Mohamed Ibrahim was born in Memphis, Egypt and studied (Ancient Egyptian, Coptic, Islamic) Art and history at Helwan University in Cairo. He has been working as a tour guide and a teacher of Hieroglyphics since 2000. Mohamed's comprehensive knowledge of Ancient Egypt, along with his background in comparative religions and spiritual studies has enabled him to fill lecture halls and conduct a variety of successful tours over the years. When he is not on tour, Mohamed frequently lectures on Egyptian mythology ‐ its spiritual aspects in Egyptian art, and the Ancient Egyptian concept of Gods and Goddesses.Tours: www.earthancients.com/tours
Michael Shermer speaks with Gale Sinatra and Barbara Hofer about the key psychological explanations for science denial and doubt that can help provide a means for improving scientific literacy and understanding — critically important at a time when denial has become deadly. Sinatra and Hofer offer tools for addressing science denial and explain both the importance of science education and its limitations, show how science communicators may inadvertently contribute to the problem, and explain how the internet and social media foster misinformation and disinformation. The authors focus on key psychological constructs such as reasoning biases, social identity, epistemic cognition, and emotions and attitudes that limit or facilitate public understanding of science, and describe solutions for individuals, educators, science communicators, and policy makers. If you have ever wondered why science denial exists, want to know how to understand your own biases and those of others, and would like to address the problem, this book will provide the insights you are seeking.
The Cuban Tody is almost indescribably cute! It's a "must-see" bird for anyone heading for the West Indies. In woodlands throughout the island of Cuba, todies are terrific foragers. In fact, their Puerto Rican cousins have been known to catch up to one or two insects a minute — hunting from dawn to dusk. Their wings make an audible whirring sound, and you may find a tody just by listening for that sound. Learn more at BirdNote.org.

Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant To Say Goodbye To Its Radioactive Waste Just before Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth is expected to reach a historic milestone. All the radioactive fuel that generated electricity—and controversy—for nearly half a century will finally be removed from the reactor building. It will be stored outside in special steel and cement casks. The rare occasion will be celebrated by both supporters and opponents of the plant. But as the decommissioning of Pilgrim proceeds, concern over the long-term safety of the highly radioactive waste continues. Even though Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant stopped producing electricity two years ago, there are still armed guards in watchtowers, surveillance cameras spread over the site, mazes of barbed wire fences and concrete vehicle barriers. Bruce Gellerman, a senior reporter at WBUR in Boston, Massachusetts, explains what the decommissioning process has been like and the future of nuclear power in the Northeast. Dr. Fauci's Life Illustrated In A New Book For Kids Dr. Anthony Fauci became a household name at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, he's the subject of a children's book too: Dr: Fauci: How a Boy From Brooklyn Became America's Doctor. The book takes us back to Fauci's childhood filled with games of baseball in the streets of Brooklyn, bike rides to deliver medications for his family's pharmacy, and his long history of asking questions about how the world works. Author Kate Messner talks to Ira about the surprises she found in Fauci's life story, the value of showing kids that scientists were once children too, and why curiosity is such an important value to teach children. A Charismatic Match-up Between Two Feathered Friends It's the third and final matchup of this fall's Charismatic Creature Carnival, our celebration of six overlooked, and often unfairly maligned, species that deserve a chance under the spotlight. Our audience submitted the carnival candidates, but only one will be crowned the very first inductee into the Charismatic Creature Corner Hall of Fame. This week, our match-up is between two fabulous, feathered creatures: the pigeon and the shoebill stork. Defending the pigeon is Elizabeth Carlen, postdoctoral research fellow at Washington University in St. Louis. Representing the shoebill stork is Judith Mirembe, shoebill researcher and chair of Uganda Women Birders based in Kampala, Uganda.
Ice-Hunting Lunar Rover Robot Gets A Landing Site This week, NASA announced that it had selected a destination for a planned robotic lunar rover called VIPER, the Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover. The mission is planned for launch in 2023, and will rove about the Moon's south pole, mapping the location and concentration of water ice deposits. The plan is for a commercial spaceflight mission to deliver the rover to a spot near the western edge of the Nobile Crater at the Moon's south pole. Sophie Bushwick, technology editor at Scientific American, joins Ira to talk about the mission and other stories from the week in technology and science—including tiny airborne micro-machines, an upcoming voyage for the James Webb Space Telescope, and the discovery of ancient kids' handprints that could be the world's oldest-known art. Congress Is Considering Two Climate Change Bills. What's In Them? President Biden has made many promises about slowing climate change. During his campaign, he pledged to bring the United States' energy sector to zero carbon emissions by 2035. On Earth Day this year, he pledged to reduce total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, and by 100% by 2050. But the key policy changes that will help the country get there remain pending as the relevant bills continue to make their way through Congress. The first is an infrastructure bill that would pledge billions toward cleaner transit and resiliency projects in disaster-stricken communities. But that measure is tied intricately with the fate of a second, $3.5 trillion budget bill that would direct billions of dollars to incentivize coal and natural gas-burning utilities to switch over to renewable energy. If both are to pass without substantial changes, they rely on consensus among the narrow majorities of Democrats in the Senate and the House—neither of which is guaranteed. New York Times reporter Coral Davenport walks through what's in the bills, and why so much is still up in the air even after a summer of climate-driven disasters. Behind The Booster Battle Update 9/24/2021: This week, CDC director Rochelle Walensky overruled the recommendations of an advisory panel and authorized a third dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for the elderly and certain “high risk” individuals, mirroring an earlier FDA decision. In late August, President Biden had said that COVID-19 vaccine booster shots might soon be on the horizon for many Americans. In late August, President Biden said that COVID-19 vaccine booster shots might soon be on the horizon for many Americans. But last Friday, an FDA advisory committee voted to recommend booster doses only for people over age 65—and this Wednesday, the FDA authorized Pfizer boosters for use in the elderly and “high risk” individuals. In the republished article (which you can read on sciencefriday.com) from September 16, written before the FDA review, Kaiser Health News' Arthur Allen and Sarah Jane Tribble examine the backstory behind the debate over boosters, and how leaders from the NIH got out in front of FDA and CDC recommendations.
This is Your Anxiety Toolkit - Episode 203. Welcome back, everybody. Today's episode is all about why it is so important that we expose ourselves to our fears. It's one of the most common questions I get asked from my clients, right? Which is, why do I have to do this hard work? Why? Why of all the treatments is mine the one where I have to face my fears. Because my clients ask this all the time, I wondered whether you needed a quick pep talk just to get you back on track, to remind you why and to motivate you towards facing your fears, because it is probably the most valuable change of behavior that you will do. Welcome back. I am so happy to have you here with me today to talk about that specific topic. Before we get started, I would like to quickly dive in to really set the scene today. We're going to talk about the hard thing, the “I did a hard thing” segment. Today's hard thing is from anonymous, and they have submitted saying: “I haven't drank coffee for over two years since my OCD breakdown because I was too scared. But today, I went to Costa and I had a caramel latte. I got heart palpitations for a few hours, but I sat with it. This is exactly what I'm talking about. So, Anonymous, this is so good. I am so proud of you. This is the work that we do. And I'm going to use Anonymous' example here throughout the podcast to really tie this together. All right, one more thing before we get moving, I want to do a shoutout to the review of the week. This one is from Hahajack, and they said: “This is the best short therapy lesson. This podcast is amazing! I love that episodes are short and succinct. You can't say that you don't have time when episodes are as short as 10 to 30 minutes. If you are struggling with OCD or anxiety, this is a great podcast to listen to for extra therapeutic support in addition to therapy. I treat OCD and I learn so much every time I listen to Kimberley's podcast.” Thank you Hahajack for that amazing review. We are still doing the drive for reviews. So if you can go over to Apple podcast, leave us a review or wherever you listen. Once we hit a thousand reviews, we're giving a free pair of Beats headphones. I cannot tell you how much I love, love, love, love your reviews. Thank you. It helps me help more people reach more people. And that's what I'm here to do. All right, so let's get to the meat of this episode, right? I, in the past – I think it's Episode 86 – did a whole episode called the Science of Exposure and Response Prevention. You can go back and listen to that episode once this is done. We talked about the science behind ERP, and I'm going to be using a lot of that reference to talk about why. Why do we stare fear in the face? Instinctually, when we have fear – I'm just going to give you a quick education here – when we experience fear and our brain sets the signal off to say, “There might be danger, there might be trouble, please be alarmed,” – when the anxiety hits our body and our cognitions, our natural instinct is to remove ourselves from the perceived danger. And that has kept us alive. It is an important process that we humans have and other animals have. It's an important piece that keeps us alive, like I said. The problem is, that behavior, the removal of anxiety, the avoidance of the thing that created the anxiety is only effective if the danger is imminent, not just a thought about a possible danger, right? And so, if, like I said, there was a real thing that was happening in your life that is dangerous, yeah, you may want to remove yourself from it. But if you have a brain that's anxious like mine, where your brain sets off alarms quite often telling you, “Ring, ring, ring, something bad might happen. Ring, ring, ring, the future may have some problems. Ring, ring, ring, you're a bad person,” and so forth – when we instinctually try to remove that, we actually reinforce the fear, the faulty fear. We reinforce the thought, right? And then what we are in a cycle of is thought, reinforcement of thought, thought, reinforcement of thought, thought, reinforcement of thought. The whole reason we choose to face our fear is to break that cycle, right? If you have a thought about imminent danger or threat, and you respond to it as if it's important, your brain will continue to perceive it as an important and an imminent threat. If you have a thought about something that is imminent and dangerous, and you don't respond to it as if it's imminent and dangerous, your brain starts to learn not to set that alarm every time you have that thought. Your brain learns not to ring the alarm bell and send out all those anxiety hormones throughout your body. Right? And that's how you break the cycle. And we do that by – if you just happen to have the thought, you could do that by being aware that you're having the thought, observing the thought, and then not engaging in the avoidant or reactive behavior, right? That's hard, right? It's doable, but it's hard, right? Because you have to be aware and you have to be very mindful and you have to have a lot of motivation in that moment. I still strongly encourage you to try that and practice it every single day. But what we can do to really help that process is, instead of waiting for the thought and then practicing not just engaging in that thought as if it's real and imminent, what you can do is purposely expose yourself and purposely bring on those thoughts by facing your fears. Right? Think of it like, you wouldn't just show up to a football game or a tennis game or a track and field event and just run and hope that your body will keep you going. No, we don't do that. When we know there's an event happening, we train for it. In a situation, we simulate the scenario, right? So we simulate the track and field event, or we simulate the soccer practice so that you can practice strengthening those muscles. This is why it's so important that we choose to expose ourselves to our fears on purpose. You're training your muscles to respond differently. When it does have a thought, your brain's going, “Oh, she actually purposely had that thought yesterday. So maybe I don't need to set off the alarm bells this time. Maybe it's not as imminent as I originally perceived it to be.” That is why it is so important that you expose yourself to your fears. Now, like I said, there's lots of science behind that. You can go back and listen to the episode – it's number 86 – to get a little bit more, right? But the thing here to remember, and I always try to remind you, is it is hard. This isn't easy, right? So what you want to do is, as you go to face your fear and expose yourself to your fear on purpose, you want to keep in mind for yourself your own why. Why would I purposely do this hard thing? We could use the example here of the hard thing, right? They wanted to have a caramel latte. They don't want to feel uncomfortable, but they want the outcome. They want the delicious, warm caramel latte, right? For you, be really clear on what you want to get back by facing your fear. Sometimes it's more time with family, it's to be able to get to work and not have to manage mental compulsions with work. For some people, it's to be able to get through school without having to double-check your work. For some people, if you have an eating disorder, it might be so you can be with friends and have freedom around food. If it's panic disorder, it might be so that you can do the things you want to do without panic-making your choices, right? If it's hair pulling and skin picking, it might be so that you can do your normal grooming without engaging in these behaviors. Right? So there's so many reasons why we would practice facing your fear. And I want to give you this call to action, which is, get really clear on what you want, how you want your life to be. Identify what things you're going to need to face in order to get that life. And then go and face those fears. That's exposure and response prevention in a nutshell. In a nutshell, and it might feel really silly. You might be thinking, oh, I've got to do so many steps just to be able to get out the door or go to school, or to be able to have a dinner party or even get out of bed. Okay, that's all right. Break it down into small baby steps. For every time you face your fear, you're strengthening that muscle of being able to tolerate discomfort. It's so important. It's so empowering. It's why I always say, it's a beautiful day to do hard things, because it's a total flip flop on what your natural brain wants to do, your instinctual brain, which is, it's a beautiful day to run away from hard things. So really remember that. It is a beautiful day to do hard things. Really think about what you want to be able to do with your life. Write down what fears you'd need to face to do that, and then go and face those fears. That's what I'm going to encourage you to do. That being said, I, myself, am about to embark on a very, very hard thing, which is the exciting news. I'm almost done with this episode. I'm going to drop you my exciting news, which is the book, the Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD comes out literally next week. You can go to wherever you buy your books to get it. It's called the Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD. It is literally the example of facing your fears. I have quite a large degree of anxiety about this, but I am going to face it every step of the way. That being the case, because I am so insistent on facing my anxieties about it, sort of feels like I'm putting myself out there a lot – next week, I am going to announce an exciting, what would we say celebration of the book. It is going to be a month-long celebration. I hope you come along for the ride. In order to really benefit from this celebration, you will need to sign up for the newsletter because I will be sending tons of resources for you. I'm going to try and get you to engage in self-compassion like you have never done before. I want to use this as an opportunity to teach you and deep dive into the practice of self-compassion like you've never done before. You can go at your own pace. I strongly encourage you to sign up for the newsletter. You can go to cbtschool.com to sign up and it will give you tons of information. But next week's episode, I'm going to tell you all about it, and I am so excited. So, so, so excited. If you want a ton more information, you can go and follow me on Instagram. I'm going to be doing a ton of lives, talking about the book, reading through the book, showing you some of the exercises. I'm just so excited. I'm almost a little too excited. I'm probably going to burn out midway, but I'm going to do my best not to do that. But please do stick around. I cannot wait to share that with you. I will give you all the information next week. Yeah, so excited. And go ahead and get the book if that's something that would be beneficial for you. Well, that is all I have to say for today. That is the core of this podcast – facing your fears compassionately, willingly, in a joyful way. Even I encourage you to make it in any way possible, joyful. That is what I want you to do, and I'm really so excited to hear all of the hard things that you guys are doing because that's what we're here for. If that's the one big impact I can make in my career, I'm going to be a happy camper. All right. I am sending you so much love. I hope you are well. It is a beautiful day to do hard things. I love you so much. Take care of yourself and I will see you for a very exciting episode next week.The Self-Compassion Workbook for OCD is here! Check the link HERE for more information.

We're exploring a part of the world that not much is known about—in fact, you could be one of the people who help us understand and learn more about this very important, and very large, part of our earth. The land underneath the ocean is as varied and interesting as the terrain up on dry land—with mountains and canyons, plains and forests. (That's right, forests! There are kelp forests where the kelp is as much as 150 feet tall!) In this episode, what's known--and unknown--about the bottom of the ocean. How deep IS the deepest part of the ocean? And how was the Mariana Trench formed? We get answers from Jamie McMichael-Phillips and Vicki Ferrini of Seabed 2030, a global collaboration designed to map the sea floor, by 2030. Resources Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript Seabed 2030 Visual: What Lurks In The Depths Of the Ocean? (CBC Kids) “How deep is the deepest part of the ocean?” –Freya, 8, Wellington, New Zealand The deepest part of the ocean is the Challenger Deep, 11,034 meters in the Mariana Trench. It's about seven miles deep! How did the trench get so deep? The same processes that formed canyons and mountains on dry land also formed the depths of the ocean and the islands that peek above the water. In the case of the Mariana Trench, it was formed by the process of subduction—when one tectonic plate slides under another. A tectonic plate is a gigantic piece of the earth's crust and the next layer below that, called the upper mantle. These massive slabs of rock are constantly moving, but usually very slowly, so a lot of changes to the earth's structure take place over a long time. But sometimes something like an earthquake can speed that process up. A trench is formed when one plate slides or melts beneath another one. The Mariana Trench is the deepest trench in the world—farther below sea level than Mount Everest, is tall!

What's the right menopause exercise intensity? Life can be intense right now. This podcast is as the title suggests, about the exercise intensity for optimal aging for women in menopause. It's not just regurgitating position statements and guidelines written inclusive of all ages and both genders. It takes into account your unique journey, as well as the collective needs of women in menopause knowing the trend of hormones during peri to post menopause transition (and beyond). Our episode sponsors This episode is sponsored by STRONGER, my 12-week strength training program designed for women in menopause, and by the Flipping50 Advanced Fitness Specialist for fitness professionals. I'll put links to both in the show. Be sure to visit the website if you need a strength training program proven to work for women in menopause, or you're a fitness professional who needs better solutions for her clients. You're Making History You're part of the first generation of adults who have been exercising the majority of your adult life. You influence 85% of buying decisions in your household. But not just yours. You influence 3 generations. What you learned when you began to exercise all those years ago is not what will serve you now. You do not have the same hormones you had (which together with your lifestyle habits influenced the body composition and metabolism you have right now) Science has had 40 years to prove itself wrong or improve and using what worked then even for a 20-year-old, wouldn't be the optimal way to exercise now We do not live in the same world or have the same toxins or stressors What you learn from any living human with a PC who chooses to post online or author their own self-published book, blog, or videos may not be based on science about women just like you. Can Instagram influencers in their 20s and 30's inspire you? Maybe. You'll tell me. Can they give you the science of how to exercise optimally in your 40's, 50's, 60's and 70s? Unlikely. About YOU or About Them? Even early 40-something trainers who are not yet aware of the hormonal differences during menopause that influence and are influenced by exercise, will fail you. Until, at least, they begin to experience it. Or they've spent years training women beyond 40. Fitness professionals are often first motivated to become active themselves because they want to look, feel, or perform a certain way. (Which is hardly personal training if they're only sharing what is working at the moment, for them). But the way of one is not the way of masses. There is no one way for masses. There is a blueprint. No two women, for instance, experience the same menopause. Some symptoms are common among women. Yet, some women experience some of the 34 symptoms others never even know exist. HIIT and Menopause While HIIT can produce results, too much of it without proper recovery can lead to overtraining. “Too much” BTW is far less than you think it is. [45 minutes a week – a week – after which injury rates climb dramatically, especially a concern for midlife women.] For this reason, it is important to include other types of metabolic conditioning. However, what is often recommended is not always best, either. Steady-state training (your 80's exercise friend) features a high volume of work to enhance aerobic capacity. The red flag there? “High volume” of work. For women in midlife amidst hormone fluctuation (and beyond) steady state for too long too often is the most likely to cause cortisol issues. Move more, yes. Take walks, but not with a “must get in target heart rate range” slant. Avoid “moderate intensity” exercise for the most part. You'll also be told, by some very popular brands today, even led by soon-to-be midlife women, that exercise at a low intensity burns more fat. (A small lesson in fat burning is necessary here). Burning Fat in Menopause Here's what the studies show. Visceral belly fat is most influenced by High Intensity Interval Training. Second to that, is lifting weights, the heavier the better. Muscles must reach temporary muscular fatigue. Old: Get moderate intensity exercise. New: Get moderate amounts of low and high intensity exercise. Let's describe all the tools in your intensity arsenal. Low-intensity interval training (LIIT) uses low- to moderate-intensity intervals combined with periods of active rest to improve the efficiency of the cardiorespiratory system to deliver oxygen to working muscles. [Pete McCall's new book, Ageless Intensity, introduces these intensity labels to you well. I interpret them here for you with more commentary on how they influence menopause fitness and the midlife woman. If at the time of this post Pete's Flipping50 podcast, isn't yet published, it soon will be.] Variable (duration) interval training (VIT) alternates between short, intermediate, and long periods of work to challenge the body to work efficiently for different lengths of time. In addition, variable-intensity interval training (VIIT) alternates between periods of low-, moderate-, and high-intensity exercise to provide an overload. For instance, in advanced interval workouts for our Flipping50 members, I will include sets of HI with short LI recovery, longer duration HI intervals with moderate recovery, and long moderate intensity intervals with short LI recovery. The following is an example of combining VIT and VIIT. (VIIT is generally present in any HIIT workout that includes alternating high and low intensity intervals since it also includes a progressive warm up. Interval Training Workout (treadmill) Warm Up: 1:00 LI walking 4mph :30 MI jog 6mph 1:00 LI walking 4mph 1:00 MI jog 6.5mph 1:00 LI walk 4mph 1:30 MI jog 7mph 1:00 LI walk 4mph 1:00 MI run 7.5mph 1:00 LI walk 4mph 1:00 MI run 7.5mph Main: :30 HI run 9mph 1:00 LI walk 3.5mph Repeat 8x Cool Down: 2:00 3.5mph 8:00 4mph To modify for yourself: Change speeds to begin with your “easy walking speed.” Adjust to a moderate level and progressively climb during warm up intervals. This interval set manipulates speed. It can be performed doing a vary of exercise modes. Substitute walking only, biking, elliptical, or swimming for instance. You can use the same time sets and try using hills or incline or resistance added to elliptical while maintaining speed. Interval Training, AKA, Metabolic Conditioning Not all metabolic conditioning training has to be high intensity; using a combination of HIIT, SST, LIIT, VIT, and VIIT to vary work intervals between different levels of intensity and time durations can help ensure that you are not using any one energy system more than another when you exercise. “Current exercise programming has two inherent problems: some movements are performed too frequently or with too much intensity and movements are performed too infrequently or with too little intensity.” Common injuries like tendinitis or impingement syndrome that restrict joint motion are more likely as a result of doing the same exercises too often. For midlife women, who have a higher frequency of injury this is an important lesson to learn, before it occurs. It's also important to realize, when you begin an exercise program, injuries often surface. Not because the exercise caused them, necessarily. But because a chronic repetitive stress you've had there is now stressed just enough more, that it makes you aware of it. The Question of Safety In his book, McCall echoes what I and a few other voices have been saying for a decade. “Not only is High Intensity Interval Training and Strength Training with heavy weights or power, safe, it is necessary to mitigate the effects of aging, and any losses of muscle and bone that has occurred due to menopause.” Lady, you've never needed intense exercise more in your life. You will until you're not waking up in the morning. If you're not exercising, start. But Not Just Your Mama's Exercise Well to be honest, this is totally dependent on your birth order. My mama is 95 and any exercise she did only happened later in her life. She enjoyed walking with friends but it wasn't a regular habit. She and I began walking while I was still home before college. I clearly kept going. She did not. For her in young adulthood, there was no need for exercise. There were chores. Life was active then. Regular exercise at low to moderate levels provides numerous health benefits. There is however a limit to what it can do. For optimal mitochondria, ATP, strength and efficiency in activities of daily living and avoidance of: Muscle loss (sarcopenia) Bone loss (osteoporosis & osteopenia) Fat increase (Obesity) Combinations of above (Osteosarcobesity) …use of strength to muscular fatigue, the addition of power when ready, heavy weights is the most powerful non-pharmaceutical tool available to you. You may recall a recent post quoting a scientific study relating this same message. This isn't opinion. This is now science. If you're not lifting weights, you're choosing to age older, fatter, and sicker. Blunt. But truthful.

I know you have a lot of options for what to listen to, and I'm glad you chose The Brainy Business. Especially because (as you'll hear about on today's episode), due to the paradox of choice, having too many options and decisions can leave people paralyzed instead of empowered. That paralysis can make it so people don't make any decision at all, so you stick with the status quo of scrolling Instagram or playing a game on your phone. With over 2 million podcasts out there to compete with (plus all the YouTube channels, Netflix, and other streaming services, music options like Spotify and Pandora), plus games and email, and...well you get the idea...There are a lot of options out there that could have made tuning in a very complicated choice. In today's episode, I will tell you all about the paradox of choice: what it is, and why it matters for you in life and in business (including some tips for creating and presenting options to your current and potential customers). Show Notes: [00:06] Today's behavioral economics foundations episode is about the paradox of choice. [03:02] As I mentioned in the introduction, the paradox of choice is a term and concept popularized by Barry Schwartz, whose book and popular TED talk have been shared around the world. [04:42] When presented with too many choices (like we have in most societies today) people become paralyzed, stressed, and feel stuck. It can cause mental anguish and regret. Some choices are good, but too much and we are definitely worse off. [05:24] The really important thing to know is that adding some choice is important. Because we humans can't value one-off items, having at least some choice and comparison helps us to make a decision and feel good about it, but too many and we get overwhelmed. [07:15] When there are too many choices, our brains get overloaded. [09:41] It is easier to stick with what we have always done than to look for something that may or may not be better. [11:42] Your subconscious is dealing with this sort of letdown constantly. It can get very taxing over time and it's no wonder our brains rebel at the idea of evaluating too many options. [13:14] In a world where there is always another option, always a list of potential matches and the feeling that (much like the pair of jeans) perfection is “just one search away”...it can be hard to settle even when the choice is something you would be incredibly happy with. That constant thought of “what if” can be too much for many to bear. [13:53] Anticipated regret can have a huge impact on behavior. We want to choose wisely and, frustratingly, this pursuit of perfection (or even just a little bit better) can cause us to make worse decisions. [15:02] The important thing to know is that while it seems like lots of choice and infinite options would make us happier (increasing our freedom and wellbeing to use the terms from earlier) that just isn't how it works. [17:12] A maximizer is always looking for the best of the best. They want to make sure that they choose whatever is objectively the best there is every single time. That anyone else could look at and know that it is conclusively “the best choice”. [17:28] Satisficers are people who find something that is “good enough” and feel satisfied with that choice. Once satisficers find something they are happy with, they are good to go and don't necessarily dwell on “what might have been” too much. Even if there was a better option out there you could have made, you are subjectively happy and therefore at peace with the decision. [20:04] For maximizers (like my husband), these details are vital pieces of information needed to make a decision, and for satisficers (like me), it is just too much to think about. [22:45] The first tip is to choose when to choose. If you only save the big evaluation for the really important stuff, it will help you have that mental capacity when you need it and not be so stressed and overwhelmed with the small stuff. [24:07] Don't waste a bunch of mental energy on decisions that don't matter. Be happy with good enough whenever you can, so you can have more mental energy when you need it. [24:22] The next tip, which is to become a chooser, not a picker. [25:27] The next tip is to satisfice more and maximize less. As you just heard, satisficers are happier, less stressed, less regretful, and so much more. Good enough is often good enough. [25:58] Think about the costs of missed opportunities. In short, you should look for the balance of thinking of missed opportunities. [26:20] Next is to make your decisions nonreversible. If you aren't able to “what if” you are more likely to be happier with a choice you made because you won't dwell on it. [26:31] Practice an attitude of gratitude. There are lots of studies that find we are happier and better off when we appreciate what we have. Be grateful for everything you have in your life [27:05] Regret less. If you don't think about choices you have made after the fact and don't allow regret to control you, it will allow you to be happier overall. [27:19] Anticipate adaptation. We naturally adapt to any situation – plan accordingly to avoid constantly chasing the next high. [27:53] Control expectations. When there are too many choices, the expectations for something to be perfect are far too high, and because nothing can really live up to that standard, you end up with a recipe for always being disappointed with items not meeting unrealistic expectations [28:21] Curtail social comparison. What is your happiness worth and how do things change if you add that into your evaluation? Eliminating social comparisons can help with that. [29:11] His last tip is to learn to embrace constraints. Limiting options and reducing possible choices can help you to fulfill these other tips on the list. Embrace the idea of constraints and set up some firm rules for yourself to follow around choice. You will be surprised about how they help your mental state. [30:30] NOW, my tips for business applications (which are different than on an individual level. First, is to know that people are generally overwhelmed with all the decisions they are having to make every day. [31:00] You also want to really consider what choice they are making and what the defaults are. [33:15] When someone asks for your recommendation – give it, and don't provide more than two options. Be enthusiastic about it, explaining a little of why you like it to prime them for excitement. [34:56] To summarize, you are going to limit the options you present and show that you are the expert (and did the heavy lifting for them) by making recommendations and helping work with those herding instincts by including some social proof. [35:25] If you implement your social proof and relativity and structure the decision well, it can make a decision easier without people getting so overwhelmed that they walk out. They can feel like there are a lot of options, but you can still nudge and guide them along the way to reduce the number of decisions and make them easier. I'm calling this the “illusion of choice.” [37:42] Consider the customer experience – who is searching? What problem are they solving? What is the best solution? How can you make it obvious that it is the best choice for most people to help them decide?

This week we review a recent work on the use of bivalirudin on outcomes of pediatric VAD patients. We speak with Dr. Caroline Carly Heyrend of Primary Children's Hospital in Utah about a recent work she co-authored on time in therapeutic range for this agent in children with VAD's. How does bivalirudin work differently than heparin and what are the theoretical benefits or disadvantages of this agent in comparison with unfractionated heparin? Why are thrombotic complications still common amongst those with pediatric VAD's even when anticoagulation is maintained appropriately? What are the factors at work that make safe anticoagulation so difficult in this complex and fragile group of patients? Dr. Heyrend provides the pharmacist's perspective this week.

Lazlo's worried he's being a bad dad because he didn't make dinner for the boys until 9pm. I think 9pm should be the default dinner time for any person under 65. *There's a mom on tik tok who lost her teeth during pregnancy. Now she gets millions of views demonstrating how she makes herself over. The transformation is really something to behold and we all agree that it's cool. We don't all agree on whether or not someone in her position should divulge this information on a first date. Jeriney says there's absolutely no reason this woman should have to divulge anything about her looks to anyone at any time. This gives Lazlo an idea. He wants to start renting Lambo's and multi-million dollar mansions so he can make a good first impression on the ladies. Julia says Lazlo's comparison is garbage which leads to a full blown father/daughter fight. *Doomscrolling! COVID boosters for seniors, still no sign of Brian Laundrie, Biden says no more horses at the border, Reno says no more permitless whips downtown (?), a high school football player dies from head injuries, white water fountains, and nipples turning black and falling off. *Patrick Mahomes' brother tossed water on Ravens fans at the game last weekend. Do you hide any family members from your coworkers or are you the sibling being sent to stay at the cabin in the woods? *Science has proven several random factors can seriously impact your success as an adult. Oh, and it turns out everything we thought we knew about the popular kids in high school was wrong. *Americans waste a lot of money on a lot of things but how many of you bought beef liver pills in bulk this month? *Welp, bout time I hit the old dusty trail. I hope you manage to mosey on over here again tomorrow. Until then..... -Everybody Wang Chung!!!! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

In this episode we are going to talk about the importance of injecting a little adventure into our lives. C.S. Lewis once said, "Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny." Sure, adventure can mean climbing peaks in Peru or Nepal… but there are other ways that we can inject a little novelty and adventure in our daily lives… even if you live in the burbs, like I do! In fact, I make the case using some good ol' research-backed arguments, but I also share a way that I've been experiencing a little “adventure” lately. And it doesn't cost me a thing… but it's been a way that I've been finding some rest and restoration. And as you'll hear… it's also been teaching me A LOT about life and business. Check it out… and then join me in finding a little “adventure” no matter where you live! EPISODES MENTIONED: Ruth Soukup | Surprising Secrets For Living the Good Life - (click here) Beating the "MEH" with LAURA SANCHEZ-GREENBERG - www.mitchmatthews.com/308 A Hiro's Journey - mitchmatthews.com/322 The Rest vs. Restoration Experiment - mitchmatthews.com/330 MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE: For some ADVENTURE might mean a trip to the big city... or it might be going to the other side of the planet. "Some journeys take us far from home. Some adventures lead us to our destiny." - CS Lewis Amelia Earhart once said, "Adventure is worthwhile in itself." "You can't define adventure... and what it means to you... until you've wrestled with it. True adventure happens beyond what you might think is safe... or obtainable. That's where you see miracles happen. Adventure is the distance between the present and the fulfillment of your dreams! And how you navigate the "in-between" is the great unknown.” - Clay Croft - Creator of the Expedition Overland (Find out more here: www.xoverland.com) BUT... you might be saying... "THAT IS NOT ME!!! I LIVE in the burbs... I have a house filled with kids, schedules, dogs, cats and a bird... I can't be traipsing around the globe looking for ADVENTURE!!!" I get it... I'm right there with you!!! Here's a brief history of “Adventure and me”: I grew up a scared kid... but I learned a motto... "I may be scared... but I'm going to do it anyway!" Or... a shorter version is... "Do it scared!" I grew up afraid of heights... but at the same time... I've climbed the tallest mountains in Montana and some of the tallest in Colorado! I was afraid of leaving home... so I hated my first summer camp experience... BUT when I got older... I moved to England at 18 and went back when I was 20. When my bride and I lived in Montana (two places)... we'd camp in the mountains countless weekends… then we had cubs... and decided to move back closer to family. We first spent a year in Chicago... and then we landed back in Des Moines and we've been here for over 20 years! ADVENTURE NOW: As a result… I live in a suburb of a moderate sized city... in a state where the highest elevation is 1,670 feet. Literally, it's: Hawkeye Point Hawkeye Point which is the highest natural point in Iowa at 1,670 feet (510 m). It is approximately 4.5 miles (7.2 km) north of Sibley on the eastern side of SR 60 and approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 km) south of the Iowa-Minnesota state border. My favorite part is the directions say, “The high ground lies 100 feet (30 m) due south of an old silo.” But remember: ADVENTURE isn't a location... it's a mindset! Also remember… "Stay curious. It will lead to a life of adventure!" - Mitch Matthews It's sooooo important... and this is backed up by SCIENCE!!! I'm betting you remember Episode 308 - Beating the "MEH" with LAURA SANCHEZ-GREENBERG. www.mitchmatthews.com/308 (More from Laura below.) In that episode, we talked about how novelty is critical. Mixing things up. Trying new things. Stretching yourself. Growing. So sure... if you can go climb a mountain... DO it!!! BUT if you're in a suburbs in the flat lands… (like me)... you need to find other ways to experience adventure! DEFINING ADVENTURE For OUR purposes, let's define adventure as: Staying curious Pursuing novel experiences Stretching... growing... putting yourself in situations from time to time... where you might actually fail. Yvon Chouinard... rock climber, world adventurer and founder of Patagonia once said, "It's not truly adventure until something goes wrong." You might get some of that at work... or at home. You might say... I've got a teenager... stuff goes wrong all the time! LOL! BUT seriously... what if you introduced some adventure WITH your teenager. What if? My Invitation: Pursue some adventure... Try something new Do something where you might fail Stay curious. Walk in awe. See where it takes you! Dreaming BIGGER... thinking BETTER and doing MORE is all about living an amazing life and that's what I want from you... if you're living in Nepal... or Fiji... NYC… or a really nice little suburb. Adventure is out there... we just have to find it. Amen? RESOURCES: In the episode, I mention that past DREAM THINK DO guest Laura Sanchez-Greenberg had provided some SCIENCE and RESEARCH to back up today's episode… so I wanted to provide it here… in her own words. She shared... “Novelty and “sustainable happiness” studies suggest that doing new things is good for our well-being and some authors have suggested that fulfilling our need for novelty is a basic requirement for optimal functioning (Gonzalez-Cutre et al 2016). Research here tied to the self-determination theory (SDT is the so-often-attributed to Daniel Pink's Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose triangle from his book “Drive” – this model is actually research by Deci and Ryan (1980, 2000) which Pink translated.) The research notes that novelty is a basic tenant of being self-determining. Without novelty, then you wouldn't know if you were self-determining as it would just be more of the same. In simpler terms: How do you know if you are choosing for yourself (autonomy), if you are competent (mastery) if nothing changes? Some suggested things to read: The Importance of Novelty » Brain World (brainworldmagazine.com) The Role of Novelty and Adaptation in Well-being - The Positive Psychology People Laura continues… “I'd say pointing to Barbara Fredrickson's work “Positivity” is also good. The bottom line is, although there is novelty specific research, the word itself takes on all the research that's there and gives it name. When we change our view, our brain activates, it learns, it absorbs. So the important role that awe plays in happiness, that nature plays in happiness, importance of learning in happiness… all of these are related to novelty – we change our environment, learn something new, feel awe… all novelty. So “novelty” is a catch all for so much of the research (I use the word as a shortcut). Super nerdy research: Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology - Google Books (Chapter 34) Acts of Kindness and Acts of Novelty Affect Life Satisfaction: The Journal of Social Psychology: Vol 150, No 3 (tandfonline.com) In the Suburbs… grab your lip smacker… put out a bird feeder and let that Cardinal surprise you; better yet, let the seeds call it to you in winter where the red pops on the snow background (they don't migrate). Smell coffee.

Music producer So Wylie began transforming bird calls and songs into musical “bird beats” during the pandemic. The first bird beat she made was inspired by Rocky, a Northern Saw-whet Owl that was found bundled up in the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in 2020. Since then, the Boreal Owl, Barn Owl and Eastern Screech-Owl have been featured in her upbeat tunes. Learn more at BirdNote.org.
In this episode Keta & Dani of the East Oakland Collective and I talk about the changes they're creating in Oakland to increase accessibility. We all know there's no damn reason for communities of color to be under-resourced other than whyteness doing what it does! And Dani let us know that no community, even if it's underdeveloped, ever goes unmapped or unplanned. So what can we do about houselessness, transportation, and making sure our communities thrive? How can we be the ones to stand up for our cities to increase access? Bc let's face it, we've always known WE gotta take care of US.! How can we create what we want to see and get the resources for it? Listen, learn, and get involved! ABOUT WEEZE Louiza Doran, known and referred to as Weeze, is a cis-het Amazigh* female-identifying human who uses she/her/they/them pronouns. She's known as a coach, podcast host, advocate, agent of change, strategist, and educator (to name a few) but is ultimately a compassionate provocateur that is out to help folks uncover their path of possibility. ABOUT KETA & DANI Marquita “Keta” Price (she/her/Goddess), aka “The Hood Planner,” is a third-generation East Oakland native serving as the Director of Urban and Regional Planning for The East Oakland Collective. Keta's formal passion for urbanism came about during recreational research on how gentrification has impacted low-income Black “hoods” across the nation. As director, Keta is the lead on several East Oakland neighborhood & transportation planning projects, participates in the development of local urban and regional planning, and holds the city of Oakland accountable to equitable zoning and land use in East Oakland. Her early activism and care for community is rooted at Merritt College, where she served as the Vice President of The Black Student Union, President of the Kem(istry) Club, President of the Associated Students of Merritt College (ASMC), and served as a Student Trustee of the Peralta Community College School District. Keta's initial goals were to restore the intellect and militancy of Merritt's student government. Seeded by Chairman Bobby Seale and other former Black Panthers, ASMC focused on leveraging the institution's resources to address the socioeconomic issues from the flatlands prohibiting students from thriving academically. Keta's political and social goals pulled her away from studying chemistry to deeply exploring how societies, communities, and cities are planned, designed and constructed. As a chemistry major, Keta received an achievement award for the completion of The Center for Educational Partnerships NIH-UCB internship. During this project Keta synthesized pro-fluorophores used for live-cell RNA imaging. Keta also received recognition and commendation from the California Legislature Assembly and State of California Senate and the Alameda County Board of Supervisors for her student advocacy work with the Tobacco-less Club at Merritt College. Keta has an Associates of Science in Mathematics and Natural Science. When the opportunity presents itself, Keta plans to further her education in Urban Studies, Data Analysis and Design. Danielle "Dani" Dynes is a dedicated community planner who was born in East Oakland and raised in West Oakland. As a planner, she focuses on the present needs of residents and while creating strategies to deal with the challenges of the future. She works to bring more resources and infrastructure to Oakland and ensure we have safer, healthier, and well-connected communities moving forward. Danielle has a B.A. in Urban Studies and Planning from San Francisco State University. She has previously worked at the Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) in their Planning and Project Development section. Several of Danielle's projects at OakDOT prioritized equitable and culturally relevant change in the East Oakland community. She facilitated events around the 90th Avenue Scraper Bike Way and conducted community outreach for the East Oakland Mobility Action Plan. She also helped manage Sustainable Transportation Planning grants while interning at the California Department of Transportation. Before she studied planning Danielle taught website design and visual communication to students in Oakland and Richmond. In 2016 she was honored as a Youth Development Fellow by Coro, a civic leadership training organization. In her leisure, Danielle enjoys photography, crafting, hiking, and gardening. IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT How EOC's founder, Candace Elder, said hell nah to the ways her community was deteriorating due to gentrification and decided to address issues like pollution + houselessness. The fuckery with folks seeing systemic challenges and thinking it's random or beyond our control, but it's not! We knowwww this! Why disparities and underdeveloped communities even exist, when communities are always mapped out and planned. How the white flight outta of East Oakland and left the whole area for dead!. There's no designated funding to give to communities to plan their own communities surprise surprise, so a lot of that grunt work falls on nonprofits, grassroots people, and individuals to fill that gap. How a lack of economics, transportation, and accessibility affects communities + what we can do to help! CALL TO ACTION Support the East Oakland Mobility Action Plan. Get involved with the Mobility 4 All program, their new clean mobility fellows, and an upcoming project funded by the STEP Grant to explore the feasibility of implementing a zero-emission bus shuttle to bridge access to nearby local/regional park-The Martin Luther King Jr. Shoreline.

On this episode, we are joined by PGY1 resident, Dr. Kristen Ingold, PharmD. Kristen came on the show to discuss her series of training videos designed to help students prep for their residency/fellowship interviews. She virtually interviewed 20-25 residency program directors (RPDs) from across the United States. Each RPD was asked the same list of questions. After collecting all of the interview videos, she took each video and spliced them together to form topic-specific videos that range from 5-15 minutes in duration. Topics include items that RPDs look for on a student's curriculum vitae, GPA, choice of electives, resident characteristics, appropriate follow-up, social media, and more. There are 40 videos total (8 topics for 5 different regions of the United States). The best part about this video series is the price.....COMPLETELY FREE!

I think rather than getting lost in it and making decisions from where I am, it's honouring exactly where I am. Feeling the feelings and being really connected and tuned in to them, and also trusting all paths and knowing clarity is always on the other side. It has given me perspective and presence in a way that I've been able to move through a little bit more sustainably. Thoughts on Breathing It's part of my meditation practice and part of Kundalini. I also always am inspired to connect to breath work with my partner who is always taking a deep breath and letting it out and that is how to reconnect to the moment. Suggested Resources Book: The Surrender Experiment by Michael A. Singer App: Check out Emily Fletcher and Ziva Meditation Bullying Story It can be pretty vulnerable to put yourself out there in the world we live in right now. So much of my work is putting myself out there all the time. Mindfulness has been a really necessary tool because I haven't faced so much of this; crazy messages and such. A lot of people around me are receiving this all the time so I think that it's been a real lesson in just having perspective and not getting lost and taking it all personally. I can just step back and see it for what it is. My biggest lesson is putting myself out there but being grounded enough in myself that I'm able to handle things as they come and see them for what they are.

Most of us lead busy, hectic lives and we have to face the fact that we're doing to die with a long to-do list. “Ain't nobody got time for that,” after all. So it's no surprise that when life throws you a curveball and your time is suddenly strapped, your training might have to take a backseat. Other times it's not obligations that get in the way, but perhaps you just want to spend less time in the gym so that you have more time and energy to devote to other pursuits. Or maybe you're someone who's just getting started in the gym and doesn't want to devote hours every week to getting fit. No matter the reason, the good news is you can easily maintain (or even gain) muscle and strength with surprisingly little training. In this podcast, I interview Dr. Brad Schoenfeld, who recently released a narrative review of what the scientific literature says about time-efficient training. That is, Brad and his colleagues evaluated the research to determine the most effective way to strength train with the least amount of time. Brad practically needs no introduction, but in case you're not familiar with him, he's an internationally renowned fitness expert, author, educator, lecturer, and researcher, who's published over 200 peer-reviewed research articles on exercise and sports nutrition. He's truly an authority on all things related to body composition, hypertrophy, fat loss, and natural bodybuilding. So, if you're someone who wants to learn how to get the most out of your training with the least amount of time in the gym, or you're an optimizer who wants to train as efficiently as possible, definitely listen to this podcast! Timestamps: 7:23 - How do you maximize muscle growth while minimizing time spent in the gym? 8:22 - How little training can you do while still making gains? 12:54 - What's the minimum amount of training to maintain muscle you've already built? 17:48 - How do you program a minimalist routine? How do you get the best results with minimal time in the gym? 20:59 - How many sets should you do? 24:22 - How do you count the direct and indirect volume with multi-joint exercises? 28:48 - What movements should you include in your routine? 40:38 - How long should you rest between sets? 46:35 - How should you pick the number of reps to do on a particular exercise? 48:52 - How should you use drop sets? 49:46 - How do you count drop sets?

In this episode, we're going to demystify concepts such as: self actualization, personal growth, authenticity, and bringing your “whole self” to the table. Scott Barry Kaufman is a cognitive scientist and humanistic psychologist. He is the founder and director of the Center for the Science of Human Potential at the University of Melbourne's Centre for Wellbeing Science. He also hosts the #1 psychology podcast in the world - The Psychology Podcast. And he is the author of a new book called Transcend: The New Science of Self-Actualization. We talk about the meaning of “transcendence” and the difference between transcending in an unhealthy and healthy way; being compassionate, understanding, accepting, forgiving, and perhaps even loving about your foibles and ugliness; and the difference between authenticity and “pseudo-authenticity”.

This week, we look at the story of a man, who did everything he could do to drink, and party his way out of the sport of hockey, but his talent kept him always employed. He had so much going on, that it's hard to describe his crazy life, but let's just say that his career finally ended when he carried a bloody, beaten, unconscious & nude woman into a hospital, with quite an unbelievable story to go with it! An old timey story, that will leave you wanted to leave "the good old days" right where they are! Wild stuff! Never get behind the wheel without a pint of your favorite whiskey, say you don't know how the nude, bloody woman got into your car, and stick to your story that she jumped from a moving vehicle, rather than that you beat her to death with your fists with Tony Demers!!
