A few years ago, Kristian Hansen accidentally bought a pair of women's jeans. In the process, he discovered a problem that needed to be solved in a way that didn't replicate existing challenges within the fashion industry. Fast forward to today, where Kristian gets called “the Jeans Guy” and for good reason. Kristian is the co-founder and CEO of Slø (pronounced “slow”). At Slø, Kristian and his team are redefining what it means to build companies through community. Having generated a $360,000 pre-seed and a 100,000 person wait list ($10M projected revenue) with $0 ad-spend, they are starting the slow fashion revolution. Kristian is a mission-driven founder currently on a journey to solve the climate crisis through eco-conscious capitalism, the power of consumerism, and data. Not to mention he has 700K followers and 6.8M likes on TikTok. In this episode, Kristian shares how those lady's jeans and what he did with them, kicked off a series of events that lead to the founding of Slø We also talked about: Eco-conscious capitalism and consumerism Slow versus fast fashion Some of the business challenges of moving away from product standardisation and how that affects strategy and scalability Getting engagement through feedback The value of community and listening to them The power of TikTok and some of the concerns around its future RESOURCES MENTIONED: Website: https://slojeans.co/ TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@kristianfrommntn WeFunder Round: https://wefunder.com/slo See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
SPECIAL GUEST Jennifer Bryson https://www.jenniferbryson.net/ NO one was telling young women that you are designed to have children. To marry and have children. That is a fabulous beautiful thing. They had only heard about climbing that success ladder. HEADLINE: Advice to a Young Woman: Secrets That Feminists Don't Want You to Know by Jennifer Bryson God wants something from me. It has been a time of tremendous learning and prayer. I have integrated my faith w/ my work life right now. I learned German when I was a teenager so I am currently translating Catholic works done by a wonderful German author. HEADLINE: Feminism and Marxism Were Spawned out of the Same Zeitgeist: An Interview with Jennifer Bryson The four ‘waves' of feminism—although some argue that there have been five or six at this point—are all just variations on the same idea with the same end. While each of these waves has distinct traits, I want to focus on the broader problems with feminism—found in all its iterations—by taking a closer look at its primary goal: to change the structure of society in order to improve the lot of women. QUESTION: What do feminist want to do w/ society? ANSWER: So it sounds deceptively simple and deceptively nice. Summarized they want to improve the lot of women by changing the structure of society. The first part lures people in b/c it sounds so nice. Sin is real in the world, there are real life problems and injustices. The second part is where it becomes bad. The agent of change in society are these claims that someone has a special knowledge and change the ENTIRE structure of society at the Meta-Level. Mary Wollstonecraft wrote A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. She went down to France at the end of the Revolution. Notice how, in this paradigm, women no longer need to tend to their own souls. Their problems are always blamed on external forces. This is an important and common thread throughout the many varieties of feminism. The response we need to have toward feminism is…..NO. People are so worried about offending people and others so we don't just say no. Eco-system - they try to micromanage and change everything for just one member, women. This has set everything out of balance. Women are now suffering too b/c of this. Is feminism responsible for today's gender ideology? Yes unhinged woman - coming from a world view in which woman is no longer a creature created by God but woman is something that can be made or become something that was or is. Becoming what someone wants to be is in the hands of that human being. First came the normalization of single career-women. Then, the normalization of married women intentionally without children. Then normalization of lesbian women. Then normalization of women roaming in and out of various forms of relationships or even just hook-ups. These share two underlying shifts. First, a reconceptualization of what a woman is, now ever more distance from her capacity to bear new life with a man. Second, they share an assumption that what a woman is can change, even be helped along by rolls of the revolution along the path called “progress.” With change itself made normative, we should not be surprised that an attempted normalization of men saying, “I too am a woman!” is now underway. It is unrealistic to expect an audience to understand what a feminist Catholic. The effect of what they are doing is to affirm feminism and all its problems. We don't need the ideology of feminism. Very few people understand what ideology means. We need to tell our young women to think about what you want your life to look like at the age of 60. Do you want to be surrounded by a loving husband? Do you want to have beautiful grandchildren to love on? We must use our YOUTH to find our loves, to start your family. The doors of life will begin to close when we get to a certa...

At least a dozen climate protestors were arrested on Thursday morning after hundreds of activists shut down the headquarters of Citibank, which has provided $333 billion in funding to fossil fuel projects since the Paris climate agreement took effect. We start off with several minutes of the sounds from the protests, followed by comments by protestors Ted Glick, Laura Wolfson, Eco of the Green Worker Alliance, and an activist who traveled to Phoenix for the protest. Climate activists are organizing a wave of protests around the September 17 climate march and rally in NYC around the upcoming climate summit at the United Nations.

A 7x telly award winning host, filmmaker, writer, and photographer, Alice has travelled to some of the most remote and beautiful places in the world. Alice has documented her solo adventures on her popular youtube channel “Alice Ford Adventures”. Alice creates videos on adventure travel, National Parks, hiking, outdoor exploration, sustainable living and wildlife. “I'm an adventure filmmaker, travel addict and a Stuntwoman, but most of all a traveler, explorer and lover of our earth. I love to get outdoors and hike in the mountains, explore off the beaten path destinations and get up close with wildlife.” Alice's first solo travel experience in her late 20s was a life-changing one. Travelling to Europe, she was inspired to see more of the world and to do more adventuring by herself. Despite concerns and fears, Alice managed to overcome them by being in contact with local people and having an agenda when she travels. Alice wants to encourage more women to get out and explore the world. One of Alice's most memorable experiences was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and going on a safari in Tanzania. The challenges of hiking at high altitude were mitigated by the support and encouragement of other women. Alice Ford is truly an inspiration for all those who love adventure, nature, and eco-tourism. *** Don't miss out on new episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast, which are released every Tuesday at 7am UK time.

We are rewinding to a conversation with Dr. Samantha Montano all about disaster management, in response to our recent episode on the concept of disaster capitalism. We get into everything you've ever wanted to know about living with stronger hurricanes, tornados, heatwaves… and just how we can protect our communities. Dr. Montano and I discuss her interest in disaster recovery in New Orleans immediately following Hurricane Katrina and the Levee Failure. Samantha educates of the phases of Disaster Management (and what can go right or wrong in each one!), and gaps in our current legal and political systems when it comes to actively preparing for and mitigating events that are often incorrectly referred to as ‘natural disasters.' We also dig deeper into the mismanagement of the covid catastrophe response. This episode was originally published December 2021 under the title "Disasters Aren't Natural: Managing Catastrophes + The Climate Crisis. Dr. Montano is an assistant professor of emergency management at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. She is the author of Disasterology: Dispatches from The Frontlines of The Climate Crisis published by Park Row. She earned her B.S. in Psychology from Loyola University New Orleans and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Emergency Management from North Dakota State University. Thanks to our sponsor today!!

1.9.23What Happens Next?Why Are We So Anxious About Earth? | 83 New this season: Subscribe to Monash's YouTube channel to watch full episodes. The world's heating up, and so is our anxiety. Climate anxiety, or eco-anxiety, is an unprecedented and growing mental health crisis. How do we wrestle with a planet-sized problem? This week, host Dr Susan Carland begins a three-part exploration of climate anxiety. She's joined by Climate Council CEO Amanda McKenzie, who defines climate anxiety as a rational concern about our future – or the lack of one. Monash University's Dr Rhonda Garad has found that climate anxiety's impact on young people is especially pronounced, leading them to make major life decisions early. Dr Susie Ho, a regular attendee of the UN's Conference of the Parties, is concerned about young people's avenues for advocacy. She discusses their feelings of powerlessness and anger stemming from the lack of effective action, which has led to a surge in climate activism. Although there are parallels between previous global existential threats and the dangers of climate change, Professor Alan Reid believes climate anxiety is distinct due to its long-term nature and lack of government and corporate action. These entities play a significant role in addressing climate anxiety. Unfortunately, as Australian Conservation Foundation CEO Kelly O'Shanassy points out, they've failed to address the challenge, exacerbating our fears. A full transcript of this episode is available on Monash Lens.

Eco-friendly paper and bamboo straws may have a chemical compound that is dangerous for humans. Scientists think the best replacement for single use plastic straws is stainless steel. Then, listeria invades the milkshake machine at a fast-food restaurant in Washington State killing three people.

Today opens with an interview with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. He was the prosecutor who was investigating corruption within Burisma and Joe Biden demanded he be fired. The interview really isn't new for those of us who looked at it back during the first Trump impeachment. The details were all plain to see. It's a shame it's taken so long for others to finally see the truth. At the same time Viktor Shokin's story is in the news, we also just learned that Devon Archer had a meeting with then-Secretary of State John Kerry just weeks before Shokin was fired. It's yet another named individual in the Obama administration who is connected with Hunter Biden's business dealings and the influence peddling operations involving Joe Biden. While on the subject of secret meetings in the White House, we are also learning that Bidden staffers met with Special Counsel Jack Smith's aides before the Trump indictment around Mar-a-Lago were issued. George Washington University Law Professor and Constitutional Scholar Jonathan Turley says that meeting is particularly troublesome and “raises obvious concerns about visits to the White House” while Smith and his staff were conduction their investigation. There is no legitimate purpose for the DOJ staffer to be meeting at the White House unless it's to coordinate their attack strategies. I remind everyone that the House Judiciary Committee has sent a letter regarding the big Fani Willis indictment, concerned about elements of collusion. It seems they are all willing to break whatever laws they want to achieve their ends. Attorney Lawrence Caplan has filed a challenge in federal court to have Donald Trump removed form the 2024 race, citing the 14th Amendment as the reason. As my friend Wendy Patterson says, “In the old United States of America, people were innocent until proven guilty. Trump has never been charged let alone convicted for starting an insurrection. If the judge uses the Rule of Law, this will be dismissed.” Let's hope so, but I'm not encouraged given all that we've seen to-date. Mollie Hemingway says that America can no longer say we do not prosecute political opponents of the ruling regime. No matter what happens in the coming weeks or months, the Biden regime has forever stained what had been a pristine record of having never done that before. As if we need more examples of a regime that is completely at odds with the Rule of Law, we spend a moment reminding you of who Professor Pamela Karlan is, how she was at Facebook to help censor the Hunter Biden laptop story and then got a plum job in the DOJ. She is now behind the lawsuit being brought on Elon Musk and Space-X for not hiring illegals. You can't make this up. A government contract that states all employees must be citizens is being pushed aside because Musk embarrassed them when he revealed their Censorship Industrial Complex. Because of that, he must be punished. There is a push to bring back masks and the Covid fear porn is on the rise. Don't fall for it. We all need to push back as hard as we can against this. Be ready to quote the latest study from the NIH stating the highly touted N95 masks may expose wearers to dangerous levels of toxic compounds and are linked to seizures and cancer. Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo just recently slammed the mask mandates as “terrible policies” and also encouraged people to not comply. Eco-terrorists are the ones to blame for almost all of the wild fires around the world. Greece has arrested 79 so far of these arsonist scum who want to convince you that man is causing climate change and they are willing to destroy nature, pollute the air and kill animals and people to prove it's true. If any movement has to resort to terrorism to win, they are worthy of destroying. So, we end with some facts and knowledge from our good friend, Professor Ian Plimer. He once again reminds us that carbon-dioxide is not the cause of warming. The climate has always been fluctuating and human emissions have nothing to do with it.

Will using paper straws save our oceans? Does caving to single-use plastics make you feel dispirited? If you spend hours reading the headlines, you might become so paralyzed by climate change that you simply want to give up. New mental health research suggests that Eco-anxiety and doomscrolling are making us too depressed to go green. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

진행자: 조혜림, Naomi Ng 1. [Weekender] 'Old money' rises as the new black in fashion 기사요약: 부자들의 패션 ‘올드머니룩'이 새로운 유행이다. 과시보단 기본에 충실하지만 좋은 소재, 모양 등 디테일에 주목한 아이템들로 꾸미는 스타일이다.  Old money refers to wealth that is deeply rooted in tradition, or wealth that is inherited rather than acquired through personal earnings. In this regard, the idea behind the old money look means looking like someone who comes from generational wealth. *rooted: ~에 뿌리(근원)을 둔 *inherit: 상속받다, 물려받다 *acquire: (노력, 능력으로) 습득하다, 획득하다  Typical characteristics of an old money look centers on eschewing logos and wearing clothes finished with luxurious materials such as cashmere and silk. Neutral shades, subtle details, monochromatic ensembles and tailored attires also constitute another cornerstone of this fashion aesthetic. *centers on: ~에 초점을 맞추다 *eschewing: 피하다, 삼가다 *monochromatic: 단색의 *cornerstone: 초석, 주춧돌  Another factor is that the old money trend is relatively easy to follow, unlike the Y2K trend, which emulates the kitschy pop culture and maximalist lifestyle of the late 1990s and early 2000s. The Y2K trend has since gone beyond fashion to restaurants, bars and other retro consumer products. *emulate: 모방하다 *kitschy: (인기는 있지만) 질 낮은 물건, 예술품 기사원문: https://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20230817000759 2. More Koreans to suffer from 'climate depression': experts 기사요약: 최근 급격한 기후 변화로 인해 기후우울증을 겪는 사람들이 많아지고 있다. 단순한 날씨 변화로 인한 우울감이 아니다. 기후 위기가 가족, 친구 그리고 인류에게 위기를 가져올 것이란 우려로 이 때문에 출산을 기피하는 사람도 생기고 있다.  “Already, the World Health Organization is taking the issue of climate depression seriously. If climate change continues, more and more people may suffer from depression,” said Suh Kyung-hyun, a professor from the department of counseling psychology at Sahmyook University and president of the Korean Psychological Association of Culture and Social Issues. *take sth seriously: ~를 심각하게 여기다, 진지하게 여기다  Climate depression, or eco-anxiety, is defined as the fundamental distress over climate change and its impacts on the landscape and human existence. Eco-anxiety can manifest as intrusive thoughts or distress about future disasters or the long-term future of human existence and the world, including one's descendants, according to experts. *fundamental: 근본적인, 핵심적인 *distress: (정신적) 고통, 고충, 괴롭히다 *manifest: 나타내다, 드러내다 *intrusive: 거슬리는  The feeling there is nothing they can do for climate change and the climate depression lead to a lack of will to give birth, beyond just worrying about future generations. In a ChildFund Korea survey, when asked if they had thought of giving up childbirth due to climate change, 43.3 percent of 1,000 respondents answered affirmatively. There were 185 out of the 1,000 respondents who said they actually had given up plans to have kids due to climate change. *beyond: ~저편에, 그 너머에 *affirmatively: 긍정적으로, 확정적으로 기사원문: https://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20230817000578
This is one of my favorite podcast conversations of all time. When your first psychedelic was given to you by your friend and teacher Richard Alpert (Ram Dass), there is a good chance that you yourself are a legend. And Jim Fadiman is that. One of the true pioneers and revered elders in a field that has been deeply woven with my own life for the past 24 years. Jim Fadiman is a renowned author, educator, and co-founder of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (which later became Sofia University). We trade stories about our experiences while weaving in discussions about microdosing's effects on the brain and how to drown out fear with love when navigating challenges. Additionally we touch on the difference in perspective between Ego and Eco (and how much there is to learn from trees), reincarnation, the connection between psychedelic use and kindness, and the importance of focusing on divine play and truly enjoying the game of life.

Alchemist Farm is a small family farm team headed up by Franchesca & Ryan Duval along with their two children in Northern California. Known for being pioneers of humane breeding and hatching, no male chicks are killed on their farm as they are at large scale hatcheries and all of their heritage breeding groups are free to roam on their separate pastures.Franchesca was born and raised in Santa Cruz, CA of German, Greek and Italian descent. Franchesca's great grandfather owned a German bakery in San Francisco. Franchesca was studying to be a midwife and a psychologist before she had the opportunity to start her own project. After finding out male chicks are killed at large scale hatcheries; Franchesca and her husband Ryan decided to start hatching their own. Starting with six eggs and a small incubator , the start of Alchemist Farm began. Franchesca shares her knowledge and experience on the podcast about heritage breeds, egg color, feed for chickens and answering many of your pressing common questions.Alchemist Farm raises their chickens for health, temperament, egg color and climate resilience. Their birds are raised for hatching eggs and sending baby chicks all over the US. The farm is also Zero waste and using solar power to make a better impact on the world. https://www.alchemistfarm.comShow Noteshttps://www.foodoriginspodcast.com/podcast-episode-35Support the show
Can you REALLY make great money running a program that you love and that's based on what you do best? Rebecca Lee does. And she's got a year-long waitlist. As a social worker and supervisor for social workers, she felt a pull to create something totally different, something that wouldn't fit into the box of supervision or therapy or even coaching as we know it. At first, she struggled with giving herself permission to do it. In this episode, you'll hear how she created something that only she could create and why her family's farm is part of it. If you've wondered if your idea is too out there, this is going to give you a big dose of permission to create your program. Rebecca Lee is a Clinical Supervisor and Eco therapist who works with therapists, wellness professionals and healers to tap into their own rhythm, health and vision so they can create an impactful and joyful professional lives for themselves. Her work is centered around how we can re-connect with our authentic landscape through social justice, anti-oppression, seasonal landscape relationship, Yoga and Ayerveda practices. Here's some of what we talked about: Creating a group program for social workers and other givers who want to find a new way of working and living Helping her participants step into their natural rhythms and give themselves permission to do what they really want to How she built the year-long program, Becoming Home and her other program, Supervision Circle Running in-person retreats on her family farm Providing asynchronous 1:1 support in her programs Using mostly word-of-mouth to fill her programs with a year-long waitlist!

In this episode, Sachin interviews Dr. Bryan Walsh. Sachin bumped into Dr. Walsh at ECO, the CellCore Conference. After talking, Sachin invited Bryan to be a guest on Perfect Practice. Bryan is extremely passionate about functional medicine. He brings over 25 years of experience in helping us become better clinicians, looking at our patients through a slightly different lens and upgrading our paradigm so we can be of better value to the people we want to serve the most. Key Takeaways: [2:12] Sachin welcomes Dr. Bryan Walsh and thanks him for joining the podcast today. Sachin speaks of producing evidence-based treatment driven by awareness. There are more tests coming onto the market and more supplements and more research being done every year. [3:10] Bryan started as a fitness specialist. He read much about nutrition. Before going to naturopathic school, Bryan went to a functional medicine weekend seminar produced by a lab. He was amazed by all the available tests. That hooked him on functional medicine. [4:06] Bryan then went to naturopathic school where he met his wife. He learned about many tests and did them all: organic acid test, salivary cortisol test, urinary hormone test, stool test, hair tissue mineral analysis test, you name the test, he did it. But he started hearing gurus say things he knew not to be true and he started questioning the supplements. [6:14] Bryan asked himself why he was running expensive tests if he didn't know their scientific validity. The scientific literature is not friendly to these biomarkers and tests. He compares it to testing your home for radon with a bad test. Bryan is trying to raise the bar in the industry for better practitioners and healthier patients for less money, and being more evidence-based. [8:10] Bryan and his wife run their business while trying to raise the bar in the industry as much as they can. Sachin loves that they are holding the entire industry to a higher standard. You have to feel solid on the tests you order for people. The foundation of our business is the outcomes we produce. [9:24] Sachin asks, “How do I create a program that is independent of the labs, that produces results every single time that has tons of evidence and ancient wisdom wrapped up into it, and common sense wrapped up into it, and develop a lifestyle-design program that isn't dependent on lab testing?” Sachin includes Oura rings for his patients so they can measure their progress. [10:18] Bryan's view is that a lab test should not give you any new insights into the person, it should just confirm what you already believe to be true. That means going back to your clinical skills, history-taking, symptom questionnaire, and physical exam. Bryan's not opposed to any test that he knows of, but a test is not a fishing expedition, it's confirmation of a suspected issue. [11:28] For example, if a patient has hypoglycemic symptoms, there's probably something going on. Testing blood glucose and A1C gathers hard data and allows for interventions and tracking progress. If someone has hypothyroid symptoms, run a complete thyroid panel and see where the defect is. [12:35] Blood chemistry is one of Bryan's passions. Standard blood chemistry is one of the most studied labs around the world. It's been scientifically validated over and over. It's inexpensive for what you get, if you know what you're doing, have good reference markers, and are up to date on the modern literature on these markers. [14:02] When you look at the literature on Albumin, old markers have new reasons they might be high or low that have implications for us as practitioners. If you take old tests and combine them with updated research on the markers, they can tell you as a clinician far more than you were using them for in the past. [14:47] Bryan cites recent research linking high HDL with leaky gut. A high HDL may indicate testing for intestinal permeability of lipopolysaccharides to confirm. There is updated research on many old markers. Some inoculations are indicated from existing markers. There are new calculations for fatty liver. Some markers are useless and don't need to be run. [17:55] Bryan notes that with too much data, it's hard for practitioners to know what to work on first. Go back to the fundamentals and the basics that you have evidence that they improve people. People are suffering and practitioners are suffering with inaccurate tests. Patients are spending on tests unnecessarily. Some tests just give patients something new to worry about. [21:50] Bryan does not see people being plain honest about the industry. Practitioners do the best they can and show confidence about it but they don't know if the second test will show improvement over the first test. [23:46] Bryan tells more about HDL. If triglycerides are low, HDL tends to be high, lymphocytes tend to be high and neutrophils in women tend to decrease. Potassium tends to high normal and sodium tends to low normal, because of low cortisol and aldosterone. Females with this pattern have autoimmunity and get dizzy when they stand up. Bryan looks hard at HDL. [24:51] Bryan found one paper years ago that included in the data tape but did not report, data that people that had a higher HDL also had a higher incidence of cancer. There is an HDL immunological component. Bryan has been seeing HDL higher than LDL in the past five years more than ever before. [24:45] Bryan talks about optimal functional ranges and shares a story. If you don't have a reference, don't speak of an optimal range. Bryan has stacks of references of ranges for various markers and he has the papers about them and how he came up with the ranges. [28:06] The literature on GGT very clearly says high normal levels, in the upper 20s or 30s, are more accurate as a pathophysiology marker than CRP, some metrics like blood pressure, or A1C. GGT is a robust marker of pathology, xenobiotic exposure, and hepatic glutathione deficiency. It's a marker to justify your use of n-acetylcysteine. [29:51] Pyroglutamic acid is lower in autoimmune patients than in healthy patients. Low bilirubin is a marker of fat-soluble oxidative stress. Papers that Bryan read recently show a highly increased risk of mortality for bilirubin levels below .4. This points to fat-soluble oxidative stress and may call for support from fat-soluble anti-oxidants, Co-Q 10 and Vitamin E and/or GGT. [31:28] Bryan refers to water-soluble glutathione. N-acetylcysteine can lower High-normal GGT. These are old markers. Bryn mentions there are also loads of novel and new markers. [32:13] What about mold? Bryan waits for the bandwagon to turn around and come back before hopping on. He doesn't want to give the newest supplement only to find it causes cancer. Mold is insidious. People are hyper-stressed about mold. A few years ago, people were stressed about candida and then heavy metals. Bryan doesn't run a blood chemistry for mold. [35:41] High albumin is a dehydration marker. Low albumin is an inflammation marker. A1C and C-peptide are insulin markers. If fasting glucose is normal with high A1C, give a C-peptide test. Globulin is a marker of all globulins. IGG antibodies are the greatest contributor to serum globulin. To make globulin, tryptophan is required. High globulin is an autoimmunity marker. [38:32] If a woman is taking exogenous estrogen (birth control, hormone replacement) that will drive up sex hormone-binding globulin. These women may have mild depression because of a relative tryptophan deficiency. Try tryptophan. Bryan discusses protein electrophoresis, CBC, and other tests. [40:02] Iron fluctuates by within-person variability. Bryan talks about homocysteine. It is suggested to have a within-person variance of about 8% of 10 Mol/L. About 95% of people will have within +/- 2 standard deviations of that 8% variance. The results of a year's worth of monthly homocysteine tests might be as high as 11.2 mol/L and as low as 8.4. [41:50] Iron has a 32% within-person variance. If iron is all over the place, so will serum iron. Don't consider iron overload protocol unless a reading is high again in 30 days. A standard iron test would be, iron, ferritin, and TIBC. Some use transferrin instead of TIBC. Ferritin has a variance of around 20%. Iron has a variance of upwards of 32%. TIBC has a low variance. [43:19] When TIBC goes up, the body is looking for more iron. This may be because of a bacterial infection. TIBC is an important marker. The soluble transferrin receptor is a receptor for iron on transferrin. If there are no iron receptors on transferrin, the body is low on iron but doesn't want any, because it's fighting off a bacterial infection that thrives on iron. Clear it up. [48:47] Bryan believes the bacteria appear first in a leaky gut situation. He describes how they wake up without proliferating into sepsis. That's where the HDL test comes in. Bryan doesn't differentiate between a gut protocol and a non-gut immune protocol. Any botanical gets absorbed in the gut. Fibers and most minerals don't get absorbed. [53:46] Bryan lists classifications of tests he recommends not using, and he explains why: Organic acid tests, salivary cortisol tests (unless you run it serially a few times in a week for patterns), hair tissue mineral analysis tests, and stool tests (unless you suspect a raging infection). Bryan cites incorrect medical treatments of past decades. [1:04:45] Bryan started his career with more liberal and aggressive protocols. He is conservative now. He works with blood chemistry, evidence-based supplements, and the mental-emotional components and how they affect physiology. Not running all these labs and not going crazy about the best diet has been a huge stress reliever for Bryan. [1:05:58] About CGM. Sometimes more data can cause anxiety, especially when used by people without diabetes. Bryan is interested in what the counterregulatory hormones are doing. If someone has hyperglycemia, is it because they have no insulin, or too much insulin and it's not working? [1:07:56] Why do you have high glucose? Is it because you're not making enough insulin, insulin's late to the party, or do you have hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance? That's two different patients and protocols. [1:08:23] There is also hyper insulin sensitivity. Bryan believes that is caused by too much GLP-1. These patients have totally normal glucose but they're having a hyper insulin response with insulin receptors that are more sensitive. That is not normal physiology. The only thing CGMs focus on is the easy one, glucose. Bryan has never recommended one to a client. [1:08:38] Sleep trackers were part of a study. They put two groups of sleepers in a room with a clock showing the wrong time. Some people had a great night's sleep but they thought they had a restricted sleep. They were asked to do math problems and they did poorly. They thought they were exhausted after eight hours of sleep. [1:10:12] The other sleep group was interrupted after four hours of sleep but the clock showed they had slept eight hours and they believed it. They reported feeling wonderful. They did well on the math problems. The problem with gadgets is that a little information is good but we can sometimes get taken too far. Use tools as they are defined and don't take them too far. [1:11:39] Sachin commits to give up personal tech devices for a week and see the results. Bryan says one of the biggest issues we have right now is that we are hyper-focused on ourselves and no longer focused on life and our community. In the past, who you were was who you were to the community. It was your purpose in the community. [1:12:43] Now we look so much within ourselves, we don't look out anymore. Nobody's focused on anybody else anymore. Bryan thinks that one of the biggest health issues we have is people running around lacking purpose, lacking knowing who they are and lacking connections to other people. Bryan thinks it's showing up in neurotransmitters and hormone issues. [1:13:54] Sachin is a student for life, like Bryan, willing to learn and adapt and experiment. He will let Bryan know in a week how the tech fast goes. The Oura ring will sit on his desk for a week. [1:14:37] What is Bryan's take on AI in blood chemistry? He thinks it has fantastic potential. His fear is that people don't like to think. Thinking is hormetic but we just want a protocol. The literature about AI in interpreting blood chemistry is good. It does what we are trying to do mentally and manually with the numbers. Bryan's concern is we will forget how to observe. [1:16:05] Bryan has experience with AI and labs. He looks at the lab first and draws his conclusions without bias before looking at the AI interpretation. Sachin agrees. No one can do your pushups for you. [1:17:09] Bryan and his wife have their business at MetabolicFitnessPro.com. They are trying to raise the bar. They are Christian. In a world of dishonesty, they run with humility and integrity and they hope that everything they do emanates from there. They have a number of courses people can get to improve what they do in their practice, be successful, and feel good about it. [1:18:47] Bryan says he doesn't think of himself as smart; when you're dumb, you keep trying to be smart. He's always trying to impress his wife, who doesn't impress easily. They are working on creating a lab with some pretty cool markers that aren't on standard labs but the evidence suggests they should be. They teach a course in blood chemistry analysis. [1:20:04] Sachin thanks Dr. Bryan Walsh for this enlightening conversation. Sachin invites Bryan to return for further discussions, to speak at Sachin's events, and to offer mentorships.

I'm really excited we are a fully remote organization. It's why I get to do the work I do from Hawaii. It does mean I have really early mornings, so be aware of what you're signing up for, but I get to work fully remote. In supporting fully remote organizations, we have to be incredibly intentional about the culture and the way we work. Diana Brown, Head of People, Eco We're Only Human -- Episode 163 Working remote. It's a polarizing topic overall, but perhaps even more so when it comes to HR positions. Should HR be in the office, or is it okay if People professionals work remotely? In this episode, Ben talks with Diana Brown of Eco about how she and her team manage the remote/distributed aspects of creating a connected, employee-focused culture through intentional design, communications, and more.

Transcript: Joe Krebs 0:10 Agile FM radio for the Agile community, www agile.fm. Thank you for tuning in to another episode of Agile FM today, I have a guest here with me. Probably, I would say probably everybody in the Agile community knows probably everybody has a book. In their hands. Every facilitator has a book into hands from Keith McCandless from the liberating structures is what is today with me. And we're going to talk about liberating structures in the book. But we also want to talk about liberating structures beyond the book. But before we get started, welcome to the podcast Keith.Keith McCandless 0:53 Thanks, Joe. Excited to be here.Joe Krebs 0:55 That is awesome. Yeah, I have to say this book was written also by Henry Lipmanowicz . So this co authored this book, anybody knows the surprising power of liberating structures? I think you guys have sold so many books. I think you're in direct competition with Harry Potter. Is that?Keith McCandless 1:16 You? I like your dreaminess, Joe. There are very few books. I mean, yeah, it's sold. Well, it has it has in a in an era when people I'm not sure they read books anymore. ButJoe Krebs 1:30 yeah, that was 2014. And the reason I'm saying that is like everywhere I go, when I talk to people, not only the word liberating structures, everybody has an immediate reaction to it positive, obviously. But also people actually have the book and they're using the liberating structures. And as obviously, that was the that was the intent. So first and foremost, thank you for making these 33 patterns available to the community. I think they really changed the way of how people like Scrum Masters agile culture is probably listening to an episode here on agile FM. But actually more than that facilitators around the world in any kind of way, or shape doesn't have to be agile would really benefit from that. So thanks for doing this guys. Very good work.Keith McCandless 2:18 You're You're welcome. And I love it that you use the word patterns. Because they're, they're simpler than a process. And they're more fun than an icebreaker. Yes, right. So what is that? Where did they even come from? Like, I think that's partly why they've spread a bit is they? They're not cumbersome, like a process. But they're as much serious fun as you can have. So that was a hope we had, although I've got to say the spread of the work? Well, first and foremost started with Agile people. It really did. First ones to catch on to it, and it keeps spreading,Joe Krebs 3:09 keep spreading, keep spreading. Yeah, I'm not I'm not surprised somebody from the Agile community that started they are really to catch on, right? Because of obviously autonomous teams, and how do we get creative ideas out on teams? So it's, I think it's a great, great connection, I want to take you just for a moment here to the time before 2014, before you guys released the book, obviously, you have been in this field of learning and education and facilitation for decades right? So how did this all if you just want to take the listeners here through the journey of you know, obviously we're holding a book in their hands, but why publishing it? And what was what was the what was the trigger of saying like, let's let's write about this? And more importantly, why 33?Keith McCandless 3:59 Yeah. Well, two things were going on. I was working in organizations, as a consultant, and trying to solve problems that weren't being solved. And they were kind of fundamental things. Seemingly, we hit limits to the way to the way everybody organized. And partly it was the relationship between the people doing the work their managers and their bosses and their executives is a fundamental limit. And so I had a variety of clients. And when I met Henry, we started to share clients and develop field work to address really the limits of what current organizing theory and practice was. Right and this was 20 years ago. So we did 10 years of work in the field before we published, of testing these things, trying to get them as simple the minimum specified in each one that we could. And we really didn't know, we were doing research for a book. The only reason there's a book is our clients told us, you've got to kept telling us, you've got to write it, you got to write it down. Yeah. And so there were a bunch of flimsy work, workbooks, in different languages were working internationally. And so we had a flimsy workbook. Number one in Brazil, one of the places we started, and then that was Portuguese. And then there was a Spanish one, and then there was a French one. And so the need the clients asking for, like, write it down, and our, whatever perfectionist tendencies we had. We didn't like the quality of the stuff we were doing, we had to slowly get rid of all of the pieces that weren't critical to making the structures work. And eventually, that resulted in in us finding a good editor. And neither of us are natural mean, we had to work on the writing part. But it got published. Yeah.Joe Krebs 6:27 We are very happy about this. When I saw the, when I saw the book, obviously, when it was published back then, there was this one moment I had, and, you know, take it down a story of mine quick, where I knew the book was extremely powerful. Because until the book was published, I used in my own trainings and working with clients that there was this one time, it's like, you know, where I moved groups from one flip chart to the next flip chart, and they collaborated this way. And there was always an interesting activity of people were like, it took me a little time to explain it, and people got into it. But then the energy level in the room increased significantly every time I did this. And one time, there was a group of executives and those executives, they were stunned. They were like, wow, what is happening? This is so engaging. And when I saw your book, it was the shift and share. I you know, I didn't had a name. And when I saw that, I was like, this is powerful. I need to know the other 32. Because I knew there was so much power in so how did you guys decide on on those 33? What is that? Were you really? I mean, I could imagine at that time, he could have said it could have been 34? It could have been 35? Why did you draw the line? Did you feel like this was enough of a catalog to say let's go live?Keith McCandless 7:47 Well, it represents the repertoire of our, of our joint practice. So those were things that we regularly used. And we're confident anybody could generate, surprisingly reliable results. So reliably, you're gonna get delightful surprises, like that group of leaders who are going like, where did this energy come from? . Well, well, that happens every time with every each of those 33 There will be a, a surprising amount of momentum and insight and action generated. And so those were the ones we were confident about that addressed the concerns of I'm gonna say mostly big organizations that operated across borders. And once we published realized, Oh, my, there's lots of other domains and contexts in which people are operating that they could use the same approaches. But the limits to the repertoire and our decisions about it was what did we know how to do? And what did we actually feel test to the point where it could reliably surprise? .Keith McCandless 9:15 that was kind of the test, the other one Joe, that we mentioned a little bit earlier is Is it close to being simple enough? Easy to learn that after one experience that maybe someone else led as a facilitator or an Agile coach or a scrum master, if they didn't let it once? Could somebody in that group who never thought of themselves in that way, as a facilitator, could pick it up and use it in their local context? Right, so if that didn't if that wasn't possible, it started to drop off the list of the repertoire.Joe Krebs 9:57 Yeah, yeah, definitely. It's a it's very powerful. and it makes it so universally applicable, right? Because it is something that is not only something specific for financial facilitation, let's say in a financial sector or in something else, it's something for everyone right to be shared and across the board. That's, that is super insightful. This journey doesn't end there. Right after those 33 Only because the book is published, the movement is continuing. And I do want to say before we explore some of those techniques, somebody who is possibly I cannot even imagine this but not familiar with liberating structures. Gone are the days where people sit around the table and somebody flips PowerPoint slides. Right? So I think that is that is the idea behind this, like, how can we survive in a creative, innovative world that changes frequently without sourcing the the energy and the opinions for many people at the same time. So I think what you guys are doing has a real price tag next to it for organizations.Keith McCandless 11:04 If only if only Joe, if only those presentations were were done with if only everybody's intelligence was unleashed, if your own and then you made it, everything you did unleashed everybody else's around you. If only that was true. That's not my experience. And so there's a lot more to do. Yeah. And I think the pandemic opens some doors for people, but also closed quite a few. In regard to how open can we make this? How flexible can we be about the future so that all of the worry about the stability of the organization can either close doors or open doors. And I've seen more extreme versions of both over the last few years, more openness to including every voice in shaping what happens next. That's basically what liberating structures do they make it practical, to literally include every voice in shaping your next step? And that's scares the hell out of some people. And and it's new territory. So I'm, I know that we need to do it like you I feel the passion for doing it now and everybody should be doing and why aren't they doing it? I feel that but I also know it's a it's a transition that's going to take take a while, a while longer than I want to wait. ButJoe Krebs 12:52 what's interesting about the leader example, some, you know, I mentioned earlier, I've noticed with liberating structures is that leaders and executives, they like the energy, the liberating structures are producing, but they're not part of the activity itself, which is very often interesting, right? So they're more like bystanders or observers or they, they, you know, they they support liberating structures, obviously, or not, you know, maybe not even know about. Okay, great resolves the teams are producing with these techniques, but they're not part of it. So I myself, like in a training environment, I do have the opportunity to bring them in through a training course. But I'm not sure how many, you know, facilitations take place on leadership. Now, I do have to say my view is agile. So maybe outside of the Agile space, there is more of that. But I that's that's one of the shortcomings I have seen that it hasn't really broken through the to the entire organization is more limited to the teams. Is that something you you observe as well.Keith McCandless 13:55 But well, I'm not always the nicest person. Usually I try. And I don't blame leaders for the situation. But they've gotten themselves the way organizing has been taught and learned. They're busy people, they want things simplified. And so when I'm not nice, we will have just and I often work with leadership groups. And the first step is always let's get all the other people that we possibly can that usually are not in the strategic planning session. Let's say that's what it is. And we will have just mapped I know this is audio but I'm going to move my hands anyway. On the Eco cycle, the whole portfolio of activities and maybe even the relation the strategic relationships, where are they in a birth maturity? Great of this pretty, you know, you got to get that relationship creatively destroyed or or nascent, you know, just just stating not formed yet. We've got the whole thing up there. And we may also have done a critical uncertainties where we look at the four surprisingly, different futures. And then we look again at this portfolio and where all where we are strategically. And I will, I have never been in a situation where that wasn't very new information for all the organizational leaders for the first time, they've seen where all their stuff is. And they see that the the future operating environments for the evolution or adaptability of those things? They haven't really thought about it. Yeah, how are we going to operate our portfolio. In a future that's not predictable, but you know, within a range, it's not predictable. And so because they've been isolated from all the work and where all the work is done, that's a confusing moment. And what I like to do is bring them all in front of the visual chart, you know, here's the Eco cycle, and here's the critical uncertainties we face and go, you knew that right? And, like, I, and they'll kind of look through the site or look down, and, you know, we're just all have a good laugh. Because that's, that's something that arises out of doing the work, and they've never had the opportunity to do the work, because they haven't included everybody. And they don't know how, yeah, as. And so for me, the perspective over time, is we're learning how to include more voices to shape the future in a very volatile. environment. And that's gonna, you know, I wish we all knew how to do that already. But we're, we don't, and we're learning how to do it. And I include myself in there, how do you do that in a way that it gets repeated by everybody in the organization continuously. So that the goals and strategies are being adapted.Joe Krebs 17:30 This must be an interesting finding for you, like just based on your example, right? When you do work with a leadership team, and in terms of trust, right, if somebody does not know that, right, and the technique, eco cycle, why brought this to surface, and all of a sudden is like, this is like a vulnerable point for for a person, or as a group, right. But each individual, it requires a lot of trust, it's like, I did not know that we did not know that as a group. So on a leadership that shakes things up a little bit for for the group, right? It's like, there's a lot of things we do not know, when we would have gone down that path. And, you know, so that must be a very powerful moment to to be in for you as a facilitator.Keith McCandless 18:15 Well, I hope, you know, when you're a consultant, you're there for a while you develop trust with the client, and I do my best to be loving and provocative. At the same time, and that's support for the leader. Ah, they need it. They needed that's when they needed the most and that it's just too easy to blame them for something that isn't happening. But structurally, because attention to the way in which we work, the PowerPoint presentation, the I'm the boss, update me, tell me what I want to know about what's happening, that doesn't work, brainstorming, let's get a few people who are smart and have them figured out those or, or just open it up and have anybody, you know, fight it out over what it should be. Those all generate disappointing results. So until liberating structures are routinely routinely used. And the first people I've seen it, make it sort of routine are Scrum Masters, you know, in with their teams, they have some autonomy over there teams, they can put in regular practice some of the structures that make it possible to some of the time, shape next steps with every voice. Yeah,Joe Krebs 19:42 so it's interesting, right? And some of those 33 patterns are I would call them in not in a in a powerful way, but just in terms of executing them like a 1,2,4,all relatively brief, quick, powerful technique. I use it all the time. But some others like the Eco cycle, or the open space, you know, conversation, these are longer or more elaborate in terms of time commitment, right? It's still the same powerful tool. But it's interesting also, that these liberating structures are tied together, they're not like a single thing where you can use them together can build like a strategy of facilitation, depending on your needs. So so they defined together so it's for everybody who's, again, not familiar with this work is some of those techniques are timewise very brief, like my shifting share too the brief, or it could be a brief technique. But some are, like open space could be three days. SoKeith McCandless 20:43 yeah. The good news is that the 33, and the ones developed since we wrote the book, share a DNA. So there's five design elements that are part of every one. So once you learn a few of them, you understand a micro structure that distributes control, to everybody, to the people closest to the work. So once you've, you have a handful in your personal repertoire, the rest aren't that complicated. And even the most like the ones you mentioned, that take longer, eco cycle, if you've seen somebody use it, it's pretty easy to copy what they've done. So I tell new users, new people who are going to be introducing them, just know, don't get nervous, but the people you work with, they'll copy exactly what you do. So don't screw up. They don't, you know, because that's what they know its power, it's gonna be powerful. It's gonna be you're gonna get a new view, let's say it's eco cycle, you're gonna get a fresh dynamic view of where all of your activities all of your could be your, your products, or your, you know, all of the software you're developing, which which ones are, are already productive, which ones are just ideas, gestating what which ones do you need to put an end to because they're stale in there. So know that it will be powerful, and do your best when you try them? To do a good job with them. And some I can say that and then say they're also forgiving, right? You read the book and started doing 1,2,4 All? All probably Are you already did shift and share? Yeah. Now you had a little more detail maybe about something about how it could be done. And you just did it? Yep. So I recommend once you have a few under your belt, one of the things I think we did, added to the world was the the micro structure, what is the structure of distributed control? What are the five design elements and the fact that the whole repertoire shares that makes them different than individual methods that you can tap makes them a repertory interrelated repertoire that helps you solve complex problems? Yeah.Joe Krebs 23:29 Yeah. So you mentioned earlier that the time to the release of the book, there was like this 10 year roughly time period where you guys, you know, filtered the material selected and defined, and most importantly, wrote about it. Now, since the release. There's another 10 year period right now, almost what we're looking at a similar time period. And you already mentioned, there are some liberating structures. They came after the book was published. So they are currently in the application and the testing, I don't know what kind of terms you guys are using, but basically in the field and being applied. And basically some of them will make the next book the website, whatever is in the, in the making a two things that stood out like one of them is Mad Tea. Right? I think that was one. So just to give the listeners here, a little bit of sense, this is one that goes beyond the 33 that is already some field tested right now. There's people that can engage with you in a Slack community, submit their own liberating structures, I myself will probably submit something to you guys, I have an idea. And there is the strategy not working and not with a KNOT. Tell us a little bit about maybe this one. I think it relates to Scrum Masters and we just mentioned how Scrum Masters relate very well to the liberating structures. So this might be a really good one beyond the book. Tell us a little bit about the strategy knot working and how could this be useful for Scrum Masters and agile coaches?Keith McCandless 25:06 Yeah, so in this 10 year period, in between one thing, one liberating structure that really appealed to Scrum Masters was called purpose to purpose to practice. And there's five elements, and it's very much related to any project. So for, for me, if I have people proposing things to do that, or projects, I need them to answer the five questions and purpose to practice. So that's purpose, principles, participants, structure, and then what are you going to do practice? And if they can articulate that? Okay. You've thought it through? That's good. That's perfect for a project. But one of the limits was, okay, well, what about how all the projects fit together? What about the larger strategic context in which you're operating? Which is bigger than, and so strategy knot working? Includes it's kind of like a purpose to practice where different liberating structures are tapped. It also starts with purpose, but immediately goes to principles, like what are all the things we've learned from practice that we must never do again? Or always do? And then there's another second section that's different about wicked questions. What's the impossible truths? What two things are so true about the complex situation we face? That are undeniable, but we have to address both of them to make progress. Like how can we be an integrated organization and have autonomy in each part? How can we be a whole and a part? It's both integrated and autonomous? Oh, wow. And any strategy that you can get autonomy and integrated integration, that's a really that's a strategy is, is well worth it. And so the strategy knot working isn't a lot more elaborate, detailed way of formulating strategy beyond projects. And that became clear in the 10 year period in between. And so far, we've been doing in LS slack. And we've been doing prototyping, different people in very different domains have been trying it out. And there's some real challenging challenges to making that simple enough. So it hasn't. It's progressed, a lot of people are using it now. But it's not close to being in the repertoire in the next book. But it's well, it's worth worth it. But it doesn't fit my my, the need for easily copied by a new user.Joe Krebs 28:20 Yeah. But there are others in in in the field right now as well. So this is not only one right. So there are several things going on right now. So yeah, you're back into selection process, like which one would make good candidate for? For the next, for the next book, I think you said which was kind of a reveal,Keith McCandless 28:39 not promising. Next book. As an author, I think, you know, you don't want to make promises, because books are hard. Books are hard.Joe Krebs 28:51 How did because your book release was 2014, before the pandemic. And obviously, that was not something you guys could have foreseen. That was coming in 2019? Was it 2019? And how did that change? The liberating structures like movement or your view on the liberating structures? Because I mean, there were lots of facilitators and trainers were looking at this. It's like, well, usually I will do a 1,2,4,all in my training right now. But now, how do I do this online? Or how do I work with a class? It's distributed and remote, and creativity sparked everywhere left and right, which is great. But how do you feel about that? And what were the insights like very specific to the pandemic and the impact on the liberating structures?Keith McCandless 29:41 Well, I'm going to mention two things. One is the very first word when Henry and I felt we needed to prove liberating structures were productive was on superbugs and hospitals. I don't know if you know that but we we really hard problem But the answers needed to come in a distributed way from everyone. There were there were not single answers, we knew a few things that were effective. But really, you had to include every voice to solve the problem. And we're able to do great things. So the pandemic, first of all, was, Oh, my liberating structures are a great fit. We need distributed solutions, and didn't really get them for a variety of reasons. So that was hard. But within a month, I'd say on primarily on Slack, but the global liberating structures community, we who are agile folks, but academic, you name it, um, everybody was in there. The entire repertoire was converted to online, functional online, you know, things that could work that were not face to face that were great. Mostly zoom, but multiple platforms, everybody was trying things and sharing their information. And, and so for me, it was breathtaking to see what a large, diverse community with loose connections to one another very loose, could instantly adapt the whole repertoire. I mean, 98% of the repertoire got adapted. And then the other big change the pandemic, because it was online all of a sudden accessibility like, Okay, you're talking about, including every voice? Hmm. Well, a lot more voices could show up and a lot more attention to accessibility. The online platforms got refined, well, what do you mean, what if people can't hear? What if they can't see what if all of these things deepened? The degree to which liberating structures could include all or at least many more voices in shaping what happens next? So that was it opened new communities, and it opened the depth of what, including all voices means for me? Yeah, at same time in the US, you're in the US, like, social justice became pretty big deal. So people who have four generation has been excluded. Were showing up. We could reach them there, they could reach us more easily. So it's a frothy, exciting mix, Joe, of things that happened, and I'm just touching on a couple. And probably the last thing is the lot losses associated with the pandemic, what did you lose as a result of the pandemic? And so quite a bit more sensitivity to attention to and sensitivity to what has been lost? And how people can show up when they're experiencing some amount of grief or, or going through a transition? And so how do you do that and get the work? How do you attend to people's basic needs? And get some things done? Yeah. So that's a huge set of insights associated with that. So that's more than an Atmore. It was a good question. So I gave you a rambling answer.Joe Krebs 33:39 Surprising power, right?Keith McCandless 33:42 It's, I think I'm the first one surprised every time. Yeah, I think. But yeah, good.Joe Krebs 33:50 So the thing is, I the reason I was asking like in the book, there's a lot of photography, from like actual events, examples on the website liberating structures, you see an actual photograph of the the liberating structure in action. And they are in person, right. So when you see even on the photos, you get the energy. And sometimes there is not a direct translation, but a work around, or it might work or with a different tool. And the creativity that came out of the community, as you said, is obviously fantastic to you know, to take the book and say like, Hey, this works in person, but now we have ways of doing this online. This is really, there wasn't really a very good conversation here Keith that I really really loved. Talking about liberating structures with you and thankful you took the time. We talked a little bit about the past. We talked a little bit about the book. And most importantly, we talked a little bit about the future of what's happening next people can get in touch with you through liberatingstructures.com If they want to submit or go to that slack channel and you know we talked about and yeah, I just I think Everybody's hungry for part two. And there's more to come. And I think, you know, the community can take more. No worries.Keith McCandless 35:10 Well, I've got to tell you, I'm waiting. I'm putting on my schedule. When When will Joe send his idea for the new liberating structure? Soon? Yeah. Yeah. No, it'sJoe Krebs 35:27 it's an open invitation for submitting ideas. I did not know. So I will take advantage of that and share something and and see if it's, if it's something that is applicable to a broader domain.Keith McCandless 35:41 Yeah. Good. Thank you. Yeah. And I appreciate the invitation to join you on the Convo Yeah, delightful, and it's nice to get to know you better.Joe Krebs 35:53 Thank you for listening to Agile FM, the radio for the Agile community.

Hay que los llama híbridos “ligeros”; otros híbridos “suaves”; también “micro-híbridos”; las marcas, muchas veces “Mild Hybrid” que suena mejor; algunos la llaman híbrido “quiero y no puedo”; otros dicen que son un truco para conseguir una buena “pegatina” sin complicarse; y los hay sin pelos en la lengua que dicen que son un timo. ¿Son un timo o funcionan? Te lo vamos a contar y ¿qué os parece si este video los comenzamos por el final, por la conclusión? ¡Allá vamos! ¡La mayoría de estos “Mild Hybrid” son en cierto modo un timo! Puedo ser menos drástico: Es una tecnología que supone más ventajas para las marcas que para los consumidores… Es mi opinión, la de muchos periodistas, la de muchos técnicos, expertos y asociaciones de consumidores. También os adelanto que esta “Micro Hibridación” en algunos casos y a algunos motores les sienta bien. Por mucho que no te gusten los híbridos de ningún tipo y por mucho que a un “ingenierillo” como es mi caso no le gusten de entrada los coches con dos tipos de energía… la hibridación es una idea genial. ¿Por qué? Los volvemos a explicar: Vas a poder recuperar gran parte de la energía que pierdes en la frenadas… Además, desde el punto de vista deportivo, ayuda al motor térmico, como pasa en la F1 y en resistencia, permite convertir coche de solo propulsión trasera en tracción total. -HEV, Hybrid Electric Vehicle o híbridos convencionales. No se enchufa, pero tienen una batería relativamente grande y el coche, aunque sea a baja velocidad y por cortos plazos de tiempo o espacio, puede ser movido por el motor o motores eléctricos. -PHEV: Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle o Vehículo Híbrido Eléctrico Enchufable. Son híbridos que puedes enchufar y con baterías mayores que le permiten hacer entre 50 y a veces incluso 100 km, depende del ritmo, solo en modo eléctrico. Probablemente sean ya los más habituales y para mí los más interesantes. -E-REV: Extended Range Electric Vehicle o Vehículo Eléctrico de Autonomía Extendida. Para mí son híbridos “al revés”, pues el motor térmico no mueve el coche, sino que recarga la batería. Llamarlos “eléctricos” me parece un error y salvo excepciones, como el Nissan Note e-Power, en Japón, no han tenido gran éxito. -MHEV: Mild-hybrid Electric Vehicle o Vehículo Microhíbrido Eléctrico. Los que nos ocupan, con batería pequeñas, de menor voltaje e incapaces por sí solas de mover al coche. Los fabricantes de coches han encontrado una forma de homologar las emisiones y consumo de sus modelos a fin de cumplir el límite fijado por la Unión Europea (UE), pero con coches que en muchas ocasiones consumen más que los modelos térmicos equivalentes. Y es que si estás pensando que el sistema micro híbrido sirve para homologar como híbridos a coches pequeños y baratos… te estás equivocando. Precisamente esta tecnología permite convertir en “ecológicos” a coches que no lo son en absoluto. La OCU española hizo un estudio y comparó tres modelos de este tipo con SUV convencionales. Hablo por ejemplo del Audi Q8 50 TDi con diésel de 3.0 litros y 286 CV de potencia, del Mercedes-Benz CLS 350 Coupé con motor gasolina de 299 CV a los que se suman 14 CV del sistema EQ Boost y del Range Rover Evoque P300 un SUV que dispone de un propulsor gasolina de 300 CV. La comparación fue con dos SUV convencionales un Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi de 115 CV y un Dacia Sandero 1.0 gasolina de 75 CV, ambos con etiqueta C, en España, la de los modelos nuevos más contaminantes. Pero si comparas los consumos y las emisiones… ¡en algunos casos los modelos convencionales y modestos contaminan y consumen la mitad!... Algo pasa aquí, ¿no os parece? Y solo con este, accedes a una forma de conseguir homologaciones y ventajas de coche “ecológico” cuando no siempre lo es o lo es menos que otros. Esta simplificación conlleva una ventaja indiscutible, puedes convertir casi cualquier coche en híbrido y, sobre todo, la mayor ventaja para el fabricante es un: menor coste. Como decía, hay “Mild Hybrid” a los que les sienta bien el sistema, como algunos Suzuki que he probado, porque el motor eléctrico ayuda al motor, sobre todo cuando es gasolina, en los momentos más difíciles, como a bajo régimen. Os recuerdo que algunos motores ECO, de ciclo Miller, tiene pocos bajos. Pero en general la existencia de este modelo se debe más a una legislación bajo mi punto de vista muy deficiente, que a verdaderos resultados de interés para el consumidor. Porque para el fabricante, en muchos casos, es un verdadero “chollo”… pero el cliente obtiene una etiqueta ECO por poco dinero. Coche del día. Os voy a dar una exclusiva. Antes os comento cual es el coche del día: El BMW Z4 M40i, un coche con el que me he hecho cerca de 3.000 km estos días. Primero os comento cómo va el coche… y luego el motivo de haberlo probado tan a fondo.

Davide Ferrario's UMBERTO ECO: A LIBRARY OF THE WORLD is a documentary immersion into all things Eco. His sublimely intimate film takes us on a tour of Umberto Eco's private library, guided by the author himself. Combining new footage with material he shot with Eco in 2015 for a video installation for the Venice Biennale, Ferrario documents this incredible collection and the man who amassed it. From the precious section of the original seventeenth-century books to the shelves dedicated to the 'literary fools' who pay to be published, passing through the mystery about Shakespeare's identity, the film retraces and illustrates the main obsessions of Umberto Eco, which underlie all his literary production, fiction and otherwise. As Eco leads us among the more than 50,000 volumes and his family reflects on his legacy, we also gain insight into the library of the mind of this vastly prolific and original thinker. UMBERTO ECO: A LIBRARY OF THE WORLD director Davide Ferrario joins us for a lively conversation on how he approached his humble and warm-hearted subject, enlisting Umberto's family, Renate, Stefano and Carlotta, into this joyful collaboration and how important he felt it was to make Umberto's sonorous collection of literature the other “character” in this exhilarating ode to Umberto Eco.
