Sylvain and I are back on the mic together after seeing each other and being together at the Coffee Association of Canada's great conference in Toronto last week.I'm back from a whirlwind trip to NYC and have to say I had some super exciting dining experiences….first, I visited the new RH Guest House for breakfast. Then I experienced the new Starbucks concept store at the foot of the Empire State Building and my favourite restaurant Balthazar for an amazing Nova Scotia lobster pasta.And coming out of the Coffee Association conference, we've already published a special bonus episode with Benjamin Tal, Deputy Chief Economist, CIBC, talking about the big picture economic forecast and the impact on the food industry….In this episode, recorded live in person, our insightful interview with Kate Burnett, President at Bridgehead Coffee.Breaking news…Sylvain might be back on Galen Westin's Christmas Card list! A super interesting new report from the Agri-Food Analytics lab broke through the Twitter clutter and revealed some startling stats about what Canadians heard, how they shop and whom they blame for high food prices.Next, we discuss Dairy Farmers of Canada's investment in the Toronto Maple Leafs,  impressions on COP27, and the FDA's stunning approval of lab-grown chicken! We finish with a quick chat about favourite food movies and The Menu. About KateKate Burnett is the Chief Operations Officer of Bridgehead. She has been with the organization since 2017, after moving back to Ottawa with her family. Kate actively pursued a role with Bridgehead based on its commitment to people (farmers, suppliers, customers and staff), the local community and the environment. The idea of having a Bridgehead flat white every morning just pushed her over the edge.Prior to Bridgehead, Kate worked for Me to We, an innovative social enterprise based in Toronto focused on empowering people to change the world. She held multiple roles over her seven years there, including the Director of Consumer Engagement (building the retail side of the enterprise), Director of Business Development (working with partners to support initiatives and products with impact) and eventually as the Deputy Chief Operating Director (joining the Executive team to help lead and manage the growing enterprise).Kate completed an honors undergraduate degree from the University of Western Ontario with a double major in English and Psychology. She later completed an MBA from the University of Victoria with a focus on service management (marketing, operations and customer service). She received multiple scholarships including the Canada's CEO of the Year – Futures Fund Scholarship and was the President of the Student Council.Before Me to We, Kate was the Associate Director of Camp Kandalore, a traditional summer camp with a focus on leadership and canoe tripping. Prior to this, she spent sixteen summers attending and then working at Camp Tawingo, which nurtured her passion for making a difference. Kate has travelled to over thirty countries and has been lucky enough to have been able to volunteer in South Africa at a camp for children affected by HIV/AIDS as well as in Rwanda with youth affected by the genocide.She believes that using innovative business practices to make a positive impact is the most efficient and effective way to change the world. ​About UsDr. Sylvain Charlebois is a Professor in food distribution and policy in the Faculties of Management and Agriculture at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

From a young age, Time would gaze at the Moon from his window, and dreamed of to becoming an astronomer but lost courage due to his visual impairment- Tim is legally blind. One day, Tim's wife bought him a telescope to “help get him out of the house.” While stargazing with a group from the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC), Tim discovered his superpower: the ability to see in part UV light as well as having better night vision than anyone else! With his new found superpower, he would build an observatory and begin his mission to share the night sky with anyone, and everyone!  In 2014 I moved back home to Quinan, NS, and started an astrotourism business & Starlight Tourist Destination (in South West Nova), and started what would become the Starlight Development Society,  group that pursues the ideals of the Starlight Foundation to protect the night sky from light pollution, teach astronomy in our schools, and promote and help develop astrotourism products in South West Nova Scotia.Tim believes that through education and awareness of the universe, the world can become a better place. “We are all made from stardust. We are all connected. If we lose our connection to the universe, by not being able to observe it, we become disconnected from each other. I believe that by sharing the night sky the world can become a better place. By giving people a new perspective on space and its vastness, and showing them how special we really are as a planet and a species. I hope that people might appreciate Earth a bit more...”    -Tim Doucette About Tim:Tim believes that through education and awareness of the universe, the world can become a better place. Through his passion for Astronomy and his photography, Tim shows us the beauty of the heavens. In 2016 he opened the Deep Sky Eye Observatory in Quinan, Nova Scotia, which provides a unique stargazing experience to tourists from around the world. He is the chair of the Starlight Development Society and sits on the board of directors of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (Halifax Centre). Born and raised in Quinan, a small rural village in southwestern Nova Scotia, he graduated from The College of Geographic Sciences. He then received a Bachelor of Computer Science from Dalhousie University.

New users can earn up to 3% cashback for their first 90 days.The best part is Jeeves puts up the cash, and you settle up once every 30 days in any currency you want, unlike some other corporate card companies that make you pre-pay every month.

Rivers can seem very ephemeral, often changing course or drying up entirely. Yet some rivers have persisted for tens or even hundreds of millions of years, even testifying to the breakup of Pangea, the most recent supercontinent, about 200 million years ago. On the one hand, their courses may be determined by tectonic processes such as the formation of mountain belts. And on the other, they themselves can affect tectonic processes by creating continent-scale features, such as giant submarine fans. Martin Gibling has spent a lifetime studying rivers and river sediments around the world. He is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada. This episode is the first of two of our conversation about rivers. In this episode we talk about fluvial deposits in the geological record and the impact of the break-up of Pangea on river systems. In the second episode we talk specifically about the history of the rivers of Europe and the Americas, as well as the impact of recent ice ages. We end by considering how humans have changed rivers and their deposits throughout human history.

"There's no easy way to make hard decisions." - Jacques Lopez Are you a leader who has to sell to/collaborate with leaders outside your organization? If so, the latest episode of The New Leader Podcast is for you! My guest today is Jacques Lopez, Sr Director North American Channels at Veracode. Jacques holds a BSc from Northeastern University and a MBA from Dalhousie University. And, we used to work as doormen at a campus bar way back when. It was a blast to trade a few stories back and forth, as well as hear Jacques' keen insight on how to work successfully with leaders outside your organization. In this episode you'll learn: The importance of knowing exactly what you want (and how to create a partner profile) How to ensure you're working at the right level (where decision-making happens) The power of a "frame of reference" and how to create one that works effectively… and much more!   Getting on the right foot If you have an idea of what's the ideal partner profile or what the ideal relationship would look like, having that as a starting point is very helpful. Because if you don't know what you want, you can spend a lot of time running circles around people that have interest but don't have a good alignment with the company, or the value proposition you have for them just won't land.   Choosing the right person to work with Make sure you're working with someone at the right level to accomplish the goals that you have. You can't go too low or too high. If you go too low, somebody may not have the authority to try and get other people involved in the company, to help build out a better alignment. And if you go too high, you get connected to other people but, things aren't necessarily happening at the tactical level when you're dealing with a strategic CEO. So that's something you need to be aware of as well.   One critical lesson in relationship building Not everybody operates the way you operate. There are some people that are more relationship based, some are very detailed when it comes to numbers. You have to meet people where they're at and help them be successful the way they do things.   Links and Resources Connect with Jacques: LinkedIn, Email The Exceptional Presenter Goes Virtual by Timothy J.

HEAR THE HEADLINES – Pricing Tea in a Slogging Economy | Indicators suggest a recession is imminent | The International Tea Academy “Leafies” are Awarded | Sales of Herbal Infusions are Expected to Double this Decade | NEWSMAKER – Professor Sylvain Charlebois, senior director of the Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia | FEATURE INTRO – Canadian Economist Sylvain Charlebois sees a lot of positives for the tea industry but cautioned that inflation is an economic disease that will linger. Supply chain challenges remain. The macro-dynamics around commodities are getting more complicated, he said, “The fall is not going to be an easy one." High Inflation is an Economic Disease – "When you look at global issues. When you look at where the market is going, I see a lot of positives for your product in particular," Professor Sylvain Charlebois told attendees at the North American Tea Conference in September. Two immediate challenges confront the industry, inflation and the global supply chain. "So let's talk about inflation. Inflation is an economic disease. In this case, it's self-inflicted," he said. "Inflation is a big problem, but we have to deal with inflation. When people go to the grocery store, they are absolutely spooked because they know everything is more expensive everywhere. In the grocery store, it's even worse. Much worse. Consumers are trying to recalibrate their budgets just to make sure they have a roof on the top of their heads and to feed themselves, so that portion of their budget is increasing by the day. And we know the fed is going to increase its benchmark," he said. "So, in the tea business, I would ask myself, OK, are we going back to 3.5% inflation? The answer is: not in the near future."

"The best way to think about insulin resistance is that it's pre-diabetes. In the course of developing type 2 diabetes, which we see in much higher rates in people with bipolar disorder compared to the general population, one starts off with normal blood sugar levels but elevated insulin. It is the elevated insulin that pushes the blood sugar down into the normal range. This is typically something that is missed by physicians because there's been no medical indication to test for it [insulin level]. After the metabolic dysregulation progresses, patients become glucose intolerant, and at that point a doctor may pick up on it because the blood sugar is elevated - not elevated such to say that they have type 2 diabetes but elevated into the glucose intolerant range."     Episode Description: We begin by describing the symptoms of Bipolar Disease and the reasons that make it important to distinguish from depression. We consider the value of measuring insulin levels to determine if there is a contribution of metabolic dysfunction on the course of the psychiatric condition. Over 50% of patients with Bipolar Disease have insulin resistance and those who do, have a more chronic course of illness. We discuss the role of cortisol levels, chronic inflammation, adverse childhood events, and leakage in the Blood Brain Barrier. Metformin is a safe and useful medication that can reverse insulin resistance and remedy Blood Brain Barrier leakage as documented on radiologic assessment. We conclude with Cindy sharing with us her history as a Family Physician and her hope for appreciating the role of metabolic dysregulation in other psychiatric conditions.    Our Guest: Cindy Calkin, MD is a clinical researcher and Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Medical Neuroscience at Dalhousie University, Canada. She is the Medical Director of a unique multidisciplinary clinical research Mood and Metabolism Program that includes psychiatry, endocrinology and metabolism, health physics, biomedical engineering, neuroradiology, and medical neuroscience. Her group uses multimodal testing to collect detailed prospective data. Her innovation and discovery research focuses on mechanisms underlying Treatment-Resistant Bipolar Depression (TRBD) and novel mechanism-based targeted treatments.
