Jens Bache is not your ordinary Ashtanga yoga practitioner or teacher. He came to yoga as a highly celebrated Engineer, in the middle of a very normal career trajectory, yet he was looking for more… Life had to have more meaning. He felt isolated and stressed. Then in 1997, on a work-study trip in Berkeley California, Jens Bache experienced yoga for the first time. “A daily yoga practice at home gave me the peace of mind I was looking for.” When he returned to Copenhagen he participated in his first workshop in 1999, and quite unexpectedly, he became the main instigator in creating an Ashtanga Yoga grassroots community in Copenhagen. As Jens said, he had a unique set of ‘process oriented skills' from his Business degree in Project Management, which were badly needed in the yoga community. And so, this kind of self reliance in Jens grew into the first Mysore-style school that he nurtured along with Susanna Finocchi for 18 years. In 2003, Jens traveled to Mysore to learn from Guruji at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute and continued returning annually since this first visit. He enjoyed expanding his knowledge about Indian philosophy, culture, and all things yoga. And, quickly, yet not surprisingly, Jens was soon relied upon by the Jois family themselves to run their European Tour stops! So, luckily for you, in this episode, you'll find out exactly what it might be like to host a tour stop with Sharath Jois and his family! Jens has been the primary catalyst in bringing Sharath Jois to Copenhagen 6 times now, the first tour being in 2006 with the whole family, including Guruji (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) and Saraswathi. He has risen to the occasion again and again and hopes to have the honour once again this summer, in conjunction with his partner Lisa Lalér, co-owner of the Yoga Shala Stockholm, to host Sharathji on tour. Jens translated Sri K. Pattabhi Jois' book ”Yoga Mala” into Danish and is one of the masterminds behind the documentaries ”Guruji in Copenhagen” and ”Sharath in Copenhagen.” Jens obtained a Masters degree in Indology – the study of Indian history, literature, philosophy and culture – from the Copenhagen University, and now acts as a “Cultural Broker” mediating between companies in Denmark and India to facilitate a greater understanding between organizations, through cultural translation.

Synopsis On today's date in 1935, at the Church of Saint François-Xavier in Paris, organist Geneviève de la Salle gave the first complete performance of the three-movement Suite, Op. 5, by the French composer, teacher, and virtuoso organist Maurice Duruflé. If you sing in a choir or are a fan of choral music, you're probably familiar with Duruflé's serene and tranquil “Requiem,” Op. 9, which premiered some 12 years later. Duruflé's Op. 5 premiered in 1935, his Op. 9 in 1947, so you might reasonably conclude the composer was a slow worker – which he was. He was also a very self-critical perfectionist whose catalog of works is rather small, but exquisitely crafted. In all, Duruflé's output comprises less than 15 published works, of which seven are for organ. Duruflé's music is firmly embedded in the French tradition of organ composers like César Franck and Louis Vierne, and orchestral composers like Debussy, Ravel, and Duruflé's own composition teacher, Paul Dukas. The great French organist Marie-Claire Alain, when asked to describe Duruflé's music, replied "it is a perfectly honest art… He was not an innovator but a traditionalist… Duruflé evolved and amplified the old traditions, making them his own."

The tulpa has become a staple of Western popular culture and has even taken a role in New Age occultism through the practice of tulpamancers. Tulpas play a prominent role in David Lynch's Twin Peaks series, appear in the X-Files, and bronies—adult male fans of My Little Pony—have even conjured their own little pony tulpas. The Western tulpa is a kind of imaginary friend brought to life. If it gathers enough of its creator's energy, the creature can, like a golem, take on a life of its own. Much of this tulpa mysticism is a recent invention, borrowing from theosophy, chaos magic, and esoteric buddhism. Traditionally, the tulpa has been attributed to Tibetan Buddhists. It's true that Tibetans, drawing on earlier Indian texts, have a concept for a mind-made body or emanation but their practice and theology do not come anywhere near what the bronies and their fellow tulpamancers have been up to. In this episode, we try and make sense of the tangled history of the tulpa.

It is late May, 1607, and Jamestown has survived the first organized attack against the settlement, this time from an alliance of five tribes from the Powhatan Confederacy. Captain Christopher Newport and John Smith don't know this yet, because they have taken twenty-two men in their boat and were exploring up the James River. There they hear about a "paramount chief" for the first time, and the large tribal confederacy that confronts them. As the summer and fall of 1607 grinds on, disease, starvation, and Indian attacks afflict the colonists, and more than half will die before the end of the year. John Ratcliffe replaces Edward-Maria Wingfield as president of the colony, but John Smith is its chief operating officer, rallying the men to build houses an clear fields, and trading with the local tribes for food. While exploring upriver, he is captured by the military leader of the Powhatans, Opechancanough. Smith eventually meets the paramount chief Powhatan. The episode closes with a first look at the famous scene in which Pocahontas either saved John Smith's life, or didn't!

Guesting on this episode is Europe's number one self-mastery mentor, mindset trainer, international best-selling author, and award-winning speaker Mahima Lucille Klinge. Mahima was born in Zimbabwe and now lives in Switzerland. She has dedicated her entire adult life to mastering the skill of joyful living in the present moment and sharing what she has learned. Mahima's mindsets training and workshops restore energetic, peaceful, balanced, and optimistic people who are stressed out physically, mentally, and emotionally. Mahima offers a one-of-a-kind approach to discovering your genius and real calling in life using a combination of exclusive tools and techniques. Tune in as Mahima talks about the importance of Meditation and Mindset. [08:08] Why should I listen to you? You should pay attention to me because I talk from the heart and personal experience. I try to practice what I preach. I have two and a half decades of unique development material from when people were pursuing master's degrees, PhDs, or other pieces of paper that would help them in life. [08:48] For many years, I sat in an ashram in India, meditating six hours a day because I had discovered my passion, something that could help me transcend my limited thinking and experience. Something much more beautiful and empowering, which enabled me to create a great deal of beauty in my life. [11:03] How did you become the person you are today, knowing all the hurdles you had to jump over to get to where you are right now? I'll begin by telling you about my great-grandmother. She grew up in Africa, where there was no running water or electricity. She never left the area, lived for over 90 years, and died there. My grandfather, on the other hand, desired more for himself. He resolved to walk from Zimbabwe to South Africa, from the heart of Africa to the nature of Africa. Consider the distance he had to travel to obtain what he desired, even if there are dangers, particularly in animals in Africa, which contribute to the deaths of many people. [12:26] My grandfather was the first member of our family to escape the heart of Africa with running water, and he did it by moving to the suburbs, where he and my grandmother met. My mother, on the other hand, went as far as she could in her schooling. However, she did not attend university, opting instead for high school education. And they began their career as a nurse. [13:04] Mahima is born into a world where her father disappears, which was rather typical in those days; it wasn't uncommon for a man to vanish and abandon his children, and I've never heard from my father since. As a result, Mahima is only related to her grandmother and mother. [14:36] Mahima's family was similarly raised as Roman Catholics. She received a Roman Catholic education, including beatings. She had all of these things happen to her at the age of 14, but she managed to break away because she began modeling at a young age. Mahima got noticed in Zimbabwe and started earning money more money than anybody else in her family made. It enabled her to leave home at 16 since she thought the setting was no longer suitable for her. [15:33] Mahima became aware of the damage caused by years of abuse and trauma when she married at 21. She married the Swiss guy, and he demonstrated how disoriented she was; how far removed she was from loving, respecting, and feeling comfortable in her flesh. She was unaware that she was that untidy until she entered into a relationship. That relationship ended although they lived in a magnificent house with a swimming pool and a jacuzzi - all the things that should indicate that you have a husband, a beautiful home, you have accomplished something, and it will make you happy. None of it brought her happiness. In fact, she was more wretched than she had ever been. [16:49] How do we get to the point of the Mahima mindset? Where does that all come to start budding and growing into what it is now? By luck, life brought me to India. I found myself in an Ashram in India; I was not looking for anything. I knew nothing about ashrams or Indian gurus. I had no idea what this entire scene was about. However, a friend saw my state and suggested, "Before you do anything else, go there." This ashram is teeming with incredible people from all over the world. All of whom are thoroughly judging the space. I'm wondering what these individuals are doing here. It is all absurd. The teachers have died and are viewing videos, but they're all crammed in like a thousand people in this enormous hole. [17:54] As soon as the dead guru began speaking in the video, I stopped feeling that everything the person was saying was directed at me. I have this icy sensation of the hair at the back of my neck sticking up. And I begin to feel as if I agree with everything he says. It's as though he's staring directly at me. And speaking now to me was the oddest thing. However, I had no idea how to meditate. I closed my eyes and immediately felt at ease. I began to feel the expansion. I began to feel myself shifting away from the negativity that had been my typical state of Consciousness and toward the most profound form of consciousness. That is what I refer to as my awakening. Because I was so deeply ensconced in this peaceful realm, the hole was empty when I opened my eyes. [18:53] All of the thousands of people who had gathered had left, but I remained. Simply put, I was more at ease than I had ever been in my life. I had no idea what had happened. That day marked the start of my stay at the Ashram. As a result, I was lonely. I had no one to talk to. I went back to my hotel room and promptly fell asleep. The first thing I did when I awakened the following day was closing my eyes. I wanted to stay there since it had been such a beautiful moment of peace. I closed my eyes for two hours and meditated. I then went to the Ashram. And I found myself becoming increasingly engrossed in everything going on there. [19:50] While others struggled with meditation and sitting still, this young 22-year-old could sit for hours simply holding space, exploring my consciousness, exploring what it felt like to feel powerful and peaceful. To let that energy flow through you, dissolving fear, dissolving smallness, dissolving anger, pain, and confusion, all of which dissolve in the face of our true nature, which is our soul essence. That is how it evolved. It was merely a chance, but I took advantage of it. I feel that some of us are given opportunities in life. However, we passed up those opportunities. But I clutched all those opportunities with both freaking hands and surfed that wave until today. [20:57] How did you start finding the ways to go back to the world that allowed you to become a leader who makes a living, helping other people live better? After six months at this Ashram with the teacher who died, I felt as if I needed a teacher in his body. I wanted someone with whom I could dig and ask questions, such as what is all this enlightenment nonsense, and so on. I was able to comprehend everything fully. [21:19] So I went to this other location where the teacher was still alive, with a smaller crowd. When I arrived, the guy stated that I had met the person and that a few minutes later, I was invited to this small room where he would meet with new individuals. And he told me in the first meeting, you're going to offer Satsang, and he laughed because Satsang back then meant these sessions where people would sit and ask him questions, and he would support and help them. [21:54]When it came to meditation, I found it to be effortless. In that first meeting, he saw something in me that I couldn't have seen or even thought of, so that was the first seed of this concept. I believe because I had a distinct talent. So he planted that seed, and when he died five years later, it was crystal clear to me that it was time to share what I had learned. And I could tell I had learned a lot because I had so much more laughter, joy, and enjoyment in my life, and I could make bold decisions and do new things. I was able to pick up on those messages by going into my head and listening to my heart and following the counsel of my soul. [23:24] I was invited to Germany, Switzerland, France, Holland, and Italy. All of these different countries just happened to be asking me, and they were organizing the events, and all I had to do was fly and be there, and then they would do it on a donation basis, and then they would give me the money that people donated. That's how I got started. That's when my gift began. [24:35] What are the things that you're creating that you're excited about that help people? I'm looking forward to seeing more leaders worldwide who have realized the strength that lies within their hearts. My purpose is to help others feel peaceful, powerful, and joyous in the present moment, regardless of what is going on around them. It's your right as a human being. You were born as that essence, and you will leave as that essence to feel love, be grounded, and feel plentiful. [25:12] Assisting others in returning to themselves and then urging them to share that message throughout the world through their example. Allowing yourself and doing your passion in life, is a component of that example. So, instead of being, "Look, I'm just going to make money and have my passion over here," how can you make that work? I believe that more people should be earning money doing what they enjoy. But it all starts with performing the inner work to remove the negative thoughts that you can't, that you can't be one of those individuals, that it's just for a select few. [26:07] I'm interested in inspiring individuals to tap into their actual potential and a powerful mission, which is something they're passionate about, altering, changing, and being a part of a positive global discourse and elevated space that they build in themselves, and then in their communities. [27:29] My mission is to awaken more people to their potential and power and empower them to share it with the rest of the world. I love the notion of constructing "centers" around the world where people can come together physically in a physical space to heal, transform, enlighten, and play, as well as share ideas and initiatives. So I'd want to adopt the Mahima approach and open up a few locations throughout the world, in nature, and perhaps also in some major cities where people need what we do and meet people personally. Everyone will, indeed, be online, but in my vision, we do online, but then we go on spectacular excursions offline.

How deep are your pockets? Are they big enough to carry all the things you need? Your money, keys and mobile phone? If you're a woman, the answer is most likely a no. This little pouch has a lot to say about gender roles and a woman's right to financial independence. We hear about the great divide in pocket designs that has existed for hundreds of years with Ariane Fennetaux, author of The Pocket: A Hidden History of Women's Lives, 1660–1900. We take a trip to London's V&A Museum to see how pockets – or a lack of them – led to the billion-dollar handbag industry, and we hear from Indian fashion designer Taarini Sarif on her fight for pocket justice.

This is reading of a selection of Ma's poems for meditation and contemplation. Sri Brahmajna Ma (21 February 1880 – 5 November 1934) was an Indian advaitin saint from East Bengal. What little is known about her reveals her as an illumined soul who was established in non-dual realization. Like Ramana Maharshi, she had no guru, but attained enlightenment through her own efforts at self-inquiry.
This episode presents a micro-history of contemporary Indian kitchen design, as told by Manju Sara Rajan, the editor of a prominent design magazine, and Madhav Raman, an award-winning architect in New Delhi. We look at what lies behind the urban, aspirational dream of two kitchens — one visible and one concealed — which has roots in a historical wet and dry kitchen binary. We also look at what interventions open and modular kitchens have made in this history, and what it means for gender and caste politics that still lie at the heart of Indian kitchen design. How do urban Indians negotiate the waves of aromas and the inevitability of oil splatters that come with making Indian food with their desire to showcase their Scandinavian-inspired kitchens in India all at once? We talk about how in urban India, the aspiration is really to have it all.

What's up to my tremulous tree swallows and concordant cassowaries! Welcome back to the BNP and thank you for joining! To my patrons, y'all are the seed syllable in my mantra meditation, thank you for the kundalini bliss tingles! This week's episode is an exercise in the yin-yang style weaving of opposites. (This is apropos, as this week's featured veggie, the Vishuddhi chakra, harmonizes opposite thought patterns via the purifying filter of the throat center.) You already know, we've got those absurdist audio morsels you know and love. We've got an update on Major Biden, the feistiest and most fun first doggo ever, who kept biting secret service chuds (folks, can we blame him?). And finally, for our most delicious veggies this week, we continue along the path of chakra progression, alighting upon our 5th chakra, the sublimating vibrational vortex of Vishuddhi, the Throat Chakra, whose seed syllable is HAM. Vishuddhi, or throat chakra, is the purification center of our energy system, a sort of Brita filter for our voice. In Sanskrit, Suddhi means to purify, and Chakra means a wheel or vortex or energy. Vishuddhi chakra is thus a filter for our communications with the world and the cosmos. Thus, it can be a source of divine nectar or a well of poison (you decide by your vibes!). In the Indian mythology, Lord Shiva is said to have drank the poison of a great snake to save the world, which can be seen as a blue tinge in his throat. The sage who meditates on Vishuddhi chakra becomes eloquent and wise, enjoys uninterrupted peace of mind, learns about past, present and future, becomes adept at magickal and occult practices, and stays free of diseases and sorrow, so that their words may radiate power and positivity, for the benefit of all beings.

Mangoes inspire passion, particularly in India, which is home to hundreds of varieties of the fruit. They are celebrated in Indian music, poetry, and art; they are mentioned in Hindu and Buddhist religious texts as well as the Kama Sutra; and Indian expats will even pay hundreds of dollars for a single, air-freighted box of their favorite variety. But while the average red-skinned mango in the American grocery store is certainly pretty, they're disappointingly bland and crunchy. This episode, we embark on a mango quest to discover how a mango should taste, why the American mango lost its flavor, and how it might just get it back. This is a story that involves a dentist from New Jersey, George W. Bush, and some Harley Davidsons, as well as a full-on mango orgy—so listen in! Learn more about your ad choices.

Holmberg's Morning Sickness - Brady Report - Tuesday January 18, 2022
Growing up on a Peckham council estate with his musician mother and a 'Lizzie-Anne the transvestite' childcarer led to Pete Bennett's own love of quirk and music Now an actor, director, voice over artist and of course musician (with his band Lovedogz), he first came to public attention in 2006's Big Brother and really opened up the conversation about Tourette's Syndrome. Pete tells hilarious stories about the crazy acid trip at a psychedelic rave which gave him a vision that he would win Big Brother, being suckered in by a stoned agent with nefarious intentions in Hollywood, surviving a forest fire on a weed farm in Santa Cruz, witnessing a chicken sacrifice in a Mexican church, narrowly avoiding eating a Golden Retriever in Vietnam and much more.

In Vancouver and the little known city of Surrey, violent gang wars between rival factions in the Indo-Canadian Sikh community has seen upwards of 200 young men killed in the last 25 years, as bloody battles fought in nightclubs and bars have seen gunshots ring out as crews of contract killers make their presence felt. Surprisingly, many of these gang members come from middle class families in well to do neighborhoods. The community traces this all back to one man: the swaggering and deadly Bindy Johal, who issued threats live in-studio on newscasts, got off on a murder trial after one of his co-defendants seduced a juror, and assembled his own hit squad that did dozens of contract killings. To some he's a folk hero, but to most of the community he's a terrifying scourge whose brutal legacy refuses to fade away.

‘The First Fleet' - the eleven ships carrying around 1400 people from Britain, most of whom were convicted criminals - landed in New South Wales on 18th January, 1788.Australia had been home to indigenous people for at least 50,000 years - but was a barren and shocking destination for 'the poms', who'd endured an epic 252-day voyage to get there; a journey about which Robert Hughes wrote: “before them stretched the awesome lonely void of the Indian and Southern oceans, and beyond that lay nothing they could imagine.”In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly explore how Captain Arthur Phillip motivated his prisoners to build a new settlement; unpick what Captain Cook got wrong about Botany Bay; and explain why the descendants of convicts in modern-day Oz maintain a certain swagger… Further Reading:• ‘From Captain Cook to the First Fleet: how Botany Bay was chosen over Africa as a new British penal colony' (The Conversation, 2020): https://theconversation.com/from-captain-cook-to-the-first-fleet-how-botany-bay-was-chosen-over-africa-as-a-new-british-penal-colony-128002• ‘Australian Penal Colonies' (Simple History, 2020): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS1072MshS0• ‘Australian Genocide: How It Happened And How It Haunts Us To This Day' (All That's Interesting, 2016): https://allthatsinteresting.com/australia-genocide For bonus material and to support the show, visit Patreon.com/RetrospectorsWe'll be back tomorrow!

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 17th January. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. Welcome to a new Patreon Executive Producer MARK RICHARDS ELECTRIC CAR SALES PASS ‘TIPPING POINT' IN SWITZERLAND - The number of new electric cars sold in Switzerland continues to accelerate – even faster than predicted, according to the Touring Club Switzerland (TCS) car association. - For the September to November period, fully electric vehicles accounted for 18.3% of new registrations and plug-in vehicles (electric and plug-in hybrids) hit a record 28% - The TCS described the 18.3% threshold as a milestone. Electric vehicles had clearly gone beyond a “tipping point” and moved into the mainstream, it said. - In Switzerland incentives for plug-in vehicles are not coordinated and vary between cantons.

It's not certain which models would provide the option, but it's notable that some trim levels of the Ioniq 5 and other Hyundai cars include NFC for a (currently proprietary) digital key. - CarKey (and its Android equivalent) treats the phone more like a physical key. You just have to bring your phone or Apple Watch to the door handle to unlock it, and you can even place your phone in a given area to start the car. People with ultra-wideband iPhones (such as the iPhone 11 and newer) can even leave their phone in their pocket when opening and starting the vehicle.

In images and video posted to Twitter on Friday, Gapinski shows his Tesla running CarPlay on the display of his vehicle. The clips, spotted by Tesla North show the feature as being quite functional, including Apple Maps and Apple Music. - Gapinski instead bypasses Wi-Fi restrictions so that the Tesla's browser can connect to a secondary device. In turn, the browser displays what is shown on the host device as a live video feed. - Currently in its early stages, the developer says he plans to release it to the public "when it's polished." - the project actually relies on a Raspberry Pi running a custom build of Android. That build runs an interface that works with CarPlay, enabling Apple's UI to be usable from the larger screen.

Tritium plans to invest the capital generated by the IPO in its expansion to three global manufacturing facilities and the development of global sales and service teams. - . Going public by merging with an already listed company has become the most utilized method for electric mobility companies to shorten the lengthy IPO process in the US. - Tritium currently has manufacturing facilities in Australia and is currently building manufacturing facilities in the USA. Tritium CEO Jane Hunter recently told Bloomberg that Tritium is ramping up speed to get its US manufacturing facility ready Original Source : https://www.electrive.com/2022/01/14/tritium-goes-public-to-expand-to-three-plants-globally/ 400,000 UNITS OF SAIC-GM-WULING'S MINI EV WERE SOLD IN 2021 - General Motors' Chinese joint venture SAIC-GM-Wuling was the number one purveyor of electric vehicles in China last year, selling nearly 400,000 units of its sensible MINI EV hatchback. - numbers published by the China Passenger Car Association, SAIC-GM-Wuling sold a total of 395,451 examples of its MINI EV between January and December last year. This made it the best-selling EV in China ahead of the BYD Qin, which sold 187,227 units. - The MINI EV is priced from the equivalent of just over $4,000 USD in China, with each unit carrying a minuscule profit margin of $14 for SAIC-GM-Wuling. While the margins are small, sales of the vehicle allow the automaker to earn carbon credits, saving it money in the long term.

The cars will be made by a unit of Dongfeng Motor Group Co - Although Japan isn't currently a huge market for electric vehicles — EV penetration runs at just 1% versus 30% in some cities in China — Chinese automakers sense an opportunity. - "If Japanese companies just stick to producing cars, foreign companies will come in,” said Hiroyasu Koma, CEO of folofly, the company working with SBS and Dongfeng Motor on the former's fleet-electrification strategy.

BIO: Dr. Harish Pant brings thirty-eight years of global and Indian experience spanning aerospace and defense, aviation, automotive, steel, engineering plastics, lightweighting and composites, industrial design, engineering services, and infra-trade. STORY: Harish was a rising star, excelling in his profession and the youngest department head. Out of nowhere, a senior person was transferred to his department and became the new head. Harish was made the assistant department head. He didn't understand why this happened and wasted a whole year trying to prove himself. LEARNING: You've got to know when something is not worth your time, energy, and attention and, therefore, walk away. “Attention investment is the most fundamental thing a person can do to bring their awareness alive.”Dr. Harish Pant Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/harishpant/ (Dr. Harish Pant) brings thirty-eight years of global and Indian experience spanning aerospace and defense, aviation, automotive, steel, engineering plastics, lightweighting and composites, industrial design, engineering services, and infra-trade. He is a contemporary thought leader with the dexterity of technologies (Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and IoT) and has worked with numerous global companies. Harish has also created a platform: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13936627/ (Utkarsh - Uttarakhand Youth Development), and he's working towards the development of youth in the state. Worst investment everAbout 25 years ago, Harish was department head for a while when he learned that a senior-level person who had joined the company a month back had been transferred to his department. He was now the department head, and Harish was pushed to position number two. This happened when he was a rising star and the youngest of the department heads. So this demotion came as a shocker to him. Harish tried to find out from management why he'd been demoted, and they told him that it was just temporary and he'd be well taken care of. But he was not convinced. He tried everything he could to convince management that he was the right candidate for the job. This went on for months. Harish placed his entire focus on trying to prove himself. He stayed at the company even when he knew he should leave. Eventually, Harish quit when he got another opportunity, but he feels the time he put his attention to proving his worth was his worst investment ever. Lessons learnedThings will be beyond your control during your career, and that's ok. Andrew's takeawaysYou've got to know when something is not worth your time, energy, and attention and, therefore, walk away. Actionable adviceAnalyze the whole situation and ask yourself if it's workable. You must also know who you are, so reflect on the person you are. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsHarish's goal for the next 12 months is to help people transform their lives through a complete process that he has created.

The Indian independence campaigner, Subhas Chandra Bose, sided with Hitler's axis powers in World War Two to try to free his country from British rule. We'll hear from his great-niece about why she thinks that if he had lived he could have changed the course of India's history. We'll also hear from Dr Shruti Kapila of Cambridge University about why India's current government is celebrating Bose. Plus a nuclear scientist tells us about his role in a secret project to make safe vast swathes of nuclear-contaminated land in post-Soviet Kazakhstan - as well as preventing nuclear material from falling into the wrong hands. Also, the reckless actions which led to the sinking of the Costa Concordia cruise ship, the first woman to have silicone breast implants and Malick Sidibé, the Malian photographer whose work altered people's perceptions about 1960s Africa.

Authorities say nearly 60 attacks on state systems were thwarted last month alone. Plus, French electricity provider EDF will have to sell more power generated from its nuclear plants to competitors at cheaper prices as the government seeks to limit the rise in household energy costs.

Panelists Dr. Holly Jean Buck of the University at Buffalo and Chris Barnard of the American Conservation Coalition join host Radhika Moolgavkar of Nori for this policy-focused episode of Carbon Removal Newsroom. In April of 2021, Raj Kumar Singh, an Indian energy Minister, said at a UN conference that rich countries need to be net-negative and remove atmospheric co2 to account for historical emissions. While decades of climate diplomacy focused on emissions to come, Singh worked to shift the conversation towards pollution already emitted. Later last year, journalist and author of popular climate book The Uninhabitable Earth David Wallace-Wells penned Climate Reparations in New York Magazine. The long-form piece connected the inequitable effects of climate change, more drastically and quickly hitting tropical and global south countries, with the political outcomes made possible by carbon removal technology. He points out that half of emissions come from 10% of the world's population and that climate change has already decreased the GDP of some global south countries, while it has increased GDPs in the global North. This dynamic will continue and will widen already stark global wealth inequalities. Wells reviews the field of technical CDR and finds that while it could present temptation for delay, it also provides revolutionary possibilities if historical emitters are made to pay to remove their pollution. He calls this ‘climate reparations' and quotes philosopher Olufemi Taiwo (who coined that term) “It's just so clear to me that carbon removal is squarely the kind of thing that fits into the reparations framework.” In this episode, we discuss the Wallace-Wells' piece and zoom in on climate reparations and climate colonialism, defining these phrases in more depth and explaining how these approaches might impact policies and institutions. We also discuss the idea that carbon removal is not limited by physics, so what is carbon removal scaling limited by? We round out the episode with the good news and the interesting news of the week, then we bid a warm farewell to our beloved co-host Holly, who will be going on sabbatical for the year. We will miss you Holly and look forward to seeing you back on the show! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/carbonremovalnewsroom/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/carbonremovalnewsroom/support
Representatives of the Indian and British governments have held a first day of talks over a free trade deal, potentially worth billions of dollars. The UK's Secretary of State for International Trade, Anne-Marie Trevelyan, told us that the proposed agreement will bring growth opportunities to British businesses. Plus, a dispute over lithium mining concessions granted by Chile's outgoing president Sebastian Pinera has sparked fierce debate in recent days. Chilean economist Francisco Meneses tells us about the importance of lithium to the country's economy, and how incoming head of state Gabriel Boric is walking a tightrope when it comes to building a political coalition. And we're joined by Cary Leahey of the New York-based Decision Economics for a look at what's been happening in the US markets on Thursday.
Sath started a business, did great, and then scaled way too quickly and failed miserably in two years by not listening and being stubborn. Sath then took a year while wholesaling cars to truly find himself and really sit with his insecurities to really find his purpose. Sath then began wholesaling and sourcing cars for other dealers and in COVID-19 found the need of how much impact he could be making by running a national wholesale lead generation business that gets leads and closes them for a nationwide dealer network that he has. Now, Sath's team ison projection to facilitate these leads into closing over $100,000,000 in cars bought through our lead generation this year.

Bio written by her friend: “Sam, 47, has an interesting and diverse background, having Indian and English heritage and growing up between the UK, USA and Middle East. Over the past few years she has set herself multiple challenges raising money for charity or just doing for fun. In 2019, Sam set herself 12 challenges: Cold Water Swimming Championships 10K Winter run Climbing one of the more challenging routes up Snowdon Swimathon (5k swim) Great Northern SwimRun (Lake Windermere) Selkie Henley Classic - night / dawn swim SwimRun Tooting Bec Running a half marathon Not drinking any alcohol for 28 days Marathon run North Downs 50k walk Trekking two marathons in two days through the desert Unfortunately in late 2020, she was diagnosed with stage four cancer which was a huge blow to her, her family and friends. I certainly thought that would be the end of her adventuring and it felt immensely sad. However Sam has a remarkable positive energy and outlook on life and has been determined to carry on as normal. This year, while managing ongoing cancer treatment, she has already completed the Arcticbear swim challenge over winter, the 100km jurassic coast walk challenge, the great north 5km swim in lake Windermere, the lake Windermere trail walk challenge, The Selkie Henley classic 2km upstream swim at dawn, and Henley mile swim (I've probably missed more!). I have been lucky enough to share some of these adventures with her and have learnt so much along the way. From learning to enjoy those precious moments in the outdoors or in the water, to persevering even when things seem impossible. I think a lot of your listeners would benefit from hearing her story, knowing where she has come from, what she is battling today and her vision for the future.” New episodes of the Tough Girl Podcast go live every Tuesday at 7am UK time - Hit the subscribe button so you don't miss out.

Full Text of ReadingsWednesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 307All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys“God closes a door and then opens a window,” people sometimes say when dealing with their own disappointment or someone else's. That was certainly true in Marguerite's case. Children from European as well as Native American backgrounds in 17th-century Canada benefited from her great zeal and unshakable trust in God's providence. Born the sixth of 12 children in Troyes, France, Marguerite at the age of 20 believed that she was called to religious life. Her applications to the Carmelites and Poor Clares were unsuccessful. A priest friend suggested that perhaps God had other plans for her. In 1654, the governor of the French settlement in Canada visited his sister, an Augustinian canoness in Troyes. Marguerite belonged to a sodality connected to that convent. The governor invited her to come to Canada and start a school in Ville-Marie (eventually the city of Montreal). When she arrived, the colony numbered 200 people with a hospital and a Jesuit mission chapel. Soon after starting a school, she realized her need for coworkers. Returning to Troyes, she recruited a friend, Catherine Crolo, and two other young women. In 1667, they added classes at their school for Indian children. A second trip to France three years later resulted in six more young women and a letter from King Louis XIV, authorizing the school. The Congregation of Notre Dame was established in 1676 but its members did not make formal religious profession until 1698 when their Rule and constitutions were approved. Marguerite established a school for Indian girls in Montreal. At the age of 69, she walked from Montreal to Quebec in response to the bishop's request to establish a community of her sisters in that city. By the time she died, she was referred to as the “Mother of the Colony.” Marguerite was canonized in 1982. Reflection It's easy to become discouraged when plans that we think that God must endorse are frustrated. Marguerite was called not to be a cloistered nun but to be a foundress and an educator. God had not ignored her after all. Saint of the DayCopyright Franciscan Media
Broadcast classic- (Click here for original)Post-show Note: Of course Belizian believers are not the only ones to commit this type of sin. For example, a fundamentalist minister in California, Pastor Jeff B., told his congregation that he had become a nudist. (Thankfully he was defrocked by his ordinaining authority.) After he left the church, he began running a nudist facility. Since the fall of mankind, Satan has been trying to undo what God did when He clothed Adam and Eve. From John Wesley's Journal: Of pictures I do not pretend to be a judge; but there is one, by Paul Rubens, which particularly struck me, both with the design and the execution of it. It is Zacharias and Elisabeth, with John the Baptist, two or three years old, coming to visit Mary, and our Lord sitting upon her knee. The passions are surprisingly expressed, even in the children; but I could not see either the decency or common sense of painting them stark naked. Nothing can defend or excuse this; it is shockingly absurd, even an Indian being the judge. I allow, a man who paints thus may have a good hand but certainly no brains.

Welcome back to the uncurated life podcast. Before I even get into this episode, I wanted to give you a bit of a trigger warning for anybody who struggles with, talk about weight. Talk about dieting, talk about exercise, talk about disordered eating and all of that. I will be talking about my thoughts on how wellness and dieting seem to be. Kind of interchanged with each other right now, is this all my own thoughts and my own experiences, but I know that for some people, this can be a conversation that can be really hard for them. So I'm just letting you know, upfront that if you need to skip this episode, no hard feelings. Totally understand. But I wanted to say that upfront because I love you. Let's get going. Not that this is your first time here. My name is Cindy Guentert-Baldo this is kind of a heavy one to get started on, but it also kind of gives you an idea of sort of the, the different ways that this podcast kind of takes shape. I love to talk about how we live our lives on the internet. And for me, that can show up in some sassy molassey and that can also show up in some kind of heavier conversations. And today's definitely going to be on the heavier side, but it is something that has been weighing on me quite a bit. Recently, no pun intended. And that is, is wellness. The new diet. Imagine. Wellness and diet, both being in quotes. Now I had already had this thought and I will kind of talk about that a little bit in a hot minute here, but if you don't already listen to it, maintenance phase is a fantastic podcast where they dissect a lot of things around diet, culture and wellness culture, and it's fascinating. And it has helped me really unpack some of the stuff that I have had ingrained in me for a long ass time. And. I think that if you haven't listened to it, I'll make sure to link it in the show notes. There talk about wellness and diet has been really instrumental for me in solidifying some of the thoughts I was already having. Although I will also say that I don't have very solid thoughts on this. This is more of a stream of consciousness conversation that brings in my experiences and my thoughts on the subject. And this will be an ongoing conversation, I think, cause it's fascinating to me lately, especially as it pertains to myself, my body image. And how some of those things can impact my kids. So I guess a good place to start is my history with dieting. I'm 42 years old. Well, I'm almost 42. I keep saying I'm 42, but I haven't quite turned 42 yet, but I'm getting there. I grew up in the eighties in the nineties. Dieting was everywhere, but it wasn't really something that was impressed upon me, partly because I grew. In a fairly poor household. And there wasn't really any conversation about dieting because the conversation was often about. W what kind of food we were going to have for dinner? Like where are we going to have to go get the free government food? Or where are we going to have to get something on clearance at the grocery store that my mom was going to have to make stretch? It, it wasn't like a, it wasn't a real conversation in our house. If my mom was into diet culture. Honestly, I don't remember it now. My sisters could totally contradict me on this. I also was a very self-absorbed teenager, especially, but I don't remember my mom being super into, into diet culture for one. My mom, as a profession was a cook. She did was a kitchen manager at a restaurant at the cafeteria. She worked in various kitchens throughout her life and loved to cook. Unfortunately, when it came to our meals, she was burned out on cooking for the most part, and also trying to stretch a very, very meager budget when it came to our food. But she wasn't afraid of. On top of that, my mom was a bigger lady. She was not skinny by any stretch of the means. She was a much a bigger person, but she seemed to have quite a bit, at least again, from my memory of a fairly good body image of herself, partly because my dad thought that she was just absolutely gorgeous and. They may have fought like cats and dogs, but they also were high school sweethearts and super into each other. And so, again, from my perspective, I'm not speaking for my mom and my mom has passed away. So she can't really speak for herself anymore. But from what I remember observing. I didn't get a lot of my issues with food from my mom's specifically when I was in high school, I did have body image issues, but most of my body image issues were surrounded by the fact that I was six, two. I grew a foot and a half in a year. And when you AE are super tall female and be. It's like the mid nineties and they haven't really started selling like long sizes and a lot of the super discount stores, which is all we could afford to shop at. I wound up having to do things like wear men's jeans because they were the only ones that weren't high waters on me. So most of my body image issues that I remember were surrounded by, um, how tall I was not my weight. I honestly don't really remember being super. Annoyed by my weight in high school, what I will say. And again, this can go back to my self absorbed. Anise is that both of my sisters tended towards my mom's body shapes. They were both are both larger than me. And maybe part of me was like, oh, well, I don't have to worry about that. Cause I'm skinnier than them, which is a shitty thing to say, but. I can totally see myself sort of internalizing that. I just don't remember any real issues that I had with body image that wasn't around, both my height and the fact that I have never been able to give my hair. Like I didn't even know. Straight irons were like flat irons were a thing. I just thought people had naturally smooth hair and my shitty hair and my shitty teeth were just because I was poor. I found out later. Yeah, that is part of it because I couldn't afford the things to make them fancy, but it wasn't that fancy people, rich people just happen to be more fancy know they can afford the ways to be more fancy suffice it to say, I didn't start struggling with weight until I got. It really started when I was in my first marriage. And some of it came from comments that my ex-husband made, that had to do with his standards for beauty. And they weren't about me being. Overweight. They were about me having smaller boobs basically. And I internalized a lot of that. I don't think he really knew when he told me those things, that that was going to impact me for years to come. I think for him, he was just making an offhanded comment, but. For me, they did impact me for a long time. And the, and again, this goes back to a lot of what I've been thinking about lately, which is it's very easy for us to make offhanded comments. About ourselves, about other people that we don't think are a big deal, but there may be people overhearing what we're saying or that we're saying them to, whether it's our kids, whether it's other people in our lives, whatever the case may be. And so what to us, does it seem a big deal because we've already internalized it or it just doesn't seem like a big deal to us. It could be really awful for somebody else. And that's just been something that I've been grappling with lately. Again, that particular comment did not make me really worry about my weight. The worrying about my weight began when I was pregnant and it wasn't even when I was pregnant, my first pregnancy with cat, I went 41 weeks. I gained 70 pounds and when I had cat, cat was a little under 10 pounds. I was having a lot of trouble dropping the weight at first. And I wanted to, I wanted to just get back to my normal and believe me, my normal has Al was always at the time, like 180 pounds. Again, I'm six, two. I wasn't ever expecting to be super, super skinny or anything. I just didn't want to be where I was at the time. So I went on weight Watchers for the first time. And this first round of WeightWatchers that I was on was successful for me. I wound up losing the majority of that weight and feeling really good about it. I wasn't exercising all that much cause exercise and I have never been good friends with each other, but I was like just really counting calories and restricting the food I was eating and it worked. And then I got pregnant again. And this time with RJ. Because of various circumstances, which I can totally go into in another video. A lot of it was my fault. Uh, we wound up, I wasn't working and we wound up having a lot of trouble, like with money in general, in the early days of my pregnancy with RJ, I wound up going without food for a week because I was so worried that we wouldn't have enough money for food and for gas to get me to the job I was going to. And I ended up blacking out at my training. So. Suffice it to say that even when I started working again, I did not have either the time because I had a toddler or the disposable income to indulge all of my cravings. When I was pregnant with cat dude, I was all about the Wienerschnitzel, corn dogs and shit, or chili dogs, and shit like that. But with RJ, I only gained 20 pounds. And then on top of that, he was almost 11 pounds when he was born. So that to me felt like, like triumphant, but I did again, try to go on weight Watchers to lose the weight a second time. And this time I struggled with it. However, I discovered that there was another way that one could lose weight. Enter the time in my life. When I was below my goal weight, I was the skinniest I had ever been in my life. Not only that people were telling me how good I looked, I was also the most miserable I had ever been in my life. It was when things were really bad between my ex-husband and I, and I was a manager at trader Joe's and I was working 50 plus hours a week on a schedule where I barely saw my. It was chain smoking. I was only eating basically goldfish, crackers and drinking. Coca-Cola. That was it. That was basically my life now. No, at this point, I didn't know I had polycystic kidney disease, but my blood pressure, it was only just then starting to skyrocket. Amazing. I can't imagine why. Right. But like, you could see my hips and I felt really, really like, like, like Zoolander would say really, really good looking, but I was utterly miserable. This is a very self-destructive period of my life. I was drinking too much. All sorts of shit happened again. I might go into this more and more detail one day, but that's not the subject of this podcast. The best weight I'd ever been in my life was the most unhealthy I'd ever been in my life. And yet I was still proud of myself for being that weight. And for a long time afterwards, once I had gotten out of that marriage, once Jesse and I had started dating and then living together and I put on like the happy, the happy weight, the weight that comes when one stops, one, quit smoking for one and is not like completely and utterly lost. Depressed and just fucked up for that whole time. Yeah, I put on the weight, but I would keep idealizing this ideal of myself when I was a super skinny, but also really unhealthy. This was the first time it began to occur to me, but not in the front of my mind, in the back of my mind that it's not about how much you weigh when it comes to how healthy you are. That doesn't mean that there can't be health problems that come with being. In the upper limits of weight and there's things that come with being in the lower ends of the weight spectrum or whatever. I'm not saying that, but what I am saying is that how much someone weighs is not necessarily an indicator of their health. There are other indicators that are much more obvious making assumptions about someone's health based on their weight is foolish because that doesn't tell you anything. But at the time, I didn't quite think about that. Now I was never a diet cycler, but in the years after I got together with Jess, I put back on weight because I had quit smoking cold Turkey right before we moved in together. And then. Generally speaking, I was much happier. So I was not like subsiding on crackers and soda anymore. There were times when I would return to my old favorite, the weight Watchers that I did, the whole 30, my kids will make jokes about that to this day, because they were like, mom, are you fucking kidding me? I flirted with plenty of diets, but I didn't. Um, really go down the super high protein end of things. Mostly because again, knowing that I had kidney disease, that just seemed like a bad idea at the time. However, in the time of this timeframe, I began to notice certain wording around dieting coming from my diet fat free, you know, zero points kind of WeightWatchers lifestyle. I began to notice with some of my friends. Th their wording was different, but it felt the same very specifically. It was around things like eating, clean, eating, lean, feeling, lean, feeling light, you know? Yeah, cleansing toxins. My first real exposure to this shit started happening. It was happening to me and a group of my friends and I immediately was like, what the fuck does that even mean? It just sounds like diet talked. Clothed differently. And I had evidence of that fairly soon. I had a friend who blacked out from not eating enough in there eating lean phase or whatever. And so I was like, okay, this, this is kind of concerning me. But again, it didn't cause me to take a look at what I was trying to do. Like, okay, this person is saying they want to eat clean and feel light. And I'm like, I'm kind of worried about you, man. But then I turn around and I'm like, how many? Zero point snacks can I get in today? Right. So that all leads me to the most recent years where I've really, I've really kind of changed my thought process on all of it. One of the things that changed that thought process is having polycystic kidney disease. Literally because my kidneys are massive. They make me look pregnant and has taken me a long time. I'm talking up until recent days where I can look at myself in the mirror and not completely hate the way I look. I recognize why I look the way I look and. I am trying real hard to love my body, but I think I've at least gotten to a point where I liked my body. I don't love the way it feels a lot at the time, but I also am at a point now there's nothing like fucking chronic kidney disease to let you know that when you eat something that your body doesn't like, your body lets you know, real quickly and that's where I'm at right now. So it's a balance of how nauseated I am. Most of the time. And how certain things that I tend to go towards when I'm nauseated might make me feel like shit. Maybe because of my medications, maybe because of my kidney function, it depends on the thing, but it's, it's helped me work my way through it. I don't recommend this. I don't recommend chronic genetic illness as a way to help you figure out your. Your issues with diet culture, plot twist, though, as I was starting to come to terms with my body, both how it felt and how it looked. I started to also notice at the same time that all of those things that were beginning to irk me years ago with my friends about eating clean and all of that, we're starting to take over the fucking world of dieting and so on and so forth. Thanks to things like goop and all sorts of other shit. This idea of eating clean wellness, flushing your toxins, and. People talking about flushing, their toxins is one of the things that annoys the everliving shit out of me. If you have working kidneys, that's their job and your liver's job as somebody who does not have very well working kidneys when I need, when there comes a day, when I need to flush my toxins, that's done with dialysis. So miss me with your fucking talks and flushing. Thank you very much. Moving forward. So noticing that, that eating clean the way that instead of talking about going on a diet, now, people were talking about improving their wellness and an eating clean and restricting carbs and whatever the case may be, it's they wouldn't say restricting, they would say I'm avoiding carbs or whatever. The language softened, it felt a lot more like Gwenyth Paltrow, the way that you would talk about things. And then. I began to notice how I was talking about food around my kids. When I talked about being bad, when it came to eating something, when I talked about. Having a cheat day or whatever. I didn't ever notice those things. But remember what I said before about comments that you think are not innocuous impacting people harder when one of your teenagers struggles with disordered eating, especially around avoiding and restricting foods. You begin to recognize whenever that stuff starts to come out of your mouth and that began to happen for me. And so, even though I felt like I was coming to better terms with how I saw my body, I realized that I had a lot of the training retraining to do and how I talked about shit in general, because some of those things that to me were kind of throwaway comments. We're impacting my kid in a way that was forming their opinions of themselves so that as they went into their life, they might change how they feel about certain things. Now that's kind of where I'm at now. So that gives you sort of the beginning to the, the current state of how I am feeling like I'm more at peace with my body. Not at peace of the fact that my body is shutting down, but at peace with what I need to do in order to feel less shit. And not worry about the rest of it. That's where I'm at right now. Like currently I need to start reducing my salt according to my nephrologist. So that's something to think about, but not because I'm worried about being fat beat because I need to reduce salt for my blood pressure sake because I have kidney disease. So I'm comfortable with where I'm at with my body. I mean, I'd be comfortable in my body, but that is reasons beyond my control. But what I am comfortable with is how I feel about my body. And I have hard days. But they're fewer than they used to be. But right now, currently, what I am worried about is my kids, not just the one, discover this, dealing with disordered eating, but both of them and the images they're taking into the world, as well as really thinking about like the things that are so deep inside of me, that I don't even notice them. I want to remove as many landmines as possible, both for my kids and for myself. Anyway, now that we've talked about that, I want to talk about a few things that, that, um, are kind of at the forefront of my brain when it comes to this whole idea of wellness versus diet and how they're both just basically insidious. One thing for me is the obsession with food. And this is something that my kid is working on, right. This obsession with eating the right foods. Which is now it's like, let's eat the clean foods. Let's eat the non, the non-toxic foods, whatever used to be let's eat the fat free foods or the no points foods or the no carbs foods or the low carbs foods or whatever the language has changed. It used to be like, they would say like fat free or low fat or whatever, but now it's about eating clean. I keep coming back to that, but that's like eating clean and wellness are like fucking two sides of the same goddamn. I'm not saying eating less processed foods is terrible. It's a, it's fine. It's a good thing. But when you start assigning morality to your food, that's when we start heading into trouble territory. Assigning some foods as good. And some foods is bad. Some foods as naughty in some foods is nice. Some foods is clean and some foods is dirty. That's assigning moral judgements to food that doesn't fucking exist. It's just food. And believe me, when I say it is just a first world problem too, because if you think about it, If you really wanted to improve, people's eating. If you really wanted to improve public health, if you really wanted to improve all of these things, if it wasn't about beauty standards, if it was about real overall health that we would be working on things like bringing accessible food to food deserts. Stopping equating obesity with health problems because really the health problems need to be addressed. The obesity is not the health problem. You can address it. If there's an issue that's causing like joint pain or whatever, but if you have health problems, doctors need to look at that first. And having access to things like open space, places for people to walk easily accessible things for people to do where they can move their body and making it so that moving your butt, like getting people, the clue that you just want to find a way to move your body, that you like, you don't have to punish yourself. Exercise. Shouldn't be punishment. I'm getting on a tangent tangent here, tirade. I'm very sorry about that. I'm actually not very sorry about that, hashtag, sorry, not sorry. I will say that aside from my own management of changing my language around food and exercise and trying to remove the morality from food, the other things that really, really piss me off are a, the way that people make assumptions about. Based on body size and that's gonna be an entirely different podcast. I can tell you from my own experience and from experience of my family members, the differences in ways one might get treated at the doctor's office based on how big you are, right? The way that you can't necessarily be diagnosed with an eating disorder. If you aren't at a certain BMI, which excludes everybody, who's not at a super low BMI who also has disordered eating. And then of course, there's my anger at companies selling us. Now it's wellness culture used to be diet culture. Now it's wellness culture companies sell it to us because the way you sell something to someone, as you identify the problem, and then you sell them a way to fix it. And so for company and wellness, dieting, all, that's a huge Indian. And so companies can make more money if they're selling a solutions to why we're fat solutions, to why we're unhealthy solutions, to help us with our wellness, as opposed to actually addressing the systemic things, donating money, or doing all the things advocating for government help for the. Actually will cause society as a better as a whole to be more well, we're selling us this thing that makes us feel like, well, if we do this and we eat clean and we remove all of our toxins and blah-blah-blah, then, then we might get closer to Gwyneth Paltrow. You know, I don't know. This is a big rant. You guys, I don't even think this is as organized as I wanted it to be, but we go back to my central thesis. Right? Is wellness the new diet? Yes. Yes, it is. I think that it feels like, and I got this from wellness, from wellness, from maintenance phase, they said something like, sometimes it feels like you just take a bunch of papers about, or like advertisements about diet and control F and replace all of the diet with wellness. And there you go. It's the same fucking shit. And I'm not saying taking care of yourself, self care, that sort of thing is not important. But what I am saying is that companies. And gurus and people trying to make money off of us capitalism if they take diet, which is an extremely, extremely lucrative industry. But it's starting to get a bad rap because dieting does not sound like the business in 2022. If they repackage it as wellness, suddenly people are willing to buy it again. I'm trying to be more discerning about that. And my hope is that if you struggle with this, that this might help you get a little bit of clarity towards being more discerning about it. And I know this was ramble-y, this was all over the place, but I needed to get some of this off my chest. I will be re-exploring this topic more in upcoming days or upcoming months, whatever.
