Mark Campbell, Frank Johnson and Antony Rotunno for a four-way discussion on the 1978 conspiracy thriller, Capricorn One, starring Elliott Gould, James Brolin, Branda Vaccaro and Hal Holbrook, written and directed by Peter Hyams. About to embark upon the first crewed mission to Mars, three NASA astronauts (played by James Brolin, Sam Waterston and OJ Simpson) find themselves suddenly removed from their command module, minutes before lift-off, and flown to a secret desert base. There they learn of an outrageous plan, hatched by establishment conspirators, to fake the Mars landing using a TV studio, props and themselves as actors—a deception in which they are forced to be complicit. Picking up on the trail of the conspiracy is news reporter Robert Caulfield (Elliott Gould), who goes further and further down the proverbial Rabbit Hole as he tries to make sense of the increasing anomalies. But not all goes well—(or, perhaps, not all seems to go well)—with the plan. Upon re-entry into Earth's atmosphere, the astronauts' (crewless) module breaks up. Now, they are officially dead—their existence a threat to the lying narrative. Their only hope is to escape and reveal the plot to an incredulous world.

"In the huddle, that's kind of what I ended with: At the end of the day, you don't know going into a season like this if everything is going to work out. We are here with an opportunity to be successful...We said it at the regional meet – because you could kind of feel it building and our Top 5 were really dialed in and running well. I said, 'Take the time and appreciate what you're doing right now. There's no guarantee of it. All you can ask for is an opportunity.' And they really took advantage of that. I'm thankful for these people I'm surrounded by. This staff is awesome. This team is awesome." North Carolina State coach Laurie Henes joins the show just days after the Wolfpack won the team's first-ever NCAA cross country title. Early on in the conversation, you'll be quick to hear Coach Henes point out that NC State won AIAW Cross Country titles in 1979 and 1980 before the NCAA. She knows her NC State history because as an athlete, she was an NCAA champion and a six-time All-American for them and then went on to have a professional career that included representing the U.S. at the World Track & Field Championships in Sweden in 1995. She finished just two spots away from making the Olympic team the following year. By that point, she had already been a member of the NC State coaching staff for four years. Now, she's been the women's head coach for 16 years. In this conversation with me and my co-host Mac Fleet, you'll hear more about how she's fostered and created such a successful team and atmosphere and a bit about her thoughts on the success of female coaches within the NCAA. Right after we got off the call with her, she was named the Southeast Regional Coach of the Year and I'm sure that's not the last honor that's going to come from this remarkable year for her and the team.

1Th. 5:16-18  Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is GOD's will for you in Christ Jesus. One thing you can never have too much of is THANKSGIVING.  GOD never says, “Enough, you may stop now.”   Prayer may go unanswered but Thanksgiving is never unanswered.    Here are 4 powerful truths about THANKSGIVING… ----more----   #1 - Thanksgiving is the perfect spiritual practice I've seen wrong prayer but never wrong Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is always right...Thanksgiving is always GOOD. Psa. 92:1 It is a GOOD THING to give thanks unto the LORD The Thanks-Giver is a Good-doer. In any situation, those who give GOD Thanks always do the Good Thing.  When you don't know what else to do Giving Thanks to GOD is always the Right Thing to do.  And that's because the Attitude of Gratitude Increases Altitude. If you want to increase your Altitude with GOD the Attitude of Gratitude is how you get there.  In fact, if you want to soar with GOD don't just be a Thanks-Giver but become a Thanks-Liver.  GOD's Frequent Flyers all know, you must reach Cruising Altitude before the cabin service can begin.  So practice Thanks-Living and you can live at Cruising Altitude.  Then angels will come out with your blessings!  People often say, “I don't even know what to pray for.”  But GOD already knows what you need.  And when you Thank Him for being your Provider you'll reach Cruising Altitude, and what you need will come out.  Is. 9:6-7 Of the INCREASE of his GOVERNMENT and peace there shall be NO END, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The ZEAL of the LORD of hosts will perform this. Thanksgiving is the perfect spiritual practice because it's the music of the Kingdom of GOD, and gateway to His Increase.   #2 - Appreciation Appreciates When your circumstances depreciate express your gratitude to GOD for being the Glory and Lifter of your head.  For he who Appreciates GOD will Appreciate.  How can we not appreciate the ONE who owed us nothing, but gives us everything. 1Cor. 15:56-57 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.  But THANKS be to GOD, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! Thanksgiving to GOD for Jesus is how we rise above the depreciation of Death and Sin. You can never rise above your appreciation of GOD When you lift up Thanksgiving YOU will be lifted up.  Your life will follow the direction of your Appreciation.  When your Thanksgiving goes up you will follow.  Remember the Kingdom rule: The Appreciator will Appreciate.  You will never find a Thanksgiver where you last saw him.  Because GOD will make him to appreciate and will move him forward.    #3 - GOD Is the Thanks-Giver's KEEPER   Phil. 4:6-7 ...in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests  be made known unto GOD.  And the peace of GOD, which passes all understanding, shall KEEP your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Anyone can believe in GOD's promises.  But the Thanksgiver becomes the Beneficiary because Thanksgiving files the claim! When the actions of life are against you, Thanksgiving is the reaction that will KEEP you.  GOD is looking to become the KEEPER of that person who reacts to the actions of life with Thanksgiving!  And that leads us to #4…   #4 - You Can Confront Every Situation With Thanksgiving To GOD! Psa. 107:1-2 O GIVE THANKS unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever.  Let the REDEEMED of the Lord SAY SO, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; Thanksgiving is the SAY SO of the Redeemed.  We thank the Redeemer for what He HAS DONE because that is what He WILL DO!  Thanksgiving for past Redemptions is the SAY SO that links them with today's needs!  When life wants to introduce you to disease, give Thanks to GOD for the Stripes of Jesus and introduce that disease to Jesus the Healer! If you suffer great loss and don't know how to respond.  Give Thanks to GOD with the Redeemed life you still have.  For He has said... Is. 51:11 Therefore The REDEEMED of the LORD SHALL RETURN, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. Blessing can Return from any part of a Redeemed person's life who lives as a Thanks-Giver!

Scripture For Today:Philemon 1:6“I pray that your partnership with us in the faith may be effective in deepening your understanding of every good thing we share for the sake of Christ.”Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 3Words.  Your words. We have been studying from Genesis 1:1-4 in how God used HIS Words to create everything. Yesterday, we seen how God spoke LIGHT into being…and then we discovered, that this is referring to JESUS, not the suns and stars. JESUS IS the LIGHT of the world!  Praise God! We also seen that each member of the God Head was identified in these verses. God is mentioned. The Holy Spirit (the Spirit of God) is mentioned…but where is Jesus? In verse 3 God said, “LIGHT BE – and LIGHT WAS.” And since Jesus IS the Light – this must be referring to HIM. Not that God “created” Jesus…but that is where He separated JESUS for the world – for Creation itself.  The point I'm getting to is this… James 3:9 says ALL people are “made in the likeness of God.” In Romans 8:29, we read “For those whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first born among many brothers…” In John 17:21, we read “That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be one in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” 1 John 3:2 says, “We are God's children NOW, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know – that when He (Jesus) appears, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM…because we shall see him as He is…”  I could go on and on… The point being – If you are born again – you are re-created on the inside into the image of Christ who is the image of God. Which means WE are in the image of our Heavenly Father… But it does not stop there.  Jesus gave us HIS authority to rule and reign in this earth by using HIS NAME to TAKE AUTHORITY from Satan whenever and wherever he raises his ugly head. Amen! We NEVER hear God speaking doubt and unbelief.  We NEVER hear Jesus speaking doubt and unbelief. WE SHOULD NEVER speak doubt and unbelief… If we are – it usually because there is a devil, like in the cartoons, standing next to you telling you how unworthy you are because of all you have done wrong in your life.  But – if you TAKE AUTHORITY over that devil and command him using the Name of Jesus to LEAVE – he will leave. He has no choice. The ONLY one that has ANY CHOICE here – is YOU. You either believe it, receive it and walk in it… Or you don't. The choice is yours.   We will take it up here again tomorrow.

Scripture For Today: 2 Chronicles 6:20“May your eyes be open toward this temple day and night, this place of which you said you would put your Name there. May you hear the prayer your servant prays toward this place.”Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 2Words.  Words are one of THE most important things about prayer that you can learn about. Yesterday, we looked at Genesis 1:1 – 4 and how that sets the tone for EVERYTHING else in the Bible. It all revolves around WORDS.  Mainly, the Words of God! And, since the Bible is the inspired Word of God – the each and every word, each and every dot over each and every “I” and every comma or period are also inspired. To believe otherwise is unbelief in the God's Word.  I know I'm stepping all over spiritual toes out there right now. But I'm not just stepping on them – I'm going to start jumping up and down on them now… get ready! Praise God! Let's look again at Genesis 1:1 – 4:  “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” So, picture this with me… there is NOTHING.  The earth HAD NO FORM. It was a void. Nothing.  Darkness was there. Darkness is always referred to Satan. God is Light and in Him there is no darkness. That is how, yesterday, we determined that God had regulated Satan to this void. He was in nothing. NOTH-ING!  Then, God shows up… NOTHING is happening. NOTHING.  He's just there, in the Holy Spirit, observing that there is NOTHING physical going on.  But, on the inside – God has the entire plan. He knows the end from the beginning. To bring it to fruition – God had to DO something. He had to bring what was INSIDE of Himself, into being. How did He do that? WORDS! He spoke WORDS. Words that were inside of Him that described exactly what He desired to happen. He did not mince His Words. He did not say, “Ok…let me see a sun…”  Then a sun appeared. No that would not work. What if the sun appeared on the other side of the earth. It would still be nightfall on one side and daylight on the other.  No – God did not mince His Words. He spoke EXACTLY what was supposed to happen. Look at verse 3 now… “And God SAID – “LET THERE BE LIGHT!”  And there WAS – LIGHT”  Verse 4: “And God SAW – physical seeing here – THE LIGHT. And it was GOOD.” Amen! Who, does the Bible refer to, as the LIGHT of the world? JESUS! Remember where we are at here…God speaking the Words that are INSIDE OF HIM.  God only saying exactly what He wants to come to pass.   I truly believe that right HERE, in Genesis 1, is when JESUS – who was with God and who WAS God – became the third part of the God Head.  Think about that.  We have “GOD” in verse one. We have the Spirit of God (or the Holy Spirit) in verse 2.   Now, we have “THE LIGHT” that was brought into the WORLD and it came about through THE WORD which means it was inside of God all along. And when God SPOKE the Word that was in Him… LIGHT BE – He could have said, “JESUS – LIGHT OF THE WORLD – BE!” And then the Bible says, “AND LIGHT WAS.”  JESUS WAS now part of God giving light to the world!  And we KNOW this was not a sun or star because the Bible is very clear these were not created until day four. Amen! Folks, I'm just trying to get you to read DEEPER into the Bible instead of taking it at face value. We are out of time for today – but, once again, we will take this up again tomorrow.

Scripture For Today: Matthew 24:20“Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath…”Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 1Words.  Words are one of THE most important things about prayer that you can learn about. Do you remember the grade school rhyme that went, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me?”  It sounded cute. But it was filled with unbelief.  Plus, if you were facing down a bully, he would usually stop using words and turn it into something that “could” hurt you! My point, and we've discussed this over and over, is WORDS MATTER.  Your words matter. More importantly, The WORD OF GOD matters the most! So, if God's Word, and Jesus IS the Word of God  made flesh, matters THE MOST… And you words matter, let's say, “second most,” Wouldn't work out THE BEST if your words matched up with God's Words in every situation? Think about this… What created EVERYTHING? God's Words. Nothing happened until GOD SPOKE. Go to Genesis 1:1-4 and let's take a look at it… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” That heaven, by the way, is NOT where God resides. It is talking about SPACE. (singular and notice the lower case “h”) Later on, it talks about the atmosphere…but I digress… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” So, picture this with me… there is NOTHING.   The earth HAD NO FORM. It was a void. Nothing.  Darkness was there.  Elsewhere, we can read that “God is light.” And darkness always refers to the devil and evil, correct? Could it be that this was Satan's dwelling after God kicked him out of Heaven?  Jesus said He “saw satan fall like lightning, from Heaven and cast down to the earth.”  Could this have been where Satan was cast into because of his transgression? It makes sense, if you think about it.  God wants to SHOW Satan how mistaken he was in thinking “nobody could love and worship God unless God “makes them do it.” Then it is not out of Love, but fear…” So, when God decides to create man and show Satan that a free will being will choose God over all else, God decides to do it right where Satan can see it.  Amen! I'm already out of time…so let's finish these verses and take it up there tomorrow… “In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…” “And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…” “And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…” “And God SAID, “Light BE and Light WAS. And God saw the Light, and that it was GOOD.” Quick close in summary… Nothing was happening UNTIL GOD SPOKE WORDS.  That is how powerful words are. And since WE are created in His image and Jesus has given us His authority – we can use Words to create, just like He did… Ok. Let's leave it there for today… Let's Pray!

The 16:9 PODCAST IS SPONSORED BY SCREENFEED – DIGITAL SIGNAGE CONTENT Screens in bars, restaurants and all kinds of venues have been part of the mix for decades, and there have been all kinds of different takes on what to put on those screens that not only entertains and occupies guests, but also has  tangible business impacts. Straight-up digital signage solutions give venue operators the ability to fully manage what appears on the screens, but then those operators have to do the work to keep the system running and content fresh. Boxes and software that squeeze a broadcast signal can allow operators to run in-house ads below and on the side of the screen from cable TV feeds, but the legal side of that can be more than a bit shaky. Widely available high-speed internet and over-the-top streaming technology advances have opened up a new way to keep screens fresh and interesting, and a well-funded Austin, Texas spinout company called Atmosphere TV is going hard at the opportunity. Launched in 2019, Atmosphere has more than 50 streaming content  channels that are in 14,000 venues and reach some 25 million sets of eyeballs monthly. There are curated channels full of cute pets and funny misadventures, but there's also a newsroom that produces carefully selected news that manages to straddle the increasingly polarized political divides of the U.S. The particularly interesting kicker is that the service is free to users, with Atmosphere even sending operators free, pre-staged Apple TV boxes that just need to be plugged in and connected to broadband. I had a great chat with Blake Sabatinelli, the company's Chief Operating Officer, about how things work and where Atmosphere is going. TRANSCRIPT Blake. Thank you for joining me. What is Atmosphere TV all about?  Blake Sabatinelli: Atmosphere at its core is a place-based television platform and we think at Atmosphere that we're here to help inform and inspire people who are watching our platform, and we do that through any one of our 54 channels that are on our platform, whether it's Atmosphere News, which we just launched or Chive TV, which is the the engine that built Atmosphere as a whole before we spun it out on its own. But we're everything from entertainment to information to digital signage and really just here to make sure that we're getting people to look up in the venues that they're sitting in, instead of staring down at their phone and engaging with the world around them.  So the simpleton explanation would be that this is something you would use in place of putting TVs in a venue and putting CNN or Fox or whatever on and just letting that run?  Blake Sabatinelli: A hundred percent. We look at our content in a whole different light that I think what you see in the traditional cable space, and if you go back to the genesis of our company, Leo and John, our founders were sitting in a bar, there was ESPN on mute, there was Judge Judy on mute and they were looking around and no one was really paying attention and they realized that no one was really programming television for out-of-home, and that audio is a huge consideration.  In both places, if you go to a sports bar here in the states, you'll see a football game that's usually the primary audio or a baseball game or something, but there's also 15 other TVs in the venue, and all of them are running captions that are really small, that you can't see from 30 feet away on content that's not engaging if you don't have the audio on, on content that honestly isn't engaging even if you have the audio on. And in some cases, especially if you're talking about the news, Fox News or CNN, MSNBC, that's angering half the audience there. So we're coming at television from a totally different perspective.  We programmed it for eyes and not ears, which is not a native thing for anyone coming from television. You have to do both and ensure that it's something that everyone can lean into and enjoy and be engaged with. You mentioned that you've launched a news product among the many channels you already have. When I look at Atmosphere TV, and I've been familiar with it for a while, it's primarily soft content, it's curated social media videos, and that sort of thing. News is a very different animal! Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, you're telling me. I spent 15 years in the news business before joining Atmosphere and ran a company called Newsy for seven years prior to this, and there's a whole different world from what traditionally is published on Atmosphere to what a news channel is. But if you really break it down, it's really not all that different. On the entertainment side of our business, it's engaging short form videos, programmed in such a way that you want to lean in and really watch, and with news, we're really trying to take the same approach. Keep people informed about what's going on around them. Tell them the things that they need to know, do it all in an audio off capacity, which is a challenge out the gate and also sprinkle in some things that inspire and entertain them along the way, because it's a pretty dark world out there and news can be a dark platform. So we feel like we can come at this a little bit differently. Get people to smile, get people to nod and understand what's happening and not feel bad after watching it at the same time.  Is it a function in certain respects of the political polarization that's out there, particularly in the United States, where you have auto dealer showrooms, where they may have one TV and you get arguments breaking out about the fact that it's on CNN or it's on Fox, and as you said, 50% of the people are unhappy? Blake Sabatinelli: I mean, look, I can tell you now that if you watch our network, there are no opinions. There's no commentary, there's only context and information, and that really does come to the point that you're making that the political environment here in the United States is challenging right now. There's no way to make everyone happy. So our view on the way to make this work is to strip out all the things that make people angry and just report facts and just really hammer home the headlines and straight news. There's plenty that happens in Washington on a daily basis that's factual and incredibly important. There's plenty that happens in Washington DC, if you watch Fox News, CNN, or MSNBC on a daily basis, that's filler, that's conjecture and opinion that people for the most part really don't care about.  So I would imagine with some of the other channels that you have, where it's cute pet videos or extreme sports or whatever it may be that, you've got content curators who are scanning YouTube and whatever for material.  Is it different for the new side where you have a quasi news room?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, we do have a newsroom. So we actually hired Michael Grimes, the former head of social for NBC News to come in and join us and lead our newsroom, and we have a team of producers that sit just out in front of my office and are producing news on a 24/7 basis at this point. So yeah, while it's not our normal curation process, there's a news room out there and it's exciting to see and I like the buzz. How do you gather this news? Do you get feeds from the Associated Press and so on, like everybody else?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, that's correct. So we actually partner with a number of down the middle, highly respectful of these organizations, like the Associated Press, AFP, Reuters, and others to ensure that we're aggregating and collecting the best news that's out there and packaging it in such a way that it can be enjoyed on our platform.  So on the other hand with the softer content, how does that work?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah. So we have a team of producers that work on each of our channels. Not all that different than what you mentioned that are out actively seeking out content on the most popular social platforms, whether it's TikTok or YouTube or Facebook and working with these content creators to license their content and get it on our platform to then produce it with a very specific formula that we generate for each channel and get it up on our platform when it's ready to go.  If you use material from YouTube or Facebook or TikTok or whatever it may be, are you talking to those platforms for the rights to that material or do you go right to the content creators?  Blake Sabatinelli: We work directly with the content creators and we work with them in such a capacity that it's a mutually beneficial relationship. Most of these content creators are really looking to extend their reach and ensure they're going to get as many eyeballs on them as a creator as possible to build up their businesses, and we ensure that all of our content creators get a significant amount of showcasing in each of the videos that we air there, so when people see something amazing happening on screen, they're able to look up and say, I want to go to Instagram and follow that guy. So we've built these relationships in such a way that we have an active ongoing discussion with the content creators and when something new pops up in their feed and they're sending it out, they're reaching out to us as well. I guess chasing down certain material from somebody who's in the business or wants to be in the business of creating content that generates income for them that way, they're probably pretty easy to chase down. But on the other hand, you have the serendipitous stuff where somebody took a video of some weird weather event or whatever, I suspect it is probably a lot harder to get them?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, that can be challenging, but we also work with the licenses agencies that those folks work with most predominantly. So whether it's your Stringers or Jukin or others, so wildly large, and when I say large, the vast majority of our content comes from the creators themselves. We also have to work with the licensing agencies as well to ensure that we're gathering all those amazing pieces and putting them in one place.  So technically if I am a restaurant operator, bar operator, and I want to use Atmosphere's one or two or many channels on it, how do I do that?  Blake Sabatinelli: Great question! You generally just give us a call. We have a box delivered to you. It's a self-install. We have everything set up for you. So you call us, we will send you a fully provisioned device. We have onboarding steps delivered with the box so you can plug in and get set up on the internet, and once you turn your TV and the box on, it's up and running.  Everything is managed by us from a cloud capacity. So our IT team and our engineering teams push updates and manage the devices remotely, and if you ever have any issues, you can call our customer service team. They're there 24/7 to make sure that any issue that crops up is able to be taken care of immediately.  So it's pretty much set it and forget it? Blake Sabatinelli: That's right, and that's why we love the platform so much, and that's why our operators that use the platform love it so much. It's robust, it's highly engaging and it's easy to use.  And this is an Apple TV bow? Blake Sabatinelli: It's a provisioned Apple TV box, that's correct.  If you had a smart TV, like a Samsung or an LG Smart TV that has apps and everything else, could you use that instead?  Blake Sabatinelli: So we actually do everything through our own device. We found that our device is far more robust, easier to keep up and running and just decided to go that direction.  Yeah, and the Apple TV boxes, they've got pretty good third-party device management and things like that. So you can remedy things, and as you said, push up new firmware and everything else.  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, a hundred percent. The entire Apple ecosystem is robust, and we've found a great deal of success in working with both third-party management platforms and on the Apple TV platform broadly.  I'm thinking five-six years ago, this would have been a lot harder to do. Over the top streaming capabilities have progressed massively in that time space, right? Blake Sabatinelli: A hundred percent. The proliferation of high-speed internet has been a key catalyst in the growth of the business. You couldn't necessarily deliver gigabytes upon gigabytes of information across a slow 128 kilobytes a second DSL line, that was challenging. And the additional infrastructure that's been built along the way to support services like Netflix and Amazon, HBO Max, and others has really benefited our business as well. There's a digital signage component, I guess you could call the whole thing related to digital signage as well, but there's the ability for the owner-operator of a venue that's using this to go in and add advertising, right? Blake Sabatinelli: That's right.  So we give our venue partners the opportunity to add a couple 30s spots every every couple ad breaks into the channel feeds itself. Everything that we hear back from our partners at this point is that it is a great tool for them to be able to advertise specials, upcoming events, you name it for their venue and it's just really helps complete that fortuitous circle of keeping butts in seats longer, bringing them back more frequently, spending more money, etc. How do they do that? Is there an app or a desktop application?  Blake Sabatinelli: Great question. We actually have a portal with a digital signage manager that allows you to either upload your own assets, or we have a tool that allows them to create their own assets on the fly within the ecosystem itself. So if you have an agency and you've been working with them, or you have a creative team and you work with them to create assets, that's great. But if you don't, you're at a small bar or a restaurant, or a dental office and you need to get something done. We have a tool in there to help you build this.  With templates and things like that? Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah, we have templates, both video and still, and a ton of options in there.  Do you work at all with third party digital signage CMS software platforms or is it that either you're going down this path or you go down that path. You can't really merge the two?  Blake Sabatinelli: So primarily we work within our own platform. So all of our tools are built custom for our device and custom for our platform as a whole.  If there is an opportunity for us down the road to work with third-party software operators, whether that's for queuing or for other signage options? A hundred percent, but right now we've been operating and developing all our own software.  Do you get beyond the simple component of throwing ads every three minutes or whatever it may be and enable a venue operator to do things like, ”Hey, we're hiring!” or things like that that get into messaging as opposed to advertising? Blake Sabatinelli: Whatever they want to run in those spots, it's up to them. We're not in the business of policing how businesses operate their own signage option. So if they're looking to post that they're hiring, which I know every restaurant in America is right now, then we would encourage them to use the tool to do that as well. It's a subscription, right?  Blake Sabatinelli: So our platform as a whole is actually free. If you want to use the digital signage option, it's $50 a month.  So you send them a free Apple TV box?  Blake Sabatinelli: That's right. We send people a free Apple TV box and we ask very few questions of them. Our goal is to get people on board and running and streaming and getting people enjoying the content as fast as possible, and while it sounds too good to be true, it's not.  We give you a free Apple TV box. We pay for that Apple TV box by providing advertising. So we're advertising a sport or business, it's a vast majority of our revenue stream, and we find it works for both us and for our partners.  Okay. So there's a programming wheel and there's interruptions in that programming wheel that are both for booked advertising, that your team or the Atmosphere team has sold or is through programmatic platforms of some kind, but if you want to do local on-premise venue specific advertising, that's an opportunity as well, and you pay $50 a month for that?  Blake Sabatinelli: You hit the nail on the head there, and we end up offsetting some of those advertising slots that we normally would sell on a national or local capacity for the venue operators themselves. What's your built-out footprint at this point?  Blake Sabatinelli: We're over 15,000 venues right now, reaching I want to say 48 million unique visits on a monthly basis at this point. Did some of that transfer over from Chive or is that starting from scratch a couple years ago? Blake Sabatinelli: So some of that definitely transferred over from Chive. Chive was an incredible catalyst and test case for us to be able to understand product market fit and the dynamics of the marketplace. We have doubled our footprint over the last year and have seen tremendous growth post COVID. Now if you look back at back in the Chive TV days, we were primarily focused on only bars and restaurants and bars and restaurants are still our bread and butter at this point, they make up 60% of our venue footprint but we've definitely diversified significantly and learned a lot post COVID too.  Now there's any number of Software companies and solutions companies that sell into hospitality, sell into restaurants and bars and all those kinds of venues, as well as clinic waiting rooms and so on. They would sell a software solution that would enable the operators to go in and do all of their on-premise messaging and everything else but they would then have to subscribe to a third party content service, like a ScreenFeed, or one of those kinds of companies to provide the other content for the wheel.  Is that something you sell against or are you finding people are saying, “You know what, I love the ScreenFeed material and everything else, but we just can't keep up with all this. We don't want to manage it. If we could just get something that just shows up, that would be better”?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah. So there's a couple of constituencies that we sell against.  Primarily for us as is against the pay television ecosystem. There's not a lot of great options that exist for waiting rooms or public spaces that exist in the pay TV ecosystem. Some of the contents are wonderful with the audio on, but when the audio is off, it's not, and there's also no signage options in there, which clearly is a challenge. There's also the folks that are endemic to the space, to your point, the operators that work with the waiting rooms, especially around point of care and we do hear a lot that people just really want to make sure that the perceived wait times are going down and they can provide signage options, and for us, making sure that our venue operators have higher net promoter scores that proceed wait times are lower in bars or in restaurants, that you're staying for longer is really the key. Beyond that, the additional messaging is a bonus.  I'm going to assume that you guys have done the work to try to develop and highlight some of those metrics, right? Blake Sabatinelli: That's a hundred percent correct. So we've worked with in-market to understand dwell time and other metrics within our restaurant venues, we work closely with our metrics partner Epicenter on how people are engaging and activating with our content, and then a number of case studies along the way to really drive down the funnel, the efficacy of the platform and everything.  So what does happen? Does it increase dwell times if I'm ordering a second round of drinks or another plate of nachos or whatever?  Blake Sabatinelli: Our last study showed that we had 16% longer dwell time in bars and restaurants and 18% higher return frequency amongst customers and a lot of our venue partners who shared back some of their net promoter scores have gone up based on our content being in place.  So really there's no argument against it. If they're going to have flat panel displays, whether they're TVs or commercial displays in their venues anyways, and if they get the Apple TV box free, then you know, I would imagine it's hard to say no? Blake Sabatinelli: Like I said, we've grown really fast the past 18 months post COVID and the business has been booming. So I agree with you. It's hard to say no.  The biggest challenge that we have, and it's really about getting people to understand that this thing that they didn't know existed in a segment that really doesn't have anyone else playing in it. It exists and it's going to be beneficial to their business. Once they understand how this fits into their restaurant experience or their waiting experience, it's an easy close.  So you mentioned how the growth happened in the past 18 months, I keep saying 18 months, it's probably like 20 months now. Blake Sabatinelli: It's been a long time. I've lost count at this point. I think everybody has, as I'm sitting in my home office saying that.  COVID was an interesting thing for our business. Look, I don't think anyone in the media space would say that things didn't go a little haywire in April of 2020 but it did also give us the opportunity to evaluate our business model, our distribution strategy, and to really think about how we could expand and pivot a little bit. So while bars and restaurants were closed, aftermarket auto and doctor's offices, dentists offices, and others still had people coming into them, especially outside of California and New York, so expanding our distribution strategy has allowed us to not only keep up and running through COVID, but to dramatically increase the velocity of our distribution as we've gone out of the initial wave of COVID and into the present day.  Is there a type of a vertical category type of venue that seems to adapt it more so than others? Blake Sabatinelli: I'll be honest with you. We've seen strong growth in that across a number of categories. So everything from traditional bars and restaurants to QSR, we've seen explosive growth in gyms, in aftermarket auto, in point of care. Moving now pretty aggressively into airports and other spaces. We've just seen strong, measured growth across every category and every segment that's been incredibly encouraging.  When you onboard new clients or new venue clients, do you do any work to audit the type of audience that they may have and make recommendations about the channels that suit them best? Because I'm really curious whether a venue puts in a channel that's about cute puppies or whatever, and the audience would be saying, “Why are you showing that?” Or “Why are you showing news? I don't want to see the news.”  Blake Sabatinelli: There's plenty of venues that Chive TV works really well in, but in veterinarian offices, Paws TV plays better and so we make that recommendation. The same goes for news in airports in the doctor's weightings rooms. So we're incredibly thoughtful about how we present our content and where we think it should play, and our customer service and account management teams work closely with our venue partners to ensure that they know new options are available and that options they may not know about that may suit their venue better are available as well. Do you try new content channel formats and try them out with test partners and sometimes just throw them out, cause that doesn't work?  Blake Sabatinelli: We wouldn't be a tech driven platform if we weren't doing a significant amount of AB testing. Our product team and content teams were constantly working within new partners to do tests and learn to better understand product market fit of a channel or a new format and to better understand how we can continue to improve the product. It's a constant process and it's just part of operating in the ecosystem that we do.  Have you learned things about length of material, like duration of material?  Blake Sabatinelli: We actually have and there's a reason that if you look at the content on our platform, it's formatted the way that it is. People want to quickly move from one thing to an X and I think that's partly a by-product of this new world that we live in where short form, highly addictive, highly engaging video is the norm. You're used to looking down and getting that dopamine rush. So fitting that format onto a big screen is important for us. And then just people are really looking for variety too. That's why we have custom playlist features that allow you to compile a number of different options into one because not everyone wants to see the same thing for a long period of time. So we try to keep the format moving, we try to keep the content moving. We try to keep it varied and engaged as much as we possibly can again, to reduce perceived wait times on one end or in some cases to ensure people are sticking around the same. I'm hoping I can get another round of people doing amazing things.  How do you deal with portrait material, stuff shot in portrait mode? Blake Sabatinelli: At this point pretty much everything is shot in a vertical format. So you get pretty used to working with curtains. We've done a good job of being able to cycle back and forth between the vertical and horizontal formats as effectively as possible, and I think people have gotten used to seeing video shot both vertically and horizontally. Ten years ago, I remember you would shoot a video on a cell phone while working in the news business, you would be screaming in the control room. Why didn't they turn their camera sideways? In this instance, everyone's used to this, this is the new normal and it's really not that big of a concern.  And I guess the advancements of camera sensor technology and smartphones has been good news for you guys as well. Like you say, 10 years ago, I remember I had a Blackberry about 10 years ago and that camera was dreadful.  Blake Sabatinelli: 320x240 resolution and if you watch that on my little MacBook that's sitting in front of me right now, I believe the kids would say it looks like it was shot on a potato.  Look, the advancements in camera technology have just really been a boon to businesses like ours. I have one of the crappier iPhones in my pocket and I think it's probably a higher resolution camera than the SLR that's sitting in my closet that I've never used. So it's been fantastic for us.  Yeah, that's exactly right. I've got a mirrorless camera, nice SLR, and I never use it because it's just so much easier to whip out my phone, take a shot, and it's got like a 16 megapixel sensor and it looks great!  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah. What a time to be alive that I don't have to carry a giant camera or a camera bag around with me anymore. So I'm not going to complain.  You recently announced, I believe that you are expanding Atmosphere TV into Canada, right?  Blake Sabatinelli: That's correct. We're actually moving aggressively there right now.  When I look at your installation map, it throws me off a little bit. It looks like you already have a lot of points of presence in Canada, or is that just the way the map looks? Blake Sabatinelli: So we do have some presence in Canada to start off with, but now we're making a concerted effort to actually come in and take as many shares as we possibly can in the marketplace. But early on we were testing, are we a hundred percent sure that the content is going to work just the same as it does in Canada? It does. Is our distribution and sales model gonna work exactly the same? It will. Is the ad sales model exactly the same? It is, and so at that point, we all sat down and made the decision to make a more concerted effort to move into Canada, to take more share and to really replicate the model that we have down here in the States. Yeah, that would be the easy one. The harder one would be going South.  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah. Look, our primary target out the gate is English speaking countries. We have Canada, Australia, New Zealand, there's plenty of others that'll be coming down the pipeline. But moving into second languages is definitely going to be a focus for us, especially as we start to understand what the economics look like in each market, how we can program in those markets in such a way that we do here in the United States and in Canada, and then we'll continue spreading in that direction.  How big is the company at this point?  Blake Sabatinelli: The headcount changes every single day. I think we're at 220 people. We've about tripled our head count since I joined in March, I think I was employee number 84.  So there's 110 plus people who you've not met yet because you're working out of your bunker?  Blake Sabatinelli: I go into the office four days a week and I am incredibly thankful that I'm able to go in and actually see people face to face and so we have a large contingency here in Austin, satellite offices now that are popping up in New York and LA, and Chicago is on the roadmap. While we're almost all here, there's a decent chunk of us that are external, and I've had the pleasure of meeting everyone in person. How much of that would be Editorial versus Sales versus IT or Ops, I guess you'd call it?  Blake Sabatinelli: Editorial', probably a quarter of our company. IT and Operations, probably another quarter, and then the rest is spread across Distribution and Ad Sales and GNA, and other. Has it been hard to manage all this largely virtual? Blake Sabatinelli: So we've been back in the office since March at this point. There has been a significant amount of growth with all of us virtual. I'm not going to tell you that there hasn't been a growing pain or two and that it's all easy, and this is a cakewalk, Dave, but our team's incredible, our HR team, our finance folks, recruiters, everyone that works on our team to find, identify and bring and onboard new employees, they're wonderful and so it hasn't been as bad as I'd think as other experiences I've heard across the industry.  My twenties and thirties were spent in newspaper newsrooms and I struggle to wrap my head around the idea that you would have a dispersed newsroom where you're only talking to each other by video meetings and Slack. Blake Sabatinelli: We did it in April of 2020. The entirety of our Newsy at home and we spun up live operations in people's living rooms and it was absolutely bananas, and that was as difficult as you would imagine, and was ripe with challenges, but that team got it done too and made it look easy. I think one thing that I've learned in this new COVID world is to truly expect the unexpected, and so long as you're comfortable with that, and so long as you know that something's going to blow up at some point in time and you're ready for it, then it's not that bad. So what can we expect from Atmosphere TV in the next year, are you going to be launching more products?  Blake Sabatinelli: Yeah. So I think you're going to see a pretty significant expansion in our content offering. We've had the opportunity over the last year to really understand product market fit, to do a significant amount of tests and learn, to gather the data that we need and really prepare ourselves to start running. I feel like we've been at a full sprint, but now it's time to move like Usain Bolt for the next couple of quarters. So a significant expansion in our content offering in the size and scale of our company and our distribution footprint. We have big plans ahead and I expect you'll be able to watch Atmosphere pretty much everywhere you go here soon.  Are you still hiring people?  Blake Sabatinelli: We are hiring like crazy and have plans to continue at a pace like we are now through the next two years.  Great. All right, Blake, thank you so much for spending some time with me. Blake Sabatinelli: It's my pleasure. Thanks for the time Dave.

According to the latest IPCC Assessment Report, we're currently on course for at least 3°C (5.4°F) of warming by 2100 even if all of the voluntary Paris Agreement emissions pledges are fulfilled. Clearly the world needs to do more to reduce emissions. But what if that's still not enough? Solar geoengineering – such as putting sulfate aerosols into the stratosphere to reduce the amount of the sun's heat from reaching the earth – could be one tool to slow warming temporarily. But it has become so politically fraught that even research into the subject is contentious.

According to the latest IPCC Assessment Report, we're currently on course for at least 3°C (5.4°F) of warming by 2100 even if all of the voluntary Paris Agreement emissions pledges are fulfilled. Clearly the world needs to do more to reduce emissions. But what if that's still not enough?

史铁生《我与地坛》· 永清

为你读英语美文

《我与地坛》 作者:史铁生它等待我出生,然后又等待我活到最狂妄的年龄上忽地残废了双腿。四百多年里,它剥蚀了古殿檐头浮夸的琉璃,淡褪了门壁上炫耀的朱红,坍圮了一段段高墙又散落了玉砌雕栏,祭坛四周的老柏树愈见苍幽,到处的野草荒藤也都茂盛得自在坦荡。It had waited for me to be born, and then it had waited for me to be suddenly crippled in both legs during my wildly ambitious youth. In those four hundred years, it had been denuded of the colored glazes on the eaves of its old temple, the glorious vermilion of its gates and walls had faded, the high walls had collapsed, pieces of jade inlaid into the pillars had loosened and scattered, yet old dark green cypress trees surrounding the altar had become more and more serene, and everywhere, weeds and vines flourished with abandon.这时候想必我是该来了。十五年前的一个下午,我摇着轮椅进入园中,它为一个失魂落魄的人把一切都准备好了。那时,太阳循着亘古不变的路途正越来越大,也越红。在满园弥漫的沉静光芒中,一个人更容易看到时间,并看见自己的身影。It was about the right time for me to come here. When the park was finally ready for me—a man at loose ends—I maneuvered my wheelchair into the park for the first time. The sun—on its ancient, unchanged path—was just growing bigger, and redder. In the still rays of light suffusing the park, it was easy for a person to see the time, and easy to see his own shadow.自从那个下午我无意中进了这园子,就再没长久地离开过它。我一下子就理解了它的意图。正如我在一篇小说中所说的:“在人口密聚的城市里,有这样一个宁静的去处,像是上帝的苦心安排。”Beginning with that afternoon when I happened to go to this park, I've never been away from it for long. I understood at once why it was there. As I said in one story, “In a densely populated city, it's as if God painstakingly arranged for a place as serene as this.”两条腿残废后的最初几年,我找不到工作,找不到去路,忽然间几乎什么都找不到了,我就摇了轮椅总是到它那儿去,仅为着那儿是可以逃避一个世界的另一个世界。The first few years after I was crippled, I couldn't find work: I had no future; all of a sudden, it was almost as though I couldn't find anything. And so I wheeled myself to the park almost every day: it was another world, one where I could escape this world.我在那篇小说中写道:“没处可去我便一天到晚耗在这园子里。跟上班下班一样,别人去上班我就摇了轮椅到这儿来。园子无人看管,上下班时间有些抄近路的人们从园中穿过,园子里活跃一阵,过后便沉寂下来。”I wrote in one story, “With no place to go, I used to spend the whole day in the park every day: other people went to work; I went to the park. It was an abandoned park. When it was time to go to work or time to go home, people took shortcuts through the park, and it became animated for a while. Afterwards, it was still.”“园墙在金晃晃的空气中斜切下一溜荫凉,我把轮椅开进去,把椅背放倒,坐着或是躺着,看书或者想事,撅一杈树枝左右拍打,驱赶那些和我一样不明白为什么要来这世上的小昆虫。”“In the dazzling golden sunlight, the park's wall provided shade: I wheeled myself over there, put the back of the wheelchair down, and—either sitting or lying down—I read or thought. I would break off a cypress twig and drive away the insects who didn't know any better than I did why they had been born in this world.”“蜂儿如一朵小雾稳稳地停在半空;蚂蚁摇头晃脑捋着触须,猛然间想透了什么,转身疾行而去;瓢虫爬得不耐烦了,累了祈祷一回便支开翅膀,忽悠一下升空了;树干上留着一只蝉蜕,寂寞如一间空屋;露水在草叶上滚动,聚集,压弯了草叶轰然坠地摔开万道金光。”“A bee like a tiny piece of mist hung on in midair; an ant was deep in thought, its head wagging and its antennae quivering, and then, all of a sudden, it must have come up with the right answer, for it turned back and scudded off; the ladybug climbed around wearily, stopped to pray for a while, and then, flapping its wings, suddenly soared to the sky; on the tree trunk there was one cicada, as lonely as an empty room; dew rolled around on the leaves of weeds, and then coalesced, weighing the leaves down until they broke into thousands of rays of golden light.”“满园子都是草木竞相生长弄出的响动,窸窸窣窣片刻不息。”这都是真实的记录,园子荒芜但并不衰败。“The whole park was astir with the sound of weeds, bushes, and trees growing, all shattering ceaselessly。” This was all true: the park was a wasteland, but far from going downhill.除去几座殿堂我无法进去,除去那座祭坛我不能上去而只能从各个角度张望它,地坛的每一棵树下我都去过,差不多它的每一米草地上都有过我的车轮印。无论是什么季节,什么天气,什么时间,我都在这园子里呆过。Aside from some buildings that I had no way to enter, aside from the altar that I had no way to reach but could only gaze at from every possible vantage point, I had been under every tree in the park, and my chair's wheel-prints were left on almost every meter of grass. I had spent time in this park in all seasons, all kinds of weather, and all times of the day.有时候呆一会儿就回家,有时候就呆到满地上都亮起月光。记不清都是在它的哪些角落里了,我一连几小时专心致志地想关于死的事,也以同样的耐心和方式想过我为什么要出生。Sometimes, I stayed only a short time and then went home; sometimes, I stayed until the entire ground was alight with moonbeams. I don't remember which corners of the park I was in then.这样想了好几年,最后事情终于弄明白了:一个人,出生了,这就不再是一个可以辩论的问题,而只是上帝交给他的一个事实;上帝在交给我们这件事实的时候,已经顺便保证了它的结果,所以死是一件不必急于求成的事,死是一个必然会降临的节日。For several years in a row, I was totally absorbed in thinking about death, and just as patiently, I pondered why I had to be born. This kind of thinking went on for quite a few years until I finally understood: a person's birth isn't a question for debate, but is the reality handed to him by God. When God hands us this reality, he has already incidentally assured its end, so death is something one needn't be anxious to bring about; death is a festival that is sure to befall you.这样想过之后我安心多了,眼前的一切不再那么可怕。比如你起早熬夜准备考试的时候,忽然想起有一个长长的假期在前面等待你,你会不会觉得轻松一点?并且庆幸并且感激这样的安排?After thinking this through, I felt greatly relieved: nothing would ever be so frightening again. Let me put it this way: just think, when you get up early and stay up late preparing for an exam, and suddenly it occurs to you that—just ahead—a long vacation is waiting for you, don't you feel a little better? And aren't you happy and grateful for this arrangement?剩下的就是怎样活的问题了,这却不是在某一个瞬间就能完全想透的、不是一次性能够解决的事,怕是活多久就要想它多久了,就像是伴你终生的魔鬼或恋人。All that's left is the question of how to live, but this is not something you can think through in an instant, not something that you can solve once and for all: you have to think about it your whole life, however long that is. It's a demon or a lover who is your lifelong companion.所以,十五年了,我还是总得到那古园里去,去它的老树下或荒草边或颓墙旁,去默坐,去呆想,去推开耳边的嘈杂理一理纷乱的思绪,去窥看自己的心魂。十五年中,这古园的形体被不能理解它的人肆意雕琢,幸好有些东西是任谁也不能改变它的。And so, for fifteen years, I had to go to this old park, go under the old trees or next to the neglected weeds or beside the dilapidated walls, sit in silence or think blankly, break through the feelings of chaotic disarray that were all around me, and peep at my soul. In fifteen years, people who didn't understand this old park had wantonly altered some of its design and structure. Fortunately, there were some things that no one could change about it.譬如祭坛石门中的落日,寂静的光辉平铺的一刻,地上的每一个坎坷都被映照得灿烂;譬如在园中最为落寞的时间,一群雨燕便出来高歌,把天地都叫喊得苍凉;譬如冬天雪地上孩子的脚印,总让人猜想他们是谁,曾在哪儿做过些什么、然后又都到哪儿去了;For example, when the setting sun moves to the spot inside the stone arch of the altar, its rays spread across the ground and each rough spot on the ground is resplendent in the sunshine; or at the loneliest time in the park, a flock of swallows comes out and sings, their desolate song filling the space between heaven and earth; or the footprints children make in the snow in the wintertime, always leading people to wonder who they are, what they are doing there, and where they are going;譬如那些苍黑的古柏,你忧郁的时候它们镇静地站在那儿,你欣喜的时候它们依然镇静地站在那儿,它们没日没夜地站在那儿,从你没有出生一直站到这个世界上又没了你的时候;For example, the dark old cypresses: when you're feeling melancholy, they are standing there sedately, and when you're feeling happy, they are still standing there sedately—they've stood there since before you were born and will go on standing there until you are no longer in this world;譬如暴雨骤临园中,激起一阵阵灼烈而清纯的草木和泥土的气味,让人想起无数个夏天的事件;譬如秋风忽至,再有一场早霜,落叶或飘摇歌舞或坦然安卧,满园中播散着熨帖而微苦的味道。Or a sudden rainstorm in the park touches off a pure green and muddy earth scent, giving rise to memories of countless summer occurrences; or the autumn wind suddenly arrives, and there is an early frost, and falling leaves or tottering singing and dancing or calm and quiet sleep: the park is pervaded with an atmosphere of tranquility and a little bitterness.味道是最说不清楚的,味道不能写只能闻,要你身临其境去闻才能明了。味道甚至是难于记忆的,只有你又闻到它你才能记起它的全部情感和意蕴。所以我常常要到那园子里去。Atmosphere is the most difficult thing to explain. My words can't convey this atmosphere; you have to be there and smell it for yourself. It's hard to remember, too: only when you smell it again will it bring back all the feelings connected with it. And so I must often go back to this park.

It's as if a master designer made the Earth not merely for life but for curious and intelligent beings.

I was absolutely privileged to have former NASA Astronaut and ex-NOAA Administrator, Kathy Sullivan on my podcast. Kathy can be called a geologist, an oceanographer, a scientist, an astronaut and an explorer. From being the first American woman to walk in space during her Shuttle missions to becoming the first woman to dive to the Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the world's deepest point, Kathy has had an incredible career. She was also the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and the Administrator of NOAA from 2014 to 2017. These days, among doing a number of other important things, Kathy hosts a podcast called Kathy Sullivan Explores, which I really recommend. In this episode, we talk about her astronaut journey, her experience diving to the world's deepest point, weather, the importance of providing intelligence over data and what action we can take with respect to climate change. I don't think a 40-minute episode is enough to get all her thoughts and advice, but I tried to cover different subjects. I hope you get inspired listening to Kathy as much as I did. ----- 01:54: Kathy's intro 03:41: Kathy's astronaut experience 09:20: The overview effect 15:45: Kathy's experience diving to the world's deepest point 20:30: The interconnectedness of the world 25:50 Kathy's journey at NOAA 28:02: Is weather a solved problem? 32:57: Providing "intelligence" over "data" 35:09: The importance of space for climate 36:37: What action can we take? 38:15: What's keeping Kathy busy these days 41:08: 1-line message for everyone -----

Discipline is what grounds meditation and study and connects them with our activities in the world  •  the Buddha said discipline should be like tuning a stringed instrument: if you wind a string too tightly you might break it, but if the string is too loose it will be off key  •  finding that right balance between too tight and too loose is something we work with all along as practitioners of the dharma  •  discipline as a practice is much more subtle and interesting than simply following some set of rules  •  in meditation practice, when we notice our mind is wandering and we bring it back, that's an example of discipline  •  Trungpa Rinpoche advised creating an atmosphere of discipline: setting a tone for the day, then paying attention to the results of our actions upon ourselves and upon those around us, slowly bending the energy towards benefit and less towards feeding further confusion  •  discipline is traditionally said to be that which cools the heat of neurosis  •  there can be a tug-of-war quality to discipline where we decide to do something, and then immediately a big wall of resistance arises  •  in some ways discipline is just “carrying on.”
