I spoke to Josh Tickell, who is the author of Kiss the Ground: How the Food You Eat Can Reverse Climate Change, Heal Your Body & Ultimately Save Our World, about why he wrote the book, how the food we eat can make a difference, what he learned from the interviews he captured in the book, and his best career advice.
Healthcare in the U.S. is facing a lot of uncertainty due to changing policies and an aging demographic. People over the age of 65 will soon make up 55% of the nation’s population, causing a shortage of 40,800 to 100,000 physicians. Luckily, advances in technologies such as virtual reality, wearable devices, and 5G may provide both an affordable alternative and improved quality of life including better personal care monitoring, more effective treatment, and a helping hand in the operating room.

Tasked with energizing the crowd for the second day of the Sunbelt Builders Show, Nate Holzapfel took the center stage to engage with audience members on “building business relationships.”
Holzapfel is co-founder of The Mission Belt Company, but he’s most famously known for his appearance on ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank,” in which he blew away all the sharks on deck with his work ethic, common-sense approach and sales savvy.
Navy SEALs love telling war stories, and to be fair, they’re pretty great at it. The latest comes from Andy Stumpf, a 17-year Navy SEAL veteran and jumpmaster who is the world record holder for longest distance traversed in a wingsuit (18 miles?!).
This past week, Stumpf joined comedian Bryan Callen and UFC Heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub on their podcast, “The Fighter and the Kid,” to talk about being in the military and jumping out of planes.
And he graced us with an amazing story of secret SEAL operations in an unnamed foreign land that Stumpf calls “a galaxy far, far away.” (It sounds an awful lot like Af-Pak, but what do I know?)
Let’s set the scene: Stumpf and his team of Navy SEALs have to insert themselves … somewhere … undetected. So they decide to jump at high altitude and glide to their target under open canopies under the cover of night.
In the annals of Silicon Valley history, Nolan Bushnell’s name conjures up both brilliant success and spectacular failure. His two landmark achievements were founding Atari in 1972–laying the groundwork for the entire video game industry–and starting Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre in 1977. But there’s another highlight of Bushnell’s bio that has long gone undocumented: pioneer of the high-tech incubator.
In 1981, Bushnell created Catalyst Technologies, a venture-capital partnership designed to bring the future to life by turning his ideas into companies. In the era of the TRS-80, Betamax, and CB radio, startups funded by Catalyst pursued an array of visionary concepts–from interactive TV to online shopping to door-to-door navigation–that created entire industries decades later. “I read science fiction, and I wanted to live there,” Bushnell explains.
