As callers share their choices in our unofficial, thoroughly unscientific exit poll, Jon Campbell, Albany reporter for WNYC/Gothamist, and then Brigid Bergin, WNYC's senior political correspondent, join to break down what they're hearing and seeing at the voting polls.
There are so few times over the last 2.5 years where you get a qualified chance to have an "I told you so" moment. But, Canadians just got one. And it's a BIG one for unvaccinated Canadians who were told they weren't allowed to fly domestically or internationally for over 8 months... for reasons. Well, as it turns out, there were NO reasons when the time came to prove their case in court. And what's best is, we've got the transcripts to prove it... ----- Go subscribe to the Substack for free or to donate to the show!

In this episode, part 3 of the Huberman salt episode debunking, we dive deeper into the sources that Huberman uses and why they are not considered legitimate by scientists. As we saw in parts 1 and 2 (and will see in subsequent parts in more detail), Huberman seems to draw from the LMNT website to make his scientific case. In this part, we examine his previous invocation of Gary Taubes and why Taubes's case is no longer plausible or legitimate in the wake of new scientific evidence. We also examine James DiNicolantonio, DiNicolantonio recent co-authorship of a book with Joseph Mercola (who recently received serious legal threats from the Biden administration), and the comprehensive, systematic, scathing dissection of DiNicolantonio's book by Red Pen Reviews. We conclude with a brief overview of the latest randomized controlled evidence supporting the causal link between high sodium intake, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease, as well as the clear and demonstrated benefit of substituting potassium for sodium for preventing cardiovascular disease and death.===Like, comment, subscribe.For more, find me at:PODCAST The Kevin Bass ShowYOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/user/kbassphiladelphiaSUBREDDIT www.reddit.com/r/kevinbassWEBSITE http://thedietwars.comTWITTER https://twitter.com/kevinnbass/https://twitter.com/healthmisinfo/INSTAGRAM https://instagram.com/kevinnbass/TIKTOK https://tiktok.com/@kevinnbassAnd above all, please donate to support what I do:PATREON https://patreon.com/kevinnbass/DONATE https://thedietwars.com/support-me/

How can scientists calculate the age of a rock? How do evolutionists arrive at the dates that they do? If you pick up a rock in your back yard, how can you figure out how long it has been there? You might try any number of methods, but no matter how which one you decide to use, you must make some assumptions. David Rives and Paul Taylor meet to discuss the many assumptions scientists use to calculate the age of our own (very large) rock…Earth. Paul Taylor is the director of Strong Tower Ministries. Originally from the UK, Paul does an excellent job analyzing Darwin's life and legacy. He is author of the book “Where Birds Eat Horses” and has led hundreds of tours to Mount St. Helens, studying the impact and environmental regrowth that took place after its eruption in 1980.

Those who preach TE, maintain that you can accept TE and still believe in the bible, when in fact – one soon realizes that to accept TE as a belief system, one must start to discount other parts of scripture as just stories or not actually inspired. The current trend in popular thinking that all living things evolved through random modification and subsequent natural selection is incorporated into the TE belief. It an attempt to combine the Creation and Evolution theories. Theistic evolutionists believe the Bible is the inspired word of God, yet also believe man's existence on Earth to be derived from millions of years of evolution. We consider the philosophical and theological credibility of ‘Theistic Evolution' with particular emphasis on the inspired word of God as our guide. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/christadelphians-talk/message

The Bill Kelly Show Podcast: Ontario is lifting capacity limits for selected settings, returning them back to 100 per cent capacity as it reports 573 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday. Effective Saturday, Oct. 9, capacity limits will be lifted for: Concert venues, theatres and cinemas. Spectator areas of facilities for sports and recreational fitness (would not include gyms, personal training). Meeting and event spaces (indoor meeting and event spaces will still need to limit capacity to the number that can maintain physical distancing). Horseracing tracks, car racing tracks, and other similar venues. Commercial film and television productions with studio audiences. What about restaurants? Restaurants across the province think this is unfair and unscientific.... GUEST: James Rilett, Central Canadian Vice President of Restaurants Canada - Nearly two-thirds of Canadians say they support health-care workers refusing treatment to threatening or disrespectful patients who are unvaccinated against COVID-19, according to a new survey from Nanos Research. The poll, conducted by Nanos Research and sponsored by CTV News, found that 40 per cent of Canadians support and 24 per cent somewhat support health-care workers refusing treatment to these patients. GUEST: Dr. Nancy Walton, Associate Dean of Ryerson University and Deputy Chair and Ethicist with the Health Canada Research Ethics Board - We know the election wasn't stolen in 2020 and we also know Trump is setting up to try and steal it in 2024. Whether or not he runs for office is irrelevant. If the Republican Party is successful at manipulating congressional districts, and continues to replace election workers with flunkeys who will do whatever Trump wants, then Trump will have the mechanism in place by which he can reclaim the presidency.

This program will discuss the irresponsible, and some would call criminal, policy of requiring children to wear face masks in order to attend school. The program will recap one of the clever propaganda ploys that some schools use to indoctrinate our children to accept and support the requirement that all people wear masks. I will then give the myriad adverse effects on the mask wearer, especially the child, as documented in the following article: “Masking Children: Tragic, Unscientific, and Damaging” by Paul E. Alexander, who holds a PhD from McMaster University's Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence, and Impact. This article emphasizes that paper and cloth masks are nearly useless in stopping the spread of airborne transmission of viruses, and that masks produce adverse physical (hypoxia, hypercapnia, headaches, drowsiness, dizziness, reduced ability to concentrate and reductions in cognitive function) and psychological (impede important non-verbal communications that are universal to our emotional connection, which can lead to anxiety and impaired emotional and intellectual development of children).

Biden rocks people of good conscience everywhere as he targets 80 million Americans because of their personal healthcare choices.

In this episode of New Ideal Live, Elan Journo and Onkar Ghate discuss whether governments should give out lottery prizes or other incentives for getting vaccinated, or mandate vaccination when people refuse it. Among the topics covered: Why the role of the U.S. government should shift given the end of the pandemic;How the problem that unvaccinated people pose to others is mainly due to socialized health care;Why incentivizing vaccination through “vaccine lotteries” is unjust paternalism;Differentiating the policies packaged together as vaccine “mandates”;Whether it is proper for governments to mandate vaccination;How government control of industry obscures the application of these principles;How collectivism generates conflict between people and discourages individual responsibility;Whether government mask mandates are justifiable;Whether the government involvement in vaccine distribution is a reason to fear the vaccine;The proper role of government in a pandemic. Mentioned in the discussion are Onkar Ghate's paper “A Pro-Freedom Approach to Infectious Disease: Planning for the Next Pandemic,” Ben Bayer's article “The Unscientific, Un-American Ethics of Vaccine Distribution,” and Ayn Rand's comments on vaccine mandates and quarantine. This podcast was recorded on July 14, 2021. Listen to the discussion below. Listen and subscribe from your mobile device on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify or Stitcher.

In this episode, Ben Bayer reads aloud his article, "The Unscientific, Un-American Ethics of Vaccine Distribution." In that essay, he argues that it's absurd to treat philosophers' “intuitions” as standards for government distribution of the Covid vaccine. Bayer's article was originally published in New Ideal, the Ayn Rand Institute's journal, on April 14, 2021.
As we pursue the "Are vs. Should Problem" and examine our personal inventory, I want to describe two main ways we can understand ourselves and the realities we live in.First, there is the measurable world. The 'Hard' world where science reigns supreme. Things are measurable, quantifiable, and therefore fit into the well oiled scientific machinery. Problems stemming from economics, medicine, and food supply are easily boiled down into testable hypotheses and theories used to derive definitive results. Other people have described hard problems as being those containing subjects comprised of matter (as opposed to ideas, for example).Is the economy going to tank? Well, the data on X and Y support a trajectory that suggests no.Will this medicine prevent a global pandemic? It is 98% effective at preventing disease and 90% of the population is vaccinated so yes!Is this years corn crop enough to supply North America for the winter? Yes, ten billion metric tonnes of corn will feed 200 million people (I completely made up those numbers, but you get the point)So science is pretty darned good at answering certain questions. About things that we can OBSERVE and MEASURE.EVERYTHING ELSE is a SOFT problem defined by a soft reality. EVERYTHING ELSE.My point in this episode is that VERY FEW items in our personal inventory are going to fit into the HARD reality. And, unfortunately, scientists (and other professionals who get paid to think) spend most of their time on HARD problems because, well, because they have to. The hard tools don't work as well on the soft realities. BUT THEY CAN WORK!And so, as part of our assessment of our personal inventory, and as part of the process of weeding out the needs, the wants, and the don't-really-need-so-muches, we have to develop a new skill set. One way to understand the soft problems, is simply to borrow the scientific tools used for hard problems. Einstein, and others, called these 'thought experiments'. There's no reason we can't follow the scientific approach to ask questions about soft realities, we just can't draw the same conclusions because not everything can be boiled down to numbers.And that may be another way to understand the difference. Hard reality problems can be boiled down to a set of numbers that represent the reality: The average person has 10,000 thoughts a day. Whereas the soft reality problem can't be measured like that: The average person worries about death and being unloved as they age. Worry, fear, sadness. How do you measure those things? And, if you could, why would you? What we want and need with soft problems is simply a better understanding of the realities across people. Science isn't a good tool to go about understanding this. Our minds, however, are excellent tools to solve these problems - we just have to normalize this however we can once we find a system that works. And, really, we probably have lots of Unscientific approaches that work - we just treat them differently from science because, well, they aren't science. Next week I'll go in to a bit more detail with examples.

Ulys & Nebu continue with the the same story from the previous episode: bottles in Canadian rectums. Nebu reads an 'engrossing' paper from Canada. A patient shows up with a hot ink bottle in his anus: an 'ingenious' idea to warm his prostate. The author, who is a Canadian doctor, heroically gets it out without incident, allegedly. Your favorite hosts do not forget to highlight the unofficial sponsor of the episode, Big Grease Vaseline, whose product may even helped smooth the bowel movements of the patient in this paper.

This week we pay tribute to the late Mario Pavone, with an epic live set in which his majestic bass sound propelled the Thomas Chapin Trio into the stratosphere at the 1995 Newport Jazz Festival. The rest of the playlist revolves around modern jazz guitar, with two different way to pay tribute to Bill Frisell by the Unscientific Italians and Skuli Sverrison, the revelatory new albums by Hungarian guitarist Csaba Palotai (with Steve Arguelles) and French guitarist Paul Jarret, the guitar talk of Joel Harrison and Pete McCann in tribute to Vic Juris (for Harrison's new imprint ASG), and the solo soundpainting of Lake Michigan by Scott DuBois. Completing the dense playlist, are the new albums by Joe Lovano and Dave Douglas' Soundprints Quintet, the first of new material after a string of Wayne Shorter tribute albums, Tell No Lies and Ocelot. The playlist features Mario Pavone, Thomas Chapin, Mike Sarin; Joe Lovano, Dave Douglas; Tell No Lies; Paul Jarret; Unscientific Italians; Skúli Sverrisson with Bill Frisell; Csaba Palotai, Steve Arguelles; Joel Harrison; Scott DuBois; and Ocelot.

Nebu and Ulys are back, discussing Big Grease Vaseline. The supposed inventor of Vaseline stole it from poor workers in Pennsylvania; and more importantly, Native Americans have used some variations of the magical petroleum jelly before that. Anyway, why did Canadians insert random bottles in their rectums... we investigate. UNcs hosts discuss Big Grease Vaseline and how its bottles ended up in rectums in the 1930s. See more: https://uncivunsci.github.io/ep4.html.
Nebu & Ulys discuss Ulys's cult #TopoLife by Topo Chico. Before the Cavity Giant Coca Cola bought Topo Chico, they got in hot water for having too many radioactive beta particles in their 'mineral' water. Was Ulys having a hard time reading plain words because of #BetaHigh? Nebu wants to join the cult, proclaiming 'I just like the drink,' insisting on taking Topo Chico to the moon with diamond hands, but only if they disavow the Cavity Giant (which may bring them a bigger class action lawsuit for those extra beta particles anyway). UNcs hosts discuss Topo Chico and its radioaactive beta particles. See more: https://uncivunsci.github.io/ep3.html.
