Mountains without Borders: Discovering the Carpathians with Patrice Dabrowski

In this episode, Patrice Dabrowski takes us on a historical journey through the highly understudied Carpathian Mountains of Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine. Her brand new book details the many forces at play in the mountainous region over the years from 1860 to 1980 and shows how this area gradually went from terra incongita to tourist attraction. We hope you enjoy! ABOUT THE BOOK https://cornellpress-us.imgix.net/covers/9781501759673.jpg?auto=format&w=298&q=20&dpr=2 In The Carpathians, Patrice M. Dabrowski narrates how three highland ranges of the mountain system found in present-day Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine were discovered for a broader regional public. This is a story of how the Tatras, Eastern Carpathians, and Bieszczady Mountains went from being terra incognita to becoming the popular tourist destinations they are today. It is a story of the encounter of Polish and Ukrainian lowlanders with the wild, sublime highlands and with the indigenous highlanders--Górale, Hutsuls, Boikos, and Lemkos--and how these peoples were incorporated into a national narrative as the territories were transformed into a native/national landscape. The set of microhistories in this book occur from about 1860 to 1980, a time in which nations and states concerned themselves with the "frontier at the edge." Discoverers not only became enthralled with what were perceived as their own highlands but also availed themselves of the mountains as places to work out answers to the burning questions of the day. Each discovery led to a surge in mountain tourism and interest in the mountains and their indigenous highlanders. Although these mountains, essentially a continuation of the Alps, are Central and Eastern Europe's most prominent physical feature, politically they are peripheral. The Carpathians is the first book to deal with the northern slopes in such a way, showing how these discoveries had a direct impact on the various nation-building, state-building, and modernization projects. Dabrowski's history incorporates a unique blend of environmental history, borderlands studies, and the history of tourism and leisure.

Over-worked or over-entertained? Our humanity gives us the joint gifts of both activity and passivity. We act and we are acted upon. But how do we balance and mediate these states? How do we cultivate long practices and habits that help us to inhabit the space between activity and passivity, bringing them together in a beautiful agency?Poet and linguist Alysia Harris joins Matt Croasmun for a discussion of that space between active and passive in human life—bringing the concepts of wonder, awareness/attention, patient receptivity to the natural world and to God, bearing witness to the autonomy and action of the other, and how she cultivates and meditates on these things in her own life.Show NotesNorman Wirzba, This Sacred Life: Humanity's Place in a Wounded WorldActive life vs passive lifeIntermediate category between activity and passivity: attentive awarenessActive receptivity and bearing witnessHuman beings enacting and reactingWitness as perception and responseCarl Sagan, Robin Kimmerer, Timothy WilburnWonder as a mediating emotion between active and passive"I'm not the entire system."Granting autonomy to a natural systemMaking the right impact through granting the sovereignty of the otherAdam and Eve as gardeners—beauty vs productivityGenesis: "Avad and Shamar"—Till and Keep, Serve and ProtectRestrain, observe, attend, and magnify"Me and God"Capitalism, scarcity mentality, and "enough"Ping-ponging between over-worked and over-entertainment—deficient visions of activity and deficient visions of passivityMark 4: Parable of the Sower.

In this episode, George Miley begins his teaching by sharing the story of a town in Eastern Europe, and how its people rounded up their Jewish neighbors to deport them to the death camp at Auschwitz in 1942. 70-years later, the people and leaders of that same town (Dolny Kubin, Slovakia) came together again, this time to publicly acknowledge the wrongs of the past, to ask for forgiveness, and to honor Israel and the Jewish people.

We're back! Since we last released an episode, Mike Miranti has become MIKEY POMODORO. So, Tom decided to interview him about his transformation from "Front of house guy" to a budding restaurateur.  Plus we talk about the "10 New Rules of Dining Right Now".   ****************************** Transcript below: From the NotAFoodie studio which is not actually a studio it is a zoom meeting from I don't know where are you Mikey? In Hell's Kitchen, at our pop up kitchen space. So anyway, it is the NotAFoodie show. I am Tom and I am your co host along with Mike Miranti aka Mikey Pomodoro. Mikey Pomodoro. So I think, Mike, one of the things that I want to talk about about this episode I bet the focus of this episode I think, is the evolution of Mike Miranti. Front of House guy, podcast host extraordinaire, to Mikey Pomodoro restauranteur. Pop Up manager pop up restaurant or chef Chef Smorgasburg like we've got a lot to unpack there. But I think I think we should just get started with some food news first What do you think? Yeah, I meet you that that's the plan that's what we do. You're out of practice because you didn't do the Food News jingle. So what do you what do we have to talk about today? What do we got? Yeah, so pretty much if you've been if you're just coming out of the coma The first thing you needed to do is listen to the new nada foodie show there's been a worldwide pandemic since the end of 2019 what restaurants closed for a year then there was a vaccine where there is a vaccine and a lot of people have taken it but not everybody yet for some reason I thought to get a microchip I didn't know that there was a vaccine alright Because there's a vaccine restaurants are kind of back there's no more 50% seating there's no more outdoor only seating restaurants are back so restaurants are back but it's not the same as what it was pre COVID and food and wine put out a really like perfect Instagram post like a 10 slide post about the new rules of dining out Yeah this is awesome I came across this the other day and just to be clear you and I started talking about food news we started talking about just the shit that servers have to deal with like that they've had to deal with historically right like you go to a restaurant people see it people are entitled and you know that's not even talking about the people that don't tip but the people who you know as my my daughter would call them Karen's but like just people who are complaining who who have the sense of entitlement and it's gotten worse across the board for for everything right like people are understandably angry people are you know, frustrated with the world and things start to open up a little bit and they there's this trend I guess or this this immediate like you know urge to get back to Oh, everything should be perfect again, you know, when on the back end there's there's a lot of shit that's not perfect. We lost how many fallow hundreds of 1000s of people you know, died, that there's no so that means there's a labor shortage to there's a labor shortage are more people to go back to work? Yes. Which is a really like, cynical way of looking at it. But it's true. But also people are choosing not to people who might not feel comfortable going back to work in a restaurant where you're dealing with people with dealing with the public. You know, I know me personally like I've got kids at home who are not vaccinated yet I would probably feel uncomfortable if I had a job working in a restaurant like that. I had to go to a conference in Nashville, back in August, which is like the breakthrough COVID capital of the fucking world because it's just crazy, unmasked unvaccinated mass of people and I, I quarantined at home, before seeing my kids, like I can't imagine having to do that every single day and having to go to work and being treated like shit and, you know, by customers and everything like that. I think it's just, we're at a we're at a breaking point. So that led us you and I to talk about this post that came out from food and wine. It was an Instagram post and once you take us through it, yeah, so it's 10 words. Yeah, it's 10 rules. Number one, the customers not always right. Which is the truth. The customer Usually wrong. And also people hate asking servers questions when they go out, and then they don't have as good of the time. You and I are generally friends because you asked me things that Christos though. So like this is it's interesting because I, I've always struggled with, like, I'm not gonna complain about certain things, but I will talk to my servers and I'll talk to chefs and I'll ask for recommendations. And I'll, you know, at the other day, I had some really bad service at a place that I'm not going to blow up their spot and but I'll but I sent the manager a note, because I feel like they want they want to know, right? Like, I'm not asking for anything for free. I'm not demanding things. Like sometimes I'll tell if I had really bad service or like a bad dinner meal, I'll pay for it. And then after I paid for it, I'll bring the manager over. Oh, that's exactly what I did. I paid for it. Yeah. That's it, I paid for it. I and I, you know, and I said, Hey, I know that you're a new restaurant that's been around for only, you know, a few months, I know that you are beloved, you're developing a relationship or a reputation of being beloved in the community. And every experience I've had up until this point was good, but I just want to let you know that this is really screwed up what you did like this, this was a really bad day. And everybody has a bad day. So anyway, the customer is not always right. Yeah. What's the natural? Big 20% is minimum now? I agree with that. Yeah, I agree with them. I also like when I kit I tip 20% after tax, that's usually like 25% Yeah, I mean, yeah, I've always kept 20% after tax sometimes. I when when I first started going out, I was tipping like, 50%. I was just, I felt so grateful. I know, right? Well, I mean, it's not like I was going out to like, you know, a like, and well, let me just say, I'm not tipping 50% of the bill, if I'm going to a restaurant that I know is owned by some rich person. What about when you go to EMP for vegan? Yeah, no, not at all. So pay $350 I will not Don't they have no tipping and keep Danny Meyer of like the old anywhere. method for that. Anyway, number three. Number three, be clear about food allergies? Uh, yeah. But servers should always ask allergies too, because people are stupid. So you, if you ask them, they'll more they'll be more likely to tell you then if they just have it. Right? Well, and this all I think the ethos behind this is be clear, because restaurants have always had to work on razor thin margins. But like, you don't want to be sending things back. You don't want to be causing a problem when people are short staffed and barely getting by. Right. So be offended about some kitchen. Yeah, no, exactly. And so the next one is use your phone for memories, not calls. With your pictures. Yeah, take take pictures, put them on Instagram, take a phone call in the restaurant. I know. I could not believe that this was a new rule of dining. This is always my rule of dining my phone. I take a photo when things come out, but it goes into my pocket or it gets turned over upside down. If I'm ever on my phone. While eating dinner. You can come over and slap me. Yeah, if you're if someone calls you to pick up like, Hey, I'm out to dinner. I'll call you back. And that's it. Yeah, yeah. If I go to a table and they're on the phone, I just leave and then they'll get me when they're off when I'm when they're off the phone. Number five is saving that reservation. Oh my god, I this is something that I am always like, I think my wife gets annoyed with me. Because if I'm going to be 10 minutes late for a reservation, I will call the restaurant and let them know. I am I know I'm a little bit crazy with that. You can give a rest you could be 15 minutes late to a reservation. Yeah, I think that's the that that's the absolute most I think that's totally acceptable after that. It's really not fair. But I mean, obviously, restaurants close earlier now. So if they're closing 10, and you have a 945 reservation or 930 reservation, and you get there at 945 You better get your ordering quick because they're so close. But I think that the first sentence on this slide that food Why put out as restaurants simply can not sustain the financial losses of no shows, particularly right now. I mean, that's something to keep in mind when you make a reservation, especially at a place where you've got limited staff, you've got limited food that people have, you know that they've ordered that the restaurant has ordered to cook for you. Like that's all based on your reservation. So respect the reservation number six patients vacation patients. I agree with that. 100% I mean, I think my first dining experience my first indoor dining experience, Post getting vaccinated definitely took probably 15 to 20% longer than normal and I was fine with it. I am happy to be out I'm happy to be to be partaking in the economy I'm happy to have people cook for me and serve me. It is a privilege right to be able to go out and do this absolutely. Just I miss it so much. During quarantine I miss going out and like just having a meal night like dreaming about diner breakfast like the idea of someone just like making me eggs and toast in home fries and sausage. Yeah, I mean you know what i like? I love a dirty dark tight bar like yeah, that is that like when I say tight I mean like your shoulder to shoulder with people. Like when people ask me what I want to do after you know getting vaccinated I want to be in a tight bar with like, shoulder to shoulder people that screaming with some drunk next to me about whatever sports is on the TV. You know what I did? Like two three weeks ago. What I took I took over the jukebox and Billy markwest Oh Billy marks that is we could have a whole episode about billion marks. I can you know talk to you about the the sex worker friends that I made there even though they would they would be beginning their shift when I was finishing my shift. I was not a sex worker. I was working at a media company but I would come in at like seven or eight o'clock at night. There'd be the sex workers gearing up for the evening. What a great place that place. Anyway, never said when you when you play music, they talk to you about what you play. Oh, yeah, they're like big like music guy big like all these guys. So did you know for a while they were the only bar in New York that you're allowed to smoke in? Yeah, you told me that I didn't. told my friend that. Yeah, the police had no employees. They just had the two owners. It was Billy and mark. Number seven smaller menus on the order of the day. Totally fine. I feel like that was the trend. Pre COVID. Anyway, yeah. Yeah, I'm, I'm fine with that. I'm always like, Hey, man, give me one of everything on the menu. You know, don't come on. Anyway, sorry, I'm cutting you off my dad. Hey, don't weaponize your online review? Yes, uh, yeah, that's just called being a good human being. I know, I know, I and I also will go as I very rarely have left bad reviews online for restaurants. I, I followed a lot of food writers and food critics who just decided they're going to stop reviewing restaurants, like they'll go out and they'll highlight restaurants, but they're not going to if there isn't something negative to say they're probably not going to do it right now. Because we're in a place where these, you know, these these restaurants, these businesses are trying to survive and you know, do they need someone some idiot writing a one star Yelp review, like is not helpful. I mean, okay, well, one, remember in the beginning of the pandemic, the picture of the fajitas, and it was like, we've been waiting for 20 minutes, she can't eat her fajitas without cheese or something like that. Yeah, something stupid like that. That's how all those people come off as well. Like that's that's the problem with Yelp reviews is that like, you can't trust the person who's writing it to begin with. And if someone didn't get their, you know, their iced tea with enough ice cubes in it, they're going to leave a one star review on Yelp and that one star review is going to be into it's going to be put into the weighted average of the the overall review of the so I never trust any, any of that stuff. We got a one star review on seamless or grubhub. And it was like food was not good. Okay, that was it. Sorry. Alright, number nine. Prove your status. That means if you're asked to show proof of vaccine, do it don't give people a hard time for enforcing regulations. No matter how you feel about whether you should be vaccinated or not. It's the same as like being 18 and going into a bar and being like, why can't I drink? Why can I serve in the army but I can't drink it's not the market. It's not up to the bartender. Yep, it's not That's it. That's it. That's a cut it's it's it's that cut and dry. Number 10. Being kind, keep timeliness and or directness and kindness and communication. Top of Mind. I think the next sentence is recognize the humanity of every worker. That is something that was gone for a long time. Just because you're paying somebody to serve you a meal doesn't make you better than them doesn't mean that you get to not kinds to them. I mean that was always always my rule when I was looking for a partner in life is watch how they treated the waitstaff at a restaurant and if they didn't treat them with like the utmost kindness and respect then they weren't the person for me so anyway those are the 10 new rules as put out by food and wine magazine this week couple well like yesterday they put this out but yeah, I love that Yeah, shout out my friend chef marker CS for putting me on to a really good love marker See? Anyway on friend of the pod Mikey so Mikey pop I'm gonna call you Mikey from now on because it's Mikey pomodoro I never called you Mikey I use called you Mike. You know, I don't like Mikey right? But I can't gotta get used to it. It's a really good name. It's a really good name for the business. But when I introduce myself to be pious might Alright, well, we're transitioning you are no longer for this segment. At least. You are no longer Mike Moran D co host of the nada foodie show you Mikey pomodoro restaurant tour. And I want to hear your story Mikey. pomodoro. Talk about so. I really I find it fascinating. And I'll set you up pandemic hit you. We're not working in restaurants anymore. So you decided you can start making chicken parm kits that you're going to sell. You're going to make chicken farms and and little speakeasies, little pop ups, and sell them to your friends. And then that evolved? So take it from there. Yeah, so it was a couple of things to start to start like I was, I was so bored. I was going I was by myself. I watched all of Netflix. I listened to all of Spotify. I was going out of my fucking mind. I was cooking a lot. And my friend asked me if I would cook dinner for him and his pregnant wife to surprise them. For it was her birthday slash she was pregnant. So I I pay I charged him like 150 bucks with food and everything. And I went and I cooked for them. And that was like the first Mikey pomodoro thing. And then my other friends turned their backyard into the speakeasy bar and they wanted to get chefs. So I came and that's how the chicken parm sliders were born. And then I started selling the chicken parm sliders out of my apartment in Harlem to as a kid, and the chickenpox sliders are not just chicken parm like it's a ground chicken with proprietary blend of herbs and spices and deep fried and then you know layered on with the new middle parm farmed up. So it's not just Potato, potato so it is it is very it's very unique. It's not like you know, not your Italian deli chicken parmesan. I say when you're eating it, you know it's a chicken parm, but it's like no chicken parm we've ever had. All right, there you go. And those got they got rave reviews. You ended up going on to barstool and supply yes and chicken farm. I've done barstool twice. I just catered for them on 421 says like, Hey, guys, what's up? Yeah, pop up. And I did barstool breakfast last December. Nice night. So the morning show. So how did that transition from selling kits to putting together a few menu items and opening up a pop up, I needed to kind of put this into high gear I so pandemic kit, there was no vaccine. I knew restaurants or restaurants aren't going away. Like as nothing's ever actually going to kill restaurants. As a whole, there's always going to be some sort of rest there's always gonna be like a McDonald's or something. So I thought about one was quick service restaurants. I've always been really into them as a business concept. And there really isn't a space for Italian American fast casual, quick service restaurants, there's pizza, but there is no space for that. And then that was probably the vessel that post pandemic restaurants would do the best in because it's mainly food that's like made for travel. for delivery. It's not really like like people will go to Chipotle and like sit down but most people are going to pull their food back to the office. Right so so I wanted to put together a menu that would travel well and still be in that quick service space feel like it would serve as restaurant. So I wrack my brain a little bit I put together a nice menu. I called my friend Marco to come in and do this with me. Because I knew I couldn't do it by myself. You can't one person can't run a restaurant, right? That's impossible. And I don't have any money size like I can't like hire somebody. So I brought him on as my partner and we did the the metro taco pop ups and bar stills every Sunday. Yeah, so so you guys, and I, we might have talked about this on a previous episode, but we did. You basically took over one of your friends, Mexican restaurants. You took it up. You took it over for lunch service. All day, Sunday, all day Sunday. Every Sunday was Super Bowl Sunday where indoor seating wasn't allowed. The second Sunday was Valentine's Day where they just had brought back indoor seating at like 30% or whatever the capacity was. Then the last two Sundays we sold out. Nice, nice. Yeah, I mean, and that's where I got to experience that Mikey pomodoros Chicken sliders and a whole bunch of other stuff. Go through the menu real quick. Yeah, well, like I was gonna say go through the original menu and then how it's evolved. Okay, so the original menu was nine items. It was chicken parm, meatballs. Mmm, string beans, spaghetti. pomodoro. rigatoni. vaca. mozzerella, corrodes suply Mexican chocolate cannolis we added, and I feel like I'm missing one thing. Oh, chicken tutor band aid, which is a grilled chicken piccata sandwich. That's also like a bat that evolved at the next location. Because we're in the Indian restaurant. So we did in the tandoor oven, so is more like a Mediterranean. Slovakia most nice I that's. So that's something that also I've been fascinated with like your first pop up was in the Mexican kitchen. Your second pop up was in an Indian kitchen. No, we were the first pop up forgetting Mexican kitchen. The first pop up was in a gluten free kitchen. Oh wow. couldn't use the deep fryer. We had a big ass heavy bottom pot. We filled with oil and had a thermometer a candy thermometer in the oil to monitor the oil. Yeah, but you're frying for four people. I know. I say that. I mean, you've never been to Christmas Eve at my house. There are 4050 people it's like doing a you know dinner service. Yeah, that's legit. But so so the first one was gluten free. The second one was that's how the Mexican chocolate came in. And the third Yeah, I thought it would be like a cute thing to do like, chocolate cannoli. And they were fire. Nice and yeah. So now now that pop up the pop up was at an Indian restaurant in Manhattan and that ended at the beginning of September and now you're doing smorgasburg for those of you who don't know what smorgasburg is once you explain it, like okay, so smorgasburg is a free outdoor food vending Hall. It's on Saturdays it's at Marsha p Johnson State Park it's it's free to walk around it's not free to eat food but it's absolutely free to enter Yeah, um and there's dozens of vendors just like me all small businesses who are there selling their wares and all the food is pretty good I've had by now because I went once to just like hang out and talk to some people and try some food and then last weekend we get to all the food is very good it's nice being around a lot of people who are like putting everyone's putting out like a good product yeah it's always been a great little you know addition to that neighborhood and Williamsburg and I mean and they've also expanded they've got a business smorgasburg Park on Sundays was like there's also yeah there's there's one in LA though there's one CCD there a Yeah, they're all over it's a brand now. But um, I remember going in the early days when like, I would go to meatball shop and the orange cine brothers were there you know, brothers were never there. They want to talk. I know when I sat down with the two guys two owners of smorgasburg I was just like saying brands was like oh, yeah, like, like the araghchi brothers are super impressive. They're like we've never had them. Wow, like that. Yeah, well there that's a weird man. They're they're super impressive brand. They don't have a single brick and mortar location. Yeah, but they have like permanent locations. There'll be someone differences. Yeah. That's awesome, though. So So what's the menu like at smorgasburg? So we ran a four item menu we did on chicken sliders back to chicken parm sliders, mozzarella and Kuroda and suplee which are rolling style rice balls and mozzarella. crozes and deep fried grilled cheese. Um, and let me last week was a shit show. None of our equipment worked. We did. So we had the fissara Yeah, I saw I saw you do you know he did something about it or what I admire. We didn't have the propane tank or anything, right? So there's a propane guy there. He sold us the propane tank, he sold us the regulator. He sold us the hose. But the hose didn't have the piece to fit into the fryers regulator. It just fit into the actual fryer. And then the machine wasn't regulating the gas. So it turned on and like butane going and everything running great, but we get too hot. And that would turn itself off. Yeah. So it took us a while to figure out what was going on. And what we did was we were batch frying chicken and suply then the broiler that I bought. I just look I look like a nice broiler on Amazon. I good reviews and big and not particularly too expensive. And we get there we open it up. And it's a 220 watt European broiler. So we couldn't use that. So we didn't have like one of the it had like a European figure. Yeah. And Marco's mom and stepdad drove from Sunset Park. And they brought two little Breville toaster ovens. Oh man. So that's actually what we have to rock out with this weekend too. And then we'll have a new brother thing in by next the following weekend. Oh, wow. Yeah. Which is fine. It's okay. Is it Saturday and Sunday? Sunday's Prospect Park that's right so Saturday night doing that you're not doing that so you just do it Saturday so you got Yeah, the amount of work that you have to put in just to do you know one day Saturday it's a lot it's you're essentially opening a restaurant like it but um the guy next to us set up his entire booth by himself in like an hour and he had a bunch of stuff he's like yeah, it just took practice and I'm not between me and Mark I'm not too worried about us like getting it The hardest thing is when I have to parallel park a u haul that's the app some nice well that's the one of the perils of having to run a run a pop up stand or a restaurant in New York not the giant truck Yes. So what's next what's next with for Mikey pomodoro what like if I all of a sudden um, sell one of my NF T's and I've got you know $20 million and I'm going to give you you know half a million dollars or a million dollars what do you want we're gonna we're gonna open a place in the Lower East Side and brand it and do everything we need to do and get the first one going and then hopefully open multiple ones throughout the East damn East Coast into like the South they can help shape right right so what's your what's your Who's your like audience who's your anyone that likes food? But it sounds like with all the fried stuff I feel like you are the Lower East Side is perfect for you. I feel like you're not a late night when you're you know, but well one Yes, absolutely. Well, let me let me back up. There's there's stuff that isn't Friday we had I just meant what I meant by that went out and again, I'm backing up a little bit. The the stuff that from smorgasburg is Yeah, would be awesome. Drunk food, bar food, walking around food. smorgasburg stuff. We're not doing eggplant parm, because you I we don't want to carry like three types of bread. I don't want to carry like a semolina hero on top of everything else. And I don't want to do like an eggplant parm in a tray that you have to like, walk around. Yeah, go leave and sit down and get one. Like there's like, there's a guy who does Thai fried chicken inside of a pineapple. Yeah, like that's awesome. And it's like a whole like, wow, oh my god. And then there's like a Bart. There's one guy that does barbecue. And that's another train where you have to like go and sit down, but it's barbecue. Yeah, I don't think people want I want to try that. By the way. that's a that's a good American barbecue place. No, no, it's called bark barbecue. Yeah, I thought it was them. No. Okay. No. Um, and then like an eggplant parm, I don't know. I can't imagine that being a thing that like gets people to sit down. I'm cracking up because I don't know if you ever saw the movie, the jerk which I think is one of the funniest movies in the world. And when he Steve Martin is in it, and it's like a 70s movie and you know, he's tired. He's working at a carnival and he's like, Yeah we're right over there right next to the pizza in a cup guy and then they're like pizza in a cup because oh yeah that guy's good he put the other pizza in a cup guy out of business but yeah I know that mine yes yes so yeah it's I understand you need you need that walking around food you know yeah cool so that's why we're not going to ask them but we are going to do meatball which is ordered another soup kettle we're gonna do meatballs this weekend too nice. I mean who doesn't love a meatball especially on winter day like like a cold as the weather gets cooler you'll you'll sell more of those. That's awesome. So and so when I sell when so what we're gonna do is we're gonna mint one of these episodes as an audio NFT and our our listeners are going to be part owners of this NF T which we're going to then convert into an NF T of Mikey pomodoro and I'm half joking but now that I say 85 eath that's like oh 85 eath yeah oh my god that's like you know $150,000 so we're we're in cool well I mean so is it this is something like you're you're still a little bit involved in the New York you know you're working jobs to sort of keep things moving during the day Yeah, you got bills to pay but like this is what you want to do you want to open Mikey pomodoro you want open Yeah, I'm not I'm not doing this for fun. Yeah, I'm doing this because I believe in it and I really like I 20 at the point of 2021 January 1 2021. I was like, Okay, this year is not about making money. It's about proving the concept. And I went from in under a year selling chicken parm sliders I have my apartments being a smorgasburg vendor so that's awesome that's good. We haven't even talked about that people will not like your review but he came by I got people's Instagram shout out yeah of course. Well I mean so the like the meatballs actually that's what he had I think that the what that says about you is that you know peep people can feel your passion you know people can feel it they can when you're out there you're promoting it you're you're you know I could feel it on Twitter I haven't eaten chicky POM slider in in seven eight months eight months you know I haven't been to I couldn't go to the pop up in in Manhattan when you had it I just wasn't around the city those days but I'm excited to the town during lunch and I couldn't I didn't I don't live here I don't live here during the summertime you were only here during the summer that Yeah, no I know but um but I but I do like I do feel like I can feel your enthusiasm for everything and Pete wells when I when I read that you could tell that he that felt the enthusiasm to and so every everyone should go check out i mean it's it's it's just it's awesome what you've done everyone needs to go to smorgasburg and check it out to the booty and we're back. I don't know why is it and we're back where I'm where we don't go anywhere and it's just to the listener it's just a quick edit it's not like we have radio I know the old radio show and I called you Mikey you're not Mikey now now you're back to being Mike Moran D So Mike you've got a busy day ahead of you. Um, we were going to a welding store to find the part to put the hose into the regulator. Well as we always end our episodes, I know you've got a busy day so I want to end it wrap it up for like, What are you drinking? What are you going to have as a cocktail tonight to to celebrate your success and in finding the proper coupler for your propane tanks? So I think um, we used to say we're never going to repeat cocktails. Okay, we've got a whole bunch of new pandemic. Yes. Um, so I'm going to repeat a cocktail. Well, I mean, the theme of the pandemic is just repetition. So I'm fine with it. Good. So I'm gonna find a nice talented bartender to meet me in aviation. Oh, my favorite cocktail? Yeah, yeah, absolutely. gin, lemon marish you know, the core literal comme des violet. It is with with America. Good, nourishing, you're chairing it. It's so good. It's acidic. It's bright. It has all the complexities of gin. My absolute favorite things especially like when it's still really fucking hot out, and it shouldn't be like it's really good weather. Good CBH weather. What about you? I? Well, I am I discovered a cocktail. That or a variation on a cocktail last week. So last week. I decided we had a bunch of acorn squash that we got from our farm and I made a corn squash and yoky like fresh acorn squash and I saw that some duck eggs that I had from another farm. So like really fresh and yucky. And then we made a Brazil so it was a combination of like a fall meal. And then grilled pretzel like summertime. It was a pork line stuff with provolone and prosciutto and some spices and things like that. And while I was making all that stuff, I was like, you know, I want something that's sort of fall ish, but something that is also like a little summer ish. And I ended up with I wanted something that was a little bit more Amaro or Omari sort of flavor, Omari is yes, so I ended up with a with a Toronto so do you know what Toronto? Is this spelt like the city? Yes. And it is Oh, no, I don't know it's right. fernet Branca simple syrup and some bit Angostura bitters, right for net simple and historic so it's like a like a little elevated. Yes, it's like an old fashioned we put some fernet in it. But what I did was I instead of using simple syrup, I use a little bit of maple syrup because I thought that would go really well first of all with the squash Second of all, just with the Canadian theme of the drink, and but I wanted since it was it was hot out. I wanted a little bit of a little bit of spiciness to it. So I added some cayenne pepper in there. So it's cayenne pepper and maple maple syrup instead of simple syrup, right, and fernet Branca and because it's Toronto, but it was a little bit spicy. I couldn't decide whether I was going to call it the Drake or the hotline bling or something like that. But that's how the hotline bling that's that's my so that's my new cocktail for that and I'm going to make that tonight. How's the ghost pepper tequila? Honestly, I open it once like once every few months, I take a sip and my lips are burning. You know what I did though, this summer. I just I diluted it down quite a bit. And I made some like, which is more tequila well when I made cocktails, and I diluted it with more tequila when I made cocktails. Like I didn't dilute the actual bottle that you made for me. Yeah, but Oh man, I gotta tell you it is. It is. So for those of you who don't know Mike gave me a ghost pepper. Tequila like a bottle of tequila with a ghost pepper in it that and I left the ghost pepper only so I left the ghost pepper in there for one day and then I was like I tasted it. I was like oh my god, this is like undrinkable. It's so hot. But this is the time of year Maggie I am I am a Calabrian chili pepper Baron right now. And I ordered I ordered the wrong variety from my seed guy in Sicily. So I ordered the little they're tiny tiny little ones are called Satan's kiss peppers or devils kiss. Way too spicy. So what I'm doing is I'm drying them and I've been experimenting with them I made like a little bit of a chili paste a fermented chili paste with some basil and garlic. But with the majority of them I'm just drying them and grinding them so like I'll have this really good crushed red peppers. But my hands I forgot to wear gloves the other day and literally for like three days. I my hands if I go anywhere near my lips, or my tongue or my eyes like putting contact lenses in. I'm crying for a half hour. It's incredible. It's like It's like bear spray like you know the Bear Bear powered pepper spray. me Yeah. So anyway, um, so we're gonna keep trying to do more episodes not a foodie. Now that we both have semi regular schedules, we're gonna find time to do it. Yeah, we're gonna try to do them like once every couple weeks. Thanks for thanks for recording and thanks for listening, everybody and we'll we'll talk to you soon. See you soon.

Last week, Pope Francis visited Hungary and Slovakia—two countries with about 1,000 years of Christian history. But today, that history is being re-interpreted for political ends, as nationalist or populist leaders like Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban use Christian identity as an argument for keeping new migrants out. On this bonus episode of “Inside the Vatican,” Slovakian religion historian Agata Sustova Drelova joins host Colleen Dulle for a closer look at Pope Francis' interpretation of the countries' religious history, reframing it as a history of openness, stretching all the way back to Sts. Cyril and Methodius, who first evangelized the area in the ninth century. Agata and Colleen also discuss the pope's visit to Slovakia's largest Roma settlement and why Agata believes this papal visit was “a crash course in synodality.” Links from the show: Pope Francis wants a better future for Slovakia's Roma communities.

In a Q&A session with Jesuits in Slovakia, Pope Francis revealed that after his colon surgery this summer, some prelates wanted him to die. He also issued a thinly-veiled criticism of EWTN, saying the Catholic network's attacks on him are “the work of the devil.” America's Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell wrote about the pope's comments and reported that Pope Francis had previously confronted an EWTN reporter about the network's attacks on him. On this episode, Gerry joins host Colleen Dulle to discuss the pope's distinction between attacks on him and on his office, and between legitimate criticism and attacks. Gerry and Colleen also look into Pope Francis' comments that “some people wanted [him] to die” after his colon surgery and even held meetings to prepare for a conclave. With the pope facing resistance both in the Vatican and in the media, Gerry said, “I found it sad that the pope has to defend himself. EWTN is based in the United States, can not the [U.S.] Catholic bishops' conference defend the pope on this?” Links from the show: Gerard O'Connell | Pope Francis responds to attacks from EWTN, other church critics: ‘They are the work of the devil.'

In a meeting with Jesuits in Slovakia, Pope Francis said: “There is, for example, a large Catholic television channel that has no hesitation in continually speaking ill of the Pope….I personally deserve attacks and insults because I am a sinner, but the Church does not deserve them. They are the work of the devil.” Watch […] The post 754: Pope Francis Rebukes EWTN as Work of the Devil: What would Mother Angelica Say? [Podcast] appeared first on Taylor Marshall.

Craig Morris joins some members of The Talent Equation learning community 'The Conclave' and myself from his hotel room in Slovakia (where he is preparing for a world championships with his athletes) to share some reflections from his experiences at the recent Tokyo Olympic Games. It is an open and honest insight into the preparation for the games during the pandemic and the ways that he and the athletes were forced to adapt their training to address this...he also shares some of the experiences of the games themselves and what he took away from the experience.

Medicare for All
Are There “Multiple Pathways” to Universal Healthcare? Evidence from Europe

Medicare for All

Are the German and Dutch health insurance systems really private? What would it actually take to transition to a social insurance model? Once and for all, we debunk the myth that we can "build on the current public-private healthcare system" to achieve universal coverage.  Show Notes Ben and Stephanie discuss Healthcare-NOW's recently-completed comprehensive comparison of public healthcare systems in the European Union. Much to the chagrin of the establishment - Medicare for All is the campaign that won't die. First in 2016, back when Bernie Sanders dared to run on the policy, the media tried to cancel M4A “puppies and rainbows.” That did not work. This argument, beloved by wonks, pundits and moderates alike, claims that most EU countries achieve universal coverage without single payer. They accomplish this with competing private health insurance, along with tight regulation and government subsidies that make premiums affordable for everyone. Is this true? So now instead of arguing against M4A, they're saying that we don't have to “blow up” the whole healthcare system to get to universal healthcare, there are “other pathways” that look shockingly like the system we already have: one in which some people have really comprehensive private healthcare, some have an ACA plan with a $15k deductible, some have their healthcare plan as an employee of Hobby Lobby, some have Medicaid, Medicare, whatever. Nope. Depending on how you count them, there are between 30 and 35 countries in Europe.  27 of those countries have a fully public health insurance system. Either one single fund that's run by the national government (England, all of Scandinavia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, etc.) or there could be several administrators of the one public plan, like in France or Austria, where you've got one government-defined package that is delivered for historical reasons by 4 or 5 big quasi public insurance funds, depending on your occupation. They're noncompetitive, you don't choose which system you get in, etc. A sort of corollary to this is Canada. Because of the way the system was developed, it isn't actually one single national plan but are separate plans administered by the provinces. But we still call it single payer. 6 countries use a hybrid model, where “sickness funds” or quasi-public, third-party entities provide primary healthcare coverage. In this option, the government assumes the risk, the government pools healthcare taxes and premiums, profits are illegal, and the sickness funds are heavily regulated by a nationally-set benefits package.Only 1 country (Slovakia) runs on a for-profit, private insurer network. (And this is actually in violation of EU law).  As the movement for Medicare for All has heated up since 2017, and increasing pressure placed on Democrats to support it, centrist/corporate Dems have started fetishizing these 6 countries, portraying them as “the ACA on steroids” and potential models for achieving universal healthcare WITHOUT having to take on the health insurance industry. Even more troubling, almost every healthcare reporter at every major “liberal” newspaper, radio outlet, and major news blog, has taken the same position - and they've been pumping out extraordinarily inaccurate coverage. Respected healthcare journalists like Margot Sanger-Katz, Julie Rovner, Dylan Scott, and Paul Krugman have written multiple inaccurate articles mischaracterizing European healthcare as private, premium-based and universal healthcare system (while in fact they are publicly funded through taxes). Ben and Stephanie bust myths that are well-loved by moderate Democrats, who claim that Medicare for All is too politically difficult to pass, and we could arrive at our goal with Euro-style private system. These narratives tend to gloss over elements of European plans that are essentially like Medicare for all: Mostly or entirely publicly financedNo one profits off of health insuranc...

Victories at ITU Junior European Cup events in Brno, Tabor and Antalya were followed by a Senior ITU victory at Tartu. His first major success came at the 2015 European Championship where he picked up a bronze medal.   Kristian's Norwegian National titles came in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and now he was also showing off his talents on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. He notched three consecutive victories in Bahrain between 2017 and 2019, and in both the 2018 and 2019 renewals set new world records for the half-IRONMAN.   2019 was a highly successful campaign for the Norwegian as he was also crowned winner of the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final. He finished a highly creditable fourth meanwhile at the 70.3 World Championship in Nice, a race won by one of his training partners Gustav Iden.   Kristian is also an Olympian, having competed at the 2016 Rio Games where he finished in 13th place.  He won gold at the Tokyo 2021, won again in Edmonton and World Championship double August 21st.   Blummenfelt's sporting hero growing up was Alexander Dale Oen, a swimmer from his native Norway and a European champion in 2008.  Unsurprisingly for someone who has set those world records, Kristian's motto is “go big or go home”.   Kristian Blummenfelt (protriathletes.org)   Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

So powerful is his cycling ability and mentality, you feel as though he is on a mission to challenge anyone who thinks they can breakaway on the bike (from him) and win.   The result of that – for me at least, and it has been the case for some time now – is that the first major measure I look at during a race is not who is leading the swim, who is in the lead pack, is there a break etc. It's, “did you exit the swim ahead, or behind Kristian Blummenfelt?”   Ahead, and – if you have the legs to follow him – you gain access to the world's greatest domestique (!) to help overcome any swim deficit. If you are behind and you miss the Blu Train… expect a very difficult next 90 minutes.   And that, perhaps, is the primary reason why Great Britain's Alex Yee wasn't able to challenge for world championship gold on Saturday in Edmonton, despite producing the fastest run by a long way. Blummenfelt swam 18:36, Alex 18:53. Those 17 seconds would prove impossible to recover from.   Preview of the Showdown in St. George at IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships 303 is heading to St. George to bring you in-person coverage of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships. With no Kona this year, all eyes are on the desert of southwest Utah. With a hilly run course, fast bike and a predicted temperature near 100 degrees, the real sizzle isn't the rubber meeting the road, it's the clash of top triathletes on heels of the Collins Cup that has no doubt sparked some rivalries. In the women's field in particular, the match up of Daniela Ryf and Taylor Knibb seems most intriguing. At the Collins Cup they went head to head and Knibb had the biggest victory of the day of all athletes crushing Daniela by double digit minutes. But Daniela reportedly wasn't feeling her best and we all know of the four time IRONMAN World Champion capabilities. No doubt she is looking for some revenge. Obviously as the championship, the field is stacked. Maybe there is a chink in Ryf's armor? Maybe not, but Lucy Charles, Ellie Salthouse, Sky Moench, Paula Findlay and Jeanni Metzler, all with great races in Slovakia could be in the mix at the end. No doubt there are others like Holly Lawrence who crashed in the Collins Cup could fight for the podium.   The mens field offers similar drama with Sam Long, the top ranked American and one of the favorites will have stiff competition from Lionel Sanders, Gustav Iden and fellow Norwegian and Olympic Gold Medalist Kristian Blummenfelt. Last May, Long and Sanders battled shoulder to shoulder in St. George and the two have had some fun social media banter in the last 12 months. After the race in May, Long said he knew he could take advantage of the downhill with his long stride and he did so almost winning so it will be interesting to see what happens.   The Norwegians are going to be tough to beat. Both Iden and Blummenfelt have had fantastic seasons. Iden handedly won his race in Slovakia and Blummenfelt has focused on training for St. George since winning Olympic gold. With no Jan Frodeno, putting odds on this race is challenging. There are many podium worthy contenders like Chris Leiferman, Rudy Von Berg, Alistair Brownlee, Ben Kanute, Javier Gomez, Sam Appleton and maybe a dark horse to watch is Collin Chartier from Louisville, Colorado.   What's New in the 303:   Pro Race Insights from Jocelyn McCauley   https://303cycling.com/cyclists-4-community-raffling-off-new-cervelo-to-raise-money/   8 of Colorado's crazy tests on foot and bike: Jagged alpine to rowdy singletrack at night Here's a nod to some of the state's most infamous challenges spanning 100-plus miles:   Hardrock 100 Clearly, lockdowns of last year fueled ambitions. Example: François D'haene's record dash over the San Juan Mountains this summer. The French man became the first in the fearsome race's 28-year history to clock a time under 22 hours — stunning, considering the 100 miles and 33,000 feet of climbing in the jagged alpine around Silverton, Telluride and Ouray. Lottery-based entry, race is usually mid-July.   LEADVILLE 100 RACE Andy Fox of Evergreen, Colo. rides his bike near Twin Lakes during the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race Saturday, August 14, 2010 in Leadville, Colo.   Gazette file Leadville Trail 100 This is a classic in the ultra world. Where miners once flocked for gold, now runners and mountain bikers race to finish within demanding cutoffs (30 hours for runners, 12 for cyclists). It's a test of lung power, starting from North America's highest incorporated town near 10,200 feet and rising to Hope Pass above 12,600 feet. It's better known as Hopeless Pass. Lottery-based, races in late August.   Run Rabbit Run Are you a tortoise or a hare? That is the first question to ask when approaching this 100-mile sufferfest from Steamboat Springs. While gaining 20,000 feet of elevation, you'll be covering parts of the Continental Divide and the town's recognizable summits: Mount Werner and Emerald and Rabbit Ears mountains. Hares finish under 36 hours, tortoises under 30. Usually mid-September.   Flaming Foliage Relay This 165-mile overnighter showcases autumn's aspen glow where it is famously glorious, along Guanella, Georgia and Fremont passes. Running teams might struggle to admire the beauty. Their heads are down on the course between Idaho Springs and Buena Vista, crossing roads and trails amounting to about 17,000 vertical feet. Usually mid-September.   Triple Bypass In 1988, a group of cycling buddies thought it would be fun to ride from Evergreen to Vail. Ever since, that's been the idea of fun for riders traversing a trio of heart-pounding passes over 100-plus miles and 10,000-plus feet. An exclusive bunch has made it a “double triple” in recent years, pedaling back the way they came. Slated for late July/early August 2022.   Breck 100 Mountain bikers have come to know this, not the Leadville 100, as Colorado's ultimate endeavor on a saddle — a tantalizing route shaped like a clover leaf, crossing the Continental Divide three times. But the race has been on hold for two years; the pandemic again caused a cancellation this summer. And the past two plans were a condensed course, closer to 70 miles. Will the real Breck 100 return? “That's the million-dollar question,” says organizer Thane Wright. Previously mid to late July.   SBT GRVL Colorado's gravel revolution begins in Steamboat Springs, a cycling town proud of its crunchy backroads. This race has risen to prominence with a variety of endurance courses amid classic scenery. They have recently ranged from nearly 40 miles to more than 140 miles, with climbing between 2,000 and 9,400 feet. Slated for Aug. 22, 2022. Vapor Trail 125 Any ultra competitor knows about “sleep demons,” those hallucinations that manifest at night. That's when this whacky mountain bike foray begins, in the darkness of 10 p.m. It begins in Salida, where some of the whackiest riders reside, molded by the vaunted Monarch Crest. Vapor is reserved for the most skilled and wilderness prepared. One must negotiate technical singletrack by headlamp and sustain long climbs over 125 miles.

Has Pope Francis just thrown Joe Biden under the bus on abortion?

Say what you like about Pope Francis, but he's incapable of giving a boring in-flight interview. On Wednesday, coming back from Hungary and Slovakia, he was asked about the problem of pro-abortion Catholic politicians receiving Holy Communion. He immediately launched into a ferocious denunciation of abortion, describing it as homicide, saying there was no middle way and stating that support for abortion was grounds for 'excommunication'.  Francis then slightly qualified this by explaining that these 'excommunicated' Catholics needed to be lovingly shown the error of their ways, but it was hard to escape the obvious conclusion. The Pope regards the President as barred from Communion – which drives a horse and cart through the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy of Biden's own bishop, Cardinal Wilton Gregory of Washington.  In this week's Holy Smoke, Dr Ed Condon, canon lawyer and editor of the brilliant Catholic website The Pillar, offers us an admirably lucid 'explainer' on this complicated topic. His conclusion is basically the same as mine. Though Ed wouldn't put it this way, the Pope has just thrown the fanatically pro-choice President of the United States under the bus.

Fresh off the papal plane, Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell joins host Colleen Dulle to discuss Pope Francis' response to his question about the U.S. bishops' debate over denying communion to pro-choice politicians. “Every time the bishops have not dealt with a problem as pastors they have taken sides politically,” the pope told Gerry. “What must a pastor do? Be a pastor. Don't go condemning.” He added that he had never denied anyone communion. In the second half of the show, Gerry and Colleen recap the pope's packed visit to Hungary and Slovakia this week and give their takeaways. At the end of this episode, Gerry described Slovakian President Zuzana Caputova's emotional farewell to the pope. After our recording, local news outlets in Slovakia reported that the president's father had passed away a few hours before the pope's departure.

On "EWTN News Nightly" tonight: This afternoon Pope Francis returned to Rome from Slovakia. Rome Correspondent, Colm Flynn, joins to share what the Pope said at the press conference on today's papal flight. Meanwhile, the US Justice Department is going after the new pro-life law in Texas that bans abortions after a baby's heartbeat is detected. The DOJ asked a federal judge to issue a temporary restraining order to block the law from being enforced. And Republicans on the Armed Services Committee claim that General Mark Milley and the Biden administration are not being truthful, when they say all U.S. Commanders in Afghanistan agreed with the withdrawal timeline. Judicial Watch has obtained documents through a Freedom of Information Act request that reveals the FDA has been involved in research that utilizes "humanized mice." The FDA purchased aborted babies' heads, organs and other tissues, which scientists then implanted in mice to create humanized mice. Senior Attorney at Judicial Watch, Meredith DiLiberto, reacts to these findings. Finally this evening, Solidarity HealthShare is a health sharing ministry that aligns with Catholic beliefs and provides an alternative way to cover health care expenses.

In many ways she is the inspiration of the PTO's motto, “Dum Spiro Spero,” which means “Whilst I breathe, I hope.”   The many gutsy performances at the Collins Cup made this decision extremely difficult. From Team Internationals' Kyle Smith racing with one aerobar after crashing, to an unwell Daniela Ryf of Team Europe pushing herself on the run to earn three vital points, from the outstanding performance by American Chelsea Sodaro barely six months after the arrival of her baby Skye, to the mad sprint by Team Internationals' Jackson Laundry in the final two kilometres to win his match, the day was filled with grit and determination. But the performances of Sanders and Lawrence particularly captivated the fans and showcased the meaning of The Collins Cup.   Canadian Lionel Sanders, the spiritual leader of Team Internationals, arrived at the event having finished second at IRONMAN Copenhagen only six days before. However, nothing was going to stop him leaving his body and soul on the racecourse for the PTO's flagship event. Sanders not only competed on just six days rest from a full distance race, but he then rose from the pavement after a bike crash to win his match against Europe's Sebastian Kienle and USA's Andrew Starykowicz.   Simon Whitfield, Olympic Gold Medal winner and Team Internationals Captain, commented, “There is literally no way to describe Lionel Sanders. You can exhaust your Thesaurus with words like relentless, indomitable, unyielding, driven, inexorable, and never come close to describing what Lionel Sanders is or does. You can only conclude it is beyond the realm of human comprehension. In everything the man does he lives his mantra to have “NO LIMITS.” It was an honour to be his Captain and experience his passion and spirit.“   For the women, Europe's Holly Lawrence personifies the values of the Collins Cup. One of the marquee matches against fierce rival Ellie Salthouse from Team Internationals was turning out to be well and truly epic as the women battled side-by-side for every stroke of the swim, colliding numerous times as each refused to yield a centimetre. It was triathlon's equivalent of Ali v. Fraser fought in the waters of the Danube River. Lawrence led on the bike until disaster struck, and she crashed not far from T-2. Bloodied, she rose immediately to continue the fight, but her damaged bike took almost five minutes to repair as she waited helplessly. She watched both Salthouse and USA's Skye Moench pass her and saw her chance to win the match evaporate. Bike repaired but spirit unbroken, she rode into transition to a standing ovation. With no chance to win her match, she nonetheless persevered in the run and denied Team USA and Team International bonus points, thus helping Team Europe to victory.   Natascha Badmann, Team Europe Captain, noted, “Holly Lawrence's performance was an inspiration to our team. We had already lost points in Match No. 1 with the tremendous performance of USA's Taylor Knibb. If Holly was not able to continue, we would have lost an additional 1-1/2 points. With grit and determination, she battled back to deny both Team USA and Team Internationals 1-1/2 vital points. This did not go unnoticed by the fans and the rest of Team Europe, who were not prepared to see Holly's effort be in vain.”   Lawrence mentioned in her post-race interview that if it had been a normal championship race, she would not have continued after it took so long to mend her bike, but since she was racing for Team Europe, she was willing to sacrifice her personal goals for those of the team.   What's New in the 303: Sebastian's New Bike, Communities Uniting and More Contributors Than You Might Think Thank you for your trust. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your vulnerability and it was honor to ride with you last Friday. You thanked me so kindly and closed your text later that day by saying “God bless you and your family.” I do feel blessed. But what you don't know, what most don't know is the whole story, and I want to share with you my thoughts and feelings and how much the community made this possible.   Buff Classic adds Gravel Route, Still Openings for Sept 12th Ride. The Buff Classic has added the Dirty Epic which is a mixed surface course featuring some smooth asphalt, buff gravel, and some pretty epic Jeep road style descending. The ride starts up Boulder Canyon, which will be closed to cars, and turns up Magnolia Road around 4 miles up Boulder Canyon.  Magnolia is steep, averaging over 9% for the first 4+ miles, with some sections nearing 20%.  Whatever bike you are riding, be sure it has good climbing gears. Bikes that are 1x in the front will need a 40″ on the back.   303 and Channel 7   Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it!

Open your hearts and find your wild. I loved couchsurfing those days when I was traveling around Europe, seeing different kinds of lifestyles and being inspired by what I saw around me. I had been very interested in Slovakia because one of my good friends in Barcelona, Lenka, was from there. It was a strange thing for me actually that whenever I met new friends and made a connection, I fantasized about visiting their country soon. It didn't often take long to happen over the past few years and Slovakia was one such case. When I visit a new country, I often start with their big cities. The reason being that it is usually easier to travel inside the capital where the transportation is much more comprehensive. I arrived in Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia, in the evening and went to Berk's house. Before I arrived, I'd seen photos of Berk's place and it looked like a very trendy bar. I wondered what awaited me. Berk greeted me at the front door, and his place was in the basement of a modern service apartment, with a really dark passage down. Then I saw a very trendy bar-like space, with some bohemian decorations and some quirky and retro posters. Berk told me he was actually hired two years ago as a receptionist of this interesting hostel, and what I saw was actually the reception of the hostel. The owner decided to transform the building into a service apartment but Berk remained as one of the keepers of the building and has the basement as his living space. Berk seemed very outgoing. Immediately I met several friends of his and went to a gathering to play some instruments. This was my first introduction to a jam session, where you pick an instrument and just go along with what everyone was playing. People there played the guitar, ukulele, trembline, african drums, and hand pan. I picked up something that I didn't know the name for, just enjoying the music and playing with the beat. It was a really relaxing evening with this self-made concert! Afterwards we went for some vegan food together in a bar and it was really nice to feel like a local there. On the way home, Berk was sharing the stories behind why he had moved to Slovakia from Turkey and how hopeless he felt about the political, social and religious situation back in Turkey. Although it was a bit difficult for me to pitch in anything, it was very interesting for me to know how Berk felt about it. I'm usually quite indifferent towards politics and religion. Maybe it was because of where I was from, where everyone was really free to make their own choices and I felt grateful for that freedom. Stay tuned...there's much more to come! In the next episode I'll be sharing the story of meeting a new friend and reuniting with my couchsurfer in Bratislava, Slovakia.**参与我为期6个月的口语训练营参加每日的直播课程/旅行英语训练营/早起训练营,请到我的公众微信账号IFLYCLUB,回复:训练营,报名最新一期的训练营课程。****本系列会将中英的版本分开录制,想要进行更深入的英语听力学习或训练,可以听伴随在中文版本的下一集。得到本集节目的中英文文本,预定环欧火车旅行的资讯和

If you never go you'll never know. The original plan was interrupted and changed as a result of Palli's sudden visit. I dropped my plans to visit Berlin and some cities in Poland however it was well worth it. Even though he was no longer by my side, his kindness and sweetness would always stay in my heart. I was grateful to have met him on my journey.It was definitely nice to get together with Palli however saying goodbye to him left me feeling sad and emotionally drained. I asked Rikke, my friend in Copenhagen, if I could stay with her one more night to recover my energy. I asked to cook for her to thank her for her kindness the other day too. Rikke was so sweet and prepared chicken and vegetables for both of us and I cooked beef dumplings that evening. We also watched a documentary about Peru, where I had visited that May, and shared some wine together. My soul really needed this space and time to recharge and recover. As I grew as a traveler, I learned to be independent but also knew when to depend on others too. I decided to take a cheap flight to Budapest the next day, so I could skip a day on the train. My host in Budapest was very nice and offered to pick me up at the airport. Though he charged a small fee (25 euros), I thought it was pretty fair. The host, Peter, lived a semi-retired life by trading in the morning and doing airbnb business on the side. In his free time, he was interested in energy healing work, so he also offered Reiki and massage to his friends. He also ran a tour business, so I was happy to support and I bought a tour bus ticket and also a ticket to the famous hot spring from him. After all, he gave me a private bedroom to stay in his beautiful apartment in downtown Budapest. That was very generous and sweet, and he also cooked breakfast for me the next morning. Budapest was big and extremely beautiful. It was right to get the bus ticket because I could navigate around the city quickly. When I'm traveling, I usually don't really care too much about checking out the sights. I like to wander and absorb the energy of the city and love seeing where fate takes me. The food was also very inexpensive in Budapest and I especially enjoyed the pastries a lot. I had a huge sweet bread roll called trdelnik for 3 euros and a croissant with pistachio paste for 2.5 euros. Trdelnik is very popular in different countries in Central Europe and the warmth, sugar and flavour are perfect on a cold winter day. I didn't know if it was because I was alone or what, but time seemed really slow. I guess maybe I was still recovering after separating from Palli. In two days, I visited the most scenic spots in Budapest, went to the hill, went on a boat ride, and also visited the famous hot spring palace. Sometimes people say it must be lonely to travel by yourself, but for me, I quite enjoy my own company. I could still see my host and share food and chat in the evening so it was a good balance. Stay tuned...there's much more to come! In the next episode I'll be sharing interesting stories that occured in Bratislava, Slovakia.**参与我为期6个月的口语训练营参加每日的直播课程/旅行英语训练营/早起训练营,请到我的公众微信账号IFLYCLUB,回复:训练营,报名最新一期的训练营课程。****本系列会将中英的版本分开录制,想要进行更深入的英语听力学习或训练,可以听伴随在中文版本的下一集。得到本集节目的中英文文本,预定环欧火车旅行的资讯和网站,当时的照片和影片甚至路线图,请关注公众微信IFLYCLUB,回复文字“环欧火车22“

But the conversation is also re-assuring in terms of how most all of us can avoid these things and how rare it really is for someone like Tim O'Donnell to have experienced this.   Go here; https://www.tridocpodcast.com/episode/episode-73-bonus-episode-tim-odonnels-heart-attack-what-does-this-mean-for-the-rest-of-us   Dr. Sankoff is dedicated to helping triathletes (athletes) train healthy and his podcast features many great topics and guest dedicated to this mission.

Plaque — made of fat, calcium and other substances — can build up and narrow or close the arteries.   To detect this build-up, your physician may order cardiac calcium scoring — a test that is also known as coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring, a heart scan or calcium score.  This non-invasive CT scan (computed tomography) of the heart calculates your risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD) by measuring the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries.   Plaque or calcium build-up in the coronary arteries causes heart disease or can lead to a heart attack. The coronary calcium scan is a better predictor of coronary events than cholesterol screening or other risk factor assessments.   About Your CAC Score A calcium score (sometimes called an Agatston score) is calculated based on the amount of plaque observed in the CT scan. It may be converted to a percentile rank based on your age and gender. The results from your cardiac scoring will be sent to your doctor.  Mine was a score of 26 and the 4th percentile of my age peers.   Your likelihood of having heart disease or a heart attack correlates with your calcium scoring. The lower your calcium score and percentile rank, the less likely you are to have a cardiac event compared to other men or women your age.   Calcium Score Results The purpose of the test is to understand your risk of heart attack or disease, taking preventive or corrective measures based on the results.   If you have any plaque present (a score greater than 0), your doctor may make recommendations for lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating better and exercising more. The higher your score the more treatment your doctor may recommend.   If you have a high score, you can make an appointment with one of our coronary artery disease specialists.   Zero: No plaque. Your risk of heart attack is low.   1 - 10: Small amount of plaque. You have less than a 10 percent chance of having heart disease, and your risk of heart attack is low.   11-100: Some plaque. You have mild heart disease and a moderate chance of heart attack. Your doctor may recommend other treatment in addition to lifestyle changes.   101 - 400: Moderate amount of plaque. You have heart disease and plaque may be blocking an artery. Your chance of having a heart attack is moderate to high. Your health professional may want more tests and may start treatment.   Over 400: Large amount of plaque. You have more than a 90 percent chance that plaque is blocking one of your arteries. Your chance of heart attack is high. Your health professional will want more tests and will start treatment.     Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Yes we have Kona and the IRONMAN World Championships but that is about individuals, today was about the teams and the sport and profession of triathlon.   The Collins Cup was designed to mirror golf's popular Ryder Cup pitting three teams of 12 athletes (6 men, 6 women) against each other. One team from Europe, the United States and Internationals.   The goal, to make professional triathlon a better spectator sport thus attracting more money to make the profession more lucrative and sustainable.   Will it work? Did it work? It's too early to say but nobody predicted the wild popularity of the Super Bowl. Triathlon will never be that popular but lets see what happens.   The Professional Triathlon Organisation orchestrated this “made for TV event”. Viewers watched 12 matches with one competitor from each team racing. Each match started 10 minutes apart. The entire race lasted about 5 hours. Cameras were all over the course capturing the 36 athletes racing in their own three person race. It was fun to watch and the coverage was good as was the announcing. It was especially fun to have Tour de France commentator Phil Liggett behind the mic. His voice just adds a tone of familiarity and importance.   IRONMAN 70.3 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IRONMAN® 70.3® World Championship presented by the Utah Sports Commission. Among them will be over 100 of the world's top professional triathletes who will battle for a piece of the $350,000 USD total professional prize purse and the title of IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion.   Since the first IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship was held in 2006 the women's race has seen 10 different champions from five different countries. Swiss Daniela Ryf has won an event-best five times, and is coming off an undefeated season, including a win in St. George at the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship earlier this year. Together with Mirinda Carfrae (AUS) and Leanda Cave (GBR), Ryf also holds the distinction of having won both the IRONMAN World Championship® and the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship.   Aiming to dethrone Ryf will be a stellar group of professional female triathletes, including Lucy Charles-Barclay (GBR), who is coming off a recent win at 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 European Championship Elsinore. Charles-Barclay edged out Holly Lawrence (GBR) in that event, who as the 2016 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and multiple-time IRONMAN 70.3 winner will also be aiming for the top podium spot in St. George. Additional global competition will come from Paula Findlay (CAN), Taylor Knibb (USA), Kat Matthews (GBR), Skye Moench (USA), Emma Pallant-Browne (GBR), and Ellie Salthouse (AUS), each of whom continue to impress on the IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 circuits.   On the men's side, a star-studded field of professional talent will come together aiming to create history in St. George. With no clear frontrunner, a few of the dominant competitors that could take a shot for a podium spot include the defending IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion from 2019 in Nice, France, Gustav Iden (NOR); Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR), who has momentum coming into St. George following his recent Tokyo 2020 Olympic Triathlon win; and Lionel Sanders (CAN), who won the IRONMAN 70.3 North American Championship in St. George earlier this year and has over 20 IRONMAN 70.3 wins to his name. Also in contention are Alistair Brownlee (GBR), the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Triathlon Gold Medalist as well as Javier Gomez (ESP), the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Champion and 2018 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship third place podium finisher. Finally, American's Ben Kanute (USA) and Sam Long (USA) look to claim home nation victories. Kanute has multiple IRONMAN 70.3 wins and podium finishes in recent years and a second-place finish at the 2017 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship, the last time the event was held on US soil. Sam Long comes in on the top of his game having won the 2021 IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene triathlon and the 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 Boulder triathlon.     What's New in the 303: New Dura Ace? Gravel Rules   My Experience With TriDot What is TriDot?  It's a training platform, but its pretty sophisticated.  It takes your race goals, your training data, puts threshold test on your training calendar, takes those threshold test results and uses AI to automatically adjusts your training plan and workouts.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    TriDot also has an integrated App called RaceX.  Within RaceX, you can pick your "A" and "B" races (Ironman and Challenge branded).  You can browse race routes for any of the races in the database and look at the gps route, elevation and distance.  You can also see your Threshold Test history and drill into the details.  It tracks your Fitness, Stress and Readiness on a graph.    Within Diagnostics there's a feature called Phyiogenomics.  If you've used DNA-based ancestry services like Ancestry.com or 23 and Me, there is a downloadable text file that has your genome that can be used for things like nutrigenomics (using your DNA or genome data to understand if you have genetic markers for celiac disease or allergies), or pharma genomics (using genome data to treat/prevent disease. We have a mutual friend who learned she had DNA markers putting her at likely risk for breast cancer.    TriDot has a feature called PhysiogenomiX. It uses your DNA (genome data) to tailor the training plan and workouts to your genetic profile.   I uploaded my 23 and Me genome text file to TriDot.  Within a few seconds TriDot gave me an analysis that includes categorical summary and detailed results from specific genes related to physical training. These genes shown (and others) are used to enhance your training optimization.   The categories: Training Intensity Response is a relative measure of how you respond to high-intensity versus low-intensity training. Based on your genetic variations, you are predisposed to have a greater response to either high or low-intensity training. Aerobic Potential is a measure of your potential for developing a high aerobic capacity or high oxygen utilization (VO2max). This is not a measure of your current aerobic capacity. Rather, it is a measure of your aerobic trainability--your potential for improvement with proper training. Recovery Rate is a measure of your genetic ability to recover from exercise-induced oxidative stress and inflammation. This includes the level of stress and inflammation produced and the rate at which it is cleared. Injury Predisposition is a measure of how genetically prone you are to incurring soft tissue (tendon and ligament) injuries from training.   Lauren has also done it and we compared our results.  We took the very first category of Training Intensity Response.  At the top level we were both categorized as 40% responsive to Power vs 60% responsive to Endurance.  When you drill into the details, each Gene, the Result, Effect and a summary.   At the gene level we had about a half dozen genes that were different.  In the first gene, Lauren had a piece of DNA inserted and I had both of them deleted.   ACE: Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme I have both deleted (DD) so I tend to be respond better to power based training.  Lauren tends to respond well to a mixture of power and endurance. VEGFA: Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Tends to be highly responsive to endurance training with good muscle efficiency and VO2max. Tends to adjust well to altitude training. Var-allele carriers produce a greater amount of VEGF.             IMPORTANT TO KNOW BEFORE DIGGING INTO YOUR GENETICS Your genetic makeup is only part of the equation. Genetics alone is insufficient to predict or identify talent. Genetics can't (shouldn't) be used to set or change your goals; rather, to help you reach your goals most effectively.   Video of the Week: Team Europe Win First-Ever PTO Collins Cup | Race Reaction & Highlights       Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.  Please be sure to follow us @303endurance and of course go to iTunes and give us a rating and a comment.  We'd really appreciate it! Stay tuned, train informed, and enjoy the endurance journey!
