Being responsible for your children's education can feel high pressure - from fostering brain development to choosing schools. Today's guest will help you zoom out from the details to help you focus on what's important to you as you incorporate learning in your home. Children's learning is a whole-self activity, and you might be surprised at the simplicity of the things you can do together that help them grow and develop! This week, episode 41 of Poised & Powerful Podcast reassures you that you have what you need to be your child's first teacher! Feeding and caring for young children can do a number on your body - and it can be hard to find that time to take care of yourself. Join me for a restorative practice where we'll release tension in our necks, back, and shoulders. Clear your mind so you'll feel reset and re-energized for yourself and your family.

Amanda uses decision-making analysis (MPA), Alexander Technique, and developmental movement to help you gain self-mastery and optimal performance. In this episode of Poised & Powerful Podcast, Amanda and I discuss the following:How developmental movement, play, and daily activities can help children learn - no elaborate materials needed! How Amanda's perspective as an Alexander Technique trained teacher meshed with the Montessori philosophy when she was hired at a Montessori school. She gives an educator's insight on scaffolding children's learning so they can master skills with confidence, and the emotional and kinesthetic skills that are vital for their development. Amanda compares the independence of her daughter's education with her own schools, which were more authoritarian and grades-focused. Collaborative problem-solving with kids, and how that develops as they get older. We hear from Amanda's daughter about what she values in her education - you can hear her sense of ownership of her learning experience at a young age. We hope this conversation gives you the valuable perspective of the “big picture” of supporting children's learning, and has you thinking about what you value in education, and gets you excited about sharing that with your family.CONNECT WITH AMANDA BLAIR MACDONALD:LinkedInFacebookInstagramWebsiteCONNECT WITH SARAH MAYHAN:Stress Less in Pregnancy Class OnlineSunday night Zoom: Restore on the FloorWork with Sarah! LINKS MENTIONED:Brain-Compatible Dance Education/ Anne Green GilbertEpisode Transcript here

Ari Mittleman talks with me about his book Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Humanity, Heroism, and Hope. This is episode 504 of Teaching Learning Leading K12 an audio podcast. As a native Pennsylvanian deeply involved in the pro-Israel community, the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh deeply affected him. That tragic event spurred Mittleman to write his book, with the hope of it helping to showcase the good in the world that is done for others by those outside their religion, race, or nationality. He works at the nexus of politics, policymaking and the press in Washington, DC. Mittleman has run a public affairs and strategic communications firm, Keystone Strategy + Advocacy, LLC serving internationally known clients that have ranged from heads of state, celebrities, and global business leaders. Prior to that, he served as a senior advisor to a United States senator for eight years. He also earlier had served as a grant writer at a Croatia-based NGO. He is a columnist for The Times of Israel and has contributed articles to USA Today Network, Baltimore Jewish Times, The Morning Call, The Jerusalem Post, Washington Examiner, The Patriot News, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, NorthJersey.com, Modern Diplomacy, and The Jewish Exponent. He earned a BA from The Department of American Studies from The George Washington University, and his MPA from Fels Institute of Government at University of Pennsylvania. Proficient in both modern and biblical Hebrew, he has formally studied the language and traditional Jewish texts since kindergarten and travels regularly to Israel. In total, Mittleman has visited over 40 countries. He is the founding board chairman of St. Bernard Project, a post-Katrina-Rita disaster recovery non-profit that was recognized as a CNN Hero of the Year. A new father, Ari lives in Pikesville, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.  Today we are focused on his book Paths of the Righteous: Stories of Humanity, Heroism, and Hope.

Communication is 7% Words 38% Tone of Voice 55% Body Language   Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner, and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast, sits down with Shelly O'Donovan, CEO of Authentic Influence Group with certifications in Body Language Training and the Big 5 Personalities. In this episode, Shelly reveals commonly overlooked communication practices and advice on how we can get better at conveying our true selves. Tune in to learn secrets used by politicians and other communication experts.   3 KEY POINTS: Communication starts with building rapport. Good communication is being your true self and with open body language. Better communication leads to better outcomes.   EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Shelly went from politics to starting her own business in healthcare, helping companies influence the political arena. She got laid off and became burnt out applying for and working in several jobs before learning about Body Language and being certified. She struggled with communication and picked up bad habits growing up, so she devoted herself to improving later on. Politicians always deliver the message they want to convey quickly and clearly. Introverts tend to close themselves through body language. Try to open up your body language, keep your arms open, and make eye contact. To remember someone's name, associate their name with anything similar or write down bits of information about the person on a piece of paper when they leave the room. For social media, just be yourself and let the world see you, not being worried about perfecting what you post. In practicing your communication skills, start with small steps and with people you're comfortable with. Shelly recommends checking these people out: Vanessa Van Edwards - Behavioral Investigator at Science of People Joe Navarro - Former FBI Agent and Body Language Expert Dale Carnegie - Best-Selling “Author of How to Win Friends and Influence People” among other books   TWEETABLE QUOTES: “Authentic Influence means not trying to be somebody you're not. Just be yourself and let the world see you.” – Shelly O'Donovan “Open your body language more. Open your arms, make eye contact, and be curious about other people. Better communication leads to better outcomes.” – Shelly O'Donovan   CONNECT WITH JASON DUPRAT LinkedIn | Facebook | Instagram | Youtube Email: support@jasonduprat.com   ABOUT THE GUEST Shelly O'Donovan is the CEO of the Authentic Influence Group. She teaches Persuasive Speaking at the Wharton School, of the University of Pennsylvania. She has led vaccine advocacy for GSK, worked as a healthcare lobbyist, and served as a staffer in state government. She has been focused on cultivating authentic influence her entire career, and decoding what makes people tick. Shelly has an MPA from the University of Pennsylvania, a Marketing certification from Wharton School (of UPENN), and a BA in political science.

Valuable Conversations with UCL IIPP

Welcome to Valuable Conversations with the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose. In this episode, MPA alumni Gwen Casazza and Justin Beirold talk to IIPP's fearless leader, Mariana Mazzucato. Like many people at IIPP, Gwen and Justin came to the institute in large part because of Mariana and her ideas. Mariana is one of the most influential economists in the world, and as a result, there are hundreds of podcasts, YouTube videos, interviews, and lectures featuring her. We decided that we would get into the weeds about the substance of her research, but we also wanted to learn more about her as a person. We talked about her childhood in an Italian family in New Jersey and being inspired by her High School history teacher. We discussed the trials and tribulations of the past decade, as she went from being a respected professor to running her own institute and becoming low-key famous (relative to most economists). She tells us about the critical importance of crafting new economic narratives in addition to new policy ideas. And of course, we covered some of the most exciting projects she is working on at the IIPP, including her work with Camden Council, the City of Barcelona, and the (all-women) WHO Council on Economics of Health For All. Guest Bio: Mariana Mazzucato is Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London (UCL), where she is Founding Director of the UCL Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose (IIPP). She is winner of international prizes including the 2020 John von Neumann Award, the 2019 All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values, and the 2018 Leontief Prize for Advancing the Frontiers of Economic Thought. She was named as one of the '3 most important thinkers about innovation' by The New Republic, one of the 50 most creative people in business in 2020 by Fast Company, and one of the 25 leaders shaping the future of capitalism by WIRED. She advises policymakers around the world on innovation-led inclusive and sustainable growth. Her current roles include being Chair of the World Health Organization's Council on the Economics of Health for All and a member of the Scottish Government's Council of Economic Advisors, the South African President's Economic Advisory Council, the OECD Secretary General's Advisory Group on a New Growth Narrative, the UN High Level Advisory Board for Economic and Social Affairs, Argentina's Economic and Social Council, Vinnova's Advisory Panel in Sweden, and Norway's Research Council. Previously, through her role as Special Advisor for the EC Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation (2017-2019), she authored the high-impact report on Mission-Oriented Research & Innovation in the European Union, turning “missions” into a crucial new instrument in the European Commission's Horizon innovation programme.

Part 2 of 2 – Journey to Self-Care: Overcoming Boundaries to Becoming Self-Aware Guest: Jasmyne Nelson This week join me for part two of a two-part series on the journey to self-care. In part two, Jasmyne Nelson, a licensed master's prepared social worker, and I have a rich discussion about setting boundaries and how setting those boundaries helps us to become more self-aware. A lack of boundaries can affect our relationships in a very negative way and affect how we function in the world around us. As Jasmyne says, “be curious about yourself”. Ask those questions while in the moment, “why do I feel this way”.

This week: We learned something interesting about Netflix, Cross-promotions work but you might be doing them wrong, Anchor continues to be the top podcast host by episode share, and the FTC sues a data broker. All we know about Netflix's ad plans so far Shreya: Once again we bring you an article that doesn't feature the world “podcast”, but could have big implications for the industry. Last Friday Kelsey Sutton published a brief roundup of all the news about Netflix that had dropped during the week. The world learned about polarizing new ad-supported tier, charging between $7 to $9 a month. We also learned they're targeting 15 and 30 second spots for preroll and midroll ads.  “The flurry of reports helps provide a better picture of how Netflix is strategizing the rollout of its ad-supported tier after eschewing Madison Avenue for years. There are still many unknowns, including what kind of metrics the service will provide to measure ad effectiveness. Even without all the details, media buyers are buzzing with anticipation.”  Podcasters and advertising folk alike should take note of how much Netflix is paying per thousand impressions. According to Sutton the streamer is paying $65 CPM, with expectations of that going up to $80 in future.  With those rates in mind for the biggest streaming platform, average podcast CPM is fair to underpriced in comparison.  Do Cross-Promos Work? Hell Yes, But You Are Likely Doing Them Wrong…And We Can Fix That Manuela: On Monday Eric Nuzum published an issue of The Audio Insurgent that aims to introduce podcasters to a vital lesson learned while conducting research for terrestrial radio nearly two decades ago.  Nuzum is of the opinion that on-air and in-episode content promotion is frequently misunderstood and often poorly executed. This and the next two issues of Audio Insurgent are dedicated to covering the three Rs of program promotion: Reduction, Repetition, and Real Content.  In 2004 Nuzum conducted a study for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting titled ON-air Program Promotions Insight Study, a study of cross-promotion in the radio industry so helpful he continued to get messages asking where to find the study long after the original webpage hosting it had decayed.  For this newsletter series he has done some light editing and uploaded the entirety of the 18 year-old study to Google Drive for preservation.  “Yet despite its age, it can still be very effective and useful to all audio professionals today. But the whole project boils down to one simple sentence: A well-constructed message, delivered to the right listeners often enough for them to recognize it, can increase listening.” His issue on Reduction stresses the importance of stripping fat from a promotion and ensuring it isn't airing in a block of multiple other promotions that could distract from the message. An example given from when the promo study was first conducted is Nuzum playing a promo for A Prairie Home Companion. The promo rapid-fire announced the town, state, college auditorium in said town the performance would take place at. Following that, three musical acts and the name of the famous News from Lake Wobegon segment.  “Immediately after playing it, I would ask those in the room to name a single artist or location mentioned in that promo. On a rare occasion, someone could remember “Iowa”--but most times, no one could remember anything. And these people were (supposedly) paying attention.” Top Podcast Hosting Companies by Episode Share (August 2022) Shreya: Last Thursday Livewire Labs updated their substantial snapshot of the industry via episode share.     “One of the ways to measure the health of the current podcast ecosystem is to measure the number of new episodes published in a given period. We look at every single new podcast episode published (about 1.6 million in August 2022, up 5.4% from last month) and identify which podcast hosting company it belongs to.” One of the first things that jumps out about both the list of hosting companies by new episode share and the ranking of hosts by new episodes published in August is the gulf between first and second place. In a ranked list of 234 podcast hosting services Anchor dominates first place at 22.9% of new episodes published. Buzzsprout showed gains in solidifying a strong second place at 9%.  Livewire's data pairs nicely with the Podnews podcast hosting change tracker, which observes RSS feed hosting changes across the system's sample size of over 73,000 podcasts. Over the past week 211 podcasts changed from one hosting service to another, 26 which moved from various other services to Anchor. Pundits are fond of depicting Anchor as a dumping ground for single episode or dead podcasts due to their free tier, but they clearly are attracting a lot of new creators.  A sociologist on what advertisers should know when they use health data And:  FTC picks fight with data broker Manuela: Over the past week Ryan Barwick of Marketing Brew has published two closely-related articles covering the use of data collected in a healthcare environment for advertising.  First, yesterday's article features an interview with Mary F. E. Ebeling, an associate professor of sociology at Drexel University and recently-published author of a book on the effects of collected data on individuals' lives. Ebeling provides an anecdote of how a child she lost to miscarriage in the real world continued to live a false life through parenting-related marketing emails.  “Though it's near impossible to audit a digital ad—how, why, or where it was served—Ebeling connects the experience to her research in the healthcare industry, where patients rarely know they're feeding “massive databases maintained by healthcare providers and public and private insurers, or payers—often called data ‘lakes' and ‘oceans.'” With Ebeling's account in mind, we look back to last Friday when Barwick covered a much-publicized lawsuit filed by the Federal Trade Commission.  “On Monday, the agency brought a lawsuit against Kochava, a data broker, for allegedly collecting and selling location data “that can be used to trace the movements of individuals to and from sensitive locations” like reproductive-health clinics and places of worship.””  The suit comes several weeks after a preemptive lawsuit from Kochava towards the FTC. Barwick details the two businesses within Kochava in its data marketplace and measurement service. Kochava argues the user is forewarned when they initially agree to share their location data with the third-party apps they purchase the data from. The FTC, clearly, disagrees.      “By the end of the week, many were wondering: Why Kochava? And though we don't know the answer yet, the FTC's lawsuit could put the entire location data collection industry under the microscope.” Quick Hits: Recommended Weekend Reading Shreya: Finally, it's time for our semi-regular roundup of articles we're calling Quick Hits. These are articles that didn't quite make the cut for today's episode, but are still worth including in your weekend reading. This week:  The Ambies, the flagship award program of The Podcast Academy, designed to celebrate excellence in podcasting in the same way the MPA celebrates film with the Oscars, is now taking nominations. In addition, they've also announced a membership program sponsored by Spotify to enable independent creators to submit.  WQXR hires a podcasting chief by Laura Holt. Music remains one of the most untapped categories in podcasting. WQXR is a great example of a station that produces its own content and has access to a number of resources for original content, which is the key to making music podcasting work in a world where licensing music under copyright is still financially not viable in podcasting.

As the summer winds down, its time to go back to school. This month, we will examine America's school system. In recent years, COVID-19, school shootings, affirmation of LGBTQ students, institutional racism, critical race theory, teacher burnout, and parent's rights have transformed America's schools into cultural battlegrounds. As a result, students, teachers, and administrators are experiencing poor mental health outcomes, secondary traumatic stress, and burnout. In this episode, we will discuss why trauma-informed education is imperative in schools as we navigate the impact of stress and trauma on students, teachers, and the community. As the Educational Consultant for PACEs Connection, Lara brings her deep understanding of the importance of schools as community drivers for change. Lara is an experienced educator and consultant who speaks nationally on implementing trauma-informed practices in schools and building holistic, trauma-responsive systems. Lara brings over two decades of experience at the local, state, and national levels, including developing programs for integrating trauma-informed practices into community schools in Los Angeles. She worked for the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction as the state homeless coordinator and practiced her first love, teaching 'at-risk' youth. Lara has a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MPA from The Evergreen State College. As an example of her understanding of the micro and the macro, Lara's experience ranges from supporting individual teachers to designing a trauma-informed schools pilot implemented in 20 schools across the country. Lara has worked both as a teacher and administrator putting the science of building resilience into practice. For Lara, who is a trauma survivor and was herself an 'at-risk' youth, this work is deeply personal. She understands what schools can and should look like to benefit ALL children. As the mother of two adopted sons, she understands the effects of developmental trauma and what it takes to overcome it. Born in the Midwest, she lived for over a decade in the Pacific Northwest, and is now a transplant to Southern California, where she lives with her husband and two boys. The beach is her happy place.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: EAs interested in US policy: Consider applying for the Presidential Management Fellowship, published by Locke USA on August 23, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. This post summarizes why and how to apply to the Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF), a prestigious two-year program that allows recent graduate degree recipients to get jobs in the US federal government. It's widely considered one of the best pathways into policy. Applications are open annually in mid-September. Hundreds of people go through the PMF each year, including many with STEM backgrounds, despite the historically greater numbers of fellows with traditional policy degrees. If you are interested in applying to the PMF — including if you are still unsure or plan to apply in future years — we strongly encourage you to fill in this form so that we can help connect you with others who have gone through the program. Summary: Why you should strongly consider PMF The Presidential Management Fellowship (PMF) program is a prestigious, two-year fellowship that places graduate degree holders in US executive branch agencies. Fellows in the program are typically referred to as “PMFs”. Core features of the program include: PMFs receive good full-time salaries with civil servant-equivalent benefits and are generally promoted each year during the program. PMFs can non-competitively convert to permanent civil service positions after their two years. This is a big deal, as it presents a fast track to highly competitive government jobs and an easy way for agencies to hire a pre-vetted candidate. PMFs can get sponsored for a security clearance. PMFs typically get to rotate to at least one other agency for 3-6 months, which allows them to gain exposure to and connections within multiple parts of the federal government. PMFs receive mentorship and training from advisors outside their chain of command due to the PMF program's prestige and deep network. PMFs are respected and noticed. People in the policy community expect PMFs to be inquisitive, rising leaders and are happy to answer their emails, take calls, or get coffee. You can do a wide range of jobs as a PMF. Roles that are regularly advertised on the PMF jobs platform include Policy Analyst, Economist, General Engineer, HR Specialist, Management and Program Analyst, IT Specialist, Operations Research Analyst, International Relations Specialist, and many more. It's therefore a good potential pathway for people with both STEM and non-STEM degrees and with a wide range of interests, including research, operations, and tech development. Who is eligible? The application cycle begins each fall, recently in mid-September. You are eligible to apply if: You have completed an advanced degree (MS, MA, JD, LLM, PhD, MPA, MPH, MBA, etc.) at an accredited institution (international degrees are subject to review) within the two years prior to the application's opening date (e.g. you can apply in September 2022 so long as you graduated after September 2020); or You will complete your advanced degree by August 31 of the year following the application's opening date (e.g. you can apply in September 2022 if you graduate in or before August 2023). There is no cap on the number of times you may apply, as long as you meet the eligibility requirements. For example, if you complete an MS and later complete a PhD, you could conceivably apply six times – three for each separate graduate degree. In recent years, there has not been a requirement to travel for any components of the application. This is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, though is subject to the recruitment planning of the PMF Office. While you do not strictly need to be a US citizen to apply, you realistically need to be at least a US permanent resident (i.e. have a green card) to become a PMF. In order to...

Willy welcomes Charles Rivkin. He is the Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association (MPA). He leads the MPA's global mission to advance and support the film, television, and streaming content industry. The MPA's members currently include Disney, Netflix, Paramount, Sony, Universal, and Warner Bros. Drawing on almost 30 years of experience as a media executive and a leading U.S. diplomat, he advocates for policies that drive investment in film and television production, protect creative content, and open markets. He champions the economic and cultural power of film and television to communities around the world. The episode begins with Charles talking about his father's career as a US ambassador to Luxembourg and Senegal and his godfather, a US ambassador to France. Charles believes that public service is the highest calling, and the influence of his relatives encouraged him to serve in the State for 18 years. With a deep love for singing, Charles never thought of doing it professionally, but the hobby gave him a chance to travel around the world. “I love being surrounded by creative people, and that's one of the reasons I pursued a career in the entertainment industry,” he says. He decided to get an MBA because he was always fascinated by his grandfather's clothing business. “When you give somebody employment, you change their lives,” he says. He loves the idea of being a CEO, contributing to his community, and making a difference on the international stage. With his background in economics, he combined it with his love for entertainment. He thinks that media is an enormous source of power and cultural exchange and can be a source of good when used properly. The MPA is already 100 years old and represents the six largest companies in the world. He talks about working with Jim Henson and selling his company, his desire to play in a “creative world”, and how they preserved his legacy by monetizing his assets. He got involved in politics in 2003 as Barack Obama's US Ambassador to France, having the chance to know him before his presidency. He shares about doing film showings in the residence as he thought that films were a unionizing force and a reflection of American society. He challenged his French counterparts to create movies about sensitive topics and uses the medium to break stereotypes. Charles shares his experience being the first ambassador to jump out of an airplane with the US Army Golden Knights on the 60th anniversary of D-Day, overcoming his fear of heights. Referencing Top Gun, he has flown on an F-18 with a passionate and talented naval pilot. The first thing he did as he moved into the MPA was to bring Netflix on board. He clarifies that the MPA is not just about film but also includes TV and streaming. With the billions of dollars that Amazon and Apple spend on creating potentially award-winning content, he believes these giants will join the association soon. As gaming is also catching up, MPA is working together with Apple and Amazon to fight piracy, the one commonality they can agree on, and make entertainment a diverse and flexible force. “The walls are blurring,” he says. Doing trade deals with USMCA in Canada also enforces intellectual property protection online and brings content to markets that were unreachable in the past. He has a positive outlook towards reopening theaters, as Top Gun Maverick raked in a billion at the box office, and other smaller productions like Everything Everywhere All At Once made millions as well. “Moviegoing begets moviegoing. There's a communal aspect that can never be replaced,” he says. The US government is also helping to reignite the movie industry to help blue-collar workers like electricians, plumbers, cashiers, and other employees.

This week, please join author Philipp Lurz and Editorialist Daniel Burkhoff as they discuss the article "Characteristics of Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction Across the Range of Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction" and the editorial "HF?EF: The Mysterious Relationship Between Heart Failure and Ejection Fraction Continues." Dr. Carolyn Lam: Welcome to Circulation on the Run, your weekly podcast summary and backstage pass to the journal and its editors. We're your co-host. I'm Dr. Carolyn Lam, Associate Editor from the National Heart Center and Duke National University of Singapore. Dr. Greg Hundley: And I'm Dr. Greg Hundley, Associate Editor, Director of the Pauley Heart Center at VCU Health in Richmond, Virginia. Dr. Carolyn Lam: I just cannot wait to tell you about today's feature discussion, Greg. It's about heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and characteristics in the range of that ejection fraction that's above 50%. So, okay. I know, I know. It's like, "Oh my gosh. Wow. How much are we going to be talking about this ejection fraction thing?" But I'm telling you, everybody has to listen to this. It's really a big stride forward in our understanding of these patients with heart failure and a higher ejection fraction. Plus it includes one of my mentors from Mayo Clinic days, and I just can't wait for everyone to hear this. But before we go there, we've got really, really cool original papers in today's issue too. Would you like to start first? Dr. Greg Hundley: You bet Carolyn, and I can't wait for that feature discussion, especially this is a real area of your expertise. So listeners, hold on for that feature discussion. Well, my first paper, Carolyn, really pertains to physical activity. And Carolyn, the study is led by Dr. Don Hoon Lee from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. And it evaluated a total of 116,000 adults from two large prospective US cohorts, the Nurse's Health Study and the Health Professional's Follow up Study that took place from 1988 to 2018. And they were examining self-reported leisure time physical activity and assessed the association between long term leisure time physical activity intensity and all cause and cause specific mortality. Dr. Greg Hundley: Now Carolyn, two types of physical activity were assessed. First, moderate physical activity and we're going to abbreviate that as MPA and that was 150 to 300 minutes per week, which is really recommended. Or second, vigorous physical activity for which it's really recommended that one performs 75 to 150 minutes per week. Now, Carolyn, as you know, some individuals accomplish both of these in their routine, some neither, some one or the other. And so it really remains unclear whether higher levels of long term vigorous or moderate are independently or perhaps jointly associated with lower mortality. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Oh, that's so interesting, Greg. Quick, quick, quick, tell us the results. Dr. Greg Hundley: Right Carolyn. So the nearly maximum association with lower mortality overall was achieved by performing approximately 150 to 300 minutes per week of long term leisure time vigorous physical activity or 300 to 600 minutes per week of long term leisure time moderate physical activity or an equivalent combination of both, so mixing those minutes. Also Carolyn, very interestingly, higher levels, suppose you go beyond those limits of either long term leisure time vigorous physical activity of more than 300 minutes per week or moderate physical activity of more than 600 minutes per week did not show clearly further lower all cause cardiovascular disease or non-cardiovascular disease mortality and nor did they show harm. So if you went above those thresholds, you really didn't experience greater harm. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Thanks, Greg. You know I'm going to be trying to apply that. That's so cool. All right. Well the next paper refers to the Cabana Trial, which I'll remind you is a trial in which catheter ablation did not significantly reduce the primary endpoint of death, disabling stroke, serious bleeding or cardiac arrest compared to drug therapy by intention to treat, but did improve quality of life and freedom from atrial fibrillation recurrence. In Cabana, the heart failure subgroup, ablation appeared to improve both survival and quality of life. The current paper led by Dr. Mark and colleagues from Duke Clinical Research Institute looked at the cost effectiveness of this ablation versus angio-rhythmic drug therapy in atrial fibrillation and which was a pre-specified Cabana secondary endpoint. Dr. Greg Hundley: Ah, Carolyn. So what did they find? Dr. Carolyn Lam: Well in this trial based economic evaluation, catheter ablation was estimated to cost $57,893 per QALY or Quality Adjusted Life Year gained compared to drug therapy in the overall cohort. And this was primarily driven by improvement in quality of life. It also cost $54,135 per QALY gained in the heart failure subgroup, driven by both gains in quality of life and survival. In summary, catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation was found to be economically attractive compared to drug therapy in the Cabana trial overall at present benchmarks of healthcare value in the US and based on projected incremental qualities, but not live years alone. Dr. Greg Hundley: Very nice Carolyn. Well, my next paper comes to us from the world of Preclinical Science and it's corresponding author is Dr. Swapnil Sonkusare from University of Virginia School of Medicine. So Carolyn, calcium signals in smooth muscle cells contribute to vascular resistance and control blood pressure. Now increased vascular resistance in hypertension has been attributed to impaired smooth muscle cell calcium signaling mechanisms. And in this regard, transient receptor potential vanilloid four or TRPV4 smooth muscle cell ion channels are crucial calcium entry pathways for smooth muscle cells. However, their role in blood pressure regulation has not been identified. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Wow. TRPV4 smooth muscle cells. Cool Greg. So what did they find? Dr. Greg Hundley: Right, Carolyn. So these authors provide the first evidence that TRPV4 smooth muscle cell channel activity elevates resting blood pressure in normal mice. A1AR stimulation activated TRPV4 smooth muscle cell channels through protein kinase calcium signaling, which contributed significantly to vasoconstriction and blood pressure elevation. Dr. Greg Hundley: Surprisingly, intraluminal pressure induced TRPV4 smooth muscle cell channel activity, opposed vasoconstriction through activation of calcium sensitive potassium channels indicating functionally opposite pools of TRPV4 smooth muscle cell channels. And so Carolyn, this team identified novel smooth muscle cell calcium signaling nano domains that regulate blood pressure and demonstrate impairment in hypertension. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Oh wow, Greg. Thank you so much for that. Well, let's cover the other articles in today's issue. There's a primer by Dr. Jaffe on High Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin and the 2021 AHA/ACC/ASE/CHEST/SAEM/SCCT/SCMR guidelines for the evaluation and diagnosis of acute chest pain. There's also Research [Letter] in there by Dr. Fordyce on the eligibility for non-invasive testing based on the 2021 American Heart Association and ACC guideline for the evaluation and diagnosis of chest pain, implications from the Promise trial. Dr. Greg Hundley: Great Carolyn. Well, I've also got an exchange of letters to the editor from Professors Benali and Professor Della Bella regarding a previously published article, “Does Timing of Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation Affect Prognosis in Patients with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, Results from the Multicenter Randomized Partita Trial.” And also there's a very nice Perspective piece from Dr. Udelson entitled “Glucose Insulin Potassium Therapy for Acute Myocardial Infarction, 50 years on and Time for a Relook.” Well, Carolyn, I can't wait to hear more of the discourse between you, the authors and editors on heart failure and preserved ejection fraction. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Yay. Here we go. I'm so excited about today's feature discussion. It's on my favorite topic, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction. Although thanks to one of the authors, Dr. Daniel Burkhoff of the editorial that accompanies it, I don't even know how to pronounce, it's Heart Failure question mark Ejection Fraction. I love it. How would you pronounce that? Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: Yeah, no, we debated how to pronounce it. HFQRef…a question mark? Dr. Carolyn Lam: HFQRef. Oh my goodness. What are we going to come up with next? Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: And we actually thought the editors would have a problem with that. Whenever we put something cute in the title, we always get knocked down. So we haven't yet got knocked down, so we'll see. Dr. Carolyn Lam: No, I'm not knocking you down. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: But it just really emphasizes that we're in a very confusing time now as it comes to heart failure and ejection fraction, that we have to move on beyond ejection fraction. And although we have these strict buckets and upper and lower limits for each range, that maybe this is in a little bit of a way, doing us a disservice and doing the patients at disservice in terms of treatment. Dr. Carolyn Lam: That's really great. And everybody that was Dr. Daniel Burkhoff from the Cardiovascular Research Foundation in New York. He's the editorialist of today's feature paper. And I'm so excited that we have the corresponding author of today's feature paper as well, Dr. Philipp Lurz from Heart Center Leipzig in Germany. So first, I mean, or second, heartfelt congratulations on this beautiful paper, Philipp. If you could start with telling us all about what you did and what you looked at and what made Dr. Daniel Burkhoff call it now, Heart Failure, QREF? Dr. Philipp Lurz: Yeah. So thank you so much, first of all, obviously for having me for the kind introduction and your kind words about our work. The whole thing started with the observation that in recent drug trials, the response in HFpEF patients to drugs which were before proven to be quite successful in HFrEF actually showed a quite heterogeneous response in HFpEF patients. And that there were some patterns according to the range of ejection fractions. So it seemed that those HFpEF patients with the lower ejection fractions, they respond a little bit better to HFrEF medication than those with a higher ejection fraction. Dr. Philipp Lurz: And HFpEF studies, they included patients within and ejection fraction or 40 and above who normally would probably would consider HFpEF to start with 50 and above. But even in those truly HFpEF patients, so from 50 and anything above to 70, there was a suggestion that there might be differences. 50 to 60 might be something else and then 60 and above. And this is where we started to look into our cohort and to group them according to ejection fraction and see whether we can see some important and clinically meaningful differences in morphology, obviously in function, but then even also in terms of our biopsy results. Dr. Philipp Lurz: And that also implies that we did quite a deep phenotyping of our patients. So we use imaging, echo obviously. We use magnetic resonance imaging. We were able to acquire in a larger percentage of that cohort, by the way, it was 56 patients in total, we were able to get some left ventricular biopsies. And most importantly, when it comes to the functional properties of the left ventricle, we also acquired pressure volume loops. And that has the great advantage that we obviously we can look at low dependent parameters, but more important, also low independent in disease of both systolic and diastolic function. And that's pretty much what we did. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Oh my goodness. I mean, as an editor at Circulation, can I just first tell you that's what really, really stood out? It's the comprehensive, careful, in-depth characterization. It may be 56 patients, but MRI, echo, biopsies, exercise, PV loops. I mean, it was a lot, a lot that you did. Could you boil it down to what you found and maybe just to first clarify to the audience, how did you bend the ejection fraction? And then what you found? Dr. Philipp Lurz: We divided the cohort in two groups. One with an ejection fraction 50 to 60, and the other groups higher than 60% left ventricular ejection fraction. We ended up in lower group, 21 patients, in the higher group with 35 patients. And they were quite different. They had distinct features in terms of morphology, means that the lower injection fraction group, they had larger ventricles. That's probably what you would expect when you group them according to eject fractions. So not that surprising. Dr. Philipp Lurz: And at that point, and they had the same stroke volume. The low ejection fraction group, you could say that they had a certain degree of eccentric modeling, whereas those were the high ejection fraction group, that concentric modeling. When we then looked at the biopsies, the group with the low ejection fraction group, so 50 to 60, they had higher percentage of myocardial fibrosis at 15%. Dr. Philipp Lurz: And then on left ventricular biopsy, we saw that patients with a high ejection fraction group, they had less myocardial fibrosis, so more fibrosis in those with the lower ejection fraction group. And this is really interesting because when we then look at the real size of the pressure volume loop analysis, despite the fact that the high ejection fraction group had less fibrosis, they had the most stiff ventricles on pressure volume loop analysis. So that's already a very important point because it illustrates once again that we should not mistake fibrosis with stiffness, and also not the other way around. There are other parameters which can cause stiffness such as cellular stiffness, and it's not just the extracellular matrix. Dr. Philipp Lurz: So that's an important point. Those patients with high ejection fraction, they had the most stiff ventricles. They had the most relevant limitations in left ventricular filling, so the most marked diastolic dysfunction. We also looked at systolic parameters and there we found that they had a very high contractility. So this is the end systolic pressure volume relationship or also called elastics and that's a marker for contractility. So these ventricles with high ejection fraction, they can contract very well. They have high contractivity. But this is also a marker of systolic stiffness. So they stiff, both in terms of diastolic properties, but also systolic properties. And there, their most important limitation is the limitation in filling. Dr. Philipp Lurz: The other group, injection fraction 50 to 60, they do have some stiffness. Obviously we are talking about HFpEF. This is a disease of a diastolic dysfunction. So they have increased stiffness, but to a lesser extent. They can feel a little bit better, but what we see there is a reduction in contractility, so systolic properties. So you could argue that in some extent, that group 50 to 60, they behave a little bit more like HFrEF. Whereas those with high ejection fraction, they're completely different. Very stiff, both doing diastolically and sistolly. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Thank you so much. Now I really have to get the gurus insight into this. And of course by guru, I mean, Dr. Daniel Burkhoff. First, I'm going to take this opportunity to share a little private personal story that it's very hard for me to call Dr. Burkhoff, "Dan", although if you will allow me it's because I was a fellow when I first met Dr. Burkhoff. And one of my first papers was actually communicating with Dr. Burkhoff trying to draw these PV loops based on the noninvasive measurements that I was obtaining at the Mayo Clinic in the Olmsted County Cohort. And so this is just really making me smile. So Dan, if I may, what do you make of all this? And if you could give us what you think may be the clinical take home message. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: Thank you so much, Carolyn. And also again, Philipp, congratulations on really a really important paper. I think as Carolyn was saying, one of the many things that impressed me was the multifaceted aspects of the thorough evaluation using multi modality characterization, which is in my mind, unprecedented, especially for this particular group of patients. And you summarized the main results very well. But to me, the thing that really struck me and that we really tried to emphasize in our editorial was the differential response to exercise, to hand grip exercise in this point. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: As you already said, and I don't think this could be understated, that in the lower range, the 50 to 60, these patients were able to fill, the ventricle was able to fill more, the end diastolic pressure still went up significantly into an abnormal range, which is of course is one of the requirements for the diagnosis of HFpEF. But those patients, the end diastolic volume was able to increase and that helped them to increase their cardiac output. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: In the higher EF group, the greater than 60, the end diastolic pressure went up, but the volume did not increase. So the end diastolic pressure volume relationship became higher elevated. And this of course, was reminiscent of what was identified in the early nineties by Dalane Kitzman. And really, he didn't make this distinction between the lower half and the higher half. And we had also in a paper that we did with David K and others, seen a similar finding a couple years ago. And I think this is really, to me, was the along with the apparently disparate findings on myocardial biopsies with fibrosis going the wrong way, if you will, as you already commented on. So this is at least for the higher EF group, is identifying what I would refer to as really true diastolic dysfunction. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: That means that the patients can't fill, there really is some problem why the EDP can go up, but the volume does not increase. And this is obviously for future research, we have to understand what is the difference between these two groups. There are several speculations about why it might. For example, one thing that has been proposed in the literature is the pericardial restraints. If the heart is constrained in a tight pericardium, the volume is recruited from the venous system, which is another what I think is a very important part of this HFpEF phenotype, but the heart is already constrained. That would elevate both the CVP and the wedge pressure without concomitant increases in RV or LV volumes, and therefore limit the ability to increase the cardiac output. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: Another alternative is delayed relaxation. That means a true abnormality of active relaxation. The tau if you will, but I believe in your study, if I remember correctly, the tau was not that abnormal and did not really change very much in either group. So it was harder to really pin it on an abnormality of active relaxation. So that was one really, I think, really important finding. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: The second is now in the group 50 to 60 where they could fill, one of the limitations of the study that you pointed out was that there's no control group. So why this population, this HFpEF population, the EDP increased, but the EDV the end diastolic volume also increased, so what's different between those patients and normals? That we don't really have an answer for yet. So that would be one thing is to compliment these findings with results in a true control group that does not have HFpEF. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: So we still have this mystery of why does EDP go up in this group? My perspective is not an abnormality of diastolly. It's not a diastolic dysfunction, even though it's a HFpEF. I've been trying to promote this idea for more than 20 years, that all HFpEF is not an abnormality of diastolic ventricular properties. There may be extra cardiac factors even beyond the pericardium in this group. So I think these results are just further telling us how complicated and individualized our approach to the pathophysiology of these patients should be. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: And also just one final comment, making a strict cutoff at 60% or 57% as we saw from Valsartan Cuba trial, Valsartan study, is clearly also not going to do us justice. Let's say that we're dealing with anyway, patients with two different pathophysiologies. There's going to be a distribution of these different mechanisms and there's going to be an overlap of these distributions. So we need to start thinking about how we individualize and characterize the pathophysiology in individual patients. So maybe patients with EF of 55, certain patients with EF 55 will not respond to Sacubitril- Valsartan and maybe some patients with an EF of 62 will. So we need to go more deep into the clinical characterization. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: And methods that you use in particular, the pressure volume loop, seem to separate, very nicely, these two different, at least two different subtypes. So I think it's very exciting, and I think people should really take notice of what you found and build on this as a foundation and understand that we need to go deeper on the clinical side to phenotype these patients. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Philip, what are your thoughts? Dr. Philipp Lurz: No, I think that the concept about stress and unstressed volume is extremely important and fascinating, but that's where it gets really complex because you could make the conclusion from our results that especially the high ejection fraction group, they are have a very high preload sensibility, which means that when we reduce pre-load too much in them, they drop the stroke volume very suddenly. So that's probably also the clinical question for the future. There are many patients, HFpEF patients in whom we should reduce stress volume and they can benefit from that. Dr. Philipp Lurz: But I also believe that there is a cord of patients, and those are probably more those with high ejection fraction. They actually, they could experience some harm if you reduce preload too much because of the severe filling restrictions, because of the inability to increase end diastolic volumes, especially as an adaptation to exercise. And I think if we find out ways to differentiate who will benefit from preload reduction and from decongestion and who actually might experience even harm from these interventions, then we are certainly one step further. Dr. Carolyn Lam: If I may, I just, I could go on forever, but I know that there's going to be this question that the audience is immediately thinking. Here we are going into the weeds, hemodynamics, we all love it. In fact, I think we're all kind of a little bit geeky about it, but then you've got, Emperor preserved, the Deliver Trial sort of being positive in heart failure with ejection fraction above 40. So, do we really need to understand the different hemodynamic? What do you think is happening that this sort of blanket benefit can occur? Dr. Philipp Lurz: I don't think that everyone will benefit. And I think that a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology will help to even increase the rate of responders and dissect of those who will not respond or we need a different therapy. Obviously here we group patients according to ejection fraction. We just discussed that this is a very rough way to characterize patients. So the next step certainly would be to understand or to see distinct patterns in left ventricular functional behavior irrespective of ejection fraction. Because you might can skip ejection fraction at one day, but the conclusion is not, at least not in my opinion, that all heart failure is the same. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Nice. And Dan, what do you think? Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: Well, I think with STLT2 inhibitors, first of all, we're looking forward to actually seeing the results from Deliver what the details of it in terms of mortality versus hospitalizations and quality of life. But with regard to HSGL2 inhibitors, I don't think we know the mechanism. I mean, I've read about six papers that definitively talk about different mechanisms of action. I think we don't know. And even despite, let's say positive studies, there's still a significant residual risk that these patients have. So these are not the end of the story by any means. I think this is the beginning of the story and there's still going to be a lot to learn. Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: I think with SGLT2 inhibitors, I think it's difficult to identify who is or how do you define a responder on an individual patient basis? When we look at groups and you look at mortality and hospitalizations, yes, you can identify them. But that group does not overlap exactly with those who have an improvement in quality of life. So I think that we're just at the beginning, Dr. Daniel Burkhoff: I do think that a deeper phenotyping is going to be the way to go ultimately and I think we're going to need more therapies. Thanks again, Carolyn for inviting me to do the editorial and to participate in this. And I would really be remiss if I did not mention the extraordinary contributions for Mickey Brener and also Barry Borlaug who were equal contributors to this editorial and the evaluation of this paper. So I'm really indebted to both of them for this interpretations. And thank you again, Philipp, for just a wonderful paper. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Couldn't have said it better and I just want to thank you once again for providing that deeper phenotyping for opening the door. Many of us said it again and again, this is the beginning and we need more studies, frankly, in yours. I mean, I think Dr. Burkhoff wants you to send normal, healthy people for MRI biopsies, exercise, echo. I'm kidding, on PV loops, but it's true. We need that data. We need the same and the HFrEF and really just to understand the whole thing. I'm so excited about what this paper opens up. Dr. Carolyn Lam: I am thrilled to see your editorial, Dan. I'm sure it's going to be well received. Everyone who's listening to this, Pick up the paper, pick up the editorial. Thank you so much for joining us today.
