Guess how many pounds of chocolate the average American consumes yearly? Over 11. My girlfriend said she’d rather have chocolate than sex. Good thing her passion for chocolate comes with surprising health benefits and a melt-in-your-mouth flavor. Chocolate’s always been popular for its taste and mouth feel. It’s been deemed the most craved food. Personally I never met a chocolate I don’t like…well, white chocolate but then technically, it’s not really chocolate. The idea that dark chocolate is good for health is not new. Think about red wine and green tea. They are good for you because they contain compounds called flavonoids or naturally occurring plant substances which have health benefits. Guess where these flavonoids are also found naturally? Cocoa beans and chocolate. Chocolate benefit #1: these naturally found flavonoids in chocolate may improve blood flow, reduce blood pressure and lower lousy or LDL cholesterol. Chocolate benefit #2: You’ve no doubt heard the word microbiome or in this case I’m referring your gut. It seems that beneficial microbes in your gut feed on chocolate, ferment it and produce anti-inflammatory compounds which may decrease inflammation of heart tissue and reduce long-term risk of stroke. Chocolate is also a source of fiber. The undigested fiber in cocoa is broken down in the gut and can be combined with prebiotics to also produce anti-inflammatory compounds. The good news is that the number of healthy gut microbes increases and the less healthy microbes decrease. Chocolate benefit #3: Dark chocolate also contains the beneficial minerals iron, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. Here’s where it becomes important for you to make smart decisions. You’ve had surgery but that changed didn’t change your brain nor the occasional desire or craving. So even after bariatric surgery when you’re back to eating regular food in smaller portions, you’ll likely have the occasional desire for chocolate. So what to do? Depends on you. If you skip the chocolate are you ok with that? If so, fabulous. Or do you feel you have denied yourself of something you really love? What happens if you continually deny this desire for chocolate? In my experience it’s not unusual to give in and eat way more than if you have allowed yourself that small piece when you wanted it. So back to making that smart choice. First, remember that added sugars and sugar alcohols can cause dumping syndrome. Everyone is different but for many, it doesn’t take much added sugar to start symptoms. The caveat here is that the benefits of chocolate can turn ugly by the addition of less healthy ingredients such as added sugars or sugar alcohols, trans fat or hydrogenated fat, and butter oil and coconut oil, both of which contain a lot of saturated fat. So it’s up to you to be the label sleuth and look at the Nutrition Facts label and closely read the ingredient list of different chocolate. The longer the ingredient list, the more likely it is that less-healthy items that have been added will take away from the cocoa’s or chocolate’s potential health benefits and potentially kick off dumping. Choosing a small piece of your favorite dark chocolate is the smartest way to go. You’ll get that fabulous flavor and mouth feel. Plus if you compare chocolates, you can find numerous good quality ones with few added ingredients you don’t need. Again, remember what can happen if you really want chocolate and deny yourself over and over. You’re likely to have a craving that results in eating a lot more chocolate than you need and probably chocolate with added ingredients you don’t want. Instead just allow yourself a small piece when you really want it. Yes give yourself permission to have it and enjoy it. N0 guilt. Then you control the portion, get the benefits and don’t end up overeating on chocolate filled with added ingredients you don’t need. And you keep dumping syndrome out of the picture as well. Whether you prefer chocolate to sex or not, you can enjoy dark chocolate for it’s fabulous taste, reap the potential health benefits and work it into your eating plan by using these smart strategies.

Suresh Mahadevan is the CFO of SureCash, a fintech firm in Bangladesh. Prior to that he was group CFO at Digiasia, an Indonesian fintech firm after spending close to 12 years with UBS bank in leadership positions in Hong Kong, India and Singapore, working in the Asian equities business. Suresh has been an angel investor for the past four years, participating in more than 20 investments. He also advises several start-ups on strategy, culture building and fund raising. He has an MBA from Columbia Business School, a post-graduate diploma in management from the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta and an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering. “We have tried raising a lot of money … the company’s out of cash and I have no other option but to close the company.” Email to Suresh Mahadevan from solo founder Support our sponsor Today’s episode is sponsored by the Women Building Wealth membership group, the complete proven step-by-step course to guide women from novice to competent investor. To learn more, visit: WomenBuildingWealth.net. Worst investment ever Suresh ventured into angel investing around four years ago, driven in part because his employer UBS, a large investment bank dominant in Asia, decided to ban staff from investing in listed stocks anywhere in the world, at any time. So what could he invest in? UBS said he could invest in ETFs and private companies. So that interested him and he started researching them. Angel investing target tries to harness India’s other religion – cricket This worst investment ever story centers around his third bid at angel investing, which featured his other passion (more or less India’s No.1 passion), the game of cricket. So the company he was looking at was a would-be unicorn market entrant - a fantasy sports betting app. The way it planned to make money was to let people to pick up their own teams with a mix of players from any teams. Then people could put money behind their teams. Depending on the performance of the individuals, you could get a big win if you picked all the right players. So the model was simple. The company collected all the prize money and distributed 80% of it. Fantasy cricket app was to be first of its kind In India, cricket is like a religion and Suresh had followed it closely for at least 40 years, so he was very attracted to the idea. The company was a software operation that built an app to allow subscribers to bet money on the people they picked, and they would strongly advertise this as a game of skill, not a game of chance. If a person has followed cricket or baseball for years, then they know who to pick based on the prevailing conditions. So having been an ardent fan of cricket, this was a big factor in why Suresh got excited about the company. Invests US$100K as noted cricket personality is solo founder What also excited him was 11 or 12 years ago, there had been established an Indian Premier League, professional Twenty20 cricket contest called IPL, and it was a big success. On top of that, the solo founder was highly qualified; he had been to all the right schools, the best engineering school, the best management school, and was a prominent cricket celebrity with millions of followers. Suresh consulted friends in the sports content business, who said Suresh was onto a great idea and also wanted to invest. Suresh felt he was looking at a once in a lifetime opportunity so he put US$100,000 into it, without sufficient due diligence. It was also early days for his angel investing career. He believed that such an astute and market-making play on cricket popularity in India couldn’t lose. ‘I forgot to tell you, he’s bad with numbers’, the first of many red flags Suresh signed up and introduced many friends to the idea, and they also invested. But the first warning signal sounds was when the very friend who had introduced Suresh to the founder said: “Hey, by the way, I forgot to tell you, this guy’s not great with numbers … he’s such a great guy. But his number sense is a little wanting.” Suresh said: “Why didn’t you tell me this before?” Another thing Suresh noticed was that the founder used to visit Singapore regularly from India and he was always smoking and drinking. Suresh gently asked him about his health, as he was thinking this could be a matter of serious “key-man risk”. With so much riding on one man, there was danger he could become seriously ill or die on the job. Another red flag was the founder’s lavish lifestyle: he liked to ski, always stayed at expensive hotels, and would pay $15 for a gourmet coffee when a $5 Starbucks would have sufficed. Suresh started wondering if he was funding this guy’s luxurious tastes. Excessive personal and business spending ‘didn’t matter’ to founder Suresh eventually called him on his spending, but the guy fobbed him off, saying these things didn’t matter. Another strange thing was the founder wanted more introductions and he was constantly fundraising. Another problem with the business was that it was very seasonal, of course, being focused on cricket. So a lot of people were invested in this company, introduced by Suresh, which in the end was a source of embarrassment. Things went on like this for a couple of years. Then it dawned on Suresh that the company was failing to make substantial progress. He adds that the problem with start-ups is that when things are going wrong, the founders don’t communicate much and this guy wasn’t talking about problems, but was just asking for more introductions (and more money). Realizes that business is not on solid ground Finally, Suresh realized the business was quite troubled. This awakening came after another red flag that was very worrying. Whenever he asked the founder about the whole business plan, the founder would dodge the question. Suresh had also been meeting companies that were interested in buying the company outright. The founder refused, saying his venture was a unicorn that was going all the way to the top. Suresh said he has come across this many times: The Founder’s Ego! So after three years or so, Suresh received a nice email saying: “Hey, we have tried raising a lot of money. The company’s out of cash, and I have no other option, but to close down the company.” There was a well-funded competitor, which was now the real “unicorn” in the market, constantly advertising on television and was now very famous. So the newcomer became the winner who took it all and they took everything. The founder had run out of cash and ended up winding up the company. “What had happened was clearly there was a very well-funded competitor, which was now the real unicorn, which was constantly advertising on television (a company called Dream 11) and was now very famous. So they became … like a winner who takes all and they took everything, because they were well funded and could do the customer acquisition.” Suresh Mahadevan Some lessons Opportunity cost Be wary of investing with founders for whom the opportunity cost is high. Some founders think everything can be solved with money. Competition is always here or will always emerge The founder of this enterprise failed to put much thought into competition, at all. Do your due diligence on everyone involved This is especially true when your target company has a solo founder. This founder and his employees were taking regular salaries at high rates, and were not acting like careful people involved in a start-up. Be especially wary of lone founders They tend to become delusional. In Suresh’s portfolio of companies, the few that have not gone to zero but are not doing well are run by solo founders. Part of their delusion is that they externalize failure and fail to look inward. But, after these experiences, he has totally refined his investing process. One method he uses is that if he likes a founder, he gets a lot of other people to look at them and their business, for objectivity. Never dismiss red flags In Suresh’s story, the founder was not taking care of his health and this was an obvious red flag. Another was the lone wolf staying at fancy places the luxury of which was unnecessary and unwise. Andrew’s takeaways Collated from the My Worst Investment Ever series, the six main categories of mistakes made by interviewees, starting from the most common, are: Failed to do their own research Failed to properly assess and manage risk Were driven by emotion or flawed thinking Misplaced trust Failed to monitor their investment Invested in a start-up company Investing in start-ups (N0.6) is a very high-risk venture When you invest in a start-up, it is such a high-risk activity that Andrew usually recommends against it. Doing business with or investing in friends’ enterprises doesn’t always work, but it can work. It doesn’t always work with family, but it can work. Some people can truly earn our trust through good performance over a long period. Handy model to assess start-ups TIEM: Trust - Idea - Execution - Money Anytime Andrew looks at investing in a start-up situation, he applies this formula. Trust: The first question he asks is: Do I trust this person? Trust is only built over time, it’s very hard to walk into a new situation and say “I trust this person” If there’s no trust from the start … STOP. Idea: Is it a good idea? If it is not … STOP. Execution: Can this person or team execute on this idea? There’s a huge difference between the type of person who can come up with an idea and the type of person who can execute on it. Part of Jen’s story was that her team started missing deadlines. They lacked the ability to execute the plan. Money: If you don’t have money, you’re not going to get there. So you’ve got to have the runway that money provides. In Suresh’s case “I think this one (company) really kind of broke down at the point of execution.” Andrew Stotz Financial professionals can be overconfident about own investments When talking to clients and advising clients, usually professionals put in a lot of care into the research done into the suitability of a particular investment on behalf of their client. But sometimes they throw that out the window when they’re looking at their own ventures. Things can get overlooked. Actionable advice Search carefully into the character of founders or entrepreneurs Nowadays, Suresh spends a lot of time and effort in getting background and character checks done on founders, through multiple references. This includes going to consumers of their past products or services. The character of the founder is key in terms of his opportunity cost, even behavior such as reputation for doing the right thing. Be even more wary of sole founders Suresh is even more cautious when he is looking to invest in a business with a sole founder. Of the 24 angel investments he has participated in, three have not done well; one has gone to zero, two will probably go to zero in the next few quarters; all of that trio are sole-founder-led businesses. Suresh has found the common theme is that they tend to completely blame everything else except themselves. No. 1 goal for next the 12 months Suresh recently joined Bangladesh fintech company SureCash, and it’s purpose is very involving for him because it’s built on financial inclusion, as it is helping the government distribute money to mothers of primary school children. Over the next 12 months, he really wants to build a great business that helps improve the lives of people and creates value for the venture’s shareholders. Parting words Angel investing is great because it helps companies and ideas to launch, but one thing Suresh wants listeners to remember is that is it the most illiquid investment you can ever make. “If you have college fees to pay for … (or you are) sending them to expensive private schools, don’t put that money in angel investing.” Suresh Mahadevan You can also check out Andrew’s books How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market My Worst Investment Ever 9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them Transform Your Business with Dr. Deming’s 14 Points Connect with Suresh Mahadevan LinkedIn Twitter Connect with Andrew Stotz Astotz.com LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Twitter YouTube My Worst Investment Ever Podcast
Jen Greyson is one of the top eight women in crypto and is a genius at failure. She’s currently running co.co, a start-up that’s the Airbnb of office space, speaks internationally on topics ranging from AI to being a female tech founder and knows the struggle of being a working parent through the longest summer. “I should have left sooner, I would have still prospered like I did had I left when I knew I should leave. I stayed because of my investment, because of my sunk costs. I stayed longer than I should have. If I would have trusted myself when I knew I needed to go it would have been much more beneficial.” Jen Greyson Support our sponsor Today’s episode is sponsored by the Women Building Wealth membership group, the complete proven step-by-step course to guide women from novice to competent investor. To learn more, visit: WomenBuildingWealth.net. Worst investment ever Chance meeting with computer engineer on an AI quest About four years ago, Jen had built the perfect life for herself. She was a new single mom, was ghostwriting for an amazing client that she had had for a few years and worked one day a week. She would go hiking with her dog and had a great home on a lake. Then she met a captivating computer engineer who was into AI. Over long lunches she would hear from him about virtual reality, AI and other things she thought only existed in science fiction. His goal was to build artificial intelligence “for good”, to create a level playing field so that some young person in Switzerland who wants to use AI to complete a college exam has the same chance as a CEO working for a Fortune 100 company that can afford to pay a huge AWS bill. Drunk on idea’s Kool Aid The more she started looking into the idea, the more she liked it. She offered to help with his writing really wanted to be a part of the process because it was world-changing. She was also newly divorced, had a lot of freedom and was financially doing well. So she dug into his business plan and her business brain kicked in. She had run some big businesses but had left corporate America never wanting to return. He suggested one afternoon: “You should come run my company for me.” And at this point, she was fully wrapped up in the idea, “had drunk the Kool Aid” and was really excited about it. Writer becomes investor and CEO to re-invent corporate world While not wanting to get back into her pantsuit, the idea of reinventing the way corporate structures worked appealed greatly. So even though she would be running this company, it was a start-up and they would be doing it on the global stage using crypto. That community was very welcoming and she saw the potential of the project and the potential to have an impact on small businesses, through neigborhood stores to college kids, and other players who really needed AI could have it. She had some money saved and the engineer didn’t but she decided to back the idea because she believed in it. They had a good plan in place, as with every start-up in the beginning. And the thinking, as with all new businesses is, in 90 days they would be rolling in money. Jen agreed to bridge the company us for 90 days and took out some loans. Costs sink in as deadlines pass and pass After the 90 days, they had some momentum so Jen decided to bridge the company for another 90, and another 90, and another 90, and we ended up raising some money from some other people. But, it started to go badly. Targets were not getting met, things were not getting done, sections of the project were not getting coded. It was her first experience with software development and she was really having to rely on his expertise. But she was also relying on her own expertise in running the business. She knew very well about deadlines and managing people and projects and making sure that what they promised, gets delivered. Major complications hit They started having many major complications and Jen as CEO held the fiduciary responsibility. She started feeling uneasy about what their investors were getting out of the deal and that her partner was wanting to start raising more money. She also felt bad about the risk she was taking because the SEC was really starting to look at crypto projects but the regulations were opaque, which meant risk. She was having conversations with lawyers around the world and in-house to navigate the regulation landscape. And Jen was personally committed to the tune of US$150,000, which made decisions difficult to make as a CEO without thinking about the money she was risking or that she had committed. Mentor asks hard ‘zero-based thinking’ question She was making decisions that might have been different if her money was not at stake. She met a mentor and, while she didn’t want to give up on the project, needed clarity. She had invested in it, believed in it, and truly wanted to have an impact on all those lives. The mentor asked her: “What would you say to a CEO in your position if you were coming on today as an advisor?” She was rocked, but it allowed her to look at the loss as a sunk cost and that that money was truly gone, never to be returned, and to ask herself what decisions she needed to make today? Jen left with ‘unattached’ view and resigns She left that meeting able to separate herself from the disappointment, the hurt, the anger at herself and to unemotionally, unattached, look at the situation clearly. It then made the next decision easy. She handed in her resignation and that was the end of it, except that she learned a lot of amazing things, and now considers it her “most brilliant failure” for sure. “What would you say to a CEO in your position if you were coming on today as an advisor?” Jen Greyson’s mentor Some lessons Live a life with no regrets Look at every situation as a learning opportunity Always get everything in writing Always assume a start-up is going to go bad Always have an exit strategy You must have a plan for when the start-up goes really bad. Be close with the others in a start-up Have a relationship with the people you’re going into business with or only work with people who know how to communicate and with whom there is mutual respect. “Anytime you start a business with someone, it’s all unicorn farts and rainbows … Everything is glitter and beautiful and wonderful. And then, like any relationship, it gets hard and the honeymoon ends.” Jen Greyson Andrew’s takeaways Collated from the My Worst Investment Ever series, the six main categories of mistakes made by interviewees, starting from the most common, are: Failed to do their own research Failed to properly assess and manage risk Were driven by emotion or flawed thinking Misplaced trust Failed to monitor their investment Invested in a start-up company Investing in start-ups (N0.6) is a very high-risk venture When you invest in a start-up, it is such a high-risk activity that Andrew usually recommends against it.

So you’ve got to have the runway that money provides. CEOs may be risking everything Normally what people say is: “I want the CEO to have skin in the game. I want the CEO to be aligned with the other shareholders and the other investors.” But the reality is that for CEOs, sometimes it’s all of their capital. Meanwhile others are investing perhaps just 1% or 5% of their total capital so the way they think is very different. I never thought about that. Zero-based thinking is a valuable mental tool It can be applied to any part of life, even apply to relationships. Knowing what you know now (about this enterprise or relationship or job) would you still get involved with it if you just encountered it now? “If the answer is yes, awesome, keep building it. If the answer is no, that’s very valuable information.” Andrew Stotz Actionable advice Trust your gut Jen says she should have left sooner and stayed longer than she should have.

The Geek Out Pod is hype to break down all the announcements that matter at this year's E3. But we're sans Bud, so we bring in video game aficionado, Caleb Kirby, so Kirsten has someone to talk video games with. Meanwhile, Art, Bryan, and Pol have their own Electronic Entertainment Experience clocking in 45 minutes of screen time on their phones! Pol is hype for the Nintendo announcements, and will hopefully do a 'spooked' Lugi impression in honour of Luigi's Mansion 3. We do talk non-video gamey things including the worst X-Men franchise opening ever, new Ghostbusters news, and a Quentin Tarantino R rated Star Trek!? 02:43 - Bud's Weekly Geek-Out Bud's annual highlight reel from E3! 03:13 - Our E3 Highlight Breakdown 03:58 - Cyberpunk 2077 11:55 - Bethesda: Wolfenstein & Ghostwire:Tokyo 15:30 - EA - Jedi: Fallen Order 21:43 - Ubisoft - WatchDogs 3 26:01 - Square Enix - FF VII 32:27 - Square Enix - Marvel's Avengers 37:45- Google Stadia 43:14 - Nintendo!

“The Lost Boys of Thailand” ….Sounds like a Hollywood blockbuster (which it will probably soon become …). In fact, it is tonight’s saga of a gripping ~17 day rescue of 12 boys (and their adult coach — making 13) — lost, over two and a half miles underground in a labyrinthian cave system filling rapidly with raging waters — as the world looked on and prayed …. But, is this the entire saga? N0 — says Chris Knowles. According to Knowles, there is a mysterious — nay bizarre — “ritual component” to this still unfolding drama … which we shall explore “in-depth” tonight. Join us …. Richard C.

Sure, the Creighton men's basketball team is 11-0 and N0. 9 in the AP Poll, tied for its best ranking in program history. But BLUEJAYS VOLLEYBALL, GUYS. Matt has a 20-minute exclusive interview with coach Kirsten Bernthal Booth. Plus, we spend the first portion of the show with Matt breaking down his trips to Lawrence and Austin, during which the Jays won three 5-set matches before losing to eventual national runner-up Texas. Oh, yeah, about Greg McDermott's Bluejays... Plenty to talk about, including another win against Nebraska, an unexpected nail-biter against Oral Roberts, and beatdowns against Buffalo, Akron, and Longwood. Plus, Matt spends some time catching up with CU point guard Tyler Clement. And we touch on the Creighton women's basketball team's in-state rivalry game victory against Nebraska.

This podcast highlights original research published in the March 2016 issue of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery, the official journal of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) Foundation. The indications for neck dissection concurrent with salvage laryngectomy in the clinically N0 setting remain unclear. The goals of this study are to determine the prevalence of occult nodal disease, analyze nodal disease distribution patterns, and identify predictors of occult nodal disease in a salvage laryngectomy cohort. Histologically positive occult nodes are identified in 17% of cN0 patients undergoing salvage laryngectomy with neck dissection. Occult nodal disease varies in frequency and distribution based on tumor subsite. Predictors of high (>20%) occult nodal positivity include T4 tumors and supraglottic subsite. In glottic LSCC, the most frequent sites of occult nodal disease are the paratracheal nodal basins. Click here to read the full article.

Dr Fowble talks to ecancertv about the role of radiation in the treatment of the axilla in the setting of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer. There is considerable controversy regarding the appropriate surgical procedure and its timing for evaluating the status of the axillary nodes in the neoadjuvant setting. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) surgery following initial chemotherapy avoids an axillary dissection and its associated morbidity in clinical N0 patients who have pathologic negative SLN. The potential advantage of neoadjuvant chemotherapy is the ability to adjust surgical and radiation treatment based on pathologic response and thereby minimise the morbidity of combined therapy.

Objectives: It was the aim of this study to assess our institutional experience with definitive chemoradiation (CRT) versus induction chemotherapy followed by CRT with or without surgery (C-CRT/S) in esophageal cancer. Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 129 institutional patients with locally advanced esophageal cancer who had been treated by either CRT in analogy to the RTOG 8501 trial (n = 78) or C-CRT/S (n = 51). Results: The median, 2-and 5-year overall survival (OS) of the entire collective was 17.6 months, 42 and 24%, respectively, without a significant difference between the CRT and C-CRT/S groups. In C-CRT/S patients, surgery statistically improved the locoregional control (LRC) rates (2-year LRC 73.6 vs. 21.2%; p = 0.003); however, this was translated only into a trend towards improved OS (p = 0.084). The impact of escalated radiation doses (>= 60.0 vs.
