On today's show Dr Peter Ridd discusses the record high coral cover, a major embarrassment for the climate alarmists. GUEST OVERVIEW: Dr Peter Ridd is a geophysicist with over 100 publications and 35 years' experience working on the Great Barrier Reef and developed a wide range of world-first optical and electronic instruments for measuring environmental conditions near corals and other ecosystems. He was head of Physics at James Cook University for over a decade before being fired, in 2018, for questioning the quality assurance systems used by reef science institutions. Some of the poor-quality work relates to the effect, or lack of effect, of climate change, and agriculture, on the reef. Dr Ridd now works, unpaid, with agricultural organisations, and the Institute of Public Affairs to improve quality assurance systems of “science” used by Australian governments to make environmental laws and regulations.

Removing barriers, preventing people in rural areas from accessing mental health services, will be key to improving wellbeing in the bush. A James Cook University study shows patients are facing higher risks of suicide and mental health issues the further out of town they live. Residents in Queensland and WA are the worst affected. Rural editor Sophie Clarke caught up with lead author Doctor Andrew Amos who is calling for more funding to be funnelled into rectifying the issue.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Teaching writing (and literacy) can sometimes be 'a bit of this and a bit of that'. Sometimes we teach in a compartmentalised way, and there is no connection between lessons​​.We often don't see a transfer of what we are teaching to students using the skills in their own writing.To help us with this, Dr. Brian Cambourne joins the show to talk about teaching writing effectively, building connection in literacy and shares the relevant academic research and evidence.​​Dr. Cambourne, associate professor, is currently a Principal Fellow at the University of Wollongong in NSW. He started his teaching career in NSW in 1956 and spent the next nine years working in a variety of small, mostly one-teacher primary schools before entering academic life. He has since become one of Australian's most eminent researchers of literacy and learning.

In this episode, we're joined by Alexandre C. Siqueira, a postdoctoral fellow at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia, where he works in the lab of Professor David Bellwood. He joined us to talk about his recent BioScience article on reef fish evolution, and how we're learning more about that topic from some recent findings in Mayan temples. The article's abstract follows.During the excavation of Mayan tombs, little did the archaeologists know that the fossils they discovered in the tomb stones would fundamentally alter our understanding of the earliest origins of coral reef fishes. Located just 500 kilometers from the point where an asteroid impact reconfigured the world's biological systems 66 million years ago, we find the earliest origins of three typical reef fish groups. Their presence in Mexico just 3 million years after this impact finally reconciles the conflict between the fossil and phylogenetic evidence for the earliest origins of reef fishes. The incorporation of these fossils into a global reconstruction of fish evolutionary history reveals a new picture of the early biogeography of reef fishes, with strong Atlantic links. From locations associated with biological destruction and societal collapse, we see evidence of the origins of one of the world's most diverse and spectacular marine ecosystems: coral reefs.

Elizabeth (Liz) Spencer is Professor of Law at Charles Darwin University. Born in New Jersey, she's the last of four children. Her father was in the US Navy and met her Australian mother in Brisbane towards the end of World War II. In this respect she's half Australian. After finishing high school Liz went on to do a 'gap' year in France where she had some interesting experiences. She then returned to the US and completed a degree in Environmental Studies and Biology from Trinity College and headed out to the west coast to work in an architectural firm. It was there that she decided architecture was not for her and she returned to New York to work before enrolling to do a Master of Community and Regional Planning from the University of Texas at Austin.  Liz got married and moved to Denver before her husband, who was an engineer in the oil and gas industry, got a transfer to Norway and then The Netherlands. While raising two children Liz decided to study law and she earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Arizona. Then, in a twist of irony, the family moved to Brisbane, her mother's home town. She started her career in academia at Bond University where she earned a Ph.D in Franchising Law. Liz has taught contracts, torts, corporations law, business law, international trade law and franchising law. In addition to Bond University her academic career has also included stints with The Australian Catholic University, James Cook University and now Charles Darwin University.

Hello and welcome to The Progress Theory where we discuss how to implement scientific principles to optimise human performance. In this episode, we have Dr Kenji Doma, Senior Sport and Exercise Science Lecturer at James Cook University. Usually, whenever people think of the interference effect during hybrid training they think about how endurance training inhibits the strength and hypertrophy adaptations from strength training. The research support for strength training enhancing endurance performance is quite clear, but are there examples of how strength training can negatively affect endurance performance? In this episode, Dr Doma and Dr Phil Price discuss the mechanisms which can inhibit endurance performance and adaptation during hybrid training, how we can programme to avoid this, and what the common mistakes people make when hybrid training. But before we get to the show I want to thank our sponsors, who the show would not be possible without. I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to my production partner, KULT Media.  KULT Media has been instrumental in the development & success of the progress theory.  They have created brand guides, comprehensive podcast strategies, enhanced the podcast production, developed custom workflows for me and edited & mixed all of the video, audio and social media content.  Their simple Coach, Create & Collaborate process has saved me 100's hours in podcast production, resolved countless technical issues and consistently help me to improve my podcasting game.  So if you want to establish and engage your audience, or are ready to launch your own podcast head to http://www.kult.media (www.kult.media) to learn more.  Thank you to HMN24 – fuelling human potential and optimising everyday human performance and well-being.  First of all – HMN24 is not a sports supplement company. I've seen sport supplements be used as a method to improve performance in the gym and at a certain sport. However, these supplements, like a pre-workout, are often used on top of a lifestyle which does not provide the foundation needed for optimal performance. There's no point taking pre-workout supplements if your sleep, hydration, and nutrition is an unstructured mess. I'm convinced that a large percentage of injuries are often caused, not because training was poor, but because a poor lifestyle foundation increased the athlete's susceptibility to injury. Sports supplements are often used to plaster the cracks in poor lifestyle habits, which only causes more future problems.  And this is where HMN24 is different. The product range at HMN24 not only helps improve your foundation; it optimises it. The HMN24 products are designed to fit around your circadian rhythms, from the moment you wake up, to key moments in the day when you need optimal focus, to getting the best sleep at night, there's a product to optimise each phase of the day. I can't recommend enough the “live on form' pack, consisting of the products Rise, flow and pre-sleep. Rise is for the morning and is my absolute favourite. It tastes amazing. Rise contains caffeine for increased morning alertness (though not a huge amount of caffeine, which is sooo much better for avoiding gastro-intestinal distress), electrolytes from coconut and watermelon powder to increase hydration after the previous night's sleep, and B-vitamins, to ensure you ready to win the morning. I'm not a fan of long-winded morning routines. I wake up, have my Rise with ice, and get straight to writing, and I've seen such an improvement in getting into deep work. By the time 2pm comes around the effects of caffeine from Rise has worn off, but I don't want to take more caffeine because that's going to interrupt getting to sleep later on. This is where Flow is perfect. It's a caffeine-free nootropic, perfect for improving alertness and concentration during that mid-afternoon slump....

In today's episode we continue our investigative series into the actual science behind the Earth's ever changing climate, and continue to provide clear evidence to counter the bogus mainstream alarmist narrative. Today we will examine another poster child of the alarmist movement, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. Joining us is Dr. Peter Ridd, PhD. Dr. Ridd obtained his doctoral degree in Physics from James Cook University in 1980, and is a former Professor and Head of Physics. Dr. Ridd's focus while at James Cook was coastal oceanography, the effects of sedimentation on coral reefs, instrument development, geophysical sensing of the earth, past and future climates, and atmospheric modelling. He developed a series of specialist instrumentation for measuring various aspects of water quality, with the profits used to fund student scholarships and research projects. Dr. Ridd has published more than 100 scientific papers in international science journals and supervised many successful PhD students. His most recent book is “Reef Heresy: Science, Research and the Great Barrier Reef”. When warming alarmists grossly misled people about the status of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Dr. Ridd spoke up. He wrote an opinion piece in the Jan 2018 issue of the Marine Pollution Bulletin which challenged the prevailing propaganda related to the condition of the Great Barrier Reef. The essay drew attention to what Dr. Ridd argued was a “reproducibility crisis” and also to the validity of specific papers on the topic. As a result, Dr. Ridd's employer, James Cook University, took a number of disciplinary measures against him, and ultimately after a lengthy court battle he was dismissed. Following the conclusion of his legal battle with James Cook University in 2021, Dr Ridd has accepted an invitation to join the Institute of Public Affairs as an Adjunct Fellow, without salary, to lead a newly established Project for Real Science. The Project's aims are to improve science quality assurance, build on the IPA's existing research programs, and to support academics speaking out for integrity in science and research.

How we understand our role as occupational therapy practitioners makes a huge difference in how we show up for our clients. But, unfortunately, some theories of OT practice fail to aid us in practical clinical reasoning that focuses on occupation. Luckily, the theories of OT practice that are emerging are getting closer to capturing the care we aspire to deliver—and provide more useful frameworks to guide our clinical reasoning. Today we will dive into the CORE Approach. The approach is a mechanism for OTs to understand their practice from an inclusive, occupation-centric lens. It encourages OTs to ask reflexive questions related to the “core” areas of OT: capabilities, opportunities, resources and environments After reviewing an article on the CORE Approach, I am excited to explore this approach more fully, with Brock Cook—an OT from Australia, where this approach was born!

Anyone who has been to Thailand knows the old “Ohhh, the temple is closed today, why don't you come with me to this gem store?” Despite warnings in literally every bit of content about traveling to Thailand, thousands still fall prey to this scam every year. But why?? To answer this we are joined by Ding Xu, a PhD candidate in tourism at Australia's James Cook University. Ding's research goes deep into understanding the culture, economy and psychology of the tourism industry as well as the tourists themselves. Putting hundreds of hours of study into the scams that are so prevalent around the world, Ding has a unique insight into not only how and why the scams are put together, but what causes a large number of tourists to part with money - sometimes a lot of money! - based on the advice of a random dude they met in a foreign country.  Ding explains the four features that his research identified in being central to any scam - deception types, interpersonal trust, victim culpability and prevalence - to dissect how and why these scams are so ubiquitous.

The United Nations' declaration of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022-2032) raises a critical issue: Indigenous languages are in an endangered state. The UN's declaration is hoped to spur preservation and promotion of them and curb the tide of extinction. Papua New Guinea holds more Indigenous languages than anywhere else in the world. Current estimates of its living languages are between 830 to over 850, but that number is in steady decline as Papua New Guinea's communities become more mobile and interconnected. Yet, while extinction to local languages remains a severe problem in Papua New Guinea, in 2020, a new language was added to its list – and there's potential for more. Jessica Collins, the Lowy Institute's Research Fellow for the Aus-PNG Network and Pacific Islands Program, talks with four experts about language, diversity, and cultural identity in Papua New Guinea.

They're older than the dinosaurs, they've survived four mass extinctions, and yet today, in the wake of climate change, pollution, and commercial fishing, sharks are endangered. As an apex predator, this steep decline in sharks also has massive ramifications for marine ecosystems and the economy more broadly, and because sharks don't produce offspring at nearly the levels of other fish, it's very difficult to help shark populations get back on track. Today, we explore what challenges face sharks, why sharks are important, and how we can support them moving forward. With special guest Dr. Jodie Rummer: Associate Professor of Marine Biology at James Cook University. The Sweaty Penguin is presented by Peril and Promise: a public media initiative from The WNET Group in New York, reporting on the issues and solutions around climate change.

Welcome back to Part Two of my interview with Joy and Pastor Jason Harris from Cairns, Australia. We continue with their story of abuse at the hands of Larry, Joy's ex husband and Jason's father. This week we talk about Kevin, Joy's oldest son, a pastor who believes his mother's rape was her fault, and that she should repent. Kevin is also a defender of pedophiles like Jack Schapp and believes children are guilty of consenting to being groomed and violated by adults. Joy and Jason both share their journey of healing, what to do if you're in an abusive marriage, and how can pastors help abuse victims instead of contributing to their suffering.

Is there such a thing as consent in marriage? Is there ever a time when you can say no to your spouse? Can someone be raped in a Christian marriage? These are some of the questions we will answer with my two guests from Down Under, Joy Harris, and her son Pastor Jason Harris. Joy is a survivor of years of verbal, emotional, psychological, and sexual abuse at the hands of her now ex husband, Larry. Larry was convicted of raping his wife and was sentenced to serve a brief prison sentence. Jason, along with the rest of his 6 siblings, suffered horrible child abuse growing up as missionary kids. On Part One of this interview, Joy shares with us how she met Larry, when the abuse started, and the church culture that enabled the abuse to take place. We talk about corporal punishment vs physical abuse of a child, what does the bible say about sex in marriage, and what their Pastor did when the abuse was reported. You don't want to miss this powerful story and valuable perspective from Joy and Jason. https://www.facebook.com/jasonharrisaustralia https://twitter.com/tojasonharris.  www.thefiles.com.au  https://jasonharris.com.au/domesticviolence/ Bio: Joy studied elementary education before going on to teach at the primary school level as well as homeschooling for twenty-six years.

Today's guest is Dr Nidhi Krishnan.Over the past many, many months, we have been inundated with news, views, perceptions, misconceptions and conspiracy theories around COVID -19. To be honest, I am just as tired of it as most of you are. Much of what we read is based on hearsay and what the media wants us to know and not being drawn from rigorous research. Let me say first and foremost, I stand for freedom of speech and freedom of choice. However, the unfortunate thing about this misinformation is that it is creating a great divide between friends, families and communities.For this reason, we held an Ask Me Anything event some weeks ago where we invited Dr. Nidhi Krishnan to join us to respond to all your questions. Dr. Nidhi Krishnan is the registrar in the Pediatric Ward at Logan Hospital in Queensland, Australia and an adjunct lecturer at James Cook University. In this AMA, it was my clear intention to seek answers to the more common, & pertinent questions from a healthcare professional with a science background, who has derived her knowledge around COVID 19 from working on the frontline, as well as receiving daily updates from the appropriate official sources.Questions were asked around the very existence of COVID-19 , what it is, how it's spread, the variants, vaccinations, testing protocols, preventative measures we can take, the effectiveness of lockdowns, and the long term health impacts of having had COVID-19 survivor. All the information offered by Dr. Krishnan was explained in a very clear and concise manner that made absolute sense.Based on the overwhelming number of requests to replay this AMA, we have decided to release the replay as an episode, so here it is. This episode is not about changing people's opinions, it is about education and it is our hope that it may help to dispel some of the myths and conspiracy theories that are circulating in our communities creating so much angst and chaos. This is not to be missed information on COVID-19.In this episode01:09 - Introduction05:16 - The aim of the Ask Me Anything event06:31 - Introducing Dr Nidhi Krishnan10:11 - What is Covid-19?12:05 - What are the variants?13:18 - How do we detect the virus?16:53 - Who is at most risk of contracting Covid-19?21:10 - The differences between the vaccines27:10 - Why do we have to have two does of the vaccine?29:30 - Ways to protect ourselves31:17 - How effective are masks?44:21 - The risk V's benefit with vaccination For more go to https://drmarisaleenaismith.com/30Like this episode?
