    It’s likely that anyone pressing play on Netflix’s latest docuseries How to Change Your Mind is already well-versed in the magic of so-called psychedelics. But whether you’re an experienced “psychonaut” or a curious homepage scroller, you’ll be treated to an informative, and sometimes moving, deep dive into the healing properties of these substances and the reactionary moves of governments who see them as threats to their power. Each episode of the four-part series, based on journalist Michael Pollan’s bestselling book from 2018, individually tackles LSD, MDMA, psilocybin—the compound found in magic mushrooms—and mescaline, a compound in cacti, like peyote used by Native Americans, that is nonetheless illegal to ingest in the U.S. Immediately fascinating is the relatively recent discoveries of LSD and MDMA, the two most recognized and referenced of the four. LSD was first synthesized by Albert Hofmann in 1938. The Swiss chemist, we learn, was developing a new drug for women who had just given birth when he stumbled upon ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other plants. He broke it up into compounds, one...

    There’s nothing like spending time outside after being cooped up indoors all winter. The spring and summer months are usually filled with fun day trips to the park, hiking, time at the lake, or a camping excursion with your friends. And it’s even better when we get to enjoy some of these activities with our furry companions. There’s certainly no shortage of things to do, especially if you have an active pet. But there are also dangers that can pose serious risks to our pets. Before you head out to explore the great outdoors, here are a few important reminders to help keep your pet safe. 1. Keep Body Temperature in Check High temperatures can be dangerous for pets, so it’s important to watch for signs of heatstroke, a serious condition that can result in death if ignored.  Dogs cool themselves off by panting, but if your pet is panting excessively, or seems distressed, weak, or dizzy, they could be suffering from heatstroke. Older and overweight pets, or those who have existing medical conditions, can be especially susceptible. If your pet is in...

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.Vaccine hesitancy is declining, and incentives for changing our minds are growing. So what changed yours? Or how did you change someone else’s? Convincing a vaccine-hesitant friend or anti-vax family member to get the jab takes more than citing stark statistics and chilling facts about COVID devastation. It takes motivating and persuading, appealing to mindsets as much as medical evidence. What tipped the scales for you? Tell us at the bottom of this post what worked. Was it advice from a trusted doctor or persistent friend? The scare of a close one getting sick? Work requirements or back-to-school mandates? $1 million lotteries or free beer and gift cards?

    Draft BBC News World 3 hours Image source, Getty Images “Those who cannot change their minds can not change anything,” said George Bernard Shaw, an Irish playwright, critic and argumentator. Change is not only essential, it is inevitable, because life is not static or immutable, but rather fluid. Therefore, it is convenient to have an elastic mind, or call experts Cognitive flexibility, The ability to adapt our behaviors, thoughts and feelings to circumstances. We need some methods in a dramatic and urgent way, such as the period we have been living in since the beginning of 2020; In the face of the global epidemic, governments, companies, institutions and the public have been forced to make necessary and constructive adaptations.

    Mindfulness has become quite the buzzword in recent years. But it’s not all just buzz — there’s substantial research now that supports the health benefits of mindful activities. According to Psychology Today, “[M]indfulness is an incredible tool to help people understand, tolerate, and deal with their emotions in healthy ways. It helps us to alter our habitual responses by taking pause and choosing how we act.” Whenever you feel the cycle of negative emotions begin to take over your well-being, try some of these methods to disrupt that cycle and bring mindfulness into your daily life. 1. Breathe So maybe (hopefully) you’re doing this already, but try doing it with intention. Focus on the quality of your breathing — give a count to each inhale and exhale. When I’m feeling stress or anxiety, I like to take a few minutes to change my breathing: I count slowly to four on my inhale, hold for a second at the top of my breath, and then count to five on my exhale, thinking consciously about ridding any negativity within me on...

    It’s a flavor most all of us grew up eating, whether in ice cream or another type of dessert. Vanilla might seem boring, but it’s truly one of the most classic flavors you can never go wrong with. In fact, vanilla extract is a top ingredient in almost all types of dessert recipes for this very reason; it adds a warming, sweet, and rounded flavor that compliments just about any sweet treat it’s added to. And, if you’ve ever had a dish made with raw vanilla bean powder versus an extract, you know there’s nothing out there like the real thing. But vanilla bean isn’t just delicious and a flavor to enjoy in ice cream and desserts… it’s also a nutritional powerhouse we often forget about due to chocolate’s health benefits normally taking the reign. A Classic Flavor With Hidden Benefits Source: Healthy Vanilla Milkshake We’re certainly not negating the benefits of chocolate, which would be a total shame, but it’s time to give vanilla bean a little more attention and appreciation for all the nutritional secrets and...
    Instagram is making it easier to bring back deleted posts. The company is rolling out a “recently deleted” feature in the app that’ll allow you to review content you’ve deleted, including photos, videos, reels, IGTV videos, and stories, and restore them. Instagram is positioning this feature as helpful against hacks, particularly if hackers gain control of an account and start deleting content. Starting today, users will need to confirm they’re the account owner through either text or email in order to permanently delete or restore content. Deleted items will stay in the folder for 30 days, and if not touched, they will automatically delete after that point. Deleted stories are the exception, however: they will only stay in the recently deleted section for 24 hours before they’re permanently removed. To access the folder, navigate to Settings > Account > Recently Deleted. Clearly, Instagram wants to give people chances to keep their content before permanently removing it. The app already offers an archive, or a way to keep posts without them being publicly available, and with this feature, it’s allowing people...
    A reporter asked me recently what options workers have if they claim Social Security benefits and then change their mind. COVID-19 could cause such a sequence as people fearful of the virus gain confidence in an effective vaccine. I wasn’t sure about the answer and had to do a little checking. The answer varies depending on whether the worker is above or below the full retirement age — currently 66. Those who have reached the full retirement age, but are not yet 70, can ask Social Security to “suspend” their monthly benefit payments. By doing so, they will earn a delayed retirement credit for each month of suspension, which will result in higher benefits once they choose to resume payments. If they have not already restarted their benefits sooner, benefit payments will automatically begin again at age 70. Those who have not reached age 66 have two options. In the first 12 months after becoming entitled to benefits, workers can simply cancel their application and repay any benefits received to date. This process is called a “withdrawal.” Workers...

If you’ve received a mail ballot but have changed your mind and want to vote in person, there’s some good news: You probably can do this. The details differ from state to state. In some, you’ll be allowed to cast a regular ballot, and in others you’ll cast a “provisional” ballot, to be counted once election officials determine you haven’t already voted. You may need to bring your mail ballot to the polling place or election office and hand it to election workers to have it voided, or destroy it yourself, and you might be required to sign an affidavit stating that you did not already vote by mail. However, many election officials across the country...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — You’ve been hearing a lot about mail-in ballots, but what happens if you request a mail-in ballot and then change your mind? All three states in the tri-state region have different rules. “Stick to your plan. Make your voting plan and stick to it,” said Susan Suinat with U.S. Vote Foundation. “Help everybody, that way you don’t duplicate work.” The upcoming 2020 election is promising to break records in the number of total votes cast and the number of mail-in ballots requested and returned. But if you request a mail-in ballot and then change your mind, what happens next? In Delaware, you can still vote in person, even if you’ve requested a mail-in ballot. But, in New Jersey, if you change your mind, you’ll have to vote by provisional ballot. “You’d be able to vote, it simply would not be counted right away,” Suinat explained. “They need to check things out, investigate them, make sure you haven’t voted otherwise and then they count them as of seven days after the election.” In Pennsylvania, the rules are a...

    COVID-19 : Photo: Rich Davis If you’re still in doubt about the mask’s true utility, then this striking scientist-led experiment should change your mind. The proof in pictures… “What is a mask for? Here is a crucial question that Richard Davis tried to answer. And in just 42 seconds, he really succeeded in picturing what it means to wear that little piece of cloth. To convince as many people as possible, this head of the clinical microbiology laboratory at the Providence Sacred Heart Medical center in Spokane (Washington), carried out a simple experiment. He chose “to sneeze, sing, speak and cough, with or without a mask, near Petri dishes”, used for culturing microorganisms. And in less than a minute, the result was apparent: the bacteria grew in the exact spot where the air exhaled by the biologist was projected. Look : What about keeping your distance? Second demo: I set open bacteria culture plates 2, 4 and 6 feet away and coughed (hard) for ~ 15s. I repeated this without a mask. As seen by number of bacteria colonies, droplets...
    “I wish the non-believers could walk half a day in my shoes. They’d become the most cautious people out there.” – Ervin Inocenio Erwin Inocencio has worked at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center for 23 years. During COVID-19, Erwin has primarily worked in the Emergency Department and the ICU for COVID and non-COVID patients. (Photo Brand New Day Marketing)  It’s 6 a.m. last Wednesday, and Ervin Inocenio is reporting for work in the emergency room at Providence Saint Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank, where he’s been employed the past 23 years as a respiratory therapist. The hospital has two COVID-19 units – one for critical patients, one non-critical. Inocencio doesn’t know until he arrives in the morning which one he will be assigned to for the day, or if he’ll work the emergency room, like he is this day. We often heap praise on the doctors and nurses on the frontlines of the coronavirus war, and they deserve it, but too often we neglect the people, like Inocenio, who stand side by side them. By 10 a.m., Wednesday, the 48-year-old...
