Can Expedia's CEO, Peter Kern, execute a strategy in a competitive environment? Also, Oppenheimer has an outperform rating for the Booking (BKNG) stock. "Will Airbnb (ABNB) have enough supply to fulfill the demand? The app changes are trying to mitigate this," Kelly adds.

Simple Solutions Safe, Effective Way to Block Out Pests — Here's an effective way to seal up holes around your home to ensure no pests crawl in. First, stuff some stainless steel wool into the holes. Then, spray in some expanding foam sealant. Instead of using regular expanding foam sealant, use pest-blocking foam that's specially made to deter rodents and other critters. The foam contains capsaicin, which is the active compound that makes hot peppers spicy. Now, if a pest manages to chew through the foam, it'll hit the steel wool, which will act as an extra barrier. Tip for Cleaning Shower Walls and Doors — Whether they are made of porcelain, acrylic, ceramic tile or glass, shower walls and doors are notoriously difficult to keep clean. But here's how to effectively clean any shower: Fill a soap-dispensing dish scrubber with half grease-cutting dish detergent and half white vinegar. Then, simply scrub the surface to remove soap scum, caked-on dirt and water spots. And, we recently heard from a listener that suggested using a glass-cooktop cleanser to clean glass shower doors.

Check it out below: Frank Rolfe 00:00 I fully understand why as a homeowner, you know, it's a basic fact of life. The average American has a horrible stigma against mobile home parks around the residence. And nobody wants a park to go up near where they live, or even a business they are. If you simply go to Zillow and look at the single-family home price next to a park, it's about half of what it is a block away. Same home, right? Intro 00:21 Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. Sam Wilson 00:33 Frank Rolfe has been an investor in mobile home parks for almost 30 years and has owned and operated hundreds of mobile home parks during that time. He is currently ranked with his partner Dave Reynolds as the fifth largest mobile home park owner in the United States. Frank, welcome to the show. Frank Rolfe 00:48 Hey, thanks for having me. Sam Wilson 00:49 Pleasure is mine. Three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show: in 90 seconds or less, where did you start? Where are you now? How did you get there? Frank Rolfe 00:55 Where did I start? I started off straight out of Stanford trying to do a business school application and back then you would start a business to have a good application. That's how I started my billboard company. So that was my early origins of being an entrepreneur. Where am I now? Well, I'm now I'm fifth-largest owner, with my partner, Dave Reynolds of mobile home parks in the United States. So you know, we've done a lot of scaling over the last 40 years of being in business for myself. Sam Wilson 01:24 Yeah, that's absolutely fantastic. And the last question is, maybe we'll spend the rest of this episode talking about it. How did you get there? Frank Rolfe 01:31 Basically, how I got there was working like an absolute maniac for most of the time. Obviously, having a good strategy, some businesses, you can expand and others you cannot. And then finally, just being outright lucky, because there's plenty of guys with more ability than I've got, who just were not in the right place at the right time. Sam Wilson 01:50 Yeah, it's funny, I was talking, I was having dinner with some guys the other day, big finance guys. And somebody brought up that idea that some of it's just luck. It's just you beat in the right place at the right time. They're like, man, there's more truth to that than you realize that it's just you're desperate the right place the right time, and it worked out. So that's really interesting. The mobile home park and the RV park space has really changed here, I'd say in the last 10 to 15 years, it's gained a lot of attraction, a lot of attention from not just individual investors, but also, as you will know, from institutional investors, what have been the changes most dramatic and noticeable to you, and how has it impacted your business? Frank Rolfe 02:31 Well, the biggest change, of course, has been financing, because when I got in at 25 years ago, in the mid-90s, you could not get back that. So every deal you tried to do the number one hurdle you had was getting financing. Banks hated that. Nobody liked it. And when normally you would end up with seller finance, you try to cobble together something with seller financing. And the sellers were amenable because they knew there was no bank debt. That's the one big shift today deals rarely go on bankable right back in the 90s. Everything was on bankable. So that's when Biggie the other one has been just the appetite for affordable housing. You know, we've said over the last nine quarters, each quarter, we broke the record of the prior quarter as far as sales. And what's going on is just the nation's housing industry has actually gotten nuts on pricing. And so we're producing houses at a price range of you know, in the 300,000s. And so there's so many people who cannot get into the housing market. It's insane. And while with our industry, you don't own both home and land, you do at least own home, and you have some land, unlike apartments. So we're kind of this crossover product between apartments, which don't give you that single-family home lifestyle at all. We're kind of like a step between that and actual normal, single-family. Sam Wilson 03:44 What, so yeah, the bankability of things has changed. You know, the interest in the space too. I mean, cap rates in mobile home park, as far as I understand, I don't own any mobile home parks. From an outsider's view. It just looks like they just keep compressing. How are people finding value right now? Frank Rolfe 04:00 Well, they're not really compressing, what they're doing is they're going down, but people are still having to buy a spread between the interest rate and the cap rate. Thanks for not nuts in our industry and office buildings, retail centers back in the day. People were doing crazy financing, right? Just 110%, LTV 1% interest. People have never on the lending side been that nutty. So you know, we have to get loans and to have loans, we have to have a 1.2x coverage ratio to the mortgage, a lot of bank stress test our mortgages, they'll say what happens if you lost 10% of your revenue? So what you're saying is interest rates are historically very low. Even today. They're at roughly 4% t many mobile home park deals. When I got into business they were at seven right so you know, it's not like in our industry that the cap rates are unsustainably whacked out, but the big difference has been that interest rates are low. Another factor is you know, in our industry, the big narrative is that our lot rents are crazy, stupid low. which when you even say that I get nothing but hate mail, but it's just a fact. And you know, our national mobile home park lot rent is 280 a month average apartments, I think it's 1600 a month, right? So our pricing is stupid. And institutional buyers are buying the stuff up, they're raising the rents up significantly because they're stupid. And because the rates cannot remain, I mean, most of these parks today at the current rates, you're better off just bulldozing them, there's a million uses for the land better than a mobile home park. So as institutional guys go in and drive the rents up, the banks and the appraisers have taken note how easy it would appear to be 100% occupied at 280 rent and still be 100% occupied at a 580 rent. So they're starting to factor in perhaps the first or second read increase into their appraised value. So that's the other phenomenon you're seeing. Because last time, when we buy a park, we're not even looking at mom and pops cap rate, because mom and pop is running that business so poorly. It's a joke, what the banks and the appraisers and sophisticated buyers are doing is looking at the raw material and what they can make out of it. Sam Wilson 05:59 That's a really clear explanation. I think that makes a lot of sense, you know, that I hadn't really considered as How are you guys are seeing it through the bank, through the appraisers' eyes, versus, you know, maybe what mom and pop are putting together on it. Are you guys buying actively right now? Frank Rolfe 06:14 Yes. We're always buying. We have periods in which we buy more than others. But we've never had a period in which we were not buying. Sam Wilson 06:21 What does opportunity look like for you right now? Frank Rolfe 06:24 Well, our tastes have changed significantly over the years, right? Both Dave and I, when we started out, we didn't start out together. We were actually competitors. In the old days, our deals were very, very rough and tumble what we'd call heavy-lift turnarounds. So I was buying parks that were often half-empty, totally screwed up, water leaks running down the streets, stuff like that. So as Dave. Today, because of our size, we're trying to do add on to our portfolio, what we call portfolio builders, which are nicer properties that help the overall value. But at the same time, we still do heavy lift turnarounds. Now the one style we're not as in tune with today, as you were before, are ones in which you have to do massive lot filling by bringing in homes. And that's because home prices have gone up nearly doubled during COVID. So while it was fun to fill lots and 30,000 homes, not as much fun at 60,000 a home. Sam Wilson 07:13 Well, not only that, but I've also heard that finding homes is difficult. Frank Rolfe 07:17 It's very, very hard right now, I don't think you'll ever go back to the old ways, to be honest with you. What happened was that, you know, manufacturing, it was 400,000 units back in the late 90s. Today, it's been about 100,000 units for, I don't know, the last 15 years. Nobody wants to step out and increase production. They easily could because the plants are only running one shift, and they could run three. So they typically produce seven floors a day, the average plant could produce 21 floors a day. But no one wants to take the gamble. Because half of all the mobile homes sold roughly it's estimated are park owners who are buying the homes to bring into their own parks. Right? And then the question is, how much longer will that go on before people get full? It's not like eating out where you might you have to eat out, you know, you eat daily, so maybe you'll eat out, you know, in perpetually a certain number of times a week. In our industry, once you fill a lot. That's it, it's over. So people just don't want to stick their neck out. Sam Wilson 08:11 No, and I completely get that. That's very interesting. You would think, though, that there's still some old supply going offline at some point. I mean, obviously, there's gonna be some demand. But you're saying that there's going to be kind of a point where they've hit the wall and they can no longer keep up with runnings, three shifts a day. Frank Rolfe 08:25 Yeah, well, right. Here's the problem, see, that the average American cannot buy a mobile home. If he walks right now into a mobile home dealership, you will find you have to have better credit and had worse or terms to buy a mobile home than the stick-built. Because the government stands behind and promotes the stick build industry. So they allow people to do these very, very low downpayment, all these different programs for first-time buyers and veterans and all this stuff. None of that exists in our space. So in our industry, you're looking at a high-interest rate a much larger percent down than single-family. And so you can't do it. And the only reason that homes get bought today, half of all home production is because the park owners backstop those loans, right. So if I bring in, you know, a $50,000 home, I don't cosign the note, but I guarantee the lender, if the person is foreclosed on, I won't charge lot rent, and I will go ahead and rehab the home at my own cost, and I will sell it at my own cost. And that's the only reason they will do it. And until the government wants to stand behind the industry and support it, which they've elected never to do, that will never change. If the government wanted to do that, which they easily could then you could see greater sales. Sam Wilson 09:35 Right, that opens another can of worms, you probably won't go down that road. I'm thinking more along the lines of building new parks. Why aren't we seeing, I mean, maybe we'll ask that question differently. What is the challenge, outside of maybe the political challenge of building new parks, why don't we see other new parks coming online? Frank Rolfe 09:52 Well, you never will. Okay. I mean, I've been in the business 25 years and I don't think in any given year you've seen more than 10 new parks ever build and about 100 torn down. So we've been depleting continuously. Here's the problem, and you can't blame the cities for it. I fully understand why as a homeowner, you know, it's a basic fact of life, the average American has a horrible stigma against mobile home parks around the residence. And nobody wants a park to go up near where they live, or even a business they own. If you simply go to Zillow and look at the single-family home price next to a park, it's about half of what it is a block away, same home, right? So the citizens go in an uproar if you try and build a new mobile home park, and of course, all their elected representatives on the city council, they're not wanting to get all the citizens to vote them all out over some stupid mobile home park. So they just will not grant the zoning, they haven't granted zoning in the United States from mobile home park in any significant amount since 1970. So it's been half a century now. And it's never going to change because it's a basic fundamental truth that you'd have to change the entire attitude of Americans towards trailer parks before you could achieve that. And that is never going to happen. No one is ever going to spend $100 billion in public relations money to achieve that. And that's why you won't see it. But even then, if you wanted to build one today, what you would have to do is you'd have to go way out in the countryside where there are no people to complain, where there are no zoning laws, and then you have no municipal water, no municipal, sewer, and no customers. So what's the purpose of building that? So that's the problem. Sam Wilson 11:25 Yeah, absolutely. Are there any other headwinds that come to mind? I mean, in its own right depleting supply is good for you, as a park owner, that the value of the park goes up. It's bad for the end-user in the sense that we are once again losing more affordable housing, and not replacing it or building new. So that's bad for the end-user. Other headwinds in the mobile home park space that you can think of? Frank Rolfe 11:50 Well, you know, what killed the mobile home parks before back in their heyday, which was in the 50s and 60s. What killed it was mass prosperity when people off suddenly got rich, and they all moved out, right? So you had that period in America, which is hard to even remember back that far, but I was alive during that period. When America was doing really well. And every year, people were making more money. And as people became more affluent, they were buying homes and subdivisions. And everything was great. When you were born, if you were ever back in the 60s, the atmosphere in America was very, very much different. We were really rolling at that time. And so the question is to defeat affordable housing, if you wanted to destroy all mobile, home parks, it's simple. Just bring back mass prosperity. And then no one needs mobile, home parks, they just all go buy custom homes wherever they can, build, you know, half a million, million whatever on the golf course, you know. But I don't see that happening. That would be the single biggest event that would kill the industry off. The only other items you have circulating around in some of the blue states, you have rent control. People talk about it frequently. Remember that in the entire United States, only one state has statewide rent control, and that's Oregon. So you know, the credit score is 49 no one yes, you've got four or five other states that allow it on a city by city basis. But you know, it's not a red state phenomenon. But if you have a mobile home park in a blue state, they seem to threaten that every year. They never pass it because they have no desire to ever pass it. Because the folks that run the government are all being subsidized by a whole lot of folks who do a lot of real estate ownership and development. So they're not really going to say, hey, I'll give you my big political contribution, despite the fact you screwed me over with rent control. I don't see that really happening. So no, you know, I don't really see any big headwinds to the industry. But then again, you know, America is so screwed up at this point. Every day is a new headwind. So who knows? Who knows where we'll be by the end of the day. Sam Wilson 13:44 Right. Well said, Tell me about the RV parks because you guys are also well-known RV park owners. I know you kind of lump the two together for our listeners, maybe can you tell us why you lump them together? And then is there a difference? Frank Rolfe 13:59 Yeah, sure. Well, you have to lump them together, because remember that they were all the same family up through the 1960s. So it was all called the trailer industry. You had trailer park, and you had a travel trailer? Yeah. And it was all trailer right. And what happened was a trailer manufacturer called Selby had a customer who wanted an even fancier, more expensive travel trailer. And they called up the state of Ohio and they said, Is there any way I could build this guy, an even bigger travel trailer? And the state said, Yeah, you know what, we'll let you go up to additional feet and width, but he can't pull it with his car, they'll have to pull it with a commercial vehicle. And that was the start of the industry splitting. Because what happened was people who wanted to not move their travel trailer frequently but wanted to have something bigger that became the mobile home whereas the traditional RV, person came to travel with shelter. The biggest difference in the industry be honest with you is the amazing job the RV industry has done with public relations, contrasted to the terrible job of mobile home park the industry has. So the Go RVing campaign is considered one of the most successful marketing campaigns in American history. The average American scores RV is very, very high in status and in satisfaction. So it's such a night and day difference. It's like you have two brothers one goes off to win the Heisman Trophy, be elected president and the other brother ends up you know, dropping out of junior college and becomes a sanitary engineer, even though they were the same industry at one time. So when you deal with RV, it's a luxury product, it's more of a classy customer. And it is something that everyone loves, right? Just as everyone hates trailer park, mobile home parks, they love RV parks. So it's a different kind of business. Now, the main problem you have is that RV is in fact a business. Whereas mobile home parks is very, very static. People never move around, they sit there, an average tendency is 14 years. They pay rent, you fix it when the utility pipes break. But an RV is like going into a restaurant, right? It's much more active. So you have to have customer service. And if you don't, they'll just go down the street to somebody who does. So that's the key difference. There's a risk profile difference between the two. A lot of lenders do offset that. They'll set the cap rate two points higher on RV than mobile home park because they want that extra comfort. And if you're lousy operator, even though you screw up, you can still cover the mortgage. Whereas mobile home park, you know, our managers or their worst manager ever, we probably won't lose any customers will probably have property condition issues, maybe a couple of collections problems. But an RV park with a bad manager can just wipe your RV park out. Sam Wilson 16:38 Right? Absolutely. We've seen some incredible tailwinds in the RV space here just with deliveries in 2020, 2021. And then, you know, 2022, projected deliveries are just through the roof. Where do you see, and I think there's a unique thing that I've seen in the RV park industry is that people or cities are amenable to RV park development. So where do you see that going? Does this just peter out when people get tired of the pandemic and finally try to put that behind us? Or do we actually had, does that have runway? Frank Rolfe 17:08 Well, you know, for a long time people thought RVs were not going to be a long-term thing because the majority of RV owners were baby boomers, my generation. And what they thought was going to spur it on the greatness would be a burst as you have the, you know, there's 10,000 boomers retiring today. I mean, I'm 61. So next year would technically be my where I would retire if I was at a normal job.So but what came out of nowhere that they did not anticipate was the millennials. Millennials are now as bigger bigger buyer of RVs than the Boomers were right. And that was a, I think you have to tie that to the phenomenal success of the Go RVing campaign. They were doing like, you know, all those Monster Energy extreme events, they were marketing it those way back then they had real foresight, whoever was running that marketing, they knew what they were doing. They didn't just focus on boomers, they could have just only promoted programs that appeal to boomers, right, like the Golden Girls or you know, golf tournaments. But no, they went after deliberately went after millennials and all of their most edgy millennial stuff. And as a result, they score very highly with them. And they are now half or more of all RV sales, right? So you have all these young people with RVs now and so that's what's given the industry a whole new life, because I didn't see that one coming, nor did anyone that was gift from the Gods. And then of course, the other part was COVID. I mean, let's be honest, COVID is one of the best things that ever happened to the RV industry, right? What happened was people now want to be outdoors. Some people have never been outdoors before. They never, they want to go somewhere without a mask. People said, Oh, well, you can walk around without a mask. They're like, Oh, holy smokes, man. I've never been outdoors before, what the heck, I like that. And also people now just don't like being around other people's nastiness. They don't want to go to hotels and stuff because they don't know who slept in the bed or who coughed on the remote. And so when they are in an RV, they feel like they have that safety from germs and strangers and all that. So I don't really see that going away. You know, the one part of the industry that someone will have to come to a conclusion with at some point is that, you know, a lot of people prefer retiring and living in RVs over mobile homes because of that stigma issue, which you'll never solve. So and I myself know, I know a college professor who recently sold his house, like a half a million-dollar house, and bought an RV. Okay, it's a single guy. And he just decided to sell everything and retire and bank the whole thing and just live in his RV. He would have never lived in a mobile home in a million years. He could never, culturally stigma, survive that but he can. The problem is a lot of cities, the RVs are not allowed to remain more than a certain number of days. Right? So those people end up in this nomadic existence. So what you need is kind of a hybrid, you need an RV park that you can retire in and live permanently. And that's going to be the real challenge. When cities grant these RV permits. Traditionally, they won't allow anyone to be there more than a certain number of days. And they do that live really because they are afraid if they do you know, there's an underworld RV of these kinds of nomadic freaky people who grew up around the river and they don't want them, right? Well, you don't want the guy that was living under the bridge down by the river, right? That's not your goal. So that's the real missing piece right now. And then the same goes with tiny homes, right? tiny homes can't go on traditional mobile home blocks, they don't have the HUD seal. So what happens is, you know, you see them on TV, but there's nowhere to put them right. And again, so that's the missing piece. And so I think at some point in the movie, maybe in the next five years, 10 years, 20 years, people will figure all this out, and maybe cities will allow what would be more of an upscale retirement kind of community that allows for tiny homes and things do not have HUD seal and yet don't have to move frequently. I think that's the only missing piece the industry has. Sam Wilson 20:51 Yeah, that's really interesting. I had not even considered that side of the equation before. But yeah, that is really interesting. I mean, a lot of what we're seeing in the RV park space is in the long term tenant, though, when you get outside of those city regulations, of course, I mean, you have people that park their RV and leave them there for 12 months and come in every other weekend, have a good time. Really, really intriguing. Frank, thank you for taking the time to come on today and talk about mobile home parks and RV parks, certainly a blast. I've enjoyed it, learned a ton about both sides of the business. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you and what you guys are doing, what is the best way to do that?

Long time listeners might remember the words split property taxes. The idea being - the city of Detroit's tax burden is only second only to New York City. But, I don't know if you've looked around. We don't have the household incomes, the commerce, or the number of people to support that. We were closer to that many decades ago. But no more. So the idea is to change the code to make it so land speculators and others would get punished, and those who are taking care of and improving their land get rewarded. Now that the city of Detroit has a better handle of its finances and we're not immediately after bankruptcy, maybe it's time for the city leaders to look to the future. What could we do different to truly become more resident-friendly and more competitive for businesses of all sizes? What if we could change the system so there were fewer foreclosures and more people stay in their homes? When we talked about this last, it was more theoretical. Now, there's a new report by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and commissioned by some local big hitters in Invest Detroit and the Kresge Foundation. That, if you're paying attention, is major local interest in the topic. Nick Allen, an author of the report, joins us to discuss it.

Ari's Sleep Hacks Sleep tech Oura ring sleep tracker (or similar) helps you to test how your body reacts to the recommendations listed below. Sleep timing & environment Set a “go-to-sleep” time instead of wake-up time. I go to sleep between 10pm-11pm. Going to sleep before 10pm always gives better quality sleep (and more REM sleep). Cool environment 65 degrees Blackout curtains Comfortable mattress (avoid hot memory foam mattresses), small pillow, down blanket Earplugs — I have worn earplugs on for the last 6 years and they significantly improve sleep quality Sleep supplement (30 minutes prior to sleep) L-theanine 200mg — Several studies suggest that L-theanine could help people relax before bedtime, get to sleep more easily, and sleep more deeply. These benefits may result from the specific effects that amino acid has on brain chemicals that play a role in sleep. Magnesium L-Threonate 1,000mg — Magnesium plays a particularly important role as it is needed to form serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline. Magnesium also helps form melatonin as serotonin gets converted to melatonin which is needed for sleep. Apigenin 50mg — Apigenin binds to specific receptors in your brain that may decrease anxiety and initiate sleep. Food/Drink Eat dinner (or other food) before 7pm No alcohol after 7pm No caffeine after 2pm Chamomile tea 8pm Physical Hot shower right before going to bed No physical training after 7pm Evening stretching (15minutes) and Theragun massage (10 minutes) on days with intense exercise Lower the light level and avoid screens (blue light) after 8pm 30 minutes of sunlight in the morning (within 1 hour of waking up) to set your circadian rhythm Mental Wind-down rituals before sleep (journaling, turning on night lights, and putting on pajamas). Yoga Nidra breathing exercise in bed to help you fall asleep (go through your body and relax from toes to head). Read more here. Deep breathing in bed (physiological sigh). Breathe deeply through the nose and once lungs feel full do one quick inhale. Repeat 4-6 times and you are relaxed and ready to fall asleep.

Today we will start with the lower chakras. We will discuss the root, sacral, and solar chakras. Root is the base chakra. This is where you feel grounded. It is associated with the color red. This can help you tune into the root chakra. Sacral is in the lower abdomen. When this is open you are feeling good about yourself. This is also associated with sexuality. This is associated with the color orange. The solar chakra is in the upper abdomen. This is associated with the color yellow. Both abdominal chakras work together. Imagine your gut feeling. This is the abdominal chakras. Some way to stimulate the lower chakras other than colors is deep breathing. Good Risings is a mindset. Adrianne Nina for a daily dose of Motivation.

Lower risk of dementia found among people with higher carotenoid levels National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Aging, May 6 2022. An article appearing on in Neurology® reported an association between higher levels of several carotenoids and a lower risk of developing Alzheimer disease and other dementias during a 16 to 17-year average period. Carotenoids are a family of yellow to red plant pigments, including beta-carotene, which have an antioxidant effect. Participants whose levels of the carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin and beta-cryptoxanthin were highest were likelier to develop dementia later in life than individuals with lower levels. Among those aged 65 and older upon enrollment, each approximate 15.4 micromole per liter increase in lutein and zeaxanthin was associated with a 7% decrease in dementia risk during follow-up. For beta-cryptoxanthin, each 8.6 micromole per liter increase was associated with a 14% reduction among those older than 45 at the beginning of the study. “Further studies are needed to test whether adding these antioxidants can help protect the brain from dementia,” Dr Beydoun concluded. A Mediterranean-style diet decreases the levels of the inflammatory marker called C-reactive protein University of Bologna (Italy), May 3, 2022 Sticking to a Mediterranean style diet decreases the levels of the inflammatory marker called C-reative protein, linked to ageing, finds the EU funded project NU-AGE. Another positive effect of this diet was that the rate of bone loss in people with osteoporosis was reduced. Other parameters such as insulin sensitivity, cardiovascular health, digestive health and quality of life are yet to be analysed. This is the first project that goes in such depths into the effects of the Mediterranean diet on health of elderly population. We are using the most powerful and advanced techniques including metabolomics, transcriptomics, genomics and the analysis of the gut microbiota to understand what effect, the Mediterranean style diet has on the population of over 65 years old" said prof. Claudio Franceschi, project coordinator from the University of Bologna, Italy. The project was conducted in five European countries: France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and the UK and involved 1142 participants. There are differences between men and women as well as among participants coming from the different countries. Volunteers from five countries differed in genetics, body composition, compliance to the study, response to diet, blood measurements, cytomegalovirus positivity and inflammatory parameters. Resveratrol's blood pressure benefits may pass from mother to child University of Alberta and University of Adelaide, May 4, 2022 Hereditary hypertension may not pass the generations if the mother is given resveratrol supplements during pregnancy, suggests a new study with lab rats. Offspring of spontaneously hypertensive rats were found to be protected from elevated blood pressure once they reached adulthood if their mothers had received resveratrol supplementation during pregnancy. “Maternal perinatal resveratrol supplementation prevented the onset of hypertension in adult offspring and nitric oxide synthase inhibition normalized these blood pressure differences, suggesting improved nitric oxide bioavailability underlies the hemodynamic alterations,” wrote the researchers in the journal Hypertension . The new study supplemented the diets of spontaneously hypertensive female rats with 0 or 4 g/kg diet of resveratrol from gestational day 0.5 until postnatal day 21. The offspring of these rats were then followed to adulthood. Results showed that the adult offspring had significantly lower blood pressure than their mothers. Additional tests indicated that the potential blood pressure lowering activity observed in the resveratrol-fed animals was not linked to nitric oxide Krill oil may be beneficial to muscle function and size in healthy people over the age of 65 University of Glasgow (Scotland), May 6, 2022 The study—led by the University of Glasgow's Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences (ICAMS) and published in Clinical Nutrition—found that krill oil supplementation of four grams per day could have beneficial effects on skeletal muscle function and size in this age group. The research found that healthy adult participants who had received daily krill oil supplementation for six months showed statistically and clinically significant increases in muscle function and size. Krill oil contains high concentrations of the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, which previous scientific studies have shown are important nutrients for the body as it ages. The randomized, double blind, controlled trial included 102 men and women all above 65 years of age. The participants were relatively inactive to engaging in less than one hour of self-reported exercise each week on entry to the study. The study found that participants receiving daily krill oil supplements showed the following improvements (from baseline) at the end of the study: Increase in thigh muscle strength (9.3%), grip strength (10.9%) and thigh muscle thickness (3.5%), relative to control group. Increase in red blood cell fatty acid profile for EPA 214%, DHA 36% and the omega-3 index 61%, relative to control group. Increased M-Wave of 17% (relative to the control group), which shows the excitability of muscle membranes. New research shows cannabis flower is effective for treating fatigue University of New Mexico, May 6, 2022 Researchers at The University of New Mexico have used a mobile software app to measure the effects of consuming different types of common and commercially available cannabis flower products on fatigue levels in real-time. As part of the study, researchers showed that over 91 percent of people in the study sample that used cannabis flower to treat fatigue reported symptom improvement. In their recent study, titled "The Effects of Consuming Cannabis Flower for Treatment of Fatigue," published in the journal Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids, the UNM researchers showed that using cannabis results in immediate improvement for feelings of fatigue in the majority of users. This was the first large-scale study to show that on average, people are likely to experience a 3.5 point improvement of feelings of fatigue on a 0-10 scale after combusting cannabis flower products The study was based on data from 3,922 cannabis self-administration sessions recorded by 1,224 people. "One of the most surprising outcomes of this study is that cannabis, in general, yielded improvements in symptoms of fatigue, rather than just a subset of products, such as those with higher THC or CBD levels or products characterized as sativa rather than indica," said co-author and Associate Professor Sarah Stith. "We're excited to see real-world data and studies support the use of cannabinoids for helping individuals manage their fatigue and energy levels," says Tyler Dautrich. "This obviously has implications for patients experiencing fatigue as a symptom of their medical condition, but we also feel this can lead to healthier options to the current energy drink and supplement market." Study: Coconut oil contains molecules found to be effective against coronavirus Ateneo de Manila University (Philippines), May 2, 2022 New research out of the Philippines has uncovered yet another potentially viable candidate for treating and preventing the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) without the need for pharmaceuticals or vaccines, and it is lovingly known to many of our readers as coconut oil. Dr. Fabian M. Dayrit, PhD, from Ateneo de Manila University, along with the help of Dr. Mary T. Newport, MD, from Spring Hill Neonatology in Florida, looked at the known antiviral benefits of coconut oil to see if they may also apply to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). Lauric acid (C12), along with its derivative monolaurin, has been known for many years to possess natural antiviral activity. A medium-chain fatty acid that comprises about 50 percent of coconut oil's makeup, lauric acid is widely recognized as a “super” nutrient, as is monolaurin, which is produced by the body's own enzymes upon ingestion of coconut oil. These nutrients work in tandem to disintegrate the “envelopes” that surround viruses, and this includes the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). These two nutrients can also inhibit late-stage maturation in the replicative cycle of viruses, as well as prevent the binding of viral proteins to the host cell membrane. Another antiviral compound found in coconut oil that also plays a protective role is capric acid (C10), along with its derivative monocaprin. Though it only makes up about seven percent of coconut oil, capric acid has shown effectiveness against HIV-1, which is important because evidence has emerged to suggest that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) may contain HIV DNA.

The government is extending the amount of time it will subsidise apprenticeships - but it's cutting the rate of the subsidy. A $230 million investment from this year's Budget will support 38,000 apprentices. The scheme was set up in 2020 to support businesses to hire and retain apprentices during the pandemic. It was set to expire in August, but has now been extended until the end of next year. That means 24,000 new apprentices and 14,000 existing apprentices can get the support.

Levels Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Casey Means, chatted with our advisor, Dr. David Perlmutter on the discovery of how the elevation of uric acid in the body is a causative mechanism in the development of metabolic diseases, and one of the key links between obesity, diabetes, heart disease, neurologic diseases like dementia, ADHD, fatty liver disease, and more. They also covered: The several mechanisms of how uric acid causes cellular dysfunction and insulin resistance, including oxidative stress, inflammation, and even preventing insulin from getting out of the blood stream effectively. The evolutionary reasons why the metabolic dysfunction and weight gain caused by uric acid would have benefitted us historically in terms of low access to food and water, by letting us more easily pack on weight and raise blood pressure. And how we now live in an evolutionary-environmental mismatch where this survival mechanism is now hurting us in the face of caloric abundance. The different dietary and environmental factors that generate uric acid, including fructose, purine rich foods and umami foods, dehydration, alcohol, and more. The optimal levels for uric acid. How uric acid impairs our hunger signals, drives us to eat, and even promotes risk taking behavior. We talked about how to reverse high uric acid levels as a way to unlock optimal health.

[00:50] Why Dr. Perlmutter Dedicated His Life To The Gut, The Brain, and Uric Acid Dr. Perlmutter wanted to work to create programs that would help patients prevent the very diseases that they were trying to treat. Lifestyle choices really play a central role as we architect our brain's future. So, Dr. Perlmutter began to implement lifestyle medicine into his practice. Eventually, Dr. Perlmutter wrote Grain Brain to help people understand that lifestyle choices significantly impact our brain's destiny. Get Grain Brain here: https://www.amazon.com/Grain-Brain-Surprising-Sugar-Your-Killers/dp/0316485136/benazadi-20 After Grain Brain, Dr. Perlmutter started to study how the gut influences the brain's destiny. Lately, Dr. Perlmutter has been studying how uric acid disturbs our metabolism. [15:00] Why Dr. Perlmutter Decided To Write A Book All About Uric Acid Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid―The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar, and Achieving Extraordinary Health: https://www.amazon.com/Drop-Acid-Surprising-Controlling-Extraordinary/dp/0316315397/benazadi-20 The average rate of uric acid in America right now is six. People with high uric acid levels have an increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's. There's a relationship between these diseases and uric acid. Uric acid directly leads to insulin resistance. [19:30] Your Body Is Retaining Uric Acid As A Survival Mechanism We tend to retain uric acid. Our uric acid levels can be higher as a survival mechanism, thanks to our primate ancestors. We don't hibernate for six months. Therefore, we don't need to be storing this fat for the winter that never comes. 88% of American adults are metabolically unhealthy. Getting Covid is associated with a 40 to 60% increased risk of type two diabetes. Individuals with higher uric acid levels have a higher risk of dying from Covid. [25:10] Your Body Can't Handle More Than Five Grams of Fructose At A Time Your body can handle some fructose, about five grams at a time. When your body is presented with high levels of fructose, it overwhelms what the body can do. When fructose is delivered in the context of fiber, it slows the absorption. So, it's better to eat an apple than drink apple juice. Vitamin C aids in uric acid excretion. The most common way to overdo fructose consumption is by drinking fruit juice. A 12-ounce glass of orange juice might have 30 grams of sugar. There's no way the body will be able to deal with that appropriately. [35:30] Tart Cherries As A Remedy For Gout and Lowering Uric Acid Levels Tart cherries have been researched for decades. Originally, tart cherries have been looked upon as a remedy for gout. It has been noted that people who ate cherries would have fewer gout flare-ups. Tart cherries are pretty darn effective in lowering uric acid levels. [36:40] The Health Benefits of Drinking Coffee Drinking coffee is associated with a dramatically lowered risk of Alzheimer's. Coffee is also associated with lower uric acid levels. Plus, coffee reduces inflammation, upregulates antioxidant function, and improves detoxification in the body. Also, coffee helps us grow new brain cells, no matter our age. [41:45] The Relationship Between Animal-Based Protein and The Role of Uric Acid Fiber is so essential for human health. Most of Dr. Perlmutter's food is plant-based. Regarding our uric acid story, certain meats or animal products are worse than others. Organ meats, sardines, anchovies, and scallops can raise your uric acid levels. The most significant issues for uric acid are fructose, purines, and alcohol. [48:20] Should I Follow A Ketogenic Lifestyle If I Have Gout Attacks? The most significant player in gout is fructose. When you research how to fix gout, there will be no talk about removing sugar or fructose from your diet. The human requirement for sugar in our diets is zero grams per day. We subsidize the growth of corn from which high fructose corn syrup comes from. We are supporting the diseases that are sucking up our healthcare resources. Diseases are significant money makers for the healthcare industry. It's time we start thinking about prevention. [52:25] What Role Does Mental-Emotional Stress Play With Uric Acid Levels? When we are experiencing stress, our ability to make rational, forward-thinking decisions is compromised. When your decision-making is compromised, you won't be making good lifestyle choices. Therefore, under stress, you will eat more foods that have sugar. Eventually, you will raise uric acid levels and feed the flame of poor metabolic health. It is time to make better decisions by lowering your stress levels. AND MUCH MORE!

How do you feel about ADHD medication? Are you taking it? Does it help you focus and thrive? Or are you medication-curious, and a little freaked out about it? That's totally okay. Are you anti-medicine? That's alright, too. Most ADHDers who are new to medication have a LOT of questions, like: - How does ADHD medicine feel? - How do you know if your ADHD medication is working? - How do you decide if medication is the right choice? On the Motherhood in ADHD podcast, we're kicking off “Medication May” (and probably a bit of June too!), by giving you the complete low-down on ADHD medication, so you can make the choice that's right for you. In this episode, you'll hear about: - Why I choose to take medicine, and my personal experience with different types of ADHD medication over the past 20 years - Why I stopped taking medication in the past, and how I managed without it - The unnecessary shame and embarrassment many ADHDers feel when seeking ADHD meds (Let's break the stigma, shall we?!) - How to tackle the fears and “what ifs” around taking medication by becoming as informed as possible - How ADHD medication isn't a “magic wand” that solves all your problems – and additional ways to support yourself - The difference between stimulant and non-stimulant ADHD medication (and my experience with both) - Why it's okay to start and stop medication (and how to work with your doctor to do this safely) - Answers to the most frequent questions asked by listeners - And more! Let me be clear: This is not medical advice. I'm not here to tell you what you should or should not do. My goal in sharing my treatment journey is to share with you as much knowledge and confidence as possible, so you can decide if ADHD medicine is an option you'd like to try. Because you are the only one who can decide what is best for you. This material is not intended as medical advice. Please consult your doctor or a trained medical professional to find the treatment plan that best fits your personal situation.
