"This is Sam Fan. Crackdown senior producer and We're we'RE GONNA be talking about the new clinical guidelines the new policy here in BC. Basically all show but first of all garth. I think we should start out by just giving people an impression of how fucking grim things are here right now. So what is what? What have the past couple of weeks look like from your point of view? Yes it's bad Overdoses our backup. They were declining bit. But they're back into as bad as they've been really for the last couple of years a harm reduction services and overdose. Prevention sites are closing in the neighborhood or they're operating at a diminished capacity. People can't social distance you know. There's there's a lot of Crowded living conditions and a lot of people. Just don't have housing so people can't put that distance between themselves. I was through the neighborhood yesterday. People were still crowded on the sidewalks and everything and last week we were able to confirm the first person who tested positive for Cova nineteen in the neighborhood so one can only assume that combination of things is is pretty bad and the other. Obviously the really really big part of this is that we keep hearing press conferences from the city that there's going to be some kind of housing option for people who are homeless or who live in a shelter. Sro and aren't able to physically distance right but we haven't. We're not seeing like any any sort of like bold action. Take place there right We we haven't heard anything like that like Vancouver. Coastal health is told people to keep their physical distance. But we're still waiting on some kind of housing option and then finally Everyone's worried about the drug supply running out so there's already been kind of reports of shortages We've heard about prices going up but you know with all the borders and everything closed It's gotta be disrupting illegal. Drugs supply the first person I thought to call was Simona Marsh on crackdowns editorial board. She's also on the board of the Vancouver Area Network of drug users but she understands a lot about sort of the supply and distribution side of the illegal market so I called her up while she was actually working at the front desk. Advan do and good. How's it going? I'm good. How are you good So you can talk to me for a few minutes. So you're talking to us through a mask right anyway little bit but you sound good to me and so you're you're behind the desk there. Advani when people are just in the room there. What's it like there is it? Is it very crowded? Is it normal? What's going on? Yeah more than usual. Yeah because it's really up to you and other places that are opening night so our people keeping you know six feet apart from each other as vca has has told us all to do. I'm not sure how Iraq here we're GONNA have a meeting about it. Yeah and part of Your Job. Sitting at that desk is now to give out harm. Reduction supplies like people can't help themselves anymore right correct. Are you worried about running out of anything? I yeah and if you run out of pipes that means people share pipes and pipes are you can transmit cove in one thousand nine on pipes. That's right I mean not only that like down here. We're dealing with both an could still having this right and you and me were texting a couple days ago and you were saying you were worried about the illicit drug supply. What's going on with that? I'm powder devils like crazy so wait explained that you mean like to get coke is now twice as expensive. Yeah the prices went. I guess not twice as expensive. They run up. So what was it before? Like four hundred three a quarter now by fifty. Three quarters ZIP right. I've never bought in quantity before. What does that? I'm I'm small time? Simona Ground Look. I've never been to really. I don't go shopping at whole foods either or like Costco like I. Don't get a jar of mayonnaise that six feet tall and I'm just like a simple one time guy so because I know you kind of have special knowledge and all this because you have as delicately put it on this show you have helped alligator. Could you say that again agricole subsidies navigator right so? But you've been in this game for a long time. What do you think's going to happen in the next couple of weeks to the supply route borders to being shut? And it's well I can see a lot of people they don't want to sell it because they don't know next one night closed so I don't think it's GonNa be did well. Let's keep in touch about how things are going with the with the drug supply. I'm just I'm interested to see what goes on and I'm kind of worried for everybody. Who relies on it so much? You know I'm worried about them like making shit going down right right. Hopefully not okay. We'll can stay safe if you can do. Ok Tedi by so Simona tells us that coke prices are up and I talked to crackdown DETTORI board. Member Jeff Loudon yesterday. And what he's seeing is a fifty percent increase in the price of down. So you know from forty dollars a quarter now. Seems like it's going for sixty quarter at least where he is. And then you know we've heard from Laura that her connections are telling her Get Ready Droughts are coming better stockpile and there's also some reports of stimulants being harder to come by right now right. So it's it's patchy and it's it's hard to get an overall picture. It always is. But you can really see the jitters now. I guess all of this begs the question of what what it is. We should be doing right now. What would help Keep people safe. I mean it's safe supply. You know I know I know we say that a lot but it's true in in nineteen but it's also been true for the whole overdose crisis and in fact I I heard about it in the last over those crisis so in Vancouver there was overdose crisis and HIV crisis in the nineties. So you actually. You sent me a poster and this is from. Is this from the event that you would have? Is this a rally or something The posters from a meeting that we put together in the summer of Nineteen Ninety Eight. You know there was a like a lot of overdoses. A lot of overdose deaths being projected For the next year and so we were having a meeting about what we can do about this. What we were saying is let's legalize and decriminalize heroin And so the poster is of a fist holding a needle with a circle of chain going around you. You drew this and then stuck in your head right so when you wanted to make the crackdown through it. Again to be the logo the show. That's right yeah and I know you know. At that time I was really new to all this is just trying to stay ahead of my dope cygnus from the day to day so yeah. I was at the meeting. I made the poster but Dean Wilson was really involved in this stuff back then and it was just around that time. He started advocating for the same thing. So I called up Dean Wilson. He's on our editorial board and he's been an activist in this town for a couple of decades everybody. Yep Yep all right. Cool he Thanks thanks for making a little time. How you doing man? Oh I'm all right I'm just I'm kind of tired today just It was good. I saw my son. And Um it's good to see people you love and that you know what I mean. 'cause we're all kind of estranged even though we all live in the same city you know what? I mean right so and so did you guys stay like six feet apart or did you manage that. I gave a big hug and that was close. Then that it was all there was it. Was you know both kept their heads? You know what I mean. It's just you know it was whether it was and if I get the shit because I gave my son a hug well too bad I guess you gotTa do you gotTa do. Yeah Yeah we both needed it so that was all there was to. Do you remember the first time you raise the idea of safe? Supply with somebody Other than another drug user. Actually it was all part of the original insights stuff in our version before it opened up Professionally and like legitimately. We wanted to give drugs out at the place. So what did you call it before before the term safe supply? How did you refer to it like just like we should give out heroin for prescription heroin or well? We always viewed it as a a medical supply of drugs for Addiction. Not for pain not for nothing else. But for addiction we could go to doctors. They would give us a a prescription and you know we always thought it'd be a lot like mastodon well. We went and picked up every day or at salons every day and went home

I've actually chosen three. That are my favorites now again. There's a ton of different oils. That will help and that we will love. These are three of my favorites.

I will rub my hands together and I'll just do a nice little tent. Be over the nose and it takes three big inhalations in what this is going to do. Is it's going to help to open up and support the airways another thing that I like to do is I like to take the remainder of the oil. That's on my hands. I like to rub it on the back of my neck and onto my shoulders because what that's doing is actually going to give this nice beautiful sensation and so I find that to be very invigorating. It's very energizing. And just you know when you're hitting that wall in the middle of the day and you're just needing something to help pick you up. Grab your peppermint oil. You'll be surprised how well this works. And how great this feels and just is a really feel good oil and again just a couple nice. Big inhalations is a great way to use your peppermint oil also. Great in the diffuser as well. Now I said my second I have three oils but actually my second one. I'm kind of classified as my citrus oils because citrus oils are very uplifting. Now do I have a one specific citrus oil that I love? It's hard to say because there's so many good ones I love wild orange I love lemon grapefruit citrus bliss so anything citrusy is very uplifting. It's very energizing. It's feel good so if you come to my house you will find diffusers. In every single room and in those diffusers you will typically find a citrus oil diffusing now what I love about citrus oils. Is that it blends well with pretty much anything and everything. So you can add some some floral to it if you want so your you know your drain. Yam or your Lang Lang or you could do something more. Mid To experiment or peppermint or something herbal. So I love things like Rosemary which is also really nice. And the diffuser as well so again using your your citrus oils to help. Energize you Is a great way to to help give you that little bit of boost of energy throughout your day again you can do a drop into your hands and again the ten teepee couple big inhalations and you can also apply to. Paul's point so the risks behind the ears Those are also great ways to use citrus oils. Also I know that. A lot of people love aromatherapy jewelry. So you can buy necklaces. And bracelets with the aromatherapy jewelry that have eleven beads or have felt beads so that you can apply oils and just kind of smell throughout the day My third favourite oil is actually blend so. Tara has some incredible blends and one of my favorite blends to help. Give me energy through. My Day is motivate if you have not tried this oil yet. I highly suggest that you do it. Such an uplifting feel-good oil. It again has pepper minute. Has Clementines has got peppermint got some citrus oils in there it also has coriander Basil Melissa Rosemary and a little bit of Vanilla. So it's very minty fresh clean smell and I use it the same way that I use my government and I use it the same way he's my citrus oils. Whether I Do a nice little tent and have a Nice Cup a nice couple big inhalations in or I put it in my diffuser. I apply it to my pulse points or put it on my jewelry. These are the ways that I loved oils air medically because when we breathe in natural aromatic compound is going through the olfactory the nose and it's hitting our limbic system in the brain which controls a lot of different things in the body and it's a great way to use oils to help support our moves in to help to support our feeling another incredible product that you can try to help to increase energy throughout your day is meadow to Max now. I'm not sure if you guys have tried this product yet but it's probably one of my favorites especially when it comes to a balanced stable energy. Alright so this is not energy stamina complex it. Has Things like Ginseng. Which is a natural energy boost? So it doesn't have things that are like harmful stimulants or caffeine. So you're not going to experience a crash. What this does is it actually delivers. Atp Andrea Cells. So it's actually enhancing might Oke Andrea function and again you're going to be delivered a solid stable balanced energy throat. You're so if you haven't yet tried this. It's an awesome product to try out like I said one of my favorites I typically like to use it in the morning Prior to my workout and again I like to get things done in the morning between six. Am and noon. And that's typically what. I like to use this product just to give that balanced table energy throat my day now again as we're talking about energy. I think it's important to know that there are many things in our life that contribute to what causes us to experience energy right. So it's not just grab your peppermint or grab your your oils. Which are great. They will help their great tools that we can put an tool belt for for emergencies and for things like that but we also want to look at our lifestyle right. Are we sleeping properly. Are we getting the right amount? Might amount of hours of sleep. Are we eating? The right. Diet are as neutral as our nutrition up to par right. Are we getting enough movement in into our daily into our day as well right? Are we moving our bodies are we? Are we exercising? And so I want you to really look at these areas can take a look like. Are there things that you can improve when it comes to sleep? I mean I I love having a good sleep routine in place right and I love a good bedtime routine for my children and for myself for me. I'm all it's all about self care so again I love being able to go in and get the diffusers going using some of my favorite nighttime oils things like lavender. Vetiver Cedar Wood Frankencense piece. So those are some of the oils that you'll find in the bedroom things that I like to use. I will always have a lavender touch roller bottle beside my bed to roll in the bottoms of my feet. I also like to have a piece of paper and a pen so that I can bring dumping but everything in my head onto paper so that it just helps me to have a better night's sleep right so look at your routines and create some great routines for yourself and for your family to help to improve your sleep because if you're sleeping better you're going to have more energy the next day or eight so take a look at that. We also want to look at our nutrition and our diet right. We WanNa make sure that we're eating the right foods right. We WanNa make sure eating fruits and vegetables. We WanNa make sure eating. Lean searches a protein complex. Carbohydrates healthy fats. We WanNa make sure that. We're watching the amount of sugar that we're eating processed foods. We want to eliminate or limit those things right so for me. I know that healthy diet but our foods aren't as nutrient dense. They were fifty years ago. So it's important for me to make sure that I'm using the right supplements in in in along with my Diet. Because that's what's going to help to give me energy now. I loved Otas. Lifelong vitality pack. It is definitely one of my favorite products that actually helps to give me energy throughout my day as well In here we have three different products that we use. We have our L. S. E. R. S. Which is our cellular complex. Which actually going to help provide great healthy cells in the body because as we age our cell to diminish you. It's important for us to have the the making sure that we're keeping those cells replenished we also have our Seo Omega which is our Omega supplement which is great for cardiovascular Brain and joint health and we also have our micro plex vm. It's it's got your twenty two essential vitamins and nutrients in there so again. You're not getting it if you're not getting it from your daily Diet it's important to make sure you get it and so for me. I've really noticed a huge difference in my overall energy throughout my day. By using this multivitamin and making sure that an eating a well balanced nutritional diet and then the third thing is obviously exercise and movement and a lot of people have business conception that in order to exercise it means you have to go and kill yourself from Jim. Right and like all these all these things that we have to go and work out for X. amount of hours really at the end of the day as long as you get your heart rate up. Maybe break a little bit of a sweat. That's important so maybe get outside. Go for a walk. Go for a run. You know put on a a Yoga Youtube video and do some yoga. It's really easy. It's what you enjoy and I think that's the thing you have to remember when it comes to movement do what you enjoy because that ultimately that's GonNa make you happy and that's what's going to help you to continue doing those things and creating those habits in your
Three tips on how to convince friends and family to stay home
"I'm health reporting tyler. Journalists Daughter Norman Swan so norman. There's been a lot of talk recently about people not taking the pandemic seriously and people that interested to talk about how to talk about it with the people in their life. Who are still wondering around too much. Do you have any tips on how to convince that person who just doesn't want to seem to get the message yet road depends through the are probably more often than not but this preaches coming here being a younger person who feels that they're invincible and they'll just go out and get it and they'll be over it and after all they'll say isn't it just like the flu and so here's the argument one is that yes. It's true that younger people are not as likely as older people to die from it but there are plenty of younger people who die for from it. So if you think you're steel belted. You're actually not thirty to forty percent of intensive care. Unit beds are taken up with people who are relatively young and some of them die and there are no known risk. Factors for why those people died because it's not like elderly people with heart disease and diabetes and so on the no other particular risk factors so you are actually playing. Russian roulette by going out and doing it and the second reason you need to actually be serious about this is do you have family so parents and grandparents you're contributing to the spread to the community and actually could kill them and then the third thing is is when you were at school. Did you have friends that we're on to do nursing? Did you have friends who went on to mid soon or work in healthcare physios and so on because if this gets out of control they will actually die because twenty percent of people of healthcare professionals will get this. They'll get a big doors and many will get it severely and there are doctors and nurses dying of this. Is that what you want? If that isn't enough to convince people I think there's something wrong with them so I do it for yourself but also do it for the people around you people that you love. That's right because it's not guarantee you're going to get a mild dose of it so David's asking if we can clarify what the differences between nineteen and size cough to SARS. Cov too confusing SARS. Cov Two is the virus that causes covered so covered. Nine thousand nine. Is the disease so flu? Like symptoms runny nose fatigue loss of taste loss of smell sometimes diarrhea. That combination of symptoms is the disease and the disease can go for a week. And then you get better or can go for a week. And then after a week you fall off the cliff and you get really seriously ill. That's covered nineteen SARS Cov. Two is the virus that causes it and it's called SARS Cov too because this conversion over related virus to SARS which affected people about fifteen or more years ago in various countries of the world. So it's kind of a second version of the SARS virus not really. The SARS virus was the second version. People say it's the corona virus really what they should be saying. It SARS Cov Tube and the reason why you separate the two is that some people are infected with SARS Cov two and either have very very mild symptoms so mild. They don't know they've got it or totally is symptomatic and sixty percent of infections of SARS COV which leads to covered nineteen are from people who are asymmetrical very minor symptoms and therefore the don't know they're spreading around so speaking of spreading it. We're also getting a lot of questions about testing and testing kits and people are asking. Why can't we being Stra? Just manufacturer testing kits. If there's a shortage there are labs that can produce the reagents and which is the chemicals you need to analyze the genes on the virus. So we do have those reagents around and we can manufacture but we don't have many facilities left in Australia which actually can do that so over the years. We've lost industries in Australia. Which have the tooling which allows you to produce these kits at mass-scale so we can produce the kids but not in the quantities. That's required us as why we're having to import them but we do have some machines around which can actually do this. Sort of testing on mass. They're taken up with other work but we do have those machines to so we would have to create a manufacturing facility with over controls there that we just don't have at the moment so that's some questions from grownups but we're also getting heaps of questions from kids and we've covered a few over the last few episodes but let's keep doing that. Clara has sent this in from isolation at home she and her family have called symptoms. And they don't WanNa make other people seek Clara an league in Adelaide. Five two more. Why IS CORONA VIRUS? Started a really good question Clara and the reason. It's so bad. Is that first of all? It's very contagious. And by contagious. We mean how many people would spread to so if I've got the infection or let's say you had Clara. How many people could you infect around you and on average you in fact two or three people one for the time that you've got the virus that's actually quite a lot so if you've got the flu it's under twos maybe one and a half people but if it was a pretty mild infection then you wouldn't worry too much and eighty percent of people eight hundred ten people? It is actually fairly mild but in twenty percent of the people it gets severe. And that's because it locks into receptor in your long. That's a lock and key mechanism in your lung and can create a really bad lung disease. So it's not a smash a lung infection as your whole long reacts and almost go solid and you lose the ability to take air from the atmosphere breathe it in and get oxygen going into your bloodstream. And that's why people die of this. We have you feel better soon Clara. We've also got a question for six year old. Ezra get virus when you already have a different virus while we'll happen mix or something else. That's a really good question as a really clever question really no but if you were to get influenza if you were to get the flu at the same time as covered nineteen that's the disease caused by the virus. Sars virus then the likelihood is that they will add or multiply together and damage your lungs and damage your body much more than each individually and maybe much more than each so. It's not multiplying by to the effects could be multiplying by four or six. Because they work with each other to actually make your body worse. That's if you get the influenza or say the common cold it could make everything much worse with other things like say for example if you've got cancer diabetes and so on usually means that your immune system your ability to fight this office weaken so you're more likely to get an infection and more likely to be able to resist it very well and so your body if you like is distracted because it's taken up by fighting the cancer or fighting the diabetes then your body's distracted and you're more vulnerable more open to the infection. Hope that explains in language that Communicates Clearly Ezra but really good question. Sorry research groups all over the world looking for different ways to treat and KUA card. Nineteen and the W. H. O. The World Organization has just launched a mega trial of four of the most promising corona virus treatments. Norman what are they testing? So they're testing a variety of drugs testing this anti-malarial co Corcoran related drug called Haiku. Hydroxy chloroquine which may be a bit stronger. They're looking at HIV drugs which are anti viral anti retroviral drugs. Ones Le Vian routine over the has been some disappointing results. I think from those two. But they're going to have a look at them as well and maybe add an immune stimulant called Interferon Beta which helps to which helps to attack viruses. So in other words you might get three drugs working together which might affect the immune system and love noon system to attack. The virus in interferometer has got some nasty side effects which would probably have to monitor it. And then there's this other drug called Rim desert here which is a recent drought produced by a drug company called Gilead for another purpose for another virus and go to try that because they think they might get an effect with the SARS Cov too. So what they're going to do. It's it's not a randomized controlled trial they're gonNA allocate people to one or other of the drugs or the or usual care drug combinations registered as a trial and watch what happens to them as the go through so that it's not going to be a perfect trial but we don't have time for a perfect trial. We just go to be able to get people. On these study drugs we know on average. What percentage goes on to develop serious disease and needs to be ventilated and we know roughly what percentage will go onto dine. Can we developed from that and then we'll do comparisons between the different drug groups. How do they know that these drugs are ones that might work? The don't really so some of it is a bit theoretical but there have been some small pilot studies which suggests that there may be ineffective anti-malarial the not very good studies. But they're not good enough to say to everybody let's get onto Corcoran and there are side effects from from these drugs as well so you don't want to recommend them because it distracts from what might be the cure and your door to real mess out there. So you really want to know. Divided all up. There's some indications from small studies uncontrolled studies relatively uncontrolled studies. These drugs may have an effect. And I were GONNA do scale up the trial and see when you compare them in a reasonably scientific way which one standout if any because non may but we gotta get on and find out.

Stalking a Short on Bitcoin
"Today in the markets guess what gave a market a Bush mock. I don't mean the market that I tried and did you try to count the number. Love me for hope. Anyway I'm talking more about the futures in the US. Of course. I'll have been talking a little bit more about that off light because it has been talk of the town has been moving quite extraordinarily. It's not a market that I focus my attention on or take people to try to teach people to try cryptocurrency because this volatility what we get that more frequently and now you understand why not try traditional markets and wiped away a couple years ago. To focus on crypto full time. I'm we're up on the close. We're up a thousand over thousand points on the E. Mini four point five percent. The and the s over spots are the s all the S. and P. Five hundred has resigned above three thousand again that appear at people like the fact the Mr Bloomberg has Bildt on the rice and Mr Bernie Sanders is less likely to to win. I think this seems to be a parent from what's happened to the markets are the things that come through that I've seen is the The the primary it appears the business seems to think in markets for that medicine to think. That's a Baden government a better a better outlook full business than I sanders. One and I forget. The market is a complete replication of capitalism. I it's it's what it is. It's about making money it's about you know. Markets go up if money's being made if things are positive So that Swab. It appears that Baden has been given the thumbs up by the markets as he did creep ahead. That's for sure so talking back across to To Amok at the market that I do try democracy. I do get people to learn about teach people to try his KRYPTONITE. Had A great deal moment a great deal of moving on? I'm market over the last twenty four hours with pretty much flexible there. There are a couple of exceptions in all. I'll speak to those in just a moment. One thing I wanted to talk about is if you're not following me on on facebook. You really should be Craig Cobb. That's a Double Bay for Bravo not day God on the fish when I was called as in kkob cow Hasn't yes I know you're saying on the voice corn on the cob all of that one before jolly you say we have had a stimulus. Packages can obviously Hong Kong suggestive funded. Something point something billion three point two billion. I think it was and we've had a believe. Sean has also come out and said they were going to stimulate put stimulating talk of people that need to state high getting up ten thousand dollars for doing so to rip To sort of I suppose gave the incentive to stay high because a main think about somebody who who doesn't work for office here so what is out there and who does physical labor. What are they doing right now? Steinheim and do what from high while the flora can swipe itself from harm Is it site? There is a lot of paper especially the Guide to saw on. This was what the stimulus packages around the world. There to sort of help with so people actually do take. Hey to the advice and stay home now. What does that mean well? Stimulus is not a bad thing. As long as it doesn't lay damore printing of money now of course the US has been exercising. It's it's Apparent right to print money for a number of as a matter of fact it started in two thousand nine hundred ninety recently stopped on. I think it'd just find out the press guy So far as quantitive easing goes in the printing if further money I think it'll be very very interesting and potentially very dangerous if other countries to sort through the site because you know if other countries go out and so we've got lots of money then it's I don't know how they will react to that Americans have gotten away with it because they're America. Okay that the dollar's seemingly backed by their eyesight that the defence force. Because you know it's not it's not a gold pin currency anymore and oddly enough they feel to Conley battered if other countries would go out there and press now. This is not something. I'm an expert on. I'm just looking at this guy. Well if if you know if the market's wonderful further we interest rates more or less globally the silo. We haven't got that Fatah guy. What will the weapons that we had last global financial crisis? Well let me tell you what those weapons were. Those weapons were number one. We had interest rates to cut interest rates to make it easy for bank. Selanne which was alive all right. Let's go do those opportunity there number three well if all else guys to the bottom of the barrel print more money okay. So they used all three of those to push the most the longest bull. Run that we've had in modern times. Now what are they this time will Jason Tonight? Qa that's bad it stimulant lights. It's it's hard to see what sort of weaponry that they have out there at the moment to continue to stimulate growth Markets Steinke forever. And it's going to be interesting so I said keeping a pretty you type in view. I suppose that everything's going to be okay but also the back of my mind. I am starting to read a little bit more When it comes to government policy Saudi Arabia doing on Titan little notice than I normally would just so that I can be ahead of the curve is more important to me than anything else brought now. Let's go throughout market and have a little little challenge. What's going on Bitcoin? Thousand seven hundred forty four dollars point two percent now. The thing is if you look at the two hour shot here. There's a try that I call the you've heard before the bitcoin rake and there is one way to test was not quite. It's it's better saying on the bit mixed job support. They'RE GONNA have locust one of my strategy's not they're incompletion and you haven't with the rules unless you do and if you do good if you don't stay away you're already but it is building there. We do have a bit of a daily downturn do gacy a short today. I will take good thing is I just did my scan. I've tried but long short Tries TO WIPE APU bucks. Got Pretty much everything that I'd like to have the mind pretty good pretty good watch this today. Their aims down but pretty much flat. It's two twenty three. Seventy six six up pays up point.

Nine percent the biggest fuller across the board has to be said it is Vail. It's just changed. But his two hundred and thirty two dollars and ninety five cents. It's down six point. One four percent. There was a pullback into an all support level and it was a little bearish candle in that cradles on. Potentially that could have been a tribe. Did I take it did I say yes? Why Not Take it?

"So as I mentioned Gerona. Brazilian plant native to the Amazon Basin. In Koran extract is made by proce into seeds into a powder it contains a range of stimulants such as Caffeine theobromine which is a bitter alkaloid of the Cacao plant and it's also direct however. It's mainly acts as a way to relax your muscles and is a cardiac stimulant and Grahn also boasts a number of antioxidants with its anti oxidant profile. Actually being very similar to that of green tea. And I'm sure you've heard of numerous benefits of incorporating green tea until diets. So let's start with the theories that Rauner helps with fat loss much like. Cla's was they will be basically looking about whether the live up to the hype so Grahn is a rich source of caffeine as just said and there is evidence to suggest that caffeine can help boost your metabolism from anywhere between three to eleven percent over twelve hours. So you'll bodies could be burning more calories at rest and what's also interesting that Gerona seeds are known for their high caffeine content around three to seven percent which is actually twice. That found in coffee. Beans Phen- is one of the most research substances in the world. And because of this were on a has not seen very much research because it contains a lot of caffeine itself. And that's what they've chosen to do the research on however it may be more effective caffeine not only because obviously has higher caffeine levels then coffee beans but also because Gerona contains other compounds that may also be beneficial for weight loss as bench before it contains small amounts of Theo brooming and also natural phenol. Anti-oxidants called Catechin which are present in lots of different dietary products. Like your your plants. Your fruits yakult sprees blueberries rapports and catechists are actually the major component of green tea extract and studies have shown that daily consumption of green tea containing six hundred ninety milligrams of Catechin for twelve. Weeks can help reduce body fat so as Catkins are in. Iran is also a suggest that it could help with a loss as well as study called modulator effects of Rauner on adipogenesis found that Grahn has an anti adipogenesis potential media counters adipogenesis which is the formation of fat cells from stem cells. And this is due to its ability to modulate micro Aurigny and genes that are related to this process. So micro army is small. Non Coding Arna that regulates gene expression and therefore biological processes in different tissues. It's also been found. Suppressor genes that aid fat cell production and promote genes that. Slow it down and the some evidence of that she suggests that increases fat oxidation which is the body's usage all fats for energy. Again though I would say that more evidence needs to be done to confirm this as most. The studies have been done on small subject. Pools with with limited amounts of people so a tooth needs to be more research conducted them once again. Studies have also tried to determine whether there's a link between Garonne and improved memory recalling cognitive function because `Grana contains high levels of caffeine. There's suggestions that might help reduce fatigue and they're starting to do more studies on the effect on your sort of cognitive function one. Such study had one hundred twenty nine eighteen to twenty four year olds and they were tasked complete a ten minute version of the cognitive demand battery and this includes a series of different tasks for them to complete and some of the group were taking a vitamin mineral supplement whilst others had a placebo so thirty minutes after having the drink whether it be a placebo or the vitamin MINERAL DRINK. They did six completions of the battery. So our testing and vitamin mineral `Grana combination resulted in improved toss performance in comparison to placebo both in terms of the speed. They complete the toss on the accuracy or performing them throughout so this suggests you know increased mental acuity and the ability to focus and hone your task more. It also showed that there was less mental fatigue when you had the wrong supplement associated extended task. Performance low doses. Grew on of course been found to improve your mood learning. And it's much like the Jin sang which is long been used in Chinese medicine to improve your memory and counteract stress to set shed sort of similar benefits as Jinxiang minutes not truly new tropic which are drugs supplements and other substances that improve cognitive function but from the tests that have been done it may help to energize to function regardless so `Grana has been associated with a number of other health benefits including improve skin condition. Heart health pain relief but again as I've mentioned before. More studies needs to be conducted on larger. Tempur to really conclude whether Rana is a miracle settlement but unfortunately again. We have time for this episode. So if you do want to look further and score on and his health benefits I strongly recommend taking a look. It's very similar properties as I said two green tea benefits so that might be another place to read about
Does Chocolate Give You a Happy High?
"We humans tend to like chocolate as of two thousand seventeen. The global chocolate market was valued at one hundred three billion dollars a year and growing but why eating chocolate makes us feel good but how chocolate contains several compounds that have been shown to add on the brain in myriad ways and most of them induce pleasure. It's also long been believed that Chocolate bestows heightened feelings of sexuality upon the eater apparently as tech ruler. Montezuma bought into this. He said to of drunk goblets full of chuckle auto unsweetened chocolate drink to boost his stamina and Libido there's also a widely held belief that chocolate can produce a euphoric feeling akin to a runner's high are understanding of euphoria producing compounds. Put together with the modern concept of addiction has even led some to believe that one can be a chocolate addict. Is that even possible? Can a person become addicted to chocolate? There's more than one compound found in chocolate. That could potentially make a person high for starters. The most widely used psychoactive drug in the world is found in chocolate caffeine. It produces a stimulating video logical effect by exciting the central nervous system which in turn increases heart rate and contracts muscles. It's a lot like the fight or flight. Response Caffeine acts on dopamine and a Denison receptors in the brain which then release respective pleasure producing chemicals. Chocolate also contains a compound. That's closely related to the active ingredient in cannabis. A cannabinoid called TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL. Nine fatty acids called cannabinoid hit the C. B. One and C two receptors found most predominantly in the frontal cortex and the parts of the brain responsible for motor function and memory when cannabinoid hit these receptors. A person starts to feel intoxicated and relaxed as a result. And as if that one two punch of psychoactive stimulant and depressant wasn't enough chocolate also packs another surprise fennel ethyl amine is often called the love drug since it releases same chemicals that are introduced into the human body. When love comes to call the compound produces a similar effect to the one produced by amphetamines and is classified as a hallucinogen. It's also aces. Releasing the pleasure producing chemicals dopamine and Serotonin a combination produces an exciting high much like the one generated by the designer drug. Ecstasy chocolate has all of the ingredients needed to make it a wonder drug by all rights. Eating a bar of chocolate should send you into orbit. So why isn't the stuff regulated by the FDA? Why aren't chocolate bars? Sold from locked cabinets behind the pharmacy counter. The truth is while there are indeed pleasure inducing and stimulating chemical compounds found in chocolate. The amount of most of these compounds are relatively small as a result of the energy drinks coffee cigarettes and yes chocolate that humans consume these days. Our brains become quite accustomed to the effects of drugs that release pleasure inducing chemicals compounds that act on receptors in the brain that released pleasure generating neurotransmitters like dopamine work. In two ways they either bind to the receptor causing it to release neurotransmitters or they bind to the site to prevent the reabsorption of those neurotransmitters. Either way there's a lot more of the chemical floating around in your bloodstream. This process is how chocolate or any other substance for that matter gets eater hi. It's also why chocolate doesn't have much of an effect on us. As the brain is exposed over and over to a barrage of compounds the number of receptors available for the compounds to bind to actually decreases and the ones that remain are less easily triggered. The reason for this reaction to drugs is the body's natural state of seeking equilibrium in other words. There's only supposed to be so much dopamine or other pleasure producing chemicals in the body. When hormones are released artificially by the compound in chocolate or any other drug. The bodies seeks balanced by shutting down the receptors released the hormones as a result we become desensitized to the effects of these compounds over time even if the compounds found in chocolate maybe two minute for some of us to get a chocolate happy high. The beloved food can still affect our happiness. The category of self interest that encompasses our pursuit of happiness. Hedonism definitely includes eating chocolate. We gain feelings of pleasure comfort and gratification from it the act of eating chocolate is hedonistic when we eat it. We're seeking pleasure in alleviating pain. Which are the hallmarks of hedonism as we've seen measuring the exact effect of chocolate on her happiness can be difficult most people however believed that such an effect exists in fact one. Canadian study examining the link between chocolate and happiness ended with no conclusive results because the control group that received no chocolate ended up raiding the refrigerator where the chocolate used the study was stored this bombing the experiment while scientists have yet to discover what causes the relationship between chocolate and happiness studies have managed to turn up correlations one two thousand seven study surveyed one thousand three hundred sixty seven respondents all men in their seventies with similar socioeconomic backgrounds and ask questions about their health that his faction in life and emotions like happiness and loneliness. They also snuck in a question that asked what kind of candy they preferred. Those who preferred chocolate showed lower frequencies of depression and loneliness and had a more optimistic outlook on life. Even science never quite figures out. What chocolate does to our moods? Does it really matter if eating chocolate makes you happy go for it?
Treatment and Recovery from Chemsex Addiction
"Welcome to the Mind podcast might guess. Today is David Fawcett and he is going to talk about Kim Sex addiction and what that means and what. That's all about David. Do you WANNA introduce this yourself until it's a little bit about you. Yes thanks so much. A Name is David Fawcett. I'm a licensed clinical social worker and sexologist sex therapist and I worked in the his field for about thirty years the last twenty years or so. That was working with a lot of men who sexually vanity use methamphetamine and other drugs and high risk sex and that developed a solo interest of mine in what is now called chem sex but we can talk more about what that means. But that's been my work for the last twenty years or so. How did you start? Start to discover this as an issue. And how did this kind of come about for you. And why is this a passion for you. Yeah thanks. I'm in recovery myself although not from Methamphetamine ben for a long time and I had added a real passion in working with a lot of gay men who were experiencing what a shame from lie stigma and corker. HIV which goes with lot of Irish sex and drug use and and that was my clientele basically for twenty years. The sex there is people were coming to me for sexual problems and with little history. We discovered that the sex from were caused by methamphetamine. A lot of the other drug use so oftentimes rather than come seeking help for the drugs. They came from the sex problems but that led right into this fusion that I was discovering between sexual behavior drug use and the devastation it caused for these individuals. Okay so let's talk a little bit about what that looks like when we say chem mm sacks and fusion and what does that mean right so what I really discovered is that we have addiction to substances. We have addiction to behaviors like like sex and each of those treated slightly differently. But really this is the third thing in my opinion where people simultaneously using drugs. And almost always an amphetamine is in the mix there and combining with sex is actually a fusion or abandoning of those that occurs in the brain neurologically those pathways become connected and so that behavior. Stage really is one set of behaviors and so if we take the traditional approach of getting somebody clean from their drug problems and hope the sex from take care of themselves. They don't because the two are so fused if someone gets cleaned oftentimes our sexual life goes with it. And that's the problem. People were coming before they were in a year clean. Eighteen months clean had virtually no sexual desire because that had been so fused with their drug use when they give up the drugs. They're excellent with right and so the whole thing so tell me a little bit when you say fused. Can you give me an example of how that might look like in a person who's struggling with this what that would look like sure and so this happens because of dope managed neuro transmitters. That's essentially that really acts. We teach our dog had into a trick if the dog sits and I have a treat it's dopamine that bonds those two things together and so if someone is acting out sexually using drugs those two things get bonded the way it looks. Is that if I'm in that state where they become paired or fused. If I see a sexy person on the street I may get a tremendous craving to get high or if I see see A SYRINGE IF I've been injection drug user I may get a sexual urge at the same time the two go hand in here and so one really triggers the other and that is missile bundle of Hughes in triggers. That really make a complicated for someone and then as I said in recovery because if we don't treat that really from sex therapy perspective people's sex lives have been so kind of re set by that super stimulation of sex and drugs. That nothing normal is appealing anymore. It's a very similar. The process. We see when sexton point addiction where the super stimulation occurs. In the brain to reboot in recovery right. How does this get introduced into a person's NHS life I mean? They're having sex than they used drugs together. And then that becomes a combo. or where do we see this and I guess I'm asking. How does it manifest itself? How does is a gro or how does it become this fused together right? I think certainly among many sexiest man is a sole confusion of the APPS. You know they a hook up APPs combined with the right use and you can go in those and discover basically with Coding Party in play people that are looking not only connect with drugs but that sex as well and so oftentimes this kind of introduce organically like that and it's not a problem just among gay men as best sexual world we think of you know had in treatment we've had heterosexual the guys who use cocaine and get see prostitutes. You don't get that same Russia. The whole endeavour so people discover quite quickly. The other way I've seen it introduced is through tolerance which we see addiction in general but where people kind of what was doing it for them. Yesterday doesn't quite as exciting anymore. up the ante a little bit Escalate of were highest sex. Or maybe more taboo things just to get stimulation go right so I guess vanilla sex gets boring or something in the add this element to it. And then that creates a heightened sense of pleasure intensity they start chasing that that that Combo that's exactly right and that becomes kind of new baseline and anything less than that is not only boring or not interesting. But almost even depressant depressant and so people's lives what used to give them pleasure including their their human partners. Don't do that anymore even the food. There's a state we call Anhedonia where the people are just. Everything's kind of great again experience pleasure and so that's quite common. So what happens in the brain as you start to fuse these things together. What's going going on? 'cause you're talking about Antonia and can you defy I for any listeners. Who Don't know what that is? What is an Danica? And then let's talk about how the brain right brings brings us all together. So Antonio is the state where people just can't experienced any pleasure. Life is kind of a gray. Everything's depressing or sad and I'm just happy or Perky. Oh bright and people that suggested emotional state. That's often do in this where we see. This addictions is the brain actually shedding receptors without getting into the weeds too much dopamine the neurotransmitter that makes us feel good that happens with cocaine with methamphetamine another stimulants it releases a lot of dopamine mean sex orgasm Jesus dopamine and makes us feel good. What happens with addiction particularly with Kim Sex? In a very profound way that this level of volume volume literal volume stimulation coming at the brain and so it actually sheds doping receptors an effort to control the amount of volume. It's getting stimulation and so that controls and to some extent but if we take away the stimulation if somebody gets clean and sober or stops acting out sexually that simulations drop to such a level that does even register and that's when that depressive state kicks
Giant Swarm Of Locusts From Middle East Now Threatening Kenya's Farms
"Is facing is facing. Its worst locust invasion in seven decades. The locusts have found perfect conditions over the past two years as they have moved from the middle released onto the African continent where they are now threatening farmland and peers eight Peralta reports. The swarms of locusts are massive. Some of them extend across miles of land but finding that is not easy because at the moment they are in one of Kenya's most remote remote regions so we drive offroad up mountains we pass dry riverbeds acacia trees and an occasional antelope elope and then my interpreter notices flickers of yellow zooming past us and the road ahead turns yellow.

Plenity is the New Weight Loss Drug in Town. Does It Work?
"Today I've got an advanced look at a newly approved weight-loss drug that's GonNa be coming onto the market this year nutrition diva listener. John recently asked me to weigh in on a new. FDA FDA approved weight-loss drug called jealous one hundred. The drug is not yet available to the public. But it'll probably be coming onto the market very soon as as a prescription only drug under the brandname plenty. I bet it's going to be hard to miss it when it does become available because there's probably going to be a huge advertising and marketing push but is this new drug going to be the one that turns the tide against obesity. Previous pharmaceutical approaches to weight loss. Have all had major drawbacks stimulants. Like fantasia mean are quite effective in suppressing appetite for example but they can be habit forming not to mention that Paschi side effective occasionally stopping your heart other drugs such as Orla stat are somewhat effective in blocking the absorption of fat and calories from boots which can be helpful unfortunately they also block the absorption of some fat soluble nutrients not mentioned a rather embarrassing side affect requiring frequent changes of underwear. This new drug takes a different approach that avoids the worst of these side effects. It's it's designed to reduce your food intake by making you feel like you've had more to eat than you actually have so the drug is made from two compounds. That occur naturally in foods foods cellulose and citric acid. You swallow three capsules with a big glass of water before meals and the capsules released particles in your stomach stomach which rapidly absorbed the water and expand to form a harmless GEL. This GEL has no calories but it takes up a fair amount of space in your stomach and your intestines and with less room in your stomach. The idea is you'll eat less and then you'll lose some weight. How well does it work well? In a clinical trial people who used plenty and also followed a reduced Calorie Diet and exercise moderately lost more weight. On average than in those who reduced calories exercised and took a placebo about twenty percent of the people in both groups dropped out before the end of the trial which was scheduled to last about six months months of those who completed the entire six months. The group taking planete lost about six percent of their weight while the group taking a placebo lost is just about four percent so you could say that people taking the drug lost fifty percent more weight than people taking the placebo and that sounds really impressive. However the actual weight loss was pretty modest in both groups? The group taking plenty lost an average of fourteen pounds while the placebo group lost an average average of ten pounds. So we're only talking about an extra four pounds over the course of six months and just as a reminder everybody was also oh reducing calories and exercising now even though the people who were taking planete didn't lose a whole lot more weight than the people who didn't it is certainly possible that they found it a little bit easier to stick to their diets because maybe they didn't feel as hungry. Unfortunately the researchers didn't report on things like perceived hunger or how difficult the subjects founded to stick to their diets they did assess safety and side effects. That's a big part of getting your drug rug approved and there were no big concerns about safety but the group taking the drug definitely did report more side effects than the group who were taking the placebo and most of these side effects were digestive symptoms like diarrhoea or bloating gas constipation or abdominal pain. But most of these were considered mild mild in severity. There are some non-pharmaceutical ways to make your stomach feel fuller researcher. Barbara Roles also has popularized an approach known as volume metrics. And the idea. Here is to choose foods that have a lot of volume but not too many calories primarily merrily these are foods that contain a lot of fluid or a lot of fiber so soups brought whole vegetables and fruits whole grains that sort of thing even just drinking a full glass of plain water before meals has been shown to decrease food intake these volume metric foods triggers special cells in your stomach that register pressure or fullness and this then sends a signal to your brain that you've had enough to eat presumably this feature is designed to prevent us from eating until our stomachs literally explode but because these volume metric foods and liquids. Don't contain a lot of calories. You end up reducing your calorie intake and losing weight. It's basically the same concept as plenty. Only it involves healthy foods instead of
What Are the Health Benefits of Yerba Mate?
"Monty leaves are traditionally cured over woodfire and that gives it a slightly smoky flavor. This is similar to the process. used to create Lobsang Suzanne t now unfortunately the smoke also imparts polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. You'll sometimes see those abbreviated as P.. A. H. is and these are carcinogenic. Compounds that are also present in other smoked foods and grilled meats very high consumption of Matei Taytay or for that matter high consumption of any smoked food or grilled meats might increase the risk of cancer due to increased exposure to these P.. AH's some studies have linked high consumption of Matei or not with increased rates of oral and ASAF GIO cancers. But this this may have more to do with the temperature of the beverages than with Ph exposure drinking very hot liquids of any kind appears to increase the risk of oral in gastric cancers answers. So if you're one of those people who like your coffee tea or Mateo scalding hot you might WANNA start letting them cool off just a bit before for drinking them. Excessive Caffeine consumption whether from Mateo or any other source can lead to some unpleasant symptoms like irritability sleeplessness listening or physical jitters and people's tolerance for caffeine varies greatly for some even a small amount of caffeine creates unpleasant side effects. Others can consume quite a bit of caffeine without any problem. The caffeine content of Matei is roughly midway between black tea and coffee with coffee on the high the end. If you're new to Matei or any caffeinated beverages start with a small mountain. See how it affects you and increase gradually. So how do you make this stuff. Well you can buy Monte premade look near the canned iced teas or you can brew your own now. The traditional method is to pour near. You're boiling water over the leaves and steep for several minutes and the tea is then strained and served either hot or cold and with or without the addition of sweetener. If you want to get really traditional you WanNa brew your Matei in Gourd and sip it through a special medal straw with a filter at one end to keep all the little bits. It's from getting into your mouth. Matei can also be shared as a ritual of friendship or hospitality. And of course there's a whole set of rules and manners that go along along with that and finally what is Monte tastes like. Well like most caffeinated beverages Matei is an acquired taste sugar or honey can be added to make it more palatable although that also offsets the healthfulness somewhat but I bet you can love your first sip of coffee either especially only if you try to black. In truth most traditional stimulant drinks are somewhat bidder due to the various plant alkaloids that give them their special properties but given their enduring popularity. I would say that the pleasant or useful effects of the caffeine must more than compensate for any initial aversion.
What Are the Health Benefits of Yerba Mate?
"Talking about Uraba Matei today. What is it? What are the health benefits attributed to it? And how can you best enjoy. Matei is traditional South American beverage. That's brewed from the leaves and stems of the Yerba Matte tape plant. And that's a tree that belongs to the Holly Ali. Family motto is widely consumed in Argentina Uruguay Paraguay and Brazil where the Matia tree is indigenous. But you'll also find Matei as an ingredient gradient in energy drinks or even in the herbal tea section of your local health food store fun fact technically. The Word T. only applies to the leaves leaves of the Camilla Sinensis or tea plant so the category of beverages popularly known as herbal tea are actually tisanes anyway. Human human beings apparently have a universal appetite for stimulants depending on where on the globe. Your ancestors found themselves. They might have enjoyed beverages made from coffee. Cacao Beans Goran Berries Cola nuts or T- or Mateo leaves although each contains a slightly different array of active chemicals. All all of these plants contain caffeine or a closely related molecule with similar stimulant properties. There are many impressive health benefits attributed to drinking matei including greater energy mental focus reduced fatigue weight loss antioxidant activity and enhanced sport performance formation's but before you get too excited about this new miracle brew. Most of those benefits that are attributed to Matei are available from any caffeinated needed beverage. There's no question. That caffeine stimulates the central nervous system. And that results in alertness and reduced fatigue now the impact of Mateo on weight. Wait and fat loss is likely to be relatively minor especially compared to the impact of your food and movement choices and similarly expect only incremental effects on your athletic performance. It might help you go a little longer or a little faster but Matia is not going to turn a weekend jogger into an Olympic runner or anything. So let's talk about how caffeine affect the body. Caffeine is not addictive in the true sense of the word but it is habit forming. If you drink caffeine in regularly your body will become habituated to its effects. You might feel like you can't wake up in the morning until you've had your first cup and if deprived of your regular caffeine fix you may develop a temporary headache. So if you're trying to quit caffeine I recommend weaning yourself gradually to minimize any of those unpleasant side effects on the plus side regular consumers also habitue to caffeine's diuretic effects contrary to Popular Lore. Drinking caffeinated needed beverages. Like coffee and tea or Matei is not dehydrating if you drink them. Regularly long-term Caffeine use also appears to have neuro protective effects fact reducing the risk of dementia Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease now just like different fruits and vegetables have different nutrient profiles coffee fi t mateo and the other stimulant beverages each contain unique phytochemicals that may offer distinct benefits but the similarities here are greater later than the differences. You can stick to your favorite caffeine vehicle or play the field or of course you may choose to abstain altogether many many of the antioxidant and other disease fighting compounds that are found in coffee tea and Matei can also be gotten from non stimulating fruits and vegetables in particular apples bowls. Berries grapes asparagus garlic onions and
Markets doubt Fed's ability to defend economy, spur inflation
"Here's christine lagarde chairwoman of the international monetary fund and a newly nominated e._c._b. President earlier this year. The bottom line is that after two years of solid expansion the world economy is growing more slowly then unexpected and risks are rising. Growth concerns have been at the heart of the dovish pivot. We've seen from central banks. This year and markets on our economists alike now expect the fed just start delivering rate cuts as soon as this month. Here's fed chair jerome powell testifying on capitol hill just last week and our june meeting. We indicated did that. In light of increased uncertainties about the economic outlook in muted inflation pressures we would closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and would act as appropriate to sustain the expansion the market reaction to all of this has been noteworthy typically growth concerns rise investor demands shifts towards less less risky assets that means investors usually buy bonds causing yields to decline and sell stocks causing equity prices to fall a recently. We've generally seen the reverse with bond yields declining while stock prices have risen to all-time highs many think this is because fed cuts just protecting against a downturn rather than actually responding to one but others things stocks and bonds are sending very different messages about growth with bond investors more worried about recession while equity investors are focusing on the upside of course markets are fickle these days and this pattern between stocks and bonds has waxed and waned but the broader questions remain how concerned about growth growth should we really be and are fed actions which some believe have been too responsive to markets in the end helping or hurting the growth outlook from here the the answer to these questions and implications for asset performance are top of mind. I i turned to legendary investor dollar-euro founder and co chief investment investment officer of bridgewater associates to see what he makes of these developments. Dalia thinks the recent market action makes sense but is worried about an adverse environment for growth in nathen ahead. We're really grappling with the question of whether there is a disconnect between stocks and bonds and what their pricing in terms of growth stock values and fundamental we determine why the present value of expected cash flows and when interest rates go down that's a positive dachshund present value since so when i look at the decline and interest rates and the move to do a more stimulus effect policy i look at that as a temporary positive of effect on stocks by that it is a non sustainable effect on stocks for the long run because there is a limitation as to how far interest rates i can go down and how quantitative easing can work so when interest rates go down causes the present value of assets to rise but <hes> it also means that there's less stimulation in the bottle because you get closer to interest interest rates approaching zero think of this as a stimulus that is in a bottle and it's running out so if you use it yes you can you can get a kick out of the economy and a kick out of the markets but the important shift in the world will be coming when monetary policy is not very effective when they're essentially out of the stimulant is in the bottle dalia was concerned that the fed and other other central banks are running out of stimulus. He also thinks the fed's shift to a more dovish. Monetary policy was appropriate and if anything could have come sooner and he doesn't give much credence to the view that the fed has been responsive to bond market concerns. Here's what he had to say on the fed it worry too much about a strong economy with breath limited capacity to expand and they were worried about the combination of the fiscal stimulation and the low rates of employment and and that inflation would accelerate they were very worried about the classic cycle happening in my opinion too worried about that and so going into two year end they over tighten the ending <hes> then did a sharp reversal opinion and appropriate sharp reversal because the inflation risks and the growth risks are exaggerated but ultimately there is a narrative in the markets now has been overly responsive to bond market pricing so just to clarify you don't agree with that. View doesn't carry much weight with me. I think that people who say that presume that the fed things the bond market is right and one can conjecture at the bond market see something that the fed needs to follow or or one could say that the yield curve becoming inverted and what is discounted and the price means something that the fed should be more cautious. Those was a reasonable statement. Realistically you have to ask what is that something that is causing the long rates to go down while the economy's slowing slowing for a number of reasons and then of course we're fairly late in the cycle we have the greater wealth gap and optimism polarity laverty and geopolitical issues particularly with china so if you were to look at the world economy as a whole you would say say that there should be an easier monetary policy and if you look at the interest rate differentials and the currency movement and what the federal reserve i can do it's reasonable that interest rates would go down and that they would be led by the market at a faster pace <hes> than <hes> the fed goldman sachs strategist agree that recent market actions make sense amid rising growth uncertainty. They actually argue that despite very high index levels you can nc growth concerns reflected across risky assets in the performance of higher quality and defensive sectors in equity credit and commodity markets so bond markets are less of an outlier than they first appear beyond hot seats. The firm's chief economist says these growth concerns are overdone if anything he's more concerned about the direction the fed and is less convinced that the benefits of easing here outweigh the potential costs namely the increased likelihood of so-called hard landing for the u._s. economy. How worried should we really be about u._s. And global growth it seems to me that the growth outlook while clearly not a strong as in two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen eighteen is still pretty decent. We're looking for growth in the two percent range in the second half of this year and then actually a little bit more than that in two thousand thousand and twenty which would still put us a touch above or estimate the underlying trend pace of growth which is in the 175 range so <hes> yeah we're we're we would say cautiously optimistic that were still going to see decent one reason for this is the easing and and financial conditions which has taken place really for most of this year and again more clearly in recent weeks which should mean that the impulse from financial financial conditions to growth is going to become somewhat more positive as the year goes on that trip b visible and things like homebuilding where there's a very direct impact from for mortgage rates and also personal consumption where equity prices obviously matter so how much should the recent shift toward and even more dovish bias from the fed which has this recently prompted us to assume that we are going to see some cuts this year how much should that temper concerns about growth and inflation disappointments. I mean does that really need on all well. I think it helps easier monetary policy. I think does have real effects. I think in the u._s. It's uh relatively easy to generate positive impulses because the funds rate is two point four percent strictly in positive territory you can law or the funds rate you can thereby generate easing financial conditions that will have an impact on growth and of course some of this is already frontloaded market pricing anticipating fed cuts cuts in the us to me doesn't look particularly necessary. I mean to me it. Actually looks like the economy is fine even without monetary easing so here. It's really not a question of whether monetary easing is effective but whether it's necessary. Do you think the fed is setting up a policy mistake by intending or signaling. They're on the verge of cuts. It's a question of costs and benefits so i think when the economy is generally fine and you're maybe providing a little a bit more additional stimulus. The benefit is relatively limited and it's possible that ultimately over stimulate the economy you push the unemployment unemployment rate down to a level that is too low to be sustained in the longer term with inflation at about two percent and then and you need to increase the unemployment rate over time and historically. It's been very difficult to do that without a recession. There's never been an increase in the average of the unemployment rate of more than thirty five basis disappoints that wasn't associated with the recession and i think that's probably a somewhat bigger issue now than it might have been comparable episodes in the past because because of some of the politics and some of the influence on the fed from the electoral calendar for example we are going into an election year if they we do deliver some insurance cots and two thousand and <hes> nineteen <hes> as we're we're we're projecting it will be much harder to to unwind. Those insurance cuts in two thousand twenty. If it turns out that the not needed or maybe even counterproductive <hes> now if it was a very clear cut that case i think they would hike in two thousand twenty but at the margin it's just going to be a harder as you approach a probably very contentious presidential look so do you think the market is too concerned about growth and maybe not concerned enough that the fed could be heading ultimately atlanta counterproductive jim action. Yes <hes> i. I am concerned about that. I think that the market is somewhat concern. On growth. I think markets to lawn flation asian markets underestimating the extent to which the current weak inflation numbers are driven by more special factors. I think what chairman paul's at at the me press conference not doing press conference but the main press conference about the outliers in the core p._c. A._c. numbers and the much stronger message sent by the dallas fed's trim mean p._c. Index all of those things i thought were correct then and they remain correct saw aw i think we'll see you see a rebound inflation and not as concerned about inflation expectations as many in the markets partly because i think that break even inflation compensation in the bond. The market is not a great measure of inflation expectations. The service actually still look consistent with inflation expectations that are anchored around two percent so yeah i mean i i have a different sense of the relative risks and therefore also a different sense of where you're more likely to make a mistake i think the dominant market view is that the fed's been too slow and they continue to be too slow and they need to move expeditiously in the direction of easier policy. My view is that if they moved too quickly and to aggressively than they are at risk of over stimulating the economy and thereby raising the risk of a hard landing you know maybe not in twenty twenty but <hes> at some point in the future janas also somewhat concerned about the amount of political pressure on the fed which poses a threat to its independence so obviously the other factor here has been the white house's pressure on the fed to keep rates low or cut further. How much do you think that's benefactor. Do you think there there is reason to be concerned about the independence of the fed well. I think there is some reason to be to be concerned. I mean the pressure has been very overt. Coach and the desire to appoint political loyalists to <hes> fed positions has definitely been there so there has been talk about firing or demoting chair paul. It's a little unclear how far that <hes> that wind but you know all of goals things are of course threats to the independence of the of the federal reserve. I think the fed is still independence. Still does act independently leave. I don't think that chair paul and his colleagues take orders from the white house. However i also think that there is sort of an indirect avenue the new for pressure on the fed that goals via the bond market because clearly the bond market is responsive to political chatter and reports of much more dovish appointees appointees for the board of governors or demands for for rate cuts and to the extent that the f._o._m._c. puts more weight on bond market pricing and setting a <hes> its own policy. I think that is way in which the political pressure can actually have some impact so for me. This is another reason to be somewhat skeptical that that we should be putting all that much weight on bond market pricing and be a bit more resistant to the idea of the fed should be just deliver what the bond market's pricing so what would this slightly more optimistic outlook mean for the sustainability of the broader rallies. We've seen in pretty much everything this year even if growth holds up as our economists m._s. expect goldman sachs research things were still likely to see to federate cuts and a broader bond rally prevail but that won't do much to boost stocks going forward according to our achieve u._s.

How Getting Sleep Can Reduce Food Cravings
"Have you ever noticed that you feel hungrier or have uncontrollable cravings for certain foods after a poor night's sleep. It's not just your imagination studies have shown that even a single night of sleep deprivation changes the levels of our hunger and our appetite hormones leading to increased hunger and it also affects the way that your brains motivation centers respond onto the site or even just the thought of food essentially when you are under rested both your body Andrew Brain are sending strong signals that drive you while to the drive through those extra calories can easily lead to weight gain and that would seem to explain the well documented connection between under sleeping and being overweight under sleeping is also associated with an increased risk of heart disease and type two diabetes. There is some good news here though. Oh researchers from the University of Cape Town in South Africa recently analyzed results from seven different studies that used various methods to increase sleep duration and they found that when people got more sleep they were unless hungry during the day and even better they experienced a reduced desire for sweet and salty foods so perhaps this is the motivation that you need to finally get serious about improving your sleep habits but how how will the first step involves a set of practices that are collectively referred to as sleep hygiene now if you've done all of that and that doesn't help I do have some more intensive approaches that you can try but let's just start with the basics x number one limit caffeine after midday caffeine can make you more alert and boost your ability to concentrate and it also appears to have neuro protective properties regular consumption of caffeine reduces the risk of both Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease but because it is a stimulant it can interfere with your sleep.

Pill Colors Influence Their Effectiveness
"Something interesting, if you've ever taken medication for something, the color of pills influences, how well they'll work on you. It's true. Imagine you have two identical anti itch creams. But one is white, and the other is red which would you reach for Ashley, I mean, definitely the white one white is so soothing. Right. Exactly. And because you feel that way, that means everyone feels that way. Exactly. He's closed science over just kidding. Here is the actual science. You already know about the placebo effect. That's when you feel like a drug or treatment cured you when it really had no medical reason to do. So if you. Aleve drug list, little sugar pill will race your throbbing headache. It really can turns out the brain is a powerful Oregon, and the placebo effect can influence how well real medication. Works to in one thousand nine hundred six study, green and blue pills had more sedative effects than other colors, red and orange on the other hand gave more stimulant effects. A nineteen seventy study suggested that yellow pills, make the most effective antidepressants and studied from nineteen eighty two said the green medicine can do a better job of getting rid of anxiety, and that Wade stuff. We'll sue your pain if you had to choose an anti itch cream you'd probably choose white over red, like Ashley, right? Exactly. Oh, in brand names can have an impact to as in brand names literally printed on the pill, according to a nineteen Eighty-one study, a white aspirin with the name stamped into it can dupe your brain into being more effective than the anonymous looking unstamped one anyway. There's a reason for all this, our brains take cues from colors to set up certain expectations about the world around us basically. Whether you think you do or not your brain happens to care about color. That's why green ketchup didn't work out for Hines and why you don't see burger kings, black burgers, or a clear, crystal Pepsi these days. Relating back to medication people, generally perceive yellow to be cheery like sunshine and blue to becoming like a placid lake. It's then no wonder a bright yellow antidepressant and not a grayish blue one. We'll get you thinking happy thoughts before you ever pop it into your mouth. The only question this study, relieves for me is then how do you feel about tech tax? The orange ones are the worst thing, imaginable. I go with classic green. I guess the white ones are really powerful like too much. You don't eat a lot of tax to, you know, I just know the ones I hate. Oh, purples bad, too. Purple tech.

ADHD treatment device approved by FDA
"For the first time the FDA approves device to treat ADHD kids. Get low level electric pulses while they sleep and the results are similar to the effect of non stimulant drug treatment. Dr Tara knew Rula talked about it on CBS this morning. The device is basically a new treatment that's non drug related, which is great for a lot of parents who don't want to put their kids on medication. And so it's the size of a cell phone. And basically it has a wire that attached to a patch that's placed on the child's forehead. They wear it at night while they're sleeping for about eight hours. It's meant for kids who are over the age of seven not on medication.

A bunch of explorers. The pills didn't know the floor is it's once an hour. It had to have been a kind of low dose, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I like this the stained approach. Yeah. Mike I want. I don't want five hour energy. I want one hour that is unavailable because like five hours as a long time. I wanna be five hours from now. I want to be not energy'd. Yeah. Then every hour you get to decide to I want to extend this forced March or not. Could be like get super rich right now with our energy one fifth of your five hour, energy drinks.
