Many companies are claiming to be eco-friendly and send that message in their marketing campaigns to attract more consumers. Lizzie Horvitz, CEO and Founder of Finch, said that there is a drastic growth for companies that invest more in sustainability than companies that don't. Many consumers tend to purchase products that are sustainable to support eco-friendly initiatives. The Gen Z market is one of the largest groups of consumers today. They had no buying power five years ago but now, most products are created and marketed based on their preference, and this group cared more about sustainability and eco-friendly goods than most generations. Thus, If you want to hear more about sustainability in a business, sit back and listen to what Lizzie has to say about sustainability and running a more eco-friendly company. Who is Lizzie Horvitz? Lizzie Horvitz received her MBA in Environmental Management at Yale University. She focused on corporate social responsibility and private-sector solutions to climate change. Having worked for Unilever for three years, she knew that she can do more for the environment and changing old habits to sustainability. Her journey as an entrepreneur began when she had the chance to work in Southeast Asia. Even since then, she has been in the field, expanding and inspiring people to become more sustainable. Finch, Sustainability Decoder Finch was created from Lizzie's initiative to inspire people to help protect the environment. The company analyses products' environmental impact and rates products based on their environmental footprints. This helps consumers make better decisions in buying and helps companies pick eco-friendly materials for manufacturing. The pandemic gave many people more time to come up with ideas of sustainability and help protect the environment. This has built a stronger foundation for Finch in the market, as people began to notice how humans create an impact on the environment. The lockdowns somehow helped the ecosystem to take a breather from poisonous fumes, smog, carbon emissions, etc. The long-term objective of Finch is to encourage businesses to shift to a mindset that prioritises sustainability. It's better to look at the long-term results than focus on what you can only gain quarterly. From a financial standpoint, companies that choose to be more sustainable increase their chances for more profit as many consumers are now turning to sustainable products. This encourages companies and manufacturers to lean on sustainability and more importantly help solve the ongoing issues in climate change. Lizzie's Superpower ‘Relentless Optimism' is Lizzie's superpower. Her optimism led her to build Finch. She feels optimistic about having a better environment as she advocates optimism in changing people's mindsets to focus more on sustainability. For her, the best way to solve climate change is to have a comprehensive collaboration between private and government sectors.

On today's show, Dane is joined by Britt Robson from MinnPost to take a bigger picture look at who the Wolves have been over the last few weeks. Now 28 games into KAT's absence, the KAT-less identity has broadly been defined, so Dane and Britt try to take what they have (or have not) seen in that time and connect it to what that might look like when KAT returns. Topics include... — Might the Wolves lean more into their big identity when KAT returns than they did prior to his absence? — What do we think about this lineup: Edwards-McDaniels-Anderson-Towns-Gobert? — Needing a different type of patience with Gobert than Utah used — If the Wolves ran back the same roster next season, how would we project that team differently than we did entering this season? — What is needed from Finch to figure this thing out?

We began our episode by serving up the freshest meals in Camden County as we spoke with the co-owner and Chef of Corinne's Place. Originally born from a small catering business, the Founder Corinne Bradley-Powers grew her business into a beloved neighborhood spot; offering scratch-made foods that visitors from all over would travel to enjoy. Eventually word spread and her meals became so enticing that even celebrities and food critics became repeat customers. Mrs. Bradley-Powers eventually sold her business to Trevor Vaughan & his partner, Craig Sawyer, but not without Corinne's blessing; Corinne's new role within her famed restaurant is being the new owner's consultant. After ownership of the restaurant changed hands in 2019, Corinne's Place was nominated (and won) the James Beard Foundation's "America's Classics" Award, which is given to establishments that have remained open for at least 10 years, and reflect the character of its community. We touch on all of this and more, so stay tuned to hear about Corinne's Place's mouth-watering foods made with a whole lot of heart. Speaking of heart, we take you into the heart of Philadelphia's dining scene as we speak with Michelle Shannon who is the Vice President of Market and Communications for Center City District's Restaurant Week. Michelle and Gene had an enlightening discussion regarding the origins of Restaurant Week and the role it plays within the community. The two-week long event not only highlights some of the most prestigious restaurants within center city, it benefits all of you by providing the opportunity to taste the flavors of Philadelphia's vibrant dining scene at a set price. If you are looking to experience a restaurant that you've not heard of before, or perhaps one that is on your date-night bucket list, Center City Districts Restaurant Week is the perfect time to get a taste of what you're craving! Now if what you're craving is a delicious Mediterranean meal, then our next guest will surely tempt your taste buds! Spice Finch's Executive Chef, Michael Brenfleck, joined us to discuss the delectable options for their Center City Restaurant Week Menu! As we discussed a variety of Spice Finch's menu, both our co-hosts salivated over the luscious descriptions of every item. And what better way to enjoy a richly devised meal than to pair it with the perfect wines? This is why Chef Brenfleck sat with Spice Finch's Beverage Manager to pick just the right wine to pair with the first two courses. Now that is something I would like lingering on my palate--and you can too, so long as you stay tuned in for the entire episode of Food, Farms, & Chefs!

Nicola H. Cosentino"Le tracce fantasma"minimum faxhttps://minimumfax.comValerio Scordia - trentotto anni, ex chitarrista - vive della sua passione: ascolta canzoni e scrive cosa ne pensa. Impulsivo e sarcastico, spera di sfibrare la propria perenne frustrazione schizzando da una strada all'altra di Milano, tra negozi di dischi, appartamenti di cantanti-dive e incontri a volte rivelatori, più spesso disastrosi. Finché l'inaspettato turbamento per la notizia che Anna, vecchio amore, ha avuto una figlia si somma all'invidia per il successo del suo ex migliore amico, cantautore in vertiginosa ascesa. Come reagire? Semplice: ascoltando più dischi, vuotando più bottiglie e scoprendo che, almeno per lui, mischiare musica e alcol funziona da macchina del tempo, riportandolo letteralmente nel passato. Non nel suo, però: in quello di Anna, la donna dovrebbe dimenticare. Le tracce fantasma è un romanzo sull'illusione che la bellezza sia la legge che governa il mondo; sul confondere arte e vita reale, e dovere a questo equivoco tutta la propria tristezza, ma anche ogni nota di felicità. Cosentino cesella una storia in cui la malinconia per i possibili che non sono stati convive con la vulnerabile certezza che gli errori, le relazioni naufragate e i sogni infranti sono in realtà i semi invisibili cui affidare il futuro. E che talvolta le impronte lasciate dagli altri nella nostra vita riaffiorano all'improvviso, come canzoni segrete in coda a un disco che credevamo di conoscere a memoria.Nicola H. Cosentino è nato a Praia a Mare e vive e lavora a Milano. Il suo precedente romanzo, Vita e morte delle aragoste (Voland 2017), ha vinto il Premio Brancati Giovani nel 2018 ed è stato tradotto in francese e in tedesco.

If you feed the birds during the winter, you may notice some differences in the species visiting the feeders from year to year. Some species, such as chickadees, are consistent visitors. But other species, such as siskins, seem to vary considerably — and during some years they seem to show up en masse, indicating some sort of invasion or "irruption" — meaning a sudden change in the population density.

We kick off this episode with Henry Francis Fynn, the trader who'd made his home in Port Natal and was part of a group of Englishmen who'd fought with Shaka against Sikhunyane of the Ndwande. By 1826 Fynn had been living basically as a Zulu at Mpendwini, near the Mbokodwe stream which is close to Isipingo south of Durban. Last week I explained how Shaka had donated three herds of cattle to Fynn so he could set up his important Umuzi. One of the herds was payment for helping defeat the Ndwandwe. Fynn by now was given a Zulu name, Mbuyazi – which means long-tailed finch, a bird, of the bay. One of his praise songs was all about the Finch, a fiscal shrike, which is particularly vicious in how it hunts – by impaling insects on thorns. Fynn was Shaka's favourite mercenary, a killer, and one of the few that Shaka allowed to kill people without his direct permission. Later Fynn's descendents would become known as iziNkumbi, the locusts. By 1826 Fynn had four, possibly five, Zulu wives. We don't know their names because these were never passed down in the usual Zulu oral tradition, not even his great wife. But we know quite about about his children. A son called Mpahlwa was born while Fynn was off fighting the NDwandwe, so he was conceived around December 1825. That was a few months after Fynn's umuzi had been setup. He adopted the Zulu custom of living, and would send for one of his wives every night, who would come to his hut at nightfall. Only poor men would creep around at dusk to visit their wives. Fynn had thrown off all pretenses of living like a European – unlike some of the other traders such as Maclean the youngster, or Farewell. So by 1826, Shaka was watching these traders with their guns and ships carefully. In the same year, the Zulu king decided to move his entire main umuzi closer to Port Natal – building his new residency on the site of an Umuzi long abandoned by the Cele chieftan Dibhandlela. We'll come back to what happened there next episode, right now lets swing to the north west deeper– because our old friend – who was actually still quite young by the name of, Mzilikazi of the Khumalo had been a very very busy young man. The remnants of Sikhuyane's Ndwandwe, shattered by Shaka, joined up with him in the area around the upper reaches of the Vaal River by the end of 1826. The erosion of power of the Buhurutshe people was taking place, the Mzilikazi was also incorporating refugees from the Tswana and Sotho chiefdoms as the area to the south and West of the Vaal became more unstable. The Pedi had also been defeated earlier by Zwide's Ndwandwe and now Mzilikazi was busy taking advantage of their defeat to raid their old stomping ground. The Khumalo people had become an agglomeration of their original clan from Zululand and the Tswana called them the Matabele – Nguni speakers called them the amaNdebele. amaNdebele means the Marauders. They were indeed, amaNdebele.
On today's show, Dane is joined by Jace Frederick from the St. Paul Pioneer Press to take stock of where the Wolves are three games into their five-game road trip. Much of the focus of this episode is on the inconsistency of this team right now and specifically the role Chris Finch can (or can not) be expected to bring in terms of motivation. Topics include... — How much of the Wolves sporadic effort falls on Chris Finch? — Gregg Popovich philosophy on player motivation — What type of wing defender is missing from this Wolves wing roster? — If the Wolves could add any player in the NBA not on a rookie contract who makes between $9 and $11 million, who would you choose?

How do Phil and Kyle feel about the Wolves after 20 games? And if "Miami Heat culture" is all about "discipline, accountability, work ethic and enjoying other people's success," what is Timberwolves Culture?
