The idea that "thoughts become things" has become a meme in popular culture. It’s held as a firm proposition in…metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind. But are these claims scientifically accurate? What does the scientific evidence tell us about the scope of the human mind to transform thoughts into reality?New research and new discoveries in epigenetics, neuroscience, electromagnetism, psychology, cymatics (the study of wave phenomena), public health, and quantum physics are demonstrating that thoughts can indeed be profoundly creative. In Mind to Matter, award-winning author Dawson Church examines the scientific facts and reviews the studies that show, step by step, exactly how our minds create material form. As each piece of the puzzle falls into place, the science turns out to be even more astonishing than the metaphysics.Throughout the book, Church shares illuminating case histories —up-close, authentic personal accounts of people who had an experience of turning mind into matter. Drawn from the worlds of medicine, sports, business, healing, art, and scientific discovery, these stories run the gamut from profound to inspiring to heart-wrenching. Meticulously researched evidence is presented in highly relatable form, using engaging, understandable, nontechnical analogies. Photos and illustrations enrich the text.As we discover how the universe operates synchronistically, we come to understand that while we have individual local minds, we also participate in universal nonlocal mind. Mind to Matter shows us that as we take charge of our individual power to create, we have the potential, as a species, to catalyze a transformation of our whole world.

Accounting for almost two-thirds of the country’s land mass, northern Canada is a vast region, host to rich natural resources…and a diverse cultural heritage shared across Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents. In this book, the authors analyse health and health care in northern Canada from a perspective that acknowledges the unique strengths, resilience, and innovation of northerners, while also addressing the challenges aggravated by contemporary manifestations of colonialism. Old and new forms of colonial programs and policies continue to create health and health care disparities in the North. Written by individuals who live in and study the region, Health and Health Care in Northern Canada utilizes case studies, interviews, photographs, and more, to highlight the lived experiences of northerners and the primary health issues that they face. In order to maintain resilience, improve the positive outcomes of health determinants, and diminish negative stereotypes, we must ensure that northerners – and their cultures, values, strengths, and leadership – are at the centre of the ongoing work to achieve social justice and health equity.

El libro que revela la compleja telaraña de influencias, intereses y privilegios en el proceso de vacunación peruano Pocos escándalos…públicos de la historia reciente en el Perú han expuesto los hilos del poder con tanta rapidez e impacto como el caso de las vacunas contra la COVID-19, aplicadas en secreto a medio centenar de privilegiados, entre los que se encuentra el expresidente Martín Vizcarra. El equipo periodístico de OjoPúblico ha realizado un exhaustivo trabajo de investigación sobre estas prácticas irregulares, de donde se desprenden varias interrogantes: ¿Cómo fue que un grupo de médicos pudo aplicar las candidatas a vacunas violando principios bioéticos, con la autorización de las autoridades sanitarias del país y vulnerando protocolos esenciales de lo que debía ser un hito en la historia médica peruana? ¿Por qué una pandemia se convierte en un asunto de geopolítica? ¿Cuántas muertes justifican el oportunismo político? #Vacunagate examina el entramado de ciencia, diplomacia, intereses empresariales, vínculos políticos, componendas entre el sector público y privado, y otros factores que explican lo que podría ser una de las mayores muestras de abuso de poder en medio de la pandemia.
