    Power Running – The New Frontier in Trainning

    in Sports

    Cyclists have long understood the value of being able to monitor power as a precise training modality. Many experts believe that if runners were able to effectively employ power measurement while training and racing, all of the current world records would fall. Join us as our host Richard Diaz and his featured guest Hunter Allen discuss the potential of power measurement for runners, the benefits and the approach.  Hunter Allen is founder of Peaks Coaching Group and coauthor of Cutting Edge Cycling and Training and Racing with a Power Meter, two of the most respected books on training with power meters.  Learn why training with power differs from training with traditionalheart rate and how tracking these two powerful complementary metrics can help you achieve peak performance.

  • Urban Therapy with Sun #144 The 90-Day Probation Period.

    in Lifestyle

    Many jobs make a new employee wait 90 days before they can claim full benefits as a full-time employee. During this time, an employee is not expected to have any unexcused latenesses or absences. If the employee violates the rules within that time period, he/she can be terminated uncontested. Ever wonder why 90 days is the measurement that companies use to grade new employees? Let's see if we can find out why.

    Many women have employed the 90 day rule when it comes to having sexual relations with a new potential relationship. Is this a result of reading Steve Harvey's book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man? Has this changed the game as far as dating is concerned? Can a book overrule what the heart feels? What would be the benefits that are derived from making a man wait 90 days to have sex? Would you use that criteria? Should a man be expected to wait for that long? Is that a long time?

    What are some other things that people wait 90 days for?
    How about drug rehab? Isn't that the time period that most in-patient programs use to determine whether an addict has successfully completed detox? Why 90 days?
    What's up with the 90 day rule? Is there something valid behind that time period?
    Listen to the show on Wednesday and let's see what we can find out.

    Marcy Wheeler: Espionage in the 21st Century

    in Politics Progressive

    Understanding US public policy, both domestic and foreign, is impossible without considering the role of intelligence operations, government, contracted to government and private. The roles of domestic surveillance, foreign infilitration, and exploits directed at US assets are not reported in traditional media unless the breaches are yawning.


    Marcy Wheeler is on this beat, and reports upon it at emptywheel.net. We discuss espionage and its role in contemporary policy making.


    from Wiki: 'Human Intelligence (frequently abbreviated HUMINT) is intelligence gathered by means of interpersonal contact, as opposed to the more technical intelligence gathering disciplines such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), imagery intelligence (IMINT) and measurement and signature intelligence (MASINT).'

    Making a measurement- episode 4

    in Spirituality

    One of the most ubiquitous ways in which we think and engage in the world is by comparison. We compare our lives and ideas to others, our past to our present and so on. This way of thinking and speaking is a common tool of the ego to inflate ones persona by reinforcing an artificial hierarchy. Leeza suggest that we practice discernment and self-reflection rather than opinion making and value judgements.
     
    We'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic and possibly how your life has changed by pondering such ideas.
     
    This show is about the sincere investigation of how language shapes the mind, thinking greater than our perceived environment and growing in our capacity to live fully in the present moment.
     
    Leeza offers her insights on compassion, equanimity, and the peace that transcends all understanding. Your active participation is essential- as you're part of the equation.
