The self-help industry is guilty of telling people they are limitless and perpetuating the concept that you can do and be anything. It's a well meaning concept to try and help people see they are capable of more, which I agree with, but the sentiment is often a great disservice. Sure, you can go do anything and everything, but you won't do many of those things well. You are designed for some specific things. The great news is they will fit your innate desires and abilities. Imagine taking all the animals in Africa and dumping them on the open savannah. How will they fare? The monkeys and crocodiles and hippos and pythons and parrots will soon die. Or dump them all into the trees. How will the elephants and lions and gazelles do? You get the point. Yet we as humans are expected to just be ok in all the normal structures of our environment. It doesn't work, and most all of us spend a lot of our days in environments and circumstances that are greatly limiting us and don't cater to our unique makeup. This is my wrap up on my series with Andre Sólo and the message in his book, "Sensitive: The Hidden Power of the Highly Sensitive Person in a Loud, Fast, Too-Much World." Some of you are HSPs, as I've realized I am. But all of you have sensitivities. All of you. And chances are you are blind to them or are just trying to grit your teeth and plow through your life. You can. But you won't be at your best. You'll be doing yourself a disservice. Further, you'll be limiting the service you can bring to others. Walk with me a minute in looking at how to better curate and design your world for your success. June 15-16 of 2023 I'll be in Dallas to attend and speak at the Ziglar coach summit. If you are looking to influence people for the better, professionally or personally, I invite you to join us. First 10 people who register and say you heard about it from me, I'm taking to dinner!

“In diplomacy we always say, there's no free lunch, there's a catch somewhere” In this episode, Alan Kasujja speaks to Russian ambassador to Malawi and Zimbabwe, Nikolai Krasilnikov. His country donated 20, 000 tons of fertilizer to Malawi and 18 helicopters to Zimbabwe for policing, wild life protection duties and disaster management. But why is Russia appearing to be going out of its way to find friends in Africa? What's the end game here? These developments come at a time when South Africa's president Cyril Ramaphosa is planning to lead an African delegation to the troubled European region. They will be meeting President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine and Russia's head of state Vladimir Putin, in a bid to find a solution to the on-going war.

Complaints from neighbours about MOVE's lifestyle lead to increasingly violent clashes with police. One confrontation turns deadly, and by 1978, relations between MOVE and city authorities have reached a crisis point. The MOVE home in residential Powelton Village becomes the scene of a two-months-long starvation blockade, and the site of a stand-off with police that will end in blood, gunfire, and the arrest of nine members of MOVE, collectively charged with murder for the death of an officer.

Congress recently voted against pulling American troops out of Somalia. Officially, U.S. forces number 900 and are there in an advisory role to help the government of Hassan Sheikh Mohamud combat terrorist forces such as Al-Shabab.Yet our guest today states that U.S. boots on the ground in Somalia are doing nothing but serving as a recruiting tool for jihadists, their presence provoking widespread resentment among the people of the resource-rich but war-torn African nation.Ann Garrison is a journalist and a contributing editor to The Black Agenda Report. You can also find her at The Grayzone and on Pacifica Radio. Her latest article, “Ilhan Omar Voted to Withdraw from Somalia, but She's No Anti-Imperialist,” assesses the Minnesota Congresswoman's record on opposing U.S. actions in the Horn of Africa.Garrison notes that Washington has little interest in genuinely opposing radical jihadist groups in the region and is instead focused on maintaining control of a strategically important part of the world. Somalia sits on the Red Sea, across a narrow strait from Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Around 40% of world seaborne trade passes by its waters on the way to or from the Suez Canal. Moreover, the nation is believed to possess over 100 billion barrels of untapped offshore oil reserves. “Securing African resources is an existential imperative” for the U.S., Garrison said.The United States has spent the past decade bullying and intimidating countries in North East Africa. From the bombing of Libya and the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 to its attempts to isolate Eritrea economically and politically to bombing Somalia and supporting the insurgency of the Tigrayan People's Liberation Front against Ethiopia, Washington's actions have led many in the region to sour on the United States altogether.While Garrison welcomed the campaign led by Florida Republican Matt Gaetz to get everyone in Congress on record as to whether they support or oppose ending the seemingly endless war in Somalia, she cautioned that Gaetz is not a committed anti-imperialist, but a strong China hawk, and sees U.S. conflicts like the one in Somalia as a sideshow to the real showdown against Beijing.Support the showMintPress News is a fiercely independent.

I can't MAKE you happy. I can't MAKE you wealthy. I can't MAKE you healthy. Only you can truly do this. What I can do is show you the way and guide you on a path that will profoundly alter your destiny. As a child, I've witnessed many miracles. My father was known as the “Miracle man of Africa”. I saw my father restore eyesight to the blind and heal those unable to walk. People have often asked me if I have any of my father's healing abilities. I always decline to answer. However, many people claim to have experienced miracles in their lives when they worked with me. I started coaching people 22 years ago, with a sincere intention to transform lives. I'm privileged to have impacted hundreds of thousands directly and millions indirectly, through my videos, online courses, and my two bestselling books. I won't BS you and tell you that healing is easy. That all you need to do is think positive, recite nice affirmations, listen to a guided meditation, do a cacao ceremony, do a little breathwork, and then your life will miraculously change. It's not true. Here's the truth- It will take work. Healing your childhood traumas. Clearing your generational patterns. Shifting your subconscious limiting beliefs. Letting go of playing small and hiding. Releasing old fears. Building a truly fulfilling life of your dreams. Living your purpose and making an impact in the world. It takes serious commitment but trust me the level of freedom on the other side is so worth it. I know this because not only have I done the work in my own life but have helped individuals from all walks of life for TWO decades now. Some would say that perhaps my most life-changing process has been my 12 day Boundless Bliss journey in Bali. Earlier this year I announced that this was the final year I would be offering The Boundless Bliss: The Bali Breakthrough Experience. It's true. So, if you are someone who feels ready for the next level of your life. If you feel a deep knowing that you are here for a big purpose and are ready to live it now. If you know that you are ready to breakthrough whatever it is that has held you back from living your full potential. If you have felt a stirring in your soul and have been thinking about this Boundless Bliss journey with me for awhile now… Then I invite you to take the first step in creating your own miracle. Join me for the next journey starting July 28-August 8. I promise that if you commit, your life will transform in miraculous ways beyond what you could ever imagine. If you are ready, the next step is to watch the video and APPLY for an interview at: www.boundlessblissbali.com You will see the magic begin to happen from that very moment. I look forward to seeing you in Bali. Your time is NOW. Get in Touch: ● Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ● Visit my website: www.kuteblackson.com ● Events with Kute Blackson: Join me on a life-changing journey in Bali this July 28 - August 8.

Science Says Eat More Beans Beans are delicious, high in protein, inexpensive, efficient to grow, and an absolute staple in so many cuisines. So why don't Americans eat more of them? The average American eats 7.5 pounds of beans annually, which is only a few cans of beans every year. The answer is complicated, but one thing is sure: Beans have a PR problem. Ira talks with Julieta Cardenas, a Future Perfect Fellow at Vox, who reported this story. If you're looking to chef it up, read some of the SciFri staff's favorite bean recipes. The World According To Sound: Feeding Time In this story from our friends at The World According to Sound, we'll take a sonic trip to Yellowstone National Park. You'll hear the sounds of two grizzlies feasting on a bison. It's very rare that a bear can take down an adult bison, but they will chow down on animals that are already dead, like if they were killed by wolves or a car. The World According to Sound is a live audio show, online listening series, and miniature podcast, created by Chris Hoff and Sam Harnett. Bees Have Feelings, Too Few pollinators have the charisma of bees, so much so that the phrase “save the bees” has become a calling card for those who consider themselves ecologically-conscious. There are more than 21,000 species of bees, ranging from the very recognizable bumblebees to the vibrant blue and green Augochloropsis metallica. Pollination ecologist Stephen Buchmann has studied bees for nearly fifty years, learning about everything from their natural behaviors to how they respond to puzzles. All of this has led him to a fascinating conclusion: bees are sentient, and they have feelings. Stephen joins Ira from Tucson, Arizona to talk about his new book, What a Bee Knows. Read an excerpt from the book here. Pinning Down The Origin Of Butterflies One of the highlights of being outdoors in warmer weather is spotting a delicate, colorful butterfly exploring the landscape. There are over 19,000 different species of butterflies around the world—and all of them evolved from some enterprising moth that decided to venture out in the daytime, around 100 million years ago. But just where that evolutionary fork in the road occurred has been a matter of scientific debate, with many researchers positing a butterfly origin in Australia or Asia. Writing this week in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution, researchers report on a new phylogenetic map of butterfly evolution, a lepidopteran family tree, combining genetic data with information from fossils, plants, and geography to trace back the origin and spread of butterflies. They find that butterflies likely split from moths in what is now Central or North America, before spreading to South America, crossing oceans to Australia and Asia, and eventually spreading to Europe and Africa. Dr. Akito Kawahara, professor, curator, and director of the McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity at the Florida Museum of Natural History and one of the authors of the report, joins Ira to talk about the findings and share some other surprising facts about butterflies.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo is the world's poorest country, with a large majority of its 70 million citizens living in absolute poverty. For a long time, poverty in Africa has been seen as a purely humanitarian issue. But could the answer just be good economic management? Unfortunately, this situation has an obvious solution that is impossible to attain. Poverty is a thorny issue to deal with. Still, in this video, we'll attempt to explore some of the fundamental causes of this poverty and see how they impact the Congo's fragile economy.
What are the biggest trends that affect the future of agency recruitment? Are you positioned for success in the rapidly evolving world of work? With advances in Open AI and the growing popularity of remote work and the gig economy, the recruitment industry is set for a major transformation in the next 5-10 years. This shift might cause fear and uncertainty among recruiters, however if you're aware of the trends, remain agile and are willing to adapt, you can capitalize on the tremendous new opportunities that will be created. Join us in this episode with special guest, Rob Green, as we explore the future of agency recruitment amidst the rapidly changing technological landscape. Rob reveals his insights based on extensive research and shares the specific steps his company is taking to stay relevant. Rob Green is the CEO and Founder of The GRM Group, a holding company that combines leading recruitment, research, recruitment tech, and management consulting brands, all servicing the global legal industry. With 20 years of experience in the recruitment industry and having placed lawyers in 40 countries, Rob brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the discussion. Episode Outline and Highlights [03:05] Why and how Rob's business model has evolved since we last spoke. [08:00] How skill matching platforms will change the recruitment industry. [14:57] Why Rob created a research company, GRM Intelligence. [26:45] The future of the recruitment industry. [29:40] Core trends that are changing the way that we work. [40:30] How should you adapt your recruitment business to stay relevant? [47:33] Preparing for the future; why Rob is investing in Umbiie. The Three Meta Trends That Are Changing the Recruitment Industry Recruiters and recruitment business owners are always interested to know how technology such as Opan AI will affect the industry. You'll enjoy hearing Rob's fascinating insights about the future of work, based on the research report that he commissioned. His research team identified three trends that will transform the way people work and how companies recruit: The Sharing Economy / Gig Economy Global Talent Pools / Distributed Teams The Skillset Revolution Rob urged the listeners to zoom out from the world of recruitment for a minute and realize how the world is changing based on the above three meta trends. We also discussed the growing “gig economy,” and how talents prefer to work from anywhere in the world and would prefer project-based instead of full-time. If you fear that AI will take a majority of jobs in the future, that is not the crazy part. Rob cited a report by Dell Technologies which it states that “80% of all the jobs in the next decade that we'll all be working in haven't even been invented yet.” What does it mean for you as a recruiter or a recruitment business owner? As Rob very well puts it, “There's going to be a whole new way of recruiting, a whole new skill set of recruiting. And we can prepare for this.” Leveraging Skill-Matching Platforms for Recruitment Rob dived into how they are adapting to the trends of the shared economy and shared data by means of technology. They are using the platform StiiNT.iT (Stint It) - to simplify their process and maximize potential. The platform is a private-labelled recruitment technology where “Professionals across the world are vetted and skills verified creating anonymous profiles. These profiles will be searchable and accessible, whether it sits on someone else's platform or your own – building a collaborative talent pool, ensuring 100% matches, and removing unconscious biases.” Rob's team has white-labeled the Stint It platform to create Umbiie (umbiie.com), a global skills-matching platform for legal professionals. It's not a perfect comparison, but this is the equivalent of Bumble for recruiting - the idea is that candidates choose which employers can unlock their profile. Rob shared how they deal with data privacy and how the platform can be monetized. As he stated, “This is really not a pitch because I don't get anything out of this. This is just, do you wanna prepare for the future? Do you believe that there's going to be pressure on contingency recruitment? If you do, there is a solution out there.” Our Sponsors This podcast is proudly sponsored by i-intro and Recruitment Entrepreneur. i-intro® is an end-to-end retained recruitment platform.

The Oromo are the largest ethnic group in the Horn of Africa, but were relatively little known outside of the region until recently. This episode “Oromo Music: Historical Memory and Competing Visions in Ethiopia” looks into the history of the Oromo people and how music became an integral part of the early Oromo nationalism movement in the 20th century. Georges speaks with Kumera Zekarias, a PhD student in ethnomusicology who is working on an oral history project of the 1977 Oromo Cultural Showcase in Finfinne (Addis Ababa), a landmark two-day event which brought together Oromo musicians and listeners from across the diverse regions of the nation. The showcase was a statement of ethnic unity, which has since influenced how Oromo music is created, performed, and received. Professor Marta Kuwee Kumsa covered the event as a journalist and Damsho Ali, who was the event MC, provide first-hand accounts of how this show was organized and executed. They are joined by other Oromo academics, musicians, and music fans who relate the story of this event to larger themes of colonialism, multiculturalism, and how music continues to serve as an important source of oral history and historical memory in Ethiopia.

Let Them Fight: A Comedy History Podcast
Today we'll be taking a little trip to Jamaica to talk to about a woman so badass she's literally money. Nanny of the Maroons left Africa and showed up on the island during the time it was occupied by the British, and boy was she not happy with how they were running the show. So she decided to fuck with everything they did. And she was great at it. Between her skill as a leader and maybe some magic powers to help out, the Brits just couldn't stop her. Enjoy!

SapiensSapiens Full Book Introduction Homo sapiens were once an inconspicuous group in the corner of Africa. How did they eventually make it to the top of the biological chain and take over the planet? Where did money and religions originate from? Why did the empires created by humankind rise and fall one after another? How did science and capitalism become the most crucial tenets of modern society? This book will help you sort out the journey of humankind from ancient times. By uncovering the origins of cultures, religions, laws, nations, and credit, humankind can reexamine itself.

Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. East Africa, 2 million BC. It was a stretch of lush grassland, covered by a sea of bright greenness after the rainy season. Above the distant horizon were a few pale cumulus clouds scattered across the azure sky. A gutted giraffe lied underneath a tall Acacia tree, while a pride of lions gnawed on it. In a secluded spot in the grass next to the tree, hounds and jackals waited quietly. By the time the lions had left the area, hounds and jackals swarmed and feasted on the giraffe until all that's left was a skeleton, then they departed contentedly. At this moment, another group of creatures, very humanlike and somewhat chimpanzee-like, walked out of the bushes a little further. The group of creatures had arms and legs but walked upright. After carefully gathering around the giraffe skeleton and vigilantly surveying their surroundings, the creatures chiseled the giraffe's bones with several sharp stones. They dug out the only edible tissue that remained: marrow. The surface of the moon, 1969. The plains and plateaus composed of Plagioclase and basalt were dotted with meteor craters of breccia. Since the atmosphere was thin and almost nonexistent, the sunlight shining onto the grayish-white pitted ground was directly reflected into space. It not only resulted in considerable land surface temperature difference but also turned the sky pitch black. For billions of years since its birth, this place had been dead and quiet. Until this day, there had been no sign of life except for occasional visits by meteorites. A strange metallic device appeared in the distant sky and landed after quickly approaching. Two creatures in white but outlandish attire descended from the machine above. They bounced clumsily on the ground, inserted flags, and erected a metal tablet on this patch of land. Then one of them made a footprint in the ground and said, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." At this point, it should be clear to everyone that both stories are about ourselves as humans. Not so long ago, we were just weaklings on the prairie. We lived a life of fear and anxiety, feeding on raw, bloody meats. But in a short amount of time, we created a colossal global civilization. By what force did we as a species rise to power? Where did humankind originate? And how was civilizations born? How did we stick out from...

The Great Green Wall is one of the most ambitious environmental projects ever conceived, creating a vast belt of vegetation spanning Africa by 2030; from Senegal on the Atlantic to Djibouti on the Red Sea. It was heralded as Africa's contribution to the fight against climate change, reversing damage caused by drought, overgrazing and poor farming techniques. The regreening of 11 Sahel countries on the edge of the Sahara Desert would create millions of jobs, boost food security, and reduce conflict and migration. The plan was launched by the African Union in 2007, and despite political consensus, only 4% of the Great Green Wall had been completed by 2021. So what has gone wrong? What lessons have been learned, and will a change of strategy ensure its success by the end of the decade?
