The Effects of Biodynamic Farming on the Environment and Food Quality

By Dr. Mercola

Eating real, nonprocessed food is the key to sustaining good health, but even when it comes to whole food, its quality is largely determined by how it was grown. Certified organic food is recommended to avoid toxic contaminants such as pesticides. But even organic foods may be lacking in important nutrients if grown in nutrient-poor soils. To truly build good topsoil, you have to implement regenerative farming methods, many of which are not automatically required by organic standards.

Biodynamic certification, which is a step above organic, is the topic of today’s discussion with Elizabeth Candelario, managing director for Demeter,1 a global Biodynamic certification agency. Candelario spent most of her career in the wine industry. While she was working as a marketing director for a winery in Sonoma County, the winery decided to transition from conventional to Biodynamic farming, which is how her interest in Biodynamics began.

“Here in the United States, the wine industry was the early adopter in Biodynamic,” Candelario says. “The reason for that was really twofold. One is winemakers couldn’t help but notice that the best wines in the world were coming from Biodynamic vineyards, wineries like Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and Zind-Humbrecht. Another reason is that a lot of wineries, at least back in the day, were family-owned …

You had winery families that were interested in passing that winery down from one generation to the next. The best example of that is the Frey Vineyards up in Mendocino County, where they literally have four generations of family living [there] … They were really thinking about the ecological aspect of what they were doing and how they were farming. So, it wasn’t unique that the winery I worked at chose [Biodynamic] …

That experience — I not only witnessed the transformation of the estate, but I also witnessed a transformation in the people we were working with — was, for me, emerging between my career [in] the wine industry and my interest in social mission … I joined Demeter about almost 10 years ago.”

The History of Biodynamic Farming

Organic is well-known in the U.S. market. Biodynamic is a fairly unknown concept, although its history spans back nearly nine decades. Biodynamic farming is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture initially developed by Austrian scholar Rudolf Steiner,2 Ph.D., (1861-1925).

It’s an approach that can provide farsuperior harvests compared to conventional chemical-based agriculture, while simultaneously healing the Earth. As organic farming, the concept of biodynamic emerged in response to the industrialization of agriculture. Candelario explains:

“Steiner was a polyglot. He was a very smart man. He was interested in economics and social systems. He’s most known here in the U.S. as the founder of Waldorf education. Toward the end of his life, he was approached by a group of farmers that were very concerned about what they were seeing on their farms. This was back in the 1920s …

After World War I, chemical companies got very crafty repurposing nitrogen that had been used to make bombs as fertilizer, and nerve gas as synthetic pesticides. They had stockpiles of these chemicals and realized they had application on farms. This was around the time of the industrialization of the manufacturing model. The idea was that you wanted to produce the highest output at the lowest cost.

It’s not surprising that that kind of industrial view also influenced the way people started thinking about their farms. This idea of importing things from the outside, these natural resources, to increase production really mirrored that industrial model. But what was happening was that farmers were really beginning to notice that their seeds weren’t germinating.

Their animals weren’t as healthy. The food wasn’t as good. Because of that, they approached Steiner and asked him for his perspective on what was happening on their farms. He answered them in what is now referred to as “The Agriculture Course or The Foundations for a Renewal of Agriculture” — a series of lectures he delivered.”

The Farm as a Living Organism

Steiner’s view was as simple as it was revolutionary. He said, “You need to stop thinking of your farms as factories and envision them as living organisms — self-contained, self-sustaining, following the cycles of nature, and able to create their own health and vitality out of the living dynamics of the farm.” Seventeen years later, Lord Northbourne coined the term “organic” based on Steiner’s view of the farm as an organism. So, Biodynamic is really the origin of organic farming.

Both focus on bringing life back to the soil and avoiding the decimation of the topsoil with synthetic fertilizers, which are toxic to microbial life. Demeter was started by a small number of farmers who attended Steiner’s agriculture course. “They decided that what he had talked about was so important that they wanted to codify it in an agricultural standard,” Candelario says.

To ensure the standard would maintain its integrity in the marketplace, they decided to develop a strict certification program. Demeter was formed in 1928 in Germany and remains the oldest ecological certification organization in the world.

Even back then, they had a formal certification process and a certification label, Candelario explains. While largely unknown in the U.S., Demeter is well-recognized within Central Europe. In Germany, 10 percent of the organic farmland is Biodynamic. There are even Demeter stores.

I’ve fully embraced the Biodynamic concept and am currently in the process of converting the Mercola line of products from organic to Biodynamic certified and locating sources of raw materials to do that. Many are still not available within the U.S., but we’re in the slow process of conversion. One of the Biodynamic products we’ll release this fall comes from an Egyptian farm called SEKEM.

“SEKEM just celebrated their 40th anniversary and their commitment to social mission is incredible,” Candelario notes. “Because of the values implicit in Biodynamic agriculture, you see lots of examples of projects that have a huge social mission component.”

Organic Versus Biodynamic

One of the easiest ways to grasp the concept of biodynamic is to think of it in the context of organic standards. While similar, there are distinct differences between the two standards. Organic standards are set by the National Organic Program (NOP); Demeter sets the standards for Biodynamic. Candelario explains:

“Organic is really about what you don’t do. In organic, you don’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. You don’t use genetically modified organism (GMO) seed. You do everything you can to avoid GMO contamination; no sewer sludge on the farm and no irradiation of products.

What’s happening with the burgeoning interest in organic, which is a really good thing, is there’s a lot of pressure on that standard, so you have products coming into the market that do the minimum of what is required, sitting right next to another product that’s also labeled organic that does much more.

Biodynamics fundamentally maintains the core principle that the farm is a living organism. We start by saying that the organic standard is the base to the Demeter standard. If a farm is Demeter certified, it means that it’s met the organic standard, even if it’s not certified organic. But then, the standard is much broader, maintaining that idea of the farm as a closed system. You look for solutions to disease, pest and weed control to come out of the farm system itself.”

Biodynamic Standards Require Farm to be a Self-Sustaining Whole

In organic, a 10,000-acre conventional farm that does not use prohibited materials on 1,000 of its acres can get organic certification for those 1,000 acres. To qualify for Biodynamic certification, the entire farm must meet the standard, as the whole farm is viewed as an integrated living organism. Ten percent of that farmland must also be set aside for cultivation of biodiversity. This can be accomplished by leaving natural oak groves or waterways, or it could be created through insectaries and hedgerows.

“If a farmer is having a fertility issue, in conventional farming, a conventional farmer might say, ‘Let’s just bring in those synthetic fertilizers.’ An organic farmer might say, ‘Let me look and see what organic fertilizers I can bring into the farm.’ That’s a step better, but you’re still mining a natural resource and importing it to the farm. A biodynamic farmer’s going to say, ‘What is it about my farm system that isn’t capable of delivering the fertility that my crops need?’

They answer that from a biodynamic toolbox, which may be green manures, composting, cover cropping and incorporating animals. The mindset is quite different. There are eight Biodynamic preparations. They’re made from materials a farmer can find on the farm. They’re used as compost amendments, foliar sprays and soil amendments.

In organic, there’s just one processing standard for all products. In Biodynamic, there are 16 processing standards. The intention is to allow the integrity of the agricultural ingredients to define the finished product, so you have high content of Biodynamic ingredients with minimal processing. It’s a real foodie standard.”

Having animals integrated on the farm is a core principle of Biodynamic farming, but it doesn’t end there. Great focus is also placed on animal welfare. While it’s possible to gain Biodynamic certification for a farm that does not raise livestock, it’s actually quite difficult to achieve optimal soil health without the integration of herbivores. They’re really an integral part of a self-sustaining system.

The Certification Process

The certification process itself is very similar to organic. There is a base standard that needs to be met, regardless of size (and there is no size limitation). A farm or brand that wants to get a product certified submits an application. There is an inspection of the farm or the processing facility to ensure that the standard is met, and each farm or facility is re-inspected on an annual basis.

The certification cost is also very similar to organic, ranging from $250 to $750. Annual inspection costs are minimized to the extent that it’s possible by pooling inspections in one geographic area, allowing members to share the cost of an inspector.

Moving Forward

A catch-22 preventing Biodynamic from spreading faster is the shortage of certified products in the national marketplace. Most Demeter members are small family farms that only sell locally or regionally. “We realized we really needed to focus on getting some national brands to get products in the market so that we could use those products to educate consumers,” Candelario says. Five years ago, Demeter started working with Whole Foods to select companies and brands whose values aligned with Biodynamic.

demeter

“[We’d] approach them to say, ‘Would you consider bringing these Biodynamic products into the market before consumers even know what it is?’

It’s a wonderful story because we now have 25, some of the leading national brands — soon to be joined by you as well — like Lundberg Family Farms, Lakewood Juice, The Republic of Tea, that have worked really hard and invested a lot to bring these products into the market.

I would say the supply chain understands Biodynamic — the brands we’ve talked to, the retailers and other important players. But we’re just on the verge of really doing the consumer education that we need to do.”

The key, and the intention of this interview, is to help you understand and recognize the importance of the Demeter certification label. That’s really going to be the new platinum standard for high-quality, nutrient-dense food. While many Biodynamic ingredients must currently be sourced overseas, from communities like SEKEM in Egypt, the goal is to grow most of these ingredients right here in the U.S. for American-based brands.

Healing the Planet Through Agriculture

As noted by Candelario, the vision of Demeter is to heal the planet through agriculture, and we can do that by transitioning farming from conventional to organic and, ultimately, to Biodynamic. At present, the marketplace is being used to drive the adoption of Biodynamics on the farm, which is why it’s so important for consumers to understand its principles, its benefits, and to start asking for certified products. Demand is ultimately what drives change the fastest.

In the case of Biodynamic, there are many reasons to support it. Foodists and those seeking optimal health will want it because it’s a mark of superior quality and nutrition. Animal-rights activists would be wise to support it as it places strong emphasis on animal welfare. Environmentalists will want it because of its healing impact on the Earth and normalizing effect on weather.

“Paul Hawkin just wrote a book called ‘Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming.’ I really recommend it. In that book, he talks about how, in order to address climate change, we need to do two things. We need to address emissions.

That is the burning of fossil fuels, the agricultural activities that actually release carbon into the air. The other half of the equation is we have to sequester carbon. We have to pull that excess carbon that’s in the air back down and into the soil.

Guess what happens when we pull carbon out of the air? It happens every day when the sun is shining. That’s what photosynthesis does. It takes that carbon from the air and pushes it down into the soil. Not only are we sequestering carbon, we’re making more healthy and nutritious food.

In conventional [farming], sequestering carbon doesn’t happen because conventional fertilizers stop that process where the plant is basically rewarded by the microbiota in the soil to pull that carbon out of the air.

Synthetic fertilizers kill the microbiota in the soil. You don’t have that carbon drawdown that you’re looking for in conventional agriculture. By definition, the more carbon you put in the soil, the more you’re building a resilient soil. You’re building a water conservative soil. You’re building the potential to have incredibly healthy food.”

Soil Is an Incredibly Efficient Carbon Sink

Measuring the organic content of soil is an easy way to assess soil health. Most conventional farms have an organic content below 2 percent. Virgin Midwestern prairie used to be 7 to 8 percent. Good soil has a deep black color, because carbon is black; it’s rich and actually smells good.

As noted by Candelario, a French initiative called the 4 Per 1,000 Initiative3 found that if we were to increase the carbon (the organic matter) in all agricultural land around the world by a mere 0.4 percent per year, the annual increase of CO2 in the atmosphere would be halted, because so much carbon would be drawn from the atmosphere.

Steiner’s Soil Amendments

One facet of Biodynamic farming that might raise a few eyebrows is Steiner’s soil amendments, some of which may sound fairly mystical at first. For example, one involves packing dung into a cow’s horn that is then buried during a specific moon phase.

The use of these kinds of Biodynamic preparations is a requirement of the Demeter standard, and while they may sound strange, there’s solid support for their use. (Farmers who for whatever reason cannot make these preparations can purchase them from Josephine Porter Institute4 or Biodynamic Source.5)

You can understand the preparations on a very practical level,” Candelario says. ”There is preparation 500, which is taking cow manure, putting it in a cow horn and burying it over the winter. There is preparation 501, which is taking silica, putting that in a cow horn and burying it over the summer. And then preparation 502 through 508, which are basically herbs — chamomile and valerian — those are used as compost amendment.

[The] analogy I like to use is to think about a sourdough starter … It’s a catalyst. And when you think about the idea of the farmer not being dependent on chemicals … and saying, ‘How can I affect the fertility of my farm, the health of my compost pile, just from the materials I can find on my farm?’ These materials were things that farmers already had on their farms.

[Let’s] talk about the 500 — First of all, putting it under the ground in the winter creates a constant temperature. It’s the refrigerator where that cow manure can age. When you pull it up and you pull that out on the counter, it smells like chocolate. It’s this beautiful material.

It’s put in water. It’s dynamitized by creating a vortex; really stirring it, and then it’s spread on the soil. It’s sprayed as a tea. [You use] one cow horn’s worth of manure per acre. We have research on our website that shows increased microbial life in the soil based on that. That’s really not surprising when you think about it. The silica is used as a foliar spray.”

More Information

As organic standards are becoming increasingly watered-down, there’s an intensifying need for a more robust standard that cannot easily be bastardized. The USDA Organic label simply does not represent regenerative agriculture, and it’s important to realize this. Many organic farms are not even using cover crops, let alone integrating holistic herd management. Biodynamic certification fills this need, and really surpasses even the most stringent organic standards ever devised.

Again, key features of Biodynamic are the facts that the entire farm must qualify; it must operate as a self-sustaining whole; a portion of the land must be set aside for biodiversity; and animal welfare is addressed. I am actually in the process of converting the vacant lot next to my home to become certified Biodynamic.

For more details, please see Demeter-USA.org. You’ll find the standards listed in the “For Farmers” section. The website also provides a directory of certified farms and brands. This directory can also be found on BiodynamicFood.org. Demeter’s U.S.-based sister organization, the Biodynamic Association, provides a lot of educational material as well, including an interactive Biodynamic webinar series, video and audio lectures, and a quarterly Biodynamics Journal. There’s also an international Biodynamic Association.

I really think there’s a clarion call right now, especially for the natural food industry, to focus on regenerative and Biodynamic agriculture. Because at the end of the day, Biodynamic farms are uniquely suited to address carbon sequestration in a way that other industries are not. The good news is that consumers have tremendous power when it comes to driving this change. Every time you shop for food, you’re voting for one agricultural system or another, so make deliberate, intentional choices.

Savory Chicken and Veggie Muffins

Recipe by Pete Evans

 

Muffins are enjoyed by people all over the world, and are
distinguished by the lack of yeast in their dough when baked.[i]
However, I generally don’t recommend foods that use grains because they can
lead to a host of health problems due to their gluten content.[TNAS1] 

 

So how can you enjoy muffins in a healthy, enjoyable manner?
In this recipe, renowned chef Pete Evans, who I partnered with in my upcoming “Fat
for Fuel Ketogenic Cookbook,” shows you how to make muffins more interesting by
using a calculated mix of meat, vegetables and spices. If you’re just starting
to adopt the ketogenic
diet
, this is the perfect dish because it combines healthy fats and protein
in a delicious package.

 

Ingredients:

·        
1 1/3 pounds of free-range
chicken
thighs, minced

·        
5 free-range organic eggs

·        
1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut
oil
, plus extra for greasing (melted)

·        
1/3 pound of free-range rindless bacon, diced

·        
Handful of silver beet or spinach, chopped

·        
2 scallions, finely chopped

·        
1/2 pound pumpkin, diced into 1/2-inch
cubes

·        
2 garlic cloves

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

 

Procedure:

1.      
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a
12-cup muffin tin with coconut oil and set aside until needed.

2.      
Place the diced pumpkin on a greased baking
tray, sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then drizzle with
1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Roast in the oven for about 12 minutes or until
tender. Set aside and allow to cool.

3.      
Heat the frying pan with the remaining coconut
oil over medium heat. Add the bacon and fry for two to three minutes until
slightly golden, then add the garlic and scallions and cook for another minute.

through the mince mixture. Spoon the mixture evenly into the muffin tin.

9.      
Bake for 25 minutes until the muffins are firm
and cooked through.

10.  
Remove from the tin and serve with some aioli on
the side and some raw or cooked veggies of your choice.

 

Healthy
[TNAS2] Fats From Coconut Oil and Free-Range Eggs
Make This a Ketogenic Diet-Friendly Treat

 

The essential component of the ketogenic diet is healthy
fat, which should be your main source of fuel from now on. Research has shown
that beneficial fats burn longer and healthier compared to sugar. In addition, healthy
fat plays an important role in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E
and K. Without healthy fat, these nutrients won’t be absorbed as much and your
health may suffer as a result.

 

One of the easiest ways you can add healthy fat into your
diet is by using coconut oil in your cooking. It’s a product with diverse
applications, goes well with most dishes and has some unique benefits of its
own, such as providing a boost in energy and strengthening your immune system
by helping eliminate harmful microbes in your system, thanks to its
medium-chain triglycerides. The ketones produced by coconut oil may also help
promote healthy brain function because it is a healthier source of fuel
compared to sugar and carbohydrates.

 

On the other hand, pastured eggs from free-range chickens contain
omega-3 fatty acids that
may bring potential benefits to your health. Research has shown that they may
provide body-wide benefits, such as:

 

Fighting inflammation[ii]

Improving sleep[iii]

Aiding in the treatment of mental
disorders[iv],[v]

Fighting age-related mental decline[vi]

Reducing the risk of heart
disease[vii]

Improving eye health[viii]

Boosting skin health[ix]

Improving bone and joint health[x],[xi]

 

 

Pumpkin
[TNAS3] Helps Keep the Muffins Together

 

It may seem odd to use vegetables when making baked goods,
but this is actually a great way to inject new life into your cooking. Pumpkin
acts as the flour in this recipe, and helps hold everything together. Moreover,
it has a great taste that blends well with the other ingredients.

 

Pumpkin is rich in fiber, a dietary component of vegetables
that plays an important role in maintaining proper health. For one, it helps
increase the size and bulk of your stools while softening them at the same
time. This helps normalize bowel movements. Furthermore, fiber can help
maintain healthy weight, because it helps you feel full longer, thereby
preventing you from overeating.[xii]

Bacon
[TNAS4] and Chicken Provide Protein to Your Body

 

Protein is an essential component of every cell in your body
and plays different roles, such as building and repairing tissue, and producing
enzymes, hormones and other chemicals.[xiii]
Needless to say, getting sufficient amounts of it is important for proper
biological functions, and one of the best sources of it is chicken meat.[xiv]
When purchasing chicken, make sure that it is pasture-raised and
antibiotic-free. This ensures that the product you’re consuming doesn’t have
any harmful toxins and microbes that may expose you to foodborne illness.

 

Bacon, on the other hand, adds a layer of juiciness to the
dish because of its very iconic flavor. For those who enjoy bacon, this muffin
recipe is sure to be a new favorite for you and your guests. Aside from
protein, it’s a beneficial source of healthful saturated and monounsaturated
fat, such as oleic oil and palmitoleic acid. Furthermore, it has phosphatidyl
choline, a potent antioxidant, and fat-soluble vitamin D.

 

However, make sure that your bacon comes from a trusted
source and is cured using time-tested traditional methods. In the same way that
you should be careful where you get your chicken, the same should apply to pork.
If it is pasture-raised and fed with natural, healthy feeds, it can be part of
a nutritious diet.

 

Enjoy These Muffins, but Keep Your Protein Intake in Check

 

While the dish contains healthy amounts of beneficial fats,
it contains generous amounts of protein as well due to the chicken and bacon.
In light of this, I recommend that you consume these muffins in moderation
because too much protein can trigger aging and cancer.

 

Ideally, people should limit their protein intake to 1 gram
per kilogram of lean body mass. Going higher than this can further stimulate
your mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a pathway responsible for deciding
whether cells should replicate now or stay alive to split in the future when
nutrients are more plentiful.

Jewish President of Rio 2016 Olympics Arrested for Corruption

President of the Rio 2016 Olympic Committee arrested amid investigation into vote-buying scheme to bring the Olympic Games to South America.

8 October 2017

ARUTZ SHEVA 7 (JTA) — The Jewish president of the Rio 2016 Olympic Committee was arrested amid an investigation into a vote-buying scheme to bring the Olympic Games to South America for the first time.

Carlos Arthur Nuzman, who also is the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee and an honorary International Olympic Committee member, would be a central figure in channeling $2 million to Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal who helped secure votes when Rio was picked as a venue by the IOC in 2009. Nuzman was arrested on Thursday on charges of corruption, money laundering and participating in a criminal operation.

Three of the top officials of the Rio 2016 Organizing Committee were Jewish. Leonardo Gryner, former chief operating officer, also was arrested on the same charges. Chief executive officer Sidney Levy, who managed a $2.2 billion budget, was Nuzman’s other deputy.

Brazilian authorities have said the behind-the-scenes dealings to win the vote amounted to a “criminal organization,” led by Sergio Cabral, the former governor of Rio de Janeiro who has been jailed on a different corruption conviction. Nuzman, 75, has tried to hamper the investigation by regularizing assets allegedly gained with illicit money. […]

San Diego’s Deadly Hepatitis A Outbreak Turns ‘Statewide Epidemic’ As ‘Outbreak Could Last Years’

By Tyler Durden | 11 October 2017

ZERO HEDGE — A few weeks ago we highlighted the staggering outbreak of Hepatitis A in San Diego that had infected 400 people and killed more than a dozen.  The outbreak was first identified in early Marchaccording to the county, and declared a public health emergency in September.

But, as the LA Times points out, the hepatitis A outbreak that started in San Diego is now on the verge of reaching statewide epidemic status, as cases have spread through homeless tent cities all the way north to Sacramento.

 California’s outbreak of hepatitis A, already the nation’s second largest in the last 20 years, could continue for many months, even years, health officials said Thursday.

At least 569 people have been infected and 17 have died of the virus since November in San Diego, Santa Cruz and Los Angeles counties, where local outbreaks have been declared.

Dr. Monique Foster, a medical epidemiologist with the Division of Viral Hepatitis at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told reporters Thursday that California’s outbreak could linger even with the right prevention efforts.

“It’s not unusual for them to last quite some time — usually over a year, one to two years,” Foster said.

Hepatitis A is commonly transmitted through contaminated food. The only outbreak in the last 20 years bigger than California’s occurred in Pennsylvania in 2003, when more than 900 people were infected after eating contaminated green onions at a restaurant.

California’s outbreak, however, is spreading from person to person, mostly among the homeless community. […]

Poor Man’s Split the Positive Battery Swapper System by RS Stafford

POOR-MAN-3-BATTERY-COVER-3D-TEST-2-768x1014 Technical Presentations ESTC 2017: H2 Global, QEG, Poor Man’s Battery Swapper…At last year’s conference, Peter Lindemann demonstrated a Bedini SSG energizer that produced a lot of mechanical work all weekend and the batteries stayed charged up!

It worked beautifully and was done with an automated circuit that rotates the batteries in a certain way but most people do not have the know-how to be able to build that circuit.

At this year’s conference, RS Stafford replicated this battery swapping method with circuit breaks and other common parts from his local hardware store. It’s inexpensive and very, very simple to build. This is the machine that ANYONE can make work if they just follow some simple wiring diagrams and RS’s instructions.

Ronald Brandt was a brilliant experimenter who was successful in developing many Tesla and related technologies. He associated with many of the legends of the “Free Energy” and Tesla Sciences field including the late John Bedini who he shared his well-known “Tesla Switch” plans with that ran an electrical motor in a unique way that allowed the batteries to stay charged up while producing an abundance of mechanical work.

With a different methodology, he developed a generator technology that had high energy gains based on synchronizing various resonances in the system and this serves as the foundation for the Quantum Energy Generator or QEG project, which became an internationally known phenomena by Hope Girl and the Fix the World Organization.

H2 Global by Walt Jenkins

Most water fuel researchers and developers are focused on methods to separate hydrogen and oxygen from water with electrolysis (running electrical current through the water).

However, there are other ways that are much more efficient and effective. With only hundreds of miliamps, Walt Jenkins can run an engine with 95%+ water.

He isn’t using electrolysis, but he was heavily involved with that years ago and he is actually the original developer of the popular dry cell that most experimenters are using.

Although this presentation is not a full disclosure, he does share some concepts regarding this method that point people in the right direction. Keep in mind that this is the first time he has given a presentation to the public.
