Personification of Earth's environment
After his time with EMI (and all of those Beatles records), Sir George Martin founded AIR Studios, opening multiple locations. This week, the Imbalanced Brothers focus on AIR Montserrat, a tropical paradise with a world-class recording studio! The story is well-told in "Under The Volcano," which is airing on Showtime and Hulu! Dozens of well-known albums were made there between Climax Blues Band's opening of the place, and The Stones' "Steel Wheels," the studio's final project before tragedy strikes. Markus and Ray tell the tale of those halcyon days of the recording business, and the double-sided sword that Mother Nature tosses at the island, that takes the life of Martin's tropical dream. Along the way, Gracie Otto's directorial depiction of those days has caused both of our hosts to consider an adventurous return to those hallowed studio grounds.

NOTES: ● Before Dr. Glenn Vo happily introduces our next guest for the Nifty Thrifty Podcast, let us ask you a question: How many times have you had to buy another kit to do Amalgam recycling in your practice? ● If you're anything like Glenn, legislation has made things a hassle. When insurance companies want to take a slice of our pie, it's a real bummer; oftentimes, we end up being taken advantage of. ● On one hand, it means we're inhibited from serving our patients, improving their lives, and setting them up for success. On the other hand, we're hurting our good friend Mother Nature when we don't recycle. ● Being responsible for the environment shouldn't be expensive, but it can cost an arm and a leg (and then some). That's why Dave Picone and his teams over at DRNA are committed to helping folks like us save 50% off on our Amalgam recycling needs. ● Yup, you read that right! Glenn was happy to introduce Dave Picone, VP of Sales from Dental Recycling on North America (DRNA), for those reasons and more. Not only is Dave easy to work with, but he's got a lot of good news to share with our community. ● DRNA has been around for over 20 years and has helped many members save money over the Solmetex recycling cartridges. ● In Dave's eyes, making sure you're stocked up on Amalgam Separator cartridges shouldn't cost a fortune. It also shouldn't be difficult, which is why his team over at DRNA has created simplified tutorials on their website and assembled a specialized operations team who can walk you through the process of replacing your cartridges. ● In fact, Glenn thinks that's one of the most important services provided by DRNA. Installation is rarely free for any product or service, but Dave and his team over at DRNA make things so simple that any dentist can save some mula by taking installation into their own hands. ● DRNA has its own Amalgam Separators—the BU-10 and BU10-30 Amalgam Separators—which are a little bit “different” than the name-brand Amalgam Separators out there. The BU10 Amalgam Separator is designed for practices with 1-8 chairs. The BU10-30 Amalgam Separator is designed for practices with 9-16 chairs. Each complies with all local, state, and federal regulations. ● Even better? If you don't yet have a unit, just started your dental practice, or you're just tired of switching out cartridges all the time then you can switch to the BU-10 for free—so long as you oblige to a “service agreement. That means there's an annual service that'll be around $500 but, for the Nifty Thrifty community, it's a price that is totally flexible. ○ Alternatively, you can choose to stick with your current model in lieu of the BU-10 and just purchase Amalgam Separator Cartridges from DRNA. ● Learn about: ○ How did Dave and Glenn meet? ○ And more! ● Tune in to watch Dave walk us through a presentation where he shares some data about the Amalgam Separator market, how DRNA is beating their competitors to save dentists money, what sort of products and/or services they're offering, and more. ○ And don't forget about the Nifty Deal! NIFTY DEAL: ● Use discount code __ to get 20% off of any product you order from the DRNA website. ● $75 dollars off 2, $100 dollars of 3+
How can we implement Behavioural Science in larger organisations? On this episode, I'm doing a deep dive into practical Behavioural Science with three practitioners from across the globe, who talk about some of the projects they've been working on. My guests are all from Ogilvy Consulting, a leading Behavioural Science practice and each work in different regions.Heather Watson heads up Ogilvy's North American BeSci team from Austin, Texas, Dan Bennett is responsible for the UK and is based in London and Paolo Mercado is in Manila.To connect or learn more about them:Heather - https://www.linkedin.com/in/heathernwatson/Dan - https://www.linkedin.com/in/thebestdanielbennett/Paolo - https://www.linkedin.com/in/paolo-mercado-0a4a8a17/The idea behind the episode is to illustrate the breadth of challenges to which Behavioural Science can be put to use. You'll hear about improving customer experience, protecting people who work in safety-critical industries by helping them to change their behaviour to be more compliant with safety protocols and how Behavioural Science can help improve sales of consumer products. We also explore some of the challenges of deploying Behavioural Science in larger organisations – the obstacles, both practical and political – and the fact that we can sometimes end up proposing counter-intuitive or unorthodox solutions, which work brilliantly but can defy the logic by which normal corporate decisions are made. But that's the whole point. Behavioural Science allows us to come up with effective solutions to common business problems, that can't easily be solved by traditional thinking.It's also an opportunity for us to preview Nudgestock, Ogilvy's annual festival of behavioural science and creativity and get some clues about what you can expect.You can find out more about Nudgestock at www.nudgestock.com To be notified when new episodes of the show are available subscribe to the podcast newsletter: https://www.getrevue.co/profile/humanriskIf you enjoy this episode, you can find my discussions with other members of the Ogilvy BeSci team:Maddie Croucher who talked to me about how BeSci can help fundraising: https://www.humanriskpodcast.com/maddie-croucher-on-behavioural-science-for-fundraising/Sam Tatam introduced his book ‘Evolutionary Ideas' on how Mother Nature can inspire BeSci solutions https://www.humanriskpodcast.com/sam-tatam-on-evolutionary-ideas/Benoit de Fleurian explained how BeSci is helping to reduce anti-social behaviour https://www.humanriskpodcast.com/benoit-de-fleurian-on-preventing/And, last but definitively not least, Rory Sutherland talked about Compliance https://www.humanriskpodcast.com/rory-sutherland-on-compliance/

In our arrogance humanity has made some foolish decisions in the past, and yet we don't seem to learn from our mistakes. Unsinkable ships, airships filled with explosive hydrogen, freely spraying DDT; we've got it wrong so many times. However could we be continuing this erroneous tradition and be doing it all over again? We chat about the controversial theory that using non-sterilising vaccines during the Corona pandemic could be actually making things worse and hear how Mother Nature could only be months away from giving us a monumental natural selection smackdown. Then for our Plus+ members we hear how scientific progress is catching up with esoteric concepts and beginning to explain some metaphysical phenomena. We discuss how sudden fears could have deep connections to family traumas and consider how energy cords interact with the idea of karma. Links What Does the WHO’s Pandemic Treaty Really Do?

No matter what specialised diet or treatment you undergo, we are all affected by aging and oxidative stress. In the medical field, treatments are widely reactive and target specific things like infections. However, health is more than just counteracting sickness — it should also be about helping our body regenerate! There is now emerging research about hyperbaric oxygen therapy and its ability to help with sickness and improve general health. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is not a cure-all miracle, however, it can help supply our bodies with the oxygen they need to repair and heal themselves! In this episode, Dr Jason Sonners tackle common misconceptions about oxygen and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Dr Jason discusses oxidative stress and what can make it positive or negative for our bodies. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may not be widely used in hospitals, but the emerging research surrounding it shows incredible results. Take your health into your own hands and discover how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can improve your health!

Hyperbaric Environment: Oxygen and Cellular Damage versus Protection Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - Discussion between Dr Jason Sonners & Dr Mercola from the Take Control of Your Health podcast Oxygen Under Pressure by Dr Jason Sonners Check out previous Pushing the Limit episodes: Episode 230 - Exploring Ari of the Possible with Dr Joe Dituri Episode 227 - Fighting Cancer and Other Diseases Using the Ketogenic Diet with Dr Dominic D'Agostino Episode 170 - Search for the Perfect Amino Protein and Why So Many of Us are Deficient with Dr David Minkoff Episode 116 - AMA with Dom D'Agostino, PhD, Part I of II: Ketogenic diet, exogenous ketones, and exercise Episode 120 – AMA with Dom D'Agostino, PhD, Part II of II: Ketosis for cancer and chronic disease, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and the effect of ketosis on female health Connect with Dr Jason: Website I NJ HBOT Center I Youtube I Email (email@example.com) Episode Highlights [02:53] Introduction to Dr Jason Dr Jason's background is in exercise physiology, chiropractic and nutrition. When he got a herniated disc, he was confident in his and his wife's abilities to help him recover. However, it did not fully heal even after 18 months. Dr Jason then happened to attend a chiropractic conference and discovered hyperbaric chambers. He took sessions for four days and immediately saw improvement. His experience made him want to better understand hyperbaric oxygen therapy. [07:04] How Hyperbaric is Growing Despite its impact and effectiveness, hyperbaric is not widely used in hospitals. Dr Jason explains this is largely because of politics and insurance. There's also a myth that oxygen is dangerous. The medical profession typically uses antibiotics to heal wounds, but antibiotics focus on reducing infection risks and do not improve the healing response. Typically, doctors and insurance companies do not bring access and awareness to hyperbaric. It's typically the patient. Because of a large interest in hyperbaric, Dr Jason was able to set up 30 hyperbaric clinics last year. [14:14] How Hyperbaric Acts as a Panacea Dr Jason emphasises that hyperbaric therapy does not cure anything, but it can help with general wellness since your cells use oxygen to make energy. Even if you're 100% saturated with oxygen, it does not mean that you have the oxygen needed to heal or fuel certain systems. In the full episode, Dr Jason explains how we never have a surplus of oxygen for regeneration. Hyperbaric therapy can create a reservoir of oxygen in our bodies and improve oxygen absorption to feed the tissues that need it. The reservoir is used over a 10-hour period. Hyperbaric chambers put oxygen under pressure, compressing the molecules until they're small enough to dissolve into tissues. [20:36] How Oxygen and Pressure Works When you go above sea level, it becomes harder to breathe. This is not because there's less oxygen, but because of how pressure forces oxygen into your circulation. Every time you breathe, red blood cells pick up oxygen molecules and take them where they're needed. With hyperbarics, oxygen dissolves at a faster rate than the capacity of red blood cells. Oxygen then stays in the liquid. Red blood cells cannot bring oxygen to damaged tissues, however, hyperbaric allows them access as it produces an excess of oxygen in the liquid. [23:01] Short-term and Long-term Benefits of Hyperbarics Our cells use food to create NAD and oxidized NAD becomes the fuel for our cells. Hyperbarics helps increase oxidation and, therefore, more fuel or ATP production. Long-term benefits of hyperbaric include immune system upregulation, stem cell release, angiogenesis, and rebuilding of blood vessels. [25:48] Is There Such a Thing as Getting Out Too Quickly? When divers get out of water too quickly, the danger is not from the oxygen but from nitrogen. Too much nitrogen can block blood vessels and choke arteries. The level of nitrogen depends on how deep a hyperbaric chamber is. However, most hyperbaric environments do not contain nitrogen. Dr Jason shares that leaving a hyperbaric chamber makes the body think it's becoming hypoxic, but it's not actual hypoxia. This state drives the angiogenesis growth factors. [30:39] Differences Between Short and Long Hyperbaric Sessions When working with athletes, Dr Jason uses short 20–30 minute sessions to give a boost. The hyperbaric chamber puts you in a parasympathetic state in which your body slows down, relaxes, and heals. Doing hyperbaric at night can help people sleep better. Dr Jason shares that around 30% of people get stimulated instead after doing hyperbaric, so he recommends these people do hyperbaric in the morning. [32:50] What Can Hyperbaric Help With? Dr Jason shares that hyperbaric research is still in progress and may not provide in-depth insights into certain conditions. Hyperbaric therapy works for necrotizing fasciitis and gangrene. Hyperbaric therapy helps to reduce microbe activity and breaks down biofilms that anaerobic organisms. Conceptually, hyperbaric therapy would also work on other anaerobic infections like H Pylori. It also helps white blood cells kill both bacterial and viral infections. Hyperbaric therapy can also help with neuropathy, strokes, and TBI. There is still little research on its effect on ALS and MS, but Dr Jason notes that since it's an ongoing process, hyperbaric therapy can only work if it's done aggressively. [37:48] When is Oxidative Stress Beneficial or Detrimental? Oxidative stress is the reason we're dying, but it also helps us. Everything requires balance and reactive oxygen species help promote cell turnover. There needs to be enough damage to stimulate healing. While oxidation from the outside environment destroys our bodies, oxidation from hyperbaric therapy increases mitochondrial performance. As people get used to hyperbaric sessions, they can build a tolerance to oxidation from the outside environment. [42:48] The Importance of Protocols Healthy people can use hyperbarics periodically as it's relatively safe. For people with serious health concerns, it's important to have a good protocol to match different therapies together. [46:28] How Does Molecular Hydrogen Work with Hyperbarics? Molecular hydrogen is not an antioxidant, but it can act like one. When oxidizing, our bodies sometimes experience incomplete combustion and create superoxide or free radicals. Using molecular hydrogen mixes excess oxygen with excess hydrogen to reduce free radical production. [49:41] Can Hyperbarics Help with COVID-19? There's been a huge interest in hyperbarics to help manage COVID-19 since it can help improve oxygen saturation. Viruses need to be contained by our immune system. We can typically live with viruses in our body without them expressing. COVID-19 is a new type of infection so it takes longer for people's immune systems to get it under control. Other dormant infections can surface since our immune systems are so depleted. Hyperbarics can help refuel that immune system. [56:29] Importance of Synergy Senescence cells can help protect the DNA against oxidative stress. Combining hyperbaric therapy with other autophagy-related therapies like fasting and keto can create a synergistic effect. [1:00:15] Future of Hyperbarics and Epigenetics Research Dr Jason has written a book and uses his YouTube channel to help dispel myths about hyperbarics. He shares that most research focuses on high-pressure hyperbarics, but his practice shows that people see benefits at all pressures. There is growing research comparing benefits at different pressures. What you do now is going to affect the next generation. While intergenerational toxicity exists, you can also re-teach your cells to express a healthier version of themselves. 7 Powerful Quotes “Just like anything else, you need to know how to use [oxygen], how to operate it properly, how to keep it within a safe means and make it effective.” “This might not sound fabulous, but [oxygen] doesn't cure anything. It just helps with so many things.” “Not only do we have to exercise properly, but the framework of alignment, and posture, and all the pieces that predispose the body to breaking down prematurely, and where chiropractic fit the model of really trying to improve that story.” “I can only hold my breath for a couple minutes and if I can get a little bit more oxygen, maybe I could heal a little bit faster. To some extent, it's that simple.” “If we make really great changes, and then we decide to have children at some point, we may not have to pass down the intergenerational toxicity.” “Every virus you've ever had, you'll always have. They live contained, so to speak, and as long as our immune system can keep things in quarantine that way, we can typically live with these viruses in our body without actually expressing.” “Molecular hydrogen is technically not an antioxidant, but it has antioxidant-like capacity.” About Dr Jason Dr Jason Sonners, DC, DIBAK, DCBCN, CCWP, CHP is a certified hyperbaric practitioner and is the Clinic Director of NJ HBOT and HBOT USA.

Hey fam, welcome back for another episode of The Brave Table! Today's guest is Jovanka Ciares, a best-selling author, wellness expert, integrative herbalist, nutrition educator, and coach. Jovanka's here to talk about optimizing your health through your ancestry and Mother Nature, how you can be brave in making better choices for yourself or when speaking to loved ones about improving their health, and to give us the scoop on her latest book, Reclaiming Wellness: Ancient Wisdom for Your Healthy, Happy, and Beautiful Life. What you'll get out of this episode… - What is herbalism and why it's the easiest thing you can do to reclaim your health - How to find balance in your health instead of taking an all or nothing approach - What herbs, fungi, and adaptogens you can take to have more energy - What do when you feel defeated by your diagnosis and when Western medicine has failed you - What it means to reclaim your ancestry and what your elders can teach you about your health and diet - How to have tough conversations with family members and loved ones when you're concerned about their health and what steps you can take to help them - What is the “Reduce and Replace” method, and how to use it to foster better habits I met Jovanka at Burning Man right after I sold my practice, and she was exiting a big-time career as an exec in the entertainment industry. We realized we had so much in common: we were both ending our first marriages, we were total type A queens learning how to loosen the reigns on our perfectionism, and we were both on the path of searching for something that felt more aligned with this next stage of our evolution. For Jovanka, that journey started with completely burning out. Born in Puerto Rico, she moved to New York for work, where she quickly climbed the corporate ladder. However, the long days and fast pace had her body falling apart, and she experienced a host of unpleasant and “incurable” conditions like IBS, fibroids, and ulcers. Refusing to believe there was no way to feel better, she traveled around the world to learn about ancient medicines and healing practices—like Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Western herbalism—and used them to heal herself of all her disorders. Jovanka realized the healing modalities she was discovering were nothing new; they were passed down from our ancestors and became lost in our hyper externalized, materialized, and medicalized society. As a woman of color, she felt she needed to be a voice for these medicines (many of which originated among communities of color) and encourage people to reclaim their ancestry and their birthright to good health. Her latest book, Reclaiming Wellness: Ancient Wisdom for Your Healthy, Happy, and Beautiful Life, explores today's most effective wellness practices—and their multicultural sources—in a way that makes health accessible to all. It includes practical ways to incorporate plant-based whole foods into even the most hectic routines, gentle movements you can make that are centered around self-love rather than exercise, mindfulness techniques, and more. Jovanka gives us a taste of some of the most successful tips from her book in this episode, so tune in! While you listen, I'd love for you to contemplate how you can incorporate healthy changes into your own life to optimize your wellbeing. Can you be brave enough to challenge some of our ideas and beliefs about health in Western medicine and try another way? Even if it's as simple as trying a new herb or meditation. Or, if you feel like you've got your health on lock, maybe you can muster up the courage to share this information with a loved one whose health has you concerned and spread some new knowledge into their life that could help them out?

Craftsmanship's founding editor Todd Oppenheimer sits down with Paul and Elizabeth Kaiser, a husband-and-wife farming team who have been at the forefront of a promising approach to growing food called regenerative agriculture. Hear about the success of the movement they helped start; some mind boggling results from recent testing on their soil and produce; and how they harness Mother Nature to make their land more productive than any human technology ever could. This episode is part of the series of “Artisan Interviews” produced by Craftsmanship Quarterly, in which we bring you conversations with the artisans behind the stories, and with those who write about them. You can visit the Kaisers' website at www.singingfrogsfarm.com. And, you can read our original 2015 article on the Kaisers titled, "The Drought Fighter."

A recession is coming!! Yikes! When? Not sure. How severe? Couldn't tell ya. How long will it last? Your guess is as good as mine. When you have an event that is inevitable, but the severity and timing are impossible to know, what do you do? You prepare, you don't prognosticate. Think about it, we prepare for all sorts of things Mother Nature throws our way and preparing for a recession is similar. Today we will talk about what being prepared for a recession looks like.

How do you define your spirituality? What do you believe in? Are you comfortable with words like God, prayer, universe, or Mother Nature? Today's episode of the Yoga Girl Podcast tackles the big questions of life. By the end, you may feel closer to your own spirituality and your place in the universe. After recently leading a meditation to embody prayer, Rachel shares not only what this meditation is, but the learnings and epiphanies she took away from the experience. A lot of us have a complicated relationship with our beliefs, but sometimes the weight we put on certain words can keep us from a true knowing: that we are all connected, and we are here for a reason. You are the embodiment of universal love, but sometimes that's forgotten in the messiness of life. Tune in to anchor back into that knowing. Learn more about your ad choices.

In this episode, Dr Suzanne Humphries discusses her findings from years of research on the efficacy of vaccines and how they can be ineffective and risky. She also shares the flaws in conventional medicine. Lastly, Suzanne offers suggestions on what people can do to raise awareness about the potential dangers of vaccines and alternative options. If you want to learn more about vaccines and their effects, then this episode is for you! Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode: Understand how vaccines work, and why they're potentially harmful to your health.

After realising nursing wasn't for her, she studied physics and entered medical school. After graduating from medical school, she wrote her book Rising From The Dead, which recounts her experiences there. [06:59] Vaccines and Kidney Problems Preventive surveillance medicine is damaging to patients. Suzanne noticed how vaccines could cause kidney problems after observing a patient's reaction to a flu shot. She eventually left the hospital where she worked because they wouldn't listen to her reports about the adverse effects of vaccines, despite her findings. Tune in to the full episode as Suzanne recounts this experience! [15:03] Reinvention Phase After quitting conventional medicine, she studied reductionist medicine, vitamins, and polio. She wrote her book, Dissolving Illusions, during this time of reinvention in her life. Eventually, she began seeing patients again after she'd studied in Madrid. [18:37] Polio Research Researching about and asking questions on vaccines are essential. After three years of polio research, Suzanne discovered that the virus permeates the intestines and gets into the nervous system more quickly due to toxins. Tune in to the full episode to hear Suzanne discuss her research findings in depth! [25:04] Why Vaccines Don't Work Vaccines cause new, more harmful strains because they put pressure on the microbe. Doctors that opposed the polio vaccine because of its harmful effects were fired. The results in the Francis Trial were highly manipulated, dissuading people from doubting the safety of the vaccines. [33:26] How to Assess Vaccines Look at the disease and its lethality. Learn the appropriate treatment options. Find out the vaccine efficacy and safety. [36:41] The Problem with Vaccines Childhood vaccines disrupt the natural programming of a child's immune system, which causes it to go haywire. The measles vaccine is probably the most effective. Adults can make their own decisions, but enlisting children for vaccines is troubling. While vaccinology has nothing to offer, oncology is a bit more hopeful. Since the science and politics of vaccinations make little sense, Suzanne suspects an ulterior agenda—the financial reset. [51:51] Fight Back Against the System We need to wake up and resist unnecessary vaccines. We must do what's best for future generations. Don't take COVID lightly. Isolation or quarantine is the best option. [55:24] Healthier, Safer Alternatives If you're sick, find a doctor who works best with you and knows what to do. Consider naturopaths and chiropractors. Keep some zinc, sodium ascorbate, and magnesium supplements, including antihistamines, at home. Suzanne also recommends food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Tune in to hear more recommendations from Suzanne! 7 Powerful Quotes ‘I thought, “Can vaccines cause kidney problems?” I'd never been taught that. I never heard that. Then, I started to review the medical literature and yes, vaccines can and do cause kidney problems—all kinds of kidney problems.' ‘The pro-vaccine have always gotten away with the minimalist argument, because the mythology around vaccination has been so pervasive and so convincing to the public.' ‘I would say the biggest problem with the childhood vaccines...is that they are disrupting the normal programming, normal blueprint of that child's immune system and causing them to be hyperreactive.' ‘Today we're in this situation where the public has swallowed the Kool-Aid, believed the mythology, terrorised, afraid to die…Doesn't matter what kind of life you're living so long as you didn't die, it's worth the intervention.' ‘We are facing this massive problem with pharmaceutical companies running the whole entire ship…everything has been influenced by this and I can't prove it, but that's my opinion.' ‘I think the key is going to be more people waking up resisting, not saying, “I'm going to take the shot because I have to pay my mortgage.”...But what you're doing when you're doing that is you're consigning future generations to a lifetime of vaccination, so that you can keep your job now.' ‘Don't take COVID lightly. Look, isolation, quarantine is a biblical thing. It's been around forever. It's one of the most effective.' About Dr Suzanne Humphries Dr Suzanne Humphries is a medical doctor, formerly an internist and a nephrologist when she was still working in conventional hospital systems. In 2011, she left her traditional hospital position to research medical literature on vaccines, immunity, history, and functional medicine. Suzanne has also lectured in various parts of the world on infant immunity, vitamin C, aluminum, and vaccination.

Episode 34: On today's episode I talk with Justin Frandson who is into hacking EMFs just like Mother Nature intended.

Allison Tully, Co-Founder of Peak Performance Equipment and the InfinitiLoop explains the beginning of the product It was the summer of 2018. My running buddies and I yawned as we strapped on our daily o'dark:30 run when one of our friends threw her tangled reflective gear to the ground, shouting, "FORGET IT! I'll run without anything!" We stood staring at the $150 worth of equipment, one piece held together by duct tape, another tied with twisty ties to keep it snug (yet it still flew all over the place), when I thought, "There has to be a better way." After having colleagues, friends, friends of friends, and so along try out the belt and provide feedback of all sorts, Allison and her husband came out with the final version of the InfinitiLoop,w which I wear on my early morning and evening runs myself!Instead of looking like a Christmas Tree with all of the heavy gear and lights while you're out on your run, you can pick up the Peak Performance InfinitiLoop instead! The Loop illuminates the path ahead of you, making you visible to cars and other pedestrians around you, keeping you safe and away from the bad guys, and fits super lightly on your hips.

Almost every home has special trim work outside. From brick moulding around doors and windows, boards that outline the eaves, or exterior crown moulding ….this trim has a way of adding definition and style to a home. But, because these are wood pieces on the outside, they're constantly under the barrage of Mother Nature. Both weather conditions and insects can deteriorate trim before you know it. When it's time to replace that trim, consider using cellular PVC instead of wood. Cellular PVC looks just like wood, comes in a smooth or a wood grain finish, and it will never rot, warp or be attacked by insects. It will cost about 20% more than a wood product, but you will NEVER have to replace it again.
In this episode of Clarity with Sue, Justin Frandson joins host Sue Lundquist to talk about everything EMF. Justin Frandson is an Athleticism Performance Coach that has worked with amateur and professional athletes for over the past two decades. He saw his athlete breaking down from the excessive levels of EMF from their SMART watches, wireless earbuds, and electric cars. He has tested hundreds of homes and clients. He sells the Grounding and Faraday Bags at doctor clinics throughout the country. The Grounding Bags are hand-mined crystals with moisture and magnetic properties to ground and repel EMF, all for a deeper night's sleep. This is Mother Nature's way of protecting us from the excess rollout of man-made radiation, not a man-made device attempting to keep up with the other man-made levels.
We spoke with Pietro Lapiana, President of EuroLink Systems, about the inspiration and applications of their elegantly engineered Beluga Drone.

“Sometimes we think, ‘I'm not sleeping, I'm not exercising, I need to eat healthier, I'm stressed', and then we're just even more overwhelmed. Overwhelm does nothing for us.” Dr. Christopher Mohr (24:07-24:17) Dr. Christopher Mohr, PhD R.D., is one of the world's leading nutrition and mindset experts and he's got a lot to say when it comes to “Minding your Melon”. He's consulted for clients like Under Armour, Reebok, Clif Bar, Gatorade, and was the consulting Sports Nutritionist for the Cincinnati Bengals. He's even spoken at the White House and to the CIA thanks to his incredible expertise! Dr. Mohr is no stranger to mental health. Sure, you can practice all the “wellbeing” steps in the world, but if you aren't handling stress properly, you won't reap the benefits of all your “wellbeing” hard work. One thing Dr. Mohr is concerned about in regards to stress is our children. Not only have they grown up in an era of constantly being connected digitally, they've experienced a large amount of radical changes in a short period of time with the pandemic and virtual schooling, causing a heightened sensitivity. Even as adults, we're always connected to a device and lack the quiet time we need to refresh, relax and reenergize. If you're mentally stressed out, it's going to impact all other areas of your life and can turn into a vicious cycle of burnout. As we know, stress can turn into not being able to sleep well and get the rest you need, eating foods that aren't healthy for you, which turns into weight gain, which can cause self-esteem issues, and then the cycle just continues. “If we're not making sleep a priority (in quality and quantity), that can play a big role in overall stress and mental health struggles.” Dr. Christopher Mohr (11:15-11:26) Whether we like it or not, stress is unavoidable. There's constantly different shoes we have to fill, hats we have to wear, and uncontrollable variables being thrown at us (like a pandemic) that we have to deal with. Now, we're living in an era where it's common to work from home or have a hybrid work situation, on top of always being connected through a device, there's never enough time to shut down, disconnect and decompress from the day. Did you know 60% of people say their stress level is at an all-time high, and many of those people were claiming to be at the level of burnout? This is why boundaries are important, which can be difficult if you're in a field like farming, for example, where your job truly is 24/7. Farmers' boundary issues with work go beyond receiving an email at 11 p.m. and choosing to answer or ignore it. Farmers have to deal with their profit growing in the ground almost all year round, while fighting unforeseen variables Mother Nature throws at them. Plus, there's labor issues, diseases, and so many other things out of a farmer's control. Dr. Mohr likens farmers to first responders – they're both always working and if they don't work, we don't eat! For farmers and anyone else dealing with stress, Dr. Mohr suggests making a list of controllable stressors and uncontrollable stressors. There are always going to be things we deal with that are out of our control, but what is in our control is how we respond to those stressors. When it comes to your health, you do have control over what you put in your body, how and when you move it, and taking baby steps in the right direction. “Worrying about things that we have no control over does nothing more than increase our stress and worry when we can't do anything about it anyway.” Dr. Christopher Mohr (20:33-20:42) It's important to identify the pieces in your life you can control and the things you can't, so you can then decide how to respond to them. Knowing the harmony that's created between taking care of your sleep, diet and exercise habits in conjunction to mental stress, take just one baby step in the right direction with any area you're struggling with. That might mean you commit to eating one piece of fruit a day, or making it a non-negotiable that you're in bed by 9 p.m. (with your phone off!) every night. Also, don't hesitate to talk to someone like a licensed therapist or counselor about your stress. There are plenty of professionals who will understand your unique situation and can help you discover improvements you can make to better your mental health. Boundaries, non-negotiables and understanding what you can and can't control are all great takeaways to “Mind your Melon” and take care of your mental health!

Such a lovely world —if it weren't for the people!Let's get rid of them.* * *In the last segment on Precepts & Putin, I finally got around to asking what all these ethical and political issues have to do with Design thinking, pointing out that even such large-scale dilemmas are subject to analysis and problem definition, with design intent being the underlying premise. What kind of intent rationalizes waging war, visiting death and destruction upon fellow human beings? What is the intent behind the design of the defense of Ukraine? Which of these is worthy of admiration and emulation?Usually we ascribe good intentions to those programs of action designed to yield the greatest good for the greatest number. And usually the politicos profile their cause in those terms. But it seems that the majority of actions ostensibly taken on behalf of something greater than ourselves, upon closer examination, reveal the same old group of benefactors benefitting from corruption and graft, with other groups, such as draftees, conscripted or mercenaries, suffering the negative consequences. Not to mention innocent civilians. Designing around such human faults is the central problem of government.Hypothetical solutions to international tensions include designing governing systems that will meet the needs of the populace without requiring the acquisition of goods and services, revenue and resources, from others, especially against their will. Setting aside the human motives in prosecuting a war of aggression, which may range from relatively rational impulses, such as gaining access to seaports and land bridges, to fantasies of power and glory, or myths and cultural memes. Self-sufficiency seems to be a worthy aspiration that has fallen by the wayside in a world-around pursuit of ever-greater consumption and materialistic lifestyles. The age-old question of how much is enough, manifested in traditional Zen monastics as limited to seven possessions, and in Design as the self-sustaining systems of minimal life support on the International Space Station. The question of reliability of the replenishment of supplies through a Russian-sponsored program came up as a sideshow of the Ukraine debacle.So it is self-evident that Design as a problem-solving process has limitations. In cases of widespread madness, which is a known issue in history, but even more acute in an age of global interconnectedness through the internet of satellite-supported mobile media, the most we can do is design our personal response to the continuing crisis. In doing so, we may come up with an approach that has scalability, in other words that is widely adaptable by others. Hunkering down in basements and fortified buildings is the last-resort option we witness the survivors in the cities of Ukraine that are under siege. But we are all under siege, whether we recognize it or not.During the Cold War we were told that the Soviet Union not only posed the threat of nuclear Armageddon, but actually had designs on invading the USA. I would try to imagine what that would be like. The logic of invading and trying to control something as sprawling and ungovernable as a whole country escapes me. It is now clear that even a small country like Ukraine is not going to be a pushover.But in the absence of an aggressive incursion ever materializing — knock wood — we are still facing homegrown takeovers of the political system by factions that may not preserve the precious freedoms we have come to take for granted. Behind that wave of anxiety recycling at a frequency of every two years or less — the endless election campaign — we have the threat of another pandemic. And looming over all, on the not-too distant horizon, the emerging, relentless cataclysm of climate change. On what planet do you have to live, to decide that now would be the perfect time to wage a war?Instead of throwing up our hands in despair, let's consider the Design approach.As designers, we are trained to approach development of the new in a systematic way, usually for a client group with fairly clear goals and objectives. One of the fundamental principles of applied design is that we focus our efforts on altering the environment, rather than attempting to alter the people directly, or for that matter, the various members of client organizations. Design stops short at the edge of psychology, or management training, although those systems are also subject to design, in a sense.Another important principle is that the design process works best when conducted as a dialog, or an evolutionary group process. Methods have evolved for gathering and integrating input from large numbers of “stakeholders” or end-users into the design of any program. In fact, this was the topic of my Master's thesis at the Institute of Design. Executed well, this approach generally results in more satisfactory, long-lived solutions than an “ivory-tower” approach, where a strong individual or subgroup develops and dictates decisions on design intent with little or no input from the folks they are trying to effect, the end users and purchasers of the product or service.The process necessarily proceeds in phases, which, while not truly distinct and separate, have rather logical starting and ending points. These are usually defined as something like the following:Phase I — Problem DefinitionPhase II — Concept DesignPhase III — Design DetailingPhase IV — Prototyping & Beta-testingPhase V — Production & DistributionWe might be well-advised to look at our daily Zen practice in the light of these phases. While the design of anything new involves creative intuition, insight, and other immeasurable attributes, the process inevitably cycles through some version of these stages, with measurable results based on acceptance of the target market segments. Of course, the whole project often goes “back to the drawing board” — nowadays the computer interface — again and again, for revisions and re-development. In fact, the design process can be said to never be truly final, as it is responsive to ever-changing conditions and needs. This open-ended viewpoint may be frustrating to those who long for instant closure. In that, it is like zazen training. Design is akin to the Zen outlook, which regards nothing so dependable or “given,” as change. Let's look more thoroughly at the first phase, Problem Definition.The word “problem” has a somewhat negative connotation. Because in the business environment we generally want to emphasize the positive (business can be a somewhat paranoid context), we tend to use the word “opportunity” instead. Or we will refer to it as “Project Definition.” For our purposes, let's stick with “problem,” at least for now.What, exactly, is the “problem”? Why do we want, or feel we need, to establish a Zen Center, for example? Why not just practice alone, assuming we've decided we want, or need, to practice? We can point to many teachings of the Ancestors which admonish us that the “real” Zen is not the province of the loner, but is to be found in the “marketplace” in concert and interaction with our fellow beings. We can also point to the practical, enlightened self interest aspects of forming a sitting group: the social and psychological support of the group for the individual, and the sharing of responsibilities, as well as understanding.As we discussed at length in the “Priest & Householder” segment of the podcast, dana, the practice of generosity, includes providing the conducive environment for practice. Part of that aspect of being truly conducive to Zen practice is the respected tradition of face-to-face training, which has been set aside during the last two years of enforced isolation and social distancing owing to the covid pandemic. As in any creative process, it is natural to challenge any assumptions, including that the in-person form of training may not be necessary. So the stressors around the social dimensions of training — in any area of endeavor, including Zen — become a salient factor in redefining the problem of personal practice.The haiku poem at the beginning of another segment reads:Dharma and KarmaDharma trumps karma,but it is not an escape —Consequences comeSome would fault Zen or Buddhism for failing to adequately address larger issues, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Pestilence, War, Famine, and Death, “…given authority over a quarter of the earth, to kill with sword, famine, and plague, and by means of the beasts of the earth…” Revelations chapter 6, according to Wikipedia, our current Bible, or Tower of Babble, depending on your viewpoint. Add to that the causes and conditions of climate change, covid, and access to nukes, and you have the devil not only in the details, but consequences on a global scale. Great timing for waging a war. But it is not the fault of Zen Buddhism that we are facing these disasters. In fact, Buddhism teaches this very Dharma lesson, that karma is not individuated but collective. We share karmic consequences of the decisions of our leaders, however benighted. It is their very lack of dharma that is the problem.It is possible, from the perspective of Design, to anticipate problems caused by human ignorance and willfulness resulting in interventions in the predictability of natural processes, such as climate cycles. It is within the realm of possibility that we can design and build personal sanctuary to survive the worst that Mother Nature can throw at us, in her efforts to bring about a rebalancing of the planetary forces that we have trifled with for the sake of short-term profit, ephemeral power, and self-aggrandizement. For example, some tried and true approaches can limit the impact of weather upon our domiciles. Such as earth berm housing, covering the shelter with layers of earth to protect and insulate the interior from the elements. Use of unconventional building materials and joining systems can result in earthquake- and hurricane-proof construction, as one of the members of our former affiliate in Charleston, SC specialized in. He and friends rode out Hurricane Hugo in 1989 in one of his buildings, which didn't lose so much as a shingle. Homes in the direct path of blowtorch-like tornadic winds face a different dilemma, but clearing surrounding forest, controlled brush fires and the like, as Native Americans performed as stewards of the forestland, can mitigate the damage.Individual householders can take these drastic steps to protect themselves and their properties, if they have the wherewithal and perseverance. Survivalists have historically built bomb shelters and taken other extreme measures, including arming themselves to the teeth, in preparation for the worst dystopian futures imaginable. But the cost is enormous, both in resource investment, and quality of life.On the other hand, persuading large groups of people, and governments, to forego their wasteful and indulgent lifestyles for the sake of practical adaptation to predictable outcomes of depleting and wasting resources for the sake of short-term goals, is, to say the least, a known issue.The design of government, in the context of a world economy, where every functioning component is increasingly interdependent with every other — another familiar Buddhist principle — is another seemingly intractable problem. It is the “tragedy of the commons” writ large, where so-called leaders of local government gain power running on platforms of populism or nationalism, playing to the weakness of the people who want to believe that their lives and fortunes are independent of those of the rest of humanity around the globe.It is apparently even a daydream in the eye of the wealthy that they, or their heirs, can escape Earth to settle another globe, such as Mars, in due time. This is where science fiction meets fantasy. And reality is left to take the hindmost, along with the Devil. Disposable planets.On yet the other hand, we could adopt a stoic stance of resignation in the face of seemingly insolvable problems, doing what we can on a very local level to prepare for the worst. R. Buckminster Fuller, affectionately referred to as “Bucky,” called his approach “comprehensive anticipatory design science.” The idea is to anticipate emerging problems, causes and conditions — including human survival — on a more comprehensive basis, as predicted by “world-around” trends in resources, technology and behavior. And then, turning the trick, come up with solutions that we will be ready and able to deliver, when everyone else finally recognizes the problem. If it is not already too late, that is.Fuller also had an interesting take on politicians and their role in this recurring dilemma. Paraphrasing, he said that we turn to the politicians for answers. But if they had any answers they wouldn't be politicians. They would be out doing something positive, rather than doing their utmost to maintain status quo for themselves, their sponsors, and their constituents.The latest example is the late Orrin Hatch, who just passed into his next cycle of “rebirth into the cycle of creation of suffering for ourselves or for others,” the last line of the Loving Kindness Sutra. His belief system as a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would not allow that notion. A United States Senator from Utah from 1977 — the year we incorporated Atlanta Soto Zen Center — to 2019, Hatch's 42-year tenure made him the longest-serving Republican U.S. Senator in history. Whether that record of feeding at the trough is worthy of emulation I leave to your discretion.But I urge you to recognize that none of this would surprise Buddha. His teaching was described as his tongue, wide and long. There is nothing so outrageous as to be outside its all-inclusive embrace.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

For every give, There is receive. For every push, A pull. For every inhale, An exhale. For every ebb, There is a flow. Mother Nature reminds us, That the rhythm of life, Occurs in cycles. That every wave that touches the shores, Must pull back. That every winter, Eventually turns to spring. That sunny days can be interrupted by storms, And those clouds will eventually be gone, And the sun will shine once again. So surrender to the wise rhythms of nature, To the ebb and flow of your life. JOURNAL PROMPTS: What storms have you been fighting? How can you surrender to the rhythms of your life?
The Yankees won a whirlwind series against the Texas Rangers that thanks to Mother Nature's timing on both Friday and Saturday turned into a three-game set over two days. The Yankees won two of three games thanks mostly to their stellar starters and bullpen. The offense? It has slowed down a bit but maybe Mother Nature's timing had something to do with that as well. Texas manager Chris Woodward had something silly to say about Gleyber Torres' walk-off home run on Sunday that wasn't even true and some people took it and ran with it and by some people we mean Stacey.

Leddy Hammock Lyrics to “Mother Nature” by B.A. Huffman: “From the moment you were born, you were loved beyond compare. You were cradled in a mothers' arms, and trusted to her care. She loved without condition and provided best she could. She sheltered you with comfort and she taught you bad from good. And with or without children of your own, you can honor your mother if you pass her long along. We all have a mother nature, a place within our self, to nurture lovingkindness and nourish someone else. We all have a mother nature, a love that has no end, so share it with a neighbor, brother, sister, stranger, friend. If you look around the world, there are families of all kind. There are children with two fathers, there are mothers left behind. But we all have love in common, to share with children, pets and friends. Just use your mother nature, so the story never ends. But with or without children of our own, we can honor our mothers if we pass their love along.”
In this episode we touch on a debate question as well as exploring the definition and meaning of Mother Nature. Also we caught up on some comments that took place after our last episode about the medium and what angel numbers represent. To finish the episode off, we discussed Mother's Day and Austin opens up and gets emotional while showing appreciation for his mother. Happy Mother's Day!

The Friday Newsletter | Daily Gardener Community Historical Events Compost Awareness Week 1742 Birth of Jean Senebier, a Swiss pastor and botanist. Where would we be without Senebier? We'd still be breathing, but we'd lack the knowledge that carbon dioxide is consumed by plants and, in turn, that plants produce oxygen as part of the process of photosynthesis. In a nutshell, Senebier's work is crucial because he had learned the function of leaves: capturing carbon for food. Before Senebier, the purpose of leaves and what they did for plants and people was unknown. It was Jean Senebier who said, Observation and experiment are two sisters who help each other. 1754 Birth of Joseph Joubert, French moralist and essayist. Remembered mainly for his Pensées ("Pon-see") or (Thoughts), which were published posthumously, he once wrote, All gardeners live in beautiful places because they make them so. 1856 Birth of Sigmund Freud (books about this person), Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis. Freud once offered this humorous insight: Common sense is a rare flower and does not grow in everyone's garden. Freud offered up a few dispassionate observations regarding the natural world. He once wrote, Beauty has no obvious use, nor is there any clear cultural necessity for it. Yet civilization could not do without it. And he also wrote, Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts. Online there are many photos of Freud and his family in the garden of their home in London. The Freuds left their home in Austria to escape the Nazis with the help of Princess Marie Bonaparte (books about this person), known as Princess George of Greece and Denmark. In 1938, there was a photo of Sigmund with his daughter Anna and Martha in the garden of Marie Bonaparte's house in Paris after arriving on the Orient Express from Vienna. Anna looks happy, Martha looks at a flower, and Sigmund has a little snooze in his garden bed. The Freud home in London was much larger and nicer, and there was a large backyard with a garden. The property still boasts Freud's rose garden and is now the Freud Museum at 20 Maresfield Gardens in Hampstead, London NW3, England. In 2008, the French botanist and biologist Francis Hallé wrote, Everyone knows that going to the garden does not solve the problems of everyday life, yet it relativizes them and makes them more bearable. Sigmund Freud had this late regret: 'I lost my time; the only important thing in life is gardening.' 1925 On this day, at the age of 29, the great twentieth-century reformer of Japanese gardens, Mirei Shigemori (books about this person), changed his name from Kazuo ("Kah-zoh") to Mirei (“me-RAY”). The name change was a tribute to the 19th-century French painter of pastoral landscapes and daily life, Jean Francois Millet (books about this person), who once said, It is the treating of the commonplace with the feeling of the sublime that gives to art its true power. In 1932, Mirei founded the Kyoto Garden Society. Mirei practiced the art of tea - Chado ("Cha-doe") and the art of flower arranging - Ikebana ("ick-aye-bah-na"). Mirei once advised, People who try to do research on the garden have to very seriously study the way of tea. Mirei wrote eighty-one books, including the Illustrated Book on the History of the Japanese Garden in 26-volumes, released in 1938. Mother Nature played an important role in shaping Mirei's life when the Muroto Typhoon destroyed much of Kyoto in 1934. Many sacred temples, shrines, and gardens were wiped out in the life-altering storm. In response, Mirei took action. He used his own money and became one of the first designers to survey every garden in Japan - creating records for restoration if they were ever damaged or destroyed. The tour provided a valuable service to his country and was also a means for Mirei to learn garden design - with a particular focus on incorporating rocks and stone. As a garden designer, Mirei was entirely self-taught. Throughout his fifty-year career, Mirei designed over two hundred gardens, including the checkerboard North Garden/Moss Garden at Tofukuji ("Tofu-kah-gee") Temple, Kyoto (1939), the dry landscape at Zuiho-in ("zwee-ho een" (1961), and the garden at the oldest shrine in Kyoto City, the Matsuo Taisha ("maht-sue-oh Ty-sha"(1975). The shrine is dedicated to the gods of water in western Kyoto and was an important place for sake-brewing families to worship over the centuries. In 2020, the second edition of landscape architect Christian Tschumi's book, Mirei Shigemori - Rebel in the Garden, was released. In it, Christian breaks down the profound influences and meanings behind Mirei's most iconic gardens. Christian once wrote, Shigemori's body of work is a compelling manifesto for continuous cultural renewal. Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Layered Garden by David Culp This book came out in 2012, and the subtitle is Design Lessons for Year-Round Beauty from Brandywine Cottage. Well, I'm a huge David Culp fan, and I feel like I'm telling you about this book just in time for summer because this book can help you set the stage for how you want your garden to look all year long. And since the summer lays entirely before us, this book is just in time for you. If you're planning a new garden or a garden redesign, you could do a lot worse than having David Culp be your guide. Laura Springer Ogden wrote a review that's right on the cover of the book, And it says, Garden-making in its finest form is a celebration of life and love - and David and this book epitomize this. I couldn't agree more. And by the way, you'll probably recognize the photographer's name for David's book as well - it's Rob Cardillo. Rob always does such a fantastic job photographing gardens, so this book's photos are top-notch. Now David kicks things off in this book with a quote from Francis Bacon, it's from Of Gardens (1625) - and it's one of my favorite garden quotes: There ought to be gardens for all the months in the year, in which severally things of beauty may be then in season. Of course, this sets the stage for what David is trying to teach us: how to have a garden that looks good all year long. Now I thought I would share this quick little sweet story that David shares at the beginning of his book. It gives all of us some great ideas - especially if you have young gardeners in your life. David wrote One fall, when I was about nine years old, my grandmother Thorpe gave me a bag of bulbs and said, "you go out and plant them." I felt more than a little trepidation. I had never planted anything without her supervision. But she reassured me. "You can do it. You won't go wrong." Her generosity could have been ruinous to her flower border. But I got the bulbs planted with no mishaps. The next spring, when they bloomed, I almost burst with pride. When she told all her friends, "David did that." And from that moment, I knew I was a gardener. And after all these years, it remains the core of how I define myself. I love that story for a couple of different reasons. Number one, it really does tee up what David is talking about here in The Layered Garden because as a gardener, if you dismiss specific categories of plants out of hand, like the flowers that you get with spring bulbs, then you'll likely miss one of the layers that can help make your garden beautiful all through the year. Now the other reason I like this story is for practical purposes. I hear all the time from new gardeners who are so anxious about planting bulbs, And now I'm going to say, "Hey, if David Culp - as a nine-year-old - can do it, you can too. And then last but not least, I hope this plants a tiny seed with all of us that if we are interacting with kids in the garden, we definitely need to introduce them to planting spring-flowering bulbs because the result in the spring is just so impressive and unique. It also instills that sense of pride that you can get when your garden work goes to plan, and you experience that first flush of color. It's so wonderful. Throughout David's book, he reinforces this concept of the layered garden, but I will give you just a little snippet of how he introduces it here. He goes into much more detail and offers many more tips - wonderful little nuggets and tiny ideas - for making this look work for you. Here's how he introduces the concept in his book. Garden layers are made up of a variety of plants- some with complimentary or contrasting colors, others with interesting shapes or textures. Layers are more than just perennials or annuals or bulbs or ground covers. They're more than just the ground layer of plants. That's the sole focus of many gardens. Beautiful combinations are certainly possible, even in the tiniest scale. Think of dwarf Solomon's Seal underplanted with moss - that makes a precious six-inch-high picture. But to get the most interest from any garden, all the layers need to be considered from the ground level to the middle level of shrubs and small trees up to the canopy trees. Growing plants on vertical surfaces, walls, fences, trellises, arbors, and other supports even climbing up trees, when we can be sure that they will do no harm, adds to the picture by bringing flowers and foliage to eye level and above. So there you go. An introduction to what David is talking about when he says The Layered Garden. You might be intuitively doing some layering already in your garden as you look for more ways to garden - looking for different plants - or finding and curating other ideas that you can put in your garden. But I think what David adds is his mastery because he knows how to make all of this work in a very cohesive way that's pleasing to the eye. David's book talks about how to do a layered garden and design it - which is probably the key for most of us because we often don't think about that. If we layer the garden, it can just happen organically. But then, sometimes, we can end up with a little bit of a confused look. Next, David talks about maintaining the layered garden, which is very important. Now there are two other aspects of this book that I want to share with you. So the first chapter talks about the layered garden, and it walks you all through that. But The second chapter introduces you to his garden at Brandywine Cottage. This is important because you get a garden tour here, and David shows you how he's put this layered garden technique to work right on his property. By the way, this is not David's first at-bat gardening; he's designed many gardens. So, all of his work is coming together, culminating at Brandywine. And then the last chapter, I think, is one of the most important chapters of the book. Here David shares his signature plants that he advises we consider incorporating into our gardens throughout the seasons. So, this is a great list. This is a list of plants from a garden designer - a garden lover - and someone who works in gardens every day. So right there, that's an invaluable part of this book. This book is 312 pages of layered gardening, the beauty of the garden at Brandywine, and then some of David's most treasured garden design secrets and favorite plants. You can get a copy of The Layered Garden by David Culp and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $18. Botanic Spark 1682 On this day, Louis XIV (books about this person) of France moved his court to the Palace of Versailles. Originally, Versailles was built as a country house. Nine miles from Paris, Versailles was ideally situated near neighboring forests for hunting. Today Versailles is known for its opulence - the Hall of Mirrors, stunning art, and lush gardens. The massive gardens at Versailles are the most famous in the world. The garden is home to over 1,000 statues, and in the Facebook group for the show, I shared a stunning photo of the garden sculptures at Versailles surrounded by sandbags for protection during WWII. In 2006, Ian Thompson wrote a fantastic book called, The Sun King's Garden: Louis XIV, Andre le Notre and the Creation of the Gardens of Versailles. Ian believes that Louis XIV may also have been history's most passionate gardener. Louis, the absolute monarch, was known as the “Sun King,” specifically designed the central axis to be east-west to track the sun's path across the garden. Louis worked closely for forty years with the low-born gardener André Le Nôtre to devise the original design and geometrical layout. Temperament-wise, André and Louis could not have been more different. Louis was driven and merciless. André was funny, thoughtful, insightful, and easy-going. In 1979, Versailles, including the garden, was declared a World Heritage Site. And in 2014, Alain Baraton wrote Gardener of Versailles: My Life in the World's Grandest Garden. As the gardener-in-chief, Alain lives on the grounds at Versailles. Alain has worked in the gardens, orchards, and fields for four decades. This memoir reveals Alain's connection to the grandest garden in the world. And in case you're wondering, Alain believes fall is the best time to visit. Alain oversaw the recovery from the worst natural disaster ever to hit Versailles. On Christmas night through the 26th of December in 1999, a monster winter storm with winds of up to 105 mph struck the grounds of Versaille. Alain watched in horror as century trees let go of the earth in response. In a little over an hour, the storm felled 10,000 trees at Versailles, including two tulip trees planted by Marie-Antoinette in 1783 in Trianon and a Corsican pine planted for Napoleon in 1810. Alain said, It was like the apocalypse. In one hour, 200 years of trees were destroyed. But, miraculously, all of the statues survived unharmed. Although, there was one account that I read of a tree falling on one of the great statues. And as it hit the ground, the branches parted as if to spare that statue. It gave me chills just reading that. It was quite the story. Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.
Writer Nell Frizzell has spent years agonising about whether climate change should stop her from having a second child. She invites listeners to join her as she strives to make an intensely personal decision about her future. As the biological and doomsday clocks tick away, Nell calls upon friends, campaigners and experts at different stages of life to explain their reproductive decisions, in the hope that the path to a conclusion will reveal itself. Nell speaks to Dr Matt Winning, comedian and author of Hot Mess, a book about raising a baby and understanding climate change. She also hears from musician Blythe Pepino, who formed and then disbanded the campaign group BirthStrike, and Les Knight, a campaigner for the extinction of the human race. Finally, she interviews reproductive epidemiologist Dr Shanna Swan, whose book Count Down predicts the potential end of natural conception.

Episode Highlights [04:24] Stem Cells and Epigenetics We lose millions of cells every minute. We get new cells from stem cells. Dr Bruce Lipton was cloning stem cells in 1967. Genetic determinism is false, as genes are merely blueprints. Your mind is the one that activates and modifies the genes. Genes do not cause diseases; instead, they correlate with them. [13:56] Genes vs. Consciousness Believing in genetic determinism can make you feel like a powerless victim. Epigenetics is about controlling your genes and knowing that consciousness is creating disease. Changing your biology and behaviour can change your life. Before you can control your genes, you need to learn how epigenetics works and how to do it. Our brains are computers; you need suitable programming. [19:35] The Power of Programs Remember that you have the power to exert control over your physiological systems and attain a healthy body. Thinking, which takes up 95% of your life, redirects the focus of consciousness inside your head and allows autopilot programming to take over. Your programs determine your life and mentality, so pay attention to them. [29:34] Three Ways to Reprogram For a Healthy Body Our two minds — the conscious and subconscious — function and learn differently. Putting your brain into theta using hypnosis can help you change a program. You need practice and repetition to create a solid program. Energy psychology is about looking at your life to find out your programs and changing the subconscious programs. [46:57] Spirituality Frequency If a television breaks, the broadcast still keeps going. Your body is the television, and you're the broadcast. In a sense, this means that you cannot die. Listen to the full episode for research on cellular electrical activity and its correlation with mothers and their children! [51:25] What Happens After Death We can keep our minds conscious about what happens in the world, but we can tune into intuition so that the deceased become part of the field of information. Communicating with the deceased at an intuitive level is possible. [52:25] How Fear Affects Programs The issues that plague the world, such as pollution and war, are created by programs. We make antibodies before we're even born. Antigens stimulate the immune response and are what our bodies use to identify pathogens. If you have a healthy body, stop looking for bad signs or symptoms. Looking or the symptoms of a disease can create them. Fear causes immune system shutdown, vulnerability, and conflict. [1:05:17] Negative Impacts of Corporations A corporation's first and foremost rule is to make money for shareholders. Pharmaceutical companies only care about making money, robbing people of their chance at a healthy body. Science has no more freedom because corporations control the flow of research. If you want to hear more about how big healthcare corporations and pharmaceutical companies exploit people for profit, listen to the full episode! [1:11:09] Does Medicine Cure or Kill? An article by Dr Barbara Starfield, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2000, revealed that medicine is the third leading cause of death in the US. Iatrogenic illness refers to illness caused by medical treatment. A few years ago, an article in the British Medical Journal came up with the same results. Both prescription and illegal drugs kill people every year. We can't even trust vitamins because they're being regulated as drugs. 7 Powerful Quotes ‘Here's the point, most everybody out here has been programmed by the belief that genes provide the character of our lives, that they came from our parents and they determine our traits. And if we don't like our traits, you can't change the genes.' ‘How you see the world will determine which version of protein will be created from a gene, like a wiser realm.' ‘Then epigenetics says that my consciousness is creating this. And therefore if I change my consciousness, I change my biology, change my behaviour, I can do anything with it.' ‘Consciousness is you. Your specific identity, your spiritual domain, you, here. The rest of the brain back here is called subconscious, below conscious.' ‘You weren't there for most of the programming. It started even before you were born. And it went a whole year from zero to one — you weren't there. They went from one to two who are in therapy, you're getting programmed every day.' ‘So when the TV breaks, did the broadcast stop? The answer's no. How do you know I said, we'll get another TV, plug it in, turn it on and tune it to the station back on again. And here comes apart because this is called reincarnation, you cannot die.' ‘Evolution is community coming together in harmony. And today's world is the antithesis of evolution and evolution as one separate the world and then make polarised groups charging each other go well then there's no unity.'

John Belizaire: Thanks for having me Seth. It's a pleasure looking forward to this conversation. Seth Cysewski: Absolutely. So I'm very fascinated about what you're doing. But, why don't we start just with the basics. Maybe if you could tell me more about John the person and and how and then maybe eventually how you ended up working around clean energy challenges. John Belizaire: I like to say I'm not an energy guy I'm actually a software guy I yeah studied computer science undergrad started my career at Intel really helping bring software to the personal computer and for the next. Twenty plus years I was ah following my passion really creating new companies I've been an entrepreneur. I hate to say serial entrepreneur because it's so cliche. But, it's true I started my career in the e-commerce space and primarily focus on selling technology to large enterprises I used to carry around lego blocks to big financial services companies and and and explain to them the future of software will be built like this you know and they're like well how much are those lego blocks these these are five bucks but the ones I'm gonna sell you. They're like a million dollars and so enterprise software has really been my focus and and most recently I was in the insurance software space did some work helping insurance the insurance industry sort of transition into the digital realm using data and analytics to make better decisions and then about four years ago I had just finished that experience and I was taking a bit of a break doing some writing I pen a blog where I sort of write down all my learnings and a close friend of mine and mentor who had been an investor in a number of my companies suggested that I look at this business that he was working on. And I said what business would you be doing that I would be focused on because you always do industrial companies. I'm a software guy and he explained well you've got to look at this one. It's the intersection between renewable energy and blockchain. And the only thing I heard in that sentence was blockchain I heard of that and that might be interesting and that started a 4 year journey until today where I am the CEO of Soluna Computing, a company focused on unlocking the potential of renewable energy. And by using computing as a catalyst so that's a quick tour. I'm from New York originally father of 2 two girls, extra extra data there. Seth Cysewski: It's awesome. I'm a father of one daughter and daughters the are amazing. They the best for sure. So you got a you got a good computing background and so they're bringing you in to Soluna. John Belizaire: Exactly. Seth Cysewski: Tell me more about Soluna Computing and I mean obviously the intersection of blockchain and renewable energy sounds very fascinating. So tell me about the problem. Maybe that Soluna is setting out to solve and and a little bit more about that. John Belizaire: Exactly, you know I get that a lot. You know we don't really have lots of cocktail parties these days given when we're recording this this podcast, but the the questions I get when people sort of asking me what are you doing now is like "What are you up to?" and "What does the Soluna do?" "What's the problem you solve?" and what I explained to them is that we solve a little unknown problem which happens to be a huge problem for renewable energy and the renewable energy transition. And that is that most renewable power plants, up to 30% of their power production never actually make it to the grid. Let me say that again over $700 to $ 750 billion dollars has been spent in the last two years alone clean tech clean energy infrastructure and a host of technology to bring more green electrons to the grid. But when you zoom in on the power plants that are actually producing those electrons big wind farms big solar farms spread around the country and around the world, up to about 30% of their power never makes it to the grid and the reason is because the grid was designed based on this concept that energy the energy that's produced must be synchronized with the energy that's used this concept of sort of direct synchronization. So it that grid infrastructure which is which is very brittle and inflexible. At this point really was focused on ah power plants that can be dispatched by the grid operator and controlled and and fired on literally you know fired on right? And as you begin to replace those old legacy fuels, coal plants etc, with green power plants, well the grid is no longer in charge of dispatching those power plants mother nature sets that schedule if the wind is blowing really heavily in in Oklahoma, there'll be lots of energy produced by the big wind farms out in the field there and there may not be any users of that because people might be asleep at night in Oklahoma and they're not. Many large pipes or transmission lines to take that power perhaps to down south where people might be ready at a party and use that energy. So that's the problem. There is lots of wasted energy which reduces the amount of renewable energy that you can actually bring on grid. That's the problem. How do we solve it the way we solve it is we bring ah another interesting user of energy that happens to be quite flexible right? What their grid needs is a user of power that can ramp up and ramp down if they can control that part of the equation. Then they can bring more power to the grid. So what we're bringing is these specially built onsite scalable data centers that absorb that wasted energy. We actually will use that energy instead of spilling it and we convert it to global, clean low cost computing and what type of computing are we focused on? Well we're not going to run your email. We're not going to run your e-commerce applications, your mission-critical applications. What we run are what we call batchable applications, anything that can be paused and restarted, put to sleep, that sort of thing because power might not be available. The types of applications that do that or any or anything that are highly compute intensive, okay, and have this ability to sort of pause themselves and examples of that are bitcoin mining. And kind of crypto mining application, AI, and machine Learning. So I you know write my Peloton in the morning as lots of data collected on me and then the next day it's a better. It's a better ride that's happening in the background in a model or or AI system that we never see but it's become a big part of just about every application out there. Scientific computing, for example, is a host of different applications that represent a a sizable slice of computing these days that is perfect for this type of data center and that's what we put inside of our facilities. And then we build these facilities around these green, these green power plants all around the world and that adds retroactively to flexibility that the grid needs. Seth Cysewski: Thank you, I have some follow up so that's really great. So just so I understand this, when I think about traditional legacy power generation, and we were just in Tennessee and they have peaker plants there using natural gas, right? They're just designed to to fire up when they're needed and so traditionally what you're saying is the energy energy generation was the one that was flexible but with renewables it's not as flexible. So in turn you're making the usage flexible and we're not quite there with. John Belizaire: Exactly. Seth Cysewski: Batteries which would be another another solution with this wasted or stranded energy which we could store and so essentially we're just repurposing computing. That's already going to be done and just moving it in to that 30% that that normally they wouldn't hit the grid typically. John Belizaire: Exactly, you got it Seth, basically computing is a capability something that you can do anywhere in the world. It is flexible in the sense that you can run a a computing process just about anywhere. Not every computing application is resilient enough to be put in an environment where it's not running in a 24 by 7 facility, but there are now a host of applications that are perfect for that environment. And what we're doing is basically taking the insatiable demand for energy created by computing because we all walk around with computers in our in our pockets, we talk to magic assistants at home that use computing somewhere in the cloud, and it just so happens that with a little lateral thinking, that opportunity or that technology can be applied here where a solution is needed today. It needs to be scalable and it needs to solve this wasted energy problem in the near term not in the long term. You're right Seth, batteries are also a solution. They're perfect. You can store the energy deploy it but there are some problems there because batteries are companies too. They have to at some point pull the power down when the power is cheap and that's usually when all that congestion and mismatches and then they need to put the power back on the grid at some point. The power is high so they work on an arbitrage model. Most people don't know that and so if you're in a situation where there's lots of renewables in a particular area, well the power is not going to be high very often and so it becomes very hard for the battery to actually be profitable and they're not scalable from a cost perspective yet. So we're not saying we're a replacement for batteries and transmission. What we're saying is, flexible computing is another somewhat counterintuitive solution to the problem. Seth Cysewski: Now that's very fascinating. So then who would your, it seems like to me that maybe you would have customers on both ends right? So you're either, you're probably working either and you can correct me, either with with the owners of these power generations or maybe even the people that sign these PPAs. I don't know if you work with them at all on the one end and then on the on the other end, you're you're working with computing companies or people that can then utilize your computing you you call it, batchable? Maybe you can tell me more about your customers on both ends and and how that works from their perspective. John Belizaire: That's right. Yeah sure on the power side. We work with what we call power partners they're exactly as you described, they're independent power producers, they're large utilities that have big, you know, assets that are renewable around the country, and big funds, infrastructure funds who deploy capital to build out projects. They may not be the development company. So sometimes they buy a site from a developer and then they build it out. Finance it and operate it. Those are the are the folks that are our power counter parties if you will on the on the other side. We focus on large enterprises enterprises that have a big data science arm or a growing one. And, they are really concerned about 2 things. Number 1: the rising cost of the computing as a percentage of their total revenue. Those Amazon bills start to add up after a while and the second is since what they're doing, this computing is so intense, is very compute intense. It's big. You know the data corps they're dealing with are quite large constantly processing them. The data scientists are now within their communities talking about whether you know are we destroying the world I mean pretty much every application has a data element to it. And are we essentially subsidizing the continuation of legacy fuels because we live inside of these not so flexible data centers that have to be on 24 7, 5 to 9. etc. But what if I told you I can take that slice of compute load, or that slice of computing processes? We like to call them jobs and maybe they represent single digits 2% to 3% of your total computing within an enterprise and move them over to these data centers that are catalyzers for renewable energy, that could be pretty compelling for a company that helps them with their ESG goals. They can point to their applications being directly powered by green electrons and, you know from a data scientist perspective, they just want to have lower cost access to computing that is good for the planet. Seth Cysewski: That makes sense. This reminds me, so this I probably is a good segue to talk about, you mentioned Blockchain and I think when most people think of, or maybe I don't know about most people, think a lot of people that hear blockchain think of bitcoin and cryptocurrency. You know some people are really into it and others are, you know, a little further out and so and they're just hearing about it, but I'm wondering, I was listening to your your recent financial call, and whatnot, so you guys are scaling pretty quickly which is really awesome, and I believe that bitcoin mining or cryptocurrency mining probably makes up a majority ah of your business right now. John Belizaire: Yes. Seth Cysewski: We're talking about like the intersection of how these come together and you're mentioning some of these companies are are a little concerned about their data usage. I think you know bitcoin so I'm just going to point out critics point out I guess that bitcoin can be really detrimental towards climate progress. Not that anyone anyone's going to stop it necessarily, but a recent Columbia paper noted that but bitcoin's currently using over 20 Million metric tons of CO2 each year, and China alone could be up to 130 Million metric tons by itself in 2024. So these are like super big numbers and I'm wondering about. It makes sense what you're doing and and why that would be a really good for that. So that's awesome. But maybe you could talk to me more about like from your perspective what is bitcoin or cryptocurrencies role in in a clean energy future. John Belizaire: Fantastic! So there are 2 narratives Seth around bitcoin 1 narrative is that it's an incredibly novel technology that could reshape the future of financial services but it's got this terrible side effect. And you've alluded to a number of examples of that. The other narrative is that it is an incredible catalyzer for the future of financial services that are not tied to authoritarian governments and gives people financial freedom money and wealth preservation is now democratized on a global basis and that's made possible by an incredible technology. And, the energy use is a feature, it is not a bug. It's a feature and so I want to talk about the second narrative because it's very easy to get access to information about the first narrative. It's sexy. It sells papers and online clicks and so forth and unfortunately it's a snapshot of the truth. The truth is that the young bitcoin industry was not very focused on its effect on climate and. Probably wasn't really aware of the eventual effect on climate and the reason was because it was a very small network really driven by a vision of really you know, bringing back the control of financial services and money to the people. And it was also driven by cracking some pretty challenging problems to create a decentralized form of money and you've got to solve some real real challenges, right? So as a result you started to see essentially two bitcoins. In fact, there are really 2 bitcoins. One is Bitcoin the capital B the other is bitcoin the lowercase b. Bitcoin capital B is the protocol that powers the global Bitcoin network which is now approaching over close to $1 Trillion in total value. It is used by hundreds of millions of people around the world and the underlying capabilities for providing security is what the crypto mining aspect or bitcoin mining aspect of the platform is, the platform is designed or the protocol, is designed to use mining as a mechanism to protect the blockchain. Transactions that occur on it and thereby protecting the assets that people are trusting the platform to deliver and so mining has as the value of the of the currency. The the lower case b has has increased mining has become a larger and larger enterprise if you will around the platform, and as a result it's matured significantly over the last decade. Number one, you're starting to see a re-shift. There's a movement underway, literally, of companies leaving China. Mostly driven by China kicking them out. They're, you know, domiciling themselves, repatriating themselves around the world in all sorts of different places. They're primarily first driven by where can I find cheap power. But now there's a sentiment around a really want to find the cheapest green power there is. Over $100 Million approaching over $1 Billion invested in very mature companies run by professionals. You know, some of the early versions of the company were run by young folks who didn't have a sort of, you know, business acumen, and they were not backed by institutional capital that asked really tough questions about what you're doing, and so as a result you now have companies much like ourselves out there that are taking a completely different approach to reshaping the next chapter in the Bitcoin landscape. And so the positive narrative is that the bitcoin mining is now seeing its role as a dual purpose one is protecting the Bitcoin network and the second is finding a way to become more sustainable. And catalyzed to renewable energy ah transform transition and bitcoin small b, by the way, is gone from, you know, being really so you know this speculative asset, actually playing a very important role in the global economy in asset allocations for some of the largest asset management companies in the world. It's now made its way into pension pension plans people are getting paid in it. It's maturing. It's a young thirteen year old technology. And it reminds me of another technology. That's a little older. It started when I started my entrepreneurship career, it had this sort of similar concept of you know capital letter lowercase letter, and it was focused on bringing the world's information to 1 digital place, and it eventually evolved to e-commerce, and then it evolved to connecting people, and it evolved to pretty much everything, and by now you you can guess who the character is I'm describing, and that's the internet. It has the same characteristics as Bitcoin. It evolved over a 20 year period and most of that development happened in the the last decade or so, and we now take for granted the role. The internet has played, and so I often say you should never underestimate the potential technology and the fact that it can really advance way beyond your current expectations, and it can happen very quickly and Bitcoin is gaining momentum and we're proud to be helping to make that happen. Seth Cysewski: That's fascinating. I thought I was there, I used to dial into my local BBS and I remember Prodigy. I remember when we got my first Encarta CD, it changed all my school projects. Yeah, it's interesting and I hear what you're saying about as it becomes, I almost say more legitimate, but maybe more mature, as a process and as a currency that the stakeholders are more mature too and the things that they're looking for and their external pressures are are different. John Belizaire: Exactly. That's exactly right. You know the public companies that are doing this for example, their shareholders put tremendous pressure on them, like we need to know where your powers are sources. And you now need to be carbon zero or negative right? And so there's a lot of pressure. And as more of the industry moves to countries that have rule of law that have access to these renewable resources and this pressure to put to to leverage those over others that industry you know has no choice but to mature and sort of accept those those things. So it's interesting to see the transition over to in the short four years that I've been involved. Seth Cysewski: Yeah, no, that that makes a lot of sense. We were just out in in rural America, and we have some direct solar investments for for our company, and I remember talking to some of the economic development officials out there and they were saying that it's not even a competitive advantage. It's a requirement now. So their communities need to have green power. Otherwise you're not going to recruit in any sort of job creating companies, because that's a requirement from them, and so I see that parallel as just being really a requirement moving forward, and that's everywhere. So it's a very exciting I think trajectory that that we're starting to to see. Maybe tell me a little bit more. This is all really fascinating, can you tell me more about maybe your company and the challenges you guys face right now like as you as you guys are scaling? John Belizaire: Indeed. Seth Cysewski: And, what are you guys running into and and what are you doing about it. John Belizaire: Yeah, good. Good, great question. Once a year Seth, I write what I like to call sort of the kickoff letter, and it's usually right after the holidays we we we have this shutdown period where we we really encourage everyone to sort of take a real break. You know, stay off of email and whatnot and I try to be an example, but usually I fail, but recently, I guess I would say but before when there was travel, I'd force myself to go someplace where there's only but just rocks and sand around and you know there's nothing to connect to. But after that, after that break, I feel that it's really important to give the team sort of 1 focusing message around what's going to be important in this coming year as we execute and and build out the next phase of our business and in my note this year, the the overarching word if you will and it's usually 1 word that I sort of sort zoom around, and is called scale. How do you scale the business that we're in, and I used a question that Peter Thiel asks a lot too. Set up what I wanted to ask the team to do and the question is if let's say you have a 10 year vision you know everybody sort of sees a picture of themselves a few years out if you have a 10 year vision to do something. Why can't you do it in six months another way, to ask the question is what's the 1 thing you can do in the next six months to get you closer or to ensure that you'll reach that 10 year vision? Everything we're doing right now as an organization going from 50 Megawatts, you know, about 3 data centers around the country, to building an entire fleet of hundreds to if not Gigawatts of facilities around the world is going to be focused on finding new and clever ways to scale our operations the way we operate our facilities the way we manage inventory. We have thousands of pieces of equipment in our data centers. The way we recruit employees, the way we communicate as a very large distributed organization, the way we raise capital at scale, you know, going from tens of millions dollars of financing to hundreds of millions of dollars of of financing, this is a very capital intensive business to build data centers and operate them., these are all things that we need to figure out. How do you create a iconic brand around renewable energy and catalyzing renewables using the blockchain and crypto without ah without that brand being associated with hubris right? We have to be a humble participant in the new community that we're part of to help to drive the future of this industry. These are the questions that we pose ourselves here at Soluna, that I asked the team to think about, and on a regular basis. We generate ideas on how to tackle those gnarly problems around scale. And that's what we've been working on. Yeah, it's hard to tell how long it's been in '22, but I feel like a year has passed already in the in the short two weeks that we've been back to the office but, there's a lot to do Seth, and you know, our big challenges are are really around scaling the operation in a way that is repeatable, we learn from quickly, and continue to grow. Seth Cysewski: Is the grid and the way it's structured one of them for you? John Belizaire: Yeah, so the grid is a is a very rigid thing in many ways right? So it's technically architected for a legacy approach to grid a lot of the laws that govern grid operations in just about every region around the country are also legacy and they actually create barriers to innovation and they also ah slow down. Very much the rate with which you can deploy new and interesting approaches to actually bring the very thing that the grid needs which is the flexibility and so, there is a lot of challenge related to that we ah spent a lot of our time as a company. Educating, and this isn't new to me, when you're when you're a new technologist. You're constantly a missionary. You've got to train folks and and explain to them why they should do something different that they that they've always done. You know all that. All that smells is risk for them and when you're in the business of providing reliable always on power to the country, one of the greatest countries in the world, risk is not something that's in your vocabulary and so, what we've done in addition to the technology that we use for our data centers, the way we, you know, manage the facilities the way we deal with jobs and everything we've actually built a ah set of principles structures both financial and technical in nature. To mitigate a lot of the risk associated with placing our. Next to the power plants, tying it into the grid, we spend a lot of time, you know, talking to the grid operators and, you know, government officials associated with the regions that we're in to make sure we're not doing anything that threatens the service that they are mandated to deliver, but only enhancing it right? That's improving it and making it more flexible and actually allowing them to to deliver I like to say that you know what's our mission, our mission is to help deliver clean green low-cost power locally, and deliver clean, sustainable computing on a global basis and so that does require lots of education especially when you have words like blockchain and crypto and anything, any of your marketing materials. Forget about it. You better be ready to do a lot of education. Seth Cysewski: I hear you, so I guess maybe, if you could, you have a very unique perspective and a lot of experience here, especially with what you're doing looking into your crystal ball. You're talking about a tenure like exercise. But maybe you could tell me what you think for you, the the next five and 10 years looks like, either for the grid or you could even add in or talk about maybe the future of of how computing is either executed or powered? John Belizaire: Yeah, you know I think that there are 2 perspectives we have on the future over here. Number one is that the transition to green power is inevitable at this point. We're basically all sitting in a fast-moving Tesla heading toward the renewable energy transition, and by the way, we're probably nobody's probably driving the car. We're just hanging out there talking about how, you know, can you believe we used to power the world by burning old pieces of, you know, households, and now it's completely powered by electrons that are are powered by Mother Nature essentially because that is the case you're going to see massive amounts of change. You know who are in the back of that who are in the back of that that vehicle? They're not energy experts, they're like, you know, dumb guys like me who don't know anything about energy but have brought sort of experience from other places to really help fight the the the good climate fight. So their technologists PHDs, data scientists, software engineers, all sorts of people who usually don't have anything to do with power power will become about computing. And that's because you're going to see more ah science and technology inserted into the grid to improve its flexibility. Its ability to sort of evolve almost future-proofing, if you will, the grid and I see that in a short period of time. All utilities are now sort of waking up. You're also seeing a change of the guard, Seth, at these places. Even legacy people need to be moved out, I hate to say, and new open minded people around technology and sort of finding ways to to address things. For example, I met an amazing young entrepreneur who built this drone system powered by AI that flies over the power lines to evaluate maintenance and things that can be done to reduce forest fires and potential issues that could significantly impact grid stability. But never thought about that right? You're just used to guys drive around trucks. They're on a maintenance and they'll eventually get to no. But if you had these systems that are constantly checking, you could you could prevent a lot of things happening so we're seeing that you know that that fast moving Tesla sort of evolving on the on the energy side. On the compute side I think you're going to see a step change in what we describe as data centers today. Data centers are these you know Ferraris, fast-moving cars, super resilient. And we're building a truck. We're building a facility that is specifically designed to be in the rugged environments far away from ah metro places super flexible and and and and resilient and agile in these environments. And it's going to be powering what will be and I believe today is probably 1 of the fastest growing segments in computing today and that's all of these batchable and AI-based environments. I read something that described it as somewhere around 20% is where it is today but it's growing at 40 to 50%. I don't think I know a single software company that doesn't have some sort of data science behind their business. Actually it sort of you got to ask the question if they don't right? Compass Real Estate, one of the most amazing real estate companies I was reading about a fact, the founder found it has a Masterclass, you know, the Masterclass app, and a very good friend friend of mine heads up data science for him ,and he explained to me how that whole thing works. And it's more of a data science company than it is a real estate company. To be honest, and it's just fascinating to me, that that is really touching just about everything in the world at this point. And so in 10 years, that's going to be an immutable truth and it will spawn these different types of platforms where you can run those things in a way that is good for the planet. So that's our perspective on it and I really hope you know that the young folks, anybody who was young, you know, technologist or if you're in school listening to this, I think there's a lot of opportunity to jump into this industry. You know I talk a lot about the need for some sort of climate Peace Corps or something like that, you know, where before you go work for Google or go work for Google for a year but then come back and just like jump in and see if you can bring a fresh look at, the energy systems of the world and see if you can help to make that. Part of helping us survive all of these climate issues. Seth Cysewski: I love how youth is just so open. They just they haven't been taught. They haven't learned what what's what they can and cannot do yet. Yeah, the sky's the limit. John Belizaire: Exactly. Nobody's pounded into them. They know we don't do it like that, we do not do that. So don't even think about it. You know and learn behavior is what I like to call it. You know they they haven't exposed a lot of learned behavior yet they're just they're just raw and that's what you need when you're looking at hard problems like this. Seth Cysewski: Well I think that leads me into to my last question then, and maybe it's along these lines maybe not. What advice would you have for you know any business leaders or people that want to make a difference entering maybe emerging markets, either in the sustainability space, you know, in the future space. John Belizaire: Yeah. So the way I got into the Soluna business, I didn't share at at the beginning, but that project my friend asked me to go run it. It was actually in in Southern Morocco and it was in a place otherwise known as the kite surfing capital of the world. Amazing wind, really high speed. I don't really keep my hair very long. So it's hard to to show you film of how fast but when you go to the airport. There are really 2 types of... Seth Cysewski: You look aerodynamic. John Belizaire: There are only 2 types of people at the airport. Renewable energy people and kite surfers. I'm talking about Olympic-class kite surfers in Dahkla, Morocco, and what was fascinating to me spending time trying to develop a wind farm there, and develop, you know, and get the idea for shifting our our whole focus during the pandemic to this computing company, was that there is so much energy poverty on that continent, really caused by 2 important things. Number 1, you don't have an economy to support the energy so you have this sort of chicken and egg problem like why are you building power, there's not enough use for the power. And 2, bringing in financial constructs. You know, attracting capital to build out resources is very challenging. And, by the way, it's not like there aren't resources to be developed. There's and there's an incredible abundance of natural resources hydro wind solar that can be turned into. Ah, economic growth. You know by building power plants and the solution we've developed helps to drive that. That's really what got me super passionate about that. This could be a new way to build renewable energy and so I think the message for folks out there is spend some time over there. If you really want to understand what it's like to not experience what you enjoy here, which is you know, clean, eventually green power that is consistent and persistent that helps to drive our our economy, go to a place where a young child doesn't have access to to medical services because there's no power to provide it and see if there's there's a way for you to help there. I would encourage everyone to do that to get a real sense of the opportunities for changing the world in a major way by solving problems at home that can be brought elsewhere. And that's the message I would leave with folks out there. Seth Cysewski: Thank you for sharing that. That's great. Well John it has been really lovely. I just want to tell you I don't think I was aware of the solution, and not really so much. The problem outside of batteries before kind of looking into what what you were doing and I just think it's it's a very clever and a needed solution. So I'm glad you're doing it and and I and I appreciate you coming on and and and sharing. John Belizaire: Thank you. Thanks Seth I really enjoyed the time great questions and thank you so much for the opportunity. Support Coolperx®'s podcast by subscribing and reviewing!
