Like we always do about this time. Eduardo and Brett are back for another weekly episode to touch tips on topics you didn't know you needed to hear about. ADA, ADA, ADA. Third largest cryptocurrency by marketcap, Cardano held their 2021 Summit with big news. Charles Hoskinson, founder of Cardano and CEO of IOHK announced a partnership with Dish and Boost Mobile. This is a big step toward the introduction of introducing decentralized blockchain technology to real-world usage. The U.S. government hasn't been shy about their ill feelings toward crypto technology with numerous lawsuits and promises of patrolling every single American's tax papers for any usage of cryptocurrencies. Ripple is currently being sued; Kraken is too. The crypto world is genuinely confused at the government's deliberate obfuscation of their understanding of crypto laws. For people who are trying to follow the law to the T, they aren't getting any clarification whatsoever by the government. Brett sees crypto and the need for financial laws to become updated much like in the 90's when section 230 of the Communications Decency Act had to be added to adapt to the internet and social media. Below is an article that goes into detail about taxes, crypto, and the potential to end up in front of the Supreme Court. The crypto industry could take tax fight all the way to the Supreme Court (msn.com) This Corona craziness is getting out of hand, especially by the Federal government under President Joe Biden and liberal state governors. Brett read an opinion piece in the Seattle Times. (State Supreme Court oversteps on mandating vaccine | The Seattle Times) Finally a judge had the guts to stand up and remind us that Washington state governor, Jay Inslee and the Washington State Supreme Court are only in a supporting position when it comes to law. More specifically, covid shot mandates put in place by the aforementioned parties is unconstitutional. With Brett's job on the line for his refusal to take the jab, he wrote the governor a letter. He put a link below so you too can let Jay Inslee know that you disagree with his unconstitutional decision to place mandates on many Washington workers. Send Gov. Inslee an e-message | Governor Jay Inslee (wa.gov) Good news for Dick's Burgers workers! They are raising wages and providing more bennies for their employees such as tuition assistance, child care assistance, and higher wages. Mmm, sounds like Dick's for dinner. The Nanobots are coming! Eduardo talks about nano technology that is being made to detect airborne diseases in the future. The goal is to prepare quicker in the future for a potential outbreak. OMG – Covid-19,20,21, forever. This is plenty for y'all to chew on until the next episode.

The pandemic has impacted us all. Financially, emotionally, physically, and in ways that we probably haven't realized yet. We've also watched our kiddos struggle, both at home and at school. It's time to think of our kids' brains as more than a vessel to store the information we're throwing at them. They're more prone to depression and anxiety than we may realize. On this episode, we're exploring how our kids are handling the pandemic and its aftermath (not well) and what we, as educators, “safe adults,” and parents can do to support them.

In the second half of the conversation, Mike and Crystal get into the SPD's calls being predominantly non-criminal, the surge in gun violence in Seattle and the need for the new mayor to respond with the police force they have (not the one they wish they had), the benefits of decriminalizing jaywalking, the continued refusal by the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission to request an investigation into Mayor Durkan's alleged illegal deletion of text messages, and the vital importance that the law be applied equally to all people - regardless of whether or not they are a public employee or an elected official.

What would you do for love? What if someone stands between you and your heart's desire, and the person in the middle is your true love's estranged spouse? What if the woman you love and her spouse try to rekindle the flames of their damaged marriage, and you must think of them together? Would you accept defeat and quietly walk away, or would you take a more proactive approach? Jim Wheeler decided the best path to his true love's heart was to blow up her husband's truck with her husband in it. Sources: Neighbor jailed in bombing of guardsman. 11/10/1993.

In 2020, he received the AG Award for Sustained Commitment to Diversity for his work with the law clerk program. He is married to Carie, a teacher. They have two children, Leah and Zachary Vu. In 1975, his family immigrated to the United States as refugees after the fall of Saigon. His father, Chuyen Van Nguyen, was a soldier with the South Vietnamese Army and later a pilot in the U.S. Airforce. Chuyen dedicated his life to helping the community in Little Saigon. His brother, Vu Nguyen, was a reporter who wrote for the Associated Press, Seattle Times, Orange County Register, and Daily Breeze.

Welcome! and thank you for listening. Today I am joined by Katy Bowman. Bestselling author, speaker, and a leader in the Movement movement, bio mechanist Katy Bowman is changing the way we move and think about our need for movement. Her nine books, including the groundbreaking “Move Your DNA” and “Movement Matters”, have been translated into more than a dozen languages worldwide. Bowman teaches movement globally and speaks about sedentarism and movement ecology to academic and scientific audiences. Her work has been featured in diverse media such as the Today Show, CBC Radio One, the Seattle Times, and Good Housekeeping. One of Maria Shriver's “Architects of Change” and America Walks “Woman of the Walking Movement,” she has worked with companies like Patagonia, Nike, and Google as well as a wide range of non-profits and other communities, sharing her “move more, move more body parts, move more for what you need” message. Her movement education company, Nutritious Movement, is based in Washington State, where she lives with her family. Learn more at nutritiousmovement.com. One of my favorite things to do is observe people in the grocery store or airport. How do their hips move? Is their head way out in front of their body? Are they looking down? Falling forward? I am victim to my own scrutiny as well. What is my posture at the end of a marathon or triathlon? How to do I stand when giving a talk or at the counter preparing a meal? What hurts or is stiff? Can I do movements that I did as a younger person. How do I move my body throughout my day or on the weekends doing gardening or yardwork? Are these changes a reflection of aging muscles or even deeper changes within our own cellular structure. How might we affect aging by becoming more mobile? Katy and I discuss these things and more. She is a wealth of knowledge and ideas that I believe can help you and your family. Enjoy the interview. Links to her website, podcast, and books are listed below.

You, Too, Can Be All Thumbs. Or At Least Three. Take a look at your hand and fingers—and imagine that instead of five digits, you had an additional thumb, approximately opposite your natural thumb. Researchers at University College London built what they call the “Third Thumb”—a flexible, 3D-printed prosthetic device, controlled by pressure on sensors under the wearer's big toes.The researchers studied how people wearing the thumb adapted their mental models of the world to incorporate their new, augmented body part, which they were able to use to perform tasks that usually take two hands, from picking up multiple wine glasses to plugging a USB cable into an adapter held in the air. The scientists were interested in learning how the brain adapts to such a change, and whether there's any mental cost associated with controlling a body part that may not always be there. SciFri's Charles Bergquist talks with Dani Clode, the designer of the thumb, and Paulina Kieliba, an engineer working on the project, about what they've learned from their interactions with extra body parts. The Healing Power Of Nostalgia One of the trends we saw over the course of the pandemic was returning to memories from one's childhood. The 1977 Fleetwood Mac song Dreams reappeared on music charts worldwide, entertainment industry surveys found that over half of TV consumers rewatched their old favorite shows, and even sales of old Pokémon cards reached record highs. Believe it or not, there's a scientific basis to us getting nostalgic during lockdown. Nostalgia may be an emotionally protective force for people in times of crisis. In hindsight, this finding is no stretch of the imagination—just hearing the way people talk about nostalgic memories indicates a deep emotional effect. Though nostalgia hits us in the gut, evolutionarily, what do humans stand to benefit from indulging in our forever-lost pasts? And perhaps the biggest question of all—is such reminiscing good for us? Should we be actively trying to reflect, or thinking ahead? (Or just living in the moment?) Joining us to talk about the science of nostalgia, and the important role it has to play in our daily lives, are Clay Routledge, a professor in the Department of Management and Marketing at North Dakota State University in Fargo, North Dakota and Andrew Abeyta, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Rutgers University-Camden, in Camden, New Jersey. The Future Of Orcas Threatened In Changing Waters When Seattle Times reporter Lynda Mapes heard of a mother killer whale in the Salish Sea whose baby died shortly after it was born, she was captivated. The grieving mother carried her baby for 1,000 miles, and Mapes chronicled her story for millions of readers who followed along. She said the story resonated because it “wasn't an animal story, but a story about a mother who happened to be a whale.” Now, she's chronicled the plight of the Southern Resident orcas in a new book, Orca: Shared Waters, Shared Home. Orcas are known as fast and ferocious predators, sometimes called the “Tyrannosaurus Rex of the sea.” They've been swimming the oceans for millions of years. But it's not these facts that drew Mapes to chronicle their story. It's that these animals live in ancient societies, with long lineages and strong cultural ties. Their communities are well-known to the native people of the Pacific Northwest, where these orcas swim in the inland waters known as the Salish Sea. But in recent years, human pressures have forced orcas away from their long-time fishing habitat. They face multiple threats, including climate change, boat traffic, development, noise, and the dwindling numbers of Chinook salmon they rely on for food. Guest host John Dankosky talks with Mapes about her new book, and ongoing efforts to help save these majestic mammals.
Many unused COVID-vaccine doses in the U.S. are being thrown away, even as many countries can’t get enough shots. NPR explains why transferring unused doses abroad is so complicated. As newly remote workers move to small places, turning them into “Zoom towns,” rising housing prices are driving out longtime residents. The Washington Post looks at the impact in one community. The Quinault Indian Nation has lived on the coast of Washington state for thousands of years. The Seattle Times reports on how climate change is forcing the tribe to move, and says it’s a problem affecting more and more Indigenous communities. CNN looks at the effort to preserve natural silence in places that haven’t been polluted by human-made noise.
