How 2 Skiers Conquered Yosemite's Half Dome

"Valley, 8800 FT. Above Sea level is a rock formation called Half Dome in the 19th century, a report said. The granite landmark was so perilous that it quote Never will be trodden by human foot. Well, today, Half dome is a popular hike for thrill seeking climbers. Yosemite resident Jason Tor Llano has always looked at the massive rock with a feeling of wonder. I went to school, right New 70 Valley next to you, Somebody falls. Um and you look up you somebody from the playground is a little kid. That's where the big thunderstorms come from. And when it snows, it just gets packed with snow and And it's just always been attracted to have them. But Torre Llanos attraction to half Dome has always been tied to another interest of his skiing since the very first time he clicked into skis. From that moment on, I just looked around and Kept seeing shoots our ski able to this age. When he was 17 Tor Lana went climbing with a friend on half dome. Remember walking down the cable's going? Wow, I bet you this thing's cable, and it turns out he was right this year, Jason to Orlando and his friends act, Milligan finally descended. Half dome on skis mean climbing half dome is dangerous enough descending on skis. It's a slab of no anchors. So avalanches occur all the time off that. And if you fall or get caught in an avalanche, you're gonna fall off the South face 1000 ft Cliff, so they scouted the location a day early. We walked up there the day before, and we slept at the base in a tree. Well, we start a little fire and kept warm for a few hours. So we're so cold at three in the morning. We're like okay with mice will go to the top. We got it in perfect conditions. This time, it was like a lay an inch layer of ice with about 3 to 4 inches of snow. Trevino and Mulligan weren't the first to descend Half dome in the snow. It's been done on skis and on snowboard, but their trip was special. Well made Our stand a little different is we? We skied the cables with no ropes. But then we see it all the way down to near Lake So another 4000 plus Vertical feet. Achieving this lifelong dream has not stopped to Orlando from eyeing other slopes in the park. Every time I go to Yosemite. I look up into the mountains and just there's so much I want to do. They're still that's Jason Tor Lana, who skied down half dome into the Yosemite Valley last month.

The Neurobiology of Peak Performance with Steven Kotler

"So early in the book. Stephen writes that the only thing more difficult than the emotional. Toil of pursuing true excellence is the emotional toil of not pursuing excellence. I thought that was a really striking idea. Sort of starter interview. I asked stephen torn pack that for me. It's not a new idea. Abraham maslow's psychologist in the fifty s by sang. Whatever a person can be they must be humans evolved to go after sort of to rise to their full potential to tap into their full capability and there are significant consequences. If you don't use the system for how it's designed and and that sounds weird. They're eight major causes depression two of them genetics trauma get the most attention on genetics. Alone will never caused depression or anxiety and trauma as a general release to most radic growth not stress. The store on the other six categories are what happens when you fail the optimize intrinsic motivation. The way it's been designed to be optimized and things along those lines to breakdown in saves system that allows us to tackle high hard goals which were built to do. if we don't it starts breaking down on us for with significant consequences. When i read that what i thought and i'm curious what you think about this as okay pursuing true. Sounds like something for the very few like that. Is that is sort of like your olympic athlete. Your see over major company. But i guess what you're saying is this. This is something that needs to be universal. So how how does somebody who you know. Just kind of normal life integrate. The idea of two excellent into their own life an interesting question. I think most of us have singer to that. We do. Maybe falls in the hobby category for us. Prove that for that matter that we would love to be great at. I haven't met too many people who don't have one or two things like that on this essentially the system is built for that and and the handle that capacity. It's interesting on the more important point though is in this is a point. I make throughout the book. Which is the book is about people who are really interested in tackling high hard goals. Right what would we might call through excellence. But it doesn't matter because people form has nothing more or less than getting our biology work for us rather than gets a so. If you want to have an easier time at work on monday to make better decisions on tuesday you want to be a little more productive on wednesday. Maybe some creative problem solving on thursday. Take your pick the same tools that allow us to achieve. pure excellence. Chur excellence are of the same tools that we can use to improve our performance at any level. That's the only toolkit there is which is our biology. You talk about how you came into this world of looking at extreme performance and you use the term extreme innovation and it started out. Interestingly enough wasn't a lab it was in the world of extreme sports and he were journalists covering it so just to get us kind of in your head and how you were called to do this type of work. How did you arrive to the place you are today. I became a journalist in the early nineteen ninety s journalists astounding career. Because you get to kind of exploit your curiosities right anything. You're super passionate about their You you could write about. And i was super passionate about psychology and neuro science predominantly neuroscience fascinated with how humans work and neuroscience seemed to unlock a level of of kind of human mechanism. It was super interesting to me on the other side. I was obsessed with action. Sports adventure sports rock climbing surfing skiing. Snowboarding in the like and this was the early nineteen nineties. These sports were just kind of nascent activities. The gravity games just starting the x. games had just been launched and there weren't a whole lot of writers who knew much about the sports and i did. I was super curious. So i was lucky. Enough to basically spend the better portion of a decade chasing athletes around mountains across oceans. And as you pointed out the nineteen nineties is often considered the great era impossible in action. Sports were more impossible. Feats meaning things that were believe. Never going to happen. Never been done never going to be done. Were just being done. They were being iterating upon and this caught my attention for all the obvious reasons like it. Just it didn't make any sense. Waves that had been twenty five feet at. That was the max we could serve some. They were one hundred feet tall. Like everything was happening Like that across across the board in all these sports so it begged an explanation but more important was that there was a real every man effort to what was going on the the athletes. I knew who are sort of reinventing. The limits of human possibility. They had difficult childhoods came from broken. Homes it very little education the deb. A lot of money is let drugs and alcohol. There was a lot of risk taking. And you know. I knew from the narrow size of the psychology that normally when those things show up in a population you have bad consequences. People go to jail. People die young. What they don't do is reinvent. The limits of human performance over and over and over again and. That's exactly what. I was seeing so that was sort of where this started for me. I wanted to understand what i was looking at

How Breathwork Affects Your Brain And Helps You Experience Transcendence

"Have you ever heard stories of people coming out of meditation or breads work journey or even from plant medicine ceremony and talking about this profound sense of connection and unity and oneness this experience of feeling connected to everything around him and drowns ending beyond separation. Have you experienced that yourself and to really understand this scientifically. We need to understand the term default mode network. You see the demon. All the default more network is the name given to a network in your brain that has been shown to be crucial in normal everyday consciousness. That is when you're out and about your shopping. You're having a conversation and aimlessly browsing on your social media. Feeds the demon helps us function in the word and when it is added speak activity level is linked to mental processes such as our awareness of ourselves that is our ego construct our relationship those around us and how they perceive us and our relationship to the past and to the future. That is what happened why it happened. What could have happened. What will happen. What won't happen and questions like this. Does that sound familiar now when you are focused on a specific dusk such as solving a puzzle. Are snowboarding down. The mountain are trying to catch a moving ball. That's usually win the d. m. n. is at its lowest activity level. Now since we're talking about the brain year the default mode network has been linked to many mental conditions. Let's take the example of depression. When the demon is hyper active it can lead to excessive self reflection and creating of narratives and stories that are inaccurate or excessively negative. That's because the or active demon is always comparing our present state with something that happened in the past or projecting months or even years into the future. Another interesting thing is that the demon is intricately connected with chronic. Been being such a subjective expedience and often dime connected with an underlying emotion or memory that the person keeps going to again and again and it's hard to quantify pin because different people might have different reactions emotional connections and dollar ince's do they're being but when a person with chronic been dense do ruminate and think about there being. This tends to increase the severity of the pain and is correlated to an over active d. m. and so. Are you seeing how all of this seems to make sense. What if there was a way to turn off or turn down the activity levels in your default more network so in my research so far. I've come across a lot of studies about the effects of meditation and psychedelics on calming the d. m. n. Meditation has been shown to reduce the activity in people. But here's the catch in people who have been practicing for years together. However there are some forms of meditation such as johnson dental meditation. Meditation that actually increases the activation of demon with. She is pretty interesting right. I'll need to learn more about that now. I did come across. Many articles that suggest that psychedelics namely ceelo siobhaun contained in the magic mushroom has the quickest most profound effect on calming the and creating what is known as ego. Disillusion or the ego death. I'm sure you've come across that term before. But how does it work so just imagine that each part of your brain bleeds it particular instrument. One part is playing the cello. The other partly as violin clarinet won the flu and so on and normally each of these instruments are playing individually unbeknownst off the other once silla sivan enters it is as if the master conductor of the orchestra who was knocked out of consciousness suddenly gains consciousness and wakes up and starts guiding the orchestra and so now there is a communication between different musicians sitting in different parts of the stage who were initially compartmentalized. But now they're playing together and there's a crescendo. And what you receive is beautiful music.

Interview With Fighter Pilot Rochelle Kimbrell

"I'm joined today by rochelle kimbrell. She was the first african american female fighter pilot in the united states. air force. well that's really cool rachelle. Thank you for being with us today. Absolutely thanks for having me your welcome so now tell us tell us how you cut your start in aviation started aviation. I took my first lesson when i was fourteen years old. I was just very fascinated on by flight. Invite space when i was in kindergarten. I wanted to be an astronaut. And i wrote a way to nasa. Find out what it takes to be an astronaut the on my double lines crayon paper and they sent me back a huge pack. That stayed in my room for most of my most of my life. the just kind of walked us through how you become an astronaut about fourth grade. I realized as i was still learning about it. Because i was fascinated that All astronauts don't get to go to space and that was a little bit Concerning to me. Because i wanted to do something where i would actually get to do it every day so i kind of lucked into the next best thing would be flying jets so reverse engineered my life to figure out how i could do that. So i got my first lesson at fourteen and And had my license. By the time. I was seventeen and just absolutely fell in love with the idea at first but then the actual acts of. Why did you pursue getting and all that before you went to the economy. I did not so being a little bit funds limited. You know. I did what i could so it took me a while to get through the steps. We kind of took lessons when there was money to take lessons. joined the civil air patrol with intentions of Being part of the flying program there that they efforts but ended up kind of falling into the cadet activity side and doing a lot more fit activities than actually fine. And then pursuing my pilot's license on on land. And i assume you seen gliders at dakota me also i did a little bit I didn't do the whole program. I did basically what we were required to do. And then i was focusing a little bit more on the hill. And what What was your major. I ended up with a general engineering. Major okay. I started with but that's where i ended up. Well you started out with. What astro engineering mechanic. Oh okay so now. Did you go right to the training or did you have to do something else before they had a slot for you right. The pilot training Basically right after sixty days of leave in august of ninety eight. I started pilot training and you went to laughlin right i did. I went to doria by the see. So how did you do in pilot training. you know. that's a funny question. Most people know their rankings and how they came out. I'm not really sure was never told. I don't know obviously i did well up to get next to keep right but for some reason you know now as i'm older people number two number why i have no idea really so now. This timeframe was nike and ninety eight time frame. So there are a lot of women in piloting. At that time i went. Say a lot but we have larger class of women but they all went t- ones and my helicopters And i can't even tell you. I'd have to look at the picture but i think that there were six or seven of us and our thoughts and you selected the efficiency of sixteen. And where did you go to to rt for sixteen force based on. Okay and what was your first assignment i went to miss. Our japan gets chilly in the winter. There was awesome. Great snow greek snowboarding in place to station

Lovers of winter sports call for climate action

"People who love winter sports. Like skiing and snowboarding. No there's something special about being out. In the cold we find things in deep winter. Or high altitude elevations that we don't find anywhere else. Speak very directly to our connection to nature and the human soul. Really mario molina is executive director of the nonprofit. Protect our winters. He says people who enjoy winter. Sports want to preserve this experience for future generations. They want those sports on to their kids and the graduate but global warming is causing warmer winters and more precipitation to fall as rain instead of snow that puts winter sports at risk so the protect our winters campaign mobilize outdoor enthusiasts to take action. We turn passionate outdoor enthusiasts into effective climate advocates for example one campaign encourages athletes to speak out against fossil fuel extraction on public lands another winter sports lovers to contact their elected officials in support of clean energy. So protect our winters encourages. Everyone from casual skiers too big mountain snowboarders to get involved join together and demand climate action.

What is psychological strength?

"Everyone welcome back to the building. Psychological strength podcast. My name is april. And i'm your host. I am so excited that you tuned in this week. I'm absolutely freaking out am completely giddy. Because this week is episode number drummer. All two hundred. I'm so excited before we jump into what the content of the actual episode is. I want just give a little shoutout and a little. Psa to anybody who is thinking about starting a new project and feels apprehensive about your ability level. You may be. Don't feel comfortable. Maybe you feel like you're comparing yourself to other people who are further down the road than you I'm just gonna tell you start. Let's go all the way back and you can actually do this. You can go on your podcast app. All the way back to episode one to three. They are still out there all the way back then. This podcast had a different title. It was called women inspired. This podcast had a different focus. That was actually very unfocused. Which is something. That i did wrong right so didn't even really think about my title wrong. was not focused on a particular topic wrong might cover art. I spent about fourteen seconds designing it. I think in powerpoint wrong wrong wrong. Wrong wrong I didn't really research how. I should set myself up on itunes or anything like that about how to make the podcast successful wrong and i had terrible audio quality. I edited myself all of these things. I did all of them wrong. And yet here we are at two hundred episodes with a growing thriving audience. It happened because i made every mistake and just committed to trying to figure them out so for you if there is a project that you wanna take on whether it's gonna create a website or a blog and you don't know how to start if it is. You wanna learn how to watercolor paint or snowboard this year or whatever it happens to be get out there get started and go suck for a little bit. It's gonna be fine It's so exciting to see where we've ended up the focus that we have in a topic area that i am so incredibly in love with and so passionate about and frankly a topic area that can help one hundred percent of people who stumble across this podcast. And that's why you know. We call the podcast building psychological strength. Because we want to teach you how to use some really rigorous tools and techniques to help yourself thrive and live better and for this exciting celebratory. Two hundred episode of the podcast. We wanted to dive in a bit to what we mean by psychological strength. Because i'll be super honest. We made it up. It's not a thing it's not an actual thing. We made it up and the reason why we made it. Up is because so much of the field of psychology is very academic focused. It's very behind the closed doors of a therapist's office it is i've tower academia and all of those things are very important and they play a role but they are not mechanisms for getting information out to a wide audience. So what we wanted to do with this. Podcast is talk about some of this really cool rigorous stuff in a way. That's a bit more approachable. And we came up with the term psychological strength because it really encompasses all of the facets that we think about and this is you know even in the ivory tower even in academia in therapeutic settings all of the facets that we think about that go into a person's mental wellbeing and the two hundredth episode. We want to dive into that. So ashley's here with me. We're having strength today and what it is and what it means and why you should care am so excited in before we do april. Just congratulations two. Hundred episodes is a big deal and i remember the beginning. I remember when you first. But do you know what i remember. It was seeing it and then having the thought. Oh my gosh. I really wanna be a guest. That would be so amazing. And then they were in the early day you ask at. It was like one of the coolest experiences i've done. Because i just felt so awesome and then here we are and i love getting to be a side kick and regular guest on with you and to senior podcast grow and evolve and become really laser focused in see this audience grow to and we have such a cool community around peak. Mind in in this concept of psychological strength. So let's get busy. Let's dive in. I love it so we do all this setup right because we talk about psych strength as though. It's a thing that everybody should understand and realistically you probably have a pretty good idea as to what it is. It's exactly what it sounds like. But there may be more detail and more facets to it and what you might not or than what you might realize so we want to go through in particular four different facets of psych strength to help you understand how important of a we'll call it skill this is in your life and how impactful it can be in so many different ways so we'll dive into these four along the way we'll talk about why they matter and give some really concrete examples so right out of the gate. We'll go with the most obvious one aflaid do that kind of on a soapbox for jag. Okay so ask a mental health professional and one the soap-boxes determine mental health I do it. I said right vad. Okay but here. Here's here's the reason why. It's a very real thing and are dedicated. Almost twenty years to improving mental health. But the issue. The reason why. I don't like it is because then we talk about mental health and physical health like they are separate things in really think that the data show the research shows your lived. Experience shows that we need to be looking at health and wellbeing as just this holistic kind of thing and i don't mean holistic like woo crystals in in whatnot. I mean whole person. Every facet of it but part of the reason why i really gravitate toward the term psychological strength is because it does draw those parallels to physical health. That people are used to thinking about. We're used to thinking about our health. And taking steps like exercising and different kinds of exercises in different goals of like cardio versus stretching versus weight trading in we talk about eating habits and sleep and all of these things to help us feel better and to really to do better in our bodies we need to in the exact same thing with our brains

MagSafe for iPhone 12! What Is It & What Can It Do!?

"So mag safe by the way what a troll of name everybody who the sport from their Mac book so much and like us year like in Dungle Hell watching this event and we're bringing back safe back and you. Get this warm flicker of glow and they're like it's a giant circle for your phone. What's safe about the point of maximum says that it would detach from your laptop when you tripped on it so the laptop wouldn't go flying. Do you think that your phone is gonNA attach from this circular magnet when you trip on the cable and it won't go? There's nothing safe about. Trading on the goodwill towards rational ports laptops. And instead it's a circle. So it looks very much like the like the Apple. Watch charger IT'S G. So the phone consult charge using your old she chargers a lot of confusion about this yesterday. So he can still just charge found aled while charging patio. If you buy apples meg safe one. Yep. It will use magnets to click on the back of the phone line itself in charge of fifteen watts, which is faster than most. Not As fast as a cable. But. The magnets are strong enough to hold the thing on the back of the phone and I swear to God. The point of this is so that when you get into bed at night, your phone's dead and you still want to screw around on your phone while plugged in dip you can. That's that's one hundred percent why they made this happen only if they made it like a six foot cable though. So it's an open standard. They've published the SPEC. There's there's some NFL stuff floating around. Anybody can just magnets they can't. They can't dram the magnets as far as I can tell the question is, can they can they MSI made for iphone drm the fifteen watt charging speed day? Definitely. MSI APP charters. So yeah. So they're definitely there's little NFC tags and the cases and the official stuff. So I'm sure they can software rate limit the charger, but anybody can make out dull Cardi making car mounts, Sco she's already making like it's happening. This is the accessory ecosystem for the iphone in it is all happening. So that is built out so that when they take the port off the phone, everyone's already used to click in little circles on the back. By the way that we've had this whole environmental conversation. To Max's circle looks very big. Compared to how tiny? Lightening Cable. Giant. It's like a coaster that you're throwing around wireless chargers waste electricity compared to came the radically less efficient, and so it's not good for the environment. He's where the starter apple buys Tesla. Conspiracy Theory was taking the port off the phone I'm saying that they're buying Tesla. Tesla Power Wall. So it's all happening. I think save is exciting I for one like I have a wireless car charger amount in my car and it's the it's the best. And so being able to throw your phone on there and taking off is really awesome. They're already all kinds of cases for that. I keep thinking about my little Osmo Jimbo. Yeah and so the new one has a magnet but you sound like fiddle with a clip to get it on your phone if that thing just becomes a MAG safe attachment. Like there's a million things you were taking your phone in and out of yeah plus they're going to sell more pants because people have to buy special pants with extra pocket with protective line or added to keep it from demagnetize credit. Battery packs that just magnet on the back that's was your iphone mini problem like there's just like a bunch of cool ideas that happen when you have. A magnetic attach things to found. The question is, how strong are these magnets? Can they hold the way of a battery pack? Can they keep your kimball mounted while you're I don't know doing extreme sports. Like whatever people do? Get. You're bombed down the snowboard mountain. Well, those magnets mess with the compass because that was a problem on the first phone that had A. Surger the palm pre. Just pointing that I get ahead, say I'm pretty sure like mom rushing the phone out the door and crap, the compass doesn't work. On their cabin board of problems. Far, below like sprint exclusive. Hopefully, it's like did anybody check the magnets and like five thousand apple engineers assigned to that problem now? I, think it's really neat I. DO think that it's obvious. The march taking off the phone is underway I very mixed feelings about this.

Places to Fly Fish

"Desportivo fly-fishing has become a favorite way for many urbanites to decompress. And that's how Chris Santillo started his fifty places recreation guides. He now also writes about places to paddle bicycle golf end snowboard, but his number one passion is fly fishing Chris thanks for joining US great to be here, Rick. Thanks what is it about fly fishing that those who know it and love it or so passionate about I've thought about this a lot oftentimes when I'm out on the river and I think that people come at it from a lot of different directions I. I think there's the chance to be out in nature in a quiet and beautiful place. There's an old saying that's trout don't live in ugly places and neither do bone Fisher Tarp in Atlantic Salmon. So you're usually in pretty pristine places that can support these fish species. About especially, if you're river fishing about being in the water, I don't mean to sound cliche but there is something about the oneness of being with the river in that sense of flow I drive a lot over mountains and past beautiful rivers in Europe and the United States and I see a lot of people with hip Bhutan standing deepen in the river and there is something. Special about that I would imagine you have there is a feeling of being. In the moment and in the flow of life of the rivers as a metaphor for flow of life and time passing, and it's never the same water that you're standing in and I think there is something profound rap subliminal about that that has an appeal There is an analytic. A fly fishing I think it has appealed to people the whole idea of trying to determine what the Fisher eating at a given time, and then trying to either look in your fly box and find the the right fly that seems to match the kind of bugs at the trout might eating or I know some friends will bring a fly tying vice in some feathers and hair and hooks to the side of a stream, and if they don't have what the right bug is at the time or the right fly, they will go and tie it. Up on the spot and hope that they're going to make that match matching the hatches, the term that writer named Ernie Schreiber came up with years ago the hatch being the kind of insect that is occurring on the river at that time but just having the arsenal and matching the flame with the others that are being eaten that's probably integral to being successful fly, Fisher and very important, and you'll find some anglers that are you know better equipped than others I've been out with some friends who will have literally five hundred or a thousand flies. I usually have one or two boxes and and hope that what I have. Oh, cover things ninety percent of the time, but there's always ten percent that doesn't work and one blanket work. Great. This morning in another flight would work great in the same hole this afternoon exactly because what happens on many river systems as you will have different sorts of insects emerging coming out of river or settling down upon the river at different times of the day you might have may flies that are. Popping up from the bottom of the river as Nymphs, and then turning into adult bugs and being on the surface in the morning, and that might be a white insect, the size of your Pinky Nail, and then in the afternoon as it gets warmer, the grasshoppers might become active and the wind may be him into the river and they are green and yellow, and they're the size of your thumb. It's sort of a a battle going on what are the it is it's man versus nature. Chris and Taylor has written a dozen best selling books about outdoor adventures in his fifty places series. One of his titles collects the thoughts of Passionate Anglers Y. I, fly fish and their favorite fishing places are covered in fifty more places to fly fish before you die you'll also see Chris's byline and major sport fishing publications.

All the biggest announcements from Ubisoft's Forward event

"Forward was yesterday a bunch of stuff got announced. We want to give you a recap of it. immortals. Phoenix rising was revealed of course, gods and monsters re renamed redone. It's covering the December third I. It's coming to deep breath playstation for playstation five, xbox one series series s switch PC. An Stadia on December third stadium however is getting demo before launched that'll be exclusive. Stadia it'll be a unique island. It's coming sometime later this year before December third busing you liked what you play this game yeah. No I enjoyed it like I've said this before, but it's basically you be Saas version breath wild and I think that very much shows each and every way where you have so many of the mechanics and ideas from breath while the climbing and like the the they have a shrine Like replacement in in Gaza and immortals Phoenix rising, they have the open world that is filled with puzzles and all this stuff play lot somewhere at ease. But then also if you'll. If. You'll structured like a Yousof game and I was actually talking to my roommate Michael about this last night. But he was very much like seems like breath breathalyzer came out and it it copied a lot of what you saw is doing and we saw Admiral Hey we can be. Doing I feel like that's a pretty apt way to put it almost when you look at the towers and stuff breath wild. Stuff manifest this. Game though has me excited. For I'm. Coming to next Gen, I think is exciting. I N necessarily expected not to, but this plus came out in. February and so I think I had the question of all right what does this release look like and so that's an exciting thing I. wonder if it looks better, I wonder how I wonder what the differences between the two skews It also coming to switch is really exciting because I was thinking they revealed that surprise me you know especially with the breadth of wild similarities that coming to switch I think is going to be interesting for that audience to see how people will take to it whether people flocked to order people are put off to put off by it. I. My my thing in this isn't me knocking it right breath. The wild part of that game I thought was the journey across the island and making it feel like you're making big steps watching What we saw last night from Phoenix rising. It seemed like traversing the island in getting around seemed quicker. Is that an apt description or is that just what made to look like? I think that's apt but I also wonder how late in the game that is because when I jumped in halfway through I, wonder if we're at the beginning of the game, does heal a lot slower because that is my thing with breath to you a breath breath the wild. One. Of The wild one. Breath wild felt like one of the biggest open world games I played even though it probably like in scale of the map, it probably isn't as like it probably isn't that big you know in reality but the way in which they approach like that journey aspect of it makes it feel like it's huge near exploring all these different things in that like you know you really feel like you're going. Through journey because you're kind of exploring that world slowly and meticulously, and you know, they give you the the paraglider thing early in the game breath wild Ryan so like they give you some of those those those tools to explorer in like go through the island quicker. But even even with that Econo, still feel like you're tracking few and You know really getting everything out of the map. Immoral Phoenix rising when I was playing did feel a bit like quicker and did feel be onto the next thing right? You feel like you are going to the next class breath while didn't really have A. The has system, but it's not as traditional and strict as. A. Lot of other similar open World Games try immoral Phoenix rising does seem to have a quest system that is a bit stricter in terms of, hey, go do this thing called the next question? Do this thing called? The next. Which? I think a lot of people who may not have liked breath wild for that are going to like a moral phoenix rising for its structure. But I think that also means that you might be exploring this game at a particular pace is probably going to be a bit quicker. I don't think it is going to be the man. What is this? What we're here I'M GONNA I'M GONNA check this out like this who unique thing that you've never seen before that that that blows your mind I don't know how those moments you're gonna get but you are going to have like open world puzzles and things that are discoverable just maybe not on the level of breath. Wow. Okay I had zero hype for this game and then washing shows like Oh shit I'd like to play that and I think December's time for to after like the run to black Friday new consoles or out every starting to chill and settle for the holidays. This seems like a game I play in Madame. On top of that, then prison persia the sands of time remake was announced coming January twenty first. Every of the current generation no Nexgen for it your Yuri Lowenthal is back. That's right. Spiderman of self animal prints the original prints from Principia. Exciting for that.

Talk about this because you tim immediately lit up for this one and I mean, we started reading twitter. Yeah. I don't know exactly what it is about this game I don't know if there's one thing about this game rows like this me this is what I need but like the more and more they show during that trailer because it was it was a long trailer, the more and Morales like. No. Yeah. This seems like it has a fun like it seems like a fun combination of quite a few ubisoft games. Right has a lot of steep in. It seems like it has some trials in it even seems like it has some far cry in it. When you look at the world and you look at the some of the colors you see an almost has like some rage in it all. You know when you look at when you look at the colors i. I want to know more about what structure of the game is like. Is it battery Al is a like fog is, is it just you're doing a bunch of different activities that that scale based on how many players? There are ten players to thirty whatever I'm more curious about that. But from the stuff they show they show a game that was very similar to graffiti from Tony Hawk. Where graffiti is the game where like it's a multiplayer game where if you do a trick on a ramp or like on a grind or whatever yellow then color that the ramp or or the grind your color, and you are essentially doing as matrix all over the map as you can in order to take over the map versus your opponent almost kind of platoon ish in a way. They showed a game battle is very much that we've made me go. Oh, snap. All right. This seems like it has a lot in in terms of the different, the different ways in which you can have fun. So all about it looks cool. It looks like it's going to grow over time I'm surprised it's coming out so soon.

Does Influencer Marketing Work

"Does having your business or brand promoted by a celebrity by influencer by tastes meagre in your market really work does it do more than just awareness as actually convert into actual sales? That's what we get into in today's episode. The first thing on a mention is that influence their marketing has levels. Okay. Now, everybody is going to be able to afford to use Shaquille O'Neal's influencers or Kardashian or the rock for that matter. Okay. But for most businesses, you don't need these big celebrities. You don't need these big names will you actually need is somebody who has a following? The has an audience that would be perfect for your products and services somebody who's really need. But has raving fans, I'll give you some examples. Pat Flynn is considered a influencer in the blogging community, the online business community. The content marketing community converted is a email marketing service for creators for bloggers. So pat is a big deal in that space. So when PAT promotes converted, it's going to move a lot of business because. I actually love what he says love what he does and they'll do a he recommends. So if he promotes convert it to his email emails on instagram on a social profiles does a Webinar that's a perfect match for converted. They're actually GONNA make more sales from Pat Flynn whose only known in that community. Then let's say a B. Actor who's well known but maybe doesn't have the following in that space. There's a cycled CAMEO DOT COM. The has celebrities that are well known household names that are willing to give shout outs and some people even endorsed businesses. Now, this might look. Cool and seem nice and maybe ego boost for your business. But it's probably not gonNA move a lot of sales because Kevin from the office is really not the authority in your niche market is not somebody people really trust in terms of a recommendation it's kind of cool thing to have, but it's not really gonNA move sales. So I really want to impress upon you today is you wanna find celebrities in your niche in your market who are the people that have the biggest following who is the biggest name in your niche if you're in the swimming niche WHO's the biggest? Swimming coach that everybody knows about in your country if you're into snowboarding who is a big snowboarder that is on youtube though has a following that people watch. You don't have to go with the household names, but the names that are known in your niche are really powerful because they can really really influence their audience to buy your product. So how does this all work? Well, I recommend when it comes to an agreement with an influencer is do a combination of a guarantee minimum plus commission. This allows them to have some skin in the game and want to push your product and. Promote it and recommend it and use it and give a testimony. So something like this would be like You know you're gonNA share this on your email list you're going to do a Webinar with me and you're GonNa you know post this on your social profiles, three times in one week and We're GONNA pay you. Let's say ten thousand dollars. Now this is just a figure I just pull out of my head. This is something that you can negotiate. It also depends on the following but in addition to the ten thousand dollars you WanNa say, Hey, use an affiliate link. Here's the link and you're going to get twenty percents on all sales. Again the percentage pulled out of my head. You can come up with the number of that's right for your business. But the point here is that they get a combination of cash upfront for doing what they do or even still fifty, fifty, five, grand five grand. In this example, you know five star five after the WHO fills obligations, and then they get the ongoing commission for any sales they get. So they can continue to promote you beyond the minimum commitment and they become sort of a partner with you.

How do I shut off my brain so I can recharge?

"So Marivan emails me this great question for taste Cuny Wednesday. He says lately I have been working a lot. Most of which requires a lot of thinking I'm a web developer I love my job and what I do so much that I can't stop thinking about it when I'm eating when I'm working when I'm playing games, even when I'm hanging out with my friends, and family and I just don't want to do that I want my brain. To shut off, so I can recover Sarkin recuperate. Love the show. Love the podcast so much marathon. Thank you so much for that. Great Question Marathon and you are spot on. Many entrepreneurs. Many professionals deal with this issue and I'm GONNA. Give you my strategies. comes to dealing with this number one. It's good that you recognize you have the self awareness to understand that you're doing something that is maybe not the best for you where your mind is racing constantly. Some people think hey, that's great. You should be thinking about your should be carrying about all these things. You should be thinking about what you're doing. Y Shut it off while there's a big reason. There's actually a real biological reason why you should do it. Scientifically proven that your brain works at its best at its subconscious meaning. have. You ever noticed that you might have a problem in life or in business and you slept on it? You get the chance to sleep to rest, or you stepped away from it for a little bit. You went for a walk and it gets solved why you come up with great ideas well, how does it happen? It's because your subconscious brain allows itself to work on it. You have to allow your brain to shut off a little bit you need to. Stop thinking about it in. Your conscious mind. This is why it's actually good for your business to stop thinking about Your Business or whatever you do. Your subconscious mind is going to allow yourself. To solve problems to think of better ideas. There's only so much your conscious mind can do. So there are a few things I want to mention. These are the things that have worked for me number one. It's very hard when you're awake when you're actually in the daytime when you're spending your days when it's the weekend. To kind of just shut off your brain. You're not sleeping, right? You're not unconscious. Right so you want to do something else. What should you do to stop thinking about what you are constantly thinking about? This is where immersion comes in a big believer that in order for you to stop thinking about something or to take a break from something. You have to immerse yourself in something else. That's totally immersive. That takes your full attention that requires you to focus completely on it, and this could be several things for some people. It's like snowboarding or skiing because if you're down, the mountain on skis are on a snowboard unit focused totally on what you're doing. You're avoiding trees avoiding people. You're controlling your balance. All that kind of you're just totally immersed in that. You can't think about anything else. And the feeling that people have had a full day of skiing or snowboarding is a sense of zen sense of relaxation. How could that be they physical activity for six seven hours well, it's because their brain got a break. You gotta break from what normally thinks about. It pushed all your common thoughts to your subconscious, and your conscious mon was consumed with something totally different. This is just one example I know a lot of people. They have the same experience when they're in a very intense card game in a poker game. Even in an game we're requires their total focus and concentration. Another example is sport like if you play in a league, the safest companies they soccer basketball like I played basketball for recreation, and you can't think about anything else when you're in a basketball game you're there's so much going on. You need to focus on what you're doing and you're dribbling shooting. You're passing your thing of strategy. You think of the score. It really allows you to wipe your mind for a couple hours, and it's actually you come back feeling a sense of relief. For some people, it's a gripping novel that puts them in that place. Unique to find your think, marijuana and everybody listening you have to think what can I do? That can immerse myself. Rum totally focused on that task. These

The Road to Building Products with Nick Lesec

"You've worked, it might not work in sports. Priority did working gaming. Yeah, actually. So after college I went and got A. An associate's degree actually. Went from a bachelors back to an associates. In game production. So. We learned the basics of everything that goes into making a game. Things like design arts animation programming all that fun stuff. and. From there actually was a QA tester to K-. If you've ever played the game, x Com. You're welcome. I mean I was just the tester but. Actually not the funnest job, but What what is quickly because I know that's a lot of people when they wanted to get into sports or wanted to in the gaming. Gaming particularly. Yes, cigarettes entry level it like the dream job right? Yeah, yeah, and I! I was imagining like Grandma's boy. Everyone just sitting around playing video games all day high fiving each other. But? It's basically you're you're playing. A broken piece of software. Over and over. For eight hours a day. Minimum. There's lot of overtime. And you're you're looking for bugs and logging the bugs. Wow, that sounds thrilling is grueling. Prefer too late to the game comes out. Yeah Yeah. And then. From there action went to t h Q, which is now defunct. Publisher for for Video Games. They were up there with like EA Knack Division things like that. I was doing trade marketing there, which is like retail marketing, so we worked a lot with. basically like physical stores for the marketing that goes on in there like you know these big displays in the store, or you know how to position the game on the shelf and things like that. It was a mix of that as well as trade show coordination, which is really fun I. Really Liked doing the trade show stuff. There's a lot of moving parts. So I got to flex my project. Management skills there That's where I learned a lot of those skills and. You get to travel a lot. which was superfund fun. There would be like six months out of the year where it's just like nonstop travel going around the country even got to go to whistler. Canada, which is like Super Nice. Snowboarding slash ski resort town. That was really really cool and I found out that Canadians are just way way more active than. than all of Americans every day there, let's go bungee jumping and. Let's. Let's go skiing and snowboarding and let's. What is it called? Let's go zip lining unlike. Anita NAP. Yeah, I think Austrailia goes to whistler to work on the mountain. So many Soviet, my friends throughout like this, a high school and college years ended up going to whistle to like train people. Get to work out the lift operators or trade. kind of stuff. So. Yeah, you make a lot. Australians there as well. How did you get into product management specifically? Well. As well with a lot of product managers. That was kind of something that. Is Not something necessarily planned on. Something I kind of fell into and then fell in love with it. So basically I was at. A Marketing Company for beauty products. In their digital department, for like their websites and everything and I was doing what they called I was digital producer. is mostly because they were a TV company. They made a lot of infomercials. That's their bread and butter and where they came from. Then they introduced. They found out about this thing called the Internet and. You know. Put their products on the websites and everything and they were just like you like you coordinate and. Developers and all these people to build stuff. Oh, you're your producer digital producer your digital producers. But it became clear pretty quickly that like for this company to succeed and grow. You need to embrace this whole. Internet thing. It's not going away. So they decided to get really serious and build out this department and and start to treat this department and the rest of the company more like a Internet company like an e commerce company. And so that entailed redefining some roles so one day they were like. Your product manager now and I was like what is i. don't even know what that is. So I looked it up and I did all his research and. Along with my fellow digital producers now recently product managers. And it was really cool like it. Like opened up this whole world I didn't even know was there at the time. And I. Remember One of my my co workers. He's like. This whole product management thing this is this is a really big deal like this is a huge step forward for us like take this very seriously and so I did and I studied the hell out of it. You know trained myself on a lot of best practices and things like that reading books, articles and Talking to people and was actually able to help. Build out the product management discipline. there. Since I seem to be. One of the folks that cared. To do so and. Yeah just. Being able to learn and teach these things and then apply them in real life. was just so cool and it's one of those jobs that like. You can see the results with with numbers and everything and you can. You can gauge success. And I mean that's how I got started. And then from there I went to that that learning company I was telling you about would that have made sure product management organization already in place and. was able to learn a lot more there

"snowboarding" Discussed on The Dave Gram Show on WDEV

"So we also work with I think Adam touched on it earlier, but we work with the governors conference on or physical fitness council to make learn to packages really affordable for kids learning to ski and many of our ski areas. I'd say the majority work with their local schools to bring school kids up, you know, on Thursday or Friday afternoon for a multi week program. So I would say, you know, there are a number of ways to stave on and trying to get into the sport little bit less. Expensively Ataman, Molly actually, I'll start with Molly on this one. We haven't talked about snowboarding, and I know that, that is a. Obviously an important activity for, for a lot of the resorts. How much of an impact does this have is, as just sort of being a slice of the ski economy in Vermont? What by scary? But and when we say, ski area, we say ski as sort of the, the term for both sports, which I know some snowboarders like offense up. But so just put that out there writing. I think as the proper skiing, and riding, and you could say skiing and riding areas, too, I suppose. However, so, but the general the general statistic is about eighty twenty I would say or it might be a little bit higher. At some areas. I've seen it up to upwards of twenty five percent at some ski areas. Okay. So borders to fierce. Yep. Eighty twenty eighty percents twenty percents. No borders. Okay. That's what I that's what I thought would would be the statistical breakdown roughly there. And, and are there some resorts where where there's any, I don't know, raised eyebrows, or, or other expressions of preference, here, how's that work? We'll certainly mad river Glen stand out because they don't they don't allow snowboarding there. And there are only number area that does not allow it and only one of several in the country, actually, that don't allow snowboarding, but I would say, no boarding, very, very mainstream and so much so that, you know, you're now getting the kids that grew up, snowboarding transitioned over to snowboarding from skiing are now raising their own kids, and so starting them off as. Is a snowboarder, maybe not as skiers which traditionally, you know, I think you see you saw people start out a skiers and then progress into snowboarding, and then you see people that that's which back and forth, but I know our partner Burton has put a lot of resources into trying to bring that next generation along, and helping those families things like the regular park and Wrigley technology, which is that is, you know, co-ord- that will attach to special snowboard created four children. So that it makes it easy for instructors, or parents to, you know, get them into the sport by towing through some, you know, small terrain elements so they get the feel of it. So you're seeing some innovation like that, and they are taking out to the schools as well to try to help grow the sport. It's good for for everybody. Let's take a couple of callers our last few minutes here. Wade from is on the line. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. It's way from northeast slopes. So Hello to your guest. Skiba on how we doing. Only raider reiterate right down the list from from the time. Your guest started down through and, and we are if you're not familiar with northeast slopes. We are just microcosm of the ski industry. We are all volunteer run right from the president all the way down to the to the beginner slope rope tow operator, and everybody just does it out of the, the love of their heart for the sport of skiing. And our percentage of the four point two million skier visits. Vermont decipher is out to zero point zero zero zero seven one percent. No that I mean that's absolutely mirrors talking about. We had a twenty percent increase in ridership. We had a twenty percent increase in, in gross income, and profits and and fifty percent increase in in smile ability for for the season that we had because we are all natural snow. We have no snow making. And so you're like this is something we really depend on. We just take them as they come back in was it fourteen fifteen was a bit of a disaster. But we survived it. We don't have a lot of overhead. And we got to rope does, and a and a t bar and are, are places very conducive to that twenty or twenty five percents snowboarders because it's a very wide open slope. And we are finding that people are coming back to some of the smaller ski areas, especially at sixty three year old, you know, radio hosts that want to get back into it. That needs a little crooked a little fixing up, but now are much more conducive to getting back into skiing. All right. Your guess, agree with that, that manufacturers now are just making, you know, the wide wide planks they're much easier to ski, they're much easier control. They're much easier on the joint. Absolutely. Yeah. Takes a lot less energy to initiate a turn on the new equipment than it did. If you are skiing, you know, if you haven't skied since the nineties, he definitely should try the new equipment and wait. I'm so glad that you call them. Because areas like the northeast Globes are so important. So the sport, you know, small community hill, if people are we're talking about the school programs reporting it locally. We have an off season event, which is a music festival, all of its profits go into our local, you've ski program and leasing equipment for kids at normally, couldn't have it and getting volunteer instructors, they'll never a day week for that, you know that six weeks during the middle.

You know, see climate change, take effect on these areas that snowboarding and and my snowboarding was was at was part of that problem. And then I really got.

And it was, and it was a really big turning point for me and it was terrifying as actually in it's funny, the things that have kept me up more at night is not this like serious mountain. I'm going to snowboard, but these changes or decisions I've made in life. So. The anxiety of like it was very funny when I and I told my sponsors as very honest, I'm like, hey, I'm making these big changes at that point.

So the equivalent of with helicopter we film eight lines day on foot. We were lucky to put three film lines down in a month of being out there. I don't know if people listening, we'll have an appreciation for less. They go watch some of your films your when you say hiking or on foot, right? Just go. Yeah, I'll put a link to all of them. You need to go watch to get an understanding because there's some hiking and on some on foot stuff. It'll make you sweat watching it and the distances not like you're talking one hundred yards. You're talking miles. Yeah. And it's it's funny because you know along the lines when I started protect our winters a couple years prior to this. Which is foundation focused on slowing down climate change. But my friend, you know, my friends and these people working with, you know, kind of under their breath or like, wow, man, this he's taken this environmental stuff really far and they jokingly be like, how's that hippie snowboard film come in. What they didn't realize is we're like seventy five miles from the closest road camped out underneath the biggest mountains and lines that I had ever tried to snowboard and I was my goal was going if if I can figure out this foot powered stuff and how to hike these things, I know have ninety five.
