Today you get to enjoy our very first show programmed by one of our patrons from the CONDUCTOR TIER over at our Patreon page. In this tier, which is $10 USD ($13.50 CAN), donors get all of the benefits of lower tiers PLUS they earn the opportunity to program their very own personal one-hour(ish) show once a year. Friend, patron and long time listener of the show, Alan Rogers, took advantage of this opportunity and this is the show that he put together for us to enjoy! Here is how Alan described the inspiration for the show. Scotland has been an inspiration for numerous films and Scottish composers have been prominent in film and television scoring. This show showcases some of the music from Scottish composers and the films and TV shows where Scotland played a prominent role in their creation. The show is divided into three parts. Firstly, one section features music from films set in Scotland – some historical tales but other more contemporary. Second, there is a section featuring the music from documentaries whose subject relates to some aspects of the history of Scotland as well as the natural history of the nation. Finally, there's a selection of tracks from films where the filmmakers have used the spectacular scenery of Scotland for their movies. Also, interspersed between these sections are featured music written by Scottish-born composers. I think Alan did a fantastic job curating this show for us and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I did narrating it! After the show was produced, Alan sent me this very kind message. Thanks Erik for reinvigorating my enthusiasm for film music with your Patreon. Offering me the opportunity of an alternate experience with the genre is great. Thank you! I responded by saying… Thanks for the kind note, Alan. Truly though, the Patreon has reinvigorated my love for film music as well as podcasting. It's been a fantastic experience so far and I love interacting with my biggest fans and making them (you) happy! With that being said, I hope you all enjoy the program. If you would like to program your own show then all you need to do is head over to our Patreon page and sign up for the CONDUCTOR TIER. We'd love to have you join the CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO PODCAST Patreon family. But don't feel like you have to join. I'm not forcing anyone to join. Remember this podcast will always be free to listen to but if you want to support the program and join the community we've formed on Patreon then we'd love to have you.

Stories of giants being involved in the construction of megalithic sites, earthworks and other ancient monuments have been alive in the consciousness of the British for millennia. Legends and creation stories hark back to an earlier age of elemental beings, high magic and giant kings ruling the land. Religious documents, medieval chronicles, oral traditions and origin stories all recount converging tales of giants being an integral part of the founding of the British Isles. Giant effigies are still paraded around many cities and towns, keeping this ancient memory alive. Mystics, sages and esoteric sources all speak of giants as a literal reality, often originating in a lost sunken realm off the coast of Ireland. Even Stonehenge's creation is attributed to remarkably tall and powerful builders. These were not only giant in stature, but also giants in intelligence, skill and wisdom. Collating hundreds of historical accounts of massive bones and skeletons being found in the vicinity of sites such as Stonehenge, adds some credence to the idea that age-old myths encoded detailed histories and insights from many thousands of years ago. These were often linked with the secret arts, forgotten sciences and magic from a fabled “Golden Age." The once-lost epic annals of Ireland, secret Scottish archives, old manuscripts of Wales and Druidic traditions of England have revealed a lost timeline, a missing chapter in human history that provides evidence of giant human beings inhabiting, ruling and building the megalithic master works of Albion. The reality of giants existing in prehistoric times is put under the microscope in this book, with the investigation of obscure newspaper accounts, antiquarian diaries, archaeological reports, local history records, newly-translated ancient texts, academic papers, and written evidence from hundreds of sources going back over a 2000 year period. It seems that the giants were also ‘geomancers', having a mastery of surveying, astronomy and landscape knowledge to an extremely high degree. Many were remembered as high-kings and rulers of the country, often inhabiting mountain-tops or hillforts. The origins of all four countries of the British Isles are intimately connected to ruling giants. We hope this book can bring this obscure but fascinating story to life and highlight what a truly immense mystery this is.http://www.megalithomania.co.uk/

Today I have the absolute privilege of chatting with Major Sandy Mack MBE. Sandy has been into the sport of trials for ages, but it most well done for his extensive work on the Scottish ACU which he is now currently chair of. We also discuss his extensive background with the Army Trials Team and the work the Army does to help support the SSDT via refueling stops. It was a really interesting chat that kind of left me wondering how the SSDT would run if it weren't for the Army's involvement, and you also see the benefits for the Army in terms of treating it as a training exercise. It feels like a really symbiotic relationship. Sandy himself has done the SSDT 18 times as a rider but is now more focused on administration of the sport than participation. As the Chair of the Scottish ACU he has a unique perspective to talk about trials in comparison to other disciplines, and how sport development is going. We discuss the healthy levels of trials participation at Scottish club trials and national events. We also hear how Mrs Mack, or mother, looks after the riders as part of the annual SSDT preparation and training. I can tell you I am really glad to have now spoken to someone so dedicated and passionate about the sport of trials. Ladies and Gentleman, I give you my chat with Major Sandy Mack MBE.

Today's You Get the Gist is a short bow to my own aging process - as today is my birthday! It became clear to me last week that when someone is using such figures as Colonel Sanders to encourage you to keep on keeping on - something has shifted! lolol.. So I looked for stories of very cool people that had done just that - and I found the awe-inspiring Virginia Oliver as my next role model. Here's her story and a poem I love, written by Scottish poet Jenny Joseph when she was only 29 years of age. I've always loved it and hold it now even closer to my heart. Warning By Jenny Joseph When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sausages at a go Or only bread and pickle for a week And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry And pay our rent and not swear in the street And set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practise a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

The firm was questioned over its business practices and accused of copying other peoples' products, and rigging search results to boost its own branded products. The US car giant Ford has unveiled a $300m plan to convert a plant in the UK to make electrical components. Plus, after a BBC investigation about online hatred against women, we hear from former Scottish politician Ruth Davidson and Love Island's Kaz Kamwi about their experiences – and why tech companies aren't doing as much as they could. And finally, Apple's latest slew of products have proven to be lacklustre for some – the BBC's James Clayton at the latest tech giant launch tells us why. We discuss all this with live guests Peter Morici, Professor Emeritus of International Business at the R.H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, and in Hong Kong, Shuli Ren, Bloomberg Opinion columnist. Presented by Jamie Robertson, and produced by Gareth Barlow.

Based on real events, the film tells the story of the removal of the Stone of Scone from Westminster Abbey. The stone, supposedly the Stone of Jacob over which Scottish monarchs were traditionally crowned at Scone in Perthshire, was taken by King Edward I of England in 1296 and placed under the throne at Westminster Abbey in London. In 1950, a group of Scottish nationalist students succeeded in liberating it from Westminster Abbey and returning it to Scotland where it was placed symbolically at Arbroath Abbey, the site of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath and an important site in the Scottish nationalist cause.Filming began in June 2007 in various locations throughout Scotland, Wales and England. The filmmakers were given rare access to shoot scenes inside Westminster Abbey. The film was premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, Scotland on 21 June 2008. The film closed the 33rd Annual Toronto International Film Festival on 13 September 2008; and was presented at The Hampton's International Film Festival in the United States. The film was released in the United Kingdom on 10 October 2008 and in Canada on 20 February 2009.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/100things)

Cheers,Scott, Jake, & MichaelBourbon Lens The Mission of Boulder Spirits: Barley, yeast, water, oak, and the pursuit of happiness. These make up the foundation of what we here at Boulder Spirits stand on. We're a small Colorado whiskey company with big dreams, bigger goals, and the biggest pot still in the state. We're here to make our best versions of American Single Malt Whiskeys, Bourbons, and Gins that our team can. We hope you can find us in your future, whether by visiting the distillery for a tour and tasting, or seeing our products at your favorite spirits retailers and finer whiskey serving establishments. About The Chieftain: Alastair Brogan has had a few lives: a Royal Air Force veteran, Vice President of the family business, ‘voted off' reality TV star (internet it!), world traveler, and now owner/operator of Boulder Spirits by Vapor Distillery. While Alastair certainly could have stuck to the long, brittle winters of Scotland to pursue his lifelong dream and make whiskey at home, his sense of adventure and intrigue for innovation made not only the United States, but, most accordingly, Colorado the perfect place to settle. Upon commissioning a 1,000 gallon copper pot still from the famed Forsyths (one of the oldest still makers in the world), he packed up the caravan with the family at his side and found a home in Boulder, Colorado. This is a place that breeds adventure and innovation. The Movement: Unbeknownst to Alastair during his pursuit of whiskey, an entire movement was abrew. Since the day we filled our first freshly charred, virgin American Oak barrel with malt whiskey to the day that we filled our first bottle, the American Single Malt Whiskey category was born. Around the country, as well as the world, the taste for American Whiskey has grown. The thirst for Bourbon stays strong, but this country is great at many things, and innovation is absolutely one of our greatest. This innovative mindset shared by distillers in every corner of this country has created an entirely new set of flavors to explore; these flavors all begin with one common source: 100% malted barley. Currently, there are over 130 distilleries that have ventured into the American Single Malt Whiskey realm, each with as different of an approach to creating whiskey from each other as the next. Single malt whisky is made in many, many countries around the world, but only the United States utilizes the virgin American Oak as a standard. We believe that is the truest defining characteristic of American whiskey. We take traditions from Al's homeland, along with American ingenuity to find a balance that creates award winning whiskeys: distillers malted barley, a Scottish pot still, #3 char American White Oak barrels, aged in an arid, high elevation climate, and cut with the celebrated Eldorado Springs water. This is our American Single Malt.

As the world turns its attention to addressing climate change, Business Daily is in Edinburgh. We bring you an inside glimpse of the conversations setting the agenda ahead of the UN climate conference COP 26, which starts in Glasgow in just over two weeks. Here in the Scottish capital, the ideas company TED - famous for Ted Talks - is holding its own climate summit, Countdown. It puts CEOs, government ministers, philanthropists and activists all in the same room. Vivienne Nunis hears from Pacific Islander Selina Leem, who explains how her home country, the Marshall Islands, is already dealing with rising sea levels.

I'm at the She Podcasts LIVE conference.. but the news doesn't wait. So.. these are the top diabetes stories and headlines of the past seven days. As always, I'm going to link up my sources in the Facebook comments – where we are live – and in the show notes at d-c dot com when this airs as a podcast.. so you can read more if you want, on your own schedule. XX In the News is brought to you by Real Good Foods! Find their breakfast line and all of their great products in your local grocery store, Target or Costco. XX Our top story.. There's a lot of buzz these days around adjunct therapy for diabetes.. basically another treatment along with insulin. Earlier this year, a drug so far just named TTP-399 got FDA breakthrough therapy approval. A new study shows it works well to keep people with type 1 out of DKA. This was small study, 23 people. They found that TTP-399 can help lower blood glucose without increasing the risk of DKA. It's important because other adjunct therapy.. such as S-G-L-T-2 inhibitors do help lower blood glucose, but the FDA has said they cause too much of a risk of DKA in people with type 1. Those are brand names like Invokana and Jardiance. Pivotal trials of TTP-399 begin later this year. https://www.biospace.com/article/vtv-therapeutics-type-1-diabetes-drug-shows-promise/ XX New partnership announced today - Dexcom and Garmin. You will still need your phone.. I knew you were going to ask.. but with the new Dexcom Connect IQ apps you can now see your Dexcom G6 info on your compatible Garmin smartwatch or cycling computer. Jake Leach, chief technology officer at Dexcom says.. Garmin is the first partner to connect through the real-time API, which we told you about a few months back. Basically, you'll be seeing more connectivity without having to use a third party, community sourced work around which a lot of people do now. The name here is interesting, right? Connect IQ, very similar to Tandem's Control IQ. But since Dexcom owns a bit of Tandem, maybe that's no coincidence. I've requested an interview with Dexcom so maybe we'll find out. garmin.com/newsroom, email email@example.com, or follow us at facebook.com/garmin, twitter.com/garminnews, instagram.com/garmin, youtube.com/garmin or linkedin.com/company/garmin. XX New study about time in range, hybrid closed loop systems and faster insulins. The headline here is that using Fiasp with the Medtronic 670g system resulted in greater time in range. How much? The Fiasp group spend 82 point 3 percent time in range.. the Novolog group spent 79.6 percent time in range. This was over 17 weeks and the participants mostly bolused AT meal times, not before, no prebolusing. The researchers echo what I was going to say here, quote – “While the primary outcome demonstrated statistical significance, the clinical impact may be small, given an overall difference in time in range of 1.9%.” So just a heads up if you see headlines screaming about how much faster Fiasp is because of this study. https://www.endocrinologyadvisor.com/home/topics/diabetes/type-1-diabetes/fast-acting-insulin-aspart-versus-insulin-aspart-closed-loop-type-1-diabetes/ XX People who have tried a psychedelic drug at least once in their lifetime have lower odds of heart disease and diabetes. This is a University of Oxford study published in Scientific Reports. These researchers examined data from more than 375-thousand Americans who had taken part in an annual survey sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Participants reported whether they had ever used the classic psychedelic substances including LSD, mescaline, peyote or psilocybin. They also reported whether they had been diagnosed with heart disease or diabetes in the past year. The researchers found that the prevalence of both conditions was lower among psychedelic users. While no one is recommending you start taking mushrooms to avoid diabetes.. there's a growing push to start serious research to investigate the link between psychedelics and cardio-metabolic health. https://www.psypost.org/2021/10/psychedelic-use-associated-with-lower-odds-of-heart-disease-and-diabetes-study-finds-61958 XX Update on the once a week basal insulin I've been reporting on for a while.. both Lilly and Novo Nordisk are testing their own version of this.. this most recent study looks at the Lilly version called Tirzepatide. These researchers found it to be safe and effective with lower rates of hypoglycemia and slightly lower A1Cs than daily basals like Lantus or Tresiba. Lots of studies ongoing here, for both brands of potential once a week dosing, including a large phase 2 program that includes people with type 1. https://www.healio.com/news/endocrinology/20211012/novel-onceweekly-basal-insulin-safe-effective-in-type-2-diabetes XX More to come, including how rugby and diabetes education may go together.. But first, I want to tell you about one of our great sponsors who helps make Diabetes Connections possible. Real Good Foods. Where the mission is Be Real Good They make nutritious foods— grain free, high in protein, never added sugar and from real ingredients—we really like their breakfast line.. although Benny rarely eats the waffles or breakfast sandwiches for breakfast.. it's usually after school or late night. Ugh.. do your teens eat breakfast? You can buy Real Good Foods online or find a store near you with their locator right on the website. I'll put a link in the FB comments and as always at d-c dot com. Back to the news… -- Getting out of the doctor's office and into something that people can actually relate to.. Diabetes Australia is using rugby to teach men about the risks of type 2 diabetes. League Fans in Training (League-FIT) is based on a Scottish initiative that used football teams to deliver exercise and nutritional advice to overweight and obese men. The program includes education and goal setting and a rugby league-based exercise session, delivered by coaches and some of the club's players. What I really like about this is that -from what I can tell - they're focusing on small changes and not telling these guys to give up everything they like to eat and drink or that they have to become professional players to get a little bit more fit. Imagine if NFL players had a clinic for fans to come and learn a little bit about fitness and nutrition? Again, not to be pros.. just to live a little better and lower risks of type 2. https://www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/news -- On Diabetes Connections this week, we're talking to a mom with type 1 who has had two children during the pandemic. One last summer and the other just a few days before our interview! That's In the News for this week.. if you like it, please share it! Thanks for joining me! See you back here soon.

Host: Brenda Zane, www.brendazane.comGuest: Norman Stone, Director, The Final Fix documentaryShow notes: www.brendazane.com/hopestream/83Free e-book: www.brendazane.com/hindsightThe Stream, a community for moms: www.thestreamcommunity.comGet notified when The Final Fix is available in the U.S. www.brendazane.com/finalfixOf all the alternative therapies currently used for treating addiction, N.E.T. (neuro-electric therapy) makes the boldest claims. Without any use of medication, it promises to bring its patients off their drugs of addiction in 5-7 days, with little or no withdrawal symptoms and no future cravings. Could that possibly be true? And if so, why isn't it available everywhere as we continue to lose over 250 per day to drug overdoses?This episode is both inspiring, hopeful and maddening, all at the same time. Norman Stone, director of The Final Fix documentary, sat down with me to talk about his decades-long attempts at bringing N.E.T. to the forefront in hopes it will get approved as an addiction treatment in the United States and worldwide.In the early '70s Norman had a chance encounter with a world-renowned Scottish surgeon who had stumbled upon a non-pharmacological, non-invasive treatment protocol that got, among others, Eric Clapton off of heroin. In this episode, you'll hear that story, and also hear why this treatment and documentary are currently not available in the United States.What is the treatment? N.E.T. uses a small device that is taped over the mastoid bone, behind the patients' ears. Then, a carefully programmed series of tiny electrical pulses re-stimulate the production of the body's own natural pain killers, known as Endorphins and Enkephalins in the brain. For someone who's addicted to any substance these naturally produced opiates quickly become depleted, and even replaced, by the drug or alcohol. The pain and agony of withdrawal keep people trapped in a world that can revolve around drug-seeking, crime, ruined relationships, and often, death. N.E.T. changes all of that, and you'll hear how in this absolutely riveting episode.For those who want to be notified when The Final Fix documentary is available in the U.S. please go to www.brendazane.com/finalfix.

Sparky: Surviving Sex Magick is the literary memoir of a little girl warrior, who survived. Sparky's story shines the spotlight on crimes against American children that were sanctioned on a national scale by the United States government. At the age of six in 1955, she was sold by her parents to the Sex Magick cult run by the CIA under its illegal program of secret experimentation on mind control called Monarch. By the time she was ten, she'd been purposely split into multiple identities, each one associated with a different age and place as her family moved around the country to avoid Child Protective Services and the police. With each new identity, she forgot the last one. In Imperial Beach, California, a tough neighborhood of gangs and brothels abutting the Tijuana Sewer and the Mexican border, she discovered her own courage in the determined persona of a new character, Sparky MacGregor, a Scottish girl who stepped from the pages of an old book and chided her for being weak and afraid. When they touched hands, she exhaled the last vestiges of fear and defeat. She became a warrior who never surrendered. As she grew older, Sparky's memory faded as she was moved from one location to the next. At the age of seventeen, she escaped from a camp in Big Sur, and left childhood behind. She became a physician, raised a family and moved to Moscow where she founded and ran an underground railroad for child sex trafficking victims from the former USSR. Years later, she returned to Imperial Beach to speak at an international conference on border security. The memory of her lost childhood suddenly returned. It hung in the briny air of the wetlands that stretched south to Tijuana. It was there that she re-discovered Sparky. When they touched hands again, the fusion of past and present was like the purr of two engines meshed into synchrony. "Do you remember your promise to me?" Sparky asked. "You vowed to write our terrible story, making it beautiful." This is Sparky's story. 11 giorni fa #sparky: surviving sex magick
Brooklyn-based Lake Street Dive is Yesh's favorite band ever! She was so excited to talk to them about her most passionate subject, climate change, and to find out that they care about saving the world (especially for future generations) as much as she does.Most people don't think about how their favorite bands contribute to healing our planet. According to a study published in the academic journal Popular Music in 2019, five Scottish touring bands collectively created 19,314 kg (approx. 21 tons) of carbon emissions between the months of April and September. The average yearly carbon emissions per person globally, according to The Nature Conservancy, is four tons.Lake Street Dive strives to make a difference. Drummer Mike Calabrese, a passionate environmentalist, has taken the lead in educating his fellow band members about climate change and inspiring them to take action. At their shows, they've created a culture of environmentalism by allowing only reusable water bottles and utensils—and of course by recycling. They have also partnered with Cool Effect, a carbon offsetting non-profit, to support environmental efforts that help underserved communities around the world. One beneficiary is the Los Santos Wind Power Project, which intends to provide clean energy to 50,000 people in the Los Santos region of Costa Rica. Their latest album, Obviously, includes the song “Making Do” about the effects of global warming on the lives of young people. Calabrese and lead singer Rachael Price discuss their experiences as an eco-conscious touring band, including their politics in their art, and how people can overcome their fears about our changing world in order to make it better for everyone.
