Animals Series. Episode #3 of 4. The term “canary in a coal mine” is ubiquitous for any early warning signal. Like our fictional vignette of a miner carrying a canary into the coal mine, canaries were often taken into mines during the first part of the 20th century to test the air for poisonous gasses. The practice was so commonplace that it's become a cliché. Metaphors aside, canaries are a sentinel species, used by humans to detect environmental risks by providing advance warning of a danger. Often animals are used as sentinels because they are more susceptible to environmental hazards that humans may be in the same environment. In the case of coal mining, canaries -- or really any small bird -- are very susceptible to changes in air quality because of their rate of respiration, anatomy, and small size. Contrary to popular belief, canaries in coal mines do not have a very long history. They were only used as sentinel animals in British and American coal mines for roughly 100 years. In the grand scheme of things, that's not a long time at all. Yet, canaries have become ubiquitous with mining in general and as a figure of speech.

What does it take to trust again after an affair? It begins with a radical understanding of the multitude of ways that you were betrayed. Contrary to what you might think, an act of infidelity is more than a single betrayal. It involves a breach of emotional, spiritual, financial, marital, and sexual trust. Even more, it violates the trust you have in the way the world is supposed to work, what it means to be married, and what you thought your life was supposed to be like. Of course it's difficult to trust again after infidelity! But it's not impossible. Let this show be the first step in understanding the complex nature of trust, untangling the many ways that you were betrayed, and reconnecting to yourself so you can finally get unstuck and start healing. Top Take-a-ways: The importance of defining and untangling the many ways that you had your trust violated. The difference between losing trust in a person, an idea, a script that you have in your head about the way things are supposed to be, and trust in yourself. Why rebuilding trust in yourself always comes first, and how to begin trusting your intuition and having your own back once again. Why it takes at least two years to rebuild trust after an affair. The eight-step process for rebuilding trust with your partner (and why facing difficulty and going through more difficult times is necessary to fully restore trust.)

The infectious disease doctor believes the adenovirus-vector vaccines are responsible for the recent cases of hepatitis among kids. She also explains why Novavax is not safer than the other shots and should be avoided. Also, Pfizer's Paxlovid is likely going to perpetuate the life cycle of this virus as well.

So today, I'll be sharing the seven data sources you should consider when undertaking an Employee Feedback Audit! In this episode you'll learn: The real reason for employee survey fatigue.

Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope worked for the British government for 21 years, at the Ministry of Defense. In the course of his career, he served in a number of different posts, but is best known for work that he did between 1991 and 1994, when he was posted to a division where his duties included investigating reports of UFOs. The purpose of these investigations was to see whether anything reported might pose any threat to the defense of the UK, or suggest the existence of anything that might be of more general defense interest. Most sightings turned out to be misidentifications of ordinary objects or phenomena, but a small percentage remained unexplained. Contrary to popular belief, there was no definitive evidence that any of these sightings were extraterrestrial in origin. However, the Ministry of Defense remained open-minded about the possibilities and took no position on the existence of extraterrestrial life. Nick Pope was initially skeptical about UFOs, but his official research and investigation convinced him that whatever the nature of the sightings that remained unexplained, the UFO phenomenon raised important defense, national security and air safety issues. He was particularly interested in cases where the witnesses were pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar. More recently, Nick Pope has been involved in the program to declassify and release the MoD's UFO files and send them to the National Archives. This involved selecting some cases that would be of interest to the media, making a film to promote the release and giving newspaper, TV and radio interviews to publicize the story. Nick Pope left the Ministry of Defense in 2006. He now works as a freelance journalist and media commentator, writing and broadcasting on a wide range of subjects, including UFOs, the unexplained, conspiracy theories, fringe science, defense, intelligence, space and science fiction. Nick Pope works with a wide range of film companies, TV networks and production companies, helping develop ideas for new films, TV shows and documentaries. He contributes regularly to various news programs, chat shows and documentaries. Nick Pope works with various PR, marketing and advertising agencies, promoting sci-fi films and advertising campaigns themed around the unexplained. He has worked for clients that include Microsoft, 20th Century Fox and Sony Pictures and has been involved in promoting The X-Files: I Want To Believe and the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. Nick Pope lectures all around the world and this has included addressing the Oxford Union and the Cambridge Union Society, as well as speaking at the Science Museum, the Royal Albert Hall and Global Competitiveness Forum 2011. Nick Pope has written four books, all of which have been published by Simon & Schuster. His non-fiction books are Open Skies Closed Minds, about UFOs, and The Uninvited, about the alien abduction mystery. Both books made the Top Ten in the Sunday Times list of hardback non-fiction books, with Open Skies Closed Minds reaching number three and staying in the Top Ten for ten weeks. These books have been translated into various foreign languages. Nick Pope has also written two science fiction novels about an alien invasion, Operation Thunder Child and Operation Lightning Strike. There have been discussions about producing a film or a TV miniseries based on these books. Nick Pope lives in London. - www.nickpope.net

Jack Liu: The price of Bitcoin matters

FloatSV and RelayX founder Jack Liu has proved to be a forceful presence in the Bitcoin space. Armed with a fintech background and almost a decade of experience in digital assets, his thoughts and ideas about the bitcoin ecosystem offer both substance and, at times, challenges to entrepreneurs building on Bitcoin SV.Contrary to belief of the majority in the BSV community, Jack thinks the price of BSV matters significantly. As he tells Charles Miller on this episode of CoinGeek Conversations, his attraction to Bitcoin is partly due to its incentive design: regardless of wealth and stature, any individual has a chance to raise money using the network. “A small business is able to raise five dollars of money the same way as a larger team can raise …billions of dollars. That levels the playing field and that's ultimately the value,” he explains.RelayX seeks to build businesses on chain in a way that is free of patents and NDAs, as well as products that are interoperable. Jack's goal is to preserve one powerful aspect of Bitcoin: that it is global. “Anyone can join. What you don't want is to leverage that ledger and build a closed system on top, no matter how nice it is because then as developers and users interact with the closed economy, then you lose a lot of the power of the base layer bitcoin,” he asserts. In today's society, dependence on finance is significant. As Jack explains, this has to do with individuals earning in a fiat currency then investing and speculating with that money. He envisions a world where people will be able to be more financially independent. “If people were earning, spending, consuming and producing on a single ledger that itself had a deflationary money supply, then basically people would no longer use finance as a necessity, it becomes an option.” Unlike fiat currencies, Bitcoin as a system does not have a central authority. Jack is keen to point out that Bitcoin removes power from money and that in itself is liberating. But how do we know how the system is doing? Well, price is one way of gauging Bitcoin's performance.  Jack believes that innovations and building good utility for the ledger will help increase Bitcoin's price. As he points out, building applications that allow users to monetize instantaneously is the way to go. Users tend to overlook transaction fees if they are able to earn in heaps. In terms of transactions volume in the BSV network to date, Jack thinks there should be magnitudes more. As he says, “if you have 5 million transactions on Cryptofights per day but it's being done by like a few hundred users, that is not growing the price, that's not growing the economy.” Jack advises entrepreneurs to come up with a product that Bitcoin holders want instead of building a business based on their own likes and interests. He says its best to monetize their business even as early as inception days. He advises entrepreneurs to raise as much BSV as possible for their business without having to worry too much about failing to return the investment. Bitcoin cannot be outperformed due to its limited number, he says. As he explains, investors will benefit not by getting a return of their investment but by allocating a percentage of their Bitcoin holdings towards a project that contributes to increase Bitcoin's velocity and utility and in turn increasing the price of Bitcoin. “That is a healthy ecosystem,” he says.

Traditional music is central to Irish culture and identity in the 21st century. Contrary to what we might think, this is a relatively recent development. As late as the 1960s Trad was perceived as unfashionable and musicians were not allowed to play in pubs. 60 years later it has become extremely popular and recognised the world over. So what happen?Last weekend I sat down with Tom Mulligan, a legend in Trad scene to talk about the history of Trad over the century. Tom hales from a well known musical family and owns the Cobblestone, the best known traditional music pub in the country. Indeed it was become something of a cultural institution over the last 35 years. In this interview Tom explains the roots of modern trad from Poland, Africa, the USA and back to Ireland. He also elaborates on the intriguing story of how trad went from a marginal genre in Irish society to its contemporary popularity.While Trad has enjoyed a resurgence in recent decades, it faces an uncertain future in the 2020s. Property speculation in Dublin has seen numerous live music venues close in recent years to make way for hotels. There are fewer and fewer spaces for musicians in the city. Last year saw Tom's pub the Cobblestone became the latest to be earmarked for 'development'. Given its historic role in developing and nurturing trad music, this provoked large demonstrations and a campaign #dublinisdying. While the plans to build a hotel on the site were withdrawn last week, Tom explains how the Cobblestone is not out of the woods yet.Follow the Cobblestone on twitter and Insta Music by Liam CostelloSupport the show at Patreon.com/irishpodcast or https://plus.acast.com/s/irishhistoryThis week's special supporters areT Troy S LucasAlexanderW McGuireC Steuland T HigginsR SpowartD BohanGregP McKeyP MyersB BradyB McDonoughK StaufferM MulvaleT Murray See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Contrary to popular belief, the highest performing teams are not necessarily conflict free. In fact, healthy disagreement—or creative friction—leads to more innovation, more trust, better ideas, and higher performance. Amy Gallo, author, podcast host, and contributing editor at Harvard Business Review, sits down with Erica on this week's episode to discuss how to disagree in a human way. This conversation equips leaders and employees alike to build trust and psychological safety in relationships and teams (the foundation of healthy conflict), navigate difficult conversations, and establish norms around disagreement. They also touch on how and why there are gender differences in disagreement and advocacy, why a hybrid work environment makes conflict more difficult, and how to approach—top down OR bottom up—disagreement on whether employees should return to the office fully or be able to keep a flexible schedule. Anyone who's ever struggled with conflict in the workplace will find this conversation enlightening and helpful.  Amy's latest book, Getting Along: How to Work with Anyone, Even Difficult People, is out September 13th and available for pre-order now.Please Subscribe, Rate and Review on Apple Podcasts You can also listen to the show on: StitcherOvercast GoogleSpotify Resources:Quotes:“That leads to what Patrick Lencioni, the author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, calls artificial harmony. So it's this idea that we look like we're getting along, we're all nodding and agreeing, but then there's this sort of simmering tension or resentment that's underneath the surface that never comes up. Or comes up sideways, and you have these big explosions.” “You need trust in order to have disagreements. You need to respect the other person in order to voice your disagreement. You need to have a sense of belonging and safety. And when you don't have those things, whether it's in a marriage or on a team, it's going to look like everything's fine, because disagreements aren't coming up, but things often are very, very wrong. And you're not going to get all of the benefits of disagreeing, right you know, [like] innovation. What Linda Hill at Harvard Business School calls creative friction, that comes with you and I disagreeing, we're gonna come up with a better idea if we surface our underlying assumptions, and we articulate our point of view, and we go to bat for our ideas and then collaborate and integrate each of our ideas into something better, right? We get better work outcomes. We also tend to have stronger relationships because to disagree you need to have trust, and once actually have disagreed, you do have a conflict and you've worked through it, you've set the precedent that our relationship will survive even if we disagree.”“Having difficult conversations, having disagreements are table stakes when it comes to trying to create inclusive work environments.”“One of the basic things is, as a leader, if you haven't said out loud, ‘We will not always see eye to eye, and I think that is a good thing,' say that tomorrow to your team. Because you have to lay the groundwork that disagreement is a normal, inevitable part of other human beings interacting. And it's not going to be shut down if it comes up. We're going to hear it, we're going to listen to it. And setting norms around how do we do that.”“Part of me believes we need to reclaim this language that's always negative. To me, conflict is when our needs, wants, desires are not aligned. And we have to figure out how to align them or how to get to an answer where at least some of those desires, wants, and needs are met, but maybe not all of them.”“You need to be crystal clear about why you actually want people back [in the office]. What purpose is it serving for the organization, for them as employees? You know, people have gotten used to being able to pick up their kids from school or at the bus stop. You're asking them to disrupt a routine that they've gotten used to and, as you say, have been able to do their jobs just as well.”“Given what the labor market looks like right now, I would be very hesitant to enforce something that's going to make a lot of people unhappy.

Contrary to popular opinion, Jesus doesn't dictate to believers what to do. He offers them choices and tells them which one will work out. It is up to the believer to choose and follow the right one. Jesus leads us on the path of discipleship.

Lake Effect Church, Grand Rapids MI

A re-storied life is what happens after the Holy Spirit enters and redeems your past, gives you victory for today, and hope for tomorrow. As a result, your life tells a different story and you live a different story. So, how does that happen? In this series, Pastor Jack will explore ways God intersects your story, and how we live differently as a result.  First up, kindness! Contrary to its rather bland reputation, kindness is one of the most powerful weapons we have.  In this moving message, Pastor Jack explains why.

A conversation with Alexander Olson (independent scholar, British Columbia, Canada) about the secret lives of olive trees and oak trees in Byzantium. Contrary to what you may think, these were not cultivated consistently in the Mediterranean ecosystem of the Middle Ages; their uses to the human population fluctuated over time, giving the trees a history of their own, albeit one shaped by that of the people around them (and vice versa). The conversation is based on Alex's fascinating book, Environment and Society in Byzantium, 650-1150: Between the Oak and the Olive (Palgrave Macmillan 2020).

So Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the Negeb. Now Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. Genesis 13:1-2 This is the first time wealth is mentioned in the Bible. The Bible doesn't view wealth as inherently good or evil, rather it is neutral. What makes it good or bad is the way it is used and its effects upon you and others. Contrary to popular belief, money is not "the root of all evil.” However, "the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil,” (1 Timothy 6:10). This proves to be true in Lot's life.    When he and Abram part ways, Lot will choose for himself and his livestock the prime parts of the land. Abram gets the leftovers but he trusts that God will provide what he needs. Lot's selfish decision is the best possible way to grow his net worth…so he thinks. However, Lot's value system proves disastrous. It puts him in close proximity with those who will eventually take him as a prisoner of war. This separation proves to be a good thing for Abram, but for Lot it was bad.    There are healthy separations in life. Uncle Abram steps in to clean up the mess. (After graciously deferring to Lot over the land deal.) He leads a team of soldiers to free Lot and his family. Sometimes you have to bring a righteous fight to bring peace. The Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer said, “For a Christian to be a pacifist in a fallen and broken world means that we would desert the people who need our help the most.” Abram and his men get the job done. We should value what God values which are things not of this world. These are things of eternal consequence. After a few bad decisions, we see Abram trusting God more and more. We see his faith growing. The example is for us.

Razib Khan's Unsupervised Learning
Alex Nowrasteh: the last migration expert standing

Razib Khan's Unsupervised Learning

In this episode of Unsupervised Learning Razib talks to Alex Nowrasteh, the director of economic and social policy studies at the Cato Institute. Alex is also the author of Wretched Refuse?: The Political Economy of Immigration and Institutions. His beat at Cato is immigration, and he has been keeping a close watch on the transition between the Biden and Trump administrations. The first issue Razib and Nowrasteh address is the reality that the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a massive crash in immigration to the US due to Donald J. Trump's executive orders. Curiously, Trump justified the border closures, not on public health grounds, but to safeguard American jobs. Additionally, Nowrasteh claims that Joe Biden's administration has been “Trump's second term” when it comes to immigration levels, as the migration rates have not reached the levels before the COVID-19 pandemic. Though Democratic activists have argued for very liberal immigration policies, Nowrasteh observes that Biden's 2020 campaign was only marginally more conservative. Contrary to expectations, immigration has been sidelined as a major issue despite Democrats controlling the Presidency and Congress. Nowrasteh asserts there has been “no interest in liberalizing immigration” within the administration, as they fear the political consequences. Pivoting to the international stage, Razib wonders about the exodus of Ukrainians due to the Russian invasion. Nowrasteh commends European generosity in taking in refugees, but he believes that ultimately most of the migrants will remain in Europe due to simple economics. Ukraine was the poorest nation in Europe, and Razib and Nowrasteh wonder if a post-war Ukraine will be filled with the old, the very young and those with few prospects, as the productive working-age population permanently decamps to Western Europe. Next, they discuss the global landscape of demographic transition and the reality that only Sub-Saharan Africa has high fertility rates. Nowrasteh observes that in fact, the Middle East might be the major destination for African migrants due to the collapsing population and the demand for workers in the region. Another obvious target to African migration will be Europe, but it is clear that the US is likely to be a destination when the immigration system relaxes and opens up.  Nowrasteh pivots back the US, and argues that despite all the rhetorical excesses that veer to open borders in the Democratic party, operationally the party hierarchy is much more conservative in terms of policy implementation. Razib points out that some elements of the Left associated with environmentalism, in particular the Sierra Club, have been associated with immigration restrictionism. Nowrasteh then observes that many conservative immigration restriction groups actually have pasts where they were founded by and associated with liberal population control environmentalists in the 1970's. For example, the current website of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) declares that “America's immigration and border controls have fallen apart due to ineffective leadership from Washington. We face a true national emergency!” Paul Erhlich, Stanford ecologist and environmentalist author of the The Population Bomb (for which the first director of the Sierra Club wrote a foreword), was on the board of FAIR until the mid-2000's. They close the conversation by reflecting on the global “birth dearth” and the possibility of how many Americans there might be at the end of the 21st-century (sorry Matt Yglesias, a few fewer than 1 billion).
