The importance of HIV testing The COVID-19 pandemic has led people to delay testing and treatments for a variety of diseases and conditions. This includes HIV testing.During the pandemic, the number HIV diagnosis decline, but that decline is most attributed to declines in testing, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Experts attribute this decline to less frequent visits to health centers, reduced outreach services, and shifting of public health staff to COVID-19 response activities. June 27 is National HIV Testing Day, a day to encourage people to get tested for HIV, know their status, and get linked to care and treatment.But who should be tested?"The CDC recommends that everyone over the age of 13 be tested for HIV at least once in their lifetime," says Dr. Stacey Rizza, an infectious diseases specialist at Mayo Clinic. "This is endorsed by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services and paid for by all private insurance companies. So no matter what your background is, if you've never been tested for HIV, you should get tested. And that's because many people with HIV have no idea they have it. They can be completely asymptomatic for a very long time and not only have the virus causing ill effects on themselves, but they're at risk of potentially transmitting it to others. We need to do a better job in the U.S., particularly as health care providers, to follow that recommendation, and to make sure that every adult has had an HIV test at least once in a lifetime." If HIV is not treated, it can lead to AIDS. But effective therapies can control HIV, which is why getting tested and seeking treatment is so important."We know now that if somebody is on effective HIV therapy, and the virus in their body is suppressed, it's not gone. But it's suppressed. Their risk of transmitting it to somebody else is close to zero," explains Dr. Rizza. "So if you just pause for a minute and think about that implication. That means if every human on planet Earth who had HIV were diagnosed, linked with health care, and on effective therapy, then HIV would be gone from the human race in one generation."Like many other areas of health care, health disparities play a significant role when it comes to testing, diagnosis and treatment of HIV. Those disparities have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Improving awareness and community outreach can help combat these disparities."It's the same old thing that works for every disease state," says Dr. Rizza. "Its education, engagement and role-modeling within the communities. That education is essential. And it needs to be done in the community. We can't wait for people to come to us, and then we'll teach them, we need to get into those worlds, with people who are leaders in those communities, and have ways to bring diagnosis, treatment and preventive measures to them." Dr. Rizza says disparities in diagnosing HIV face an additional challenge that some other diseases do not: stigma."It is just heartbreaking," says Dr. Rizza. "And the stigma that had been around HIV for a very long time is part of what prevents people from coming forward, from taking the initiatives to prevent the disease, to prevent the infection — and also to be diagnosed — out of fear of the answer. And, so, we also need those community leaders to help break down the stigma issue in addition to educating and bringing diagnosis and treatment closer to home."On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Rizza discusses the importance of HIV testing and improvements in therapies to treat HIV.

Prize-winning AI research, bringing machine learning tools into the radiotherapy clinic To mark AI in Medical Physics Week, in this episode of the Physics World Weekly podcast we take a look at some of the many applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in medical physics and healthcare.
First up, we talk to Rishab Jain, a high school student named as America’s Top Young Scientist when he was just 13, and one of the winners of this year’s Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair, the world’s largest high school science competition. He tells us about the science behind the awards, both of which were for his research on using AI for healthcare applications, and why he thinks AI will play a big role in how we treat patients in the future.
Also featured this week is Todd McNutt, who is co-founder and chief scientist at Oncospace. He talks about how machine learning can improve our understanding of the impact of radiation on patients. He also explains how AI-based tools can be used to personalize radiation therapy for cancer patients and how Oncospace is helping to bring such tools into the clinic.

Carbon, WHAT?!! In forestry school we learned about photosynthesis; the process by which trees use sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to form sugars and oxygen.  But most of us did not learn much about how to purposely manage forest carbon once it’s in the ecosystem.  In this two-part series on forest carbon, we will explore ways to enhance carbon storage and sequestration through our silviculture.  In today’s episode (Part 1) we talk with Alexandra Kosiba, Ph.D., the first state climate forester with the Vermont Department of Forest, Parks, and Recreation, to better understand the basics of forest carbon.For more information, show resources, or CEU/CFEs visit:
Fly on the Slash Wall Necessity is the mother of invention, even in silviculture.  Foresters in the eastern US often struggle with regenerating trees due to severe deer browse.  Yet mitigating solutions, like fencing and tree shelters, are costly and problematic.  What if you could use a resource that is abundant, on-site, and cheap to keep the deer out?  On this episode of SilviCast we explore the innovative strategy of "slash walls," or the use of logging residues to form deer barriers around regenerating stands.  Join us as we explore the ins and outs of slash walls with Peter Smallidge - New York State Extension Forester, Brett Chedzoy - Regional Extension Forester at Cornell, and Jason Hennes – Forest Ranger with the Wisconsin DNR. Learn more about slash walls, earn CEUs/CFEs, and connect with SilviCast on our website:

Knee Pain Solutions Naturally! Key Takeaways:  Understand the anatomy of your knees before any discussion of treatment and pain prevention.  Learn about the bones and tissues around your knees.  Understand your knee has a unique ability to rotate and bend.  Tend to your tendons and have a clear visual understanding of your ligaments.  Find ways to define your knee pain so your doctor can help you get to the root of the problem.  When to use hot or cold therapy or a walking aid.  The reasons surgery must be the last resort.  Learn simple and low impact exercises for your knees to be done at home and at your gym.  The good and bad impact shoes have on your knees.  Ways to work your core, i.e., Tai Chi, Yoga.  How acupuncture can help and all the benefits PRP or Prolozone therapies can offer patients with knee pain.  A great list of natural supplements for your joints and how certain foods can be your medicine.  Episode Summary:  Knee pain is one of the most common complaints of Americans of all ages, according to the Mayo Clinic Health System. The pain can result from an injury, arthritis or other condition.   Our knees are significant to moving out bodies and to simply get around. It isn’t something many people think about until they are in pain.   Some of the biggest challenges I find for patients with knee or joint pain have been ways for them to describe what is causing their pain. If you don’t understand the anatomy of your knees, its ligaments, tendons and bones, it can be complicated conversation. Learning more and having patience to implement natural regenerative solutions, rather than quick fixes like surgery, is a discussion many are now valuing. Always give a proven natural solution a chance first and allow your body to tap into its own resources to heal itself, when this is an option for you.  Short Bio:   Dr. Robyn Benson is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM) who brings an innovative and game-changing approach to today’s health care.

EP053: New Management Approach for Recreational Fisheries | Dr. Michelle Duval In the latest episode of The Guide Post, Willy and Will sit down with Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council Member Dr. Michelle Duval to discuss the recently approved Harvest Control Rule, which will change the way managers set recreational measures for black sea bass, summer flounder, scup, and bluefish. Dr. Duval, who has an extensive background in fisheries ecology and recreational fisheries issues, describes what the traditional process looked like and how the approved approach will operate.The concept of the Harvest Control Year, and efforts to get it implemented quickly, have generated a lot of buzz and controversy in recent months. We certainly had our concerns, and still have several that remain unaddressed—namely, will the Harvest Control Rule work as intended, or will it increase the risk of overfishing and unsustainably managed fisheries? Follow along to learn more about what exactly the Harvest Control Rule is and what it might mean for the management of these four critical species.This podcast is presented by Costa Sunglasses.Follow ASGA on Social to stay up to date on current events!Instagram = @SaltwaterGuidesAssociationFacebook = American Saltwater Guides Association

Christopher Blattman, "Why We Fight: The Roots of War and the Paths to Peace" (Viking, 2022) In Why We Fight: The Roots of War and the Paths to Peace (Viking, 2022), Chris Blattman explains the five reasons why conflict (rarely) blooms into war, and how to interrupt that deadly process. It's easy to overlook the underlying strategic forces of war, to see it solely as a series of errors, accidents, and emotions gone awry. It's also easy to forget that war shouldn't happen-and most of the time it doesn't. Around the world, there are millions of hostile rivalries, yet only a tiny fraction erupt into violence. Too many accounts of conflict forget this. With a counterintuitive approach, Blattman reminds us that most rivals loathe one another in peace. That's because war is too costly to fight. Enemies almost always find it better to split the pie than spoil it or struggle over thin slices. So, in those rare instances when fighting ensues, we should ask: what kept rivals from compromising? Why We Fight draws on decades of economics, political science, psychology, and real-world interventions to lay out the root causes and remedies for war, showing that violence is not the norm; that there are only five reasons why conflict wins over compromise; and how peacemakers turn the tides through tinkering, not transformation. From warring states to street gangs, ethnic groups and religious sects to political factions, there are common dynamics to heed and lessons to learn. Along the way, we meet vainglorious European monarchs, African dictators, Indian mobs, Nazi pilots, British football hooligans, ancient Greeks, and fanatical Americans. Realistic and optimistic, this is a book that lends new meaning to the old adage, "Give peace a chance."Javier Mejia is an economist teaching at Stanford University, whose work focuses on the intersection between social networks and economic history.

Dayna Bowen Matthew, "Just Health: Treating Structural Racism to Heal America" (NYU Press, 2022) In the United States, systemic racism is embedded in policies and practices, thereby structuring American society to perpetuate inequality and all of the symptoms and results of that inequality. Racial, social, and class inequities and the public health crises in the United States are deeply intertwined, their roots and manifestations continually pressuring each other. This has been both illuminated and exacerbated since 2020, with the Movement for Black Lives (BLM) and the disproportionate effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on historically disadvantaged groups within the U.S. Dr. Dayna Bowen Matthew, Dean of the George Washington University Law School, explores and unpacks the public health crisis that is racism in her new book Just Health: Treating Structural Racism to Heal America (NYU Press, 2022). She describes how structural inequality undermines the interests of a thriving nation and the steps we can take to undo the pervasive nature of inequality to create more equitable and just systems.Dr. Bowen Matthew describes her personal relationship with the concepts of structural inequality and racism in the public health system, opening with a heart-wrenching ode to her father’s experience with poverty and prejudice, which ultimately led to his premature death. Through her family’s story, she explains how structural inequality is perpetuated on a large-enough scale and with a powerful-enough scope so as to virtually guarantee social outcomes that reflect predetermined hierarchies based on race and/or class, hierarchies that remain consistent across generations. These disproportionate outcomes are often dismissed as due to comorbidities without the attention paid to social factors are the primary cause of comorbidities, because oppression in its many forms blocks equitable access to the social determinants of health. These social determinants include, but are not limited to, clean and safe housing, adequate education, nutritious food and fresh water, access to recreational spaces, and mental health services. Individuals who lack these, through no fault of their own, are then obligated to accept disproportionate care, illness, and disturbingly shorter life spans then are the norm for many Americans and are much closer to life spans in impoverished countries. Dr. Bowen Matthew presents evidence of discrimination in housing, education, employment, and the criminal justice system, detailing how law has played a central role in erecting disproportionate access to the social determinants of health, and therefore is a requisite tool for dismantling it. She provides a clear path to undoing structural racism and providing an equitable society to all, encouraging health providers, law makers, and citizens all to fight to dismantle the hurdles that many patients face because of the zip code in which they live.Emma R.

Susan Hartman, "City of Refugees: The Story of Three Newcomers Who Breathed Life into a Dying American Town" (Beacon Press, 2022) City of Refugees: The Story of Three Newcomers Who Breathed Life into a Dying American Town (Beacon Press, 2022) paints an intimate portrait of the newcomers revitalizing a fading industrial town – illuminating the larger canvas of refugee life in 21st century America. For many Americans, ‘refugee’ still conjures up the image of a threatening outsider: a stranger who will steal jobs, or a family who will be a drain on the economy. Yet, most people know little about how refugees have actually fared in America: the lives they have built over generations and the cities they have transformed. In New York state, the old manufacturing town of Utica could have disappeared altogether if it wasn’t for the growing population of refugees who revved the economic engine – starting small businesses, renovating houses, and adding a fresh vitality to the community through cultural diversity. For eight years, journalist Susan Hartman followed three newcomers as they put down roots in a new city: Sadia, a bright, rebellious Somali Bantu girl battling her formidable mother; Ali, an Iraqi translator, still suffering trauma from the ongoing war in his homeland; and Mersiha, an ebullient Bosnian, who dreams of opening a café. They’re also the entry point to those leading the city: the mayor, teachers, doctors, and firefighters, who have adapted to the refugees that have made the city their home. Hartman explores the ways these refugees have stitched together their American and traditional identities, the dreams they have for their new lives in Utica, and the pain some still carry from their pasts.Stephen Pimpare is director of the Public Service & Nonprofit Leadership program and Faculty Fellow at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire.

Joni Schwartz and John R. Chaney, "Gifts from the Dark: Learning from the Incarceration Experience" (Lexington Books, 2022) While in no way supporting the systemic injustices and disparities of mass incarceration, in Gifts from the Dark: Learning from the Incarceration Experience (Lexington Books, 2021), Joni Schwartz and John Chaney argue that we have much to learn from those who have been and are in prison. Schwartz and Chaney profile the contributions of literary giants, social activists, entrepreneurs, and other talented individuals who, despite the disorienting dilemma of incarceration, are models of adult transformative learning that positively impact the world. In focusing upon how men and women have chosen the worst moments of their lives as a baseline not to define, but to refine themselves, Gifts from the Dark promises to alter the limited mindset of incarceration as a solely one-dimensional, deficit event.Joni Schwartz is professor of humanities at the City University of New York – LaGuardia Community College and adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice Graduate Studies Program.John Chaney is assistant professor and director of Criminal Justice programs for City University of New York -- LaGuardia Community College.Schneur Zalman Newfield is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Borough of Manhattan Community College, City University of New York, and the author of Degrees of Separation: Identity Formation While Leaving Ultra-Orthodox Judaism (Temple University Press, 2020).

Carles Lalueza-Fox, "Inequality: A Genetic History" (MIT Press, 2022) Inequality is an urgent global concern, with pundits, politicians, academics, and best-selling books all taking up its causes and consequences. In Inequality: A Genetic History (MIT Press, 2022), Carles Lalueza-Fox offers an entirely new perspective on the subject, examining the genetic marks left by inequality on humans throughout history. Lalueza-Fox describes genetic studies, made possible by novel DNA sequencing technologies, that reveal layers of inequality in past societies, manifested in patterns of migration, social structures, and funerary practices. Through their DNA, ancient skeletons have much to tell us, yielding anonymous stories of inequality, bias, and suffering.Lalueza-Fox, a leader in paleogenomics, offers the deep history of inequality. He explores the ancestral shifts associated with migration and describes the gender bias unearthed in these migrations--the brutal sexual asymmetries, for example, between male European explorers and the women of Latin America that are revealed by DNA analysis. He considers social structures, and the evidence that high social standing was inherited--the ancient world was not a meritocracy. He untangles social and genetic factors to consider whether wealth is an advantage in reproduction, showing why we are more likely to be descended from a king than a peasant. And he explores the effects of ancient inequality on the human gene pool. Marshaling a range of evidence, Lalueza-Fox shows that understanding past inequalities is key to understanding present ones.Galina Limorenko is a doctoral candidate in Neuroscience with a focus on biochemistry and molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases at EPFL in Switzerland.

Life and Death at a Human Decomposition Facility Few bear witness to human decomposition. We embalm and seal bodies in caskets, and bury them six feet underground. Decomposition happens out of sight and out of mind, or in the case of cremation, is skipped over entirely.But at human decomposition facilities, sometimes known as "body farms," students and researchers see rotting corpses every day.

How to discuss stopping screening: Mara Schonberg Cancer screening is designed to detect slow growing cancers that on average take 10 years to cause harm.  The benefits of mammography breast cancer screening rise with age, peak when women are in their 60s, and decline thereafter. That is why the American College of Physicians recommendation regarding mammography for women over age 75 is:  In average-risk women aged 75 years or older or in women with a life expectancy of 10 years or less, clinicians should discontinue screening for breast cancer. Today we talk with Mara Schonberg, who has been tackling this issue from a variety of angles: building an index to estimate prognosis for older adults, writing about how to talk with older adults about stopping screening, a randomized trial of her decision aid, and how to talk to older adults about their long term prognosis.  In the podcast she gives very practical advice with language to use, and references her decision aid, which is available on ePrognosis here. Mara keeps working at it, and the more she works, the closer we are to fine. -@AlexSmithMD

Jennifer D. Sciubba, "8 Billion and Counting: How Sex, Death, and Migration Shape Our World" (W. W. Norton, 2022) As the world nears 8 billion people, the countries that have led the global order since World War II are becoming the most aged societies in human history. At the same time, the world's poorest and least powerful countries are suffocating under an imbalance of population and resources. In 8 Billion and Counting, political demographer Jennifer D. Sciubba argues that the story of the twenty-first century is less a story about exponential population growth, as the previous century was, than it is a story about differential growth--marked by a stark divide between the world's richest and poorest countries.Drawing from decades of research, policy experience, and teaching, Sciubba employs stories and statistics to explain how demographic trends, like age structure and ethnic composition, are crucial signposts for future violence and peace, repression and democracy, poverty and prosperity. Although we have a diverse global population, demographic trends often follow predictable patterns that can help professionals across the corporate, nonprofit, government, and military sectors understand the global strategic environment.Through the lenses of national security, global health, and economics, Sciubba demonstrates the pitfalls of taking population numbers at face value and extrapolating from there. Instead, she argues, we must look at the forces in a society that amplify demographic trends and the forces that dilute them, particularly political institutions, or the rules of the game. She shows that the most important skills in demographic analysis are naming and being aware of your preferences, rethinking assumptions, and asking the right questions.Provocative and engrossing, 8 Billion and Counting: How Sex, Death, and Migration Shape Our World (W. W. Norton, 2022) is required reading for business leaders, policy makers, and anyone eager to anticipate political, economic, and social risks and opportunities. A deeper understanding of fertility, mortality, and migration promises to point toward the investments we need to make today to shape the future we want tomorrow.Galina Limorenko is a doctoral candidate in Neuroscience with a focus on biochemistry and molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases at EPFL in Switzerland.

Max Holleran, "Yes to the City: Millennials and the Fight for Affordable Housing" (Princeton UP, 2022) The exorbitant costs of urban housing and the widening gap in income inequality are fueling a combative new movement in cities around the world. A growing number of influential activists aren't waiting for new public housing to be built. Instead, they're calling for more construction and denser cities in order to increase affordability. Yes to the City: Millennials and the Fight for Affordable Housing (Princeton UP, 2022) offers an in-depth look at the "Yes in My Backyard" (YIMBY) movement. From its origins in San Francisco to its current cadre of activists pushing for new apartment towers in places like Boulder, Austin, and London, Max Holleran explores how urban density, once maligned for its association with overpopulated slums, has become a rallying cry for millennial activists locked out of housing markets and unable to pay high rents. Holleran provides a detailed account of YIMBY activists campaigning for construction, new zoning rules, better public transit, and even candidates for local and state office. YIMBY groups draw together an unlikely coalition, from developers and real estate agents to environmentalists, and Holleran looks at the increasingly contentious battles between market-driven pragmatists and rent-control idealists. Arguing that advocates for more housing must carefully weigh their demands for supply with the continuing damage of gentrification, he shows that these individuals see high-density urbanism and walkable urban spaces as progressive statements about the kind of society they would like to create. Chronicling a major shift in housing activism during the past twenty years, Yes to the City considers how one movement has reframed conversations about urban growth.Stephen Pimpare is director of the Public Service & Nonprofit Leadership program and Faculty Fellow at the Carsey School of Public Policy at the University of New Hampshire.

Darwinian Racism vs. Evolutionary Ethics that Devalue All Men Equally Today’s ID the Future again features Darwinian Racism author and historian Richard Weikart and radio host Hank Hanegraaff exploring the pernicious impact Charles Darwin and Darwinism have had on modern ethics. Ideas laid out in Darwin’s The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man fueled scientific racism in the United States and Nazi Germany, Weikart says, and undergird the ideas of contemporary white nationalists, who tend to be virulently anti-Christian and pro-Darwin. We can take some comfort from the fact that white nationalists are a fringe movement and that most evolutionists today are anti-racist, Weikart says, but he notes that Darwinian materialism has poisoned mainstream ethics in another way, by devaluing humans generally. This is why someone as mainstream Read More ›

Dr. Egnor also speaks briefly on the evidence he sees for intelligent design in the brain, what atheist and science writer Isaac Asimov once described as “the most complicated organization of matter that we know.” Egnor says that may be true but that we needn’t look to the brain for confirmation that something in nature required intelligent design. We can find powerful evidence of it in something far humbler. Tune in to listen to his answer, and stay tuned for Read More ›

55. Are our schools doing enough to support autistic students? According to the latest research from the CDC, nearly 2 percent of all children in the United States sit on the autism spectrum. And of those millions of kids, the vast majority attend America's public schools. With diagnoses of autism on the rise in the U.S., are we equipped to provide these students with the assistance they need? In this episode, Dr. Connie Kasari, Professor of Human Development and Psychology at UCLA, joins Kevin to help us better understand the challenges that students with autism face and what our schools can be doing to help overcome those obstacles.
TSC Talks! Final podcast~Wrapping it Up & Thanks Jill wraps up the podcast! I started in 2016 interviewing my kids and how they were affected by Tuberous Sclerosis Complex. It was absolutely divine inspiration from the start and branched out shortly after to interviewing community members and other professionals who worked with those affected. From there, I explored many different topics, providing information and resources in interview form, all with relevance to the individuas and/or parent/caregivers affected by a chronic illness like TSC. Pushing the boundaries of what was deemed "safe and effective" by our medical system, I continued to put info out there based on my own lived experience as a parent/caregiver living and dealing with what I'd come to discover is CPTSD if you want to use a label. It was my vision and still is that all "remedies" for improving the quality of life of all involved in the wheels of chronic illness, particularly one such as TSC which affects all the vital body organs, will be an option for all.

Why should we hold back the river when there are so many speaking about how their lives have been impacted by sharing their truths, sharing what's worked for them and what potentially might help another ease the very real and almost daily traumas of attempting to live with an open heart and navigate our inverted systems of care.

Many of these podcasts go against the grain of what people are comfortable hearing. There are always positive takeaways but there are some heavy heavy experiences that people are walking through and talking about and must be given voice. I think through honest conversation, and taking full responsibility for one's reactions to other's sharing from their most painful, heart-wrenching moments, we can begin to hear each other once again at least long enough to realize, we're all having vastly different experiences yet we all long to be here now, safe, loved, whole, home.

Thanks for tuning in and being here there and everywhere. It's been the pleasure of a lifetime to have the opportunity to create and share this work.

Love Jill

Episode 18: How Can The Sweat Of An Amazonian Tree Frog Help Your Microbiome? Join us as we discuss Kambo Medicine Therapy with Todd Shipman.    So what is Kambo and why are we talking about it? Kambo is a non-psychoactive traditional amazonian medicine and is legal in the United States. Kambo’s secretions, while used as a defense mechanism, and deadly to most animals, provide many health benefits for humans. The secretion is then applied through superficial burns that are made into the skin. Our interest in Kambo, aside from its wide ranging applications, lies in the positive effects on the microbiome.     While more studies are needed in this area of Kambo research, many people with gut issues, Lyme, parasites, constipation, SIBO, stress etc. find immense relief in their symptoms when they do Kambo. Some find relief after one session and some do it a couple of times a year.   Episode Takeaways:   What is Kambo?  The sweat that comes from a large tree frog in the amazon It’s a defense mechanism to them, but to humans it has several healing properties The sweat contains bioactive peptides It is considered non-psychoactive It is applied fresh off of the frog on to the person's skin   Historical use Tribes in the amazon use Kambo to  Magnify their senses prior to hunting Correctional behavior of children Attract a mate Fertility   How is Kambo sourced?    From tribes in the amazon Kambo samples can be good for a couple of years   What are the benefits?  Beneficial Peptides like Dermorphin - stronger than morphine  Dermaseptin - strongest natural antiviral, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal  And many more Deltorphin, Phyllokinin, Phyllomedusin, Adenoregulein, Phyllokinin, Phyllocarulein, Caerulein and Sauvagine and more… Many people with health challenges like lyme, parasites, addiction, depression, anxiety, fertility, fatigue, and stress experience improvements after using Kambo  Some people use it to increase athletic endurance and to enhance their energy and performance  Early research shows benefits are sustained up to 3 months out   Dosing First, find a seasoned practitioner who is familiar with the specific challenges you wish to improve  There are specific dosing considerations for different challenges, ailments,  goals  You should NEVER try Kambo on your own without guidance   What is the mechanism?  Several different peptides are at work in the … Central nervous system Digestive system Lymphatic system Endocrine system Microbiome benefits - there are 5 peptides that seem to benefit the microbiome Some help release trauma which helps gut performance almost immediately Some promote calmness which helps to release people from a state of constant fight or flight Some stimulate myoelectric activity  And some reset the liver   What is the ceremony or experience like? Focus on calming first  Starts with breath work A calming tobacco is offered Meditate on goals A small dot to burn to expose skin is applied to a designated area Fasting for 5-8 hours takes place prior Drink 2 liters of water within 5 minutes to start the Kambo 9 out of 10 people experience within the first minute elevated heart rate Then become flushed and hot, then you become pale  Then purging happens 2-3 times is pretty common  Once the Kambo is removed from th

Kelly and Tony Trent will talk about their son Tyler who became a legend while attending Purdue University during his battle with Osteosarcoma. Tyler's story is one of courage, inspiration, and unfortunately heartbreak . Tyler Trent was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in 2014 after what was thought to be only a broken arm after throwing a frisbee. His parents Kelly and Tony  will talk about Tyler's incredible journey which eventually became known throughout the country due to his connection to the Purdue University Football team.Attending Purdue while a freshman , Tyler and a friend decided to camp out the night before at the  football stadium before their game with Michigan. What was most unusual about this was that Tyler had just completed a chemotherapy treatment 6 hours before. When head football coach Jeff Brohm got word about what Tyler did, he visited him the next morning.That began the amazing connection that Tyler developed with the entire Purdue team, especially with starting quarterback David Blough.In 2018, as Tyler's condition worsened and he was unable to return to school, he still made his presence felt by predicting that his beloved Boilermakers would upset undefeated Ohio State in a Nationally Televised game. Purdue destroyed the Buckeyes 49-20 . Tyler attended the game despite being very sick the week leading up to kickoff, and he was really the star of the night.Sadly, Tyler passed away less than 3 moths later. His legacy however, will continue for many years to come.

Ep. 31 - Harvard Astrophysics: Machine Learning & Interstellar Dust Clouds ft. Andrew Saydjari Our guest this week, Andrew Saydjari, is midway through his PhD in Astrophysics at Harvard University. Andrew's research lies at the intersection of Astrophysics and Machine Learning, and he's studying the massive dust clouds in our very own galaxy. Tune in to tap into the wealth of knowledge that Andrew's bringing to Episode 31!

On this week's episode we answer questions like:
Why should you care about interstellar dust clouds that are a million times as wide as the earth's orbit around the sun?
What do spectrums of light tell us about the molecular make-up of these clouds?
How much information can I glean from just a single image of a molecular cloud out there in space?
And how does the symmetry of molecules factor into all this?

Roe v. Wade Is Overturned On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court officially reversed Roe v. Wade, declaring that the constitutional right to abortion no longer exists. For nearly 50 years, Americans have had a constitutional right to an abortion. We're about to find out what the country looks like without one. The court's ruling doesn't mean a nationwide ban– it allows states to do what they want. NPR's Nina Totenberg walks us through the ruling, and NPR's Sarah McCammon discusses the states where "trigger bans," or laws passed in anticipation of the Supreme Court's action, are already in place.In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment to help you make sense of what's going on in your community.Email us at
