This episode seeks to answer a burning question - what does an artist do with a piece of the Berlin Wall? In our last episode, we interviewed Dr. Jim Doti, Professor and President Emeritus of Chapman University in Orange, California (chapman.edu), about how Chapman secured a piece of the Berlin Wall for the university's lovely campus. Today I am honored to be joined by Chapman's own Professor Emeritus Richard Turner, the artist who designed Liberty Plaza where Chapman's Berlin Wall is displayed. Liberty Plaza is breathtaking - set amongst crepe myrtle trees, the Berlin Wall sits in an oval reflecting pool ringed by Abraham Lincoln's quote "A House Divided Cannot Stand." A stone chair inspired by the Lincoln Memorial sits on a mound facing the wall encouraging students and visitors to consider the importance of freedom. Richard tells us how his time in Asia in the 1960s inspired his beautiful public art projects, which range from metro stations, public parks and water treatment facilities to a justice center, veterans' memorial and a university chapel. His public work is guided by a desire to make pieces that are accessible but not obvious, pieces that reveal themselves over time to a diverse audience. Thank you, Professors Turner, Doti and Chapman University, for this amazing story. To learn more about Dr. Doti and Professor Turner's efforts to bring the Berlin Wall to Chapman University, visit https://www.eastgermanypodcast.com/s3e5 and https://www.eastgermanypodcast.com/s3e6.

Industrial applications are one of the primary adopters of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, with business critical operations being informed by data collected across a fleet of sensors. Vopak is a business that manages storage and distribution of a variety of liquids that are critical to the modern world, and they have recently launched a new platform to gain more utility from their industrial sensors. In this episode Mário Pereira shares the system design that he and his team have developed for collecting and managing the collection and analysis of sensor data, and how they have split the data processing and business logic responsibilities between physical terminals and edge locations, and centralized storage and compute.
Designing a data platform is a complex and iterative undertaking which requires accounting for many conflicting needs. Designing a platform that relies on a data lake as its central architectural tenet adds additional layers of difficulty. Srivatsan Sridharan has had the opportunity to design, build, and run data lake platforms for both Yelp and Robinhood, with many valuable lessons learned from each experience. In this episode he shares his insights and advice on how to approach such an undertaking in your own organization.

This is part 3 of a special 3-part virtual talk in partnership with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and the Health Design Lab at Thomas Jefferson University. Architects are reimagining the places where we live, work, and gather. Many modern indoor spaces are sealed shut and climate-controlled. The pandemic prompted people to open the windows, move activities outside, and control the flow of indoor air. From plastic sneeze guards to graphics for social distancing, new norms sprang quickly into place. What worked and what didn't? How can everyone have access to healthier spaces? Panelists include Jennifer D. Roberts, University of Maryland School of Public Health; Jennifer Tobias, Researcher, New York City Streateries; and Andrew M. Ibrahim, University of Michigan and HOK The panel was moderated by Morgan Hutchinson and Ellen Lupton. Video archives of the series are also available at CooperHewitt.org.

Such a lovely world —if it weren't for the people!Let's get rid of them.* * *In the last segment on Precepts & Putin, I finally got around to asking what all these ethical and political issues have to do with Design thinking, pointing out that even such large-scale dilemmas are subject to analysis and problem definition, with design intent being the underlying premise. What kind of intent rationalizes waging war, visiting death and destruction upon fellow human beings? What is the intent behind the design of the defense of Ukraine? Which of these is worthy of admiration and emulation?Usually we ascribe good intentions to those programs of action designed to yield the greatest good for the greatest number. And usually the politicos profile their cause in those terms. But it seems that the majority of actions ostensibly taken on behalf of something greater than ourselves, upon closer examination, reveal the same old group of benefactors benefitting from corruption and graft, with other groups, such as draftees, conscripted or mercenaries, suffering the negative consequences. Not to mention innocent civilians. Designing around such human faults is the central problem of government.Hypothetical solutions to international tensions include designing governing systems that will meet the needs of the populace without requiring the acquisition of goods and services, revenue and resources, from others, especially against their will. Setting aside the human motives in prosecuting a war of aggression, which may range from relatively rational impulses, such as gaining access to seaports and land bridges, to fantasies of power and glory, or myths and cultural memes. Self-sufficiency seems to be a worthy aspiration that has fallen by the wayside in a world-around pursuit of ever-greater consumption and materialistic lifestyles. The age-old question of how much is enough, manifested in traditional Zen monastics as limited to seven possessions, and in Design as the self-sustaining systems of minimal life support on the International Space Station. The question of reliability of the replenishment of supplies through a Russian-sponsored program came up as a sideshow of the Ukraine debacle.So it is self-evident that Design as a problem-solving process has limitations. In cases of widespread madness, which is a known issue in history, but even more acute in an age of global interconnectedness through the internet of satellite-supported mobile media, the most we can do is design our personal response to the continuing crisis. In doing so, we may come up with an approach that has scalability, in other words that is widely adaptable by others. Hunkering down in basements and fortified buildings is the last-resort option we witness the survivors in the cities of Ukraine that are under siege. But we are all under siege, whether we recognize it or not.During the Cold War we were told that the Soviet Union not only posed the threat of nuclear Armageddon, but actually had designs on invading the USA. I would try to imagine what that would be like. The logic of invading and trying to control something as sprawling and ungovernable as a whole country escapes me. It is now clear that even a small country like Ukraine is not going to be a pushover.But in the absence of an aggressive incursion ever materializing — knock wood — we are still facing homegrown takeovers of the political system by factions that may not preserve the precious freedoms we have come to take for granted. Behind that wave of anxiety recycling at a frequency of every two years or less — the endless election campaign — we have the threat of another pandemic. And looming over all, on the not-too distant horizon, the emerging, relentless cataclysm of climate change. On what planet do you have to live, to decide that now would be the perfect time to wage a war?Instead of throwing up our hands in despair, let's consider the Design approach.As designers, we are trained to approach development of the new in a systematic way, usually for a client group with fairly clear goals and objectives. One of the fundamental principles of applied design is that we focus our efforts on altering the environment, rather than attempting to alter the people directly, or for that matter, the various members of client organizations. Design stops short at the edge of psychology, or management training, although those systems are also subject to design, in a sense.Another important principle is that the design process works best when conducted as a dialog, or an evolutionary group process. Methods have evolved for gathering and integrating input from large numbers of “stakeholders” or end-users into the design of any program. In fact, this was the topic of my Master's thesis at the Institute of Design. Executed well, this approach generally results in more satisfactory, long-lived solutions than an “ivory-tower” approach, where a strong individual or subgroup develops and dictates decisions on design intent with little or no input from the folks they are trying to effect, the end users and purchasers of the product or service.The process necessarily proceeds in phases, which, while not truly distinct and separate, have rather logical starting and ending points. These are usually defined as something like the following:Phase I — Problem DefinitionPhase II — Concept DesignPhase III — Design DetailingPhase IV — Prototyping & Beta-testingPhase V — Production & DistributionWe might be well-advised to look at our daily Zen practice in the light of these phases. While the design of anything new involves creative intuition, insight, and other immeasurable attributes, the process inevitably cycles through some version of these stages, with measurable results based on acceptance of the target market segments. Of course, the whole project often goes “back to the drawing board” — nowadays the computer interface — again and again, for revisions and re-development. In fact, the design process can be said to never be truly final, as it is responsive to ever-changing conditions and needs. This open-ended viewpoint may be frustrating to those who long for instant closure. In that, it is like zazen training. Design is akin to the Zen outlook, which regards nothing so dependable or “given,” as change. Let's look more thoroughly at the first phase, Problem Definition.The word “problem” has a somewhat negative connotation. Because in the business environment we generally want to emphasize the positive (business can be a somewhat paranoid context), we tend to use the word “opportunity” instead. Or we will refer to it as “Project Definition.” For our purposes, let's stick with “problem,” at least for now.What, exactly, is the “problem”? Why do we want, or feel we need, to establish a Zen Center, for example? Why not just practice alone, assuming we've decided we want, or need, to practice? We can point to many teachings of the Ancestors which admonish us that the “real” Zen is not the province of the loner, but is to be found in the “marketplace” in concert and interaction with our fellow beings. We can also point to the practical, enlightened self interest aspects of forming a sitting group: the social and psychological support of the group for the individual, and the sharing of responsibilities, as well as understanding.As we discussed at length in the “Priest & Householder” segment of the podcast, dana, the practice of generosity, includes providing the conducive environment for practice. Part of that aspect of being truly conducive to Zen practice is the respected tradition of face-to-face training, which has been set aside during the last two years of enforced isolation and social distancing owing to the covid pandemic. As in any creative process, it is natural to challenge any assumptions, including that the in-person form of training may not be necessary. So the stressors around the social dimensions of training — in any area of endeavor, including Zen — become a salient factor in redefining the problem of personal practice.The haiku poem at the beginning of another segment reads:Dharma and KarmaDharma trumps karma,but it is not an escape —Consequences comeSome would fault Zen or Buddhism for failing to adequately address larger issues, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death, “…given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and plague, and by means of the beasts of the earth…” Revelations chapter 6, according to Wikipedia, our current Bible, or Tower of Babble, depending on your viewpoint. Add to that the causes and conditions of climate change, covid, and access to nukes, and you have the devil not only in the details, but consequences on a global scale. Great timing for waging a war. But it is not the fault of Zen Buddhism that we are facing these disasters. In fact, Buddhism teaches this very Dharma lesson, that karma is not individuated but collective. We share karmic consequences of the decisions of our leaders, however benighted. It is their very lack of dharma that is the problem.It is possible, from the perspective of Design, to anticipate problems caused by human ignorance and willfulness resulting in interventions in the predictability of natural processes, such as climate cycles. It is within the realm of possibility that we can design and build personal sanctuary to survive the worst that Mother Nature can throw at us, in her efforts to bring about a rebalancing of the planetary forces that we have trifled with for the sake of short-term profit, ephemeral power, and self-aggrandizement. For example, some tried and true approaches can limit the impact of weather upon our domiciles. Such as earth berm housing, covering the shelter with layers of earth to protect and insulate the interior from the elements. Use of unconventional building materials and joining systems can result in earthquake- and hurricane-proof construction, as one of the members of our former affiliate in Charleston, SC specialized in. He and friends rode out Hurricane Hugo in 1989 in one of his buildings, which didn't lose so much as a shingle. Homes in the direct path of blowtorch-like tornadic winds face a different dilemma, but clearing surrounding forest, controlled brush fires and the like, as Native Americans performed as stewards of the forestland, can mitigate the damage.Individual householders can take these drastic steps to protect themselves and their properties, if they have the wherewithal and perseverance. Survivalists have historically built bomb shelters and taken other extreme measures, including arming themselves to the teeth, in preparation for the worst dystopian futures imaginable. But the cost is enormous, both in resource investment, and quality of life.On the other hand, persuading large groups of people, and governments, to forego their wasteful and indulgent lifestyles for the sake of practical adaptation to predictable outcomes of depleting and wasting resources for the sake of short-term goals, is, to say the least, a known issue.The design of government, in the context of a world economy, where every functioning component is increasingly interdependent with every other — another familiar Buddhist principle — is another seemingly intractable problem. It is the “tragedy of the commons” writ large, where so-called leaders of local government gain power running on platforms of populism or nationalism, playing to the weakness of the people who want to believe that their lives and fortunes are independent of those of the rest of humanity around the globe.It is apparently even a daydream in the eye of the wealthy that they, or their heirs, can escape Earth to settle another globe, such as Mars, in due time. This is where science fiction meets fantasy. And reality is left to take the hindmost, along with the Devil. Disposable planets.On yet the other hand, we could adopt a stoic stance of resignation in the face of seemingly insolvable problems, doing what we can on a very local level to prepare for the worst. R. Buckminster Fuller, affectionately referred to as “Bucky,” called his approach “comprehensive anticipatory design science.” The idea is to anticipate emerging problems, causes and conditions — including human survival — on a more comprehensive basis, as predicted by “world-around” trends in resources, technology and behavior. And then, turning the trick, come up with solutions that we will be ready and able to deliver, when everyone else finally recognizes the problem. If it is not already too late, that is.Fuller also had an interesting take on politicians and their role in this recurring dilemma. Paraphrasing, he said that we turn to the politicians for answers. But if they had any answers they wouldn't be politicians. They would be out doing something positive, rather than doing their utmost to maintain status quo for themselves, their sponsors, and their constituents.The latest example is the late Orrin Hatch, who just passed into his next cycle of “rebirth into the cycle of creation of suffering for ourselves or for others,” the last line of the Loving Kindness Sutra. His belief system as a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would not allow that notion. A United States Senator from Utah from 1977 — the year we incorporated Atlanta Soto Zen Center — to 2019, Hatch's 42-year tenure made him the longest-serving Republican U.S. Senator in history. Whether that record of feeding at the trough is worthy of emulation I leave to your discretion.But I urge you to recognize that none of this would surprise Buddha. His teaching was described as his tongue, wide and long. There is nothing so outrageous as to be outside its all-inclusive embrace.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

Dine and Design Series Part VIII “This isn't just me on the menu…There's a bunch of beautiful minds that go into it.” -Sieger Bayer Episode Description: Most people want to eat the healthiest foods available, but it can be difficult to do when we don't know where our food comes from. Buying directly from local farmers gives us the ability to shop at places that care about our health as much as we do. In addition, when we buy locally sourced food, we know that we're getting quality foods year-round rather than eating something grown elsewhere, which might have been sitting in storage for weeks, in conditions that aren't ideal for taste or nutrition. Buying local produce allows us to savor crisp, fresh flavor and foods' nutrients at their peak. However, freshness isn't everything when it comes to food. A lot of products have been sprayed with chemicals that can be harmful to our health, so it makes sense to buy locally wherever possible. This gives us the opportunity to advocate for our well-being and support farmers who practice sustainable farming. Not only that, buying directly from local farmers means getting access to more varieties of produce than what might be available in stores. We can also find vendors who are happy to explain how they grow their food and answer any questions we might have about their products. It's also a great place to get inspiration for cooking as many vendors are thrilled to share recipes and cooking tips. Etta Culver City is a celebrated neighborhood restaurant that serves delicious, wood-fired food in a fun, relaxed dining environment. Led by two-time Michelin Chef/Partner Danny Grant and the What If Syndicate restaurant group, Etta and its sister companies Monarch, Maple&Ash, Celestina, and Kessaku aim to serve nutritious, savory, and high-quality food. To do this, they make sure they only buy fresh ingredients directly from local farmers. In this episode of EI's Dine & Design, Justine and Bridget interview Etta's Executive Chef, Sieger Bayer. Listen to their fun exchange as Chef Sieger talks about the beginning of his journey with food, building relationships with local farmers, capturing the eyes and palates of diners through the art of plating, and how he helps chefs in-training to be better at their craft. Chef Sieger also reveals his passion project for the first time and tells the audience how they can get involved! Meet Sieger: Sieger Bayer is the Executive Chef of Etta Culver City, a neighborhood restaurant that serves delicious, wood-fired food in a fun, relaxed dining environment. True to its namesake, “Keeper of the Hearth”, Etta is known for its perfectly baked wood-fired pizza and other familiar dishes that are perfect for the whole family. Sieger understands the impact of buying directly from local farmers on the quality of food served, the well-being of their customers, and its benefit to the farmers themselves and the environment. Sieger has also partnered up with Erika Chan and other artists on an art-driven cookbook, re.c.o.o.k.e.d You can connect with Sieger and the fellow cookbook authors and artists via instagram using the links below.

**This month, May 2022, How I Lawyer is teaming up with the Personal Jurisdiction Podcast (https://www.personaljxpod.com/) to feature five interviews on the important topic of mental health in the legal profession. Learn more here.** In today's episode Personal Jurisdiction hosts Hallie Ritzu and Allison Freedman speak with University of Michigan Law Professors Bridgette Carr and Vivek Sankaran. Bridgette Carr is a Clinical Professor of Law and the Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives at the University of Michigan Law School. She is also the founding director of the Law School's Human Trafficking Clinic, the first clinical law program solely devoted to addressing this issue comprehensively. Bridgette is also a first generation college graduate who wasn't sure law school was for her. She didn't so a journal or apply for a clerkship, and instead spent her spare time during law school working at a local legal aid office and an asylum shelter. Despite now being an expert on human trafficking, Bridgette hadn't heard of human trafficking work until after she graduated from law school. Vivek Sankaran is also a Clinical Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School. He directs both the Child Advocacy Law Clinic and the Child Welfare Appellate Clinic, through which law students represent children and parents in trials and appellate proceedings. He is also a father of three boys, he loves coaching youth sports, and he is learning to play the guitar. Together they teach a course that they created called “Finding a Fulfilling Life in the Law” at the University of Michigan Law School. In it, they ask students to consider what they want out of life after law school and how they can create that life. The course applies innovative principles of problem solving to the concept of designing your life in and beyond law school. Bridgette and Vivek also recently launched an exciting new business—LawLifeProf Coaching—to help lawyers in practice build a toolbox for a fulfilling life. In their conversation they discuss why being curious, trying new things, and staying connected to people you care about can help you to design a fulfilling life in the law. There is no yellow brick road, there is no checklist - but Bridgette and Vivek share many pieces of advice and personal reflections for anyone who is not quite fulfilled in their career.
