S3E13: Devastating medical news. Meningioma brain tumor.

On today’s show we pick up right where we left off on yesterday’s show.  Meena gives us a deep dive into the process of learning about and later having surgery for a meningioma brain tumor.

The meningioma, according to Johns Hopkins, is the most common type of brain tumor and the most treatable.

Meena, a certified yoga and Pilates instructor had been suffering from symptoms of what she believed to be an inner ear infection.   But after tests, with an ear nose and throat doctor, she discovers she needs a neurologist. 

We begin the story there.  Meena has just had an MRI and she is about to get the results that will change her life…

S3:E12: Massage and ALT treatments For pain

Is chiropractic adjustments quackery?  Is a massage as seedy as they say?  Some say yes, others say no.

For Meena, a certified yoga and pilates instructor, the answer is clear.   After undergoing brain surgery, she sought help though alternative medication. 

As we learned in our last episode, she’d become weary of pain medication, pills and potions so often used and abused in this country. Instead she got relief from acupuncture.

On today’s show Meena discusses her experience with massage, chiropractors and reflexology for pain relief. 

Then she explains what caused her to undergo brain surgery.  What were her symptoms and how did she finally locate a neurologist.

S3:E11: What’s the deal with acupuncture?

So, Donald Trump has the country freaking out once again over his racist statements. This time they are regarding four congresswoman.   

Trump seems to want us to believe this is a strategy to bring out his base.    The media, Democrats and most Americans believe it’s blatant white supremacy.  

Republicans believe two things.  Tax cuts and conservative judges.

I can imagine this whole ordeal stresses most readers out. That’s why we at The World As I Like It To Be podcast will sit this one out.

Instead, in this episode and blog, we will be discussing health and well being with Meena a certified yoga and pilates instructor.

Even with an active, healthy lifestyle, Meena has had a number of health crisis in her life including brain surgery which we talk in detail in another episode.  But in this episode, we focus the beneficial effects of acupuncture.

S3E9:is biden still popular and the history of busing in today’s podcast

Today’s show is so jam packed it’s almost an hour long!  The popular debate which aired Thursday June 26th on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo is the focus of this blog and podcast.

The ratings for night two became the highest rated democratic debate in broadcast history according to Nielsen. But this episode will focus squarely on the disappointing history if desegregation efforts that failed in part due to white moderates like Joe Biden.

The push by those on the progressive left and the internal struggles this nation faced trying to fight integration in the north and the south, transformed the democratic party for a second time.

As civil right drained the party of dixiecrats, busing drained the democratic party of liberal progressives, helping to give rise to the Regan Revolution, conservatism and eventually Donald Trump.

S3E8: Gerrymandering survives, politicians make moves

Today’s podcast we finish our analysis of night one of the 2020 democratic debate which aired on Wednesday June 24th on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo and discuss gerrymandering.

It’s been five days since the debates and already some candidates, like Harris and Booker, have altered their positions on Medicare For All.  

Meanwhile, from night two, governor Hickenlooper’s campaign is reportedly in “shambles” after the debate.

All eyes are on Kamala Harris who has seen a sizeable bump since the debate.   She’s hopped over Warren and Sanders in a new Iowa poll.

The standing which had been Biden, Sanders, Warren – in this new poll is – Biden, Harris, Warren. 

But will Harris’ slippery stance on issues like healthcare with which she has tied herself to progressive leaders Sanders and Warren, end up costing her moderate votes?

And will her flip flop to supporting private insurance, sour her toward progressive groups?

We discuss the losers from Wednesday’s debate below:

Liberal but practical podcast

The World As I Like It To Be is a liberal podcast, but I like to think we are a practical one.

On today’s show we will discuss the winners and losers from night one of the 2020 democratic debate that aired on NBC and MSNBC and Telemundo on Wednesday 26th 2019.

The purpose of today’s blog is to discuss why some of what Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would like to do will not work. Both having to do with the court and world events.

But first, according to  The New York Times, almost 15.3 million Americans tuned into Wednesday’s debate, a number that far exceeded what NBC News had anticipated.

Viewership almost equaled the 2015 Democratic primary debate between Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton.

It’s important to note that 15.3 million did not include streaming services or live viewings on YouTube, Facebook and other progressive podcasts and online series that normally skew close to the democratic base.

Surprisingly, the commander in chief remained relatively quiet on twitter during the whole thing.  I wonder why….
