A powerful movement is happening in farming today—farmers are reconnecting with their roots to fight climate change. For one woman, that's meant learning her tribe's history to help bring back the buffalo. For another, it's meant preserving forest purchased by her great-great-uncle, among the first wave of African Americans to buy land. Others are rejecting monoculture to grow corn, beans, and squash the way farmers in Mexico have done for centuries. Still others are rotating crops for the native cuisines of those who fled the “American wars” in Southeast Asia. In Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming (Island Press, 2022), Liz Carlisle tells the stories of Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian American farmers who are reviving their ancestors' methods of growing food—techniques long suppressed by the industrial food system. These farmers are restoring native prairies, nurturing beneficial fungi, and enriching soil health. While feeding their communities and revitalizing cultural ties to land, they are steadily stitching ecosystems back together and repairing the natural carbon cycle. This, Carlisle shows, is the true regenerative agriculture – not merely a set of technical tricks for storing CO2 in the ground, but a holistic approach that values diversity in both plants and people. Liz Carlisle is an Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at UC Santa Barbara, where she teaches courses on food and farming. Born and raised in Montana, she got hooked on agriculture while working as an aide to organic farmer and U.S. Senator Jon Tester, which led to a decade of research and writing collaborations with farmers in her home state. She has written three books about regenerative farming and agroecology: Lentil Underground (2015), Grain by Grain (2019, with co-author Bob Quinn), and most recently, Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming (2022). She is also a frequent contributor to both academic journals and popular media outlets, focusing on food and farm policy, incentivizing soil health practices, and supporting new entry farmers. She holds a Ph.D. in Geography, from UC Berkeley, and a B.A. in Folklore and Mythology, from Harvard University.

Did you know that “the shorter we sleep, the shorter our life will be?[i]” Professor Matthew Walker, The New Science of Sleep and Dreams On this episode you will learn: ✔︎  A review of the importance of sleep on our physical and mental health. ✔︎ How lack of sleep attacks the memory centers of our brain. ✔︎ 2 science-based strategies to improve memory and never forget anything ever again. ✔︎ Tips for how to use these strategies in your life for improved results. Have you ever said, “I'll sleep when I'm dead” or pushed through your work possibly doing an all-nighter, thinking that you'll catch up over the weekend? The most current research shows that this is a really bad idea, as Matthew Walker, the author of the book, Why We Sleep, tells us that “lack of sleep attacks the hippocampus (where memory and learning take place) and increases the risk for various forms of cancer.”[ii]  We have covered the importance of sleep on this podcast in many different places, including a BONUS episode in December 2020 where we talked about sleep as one of The Top 5 Health Staples[iii] we should all pay attention to, but Professor Matthew Walker reminds us that “as we are getting older, our learning and memory abilities fade and decline...and that a physiological signature of aging is that our sleep gets worse” which contributes to cognitive or memory decline. I don't know about you, but as I'm going through the next 50+ years of my life, I'd like to have a sharp memory, in addition to a healthy body that can help me to do the things I want to do with work and family and when I find something that's NEW and INTERESTING, I will share it with you, wherever you might be listening to this podcast, so it can help you in your personal and professional life. My hope is that today's Brain Fact Friday makes us all think about how we can improve our sleep, memory and overall health as I share the most current research, and how I'm applying it for improved results and productivity. We are now nearing the end of Season 7 of the podcast on “Brain Health and Well-Being” and will begin Season 8 in June, on “Brain Health and Learning.” Having a theme for each season helps me to stay focused on the guests we bring on, as well as the questions I ask them. If there is a topic of interest to you, please send me a message[iv] and let me know. Today we are going to take a deeper look at the importance of sleep on our learning, memory and overall health, as we prepare to speak with the world's leading expert on sleep paralysis, Dr. Baland Jalal, from Harvard University, who will help us to connect the brain to some of our weirdest sleep experiences, with the hopes that this connection can help us to all learn something new, and perhaps use some new strategies to make sleep a priority that will in turn improve our memory and learning in our waking hours. While researching for our next interview with Dr. Baland Jalal[v], I've been looking at what some of the leading experts have discovered about our dreams and sleep. I did explore what I was learning on EPISODE #211 on “The Neuroscience of Dreams: Expanding Our Self-Awareness”[vi] to open up the door for this interview and always want to remind everyone of EPISODE #104 with Antonio Zadra on “When Brains Dream”[vii] but today I want to highlight how our sleep is important for learning and memory consolidation, hoping the Dr. Jalal will deepen our understanding of our dream world, take some of the mystery out of what happens to our brain during sleep, and bring some strategies to the forefront that we can use to improve our productivity in the 16 hours of our waking day. So Why is Sleep So Important and Critical to Look at For Our Health, Well-Being and Productivity? Professor and Neuroscientist Matthew Walker, from the University of California, reveals a recent study with adults who got 6 hours of sleep vs 8 hours, and they noticed that in the “6 hours of sleep group, that certain genes were turned off (the immunity genes)” that we all need to fight against disease and viruses, and the genes that were turned on were the genes that produced tumors in the body. We've all heard of how important sleep is, and how it's nonnegotiable for our health, but this study put sleep back on the map for me to keep investigating to see how else it can be improved. After our interview with Dr. Jalal, I hope to show how our dream time can benefit our wake time, and how we can use our sleep time for improved creativity, focus and productivity while we are working/awake. Since lack of sleep “attacks the hippocampus” of the brain, where our memories are first formed, and then consolidated from short-term to long-term memory, I wanted to share some strategies where our memories can be strengthened, with or without a good night of sleep. I share these 2 strategies with you, as I recently had to draw on them, and then while listening to Stanford Professor and Neuroscientist, Dr. Andrew Huberman's most recent podcast, on Understanding and Improving Memory[viii], I made some connections to the memory building techniques I've been using, while Dr. Huberman showed how science proves these strategies grounded in science. If what Matthew Walker says is true, and that as I'm getting older, my learning and memory abilities are fading and declining, it would make sense to me to find some ways to strengthen my memories to prevent this from occurring. Last week, the day before interviewing Dr. Marie Gervais, for EPISODE #214[ix] something weird happened and I lost the questions for our interview. The good thing is that it was the day before the interview, so I had time to recreate them, but what was interesting is that I relied on my memory to do this quicker than if I had to start from scratch. While I know I don't have a photographic memory, where I could remember every word by detail, after listening to Dr. Andrew Huberman's podcast on Improving Memory with Science Based Tools, I could see how science really helped me in this situation. USING SCIENCE TO STRENGTHEN OUR MEMORIES   TIP #1 Taking a Mental Snapshot in Your Mind. Until I heard Dr. Huberman talking about this as an effective, science-backed method for improving our memory, I wouldn't have believed it myself, even though I do this all the time. He drew on a research article about Photographic Memory[x] where he explained it's not in the sense of remembering every word of writing on a page (like some people can do) but a bit different—something he has been doing since he was a young kid, and something I've done since I was young as well. It's when we take either an actual or mental photograph of something we want to remember, and the research says that if it's something we choose to remember ourselves (it's volitional) then our memory of this snapshot is enhanced, and even if we delete the actual photograph, if we took one, that we should still be able to recall every detail in the image, from our mind, for years to come. HOW TO USE THIS IN YOUR DAILY LIFE I thought about this example with recreating my questions for Dr. Gervais. Because I was in an emotional state while reading her book, and creating her questions, you would think this is what helped me to remember them when I had to recreate them (because her book The Spirit of Work was all about connecting to her at the soul level). I had the research, and went through each point, and remembered where the questions came from, but the places I could remember the questions clearly, were the ones that were connected to images I had seen (whether on social media) or somewhere that I remember thinking “yes, this goes along with what I want to ask” and it was the mental image recall that helped me to remember her questions. If you want to try this, take either a mental, or an actual photograph of something you want to remember. Remember it must be volitional, not something someone else wants you to remember. While taking the photo, or imaging it, pay attention to what you are seeing. Where is the picture? What's in the background? Is there a person in the picture? What are they wearing? Is there anything about the photo that would allow you to pinpoint the month the photo was taken? Are they wearing something that stands out? Where are they standing? How are they standing? What's behind them? Is there a window in the photo? What's outside the window? Is it daytime or nighttime? Now that you've got your mental image, delete it, stop thinking about it, and wait a week, and see how much of the image you can remember. With practice, you should be able to recall details from these mental or actual snapshots, many years later. Dr. Huberman did say that the research showed that although the image could be recalled, that the auditory along with the image would be diminished, or that vision trumps our auditory senses.  TIP #2: Highly Emotional States + Adrenaline=Enhanced Memory. Dr. Huberman shared a study that was done by Cahill and McGough[xi] that showed when you are in a highly emotional state, adrenaline is released but what is interesting about this study is that “it's not the emotion that stamps the memory down, but it's the presence of adrenaline”[xii] that solidifies the memory. He said “You don't need to take anything to spike adrenaline” (Dr. Andrew Huberman) you just need to find what works for you and if it “makes your eyes go wide and breathing increase” then you've spiked your adrenaline. He did give some suggestions of ways to recreate this adrenaline boost in our brain to enhance learning and memory, without using repetition (the most popular research based strategy for learning retention) like cold ice baths or showers to increase adrenaline, or exercise that I use often. HOW TO USE THIS IN YOUR DAILY LIFE: How do you approach learning and memory? With this research in mind, did you think about stamping the memory of what you want to remember with adrenalin? Have you heard of strategies to increase adrenalin in your body (like a cold shower or cold bath) to stamp down your learning? I talked about this with Dr. John Ratey when I interviewed him on EPISODE #116 on “The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain”[xiii] when I told Dr. Ratey that in order to study neuroscience, write these episodes, and make sense of it all, I had to run up a mountain, or do some sort of rigorous cardio activity in order to be able to sit at my desk and actually understand what I'm reading. Dr. Ratey agreed that I needed to create the neural chemicals needed for learning and memory. How do you approach learning and memory? Exercise, cold baths, or some other method? I'd love to know… To review this week's Brain Fact Friday Did you know that “lack of sleep attacks the hippocampus”[xiv] the part of the brain that plays a role in learning and memory. If we want to protect this part of our brain, then paying attention to how much and how long we sleep is a responsible next step for us to all focus on, in addition to working on strategies that can strengthen this important part of our brain. We covered 2 tips for implementing how an understanding of our brain can improve productivity in our life with the mental snapshot strategy that will allow you to remember anything, even if you've deleted it, by paying attention to whatever it is that you want to remember, and then practice this, to strengthen this part of your memory center. If you are like me, and have deleted something, you'll never have to worry, because it will never be lost, when you've backed it up with a mental snapshot. The second strategy of enhancing our memories is with the idea that it's not just our emotions that make our memories stick, but the presence of adrenaline and to find ways to increase adrenaline naturally (like through exercise) to create the neural chemicals that our brain needs for learning and memory. I hope you've enjoyed this episode, and that you have taken away something to improve your brain health and well-being. I'll see you next episode with Dr. Baland Jalal where we will see what we can learn about ourselves, by diving into the dream world.

Olga Bertelsen's timely book, In the Labyrinth of the KGB: Ukraine's Intelligentsia in the 1960s-1970s (Lexington Books, 2022), focuses on the generation of the sixties and seventies in Kharkiv, Soviet Ukraine—a milieu of writers who lived through the Thaw and the processes of de-Stalinization and re-Stalinization. Special attention is paid to KGB “active measures” against what came to be known as the dissident milieu, and the interaction of Ukrainians, Jews, and Russians in the movement, their personal friendships, formal and informal interactions, and how they dealt with repression and arrests. Her book demonstrates that the KGB unintentionally facilitated the transnational and intercultural links among the multi-ethnic community of writers and their mutual enrichment. Post-Khrushchev Kharkiv is analyzed as a political space and a place of state violence aimed at combating Ukrainian nationalism and Zionism, two major targets in the 1960s–1970s. Bertelsen shows that, in the face of intense KGB operations, Kharkivite writers and intellectuals attempted to survive in the state's “labyrinth” with their integrity, creativity, and human relationships intact. This book sheds light on the history of Soviet intelligence tactics and the creative intelligentsia, and helps explain the legacies of Soviet/Russian state violence that are erupting once more in Ukraine.

Many use the internet considering it more like a walk in the park rather than realizing it is more like a trip down a dark alley. Today's guest is Stuart Madnick. Professor Madnick has been a faculty member at MIT since 1972. He has served as the head of MIT's IT group for more than 20 years. During that time, the group has been consistently rated number 1 in the nation among schools for information technology programs. Dr. Madnick is a prolific writer and author or co-author of over 380 books, articles, or technical reports and textbooks. He has a degree in Electronic Engineering, Management, and Computer Science from MIT. He has been a visiting professor at Harvard University and six additional countries. Show Notes: [1:10] - Dr. Madnick shares his background and current role at MIT. [2:53] - There were examples of cybersecurity attacks predating the internet through floppy disks. [4:02] - In the late 90s and early 2000s, the internet experienced a boom of users. [5:50] - In other industries, safety is a priority. [6:53] - Everything, even toothbrushes, have computers in them. [8:30] - Most know of the common scams, but there are people who still fall victim to them. [9:18] - Some of the really poorly written scam emails are intentionally created this way to find the most gullible. [10:15] - Dr. Madnick describes spear phishing and the rise in these cases. [11:30] - In some cases, only a couple hundred dollars could be enough for a scammer and they add up quickly. [13:03] - Don't feel bad if you are hit by a believable scam. [14:11] - Most people do not consider what to do to minimize damage. [16:56] - If something bad happens to your computer and/or your data, what is your plan? [18:54] - Dr. Madnick shares some corporate examples of cyberattacks. [20:23] - We constantly have several subconscious decisions that we don't consider the consequences of. [22:16] - Maintaining certificates and security is a tedious and manual task. [23:51] - Data is tracked by how attacks were successful rather than how many were unsuccessful. [26:10] - Larger companies are starting to give more attention to cybersecurity but the progress is very slow. [28:31] - Cybersecurity can be considered a catastrophe. [29:30] - What does a cyber catastrophe look like? [31:40] - Outages and malfunctions are possible and in catastrophes, a solution can take weeks or more. [33:22] - It may not be likely that a catastrophe will happen, but it is possible, and we are unprepared. [36:12] - You can't avoid all risks, but you can minimize the damage done. [39:31] - Cybersecurity tends to be a low priority. [41:17] - What is a “zero-click vulnerability?” [43:12] - Cybersecurity education is outdated in most schools. [44:43] - You can put a better lock on your front door, but if you put your key under the mat, are you any more secure? Thanks for joining us on Easy Prey.

She wrote the book "Three Word Meetings."  Lisa coaches leaders on simplifying sales and business meetings with fun and interesting 3-word  topics to get your sales team motivated and inspired.   Episode 153, Five Commencement Speeches that can help your Business!   It's Graduation Time! Congratulations to the parents who have kids who are graduating or the adults who earned their MBA or new certification. Three Words, You did it! It's like Warren Buffet says the best investment you can make is in yourself.   All graduations have some form of Commencement Speech. These speeches are Educational, Entertaining, and Inspirational and designed to help us transition into the business world.   I reflected on seeing if I could remember my High School and College Commencement speeches. Now that was a long time ago, and sadly I do not. Perhaps I was distracted talking to my sister Lynn and missed it. For me to retain important information, it has to connect to me. More importantly, if you can keep the message simple ( maybe three words laughing), you can recall the wisdom you learned.   I thought I would share a few of my favorite Commencement speeches that can apply to your Business and a simple phrase my nephew Will lives his life by that you are sure to remember!   View setbacks as opportunities / Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005 This powerful speech from the late Steve Jobs (entrepreneur, Apple founder, and tech icon) will resonate no matter where you're at in your career. Sharing stories from pivotal events in his life — getting fired from Apple, and receiving a cancer diagnosis — Jobs explains that your setbacks often lead you to success.   He encourages you to approach every obstacle as an opportunity to learn and pursue the work that inspires you. He says, "The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do."   Successful business owners are always willing to learn and evolve. Whether you look to podcasts, past teachers, mentors, or other business owners, you can find valuable lessons about fear, change, growth, and purpose.   Embrace failure / J.K. Rowling, Harvard University, 2008 J.K Rowling wrote Seven Harry Potter Books because she Embraced Failure. In her speech, J.K. Rowling talks about the inherent value of Failure: it helps you succeed. Drawing on her experience as a poor single mother struggling to publish her first book, Rowling explains that Failure can be a driving force: that liberates you from fear and motivates you to pursue what you want most.   As she puts it, "It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all — in which case, you fail by default." Take a cue from Rowling and embrace your business failures as opportunities to grow and become bolder.   "If it doesn't feel right, don't do it." — Oprah Winfrey's 2008 speech at Stanford University. Don't sacrifice Happiness for Money! "When you're doing the work you're meant to do, it feels right, and every day is a bonus, regardless of what you're getting paid," she said. Oprah shared that feelings are your GPS for life. She said you could feel when you're doing the right thing in your gut. Your emotional guidance system lets you know when you're supposed to do Something or not supposed to do Something," she said. She explained that doing what your instincts tell you to do will make you more successful because it will drive you to work harder and save you from debilitating stress.   "If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. That's the lesson. And that lesson alone will save you, my friends, much grief," Winfrey said. When you don't know what to do, get still, get very still, until you know what to do."   Spend less time dreaming and more time doing / Shonda Rhimes, Dartmouth, 2014 Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and Bridgerton would not be possible for our entertainment viewing without Shonda Rhimes. Her commencement speech message was about what to do if you feel overwhelmed or paralyzed by the dreams you have for your Business.   Shonda Rhimes shares, "While [some] are busy dreaming, the really happy people, the really successful people, the really interesting, engaged, powerful people, are busy doing." Dreaming is only effective if you follow it with action — whether you're brainstorming a new business model or imagining how to grow your company. You don't even need to know what you want to do. Rhimes says the most important thing is to stay open to possibilities and start somewhere.     If there is a Will, there is Way / Will Fick Penn State 2022 Will Fick is my nephew, 24 years old, with Down Syndrome. Thanks to the Live stream, I was able to see Will in his Blue Graduation gown walk with others to get his diploma. Will earned his certification from the College of Education, "Worklink Strategies and employability ."The WorkLink program provides an opportunity for individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) to participate in postsecondary experiences and education alongside their peers.    This program provides Will with the skills to work in the business world.   " If there is a Will, there is a Way." I share this simple phrase because I believe it can inspire you with your Business. Will has never met a stranger; he is excited to learn new things.   As I watched Will grow into a young man, I learned many lessons from him. Be Kind, Laugh, Learn Something new each day, Let go of the past, Live in the moment, and yes, If there is a Will, there is a Way!   So I encourage you to stop and think about your commencement speech. What words of encouragement and inspiration can you share with yourself that can inspire you to keep investing in yourself and your future.   It's all about your perspective, and if you have the Will, you can find a Way!   If you think someone could benefit from this episode, share it, rate it, or subscribe for Free on Itunes or Spotify, so you don't miss out on the next three-word podcast.   Learn more about Simplifying Your sales meetings using 3-word topics at http://www.threewordmeetings.com.

Diverse democracies are new, wonderful, but potentially fragile: that's the claim, the promise and the warning from my guest today, Yascha Mounk. Yascha wears many hats. He is a Professor at Johns Hopkins, the Founder of Persuasion, a publication and community devoted to the maintenance of a liberal society, and host an excellent podcast, The Good Fight. Also a political scientist and historian with four books to his name, most recently The Great Experiment - Why Diverse Democracies Fall Apart and How They Can Endure, which is the main topic of our conversation today. We talk about the dangers of tribalism and majority domination in diverse democracies; the difference between a liberal society and a democratic society (and which is more important), the intrinsic "groupiness" of human beings and how that means liberals need to be in the business of drawing lines between groups (whether they like it or not), what the communitarian critics of liberalism get wrong, the wonderful messiness of liberal societies, Federalist 10, and the risks of an overemphasis on racial or ethnic identity, or "racecraft", which is an increasingly dominant trend on both the political right and the political left.

Buy his latest book, The Great Experiment here. ​Born in Germany to Polish parents, Yascha received his BA in History from Trinity College Cambridge and his PhD in Government from Harvard University. He is an Associate Professor of the Practice of International Affairs at Johns Hopkins University, where he holds appointments in both the School of Advanced International Studies and the SNF Agora Institute. Yascha is also a Contributing Editor at The Atlantic, a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Founder of Persuasion.
