8 year old Martin Richard was killed at the Boston Marathon. His younger sister and his mother remain seriously injured. Join us in helping the Richards along their road to recovery.
"Bauman was “severely affected” by the blast after an explosive devise detonated right next to where he stood watching the marathon. Despite his serious condition, Bauman managed to describe the suspect, who later turned out to be of the Tsarnaev brothers, immediately upon gaining consciousness in intensive care."
After my interview with Gary Wilson, and my subsequent reading/exploration at his site I have decided internet porn has no place in my life.
I am also attempting to understand the best approach to manage this for my sons as they come up in an entirely strange 'wired up' reality.
Wish us all luck.
Would you consider forgoing internet porn?
Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA -- in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where "the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys."

Seems I stand alone in questioning The Cleveland Clinic and their nutrition recommendations. In this case we're looking at heart health.
'The Clinic' (as it is known wherever they are found) had a Twitter chat session hashtag #CCHeart, where they provided everyone with an opportunity to ask questions of their highly regarded heart specialists.
I'm posting the question I asked, and the reply from Dr. Nissen.
Understand this, Dr. Nissen is no run of the mill general practitioner, he is the Cardiovascular Medicine Department Chair at The Cleveland Clinic. He co-authored the book Heart 411 (which I have previosuly tweeted and blogged).
Here's our brief interaction in 2 tweets:
Dr. Nissen dismisses my question by referring to Neanderthals, which are some 30,000 years extinct, and a wholly different species than humans.
Is there no hope in utilizing evolutionary biology in understanding what best honors an optimal human diet?
I am surmising Dr. Nissen does not believe in evolution. If he did, he would surely believe that the biology of humans has been exposed to, affected by, and is a result of the evolutionary process.
I for one believe there are foods better optimized for human health, and they should be consumed in proportions drastically different than those proposed by The Cleveland Clinic.
I have so much more to say here, but I am such a poor writer and have little passion or enthusiasm for this type of writing especially so.
If you have an opinion, or facts of relevance please share! Comments are open to any and all.
Addiction is the broken part of me that sticks, best. It aids all my fears, hostilities, and discomforting nervous tensions. What a perfect compliment to my fractured mind!
I love drinking and smoking cigarettes. I've been up and down and covered the entire road map with these 2 demons. These assholes are the shittiest life companion road mates I could have possibly picked up. And yet, fact remains, there they are, being fuck heads in the back seat of this shit mobile every fucking where I go. The simplest of life's pleasures escape me because these 2 dickheads finger paint with shit all over my peace.
You know, I can't even enjoy the company of a dear friend. Had company come to town to stay the weekend awhile back and I could not deal with the continuous company, had to escape at night, go outside, build a fire, listen to my ear budded iDongle and chain smoke. Couldn't simply enjoy the company of a dear friend I sorely miss in my life. No, hide away in boozy headed smoked lung fear, far removed from anything resembling comforting kindness. So, to these 2 back seat assholes I say: Fuck you. Get out now.
You know what? No, hold on a second... Let me speed up a bit, I'm gonna get this wagon going flat out full speed and shove these assholes out the door. If not, I fear our misguided night drives will slam us into a tree soon. What's sadder is that I know how it works for me. I don't even get the easy out tree collision fly through window decapitation & impalement high contrast bright loud violent death scene. I get: car limps around broken guard rail, nestles into the river banks thicket, stuck and silent, with a slow bleed, full consciousness, paralysis and a wasting starvation.
So. let me kick these 2 shit heads out the door now while I'm hauling ass on the road. Even if my life's top sped is 18MPH.
Lost my train of thought, I don't save drafts or work on writing, so, publish it is. Wonder how long this current mindset of demon freedom will last, my best guess, about 10 hours.
My wife mentioned to me that some people I know were debating a Paleo/Primal/LCHF diet on Facebook. Can't say I'm interested in joining the debate. I was bothered some when asked if I had any blood work done to verify my results. Suddenly I matter so very much! What a laugh.
People die trying new things. People also die because of dogma, especially dietary/health/nutrition dogma. What's a person to do? Research? Experiment? Announce your intention to do so in the social media landscape and prepare to hear alarms of your premature demise.
And so you may go on and attempt to maintain (or in most cases) regain 'health'. Note that the measures of health (blood work for example) are tainted by the dogmatic false flag interpretation of these numbers. As an example: What is an ideal cholesterol panel? What would those numbers be? Well, I assure you the official line on cholesterol is far off the mark, and completely misrepresenting the role of cholesterol. It should be pointed out that in one study women with the highest measured cholesterol lived longest, women with the lowest died soonest, but of course even this is correlation, not causation.
I have seen some reported 'horror stories' about individual dietary results used to dissuade others from attempting a new path, well, this is mostly shit into the fan. I'm seeing individuals that had poor results held up as proof of the dangers of dietary changes, and at the same time individuals with fantastic results are chalked up as mere anecdotes.
Seems a damn army of anecdotes has emerged from the Paleo/Primal movement, many are here to represent and reclaim the heritage of some seemingly lost cultural past; from the foods we eat to the communities we build and share. Cultural foods tell the story of human health and wellness. Corporate 'foods' demonize humanity and the natural world, all while bearing the torch of some imaginary scientific nutritional completeness.
Evolutionary and cultural lenses/templates reveal a greater truth and I recommend all to investigate further.
Well, as this is a rant I post it as is. I can't bare to read it through or edit the damn thing.
My show is back in the iTunes store, but with a new address.
Please rate and review!
- To my previous reviewers- Just copy and paste your old review for ease of laziness! (click here for the old dead show link)
Currently contemplating new episodes but nothing in the works just yet. We've had some setbacks at the homestead, just about to reboot on the home front.
So, I'm not in actuality 'back in action', but nearly so.
Hey folks, if you're looking for the new RSS feed for my show (Doc Fermento Discovers The World) it's here:
Question is- What to do with an RSS feed? Depends really. If you're on an iPhone try clicking the link and see what happens, on my phone the Podcasts app opens up and asks me if I want to subscribe to the show, heck yes I do.
What happens on your iPhone?
If you use some other podcatcher, throw the link in there and see what happens. It's still a bit wonky and not working quite the way I'd like it too. Hang in there with me.
If you're actually using a computer, I wonder how you might use the link? I have some ideas, let me know what works for your RSS feeds.
Here's one suggestion if you are on a computer and using iTunes:
Copy this link: http://askbryan.com/thepodcast/rss.xml > Open iTunes > Click 'Advanced' in the menu bar > Click 'Subscribe to podcast' > Paste in the link you copied. Let me know how this works for you.
My show is still available on cached servers/podcatchers like Stitcher.
Stitcher is currently offering a promo/chance to win a $100 Cash Card. Not bad.
Sign up for Stitcher and my show get's $1. Yes $1. Not only that, but the instructions are a bit odd, you have to tell Stitcher where you heard about the app, while installing/registering the app, and it has to be the correct code. I dunno, but my show is there! And that's nice. And this (I believe) is the code: DocFermento
Here's the web link: http://www.stitcher.com/DocFermento
The process is so Non-Intuitive they've created instructions! A damn iPhone doesn't even come with instructions, you just turn it on and go, well, look, anyway, here are the instructions:
Let me know what you discover after clicking around with this nonsense.
"I wrote Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation (Tarcher-Penguin,2011) because I simply had to.Transcendental Meditation (TM) had done so much good both for my patients and myself, had such strong research backing, and was so pleasant and easy to do that I felt the urge to share these experiences as seen through the eyes of a doctor, scientist and TM practitioner. The infographic below is brought to you as a resource and extension of the book “Transcendence,” which features some of the main points about Transcendental Meditation that I highlighted in the book." -Norman Rosenthal MD
I find this offensive and tragic.
