Are you an energy giver or an energy taker? It's usually easy to be nice to a perfect stranger, but how often do we remember to pause, reflect, and manage our tone when speaking to those closest to us? This week, Producer Kelly puts Jeff Kahler to the test with random scenarios - can he successfully infuse energy into the situation instead of taking it? It may not always be easy to remember, but like anything else, it will become habit with practice.   How well would you react in these scenarios?

Our guests had the idea to write their book, Delivering the Digital Restaurant, as they ''want the industry to survive this big omnichannel shift. And to do that, they need some tools and a group discussion to talk about how to navigate this"!Moments to Listen For:• The 2 Sides of Algorithmic Growth for Restaurants  - Not only has the digital age introduced new avenues for exponential growth for restaurants such as with ghost kitchens and online ordering, but it will also allow operators to use data and algorithms to optimize their advertising & operations to help grow their brand. • Bringing the Restaurant to the People - The digital restaurant will allow brands to transcend their brick-and-mortar locations, and bring the restaurant right to their guests' doorstep. Convenience is key. • Cater to Your Workers - The new generation of workers, the Millenials and Gen-We (a.k.a Gen-Z), is a different beast. They are truly digital natives and have different priorities than previous generations such as being motivated by purpose-driven work. Reaching and appealing to them will be a challenge for many operators. • Be Nimble & Aim to Innovate - The digital age brings a lot of unknowns to the restaurant industry. To be successful, operators must be willing to innovate, experience, and recognize that they're going to fail at times. Being flexible and having an agile tech stack will help you be ready for any change that is still to come.Resources:• Get your copy of Delivering the Digital Restaurant! • 5 Things You Need to Know About Gen We.• Is Your Digital Foundation Built on Sand or Stone? • 10 Best Practices for Launching a Virtual Brand & Ghost KitchenConnect with Meredith & Carl on LinkedIn!

When Carolyn Bojanowski, svp and gm of e-commerce at Sephora, joined the retailer team in 2005, it was an opportunity to pay homage to her childhood as the daughter of a candy buyer. In her mind, Sephora was the "candy store of beauty." "Sephora has always been committed to the digital experience," said Bojanowski on the latest Glossy Beauty Podcast. And that e-commerce experience had to go into overdrive during the pandemic. Not only did Bojanowski spearhead the acceleration of Sephora's in-store pick-up, but she facilitated an unlikely ally in Instacart. She also launched Sephora's same-day pick-up service to expand its customer reach. "If you can give someone back time, that is another way to think about having a luxury experience," she said. During Covid-19, Bojanowski was also tasked with translating the in-store customer service experience to online, where the practicality of in-store product trial did not exist. In addition to its thorough product pages, shade finders, quizzes and UGC, Sephora launched on Sephora.com its live home chat, which enables customers to chat with Sephora's in-house beauty advisors from the comfort of their homes, said Bojanowski. This has also created a whole new retail role for the company.

In this episode, I share the screen with Christine Pittman, the founder of COOKTheSTORY, whose passion is to create recipes that take less time in the kitchen and help women get more time at the table. As a busy single mom of two, Christine totally gets how tough it can be. She shares the wisdom after figuring things out for her own family and the transformative journey of life after Divorce. Top points you'll discover:  ✔️ Overcoming mom guilt and maximizing "me time".  Christine shares her initial feelings of sharing custody of the children. "When you're a parent, your kids consume all of your time. Suddenly, I had moments to rediscover myself and figure out what I wanted to do with that time. And that has been the most energizing and centering thing for me. ✔️ Divorce will teach you to focus on the things you have control over. "Convenience and enough food is the priority at their dad's. For me, it's making sure to have a variety of vegetables and fruits. When I used to be so fussing about that, I think it's good for the kids to see different adults having different priorities feeding themselves."  ✔️ Compromise doesn't mean caving in or giving up what's important to you. This is one of the biggest lessons you learn when dealing with your former spouse, kids, parents, and friends. You can compromise but still honour your identity, likes and dislikes, and understand how to navigate and voice what feels right to you and engage in dialogue around what will work for everybody.  Get in touch with Christine Pittman Website: https://cookthestory.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CookTheStory Podcast: Time Management Insider ______________________________________________________________ Connect with Wendy Sterling: Website: https://wendysterling.net/ Instagram: @divorcerehabwithwendy Twitter: @thedivorcerehab Facebook: @wendytsterling  Need an opportunity to share your pain points and receive judgment-free support?

What type of podcasters would we be if we didn't cover horror manga before All Hallow's Morning? So, for this spooky time of Halloween, James and Will talk about the classic horror villain that is Tomie! Skip synopsis @ 8:43 075: Junji Ito's Tomie By Junji Ito English translation by Naomi Kokubo With Lettering by Eric Erbes After the funeral of one Tomie, an entire classroom is shocked to see her arrive to class. Especially since the class was responsible for murdering Tomie and hiding her severed body parts. Tomie's presence forces the class to struggle with their feelings of fear, guilt and love for Tomie as they all question their sanity and turn on each other. But it's through the course of each tale, that Tomie gets more powerful and threatening. Turning her admirers into obsessed zombies that do her bidding. Those who claim to love Tomie eventually succumb to the urge of not just killing her, but decapitating her, shredding her into pieces and granulating her until every fibre of her being becomes one with the environment. Tomie can split into multiple copies of herself when under heavy stress, very much like cell mitosis or the heads of the mythical Hydra. She can even germinate, as each severed body part or blood drop from Tomie can grow and become another Tomie. You kill one Tomie and eventually two will pop up. Such is the case when Tomie's liver is donated to a young woman. Only for the liver to mutate and birth into a new Tomie.  The Hospital staff cut Tomie out of the woman and house her in a culture tank so to study her. Only for Tomie to soon break free. Years afterwards, an entirely new generation of Tomies are created when a mysterious man goes around injecting baby girls with the blood of Tomie.   It becomes apparent that the man who infects the children is a past super model by the name of Ryo, having once been disgraced by Tomie, Ryo accidentally burnt his face after killing her, now he seeks revenge on all Tomie beings. Planning to make sure that the infected children live long enough to see old age, in doing so he can spitefully prove to Tomie and to himself that her supernatural beauty isn't beyond the cruelty of time. And Ryo himself would have the last laugh.   When the children come of age and transform into Tomie they do their best to kill each other until there is only one surviving Tomie left. In terms of personality, Tomie is a manipulate psychopath and a narcissist. She has no remorse or respect for anyone but herself. Regardless of how many copies there are of her and who she seduces, they all share the same traits, a beautiful woman with a mole below her left eye claiming to be the true Tomie. Ryo holds the last surviving Tomie prisoner, and encapsulates her within a block of cement. He hears her cries inside the block and waits for years until the sounds from it turn into moans and howls. When Ryo breaks the block, he sees an elderly and physically gnarled woman. The truth is that he's gone mad and hallucinating. Somehow Tomie escaped thanks to this old crack, the wailing sounds being nothing but blowing wind within the hollow block. A wind that carries a somber note. Topics: Tomie is equal to all iconic monster villains through fiction, as is the case with Dracula and Freddy Krueger, Tomie shares supernatural powers and like all good monsters, she even has a consistent weakness, fire! Unlike most iconic monsters, the origin story of Tomie is shrouded in mystery. Tomie starts out as a victim but becomes much more of a threat as each story progresses. If Tomei had another power, what would it be? Ryo looks like a villain from a Brian de Palma movie or a Dario Argento movie, a nod to the Italian Giallo genre of cinema, a type of movie that mostly features a blood crazed killer going about guised in a black rain coat. Best Tomie story, Tomie vs Tomie maybe? Best story Junji Ito story? Listen for the end. Julia Ducournau (pronounced Doo-con-nor) is a filmmaker and director of Raw/Grave (2016). She is interested in the grammar of body horror and the body as the subject in film. Could we ever fall victim to someone like Tomei? Although the theme of Tomie is obsession it remains a haunting portrayal of men who lack self-respect. Junji Ito was able to depict a perversion of love and show how powerful feelings and hormones could lead to destructive behaviour. You can find the Manben documentary about Junji Ito [here]! Pop culture references/Product Placement:  Tomie's ability to multiply herself is similar to Planaria, an aquatic worm which may have greatly been an inspiration for Junji in creating the story. Junji himself may have also been aware of James McConnell's studies of memory transfer between planaria. Psychic School Wars, a 1973 science fiction novel from Japan, written by Taku Mayumura. In ‘Photo', there is a character who hates how Tomie is influencing the school and compares the situation to Psychic School Wars. Little does she know just how powerful Tomie can be. Another reference is to ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory', created by Roald Dahl and is best recognised thanks to Gene Wilder's performance as Willy Wonka, which is also based on Roald Dahl's novel ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Tsukiko from the story ‘photo' wears a t-shirt that has the movie's title printed on it.   Tomie's appearance in other media: The Tomie book is visible on the shelf in one character's living room on one episode of Kim's Convenience. As of 2021 there are 9 live action movies, Miho Kanno was the first person to play her in the 1998 movie, whom Junji Ito was responsible for casting, and Miu Nakamura was the latest in 2011.   Facebook - facebook.com/weappreciatemanga/ Instagram –  weappreciatemanga.co.uk   Twitter -   @RealJamesFitton Website – Weappreciatemanga.com Email – Weappreciatemanga@gmail.com

Food is critical to life. Just like oxygen and water, it sustains us, gives us energy, and keeps our bodies moving. But how do you choose the right food for a healthy diet ? Over the years, we've discovered that there are many factors to consider. In this episode, Simon Hill shares his knowledge on the importance of having a healthy diet. He goes into the science of the microbiome, which keeps the body systems healthy. In particular, he shares his research on plants and their importance in food for a healthy diet. Simon shows how plants can help a person stay healthy: from reducing the risk for developing diseases to slowing down aging. Your health is in your control.

Episode Highlights About Simon Hill Simon lives near the beach in Bondi, Sydney. Australia may seem scary and dangerous. But most of the dangers are overhyped. Simon's partner, Tanya, also fears shark attacks despite their low probability of appearance. The Beginnings of Simon's Journey Simon's father was a professor. So, Simon grew up with a passion for science and scientific research. At 15 years old, he almost lost his father to a severe heart attack. It turns out that Simon's family has a history of cardiovascular disease. This experience and a lack of knowledge made him feel disempowered. He felt like cardiovascular disease is determined solely by genetics. Later on, Simon learned that lifestyle and environment play a more significant factor than genetics when looking at chronic diseases. How Food Environments Affect Nutrition Most people's food choices are dictated by their food environment. Malnutrition and food scarcity are a burden for many developing countries. As these countries develop, you can see a noticeable increase in obesity and diabetes. Transnational food companies prioritize profits over health. They market ultra-processed foods towards the impressionable parts of society. The government, then, must regulate the food market for a healthier society. Convenience, cost, taste, and education also affect how people manage their diets. Education is most important in learning how to eat healthily. Food for a Healthy Diet The labels on commercially-available foods do not define food for a healthy diet. Different studies show that healthy diets follow a consistent theme regarding how much fat, fiber, and protein a person should consume. Various diets can reach this consistent theme and deliver optimal health. Plants can replace animal products and processed food for a healthy diet. Tune in to the full episode to hear about the health benefits of swapping calories from animal protein to plant protein! The Gut Microbiome There are trillions of microbes that live within the body. A diversity in microbes is a sign of a healthy microbiome. It promotes a higher number of healthy bacteria and a more resilient ecosystem. A diet rich in fiber can promote a healthy microbiome, because the soluble component of fiber is a prebiotic and serves as food for good bacteria. In turn, these good bacteria produce different types of metabolites that affect the body. For example, short-chain fatty acids such as butyrate keep your gut lining intact. Alternatively, you're at risk for a leaky gut if your microbiome is not diverse. On Prebiotics vs. Probiotics Probiotics are live bacteria that have beneficial effects on their host. However, the bacteria and their effects are transient. It's much better to focus on having a diverse fiber-rich diet first before looking into consuming probiotic supplements. Prebiotic substances are already in your gut. Having a good amount of them ensures that your digestive system is producing metabolites. Increasing your fiber intake isn't automatically beneficial. If your gut microbiome is on the weaker side, suddenly increasing your fiber intake may cause inflammation. Simon recommends introducing fermented foods first to increase your microbiome diversity. Then, look at gradually increasing your fiber intake. Dairy vs. Non-Dairy Products Debates surrounding dairy consumption are far more nuanced than what we think. The media often chooses engagement and popularity over a detailed, contextual discussion. Dairy isn't an essential food group. However, there's no problem with having a little dairy in your diet. Typical Western diets consume dairy products that are very high in saturated fats. In this case, it's best to cut back on consumption. If you're able to, consider the ecological footprint that comes with dairy consumption. Simon believes that this is the strongest argument to reduce or avoid dairy products. Low-Fat vs. Full Fat Simon recommends low-fat when you have high levels of saturated fats. It's also best to ensure that the low-fat option you're choosing is not processed, flavored, or sweetened. On Planetary Health The world as we know it is on the verge of the sixth mass extinction. Currently, the species extinction rate is 165 times faster than during the end of dinosaurs. This rapid extinction rate is a result of humanity's choices and living our lives. How Simon Feels Radically Loved Simon feels radically loved by the relationships and connections he has cultivated throughout his life. Nature is also something that he greatly values. It deserves respect and love. The environmental problems we see around us are reflective of our relationships with each other. If we can learn to be loving and compassionate, we can solve climate change. 5 Powerful Quotes from This Episode [19:40] “Most people's food choices are dictated by the food environment… The system's broken in many ways.” [25:44] “We see pretty consistently across the board when you are swapping calories from animal protein for plant protein, you're getting better health outcomes: lower risk of heart attack, stroke, lower risk of certain types of cancer, etcetera.” [29:14] “The problem is, today, we're seeing a lot of people with various conditions lose the diversity in their microbiome. And in many ways, it's a micro sort of mirror of what's happening on a macro level; we're losing biodiversity on the outside world as well at the same time.” [41:58] “You really need to listen to your body. If you're increasing the plant diversity in your diet, and you're noticing that perhaps you are feeling bloated or feeling like you have less energy, then it might be that you're dialing it up too quickly.” [51:28] “Compared to the mass extinction that wiped out dinosaurs 65 million years ago, we are seeing species extinction at a rate of 165 times faster. And that is absolutely a result of the way that we're living our lives.” About Simon Simon Hill is a physiotherapist and nutritionist.

Convenience and empowerment—this is how abortion is marketed by Planned Parenthood and its allies. Abortion is framed in terms of rights—but precisely whose rights matter is the question at the heart of America's continuing abortion conflicts. How we talk about rights and whose rights we focus on changes the way people perceive the deadly procedure that is abortion. No matter how abortion is framed, it communicates something to our culture: you are only valuable if you are wanted, and someone else gets to decide your worth. How are these messages affecting those of us who do have the chance to live? Sarah Zarr is a warrior for life who has invested her career in building a culture of life on college campuses. As a regional manager for Students for Life, Sarah equips college students as they build campus chapters, host events, and develop leadership and advocacy skills.

Guests can now meaningfully interact with Krystal like never before; via college athlete ambassadors & influencers on social media.  Early Results: Digital engagement increased from 0.2% to 3.5% in just a few months.• Shifting Focus from Value to >>>  Convenience and CraveabilityAlice introduces the idea of efficient indulgence for restaurants. Today, most guests focus more on convenience and craveability than on value. Thus, the next step forward for restaurants is to optimize the off-premise to meet guests where they are (and it's a moving target for sure!!!).• The Emerging Marriage Between Marketing and TechnologyMarketing teams are adopting emerging technologies in almost every industry because customer preferences are evolving faster than ever. Alice says Krystal is on track to eventually have 1:1 marketing (as they grow their users on their app), smart menu boards, and even using AI to improve their guest experience.Krystal Restaurants is the famous burger chain from down South with 360 locations worldwide!

Green Gab Podcast – Green Homes, Green Living and Green Companies

Recycling has gone awry, and there is plastic everywhere! Do you sometimes forget to put recyclable items, like plastic soda bottles, pill containers, and the little plastic takeout cups and lids from takeout food, in the right place and end up throwing them out with the trash? Or have you ever had something that you would like to recycle, but you do not know what to do with it?  I am Marla, the Green Home Coach! Today, I am excited to have my occasional co-host, Tony Pratte, AKA Tony, the Green Guy, joining me in my virtual studio for another episode in our series on the climate crisis, where we discuss convenience, where our plastic products come from, and tips you can use for better and wiser recycling! Creative solutions Even though Tony and I do not always see eye-to-eye on everything, we are not afraid of having difficult conversations. We are just as willing to talk about things we disagree on as we are about things we agree, to find creative solutions. Katharine Hayhoe Katharine Hayhoe is a well-known Texas-based climate scientist. She is encouraging people everywhere to open up the conversation about the climate crisis. Back in the day When Tony and I were growing up, we had to pay a deposit for the glass bottles the soda came in. We would get the deposit back again when we returned the empty bottles. We also had regular recycling drives in our neighborhoods. What has changed? Convenience, or taking the easy way out, has taken precedence over everything else, and many people do not think twice about throwing away single-use containers or packaging materials.  Impatience Our lives have become more complicated. Most people are used to getting whatever they want immediately or getting instant responses from others whenever they try to contact them, so they have become impatient. As a result, they are unwilling to make a plan to recycle something and would rather throw it into the trash immediately. The unintended consequences of convenience There was an explosion of fast food in the 1980s. Since then, it became all about convenience, and we never stopped to think about the unintended consequences of what was happening. Plastic Plastic has had more unintended consequences than we ever imagined.   Behavioral inertia As a result of getting used to doing things very easily, many of us now suffer from behavioral inertia when we need to change our habits. In a book I read, the author explains that it is far easier to change an existing habit than it is to start a new one. Swaps Get into the habit of swapping single-use or unrecyclable plastic items for items that can be reused or recycled sustainably. The numbers  In the United States, in 2017, we produced 35,400,000 metric tons of plastic. Of that, only 11% got recycled.  You cannot mix plastics that are to be recycled More than 70% of recyclable materials land up in landfills. That can happen because people throw items that are not recyclable into recycling bins, which could contaminate an entire batch of recycling. Another problem is that many municipalities have not been able to keep their recycling programs going or going as robustly as before. New types of plastic also complicate things by adding to the vast assortment of plastic products that we still need to figure out what to do with. What recycling means Recycling something means rescuing and processing the material it is made from to make something new. Driving the market We need to drive the recycling market by demanding more recycled products. That will motivate companies to provide more vibrant, sustainable, and financially rewarding recycling services. Virgin plastic The bulk of our virgin plastic gets made from petroleum. By recycling that plastic, we recycle the inherent value of those products.  Where do our products come from? Supply chains have become globalized and very complex, so many of us do not know where our plastic products come from. We need to pay more attention to that and learn more about it. Cut out the waste There are many good uses for plastic. To get the best use out of plastic, we need to cut out all the wasteful ways it gets used. Recycling labels Only one in five Americans always look for the recycling labels on items before throwing them away. Brands could help by making more of their packaging materials recyclable and making the labels on their packaging easier to see. A fast-growing number of solutions A fast-growing number of solutions are coming up for recycling. Many new companies are using less or no packaging. Solutions are also being provided by businesses like my son's company, Printerior, which makes 3D printing filaments out of recycled plastic. Some tips for better and wiser recycling: Try to use non-disposable items at least 80% of the time. Ask yourself if you truly need an item before purchasing it. If an item does not need to be packaged after you have bought it, accept the receipt and carry it out of the store. If you have to choose something disposable, choose something reusable or easily recyclable. Develop the habit of always doing whatever you need to, to dispose of items responsibly. Read the labels, and put whatever you are throwing away into the right place.   Referral Links: My website Green Home Coach Book: Living Green Effortlessly Learn how to make your home healthier for you and our world in my Love Your Everyday Green Home  One way to chip away at our mountains of plastic waste is to re-use it.

Guest K.C. Danzansky could barely believe that one could make a major by reading classic literature, analyzing it, and writing about it. She considered her English major not only fun but a good grounding in the liberal arts that would prove useful in a career. But because she loved the literary world, she figured she would remain in it, working at a publishing house or something similar. The famously low salaries and the prospect of living in the publishing mecca of New York City did not appeal, however. So she took a look at the companies that defended on campus for corporate recruiting. Consumer packaged goods giant General Mills seemed open to her liberal arts background and she thought she could put up with sales trips in pant suits for a few years. What she came to realize was that the scope and size of the organization allowed for her to try on a number of roles.While she has remained at the company for 25 years, her husband was the casualty of a round of layoffs.

How can convenience foods be part of a sustainable diet? It is well-known that healthy foods are not a simple option for everyone; either they tend to be more expensive or not as practical. For instance, when grocery shopping the healthy sources of clean proteins and carbohydrates are not the average individual's first choice. On the other hand, convenience foods are extremely easy to find, almost always affordable for everyone, and an undemanding solution for busy days.  In this episode of the Next Level Human podcast, Dr. Jade shares a complete guide on convenience based eating. From a health perspective, he explains that by following a few reasonable and realistic rules it is possible to have a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle even if you incorporate convenience foods and fast foods here and there.

This is something that seems so normal in our lives as we are constantly interviewing our clientele to learn about the way the rhythm of their life goes and then design after that rhythm. We've had a client who had their kitchen done and everything was designed and organized according to how she operates in her kitchen, not only making everything look really nice, but it was all very neat and convenient as well. A great way to go about organizing and breaking down your space is by dividing it up into zones according to what you do, such as a place for tea, or a bar, or a place for soft drinks, whatever your ritual may be. We also did a kitchen where we put a little fridge drawer on the other side of the island in order to prevent kids from accessing the main refrigerator and getting in the way of mom while she's preparing a meal.
