One of the worst things about the current healthcare system in the United States is the lack of choice we have as consumers. Most of us aren’t able to choose our own doctors or to have a say in the care that we receive. If Matt Reimann has his way, personalized health will change this.
Matt Reimann is the Australian-born founder of ph360. His goal is to create a system of personalized health that will give each of us control over our medical future.
The United States consistently ranks second worldwide in terms of dollars spent for healthcare, yet we are ranked 24th by the World Health Organization for life expectancy. Our system [...]
The earth is predominately covered in water and, since time immemorial, marine life has made important contributions to the progression of human civilization. Just for examples’ sake, we call to mind how important aquatically derived products have been to different peoples across times and places. The ancient Greeks and Romans used shellfish to create vibrant dyes for beautiful fabric.

There. I said the unspeakable.
The extinction of bees would pose an extremely grave [...]
In this follow-up interview with Lt. Col. Scott Mann, we delve deeper into the wounds of the Middle East and how we can look at fixing this situation. Part of it is a battle of ideology. Mann’s opinion is that certain elements can’t and won’t change because they believe they’re ushering in the apocalypse. Not much sense in having a rational conversation with that it seems.
What about women and elders? How can we strengthen communities? How can we learn more about the local history of the places we have issues?
We covered a lot of topics and, as a former Green Beret, he brought some powerful insights back from 14 years of war he has waged against [...]
