    EP: 223 Island of Spirits *members only trailer

    enFebruary 27, 2024

    Podcast Summary

    • The Spiritual World in Traditional SocietiesThe spiritual world significantly influences every aspect of life in traditional societies, including health, warfare, and seeking revenge, and the belief in vengeful gods remains deeply ingrained in the culture.

      In traditional societies, such as those found in Papua New Guinea, the spiritual world plays a significant role in every aspect of life. The spiritual leaders, or gods, were believed to be instrumental in maintaining the health of people and their crops, providing guidance in physical warfare, and seeking revenge. Men would undergo initiation rituals, including circumcision, to become part of their father's clan and rid themselves of their mother's clan's influence. The elders of the clan were responsible for setting up ceremonies and seeking the gods' blessings for various endeavors. The gods were also believed to be vengeful and would provide "bad juice" to help their followers take revenge or steal territory from enemy clans. Even though the physical manifestations of these spiritual practices have disappeared, the worldview that revolves around the spirit world remains deeply ingrained in the culture and continues to shape their perspective on life. This week on Blurry Creatures Podcast, we had the privilege of hearing Jonesy's stories from his 20-year experience living in Papua New Guinea.

    EP: 240 Wormholes with Ashton Forbes
    We welcome back Ashton Forbes to embark on a journey through the speculative realms of wormhole technology. Ashton has led the investigation into the missing Malaysian flight MH370; his most recent conclusions are startling. Forbes believes that the video and satellite evidence and the physics of the perceived phenomena surrounding the last minutes of Flight 370 may suggest the missing plane encountered a wormhole, a hypothetical tunnel through spacetime, leading to its mysterious disappearance. Ashton makes a great case that this science explains exactly why we cannot find the vanished aircraft. What are the implications? Why do so many people refuse to accept that elites may control this technology? What does the science say about the plausibility of manmade wormholes? Squatchella.com for LIVE TICKETS!

    Rich Morris: Lead Drone - Broodminder - (S2, E02)

    Rich Morris is a beekeeper and electrical engineer whose passion and career combined to produce Broodminder.  Broodminder is a set of battery powered sensors and scale that provide insights to beekeepers on the changes within their monitored hives. The sensors include separate devices for temperature, temperature and humidity, and weight and (external) temperature.  While this is interesting information on a hive by hive basis, the real power of the data is when it is combined, tracked and monitored across regions or even countries. Rich and Broodminder are achieving this through their beecounted.org website.

    In this podcast, Jeff and Kim talk to Rich about Broodminder, beecounted.org, their beginnings, and future. It is an interesting discussion and a peek at one tool useable in today's beekeeping management approach.

    HIV/AIDS patients burdened by emotional baggage of shame

    HIV/AIDS patients burdened by emotional baggage of shame
    http://www.thegrio.com/2009/09/shamed-to-silence-war-against-hivaids.php According to data from the CDC, at the end of 2007, blacks accounted for almost half of the 1.1 million people living with HIV in America. Marline Hines works at New York City's oldest minority AIDS service organization, Faces, where she leads a women's support program called the Asha Project. Four hundred women have already passed through this program, which aims to help women address the emotional baggage that comes with the virus. The most common feeling? Shame. "Even in the process of role playing, they can't say it," Hines said. "Even though I'm not their daughter, it's hard for them to just say 'I'm positive.'" It's that kind of shame and secrecy that filmmaker Claudia Pryor witnessed while making the documentary, Why Us? Left Behind and Dying. "I learned that our internal secrecy and shame absolutely drives this in our community," Pryor told theGrio in a sit-down interview. "And probably the biggest thing I learned is that underlying that is a self-hatred and self-denigration that makes us feel that we are unworthy of being projected," Pryor said. "Why Us?" follows a group of inner-city Pittsburgh students as they investigate why HIV rates are so high in black communities. The students interviewed leading experts, people with the infection in their neighborhood, and activists, all while having their reactions to the study monitored. Tamira Noble is the narrator and was one of the students involved in the study. While working on this project, Noble learned that secrets hit close to home. "I didn't think I knew anyone with HIV, so it wasn't very personal," Noble said. "It became personal when I got involved because then all of these secrets started spilling from my own family. And that's when I found out that I had an uncle that died of HIV/AIDs. His name was Edward. I had never heard of him until I had started on this project. Then I found out one of my cousin also has HIV/AIDs and I wasn't even allowed to know this cousin until I joined this project." Keeping secrets under wraps is something Hines says is a value the black community has upheld for generations. "Black people has a culture that is southern, that is old-fashioned," Hines said. "What's said in the house, stays in the house." But those involved in getting the word out hope that despite this deep-seated tradition, their community will take ownership of their personal safety and get tested. "Just want people to see the film and get tested," Noble said. "I mean, if everyone could look it and learn something from it that's good. But if people learn from it and get tested then I've accomplished what we were trying to do.

    Encore SALSA: San Antonio’s “Secret Sauce” to Promoting Successful Aging

    Encore SALSA: San Antonio’s “Secret Sauce” to Promoting Successful Aging
    Most of us are well acquainted with salsa—the spicy mixture of tomato and chili sauce we enjoy with tortilla chips at Mexican restaurants and at parties with friends. But now we can learn about another kind of SALSA—no, not the Latin dance, but a zesty Texas-based initiative known as Successful Aging and Living in San Antonio—SALSA, for short. In today’s episode, we talk with Jane Paccione, the Managing Director of Collective Impact for the San Antonio Area Foundation, which created SALSA with the mission of transforming the community by advancing practices that improve the quality of life of older adults. A passionate and insightful advocate, Jane will explain how SALSA “brings everyone to the table”—connecting businesses, nonprofits, and government entities—thus creating a movement that turns collaboration into “collective impact,” an approach that is more likely to solve complex problems. She’ll describe the work of SALSA partners on issues such as housing, transportation, social engagement, health, and caregiver support. She’ll also talk about “Reframing Aging,” a key national initiative designed to change the narrative about what aging means, combat ageist stereotypes and language, and improve the public’s understanding of the many ways that older people contribute to our society.
