Ok guys, controversy time. I’ve powered through all the Medical Medium podcasts in the last few days. I was a skeptic at first, like anything I ever read/hear/research. But this podcast has really opened my eyes to new supplements, fruits, vegetables and herbs to study. I’m still a little bit torn up on some of the things he says but it has spurred me on toward further research, which in my opinion is always beneficial! If you haven’t listened, give it a try and maybe it will help drive you towards new information to study also. 💚✌🏼🌸
My mother died of cancer. From 1991 to 1996 I watched how #rhodeisland#hospitals and #doctors and not #cancer tore her apart for 5 years before she eventually died. It bothers me but i am ok with it. I don't blame the Rhode Island doctors, I don't blame the Rhode Island hospitals, and I don't blame cancer either. This human society is habitual and some know what habits to stay away from and others are left in the dark. That is not freedom in my opinion. It is a zoo for the caged animals. I think about motorcycles, ceramics, art, design, and engineering and everything else when I have time. If you don't eat right you don't heal fast enough, if you don't eat right you don't heal. So I post this idea. Dear #doctors of america. I've read a lot of things. Maybe you should research more about #organicsilica read about how plants grow taller, healthier and fuller of life and really really really question why in this country of #america we don't put a priority on making it aware to the public.

“agricultural footprints have been responsible for deforestation, soil erosion, and surface water degradation. We do not have the luxury of suspending the present food system while we develop a better one. Instead, we must make incremental changes while continuing to provide sustenance to the world’s population, one meal at a time.” ~ beautifully stated // Advances in Nutrition Journal research article published in 2016
there is so much that we do agree on when it comes to sustainability, and now more than ever it is imperative we focus on how we can move forward to foster a healthier global community + planet. without a healthy planet, there can never be healthy people. Period. 🌱🌎
Have you seen the app by @nasa ?
There are some great images in the app including this image...
In this schlieren image, an Air Force Test Pilot School T-38 is shown in a transonic state, meaning the aircraft is transitioning from a subsonic speed to supersonic. Above and beneath the aircraft, shockwaves are seen starting to form. These shockwaves propagate away from the aircraft and are heard on the ground as a sonic boom. NASA researchers use this imagery to study these shockwaves as part of the effort to make sonic booms quieter, which may open the future to possible supersonic flight over land.

After photographing and painting the species and producing the actual stickers, the next step in creating a new Coyote Brush Studios sticker set is research! I love digging through books, both new and old, to learn more about each of the species. Where and how they grow, how they fit into their unique communities, and what they’ve meant to different peoples over time. Then this information is compiled and shared in the form of fun facts on the back of each package!
“Although the science is still evolving, there are concerns among some public health professionals and members of the public regarding long-term, high use exposure to the energy emitted by cell phones,” states California’s Public Health Officer, Dr. Karen Smith. “We know that simple steps, such as not keeping your phone in your pocket and moving it away from your bed at night, can help reduce exposure for both children and adults.”
SPOTTED! 🔍We have been seeing plenty of Cook's Petrels this month whilst they are here for the breeding season. 🐥🐥 There are only two breeding populations in NZ - the Hauraki Gulf & Codfish Island. Outside of the breeding season they migrate to the waters off of Baja California and North of Hawaii.
•Adenomyosis is when the muscle wall or myometrium of the uterus is affected by disease. (Uterine lining growing where it shouldn’t be growing)
•Endometriosis is when everything else outside of the uterus is affected by growing tissue that is similar to uterine lining. •Some women have adenomyosis •Some women (to be exact 1 out of 10) have Endometriosis •Some women have both. Studies show that about 12% of women with adenomyosis have Endometriosis but bc it is difficult to truly diagnose adenomyosis the percentage is off. Another study I read says 40-50% of women with adenomyosis have endometriosis. •Other studies show that 1-5 women who are diagnosed with Endometriosis after age 30 have adeno or are at risk for it. •Endometriosis is diagnosed by laparoscopic surgery
•Adenomyosis can only be truly diagnosed by biopsy after hysterectomy but detailed ultrasounds can show signs of it with uterus thickness and then an MRI gives a better picture with 85% accuracy of chance of adenomyosis. •Endometriosis has NO cure as of yet.
•Adenomyosis can only be cured by hysterectomy
I have both. Yippee. Call me an over achiever. Excision surgery of endometriosis helped a lot last year but I still had so much pain and flares and tremendous leg nerve pain. My doctors were pretty sure I had adeno before I had excision but since adeno can have no symptoms we thought let’s see what happens. I have the mirena coil which is a treatment for adeno but the pain has been too much so Mri in November showed enlarged uterus and signs of diffuse adenomyosis.
I am done. I decided on the hysterectomy. I’m counting down til surgery day, Jan 25. Dear #endosisters if you have pain after excision also find out if there is a chance of adenomyosis too. The symptoms are similar but different.
Love all you strong ladies! 💪🏼
If you don't work after work, what are you really doing??

(2/3) "At that time, I was still supervising undergrads, I’ve always done that as soon as I arrived in the U.S. I’ve even supervised a high school student. On my Science paper, I have a science student. Her mom was a secretary in another department, in astronomy, and I had met her at a party at Caltech. And the mom said, “oh, my daughter is finishing school super early and I work up to 6, do you have something for her?” I was like, “no,” but I really liked her mom, I really liked Judith, and so I said: “okay, let’s give it a chance.” I told Antha: “you’re just going to shadow the other students here, I have nothing for you.” But then she started coming with excellent questions. She said, “why do you feed the fly that kind of brown pudding? They’re fruit flies, shouldn’t they eat fruit?” I was: “uh, yeah maybe? Come back with a protocol to test that.” And she did! She did test the longevity of flies fed on our “pudding” and banana. It was really good, so I started having her more and more involved in my research and she really played a role working on steroids. We’re still in touch, she’s at Seattle. She stopped doing Biology and she’s working in a web development company, so she went more into computers and stuff like that. I’m keeping in touch with a lot of the students." #humansofbiology

I have tons of videos, from my time in San Gerardo de Dota, I can’t get much edited or uploaded yet, but here’s a short clip of a male Resplendent Quetzal, this individual regularly flew in at eye level. Truly something I wasn’t expecting to see, eye level looks at Resplendent Quetzals, I had been more familiar with the long distance looks, offered in areas like Monteverde. So if you’re looking for the best looks at Quetzals, head to San Gerardo de Dota, it will not disappoint. @audubonsociety

Back at it with some more fluorescent studies! #grinding
The Talamanca Hummingbird, a species I’ve wanted to see for sometime, they’re abundance in San Gerardo de Dota was overwhelming, they were easily the most numerous species. They’re one of the largest species in Costa Rica, males sport this amazing purple crown, with a blue gorget, often displaying the purple when fighting with another male. @audubonsociety
