We are continuing India Week with a great friend and industry leader, Monte Dobson. Monte is the CEO and Lead Country Manager of ExxonMobil India and was appointed to the role in October 2021. Prior to his current adventure in India, Monte led technology development for unconventional resources in Exxon's upstream solutions business and was extensively involved in developing Exxon's Permian oil position. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to visit with him and hear about his experience in India and the work Exxon is doing to advance India's energy independence, energy growth, and energy transition. Monte first set the stage with some of his high-level impressions of India and key data points to get a snapshot of the country. As you may know, India is experiencing rapid growth in the economy (projected to be third largest economy by 2030) and has 1.4 billion in population with a median population age of 28 years. In our conversation, we touch on the talent ecosystem and recruiting for talent in Bengaluru (Bangalore), three business areas in the country that ExxonMobil is working to progress, taxation considerations with natural gas, whether India will increase its domestic production and its overall level of energy imports, the three pillars of security/reliability, affordability, and emissions, the ease of doing business in India, the keys to success, and more. We end with Monte's vision of energy in India in ten years and could have continued for much longer had it not been late in Bengaluru.  We had a quick upfront discussion:  Mike Bradley shared a brief market and commodity update and flagged the SCOTUS ruled in favor of West Virginia in the case of West Virginia vs. the EPA.  Colin Fenton shared macro insights as we wrap the first half of the year and looked at gas supply data for the US. The Veriten team had a great week learning more about India and we are excited to continue to expand our knowledge of the challenges and opportunities of energy and the environment in the developing world.

When a coal-fired power station near the US-Canada border closed, what happened to the local community, shorn of its jobs and the healthy tax revenues that it brought in? As the world shifts toward renewable energy we need to grasp the challenges that this throws up, finding new funding and sources of jobs and economic growth, while enjoying opportunities such as reduced pollution and lower carbon emissions. Learning from what's happened in previous case studies will help us to identify challenges, opportunities and solutions. This case study from upstate New York is the third in WRI's Just Transition In Action podcast series. In the previous two episodes we dealt with broad just transition issues and looked at a case study of finding new jobs for workers in Australia. In the next episode we'll be looking at the development of a vast solar farm in India.

Creative Thinking Programme Recruiting Mentors For 4,000 Irish Students

The design trailblazer behind a popular creative thinking programme being run in Irish schools says her team is this month about to embark on a gargantuan recruitment drive for mentors, seeking a whopping 800 professionals from across all sectors to help roll out The Big Idea to 4,000 students next year. Kim Mackenzie-Doyle from Carlow says creative thinking is a much-needed skill required by society and industry but has not been taught in Irish schools until now. The designer founded the multi-award-winning, free, creative-thinking programme for 15 to 16-year-olds in 2020 to bridge the gap between industry and education. “Creativity is a much-needed skill required by society and industry, yet it's not taught in our schools. And when I say creativity, I don't mean art. I mean using creative thinking to solve the biggest problems that face society,” says Kim. More than 2,000 students were supported by 400 Big Idea mentors this year. The mentor list reads as a who's-who of the innovation scene in Ireland with tech gurus, designers, creative directors, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, engineers, scientists, architects, educators, graphic designers, legal experts, marketing and brand specialists and more taking part. Mentors volunteered from innovative companies such as Stripe, Ikea, Bord Gáis Energy, UCC, MSD, Aerogen, Primark, Microsoft, Accenture and Deloitte to name a few. Kim says creativity is undervalued and misunderstood in Ireland. “When people think about creativity, they think about the arts. Being an artist is quite different to being creative. Artists make art of their choice from their inspiration. Creativity is everywhere and is fundamental to progress, in industry, society and education,” she says. She says that creativity thrives in collaborative settings which is why a diverse range of mentors steps up the learning for the students. “The more diversity the better. People with different experiences and backgrounds add so much richness to creative collaboration, proving that two or more heads are better than one.” Teaching the creative process Kim, who designed the world's best-selling computer mouse – the Logitech MX305 – while she was working at Design Partners, says the creative process is a step-by-step approach, which is why it can be taught. However, she fears that Ireland needs to put more time into creative education. “On a national scale, not investing in creativity will dampen Ireland's innovative spark. That's why we need programmes like The Big Idea so we can be proactive, focus on the issues that need solutions and teach and engage creative and critical thinking to come up with big ideas to solve national and global issues – now and in the future.” The winning Big Idea 2022 came from a student team at St Leo's College in Carlow with their app which uses QR codes to give recycling instructions with an integrated recycling reward scheme. “The other Big Ideas this year were incredible such as flatpack wind turbines, sustainable housing domes, an LGBTQ+ social media platform, a youth centre designed by teens for teens to promote positive mental health and a disease tracker app. While all of the projects and ideas were fantastic, we are also interested in the creative process that the students follow for the programme. How they arrived at their idea is just as important as the idea itself. But of course, we would love to see the students develop their ideas,” says Kim. Kim is also a member of the Design Skills Implementation Group as part of the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs. She is representing education in a multi-sector approach to address the national shortage of digital, product and strategic design professionals. The group recently published ‘Together for Design – Year in Review 2021-2022', a report which focuses on the design skills required by Irish enterprises from 2020 to 2025.

How Studies of Magic Mushrooms are Proving Consciousness

Big Ideas:   1.What Psilocybin is [00:27] – Psilocybin is the main psychedelic compound found in “magic mushrooms.” The talk of using this psychedelic at the end of life has been a hot topic and is being studied intensively. It is being looked at as having potentially effective medicinal/therapeutic properties in the treatment of fear, anxiety, and depression for those at the end of life. It is a naturally occurring compound found in specific species of mushrooms. It has been used for thousands of years all around the world as part of spiritual rituals and cultural ceremonies. In the 50's and 60's, Psilocybin started to be studied for its therapeutic properties in the use of treating a plethora of ailments and conditions. Everything from addiction, anxiety, depression, and other various forms of mental illness were treated in clinical studies with thousands of patients. In the 1970's this research was abruptly ended. It has recently started up again with a renewed focal point on studying the use of this compound in those at the end of life.   2.The “Trip Treatment” [3:20] – In 2015, an article in the New Yorker was titled “The Trip Treatment.” It was all about the use and studies of Psilocybin and the promising results it has shown in treating those who had extreme fear, anxiety, and depression in their end-of-life journeys. Not only did they have great results overcoming these particular issues, but the use of Psilocybin led to incredible breakthroughs and a sort of spiritual understanding/awakening amongst those treated with it. There is now a growing movement for using Psilocybin for this purpose in the End-of-Life space. There is much debate over this issue, but there are new studies currently being conducted at NYU, UCLA, and John Hopkin's University amongst other notable and well-renowned research institutions.   3.The Similarities Between the Spiritual Awakening at End of Life and Psilocybin Use [6:30] – Many of the things relating to the spiritual breakthroughs patients have in these various studies are remarkably similar to some of the things I have been sharing for years. As a former hospice and oncology nurse, I have worked at the bedside of over one thousand end of life patients over the last twenty years. My end of life patients say the same exact thing as those who have been treated with Psilocybin. I want to share that this experience is naturally occurring in people as they near their end of life. As their physical body is diminishing, their spiritual body is growing. There's a time in their journey where they have one foot in this world and one foot in the next. In my opinion, many people go back and forth before they fully leave this world. I say this because I have had so many patients who suddenly wake up with a bunch of new information and a renewed and profound perspective on life. They speak of all being connected to one unconditional loving energy and this parallels what has been documented in these Psilocybin studies.   4.You Don't Have to Wait Until the End of Life to Have Your Own Breakthrough [9:05] – The whole goal of life is the journey of evolving to find your spiritual self. To understand yourself and to be able to live authentically and true to who you really are. To overcome the obstacles and the suffering we deal with in our physical world. It is to get beyond your ego and to tap into what is in your heart and let it guide you. We all have two internal directional instruments we can choose to follow. One is our analytical mind that is shaped by our experiences, prejudices, and imprinting of other people's views. Following this directional path leads to us living a fear-based existence. By contrast, our heart guidance system will lead us to our unique truth. If we understood this human journey for what it really is and that we are all connected to one unconditional loving energy with no judgment – that life is all about learning and growing – we would have so much more compassion for one another and shift the entire world into a better place for everyone.   1. “Death is having a rebirth and it is bringing back the sacredness of end of life and the sacredness of life. We have got to understand what this journey is about and how we can make it the best for everybody in it.” – Suzanne B. O'Brien RN   2. “Take the time to create a loving space in your heart and ask yourself, ‘Where does my heart want me to be of service?' Find that internal place where you can love others, yourself, and everything and everyone on this incredible planet.” – Suzanne B.

We are called to disciple our children in the way they should go, but how? Today we're going to address what discipleship looks like in a tech world, and how we can all do it starting wherever we are today. Guiding verses today: Deuteronomy 6:4-9: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.[fn] 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Proverbs 22:6: “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” verses to encourage us as we love our kiddos as parents, journeying with them and pointing them to God's purpose for them (also known as discipline) Proverbs 3:11-12: “My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline or be weary of his reproof, or the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.” Hebrews 12:6: “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.” Jesus in talking about the vines John 15:2: “Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” Revelation 3:19: “Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.” Helpful Tech for Discipleship: awesome children's Bible: The Jesus Storybook Bible, by Sally Lloyd Jones audio book: The Jesus Storybook Bible devotional to do with kids: Indescribable, by Louie Giglio Bible content and lessons: The Bible Project great overviews like how to read the bible insights on books that can be tough to understand, like Psalms helpful guides for reading the New Testament If you use Veggie Tales, use their stuff from before 2012.

If you grow up in Portland, OR, running is practically a birthright, and for David Laney, it quickly became a way of life: he was already running 5 to 6 days a week by the time he turned 10. After a successful collegiate career followed by a brief stint racing on the roads, David burst onto the trail scene in the early 2010s and has gone on to build an impressive resume of race results on the strength of an unmatched dedication to training in the mountains. This past year, David left his longtime sponsor and joined a relatively new player to the trail space in Craft Sportswear. Soon after signing to run for Craft, he doubled down and took a full-time job helping them launch footwear in running shops across the US. Not too many athletes have that kind of relationship with their sponsors, so we talked to David about how it came about and what to expect out of Craft Footwear in the years to come. Along the way, we also get into his signature ice bath routine; running a self-supported 100-miler to raise money for Charity: Water; his breakout performance at UTMB in 2015; shoe surgery; and much more.

I love game-based learning – I don't really video games, and I definitely don't mean badges and leveling up. I mean learning content, deriving meaning, or assessing for understanding through playing or creating games. But can games actually have an impact on bigger changes in education? And if so, how? Jess and I discuss all of these questions, among other important issues. Then play along with Jess on The 5-Minute Game Show as she knocks it out of the park! In our chat, I mention a game-frame approach that I've been using and teaching to humanities teachers called Battle of Big Ideas. I designed this flexible and fun “philosophy meets fantasy football” type game to help students dig deeper into literature and history, finding connections and relevance as they create and build teams based on big ideas.

One could call The Kaiju Preservation Society (Tor Books, 2022) a pandemic novel because a) John Scalzi wrote it during the pandemic and b) the pandemic serendipitously leads the main character, Jamie, to a new job that sets the action in motion. But the book is not about the pandemic. It's about Kaiju, Godzilla-like monsters who live in an alternate Earth. This alternate Earth is rich in radioactive elements, and the Kaiju produce energy from their own internal biological reactors. This makes them a danger when, say, they end their lives with in nuclear explosion that thins the walls between Earths, but it also makes them an object of fascination for unscrupulous humans seeking new sources of cheap energy. “So much of the way plant life and animal life on Earth works is through sunlight, which is just another type of radiation,” Scalzi says. “Plants photosynthesize, animals eat plants, other animals eat the animals that eat the plants and so on and so forth. But sooner or later it all comes back to sunlight. The only places where you don't have that happen are in very specific places where, for example, there are sulfurous heat sources at the bottom of the ocean. And then things have evolved to take advantage of the energy source there. Well, in this alternate Earth, things like uranium and thorium in the crust are another possible energy source. It makes sense to me that life would evolve to take advantage either wholly or in part of that additional energy source. And then, of course, I just built out from there.” Scalzi has contributed in myriad ways to the art of science fiction through many novels, his past leadership as president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and the platform he provides other writers on The Big Idea, a feature that appears regularly on his website. His writing has earned numerous awards, including what was once upon a time known as the John W.
