Host: Dr. Melanie Carminati, PT, DPT, GTS, NCPT BrooklynPhysicalTherapy.com Guest: Dr. Michael A. Werner, M.D., FACS MazeHealth.com Disclaimer: The medical information in this podcast is for informational purposes only, not individualized medical advice. For personalized care, consult your healthcare provider. About Dr. Michael A. Werner Dr. Michael A. Werner, Founder and Medical Director at Maze Health, is a board-certified urologist who received specialized Fellowship training in male infertility, surgery, and male sexual dysfunction at Boston University Medical Center. His private practice in Midtown Manhattan and Westchester, New York, is limited to two areas of specialization: male infertility and male and female sexual dysfunction. He's a frequent lecturer and author in medical journals and books on these topics. Exploring Men's Health After 70 In this episode, we'll discuss a crucial aspect of men's health after age 70, focusing on sexual health. Our previous podcast episode, "Sex After 70," primarily centered around female sexual health concerns with Dr. Dena Harrison, a gynecologist. However, we received numerous comments asking about men's sexual health and what can be done for men over 70 to maintain a fulfilling sex life. Dr. Werner, could you please share your clinical experience with male patients aged 70 and above? What are some common complaints they come in with in terms of sexual intimacy and sexual function? Dr. Werner explains that as people live longer, sexual issues in older men become more prevalent. The two primary age-related concerns he encounters are erectile dysfunction and difficulties with ejaculation. The discussion delves into the treatment options for these issues, such as penile implants, penile injections, oral medications, and more. Pelvic Pain and its Connection with Erectile Dysfunction The conversation shifts to discussing chronic pelvic pain syndrome in men, which is often not well understood. Dr. Werner elaborates on the different symptoms and their varied manifestations. Dr. Carminati, as a pelvic floor therapist, adds to the discussion by emphasizing the importance of pelvic floor physical therapy and how it can assist in managing pelvic pain and other related issues. Incorporating Radiofrequency Therapy (Winback Tecar): Dr. Carminati shares her experiences with radiofrequency therapy, specifically the Winback Tecar system, which she finds beneficial for treating various pelvic conditions. The therapy is described as a warming sensation, and it explains how it helps facilitate deep tissue work for male pelvic pain patients. Premature Ejaculation and Its Treatment Dr. Werner addresses premature ejaculation, emphasizing that it's not always a psychological issue but can be physical and, in some cases, lifelong. He discusses treatment options, including the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) to delay ejaculation and topical numbing agents. Addressing Low Libido The conversation then touches on low libido in older men, often related to declining testosterone levels. Dr. Werner highlights the importance of hormone replacement therapy and discusses how it can significantly improve libido in men. The Impact of Prostate Cancer Treatments on Sexual Function When it comes to patients who have undergone prostate cancer treatments, Dr. Werner explains the common effects on sexual function and discusses potential treatments. He highlights the importance of early intervention to address post-treatment erection issues and emphasizes the effectiveness of penile injections in these cases.

My guest in this episode is award winning author and playwright Gabriel Bergmoser. Gabriel is one of my youngest guests at 32 but, as you will hear, he has packed a lot into those years and he describes himself as ‘crime author, playwright, podcaster, actor, dog lover and massive Springsteen fan'. He was born in New Zealand but moved to Australia when he was a few months old and that has been home over since. He now lives in Melbourne but does a great job of painting a picture of what growing up in rural Australia was like for a creative, non-sporty boy who was an aggressively average student (his phrase not mine!) A visit to the cinema to see ‘The Fellowship of the Ring' lit his creative spark and it has stayed with him ever since. A quick glance at his Wiki page (Gabriel Bergmoser - Wikipedia) will show how prodigious and successful he has been over the past 10 years. Highlights include winning the Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award in 2015 and four years later signing a two-book deal with Harper Collins. The first of the books was ‘The Hunted' which was a worldwide success and resulted in a book deal with Faber in the UK and a subsequent film deal. Despite all that success Gabriel is clear eyed about the reality of being a creative in 2023 and the fact that there will always be ups and downs whoever you are. Similarly, he delivers a strong message about hard work and application being more important than talent and the need at times to ‘Just Do It'. As you would expect he tells a great story around each of his song selection which were: 90's Kiss Me Sixpence None the Richer00's Mr. Brightside The Killers10's Unbelievers Vampire Weekend20's Dorothea Taylor SwiftIf you would like to be on the show then please contact me at email@example.com Please follow and like Music Talks on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/musictalkspod .

Untiy is so very important. One of the hardest things in life is to get along with others. We are all different, and we will have our own opinions. Also, disagreements and disapproval of what others do may cause strife. Psalm 133:1 says this... "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”
What is a good definition of “culture,” and why is it so effective at conforming us to believe certain things, and to behave in certain ways?

Jared, Oriana and Ned discuss their collective choice of topic: Peter Jackson's version of The Return of the King. It's been twenty years since the conclusion of Jackson's three-film effort to adapt the entire Lord of the Rings was released, and it was easily the biggest profile release of the series, coming in with massive interest and attention, setting a variety of box office records in the process along with gaining widespread critical acclaim. It all resulted in a series of worldwide film awards and honors culminating with a famed clean sweep of Oscar wins including best picture, resulting in a tie with Titanic and Ben-Hur with eleven Oscars total but also the only one of those three films to literally win every category it was nominated for, a combined record that still stands. The film's general impact and that of the series as a whole is at this point undeniable, but how it holds up in a look back, caught somewhat between Fellowship's own unquestionable triumph and Two Towers's more stop-and-go successes, warrants its own discussion. What are the many changes made to the tangled relationship between Frodo, Sam and Gollum, and how does that play out as a result for both the film and the wider themes? How does the use of practical models and actual landscapes feed into the feeling of how the film both landed in the moment and held up upon later rewatching, even while it was also the biggest demonstration yet of the possibilities for CGI with massive military clashes and the like? Is it possible to actually lose count of just how many remarkable moments on a grand scale exist throughout the film, even as there are various “well, but…” caveats and questions to raise along the way? How has the whole series of film changed both the perceptions of Tolkien and the film industry in general? And how many endings are there, after all? (Surprise! It never ended, it's running somewhere in a theater right now, maybe.)Show Notes.Jared's doodle. And that's another epic trilogy down. (The earlier entries here and here.)Hurrah for the SAG-AFTRA strike ending and better (not perfect!) terms won.Our episode on evil. Evil!TheOneRing.net report on the return of the Eagle & Child pub. Jason Horowitz's New York Times story about that Italian Tolkien exhibition encouraged by Italy's favorite fascists. Sorry, did we say the quiet part out loud? (In the Guardian, Jamie Mackey with more context.)Our episodes on Peter Jackson's The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, with lots of notes about the series as a whole so we won't repeat everything here…The sole trailer for The Return of the King. But that's all they needed.Trilogy Tuesday! It was a crazy time and it was great. Here's a photo of the all-day pass given out, and here's an example of that film frame memento given out as well. The opening scene is really something, no lie. Friendly little worm there.The screenwriting guru Ned mentions is Robert McKee – per Brian Sibley's Peter Jackson biography, McKee had come to Wellington, New Zealand to give one of his lectures in 1988, and the New Zealand Film Commission invited Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and future contributing screenwriter for The Two Towers Stephen Sinclair to it and they all apparently took it very much to heart. So a long term impact but even so.The opening exchange between Sam, Frodo and Gollum. Really are some beautifully shot moments in this sequence.Oh did Christopher Lee have things to say in the run-up to the theatrical release.Our episode on the Rankin-Bass Return of the King. It is NOT very good.Yeah yeah the Arwen vision and Arwen dying and…well whatever.But boy that introduction to Minas Tirith. THAT'S how to make an entrance.And the beacons sequence, wow, still. Time zone issues aside.For examples of the Gondor theme earlier on in the series, skip ahead to about a minute into this clip.Ride the Empire Builder! If you like.Hurrah for John Noble (and hurrah for Fringe). Skip ahead three minutes for “The rule of Gondor is MINE!” moment, and the parting between Denethor and Faramir, phew.Minas Morgul, a triumph of John Howe design, glowing and clamped. (The skybeam is the skybeam but the sonic buildup rules.)The Holdo maneuver (it really was great, like the film itself)When Theoden and Eowyn part at Dunharrow, boy that'll ruin ya. That's two good actors very much in the moment.When Aragorn and Eowyn part at Dunharrow, it is very…shippy.“...and Rohan will answer!” Perfect.“The stars are veiled.” Are they, Legolas?Oh you know the Shelob scene. You know. “The Edge of Night” sequence is unnerving, beautiful and horribly sad.The Nazgul as the angels of death, in essence. However petty.Grond! It is great design for sure, plus armored trolls.Gothmog isn't bothered with your petty trebuchets.The Ride of the Rohirrim. No notes. But here come the mumakil…“I am no man!” Yeah, it rules.Air Bud, the lingua franca of us all.That crazy Witch-king mace. Gotta love it.And indeed skip ahead to the end of the clip for that mumak takedown by the scrubbing bubbles. Plus Tracy Jordan with the wisdom. It still only counts as one, we guess.Sam finds Frodo in Cirith Ungol – it's a good moment!“On this good earth!” (Well, maybe not GREAT earth.)“I can carry you!” A beautiful sequence, no doubt.The Crack of Doom. Great acting moments, wonderful moment for Gollum, but not over the cliff again…And yeah when Mount Doom completely explodes…Will they? Won't they?A great way to do individual bows via a movie.“You bow to NO one.” (Cue big emotions.)A wordless toast indeed. And a pumpkin. (And a case of the not gays.)The Grey Havens sends us off. It really is a great Turner-inspired scene.“Into the West” and the end credit portraits. Great job Annie. (The young filmmaker who passed was Cameron Duncan, to correct Ned there.)The Triplets of Belleville is a real treat, see it when you can.Enjoy all the Oscar wins!Ah yes the Eragon movie. Welp.And the Chronicles of Narnia tried. But. (Good luck Greta!)This ran after the episode was recorded but the LA Times had a piece on the movie anniversary and its impact, especially in New Zealand itself.Our Rings of Power and Hobbit films episodes have more about our general qualms there.Want to hear those exclusive podcasts we're talking about on Megaphonic?

I guess December is technically Lord of the Rings month because we watched the whole trilogy and up first is 2001's The Fellowship of the Ring.

Envelopes for giving are available at the Connection Center. Gifts can be given through our website at fellowshipconway.org/give or through the app. You can set up recurring giving or one-time gifts with a credit card, debit card, or through your checking account. Christmas Offering In December, we are taking up a special offering for the Operation Christmas Child Special Pack (held in October 2024). The gifts received will determine the number of boxes we are able to send. To send each gospel opportunity (box), it costs $20 for items, transportation, and the tools needed to share the hope found in Christ with a child. Please consider giving above and beyond your regular giving to the worthy cause of getting the gospel to sensitive areas that are difficult to reach. You can use the envelope in a seat near you or give online by selecting “Christmas Offering” from the options. For an idea of what we are trying to raise, last year we packed 2,600 boxes, which is equal to $52,000.
"Do not be Afraid" - Behold All Things NewLuke 1:30In the Christmas story, there are a few words or phrases that stand out to us. They highlight those moments of special significance in the story of the birth of Christ. Over the five weekends in December, come and reflect with us on those moments, seeing how they encouraged and directed the hearts of the hearers and how their timeless message reaches us today.“DO NOT BE AFRAID” – Luke 1:30 -- The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.“BLESSED” – Luke 1:41-42 -- When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!“SAVIOR” -- Luke 2:11 – “For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”“BEHOLD” – Luke 2:10 -- But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joywhich will be for all the people.“GLORY TO GOD” – Luke 2:13-14 -- And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

This week we finish our sad and grief stricken tale of the Remnant Fellowship. We go over more interpersonal failings within the church and its members and how in this case Religion is just a smokescreen to control those around you. As with all cults these tactics are dangerous so stay alert out there friends. Stay safe and enjoy some holiday cheer.
