"Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of acupunctures. My life now. Today's episode is about what may seem to be simple. When not as simple as you think is what causes a headache. And then you'll better understand will better understand as to why i'm constantly saying see your acupunctures on a regular basis because many individuals get headaches and this includes migraine headaches and it will run out and take some something over the counter for it in like we went away. No it didn't go away just a nerve endings or not. It actually didn't go away. It allows you the ability to. You're going to naturally heal on your own. Get better feel better. And unfortunately some cases many individuals take over the counter medication. Don't get better when it when it wears off. Let's say few hours later. They need more and more and more because they're not understanding and this is why i say acupuncture is super important is because it's about finding out the cause of your headache a headache just isn't a headache because it's a headache headache. Is your body telling you something is wrong and acupunctures understands that you know there. There are quite a few causes of disease. In this case headed an acupuncturist looks to focus. Or treat the cause and now all tau a little bit. And i usually don't. I've had patients that have dealt with migraines forty years of their life if come in to get acupuncture treatment and just after a few sessions some. There's been three sessions summit took as much as twelve it ranges because everyone's constitutions different but on average as a coming for wellness visits thanking. They haven't had a migraine headache. In some cases in excessive three years is reasonable. I tell you over see local acupunctures contact acupunctures my life but what can cause headaches. Constant one can be constitutional deficiency. What was the state of health of your parent. Did general state of how what was his state of health at the time of concession conception and what were the health conditions of your mother during pregnancy cds. Three of few factors that play into a person's constitution if they're born with a a weak constitution. they're prone to headaches. Because let's say they have wheat stomachs and explains it can extract the proper nutrition from food to produce team blood to go today because the brain requires him though constantly noticed that they have headaches and in acupunctures can determine if it's as a result of a weak constitution so abdominal acupuncture comes in great here. Because one you got is your second brain. That's number one. And if you strengthen his spleen and stomach to extract the appropriate amount of essence from the foods eaten that you've ingest boom and i'm not saying that as a definite seen acupunctures other causes can be emotional. Stress and emotional stress can come in a variety ways. One is anger and acupuncturist understands that angers tied to deliver and anger over a long period of time causes young to rise to the head and the head is the area with all the young channels meat. Which is fine but too much of anything like too much yang. Going to the head causes headaches another's worry because where tends to not cheap and the brain requires chicken blood to function as well as essence so chee becomes nodded the issue obstruction and the flow of cheap. You have it you have headed another sadness and grief sadness and grief depletes chee over a period of time so if you sadness you saturday you grieving for an extended period of time. She becomes depleted and not enough chico into that and they have headaches. Another is fear now. Fear affects the kidneys. Okay it causes it depletes the kidneys and causes headache as a result. Because your kidneys in your lower jiao along with your liver and kidneys become deficient so does deliver and it can ensure the smooth flow of cheap properly and a can't constrain young too much yang to the head. You have another emotion. Shock given been shocked shocked suspense. Chee there's no movement stops again. The smooth flow cheap blood in essence. An ad is necessary. Any lack thereof you you. You going to experience a headache. Another's pensive. nece pensive. Nece is tied to the spleen now pensive. Nece deals with over thinking too much thinking or you're at work. You're at constant meetings project to all your student if to study for exams you pull an all night. She ever hear a student. Say oh my god. I gotta hage from so much study. You may or an individual or yourself. Get off work and say my gosh. Today was crazy. I have such a headache too much thinking too much mental activity. Another is guilt guilt is a dark emotion. I'll give you an extreme like analogy. You were mad for split-second someone you cared about or someone undeserving view. Having i dunno killed. I'll be an extreme just to get you to understand and then the next day you think about guilt is bothering guilt. As doc emotion tends to stagnate cheat k it tends to stagnate cheat it affects the lungs the heart the liver the kidneys and she will definitely stagnate knows areas.

Seventeen years later and so and so it just started growing from there. Nobody nobody would tell us that. The idea bad mean you know the idea's great go for it you may. Maybe we're not ready for now. We just kept getting enough customers enough partners enough people and we just kept raising money and and the in today. It's now that company that we're talking about this and one of the ways you mentioned partnerships a lot one of the ways that you get customers is you partner with the software vendors that they're already using to send out invoices like microsoft great plains. People are using it to send out invoices instead of them personally calculating the the sales tax. You're plugging automatically does it. You didn't have a partnership with microsoft you just built integration was the first partnership was sage. Was it epa. Core who was aged up records were the first people that said okay. We're going to build you win as our tax module And so when somebody says to have a sales tax problem they say okay. We're going to sell you the applera Avalanche module. They call it. You know epicure tax modular sage tax module but that's that's that's how it was and and today we have a thousand partnerships that are like that.

"You know we want to research this a little bit more and so we would go out to businesses and we would say. Hey we want to talk about sales tax and we'll be talking to the owner and they're like oh not really a problem not not relate mean it's we got it and then we could we ask your controller and so the controller would come in and the in the in the in the controller would go. Oh my god. This is the hardest thing on earth and so there was this disconnect between you know the business owner and the people actually having to do the work. And we're like okay. I mean we're onto it and we just heard this story time and time again example of business that what did they do. The that was dead had a controller. That was into this. So i mean look one of the first companies that we did They were a a an online purveyor and they had they set out gift baskets okay and so they gift baskets in its famous. And it's it's huge. You know they they sell it all over the place and you go online and you buy. Hey i want this but in a gift basket. Everything is taxed differently cheeses differently. Are this tax different things right. So it was a nightmare. Right i mean everything. Every lack Every amount in that in that Basket had to be you know had to be tax differently and and we were able to solve that problem for them. Got it all right. I see that all right so now you have the thing about another one because people don't really talk about this what you're going to buy a you know back in the day if you have physical presence you you You have tax. Write a sports team. A sports team has fifty s fifty different players and they all live in different states so based on that of course because physical presence your your your employees are living in different places and so when you go online to buy a hat or jersey or a shirt because they have next us in all fifty states they have to know all the different different rules in in the united states. There's twelve over. Twelve thousand taxing jurisdictions in the united states. Twelve thousand. I think about that a that selling all over the united states has to no twelve thousand different taxing their rates okay. I'm now seeing why. There's so much excitement for it. I wonder who the first customer is. But before i get into that and then figure out what the first version looked like. Let me just say my first sponsor my only sponsor for this episode is host gator. Scott if it was like in these hostgator adds to ask if you were starting today. Let's say maybe even as a teenager. What idea would you have that. If i gave you a hostgator website you would start launching on on that side. You have an idea that's rattling around your head or direction you'd in. Wow i mean there there's I mean there there are so many. There's so many ideas that that you can come up with. And and and i don't have one that i would say if i were going to do it. You know right now. I'm invested in some really unique unbelievable areas. I think got michael. How one is one is. How do you preserve fruit longer. I guess you know so you can get strawberries ninety days later in the cycle and and and and what did they do to preserve longer. There's there's ways of you. Can you know using special packing methods. And and and i've seen plant based packaging. Seems like or like a a film around the fruit. that's plant base. Is that the direction they're going in. No i mean. That's what i think. This is more containerized right. So when they're shipping. You know out of south america out of cia or to china or all the different places that the that the way that they ship them. You know. we'll actually preserve so the fruit longer. So i mean there's just fantastic ideas. But what i like about the these kinds of ideas if you're going to have an idea. Heaven idea that impacts the world right. I mean that that really. If you're gonna go to all the trouble of doing a start up. Do something mean have an idea that really you can really make a huge difference. That's what i tell everybody because the amount of work that you have to do for a big idea and a small idea just about the same all right. Listen up everyone. Whether you're whether you've got your idea now or you're about to be hit with it hostgator got you covered. They'll host your website right. They'll do it inexpensively and dependably. They've been doing it for me for years. And i highly recommend them. I saved a lot of money by switching over to hostgator and the site works. Great all you have to do if you want.

"It's this company's doing unbelievable. Is it all real. You know microsoft comes out and says they're gonna wind security in the stock drops. You know you know a seventy five percent and unlike. Oh jesus i think i just need the sell a bunch to make sure my kids. Can you know so you know. I got out. You know i got i. I took the conservative route. And then the stock rallied and it was a hit one of the darlings of all of all you know software and gil became the first billionaire. He's on the forbes list and because he believed bright i mean he fundamentally believed in it and was willing to go to the good and the bad times and i did i. I chickened out early on and Me mean it was a really valuable lesson in thankfully. I got a second bite at the apple with apple with avarice show. You're a lot smarter and wiser. You know having gone gone gone through the whole program but but it was. It was an interesting all right appalachia. The idea came to from where. So i'm i'm a checkpoint and i'm thinking that it's about time for me to move on to do something nelson and figure out what we're going to do again although i just loved it and but it was just it was just time to go on and my partner You know Jared the guy. We fired the guy we did all the stuff with mean he was like he was like billy jr you and all the jokes that you tell me billie was like knocking on my door. Hey scott come out and play out and play. because he'd left checkpoints he'd left. The company was on his own. He wanted to do something else and he was always constantly saying. Let's go do something. Come on let's go to the guy who came up with the internet idea backward. No one else believed in the internet is gonna keep coming up with new ideas all right so he just come to you. What's give me an example of one of his past ideas that you didn't pursue together you know i mean i list. That would be hard to that. Would be hard to nothing blue. Okay i mean we've got. I mean you know. He's got just tons of ideas about kind of all sorts of mean just all sorts of things really and and he's always saying. Hey we should go do this or we should do that and you know early on you know because i have always said because i'd always get asked the question like what's the next big thing you know and i mean i don't think you'd think about what the next big thing is because i got solve the problems got in front of me but so i want to turn your. What's the next big thing. And this was back in the day. And he's like you know you know everybody's talking about you know You know the automated driving automation and all those things. But he's like you know. I think crypto currency. How many oh. This is a long time bitcoin. Well just just just as no right said i just think that this is gonna be a revolution and you know. We should invest in early on. Because it's going to be like a railroad company. You know you always hear those people that had the the stock certificates folks that show up you know in in some trunk and and like said that's what it is. We're just going to invest in it and so we created a business and early on you know so. That's the kind of thing that i didn't see what what's the cryptocurrency busy he created. Well we mean around. We just had a general general created anything he wanted to come up with business idea for it right. We created you know we created some some products and then we were helping a bunch of people because we were pretty. We had a partner those pretty intimate expert in the whole area. And so you know we would do projects from we get paid in crypto currency and You know it it was really it was just. It was a fun. It was fun. It was to do Actually now have like the equivalent of those old stock certificates somewhere. Where like you got to bitcoin. Usb drive or something some place somewhere we someplace somewhere. Jared has it all all jerry. This is jared vote. Vote vote. Jared vote okay. So he had the idea for this in my right. So so jared came to me and he said scott. I met this guy. We live on a place called bainbridge island outside seattle and he goes. I met this person and he came up to me and he said i got this idea. In its sales tax. Automation listened to rory. Roy rowlings was the guy and he. You know this is a lot like you can see a pattern here. This is a lot like the doctor coming in the life cycle and says i got this. I d i don't know what to do with it You guys you know. How would you help. Would you help me and said yeah. Sure we'll help you. And he said but you gotta talk to scott and you know. Jared went off the london and you know for the holidays. And i meet with him over the over thanksgiving and and Roy tells me thing. And i'm like oh my god. This is an unbelievable idea. Unbelievable we can take this and make huge idea. What was colonel of the idea that this i mean here. Let's at its basic level. Sales tax is the last thing to be automated in the magic moment of commerce k. Mean when you say by you know you know you do fraud. You do payment processing fraud. You do freight you do. All these things in huge businesses have been built around all of the magic moment of commerce. The only thing that had never been solved. What in this magic moment was the man getting paid. You know the government getting its due. And and so roy had this idea you could use what we now. Call the cloud what we now call sas to build out an engine that would calculate store the information the calculation and then do the reporting and remittance back to the states essentially. It is until think about this. Sales tax was was thought of five thousand years ago by the objections our company was. Our country was founded on a sales tax dispute and nobody had solved this problem because it was a technical problem. It was a technical problem not a sales tax problem because it had to be in the moment because sales taxes transactional unlike a erol or something like that that can happen in batch. Sales tax has to happen. Know when you're on the phone when you're on an e you know on a website and ecommerce site whether you're checking out at you know on appeal s it has to be real time in people won't wait around for so it required broadband internet to come along and with broadband internet. We could calculate sales tax in real time behind the scenes. And and and hand you the the correct amount or hand the Accounting packages the correct amount and people would pay move on because of whom because this is two thousand and four where the idea originated. I think right amazon was not collecting sales tax. Nationwide back then no. We just had to say all businesses whether whether whether might whether amazon collects it or not mean. You're responsible for whether jail if you don't collect sales tax but if amazon didn't see the need to do it shop stores didn't exist but all those local merchants. They certainly didn't see the need. Who did you see and say they are going to need us. It was bigger customers. Who.

"It's proprietary messaging solution. And we're using novell and he keeps looking at this thing called microsoft and is playing with the internet. We just can't have him doing that. Stuff i mean. He's got a focus on what we need him to do. And so they fired him because you know he was way out in front of everything and but look. We didn't really exactly fire him. we said. Hey why don't you start your own company. Obviously you've got some ideas about this. We gave them a closet. I mean i mean a closet a real closet and that was his office and and and you know he could use our public space and he said you know. I think microsoft n. t. and i think the internet has legs i'm gonna create the first commercial version of a dns and dhcp server for microsoft because microsoft did not work on the internet until jared and his immune is idea came along and bigoted commercially viable. And so he had this idea to put out the company this this thing and they. They said they're going to sell a hundred of these in in one year and they hudson they put it out. They got a little bit of press back in the day. They sold one hundred in their first day while hand and it became a ubiquitous solution. For you know if you're going to be on the internet unit unity. dsm dnc p server for microsoft and. It just went crazy but it was an idea that was short. Lived over time because obviously microsoft was going to build it into its operating system and it wasn't really it's so you we needed a second act and and anyways that's i mean that's how we got going but what was your involvement in that business so the the the father's came to and said hey main now that we fire jared. He's got this great idea has no idea how to run it. Scott would you leave you know the medical company and would you go. Jared and helped him run the company. I'm like hell. Yes i would. And and so. I became the president of the company. Jared was a ceo and we you know we. We grew the business with one other partner and then sold at the check. Point software out of israel the company. I their founder. He's i think israel's first billionaire this security come out. I work forget. Did i know he sat any wouldn't he. You moved a lot in his interview. He sat down and move so much. I was worried he was going to fall over. I asked him about it my whole life. I've been like this. Was he like when you saw him. Oh yes basically was the greatest. I mean really. I mean i just had so much fun. I mean. That was one of the greatest gigs of my entire. By what about it. Well i mean just so much one foul everything that i've been involved in right. We started life cycle. It really brand new. You know jared with with You know meta info and d. Brand new you know. Get going out there and gill and check point. I mean when we joined it in nineteen ninety seven. I mean it was just newly public in the in. The firewall hadn't really made it was important. But it wasn't the way it is today so security. Was this new brand new area. That was going to be big. And so i. I got i got to be on the ground level. You know working with gil gil schwedt jerry. Berman too great mentors of mine. About how you you know how you start up a company and how you grow it and how you take public. You know how you make a global and i think that that's the one thing that i learned more than anything else when you think about a company coming out of israel mean the day it opens its doors. It's global company because there is no business in israel ltd right. I i mean it's a small country. Yeah so you when we start a company here in the united states were saying well. Let's go tackle the united states and it's the biggest market and so we get pigeon hole into thinking the united states rest of world mean and. I think that that's a in today's world just a a failed sort of vision because everything is global today. So what are you gonna learn about going global from him. I remember one of the things he told me was. As soon as they started the company he was told to go to california. And not come back until you had a million dollars in sales that he had to go and prove himself there but you seem to have a bigger lesson about how to grow internationally. So they wanted to go. I mean so when when when you when we joined the company they would say. Let's go have a leadership meeting. let's go. Let's go have a leadership meeting and we think let's leadership. Let's go to san francisco where let's go to austin or let's go to washington dc there. I was blown away because they said okay. This leadership meetings going to be in prague and the next one is in barcelona next one's in washington. Dc the next one's in san francisco the world they viewed the world as the world as opposed to. Okay mean. we're just going to. We're going to focus on one. One one part of the one part of the world they were meeting like setting offices all over the world to and all over the world. So you're saying the difference is between saying we're gonna make ourselves available to anyone who wants to come to us to our website by versus. We're going to establish people all over the world got. I think that's what you're saying. And it's pre- this was pre internet as as a global marketplace right. I mean so so you know. They were still selling in country but their view was just entirely global. I mean it's just it's was amazing right to watch a company out of tel aviv. You know grow to to to what it has and you know it was really fun being. It was really fun being involved in it. I mean truly it really set me up for what we're doing today may forever grateful for for that for that opportunity. I i wanna find out about that. That's the heart of this interview but before we go into that. Tell me about the change. Your life at all for this company have been sold. Did you have enough equity they you. I don't know that you'd made it in some way. You know It was it was a it was a it was a substantial. It was a substantial sum. I mean you know back then and and it was just really interesting. I mean i learned a lot about about you. Know how you help you know. Help yourself when you get into those kinds of situations. Because i made all the bloody mistakes that you could possibly make. I mean really seriously You know the company is an israeli company You know there's wars going on you know bomb and and people are shooting missiles over there and you're like holy crap. Main is my equity. That i just sold my company for going to be real. I mean you know..

And and and and and and we're gonna find out all about that here in this interview and learn how guy who's built several successful companies is done it what we can take away from it. We can do it. Thanks to a host. Gator my sponsor if you need a website hosted i'm gonna tell you later. Why should go to hostgator dot com slash mickey for scott. What's the revenue. Do you guys are pulling in with appalachia. You know We've been really fortunate at this for seventeen years. We built a company from zero.

You're doing half a billion dollars in annual revenue we are. We are good lord. We took the company public two thousand eighteen on the new york stock exchange. So it's been quite a ride and it's awfully public awfully public. All right. i want to get into the good stuff of how you got to hear. But let me ask you this. I looked at life cycle. I went back to their website from the early years. I see in the early years here. It says life cycle was known as life fitness and it was created by a guy named dr keen democ. I confronted you with this and the beginning of the interview said well. Let me tell you a great story. There said you know what as long as you don't feel confronted. Let me ask you in the interview. What's the deal there. How is it. You're the creator. But i don't see gators at so so the way that took place you know i. I went to school in in in california. School called claremont mckenna. College my roommate night. You know we're always looking for the next big thing. Everybody else is trying to figure how they're going to get into management management school and business school and and we're like nah screw that let's let's go out and actually let's create a business so while we were in our dorm rooms in college we came across this idea to create of all things johnathon so a giaga fine. That's where you go. You run around and people sponsor you and and and our athletic department wanted us to do it so we we create it so we did the johnathon. We raised a bunch of money and we came across this idea that said you. We became a distributor of weight equipment. We could actually double because they get a fifty discount so they can double are buying power by becoming distributor and so it was really cool so instead of sixty thousand dollars rates we got one hundred and twenty thousand dollars worth of fitness equipment for our athletic program okay and and in doing so we became these distributors and then people started calling us because this is right in a day of when fitness was really changing. I'm old enough to be around when you know people are like ash shit. I'm not i'm not. I'm not gonna do fitness. You know main meat and potatoes and smoking and drink and that's what everybody was into. You know they really weren't into it. And and but we persevered and we started selling things to nautilus fitness centers to racquet ball clubs and week became one of the biggest distributors. You know in the in the southern california area. We had all of our football. All our football team members are track team members. You know we had all the athletes this thing until this jonathan thing into a business into a business and you got to you and your your buddy got to keep the profits from this business. Yeah we did. We started this out and we and we and we rented out a safeway shopping. Shaef way store and we had all of our equipment in it. We had our offices back there. You know we would ramiro running a business going to school and playing football and track and the like and so we with with all of our friends it was great and then one day this dude in mean the doctor that you you know you mentioned walks into our office and says hey i got this idea. Called you know life cycle. I don't even know if he had caught a name for it to be honest with. I don't remember and and He said this it's great you know it revolutionizes the way people do Fitness around riding a bike because before it was just those schwinn bikes that. I don't know if anybody remembers what they were but they were just sitting me re awful bikes attached to some kind of trainers so that they could you. No no. you're just on your own in a gym and it was it was it looked like a i mean mccain looked like it wasn't electronic at all and the life life cycle was the first one that actually gave you a display screen of how you were performing okay and and so it said okay. You're halfway up the hill and in did that and we said oh. Yeah this is great. We'll we'll we'll we'll take it on. So he gave us all of the distribution rights for you know the the world and he said you know have added you guys. You know. i'm turning it over to. you just did was he created. He said. I don't wanna be the guy marketing getting getting excited about renting out of safely shop agenda. You take it on scott take it on. It's okay it's all it's all on your own. I'm going to pay me some. You know some money and it's all yours and so we took it and we all week. We started designing the outside package. The way you see it and we started selling it and it's this is the way i talk about Business in general right. You can't by the way. Just drop down. you did. The coolest thing can wasn't working on the computer you said. I know a guy guy comes in brings. A brand. new camera can exit into the system within two minutes. So sorry you were saying that you took it over and yeah so you know so. We took this way. We took this on. And this isn't a time when i think minnesota's really when i look back on my career mean this was really the start of who i am around business right because it. This is the thing that we were doing with life. Fitness was not selling a computerized bite. Right for fitness. What we were doing is taking on status quo of people not wanting to exercise and the make exercise implore and so that i mean i my partner mean really was responsible for doing it as much as anybody you know. He's in the fitness hall of fame because he and a couple of other people are credited with aerobic fitness. And making it a big deal. And i mean when we were selling it status quo was. Hey i don't wanna do it. I don't need to do this. It's not in our pitch was. Hey listen if you get on this bike and if you ride at three days a week and if you rise it for twenty minutes every day you're.

Roxanne Francis Unpacks How Resentment Affects Relationships

"What is resentment like. How does it even built. You know it's so funny. We often look at these things. Expect these huge huge explanations. But i think resentment really just boils down to unexpressed anger or unexpressed frustration. Sometimes the frustration is there and the anger is there and sometimes we don't even recognize it and if we don't even recognize were harboring this thing. It's definitely unexpressed. it's unexpected verbally. But it comes out in so many different ways right just leaks out absolutely and you must feel it in your body like i mean how do clients explain resentment in their bodies or maybe brandon can weigh in after as well. Yeah i get different. Things from tightness in my chest knots in my stomach grinding. My t. a headaches all the time and checking just keep explaining. My resentment get continued falling asleep or staying asleep back right and just missing the body in general because you know when we hope anger. There's tension right. And so that can result in tightness in the body and once the resentment gets processed. Once we're able to discuss once we're able to find a resolution that physical kinship times to release itself not make sense tomb. It's this unexpressed anger frustration or dissatisfaction builds over time. You feel it in your body. How does it show up in relationships. There must be so many different ways that you see resentment. Come out whether it's in a very straightforward way or in all these kind of crawler ways that we may not even recognize as imminent south it can come through. Just you know in some women that i work with. The you know banging on pots pans. The popular hardy doing fine. You know sometimes that can show up you know in the bedroom right. Oftentimes went been used unresolved. People don't wanna be touched right. Get away from me. i'm not. I'm not into that but quite often people will come to me with you. Know they think that their issue is unique to them. But i hear these stories so often they play out like the same old tape where one partner will say.

"Nail polish removers. So women and men and whomever else wants to polish their nails paint their nails and then ultimately have to remove whatever it is. They painted them with or gels or whatever. Listen in the cosmetic industry it is interesting because yes is the fda supposed to regulate it. Yup but underlaw cosmetic products and ingredients do not need fda pre market approval basically. They don't have to test for anything and they can put it in there especially if it's proprietary but we're going to focus in on the nails.

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason yesterday I woke up in a slight panic. I woke up not feeling good. Let's put it that way. And I've had these feelings throughout the years kind of like a migraine but not a migraine. You wake up with a headache you wake up not feeling good feel like you might throw up. It's all my sinuses. They've been bothering me for years and we thought we'd get it knocked out with the outer gist but that never happened. But yesterday I woke up just not feeling right. Feeling a little off a little Spacey and then it hit me. Oh no could this be COVID? And I realized we're all going to have that panic when we feel something we're not used to because what we're going through right now for the record I don't think it was COVID because I'm feeling fine today. I didn't have a temperature but at the same time since I've been vaccinated I don't know what to expect if I do get COVID symptoms. I just had a bad day. I had a sign as day. The weather's been weird here in Nashville and we've had weather coming in and out and I just didn't feel good. I felt off. I think we're all going to have that panic now when we get sick. Could it be COVID? Could it be the big one? That's the scary part. What exactly do I feel? Normally I would think I would know what the answer is.

AFC South Football Preview: Best Bets, Picks and Predictions

"Kick things off and this may be more two minute drill as we go through the division in alphabetical order. Starting with the houston texans who find themselves listed at a robust twenty three to one to win the division their win total at fan duel. Sportsbook sits at four dollar twenty. Should you want to go under. It's amazing when you look at the houston texans overall profile just a year and a half ago. This very franchise headache. Twenty four seven lead over the kansas city chiefs in the playoffs. We were all talking about them. Maybe getting to the afc championship as cinderella. And here we are a franchise completely in shambles most likely without a franchise quarterback and really lacking direction When you look at the houston texans worse record against playoff teams last year owen. Ten and this is despite to shawn watson putting gaudy numbers but pain rather than breakdown. What the texans don't have on either the offense or defensive side of the ball. should we attacked a coaching. Hire david kelly takes over as the oldest first time head after twenty seven years of serving as an nfl assistant. I'm not really sure what's going on with the organization and we're seeing the market react in a strong manner. I mean this total has been blitzed from under five in this morning. You look some places. And it's four under minus twenty five so like three point eight five the win total here. So there isn't a lot of confidence in the texans. And you start to look at what this roster is and it's tough to find wins on the schedule with who they're going to be trotting out there. I mean we talked about to shawn watson. And how fantastic. He was over. The last five decades seven quarterbacks have had as good of a season as to sean had last year and they finished with a losing record. Only seven quarterbacks. In the history of this league have played as well as the shawn watson team finished with a losing record so an shawn watson texans last year. That was the worst record of any of those quarterbacks so it really just shows how talent void this roster is and somehow you mentioned the new regime bringing in an old coach in cali but the organization really doubled down on that approach and they've managed the impossible really of having the oldest roster in the nfl with below average cap space. It's not a good combination. And so you know you start to look at the four wins last year and how they achieved it and it was still an offense that was above average inefficiency thirteenth. And now you have this. Massive downgraded quarterback and i mean tyrod taylor is what he has. He's thirty two and the best attributes about him are his athleticism his quickness. How fast he is but at thirty two those of all those things and so this is just a monster downgrade. You do look at the schedule of defenses. That the texans will play its. It's bottom six overall and against the oh. There is some hope there. I guess defensively that is going to still be a problem. You're looking at a unit that finished thirtieth inefficiency. The schedule of offense is this year are going to be really good. Can be hovering around the top. Five rate in basically overall efficiency passing offense all of those key areas I i don't really know how this team's going to get to their win. Total and i think that's probably the interesting part about

How You Maximize the Quality of Your Life with Behavioral Scientist Jon Levy

"I'm a person who really throws myself into. Whatever i think might be able to improve the quality of life and so i would do courses and read books and so on and one of the things that i jumped into was a seminar and a seminar leader. Said something that really had me me examined the entire way. My life is set up. He said that the fundamental element that defined the quality of our lives are the people we surround ourselves with and the conversations of behalf of them and he said that means that. If you want to impact your life what you need to do is either change the conversations that you're having with people or change the people you're having them with and that was fundamentally different than what everybody else was saying. I was setting my alarm for like crazy early in the morning and then headaches news eight thousand times and skipping the gym and feeling bad about it and he's now saying maybe you should just hang out with a bunch of people who fitness as part of their life and instead of going to the movies and eating tub of popcorn you'll meet them for a run and then it becomes natural for your life while i'm a science geek. I'm a behavioral scientist now. And so i looked at the research and there was this crazy study. By these two guys chris and fowler and they were actually looking at the obesity epidemic and they were curious does it spread from person to person. I got cold or is it. A percentage of the population like alzheimer's. Right you don't get alzheimer's shook hands with somebody who has alzheimer's and what they found was startling. If you have a friend who's obese your chances increase by forty five percent your friends who don't even know them have a twenty percent increase. Chance and their friends have a five percent increase chant and this kind of effect is true for happiness marriage and divorce trait smoking habits voting habits bitterly. Everything spreads from person to person and so i figured my biggest responsibility for my life would be to not only connect with extraordinary people balloons. It could have really in tact a really meaningful impact on my life but tabs them connect with each other so it spreads further and that was kind of the piffling. The problem is i. frankly didn't come from like when those super connected rich families. My parents are immigrants. And so i had to then figure out how to connect with the people i admired

"I wished i could have met you. I can't tell if my life would have been much easier or more complicated with you. In when i still wished i had met you when i heard my mom lost you before you could join the world. I was dumbfounded. I never knew until recently. Although i have been blessed with lovely siblings i couldn't help but feel a pang of pain tugging at my heart when my mother told me she didn't see much affected by the ordeal like i was. I guess time has helped. Heal that wound. Ever since i found out about you. I've been wondering how you'd have looked like and how you fit into our family. Would you be as reserved as i am. While this my little sister or a little bit of both like my brother. I guess i would never know. Mom is amazing in every sense of the word. Extremely selfless and very protective. Dad is firm and supportive. They are not very good at showing emotions but they are great to my siblings can be a headache but would have loved them. I can't imagine my life without them but a part of me is also glad that you dodge the bullet entering this crooked world. I find myself in. Life isn't fair. But the god who created life is faithful. So there's hope. I know you would never get to read this but i needed to write down how i feel about you. You never existed. So i have no reason to miss you but i felt a part of me died when i heard about you for all persons out there who have lost a child or a sibling. I know it is a terrible feeling. We may never understand why they were taken away from us. But god knows best god always restores what has been taken from us and what he gives them. Return is more than what was taken. Take heart and comfort yourself. Knowing that they're gentle souls are at peace away from this chaotic

Margaret will you elvis. I know what. You're going to say. Mary me maggie eyes bulged. Was she dreaming. Are you asking me to. Elvis smiled and got down on one knee and ask the unbelievable yet overdue question again she said yes breathlessly. Still in shock over the turn of events so he chose her. Whoever he was seeing must not have had enough to keep her efforts.

Maybe one help or maybe you just how big this genre is and want to cash in. I'm not saying. I think it's right or ethical but this is and has been our reality for centuries we may think we've evolved past it but we really haven't now believe it or not. I really don't care about your intentions in this space because after trying to bet trying my best to convert people away from the dark side if you will. I learned the intentions are not something i can change if you can hear my story if you can see other families of victims on the internet begging for help and you don't care that something inside of you that i will not be able to change today but the thing with intentions is you may feel like they're this deep dark secret inside of you but they will come to the surface so no matter your intentions with true crime content. You you make just remember that a good deal of your audience will most likely see right through your work to those intentions in. My advice is to respect your audience by being honest with them. Are you doing tour for a show. Just you can buy a new car awesome. Let your audience know that. I bet most of them will be thrilled for you. What they will be thrilled about is if you say that you're in this to help the victims and the families but then you only help yourself and before you know it. You're on instagram with your new. Bmw they're gonna see right through that now. A great way to avoid all this headache is to actually just have good intentions with your work. That doesn't mean you have to work yourself to the bone and donate every dollar to charity. That's not what i'm saying. What i'm saying is that if you don't have good intentions in this space be ready for a lot of people to call you out on

And that's raising the question of whether building there should happen at all. Npr's lauren summer has the story as a city planner in silicon valley. Michelle king. here's all about one of the biggest headaches in the bay area housing. Oh my goodness housing. Here is extremely expensive. Sunnyvale has very high cost of living in may the median. Home price in sunnyvale. Where king works was one point. Eight million so the city is looking at a different kind of housing higher density. That's walkable transit and greenspace. It would go into a part of town called moffett park right now. It's just offices lots of low rise buildings with wide parking lots one of the most sustainable things you can do is put people where they work and put people where transit is so. This is a huge opportunity. This isn't just sunnyvale vision. It shared by one of the largest landowners. Moffett park google over the last five years. The company has quietly bought more than seventy properties. Here worth almost three billion dollars. Jeff holtzman is google's director of real estate development for sunnyvale. We're incorporating sustainability into everything we do in our developments and we're doing it to support our employees but also the community and hopefully the environment. Sunnyvale is in the process of rezoning the land to allow google to build new offices and housing and just to know. Google is one of npr's financial supporters. And there's one more detail the city is looking at. This land is on the shore of san francisco bay which puts it right in the path of sea level rise sea level rises already happened.

Decision-Making in COVID Family Life with Professor Emily Oster

"Was part period of time when everything was very very black and white and it felt like even discussing thinking about risks and actually calculating in thinking about why we're making different decisions was almost like frowned upon so i felt like your newsletter was one of the first places where i was like. Actually let's do some math and think about how are decisions in this context which is wildly different but headache compare to decisions. We've made at other times. Could you talk a little bit more about that. Visiting grandparents posed in kind of the thought process that went through gauging risk. And how you explain risk to people and maybe a little bit about the response. Sure so at that time. I think this was kind of we. Were coming out of these first stage of like everybody is like down. Everyone's in their house and starting to ask these questions about okay my kids daycare's reopening or you know now it's can. I see my parents in two months three months. Like can i see them or they're safe ways to do that big. You're exactly right that people had initially was sort of like there's totally black and white like don't do anything. Don't leave your. Don't leave your house but there became a point. Where at least people started thinking about not doing that and i think a lot of people felt very trapped in the question of how to think about this in the new world and so kind of what i tried to do was both give people a little data and give them a framework to think about that which started with the idea of just being very explicit. About what the question was that they were asking and in a sense of. Oh that is really obvious. I think that it was the piece that people it was a piece that was missing for a lot of people so telling people look what you wanna do is ask you know. Should i see my parents or not. But should i see my parents now or in two weeks or now or in six months or now or not until the vaccine. And i think that kind of idea that you really need to think about what. The alternatives are the concrete alternatives are. I think was already somewhat helpful because sometimes people say well you know what like. I'm actually it's not like i'm not willing to wait until there's a vaccine like i cannot imagine doing that and so then it totally changes how. I'm going to think about this choice. When i know no matter when i see them there's going to be some risk and so the question is then. How do we mitigate the rest counter we evaluate the size of the risks and then he spent a lot of time talking to people about. Okay what exactly. Can you do to make these risks smaller. What's the value of testing. What's the value of quarantine. How do we think about those. And then how big are they relative to some other risks that you undertake every day

NFL Sets Stiff Penalties for the Unvaccinated

"Is cracking down to get players to get Covid 19 vaccines Just days before training camps began, All 32 teams got a memo saying outbreaks among unvaccinated players could cause teams to forfeit games. That would be costly for both the teams and players CBS this morning Saturday, co host Dana Jacobson explains Why there's this no nonsense approach. There's Brady's past Grand Kowske. At the end of the 2020 NFL season, the league managed to crown a champion. Getting there wasn't easy. Covid outbreaks among teams forced the league to reschedule several games, which caused logistical and financial headaches. NFL team owners want to have these games played in full and as safely as possible. Jonathan Jones is a CBS sports NFL insider. He says the league hopes to avoid a repeat of last year, which is why it sent a memo to all 32 teams Thursday, warning that if a covid spike on a team postpones again, which can't be rescheduled, the team responsible will have to forfeit shoulder the financial losses and players on both teams won't get paid. The memo upset several league stars like opera wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who posted then deleted this tweet being put in a position to hurt my team because I don't want to partake in the vaccine is making me question my future in the NFL. He later posted. I got about nine more years than me. You look at the monetary side of this, and of course, it does not benefit the owners to miss out on any of these games. Jones says The NFL memo is proof that owners don't think enough players are protected.

Willow Bark vs. Aspirin

"Hey everybody stage popham here. Founder of the school of evolutionary herbalism and. Thanks so much. Take time to watch another video. Here on our channel and The topic for discussion today is on comparing and contrasting willow bark and aspirin. Think it's really common for folks to think about willow really as just kind of an alternative replacement for aspirin as most know. That willow bark also contains salicylic acid which is essentially the main compound in aspirin. But what we really come up against here. And i think this is a great place to illustrate the difference between looking at a plant through more of a biomedical or allopathic lens verses through more of a holistic or vital list lens because when we look at willow bark and just see it as an herbal form of salicylic acid all of a sudden. We're looking at overlooking a lot of attributes of this plant. That are very important to understand in order to use it holistically and if we think of it just as an herbal form of aspirin it can oftentimes lead to misuse of this plant which can lead to possible adverse side effects if you get give it to the wrong person but more often than not what that will lead to. Is it not working in the way that you think it will boy. It really can set people up for disappointment. If you think. Drinking some willow bark tea or taking Some willow bark. Tincture is going to work as well as or you know. Take your pain away or headache or things like that. Quite as effectively as popping an aspirin.

There were a lot of fears that that things were going to be bad and for a lot of travelers things have been bad It is summer is tough anytime but this summer has been particularly tough. It has been disappointing to a lot of people who were really excited about. You know finally getting out and traveling. And they fly right into delays cancellations high cost. Expensive problems You name it as you mentioned. The summer season in any year comes with a host of travel challenges. A lot of times. they're weather related. We've seen some bad storms in the northeast for example but what other kinds of problems are travelers facing this summer. Well there have been particular shortages of people you know has been pilots in some cases. American made a mistake with with twenty pilots of when they would get out of the retraining. That's required after a layoff in a lotta respects airlines. Were starting from scratch. They had federal money to keep pilots and flight attendants on the payroll But a lot of them chose to take early retirement. A lot of them chose to not work during the pandemic and they needed retraining when they came back a lot of the airport infrastructure in staff the wheelchair pushers were gone. The the fewers were gone people to drive. Catering trucks all those different aspects. And so when you hit the reset button and you have this.

"And then when the word got out that i treated headache then i would get patients where they didn't fit that criteria of the circus. Genyk neck pain headaches. So i had to do a lot of research and reading on other types of headaches and things where i can provide a really good differential diagnosis and figure out. What's exactly going on with the patient. As far as what type of headache. They may have so that. I can give the best treatment to that patient. So that's one reason and then just seeing a lot of headache patients. Throughout the years i feel like use this caseload. These patients can fall through the cracks. Where people aren't sure what to do with them like different healthcare they may see a variety of different healthcare providers and not get the care they need simply because maybe a certain healthcare provider wasn't trained in headache so for example. I just had this Girl who find me online. And she said she'd been going to doctors for five years without any relief and she was just exhausted and then finally looked me up. She found me online. Came to me for a few sessions and she started feeling better right away just by the education that i'd given her so i just feel like I guess you could say it's underserved or many people don't know that. Pt can make such a big difference and you must have other stories like that. Don't do any other cases come to mind. You were able to help someone who perhaps thought there. They weren't going to get any relief anytime soon. Yes i have tons of stories but another one that comes to mind in this one is common is. I'll have a patient that comes new saying that they've been diagnosed with migraines and they've been taking my migraine medications and doing interventions for migraine which has not helped. Then i'll do my evaluation in the clinic and it turns out there. Headache was not a migraine and it was actually a different type of headache. Coming from again. I see a ton of server. Pedantic neck pain headaches so again. It was one of these types of headaches. We did physical therapy. And they were already feeling differences in two weeks of therapy. So i do see a lot of that..

"Treatments is Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr Beth Robertson. Welcome to the program. Thank you for inviting so let me ask you about your job. Do you spend all day every day. Seeing people who have had do a deal so I have a background in both nerve an headaches. But I'm interested only in the nerves above the neck so all day every day. Those are my patient and are most of these people have do. They have migraines or draw. Majority of our patients do have migraines often very severe migraines that have been hard to treat with their local physicians. So they've had years of of difficult to treat headaches before we see them. You know before we talk about Migraines. Tell us about the headaches that most of us get from time to time the ordinary had to do call tension headaches. Why do we head in common so I think yeah? So what most people refer to and they're talking about that ordinary or normal headache would be attention headache. That's more of a a mild dull pressure type sensation on both sides of the head sometimes triggered by stress. Sometimes not sleeping enough the night before. And those are often treated with over the counter. Medicines which one's best so most patients prefer in saids non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines like ibuprofen or a leave. Any over the counter pain medicine might be held for the seat of infants. Okay too whatever works. That's right and most of the time people are able to function with those they take the medicine they go about their day and I never see them in clinic when my kids complain about headaches or even for myself I just say drink some water and that seems to help. Maybe it's just going to give you a little bit of time. Does do people get headaches? Because they don't drink enough water so dehydration can be a trigger for headaches often a trigger for migraine headaches and my son who struggles with migraine. I also tell him to drink some water as a first line but it's less common to trigger the tension type headache. I was surprised to learn that there are forty million Americans. Wonder you're so busy. Lucky we got you. In the studio forty million Americans who have migrated. It's eighteen percent of women and six percent amid much more common in women. Any reason for that so I wanNA say to you for those almost forty million patients. There's only about five hundred headache specialists. So we are quite busy but As far as why women? So the brain doesn't like change and Migraine. Brands are particularly vulnerable to changes in sleep changes in stress and changes in hormones. So women have those cyclic changes in estrogen around their ovulation and menstrual cycles and then around pregnancies and as they get close to to menopause. There's this roller coaster over their lives and that tends to contribute to triggering the headache. What can you do to fix or to help? People suffer from Migraines so there are a number of treatment options and would he would divide treatments into acute treatment so a treatment that you would take a onset of the headache and then a treatment that they might take every day to reduce the frequency or severity of the headaches. Those are preventative medicines. You've got some new in both categories. Right we deal yeah. It's a very exciting time for migraine. It's nice to be a headache practitioner these days because we have so many new options are classic options for the acute treatments. Have been as I mentioned sort of over the counter and then non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs and then we've had trip Dan's for many years now that we would use for patients but more recently we've had some newer classes so we have something called a g pant. We just came out you bro. Japan does the first one that's been. Fda approved that came out over the holidays and that is focused on a different pathway. So instead of our classic migraine paths that. We're trying to address now. We're focused on something called the siege. Erp or Calcitonin gene related peptide molecule. So right right. I know it's a word but see. Drp We've known for decades has been involved in migraine. So we know that during a migraine seizure goes up when you treat the migraine. Cgip comes down and if you inject CRP it will cause a migraine. So we've wanted to figure out how to disrupt that siege our pathway. For quite some time and the preventative. We can talk about in a little bit if you'd like have been focused on that pathway but in our acute medicines you bro. Japan has been designed to block the receptor for CGP and it seems like this is able to bring down the headaches away similar to the trip. Dan's that we've been using for headache in the past but maybe better tolerated and maybe a little safer for some of our patients so our trip. Dan's were an issue for anybody with a heart attack or stroke because they constrict blood vessels and this new class. This Japan class does not constrict blood. Vessels all right and the exciting thing also is those three new drugs approved in two thousand eighteen pepper vent migraines three different ones Do they work you? Yes because no drug works in every patient but yes these are also trying to address that same C- gop pathway so there are three what we call monoclonal. Antibodies that are out so these are antibodies that are targeting in two of the cases. They're targeting the PEA protein and one of them is targeting again. The receptor trying to interfere with that pain signal that we think is going on during migraine. And then there's another one that should come out later this year and so these have been given in a monthly injection form. There's also a potential for an every three month injection form if people are taking them over. Time about half of patients will have a fifty percent reduction in their headaches. Pretty good. It's pretty good. It's pretty good. If someone has migraines they get they find something that works then does that efficacy where away and after move onto something else or if you find something that works are you set both can happen. Some do find that magic drug. Maybe one that we've already been using for many years. And they do well for years and then other patients may find that the effectiveness wears off over time and they require something else. And I don't want to mislead you know the. Gop medicines are very glamorous but we do have a lot of other weapons in our as well. That can also help such as. There's another new one that I really feel obligated to mention. That's in the acute medicines Category called last minute in it. It's a cousin of the trip. John's but also does not constrict blood vessels so again. It's about finding something that's safer for. These patients that have really been untreated for migrant population. And then we also use botox injections quite regularly as a preventative with good. Success Counseling.

"What's an expert's opinion you might ask will join us in? Studio is the CO director of the sports cardiology clinic at Mayo Clinic. Dr Todd Miller. He's also my hero. He's a longtime runner and has completed over twenty marathons detrimental good to have you on the program. Tell us about this. Sports Cardiology clinic. Mayo has a long tradition of teaching people about exercise. And the way that has generally evolved as people who generally have been sedentary are encouraged to exercise. And that's part of the executive health program but it also applies to people who might have new onset coronary disease. If you've got a heart attack your place on a Cardiac Rehab program and that's been a supervised exercise approach that applies to people who generally been sedentary the sports cardiology clinic that we have been performing for the past half dozen years relates to people who consider themselves athletes. So it's more than just the recreational exerciser. Somebody who's entering competitive events and we generally break this up into two camps. There's the pediatric sports cardiology clinic. Which mainly applies to high school and collegiate athletes much of what goes on their screening people for underlying heart problems. It's become a big issue and in the older adult athlete. It applies to people who might be entering a five K. Or A ten K. And they will continue participating but they have some concern about their heart or they've actually been diagnosed with heart disease and they're wondering can continue these activities so you said that you're trying to screen them for an underlying cardiac problem so that they wouldn't get into trouble when they did compete that's correct. And how do you do that? Well most of the screening goes on and the younger athletes so if you look at a backwards each year in the United States. There's about eighty cardiac events on the athletic field or shortly thereafter. That occur in the younger athletes. And when you look at what? Cardiac conditions are causing those deaths. They can be identified as a few underlying abnormalities. Something called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It's an over over development of the heart muscle heart muscle that's excessively thick. Or some of these people are prone to certain arrhythmias of the heart because they have congenital conditions. Call Long Queue T- syndrome or some Individuals have an artery that the corey instead of taking the usual path takes an abnormal pathway. That can also be associated with sudden death in young people. She you can screen for these conditions. The trouble is our screening. Tests are not very good for applying to large populations at least the cheap tests. And if you want to apply the more accurate tests becomes a very expensive proposition. I read recently. That there's evidence that extreme athletes marathoners ironman etcetera might be increasing their risk for developing an arrhythmia atrial fibrillation and possibly even coronary artery disease through that's correct. There's been a lot of concern about that so the way these studies are usually done. They identify a big population and community population. And they look at the prevalence of coronary artery disease or atrial fibrillation and then within that population they can identify a handful of extreme athletes. Maybe hundred athletes out of several thousand people and what they'll do then is take the athletes and match them to other members of the population by age and gender who are not athletes. And they look at the prevalence of these conditions atrial fibrillation or coronary artery disease. And in these cross sectional studies that are perform that way the prevalence data for relations about been about five times higher than similar sedentary people. Why Oh there's a lot of Plausible mechanisms for that. When you exercise you develop. Let's call that led a Cart Syndrome so your heart chambers getting bigger and the atrial fibrillation arises from the upper chambers. The heart the a tra- so they will also enlarge as part of the Athletic Training. And it is you stretch heart muscle. It makes it more ARRHYTHMIA PRONE. So that's one of the more common mechanisms why this is felt to be more common in the athletes. Have you ever Studied whether or not marathoners or those who have done. High intensity exercise live longer or don't live as long as the general population. It's hard to tease out that data but there are studies that have looked at it and probably the best study was done in France and they looked at Cyclists who had been in the Tour de France and they found that again compared to age match controls and all that who are sedentary. The cyclists were living longer than the people who weren't physically active. Well let's talk about the average people. Use The word athlete in the beginning and it seems to meet a lot of people get confused about the word athlete. I'd love to know what a cardiologists definition of what an athlete means. We consider someone in athlete. Who's entering formal organized events and for the adult crowd. It's mainly distance running or triathletes. There are some other sports. But that's most of it and the Upper Midwest here we also see some cross country skiers etcetera. So that's how we define an athlete. Part of the reason why this has become such a prominent issue is if you lookit entrance so some of these are repeat people but if you'll get entrance into distant events of five K. or longer each year. It's twenty million in the United States right now. So as population's aging more and more people seem to be doing this type of thing and then these cardiac issues arise so for the most of us if we want to do a good for our heart and we want to be heart healthy. How much exercise do we need? What should we do right? So the emphasis. These days has been on not just exercise but physical activity so exercise falls under the larger umbrella of physical activity and the reason. There's such an emphasis on physical activity is we're in the middle of this. Obesity epidemic forty percent of the country is now medically obese and the new physical activity guidelines for Americans the second edition of these just released in two thousand eighteen and they put a strong emphasis on just being active at any point in time. So the old version of the guidelines said. Oh you need to do ten minutes of some type of exercise type of activity at least at a particular time. The new version says forget all that just get around and move more so it's the old take the stairs instead of the elevator absolutely but it is it still true that thirty minutes of vigorous exercise most days of the week is is recommended. Yes so these activity guidelines emphasise emphasize this activity that we usually think of as exercise just being more active with daily life. That's called NEAT. Non Exercise Activity Thermo Genesis. That's new buzzword but in addition to that I also want to do half an hour five days a week of endurance or aerobic exercise like Brisk Walking Jogging. And addition to that you should be doing a couple of days a week of strength training to improve your overall muscle tone which in older people in particular has been shown to help reduce the risk of falls. Cetera is bigger as exercise meaning. You're breathing heavy. Vigorous exercise means. You're breathing heavy so you don't need a formal exercise tests to check this out. You can basically do that by using the simple breath test so when you're out exercising with somebody should be doing enough exercise so that you're starting to feel. Miley dismissed are shorter breath. You might even break out into a little bit of a sweat but you should still be able to carry on a conversation full sentences all right no question about it. Exercise is good for you and it's especially good for your heart. It's that simple. Thanks to Mayo Clinic Heart specialist in the CO director of the sports cardiology clinic.
