A highlight from The Breakdown of Trust with Doomberg
"One of the things that held up the US dollar hegemony was the state of our institutions and the quality of our financial markets and the rule of law and the level of corruption and criminality that is on blatant display in Washington DC is appalling. And once you lose your ethical framework as a society, what do you have? Good morning from a very happy Bedford and a very happy chairman of the football team that just won their first FA Cup game. We're through to the next preliminary round of the FA Cup against MK Irish on Saturday, which was amazing. Also very cool. We had two Australian Bitcoiners, What Bitcoin Did, listeners who'd come into the country. They made the pilgrimage to Bedford and came and watched the game, which was amazing. Speaking of which, we're making the pilgrimage the other way round. September the 9th, Danny and I are going to be in Australia. We've got a WBD Live in Sydney with Nick Bartier, Willy Woo, Checkmate, Rusty Russell, and Dan Roberts all on stage. It's going to be a banger. If you're in Australia and you want to come out, you want to hang out, you want to come and see a live What Bitcoin Did, go and get yourself a ticket. It's whatbitcoindid .com and click on WBD Live. Anyway, welcome to the What Bitcoin Did podcast, which is brought to you by the legends at Iris Energy, the largest Nasdaq listed Bitcoin miner using 100 % renewable energy. I'm your host, Peter McCormack, and today I've got everyone's favorite giant green chicken back on the show, the amazing Doonberg. Now, Doonberg's becoming a regular on the show now. I can find his analysis of almost anything, any weird stuff that's going on in the world, anything related to, you know, recently we've got superconductors, we've got aliens, we've got economic crisis. I find he is a good person to go to and talk to about this. Now, originally when we did book this, we did plan to talk about superconductors, but before we actually started recording, it came out that LK99 wasn't in fact a superconductor. So we talked about this and we talked about how they analyze this and how they came to their thoughts. But then we moved on to a broad range of subjects from cancer cure medicine to the BRICS currencies and everything Elon Musk is doing with X and why Doonberg has gone lurker mode on X, formally Twitter. And I couldn't let him leave without asking him about Bitcoin as well. Of course, I had to after his $5 ,000 call last time. Anyway, listen, I know you're going to love this one. I absolutely love talking to Doonberg. But you got any questions about this or anything else, please hit me up. It's HelloWhatBitcoinDid .com. Big green chicken. Good to see you. It's good to see you, Peter. How have you been? Yeah, really good. Really good. Yeah, just busy traveling a lot. Been out to Argentina since I spoke to you last. And I'm not sure if you saw the results that came in last night from their primaries. Yes, indeed. Making the big news. I might even ask you about that later on. Loads of weird stuff's been happening since we last spoke. Yes, indeed. Well, the good news is that the news flow means that we'll never have a shortage of things for us to talk about. No, I thought we were going to talk about superconductors. I definitely recently read your piece on the cancer -curing pill. And we've also had the US congressional hearings on aliens, among some of the things. So just your standard news flow for COVID world. Indeed, indeed. Where would you like to begin? I know the information has changed. But let's talk a little bit about the superconductor thing. Because the internet was feverish with excitement about the potential of the discovery of a superconductor. It turns out that it wasn't. What happened here? Were we hoodwinked? Were we tricked? Specifically, what was claimed was the development of a room temperature superconductor. Of course, if you cool down certain materials to low enough temperature, they do superconductive already display behavior. The discovery of such a behavior that could operate at room temperature, or in this case, they claim that they were able to observe superconducting activity at temperatures above the boiling port of water. That would truly be a world -changing discovery on par with fission and perhaps the development of semiconductors. And it is a holy grail. And that phrase is overused, of course. But the advent of such material would truly qualify for one of those. When we first saw the piece that was published, we were very skeptical of it. We wrote our own analysis of it in the days afterwards at the peak of the excitement, really, called Conducting Diligence. And over the years, we have used a five -question framework analyzing for such discoveries. And we applied it, introduced it, and applied it here. As background, when I was an executive in the corporate world, I led very large technology groups. And many CEOs get most of their science advance information in the Wall Street Journal or the Financial Times. And so it was very, very common for whoever my CEO was at the time to forward such things to me and demand my instant analysis of it. And oftentimes, I had to talk such people out of reorienting investment dollars to chase down the latest hype cycle. And so over those decades, really, we developed this framework that allowed us to systematically write five paragraphs to our executive overlords and to explain to them most of the times why such an advance was worth watching, but perhaps not worth acting on yet. Occasionally, one does pass that screen. And in this case, we use those five questions and concluded by saying that we're deeply, deeply skeptical. Happy to dive into the details as to why. But I do think that piece that we wrote has stood the test of time quite well. Yeah, before we dive in, can you explain why a superconductor would be such a game changer, though? There's the superficial reasons that the media likes to write about, which is, oh, you can imagine transmitting massive amounts of electricity with no loss and reorienting the entirety of our electricity grid. But in reality, in our view, it would be how a room temperature superconductor could facilitate advances in otherwise unrelated fields. And then the second and third order effects of those would be truly a game changer. In particular, collective computing, for example, would stand to benefit greatly from an advance in room temperature superconducting. And that field, of course, has had its own hype cycle. But quantum computing, a true advance in room temperature superconductors, for example, we believe could put the world of computing back on pace of exponential growth. If you squint at the log curves of the rate of computing advances, it seems to have slowed down a little bit in the past few years. Of course, we're still making massive advances. But it's the second and third order impacts from the other technologies that would be enabled by such an advance that we think would ultimately transform society. And look, all manner of sensitive electronic applications, a quantum computing advance would jeopardize encryption, for example. And there's just countless other ways that a step change like this would be very, very useful. And as we said in the piece, vast riches and a quick ticket to Stockholm to collect a Nobel Prize await those who succeed in demonstrating the phenomenon. And many serious physicists doubt that such an advance is even possible. So when you see such an enormous claim like this, it is irresistible that the hype wouldn't proceed in the way that it did. It's totally understandable. But at the same time, we had serious, serious doubts from the very beginning for the reasons that we wrote in that piece. Okay, so can you break down why you were skeptical in your piece? Yeah, so we asked five questions and I'll just list them carefully. They're simple questions. And the good thing about this approach is it doesn't require all that much in the way of specific expertise in the underlying area. And I should say up front, this is not something that I personally have a deep level of practical knowledge in the nuances of the science, but it's not needed in this case. So the five questions are, who's involved? Where was it published? Where are we in the scientific process? What is the scientific context? And then what should we expect next? And if you go through each of those questions, the first one, as with most human endeavors, the reputation and pedigree of the people involved matters. As we said in the piece, if Google and MIT announce a computing advance, you probably would be safe to bet that they have the goods. But if your neighbor tugs on your sleeve at a party and whispers quietly about an invention he's been working on in his garage for years that's sure to change the world, you'd probably be justified in having a healthy degree of skepticism here. The researchers involved have very good pedigree. The team is based in Korea, but they also collaborate with a relatively well -known physics professor at the College of William and Mary, and they seem to be trained in the field. And most importantly, one of the main inventors said they would be willing to support anyone trying to replicate the work, and we took that as a good sign. Things get a little sketchier when you consider where it was published, which is the second question. And here, these results were not published in a peer -reviewed journal of any pedigree. They were self -published as preprints on the internet, two of them, actually, one with three authors and the other with six. And the barrier to publishing a preprint is zero. You and I, Peter, could publish a preprint making claims to this very same website and generate a hype cycle of our own. That's not to say that the work was bad, but in our view, if this had passed peer review at a reputable journal, it would have lent more credibility to the claims. Unfortunately, this is not the world that we live in, and these preprints were hyped. And one of the reasons why this matters is because, as I believe, ultimately the story will dictate the misinterpretation of the data that this looks like is what happened. This would have been caught in that peer review process and would never have made the hype cycle, which is the third question. Where are we in the scientific process since it's unpublished? And basically, nobody would consider these results to be validated until independent researchers reproduce the work in their own laboratories. And one of the reasons why it's important to publish your paper in a journal and pass peer review is because a key job of editors at such journals is to ensure authors provide sufficient, specific details that allow others to confirm the work. And the good news with this is, as we pointed out in the piece, the compounds used were pretty simple and the synthetic procedures were rudimentary, which actually gave us even more pause because typically giant leaps of science don't usually arise from what we call kitchen chemistry, such as this. But on the other hand, the fact that it was so straightforward meant that others would very quickly be able to test whether the results were real. And then the fourth question is the scientific context. And here, we've had example after example of such claims falling flat, data being retracted. Sometimes it's fraud. Most often, it is misunderstanding of the phenomenon. And so, especially, you know, the equivalent would be claims of battery breakthroughs. You know, we've written another piece on this as well. There's certain fields where the prize is so high that the weaknesses of the scientific method as practice in the modern era are really on display. And the pursuit of a room temperature superconductor would be one of those. And then the last question is what should we expect next, which is exactly what has transpired. A bunch of people tried to reproduce it. Nobody has been able to do so. It appears as though experts have studied the preprints and their own experimental work and have come up with explanation an alternative for the phenomenon that was witnessed. And as we said in our verdict, nobody would be more thrilled to see these results validated than us. But we found ourselves deeply skeptical. The last point I would say is the leap was too far, the method is too simple, and the process too premature to get excited. And I think that was a good view at the time. So is their project dead or are they still working on it? Well, the problem with making such a hyperbolic claim is that it becomes difficult for people to continue to pursue the work. And there's really not that much to pursue here if the reinterpretation of the data is as the scientific community seems to be coalescing on. Because it's just not that interesting of a discovery. And so, you know, back to the drawing board. We were going to write a follow -up piece called What If. It's one of these pieces that was sort of written in my head that never saw the light of day because by the time we would have gotten it published it would have seemed a bit silly. But if this had been true, even if it was a small component or a minor byproduct, the state of industrial heterogeneous synthesis using high throughput techniques is such that the big companies would have obliterated this experimental map across all dimensions. Concentration, oxygen, temperature ramp, you name it. They would have done thousands and thousands and thousands of experiments. They would have found the exact molecule that worked. And that it can work itself is a gigantic discovery. And so if one can work, it would have taken weeks for the industry to isolate an entire family of these things, then the theory would have caught up to it very quickly. And there would have been something about these things that teaches theory something interesting, which then would very quickly inform the synthetic chemists as to how to optimize and create. It would have been, you know, like how the first person to break the four -minute mile and suddenly everybody does it. That this would have been one of those situations where raw the power of the high throughput synthesis discovery workflows in the big multi -deca billion -dollar chemical companies would have made short work of this, would have optimized it very quickly. There would have been no barriers to, no meaningful barriers to commercialization because materials involved were so simple and so widely available that cooking them in a certain unique way is of no challenge whatsoever to the industry. So if there was even a possibility that this had once worked, that would have been game -changing, but it doesn't look that way, unfortunately. What is the general state of scientific research and peer reviews? Because there was a period, certainly post -COVID, where this has been hotly debated and the trust the science mean was spreading quite regularly with people just having vast doubts about peer -review studies and the peer -review process. What have you looked at into that, or is that just... Oh, there's a huge ongoing retraction scandal in the scientific world, and as we said in the piece, you know, peer review on its own doesn't mean that this is fundamentally accurate science. It still needs to be reproduced in other labs for it to really go from an observation to, say, an accepted theory or accepted experimental set of results. But the state of modern science is poor right now, and it's because it is performed by humans who are susceptible to the hype cycle, the need for funding.

A highlight from Erase PTSD Now! Dual Sympathetic Reset Procedure (DSRP) Removes Chronic Pain, Anxiety, & PTSD To The Pre-Trauma State - Dr. Eugene Lipov & Jamie Mustard
"All right, I'm here with Dr. Eugene Lipov and Jamie Mustard, best -selling authors of The Invisible Machine, the startling truth about trauma and scientific breakthrough. I'm sorry, a scientific breakthrough that can transform your life. Both pioneers in the area of dual sympathetic reset procedure. Guys, welcome to the show. Thanks for having us. Yeah, thank you so much for having us on. It's a pleasure to be here. Now, Dr. Lipov, I just finished your book just the other night, and I was just blown away at really how you kind of stumbled upon this procedure that's been going on since the early 1920s, but now it's like been revitalized. It seems like there's like this new resurgence of it, the Renaissance, if you will, of doing it again, and you're like the pioneer really spearheading that, and it just always blows me away. Like, that's great, but how did you get here? How did you get started and learn about this procedure being an anesthesiologist, I believe? I, thank you. Well, first of all, yes, I am definitely an anesthesiologist, for sure. Well, I would say it's not a resurgence. I think it's repurposing. What's new about it is we're repurposing the procedure for mental health. So typically anesthesiologists like, such as myself, who specialize in pain medicine, take care of pain medicine. So the history of the procedure was the first time Stelling -Ingdon block was ever done. That's one level injection here, 1926 for asthma. Since - What were they noticing, sorry to cut you off, but what were they noticing back in the 1920s that if you do a Stelling -Ingdon block here, and that's when you're pointing to the neck, for the people that are just listening to the audio, they may not be able to see, you're kind of pointing to the neck area. Are you, is that, would that be what I think is in the book is you talk about C3, the cervical spine, and C6 a lot. Is that kind of what you're talking about? And what was it doing for asthma back then? I don't even know how the correlation would be. That's a tremendous question. So, well, first of all, there are seven vertebrae in any mammal. Giraffe has seven, we have seven. So C7 is the bottom of the neck. C6 is right above it. C3 is almost up to the skull. So the standard technique was C6 or C7 Stelling -Ingdon block, one level. So they were doing it, they found that if you do an injection for asthma, it takes away asthma away. It's a really complicated reason. I actually wrote a paper on that a couple of years ago explaining a lot of the effects. It's crazy how that works, but that's outside this realm. Anyway, so we started doing it, we being anesthesiologists pain doctors. So as pain doctors, we have been doing Stelling -Ingdon blocks for arm pain, burning hand primarily since the forties. The first time I ever did the Stelling -Ingdon block was 1987 for CRPS or burning of the hand. And then, you know, I've been doing it for a number of years and then I had a patient that had hot flashes and we treated her hot flash using stellate. Actually, my brother came up with the concept because he thought, you know, hot flashes, everything is hot, burning hand, same thing. And I said - His brother's a physician, by the way, he's not a random guy that came up with the idea. He's a very smart dog. Anyway, we did the procedure and took away the hot flashes. We published and that worked well. Then Chicago Tribune came by to do a paper on me, basically saying how it's working. So they said, yes, it's working, but basically you're an incompetent hack because you don't know how, you don't know why it works, so you shouldn't be doing it. So I didn't disagree with that, shall we say. And they, what I tried to do is figure out why it worked for hot flashes. So I came across one paper from Finland where they were putting a throw card on the chest, putting the, moving the lung out of the way and clipping the nerves in the chest. And they were doing it for hand sweats. They found PTSD went away. So I wrote that paper and I thought, that's crazy how that works. I didn't, whatever. Anyway, so I looked at the anatomy. Turns chest out nerve goes to the neck nerve. From the neck it goes to the brain and that affects PTSD. So I called up my brother. I said, send me a patient's PTSD. He had one like that who was robbed at gunpoint and all type of bad things happened. Two months later, he was on his way to his psych ward. So we did an injection on the neck and his PTSD went away. That led to my first publication in 2008 and then that led to people following my work in Walter Reed, the Navy. I gave testimony in front of Congress and off we went. And then as we progressed, I'll give you more information later, but we found that when you do an injection two levels, C6 and C3, that's called DSR, dual sympathetic reset, because we're doing two levels inside of one that seems to be more effective. So that's our current latest and the greatest technique. Yeah, so amazing. I follow, you guys know my background and just I'm into this health. I'm into the biohacking. I understand a lot of this. And until reading your book, I never heard a DSR. And so I'm just so grateful that you are putting this out there so that more people in the world can learn. And I'm hoping that this podcast and many others will help promote it because it just, after reading your book, there's just so much transformation that can be done as you know, through just the PTSD or PTSD is referred to the book, the injury, because that's what it really is. Not a disorder for most people. It's an injury. And guess what? When you change the input that the body receives, the body can heal. It just needs the right input. And that's what you guys are doing. So yeah, so grateful. Can I tell about the PTSD thing, where that came from? Please. So there is an amazing psychiatrist out there. Thankfully, he's still alive, Frank Uggberg. He was number two man for NIMH, which is National Institute of Mental Health. He was part of the terminology development in 1980 for PTSD. So he came up with the term Stockholm syndrome. You may have heard of that. That's his terminology. So in 19, I think 2005 or 2006, he started to propagate this concept, PTSI, post -traumatic stress injury. Basically, if there is an emotional trauma, not physical trauma, no blow to the head, the brain changes. And we know that based on advanced scanners, such as PET scan and FMR, things like that. So when somebody says PTSD is invisible wound, my answer is you have the wrong scanner. If you have the right scanner, you'll be able to see it. Let me, can I comment on that? About Frank Uggberg, he coined the terms post -traumatic stress injury because post trauma creates a biological change in the body. Dr. Lipov in the early 2000s figured out a way to reset the body to the pre -trauma state in a simple outpatient procedure over one to two days. In 1970, Mr. Ockberg wrote a book with a bunch of Stanford scientists called Violence and the Struggle for Existence. Coretta Scott King did the forward to that book because it was two years after Martin Luther King was assassinated. And there's a chapter in that book called Biology and Aggression. And one of the things that they're proposing in that book, this is 50 years ago, is that we know that trauma is biological. And the reason we know is because if you traumatize an animal, a cat, a goat, a sheep, any animal, okay, it changes. It either gets very hostile or very timid. It's not, doesn't have a disorder. We've changed its biology. And, but they just didn't know how. So when, but Dr. Lipov with his dual sympathetic reset, he basically 35 years later, found that mechanism of what is causing that change towards timidity or aggression from trauma and the symptoms that make one act that way. And he's able to reset it in a simple outpatient procedure without drugs that is 85 to 90 % effective in the relief of the worst symptoms of post -traumatic stress. It's amazing. Jamie, and actually on your note, I was just thinking, and I can't remember if this, I've read so many books now, I'm getting them all mixed up, but I think maybe in the book you guys talk about, speaking of animals, if a duck or an animal gets stressed, right, they will shake, they shake because with the shaking actually pushes that stress out of the body. And I can't remember if it was your book or not, but they were talking about like, but if a duck or whatever they get in a fight, they'll just, they'll shake it off. And then they come right back into their clan or wherever they're at, and it's gone. They're back into it. But so I was just thinking about the whole biology, but you're right. We all think of this psychology, it's a psychological issue, it's a mental disorder. No, there's visible trauma, as you said, from Dr. Amen talking about spec scans and FMRIs and all those kinds of things. Yeah, I mean, you can see it on, I'll say this in my layman's terms, and then you can fix me. What Dr. Lipov is talking about is if you were using an FMR scan on somebody that has post -traumatic stress symptoms, feels it in their body, you would see overactivity in their amygdala, and you might see decreased blood flow to their frontal cortex, okay? So he goes in, he does this injection. It's the same $2 amount of anesthesia that goes into an epidural. So the pharmaceutical companies will never back it because you don't need to be dependent after you do this, right? And he basically, it's like rebooting a computer. He turns off the sympathetic nervous system with this anesthesia. It reboots 15 minutes later. It takes a few hours for it to wear off the day, but it really reboots about 15 minutes later. And when it comes back online, it comes back online at baseline, pre -trauma state. So what's really important about what you said earlier, Joel, about when you would talk about post -traumatic stress disorder or mental illness, is that's not what's going on when you see a traumatized person. When you see a traumatized person, you have a person with a broken leg you can't see. It is a physiological injury that we can now see and treat. And calling it a disorder or calling it mental illness, A, it's scientifically false, it's not true, and B, it's incredibly stigmatizing and it doesn't open up an opportunity for progress or fixing it. I believe that Dr. Lipov's innovation, he may, he'll find this incredibly, he's humble, but I think it is the most important medical innovation since the discovery of penicillin in 1928. In terms of the numbers, far more outweighs, if you look at how many people a year were saved by the polio vaccine in terms of lives lost, you might look at 50 ,000 people a year. If you look at people that do, even from the mildest forms of post -traumatic stress to suicidal ideation, you really, when we could talk about what the symptoms are, people that do this do not end up committing suicide. You know, the amount of lives saved from lack of suicide, less suicides alone, let alone all the various physical disease that's caused by the sympathetic nervous system being stuck in front of flight, the amount of lives saved by Dr. Lipov's innovation profoundly dwarfs even the polio vaccine. Well, so, hold on. So now I have to speak kind of medical science, right? I mean, that's essentially true. We don't have, I don't have, you know, if somebody asked me, it's like, show me the evidence, show me the evidence of success rates. So success rates are 80 to 90 % is about right.

"Speaking of Russia, let's get to another story that is out today. Pretty disturbing stuff. There's an attempt it seems by Russia to really frighten some of its neighboring countries.

"We are shining that light. And that's the only way this turns out well for us. Right. And I think that that's where we need to as Christians remember that that and we've said this before, our Salvation is not about our Salvation. It's about their Salvation because they need it.

And I think that that is a big misconception of freedom is there for them if they want it. Anybody who wants freedom, they can have it. Most certainly. Right. But there are procedures and protocols that have to be done. You don't have to, it's through the blood of the lamb, and by repentance, that the hostages are converted and saved. The devil knows his time is short, and he's angry about it, right? He knows he's playing for time. The Lake of fire is his. Sooner or later, he and every minion he has, and unfortunately every one who succumbs to the Stockholm syndrome and chooses his side. Because even in real life, people who have become to that syndrome, whenever they were released, they eventually got their most of them got their faculties back and they realized that they had been under duress. Right. Fear does some really crazy and very stupid things to us. Fear is a terrible toxic thing. And it causes us to do horrible rotten things.

That just kind of war stuff for stability policy but So this was theory because the negative rate. I'm never occurred. None of the european central bank decided that the war below the pedo rebound and of course the wolves opportunity to start the to cats. What actually happened. And the basically My were bound the paper so well. Many things work exactly So i you don't. We're bone what did we show. Is that One The european central bank started to communicate to the america and not only the policy rate is now negative but i will say negative for a while. Then banks assassinated the at least some bands the started to charge negative rates on their large of the politics and the larger depositors are see kelly corporation okay so that's And we document. So that's the bind so that the charge negative rates on the process bonds. So that's the have investment-grade rating a better view. Few non-performing loans. So does he used the hatchback. Is this surprising if you think of. It is not because then German not treasury bill adver negative raise and keeping the poses a healthy bond provides liquidity the same convenience for The holder is holding Safe treasury okay so basically we started documenting that sukur and then a we explore visible or mission mechanism. That works A bit differently. But we see an expansion meaning the the affirm that he's charged a negative raise only cash decides well for It's no longer time pilot. Cash holdings for the bad times and the stock investing more. So we documented use a paucity of fx the all the negative interest rate policies for the assigned. Yes so this is. This is a good thing right Negative interest rate would have the right behavior at essentially the flu investing more including cash. And that is what the plane to. Congress will monetary policy. You're you're also seeing that. Essentially assault bank heightened bank their policies are going to be the proxy sort of presley especially node behavior you invest negative interest on the treasury side than at pimple bank.

For the large depositors so corporations and say i was wondering about the retail arena that different ways the banks could charge a negative industries. They good they don't necessarily have to charge interest rate. they could just increase costs for services. Cost cash chicks. You know big on different things to do. Essentially get the same point.

It's very simple. We look at google searches about the gender equality feminism and so and basically The the google searches have been shown in different counters to really captured Our society is currently terry about an issue and then we ask do company respond and which company respond the more. Okay in principle. One might think about what he's society is changing breath the companies that are currently farther away from So said this society kaunda the responsible. Okay and what we find is that that is the contrary we have these long proxy for capturing the corporate culture towards gender equality. I'm not a be all night yet. G ray thing about the diversity other bet's on textual analysis that capture how home funny Seem to respect the differences between employees. And then we also use the political orientation all the executive team he power platform as the motor to gender equality Problem well we use the weather. There are a we money. The management team. I either project corporate culture. So i told him to hold these different process of what we see. Is that the companies. That's a week would classify the pro gender equality. You know the in which is More public attention seem point. Four women to the board while iowa companies are the add concern about the diversity policy from Making agencies or that a more of republican expect the pimm. They responded much less. That is a okay so it looks like for that reason no convergence we all salute at the precipice companies say the supply constraints when women are a high demand that they can chew and they go to call them funnies that by a culture that is more inclusive so when we at the characteristics all but that experts appointed that even in these fears of betty presumably very high demand for of many actors we We find that the bra that women the meaning that the we've been seem to continue to have The same characteristics of the has imperial below demand.

So funded send this correctly. So is that ex-ante culture matters and so you think you have directed appointments. Generally higher abnormal announced number turns.

Well, I'll tell you, the researchers at Harvard under the leadership of Dr David Sinclair. This is what they found Caloric restriction eating less slows the pace of aging. That's pretty darn impressive and what they found in laboratory studies of animals is that extended life span and it appeared that caloric restriction eating less food than you're eating right now, by a certain percentage increases your longevity. You live longer. It increases the activity. What we call a longevity gene. They get switched on. They help improve metabolism. It increases your ability to cope your ability to adapt.

And this is exactly why resveratrol has been making all these worldwide headlines because if it works in humans, as it does in these animals, and I'm optimistic it will.

Mario Draghi Is Asked to Form Government in Italy
"We begin. Today in italy where mario draghi. The former chief of the european central bank has been invited by at least president cemetery to form a unity government following the collapse of the coalition talks among italy's political parties late last night in rome. The political tumult in italy was sparked by the resignation of his prime minister. Giuseppe comtesse last week and a little earlier today. A europe editor at large at stalker gave us this. Rundown of how events unfolded in rome after those coalition talks broke down yesterday evening now after that happened the president mattino della addressed tv cameras and said basically. There were two options. One would be go to early elections. That would be two years early. Because i not scheduled till twenty twenty three or he could cool together at this technocrat government. Basically an institutional government made up of known politicians. Now the reason. He said he's going to do. This is because italy is really into difficult situation. There's a health crisis and economic crisis financial crisis he. He basically listed a host of reasons. Why it would be a bad decision to call early. Elections the fact that the government wouldn't be executing its food functions during campaigning. The fact that everyone would be out on the streets trying to win votes at stockholm articles. Europe editor at large speaking to us from milan a little earlier today at kiara as described italy's president has effectively removed the politics from italy's government by instituting the so-called technocratic government. How remarkable to give a bit of a longer view on this or a move. Is this in the recent history of italian politics. and what do you foresee the political implications. I suppose of this move might be in italy in the months to come well thomas. I think it's an interesting way to put it. That president material has removed the politics from this because yes he is proposing technocrat but i think his decision is very shrewd political. Move actually You know we've talked on a monocle minute about the importance of the role of montana. And all of this you know. We focused a lot about squabbles between different parties and former prime ministers and future prime ministers. And what's going to be but actually at centro vitale is president. La la la who has made a very very intelligent move in completely. You know upending. Everybody's expectations and bringing mario draghi to the table. This is a name that a lot of parties will find difficult to say no to but that certain parties will feel almost impossible to approve and in order to understand that you have to know a little bit about the background of the last ten years of italian. Politics really is a long game. The relevance of this moment actually goes back almost a decade and it goes back to. Mario monti's government in twenty eleven ha de italian history of technocratic governments and how relation feels about them. It goes back to the fact that it's virtually the rise of the technocratic government supported by establishment. Parties sent left center right to the essentially boyd. The extreme success of movements like moving five stars the moon five stars was born out of dissatisfaction with the establishment and establishment is the pd. The establishment is better screenings party and is the technocrats the people coming from europe who are immediately resonate with this idea of steady and finance and banks. Which doesn't actually go down very well done throat of italians that were really really badly scarred by the financial crisis i think when you look at the last decade of italian politics you look at a real series of governments to have an lasted very long and remote qabli. A lot of them governments that were directly elected by the people. You know we've had technocratic governments we've had really you know we've had coalition governments where you know the majority of was really really tight whack. Coalition talks went on for ages. We've had internal betrayals and you know people come to the fore. Even though they hadn't really been selected by a popular vote. So i think what this might do for the overall mood of of the population is bring back all those feelings off just simply not really having a political choice in all of this and may actually give more fire to all of these populist parties that made their fortune out of the situation like this in the past and if we do come to early elections which has not yet. A possibility is completely off the cards. It may actually paying favor in on those populist parties which we saw in coalition government a couple of years ago three years ago. Now but that never expressed a proper. I guess prime minister political prime minister. Let's remember that the content much as we think about it now as appropriate political figure he was also a lawyer by profession. He was chosen by the moving five stars as a relatively neutral name. That would put together a coalition between moving and lega. But we haven't really had a party leader as prime minister in quite a long

She answered build a space station and they did. The town was killing and by the way it's within the arctic circle now the space station up and running and doing fine. The next challenge is moving the whole city. And that's what the sign show is about today. And how you move buildings and thousands of people and do so in the lapland. Guide is an homes who lives in sweden and once reported for sbs and there are many stakeholders involved in extraordinary project of moving the city of corona the iron ore mine elke ab municipality the government the politicians the urban planners the architects and other experts and not least the people and all their say but there is one major participant. That is absolutely instrumental in making. The kid and i moved project at all possible. And that's the royal institute of technology in store co. and that's where you come in professor cars. Yes i've been a professor at the institute for a very long time and by chance i met the mail you care not in two thousand twelve and we started discussing urban planning and then i suddenly got an invitation to move to cure now to take responsibility for making a plan for the new. The city had to be relocated due to the fact that the iron or production demanded removal of the city. How did it all start them. Start with the mayor and what she saw as urgent was to make a plan that met the expectations of the residents. Because when you are forcing people to leave their homes they expect something. Really good as a replacements. You said you have to work taking something very attractive and so you are in a very short period of time because we are in russia time wise and then what happened. I'm urban planning urban planner. All my life doing theoretical work in this was. I just couldn't say no to so i immediately pack my bags and move here now. Yes but how did you decide that that was necessary. Did you decide that. He wasn't enough sitting in your office. No no theoretical stuff. No now the challenge to do this all in practice and doing it in reality of course demands are in place to meet was so important to meet with all these stakeholders not least to meet and socialize with the residents of care in order to really make sure that would i create in. My plan was something that met their expectations about the out for me on the new city. How was it to move from a capital in sweden. And your job to small town above the arctic circle t different worlds different two different worlds. I mean the first thing was that whether is so different. So i came up. I was met by snow. Snow snow and darkness. This was the winter and it was freezing cold. And he's a little town very few restaurants very few cultural activities. How did that feel. It felt strange but immediately realized that in order to make this feasible and enjoying myself. I need to socialize with people and people took me for snow. Mobile rides to out fishing of walking in the mountains and became a part of cultural life in catering. I gather that you quiet. Almost rock star status after a while now and not drugstore status but became very familiar. Face here's the guy who is removing the with any animosity from people. in general. the first reaction was here. Comes this guy from stockholm. He's going to make our planet size that he's awesome academic with provides Even more skepticism. But as i met with people is behind our dialogues about new city and they saw plans for the new city merging. They became more and more positive positive. So walking from the office to my home recalls a twenty minute walk. I could very often meet with. Oh the new seat the town square. We saw the town square. It looks so nice or people say oh wonderful that you're rains parking for snow as we need that
