There has been a request put it that the Idaho Legislature reconvene for an emergency session to talk about getting rid of the abortion exceptions that exist for incidents of rape and incest. Do you think that abortion should be legal in Idaho for victims of rape? Nate takes your calls and gives his opinion. (5/10/22)
The Atlantic reports on the GOP’s surprising turn against allowing abortion for rape victims. An Andy Warhol artwork just sold for a record-breaking $195 million. Bloomberg has the story. Microplastics are in our bodies. But it’s not clear exactly how much they’re harming us. National Geographic looks at the science.

José Valim returns for part 4 in our 5 part series as we count down to the 10 year anniversary of the Elixir project we know and love! In Part 4, we talk through the Elixir releases of 1.10, 1.11, and 1.12. We go deeper on the philosophy of “explicit vs implicit” and how that informs many design decisions about the language. We learn about how Elixir and Erlang loggers were unified, how matching on map keys in guards enabled receives block enhancements, how common date sorting bugs were solved with Enum.sort improvements (that you should really listen to), the improvements to application config, how exceptions work in Erlang and Elixir and much more! A packed episode!

Discovery now.Invention follows later —in Design or Zen.* * *One more point about process in general may be worth noting before considering the processes of discovery and invention in particular. Like most words, “processing” can be used as a euphemism. The last message on the evening news was that this night was going to be the worst of the current invasion of Ukraine by the Russian military. Turning on the news this morning, the first station was talking about sports; the second about methane emissions from raising cattle. I did not dwell for long on the sports commentary, feeling that familiar frisson of disorientation that comes with the sense of living in two different worlds. Imagining rockets and tank shells landing in my cozy neighborhood in Atlanta, while somewhere on the other side of the world, local attention is raptly focused on today's soccer game.The methane discussion, while at least focused on a real problem, that of global warming, was not that much more rational. It hinged around the idea of raising so many million head of grass-fed versus grain-fed cattle, in order to reduce the amount of methane in cow “burps.” The additional cost associated with the former, according to the rancher and self-proclaimed scientist being interviewed, does not result from the manner of feeding, but that of “processing” the cattle. The fact that factory-farming allows for geographically compact organization of feed lots close to processing plants — the slaughterhouse, in more honest words — is the sum total of the problem definition, at least from the perspective of the interests committed to producing a grass-fed product to meet the demand of the market for beef. His proposed solution is to invest in building processing plants close to the pastures. The rest of the dialog was all about adding things like oregano and kelp to the diet of the cattle, as serious proposals to solve the problem.By this time, a similar sense of losing my bearings from a focus on sports made me slightly dizzy. That these “products” to be “processed” are living beings was not once mentioned, nor the processing called out for what it actually is. Needless to say, any suggestion around reducing the consumption of beef, an obvious solution to the problem, crossed no one's lips. This may be taken as yet another lively example of the tragedy of the commons, so common to our times, but from a deadly bovine perspective. Bossy is not likely to ever die of natural causes, whatever the method of feeding. Shout out to Big Mac.Picking up the thread of how Design thinking may be related to Zen, as parallel processes of discovery and invention, the notion that what we call Buddhism or Zen originally had to be discovered or invented, may qualify as a radical departure from how most religions are regarded as originating in revelation, i.e. from a creator god. Then the apostolic imperative becomes convincing others of the validity of the claim, through performance of miracles, proof of prophecy, et cetera. In other words, propagation of the faith does not rely upon individual converts experiencing some such epiphany for themselves, with the notable exceptions of the recognized saints, but only believing the gospel, as interpreted by its messengers, prophets and priests.In Buddha's case, he took the contrarian approach that his claims depended on no one else, no authority from God — the Hindu Brahman or Ishvara — and no reliance on doctrine or scripture handed down from antiquity. This has to be the ultimate in personal responsibility, though Buddha did not claim exclusivity. Anyone could accede to the same revelation. There are stories of his performing miracles, but we have to take them with a dollop of… honey. Video recording was not ubiquitous in those days.In a very real sense, Zen calls upon us to rediscover and/or reinvent the findings of Buddha for ourselves, then draw our own conclusions from our own experience, and base any recommendations upon that body of evidence, rather than from belief in what others tell us. Thus the record of Buddhism amounts to testimony of the ancestors, rather than holy writ. But it does not stint on the potential implications, for their times and social milieu, but also for ours. Zen is always contemporary.Design, on the highest levels of the discipline, operates on a similar premise. Each of us is trained and encouraged to redefine the problem before us, rediscover its underlying raison d'etre, and to reinvent the best approach to resolving it. We cannot rely upon solutions from the past, merely adapting details to the current realities. Usually, any invention worthy of the name requires a wholesale revision of multiple dimensions of the process. Contemporary Design is an amalgam of the old and the new.One of the main points I am trying to make in this present series is that the principles of both Design and Zen are ever-present in all dimensions of living, from the most trivial and mundane on the personal level, to the most crucial on social, natural and universal levels. We have clever sayings, like “Don't sweat the small stuff” and “It's all small stuff.” But the small stuff is not disconnected from the big stuff, as it turns out.A mundane example: Spreading pine straw on our walkways, I realized that I used to do it differently. I would drop clumps of straw on the ground and then come back and spread them with a rake. But I noticed — discovered — that the professional lawn and garden crews in the neighborhood shake the clumps so that thin layers of straw fall on the surface, more like the natural process in a forest. Which results in a smoother, more tightly-woven layer on the ground. Since the walkways are underlaid with poly sheeting, which helps to suppress weeds without using chemicals, the straw tends to separate when it rains, revealing open areas of exposed poly. Adding more straw, I simply fill those spots in. But I do it by shaking thin layers over each other. It takes a little longer, but totally eliminates the secondary operation of raking. Which is a Design principle. Any time you can eliminate a secondary task, you do. You invest more time on the frontend but make it up on the backend.I think zazen functions similarly. The more time we invest in the beginning, when the going is pretty rocky and we do not have much experience under our belt, the more patience we can practice with our initial resistance, the less we will have to deal with in future, generally speaking. Exceptions include major changes in living patterns, such as adapting to changing working or living situations, which entails an overabundance of stress, and the sledding in zazen proportionately rougher. Midlife crises would provide the poster-boy for this category of circumstance. However, if we did not have the advantage of doing zazen, the tough times might be even tougher. When the going gets tough, the wise get sitting.References to “Zen bondage” made elsewhere are only partially tongue-in-cheek. We are in bondage already, if only to our own limited imagination. Bondage is known to have a comforting effect, along with its more unseemly connotations. Babies in swaddling cloths, cats in tight boxes, and dogs in calming sweaters are examples. We do have a blanket recommendation in Zen circles, to wear something comfortable and unrestricting, such as sweatsuits, or the newer stretch athletic clothing. But there is something akin to Victorian modesty in the mix as well. Clothing that is too revealing, or overly colorful, displaying distracting messages, such as some tee-shirts and sweatshirts, are generally discouraged, at least in public meditation sessions. In private, you are on your own. Which is where my suggestions of experimenting with support systems such as slings and strapping come into play.You should feel free, in the privacy or your own home, to sit zazen like no one is watching. And to play with the gear, the costumes and equipment. We sure know how to have fun, as my mother used to say.Again, Buddhism was inventive, and a process of discovery, from the very beginning. Buddha taught his followers to “Do thou likewise,” essentially. Understanding, I am sure, that no two instances of human practice-experience can possibly be the same. So I do not believe that the design intent of his instructions was for us to try to emulate his life, either as a young prince, or as the sage of the Shakya clan, to the letter. He encouraged all to find the middle way between the extremes, as he had done. Knowing that no one of those three paths would be the same, for any two people in history.What Buddha handed down was like a jazz chart, containing the basic chord progression and melody. But as the musician performing the piece, we are expected to improvise, and fill in the blanks. Claude Debussy, whose “Claire de Lune” is the first and only piece of sheet music I ever taught myself to play on the piano, said “Music is the space between the notes.” John Cage, the modernist American composer and music theorist, said something similar, and backed it up with his “4'33'',” a piano concert consisting of four minutes and thirty-three seconds of silence from the piano. The audience and other ambient sources provide the sound.Similarly, the ancestors of Zen were quite willing to improvise as needed, while grounding their teaching and practice on the legacy of their forebears, in particular their immediate progenitor. The lineage of Zen is a bit like that of music and the arts. Where, for example, the great classical and jazz greats had students and followers who inherited their mastery and philosophy, but then extended it into the next generation, allowing it to evolve with the changing circumstances of the time. Including developments in the technology of instrument-making. This universal process finds perhaps its clearest manifestation in Zen, where the instrument is this very body-mind, with which we have been born.Of course, any position of authority in any field can be misused and abused. A robe can hide a lot of sins, whether in the form of a Catholic priest, a choir master, an Oxford don, or a Zen master. Mastery of a method to the degree that it impresses others is no guarantee that one has mastered oneself. We hold to the truism that we do not master Zen. Zen masters us. And we cast a wary eye on the outer trappings of the tradition for these reasons, as well as the inescapable fact that the overt, outer form of the profession or guild, school or sect, creates a recognizable boundary between oneself and others. While such a division can be useful and is perhaps necessary — as the dividing boundary between the stage and the audience — over-emphasis on appearance and protocol can add to confusion. Such as implying that unless you, too, get a robe, your practice of Zen is not genuine. The Zen robe has a wonderful draping effect, of anchoring you to the ground, or on the cushion, and imposes no restriction on the legs arrayed in the lotus posture. But it can become a kind of sanctimonious symbol. As the old saying has it, there is no stench of holiness in Zen.Please consider the design of your Zen practice creatively. Do not be afraid to experiment. When you take this intentional approach, any imagined failure is not possible in reality. All malfunctions, whether of costume, gear, or monkey-mind, are temporary setbacks, from which you will recover quickly if you but pay attention and learn from them. And make any necessary adjustments. Or simply try something different. In this way, you engage your practice as YOUR practice. You broke it, you own it.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

In contracts, parties typically seek to limit their liability to each other, both in terms of the types of damages or actions for which a party will have liability and the amount of damages that can be recovered, as well as, in certain cases, the remedies that can be pursued. The parties often negotiate exceptions from these limitations, including for gross negligence or willful misconduct. During this podcast, Chris Houpt, Linda Rhodes and Anja Watt along with host Julian Dibbell will examine the definitions of gross negligence and willful misconduct, recent court holdings on the ability of contracting parties to limit liability and the implications for contracts. For purposes of this podcast, we focus on New York law, commonly selected as the governing law in contracts.

SUPPORT ME ON PATREON WATCH MUSIC is not a GENRE VIDEOS and MORE FEATURED SONG: REC – “I'm Gone” (from Parts and Labour) First off, we need to agree on what makes a supergroup. There are lists based on the conventional definition that it's a group made up of members from other groups. I'm gonna take that two steps further. STEP ONE (yes, I've now planted the NKOTB song in your head): The groups these people came from needed to have been famous on their own – i.e. successful & known, i.e. “super”. This can include solo careers. STEP TWO: The new group they form has to have had some measure of success & renown as well. In short, a supergroup is “a famous new group formed by members of famous old groups.” This stricter definition rules out a ton of groups otherwise called “super”. Some categories that no longer apply: · Groups whose members were in groups no one has heard of. Example: Can anyone name one other group members of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons came from? · New groups almost no one has heard of or remembers. Example: We probably all know Filter, Nine Inch Nails & Stone Temple Pilots, but does anyone remember Army of Anyone? · Glorified side projects, – people mostly from one band, with some side dudes from other lesser known bands. Examples: GTR, A Perfect Circle, Zwan. · Established bands that had another famous person join in for a while. Examples: RHCP with Dave Navarro; Mars Volta with John Frusciante, Queen with Paul Rodgers. · Glorified solo projects – one famous musician forming a band with a bunch of non-famous people. Example: Wings. · Personal favorites – a new group of famous musicians you wish everyone else knew but never quite got there. Example: Tinted Windows. I'm not saying any of these deserve less praise or respect. They're just not really supergroups. Now that we've established the criteria, let's look at a much shorter list of actual supergroups: TO SEE FULL LIST AND FULL ESSAY, GO HERE: NEW HOME of MUSIC is not a GENRE One thing everyone assesses right out of the gate is whether the new group is better than the old ones. In a few cases – CSNY, Bad Company, Foo Fighters, Madvillain & Run the Jewels – the new groups ARE better. Their music can stand alone with or without their origin groups – one thing I think truly makes a supergroup super. But in almost every case above and any I've missed, the answer is no. Them Crooked Vultures is not better than any of the bands those people came from. Neither Broken Bells nor Hollywood Vampires. And certainly not Audioslave or Velvet Revolver. Were they good bands? Yes. Did they bring something new to the conversation? To some degree, yes. Did they eclipse their old bands? Hell no. It was awesome to hear Cornell & Weiland sing again, and with such esteemed company. And there were several songs from each I really liked (“Cochise”, “Show Me How to Live” & “The Last Fight”, “Fall to Pieces”, to name just a few). But I don't think there's a doubt in anyone's mind that the new bands never came close to the artistic achievements of Soundgarden & STP. It's awesome they existed – both for the artists & for us. But they will always be footnotes. Exceptions like CSNY or Bad Company prove the rule: that supergroups on the whole are usually not so super. I was in several bands before REC, including my own solo career. Members of REC have been in other bands as well. That said, none of us are famous – either before or now. So we would not make this list. Which is totally okay. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/musicisnotagenre/support
Following in the path of multiple other states, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee announced Thursday that he will largely lift the state's indoor mask mandate, in place since last August, on Monday, March 21.
No matter the tool —Whatever materials —The method is Zen* * *In the last episode we ended by noting that the design of the method of Zen, as well as the equipment used in practicing it, were operative from the very beginning of the tradition. We said we would further explore the simplicity of both the method, and the gear needed to exercise it, in this segment. The broader scope of the intersection of methods and materials is a major concern in Design thinking, especially what is called design-build, the production dynamic of problem-solving in the material world.Typically for any solution to a real-world problem, it is not enough just to come up with a bright idea. It has to be tested in the real world, subjected to a developmental process that may involve going back to the drawing board repeatedly, until all the ins and outs of form following function have been satisfactorily addressed. Additionally, cost considerations typically play a determinative role, driving efforts to “cost-improve” the innovation to meet the evaluation of the market, expressed as sales.This rather mundane but familiar reality in the age of mass-marketing is useful as a metaphor for the development and propagation, or “marketing,” of Zen. Known for its extreme simplicity, material reserve and social restraint, the spread of Zen Buddhism nonetheless engendered some markedly extravagant cases of material consumption, as attested to by the colossal statuary, and imposing monasteries constructed in its countries of origin. The investment in material resources, talent and labor is only magnified by the fact that they were built by hand, in lieu of electricity or any other source of power, other than human muscle, and perhaps the occasional watermill. As someone who has a sense of what it takes to build something, touring some of these sites in Japan left me incredulous. It beggars the imagination that such edifices could have been accomplished absent an alien assist with laser-like precision tools, a sci-fi conjecture offered to explain the pyramids and other ancient, unexplainable wonders of the world.A sociological perspective might suggest looking at the development of lay householder practice as a design innovation in Zen's largely monastic history. Or the ideal of the homeless mendicant, in possession of seven basic items: three robes, a pair of sandals, sun hat, begging bowls, monk's bag (equivalent of today's ubiquitous backpack), et cetera, as a reductio ad absurdum of simplification, requiring no real investment in gear. Let alone whole buildings, as opposed to the monastic model, which required massive expenditures of time and treasure, energy and social capital to create whole communities, if somewhat codependent upon the societies of the times.Separation of church and state was apparently rudimentary, and our imagined isolation of the monastic community from the larger population is just that — imagined. Yet the emergence of householder or lay practice, honored as its own legitimate avenue of pursuit of spiritual training, is a relatively recent development. Exceptions to the rule abound, such as Vimalakirti and Emperor Ashoka in India, Layman Pang in China, and others, but they prove the general rule.Both approaches may be regarded as optional and historically successful solutions to the same set of problems, differing mainly in the design of delivery systems. In terms of contemporary location strategy, such as in the retail sector, the monastic model would fall into the category of the destination purchase — Big Box stores that draw shoppers from a radius of miles or more. The lay practice model would be more akin to the convenience store — the 7-Eleven, small units located at key intersections of traffic, currently tied to frequent stops, such as the gas station. Last I heard, there are something like 15,000 Soto and 8,000 Rinzai centers operative in Japan, most being small neighborhood temples.Extreme examples for the monk would include the hermitage, a solitary redoubt in the fabled grass hut or an available cave. Versus the lone householder, who manages a practice without benefit of an organized community. What is necessary for sustaining Zen practice, like any other problem, is a huge variable. The personal dimension remains relatively constant through time, while the social dimension evolves.The method of Zen, particularly its uniquely simple meditation, is the main action item we transmit to others, and in particular to the next generation. It is on them to bring it to fruition in their life, of course, but it is our responsibility to clarify the distinct and determinative aspects of zazen practice to the extent feasible. The dispositive message in promulgating our legacy is: Where Zen differs. That is, from the other forms of meditation on offer in the village square today. Which, by the way, were there from the beginning of the spread of Buddhism.Materials required for Zen practice are minimal at base, largely reflecting social accretions garnered from the cultures through which it has passed. Again, the monk's total toolkit was based on seven essential items, addressing the Design question: How much is enough? on a minimalist basis. Some wag put forth the notion that if you want to “sell” Zen to Americans, sell them the gear. Zen is a very material real-world approach, but not in the sense of spiritual materialism, Trungpa Rinpoche's coinage.If we examine today's suggested equipment for zazen, it consists largely of the same simple furnishings that would be found in any Japanese Soto temple: the humble floor mat (J. zabuton) and round support cushion (J. zafu). Variations include foam blocks of Tibetan origin, kneeling benches (J. seiza), and wedge-shaped cushions designed for chair-sitting, that help sustain the proper upright posture of the spine, instead of slumping.As a designer, I have a tendency to redesign everything, an urge that I need to keep in check to some degree. Accordingly, I have attempted the near-impossible: to improve upon the traditional gear for sitting upright for long periods of time. Particularly as I age, along with my contemporaries, the natural deterioration of the physical body suggests that additional attention may be appropriate to appurtenances and accessories designed to deal with the conditions of aging, inherent disabilities and other infirmities. No major breakthroughs yet, but we will keep on trying.Turning our attention to the design of the method itself, aside from the particulars of time-of-life and general health, we find the simple division into three areas of focus that Matsuoka Roshi emphasized: posture, breath, and attention. I like to encapsulate these under the rubric of “natural”: assuming the natural posture, finding and following the natural breath, and eventually recovering the natural mind.My use of “natural” may have had little or no relevance in the culture of the countries of origin, as they were perforce closer to nature than we are today. There were fewer buffer zones between the presence of aging, sickness and death than we see today, with our hospitals, clinics and extended care facilities with direct channels to the morgue and mortuary. Access to food, in the form of animal and vegetable products, was likewise not shielded from the reality of slaughter and butchering, with portions neatly packaged in sanitary packaging, as is normal today in much of the civilized world. What would be totally unnatural in earlier times is taken for granted today. So the term “natural” has resonance mostly in the social milieu.The form of meditation in Buddhism, beginning with what must have been yogic training for Buddha, has probably gone through countless permutations. Early emphasis on posture is seen in yogic poses (S. asana), focus on the breath in complex exercises (S. pranayama), and attention directed to mystical or trance-like states, as well as to the attainment of paranormal powers (S. siddhi). Thus our current take on the purpose and practical effects of zazen may not necessarily comport with those at any time in its history. Zen is always contemporary, but we have to revise its presentation to fit our times.When we research the techniques in contemporary Soto Zen meditation, such as counting the breath, we find that they may not be mentioned as such in the early records of instructions, such as Master Dogen's Fukanzazengi. However, we can probably safely assume that some such approaches were conveyed in person, with the spoken teachings of the day. The written record, while impressively extensive, has to represent the tip of the iceberg in comparison with the live dialog, as it does yet today.But the basic role of counting the breath in zazen is probably of a piece with that even in the earliest yogic teachings. Pranayama's detailed proportioning — via counting so many beats for the inbreath, holding in, the outbreath, and holding out — were most likely approximations to the slower and deeper pace and volume of the breathing cycle actually experienced by adepts, in deepest levels of sustained mediation. In other words, a model of the natural breath, not its specific manifestation. The natural breath, for any human being, may be supposed to be similar, notwithstanding biological variations in lung size and capacity. Smaller mammals breathe at higher rates than larger mammals, in keeping with their variance in metabolism and heart beat, as well as their life span expectancy. Breathing is a variable.Counting the breath, as taught in modern or ancient times, may be considered relatively peripheral to the ultimate purpose of zazen, as are rituals and protocols followed in group practice. Any such ancillary subroutine is clearly provisional, and subject to being transcended at some point in one's experience. Some teachers say that after counting the breath, one should follow the breath, tracking its progress from inception at the tip of the nostrils, through the throat and into the lungs, hitting bottom in the stomach, i.e. abdominal breathing; then reversing the process, finally exhaling through the nostrils until the lungs are empty. This description, and its visualization, is also provisional in the larger context of reverting to the natural breath. Eventually, the breath will take care of itself, like a gate swinging in the breeze. Until then, it does not hurt to follow the approximation developed by our teachers, as a model.So we should not ignore, nor should we get too attached to, the specific style of meditation or the instructions for doing it “right.” Understanding that the method of Zen has been highly refined over the centuries, we can imagine what it would be like if there were no legacy, no instructions recorded, and no support system for learning it, as represented by the infrastructure of Zen monasteries and temples. We would all have to sit down and invent, or discover, Zen for ourselves. This is a most startling aspect of the method as handed down to us. It is pointing to something primordial, a process that predates Buddhism itself. It is the most natural response to waking up to the profound and inconceivable problem of existence itself. This may be a problem without a solution. In which case the problem becomes how to live with this irreconcilable conflict. Zazen is not the solution itself, but is the method for arriving at it.Next time we will take a different tack in defining this problem, and Zen's unique approach to penetrating it. It is a koan, a gordian knot of universal proportions, yet not subject to intellectual solution. Don't give up.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

In this episode, Lindy joins us to discuss quick adaptations to everyday practices to increase engagement. We will run through a number of strategies that will not cost more time or money to improve the attention of your students. We like many of you find ourselves leveraging the same tasks throughout the years an are always looking to change it up and grad that attention of the students. What is engagement? Lindy describes engagement in 3 categories: behavioral, emotional, and cognitive. Behavioral is student behave in class, they don't act up, the bring their materials to class. Its their behavior in that class. Then there is emotional engagement. They feel connected to the school community. They are happy to be there. They act positively. When you are giving your lesson they are alert and are emotionally invested in what you are saying. And finally there is cognitive engagement. This is their intellectual engagement. They want to learn and think more deeply about the subject. They ask challenging question. Together this is big picture engagement. this is a long term disposition to learn. What happens to engagement over the years? Over an educational career it is normal for engagement to wain. Think of the complexity and specificity of the learning. Think about the general practice of a kindergarten teacher vs. a high school teacher. Exceptions aside the amount of reading increase, the expectation of compliance raises and the length of the learning tasks widens. In 2nd grade the instruction is designed to be quick, fast paced and interactive. With each passing year those opportunities lessens. Emotionally school continues to be described as enjoyable by the younger the students. Change your practice to engage the kids. You can try writing on novel surfaces. Beyond the whiteboard or Smartboard try writing on the windows or floor. They excitement alone is a great a
When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved mifepristone--the first of two drugs used in a medication abortion-- in 2000, the approval process came with a myriad of restrictions. Kirsten Moore, creator and director of the Expanding Medication Abortion Access (EMAA) Project, sits down to talk with us about the evolution of restrictions on medication abortion over the past 22 years, as well as the future of medication abortion access. In the mid-2000s, these restrictions were folded into an FDA program called Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS). These restrictions included a certification process for the clinician, requires that the medication be dispensed in person in the clinic, hospital, or medical office, and patients must fill out a consent form. During the pandemic, the FDA issued guidance for medications subject to REMS, easing restrictions on providers and patients—but medications requiring in-person dispersal was not included. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) sued the FDA, leading to a short period of time in 2020 when providers were able to consult with patients and prescribe medication abortion care through telemedicine and the mail. In January of 2021, the Supreme Court shut these abilities down. Still, in spring of 2021, the FDA announced that they would re-consider the current REMS restrictions. In December of 2021, the FDA announced the removal of the in-person distribution requirement for mifepristone and allowing in-person and mail-order pharmacy distribution. Unfortunately, expanded medication abortion access will, like many reproductive health services, be dependent on where you live. At this moment, 19 states prohibit the use of telehealth for abortion care (the number of states may rise to 26 depending on the future of Roe v. Wade). Many patients who are seeking an abortion are already facing structural, financial, and logistical barriers that make accessing this care extremely difficult to begin with. Even so, the FDA's lifting of unnecessary restrictions on medication abortion dismantles one less barrier to care for many.

What is the Vedic worldview on alcohol and alcohol consumption?In some ways, the ‘goal' of consuming alcohol and the goal of Vedic Meditation are contradictory. While Vedic Meditation increases our sense of Self, drinking alcohol does the opposite.However, a Vedic Meditation teacher will never tell a student they should stop drinking. In fact, the only thing a Vedic Meditation teacher advise is to meditate twice a day. This alone will put us in a position to make better choices for ourselves.In some cases, that may be the choice to reduce drinking alcohol, or even to stop drinking altogether. In other cases, the desire to drink might simply just go away so there isn't even a choice required. And in other cases still, there might be a desire to reduce alcohol and a recognition that some extra help is needed with that.In this episode, Thom takes a broad look at alcohol from the physiological and scientific perspective and also from a spiritual perspective. Whether you are a drinker or not, it's a discussion that goes beyond the ‘should or shouldn't' angle that often distorts thinking on the subject.Episode Highlights: [00:47] The Impact of Alcohol on Developing Higher Consciousness States[01:59] Q- Can You Share More About The Vedic Worldview on Alcohol Consumption?[02:07] Alcohol is Not a Barrier to Vedic Meditation[03:48] Not Speaking From Experience[05:23] Feeling Rosy[06:42] Vedic Meditation Can Reduce the Desire for Alcohol[08:40] Meditation Decreases Our Body's Tolerance for Toxicity[09:59] The Effects of Alcohol[11:12] Irreplaceable Brain Cells[12:41] A Natural Choice Gets MadeUseful Linksinfo@thomknoles.com https://thomknoles.com/https://www.instagram.com/thethomknoles/https://www.facebook.com/thethomknoleshttps://www.youtube.com/c/thomknoles https://thomknoles.com/ask-thom-anything/[14:14] Justifying the Choice to Drink Alcohol[15:23] Fermented Grape Juice or Unfermented Grape Juice?[16:12] A Very Graceful Intoxication[17:10] Long-Term Effects of Alcohol on the Body[18:38] Alcohol Decreases Longevity[20:02] The Rule of Exceptions[21:19] The Spiritual Angle[23:00] The Chemistry of Bliss[25:16] Meditators Live Longer With a Younger Body Function[26:26] Meeting Challenges Adequately[27:42] Alexander the Great Invaded India and Came Back With a Vedic Guru[29:07] The Deities Associated with Alcohol[32:37] A 12-Step Program[34:04] The Home of All the Laws of Nature[35:20] Beholden to a Gangster[37:05] The Big Self Takes Charge[39:00] Vedic Meditation Initiates the Awakening in You[40:06] Less Resistance to Seeking Help[41:48] The Process of Intoxication[42:44] "I'm Not Intoxicated"[43:53] Witnessing Intoxication[45:44] I Could Start Drinking Any Day

In this archive episode, Dennis explains a few circumstances where the Trooper 2 Step is not necessarily required to gain lawful entry. Recorded on 11/07/2020. Ohio v. Robinette, 519 U.S. 33 (1996), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the Fourth Amendment does not require police officers to inform a motorist at the end of a traffic stop that they are free to go before seeking permission to search the motorist's car. Schneckloth v. Bustamonte, 412 U.S. 218 (1973), was a U.S. Supreme Court case that ruled that in a case involving a consent search, knowledge of a right to refuse consent is a factor in determining whether a grant of consent to a search was voluntary, the state does not need to prove that the person who granted consent to search knew of the right to refuse consent under the Fourth Amendment. United States v.

One of the most common questions parents ask is "what are some exceptions to planned emancipation?" Many parents are on board with giving over control to their teenager BUT... [fill in the blank]. Today Jessica and Ashley try to guess what circumstances constitute a real exception to the planned emancipation schedule. Spoiler alert: there are only two!

English grammar has a lot of rules. If you are trying to learn English, you have to master these rules.However, there are also a few exceptions to the rules.And in this article, we are going to take a look at some of those exceptions. But before we get into it, let's first understand the rules of English grammar. English has come to be one of the most spoken languages in the world. And like many other languages, English has its roots in various facets of history. Some of the most challenging rules in the English language are proper use of the articles (A and The), confusion in the use of prepositions in different sentences, correct use of interactions (You're and You are), and maintaining an agreement between the subject and the verb.

As teachers and business-owners, we are faced with requests for exceptions ALL THE TIME. As a general rule, I tend to think exceptions lead to strained relationships. For the good of all parties involved, I like to keep boundaries clear and unwavering. However. Few things in music - or life - are rigid enough to maintain without any flexibility whatsoever. So, today, I'm sharing THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION to ask yourself before agreeing to an exception.

Should clubs (such as Liverpool FC) break their wage/pay structures to keep world class players such as Mo Salah?In this episode of The Straight Shootin' View, SSLJA gives his views on Mo Salah's contract negotiations with Liverpool FC and if the club should give him the wages he wants to stay.SSLJA looks at club wage structures and whether or not exceptions should be made for world class players and the potential impact (both ways) that making those kind of exceptions can have on the club and other players in regards to the business of football, citing examples such as Robin Van Persie & Alexis Sanchez who some say not breaking the wage structure for, led to Arsenal's stagnation as a club long term.For more information about Pitch Talk visit: Our Official Website - http://www.pitch-talk.comhttp://Facebook.com/pitchtalk (Become a fan & member of our Facebook group)http://Twitter.com/pitchtalk @pitchtalkhttps://www.instagram.com/pitchtalk/http://Youtube.com/pitchtalk Find & Subscribe to our audio - Add us to your favourite podcast app via RSS Feed - https://pitchtalk.podomatic.com/rss2.xmlPodomatic - https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/pitchtalkPodbean - https://pitchtalk.podbean.com/Apple Podcasts - https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/pitch-talk-podcast/id445883703Google Podcasts - https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkLnBvZGJlYW4uY29tL3BpdGNodGFsay9mZWVkLnhtbASpotify - https://open.spotify.com/show/0y9lR6WJaNLyAr7diAHhqh#upsellAmazon Music - https://music.amazon.co.uk/podcasts/ee0280cc-f15b-49bb-a3e2-b688e0dd49d5/Pitch-Talk-Podcast?Vurbl - https://vurbl.com/station/pitch-talk-podcast/Mixcloud Archive (Incl.

Sponsor: RePowerU — a free fitness practices assessment (a 10-minute questionnaire) http://rockymountainhpc.com/dr.-black.html Dr. Stephen Black is the CEO and Owner of Rocky Mountain Human Performance Center. He is an acknowledged leader in the field of sports medicine, rehabilitation, fitness, and sports performance. Dr. Black has worked extensively with professional and amateur athletes in many sports, leveraging his holistic and integrative approach to improve performance. Dr. Black is himself a long-time, high-level athlete, who knows personally as well as professionally the challenges and opportunities available to us all for slowing the effects of aging with individualized programming for higher fitness and superior performance. Dr. Black's philosophy is to proactively addressing imbalances, deficiencies, and poor movement patterns to help older athletes become healthier and stronger while having fun. Show Notes: not a transcript but a summary of the key points discussed with links to other material mentioned. Key Points Summary: Age: Chronological vs. physiological age: create a gap in your favorStart Early: the earlier you start in athletic, the better your health as you get older (don't wait!)Be Proactive: avoiding health problems has a much bigger payoff than solving health problems after they arrive.Consistency & Moderation: for the older athlete, consistency is key to derive the benefits of healthy behaviors, and moderation is important as we shift to prioritizing health over performance.Patience: progress toward health and fitness is a journey, not a destination.47 foods: stay within your food selections to find consistencyProtein: 1.5-2.2 grams of protein per kilo of body weight for an active person working out 1-3+ hours per day. And, err on the side of too much to compensate for worsening digestion and signaling in our bodies as we get older. Eat protein with carbs (1-to-3 ratio of protein to carbs)Weight-bearing Resistance Exercise: older athletes must get some weight-bearing resistance exercise to retain muscle mass and maintain bone health.Recovery: Use a 1-to-3 ratio. For every 1 dose of high intensity, 3 does of recovery. Dose = time exercising. “I'm as good once as I ever was”. But get the recovery to avoid injury and/or catastrophe. Q: Connection between Health and fitness today as well as between health and fitness into the distant future. Consider two sides of that questions: chronologic age vs. physiological age. One thing is the younger a person started participating in athletic activity, the greater their health as chronological age progresses. Exceptions can occur due to lifestyle changes and accidents. But putting deposits into the fitness bank helps delay aging. Q: One of the key questions is, for each person, what are the interventions that will make the most impact for the least investment, least effort? I assume it will be a unique conclusion for each person, as everyone is different genetically, and has had a unique life to date, but also each person has attempted in his or her own way to compensate for the impact of aging on health and fitness. So, how do you find t
