As promised all without deceiving, The sun turned up in early afternoon... An oblique stripes of saffron, I can't help believing, Slide down tenderly, Touching a curtain soon... It covered with hot ochre The neighboring woods and houses, My bed, my pillows and my hair and cheeks. The sun goes up and up, it never drowses On summer days and endless summer weeks... Am I still dreaming or it's my reality - Sweet amber honey August and its bright temptation? Mortality turned into sudden tiny immortality - Almost unnoticed, but well-known transfiguration... You walked in a crowd, apart and in pairs, Suddenly someone remembered that today sixth of august old Transfiguration. Ordinarily light without flame Comes on this day from Tabor, And autumn, clear as a sign, It draws the eyes to itself. And you went through the petty, beggarly, Naked, quivering alder In the ginger-red cemetery forest, Burning like a printed gingerbread. With its hushed peaks Neighboring the sky is important And the voices of cocks Called to each other for a long time. In the forest as a government surveyor There was death among the churchyard, Looking into the face of my dead, To dig a hole in my height. Was physically felt by everyone A calm voice nearby. That former voice is my visionary It sounded untouched by decay: "Farewell, transfiguration azure And the gold of the second Savior Soften with the last caress of a woman I am the bitterness of the fateful hour. Farewell, years of timelessness, Farewell, abyss of humiliation A challenging woman! I am your battlefield. Farewell, spread wingspan, Flight of free perseverance, And the image of the world, revealed in the word, And creativity, and wonderworking.

The median life expectancy for a man living in the United States is roughly 80 years. That works out to 960 months, 4,160 weeks, or about 29,000 days. Rick is sneaking up on 70 years old, which means, on average, he's got about 10 years – or 520 weeks – left. Putting the time we have left into simple numbers can be both a bit daunting and remarkably clarifying. When you're in the middle of them, the days can blur together. But the truth is that our time's limited, and how we use it is up to us. On today's episode of Being Well, Dr. Rick and Forrest Hanson talk about what's helped them come to terms with mortality, the reality of our limited time, and how we can use that knowledge to refine our focus and live a more fulfilling life.Watch the Episode: Prefer watching video?

Do you have a plan for when you die? Do you have a plan for when your loved ones die? In 2001, Michelle Mathai was just two years into her first foreign service post as vice consul in Auckland, NZ. She and her parents were on a farewell trip around the island in anticipation of Michelle's imminent departure for a new post in El Salvador. In the blink of an eye, the trip turned tragic when their car, with her dad at the wheel and her mom in the back seat, careened off the road and into the mercilessly icy current of a glacial river. As water rushed in, Michelle was able to kick out the windshield to escape the car, but her desperate attempts to save her parents were unsuccessful. In this episode, Michelle shares how the complete lack of preparation for her parents' deaths impacted her and her brother. She shares how painful lessons learned from that experience helped her create a very different ending for her brother when he died in 2017 after almost a 20-year battle with brain cancer. And she shares how to have the tough end-of-life conversations with our loved ones NOW--before end-of-life issues become a reality--and what exactly needs to be covered. Highlights From the Conversation The hardships that failure to have an end-of-life plan causes when a loved one dies, and the benefits of having a plan How the grieving process is impacted by lack of end-of-life plans How to create end-of-life plans with your loved ones What an end-of-life plan contains The value of simplifying your life materially so that there's not so much stuff for loved ones to sort through when you die. How beauty can be found in the “tough stuff” Why Michelle has no tolerance for “all the bullshit” anymore, and why you shouldn't either Making It Matter In YOUR Life Dying well starts now. It starts with acknowledging the inevitability of our death, allowing that awareness to keep us present in THIS moment, and taking concrete steps today to plan for our ultimate demise. It requires making our Death part of our Life, here and now. It's a formidable and beastly tension to tangle with, but tangle with it we must if we are to depart this life with grace and peace. As I've discovered in the three-plus years that I've been actively cultivating this Mortality Mindset, if we persist in tangling with this tension, it becomes a powerful catalyst for giving the things that matter most the attention they deserve NOW and living the life we were uniquely made to live. Paradoxically, it becomes a friend and ally rather than a detestable and repugnant enemy to be avoided at all costs. As my then-10-year-old son, Macgray, said one night at the dinner table, much to our surprise and amazement, "Death brings meaning to life." When we estrange ourselves from our Mortality, we estrange ourselves from our very Life. And so we conclude where we began: Do you have a plan for when you die? Do you have a plan for when your loved ones die? If not, what's just one thing you're willing and able to do today to begin assembling a plan? Let Me Know! What stuck with YOU from this episode? Message me on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn @AndrewPettyCoach, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to tune in to the next episode--a sort of mirror image of this episode. Terminal brain cancer warrior, Pam Blackburn, will offer her final word from the sacred space she now inhabits between life and death.

In part two of this interview with Dr. Robert Malone, he describes a recent study conducted in the Netherlands that shows a pattern of increased all-cause mortality deaths one week after an increased push in vaccination rates. He links this study to the refusal of American medicine to consider all-cause mortality rates despite the insurance industry revealing an increase of 40 percent in the population aged 18–64 in the second half of 2021. During our discussion, Dr. Malone explains how the financial incentives offered by the federal government to hospitals, paying them for every death they classified as “from COVID,” irrevocably biased U.S. COVID data, which is being used to guide public policy. ⭕️ Sign up for our NEWSLETTER and stay in touch

Description: COVID sucks, no doubt about it. Vaccination has been a game changer for how we live through the pandemic, but we still need therapeutics for those breakthrough cases and the unvaccinated amongst us. Paxlovid is a novel anti-viral agent that showed promise in an initial industry-sponsored trial among unvaccinated patients with the delta strain. But does it hold up in the real world where vaccination is common, and omicron has pushed delta to the wayside? Dr. Jarvis reviews the initial RCT and a recent Israeli observational trial where more than 75% of patients were vaccinated. He also covers the contraindications for its use. Finally, he'll no doubt massacre the almost impossible-to pronounce generic names for the drugs in Paxlovid. Citations. 1. Najjar-Debbiny R, Gronich N, Weber G, et al.

This week we do a deep-dive into the latest avian flu outbreak with Dr. Jennifer Ramsey, the state wildlife veterinarian for Montana. The latest outbreak was notable for its severity and the breadth of species it reached -- from waterfowl to raptors to turkeys. Dr. Ramsay said they would sometimes even find an entire nest, adults and fledglings, that had succumbed to the virus.

Forrest Gump famously said "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get." True. And, I've been thinking about how life is like a tube of toothpaste. That full tube of toothpaste feels endless and abundant. It's only when you come to the end of the tube do you treat those few remaining drops as if they are a precious commodity - not to be wasted. In this episode of the precarious podcast I encourage us to reflect on our relationship with time. How do we measure it? How much time makes a long life? Is that even the question to be asking? To quote Seneca, the Roman Philosopher, "Life is not short...it is long if we know how to use it." Kind of like how we use a tube of toothpaste.

Joining Chris today is Dr. Vadim Gladyshev, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Director of Redox Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and a member of the National Academy of Sciences. The Gladyshev lab studies redox biology and trace elements as they relate to cancer, reproduction, and aging. Today, Dr. Gladyshev shares with us how his research group investigates the aging process and how aging is quantified in academic research. Dr. Gladyshev begins by discussing how he got involved in the longevity sector. He goes on to explain that aging has not been clearly defined, and how many researchers define aging differently. He contends that aging should be studied as opposed to age-related diseases because age-related diseases are influenced by other factors aside from aging. The interview concludes with the importance of conferences that address the science of longevity and how these events connect bright minds to tackle unsolved problems in the field. Episode Highlights: How Dr. Gladyshev got involved in aging The relationship between selenium and longevity How longevity is studied in the Gladyshev lab What is rejuvenation? The importance of measuring the aging process using clocks Using experimental and computational methods to alter clocks How the biotech industry quantifies aging Targeting aging and not age-related diseases The importance of conferences targeting longevity Quotes: “In general we try to address fundamental questions in the biology of aging — really trying to understand, ‘What is aging? How can we fundamentally adjust lifespan or target aging?' … And we try to identify new areas of potential growth for the field.” “We work on cross-species analysis to understand how the lifespan is shaped over evolutionary timescales and how we can utilize what we learn from evolution in targeting aging and lifespan.” “Many changes can be measured as an organism moves from young to old. So this might be useful for measuring the progress of normal aging. But when you're intervening in aging, you don't want to reverse all of those changes, because some of those changes are evidence of the body's protective responses in action.” “Just to play devil's advocate for a second: why would you want to target aging if you still got sick and died at the same rate?” “Mortality is an integrative feature of not just the aging process, but interaction with the environment.” Links: Email questions, comments, and feedback to email@example.com Translating Aging on Twitter:https://twitter.com/BioAgePodcast ( @bioagepodcast) BIOAGE Labs Websitehttps://bioagelabs.com/ ( BIOAGELabs.com) BIOAGE Labs Twitterhttps://twitter.com/bioagelabs?lang=en ( @bioagelabs) BIOAGE Labshttps://www.linkedin.com/company/bioage-labs/ ( LinkedIn) https://www.linkedin.com/in/vadim-gladyshev-82268b153/ (Dr. Vadim's Linkedin) https://gladyshevlab.bwh.harvard.edu/ (Gladyshev lab Website) https://mobile.twitter.com/gladyshev_lab (Gladyshev lab Twitter)

Physical activity is critical to preventing and treating diabetes and reduces cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality. Although moderate-to-high intensity aerobic exercise of any type is likely beneficial, cycling is particularly attractive because it is a low-impact exercise (e.g. easier on the joints) and can potentially be used as a transportation method.

Contributor: Aaron Lessen, MD Educational Pearls: A recent study evaluated the association between the degree of fever and mortality rate in patients presenting to a set of Emergency Departments in Israel Febrile patients with a temperature > 38.0 C were recorded and these patients were compared against local death records to determine the all-cause 30-day mortality rate 8.1% of patients evaluated in the ED were determined to be febrile 30-day mortality for all febrile patients was around 12% Patients with fever >40 C have a mortality rate approaching 24% Patients febrile to >40 C had increased mortality, ICU admissions, and AKIs compared to those with lesser degrees of fever Those with a body temperature of between 39.2-39.5 C had the lowest mortality rates which may indicate the protective role of fever and warrants further research References Marcusohn E, Gibory I, Miller A, Lipsky AM, Neuberger A, Epstein D.

The Bible is filled with accounts of believers who illustrate the faith of the distraught father, “Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24). It is perplexing that believers can sometimes be confident and yet not confident at the same time. We might call this a confused confidence. This describes Job in the text before us, which we will consider under the following headings: 1. Job Confident: Lord, I Believe! (13:6–28) A. A Confident Rebuke (13:6–12) B. A Confident Resolve (13:13–19) C. A Confident Request (13:20–28) 2. Job not so Confident: Lord, Help My Unbelief (14:1–22) A. Disturbed by Depravity (14:1–6) B. Discouraged by Mortality (14:7–12) C. Delighted by Immortality (14:13–17) D. Depressed by Futility (14:18–22)
Diane Hullet had been an English teacher, but once her children launched she decided to become certified by The Conscious Dying Institute as a Sacred Passage Doula and Conscious Dying Educator and Coach. She talks about what a death doula's role is, and why it's so different from the traditional ways we deal with death. It's a profound conversation. Find out more: bestlifebestdeath.com.

This week we delve into the world of cardiovascular surgery when we review a recent paper from the team at Texas Children's Hospital about the BTT shunt. How commonly did shunts have serious complications? Does the location on the aorta matter in regards to shunt complications? What size shunt is associated with the least morbidity or mortality? Why might shunt placement via a thoracotomy be superior to sternotomy. These are amongst the many questions reviewed with the first author of this work, second year cardiology fellow at Primary Children's Hospital, Dr. Andrew Headrick.

Antigone's brother Eteocles fought for Thebes and King Creon. Her other brother, Polyneices, fought against Creon and thus against Thebes. In battle they killed each other. Creon buried Eteocles with full military honor. But regarding Polyneices, has ordered, “No one shall bury him, no one mourn for him, / But his body must lie in the fields, a sweet treasure / For carrion birds to find as they search for food.” His sister, Antigone, won't stand for it. Sophocles' tragedy, “Antigone” was one of the readings as the 2022 Wyoming School of Catholic Thought considered “Mortality and Eternity.” In the play Antigone risks and loses her life over the filial duty of burying the dead. Before we broke up into seminar groups to discuss the play, Prof. Adam Cooper gave us this introduction.

This episode is a short commentary on my recent interview with Dr. Meryl Nass. One of my objectives in that interview was to draw out the contrasts between Dr. Nass' positions, and those of doctors such as Claus Köhnlein, who are similarly sceptical of the broad COVID narrative. In particular I wanted to examine the issues of hydroxychloroquine and its role in the excess mortality figures from the second quarter of 2020.

In a beast of an episode, Charlie welcomes both Daniel Horowitz, journalist and host of The Conservative Review Podcast, and Alex Berenson, former New York Times journalist and professional skeptic, for two critical conversations featuring two of the most courageous and insightful Big Pharma critics to emerge in the past two years, and both of whom have been suspended and kicked off Twitter for their commentary and analysis. Horowitz explains the details surrounding his recent Twitter suspension for making claims that the vaccine has demonstrated, according to the data, a negative efficacy. Horowitz points out the inherent contradictions in the FDA's approved drugs vs. alternative drugs that have been either banned, shunned, or outright prohibited despite many credible claims they are effective. Next up, Charlie welcomes Alex Berenson who recently reached a confidential settlement with Twitter in a well publicized lawsuit that resulted in Berenson's Twitter account being reinstated. What are the implications of his lawsuit for all those accounts which have been banned for "COVID disinformation?" Alex breaks down the specifics of his lawsuit again Twitter, why the judge in the case allowed the case to proceed despite so many others getting thrown out, and how he now plans on attempting to release more documents he gained access to in discovery about Twitter's alleged collusion with the federal government. Charlie and Berenson discuss some of the provable negative side effects from the vaccine including menstruation irregularities, decreased sperm counts, and the troubling and mysterious rise in "all cause mortality" across the Western World.
