En este mensaje tratamos el siguiente caso de una mujer que «descargó su conciencia» de manera anónima en nuestro sitio www.conciencia.net, autorizándonos a que la citáramos: «Nací en un hogar cristiano; sin embargo, no recuerdo si acepté o no a Jesucristo en mi corazón cuando era pequeña.... Yo no sentía un verdadero arrepentimiento en mi corazón, no temía a Dios, iba de mala gana a la iglesia, y era rebelde y orgullosa.... He estado leyendo acerca de los eventos en Apocalipsis, y [al pensar en lo que dijo Jesucristo]: “No todo el que me dice: ‘Señor, Señor,’ entrará en el reino de los cielos”1... me dio miedo porque... quizá no acepté a Cristo como mi Salvador.... Tengo miedo de [que no vaya a ir al cielo].» Este es el consejo que le dio mi esposa: «Estimada amiga: »La felicitamos por leer la Biblia, incluso el último libro de la Biblia, Apocalipsis, que consta de profecías acerca del futuro. Es sabio de su parte estar informada sobre lo que sucederá en el futuro y preocupada respecto a dónde ha de pasar la eternidad. »Jesús dio esa advertencia porque sabía que hay muchas personas que sólo invocan a Dios de vez en cuando. Es posible que se refieran a Él como un poder superior o hasta crean que cada persona tiene un poquito de Dios dentro de sí. O tal vez lo llamen “Señor” y le pidan buena suerte o protección contra algún peligro. Algunos tratan de negociar con Dios, prometiendo fidelidad futura a cambio de favores actuales. Otros tienen pensamientos piadosos y envían sus mejores deseos. Y lo más probable es que aun digan: “Dios te bendiga.” »Sin embargo, Cristo dijo que no todos los que afirman que Él es su Señor y Maestro podrán entrar en el cielo. ¿A qué se debe eso? »¿Ha visto usted al Papá Noel que aparece en los centros comerciales durante la temporada navideña? Muchos niños se le acercan y le dicen qué regalos desean recibir para la Navidad. Él es amable y les presta atención. Pero al final del día, cuando Papá Noel regresa a su casa, ¿se lleva a los niños consigo? ¡Claro que no! Ni siquiera los conoce. Él no ha cultivado una relación con ellos. »Sólo quienes tienen una relación personal con Jesucristo pueden ir con Él a su casa en el cielo cuando dejen este mundo. Usted está preocupada porque sabe que nunca ha tenido ese tipo de relación con Él. »El tener una relación con Cristo comienza cuando reconocemos que hemos pecado y estamos de veras arrepentidos y le pedimos a Dios que nos perdone. Él es el único que puede perdonar el pecado, porque envió a Cristo a morir en la cruz a fin de que pagara el castigo de todos nuestros pecados. »Cuando lamentamos profundamente nuestro pecado, decidimos que queremos dejar de pecar. Así que le pedimos a Cristo que de ahí en adelante forme parte de nuestra vida y nos ayude a llevar una vida que le agrade. Luego leemos la Biblia para descubrir lo que Él desea que hagamos, y conversamos con Él todos los días mediante la oración. Y a medida que vamos conociéndolo mejor, cultivamos el tipo de relación con Él que hace que nos lleve consigo a su hogar celestial cuando dejemos este mundo.» Con eso termina lo que recomienda Linda, mi esposa.

El 16 de noviembre de 2022 se cumplieron 100 años del nacimiento de José Saramago. El mundo lo recibió en Azinhaga, una humilde localidad a 90 km de Lisboa. Los abuelos maternos, que no sabían leer ni escribir, fueron sus primeros maestros en el arte de contar historias, con la magia del relato desnudo bajo las estrellas. “Mientras el sueño llegaba, la noche se poblaba con las historias y los sucesos que mi abuelo iba contando: leyendas, apariciones, asombros, episodios singulares, muertes antiguas, escaramuzas de palo y piedra, palabras de antepasados, un incansable rumor de memorias que me mantenía despierto, al mismo que suavemente me acunaba". Tras mudarse a Lisboa, se vio obligado a dejar los estudios para trabajar como cerrajero mecánico, en una agencia de seguros, en una editorial, como funcionario o periodista. Vivió intensamente los avatares de su tiempo, pero también en la convicción esperanzada de que otro futuro era posible. Comunista convencido, participó activamente en la revolución de los claveles que dio término a la dictadura de Salazar. No se volcaría en la escritura hasta bien entrados los 40, pero pronto asumiría su carrera literaria como una forma de afrontar la vida. “Mi oficio era levantar piedras, no es mi culpa si debajo de esas piedras había monstruos que quedaban al descubierto”. “Nací en un mundo injusto y seguramente moriré en uno igual, en mi lápida que pongan: aquí yace José Saramago, murió furioso”. “Espero morir como he vivido, respetándome a mí mismo como condición para respetar a los demás y sin perder la idea de que el mundo debe ser otro y no esta cosa infame”; “entraré en la nada y me disolveré en ella”. Falleció el 18 de junio de 2010, en su residencia de la localidad de Tías, Lanzarote, a causa de una leucemia crónica que derivó en un fallo multiorgánico. Había hablado con su esposa y pasado una noche tranquila. Saramago escribió hasta sus últimos días, incluso se dice que llevaba treinta páginas de una próxima novela. Tenía ochenta y siete años de edad, sus lectores, de a miles, salieron a las calles de Lisboa y lo despidieron con los libros en alto.

In this episode we talk with a gentleman who cultivates Peyote for the Native American Church. We discuss his efforts to protect wild populations of the plant by teaching NAC members to grow the plant from seed as a form of ex-situ conservation and to ensure that the species will be available for indigenous use despite declining populations in habitat and declining harvests among the Peyoteros. Ex-situ cultivation of Lophophora williamsii - Peyote - is a means of preserving it for use by the Native American Church. As many botanists in the US and Mexico who study Chihuahua Desert ecology already know - populations of the plant in habitat are declining due to poaching - and to a greater extent - land clearance. Leonardo aka "The Peyote Lorax" informs us of his cultivation methods, his history with the plant, and the ceremonial use of the plant by indigenous peoples of North America for the past 6,000 years. We talk about his work with the Morningstar Conservancy, his efforts to teach his fellow indigenous users of Peyote how to establish and grow Peyote in states like Arizona and New Mexico where the plant is not native but where it can be grown in the ground with winter protection, etc.This was a great conversation and I'm thankful to Leo for making it happen.Your continuing support helps enable this podcast.
Listen to a blog summary of a research paper published in Volume 13, entitled, "Predictive molecular biomarkers for determining neoadjuvant chemosensitivity in muscle invasive bladder cancer." _______________________________________________ Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is a type of cancer treatment involving the administration of chemotherapy drugs before surgery. The goal of NAC is to shrink the tumor(s) in order to make it/them easier to remove during surgery and to decrease the chance of cancer recurrence after treatment. NAC is typically well tolerated by patients and has been shown to improve outcomes in patients with bladder cancer. Predictive biomarkers are being increasingly used in oncology to identify patients who are likely to respond to chemotherapy. In the past, the decision to administer chemotherapy was based on tumor type and stage. However, it is now understood that there is considerable heterogeneity within these groups, and that not all patients will respond to the same treatment. Predictive biomarkers can help to overcome this challenge by identifying those patients who are most likely to benefit from chemotherapy. There are a number of different types of predictive biomarkers, which can be divided into two broad categories: tumor biomarkers and host biomarkers. Tumor biomarkers are usually specific to the tumor type and can include markers of cell proliferation and DNA repair. Host biomarkers are usually found in the blood or other bodily fluids and can include markers of inflammation, immune function and metabolism. The use of predictive biomarkers has the potential to improve the efficacy of chemotherapy and reduce toxicity by avoiding its use in patients who are unlikely to benefit. In a new study, researchers Neal Murphy, Andrew J. Shih, Paras Shah, Oksana Yaskiv, Houman Khalili, Anthony Liew, Annette T. Lee, and Xin-Hua Zhu from Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Northwell Health Cancer Institute, Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research, and Mayo Clinic aimed to develop and validate a predictive biomarker panel for response to NAC in patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC). Their research paper was published on November 2, 2022, in Oncotarget's Volume 13, entitled, “Predictive molecular biomarkers for determining neoadjuvant chemosensitivity in muscle invasive bladder cancer.” Full blog - https://www.oncotarget.org/2022/11/15/biomarkers-may-predict-neoadjuvant-chemosensitivity-in-bladder-cancer/ DOI - https://doi.org/10.18632/oncotarget.28302 Correspondence to - Neal Murphy - email@example.com, Annette T.

Sem criticar, num primeiro momento, os manifestantes bolsonaristas que bloquearam estradas em todo o país pedindo um golpe de Estado, Bolsonaro se viu pressionado e gravou um vídeo pedindo a desmobilização dos protestos. Bloco 2: Transição de poder Geraldo Alckmin, vice-presidente eleito, será o coordenador da transição do governo Lula. Com Gleisi Hoffmann e Aloizio Mercadante, Alckmin já transita pelo Congresso e pelos palácios de Brasília para articular maneiras de cumprir as promessas de campanha. Lula, por sua vez, já tem agenda de chefe de Estado e vai participar da Conferência do Clima da ONU, além de ter encontros com os chefes dos poderes Legislativo e Judiciário. Bloco 3: Poder realocado Nomes do governo Bolsonaro se preparam para fazer as malas e se dispersar pelos estados onde os candidatos do capitão venceram. O próprio presidente negocia um cargo dentro do PL, já que essa será a primeira vez que ele não terá um cargo público desde a década de 1980. Na Câmara, Arthur Lira articula com Valdemar Costa Neto, presidente do PL, para se manter na presidência da casa.

The National Advisory Council, or NAC, consists of 35 members representing a wide range of geographic and professional backgrounds and is tasked with advising the FEMA Administrator on all aspects of emergency management. The NAC held its first meeting of this year, in June, in Boise, Idaho. Members shared progress reports from the equity working group as well as from the subcommittee on Workforce Climate and Readiness. They also took part in a FEMA leader panel discussion and a wildfire panel discussion and engaged in conversation with the FEMA Administrator on the Council's future direction. On this episode, we turn it over to our colleagues from FEMA Region 10, which includes Idaho, who spoke with several members of the Council, as well as the FEMA Administrator - Deanne Criswell, to discuss the importance of the NAC and how the field of emergency management is changing to meet the challenges of the future.

Tulsi Gabbard Speech LIVE | Tulsi Gabbard Accuses Joe Biden | US News Latest | English News LIVE Polyphenol consumption in adolescents is associated with better cardiovascular health University of Barcelona (Spain), October 24, 2022 The consumption of polyphenols in adolescents is associated with a better cardiovascular health, according to a collaborative research study which includes the University of Barcelona. The study has been published in Scientific Reports. As part of the study, the researchers analyzed the amount of polyphenols in the urine of 1,326 adolescents that took part in the SI! Program (Integral Health) of 24 secondary education schools in Madrid and Barcelona. Polyphenols are bioactive compounds with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties found in several plant-based foods, mainly in fruit, vegetables, nuts and olive oil. To date, there were few studies on the intake of polyphenols in children and adolescents. “With the results of this study, we observed that a higher urinary polyphenol excretion is linearly associated with a higher cardiovascular health index in adolescents aged 11-14, specially in children. This cardiovascular health index is defined by the criteria established by the American Heart Association (AHA), which considers seven variables: body mass index, physical activity, smoking, diet, blood pressure, total cholesterol and blood glucose,” says Professor Rosa M Lamuela, director of the Institute for Research in Nutrition and Food Safety of the University of Barcelona NAC supplements may benefit cardiovascular health: Human data University of Marburg (Germany), October 16, 2022 Four weeks of supplementation with N-acetylcysteine (NAC) may reduce levels of homocysteine and improve blood pressure, says a new analysis of two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. A daily dose of 1.8 grams of NAC could lower homocysteine levels by about 12%, and may improve systolic and diastolic blood pressure, according to findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition . Elevated levels of the amino acid homocysteine have been reported to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. This has led some to point to the potential of the B-vitamins to reduce homocysteine levels and reduce the risk of CVD. B vitamins are cofactors for enzymes involved in homocysteine metabolism and therefore giving people vitamin B supplements is hypothesized to reduce homocysteine levels and therefore reduce cognitive impairment. However, clinical trials including participants at risk of, or already suffering from, cardiovascular disease have produced null results, with some experts arguing that short term B vitamin supplementation should not be expected to reverse the long-term development of heart disease. “Because recent analyses that controlled for confounders such as statins or folate fortification detected a benefit of folate/B-vitamins for stroke (22–24), homocysteine may conditionally be a therapeutic target,” wrote the authors of the new study, led by Prof Wulf Hildebrandt, formerly with the German Cancer Research Center and now at the University of Marburg (Germany). “Therefore, an alternative agent for (more) effective homocysteine lowering may be desirable, especially for conditions in which B-vitamins are ineffective [e.g., in renal disease] or if a reduction in homocysteine of >25% is intended.” There is a known link between homocysteine and NAC, and some studies have shown that NAC may reduce levels of the amino acid, but the data is somewhat mixed. Results showed that NAC supplementation significant decreased homocysteine levels by an average of 11.7% (versus 4.1% in the placebo groups), which cysteine levels increased by an average of 28.1% (versus 4% in the placebo groups). There were no significant differences between the hyperlipidemic and normolipidemic men, and the smoking status also did not affect the results. The researchers also found that NAC significantly decreased blood pressure in all the men. However, significant decreases in diastolic BP were observed only for the hyperlipidemic men, and not for the normolipidemic men. Study: Late afternoon exercise helps control blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels Huazhong University of Science and Technology (China), October 22, 2022 Results of a study published in the journal Front Endocrinol show that exercising at around 4 to 6 p.m. helps to control blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels better than exercising in the morning, or around 9 to 11 a.m. For the study, researchers observed 12 healthy young men. The volunteers were told to walk on a treadmill for one hour at 60 percent of their maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The volunteers were all tested during and after a week of exercising only in the morning or just in the afternoon. After continuous 24-hour monitoring of their blood sugar levels, the total blood sugar levels of the men were lower when they exercised in the afternoon. Their blood sugar levels after meals were also lower following afternoon exercise. Most cell damage from high blood sugar is linked to a high rise in blood sugar at least one to two hours after eating a meal. The volunteers' triglyceride levels were also lower after afternoon exercise. This is crucial since your blood sugar level rises after you eat. If it rises too high, sugar sticks to cell membranes and damages them. That's why diabetes can damage every cell in your body. When your blood sugar level increases, your pancreas releases insulin to keep blood sugar levels from rising too high. Insulin lowers blood sugar by then driving sugar from the bloodstream into the liver. But if your liver is full of sugar, the liver does not accept more sugar and all the extra sugar is converted to fatty triglycerides. Having a blood triglyceride level greater than 150 indicates that your blood sugar rises too high after meals and that you are already diabetic or prediabetic. Blood levels of the good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol were also higher after afternoon exercise. When triglycerides rise too high, you are at increased risk for clots. To protect your body from a high rise in triglycerides, your HDL cholesterol carries the triglycerides from your bloodstream into your liver and a high rise in triglycerides causes a drop in blood levels of the HDL cholesterol. So the lower your HDL, the more likely you are to suffer a heart attack. Scientists reveal the relationship between sugar and cancer Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, October 16, 2022 A nine-year joint research project has led to a crucial breakthrough in cancer research. Scientists have clarified how the Warburg effect, a phenomenon in which cancer cells rapidly break down sugars, stimulates tumor growth. This discovery provides evidence for a positive correlation between sugar and cancer, which may have far-reaching impacts on tailor-made diets for cancer patients. The research has been published in the leading academic journal Nature Communications. This project main focus was the Warburg effect, or the observation that tumors convert significantly higher amounts of sugar into lactate compared to healthy tissues. As one of the most prominent features of cancer cells, this phenomenon has been extensively studied and even used to detect brain tumors, among other applications. But thus far, it has been unclear whether the effect is merely a symptom of cancer, or a cause. Prof. Johan Thevelein (VIB-KU Leuven): “Our research reveals how the hyperactive sugar consumption of cancerous cells leads to a vicious cycle of continued stimulation of cancer development and growth. Thus, it is able to explain the correlation between the strength of the Warburg effect and tumor aggressiveness. This link between sugar and cancer has sweeping consequences. Our results provide a foundation for future research in this domain, which can now be performed with a much more precise and relevant focus.” Living with others and community engagement are keys to reduced dementia risk University of New South Wales (Australia), October 24, 2022 Research published in The Lancet Healthy Longevity provides evidence to support that living with others, community group engagement and never feeling lonely are associated with slower cognitive decline. It is widely recognized that poor social connections such as small networks, infrequent interactions, and loneliness are modifiable risk factors for cognitive decline, with the 2020 Lancet Commission on dementia prevention estimating that tackling social isolation could prevent 4% of dementia cases worldwide. This research, led by UNSW Sydney's Centre for Healthy Brain Aging (CHeBA), investigated a range of measures of social connectedness to discover which had the most robust findings in relation to risk reduction of cognitive decline—and dementia. “We looked at a range of measures of social connections, in approximately 40,000 people across 13 international studies,” says lead author Dr. Suraj Samtani, Postdoctoral Fellow and social health expert at CHeBA. “Previous analyses of multiple international studies have many limitations. Co-author and CHeBA Co-Director Professor Henry Brodaty said that the findings have socio-economic significance. “We found that sharing a home with one or more person[s] and weekly community group engagement had the most robust results across studies, indicating these factors are fundamental components in the link with less cognitive decline,” says Professor Brodaty. “We also identified an association between never feeling lonely and a slower rate of cognitive decline.” Carrots Do Help Aging Eyes, Study Shows University of Utah School of Medicine, October 21, 2022 Your parents may have told you, “Eat your carrots, they're good for your eyes,” and a new study suggests they were on to something. Pigments called carotenoids — which give red or orange hues to carrots, sweet potatoes and orange peppers, or deep greens to produce like spinach, broccoli and kale — may help ward off the age-linked vision ailment known as macular degeneration, researchers said. “I tell my patients that fruit and vegetable consumption are very important for eye health — this study validates that notion,” said Dr. Paul Bernstein, a professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common causes of vision loss, especially in the elderly. It affects the macula, the center part of the retina, and can lead to declines in sharp central vision and even blindness, experts say. Scientists have already linked a variety of factors to the condition including genetics, smoking and nutrition, said Bernstein, who was not involved in the new study. However, treatment for AMD may be limited depending on the type of macular degeneration that a person develops, he said. In the new study, Wu's team looked at data from health surveys that tracked people aged 50 and older — more than 63,000 women and almost 39,000 men -over a 25 year period. Participants were all nurses and other health professionals. Overall, about 2.5 percent of study participants developed either intermediate or advanced forms of the eye condition during the years of the study. Wu's team found that people who consumed the very highest levels of carotenoids known as lutein and zeaxanthin had a 40 percent lower risk of the advanced form of AMD compared to those who ate the very least. “Other carotenoids, including beta cryptoxanthin, alpha carotene and beta carotene, may also play protective roles,” Wu added. People who consumed the very highest amount of these carotenoids — found in foods such as carrots and sweet potato — had a 25 to 35 percent lower risk of the advanced form of the illness, the findings showed. Researchers did not find any link between the carotenoids and the intermediate form of macular degeneration, however. Lutein is found in eggs and dark leafy vegetables including broccoli, kale and spinach, Bernstein said. Zeaxanthin is harder to find in the diet, he said, but you can get it from corn, orange peppers and goji berries. Wu noted that both lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the macula, where they are thought to protect it from damage from oxygen and light.

O segundo turno das Eleições de 2022 está sendo marcado por propagandas incisivas e pouco propositivas. No próximo domingo (16), os candidatos à Presidência Jair Bolsonaro (PL) e Lula da Silva (PT) vão protagonizar o primeiro debate da segunda fase das campanhas. Esse tema e as principais movimentações políticas da semana são analisadas por nossos consultores, Érico Oyama, Gabriela Rosa, Gabriela Santana e Raquel Alves neste episódio. Na avaliação dos nossos especialistas, Bolsonaro vai preparado para atacar Lula no debate. A estratégia do Presidente será tentar repetir a cena do Padre Kelmon com Lula e despertar o antipetismo novamente. Na outra ponta, a campanha de Lula tenta desatrelar a imagem do candidato ao Partido dos Trabalhadores e “desvermelhizar” a campanha, incluindo as cores da bandeira. Nesta fase, Lula ganhou o apoio da ex-candidata Simone Tebet (MDB) e essa aliança será explorada para conquistar os votos dos eleitores que prezam pela neutralidade e discurso pacífico. Já o Presidente Jair Bolsonaro tem a primeira-dama Michelle Bolsonaro e a senadora eleita Damares Alves fortalecendo a campanha para converter votos femininos e evangélicos. Olhando para o Congresso Nacional, o próximo Presidente terá um parlamento majoritariamente bolsonarista e de Centrão. Bolsonaro quer ajuda dos congressistas eleitos e reeleitos para conquistar votos. A sigla do Presidente, o Partido Liberal, garantiu as maiores representações nas Casas. Na Câmara foram eleitos 99 deputados federais e no Senado, oito, totalizando a bancada de 13 parlamentares. Além dos parlamentares, os apoios dos governadores e candidatos aos governos dos estados serão importantes para Bolsonaro e Lula, e nossos consultores comentam. Também nesta semana, o Presidente Bolsonaro sinalizou que poderá aumentar o número de ministros no Supremo Tribunal Federal caso seja reeleito. Essa movimentação foi bastante criticada por juristas e personalidades importantes da política nacional. O Presidente recuou e chegou a afirmar que a imprensa inventou a notícia. Mesmo assim, nossos consultores analisam o histórico de Bolsonaro com o Poder Judiciário e como essas interferências poderiam afetar a autonomia do STF e da Justiça. Nossos consultores apontam uma fragilidade institucional e relembram que essas movimentações já aconteceram na era Vargas e durante a ditatura militar. As movimentações dos candidatos à Presidência e os destaques políticos da semana você confere neste episódio. Confira!
Foram as urnas, as pesquisas e, agora é o Judiciário. Líderes do governo no Congresso embarcaram ontem nas ameaças à independência do Judiciário iniciadas na semana passada pelo presidente Jair Bolsonaro (PL) e pelo vice-presidente e senador eleito Hamilton Mourão (Republicanos). Na Câmara, o deputado Ricardo Barros (PP/PR) disse ver a proposta de aumentar o número de ministros da Corte como “necessidade de enquadramento de um ativismo do Judiciário”.
In this episode of the IJGC podcast, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Pedro Ramirez is joined by Drs. Jean-Marc Classe and Florence Joly to discuss the CHRONO trial. Dr. Classe is a surgeon and former head of the surgical department of the Institute of Surgical Oncology of Nantes, France. He is a professor in oncology and president of the French Society of Surgical Oncology. Dr. Joly is a medical oncologist and coordinator of gynecological and genito-urinary medical oncology. She is also the head of the clinical research department of Francois Baclesse Comprehensive Cancer Center in Caen, France. She is a professor in medical oncology and a member of both the scientific board of the GINECO intergroup and the GCIG. Highlights: -In patients treated for an advanced ovarian cancer not suitable to primary surgery, the timing of surgery after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) could depend on chemosensitivity. -When more cycles of NAC are discussed, do not confuse more cycles in order to make the disease suitable to a complete surgery with more cycles in order to perform less surgery. -In cases of patients with a highly chemosensitive advanced ovarian cancer, delaying surgery could reduce surgical morbidity and improve quality of life. -More cycles of NAC to treat a chemosensitive disease could improve the rate of complete surgery and improve the rate of pathological complete response.

Practitioners in the Native American Church (or as we like to call it, the other NAC) officially won the right to use peyote as a religious right in 1994. Now they are working to secure environmental protections for the plant that is losing habitat to development, land use policies, and climate change. Among other things, NAC representatives call for setting aside land where peyote grows. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce looks at the practice and the politics of peyote with Jon Brady (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara), president of the Native American Church of North America; Dr. Martin Terry, board member for the Cactus Conservation Institute and professor emeritus of Sul Ross University; elder Steven Benally (Diné), founding member of the Indigenous Peyote Conservation Initiative (IPCI) and co-organizer of the Annual Spiritual Pilgrimage; and Sandor Iron Rope (Oglala Lakota Oyate from the Pine Ridge agency), founding IPCI board member.
A direita conservadora e mais radical conquistou importantes cadeiras no Congresso Nacional eleito neste domingo (2) e que assume a partir de fevereiro de 2023. Os partidos do chamado Centrão ampliaram suas bancadas, o que deve dar mais força a este grupo no próximo governo - e que pode representar maior contenção a Lula, caso ele seja eleito presidente da República. Na Câmara dos Deputados, o PL, partido de Jair Bolsonaro, caminha para se tornar a maior bancada da Casa. Ao todo, aqueles que se alinham ao atual presidente vão representar cerca de 48% do parlamento brasileiro, um crescimento considerável em relação a 2018. No Senado, o mesmo movimento se estabeleceu. A legenda de Bolsonaro terá o maior número de senadores, enquanto a oposição diminuiu na Casa. No total, os partidos de centro ficarão com mais da metade das 81 cadeiras do Senado brasileiro. Com isso, esses partidos devem levar também a presidência das duas Casas Legislativas. Afinal, o que esperar de um Congresso mais conservador? Qual o poder do Centrão a partir de agora? No Estadão Notícias de hoje, vamos conversar sobre esses assuntos com o cientista político da Tendências Consultoria, Rafael Cortez. O Estadão Notícias está disponível no Spotify, Deezer, Apple Podcasts, Google podcasts, ou no agregador de podcasts de sua preferência.

https://astralcodexten.substack.com/p/highlights-from-the-comments-on-unpredictable [Original post: Unpredictable Reward, Predictable Happiness] 1: Okay, I mostly wanted to highlight this one by Grognoscente: I think really digging into the neural nitty gritty may prove illuminative here. Dopamine release in nucleus accumbens (which is what drives reward learning and thus the updating of our predictions) is influenced by at least three independent factors: 1. A "state prediction error" or general surprise signal from PFC (either directly or via pedunculopontine nucleus and related structures). This provokes phasic bursting of dopamine neurons in the Ventral Tegmental Area. 2. The amount and pattern of GABAergic inhibition of VTA dopamine neurons from NAc, ventral pallidum, and local GABA interneurons. At rest, only a small % of VTA DA neurons will be firing at a given time, and the aforementioned surprise signal alone can't do much to increase this. What CAN change this is the hedonic value of the surprising stimulus. An unexpected reward causes not just a surprise signal, but a release of endorphins from "hedonic hotspots" in NAc and VP, and these endorphins inhibit the inhibitory GABA neurons, thereby releasing the "brake" on VTA DA neurons and allowing more of them to phasically fire.

Videos: The Truth About Ivermectin: A new short documentary by Filmmaker Mikki Willis – 13:42 Neil Oliver: This supposed utopia we're having rammed down our throats isn't working – 9:58 New Rule: Cancel Culture is Over Party | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO) – 6:45 Antioxidants protect against cartilage damage Skeletal Biology and Engineering Research Center (Belgium), September 12 20228. An article appearing in Science Translational Medicine adds evidence to the role of antioxidants in protecting the body's cartilage from the damage that contributes to osteoarthritis. Acting on the finding that the protein ANP32A, which is involved in a number of processes in the body, was downregulated in osteoarthritic cartilage in mice and humans, Frederique Cornelis of the Skeletal Biology and Engineering Research Center in Belgium and colleagues discovered that ANP32A protects against oxidative damage in the joints, thereby helping to prevent the development of osteoarthritis and its progression. It was determined that ANP32A increases levels of the enzyme ATM, a regulator of the cellular oxidative defense, in response to oxidative stress in joint cartilage. The discovery suggests that antioxidant therapies could help protect against further damage in patients with osteoarthritis, as well as providing a benefit in other disorders. Administration of the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC) to the drinking water of mice that were deficient in ANP32A was shown to decrease cartilage damage and arthritis symptoms. It was additionally revealed that ANP32A deficiency was associated with osteopenia and a neurologic disease known as cerebellar ataxia in mice and that NAC helped with these conditions. “Aging, a key risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis, is associated with elevated oxidative damage of DNA, proteins, and lipids, and accumulating evidence indicates that oxidative stress is a major physiological inducer of aging,” the authors write. “We observed reduced expression of ANP32A in aged mouse cartilage and in human cartilage from patients with osteoarthritis, and we showed that Anp32a-deficient mice develop spontaneous osteoarthritis upon aging. Thus, ANP32A can be considered as a key coordinator of oxidative stress and aging in joints.” “Our findings indicate that modulating ANP32A signaling could help manage oxidative stress in cartilage, brain, and bone with therapeutic implications for osteoarthritis, neurological disease, and osteoporosis,” they conclude. Consuming Soy Peptide May Reduce Colon Cancer Metastasis University of Illinois, September 18, 2022 After a recent University of Illinois study showed that injection of the soy peptide lunasin dramatically reduced colon cancer metastasis in mice, the researchers were eager to see how making lunasin part of the animals' daily diet would affect the spread of the disease. “In this new study, we find that giving lunasin orally at 20 mg/kg of body weight reduced the number of metastatic tumors by 94 percent — we went from 18 tumors to only one. And that was done using lunasin alone; no other type of therapy was used,” said Elvira de Mejia, a U of I professor of food chemistry and food toxicology. “We learned in that study that lunasin can penetrate the cancer cell, cause cell death, and interact with at least one type of receptor in a cell that is ready to metastasize,” said Vermont Dia, a postdoctoral associate in the de Mejia laboratory. Using mice that had been injected with human colon cancer cells, the scientists began by feeding the animals 8 mg/kg of lunasin daily, which reduced the number of new tumors in the liver by 55 percent. They increased the dose five times, at last achieving a 94 percent reduction in tumors at 20 mg/kg of lunasin. “We were very impressed by the reduction, but the results were short of statistical significance from the control group. More animals are needed to strengthen the power of the analysis. It's a small study but very promising,” de Mejia said. The scientists said that consuming the equivalent of 20 to 30 mg/kg of lunasin in soy foods would be daunting in terms of number of servings per day. “But it would certainly be possible if food companies began to offer lunasin-enriched soy milk or yogurt,” she said, noting that lunasin-enriched flour is already on the market. Globally, diets are not much healthier today than they were thirty years ago Tufts University, September 19, 2022 On a scale from 0 to 100 of how well people stick to recommended diets, with 0 being a poor diet (think heavy consumption of sugar and processed meats), and 100 representing the recommended balance of fruits, vegetables, legumes/nuts and whole grains, most countries would earn a score around 40.3. Globally, this represents a small, but meaningful, 1.5-point gain between 1990 and 2018, researchers from the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University report today in the journal Nature Food. The study, one of the most comprehensive estimates yet of global dietary quality—and the first to include findings among children as well as adults—highlights the challenges worldwide to encourage healthy eating. Although global gains were modest, there was notable variation by country, with nutritious options becoming more popular in the United States, Vietnam, China, and Iran, and less so in Tanzania, Nigeria, and Japan. “Intake of legumes/nuts and non-starchy vegetables increased over time, but overall improvements in dietary quality were offset by increased intake of unhealthy components such as red/processed meat, sugar-sweetened beverages, and sodium,” says lead author Victoria Miller, a visiting scientist from McMaster University in Canada who started this study as a postdoctoral scholar with Dariush Mozaffarian, Dean for Policy and Jean Mayer Professor of Nutrition at the Friedman School, and senior author on the paper. Miller and colleagues addressed this gap by measuring global, regional, and national eating patterns among adults and children across 185 countries based on data from over 1,100 surveys from the Global Dietary Database, a large, collaborative compilation of data on food and nutrient consumption levels worldwide. The researchers' primary outcome was the 0 to 100 scale known as the Alternative Healthy Eating Index, a validated measure of diet quality. Regionally, averages ranged from as low as 30.3 in Latin America and the Caribbean to as high as 45.7 in South Asia. The average score of all 185 countries included in the study was 40.3. Only 10 countries, representing less than 1 percent of the world's population, had scores over 50. The world's highest scoring countries were Vietnam, Iran, Indonesia and India, and the lowest scoring were Brazil, Mexico, the United States and Egypt. Globally, among adults, women were more likely to eat recommended diets than men, and older adults more so than younger adults. Yogic breathing shows promise in reducing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder University of Wisconsin-Madison September 11, 2022 One of the greatest casualties of war is its lasting effect on the minds of soldiers. This presents a daunting public health problem: More than 20 percent of veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a report by RAND Corp. A new study from the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the Waisman Center of the University of Wisconsin-Madison offers hope for those suffering from the disorder. Researchers there have shown that a breathing-based meditation practice called Sudarshan Kriya Yoga can be an effective treatment for PTSD. Standard treatment interventions for PTSD offer mixed results. Some individuals are prescribed antidepressants and do well while others do not; others are treated with psychotherapy and still experience residual affects of the disorder. Sudarshan Kriya Yoga is a practice of controlled breathing that directly affects the autonomic nervous system. While the practice has proven effective in balancing the autonomic nervous system and reducing symptoms of PTSD in tsunami survivors, it has not been well studied until now. The CIHM team was interested in Sudarshan Yoga because of its focus on manipulating the breath, and how that in turn may have consequences for the autonomic nervous system and specifically, hyperarousal. Theirs is the first randomized, controlled, longitudinal study to show that the practice of controlled breathing can benefit people with PTSD. The CIHM study included 21 soldiers: an active group of 11 and a control group of 10. Those who received the one-week training in yogic breathing showed lower anxiety, reduced respiration rates and fewer PTSD symptoms. Cognition May Decline With Old Age, But Well-Being Actually Improves University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, September 19, 2022 Children and adolescents usually want to grow up as soon as possible, but most older adults will say they want nothing more than to turn back the clock. Research out of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine gives both the old and the young reason to envy each other. Scientists say that while older adults usually see a decline in thinking skills, well-being typically increases as we grow older. More specifically, scientists report that healthy older adults display greater mental well-being than younger adults, but also score lower on cognitive performances. The UCSD team is hopeful that the underlying neural mechanisms identified during this project contributing may inspire new interventions to promote healthy brain function in the future. Researchers sampled a total of 62 healthy younger adults in their 20s, and 54 healthy older adults over 60. Each subject's mental health was measured via a survey asking about symptoms including anxiety, depression, loneliness, and overall mental wellbeing. Participants also took part in a series of cognitively demanding tasks, all while their brain activity was measured using electroencephalography (EEG). Results show that young adults experience far more anxiety, depression, and loneliness than older adults. On the other hand, older individuals show higher levels of well-being. Regarding cognition, older adults, unsurprisingly, were much weaker. The EEG recordings provided further insight, detailing greater activity in the anterior portions of the brain's default mode network among older adults. This brain area is active when we ruminate, daydream, etc., and is usually suppressed during goal-oriented tasks. Notably, several other brain regions appeared to improve cognition. Strong cognitive scores among young adults were associated with more activity in the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is part of the brain's executive control system. For older adults, though, those with strong cognitive scores actually displayed greater activity in their inferior frontal cortex, a brain region known to help guide attention and avoid distractions. The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is known to break down as the body ages. Consequently, researchers theorize that the increased inferior frontal cortex activity among cognitively strong older individuals may be an avenue for older minds to compensate during mentally tougher tasks. Drinking plenty of tea may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, finds study in over a million adults Wuhan University of Science and Technology (China), September 17, 2022 A systematic review and meta-analysis of 19 cohort studies involving more than 1 million adults from eight countries finds that moderate consumption of black, green or Oolong tea is linked to a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The findings, being presented at this year's European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) Annual Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden suggest that drinking at least four cups of tea a day is associated with a 17% lower risk of T2D over an average period of 10 years. While it's long been known that regularly drinking tea may be beneficial for health because of the various antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic compounds tea contains, less clear has been the relationship between tea drinking and the risk of T2D. So far, published cohort studies and meta-analyses have reported inconsistent findings. Overall, the meta-analysis found a linear association between tea drinking and T2D risk, with each cup of tea consumed per day reducing the risk of developing T2D by around 1%. When compared with adults who didn't drink tea, those who drank 1-3 cups daily lowered their risk of T2D by 4%, while those who consumed at least 4 cups every day reduced their risk by 17%. The associations were observed regardless of the type of tea participants drank, whether they were male or female, or where they lived, suggesting that it may be the amount of tea consumed, rather than any other factor, that plays a major role. “While more research needs to be done to determine the exact dosage and mechanisms behind these observations, our findings suggest that drinking tea is beneficial in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, but only at high doses (at least 4 cups a day)”, says Li. She adds, “It is possible that particular components in tea, such as polyphenols, may reduce blood glucose levels, but a sufficient amount of these bioactive compounds may be needed to be effective. It may also explain why we did not find an association between tea drinking and type 2 diabetes in our cohort study, because we did not look at higher tea consumption.”

The Case: Joanna is dealing with chronic fatigue and nausea and nothing seems to help She heard an episode of Health Mysteries Solved with Kasia Kines and wondered if she might be suffering from EBV or Epstein Barr Virus Her doctor ran a test and informed her that she did not have EBV so she was back to square one. Not satisfied with this, Joanna came to me. I took a look at the labs that her doctor had run and saw that he hadn't run a full EBV panel. This is common with conventional doctors because they may not be aware that in the last few years LabCorp has changed their panels to exclude an important marker unless the doctor specifically asks for it. As a result, Joanna was not tested for this marker and I knew this was the first step in us solving her health mystery. The Investigation - Changes to EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) This all started because Joanna had heard my conversations with Kasia Kines (episode 4 and episode 43). I'm not surprised because these are some of the most downloaded episodes! I know there are a lot of people struggling to understand what is going on with their health, just like Joanna, and exploring if EBV might be the root cause. Since my last interview with Kasia, there's been more research on EBV, including the impact of COVID and COVID vaccines. Joanna's case seemed like a great reason to invite Kasia Kines back on the show to discuss EBV again. Kasia Kines is a Doctor of Clinical Nutrition and the CEO of EBV Educational Institute and Holistic Nutrition Naturally. She is the author of the Amazon best-sellng book The Epstein-Barr Virus Solution. EBV Testing There are 4 markers to look for when testing for EBV and, as Joanna discovered, not all labs test for all 4 markers. The 4 markers you want to be included in your test are: EA IgG (Early Antigen) – this is the most important test and it's often skipped. EBNA IgG (Epstein Barr Nuclear Antigen) – this marker shows the history of infection in non-acute cases revealing the long-term status of the virus. VCA IgG (Viral capsid antigen) – identifies if there is an acute infection (and remains present after initial infection). VCA IgM (Viral capsid antigen) – this shows up in the early stage of an infection and usually disappears. It's also worth noting that markers may not be detectable right after the initial exposure. And, some markers can go up and down in a day so tests may need to be repeated to get a true picture of what's going on. Studies have also found that healthy people can test positive for years without any symptoms. Ebstein Barr Virus (EBV) and Autoimmune Disease Once someone has been exposed to EBV (and Kasia says that 90% of children are), then it stays in the system for life. Most of the time, it remains dormant but different things can trigger it. Those with autoimmune issues are more at risk of their EBV being triggered because their immune system is often struggling or challenged. This increased immune system activity could also potentially lead to molecular mimicry and result in the immune system mistakenly attacking organs. What Causes EBV to Reactivate? There are many triggers that can cause the Epstein Barr Virus to reactivate and it can happen over and over again. Some of the most common ones are stress, environmental toxins, anxiety, and hormonal changes (even a woman's monthly cycle can reactivate EBV). Kasia says that some of the people in her community (who generally are aware of their EBV status and have regular flare-ups) also reported that COVID as well as the vaccine increased their EBV reactivation. EBV Reactivation Symptoms Different people experience EBV reactivation differently. Some will say that they experience a special kind of fatigue while others might get a rash or have a fever. Becoming aware of and tracking your EBV symptoms will help you manage reactivation symptoms sooner. Tracking may also help you identify triggers to avoid reactivations. The Emergency Protocol to Treat EBV Reactivation Symptoms When someone is experiencing symptoms and they know they have chronic EBV (even if it is not always active), Dr. Kines recommends a series of supplements to support the immune system and decrease symptoms. Her emergency EBV protocol includes: Selenium NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) L-Lysine Licorice Vitamin C Zinc Vitamin E Vitamin D These supplements should help stabilize the immune system so that it can fight EBV. In addition, Dr. Kines encourages everyone to pay attention to the other factors like the environment, emotion (especially fear, anxiety, and stress) as well as nutrition. EBV and COVID Dr. Kines says that they learned a lot about EBV during the COVID pandemic. One of the things is that anti-viral supplements (like the ones mentioned above as well as the zinc/quercetin combo) can help with EBV as well as other viruses like COVID. They also found that EBV can reactivate when the body is fighting the COVID virus so they suspect that there may be a connection between Long COVID and EBV. Dr. Kines referenced a study that found that 73% of Long Haul COVID cases were actually an EBV reactivation. One caution is that anyone who is pregnant should avoid taking large doses (over 400 mg) of Quercetin. Another caution is around the use of steroids or corticosteroids which are sometimes used to treat COVID. Medical research has found that steroids are not recommended for those with chronic activated EBV. Taking Action to Combat EBV One of the points that Dr. Kines likes to stress is that we do not have to suffer from EBV. While it is not a virus we can kill, there are ways to find a balance and cohabitate with the virus. There is a way to keep it in check so that you can live a healthy life. This includes understanding your triggers and decreasing your exposure to them as well as recognizing and treating symptoms quickly with the emergency protocol. Next Steps In Joanna's case, when I realized that her early antigen had not been tested I knew we needed to explore that as it is possible to have a reactivated EBV and still have a negative VCA IgM. The results backed up my suspicions. We put Joanna on Dr. Kines emergency protocol with a few additional supplements to further support her immune system. This included: NAC - 2/day Reacted Zinc - 2/day Quercetin + Nettles - 4/day Selenium - 2/day Allimax - 6/day Lysine - 3/day In addition, we improved her nutrition and focused on making sure she was making healthy lifestyle choices. We also spent some time digging deeper into what she wanted for herself and encouraged her to focus on being true to herself and living authentically. Mindset is such an important part of the healing process. Happy Ending Between the supplements, nutritional and lifestyle shifts, and the mindset work, Joanna made amazing progress.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions: Ashley: Hello! My 7 year old son has very enlarged tonsils. He does have allergies and currently takes monolucast every night. I remember you talking about your daughter having enlarged tonsils and you did a protocol and it helped reduce them. He doesn't snore eveynight but sometimes he does. I don't want to have his removed and was hoping you could share what you did for your daughter and I could possibly try it on him. Thank you for your help and truly appreciate all your help. Patti: Hi Dr. Cabral Wishing you well. I have listened to all of your podcast referencing breast cancer & many on cancer. I have had breast cancer twice in the same breast. I completed approximately 18 gene tests & none of them were found. I don't eat red meat, dairy or saturated fats & stopped eating eggs which I did not eat often. I do eat pasture raised organic chicken & turkey & wild caught sockeye salmon. Is there any research that they can contribute to an increase in cancer? Thank you as always!! Jennifer: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you for taking the time to try to help me. I'm a huge fan and an avid listener! My naturopath ran bloodwork on my first visit with her and discovered my iron was high (169 with iron saturation at 56, TIBC was 304 and UIBC was 135). She did not check ferritin at the time, but everything else she tested was in the normal range. She had me take Alpha Lipoic Acid for a month and retested me 4 months later. I got "the virus" 2 months before the retest. At the retest, she tested ferritin (just regular ferritin, not saturation or any other measure). This time, my TIBC and UIBC were in the low range at 226 and 106, respectively. My iron went down to 120 and my iron saturation went down to 53. My ferritin was 247. My naturopath wanted me to take Alpha Lipoic Acid again to lower the ferritin, but I wonder about that, as my iron is fine now and my TIBC and UIBC are low. She wants to retest and if my ferritin is still high, start having me get my blood drawn to lower it. I personally wonder if the high ferritin is due to inflammation from the virus or if there's another missing piece here. I'm hoping you can steer me in the right direction of what to test for or any other ideas. Thank you so much for all you do! Anouk: Hi there, I've been listening to your podcast which has been very eye opening. I have a few questions concerning my PCOS. On 6/18/21 I had a panel done. FSH: 10.3 pg/ml PROGESTERONE: 34 FREE TESTOSTERONE: 116 DHEA, ETRADIOL, T3, FREE T4 , LH, TPO ANTIBODIES, TSH , CORTISOL: ( all in normal range). I started taking all of the supplements below and re-tested on 1/20/22 and my levels were: PROGESTERONE: 13 FREE TESTOSTERONE: 58 DHEA: 2.1 and everything else was in normal range. Since my first lab on 6/18/2020 I have been taking these daily: MYO-INOSITOL, NAC, CURCUMIN, QUERCETIN, OMEGA 3, G.I PROBIOTIC At what point can I stop taking these supplements? I am a 27 year old female I exercise almost daily height 5' 8'' weight 125 My periods have gone from 67 day cycles to 35 days cycles and lasts around 3 days. My skin has cleared up and I know longer experience frequent panic attacks! ( My periods are still extremely painful) I am hoping to not be dependent on these but definitely don't want to risk having my previous symptoms return. Would love to know your insight, thanks again very much appreciate all the information you share. Anouk Pat: I take an estrogen/hormone blocker as I call it Anastrozole (same as tamoxifen) How should I go about to lose weigh all I do is gain and I watch my carbs and eat very clean and exercise.
