California Legislature Passes Mental Health Parity Law
"Federal and state laws require insurance companies to cover mental health Justus they would medical care but actually getting insurance for mental health treatment can be tricky. In California, the Legislature is trying to make that promise riel yesterday it past one of the country's strictest mental health parity laws as NPR's Yuki Noguchi reports. When Monica Vera Schubert son Bobby, injured his knee a decade ago, she monitored his painkiller prescription until it ran out. That's where all of a sudden his behavior started changing to the point that he was no longer a friendly, happy go Lucky kid. He raided his grand prize medicine cabinet and sold off his mother's jewellery to feed is growing addiction. Where Vera Schubert lives in Burbank, California, state and federal law already require insurance companies to cover mental health as they do medical care. But she says she encountered multiple hurdles once her insurance pre authorized her son for inpatient rehab. But when he showed up, they couldn't get the insurance to coordinate with them.

Midnight Moment 4 - Voter ID and A Conspiracy Theory - burst 1
"Jury of Nation. Part hair and it's time for another installment of Liberty Virus via the midnight moment delivery system. that. I was night three of the Democrat National Convention Day One, hundred, sixty, fifteen days flattening curb. It allows unlucky enough to over here made me throw up in my mouth a little bit I gotta be honest with you wanted to wash the taste out with out. But. In the end, I settled for for a Nice Cup of coffee. George Carlin one said I don't have pet peeves. I have made major psychotic fucking hatreds. So in the spirit of both George Carlin and my complete total annoyance with current events, we're going to cover two topics with you. Tonight the first is a voter ID, and the second as a self developed spiracy theory that I would like your indulgence to entertain as strictly a mental exercise though in our society, there are things you. Have to show ID for buying a gun getting prescription painkillers buying alcohol buying. We'd words legal of course, a buying porn. You have to show ID at the DMV the board, an airplane to board trained drive an automobile the list goes on and on and on survivor is going to be required to do any of the above things or you know conduct adulting in any way as it always is lot why states not have a? Statute that requires valid identification busted as yourself that question for a second, you may not like the answer I mean Article One section. Four of the US Constitution states the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof. But the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations except as to places of choosing senator I mean there was. An assumption clearly present in our constitution that citizens right to vote is protected under free speech under the First Amendment. But in a citizen right the but I mean article two section one clearly spells out that our founders framers specified who could and couldn't be president no person except the natural born citizen or citizen of the United States at the time of this adoption of this constitution shall be eligible to the office of the president. Neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained? The age of thirty five years have fourteen years been a residence within the United States our founders and framers carved out specifics. Do you really believe they had any intention any intention at all for non citizens to vote in our elections? Give me a break. So if they're going to push the agenda and by the way I'm speaking to leftists and liberals who seem to think that showing identification at a polling place is somehow minority voter suppression Oh really then I say, well, no, I devote no idea by guns no background checks ever for anything. No idea to buy booze or weed. Or board a plane. Is it. Any wonder that liberal states have started issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants? Because if somehow some way. We restore common sense in order to our republic and require a valid form of identification vote illegal immigrants will be their voters and their voting block. I'm not suggesting we give up the right to an anonymous ballot that's absolutely protected by the First Amendment I get it. No. One has stating that your driver's license number be attached to your ballot. But. If you can't get into a bar without id if you can't buy liquor without ID, why should you be able to access the polling place? I just want to point out and make it clear the blatant outright shitting hypocrisy and quite frankly left racism in the claim that somehow requiring an idea vote is minority suppression really I mean here in Colorado most liquor stores that I frequent require id for every transaction and believe me I do not look twenty one or younger bars and nightclubs in this area often use a barcode scanners. Id and I know that it's that way in some other states, somehow all of this is okay but somehow requiring an ID to vote arguably the most violent in the world voting is minority voter Suppression Racist Bull Shit. So as the assertion that minorities by the way don't have an ID or don't have the ability or somehow incapable of getting one, I mean the bring specificity again. Zona adults over the age of eighteen are required. To carry ID at all times. That's whether you're walking down the street driving your car or otherwise, and that has been in effect since World War. Two, this is not something new. This is not something that the Clintons or the bushes or anyone else do any time in recent history this has been the law of the land for literally decades. Whether that laws right or wrong as up to you. But really do we really need any more outside influence in our country regardless of what the political spectrum you stand on our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this break.

A conspiracy theory I fully admit it. I have no evidence of this except what may be going on around us and some thoughts that I have from the Golden Age of talk, radio in the nineties I sometimes get what I refer to as nuggets of Universal Truth from what most people would consider fairly odd sources. You know movies, songs, sports, overhearing pieces of a conversation, etc one of the things that was kind of profound to me and rain true didn't I didn't really understand the time was the movie captain America the Winter Soldier. Now there's a scene again. Tomorrow will because they're fantastic and I'm going to kind of summarize here there's a scene where they're in a bucket in they're talking to basically an all German scientists. Brain is good put on on a computer and all creepy but isn't that scene they talk about humanity's freedom came. and. One of the things that they said was if you try to take that freedom, they resist humanity needed to surrender. It's freedom willingly. And they finally created a world. So chaotic that you vanity was ready to surrender it's freedom for its own security. Now I know that sounds bizarre and maybe I'm maybe I'm just being paranoid maybe I'm suffering from the Kobe. Kobe lockdown paranoia or whatever you want to call it. The understand this if you wanted to usher in a gestapo-type National Police Force. It had no loyalty to the constitution but only the politicians you know Kinda like Nazi Germany. What would you do? Well. First of all, you'd have to get the police to quit. So if you control the purse strings for the police, department what better way to get them to quit than it, cut their wages, cut their budget and then make them liable for I. Don't know everything. What if he told them to stand down while like Portland Eighty. Three nights of rioting destroys property assaulting assaulting citizens decade the police to quit what about like new? York. They cut the budget of Major Crimes Unit and shootings have gone up. To three hundred percent. Since that happened now, I wanNA make it clear that I do not support a national police force now. Yes we can argue that yes, we have we have federal agents the DA's the ATF the FBI etc. But none of them are actively patrolling the streets but how do you do it? How do you implement a Gestapo of social justice warriors that are essentially thought police, which is what the what's the leftist seem to want anyone that that goes contrary to their narrative anyone that disagrees with any they say politically. Well if you get all the local cops to quit, you have to have something because your citizens will not bag. For protection somebody did is friendly to that idea wins the White House than the Federal Police Force. Is created and then we end up like Nazi Germany. They're already talking about making kids where buttons identified that they either have or have not been vaccinated for Covid. Nineteen. One. Just go out and do yellow stars. Pink triangles.

20 Minutes About Traditional Chinese Medicine
"Hey, Marcus welcome to the show Tame Martin well I have to say I've been really looking forward to it because we've known each other now for well over a decade and while you had taken quite an interesting path of going real deep into Chinese Madison starting and you know actively practicing this while ancient on over in Europe and anyways I've been really wanting to do this show on Chinese medicine because over the past few months we've covered quite A few interesting topics you on the podcast about the microbiome new tropics, cavalry metabolic health, and so forth. NFL Lot of the conclusions that we're drawing in our recent age seem to have actually been practiced for thousands of years in Chinese medicine, and that brought me back to you. But before we go deep into this topic, why don't you first tell us a little bit about how he got into Chinese medicine in the first place? Yes. Sure. So Basketball and tennis when I was a kid a teenager and frequent injuries and went to all the doctors a bunch of Western medicine treatments that didn't quite help and then I ended guy practicing Japanese acupuncture. So they just using really really thin fine needles that you almost don't feel and I remember going up to his office and could barely. Account on her car is my Nieto's started so bad at its second cute rain in them and then, and then you just put a bunch of needles somewhere. I hopped off his bench. Like if nothing was. Like nothing was wrong and I remember it took forever to get up the stairs there and all that just up down. was made quite an impact on me re that that was like immediate immediate. That must have left an impression and you tried like well, traditional. Western. Medicine to treat your knee at that time just conventional stuff your painkillers, etc.. Physiotherapy all the things that they give you go talk none of them were orthopedic specialist none of that worked now, not only for some things that works and then and then this guy is. By. The way you play affected. Enough such bad acne base and your low energy levels and that you'll always cold that is just the branch of the same route. So it's all it all kind of linked together with the same root cause and. Then, he gave me a bunch of herbs in two months later up in this really cystic acne was really bad doing a lot of western medicine things that it took quite a toll my health to at the time 'cause. He's injections or quiet. They're messing with your system out there drying you out your spacious clans and older glance pretty much everywhere, and so there's a lot of side effects and he gave me a bunch of herbs so to Vivian Natural Dumb. That made my help me keep my back in away and made my Kimble's significantly reduce and so. That's what hooked, and then I always wanted to become a doctor. So I had a high school degree. So I got a scholarship and the fine print scholarship that I could pretty much use it anywhere and so was thinking, do I go to the United States in Germany? China. Server. Since then you know I was interested in Chinese medicine also and and that's actually where we met. Yeah. So I got, you know I had a had a spot at a German university medical school and didn't go and instead you we went to China to be. Teachers for a few months, and while while teaching their inner, we didn't have much to do teaching. So end around I went around there's over four thousand, but they call integrative medicine hospitals. So it's Chinese medicine and Western medicine together combined in different departments. Of course, everybody does what they're good at but are essentially were together and a lot of time on these speak laments in China in one of those muscles and then I signed up at a Chinese university instead of the German one and I study what they call Jewish, Jehovah Chinese, medicine, and Western medicine combined with the focus being on the Chinese medicine side. And I completed that study it's a five year degree mostly in Chinese language. Muslim classes were essentially chinese-language in the beginning it a little bit of English classes in a Western medicine intended teachers kind of because they're English was so bad. In Chinese anyways even though we were like international and that was in. Beijing right. That was on Beijing five years in Beijing, and then I went to Hong Kong for another five years where we met again. At the end, I did my phd in what's called evidence based Chinese medicine over using modern scientific methods like clinical trials, Placebo, controlled randomized control trials, and instead of giving you experts at drunk we're using for example, in ancient acupuncture protocols or in my case was elbow pain it's like a two thousand year old extra puncture point protocol that they've been using since at least two thousand years per elbow pain and re looked at it was the is out son of modern science and understanding how that stuff works but we are playing these ancient principles. The Same WanNa do for you today was these five health tips or twenty twenty TM health. Cultivation, wisdom, that's what they call for staying. Healthy. So I, WanNa give you a few tips and ahead of quotes from the ancient books, and then I also pulled up a few research studies that kind of backup, what they're saying or giving another perspective on it. So we re using these ancient time tested principles, and then we're also looking at them. You know some the lenses of scientific method world of mearns,
How the U.S. Ceded Control of Drug Supplies to China
"Acetaminophen, antibiotics and high blood pressure. Medicines are among a number of pharmaceutical products and ingredients made predominantly by China. Disruptions and high demand during the pandemic reinforced concerns about the dependence here on this, and the shortage of a simple over the counter painkillers shows how dependent the United States has become on China. For vital pharmaceutical supplies,
"Hey, there a warning before I. Start Today Show. We're GONNA. Be Talking about some pretty heavy topics. Today will be talking about mental health anxiety depression. And surviving suicide. Parental discretion is advised. In twenty, nine, thousand, nine, nearly eight, hundred, thousand people died of suicide. means, every forty seconds someone was taking their own life. And, suicide is a global phenomenon in certainly their populations, certain people, certain experiences that place. You at greater risk of suicide. But for every person who dies from suicide, it's estimated that there's another twenty. Who attempted suicide? That means for every one person who dies of suicide. There are twenty people who survive it. But death by suicide and suicide attempts are preventable. Now, that is not to say that you. You alone can prevent someone. From taking their own life or from even trying. But. It does mean that we've got to start having these conversations more openly. We've got to remove the stigma. GotTa be able to know the sign so that there's something we can do so that we can intervene. So today because of the pandemic, because of racial tensions because of the world that we live in today, suicide rates are higher than ever. Now, I've heard reports that suicides are up nearly two hundred percent so far in twenty twenty and I did my best to substantiate those statistics. Night can't tell you. I can substantiate the number of suicides is that much higher wouldn't surprise me. I just can't substantiate it when I can tell you is that Google searches Calls to suicide prevention lines and visits to online support groups are up more than two hundred percent since the lockdown began. You should also know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. In fact, I WANNA lead with some really powerful statistics so that you'll begin to think about this, not just in terms of you or your family members. But your neighbors, your parents, your grandparents, your nieces, or nephews every day. The CDC estimates about one, hundred, twenty, three people die from suicide, and that was in twenty nineteen. It's also estimated that only half of Americans who are experiencing some form of depression or anxiety ever seek treatment. But did you know that between eighty to ninety percent of people who do seek treatment for depression or anxiety find success by using therapist and or a medical intervention? Did you hear that like eighty to ninety percent feel better? An estimated quarter? Million People? Every year are survivors of suicide attempt. In previous years, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the world for people ages fifteen to twenty, four today, it's the number one leading cause of death. And although more females than males attempt suicide. represent. Seventy, nine percent. Of, all suicides in the United, states? Firearms being their most commonly used method and for females. The most commonly used method is overdose poison if you will. Now, let's talk about who is at greatest risk I. It is our LGBTQ plus community. There are three times, more likely special kids, three times more likely than straight kid to attempt suicide Oh nps if you have a sneaking suspicion that your kid might. Be Gay. Bi. Trans. Trust me just accept them and love them if you don't. They feel that. They know that don't assume your Keta straight is what I'm trying to say kids who worry about what their parents and society might think are three times more likely. To commit suicide forty-one percent of trans, adults that they've attempted suicide and the same study found that almost sixty one percent of trans people who were also victims of some form of assault sixty. One percent of those people have attempted suicide because get this lesbian gay and bisexual young adults who come from families where either the belief the notion, the sentiment was that they would be rejected because of their sexuality. Those kids are eight times more likely to commit suicide. Then, children who come from families where they feel very accepted. Each time and lgbtq person is of victim of any type of harassment or abuse that increases their risk of self harm by almost three hundred percent. Those are some of the most at risk populations, the elderly, also a very high risk population. What do I have delivered for I? Don't WANNA be a burden to my children. There's nothing for me to look forward to. Black talk about risk factors regardless of population demographic. The WanNa be on the lookout for these risk factors. Place people at a much higher likelihood of attempting suicide, any previous known or unknown or diagnosed mental disorder. Especially mood disorders, schizophrenia bipolar ast, which is autism spectrum disorder autism, any anxiety disorder, and certain personality disorders. Those who regularly use substances, like you know, drugs, alcohol painkillers, people who tend to be more impulsive or aggressive anyone with a history of trauma, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse people who are experiencing a major physical disability setback, chronic illness, those with a family history of suicide, those who have a close friend or relative committed suicide anyone who's in recent job or financial distress. Those, who recently lost a relationship at greater risk for suicide is anyone who's being isolated or who lacks their peers social support?
On a roll! Joey Chestnut sets hot dog world record
"You are building your perfect Fourth of July plate and you had two hot dogs on there. And if you throw 72 Mohr On your plate. You've got Joey Chestnut's Joe, just not hot dog eating record. I have goals, I guess to hit now. I don't know if I woke up this morning thinking that I was going to be in the seventies. But if I do consume 70 something hot dogs today, you better believe I will be letting the world know. Absolutely. Will you be a fool? Not to. It is a number and it is an athletic competition. And with that comes the opportunity to wager upon it. Let's bring in Doug Kazarian or ESPN betting expert joining us here on Darien Melon, ESPN radio and Doug, You know what I really admit. I haven't bet on the Nathan's hot dog eating contest before. How many different ways are there to do that today? Well, Randy, you should be embarrassed, but I should also be embarrassed that I can't remember the last July 4th. I have not been on a hot dog eating contest. So here we are. It's a staple in July 4th tradition is Traditional is AH, Apple pie right? There's different sort of thing, though. The female Joey custom if you will, just meaning the dominant force in the women's Circuit is Miki Sudo. She's like a tender, one favorite so minus 1000 chestnuts in the minus 1200 neighborhoods No 1 to 12 and Look they've dominated. But the big variable this year guys is so you can bet each of them to win or notes that would kind of take the field against each one. And then there's also over unders. You kind of mentioned Around 74. So it opened 71 a half was actually bet up a couple dogs. And we're seeing a little bit of under money, depending on the number. You're looking about 73 a half. And 73 is sort of the over under. And look, there's the variable this year of indoors, right? Chestnut has talked about how much you feed off the crowd. But if you remember guys just think about your own eating when you're outside and sweaty and stuff Not that pleasant, but you can probably do more damage indoors. But the hot dog dick holder, so that's the variable as well. So it's really unknown. Something like we've never seen no crowd. Different temperatures indoors, and that's sort of what everyone handicapping as we approach the top of the hour. Dawg, you mentioned this is something that you've done many years now betting on the hot dog eating contest. So my question to you as someone who has never based policed a bet in her life. At what point Do you start to think that Joey Chestnut might be falling off a little bit like he's been doing this for a while? I mean, is it? Is it something that you're just going to keep betting on him until He doesn't read proves you're wrong. Like at What point is he too old to be like? I'm gonna start taking the under on Joey now. Yeah, I know It's a great question because there's a some point he's going to get caught now. Actually, When I lived in Vegas, I covered a major league eating competition between him and Kobayashi. It was sort of the predecessor to test that, and he he talked to me about stuff. Yes, he takes like like what Marathon runners do before the marathon. They take painkillers before you could imagine you just roll out of bed and like Pearl down, trying to pound 72 hot dogs. You There's an art to this right. There's training. You expand your stomach. You talked about the belt of fat very so there's a lot of competition, but at some point your body You know, Father Time is undefeated as we all know from the great Charles Barkley. So at some point, these competitors are going to catch him. Now there is a guy sort of lurking in the neighbourhood. Darren Breeding is supposed to give him a run for his money. This year at some point member Kobayashi was Seemed untouchable and then chestnuts out of standards. They had eaten Maurine the sort of regionals and then they thought he could do it. But you know, there's I like the over if you can get a 72 or so, but the juice is getting up there. I think Minus 1000 on Miki Sudo is stay free money but pretty favorable. This is like she's going for the world record. She's like geared up for this. This is for Brian. This might be the last year chestnut. Just sort of a lock, so to speak, But I won't lay the $12 either. So I think that time has come When you win the money lines get that high. You're not going to make a lot of money laying that kind of lumber.
Are Some People Immune to Mosquitoes?
"And here in Georgia or getting our first mosquitoes of the year for me. That means I got a bunch of bytes when I ventured outside for a socially distant walk yesterday but are some people immune to mosquitoes brain stuff. It's Christian Sager. If you're like most people you hate mosquitoes. They're kind of the Andy Dick of the insect world annoying and in some cases dangerous. If we rate animals by the number of deaths they cause these little bloodsuckers top the charts by a wide margin and this is due to their transmission of malaria and other harmful diseases. And whether your next mosquito bite causes serious illness or intense frustration. We can all agree. Mosquitoes are just the worst. But are some people immune to mosquito bites I? Let's be clear mosquito. Bites aren't actually bites when a mosquito lands on you she uses her purpose it's a long double tube mouthpiece to Pierce your skin and get at the blood underneath and yes. That's a she every single mosquito that has ever been. You has been female. They bite you because they need a protein in your blood to develop their eggs when a mosquito uses her antenna to sense the warm blood beneath your skin and then pops her bosses in to tap your capillaries one of those tubes inject saliva. While the other one withdraws blood. The saliva contains enzymes that act as a Mild Painkiller and thins the blood to prevent. Clotting your body interprets these enzymes foreign invaders and produces histamine histamine binds to receptors in the bite area dilating local blood vessels this increased blood flow summons. More white blood cells. And when you get too much histamine the bite area can swell and redden creating what's called a wheel yeah wheel. That's the word of the day now. Each person will react to a bite. Differently and your allergies will vary so. What makes a mosquito choose a certain person? Well there are a number of factors one of the biggest being that there are more than three thousand known varieties of mosquitoes. And they're not all looking for the same thing for those that dig a nice sip of human blood smell body temperature. In genetics play huge roles. According to scientists at Rotterdam research each human body can produce anywhere from three hundred to four hundred distinct chemical odors. Some of which are bug magnets and others. They might be bug. Repellent research from a chemist named all. Rick Burke shows that mosquitoes are particularly fond of carbon dioxide. That's released from explanation and the skin and they also like lactic acid which present on our skin after exercise now drinking beer being pregnant and being a bigger person can all also make you more attractive to Mosquitos. Diet and blood type. Surprisingly don't seem to matter so much. Everybody has these yummy chemicals on their body. But it seems that the people mosquitoes avoid produce higher amounts of repellent chemicals Dr James Logan from Rotterdam set up a pretty weird experiment to see if he could find these all important. Repellent Chemicals is teams separated people into two groups MOSQUITO FAVORITES AND MOSQUITO MS. They put these folks in body size foil bags to collect their odors for two hours and they used a chromatograph to analyze the chemicals. They'd collected and hooked electrodes up to mosquito antenna to see what the bugs thought of each smell. They found about seven or eight made a difference. These odors were present insignificantly different quantities between those people who were attractive to Mosquitos and those who weren't their study published in the Journal of Medical. Entomology cited to chemicals as significantly repellent. One called six methyl five Heston to one which apparently smells of Nail Polish remover. And another called Jared Acetone which has a kind of floral odor as of this recording the race to use these and other chemicals as a new. Super Bug. Repellent is in full swing. So you probably know that. Bacteria is largely responsible for the various smells of the human body. Each human being is home to a unique mix of trillions of microbes. It's sort of like a fingerprint now. Our genes may play a large role. In determining what sort of microbial life forms we end up hosting in two thousand fifteen a team led by doctor. Manuela Fernandez grand untested the Herod ability of attractiveness to mosquitoes using twins. The twins would put a hand into either end of a sealed dome along with twenty female mosquitoes. Now don't worry. They weren't allowed to bite. Researchers gave each subject in attractiveness score compared to the other hand identical twins had consistently more similar scores compared to fraternal twins so genes do seem to play a role. This may be tough news for the twenty percent or so of people that mosquitoes find particularly attractive. If you're one of the local mosquitoes favorite dishes. Remember to keep some kind of bug repellent with you and to wear long sleeves and pants if the weather allows especially in areas of the world where these bugs carried diseases like malaria or dengue. And I suppose there's a little light at the end of this mosquito net tunnel here. Some people do have a chance of building up a tolerance after repeated mosquito bites but for others. The allergy just

"You just talk about that path and what you did previously and and how we got here today. Sir Super excited to share this with your listeners. They spend such a devout part of shaping the crypto ecosystem so. It's exciting to ship fan. But I began really as an experiential learner and in order for me to understand things I have to do them. There are auditory learners their visual learners in Connecticut. And I happened to be the last one so I really in order to understand how this world works at a throw myself into situations to understand them and one of the things that couldn't grasp was how the world works and I taking courses etc and always had something in the back of my head that I learned it. Was You know? Follow the money in history will teach you and so the best way to follow the money was to put yourself really in the middle of the largest flows in the world which was the foreign exchange markets and going onto a trading floor. And really witnessing what that was I read a book. Called Liar's poker in it changed my life so I mean that's that's the best way for me to understand how this world works is seeing really what people are identifying as news and what they're trading on and what swings. We're seeing in reaction and how they affect anybody else. So I got my start. On the Hong Kong trading floor at Morgan Stanley covering the onshore Asian currencies understanding that after the Asian financial crisis these countries had restrictions and limitations put on them to safeguard against potential attacks from others. So it was a very unique situation where my counterparts in. New York barely knew the difference between Malaysia System in Thailand system and yet I was super aware of those niche differences that opens and closes distinct their equities markets the the ability of having like an omnibus account versus having to do individual trades. There's another world out. There is really telling to why these economies are developing in certain way so I found it super fascinating and just enjoyed that case and the understanding a real pulse on how the world works but the world was changing so I during Dun Dun Dun during my time I witnessed it one of the jobs that I had was extremely manual. Had to move between a Bloomberg Terminal Reuters terminal and so no matter the automation that provided Skip that step and you just Kinda sat there. Frustrated blind like this is job security. They need me. I'm I'm the rotation of my My Body over here type this. There's something I can create mechanical. Do this for them but You just noticed that there were some frictions along the system. That really helped things back from going to the fully electronic funding we use the word electronic describing things this fast moving back then or now it's all digital so electronic trading was taking off the ability to put. Al Goes in the hands of your customer rather than facilitate a tea or time weighted average going through that on their own was something it was empowering your user or your customer really enjoyed being able to monitor and watch their activity. N- understood that they were getting the best price they weren't having a Middle Man. You know take things off based on how How they felt really And that that was something that we were seeing as a scaring factor on the sell side but an empowering factor when he thought about the market as a whole so I really pushed forward in dug into how electric trading and the fx platforms point be helping oftentimes told slowdown. This is ruining our enjoyable jobs as voice brokers to some extent so When I witnessed all that other Lucien I kept in the back of my head. Saying there's gotta be a better way. There's got to be faster way. I don't want any little girl to wake up and say today. I'm going to type on a Bloomberg terminal and rotate type on Reuters terminal and that's going to be why I went to school and why I continue to wake up every day. So the ability to automate that or make it moving away. Everyone can access. It was really exciting to me. So that's truthfully I think of it as I've been training for the Olympics. Those were the those were the early days that got me to say. I'm fired up about increasing the rates which we can offer institutional quality services down to the individual and streamline the whole process in itself. It boggles my mind. Three thousand people which is still small. That's the amount of sell side. Employees there are in exchange Three thousand people were dedicated to moving other people's money from one place another and ultimately that should come down further and further because moving money from you know pointed point being four axes. It's I don't know that the number of people actually changes is just the medium and the the forum through which these assets are changing hands is going to be different and it will continue to Also changed the Say there is like one person that is facilitating that trade for Hedge Fund. Then they're sixteen people dedicated to that one day. So you've got compliance. You've got your back office. You Bet your settlement team you. And if you can streamline those roles and provide alternatives for people we could have far more fulfilling in motivating experiences in life or for years and so I think there's a lot of those bottlenecks that our customers. They could be eliminated and really give people a sense environment. It's funny twenty. Fifteen was this era of blockchain. Not bitcoin right after crash and the pitch was basically about eliminating cost centers. That was the big thing that all the enterprise players got excited about an alone. Behold another entire market cycle passes in CRYPTO and. I think the reason that the public chains are so much faster aside from just the incumbents move slower by default is that twenty seventeen was all about. I can make a lot. More money with crypto. Right whether it's status you know trading whether it's market making whether it's you know creating an ICO and selling it and liquidating that is a much more compelling reason to adopt a new technology and finance than just we're gonNA limit costs right. It's like the vitamin versus painkiller. Headache get people addicted to like the the ICS drugs. There's a lot of bad things about that addiction. But you're starting to see some of the fruit born in kind of the next market cycle. Where did you come in full time to criticize? So I guess what were the exposure points that before you made the switch and what finally made you take the leap and enjoying ripple in Hong Kong. I'm twenty thirteen. Bitcoin was kind of something you bought on your p. a. just to watch is almost like a plant in your kind of like it's GonNa either grow or it's GonNa die. None of us really have too much skin in this worry about it and the other aspect of it was you were seeing in beginning to see a lot of activity taking place from these self-sided analysts in Hong Kong. One of them being Arner Hayes. It was a good buddy back when he's at Georgia And other people are taking notice so it was. It was triggering the minds of these trader types. Who Getting to see there's real value in what you mentioned the Arab the speculation The ability to to get behind this budding marketplace apply what we already knew from a larger perspective so I kind of had a cheat sheet in seeing the twelfth chapter of the book before the forward was written And so I kind of knew how the book would end in. It would only be a matter of. Did everyone knew that story. Conclusion when Up Story or did they WANNA milk it for a little while because a few of us weren't around in the eighties when markets were roaring. So I took that as an interesting thing but I really jumped in in the summer of two thousand seventeen. I was at Silicon Valley Bank catering. A lot of these texts that were beginning to use bitcoin. As a means of moving money between a places like vima non in wire those are some of the budding names that I was hearing about is like. I'm going to be on the upside of that. I want to be sitting here. Just asking them if they're hedging their effects when I could be helping them move this forward. So that's where I I saw I have linked for ripple and popped up. Asked exactly what I had in terms of my experience. Oftentimes you see something in you got. That's not really aligned. But I'm the one that knows that so I'm GonNa go for
Michaela Haas on Turning Bad Breaks into Breakthroughs
"Michaela. It is so great to have you on untangle today. Thank you so much for being here. Thanks for having me. I've been looking forward to this awesome so I loved your book bouncing forward. Yeah and the subtitle of the book is transforming bad. Breaks into breakthroughs and this just stirred up so much for me because so much of your work is about resilience and forgiveness and use the term post traumatic growth verses post traumatic stress for example. And I really WANNA help our our listeners. Understand why resilience is so important and why some of US fall apart while others of US thrive based on your stories exactly. That's really the question. That has intrigued me for a very very long time. And I as a journalist I meet a lot of people who've been through traumatic experiences and I always wondered why some people were able to deal with it better or heal from it. And even thrive while others fell apart so this question became deeply personal when I got severely ill in my twenties and I was actually bedridden for about eight months and it was pretty scary because the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me and if I would ever get better and I was Nodar Cillian and I did fall apart. So this really sparked the personal part of the journey to see well other people have been through things much worse than what I've experienced. So are there things I can learn to become more resilient? Are there things that I can use to nourish myself when I'm down and the book bouncing forward is really the result of this because I got to speak to? People Admire like Maya Angelou who actually gave the book it's titled. She talks about bouncing forward going. Beyond what the Naysayer said or people like temple grandin the autistic pioneer or a paralyzed surfer called Jesse Bill. Our and I asked them all the same questions. What helped you. How did you make it through? And in the course of this research I came across this amazing new science of Post Traumatic Growth. And of course everybody has heard of post traumatic stress but much to my surprise. I learned today is really a lot of information about how we cannot only heal from traumatic experiences and challenges but even use them to grow and so this is what really fascinates me and this is why I wrote bouncing forward to share this research with anybody who experiences challenges in life and who doesn't right. Doesn't I think you have a statistic in your book that eighty nine percent of US experience at least one traumatic event in our life and with post traumatic growth. Is there sort of a depth of experience or negative experience that you have that makes it almost impossible to come back or in your research? Have you found any differences between how bad experience actually is in how easy or hard it is to come back thing one of the things? I've most surprising is that it is not what happened to us. That determines how severe trauma is I've interviewed a chapter about. My friend Coco Schumann. Who WAS AN AUSCHWITZ? Maya Angelou was abused and raped as an eight year old. So I've come to understand that there is nothing that we cannot heal from now. Of course it doesn't mean that it doesn't leave scars and actually what determines if can heal from a trauma isn't so much what happens to us that how much support we get. How much incharge feel how much control they can take situation? How safe we feel how much we lost in very very much. Our mindset. 'cause. I'm I've been a practicing Buddhist for more than twenty years now and what actually got me into Buddhism was mine counters with Tibetan refugees in Asia. And they had traumatic life stories. They've often witnessed family members being killed or tortured or they've been in prison or they've been tortured and even when some psychologists were surprised to find that only one of nine hundred refugees they interviewed was diagnosed with Ptsd and all the others had found ways through that practice of compassion and meditation and Mindfulness to work through their pain and work through their suffering. And this is where I think the idea of post traumatic growth is so helpful because as soon as we can find any purpose in while we go through then we actually have a much much better chance of healing from it and this is something that no matter what our specific traumas children set. The fundamental question is not if we encounter suffering because we all do but how we work with suffering so that leads to awakening the hard in going beyond the habitual views and actions to perpetuate suffering. So this is really the core. A founding forward. Yeah it's a really. It's a complicated idea. I mean it seems simple on the one hand and complicated on the other because looking back at your story so your bedridden with an undetectable illness at the time for eight months. And you're struggling with that. Is it because you didn't have the tools yet to become more resilient or to accept this as an opportunity I mean? Is there any way to wall? Were inside the opportunity to look at the gift of that without getting too sort of Wu about that because these experiences are horrible. I met a few people who were able to do it on the spot but I think there are rare. Most people need at least a few years or several years too with some distance to look back and see it as a growing experience and I think one of the worst things you can say to somebody who's in the midst of it things like. Oh it's GonNa get better or who knows what it's good for people. Hey these phrases and that's really not what poster medic growth means and actually the only way we can grow as to allow struggle but one thing I can say that helped me and that I think helps anybody who's going through a tough time is mindfulness meditation. Because I think that we have no choice but to learn to stay present and running away as tempting as it is or drinking. The pain away or taking painkillers or whatever particular styles of avoiding it. It just never works. None of these methods works. So mindfulness meditation is now you so widely in the army and businesses in trauma therapy and I founded crucial now. I head already started meditating before I became ill but I had to realize that I was more like a good weather meditators. I use it to make myself feel good and I had to learn to go deeper with that and to stay present even when the going gets tough even when there is physical pain even when there is emotional pain to stay present and rushy Bernie glassman because also In bouncing forward is well if you think about it. We're always in the present moment anyway. We can't be anywhere else. It's just a matter of allowing ourselves to actually be there and be present with whatever happens. Of course it's a practice at work on for the rest of my life. Yeah I think we all will and I think a lot of people who have experienced trauma. Let's say yet in their lies. Don't really understand that. These practices that you cultivate pre trauma are going to be important for anything that you deal with in life. And how do you inspire people to really understand that these practices will be your if you will forgetting through things? Yes obviously you want to practice meditation or other. Resources full resilience. Ideally practice them when the sun is shining so that we have them at our disposal when the going gets tough and one of the things. I find most encouraging. Is that actually in the mindfulness tradition that I trained in we can use happiness and pain to transform ourselves to open a hard to become more compassionate rather than closing down to sharing was really going on. We don't have to wait for trauma to start but it's useful to prepare ourselves because most of us not only experienced one trauma in life but five to six actually and it's not just the war in Iraq that can be traumatic but a divorce can be traumatic and illness can be traumatic surgery. A car crash thinks that happened to pretty much all of us and I think if it was up to me resilience would be taught in schools. Mindfulness Meditation would be taught in schools because kids learn about it if they applied. They grow up so much stronger because resilience is like a muscle if we work at it. If we train in it then we become strong and we become more resilient and the earlier we start or if we have daily practice the more useful it will be to us when we do encounter a severe challenge or
Why Do We Get Brain Freeze?
"Headaches for a lot of reasons. Sometimes foods like chocolate cheese or cured meat can cause them other times it stress or maybe changes in our sleep habits headaches are also caused by strain sinus problems coughing and even sex. And if you're really unlucky there a sign of neurological problems. But do you know what causes headaches over one third of the population ice cream diabolical evil ice cream otherwise known as a brain freeze or a quote cold stimulus headache in more lofty circles. The ice cream headache only requires two things first. Something cold touching the roof of your mouth and second hot environment like a summer day or Asana or a yoga class full of sweaty people. That's where we all usually eat ice cream right. Brain freeze is caused by both a constriction and dilation of the blood vessels in your head. There's a nerve center just above your mouth and when it gets cold it signals the anterior cerebral artery to widen trying to heat your brain with warm blood. Since the skull is a closed structure. The sudden rush of blood could be increasing pressure which causes the pain. We feel it's kind of a horrible stabbing achey feeling but the warm air around you causes these blood vessels to restrict again relieving the pain about ten to twenty seconds after its onset. This experience is reportedly similar to a migraine headache albeit a very short one it's possible. The influx of blood is supposed to protect your brain from extreme cold. The pain is usually in the mid frontal area but it can be unilateral in other parts of the brain. But don't worry. Experts say that ice cream isn't going to give you brain damage or anything in fact when they're correcting aneurysms doctors sometimes low your brain temperature down to sixty four degrees. Fahrenheit or seventeen point eight degrees Celsius so ice cream. Ain't no thing. Except there's only one cure for brain freeze. Never eat ice cream again. No I'm just kidding in one article about these headaches. A researcher actually said ice cream. Abstinence is not indicated so keep eating all the ice cream you want but slow it down a bit there. Hawse try to eat in small bites and avoid the roof of your mouth also. You may be more likely to get brain freeze if you already get migraines. The science isn't confirmed on that but since the vascular response of ice cream headaches is similar to the experience of migraine sufferers they may be more vulnerable. Researchers are investigating this connection now in hopes of developing. Even better painkillers.
An Interview with WWE Legend Kurt Angle
"Incredibly pleased society. We've got joining us. Who never quite expected? That's phones on silent everyone. I never expected that we would have on. Tko wwe wrestling legend. Kurt Angle first of all. Thank you so much for for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me on. And let's see you're over here with them. WWe promoting the new bt sport. Yes exclusively in the UK for the two thousand and twenty busy day few. Yeah we started early morning and we're GONNA go out tonight we just have like a a gathering at bt. Not and. I think it ends at eleven o'clock but we started early morning and this is normal for for sports entertainers. Yeah do a lot of media so going a huge wrestling fan on A. You didn't have sky in your house. Yes so I was like an a young kid by Cole I was Afam. wrassling bottom was on the subway channels and I didn't have sky the watch it as much as other guys. Yeah but I was obviously a world of high beg ables. Did you know when you first joined. Because obviously in these this day and age social media the Internet you know how truly global the companies and how far you're reaches but were you aware in in the late ninety s just how many people were watching worldwide now. I I didn't watch wrestling. I didn't grow up watching it. I start watching it it would. I started so when I saw the company late ninety eight. That's when I started watching I do WanNa come on those days. But he's okay. You got quite like to find Natalie about your amateur wrestling career because as a professional sportsman. That's something that you were known for his part of your. WWe character but actually that was a huge part of your career and your life you were in a family of rest is your brother's arrest sits right yeah had four brothers. They all wrestled. They were all very successful. I was the youngest. Didn't really like wrestling. The START WITH I. I like team sports. I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood. It's a lot like this and There's no spring underneath It is self mutilation. You're you're basically beating that crap on yourself because you're allowing. I mean people were throwing around and take your head off with a clothesline and the object. You're bumping on his plywood so it was very abusive in the first day. I I didn't like it and I decided to hang in there. I came back the next day and I continued on. I got used to bumping and and used the pain so eventually didn't bother me as much but I'm paying for it. Now see a leg generation before ours. My Dad's generation. They would not really look favorably upon the tablet Ali. But what these guys do is take some serious stick their body. There's some serious injuries and stuff. It's you know your two weight world champion. And you've taken many punches to the head and body is is anyone WanNa taking a lifetime. What is what is pain to you guys? How do you manage pain? Do you ever get used to it as ever become less painful or do you just become used to living in that place. It's something you get used to. And as a young boxer I think Jimmy Moore. My trainer is spoke about this and said that you can tell from a very young age or someone hazard or not and it's normally a kids barn and if they take a punch annoys on they don't cry and they punch back it's like you can't make the Paean it's like I don't know what obviously adrenaline carries you through a lot of it but it's not like a real specific. If you punch me in the arm Ni- I would feel feel more pain than actually punching ahead fate strange sensation. It's not nice but it's very very hard up. Manassas gray but law detainees. I've not been able describe pain amateur wrestling pro wrestling. What are the worst kind of pain that you can describe? And how do you deal with those. I think the worst pain I had and I still have it now as an amateur wrestling right before the Olympics I got thrown on my head and I broke my neck and I didn't know it. I kept wrestling again that day. I ended up winning the US Open and that put me in a good position to make the Olympic team for the Olympic. Trials made me the top guy so I didn't have the Russell the mini tournament Face the winner of the mini tournament. I was the guy that the mini tournament faced. So Oh i I I couldn't get passed by any doctor doctor. Wood Passer would allow me to wrestle so I eventually found a doctor and and he said the only thing you can do. You can't train you just would just stick in a neck with Nova game and you won't feel the pain. And he was right every match. I had at the trials and the Olympics. I got twelve shots. Novacaine the back of my neck couldn't feel it for about an hour and Russell and then an hour later I'd be in a lot of pain. You won the Olympic Games uh-huh with a broken neck that's insane quotes and wwe also. Yeah yeah I broke both my hands. The last vote doesn't ideal and it wasn't wasn't nice but it's hard to imagine when the pinnacle of Your Sport Olympic Games to be competing against the top guys in the world with a broken neck does that. I can't imagine boxing. We're broken hand. We are called you a few weeks ago and you said this is the most pain I think I've ever been in the radon especially she'll have a little bit of bone removed from the right time but there there was a a tendon that had ripped and it needed stitch together without that Han was give me more than than the left hand which has seven unscrews and appropriate and at night. He's but just because it had to have some work done the Tandon It was It wasn't wasn't nice. I WanNa ask you a question. Did you know ahead had a time that you're gonNA be suffering after your career from the injuries. Would you go back and when you do it all over again I we do it all over again because obviously enjoyed every bit of my career. I've been very successful more successful than I probably would have imagined. I've been lucky enough that my injuries alot. My last night I broke Mahan but previous my husband really suffered injuries but I would one hundred percent hop gum heart do it all over again. What about you? I don't know I mean I'm I'm hurting pretty badly my knees my back my neck. Sometimes I think about you know what when I go back my quality of life right now socks so I do have a lot of suffering. I had a painkiller addiction overcame about six years ago and you know stay clean and struggle. In the way I have been very difficult. was there a lot of pressure even when you had injuries week in week out to go and perform Tom. Did you ever feel that. You couldn't say no part of the problem no I I. Nobody ever forced me to do anything. There are a lot of times. I had a a great doctor that you gave me off had three neck surgeries and he was very easy to manipulate. So you know when I broke my neck and I had surgery I would talk him into clear Amina go back early and At the time he didn't have their wellness policy L. A. C. set where they had their doctor clear. You we go to our own doctor and I was able to do that a couple of times where I should have. I've been back and I did so I broke my neck four more times and WWF and It caused me to go into a downward spiral painkiller. Alert addiction in just almost room my life so it was. It was very difficult. Can I just say you have one of the strongest biggest looking knocks. Have you seen as well. Yeah Rick out again. Yeah wow so. How many times are you performing when when you when you arrested him? Mm to twice a week. You'll be performing five days a week. You for forming five

All About Endorphins
"People have been told in the past. That exercise been said to be an aid. Finale everything from depression. Obesity helps reduce stress helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. And so on. But what is really going on in our bodies that gives us this empowering feeling so of course helps that it could be due to the fight that we've gone out and progress towards health and fitness goal. Is that sense of pride against all odds more so than that is due to the release of endorphins so in Dolphins on Anura Chemicals. which get their name from? The word indulgence. Which you've heard before which means coming from within the body and morphine? Which is an opiate pain reliever On Dolphins got the name because they are not true pain relievers. They Act has John. Jesus like pain relievers. So dolphins consists of a large group of peptides the produced by the central nervous system and the pressure tree land so since dolphins act on the opiate receptors. Not Brains they reduce pain and boost pleasure. which results in a feeling of well big saw she happens is the endorphins are released. In response to brain chemicals Kohl's neurotransmitters is and the neuron receptors that dolphins bind to are the same ones certain kinds of medicines by two as well and dolphins. Aw as I said the painkillers produced in response to physical discomfort. The improved self esteem that we do feel otherwise known. As runner's high is a result Zolt of these endorphins being released so it wasn't actually until two thousand eight that measuring endorphins in humans was actually possible because we ain't got some new imaging technology becoming available so researchers used positron emission tomography or pet scans to view at brain in both before and after exercise. And after doing this they found the increase in the release of endorphins after exercise. And that's why it's medical medical professionals prescribe regular exercise as a treatment for mild to moderate depression and anxiety because exercise boosts your mood a Walston endorphins. Get all the attention. You'll body also pumps out and the kind of annoyed switch. All a naturally synthesized version of THC. which is the chemical responsible for the feeling that marijuana produces and the most examine that new? Talamante produced in the body is known as Anandamide and this is believed to it. Creates a feeling of calmness. Jim Research is actually found. That's the end of cannabinoid system could be involved in the runner's high because they observed that's endorphins com pass rooted the blood brain barrier whilst the lipid soluble end cannabinoid found at high levels in people's blood off the running so they can travel from the blood into the brain where it can trigger a high. And what's interesting is that Celia Hillard who has HD director of the Neuroscience Research Center. The Medical College of Wisconsin has found that people need eight hours of sleep for optimal ended kind of annoyed production. So this gesture. Although there's no scientific proof a morning homerun is more likely to produce a runner's high than an evening or after noon runs I didn't want endorphins to get all the glory about why we feel so great author director cise. This is of course after we recovered breath back from whatever exercise. It may be a new kind of annoyed. Also have a part in this as well. They're still trying to evaluate wait now which has more of an impact. But hopefully that's given you some science behind wiig sizing can make you feel great. Not only my feeling of pride you've got you've gone out and Don some workouts despite your busy schedule but also because of the neurochemical was ended kind of annoys that are being released as
U.S. prosecutors open criminal probe of opioid makers, distributors
"The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Federal Prosecutors I have launched a criminal probe of opioid makers and distributors. The investigation aims to decide whether pharmaceutical companies intentionally allowed OPIOID painkillers to flood communities. This sort of criminal investigation is usually reserved for drug dealers and cartels so this is pretty major. If the investigation results in criminal charges it could be the biggest prosecution of drug companies. He's that have allegedly contributed to the OPIOID epidemic Akilah. What are the companies that are involved in this? And how far has this investigation gone already. Yeah so six. Companies have confirmed in in regulatory filings that they received a grand jury subpoenas from the US Attorney's office in the Eastern District of New York. There's probably more but we do know about Johnson Johnson. TV If a pharmaceutical industries and mckesson Corp Ammiel Pharmaceuticals Mellon crowd and resources. Bergen Corp they have better. Yeah without headed out. This is a criminal investigation instead of a civil one on the show. We've talked about the big civil case involving Purdue Pharma Company paid a two hundred seventy million dollar settlement and its legal battle against Oklahoma Tiba also agreed to pay that state eighty five million now shortly after those settlements Purdue Pharma filed for chapter eleven bankruptcy. What makes this case different than all those other ones? So according to legal experts that the Wall Street Journal spoke with criminal charges require prosecutors to prove an effort to willfully fully end intentionally avoid requirements like reporting signs. You know like suspicious orders. For example that could indicate the drugs were being used for non medical purposes under the controlled Substances Act whereas civil charges can be brought to executives and companies for failing to report those signs passively in other words. The attorneys Ernie's general have to prove these companies intentionally hid the red flags about how the drugs are being distributed and misuse and communities across the country Earlier this year when federal federal prosecutors filed similar but smaller criminal cases in Manhattan and Ohio against a pharmaceutical distributor and a couple of executives Manhattan. US Attorney Jeffrey Berman Said said quote executives of a pharmaceutical distributor and the distributor itself have been charged with drug trafficking wild. Yeah wow so. This is a big deal. And it's part of a movement towards reparations for communities that have dealt with this opioid crisis but what comes next question to your point about this being moved towards repairing what's been lost more than four hundred thousand Americans have died from overdoses from legal and illegal opioid since one thousand nine nine. That number comes from the some federal statistics six so obviously millions of dollars won't be enough ray. Several of the companies being investigated have already tried to reach settlements in the forty eight billion dollar range but if the ninety settlements from big tobacco or any kind of indication we should be looking in the hundreds of billions of dollars range much of the money one against big tobacco unfortunately went into budget gaps in different states rather than to you know rehabilitation and crisis services. So there's a lot to pay attention to with the money. How much of it is coming? And where exactly exactly the funds will go at the end of all of

"Well, I mean, you do sometimes hear about alcohol is the way to Dolor numb pain, especially in country music, and since we've already is dollars. That's basically what painkillers do I guess it does make sense. Of course, if you were to regularly use alcohol for pin measurement you'd run into similar long term problems as with end saids or as medicine. Absolutely. I mean, it's an interesting study, and it might be good to know and a pinch. But I doubt any medical professional would actually recommend drinking as a way to treat chronic pain. And I'm pretty sure that we should. Not go on the record is suggesting that we're not suggesting that but tell me what the study said. All right. So researchers at the university of Greenwich in London, they gathered volunteers for a study on pain and alcohol, and they found that the participants reported a reduced sensitivity to pain with every drink consumed. And this is actually the interesting like the effect was cumulative. So after three drinks for men and two for women. The participants pain thresholds rose from small to moderate slash large. According to the researchers this pain relieving effect on alcohol on pain intensity is comparable to opioids and actually more powerful than acetaminophen. Wow. So do know why? That's the case. They really don't know. Exactly why. I mean, the researchers suggested that the alcohol may block the transmission of pain signals to the spinal cord, but alcohols, anxiety relieving properties. Could also be a part of this as well. But either way it's a little dangerous that alcohol is as effective as it is in relieving pain. I mean swapping chronic pain for alcohol abuse, isn't exactly. Trading up, right? And that potential to create a whole new problem is one of the biggest dangers with self medicating. But you know, amazingly, we're not even the only animals to try this. I found a few examples of other species that take their health into their own paws. But before I tell you about that, why don't we take a quick break. Most serial killers. Don't make any effort to involve the media or best Gators. They're very secretive. They don't want to tension. They almost want their crimes to go notice. But the idea of committing a crime, and then calling the police and bragging about it. That's a whole 'nother level of terror. Dear editor, this is only speaking you.

"In their painkiller of choice and with over the counter pain relievers accounting for over five billion in sales last year. That's a big chunk of the population that Medicare was something they really don't know that much about. So for today's episode Russia going to shine some light on the little known facts behind a few of the world's most commonly taken. But least understood medications so we'll try to get an idea of where they come from. And what they're best suited for as well as what the future of pain management might look like art mega. So where do you think we should start? So I mean, this might sound a little basic, but I thought it'd be helpful to start with a quick refresher on what pain really is. And how a non prescription painkiller actually works to relieve it. So for the first part of that pain is really just this early warning system. It's our bodies way of letting us know that we're injured or even that we're. Doing something that we probably should stop doing. So for instance, if you put your hand on the hot stove special nerve receptors in your skin will respond to the damage from the heat, and that sensation is then sent as a chemical message to the spinal cord and your brain stem, and from there, the message travels to the brain, which is where the sensation is registered, and processed and finally perceived as pain, that's a helpful description. But it is kind of weird to take a step back and think about it like it almost makes it sound kind of bureaucratic. His pain is this memo. That's gotta be passed around from office. The office got to get everybody's approval. And then it finally gets to the big boss upstairs. You know? Right. So it obviously takes more time to describe the experience and feeling the pain that actually does to feel it which is pretty much instantaneous. But it's still helpful to know the ins and outs of the process because that's how painkillers work like they interfere with the body's transmissions pain signals. And this is where the difference between painkillers comes into because each kind targets the different point in the communication chain. So for example, aspirin ibuprofen are end saids, and that's NSA ID which stands for a non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. These medications cut off the pain signals at the site of the injury. But something like a seat of medicine, which is a different kind of pain reliever. Works much differently. All right. We'll obviously get to them. Why don't we stick to the end sets for now? So how does one of these run interference on these pain signals? Sure. So when the nerve receptors and ourselves. Damage they produce chemicals that perform a variety of functions. Right. Some lower the pain threshold and the injured cells to make sure we got the message others, produce, inflammation, and swelling as a way to cushion the cells from further injury, art. So these chemicals must be what the end sets are targeting right since they're anti inflammatories. Right. So an and said like aspirin works by halting, the production of the chemicals responsible for the pain and swelling and the aspirin binds with the enzymes that produce these chemicals, which basically neutralizes, the enzymes and prevents the chemicals from being made at all. Oh, wow. That's interesting. All right. So the damage that prompted the pain is still there, but we no longer perceive the pain is that what's going on exactly so painkillers don't actually heal injuries. And they don't even kill the pain. Really? They just kill your awareness of pain by cutting off that signal out the source that sounds pretty deep. So the pain is still there. We just don't feel the pain, and we'll speak in the pain awareness. How how does an inset nowhere to go?.
