First, Ian and Hailey talk about the excitement and the energy young, American players like Jack Hughes, Trevor Zegras, and the Tkachuk Brothers are bringing to the game of hockey, and then discuss the San Jose Sharks placing Evander Kane on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract after his second COVID-19 protocol violation this season, and if the troubled winger can find another NHL home or not, John Klingberg publicly voicing his frustrations with the Dallas Stars after stalled contract talks, and whether Rick Bowness' stick-smashing incident following a Stars loss to the St. Louis Blues will result in a fine for the coach. Then, The Athletic's own Daniel Nugent-Bowman joins the show to discuss the Edmonton Oilers in free fall, going 2-9-2 over their last thirteen games, a COVID-19 outbreak putting a pause in their schedule, head coach Dave Tippett on the hot seat, despite the fact that GM Ken Holland has never fired a coach midseason, the possibility of Mike Babcock getting an opportunity behind the bench, the immediate need for a reliable goaltender, and more. Plus, to close things out, Ian and Hailey run through a series of Multiple Choice Madness questions about whether it's more impressive for a forward to score 60 goals or a defenseman to score 30, if Alex Nedelkovic should still be eligible for the Calder trophy this season, and if the LA Angels' “Rally Monkey” dropping the puck for a ceremonial faceoff between the Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings Sunday night was the most memorable puck-drop ever.

The 2022 season kicks off with a Patreon request straight from the 2005 Canadian tour leg. We go to Canada's biggest city in Toronto to cover a show with a clear narrative from top to bottom that had the ultimate payoff at the end. Pearl Jam arrived into town as U2 completed a four-night stay to kick off the third leg of their Vertigo Tour, which meant an opportunity that allowed for Ed to appear on stage with them opened the door for Bono to make a guest appearance during this show. Make no bones about it, we let it be known our thoughts and feelings of U2 and Bono as a whole. You may share them or you may not, but ultimately a night packed with deep cut tributes to the pioneering arena rock titans is going to be memorable for many. But after about 83 or so U2 references weaved in and out of songs and speeches, it had to end with Bono blathering in some sort of self-inspired religious tongues during Rockin' In The Free World. Would you expect it any other way?  When U2 isn't the forefront of conversation, we'll get to talk about a strong show of mainly hits that features a special performance of Harvest Moon in the encore. And for all of you Jeff Ament fans, we kick off our year with a lovefest to the greatest bass player around.

Min 0: INTRO: LLEGÓ EL DÍA D En pleno miércoles, siguiendo la tradición de ajustarse a las vacaciones escolares, el mundo del cine se auto regala una fabulosa batería de estrenos que lidera la esperada revisión de Spielberg de uno de los musicales más aclamados de la historia. Un programa muy especial que el calendario ha hecho coincidir con la Navidad y que no hemos querido desaprovechar. Min 5: UN FILTRO NAVIDEÑO DESDE EL WEST SIDE ¿Ha estado a la altura Steven Spielberg del colosal reto de revisar “West Side Story”? ¿Ha mejorado el resultado del clásico de Robert Wise? Activamos el Filtro Navideño de Estamos de Cine para valorar en su justa medida uno de los estrenos más esperados del año. Alberto Luchini, Raquel Hernández y Roberto Lancha ponderan la calidad del último trabajo de Spielberg, que lidera otra cartelera de campanillas. Atención a “Matrix Resurrection” porque va a generar uno de los contrastes más pronunciados entre Luchini y Raquel. La cuarta entrega de la saga no deja indiferente y bascula entre la tomadura de pelo y la genialidad ininteligible. Más homogéneas las valoraciones que genera el que ya es el estreno navideño para toda la familia. “Canta 2” remoza la exitosa fórmula de su primera entrega y da una vuelta de tuerca al salto a la fama de la divertida fauna de animales animados que quieren triunfar en el mundo de la música. El homenaje a U2 y a Bono se convierte en uno de los grandes reclamos de esta gran apuesta comercial para estas fiestas. Y el verso suelto de la cartelera tiene sello británico y se titula “Silent Night”, una cena navideña cargada de sarcasmo en una situación tan doméstica y ácida como apocalítica que ha cautivado a nuestros dos críticos. MIN 51. ESPECIAL BSO WEST SIDE STORY 2021 Y para nuestro diván de la música de cine nos hemos reservado un menú de altos vuelos tan deseado como oportuno. Casi 5 años después del especial que le dedicamos al West Side Story de 1961, Ángel Luque se enfunda los guantes de terciopelo para sacar del cofre la remozada y brillante banda sonora que luce a lo grande en la revisión de Spielberg. Los arreglos, las mejoras y la partitura soñada por Leonard Bernstein toman vida en el West Side Story de 2021 y el resultado es un soberbio y emocionante homenaje al musical de Broadway que dio pie a uno de las mejores películas de todos los tiempos. Los Jets contra los Sharks, clásicos imborrables como “María”, “Tonight”, “América” o “Somewhere” suenan a toda radio en el programa de cine de Radio Castilla-La Mancha. La ocasión, esta Navidad de 2021 en la que se estrenó otra pieza maestra de Steven Spielberg, se merecía –por lo menos- un capítulo como éste. Gracias por celebrarlo con nosotros. Feliz escucha. Feliz Navidad

Written and directed by Garth Jennings, the highly anticipated SING 2 sees the return of Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), the can-do koala bear who enters his team in a singing competition led by promotion king, Jimmy Crystal (Bobby Cannavale). However, in order to entice Crystal's investment, Moon suggests that he can get legendary (and reclusive) rock star, Clay Callaway (Bono) to star in his production. Peaking Crystal's interest, Moon and his friends suddenly have a mere three weeks to develop an entirely new production while convincing Callaway to come out of retirement. In this 1on1, we speak to Jennings about designing the sequel, working with Bono and whether or not a song can save your life.

Hell...the song was even in “Shrek”! But the song was originally stuck on side two of 1984's Various Positions, an album that Cohen's record label deemed unfit for release. In fact, Walter Yetnikoff, the head honcho at CBS Records told Cohen “Leonard, we know you're great but we don't know if you're any good.”  “Hallelujah” is arguably Cohen's biggest and most beloved song, as well as one of the most covered songs in history.

Talk Art HOLIDAYS SPECIAL!!! This very special episode was recorded from Pace Gallery, New York!!! We are proud to collaborate again with BMW to bring you a conversation with iconic artist Jeff Koons. We discuss Jeff's passion for art which he discovered at an early age, we discuss his student years in Chicago and working for Ed Paschke, whose technicolor renderings of superheroes and other pop icons were an early source of inspiration. We learn of Koons's first job at the Museum of Modern Art, and his first major works that invoked commodity fetishism: titled The New, they comprised vacuum cleaners displayed on or in Plexiglas boxes over grids of fluorescent light. We explore why he chose stainless steel and reflective surfaces within his most celebrated sculptures and how art can truly change lives.Jeff Koons' latest collaboration with BMW is THE 8 X JEFF KOONS, a hand-painted limited interpretation of a BMW M850i xDrive. The special edition BMW will debut in spring, but we met with Koons to discuss how and why this exclusive vehicle came into being. And as we soon learned: It's about more than just the car. The 8 Series Gran Coupe will be for sale in a limited collector's edition after its world premiere at Frieze Los Angeles in February 2022. In 2010, Koons created a unique BMW M3 GT2 Art Car which performed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. The Koons BMW M3 GT2 is now part of the BMW Art Car collection (➜ Read also: The history of BMW Art Cars), placing the artist in the same category as fellow BMW Art Car creators like Andy Warhol, Alexander Calder, Roy Lichtenstein, and David Hockney, to name a few.That same year, the rock singer Bono from U2 wrote in an editorial for the New York Times that Jeff Koons should have a part in designing the car of the future. BMW and Koons continued the conversation and are now proud to announce their latest collaboration at the invitation of Angelika Nollert, director of Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, in Munich's Pinakothek der Moderne.Follow @JeffKoons and @PaceGallery for more information.

In the early 80's, drought caused a famine that crippled the nation of Ethiopia.  It was a bad scene.  Half of the mortality rate is said to be attributable to “human rights violations.”  People around the world were moved, like Irish singer-songwriter Bob Geldof, who along with Midge Ure, wrote a fundraiser song.  Who could they get to sing it?  How about “everybody”?  The likes of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Boy George, Bono, and Sting joined forces as Band Aid to record the fast-selling single in UK history, asking us the question “Do They Know It's Christmas?”  My name's… Some songs rub us the wrong way because they're sung by shrieking children on now-oudated equipment was was not kind to female and higher-pitched voices, songs like I'm Getting Nuthin for Christmas and All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth, standards which I think think would have died away if we weren't all made to sing them in elementary school.  Some are painfully goofy, like Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer, but you almost have to give them a pass since it seems they accomplished what they set out to do.  Some songs make us their enemy by borrowing into our brains and setting up shop for hours or days on end, the dreaded holiday earworm, like Jingle Bell Rock and Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree.  The mere mention of the title is enough to activate them like a sleeper cell of obnoxious holiday cheer.   Banned You might be able to forbid people in your own home from playing songs that irritate you –and I stress “might”-- but if you can find yourself with a bit of authority and a big enough humbug up your butt, you can try to make it so nobody has to hear the song either.  For instance, the 1952 classic “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus,” sung by 13-year-old Jimmy Boyd from Mississippi.  Did you realize the song was about the little boy not realizing that his Dad was dressed as Santa?  It had to be pointed out to me, and embarrassingly recently.  People were *scandalized by the musical marriage of sex and Christmas, with one churchgoer stating “mockery of decent family life as well as Christ's birthday.”  Many pearls were clutched.  They'd probably clutch them pearls twice as hard if I'd been there to tell them Jesus wasn't born on 12/25, but that's another show.  Boston's Catholic Archdiocese denounced it and the young Boyd had to meet with church leaders to explain that Mommy and Santa were properly, sanctily married.  A West Virginia broadcasting company prohibited its radio stations from playing this “insult to Santa Claus.”  The same thing happened to one of my husband's favorite songs, Lou Monte's “Dominick the Donkey,” but the people of WV went to bat for the little donkey who could take the Italian hills that were too much for the reindeer.  The public protested the ban so forcefully that it was repealed after less than two weeks; and this was in 1960, when 20% of homes in the US still didn't have a telephone.   For every time the hubs plays Dominick the Donkey, I play the Pogue's Fairytale of New York at least twice.  A lot of folks don't like, and I respect our difference of opinions, and think it's the farthest thing from a cheery Xmas song, and I agree with y'all there.  The 1987 duet with singer Kirsty MacColl, quickly became a UK holiday classic, famous then infamous in turn.  It tells the story of a toxic couple who seem to love each deep down, but should probably not be allowed within 200m of each other.  There's talk of drug use and insults, including a certain homophobic slur to rhyme with the word “maggot.”  In December 2019, BBC radio DJ Alex Dyke said he was cutting the song from his program.  The BBC had previously censored the song in 2007 with an unconvincing word-swap, but this brought more backlash than the original version had.  The BBC reversed course for a few years, then put the censored version back up.  What do you think?  soc med   Some songs we consider absolute standards, impeccable and indispensable, made people in their day as prickly as holl and less than jolly.  The BBC worried that “I'll Be Home for Christmas” could damage British morale during World War II, so no air-play for you!  In an amazingly blunt statement that would definitely trend on Twitter today:  “We have recently adopted a policy of excluding sickly sentimentality which, particularly when sung by certain vocalists, can become nauseating and not at all in keeping with what we feel to be the need of the public in this country.”   One of the most frequently cover and burlesqued-to songs, Santa Baby, wouldn't have become the classic it did if it had been sung by anyone other than the utterly incomparable Eartha Kitt.  Who doesn't love a Christmas song dripping in sexuality, sung by a loudly self-confident mixed race woman?  In 1953, a lot of people.   Radio stations refused to play it and political officials gnashed their teeth after Kitt performed Santa Baby at a dinner for the king and queen of Greece that November.  That was an unusual sentence and I'm stalling for time to let you process it.  However, Billboard magazine reported “Neither the King nor his Queen were one whit disturbed by the chantress's performance, nor by the song.”  Kitt was quoted as saying it was ‘inconceivable that anyone would question the ingenious poetry of the song.'”  I don't know about poetry, but I do know I don't want to hear any version other than hers.   Chipmunks My hatred for this next song cannot be overstated.  I almost hired an editor just for this section. It's shrill, it's pointless, and it's been playing for 63 freaking years.  It's the goddamn Chipmunks' song aka Christmas Don't Be Late.  I'm mad already.  Named after the president, chief engineer, and founder of Liberty Records, the furry little characters are the members of a “band”, called Alvin And The Chipmunks, while a “man” named David Seville functions as their human manager, catapulting them to super stardom.  The Chipmunks, three singing cartoon rodents in Victorian nightdresses apparently, or maybe ill-fitted sweater dresses, were the brainchild of a songwriter named Ross Bagdasarian, though he was better known by the pseudonym of David Seville, the name that would be immortalized as The Chipmunk's fictitious manager.  Bagdasarian was the son of Armenian immigrants to California, who served in the Army Air Force in WWII, which is how he came to find himself stationed in Seville, Spain.  He did a bit of acting, landing minor roles in Rear Window and Stalag 17.  Songwriting played out considerably better.  In 1951, he used the melody of an Armenian folk song to write Rosemary Clooney's hit, Come On-a My House. [sfx clip]    Bagdasarian-cum-Seville began toying around with voice distortion effects, speeding up and slowing down his voice to achieve the cute high pitched sound of the little animal's voices.  Consumer tape decks at the time had changeable speeds, but usually only in simple binary multiples, doubling or halving the speed, creating sounds an octave apart. Changing speeds of voices in these limited multiples creates extremely high or low pitches that sound too extreme for most purposes.  Disney used half-speed recording for his Chip ‘n Dale cartoon characters, making the extremely fast dialogue difficult to understand. As a result, dialog recorded at that speed had to consist of very short phrases.  Seville's chief innovation was to use tape machines that could vary speeds in between these extremes, creating more understandable and thus emotionally accessible voices that worked well for both singing and spoken dialogue.   The Chipmunk Song made its debut on Christmas 1958 and immediately became a smash hit, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart.  It would be the “band's” first and only #1 song, as well as Seville's second and final, No. 1 single.  The first was the song Witch Doctor, wanna hear it here it goes [sfx clip]  I guess when you have a hammer…    A write-up in Life magazine in 1959, noted that Bagdasarian/Seville was the first case in the "annals of popular music that one man has served as writer, composer, publisher, conductor and multiple vocalist of a hit record, thereby directing all possible revenues from the song back into his pocket."  That'd be impressive enough even if you didn't know that Seville couldn't read or write music, nor play any instruments, but now you do know that, so you should be quite impressed.   The Chipmunk Song earned them three Grammy Awards at the very first Grammy's the following May.  I'm going to say that again, because I don't think you heard me.  The Chipmunks song won three Grammy's.  In fairness, one is for best children's song.  A few years later, The Chipmunks landed their own television show as cartoon characters, but it did not command the same success their music career.  After Bagdasarian passed away unexpectedly in 1972, his son and daughter-in-law took over the voices of The Chipmunks, but it would take nearly ten years for The Chipmunks made it back to TV, with their 1981 Christmas special, the ingeniously named “A Chipmunk Christmas.”     Like a holiday Jason Vorhees, "The Chipmunk Song" re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007 with the CGI Alvin and Chipmunks movie.  As of December 25, 2011, Nielsen SoundScan estimated total sales of the digital track at 867,000 downloads, making it third on the list of all-time best-selling Christmas/holiday digital singles.  #3 was Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 from Trans-Siberian Orchestra, who I've had the mixed blessing to see live – the performance was great but the stage light swept over the audience constantly; it was like having a camera flash go off in your face several times a minute.  #1 is, to the surprise of no one, Mariah Carey's 1994 "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and that's all the more attention she's getting from me.  If you ever want a real smdh moment, Google Mariah Carey's requirements to appear on camera for interviews.  The word “diva” doesn't begin to describe it.  Wonderful Now this one depends on the day.  Some days, it's so bad it's good and some days, and for some people all days, it's the regular kind of bad.  [sfx clip] Say what you will about it, you can't say Paul McCartney didn't put in the work.  Wonderful Christmastime features McCartney on guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and vocals, even the creepy-sounding ‘choir of children.'  Makes one wonder why he even kept a band around.  You see the other members of Wings in the video, but the song was all McCartney.   Like a number of holiday classics that you heard about in the episode #92, The Jews Who Wrote Christmas, Wonderful Christmastime was written on a ‘boiling hot day in July', and recorded during sessions for the McCartney II album.  It apparently took the former Beatle just ten minutes to pen the song which – some of us find that more readily-believable than others.  One of the most memorable elements of the song is the odd synthesiser sound that punctuates it throughout.  That is, if you care to know, a Sequential Circuits Prophet-5, which was also used on the hit songs Bette Davis Eyes and What a Fool Believes.  Though I suppose it's still a Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 even if you don't care to know.   It peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart and has since become of the most widely played Christmas songs on radio.   Bonus fact: The Beatles only really had one Christmas release – Christmas Time Is Here Again, which was distributed to their fan club in 1967.  I imagine that would fetch a pretty pence on the secondary market. [sfx typing] checking ebay…Oh, they're actually pretty cheap.     If you don't like the song, you're not alone.  McCartney himself isn't all that keen on it, but he has begun playing it on UK tours in recent years.  You gotta give the people what they want and clearly enough people want Wonderful Christmastime.  According to the Forbes website, McCartney earns over $400,000 royalties from the song every year, though other sources claim that figure is probably the cumulative total. Little Drummer Boy As time passes, tastes change, culture shifts, new things are created and old things fall away.  We rarely ride in one-horse open sleighs –I can't remember the last time I was even in a closed one-horse sleigh– and it seems really strange to us that people sat about telling ghost stories.  So maybe that's why I don't understand The Little Drummer Boy.  How is a drum solo an appropriate gift for a sleeping infant and the woman who just squoze him out in a cow-shed?  The ox and lamb kept time?  That's literally the drummer's only job.  Well, that and making the rest of the band's drinking problem look reasonable.  Hey, what's the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?  You only have to punch the info into the drum machine once.  [sfx rimshot] What do you call a drummer who broke up with his girlfriend?  Homeless.  [sfx rimshot]  Don't worry, drummers, this abuse isn't exclusive.  What do you call the pretty girl on a bassist's arm?  A tattoo.  That's my time, good night!   How old do you think this slow, plodding song is?  I couldn't have put a year to my guess, but for some reason it surprised me that it was written in 1941.  The composure was a teacher named Katherine Kennicott Davis.  Originally called "Carol of the Drum" –does what it says on the tin– was based on an unidentified Czech carol and intended for choirs.  One group of singers took a liking to it and propelled it to success in 1951 - The Trapp Family Singers.   As boring as it is, The Little Drummer Boy lets us draw a straight line between the Trapp Family and ‘the lad insane' David Bowie.  In 1977, Bowie was 'actively trying to normalize' his career.  Debilitating drug addiction and accusations of Nazi-sympathizing threatened to sink his earning potential, so it was a no-brainer for him to appear on Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas.  Crosby was a crooner and golden age Hollywood icon and seemed like a means to the end because, as Bowie said later, “my mom likes him.”  The promise by producers to promote the video for Bowie's single Heroes, fitting as poorly as it did in the middle of a holiday special, certainly didn't hurt either.  The special starred Crosby, his actual family, and stars of the day like the model Twiggy, who my mother has still not forgiven for coming along and making curvy, busty figures unpopular.     So Bing Crosby and David Bowie.  On paper, it made no sense.  But in reality…it made even less sense.  A negative amount of sense, if that's mathematically possible.  I mean, just look at this juxtaposition.  You can see the two together on the Vodacast app… Bowie arrived in a mink coat, an earring, and bright red lipstick….to appear alongside Bing Crosby.  Bowie agreed to producers' demands to tone his look down, but asked/begged the producers if there was anything else, anything at all, he could sing, letting them know in no uncertain terms that he hated the song.   "Ian Fraser, who co-wrote the 'Peace on Earth' portion, told The Washington Post in 2006. 'We didn't know quite what to do.' Instead of panicking, he and two other men working on the special — Buz Kohan and Larry Grossman — hunkered down at a piano in the studio basement and spent 75 minutes working up the tune.  Ever professionals, Bowie and Crosby perfected the new song in less than an hour."  It was that professionalism that actually brought the men together.  According to Crosby's daughter, Mary, who was 18 at the time and a big Bowie fan,  "Eventually, Dad realized David was this amazing musician, and David realized Dad was an amazing musician. You could see them both collectively relax and then magic was made."  Bonus fact: Mary went on to become an actress, starring in the hit TV show Dallas, but she isn't the only thespian the Crosby legacy produced.  Bing's granddaughter Denise will always have a place in my heart as Tasha Yar, first chief of security on the Enterprise D and if you don't know what I'm talking about, maybe *you're* not cool enough to sit with *us* at lunch.   The special was recorded in mid-September, but Crosby would not see it released.  He died of a massive heart attack after a day of golfing in mid-October, so the special was aired posthumously at the end of November in the U.S. and on Christmas Eve in England.  Bizarrely, The single proved to be one of Bowie's fastest-selling singles, selling over 250,000 copies within its first month and being certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry one month after its release.  And what does it say about me that I had to do a second take, beause I read it as British Pornographic Industry.  They certify very different records.  One thing that helped propel that success was the fledgeling Music Television network, which in its original primitive state actually played music videos.  When it launched in 1981, there weren't really enough videos to fill up an entire channel, so they played what they had, including the 'Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy' clip, a lot.  This prompted RCA to issue an official release in 1982 with the arbitrary single B-side of "Fantastic Voyage" from The Lodger album.  Bowie was annoyed with that move, contributing to his departure from the label soon after.  Still, it was a high-charting single for Bowie in the post-Scary Monsters era, at least until Let's Dance came out three months later.   And that's…So the question was “Do they know it's Christmas?”.  Since Ethiopia is ⅔ Christian, yes.  I'd go out on a limb and say even the ⅓ that's Muslim knows. But the important thing is that 100% of the royalties go to the cause, and that figure sits north of $250 million.  Among the luminary names involved was a pre-beard George Michaels.  This was in his Wham days when he also recorded the song you're hearing now.  Recognize it?  To anyone who just lost Whamageddon… [sfx laughter]  Worth it.  Just passing it on after Red from Overly Sarcastic took me out during a video last year.  For everyone else, as the nearest Gen-X'er.  Remember…Thanks..     And that's…So the question was “Do they know it's Christmas?”.  Since Ethiopia is ⅔ Christian, yes.  I'd go out on a limb and say even the ⅓ that's Muslim knows.

End of the Year Tune-Up Part 1: The Power of Reflection

Crina and Kirsten Get to Work

Reflection is important for skill building, mastery, self awareness and self assessment.  We learn from what happened so next time it can be intentionally the same - or different.  This is a key component to creating ease, meaning and joy in your life and in your work.  SHOW NOTES Today on Crina and Kirsten Get to Work, our work babes reflect on the power of reflection.  Sometimes we intuitively know something is helpful, and that is true for reflection,  but the statistics on the effects of reflection are particularly compelling. WARNING - do not proceed if you are going to beat yourself up about the past - this is a learning experience.  No beating up! Reflection is pretty simple - it is thinking about what you do, say, feel, experience and perceive.  It is closely linked to the concept of learning from experience in that you think about what we do, feel and perceive and what happened, and consider whether we would do differently next time - or hopefully whether we have landed on the magic formula. Thinking about what has happened is part of being human. However, the difference between causal ‘thinking' and ‘reflective practice' is that reflective practice requires a conscious effort to think about events, and develop insights into them. And here is that word again - curious!  It's about getting curious.  Once you get into the habit of using reflective practice, you will probably find it useful both at work and at home. Reflection is important for skill building, mastery, self awareness and self assessment.  We learn from what happened so next time it can be intentionally the same - or different.  This is a key component to creating ease, meaning and joy in your life and in your work.  Looking back when things go well: we learn what worked for us and know we can use those behaviors or strategies again to our advantage.  Looking back when things go poorly: learning from hindsight is not about wishing you had done things differently, which is more like regret. It's getting curious about whether there is anything you want to do differently going forward. But be careful of what is called hindsight bias: which is the tendency for people to perceive past events as having been more predictable than they actually were - meaning that we think we had more control over the outcome than we actually did. WHAT THE DATA SAYS: Recent research from the Harvard Business school into the power of reflection showed that when employees spent 15 minutes at the end of their day reflecting about what they've learned, they've improved their performance by 23%‌ in just 10 days, in comparison to those who did not reflect. Amazing - huh!  Can you imagine increasing your performance not just at work, but in your life as well just through 15 minutes of reflection?!.   Giada De Stefano, professor at HEC Paris - an economics and business management school,  tells us we work five more weeks per year now than we did in the 1970s.  This means that gains in productivity are the result of working more - not working differently.  Stefano proposes that we do not need to give more time to work to increase performance and productivity.  In fact, we need to do less and think more. To Stepfano's point, studies have found that, once we have gathered a certain amount of experience, the benefit of continuing to perform similar tasks is far inferior to that of pairing that experience with efforts to analyze and reflect on it.   And it turns out that more training has its drawbacks as well - because according to BetterUp we forget about 75% of it!  Research has found that, regardless of work experience, all employees experience loss of knowledge over time. The amount of information that people remember depreciates over time, but this occurs at a significantly higher rate among individuals who work for organizations who don't actively practice reflection (Argote & Miron-Spektor, 2011).  It turns out practice and training have their limits in increasing productivity.  Reflection is that secret sauce to add in.   The data tells us that reflection not only improves productivity and performance, but it also makes us feel better.  Studies show that brief, positive reflection practices at the end of a work day can lead to decreased stress and improved health.  Bono, J. E., Glomb, T. M., Shen, W., Kim, E., & Koch, A. J. (2013).  WHY DOES REFLECTION WORK: Research shows reflection is critical to helping us deepen and integrate learning, and effectively apply it to our work and our lives. ( BetterUp)  It is like the glue of progress - it seems to help it all stick and be solid. HOW TO BUILD REFLECTION INTO YOUR WORKPLACE Reflection is simple and building reflection into your day can also be simple.  BetterUp has some great examples for managers, including: Communicate the value of taking time for quality breaks  Encourage employees to schedule whitespace into their day to allow for reflection Hire a coach for yourself or your employees - or ask a trusted friend or colleague to be your reflection partner Do a project post-mortem Integrate reflection into meetings We can also do this ourselves.  Self-reflection requires us to look at ourselves with interest, curiosity, and inquiry, particularly when exploring our thoughts, behaviors, perceptions and emotions.  Set aside some time - even starting with once a week - the same day and time every weekCreate a list of questions for yourself Learn to identify and question your assumptions and perceptions Give yourself some time to check in to your feelings Take time to reflect in-the-moment, whenever you try a new task Talk with colleagues about your experiences Ask for feedback and observation from co-workers/supervisors Write down your reflections - even just brief phrases and sentences - looking back on these reflections is powerful. As we end this year, this is a perfect time to look back as we move into a new year to set our intentions and plans for what we want to create for ourselves in the new year.

Dr. Dietrich Brockhagen ist Physiker & Umweltökonom, sowie Gründer und Geschäftsführer von Atmosfair. Diese ist eine der führenden Klimaschutzorganisationen, welche Reisenden die Möglichkeit bietet, ihre flugbedingten CO₂-Emissionen durch Zahlung von Geld zu kompensieren. In Folge 76 erläutert der ehemalige Berater von Jürgen Trittin wie er auf die Idee von Atmosfair kam und warum Atmosfair die Touristikfachpresse normalerweise meidet. Außerdem erfahren Sven Meyer und Andy Janz, warum Bono von U2 mit seinem Claim, dass jede Gesellschaft ein „Recht auf Verschmutzen“ Unrecht habe, warum "kompensieren" kein moderner Ablasshandel ist und die Organisation mit Fakten und sachlicher Darstellung der Klimakrise anstatt mit moralischer Überhöhung überzeugen möchte.

Le noyau dur des musiciens est composé de Jeff Lynne (guitare, piano, basse, chœurs), Tom Petty (guitare acoustique, chœurs), Mike Cambell (guitare, basse, mandoline), Jim Keltner (batterie), Howie Epstein (basse, chœurs) et Benmont Tench (piano, orgue). Ont également contribué à l’album : sa femme Barbara Orbison, en tant que productrice déléguée, son fils Roy Jr, Al Kooper, George Harrison, Bono, T Bone Burnett, Steve Cropper, The Memphis Horns… Les sessions d’enregistrement de ''Mystery Girl'' avec Roy ont lieu d’octobre à novembre 1988. L’album ne sera donc pas tout à fait terminé lorsqu’il décède, soudainement, à l’âge de 52 ans, le 6 décembre 1988, terrassé par une crise cardiaque. ---Tous les jours de la semaine à 19h, dans ''On The Road Again'', Marc Ysaye retrace pour vous les meilleurs moments du ''Making Of'' : l’histoire de la création de grands albums de l’Histoire du Rock.

U2 planted the seeds for 'The Joshua Tree' during an existential journey through America. As Irishmen in the 1970s, the band grew up with the belief that America was a place of freedom and prosperity, a symbol of hope and a refuge for all people. However, global politics of the 1980s undermined that impression and fostered hypocritical policies that manipulated Americans and devastated people around the world.Originally conceived as 'The Two Americas', 'The Joshua Tree' was U2's critique of America. Rather than living up to the ideal that the country was "an idea that belongs to people who need it most," the band found that America sacrificed equality and justice for populism and fascism. This book explores the political, social, and cultural themes rooted in The Joshua Tree when it was originally released in 1987 and how those themes resonated as a response to the election of Donald Trump when U2 toured for the album's 30th anniversary.Morgan juxtaposes the band's existential journey through America with his own journey connecting with his Irish roots by becoming a citizen in the age of Trump and places U2's and 'The Joshua Tree''s relevance in context with the current political climate.Bradley Morgan is a media arts professional in Chicago. He manages partnerships on behalf of CHIRP Radio 107.1 FM, serves as a co-chair of the associate board at the Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and volunteers in the music archive at the Old Town School of Folk Music.

He has three grown children, Jesse, Kayla, and Eliana.Book description: **THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**In a world that seems so troubled, how do we hold on to hope?Looking at the headlines—the worsening climate crisis, a global pandemic, loss of biodiversity, political upheaval—it can be hard to feel optimistic. And yet hope has never been more desperately needed.In this urgent book, Jane Goodall, the world's most famous living naturalist, and Douglas Abrams, the internationally bestselling co-author of The Book of Joy, explore through intimate and thought-provoking dialogue one of the most sought after and least understood elements of human nature: hope. In The Book of Hope, Jane focuses on her "Four Reasons for Hope": The Amazing Human Intellect, The Resilience of Nature, The Power of Young People, and The Indomitable Human Spirit.Drawing on decades of work that has helped expand our understanding of what it means to be human and what we all need to do to help build a better world, The Book of Hope touches on vital questions, including: How do we stay hopeful when everything seems hopeless?
