Today we're joined by one of our greatest friends of the show in Sky Sports & Amazon Prime Broadcaster Simon Thomas for somewhat of a 'Dry January' special. Simon has recently passed his 1 year anniversary of being sober and in this deeply personal interview he takes us through the horrendous struggles and relationship he's had with alcohol over the years. After suddenly losing his wife, his life was flipped upside down and like so many in desperate situations, he took refuge in the bottle and this sparked a sudden downfall which almost led to his death on multiple occasions. He opens up about his inspiring journey over the last couple of years and gives advice to those who maybe struggling from similar issues. We also discuss the premature arrival of his daughter and the terrifying events surrounding that. However it's not all seriousness as Archie manages to inject a ridiculous amount of stupidity and laughter into the podcast as always. -------- BUY YOUR TICKETS FOR OUR LIVE PODCAST WITH SIMON SHAW ON 9th FEB https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/live-rig-biz-pod-networking-with-england-legend-simon-shaw-tickets-516148412797 DOWNLOAD ATHLO NOW! https://athlo.app/ The way you train and use your gym membership is about to change thanks to Athlo.

In episode #158 of Berkeley Talks, we revisit a lecture by Emiliana Simon-Thomas, science director of UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, in which she discusses happiness — what it means, where it comes from and how we can enhance it in our lives.“Where does happiness come from?” asks Simon-Thomas, who co-teaches the Science of Happiness, an online course that explores the roots of a happy and meaningful life. “Humans have been wondering this for centuries. Early thought and philosophy on happiness was that it was just luck. It was divine favor. It was in the stars whether or not you ended up a happy person or not.”The Greeks and Romans, she says, had the idea that happiness was tied to how virtuous a person was. In another stretch of history, people believed that happiness was about maximizing pleasure and avoiding pain. And then, finally, and perhaps the most recent thinking, she says, is that happiness comes from social connection, from feeling a sense of belonging and community.“There's some really compelling neuroscience studies that show that if we are isolated, this actually engages pathways and structures in our brain that signal vigilance to threat. So, being alone, being isolated, is actually not a safe state for the average human.”This lecture, given on July 28, 2021, was sponsored by Science at Cal.Read a transcript and listen to the episode on Berkeley News.Music by Blue Dot Sessions. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.
The first lesson I learned in The Greater Good Science Center's Science of Happiness course is that I had the wrong definition of happiness. Happiness isn't solely our positive states, we learn from Science Director Dr.Emiliana Simon-Thomas. It's feeling content within our whole human experience, which of course, includes emotions like grief and sadness. What's the most enduring way to cultivate it? Her research continually leads to the same destination: Connection. ‘We often measure life satisfaction by asking: Have I been successful enough? When the real question is: Who am I in relationship to other people?' We explore this question in our conversation; Examining it through the lens of meaning and belonging, compassion and forgiveness. The Science of Happiness course is free and an inspiring journey to embark on. Consider beginning with Dr.Simon-Thomas' episode and taking the class with a loved one.
London's Hippodrome casino is one of the most unique in the world. With a history dating back over a century, the Hippodrome was a theater for much of its existence, hosting such events as vaudeville shows, circuses, aquatic extravaganzas, nightclubs and more. When Simon Thomas and his father Jimmy, who recently passed away, took over the property in 2009, they embarked on a complete restoration project that transformed the property into what it is today: one of England's finest casinos. Simon Thomas sat down with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in October to talk about the past and the future of the Hippodrome.

Today's conversation is with Simon Thomas, former Blue Peter presenter, Sports broadcaster, and author. Expect to learn about the experiences that shaped Simon as a young man and the steps and years on career development that took place before his break on Blue Peter in 1998. This is a story of perseverance and belief, and within this I understand more about Simon's Christian faith and the role this played in his life. Simon's next step was into the world of sports broadcasting and led to his dream of presenting live Premier League Football. As part of this discussion, Simon opens up about the anxiety that started to cause him problems in his second season presenting the Premier League and what he now understands about himself and life to support him working in this high pressure environment in the future. During the peak of Simon's challenges with anxiety, his wife Gemma tragically passed away in autumn 2017 and he bravely shares this period of his life during our conversation. I have tremendous admiration for Simon and his ability to speak articulately about tragedy. Importantly, he discusses the acts of kindness, support and positive events that can come from our lowest moments and biggest heartbreaks.

In 2021, the British Library Women Writers Series published an edition of Dorothy Evelyn's Smith's quietly joyful and sometimes dark coming-of-age novel, O, the Brave Music. Joining us is the series consultant and author of the book's afterword, Dr. Simon Thomas. Sometimes compared to A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and I Capture the Castle, O, the Brave Music is set before the first world war and has a female narrator looking back on her childhood as a minister's daughter on England's moors.

This week's Pacey Performance Podcast guest is Simon Thomas. Simon spent five seasons as the Head of Physical Performance for the Crusaders in Super Rugby, and has now moved on to Major League Rugby side Austin Gilgronis in the United States. Following four titles in New Zealand with Crusaders, Simon decided to take on a new challenge in Texas, joining up with head coach Sam Harris whom he had previously worked with at Honda Heat in Japan. Simon is here to talk about the growth of Major League Rugby, the cultural differences between the sport in traditional rugby nations and the USA, and how there are 300 million rugby fans who just don't know it yet. In addition to life in Texas at a fledgling side, Simon also discusses how to set up a successful preseason training camp, including the values to establish, the key objectives, and reflection on the group and their achievements the previous year. One of these training camps proved controversial as the team trained with the US Navy SEALs – as observers on social media waded in with opinions on whether that style of training was appropriate. However, Simon here explains the background behind it all, including the planning and preparation that led to it happening. This background included the psychological element to the training camp, including how to get players into a routine of accountability, communication, and responding to effective leadership. Simon also talks about how to build trusting relationships between coaches and the team to allow this to happen, plus what the markers of a successful preseason can be. For all this, hit the play button now to get the real truth behind this viral story. This week's topics: The growth of Major League Rugby The origins of the Gilgronis name The cultural differences between coaching in New Zealand and Texas Developing a successful preseason camp How training with the Navy SEALs helped the Gilgronis during preseason How that SEALs training session became a social media sensation – and how it was misunderstood Why that training didn't reflect the preparation and planning behind it Getting players into a routine of accountability and communication The importance of building relationships with coaches and avoiding friction The markers of success for a preseason

Setting your breed objectives – Simon Thomas To set your breeding objectives ask yourself the following question and write down your answers:Question 1: Why breed sheep? Apart from the usual answers like “I enjoy the challenge” or “sheep chose me” you need some underpinning factors.My career as a former stock agent and being an experienced breeder has taught me that there are two key driving factors behind breeding livestock 'profit' and 'tradition'. The varying degrees of adopting these factors will influence and drive your program. This could be breeding heritage sheep to maintain a breed type and a stable population or breeding sheep to met market demands for example. Question 2: Where do you sit on this scale? Is the balance between the factors of profit and tradition right in your breeding operation currently? Question 3: What is your perfect description of the sheep you want to breed? My earliest memory of being at a sheep show was being in the viewing tiers at Royal Melbourne Show in the early 1980s watching my father show his Border Leicesters. The wonderful Mrs Peggy Sparrow often sat by my side to watch me. In between the completion of classes Mrs Sparrow would always strike up a conversation with us kids. These conversations normally would revolve around the results of the show floor, but every now and then Mrs Sparrow would give you a 'gem' piece of advice. This question comes from Mrs Sparrow, she went on to say “once you have your perfect description, write it down and then set a plan as to how you are going to achieve it and do it multiple times”. Why is this question so important? To write your own sheep description is a very personal thing, no two descriptions will be the same. Each breed has their own standard. These standards are what every breed association set out as the core traits that define their breed. To write down your description take this breed standard further so yours not only meets this standard but it also meets your personal view of the perfect sheep for your operation or market. Why you are breeding sheep in the first place will impact on the level of depth you delve into when writing your description. When writing a sheep description plan I use an analogy of choosing a vehicle. When buying a vehicle, that vehicle comes with standards features (these are your breeds core traits). You then have the ability to individualise the standard features to personalise that vehicle to you. For example maybe you would like leather interior, metallic paint (these are your personalised sheep traits). For example, the Southdown breed description states that the feet should be black, my breed description for this standards are feet must be black. Then there are the times where a feature of the breed may not be explicitly stated in a breed description but this could be of significant importance to you, for example nose colour, teat placement, temperament and performance traits like growth rate or fertility. Question 4: Do you assess and modify your description as required?It is never to early or late to record a sheep description. Whether you have been breeding sheep for generations or you are still deciding what your first breed of sheep may be, you should regularly assess and modify your description as required. Assess your sheep against your own statement. You may need to modify it and you may need to modify your breeding program to get there. Regularly read your associations breed standards, this can help you to clarify your standards. Associations standards do change so review them regularly. Today, we have the ability to obtain data and statistics that&

Welcome to Time To Talk. Passing. Fetishisation. Colourism. Mixed race identity. These are the topics I have the pleasure of speaking to my friend Natalie Morris about this week on the show. Her book, Mixed/Other: Explorations of Multiraciality In Modern Britain. The book comes at an essential time, especially in Black History Month where it can bring up very strong feelings of exclusion for mixed race black people when entering the conversation. Interestingly enough, out in cinemas this week is Passing - the new film written and directed by Rebecca Hall, starring Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson about African-Americans who had skin color light enough to be perceived as "white" - which is known as ‘Passing'. Gemma spoke to Rebecca Hall – who's own Grandfather ‘passed' as white - about the movie which is out in cinemas on October 27th and will be on Netflix on November 10th - and is based on the 1929 novel by Nella Larsen.

Jon talks with Simon Thomas, CEO of DOBI Real Estate about what does sales means today vs. what it meant 9 months ago. Simon Thomas grew up in the hospitality industry with his family owning banquet halls. He knew that eventually he wanted to get into the real estate industry, but on the commercial side. Simon's cousin was selling homes in Detroit and asked him to try residential for 90 days before he decided to go to the commercial real estate side. On Day 1, Simon sold a house and was hooked! After a year, Simon went off on his own and doubled his business year after year. In 2017, Simon started a team to help agents grow, learn, and leverage each other. After a year, the team decided to start their brokerage company: DOBI. By implementing tools and support that no other brokerage offers, their agents' businesses are growing!

Back in 2017 Simon Thomas was taking a break from his presenting role on Sky Sports, suffering anxiety and depression. It was during that time that his wife Gemma suddenly became unwell and died.

On this episode of the podcast, I talk with Ben Simon-Thomas, co-founder and CEO of W3LL or Well which is Connecting people With Effective, Evidence-Based Solutions That Improve Wellbeing. Early in his career, he worked in preventive medicine to try and change people's lifestyles so they can be more healthy. That inspired him to come back to healthcare and form W3ll. Ben's by nature an optimistic person and sometimes that can get him into trouble, especially when it comes to picking a co-founder. What he has learned about picking a co-founder is that you have to have the attitude that anything is possible while not dwelling on the past. It's also important to feel at ease with your potential co-founder, which has a lot to do with transparency of both actions and being honest that you won't have all the answers. It's the ability to hear options, good or bad, and then come together to solve the problem that's the hallmark of a good founder pairing. Ben has a Masters in Buddist Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies that is driving what he is doing at W3LL, which relates to Health, Happiness, and Holding Space. What that all boils down to is how our thoughts affect our wellbeing. We cover a lot of ground from 3D printing to mindfulness to a person's wellbeing. It's a fascinating conversation about how to be more healthy, happy, and hopeful. You will not want to miss this one if you want more wellbeing in your life. Now let's get better together. Actions to Try or Advice to Take Learn Something New Every day: the advantage of being an entrepreneur is that you actually have to learn new things daily or you'll soon fall behind. Founders Problems: Ben has had his fair share of founder problems -- like so many people. The two most common reasons startups fail: Run out of money + Founder problems. Transparency and collaboration (or lack of ego) are the two things Ben looks for in a co-founder. Theology vs Religious Studies: Theology is about how to apply religion whereas religious studies is more the history of religion. Health, Happiness, and Hold Space. The three things he wants to achieve at W3LL.
