Fear vs Hope – The Power To Heal Is Yours!
Adding hope to health messages may motivate better behaviors While fear about health
concerns may grip people, adding a little hope to a message might make people more willing to take preventative actions, according to researchers. In two studies, hope and self-efficacy—the belief that a person can help themselves—significantly predicted intentions to take actions against skin cancer, such as wearing sunscreen or protective clothing. “With health messages, it’s not enough just to tell people, or merely educate them, you need to motivate them, and emotions are really good motivators,” said Jessica Myrick, associate professor of communications, Penn State. “We often think of emotions as irrational, but what our research is pointing to is that emotions can help us do the things that will keep us healthy and safe, so it’s important to understand the broad scope of emotional responses to different type of messages and messaging components.”
Special Guest – Dave Herman!

After 25 years as a Hotel Executive and Mortgage and Investment banker, Dave retired and began working in the nonprofit arena.

The American Kratom Association is a grassroots advocacy organization with a large amount of factual data to support our efforts to keep kratom legal, as well as representing millions of kratom consumers in the US.
As many of you know, we just announced that nine noted scientists, working with the American Kratom Association (AKA), authored a letter to President Trump’s White House Opioid Crisis Team Leader Kellyanne Conway and Acting DEA Administrator Robert W. Patterson.
In their letter, the scientists called out the FDA directly for their use of “bad science” when determining the safety profile of kratom.
And that’s why you and I must demand they disregard the FDA’s latest disinformation campaign against kratom.
Please take a few moments and sign the petition to demand the President and Ms. Conway help protect the freedom of consumers to make their own choices about their health and well-being and to stop the criminalization of kratom.
There are organizations across the United States and within the Federal Government working day and night to criminalize kratom.
They don’t care about the truth, the science, or the disastrous impacts banning kratom would have on millions of Americans.
Below is the text of the petition being sent to President Trump and Ms. Conway:
PETITION TO PRESIDENT TRUMP AND KELLYANNE CONWAY
We the undersigned ask for your immediate action to protect the freedom of consumers to make their own health care decisions, and stop the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from their broad regulatory overreach and the criminalization of millions of Americans who use kratom.
Kratom is a safe herbal supplement that is used by Americans to manage their health and well-being. Many have found kratom to be an effective alternative pain management therapy to dangerously addictive and deadly opioids. Leading scientists have concluded that banning kratom will create an unsafe kratom black market, and force kratom users who manage acute or chronic pain to deadly opioids and will lead to increased opioid deaths in America.
Mr. President, we ask that you direct the FDA and the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to research how kratom can best be used as both an alternative pain management therapy, and as a potential step-down from opioid addiction; and direct the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to return the proposed scheduling recommendation for kratom to the FDA and NIDA for those additional studies — and leave those Americans who use kratom for their personal health and well-being alone!
Once you sign this petition, please forward this email to friends, family and even neighbors. Even if they are not a kratom consumer, please try to get their help in supporting this petition.
It is only because of your continued support that we are able to keep fighting to protect kratom. Thank you for your immediate action today.

Olympic Outrage or Overreaction?
Olympics: German Figure Skater Slammed for Skating to ‘Schindler’s List’ Score Social media erupted with criticisms when German figure skater Nicole Schott began performing to the Schindler’s List score during her free skate performance at the Olympics on Thursday night.”Nicole Schott is a German woman skating to Schindler’s List. that feels real fucked up #Olympics,” one user wrote. “NO ONE SHOULD BE SKATING TO SCHINDLER’S LIST!!!!!!!” USA Today columnist Nancy Armour added. “The German skater picking the Schindler’s List soundtrack to skate to is certainly a choice,” Defense News reporter Aaron Mehta said.
Hour 2 – Wait…NBC News Said What?
Why next year’s flu vaccine will be lousy, too Work started this week on next season’s flu vaccine, with experts working off forecasts about which strains of the influenza virus will be making the rounds. But flu experts are already admitting that most vaccines will give at best mediocre protection, because they’re based on outdated technology. It’s not a new problem, but one that the slow-moving world of drug and vaccine production seems helpless to improve upon. “You can’t change on the drop of a dime,” said Scott Hensley of the University of Pennsylvania, an influenza virus expert.
Comments of The Day!
I have been trying to find a definite answer to the question, IS CBD OIL TOTALLY LEGAL? I just found out THiS is a grey area. I work for an agency that oversees Intelligently Disabled people (that is the pc word this year) and am trying to help a client ease off Abilify by using CBD oil. Because monetary support comes from the state and FEDERAL govt, my agency is telling us he cannot use CBD because it is not federally legal.
After much digging, I have found out that the Feds have recognized CBD derived from Hemp as legal but if it is derived from Cannabis, then no, it is not legal.
This past Monday, the FEDS tried a case in Tennessee trying to figure out how to classify CBD, but unfortunately for my client, they will be making a firm decision on this topic, but it may take up to 9 months to get the answer. Sheesh!
You’d have a great show if we didn’t have to watch 20 minutes of set up , and 15 more minutes of inside jokes, that are only funny to you !!! Jeez !

Question of The Day!
I have a tooth with a root canal that is beginning with infection in the bone. My holistic dentist is recommending a Zirconia Implant, but my husband doesn’t want to spend the money ($5000). I am considering just pulling it, but I lost the tooth next to it so I will have two open spaces on that side. The bigger issue for me is that I don’t want to go through what your wife went through. Do you have any advice, or things that you would have done differently? In addition, if there is infection in the bone, doing the silver/aloe protocol should take care of that, correct? Should I swallow or just swish? I have been diagnosed in the past with Dysbiosis and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance.
Should’ve Skipped That Pre-flight Burrito
Fisticuffs over flatulence: Passenger’s wind forces plane to make emergency
landing Strong wind has forced pilots to make an emergency landing before. Typically, it’s the breeze outside the cabin that’s the problem. Not so on a Transavia flight from Dubai to Amsterdam on Feb. 11. According to Dutch media, tensions escalated after a passenger allegedly refused to stop passing gas. De Telegraafreported that two Dutch citizens, two male and two female, were removed from the flight by authorities in Vienna.
