The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Dr. Marvin Dunn. A former naval officer, historian and author, Dr. Dunn is a professor emeritus of Florida International University. Our first chinwag was in 2013, in the midst of the Trayvon Martin murder trial, when we discussed his spectacular work, The Beast in Florida, A History of Anti-black Violence. Dr. Moore gives a scholarly account of decades of organized terrorism against black residents of the sunshine state. He has a whole chapter on the 1923 Rosewood massacre, where an entire town of black people were violently assaulted and forcibly removed from their property. Dr. Dunn recently visited his own land in Rosewood, where he plans to recognize the White Terrorism from a century past. However, while visiting his property, Dr. Dunn and his son Doug, were Racially Terrorized by a 61-year-old White Man, David Allen Emanuel. Dr. Dunn strategically employed social media to publicize this event, which may have motivated local enforcement officials to act. Subsequently, Emanuel was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. We'll discuss this tragedy as well as Gov. Ron DeSantis's “Stop WOKE Act,” which might prohibit Dr. Dunn from teaching his students about this event using appropriate historical context.

Raymond Adderley joins me on Gamechangers LIVE, from the studio at Florida International University's College of Communications, Architecture, & the Arts! Raymond is an 18-year old who ran for Broward County's School Board, and although he didn't win it, he is a very impressive young man that has a tremendously promising career ahead of him. I had the opportunity to get to know him and his story in this episode. Thanks to Lenny Nelson for editing this episode. Below is his Thank You to supporters from his campaign: "Although Broward voters did not send me to the School Board, I'm not stopping my fight for our community. Seventeen months ago, I filed to run for Broward County School Board, against all odds. I was sixteen years old and a junior in high school. So many people told me no, but despite it all, I answered the call to serve my community. I am so grateful that so many Broward voters put their faith in me to represent them. I ran for School Board because I watched my father be shot in front of me in Miramar, when I was six years old. I learned in that moment what it was like to be voiceless. Throughout the campaign, I have fought to bring a voice to the voiceless. This has always been about our community and our movement to make necessary and long overdue change. I am not going anywhere. I will always be your fighter and your voice. The past few days have proven that we need more accountability and transparency. I will continue to fight for exactly that. We must work together, as a community, to ensure that all voices are being heard. This campaign sent shockwaves across the country on what young people are ready to do. My message to young people across the country is this: don't take no for an answer. Keep on fighting. I will be with you every step of the way. Although this race comes to an end for me, I would not have made it this far without the help of this amazing community that I grew up in, my team, my friends, and my family. Thank you to anyone that believed in me, voted for me, or simply showed your support. I am forever grateful."

I recently had the honor of meeting and speaking with Dr. Chantrell Frazier about how she balanced showing up authentically in academia, navigating grief and loss while remaining motivated and inspired to complete her doctoral degree in biochemistry from Florida International University. (The following was written by Michelle Chernicoff) Chantrell Frazier grew up a competitive athlete but, when it came to her education, the only person she was trying to beat was herself. After earning her bachelor's degree at an HBCU–Savannah State University –Chantrell looked for a place to combine her passion for forensics and biochemistry. She applied for the PhD program at FIU and found a place in the Furton Research Lab. After her successful defense, she became the first Black woman at the university to earn her PhD in biochemistry. The Florida Education McKnight Fellow and Florida AGEP Pathways Alliance (FL-AGEP) scholar's groundbreaking research has received departmental funding and funding from the Dubai Police. Her work has sparked collaborative efforts within the FIU research community, as her optimized protocols have been applied to examine human odor profiles to understanding the odors that attract mosquitos. Chantrell was encouraged by a mentor to take up space as a woman of color in the field. She hopes she is the first of many to successfully defend their degrees. Her volunteer work includes the FIU Student Access and Success Center (SASC), the City of Miami Gardens, and mentorship of students on the secondary and tertiary level to conduct research at FIU. Upon graduation, Chantrell will join the faculty at Framingham State University in Massachusetts as a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellowship in Chemistry and hopes to encourage more women of color to pursue STEM fields.

Because medication errors account for a great number of patient deaths, a legal nurse consultant needs to be diligent in detecting their possible role in a medical malpractice case. Christine Dorman, critical care nurse practitioner, legal nurse consultant, and expert witness, shares with us her expertise in this area. After going through some basic clues that suggest medication errors, she goes into more detail. The administration of sedatives and paralytics requires close attention, as this is an area where errors may occur. Cardiac medication administration is another problematic area that calls for examination. For those who miss hand-written records, Christine emphasizes the value of electronic records for their programmed ability to detect a medication error. The biggest problem, though, is understaffing of personnel. Although the level of stress may have gone down from the height of the COVID pandemic, hospitals are still feeling the repercussions, especially since highly skilled personnel have retired or changed jobs due to burnout. Lack of communication can aggravate the situation, and Christine emphasizes the importance of accurately communicating essential information. Christine's ability to communicate her expertise makes this podcast highly informative and valuable. Be sure to take the opportunity to learn from her. Join me in this episode of Legal Nurse Podcast to learn about Catastrophic Critical Care Medication Errors - Christine Dorman What are clues that a medication error may have occurred in a patient's treatment? Why should special attention be paid to the administration of sedatives or paralytics? How do staffing shortages, such as occurred at the height of the pandemic, affect nursing care? Why is effective communication so vital? How does the use of electronic records help prevent medication errors?

Videos: Dr. Ryan Cole: Covid Vaccine Side Effects Are Like A Nuclear Bomb New Rule: F*** tha Casting Police | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO) Renters In America Are Running Out Of Options   Consuming green vegetables, supplements suppresses inflammatory bowel disease Sichuan University in China and from Cedars Sinai Medical Center, August 17, 2022 The dietary supplement chlorophyllin alleviates inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, according to researchers from the Center for Diabetes and Metabolism Research at Sichuan University in China and from Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. In addition, chlorophyllin significantly reduces mortality related to IBD, weight loss, diarrhea and hidden blood in the stool, intestinal epithelial damage and infiltration of inflammatory cells. The findings are published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Gastrointestinal and Liver Physiology, and the study has been chosen as an APS select article for August. Current therapeutics for IBD include medications that suppress the immune system (immunosuppressants) and surgery. However, long-term use of immunosuppressive treatments could result in severe adverse effects, including opportunistic infections and even organ failure. In this study, researchers found taking an oral chlorophyllin supplement—a compound derived from the green pigment found in plants—reduced colitis and abnormalities in the intestinal epithelia of mice. Also, consumption of green vegetables and chlorophyllin may be helpful for IBD recovery, in part through alleviation of inflammation and autolysosomal flux (a process that uses lysosome to degrade and remove toxic molecules and organelles). Green pigment found in these foods and supplements can initiate a feeding signaling to modulate autophagy in the cells, which suppresses IBD symptoms. (next) Coriander is a potent weapon against antibiotic resistant bacteria University of Beira Interior (Portugal) August 10, 2022 The problem of antibiotic resistant bacteria has been deemed a public health crisis, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reporting that invasive MRSA – or methicillin-resistant S. aureus – infections affect 80,000 people globally a year, and claim over 11,000 lives. But, what the CDC will never tell you is how coriander can potentially save lives. Researchers in Portugal now say that that the oil from coriander – a common kitchen spice – is quite toxic to a wide range of harmful bacteria, leading to hopes that it may be enlisted in the fight against MRSA and other pathogens. The scientific research about coriander is promising Researchers at University of Beira Interior used flow cytometry to study the effects of coriander oil on 12 different disease-causing types of bacteria, including E. coli, Salmonella, B. cereus and MRSA. In the study, published in Journal of Medical Microbiology, the oil significantly inhibited bacterial growth – especially that of MRSA and E. coli. (next) Tumour blood supply stopped in its tracks by modified natural compound University of New South Wales (Australia), August 10, 2022 Researchers have discovered how the modified natural compound dextran-catechin disrupts formation of blood vessels that fuel growth in the childhood cancer neuroblastoma. Researchers have discovered how a modified natural compound disrupts angiogenesis, the formation of blood vessel networks, in neuroblastoma tumours, stopping them laying down the vital supply lines that fuel cancer growth and spread. Dextran catechin is a sugar based conjugated form of catechin commonly found in green tea, red wine, dark chocolate and apple peels. Lead author Dr Orazio Vittorio of Children's Cancer Institute found that the natural polyphenol catechin slows tumour growth in the laboratory but breaks down too quickly in the body to be effective. (next) Researchers discover how DDT exposure contributes to Alzheimer's disease risk Florida International University and Rutgers University, August 17, 2022 A new study led by researchers from Florida International University and Rutgers reveals a mechanism linking the pesticide DDT to Alzheimer's disease. Published in Environmental Health Perspectives, the study shows how the persistent environmental pollutant DDT causes increased amounts of toxic amyloid beta, which form the characteristic amyloid plaques found in the brains of those with Alzheimer's disease. According to Jason Richardson, professor at FIU's Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work and corresponding author, the study further demonstrates that DDT is an environmental risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.”The vast majority of research on the disease has been on genetics—and genetics are very important—but the genes that actually cause the disease are very rare,” Richardson says. “Environmental risk factors like exposure to DDT are modifiable. So, if we understand how DDT affects the brain, then perhaps we could target those mechanisms and help the people who have been highly exposed.” The study focused on sodium channels, which the nervous system uses to communicate between brain cells (neurons), as the potential mechanism. DDT causes these channels to remain open, leading to increased firing of neurons and increased release of amyloid-beta peptides. In the study, researchers demonstrate that if neurons are treated with tetrodotoxin, a compound that blocks sodium channels in the brain, the increased production of the amyloid precursor protein and toxic amyloid-beta species is prevented. “This finding could potentially provide a roadmap to future therapies for people highly exposed to DDT,” Richardson says. (next) Study shows how food preservatives may disrupt human hormones and promote obesity Cedars-Sinai Medicine Institute, August 9, 2022 Can chemicals that are added to breakfast cereals and other everyday products make you obese? Growing evidence from animal experiments suggests the answer may be “yes.” But confirming these findings in humans has faced formidable obstacles – until now. A new study published in Nature Communications details how Cedars-Sinai investigators developed a novel platform and protocol for testing the effects of chemicals known as endocrine disruptors on humans. The three chemicals tested in this study are abundant in modern life. Butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) is an antioxidant commonly added to breakfast cereals and other foods to protect nutrients and keep fats from turning rancid; perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a polymer found in some cookware, carpeting and other products; and tributyltin (TBT) is a compound in paints that can make its way into water and accumulate in seafood. The investigators used hormone-producing tissues grown from human stem cells to demonstrate how chronic exposure to these chemicals can interfere with signals sent from the digestive system to the brain that let people know when they are “full” during meals. When this signaling system breaks down, people often may continue eating, causing them to gain weight. (next) Standing desks can improve well-being, reduce stress among office workers University of Leicester (UK), August 17 2022 Standing desks can improve workers' performance as well as cut their time sitting by an hour each day, according to new research. Study authors add that getting up from an office chair also boosts well-being and energy levels, while reducing stress. “High levels of sitting time are associated with several health related outcomes and premature mortality, with high levels of workplace sitting associated with low vigor and job performance and high levels of presenteeism.” Presenteeism is the practice of being present at one's place of work for more hours than is required, especially as a manifestation of insecurity about one's job. Sedentary lifestyles increase the risk of chronic conditions including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, anxiety, and cancer.

During the twentieth century, drugs were administered with much less care that in the current medical settings. Your host, Pat Iyer, recalls sometimes-fatal insulin shock therapy being administered to psychiatric patients. However, the rising number of deaths from medical and medication errors in the U. S. has made this crisis a significant issue, both in medical and legal arenas. Christine Dorman, a critical care nurse practitioner, has a doctorate and is a legal nurse consultant who specializes in critical issues. She brings her expertise to our discussion about how medication errors occur and how they can be prevented. She describes the many safeguards in place to ensure that the right medication is administered to the right patient, by the right route, at the right time, and at the right frequency. The participation of onsite critical care pharmacists further reduces the margin of error. Nonetheless, errors continue to occur. Christine and Pat discuss a Vanderbilt Hospital case wherein a nurse inadvertently administered a paralytic agent, Vercuronium, with tragic consequences. She also describes some other medicines that should be administered with great care and oversight. Knowing which drugs require the most attention and supervision helps an LNC in analyzing a medication errors case. In addition, Christine recommends checking dosages, patients' weights, the administration of antidotes. The LNC also needs to be or become familiar with the correct dosages and routes of delivery. Pharmaceutical companies continue to introduce new and diversified medications, a situation that makes their correct prescription and administration challenging for hospital and family medical practices. For you, as an LNC, this is an important area for learning. This podcast will help you learn more.
