So bin ich eben! Stefanie Stahls Psychologie-Podcast für alle "Normalgestörten"
Prokrastination - hinter dem sperrigen Wort steckt etwas, was vielen von uns bekannt vorkommt. Sei es die Abschlussarbeit, der Frühjahrsputz oder das Training im Fitnessstudio: Sich stattdessen mit dem Handy in der Hand nur kurz auf die Couch fallen zu lassen, fällt einem viel leichter. Doch die Deadline der Abgabe, der ansammelnde Staub auf den Regalen und das körperliche Bedürfnis nach Bewegung verschwinden dadurch nicht, sondern bauen immer mehr Druck auf, je länger man die Aufgaben vor sich herschiebt. Doch was sind die wahren Gründe hinter der 'Schieberitis'? Und was können wir tun, um unseren eigenen Hang zur Prokrastination zu bekämpfen? Steffi und Lukas geben praktische Beispiele an die Hand und berichten auch von eigenen Erfahrungen. +++ So bin ich eben hört ihr kostenfrei bei RTL+ Musik.

A straight man detests condoms with all his heart. Even the thought of putting on one of those rubbers makes him deflate like the ears on a 2-day-old balloon rabbit. Is this a fetish of some kind? It prevents him from having sex and it's bumming him out. There seems to be a fair bit of confusion about silicone sex toys and lube. Can silicone lube harm silicone sex toys? Or do they love each other so much? Dan hops on the phone with Searah Deysach from Chicago's Early to Bed sex toy store, to set the record straight. On the Magnum, things get heavy with a slew of questions concerning sexual abuse and trauma. Consider yourself trigger-warned. Dan brings on Dr. Leila Wood, a researcher and social worker at Austin's Center for Sexual Violence Prevention. They talk about how to support a friend in an abusive relationship, the difficulty partners can have in playing the “villain” in erotic contexts and how kinky sex can be profoundly healing. Finally, why all the hate for Mother's Day? Can't we all just get along?

Im Namen der Hose - Der Sexpodcast von PULS
Herzlich Willkommen bei unserem neuen Format! Alle zwei Wochen heißt es ab jetzt: Hose runter! In diesen Im Namen der Hose-Folgen beantworten wir eure Fragen, kurz und knackig. Diesmal geht es um die Frage: Warum haben wir das Bedürfnis, uns bei dem oder der Ex zu melden - obwohl die Beziehung schon länger vorbei ist? Manchmal sogar, wenn wir schon in einer neuen glücklichen Beziehung sind. Darüber haben wir mit der Psychologin Stefanie Winke gesprochen und sie hat uns erklärt, was der Grund dahinter ist und was wir machen können, wenn wir merken: Das tut mir nicht gut.
Einem Kind fällt es offenbar wirklich so schwer, sich an die kleinsten Regeln zu halten, dass es sich in Gefahr bringt, ein anderes findet einfach keinen Zugang zu anderen Kindern und nicht ins Spiel. Stattdessen fegt es wie ein Hurricane durchs Wohnzimmer und leert ohne ersichtliches Ziel alle Schränke aus. Diese Folge zeigt: nicht immer sagen Julia und Elke: "Passt schon, wird schon." In diesen beiden Fällen sagen beide: Es ist gut, sich externe Hilfe zu holen und zu schauen: Was hat das Kind und was braucht es? Sowieso kann dieser Podcast keine individuelle Beratung ersetzen und hier scheint sie umso mehr angebracht: einfach, weil es alles leichter macht, nicht weil das nicht machbar wäre, auch ein Kind mit besonderen Bedürfnissen und Bedarfen glücklich groß zu kriegen.ZIZAT: " Manchmal brauchen wir Eltern (und auch die Kinder) individuelle, professionelle Hilfe - das ist keine Schande, sondern ein Geschenk. So wie eine Brille, damit man besser sieht."OOODER Ihr hört mal in Julias zweiten tollen Podcast rein: MENO AN MICH. Frauen mitten im Leben - die die denken: betrifft mich ja noch nicht, sollten erst recht mal reinhören ;-)+++++++++++++++++Infos zur Folge:Anlaufstellen:Sozialpädiatrische Zentren, Frühförderstellen, Ergotherapeuten, Physiotherapeuten, ErziehungsberatungsstellenBitte informieren Sie sich vor Ort nach den angegebenen Schlagwörtern!+++++++++++++++++Lob, Tadel oder Themenvorschläge und Fragen zu den Themen Partnerschaft sowie Erziehung?

Booker Prize shortlister Mariana Enriquez, author of Things We Lost in the Fire and The Dangers of Smoking in Bed, joins Penn State professor Magalí Armillas-Tisyera and host Chris Holmes to talk about her most recent novel, Our Share of Night, her first to be translated into English. Our Share of Night follows a spiritual medium, Juan, who can commune with the dead and with the world of demons, and his son, Gaspar, as they go on a road trip to outrun a secretive occult society called The Order that hopes to use Juan and Gaspar in their unholy quest for immortality. Publishers Weekly called it “A masterpiece of literary horror.” In a wide-ranging conversation, Mariana reflects on being a horror writer in Argentina, a country that obsesses over its traumatic past. Indeed, Mariana's interest in writing fiction in the horror genre was prompted by hearing her first horror stories, the terrors of torture and disappearances under the Argentine Junta government. The three discuss Mariana's use of violence, especially when it involves children; the various afterlives of the translations of Mariana's award-winning fiction; and the arborescence of the novel form. Humor and dry wit cut through these weighty topics to make for a lively conversation with one of Latin America's most important contemporary writers. Mentions: Silvina Ocampo Mariana Enriquez, La Hermana Menor -The Things We Lost in the Fire -The Dirty Kid Ray Bradbury, The October Country José Donoso Juan Carlos Onetti Ernesto Sabato Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights Ingmar Bergman, The Hour of the Wolf A Nightmare on Elm Street (film) Titane (film) Pope John Paul II The Oulipo Movement Aleister Crowley Chris Holmes is Chair of Literatures in English and Associate Professor at Ithaca College. He writes criticism on contemporary global literatures. His book, Kazuo Ishiguro as World Literature, is under contract with Bloomsbury Publishing. He is the co-director of The New Voices Festival, a celebration of work in poetry, prose, and playwriting by up-and-coming young writers. Learn more about your ad choices.

Alsof je de douche aanzet: zo hard regende het in het Zuidoosten van Spanje. Vooral de regio's Murcia, Valencia en Andalusië werden getroffen. Het zorgde voor lege straten, dichte scholen, dorpen die onbereikbaar zijn door overstroomde wegen. En die zware buien komen na maanden zonder regen. Het water kunnen ze dus goed gebruiken, maar de grond zal het niet opnemen. Die is te droog en wordt de komende jaren alleen maar droger, legt klimaatwetenschapper van het KNMI Karin van de Wiel uit in podcast de Dag. Spanje is de hotspot van klimaatverandering: de Sahara schuift op richting het land. En dat gaat de Vlaming Benny Vanhaelewyn merken: hij runt een Bed & Breakfast in Murcia en vertelt hoe hij en de Spanjaarden leven met het nu al extreme weer. Reageren?

The more adulting we do, the more we realize how essential getting good quality sleep is to literally every aspect of our lives. From our physical health to our mood and mindset, sleep is the key to solving a whole lot of our problems. We're sick of burning the candle at both ends and tossing and turning each night, and we're not alone: the past few decades have seen a downward trend in the quality and quantity of sleep that people are getting. So… let's talk about sleep, baby! We're clearly not the experts on this (read sleep-deprived), so we called in Alanna McGinn. Alanna is the founder and lead sleep expert at Good Night Sleep Site, host of the ‘This Girl Loves Sleep' podcast and author of ‘This Baby Loves Sleep'. Alanna and her team of sleep consultants are certified through The Family Sleep Institute and have helped thousands of families around the world overcome their sleep challenges and establish healthy nighttime habits. Alanna is the resident sleep expert for publications like Forbes, Maclean's and Today's Parent, and the media sleep expert on Cityline, Breakfast Television, CBC Radio, and more. Join us as we chat about:The mental and physical impact of sleep deprivationCreating a routine that supports healthy sleepWhy your morning wakeup is the most important factor to good sleepHow to figure out the amount of sleep we really needTricks to optimize our sleep cycles and REM sleep Realtalk on magnesium and natural remedies How to catch up after an all-nighter and adjust to new timezones Can we keep napping???The power of the napuccino We hope this episode helps you create healthy sleep habits so you can get the quality sleep you deserve!For show notes and more adulting tips, visit: teachmehowtoadult.caSign up for our monthly adulting newsletter:teachmehowtoadult.ca/newsletter Follow us on the ‘gram:@teachmehowtoadultpodcast @yunggillianaire@cailynmichaanFollow us on TikTok: @teachmehowtoadultFollow Alanna:goodnightsleepsite.com@firstname.lastname@example.org

Real Estate News: Real Estate Investing Podcast
In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending May 20th, 2023... what the Fed Chief is saying about interest rates and potential rate cuts, how the FHFA is responding to a controversy over new rules for home loan fees, and why mall owners have become interested in pickleball. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review. Economic News We begin with economic news from this past week, and the Fed chief's response to predictions about what the central bank plans to do next. Jerome Powell spoke out at a conference at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and said that Fed officials have made “no” decision yet on their next move. Many economists are expecting a pause in rate hikes, but the Fed is determined to bring inflation back down to the 2% level, no matter what. A decision would be made after the Federal Open Market Committee evaluates “all” the most recent data. (1) Powell may have also dashed a few hopes for rate cuts later this year. He says: “The data has continued to support the FOMC's view that bringing inflation down will take “some time” and that rate cuts simply are not part of the Fed's current forecast. But he also says that interest rates are currently high enough to slow economic growth, and hopefully tamp down inflation without further credit tightening. Meantime, the U.S. leading economic index, or LEI, shows a decline in April, for the 13th month in a row. The declines have pointed toward a potential recession, but so far, that hasn't happened. The index was down .6% last month with eight of the ten economic indicators showing a decline. (2) Initial jobless claims were down last week, thanks to an effort in Massachusetts to reduce fraudulent claims. They fell from 264,000 the previous week to 242,000 last week. Overall, they have been slowly rising since January. The number of continuing claims was also down by about 8,000 with about 1.8 million people collecting benefits. (3) New home construction was higher in April, thanks to an outsized demand among consumers, despite high interest rates. The government says they rose 2.2% for the month with more activity in the Midwest and the West. That's for both multi-family construction, which was up 5.2%, and single-family, which was up 1.6%. Building permits were down, however, by 1.5%. (4) The home builders confidence index also reflected a positive outlook among builders. The National Association of Home Builders say the index was up five points to a central balance point of 50 in May. Anything above 50 is positive, and below 50, negative. The reading for May is the first time it's been out of negative territory in almost a year. (5) The latest report for existing home sales is for February, and according to the National Association of Realtors, it surged 14.5% as interest rates experienced a temporary dip. It was the biggest monthly increase since July of 2020 when sales skyrocketed 22.4%. NAR says that single-family sales are currently at their highest level since the association started tracking them in 1999. (6) Mortgage Rates Mortgage rates are still moving sideways. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up just 4 basis points, to 6.39%. The 15-year was unchanged at 5.75%. (7) In other news making headlines... FHFA Rescinds New DTI Fee Structure The FHFA is rethinking its controversial new up-front fee structure for single-family home loans which placed more importance on a borrower's debt-to-income ratio than it did on credit score. The government finance agency has now rescinded the new fee structure for Fannie and Freddie loans, and is asking for input on the goals and policy priorities that the FHFA should pursue in regards to an upgrade of the pricing framework. (8) When the FHFA announced the previously upgraded pricing structure, there was an outcry from real estate organizations, including the Mortgage Bankers Association, the National Association of Realtors, and others. It kinda blew up in the media, because it appeared to raise the fees for people with higher credit scores while lowering fees for low income borrowers, and gave the appearance of an unfair fee subsidy. The FHFA denies that the fee structure was based on the idea of a subsidy. But it is now accepting feedback from the public on how to adjust the fee structure to better reflect loan risk in order to protect Fannie and Freddie against those risks, and without unnecessary expense for borrowers, especially those struggling with affordability issues. Mall Owners Filling Empty Stores with Pickleball Courts! Mall owners have a new strategy to fill vacant stores and attract more people. They are turning to the fast-growing sport of pickleball, and replacing shuttered stores like Bed, Bath, and Beyond with pickleball courts! (9) The combination satisfies a need on both sides as consumers gravitate toward locations that offer fun, social experiences and not just a place to shop. Malls have already been incorporating things like theaters, arcades, and amusement parks into their shopping locations. So now, they are adding pickleball, and other experience-based activities like skydiving and virtual golf. Pickleball is currently the nation's fastest growing sport. As reported by CNN and the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, it's up 159% over three years to 8.9 million players in 2022. That's it for this episode of the Real Estate News for Investors.

Our banter for the episode includes wearing curlers in public and Convincing Esther to move to the West Coast when getting back to the states. Our question of the episode our listener asks about pivoting to a new career in Wedding and Event planning. Somehow this lead to talking about trying to remember the plot of "While You Were Sleeping" the "erotic thriller" with Sandra Bullock. We then discovered that we both mis-read and therefore misunderstoof the plot for "One Last Stop" by Casey McQuinston. The deck Holly pitches to Esther in this episode to add to her collection is the Midnight Magic Tarot. (Which Esther will purchase after the big move...)

Nestled in the foothills of the Shawangunk Mountains is the small town of Napanoch, New York. Within its quiet streets it holds a treasure for both the weary traveler and the paranormal enthusiast – the Haunted Shanley Hotel. The historic Bed & Breakfast has boasted several famous guests as well as a few infamous ones that used to patronage the Gentleman's Club and Bordello. A few of those guests have never left and still linger in the corridors waiting to greet newcomers and welcome back the returning guests.In 2005, Salvatore Nicosia bought the Shanley unaware of the spirits residing within its desolate walls. It did not take long for the spirits to make themselves known to Sal as they saw his efforts as a labor of love befitting of the noble history of the hotel. From 2007 until his death in July of 2016, Sal poured his heart into the building bringing it back to life and giving both guests and the spirits a second home.

The 16:9 PODCAST IS SPONSORED BY SCREENFEED – DIGITAL SIGNAGE CONTENT AVI-SPL is one of the largest pro AV integrators on the planet, but for the longest time, if I was asked if I knew anyone at that company specifically on the digital signage file, I'd say "Nope." As far as I knew, and the same for a lot of people involved in digital signage, AVI-SPL was much more focused on traditional pro AV work like unified communications and control rooms. While AVI-SPL delivered some digital signage projects, it wasn't a real focus. But that started to change a few years ago when the Tampa-based company spun up a new business unit called the Experience Technology Group, or XTG. Now it has some 30 people working on projects driven by the impact of visuals, and directly involving other architects, designers and creative shops. Now, that's 30 people in a company that has 3,700 other staff, but the group works with some 300 customer-facing sales people, and gets pulled in to opportunities and projects when clients start expressing interests or needs that are about more than just function, like whiteboards and conferencing systems. I had a great, very thoughtful talk with Mark Coxon, an industry veteran who joined the company about a year ago and is one of XTG's business development directors. We get into both the science and emotional sides of experiential projects, and how these kinds of projects work when they're guided by ideas and desired outcomes, and not just the Wow Factor of big screens. Subscribe from wherever you pick up new podcasts. TRANSCRIPT Mark, what is your role at AVI-SPL? Mark Coxon: I am a business development director in our XTG division, which is our Experience Technology Group, so what I do is work with our regional account managers as well as our partner ecosystem to identify opportunities to build amazing experiences. So your regional people would come across an opportunity, let's say, it's a corporate workplace that says, “We want to put a big ass LED display in our lobby. We don't know what to do or what to put on or anything else. What do we do?” And your regional person might have a kind of deer-in-the-headlights sort of reaction and call you or somebody on your team and say, okay, I need help here. Mark Coxon: Yeah. So a lot of our opportunities do arise within the regions themselves, right? Because AVI-SPL is a huge corporation. We have, I think, 300+ sellers out in the marketplace, across the world, talking to clients, managing accounts where they might do a lot more of the typical AV that you see out in the space: conference rooms and auditoriums, et cetera, and they'll come across customers saying, “Oh, I think we want to add a wow factor to this lobby” or “We're thinking about building an experience center to show off some of the new innovation that we came out with this year.” And so they'll engage our group, which is an overlay to the whole company, and bring us in, and we can really start to give, I guess, some form to that process and make sure they get what they want at the end of it. So you have a BizDev role, but it sounds like there's a fair amount of sales, engineering, and front-end consulting involved in it. Mark Coxon: Yeah, it's funny. AVI-SPL isn't really known in the market for experiential work, but we've done a lot of it. We've done a lot of it in pockets over the years for these customers, but it was never really organized under a division, and so that's why XTG exists. We've organized this portfolio of work in this division and assigned it to a team of people. We have about 30 people on our team now that overlay the country, and that team consists of people like me, business development directors, and we come from different backgrounds, some come from fabrication, some come from the consulting world, some like me come from all over the place within the industry from an integration perspective, and then we also have technologists on the team whose job is really exactly what you said to be those people who are thinking about the art of the possible. “All right, this customer's asked for this outcome. They have these people coming to their building. They want them to feel this. They want this actionable insight out of the space.” And they're the ones who actually come up with the ideas on what kind of technology could we use to execute this and if we were to pull this off, what would it take for us to do that? And then they start to come up with rough sketches of what the technology would be to execute on that outcome. Yeah, it's interesting. Through the years, I've been asked who do you know over at AVI-SPL and I'll say nobody from the context of digital signage, and the company's been known as a very large company, and it's very active. But doing more, if this is the right term, traditional AV work in the corporate workplace, that sort of thing, and as you said, pockets of activity in digital signage, but nothing organized. So was it recognized within the company that we need to aggregate this and put ourselves forward as being directly in this as opposed to people discovering that, oh, you do that too? Mark Coxon: Correct. XTG's definitely a targeted branding effort at consolidating this work and this expertise we have in things like executive briefing centers, museums, welcome centers, visitors centers, hall of fame experiences, et cetera, that we've done over the years for enterprise, higher-ed, and really creating some emphasis around that type of work that we do, for sure. Is there some cross-pollination happening when you do that? What I mean is, if you do some sort of immersive, experiential environment for a corporate workplace. Do they then two years later say, oh, by the way, we need new video conferencing capabilities or new meeting room signs, that sort of thing. Do you do that? Also, vice versa where you're already in there doing collaboration work, and they say, we want to do something in our lobby with Wow Factory. Can you do that? Mark Coxon: Yeah, obviously, we see both of those happen. Places where we're brought in maybe to do some specialty work, and of course, the other work at that point seems like more low-hanging fruit because it's work that we excel at already and have a huge portfolio of as far as auditoriums, meeting spaces, et cetera, and then, yeah, like you said, vice versa. We're coming in, and we're doing a lot of work, and you walk through this amazing lobby where people are going to come in their first experience before they come there to meet. So let's say somebody's bringing a customer into their building, and they're going to pitch a multimillion dollar sale with this customer that they have. How are they defining what that experience is gonna be within the building and just asking that question sometimes, who's doing this space? This looks like a customer-facing, marketing-driven space, and a lot of times they don't know that we do that work, and yeah, we stumble upon it that way as well. Do you guys go into prospective customers or existing customers pitching the idea of experiential spaces, or are you really operating off of their interest and initiative when they're saying we're interested in this? I suspect it would be hard to pitch somebody saying, “You should have a big-ass LED video wall in your lobby.” Mark Coxon: Yeah. I call that technology in search of an application, and that's definitely not what we do. There's a great quote by Cedric Price, who was a mid-century architect, that says, “Technology is the answer, but what's the question?” And that's really what my job is within the team, and the business development team's job is (we have a few business development managers), but our job is really what are you trying to accomplish in this space? What business outcomes are you trying to achieve when you're looking at building this space? We're in this weird mode, right? Where a lot of companies are re-evaluating what it means to have an office in general, what it means to have physical space, whether that be retail, we just saw Bed, Bath & Beyond looking at closing up and citing online competition as one of the reasons, so what does it mean to have place-based retail today? And if we are going to build a space, what should it be? And really starting at that level. So I try to start with that level with people all the time, even in the enterprise. The question isn't what do we do with the lease that we have or this space that we have? That's part, but that's the bridge. The real question is, if I had nothing, what would I build? And that's really the end goal of what you should be moving towards, and so many times we really start breaking down the problem of: what are the impacts that you hope to make by having a physical office or a physical retail location? And then how do we move backward from that into how does that now affect what we design into space, including the technology that will go into there? It's really reversing that. If we go in and just start telling people how cool it is to have an LED wall in their lobby, we're selling from the wrong perspective. But if somebody says, you know what, when people come in here, they come in here, and they sit, and they go into their phone. So they're waiting for a meeting. They come and sit in our lobby. They start looking at their phone, and suddenly they're stuck in their email. They're thinking about the seven things they have to do when they get back to the office, and they're already moving past our meeting. We want to create something that actually creates some anticipation, some foreshadowing that tilts them into the anticipation of the meeting they're about to have and not pull them out of our space and back into their workday. How do we accomplish that? And those types of conversations are much, much more fun to have and that could result at the end in having a 400-inch video while in the lobby, or it could result in maybe taking physical objects that the company's made if they're an aerospace company taking some of the innovations they have like rocket nozzles and things, and putting them on a shelf and letting people pick them up and play with them. And as they do, content launches, ambiently, around the room as they interface with these objects or whatever that happens to be. But really starting with who is here, why are they here? What are they interested in, and how do we engage them more? So that when they leave, they remember being here, and they actually take the actions we want them to take. So it's a much different approach than screens first, right? Yeah. As you might expect, I get bombarded with emails and pitches and everything else every day talking about different projects and capabilities of companies, and I see the words experience and immersive overused and abused quite a bit, and I'm curious how you define immersive and how experience is defined because I get a sense that there's this idea that experiential and immersive means that, you have to have a video wall that's got gesture recognition and you're going to wave your arms in front of it, and all these things are going to happen, or they're synchronized lighting, or God knows what. But from my point of view, there are times when an experience is just something that tells you if you're confused about which way to go, things like that, something that just makes the space better. Mark Coxon: A hundred percent. So it's funny that you mentioned that because although I'm on an experience team, I'm a big fan of the calm movement. How are we decreasing the technology we use for mundane tasks or throughout the day to create these analog, tactile, calm moments. I agree that the best definition of experience I've heard, and one I tried to adhere to was by Brian Solis. He used to be at Salesforce, I think he's now at Service Now, but he's written a lot of books on the experience economy. And he said, an experience is an emotional reaction to a moment in time, and as you said, that doesn't have to be an overwhelming jaw-dropping experience. It could be a relief like you said, that now I know where to go, or it could be a silent pause that allows you to reflect. I think there are a lot of ways that you can create an experience for a company. For me, immersive just means that it's drawing the person in. It doesn't have to be all-encompassing. Are there ways to do that? Yeah. I've given, and I'm going to give a course this year at Infocom on creating the new connection center. I've given some talks before on utilizing biology to give a deeper connection to your message. So things like engaging peripheral vision work because more of your brain turns on when your fight or flight response is activated when your peripheral vision is being activated. And so are there ways that we can use, potentially waves of light to focus people inward on a screen or on a position in a room. Are there ways to draw people through space to a place where we want them to dwell? How do we create experiences where we don't, I guess, create congestion, right? Like putting a screen in the middle of a hallway, it could be a good idea as long as you're not encouraging people to stand there for 15 minutes, as long as the dwell time there is 15-20 seconds, et cetera. So I think experience is also just how people interact with the space themselves, and immersion is a combination of all of those things. So engaging more senses always creates more memory, but that doesn't have to be an active participation either. I think the things that are often overlooked in experience are opportunities to create, if it's a movement of air, if it's gentle waves, if it's mechanical movement in a ceiling, if it's an ambient soundscape that fills the space instead of white noise, all of these things can lend to experience, but they're nothing that somebody stops and focuses on. They're things that happen in the background that enhance what's going on, without the person experiencing it really focusing on it, if that makes sense. Yeah, I'm listening to that, and I'm wondering how the people on the other side of the table are responding to that. I suspect some of them are leaning forward and very interested, and other ones are going, that sounds expensive! Mark Coxon: You do get that. You can definitely get that, and I think that's why the co-design process is so important and not coming in with an idea of what you want to sell. Like earlier, you talked about me coming in and telling somebody why this experience is going to be important for them. Again, that's me pushing something upstream that I've got an idea about. I always say my best tool in a meeting is a blank piece of paper. Because if I sit down and really listen to what people do in this space, what they're trying to accomplish, all of those things, I'll pick up little notes. I had a customer the other day who, the architect, had put together a mood board of what this space wanted to feel and look like. They built a lot of these common spaces that they're talking about in architecture, We and Us spaces is what they're calling them where they're building these cafes with a lot of biophilia and wood and stone, and all of these things, and they're like we want to do sound masking in here, and you're like, okay, that's great. So obviously, you want to keep the sound from moving back and forth, but what you've really created here is almost an urban park or a community park type feel in this space so instead of just flooding this with white noise or paint noise, why not create a nature scape or something like that'll also keep the noise transfer down but really reinforce this idea that you're outside in this natural environment as opposed to the hush of a quiet office or the hush of a pink noise or white noise air chiller or something that a lot of times you put in a office space where maybe you're trying to focus on deep work and not on connection, right? So it's just really listening to those things. When you start to identify those, when people start to, I guess self align with certain ideas as you're walking through what the different pieces are, they're more invested in that. Then when you come into that space where the cost comes, they really then weigh that against the impact as opposed to comparing it to what four speakers playing white noise would cost in the space. Is it like that book about a village in terms of these kinds of projects where it's super important to have the architect involved, the engineers involved, all the different players who collaborate on a finished project as opposed to just the AV team coming in and executing this part of it? Mark Coxon: A thousand percent. So many times, when we are brought in, what we end up doing and what I do with clients when they ask for an experience like this is one of the first things we want to do is almost a gap in overlaps kind of analysis with them. There is an ecosystem of partners that is necessary to create an experience. You're going to have somebody that's creating custom content. You may have two or three companies creating custom content. You may have to have a company specializing in video and live-action, live actors, et cetera, maybe somebody specializing in creating interactive user interfaces for touchscreens and all of those things. So you have these content creators. You do typically have somebody as an architect in this space that's obviously defining what the space looks like. Many times you have an experiential design firm doing the story, right? What's the strategy, what's the story? How are we walking people through this space? That's working with the marketing team in the company. Then you have custom fabricators building all this set work that the audiovisual goes into to create the look and feel that everybody has drawn down on the paper. So it does take a village, and many times that's part of what we do, is we educate what it is that players are involved in a successful experience. Who are the stakeholders that you have involved with now? Do we need to get more stakeholders involved? Many times it might come through IT because they see it as a technology buying exercise and you really find out that marketing and the C-suite and human resources need to be involved because this is a system that's meant to reconnect the employees of the company to the mission of what they're doing every single day in space. And now all of a sudden that becomes a much higher strategy-level conversation on how it's executed, and so it does take a village and it takes a great ecosystem of partners. I know that word's overused too. I've used it twice. But it takes this great array of partners, which is one of our core strengths is that we have a partnership manager that works specifically on making sure that we have a broad array of partners that we can introduce into these projects with our customers to make sure that none of these gaps are left untouched and that the experience we deliver at the end is not just a piece of technology installed on a wall because the technology itself, you don't get the value out of it when it's installed in the building, you extract the value out of the system. The ROI comes from the use of the system over time to drive the outcomes that you were looking for and thinking of this as a construction project where I delivered the 400-inch LED screen, so we're done, and the customer got what they paid for, they haven't actually extracted any value out of that piece of equipment yet. It's a depreciating asset until they play something on it that gets them the result that they want. So we really try to focus on that instead of just our one part, and our, as I said earlier, we have our team. Our team, from a business development perspective, we walk through those things. Our technologists design the technology, but we also, when we take on a project, we have a program manager. And they're involved from the beginning, they listen to the intent, and just like in the programming phase of architecture, when you talk about what is the intent of the space and what are the ways that we're going to actually make some design decisions to facilitate that, the program manager really carries that spirit of the job and make sure that those partner handoffs, et cetera, are all going well and that everybody's involved in delivering the final result and so we built a process by which we deliver that, and we believe in it, so yeah, it does take a village for sure. What is the breadth of services? I'm thinking of one company much smaller than AVI-SPL, but they can do the full experience including metal fabrication and creative design, all that. So they can pretty much go from inception to delivery out of the same shop as opposed to using partners, but for a large company with a whole bunch of partners in play, how much do you want to own and how much do you want to cross-pollinate and work together on things? Mark Coxon: We've doubled down on partnership when it comes to that. Our core strength is delivering technology. That's why our business was built, and that's what we do best, so we focus on the design and implementation of those technology systems, and for the other pieces, we partner. So you know, w don't build a lot of content. We do have a division called Video Link that does some content for video production for meetings, et cetera. But are we going to create computer animations for how our power plant works? No. We're going to bring in a partner that knows how to do that every day to do that. Are we going to define for the company what their story should be based on their seven customer personas? No, we're going to work with their marketing department, and if they need some help really coming up with a storyline, we're going to bring in one of our branding and creative strategy partners to help with that because that's what their core skill set is. So we try to focus on what our operational excellence is, and that is delivering technology systems. But from the standpoint of the way that we approach the sales group, we're not engaging in a process that's designed to sell a particular technology. So it's the difference between focusing on what we're really good at and letting the cart dry the horse. I love the Maslow quote, “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” We try not to approach this, well, we need to sell 600 extra square meters of LED this quarter so this customer will get a video wall. That's not the way that we approach this. We don't approach this from a technology-centric lens, but we know where we play well and what we deliver value in the market with, and that's the technology portion. I wrote recently about a company that was, maybe not pivoting, but evolving into doing AV as a service, with the argument being that a lot of end-user customers would rather just have the whole project done as an operating line item as opposed to all the upfront costs of capital, and they don't want to worry about recurring support and all that. They'd just rather pay a number and let somebody else do it. Is that something that comes up and that you offer? Mark Coxon: Yeah, it comes up all the time. I think customers are always looking for ways to understand how much of this you want to own from a content update perspective, from how you manage refreshes, from even how you buy a system, as you said. Is it an operational cost, or is it a capital expenditure? Is it a construction project, or is it an ongoing cost month over month? One place that we see this very specifically right now is we're doing some virtual production and XR opportunities for clients, especially in the corporate space where they're wanting to elevate their all-hands meetings or their product launches or any of those types of things. They're often already buying those services in an operational cost format where. They're going out and renting a studio, or they're hiring a production company to come in and do these meetings for them. So they don't want to take on a capital expenditure. They want that to continue to be an operational cost. So yeah, through things like creating a plan for leasing equipment by having a breadth of services onsite, like we have onsite managed services where we can embed an AVI-SPL employee in one of our businesses to run a center per se, or to run a virtual production studio for the customer so that they just come in, the stakeholders come in, they talk about the product they want to talk about, and somebody's running all the front house, back house doing the streaming out to the other participants, et cetera. Yeah, we offer all of that, and that's one of the great things about working with somebody like us is because we do have such a large footprint, we do have such a presence, we have 4,000 employees across the world, and we have onsite managed services available. We have the ability to buy things on the customer's behalf and lease them, et cetera. That's one of the great advantages of someone with a big footprint like us is we have the ability to do those things. What are the reference projects that you bring up? So you're sitting in a meeting, and they say, “What have you guys done? Impress me!” What do you come back with? Mark Coxon: Yeah. There are always a few that we show. The Museum of the Future in Dubai is an amazing project that we did, and people were like, you guys did that project? I'm like, yeah, we did that project and delivered it through our Dubai office, which is an amazing office. That team is, hands down, an awesome team. But we show projects like that because that's a space where people pretty much ride an elevator, like a space capsule, up into a space station and then come back to Earth in a future state, and the museum architecturally is beautiful, it's an oval with a hole in the middle of it. You even wonder how it suspends itself, as well as just all the different things that are in there. There's a touch interface where a half globe, a half spear actually swells up out of a flat table, and you can use it to articulate the earth. Who's ever seen an interface like that before? So obviously, there were some great creative partners involved in the content and in that fabrication. But that's obviously a showcase project that we talk about a lot, and then we have visitor centers and executive briefing centers. A lot of our executive briefing centers are very impressive, Honeywell and Charlotte is a beautiful center with everything from transparent LED to kiosks to volumetric displays with physical artifacts to a full four-wall cave immersion room with a touch interface in the middle to navigate through 3D environments. And so we show a lot of those pieces. We try to show projects that have, I guess, a variety of execution styles because not everything needs to be a touchscreen. It's to show someone that you could have 3D printed objects on a table, and as you pick up those objects, the video changes, and as you articulate that object, you can actually affect different parts of the video to launch. Those kinds of things are really cool and just show people that it doesn't just have to be a touch screen on a wall. We're not looking to put a big black rectangle on the finish you spent six months working on with the architect. We're going to make sure that's integrated into the space in the proper way. Yeah, I'm a big fan of subtlety and just little things like present sensors that cost a few bucks to incorporate into a design. But you walk within a certain range, and it changes what's on a screen, and “Oh, how'd that happen?” It's great, but it's not fancy, you're not issuing a press release about it. Mark Coxon: Yeah. We've been working on some projects where they're talking about using real-time location services as people walk through the building. So they get badged in, or they get a card, and that card has a profile that maybe they've entered in, and as they walk through the space, the experience is personalized slightly to them, based on their profile or using things like data generated art. Humans are great at pattern recognition, and so if you're putting audio/visual in a space that people work in every day, or people go into the office every day with these screens are in the background, you don't want them to be counting down 15 seconds to read and then 32 seconds until the screen goes blue with white text and then: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, cue the video of the kid running through the park. That almost becomes like water torture at some point, right? It's just the constant dripping of this repetitive content that goes on in the background. So how do we use things like occupancy sensors, and time of day weather outside, all of which create effects on these screens that are more ambient in times that they're not being actively used for customer communication or employee communication? A lot of those things are really cool. So what you said, that subtlety, and really thinking of just the different moments. These are canvases that we can use for multiple things. Sometimes they need to be quiet and soothing for people to do their work. Other times they need to be loud and inspiring to get somebody's attention and be able to design something that does that and know who to partner with on the backend from a hardware perspective for something like a content management system that can be on a schedule or can use sensor-based inputs to trigger different modes is really important. Are you sensing or seeing any kind of a shift in the marketplace in terms of rising interest in a particular thing? I know you mentioned experience centers, but those have been around for a while, that's an area where I get a sense because of the pandemic and everything, they're elevating in importance because you don't have as many people in the offices. Mark Coxon: Yeah, I think experience centers are becoming more and more prominent. Companies are seeing if they can bring their customers in and create a memorable, relevant experience around their value story, that pays dividends for them. I think we're seeing more and more interest, as I said, in virtual and extended reality, virtual production, and extended reality stages for elevating corporate communications. Suppose every single one of your communications goes out in 16 squares on a VTC call. How do you punctuate those meetings so that the important ones are elevated and look different, feel different, and actually engage people differently? We're seeing more and more of that. I will say, honestly, the big push is this: The challenge of physical space in a world that becomes more and more online, we have to get away from the idea of just utility because utility is going to be provided more conveniently, virtually. I can easily join a meeting from my kitchen table. I can easily buy a pair of pants on Amazon. So if we're just looking for the utility of work or the utility of shopping or whatever that place is built to do, if we're focusing on utility, we're always going to lose to the online experience because it's more convenient and the utility is the same. So we really have to focus on the personal experience. Gensler did an experience index on public space a few years back, pre-pandemic, but people are in multiple modes when they go shopping, right? People are in the task-based mode of finding something to buy, but they're also in a mode of exploration. They're in a mode of connection. They're in a mode of aspiration. Who do I want to be? What do I want to be? I want to be inspired. They're looking for cultural connection. There are all these other motivations at play, and it's the same when people come to interact in an office, when they join their team, when they go to a movie theater versus watching something on Netflix. There's a reason the movie theaters haven't died. It feels different to watch a movie in a movie theater, not just because of the scale of the screen or the audio, but because it feels different being in a room, having a shared experience with other people, hearing their reaction to something, hearing when they go silent, when they laugh and when they cheer. Those are things that we can really build an experience around, and I always say technology has advanced to a space where technology is usually not the limiting factor, so technology's no longer a huge challenge, space isn't a huge challenge, to design a space or to be able to build a space that facilitates these things. So really, now we are in the challenge of getting somebody back to the office, getting somebody in a mall, it is a human-centric problem. That's a human-centric exercise, and if we don't start with experience design that addresses the human motivation of why they would go somewhere, and we just address the utility of how big a store need to be and how big a screen need to be for somebody to read the text? We're never going to solve a human-based problem on why space is relevant, and so I think companies and customers are starting to see this more and more if we can start talking about: what is the human experience, and then how do we use space and technology to facilitate that? It's just a different way to solve the problem. We have to flip the model in its head. We can't start with a square building, add technology, and then hope people come and use it in the way that we designed it. That's not experience design. All right, Mark, thank you very much—very interesting chat. Mark Coxon: Hey, thank you, Dave. I appreciate it.
New season, new talent. What can I say? We gotta keep the train rolling and we gotta keep picking up passengers and sharing the load. Fucking fat load, you know what I'm saying. Fucking HUGE load for Lotsa Pasta, right? RIGHT. So who better to spread that load than a married couple. First married couple on the show? That's cute.

Beyond Bariatric Surgery: Everything You Need to Move On
When was the last time you ate so much that you felt stuffed? Was it a big Thanksgiving meal or when you celebrated your best friend's birthday with that ginormous cake and ice cream? Maybe after a bad day, you almost finished a half gallon of ice cream along with some cookies while watching TV. How did you feel afterward? Frustrated that you ate so much you made your stomach hurt or did you play the guilt and shame game? Overeating every once in a while is normal. However, in compulsive eating, food is often the way of coping with negative emotions. Then you feel guilty, ashamed or depressed. These are different feelings than when you just ate too much at Thanksgiving. Bariatric psychologist Dr. Connie joins me to talk about compulsive eating and how to deal with those feelings of guilt and shame.Visit Procarenow.com for all of your vitamin, calcium and protein needs.

Here are the questions Dr. Connie and I discuss on today's episode:Let's start by explaining the difference between compulsive eating and binge eating disorder also called BED.Today, our focus is on compulsive eating. I often see compulsive eating start as a result of diet restriction where foods are seen as either good or bad. When you don't allow yourself certain foods, at some point it's easy to say, forget it and eat way too much of that restricted food. Other times, it starts as a mindless habit like munching in front of TV instead of eating a meal of protein food and other macros on a regular schedule. From your perspective how does someone typically start compulsive eating? Are there underlying emotional issues or a negative body image? What stands in the way of asking for treatment for either compulsive overeating?How common is compulsive eating in the bariatric community?Before someone is cleared for surgery, do they need to be treated for compulsive eating first? Let's get specific. How do you overcome guilt and shame? What are your best strategies?What haven't you said that we need to know?

Bu video 03/01/2016 tarihinde yayınlanan “İman Zaafı ve İslam'ın Gurbeti” isimli bamtelinden alınmıştır. Tamamı burada: https://www.herkul.org/bamteli/bamtel... *İnsanlarda dinî duygu ve düşünce, öncelikle telkinle başlar, sonra da taklitle benimsenir ve yaşanmaya devam eder. Belki hepimizin mebde-i hayatına inilse, çocukluk dönemine gidilse bir ilmihal bilgisi mahiyetinde Allah'a, meleklere, kitaplara, peygamberlere, ahiret gününe ve kadere imanın yanında kelime-i şehâdet getirmek, namaz, oruç, zekât ve hac gibi dinin temel rükünlerinin bizlere telkin edildiği, bizim de onları taklitle alıp zamanla benimsediğimiz görülür. Usûlüddin uleması (kelâmcılar), bu şekilde taklitle kazanılan inancın bile insanı kurtaracağını söylemiş ve bunu ıstılahî ifadesiyle, “Taklidî iman makbuldür.” şeklinde ifade etmişlerdir. Fakat her ne kadar böyle denmiş olsa da, inkâr ve dalâlet fırtınaları karşısında imanın ayakta kalabilmesi için taklitle benimsenen bu mülâhazaların, daha sonra altlarının doldurularak sağlam bir blokaja oturtulması ve içte hazmedilip sindirilmesi gerekir. Zira taklit, nazarînin başlangıç noktası olarak mebdede bir vazife eda etse de, onunla elde edilenlerin kalıcı hâle gelmesi tahkikle mümkündür. *Belki günümüzdeki bu iman zaafının, Allah'tan kopukluğun ve Efendimiz'den (sallallâhu aleyhi ve sellem) fersah fersah uzak bulunuşun arkasında bu taklit vardır. Bu açıdan da evvela imanın amelle, nazarî bilginin aksiyonla takviye edilmesi lazımdır. Sonra ikinci derecede, yaptığı amelleri şuurluca yapmak gelir. Bunun üzerinde ısrarla durmak lazımdır. Şayet iman, marifetle taçlandırılmazsa, insan yol yorgunluğundan kurtulamaz; sürekli imanı heceleyip dursa da onun semerelerine ulaşamaz. *Evet, iman, “vicdan kültürü” şeklinde de ifade edebileceğimiz marifet ile taçlandırılmalıdır. Ondan sonra bir aşk ve Allah'la münasebet dönemi gelir. Biliyorsanız, O'nu çok seversiniz. Bilen sever; bilmeyen sevemez. İyi biliyorsanız, içinizde O'na mülâkî olma iştiyakına kadar meseleyi götürebilirsiniz. “Bütün benliğinle ahirete yönel ve ahirete, ahiret kadar değer ver! Ehh bu arada dünyadan nasibini de unutma!..” *Dünyaya dünyalığı ahirete de ebedîliği ölçüsünde teveccüh etmek lazımdır. Nitekim Cenâb-ı Hak şöyle buyuruyor: وَابْتَغِ فِيمَا آتَاكَ اللهُ الدَّارَ اْلآخِرَةَ وَلاَ تَنْسَ نَصِيبَكَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا “Allah'ın sana verdiği her şeyde âhiret yurdunu ara; ehh bu arada dünyadan da nasîbini unutma!” (Kasas, 28/77) Bu âyet-i kerimede Kur'ân, “Ahiret yurdunu ara” derken “ibtiğâ” fiilini kullanıyor ki bu, “Bütün benliğinle ahirete yönel ve ahirete, ahiret kadar değer ver!” demektir. Bundan da anlaşıldığı üzere, ahiret için bütün imkânlar seferber edilmeli, dünya için de “nasibi unutmama” esasına bağlı kalınmalıdır. *İnsanlar çok kitap okuyabilirler, çok kitap yazabilirler, belki çok güzel şeyler de konuşabilirler. Fakat imanlarını marifetle taçlandırmamışlarsa, marifetlerine muhabbet sorgucu takmamışlarsa, muhabbetlerini aşk u iştiyaka çevirememişlerse, bu mevzuda bir “Hel min mezîd – Daha yok mu?” kahramanı olarak yaşamamışlarsa, bir de dünyada bata çıka yürüdükleri halde mümin olduklarını iddia ediyorlarsa, yalan söylüyorlar demektir. Kur'an-ı Kerim, kuru bilgi, faydasız malumat ve amele dönüşmeyen nazariyat insanlarını “tıpkı ciltlerle kitap taşıyan bir merkebe” benzetir. (Cuma, 65/5) Ziya Paşa'nın
