Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin As part of the legendary Grateful Dead, drummer Mickey Hart has built his more than 50-year career on uplifting others through music. And now, at a time when there has never been a greater need for healing, Hart is as busy as ever, knowing his music is necessary. Having just wrapped up a tour with Dead & Company, where he got to witness tens of thousands of fans joined together on a nightly basis, he has immediately turned his attention to rhythmic unity through a new Planet Drum album. Into The Groove finds Hart uniting with Zakir Hussain, Giovanni Hidalgo and Sikiru Adepoju to showcase the power of the rhythm. The album leads off with the single "King Clave," which Planet Drum shared in a special video with charity organization Playing For Change. I spoke with Hart about how Tito Puente changed his life, the recent Dead & Company tour, the power of music and much more.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin On August 4th, the Biden Administration declared monkeypox a public health emergency. The announcement comes on the heels of the World Health Organization declaring monkeypox a public health emergency of international concern in July. This implies monkeypox poses a global public health risk through international spread, which requires a coordinated international response. In the U.S., prior to the Biden Administration’s declaration, a number of municipalities and even several states - California, Illinois, and New York - had declared monkeypox a public health emergency. More than 27,600 monkeypox cases have been reported across 87 countries. With approximately 8,300 confirmed cases, the U.S. comprises 30% of confirmed infections worldwide. Furthermore, test positivity is very high in the U.S., which reflects undertesting. A Public Health Declaration allows the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to take … [Read more...] about Implications Of Monkeypox Being Declared A Public Health Emergency In U.S.
There’s a critical error conservatives are repeatedly making in their fight against Big Tech. A multi-front war has been opened by conservatives, who are fighting legally, economically and culturally against Big Tech censorship and regulation. Former President Donald Trump is suing Facebook, Twitter and Google, lawmakers are passing new bills to try and crack down on censorship and private businessmen are trying to create alternatives to the borderline-monopolies that exist in the social media space. Some of these tactics are more likely to work than others. Some legal experts have provided dim outlooks for Trump’s lawsuit or the kinds of laws being passed in Florida by Republicans, for instance. The business world should, theoretically, be an area where conservatives can thrive, though. So why is it that Republican alternatives to the likes of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have largely underwhelmed and failed to gain serious, mainstream traction? Some, like Parler and Rumble, … [Read more...] about ANALYSIS: Conservatives Need To Stop Making One Critical Mistake Fighting Big Tech
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Genetic testing once was offered only to people with rare genetic conditions, or strong family histories of disease that spanned generations. But genetic testing is now being offered to healthy people, to detect if they carry a genetic change (often referred to as a “variant” or “mutation”) that may place them at high risk to develop preventable conditions, including some cancers and cardiac conditions. In theory, population genetic testing makes sense. Instead of waiting for a person to die of a heart attack at a young age, we can learn of some of those risks ahead of time and mitigate them. This approach works not only for the person having testing and their family members – who may also be at risk – but also for our medical system, employers, and overarching health care costs that we, as a society, want to minimize. But in practice, are we there yet? Cristi’s story illustrates that we still have a long way to go to … [Read more...] about Population Genetic Testing: Save Lives And Money, While Avoiding Financial Toxicity
Aceron in “Scorpio Nights 3” For Gold Aceron, having a romantic relationship shouldn’t be a hindrance to his plan of becoming an accomplished artist, especially since the young actor has recently taken the “sexy route” by appearing in the third remake of the erotic thriller series “Scorpio Nights.” Gold said he would encourage his girlfriend to watch Law Fajardo’s “Scorpio Nights 3,” which features Christine Bermas as his leading lady. “I would tell her, ‘You have to be ready to see projects like this because this is what I do for a living.’ The problem is, I don’t have a girlfriend anymore,” he told Inquirer Entertainment during a recent virtual media gathering. “Just the same, this person who I will eventually choose to become my life partner should understand and fully accept the kind of work that I do. I don’t think this should be difficult, especially when we put importance on communication. Lahat nadaraan sa mabuting usapan,” Gold pointed out.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin This is part two of a series focusing on cognitive dysfunction and inflammation. The first article can be read here . For additional writings on inflammation and Covid-19, please see my website: www. williamhaseltine.com Although inflammation is a common feature of many infections, viral and otherwise, SARS-CoV-2 elicits a particularly intense inflammatory response. Exactly why remains unclear. What is becoming increasingly clear, on the other hand, is that much of the damage associated with Covid-19 can be traced back to this hyperinflammation. This holds true both in the short term, during acute infection, as well as the long term, during Long Covid, or Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS CoV-2 infection (PASC). Cognitive impairments such as “brain fog”, difficulty concentrating, and poor short-term memory make up some of the more worrying Long Covid symptoms. Often, these are severe enough to interfere with daily … [Read more...] about Even Mild Covid-19 May Cause Lasting Brain Fog (Part 1)
