Cet épisode démarre sur la condamnation de MyBetterSelf. Métaphoriquement, du moins : j'ai demandé à Albert, docteur en neurosciences et psychologue clinicien, de m'expliquer pourquoi il était si critique de la volonté de devenir “la meilleure version de soi-même”. On échange, on débat, on s'oppose des arguments; d'un côté, il y a Albert, le docteur zen et spontané; de l'autre moi-même, workaholic assumée et perfectionniste en rémission. Dans cet épisode, on aborde les sujets du progrès, de la réussite, les mythes sur le fonctionnement du cerveau, l'injonction à la performance ou encore la dangereuse individualisation de nos sociétés. J'espère que ce podcast sera pour vous aussi une réelle source de réflexion !

Welcome back to another powerful episode of Warriors Unmasked. If you're seeking an inspiring figure in mental health and empowerment, meet Craig Ball, an Australian mentor with a rich history of transforming lives. With over two decades of experience, Craig's unique approach combines traditional and holistic techniques to help individuals realize their utmost potential. His belief? Every individual has the inherent ability to bolster their mental health and create their life's narrative. Craig isn't just an advocate; he's a testament to his methods. His experiences from being deployed to Afghanistan twice with the regular army put his theories to the test, and his triumphs over personal mental health challenges speak volumes. Alongside mentoring, he's a seasoned speaker, and his book, "Reclaim Your Power," offers a pragmatic look into his system. The "Warriors Unmasked" podcast recently hosted Craig, delving into his background, journey in the mental health sector, and his experiences as an Army reservist. He shared about his introduction to Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), which now forms a cornerstone of his work. The discussion underscored the importance of therapy as a testament to strength and also an insightful dialogue about the stigma around mental health in sports. When Craig faced a dire financial crisis, he chose to pen a book, both a personal testament and a guide to resilience. Written as a conversation, Craig's narrative demystifies mental health complexities. He stresses the importance of remaining open to change and understanding cognitive distortions like overgeneralization, where one's self-worth is wrongly tied to success or failure. Craig's central message: true resilience isn't just recovery, but thriving through adversity. He encourages recognizing emotions, leading to healing and empowerment.

I quote John McLaughlin “I find Indian music very funky. I mean it's very soulful, with their own kind of blues. But it's the only other school on the planet that develops improvisation to the high degree that you find in jazz music. So we have a lot of common ground.” Pushkar Lele and Kuldeep Barve joins us on Audiogyan and we will be talking about “Improvisation in music”. It's going to be a bi-lingual conversation in English and Marathi. Pushkar is a renowned Hindustani classical vocalist and Founder-Director of ‘Gandhara School of Music'. More about his Gurus, rich repertoire and enriching journey of learning music in the show notes. Kuldeep is a classical guitarist. His practice is influenced by jazz and Indian classical music. He is a co-founder and a core member of the Pune Guitar Society. Welcome Pushkar & Kuldeep! It's an honor to have you on Audiogyan. Thanks for giving your time. As I started of with John McLaughlin's quote, I wanted to document some of your thoughts on “Improvisation” - when it comes to Hindustani Classical and Western Classical music with a lot of Jazz which I believe has a lot of improvisation. Just as a small plug, you can also listen to “Jazz in India” where I interviewed Denzil Smith in episode 133. Questions What according to you is improvisation in the broadest sense? What does it mean to improvise in a concert? When is it required? How spontaneous it is Do you see a similar pattern in a Western Classical performances? Or perhaps Jazz? Can we confidently say that each performance by Loius Amstrong was different even for the same set of tracks? Do you need to be qualified to improvise? If yes, when are you allowed to improvise in Guru Shishya Parampara? Do we have a lineage kind of a thing in Western music as well - which deals with improvisations? Especially in genres like Jazz, Blues or country? What is the difference between improvising, exploring or presenting with a different perspective? When do we call something is improvised? After how much deviation from originally planned is called improvisation? When does one improvise? When they do the same thing over and over again or when they see some room for exploration? What's a more common pattern? What are the extents of improvisation? Whats at stake when an artist is improvising? Can improvisations land in a loop of improvisations? How do you come back to the sthayi bhava? Does a well trained audience appreciate improvisations? When and how do improvisations become part of the main setup? As in, no longer be called as improvisations?

Summary Cloud data warehouses and the introduction of the ELT paradigm has led to the creation of multiple options for flexible data integration, with a roughly equal distribution of commercial and open source options. The challenge is that most of those options are complex to operate and exist in their own silo. The dlt project was created to eliminate overhead and bring data integration into your full control as a library component of your overall data system. In this episode Adrian Brudaru explains how it works, the benefits that it provides over other data integration solutions, and how you can start building pipelines today.

Learn more about Datafold by visiting dataengineeringpodcast.com/datafold (https://www.dataengineeringpodcast.com/datafold) Your host is Tobias Macey and today I'm interviewing Adrian Brudaru about dlt, an open source python library for data loading Interview Introduction How did you get involved in the area of data management? Can you describe what dlt is and the story behind it? What is the problem you want to solve with dlt? Who is the target audience? The obvious comparison is with systems like Singer/Meltano/Airbyte in the open source space, or Fivetran/Matillion/etc. in the commercial space. What are the complexities or limitations of those tools that leave an opening for dlt? Can you describe how dlt is implemented? What are the benefits of building it in Python? How have the design and goals of the project changed since you first started working on it? How does that language choice influence the performance and scaling characteristics? What problems do users solve with dlt? What are the interfaces available for extending/customizing/integrating with dlt? Can you talk through the process of adding a new source/destination? What is the workflow for someone building a pipeline with dlt? How does the experience scale when supporting multiple connections? Given the limited scope of extract and load, and the composable design of dlt it seems like a purpose built companion to dbt (down to the naming). What are the benefits of using those tools in combination? What are the most interesting, innovative, or unexpected ways that you have seen dlt used? What are the most interesting, unexpected, or challenging lessons that you have learned while working on dlt? When is dlt the wrong choice? What do you have planned for the future of dlt?

Costas researched New Product Design Consultancies and tech companies in Silicon Valley and was a visiting professor at Said Business School (University of Oxford) Costas is also an author and his book, Purposeful Curiosity is the subject of this podcast. Costas now lives in West London with his wife and daughter. Podcast episode Summary: In this episode Costas shares his Curiosity Journey and the work he undertook to understand what it takes to employ Curiosity in a meaningful fashion. We discuss what it takes to be purposeful, the distractions we must refuse, and the permission needed to nurture the “Itch” within us all to follow our passions and execute our dreams. As Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think again shares, Costas's book “Nails the difference between idle curiosity and a productive drive to discover”. Points made throughout the Episode: o What more can you say about you the person? Costas shares that since we was a child he was a very curious person. He took things apart and his friend was his screw driver. He is very grateful that his parents encouraged this fascination with how things worked, with his curiosity as a child. This same curiosity has taken him to different parts of the world to study and work and by way of it he has met incredibly interesting people. o When you show interest in what others do it leads you to some very interesting answers. o Costas wanted to become an Architect. Whilst his parents at that time discouraged that path it is not surprising to Costas that his PhD and research focuses on Creative & Innovative organisations, some of whom were design studios and others of whom where Architectural firms. There is something we are passionate about, sometimes we are steered away from pursuing these passions but if you like something so much it will always come back. o Costas encourages people to do something about which you are passionate and good. We can follow many topics and we need to understand these topics. Costas became curious about Curiosity and he wanted to nurture that passion and understand what it takes to pursue curiosity purposefully. o Because Costas knows Creativity, Innovation and Curiosity are closely linked or brothers he found researching Curiosity to be within his gift. o He makes the point that if he wanted to research Rockets he would find it very difficult because he wasn't very good at physics or related disciplines and most probably he would not be interested in any case. o We have to care about something, we have to be passionate and we have to understand the subject to pursue purposeful curiosity. o Notwithstanding the fact that Costas has studied Innovation and Creativity when he first mentioned his interest in studying Curiosity everyone he spoke with thought he was crazy. o The external voices were really projecting their fears onto Costas about the potential pitfalls and opportunity cost of his project. When we embark on something new, and Curiosity is a new field for Costas, people are going to project their fears. o People who surround us normally care for us. They want to protect us from failing and still if we are passionate about something we have to learn to silence these external voices to follow our path. o Costas is not encouraging blind faith or reckless pursuits he is taking about projects where you prepare and surround yourself with professionals or people who know something about what you are trying to achieve. o To illustrate his point Costas tells us about his new interest in Kite Surfing and how he approached becoming skilful when initially it seemed daunting. In the same way as before external voices tried to dissuade him. He was told of all of the dangers associated with Kite surfing and as before he noticed people were simply projecting their fears. o Costas chose a good instructor, he went online to read up as much as he could about safety, essentially saying he did not go to his first lesson unprepared. o Being curious about something means you go to your first meeting being prepared. o Costas's motivation to write his book was to research Curiosity and it became his purpose. o Purposeful Curiosity is about translating our curiosity into something. We can be curious about stuff, satiate our curiosity somewhat and move to the next thing. Doing this means nothing happens, no processes get better or the community doesn't benefit etc. It is a bit of a selfish act. o Costas noticed he was doing this, his colleagues and others were too. o He was curious to understand if there were people who followed their curiosity and executed change, translating their curiosity into a service, a product or a start-up o For his research Costas interviewed 60 people from different walks of life, different geographical locations from Japan to California. o What Costas noticed was that the people he studied stayed with their curiosity longer. Too often when we are curious and something doesn't work out we drop it. What Costas found was the opposite with those who were Curious and executed. If something did not work out they became even more curious. o Costas describes how when he began his research and project he got so curious his world disappeared and it became like a movement to him. o Costas was curious to know how we can help people be more curious, to execute their curiosity and to improve life, communities, solve problems and provide solutions to life questions. o It was important for Costas to address the subject of fear in his book Purposeful Curiosity. He admits himself that when he starts something new he feels fear. He is not fearless. Instead however he uses his curiosity to overcome his fears. o When he started Kite Surfing in the Summer of 22, he saw Kite Surfers jumping 5 or 6 metres and he was afraid. By being curious he tried to figure out what could go wrong. He developed a list of mitigating solutions. He used his curiosity and questions about his fear to help him move closer to his goals. Fear doesn't necessarily go away but you can make it become second nature to you. o Costas uses his failure to learn, to ask for feedback and to course correct. o Costas wrote this book during Covid. It was bemusing to Costas that he chose to do something so creative in isolation because he is a person who enjoys company. o Costas explains making fear second nature by saying that the more we do something the more it becomes like skin. We get used to it. He uses the example of writhing his own book to explain this phenomenon. o Writing a book is a big endeavour. Writing 300 pages in a year and a half takes commitment, it takes time and over time writing & pursuing this project of writing a book about Purposeful Curiosity became second nature to him. o Costas admits that writing is not something that comes naturally to him, in fact it makes him a bit uncomfortable, because for Costas it is about disseminating his thoughts onto paper for others to read. o You have to be comfortable with discomfort. o When Costas started writing he was very uncomfortable, it was taking him more time than he thought it should, he was stressed and he was beset with his inner critic asking “will he get it?” but curiously the more Costas wrote, the more time he took he started to get comfortable with his discomfort to the point that he began to enjoy it. o Costas never felt paralysed by his fear, he felt energised. He studiously worked to bring down his fear by doing more research, reading books that were close to the kind of book he wanted to write, talking to people etc. o To execute Curiosity you have to first give yourself permission to go on the Journey. Do not wait for others to give you the green light. o Curiosity leads us to be relevant. o All of us have to be lifelong learners. o Costas encourages us to figure out “our itch” to take ownership for our particular Curiosity Project. If you have a passion, a curiosity, open a folder, take notes, do your research, have boundaries, don't be seduced by the internet, there are a lot of smart resources like Udemy etc give yourself permission become a bit of an expert. o Costas also notes that when you are starting out, following your itch and learning about your passion or topic you need to find a Tribe. o Ask “who is your tribe” go to meetings, participate & talk to discover. o Don't be afraid. The important thing is to continue learning, to continue asking questions to surround yourself with a Tribe, people who are passionate, different, open and open to being surprised and can add meaning to your project. o Costas expands on his acronym Curiosity which neatly describes the qualities of a good team and in this case Tribe. o Assembling a dream Tribe/Team is about hiring curious people. People who are Collaborative, Unabashedly passionate about the subject, Resilient, Iconoclastic, Open to outside interests, Urgent and Surprise seeking. o What Costas admires in his field and in his career or on his teams are the people who bring you questions. They are not waiting for him to solve for everything. o Costas mentions the wise adage “never meet your heroes or heroines” He did not meet this problem when he was interviewing his 60 subjects or innovators for his research. He was surprised by their willingness to share things. People confided in him which for Costas meant that there was trust. Costas was struck by their degree of interest in his subject, their willingness to ask him questions and to take notes. There was a real dialogue with naturally humble subjects. o Curiosity means you have to be able to actively listen. If your tribe tells you, you are not ready you have to be prepared to listen. o Curious people can listen, they are present and they are humble. o No matter his interviewees were very successful, often monetarily they were also humble. There is always something further to learn. There is always another itch they want to scratch and they know this. o Costas reminds us that it is important to listen and to digest the information we are getting. We have to be patient & willing to take our time if we want to reach our goals. o We need to be willing to do the hard work. We live in an era where there is instant gratification, from food, to education to romance. Everything is on our Smart Phone and curiously then people complain. The book is not a pill, serving instant gratification & guaranteeing results. It is a guide that invites the reader to put in the hard work, to embrace discomfort and to learn. This work requires commitment, time, enthusiasm and effort. o One of the nuggets Costas shares in his nine essential and practical lessons is the idea of “disciplined serendipity” which he explains using his own example of script writing. o When he started his pursuit of script writing he went through the exact process he illuminates in his book. He met fear, his imposter syndrome and all the many ways his mind told him he should not pursue this path-he knew nobody in this field- he did not have a ready-made tribe, he knew he was not professionally trained etc.. Still he prevailed. He put the lessons from his own book to work. o Costas put all of his concerns to one side and he started. He bought a notebook and he started to write. He soon got into “flow” a state of immersion where his world fell away. In flow you forget about time and place. It happened to him when he was researching and again when he started to write. o Disciplined Serendipity means we can move from one thing to something else and by applying the nine lessons from his book we can become better. o Costas has now found his tribe, he has identified an award winning script writer at the University where he works and he is getting the support he requires. In a way Costas developed his own curriculum & applied the lessons from his own book to become better at script writing. o Curiously for Costas script writing has helped him in his teaching. In his classes he is helping budding entrepreneurs start their own businesses. An important feature of start-ups is Storytelling. He uses the art of storytelling from script writing in his lectures to help his students tell better and more compelling stories. o Nothing is wasted. The time and effort Costas has spent learning how to become a better script writer has translated in him using this learning in his lectures. Many people refuse to start because they fear wasting time, using resources etc. Nothing is wasted you simply have to think about repurposing your efforts, combining your skills and knowledge. There is always something to be gained from curiosity projects o In response to the question “who did you become by writing this book” Costas replied “his younger self” the 10 year old boy living in Athens with his friend the screwdriver. o The element of surprise that accompanies us on Curiosity Journeys is very fulfilling, especially as we live in an era where we do not know how stuff works. o Whilst I promised Costas that I would use his book to discover my next personal & professional itch he told me that he believes I already have it, coaching and doing this podcast. He is partially correct and I know there is more. His book is worth a reread. Resources shared across this podcast & ways to get in touch 1.

Golf is undeniably one of the most challenging sports in the world from a logistical and operational standpoint. Especially when it comes to connecting the hundreds or thousands of smart devices dotted around them during major tournaments.Courses are huge areas, several kilometers square. They have dozens of acres of maintained grass, geographical challenges, roads, trees, and often other services on or near them that need to be skirted around or crossed. They are open to the elements. In short, providing connectivity is a huge challenge. That's the challenge for our guest this week, Chief Technology Officer for the European Tour Group and Ryder Cup Europe, Michael Cole. We'll be talking about creating 21st-century connected ecosystems in the most extreme environments, as well as the future of golf as a 'smart' sport.This is Technology Now, a weekly show from Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Guest Coach Komal Darira (Women for World) will share how she built mostly female guide teams in Delhi, a city where being a tour guide is still not considered an ideal career for a woman.

“Waste not, want not.” can be explained as “if you are not wasteful with the resources you have now, then at a later date you will have those resources to use as you want and need. By not wasting, you will not be needy later.” And today to discuss all about waste ecosystem and the sector at large, we have Rahul Nainani with us on Audiogyan. Rahul has a passion for sustainable policies that create value. With one eye on the bottom line and the other on tangible social impact, Rahul, along with his co-founder Gurashish Singh Sahni founded ReCircle in 2016, as an innovative, multifaceted solution to India's burgeoning waste management woes. ReCircle has instituted flagship initiatives such as, ClimaOne, Plastic EPR Service, Plastic-Neutral programs and ground-level community collection drives. We'll talking about this and more. Questions How do we define waste? What all broad categories of waste do we generate? Can you share some stats about waste generated in India every day? Perhaps about the waste ecosystem and the sector at large? How does the entire setup work? Which all entities are involved in handling waste? From collection at source to finally dumped or put for recycling? How do we do in comparison to other developing countries like us? How critical has been the impact of Swatch Bharat and other initiatives to entrepreneurs like you or the entire ecosystem? Tell us a little bit about ReCircle — how did you come to start it and why? Tell us about your team, initiatives, programs and everything. Right from Safai Saathis to governing bodies, how do you engage with them? What is ClimaOne? Tell us about other flagship initiatives under ReCircle? How has technology changed things for everyone in this ecosystem? How and where technology is applied? Waste management doesn't sound very sexy. How do you attract talent and run the company? What is the future of Waste? Can we expect waste in Meta-verse? Can we expect India to be as clean as Singapore?

Right now, we need a lot more energy. In 2023, on average we use 60 kilowatt hours of electrical energy, each, per day. That's enough to boil approximately 600 litres of water. Which is a lot, especially when you consider that several billion of us are using a lot less than that. Demand is growing, too, by 3-5% globally every year. The IT industry is a major contributor to this, using around 6% of the world's electricity. So how can we make more, and use less? That's the topic of a two-part special of our sister podcast, Technology Untangled. This week, we're taking a look at some of the key findings from these special investigations in something of a highlights reel.We'd love to hear your one minute review of books which have changed your year!

Today, I am blessed to have here with me, Bjorn Ekeberg. He is a multifaceted scholar hailing from Oslo, Norway. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Victoria, Canada, and is also a seasoned Philosopher of Science. His extensive knowledge base and wide-ranging interests make him an intellectual powerhouse. Bjørn serves as the Chief Commercial Officer at Recharge Health. This organization is known for promoting and selling FlexBeam, a revolutionary wearable infrared therapy device designed to significantly improve musculoskeletal issues, enhance strength performance, expedite recovery, and promote better sleep. He is the author of Metaphysical Experiments: Physics and the Invention of the Universe (Volume 49) (Posthumanities) and teaches the public the science and metaphysics behind our understanding of the universe. He also created high-end scripted drama and co-wrote the award-winning series VALKYRIEN, which NRK and Channel 4 picked up. The series was so successful that it landed on both the New York Times and BBC's Top 10 list in 2017 and is currently being remade in the UK as "Temple" for Sky. In this episode, Bjorn discusses the importance of utilizing light to improve Mitochondrial Health. Bjorn reveals how red and near-infrared wavelengths can stimulate the body's natural process of healing. Bjorn dives into the mechanisms and benefits of red and near-infrared light. Tune in as we chat about Light for Mitochondrial Health, finding the sweet spot for Red Light Therapy, and an opportunity for people to take advantage of Infrared Therapy to live a better life.

[00:17] Using Light to Improve Mitochondrial Health: A Biohacking Paradigm Shift Light, particularly infrared and red light, can significantly impact our biochemistry by enhancing mitochondrial health. It's an area worthy of more widespread understanding and use. The absence of health-boosting technologies like light therapy in common establishments reveals a gap in our healthcare system, highlighting the need for broader dissemination and commercial application of such health-promoting interventions. Understanding the interplay between diet, particularly keto, and biohacking strategies like light therapy can lead to more effective ways to improve health. Our perception of the sun as merely an object in the sky belies its critical role in regulating our biochemistry and overall health. Its radiant energy, especially in the infrared spectrum, profoundly influences our well-being. Infrared light, constituting over 50% of the sun's energy spectrum reaching us, has unique properties that allow it to penetrate the skin and influence deeper tissues. This highlights the potential of targeted infrared therapy to improve health at a cellular level. [11:56] How effective is red light therapy? Hormesis, a pivotal concept to practices like the keto diet, fasting, cold exposure, and red light therapy, underscores that more is not always better. Optimal benefits lie in striking the right balance. Individuals may react differently to red light therapy, dependent on their current mitochondrial health status. It's essential to consider personal health background while designing a red light therapy regimen. The 'Goldilocks zone' for red light therapy isn't necessarily about longer exposure but the suitable duration leading to positive effects. Self-observation is crucial in optimizing the use of red light therapy. Noticing and understanding the body's response to therapy can guide frequency and intensity adjustments. Red light therapy can be effective for acute conditions, such as muscle contusions, by applying it right after the injury and before bed to stimulate recovery during sleep. Regular application over a period is usually beneficial. [26:21] Red Light Therapy: What Is It? A Complete Guide for Beginners Photobiomodulation, or red light therapy, isn't just beneficial for muscle repair or athletic recovery but has a profound impact on gut health due to the high concentration of light receptors in the stomach. Photobiomodulation on an empty stomach can stimulate the gut microbiome and improve overall digestive health. Implementing red light therapy into daily routines, such as morning meditation, can help reset the circadian rhythm and foster mindfulness. Red light therapy can be effective for women experiencing menstrual cramps and reproductive health issues like endometriosis. Understanding and harnessing the concentration of mitochondria in different body organs can lead to optimized benefits from photobiomodulation, promoting overall health improvement. [28:13] Is the sun an important healthcare resource or a global threat? The sun, often villainized due to skin cancer risks, plays a crucial role in our health and well-being, providing the body with an all-natural healing source. Although political motives exist to block sunlight to solve global warming, it's important to consider the implications of altering our natural light environment. The sun provides a full spectrum of light which contributes to the concept of photobiomodulation, which suggests that all light impacts our body differently. Near-infrared light, which the sun provides, is closely linked with mitochondrial function, demonstrating its critical role in human health. Acknowledging and discussing the significant influence of our 'light environment' on our overall health and well-being is essential. [39:59] Safety, Contraindications, and Best Practices for Photobiomodulation Photobiomodulation is generally a safe technology, studied extensively for safety, making it suitable for many users. People with recent tattoos, particularly dark ink, should be cautious about using photobiomodulation due to potential skin sensitivity. Cancer patients and pregnant women are typically advised not to use such technology, not due to proven harm, but because ethical restrictions prevent comprehensive studies in these groups. Users should avoid looking directly into the device for an extended period because infrared light, being invisible, can harm the eyes without triggering the blinking reflex. While the FlexBeam can be used on the face for a warm glow and potential skin benefits, they are primarily designed as powerful recovery tools, not beauty devices. [43:30] The future success of Photobiomodulation There's a growing paradigm shift in health approaches leading to more acceptance of photobiomodulation, though the term itself might not be widely known. The market could become flooded with cheap, ineffective products as the therapy becomes more mainstream, creating the risk of photobiomodulation being dismissed as a hyped trend. The advent of red light therapy as a cosmetic application, particularly facial masks, could further dilute the perception of the technology, potentially associating it with superficial or low-quality products. The future success of photobiomodulation may depend on how effectively its practitioners can differentiate quality, effective treatment devices from less beneficial products. AND MUCH MORE!

We had a sense of where it would line up. We also knew how much we needed for the company, for us to be comfortable." - Randy Woods "If you're a founder, and it's your firm, and you bring people in, you're responsible for many mortgages once you get up to a big payroll. So you have a responsibility there to them that goes beyond just making sure the banks are happy." - Randy Woods "Money for most founders, like most entrepreneurs, I think is really a way of counting score as much as the goal in itself." - Randy Woods "Having somebody work through some of the realities of what life after the check clears is like would have been helpful." - Randy Woods Connect with Randy!

One of Andrew's favorite people in both dentistry and life, Dr. Joy Void-Holmes, joins the podcast today as a co-host for a fascinating interview with Dr. Sam Shamardi. The founder of Dental Innovations LLC, a company aimed at providing novel solutions to unaddressed issues within dentistry, Dr. Shamardi also lectures nationally and internationally on topics within periodontics and hearing loss in dentistry. He is also an author, is recognized as a dental entrepreneur for his revolutionary EarAid product, and possesses an overwhelming desire to help others which shines through brilliantly during the conversation here today. Dr. Shamardi begins by sharing a glimpse into his life story, and then proceeds to offer a masterclass on the subject of noise induced hearing loss, particularly in the world of dentistry. Along the way, he touches upon what's contributing to it, the ADA's actions regarding it, addressing it through dental professional education, its impact upon systemic health. He also delves into the frequency and decibels to look for in equipment, the difference between passive and active hearing protection, and how his device compares with other products. Dubbed ‘dentistry's deafening silence', noise induced hearing loss is something that people do not even realize is happening to them, and yet can have a catastrophic impact upon their lives. Listen in today as Dr. Sam Shamardi shines a spotlight on this little publicized, and completely preventable, threat to our overall health, providing you with everything you need to know to protect yourself from it. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS: Interview starts: 9:13 Dr. Shamardi's life story The lack of attention to noise induced hearing loss in dentistry How to know when you are losing your hearing What's contributing to hearing loss in dentistry Why it has not been addressed The ADA's response to it Addressing hearing and hearing loss in schools Testing dental instrument sound levels PPE for hearing Systemic health effects What frequency levels and decibels to look for in equipment The difference between passive and active hearing protection How Dr. Shamardi's device compares with other products Dr. Shamardi's The Financial Survival Guide for Dentists QUOTES: “It's not something that you notice. It's not something that you even know is happening to you.” “As dental professionals we are literally in the eye of the storm.” “Once you've reached the stage where you, yourself, actually notice that you feel like you're not hearing things as well anymore, by that point you've actually entered what's called ‘Stage 3' of hearing loss.” “The number you want to keep in mind is 85 decibels.” “For us as dental professionals, it's the combination of, we already are in that environment where the equipment that we use is well above the limit of what causes hearing damage. And then, the second part is we are in that environment for a very long period of time.” “They don't realize that…it's something that's completely preventable.” “It should start with the schools, right?” “The actual noise is adding to our stress.” “Noise is now playing a factor, not just in what it's doing to our ears, but it's also playing a direct factor in what is also contributing to our overall…health.” “Moderate or severe noise induced hearing loss were also associated with increased cardiovascular death.” “The chronic effects of being exposed to these noises carry with you even after retirement.” “It's the 85 or above that we have to worry about.” “That circuitry is actually able to instantaneously identify, isolate, and then lower the sound of anything that is in the decibel or frequency range which will actually cause the hearing damage.” “The goal at the end of the day: try and help people out, educate everybody on things that are important and, you know, things that we should frankly know more about but don't.” LINKS: A Tale of Two Hygienists homepage - https://ataleoftwohygienists.com/ AToTH on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/aTaleOfTwoHygienists/ AToTH on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/ataleoftwohygienists AToTH on LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/company/atoth/?originalSubdomain=ca PDT homepage Forward Science EarAID Financial Survival Guide for Dentists
