Budgets are tight at local authorities across the country and this week, Bristol City Council launched a consultation on what it calls its ‘Fair and Affordable Care Policy'. Some residents fear the policy, if implemented, could see them relocated to care homes if that's seen as “best value” to the wider community. We speak to Mark Williams, a Bristol resident and part of the Bristol Reclaiming Independent Living group and Mikey Erhardt who is a campaigner from Disability Rights UK.

It takes time and conscious decisions on a teacher's part to build connections with students. With the pressures of pacing guides and content coverage, teachers can feel uncomfortable dedicating the needed time to connection building with students. Research is clear that many benefits can be gained from committing to building connections.

With special guest: Mark Williams… in conversation with Bill Kable Our guest in today’s program is Mark Williams who has been awarded “Inspirational Father of the Year” at the Pride of Britain awards. This is impressive enough but it also shows how far he has come since the birth of his son Ethan in 2004. Both Mark and his wife Michelle suffered crippling anxiety after the birth and Mark hit rock bottom when he began to experience suicidal thoughts. And yet the reason for the torrent of negative emotions and spiralling depression had less to do with their son than the mental health issues that were confronting them. In hindsight Mark recognises that he had experienced a condition long recognised in mothers, that of post-natal depression. Podcast (mp3)

The Connected Species: How the Evolution of the Human Brain Can Save the World by Mark A. Williams https://amzn.to/46xf4f5 Human beings have succeeded as the most dominant species on earth in large part due to our need to connect and cooperate. It was our ability to socialize and connect that catapulted our species to phenomenal heights of innovation, through collaboration and specialization. This drive has fine-tuned our unconscious perception of faces, facial expressions, body language, and touch. Our primitive drive to connect changes how we perceive the world and the people around us. We see, hear, empathize with, and understand others differently depending on whether they are a member of our in-group or not. This unconscious drive to connect can draw us together, but it also emphasizes the differences between groups. And it is getting worse, as overcrowding, technology, and the media often focus us on our differences. We become more and more divided into groups as a result. Here, Mark Williams shows us how to recapture the drive for connection in a way that will help us look past our differences and reconnect, even with those whom we perceive to be outside our groups. He starts by discussing the human brain's specialization for connection and how it evolved, and the fascinating way we automatically process the thoughts and feelings of others. He focuses on how connection works in practice and why it is important for learning, innovating, health and wellbeing. He then explores the negative consequences of our drive for connection and explains how it contributes to racism, sexism, nationalism, and many other social issues of our day, as well as its impact on our individual health and wellbeing. He ends with a positive perspective by examining how we can use our drive for connection to expand our in-group and extend multicultural societies for the good of our planet.

The program excludes low-income elderly Georgians and the disabled. Unlike the federal program, Georgia Pathways includes a work requirement, mandating recipients to participate in at least 80 hours per month of qualifying activities. Critics argue that the program falls short of covering all uninsured Georgians and that the state should adopt full Medicaid expansion, which offers a higher federal match.

In 2021, approximately 406 million disability-adjusted life years were caused by brain health conditions, which is higher than other widely acknowledged health threats such as cancer (260 million DALYs) or cardiovascular disease (402 million DALYs, according to Politico. Dr. Mark Williams, PhD is a neuroscientist committed to improving learning, productivity, and well-being for everyone.”  He has worked with thousands of students, teachers, health professionals, and company directors keen to understand how their brain works, how to perform optimally and maintain a healthy brain. He regularly runs programs on the neuroscience of learning, the neuroscience of emotions, how to hack your habits, how our brains create our reality, and the impact of modern technologies on our brains. Dr Mark's book The Connected Species: How understanding the evolution of our brain can change the world will be published internationally in 2023. Dr Mark has an extensive academic background in brain research and teaching. He is a professor of cognitive neuroscience, with over 25 years of experience conducting behavioral and brain imaging research focusing on how we interact with each other, how we learn, and how we think. He has taught the fundamentals of neuroscience to thousands of undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as publishing more than 70 articles in high-impact international journals and co-editing a book. He is an editorial board member of several international journals, has been awarded numerous high-profile fellowships and grants, and has worked at MIT in the USA and multiple universities in Australia. Not a typical ‘academic', Dr Mark comes from a disjointed family background. He hated school and experienced first-hand the challenges of getting ahead in a small town in Victoria. To describe these years as ‘colorful' is an understatement. Aged 25, something changed. Mark returned to learning, completed his HSC, and began what became a rapid rise to academic achievement, including being awarded both the CJ Martin and the Queen Elisabeth II Fellowships. He became fascinated with how we interact, learn and think. Mark went on to study brain plasticity, attention disorders, autism, prosopagnosia (face blindness), dementia, and eating disorders. He has been at the cutting edge of developing computational brain imaging analysis and the adoption of new technologies like virtual reality in research. Dr Mark draws on his extensive scientific background to work with schools, companies, and the public to develop evidence-based practices using neuroscience to enhance our education, work, and personal lives. His work has been highlighted in the media internationally including in The Guardian, The New York Times, and the Economist, and he is involved in several popular science documentaries. He joined me this week to tell me more.  For more information: https://www.drmarkwilliams.com/ Get the book: https://rethinkingthebrain.com/books/
