Special Guest: Nic Marks: Happiness Expert, TED Speaker and Founder of Friday Pulse Introducing *Nic Marks*, statistician, author, TED speaker and founder of Friday Pulse. Nic specializes in using the science of wellbeing to help individuals, businesses, and governments to track happiness. Nic is a unique statistician with an unusual specialty – happiness. He has been working to create measures of people's quality of life for the past three decades, with an emphasis on their emotional experience and happiness. Nic trained as a statistician, studying Mathematics, Economics and Management Studies at Cambridge University, and then completing his MSc at the University of Lancaster. Since then, he has been on a mission to measure wellbeing and create lasting, positive change. Most companies are great at measuring and tracking financial KPIs. Some have good process orientated KPIs. But very few have good people KPIs. They tend to either be snapshots in time – like an annual engagement survey. Or what can be called “lagging indicators” that only measure what has happened – like staff turnover. How would it be if you knew how every team was feeling every week? Team happiness is the best people metric to track. It predicts retention, productivity and innovation. Learn more about organisations that have been tracking happiness through the pandemic and how they weathered the waves of Covid better than most in the UK.

Text Hawk to 66866 for Mindful Monday... A carefully curated email sent to you every Monday to help you start your week right... Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12      https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 Jimmy Soni is an award-winning author. His book, A Mind at Play: How Claude Shannon Invented the Information Age, won the 2017 Neumann Prize, awarded by the British Society for the History of Mathematics for the best book on the history of mathematics for a general audience, and the Middleton Prize by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. His book, Jane's Carousel, completed with the late Jane Walentas, captured one woman's remarkable twenty-five-year journey to restore a beloved carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Jimmy's most recent book is called, The Founders - The Story of PayPal and the Entrepreneurs Who Shaped Silicon Valley.  Notes: “Your life will be shaped by the things you create, and the people you make them with. We tend to sweat the former. We don't worry enough about the latter." The founders and earliest employees of PayPal pushed and prodded and demanded better of one another. Instead of "Acknowledgements" to end his book, Jimmy titled the section "Debts" "A debt is deeper than an Acknowledgement." Envy the optimist, not the genius. There's real power in optimism. The world is built by optimists. Look for the silver things. Have belief. Be the type of person that believes in themselves and others… Optimism builds confidence in yourself and others. Be an optimist. Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan – The fact that Phil told the best player in the world… “We aren't going to win a championship if you keep playing that way. You have to buy into the triangle offense.” It shows the value of a friend (or a coach) telling you the truth in order to help you (and the team) get better. "Walter Isaacson made me believe in its (the book) importance and potential. At the very end, he provided the kind of advice that can only come from someone who has spent years laboring in the same fields. Peter Thiel refined Max Levchin's thinking... He made him better. Ask, "Have you thought about it this way?" Watch Jiro Dreams of Sushi Kobe Bryant was an incredible learning machine. His insatiable curiosity made him better. You can become curious about anything. Mr. Beast spent hours every day on Skype with his friends talking about how to grow a YouTube channel. We live in a moment were you can connect with others who are passionate about the same topics you are. With the internet, you can connect with anyone. Qualities of the leaders who created PayPal: It was so hard. They all experienced failure and bounced back. Highly intelligent. Hard-working. They worked 7 days a week. There was no work-life balance. They weren't just resilient, they were fast-moving. Life Advice: What looks like expertise on the outside is generally messiness on the inside. Leadership in Solitude. There are benefits to spending some time by yourself. Ask – The people who make things happen are willing to ASK. Steve Jobs to Bill Hewlitt. Elon Musk to Dr. Peter Nicholson. Those "asks" changed the trajectory of their lives. Who knows, maybe your next ASK will change yours… Claude Shannon, Bell Laboratories, renowned as an incredible hub of innovation…  whose work in the 1930s and '40s earned him the title of “father of the information age.” Geniuses have a unique way of engaging with the world, and if you spend enough time examining their habits, you discover the behaviors behind their brilliance.

UFO Disclosure and Spirituality

The Frontier Beyond Fear

This Tuesday, there will be an open congressional hearing in the U.S. on the UFO phenomenon, and this has not happened in over 50 years.  How can we reflect on this topic in a spiritual context, beyond a strictly "nuts and bolts" perspective?  It's important to note that science and spirituality, when they honestly and non-dogmatically explore genuine pathways to truth, are not at odds with one another.  Even so, we can expect significant discussions from multiple perspectives as this new chapter unfolds. Frontier Beyond Fear host Susan Larison Danz had a lively, in-depth discussion on the UFO Disclosure topic with expert and  advocate Stephen Bassett in early 2016.  With the caveat that it has been 6 years since that interview and no doubt some things have changed, you can listen to that entire 90 minute interview here:  Stephen Bassett: Extraterrestrial Disclosure (Interview from January 2016) With degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science, writer, researcher, mystic and philosopher Susan Larison Danz combines logic with spirituality in all of her endeavors, sharing a free-flowing authentic, intuitive and liberating perspective with listeners.  Nature photo by Susan Larison Danz.

Astronomers recently announced that, with the help of the ESO VLT, they had observed a new type of small — yet powerful — stellar explosion: a Micronova. The study, which was published in "Nature" on April 20, was led by Dr. Simone Scaringi, astronomer at Durham University in the UK. We are pleased to welcome Simone to tonight's WSH to tell us more about this exciting discovery. Simone earned his undergraduate BSc in Mathematics with Astronomy at the University of Southampton, after which he obtained both a M.Phil and PhD also from Southampton in the Astronomy group (2010). He spent the next two years at Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands, as a postdoctoral fellow before moving to KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2012 with a FWO Pegasus Marie Curie fellowship. In 2015 Simone joined the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany where he held a Humboldt fellowship. In 2017 Simone was appointed lecturer at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and in 2018 he moved to the United States as an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, USA. Since 2020 he has been an Assistant Professor in the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy at Durham University. Simone's primary research interests are accretion physics across the scales, compact objects, time-series analysis, machine learning, and Galactic photometric surveys. You can learn more about Simone and his research by visiting his faculty website at Durham University as well as his personal website. You can also follow him on Facebook as well as Twitter, although he admits to rarely using Twitter! IMAGE CREDIT: This artist's impression shows a two-star system where micronovae may occur. The blue disc swirling around the bright white dwarf in the centre of the image is made up of material, mostly hydrogen, stolen from its companion star. Towards the centre of the disc, the white dwarf uses its strong magnetic fields to funnel the hydrogen towards its poles. As the material falls on the hot surface of the star, it triggers a micronova explosion, contained by the magnetic fields at one of the white dwarf's poles. Credit: ESO/M. Kornmesser, L.

Guests:Lee Bratcher (twitter.com/lee_bratcher)Ben Hertz-Shargel (twitter.com/benhertzshargel)Host:Richard Yan (twitter.com/gentso09)Today's motion is “Bitcoin mining is good for the grid.”Bitcoin advocates think bitcoin is a good invention for many reasons, one of which is that it makes the power grid more robust. In 2021, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas made the claim that Bitcoin is, and I quote, “a way to strengthen our energy infrastructure.”But is it? How exactly does bitcoin mining make the grid more robust?In today's debate, I wanted to focus more on whether bitcoin is good for the grid, not whether bitcoin is good. So I try to steer the conversation away from whether bitcoin is a societal good, independent of its impact on the electric grid.One of our guests today is a researcher in the subject matter of electric power grids. The other guest runs a trade group that tries to advocate for bitcoin and crypto industries in the state of Texas.If you're into crypto and like to hear two sides of the story, be sure to also check out our previous episodes. We've featured some of the best known thinkers in the crypto space.If you would like to debate or want to nominate someone, please DM me at @blockdebate on Twitter.Please note that nothing in our podcast should be construed as financial advice.Source of select items discussed in the debate (and supplemental material):https://www.cnbc.com/2021/12/04/bitcoin-miners-say-theyre-fixing-texas-electric-grid-ted-cruz-agrees.htmlhttps://www.utilitydive.com/news/bitcoin-mining-as-a-grid-resource-its-complicated/617896/https://www.dallasnews.com/business/energy/2021/11/29/why-cryptocurrency-miners-pose-the-next-big-threat-to-the-texas-electric-grid/https://www.woodmac.com/industry/power-and-renewables/grid-edge-service/Guest bios:Lee Bratcher is the President and Founder of the Texas Blockchain Council. The Texas Blockchain Council is an industry association that seeks to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for Bitcoin, crypto and blockchain. The TBC helped to research two pieces of blockchain legislation that were passed by the state's Legislative body signed into effect by state Governor.Ben Hertz-Shargel is Global Head of Grid Edge at Wood Mackenzie, where he leads research across electrification, distributed energy resources, and demand flexibility.

Consider the first segment of this show your pep talk. I picked out a key chapter from my book, How Much Joy Can You Stand? How to Push Past Your Fears and Create Your Dreams. May it inspire you to higher heights… We await them! I had a fascinating conversation with social media impact expert, Dr. Brian Primack. Scary fact: we now spend an average of 147 minutes on social media every day—up from 2021. Dr. Primack conducted the essential studies that drive what we know today about the impact of ingesting such massive amounts. And those negatives include poor self-image, depression and…yes… anxiety. But Dr. Primack believes there is a conscious, healthy way to navigate social media, which is what this segment is all about. Important stuff! Among other things, I learned: Why social media is such a ‘double edged sword' What FOMO is and what it drives Can social media truly be used to self-soothe? The impact of social media on the subconscious Do the positives balance the negatives? What is negativity bias and why it matters His approach to using social media in a healthy way Should you set up notifications on your social media?   RESOURCES AG1 – Get a Free Year's Supply of Vitamin D AND 5 Travel Packs with your first purchase.

Or has it existed from eternity past? If it DID have a beginning, this raises a question: Did the universe have a Creator? In PART 1 we explored this question scientifically. Now, let's look at it philosophically. Aristotle believed the universe was eternal in the past. But Al-Ghazali disagreed. He pointed out that if the universe did NOT have a beginning, then the number of past events in the history of the universe is infinite. But that's a problem because the existence of an actually infinite number of past events leads to absurdity! It's metaphysically impossible. Why?

They believe that mathematical relationships reflect real aspects of the physical world.
