A continuous source of nutritious food is essential for long-duration exploration missions, and the typical pre-packaged astronaut diet will need to be supplemented by fresh foods produced in space. Researchers at NASA have been testing a plant growth unit on the International Space Station known as Veggie and have successfully grown a variety of leafy greens. Veg-05, the next step in that work, focuses on growing red dwarf tomatoes! Today on the show, Beth is joined by NASA Life Sciences project scientist and VEG-05 principal investigator Dr. Gioia Massa. She and her team are testing tomatoes, looking at the impacts of light spectrum on how well the crop grows, how delicious and nutritious the tomatoes are, and the microbial activity on the fruit and plants! The Veg-05 experiment will help provide valuable data for future space exploration, and examines the overall effect of growing, tending, and eating crops on crew behavioral health. There's lots to learn in this episode of Casual Space Podcast with Dr. Gioia Massa! Oh, and check out this competition for kids to create the next Veggie Mission patch! https://fairchildgarden.org/science-and-education/learn/the-fairchild-challenge/national-challenge-main-page-nasa-patch/ A great article from NASA highlighting the details regarding the various experiments launching to the International Space Station on the SpaceX CRS-26 mission: https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/news/spacex-26-science-highlights/ About Gioia Massa – Project Scientist, Kennedy Space Center… in her own words: “When I was 12, I decided I wanted to grow plants in space. It only took, well, a while to get there, but it was an interesting journey. I have always liked plants – both my mother and grandmother taught me to love gardening. As a kid, however, I was horse-crazy, and when I had the opportunity to take an agriculture class in 7th grade and join the horse judging team in FFA, I was thrilled. Well, I was an awful judge of horses – I just picked the pretty ones with nice manners, and I had no sense of good form. Happily, I also tried horticulture judging and plant identification, and I loved it. I was lucky enough that my agriculture teacher was selected to participate in a workshop at KSC and EPCOT center called “energize the green machine”; it was all about NASA's research toward growing food in space. He captured 40 hours of video on space plant growth and I sat mesmerized throughout. I was hooked. And I persisted, doing hydroponic projects in high school (DeLand, FL) and college (Cornell), working in plant labs, participating in the Space Life Sciences Training Program at KSC (both as a student and as a counselor), going to graduate school (Penn State) to study plant responses to gravity, participating in a student shuttle flight experiment, doing a postdoc on bioregenerative food production (Purdue) in advanced life support systems, and spending way too much time in rooms with strange purple lights. A few stubborn decades of gradual progress later, after fantastic mentors helped me at every level, I began at KSC, first as a NASA postdoctoral fellow and then as a NASA Project Scientist in ISS Ground Processing and Research. My postdoctoral work at KSC focused on the Veggie plant growth system, and since joining NASA I have been leading the science team to test the Veggie hardware on ISS. My research with Veggie and other systems focuses on addressing the questions of which plant production techniques and technologies will be effective at producing quality, tasty food to supplement packaged diets in the near term, and to play a larger role in bioregenerative life support in the long term. Plants can be a source of food for the crew, and also can be involved in recycling the atmosphere and water processing. Plants can also have psychological benefits for the crew. But there are a number of challenges in microgravity and planetary habitats that need to be worked out before we can safely and efficiently produce fresh vegetables for the crew; those are what I research. The behavior of fluids, gasses, and thermal gradients make growing plants in microgravity challenging. Reducing the energy needs for electric lighting and increasing crop productivity are very important factors for long-duration growth, and testing emerging technologies can provide novel solutions. Ensuring microbiologically safe food that also has high levels of specific nutrients and tastes good at the same time requires a lot of testing, time, and resources. Since plants are so dependent on their environment, the number of potential variations is infinite, so narrowing of scope can also provide a challenge. My research is designed to give residents at a habitat on Mars in the future a better quality of life in that extreme environment. They will not only have fresh, nutritious food to eat, but they will also be able to enjoy the sight, smell, and taste of green plants. Those plants will produce food for the crew, recycle their atmosphere, and possibly even help with cleaning their water. My research will help to enable NASA's grand challenge of space colonization as humanity transitions from a planet-bound to a spacefaring civilization. I am honored to be a part of the NASA team working toward this dream.”

Ken Norton is Melissa Perri's guest on this episode of the Product Thinking Podcast. Ken is an executive coach who is passionate about “whole person” coaching– he works with product leaders not just on their careers but on their growth and development in all facets of their lives. Ken joins Melissa to discuss the evolution of product management, the stark difference between empowered and unempowered product teams, his biggest piece of advice to early career PMs, what great leadership looks like, his 14 years of experience working at Google and on products like Google Maps and Google Calendar, and why ultimately, product is all about people. Here are some key points Ken and Melissa talk about: Ken reflects on how the product management field has changed and matured over the years. Product management is no longer a “nascent, upstart concept”- it's an established role that people understand the need for. Ken laments the number of product leaders with no experience in the field being hired into companies. He discusses “this trend of people putting leaders in the position of product leadership, who have never been in the product field before.” Senior product leaders should develop and execute an apprenticeship-type program for people who want to work in the product field. Melissa comments that several product leaders are becoming general managers; she worries about the future of people who are purely product people. Ken says that he sees the general manager position as “a maturity of the product leadership role, a recognition of how important and critical that job really is.” Successful product leaders learn to lead in a way that inspires others, while confronting challenges in a proactive way. Ken talks about his experience at Google, and shares stories and examples about the leadership team and their approach to product. Ensuring your team's success means laying your plan out in steps and showing real evidence: it means showing a path forward that people can rally behind.

Ensuring your children leave home with the ability to write well, to communicate with excellence, is vital no matter what field your child chooses to pursue after high school. Imparting this skill is not arduous for the homeschool mom if she follows the essential and progressive steps given by Charlotte Mason. By teaching children to think with their pen by employing notebooking (visual and written narration), you empower your children with the tools needed for composition and every other form of writing. Notebooking is a methodology of education that employs a child's comprehension, memory, imagination, and creativity to create a living book of their own knowledge. And as Charlotte Mason says, “that which they imagine clearly, they know: it is a life possession.” Notebooking creates knowledgeable, thoughtful and proficient writers. In this podcast, Jeannie shares stories and ideas for implementing this methodology with all subjects and whatever curriculum you are using. Because this methodology is often neglected, but so fundamental, Jeannie will soon be releasing her Notebooking University online course to provide homeschoolers with any and all age children with everything they need to utilize this powerful device with or without a curriculum. Be sure to follow Jeannie on social media and her newsletter to hear updates on Notebooking University. Host biography Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!).

Throughout the animal kingdom, from fruit flies to worms to primates, one of the critical keys to longevity, or lifespan, and even more important, health span, is caloric restriction. Ensuring that you obtain all the essential nutrients, yet eat less of them, is one of the ways to do that. Eating food within a narrow time window rather than continually throughout the day, also flips genetic switches that cleanse our cells and support a healthy metabolism. While many experts affirm the health value of fasting in different ways, the question of what is meant by healthy nutrition arouses much more controversy.Today I talk with Dr. Joseph Anton, CEO and board chairman of L-Nutra, a nutrition technology company. Dr. Anton has dedicated his extensive professional experience to reforming health systems towards preventative care, creating a market for healthy aging by launching the first healthy aging product, and emphasizing fasting as a longevity lifestyle.We discuss a different perspective on fasting for longevity, which led to the creating of a Fasting Mimicking Technology Platform. Our conversation ranges through intermittent fasting, eating within circadian rhythms, plant-based diets, ketogenic eating and whether one can achieves an effective state of autophagy after anything less than a 2 day fast.

Dr. Richard Winters is an emergency physician and director of leadership development at the Mayo Clinic. In addition to working with leaders internally at Mayo, Dr. Winters delivers programs that help healthcare leaders worldwide. We discussed all of this and more this week on the On Brand podcast. About Dr. Richard Winters Dr. Richard Winters is an emergency physician at the Mayo Clinic. As director of leadership development for the Mayo Clinic Care Network, Dr. Winters delivers programs that train leaders at all levels of healthcare organizations worldwide. As an executive coach, Dr. Winters provides coaching for Mayo Clinic leaders. Winters graduated from the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine in 1994 and returned to Mayo Clinic in 2015. Previously, Winters served as managing partner of a democratic physician group, department chair of an emergency department, president of an 800-physician medical staff, and CEO/founder of a startup managed care organization that struggled to survive amidst the complex relationships among hospital, physician, patient, competitors, and insurance providers. He lives in Rochester, Minnesota, with his family. Episode Highlights So, you worked in healthcare during the past few years … I believe “Gah!” was how I phrased my less-than-eloquent opening query about working in emergency medicine during COVID-19. “Healthcare has always been a place of volatility and uncertainty,” Dr. Winters explained. Helping the helpers. As a leadership coach at Mayo, Dr. Winters's work could be described in connection to the Mister Rogers quote about “looking for the helpers.” He's charged with helping the helpers, “Ensuring that each level has the resources they need.” “Leadership is culture,” Dr. Winters detailed. “It's not just the placards and screensavers. You have to walk the talk.” For the Mayo Clinic, this goes all the way back to the founders and continues today at every level. What brand has made Dr. Winters smile recently? “Song Tea from San Francisco,” is a brand that Richard loves as it makes him feel connected to the world.

In this episode of Room to Grow, Joanie and Curtis build the conversation from NCTM's description of access, described as "ensuring that all students routinely have opportunities to experience high-quality mathematics instruction, learn challenging mathematics content, and receive the support necessary to be successful."Our hosts tackle this challenging topic by considering some important high-leverage components, particularly those that are within a classroom teachers' locus of control. Ensuring that all students have high-quality instruction from an excellent teacher supports the learning of challenging mathematics content. Joanie and Curtis consider that “support for success” extends beyond academic support, and spills over into the importance of classroom culture in access for all students. Teachers can, with intention, ensure that all students know they are viewed as doers of mathematics with ideas that are valuable for the learning of the entire class.The conversation then shifts to discussing how the Standards for Mathematical Practice can help teachers not only understand what access looks like, but also helps students realize the relevance of the mathematics they are learning. Unsurprisingly, our hosts circle back to the importance of relationships with our students for their successful learning.We encourage you to explore the resources below, referenced in this episode:NCTM's Statement on Access and Equity in Mathematics Education https://www.nctm.org/Standards-and-Positions/Position-Statements/Access-and-Equity-in-Mathematics-Education/Supporting students' identity and agency in mathematics https://www.nctm.org/Store/Products/The-Impact-of-Identity-in-K-8-Mathematics--Rethinking--Equity-Based-Practices/ Blog about Minimizing the “Matthew Effect” https://buildingmathematicians.wordpress.com/2018/01/15/minimizing-the-matthew-effect/ Skew the Script AP Statistics resources for relevant mathematics https://skewthescript.org/ Implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice https://achievethecore.org/peersandpedagogy/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Implementing-Standards-for-Mathematical-Practices-Updated-2016.pdf Instagrammer with Bachelor and Bachelorette data: https://www.instagram.com/bachelordata/?hl=enDid you enjoy this episode of Room to Grow?

The topic of cybersecurity isn't one I've addressed in previous episodes of the Digital Supply Chain podcast so we were long overdue to talk about it.Consequently I invited Imprivata's Chief Products & Design Officer Mark McArdle to come on the podcast to talk all about it.He graciously agreed and we had a fascinating conversation covering the reasons why cybersecurity is becoming more of an issue for organisations, why supply chains are uniquely vulnerable, and some strategies to harden them, while also making the supply chains more efficient. I learned loads, I hope you do too...If you have any comments/suggestions or questions for the podcast - feel free to leave me a voice message over on my SpeakPipe page or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn.

On this edition of the pod, we conclude our three-part series on nonprofit election advocacy and focus on post-election advocacy activities. After election day there are a wide array of opportunities to protect voters and the election itself. Whether it's working with state and local officials to ensure that all ballots are counted or litigating potential violations of state or federal election-related laws, nonprofits have a big role to play in the days following November 8, 2022. Our attorneys for this episode Leslie Barnes Tim Mooney Natalie Ossenfort Shownotes Reminder: 501(c)(3)s cannot support or oppose candidates Nonpartisan motivations to advocate in contested elections Proper administration of the election under the law Ensuring all legal votes are counted Protecting the will of the electorate/upholding democratic principles No IRS guidance on this, but it's consistent with approved pre-election and election days advocacy Example: Litigation Brennan Center's work in 2000 Amicus brief in Bush v. Gore Partisan and nonpartisan interests can legally coexist While the Brennan Center argued for the same thing as the Gore campaign, its work was still nonpartisan because the arguments were centered on voters' fundamental constitutional rights and not the partisan interests of the campaign. Other examples 2020 example Common Cause's work in the Georgia gubernatorial election in 2018 Michigan Welfare Rights Organization v. Donald Trump in 2020 - filed by NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (c3) and NAACP (c4) for violating the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act What kinds of advocacy are available to nonprofits following election day? Administrative advocacy, including advocacy around secretary of state certifications of the winners, and the process of counting of ballot (depending on state, may qualify as lobbying that triggers registration) Ballot chasing and curing. If a voter submits a ballot that fails to meet requirements under state law (i.e. stray marks, wrong envelopes, their signature doesn't match the one on file, etc.), there may be a role that nonprofits can play to help those voters fix the problem within the time limits set by state law (check out practical guidance voter assistance series for additional details about state laws related to ballot chasing and curing activities) - educate voters on how to track their own ballots Protests and other public gatherings, demanding proper administration of all ballot counts and fidelity to election procedures under the law. Direct advocacy to members of legislative bodies or governors when they are making decisions that are critical to the disposition of an election. This includes lobbying for emergency legislation to keep polls open or allow absentee voting to be extended, calls for oversight, in the event of natural disaster, following Ian and Fiona. Superstorm Sandy Impacted the 2012 Presidential election. 501(c)(3)s can do any of these things for nonpartisan motivations 501(c)(4)s and other nonprofits can do these things with nonpartisan motivations, or with partisan reasons (tax law limits how much). Election laws dictate the rest. 501(c)(3)s can work in coalitions with other nonprofits that are doing nonpartisan motivated work Each state will have different deadlines for election certification – remember that calls to “stop the count” or anything else to hinder the proper administration of the vote prior to that date are anti-democratic acts and nonprofits can take a role in defending against these cynical tactics.

One of the biggest challenges for pediatric therapists is making sure their caseload has support across the day and across settings. This becomes incredibly difficult to do with limited direct therapy time and when service providers are working in silos. That's why one of the most important things you can do to serve your caseload is think about service delivery before you get stuck in the weeds of IEP goals and therapy worksheets. Zooming out and looking at the bird's eye view is the first step in expanding your thinking and finding ways to be resourceful when supporting kids.In episode 84 of the Are they 18 yet?® Podcast, I share how that strategy works. I'll explain why making this shift in thinking can help service providers:✅Ensuring kids get the support they need across settings, even if direct treatment time is limited.✅Leading an IEP team to make better decisions, even if you're not an administrator or the case manager.✅Uncovering creative solutions for serving your caseload, even if you're bumping up against red tape and time limitations~Dr. KarenP.S. In this episode, I mention the School of Clinical Leadership, my program that helps pediatric therapists create the freedom to deliver services in a way that truly serves kids.

This week, I'm sharing the lessons learned from terminating two individuals who are near and dear to me. Terminating employees who are like friends and family is one of the most challenging decisions I've ever had to make in business. But one of the most valuable takeaways is the importance of asking how YOU can do better. How can you be a better leader and team leader? What areas can you improve on to future-proof the relationships in and out of your company? While entrepreneurs and team leaders don't regularly ask this, it's important to instill it into your team. When you own up to your mistakes and treat others equally, you create a strong accountability structure moving forward that everyone can pick up on. On the flip side, just as owning up to your mistakes is necessary for team success, so is praise and appreciation. Ensuring that you point out the achievements of your team members lets them know that you're investing in their growth and security. Purpose Chasers, be sure to tune in next week as I share how Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs applies to business, specifically how it applies to your employees and team members. Topics Discussed: The Number 1 question to ask yourself when facing adversity in your business Why owning your mistakes makes you a better leader Finding mutual ground and equality with your team Establishing a solid accountability structure Understanding the balance between praise and demand Ready to stop working for your business and have your business start working for you? To gain access to resources I've created for you and learn how to work with me and my marketing team to grow and scale your business, visit www.markcrandall.net Quotes: Mark Crandall "Whenever something happens that negatively impacts your company, the most important question to ask yourself is, "What can I do better." “An iron fist can only go so far, but too much praise can get you in trouble. Finding the balance between praise and demand is key.” “I never want to be better than the team beside me. I don't view myself as better or less than the people surrounding me. We are all equal.” “Making money is great, but not on the backs of those you rarely show appreciation to.” “Good is the enemy of the great. Keeping the good may prevent the great from ever gracing you with their presence.”

"Do you know your conversion rate? If you don't let's start there as to find out what it is this guy we dug into it, he had a 20% conversion rate. So, for every five people his team spoke with, he would get you know one of those become a client. And I asked him when he was doing the sales and selling how many how much would he convert? And he said he would convert 80% of the time, right? So, he would get four out of five. So, there's big disparity there. So, we set to work and identify what were the gaps? How could we get that sales up to 50%? Could we get the teams to be moving that way? Now we set that as a standard. And we put in some small steps and processes along the way. Now within three to six months, his team were up to 40%. So, they're going from 20% to 40%, just by focusing on making a few small tweaks and changes. So, if his conversion double, then of course his whole business doubled."

Anyone can open up a gallery—real or virtual—and start selling art. I mean anyone. You don't have to hold a degree or pass a test. You don't have to have ethics or morals or know anything at all about art. But I am impressed by what UGallery is doing and the services they have been providing artists and clients since 2006. Everything about them feels different. On this episode of The Art Biz, I'm joined by Alex Farkas, founder of UGallery.com. Their business model is different from others in that online space. They know art. They curate the work so there aren't thousands of random artists competing for eyeballs. UGallery is paid on commission, so they only make money if art sells.They invest in marketing to help sell more art. They are looking for relationships with their artists and nurture their artists to help them sell better online. The focus of UGallery is on painting, but you should listen to their story even if you are not a painter because you need to know that there are people and companies out there who are on your side and doing things the right way. Highlights The beginnings of the UGallery journey. (2:53) Storytelling to promote UGallery artists and their work. (4:39) Curating art on the website in non-traditional ways. (7:19) The process of finding and connecting with artists. (11:05) Working with artists to help them succeed. (16:10) What is selling at UGallery? (19:09) Finding and marketing to clients. (20:36) Artist to customer—the order fulfillment process. (23:09) Maintaining ecommerce platforms and client relationships. (28:00) Mistakes that many artists make when applying to UGallery.

We don't succeed unless the artists succeed.” — Alex Farkas “Part of the relationship is making sure that artists understand if they put the time and money in upfront, it comes back out later.” — Alex Farkas “Think about what you're trying to accomplish and what your goal is, and then work from there.” — Alex Farkas About My Guest Alex Farkas is the Gallery Director of UGallery. His love of art traces back to his hometown, Jerome, a tiny arts community in northern Arizona. Alex grew up creating sculptures in his uncle's woodworking studio and learning about the art business in his mother's gallery. He co-founded UGallery in 2006 with the goal of helping emerging artists connect with patrons. As one of the first ever online art galleries, UGallery significantly improved the opportunities available for artists. The gallery has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, and Art in America. He currently lives, and UGallery is based, in San Francisco.

Matt Solomon has been an Eagle County resident since 1996. After dedicating 21 years of his life to public service, Matt took the bold step of becoming Western Colorado's candidate for the state Senate in District 8. As a candidate, Matt believes in individual freedom and liberties; and advocates for the safety and prosperity of Coloradans not just on the Western Slope but across Colorado. Matt's appreciation and understanding of real Western Colorado values and passions and his ability to bring experience and perspective from both the public and private sector is what makes him District 8's best choice for Senator. As has been noted by people from across the political spectrum Matt's wide-ranging background and interests lead them to say “Matt is Western Colorado. Matt graduated from Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina with a B.A. in Sociology. Matt also attained an A.A.S. from Colorado Mountain College in Paramedicine. Matt serves on the Board of Directors for two non-profits and was nominated for the 2021 Community Impact Award in Eagle, Colorado. After playing college football, Matt was a Professional Whitewater Kayaker and was one of the pioneers of SUP (stand-up paddle boarding) in the Continental United States. Matt is also a published author. His book Fortunate Accidents uses stories from Matt's life to teach lessons on personal growth and leadership. Matt's story is an example of not only how he strives to live everyday but is emblematic of his candidacy and how he will represent District 8 in the state Senate. Matt has spent the last 21 years in public service. He has proudly served his community and country as a paramedic, deputy coroner, through work as a civilian contractor with the United States military, and as a twice-elected Council Member for the Town of Eagle. Matt has a principled record of respecting private property owners' rights, fighting unnecessary tax increases, defending individual freedoms, and consistently making decisions within the limitations of the both the federal and state constitutions; all while listening to, respecting, and advancing, at times, competing ideologies for the betterment of the community and those living in it. After growing up working in a family business, Matt transitioned to adulthood by carrying the knowledge from his family into several private sector endeavors. Matt built teams and launched two outdoor sports industry companies internationally. He then started two of his own companies in Colorado – one of which, is the longest standing firearm shop in Eagle County. Matt's decades worth of experience leading both national and international companies taught him the power of fiscal responsibility and how to navigate the suffocating regulations of an over-reaching government When asked, Matt shares the credit with others. He was instrumental in many policies and resolutions supporting the Town of Eagle. He helped start the Eagle River Park as a citizen, then saw it through to completion as a Council Member. Matt also worked on creative solutions for Page 2 of 2 the Town of Eagle. This included the Town of Eagle's Climate Action Plan, short-term rental policy, and General Fund reserves. He was also the spark that created a unanimous approval for returning Council paychecks to the General Fund during the pandemic's shut-down of local businesses. After sweeping the vote at the District Assembly and winning the Republican Primary by keeping his opponent off the ballot, Matt is now focused on sharing this message of values with the High Country and Western Slope. In Matt's own words: “This is a huge district with many shared concerns. The safety and education of our children is paramount. We must also address the legislation passed by our current [majority party] representation that has contributed to the increased crime and inflation. Ensuring that actual Western Slope interests stop taking a backsea
