Episode 93: Someone in the world develops dementia every 3 seconds. There are over 55 million people worldwide living with dementia in 2020. This number will almost double every 20 years, reaching 78 million in 2030 and 139 million in 2050. These statistics from Alzheimer's Disease International are sobering, but few of us think much about how we can reduce our risk. A recent study shows that being socially active in mid to late life can cut the risk of dementia by as much as 30 to 50 percent. Hosts Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss what can be done with public policy and in our own lives to attempt to thwart this costly disease. Richard Kyte: Social connections could be key to defying dementia About the hosts: Scott Rada is social media manager with Lee Enterprises, and Richard Kyte is the director of the D.B.

„Nie chciałbym, aby Szymborska była postrzegana jako postać z pomników. Wolałby, by była widziana jako osoba, która była kiedyś dzieckiem, nieszczególnie grzecznym i posłusznym, ale piszącym wierszyki” - mówi Michał Rusinek, który właśnie oddał w ręce najmłodszych czytelników książkę „Szalik”, opowiadającą o Wisławie Szymborskiej. W kolejny odcinku podcastu „Półka z książkami” Anna Sobańda rozmawia z autorem między innymi o tym, czy poezja jest dla dzieci, czy są one bardziej wymagającymi czytelnikami niż dorośli oraz dlaczego bycie świadomym użytkownikiem języka czyni z nas mądrzejszych wyborców.

Kate Lawson, a former arts administrator and current arts enthusiast living in Minneapolis, is excited for Art-A-Whirl, the sprawling northeast Minneapolis open studio art tour that begins Friday. In particular, she wants to point people to Hossle Woodworks. Founder Justin Hossle creates mid-century modern furniture and home decor. “The clean lines and natural finishes of his pieces really let the beauty of the woods stand out,” she said. “And it's a really fun experience to get to see how the pieces are put together in his workshop.” Hossle Woodworks will offer demonstrations and classes throughout the weekend. Sarah McGrill is an art consultant and educator in Minneapolis. She is a fan of visual artist Tammy Ortegon, who she says “has been a force in south Minneapolis, as she's owned her own gallery for 20 years and realized that she had never had a solo exhibition.” To remedy this, Ortegon is offering a retrospective of her work in her own space, called the ColorWheel Gallery. The exhibit is called “30years Reflect Back/30years Inspired Forward,” and, according to McGrill, “it's just an experience to walk in and see the inspiration that she has in her shop to support local and regional artists.” The exhibit begins Saturday. Shannon Twohy is a curator and fiber artist from Minneapolis. She recommends “Living on the Edge,” presented by the North Shore Artists League. “As an artist myself, I think events that are pro-artists are so important,” she says. “I also love that the artwork and the exhibition are featuring the beauty of the North Shore.” The exhibition runs Friday through July 9 at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson, Wis.
Episode 90: If you aren't sure that nearly everything has become political, let's talk for a moment about our yards. It used to be that some homeowners paid great attention to having a perfectly manicured lawn, while others took a much more casual approach. But — pardon the pun — a growing trend across many cities is No Mow May, an initiative that encourages people to leave their lawns untouched so pollinators and other small critters can flourish. And those homeowners who have perfectly green and weed-free lawns now get the side-eye from many people who are worried about the environmental impact of perfectly manicured grass. Host Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss whether this new trend is helpful or simply another thing to pull people apart.

“Różnorodność jest wartością, a nie obciążeniem”, tak mówi Łukasz Maurycy Stanaszek, odkrywca Urzecza. Był to nieduży region oparty o Wisłę. Istniał przez kilkaset lat jako efekt zderzenia trzech odrębnych grup. Jedną z nich byli Olędrzy, potomkowie niderlandzkich osadników. Swoją pracą, nierozerwalnie związaną z Amazonką Mazowsza, doprowadzili do powstania wiślanego Eldorado. Dzisiaj Urzecze, które niemal zniknęło z ludzkiej pamięci, przeżywa odrodzenie, a jego mieszkańcy na nowo odnajdują swoje korzenie i szczególną tożsamość. (Początek rozmowy: 0'48")

Episode 87: Americans have a distinct set of values that differs from citizens of most if not all other countries. But for those of us who have lived here all of our lives, we probably don't think enough about those differences. The University of Portland put together a list it calls American Values and Assumptions. The information for the list was adapted from Gary Althen's book “American Ways: A Guide for Foreigners in the United States.” For today's show, we're going to take the list of seven values and see how they contribute — in both positive and negative ways — to the American experience.

Łucja, Zuzia i Tadeusz mieszkają w Warszawie. Postanowiliśmy więc razem omówić historię tego miasta. Będziemy mówić o tym skąd się wzięło to miasto i dlaczego stało się takie ważne. Zanim jednak przejdziemy do historii tego miasta to poznajmy legendę dotyczącą jego powstania.Jedna z legend mówi o rybaku, który miał na imię Wars i syrence, która miała na imię Sawa. W herbie Warszawy jest właśnie syrenka. Historycy jednak nie lubią legend i twierdzą, że nazwa pochodzi od imienia Warcisław. To imię znaczy “Wróci sława”. Początkowo to miasto nazywano Warszewa i Warszowa. Dopiero później nazwano Warszawa.Warszawa powstała po zachodniej czyli lewej stronie Wisły. Ale dlaczego? Prawa strona Wisły była niebezpieczna. Z tamtej strony na Warszawę mogli napaść Litwini. Było to jeszcze w czasach zanim Polska się połączyła z Litwą i Litwini często wtedy napadali na miasta w Polsce. Litwini mogli przyjść od wschodu czyli z prawej strony Wisły. Ponieważ jednak Warszawę zbudowano po lewej stronie tej rzeki, a w tamtych czasach nie było mostów, miasto było bezpieczne.Ale czemu Warszawę zbudowano nad Wisłą? Było tam dużo miejsca i była też woda. Ale co jeszcze dawała rzeka? W tamtych czasach lasy były bardzo gęste. Trudno było przez nie przejść. Najłatwiej i najszybciej było płynąć rzeką. Dzisiaj mamy drogi, a w tamtych czasach poruszano się po rzekach. Można powiedzieć, że wtedy rzeki to były autostrady.Czy pamiętacie kto doprowadził do rozbicia dzielnicowego? Kiedy skończył ten podział Polski? Czy jednak Łokietek połączył wszystkie kawałki? A jak się nazywa ta część Polski, gdzie leży Warszawa? Tak więc czy Warszawa powstała w Polsce? Kto rządził na Mazowszu?Rządzili tam książęta mazowieccy, z których wielu miało na imię Janusz. 26 lipca 1376 Janusz I dał Warszawie przywilej wybudowania łaźni miejskiej. W tamtych czasach ludzie nie mili łazienki w swoich domach i wszyscy chodzili do jednej łaźni. Nawet książę mazowiecki Janusz I nie miał łaźni. Ludzie, którzy tam przychodzili musieli płacić za wejście, ale książę Janusz mógł się kąpać raz w tygodniu za darmo. Ten sam książę, który pozwolił wybudować w Warszawie łaźnię zrobił coś jeszcze. Czym otoczona była Warszawa?Warszawa była otoczona murami i nie było miejsca aby wybudować nowe domy. Co więc postanowiono? Na północ od Warszawy wybudowano drugie miasto, które też otoczono murem. Czyli była jedna Warszawa, a zaraz obok niej zbudowano drugą Warszawę. Jak się je nazywa?Jak będziecie kiedyś zwiedzać Warszawę to z rynku Starego Miasta na rynek Nowego Miasta idzie się około 10 minut. Te dwa miasta, te dwie Warszawy były bardzo blisko siebie. Barbakan to stare mury, które właśnie oddzielały starą Warszawę od tej nowej. Jeżeli pójdziecie zwiedzać rynek Starego Miasta. To tam gdzie jest Syrenka. Stamtąd można pójść na rynek Nowego Miasta. To tam gdzie jest taka stara studnia. Po drodze z jednego rynku na drugi możecie zobaczyć stare mury czyli Barbakan.Stare i Nowe miasto czyli Stara i Nowa Warszawa powstały w czasach gdy Mazowsze nie należało do Polski. Był to osobny kraj, gdzie rządzili książęta mazowieccy. Rządził tam wtedy książę Janusz I Starszy, którego nazywa się Januszem warszawskim, bo on dał Starej Warszawie ten przywilej pozwalający otworzyć łaźnie i to też on pozwolił zbudować drugą Nową Warszawę.W 1374 urodziła się Jadwiga, późniejszy król Polski. W tym samym roku Janusz I został księciem warszawskim. Z tego powodu Janusza nazywa się też Januszem warszawskim.Jadwiga urodziła się w 1374. Gdy miała 10 lat została koronowana na króla Polski, a gdy miała 12 lat została żoną Jagiełły. W ten sposób Polska i Litwa niejako wzięły ślub. Polska i Litwa stały się jakby jednym krajem, ale pomiędzy nimi leżało Mazowsze, które było wtedy osobnym krajem.Książę mazowiecki czyli Janusz I Starszy nazywany też Januszem warszawskim był jednak przyjacielem Jagiełły i walczył razem z nim w bitwie pod Grunwaldem w 1410 roku.Co zrobił król Polski Zygmunt Stary? Gdy królem Polski był Zygmunt Stary na Mazowszu umarł ostatni książę Janusz III. Po jego śmierci Zygmunt Stary przyłączył Mazowsze do Polski.Niektórzy jednak myślą, że Polskę na nowo połączyły już wcześniej Władysław Łokietek. Łokietek połączył tylko kilka części Polski, głównie Małopolskę i Wielkopolskę. Było to 182 lata po rozbiciu Polski na części. Mazowsze zostało przyłączone jednak dopiero po 388 latach.Jakie zabytki na starym mieście? Zamek w Warszawie zbudował właśnie książę mazowiecki Janusz I Starszy. Jednak on był księciem i w jego czasach ten zamek nazywał się zamkiem książęcym. Dopiero jak przyłączono Mazowsze do Polski do tego zamku przybył król Zygmunt Stary i od tego momentu ten zamek nazywa się królewskim. Niedaleko zamku stoi kolumna króla Zygmunta III Wazy. Zygmunt I Stary przyłączył Mazowsze z Warszawą do Polski, a jego wnuk Zygmunt III Waza przeniósł stolicę z Krakowa do Warszawy.Kim był Zygmunt III Waza? Tata Zygmunta III Wazy był Szwedem, ale mama była Polską, była to córka Zygmunta I Starego - Katarzyna Jagiellonka. Zygmunt III Waza był królem Polski i Litwy, ale także Szwecji. Przeniósł stolicę do Warszawy, bo stamtąd miał bliżej do Szwecji.Chociaż Zygmunt III Waza i inni królowie po nim mieszkali w Warszawie, to koronacje odbywały się dalej w Krakowie. Ale co to jest koronacja? Warszawa była stolicą, ale królów koronowano w Krakowie i jak umarli to pochowano ich też w Krakowie.Kto jeszcze wtedy przyjeżdżał do Warszawy? Do Warszawy przyjeżdżali posłowie na sejm, ale co to jest sejm? A czy wy chcielibyście być posłami? Co robią posłowie w sejmie? Ale dlaczego sejm był w Warszawie. Dlaczego posłowie musieli przyjeżdżać do Warszawy? Mazowsze było pomiędzy Polską a Litwą. Gdy Zygmunt Stary przyłączył Mazowsze Warszawa znalazła się w środku. Było to najlepsze miejsce do spotkania dla Polaków i Litwinów. Dodatkowo Zygmuntowi III Wazie spalił się zamek w Krakowie i dlatego przeprowadził się do zamku w Warszawie.
Episode 86: In both sports and politics, we have winners and we have losers. What we don't always have are gracious winners and losers. There were two recent examples. There was much debate about the interaction between star basketball players Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark during the NCAA women's championship.

Episode 85: Last week, ProPublica reported that Justice Clarence Thomas has for more than two decades accepted luxury trips from Republican mega donor Harlan Crow. The day after the report, Thomas described Crow and his wife, Kathy, as "among our dearest friends," and said in a statement that he was advised by colleagues that "this sort of personal hospitality from close personal friends, who did not have business before the Court, was not reportable." Hosts Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss how this news further erodes the trust many Americans have with the highest levels of government and what steps can be taken to help solve this crisis of confidence.

According to a recent story by Collin Binkley of The Associated Press, undergraduate college enrollment dropped 8% from 2019 to 2022, with declines even after returning to in-person classes.

Episode 83: At its core, "woke" is a term that refers to being aware of social injustices and inequalities, particularly related to gender, race and ethnicity. The word originated in African American Vernacular English in the 1940s, but it gained renewed popularity in the 2010s as a term used to describe a heightened awareness and understanding of systemic racism and social justice issues. However, the term has also become a source of controversy and debate, with some criticizing it for being overused and losing its original meaning, while others embrace it as a powerful tool for promoting social change. Hosts Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss how this movement has affected society and how our focus on the culture wars often drowns out more important issues facing Americans.

And social responsibility is that engine for me, it gets me going. 14:58 - We have the benefit of having brought in a significant major player around early childhood education and understanding that 0-3, that birth-3 timeframe, is so important for our youth, especially with the folks who are marginalized and disenfranchised in our community.17:36 - If we're going to have a real impact in our communities, we need to start with policymakers.

Episode 82: It was at this time three years ago when all of us learned a lot more about pandemics. As the coronavirus surged across the world, many felt overwhelmed with the avalanche of information about the virus. Each day, news reports showed an escalation of cases and more deaths. We know a lot more about COVID today. And because of vaccines and previous infections, most people are much better protected. Although it can still be a deadly disease, it's no longer affecting how most of us live our lives. Richard Kyte and Scott Rada discuss the effectiveness of the messaging in the early days of the pandemic, why COVID further divided people and how leadership matters in times of a crisis.

Heartbeat: US Biathlon Podcast
The family-owned Wisconsin company Ariens is known worldwide as the King of Snow for its reliable, hard-working snow blowers. After an introduction to biathlon at Ruhpolding, President Dan Ariens was hooked! The U.S. Biathlon sponsor has gone all in on the sport, not only supporting the team but in building the new Ariens Nordic Center in its home of Brillion, Wis. Heartbeat is joined by Managing Director Monica Ariens and Nordic Center General Manager Sean Becker for an insightful look at the new facility in eastern Wisconsin.The Ariens Nordic Center is located adjacent to Round Lake Farms on 200 acres at the outskirts of Brillion. It includes a year-round trail network for recreation, training and competition for cross country skiing, biathlon, roller skiing, running, hiking, and more. The facility, which opened for the 2022-23 season, is open to the public and includes lighting, snowmaking, a paved roller-ski loop for off-season training, a pond for snowmaking and a 20-point biathlon range.The project was several years in the making under former U.S. Biathlon President Max Cobb, with trail design by John Morton. “I've designed 12 of these kinds of venues around the world,” said Morton, Owner, Morton Trails. “But I think this facility is going to have the most significant positive impact on the community and the region of any of the projects I've done.”The new Ariens Nordic Center has really caught the attention of U.S. Biathlon stars Deedra Irwin and Paul Schommer, both of whom grew up just a short distance away and have visited the facility for groundbreakings and grand openings.“It takes a lot of people to help build a dream like this,” said Irwin. “I hope to show people you can come from a small farm community in the middle of nowhere and you can make it onto the world stage and live your dreams as a professional athlete or whatever those dreams may be. This venue is going to be really amazing for the nordic teams from one hour, two hours, even three hours away. You'll see the U.S. Biathlon Team here a lot too. I'm excited to show our team where we came from. We'll show them our beautiful cows.”“To see the Ariens family producing and creating this type of venue that will not only introduce kids to the sports of biathlon and cross-country skiing but who will also have the opportunity to train here at a very high level, it's exciting," said Schommer. "I'm hopeful we're going to see more Olympians coming out of this part of the country.”Click for more information on the Ariens Nordic Center.

By Andy Schmidt Video of the Week - 2023 WTCS Abu Dhabi: Women's Highlights Endurance News: TAYLOR SPIVEY EARNS BRONZE MEDAL IN 2023 WTCS SEASON OPENER IN ABU DHABI Crossing the line in 58:27, the third-place finish granted Spivey her first WTCS podium since 2021 and fifth-career WTCS medal. ABU DHABI, UAE — Showcasing an impressive start of the season, U.S. Elite Triathlon National Team member Taylor Spivey (Redondo Beach, Calif.) earned the bronze medal in the opening race of the circuit at the 2023 World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi on Friday, March 3. Crossing the line in 58 minutes and 27 seconds, the third-place finish granted Spivey her first WTCS podium since 2021 and fifth-career WTCS medal. The top-three finish also offered sweet redemption for Spivey, after she just barely missed the podium last season with three fourth-place finishes and ultimately a fourth-place overall Series ranking. “To earn the bronze medal — pleased is an understatement. At one point in the race I was in fourth place and I thought ‘I can't let this happen again!' I am not the most confident athlete and racing is a way to build my confidence. And at the end of the day, I just executed every step of the race pretty perfectly and I finally came away with a step above fourth place, I am happy with it,” Spivey said of her result. Abu Dhabi opened the season as the first of seven total stops on the 2023 WTCS calendar, with athletes returning to the same host city that crowned the World Champions last November. Placing fifth in Abu Dhabi last fall, Spivey improved her position to third on a sprint-distance course (750-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike, 5k run). She finished just 31 seconds behind the victor, Beth Potter of Great Britain, who won in a time of 57:56, followed by British compatriot Sophie Coldwell with the silver (58:14). U.S. Elite Summer Rappaport (Thornton, Colo.) also had a standout season-starting result, placing fourth. After a dominating swim where was third out of the water, she crossed the finish line just 8 seconds behind Spivey to claim the fourth-place position with a time of 58:35. Fellow U.S. Elites, Kirsten Kasper (North Andover, Mass.) finished 25th with a time of 59:28, while Katie Zaferes (Cary, N.C.) clocked a time of 1:00:21 to finish 37th overall. This marked her first competition back to racing since 2021 and seven months after giving birth to her son last summer. Gina Sereno (Madison. Wis.), fresh off her win last week at the Arena Games Triathlon Series in Montreal, made her second-ever WTCS appearance, finishing 41st. On the men's side, Matt McElroy (Huntington Beach, Calif.) finished strong for the U.S. men, earning eighth place with a time of 53:19, his best WTCS result since 2019. 2023 World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi 750-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike, 5K run Elite Women's Podium - Complete Results 1.

The race will also contribute towards the Challenge Family World Bonus and results will count towards qualification for the Challenge Family The Championship. Below are details on the start times of the races, information on how to watch, and a preview of the elite men and women that are looking to kick their season off in style in the Sunshine State. We should stress though that the start lists are very much subject to change, with a number of big names – such as Vincent Luis, Joe Skipper and Jackie Hering – initially announced but now not taking part. And there looks to be bad news on the coverage front this year, with no live pictures but instead a post-race production… POPULAR STORIES RIGHT NOW IRONMAN New Zealand 2023 results: Phillips and Visser take titles Alistair Brownlee setback as he rules himself out of IRONMAN South Africa IRONMAN explain reasons for Justine Mathieux DQ in South Africa Start time and how to follow The elite race at CLASH Endurance Miami takes place on Friday March 10th, 2023. The start times are as follows: Elite Women – 0830 local time / 1330 UK / 1430 CET Elite Men – 1200 local time / 1700 UK / 1800 CET Past editions of the event have been streamed live – and for free – on the CLASH Endurance Facebook and YouTube channels. But this week the following message was posted about current plans: “If you know CLASH Endurance, you know we're always trying new things. There will be no live coverage, however a post-race show will be released after the event.” So if you haven't got it already, then adding the CLASH Endurance app to your phone / mobile device is recommended for racing splits and results. It's pretty much identical to the layout and structure of the IRONMAN app – which given that has proven itself over many years, is a good thing. Event history and course In 2021 the event was held under the ‘Challenge Miami' banner, prior the rebranding of the Challenge Family North American events to ‘CLASH'. In 2022, CLASH provided some of the most thrilling races on American soil, in both Miami and Daytona. Homestead Miami / Challenge Miami In Miami, the race venue is the Homestead Miami Speedway, a self-enclosed motor racing circuit event. As with the Daytona International Speedway, a very convenient lake sits nicely within the centre of the circuit, primed and ready for swimmers. Unlike the racing at Daytona however, CLASH Miami utilises the roads within the racing oval, and so is far more technical than the pure straight-line speed efforts that are the focus there. The event will be raced over the following distances: Swim: 1.7km / 1.05-mile (2 laps) Bike: 62.7km / 39-miles (17 laps of 2.2 miles + one part lap to start) Run: 16.9km / 10.5 miles (7 laps of 1.5 miles) Pro Women Last year, Ashleigh Gentle dominated, with the Australian winning by almost eight minutes in a performance that really set the tone for what was in store throughout the rest of the season for the PTO World #1. This year, however, looks set to be a much more competitive race, with the absence of the defending champion from the start list really opening up the competition to a whole host of contenders. Last season's runner up, Brazil's Pamela Oliveira, is an athlete who knows what it takes to get on the podium in Miami, but will face stiff competition if she has any hopes of going one better than last season. The 35-year-old, who won IRONMAN Brasil as well as Challenge Brazil in 2022, will rely heavily on her endurance in Miami, and will have to hope her strong swim-bike combination will be enough to keep her away from some of the lightning quick runners in the field. Sara Perez Sala (ESP) and Haley Chura (USA) are also likely to be to the fore from the outset. Perez Sala, who won the Challenge Championship in 2022, before also finishing second at CLASH Daytona behind Angelica Olmo, will be hoping to build an insurmountable lead over the swim and the bike this Friday, with athletes such as Chura and Sif Bendix Madsen (DEN) the likely candidates to contribute to an early break. Sara Perez Sala The Championship 2022 Sara Perez Sala – Photo Credit: Jose Luis Hourcade Last year, Sala crashed out of CLASH Miami, so will be hoping that her return this time round will not be brought to such an abrupt end. If her winter training has gone well, expect to see her at the front from the gun and pushing hard for the win throughout the closing stages. Lastly, Lucy Byram will be flying the flag for the UK, as the 23-year-old Brit looks to build on a 2022 that featured Challenge Wales and IRONMAN 70.3 Jesolo wins, plus runner up spots at IRONMAN 70.3 Vichy and Challenge Riccione, with a strong performance Stateside. Pro Men In the men's field, defending champion Sam Long will look to take down some big names from both the ITU scene and the long course world as he races for the first time under the guidance of new coach Dr Dan Plews. Sam Long (Photo credit: CLASH Endurance Miami) Sam Long (Photo credit: CLASH Endurance Miami) More stardust was sprinkled on the event at the start of this week when Canada's Lionel Sanders announced he was a surprise addition to the field. ‘No Limits' impressed pretty much everyone at the super-sprint distance of Arena Games Montreal recently, was second on his previous appearance here in 2021 behind Jan Frodeno) and will be locking horns with Long again after their epic battle at the Collins Cup last season. Jason West (USA), runner-up here last year, will look to challenge Long as will Tom Bishop (GBR), who was an excellent fourth at CLASH Daytona late last year. Joe Skipper had been scheduled to take part but the only British man to have outperformed him in Kona, David McNamee, will look to rediscover the form that saw him take back-to-back IMWC podiums in 2018 and 2019. In addition to McNamee and Bishop is fellow Brit Kieran Lindars, who won the European Long Distance Championships at Challenge Almere and finished a respectable 11th at CLASH Daytona. Finally, internationals Matthew Sharpe (CAN) and Samuel Appleton (AUS), who have both finished sixth at CLASH events in Florida in the past, could be the only athletes with the swim ability to match Luis, setting up a potential scenario where the Frenchman has some real bike power to work alongside out on the speedway.

By: A.V. Schmit 303 Endurance | Interior of Mips bike helmet Interior of a bike helmet with Mips® Technology. Photo: Courtesy of Mips. If you've been helmet shopping in the last few years, you have no doubt seen the little yellow circle that says, “Mips” on some of the helmets and boxes. What is Mips® and why should you care? MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) was developed in Sweden, Stockholm to be exact, by a neurosurgeon and an engineer. The technology represents the intersection of academic research and industrial engineering. The research, begun in 1995, was led by Hans von Holst of the Karolinska Institute, a practicing neurosurgeon, and Peter Halldin, an engineer with a background in aeronautics. Von Holst had witnessed the devastating aftermath of numerous Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) while performing brain surgeries on his patients. This inspired him to begin looking for ways to ameliorate these types of injuries. By examining the design of commercially available helmets, he was soon convinced that the currently crop of helmets were not providing sufficient protection against brain injuries. Especially those involving rotational forces or secondary impacts after an initial impact. He then contacted the KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) about initiating a research project focused on the prevention of head and neck injuries. That's when he was introduced to Halldin who was at the time a student at the institute. Halldin then commenced a PhD program studying biomechanics in order to investigate the problem and work on engineering a solution. Together they identified the way the dura membrane was critical to the brain's ability to slide within the skull in order to prevent concussions. They hypothesized, if a low-friction area could be created between the head and the helmet, rotational force, especially from an oblique (or angular) impact like that of a cyclist falling off a bicycle, could be reduced. They enlisted the help of Nigel Mills, who had access to the types of testing equipment they would need to prove their theory was correct. During the same time period, Svein Kleiven also a PhD student at the institute, had begun work on developing an FE (Finite Element) model of the human brain. It has since been recognized as the highest fidelity computer / mathematical model of the human brain ever created. This model proved to be a key research / simulation tool for Mips®, as it made it possible to visualize and measure the effects of Mips® safety system in a variety of collisions. Human cadavers and, in some cases, living subjects would have been used for this type of analysis, but because of ethical reasons, availability and variability in experimental results, the FE computer model is infinitely preferable. Researchers and product testers can run an infinite number of simulated crash experiments without cracking any skulls. Now I know what you are thinking, “What about all those out-of-work crash test dummies?” Fret not, the FE model Kleiven developed is only for the brain, it will be some time before a complete FE model of the whole human body will be available. And Mips® and the bike helmet manufacturers still use synthetic human heads in testing. The results of their research, a 50% reduction in rotational forces as a result of a crash. This led them to publish their results in 2001 and apply for a patent in 2002 which was granted in 2003. This led to the formation of Mipscorp, the company responsible for bringing Mips® technology to market through its brand partners. Mips has become bicycle industry's defacto answer to mitigating rotational forces on the brain in the event of a crash. When a cyclist falls, their head often impacts a solid surface at an angle. This angular impact creates a rotation in the brain, which has been proven to have significant potential to cause concussions and TBI's. Scott Sports was the first helmet manufacturer to integrate Mips® into their ARX helmet design, with other manufactures soon to follow. Now, Giro, Bell, Scott, POC and other bicycle industry leaders have integrated Mips® into their helmet designs. As of 2016, more than 28 helmet manufacturers had integrated Mips® into their product lines, with a corresponding number of 1.7 million units featuring the revolutionary technology. Well, there you have it… If a Mips® technology helmet can offer as much as a 50 percent reduction in rotational forces on your brain in a crash. Maybe we should all care what kind of helmet we wear.

A member of the Patriot League, Navy will begin competing in fall 2023 and be coached by Billy Edwards. “As an NCAA nationally emerging sport for women, triathlon defines exactly who we are at the Naval Academy and the type of opportunity we should offer to our midshipmen,” said Naval Academy Director of Athletics Chet Gladchuk. “The broad-based requirements through highly competitive swimming, running and cycling highlight the demanding physical characteristics that correlate with personal confidence and leadership development.” “The addition of women's triathlon at the U.S. Naval Academy represents a major milestone in the women's collegiate triathlon movement,” said Victoria Brumfield, USA Triathlon CEO. “One of the storied U.S. military academies, the U.S. Naval Academy prepares our future leaders and for years has had a thriving club triathlon team. We are thrilled to now see increased competitive opportunities for Navy's student-athletes at the DI level. More opportunities will help drive collegiate triathlon competition to the highest level.” Edwards currently leads the Naval Academy's club triathlon team, one of the strongest teams in the nation. The Naval Academy's club triathlon team won the overall team title at the 2018 USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championships. Will CU or Army be next? The commitment by the Naval Academy continues the momentum women's collegiate triathlon has gathered toward becoming an NCAA Championship sport. With more than 40 schools now offering women's collegiate triathlon, the NCAA Emerging Sport for Women has met the 10-year window to demonstrate sustainability and success at the NCAA varsity level. Now, women's triathlon has a few more steps to take on its way to being fully managed by the NCAA as a championship event, including committee, council, divisional and budget approvals. Women's triathlon is a fall sport, and the varsity season includes two National Qualifiers followed by the Women's Collegiate Triathlon National Championships held in November. The draft-legal races are sprint-distance, featuring a 750-meter open-water swim, draft-legal 20-kilometer bike and 5-kilometer run. In the draft-legal format, athletes work together in packs on the bike and make multiple loops on a closed course. The exciting, spectator-friendly draft-legal format is the same format contested in the triathlon competition at the Olympic Games and on the World Triathlon Championship Series circuit.

Past participants, on average, have seen these huge improvements in pace: What's New in the 303: Chris McGee's New Role with Bicycle Colorado Overseeing Bike Racing By Bill Plock March 2, 2023–Change is not always easy and often comes with challenges and opportunities. When Bicycle Colorado acquired Colorado Cycling (a.k.a BRAC) it was with clear knowledge they would be inheriting many challenges along with the complexities of organizing a race schedule and managing a membership that is probably a bit confused with all the changes. They also took on a long history of bike racing and the ups and downs of the local overseeing racing association and some challenging times over the years with USA Cycling and its multitude of leadership changes and focuses. But there is equally as much optimism. With a rising tide mentality, they are hopeful that with a larger audience, a renewed focus, and a strengthening relationship with USA Cycling that more riders might be attracted to not only race but to participate in all cycling events. They knew they needed to hire someone to oversee all of this and meld it into the bigger mission of Bicycle Colorado. And so they hired Chris McGee, a long-time race organizer and one-time Executive Director of BRAC to take on this important stewardship. Chris McGee with Bicycle Colorado Vintage Chris McGee When asked about his vision, he said, “ I look at the big picture and my role is events and finding ways to work together to help overcome common challenges. The kindred spirit of what we have as a cycling community is so important to foster. It makes the experience better for everyone riding bikes in Colorado.” When asked about road bike racing in particular, Chris said “There is definitely a decline in road racing and those events, but at the same time if you look at what's going on in Colorado and look at Bicycle Colorado's calendar and see all the events in Colorado, and knowing how big some of those events are and how they attract cyclists from all over the country, I'm really excited! If you look at events like the Triple Bypass, Ride the Rockies, Ironhorse Classic, the High School Cycling League, Collegiate Nationals, and big mountain bike events, there is a lot of reason for optimism for overall cycling—we are pretty lucky here! But the number one thing to know, BRAC as an entity for building the race calendar, assigning officials, and helping race directors is still intact and we dropped it into Bicycle Colorado. Yvonne van Gent, who has been a pillar at BRAC for many many years is still doing what she has always done.” But changes in racing are happening. In a nutshell, one of the biggest changes already is the paired membership model with USA Cycling. Says Chris, “one thing I am really proud of is our deepening partnership with USA Cycling. Racers need to only buy a USAC license to race in Colorado this year. No longer do they need a BRAC license. When they sign up for a USAC license they will automatically be registered as Bicycle Colorado race members. Registration will be much quicker and easier for racers and for event managers. Soon we will have a new website dedicated to racing with many of the features of the old BRAC site but also with many upgrades and of course all the history.” Lance Panigutti, the owner of Without Limits who put on road races, cyclocross races, and triathlons, said this about the changes so far, “It mirrors other endurance sports like triathlon that have seen a grassroots resurgence these past several years. What I'm hopeful for and would like to see is for Bicycle Colorado to focus on marketing the cycling race community as welcoming and inviting, not as an intimidating elite sport. Race scenes like cyclocross are the perfect environment for races to fall in love with competitive racing, and then moving to the road scene is a natural migration. But let's take a look at why Bicycle Colorado took this on and how in the long run it hopes to help not only races but all cycling events. Bike racing, at its heart, is a grassroots sport. Bicycle Colorado took on organizing the sport as part of its mission to improve the cycling experience for all. Including racers. Take a look at the bike calendar. It's packed. It's an elusive creature to have one, up-to-date calendar presenting all the possible events and races available to cyclists. Said Chris McGee, “it starts with a comprehensive event calendar so people can find events, and plan for events but also so we can help manage the impact these events will have on the community. Our goal with acquiring BRAC (Colorado Cycling) is to bring bike racing more into the mainstream of cycling and help improve the experience not only for racers but also for clubs and for the communities hosting these races. We also want to help attract more people to race and to be a stronger partner with USA Cycling to encourage the growth nationally and provide a stronger conduit of youth racers to grow the sport.” Bike racing is a very niche sport. Riding a bike however is one of the most popular activities in the world. Some studies show riding a bike is the most popular activity in the United States. But based on a few google searches, and depending on how you define “activity”, it may not be the top activity, but it's at least in the top five. Running, fishing, and hiking all seem to be higher in ranking. So how many people actually are considered cyclists? Does it matter? Well, it certainly does to Bicycle Colorado which advocates for all cyclists, including bike racers and those that just want a safe route to ride for fun or commute. Their website states, “Bicycle Colorado is a nonprofit advocacy organization championing the interests of all bicycle riders statewide. We envision a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone, where bicycling is the top choice for recreation and everyday trips, and where the benefits of bicycling are experienced and valued by all people in our state.” Obviously, this would include racing. But for years, bike racing was a kind of satellite revolving around “biking” left mostly alone to advocate for itself and fend off trends and market forces that in the case of road cycling, have left that discipline battered and isolated, some might say unapproachable, complex and even elitist in nature. For decades racing a bike, as an adult in Colorado has been sanctioned by different governing bodies and most recently was overseen by the Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC) which changed its name in 2020 to Colorado Cycling but was essentially the same organization. But thanks to an aging, expensive website, COVID, and some would argue a wavering philosophy on their role in the sport, BRAC was at crossroads about its future or even if it had a future. Something needed to change for the good of cyclists and the sport—it fit Bicycle Colorado's mission to step in. Bike racing, in particular, road racing has been on the decline for years. There are too many reasons and speculations to take a deep dive here as to why, but one thing is for sure, bike racing is complex. It involves getting a license, closing roads, finding, coordinating, and paying referees. Most people who race are on a team. People are categorized and race against others of similar ability. There are points and team competitions and on and on. It's simply not the most approachable sport for someone not familiar with how to do it. Sure you can just show up and race (after getting the licenses) and not care about the rest, but to fully engage takes effort. But as participants age, or drop out of the sport, refilling the road peloton so to speak isn't keeping pace with those leaving. Unlike triathlon, where for the most part, people are sort of racing themselves and do it for the challenge of finishing. Obviously, people race to win in triathlon as well, but in general it's a participation sport and all one needs is USAT license (can be a one day license) and show up and race. Triathlon comes with its own barriers of entry such as the cost and the intimidation of maybe doing a sport, like swimming, that is not comfortable but is very approachable for the most part. Those in the bike racing governing bodies have been talking for years about how to make it more inviting, to attract new people, and to make it more accepted in the community. To make it more sustainable and with a brighter future. To grow the sport. To make it simpler and broaden the appeal to the biggest audience possible. Let's hope and help Bicycle Colorado navigate the future and achieve those goals. Video of the Week: Super League Arena Games: Full Heat 2 Semifinals Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.

Episode 79: Artificial intelligence has been one of the most talked about topics so far this year — and with good reason. In just the past two months, there has been a flood of news stories talking about the amazing possibilities of this new technology, along with plenty of worries about what this all could mean. ChatGPT is at the center of this debate. This software, which was launched in November, is a natural language processing tool that can answer questions, write essays or even construct computer code. AI has raised plenty of questions about ethics, and it seemed like an overwhelming topic for this podcast. So we deiced to ask ChatGPT this question: "I am looking for topics for an upcoming podcast about ethics and AI. What topics should I cover?" In seconds it provided a list of topics.
