Falconry Goddesses

Ourc regnant falconry goddesses, Helen Maconald and Lauren McGough, do a podcast TOGETHER at the BBC.More please!

Full of good sense and unexpected insights-; as Helen says., only Lauren would fly an eagle because it is so SERENE.

Lauren is currently in S Africa chasing drunken  monkeys with  a "little" male Crowned eagle. We hope to see her here soon.

sorry to hear about your parkinsons my dad i guess just does from it old age and dementia too but i think mostly the Parkinsons did him in we didnt get along so I dont know much But I have another long shot if you get desperate enough. Im actually thinking of trying it myself just cause i dont lie late midlle age but Im crazy if i do it any time soon. well you decide heres what i read up on it.

There a common antibiotic doxycycline that is also used to (its been awhile so im going to make a hack of this) to induce cells back to pluripotency stem cells. So this one doc decides to try dosing these mice they use in labs that have a genetic mutation that ages them quickly, and these mice started growing their hair again and becoming more active they seemed to be getting younger. so they mess around and eventually biopsy them and find its not just external their internal organs and tissues have regenerated they have actually grown younger, and this is the best part no cancer which has always been a thing in these type of efforts. So Im intrigued right.I mean how bad can it be to take something you might be prescribed anyway and since i have a naughty habit of prescribing things and self surgery since my first microscope kit I would think that. But it can be that easy I must need a million dollar lab. so I track down the paper and slog through the genetic biology terms thinking really should have finished high school or at least grade school. And guess what its not that hard what they did that was different was they lightly dosed in a pattern then stop then resume. basically they drag you slowly backwards in time without letting the cells get up to speed and get any inertia going. all right so now i need to find the dosage they used and scale it up and find an old person thats going to die anyway - just kidding though it crossed my mind.But you'll do. so i didnt find the dose in that paper and was worrying its too proprietary and who knows what else they left out but set an alert and last month they announced they got permission to do a trial on i think it was people with brain cancer. well that told me two things I wasnt crazy and they have the dosage info somewhere probably in a FDA submission. So I am looking and all my links I saved are dead except the original magazine artical which is not enough detail but enough to search if it interests you. heres one of his early papers on a related topic hes now in cali at the saulk inst

If you actually do this you have to let me know MICHAELMILESRYAN@GMAI.COM BTW Im almost a falconer too well got my licences sponsor etc passed it all but had to come back to NYC for a few years sometimes i live in my idaho mtn homestead.
anyway hope you can beat this thing looks like i may have it in my blood so if the venom works let me know too

By drunken monkey do you mean one that's juiced from eating fermenting fruit? And do they feed the monkey to the eagle or eat it themselves?
