Our guest for today's show is Randy Huntington. Randy is a track and field coach, who has spent his recent years as the national track and field coach for the Chinese athletics association and has over 45 years of coaching experience. Huntington is rated as a USATF Master Coach in the jumps, has been the coach for many world-class athletes over the years, including eight Olympians and seven World Championship Team members. Mike Powell and Willie Banks set world records in the long jump and triple jump, respectively, while under his tutelage. More recently, Randy has had tremendous success coaching in Asia, a capstone of which has been Su Bingtian, who recently set the Asian 100m dash record of 9.83 seconds at age 31. En route to his 100m record, Su broke the world record in the 60m (as a split time) with a 6.29, which converts to around a 4.07s 40 yard dash. When a teenager, or relatively untrained individual takes a few tenths off of their 40 yard dash, or drops a half second in the 100m dash over several years time, this is a normal and natural occurrence, and isn't something that really demands digging far into. On the other hand, when an already elite athlete, who is at, or slightly past their “prime” years, moves into their 30s and smashes sprint records, this is something that is truly worth putting a close eye on. On the show today, Randy Huntington speaks on some of the training elements that helped sprinter, Su Bingtian achieve his recent results. Randy goes into his views on special strength training for speed, particularly on the level of the lower leg, and speaks on the use of banded and wearable resistance in speed training, as well as some nuts and bolts on resisted and sled sprint work. On the back end of the show, Randy gets into training the elastic and fascial systems of an athlete, and how to optimize an athlete's elastic response to training in plyometrics and beyond.

What are the new tools that we use to study the bible? These methods try to improve our understanding of the text's literal meaning, which is the first horizon for interpreting scripture. Three popular methods are Source Criticism, Form Criticism, and Redaction Criticism. They are valuable tools but also have limits of which we should be aware. Today we discuss their possible benefits and dangers. Check these sources out:Smith, Steven C. The Word of the Lord: 7 Essential Principles for Catholic Scripture Study.

Emil: Hey everyone, welcome back for another episode of the remote real estate investor. My name is Emil Shour and today I'm joined by Tom Schneider and Michael Albaum. In today's episode, we're going to be covering the top 10 cheapest states to buy a house in 2021. So this is from an article off the roofstock blog that I wrote a while ago called the top 25 cheapest ways to buy a house in 2021. We're going to run through some of the numbers like median home value, one year price change five year price change and median rent to give you guys an idea of which markets may be good to target or at least do a deeper dive into So let's hop into this episode Emil: Alright guys, so this is actually a blog post I helped create on the Roofstock blog, and it's covers the top 25 cheapest states to buy a house. We're going to cover the top 10 And just to give everyone some context, the data here is from Zillow for home values and historic price trends. And that is as of June 2021 So that data is a couple months old but still you know relatively easy for people to kind of compare the top 10 We also have the median rent data is coming from go banking rates and the median rent of a three bedroom place and I'm gonna just run through the top 10 But before I do Tom you look like you have something a burning question… Tom: I do my mouth is like like half open alright a meal in writing this article states a pretty big area you know a big Is there a reason why it wasn't at like a metro just because like it I think of cheapest I mean you know California is a great example you know you can live in a very expensive area or you can live in a very less expensive area. Emil: Yes Tom: Curious. Go ahead. Emil: Great point Tom. i We don't have an article around the best the cheapest cities I think just because there are so many unique city so look at that it would be very hard to compile the data. So we have cheapest states. I think it's just easier to get 52 data points rather than I don't know 1000s Tom: Fair fair fair. I think there's I think there's I think there's a middle ground in there as well you know between from from city or whatever to state I dig I'm I'm picking you out a little bit I like I like this let's get into it. Let's get into it. Emil: Tom just ruined the episode and we'll end it here. So thanks, Tom. Michael: Timeout you said you said 52 So are we talking territories as well like Guam and Puerto Rico? Emil: I Have not attended a geography class in quite a long time Michael so I don't even know if I'm correct in saying 52 Or if it's 50. Michael: 50 states. Emil: 50 states you know what? I'm just I'm done with this episode. guys. You guys take it from here Michael: Emil's like enough of this so I don't get fired like enough of this. Just trying to help you out. Emil: I'm doing you guys a favor. How about that? Alright, so let's let's get into this. I'm curious if you guys can get some states in the top 10 If you had to guess. Pick three each you guys… Tom: Is Mississippi on the list. Emil: Ding ding ding Tom one for one. Tom: All right, Michael, your opportunity to take the lead. Do your two guesses… Michael: Show me Alabama. Emil: Alabama? Ding ding ding correct as well. All right, one one here. Tom: Show me Louisiana. Emil: Louisiana is a not in the top 10 Michael: Ah, man. All right. Emil: First incorrect answer. Tom. What do you have? Tom: I got two guesses here. We're tied one to one. Show me Arkansas. Emil: Arkansas is ding ding ding in the top 10 Tom: All right. No looking at anything on your on your computer. Michael. Michael: Keep your hands where I can see them Tom: Show me Oklahoma. Emil: Oklahoma in the top 10 Ding ding ding Tom is a liar. For three Mike. Michael you can you can take a consolation swing here and at least try to get two out of three. So Tom: Earn your blue ribbon or purple. Michael: That's right. That's right. Tom: The one they give to the kids. Michael: Show me, Ohio. Emil: Ohio is in the top Ding ding ding. Tom: There you go, Michael. Emil: Alright, so Michael finishes two out of three. Tom three out of three. Stellar. Perfect. Michael: Wow. That's what Tom's used to hearing. Emil: Very impressed, guys. Tom: That's kind of how I operate. I thrive on positive reinforcement. Thank you Emil. Emil: You're welcome, alright, let's start at the let's, let's work our way backwards. So we'll, we'll start at 10. And then we'll go to number one and Michael: Are these in order of pricing. Emil: 10 being the least cheap. Exactly, yeah. So it's by median home value. So the cheapest will be number one in terms of median home value according to Zillow data. Alright, so number 10. We have well let's just keep this going. Thing number 10 is Tom: Indiana Emil: Jesus Tom, Have you have you read this article? Michael: He memorized the last night before bed. Tom: No, that's it that's great. That's good. I mean Michael said Ohio Michael said Ohio so I just figured you know someone who's kind of friends with Ohio Emil: Tom you need to go make a lot of bets today because you're on it. So please just go like buy some alt coins and stocks and whatever today go buy a rental property till you can't miss today. Alright, so Indiana number 10 median home value comes in at 185,805. Our one year price change so looking at one year ago compared to today? Well this is as of June 2021 13.2% Five year price change 45.3% In the median rent on a three bedroom place I think this looks at apartment and a house from go bank rates $1,052 Tom: Some some gross yield there. Emil: All right. So that's that's Indiana. All right, who's number nine Michael you get first shot. Michael: And it's not one of the ones we've already named? Emil: It is one of the ones you named? Michael: Oh, shoot. Emil: I'll give you one further, it's the one you it's one you named? Michael: Oh, man. So I got a 50/50 shot. I'm gonna say Ohio. Emil: Bing bing bang Ohio coming in at number nine. So our median home value in Ohio $181,756. Or one year price change 14.4%. And our five year price change coming at 45.3%. And median rents on that three bedroom place is $1,024. Tom: A price change is so crazy. I mean, all those numbers Michae: That's unbelievable. Emil: Oh, actually, ooh, this this article has the cheapest lists like three or four cheapest cities within these states to buy a place. So I don't know where that was pulled. Exactly. Let me see if I can find it real quick from this article. So from Yahoo, cheapest place. So it was an article called The cheapest places to buy a home in every state. So that's where this looks at. All right, so Tom, maybe we get some of the stuff you're looking for. So I'll backtrack a little Indiana. The cheapest cities to buy a house are Gary Anderson, Muncie and Richmond. And then for Ohio. We have Youngstown, Warren, Dayton and Marion. Emil: Alright, so number eight. I'll go ahead and just dive right in Kansas comes in at number eight. Our median home value is $176,898. Our one year price change not as high as number 10 or nine coming in at 11.3%. And our five year price change coming in at 33.8%. Our median rent comes in at $1,050 on a three bedroom place. Our cheapest cities within Kansas are Hutchinson Kansas City, Topeka and Salina. Michael: Topeka, capital of Kansas. Tom: You guys all invest pretty in that around that area. Do you guys have an exposure to Kansas? Or you're more of Missouri? Emil: I'm Missouri. Michael: I've invested in Kansas City, Kansas doing a flip out there so that's almost getting wrapped up? Emil: Are you in the Kansas side or the Missouri side? Michael: On the Kansas side? I'm like fairly certain I double check. Which sounds ridiculous as I'm saying those words. Emil: Alright, moving on to number seven. I think you guys guessed this one as well. I don't remember who said it Michael: Probably Tom because I mean he's flawless. Emil: So it's Alabama who said Alabama? Tom: I was gonna I was gonna say it I missed out I was gonna I was gonna guess that was the one. Emil: Oh my god this guy is just he can't miss that. Michael: That was me. That was me. Michael had Alabama. Yeah. With the second of my, one of two. Yeah. Emil: All right. So Alabama median home value coming in at $170,184. Our one year price change 11.9%. Our five year price change. We have 34.6% and our median rent on a three bedroom place coming in at $1060 Cheaper cities within Alabama to buy a house are Gadsden Birmingham, Montgomery and Phoenix city or Phenix City Tom: Another market Michael has some exposure to Michael: Yep, yeah. Birmingham Alabama Emil: Birmingham. Number six Michael is another place you invest in so go for it. What do you got here? What state Michael: Oh, Emil: We already covered Ohio so what else could it be? Other side of Ohio. Oh, other side of where you invest in Ohio, Michael: Tennessee? Kentucky? Kentucky like South. I guess it kind of like like, Emil: Yeah, Cincinnati right south of Cincinnati. Yeah. Toki See, I know what I'm talking about. Michael: Geography is tough man. Emil: Alright, Kentucky median home value we got $168,998 our one year price changes 10.8% or five year price change. We have 36.3% and our median rent on a three bedroom place comes in at $1,025. Our cheapest cities to buy a house within Kentucky are Hopkinsville Covington. Owensboro. And bowling green. Michael: Oh, Convington made the list man. Covington that's where I heavily invest. Yeah, it's awesome. Tom: Kind of related talking about like, you know, West's of states are directional. There was this. I think it might have started on Tik Tok. This guy's like, he said, he's at a there's like a music playing in the background. He's like, Okay, here's the situation. And they're playing like, West Virginia. Take me home. Michael: Country Road, right? Tom: And he's like, here's the situation. This song is not about West Virginia. It's about the western part of Virginia. And that, like, closes and then opens them just like super hungover the next day. It's like, is there something like that's just like, so perfect about that. Here's the situation. I mean, I hope this stays in the episode because people who've seen this will be like, Yeah, that's Michael: Really relatable. Tom: But the western part of Virginia, not West Virginia. Anyways, continue. Emil: I've seen tic tock videos I've ever actually been on tick tock. It just sounds like a black hole of silly videos. Tom: Yeah, Michael: I think that's a fair assessment. Tom: Yeah, yes. Me too. Emil: Is there other types of videos? Or is it just silly videos? It's only thing I've seen like silly tick tock video clips. Tom: I think that's it. But it's funny all like a lot of it does ends up going on to other platforms too. So. Emil: Right, right. I think I've seen them on YouTube. Anyway, moving on. Number five, we've got Iowa our median home value in Iowa we have $165,955 or one year price change coming in at 6.8%. Five year price change 23.1% And our median rent $1,021. Something interesting that I'm noticing as we climb up the list in cheapness is that the percentage price change so appreciation is getting lower and lower so far. Tom: Huh? Interesting, Michael: Seemingly, and also that the median rent is fairly consistent. Emil: That too, yeah, median rent is hovering around 1000 bucks a little over 1000. All right, cheapest cities within Iowa to buy a house. We got Waterloo, Sioux City, Davenport and Council Bluffs. Michael: Okay, Emil: All right. Number four, Oklahoma, which I think you guys I think somebody mentioned Michael: Tom mentioned Michael: Tom! Tom: Windy City, Mr. Three for three Emil: Windy City. Man somebody is worse that geography than me. All right, Oklahoma. median home value $150,754. One year price change 10.4%. So stepping up a little bit from our Iowa numbers. Five year price change coming in at 29.1% in our median rent on a three bedroom place $1,015 Or cheapest cities to buy a house within Oklahoma or Muskogee, Muskogee Lawton Shawnee and Enid. I probably butchered every single one of those. Michael: Yeah, if anybody knows the proper pronunciation, please feel free to leave us a comment. Emil: Spell it phonetically for us. Alright, number number three we get into top three good stuff. All right. I think someone mentioned Arkansas as well or console comes in number Michael: Tom again. Tom: Mr. Three for three did. Emil: Alright Arkansas. Tom: T for T for short. TFT Emil: Our median home value on Arkansas $149,120 our one year price change 10.4%. Our five year price change 30% And the median rent falling below $1,000 For the first time $926. Our cheapest cities within Arkansas to buy a house are Pine Bluff. Texarkana North Little Rock and Fort Smith. Tom: I like Oh, I like all these areas anyways, just having like visited and I don't know, Michael: Have you visited all those areas? Tom: I pretty much most of them yeah. Michael: Like every single one that a meal is listed so far or just physically in Arkansas, Tom: I haven't I haven't visited a lot in Iowa but I mean, Alabama, I've visited lots of Alabama. I had that. I don't know that we mentioned a weird deal where I played football in college at UC Berkeley at Cal and then I got hurt my senior year and then found a weird loophole that I couldn't play D one because my eligibility was expired, but I found a loophole allow me to play D two. So in the best D two football is like in the south, so I lived in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and we like traveled around a bus and like went to tons of these like spots in Mississippi or Kansas. Arkansas. Yeah. Hello. Ours are in Texarkana. I That's just proving me as a you know, not as a novice if by calling it that anyways, go ahead. Pass the mic. Emil: Such a west coast dude Michael: This is the situation this is a podcast is not about Arkansas. Michael: It's about the western part of Ar… Emil: Alright, number two, I think you somebody mentioned Mississippi did someone mention Mississippi? Michael: Yep. TFT did Tom: TFT, yours truly. Emil: Median median home value in Mississippi we've got $140,818 One year price change 8.4% Or five year price change 24.7% In our median rent coming in at $989 Tom: This just my last derailing on that on living out there. So I had like mentally prepared for the heat. I was just ready right dog days and it was hot. But I ready. I had mentally said I'm going to sweat a lot. There's going to be kind of hot but I honestly I honestly kind of enjoy it like you know give me a sauna give me whatever steamroom what I was not prepared for is come wintertime it snowed a little bit there. And I was not ready. Yeah, right. It snows there. Emil: I had no idea it snowed there. Tom: It's not like feet, but you know, you'll get dustings every once in a while and Alright, number one, go ahead and do it. Interrupting cow, mooo! Emil: Before you before you come in, we gotta we got to talk about our cheapest place to buy a house within Mississippi. Okay, those are Jackson Greenville Meridian Gulfport, so now. Michael: All right All right. All right. Emil: One. I don't think anyone guessed it. It was West Virginia. Michael: This is a situation. Tom: Wait the western part of Virginia? Emil: How ironic and perfect could that have been Michael: That is so good. Tom: TFT. Emil: See, you can't miss today I'm telling you. Take every dollar you have and you'll make any investment that you possibly desire to get good day for you. That's West Virginia. Number one. median home value. We're dropping off a bit from number two. So 117,768 is our median home value one year price change at 7.1%. Five year price change 19.3% In our median rent for a three bedroom place, coming in at $912 our cheapest cities within West Virginia to buy a house Bluefield, Clarksburg, Beckley and Huntington. And there you go top 10 cheapest states to buy house in 2021. Michael: So what are each of your biggest takeaways from this? Emil: I think I already mentioned mine, I was surprised that the percentage change didn't like, I would think the cheaper the house is, you know, a $5,000 increase on 117,000 versus 160,000 is gonna be a higher percentage. I was expecting the percentage to be higher in price changes when it wasn't so that was surprising to me. Tom: My surprising is in some of the states it's like they're like It's like bigger cities that are the least expensive one so like Arkansas, like Little Rock is I think might be the capital I love like in like capital cities and just in that there's like kind of like a natural draw for like economy and, and all that kind of stuff. So it's cool in some of these less expensive in some less expensive states like you can buy, you know in that whatever Capitol Corridor, whatnot city or like around the suburbs and still have less expensive so I thought that was an interesting tidbit. Michael: Nice. Emil: How about you, Michael? Michael: MIne was just you could go to the 10 cheapest cities and over the last five years. Get A 20% increase on your value by doing literally nothing. And so it's crazy when we talk about the power of real estate and all of the great benefits that it has, like, if you bought a property there, for 100, grand five years ago, it'd be worth 120 grand today, like, that's unbelievable for the fact that you were getting paid probably that whole time, too, with a tenant in place. So like, it's just, it just speaks volumes to the power of real estate and how the multiple ways that it pays you even in like, less expensive markets is pretty profound Emil: Ya true. Tom: Yeah. I think also, Michael and I, we've done a bunch of webinars together, and one of them, we were going through some assumptions around building a passive income flow of $100,000. And within the assumptions, I think we had the purchase price, like somewhere north of $100,000. And like, someone had commented, like, Hey, you can't buy a house for 120,000 or 100 and whatever it is, like, yes, you can like that. You definitely can. And yeah, these are all 10 states in which that is very doable. Michael: Yeah. And it was funny, I was like, I'm pretty sure I just bought two of them not to like shame that person. But I was like, guy, you just like incorrect with your facts, like I literally just bought two of them. So Tom: I think it's a good exercise of like, kind of taking blinders off. Like perhaps that is your strategy only to buy in these really large cities. And that's great. And then you know, you can't buy $100,000 house or $150,000 house. But if you know, you're kind of open to moving around and shifting your strategy to meet specific goals, like there, there definitely are markets to do that. Michael; I think even in some like in some of these bigger markets, and even capital cities, if the median home price is 100, you know, is $300,000, I'm sure you can still find properties for 150k. They just need a bunch of work. So depending on what your investment thesis is, and what you're prepared to do, I think that there are opportunities in every market, you just have to be willing to uncover them or be willing to do what it takes to then profit from those opportunities. Emil: I've seen that a lot of like, like Midwest cities, like I invest in St. Louis, and there are their homes that sell for a million plus still even in St. Louis, and their homes that sell for 50k. Like there's a huge, huge, huge disparity. You know, one home was probably built 120 years ago and is fully dilapidated and needs need some love and the other one is like a mansion but still like there. You can same city, you can have a huge disparity. Tom: Hey, guys, I think we're going full circle from the very beginning of the episode, when I was kind of teasing a meal about, Hey, why did you guys do states? Why don't you do like a little bit, you know, not like the largest possible, you know, where even within each city like there's just, you know, really dramatic range. I mean, here in the Bay Area where I live in Northern California, you know, there's much smaller cities like not smaller, but less expensive, right. You know, perhaps Richmond or Vallejo or like Stockton and then you have areas like Piedmont and Menlo Park and all of these spots. So you know, even at every, every level, there's just really dramatic range. Emil: Yep. But in California there there is definitely no $100,000 properties, that's for sure. Maybe a shed in someone's backyard, but that's about it. Tom: Working on one right now. Emil: Are you doing a shed? Are you building an ADU? Tom: Uh, it's in a level electrical. It won't have a bathroom in it. Emil: It's made to be like your office like an office area Tom: Exactly. Office gym 10 by 18 I kind of wish I did it a little bigger like man 12 by 20 would have been like kind of fun but 10 by 18 is still very good it's basically the equivalent of like two rooms in one room so and doing prefab I think I've talked about before but anyways, the long journey and getting it the concrete truck should be coming any any moment now to lay the piers for the foundation of it. Emil: Alright guys, I'm gonna I'm gonna send this home before we meander as we always do. So if you've made it this far, thank you for watching. Thank you for listening, and we will catch you on the next episode. Happy investing. Tom: Happy investing. Michael: Happy investing.

"Dreams Are Messages From the Deep..." It's a very special edition of Everything is Permitted, as the team reviews the highly anticipated Dune adaptation from the visionary director, Denis Villeneuve. Join the team as they break everything from the film down, from it being a faithful adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel, the scale and scope, to the amazing cast of characters who brought the Fremen and great houses of Atreides and Harkonnen to life. Later, Julian takes a spacing guild transport to where Dune all started for him: Huntington, NY. There he talks about the film with his father Royal Brown, the man who bought him his first copy of the book. Did they agree on Villeneuve's adaptation, or does Royal stand by the extravagance of David Lynch's 1984 cult version? All that and more on this very special edition of EIP.

The inspiration of scripture allows for multiple layers of interpretation. One way of describing this is the four senses of scripture: literal, allegorical, moral, and anagogical. The literal sense comes first. Then, the three spiritual senses build upon the initial literal sense. Check these sources out:Scott Hahn, ed., Catholic Bible Dictionary.

Content warning: Adult themes, childhood illness. We've never seen an author-agent relationship like this! Jonathan and Renee not only joke, but regularly roast each other—showing a level of comfort most can only dream of. We learn about their journey, from meet-cute (which Renee nearly forgot) to Jonathan playing hard to get (even though she was his top choice), and how they both liked that the other would fight for the work. They both needed a creative partner who'd tell it like it is—and, as you'll soon hear, they very much found it. We also talk about his experience working with Audible, how his third book made his narrator *and* the sound engineers cry, and what's next for his characters. Jonathan Fredrick is the author of the Cain City Series (Cash City, Hum Little Birdie, and the newly-released Bad Men Will Come), which were inspired in-part by his hometown of Huntington, West Virginia. After spending 15+ years living in Los Angeles and working as a writer, filmmaker, and actor, Jonathan now resides in Columbus, Ohio with his wife and three sons. You can find his work here: https://www.audible.com/pd/Cash-City-Audiobook/B06XX1WTC1?qid=1636417545&sr=1-1&ref=a_search_c3_lProduct_1_1&pf_rd_p=83218cca-c308-412f-bfcf-90198b687a2f&pf_rd_r=4Y83FRQSK0JYTBJYWP8X In addition to being on Faculty here at the Manuscript Academy, Renee C. Fountain is President of GH Literary. A publishing industry veteran, Renee is a former reviewer for Kirkus and New York Journal of Books, and spent five years as a story analyst and book scout for The CW Television Network. During her almost decade-long tenure with major houses (Harcourt Brace and Simon & Schuster), Ms. Fountain had the great fortune of working with some of the best writers and illustrators in the publishing world. Additionally, with more than ten years of licensing and branding experience, she has been involved in creating book-related merchandise including iconic favorites such as Raggedy Ann and Nancy Drew; as well as brokering film and television options. Renee is looking for all types of adult and YA fiction and non-fiction. She prefers: thrillers, horror/dark fantasy, urban/contemporary fantasy, humor, pop-culture, memoirs, and narrative/commercial. She DOES NOT represent screenplays, previously published books (including self-published), Westerns, Hard Science Fiction, Space Opera, Middle Grade, Picture Books, Erotica, Poetry, Novellas or Short Story Collections.

Today on Boston Public Radio: We begin the show by asking listeners about their reactions to the results of election day yesterday. Art Caplan weighs in on how the country should approach vaccinating children aged 5-11, and why even some vaccinated parents might be hesitant to vaccinate their young children. Caplan is the Drs. William F. and Virginia Connolly Mitty Professor and founding head of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU School of Medicine in New York City. Juliette Kayyem breaks down the latest news across the political divide, including the meaning of new Republican catchphrase “let's go Brandon,” and a QAnon rally in Dallas yesterday, where supporters expected John F. Kennedy Jr. to emerge, despite having died over 20 years ago. Kayyem is an analyst for CNN, former assistant secretary at the Department of Homeland Security and faculty chair of the homeland security program at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. Meredith Goldstein takes questions from listeners on all things love, including on how having a baby changes relationships and how short men can cope with the insecurities of dating apps. Goldstein is an advice columnist and features writer for the Boston Globe. Her advice column, Love Letters, is a daily dispatch of wisdom for the lovelorn that has been running for more than a decade. She also hosts the Love Letters podcast.

On this West Virginia Morning, for a lot of writers and publishers, Appalachia means stories of the country and the coal mining or farming experience, but that's not true for all Appalachian writers. We hear from Huntington-based author Marie Manilla who identifies as an “urban Appalachian.”
Today, we are talking about a few apps and websites that are helping people with dementia keep their brains active. In previous episodes, we've talked about how an active brain can potentially slow the progression of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. If you are interested in learning more about this, visit our website for more information. We are going to be highlighting a few options we have found that you and your loved one may want to explore. Now let's move on to the rest of the show. An active brain can help slow the progress of dementia and other memory-impairing diseases. Doing daily exercises may help a person with dementia recall memories longer. One easy way to keep your brain active is by using the technology around you. In today's world, we can access almost anything using a smartphone or computer, so why not use technology to help people with dementia? The majority of people with Alzheimer's or other dementias today are over 65. Many of these individuals are not what you would call tech-savvy, but many apps and websites today are designed specifically for seniors with dementia. They are easy to use and engaging. The first app we want to tell you about today is called MindMate. It was created by three volunteer caregivers, Patrick, Suzanne, and Roger. The three have said they created MindMate because “Watching people we cared for succumb to memory loss left us with the belief that there must be something we can do to help the ones we love. Why weren't there any tools to help care for those with Alzheimer's and Dementia and keep caregivers sane?” According to MindMate.com, united in their dedication to creating more resources, the three decided to develop a mobile app for other caregivers like themselves. With the help of Dr. Terry Quinn from the University of Glasgow's Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, the team began to translate contemporary research in Dementia care into an actionable, digital platform. Based on this research, the MindMate App was born. Estate Planning and Elder Law Services says that this free app, available for Apple, Android, and computers, offers brain games and workouts to help with attention, memory, problem-solving, and cognitive speed. MindMate also features other tools to stimulate brain and general health, promoting good nutrition, physical exercise, mental stimulation, and social interaction. The site allows you to take a memory test online and promptly emails you your results. Another app similar to MindMate that you may be familiar with is Lumosity. It is one of the earlier brain-training apps in the market and there's a reason that it is still widely used today. According to Lumosity, there have been over 20 peer-reviewed publications in academic journals using Lumosity games or assessments. In one study, our scientists conducted a randomized trial involving 4,715 participants in order to study whether cognitive performance improves after training with Lumosity. The test group trained with Lumosity, while the control group trained using crossword puzzles. Both groups trained five days per week, for fifteen minutes a day. After ten weeks, the Lumosity group improved in performance across a battery of cognitive assessments. In fact, they improved more than twice as much as the control group did.* More specifically, the Lumosity group showed statistically significant improvements on subtests of working memory, arithmetic reasoning, and processing speed. There is a free version of the app, or you can pay $11.95 a month to have access to all that the app offers. Another unique app we came across is the Spaced Retrieval App by Tactus Therapy. Tactus Therapy explains that this Spaced Retrieval Therapy app uses the scientifically proven method of spaced retrieval training to help people with dementia or other memory impairments to recall important information. Recalling an answer over multiplying intervals of time, such as 1 minute, 2 minutes, 8 minutes, and so on, helps to cement the information in memory. Spaced Retrieval Therapy is an enhanced interval timer with independent data tracking and prompts. It automatically increases the time between prompts with correct responses and decreases it with incorrect ones. This app will help clinicians, family members, and students keep track of the intervals and performance as they practice up to 3 memory targets. This app is specifically geared towards helping people with dementia remember new information longer. The app requires a one-time payment of $4.99. Communication and strengthening existing social connections and relationships can help improve someone with dementia's overall health. Many people with dementia want to maintain their relationships, but find themselves pulling away from their loved ones because they may not be able to easily follow conversations or stress over what others will think of them after a dementia diagnosis. According to the creators of AmuseIT, isolation can be a problem for those living with dementia, and it can be difficult for those who care for them to know how to engage. AmuseIT is an app designed to promote conversation. It contains over 1000 simple quiz questions with a strong visual component. In addition to facilitating connection between dementia patients and caregivers who use the app, AmuseIT stimulates memory and reasoning and is easy to use, even for those intimidated by technology. You can buy the app for $3.49. Your loved one may repeatedly call you or others as their disease progresses. Someone with dementia may not remember calling you only two minutes prior and call you several times. If your loved one is in a care facility and is having trouble adjusting to a new environment, they may also want to call you repeatedly and become agitated when they are unable to talk with you. According to Estate Planning and Elder Law Services, Alz Calls is a chatbot designed for patients who repeatedly ask for their family, struggle with transitions to new environments, or need social interaction. Family members can record their voice, add a photo that will pop up for the patient to recognize, and answer frequent questions so that the patient can have an interactive conversation when the caregiver is not available to talk. You can record yourself saying numerous phrases by following prompts provided by Alz Calls or making them yourself. A caregiver will help your loved one use the patient side of Alz Calls and will respond to their calls using your recordings. You have full access to all calls that your loved one makes through Alz Calls. Recordings are stored for two weeks at a time. One therapy app that we are interested in is Constant Therapy. Constant Therapy Health talks about their app, saying that by combining AI and real-world evidence in our easy-to-use app, we're delivering clinically proven, personalized brain exercises that can help people reignite their cognitive, speech, and language abilities. And we're continuously optimizing the world's understanding of the factors contributing to brain health so that we can serve people across a range of neurological conditions. You can use the app on your own or with a clinician. The app is $24.99 a month but has a yearly option that includes an Amazon tablet, too. The last thing we want to bring up today is a website called MEternally. This website is best suited for those that are not used to technology and would rather participate in offline activities. MEternally offers activity cards, videos, games, and other physical products that help people with dementia connect and reminisce with those around them. MEternally tells us that they believe that our mix of life experiences, professional expertise and willingness to speak honestly about dementia, creates an environment where we are able to create products that are meaningful and thoughtful. Our own personal experiences with family members affected by Alzheimer's, Huntington's and Parkinson's Diseases reinforces our personal commitment to not just those with diagnosis of one of these horrific diseases but to those with other forms of dementia. Reminiscence benefits not only those with dementia. When we tell people about our lives, we are sharing our history and our identity. By viewing photo collections we initiate conversations about our favorite things and share our life stories with others. This allows us to reflect on the things and people in our present and past. By doing so we are preserving and sharing our history and reflecting on our worth and the importance of our own existence. If you would like to learn more about any of the apps or websites we talked about today, visit our show notes for the resources we used today. Do you have any favorite apps or websites that you or a loved one with dementia uses? Let us know on our website or social media pages! We want to say thank you for joining us here at All Home Care Matters, All Home Care Matters is here for you and to help families as they navigate these long-term care issues.

Brad Buckley serves as the Youth Pastor at College Park United Brethren Church in Huntington, Indiana. Before hearing a clear direction from God that ministry was where God wanted him, Brad struggled to know what he was supposed to do with his life. While all his friends left high school for college or a trade job, he took a year and a half gap-year to figure out what direction God had for him. We talk a lot about how mentors were so important in his life when making these decisions and the importance of taking life one step at a time. Then, he reads his letter to his younger self.

Raspberries, ellagic acid reveal benefits in two studies Oregon State University, October 1, 2021. Articles that appeared recently in the Journal of Berry Research report that raspberries and compounds present in the fruit could help support healthy body mass and motor function, including balance, coordination and strength. In one study, Neil Shay and colleagues at Oregon State University fed mice a high fat, high sugar diet plus one of the following: raspberry juice concentrate, raspberry puree concentrate, raspberry fruit powder, raspberry seed extract, ellagic acid (a polyphenol that occurs in a relatively high amount in raspberries), raspberry ketone, or a combination of raspberry ketone and ellagic acid. Additional groups of animals received a high fat, high sugar diet alone or a low fat diet. While mice that received the high fat and sugar diet alone experienced a significant increase in body mass, the addition of raspberry juice concentrate, raspberry puree concentrate or ellagic acid plus raspberry ketone helped prevent this effect. Of note, mice that received raspberry juice concentrate experienced gains similar to those of animals given a low fat diet. "We hope that the findings from this study can help guide the design of future clinical trials," Dr Shay stated. In another study, Barbara Shukitt-Hale, PhD, and her associates at Tufts University's Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging gave 19 month old rats a control diet or a diet enhanced with raspberry extract for 11 weeks. Psychomotor behavior was assessed during week 7 and cognitive testing was conducted during weeks 9-10. Animals that received raspberry performed better on psychomotor coordination and balance, and had better muscle tone, strength and stamina than those that received a control diet. "These results may have important implications for healthy aging," stated Dr Shukitt-Hale. "While further research in humans is necessary, animal model studies are helpful in identifying deficits associated with normal aging." Massage doesn't just make muscles feel better, it makes them heal faster and stronger Harvard University, October 6, 2021 Massage has been used to treat sore, injured muscles for more than 3,000 years, and today many athletes swear by massage guns to rehabilitate their bodies. But other than making people feel good, do these "mechanotherapies" actually improve healing after severe injury? According to a new study from researchers at Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), the answer is "yes." Using a custom-designed robotic system to deliver consistent and tunable compressive forces to mice's leg muscles, the team found that this mechanical loading (ML) rapidly clears immune cells called neutrophils out of severely injured muscle tissue. This process also removed inflammatory cytokinesreleased by neutrophils from the muscles, enhancing the process of muscle fiber regeneration. The research is published in Science Translational Medicine. "Lots of people have been trying to study the beneficial effects of massage and other mechanotherapies on the body, but up to this point it hadn't been done in a systematic, reproducible way. Our work shows a very clear connection between mechanical stimulation and immune function. This has promise for regenerating a wide variety of tissues including bone, tendon, hair, and skin, and can also be used in patients with diseases that prevent the use of drug-based interventions," said first author Bo Ri Seo, Ph.D., who is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Core Faculty member Dave Mooney, Ph.D. at the Wyss Institute and SEAS. Seo and her coauthors started exploring the effects of mechanotherapy on injured tissues in mice several years ago, and found that it doubled the rate of muscle regeneration and reduced tissue scarring over the course of two weeks. Excited by the idea that mechanical stimulation alone can foster regeneration and enhance muscle function, the team decided to probe more deeply into exactly how that process worked in the body, and to figure out what parameters would maximize healing. They teamed up with soft robotics experts in the Harvard Biodesign Lab, led by Wyss Associate Faculty member Conor Walsh, Ph.D., to create a small device that used sensors and actuators to monitor and control the force applied to the limb of a mouse. " The device we created allows us to precisely control parameters like the amount and frequency of force applied, enabling a much more systematic approach to understanding tissue healing than would be possible with a manual approach," said co-second author Christopher Payne, Ph.D., a former Postdoctoral Fellow at the Wyss Institute and the Harvard Biodesign Lab who is now a Robotics Engineer at Viam, Inc. Once the device was ready, the team experimented with applying force to mice's leg muscles via a soft silicone tip and used ultrasound to get a look at what happened to the tissue in response. They observed that the muscles experienced a strain of between 10-40%, confirming that the tissues were experiencing mechanical force. They also used those ultrasound imaging data to develop and validate a computational model that could predict the amount of tissue strain under different loading forces. They then applied consistent, repeated force to injured muscles for 14 days. While both treated and untreated muscles displayed a reduction in the amount of damaged muscle fibers, the reduction was more pronounced and the cross-sectional area of the fibers was larger in the treated muscle, indicating that treatment had led to greater repair and strength recovery. The greater the force applied during treatment, the stronger the injured muscles became, confirming that mechanotherapy improves muscle recovery after injury. But how? Evicting neutrophils to enhance regeneration To answer that question, the scientists performed a detailed biological assessment, analyzing a wide range of inflammation-related factors called cytokines and chemokines in untreated vs. treated muscles. A subset of cytokines was dramatically lower in treated muscles after three days of mechanotherapy, and these cytokines are associated with the movement of immune cells called neutrophils, which play many roles in the inflammation process. Treated muscles also had fewer neutrophils in their tissue than untreated muscles, suggesting that the reduction in cytokines that attract them had caused the decrease in neutrophil infiltration. The team had a hunch that the force applied to the muscle by the mechanotherapy effectively squeezed the neutrophils and cytokines out of the injured tissue. They confirmed this theory by injecting fluorescent molecules into the muscles and observing that the movement of the molecules was more significant with force application, supporting the idea that it helped to flush out the muscle tissue. To pick apart what effect the neutrophils and their associated cytokines have on regenerating muscle fibers, the scientists performed in vitro studies in which they grew muscle progenitor cells (MPCs) in a medium in which neutrophils had previously been grown. They found that the number of MPCs increased, but the rate at which they differentiated (developed into other cell types) decreased, suggesting that neutrophil-secreted factors stimulate the growth of muscle cells, but the prolonged presence of those factors impairs the production of new muscle fibers. "Neutrophils are known to kill and clear out pathogens and damaged tissue, but in this study we identified their direct impacts on muscle progenitor cell behaviors," said co-second author Stephanie McNamara, a former Post-Graduate Fellow at the Wyss Institute who is now an M.D.-Ph.D. student at Harvard Medical School (HMS). "While the inflammatory response is important for regeneration in the initial stages of healing, it is equally important that inflammation is quickly resolved to enable the regenerative processes to run its full course." Seo and her colleagues then turned back to their in vivo model and analyzed the types of muscle fibers in the treated vs. untreated mice 14 days after injury. They found that type IIX fibers were prevalent in healthy muscle and treated muscle, but untreated injured muscle contained smaller numbers of type IIX fibers and increased numbers of type IIA fibers. This difference explained the enlarged fiber size and greater force production of treated muscles, as IIX fibers produce more force than IIA fibers. Finally, the team homed in on the optimal amount of time for neutrophil presence in injured muscle by depleting neutrophils in the mice on the third day after injury. The treated mice's muscles showed larger fiber size and greater strength recovery than those in untreated mice, confirming that while neutrophils are necessary in the earliest stages of injury recovery, getting them out of the injury site early leads to improved muscle regeneration. "These findings are remarkable because they indicate that we can influence the function of the body's immune system in a drug-free, non-invasive way," said Walsh, who is also the Paul A. Maeder Professor of Engineering and Applied Science at SEAS and whose group is experienced in developing wearable technology for diagnosing and treating disease. "This provides great motivation for the development of external, mechanical interventions to help accelerate and improve muscle and tissue healing that have the potential to be rapidly translated to the clinic." The team is continuing to investigate this line of research with multiple projects in the lab. They plan to validate this mechanotherpeutic approach in larger animals, with the goal of being able to test its efficacy on humans. They also hope to test it on different types of injuries, age-related muscle loss, and muscle performance enhancement. "The fields of mechanotherapy and immunotherapy rarely interact with each other, but this work is a testament to how crucial it is to consider both physical and biological elements when studying and working to improve human health," said Mooney, who is the corresponding author of the paper and the Robert P. Pinkas Family Professor of Bioengineering at SEAS. "The idea that mechanics influence cell and tissue function was ridiculed until the last few decades, and while scientists have made great strides in establishing acceptance of this fact, we still know very little about how that process actually works at the organ level. This research has revealed a previously unknown type of interplay between mechanobiology and immunology that is critical for muscle tissue healing, in addition to describing a new form of mechanotherapy that potentially could be as potent as chemical or gene therapies, but much simpler and less invasive," said Wyss Founding Director Don Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., who is also the Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology at (HMS) and the Vascular Biology Program at Boston Children's Hospital, as well as Professor of Bioengineering at SEAS. Vitamin E could help protect older men from pneumonia University of Helsinki (Finland), October 7 2021. An article that appeared in Clinical Interventions in Aging reported a protective role for vitamin E against pneumonia in older men. For the current investigation, Dr Harri Hemilä of the University of Helsinki, Finland analyzed data from the Alpha-Tocopherol Beta-Carotene (ATBC) Cancer Prevention Study conducted in Finland. The trial included 29,133 men between the ages of 50 to 69 years who smoked at least five cigarettes daily upon enrollment. Participants received alpha tocopherol (vitamin E), beta carotene, both supplements, or a placebo for five to eight years. The current study was limited to 7,469 ATBC participants who started smoking at age 21 or older. Among this group, supplementation with vitamin E was associated with a 35% lower risk of developing pneumonia in comparison with those who did not receive the vitamin. Light smokers who engaged in leisure time exercise had a 69% lower risk compared with unsupplemented members of this subgroup. The risk in this subgroup of developing pneumonia by age 74 was 12.9%. Among the one-third of the current study's population who quit smoking for a median period of two years, there was a 72% lower risk of pneumonia in association with vitamin E supplementation. In this group, exercisers who received vitamin E experienced an 81% lower pneumonia risk. Dr Hemilä observed that the benefit for vitamin E in this study was strongest for older subjects—a group at higher risk of pneumonia. "The current analysis of individual-level data suggests that trials on vitamin E and pneumonia on nonsmoking elderly males are warranted," he concluded. Toxic fatty acids to blame for brain cell death after injury New York University, October 7, 2021 Cells that normally nourish healthy brain cells called neurons release toxic fatty acids after neurons are damaged, a new study in rodents shows. This phenomenon is likely the driving factor behind most, if not all, diseases that affect brain function, as well as the natural breakdown of brain cells seen in aging, researchers say. Previous research has pointed to astrocytes—a star-shaped glial cell of the central nervous system—as the culprits behind cell death seen in Parkinson's disease and dementia, among other neurodegenerative diseases. While many experts believed that these cells released a neuron-killing molecule to "clear away" damaged brain cells, the identity of this toxin has until now remained a mystery. Led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, the new investigation provides what they say is the first evidence that tissue damage prompts astrocytes to produce two kinds of fats, long-chain saturated free fatty acids and phosphatidylcholines. These fats then trigger cell death in damaged neurons, the electrically active cells that send messages throughout nerve tissue. Publishing Oct. 6 in the journal Nature, the study also showed that when researchers blocked fatty acid formation in mice, 75 percent of neurons survived compared with 10 percent when the fatty acids were allowed to form. The researchers' earlier work showed that brain cells continued to function when shielded from astrocyte attacks. "Our findings show that the toxic fatty acids produced by astrocytes play a critical role in brain cell death and provide a promising new target for treating, and perhaps even preventing, many neurodegenerative diseases," says study co-senior author Shane Liddelow, Ph.D. Liddelow, an assistant professor in the Department of Neuroscience and Physiology at NYU Langone Health, adds that targeting these fats instead of the cells that produce them may be a safer approach to treating neurodegenerative diseasesbecause astrocytes feed nerve cells and clear away their waste. Stopping them from working altogether could interfere with healthy brain function. Although it remains unclear why astrocytes produce these toxins, it is possible they evolved to destroy damaged cells before they can harm their neighbors, says Liddelow. He notes that while healthy cells are not harmed by the toxins, neurons become susceptible to the damaging effects when they are injured, mutated, or infected by prions, the contagious, misfolded proteins that play a major role in mad cow disease and similar illnesses. Perhaps in chronic diseases like dementia, this otherwise helpful process goes off track and becomes a problem, the study authors say. For the investigation, researchers analyzed the molecules released by astrocytes collected from rodents. They also genetically engineered some groups of mice to prevent the normal production of the toxic fats and looked to see whether neuron death occurred after an acute injury. "Our results provide what is likely the most detailed molecular map to date of how tissue damage leads to brain cell death, enabling researchers to better understand why neurons die in all kinds of diseases," says Liddelow, also an assistant professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at NYU Langone. Liddelow cautions that while the findings are promising, the genetic techniques used to block the enzyme that produces toxic fatty acids in mice are not ready for use in humans. As a result, the researchers next plan is to explore safe and effective ways to interfere with the release of the toxins in human patients. Liddelow and his colleagues had previously shown these neurotoxic astrocytes in the brains of patients with Parkinson's, Huntington's disease, and multiple sclerosis, among other diseases. Clinical trial for nicotinamide riboside: Vitamin safely boosts levels of important cell metabolite linked to multiple health benefits University of Iowa Health Care, October 3, 2021 In the first controlled clinical trial of nicotinamide riboside (NR), a newly discovered form of Vitamin B3, researchers have shown that the compound is safe for humans and increases levels of a cell metabolite that is critical for cellular energy production and protection against stress and DNA damage. Studies in mice have shown that boosting the levels of this cell metabolite -- known as NAD+ -- can produce multiple health benefits, including resistance to weight gain, improved control of blood sugar and cholesterol, reduced nerve damage, and longer lifespan. Levels of NAD+ diminish with age, and it has been suggested that loss of this metabolite may play a role in age-related health decline. These findings in animal studies have spurred people to take commercially available NR supplements designed to boost NAD+. However, these over-the-counter supplements have not undergone clinical trials to see if they work in people. The new research, reported in the journal Nature Communications, was led by Charles Brenner, PhD, professor and Roy J. Carver Chair of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in collaboration with colleagues at Queens University Belfast and ChromaDex Corp. (NASDAQ: CDXC), which supplied the NR used in the trial. Brenner is a consultant for ChromaDex. He also is co-founder and Chief Scientific Adviser of ProHealthspan, which sells NR supplements under the trade name Tru NIAGEN®. The human trial involved six men and six women, all healthy. Each participant received single oral doses of 100 mg, 300 mg, or 1,000 mg of NR in a different sequence with a seven-day gap between doses. After each dose, blood and urine samples were collected and analyzed by Brenner's lab to measure various NAD+ metabolites in a process called metabolomics. The trial showed that the NR vitamin increased NAD+ metabolism by amounts directly related to the dose, and there were no serious side effects with any of the doses. "This trial shows that oral NR safely boosts human NAD+ metabolism," Brenner says. "We are excited because everything we are learning from animal systems indicates that the effectiveness of NR depends on preserving and/or boosting NAD+ and related compounds in the face of metabolic stresses. Because the levels of supplementation in mice that produce beneficial effects are achievable in people, it appears than health benefits of NR will be translatable to humans safely." The next step will be to study the effect of longer duration NR supplementation on NAD+ metabolism in healthy adults, but Brenner also has plans to test the effects of NR in people with diseases and health conditions, including elevated cholesterol, obesity and diabetes, and people at risk for chemotherapeutic peripheral neuropathy. Prior to the formal clinical trial, Brenner conducted a pilot human study -- on himself. In 2004, he had discovered that NR is a natural product found in milk and that there is pathway to convert NR to NAD+ in people. More than a decade of research on NR metabolic pathways and health effects in mice and rats had convinced him that NR supplementation had real promise to improve human health and wellness. After consulting with UI's institutional review board, he conducted an experiment in which he took 1 gram of NR once a day for seven days, and his team analyzed blood and urine samples using mass spectrometry. The experiment showed that Brenner's blood NAD+ increased by about 2.7 times. In addition, though he reported immediate sensitivity to flushing with the related compound niacin, he did not experience any side effects taking NR. The biggest surprise from his metabolomic analysis was an increase in a metabolite called NAAD, which was multiplied by 45 times, from trace levels to amounts in the micromolar range that were easily detectable. "While this was unexpected, I thought it might be useful," Brenner says. "NAD+ is an abundant metabolite and it is sometimes hard to see the needle move on levels of abundant metabolites. But when you can look at a low-abundance metabolite that goes from undetectable to easily detectable, there is a great signal to noise ratio, meaning that NAAD levels could be a useful biomarker for tracking increases in NAD+ in human trials." Brenner notes this was a case of bidirectional translational science; having learned something from the initial human experiment, his team was able to return to laboratory mice to explore the unexpected NAAD finding in more detail. Brenner's mouse study showed that NAAD is formed from NR and confirmed that NAAD levels are a strong biomarker for increased NAD+ metabolism. The experiments also revealed more detail about NAD+ metabolic pathways. In particular, the researchers compared the ability of all three NAD+ precursor vitamins -- NR, niacin, and nicotinamide -- to boost NAD+ metabolism and stimulate the activity of certain enzymes, which have been linked to longevity and healthbenefits. The study showed for the first time that oral NR is superior to nicotinamide, which is better than niacin in terms of the total amount of NAD+ produced at an equivalent dose. NR was also the best of the three in stimulating the activity of sirtuin enzymes. However, in this case, NR was the best at stimulating sirtuin-like activities, followed by niacin, followed by nicotinamide. The information from the mouse study subsequently helped Brenner's team design the formal clinical trial. In addition to showing that NR boosts NAD+ in humans without adverse effects, the trial confirmed that NAAD is a highly sensitive biomarker of NAD+ supplementation in people. "Now that we have demonstrated safety in this small clinical trial, we are in a position to find out if the health benefits that we have seen in animals can be reproduced in people," says Brenner, who also is co-director of the Obesity Research and Education Initiative, professor of internal medicine, and a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Diabetes Research Center at the UI. Protecting the ozone layer is delivering vast health benefits Montreal Protocol will spare Americans from 443 million skin cancer cases National Center for Atmospheric Research, October 7, 2021 An international agreement to protect the ozone layer is expected to prevent 443 million cases of skin cancer and 63 million cataract cases for people born in the United States through the end of this century, according to new research. The research team, by scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), ICF Consulting, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), focused on the far-reaching impacts of a landmark 1987 treaty known as the Montreal Protocol and later amendments that substantially strengthened it. The agreement phased out the use of chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that destroy ozone in the stratosphere. Stratospheric ozone shields the planet from harmful levels of the Sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation, protecting life on Earth. To measure the long-term effects of the Montreal Protocol, the scientists developed a computer modeling approach that enabled them to look to both the past and the future by simulating the treaty's impact on Americans born between 1890 and 2100. The modeling revealed the treaty's effect on stratospheric ozone, the associated reductions in ultraviolet radiation, and the resulting health benefits. In addition to the number of skin cancer and cataract cases that were avoided, the study also showed that the treaty, as most recently amended, will prevent approximately 2.3 million skin cancer deaths in the U.S. “It's very encouraging,” said NCAR scientist Julia Lee-Taylor, a co-author of the study. “It shows that, given the will, the nations of the world can come together to solve global environmental problems.” The study, funded by the EPA, was published in ACS Earth and Space Chemistry. NCAR is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Mounting concerns over the ozone layer Scientists in the 1970s began highlighting the threat to the ozone layer when they found that CFCs, used as refrigerants and in other applications, release chlorine atoms in the stratosphere that set off chemical reactions that destroy ozone. Concerns mounted the following decade with the discovery of an Antarctic ozone hole. The loss of stratospheric ozone would be catastrophic, as high levels of UV radiation have been linked to certain types of skin cancer, cataracts, and immunological disorders. The ozone layer also protects terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, as well as agriculture. Policy makers responded to the threat with the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, in which nations agreed to curtail the use of certain ozone-destroying substances. Subsequent amendments strengthened the treaty by expanding the list of ozone-destroying substances (such as halons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons, or HCFCs) and accelerating the timeline for phasing out their use. The amendments were based on Input from the scientific community, including a number of NCAR scientists, that were summarized in quadrennial Ozone Assessment reports. To quantify the impacts of the treaty, the research team built a model known as the Atmospheric and Health Effects Framework. This model, which draws on various data sources about ozone, public health, and population demographics, consists of five computational steps. These simulate past and future emissions of ozone-destroying substances, the impacts of those substances on stratospheric ozone, the resulting changes in ground-level UV radiation, the U.S. population's exposure to UV radiation, and the incidence and mortality of health effects resulting from the exposure. The results showed UV radiation levels returning to 1980 levels by the mid-2040s under the amended treaty. In contrast, UV levels would have continued to increase throughout this century if the treaty had not been amended, and they would have soared far higher without any treaty at all. Even with the amendments, the simulations show excess cases of cataracts and various types of skin cancer beginning to occur with the onset of ozone depletion and peaking decades later as the population exposed to the highest UV levels ages. Those born between 1900 and 2040 experience heightened cases of skin cancer and cataracts, with the worst health outcomes affecting those born between about 1950 and 2000. However, the health impacts would have been far more severe without the treaty, with cases of skin cancer and cataracts rising at an increasingly rapid rate through the century. “We peeled away from disaster,” Lee-Taylor said. “What is eye popping is what would have happened by the end of this century if not for the Montreal Protocol. By 2080, the amount of UV has tripled. After that, our calculations for the health impacts start to break down because we're getting so far into conditions that have never been seen before.” The research team also found that more than half the treaty's health benefits could be traced to the later amendments rather than the original 1987 Montreal Protocol. Overall, the treaty prevented more than 99% of potential health impacts that would have otherwise occurred from ozone destruction. This showed the importance of the treaty's flexibility in adjusting to evolving scientific knowledge, the authors said. The researchers focused on the U.S. because of ready access to health data and population projections. Lee-Taylor said that the specific health outcomes in other countries may vary, but the overall trends would be similar. “The treaty had broad global benefits,” she said. What is Boron? The trace mineral boron provides profound anti-cancer effects, in addition to maintaining stronger bones. Life Extension, September 2021 Boron is a trace mineral found in the earth's crust and in water. Its importance in human health has been underestimated. Boron has been shown to have actions against specific types of malignancies, such as: Cervical cancer: The country Turkey has an extremely low incidence of cervical cancer, and scientists partially attribute this to its boron-rich soil.1 When comparing women who live in boron-rich regions versus boron-poor regions of Turkey, not a single woman living in the boron-rich regions had any indication of cervical cancer.2(The mean dietary intake of boron for women in this group was 8.41 mg/day.) Boron interferes with the life cycle of the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is a contributing factor in approximately 95% of all cervical cancers.1 Considering that HPV viruses are increasingly implicated in head and neck cancers,3,4 supplementation with this ultra-low-cost mineral could have significant benefits in protecting against this malignancy that is increasing in prevalence. Lung cancer: A study conducted at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center between 1995 and 2005 found that increased boron intake was associated with a lower risk of lung cancer in postmenopausal women who were taking hormone replacement therapy. Prostate cancer: Studies point to boron's ability to inhibit the growth and spread of prostate cancer cells. In one study, when mice were exposed to boric acid, their tumors shrank by as much as 38%.6 One analysis found that increased dietary boron intake was associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer.7 Several human and animal studies have confirmed the important connection between boron and bone health. Boron prevents calcium loss,8 while also alleviating the bone problems associated with magnesium and vitamin D deficiency.9 All of these nutrients help maintain bone density. A study in female rats revealed the harmful effects a deficiency in boron has on bones, including:10 Decreased bone volume fraction, a measure of bone strength, Decreased thickness of the bone's spongy inner layer, and Decreased maximum force needed to break the femur. And in a study of post-menopausal women, supplementation with3 mg of boron per day prevented calcium loss and bone demineralization by reducing urinary excretion of both calcium and magnesium.8 In addition to its bone and anti-cancer benefits, there are nine additional reasons boron is an important trace mineral vital for health and longevity. It has been shown to:1 Greatly improve wound healing, Beneficially impact the body's use of estrogen, testosterone, and vitamin D, Boost magnesium absorption, Reduce levels of inflammatory biomarkers, such as high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), Raise levels of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase, Protect against pesticide-induced oxidative stress and heavy-metal toxicity, Improve the brain's electrical activity, which may explain its benefits for cognitive performance, and short-term memory in the elderly, Influence the formation and activity of key biomolecules, such as S-adenosyl methionine (SAM-e) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), and Potentially help ameliorate the adverse effects of traditional chemotherapeutic agents. Because the amount of boron varies in the soil, based on geographical location, obtaining enough boron through diet alone can be difficult. Supplementing with low-cost boron is an effective way to maintain adequate levels of this overlooked micronutrient.
