay-Related Immunodeficiency (GRID), which we now know as AIDS. Some History of HIVThe start of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was thought to have started in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1920 when the virus crossed species to humans and gave its ability to infect humans. In 1981, five young gay men in Los Angeles, California, presented with a rare lung infection called Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP). Two other groups of men also presented with a rare and aggressive cancer called Kaposi Sarcoma, in New York and California. By December of the same year, the first case of PCP was found in an injection drug user. And by the end of the year, there were 270 reported cases of this severe immunodeficiency and about 121 of them had already died from it, almost 50%. In 1982, due to the prevalence of these rare diseases being present among gay men, the syndrome was called the Gay-Related Immune Deficiency (GRID). The CDC later officially called the disease the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The term “gay cancer” was used in Venezuela before AIDS was known.In 1983, the disease was found in both women and children. In May 1983, in a joint conference between the Pasteur Institute in France and the National Cancer Institute, they announced that LAV and HTLV-III were the same virus and the cause of AIDS.In 1985, Ryan White, a teenager with hemophilia was banned from school when he was diagnosed with HIV after he received contaminated blood products. Ryan later died at 18 years old due to AIDS-related illnesses. At the same time, the FDA licensed the first commercial blood test to detect HIV. A foundation was later created to provide primary care and medications for low-income HIV patients.In 1987, the first antiretroviral drug, Zidovudine (AZT) was approved by the FDA to treat for HIV. In 1991, the famous basketball player Magic Johnson announced he tested positive for HIV and retired immediately. After his retirement he planned to educate young people about the virus which helped dispel stereotypes. Also in 1991, the famous singer of Queen announced he had AIDS and died the next day.In 1993, the movie Philadelphia with Tom Hanks promoted further discussion about HIV and AIDS. In June 1995, the first protease inhibitor was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which started the era for Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART). This brought down the rate of AIDS-related deaths and hospitalizations by 60-80%. Of special note, in 1986, the FDA passed the policy to ban all men who had sex with men (MSM) from 1977 onward, from donating blood or plasma to avoid the risk of transmitting HIV or Hepatitis A. This policy was amended in December 2015, when the revised policy said any MSM within the last 12 months, would need to wait at least 1 year before donating blood. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FDA amended it its policy once more to decrease the wait time to 3 months form the last time the man had sex with another man.____________________________Conclusion: Now we conclude our episode number 67 “Covid, Food, and HIV.” Kudos to Milan, Yvette and Robert, they presented relevant information for our practice of medicine. They taught us that high cholesterol is a risk for COVID-19 infection; Also, when you eat proteins first, your glucose and insulin after meals are lower than when you eat carbs first; and you will be hearing from Robert for a couple episodes regarding HIV. Today he gave us a little piece of HIV history. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.Thanks for listening to Rio Bravo qWeek.
