IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...…you'll learn about the critical role metabolism plays in your body's energy and performance. Important new science findings about human metabolic health shows how you can change your metabolism. To help you make these changes, this episode gives you practical tips and tools for measuring your metabolism and ways to manage it effectively.Guest Michal Mor, Ph.D., co-founded Lumen with her twin sister, Merav Mor, Ph.D., and three long-time entrepreneur friends nearly a decade ago. As Chief of Metabolic Health & Science, Michal's background includes degree studies in Medical Laboratory Sciences and Physiology with an emphasis on cardiac arrhythmia. The Lumen founders set out to close the gap of what existed in the science and something people could actually use to manage their metabolic health.Both Michal and her twin, Merav, were multiple-year Ironman participants. Athletic performance—and how to improve it—influenced their work with metabolism. Four years of research and development plus more years of validation studies and beta test users went into developing Lumen. Lumen is a hand-held device that accurately measures your metabolism through the breath. It uses a CO2 sensor and flow meter to measure the CO2 concentration in your breath, indicating if your body is in carb or fat burn.“So, this ability to shift between them, it's not only good for athletic performance it's also improving our quality of life,” Michal says. “It enables us to enjoy life to our fullest potential. It's about longevity. It's about being able to achieve our goals, not having those mood swings. This is so much more than improving athletic performance.”Lumen has accumulated a metabolic measurement database with over 20m measurements. These insights have shown how lifestyle habits affect metabolism and the body more than previously thought possible. Listen on to learn how with just one breath in the morning, you can set your metabolism course for the day and then monitor it throughout the day.SPECIAL OFFER FOR THE HUMAN UPGRADE LISTENERS: https://lumen.me, use code Asprey50 to get $50 off a Lumen deviceWE APPRECIATE OUR PARTNERS.

Hey everybody! Episode 88 of the show is out. In this episode, I spoke with Alumnis (Alejandra Ortiz). She had been highly recommended to me by a good friend and then recently someone who was dieting with Merav and myself also highly recommended her. Alumnis was also doing a retreat right next door and so it seemed serendipitous. Alumnis is a Colombian teacher who works with the voice. We had a really fascinating conversation about the power of the voice, how it can be opened and truly found, its healing effects, the power of the word, and we touched a bit on plant medicines as well, especially as the voice and song are often an integral part of many traditions. I really enjoyed this conversation and Alumnis really has a beautiful presence and wisdom that she shares from her own journey and work with others. It was a pleasure for me to sit down with her and I hope one day to sit down with her again and learn more from her. I trust you all will find this episode illuminating.

Since 2005, she has offered thousands of voice and sound healing sessions internationally, sharing her connection with singing as path of self-knowledge and transformation. She incorporates yoga, taoist training, drama therapy and meditation, as well as her love for water and plants, in her healing work with sound.Almunis was initiated into the mysteries of sacred sound by Sarah Benson in 2001 (Earth Sound Light Center, Boston, USA), and was fortunate to study:Yoga of the Voice with Silvia Nakkach (VoxMundi), singing with Lisa Thorson (Berklee College of Music), Maria Olga Piñeros (Colombia) and Livia Koppman (Argentina).

In the second episode dedicated to the pre-Ottoman history of Jerusalem, Merav Mack, Jerusalemite and scholar, takes us through the street of medieval Jerusalem, discussing the libraries and the books preserved in the Old City. With Merav we talked how she moved from working on Genoa in the Middle Ages to Jerusalem showing how cities throughout the Mediterranean were connected by merchants, pilgrims, scholars and in a sense by war. Merav had been involved in a very famous exhibition hosted at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, "Jerusalem 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven." From here we moved to discuss libraries and their books in Jerusalem. Libraries are one of the most secret and well protected locations in Jerusalem, they preserved the heritage and history of the communities and families that built them. A city without a library is a city with no history and Merav tells us the history of Jerusalem through its libraries. We talked about access to libraries and their contents, particularly for women; this eventually brought us to discuss the amazing Mar Saba Monastery located just in the outskirts of Jerusalem.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/jerusalemunplugged.

Then I let go of my defenses and I delve into my existential struggles but in this transitional space of literature which is so unique because the story of the characters is our story"    Episode Description: We begin our conversation about the reading experience with Merav sharing with us her story of growing up in a family of writers. We discuss the factors within us that lead us to read and how it shares certain similarities with the clinical encounter. She considers the use we make of literature to help us make the intolerable more playfully bearable. The work of Jorge Semprun is discussed with examples given from his memoir Literature or Life. Merav shares with us her sense that the depressive position informs and allows for a more ethical engagement with the literary experience. We close with her reading the poem Eating Poetry by Mark Strand.    Our Guest: Merav Roth Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist and a training and supervising psychoanalyst at the Israeli Psychoanalytic Society; She is the head of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy program, Sackler School of Medicine, Tel-Aviv University; and a researcher of psychoanalysis and culture (mainly literature and trauma).

Together with Joshua Durban, Roth edited and wrote the Preface and introductions to the book Melanie Klein – Essential Papers II and also edited Klein's Psychoanalysis of Children and Brenman Pick's Authenticity in the Psychoanalytic Encounter. Her book Reading the Reader – a Psychoanalytic Perspective on Literature, was published by Routledge and is translated into Spanish.    Recommended Readings:   Jorge Semprun.

Merav volunteers as a curator on iNaturalist, and has an astounding 42800 observations on iNaturalist. She has also lead a project to document and raise awareness about the tragically high roadkill mortality of pacific newts along Lexington reservoir in the San Francisco Bay Area.Merav is one of those people who has many fascinating projects and nature observations. But today, we're talking about her latest idea - Gall Week 2021, which is planned from October 2 to October 10 (yes, it is a week PLUS a bonus weekend!).The idea is to get everyone, regardless of naturalist ability, to get out and observe these fascinating creatures.If you aren't sure what a plant gall is, I can point back just two episodes ago to my interview with Adam Kranz covering all things galls. But the short answer is these are beautiful and sometimes bizarre growths on plant tissues induced by another organism, such as a wasp, midge, or many others. They often develop vivid colors and evocative shapes, and all have fascinating natural histories. These growths occur specifically to support the life cycle of the inducer, and are often induced in amazingly precise ways.Today Merav tells us about the project, how to participate, and has a few tips and tricks for documenting your observations.Full Show NotesLinks To Topics DiscussedGall Week 2021 iNaturalist Project - join this project so you can add it to your gall observationsBooks and Gall ResourcesGallformers.org - searchable (by host plant or gall) website with detailed descriptions of galls Plant Galls of the Western United States, by Ronald Russo – HIGHLY recommendediNaturalist Gall Projects:Galls of CaliforniaGalls of North AmericaLeaf and Plant Galls - a global project Merav has a pamphlet of San Francisco Bay Area galls

Referring to the strong correlation between the party and the foundation of the country, Michaeli says that "in order for Israel to now re-build its Zionist vision, Labor must re-fulfil its leadership role." Michaeli laments Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s cynical use, as she puts it, of Israeli Arabs, noting that late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was in fact the first to leader to put investment in the Arab society and equality on the national agenda.

Everyone has a story to tell, the big question is, do you tell your story correctly? In today's episode, me and my friend Merav Richter, an incredible professional who studies archetypes and the relationship between storytelling, philosophy and our human development, talk and share incredible tips, concepts and insights on how archetypes can help us.  She hasn’t always been a TedX speaker, master storyteller, and ghost writer behind big names in the publishing and speaking world! Her journey to her current expertise is fascinating and shows how powerful your story can be to captivate and connect to your audience.  We break down key parts for each archetype so you can create your very own signature story vault to learn and understand more about your business and yourself while selling better to your audience. If you’ve ever wondered how to really use stories in your business, this is the episode for you!    Biggest Takeaways: Stories sell. Think about what is it that allows you to be relatable, to allow you to connect to the people that you are here to serve. Part by part - heart before smart™. Why do we get it wrong when we try to do it “smarts” first. Sales is all about numbers, but we can’t forget about the non-numbers factor. The best tool for a storyteller archetype is to actually record themselves and then have that transcribed. It's a constant journey. We have natural tendencies, so how do you use this to your own advantage? It is great to have emotion. We often compare ourselves to chapter 10 or the epilogue, the end of the book, when we are still in the prologue   Highlights: How to lead the concept of signature stories [04:48] What makes a signature story [13:09] Where to start [18:35] A rule in the publishing world [20:05] How you can make sure that you don't overlook these gems [29:02] The idea of an archetype [30:14] Go and pick a story [41:18] How to connect stories with your business [42:38] We are still in the prologue [52:58] Need consistent leads? Before you spend more hours on any social media platform, make sure you know how to generate consistent leads on demand. Don’t get trapped spending hours with little to show for your efforts or talking to tire kickers who have no intention to buy from you! In 5 days you’ll know exactly what you’re offering, who your best buyer is and what they are actually buying so you can create a never ending supply of leads. The best part?

Hey everybody! Episode 28 of the show is out. In this show, I spoke with my friend and colleague Merav Artzi. I have known and worked with Merav for a number of years. We did the same plant-medicine initiation and training, working with tobacco and tree diets. Merav is a great wealth of knowledge and has a depth of experience working with plant medicines. She runs ceremonies and dietas in the tobacco tradition in which she was trained. I have a lot of respect for Merav and her work. It's one of the main reasons I decided to join forces with her and offer plant dietas together with her, joining our knowledge and offering the benefits of working with a man and woman. I think you all will get a lot out of this podcast. It's a chance to learn about her and also more about tobacco, a very powerful and sacred plant that isn't so well known. To view bonus material and extended conversations, check out my Patreon page below. Enjoy!“At an early age, I left my home country of Israel to study fine arts in Europe. In 2009, while traveling in South America, I decided to go to the Amazon. The work with Ayahuasca was a gate to the magical world of medicinal plants. The Amazon is truly the pharmacy of planet Earth. I have been working for eight years as a healer trained with Amazonian plants, specializing in Tobacco. Beforehand, I apprenticed with Maestro Ernesto Garcia Torres in Iquitos. As a healer, I work with patients suffering from hormonal imbalance, anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, and more. In addition, I give Master Plant diets and teach students who are interested in learning how to heal with Tobacco.Tobacco is the medicine of my heart and I am here to share this medicine with the world. I invite you, with lots of love, to read about Tobacco, Plant Diets, and to take part in upcoming events.”For more information on Merav and her work, visit her website at: https://tobaccodiets.com/And also for more information about working with Merav and Jason on upcoming plant dietas, visit Merav's site above or also at: https://www.NicotianaRustica.org This episode of the show is sponsored by the Temple of the Way of Light.

My guest in this episode is Merav Vonshak. Merav is an ecologist, naturalist, and citizen science organizer located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Merav is the founder of BioBlitz Club, a group that organizes BioBlitzes to raise awareness for environmental causes, often partnering with specific organizations, or simply to raise community awareness of nature that is nearby.If you're unaware of what a BioBlitz is - they  are focused efforts to document all living organisms within a defined location and period of time. I've participated in a couple of these events now, and must say that I'm hooked. BioBlitzes provide a sense of exploration and discovery, they get you out in nature, and have a wonderfully enthusiastic community to learn from.Back to Merav...prior to founding BioBlitz club, she received a Doctorate in Ecology at Tel Aviv University, and had postdoctoral fellowships at Tel Aviv University and Stanford University. She is an expert in ant biology, having studied impacts of alien ant species and human disturbance on ant communities.Merav has a wealth of ecological information, and also a curator on iNaturalist.In this episode we discuss the story of Merav's formation of BioBlitz Club, some of the surprising discoveries from these events - including in highly urban areas, how to get people engaged and caring about nature, her ant research and how you can even identify ant species by smell (some smell like Banana Cream Pie!), using BioBlitzes and Citizen Science as part of a broader conservation awareness playbook, and much more.Shownotes at https://podcast.naturesarchive.com/2020/10/28/merav/

In addition, Labor leader Amir Peretz, despite promising for more than a year to not join a coalition led by Benjamin Netanyahu, was posed to do exactly that. Michaeli was resisting the move, including at a vote of the party's executive on Sunday 26 April. We discussed that issue with her, as well as Netanyahu's plans to annex parts of the West Bank, the recent elections, threats to democracy and more.

Merav Kamel and Halil Balabin are from Israel and were doing a residency at PRAM studios in Prague, CZ. I had a chance to meet with them and discuss Critical reviews, Success, Fully funded residencies, Application fees, Artist statements, Art materials, Sketchbooks, Journals, and Teaching. https://halilandmerav.weebly.com   About Merav Kamel (b. 1988 in Israel) and Halil Balabin (b. 1987 in Israel) have been an artistic duo since 2012, living and working in Tel Aviv. Both were awarded BFA at the Becalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem (Kamel in 2012, Balabin in 2014). Their textile work is an associative way of thinking - attaching various organs from amputations, hybridizations, and compositions that create a new object. It is a mutation of lust and fantasy with a humorous touch that connects a number of familiar images: cartoons, surrealism, poetism, a mixture of high and low art, art history, and Israel's conflict and bizarre space. The stitched statues of Merava and Halil are the material embodiment of inconspicuous jokes, bonmotos, puns and twisted historical quotes, enchanted by simple and prosaic "witty" jokes, vulgarisms, social and political criticism. They include bold images with a hidden thorn, and that's also how they interact with the viewer: sweetly seductive, then painful and provocative, depending on the story they reveal. The work is hand-sewn, with great attention to detail. They evoke the folklore traditions of Israeli art and add new layers to it. The common art of Merava and Halil blurs the masculine-feminic dichotomy of their works and enables fluid gender identity. This creates an ever-changing androgynous being with the ability to play more than one role. Please be sure to visit our Patreon page and help support the podcast by being part of the conversation.

Best for Baby by Rivqa Rafael When I jack in, I shove the plug into its socket harder than I should. The disconnect–reconnect tone combination sounds; the terminal is as grumpy as I am. Who wouldn’t be? I’ve been kept back late in the lab to finish a job. Which was stolen from me. By the person who asked me to do this, as a “favor.” Who also happens to be my supervisor, so I can’t say no. I load up the interface, drilling straight down to the zygote’s chromosomal level. Hayden’s been a bit careless, like he always is on the rare occasions he actually gets in the wet lab. I get to work, fixing his mistakes. Back in my body, I’m grinding my teeth and hunching my shoulders. Before I sink deeper into the VR, I take some deep breaths and roll my shoulders the way Lena showed me. Her yoga obsession has fringe benefits for me—my body needs to be relaxed if I’m going to do my job properly. Just for a moment, I’m back in our living room with Lena coaxing Kris and me to stretch with her. It’s enough to refocus me. For all that it’s a science, there’s an art to working in the interface. The prion scalpel is tiny—obviously—and delicate; it needs to be handled with care, the type of care that only comes from being completely in tune with your neural implant and the system it’s connected to. It’s something Hayden seems to lack. Keeping my movements graceful (thank you, Lena), I begin to repair the damage. In here, I’m both the pipette and the hand depressing the button; I’m the prion scalpel; I’m the machine.

I stretch towards his space, removing my earplugs—whichI have taken to wearing since even the tomtes snore something terrible.Luxuriate in the furs: big piles of wolf pelts and bear skins that make up our bed under the intertwinedroots of these seven great pine trees which are our roof, warm,with the wind through them and older than even Klampe-Lampe, who has risen already and left. But he’ll be back soon.I can see the pile of battered, burnished gold and silver, stillwaiting to bedizen him, bracers and torcs and earrings and necklace upon necklace—careless ugly richesthat have lasted generations of trolls living hundredsof years, all mounded up and displayed on knobbled bodies and in untamed hair. I pluck my earring, bracer, heavy silverbeads from the ground and put them on. When he returns, he’llcarry me in his left hand to the throne room under the mountain.     And now for “Best for Baby” by Rivqa Rafael, read by A.J. Fitzwater.

When I started, I thought I’d never remember the sequences, but I know our most common mods by heart now. Finding my rhythm, I begin to work a little faster; I’ve almost forgotten about Hayden and his insistence on getting his grubby hands all over this project. I don’t have forever in here—the zygote needs to go back on ice—but I’m in the zone now and there’s still plenty of time. I’ve got this. Sure, I’m not going to get any credit for it, but Hayden’s going to owe me. I’m logging everything, so he can’t conveniently “forget.” If I play my cards right, this might be the last step to me finally getting a promotion. Goodness knows I deserve one. Maybe Hayden would even back me up. I zoom out to look back at my work so far, and gasp. Something’s wrong. I should be about halfway done, but it’s like I was never here. No, worse. There are deadly cancer mutations here, lots of them, right where I was working. All types that wouldn’t show up until later in life, too. None of it was here before, and time is short.   You had to know Hayden pretty well to pick up his aura of desperation as he talked up the state-of-the-art equipment. PCR machines and centrifuges just look like boxes with touchscreens if you don’t understand what they do, after all. The couple lacked the air of anguish that infertile couples usually have when they walk through. Or the wonder often displayed by more-than-twos and gonadically incompatible—my heart panged as I thought of what it would take for us, how we’d—stop, it was pointless even to think about it, I told myself for the millionth time. I just worked here; I’d never be a client. Kris had already banned me from talking too much about work. Like me, she was implanted. You grow up knowing your place, not rocking the boat, aiming for what’s feasible. Lena was more willing to indulge me the fantasy; would we split everything evenly, or would one of us provide the mitochondria and the other two a set of chromosomes each? Both could work. I snapped myself out of it. Kris was right about this one; I just wished I could convince myself to believe it as thoroughly as she did. These two eyed the machinery with indifference. Probably here for mods, and mods only. If they weren’t using a surrogate, I’d drink my Taq polymerase. “Impressive. How do you guarantee your results, though?” Mom-to-be glittered with diamonds—genuine, I could only assume. Closest I’d ever got to any, anyway. “As I already explained...” Hayden caught my eye before I could look away. “Perhaps you’d like to meet one of our geneticists? Merav can answer your questions in far more detail.” Dad-to-be’s suit was so well-cut and so fine, it might even be real wool. His hair was immaculate and he smelled of expensive cologne. His HUD glasses were shiny, a model too new for me to recognize. “That would be excellent.” Setting my face into a neutral expression, I swiveled on my stool to face them properly while Hayden introduced them as Mr Blake and Dr Ashdowne. The names rang a vague bell and they were obviously capital-I Important, but I didn’t work it out until later. Hayden scolded me later for not standing up, but it just didn’t occur to me. As it was, I was going to have to start mixing my reagents again by the time this interruption was over. “I’d be happy to.” I did my best to distill and explain the years of research into genetic variables, what we could reliably reproduce and what we couldn’t, how we managed successive generations of mods, and how we tested each zygote’s chromosomes before allowing it to progress to blastomere—all non-invasive. They nodded along as I spoke; I couldn’t tell if they really understood, but Hayden smiled at me, which was a rare occurrence, so I was lulled into feeling grateful. At some point, they started talking to each other, right over the top of me. They dithered about hair color, wondering whether the stereotypes about blonde hair still held. Did they notice the irritation in my voice as I tried to explain how many other variables might be at play in their child’s success? “We just want the best for our baby,” Ashdowne said, almost pleading, but there was an edge to her voice that made me think that “best” meant something different to her than it did to me. “Of course. But this is just the beginning. We can’t control much of growth and development when upbringing plays such a large part. And epigenetics have an effect as well.” Keeping my voice even and patient was hard; there were only so many ways I could say the same thing. “Think of it as... venture capitalism. You’re making the best possible investment with every tool at your disposal, but that doesn’t guarantee that things will work out exactly how you planned.” Ashdowne nodded, but Blake’s eyes were flinty. “You’re saying our child might crash, and it won’t be your responsibility?” “I’m saying your kid might dye their hair one day, and that’s not something we can control for. We’re very clear about what we promise and what we don’t. It’s in the contract; I assume you’ve read it. It’s up to you.” Maybe it wasn’t the right PR line, but I wasn’t PR. They signed the contract.   I put the zygote back on ice and try to log into another. This couple only wants one child; that’s part of why they want it perfect. Still, each client typically has more than will be used; we need that margin for error as much as the IVF specialists do. There are four more zygotes. This should be salvageable. But each one gives me an “unavailable” notification. What is going on? Returning to the first zygote, I allow myself a tiny sigh of relief when I can still get back in. It’s a mess, but I can fix it in time. I think. I set up an extra firewall, the best I can code on the fly. We’re down to the wire here. Last chance to get it right, assuming the other zygotes are gone for good. If this one doesn’t work, doesn’t stick, we’re going to have to fess up and get more samples—if they don’t cancel the contract, which wouldn’t surprise me. I’d heard that Ashdowne had found the induction and retrieval unusually difficult, and it wasn’t fun at the best of times. So much for the Important clients. Fucking Hayden, honestly. Working in the same order I always do, I begin cleaning up the chromosomes. Again. It’s almost easier this time. The errors are so obvious, it would be comical if it weren’t so dire. As though someone used a pickaxe instead of a prion scalpel. I’m wincing, I realize, just looking at these errors. I’ve never seen so many cancer mutations in one place. Forcing my body to relax, I get back into my rhythm. This is definitely within my capabilities to fix, and with the logs I have running, maybe I’ll get some recognition for it. Maybe even that bonus Hayden had hinted at, even though it’s seeming less and less likely that it’ll be him authorizing it. My firewall pings; someone’s trying to log in. Hayden. “That firewall is going to look very suspicious to the auditors,” he says, using a private channel on the company comms. “Standard protocol when there’s a security breach, which there certainly seems to have been. I hope you’re looking into it, Hayden?” I’m pretty sure he isn’t, but I choose my words carefully, aware that my logs will pick this up along with everything else.   Hayden added me to the team officially, and I had to sit in on endless meetings when I should have been doing real work. He assured me that it would be worth it; that there were bonuses for jobs like this. That is, jobs for billionaire corporate royalty like Oliver Blake and Penelope Ashdowne. So I did my best, and that seemed to be good enough. From what I could tell, they liked having an “expert” on board, even if they didn’t actually listen to me very often. But then one day, Hayden was in the meeting before I arrived, chatting to “Oliver” about the stock market and complimenting “Penelope” on her outfit. After all these weeks, I was still calling them by titles; Hayden had said it was important I was respectful. That didn’t seem to apply to him, though. He ran a hand over his sleek hair, as though checking it still hid his neural implant. “Oh, Merav, didn’t you get my memo? I really need you on that rush job. I’ll take this from here.” “But—” I bit my tongue quickly. Hayden was my supervisor and he was within his rights to do this. Outside the room, I checked my work datapad. I hadn’t missed any messages.   “Oh, this doesn’t look like a security breach to me. Seems like an internal error.” Staying quiet, I carefully roll chromosome 19 back up while I think through my options. There’s no way an audit would incriminate me; my logs are streaming as they should. What is Hayden playing at? “Have you checked on the zygotes in meatspace?” I ask finally. “Some kind of lab mishap. Terrible, isn’t it?” So that was why the other zygotes were “unavailable,” with this one only missed because I’d been working on it. My heart thunders in my chest. “That’s going to suck for whoever made that mistake. What’s worse, do you think, the docked pay or having to apologize in person to the parents?” “Tough one. Sure is a shame for that person.” “Still, one zygote is better than none.” “Fuck me, you’re actually trying to fix it,” he says. It takes me a second to notice he’s swapped to socmed comms, the one that’s supposed to be the most secure on the market. No logging options at all. “No, I am fixing it. It’s my job.” Frantically, I switch to loudspeaker mode, and my datapad to record ambient sound. It’ll catch all the lab noises as well, but it’s the best I can do. The red light blinks at me; I allow myself to exhale and return to the chromosome I was working on. Instead of replying, Hayden changes tack. “You have a long-term girlfriend, don’t you?” “Two, actually.” In ordinary circumstances, I’d enjoy flustering Hayden with that. It’s not a secret and we encounter plenty of polyamorous folk in our line of work, but I’m completely unsurprised that he hasn’t paid attention. But I’m too stressed and wary to enjoy the moment. “I, ah, huh.” He falters for a second; I hear skepticism that I, of all people, could possibly have not just one but two lovers. But he’s clearly a man on a mission and plunges on. “Ever wanted a baby of your own? The… three of you?” I finish up the short arm of chromosome 2; no colon cancer on my watch. “We might adopt one day, if we can afford it.” “What if you could, though? Have a biological child, I mean. You’d want to?” “I don’t want things I can’t have. Waste of time.” I borrow Kris’s words for this lie, but it’s hard to imagine a person I’m less interested in having this discussion with than Hayden. He does this fake laugh, short and barking. “Lots of other things to spend that money on anyway, right?” “Sure, if you had it.” Just a couple more silent mutations and I can move on to cleaning up the epigenetic layer. Time to work out the end game. “What’s this about, Hayden?” “What if I told you there was better money in just… stopping now, if you know what I’m saying?” I recalibrate the scalpel and begin clearing the methylation around the DNA; there’s way too much, because of course—Hayden fouled up everything he could. “No, I don’t know what you’re saying.” “Jesus, are you stupid, or are you being deliberately obtuse?” I take my time replying. I’m working, after all, and this part is fiddly. “You’re going to have to explain yourself either way.” He only hesitates for a moment. “I know some powerful people. People who have an interest in seeing Blake and Ashdowne suffer.” “They’re last names now? You were such pals.” Methylation is at regulation levels now. Next, I sculpt the histones to the shape that centuries of research has determined to be ideal. Working quickly, I correct the errors to the surrounding proteins. A perfect zygote. “You know what your problem is, Merav? You have no idea how to play the game. You think hard work is rewarded. It isn’t. You have to be daring. Take a risk. Not as though the modded are ever going to give us a hand up, right?”   That first meeting. “You’ve got one of those implants, I see,” Ashdowne said, eyeing the side of my head, where my undercut showed off the neural implant. Like my early adopter parents, I was proud of my body hacks and what they could do. No gen mods in the world can tune you into tech like an implant can. Wearables? VR headsets? Ha. Blake dragged me back to reality. “They’re illegal if you’ve been modded, aren’t they?” “Yes. Unfair advantage to have both, right?” I struggled to keep the sarcasm from my voice. A thousand years on my salary, and, by inference, my parents’, wouldn’t be enough to pay for mods. I might like my implant, but I didn’t like being treated like dirt for having it. Hayden was all polite formality. “Merav’s implant allows her to interface directly with our machinery. We couldn’t do what we do without our ‘planted staff.” Hayden was quite willing to keep his implant covered to keep the clients happy, and he was pretty enough to get away with it. “Ah.” His expression didn’t change, but the sneer was evident anyway. “We just bought that little company that makes this brand, remember, dear?” Ashdowne raised an eyebrow at her husband. “Whatever it takes to get the best.” “That’s right!” Hayden said. “You get what you pay for in this industry. It’s a cliché, but it’s true. If you’ll come this way? You haven’t seen the clinic yet.” And then they were gone, leaving only the scent of cologne and perfume.   They’d deserve it. They would. They care as little for me as a person. For a terrible, shameful second, I’m tempted. I imagine it; going off the grid, doing illegal mods for the rest of my life. Holding a baby, my baby, our baby, in my arms. I zoom out and look at the zygote in its entirety. Regardless of how horrid this baby’s parents are and my dead-end job that undervalues me and underpays me, after I’m done, doctors and nurses will make every attempt to give this tiny clump of cells the chance to become a person. And these days, they tend to get it right, especially with a proven surrogate. The mutations that are left won’t kill this child, only make their later life a misery of radiotherapy and chemo. Teach the parents empathy? I don’t think so. In an instant, it’s clear what I need to do. “You’re right, they want us right where we are.” He chuckles with relief. “I knew you’d come around.” “But I’m pretty sure assaulting their offspring isn’t going to change that.” I terminate the call with Hayden and send everything to head office; the logs of my work on the zygote, all of today’s communication between the two of us. Everything. Highest level alert, coded “suspected bioterrorism”; that should take care of it. They’ll deal with him better than I can. “Time check,” I command the interface. “Five minutes, twelve point four seconds.” It’s enough time. Carefully, making sure not to introduce any last-minute errors, I unwind one 3p25 and fly up to OXTR. Just a couple of small changes are enough; a haplotype here, a couple of extra copies of an allele there, and I’m done and zipping the chromosome back up. It’s a tiny change; there’s so much beyond one gene at play here. Goodness only knows what kind of methylation, and socialization for that matter, lies ahead for this kid. But the way I see it, a little extra empathy never hurt anybody.   END     “Best for Baby” is copyright Rivqa Rafael 2019. “Aubade: King Under the Mountain” is copyright Tristan Beiter 2019.

In late 2016 MK Ben Ari publicly revealed her decision to give birth to a child on her own, with the assistance of a friend, and thus exposed Israeli society to the concept of modern, single-parent parenthood. In a relatively conservative country, this was a courageous act that was followed by very emotional responses from all parts of Israeli society. Ben Ari's work in the Knesset is focused on the cost of living, educational issues and gay rights. She's quoted in an article as saying: “I believe in the two states solution, but it's not why I'm in the Knesset. I'm here for social issues.”

Today I have the pleasure of chatting with the team from Peepso: the founder, Merav, Eric the project designer, and Matt the lead developer. I'm going to be completely transparent and tell you I was SUPER thrilled to talk to Merav not only because she's awesome (as is Peepso), but because it was great to talk to a woman who has founded a software company and is doing it well ( of course Eric & Matt are awesome too :-). Next time I'll have to interview them in person, since they're in Indonesia!) Merav, Eric, and Matt worked together on Jomsocial over the years so the transition to working together on Peepso.  Merav had been involved with Joomla since around the time it started. Right after Merav discovered Joomla, she bought the domain name iJoomla.com where she has been creating extensions for Joomla ever since. Eric originally got a BA in English in college, then worked his way up in IT. He then started working for Jompsocial where he became project manager. Matt used to be a freelance developer for years, then he got involved with Joomla during the first few months it came out. He then met the owner of Jumpsocial and began working there, where he met Merav. When Merav saw how well Eric and Matt worked together she knew that the three of them would make a great team on Peepso. Peepso allows people who use word press to have their social media inside their own site. So instead of sending people to your Facebook to connect with you there, they can connect with you on your website. Questions I Asked:  What is Peepso? What made Merav decide to launch Peepso? Why did Merav choose to use the "free-mium" pricing model instead of a full fledged suite? What challenges did Merav face when creating her business? What has been the response in the WordPress community? What advice would Merav, Matt and Eric give to someone who wants to have their premium developed?   Things You'll Learn: Why it's important to keep people on your site to connect with you instead of sending them to other sites. How Merav overcame working with a community who expects most products to be free. The many features of Peepso. How different companies have been able to use Peepso. The value of community sites opposed to Facebook groups.
