Winner of the Quintuple Ironman: Olof Dallner
Olof Dallner – WINNER of the Quintuple Ironman. The 12 mile swim, 560 mile bike, and 131 mile run is the distance of 5 Ironmans! WTF? Olof explains what it is like to sleep 6 hours over 4 days while completing (and winning) the worlds toughest endurance event. Olof also has his PhD in Molecular Physiology and is currently a postdoctoral scientist at Rockefeller University, researching the genetics of the hormone Leptin and its role in obesity and metabolism.
“I personally think that humans are better adapted to do things for a long time at a lower speed.”
“Throughout evolution humans had to move over extremely long distances to find food and sustenance. We are more adapted to travel over long distances than even a horse.”
“Sometimes even I can’t comprehend the distance of what I’m doing. But you don’t have to be an elite triathlete to do this – it’s more about experience, knowing yourself, and knowing how to push yourself to keep going.”
What we learn in this episode:
How do you deal with fear of failure?
Can the average person compete in long distance events?
How does the hormone Leptin affect body weight and body composition?
What are some scientific advances we are making now and what do we expect will happen soon regarding the fight against obesity?

It’s estimated that only about 10 percent of K-12 schools teach computer science. Some companies are trying to fill a void in American public education by teaching kids computer programming basics. The push comes amid projections that there will be far more tech sector jobs than computer science graduates to fill them.
A new biography of Edward Snowden lays out the life and motivations of the world’s “most wanted man.”

After all the months and revelations, it is still hard to take on board the full scale and impact of Edward Snowden’s undressing of the N.S.A. The premier spy agency of a vast superpower, stripped in public of its deepest secrets by a 29-year-old high school dropout. Enormous consequences, enormous debate – and the stripping, the leaking, isn’t over yet. He’s called a traitor, he’s called a hero. He may be the world’s most wanted man. He’s still out there. Who is Edward Snowden? This hour On Point: ”The Snowden Files.” A new biography on the life, motivation, and reality now of Edward Snowden.

From Tom’s Reading List
New York Times: The Needles in the Monumental N.S.A. Haystack –”The portrait he creates of Mr. Snowden is a familiar one — a geek and gamer most at home online, who never graduated from high school but whose ‘exceptional I.T. skills’ landed him a job with the Central Intelligence Agency and later as an N.S.A. contractor.”
CNN: Edward Snowden: World’s most wanted man, says new book — “The Guardian is a key player in the Snowden saga, having provided an outlet for the former NSA contractor-turned-whistle-blower to expose what he knew about the U.S. government’s mass surveillance programs. Harding accessed a wealth of inside information, such as this story about how Snowden first connected via e-mail with Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald.”
The Daily Beast: Snowden Keeps Outwitting U.S. Spies – “Some allies of Snowden have speculated that any kind of master file of Snowden documents could only be accessed through a pass code or cryptographic key broken out into pieces controlled by several people in multiple jurisdictions throughout the world. That way. No one government could force a single person to give up access to Snowden’s motherlode.”
