    Episode 8 of the Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics series. Curious Corner category. Full list of the topics covered on our website: jaef.foundation/problem-guide-jaef In this episode: We continue exploring the similarities between Quantum Faith and Quantum Physics - how the laws governing Quantum Physics are very similar to the laws governing Quantum Faith and we continue our deep dive into the two pillars of Quantum Faith - The Belief Component (How the Force Field of Faith is built) and The Speaking Component ( how the faith signal is activated with our words). In this series: We explore the interrelationship between our natural world and the spirit world. Both have different laws that govern them and we go on a journey to understand how the fundamental laws that govern natural law are very similar to those that govern the spiritual realm. More specifically, we travel down to the level of the unseen building blocks of the spirit realm and physical world - this world is called QUANTUM! In Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics, we get to understand and explore curiosities such as; the power of words, was our world really created by words? can our words change matter? Can you speak things into existence? Positive and negative confessions, all of this apparently comes down to the existence and understanding of the QUANTUM WORLD. At the Quantum level, things that can't be seen by our natural eyes start to appear, infinite possibilities exist but they can only be brought into reality by the Observer effect in the natural world and by Faith in the spirit realm. Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) says: Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 (AMPC) says: Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. Wow - faith is the assurance…faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses, faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses… And Hebrews 11:3 (AMP) follows with: By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible Turns out Jesus Christ might have known something we didn't when he spoke to the fig tree and cursed it and it died or when he said “All Things are Possible to him that believes..” Scientists are now discovering, that this just might be the case when you look at the world through the Quantum lens. As we tread along in this series of Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics, our objective is to learn how these two unseen realms - to the natural eye affect and impact our daily lives. We hope this episode blesses your heart. Open up your heart and mind and let's dive in. The host for this episode was Calvin Kabanda.

    NEWS: Sugar-studded protein is key to an Alzheimer's cure | The Brighter Side (01:38) In a bit of “reverse engineering” research using brain tissues from five people who died with Alzheimer's disease, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they discovered that a special sugar molecule could play a key role in the development of Alzheimer's disease. This could indicate the molecule, known as a glycan, to be used as an early diagnostic test. And opens a way to perhaps prevention of the disease Cleaning up the disease-causing forms of amyloid and tau is the job of the brain's immune cells, called microglia. Earlier studies found that when cleanup is impaired, Alzheimer's disease is more likely to occur.  Thought to be caused by an overabundance of a receptor on the microglia cells, called CD33. Past studies by the researchers showed that for CD33, these “connector” molecules are special sugars.These molecules are ferried around the cell by specialized proteins that help them find their appropriate receptors.  The protein-glycan combination is called a glycoprotein.  The researchers, to find out more about the glycoproteins, obtained brain tissue from five people who died of Alzheimer's disease and from five people.Among the many thousands of glycoproteins they gathered from the brain tissues, only one connected to CD33. What was this mysterious glycoprotein?The researchers determined the protein component's identity by taking its “fingerprint” using mass spectroscopy, which identifies protein building blocks. Then they compared the molecular makeup of the protein with a database of known protein structures. The research team was able to conclude the protein portion of the glycoprotein was receptor tyrosine phosphatase (RPTP) zeta. Further experiments showed that the brain tissue of the five people who died with Alzheimer's disease had more than twice as much RPTP zeta S3L as the donors who did not have the disease. Implying that this glycoprotein may be connecting with more CD33 receptors than a healthy brain, limiting the brain's ability to clean up harmful proteins. Gonzalez-Gil Alvarenga, Ph.D., first author on the study stated:“Identifying this unique glycoprotein provides a step toward finding new drug targets and potentially early diagnostics for Alzheimer's disease.”   A Surprising Link Between Immune System and Hair Growth | Neuroscience News (07:36) Salk scientists have uncovered an unexpected molecular target of a common treatment for alopecia, a condition in which a person's immune system attacks their own hair follicles, causing hair loss. Corresponding author of the study, Ye Zheng, associate professor in Salk's NOMIS Center for Immunobiology and Microbial Pathogenesis, stated:“For the longest time, regulatory T cells have been studied for how they decrease excessive immune reactions in autoimmune diseases … Now we've identified the upstream hormonal signal and downstream growth factor that actually promote hair growth and regeneration completely separate from suppressing immune response.” Initially the researchers were interested in researching the roles of regulatory T cells and glucocorticoid hormones in autoimmune diseases.They did not function together to play a significant role in any of these conditions.  Thought they'd have more luck looking at environments where regulatory T cells expressed particularly high levels of glucocorticoid receptors The glucocorticoid receptor (GR, or GCR) also known as NR3C1 (nuclear receptor subfamily 3, group C, member 1) is the receptor to which cortisol and other glucocorticoids bind. The scientists induced hair loss in normal mice and mice lacking glucocorticoid receptors in their regulatory T cells.After two weeks, the researchers saw the normal mice grew their hair back, while the ones lacking the receptors struggled to grow it back The findings suggested that some sort of communication must be occurring between regulatory T cells and hair follicle stem cells to allow for hair regeneration.They continued to investigate how the regulatory T cells and glucocorticoid receptors behaved in skin tissue samples. They found that glucocorticoids instruct the regulatory T cells to activate hair follicle stem cells, which leads to hair growth. Depends on a mechanism whereby glucocorticoid receptors induce production of the protein TGF-beta3, all within the regulatory T cells. TGF-beta3 then activates the hair follicle stem cells to differentiate into new hair follicles, promoting hair growth.  This study revealed that regulatory T cells and glucocorticoid hormones are not just immunosuppressants but also have a regenerative function. Next, the scientists will look at other injury models and isolate regulatory T cells from injured tissues to monitor increased levels of TGF-beta3 and other growth factors.     Engineers devise clever system for EVs to share charge—while driving | Anthropocene (13:34) The charging station expansion isn't keeping up with the growing number of EVs on the road.The number of EVs on the road per public charging point globally rose to 9.2 at the end of last year, from 7.4 at the end of 2020, according to a study by BloombergNEF analyst Ryan Fisher on the state of public charging infrastructure. In a new study, engineers propose a way around this conundrum: EVs that share charge with each other while driving. In their vision, cars with low batteries could buy some charge from others with extra to spare, all without stopping. Could be orchestrated via a cloud-based control system Electrical and computer engineer Prabuddha Chakraborty the University of Florida and his colleagues propose a two-battery system for EVs.A large, slow-charging lithium-ion battery would drive the car,  A smaller, fast-charging battery would be used for on-the-go charging.  Once powered up, the small battery would transfer its charge to the car's main battery.  “Just like in your computer you have fast cache memory—but it's expensive—so you have other type of high-capacity memories that are slower,” said Tamzidul Hoque, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at the University of Kansas The cloud-based system idea:Monitor charge levels of electric cars.  If a car's power is starting to run low, the network would alert it to other cars nearby with enough charge to sell.  Once two cars are matched with owner consent, cables would connect them for charging and they would be locked at the same speed until the power transfer is complete. Yet even in a well-planned, dynamic peer charging network, the researchers found in simulations that the total charge of the network will slowly deplete.To try to get around this idea, they propose the concept of mobile charging stations: large battery-loaded trucks that would recharge multiple vehicles at once.  Like military jets being refueled in-flight by tanker aircraft.  Using popular traffic modeling software they were able to simulate their idea somewhat.They found that it would eliminate range anxiety and re-charging wait time, and reduce EV cost by eliminating the need to have big batteries.   Scientists Use Vegetable Oil Byproduct to Remove Heavy Metals From Contaminated Water | EcoWatch (20:27) Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, collaborating with ETH Zurich, Switzerland (ETHZ), have discovered a way to turn byproduct from vegetable oil production into a membrane that filters out heavy metals from water. Ali Miserez, study author and professor at Nanyang Technological University, stated:“Water pollution remains a major global issue in many parts of the world…Heavy metals represent a large group of water pollutants that can accumulate in the human body, causing cancer and mutagenic diseases. Current technologies to remove them are energy-intensive, requiring power to operate, or are highly selective in what they filter.” The researchers noticed that proteins in peanut and sunflower oil waste byproducts, called oilseed meals, were useful in attracting heavy metal ions.Turned the oilseed meals' proteins into nano-sized protein amyloid fibrils, which strongly attract heavy metal ions.  Combined these amyloid fibrils with activated carbon and tested the filters on three types of metal: platinum, chromium and lead. The membranes were 99.89% effective at filtering out all of the heavy metals from water, with the best results for platinum and lead. The membrane made from waste byproduct proteins is a low-cost option that requires little energy for decontamination, and the researchers say this innovation could work all over the world for water purification.  “Recovering precious platinum, which costs US$33,000/kg, only requires 32 kg of protein, while recovering gold, which is worth almost US$60,000/kg, only requires 16 kg of protein. Considering that these proteins are obtained from industrial waste that is worth less than US$1/kg, there are large cost benefits,” Miserez explained. Because of the simple technology, this filtration membrane is readily scalable, according to the researchers.   Tesla launches new virtual power plant that pays Powerwall owners to help end brownouts | Electrek (25:30) Tesla has launched a new virtual power plant in partnership with PG&E in California that will pay Powerwalls owners to help stabilize the electric grid and end brownouts in California. What is a virtual power plant?Consists of distributed energy storage systems, like Tesla Powerwalls, used in concert to provide grid services and avoid the use of polluting and expensive peaker power plants. Tesla has partnered with PG&E to launch a new version of its virtual power plant that will actually compensate people participating:The company's statement: “Become a part of the largest distributed battery in the world and help keep California's energy clean and reliable. Opt-in to the Tesla Virtual Power Plant (VPP) with PG&E and your Powerwall will be dispatched when the grid needs emergency support. Through the Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP) pilot, you will receive $2 for every additional kWh your Powerwall delivers during an event. Adjust your Backup Reserve to set your contribution, while maintaining backup energy for outages.” Depending on the events and the number of Powerwalls homeowners have, they could earn anywhere from $10 to $60 per event or even more for bigger systems. The extra capacity your Powerwall provides could help avoid or reduce blackouts in a severe emergency. This way, Powerwall can keep the lights on for both you and your community. Tesla said that it has about 50,000 Powerwalls that could be eligible for this VPP, which add up to a significant 500 MWh of energy capacity than can be distributed in any event.

    Scientists estimate that peatlands around the world hold about 350 billion tonnes of carbon. The tropical peatland of the Congo Basin – known as Cuvette Centrale - are thought to store the equivalent of 20 years of US fossil fuels emissions. BBC Africa Correspondent Andrew Harding has been up to his neck in it, witnessing the work being done by scientists to protect it and what might threaten its future. He also hears a warning from Environment Minister, Arlette Soudan-Nonault, about the choices the Republic of Congo faces between preserving the peatlands and making use of its resources to provide a living for its population. We find out how one simple lesson learned in Indonesia is being shared with countries in Africa and South America to help keep a global promise to protect tropical peatlands. It's not just about promises though – financial experts explain why persuading richer countries to pay cash for “wasteland” could be good for all of us.

    Kellie is a woman on a mission to invite us to look to the skies to heal the earth. She rightly argues that whilst we follow a form of astrology that doesn't even match what the stars and planets are doing in the sky, then we have no chance of being connected to our natural environment. As an earth scientist, Kellie is inspiring us all to wake up, look up and get real about our personal, spiritual responsibility to save our planet. Biography Kellie is both a Scientist and Astrologer on a mission. A mission to reunite humanity with our ecological and cosmological selves, igniting awe and imagination and creating our new vision for Earth, together! Humans have been gazing at the planets and Stars for thousands, if not millions of years. Just as the moon pulls on our body's waters and the sun dictates our circadian rhythm, the movement of the planets are reflective of both the cycles on Earth and the changes within each of us. Kellie has previously worked as a contaminated land practitioner for over 20 years at the same time she was learning and practicing Astrology. Kellie has also trained as an Intuitive Intelligence Trainer and Yoga Teacher. Kellie uses 13 Sign Sidereal Astrology which is observational astrology and matches what we can see in the sky. Kellie believes we need to observe our environment, including the planets and stars, to come back into connection with it. Modern mainstream western astrology does not correlate to what can be seen in the sky. In this episode we discuss: how astrology and environmental science have always been side by side in her life why sidereal astrology is the astrology for our times the problem with tropical "pop" astrology - it doesn't usually match where the planets are in the sky! the removal of a zodiac to remove women from spiritual authority Episode Resources Social: Instagram |YouTube Website: https://www.kellieguenther.com

    HIPAA Explained, Trans Research, Queer Scientists. June 24, 2022, Part 2

    What Does HIPAA Actually Do? HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is name dropped a lot, but frequently misunderstood. Many are surprised to find that the “P” stands for portability, not privacy.  Misunderstandings about what's protected under the law go way deeper than its name. The law outlines protections only for health information shared between patients and health care providers. This means that any personal health data shared with someone who is not specifically mentioned in the law is not covered.  If a period tracking app shares personal health information with Facebook, that's not a violation of HIPAA. Neither is asking for someone's vaccination status.  Guest host Maddie Sofia talks with Tara Sklar, professor of health law and director of the Health Law & Policy Program at the University of Arizona, to explain what's actually covered under HIPAA.   “Research By Us And For Us”: How Medical Research Can Better Serve Trans Communities Trans medical care isn't new or experimental, and study after study has shown that transition-related procedures—such as hormone therapies and surgeries—are incredibly safe and effective. But most long-term studies on trans health focus on the first few years after transitioning, leaving unanswered questions about the years after. Similar to members of other marginalized groups, trans people have long been treated like “case studies,” rather than potential experts when it comes to scientific research. So while researchers have studied trans bodies for decades, they haven't always asked trans people what they need to know about their own bodies, such as: If I'm pursuing medical transition, how will my bone density change after years of taking estrogen? If I take testosterone, will I also need to get a hysterectomy? How will my hormonal and surgical options affect my fertility?  Now, a new wave of medical research—led by trans medical experts themselves—is trying to fill in those blanks and address the needs of trans communities. Guest host Maddie Sofia speaks with Dr. Asa Radix, the senior director of research and education at Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, and Dallas Ducar, nurse practitioner and founding CEO of Transhealth Northampton. They talk about the state of research on trans health, and how studies can better address the needs of the trans and gender diverse communities.   Food Pantry Venison May Contain Lead Iowa requires warning labels about the possible presence of lead in shot-harvested venison. Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska do not. A walk-in freezer about two stories high sits in one corner of a warehouse owned by a food bank called Hawkeye Area Community Action Program Inc. in Hiawatha, Iowa. Chris Ackman, the food bank's communication manager, points to the shelving racks where any donated venison the organization receives is typically stored. Known as the Help Us Stop Hunger, or HUSH, program, the venison is donated by hunters from around the state, and Ackman says the two-pound tubes of ground meat go pretty quickly, lasting only a few months. “It's a pretty critical program, I think, because there are a lot of hunters in Iowa,” he said. “And, it's well enjoyed by a lot of families as well.” Similar programs around the country have been applauded as a way for hunters to do something they enjoy while also helping feed those in need. Iowa hunters donate around 3,500 deer a year through the program. From the hunters, the deer goes to a meat locker, where it's ground, packaged and shipped off to food pantries around the state. But before it hits the shelves, Iowa officials require a warning label on the venison package. The label reads: “Lead fragments may be found in processed venison. Children under 6 years and pregnant women are at the greatest risk from lead.” Then, in bold type, the label notes: “Iowa has not found cases of lead poisoning from lead in venison,” along with a number to call for more information. Iowa stands out among Midwestern states in requiring a label warning about the potential hazard of lead ammunition and the fragments it can leave behind in shot-harvested game meat like venison. Donated venison in Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska come with no similar warning label. Read more at sciencefriday.com. Museum Exhibit Celebrates Queerness In Science Last year, the California Academy of Sciences debuted “New Science: The Academy Exhibit,” which celebrates 23 incredible LGBTQIA+ scientists. The folks in this exhibit are challenging the exclusionary practices that are all too common in scientific spaces, with the aim of creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment. It is a celebration of queerness in science. Guest host Maddie Sofia talks with the curator of this exhibit, Lauren Esposito, who is a curator of arachnology at the California Academy of Sciences and founder of 500 Queer Scientists, based in San Francisco. They discuss the exhibit, the importance of LGBTQIA+ representation in STEM, and, of course, arachnids. The exhibit is free and open to the public at the California Academy of Sciences, and it is also available online.   Transcripts for each segment will be available the week after the show airs at sciencefriday.com.

    Hello and welcome back to ArtBeat radio!  This week's installment features lots of refreshing insight and fun facts about animals with AAW MAP Program student Jack Medved.  Jack shares a detailed interview about his favorite places to go and animals to see, as well as an in-depth informative segment on the nature of sloths.  We hope you enjoy listening!Jack: Roll the questions! Savannah: Why do you like educating people on animals?Jack: I am glad you asked! Not only have I learned about the animals and the habitats themselves, but I have also learned about the experts that know all about animals including the world's best ones: The Kraft Brothers. Also, what I am going to say is now that I have learned through books and online, educating others is very important because animals are very special and so amazing. We have to let others know and to share our knowledge to protect them. Also, another reason bioinspiration which means inspiration from biodiversity. Scientists get ideas from how nature does things. In my animal stories I share important lessons and share what their stories are really all about. You could say I am a genius. Savannah: Jack, how long have you been teaching people about animals?Jack: That isn't even a question you have to ask! The thing is, I have always been teaching people about animals because that's what makes me, me. *omitting part about place of residence*Jack: You could say that I am really great at drawing animals and taking photos as well. My mom has an Instagram here as well. But, there is also one thing here- not only am I good at those things, but taking advice is important as well. After all, all animals are special. Another thing is, it is not always easy to make animals understand us because we can't speak their languages or use their powers of course. Not only can you learn very good things here, but you could say I always go about discovering stuff. Adventurous, brave, and curious, that's me!Savannah: Jack, do you have a favorite place where you like to learn about animals, such as the San Diego Zoo? Jack: I know a lot of places. I go to the San Diego Zoo a lot and SeaWorld among other places. But, everyone has to be educated when it comes to taking care of animals and protecting their habitats. Now do you understand? I am frequently right and true. But, it's because I like to take action because it is the only way to know if your heart is in the right place. Instincts and being gifted- talk about a blessing! Savannah: Do you have any hopes or dreams for the future that you would like to share?Jack: Hopes or dreams? A lot! When it comes to adventures or things to add to my collections or my drawings. But also, it's like the song “When You Wish Upon A Star”. That always reminds me of things. I do have a good memory. You could say I am pretty smart and all. I am protective and caring. Of course, when it comes to knowledge and it comes to me, I can do anything because I always believe in myself. Savannah: Is there anyone who you would like to thank?Jack: Well, my friend that's a funny thing! You see, I am kind of beautiful in my own way. I can come up with ways to do certain things when it comes to answers for that. I thank my self instincts and my heart. I think I have good friends here. This taught me that even the most difficult of us has a fighting chance! When it comes to taking care of the world and protecting it, that shows how special Jack is! Now that you have got all of the questions out, that makes for a happy ending! Please email sandiego@ableartswork.org for the full transcription.

    This week on the Hemp Podcast, Lancaster Farming talks to Wendy Mosher, president and CEO of New West Genetics, a Colorado-based hemp seed company focused on genomics, seed breeding and agribusiness. Mosher discusses an initiative the company is working on with several other stakeholders, including International Hemp and King's AgriSeeds, called “Value the Seed” that promotes certified seed as a way to unburden farmers and assure regulators of compliance. This policy reform initiative is centered around the fiber and grain sectors of the hemp industry, and Mosher is hopeful it will be adopted in the 2023 Farm Bill. If the initiative is successful, American hemp farmers who plant certified seed that meets standards set by the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies will be exempt from burdensome regulations, excessive fees and THC testing.

    Since the Beatles showed up with a built-in songwriting team, bands have always had those members who practised the mysterious art of creating and arranging compositions rather than relying on outside professionals to do that for them. Of course, even those great songsmiths liked to take a break and release an album of music that inspired them to pick up the quill and ink in the first place – Bowie's “Pinups”, Patti Smith's “12”, John Lennon's “Rock n Roll” (maybe more for contractual obligations, but still...) Now we can add Australian songwriter John Kennedy's “Raining Treasure” to that mix. Welcome to episode 158 of Love That Album. John's been making great records since the 1980s with his bands like John Kennedy's Love Gone Wrong and JFK and the Cuban Crisis. His music has always had an Americana flavour to it, and he writes wonderful tales of life in Sydney. His 2017 album JFK and the Midlife Crisis was a concept album about a middle aged musician recalling his times younger days in Sydney working in the indie music scene and where he now sees himself.  In 2019, this led to the idea of recording an album of covers from fellow travellers in Australian independent music of the 70s and 80s, “Raining Treasure – Australian Indie Gold Covers Vol.1”.In 2022, John and his band The '68 Comeback Special have released a second volume, “Raining Treasure – More Australian Indie Gold Covers Vol.2” with their interpretations of songs from The Scientists, Weddings Parties Anything, Radio Birdman, and (in an extension of the definition of “independent”) The Angels (aka Angel City in the US). These are not carbon copies of their originals – the gents put deep thought into the arrangements of these songs, and the results in some cases show a greater musical alignment with the lyrics.  I met up with John Kennedy and Peter Timmerman from the band to discuss these great albums. Tales are also told of the oppressiveness of Queensland under the Bjelke-Petersen government, John's “Sex Pistols” moment meeting the Go Betweens, and whether it's appropriate for an audience to chant during a cover of THAT Angels song. If you're a fan of Kennedy, you won't want to miss this. If you're unfamiliar with his work, you're in for a treat. You can stream the Raining Treasure albums from the usual places OR get a physical copies of the CDs from https://www.thegroovemerchants.com/Product/106392?fbclid=IwAR0x6jxrn6V3nds5OV4EcVGER_pkmkSQrG6KqBUplMqxLWP4JKDY2-wREP4 If you want to do a compare and contrast with the originals, I've created a YouTube playlist:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUPF49t_p_U&list=PLvosm3nd-62VG0NoFR3x8jhoMgPBkcm51 Download this episode of LTA from your podcast app of choice.

    There is a musical world all around us. Scientists discovered that even plants play “music” through their electrical signals.  And your brain works the same way: It sends electrical signals throughout your body every moment of the day. These electrical signals either create “music” and bliss or “noise” and misery.  These electrical signals have brainwashed us with the ideas of limitations in the human system. Here's a practical example: We think being an “addict” means we're forever addicted to our vices. Of course, that's not the truth. But we've trained our brains to believe it. And as a result, our brains produce those feelings.  The fact is, every limitation you have is only a limitation because it's what you've trained yourself to believe.  In this episode, you'll discover how to cut through these limitations and experience pure ecstasy every moment of your life.   Listen now.  Show Highlights Include The weird way acting like a plant helps you achieve effortless happiness (3:31)  How to change your worst compulsive behaviors, emotions, and addictions doing nothing other than becoming mindful  (7:26)  The “Polygraph Detector” method for instantly noticing when your brain's distressed (and how to morph it into serenity) (11:56)  How listening to your breathing patterns and heart rates reveals what's happening in your subconscious and prevents self-sabotage (16:43)  3 simple head massages you can try on yourself to force your brain to relax and melt your stress away (18:03)  The “Chattering Monkey” trap discovered by Zen masters which burdens your mind with stress (and how to quiet it) (20:53)  If you want to radically change how much control you have over your emotions in as little as 20 days, you can go to https://thefreedomspecialist.com/feelbetternow and sign up for the Choose Your Own Emotion course.  If you or somebody you know is looking to drop the ‘F' Bomb of freedom in your life and break free from addiction, depression, anxiety or anything that's making you feel flat-out stuck, head over to https://thefreedomspecialist.com/ and book a call where we can look at your unique situation and give you the roadmap you've been missing.

On today's Episode: Change is “wildly complex!” It's exciting, it's inspiring, it's also nerve wrecking, anxiety inducing and scary as hell. Some people do extremely well with change while others have meltdowns and can barely handle the stress of change.The thing we're diving into in this episode is not just the external side of dealing with change, but the internal state of change. Whether you're moving, taking a new job, ending a relationship, dealing with the loss of a loved one, or trying to adapt with polarized political wins and losses, your identity is being challenged at the core of everything.Maya Shankar is the host and executive producer of, Slight Change of Plans, a podcast about, “who we are and who we become in the face of a big change.” She is a former violinist that was accepted into Julliard who underwent a massive change of identity. Maya later found herself leading as the founder and lead of the White House Behavioral Science Team under President Barack Obama. Let's talk about the tactics you need to let go of the identity you're holding onto in the face of life's major changes. As Maya points out, some of the changes you experience are willing and others are unwilling changes, but in both cases the value is placed on detaching your identity from the pursuit of a specific thing, and deciding on purpose who you are in the face of change.SHOW NOTES:0:00 | Introduction to Maya Shankar0:25 | How Change Threatens Your Identity10:32 | Grieving The Loss of Identity 27:02 | Recreate Habits for a New Identity39:20 | Find Meaning In SufferingQUOTES:“In that moment, I was grieving the loss of the instrument, but actually in many ways I was grieving the loss of a huge part of myself…” [3:01] “If you can identify the things that make you happy about the things you do, and more strongly attach yourself to those things rather than the things itself, it's going to give you a more stable self-identity as you move through a world that will inevitably change.” [8:49]“Sometimes the labels or the roles that we want to occupy, or the traits that we want to embody like independence, we might want to revisit from time to time to make sure that our working mode of what that thing ought to mean really aligns with our values and our long term goals.” [24:30]“Change is wildly complex, and you not only lack control over how you might respond to all those internal changes that are happening, but you don't control how other people will respond differently to you…” [30:39]Follow Maya Shankar:Website: https://mayashankar.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/MayaUmaShankar Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drmayashankar/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/maya.shankar.14 Podcast: https://mayashankar.com/podcast

    [Trigger warning: in this episode, we mention pregnancy loss]So, every year on my birthday, I get a reading from a psychic, she's the High Priestess of Brooklyn. She does my tarot cards, my astrology, and tells me an outlook for the year - it's a whole thing. Two years ago, she gave me a timeline of when a baby could come into my life. It was the middle of a pandemic, I had just gone through an insane medical thing - so all signs should have pointed to, “no, thank you” for me. However, my first reaction was, “what else are we doing?” So I went to an OBGyni, took out my IUD and bought some pre-natal vitamins. Meanwhile, I neglected to tell my husband the plan from the cosmos and the doctor until I came home with those gigantic pills. We, of course, had a discussion, during which we realized that our timing was not aligned with the timing of the stars. But I come back to those pre-natal vitamins, time and time again. Sitting in a giant container in my cupboard. Doctors tell us to take them before trying to conceive, and while pregnant, but why and which vitamins really matter?Then a few months ago, I met the co-founders of WeNatal, Ronit Menashe and Vida Delrahime. They met while working at Nike and became fast friends. They bonded over the shared experience of pregnancy loss and Ronit did what a nutrition-obsessed human does. She started looking at studies and consulting with experts like Dr. Mark Hyman to try to figure out how to optimize her chances of having a successful pregnancy.And she came to find that the sperm of it all is often left out of the nutrition equation for people trying to conceive. Often, the burden of fertility and infertility is put on the human giving birth, but that's really only one piece. So here's the lunacy: sperm regenerates around every 70-ish days, but it could as quickly as every 40 days according to new studies. That means prenatal vitamins for men can have a real impact on the quality of sperm, and quickly.So together, the pair created a prenatal vitamin that's meant to address this, creating vitamins for both men and women who are trying to conceive that address the very unique needs of each side of the coin.And I want to acknowledge that all sorts of families are bringing life into the world, with two mommies, two daddies, or just one loving parent. And WeNatal serves those needs too - now we just need to get men's prenatal vitamins into sperm banks …It's also important to note that as a human or a couple is trying to conceive they can do absolutely everything "right" and still need help with fertility. That's more than OK.Ronit, Vida and I discuss a lot of pregnancy nutrition questions I have as well as what it took to formulate these vitamins. I'm excited for you to hear this interview, no matter if you never want kids, are riding a fence, or are trying to conceive right now. Resources: Learn more about WeNatal and learn more about the research they'd doneFollow @We_Natal on InstagramStats and facts on sperm regeneration here.Woman is born with all of the eggs she'll ever haveFolate Study: You'll hear the pair discuss folate on the episode. Here's more about why: In a 2018 study - Thirty couples with fertility problems lasting for at least 4 years were included in this program. At least one of the partners was a carrier of the MTHFR genetic mutation which we know 40-50% of people have. The couples were given 600 micrograms of folate per day for 3 months, Thirteen of the couples were able to conceive.Extensive research has been conducted to study the effect of antioxidant therapy in improving male fertility. .Taking the right amount of nutrients for women AND men before pregnancy assists in the growth, development, and long-term health of future children. Antioxidants may increase male fertility four-fold and can increase the chance of a successful pregnancy by up to five times.Men's health tied to pregnancy lossSperm counts have dropped 60% since 1973 and could reach zero by 2045.New research suggests that sperm plays a greater role in pregnancy success and healthy offspring than we ever realized. Scientists observed sperm "communicating" with the female immune system with triggered changes in gene expression of the female's immune signaling molecules. This supported acceptance of the new embryo and reduced risk of pregnancy loss.

    According to a new report that just came from the government watchdog agency responsible for overseeing the NIH, it turns out that nearly three-quarters of the scientists and researchers who accept NIH grant money—meaning, people who receive NIH tax-payer funding to conduct research—fail to properly report their ties to foreign countries and companies. Specifically, the Department of Health and Human Services Inspector-General's office found that approximately 69 percent of the people who receive NIH research grants don't properly report all of their ties to foreign entities—specifically, the Chinese Communist Party. Furthermore, this same lack of transparency also applies here at home. According to another report from Open the Books, it turns out that in a 10-year time span, government scientists—like Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. Francis Collins, and so on—received somewhere between $350 million to $400 million in royalty payments. But the disclosure documents are so redacted that we don't know which company is paying how much money to which scientist and for which patent. ⭕️ Sign up for our NEWSLETTER and stay in touch

    Consumption of berries, fruits and vegetables and mortality among 10,000 Men Followed for four decades Folkhalsan Research Center (Norway), June 17, 2022 Investigators from Folkhalsan Research Center in Norway found that consumption of berries, fruits and vegetables and mortality among 10,000 Norwegian men followed for four decades "The association between vegetable and fruit consumption and risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been investigated by several studies, whereas fewer studies have examined consumption of vegetables and fruits in relation to all-cause mortality. Studies on berries, a rich source of antioxidants, are rare." "The purpose of the current study was to examine the association between intake of vegetables, fruits and berries (together and separately) and the risk of all-cause mortality and cause-specific mortality due to cancer and CVD and subtypes of these, in a cohort with very long follow-up. We used data from a population-based prospective Norwegian cohort study of 10,000 men.  Men who in total consumed vegetables, fruit and berries more than 27 times per month had an 8-10 % reduced risk of all-cause mortality compared with men with a lower consumption. They also had a 20 % reduced risk of stroke mortality. Consumption of fruit was inversely related to overall cancer mortality, with hazard rate ratios of 0.94, 0.84 and 0.79 in the second, third and firth quartile, respectively, compared with the first quartile." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Increased consumption of vegetables, fruits and berries was associated with a delayed risk of all-cause mortality and of mortality due to cancer and stroke."       UA researchers discover component of cinnamon prevents colorectal cancer in mice University of Arizona, June 15, 2022 Research conducted at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy and the UA Cancer Center indicates that a compound derived from cinnamon is a potent inhibitor of colorectal cancer. Georg Wondrak, Ph.D., recently completed a study in which they proved that adding cinnamaldehyde, the compound that gives cinnamon its distinctive flavor and smell, to the diet of mice protected the mice against colorectal cancer. In response to cinnamaldehyde, the animals' cells had acquired the ability to protect themselves against exposure to a carcinogen through detoxification and repair. Given cinnamon's important status as the third-most-consumed spice in the world,' Wondrak adds, 'there's relatively little research on its potential health benefits. If we can ascertain the positive effects of cinnamon, we would like to leverage this opportunity to potentially improve the health of people around the globe.' Drs. Wondrak and Zhang's study, 'Nrf2-dependent suppression of azoxymethane/dextrane sulfate sodium-induced colon carcinogenesis by the cinnamon-derived dietary factor cinnamaldehyde,' has been published in Cancer Prevention Research later this spring.         Lean tissue benefit of protein supplementation affirmed Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), June 17, 2022.  A “systematic review of systematic reviews” published  in Sports Medicine showed that the addition of protein supplementation to resistance training is associated with a greater increase in lean body mass (body mass minus fat mass) in comparison with resistance training alone.  Researchers in Brazil selected 46 studies in the meta-analyses involved a total of 2,925 men and women over 50 years of age. Supplemented groups received 12 to 40 grams of protein or 3 to 10 grams of amino acids while the control groups received a placebo or no supplementation. Among the 4 meta-analyses that evaluated lean body mass, 3 found a significant increase in association with resistance training plus protein supplementation compared to resistance training without supplementation. There was also a significant benefit for protein supplementation combined with training on muscle mass alone. “It is possible to conclude that protein supplementation associated with resistance training induces greater increases in lean body mass compared with resistance training alone in older participants. In addition, it is suggested that the effect of protein supplementation on lean body mass is extended to the increase in muscle mass, while no additional effect of protein supplementation was observed on muscle strength in older adults.”       Study shows inhaled toxic particles take direct route from lungs to brain University of Birmingham, June 20, 2022 Breathing in polluted air could lead to toxic particles being transported from lungs to brain, via the bloodstream—potentially contributing to brain disorders and neurological damage, a new study reveals. Scientists have discovered a possible direct pathway used by various inhaled fine particles through blood circulation with indications that, once there, the particles stay longer in the brain than in other main metabolic organs. The scientists revealed they had found various fine particles in human cerebrospinal fluids taken from patients who had experienced brain disorders—uncovering a process which may result in toxic particulate substances ending up in the brain. "The data suggests that up to eight times the number of fine particles may reach the brain by traveling, via the bloodstream, from the lungs than pass directly via the nose—adding new evidence on the relationship between air pollution and detrimental effects of such particles on the brain."   Turmeric: A Wellness Promoting Tonic At Low Doses, Research Reveals Ohio State University, June 12, 2022 A study published in the Nutrition Journal   holds great interest among those on the fence about using dietary supplements to improve the quality and perhaps length of their lives, but for which clinical proof is lacking. The study was conducted in healthy middle aged people (40–60 years old) with a low dose of curcumin (80 mg/day) in a fat soluble (lipidated) form.  Two groups of 19 subjects were given either curcumin or placebo for 4 weeks. Blood and saliva samples were taken before and after the 4 weeks and analyzed for the following blood and saliva measures relevant to health promotion The positive results were reported as follows: Curcumin lowered triglycerides, but not cholesterol (note: lowering cholesterol may harm human health). Curcumin increased plasma contents of nitric oxide, a molecule that can work against high blood pressure, as well as lowering plasma concentrations of sICAM, a molecule linked to atherosclerosis. Curcumin raised plasma myeloperoxidase concentrations, without raising C-reactive protein and ceruloplasmin values – a sign of normal and inflammation-related neutrophil function. Curcumin reduced salivary amylase activities, which are an indicator of sympathetic nervous system stress. Curcumin raised salivary radical scavenging capacities, an indicator of reduced oxidative stress.· Curcumin reduced plasma contents of beta amyloid protein, a marker for brain aging and Alzheimer's disease. Curcumin reduced ALT liver enzyme activities, a marker for liver injury.   Natural cocoa consumption: Potential to reduce atherogenic factors? University of North Texas, June 17, 2022 According to news reporting in University of North Texas, research stated, "Short-term consumption of flavanol-rich cocoa has been demonstrated to improve various facets of vascular health. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of 4 weeks of natural cocoa consumption on selected cardiovascular disease (CVD) biomarkers in young (19-35 years) women of differing body mass indices (BMI)." "Subjects (n=24) consumed a natural cocoa-containing product (12.7 g natural cocoa, 148 kcal/serving) or an isocaloric cocoa-free placebo daily for 4 weeks in a random, double-blind manner with a 2-week washout period between treatment arms.  Natural cocoa consumption resulted in a significant decrease in haptoglobin, EMP concentration and monocyte CD62L in obese compared to overweight and normal-weight subjects. Natural cocoa consumption regardless of BMI group was associated with an 18% increase in high-density lipoprotein and a 60% decrease in EMPs. Also, obese subjects experienced a 21% decrease in haptoglobin and a 24% decrease in monocyte CD62L expression in following 4 weeks of natural cocoa consumption. Collectively, these findings indicate that acute natural cocoa consumption was associated with decreased obesity-related disease risk."
