My next guest is truly a hockey pioneer, but he'd prefer to remain in the background, giving praise and credit to others around him. In 1959, Murray Williamson became an All-American in hockey at the University of Minnesota. Won silver as the head coach of the men's US Olympic hockey team in 1972 Sapporo, Japan. Was the coach and GM of the first US National Jr. team that participated in the inaugural World Junior Tournament held in Leningrad, Russia in 1973. In 2001, he was named one of the fifty most significant players and coaches in Minnesota hockey history. This only scratches the surface of all that Mr. Williamson not only accomplished, but has contributed to the game of hockey. For his full story, because we won't cover his full journey in this episode, I encourage you to pick-up a copy of his recent book, The Road To Respectability - Murray Williamson's Role In US Hockey. I've included the link where you can pick up your copy after you listen to the interview, I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it.

‘Normal thing to do’: Japanese fans tidy up at World Cup

レアジョブ英会話 Daily News Article Podcast

The sight of Japanese fans at a World Cup bagging trash after a match — win or lose — always surprises non-Japanese. Japanese players are famous for doing the same in their team dressing room: hanging up towels, cleaning the floor, and even leaving a thank-you note. The behavior is driving social media posts at the World Cup in Qatar, but it's nothing unusual for Japanese fans or players. They are simply doing what most people in Japan do — at home, at school, at work, or on streets from Tokyo to Osaka, Shizuoka to Sapporo. “For Japanese people, this is just the normal thing to do,” Japan coach Hajime Moriyasu said. “When you leave, you have to leave a place cleaner than it was before. That's the education we have been taught. That's the basic culture we have. For us, it's nothing special.” A spokeswoman for the Japanese Football Association said it's supplying 8,000 trash bags to help fans pick up after matches with “thank you” messages on the outside written in Arabic, Japanese and English. Barbara Holthus, a sociologist who has spent the last decade in Japan, said cleaning up after oneself is engrained in Japanese culture. “You're always supposed to take your trash home in Japan because there are no trash cans on the street," said Holthus, the deputy director of the German Institute for Japanese Studies. “You clean your classroom. From a very young age, you learn you are responsible for the cleanliness of your own space.” Many Japanese elementary schools don't have janitors, so some of the clean-up work is left to the young students. Office workers often dedicate an hour to spruce up their areas. “It's partly cultural, but also the education structures have been training you for a long time to do that," Holthus added.

Vancouver’s shot at hosting 2030 Winter Olympics dims

British Columbia's government will not support Vancouver's bid to hold the 2030 Olympics in the province, a move that places Salt Lake City closer to bringing the Games back to Utah. BC's minister of tourism, arts, culture and sports said that the cost of staging an Olympics was the main reason the government could not support the effort. “The current bid has an estimated cost of $1.2 billion and $1 billion in additional risk, and when we measured that against our government's priorities, we believe we need to focus on people,” Lisa Beare said. Canada's Olympic committee said it was “taking time to process” the B.C. announcement and is planning a news conference. If Vancouver bows out, it would leave Salt Lake City and Sapporo, Japan, as the two remaining candidates. Salt Lake City hosted the Olympics in 2002 and has said that with some of the infrastructure from those games still in play, it is ready to bring the games back. Though the Salt Lake City bid appeared more primed for 2034, officials there and at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee have consistently said they would be able to host in 2030 if called upon. A 2030 Games would create issues in the United States, as it would come less than two years after the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles and would force a reworking of many of the sponsorship arrangements in place for those games. Sapporo hosted the Winter Olympics in 1972 and was in the bidding process for 2026 until it dropped out. The IOC is expected to choose the host for 2030 next year.

In this episode Nicole and Sarah host Barbara Cochran, ski mom, Olympic gold medalist and sports psychology consultant. Barbara tells us about the incredible history behind her father Mickey's vision to build a ski hill behind their house in Richmond, Vermont in 1961.  Mickey built a tow rope and put up lights so all his kids and anyone else who wanted to (it was open to the public), could ski train after school and into the night.Barbara is one of four children, they all grew up to be world-class ski racers and represented the U.S. in the Winter Olympics. Barbara started racing in World Cup races when she was still in high school. She shares her Olympic story of winning the gold medal in slalom at the 1972 Winter Olympics in Sapporo, Japan. We loved hearing about what was going through Barbara's mind as she prepared herself to race, and how her father's words could calm her down and get her thinking positively (even at the Olympics!).  Barbara discovered the powers of positive self talk and having a growth mindset - long before it was a well-known practice. Barbara shares the Cochran's Way, a powerful and positive message for ski racers and parents pursuing this crazy sport. She tells us about the letter she wrote to her son Ryan Cochran-Siegle, before he headed to the Olympics.Barbara's words have inspired us to stay positive and keep the big picture in mind - the invaluable life lessons our kids learn from skiing. Resources:Barbara's Sports Psychology BusinessCochran's Ski Area Keep up with the Latest from Barbara & Cochrans:Barbara on Twitter: https://twitter.com/bacochrancoachFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/SportsSuccessCoachingCochran's Ski Area Instagram Cochran's Facebook Please Help Support our Podcast:Visit Mabels Labels to personalize your own labels!Use code SKIMOMS at checkout for 15% off your purchaseJoin the Ski Moms Fun Community!

Anchor Brewing historian Dave Burkhart and former Anchor brewing chief Mark Carpenter join Harry Duke and Herlinda Heras on Brew Ha Ha today. Mark Carpenter is the former co-host of this show who began working at Anchor in 1971. Author Dave Burkhart has been with Anchor Brewing Co. for thirty-one and a half years. Very early in his tenure began collecting historical documentation of the brewery. His book, The Anchor Brewing Story, has just been published. Mark and Dave agree that Anchor has a bright future since the new owners (Sapporo) are investing heavily in the company. Dave started at Anchor on a Monday and by the following Saturday, he started researching the company. In 2010, he took the title Anchor Historian. He describes finding out about the original owner Gottfried Breckle, who first went from Germany in 1852 to Valdivia, Chile. It was “the irresistible lure of gold” that brought him to California. Anchor's Early History A lot of this early family history is documented on this page of the Anchor Brewing website. Gottfried came to California in late 1953 or early 1854 and worked in the gold fields, then worked for a local brewery. He became an American citizen in 1854. He “did what everyone did in the gold rush, he reinvented himself.” Eventually he owned the Golden Gate Brewery in San Francisco, which burned down. He took the insurance money back to Germany and opened a brewery there. Then he came back to San Francisco and opened another brewery in the Russian Hill neighborhood. Then he sold it and invested in a saloon that they turned into brewery in 1871. That marks the beginning of the company that became Anchor in 1896. Russian River Brewing Co. is open in Santa Rosa on 4th St. and at their big Windsor location. Visit their website for up-to-date hours, menus, beers and more info. There were more than thirty breweries in San Francisco in the late 1800s and 847 drinking establishments in town, as well as many corner grocery stores in the city which also served beer in the back room. The Anchor Pub There is a pub now at Anchor Brewery that is a showcase for their panorama of beer recipes. One is Humming Ale, which uses Nelson hops. It's the same recipe as Liberty Ale except that uses Cascade hops. That was the first IPA in California, although they did not want to call it that. Fritz Maytag, who was Anchor's owner at the time of its late 1960s rebirth, wanted to make that type of beer that he remembered from his student days back east. It has a lot more hops than other beers at the time. Visit our sponsor Victory House online for their latest viewing and menu options. Anchor Steam Beer Steam Beer is called a California Common in the beer index books. There are several possible origins of the term Steam Beer. It is a California story and without Anchor there would be none of it. Lager beer needs cold conditions, so there was no ice in the city and they needed to make beer without it. They came up with the idea of a Cool Ship, a large shallow pan with a large surface area. It was exposed to the atmosphere, there were louvered windows in the room. The mean temperature was cooler then than now. When the warm wort was pumped up into the cool ship, the difference in temperature produced steam. Another theory holds that when they dropped the beer back to the floor below, they added yeast to it. Then they filled large wooden barrels with the beer. If a bartender opened a keg while the beer was still fermenting, tapping the keg would produce a spray that was similar to steam. Yet another idea is that bartenders would pour from different kegs of different ages. The newest beer was the foamiest. So there is some uncertainty about the term. Today is the forty-seventh anniversary of the first brewing of Anchor Christmas Ale. There is a different tree on the label every year. This year, it is a Blue Gum tree, also known as the Eucalyptus.

How does a pilot see the cities of the world? Unlike residents, who live there full-time, or tourists, who travel once and perhaps never again, pilots are brief, but regular visitors to the hubs of the world. In Imagine a City: A Pilot's Journey Across the Urban World (Chatto & Windus / Knopf: 2022), Mark Vanhoenacker helps to give us an answer. In his book, Mark charts his flights all over the world, to cities like Hong Kong, Jeddah, Rio, Cape Town, Sapporo, Delhi, and many more. But the book also regularly returns to his home town: Pittsfield, Mass., near the state border with New York. In this interview, Mark and I talk about his travels around the world, from the (relatively) small town of Pittsfield to the snowy streets of Sapporo. Mark Vanhoenacker is a commercial airline pilot and writer. The author of the international best seller Skyfaring: A Journey with a Pilot (Knopf: 2015) and How to Land a Plane (The Experiment: 2019), he is also a regular contributor to The New York Times and a columnist for the Financial Times. Born in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, he trained as a historian and worked in business before starting his flight training in Britain in 2001.
