Welcome to the fifth episode of the Hali Hewa Podcast. ‘Hali Hewa' is a Swahili term for ‘climate ' and this podcast series is hosted and produced by Kenyan climate activist, Abigael Kima. In the lead up to the COP27 international climate negotiations, which are now just a month away, Abigael interviews African climate change experts and activists on the issues that matter most to them. Guests sign off each episode by sharing what they feel the COP27 conference must deliver on. Our guest today is Sofanit Mesfin. Sofanit is a gender specialist working as the Regional Gender and Social Inclusion Coordinator at Ripple Effect, formerly known as ‘Send A Cow'. Ripple Effect works with smallholder farmers to equip them with knowledge and skills enabling them to improve their livelihoods and thrive. Farmers working alongside Ripple Effect learn more, grow more and sell more. They can feed their families nutritious food, and by having a surplus to sell can invest in their farms, send their children to school and build sustainable agri-businesses. In this episode, Sofanit takes us through her journey working with women farmers in different African countries to deliver training programs that help them adapt to a changing climate. She explains how and why women and children are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change, and what Ripple Effect is doing to ease the burden on women, children and their households. Sofanit also explains how other stakeholders can come on board to support this kind of work, ensuring that more and more communities get support to build resilience and secure a healthy future for themselves and their children.

Lempus was not charged for the positive test but an AIU investigation into her explanation resulted in a tampering charge for which she was suspended.   U.S. American Women Dominate the 2022 World Beer Mile Title Thirteen countries battled in Belgium for this year's Beer Mile World Championship. The most important rule? Don't throw up. OCTOBER 17, 2022 BRIAN METZLER from OUTSIDE ONLINE   American Elizabeth Laseter and Canadian Corey Bellemore put on quite a show at the Beer Mile World Classic on Saturday afternoon in Leuven, Belgium. When it comes to chugging suds and running fast 400-meter laps around a track, they were the best-in-show among the 65 runners from 13 countries participating in the de facto Beer Mile World Championships.   Running a beer mile is simple: a runner chugs a 12-ounce (or 355ml) beer, runs one lap around a track and repeats that three more times, a beer for each lap, as fast as possible – all without having it come back up, what is politely referred to as a “reversal of fortune.” The clock stops for each runner after the fourth lap is completed, unless they spew, when an additional fifth 400-meter penalty lap is required.   There are only a few basic rules to keep these speedy time trials in Belgium from looking like raucous beer-guzzling scenes choreographed to polka music at Oktoberfest in Munich. One rule is to make sure the beer in each can is fully finished. A second rule is that each beer is completed within the 9-meter “chug zone,” between the waterfall starting line and the finish line of each lap.   Laseter is a competitive runner—she ran for Johns Hopkins University in college and runs for the Bat City Track Club running club in Austin, Texas. But the 33-year-old food writer and photographer is also an exceptional beer chugger, a critical skill when it comes to running a beer mile for the podium.   Unfortunately, Laseter—as well as several other top runners in the women's race—was flagged for appearing to step outside of the “chug zone” before she had finished drinking a beer at the start of her fourth lap, thus negating what would have been a world-record 6:15 mile and a 25-second victory.   Aside from that small hiccup, those who watched the livefeed of the event—yes, the beer mile world championships was broadcast via livefeed—had to admire her high-performance execution. (Her effort broke down to roughly 25-30 seconds of chugging while running a 5:45-5:50 mile.)   Not only was Laseter given an “unofficial” finish, but so too was runner-up Laura Riches of the United Kingdom, who originally finished second in 6:30. That left American runner Melanie Pozdol, the third runner to cross the line in 6:41, as the one who was declared the winner of the women's race. (Her pace was fast, too, roughly the equivalent of a 6-minute mile with 40 seconds of chugging beers.)   What's New in the 303:   National Cycling League and Its August Colorado Race, More about the League By Bill Plock   Oct 20th, 2022–303Endurance spoke to the National Cycling League and learned a few things behind the scenes if you will. As publicly released the league's majority investors are professional athletes and entertainers and most notably all-pro Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey.   There will be four races across the country; South Beach in Miami, Atlanta, Denver, and Washington DC. The race in Denver will be in August (firm dates released soon). The hope is to have a venue with more than a bike race experience. Think music and other entertainment and an energetic “gotta stay and play” atmosphere. The event will work hard to have a positive impact on underserved communities and spectators. The majority of investment will come from minorities and women.   Each race will technically be an “invitational”. While sanctioned by USA Cycling, by being an invitational they can deviate from traditional scoring and offer a more entertaining race. According to our source, each lap will count. “It won't be a traditional crit where you sit back and then pounce on the lead on the last lap, it will be much more compelling than the traditional primes that are offered.”   The league will feature two in-house teams with eight men and eight women and will have a couple of racers in development (think practice squad in the NFL). These teams will race against each other and eight other teams invited to join soon. What's interesting, all teams will have to have an equal number of men and women. But, if you are a team like the DNA Cycling women's team, you can partner with a men's team and compete. If you think you have what it takes to be on the in-house team or manage a team who wants to travel and compete, here is a link to apply: https://www.nclracing.com/regis   As previously reported the league will have unprecedented prize money with the largest prize purse in U.S. crit racing history with a $1 Million up for grabs. To win their share of the purse, 10 teams (2 NCL teams and 8 invited teams) will compete in four NCL Invitational races in 2023, to be held in Miami Beach, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga.; Denver, Colo.; and Washington D.C. The races will start in March and end in September.   David Mulugheta, the NFL's most powerful agent and a co-founder of the NCL, said, “I've been in the sports industry for 15 years and this is the most exciting opportunity I've seen. Beyond the substantial number of people who bike, the ability to build the league from the ground up allows us to get the business, the values, and the ownership structure right. This is why so many professional athletes, entertainers, and people of influence are so excited about what we are building.”   The venue in Denver will be announced in the coming weeks and we are excited to be part of it and will bring you news shortly. We were told there will be a prominent Colorado cyclist on one of the in-house teams and we will be excited to talk with him/her soon!   TRANSITIONING BACK TO TRAINING AFTER INJURY By John Hansen | Oct. 14, 2022, 5:07 p.m. (ET)   An athlete holds their knee and shin as if they are experiencing leg pain.Injuries are a common and negative aspect of triathlon training and racing. They can sideline you for weeks, sometimes months. With proper recovery protocols, however, you can transition back to full training and racing. There are several considerations when returning to training in order to prevent injury relapse and make your transition back to normal training productive:   Avoid dramatic changes in volume and intensity. Allow the injury to heal completely. Stay consistent with training, avoiding long, 2-3+ week breaks. Engage in an all-body dynamic stretching routine prior to every strength and/or high intensity workout. Follow a slow warm up of at least 5-10 minutes prior to any swim, bike or run workout. Engage in yoga or an all-body static stretching and rolling, stick and/or myofascial release routine after every workout. Engage in an all-body strengthening routine 3+ times a week. Avoid lifestyle situations that may re-aggravate a recent injury – examples: aggressively participating in sports that your body is not conditioned to support, sitting or standing for prolonged periods, walking or climbing stairs in excess, lifting heavy or awkward objects, etc. Videotaping - videotaping can help you make form or technique changes once you return to full training and you don't feel any lingering effects of the injury that might alter your form. Videotaping your technique, especially while swimming or running, may uncover form flaws that may have contributed to the injury. This is valuable information for recovery and injury prevention. Beyond these general return-to-training measures, there are specific elements to consider if an injury occurs in the key phases of training: base, build and competition. Please note: these elements are dependent on how severe the injury was. More severe injuries require longer recovery periods and a more conservative approach. It also assumes that you have medical clearance and/or are finishing physical therapy but will follow at-home therapy recommendations, allowing you to return to training.   Base Phase If the injury occurs in the base phase, you stand the best chance of returning to normal training and having minimal effect on your season. Most injuries in this phase are mild to moderate and are caused by training volume, not intensity, so the severity is lessened. Key considerations when returning to training in this phase include:   Alter training surfaces and terrain – ease back into training by running on softer surfaces and limit the amount of hill training (run and bike) early in this phase. Gradually reduce but don't eliminate softer surface running and slowly increase the amount of hill training. Rebuild volume modestly – since each situation is unique, there is no specific protocol to follow, but use a 40-20 rule as a conservative guide. Start out with a training volume that is 40% of the volume you were at prior to the injury and add 20% of the new volume every 1-2 weeks. For minor injuries, this may be too conservative, and for more severe injuries, it may be too aggressive, but it can be a good starting point. In addition, since volume is the focus during this phase, reducing intensity may not be necessary. Walk-run protocols – for more severe running-specific injuries, consider a more conservative approach given the impactful nature of running. Start with 2-3 minutes of running and 1-2 minutes of walking and limit the workout to 15-20 minutes. Each week, add 1 minute of running and reduce the walk by 30 seconds. Keep at least 30 seconds of walk for every run segment. Once you reach 10 minutes of running per 30 seconds of walking, you should be able to run the entire workout. Trainer workouts – using a trainer for bike workouts adds stability and may be necessary to avoid the unpredictability of riding outdoors, especially after a severe and/or upper body injury. Strength training – general strength and/or dry land swim training can be a good transition back to training. Note: if strength training was the root cause of the injury, avoid or minimize those exercises that led to the initial injury until completely symptom-free. You may need to follow other recovery elements such as managing volume and intensity. Equipment adjustments – Make the following equipment adjustments as early as possible in this phase to allow your body to adjust to the change(s): Bike fit – Having a well-fit bike has several positive implications related to most joints in the body including wrists, neck, shoulders, hips, knees and ankles. It also affects your lower back, hamstrings, calves and Achilles. The fit may address the injury itself such as moving the cleats on your shoe and/or raising/lowering the seat if you had a knee injury. Use a professional bike fitter for this option. Running orthotics – if orthotics are recommended to you, get these as early as possible. You must adjust to your new running biomechanics before increasing training volume and intensity. Continue to see a PT for follow up and progression checks – I often recommend having periodic appointments with your PT to ensure you are maintaining proper rehabilitation protocols, especially if returning from a chronic injury. A physical therapist helps a patient use a foam roller on his calf.   Build Phase If your injury occurs in the build phase and is either mild or moderate, you should be able to return to normal training with minimal effect on your racing season. If the injury is more severe, it may affect early-season races. Some considerations regarding your racing schedule may need to be made. Key considerations when returning to training in this phase include the following:   Strength Training – heavier lifting and/or plyometric workouts, which put a lot of strain on your body, are often a part of this phase. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may need to return to lifting by using lighter weights and more reps. Moderately rebuild volume and intensity – many factors affect how aggressively you return to normal training including the severity of the injury, the length of this phase, when races are scheduled, and more. Follow the same 40-20 guide mentioned earlier if a conservative approach makes sense and the injury is more severe. Sometimes, a more aggressive approach may be required, but build volume to at least 75% of normal before adding lower levels of intensity. Equipment adjustments – Make the following equipment adjustments as early as possible in this phase to allow your body to adjust to the change(s): Bike seat position – height and forward/back – only minor adjustments based on the bike fit in the base phase. Consult with your bike fitter prior to making any adjustments. Running shoe wear and tear – due to training volume, running shoes may need to be replaced. A good rule of thumb for shoe replacement: if the shoe has 300-400 miles of use. Reduce the use of swim paddles/buoys – due to the overall volume and/or transition to higher intensity, reduce the use of paddles, even if they are used sparingly. Competition Phase If the injury occurs in the competition phase, you should be able to return to normal training. However, it will likely have a pronounced effect on your racing season depending on several factors, including the severity of the injury and how long of a race season you have scheduled. Key considerations when returning to training in this phase include the following:   Re-adjust racing schedule – it may be necessary to find races later in the season that allow you to rebuild fitness in order to meet your desired racing goals. Moderately rebuild volume and intensity – like the build phase, many factors affect how aggressively you return to normal training, including the severity of the injury, the length of this phase, when races are scheduled during this phase, and more. Follow the same principles outlined in the build phase unless a more aggressive approach can be tolerated. Don't get so aggressive that you reinjure yourself – there's often a thin line between getting reinjured and resuming normal training. Day-to-day adjustments may need to be made. This is a very vulnerable stage for reinjury due the sense of urgency races create. Equipment adjustments - equipment adjustments are only advised in extreme circumstances at this point of the season. If they must be made, they should be very minor and following the advice of your bike fitter. A productive return to training is possible when you follow a well-thought-out transition plan that is progressive in nature, not too aggressive, and incorporates the proper elements mentioned above.   DON'T GET SO AGGRESSIVE THAT YOU REINJURE YOURSELF – THERE'S OFTEN A THIN LINE BETWEEN GETTING REINJURED AND RESUMING NORMAL TRAINING. One final thought: the most vulnerable time for reinjury is when you feel normal as you return to training. Feeling normal in the early phases of recovery can be misleading since your volume and intensity are typically reduced dramatically. You may be anxious to resume normal training, but your body is often not ready. It's important as an athlete to be aware of your body and be able to read what it's telling you with respect to your transition back to training.   Video of the week: 2022 IRONMAN California Race Recon Webinar presented by RaceX       https://www.sacbee.com/news/local/article255247916.html   Upcoming Guests: Adventure Writer, Laura Killingbeck, joins us to tell her story about finding freedom through cycling, finding that space to process our lives, and her amazing endurance journey to this life changing discovery.

Patrick Awori, Founder and CEO at Imaginarium, a Kenyan-based FinTech behind the Circle, a virtual savings platform, hosted another episode of Voice of FinTech: Africa Series. Patrick spoke to Andrew Barden, Director of Insights at Dedalus Global | Lead Organizer and Content Director at Africa Fintech Summit about the state of play on the African FinTech scene and the upcoming  Africa Fintech Summit in South Africa.See more background here:Despite global tech media coverage being awash with stories of falling start-up valuations and sell-offs witnessed in once-vibrant sectors, Africa is largely defying global trends in VC funding. African start-ups are expected to raise about US$ 7 billion by the end of 2022, representing an almost 60% increase in start-up funding from the previous year, which would be raised by a diverse mix of local and global investors. Fintech continues to dominate, raising about 54% of all venture funding in the continent in 2021. Many reasons have been given for the continued growth witnessed in Africa's fintech sector, including the fact that these start-ups are solving big problems such as access. Others given include the base effect, and st revenue traction and so on. Whatever the case, Africa continues to attract interest and how long the boom will last is anybody's guess. To discuss what he calls “the Africanisation of global fintech,” we interview Andrew Barden, Director of Insights at Dedalus Global, and the Lead Organizer and Content Director at the Africa Fintech Summit. In the episode, Andrew shares his outlook on the state of the sector, tips on how business leaders can build resilience in the face of global economic hardship, and what the general factors that make African markets attractive for investment are, from his perspective as a Strategy Consultant and Lead Organizer of the African Fintech Summit, the continent's leading fintech-focused conference. Finally, we discuss in detail what to expect at the 8th edition of the Africa Fintech Summit, which is coming up in November to be held in Capetown, South Africa, and how to participate in the conference and associated events. He describes why the AFTS is a unique space where ideas are explored, investments are mobilized, and collaborations are formed across sectors and geographies.

This week's guest is someone who I have been trying to set up a face-to-face conversation with for around 2 years. Eliud Kipchoge is a Kenyan athlete who is widely regarded as the greatest marathon runner of all time - he has won two successive Olympic marathons and 10 major titles. And of course, he's the only athlete to have ever run a marathon in under two hours, which he did back in 2019 in Vienna as part of the 1:59 challenge. Although this was not recognised as an official world record because it was not in an open competition, it was an incredible achievement for humanity.This conversation took place in London on the weekend of the 2022 London Marathon, exactly seven days after he had once again broken the official marathon world record in Berlin. But the conversation we had for this podcast is about so much more than running. Whether you are a runner or not, I think you are going to find Eliud's insights highly relevant and applicable in your own life.One of the main reasons I wanted to talk to Eliud was not because of his running ability but because I have always been fascinated by the energy that he radiates. He has a calmness, a humility and a complete lack of ego, which I and millions around the world, find ourselves drawn to.We cover many different topics in this conversation. We talk about reflection and why, in this tech heavy world, Eliud still keeps a handwritten training journal. We talk about success and why he doesn't believe in it - which, I think, is remarkable for a man who has achieved so much of it.We also discuss why Eliud always does his runs as part of a community, why he smiles in the latter parts of a marathon, how he manages to stay injury free and what he thinks about retirement.But for me, one of the most insightful parts of this conversation is hearing Eliud talk about self-discipline and why he feels that this is one of the most important skills to develop. Eliud is possibly best known for the phrase ‘No human is limited' and hearing him explain what this means to him, really brings to life the idea that its self-discipline that will help you reach your own potential.This really was a special conversation with an incredible man - I hope you enjoy listening.Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Sign of quality of life in GiveWell's analyses, published by brb243 on October 16, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Content information: This post discusses that lives can be valued negatively by intended beneficiaries. TLDR: GiveWell can include the sign of life quality variable in its analyses. Centre for Pesticide Suicide Prevention (CPSP) In January 2021, GiveWell recommended an approximately $7 million general support grant for the Centre for Pesticide Suicide Prevention (CPSP). The Centre supports the deregistration of pesticides commonly used in suicide. GiveWell assumes that the Centre accelerates the pesticide deregistration by 9 years in each of the countries of operation. The number of lives saved is calculated as the difference between the numbers of lives saved in different policy scenarios weighted by these scenarios' probabilities and the counterfactual improvement in pesticide suicide rates, as extrapolated from past trends. 25,938 lives are expected to be saved. The assumption that the intended beneficiaries would otherwise suicide can suggest that they value their lives negatively. GiveWell assumes that as a result of the pesticide deregistration, agricultural productivity decreases by 30%. The effects of this estimated productivity decrease on the quality of the intended beneficiaries' lives is not discussed. CPSP-promoted pesticide bans would affect entire nations with large farming populations, who live in extreme and national poverty. A 30% decrease in yield can result in increased hunger levels and decreased income levels, which can negatively affect the health and quality of life of millions of people. If the decreases in health and life quality cause a large percentage of farmers to value their lives negatively, support of CPSP can cause millions of people to live dissatisfied. Thus, while CPSP is expected to save thousands of lives, it can also cause millions to live dissatisfied. Malaria vaccination in Kenya The Measuring people's preferences IDinsight survey shows that the average life satisfaction score of Kenyan respondents is 2.3/10 (n = 1,808, SD = 2.32) (p. 42). If the neutral point, “the point where someone is neither satisfied nor dissatisfied,” is above 2.3/10, reducing mortality in Kenya by malaria vaccination can save lives of dissatisfaction. A small-scale (n=30) survey that I conducted in early 2021 in a Kenyan slum suggests that many respondents can value their lives negatively. Respondents were asked to label death and their quality of life on a visual analog scale (arrow) from the worst and the best imaginable situation. If worst corresponds to -1, death to 0, and best to 1, the average quality of life was -0.18, with a standard deviation of 0.40 (column AC). On average, respondents wanted to live 13 additional years (SD=26), while the median was 2 additional years. The wording of the quality of life questions and their survey context can be assessed as leading, which can suggest low quality of data. If you mai[n]tain your lifestyle and the future is what you expect it to be, how many more years starting from now do you want to live? You can say anything from 0 to forever. Where do you place death on this arrow? Please put a line there and write "0." . Where do you place yourself on this arrow? Please put a line there and write "myself." A local enumerator familiar with the area collected the data, while knowing that it is gathered for informational purposes only, without a possible benefit of answering in any specific way. While some (globally poor) respondents accepted a small stipend for their time (which is a custom in the area), many were happy to share their responses without a stipend. This can suggest that respondents answered relatively honestly, with little experimenter bias. This survey shows that the quality...

On this week's episode, hosts Mimi and Kim meet with Pauline Hassan Burkey to discuss her journey towards belonging as an immigrant to the United States. As a small child she, her mother, and her baby brother made the journey from a Kenyan refugee camp to San Diego, California, where she first learned to relate to the various cultures in which she was immersed. She also reflects on her mother breaking the Sudanese cultural codes around a woman's place. Despite criticism from the women in her community, she served as an advocate and community organizer for her refugee community in San Diego, often the only woman serving among all men. Her mother modeled for Pauline how women can be whomever they are meant to be.      Bio: Pauline is the daughter of South-Sudanese refugees who resettled in the United States in 1994. She grew up in City Heights, a densely populated and vibrant community of immigrants and refugees in East San Diego. She studied Interpersonal and Organizational Communications and Journalism at Azusa Pacific University. She's worked with refugee and immigrant communities, then moved to fund programs across sub-Saharan Africa. In 2016, she and her husband moved to Rwanda to continue working in international development. She is back in the United States and works as a program manager for PICO California, the largest multi-faith community organizing non-profit in California. Pauline married her college sweetheart Kenny. They currently live in Sacramento and recently welcomed their first child.      Other Reading:     Which Women Matter to God by Jill Lin https://www.cbeinternational.org/resource/article/mutuality-blog-magazine/which-women-matter-god    Advocating for Equality Among the Marginalized by Nell Green  https://www.cbeinternational.org/resource/audio/advocating-equality-among-marginalized

Highlights:     “Sorry CNN, while LGBT issues and identity politics, in general, may be of the utmost importance in the US or in the whole of the dying, demographically shrinking West, they don't have even remotely of a semblance of such importance here in Kenya.” “As the former president of Kenya pointed out, the family is an issue of society, of culture, of custom, of tradition. It's not something that Western liberal ideology, completely severed from culture, custom, and tradition, gets to come in and change just because it uses fancy-schmancy terms like ‘human rights', ‘marriage equality', and ‘social justice'.” Timestamps:        [01:30] On the issue of LGBT rights and if the Kenyan president will still stand with his position about it  [03:47] Why LGBT issues and identity politics, in general, are not of utmost importance to Kenya [09:08] Why conservative leaders around the world are just getting started on reasserting their customs, cultures, and traditions against globalization Resources:  Learn how to protect your life savings from inflation and an irresponsible government, with Gold and Silver.

Nyakio Grieco wants you to feel seen. The beauty entrepreneur began her journey organically — by learning about the power of natural ingredients visiting her grandmother, a coffee farmer, and her grandfather, a medicine man, in Africa. Ancestral wisdom and world travel led to the birth of Nyakio Beauty, Grieco's first beauty brand, in 2002. Nyakio Beauty has been followed by Thirteen Lune, an inclusive retail platform for beauty brands and founders who, for far too long, have been neglected in terms of capital and retail partnerships; as well as Relevant: Your Skin Seen, a beauty brand developed in 2022 to serve all skin tones and types. Nyakio and Tracy came together for the latest episode of the Potential to Powerhouse Podcast for an enlightening conversation about embracing “bossiness” on our entrepreneurial paths, Identifying pivotal moments as the gift from the universe they are, and surrounding ourselves with people whose knowledge and skill sets complement our own. It's a brilliant conversation with many key takeaways, so have your Notes app open. Key Points Tracy introduces Nyakio and references her as the hybrid between two mega-baller entrepreneurs [00:21] Using your maiden name and hyphenating your last name as a female powerhouse. [02:04] Nyakio tells the story of her family's upbringing and what her experience was like being a first generation American with Kenyan descent. [04:41] The first five to seven years of Nyakio's career in LA. [09:50] The two pivotal moments that changed the trajectory of Nyakio's career as an entrepreneur. [13:15] The launch of Nyakio's first beauty product. [21:29] The reality of trying to survive as a small brand running on little capital. [27:14] After her product was featured on Oprah and Ellen, Nyakio learned some valuable lessons about growing a business.
