Nathan and Eppy join Jim in an unexpected trip across the border in S4E18 South by Southeast. Due to a mistaken postal address, Jim is taken for a CIA operative and whisked away for a high-stakes meeting with a rich socialite, who he quickly discovers is in trouble herself. Despite a serious class divide, we watch romance blossom while Jim does his best to keep her from danger. This fun character study of an episode uses the North by Northwest homage framing to get things going, so if seeing Jim get out of his element is something you enjoy, this is one to check out for sure!

The routes for the 2022 Tour de France and Tour de France Femmes were revealed in Paris so now the riders know what awaits them next July. The 109th edition of the men's Tour will start on Friday, July 1 with a time trial in Copenhagen, followed by two stages in Denmark before a transfer back to France where the cobbles of the Hell of the North await. The serious climbing starts with La Super Planche des Belles Filles before Alpe d'Huez returns for the first time since 2018. The Tour will visit Hautacam in the Pyrenees before a time trial at Rocamadour. The first edition of the Tour de France Femmes will kick off with a stage in Paris on the same day the men's Tour reaches the Champs-Élysées. Over the course of eight stages, the women will tackle gravel and climbs before the yellow jersey is decided on La Super Planche des Belles Filles. Richard Moore, Lionel Birnie and Daniel Friebe dissect the routes, assess some of the culinary highlights and ask whether the sprinters will be forced to look elsewhere for opportunities.

We take a first glimpse at the different stages of next year's Tour de France which were announced yesterday in Paris and analyze the difficulties and challenges of the route. The Tour 2022 starts in Copenhagen and stays in Denmark for the first 3 stages, before traveling to the North of France. The first week will be mainly flat but very stressful, particularly with the return of the cobblestones on stage 5. On stage 7 we will have the first real test for the big favorites with the finish on La Planche des Belles Filles. Then it's towards the Alps with the return of the famous climb of Alpe d'Huez and from there to the Pyrenees featuring the extremely hard climb of Hautacam. The last big test will be the 40km long individual time trial on the second last day before the peloton finally enters into Paris. In all, a very well balanced yet quite hard course which will be won undoubtedly by the strongest cyclist supporter by a very solid team.

Have you ever had a point in your life where you felt completely lost? That you are in a position where you don't know exactly where you are, but know where you want to go? Of course you have! In global navigation, we can use what is called “dead reckoning“ to find our approximate position. This is when you are in the air, over an ocean, or in a vast body of land that has little to no reference points and you have to rely on a formula of time, speed, distance, and drift. We must also make sure we are using the right “North“, whether it be true, grid, or magnetic. If we apply the wrong one, we can miss our mark or destination by miles. In life, we have to identify what our own version of “north“ is and trust our formula of values, determination, character traits, vision, and healthy relationships to guide us through the unknown and give us clarity on where we stand on our journey between where we are and where we want to go. To many, navigation can be a hard and challenging task, but when done correctly, it can provide you with efficient pathways, energy conservation, time efficiency, and satisfaction. Why would we not want to do the same in life?

Hi everybody and welcome to Episode 174, Season 3 of Red Wings Rant: Where tirades and impassioned pleas about your Detroit Red Wings, finally, have a home. Today we preview the Detroit Red Wings 2021-22 home opener against the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Saturday matchup with the Vancouver Canucks. The Detroit Red Wings have also solidified their forward lines, defensive pairs, and power plays and we'll take a quick look to see where Lucas Raymond, Moritz Seider, and the rest of the Red Wings Roster will be lining up. The Tampa Bay Lightning will be making their way to Detroit and Little Caesars Arena for their second game of the season. They are currently 0-1-0 after losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-2. With the Penguins currently playing with stars Sydney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, the final score was especially surprising, for the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup Champions, Lightning. The Lightning may be looking to redeem themselves after being embarrassed at home during their banner raising, but we'll also ask the question if the Lightning could be running out of gas. The Red Wings' second game of the season, against the Vancouver Canucks, will feature Elias Pettersson, Quinn Hughes, and Thatcher Demko. The Canucks struggled last season, finishing 7th place in the North with a .446 points percentage (for comparison sake, the Red Wings had .429 points percentage). The Canucks will be playing their second game in two nights and their 3rd in 4 nights. With Pettersson and Hughes having only played 2 preseason games, will the loaded front of the schedule affect their play, and can the Wings take advantage? Episode sponsored by Draft Kings.

This week we're joined Anuk Arudpragasm to discuss A Passage North, his Booker-shortlisted story of age and youth, loss and survival in Sri Lanka. Buy A Passage North here: https://shakespeareandcompany.com/I/9781783786947/a-passage-north Browse our online store here: https://shakespeareandcompany.com/15/online-store/16/bookstore Become a Friend of S&Co here: https:/.friendsofshakespeareandcompany.com * It begins with a message: a telephone call informing Krishan that his grandmother”s former care-giver, Rani, has died in unexpected circumstances, at the bottom of a well in her village in the north, her neck broken by the fall. The news arrives on the heels of an email from Anjum, an activist he fell in love with four years earlier while living in Delhi, bringing with it the stirring of distant memories and desires. As Krishan makes the long journey by train from Colombo into the war-torn Northern Province for the funeral, so begins a passage into the soul of an island devastated by violence. Written with precision and grace, A Passage North is a poignant memorial for the missing and the dead, and a luminous meditation on time, consciousness, and the lasting imprint of the connections we make with others. * Anuk Arudpragasam was born in Colombo and currently lives between Sri Lanka and India. His debut novel, The Story of a Brief Marriage, won the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature, and was shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize as well as the Internationaler Literaturpreis. He received a doctorate in philosophy from Columbia University in 2019. Adam Biles is Literary Director at Shakespeare and Company.

In a predominantly Black Chicago neighborhood, how one affordable housing program is addressing inequality by enabling homeownership. Read more:Over the years, rows of two-story stone houses and small buildings have fallen into disrepair in the Chicago neighborhood of North Lawndale. The neighborhood was made famous in 1966, when the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. — hoping to turn the focus of the civil rights movement on housing inequalities in the North — moved his wife and four children into a dilapidated apartment there. Decades later, much has stayed the same in North Lawndale, where crime and poverty rates remain high. Last year, more than 2,000 empty lots dotted the neighborhood. But a group of local developers and activists are pushing to change things. They're planning to build 1,000 standalone affordable homes for people who already live in the neighborhood as renters, so they can buy homes and start building equity and generational wealth through homeownership.The approach aims to end poverty by focusing not on rental subsidies, but on finance classes and helping people buy their own homes. But according to reporter Kyle Swenson, it's an approach that will need federal government buy-in to really succeed.
Jeff Slakey went to Belfair to talk with Jeromy Hicks who is part of the group "Citizens for North Mason Schools". These folks have been working hard to bring forth another levy for the North Mason School District. This is the third try for a levy in the North Mason School District in the past few years but the group this time thinks they've worked a plan that everyone can agree upon.

Abstract Gene drives are rapidly emerging as a potential tool for controlling populations of disease vectors, invasive species and agricultural pests. The molecular research to create new and improved gene drives based on the CRISPR technology has progressed rapidly. While this research has been encouraging from the perspective of developing these tools, there remain large gaps in our understanding of how natural populations would respond to the release of gene drives. Dr. Dhole will discuss some of the ecological processes that will play an important role and that need more research in natural pest populations.

For the past few years at NC State his focus has been on understanding how synthetic gene drives might behave if introduced into natural populations. While gene drives, which are highly invasive genetic constructs, may provide a solution for rapid and species-specific management of disease vectors and agricultural pests, a major concern is the potential of their unchecked spread to non-target populations. Through his work, Sumit tries to understand what factors and design features may allow synthetic gene drives to spread in safe, contained manners.

‘Devil-Land' – that was how foreign observers viewed England in the 17th century: a ‘failed state' torn apart by seditious rebellion, religious extremism and royal collapse. The historian Clare Jackson recounts this stormy and radical era through the eyes of outsiders across the Channel. But she tells Andrew Marr that the country's turbulence also bred great creativity and curiosity about the wider world. The Anglo-French journalist Benedicte Paviot is the UK correspondent of France 24. She explores how the French view Britain today. From Brexit to the government's pursuit of ‘Global Britain' and the new Australia/UK/US defence pact, contemporary French neighbours often look on with hostility and bemusement. Fintan O'Toole is an Irish journalist and polemicist who has spent much of his career commenting on Britain from the other side of the water. But in his latest book, We Don't Know Ourselves, he turns his attention to Ireland since his birth in 1958. It's another story of great turbulence and rebellion, from underdevelopment, domination by the Church and a sectarian civil war in the North, to struggles for intellectual, civil and sexual freedoms.

Relationships are a process not an outcome. Think about it, what would happen if it was an outcome? When would you know you've accomplished your goal? At what point is it time for the next? Imagine I told you, you maxed out on what you can get in this marriage? Thank goodness it's not an outcome! With that being the case, focus on the intention, not the outcome. In this couple-therapist episode, we get a really interesting perspective on what it's like to be married as a veteran. There's trauma, there's emotion and a whole lot of strength. But what does it actually take? There's a lot of understanding, conversation and connecting with who you truly are. Your spouse is not here to define for what it means to be a "man" or a "lady", that's yours to discover. Just remember no judgement!

Every year, hundreds of bird species migrate between North and South America. Some species likely evolved from ancestors that moved north in search of new breeding habitats: the “southern home” hypothesis. But others may have extended their winter ranges south: the “northern home” hypothesis. Many birds have likely gained and lost the ability to migrate multiple times over the course of evolution. And it's still happening today. Learn more at BirdNote.org.
If you are like many moms, you probably have a story you tell yourself about what a “good mom” does. And trying to live up to that story probably leaves you feeling unfulfilled and unproductive at the end of most days, asking yourself, “How can I be so busy and have so little to show for it?” Perhaps you need to live more by doing less and find the joy of missing out! Tonya Dalton, author and productivity expert, cuts to the chase on these issues in her book The Joy of Missing Out and in her conversation with Marti and Erin, offering practical tips on how to find your purpose (your North star!), clarify your priorities and simplify your life. Here key take-aways include Erin's favorite, “Every time you say yes, you are saying no to something else,” and Marti's mantra, “To be truly productive, we need to give our brains a little space to play and explore.” Listen to this lively conversation and then reflect on what you can choose to miss out on so you can savor those things that are truly important to you. You will benefit and so will your children. WHAT JOY MIGHT YOU FIND IN MISSING OUT? Thinking about the past couple of weeks, what things did you do that led you to ask, “Why did I say yes to this? How is this consistent with my values and purpose?” When you said yes to those activities, what were you saying no to? (For example, fun time with your children, maintaining your own health, getting enough sleep, taking steps toward an important goal.) What do you resolve to do differently in the next couple of weeks? WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHY IT'S IMPORTANT TO MISS OUT? ❉ WHY "ME TIME" MATTERS: HOW YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN BENEFIT WHEN YOU TAKE TIME TO CARE FOR YOURSELF. As a mom, you may feel guilty when you take time for yourself – enjoy some “ME Time”. You may worry that you're neglecting your children's needs if you go out with friends, have a date night with your partner, take time to go to a class, take a nap, exercise or even just relax in a hot bath. But, for many reasons, taking time for yourself can help you be a better mother and help your children be healthier, happier people, now and later. Tune in to learn why this time is so important (and why saying "No" means "Yes" to something else). ❉ The Joy of Missing Out. Check out Tonya Dalton's book and learn more about the joys of missing out.
Jen has been all over the internet lately telling the world that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is a dumpster fire of a bill. In this episode, she backs that up by comparing the levels of investment for different kinds of infrastructure and examining the society changing effects the bill would have if it were to become law.

Welcome to the 108th Episode of the Ministry of Dice – the UK based, bi-weekly best in Dice Masters podcast chat. We've got to accept that, with the wait for the mythical Q1 releases there's very little to actually talk about, so you better strap in for a very old school episode of the MoD, re-visiting the randomness of our early days LOL We start, as usual, by getting the latest ins & outs on what the lads have been up to with the 2-week review – what game they've been playing, who won the Dice Masters stream match this week, and what has Chris been posting on the YouTube channel. Then its on to a Community Focus. There's a quick reminder about Roll for the north 2 (link below) and then we announce the next MoD Dice Masters vs Cancer fundraising event. Head on over to the BritRollerSix.com blog for the details tomorrow. Then we have a classic Ministry of Dice “Ramble-y chat” about IPs we wouldn't want to see in Dice Masters. Andy brings his usual, controversial flair to his list, but you'll have to decide whether Chris was intentionally trolling you all or not
Probably the toughest hunt I have done in years. And certainly one of the most fun. This trip goes down as one of my favorites and this podcast may be the same.
