Turning the Tide – Lifestyle Medicine and change (part 7) – South Coast Herald

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

Last week we presented common excuses given for why we dont want to commit to changing our behaviour and adopting a healthier way of living.

Today we will cover more ground.

It is true. There are some people who live the most atrociously unhealthy lives who seem to fly under the radar, and escape the bullets. In spite of all odds, they make it to a ripe old age. Good luck to them. But the chance you will do likewise is remote.

There are many factors that may have contributed to his longevity genetics, a more active younger life, getting enough sleep at night, a positive attitude towards life, eating some natural whole foods, even if it is a tin of baked beans from time to time. One gets these outliers, who beat the odds.

But instead of stacking up the odds against you, why not try to reduce the risks by whittling away at factors that have been scientifically proven to reduce your health and vitality. And in the process you can reap the rewards of feeling so much better within days of adopting change.

I agree it can be confusing. Author Michael Pollan said Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Too much of what we eat is food-like substances highly processed edible concoctions that have a long list of very scientific-sounding ingredients. The best foods are the ones that dont have ingredient lists the ones you buy in the vegetable and fruit sections of the supermarket. For thousands of years humankind has thrived on natural foods fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts, seeds and spices. It is only in the last century that the industrial revolution has introduced factory-altered foods to make them more palatable, addictive and provide a longer shelf-life. In doing so our food has lost a great deal of the natural goodness fibre, phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, etc.

His second point is also relevant not too much. When the food has been so concentrated and titillated, it is easy to over-indulge, resulting in excessive energy intake. This is one of the main reasons for the obesity epidemic.

If we eat mostly plants, we will not be exposed to high levels of saturated fats, and excessive proteins, heme-iron, inflammatory stimulators, hormones and growth stimulators so rife in animal products.

The media loves controversy it sells newspapers/magazines. We love to get good news about our bad habits.

So when some study or article makes claims that support peoples bad habits, even when the study has been sponsored by the industries who benefit most from the recommendations, the headlines are all over the place, creating confusion and controversy. There is more than enough very sound research supporting the simple nutritional information we present in this blog, and which has become imbedded in most of the national guidelines around the world.

There are very many challenges in life. If we want to achieve anything worthwhile we have to make sacrifices and overcome barriers. No success comes easily.

A healthy body, a clear mind, energy for living, and freedom from so many of the scourges of modern life require persistence in small, sustainable changes. We should start slowly, but gradually stretch the limits of our capabilities. You may have pain walking or jogging, but you can strengthen your upper body and torso; you may be able to swim with freedom of pain, or cycle. Where theres a will, theres a way. You may need to counsel with a physiotherapist or a personal trainer, but there are ways you can improve your physical activity.

I hope that the answers you have read to some of the common excuses has given you opportunities to reassess your commitment to change, and think creatively about how you can begin to enjoy the benefits of positive health changes.

Next week we will discuss the SMART pneumonic for implementing changes whether they be with exercise, or dietary changes, or stopping smoking, or dealing with stress in your life.

Until then, contemplate about what you want out of life.

What’s Behind All the Pro-Azerbaijan Articles? – Armenian Weekly

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

Azerbaijans President Ilham Aliyev has opened another battlefront thousands of miles away from Baku, in the pages of local and national newspapers and news sites in the US. Much like the Syrian mercenaries Baku recruited and deployed with the help of Turkish defense contractors to target Armenians, Azerbaijans US-based lobbyists are at the forefront of an information warfare that costs millions of dollars annually.

One important aspect of the work of these lobbyists is to place, disseminate and promote anti-Armenian narratives. Their tactics have evolved into a relentless smear campaign through US media outlets, painting Armenia as a close ally of Iran that undermines Western policies and Armenians as intolerant and anti-Semitic. At the same time, Azerbaijan is depicted as a beacon of tolerance, an ally of Israel and a champion of religious rights.

Bakus lobbyists continually push this narrative by placing articles in various media outlets, reaching out to editors with numerous factsheets and disseminating Baku-approved stories to contacts in positions of power. Many such propaganda pieces that are essentially commissioned by the Azerbaijani government appear in US media outlets without proper disclaimers, and therein loom the danger and deception.

Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) filings by Azerbaijans lobbyists show how they approach almost every major outlet from Bloomberg to CNN, the Washington Post, the Jerusalem Post, the New York Times, NBC, Al-Jazeera, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee, Haaretz, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal; the list is almost interminably long.

Over the past few weeks, numerous articles have discussed Azerbaijans war on Armenia; many have had a bias, some suspiciously so. It may be impossible to tell which are penned by Aliyevs supporters and which are commissioned or disseminated by Bakus agents here; but a few are (and will be) known because of FARA filings.

From comments left under strikingly pro-Azerbaijani articles, it is clear that many readers have been frustrated and disheartened. Arguably, readers have a right to know whether the content they are consuming is either commissioned or part of a foreign governments information warfare. Without proper disclaimers under articles received from embassies by way of lobbyists, editors risk tarnishing the credibility of the news outlets they represent and deliver a blow to the idea of journalistic integrity. A simple one-liner would suffice, such as, This article was sent to us by [insert name of PR firm] on behalf of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United States of America. Editors uncomfortable with such disclaimers might reconsider running blatant propaganda pieces that essentially import the state-sponsored narrative of a country with one of the worst media freedom records.

To give readers a clearer idea of how Azerbaijans lobbyists place and disseminate narratives that support Bakus propaganda campaign, I will take a close look at the activities of certain lobbyists employed by Aliyevs government, by examining hundreds of pages of FARA filings available in the US Department of Justice (DOJ) online archives.

An Information Warfare

In an Aug. 25 article titled Russia and Irans Dangerous Energy Gambit in the Caucasus and published by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, human rights lawyer and national security analyst Irina Tsukerman embraces all the talking points put out by Baku. She refers to Artsakh as a fake republic and an ersatz entity. After a series of hypotheticals (like Russia and Armenia might join forces to bring Russian biological weapons close to Azerbaijan), she proceeds to advise Baku on how to handle pro-Armenian sentiment in the west.

Azerbaijan should form a closer joint defense relationship with the US, benefiting from joint training and insights from experienced field operatives and officers. Additionally, greater resources need to be marshalled for information warfare and the political aspect of the battle being waged, including supporting professional media to counter disinformation, building personal and long-term relationships with public officials at all levels, and, most importantly, vigorously pursuing legislative and legal relief in US, European, and international bodies. Armenian officials responsible for human rights abuses should be sanctioned, she writes (italics my own).

Since a large chunk of her article deals with the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA), which is active in DC, one might understand that Tsukerman is essentially encouraging a foreign government, Azerbaijan, to wage information warfare against a grassroots Armenian-American organization that promotes and advocates for the interests of and issues important to American citizens of Armenian origin. In other words, she is calling on Azerbaijan with its dismal media freedom record to export its relentless propaganda to the US.

In its 2020 report, Freedom House designated Azerbaijan as a consolidated authoritarian regime with a score of 10/100, observing that Constitutional guarantees for press freedom are routinely and systematically violated, as the government works to maintain a tight grip on the information landscape. Defamation remains a criminal offense. Journalists and their relatives face harassment, violence and intimidation by authorities. Many have been detained or imprisoned on fabricated charges, while others face travel bans. Armenia fared as partly free, with a score of 53/100. The report noted Independent and investigative outlets operate relatively freely in Armenia, but their work is generally found online.

We may not know what motivates Tsukermans anti-Armenian rhetoric; she has no known ties to current lobbyists for Baku.

On Oct. 20, another one of Tsukermans articles, co-authored by Jason Epstein, was published by Newsweek. Tsukerman and Epstein unite in [their] support of Sunni-majority Turkeys Shia ally, Azerbaijan, an unabashedly pro-Western country, as it is unfairly smeared. The article argues that the war is not about religion; it discusses Azerbaijans secularism, the Popes 2016 visit to Baku, religious minorities in Azerbaijan, and Ashkenazi, Georgian and Mountain Jews.

No wonder Iran, the largest Shia country in the world but with ethnic Azeris comprising of up to 30 percent of its population, feels threatened by a tolerant Azerbaijans continued geopolitical success and therefore supports Armenia, write the authors. Tsukermans co-author Epstein is the president of Southfive Strategies, LLC and a former public relations consultant for the Turkish Embassy in Washington (2002 2007); he has long considered [himself] both pro-Israel and pro-Turkey. Among Southfives past clients are the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy in Baku, the Turkish Embassy in Washington and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Washington office.

Epsteins work with the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy, which is funded by the Azerbaijani government, began on Aug. 1, 2008, when Epstein registered as a foreign agent with the DOJs FARA unit for his work with the Academy. In describing his engagement with that entity, Epstein wrote, Assisting the Academy in producing a policy conference in Azerbaijan on US-Azeri relations, as well as meetings with Azeri officials, business leaders, religious leaders, and media personalities.

When asked whether Southfive would engage in political activities and what those activities might entail, Epstein responded, Encouraging journalists to file stories on US-Azeri relations, based on their experiences at the conference and during various meetings.

The disclaimer under the Newsweek article reads: Jason Epstein is president of Southfive Strategies, LLC, an international public affairs consultancy. Irina Tsukerman is a New York-based human rights lawyer and national security/geopolitical analyst, the vice president of Timberwolf Phoenix, a media and security consultancy, and an adviser to the London-based International Justice Organization. The views expressed in this article are the writers own.

There is no mention of Epsteins past lobbying work for the governments of Azerbaijan and Turkey. A reader would have to independently research Southfive Strategies to learn that for years it had engaged in lobbying on behalf of Azerbaijan and Turkey.

Bakus US Agents

A FARA filing by the Podesta Group in 2013 details the extent of its outreach to US politicians, universities, think tanks, but also most major news outlets, including Bloomberg, Foreign Policy, CNN, Washington Post (and Times), EurasiaNet, Associated Press, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Jerusalem Post, Al-Jazeera, Los Angeles Times, NBC, New York Times and Haaretz.

Just between June and December of 2017, Podesta received $260,735.56 for its work on behalf of the Azerbaijani Embassy in the U.S., according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) report. That year, Podesta was one of four companies registered with the DOJ for work on behalf of Azerbaijan that cost Baku $560,735.56. During a six-month period that same year, 16 companies worked on behalf of Turkey with a total (reported) price tag of $4,284,020.06. Meanwhile, during the six-month period, an Avedis Boyamian offered pro-bono policy consultation to Armenia; price tag: $0. This information is available in the DOJ report titled, Report of the Attorney General to the Congress of the United States on the Administration of the Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938, as amended, for the six months ending December 31, 2017.

Among the lobby groups that have represented Azerbaijan in the past couple of years are the Livingston Group (contract terminated on Oct. 13), Stellar Jay Communications, BGR Government Affairs, Sanitas International, Rasky Partners (click here for an earlier and more detailed contract, and here and here for samples of their media outreach), and Baker Donelson (contracted by BGR). Meanwhile, another lobbying firm, S-3 Group, which works on behalf of the Baku-based Investment Corporation owned by Seyidov Tural Oglu, has create[d] and place[d] earned and digital media to further diplomacy between America and Azerbaijan, according to a DOJ filing; for instance, S-3 sent out pro-Azerbaijan factsheets on Oct. 15.

To get an idea of the ties, experience and expertise some of these lobby groups retain, a quick glance at the rank and file of BGR Public Affairs will suffice. Among their team members are: former Governor of Mississippi Haley Barbour; former Policy Director at the Senate Finance Committee Matt Hoffmann; Former Representative Sean Duffy (R-WI); former Senior Executive Clandestine Service Officer with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Daniel Hoffman; former FBI man Tom Locke; former US Ambassador to NATO Kurt Volker; former Director of Legislative Affairs for the National Security Council Mark Tavlarides; former senior USAID official Lester Munson; a Frank Ahrens who can arrange client interviews with Fox News, CNN, The Washington Post and major wire services; and a Jeff Birnbaum who is a former White House, congressional and tax reporter for the Wall Street Journal, a senior political correspondent for Time Magazine, Washington bureau chief for Fortune Magazine and a columnist for the Washington Post.

When Azerbaijan and Turkey pay millions to employ such lobbying firms, they are in effect buying ease of access to major national news services.

A Stellar Case

The case of one public relations firm employed by Baku might offer a glimpse into the Azeri lobbying efforts through pro-Azerbaijan articles in US media. The articles pushed on various editors deal with that general theme of tolerant Azerbaijan and intolerant Armenia. Whatever information warfare Tsukerman might have been alluding to in her article is displayed below.

At the center of the story is Jacob Kamaras, the former editor-in-chief of the Jewish National Syndicate (JNS), where pro-Azerbaijan and anti-Armenian articles have appeared in the past two years (for instance, Irina Tsukermans Oct. 12 article), including pieces that promote denial of the Armenian Genocide. Kamaras is the founder and chief of Stellar Jay Communications, which actively lobbied for the Azerbaijani Embassy in the US in 2020, and about which Julian Pecquet, founder and editor of the Foreign Lobby Report, has written. Note that Kamaras has filed a Fictitious Business Name Statement for his company with the DOJ.

Kamaras registered to lobby for the Azerbaijani Embassy on Jan. 31, 2020. The DOJ form informs that the registrant engages with Azerbaijans Ambassador Elin Suleymanov and receives a $3,300 fee per project. Kamaras principal mode of operation is through outreach to newspapers and editors, as noted in another DOJ file. Still another DOJ filing reveals that Kamaras, whose work for the Embassy entailed media consulting and op-ed placement, was paid $56,100 between Feb. 17 and July 10, 2020, presumably for 17 projects.

Among the papers Kamaras submitted to the DOJ are a number of emails he sent to news outlets, urging them to publish certain pro-Azerbaijan articles and offering certain pro-Azerbaijan talking points. There are 14 files (excluding the companys registration) that span the first eight months of the year; the last disclosure is dated August 7.

Propaganda: Israel Should Ally with Tolerant Azerbaijan

In the first email dated Feb. 12, addressed to the editors at the conservative, Kamaras asks the news website to consider publishing an article by Maayan Hoffman, the news editor at The Jerusalem Post, titled, A Jewish-Muslim paradigm for peace. Hoffman argues that Azerbaijan has pioneered a paradigm for warm Muslim ties with Israel, the nation Tehran repeatedly vows to wipe off the map Israel only stands to benefit from having an ally like Azerbaijan on the border of arguably the Jewish states fiercest enemy. She stresses that Jews live in Azerbaijan in peace and prosperity and details various developments in the benevolent attitude of Baku towards its Jewish minority population.

Kamaras email (like all his other emails discussed below) ends with a disclaimer noting that the email and its contents are sent by Stellar Jay Communications on behalf of the Azerbaijani Embassy.

On Feb. 13, CNSNews published the story, slightly altering the headline to read, Heres What a Jewish-Muslim Paradigm for Peace Looks Like. A brief bio of the author appeared below the article: Maayan Hoffman is news editor and head of online content and strategy at The Jerusalem Post. She has been an American-Israeli international journalist for more than two decades. There was no mention of Stellar Jay Communications or the Azerbaijani Embassy.

Propaganda: Armenia is Anti-Semitic

Kamaras second email dated March 9 is addressed to Rob Shimshock of CNSNews, containing yet another article, this time by Jesse Bogner and titled The old anti-Semitism is alive and well. This piece alleges that there is medieval-style anti-Semitism coming from Armenian organizations and commentators, and that [T]he ANCAs recent rhetoric on Twitter represents the latest indicator of not only the anti-Semitism emanating from Armenia, one of the worlds oldest Christian nations, but also of the disturbing perpetuation of classical Christian anti-Semitism. Of course, Bogner portrays Azerbaijan as a haven of tolerance. By contrast, Armenias Muslim-majority neighbor has a deep relationship with Israel, no history of anti-Semitism, and a prosperous Jewish community of its own for more than two millennia, he writes.

Apparently CNSNews did not publish Bogners article. On March 15, the piece was published on Bogners blog on The Times of Israel. Again, there was no mention of the Azerbaijani Embassy; just Bogners bio: Jesse Bogner is an author and journalist. His memoir and social critique, The Egotist, has been translated into five languages. His work has been featured in The Daily Caller, MSN, The Daily Wire and The Huffington Post. His book of articles, Tikkunim (Corrections), was released in January 2018.

It is outside the scope of this article to counter such propaganda. However, I will refer you to Yoav Loeffs Jan. 27 article titled, Armenias Antisemitism? The Truth Is Different, in The Jerusalem Post, which he wrote coincidentally in response to a piece by Hoffmanthe same Hoffman whose articles Kamaras disseminated on behalf of Azerbaijans Embassy. Loeff, who teaches Armenian history and culture at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is Jewish and has traveled to Armenia with other Jews and Israelis on many occasions, and stresses that he has never heard a hint of antisemitic expression.

If there is some criticism, it is usually about Israels hesitation to recognize the Armenian genocide that was perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire he writes.

Armenias small Jewish community never suffered antisemitism in their adopted homeland. Most of them left in the early 1990s, after the severe earthquake in the north of the country in 1988 and the collapse of the Soviet Union, explains Loeff. He notes the dire economic situation following the earthquake and the Artsakh war and adds, They did not leave because they faced any antisemitism; they left because they sought better life.

Loeff also discusses the various ways in which Armenian government representatives had honored Holocaust victims, from Armenian President Armen Sarkissians attendance at the World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem to the erection of a monument in Yerevan in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide. Unfortunately, there is no parallel such monument in Israel, he adds.

Propaganda: Azerbaijan is a Friend to Israel

On March 13, Kamaras emailed The Jewish Voice editor Fern Sidman, offering him a piece by Hoffman, this time titled, Could fighting coronavirus be the latest frontier in the Israel-Azerbaijan relationship? Hoffman noted the presence of Azerbaijans Finance Minister Samir Shafirov at the AIPAC Policy Conference and quoted him to have said, Cooperation with Israel is not limited to oil supply; we are interested in widening cooperation in defense and the transfer of technology. Apparently Shafirov also read Azerbaijans first-lady-turned-vice-president Mehriban Aliyevas remarks praising Azerbaijani-Jewish ties in the US. The gist of the article was the importance of strengthening Azerbaijani-Israeli ties. The email closed with the usual disclaimer about Kamaras communicating on behalf of the Azerbaijani Embassy.

Hoffmans piece was accepted and published without any mention of Kamaras firm or the Azerbaijani Embassy. However, some days later, NBC news published a piece highlighting Hoffmans article as an example of foreign governments using American lobbyists to promote their efforts to fight the coronavirus outbreak and safeguard their countries reputations in the U.S. capital. NBC goes on to point out that The piece was written by Maayan Hoffman, identified as a Jerusalem Post news editor, but the published version makes no mention that the commentary was placed by Stellar Jay Communications, a lobbying firm representing the government of Azerbaijan, as a FARA filing shows.

NBC was right about foreign governments promoting their countries, safeguarding their reputations and placing op-eds in various papers. What NBC failed to understand is that this was not about the coronavirus, but part of an information war that ultimately feeds and bolsters the myth of the religiously tolerant Azerbaijan and the intolerant Armenia; and that is one of the key objectives of Baku, and by extension their US agents.

Propaganda: Armenia is a Friend to Iran

On April 23, Kamaras sent out another email to CNSNews with an article written by Bogner, whoin Kamaras wordsexamines how the coronavirus is not stopping Iran from fueling conflict and undermining sanctions through its proxies. Specifically, he looks at Armenias role in empowering Iran economically. The article, titled, Coronavirus doesnt stop Iran from fueling the fire of conflict, accuses Iranian trucks of delivering fuel to Nagorno-Karabakh, the Armenian-occupied region which several U.N. resolutions affirm as part of Azerbaijan, charges Armenian banks of enabling Tehran, and faults Democratic US lawmakers for having a pro-Armenian policy agenda.

The article ignores Azerbaijans ties with Iran, the fact that in 2019 Azerbaijans imports from Iran were worth US $452.63 million and exports at US $41.13 million, while Armenias imports from Iran were worth US $324.7 million and exports at US $83.84 million, according to the United Nations COMTRADE database. In other words, both countries maintain an economic relationship with their sanctioned neighbor.

Once again, Bogners piece did not appear in CNSNews and instead was published on his blog on the Times of Israel without any mention of the Azerbaijani Embassy or Jay Stellar Communications.

Propaganda: Azerbaijan Champions Religious Freedom

Kamaras next email (May 6) was also to CNSNews, in which it becomes clear that Rob Shimshock (the recipient) did not respond to the lobbyists previous two emails (which also explains why Bogners pieces ended up on his blog). This time, Kamaras submits his own article titled Azerbaijans postponed Formula 1 race transcends sports about which he tells Shimshock, I write that despite the events postponement this year, the annual Formula 1 auto race hosted by Muslim-majority Azerbaijan particularly during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan is a powerful display of religious freedom, especially in a world plagued by sectarian conflict and now by the invisible enemy of the coronavirus.

What Kamaras fails to mention is that Freedom House gave Azerbaijan a score of 0 out 4 for religious freedom in its 2020 report, which noted, The regime exercises control over religion through state-affiliated entities such as the Caucasus Muslim Board. Religious communities that attempt to operate independently face burdensome registration requirements, interference with the importation and distribution of printed religious materials, and arrest and harassment of religious leaders with international ties or a significant following. In other words, the idea of a religiously tolerant Azerbaijan is a myth nurtured by Bakus agents abroad.

In any case, at the end of the article submission, Kamaras includes his bio: Jacob Kamaras, former editor in chief of the Jewish News Syndicate, is noted for his work on the Middle East and American politics. His writing has appeared in the Washington Times, Independent Journal Review, the American Spectator, and various Jewish and Israeli media. It makes no mention of his role as a lobbyist on behalf of the Embassy of Azerbaijan to the US. However, the email does end with the usual disclaimer.

CNSNews published the article on May 7, slightly altering the title to read, Azerbaijans Grand Prix Transcends Sports, Speaks to Religious Freedom. However, it added the following to Kamaras bio: Jacob Kamaras is founder of Stellar Jay Communications, a PR firm representing Azerbaijan. The next day, another lobbyist on behalf of Azerbaijan, Mark Tavlarides of the BGR Group, emailed the article out to relevant contacts, urging them to read it.

Propaganda: Israel and Azerbaijan are Partners (and Trailblazers in the Understanding of Aging)

A few days later, Kamaras reached out to the editor of the Salinas Californian, Silas Lyons, with a story written by Diana Cohen Altman, former executive director of the Karabakh Foundation and a contributor to the JNS. Altmans piece was about Azerbaijanis who live up to 120 years old in Lankaran. Altman discusses diet, genetics and clusters of very old people in Azerbaijan, as well as longevity in Ashkenazi Jewish populations. Quoted in the piece is a surgeon who is a member of the Azerbaijan-Israel Inter-Parliamentary Work Group. The piece concludes with yet another nod to Azerbaijani-Israeli friendship with these words: Azerbaijan has fostered significant partnerships in the humanities and other disciplines, and the West is building an understanding of Azerbaijani culture and contributions. Amid the pandemic and in the coming years, the U.S. scientific community may look to Israel and Azerbaijan who are partners in technical and other arenas for breakthroughs in the understanding of aging.

The piece did not appear in The Californian. Instead, it was published by The Jerusalem Post on June 4. The final paragraphs were altered a bit, and there was this addition: The Azerbaijani superaging phenomenon may also be of particular interest to social scientists, given major societal changes during the past century. Consider this: Someone over the age of 100 might have witnessed what is now the Republic of Azerbaijan as a portion of the Russian Empire, a part of the early Azerbaijani Democratic Republic, and as an S.S.R. of the Soviet Union. In effect, this addition attempts to insert a historical footnote in this article that on the surface appears to be about longevity.

Altmans bio appears at the end of the piece: Diana Cohen Altman, principal of Cultural Diplomacy Associates, L.L.C., and former executive director of the US cultural non-profit Karabakh Foundation, writes extensively about Azerbaijani cultural and civil-society topics. It made no mention of the Embassy of Azerbaijan or Jay Stellar Communications. Also to note, Altman is still listed on the Karabakh Foundations website as its Executive Director.

Propaganda: Armenians are Intolerant, Anti-Semitic

On June 11, through Kamaras, Baku resorted again to charges of anti-Semitism as a desperate attempt to vilify Armenian Americans. An email informs that Kamaras own article appeared in BreakingIsraelNews (, titled Armenias Self-Defeating Campaign Against Christians. The article ran as an op-ed. It decried Armenian-American opposition to evangelical pastor Rev. Johnnie Moores support of Azerbaijan and Trumps Middle East policies, singled out Asbarez news for its coverage and bashed the ANCA, accusing it of anti-Semitic tweets.

Although at the base of his email, Kamaras included his disclaimerThis material is distributed by Stellar Jay Communications on behalf of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United States of Americathe published article made no mention of the authors bio or of his work on behalf of the Azerbaijani Embassy. Readers were (and continue to be) misled into believing the piece was written by a concerned writer and not a paid agent of Azerbaijans propaganda campaign. The Azerbaijani reprinted the article, also without any mention of Kamaras role as a foreign agent for Baku.

Propaganda: Armenia is an Occupier; Unreliable Partner; Aids Iran

On July 14, Kamaras approached The Washington Free Beacon with a list of Azerbaijani talking points on the escalation of violence between Armenia and Azerbaijan. I wanted to share a few angles below that could help you provide broader context in any story, if you choose to pursue one. Should you want to set up a phone interview with the ambassador, please let me know and Ill be happy to arrange it, wrote Kamaras. The Beacon did not take him up on the offer. In fact their last report that even mentions Azerbaijan ran in January of this year. Nonetheless, its worth reviewing Kamaras talking points.

Aside from highlighting some European support for Azerbaijans territorial integrity, Kamaras shared an article by none other than Bogner in American Thinker titled, Democrats West Bank rhetoric rings hollow, in which the author asks, Where is the condemnation of Armenias occupation of the same percentage of internationally recognized Azerbaijani territory, in the Nagorno-Karabakh region?; another article by Paul Miller in the JNS titled, Beware of the sanctions busters, accuses Armenia of offering the [Iranian] mullahs one of their best escape routes from crippling American sanctions; as well as Hoffmans article in BreakingIsraelNews titled, A Nation that is Faithful to Iran Is no Reliable Partner (one can glean the spirit of the article from the title). He also shared a July 7 article in Arab News by Iranian American journalist Adelle Nazarian, a foreign policy analyst with Breitbart News who was in Azerbaijan in 2019. In it, Nazarian argues that Now is the time for US lawmakers to echo Europes support for territorial integrity. Hypocrisy should no longer be accepted.

Propaganda: Armenians are Plagued by Extremist Ideologies(Like Nazism and Anti-Semitism)

On July 13, Kamaras emailed Fox News correspondent Hollie McKay, offering her the opportunity to interview Azerbaijans Ambassador to the US Elin Suleymanov. McKay had interviewed the Ambassador in March 2019. She did not interview the Ambassador in July, but Fox News did speak with him on Sept. 28, just as Azerbaijan launched its offensive. (On Oct. 4 McKay did report on the recruitment of Syrian fighters by Turkish defense contractors to fight in Azerbaijan).

In early August, Kamaras approached a number of news sites on behalf of Amb. Suleymanov. On Aug. 5, he emailed Mercury News asking them to publish an article penned by the Ambassador, titled Hate crimes have no place under the California sun.

The Ambassadors article centers on a scuffle between Armenian and Azerbaijani protesters in Los Angeles. He proceeds to highlight some statements from Jewish American groups regarding the incident and suddenly hurls allegations of anti-Semitism. Both Armenia and the Armenian communities abroad have long been plagued by extremist ideologies, political violence and a complicated history with anti-Semitism, Nazi collaborators and Middle Eastern radicals, he writes.

Such broad charges are not only insulting to Armenians worldwide and Armenian Americans, many of whom fought the Nazis, but also warps history, erasing the sacrifices of many like the members of the Manouchian Group, one of the most active French resistance groups. Of course, this is coming from the representative of a government that wholeheartedly joins neighbor Turkey in its unashamed and continued denial of the genocide perpetrated by its Ottoman Turkish predecessor.

Essentially, the Ambassador is relying on charges of anti-Semitism against Armenians to draw support for the Azerbaijani policies and claims against Artsakh. By doing so, he is using the very real presence and danger of anti-Semitism in the world as a tool to further Bakus agenda and in the hopes of garnering Jewish American and Israeli sympathies. As Kamaras previous emails show, Bakus tactics have at their core the manipulation of fears towards both Iran and anti-Semitism.

The Ambassadors article was presumably rejected by Mercury News, because on Aug. 6 Kamaras submitted the same piece to the San Francisco Chronicle. Three minutes later, he sent the piece to The Sacramento Bee; and a minute later to The Hill. The article was finally published in The Monterey County Herald on Aug. 12, despite its overt propagandizing and vilification of Armenians worldwide.

That is the last of Kamaras activities submitted to the DOJ.

A Glance at BGR

Other lobby groups, such as BGR, also heavily publicized pro-Azerbaijan viewpoints and articles, and reached out to various media outlets for interviews, or to offer talking points. For instance, the DOJ FARA registration unit received a copy of an email from Mark Tavlarides of the BGR Group, which shared an article by the same Nazarian, titled, Azerbaijan: A Nation that Bears the Torch, and Burden, of Bringing Religious Freedom to its Less Tolerant Neighbours in the Region.

The author, Adelle Nazarian, visited Azerbaijans 5th World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue in Baku. Nazarian noted the insightful meetings and visits which left her acutely aware of the sensitive nature of Azerbaijans position as a potential kingmaker for the cause of religious freedom and unity between the three Abrahamic faiths in the region. She expressed hope that religious freedom would also flourish in Azerbaijans neighbors in the region, wrote Tavlarides in his email.

Tavlarides has on many occasions disseminated pro-Azerbaijan articles on behalf of the Embassy, such as a piece by Hoffman in the JNS, titled Azerbaijani national hero provides a paradigm for Jewish-Muslim relations. On numerous other instances, Tavlarides sent out the links to articles, official Azerbaijani statements, resources, factsheets (including an Oct. 5 email), press releases, the pro-Azerbaijan statements of various organizations and politicians, and tweets such as one sent out by Israels Ambassador to the US touting Azerbaijan as a beacon of religious tolerance, as well as another one by Luke Coffey, director of Foreign Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation, critical of Armenia and Armenians.

In a turn from the cynical to the absurd, Tavlarides also disseminated a link to an episode of the CBS show Seal Team, which depicts the fictional support of elite US forces to help protect an Azerbaijani power plant from a potential attack by Armenian loyalists, Shiite militia, or foreign powers looking to reduce American influence in the region. Tavlarides went on to stress that The scene emphasizes the strategic role of Azerbaijan as our only ally in the Caspian Sea and a deterrent to unaligned powers in the area.

Azerbaijan paid BGR $510,000 in 2019, $600,000 in 2018, and $490,000 in 2017.

The Case of Brenda Shaffer

In 2015, Till Bruckner of the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) published a piece titled, How to Build Yourself a Stealth Lobbyist, Azerbaijani Style. The focus of the article is Brenda Shaffer, a visiting researcher and adjunct professor at Georgetown University, a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Councils Global Energy Center, professor at the University of Haifa, and former head of the Caspian Studies Program at Harvard, which was funded by the Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce. Bruckner discusses Shaffers various activities and lays out her myriad connections with Azerbaijans lobbyists, including her role as adviser to the State Oil Company of the Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR).

According to Bruckner, Shaffers activities included testifying before the House of Representatives Committee on International Relations, contributing to various DC think tanks (including a panel discussion on Azerbaijan, hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, during which she reportedly praised the countrys vibrant press), and writing numerous op-eds for US and Israeli news outlets. She was often consulted on matters relating to Azerbaijanwhether by the media or US officials.

Supported by an overseas regime and an assorted network of overt and undercover lobbyists, she used oil money to build her academic credentials, then in turn used those credentials to promote Azerbaijans agendas through Congressional testimony, dozens of newspaper op-eds and media appearances, countless think tank events, and even scholarly publications, wrote Bruckner.

In a 2006 Harpers Magazine piece titled Academics for Hire, journalist Ken Silverstein wrote, Caspian watchers beware: the next time you see or hear an independent American expert talking about how the regions rulers are implementing bold reforms, check the experts credentials to see just how independent he or she truly is.

After inquiries by Bruckner, some newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post added disclaimers under Shaffers articles, disclosing her roles and ties to SOCAR. Others did not.

Shaffer continues to publish op-eds on the subject. For instance, on Oct. 14, JNS ran a piece by Sean Savage titled, How the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict could impact Israels regional strategic landscape.

Israel and Azerbaijan maintain a strategic alliance. It is not just about arms sales or oil, but a very deep strategic cooperation, she told JNS, adding, Israel has friendly ties with the Armenian people and is home to a vibrant Armenian community. On strategic issues, however, the two states are on different sides. Armenia has close cooperation with Iran, and much of the military supplies to Armenia today transit Iranian territory.

Shaffers credentials were left as a senior fellow at the Atlantic Councils Global Energy Center. The JNS piece was reprinted in multiple outlets.

Armenian Americans Fight Back

The ANCA, the Armenian Assembly and many concerned Armenian Americans have been vocal with their efforts to pressure lobbyists to back down and terminate their contracts, as Foreign Lobbys Pecquet reports. Already over the weekend, the Armenian diaspora bombarded the S-3 Group with more than a thousand emails with an identical message pressuring the Washington public affairs firm to stop representing a new client from Azerbaijan (Foreign Lobby Report was copied on the emails), wrote Pecquet, adding, The firm recently picked up a Baku-based company called Investment Corporation, LLC for $25,000 per month to create and place earned and digital media to further diplomacy. The diaspora letter, which you can read in its entirety here, describes S-3s client as a thinly veiled front for the Government of Azerbaijan through a proxy shell corporation.

Their aim is to vilify Armenians worldwide.

The Livingston Group terminated its contract with the government of Azerbaijan on Oct. 13. Pecquet notes that this came three months after the lobby group informed the DOJ that it was negotiating another contract with Baku. Pecquet also reported that DLA Piper, a lobby group working for the state-owned Azerbaijan Railways CJSC, terminated its contract on Oct. 19. DLA Piper was contracted to provide the foreign principal with legal advice and assistance relating to U.S. sanctions on Iran that affect the transport of oil, gas, and other petrochemical products that originate in third countries and that transit through Iran.

Meanwhile, the lobbying firm Mercury Public Affairs cut its ties with Turkey on Oct. 23, after pressure from the Armenian American community. The decision came following protests led by the ANCA and the Armenian Assembly outside the firms offices, as well as pressure from current clients like Los Angeles County, California State Assembly, and Los Angeles Community College District representatives, reported Politico.

A lot of people have bought a lot of summer homes and fishing boats and put their grandkids through college by lying about Armenia and covering up for Azerbaijan, ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian told Politico.

Hamparian said that BGR was next on the list.

Fact: Baku Aims to Vilify Armenians through US Media

Some of the articles disseminated by these lobby groups employed by Azerbaijan cross-link with others written by authors like Bogner, desperately trying to paint Armenia as a threat like Iran, and Armenians as anti-Semites. Reading these articles, one might not even realize that there is a Jewish community in Armenia as well, and they too have spoken up (See Lara Setrakians article in Haaretz titled, Im Jewish and Armenian. Israeli Weapons Are Killing My People). Their existence is not weaponized in western media by either Armenians or the Armenian government.

In all this, it is clear that Azerbaijans smear campaign against Armenia relies on those two tales: Armenia is dangerous; and Armenians are intolerant and anti-Semitic. The basic calculations run something like this: Israel is good; Iran is bad; Armenia is to Azerbaijan what Iran is to Israel; therefore, Armenia must be bad, and Azerbaijan must be good; and furthermore, Israel and Azerbaijan must stand united, while Iran and Armenia are the enemy and must be sanctioned. These are the points that are being pushed by Bakus lobbyists to elicit an unfavorable public perception of Armenia and Armenians. Their aim is to vilify Armenians worldwide. The sheer number of articles pushing this narrative is astounding. Some of them are paid for and disseminated by Azerbaijans lobbyists, and published without any disclaimers to highlight that fact. The propaganda is so blatant that one wonders how anyonewhether readers or editorscould take any of these pieces seriously.

However, the responsibility to vet and flag such articles falls squarely at the feet of editors. By publishing articles without the appropriate scrutiny and disclaimers, editors are complicit in the disinformation campaign and agents of Bakus information war. Mercenaries and lobbyists are motivated by Aliyevs petro-dollars. One can only hope that editors are driven by the pursuit of truth; and those who are not should consider sending their resumes to the Azerbaijani Embassy in DC.

Authors note: Id like to thank Khatchig Mouradian for his feedback. This article does not deal with the activities of lobby groups working on behalf of Turkey, or the financial contributions of Azerbaijans lobby groups to US politicians running for office, or other activities and outreach efforts (such as the Oct. 2 Zoom session with Amb. Suleymanov and congressional staff hosted by BGR), as they are outside the scope of this piece. Those interested can read more about Azerbaijans lobbying efforts at, a website that tracks developments in the shady lobbying world.

Flint children exposed to lead suffer from dental problems, learning disabilities, other issues –

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

FLINT, MI Dachelle McDonalds 10-year-old daughter has had numerous dental visits, a dental operation and teeth that seemed to practically fall out of her mouth without any effort.

McDonald isnt entirely sure any of those issues are related to lead exposure, but her daughter, Neveah Dixon, was drinking the lead-poisoned water just like many others six years ago when Flint changed its water source from treated Detroit Water and Sewerage Department water to the Flint River.

She could just pull her teeth out of her mouth when they started getting loose, McDonald said. It was just weird the way her teeth fell out her mouth.

McDonald remembers her daughter as having issues with her teeth for as long as shes had them.

Her teeth - she always has teeth problems, were always at the dentist, McDonald said. Her skin has two-tone on her face, which is weird because no one in my family, no one has skin like that.

In Flint during the water crisis, the percentage of children with elevated blood lead levels nearly doubled citywide, and nearly tripled among children in high risk areas of lead exposure, according to research by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the pediatrician credited with exposing the health crisis.

Lead exposure can affect children in different ways, Hanna-Attisha said.

One of the biggest concerns with the water crisis in regard to teeth is the lack of fluoride from not drinking public water, Hanna-Attisha said. Tap water has added fluoride to prevent dental cavities. When people stopped drinking tap water and transitioned to bottled water, they lost fluoride.

Some bottled water has fluoride, but many does not, Hanna-Attisha added.

In late August, state officials announced children 6 years old and younger during the Flint water crisis were the biggest potential beneficiaries of a historic $600 million settlement with the state of Michigan.

How does lead affect children?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, exposure to lead can seriously harm a childs health. The adverse effects can include damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, learning and behavior problems, and hearing and speech problems.

The health effects can include lower IQ, decreased ability to pay attention, and underperformance in school.

Hanna-Attisha said based on the science of lead, there is no safe level of lead that children can be exposed to.

Its probably the oldest and most well-studied of poisons, Hanna-Attisha said. Weve known about the evil of lead literally for centuries, weve known that lead was bad. Levels that we thought were OK decades ago when we had a lot of lead in paint and gasoline and plumbing - we now know through amazing science and research that theyre no longer OK.

Hanna-Attisha works with Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence, located inside the Genesee Health System at 420 W. Fifth Ave., to offer assessments to children and individuals impacted by the Flint water crisis.

The big crux of our work, especially with the neurodevelopmental center is to see how kids are doing now and to get them what they need, now, Hanna-Attisha said.

To receive a free and Medicaid covered neuropsychological assessment, the individual must meet several requirements. Visit here to see the list.

Lead in paint, gasoline and plumbing were all banned, starting with gasoline in 1970, leaded-paint in 1978, and lead in plumbing in 1986. However, at the time lead free was defined as solder and flux with no more than 0.2 percent lead and pipes with no more than 8 percent, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Lead is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. The half-life (time it takes for the amount to decline by 50 percent) of lead in blood is 30 days; some of the absorbed lead is excreted in urine, sweat, and feces. However, some of the absorbed lead is stored in other body tissues, mostly in bone. A persons body burden of lead is the total amount of lead that has accumulated from exposure over time and is stored in the body, said Perri Zeitz Ruckart, health scientist, for Lead Poisoning Prevention and Surveillance Branch, National Center for Environmental Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Hanna-Attisha said when issues do present after being exposed to lead, its hard to prove causation.

Its really hard because theres a long time lag of the time from when youve been exposed to when you have a problem. In addition, the problem that you have - say its a learning disability - it can be caused by lots of other stuff too, right?

Hanna-Attisha pointed out issues that stem from lead exposure are multifactorial. Conditions such as poverty, poor nutrition and poor schools can all contribute to learning disability or issue.

Its so important that we have sequential assessments of people so that we can continue to follow folks over time, said Hanna-Attisha. So we can see the potential consequences.

Lead in families

Dixon is a bright, 5-foot-9, intuitive fifth grader at Eagles Nest Academy. Her teachers describe her as a leader in class.

She was 4 years old when the water was switched.

All her blood levels are perfect, shes fine as far as thats concerned. Her teeth - the dentist said it could possibly be that (exposure to lead) but all her blood work says shes fine, so nobody said shes lead poisoned. So, its like how do you determine that? McDonald asked.

In adults, approximately 94 percent of the total body burden of lead is stored in the bones and teeth compared to approximately 73 percent in the bones and teeth of children, according to Zeitz Ruckart.

Bone lead has a half-life of years to decades. Although lead in blood represents only a portion of the total body burden, a blood lead test is the best readily available way to assess a persons exposure to lead, Zeitz Ruckart said.

There are many different factors that affect blood lead levels such as the source of exposure, length of exposure, and underlying susceptibility (childs age, nutritional status, and genetics)," Zeitz Ruckart added. "Even in the absence of exposure, blood lead levels can rise during periods of bone turnover, which include periods of growth, metabolic disease, pregnancy, lactation, osteoporosis.

The issue of lead is a complex issue and often new studies are published that reveal more issues and findings as to how lead works and its harmful effects on humans, according to Hanna-Attisha.

McDonald said she talks to her daughter frequently about the lead situation because she knows its a lot for a child to understand.

She had dental surgery back in 2015, because of all the corrosion in her mouth, McDonald said. They put a lot of caps and stuff in her mouth and a bar.

Hanna-Attisha noted in regard to teeth about national studies that showed kids who drank bottled water had more cavities and worse teeth, but less lead exposure.

Healthy Kids Dental has been in the area for quite some time and it offers free dental care for those who are on Medicaid. The Flint Registry refers kids to Mott Dental as well, according to Hanna-Attisha.

Takisha Moller was pregnant with her daughter Destinee Wilson in 2014, the year the city switched its water supply.

I tasted metal when I was pregnant, like every time the water was boiled, I tasted metal and I told him (Destinees father), I cant drink this water, it tastes like metal. But I kept drinking it, Moeller said. I drank it all the way until they finally said lead was in the water, but that was after she was born.

After Mollers daughter was born she continued to boil the water, just as the city advised, to give her newborn baths.

I was feeding my baby lead all this time, drinking all this water, giving her baths in the lead water and I know it can soak through your skin and all of that so my first thought was: Is her brain going to be OK? Because she lived in my womb for 10 months - I was overdue. I was just worried about her well being and her development and stuff.

When Destinee was three or four months old, Moller remembers the city dropping bottled water off at her home for the family to drink, cook and clean with.

Sometimes I want to ignore it, Moller said of the issues shes noticed in her daughter. Sometimes I want to look past it, but you have to face it.

At nearly 2 years old, Moller observed her daughter wasnt making any strides toward talking. The toddler can be aggressive and she has a learning disability, the mother added.

Its just going to be a watch and wait game, I guess, Moller said as she sighed.

While Moller was growing her baby, fibroid tumors were also growing inside her uterus. The mother of one is scheduled to have a hysterectomy.

So now, I cant have any more kids because Im having a hysterectomy soon. I was just pregnant in February, Moller said. They gave me a surgery a year after Destinee was born to remove some of the fibroid tumors, they took them out but they grew back.

Moller said doctors told her the tumors are related to her drinking the lead water.

I try not to think about it, Moller said before she took a long pause. Im a very positive person. I have been through a lot in my life, so I have learned to take the bad things and spin them into something positive for myself because I understand that no matter what happens, the past is the past and you create your own future.

Lead prevention

Childhood lead poisoning is entirely preventable, according to both Hanna-Attisha and Zeitz Ruckart.

Theres no magical treatment besides prevention, Hanna-Attisha said. So when we realized theres not a magic pill we can give our patients, our focus became: what can we do to limit the impact of this exposure?

The focus of the Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence studies how learning and behavior are related to brain development and neural networks through comprehensive neuropsychological assessments.

The center is a resource to help with secondary prevention of lead, said Hanna-Atttisha.

Things that help can help with secondary prevention include good nutrition, educational enrichments and mental health support.

Children can be buffered from a lot of those issues if its implemented in their lives, Hanna-Attisha said.

The Flint Registry, a tool built by the community of Flint to connect people to services and programs to promote health and wellness while navigating a health crisis, can provide support for families in those areas.

A partnering program to help provide good nutrition to the families of Flint is the nutrition prescription program, managed by Michigan State University and Hurley Childrens Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, where $15 for healthy foods are prescribed to young patients by their pediatrician.

Chantel Dawson, research assistant for the nutrition prescription program, collects data from the program.

We aim to help individuals maintain a healthy lifestyle - dietary changes, like longevity, Dawson said. So with the program, we provide a prescription for $15, which can be redeemed at the Farmers' Market or it can also be redeemed at our mobile market, which is Flint Fresh.

Dawson said shes noticed more families have been taking advantage of the prescription since the pandemic.

Ive had individuals tell me that they saved it (the prescription) for Thanksgiving and they cooked a healthy Thanksgiving meal with nothing but vegetables, Dawson said. We had individuals even during the pandemic who werent receiving unemployment or any type of food assistance and they were relying on their appointment with their doctor because if they cant go to the clinic, we also offer services via telehealth.

Dawson said one of the things the program has focused on in the last several months is accessibility. The program has now expanded its delivery services outside of Flint and throughout Genesee County.

We are trying to make sure that we give them accessibility still during the hardest times that were going through, Dawson said.

The CDC supports state and local health departments through cooperative agreements to support childhood lead poisoning prevention activities including strengthening: blood lead testing and reporting, surveillance, linking children to recommended follow-up services, and targeted population-based interventions, according to Zeitz Ruckart.

Our work in recovery is holistic, said Hanna-Attisha. Nobody says that this water crisis was just a lead crisis because it it so much more than that. We have been framing everything as a trauma, this was one trauma and really leaning on the science of trauma and being trauma informed and thats kind of driven our holistic science-based community driven response.

The Importance of Deep Water in Fall Bass Fishing – Wired2Fish

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

As the calendar gets closer to November and December, it's imperative to keep a close eye out for a fall spawn. The large majority of anglers would tell you that bass only spawn in the spring, but that's simply not true. According to nationally renowned fisheries biologist Steven Bardin, it's much more common than you'd think, especially with Florida-genetic bass. And guess what? Florida-genetic bass are becoming increasingly prevalent throughout the country.

"We all know that the spawn starts in the spring," Bardin said. "Those bass will come to bed when the water temperatures reach around 65 degrees. The largest females spawn first, but they don't drop all of their eggs initially. They only drop 50 percent of their eggs at first. They they'll leave that bed and find another bed about a month later. Then they'll do it a third time.

"When summer rolls around, they start producing eggs for the next year. If we have a fall with a prolonged warm stretch, those eggs will ripen and they'll go ahead and spawn. You'll see this more often in low bass-density fisheries when competition is low. So when a one- or two-week warm snap occurs and combines with low density, you'll see a lot of fall spawning."

For the longevity of the hatched fry, this fall spawn has its pros and cons.

"When a bass spawns early, such as in the late fall, their fry will be bigger when all of the other bass spawn in the spring," Bardin said. "That fry will be nearly 3 inches and now it can outcompete the spring fry and even eat them. On the other hand, however, a big female with great genetics can spawn in the fall and then a cold front comes and kills all of the fry. It's a risky proposition."

Bardin also notes that if the water is below 70 degrees during the fall and it suddenly spikes above the 70-degree mark for a week or two, a fall spawn will often be triggered. This doesn't mean you need to go look in dirt-shallow water like you would in the spring, though. Fall spawning activity tends to occur in-you guessed it-shallow areas with adjacent deep water.

This explanation makes a lot of sense to me. I caught the biggest bass of my life, a 13.14-pounder, on November 2, 2017 in two feet of water. I had no idea about the fall spawn at that point, to be honest. The water was a little dirty and I was mindlessly flipping a creature bait at the same limb for about 10 minutes while I was having a conversation with a buddy. After countless flips, I felt a little "tick" at the end of my line and it was game-on.

Bardin isn't just a biologist source for Wired2fish; he's also a friend of mine. So I called him after I caught and released the 13-pounder and he asked me what the weather had been like. I told him it was too warm that week to deer hunt, so I went fishing instead. He simply replied with, "Yep, she was on bed. You caught a fall spawner."

I went back and looked at the video of the catch and all of the pictures and sure enough, her tail was bloody and she looked like she was slap-full of eggs. She was also just a few yards from 15 feet of water. Although I didn't mean to catch her, it was a real eye opener to me. That fish catch changed my approach to fall fishing.

Does Family History Of Diabetes Mean That I Will Inherit It Too? – NDTV Doctor

Sunday, October 25th, 2020

A person is at risk of getting diabetes if s/he has family history of it. But the chances of getting diabetes depend on the person's lifestyle and several other risk factors. Read here to know.

Diabetes risks depends on factos like diet, lifestyle and level of physical activity

Diabetes is largely considered to be inherited, if our parents or anyone in our direct family has diabetes, there is a great possibility that you may inherit it.If you keep eating what your parents and grandparents ate, there is a good chance you will inherit their diabetes. The lifestyle you have so unknowingly inherited from your parents is making you ask this question! Let us get a few facts clear first. Research says that genetics account for 20% of lifestyle disorders, the rest is down to your lifestyle and the environment, of which lifestyle dominates at around 70%.

Having said that when we speak of type 2 diabetes, it is a lifestyle disorder (Type 1 diabetes is the result of a genetic defect and really has no natural cure for it). We call it a lifestyle disorder because it occurs as a result of what you eat, what you think, how you sleep, if you are active, what you do, basically a culmination of your day to day activities. This means, if you alter your lifestyle, there is a 70% chance that you will not inherit diabetes. Seems like a fair deal doesn't it? But you should know where you go wrong, and before diving deeper, be rest assured that your diet alone can have an alarming effect on type 2 diabetes.

We fall prey to the whole genetics and mass psychology trap. We have been made to believe that we will inherit diabetes and other related disorders like cardiovascular disease and cancer just because our elders had them. Well, you do have a similar genetic structure, but you can definitely improve your knowledge on the subject of nutrition and how food forms the very essence of longevity. To take an example here, the whole claim of consuming more animal-based proteins to reduce weight and manage diabetes better is false. The science and research do not back this up 1. While it may give you short terms results, in the long term it proves to be highly detrimental.

We would often see that parents who do not exercise much have the same effect on their kids (ofcourse there will be exceptions from one generation to the other), and similarly if they enjoy junk food, so does the offspring. It is these habits that are being referred to. Also, it is important to note that there is a group of parents who are very health conscious, but is their knowledge on the subject sufficient to ensure that they kids do not inherit diabetes? Sadly, that is not the case. Today, what the food industry deems as healthy, actually isn't. How are we able to consume more and more packaged foods today? Why is the size of the fruit and vegetable corner at the supermarket reducing in size? Well, they don't want us to stay healthy 2. They have been fooling us for decades and we have ended up implementing it all without verifying the facts. This is called mass psychology and modern-day marketing folks. We humans tend to get swayed easily. An advertisement with an elite athlete showcasing a new protein rich snack is released and it has us all running to buy it.

Open your minds and think for yourself for once. Do your research and listen to your body. Our bodies are designed to heal and repair themselves. Diabetes is just an abnormality that can be a thing of the past. There is enough evidence published that people who consume a predominantly vegetarian diet 3 and very little to none of animal-based produce, have shown greater improvement and resilience to health issues like diabetes, hypertension, obesity and heart disorders 4. A diet rich in vegetables, fruits, grains, cereals, nuts & seeds has been proven to promote healthier body weight and BMI, greater insulin sensitivity and hormonal balance.

Before concluding, there has to be a mention that the right kind of natural, plant-based vitamins and supplements should be consumed for preventing/reversing diabetes, and on the whole to maintain longevity and stay clear of any other lifestyle disorders 5. We often fail to realize the power our food possesses. When consumed in the concentrated form, it can have miraculous results in the body 6.

And the answer is NO, you will not inherit diabetes provided you do not blindly follow a lifestyle that has been inherited or falsely created by the food industry. Eat scientifically correct food, get enough sleep, keep moving and stay happy!

Losing hair fast? Applying this natural solution to the scalp resulted in new hair growth – Express

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Hair loss can be the result of complex environmental and genetic processes. In the former camp lies responses to stressful situations and certain cancer treatments. In the genetic camp is androgenetic alopecia - commonly known as pattern baldness. It usually runs in the family, which, on the face of it, seems dispiriting.

Fighting genetics may seem like a losing battle but evidence does suggest you can reverse this form of hair loss.

One strategy that has yielded surprising results is applying a melatonin solution to the scalp.

Most people will associate melatonin with sleep - the hormone plays a central role in the bodys sleep-wake cycle.

As the National Sleep Foundation explains, its production increases with evening darkness, promoting healthy sleep and helping to orient our circadian rhythm.

READ MORE:Hair loss treatment - Dr Sara explains the best type of shampoo to stimulate hair growth

Circadian rhythms are 24-hour cycles that are part of the bodys internal clock, governing important processes such as the sleep-wake cycle.

Theres evidence that the benefits of melatonin extend to treating hair loss.

This is because melatonin also affects hair growth, as the hair growth cycle in mammals is under circadian control, according to The Lifespan Research Institute, a research body that focuses on anti-ageing compounds.

"As with other circadian cycles, the hair growth cycle becomes dysregulated and lower in amplitude with age," explains the research body.

In a randomised double-blind study of 40 women with hair loss, melatonin solution applied to the scalp increased hair growth significantly relative to placebo.

What's more, in a study published in the International journal of trichology, 1891 male and female patients with androgenic alopecia applied a topical melatonin solution for three months.

At three months 61 percent of patients had no hair loss, compared to 12.2 percent at the start; 22 percent had new hair growth at three months compared to four percent at baseline.

The incidence of seborrheic dermatitis also declined, from 34.5 percent at baseline to 9.9 percent at three months.

Seborrheic (seb-o-REE-ik) dermatitis is a common skin condition that mainly affects your scalp.

The skin condition can cause an itchy, flaky rash, which may lead to hair loss due to excessive itching.

According to the NHS, finasteride and minoxidil are the main treatments for male pattern baldness.

"Minoxidil can also be used to treat female pattern baldness. Women shouldn't use finasteride," explains the NHS.

There are a number of drawbacks to consider before taking these treatments.

According to the NHS, these treatments:

These treatments:

Alternatively, some wigs are available on the NHS, but you may have to pay unless you qualify for financial help.

While considering your options, you may benefit from some psychological support.

Your GP may be able to help you get some counselling or you can join a support group, adds the NHS.

Lenny Kravitz on His Signature Scent, His Beach Beauty Routine, and the Secret to His Longevity – Vogue

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

Before lockdown began in March, Lenny Kravitz packed a bag for a week and headed to his home in Eleuthera in the Bahamas. His stay ended up being much longer than that. The singer and guitarist has spent the last six and a half months on the island he loves, returning to his Bahamian roots and living off the land. Save for a bottle of YSL Beautys Y eau de parfum, that is. As the newand lets face it, entirely fittingface of the French fashion houses seductive fougre scent, its become his signature.

Its fresh, its clean, its got spice, says Kravitz of Y, which opens with sparkling notes of green apple and bergamot, with a heart of lavender and geranium thats warmed by a zing of lemony ginger. During this period of being here on this island and living very simplybeing in the ocean, in the sun, and in the bush, as we call itit just fits. The art of presentation has always been a force within Kravitzs life, and like many during these challenging times, hes looked to his choice fragrance to elevate his mood. Im only around a few people and have no social functions, but some days I just need a little lift, explains Kravitz. I put on a nice shirt, and Ill spray on some fragrance, and it just makes me feel better. You dont have to do it for somebody, something, or some function. You can just do it for yourself.

Sticking to whats tried-and-true, Kravitz has been rotating between his rock-and-roll wardrobe signaturesdenim button-downs, love-worn ripped jeans, and printed skinny scarvesas well as following a streamlined beauty routine. The things that I use on my body are the same that Ive always used, he says, rattling off a list of natural oils and butters, including coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter, as well as Dr. Bronners Almond Pure-Castile Liquid Soap, adding, I wash my body in it. I wash my hair with it. I washed my clothes in it. In his haven of the Caribbean, hes also been enjoying the spoilsand skin-care benefitsof the beach, the pearlescent white sand in particular. We have the most beautiful sand here in the Bahamasits very, very, very powdery, very, very fine, he explains. So when Im in the ocean, and I want to scrub my body, I use the sand. Thats what going on over here.

Besides the kind of head-to-toe exfoliation only a one-way ticket to Eleuthera can buy, Kravitz has been staying well, mind and body, by tending to his garden, cooking his own meals, and juicing with daily shots of immunity-boosting ginger. And hes been feeding off the island for his daily workout, an hour-long bike ride, as well. Thats been my form of cardio that I enjoy the most here, rather than being on a treadmill, he says. Its getting out in the sun and riding on the road with a lot of it on the ocean. Its so beautiful, and it gives you time to meditate. For mental clarity, hes also been limiting his news intake in an effort to tune out the noise. I only check the news and whats going on in the world often enough so that Im not in the dark, but Im not watching the television and inside of all of this negativity, he says. In terms of staying creative, Kravitz, who is working on his next album, is letting inspiration come to him in time. Its almost like if you have a radio receiver, and youre turning the dial, and all you hear is static until you finally hear music, he explains of his process. I prefer it that way because then its really pure. Im not involving my own ego or my own ideas or projections. Im getting what Im getting.

While Kravitz has always followed his own path doing what feels right to look and feel his best, he credits genetics and familial role models as the true secrets to his longevityand his impossibly ageless physique. My grandfather lived up into his 90s, and he had a thirst for life, for learning, for growing, and I think Ive inherited that from him, he explains. With the genes that I have from my parents and my grandparents, we dont seem to visibly age like one might think, so all of those things togetherwith, of course, taking care of yourself, putting the right things in your body, and taking care of your mind and spirithave contributed to aging just being about experiencing and living, not about falling apart.

Healthy Aging Month observed nationwide in September – News – The Hutchinson News

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020

September is Healthy Aging Month, an annual observance that deserves more attention this year as the nation deals with a pandemic unlike anything we have experienced for a century. Medical Author Dr. William W. Shiel, Jr. defines aging as the process of becoming older. Aging is not the same for any two people, due to factors including lifestyle, environment and family genetics. According to medical experts, the first signs of aging appears on the surface of the skin during the mid-20s.

More than 80,000 Americans are over the age of 100 and 20,000 have surpassed their 105th birthday, two statistics that continue to grow. Many remain active and live independently. Both major party candidates for president this year are more than 70 years of age.

Aging has been called the greatest known risk factor for most human diseases and can be either physical or psychological. Approximately 150,000 people die daily worldwide, two thirds of which are from age-related issues. Older adults and those who have underlying health conditions such as heart and lung issues and diabetes are at increased risk of severe illness, including COVID-19. Adults 65 years of age and older account for 16 percent of the nations population, but 80 percent of COVID-19 deaths claim this group of people.

The pandemic has resulted in increased stress in the lives of all Americans, and, in particular, those who are older or confined to home.

The effects of stress include:

Needless fear and worry about ones healthChanges in sleep or eating patternsDifficulty concentratingWorsening of chronic health problemsWorsening of mental health conditionsIncreased use of tobacco and/or alcohol

Stories regarding accomplishments of older Americans are more frequent these days and serve as encouragement for all. In 2014, 90-year-old Ernie Andrus walked, or as he said, "jogged" across America to honor the ship he served on during World War I. That same year, former President George H.W. Bush, to celebrate his 90th birthday, parachuted out of an airplane, smiling all the way to the ground, as his frightened family watched nearby.

Locally, Judge Wesley Brown, appointed a federal judge in 1962, served one-year shy of a half-century before passing away in 2011 at the age of 104. In an Associated Press interview on the year of his death, Judge Brown was asked to explain his longevity as a member of the federal judiciary, and his response was brief, to the point, and similar to his traditional courtroom demeanor. "As a federal judge, I was appointed for life or good behavior, whichever I lose first," Brown said. In a follow-up question, the reporter asked how he planned to exit the job, he said, "Feet first."

So, what advice can a healthcare professional possibly give to hearty souls to ensure they will continue healthy living, particularly in these unprecedented times? Keep masks, tissues, and hand sanitizer in your possession when venturing out. If possible, avoid others who are not wearing masks. Ask others around you to wear masks. Make certain your vaccinations and other preventive services are current, stay physically active and practice healthy habits to cope with stress. People of all ages who adhere to these precautionary measures will hasten the day when COVID-19 will be an event of the past. That day could not come any too soon.

Ken Johnson is President and CEO of Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System.

As for what you should eat, the gold standard remains the Mediterranean dietone that is high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, and olive oil, and low on red meatthe only diet, says Barzilai, proven by clinical research to decrease cardiovascular mortality. A recent study in the medical journal Gut found that following it for just one year slowed the development of age-related inflammatory processes.

David Sinclair, Ph.D., Harvard geneticist and author of the bestseller Lifespan: Why We Ageand Why We Dont Have To, says the Mediterranean diet essentially tricks the body into thinking weve been doing exercise and fasting. Of course, this is not a permission slip for bottomless bowls of rigatoni; too much of a good thing is too much. Dan Buettner, the National Geographic Fellow who helped popularize the idea of the blue zonesthe five areas worldwide with the longest-lived denizenssays he follows a rule practiced by the residents of Okinawa, Japan, and stops eating when his stomach is 80 percent full. And perhaps consider occasionally skipping dessert: Research shows that sugar intake accelerates age-related inflammation. The more sugar you eat, the faster you age, says Robert Lustig, professor of pediatric endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco. (The American Heart Association recommends that women keep it under six teaspoons per day.)

Other crucial life practices: adequate sleep and stress management. In blue zones, says Buettner, people downshift all day long, through prayer, meditation, or just taking naps. And scientists are also coming to more fully understand the role that other people play in prolonging life. A 2019 study in the journal SSM-Population Health found that social relationships significantly increase life span in older adults. Neuroscientist Daniel Levitin, author of this years Successful Aging, has found that friendships at age 80 are a bigger predictor of health than cholesterol level. Friends and even neighbors, he writes, protect your brain, while loneliness has been implicated in just about every medical problem you can think of.

But what about the factors you cant control? Most of us dont know whats lurking in our genome and are not often aware we might inherit some disease until we see the symptoms. That is changing, with tests that are leagues beyond 23andMe. The new Preventive Genomics Clinic at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston is the first academic clinic in the country to offer comprehensive DNA sequencing and interpretation of nearly 6,000 disease-associated genes, ranging from common cancers to the rare Fabry disease, which impairs fat breakdown in cells and affects the heart. Roughly 20 percent of people will be carrying a variant for a rare disease, such as hereditary heart problems, says director Robert Green, M.D., medical geneticist at Brigham and Womens. Where a full panel of tests used to cost many hundreds of thousands of dollars, the clinic charges $250 for a smaller panel and $1,900 for full sequencing and interpretation. (These costs are not yet covered by most insurance.)

In the near future, says Barzilai as we finish our walk, we can be healthy and vital in our 90s and beyond. He laughs. It may sound like science fiction, but I promise you, its science. While I can comprehend the misgivings about prolonging life, Ill admit that Im still programmed to crave those extra years, and will adopt what changes I can to make them more vibrant. My role model here is Gloria Steinem, now 86. I plan to live to be 100, she once remarked. Which I would have to do anyway, just to meet my deadlines.

Guest opinion: Why accessible health care is not government takeover – Deseret News

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

I wish to counter many politicians claims that the government seeks to take over our health care system. The specious claims ignore the huge beneficial role government has played, and plays, in improving human health. Our collective good health and longevity derives from a hundred years of federally funded research in public health, human physiology, genetics, surgery, pharmacology, immunology, microbiology, virology and engineering.

Biomedical research at universities, medical schools, hospitals and research laboratories is substantially supported by the government. Few realize that the largest share of funds for training physicians and for postgraduate physician training come directly or indirectly from the government.

Millions of Americans receive health care through Medicare, Medicaid, veterans hospitals, Indian Health Service, Public Health Service, the Uniformed Services (Department of Defense) and others. The government subsidizes health care insurance premiums for thousands of United States civil servants. Without government support, our present health care system would implode. In their polemics, some politicians call this government support socialism or socialized medicine. I call it informed self-interest by a government concerned with the well-being of its citizens.

I practiced government medicine for over 40 years as a United States Air Force pediatrician, biomedical researcher, teacher and administrator. I witnessed massive growth in medical knowledge, the introduction of incredible new technologies and evolution of new medical skills. Hundreds of new drugs, biologics, surgical techniques, vaccines, enhanced genetic knowledge and approaches to improving mental health have revolutionized modern medicine, allowing more accurate diagnosis, real-time health monitoring, and temporary replacement of hearts, lungs and kidneys. Americans now survive cancer more often than ever before.

These new technologies and tools are only possible because the citizens of this country invested in the acquisition of knowledge, tools and services the research enterprise produced. Yet, the United States fails to equitably distribute these advances to all citizens. Health care is rationed based on ability to pay. We often spend large sums to treat patients with complex and life-threatening conditions while basic preventive care is unavailable to many families and children. Unnumbered citizens and families are bankrupted annually by catastrophic illness.

I believe the United States must redress modern health care inequities. There is much debate about how this might be done. It seems to me the fairest solution is a countrywide insurance program, or programs, to provide access to care, education, public health and protection from catastrophic illness for every person and family in the land.

This is not government takeover. It is the responsibility of government to provide life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, not only those who can pay. I urge all to consider voting with an eye to making our wealth of health care resources accessible to all citizens of our great country.

Development of heat-resistant cattle in the U.S. – Post Register

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

There are basically two types of cattle in the world today. One includes the European and British breeds that descended from the original wild cattle (Bos taurus) of those regions. The other includes the more heat-tolerant animals of the tropics (the hump-backed droopy-eared Zebu cattle, Bos indicus) that include the cattle of India, Asia and Africa). Almost all cattle breeds in the U.S. today are of British and European descent, but many ranchers in the South and Southwest prefer cattle with some Zebu breeding because they are more suited to that environment.

The American Brahman was developed from several strains of cattle imported from India between 1854 and 1926, and from imported Zebu cattle from Brazil. Since then, several American breeds and composites have been created using Brahman bloodlines, including Santa Gertrudis, Brangus, Beefmaster, etc.

Dr. Jan Bonsma of South Africa was a famous cattle geneticist and student of breed efficiency, selecting cattle for the most functional traits. He was involved in the development of two new breeds, the Bonsmara and the Beefmaster. He developed the Bonsmara by crossing native Afrikaner cattle (Zebu) with Hereford and Shorthorn to develop a hardier animal than the British breeds, with better beef quality and fertility than the Zebu. Today the Bonsmara breed he created is the most numerous breed in South Africa and these cattle have been imported to other countries around the world including the U.S.

Bonsmas concept of functional efficiency in cattle was that we need to adapt the cattle to their environment, and not the other way around. He was an advisor to Tom Lasater, who created Beefmaster cattle in the U.S. Bonsmas principles of functional efficiency and Lasaters six essentials of Beefmaster breeding created a type of cattle that can adapt to harsh environments and efficiently convert grass to a well-muscled meat carcass.

Beefmaster cattle were the first American composite breed (combination of three or more breeds). In the early 1930s, Lasater developed this blend of breeds in southern Texas. Beefmasters are a composite made up of roughly one-half Bos Taurus genetics using Hereford and Shorthorn, and one-half Bos Indicus genetics (Brahman).

The American Brahman was created earlier by using Nelore cattle from Brazil (a Zebu type that came originally from India), the Gir (a dairy breed from India) and the Guzerat--a breed developed in Brazil from the Kankrej cattle imported into Brazil from India between 1875 and 1964. The Guzerat was very instrumental in creation of the American Brahman.

The blend of British breeds with zebu type cattle (providing more heat tolerance and insect resistance) to create the Beefmaster was of great benefit to cattle raisers in Texas and other southern regions of North America. In 1937, Lasater closed his herd and no outside genetics have been introduced into the breed since that time. In

1954, the Beefmaster breed was recognized by the USDA as an American breed. Currently, Beefmaster Breeders United is the fifth-largest breed registry in the U.S. Over the last 70 years, intense selection for economically important traits has resulted in a homozygous beef breed that has the growth potential of a hybrid.

Lasater selected cattle on what he called the six essentials of disposition, fertility, weight, conformation, milk production, and hardiness. Todays Beefmaster breeders also select for calving ease, fast early growth, moderate frame, easy fleshing ability and longevity. Adhering to Lasaters six essentials make these additional goals easier and faster to accomplish.

Beefmaster cattle have strong maternal traits as well as excellent growth and carcass traits. They are well known for their ability to handle heat and drought, with more insect resistance than most British and European breeds. They tend to be moderate in size, and generally light red to dark red in color, although some have white mottling on their faces and underline. The blend of Zebu and Bos taurus creates the most hybrid vigor of any cattle cross because these types are so unrelated. The blend has created super cows.

Viking genetics and robots working together at Alderston Mains – The Scottish Farmer

Sunday, September 13th, 2020

Owning a Jersey herd that produces 8100 litres at 5.75%BF and 4.01%P (780kg fat plus protein), can prove problematic knowing where to turn to continue improving performance. But for Andrew Hastie and his family at Alderston Mains near Haddington in East Lothian, the answer has come through a marriage of focussed management, high quality genetics and up-to-date milking technology.

Having experienced success through a combination of the Viking Jersey and robotic milking during a gradual switch over the last three years, the Hasties have decided to follow this process to its logical end. This year, they will add their final two Lely Astronaut A5 robots, bringing their total to six (2 x A4 and 4 x A5), and theyll complete the switch to using genetics exclusively from the Viking countries (Sweden, Finland and Denmark).

With a modest acceptance that the herds production is nearer the top than the bottom, Mr Hastie remarks: Were not really far ahead of the average when you go to Denmark.

And therein lies the overriding reason for the familys choice of genetics, which sees the Vikings gradually take over from all other bloodlines.

The farms foundations were laid in the 1950s when grandfather, David Hastie, started the herd with native UK Jerseys. Since that time, Andrew and his parents, Gordon and Vivian, and brother, David, have fine-tuned both the farm and the herd, to reach the exceptional performance of today.

Over that period, the farm has switched from a mixed enterprise to one thats purely focussed on dairy, with all grass and arable crops across its 400 acres now grown exclusively for the 360-head herd. With a target of increasing the herd to 430 head, the plan is to consolidate numbers at this level.

Weve always enjoyed the Jersey and found her to have robustness and some health benefits over the Holstein, says Mr Hastie. We operate a sort of hybrid system where we want high yields but like the cows to go outside for exercise and grazing even with the robots as we feel its good for their health and keeps our feed costs down in summer.

Close attention has always been paid to the type of genetics that will best meet the farms targets, which began in the earliest days of the herd.

My grandfather was an early adopter of artificial insemination; hed use the best bulls he could get from the USA, New Zealand and Denmark and we continued breeding this mixture for a long time, he said.

Around 15 years ago we dropped the New Zealand bulls, largely because their genetics is driven by milk solids weight-based contracts, which are not quite like our own.

The USA we felt was at the other extreme, and our experience was that the taller, leaner and more angular animals didnt live so long.

We feel the Viking breeding programme has the balance just right, with cows which look long-lasting and producing high quality milk. They are particularly suited to our contract with Grahams Family Dairy, where we need to produce at least 5% fat for the Gold Top range.

In some past summers we had been slightly short of butterfat but find the VikingGenetics bulls are helpful in boosting that.

Around 18 months ago the farm also switched to sexed dairy semen which is now used alongside Aberdeen Angus beef.

Also opting to introduce genomic testing for heifers, Mr Hastie says this is giving an early indication of genetic potential across a range of traits.

When you have a cow on the ground you have a good idea of how she should breed, he says. But with a heifer, all you have is the animals pedigree, so a genomic test adds accuracy for many different traits.

There are also traits on the VikingGenetics bar chart which you dont normally have, he adds. This includes hoof health and saved feed index, which are helping us to breed cows with better feet and more efficiency.

We only started genomic testing recently but plan to test all 200 of our heifer calves born each year, he says. This supplies a linear bar chart, just like youd have for a bull, and you can see straight away what you need to improve.

It also ranks the heifers on the Nordic Total Merit [NTM] index, which is not unlike the UKs PLI [Profitable Lifetime Index].

Also using VikMate, the VikingGenetics mating program, Mr Hastie is able to set his own targets and receive a best-choice mating for each animal in the herd.

He says: If I want to focus on a particular trait, I can change that myself when running the program. This could be for hoof health, stature, milk quality or any other trait.

In fact, were already seeing big improvements in feet and legs through corrective breeding and starting to see changes in other areas.

This includes reducing udder depth and strengthening udder support we think theyll remain higher for longer and making other changes to help robotic milking.

This has involved a change of mindset and were now looking to widen rear teat placement as well as lengthen teats something we didnt do in the past.

We have also moved away from selection for production, now keeping our focus on health and functional traits. We have found that the milk is there, even without looking for it, which allows us to focus improvement on other areas.

Also aiming to improve the herds management and efficiency, the next robots to be installed will help in this endeavour.

He says: Our sixth robot will be a grazing robot, which will be used exclusively by our late lactation cows. Theyll be in strawed yards in winter and graze in summer, only receiving concentrates while at grass, when theyre having no total mixed ration.

Im confident well maintain their yields and should manage body condition score better. I think it will save 1-2 per head each day in feed costs for the last 30-40 days of lactation.

Asked how the Viking-bred cattle have impacted profitability, he believes its too early to say with any precision.

In a few years, when nearly all the herd is Danish, Ill be able to tell you but all I can say now is that we are very pleased.
