Hartman Welcome to the second hour of our program. On the line with us is our old buddy Phil Itner, the veteran war correspondent based in Kyiv, Ukraine. Today, I believe in this story. Thanks for watching. The video blog over there. It's really great. You need to check it out. All you need is his name. It's spelled, it's Philip Itner, P -H -I -L -I -P I -T -T -N -E -R. Itner Philip, by the way, is his Twitter slash X handle. Itner Philip, I -T -T -N -E -R P -H I -I -P. -L Phil, welcome back to the program. I am hearing drones, drones, drones. What's going on over there? Well, it seems to be that the Ukrainians have really put it to the Russians with just waves and waves of drones hitting as far away as approximately 400 miles as the crow flies, but much further if you take into account territorial integrity of Belarus and the Baltic states, because what the Ukrainians have managed to do is strike an airfield out of a town called Pskov, which is really more near St. Petersburg than it is near Moscow, and they struck these what called are heavy movers, these large cargo planes, Ilyushin 76s, and these are the things that move around artillery, armor, this kind of heavy, heavy equipment that the Russians use to move around their nation. vast We use a similar aircraft, that would be our C7, but we tend to do that on transatlantic flights, but these are planes that are approximately at least $20 -30 million, and they're damaging them, almost to the point of destroying them with drones that cost approximately around $20 ,000, so you do the math, and the Russians are furious. Yeah, now are they launching these out of, is this 400 miles from the Ukrainian border, and are they being launched out of Ukraine? Well, it's 400 miles, As I say, it's 400 miles as the crow flies, but a straight line from the Ukrainian border to Pskov, would fly you over Belarus, or yes, the the of possibility something being launched from the Baltics, now that opens up a whole can of worms, and it's not confirmed, there's a lot of Russian speculation and accusations being flung at the the Baltics, but the Ukrainians, in a very weird, not weird, but in a very unusual turn, have actually openly said that no, this is a new technology that we're using, Zelensky himself saying these are Ukrainian developed in Ukraine for long -range strikes into the depths of Russia, where they don't think they can be hit, like this airfield outside of Pskov. If it turns out, however, that they were launched from the Baltics, we're in a whole new phase of things, because even if Baltic the states, if territory was used without their direct knowledge, still that's going to be a big, big issue with Moscow. So until it's proven by the Russians, the Ukrainians are continuing to say, no, it was us. Again, unusual for them to outright say that they did it, but it does mean that they're going to take the fight to Russian territory, the Russian homeland, with these drones that can strike farther into the Russian the aren't Russians happy and they're responding. The Baltic states being Estonia, Latvia, and Slovenia. And NATO member states. Yeah, actually. And if Russia was retaliate, to then boom, we would be in something really serious. That's article five immediately and we're in a whole different situation. That's correct. Wow. Amazing. So yeah, these drones. So, so you're suggesting that a drone traveled more than 400 miles from Ukraine into Russia to blow something up. If it blew something up, it had to be carrying a fairly heavy payload. 400 miles is a hell of a long distance to travel on, on, on what, a NiCad battery? I mean, these, are are these fossil fuel powered or are they electric? Also, I mean, you know, how did they not get spotted? Is it, is it that the drones are better than missiles because they don't leave a heat signature? Well, they fly, they fly at lower elevation. You're right. They don't have quite the heat pattern that a missile would have or an aircraft, a proper sized aircraft would, obviously. You know, I say that it is 400 miles, but again, it's Tom, 400 miles as the crow flies. So you're, you're entering into, if it is to be believed that they flew directly those 400 miles, then they're entering into Belarusian airspace and then exiting Belarusian airspace into Russian airspace and then attacking Pskov. Alternatively, what you're looking at is the the drones flying around Belarusian airspace, all the while in Russian airspace and then, you know, and then striking at Pskov, which would mean it would be more like 500 or even 600 miles. Isn't there another option? Isn't there another option that these drones actually were launched from within Russia by Russian partisans who are Ukraine - Entirely possible. Entirely possible also entirely possible to be launched off to some sort of sea platform in the Baltic Sea, which would be international waters. So you could do that as well. But here's the important thing, Tom, before we go into speculation, and this is also Russian speculation, because they can't accept, they can't stomach the idea that the Ukrainians are becoming incredibly at adept what it is that they're able to do with these drones. They are at the forefront of drone technology at this point. They are innovative, they are doing all sorts of, I mean, they have a, in essence, a cardboard drone that they have developed, which of course can't be picked up by radar or any kind of intercepting signaling. So the Ukrainians are developing these things, and while they're able to infiltrate Russian airspace and strike deep into Russia, what we seen have seen by the

"Hello. This is new. It feels all different. I don't know if I like it. Yeah, I'm not sure I signed up for this. I mean, this is an extra day, right? That's all I'm saying. Okay. We'll be sending in an invoice. That's all I'm saying. Well, this will be interesting. You've been sending an invoice. Okay, well, I'll look forward to that because then we'll have to teach you how to use Microsoft Word. I guess some kind of email client. You know what? Forget it. It's too much. No, look, we came back on today because we got an email from Wayne who sent in a message to us about our conversation on echolocation and mobility. And it's fair to say this is a rather long email. Now Wayne himself suggests you know what, you know what's long when even the person who writes that says get a cup of coffee, this is going to be a long one. So we didn't want to dismiss the email or try and cut the email down. I don't like doing that if I don't need to. And we do have the joy of having the podcast here. So we are able to put this out as a separate, but it does allow you to hear the email in full. So shall we sit back and listen to the email in his comments? Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Okay, as always, Laura reads our email. Hello again, that's just following up on my previous contribution to the echolocation debate. Laura, if you're reading this, could you put on your Gandalf voice because we're going into the land of magic and helping Bilbo baggins, AKA Sean, with getting the idea of how to learn active echolocation principles in practice. The bad news is that it's likely to be quite long given the topics talked about in previous episodes, so grab a cup of horlicks and get ready for a bedtime story. I do hope you feel able to read the full message because I do think there are some important issues for us to debate as a community. You weren't around Sean when I mentioned flash sonar echolocation ideas as alternatives to long cane or guide dog mobility approaches. For clarity, I had meant using flash sonar echolocation techniques with long cane rather than flash sonar on its own, although I have heard some of the kids have been able to play integrated football with sighted kids with just flash sonar skills. That's not me though. As a beginning, I would say we are quite similar in some ways Sean. I have retinitis pigmentosa, and I think I'm a couple of years older than you. I had full daytime vision more or less with reduced night vision when I started out. As I grew older into my teens, 20s and 30s, my vision worsened into progressive field loss and night blindness. And on to now, where I have perception of light with bleaching episodes, I have no detail vision at all. Throughout this change, I had to self conscious feelings that we all have when we first look at using a cane and publicly disclosing that we are blind or partially sighted. I started out by only taking it out from my pocket when going to work in the mornings in a quiet area, passing through trees and green areas, only past maybe three or four other people then, but it helped with acclimatization.

"You have damage in different parts of your body. One area is less damage than others. So that area that's got less cells damaged, George degenerating or dying, you know is gonna be repaired sooner. And another area that's got more cells. Damage is going to take longer before it gets too. At that point where you see Wow, I see a significant change. So you know, nothing really happens overnight. Do sponsors. If you get a response. Does it tend to last indefinitely or does it last well that you can see pretty clearly by people that have done stem cells for most things? Where they have never done a second procedure. And they haven't okay procedure, but We have patients, probably a dozen or two of them that I've had Alzheimer's M S. Parkinson's that did the first treatment intravenous and nasal. And they did well, 60 70% sometimes more benefit. On within a year to they want to do it again because they wanted to see how much more of a result they can get. So it's all about watching to see your body improve and subtle ways and dramatic ways. But for example, we've never done a second idea of diabetic patient. All the type two diabetics. Have changed so significantly, that they haven't done it again. Same thing with most of the joints. So It depends upon the severity of the disorder or how many cells are damaged when we're you know, learning about the patient, there's no blood test that can see you have Half a million cells damaged in your knee or ah billion cells damaged in your brain. The more damage there is, the longer it might take. But we're all timers. It Z Relatively. I don't know. Percentage wise or what? That you've no percentage wise. We could say, Oh, here is a percentage. You know, The idea is that as you do, the treatment on a person starts to gain their activities of daily function back and their memory and focus and proves there is a video of a patient on the website. Who had foot drop and he's His video is in the third column. Third video and he could barely walk because the foot drop was a neurological issue occurring from his brain and he couldn't remember anything that his son was telling him so As his son would ask him to remember a name or a phone number or an item. He couldn't do it after the stem cells within about a week. He remembered the three words that the sun had given him for that morning. Remembered. Another three words. This is a test we do for patients that have dementia. So you ask three non connected words. It could be tired Bird. And wedding ring. And you tell him to try to think of it. Remember, it is repeated in their mind as much as they can. If you ask him in five minutes, they can't get it. Obviously. Their their brain is not working well, so if in five minutes they remembered and remember in an hour they remember by the end of the day. That's great. So that kind of improvement. It's just a simple way to see how well a person is doing. And then by the end of the third week, the gentleman was remembering all the numbers of every day of that names or items of every day of that week, So we've seen that sort of result so again. We don't say that everybody has the same results you know, day to day, but You want to be able to watch and see and capture those improvements. So we can document that. Right, right. I guess it's it's the fact that if somebody's not right around the corner, and it's a Uh, it's a big well, they're a lot of factors. Of course there. Of course there a lot of factors. Most doctors don't want to take the time and expense to learn how to do this number one so you don't have a doctor, every corner doing and all there should be But yeah, So That's why we put videos on the Web site articles in the website. We tell people to go look at Google Scholar, you know, look at all this information because there are millions and millions of studies on stem cell therapy. And its effectiveness. So if this is not something that's been around for a week or a month Literature goes back over 100 years. Google scholar. Google scholar has lots of great articles. That's where I go to look at all the different things like stem cell therapy for stroke stem cell therapy for retinitis pigmentosa, You know, stem cell therapy for this for that. I mean, You know? It's biblical scholar. Okay, Google scholars. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for the call by now. Bye bye. Okay.

I still have excruciating pain. I had a rash, but I didn't get the blisters or anything. And now the rash is fading. But I'm concerned that the pain is still there. And then they say, there can be as a side effect or whatever that the pain can linger for months, poster petting neuralgia. What we've seen. And if you look at the nutritional editor and I look at it, as I say, Google scholar, you could look up intravenous vitamin C therapy, and there are 327,000 studies.
