We had a nice long weekend with tasty food, hanging out with friends, and doing electronics! one thing we got around to finally was finishing a QT Py that is based on the ESP32-S2. Yeah this is many months old but we also wanted to wait till we could get the version of the chip with PSRAM built in. We're doing Arduino & CircuitPython tests now. Design is ready to go with a nice silkscreen :) The Great Search - uFL connector https://www.digikey.com/short/m55nzw3d For our QT Py board, we're starting with a mini 2.4 GHz antenna - but we know some folks will want better range than what this lil ceramic antenna can do.

This week's EYE ON NPI knows where it's been and where its goin'! We reckon you'll love the ST Teseo-VIC3DA and Automotive GNSS Dead-Reckoning Module and Eval Kit (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/s/stmicroelectronics/teseo-vic3da-automotive-gnss-dead-reckoning-module), a technology that improves on GPS/GNSS by adding an IMU and odometer to help determine location in places where GPS signal is unable to reach such as tunnels and canyons. We've covered GPS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System) modules before on EYE ON NPI - they're many-decades-old technology that uses a satellite constellation to calculate 3D location on Earth with ~10 meter precision. They're great for use with cars or trucks because GPS works anywhere on the planet, and when combined with digital maps can easily calculate instructions, arrival time and recommended routes. However, GPS has a few things that it can't do. Most important is it cannot work at all if there's no clear view of the sky. One needs to constantly be receiving GPS data from 3+ satellites in order to determine location. So, if you're in tunnel or in a city-made canyon (http://wikimapia.org/6909209/Canyon-of-Heroes), or if there's RF shielding or interference, you simply 'drop off' the planet. Super awkward! For those situations, some companies or technologies can take advantage of "WiFi Assisted GPS" (https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-642-13618-4_14) this is where a secondary base station, or WiFi signal names, can be used to help locate during low-visibility. This works particularly well in cities, of course, where there's a high density of AP names that don't change. But it's still pretty useless in a tunnel or outside a city center. There's also RTK, (https://blog.adafruit.com/2020/06/08/eye-on-npi-u-blox-c099-f9p-application-board-for-zed-f9p-gnss-rtk-module-eyeonnpi-adafruit-digikey-digikey-ublox/) which is awesome for increased precision and accuracy - but that requires a base station within a couple-hundred meters, and another transmission link on every device, so while it's used for some agricultural robotics, it's not always possible to implement (but it is worth investigating if you can control the environment where you're using GNSS.) So, finally we come to dead-reckoning techniques(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_reckoning). These work in an intuitive way: if you know where you last were and you count the number of steps and direction which you're going, then in theory you should be able to determine your exact location. Now, historically this technique has been used with boats and planes and hiking - in fact you probably learned it in scout camp. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dead_reckoning#/media/File:CYA_Coastal_Navigation_With_Dead_Reckoning_2.jpg) And, while in theory it should be a perfect way to determine location, the implementation makes a massive difference on how usable the end product is. A slight error in direction angle makes for more and more drift error in the final result - and as humans struggle to calculate direction, it's better than nothing but not necessarily trustworthy without having reference checkpoints on a map. For this module, ST has worked on how to make it easy as possible to implement dead reckoning into your robot, with all the fixin's. First up, you're getting multi-constellation support. So not only American GPS, but also Europe's Galileo, Russia's Glonass, Japan's QZSS, and China's BeiDou systems. So if you can't get data from one constellation, you can use another. Next up, there's an internal 6-DoF sensor that is used as a tilt-compensated compass that will determine direction precisely. (GPS modules do give 'heading' but its just based on the last few locations). Next you need to calculate 'steps' - that's done with an odometer input. That pin is connected to a simple rotation-count sensor and direction sensor that will let the chip know how many ticks have passed since the last known fix. You can also send the odometer data over NMEA commands, btw. Finally, the module can combine this in the TESEO firmware to give you a fast (30 Hz) updated location! Usually this calculation stuff is the hardest part of doing dead reckoning so its really cool to see this all in one ST makes a very snazzy EVB-VIC3DA dev kit in an aluminum box and everything, (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/stmicroelectronics/EVB-VIC3DA/15276423) with ports and power supplies and LEDs so you can immediately toss it into your robot without any soldering or board layout required. The ST Dead-Reckoning GNSS modules TESEO-VIC3D (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/stmicroelectronics/TESEO-VIC3DA/15276424), and EVB-VIC3DA eval boards (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/stmicroelectronics/EVB-VIC3DA/15276423) are in stock right now, for immediate shipment from Digi-Key! Order today and I reckon' you'll be adding this great locating hardware to your design tomorrow afternoon.

Special IRRS Pandemic QSL card Live, off-air, one-hour recording of the audio of Stephen K. Bannon's "War Room: Pandemic" podcast episode no. 46. The program was broadcast by IRRS Shortwave, the Italian Radio Relay Service of the NEXUS International Broadcasting Association in Milano, Italy, on 16 March 2020 from 20:00 to 21:00 UTC on a shortwave frequency of 9660 kHz from a transmitter believed to be in Kostinbrod, Bulgaria, and beamed to Africa. IRRS does not identify the locations of the transmitters it uses. The transmitter was switched on several minutes before 20:00 UTC but the usual IRRS sign-on music was not broadcast and the first few seconds of the program audio were skipped. This episode of "War Room: Pandemic," entitled "Black Monday Deuce (Pt. 1)" concerned the effect of the pandemic on the economy on the day the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped nearly 3,000 points or about 13% of its value. The program lasts about 49 minutes with the rest of the hour being music fill. During the podcast, Bannon mentions the stations carrying the show including IRRS. There is an IRRS identification at the end of the recording before the transmitter signs off. IRRS broadcast "War Room: Pandemic" several times per day for a number of weeks in March and April 2020.The broadcast was received by the Web-interface wideband software-defined radio at the University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands, with a "Mini-Whip" antenna in AM synchronous mode with 5.08 kHz total bandwidth RF filtering. Reception was generally good although there is some noise possibly due to local interference.

White Sox GM, Rick Hahn, spoke a few times over the last week regarding a variety of different matters. Why didn't the Sox extend a QO to Rodon? What internal options are being looked at for RF? Who's being targeted for 2B? How will the team address the porous bullpen? It's rare when Hahn gives a straight answer. Most of the time you have to read between the lines and infer. Despite the irritating management speak, the Sox do indeed have some holes to fill and will need to be creative this off-season. Go Sox.

Pistachios are one of the world's healthiest and tastiest nuts. The trees they grow on are native to the desert, so they only grow a few places in the world, most commonly in the Middle East, California, and Hurricane, Utah. Wait, what? Hurricane, Utah? Bryce Thornberg, an engineer by trade, discovered the climate and growing conditions in Hurricane, located in Southern Utah, were a lot like Iran and Turkey. So, twenty or so years ago he planted some trees, and the rest is Red Rock Pistachios history. Bryce and his daughter, Halley Bonfanti, join our host Brandon Young for the latest episode of the Taste of Harmons Podcast. You will want to hear about the fascinating journey Bryce and family have taken as they supply Utah with the tasty—and very addictive—treats. Bryce Thornberg Along with running the family-owned pistachio orchard, Bryce Thornberg is the co-founder, president and CEO of dB Systems. Bryce has his bachelor of science and master's degree in engineering. In 1991, he founded dB Systems Inc. with his father, Dean Thornberg. With decades of experience in RF design engineering, project management, production testing, and engineering management, Bryce has been integral to the growth and success of both companies. Halley Bonfanti Halley Thornberg-Bonfanti is the manager of Red Rock Orchards and is also the vice president and CFO of another family-owned business, dB Systems. Halley loves to put her education and experience to good use by driving innovation, growth, and success. She thrives when creating new processes to increase efficiency and productivity. Striving to take the company to the next level while ensuring they have a great team and benefits has been a difficult but fulfilling challenge.

In episode 242 of the Indie Music Podcast, Doug and Matt talk about Ground Loops and RF Interference. They will discuss the common sources of grounding problems and strategies for removing ground loops and RF interference. We hope you enjoy the episode! The post #242 – Ground Loops and RF Interference appeared first on Indie Music Podcast.
In a recent episode, hosts Darren and Duncan talked about a system's ability to collect and drain RF interference through the connected enclosures and low-impedance paths to ground. In this show, the guys -- and Darren specifically -- drill down further into high frequency bogey man land. Are modern chassis boxes even good at being faraday cages? How do designers maximize effectiveness in removing RF from a circuit, and what about tubes? Lots of questions answered in this fairly geeky episode of The Hifi Podcast. Stay tuned, because the album of the week is jaw-dropping.
A lot of potential names are out there surrounding the White Sox: Marcus Semien, Chris Taylor, Ketel Marte. Some make sense. Some are pipe dreams. We take listener ideas and try to figure out of they make sense. Also, can you make Yoan Moncada into your RF solution? We explain why it isn't so simple. And the narrative that the White Sox have spent all their money isn't entirely accurate...at least it shouldn't be. Have a fun guest you can put on Sox In The Basement?

Hawkeye 360 sees itself as unique among space-based data services. Instead of collecting data through imagery, or Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Hawkeye 360 maps Radio Frequency emissions to produce what they call space-based RF analytics. Unique solutions solve unique problems, and so, Hawkeye 360 has been able to carve out its own distinct business in a crowded field, while also partnering with a large number of its peers. Another fascinating aspect of the company's distinctiveness is its business model, and this is exactly why we invited Hawkeye 360 CEO John Serafini on the podcast. If you've listened to our recent discussions about space data providers, you've noticed that we've honed in on the massive scope and scale of their services. How do companies that can produce such a wide range of data insights for a wide range of customers find focus? Which vertical markets do you start with? How do you learn about those markets and where do you go from there? Hawkeye's Serafini doesn't ask those questions, because he's already answered them. In this episode, he tells us how he found the focus of his data business in government and national intelligence and why he believes you can't serve major markets like his on a part-time basis. We also talk about Hawkeye 360's rapidly expanding constellation and its ambitious upcoming 18-month launch schedule.

Deploying cell sites is complex. Radios, antennas, cables, and power must be installed properly, then tested to verify the site is functioning as designed before the installation crew leaves.Herein lies a problem. Whether testing RF, fiber, PIM or other parameters, test equipment is very sophisticated, and proper testing takes time. Contractors working on tight deployment schedules, may or may not have sufficient training to conduct the required tests.This means tests often are incomplete or conducted improperly. Dispatching another crew to complete the testing just adds time and costs to get cell sites on the air.Kashif Hussain, Solutions Marketing Director at VIAVI Solutions discusses with John Celentano, Inside Towers Business Editor these testing issues and ways to streamline them.Support the show (https://insidetowers.com/subscription/)
A listicle is an article comprising a list. A listicle is any piece of digital content that's formatted as a list. A listicle is an article comprising a list, usually with some kind of extra detail added to each item. What we have here, then, is a podsticle. Today on the B&H Photography Podcast, we catch up with the new photography gear that has been announced over the past few months. Attention goes to the Canon EOS R3 and Nikon Z 9 as big deal mirrorless reveals, the Nikon still scant on details, but what's clear from these releases is the continued shift away from the DSLR format for these manufacturers. FUJIFILM, Pentax, Olympus, and Sigma added mostly updates to existing cameras over recent months, while Panasonic and Sony offered new models aimed at vloggers and streamers. An odd couple of Sony a7R series updates also made our list of new cameras, a list that will surely have many additions by the time we host our “cameras of the year” episode, in December. The second half of the show is dedicated to lenses and accessories. Canon's funky new RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Fisheye 3D VR lens is highlighted and we mention several new Canon RF lenses, including the Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. FUJIFILM introduced two new fast aperture lenses to go with the X-T30 II camera announcement and a beautiful 18mm f/1.4 R WR lens. Nikon put out several lenses for the Z system, including the affordable NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 lens. Of the other manufacturers, all of whom released new lenses recently, Tamron was the busiest, with five entries. Also of note is Sigma's new “Sports” designated 150-600mm f/5.6-6.3 DG DN OS telephoto zoom lens available in Leica L, Canon EF, Nikon F and Sony E mounts and the Venus Optics Laowa Argus 35mm f/0.95 lens. We conclude the gear update with new light systems from Profoto, Godox, and Aputure, and we also mention webcams, drones, and new tabletop tripods from Joby.

A key aspect of building and maintaining advanced wireless networks is that everything must be tested - RF, fiber, PIM, and other parameters. Network operators must demonstrate to the FCC and to their customers that the network is performing to design specifications.Portable test equipment used in the field and benchtop instruments used in development labs are very sophisticated, can be very expensive, and must be calibrated periodically to maintain accuracy.Electro Rent, a leading supplier of test equipment from a variety of manufacturers, offers rental and leasing options while providing calibration and logistics support services.Jim Platner, VP-Business Operations at Electro Rent speaks to John Celentano, Inside Towers Business Editor on how a test equipment rental/leasing model benefits carriers, tower companies and their contractors.Support the show (https://insidetowers.com/subscription/)
Nerve blocks are a common method to treat low back pain, particularly chronic low back pain. Can photobiomodulation therapy have results equal to RF or lidocaine nerve blocks? In this summary of a 2016 study on lidocaine injections vs radio frequency nerve blocks vs laser nerve blocks, results showed that laser nerve blocks had better long-term results.Study mentioned in this episode:Photobiomodulation of the dorsal root ganglion for treatment of low back pain: a pilot studyVisit the LTI website for more information and to find a laser therapy provider near you.Are you a healthcare provider?Laser Therapy Institute Podcast

GARY VOORHIS: has a background in mechanical engineering and working as an electronic and RF technician. He was a fire control-man and Aegis Computer/ CEC technician in the United States Navy. His responsibilities included the operation, maintenance, and repair of the Aegis weapon systems and non-Aegis senor systems to test and evaluate experimental upgrades to the Aegis baseline 6.1 and Cooperative Engagement Systems or CEC for short. During his time on the U.S.S. Princeton, Voorhis had the task of security and inventory of top-secret and classified information and materials, including being trained on the W.A.S.P military recon U.A.V. for the Pacific Fleet during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. On the week of the 14th of November 2004, he was an eyewitness of the U.S.S. Nimitz "tic-tac" events. As a result of this experience, he was interviewed by Chris Mellon for the History Channel Show UNIDENTIFIED: INSIDE AMERICA'S UFO INVESTIGATION. Today, Voorhis is the President of UAP expeditions. The Mission Statement is as follows: The mission, duty, and purpose UAP Expeditions Organization (UAPx) are to identify, classify, understand, and provide a public repository of knowledge on Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon. UAPx, with preliminary data analysis, supports the construct that if and when individual UAP incidents are resolved, they will fall into one of five potential explanatory categories: airborne clutter, natural atmospheric phenomena, government or industry developmental program, the foreign adversary system, and classifications which will require intense scientific study to explain appropriately. *************************** Beyond The Tinfoil Hat is a weekly podcast brought to you by The Experiencer Support Association.

In this week's podcast, we start things off with a closer look at a new robotic system developed by a team of researchers at MIT called RFusion. We investigate how it combines RF information, visual data, and neural networks to find and retrieve objects with ease. (Spoiler alert: it can even find objects when they are buried under a pile and fully out of view.) Also this week, Tariq Ahmad (element14) joins us to discuss element14's new Spy Nerd Challenge. We chat about the motivations behind the creation of this unique electronic design contest, how you can get involved and what you can win.
Time flies (or fugit irreparabile tempus as the cool Hellenistic teens might say) when you're enjoying this EYE ON NPI - this week we're featuring the Raltron Crystal Resonators Engineering Design Kit (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/r/raltron/crystal-resonators-engineering-design-kit), a kit of 66 different crystal oscillators in various packages, frequencies and load capacitances. Crystals! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal) They're so cool sounding, who doesn't love sparkly rocks? While we usually associate the word with gems, bedazzling, and new-age healing, crystals made of piezo-electric material (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_oscillator) are great for generating precise sinusoids of a desired frequency. We need these to keep our electronics ticking away at the right frequency. And, somewhat annoyingly, each chip seems to require a totally different frequency. So you end up getting a lot of different crystals in your proto-typing bin. For example, 'timing' crystals tend to be 32.768 KHz, because if you have a 15 bit counter that keeps track of each oscillation, you'll count out one second every overflow. These crystals are super common, used in micro's for low-power or PLL-syncing, also in real-time-clocks that need to run on small coin cell batteries for years. So, 32KHz is maybe the most common value used that we've seen - this kit gives you many pages of them with different sizes. For microcontrollers, especially ones with USB, you'll want 12 or 24 MHz (USB peripherals tend to run on 12MHz or some multiple). Other chips often need 8MHz, 16MHz, 20MHz, 24 MHz or 32MHz. Then, sometimes you get unusual frequency requirements - like for RFID/NFC that uses 13.56 MHz RF frequencies, you'll need 27.12 MHz crystal (it's 2x the RF frequency, not surprisingly!) So this crystal oscillator kit (https://www.digikey.com/short/n5pvt3f9) is quite handy with 5 pieces of each value. Each crystal cut tape strip is in a pocket, looks like a holder for business cards or maybe baseball cards. The pocket is clear, so behind it is the identification information - what the part number is, the frequency, stability, tolerance, load capacitance, ESR, temperature and size. There's also a short URL and QR code for the datasheet from Raltron (big ups to them for getting their own URL shortener rather than leaning on a third party). Of course when you're ready to purchase for production, each part is stocked on Digi-Key as well (https://www.digikey.com/en/product-highlight/r/raltron/crystal-resonators-engineering-design-kit) I love this kit for having so many values and options and sizes. Every workshop and lab should have one, so whenever you're designing a new chip, you can verify the crystal size and specifications immediately. Goes great with a Digi-Key resistor kit (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/resistor-kits/653) or capacitor kit (https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/capacitor-kits/651). These Raltron Crystal Resonators Engineering Design Kit (https://www.digikey.com/short/n5pvt3f9) books are in stock now for immediate shipment from Digi-Key, order today and you can be oscillating by tomorrow morning!

Having a cool product makes sales a lot easier. How does shooting drones out of the sky with RF signals sound? That's exactly what DroneShield does. And their CEO, Oleg Vornik, was gracious enough to come on the Talent Insights podcast to talk about a niche many people aren't familiar with: government sales. Specifically in the defense sector. Oleg and James discussed a variety of areas, including: Traits a good salesperson needs in government sales. And how the sales cycles differs from the private sector. The types of “fit” sales leaders should look for (spoiler: not “culture fit”) How to hire for roles you yourself may not have direct experience in. The downsides of employee referrals and what to watch out for. Interview blunders sales job seekers should avoid. How to best pivot into the defense sector when you don't have experience. Have a listen, here.

Paul Casey: John Maxwell's says, "If change doesn't make you uncomfortable, it's not really change." There might be like, baby change. But, when we're talking about change in the seminar, we're talking about, like substantial change for your project, or your team, or an organization. Speaker 2: Raising the water level of leadership in the Tri-Cities of Eastern Washington. It's the Tri-Cities Influencer Podcast. Welcome to the TCI Podcast, where local leadership and self-leadership expert Paul Casey interviews local CEOs, entrepreneurs, and nonprofit executives, to hear how they lead themselves and their teams, so we can all benefit from their wisdom and experience. Here's your host, Paul Casey of Growing Forward Services, coaching and it could be individuals and teams to spark breakthrough success. Paul Casey: It's a great day to grow forward. Thanks for joining me today for our episode with Kyle Cox. Kyle is the Executive Director and Chief Librarian of the Mid-Columbia Libraries. And when I asked something quirky or interesting about Kyle, he told me about Scotland, and that's where he spent some of his childhood, but it made a conflict in his childhood. Kyle, tell us a little bit more. Kyle Cox: Yeah, so I spent a couple years of my childhood in Scotland. Actually, in St. Andrews, Scotland, the home of golf. Paul Casey: Wooh. Kyle Cox: I did got this PhD from St. Andrews. So, I moved from Western Washington as a fairly small child... To Scotland where I was also a fairly small child. But, it was an interesting experience. We were Americans, there were very few Americans in St. Andrews. At that time, you had basically grad students and their families, and Air Force officers and their families that were stationed to the RF base. Kyle Cox: So, there were very many of us. We were reminded constantly that we were Americans in a very negative way. I think, there's a lot of fun in the UK of reminding someone to yank. But, then, we came back from Scotland, I had a very thick Scottish accent. I only need metric because I have been single for so long over there. I even have forgotten some American history and basic American stuff. Kyle Cox: So, everyone, when I came back, including at school, thought I was actually Scottish, no one believed that I was an American. And, for me, as a child, it was a very formative experience because I was a stranger in a strange land. And then, I was a stranger in my own land. Paul Casey: Wow. Kyle Cox: Until, kind of feeling like a stranger in both places, after basically going through acculturation and socialization and Scotland made me, so that I was no longer an American. Paul Casey: Wow. Kyle Cox: But, it really again, formed a lot of my wife experience a kid, good and bad, honestly. Paul Casey: And probably, funded a good therapist for couples. All right. You got to do the accent. You have some to talk about the library on your accent. Kyle Cox: Yeah. And so, I can usually do a pretty good Scottish accent, not always on a command. The town... I don't know if you remember the song, and I would walk 500 miles? Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: They lived in Fife, which is where we lived. And the town they lived in was called Otter Box in Scotland. So, Otter Box in Scotland. That's a real word, by the way. But, Scotland and it was very specific and it's a wonderful broke. Watch Outlander, if you want more Scottish accents. I probably am not the greatest at it anymore. Kyle Cox: But, the plus side though, Paul, is I can watch a lot of stuff from the BBC and have no problem understanding what they're saying. And a lot of other people need subtitles. So, I guess that's my expense superpower as a result of living in the US. Paul Casey: All right. Tri-City Influence listeners, if you need a translator, you've got Kyle on your side. Kyle Cox: You can have me translate BBC shows, if you need me. Paul Casey: Awesome. We'll dive in. Let's check in with our Tri-City Influencers sponsor. Take back your weekends and let Senske Services be your green team. Senske Services is a locally owned and operated company founded in 1947, that has been working with families for nearly 75 years to help create and maintain environments that are great places to live, work and play. Paul Casey: They are a family business built on family values. And Senske dedicated to delivering quality and providing exceptional customer service. Senske offers a variety of services including full service lawn care, pest control, tree care and Christmas decor. You may have seen their holiday lights show at the corporate office, it is a must see every year. Paul Casey: Services are backed by the Senske promise, which means the job will be done right or they come back out. To learn more about the services Senske provides and the offers available to you, visit senske.com. Thank you for your support of leadership development in the Tri-Cities. Paul Casey: So, welcome, Kyle. I was privileged to meet you through Leadership at Tri-Cities which I've been able to save for many of my guests for this podcast over the years because they are the influential people here in Tri-Cities. And you have served on the board, they're even class director and they're excited about being the next class director again, and... Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: ... adding value wherever you go. So, let's look at our Tri-City Influencers can get to know you. Tell us a little bit about the libraries, and then a little bit more about what you do for about 80% of your average day. Kyle Cox: Sure. The combi libraries is an inner County Library District. So, we serve Ben Franklin counties. We also serve Adams County. So, we have 12 branches to cross but in Franklin County. The only place we don't have service is City of Richland, which has their own library. But we go from Prosser, the West all the way up to Columbus to the East, which is about halfway to Pullman. Kyle Cox: And then, two branches in candlewick, two branches in Pascoe, serve a lot of people, over a quarter million residents. Actually, are served by MCL. So, what do I do? I'm the Executive Director, the Chief Librarian. Most of what I do every week is coaching people. That's a huge part of my job. We have over 120 employees. Kyle Cox: We have, again, over 12 work sites. We serve a lot of people, different needs. Obviously, it's not just books at the library. We help people in so many different parts of their lives, finding jobs, helping people write resumes, navigating the internet, also checking out lots of books and movies, et cetera. Kyle Cox: But, again, primarily, what I spend most of my time on is coaching people. I have a fantastic team of really good people who know what they're doing, which makes my job easy. But, it's more about coaching. A big part of it is, obviously, resource allocation, monitoring resources, seeing where they're going, are we accomplishing what we're setting out to do. Kyle Cox: And then, I think the third big part of what I spend my time doing is looking for opportunities and threats. I think most really good CEOs are looking at the outside. They're scanning the environment to seeing what's out there in terms of how we could better serve our customers, how we could better serve our region, how we could leverage partnerships, to better serve people, with existing partners, other agencies. Kyle Cox: And then, also, what's coming down the pike, what could threaten us in our ability to fulfill our mission. And so, that means lots of news. I read a lot of news, I'm got to, what, read a lot of trade news, especially. I'm a news junkie. So, I consume a lot of news that like news, past. Obviously, 12 plus months has met a lot of news, just consuming constantly. Kyle Cox: So, again, I would say coaching people, resource allocation, and then constantly scanning for opportunities and threats. That's probably the three most common things I do in my week. Paul Casey: I love how you lead with coaching as number one. Obviously, I'm a coach. And so, that's music to my ears when a leader says that. Coaching, of course, is a style of leadership. Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: And I just think it gets the best reception from your team because it's this arm round mentality of, "Hey, let's go towards this goal together." And I love how you lead with that. Why do you love what you do? Kyle Cox: I think at the end of the day, I think you can't love what you do 100% of the time. And it's more about finding the why. And, sometimes, again, everyone, including CEOs and tech breakers, et cetera, have to be reminded there why. One of the things that comes to mind frequently is, I was on the State Library Board for six years. We have meetings all over the state. I went to Seattle and Olympia quite a bit. Kyle Cox: I had a little bit of break time between flights and my meetings. And so, I went to my childhood library in West Seattle that I loved very much. I have very fond memories of. It's a beautiful old Carnegie building. And I had not been there for 20 plus years. And so, I thought, "You know what? I'm going to go to my library after being in hours of library meetings." And I walking into the up, those steps into this very old, beautiful brick building, I was very much overwhelmed by how much I loved being in that space and how many memories I had of learning. Kyle Cox: I am a lifelong learner. I love learning. If I'm not learning, I'm actually not very happy, quite frankly. I know that of myself. And I'm reminded of being a small, again, a small child walking up to what I thought was a huge building, which in retrospect was not that big. But, to me, it was gigantic. And just remembering that I could find anything I ever wanted to learn about or read about or listen to, and that people at the library are not there to tell me what is good or bad, but just to help me find that. Kyle Cox: And, I'll be honest, I was very little overwhelmed by the positive feelings that I had. That reminds me of why I do what I do. In our country, we are privileged... People forget this, we have a right to information in this country. Libraries exist to help people find information to learn, to escape, to enjoy. We don't even care why you're doing it. But, we have an obligation to provide you with that experience. Kyle Cox: Why brace people forget in our country are the most used cultural organizations, in almost every community go to. You don't think about it, because we're quiet. We're not as self-imposing or obvious or loud. If we're doing our job well, you're having a seamless experience. It's positive, you're getting what you need. Kyle Cox: And so, I think, for me, I love what I do, because I can help others feel the way that I felt as a child. And that, I feel whenever I could, walking through the steps, I'm like, "Oh, my gosh, there's literally anything I want to learn about, or I want to read about, or I want to experience." And that makes, I think lives more meaningful, more impacted, more aware of others. Kyle Cox: I think that the more that you learn, the more empathy you build in yourself and towards others. And I think that that's, again, an underlying human need that we have that we frequently overlook, because we're too busy dealing with everything else. Libraries do wonderful things on relatively little money compared to a lot of the other services that we fund to the public sector. But, we do it because we care about others. We care about our community. And, ultimately, we believe that information and knowledge helps make people have a better life and enjoy their lives more. That's why I love what I do. Paul Casey: Makes me want to go to the library right now. Kyle Cox: You should, Paul. Why aren't you at the library right now? And, of course, we have a fantastic... We have Libby... Paul Casey: That's right. Kyle Cox: ... that means so people use digital resources now because of COVID. There was a period where we couldn't even check out anything physically for about five months, it was crazy. But, now, again, we have so many people every single day. I use it, audio books, eBooks, magazines, it's all there, and it's all on your tablet or phone. If it's not checked out, you can get an under 30 seconds, typically. So... Paul Casey: Yeah, tell the listeners about Libby because I know some of our listeners do use Audible or maybe some other pie graph. Kyle Cox: And I do too, I subscribe to Audible. I hope that's okay to say. I know my kids both love audiobooks. And so, and, sometimes, because of how digital publishing works, we can't as a library always get digital materials... Paul Casey: Sure. Kyle Cox: ... for specific imprints like Amazon's, Imprint, doesn't always release or sell to library. Paul Casey: Okay. Kyle Cox: So, there is complications. But, Libby is the app that you can download. What you would do is, if you have an MCL card, you just basically sign in with your card information. The access to our entire collection, which is it's one of the biggest in the state. We started really early back in 2009. That's before most people... And we've just been putting money into it, and resources every single year. Kyle Cox: During COVID, because we were able to be open to the public, we shifted quite a bit of money, almost a quarter million dollars just to the new materials for digital... Paul Casey: Wow. Kyle Cox: ... because the demand was so, so high. So, yeah, demo Libby on your app store, you'll log in with your library account information. And Paul is showing you right now, it's fantastic. But, honestly, the nice thing too is that there's no late fees. We don't have late fees anymore, anyway. But, it will check itself back in, if we even tell you want to renew this, if no one's waiting for it, you can get it renewed, it's a really fast, convenient way of doing it. Kyle Cox: Again, not just eBooks, but also audio books in both English and Spanish. And we're working in other languages, too. We have picture books for kids and early beginning readers really chapter books. And then, a huge magazine collection, which I'm really excited about. Magazines are in that weird period of, are they going to survive or not? Kyle Cox: And because of the digital platform, there's a great way to consume magazines without feeling like you're killing half a forest just to get your magazine fixed in every month. Paul Casey: Man, it's so good, so good. I love how you said leaders are learners. And when we're learning, we're growing. And you have all created the atmosphere of learning there in the library. And it is one of the first things, I think of when I think about where do I go to learn? Where do I go to grow? And that's fantastic. Paul Casey: So, let me go there with you. So, leaders have to have a growth mindset, which you do. And I can't tell you how many of my guests when I asked the very last question of how do you want to gain more influence? They say something along the lines of keep learning, keep growing, keep professionally developing. So, how do you keep evolving as a leader, Kyle? What's in your professional development plan? Kyle Cox: I think part of it is a good indicator if I'm growing is, if I'm uncomfortable. Paul Casey: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Kyle Cox: Honestly, I think that we... In our society, our experience is designed to be as comfortable as possible. I think that private sector, public sector, it's trying to be as comfortable as possible. So, what I like to do quite frankly, is again, I consider a lot of news, I read a lot of time looking for new things and thoughts. There's a couple of places I go to for professional's sources, some really good blogs that I really love because they're already kind of a thought leader on that. Kyle Cox: But, what I have found, though, is that for me to evolve, I do need to be a little uncomfortable. I need to have something that challenges me. Sometimes, with app, especially if I become a little too uncomfortable with an idea, I'll have to hit pause, and I need to come back to it. But, I have done enough work on myself that I'm aware of that. Kyle Cox: And for me, it's also figuring out why am I uncomfortable because of this? What about this is making me uncomfortable? Frequently, when someone has a great idea, it's not because they want to make you mad, or alienate you or exclude you. It's because there's a need that you don't fully understand yet. I think that's part of it. It's figuring out, how can I better understand other's needs or where they're coming from? Kyle Cox: And I think as I understand that, more and more, and it's something I'm going to be working on until I die. It helps me grow as a person. Again, I think empathy is so important. It is a trait that we frequently overlook in leadership development. As I've told, a lot of my staff, like some of the stuff that you're working on to be a leader at work is going to make you a better human being, and we are one unit. We are not... I tried doing that. I think, a lot of leaders have tried doing that, where you think, what, this is business mode. This is personal mode. This is parenting mode. We're all the same person. Kyle Cox: And so, as you're working on things, and you're learning about things, and sometimes, confronting things that you don't particularly like, as you work on that, and as you consider it, and as you begin practice those skills, and that awareness over and over again, you're going to be better in general, and you're going to hopefully, improve all parts of your life because you can't be great at one thing, and horrible another because those innate skills are so connected. Kyle Cox: You mentioned coaching. Coaching, again, as I did more and more coaching, I think with my own staff, I saw myself getting more coaching focused with the kids, with my kids a little bit more. And so, it's this idea, I tell this to myself all the time, we are one person. You can't get really good at this one part. I mean, I guess you can, I would not recommend it. Because you're compartmentalizing different parts of your personality, which is not healthy. Kyle Cox: But, again, the more that you engage with all parts of yourself, and build up again, more self-awareness, more empathy, so that you can understand the fact that if I get offended or upset or uncomfortable, where is that coming from? Because typically, it's not the source. The source is not intended to do that to me. Again, it could, chances are it won't. Kyle Cox: And I feel like that's how I grow is by finding a little room for growth. I like being challenged. My wife has said that point blank, if I am bored, I get complacent. And so, I like having a stretch goal because it makes me feel the need to work there. Again, sometimes, I have to hit pause and say, "Okay, you're getting too upset about this, come back to this in 24 hours or come back to this in a week." But, I think it's the quest of self-improvement. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: I think, where you just have to constantly be looking at the fact that, again, not everyone is setting out to make your life harder or to whatever you think, but in the moment, we might feel that way. So, yeah, I hope that answered the question. Paul Casey: Yeah, it's good stuff. It reminds me of the, like the red, yellow and green zones that we can have where green is just, we're in that productivity. It feels really comfortable, almost too easy some complacency sets in. Yellow is that stretch zone that somebody won't call it fun, comfortable, right? It's where you have to... Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: ... try to put on a little bit of a smirk, smile and say, "Alright, I'm going to go into this zone where I'm a little uncomfortable, because I know I need to push myself with a challenge. And then, red zone, you don't want to go there because that's the burnout zone where you just... Kyle Cox: Exactly. Paul Casey: ... out or freak out, and go into a panic attack. So, we just need more yellow zone in our life. And it sounds like you like to go there. Kyle Cox: I do. I do. The challenge, though, is that when you've been in yellow and red zones a lot, sometimes, you don't always recognize that a green zone is a good place to be too. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: I think that's the other piece too, is that, again, there's this... We're socialized over our entire lives as to what a leader or a boss or whatever you want to call is. And I think part of that for, especially in your 20s is, you're busy. You're constantly busy. But if I'm busy, I'm productive. If I busy, I'm impactful. If I'm busy, you know what I mean? It's this whole idea that I have to constantly be in yellow right up to the edge of red as much as possible to be like this, on the move, impactful leader. And I think that we also have to make time to enjoy the green zones that we have. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: I think frequently, we undervalue the green zones during times that we have because I think that's how you help feed your own individual needs is that, it doesn't have to be yellow all the time. It doesn't have to be bright orange, whatever color you want to use. But, I think, that's also that means stepping back and learning about yourself, and what your own needs are. And in addition to the needs of your team, just being able to say, sometimes, it's good to have green. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: And, sometimes, it's not always a negative to be able to have time where you can breed, where you cannot feel like you're constantly stretching or pulling or pushing yourself or others or a project. Paul Casey: Yeah, that's good because... And if you're listening, and you're an achiever, you totally know what Kyle's talking about because it's always like continuous improvement, on to the next thing, push, push, push. And the green zone can both be a strength zone, or it could be a recovery zone... Kyle Cox: Exactly. Paul Casey: ... or just pull back, and then get out of overdrive for a while, just stay in drive. And now, let's go to a break. And when we come back, I'm sure the green zone is also helpful for your mental and emotional wellness. Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: So, I'm going to ask you about that in just a moment. But, first, a shout out to our sponsor. Are you dreaming of a lush, weed free lawn? Have you heard what your neighbors are saying about their Senske lawn? A lush, weed free lawn in within your reach. Don't just take it from us. Listen to what people in your community are saying about Senske Services. Paul Casey: Lavanda L. of Kennewick said, "I've been a customer for several years, and I can depend on Senske to take good care of my lawn. I always get a call before each treatment and a detailed report after." Mildred W. of Kennewick said, "The workers are always willing to satisfy the customers. And that says a lot. Thank you for everything." Paul Casey: Senske Services is a locally-owned and operated company that has been in the business of lawn and tree care for nearly 75 years. This means nobody knows green lawns like Senske. Let Senske help you achieve the lawn of your dreams by visiting senske.com today to learn more. Paul Casey: So, Kyle, to avoid burnout negativity, we probably do need to go into green zone, how do you feed your mental and emotional health and wellness on a regular basis? Kyle Cox: That's a good question. It's something that I struggle with, I think. I think that... I don't want to say it's the why of productivity because that's a little too strong of a word. But, I think it's making time for self-care and space. It's making time for green zones. I worked with an executive coach for many years. I had a great experience with them. And part of it was making sure that you create a great sense because I was so used to being in yellow. It was being able to say,"You know what? I don't need to be running five things right now. I don't want to be on five boards." There was a point where I was on six boards. Paul Casey: Oh, my goodness. Kyle Cox: I'm on one board right now. And, and that feels good. I think for me, it's being able to say and prioritize, tonight, we can stay in, or being kind with yourself. I think, it's something that leaders need to do a better job with, is learning to be kind to yourself, because as you, again, depending on your life experience that can be difficult because of standards that you set for yourself or perceptions that you worry about. Learning to be kinder to yourself means that you have more capacity to be kinder to others. Paul Casey: Oh, it's good. Kyle Cox: And I think that it's something I'm going to be working on again, the rest of my life is trying to be kinder to myself. A lot of leaders, I think set really unrealistic expectations or overly stringent expectations of what we think we should be able to do. Knowing all the things that we know that others don't know that are going on in our head in our life experience. Kyle Cox: And so, I think those lily pads or green zones that you get to hop to is where you get to say, "You know what? I am really burned out right now on this." And being honest, in terms of, is there something else I could work on? Is there another project that's actually more impactful? Or could have more potential to be impactful? You know, what does that look like? Kyle Cox: But, again, that comes back to self-awareness and being able to say pause, I'm not reacting. I am proactive, you know what I mean? I'm being proactive in terms... And intentional with how I spend my time and energy and effort. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: And that takes a lot of work. It's something, again, I've got to worry about the rest of my life. And I know that. Paul Casey: Yeah, what I like about that is what you said about when you set realistic expectations for yourself, when you're kind to yourself, when you forgive yourself, then you expand that capacity to do that with your team, and all those around you because no one wants to live under a workaholic, slave driver, as a boss, who's always pushing themselves so much the extreme that you feel like you've got to push to the extreme too. Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: So, being under a leader that is intentional about their own self-care really feels like an, "Ahhh." Like, okay, my leader gets work life balance or whatever we want to call that. Good stuff. So, it's easy to get trapped in reacting to crises in a leadership where you feel like you're just putting out fires all day. And as leaders, we have to put out our fires here and there. But, how do you, Kyle, specifically step back and take a look at the bigger picture? Kyle Cox: I think part of it is checking in with your team. I think just hearing where they're coming from too because whether it's a fire or a crisis or emergency, how you perceive it might be very different than your team perceives it. And, just being very aware of that, I think that when I was younger, and cutting my teeth, although I'm still cutting my teeth as a leader. I think, I had a tendency to be more disclosing in terms of... This is everything I know. Kyle Cox: And I think that as I've gotten more seasoned to this, and gain more and more years of this, I have a little more judicious in terms of, "Okay, this is where we're at." And I think part of it is being able to hit pause and say, "Okay, what do we need to know? What's coming down the pike?" So, that when we create space to have conversations about what to do, it doesn't feel so urgent, or this is where I'm already going. Kyle Cox: I think, sometimes in crises, you have staff that want you to be directive, and they want you to say, "This is what we're going to do," because depending on the level of crisis, or emergency. And, sometimes, you have to do that. You also hopefully, have built competency in relationship with your staff so that they trust you and understand that if you're recommending something, or if you're directing them to do something, it's based on X, Y, or Z. And it's because that relationship in that experience. Kyle Cox: I think, for me, it's just again, being self-aware. And sometimes, checking in with my wife. We're working at home during COVID that was really helpful, just to get an unbiased third party, that's the benefit of working with a coach, I can say that, is that you get to have people that you trust that are not part of your core kind of nest at work. Kyle Cox: It's also just kind of, for me, I'm a learner, I like data, I'm a planner. I think, at any given planner out of necessity. But, I like planning. And I think for me, it's about the scanning, what do we know what's coming down the pike through a COVID? I would call and I would talk to the Health District and the Governor's office. Even if it wasn't, because I was going to get information, so that I knew, and I could... Again, share with my staff, "Hey, this is what's coming down the pike. And this is what we can expect." Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: I mean, in a lot of ways, it's about shepherding and guiding in terms of the more that I know the terrain, the more that I can help us get to where we need to go. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: With the least amount of harm or danger. I told that to some younger leaders in the past is that, sometimes, you don't get to make the best decision. You don't get to make a perfect decision. Sometimes, it is, how can I do the least harm out of this situation. Again, hopefully, you're not doing that very often. But, again, that takes experience that takes being... Working with your team, and navigating these kinds of experiences. Kyle Cox: It also means, I think, giving some room for people. Not everyone's going to get the information initially. You're going to have to repeat it. You're going to have to talk about it. You're going to have to reiterate it. And you can have... That's been my experience with COVID is that, be prepared for talking, be prepared for conversation, be prepared for lessons learned and changing with your team. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: People refer to talk about it. You know what I mean? Paul Casey: Right. Yeah, you said a few great things. There are some gems that create relationships with your team, because it's hard for someone to follow a leader they don't completely trust. So, those relationships, when crises come are it's forged before that. Not during the crisis, usually, it's before that. You can spend some capital then, I guess. Paul Casey: But, during the crisis, then you said create space, space for the opportunities coming down the pike, create space for reiteration of a message, create space for those conversations. And then, he said, create that self-awareness of where am I at right now, so that I'm not reacting in crisis, people are start looking to me to be the rock and leadership. And so, I need to make sure that I'm taking good care of myself. So, a lot of good stuff there. Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: All those are intentional leadership behaviors, none of them are urgent in the moment, right? They're quadrant too in the old covey model of not urgent, but boy... Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: ... when you need to call on that moments, if you've built that quadrant too intentionality, it'll come through for you. So, one of the most difficult tasks that a leader as you know, Kyle, is having the difficult conversation, right? Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: I think, every leader has these moments where they have to confront a team member. How do you bolster the courage to do that? Kyle Cox: Practice. I think, when I've had to have difficult conversations, and I've had to have multiple difficult conversations, it's practicing. Again, sometimes, it's a script. It's making sure that you know what needs to be communicated. It also depends again, on the dynamic, if you're working in a union environment or other kinds of environments. There's also mechanics associated with that. Kyle Cox: One of the things that I worked on with my coach was realization, I should say. I've talked about this with my wife, I said, "If I care about someone, I have a hard time giving critical feedback." It's something that I have been aware of, again, it's a huge... It can hamper your ability to effectively have difficult conversations. If you're worried about, I'm going to hurt their feelings, or I don't want to hurt their feelings. Kyle Cox: So, it's something I worked on with my coach quite a bit was this idea of thinking about issues as a specific thing. Again, there's a lot of strategies to do this really well. But, I think just being very mindful of what I'm talking about, where I'm coming from, why it's relevant. Again, if you're having regular conversations, you shouldn't be having this many difficult conversations. Paul Casey: Right. Kyle Cox: I think that's the other piece too is that having regular check-ins and feedback as much as possible, which I acknowledge has been difficult with COVID, especially, is that you're losing some of that. I would say, positive interaction that isn't an issue or a crisis, or something that's what you would consider critical or corrective feedback. Kyle Cox: Having that dialogue going, I think, it really helps with that. At the library, when we were still shut down, we were having... Our exec teams having twice a week meetings, just to check in, because we didn't see each other at the office. And it was just as much to be seen and communicate with each other as it was to convey information and give updates. Kyle Cox: I think the more that you... It's also okay to say this is difficult. I think as a leader, we forget the fact that we can own our own emotions and say, "This is difficult for me." And you will even say why, if you really want to, but owning the fact that you as a human have emotions and feelings. And, sometimes, they're irrational. And, sometimes, they are contradictory. And, sometimes, they're involving things that your staff don't even understand or fully grasp because you haven't shared that with them, or et cetera. And so, I think I'm just taking stock of that fact, I write out, always write out when you need to get out. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: Practice it, review it, because in a lot of those conversations, I mean, there's a couple of different ways those conversations can go. But, just being able to be on point in terms of, this is the stuff I got to get out. I think that really helps. And then, again, own your perspective, own your emotions. If something is disappointing to you, you can say, I disappointed for blank, provide evidence as do that, you know what I mean? Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: I think that we get so caught up in the critical feedback piece that we can get. It's hard to get you to unwrap yourself when you get so wrapped up in this. Paul Casey: Yup. Kyle Cox: Am I going to hurt their feelings? Am I going to be seen as blank, too mean, too harsh, too critical? Paul Casey: Yeah, I like how you said the regular stream of feedback is probably going to lessen the need for too much or too big of critical feedback, because you're... There's also... Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: Those where... I'm keeping in touch with my team so well, that a lot of time hasn't gone by or something has blown up in between. So, that one, I've seen your script because I've had the privilege of working with your organization, and you're very thorough in your script for a critical conversation. I think that is excellent because if emotions do stir up and they will, you could squirrel away and ramble, and then put your foot in your mouth and not get to the outcome that you're trying to get in this moment. And so, I love how thorough you are in preparing for those conversations, good stuff. Kyle Cox: I think part of it, Paul, is it's... I don't want to fix the situation, I want to make it better. I think that's the difference is... Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: ... if you want to make it better, because it's not just about interventional feedback, where I'm going to have an intervention because I need to change this. I think part of that is being able to step back and also say, "Hey, if we can work on these interrelated issues, too, we can make the whole thing better. And I think that's usually... It takes a lot more work. It takes a lot more time. But, if you can do that, I think you can get a better result. Kyle Cox: It also shows that you're investing in the person. It's not just about, I want you to fix this. It's that, I care about you as a human being. I trust in you, you're a good valued member of my team, let's work on these things because this will make you better and I'll make you a better team player. Kyle Cox: But, you have to invest in your staff as much as you can, and it's something that's tough because you think about trainings with dollars and cents and like per diem and all these things. But, it's also, okay, how can we support people as much as possible? Paul Casey: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Yeah, I heard it once that it's care fronting not confronting. You're having this conversation out of care. And you're even... I think, you alluded to it in there is, there could be some organizational dynamics that is hurting this employee's performance. And we're just going to be honest about that, too. We're not here to bang them over the head, we're investing in them in their future. So, that's some of the best answers I've heard on this podcast. So, way to go, Kyle. Kyle Cox: Oh, good. That's good. Paul Casey: I hope that was helpful to our listeners. Kyle Cox: Yeah. Paul Casey: Finally, what advice would you give to new leaders or anyone who wants to keep growing and gaining more influence? Kyle Cox: I would say, your goal should not be to gain influence. I would say, that's not my goal. It's to make things better. Paul Casey: Mm-hmm (affirmative). Kyle Cox: You said, "How you gain more influence?" I would actually say, if that's your objective, you need to take stock of your priorities, quite frankly. It should not be about... I mean, I'm thinking about the Otters, the high [inaudible 00:36:02] disc of really influence. Paul Casey: Yes. Kyle Cox: And, at different times in my life, I've displayed more of those traits. But, I think for me, it'd be take time to learn, Leadership Tri-Cities is a fantastic program. One of the great things that happens with Leadership Tri-Cities is that, you get a basically, a scan of the terrain, the scan of a region, you get to look at all the different sectors that serve our community, and you get to see the challenges and the obstacles. And, also, the opportunities that we all face as we serve our community. Kyle Cox: And so, I would say, as a leader, we have a tendency to think or want to think. I know what I'm doing, I am comfortable in my own skin, I can lead the charge of San Juan Hill, like Teddy Roosevelt. And I think that that's a very two-dimensional view of what leadership is. I think leadership is so many things combined, part of it is interpersonal skills. It is the ability to communicate. It's the ability to communicate verbally and non-verbally. Kyle Cox: But, I think so much of it is, is also allowing yourself time to learn from others, allowing yourself time in learning. They realize, you don't have to act all the time. You don't have to lead the charge all the time. Also, take stock of the fact that that San Juan Hill to use this metaphor might not be worth hurting up. It's just a matter of just taking stock of what you care about personally, and figure out how you can translate that into how you can take. Kyle Cox: You can basically, I'm trying to say it right. You can operationalize what you care about personally, and your professional behavior. And you can say this is how I can make things better. Again, I love learning. If I'm not learning, I'm not happy. It's a good thing I'm a librarian, because I think I'd be really unhappy if I wasn't in a learning profession. Kyle Cox: For me, again, it's figuring out how you can learn. I would say that, how can I learn about something? I don't know. How can I learn about people? I don't understand or know. How can I figure out the obstacles that people are facing and how can I help plug into that if I want to do that. It's just about learning. It's about having a growth mindset. Kyle Cox: If you want to be a good leader, you cannot have a fixed mindset that does not work. Those are two totally different things. You've got to be willing to learn and I think part of that is also being willing to be in situations where you are a little uncomfortable, where everyone might not agree with you. And being able to step back and say, "What can I learn from this? How can I learn from this? What can I do? Is this actually a place for me too?" Kyle Cox: Being honest is that, not every place is a place for you as a leader. And just being aware of mindful of that. Again, hopefully, surrounding yourself with people who care about things. I think passion is really important. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: For me, that's always a challenge is, if I'm not excited about it, it makes my life a whole lot harder. But, if I'm excited about it, I will give it 110% because I want to succeed. So, I'd say, learning about yourself, get as much self-awareness as humanly possible. Paul Casey: Yes. Kyle Cox: Work on yourself, work with a coach. I think that's a great way to develop as a leader. Look for organizations like Leadership Tri-Cities, which can help you expand your knowledge base and your experience base. Be kind to yourself. And then, again, all those things contribute to a growth mindset. And not even a growth mindset, a growth life. Paul Casey: Yeah. Kyle Cox: It's a lot easier to help others to grow if you're growing yourself. Paul Casey: That's so true. Yep, yep, have those leader, have those learner glasses on all the time. If I could sum up that last paragraph, that's what it would be both yourself, others, the situation, your team, all around. Great stuff. So, Kyle, how can listeners contact you if they wanted to connect with you? Kyle Cox: So, I mean, the easiest way would be through the library. Again, if you go to the library website, midcolumbianlibraries.org, you can get a hold of me that way. I'm also the one board, I'm on right now is Leadership Tri-Cities. I'm the class director for Class 26, which will be happening in 2022 at this point, but I'm involved with that. Kyle Cox: I'm happy to talk with listeners, if you want more information, although I would fully acknowledge they might know more about it than I do, so. Or, if you want access to great books, movies, materials, articles, et cetera, you can always take advantage of your local library and Mid-Columbian Libraries. Yeah. Paul Casey: You're here. Awesome. Kyle Cox: Keep reading, keep reading, keep learning. Honestly, this life is so complex. And I think to be a leader, you have to be living it. And you've got to figure out what that looks like from you because what it looks like for me, and you, Paul, it's different than what it is for anyone listening right now. Paul Casey: That's true. Kyle Cox: And there's a lot of opportunities to contribute and to give, and to support. And, find where you fits. And that means, trial and error. Paul Casey: It does. Kyle, thanks again for all you do to make the Tri-Cities a great place. And keep reading well. Kyle Cox: Thank you. Yes, keep reading, keep living. Thanks, Paul. Paul Casey: Let me wrap up our podcast today with the leadership resource to recommend. It's called Vidyard, V-I-D-Y-A-R-D, Vidyard. I stumbled upon through a recommendations where you can send video messages, you can attach them to an email and instead of just emailing somebody, you can just talk to them. They open up the attachment and there you are saying, "Hello, you can be..." If it's a potential client, you can introduce yourself. If it's a thank you, you can be super personal from your heart. And now, they can hear your tone of voice where they can't just in a plastic email. Paul Casey: So, check out Vidyard. They've got a free membership, and there's also a paid membership that can put some bells and whistles with it. But, it's just a way to be more personal in your email by doing it by video. Again, this is Paul Casey, I want to thank my guests Kyle Cox from Mid-Columbia Libraries for being here today on the Tri-City Influencer Podcast. Paul Casey: And we want to thank our TCI sponsor and invite you to support them. We appreciate you making this possible, so that we can collaborate to inspire leaders in our community. Finally, one more leadership tidbit for the road to help you make a difference in your circle of influence. Max Dupree says, "The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say, thank you, and in between the leader is a servant." Until next time, KGF, keep growing forward. Speaker 2: Thank you to our listeners for tuning in to today's show.

Our guest this week, Beth Matenaer, is a licensed professional counselor and trauma therapist living in South Carolina, who has worked with adults, children, adolescents, and families for more than 25 years. As a survivor of the Troubled Teen Industry, she has devoted her decades-long career to treating clients who exhibit the complexity of post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and other victims of high-conflict systems. Additionally, she is the co-creator and Clinical Director of the innovative Think Boxing program. As an adolescent, she was sent to a program heavily modeled after the Synanon cult. This self-help style school used attack therapy, loss of personal agency, physical labor, and isolation from friends and family as a way to tear down “troubled” teenagers in order to reform them. Throughout their conversation, Beth shares with Rachel both her clinical expertise and personal experience, she sheds light on complex trauma or (CPTSD) and how it often goes unrecognized or mistreated. Beth also tells the story of her traumatic time at a "Troubled Teen" program, where she was subjected to unhealthy “cultic” and exploitative relationships with staff members. She goes on to explain what happened when she ran away from the program and how her experiences inspired her to become a therapist focusing largely on misunderstood youth, traumatized children and adults, and highly dysfunctional family systems. Before You Go: Rachel emphasizes the importance of conducting research into any program before becoming involved, especially for parents who are often deceived by programs in the "Troubled Teen" industry. Rachel gives some tips on what parents should look out for when scouting programs and offers some advice on how to maintain a trusting relationship with their children.

Sinclair Kennally joins Sachin today for an in-depth course on how to detox from EMF. This conversation is filled with information and suggestions for lowering your EMF exposure and improving your health! Key Takeaways: [1:02] Sachin is excited about his special guest, toxicity expert, Sinclair Kennally. He takes a moment to introduce Sinclair and invites Sinclair to tell how she got into toxicity and EMF. [3:28] Sinclair had suffered chronic illness for much of her life. In her mid-twenties, she and her partner, Michael, moved in together and they both suffered a health crash within months. She later realized that the router they had hidden under the bed had interfered with their sleep. You really need to protect your sleep. [6:37] Sachin talks about a sensor Sinclair sent him that revealed EMF toxicity in his home. [8:14] There are several types of EMFs: Wireless radiation from Wi-Fi routers and cell phones, dirty electricity; and A/C fields measured as the voltage on your body. Measure for all types of EMF distress in the home wherever you spend the most time. [11:36] Look at your eating areas. In a high-EMF environment, you cannot enter parasympathetic dominance states, for the rest-digest-repair mode. If you have digestive issues or you work with clients or patients with digestive issues, take note. EMF mitigation can be the key to making all of your protocols far more effective. [12:29] Sachin reveals an unexpected source of EMF in his bedroom. [14:20] Sinclair and Michael had been working unsuccessfully on their health for years. When Michael threw out their router. even the cats stopped fighting and acted healthier. Michael had been very anxious at work. The dirty electricity in his office measured very high. Plug-in filters brought the dirty electricity down, along with staff sick days and contention. [18:20] Each EMF type affects 100% of the population. Thirty percent of us experience visible, measurable symptoms. Five percent of the population is considered electro-hypersensitive. Sachin shares a story about a child with a router under the bed. Removing the router improved the child's behavior significantly. Children and pets don't suppress how they feel. [22:24] Things you can do right now to lower your EMF exposure at home: Make sure you are not exposed to unnecessary stimulation while you are trying to sleep; use a lamp timer to turn off your router at night. The farther away you are from your router during the day, the better. Unplug anything unnecessary in your bedroom to limit dirty electricity. Get rid of metal bedframes, which raise your body's electricity. [24:09] Sinclair tells of a patient struggling with a variety of health issues and how body voltage and dirty electricity played a role in her problems. [25:30] Sinclair lists a variety of catastrophic conditions and symptoms linked to EMFs.in the home, including fertility issues. Why don't we hear more about this on the news? EMFs are measurable and fixable. [29:01] Sinclair is on a mission to help practitioners and people working on their health to be completely empowered in their own lives. She has taken mitigation measures in her home to keep her family safe and healthy even while using technology. [30:19] How to get meters for your home investigation. [30:41] Sinclair invites the audience to get on the waitlist for her Rapid EMF Reset class in November. Start mitigating today by unplugging everything in your bedroom. The trajectory of your life could change from that, alone. Do an audit of your home. [32:28] Does SafeSleeve work? If you don't have your phone on airplane mode, it is blasting you. Have shielding between your body and the device. Sinclair takes every phone call that she can through the computer to limit radiation. If you have to use your cell phone, holding the phone at arm's length lowers exposure dramatically. Use the speaker and shielding. [35:17] Sinclair gives her thoughts about putting your phone in a Faraday bag. Silver thread fabric bags dampen the signal. [36:20] There is a law in China requiring women who are pregnant to wear RF-protective clothing. [37:48] The Russian government helped develop the dirty electricity meter to help their citizens lower their risk from EMF exposure. [38:26] Sachin thanks Sinclair for sharing her knowledge and signs off until next time.

Those are not barriers. Barriers are Faraday cages and shielding specifically designed to stop frequencies in their tracks.” — Sinclair Kennally “The more we live on our devices, the harder it is to show up and be present with people. We actually lose those skills.” — Sinclair Kennally “This is not an edgy topic; we just don't get to hear about it on the news because Big Telecom is actually five to six times more powerful in political lobbying, at least in the United States, than Big Pharma is.” — Sinclair Kennally “We're on a mission to help practitioners and to help people working on their health to be completely empowered in their own lives. … I'm not expecting you to move to the woods and live in the dark on leaves. … I live in a city right up against other people.” — Sinclair Kennally “If you have to keep your phone on, please don't put it on your body, but if you're going to put it on your body, please use the shielding between your body and the phone.” — Sinclair Kennally

When it comes to RF (radio frequency) loitering around our music like a nuisance, audiophiles aren't completely out of luck -- we have a couple of tools at hand to deal with it. In this episode of The Hifi Podcast, the guys begin the main topic answering a question about shields and grounds in power cables, and parlay that into the larger topic about eradicating RF. Ultimately when the best course is to "move" the energy, the most effective tools will make the ground return the easiest pathway for the tiny little high frequencies.
