Capital and largest city of the Netherlands
Special guest: Simone Davies,Let's face it. When people hear the word; “toddler” it often conjures up thoughts of “the terrible twos,” torrential tantrums and tirades that feature the word “NO!” in big capital letters. There are frustrations about toddlers not listening, not eating fruits and vegetables, not sleeping, not listening, not allowing parents to go to go out on a date or go to the bathroom without their company. But what if I told you that by looking at life through a toddler's eyes and using the methods developed by Dr. Montessori, you can learn the peaceful way of raising a toddler to become a curious, responsible, kind individual? That is exactly what we are going to do today with our next guest. Simone Davies is the author of “The Montessori Toddler”, runs parent-child Montessori classes in Amsterdam at her school Jacaranda Tree Montessori, and is mother of two young adults. She also has a popular blog, “The Montessori Notebook”. Finding Montessori helped her so much when raising her own children and it's now her passion to help other parents introduce these ideas in their homes too. She was looking to find a way to be with her kids that wasn't about bossing them about, threatening them and bribing them. Or giving them free reign either. And she wanted them to have a positive experience of school, not just to pass tests, but to love learning.

Feedback is the topic of conversation this week on Thriving Women Artists. We all want to know people's honest opinions and what we can potentially work on improving. Join Ping, Sarah and Dorien as they discuss why feedback is important, how to give it, when to give it, and a little bit of their own experiences. KEY TAKEAWAYS Feedback can be educated or uneducated, it can be a reaction or it can be thought out. It can cover the whole spectrum of critical to positive. Don't just think about what they are saying, look at who is saying it and why. You can also get feedback on the process around your work. If you're working with clients they may give this, or in some cases give no feedback at all, it happens. Always remember to ask yourself what is the purpose for you wanting feedback and who are you getting feedback from. Are they the right person who can help you know what you want to find out. If you want feedback on your book illustrations, then ask someone involved in that process. When you're getting feedback you can ask questions, find out more about what they think and make sure you're getting the right advice for what you need. Don't take it personal. Your art is a part of you, but it's not you. If you're getting feedback from a client, remember that you're both working towards the same goal. When giving feedback, start with something specific, honest, and positive. BEST MOMENTS ‘It's not about the work you're making, it's about if you love making it' ‘You don't need to be completely happy with all of your work before you ask for feedback' ‘They like to see the process from sketch to final art' ‘There's no failure, only feedback' ABOUT THE PODCAST A serious and fun podcast for female creatives hosted by Ping, Dorien and Sarah, three happy artists from Amsterdam.

On the show today is Daniel Troia, The Travelin Dude. He is a filmmaker who at one point did a little questioning of life, needed some soul searching and hopped on his bike to find answers. He has been on some epic bike touring adventures, and on at least two tours he took along his GoPro to film his experience. His first film, called “Two Wheels to Freedom”, documents his tour from Rome to Amsterdam and is full of adventure and beautiful scenery. Bike touring to Daniel is all about the freedom where you just get on a bike, ride, and let the adventures come to you. His second film documents his tour across the U.S. where he took off on his loaded Surly Long Haul Trucker without food and money, hoping to find both along the way. Not only was he able to find both while biking for 7 months, he also discovered great human connection with strangers. This film will be out soon and is called "We Are All In This Together". Daniel described it perfectly when he said there is something about the constant rhythm of the pedals plus the fresh air that stimulates the brain. This guy gives off a contagious positive vibe and I can't wait to see what he does next. https://www.weareallinthistogethermovie.com/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJfFJoK5nffUxmyC48pvBGA https://www.instagram.com/the_travelin_dude/ www.murphologypodcast.com https://www.patreon.com/murphology
In the Port of Rotterdam they are preparing for a ‘White Xmas' - but no one is talking about snow. Europe's North Sea coast has overtaken the Iberian peninsula as the primary point of entry for cocaine reaching the continent. Industrial-sized labs have been busted in the Netherlands, and mafia-style executions have occurred on the streets. Most recently the crime journalist, Peter R de Vries was shot and mortally wounded in busy Amsterdam. For Crossing Continents, Linda Pressly asks how the Netherlands has become one of the largest illicit drug economies of the world.

Although it's an unassuming slim little cake and somewhat wet inside, don't let looks fool you; it has the best flavour, and there's a lovely contrast between the slightly chewy crust and buttery crumb. What's also appealing is that it only takes about 15 minutes to make and is wonderfully versatile – perfect for afternoon tea, but serve it with poached plums, quince or tamarillos and a dollop of rich cream and it's like waving a magic wand that transforms it into a very elegant dessert.· SERVES 8-10.180g almond meal2/3 cup (60g) desiccated coconut1/4 teaspoon salt250g castor sugar4 x 60g eggs1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract1/4 teaspoon almond essence200g unsalted butter, melted and cooled2 tablespoons flaked almondsicing sugar, (optional), for dustingPreheat your oven to 180C. Butter a 23 or 24cm shallow spring form cake tin and line the base and sides with buttered baking paper. Dust the tin lightly with flour (or rice flour if you're avoiding wheat) and set it aside.Put the almond meal, desiccated coconut, salt and sugar into a medium-sized bowl and whisk them briskly together with a balloon whisk for 1 minute. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract and almond essence until they're thoroughly mixed, then mix in the cooled butter until it is incorporated. Tip the butter mixture into the almond mixture and stir them together (you'll find that it's quite a loose batter). Scrape this into the prepared tin and spread it out evenly, then scatter the flaked almonds over the top.Put the tin in the oven and bake the cake for about 40 minutes, or until the top of the cake springs back slowly when you press it gently. Cool the cake in the tin on a wire rack.Once the cake is cool, invert it onto the rack, remove the tin and paper and invert it again onto a serving plate. Dust the top lightly with icing sugar, if liked, and serve.It's handy to know that this freezes very well…I usually slice it before I freeze it and defrost (or microwave) it as I need it (frequently in my case!). It also keeps well in the fridge for a week or so. Warm it gently or bring it to room temperature before eating it – although it has a rather fabulous ‘chewy' almost candy-like texture when it's cold too.
In this episode we look at one of the first Rabbis of Amsterdam, Rabbi Shaul Mortera. Where did they go to find a Rabbi that would fit with their community? Is there any significance to his family background? We also look at the one of prime tools the community used to keep internal order, cherem. What is a cherem? Is it still used today? Is it accurate from a Torah perspective to use this terminology?

Host Geri Cole speaks to PEN15 co-creators, co-writers, and co-stars Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle about how the duo met (at an experimental theater program in Amsterdam), how PEN15 has become even more honest and raw in its second season, and the curious case of writing for yourself as a 13-year-old. Maya Erskine is a writer and actor known for her onscreen roles in several comedy series, including MAN SEEKING WOMAN, HEARTBEAT, CASUAL, and INSECURE. Anna Konkle is a writer, actor, and director, known for co-starring in the Fox police procedural ROSEWOOD. Together, Erskine and Konkle co-created, co-write, and co-star in the Hulu series PEN15. The "traumedy" follows fictionalized versions of Maya and Anna as teenage outcasts in the year 2000, during a period when the best day of your life can turn into the worst with just the stroke of a gel pen. The series, which premiered in 2019, is available to stream on Hulu. Part two of Season 2 is scheduled for release on December 3. --- Before it was a podcast, OnWriting was a print publication.

Born in 1961 and completing her degree in Audio Visual studies at The Surrey Institute, Farnham in 1986, Anna Fox began her career as a documentary photographer. Influenced by the British documentary tradition and the USA's ‘New Colourists', she chronicled new town life in Basingstoke (locally known as ‘Doughnut City') and went on to publish the monograph Work Stations (1988), a study of London Office life in Thatcher's Britain. These works were exhibited extensively as far a field as Brazil and Estonia and in Through the Looking Glass, at the Barbican Art Gallery in 1989 curated by David Mellor and Ian Jeffrey, establishing Anna as a significant figure within the field of new colour documentary.In later projects, made in the 1990's, In Pursuit (1990), The Village (1991-1992 Cross Channel Photographic Mission commission), Friendly Fire (1992) and Zwarte Piet (the Netherlands 1994-1999) Anna created a new direction inventing innovative approaches and raising questions regarding the problems of documentary practice. These projects were exhibited in a number of solo exhibitions including The Photographers Gallery, London and The Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago.By early 2000 Anna produced two autobiographical works: Cockroach Diary and My Mothers Cupboards and my Father's Words which completely turned on its head the notion of the documentary photographer as outsider. These new works investigated the personal and difficult world of domestic households and relationships bringing together a mix of image and text in two miniature book works. Later in 2003 the series Made in Europe questioned further the power relation between subject and photographer by handing over power to the subject in whork that portrayed a vision of contemporary Europe through the eyes and voices of teenagers. The projects Country Girls (1996-2001) and Pictures of Linda (1983-ongoing) introduced a collaborative element to Anna's practice: by working in partnership with the singer/songwriters Alison Goldfrapp and Linda Lunus the relationship between subject and photographer was being explored from a new perspective.Anna was shortlisted for the 2010 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize and the 2012 Pilar Citoler Prize. Her later projects, Resort 1 and Resort 2 are published by Shilt, Amsterdam, Loisirs is published by Diaphane and an new book, BLINK, will be published by Central St Martins.Anna is Professor of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham and leads the Fast Forward Women in Photography research project.On episode 166, Anna discusses, among other things:Reflections on the past 18 monthsWhat she's been working on during that periodHaving a lot of ideasMoving away from a ‘project based mentaility'The influences of people who taught her: Graham, Parr and KnorrThe exploration of the every day41 Hewitt Road and the transition to focusing on domestic photographyHer use of text in conjunction with imagesMoving to and working in an English country villageHer project Zwarte PietMy Mothers Cupboards and my Father's WordsFast Forward Women in Photography Referenced:John DillwynMary DillwynPaul ReasPaul SearightAnthony HaugheyTessa BunneyDavid MoorePaul GrahamMartin ParrKaren KnorVal WilliamsJane AustenGilbert WhiteWilliam CobbettRaymond WilliamsMieke BalMark Sealy - AutographNaomi Rosenblaum Website | Instagram | Facebook“It's the discovery of the personal voice, I suppose, and the personal stories that you want to tell, that you can't articulate. That's why someone becomes a photographer or a filmmaker… you use photography because you can't speak it.”
What if every guest inspired the host to write a song? This is exactly what happens on Jack Stafford's podcast Podsongs. He kicked it off only last year and has already created a unique little universe of over 100 episodes and songs now. Lately, this universe has evolved into a collaborative project with guest musicians coming on. Jack had been a musician for many years when the pandemic forced him to look for other outlets for his music. He talks to all kinds of inspirational people, but he has a mission: to bring spirituality to the centre stage and mysticism back into the mainstream. Jack grew up in the UK but moved to Amsterdam, where he lived a toyboy lifestyle working as a copywriter, musician and fashion designer. However, this led to burnout, so Jack sold all his possessions and set off on a bicycle tour as a nomadic troubadour. He travelled through 45 countries, playing hundreds of house concerts in return for a place to sleep. He recorded many of his crazy adventures in his songs, and through those—plus countless self-help books and podcasts, as well as yoga, Ayurveda and Vipassana meditation—he grew and grew to become a unique modern-day troubadour. His spiritual awakening happened in India. It wasn't a flash experience, it came gradually. The person who showed him how to find a deeper reality was an American. ”You think you'll meet some Indian guru. But this man had been doing pranayamas and mantras since he was three years old. And he opened the door to George King and the Aetherius society. So there I am in India, learning about an Englishman via an American...” The Aetherius society has since been at the centre of Jack Stafford's spiritual quest. It is a small movement founded by George King in the 50s. The teachings are fascinating but may appear mysterious to many people. Jack explains bits and pieces of it. ”If you're open to it, it's Buddhism and Christianity and UFOs and science, all wrapped into one bundle of joy”, he says with a smile. ”We are here to be of service. We are here to learn. We are in a classroom.” Many spiritual people unwisely skip the material aspects of this earthly existence, Jack thinks. ”Many spiritual people just want to be in the bosom of their garden with fairies or meditate. They don't think it is a spiritual way to get a science degree or start a business. But you can't learn metaphysics unless you master physics.” ”You can levitate if you do 15 years of yoga with mantra and pranayama. These are siddies you get. There is science behind that.” However, once you have attained such siddies, you should deny them, he explains. ”When you master something, you don't use it. Because we are here to be of service.” The teachings of George King and the Aetherius society centers not only around yoga but also extraterrestrial life. ”This is where it can get a little crazy. This is why I got into this gradually.” There is physicality on every level of consciousness and light, according to Jack Stafford. When we die, we go to another realm, which is exactly here, but at a different frequency. ”If you go to another planet with our frequency, it can look like only dust, but in a higher realm, the same planet has cities, temples and spaceships. This is a key concept as to how UFOs and reincarnation are linked.” According to Jack and the Aetherius teachings, some of the ETs visiting Earth may actually be us at a later, or higher, stage–the ”future us” showing up here and now, so to speak.

Over 20,000 women have been murdered due to domestic violence since 2003. Unsilenced Voices founder Michelle Jewsbury nearly became one of those women. For years, Michelle was trapped in the domestic abuse cycle. She walked on eggshells around her partner, suffered his violent blow ups, and tried to believe his apologies. Instead of being accountable, her abuser worked to keep Michelle isolated and silent. In December of 2015 she summoned the strength to break that cycle, leave her abuser, and share her story. Now, Michelle works to combat domestic and gender-based violence on a global scale as the founder and CEO of Unsilenced Voices.Unsilenced Voices is a Non Profit Organization that helps Victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Gender Based Violence Worldwide. They work closely with their partners to assist the many victims of domestic abuse and sexual gender based violence in Ghana, Sierra Leone, and Rwanda. They provide monthly sensitization community trainings and are pre-collaborating with their Nepal partner who assist girls forced into marriage who flee from their husbands due to physical and sexual violence against them. In Amsterdam, they are working with the Ellamo Foundation to bring programing there.

I'm excited to welcome you to a special episode of the Mother's Quest Podcast that I am extremely grateful for, just in time for Thanksgiving, featuring the amazing Julie Lythcott-Haims and my 17-year-old son Ryan Neale. Julie is an incredible mother to two, a former Stanford Dean and New York Times bestselling author of the anti-helicopter parenting manifesto How to Raise an Adult, which gave rise to a TED Talk that has more than 5 million views. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to interview Julie for the podcast several years ago when that book was first released. When I heard about Julie's new book Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, I knew I wanted to invite her back to the podcast again. And, I hoped that my son Ryan, on the threshold of adulthood himself, would join us in the conversation. The stars aligned and Ryan was available the day of the interview, enabling Julie, Ryan, and I to explore the concepts of her book, about navigating adulthood and embracing our differences, especially our neurodiversity, in deeply personal and relevant ways. In this episode, I'm also excited to share a dedication from Deborah Reber, former podcast guest, fellow mother on a quest, and host of the TiLT Parenting Podcast.Deborah's heart-felt dedication honors Julie and other mothers raising neurodivergent children. I could not agree more with Deborah's assessment about what an exceptional human Julie is, about the power of Julie's commitment to put the stories of a diverse group of young people with different identities on the pages of her book, and about the impact of Julie's work for normalizing and honoring differences. As you hear our conversation unfold, I know you'll be as struck as I was by Julie's wisdom and humility as she talks with Ryan, helping him to understand that he deserves to be cherished for who he is, that he can approach things like writing in ways that work for his differently-wired mind, and that he can seek out environments, like college, that enables him to play to his strengths and allow him to thrive. Since our conversation, Ryan was able to take Julie's advice to heart, using voice to text without shame to write his personal statement for college applications and sharing his personal insights on a panel at the recent Stanford Neurodiversity Summit. You can follow the link in the show notes to listen.Finally, this conversation is a demonstration that there is no destination to becoming an adult, but an ongoing journey of learning and discovery, that parents and their children can support one another in reciprocity with curiosity, and that we can all benefit from asking ourselves the question from Mary Oliver's famous poem, that Julie gives us as our challenge, “What is it that we want to do with our one wild and precious life?”As we approach Thanksgiving, the five-year birthday of the launch of Mother's Quest, and my 50th birthday, I can say there is nothing I'd rather do than hold space for a conversation like this one and share it with you. About Julie: Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way. She is the New York Times bestselling author of the anti-helicopter parenting manifesto How to Raise an Adult which gave rise to a TED Talk that has more than 5 million views. Her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American, which illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. A third book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, is out now. Julie is a former corporate lawyer and Stanford dean, and she holds a BA from Stanford, a JD from Harvard, and an MFA in Writing from California College of the Arts. She serves on the board of Common Sense Media, and on the advisory board of LeanIn.Org, and she is a former board member at Foundation for a College Education, Global Citizen Year, The Writers Grotto, and Challenge Success. She volunteers with the hospital program No One Dies Alone. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her partner of over thirty years, their itinerant young adults, and her mother. Connect with Julie: Website Twitter Instagram LinkedIn About RyanRyan Neale is a neurodivergent 12th Grader from San Mateo, California. His parents discovered he was differently wired when he was 18 months old but he has been in fully mainstream education for his academic career, with most people around him not knowing about some of the struggles that he faces. His experiences publicly masking his neuro differences have given him a unique perspective on many of the struggles neurodiverse people face, such as public stigma, ableism, and the ever-present desire to fit in. As he has begun advocating more for his needs, he has high hopes to use his perspective and communication skills to increase public understanding of neurodiversity, and hopefully create a more inclusive society for everyone. In his free time, he enjoys playing varsity basketball for his high school team, coaching youth sports, roughhousing with his little brother, and diving headfirst into his many fantasy special interests. He is thrilled to have participated in this fall's Stanford Neurodiversity Summit on a K-12 student panel. You can listen to the panel here. Connect with Ryan: Instagram Topics Discussed in this Episode: How Julie's experience listening to students as a Stanford Dean and raising her own children led her to write a book about young adults The painful admission Julie shared about overlooking her own son Sawyer's challenges with ADHD and anxiety and the poignant moment when her son acknowledged Julie's shift in understanding him The ways that Ryan identifies as neurodivergent, how he has adapted, and the pain he has experienced trying to fit in a neurotypical world Julie's advice to Ryan about embracing who he is Her recommendation of the book Normal Sucks by Jonathan Mooney The revelations parents can take from Julie's book How to help young adults figure out what next steps to take on their path to becoming an adult The lessons Julie has personally gained from writing her books Julie's words of wisdom for Ryan on how to move through his resistance of writing by trying methods that might work better for his differences and strengths The biggest takeaway that Julie learned in her research and in her own journey writing the book about how to be vulnerable and connected and open to the support of others so that you don't have to feel alone Julie's challenge for all of us that can help us live our best lives as adults Resources and Topics Mentioned: Ep 52: Third Chapters, Raising Adults, and Loving Ourselves with Julie Lythcott-Haims Normal Sucks by Jonathan Mooney Julie's books Julie's Ted talk This Episode's Challenge: Ask yourself the question from Mary Oliver's famous poem, “what do I want to do with this one wild and precious life?” Explore what would you do if it was only up to you...if nobody else's opinion really mattered. Go to a quiet place, a shower, out in nature, or on a hammock and ask yourself "What is the work that brings me joy? What are the places and spaces where I feel valued and seen?"

President Joe Biden is nominating Jerome Powell for a second term as chairman of the Federal Reserve, which means Americans can expect the U.S. central bank to maintain its patient stance on inflation and interest rates. Biden praised Powell and the Fed for “decisive” action that cushioned the impact of the Covid pandemic. Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor, discusses why it's important for Americans to get a booster shot against Covid-19 ahead of the holidays. Sara Nelson, international president of the Association of Flight Attendants, also discusses whether airlines are ready for the expected surge in holiday travel. Protests against fresh Covid-19 restrictions have rocked Europe over the weekend, with demonstrations breaking out in places such as Brussels, Vienna, Rome and Amsterdam. Plus, the future of Activision and a monster beverage deal.

@mamasnake is at the heart of Copenhagen's blistering techno scene. She plays with a serious amount of speed and showcased that as far back as 2018 when she played for Boiler Room at our Amsterdam festival. But she is also a qualified surgeon, co-founder of Amniote Editions and curator who oversees the release of music, posters, videos and t-shirts. She prefers to keep a low profile and operate in darkened spaces at the dead of night, but with her at the controls, there is no finer place to be. Mama Snake's supple and sublime sound is a mix of sleek techno and uplifting trance. She plays with a tight and technical mixing style and can make you fall in love with tracks you didn't even know you liked. On this week's mix, she charges through kinetic beats and slithering synths that never let up, but never get stuck in a rut. There is always a breakdown to reset the mood, a dreamy lead to take your mind away or a vocal latch on to. They say that speed kills, but when it comes to Mama Snake, speed thrills.
A win at last! A win at last! whilst Vass makes his way back from the stadium and Dan is somewhere cut adrift in Amsterdam, Sam and Tim are here to discuss all things to do with today's comeback victory against Leeds, where after an insipid first half Conte sprinkled some magic sauce on the players at half time and showed the THFC fans of what might be coming ahead. Join us for this recap whilst we also take in your questions and look forward to another two fixtures this coming week.
Struggles, they can be pretty universal, but how do you overcome them? That's the topic of conversation on this week's episode of Thriving Women Artists. Join Sarah, Ping, and Dorien as they discuss their personal struggles and how they work to overcome them. Hopefully you'll pick up some tips and tricks that can help you in your day-to-day life. KEY TAKEAWAYS Struggles can include, having too many ideas and not staying focused, time management and balancing work with family life, self-doubt, and not taking enough care of yourself. The first step in overcoming your struggles is to acknowledge them. Stand still and notice the things you find easy and the things that you find difficult. Sarah documents these things and finds it easier to manage them that way. Sometimes Ping forgets herself in the roles she has to play, as a woman, as a mother, as an artist. A lot of problems can start from not knowing who you are. The better you know yourself the better you can identify your struggles. You can try using tricks to make the things you don't enjoy feel more fun. Even if it's something as simple as buying yourself some new art supplies. You should always ask for help if you need it, not just asking others but also asking yourself for some down time or to remind yourself to take care of your needs. BEST MOMENTS ‘Know your weakness but also know your strengths' ‘I create a support system, I say please help me' ‘You can create the mood, create the flow' ABOUT THE PODCAST A serious and fun podcast for female creatives hosted by Ping, Dorien and Sarah, three happy artists from Amsterdam.

We had the pleasure of interviewing José James over Zoom video! Out now, the jazz voice of the hip hop generation José James (Rainbow Blonde Records) releases his first ever Christmas album Merry Christmas from José James. In addition to the album release, José also premieres the official performance video for the original track "Christmas in New York" today. The contemporary album celebrates the holiday season while honoring classic jazz and pop records of the 1950s. Combining the classic jazz-crooner elegance of Frank Sinatra and Nat “King” Cole with the earthy sophistication of soul legends Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, the ten track Merry Christmas from José James takes listeners on a world-class holiday experience from one of the greatest living voices in jazz.Listeners can find two original tracks, “Christmas in New York” and “Christmas Day” along with popular ballads such as “The Christmas Song,” “White Christmas,” “Let it Snow” and “This Christmas,” a modern twist on the Donny Hathaway holiday favorite. In James' version, he musically brings an aspect of R&B and hip-hop to the mostly Jazz collection.Songwriting for the project was spearheaded by José James and his partner, recently Grammy nominated Talia Billig. The album's studio band features Grammy winning and nominated all stars Ben Williams (bass), Aaron Parks(piano), Jharis Yokley (drums) and Marcus Strickland (soprano saxophone). Produced by José James and Brian Bender and recorded by Ariel Shafir at Dreamland Studios, the album was mastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios. The session was recorded completely live on 2” tape and mixed in LCR (left-center-right) by Brian Bender at Motherbrain West.“It's the perfect album to put on whenever there's a certain spirit in the air,” James says. “I hope that people can feel a little bit of the joy and the wonder, year round, that 8-year-old José felt, not only about Christmas and all the obvious things—the ornaments, the tree, the holiday season—but also the music,” he continued.A 13 date tour to support the album will launch at SF Jazz in San Francisco on November 27th and conclude at New York's City Winery on December 14th. Stops also include Seattle, Portland, Santa Cruz, LA, Phoenix, Santa Fe, Minneapolis and Chicago. (All tour dates listed below). About José James James, a Minneapolis, MN native who spent most of his career in New York, was discovered by Gilles Peterson in London before his major label debut with Blue Note Records. He has produced and written 11 albums covering the best of jazz, pop, hip-hop and R&B. In 2017, José made his screen debut with a performing role in Fifty Shades Darker. He now lives in Amsterdam with Talia Billig, his partner and Grammy nominated songwriter.We want to hear from you!

As he only became famous after his suicide, he came to be seen as a misunderstood genius in the public imagination. His reputation grew in the early 20th century as elements of his style came to be incorporated by the Fauves and German Expressionists. He attained widespread critical and commercial success over the ensuing decades, and is remembered as an important but tragic painter whose troubled personality typifies the romantic ideal of the tortured artist. Today, Van Gogh's works are among the world's most expensive paintings to have ever sold, and his legacy is honored by a museum in his name, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which holds the world's largest collection of his paintings and drawings.Donda debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 after a five-day period of tracking, with 309,000 album-equivalent units that consisted of 272,000 streaming-equivalent album units, 37,000 pure album sales, and less than 1,000 track-equivalent units.#gaypodcast #podcast #gay #lgbtq #queerpodcast #lgbt #lgbtpodcast #lgbtqpodcast #gaypodcaster #queer#instagay #podcasts #podcasting #gaylife #pride #lesbian #bhfyp #gaycomedy #comedypodcast #comedy #nyc #614 #shesnotdoingsowell #Jewlery #Anxiety #anger #sensative #GayUK Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/notwellpodcast)
Özlem is a high performing culturally diverse woman, based in Amsterdam. Born and raised in the Netherlands, she also has lived in Istanbul, Turkey and Aarhus, Denmark; and traveled across continents. Due to her multicultural identity she constantly moved between East and West, psychically but also in her heart and mind. She holds a Bachelor degree in Education, Master degree in Educational Sciences, and gained certificates in marketing, entrepreneurial sales, and coaching from institutions in the Netherlands and abroad. She is grateful for all the ‘official' education she has gained, for this has provided her with ways of thinking, allowed her to gain knowledge, and developed her intellect. Yet, wisdom is what she gained during all her travels, work, living abroad, spending time alone, and interacting with various people from different layers of society. Her journey in self development made her slowly get aware of who she is. After shedding some light on her true self, she started embracing her light and darkness at the same time. Getting to know herself and her lifelong passion of connecting to other human beings contributed to her constantly expanding emotional intelligence. She is very human and at the same time very commercial and sales-driven. She did business development in Europe for a technology Startup, had an international sales role at a multinational Danish fashion company, and taught at international schools abroad. She honors her feminine and masculine energy to learn, create, evolve and contribute to the world. She isn't fearless! She also has fears, yet she moves forward comfortably uncomfortable!Resources:https://www.ozkanozlem.com/Music:The YOGI MD Podcast Theme Music by Lisette Kelly (bass and guitar), Maya Bishop (vocals), & Nadine Kelly (percussion); Produced by Tim Buell.The Sides of the North from Commodity by Remedy Drive

Why should you be using social media as an artist? That's the question the Thriving Women Artists will be discussing this week. Find out what platforms Ping, Sarah, and Dorien use, how they gain benefits from them, and what content you should be posting. Why not check out the links to all the podcast's social media in the bios below. KEY TAKEAWAYS Sarah and Dorien mostly use Instagram but Ping tends to use TikTok as well as Instagram. These are primarily visual mediums which work well for artists. You can use social media to connect with other artists, gain inspiration, and discover new things that you have never seen before. Sarah has limited herself to 30 minutes on Instagram per day. She also gets a lot of work through her Instagram page. Ping is motivated to pick up a paintbrush by seeing other people's amazing work online. It's a good idea to have a watermark or signature on any work posted online. It's always worth not posting the highest resolution image you have online, so if someone takes it, they don't have the best version. Social media is just a good way to show your work. Tell the world what kind of artist you are and what areas you work in. It's better to focus on one or two platforms. Nobody has the time to post on everything. Sarah uses her website for the finished product, but Instagram is her play space, it can be messy on there. BEST MOMENTS ‘I've met people abroad and we stay connected via Instagram' ‘I'm actually quite lazy but I cover it with structure and rules' ‘You should do it because you like it. I'm not the kind to work out the algorithm' ABOUT THE PODCAST A serious and fun podcast for female creatives hosted by Ping, Dorien and Sarah, three happy artists from Amsterdam.

Podcast 207 This week, I have a question about how everything should be working together and why when you do bring everything together, your daily life will seem so much more focused and, more importantly, relaxed.

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein and I am your host for this show. I've been writing and producing videos for a few years now and over the years I have introduced a number of concepts that are designed to help you better manage your time and become more productive in what you do. It can be quite confusing if you picked things up a little ad hoc. This week's question is about how to bring it all together so it is seamless and logical. Now before I get to the question, the 2022 edition of my Create Your own Apple productivity course is now available, If you are enrolled in the course, this is a FREE update for you and if you are not, but would like to enrol in the course you can do so this week for an early bird discount price of $49.99 (it's normally $59.99) This course will show you how to build your own productivity system using only Apple's Productivity tools: Reminders, Notes, Calendar and iCloud. It's a great course and one, if you are in the Apple ecosystem, that will give you so much benefit. And the course includes how to set up the Time Sector System as well as my new GAPRA notes organisation system. All the details are in the show notes. Okay, on with the show and that means it's time for me to hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Beth. Beth asks: Hi Carl, I've followed your podcast for a while now and I know a lot of the things you teach. I was wondering if there is a particular way you apply would use each of those ideas? I get a little confused sometimes about the differences between some of them. Hi Beth, thanks for the question. There is a logical sequence for many of the principles I teach and when I saw your question I thought this would be a great way to explain how they all fit together. So. Let's begin with COD, that's Collect, Organise and Do. This is the foundation of all great productivity systems. If you are not collecting stuff—things like your tasks, your events and ideas, you are going to keep them in your head and that is when you will find yourself swamped and stressed out by the number of things you are trying to remember. Our brains are not very good at remembering things like that. You will then need some time, preferably each day, to organise what you collected. Asking some straightforward questions such as what is it? What do I need to do about it? And when will I do it? Are all parts of this process. When I describe organising in this way it seems like it will take a long time, but you soon become very quick at processing tasks using these questions. Just to give you a benchmark, I will collect around ten to fifteen things each day, and to process those at the end of the day takes me about five minutes. If a task, for example, doesn't need doing this week, all I need do is drag it to my Next Week or Next Month folder. My focus each day is then on doing the work I have assigned myself for that day. So where does the 2+8 Prioritisation fit? This is the daily planning process. The average person will have around twenty to twenty-five tasks per day including routines and regular work. If all of those had the same level of importance you would freeze. There's no way you can do that many tasks each day unless they take less than fifteen to twenty minutes to do. So, we need to get smart and choose the ten most important tasks for the day. Now the 2 parts of this refer to your two “MUST DO” tasks for the day. These are the two tasks you will do everything you can to complete. Now What these depend on the day and what you are currently working on. For instance, when I prepared this podcast, preparing the podcast script and doing my exercise were my two must-do tasks for the day. Yesterday, I had upload the videos for my Create Your Own Apple productivity course update and clean out my office (it really needed it). What you'll notice is that my objective tasks are not exclusively work-related. Sometimes they are, but I try to balance things. Now you might argue that cleaning out an office is not a priority, but we have a 12-week old puppy running around the house and I wanted to make sure there were no bits of paper or other such things hiding away on the floor. Puppies have a bad habit of chewing everything. The eight other tasks are the tasks I should do that day. These tasks come from my core work and my recurring areas of focus. For instance, posting my social media posts and responding to student questions are a part of my core work. Every day these tasks will come up here. There can be other areas where tasks drop into here. The most likely place would be project work. Again, to give you a benchmark figure, I will complete these ten tasks 90% of the time. It's usually weekends where I occasionally don't manage to complete them all. But, the two objective tasks have been completed every day. That is just what I do. It is who I am. I do my objectives every day. And that is the way you need to look at your two objectives. They are non-negotiable. You just do them. So when do you do your 2+8 Prioritisation planning? This is done before you end the day. Now, again when you first start this it will take longer than normal. For me, it takes around five or ten minutes. But that is likely because I never miss doing a weekly planning session. It is during the weekly planning session I set out what needs to be done that week and when I will do it. More often than not I will just be confirming that things are still relevant when I do the daily planning. Why the evening and not the morning? That's because what you want to be doing when you start the day is the most important work for the day. You do not want to be trying to plan in the morning—this is when you are at your freshest so knowing what you are going to start the day with is going to set you up for a great day. It starts the momentum. Now for me, I've been doing many of these actions for over ten years and on those days when I have not been able to do them, I feel very uncomfortable. For instance, I cannot go to bed without knowing what I need to do tomorrow. I just wouldn't sleep well. I know when I fly to Europe—a ten-hour flight—but with travel to the airport, and then catching my connecting flight I am travelling for around 18 hours, it throws me out. However, my flight from Korea to Amsterdam is at 1 am, so once we have taken off it's sleep time and when I arrive in Amsterdam I have a three-hour wait for my connecting flight, so I find myself a quiet corner, get a cup of coffee and do my planning and processing. Of course, when I am travelling it's rare I would have anything important to do. Often it's just to process my email's Action This Day folder and answer student questions. But, I still do it. It brings a sense of control to my day. I see it as who I am. It is just what I do. So when you look at it, a well organised day doesn't really involve a lot of additional work. The problem for most people is getting things organised in the first place. Often when someone embarks on building a productivity and time management system they have a lot of things all over the place and the hard part is getting that organised. Then there is developing the habits of collecting everything and giving yourself a few minutes each day to organise that stuff. That can take a few weeks. But, if you want to feel in control of what you are doing each day and would like to live a more intentional life, you will have to change some things. Living an intentional life where you have time to do all the things you want to do, will not happen by accident. You have to change, your habits have to change and change is difficult. I remember learning to drive a car, when I first started I had to think about every step to get the car moving forward. Now, when I jump in the car, there's no conscious thought at all. I just open the door, sit in the driver's seat and before I know it we are moving. How did that happen? It was all habit. And that's where you want to be focusing your attention. Building the habits. Set a time for doing your daily planning, make sure you automatically collect everything that comes your way into your inbox and make sure at some point over the weekend you do your weekly planning session. Once you have these habits embedded, it's easy. You just do it. I can promise you, Beth, that once these habits are embedded, you'll feel so much more in control and when you begin each day you know exactly what you will be doing. Thank you, Beth, for the question and thank you to you for listening. It just remains for me to wish you all a very very productive week.
Whilst watching a documentary about some poisonous frogs, Curio Janni in Amsterdam, started to wonder what would happen if a frog licked itself or another frog of the same species. She asks Dr Adam Rutherford and Professor Hannah Fry to investigate whether an animal would react badly to a toxin it itself produces? In essence, 'can a venomous snake kill itself by biting itself?' Of course the answer is complicated, but the sleuths know exactly who to ask. Steve Backshall, award-winning wildlife explorer, best known for his BBC series 'Deadly 60'. Author of 'Venom – Poisonous Creatures in the Natural World'. Steve has been bitten, stung and spat at by a plethora of venomous creatures during his career. He also studied the first-known venomous newt - the sharp-ribbed newt - a creature that has sharpened ribs that when it's under attack, it will squeeze its body force those ribs out through its skin, coating them in venom, which is then delivered into the mouth of an attacker. Professor Nick Casewell, studies venomous snakes and their impact on humans. He works on treatments for snakebites at the Liverpool School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Snakebites have a huge impact on communities in South Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa and South America. It's now been reinstated as one of the most serious neglected tropical diseases by the World Health Organisation. Traditional treatments - antivenins - can be expensive, difficult to access and don't always work - Nick is looking into alternative medicines to treat snakebite victims. Dr. Ronald Jenner is Principle Researcher in the Comparative Venomics group at the Natural History Museum's Life Sciences, Invertebrates Division and co-wrote the book ‘Venom -the secrets of nature's deadliest weapon.' He explains the evolutionary arms race between venomous predators and their prey and poisonous prey and their predators. He explains how resistance to venom has evolved and how venom has evolved to be more or less powerful over time, answering another Curio - Scott Probert's question on the evolution of venom. Christie Wilcox wrote 'Venomous – How Earth's Deadliest Creatures Mastered Biochemistry'. She studied the molecular basis of lionfish venom. Christie describes how venom and immunity to venom works at the molecular level. Presenters - Adam Rutherford and Hannah Fry Produced by Fiona Roberts
