Monday, March 20, 7pm EDT: Mitchell’s guest this evening is Don Beck of Spiraldynamics fame. Conceived and led by Dr. Don Beck, a leading global authority on value systems, societal change, and stratified democracy, SDi is an advanced extension and elaboration of the biopsychosocial systems concept originated by the late Dr. Clare W. Graves of Union College, New York, and later developed as Spiral Dynamics – a model that Canada’s Maclean’s Magazine rather grandly dubbed “The Theory that Explains Everything.”
Don has been developing, implementing, and teaching the evolutionary theory of Spiral Dynamics for more than three decades. Beck has elaborated upon the work of his mentor, Clare Graves, to develop a multidimensional model for understanding the evolutionary transformation of human values and cultures. As cofounder of the National Values Center in Denton, Texas, and CEO of the Spiral Dynamics Group, Inc., Beck is employing the Spiral Dynamics model to effect large-scale systems change in and among various sectors and societies of the world. He is the author of Spiral Dynamics: Mastering Values, Leadership & Change, written with Christopher Cowan in 1996. Beck’s long consulting career has taken him to such diverse settings as 10 Downing Street to consult with Tony Blair’s Policy Unit; the south side of Chicago to address the problems faced by inner-city schools; the World Bank to consider the future of Afghanistan; and the boardrooms of major banks, energy companies, airlines, and government agencies. In his 63 trips to South Africa between 1981 and 1988, he had significant impact on political leaders, the business sector, religious leadership, and the general public in order to help bring about the peaceful transition from apartheid to democracy.
Out of his experiences there, Beck wrote The Crucible: Forging South Africa’s Future (1991) with Graham Linscott. Before his work in South Africa, Beck taught for twenty years at the University of North Texas. There he was named Outstanding Professor in 1978, named Honor Professor in 1979, and listed as an “Outstanding Educator in America”in 1980. Beck has also been the team psychologist for The South African Springboks, winners of the 1995 Rugby World Cup, and has been associated with the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, the Texas Rangers (baseball), and the U.S. Olympic Committee for Men’s Track and Field. He writes a “sports values”column for the Dallas Morning News. He makes his home in Denton, Texas.
Mitchell invited Don to a Conference sponsored by the Institute for Cycles Research with some of the leading experts in the field, including Ray Tomes and David Katzmire, in New Mexico .

Wednesday, March 22, 6pm, EST: This evening, Mitchell Rabin takes a look at the positive trends showing up in the world of business through Social Enterprise companies, B Corporations through the increase of humane and eco-friendly business practices, Compassionate and Conscious Capitalism. Despite appearances, there is a significant upsurge in the number of companies which are purpose-driven beyond a single, monetary bottom line and are defining their mission as being of service in numerous, creative ways to serve humanity and Mother Earth.
Due to the fact that government is no longer a reliable partner in improving the lives of its people in any kind of a principled way, all the greater reliance is placed on the private sector to express ethical, eco-sensitive and humane values and policies to drive the creation of a better world for all. From the muddy swamp, a beautiful lotus flower has emerged.
Last week, A Better World aired Mitchell’s interview with Patricia Aburdene, author of Conscious Capitalism and co-author of the Megatrends series (last being Megatrends 2010), which is one of a series Mitchell has done on this vitally important subject.

Improve Joints, Skin & Overall Health at very the Same Time & Build a Business.
Dehydration is one of the largest but largely unrecognized, passed by health problems in our society. According to Dr. Batmangelidj, author of The Body’s Many Cries for Water, dehydration is the cause of most of our diseases. But ironically enough.hydration doesn’t always occur effectively simply by drinking more water. There needs to be the proper constituents in the body for absorption, and these in exact ratio of hyaluronic acid, condroitin sulfate and collagen. These act as a metabolic catalyst for cellular hydration. And each of these tend to ‘dry up’ as we grow older, leading to dehydration, aging, wrinkling skin and both joint pain and lack of mobility and flexibility.
