#10: How to Practice Intonation and Make a Beautiful Sound with Alexandra Conunova  

Alexandra Conunova attracted public and critical acclaim when she won First Prize at the Joseph Joachim Violin Competition in Hanover in the autumn 2012. She was praised by the jury for her vivid tone and her highly virtuoso dramatic art and Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung wrote that she "shows with what radiance of tone she is able to endow her music-making. Her interpretations of Bach’s baroque dances are sometimes austere and yet wonderfully cantabile, at other times truly dance-like or – as in the Bourrée – with a high degree of virtuosity".

TLS #70: Turn Your Day Around & How to Say No With Alexandra Franzen  

  Today’s episode is a lively conversation with author, wordsmith, and thought leader, Alexandra Franzen. Alexandra’s website is a go-to resource for me when it comes to finding how to say what isn’t always easy to say. She’s got a wealth of information and soul-filled guidance to share. In today’s show we are covering a wide variety of topics including: getting the most out of our day, scheduling our calendars with intention, amazing books that have changed our lives, and saying no to people in a graceful and respectful way. This show is perfect for anyone looking to listen to a thought-provoking conversation around ways we can live our lives deliberately and peacefully.   [Tweet "“Keep the channel clear.” - Martha Graham"] [Tweet "“Make today count, make today meaningful.

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL FIND OUT ABOUT   Why Alexandra bought a house at age 24, and how she realized that home ownership wasn’t as important for her as she originally thought. The message that flipped one of Alexandra’s least productive days into one of her best days of the year. Why the “Today is not over yet” mentality does not necessarily mean working more. I share Jonathan Field’s 3 baskets theory to help us understand how to get more out of our lives in all areas. Alexandra shares the habit change that has improved her mental clarity and her writing.

88: Cravings, Boundaries, Play, and Pleasure with Alexandra Jamieson  

Growing up outside of Portland, Alexandra describes her childhood as “growing up with hippies.” Always eating healthy, straight out of a garden to be exact, Alex as a young child always craved sugar.

“When I found out that the church down the street served cookies and kool-aid every weekend, I started going to church…by myself, just to have the cookies!” 

By the age of 15, like most teenagers, Alexandra finally got to decide her own diet and what she chose to eat, especially now that she had a job and was making her own money. This continued for about 10 years, until she began to get extremely sick in her mid 20’s.

“I had migraine headaches about 3-4 days a week and put on about 20 lbs. even after the extra college weight.”

The first doctor she visited, wrote her a prescription for a cocktail of different meds, but it wasn't until her second (and different) doctor visit, that they actually found the core of the issues.

“He asked what I had been eating, and gave me a list of foods to eat and a list of foods to avoid. I wanted to cry! The list to avoid was everything I loved.”

It may have been a bottom-point for Alexandra during that time of pain and disappointment, but it turned into a love and passion for food, molding her into what we would call a “Food Junkie!” She attended culinary school at The Natural Gourmet Institute and began diving headfirst into nutritional research, specifically geared towards healing foods. Flashing forward to present day and the (thankfully) healthier Alexandra, she shares the story of how she met her husband, Morgan, and the film they produced together, that not only changed their lives, but the lives of the millions viewers who have ever watched “Super Size Me.” (And if you haven't, I HIGHLY recommend it!) Listen in as Alexandra shares the science behind cravings, the power of healing foods and her extensive amount of nutritional knowledge, that I believe is vital for a healthier happier YOU!

“You cant just take away sugar, you cant just take away the foods that give you that dopamine hit. You have to also add in fun and play and pleasure in equal amounts.”

Going off of what Alexandra said, it’s about taking away AND adding in…it’s called a balanced life!

Die Liebe zum Yoga begann vor fast 20 Jahren in London mit Ashtanga. Alexandra hat bis heute eine Leidenschaft für Menschen und ihre Geschichten in allen Schattierungen. Im Yoga beseelt sie vor allem der ursprüngliche Gedanke von der Integration aller Gegensätze.   Im Rahmen des von Spirit Yoga initierten und finanzierten "Social Project" unterrichtete Alexandra Yoga für einen Verein, bei dem Essgestörte Hilfe finden. Wir haben in unserem Interview über Alexandras Weg, den Schweinehund und Yoga als Verbindung zum eigenen Körper gesprochen. Die Aktion im Verein ist mittlerweile beendet und Alexandra hat mir vor der Aufzeichnung noch erzählt, dass sie vor Kurzem ein Mädchen aus dem Verein in einer offenen Yogaklasse in ihrem Kiez getroffen hast, das war das schönste Geschenk für Alexandra.

Episode 17 // Alexandra Balshøj  

Mød Alexandra Balshøj! Medstifter og partner i karriere- og iværksætternetværket Ladies First. Soon-to-be forfatter. Projektleder hos det kreative bureau Knowtheirname. Og skide-sej powerkvinder med fart over feltet og flere timer i døgnet end de fleste. Jeg er super glad for, at Alexandra tog sig tid til at snik-snakke med mig, og jeg har glædet mig meget til at dele dagens episode med jer. Vi kommer både ind på Alexandras personlige karriererejse, der både har budt på en tur forbi universitet og flere år som selvstændig. I dag arbejder hun som projektleder og i sin fritid jonglerer hun sideløbende en håndfuld passion projects - for som Alexandra selv så smukt forklarede det: "Nogen går til Zumba og andre går til bogprojekt". Som medstifter af et kvindenetværk er Alexandra vant til at forholde sig til spørgsmål om køn og ligestilling, og derfor havde jeg glædet mig til at plukke til hendes viden og holdninger særligt til emnet. For er der overhovedet brug for et netværk kun for kvinder? Har mænd og kvinder ligestilling på arbejdsmarkedet? Og bliver de maskuline værdier stadig ophøjet? Alexandrea valgte i sin tid at skrive speciale om, hvordan vi får flere kvindlige iværksættere, og hun har en kæmpe viden på området, så jeg er sikker på, at I vil få noget ud af vores snak, hvis I finder emnet lige så interessant som jeg.

Alexandras holdning til ligestilling ... hvilke udfordringer man som kvinde kan blive mødt af ... hvordan vi får flere kvindlige iværksættere i danmark ... den stereotype leder og hvorfor, det kan være vanskeligt for kvinder at se sig selv i den rolle ... netværk og ønsket om at blive blive selvstændig ... at tage det skræmmende step fra at være iværksætter til at få et job-job. ... om bogprojektet fra 0-100.

T4B088: Thermomix Cooking School with Alyce Alexandra  

In Episode 88, Alyce Alexandra talks to us about her exclusive Thermomix cooking school, and the way she’s bringing her incredibly useful classes to the world through her new book “Recipes From Our Cooking School: Volume One”. Alyce has given us a copy of her beautiful book that you can win!

Click on the play button at the top or download this in iTunes or on Stitcher Radio (and don’t forget to leave a review - it really makes our day!)

The Alyce Alexandra cooking school runs over 18 different classes, and each class features 13-17 recipes! They have designed their classes for maximum enjoyment of their participants. Lots of yummy taste testing, seeing the creation process, but due to their excellent planning, you also get to see the final product too!

The recipes we discussed in this podcast include:

Yoghurt Panna Cotta:
Make the yoghurt yourself, and then turn it into a delicious panna cotta.

Custard Tart: 
When working with pastry, you want to handle it as little as possible and keep it cold. The Thermomix really helps with that. Use really cold butter and cold water. You don’t want to overwork it, 30 seconds will be enough. If it looks like it is softening at all, put it back in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Salted Caramels and Mars Bar Cheesecake: 
A complicated recipe on the outset, but broken down you actually have three awesome techniques - salted caramel sauce, tempered chocolate and cheesecake! You can hear more about this delicious recipe in Episode 22 of our podcast. Get a copy of the recipe here.

Salmon Linguine:
Again, another recipe that may seem a little complicated, but actually teaches you how to cook pasta, how to steam salmon, how to steam vegetables and then how to combine them into a delicious dinner!

Mini Pavlovas: 
- Ok, here are the tips to help perfect the elusive pavlova…
- There can be no traces of fat / oil in the bowl. Fill with 500g warm water and a splash of white vinegar, then program 5 minutes 80C / Speed 4, butterfly in.
- Don’t touch the egg whites with your fingers.
- Don’t put the egg whites in plastic - clean glass only!
- Work with eggs at room temperature.
- Adding cream of tartar will help stiffen the egg whites by making them more acidic.
- Don’t over whip the egg whites. You’ll know if you have done this as they won’t gleam, they will look aerated and they will weep.
- Add sugar one teaspoon at a time, making sure it is fully incorporate before adding the next teaspoon. Patience is needed!

You can find out more about the Alyce Alexandra cooking school, including the amazing list of classes that you can drool over by clicking on the link.

Here is a cool tip from this podcast... 

When cooking fish and vegetables in the Varoma, wrap them in wet scrunched baking paper so that you can remove it easily, and keep the marinade close to the fish.

#64: Alexandra Strömberg  

Veckans gäst är Alexandra Strömberg, Kundtjänstchef på Klarna där hon leder serviceteamen i Europa. Hon arbetade från början inom HR och rekrytering men har sedan gått över till mer operationella roller och kundservice, där hon verkligen brinner för kundupplevelsen. Alexandra är uppvuxen i en stor familj och är äldst av sex syskon, så att leda och organisera människor är inget nytt för henne. Idag leder hon 240 medarbetare på det spännande bolaget Klarna, men vägen dit har inte varit spikrak. Att hitta sin egen väg har varit en stor drivkraft genom livet och Alexandra flyttade hemifrån redan som 17 åring för att stå på egen ben. Det blir ett spännande samtal där vi pratar om karriären, vikten av sponsorer, motgångar längs vägen och hur hon hanterar tempoväxlingar i livet. Följ med och lyssna och låt dig inspireras av härliga Alexandra!

100%-podden möter Alexandra Rydholm #43  

Hon står på scenen och talar om sorg och död. Alexandra Rydholm bjuder på sin egen livshistoria och sprakar av liv. Det är som att de utmaningar hon mött i sitt eget liv, dels gjort henne till en riktigt levare, en livsbejakare och dels gett henne impulsen att sprida detta budskap till människor som också har erfarenheter av död och stark sorg.

När jag lyssnar på henne tänker jag: Hennes röst är kärlek, hennes varelse är kärlek, denna kvinna har verkligen hittat sätt att hitta livet, hitta inspirationen, finna möjligheterna, där andra möjligen hade valt att ge upp.

Några veckor senare träffas vi på slottet. För mitt inre öga ser jag hur Alexandra Rydholm drar på sig löparskorna och springer iväg för att möta livet, för att skapa en stunds andrum, för att kunna hantera det kaos som ibland omger henne.

Du får möta Alexandra Rydholm i ett samtal om livet, vad som driver henne och hur det är att vara en handikappsmamma. Kanske du får inspiration att antingen lyssna på henne när hon turnerar landet runt och berättar om sorg och död, kanske du får inspiration till att lära dig mer om hur du möter personer i psykisk ohälsa ... eller så kanske du bara njuter en stund av att möta en kvinna som sprakar av liv.

Här kan du läsa mer om Alexandra Rydholm

Här kan du läsa mer om första hjälpen vid psykisk ohälsa.

Detta är det 43:e avsnittet av #100-procentpodden. Jag fascineras över vilka spännande möten detta projekt ger mig ... och dig. Det är så härligt att välja att möta människor i närvaro och nyfiket lyssna på deras tankar om livet, kärleken och det som är viktigt för just den person som befinner sig nära min mikrofon.

Jag driver ännu projektet helt idéellt så koppla gärna samman mig med någon eller några som kan vara intresserade av att sponsra eller bidra på något annat sätt.

Det går utmärkt att lyssna på #100procentpodden här, men det allra bästa är om du väljer att ladda ner och prenumerera på den i din podcastapp (som är gratis att ladda ner om du inte har en) så kan du lyssna precis när du vill i din smarta mobil eller surfplatta. Då får du veta när nya avsnitt kommer och kan bläddra igenom dem som redan har sänts... och lyssna på människor som väcker något i dig.

Då och då gör jag specialare av #100procentpodden. Det finns avsnitt på engelska och så uppstår en del andra överraskningar också.

Här kan du lyssna på mitt sommarprogram från 2015.

Avsnitt 22 - Alexandra, om kampen och att berätta om sin barnlöshet.  

Att avslöja för vänner och familj att det är svårt att bli gravid kan för många vara oerhört tungt och att berätta om sin kamp kan ta tid eller man kanske aldrig berättar.

I det här poddavsnittet berättar Alexandra om sin resa fram till idag. En bit på väg i sin infertilitetsresa så började Alexandra att gör en videoblogg om sitt liv och om sin kamp. Att både ha en en minnesbank och samtidigt stödja andra i sin barnlöshetsresa är drivkrafter som givit Alexandra motivation till bloggen. Även i det här avsnittet så delar Alexandra med sig av sina erfarenheter av att vara ung och barnlös, om att göra hormonstimuleringar, IVF, frysförsök och om att få missfall.

Alexandra Horowitz – The mysteries of human perception. In this episode we speak with author and cognitive scientist Alexandra Horowitz on what it means to be attentive. In her most recent book, On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes, Alexandra shows us how to see the spectacle of the ordinary. In this book, Alexandra goes on...

338 – Dr. Alexandra Widmer – Stark und Alleinerziehend – es kann auch einfach gehen  


Alexandra ist Ärztin, Psychotherapeutin und seit einem halben Jahr auch Bloggerin und Podcasterin. Sie ist allein erziehend mit 2 kleinen Töchtern. Alexandra unterstützt online allein erziehende Frauen und Männer einen Burnout vorzubeugen und zu wieder mehr Energie und Freude zu gelangen.

 

Mein Erfolgszitat

„Fange an, bevor du bereit bist.“
Und deines Tom: „Wer will findet Wege“ ;)

 

Mein größter Fehler war...

Für mich gibt es keine Fehler, sondern eigentlich nur Erfahrungen. Bezogen auf mein Projekt "Stark und Alleinerziehend" kann ich noch keine Fehler entdecken. Bezogen auf meinen Beruf würde ich sagen, dass ich zu denjenigen gehöre, die glauben noch immer mehr lernen zu müssen, bevor sie damit an die Öffentlichkeit geht.

 

Ein entscheidender Aha-Moment meines Lebens war....

Das war in diesem Jahr, als ich merkte, dass es so wahnsinnig viele Alleinerziehende gibt, die es bewegt, was ich schreibe und sie sich gesehen fühlen. Ein weiterer toller Moment war jetzt im Oktober, wo mich ein großer deutscher Buchverlag um ein Buch für Alleinerziehende gebeten hat. Das war sehr besonders und macht mich glücklich.

 

An meinem aktuellen Business begeistert mich besonders...

Ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich noch nie zuvor so gut mein fachliches Wissen und meine persönlichen Erfahrungen miteinander vereinigen konnte. Es gibt viel zu wenig strukturierte präventive psychische Hilfe für Alleinerziehende und ich möchte einen Teil dazu beitragen, dass sich das in Zukunft ändern wird.

 

Ein für mich sehr wertvolles Internet-/ Business-Tool/ Software ist...

Es gibt eine blaue Achtsamkeitskeits- App. Mit einem weißen Männchen darauf! Einfach top!

Hello, My Name Is Awesome by Alexandra Watkins | Episode 045  

In this episode Alexandra Watkins shares her book, Hello My Name is Awesome, where she teaches you how to create brand names that stick.

In her book, Watkins delivers the real insights into naming a business and clever ways to create a slogan so entrepreneurs can learn the proper techniques for branding business.

This book is perfect for the entrepreneur or small business owner who does not have the budget to hire the services of a branding agency, but has the will power to learn how to do it themselves.

About Alexandra Watkins:

“I am a self-taught person who didn’t go to college. When I was in eighth grade I knew I wanted to be in advertising and I was able to talk my way into an internship with an ad agency. I eventually landed at Ogilvy and Mather. I talked my way into becoming a namer at Lander while on a Match.com date. I am an interesting person and traveled to more than 45 countries including Libya, Zimbabwe and Cuba.

I did not want to write a book, my parents are authors and I know that writing a book is a lot of work for not always a lot of money. I got an e-mail from a publishing company asking if I had ever thought about writing a book. I didn’t jump on it right away. I struggled with if I wanted to take all that time writing a book. I deliberated about three weeks over it until I finally decided to do it and I am so glad I did! About 90% of people who contact my company can’t afford us and I thought the book would be something that they could get and help them on their own.” – Alexandra Watkins

"Farmed Salmon Arrive in Ottawa (Norway, British Columbia VII)"  
www.cjly.net/deconstructingdinner/061010.htm

Over the past year, Deconstructing Dinner has spent an increasing amount of time focusing on the discussions that take place on food and farming within Canada's parliamentary committees. Today, we visit with a previously unexplored committee on the show - the Standing Committee on Fisheriers and Oceans, where, in the past few months, the subject of salmon farming has been a focus of attention.

Among the many issues addressed within the Committee, host Jon Steinman deconstructs dialogue that took place on resistance among sea lice to the anti-parasitic drug - SLICE. The drug is an open-net cage salmon farmer's primary and most effective control to keep lice levels down and reduce their threat to juvenile wild salmon. Sea lice experts around the world believe it's only a matter of time when sea lice in British Columbia will develop resistance to the drug. Despite a graph released by the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture and Lands that is suggestive to some biologists of possible drug resistance, government officials have exhibited their own resistance to these said warning signs.

On another front, Steinman also deconstructs the federal Department of Fisheries & Oceans (DFO) - a government body who receives a lot of criticism among marine conservation groups for what they and the Attorney General of Canada believe of the Department's dual mandate is a conflict of interest - a mandate to protect wild salmon and promote salmon aquaculture. Deconstructing Dinner uncovers some glaring mis and disinformation on a DFO web page that lends a more tangible example of these seemingly confusing and conflicting roles of the DFO.

Mark Sheppard - senior aquatic animal health veterinarian, British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture & Lands (Courtenay, BC) - The B.C. government supports the development of the aquaculture industry. While the B.C. government has overseen the industry since the federal government allocated responsibility in 1988, that regualtory regime is now in a transition to federal authority following the B.C. Supreme Court case Alexandra Morton et al vs the A.G. of British Columbia and Marine Harvest Canada.

Alexandra Morton - biologist, Raincoast Research Society (Echo Bay, BC) - While studying orca whales up until the 1990s, Alexandra watched as the salmon farming industry appeared in the Broughton Archipelago where she calls home. As she observed the arrival of industrial salmon farms, the whales she studied disappeared. She believed the cause was salmon farms, and when 10,000 pages of letters to all levels of government failed to elicit meaningful response, Alexandra realized that she would have to scientifically prove that salmon farming had driven out the whales and caused epidemic outbreaks of bacteria, viral and parasitic infections in wild salmon. By partnering with international scientists and in some cases commercial fishermen, Alexandra has documented the loss of the whales, thousands of escaped farm salmon, lethal outbreaks of sea lice, and antibiotic resistance near salmon farms.

Lawrence Dill - professor emeritus, department of biological sciences, Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC) - Dill's major research interests are in the development and testing of cost-benefit models of behaviour, and experimental studies of the decision rules used by animals to ensure adaptive behaviour in various contexts. The emphasis is on understanding how behaviours maximize individual fitness; this is achieved by experimental analyses of the benefits and costs of the various behavioural alternatives available to the animal. Dill studies marine invertebrates,

"Rally for Wild Salmon: "Fish Farms Out" (Norway, British Columbia VI)"

On May 8, 2010, Deconstructing Dinner descended upon the grounds of the Legislature of British Columbia in Victoria where one of the largest rallies of its kind was taking place. The rally was organized as part of the 2.5 week long "Get Out Migration" calling for the removal of open-net salmon farms along the B.C. coast. Between April 21 and May 8, biologist Alexandra Morton travelled from the community of Echo Bay in the Broughton Archipelago and proceeded on foot down Vancouver Island where hundreds of supporters joined her as they approached the BC Legislature. An estimated 4,000 people attended the rally.

"Norway, British Columbia IV (Farming Atlantic Salmon in the Pacific)"  
www.cjly.net/deconstructingdinner/070909.htm

In October 2008, host Jon Steinman spoke with wildlife biologist Alexandra Morton who was in the midst of taking the Province of British Columbia and Marine Harvest Canada to B.C. Supreme Court. Morton was challenging the ongoing regulation of the industry by the Province, arguing that the Province is not constitutionally permitted to do so. Instead, it was argued that the Federal government is responsible for regulating salmon farms.

Justice Christopher Hinkson came to his decision on February 9, 2009. Morton was victorious. Deconstructing Dinner invites Morton back onto the show to share the outcomes of that decision and what has transpired since then. Also lending their thoughts to the B.C. Supreme Court decision is Otto Langer - a former federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) biologist who applauds the decision but remains highly skeptical of the DFO's capability to now manage the farmed salmon fishery.

The episode also examines a perplexing letter sent to Deconstructing Dinner not long after our January 2009 episodes. As part of those January episodes, Deconstructing Dinner shared recordings from our October 2008 tour of a salmon farm site and hatchery owned by Marine Harvest - the largest salmon farming company in the world. It appears the company was not happy with those broadcasts and subsequently sent a letter to us outlining a number of rather odd requests.

Guests/Voices

Otto Langer - former Biologist, Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) (Richmond, BC) - Otto is a 32-year veteran of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada who quit his job in 2001 after becoming unhappy with the direction the department was heading.

He is considered one of Canada�s leading authorities on the issue of open net cage salmon farming. Otto also authored a chapter in the book, "Stain Upon the Sea: The Battle for the West Coast Salmon Fishery" (2001).

Alexandra Morton - Scientist/Researcher, Raincoast Research Society (Echo Bay, BC) - While studying orca whales up until the 1990s, Alexandra watched as the salmon farming industry appeared in the Broughton Archipelago where she calls home.

"Norway, British Columbia III (Farming Atlantic Salmon in the Pacific)"  

www.cjly.net/deconstructingdinner/012209.htm

In October 2008, host Jon Steinman was toured around a salmon farm along with delegates of the 2008 conference of the Canadian Farm Writers Federation. The tour was sponsored by the Province of British Columbia's Ministry of Agriculture & Lands and the British Columbia Salmon Farmers Association (BCSFA).

The farm is owned by Marine Harvest Canada and located off the shore of East Thurlow Island - about a 45-minute boat ride from Campbell River, BC. The farm is home to 500,000 Atlantic salmon.

On this part III of a multi-part series on salmon farming along the BC coast, Steinman poses some probing questions to the tour guides.

Helping balance the positive and promotional role of the BCSFA and the Province, the episode will also hear from Alexandra Morton of the Raincoast Research Society. Morton is one of the most vocal critics of open-net salmon farms and played a pivotal role in helping introduce the long-standing and contested debate of whether or not salmon farms are harming wild salmon populations.

Morton was given the opportunity to respond to the comments made on the tour by the guides. Of interest are the number of startling discrepancies that were discovered between what conference delegates were told versus what Morton has discovered through her research.

It was a timely tour to embark upon as it was only days earlier when Morton was in BC Supreme Court in Vancouver challenging the legal and constitutional authority of the Province to regulate salmon farms in the marine environment. Morton, alongside a group of petitioners, argue that the regulating of salmon farms in BC waters should constitutionally be within the purvue of the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. This episode will introduce this case, which is currently awaiting a decision.
