While Nicole is taking a much-needed break, we are re-airing her first episodes on the basics of Bible study. If you didn't catch these episodes when they first aired, be sure to listen. These episodes lay the foundation for Nicole's simple but powerful approach to Bible study. **** If you've ever gone to a play, you'll have been handed a playbill before the program began. This playbill gives you some important information like the characters, the setting, and the scenes you'll see when the lights dim. The backstory helps us engage with what's in front of us. When we read the Bible, we also need a backstory. The problem is, we often want it to ignore the backstory and apply the Word immediately to our lives instead of asking what it meant to the original audience. But when we do this, we misapply Scripture. Join Nicole in this episode as she unpacks how we can understand what's going on behind the scenes of the passages we read.

Victorian carolers wouldn't go until they got some. But many Americans wouldn't know one if they saw one. The figgy pudding (or plum pudding or Christmas pudding) has been with us for many centuries, and in many forms. How did a Medieval savory soup become a fruity, boozy and exclusively Christmassy dessert?

Many business owners often start out with the best intentions and then get overwhelmed by all of the different things they need to do.

And that was the most stressful I've been in my entire life because I didn't have the real estate systems down. I have a whole bunch of CRM stuff down. But as far as transactions, coordinator, and assistants, that's pretty much all night trying to keep everything together every single day." - Matthew Kane "If you want to create any kind of sales career where you can grow through the roof, you need to leverage on systems. If you don't have those systems in place, you're going to be on the hamster wheel, chasing deal after deal, close a house, become unemployed, try to find another client, and do it all over again." - Matthew Kane "We're starting to do some team investments where I could essentially create a way for teammates to make additional revenue. I would leave it to the team to say, 'hey, you find a flip, you show me something where you can make a 30% return. I'll finance the flip, you manage the project.

Professor Nicolai Petro, professor of political science at the University of Rhode Island specializing in Ukraine and Russia, joins us to discuss the meeting between President Xi Jinping and Putin. The Presidents of Russia and China are meeting to discuss their bilateral partnership and mutual security issues regarding NATO and other appendages of the US empire. They will also be discussing other international affairs of significance to both world powers.Steve Poikonen, national organizer for Action4Assange, joins us to discuss Julian Assange. Chris Hedges writes that the US empire is in the process of executing Julian Assange for the crime of exposing it as a criminal enterprise. He describes Joe Bidan and the leaders who have pushed this lawfare against Assange as assassins and executioners.KJ Noh, activist, writer, and teacher, joins us to discuss China. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is again speaking out with aggression towards China. Blinken praised groups of nations that oppose China, such as AUKUS and The Quad, and vowed to make the Asian-Pacific area safe in accordance with US dictates. Dr. Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University, joins us to discuss the US prosecuting its Cold War against Russia and China in Africa. The US is now arguing that a Chinese military base in Africa is a threat to the United States because it faces the Atlantic Ocean. In another example of hypocritical bravado, the US is claiming that it has the right to have over 200 bases in the Asian Pacific deliberately intended to threaten China, but China's single African base is worthy of significant alarm.John Kiriakou, journalist, author, and host of The Back Story, joins us to discuss the CIA. Recent astounding revelations that CIA personnel were involved in pedophilia are made worse by the inaction of the intelligence agency. Observers are considering whether the incidences of pedophilia and the related cover-ups are indicative of a twisted and perverted culture that could be related to the Epstein intelligence operation. Scott Ritter, former UN weapon inspector in Iraq, joins us to discuss several military hotspots that the US may be stirring up. There are some indications that President Biden may be backing away from an all-out military confrontation in Ukraine. Also, Israel is again claiming that they are preparing for military aggression against Iran, and General Douglas Macgregor evaluates potential US military engagements in eastern Europe. Dan Lazare, author, investigative journalist, and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss the slaughter of ten Afghan civilians by US troops. He also talks about the US's refusal to punish military personnel who are involved in the indiscriminate deaths of civilians.Dr. Colin Campbell, a Washington, DC, news correspondent, joins us to discuss the US economy. President Biden is moving forward with a plan to privatize Medicare. Also, we discuss inflation and whether the actual numbers may be underreported due to issues related to rent and housing.

John Kiriakou, co-host of The Backstory on Radio Sputnik, joins us to talk about the curious case of Operation Whistle Pig, where a reporter was contacted by a potential source, only to be revealed later that this “source” was actually planting information and had mined data on the reporter in order to vet her. We talk about how the FBI eventually got involved and eventually revealed a wide web of surveillance that goes beyond this particular case, and how this story up-ends perceptions about whistleblowing, the objectives of certain leakers, and how government agencies deal with cases like these. Dan Kovalik, author and human rights and labor lawyer, joins us to talk about the annoying tensions between the U.S., Russia, Ukraine, the EU and NATO, and how we sometimes need to look beyond the bluster portrayed in the media, which has been inflating the risks over a war in the region. We talk about how despite the media bombast which has portrayed Biden and NATO standing fast in their demands in the region, there has been a recognition of grievances by Russia and the rebel regions despite Ukraine requesting more Western involvement. We also talk about the school shooting in Oxford, Michigan, and the legal fallout so far, and the labor struggle at Kellogg's, where workers are continuing their strike after failed negotiations with management.Mitchell Plitnick, political analyst, writer and president of ReThinking Foreign Policy, joins hosts Michelle Witte and Bob Schlehuber to talk about the ongoing negotiations over the nuclear deal with Iran taking place in Vienna, the ups and downs that have seen them almost fall apart, but that now seem to be taking a more positive note. We also talk about the visit of Israeli PM Naftali Bennett to the United Arab Emirates, as the two countries seek to deepen ties following the Abraham Accords and will likely discuss Iran's nuclear program, as well as the Israeli government labeling six Palestinian NGOs as terrorist groups and how this is yet another effort to destroy Palestinian civil society.

Christmas and charity are as natural a pairing as you might imagine. But the long history of charity at Christmas time has a few things worth exploring. For example, who has historically done the charitable giving, and why. And how the Victorians generally, and Charles Dickens specifically, laid the foundation for the modern form of Christmas charity that we know today.

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk. You'll recognize yourself in these true-life stories from (mostly) women who are walking their lives while their lives walk them and the lasting difference their journeys have made. I'm your host, Diane Wyzga.Today my guest is Jeffrey Tan: Pathfinder, Transformation  Coach and Leadership Mastery Facilitator/Trainer who is joining us from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.Jeffrey helps people explore their paths in their personal and professional growth and development. Years of managing and working with people from all walks of life led him to a deep  understanding of human behaviors and attitudes. In 1998 Jeffrey attended a Leadership Program to improve himself, and the rest - as they say - is history. Helping people develop their best selves became his passion. I've invited Jeffrey to talk with us about changing the narrative that no longer works for you, RISE the signature training program, trekking - including Nepal - and, parenting on COVID lock-down. Welcome to the podcast, Jeffrey!    Minutes 31:1200 to 3:01       Intro3:01 to 9:20       Start From Where You AreQuestion: I understand that there is some jungle trekking available if I came to visit you. And if so, do you have a favorite jungle to trek?Jeffrey has 3 favorite treks he enjoys every weekend.One is still big jungle and the other two are second generation with rubber treesThe places are much green for him and will make do for nowQuestion: If we got to trek together, what's the first thing I might notice about you?  Jeffrey would check in with host's familiarity with trekking, health and ability so he knows the appropriate trails to tackleEither we would go to easier trails or the more exciting parts as he saw fitQuestion: And if we got to one of the more exciting parts of the forest, and had some time to trek along the path what might I get to know about you as my Pathfinder?Jeffrey will check in now and then to see if host is okay, still in good shape and able to walk as well as enjoy the walkVery conscious about who he brings and how they enjoy the experienceStory: Jeffrey brought an ex-girlfriend's mom (actually she tagged along). She claimed to be pretty fit so away they went up a slope (45 to 50 degree incline): “Hey! This is first time you met me and you want to kill me already?”      Jeffrey is very conscious of his walking partners after that episodeQuestion: What does this Mama Hill area look like? Would you describe it for us.Mama Hill is one of the most challenging climbs in the forestBegins with nice smooth downhill in a valley to a little stream.Path is rooted so you need to watch your footingBirds chirping, breezes, very pleasantCrossing the stream is the moment of awareness: how will we get back up? Only 10 to 15 minutes to trek out but very steep9:20 to 17:50       A Bit of Back Story. Something Happened. Change the Narrative. Reinvent YourselfThis climb is a very good metaphor for what we will be talking about as we go forward. Life going up and down and up again. In all the best books and movies, life is being lived and then something happens. Something in your life called you to reinvent yourself, to change the narrative that was no longer working. Question: Before we get to Trekking and RISE the signature training workshop would you share with us how Life walked you while you were walking your life.Jeffrey got married late in life, age 44Enjoyed good 7 to 10 years with 2 wonderful childrenWhen Jeffrey's daughter was 7 years old Life walked in and said, “Hey! Things are not working out.”The divorce messed things up - Jeffrey wasn't preparedIt was quite a tear down for him and messed him up real badJeffrey was in love with his children as well as his wifeMis-communications got in the way; for which Jeffrey also bears responsibilityThis divorce required Jeffrey to take the hard road out of the experienceHost: friends of Jeffrey's would prove helpful to his recoveryJeffrey's story: was very depressed; going through a lot of pain; work was getting done but a friend commented, “I see you here but I don't feel you.”This friend spurred Jeffrey to return to hikingLeading a hike with 2 buddies, another friend said, “Jeffrey, I see you here but I don't feel you. It's as if there is no soul in that body walking in front of me.”This comment stopped Jeffrey!“I see this smiling face but I don't feel you; you're like soul less.” This moment caused Jeffrey to share what had happened with his 2 buddiesWe don't share our pain until a friend interrupts our situationIf Jeffrey's friend can see him this way, what do others see? Zombie-likeJeffrey sat with his friends and had a chat - no judgment - only support helped him a great dealNo judgment about either party - no choosing sides - but compassion for him and his children, with expressions of supportThis love and support brought him backHis friends were a bridge or the helpers to walk alongside him17:50 to 22:56       RISE - Jeffrey Tan's Signature Training Program Question: Will you help us understand this experience and how it connects to RISE your signature training program RISE. Of all things you could have created, why this?RISE is designed to explore creating possibilities from these uncertain times and create the life you want; a life in which you Take Charge of Your Life and BE in charge. Join us and discover how you can claim victory and stop being a victim of circumstance.RISE was also because of the COVID pandemicJeffrey has always been involved with people developmentAs a result of Jeffrey's life experiences he's more compassionateBefore the divorce Jeffrey was logical and tried to make sense of other people's pain; whereas now he can see situations from both sides and bring empathy to the tableHow did RISE come about? Jeffrey lost job and income with the pandemic; no new projects and no new moneyFor 5 months or so Jeffrey lived on savingsJeffrey hit a slump again because of low funds and bills and having children to provide for  He realized that if he woke up feeling blue somehow he felt better by the evening hours; he told himself, “I need to do something about this! Moment over.”The pity party has endedJeffrey realized that his recovery happened pretty quickly; probably because of his coaching/training experience which led to an “Ah Ha! I have the training. Everyone one needs a coach.” Started RISE to help people pick themselves up.When we are down everything looks hopeless - RISE helps people see possibilities againJust like his personal experience with the divorce; Daddy can say he loves you but if he doesn't act, what's the point?Jeffrey's 2 children are his inspiration to Rise Up!22:56 to 29:11       Tips to Help See the PossibilitiesHost: Jeffrey's children are delightful! As well as being a good barometer to the feelings of the Big Humans. If a parent is unable to show how they love, the children pick it up. The children pull us along, like his friends helped him and now he does this for other. Question: of all his years of leadership training, what 3 skills or traits or qualities are most helpful to Jeffrey working with people today?If you have a problem, be aware and acknowledge you have it. Denial keeps us from recoveryKnow that you are the only one who can deal with the problem. Our friends can be there for us; but we have to do the hard work to get out of the depressive Zombi-like mode and back on trackWe also need to have the courage and strength to take action. It's not easy but it can be done if we are brave enoughHost: having a friend who can help show us the way out can help guide us with courage, determination and resilienceJeffrey's story about his trip in Annapurna. The sherpa can bring you from one point to another point along the trail; but the sherpa will not walk your walk; you must carry your own backpack and walk your walkJeffrey cannot tell a client what to do or not but looking in from outside as 3rd party looking in can suggest X, Y or Z, or, ask: what if?  We have within us to do what it takes; but we often don't see if for ourselvesJust like the sherpas who say: Come along! Not very high! You struggle to walk - I know you can do it!Jeffrey will champion you on - take the time you need to do it your wayQuestion: Is that where the name Pathfinder came from? Because I understand that's what you call yourself.  29:11 to 31:12      OutroHere we are, at the end of the road but not the journey. Thank you for listening to Part 1 of this episode of Stories From Women Who Walk with your host Diane Wyzga and my guest Jeffrey Tan, Pathfinder, Transformation Coach and Leadership Facilitator who joined us from his home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A Charlie Brown Christmas became one of the most successful Christmas television specials ever. But the odds were stacked against it in 1965. Written and produced under a crazy deadline, the network executives were sure it would flop like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. But of course, things turned out differently.  This episode includes an interview with Benjamin Clark, curator of the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA.
