SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Role Models: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

family
Family dynamics often make Christmas a tricky time.
As a social species, human beings are highly influenced by the people in their immediate environment and the world at large. Role models, whether they be parents, teachers, neighbors, celebrities or world leaders, provide us with an example of personal development and serve as motivators to help us reach our goals. Personal success depends on behaving in certain ways and not behaving in other ways so on this episode of the Health and Wellness we'll discuss the topic of role models -- those who inspire us to great heights as well as those who set a bad example.

Stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health Segment where the topic will be stress free vet visits for your pets.

SOTT Focus: Behind the Headlines: Comey Trumped, Media Stumped, France Humped

trump comey
"Oh, and by the way, you're fired."
If Trump is smart like he claims he is, he'd use the media bias against him to his advantage. Last week he appears to have done just that, firing FBI Director James Comey on the eve of a surprise meeting with Russian foreign minister Lavrov in the White House. The reaction from most media talking heads was predictable, loudly bleating that this move is proof that Trump is taking orders from the Kremlin. Their reaction was so over-the-top that even Senator Lindsey Graham had to talk them down from their hysteria.

It's easy to produce endless streams of fake news and repeat the same talking points across a global media empire when you control such an empire, but the danger for those interests it serves is that, with every passing week, they are alerting more and more of the hitherto disinterested masses to the increasingly blatant psychopathology of the entrenched elites. The more the media must lie to bridge the reality gap between the elites and the people, the more absurd its narratives become.

A case in point is the French presidential election: how credible is it, to French voters, that the candidate who was the fullest representation of everything they had come to detest in previous governments (for those 'of the right'; the destruction of traditional values and kowtowing before foreign powers - and for those 'of the left'; the destruction of the welfare state and the enrichment of the elites at the expense of the people) won more votes than candidates who spoke to some or all of their concerns?

Join us this Sunday 14 May from 6-8pm CET (4-6pm UTC, 12-2pm EST) as we go Behind the Headlines to find that scarce commodity: the real news!

SOTT Focus: Behind the Headlines: French Election Hijinks, Russia Gives Trump His Safe Zones

Macron hacking
Today lightweight Emmanuel Macron enters the ring to do battle with Marine Le Pen in the French presidential elections. By any objective measure, Macron would be laughed off the stage and back into that hole in the Rothschilds' basement he crawled out of. But no, it looks like he's slated to win, thanks to a remarkably biased media campaign and enough foreign meddling to make a neocon blush. Not to mention a conveniently timed "Russian hack attack" that is perhaps too little too late, but which will provide months of material for anti-Russian rhetoric from France's robo-banker non-entity.

In other news, Russia, Iran and Turkey have put together a plan whose implementation could spell the end of the war in Syria. With a little help from Trump on the sidelines, the Astana group has agreed to create four "de-escalation zones" in Syria. Once more, the U.S. played no major role in the negotiations, though Putin did speak to Trump about it over the phone, and Lavrov says they used some of the Americans' ideas. Are things looking better for Russian-US relations, and a coming end to 6-year dirty war in Syria?

Tune in today to Behind the Headlines to find out and hear live coverage of the French election.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Avoiding the amygdala hijack - Strategies for surviving the signs of the times

brain chemicals, amygdala
On this episode of the Health and Wellness Show we spoke about the amygdala, two almond shaped clusters located in the limbic ring of the brain. In neuroscience the amygdala is referred to as the 'emotional sentinel', it is the specialist in emotional matters, where all passion originates.

Have you ever had the experience where you totally lost control, only later realizing you had no idea what or how you were set off? The experience is known as the 'amygdala hijack' - the amygdala takes over before the 'thinking brain' has a chance to respond. In today's crazy world how can we avoid the amygdala hijack? What are some strategies we can employ in everyday life that will lead to greater emotional intelligence? Join us as we talk about the warning signs that lead to this neural hijack and how can we navigate these uncertain times with calm, collected mental clarity.

Also, stay tuned for Zoya's Pet Health segment, where she gives us some fun facts about cockroaches.

SOTT Focus: Behind the Headlines: Facts Intrude on the Reality Creators: The Rapid Decline of the American Empire

trump on presidency
While he campaigned on removing corruption from Washington politics and dialing back on US military aggression overseas, Trump appears to have learned a few hard lessons in his 1st 100 days in office. The US 'deep state' cannot be so easily dismantled, and it appears Trump has been forced to concede to the reality that, since America was built on the domination of other nations, it must continue to dominate if it is to survive in its current form.

But those pesky concepts - reality and facts - keep intruding on the dream of a New American Century. From Syria to North Korea (and everywhere in between) the US is being thwarted by the relatively quiet and unshakable resolve of Russia and China to assert their right to international preeminence as the largest and most populous nations on the planet. More to the point, the 'center' of the globe is clearly Eurasia, while America sits isolated from this center by the world's two largest oceans.

This week on Behind the Headlines, we'll be bringing you an across-the-board update on the general state of the world, what's hot, what's not, and what the near future is likely to bring, politically, militarily, socially and environmentally.

SOTT Focus: Behind the Headlines: French elections, UK elections, and the Korean Question

cnn french elections
With snap elections called for June, the UK joins a plethora of 'civilized' countries going to the ballot box this year. The world as we know it may be falling apart, but at least people can still vote in referenda and elections, which is a good thing, right?

Russian hacking, the 'deep state', anti-establishment candidates, 'terror' attacks, fake polls and media bias; today's election in France has marked similarities with last year's US elections. The same goes for the UK, where the 'unelectable' Jeremy Corbyn runs against the British 'deep state' in June.

Meanwhile, in Trumpland, war against North Korea is 'on the table'. The Neocon-era 'clash of civilizations' between the 'civilized' world and the 'axis of evil' wasn't meant to survive Trump's victory, but it has...

Today on Behind the Headlines we're taking a look at the line-up in today's first round of the French election, looking ahead to the UK election, and assessing the likelihood of an actual showdown between West and East in northeast Asia.

SOTT Focus: The Health & Wellness Show: Yoga Demystified

yoga
What is yoga and why has it become so popular in today's world? Does it really help relieve stress, increase stamina, improve mental health and lead to 'enlightenment'? In 2016 more than 36 million people in the U.S. were practicing some form of Yoga. Has this ancient practice been watered down, and sold out? Is there a dark side that practitioners and teachers alike experience? On this episode of the Health and Wellness show we will discuss the science and research that draws many to the practice. Yoga is not just about flexibility or the ability to do difficult postures, but rather it is about developing awareness of the body, mind and spirit. Join us as we demystify the practice and touch on many misconceptions about what it really means to 'do yoga'.

SOTT Focus: The Truth Perspective: Interview with Gordon M. Hahn: Revolution, regime change and jihad

gordon hahn
The recent terror attack in St. Petersburg, Russia, is nothing new. Russia has been waging a war on Islamic terrorism for the last 20 years. What started as a homegrown Chechen separatist movement was quickly hijacked by elements of the so-called global Islamist jihad - veterans of the Afghan-Arab mujahedin and affiliates of al-Qaeda. While many commentators in the West were happy to write off the Chechen terrorists as "freedom fighters", Gordon Hahn was one of the first in the West to sound the alarm in his book Russia's Islamic Threat. His predictions came true when former "President of Ichkeria" Dokka Umarov founded the Caucasus Emirate in 2007, the subject of his next book, The Caucasus Emirate Mujahedin. After the creation of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, most of the CE's fighters defected to join the Islamic State's jihad, where many have met their fate.

Today on the Truth Perspective, we interview Dr. Hahn about his work on Russia's Islamic threat, as well as his research on regime change and revolution. We'll also discuss ideas from his first book, Russia's Revolution from Above: Reform, Transition, and Revolution in the Fall of the Soviet Communist Regime, and his upcoming book Ukraine Over the Edge: Russia, the West and the "New Cold War". You can read his work on his Russian and Eurasian Politics blog at Gordonhahn.com.
