Today: Wednesday 18 January 2023 CMP20230118 At the beginning of the year, the Australian Government introduced measures to combat the growing spread of COVID-19 in China for Aussie's visiting the country. Naturally the federal opposition party has been somewhat critical of the measures… they have to to stay relevant to their conservative voter base, but the Chief Medical Officer has come out again the government's preventative measures. Those planning a trip to China are mostly supportive of the Albanese Government's announcement. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-01-01/australia-introduces-testing-requirements-for-chinese-travellers/101820078 https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-01-04/chinese-australians-travel-plans-up-in-air-as-covid-grips-china/100489704 Follow and turn notifications on so you can be alerted when new episodes are released.

Erin Brockovich is probably the most famous name in Law in the world. Making a name for herself when she went up against utility company Pacific Gas & Electric and helped bring together the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit in U.S. history on behalf of the people of Hinkley, CA who had been affected by polluted water.Erin went on to become instrumental in numerous other high profile cases, usually up against massive corporate entities who are using their size to get away with either polluting the environment or otherwise neglecting humans basically. Erin was out in Australia doing work with Shine Lawyers - whom she's been working with for over ten years now, in particular around the issue of PFAS, a toxic chemical contained in firefighting foam used widely in Australia between the 1970s and 2000. The substance was sprayed over defence force bases, shipping ports, and regional firefighting stations for decades. It leaches into the soil and surrounding waterways, causing contamination. In 1987, American authorities wrote to the Australian Government to warn about the dangers of PFAS but nothing was done. Research in the United States has linked exposure to PFAS to cancer and a dozen other diseases. Residents in many Australian towns, including Bullsbrook in Western Australia where Erin visited during her visit, say their dogs have been riddled with cancer and die young. They can't drink the tap water. They bathe infants in bottled water. There have also been reports of birth defects. Unfortunately, it is difficult to prove in Australian law causation between exposure to this chemical and disease. The people at Shine reached out to me to ask if I'd have Erin on the show, so of course I said yes. I'm terrified to speak about this kind of thing, so I know enough that backing away from it is not the path to freedom - I have to lean into it. So I flew my self on a carbon-offset flight down to Melbourne to speak with this incredible human being. Erin is as you would expect. Incredibly Clever, Blisteringly Fast, Tall, Powerful, Passionate and a Firehose of Fury.I get why she's good at what she does. Because if you're going toe to toe in a boardroom with a company that's got political donations protecting them, you'll want to have a secret weapon up your sleeve - and that secret weapon is Erin Brockovich. This one blew my socks off. Find her on instagram @the_real_erin_brockovich, let her know you heard her here. And come now to the beautiful Langham hotel in Melbourne to sit eye to eye with one of the best legal minds of our time, and one of the most ferocious environmental activists you'll ever encounter.

2023 has already seen the Australian Government make the loony decision to test Chinese travelers for covid that is already here. We saw the PizzaTate human trafficking raid in Romania Join me for the first Tim's News Explosion of the new year where so far it is the same clown world on repeat. China will be opening up to the world on January 8 following the CCP's covid zero backflip after brave Chinese citizens protested against 3 years of rolling lockdowns back in November. This should be a good news story but in the West we are told to be afraid that some new variant might be made in China since they have stopped mass testing. As a result, several Western nations including Australia are mandating covid tests for travellers arriving from China. This new restriction on travellers from China is being done for political reasons not based on science, Andrew Bolt and Nigel Farage support it due to their suspicion of the CCP. But this move has empowered those who want a rerun of restrictions like Monique Ryan. As covid-19 enters its fourth year there is evidence that the vaccines are fuelling the evolution of variants. Despite this Australia's Health Minister Mark Butler has already announced further covid vaccine distribution plans for this winter. In the UK where winter is in full swing the NHS is recording more flu hospitalizations than covid. England's Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty has admitted that thousands of middle-aged people are dying of heart conditions untreated during lockdowns. A doctor has told Brits not to go on long runs to get fit to avoid putting pressure on the NHS. The summer youth crime wave has claimed the life of Brisbane mother Emma Lovell. Two teens with violent criminal histories have been charged with her murder and the attempted murder of her husband. In response, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced ‘tough laws' increasing penalties for violent offenders. In Melbourne Police believe the bodies of two women found in the CBD are linked to the same perpetrator. A video has gone viral of a woman jumping the counter at an Adelaide McDonalds and behaving aggressively. Former kickboxing champion and masculinity advocate Andrew Tate was by local police arrested in Romania on human trafficking charges along with his brother Tristian. This followed his baiting of Greta Thunberg bragging about his carbon footprint which she responded by claiming he had small dick energy. It was rumoured though later debunked that Romanian police found out Tate was in Romania because he displayed local pizza boxes in a video trolling Greta. Andrew Tate will remain in a Romanian prison for 30 days. ABC radio shock jock Phillip Adams has claimed Don Bradman was friends with legendary singer Kamahl not because he wasn't racist but because he made Kamahl an honorary white. A trans girl TikToker has gone viral for claiming they were experiencing period pain, some transwomen are putting tomato sticks down their pants to simulate period blood. The Scottish Police have defended using the term Minor Attracted Persons (MAPS) to describe pedophiles in a document prepared for the EU as it is their official terminology.  Email: me@timwilms.comMessage: https://t.me/timwilmsWebsite: http://timwilms.com/Twitter: https://twitter.com/wilmsfrontMinds: https://www.minds.com/timwilmsGab: https://gab.com/timwilmsTelegram: https://t.me/wilmsfront Support the Show:Membership: http://www.theunshackled.net/membershipDonate: https://www.theunshackled.net/donate/ Other Unshackled Links:Website: https://www.theunshackled.netFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TUnshackledTwitter: https://twitter.com/Un_shackledGab: https://gab.ai/theunshackledTelegram: https://t.me/theunshackledMinds: https://www.minds.com/The_UnshackledMeWe: https://mewe.com/p/theunshackled Music and Graphics by James Fox HigginsVoice Over by Morgan MunroSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Brendon Baker joins us from Canberra, Australia to talk about his debut book, Valuable Change.  He is the Founder and Managing Director of Valuable Change Co, a management agency that helps leaders keep transformation simple and ensure it pays off. Their clients include high-growth tech firms, well-known Australian household names like AGL and South32, and all three levels of the Australian Government. For many organizations, change often involves long meetings, lots of reports, confusion about the goals, and worry about how long it will take and cost. These complexities make 85% of change initiatives in companies worthless. Brendon has 12+ years experience in change management and believes the profession has over-complicated change management approaches. He has taken it upon himself to simplify it and in doing so help change leaders drive real value. We discuss what every change leader needs to know to ensure any change they lead delivers the desired results, and what valuable change looks like. Scientifically-backed momentum strategies that change leaders can use to accelerate their change success. In particular, he could talk about an idea called the momentum path that enables leaders to diagnose the current momentum level of each of their team members. Brendon's tips on how to generate phenomenal change buy-in at your organization.

With so many media outlets hawking bad economic news to improve their ratings, you'd be excused if you thought the entire world's economy was on the verge of collapse. So I thought it was time to get a well-balanced, well-researched view. To that end, I knocked on the door of Christopher Joye, one of Australia's most respected economists and fund managers. It's a slightly scary episode 610 of The (13 year-old, award-winning) Small Business Big Marketing podcast. A little more aboutCoolabah Capital founder Christopher Joye … Last week I had the pleasure of hearing today's guest speak about the state of the Australian economy and what the coming 12 months looks like from a business and investment perspective.   His name is Christopher Joye, and he's one of Australia's leading economists.    He's the founder of Coolabah Capital, a funds management business with $7B under management Prior to starting Coolabah in 2011 he worked for Goldman Sachs in London, and for the Reserve bank of Australia. In 2008, the Australian Government invested $15 billion behind a policy proposal he personally developed He was invited by the Rockefeller and MacArthur Foundations to advise the Obama Administration on the US housing crisis And he writes a weekly column for the Australian Financial Review   Now, in the spirit of total honesty, the economy is a topic that I'm no expert on. I scraped through year 12 Economics, and was glad to see the end of it.   So this was a hard interview to prep for, and there were times when I simply didn't know what I should ask next.   I'll now take my dunce hat off and say with hand on heart, that despite my ignorance, Chris comes through with the goods. He has an uncanny way of (most of the time) making the complicated beautifully simple.   The first part of the chat is all about his current business, then we get into the heavy stuff. So, put your big pants on as Chris gives us his deeply researched insights into what we can expect economically in 2023 and beyond, and what we can do as business owners to prepare for it and ensure as smooth a ride as possible.   And I know it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway. Chris's advice is of a general nature, not specific to your business. So please do your own research before acting on anything he suggests.   Here's Chris describing Coolabah Capital …   Resources mentioned in this episode of your favorite marketing podcast Coolabah Capital's official website Predicting War website LiveWire Markets   Services every business owner needs that Timbo recommends How to generate organic traffic to your website(without spending anything on advertising) High converting website designers(They built this website - take this simple quiz and see where yours needs improving) DIY SEO training - The most cost-effective way to get on page 1 of Google(20% off with discount code Timbo20) Proven customer attraction strategy(and ridiculously cheap)    Businesses that made this podcast possible (please support them) DELL Technologies - Small business solutions Studio 1 Design - High converting website designers Fun Escapes - Proven customer attraction ideas Hawk Academy - DIY SEO training (discount code Timbo20 for 20% off)   Thanks for tuning in.
