Taking inspiration from trees, scientists have developed a battery made from a sliver of wood coated with tin that shows promise for becoming a tiny, long-lasting, efficient and environmentally friendly energy source. Their report on the device — 1,000 times thinner than a sheet of paper — appears in the journal Nano Letters.

<p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">In the modern era, our nutrition systems are in crisis. Foods that once had high levels of minerals and vitamins have seen their levels plummet as a result of the compromised health of our soil and ecosystems. With these changes, our waistlines have expanded, as food is less nutrient-dense and therefore less filling. Entire communities are undernourished and overweight. This is a direct result of the figurative and literal food deserts we live in today. It's time for a new era, one that puts nutrition first, without compromise. </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">At Nutrition Without Compromise we believe that great nutrition and bountiful health is a human right. We believe that you should never have to make a choice between your ethics, your morals, the food on your plate, and the environment that produces it in order to stay your healthiest and live your best life. If you want to join a movement that challenges the status quo, that asks you to think deeply and discover new solutions that you might never have thought possible, then this podcast and community is exactly where you belong. </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">This show is hosted by Corinna Bellizzi, a natural products industry veteran who has spent her entire professional career growing sustainable, regenerative brands that challenge the traditional way of doing things, and that always ask what we can do differently, and better. With a background in anthropology and ethnographic research she constantly seeks solutions to common problems that will work to improve the lives of greater communities around the globe. Corinna has an extensive nutrition background, having formulated and marketed hundreds of supplements and foods over the last 20+ years. These products include traditional approaches to health and wellness, incorporating herbal extracts, micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) and macronutrients including omega-3s, other essential fatty acids and proteins. She is periodically joined by co-hosts including Tia Morell Walden, a holistic nutritionist and integrative nutrition health coach who is passionate about educating people from all walks of life on the many benefits of re-tooling their health by focusing on great nutrition and a whole-istic approach to living. </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Tia and Corinna are each experienced podcasters with successful shows. Corinna has been running the Care More Be Better podcast since January of 2021, focusing on regenerative solutions to social problems and the health of our planet. Tia is a co-host on Obsessed with Humans On The Verge of Change where she focuses on giving you the tools you need to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life. </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Tune in each week to deepen your knowledge of nutrition and health, uncover promising new research, and get to know incredible thought leaders in the health and wellness industry. Lean-in to the possibility of a better future and achieve your best health - without compromise. </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">This show is produced and sponsored by Örlö Nutrition. At Örlö, we’re evolving our food systems to produce endless nourishment with positive environmental impact.</span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="background-color: transparent;color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Industrial food systems continue to take more from the planet while producing less nutrition. With the system out of balance and unsustainable, Örlö relies on a scalable, carbon-negative process to grow our polar omega-3 nutrition, helping to advance the food sustainability evolution that the world needs. Through science and technology and with reverence for our planet’s vital ecosystems, we’re cultivating healthier, more impactful omega-3 nourishment with zero environmental impact. In doing so, we’re changing the fate of our future to one where we can live in complete sync with the planet — no sacrifices required. This is why we believe in Nutrition Without Compromise. </span></p>

The energy revolution is coming, and it's all hands on deck. Amplifying the expertise of the leaders in the new energy economy and inviting diverse voices to the table, we'll talk solar power, battery storage and battery alternatives, microgrids, renewable energy, distributed energy architectures, energy policy, energy equity, and all things energy. I'm your host, Amy Simpkins, renewable energy CEO (and Rocket Scientist) and I am passionate about creating sustainable change. I believe that access to electricity is no longer a luxury -- it's a human right. I'm driven by the desire to leave this world better than I found it. I believe in the power of collaboration -- that innovation doesn't happen in a vacuum. And innovation is the only way our planet will survive. Recent natural disaster events impacting access to power, like the Texas Power Crisis during the winter storms of 2021 or the raging California wildfires of 2018-2020, combined with concern over anticipated future events, like a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake in Oregon, have elevated conversations about resilience, independence, and sustainability to new, more urgent heights. If we are truly going to meet the challenges to the energy revolution and to achieve these ideals, we need to bring all minds to the whiteboard. That’s why Power Flow Podcast was born. I've always worked in male-dominated environments. Yet, the more I engage with women, the more I witness very different approaches to innovation, problem solving, and solution implementation. We possess a treasure trove in untapped riches of expertise from female, non-binary, and BIPOC professionals, all relentlessly working to make this new energy future a reality, yet too often unseen and unheard. What does that future look like? Solving the challenges we face in the energy industry can solve intersectional problems for Earth and its residents. A shift from fossil fuels to renewables not only increases sustainability -- an important component of slowing and reversing climate change -- it will also reduce pollution near low-income or racially diverse neighborhoods. A shift to distributed energy improves community resilience through microgrids and minigrids. Community resilience and distributed energy lead to energy equity - ensuring access to clean, reliable energy for all. I began my career in aerospace - yes, as an actual rocket scientist - believing that technical and scientific advancement through the exploration of space would be the ultimate way to change the world. After 10 years of designing, modeling, integrating, and flying spacecraft, I began looking for ways to have a more direct and powerful impact. When I co-founded renewable energy startup muGrid Analytics with my partner, it used all of my gifts and skills from my entire career to do good in the world. The thing is, I see the world as a set of linkages. I can see how everything is connected in a complex web of synergy and interdependence. The further I explored the energy economy, the more I could see its far-reaching impacts for individuals, for the people, for the planet. Join me in a deep dive exploring the solutions clean energy can offer to our earth as we bring more voices to the microphone and more minds to the whiteboard, shining a spotlight on new ideas and perspectives, tapping into the vast expertise and intersectional thinking that's already here. As we thoughtfully consider the tremendous challenges of the energy revolution, we can collaborate to achieve sustainability, equity, and resilience. It’s time to amplify new ideas that can help us innovate more efficiently, with better outcomes, harmonizing the threads of collaboration so we can build the future together.

A podcast dedicated to all things quantitative, ranging from the relevant to the highly irrelevant. Co-hosts Patrick Curran and Greg Hancock talk about serious statistical topics, but without taking themselves too seriously. Think: CarTalk hi-jacked by the two grumpy old guys from the Muppets, grousing about quantitative methods, statistics, and data analysis, all presented to you with the production value of a 6th grade school project. But in a good way.
