Balamurali Balu, who goes by Bala, immigrated to the United States from Southern India. He completed his PhD at Georgia Tech. Landed his dream job at Intel in Portland, Oregon. Married the woman he loved. And had two young daughters. He was what his family called “settled”, living the life his parents had always wanted for him. But six years into his career, he was burnt out and he missed doing the thing he loved most in this world. So, he quit. Today, Bala pursues music full-time where he scores large Tamil film industry projects and presents his new work at The Immigrant Story live storytelling events, constantly innovating new songs, new sounds, and new music. Many Roads to Here is a production of The Immigrant Story. This episode was produced by Emily Denny. Our audio editing and music was done by Bala. Post production was done by Gregg Palmer.

Mitzi Asai Loftus and her son Toby talk frankly about her memories of growing up in Hood River, Oregon; her childhood incarceration in a Japanese-American internment camp; dating and racism; changing and reclaiming names; and what it means to grow up mixed-race. Please note this episode contains mentions of suicide as well as racial slurs against Asian-Americans. Mitzi was born in Hood River, Oregon. Her parents, immigrants from Japan, owned orchards there. But when Mitzi was ten, she was forced from her home and taken to an internment camp in California and then in Wyoming, as part of the U.S. wartime incarceration of Japanese-Americans. Many Roads to Here is a production of The Immigrant Story. Many thanks to Mitzi Asai and Toby Asai Loftus for their time and storytelling, and to St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Beaverton, Oregon for allowing us to record there.

Off the top, Sean and Migel dig into Miguel's feelings on the uneven and disappointing Raptors season to date before tossing out a potentially controversial opinion about O.G. Anunoby and why moving him by the deadline might be the smartest move the Raptors could make to rebalance their roster.

Twenty-one-year-old Samir Mustafic was in the small orchard behind his home in Bosnia when Serbian bombs rained down upon his family's property. His mother and sister died in the bombing on June 30, 1993, 14 months into the Bosnian war. Mustafic's injuries were so severe that few gave him any chance of survival. But a series of unlikely events—miracles or coincidences, depending on one's perspective—sent him to the United States for treatment. Doctors in Roseburg, Ore., worried at first that there was little they could do to assure him a productive life. But today Mustafic is a software architect for the state of Oregon. He is married to his high school sweetheart and is the father of teenage twins. “I truly had so many miracles,” he marvels. Many Roads to Here is a production of The Immigrant Story. This episode was produced and edited by Elayna Yussen, with post production by Greg Palmer. Our Executive producer is Sankar Raman.

Guest of this appointment is Kirsten Ring Murray, one of the principals and owners of the internationally renowned firm Olson Kundig Architects. Founded in 1966 by Jim Olson, the practice, Seattle-based, with a new office in New York City, during the five decades of its existence has enormously grown, expanding its portfolio beyond residences, which was a distinctive part of their realizations, covering more than fifteen countries on five continents, from amazing natural locations to crowded urban contexts. Their versatile full-service design besides residences, often for art collectors, includes museums, academic and commercial buildings, hospitality, interior design, master planning and landscape. The narrative and the design approach, contemplating the relationship between dwelling and landscape and encouraging the connection between people and surroundings continue, whether in a natural habitat or in an urban metropolis, bringing context to its existence and purpose, creating an experience of place, even along the street. Careful consideration of topographical and climatic conditions, use of materials worked in close collaboration with craftsmen and artists, leaving frequently, on purpose, visible maker's hand signs are the main ingredients, contributing to tell an authentic story of the place. The firm recognized by the AIA with the National Architecture Firm Award, has been named 4 times one of the Top Ten Most Innovative Companies in Architecture by Fast Company and included on the AD100 list 14 times. The owners have been honoured with some of the nations and world's highest design awards: Jim Olson, the Seattle AIA Medal of Honor, Tom Kundig a National Design Award in Architecture from the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, inductions into Interior Design Magazine's Hall of Fame and the AIA Seattle Medal of Honor, only to mention a few. Their works published worldwide by the most prestigious magazines, on the covers of The New York Times magazine, ARCHITECT, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest, Wall Street Journal are collected in four monographs. Our guest, Kirsten Ring Murray, has realized a range of project types, nationally and internationally published, and awarded. She has received many AIA Honor Awards, in recognition of her contributions, playing a particularly relevant role in the firm's culture, expanding the boundaries of the corporatist spirit, pioneering programs, and injecting vital energy into core activities. The conversation starts exploring a background that may have led Kirsten to become an architect. Grown up, experiencing various places West of United States, passionate about drawing and reading, with a keen interest in science fiction, was particularly attracted by the environment as landscape, by an organic architecture tendency emerging at that time in Colorado, with the main attraction for Paolo Soleri's arcology and curiosity in the experimentation of arts and craft of Modernism. Joined the studio in Seattle in the late ‘89, a studio of 11 and now of over 250 people, she was drawn by different reasons as the firm's legacy grounded on craft, integration of architecture and art and always felt very comfortable in a place, where conversation and dialogue were highly appreciated and the individual expression unusually respected and encouraged. Challenging and active, the practice has over the years maintained this distinctive note, believing in the importance of debate and considering a precious opportunity to work with different personalities, many individual voices in a synergistic effort. Great contribution to strengthen teamwork collaboration and to open a dialogue with the external community goes to Kirsten, who has promoted a series of original and successful initiatives, especially through [storefront], a common space, part of their office building, transformed into an authentic laboratory of exchange and experimentation. We dwell then on the physical ambiance of their studio in Seattle, able to transmit with an extraordinary legibility an identity, mainly based on a continuous evolutive process and we analyze, in this regard, their capability to translate the peculiar character and core values of a company and its team in every workspace they realized. We dedicate a special reference to the recent LeBron James Innovation Center at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, a new construction, that brilliantly communicates the brand's agenda of speed, innovation, craft, fostering collective collaborative spirit and to the conversion of a historic building into a new dynamic, healthy and versatile environment, in the respect of individuality, for a provocative New York City Media company. Search for custom-made solutions, kinetic elements, exposed ‘mechanical wizardry' and exquisitely refined, detailed finishes, visually and emotionally engaging, is an important peculiarity of the practice, especially of Tom Kundig, often referred to as a 'maker architect' and Kirsten explains the relevant and fascinating potentialities that this creative ‘pre-digital' process embodies. Architect as a ‘mediator' between nature and built, able to offer continuity between indoor-outdoor and authentic immersive, intimate experiences in the place, mediating rationality and poetry is another integral aspect of their design approach, that we explore in regard to residences, especially in magnificent and powerful natural contexts, as Slaughterhouse Beach, in Maui, Hawaii. Among extraordinary, at top commissions that have involved Kirsten, from practitioner to principal, there is an affordable condominium, conceived almost 15 years ago, 1111 East Pike, that, despite the economic constraints, still impresses for its innovative and fresh unconventionality, its visual appeal and flexible internal solutions, revealing a passionate commitment to enrich with any architectural gesture everyone's life. We conclude the conversation with a particularly rewarding project, Paradise Road Housing at Smith College, five apartment units arranged around a central courtyard, forming a community not only between students but between the campus and the larger Northampton community. A LEED® Gold housing complex intended for self-sufficient seniors and students, celebrating inter-generational social interaction and connections.
Last month, four candidates of Vietnamese heritage from the Portland metro area were elected to serve in the Oregon House of Representatives. Along with Rep. Khan Pham, who won reelection in November, Oregon now boasts the largest number of Vietnamese American state lawmakers in the nation. We hear from Representative-elect Hai Pham, a Democrat and pediatric dentist whose House District 36 covers Hillsboro, parts of Beaverton and unincorporated Washington County. Rep. Khanh Pham is a Democrat representing House District 45, which covers Northeast and Southeast Portland. In 2020, she became the first Asian American lawmaker elected to serve in the Oregon state Legislature.
Todd Carpenter is the owner of The Last Stop Saloon, a bar and restaurant in The Dalles that dates back to the 1880s. He also owns two other taverns in Beaverton and Portland. He and his partner were drawn to The Dalles nearly six years ago by its “300 days of sunshine,” a community that rallies together and the proximity to myriad outdoor recreational opportunities. But one thing he doesn't care for is the low pay service sector workers make, along with a lack of affordable housing, affordable daycare and medical services such as vision and dental care. So Carpenter offers his staff a minimum salary of $17.25 an hour and provides paid time off. He also entered into an agreement with The Dalles to redevelop three downtown properties, including an outdoor event space scheduled to open in the spring. He also plans to refurbish two floors above the dining space in The Last Stop Saloon to convert them into rental units for service sector workers. But Carpenter's business decisions have not been without controversy. Last June, Oregon OSHA issued Carpenter a nearly $9,000 citation for his decision to allow indoor dining in violation of a public health order to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Wasco County. Carpenter joins us to share what the experience has taught him and why he thinks businesses in The Dalles need to play a greater role in making it a place where workers can afford to live and raise their families.

In August, Beaverton police arrested the alleged leader of a crime ring they say trafficked more than 44,000 stolen catalytic converters since January 2021 — the street value of which is estimated to be over $22 million. Police said at the time that the Portland-area crime ring stretched as far as New York, but offered few details about the alleged ringleader or where the stolen parts ended up. Willamette Week reporter Lucas Manfield tracked the stolen converters from the Portland metro area to Long Island to a New Jersey metal recycler. He joins us to talk about his reporting.
Portland photographer Intisar Abioto's work is showing in two galleries. The exhibition at the Art Gallery at The Patricia Reser Center for the Arts in Beaverton showcases her own pieces and those of the other women artists in her family. She's also part of the Oregon Contemporary show in Portland. The historic Cannady home in NE Portland is the subject of one of these installations. People working to elevate Black history say this residence that once belonged to Black activist and civil leader Beatrice Morrow Cannady is a place that should be recognized as historically and culturally significant. Intisar Abioto said, not only that, but when she learned it was for sale earlier this year, she thought it could be reclaimed by the Black community as a place to gather, organize and create art.She spearheaded an effort to buy the property. Abioto worked with other artists, Black political leaders, business owners, historians, activists and someone who volunteered to finance a backup offer on the $1,135,000 home. The sellers didn't accept the offer, but Abioto says there are still valuable lessons to be learned from both Beatrice Cannady's history in Portland, and the story of the community effort to buy her home. She joins us to talk about art, history and the present moment, and how this experience synthesizes all three.
This week we have another podcast takeover. Brice and Jess of the “What Happens in the Woods” podcast tell us a story. Kaylee Birdzell was a young, beautiful and much loved woman who was brutally murdered in August of 2022. A suspect was quickly found and was awaiting his arraignment when he decided to make an attempt to end his life in jail. Sadly, the details of all of this senselessness have spread far and wide across the nation, all while Kaylee's family is grieving and searching for justice. Please keep this family in your thoughts as they navigate the coming months. For dinner, we decided to share her favorite meal, which was chicken Alfredo. For dessert, we had funfetti cake and for drinks we Slo-Jams Sauvignon Blanc, a favorite on this podcast.

Over the last couple of months, you may have heard the term “swatting” being used to describe hoax shooting reports and bomb threats at schools around the country. “Swatting” - in which a caller contacts police and claims to be in the school building where the threat is in progress - generates an extremely rapid response by law enforcement, often not leaving time for police to verify the caller's claims. In fact, the calls have been difficult to trace as most have used encrypted internet signals and are actually theorized to be coming from outside of the U.S. Unfortunately, these “swatting” incidents have recently impacted some of our neighboring school districts including Beaverton, North Clackamas, Portland Public, and Tigard-Tualatin. While we certainly hope none of our schools fall victim to a “swatting” scam, the potential is there and we are doing our best to prepare and be ready in advance. District administration is debriefing with other districts to gather lessons learned, and is convening with high school principals and our law enforcement partners to discuss response and mitigation strategies. Our Featured Students are from Glencoe's Unified Soccer Team! They placed third in this year's Special Olympics Unified Regional games, held on Saturday, October 22nd at Wilsonville High School.

Both schools competed in Unified Basketball and Kickball last year, with Glencoe's team taking first place in the regional basketball tournament. The team's next stop is the Special Olympics Unified State Games at Providence Park on Saturday, November 19th. Way to go, students, and good luck at the State Games! You make us Proud to be HSD!

Have you ever gotten to a place in life where you've had a moment to reflect on your journey and the decisions you made, or didn't make, to get you to where you are today? Oftentimes, when having conversations with others who have been walking in faith for more than a few years, they can point back to pivotal moments where they saw God divinely orchestrate the details as they took steps forward. Even getting to pause to look back and see the ways things pieced together can be eye opening and hopefully life-giving when you see that truly every step of your journey got you to where you are now. And even the moments you wish you could unwrite, were pivotal in bringing you to this present moment in time. In today's conversation I get to dive into the seemingly unlikely ways God would move and have favor over a ministry, that started simply through a prayer and a desire to bring the loving and life saving message of Jesus to others through a life surrendered to what God could do. Today I have the honor and privilege of connecting with a gentleman I had the chance to work for years and years ago but also thrilled to share more about the ministry He is leading as President and CEO. Kevin Palau is President and CEO of the Luis Palau Association. Kevin joined LPA in 1985 and began directing the day-to-day operation of the ministry in the late 1990s. Under his leadership, LPA has united tens of thousands of churches in hundreds of cities to love and serve their communities and clearly share the Good News of Jesus. During Kevin's time at LPA he has also helped develop a global network of hundreds of partner evangelists and launched a City Gospel Movements effort that helps unite churches to serve their city and proclaim the Good News on an ongoing basis. Kevin helps lead TogetherPDX, a sustainable, united movement of churches in Portland, Oregon. His book, Unlikely: Setting Aside Our Differences to Live Out the Gospel describes the ongoing impact of the movement. He lives in Beaverton, Oregon with his wife, Michelle, and enjoys serving on the boards of Alpha USA, Christians Against Poverty, and Transforming the Bay with Christ.) Looking back over the years of incredible moments that God has showed his unrelenting favor and has pieced so many things together; Im sure has been a sweet reminder of God's intricate hand at work through the many years of ministry with Luis Palau Association. As you listen today, I hope you're not only inspired and encouraged by the incredible work and ministry of LPA, and stories Kevin has to share. But also get to spend some time today thinking through where YOU have seen God intricately work details together in your life to bring you to where you are today.

Ghaith Shahib fled Iraq as the United States prepared to invade his country. Instead of finishing high school, he left home on a harrowing journey across the globe in search of safety and a life away from conflict. It's been years now since Ghaith has felt the confrontation of war in his daily life, but an unexpected incident in the relative comfort of the city he now calls home, brings a new perspective on what it means to be a victim of war.

Most people look at a potential job from the standpoint of “What am I going to earn?” Austin Finch, Funnel Media Group's podcast editor and today's guest on Market Dominance Guys, talks with our host, Chris Beall, about an additional and very important way of looking at any new employment you're considering.

Augusto Carneiro is the owner of Nossa Familia Coffee in Portland, OR. Augusto likes to say his coffee shop journey started backward because he grew up with his family growing coffee in Brazil (since the 1890s), he started selling coffee, and then he opened his first shop. He started Nossa Familia Coffee with a $400 investment in August 2004. A piece of wisdom he heard and still finds true today is: “It always takes longer than you think and always costs way more than you think.” He used this wisdom to expand into three locations and a roastery. They even started a zero waste cafe and have a fully electric delivery fleet. Augusto is offering a special discount to you, my listeners, to try their coffee.

In this episode, Cherise is joined by Robin Wilcox and Susan Barnes, two Principals from Skylab Architecture in Portland, Oregon. Robin and Susan share their insights into their work on the Serena Williams Building at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. At more than 1 million square feet, the building establishes new links to the existing campus through restored wetlands, public plazas, and view corridors. The architecture was inspired by Nike's heritage while providing innovative workspaces enabling designers to continue to imagine and deliver the future of sport. Anchored by a ten-story tower, the building marks the epicenter of campus for this visionary company. Serena Williams, the ultimate phenom/warrior/muse, is personified in the building's narrative via the samurai armor-inspired exterior and abstracted wing of the goddess Nike evident in the tripartite massing. To see project photos and details discussed, visit https://www.arcat.com/podcast (arcat.com/podcast) This project provided unique challenges and opportunities - a complex tower that cantilevers on one corner provides an open plaza, an innovative 150-foot-long Connector bridge made of a rotational steel truss tube functions as a collaboration space, a 50-foot subterranean parking garage required extensive coordination to develop a column grid that achieved continuous columns from the garage through to retail and office floors above, and much more.

You've probably already heard the term “trauma informed” but maybe you're wondering what exactly this looks like in education? In season 3 episode 3, Leonne interviews Jeff Crapper, a CTE Teacher on Special Assignment in Beaverton, an award-winning science and health sciences teacher, and a facilitator in OEA's Becoming a Trauma Informed Educator series.He's also a parent with years of experience navigating systems with children who have experienced trauma. Jeff asserts that student behavior is often a manifestation of something else. With a trauma-informed approach, we can ask ourselves how we can support students, not blame them for their behavior, and nurture their success. Jeff explains the OEA Trauma-Informed course series (free for members and available for undergraduate and graduate credits) and his own trauma-informed work in the classroom detailing specific examples working with teen refugees from conflict-heavy areas of the world. Leonne and Jeff dig into the concepts of holistic and systemic approaches to being trauma-informed and acknowledge the impact of community-level trauma such as poverty, racism, and the Covid pandemic.The power of positive adult relationships in students' lives can't be underestimated: With awareness, creativity, collaboration, and educators' own regulation, we can help build resilience and confidence in students affected by trauma.

According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, an estimated 27 million Americans have thyroid disease, and more than half of those individuals are undiagnosed and unaware that they have a thyroid condition.However, it's important to understand that if more comprehensive thyroid testing was used by doctors and functional reference ranges were used to interpret that testing instead of the overly lax lab reference ranges, a much larger number of people would be classified as having some type of thyroid dysfunction.Most doctors rely almost exclusively on the thyroid stimulating hormone or TSH test to detect thyroid dysfunction, yet TSH is not even technically a marker of thyroid function, it's actually a marker of pituitary function. Even worse, the medical community can't even agree on what the normal reference range is for the TSH test.My other issue with conventional medicine is its refusal to actually look at underlying causes of thyroid dysfunction including but not limited to gut inflammation, chronic stress, adrenal issues, nutrient deficiencies, toxins in our food, air, and water, and chronic infections such as periodontal disease and h. Pylori.The thyroid's primary function is to control the body's metabolism – the rate at which cells perform duties essential to living. It manages how we turn our food into energy by facilitating the processes of energy production in the mitochondria. I want you to think of your thyroid as your body's “engine,” which sets the pace at which the body operates. Too little thyroid hormone can cause the body's systems to slow down, and too much thyroid hormone can cause the body's systems to speed up.In today's episode, I've brought back my friend and pharmacist Jim Paoletti to talk about this amazing gland that does so much for us. In fact, there's not a single cell in the body that doesn't depend on thyroid hormone in some way.Jim Paoletti, B.S. Pharmacy, FAARFM, FIACP is an independent clinical consultant on hormones, nutrition, and wellness. Jim has 40 years of experience with bio-identical hormone therapies in clinical practice, both in retail pharmacy and as a consultant and educator. Jim served previously as Director of Provider Education for ZRT Laboratory, Beaverton, Oregon, and as consultant and Education Director for Professional Compounding Centers of America of Houston, TX.He is a graduate and former faculty member of the Fellowship of Anti-Aging and Functional Medicine. Jim has lectured extensively and internationally on all aspects of compounding and BHRT to medical practitioners and consumers, and has several articles published on BHRT and compounding pharmacy issues. Jim has published the book A Practitioner's Guide to Physiologic Bioidentical Hormone Balance.Listen to the full episode to hear:Why your doctor may be relying on testing that provides an incomplete picture of thyroid functionHow laboratory reference ranges don't reflect optimal functional ranges that end up leaving patients frustrated and without resolutionWhy assessing adrenal function is key to evaluating and treating thyroid issuesWhy synthetic vs natural thyroid hormone replacement is misleadingLearn more about Jim Paoletti, BS Pharmacy, FAARFM, FIACP:A Practitioner's Guide to Physiologic Bioidentical Hormone BalanceLearn more about Sami:Eatfor.lifeBook Your Complimentary ConsultationEat For Life cookbooks for each unique biotypeResources:Overcoming Thyroid Disorders 3rd EditionWhy Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? when My Lab Tests Are Normal: a Revolutionary Breakthrough in Understanding Hashimoto's Disease and Hypothyroidism, Dr. Datis Kharrazian
