It Strengthens Your Joints. Numerous studies have shown that, contrary to what your sedentary friends may sometimes argue, running does not cause arthritis. New research shows, in fact, that running may actually help strengthen your joints against future wear and tear, says Jean-Francois Esculier, leader of research and development for The Running Clinic (headquartered near Montreal, Canada) and a medical professor at the University of British Columbia.   In a Sept. 3 paper in Sports Medicine, Esculier's team examined 43 studies that had used MRI to measure the effect of running on cartilage. One major finding of these studies, he says, was that the impact from running squeezes water out of cartilage and into the underlying bone. That means that an MRI taken immediately after running will show a decrease in cartilage thickness. So, Esculier says, “If you want to say running is bad, you can show a study that shows it reduces the thickness of the cartilage.” But the effect is transient and harmless, he says, because the moment you finish your run, the cartilage begins to reabsorb water and expand back to normal. “It only takes an hour,” he says. In fact, he says, running may actually be beneficial. Historically, Esculier says, doctors, researchers, and runners were taught that cartilage simply is what it is, and won't respond to training. “But we now know that cartilage can adapt,” he says. “Even with novice runners, after only 10 weeks, you see changes in cartilage so that it can actually tolerate more load.” What's happening, he says, is a side-effect of having fluid squeezed out of the cartilage into the underlying bone. When it comes back, he says, it brings with it nutrients that feed the cartilage and make it stronger. “So not only is running not bad for your joints, it's actually good for your joints,” he says. It isn't just beginners whose joints can strengthen with use. Studies of more experienced runners, he says, suggest that they have developed cartilage that is more resistant to the type of impacts seen in running than that of non-runners. One of the more dramatic studies looked at competitors in the TransEurope FootRace, a 4,486-kilometer mountain run (2,787 miles) that went from Sicily to northern Scandinavia in 64 days. A team of scientists followed the runners, using a portable MRI to assess them every 900 kilometers or so. Amazingly, Esculier says, they found not only that the competitors didn't have cartilage damage, but that their cartilage adapted during the race. About Bill's friend London Marathon - Raphael Pacheco Deb Connelly - Monday Running   What's New in the 303: Small Town America at the Heart of Gravel Racing? The Rad Dirt in Trinidad Shows Us Why Posted on October 5, 2021 By Becky Furuta If the heart of gravel racing is the wild west of cycling – where the rules are few and weirdness is welcomed instead of scrutinized – small town America is its soul. The lure of gravel racing is in the long, off-road adventure. It's tricky trails and hellacious hills and mud so thick it's like riding through peanut butter and rolling roads with expansive views. It's dust and limestone chunks and pea gravel that bury your tires like quicksand. Due in part to its grassroots heritage, gravel remains the antidote to the technology-driven, aggressive and often super-competitive mentality of road cycling. Most of today's gravel grinders began as small-scale events, and often with no entry fees. Despite their growth, they're dripping with the same low-key attitude that attracted participants in the first place. Small towns and gravel are perfectly paired. A convergence of factors have fueled gravel's popularity, but all speak to quiet country roads with little traffic and natural scenery. The character of these towns shape the events and the way they unfold. Trinidad, Colorado is no exception. And the quirky town on the New Mexico border may well become one of gravel's new hotspots. The small city of 9000 residents was founded in 1862 after rich coal seams were discovered in the region. By 1910, Trinidad was a company town. Colorado Fuel and Iron operated the largest steel mills in the West, and dozens of mines, coke ovens and transportation lines cropped up to support local industry. CF&I created small communities for the workers they recruited to come from Europe, believing they were less likely to try and organize. To the contrary, this led to one of the darkest chapters in American labor history. Just a few miles north of Trinidad in the Spring of 1914, Union organizer Louis Tikas and 20 others were killed in a violent company crackdown known as the Ludlow Massacre. It was a bloody insurrection that occurred in protest of brutal working conditions. Three of the victims – a woman and her two children – suffocated in the dirt pit where they were hiding. By the 1920s, the coal industry was fading but Trinidad found a new, strange prosperity when mobster Al Capone and his family took the town during prohibition. They were able to easily blend in with local Italian families who continued to call the city home. Lavish hotels, a Carnegie library, an Opera House and the oldest synagogue in the state of Colorado cropped up in what would be called “the Victorian jewel of Southern Colorado.” Just having dirt alone isn't enough to make Trinidad a gravel success story. Part of an event's draw is the community itself, and how well they embrace the cyclists who come to visit. It's about the community and the culture, the adventure and the Instagram images of rolling hills and farmland. It's about getting people to drive hours in search of something different. Trinidad seems to understand all of that. City Council members greeted riders at the start and the finish. Restaurants enthusiastically marketed to gravel tourists. (Just ask me about the singing waiters at Rino Italian Restaurant downtown.) The route featured unique terrain you won't find at other gravel events. Only time will tell if Trinidad's next identity is built around bikes and outdoor tourism, but judging by the reactions of participants in The Rad Dirt Fest, it's right on track. Trinidad, like so many other rural communities, may well become a town transformed by bikes.     Video Of The Week: Ironman Chattanooga 2021 Highlights   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War, the United States and its allies enjoyed a near monopoly on economic, military and ideological power in a suddenly unipolar world. Over the decade and a half that followed, the U.S. emerged as the dominant power atop a liberal international order in large part shaped by its preferences.  But the rise of China and resurgence of Russia as great power competitors has challenged Washington's global leadership role, while offering new options to countries seeking alternatives to the U.S.-led order. That coincides with the emergence within the U.S. and other Western democracies of movements questioning the foundations of that order. Combined, these trends have significantly weakened the United States' ability to maintain its hegemonic position in a rapidly transforming international landscape. This week on a special edition of Trend Lines, Daniel Nexon joins WPR weekly columnist Howard French to discuss the rapidly changing global order and the United States' place in it. Nexon is a professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. With Alexander Cooley, he is the co-author of “Exit from Hegemony: The Unraveling of the American Global Order.” If you would like to request a full transcript of the episode, please send an email to podcast@worldpoliticsreview.com.

Evolution of Nature Infrastructure Policy

President Biden's January 2021 Executive Order, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad, emphasizes the urgency of taking action to build climate resiliency and specifically calls for the inclusion of nature-based solutions. Combined with the $1 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act approved by the US Senate in August,  2021, which describes major infrastructure projects to be undertaken, these represent an unprecedented opportunity to incorporate Engineering With Nature approaches into infrastructure policy and projects. Our guests are Todd Bridges, Senior Research Scientist for Environmental Science with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and National Lead for EWN; Sarah Murdock, Director of US Climate Resilience and Water Policy at The Nature Conservancy; Justin Ehrenwerth, President and CEO of The Water Institute of the Gulf; and Mindy Simmons, Senior Policy Advisor, Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Business Line Manager at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.   The evolution of infrastructure policy can be seen, in part, through our experience with storms. As Todd notes, “following Hurricane Katrina, our collective focus was risk reduction. After Hurricane Sandy, the focus expanded to include resilience. Those events, separated by several years, intensified the dialogue, in a positive way, on engineering with nature and nature-based solutions.”   Work done by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in Cape May, New Jersey before Hurricane Sandy demonstrates the importance of natural infrastructure to storm risk reduction. Working with USACE, an ecosystem restoration project was undertaken that included holistic dune restoration, hydrologic improvements, and habitat restoration. According to Sarah, “before the project there was a history of flooding of the communities behind the preserve area. After Sandy, the dune restoration stood up and those communities only experienced negligible flooding.”   The Water Institute of the Gulf (TWIG) was founded in response to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Justin describes the opportunity for incorporating natural and nature-based solutions “to create a blended approach that addresses the need for built infrastructure, married with natural infrastructure.  For example, levees and flood walls blended with barrier islands and marsh to create a multiple lines of defense strategy that ultimately yields not only economic benefits through the protection of property and businesses and communities, but also social and environmental benefits.”   Significant hurricane and storm events have clearly shaped policy at the federal level, but as Mindy notes, the Corps has been implementing engineering with nature solutions for over a century, describing the Yolo Bypass, designed by the Corps in the 1930s that helps divert flood water near Sacramento, California, while also providing valuable fish and wildlife habitat. From Mindy's perspective, “hurricanes over the past century have brought a lot of attention to the Corps' capabilities and Congress has provided direction through Water Resource Development Acts (WRDA) requiring the Corps to explicitly consider natural and nature-based solutions for flood risk management, hurricane and storm damage reduction and ecosystem restoration.”   The benefits of employing natural and nature- based infrastructure is significant. Our guests believe that expanded value can be “unlocked” by including nature-based solutions, or natural infrastructure, as an integrated part of infrastructure investment.  According to Sarah, “if we equate nature as a form of infrastructure, we can unlock the trillions of dollars that this world spends and invests in more traditional infrastructure and really think equally of nature as delivering a lot of the services that are essential.”  Measuring those benefits is the focus of our discussion in Episode 2.  As Todd says, “Our ability to describe, define substantiate the benefits and the costs related to nature is really the key to opening up a treasure box of natural value that all people can benefit from.”   Related Links:  EWN Website ERDC Website Todd Bridges at LinkedIn Todd Bridges at EWN Sarah Murdock at LinkedIn The Nature Conservancy Justin Ehrenwerth at LinkedIn Justin Ehrenwerth at The Water Institute of the Gulf The Water Institute of the Gulf Mindy Simmons at LinkedIn USACE Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program EWN Podcast S1E6: Assessing the Value of Natural and Nature-Based Features in Coastal Storm and Flood Risk Reduction Executive Order No. 14008, Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

We all experience trials and different tragedies in our lives. Unfortunately, many of them are unforeseen, so typically we are ill-prepared for them when they happen. Many find it difficult to stay motivated during times of uncertainty. Today's guest, Maggie Lam, is here to tell her personal story of not only persevering through tragedy, but using it as a catalyst for growth. Maggie believes that experiencing hardships is an opportunity for transformation and to bring about a better version of yourself. It's not that you never allow yourself to feel sadness, grief, anger, or any other emotions, but you allow yourself to experience them, process them, and then accept what has happened and decide how to move forward with intentionality. Ready to turn tragedy into hope in your own life?Tune in! About Maggie Lam: Maggie Lam was born in Hong Kong and moved to Canada in 1991, leaving behind her parents, 2 brothers, and twin sister. She quit school in grade 9 and didn't speak much English when she immigrated. A few years later, Maggie lost her twin sister in a car accident. That motivated her to start her own business, a consignment store in downtown Calgary, in 1996 with hopes of immigrating her parents to Canada in order to take care of them. Around this time, she met the love of her life and got married. They had beautiful twins, a boy and a girl. At this point, Maggie's life was magical. They had everything we wanted until suddenly, tragedy struck. Today, Maggie's kids have grown up and are 22 years old, and she has been working at an insurance company called Combined. She has been with this company for 5 years and is very passionate about what she does. Mentioned In This Episode: Find more resources on my website

Hyperautomation is quickly changing how we work – all while the barrier of entry into the tech is slowly lowering. Combined, this all allows more people to take advantage of opportunities in the tech world, while also shaping its future. Hear from Rizel Scarlett, a director at G-Code House who's helping women and non-binary individuals start their careers in tech, and Spotify's Global Intelligent Automation Leader Sidney Madison Prescott. Both touch on their tech origin stories, how the nature of work is evolving, the role hyper-automation is playing through it all, and more.   Key Takeaways: [3:40] Sidney shares how being an outsider in the industry has actually been an advantage in her work with Spotify. She came in with less preconceived notions about the process of hyper automation, and a fresh idea of what it could really mean to hyper automate the process of work. [5:11] The language of the tech world can seem daunting to try and understand. At G{Code} House, Rizel is helping to pave a smoother path for women in tech and nonbinary individuals of color. She helps them rise above imposter syndrome and step into their highest potential. [6:46] Sidney explains exactly what hyper automation is and how it works as an enablement tool. She talks about how it shapes our idea of what it means to be a human in the workforce. [10:27] The pandemic has shifted the nature of how we work, and Botany is an app that uses automation to increase engagement between engineers. Rizel appreciates it for not only increasing the visibility of a person, but seamlessly gathering important information. [14:25] If we can get past the fear of change and our innate trepidation towards disruption, hyper automation can help us be better at our jobs. Sidney speaks to how Spotify is introducing this change to their workflow. [16:57] We can use hyper automation tools, but it isn't a stand-in for the human connections that foster authenticity in the workplace. [18:27] There is power in the vulnerability of saying “I don't know”. Rizel encourages her team to never be embarrassed of staying curious, and admitting when they don't know something. [21:03] New technologies may make some jobs obsolete, but it can also mean new and emerging opportunities. Sidney has her eye on new experiences, and things hyperautomation can help us reimagine the way we work. [22:42] The next era of true innovation and hyperautomation is going to be how we can take what humans can do today and enable us to do it in an augmented fashion. [25:05] Can we rethink what it means to do work and experience the world? Yes, but we have to be willing to question everything. If we want a wider perspective, we have the responsibility to make our workplaces accessible, authentic, and inquisitive.   Quotes: [3:40] “Being an outsider helped me to come in with less preconceived notions about what it meant to look at an existing workflow, optimize that workflow through some sort of automation design.” - Sidney [8:02] “How do we rethink what it means to be a human in the workforce?” - Sidney [12:37] “Automating the little stuff helps, so you can focus on the actual human element of helping that person.” - Rizel [18:05] “We can't always have the answer. And that's more than ok. It's brilliant. The power of saying I don't know comes with the potential to learn and embrace new ideas, in new ways.” - Jo [18:46] “There is a distinct and wonderful culture at Spotify where we are encouraged to bring our authentic selves and uniqueness to the forefront of the work that we do.” - Sidney [19:22] “I see future generations playing a very big role in this, because that disruptive nature and spirit is what's going to enable us to think in these very creative ways about disrupting the business phase.” - Sidney [20:13] “If innovation is what we want, we need to foster a workforce with diverse perspectives. That starts with the hiring process.” - Jo [22:36] “If we want the wider, more encompassing perspective that greater diversity offers-- from more women, from more nonbinary people, more people of color-- we have the responsibility to make our workplaces accessible, authentic, and inquisitive.” - Jo   Continue on your journey: pega.com/podcast   Mentioned: Resilient Coders G{Code} House Botany Rizel Scarlett GitHub Sidney Madison Prescott

The Purge franchise is one of the most iconic dystopian action horror series of all time and the man behind it, James DeMonaco is not stopping anytime soon.Jame is our guest today and even though we talk a great deal about the various Purge films he's either written or directed, which are all fan favorites, we start off with his most recently released film, This Is The Night, that was digitally released on September 21, 2021, after a prior theater release on Sep 17, 2021.This Is The Night, drama stars Frank Grillo, Lucius Hoyos, Jonah Hauer-King, Bobby Cannavale, and Naomi Watts. It is set in the summer of 1982 Staten Island with the release of Rocky III as its backdrop. The story tells of an average teen who embarks on a quest in his Rocky Balboa-obsessed town that swirls in his family members. Watts and Grillo will play with his parents. His family must confront its greatest challenges and the family realizes that the only way to live is like there's no tomorrow.I have tons of questions for James in this interview, which I am sure you, my tribe will appreciate. I have been a fan of some of his work but clueless he had written other top-ranked films on my list, it came as an exciting shock to discover more that James has written, directed, or produced. Besides screenwriting, directing, and producing projects like the Purge movies,  he's also written for TV and gets credit for writing The Negotiator, Staten Island, Jack, and Assault on Precinct 13.  As a child of 5 years old, he would beg his more for a pass to watch the 4:30 ABC network movies and would visit the cinema often. At seven years old, he went to see, Apocalypse at the cinema and that changed everything for him. Leaving that theater with the desire to be part of that experience of whatever happened on the screen. Through screenwriting, he landed his first production gig with director Francis Coppola, for the 1996 movie, Jack, starring Robin Williams. The inspiration for The Purge was birthed during James's time living in Paris and Canada. It came mainly, from his relationship against guns even though he had grown up around cops. The experience in Europe and Canada, in general, were the complete opposites he had observed. This was around the time mass shootings in America were on the rise in the early 2000s. Combined with an aftermath dark thought from a road rage incident curious about what it would be like if we all had a day pass, turned into a masterpiece original screenplay. But dressed in a science fiction dystopian world. The Purge: Anarchy - A couple is driving home when their car breaks down just as the Purge commences. Meanwhile, a police sergeant goes out into the streets to get revenge on the man who killed his son, and a mother and daughter run from their home after assailants destroy it. The five people meet up as they attempt to survive the night in Los Angeles.It was challenging to find someone willing to finance a ‘nihilistic' and ‘un-American movie life The Purge. James and his partners got about fifty rejections because of how dark the script seemed.   Until finally with help from Jason Blum who said it was a great fit for his low-budget horror model on his deal with Universal Studios, to be produced by Blumhouse Productions and Platinum Dunes.The studio took a shot at it and the first Purge movie in 2013 albeit on a $3 million budget, grossed $89.3 million. The film starred Ethan Hawke, Lena Headey, Adelaide Kane, and Max Burkholder as members of a wealthy family who find themselves endangered by a gang of murderers during the annual Purge, a night during which all crime, including murder, is temporarily legal.The franchise includes The Purge: Anarchy( 2014), The Purge: Election Year (2016), a prequel, The First Purge (2018), The Purge TV series(2018 to 2019), and The Forever Purge (2021).There is a sixth Purge movie in the works. And the franchise has grossed overall over $450 million against a combined production budget of $53 million.We go deep in the weeds on these projects and James's writing process.Enjoy my conversation with James DeMonaco.

There's nothing quite like the Double Cluster — two bright star clusters that stand side by side. They're easily visible to the unaided eye — especially under dark skies, away from the troublesome glow of city lights. The clusters are in the northeast at nightfall, below the “W” outlined by Cassiopeia. They wheel over to the northwest by first light. The clusters are known individually as NGC 869 and 884. They're about 7500 light-years away. Combined, they're about ten thousand times the mass of the Sun. Yet they contain more than 10,000 stars. The Sun is a fairly heavy star, so there are a lot more stars that are “skinnier.” So the clusters have a lot of stars that are small and feeble. Fortunately for skywatchers, the clusters are young — only about 13 million years old. At that age, they still have quite a few stars that are big, bright, and massive. Those stars are the reason the Double Cluster is easily visible. The stars will burn out and expire fairly soon, though, so the clusters will fade by quite a bit. Astronomers have recently discovered a wide “halo” of stars around the clusters. It forms long filaments that extend hundreds of light-years into space. Because the clusters are so young, the stars in the halo weren't pulled out of the clusters. Instead, they probably formed along with them. And they plow through space together — extending the size of the beautiful Double Cluster.  Script by Damond Benningfield Support McDonald Observatory

Not only did Byzantium achieve greater feats of art and science than did Rome, it safeguarded (and advanced) for nearly 1,500 years the ancient knowledge of the Greeks and Romans. Combined with exposure to Islamic and far-Eastern (India and China) learning and wisdom, the Byzantine Empire was, at one point, the height of knowledge on Earth. Evidence suggests the European Renaissance was brought about an influx of Greek scholars from 1200—1450. . . . Later, the fall of the Byzantine Empire is thought to have led to the Renaissance. https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=1c13371e97834ac8a835a6ddff6204ef
