Welcome to a remarkable episode of Fearless Freedom with Dr. G! Today, we're diving into the inspiring journey of Gregory Stern. In 2013, at just 19 years old, Gregory faced a pivotal moment in his life—an ankle injury that would change everything. What began as a seemingly ordinary ankle sprain morphed into a chronic ordeal, subjecting him to unrelenting foot, hip, and back pain for a grueling five years. This constant discomfort not only tested his physical endurance but also pushed him to dark places where he felt disconnected from the activities he once cherished, despite his youthful age and athleticism. In the midst of this challenging period, Gregory's dream of attending medical school appeared distant and unattainable. His world revolved around the relentless pain, leaving him emotionally numb to any other aspirations. Fueled by an unyielding determination to heal, he made a bold and life-altering decision—to chart a completely new course. His journey led him to the hallowed halls of McGill University, where he embarked on a path of transformation, enrolling in the Masters in Physical Therapy program. What sets Gregory apart is his insatiable curiosity about the intricate workings of the human body. He became consumed by a relentless hunger to understand how our bodies operate. His quest for knowledge knew no bounds as he invested countless hours and resources to learn from some of the most esteemed therapists and movement coaches across the globe. Each day, he chiseled away at his physical challenges, conducting tireless experiments and achieving incremental progress. Today, Gregory's story takes an inspiring turn. The individual who once grappled with unrelenting pain is now pain-free. He's unlocked a newfound realm of movement freedom that had eluded him for most of his life. Gregory once again revels in the sports he adores, liberated from the chains of fear. He skillfully balances on slacklines and embarks on long hikes, even going barefoot—a feat that was once unimaginable during his painful journey. Join us in celebrating Gregory's extraordinary narrative—a testament to the indomitable human spirit, unwavering dedication, and the remarkable capacity of the human body to heal and flourish. Learn more about Gregory here: https://rebuild.groundupphysio.com/rebuild-your-body-from-the-ground-up--db51d Guest Bio: Greg Stern, the visionary behind From the Ground Up Physiotherapy, is a dedicated advocate for holistic health. His life's purpose revolves around assisting individuals in unraveling the true origins of their pain and discomfort. With unwavering dedication, he guides them on a transformative journey of self-discovery through movement. Unlike traditional approaches that often fixate solely on the source of pain, Greg's methodology is a symphony of holistic healing. He empowers individuals to explore entirely novel ways of engaging their bodies, reawakening dormant muscles, and unlocking forgotten movement patterns. In doing so, he nurtures the body's innate ability to function as a harmonious whole, allowing the site of pain to heal in tandem with the body rather than in opposition. As the driving force behind From the Ground Up, Greg's chief objective is to serve as a compass for those embarking on their unique health journeys. His mission extends beyond mere pain relief; it's about equipping individuals to not only overcome their challenges but to flourish in their daily lives. Greg firmly believes that injuries are not mere setbacks; they are opportunities for self-discovery. They serve as a gateway to learning, igniting curiosity, deepening one's understanding of the body, resolving issues, optimizing efficiency and performance, and unveiling untapped potential that had remained concealed. In Greg's world, each injury is a stepping stone toward a healthier, more vibrant self. ___________________ Subscribe to this podcast and download your favorite episodes to listen to later: ___________________ ⚕️ Are you a woman healthcare professional who is struggling to juggle everything in your personal and professional life?

Meet Monick Halm Monick Halm is the founder of Real Estate Investor Goddesses. She is an educator and advocate for female real estate investors and has a mission to help 1 million women achieve financial freedom through real estate. Monick is herself a real estate investor and syndicator and owns, together with her investors, over 1000 rental doors across thirteen states. She is a graduate of McGill University and Columbia Law School. She is the #1 bestselling author of The Real Estate Investor Goddess Handbook and Invest Like a Goddess - Advice from the Most Successful Women in Real Estate, a TEDx speaker, podcast host, real estate strategy mentor, yogi, world traveler, recovered attorney, wife, and mother of three amazing kids. Monick grew up with two parents from Haiti who emphasized the importance of getting a good education and becoming either a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Monick chose to be a lawyer but soon realized that she did not like the profession and found it to be soul-sucking. It wasn't until she was let go while pregnant with her first child that she realized the blessing of being given the freedom to try her hand at real estate investing. This blessing in disguise gave her the ability to start her business which now educates millions of women on how to invest like a goddess. Investing Like A Goddess Real Estate investing is not one size fits all. Monick shared a great metaphor to help you figure out your investment vision and how to reverse engineer it. She shared that if you were going on a vacation, you'd first figure out where you want to go. Do you want to travel abroad to the South of Frances (yes, please!), the pyramids in Egypt, the grand canyon, or perhaps a beach in Cape Cod? Like planning a vacation, you'll want to figure out your vision. For example, do you want enough passive income to retire from any job? Perhaps you want to be set for retirement and have a significant nest egg, or maybe you want to leave a fantastic legacy for your children's children's children. Clarify your vision first. Next, you'll want to address what kind of trip you're taking. Are you going to be on a cruise, biking through the Alps, riding in an RV, flying first class, or perhaps hiking? Similarly, it's important to understand and choose the investing options that fit your greater vision, which might be investing in buildings, syndications, duplexes, single-family homes, etc. Lastly, you need to know what resources you have available and how to leverage them. We talked about how having resources doesn't always mean money. It could be your time, your relationships, or even your experience Why Women Fear Investing In the past, it was dangerous for women to own their power. It wasn't until 1974 that women could get their own loans without having a man accompany them. Often the fear stems from not being sure how to invest in real estate or where to begin. Monick wants you to know that this is something anyone can do, whether you grew up on food stamps or with a family who owned real estate. Check out her free training on her website to learn more and get started, and get her book, Invest Like a Goddess. It's time for us women to build our own wealth, stability, and financial security. The Goddess Secret Sauce 1) Pleasure - The new reframe is ‘Pleasure through' vs. ‘Muscle through.' Don't try to muscle through anything. This hyper-masculine way of doing life will lead you to exhaustion. Pleasure does NOT mean comfort, though. Remember, there is no growth in a comfort zone or comfort in a growth zone. Prioritizing pleasure is revolutionary and often uncomfortable. 2) Intuition - this is your life GPS! Don't expect your intuition to be logical. It doesn't run on logic, and rather, it is your direct line to your Higher Power that will show you the path best for you. The goal here is to learn to trust your intuition fully. 3) Mindset - your fears and limiting beliefs will keep you stuck and held back from abundance if not addressed. Much of your success will come from healing and moving past worn-out stories and beliefs that are not true. 4) Sisterhood - women are biologically wired for community and sisterhood. We are not meant to do life (or investing) alone. Scientific research shows that women experience a release of oxytocin, the feel-good hormone, with intimacy, breastfeeding, and in the community. We learn better and get out of the stress state quicker in sisterhood. The Abundant Path I love how Monick reminded us that we'll always have challenges and problems; it's part of how we learn and grow. The choice is whether you want rich life problems or poor life problems. Don't forget that you get to choose; her suggestion is to choose the abundant path!

Birds and bees do it … and so do fish. In a discovery that highlights the adaptive benefits of walking, scientists have discovered fish that can walk on land. Not fin-flap their bodies, mind you, but ambulate like reptiles. And speaking of which, new research shows that T Rex, the biggest reptile of them all, wasn't a sprinter, but could be an efficient hunter by outwalking its prey. Find out the advantage of legging it, and how human bipedalism stacks up. Not only is walking good for our bodies and brains, but not walking can change your personality and adversely affect your health. Guests: Hans Larsson – Paleontologist and biologist, and Director of the Redpath Museum at McGill University in Montréal. Shane O'Mara – Neuroscientist and professor of experimental brain research at Trinity College Dublin. He is the author of “In Praise of Walking.” Brooke Flammang – Biologist at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

Welcome to episode #894 of Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast. Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation - The ThinkersOne Podcast - Episode #894. When you live in a city like Montreal, you often get introduced to people who have both "done the work" and are eager to stay connected. A long while back, I had the pleasure of meeting Professor Karl Moore. And, over the years, we have become friends who often run into one another on the streets of Montreal. With a distinguished position at McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management and over 25 years as a Fellow at the University of Oxford, Dr. Karl Moore is no stranger to the leadership pulse of today's world. His interaction with CEOs and the new-gen leaders, the millennials and Gen Zs, is not just cursory — it's insightful. Karl's exploration into the world of CEOs started with his Ph.D., leading him to study leadership dynamics and strategic evolution. His McGill MBA course, CEO Insights, has become a unique conduit for 31 CEOs to share wisdom each fall, morphing over eight years into the highly-acclaimed The CEO Series on Bell Media's CJAD radio station. These engaging one-on-one interviews with prominent CEOs find their way into Forbes and Les Affaires, magnifying his reach and insight. Having collaborated with the legendary Henry Mintzberg for two decades on various leadership programs and having seasoned his expertise with eleven years at IBM and Hitachi, Karl's journey into academia reflects depth and innovation. His five-year faculty stint at Oxford's Said Business School adds another rich layer to his profile. Karl recently published his tenth book, Ok Boomers - Working with Millennials and Zs - a discerning look into the dynamic between generations in leadership. His subsequent work, We Are All Ambiverts Now, based on over 750 interviews with C-suite executives, promises to continue the conversation. His recent talk at Harvard and annual teaching at Stanford stand as testimonials to his profound impact on business thinking. Karl's nomination for the Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards in the Leadership Category acknowledges him as a leading thinker in his field. In the panorama of business leadership and academia, Karl stands as a thought leader, bridging generational insights and pioneering change.

On June 30, 1960—the day of the Congo's independence—Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba gave a fiery speech in which he conjured a definitive shift away from a past of colonial oppression toward a future of sovereignty, dignity, and justice. His assassination a few months later showed how much neocolonial forces and the Cold War jeopardized African movements for liberation. In Students of the World: Global 1968 and Decolonization in the Congo (Duke UP, 2022), Pedro Monaville traces a generation of Congolese student activists who refused to accept the foreclosure of the future Lumumba envisioned. These students sought to decolonize university campuses, but the projects of emancipation they articulated went well beyond transforming higher education. Monaville explores the modes of being and thinking that shaped their politics. He outlines a trajectory of radicalization in which gender constructions, cosmopolitan dispositions, and the influence of a dissident popular culture mattered as much as access to various networks of activism and revolutionary thinking. By illuminating the many worlds inhabited by Congolese students at the time of decolonization, Monaville charts new ways of writing histories of the global 1960s from Africa. Dr. Pedro Monaville has a Ph.D. in African History from the University of Michigan, and is currently an Associate Professor in the History Department at McGill University. He was previously an Assistant Professor at NYU Abu Dhabi. Dr. Sara Katz has a Ph.D. in African History from the University of Michigan, and is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in Grant Operations Management and Creative Engagement at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Rob Whitley, an associate professor of psychiatry at McGill University and a researcher at the Douglas Research Center, will be discussing the important topic of veterans' mental health, resilience, and recovery. His research shows men and veterans prefer action-oriented healing modalities, such as fishing and hunting and shoulder-to-shoulder activities. Welcome to The Hard To Kill Podcast, hosted by army veteran, founder, author, ironman, dad, science teacher and content creator, Dave Morrow. On this podcast you'll hear how to get leaner, fitter and harder to kill and the many lessons to help Dave reach his goal of helping 100k veterans lose 2 million pounds. Timestamps: [00:01:43] Podcast host Dave Morrow aims to improve the health and wellness of military personnel by sharing insightful information. He encourages veterans to sign up for his newsletter and support his business through Patreon. In this episode, he speaks with Dr. Whitley, an expert on veterans' mental health and recovery. [00:04:14] Wild weather caused chaos and power outages. [00:07:39] Researcher focuses on people and mental health. [00:10:47] Men's mental health gains visibility, but challenges persist. [00:14:24] Recovery model in psychiatry challenges traditional views. [00:20:30] Research shows men and veterans prefer action-oriented healing modalities, such as fishing and hunting. Shoulder-to-shoulder activities are beneficial for men's mental health. Peer support groups are also helpful. One-size-fits-all mental health treatments are not sufficient. Funding community groups may be a better investment. [00:25:18] Bureaucracy, wilderness adventures, and communication differences. [00:30:41] Diverse programs, online support, and setting goals. [00:35:17] Veterans seek camaraderie and community for healing. [00:41:07] War impacts veterans, but understanding is lacking. [00:45:04] Teachers and community leaders should have military experience. Suicide rates are higher among veterans. Programs should be created to mimic military life. [00:48:10] Veterans struggled with nonadaptive institutions, missed opportunities. [00:53:00] Retired lieutenant colonel criticizes general staff. [00:56:21] More effort needed to help veterans thrive. [00:59:09] Willing to partner with grassroots groups; email me.

What is the reason behind pet food manufacturers being able to evade accountability in many instances where their products have caused harm and even fatalities? Is there adequate oversight provided by regulatory bodies designed to monitor the food system or are they facing limitations that hinder them from effectively carrying out their responsibilities? If you are in the pet industry or a pet owner, you owe it to yourself, your pets, and your customers to read this book. With the 2023 release of TOXIC. From Factory to Food Bowl, Pet Food Is a Risky Business, Phyllis Entis has attained her long-standing goal of supplying pet owners with the information they need to understand the issues behind twenty years of pet food recalls and safety alerts. A graduate of McGill University and the University of Toronto, Phyllis Entis received her introduction to the field of food safety at the hands of Canada's Health Protection Branch, where she spent the first seven years of her professional life immersed in Salmonella, Staphylococcus, E. coli, and other bad actors from the microbial world. After a long career in the food safety industry, Entis became a freelance consultant and writer. Her first book was published in 2002 by the Food Processors Institute. It was followed five years later by Food Safety: Old Habits, New Perspectives (published by ASM Press). In 2020, she released TAINTED. From Farm Gate to Dinner Plate, Fifty Years of Food Safety Failure.

This week we're seeking the truth about the strange but pervasive idea that people can use sticks or rods to mysteriously locate things. Water is often the target, but certainly isn't the only one. It might be considered aqueous yet innocuous when the quest is just for a new well, but what if the seeker is being paid to find treasure? Or oil? Or cancer? Knowing how this stuff works (and doesn't) is a fascinating gateway into understanding the human brain and the tools we can use to test this are a great entrance to the methodologies of Scientific Skepticism.

https://razib.substack.com This is where you will find all the podcasts from Razib Khan's Substack and original video content. Today Razib talks to Lyman Stone, a demographer and Ph.D. candidate at McGill University, about the fall, rise and fall of religion in America. In 2020, Stone published a report, Promise and Peril: The History of American Religiosity and Its Recent Decline, where he outlined the demographic and religious history of the US, and its possible future. They first cover the historical context of American religion in the 18th century, reviewing the elite rise in secularism, the radicalism of the founding's Disestablishmentarianism and the early 19th-century legislation against the mixing of church and state. Alexis de Tocqueville observed in the early 1800's that the US combined religious pluralism on a social scale, high levels of personal piety and governmental secularism. This was a sharp break from European traditions, and Stone addresses the thesis whether this explains why America still remains much more religious in terms of observance than nations like England and Germany. But despite America's comparative religiosity, it has become much more secular in the last generation. Razib talks to Stone about the rise of the religious “nones” across the Western world, and the decline of social conservatives within the Republican party. Stone points out that for most, religious identity and level of practice are established during the teen years, with religious education (or lack thereof) being the biggest predictor of religious adherence (or lack thereof). The relative secularism of Zoomers and Millennials, Americans born after 1980, presages a much less Christian America as the 21st century's first half progresses. But Stone argues that this is not necessarily the final state of American religiosity; secular America in 1800 underwent the Second Great Awakening, which led to a much more evangelical nation by 1900. Rather than a linear progress toward an end state, religious history seems cyclical.

The Rev. Ben Crosby, a priest in the Episcopal Church serving in the Anglican Church of Canada, comes on Doth Protest to discuss why clergy and laity need not be shallow but deeply engage the Scriptures and our theological heritage. (We were a bit salty at times... but all in love.) This conversation was inspired by Ben's recent blog post on his Substack Draw Near With Faith titled "What the Reformation Teaches Us About the Pastoral Nature of Doctrine" (so we get a bit into how Martin Luther can inform us on this topic). The Rev. Ben Crosby is an Associate Priest at Christ Church Cathedral in Montreal and a PhD student at McGill University. He has written for Earth and Altar, The Living Church, and Journal of Anglican Studies.

The World Congress of Prehabilitation Medicine preceded this year's Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM). TopMedTalk had an open table and this podcast contains two of the conversations we recorded in between presentations and live streaming. We mention two trials: https://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/13/1/e065992 And: https://clinicaltrials.gov/study/NCT05756283 We hear from, Heather Gill, a vascular surgeon at McGill University and Research Chair for the Canadian Society of vascular surgery, President elect about the wide applicability of prehabilitation balanced against the evidence and Professor Enoch Akowuah, Chair of cardiac surgery at Newcastle University and a consultant cardiac surgeon and at South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in the UK.
If fewer people are buying and reading books, why should a thought leader write one? Today we delve into the world of authorship and publishing with Henry Mintzberg. Henry is a Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University and the author of more than 20 books including Managers Not MBAs: A Hard Look at the Soft Practice of Managing and Management Development and Simply Managing: What Managers Do - and Can Do Better. Our conversation starts by discussing where you find the value in writing a book. Whether it be the intrinsic value of codifying your thought leadership or the extrinsic value of higher engagement and client acquisition. Henry shares with us his compulsion to write books, regardless of if they succeed or not. He discusses how a few newer books have not done as well as expected and how difficult topics like climate change might play a part in those results. When publishing about important, but hard topics that many would rather not think about how do you get your message out? Henry talks about expanding into new modalities to capture the audience's attention and how hard it is to get uninterrupted attention for your topic. He explains how interruption is just one of the reasons a book can have a bigger impact than articles, even if the book reaches only a fraction of the audience a short-form piece might. Three Key Takeaways: · Reaching ten thousand people with a book can be far more influential than reaching one hundred thousand people with an article. · A publication date is not a measurement of value. Many books continue to be relevant years after their publication. · Do what is in your heart. Don't let anyone talk you into something else because you will end up doing it badly.
Right now, some 3,700 workers from 27 Metro grocery stores across the Greater Toronto Area are on strike – and they're not alone. From British Columbia's ports to Manitoba's liquor stores to Hollywood, a wave of people across different industries have gone on strike this summer.

Twentieth-century African American history cannot be told without accounting for the significant influence of Pan-African thought, just as the story of U.S. policy from 1900 to 2000 cannot be told without accounting for fears of an African World. In the early 1900s, Marcus Garvey and his followers perceived the North American mainland, particularly Canada following U.S. authorities' deportation of Garvey to Jamaica, as a forward-operating base from which to liberate the Black masses. After World War II, Vietnam War resisters, Black Panthers, and Caribbean students joined the throngs of cross-border migrants. In time, as urban uprisings proliferated in northern U.S. cities, the prospect of coalitions among the Black Power, Red Power, and Quebecois Power movements inspired U.S. and Canadian intelligence services to collaborate, infiltrate, and sabotage Black organizations across North America. Assassinations of "Black messiahs" further radicalized revolutionaries, rekindling the dream for an African World from Washington, D.C., to Toronto to San Francisco to Antigua to Grenada and back to Africa. Alarmed, Washington's national security elites invoked the Cold War as the reason to counter the triangulation of Black Power in the Atlantic World, funneling arms clandestinely from the United States and Canada to the Caribbean and then to its proxies in southern Africa. By contending that twentieth-century global Black liberation movements began within the U.S.-Canadian borderlands as cross-border, continental struggles, Cross-Border Cosmopolitans: The Making of a Pan-African North America (University of North Carolina Press, 2023) reveals the revolutionary legacies of the Underground Railroad and America's Great Migration and the hemispheric and transatlantic dimensions of this history.
