About Joe Kinder
This is an interview with Joe Kinder, a 36-year-old climber from New Hampshire who was one of our sport's first professional (aka paid) athletes. He's climbed up to 5.14+ sport and 5.13+ trad, and he's given back much to the sport by developing a whole lot of new routes all over the US. He's well known for his consistently high level of psyche for climbing, and for being a genuinely good person and fellow climber at any crag.
Joe, Sam Elias, and Dan Mirsky recently completed the BD Training Bootcamp, where they lived and trained together in Golden, CO for several weeks at a time while being coached by Kris Peters and Justen Sjong. They all saw a lot of success after the bootcamp sessions, and I talked to Joe about what he accomplished after the bootcamp and how he's changing his overall training because of it.
About Our Talk
In this interview we talked about his history with climbing, growing up with Dave Graham, why he develops routes, training, diet, and lots more.
- BD bootcamp results
- Route development
- Moonboard training
- Making a living as a sponsored athlete
- Diet and alcohol
- Goals of 5.15

Not my post, just copied and posted here as good general information about the Sig p320 pistols.
New 2 July 2020 SIG P320 Lawsuit and P320 Concerns
On July 2nd, a suit against SIG regarding the P320 was filed in Federal District Court, in New Hampshire:
The suit is very interesting; the plaintiff alleges he had a P320 that essentially went off by itself, with no trigger manipulation. The plaintff's P320 is one that had not undergone SIG's "Voluntary Upgrade Program (VUP)."
What's interesting about the lawsuit (and it goes without saying, it's a lawsuit, with one party alleging) is that it cites specific instances of other P320s that HAD undergone the SIG VUP upgrade similarly self-firing; this is a huge concern.

In 1983, two hippie farmers decided to sell homemade organic yogurt to help raise money for their educational farm in New Hampshire. As the enterprise grew into a business, it faced one near-death experience after another, but it never quite died. In fact it grew — into one of the most popular yogurt brands in the US. PLUS in our postscript "How You Built That," we check back with Carin Luna-Ostaseski, who became the first American woman to start a Scotch whisky company after she created her own blend called SIA Scotch.

BONN: Virginia has today become the latest US state to commit to action on climate change, becoming a member of the Under2 Coalition of leading sub-national governments at a side event hosted during the 23rd UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn.
Led by states and regions internationally, the Coalition, for which The Climate Group acts as Secretariat, brings together signatories and endorsers of the Under2 MOU from across 39 countries to fight climate change and support the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of keeping global warming below 2°C. The Coalition now represents over 1.2 billion people and 39% of the global economy ($US29.4 trillion).
At a ceremony attended by Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, COP 23 Special Advisor for States Regions California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. and other member governments, Virginia became the 11th US state to join the Coalition, alongside California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York State, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington. As the US federal government steps away from the Paris Agreement, Virginia joining the Coalition is further evidence of state and regional governments both in the US and globally, uniting to help drive climate action forward.
In recent months, Virginia has expanded efforts to cut emissions. On Tuesday, Virginia released a draft regulation under Governor McAuliffe’s Executive Directive that is aimed at reducing carbon emissions from the electric sector by thirty percent between 2020 and 2030. The draft regulatory program will enable Virginia to link to the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, which will increase investment in clean energy resources.
At the event, Governor Terry McAuliffe, Virginia, said: “Virginia is driving clean energy investment and carbon reduction despite the President’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.
“In the absence of leadership in Washington, Virginia is stepping up to sign the Under2 Memorandum of Understanding. Virginia will meet the challenge of climate change head on, and we will do so in a way that grows our clean energy sector and supports our new Virginia economy.”
Helen Clarkson, CEO of The Climate Group, secretariat for the Coalition said: "It is great to see another US state ready and willing to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by committing to the Under2 Coalition. This is another example of the strong leadership on climate action that we’ve seen from US states over the past few months, despite the position of the federal government.
“We hope that more sub-national governments around the world take up such ambitious climate action.”
COP 23 Special Advisor for States Regions California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. said: "The state of Virginia is joining a global force of states, regions and cities to combat dangerous global warming."
Virginia becomes 189th government to join The Coalition. Signatories and endorsers commitment to limiting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80-95% on 1990 levels, or to two metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent per capita annually, by 2050.
The Climate Group has been at the forefront of state and regional climate leadership for over a decade. At COP23, the international not-for-profit announced the Governors and Premiers who will lead the Under2 Coalition in 2018: Winfried Kretschmann, Minister-President of Baden-Württemberg; Edmund G. Brown Jr. Governor of California; Aristotoles Sandoval, Governor of Jalisco; Willes Mchunu, Premier of Kwa-Zulu Natal; Philippe Couillard, Premier of Québec; Jay Weatherill, Premier of South Australia.

About the Under2 Coalition
Under2 is a leading coalition of ambitious sub-national governments committed to supporting delivery of the Paris Agreement and keeping global temperature rises to below 2 degrees Celsius.
Led by states and regions internationally, the Coalition brings together signatories and endorsers of the Under2 MOU, a commitment to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80-95% on 1990 levels, or to two metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent per capita annually, by 2050.
The Climate Group is Secretariat to the Under2 Coalition and works with signatories to accelerate the pace of climate action. The Under2 Coalition includes more than 185 jurisdictions, representing over 1.2 billion people and a third of the global economy.
The Under2 Coalition’s initiatives are delivered through three, inter-connected work streams, which seek to accelerate and scale climate action by state and regional governments:
- Deep decarbonization pathway planning: supporting governments to develop robust medium and long-term (2050) emissions reduction plans in line with the Paris Climate Agreement goal of keeping the rise in global temperature well below 2 degrees Celsius of warming.
- Scaling innovative policy solutions: replicating and spreading today’s best policies to accelerate climate action, and developing new policies to ensure full decarbonization over the longer-term.
- Mainstreaming transparency and reporting: supporting governments so they have the expertise and systems in place to assess their emissions accurately, track progress and ensure policies remain fit for delivering against decarbonization targets.

This message was sent to students and their families.
On July 24, Massachusetts Governor Baker announced a travel order that outlines steps that travelers—including students—must take if coming to Massachusetts from outside select states. As of August 1, the state will require all travelers from higher-risk states to:
- Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arrival.
- Either quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in the state or acceptable region, or produce a negative COVID-19 test result that has been administered no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Massachusetts.
Students who have been in a state defined as “lower risk” for at least 14 days prior to arrival in Massachusetts are exempt from these requirements. The states currently defined as lower risk are Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and Hawaii; however, the lower-risk designations could change prior to WPI’s move-in date. Please check the Massachusetts website before coming to campus.
To comply with the state mandate and to equitably support the health and well-being of the WPI community, WPI will require all students residing in on-campus housing or a fraternity/sorority house, regardless of the state they are coming from, to engage in pre-arrival testing.
Over the coming weeks, each student will receive instructions about signing waivers, participating in required training, and testing. It is critical you read these communications very carefully. Your ability to complete the necessary steps is essential to returning to campus.
For On-Campus and Fraternity/Sorority House Residents Who Are Coming from a Lower-Risk State
WPI must receive evidence of a negative test result prior to move-in and will provide you with the following testing options—at no cost to you—depending on your state of residence.
- Students residing in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut will be asked to come to campus 5 days prior to their assigned campus move-in date to take a COVID-19 test.
- Residence hall move-in dates and testing dates will be communicated on August 7, in your Housing Confirmation Email. Fraternity/sorority house residents will receive an email from the Office of Student Activities with detailed information about scheduled pre-arrival testing dates.
- Students living in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, New York, New Jersey, and Hawaii will receive a COVID-19 test by mail 5 days prior to arrival on campus using the address provided on your intentions form.
- On-campus resident move-in days will be assigned by WPI based on the student’s residence hall and the state the student is traveling from. The date and information about selecting a specific arrival time will be communicated in the coming week.
For On-Campus and Fraternity/Sorority House Residents Who Are Coming from a Higher-Risk State
The state requires that students living in or having traveled to higher-risk states in the 14 days prior to arrival in Massachusetts provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test administered no more than 72 hours prior to arrival in Massachusetts.
WPI will credit all residential students from higher-risk states who obtain their own PCR COVID test with $115 to their student account to help supplement the testing cost.
On-campus resident move-in for students from higher-risk states will be:
- Upperclass Students: Saturday, August 22
- First-Year Students: Wednesday, August 26
To meet Massachusetts guidelines, including the need for a negative test within 72 hours, students need to:
- Complete the Massachusetts Travel Form.
- Complete the WPI Travel Requirements Arrangements form to inform us of your plans no later than August 19.
- Choose one of the following options:
- (Preferred) Have a PCR test for COVID-19 administered within the 72 hours prior to your arrival in Massachusetts. You must provide evidence of the test result to WPI by uploading it to the Health Portal.
- Travel to one of the specified lower-risk states outside of Massachusetts and remain there for 14 days prior to coming to campus. (Reminder: The lower-risk states could change prior to late August.)
- Travel to Massachusetts and self-quarantine for 14 days prior to coming to campus. The state has provided requirements for quarantine.
- Students planning to reside on campus who cannot get a PCR test administered within 72 hours prior to arrival can be tested upon arrival to WPI and will receive results within 48 hours after testing. Students who travel with their families may choose to stay in off-campus accommodations while they wait for their negative test result. Otherwise, students will be required to individually quarantine in WPI-provided quarantine space and will not be able to move into their assigned residence hall rooms until they receive a negative test result.
For Off-Campus Residents Who Are Coming from a Higher-Risk State
We expect students who live off-campus or are otherwise commuting to adhere to the state travel mandate, which means that students coming from higher-risk states should arrange for a PCR test or should arrive to Massachusetts 14 days prior to coming to campus. Please note that the university will not begin its regular campus testing protocol (weekly or biweekly testing of all students who come onto campus) until on or after August 22.
For Parents/Guardians/Family Members
Parents, guardians, and other family members who plan to stay overnight in the state must comply with the state travel order. If they are only dropping off the student and then leaving the campus and state the same day, they are exempted from the order. Please see the state’s website for more information.
Planning Your Travel
COVID-19 trends continue to evolve, as does state and public health guidance—and WPI’s plans may also have to evolve. Therefore, we recommend that you maintain as much flexibility as possible. We suggest that any airline tickets that you purchase, particularly round-trip tickets, can be changed or refunded. WPI cannot be responsible for any travel costs incurred.
If at the time of your planned travel to campus, you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, are recovering from COVID-19, or have been identified as possibly having been exposed, you should not come to campus and you should contact Health Services at 508-831-5520. We will then work with you on an arrival plan.
Testing Upon Arrival to Campus
All students will participate in routine testing once they arrive to campus. The cost for this testing will be covered by the additional Health & Wellness Fee; there will be no per-test fee for students. Detailed information will be sent to students about scheduling their ongoing tests as we approach the start of classes.
We continue to be grateful for your patience and flexibility—and your participation in these critical health and safety practices—as we work with this evolving situation. For any questions, please email WeAreWPI@wpi.edu.
