"Show you this in a minute. Your mitochondria DNA are located exactly where the ATP production is. And when ATP is being produced, a byproduct of free radicals. And so these free radicals are constantly damaging your mitochondria DNA. So their lifespan, your mitochondrial DNA lifespan is averages between ten and 20 days compared to your regular DNA that lasts a lifetime. And the problem is when your DNA gets damaged from these free radicals, they misfire. They send wrong communications to this other DNA to the cell membrane. And I make the analogy, I consider the mitochondria DNA sort of like air controllers at an airport. And if your air controllers were sick or damaged, planes would crash, right? Well, that's exactly what's happening in your cells. When your mitochondria DNA get damaged, that's when your health starts to slide. That's when you start having cell damage being replicated. So let me show you exactly what's going on here. So here's that mitochondria. Remember, there's 2 million of these in each cell in your brain. So it has two, there's the regular outside membrane, and then you have your inner membrane, and I'll explain to you why there's that second one. This is where the ATP is produced, and this is also where your mitochondria DNA are located. But that's why they are getting damaged. They're literally getting fried. But as a comparison, let me show you. Here's the cell, okay? And these are the mitochondria. These little peanut shaped things. And there's 2 million of these in your brain. And here's your regular cellular DNA. But inside each one of these guys is where your mitochondria DNA is where the free radicals are being produced. And so if you've ever sat by a bonfire, you got too close to it. Sparks would fly, right? And you would maybe get burned. Well, that's what same thing is happening to your mitochondria DNA. They are located

"Millions sometimes per cell. So you need to know that they are critical to everything that's going on. So the interesting thing about mitochondria, because I pointed out the DNA that's in yourself, and you have 25,000 DNA, the mitochondria have their own DNA. You know, all the very own. And what's really cool is that mitochondria DNA all comes from women. It none of it comes from the men. Sorry, guys. And there's only 37, I think there's 37 mitochondria DNA out of 25,000. And you say, oh, how important can 37 out of 25,000 be? Well, let me tell you. Those 37 control everything. And a third of them are directly control what's called the ATP generation, which is the currency is the fuel, the energy that is generated. And but here's the problem. Those 37 mitochondrial DNA, they sit right inside the mitochondria. And I'm going to show that picture again. Your regular DNA is somewhere in yourself. But your mitochondria DNA are inside the mitochondria themselves. And that's exactly where the ATP is produced. What you think would be sounds great, right? Well, here's the problem. When you generate ATP, something called free radicals, especially ROS, which are oxygenated free radicals. Are released. And those free radicals are damaging. And because the mitochondrial DNA are exactly where the free radicals are located, unlike your regular DNA, which is far, far away from the mitochondria, those mitochondria get damaged all the time. They have an average lifespan of between ten and 30 days compared to your regular DNA, which lasts a lifetime. So if you've ever sat near a bonfire or a fireplace, you know if you get too close, you get sparks flying, right? And you can get burned. So your mitochondria, DNA, that control everything in your body. They control the mitochondria, they control your DNA, they control your cellular communication. They control how diseased cells should be killed or healthy cells. They control everything. And they are getting fried. Every nanosecond from free radicals. I think a good analogy for people just to distill all of this is, can you imagine if you had a furnace burning, right? So the furnace would give you, if I had a fire, right? And I'm putting wood in the fire and the fire is burning the wood and generating heat, but in the process it's also releasing smoke. Yes. So that's really what mitochondria are in a nutshell in terms of an analogy..

"Injustice there are faff related issues in tennis over the dress before bathroom breaks, but it that way. But yeah, it sounds all right. This sounds like a thing that's worth trialing. I would be very anxious about it if the WTA, if this were tennis wide, I'm not sure that's okay and you could argue that having more imbalances in rules between the WTA and the ATP doesn't feel like a good thing. You know, we already think the fact that the heat policy is different for women's tennis them for men's is annoying and just one of those strange quirks of tennis that should probably be ironed out. But I can't bring myself to get either hugely excited or worked up. It sounds like it sounds sound decent. To me, it's also won't eliminate a lot of the problem which is the bathrooms are often way away from the courts. It can take minutes to get to the bathroom. So if you've got, let's say you've got a three minute journey to the bathroom. 5 minutes you're in the bathroom changing your sweaty pants. Three minutes on the way back. Boom, 11 minute bathroom break. But it may just take away a little bit of the Mickey taking stuff. Yes. Sits surpass and one or two of those. Yes. Well, a lot of players in fact have gone up to in recent months. Yes. Yes. We'll see, I guess. But if this is an acknowledgment that there's too much faff in tennis, please please powers that be turn your attention to other areas of the game. IE the bit after they walk out and oh my God, David. The cellophane wrapper. They have a sit down after they've done the 22nd walk on to court. Unacceptable. Unacceptable. Honestly, and with very Medvedev because they don't get on in this needle in everything. It was, you know, they were who can drag this out longest, you know? It was all alpha who can get to the net last and it's very signature move now is to go to the net with a new racket or a nearly strong racket in its cellophane. So he's standing there almost like doing an advertisement for unnecessary plastic. Which is just not acceptable. I mean, we've got a tennis has a plastic problem anyway. I don't know why that's not more regulated, but just waving around a bit of clearly unnecessary plastic and making it part of your pre match faf routine is just revolting. Occasionally just sort of offering it in the direction of the empire to take it. Why was the on priority? Do it yourself and go and find a recycling bin. That feels even more faff time. Honestly, it is ridiculous. And they do all I think it's highlighted quite literally at the ATP finals because they do this amazing light show. You know, the whole stadiums in darkness, the plays are in spotlights. So and that remains the case for the coin toss, which is sort of elevated to theatrical status there. Muhammad Leone just extending his laundry list of admin items as long as he possibly can because he's all miked up and you know, we did a little pirouette in one of his coin tosses. So before that happens, after they've walked out, the lights remain down and the drama is still there. But you've just got players faffing around. With a with a bench and a bag and going to get tout, oh my God. Oh, it's unreal. This has been building up folks. So, you know. Just the arrogance and complacency of tennis to think that its viewers will stick with it through that. Knowing they've still got a 7 minute warmup or whatever it is to come. I am a bit surprised given that that one was used at the next gen as well. You come out and you've got to be playing within a minute again out there or whatever it is. I'm surprised or having the coin toss. I'm surprised that they haven't managed to bring that in quicker and tighten that one up. But it must be coming. I would have thought. So. Lemon hopes, it's a no brainer. There's hope Catherine is hope. Talking to people who have to wait around a bit for some news. Alpha Hewitt has been waiting two years to find out whether the event that he plays and the condition that he has had all of his life and the reason he's playing wheelchair tennis, whether it would be reclassified or not. And he's found out, I think in the last few days that he is going to be allowed to continue his career. And I'm really, I'm really happy for him. And he's only, I didn't realize he's only 23 years old. And he was basically facing retirement. They reclassified his sport and didn't let him play. And he's won 18 Grand Slam titles of one type or another. And so, you know, I'm really pleased for him. Unimaginable to have that hang over you, really? Just not even knowing if you can continue your career. At age 23, that you might have it wrestled from you yanked from you unimaginable, and I'm so relieved for him. Yeah. That's great news. Apparently he was in floods of tears the moment he was told. You can just imagine that weight lifting off in that moment. Absolutely. Good for you, Alfie. And hopefully many more big matches alongside Gordon Reed to come in the future for us all to enjoy. So I think that's about it for tennis news in terms of what's going on on the court and in the tour as we've said Matt is in Madrid. So we're going to be bringing you the best that we can from the Davis Cup finals. We've got 7 podcasts lined up between now and the end of the event,.

"So the ATP finals are over, Catherine Whitaker spent most of the day. Asleep. But she's here. Awakened just the Nick of time. Hello, Catherine. Just about scrambled myself into the land of the living in time for the podcast. You're welcome. Well, it's obviously to see you. How's your week been? Tiring, tiring, but good. Successful. Good. Yep. Yeah. Well, we've enjoyed watching you, Matt and I, you know, we watched on the TV and we say, oh, we know her. And yeah, no, it's been, it's been an interesting week of tennis that we can bring you up to date with obviously last time we were with you with Friday night. We'd just seen all the group stage matches apart from Novak Djokovic against Cameron nori, which in all honesty didn't mean an awful lot and as expected Djokovic sailed his way through that. And so that left us with semifinals and final to catch up on. And good to also have Catherine on for the first time because she's been a swanning around on TV for the last week and not enough time for us. So, you know, it's nice to see her again. Yeah. Blame the extra hour gap between sessions, David and the hour later. Much start time in Turin. Do I sense Catherine that of all the things that you experienced of Turin's staging that maybe that's the one that has got to go? The session timings. Yes. Yeah, I mean, spoiler alert, I wasn't out in Turing. Our studios in hounslow, we had done about Croft out there for us and we were similar. Crossing out there frequently, but I wasn't out there. So the time difference meant that night session much in the night session. Singles match for us in the UK was starting at 8 p.m., but locally they were starting at 9 p.m. and I know that cultures are different in I'm not quite sure what it's like in Italy. I know in Spain, you know, everything's different people go out for dinner far far later than they do here. But I just think that's too late. I think it's too late. It's too late the year after new session starts too early, and the evening session starts too late. And there's a big old gap in the middle. Yep. And well. And now it's an app. So it's always a time. That's perfectly perfectly sort of packaged. It's you can't nap when you've got two mic packs and an ear pack attached to your waist. And you can't lie down because there's all sorts of stuff going on in your hair. Anyway, get the violins out for all my first world problems. There was a lot of could have been nap time that wasn't. Although I have to say if Catherine can't nap through that, then nobody can. Matt's not here today. He's in Madrid. We'll be catching up with him in a couple of days time when we are building up to the Davis Cup finals. He's out there for that. He's all right. He's successfully got himself over there and he's raring to go. So I can't wait to speak to math about what all that's like. Before we get on to talk about the actual ATP finals, we should bring you up to date with the latest as we know it at least, regarding punctual, because obviously it's a story we've been following all over the last week. And the very latest is that we've at least seen pictures of her. We've seen video footage of her at first of all a dinner and then at a tennis event, what we're told was in Beijing and then finally in a video called which was shown and pictured on the Olympics, the official Olympics website with punctual apparently having a conversation via video link with the IOC president Thomas Bach and in that 30 minute call as it was detailed. She said to have thanked him and the IOC and everybody who's inquiring about her well-being and informed them that she is safe. Well, at home in Beijing and requesting privacy at the end of the article, we are told that he invited her to dinner in the call and that she's accepted. In that article, there is no mention of any of the allegations that she made on her Weibo account, which started this entire situation and the concern over her well-being and the fact that all of her post and subsequently lots and lots of search references to her into tennis seemed to disappear from the Internet in China. And it seemed that they had been in the words of many of the China correspondents for the BBC that they had been scrubbed to use that terminology. This has not put the minds at rest of the WTA. Steve Simon, again, has been, or at least the spokesperson for the WTA is again set today that this is an insufficient information for us. We still want to be able to speak and for us to be absolutely assured that she is speaking without any influence over her. And that an investigation can take place into the allegations that she initially made. So they are still concerned. The AOC Catherine seemed to take a very different approach to this throughout. They've talked about quiet diplomacy being their way forward. I heard a lord co this morning talking on ready a four on the today program. And being pretty defensive of that position and kind of warning against the more combative adversarial, I suppose approach that the WTA have taken the ultimatum really that they've thrown down. But really this is not over the ad. I mean, it's great to see that she's at least seemingly if those are current pitchers and if they are reliable that she is okay physically. But that isn't enough, is it? No, no. No one near. I feel like I've learned more about the IOC and Thomas Bach in the last 24 hours than I have about punctual status. It is, as you say, these developments are. Reassuring of her physical state. But there's still no certainty in that because there is no absolute guarantees of the verified ability of the timing of these images, but assuming that it is reassuring of her physical state and nothing more and there is an awful lot more to this. That I admire and respect Steve Simon for it would be so easy now with the IOC and with Thomas Bart getting proof of life as it were and let's be honest, it would be very easy to go, okay, great. We've done we've pat ourselves on the back. We've done a good thing. We've done our bit. We can still salvage all our relationships and all our financial interests. And move on. And I think, you know, the easy bit is at the start saying, hey, this isn't right..

"In the evening of Friday with the final group stage match about to get underway between Novak Djokovic and Cameron nori a late alternate replacement for the injured player in that particular group, which was Stephanie sits a pass. And frankly, nothing can happen of note in it, that's because Djokovic has already qualified Cameron nori has already well lost his out. So basically, it's a dead rubber for the second night in a row, although last night's dead rubber was pretty good. So we'll get onto that in a little while. And yeah, basically the locals in Turin are putting, I guess you might say that the popular player in Yannick sinner and the big name in Novak Djokovic in prime time regardless of whether the match is mean anything. I think that pretty much sums it up. So Catherine's chatting away at the moment ahead of the Djokovic nori match and here we are in the tennis podcast to bring you up to date with it all. But before we do that, we'll bring you up to date with the latest involving punctual. As you know from, I guess, a lot of the media coverage you will have been following and certainly from our podcast over the last week, she still hasn't been heard from or spoken to or seen it certainly not from a verifiable source. We have seen some screenshots from of her within a tweet, but once again from somebody from the China state media so frankly, I don't think many people are taking that too seriously. But what they are taking seriously Matt is the ongoing story in itself and how distressing and worrying it is. And more and more players seem to be speaking out and Steve Simon, the WTA CEO is taking every chance he can to make his and the WTA's position about her and about their business in China, very, very clear. Yeah, absolutely. It's been quite tough, I think, to actually enjoy the tennis that's going on at the moment with this cloud hanging over the sport, although I say that, and it's a much bigger issue than a tennis issue. So it's an international incident now, quite frankly with the UN Amnesty International law demanding evidence of her whereabouts and safety yeah, I mean, I would say, again, how impressed I've been, we are with Steve Simon's leadership on this issue. His courage to take on China and his integrity to do the right thing. I think, you know, he sort of doubled down on all that on his latest appearance, public appearance, which was on CNN. Last night where he said, we're at a crossroads for our business with China, too many times in our world, we let business politics and money dictate what's right and wrong. And you know, I just think it's an incredible message that he's sending with this approach and this sort of hard line approach. Who knows? It may end up changing the way sporting governing bodies end up dealing with China. I don't know. Obviously, the other side to all this, as you said, is many, many more players speaking out about it. The vast majority of WTA players lots of ATP players as well. Been impressed by how quickly they've all mobile eyes and got behind it as well. You just won the sort of how much good it will do. It's obviously a very frightening and scary situation, but you've got to try everything you can to put as much pressure on, I think, and the tennis community is really doing that. That's certainly my instinct as well. I didn't know today that the IOC have taken a very different approach and they actually they said quite diplomacy is the way forward and the best way to achieve results which personally I don't buy. I think that sir Steve Simon and tennis is doing the right thing and I regard it as refreshing and I'm pleased that they're not just karate, frankly, and letting business and money get in the way of what they believe is right and wrong. They're being very clear about that. I did notice in an interview that the BBC did with Steve Simon today. They kind of put that to him in the interview and said are you at all worried that taking such a hard line approach might not yield the results you want? And quieter, more gentle negotiations and diplomatic efforts might be a better way. And Steve Simon was not having it. He his view is that this is he has no reservations about the way the way he's handled it so far and the way he will continue to handle it. It's just a little bit difficult and it's impossible really, but I have a hard time working out where it goes next and at what point if everybody's had their sign, everybody's spoken up and today, several of the big name players Andy Murray, lots of others and organizations as well, keep saying it, you know, what happens in a few days time, if everybody's had to say and we still don't know anything, or we still not confident about her whereabouts. The guy I don't know. But I'm just hoping for the best, really, which is kind of a horrible position, horrible powerless position to be in. But that's where we are. Yeah, I think certainly punctuates safety is of Paramount importance and that is the primary issue at the moment which everyone is getting behind. But I share your concerns in terms of where does this go if, you know, if so many people have already spoken out and there's been no answers. What's going to happen in a few days time a week's time? That's why I think it's important that we continue to talk about it, continue to put the pressure on, and I think the larger question of Tennessee's relationship with China I mean, it seems pretty untenable at this point, doesn't it?.

"And I actually think that that may now help her in the early start parts of next year, she's already got that under a belt. Now she can build again, and her game works on kind of all the surfaces. So I'm certainly closer to thinking that she will be part of a mix at some point in my lifetime than I was this time last year. A mix just not the mix. Next question from Nick prophet on Instagram. What would tend to be like if there was only one serve? Who would benefit and suffer the most? Would this impact the women's game or the men's game more if at all? It would surely impact the men's game more? Because it's a more served dominated game more points, cheap points are one on first serve. On men's tennis then, in women's tennis, and when you reduce it to one serve, okay, you'd have the occasional moment where a player would gamble, and that would be an interesting facet to the game, but basically you'd be seeing a second a second serve almost all of the time. Yeah, I wonder whether Nick profit was Diego Schwartzman's alias because. Schwartzman sort of plays the game with one serve. You know, he is at such a disadvantage compared to most of the other players in the field. And yet he's still managed to get into the top ten. I can't really picture his serve in my mind. I don't really notice it. It's a point starter. It really is nothing more than that. I think it hits a spot quite well. He's quite accurate with it. And he certainly just as he gets the most out of all his game, I think he does get something out of his serve. But he is at a disadvantage, a massive one compared to other players and you know, if you take the serve out, he would be doing better, I believe, even better, his return stats are fantastic. I think sometimes you hear sort of non tennis people think, well, why is it two serves in tennis? Like camp pros just get the ball into the court. Shouldn't they be able to do that? And yes, of course, they can. I think it would detract from the game if you took away the second serve. I think it would take away an aspect of the game, which I enjoy, which is a great return. I try and decode a great server, you know, we've enjoyed Andy marry against John Isner or Djokovic against tsonga or Federer against Roddick. Those have been interesting elements to those matches. And I think it would take away variety, which is already diminished. But if there was any one serve, how much volley would we see? I think even less. How many net approaches end up off the back of a good first serve? Then a forehand, and then you come in. I think a lot of variety comes from the fact that you've got that first serve. I think you'd end up with way more just baseline rallies. And look, that's fine. I enjoy that. I probably enjoy that more, but I like the variety as well. And I think it would impact the men, but also it would impact the women, you know, Serena Williams is served. I think the greatest server of all time. If she only had one serve, would she have been as dominant? I think ash parties. Number one in the world at the moment. For lots of reasons, but I think her serve underpins a lot of her success as well. And leads to some of her variety the way she sets up her point with that. So I think it would look quite different tennis. And I think it would be worse if you just have one. I would like one tournament per year to feature only one serve. I feel that about a couple of aspects to the sport. You know, I wish there was a sort of a themed tournament. And I think that that could work. I think the players that I thought of that would benefit or certainly still be just as strong aside from the ones with very strong baseline games are the ones that have really reliable actions that can put loads of kick on the ball, who have just great second serves as it is. And I actually think bharati would prosper. I think Maria Zachary would. Players that can just really get the do more than just start the point with a reliable serve. I think I do think Djokovic would be even more dangerous. I think he would have had an even better career. If that was the case, I think somebody likes vero would have been nowhere near as potent, personally, because I think he wins only three points, but anything he could get more wobbly sort of thing. He couldn't do the going full out necessarily on a second serve. I don't think all the time, the way he's tended to do recently. But yeah, I'd happily have one tournament a year and try it out. I'm very on board for themed tournaments like that. Still want my one racket tournament as well. Yes. David law does the past. We've got a couple more questions. So we might have to go have to go a little, not quite quick fire. Medium paste fire, please. For remaining a couple of questions. The first comes from slash PG 22 on Instagram. Not sure what's going on there. What do you think of the electronic line judging? That we've had in recent tournaments, good bad, irritating slash takes out the faffing less drama, et cetera I mean, I'm all for taking out faffing. As we've established on this podcast, to be honest, I don't have massively strong feelings about it. I think it's fine. I don't know, I wouldn't sort of campaign for it to stay. I also am not going to march for the return of line judges as much as I feel for them in the sort of the erosion of that profession. You know, I don't think sort of stalling technological advances is the answer to that. I definitely definitely definitely am opposed to video review of a call that is not going to be changed. I find that ludicrous. But I'm aware that what they're trying to do with that is recaptured the fun of a hawk challenge. But it doesn't. It doesn't. And it doesn't. There's no fun to it whatsoever. No, none at all. It's ludicrous, get rid of it now. Get rid of it, but it's an acknowledgment that something is lost. We've lost the fun of the hawkeye challenge. Again, I don't feel that loss too keenly. I am okay with it. So I just find it hard to get riled up either way on it's a rare. It's a rare topic that I am not riled up about. Turin will be interesting in that way because they're going to have it back. They're going to have hawkeye challenges during the ATP finals..

I think hogue aroon did it. And fabio fini did it both quite recently and they both apologized. Fanini came out wearing rainbow colors in canada. But as far as i'm aware no one no one spoke about it publicly there was no sort of. Atp player coming out and saying this is not okay and you know i was just. I was just imagining a a possible gay player in the locker room seeing that and seeing this at just complete enough to silence that it was treated with than how are they gonna feel I'd i'd have thought alone and isolated and just yeah unsafe really to be themselves so i think it can help so much when people around you speak up and you know how they feel about the subject so that when you do feel ready to come out you know they will be an ally for you. So yeah i just think there's there's probably a next step now. The players need to be taking I think pride diet. Us open helps you know i. It's what prompted me to ask the question And felix seem mentioned to survey that that the atp had had done internally so i spoke to the atp today.

Cold Laser Therapy: A Health Revelation With Dr. Kirk Gair
"You define cold laser therapy or so. We look at at at cold laser therapy. That means it's non-thermal because there are some lays out there that are thermal. There's some high powered ones that work by heating up the tissue low level lasers. They've been used since the nineteen sixties. And they're really pioneered in the former soviet union where there was so much research by nineteen seventy four that the russians were using them in their state-sponsored Medical care so they're using them for every branch of medicine basically even if it was. Obgyn if it was a oncology neurology orthopedics because they were able to see that it can help people to heal much faster. By the way the laser actually stimulate. Some changes will be called photo biochemical changes so the easiest way to think about lasers. Let's start with plants. Let's look at photosynthesis so you've gotta plants leaf and when sunlight hits the plant's leaf. They will absorb the photons of energy. Sounds like star trek but it absorbs photons and then the plant will convert that into food through photosynthesis so that's one simple way that living organisms can use light in humans when sunlight hits us. We can't make food but we can absorb that energy and make vitamin d that goes throughout the body in order to cause you to me stronger bones or affect the immune system and inflammation or the sunlight can cause you make me Melon for a suntan melatonin for your sleep wake cycles and for some people. They can't even get seasonal affective disorder. Where if they don't get enough light they can get depressed so we know that our bodies are already light reactive now. What happens when we get laser on the skin. You're not gonna make food or vitamin d or a melanin. But you're gonna make some other molecules that have a really powerful impact. One of the primary ones is you're going to make atp which is made in the mitochondria and so you have listeners. Who have autoimmune conditions fibromyalgia. Very common especially in females Where they have issues with their mighty country. The laser supports that by helping it to make extra energy extra.

That's capable of serving and volleying and getting hits the return thirty feet behind the net. But he moved so wellness so much length that he can track down and use that. I return almost as the first of a two shot passing shot combination gaza freak guys in absolute freaking. You're right now he's cycle. It's jovic minus one. Thirty five medvedev minus four plus four hundred in terms of favorites at the twenty twenty one. Us open yeah justifiably heave. I listed all the stats in my recap. How last time not going to list them all again. But he's been dominant and again. Why is this so impressive. Two weeks in a row and it's going to be more spaced out at the us open. It's going to be three to five sets as well but for the neo medvedev to follow up a run at At the toronto massar yet toronto masters. Sorry i'm just the cities. Toronto montreal was definitely toronto this year to follow that up with two wins over guys like dimitrov and then like a guy in his first match mackey mcdonald. That's where you have to do with the. Us open is you just have to recover. And he did. And he has now he's through to the quarterfinals where he's got a matchup with pablo carina bussan and that's a fascinating one. Because again we generate medvedev has to generate his own pace when he has to be the aggressor he needle slap happy. You can get a little sloppy as well kind of force his way to the net. Try and do things that while he can pull off. You probably shouldn't be attempting to do with that much frequency and so this is an interesting matchup for sure you look for. Korean boost wins over cope for foreign to and yesterday over who be her cat six and six and by the way a quarterfinal appearance at the. Us open is absolutely in the cards. And i don't think you know the miami open champion quarterfinals last week. Round of sixteen years six and six played a really good match against andy. murray Beat them six and three. I thought andy. Actually though as i was How do i say this without getting too optimistic animals out winning a grand slam anytime soon andy. Murray can win matches at a grand slam though and do it. Without having to do the highway robbery that felt like that bachelors feely match or the oscar to match winner match at the us open comfortably and just be dominant from start to finish abut. Who had the sort of pace and the sort of aggression and make him beyond his back foot That just over time warm..
"atp" Discussed on The Mini-Break
"He just turned twenty one years old and he's currently again ranked seventeen now. What's interesting to me are the advanced metrics overall elo rating. Faa still number thirty three. He's behind a guy like a brooks be like. Like you know palca like a carlos alvarez who the end sebastian quarter who the advanced metrics like a little bit better right. Now you look at his twenty twenty one eal rating. It feels like he's had better results than those guys right. He's done at all you know he's made a quarter-final of a slam he's now into the quarterfinal of a masters event. For the first time this season he's done it once before i believe in his career in miami was that twenty twenty. No because there was no must've been miami twenty nineteen yet. He's thirty two right now. In overall in twenty twenty one specific you again trailing guys Like a lorenzo sunny go like even arthur render nash. I think because the reason. I bring that up elo rating measures who were beaten and you know the score that you beat them by not when and where like the atp rankings. You look at felix run over these last fifty two weeks. He's thirty eight and twenty seven overall here in twenty twenty one. He's twenty eight and seventeen. You break it down by who. He's played against top fifty players sloven and eleven against top twenty players. It's interesting to note though he seven and three against top ten players. He's four and three. That's interesting that's an interesting data. Point what i think that speaks of course. He's gotten a big win over a top ten opponent here in bertini. He's also gotten a win again. That that wimbledon hollow run certainly did dividends for him in those stats. But i think that speaks to the fact that the inconsistency of feel that his best against the best can absolutely beat them but his worst against top fifty players can absolutely be. He can be beaten. And that's why that number so interesting to me. Eleven eleven against the top fifty but seven and three against the top twenty. You look for felix again and things like hold percentage break percent. He's number twenty one right now. On tour in hold percentage this season. He's holding eighty one point eight percent of the time you look for him in terms of his break percent. She's about thirty second right now on that list. He's breaking serve approximately twenty two percent of the time. It's fine again. That number needs to get a little bit. Higher speaks to the inconsistency it speaks to the one speed but that one speed folks. It's looking very very good. He is into a masters quarter-final here and again we book for him. How many masters quarterfinals has he made. Let me just be clear here Because i don't wanna be incorrect. You looked for him overall. I do believe yep. This is his second master's quarter-final the other was twenty. Nine thousand nine. Miami master so i still got it in regards to felix osceola. Ali seem again. Great week for him..
"atp" Discussed on The Mini-Break
"All right all of that seddon. You can tell him. Still getting my mini monologue legs under me. But let's get into the nitty gritty of this twenty twenty one western southern opening and again on this episode were focusing on the men's singles results. Let's start not with the top seed. The next gen guys. I was referring to in medvedev seats. You poss- in zero bullet start with a big week for felix all the assume and i know sometimes i feel like i'm just an advocate for felix because i see it i see the power tennessee plays with when it looks good. It doesn't just look you know top twenty. It looks dominant his serve his forehand our top ten weapons when they're landing in the court decisiveness with which he hits through the court. It doesn't matter the opponent. It doesn't matter the court speed. He has the league weapons. When they're landing and the problem for felix's sometimes he is a bid one dimensional the serve beforehand where he wants to rip through the backhand as well. He's one of those guys. In my opinion who can hit through someone by hitting a cross court back in that list is like jovovich zero. Have i mean doesn't hit through you cross court but he can't step up in the baseline rip it for a winner again. It's a very very elite group of players who can confidently step up and hit through court cross court with their backing and faa's getting better at it. Oh yanic center did not include yanic center on that list. I apologize bionic look for felix. I mean his servants forehand were landing against matteo bertini in a six four six three win a to advanced to the quarterfinals. Of this event you look for felix the numbers from the matchy one eighty nine percent of his first-serve points. He was broken once in the match. Now he but he only faced one break point throughout the match and know again. He did he only he only one forty two percent of his second serve. That's a testament to bear tea's ability to step up and hit a first forehand with it. You know gets around that ball so well sneaky quick for a guy his size but you look for felix in the match to the exact same thing and just was. The steadier of the two players had eleven break point. Chances only converted three of them but only needed the three six four six three victory for him. Here get to win over martin. Future vich seven six six three in his first round match and that was the match that he didn't play his best only made fifty two percent of his first serves faced ten. Break points in the match. But it's gotten better and better as the tournament progresses in his second round win over hatching of in three sets meet sixty one percent of his first serves one ninety percent of those first-serve points sixty eight percent of his second serve points was a dominant day on sir for him and then against bertini again up to sixty four percent of his first-serve go in he still winning eighty eight percent of those first-serve points. He's got another fascinating match up in the quarterfinals against the final deposit listeners of this podcast will know. That's a rivalry that dates back to their junior days in obviously for felix he's had success against cpap particularly when they were younger in the junior seats passes had his number a bit of late. But it's because felix has the sort of pace the big serve in the heaviness of.

What we are going to be doing today on this show is offering you two episodes to make up for the lack of podcast over the past few days. Of course our crack team was live at the twenty twenty one lotto elite pro tennis challenge such a fantastic opportunity to get to watch and speak with players like ernest. Bisque chris eubanks roy smith from cooma romanoff and and so many more. If you've missed any of that content you'd be able to catch it all on our crack interviews channel over the next couple of days here. Those podcasts as super producer. Daniel westoff releases them out to you but of course again. We are well aware so much action happening across levels in the tennis world. I got the chance yesterday. To record with both colette. Lewis annely system to recap the. Usda girls and boys sixteen and eighteen national championships. Those conversations will come out as great shout. Podcasts over the next few days but perhaps hovering above everything else the twenty twenty one western and southern open we have reached the quarterfinal stage of the event on the men side relatively steady in an otherwise somewhat chaotic year. Six of our top eight seeds still alive and we start to see that next class of you know tier one players the next dominant forces on the atp tour continued to establish themselves as such. Of course the highlighted names the next atp guys that have been at the forefront of that generation for awhile now to kneel medvedev alexandra stefanos cc pasta have all advanced to the quarterfinal round joined by players such as casper route. Who has unequivocally been one of the breakthrough. Stars of this season. Also joined by faa who. Of course i have always considered the leader of the nexgen. Atp two point oh group. He's still around. Twenty one years old could still play in that event this year if he wanted and he's already made eight. Atp finals we saw him his big breakthrough run. It felt like at a slam at wimbledon makes his first quarter-final. They're certainly as we look for him. Here makes another quarterfinal at this masters. All this bodes well for faa moving forward the other players joining them. Public arena boost. Benoi perr andrei rubel. I wanna talk about how all those guys have reached this stage when a preview friday's quarterfinal matches as well. That's going to be the focus of this episode on a separate mini break. Podcast also to be released today. I discussed the w. t. a. side of this event. If you want to hear all those thoughts again. I suppose. Just scroll up or down in your minibreak feet. I'm not sure which order while stops going to release them in but of course again want to cover all of that action as the. Us open less than two weeks away. And it's our final grand slam of the we learned rafael nidal not going to be participating in that event. He's done for the remainder of this twenty twenty one season nursing. that foot. Injury wants to come back healthy in twenty twenty two. Obviously that opens up the field and it continues to feel like it's novak djokovic. His to lose. It does look like it's going to be another nexgen. Atp guy was ct pastas medvedev at the australian open. It was seats you pass at the french. It was bertini at wimbledon's probably gonna be another guy like that taking a shot at jovic in the us open final..
"atp" Discussed on The A&P Professor
"I mean that that is a waste of time in probably. A lot of students wouldn't wanna do that but some would so. I wanted to make sure they were really focusing on those attempts so i only allowed three attempts. Now i have this other course that i'm still teaching now in that is pre amp and pre amp is a really weird course. It's a completely online course. It's a self paced course. It's only one credit and it isn't even credit toward graduation. It's developmental level credits. The same kind of credit a student would get for taking a developmental math or developmental. English course accounts for something. But it doesn't count towards graduation degree. Let's So it's a short course. It's basically developmental course in was developed to do extra retrieval practice so students who no matter how they did in the previous biology courses trailing all the way back to middle school or whenever they start teaching biology. I wanted them to have some practice. Doing retrievable practice to relearn those things that they forgot. Because that's part of learning. I wanted them to be fully prepped. For the regular impede course. So i Ten modules that focus on the some of the main ideas that we want all our impeach students coming in with things about cell biology in basic chemistry principles and basic measurement principles and reading graphs and stuff like that Maybe a basic you know rough idea of how the body is put together in terms of organs and systems and so on some basic terminology some some metabolism. You know such as you know how do we. atp's whereas atp comfort where's the energy atp come.
What is Poor Metabolic Health With Dr. Casey Means
"What is metabolic health. And what is poor metabolic health because recently studied was published that showed that eighty eight percent of americans are in poor metabolic health. So how is it defined. What is that. Why should we care right. Yeah that study was fascinating. Unc two years ago. Eighty eight percent of american adults have at least one biomarker of metabolic dysfunction. Five percent of us were wait which means a lot of the skinny. People also rain metabolic health. -actly exactly and really my belief is that by optimizing our metabolic health and really stabilize stabilizing our blood sugar levels and keeping them stable and healthy throughout our lifetime. It is really the quickest way and the lowest hanging fruit way to achieve really almost any health goal. That you have whether it's to look good. Feel good have longevity to avoid chronic disease tab athletic performance have your brain functioning properly. It's it's really the the trunk of the tree of so many of these Pain points we're dealing with today. So so what is metabolism. Fundamentally metabolism is the way that we produce energy in the body so we have thirty trillion cells in the body and only for income back olympic. And i think it's really important to find this poor metabolic. It's it's it's there's really three biomarkers that are looked at right. It was blood sugar blood pressure and cholesterol right exactly. So eighty percent of americans have a problem one or more those and the cause of all of those poor metabolic. Health markers is blood. Sugar does regulation and insulin resistance. And so what happens is you know we. We have these thirty trillion cells and every single one trillions needs energy to function and we need to convert food to energy and energy form that we can use in ourselves namely atp for our cells to function and when that process isn't going properly the metabolism when that conversion is not working properly we don't produce energy properly and cells. And what happens. We you have energy you get solar function.

Enterprise conversational automation with Derek Roberti
"The Enterprise content management space long ago when when sykora's first getting started in the us. Everyone knew they needed a website. We've gotten past that hurdle and everyone has spent years with web developers working in dreamweaver to try to build websites dating myself and everyone knew that they needed a platform to kind of Put some of the day-to-day content management activities in the hands of non coders And it was a really. It was like cultural change. I think within the web development world in terms of seeing these new roles emerge which were web content managers and digital marketers who really needed to get their hands on a platform so that they can do this. Work themselves in the conversational automation space. It's it's similar but different. The the different part is is while you know when when we were starting site core everyone knew knew the website today and something we can talk about as well as not. Everyone knows that they need to automate conversations. Not everyone knows kind of what's possible. And how much time and effort they can save or how difficult projects are so. There's there's still a lot of Lack of clarity and lack of urgency around adopting the technology in general but interestingly similar to kind of where we were recite court. We are at a point where people who have been working in this technology for a little bit are realizing that developers can become a bottleneck in the process of building out richard conversational experiences for customers and and i thought picking on developing asia but there's just limited limited resources with those skill sets that we need to enable a nontechnical less technical user to get their hands dirty with ecommerce platform. Do as much as they can. They're so that way when developers are actually touching the platform. It's to build out. Customer degration 's or to to do things in the system that exceed the exceed the skill set of the nontechnical user but in terms of just updating the logic of a conversation or updating the content of conversation being able to handle new intense those should really be in the hands of a of a business. User is probably you know develop a wise to show you kind of experiences. Wealth through various pieces of work that we've done beyond development develop. There's also in the same way we talk about skill gaps in terms of compensation design practice designing compensation development. Conversations is also two different things as well isn't it helps develop his inauguration. Don't necessarily have the understanding right now. around the tools techniques in a kind of conversational technical development. Would you say justin. Yeah no i think. That's i think that's really true. And then and then also i think the best deal developers are are lazy and a lot of ways. I think that's a positive thing that's eight and so we're talking about derek. About democratizing is sort of a cliche but giving the tools to more people with a company me's at a developer is not a certain bottleneck and they they can work on more interesting things The to push the whole history of web development analogy further kinda interesting. I'd be curious about you guys. Experience is the comparable skill sets that we had in the as kind of the web kind matured was people to who had done print design. Who'd kind of atp done marketing materials and traditional media and try to figure out. How can we take what we know from print translate the web and as as we all know is not a good fit for most of the time they they knew. Some graphical design and marketing messaging. But it didn't always translate. Well interestingly the conversational designed space organizations don't see themselves of even having that vague analogy that we had from print to web from a design perspective. People feel like they're starting from scratch but but the equivalent of that print designer to the web world are actual human beings having conversations with customers. So it's kind of like your customer service. Reps are the ones who can bring in a lot of that knowledge and skills and it might not translate directly to an automated conversation in a word for word. But that's kind of where you're a subject matter. Expertise knowledge resources already exists
Australian Open 2021: Novak Djokovic and Daniil Medvedev Meet for the Title
"The crusade for the men's singles crown comes to an end tomorrow. And when the undisputed king of rod laver arena novak djokovic takes on russian number-one neil medvedev the world number one djokovic. Gunning for a history-making ninth championship in melbourne. While the russian authors seeking his twenty first consecutive win and first major title to preview the match. I'm joined by not edwards and commentator. Nick mcardle nick at the start of in fact two weeks before this we had you on the show podcast and you picked this matchup is that what led you to make that cole way back. Then let's say lucked out. Let's be honest that wasn't necessarily total. Total fluke made many wrong picks before but coming in you know we talk about the twenty one matches in a row for osaka. It's twenty in a row for daniil. Medvedev the non includes a win over novak djokovic close twenty twenty i think medvedev has really come into his own as someone expects himself not only to go deep. Atp events which we've seen the last couple of years but now to really do at at the grand slam so the drop laid out for him. I think he's played to each match to the level now. Can he bring an eight time. Grand slam australian open champ. Seventeen time major winner novak djokovic. Can he meet that level in a final thoughts really eighty s. What i love most is after medvedev bates itsy pass in that semi final is that he said stride away. All the pressure is on novak. He just load him up because he's plight fonsi before and never lost and it sorta. But i love how he just playfully. Put that out there and look. I think he'll come at. He'll show you'll be a little bit nervous. But i think he's just going to swing freely and that backhands i mean. Gosh they both have terrific backhands. But it's going to be like jock itch playing a twenty five year old vision of himself. It's going to be such an interesting match. I really count. Wait for the all similar. It can not just in court croff necessarily but as personalities both very eloquent and sort of personable somewhat chiming in front of the camera but they do have this white line fever as we know totally. I love those points that you've made and i think medvedeva's become more comfortable without. We sought the us open a couple years ago in the crowd. Really got against him and he used that as fuel which i think djokovic has have that in the past that in the past for sure for sure for jovic against rafa roger. He's felt that too. I really think that it is an opportunity for medvedev lake. Nona saying just swing for the fences and the scary thing is when he swings for the fences. Oftentimes the ball goes in. And i really think he's going to use that experience of beating novak in london last year at the atp finals. He'll really be geared up by that. Yeah i think so too. And i'm really looking forward to. I think the one area that novak can probably try to exploit daniels is that netplay. He's not very good. Let's let's be honest when it comes to netplay so if he can drawer him in a little bit and maybe draw that out. I think that puts pressure on daniel. Bit amid gets off to a flying start is going to be hard to stop.

I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes. It was just all like niggly stuff that was affecting our relationships and was affecting the way we functioned from day to day. And i have always been interested in the human body i prob- i might have become a doctor. But i'm i'm glad i didn't because it made me look for answers and other places so i was fascinated with the human body studied physiology anatomy and chemistry in the sciences and i was fascinated with the how the human body worked. So we're not. We started having these problems and we were being treated traditional medical way with anti anti-inflammatories and antihistamines for a head allergic dermatitis. On my hands and the kids with antibiotics just didn't make any sense because nobody actually got well. all it doesn't seem to do is suppress symptoms. And then they'd come back two weeks later. I saw the athol up. Gotta find answers. This was long. Before the era of google that really dates meet And just go and do a search on google. And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across. Imagine yourself in the garden of eden and you craving something sweet. What would you eat. And there was a stately silence and this woman blonde voluptuous woman sitting in the front rows in this deep voice. Adam evan rumor osc that christian. I'm thinking this woman. It was really funny at the time. But it's just interesting because i've often christian in los angeles of austin in the republic of hot bay of austin zimbabwe of austin the uk. Austin all over the

Interview With Jessica Garcia, SWA First Officer
"What's up walling. Hey bobby how are you. I'm great this is our third guest and we are excited to have her on the show today with us as a pass flight instructor from united flight systems current southwest airlines first officer and someone with a very interesting aviation story that we're gonna talk about today today. We have on the show jessica garcia. Thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me. And i know We're gonna talk a lot about today but you also have to be married to a pilot as well an my wonderful husband. Ricky who also instructed here structure. And i heard good news for ricky recently. Is that true. He got hired at commuter airlines Friday very excited and so he was an express jet in lives in houston listened to show. They probably have heard about all the things that happened. Express jet so it's great to hear that ricky's back in the in the in the cockpit. Doing great things for aviation excited. I'm i'm pumped for him. He's ready to get back in the airplane so we have a lot to talk about today but as the current owner of united flight systems. It's a it's a great time when a previous flight search comes back and shares with me stories and things from the past. You've obviously spent many an hour behind a prop as an airplane owners still today. You spend a lot of time on the probe had any idea. How many hours do will you gave here at this. Oh it's gotta be at least twelve hundred I remember one day sitting down with my logbook in between students. And i recognized that my total dual received in total dual given was equal spicer past that milestone here and then i think i want to say about twelve hundred dollars instructing here nice and that that was that in the day where you could just get the fifteen hundred right to the airline sort of. I was in the weird transition area where the atp was being required by the by the regional airlines to get hired. But it what you didn't have to do the atp p. course so i ended up being able to do my atp on my own without having to the course but you still have to have the fifteen hundred hours so kind of an awkward phase. I think i got my atp in june and the the law passed in august. For the so. I guess for our listeners. We've we've obviously prepped and talked a little bit. Tell us a little bit about your aviation career where he went to college. How you found this place and then did you go right to the airlines are or what will happen there. So i started flying recreationally in abilene texas. Where i'm from Just doing it for fun. I grew up flying with my dad in the right seat of various aircraft wanting bananas barons and the end of my freshman year of college. He said okay. You can go to summer school. You can get a job or you can get your pilot's license and so i opted to go get my pilot's license obviously and had an a wonderful instructor. Who is now one. She is my best friend. We are incredibly close. She flies for fedex and she she said you know. You're kind of good at this. Have you considered doing it as a career and up until that point i hadn't been exposed to the opportunities in careers in aviation so took me to my first women in aviation conference and it was like being around thousands of my taipei. Best friends And they all took me by the hand. I was nineteen years old. And said we're going to show you what it means to be a professional pilot and i decided right then and there that was going to be my career up until then i was studying marketing And liked it but didn't love it so went back to abilene finished my instrument rating then i transferred to louisiana tech university where i finished my commercial. Cfi of mea. I instructed for the school for a few months loved being attack. I'm very proud Louisiana tech bulldog and but it wasn't building flight time quite quick enough and so a friend of mine called me and said there's a flight school in houston. I think you'd be a great fit at work. Consider interviewing so. I called united flight systems. Talk to the previous owner. Bob watts and his daughter laura and they brought us in for an interview me and my husband. I secretly brought my husband along with me to interview as well. And we they us right then and there and so within a month. I moved houston and begin. Instructing here instructed for. I guess it would have been about two and a half years and then had one of my workers official instructor. Here come into my office and say would you like to fly corporate. And i'd always been really interested in corporate aviation i. I grew up around general aviation being there in abilene. We had a little bit of a regional airline flying but not a lot So i had more exposure to corporate. And i said sure didn't know what the airplane was had. Never heard of. It was a cessna. Conquest twin engine turboprop and met with the the woman who was flying that airplane and we went and just had dinner and and chit chatted and she said. I think you'd be a great fit. Would you come fly with me. So that was my introduction to part one thirty five Flew for them for a couple of years loved it. That was a flu for a family. There's still a dear dear and special in my life The woman i flew with is still very dear to me. We get together as often as we can into pilots
Interview With Chris Kermode
"Let's here in the meantime from the interview. That i did today with chris commode who was formerly a colleague of mine at queens. He was the tournament director for a long time. queens and then moved onto the atp. The end i think of twenty thirteen spent six years in the job and first thing i asked him was really how he looks back on that time in his life. Many people have asked me that question and in fact they phrase it differently. They would you do it again. And which which is slightly different i. It was a huge honor to lead the organization and it was an incredible six years and yet thoroughly let south thoroughly enjoyed that there were some very heavy moment Very stressful moments. But you know to have to have the chance to Lead a global sport was fantastic and had a year to sort of contemplative. And when you earn your blight issue sometimes get so immersed that you fail to recognize the achievements to the thing but you know i know back in some of the numbers that quite an impressive aren't very proud member. You're just looking at things like the gross revenues of the tool. Were twenty thirteen. We're about ninety. Seven million and two thousand eighteen goto grew to over one hundred and fifty million of the prize. Money again went from eighty five million twenty thirty two hundred thirty five million so fifty eight percent growth the number of players. Earning over a million dollars in prizemoney grew over ninety percents which is great britain about our ranked players. Earning money one of the personal achievements. was that the. The big growth was between really between players between fifty and one hundred sixty nine percent growth in hundred fifty to two hundred sixty five percent growth. So that redistribution of monies downs the lower ranked lies was was great and the same with ranking points. As well and as the players the pension funds just went through through the roof which is key for these guys when they stop stop playing like a sixty percent growth in the pension fund so looking at the new events. She look at the finals. Look at the next gen and the car you know there was a a hell of a lot done and think we moved the game forward and when listening to that out. Imagine a fair. Few allison's are thinking well. If that's the case why are you not in the job right now. Why what can you tell me about your departure. And what led to it. Well i think it's a very political job. I've seen an ascetic in the job. And i will continue to say it now. I'm very very supportive of the atp as an institution. I actually believe works. There are many people the can make very easy comments from the site saying it's just impossible to have a player organization anna tournament organization together. My line to that would be that. It's one of the few sports where players and tournaments have a say in their spore. You know on a daily basis. Unlike say some of the american sports where you have collected bargaining agreements and they have a big fight over over prize money every o or income over every five years as a huge fight and they don't really speak the reason i think the hp structure works is people do have a voice on on a daily basis. And you look back know over all the votes that we have and you know it was almost ninety. Eight percent of the decisions were made in consensus. Which is which is great oversee. I sat in the middle of players and tournaments at certain times of the six year. Tenure people say he's a tournament guy. He's a player guy. You speak to the tournaments. They'll say he's a player guys because the players they say he torn guy that's just the nature of the jaw.

"Thank you so much for those lovely words. How about this every time we told with. Somebody's favorite tennis. Podcast catherine who to thaw is almost as if we've just encouraged this and frankly that's exactly someone from newfoundland n-i-l-l-a-s only finland is i'm going to try and retrain myself to announce it that's where the good dogs come from. Is it for what good about them. They are big and cuddly and fluffy and Do you remember caesar. May he rest in. Peace martino trace lovely doke He was found. Oh well yes. Now that was a splendid dog portray if the dog world say nancy. Congratulations for being from there. yes so nancy back kicked out of thank you so much into all the others that have introduced show this week. We really appreciate it and yeah. That's why we able to do this every single day of the finals. And we've got a few more to go. Today was a funny all day. We kind of previewed. It didn't we last night as much as the afternoon. Look like a much meaning to it. There was just not meaning. Those they were dead rubbers after all posted doubles and the singles and then the evening section. We always knew is going to be a knife edge type scenario you win. You guys drew you lose. You got home like a normal tournament. Let's start there showy because rough on the dow has beaten stefan pass in three sets. It wasn't like last year's when i didn't feel i thought it was. I mean i thought the dow played really. Well i've role. But i mean obviously there's no crime but last year they played a three center in and it was just epic. Wasn't it every every point felt like a a saga this. This didn't feel that that to me what to you. Know i felt like steph sits pass could have been prepared to die out there tonight and it still wouldn't have been enough He he cannot get close to the dull serve. I know there's the anomaly of the fact that he is beaten in one song clay Madrid in one thousand nine hundred. But let's just take that out of the equation and it's possible it's possible that sits has a bit of an adult problem And one that he's not getting any closer to solving think it's more than possible. I think he has a nidal problem. And i think he's a pretty big one. It's okay to have nato problem. Nidal is really really good. You know most of the world has had an adult problem for fifteen years. But he's not getting closer. It would sing and sits up past. Thinks he's got into dow problem doesn't am and he he's i it is he having seen his press conference. We'll talk about that in a minute. I think he will be going an obsessing for the next six weeks. Ah bat how to solve his dow problem matt's you you watched it what what jumped out at you from their match or yeah if i if you've got an adult problem. You've got a bit of a men's tennis problem haven't really because nadal is always going to be. There is a constant if you can't overcome the dull you're going to struggle to win the biggest tournaments i would. I would suggest certainly at the moment for the next year or two wall dolls exactly around anyway So yes short turn. That is going to be interesting to see whether sit to pass can overcome it. I think actually on one of those ones on clay. I think he's got so much more time to return the serve and he can step back and take some swings. Maybe that actually does help him against the door. But i completely agree with what you said. Catherine he just didn't didn't get near serve really for the whole match other than a fifteen minute spell which was weird and bizarre and suddenly he broke nidal twice twice in a row three times in a row. Maybe it was a very strange portion of the match. But i guess my main takeaway was kind of comparing to team the dull because that was the match we saw most recently and it felt like team has sustained threat against nadal whereas sits pass to me felt like he was relying on little moments and flashes of when his game was on and hoping that that would be enough to get him through. I didn't i didn't see a complete game plan really from him. And i think feeds into this wider thing of him being a bit confused about how to play a dollar and therefore it just always felt to me like the dole would win that match and in the end he won that third-set pretty pretty comfortably after after a shaky start

"Were two hundred and fifty six tennis players in two major events, and there was one positive test. The fans to me are still a little jarring but anyway Let's Let's wrap I. Don't. There's not I mean you know I'm sorta looking for news stories. The ATP looks like for the for the first quarter of the event they're gonNA reduce cries, money. At. Two fifty, five, hundred level advances as you would think given the reduction of fans Andy. Murray had A. Physical. Setback the W. T. looks to be adding. Events They're really scrambling there. Many more ATP EVENTS WT events. Part of that is because this is the China swing for the W., T., a. and obviously The China events were shut down months ago but playing opportunities are sparse and scarce players. looks like players are going to have to depart for Austrailia in the middle of December. So the the off season already small to begin with flick window got even the. Smaller and It's a it's a strange time in normal years. We would say that the second half of October is a strange time. But all the more. So in in two thousand, twenty anything it feels he add Jamie. Now that that's it I mean, yeah I think that the biggest thing I'm looking not looking forward to but just anticipating is the decision making surrounding the Australian Open given that as you said, it's it's right around the corner given that quarantine time and You know be another another major to just see how things are handled and who plays, and of course, as you mentioned, there are some injuries Roger Federer? was expected to be back in two, thousand, twenty one but you just you just don't know given the the situations that it would require for their families and travel, and frankly I I also think that it might affect some players just training generally you know because there they do try and take time off. But I think that's a really hard thing to balance in this time where you might have taken. Time off during the shutdown or maybe you just Didn't didn't train hard or I mean that whole idea of tapering or preparing for a big event I think has been completely thrown out the window for so many players and for me that training arc and how you prepare for a tournament and just prepare for a season which is you know now with tennis..

"I, Agree John I I don't know where the movement stands since the tour shifted over to Europe. But you know the group that I saw assembled on on the grandstand court at the US. Open last month that I just referenced it lacked the critical mass that one would have hoped to have had I think and and I I. Don't think that group. Would have. Very much credibility and probably no leverage with you know ten is's other entities. So. I also found it a bit insulting. for anybody to equate gathering with the the nineteen eighty, eight parking lot press conference. I mean. Let's good. Why don't you point out the differences? I think that's important. Well. The first ten years of my career I worked for the ATP when it was a players association. and. I will tell you that we as players having three votes on a on a nine member governing body We didn't win many votes. We didn't. We didn't make too many gains or advances as you can imagine. And so You know the. We. Finally, we not only the players but even the tournaments we. Convinced, to go along with us. Finally decided look there's a better way to do this and. We each have a stake in. The other partner successful. So, why don't we break away and form our own tour and the ATP can go from being just a a noisy players association to having a a real presence within the sport and so that's really what the nine thousand nine, hundred, eighty, parking lot press conferences is all about it was a a landmark event which initiated real change and it gave you know the players an opportunity to take. Responsibility for equal ownership of the tour. And and so to equate. What happened. With. The P.. T. T. P.. A.. Assembly at the US Open with that. especially for me who fought so hard for the creation of the each I founded. Founded as I said a bit insulting. What do you think? It's obviously someone more nuance than this, but basically, it's a partnership between..
