Riding a bicycle
Welcome mountain bikers! Thanks for tuning into The Inside Line podcast. Today I'm stoked to have Dustin Zeis on the show. Dustin is the reason the Boise Bike Park keeps its flow and runs so well throughout riding season. As Head of Maintenance, he's a Boise city employee blending his passion for riding bikes with building trails. In this episode, we discuss how he turned his love of getting two wheels off the ground into a full-time job. If you have a public bike park or trails system in your area, make sure you thank the people that make it run. It's such a great time to be a mountain biker with so many places to ride.

www.commsolutionsmn.com- Recently, House Democrats (and nine Republicans) passed Biden's infrastructure bill. It is rumored to have voter support, but no one really knows what's in it. For Instance, within three years time, all new cars will have DWI breathalyzer equipment (guilty before proven innocent). Minnesota is getting its own piece of sweet government money to dole out. $4.8 billion is earmarked for roads and bridges. $818 million is reserved for mass transit, despite ridership being down over COVID. $68 million has been set aside for electric vehicle charging stations. They are so heavily subsidizing the purchase of electric vehicles, and still few people want them due to the short battery life, time to charge, and the cost to upgrade homes to charge them. $100 million has been declared for rural broadband. Of course, with all of the money comes strings. There will be all sorts of green stipulations to meet in order to get access to any of the funds. We also take a look at Governor Walz's plans with the huge rise in COVID-19 cases. If one thing is for sure, no one is in control, and no plan seems to do anything substantial.

Are you having a hard time staying consistent with exercise? This week, massage therapist and yoga instructor Sparrow Heatley shares how she learned new skills, faced her fears, and showed up for herself while training for her first sprint triathlon. Exercise is usually our last priority when we are busy and overwhelmed. But that's when we need it the most! Exercise reduces stress and increases energy, resulting in a great ripple effect. After a workout you choose to eat healthier, sleep better at night, and experience an uplifted mood. Sometimes exercising to lose a certain amount of weight or to look a certain way is not juicy enough to keep us motivated for long periods of time. In this episode, we uncover how setting a big goal with specific benchmark dates is the key to staying motivated and consistent - even when we are at our busiest or feeling our lousiest. We invite you to say YES to the challenge you've had in mind for yourself! Episode Timestamps: 2:43 How did Sparrow's first Triathlon change her? 3:54 Calming your anxiety in high pressure races 5:02 Overcoming the feelings of “I can't do this” 8:17 The unique environment a triathlon community provides 11:25 A victory over a triathlon can empower you throughout other aspects of your life 13:05 Learning the importance of self-care during training 17:39 How has triathlon training affected the rest of Sparrow's life ----------------- Learn More: https://www.curtco.com/lifedonebetter Have questions, feedback, or suggestions for a topic for Jill?

It Doesn't Get Any Greener Than This I moved all of my properties and the sanctuary completely off the grid! Big Cat Rescue is committed to protecting exotic cats from captivity and in the wild and some may think that we put cats ahead of people, but that's not true. Protecting habitat where cats live free is crucial to saving the planet for all of us because our forests are our planet's lungs. We have tried to reduce our impact on the globe by installing two huge solar arrays, thanks to the help of some wonderful donors. These solar panels helped us reduce our dependency on dirty fuels and are a focal point on tours to get people thinking about what they can do to walk more softly on the earth. This week Arcadia Power made it possible for Big Cat Rescue to completely switch to clean energy! It took about 5 minutes, and will only cost us about $20.00 a month over our typical electric bill for the entire sanctuary. (For a regular house, it's more like $7.50 a month over your regular bill) There was nothing to install, no hassle, no red tape; just a quick call and a simple contract that can be freely terminated at any time (if we want to go back to using the dirty stuff). Arcadia Power is the first nationwide Clean Energy utility option. By partnering with wind and solar projects, Arcadia Power provides homes and businesses with 100% pollution-free energy via local utilities. Members support their values through their monthly electricity bills, decreasing demand for fossil fuels and helping to grow American jobs. Arcadia Power partners with sustainability-minded companies and organizations to combat climate change and secure a better future for our planet. To see if it is available to you visit www.arcadiapower.com/bigcatrescue and just type in your zip code to check. How Big Cat Rescue Went Completely Green. It works like this: Once power reaches the grid, the electricity is indistinguishable – just a bunch of charged particles zipping around – and no one can specifically direct an electron from a wind turbine to your home. What matters is how those electrons are produced, and that's something you can influence. When you sign up for clean energy with Arcadia Power, you'll ensure that for every kWh of electricity you use, a kWh is produced and put on the grid by a pollution-free renewable source. You get the same reliability from your local utility, and one consolidated monthly statement. It's that simple. We are proud to announce that Big Cat Rescue is now running on 100% clean energy! We wanted to share with you our support of an environmentally friendly lifestyle, and encourage you to do the same. We are offering a $36.00 Free Pass to anyone that signs up for clean energy at your home or business via our partner Arcadia Power! It won't change your current utility company and is easier and more affordable than you think. Click here to read more and sign up. Every year on average, your home will use electricity generated by burning 4,000 pounds of coal. This releases nearly 10,000 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere and furthers the devastating effects of climate change. This equates to the same as driving an extra 11,000 miles a year, or cutting down 190 trees. Arcadia power provides an option for purchasing clean and renewable energy sources that will bring your CO2 emissions down to zero. We are in the business of protecting wild cats and their habitats, so it is important to us that we have partnerships with businesses that feel the same way. Big Cat Rescue is proud to be a Clean Energy Partner! Running our business on clean energy seems like a small price to pay for doing the right thing today and investing in the environment of tomorrow. The sign up takes just 5 minutes, and when you do, you'll get a Big Cat Rescue Free Pass right in your welcome packet. We are running on 100% Clean Energy – join us! It's a win-win for everyone! ArcadiaPower.com/bigcatrescue Learn More About Going Green Big Cat Rescue is now running on 100% Clean Energy and is supporting the production and demand of renewable energy sources. We are partnering with Arcadia Power and so should you! Sign up to run your home on clean energy and get a $36.00 Free Pass to Big Cat Rescue. How it works: Arcadia Power purchases clean energy equal to your usage, but your local utility continues to deliver it to your home. You still receive just one power bill every month, and the same reliability that you're used to, but your footprint is reduced to zero. In just one year, the average American home's electricity use generates over 10,000 pounds of carbon pollution per year. With Arcadia Power, you can reduce your home's carbon footprint to 0, and go green in under 5 minutes. It's little-known to most people that not only does fossil-fuel electricity generation add greenhouse gases to our atmosphere, but also uses 0.49 gallons of water for every kilowatt hour produced, which for the average household is around 5000 gallons of water wasted per year. Choosing clean energy is a natural option for socially responsible people, just like buying local, organic or fair trade. The average household uses just over 10,000 kWh of electricity per year, reducing your home's impact to zero through clean energy with Arcadia Power would be equivalent of: Biking over 11,000 miles instead of driving, or for the average American, 580 days of not driving to work. Planting 190 trees. 34 years of not turning on your coffee maker. 55 years of not using your hair dryer. Arcadia Power is a first-of-its-kind company giving homeowners access to the same energy markets where Apple, Whole Foods, and Google buy their clean energy. Through Arcadia Power, you support renewable energy facilities across the country – from commercial wind farms to school solar projects – and ensure they're putting clean energy on the grid. You support job creation and the clean economy. Clean energy for the average Arcadia Power customer costs about 25 cents per day for the average customer. No contract or commitment, and no need to install anything. You don't need to own your home: Arcadia Power works with rentals, apartments, condos & small businesses too. If you pay an electricity bill, you can use it for good. We are running on 100% Clean Energy – join us! It's a win-win for everyone! ArcadiaPower.com/bigcatrescue For those who will inevitably scream, "What about the birds?!?" please consider the fact that failing to embrace clean energy sources means we destroy the entire planet for us AND the birds. Here are some numbers based on studies (coal is much harder on birds than wind): http://climatecrocks.com/2013/05/20/why-coal-and-nuclear-plants-kill-far-more-birds-than-wind-power/ http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2014/08/25/3475348/bird-death-comparison-chart/ http://www.eesi.org/articles/view/how-harmful-is-renewable-energy-to-birds Hi, I'm Carole Baskin and I've been writing my story since I was able to write, but when the media goes to share it, they only choose the parts that fit their idea of what will generate views. If I'm going to share my story, it should be the whole story. The titles are the dates things happened. If you have any interest in who I really am please start at the beginning of this playlist: http://savethecats.org/ I know there will be people who take things out of context and try to use them to validate their own misconception, but you have access to the whole story. My hope is that others will recognize themselves in my words and have the strength to do what is right for themselves and our shared planet.

Our health is very much shaped by the structure of the spaces around us, what we often refer to as our built environment. The concept of the built environment was developed for fields of urban planning and architecture, and includes any aspects of our spaces that influence human activity, from density of homes and buildings, access to transportation options and community spaces, and the streets and sidewalks, or the lack thereof. The built environment is also highly relevant to public health. The structure of spaces around us will impact whether or not we elect to commute by automobile, public transit, or walking or riding a bicycle; it can impact selection of the foods we eat, proximity to health services, and, thereby, has greater impacts on equity, by driving housing prices and access to resources. Hosts Bryan James and Ghassan Hamra chat with Steve Mooney, assistant professor at University of Washington – Seattle about how our built environment shapes our transportation and pedestrian decisions.
Qudsiya Naqui has experienced losing sight, transitioning from reading to listening to audio, learning about the White Cane and advocating all along the way. Qudsiya is aa Lawyer and reflects back about her journey, her advocates, her way of choosing a college and how Tandem Biking and Running has opened up communities where she is thriving. Qudsiya has a lot to say about her experience transitioning into Blindness and the experiences Qudsiya shares are lessons we can all take from. Qudsiya produces a podcast called, “Down to the Struts” , and here is the description from the web site, DownToTheStruts.com Qudsiya Naqui is a lawyer and activist living in Washington DC. She identifies as a blind, South Asian woman, and is dedicated to making spaces and systems more inclusive of disabled people through public education, storytelling, and amplifying the voices of disabled people. Here is a snippet from Qudsiya's article in Vox: The best $34.32 I ever spent: My white cane As a blind person, it was a conscious investment in my own independence. …As I settled into my hotel room that night, I thought about the object that made this whole trip possible: my white cane. Wielding the cane in the airport, at the restaurant, and in the hotel made me feel powerful and in control, but I recalled a time when that was not the case. I remembered when pulling out the white cane filled me with shame. It was the symbol of my failure to be sighted.

With the November general election quickly approaching, the city's next mayor already has plenty on the to-do list, and that includes addressing the rise in traffic fatalities. Advocates say this summer was the deadliest in terms of traffic crashes in the five boroughs, despite Mayor de Blasio's Vision Zero initiative. Gersh Kuntzman, the editor-in-chief of StreetsBlog, joined Errol to talk about what the next mayor should be prioritizing to make the city's streets safer for everyone. He also discussed the increase in bike riding, the debate over electric scooters and the push for more speed cameras.

Chris Benchetler is a professional skier, artist, director, climber, designer, father, and husband, from Mammoth California. Chris grew up ski racing until finding his path outside of times and scorecards through his love for freeride skiing and filmmaking. From there, Chris built up and out, embracing his passions in and outside of skiing while molding them together to create his own, authentic identity. In our discussion, we talked a lot about how Chris has found himself within an ever-changing outdoor industry and world, but also how he has navigated his newer role of being a father, and the superlative moments he has witnessed throughout his endeavors around the planet. Thanks for coming on Chris, and I'm stoked to share this one with you guys!

Episode 294 of The Outdoor Biz Podcast with Jack Wolfskin US General Manager Diana Seung. We talk about how Diana got into the Outdoor Biz, how a sociocultural anthropology major gets into retail, merchandising, and eCommerce, and plenty more. Facebook Twitter Instagram The Outdoor Biz Podcast Please give us a rating and review HERE Show Notes Diana Seung Jack Wolfskin Callaway Show Notes How were you introduced to the outdoors? A very unexpected call from a recruiter. So I had a recruiter call me and say, I have this amazing opportunity with backcountry.com. And I misheard her as like bat country like a bat. I was like, what's Backcountry? I've never even heard of this company. She's oh, they're in Utah. I'm like, oh, no way in hell. I was living in New York City at the time. And I'm like, there's no way I'm going to Utah of all places, I'm a city girl, lived in New York City, San Francisco, like through and through. She's why don't you just talk to them? Just have a conversation more informal. Yeah, just learn about them. I'm like, I'll be, open-minded, I'll speak to them. So I have a call with them. And at that point, we realized it's backcountry. Not bat country, backcountry was a new term for me too. That's how foreign the outdoor world was. So finally put two and two together and had a conversation. Crazy enough, I actually had a personal trip planned to go out to park city. A girlfriend of mine had just moved out here and I was coming out to visit her. So I'd mentioned to them, it's so funny that I'm getting this call and I'm speaking to you all cause park, city's never been on my radar. And my girlfriend just moved out there. I'm headed out there in three weeks to visit her. And they're like when you're in town, why don't you just swing in, check out the offices, get to know us. We'll tell you a little bit more about the opportunity. I said sure, why not that quickly transpired into being an all-day long, six-person interview back to back with a presentation. And then before I knew it, I was flying out here again several weeks later for another interview and got the offer and I thought, gosh, do I really want to move out to Utah and do something totally different in the outdoor industry? At that point, I'd spent seven years in Children's Wear prior to that I was in fashion and I thought, heck, why not? Let's try something different. This could be a really cool experience. And so I packed my bag and moved out here and I thought to myself if I hate it I can move back. But I might like it and five years later I'm still here. How does a sociocultural anthropology major get into retail, merchandising, and e-commerce? So college for me was about getting exposure to things that I probably never have the opportunity to learn again. So I took that opportunity just to take courses that were interesting. I was like, let me just have some fun here. So I majored in socio-cultural anthropology, which is definitely a mouthful. It's the study of cultures and more indigenous cultures and communities around the world. And then from there, I also did a minor in Africana studies cause Cornell, which is where I went had an amazing Africana studies program and center. Then I did a concentration in Asian American studies. So for me, it was like, let me learn about people and cultures and ethnicities and human behavior. And that was interesting. And I thought to myself if I don't do it in college, I probably won't get the opportunity to learn it elsewhere. So I did just that and always had the intent of going probably somewhere in the retail route and grew up with that. My father was a small business owner, he had his own small retail shops, jewelry business for a long time. So growing up I would hop in the van with him up to New York and the jewelry, wholesale district. So learned it very grassroots from him. How did you get connected with Jack Wolfskin? I left Backcountry and at that point, I was searching for a new role, and crazy enough, I was on a family vacation and an old colleague, Russ Hopcus he's the president of prAna had texted me. He said, Hey, look I just got connected to the CEO of Callaway golf. They just acquired Jack Wolfson and they're looking for talent and I gave him your name. I told him you're on the market. And he sends me this text and I kid you not within 24 hours Chip Brewer, the CEO of Callaway is calling me. He says Hey, I got your name from Russ. Do you have time to connect? And I'm like, sure. So we have an hour-long conversation and we talk about what he's trying to do. Build out a team for Jack Wolfskin north America. Within two weeks I'm flying out there and then a week later I've got a job offer and I'm like, whoa, what did I just sign up for? In your two years here what have been the biggest challenges? So when we came on board, it wasn't like tools were handed to us and it was just plug and play. Apparel as a business is newer for Callaway. And so we were implementing an ERP system. We had to launch our own website. And those building blocks take time and a lot of energy. So we knew that was always going to be a challenge, but that was the fun challenge. That's what we wanted to all do. And that's what we signed up for. But then to layer COVID on top of that, it's whoa, now we're going to be pushing a boulder up the hill to start. But now we're pushing up five boulders up the hill and COVID was definitely unforeseen by all of us, total curveball. I went out and had a whole strategy and plan of what we were going to do. And then when COVID hit, it was like, whoa, screeching, halt. Let's readjust. Do you feel like your team has gotten even closer? Because you've all had to deal with that? This team is phenomenal. And they all have their unique personalities. They all gel together play off of each other really well. And so it's very complimentary and very colonial. And I think that's the only reason why we were able to survive COVID right. And get through the pandemic because they all had such a great attitude and just a willingness to just conquer this journey and just get through it and just figure it out, despite whatever challenges came their way. You're also a board member and were the interim director at Camber. Tell us a bit about that. For those listening who have never heard of it, it's Camber Outdoors, they've been around for many years. They originally started as a networking group for women in the outdoor industry. They went from a women's networking group and then evolved to be a 501 C3 nonprofit around equity for gender within the outdoor industry. And that has since evolved even further to more diversity equity inclusion in the workplace in general. So a really great mission, really great vision, and amazing staff. I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to step in when Deanna stepped down and serve as our executive director. At that point, I had been serving on the board. I think it was my second year in and she just happened to leave Backcountry. So I was available to step into that role. And it was a humbling experience. I have to give a lot of credit to folks who do DEI work day in, day out, and professionally because it's very difficult work. What outdoor activities do you participate in these days? Moving and living in Utah has definitely opened my eyes to a lot more than I grew up doing. It was mainly hiking, do some fishing-type stuff, but nothing crazy, skied, a little bit as a child. So coming back out to Utah as an adult, I've gone back into skiing. Which has been a lot of fun. So that's my winter sport of choice. I also own a pair of snowshoes, which I never thought I would. So that's a fun activity for me. And then in the summer you usually find me hiking. I attempted one year to try mountain biking and had a horrible accident. So I've since said no to mountain biking and now have an e-bike. So I'm sticking to the pavement. Do you have any suggestions or advice for folks wanting to get into the outdoors? Network get to know folks, I think now, more than ever. There is a greater appetite in the outdoor industry to bring in folks who are not from the industry. I think companies are recognizing the value of having folks that come from other industries with that different experience. And, they just come with different ideas and different ways to challenge the business. And that's extremely valuable. Because the outdoor industry has plateaued a bit, and there's a lot of opportunities to continue that growth. I think oftentimes, especially for women, they look at a job description and when it says must have outdoor experience, they're like, oh, I don't have that, So I'm not even gonna apply. And actually, that was one of the things we took off the job description. And right off the bat, we saw a tremendous amount of more female candidates applying. So just in general, I'd say don't be afraid to apply. Don't be afraid to, get rejected here and there cause that's just how the job searching process goes. But eventually, if you find the right fit, it could be a really great career. What's your favorite piece of outdoor gear under a hundred dollars? I have to say I'm so thankful when I had that mountain biking accident that I was wearing a helmet, and I still have my Smith helmet. It is crushed in at the top and it's got blood all over it and I just saved it. I don't even know why. But thank goodness for that, because it totally saved my life. And I am a true believer of helmets while riding your bike while the ski slopes. Is there anything else you'd like to ask or say of our listeners before we wrap up? I have to say five years in the outdoor industry, it's been amazing. I think the folks in the industry, what I love the most is just there's this common thread of passion and appreciation for outdoor activities, nature, wellness, health. And I think it's so balanced. I really just appreciate folks being so open-minded to introducing folks that aren't as immersed in the outdoor space like myself and, welcoming me into the industry and into those activities, and showing me how fun they can be. Because without those friends I wouldn't have had that exposure. So I'm so appreciative of that, and that just speaks volumes of the industry that we're in. It's a great community. It's such a great community. Follow Up with Diana Linkedin Snippets 01:46 - 02:09 How did you get into the Outdoor Business?
