Much has been documented about the growing mental health crisis among American teenagers. Young people, however, are not the only ones struggling. Middle-aged women, particularly white women over the age of 45, account for nearly 60% of all Americans who have been taking antidepressants for more than five years. To be sure, with this kind of statistic, it is not clear the role that medical and pharmaceutical industries, which are incentivized to medicalize mental health struggles, play. There are also cultural factors at work. Affluent people, white people, and women are on average more likely to seek help for mental health issues than African American or Hispanic women, men, or people in poverty. It is good that more attention is now given to the mentally and emotionally hurting and that these struggles are no longer as stigmatized. But we also have reached a point where it's almost fashionable to be diagnosed with a mental health condition. This is especially true for women, and progressive women in particular. It is not unusual for people to include a mental health diagnosis in their social media profiles. Regardless of how well-founded these diagnoses are, the fact that so many (especially women and young people) embrace them as part of their identity is a troubling sign of dysfunction. Clearly, people are suffering. In a culture shaped by a “critical theory mood,” claims of suffering can be thought of as a desirable way of elevating a person's moral status. It is also not a coincidence that this suffering has accompanied a culturewide loss of a sense of meaning. A 2021 Lifeway Research study found that nearly 60% of American adults wonder about how they can find more meaning and purpose in their lives on at least a monthly basis. Rates of depression, suicidal ideation, and suicide are up across all demographics. Even as the wider world is struggling, there is a notable exception. In 2019, the Pew Research Center found that 36% of Americans who attend church or are “actively religious” regularly report being “very happy.” In other words, faith in God, marriage, family, and a sense of duty to something larger than ourselves are often what provide people with the richest sense of meaning. Ironically, these are the very things that, we are constantly being told, will constrain us. Women are told that being a wife or a mother “gets in the way” of true happiness. Men and women are told that sacrificing for others leads to unhappiness. The numbers, however, don't lie. Living unattached lives committed to individual autonomy is making us miserable. Of course, mental health struggles often inflict the righteous, too. Elijah, Martin Luther, and many others also battled inner demons. Still, whether the increased rates of mental health struggles are primarily physiological or due to self-inflicted circumstances, how we think about them matters. As author O. Alan Noble puts it, in moments of profound mental suffering, “getting out of bed is an act of worship”: But when you choose to rise out of bed each day, you also set a table for your neighbor. You declare with your being and actions that life itself is good. Whether you like it or not, your life is a witness that testifies to the goodness of God. Worship, in fact, takes many forms: singing, teaching, reflecting, relating. This is because worship is a way of recognizing the meaning that God placed in His world and for His image bearers. In fact, worship is the meaning for which human beings were made. There is nothing more than to know and to glorify God. In His grace, He makes Himself known throughout His world. It is one of God's great mercies that, by fulfilling His purpose for us, we are able to know happiness, satisfaction, and meaning. This Breakpoint was co-authored by Maria Baer.

Tom welcomes back MJG Capital Managing Partner Matt Geiger to the show. Matt remarks on the recent rallies and predicts that a smaller rally could occur on a Fed pause, while noting that reaching new highs is still in the realm of possibility. He believes the next decade holds promise for investing in miners and commodities and that this will eventually trickle down to junior miners, making him feel comfortable with the current situation. Macro factors are aligning well for precious metals, with mid-tiers beginning to pick up and the broader markets waiting in anticipation. Matt predicts that mining will eventually become more popular among younger generations. He also acknowledges the hype surrounding lithium mining, but believes that a correction is needed in that market with the trend moving towards lithium ion phosphate batteries. Matt is seeing increasing M&A activity, including some significant acquisitions. He provides advice on investing in junior miners and explorers; suggesting that betting on the people rather than individual projects is usually the best approach.

Tom welcomes back, Jesse Felder. Jesse is the founder, editor, and publisher of The Felder Report. He discusses how Federal policy aimed to create a wealth effect through printing money, yet it has only generated bubbles and the illusion of growth. He goes on to explain that the more money a country prints, the less attractive that currency becomes to other countries. We have reached a point where the Fed has to intervene and continue to monetize the debt, and the FDIC has stated they will cover all depositors, raising questions of moral hazard. Jesse believes we are heading for a hard landing in the second half of this year. In addition, an article from the Financial Times pointed out that the United States fiscal status is now similar to that of Greece and Italy due to their increasing unfunded liabilities and pension obligations. Jesse emphasizes that precious metals are the only asset class that has historic precedent of preserving value in crisis and warns that investors are currently drastically under invested in this sector. He believes that investor demand could go through the roof and that it appears to be setting up for such a run.

The Real Estate Crowdfunding Show - DEAL TIME!
Commercial real estate sponsors who took out floating rate loans are in trouble. Rates have over doubled since their lows throwing many loans into technical defaults even if the borrower is keeping them current and their lenders aren't (yet) marking them to market. What this means is that many sponsors, especially those new to the real estate game (i.e. who entered during the bull run of the last 11 years), if they have not done so yet, are likely to stop distributions to their investors and will be searching for ways to save their deals from going back to the bank in foreclosure. In a market downturn, like we have today, there are two types of sponsor: Those that underwrote conservatively, took on low debt, and were happy with lower projected returns because they knew their numbers were robust enough to weather the next, inevitable downturn. These sponsors will clean up during this downturn, buying distressed assets at significant discounts. And then there were those who promised sky-high IRR's just to attract investors, maximized the debt they took on so they could juice returns, used unrealistic rent increase assumptions, and underestimated the real impact of maintenance and tax costs in their proformas (amongst other things). These sponsors are toast. And there are also two types of bank: those that are pragmatic and urgently seeking ways to clear their books of these potentially toxic loans before values fall any further and borrowers start going into actual default on loans, and those more confident the market will right itself and so are prepared to extend loans under more favorable terms with borrowers, kicking the can down the road. With over $500 billion of bank/thrift originated CRE loans coming to maturity deadlines in the 12-months or so to mid-2024, the days of reckoning are upon the commercial real estate industry. Even sponsors who took on short term, fixed rate loans are going to hit solvency walls and start losing assets to their lenders in foreclosure or find themselves forced to sell at substantial discounts to their (and their investors') expectations. If you want to be on the right side of this equation, listen in to my conversation with Cody Charfauros, Principal/MD at Slatt Capital a debt and equity shop. Cody shares his own personal experience of the impact of dramatically increased debt costs and dives deep into market dynamics, giving you a roadmap for what to expect in the months ahead.

Are you living the life that you were created to live? I explore. People have harbored unfounded real estate fears for years. Here they were: 2012: Shadow inventory 2013: Boomers downsizing 2014: Rates spike 2015: PMI recession 2016: Vacant units 2017: Home prices above pre-GFC peak 2018: 5% mortgage rates 2019: Recession? 2020: Pandemic 2021: Forbearance crisis 2022: Rising rates 2023: Recession US houses prices are heading up this spring. The latest FHFA's Monthly Housing Report shows 4% national home price appreciation. We explore apartment reputation scores. This is a great proxy for what's happened in housing the past three years. As an investor, you have a low “loss to purchase” with your tenants. It's difficult for them to buy their first home. I discuss 12 Ways that you can raise the rent and increase the value of your property.

I'm your host, Keith Weinhold. We get clear together - Are you truly living the life that you were created to live? A housing market update with some perspective that can totally shift your real estate thought paradigm. Then, 12 Actionable Ways that you can raise the rent and add value to your property. Today, on Get Rich Education. Welcome to GRE! From Johannesburg, South Africa to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and across 188 nations worldwide, I'm Keith Weinhold and this is Get Rich Education. Last night, people were losing sleep over money. At the same time, last night, you made money… as you slept. Are you living the life that you were created to live? Your big ideas, your grandiose hopes and ambitions that you promised yourself that you would follow through on someday… have they turned into fears? Even ones that you had as a child - like to be an astronaut or a firefighter. Today, it might simply be that you would have quit your soul-sucking job by now. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs - how many are you fulfilling? All five? There are five levels. The base level are your… What are you doing to be the most that you can be? With financial freedom, you can control your time and have a chance at living the life that you were created to live. How do most people think of financial betterment? In a faulty way, like… If you get your hair cut at home and brew your own coffee at home, you figure you could save 6 bucks a day. Hey, Men's Fast-Pitch Softball at the Moose Lodge is still free. Oh geez. So that's why it's your entertainment? You could save a whopping $80 on flight tickets by adding an extra layover on your trip itinerary. Or… it's buy-one-get-one free week on Hillshire Farm brand bacon at the supermarket. Alright, how do you know that all those things right there don't move the meter in your life? It's because, ask: How many times would you have to do that activity - like add an unnecessary flight layover - in order to acquire wealth? None. It doesn't apply. You could practically do that an INFINITE number of times and you wouldn't acquire wealth to create the time to live the life you want. But how many times would you need to add a flight layover in order to make you MISERABLE? There IS a number. There is a certain number. Doing those trivial things only helps ensure that you stay at a soul-sucking job. Because rather than taking your time - a zero-sum game - rather than HAVING your time engaged in expansionary activities, you were focused on contracting. You were focused on where there's a low upside rather than activities that have an upside with no ceiling. Another way to ask if the activity is expansionary and moving you toward financial freedom is: Did you overcome FEAR in fulfilling that task? Yes, it's an inconvenient truth that facing & overcoming fear is what makes you grow. Did you overcome fear when you brewed coffee at home or got some stupid discount on grocery store bacon? What are the activities you do that move you toward financial freedom - not debt-freedom - but financial freedom & overcome fear & grow. That's an activity like: Making your first home a fourplex with an FHA loan… or repositioning your dead equity, like Caeli Ridge & I discussed here two weeks ago… or buying an income property across state lines… or learning how to become a savvy private lender… or finding out how to become an accredited investor. Are you living the life that you were created to live? Now you've got some examples, some milestones, and some checkpoints so that you'll know if you're either on the right trajectory - or hopefully - if you've been listening here long enough… you're living that life… now. Why would you live one more day of your life “below your means” than what's absolutely necessary. That should only be a short-term life mode. Don't live below your means, grow your means. Live the life that you were created to live. But the major media channels stir up so much fear - and even niche ones - that it can often paralyze, even some clear thinkers. Despite the fact that today's real estate appreciation rates are quite normalized and modestly growing, some people still have unfounded fear over real estate. And non-doers are always trying to time the market… and timing the market doesn't work. Here's what fearful permabears are concerned about. It's always something in real estate. In 2012, it was “Shadow inventory”. Remember that? Never came to pass, just like most of this stuff. In 2013, the fear was Boomers are downsizing In 2014: Rates spike In 2015, it was a PMI recession In 2016, it was vacant units. Ha! A terrible miss. In 2017, it was, look, nominal home prices are above the pre-GFC peak. Yeah, so what? They should be. In 2018, it was 5% mortgage rates. That was the fear. In 2019, I actually don't remember what the fear was that year. That was a fairly uniform year but people stirred up fear about something in order to get clicks. Call it a recession. In 2020, it was the pandemic In 2021, it was fear of a forbearance crisis. In 2022, the fear was rising mortgage rates will cause a housing price crash and there's a collapse in sales volume. In 2023, what's the fear? Are we back to recession fears again? Gosh, people have been steadily forecasting that for 12-18 months now, it still isn't here, and it still isn't on the horizon either, as job growth numbers keep beating expectations. If you're waiting to invest in the most proven investment of all-time - real estate, or even something else like gold or bitcoin or stocks - if you're waiting until the uncertainty dissipates, then you'll never be investing again for the rest of your life. About the only certain thing in the investing world is persistent inflation and the fact that people are going to need a good place to live. I invest in the certainties, not get paralyzed with uncertainty. This way, we don't get too caught up in the latest investing fad, often like stock investors do. In 2017, it was anything around “blockchain.” In 2021, it was the “metaverse.” In 2023, “AI” is the term that's instigated a Pavlovian response from investors salivating over the potential hundreds of billions in value that could be unlocked by the new technology… until that gets oversold. There IS some opportunity in some of those things, but as soon as people lose money in them, they revert back to principles. In a lot of ways, we stick to principles here, even if some of them are countercultural principles - like FF beats DF. Keep your debt & get more of it. More debt means you own more RE. US house prices have stabilized and are heading up. They've gone from modest declines or steady prices… to modest growth in most regions. That's the summary from my latest "light reading" duty—FHFA's Monthly Housing Report. It's released every month. Some highlights from the latest one, all stats through February, and with nominal pricing… Every division east of the Mississippi is up 5% to 8% annually The Pacific division, which was hurt most, saw a 3% decline National home prices are up 4% And this index covers 400+ American cities Spring numbers will be factored in soon. Since it's property-buying season, appreciation rates will likely rise. Like I've stated before and am becoming really somewhat known for talking about in the industry. In fact, just last week, I was in Arizona and shared this on Ken McElroy's show - the housing crash is a 100% certainty. That's because it already happened. It was a housing supply crash three years ago, which prevented a price crash. So then, let's look at some of the best appreciating markets in the US here, just the quick, Top 10. And notice how widespread the national HPA is. It really just excludes the western third or western quarter of US states. The market with the 10th most appreciation - and this is all YOY, through Q1 per the NAR: Santa Fe, NM up 12% 9th is Hickory-Morganton, NC up 12% 8th is Appleton, WI up 12-and-a-half per cent 7th? Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis, WI. Up 14%. I'm doing some rounding here. 6th is Oklahoma City, up 15% Elmira, NY - hey I grew up near there - is up 15%. That's 5th. 4th is Burlington, NC up 15% YOY 3rd is Warner-Robins, GA, up 16% 2nd is Oshkosh-Neenah, WI at 17% #1 in the nation is… the Kingsport-Bristol area, which spans Virginia & Tennessee. Up 19% I'm going to discuss apartments in a minute. But they are the 10 US areas with the largest single-family home price increase annually. In the Information Age, a bad reputation will follow you around like your cat, internet tracking cookies, and a song that you can't get out of your head. Apartment reputation scores are a broad measure of renter satisfaction. It's amazing to see how closely they track the macro trends that impact tenants and property managers (PMs). What I'm referencing here is J Turner Research's Online Reputation Assessment scores from today, and going back to March 2020. This is a very telling pattern here. Spring - Summer 2020: COVID descends. Lockdowns are here. Reputation scores plummet. PMs struggle to rapidly adjust to a new era where renters live and work inside their units 24/7. Everyone started using Zoom. Maintenance techs could rarely even go inside units for repairs. Entropy ran rampant. Parents didn't know what to do with their children. Fear reigned. Common spaces closed. Neither tenants nor PMs were happy. Then, in the… Fall 2020 - Summer 2021: This was the boom period for apartments. PMs have solved for the new era, adopting new technologies and new strategies. They also re-open amenity spaces and in-unit maintenance. Hey, foosball in the clubhouse is back. Apartment demand surges, and reputation scores go back up. Late 2021: Apartment occupancy rates hit record highs. PMs again wrestle with on-site staffing shortages. Could ultra-low vacancy and still-robust leasing traffic put so much strain on property managers that reputation scores start to drop again? Nope! Because in… Early 2022: Reputation scores climb back up to new highs again. PMs once again adjust to the rapidly evolving climate, many leaning on early-to-mid phase adoption of centralization tech and management practices. Mid - Late 2022: Apartment reputation scores inch back again. That's when consumers saw peak inflation—including renewal rent increases. At the same time, demand (for all housing types, not just apartments) slowed down and you didn't see the high rent growth that you had. This puts more strain on PMs. Inflation hit everyone, with big price hikes in property insurance, taxes, maintenance, turnover, labor, and utilities. Early 2023: Apartment reputation scores are on the rise again, hitting new highs. Consumer inflation is cooling, while vacancy rates and leasing traffic return to more normal levels. Some semblance of normalcy has finally returned. At the same time, new tech adopted in the pandemic era proves to have long-term benefits to both tenants and managers. In recent years, PMs have focused on resident satisfaction, so it's no coincidence that reputation scores keep improving. Now today, as an investor, changes are that you have a low LOSS TO PURCHASE. What's a “loss to purchase”. Your tenants are leaving to go buy something very often. You, as an investor in either single-family rentals or condos or apartments - you can retain residents right now because it's so hard for them to go off and buy their own starter home. Why's that? Well, it's not just the higher mortgage rates. It's that fact coupled with the fact that credit availability is still tough. As you know, you need to have a lot of good documentation & income & assets to get a loan. That keeps your rent-paying tenant in place. In 2005, we were in the opposite condition. Back then, tenants fled my units. I had a hard time retaining tenants in 2005. Why? Because it was so easy to get a loan, you could just lie about everything on a mortgage application and no one even checked the accuracy. Bloated appraisal values even came flying in. That's why my rental property tenants kept leaving. It seems like it was always to buy a first-time condo back in 2005. Today, you can retain tenants. That's your upside of today's harder housing affordability and stringent lending requirements. So, in this normalizing housing era where tenants have to live in your rental unit longer - because they have no alternative - you can find the properties most conducive to this strategy where thousands of other have created a quick account - at our marketplace: GREmarketplace.com It's not like a big box store. It's more like an organic farmer's market. That's where the good stuff is. So, check back often for new inventory at GREmarketplace.com You're listening to Episode 449 of the GRE Podcast… and of those 449, I think that two of them were quite good! Haha!

Tom welcomes back Simon Mikhailovich. Simon is a contrarian investor, entrepreneur, and the founder of The Bullion Reserve. Simon discusses the counterparty risks that are present in the financial system and how they can lead to bank failures. He notes how the financial system is a series of daisy chains that, if broken, can cause a domino effect and throw the entire system into question. He also notes the 2008 crisis was fifteen years ago, and in that time the Fed has been unable to end its extraordinary policies. This is resulting in a massive amount of debt that would be impossible to service at higher interest rates. Simon believes that this is leading to a radical de-globalization, higher costs, and a reshuffling of the global supply chain that is highly inflationary. In this environment, he suggests that gold may be a better investment than Bitcoin due to its perceived reliability.

The Federal Reserve has hiked rates rapidly over the last 18 months, and yet inflation remains surprisingly high. Perhaps what's most surprising is that even in the most rate sensitive area of the economy -- housing -- the surge in mortgage rates hasn't had a significant cooling effect. Prices have barely budged and even the homebuilders have been booming again after a brief dip in late 2022. So what is happening now? Why did the rate shock fail to derail the industry? And what is the lesson that homebuilders have taken away from this cycle? On this episode, we speak with Zonda chief economist Ali Wolf about why and how the housing market is still broken despite this rate action.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Aucklanders are facing even bigger potential rates rises and service cuts. The council's budget shortfall for the next financial year is expected to reach 375 million dollars, up from $295m. And on top of that there's another $50m in storm-related costs. Councillors attended a closed-door workshop on yesterday morning to receive a budget update, ahead of approving the annual budget next month. Mayor Wayne Brown warned councillors that without savings, that would equate to a rate rise of more than 20 percent, which some have labelled scaremongering. Multiple options are on the table to address the budget gap, including a complete or partial sell-down of the council's $2 billion stake in Auckland Airport, cutting running costs from between $80m-130m and rates rises. Most submitters who gave feedback on the proposed annual budget supported selling at least some airport shares to boost revenue, but wanted fewer funding cuts. To discuss the situation, Manukau Ward councillor Alf Filipaina and Viv Beck, a former Mayoral candidate and CEO of Heart of the City

"The resounding cry from the report is these babies should have the same chance. And they can." A report out today says that globally, we've made no progress at all over the last decade in reducing the number of pregnancies that end with a premature birth. And in Africa - just 1 in 10 of those premature babies will survive, compared to 9 out of 10 in high income countries. So why are premature babies still dying in such numbers? And what can be done to improve the situation? For Africa Daily, Mpho Lakaje speaks to Miriam, a nurse and the mother of two premature babies, and to Professor Joy Lawn, who's worked in neonatal care across Africa all her life - and is the author of the “Born Too Soon” report.

Episode: Reversing Autism with Dr. Stephanie Seneff In this episode of Your Health Reset, host Sinclair Kennally is joined by esteemed researcher Dr. Stephanie Seneff to discuss the possibility of reversing autism. Dr. Seneff explains how the brain is protecting itself from damage by turning off, which is a sort of hibernation. She shares that there are adults who have successfully reversed their autism, which gives hope to others that it can be done. Dr. Seneff encourages parents to figure out what they can do to help their kids. Dr. Seneff is an esteemed researcher on the topic of glyphosate, having published over 100 papers in her lifetime including a few dozen on toxic chemicals. She is the author of 'Toxic Legacy: How the Herbicide Glyphosate is Destroying our Health and the Environment'. The two discuss the autism epidemic, which they are both passionate about addressing, and Dr. Seneff expresses how glad she is that they are tackling the root causes together. The health issues associated with glyphosate are numerous, but it is linked most strongly to autism. Rates of autism have risen drastically in recent years, and many people now know someone who has autism. It is devastating for those affected and the problem is only becoming more pervasive. If you or anyone you have been affected in any way by Autism this is a must-listen podcast for you.

Dr. Stephanie Seneff has joined Sinclair Kennally to discuss how autism can be reversed. She explains that the brain is protecting itself from damage by turning off and that it's a sort of hibernation. There are adults who have successfully reversed their autism as adults, giving others hope that it can be done. She also encourages and informs people on what to do to help their kids. Dr. Seneff is an esteemed researcher on the topic of glyphosate, having published over 100 papers in her lifetime including a few dozen on toxic chemicals. She is the author of 'Toxic Legacy: How the Herbicide Glyphosate is destroying our health and the environment', which took her two years to write. The book is well-received and contains numerous insights. The two discuss the autism epidemic, which they are both passionate about addressing, and Dr. Seneff expresses how she is glad they are tackling the root causes together. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, which is commonly used in gardens and on crops as a weed killer. Glyphosate is extremely toxic, yet the government does not bother to test it despite its ubiquity in the food supply. Mothers can use it on their lawns while their children are playing, and eating it in food is unavoidable. Certified organic food is often free of glyphosate, but even this is not a guarantee as it can still be found in some organic food due to being sprayed on nearby farms. The health issues associated with glyphosate are numerous, but it is linked most strongly to autism. Rates of autism have risen drastically in recent years, and many people now know someone who has autism. It is devastating for those affected and the problem is only becoming more pervasive. This conversation focuses on the large impact of autism, especially as the rates of the condition continue to increase. The speaker shares their experience meeting a 16-year-old girl who had been diagnosed with autism and whose mother had found a way to reverse it. The speaker expresses their sadness at the burden of adult autism, as they know that many of them will not be able to support themselves. They praise the mothers who have taken it upon themselves to research and find ways to help their children. They also point out that the brain seems to be protecting itself from damage by shutting down.

I have a friend who's in the process of developing and marketing this similar medicine because I sent him information about Victor's medicine, my husband's medicine, and he said, a lot of the same stuff. So there's a lot of overlap between ancient Indian medicine and ancient Chinese medicine. I think that's actually a really good option because these are all-natural. These are natural products, not synthetics. I think people who are aware of ivermectin hydroxychloroquine as a way to treat COVID, early treatment for COVID, of course, that's a big controversy as well. But those people are also thinking that you could take those after you've got the vaccine, to take those to help you to deal with the symptoms of the vaccine. And that's probably sort of the same thing that's happening with the vaccine. So you can get essentially long haul COVID and things like glutathione, and vitamin C, there are some natural nutrients that can help, I think, also ayurvedic medicine. And in fact, my husband is Chinese and he learned from some Chinese friends in Taiwan about the herbal medicine that the Taiwanese had developed specifically for COVID-19... And it has like twelve different ingredients that are ancient Chinese medicine ingredients that are specially chosen for the COVID-19 situation. And he's been taking that prophylactically off and on continuously. And then he finally got COVID a couple of months ago and you would expect him to be in the category of people who would be very sensitive to and he has no vaccine, so you would think, oh my God. Let the rest of the cells see what they can do with it. And it's basically spreading the poison all over the body, and that's just really frightening. So it's so clear that this vaccine is far more toxic than any other vaccine. There are 27 times as many reports of virus for the COVID vaccines as for the flu shot. If you normalize by the number of shots that were delivered. So it's a 27-fold increased risk of having an adverse reaction to these COVID vaccines. And sometimes it can kill you. I mean, I know of cases where they start developing symptoms shortly after the second vaccine, and a year later they're dead, or three months later they're dead with a severe case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. I know of cases like that, and I also know of cases of ALS. I get people that send me emails. There were specific kind of stem cell that was four times four-fold reduced in level in the cord blood from these vaccinated women. So that's really quite terrifying to me. That means, of course, also for the baby, right? Because the cord blood is what's supplying, just working with the communication between the mother and the baby and blood supply, not having that defective version of the cord blood is bound to have an impact on the fetus as well. So that's really frightening. And of course, we've got high rates of spontaneous abortion. Studies on mice have shown they just expose the mice to S one which is a piece of the spike protein. It's a toxic piece that has the ace two binding. It has a receptor site, ace two receptor sites, and S one is very toxic all by itself. And S One can get broken off from the spike protein at the fear and cleavage site. So it's got this special segment in it called the fear and cleavage site that is a unique form of the spike protein in the SARS CoV Two that allows it to be cut off into S One and S Two. And S One can just break loose and circulate. So the immune cells in the spleen are busy making spike protein because they've picked up the vaccine and then they're displaying that spike protein on their surface, but they're also releasing it inside exosomes. These are little lipid particles that are the communication network of the body. And those exosomes travel very well along nerve fibers. And so they're traveling along the vagus nerve up to the brain, up to the heart, over to the liver, and all of those organs are becoming inflamed and then getting sick. And you have this myocarditis, which is a nightmare, especially among the male athletes, young male athletes, myocarditis, and that's being caused by the inflammation that's induced by the spike protein. I think that's being delivered in the form of these little exosomes being spat out by those immune cells in the spleen that are furiously making spike protein. They can't stop themselves. It's really, really scary. Subscribe to the Podcast here: Apple | Spotify | Stitcher Connect with Sinclair Kennally: Instagram: @detoxrejuvenation Website: https://detoxrejuvenation.com/
Passport Mommy with Michelle Jerson
Dr. Tanya Altmann, FAAP, a UCLA-trained pediatrician talks with Michelle about the importance of play. Experts agree, play is an integral component to a child's development, as it builds important social and emotional skills. According to a recent study, due to COVID, kids are redefining the way they want to play, including seeking a safe space to play and the permission to say YES to play more. Yet where kids see fun and an opportunity to explore, parents can look at the same thing and see dirty surfaces, limiting kids' freedom to play. This has uncovered a play gap between the way kids want to experience play and how parents are helping to facilitate it. To help close this gap, the FamilyGuard™ Brand is introducing YES, PLAY!, a new initiative that highlights the importance of having a dedicated, clean play space in the home, while giving parents the tools they need to be successful in today's state of family play. Last year over 100,000 Americans died after overdosing on opioids, including prescription pain medications. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Ashley Schmidt is the VP of Regulatory and Compliance at Inmar Intelligence and talks about National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, their drug disposal program and how people can get involved locally.When school breaks for summer, many kids want a break from everything! It's tempting to trade in alarm clocks, homework and gym class for sleeping late, screen time and snacking on sugary summer treats – but it's obviously not in kids' best interest, physically or mentally.The Society of Behavioral Medicine reports that physical activity for children between 6 and 9 years old drops by 53% during summer break, resulting in weight gain and bad eating habits. And the lack of stimulation leads to ‘summer learning loss,' a phenomena where kids lose academic skills, like reading and math.But the struggle to keep kids entertained, engaged and eating well for three months is real for parents! Fortunately, they're getting an assist. Who better to inspire kids to get off the bench and take a swing at adopting healthier habits than a woman who managed the diets of Chicago Cubs players for a decade?Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Dawn Jackson Blatner, has teamed up with Eggland's Best to develop a game plan for motivating kids to stay active and eat healthy during their summer break and beyond! And first base is the YMCA's nationwide Healthy Kids Day® event on April 29th, an opportunity for families to get active, have fun and jumpstart a healthy summer.Kathleen Ashmore is a professional chef and recipe developer. In today's often hectic lifestyle, it can be hard to find better-for-you options while on the go. Smoothie bowls are an on-trend solution to keep you energized while you tackle the day ahead.

Tom welcomes Economist and Wealth Advisor Jonathan Davis back to the show. Jonathan Davis believes we could be repeating the 2008 banking crisis. Central bankers make incorrect statements about the future and have their own agendas often connected to politics. The Fed is surrounded by incapable academics and often behind the curve. Real estate mortgages will have to be reset at higher rates, and unemployment is likely to rise. Interest rates and inflation don't always work together, and there's little value in bonds for long-term investors. Commodities are in a state of collapse, and manufacturing is in contraction globally. China has a large debt and had to implement harsh lockdowns. Western countries are still closing nuclear plants while Japan and China are opening new reactors. The next major risk-off event could be soon and gold will rebound when it happens. He advises investing in funds for specific asset classes rather than individual stocks.
