We all have goals and things we would love to achieve before we die. But have you thought about preparing your spouse or family for the inevitable? Have you secured their future? As we all know, death doesn't discriminate by age or any other factor. It can come when we least expect it. You may have prepared your last will, but it's not the only thing you must do before you die. While your estate may not be as large as others, it's just as important to have a plan in place in the event of your death. With some preparation, you can put your mind at ease now and save your loved ones a lot of trouble later.

Here's a genius move. Immerse yourself in a few more interests and watch yourself grow intellectually. That's the advice from biographer Walter Isaacson. And he should know as he's often considered the genius biographer. Isaacson is a bestselling author. He's written biographies about people including Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs and Jennifer Doudna. He's a former editor of Time Magazine and served as the CEO of the Aspen Institute in addition to teaching at Tulane University. His latest book may be his most controversial due to his subject, Elon Musk. Isaacson spent two years with Musk with what he describes as unfiltered total access. He thought the book would primarily focus on electric cars and space travel. Then came the Twitter sale in the middle of his writing project. Now, Isaacson's Elon Musk is out and he's facing criticism from some in the tech world for taking hit too easy on a controversial leader. Isaacson says his job is to be a storyteller and it's a reader's job to reach conclusions on his subjects. On this Dying to Ask: The unusual deal Walter Isaacson struck with musk before writing the book How Isaacson found out Musk had accepted his offer to do the book How the Twitter sale impacted his research and book Why broadening your interests helps you think bigger
Since the start of the Israel-Hamas war, the black and white scarf known as the Kufiyah has been highly visible at pro-Palestinian protests. Australian politicians Mehreen Faruqi and Lidia Thorpe have worn it in parliament and it's even been draped over a Benjamin Franklin statue in Washington. So what is this scarf?
İsrail-Hamas savaşının başlangıcından bu yana, Arapça'da Kufiyah, Türkçe'de bizlerin ‘Poşu' ya da bazı yerlerde ‘Kefiye Şal' olarak bildiği siyah beyaz eşarp, Filistin yanlısı protestolarda oldukça görünür hale geldi. Avustralyalı politikacılar Mehreen Faruqi ve Lidia Thorpe bu poşuyu Parlamento'da giydiler ve hatta Washington'daki Benjamin Franklin heykelinin üzerine bile örtüldü. Peki nedir bu poşu?
The Dudes dive into the non-fiction book, Hope of the Wicked: The Master Plan to Rule the World by author Ted Flynn. This book is 550 pages of information about the multi-century development of the politically charged and often cited New World Order. There is a spiritual battle going on throughout our world that has been happening since the dawn of time and is culminating in our global political theater. In Chapter 7, The Dudes explore the historic, somewhat dark roots of Freemasonry in America. The subject of Freemasonry spreads its wings wide and includes Albert Pike, the 33rd Degree and the Phoenix, the Great Seal of the United States of America, the Pyramid and other symbolism in our Great Seal.

Adrienna Bailon's comment about her being a D-list celebrity gives some perspective to Lindsie and Kail on their own status. A conversation about outgrowing friendships and evolving through the years reminds both Lindsie and Kail about the unhinged and borderline illegal things their parents said to them to keep them in line. Kail recounts the time she called CPS on her mom.

Hosting any holiday can be stressful! We've hosted hundreds of gatherings over the years and have compiled our tried and true Thanksgiving game plan to help minimize stress and maximize success! If you prefer video, watch the full episode 24 YouTube video version. Benjamin Franklin once said "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail" and this couldn't be more true when it comes to hosting a holiday. Having a great Thanksgiving game plan is the key to minimizing stress leading up to and on Thanksgiving day! Note: This plan applies to food only! We can't do anything to mitigate the stress from combative family members! Haha Our Thanksgiving Game Plan On the day this episode airs, Thanksgiving will be 10 days away which is plenty of time to get your plan together! Consider following this timeline to help make decisions, delegate responsibilities, and tackle pain points. 7-10 days before Decide on your menu. Will you use fresh or frozen turkey? Will you use a turkey breast instead of a whole bird, or perhaps another meat, such as spiral ham? Select 5-7 side dishes (listen to our Sides That Wow Podcast Episode 23) Touch base with your guests. Don't be afraid to assign specific things and set rules. For example, it's perfectly fine to request a specific dessert or appetizer. If you have limited space in your refrigerator or kitchen, ask your guests to be mindful of that. Ask that they bring food that doesn't require any prep (other than reheating) or refrigeration. Shop for non-perishables, napkins, coffee, etc. Make lasagna and freeze (or other dishes that freeze well). Saturday before Depending on its size, thaw the turkey, if using frozen. The USDA recommends thawing turkey in the refrigerator allowing 1 day for every 4-5 pounds. Once thawed, the raw turkey will be safe for another 2 days in the refrigerator. Sunday - Monday Go shopping. Shop for groceries, beer, wine, and allow yourself time. This time of year many ingredients sell out quickly so account for the fact you may need to shop at more than 1 grocery store. Tuesday Start the desserts. If making pumpkin pie, apple pie, or apple crostata, tiramisu, etc. make these today. Brine the turkey (we recommend a dry brine). Wednesday Prepare most of your sides and appetizers. Sides and apps that are great to make ahead of time include cranberry sauce, roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots, sweet potato casserole, baked artichoke hearts, stuffed mushrooms, cinnamon roasted butternut squash, and sausage stuffing. Set the table. Prepare the Thanksgiving Sangria. Dice the apples and pears and allow all ingredients (minus the club soda) to marry together in the refrigerator overnight. Thaw the lasagna (if using). Prep any crudite, or dips, such as cannellini bean dip, etc. Thanksgiving Thursday! In the morning. Prepare the dough for garlic butter dinner rolls and allow to sit. Cook the turkey. Prep the potatoes for mashed potatoes. Empty the dishwasher to prepare for later. Set up coolers with ice. As guests arrive. Add the club soda to the sangria. Put out appetizers. Before dinner. Finish the mashed potatoes. Make the giblet gravy or easy turkey gravy. Carve the turkey. Bake dinner rolls. Heat up food in oven or over sternos. After dinner and dessert. If they offer, let your guests help with cleanup. Prep coffee, tea, and put out desserts, after-dinner drinks, etc. To make things even easier on you, consider buying (or delegating to a guest) a box of coffee from a local coffee shop. Dunkin Donuts' Box o'Joe has come in handy for us on many occasions!

Before Europeans landed in North America, five Indigenous nations around what would become New York State came together to form the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. When the Europeans arrived, the French called them the Iroquois Confederacy, and the English called them the League of Five Nations. Those Five Nations were the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas, and Senecas; the Tuscaroras joined the Confederacy in 1722. Some founding father of the United States, including George Washington and Benjamin Franklin admired the Haudenosaunee and incorporated their ideas into the U.S. Constitution. Despite that admiration, though, the United States government and the state government of New York did not always treat the Haudenosaunee with respect, and Haudenosaunee leaders had to navigate a difficult terrain in maintaining their sovereignty. Today we're going to look at the relationship between the Haudenosaunee and the United States through the stories of four individuals: Red Jacket, Ely S. Parker, Harriet Maxwell Converse, and Arthur C. Parker. Joining me in this episode is Dr. John C. Winters, Assistant Professor of History at the University of Southern Mississippi and author of The Amazing Iroquois and the Invention of the Empire State.

The Key Master: When Seasons Collide by Jonathan R. BacherThe blending of fairy-tale fiction and history is not unique in any way as time travel stories have been told many times and in a variety of ways. It is the fascination of living within another realm that draws both the reader and writer into the mystical possibilities of fantasy. That seductive potential of transformation into another time, pulling one to follow a path that will lead into uncharted territories and a collision between their past and that of others before them. In this sense, each story carries with it its own relevance just as one's remembrance of the past, and fear of the future, is viewed in specific individual terms that are different for all of us.Based upon the hatred that existed between the English and both the Dutch and Swedish settlers of the new Americas, this story takes place in New Castle, Delaware, which played a pivotal but rather unknown role in our nation's history as the original center of colonial government prior to William Penn establishing Philadelphia as such. Ironically, it was in New Castle where William Penn first touched the shores of the nation that would become the United States of America. As a thriving port enterprise, New Castle served as the residence and meeting place for many who were involved with both the striving for independence and, for some, the ultimate signing of the Declaration of Independence. Among them were Benjamin Franklin, John Dickenson, George Read, and Thomas McKean.When a man is given a special gift that will allow for him to travel through time, he awakens in the year 1773 in his hometown of New Castle, Delaware. Through the course of routine circumstance, he finds himself accepted by some yet deceived by others. Remembering his past, which is really his future, he longs for a return to those associated with his life in the year 1986. The story becomes complicated when he learns that his close friend's family is descendant of a plot and murder that took place in 1777. This would be a plot that would question the very existence of the family name and all that they had acquired.In the end, he must now make a choice. Perhaps the most difficult choice of his many life cycles. Does he return to be with his wife and maintain a tarnished relationship? Or does he remain in a period where potential for true love awaits him?https://www.amazon.com/Key-Master-When-Seasons-Collide-ebook/dp/B0BRNTP2GB/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=The+Key+Master%3A+When+Seasons+Collide&qid=1698282079&s=books&sr=1-1http://www.KingPagesPress.com http://www.bluefunkbroadcasting.com/root/twia/11923kpp1a.mp3
For the longest time, when you thought about the most powerful person in the world, the person who probably came to mind was the president of the United States, the leader of the free world. But in 2023, the person who comes to mind for most people these days isn't an elected official at all. Instead, a lot of people picture a 52-year-old civilian who, through his own determination, ambition, and sheer will, has amassed an enormous amount of wealth—more than any other person on this planet—and also an enormous amount of influence over many of the most important industries in the world, especially as we look to the future. Elon Musk's biography is difficult to summarize, but that's exactly what our guest today, Walter Isaacson, has spent the past two and a half years doing: outlining Elon Musk's life to the tune of about 700 pages, in a new book simply titled Elon Musk. Isaacson is an award-winning biographer of luminaries including Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, and Jennifer Doudna. But this recent undertaking has no doubt been his most complicated one to date. That's because the man he wrote about has a story that's very much still unfolding. In fact, when Walter Isaacson started writing the book, Musk hadn't even purchased Twitter yet. One of the questions that underlies the entire biography is this: What does it mean for a single man to have so much singular power? And though Walter doesn't answer the question explicitly, we've all had a glimpse into exactly what it means for the world during this past month. Take, for example, how when Israel briefly cut off the internet inside of Gaza as part of their war strategy to eliminate Hamas, Elon announced that he was going to provide it himself through his company, Starlink. After widespread criticism, he posted an exploding head emoji. Then, when a commenter suggested that he must have felt pressure to provide the coverage, Elon simply responded, “yeah,” with a frowny face. Musk apparently then met with the head of Shin Bet, Israel's internal security service, and announced that he would, “double check with Israeli and U.S. security officials before enabling any connections.” The point, as my friend and writer Jacob Siegel put it, is that “non-state kingmakers are redefining the scope of warfare through direct intervention.” Of course, there's also Elon's newfound power over the information that all of us consume on X, Twitter's new brand. It's hard to imagine under Twitter's previous regime that we would have had access to the raw, brutally violent footage from Hamas's October 7 massacre. Elon's version of Twitter, which is less censorious than the previous guard, has allowed millions of people across the globe to see—with their own eyes—exactly what Hamas did. And yet, with those loosened rules, there's also so much genuine disinformation spread at a pace like never before. Scores of people, including elected officials like Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, are posting horrifying photos and videos of crying children from Gaza, when in reality they are photos and videos from Syria in 2013. It has never been clearer that one man wields an enormous amount of influence over everything from social media to warfare. And the question is, should he? That's the theme of today's conversation.

“All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.” United States Constitution, Article I, Section 7 Review the origins and debate over Article I, Section 7 of the United States Constitution, which provides that any bill raising revenue must originate in the House of Representatives. These bills were often referred to as “money bills” and this clause today is often referred to as the “Origination Clause.” This provision addresses the authority of the federal government to tax, as well as to raise revenues and funds from other sources. Article I, Section 7 ensures that taxation and similar means of raising money must first be proposed by the House of Representatives — which is composed of the most immediate representatives of the People. The Origination Clause preserves the keystone of “no taxation without representation.” The Senate has the authority to amend or concur in amendments to such bills, just like any other bill. This ensures the wisdom and experience of the Senate can influence these important matters, without allowing them to cower or coerce the House, and prevents an aristocracy from taking hold.

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of November 13 and November 20, 2023. MUSIC – ~28 sec – Lyrics: “What you gonna do when the river runs dry, when there's no more water in your well? You won't know when to give it that one last try, you won't be warned before the final bell.” That's part of “River Runs Dry,” by Blacksburg, Va., musician Kat Mills. The song, in which water sources are metaphors for the songwriter's inspiration, opens a Thanksgiving-season episode featuring expressions of gratitude for literal water sources not running dry. Here are three such expressions, by people from North America, Vietnam, and Kenya. 1. The Haudenosaunee people, an alliance of six Native American tribes that was formerly known as the Iroquois Confederacy, has a traditional “Thanksgiving Address of Greetings to the Natural World.” The address includes greetings to 17 aspects of the world, such as people, plants and animals, the moon and stars, winds and thunder, and the creator. Here's the greeting to The Waters: “We give thanks to all the waters of the world for quenching our thirst and providing us with strength. Water is life. We know its power in many forms- waterfalls and rain, mists and streams, rivers and oceans. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to the spirit of Water. Now our minds are one.” 2. Vietnamese spritutal leader Thich Nhat Hanh has written many “gathas,” that is, short reflections or meditations, on daily activities. Here is his gatha for “Turning on the Water.” “Water comes from high mountain sources. Water runs deep in the Earth. Miraculously, water comes to us and sustains all life. My gratitude is filled to the brim.” And 3. About 10 years ago, a group of Kenyan schoolgirls wrote a poem in gratitude for a newly drilled well in their community. Here's that poem. Dear water, It was hard to get to you. Waking up at dawn Buckets on our heads Donkeys loaded with jerrycans. Miles we walked In the scorching heat To look for you. Dear water, At last you came. Sweet water Our backs are rested The miles are no more Diseases are gone. For you are closer to us. Dear water, You are such a blessing. One can find countless other expressions of awareness of and gratitude for water's many vital purposes in writings by poets, politicians, professors, prophets, pundits, and plenty of others. For one last, short reading, we return to one of the water metaphors in our opening music, and quote a Benjamin Franklin comment that applies not only to water but also to anything one has and can lose: “When the well's dry, we know the worth of water.” Thanks to people everywhere who know and speak about the worth of water. Thanks also to Kat Mills for permission to use this episode's music, and—with hope that this won't be the case for you or anyone—we close with about 30 more seconds of “River Runs Dry.” Happy Thanksgiving!MUSIC - ~30 sec – Lyrics: “What you gonna do when the river runs dry?

Benjamin Franklin: “Search others for their virtues, thy self for thy vices”- Poor Richards Almanac The best way to maximize longevity in 2023 is not a drug, supplement, or other high tech therapeutic; its Lifestyle medicine. Wonder Medicine specializes in the translation of longevity technologies into clinical practice. This includes things like rapamycin, exosomes, and metformin. But we would be misguiding you if we did not focus, first and foremost, on lifestyle. What is Lifestyle Medicine?Per the American College of Preventative Medicine: Lifestyle medicine is a medical approach that uses evidence-based behavioral interventions to prevent, treat and manage chronic disease. I would take this a step further even. For me, Lifestyle includes: 1. Thoughts2. Behaviors3. Environment4. The People Around Us With environment being particularly relevant and underappreciated in most medical settings. These 4 things drive both health and un-health. By optimizing these four things, a person can greatly extend both lifespan and health span. Focusing on behaviors alone, will not be enough. This may be why conventional medicine downplays lifestyle changes. If you only address behaviors, changes don't happen, and as such, the strategy fails. But this is a shame because lifestyle changes are the only definitively proven way to extend the length of human life in 2023. From epidemiological studies, it appears that people who live a healthy lifestyle can add approximately twelve years to their life (range: 5-15 years). Death at 88 instead of 76 years, most often accompanied by contraction of morbidity.

There is a ton of research that says waking up early is good for your health. In fact, a lot of the research says that if you can wake up and get the morning sunlight exposure it will help you regulate your sleep-wake cycle. This helps your body get in a rhythm of healthy sleep patterns. This morning sunlight has been proven to strengthen your immune system, reduce stress and support your mental health.I'm sure you have heard that quote from Benjamin Franklin that says, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise?” So the new research is just a confirmation of what people have known for years.I too am a firm believer in being a morning person. But I haven't always been. In fact, it was a years-long journey to become one myself but it has benefited my life in many ways. So this week I am sharing 3 things that I did to become a morning person.

People get _________ but enjoy it _________. Proverbs 14:30 A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones. 3 Areas of Discontentment: MATERIAL discontentment RELATIONAL discontentment. SITUATIONAL discontentment. We are discontent because we expect ______________ to fill a void only ______________ can fill. James 3:14-16 But if you are bitterly jealous and there is selfish ambition in your heart, don't cover up the truth with boasting and lying. 15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God's kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind. Philippians 4:11-13 Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 12 I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 13 For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Until Christ is all you ______________ you won't realize that Christ is all you ______________. "Contentment makes poor men rich; discontentment makes rich men poor." - Benjamin Franklin. Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." Discontentment is saying that things are more ______________ than God Psalm 23:1 A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I have all that I need. 1 Timothy 6:6-9 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can't take anything with us when we leave it. 8 So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. 9 But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. The secret of contentment is being ___________________ with Christ.

“Imitate Jesus and Socrates.” - Benjamin Franklin Are you as struck by Franklin's recommendation as I am? Why both? If you're going to include Jesus on any list, there really isn't any need to include anyone else. It was curious to me what Franklin might have been thinking that would lead him to include these two people specifically, and only these two people. Perhaps it was this prompting from a personal friend of Franklin's: "My list of virtues continued at first but twelve; but a Quaker friend having kindly informed me that I was generally thought proud, that my pride showed itself frequently in conversation, that I was not content with being in the right when discussing any point, but was overbearing and rather insolent, of which he convinced me by mentioning several instances, I determined endeavoring to cure myself, if I could, of this vice or folly among the rest, and I added Humility to my list, giving an extensive meaning to the word." Humility is "a modest or low view of one's own importance." It may well be that you are important, or the best, but humility moderates a balanced view of how you should view yourself. God opposes the proud just as all others are repulsed by them. Read the transcript for Benjamin Franklin's 13 Virtues - Humility Sign up for the Wisdom In All Things weekly email

Involve me and I'll learn. — Benjamin Franklin Quotable Quotes "Skills training can give you time and space to get to the core problem. So sometimes improving your skills can help mask a problem or make a problem less severe, but it usually never addresses the core problem." "Sales is often treated as a result rather than the complex set of human interactions it is." "Leadership is about a delicate balance, about holding people accountable, but letting them make mistakes." "There is no ground truth." "Patience is the truest form of trust and confidence." "You want to work less and achieve more. That comes from conscious competence." “You need to experience the loss of balance or the ability to make your own balance, to understand balance.” "Conscious competence is where the real value is that allows you to work less and achieve more." "Curiosity unlocks everything else. Without curiosity, you can't get any further." "Clarity is an outcome." "There is no better way to clarify your thinking than to put it in writing."

GDP Script/ Top Stories for Nov 1st Publish Date: Oct 31st Hennsler: 15 From the Henssler Financial Studio Welcome to the Gwinnett Daily Post Podcast. Today is Wednesday, November 1st and Happy 65th Birthday to Lyle Lovett. I'm Bruce Jenkins and here are your top stories presented by Peggy Slappy Properties. Man laid to rest 80 years after his death in World War II It's time to say goodbye to changing clocks twice a year Oregon cites equity in suspending graduation requirement Plus, my conversation with Lawrenceville event coordinator Milo Sather. All of this and more is coming up on the Gwinnett Daily Post podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen daily and subscribe! Break 1: Peggy Slappy STORY 1: Man laid to rest 80 years after his death in World War II First Lt. Edward T. McGuire, a World War II pilot who died in 1943 when his B-24 Liberator bomber crashed near Ploiesti, Romania, during Operation Tidal Wave, was honored with a military funeral 80 years after his death. The recovery of his remains in 2017 marked the beginning of a multiyear identification process. Operation Tidal Wave aimed to take out German oil refineries in Romania but was fraught with errors, including flying low over the targets. McGuire's great-nephew, Mike McAuliffe, said the ceremony brought closure to the family, and the procession was attended by community members and veterans. STORY 2: Commentary: It's time to say goodbye to changing clocks twice a year On November 5th at 2 a.m. local time, daylight saving time ends in the United States, and clocks are set back an hour. This practice, involving biannual clock changes, has a long history dating back to Benjamin Franklin. However, there's increasing support to end it permanently. Various factors, including the digital revolution and flexible work schedules, have made clock changes obsolete. In 2021, the Senate passed the Sunshine Protection Act, making daylight saving time permanent, but the House didn't follow suit. Senator Marco Rubio reintroduced the bill this year, and a 30-minute permanent shift between standard time and daylight saving time is a potential compromise that could find bipartisan support. The goal is to eliminate the need for biannual time changes. STORY 3: Oregon cites equity in suspending graduation requirement The Oregon Board of Education unanimously voted to extend a pause on graduation requirements, including basic reading, writing, and math tests for high school students, which were previously halted during the pandemic. This move is criticized for lowering standards and creating lower expectations, particularly for minority students who are disproportionately affected. Critics argue that disparities in student performance on these tests are seen as proof of racial bias, though other factors, such as poverty rates, family structure, and school quality, also play a significant role. This decision is viewed as a misguided attempt to address educational disparities, with the ultimate consequence of setting up struggling students, especially African American and Hispanic students, for failure.

We'll be right back Break 2: MOG – TOM WAGES – SOLID WASTES STORY 4: Scientists discover key to slowing aging Hungarian scientists have made significant strides in understanding the aging process. They discovered that 'transposable elements' (TEs) in DNA can destabilize the genetic code and cause aging. However, the researchers also identified a specific process called the 'Piwi-piRNA pathway' that controls these TEs. When they enhanced this pathway in experiments with a worm species, the worms showed a lifespan increase of up to 30 percent. By controlling the activity of TEs and understanding epigenetic changes in aging, this research may lead to potential methods for extending human lifespans and determining biological age from DNA. This groundbreaking study was published in the journal Nature Communications. STORY 5: Americans born in 2019 will spend nearly 40 years taking prescription drugs: study New research indicates that Americans born in 2019 will spend a significant portion of their lives taking prescription drugs, surpassing the time spent married or in education. For males born in 2019, it's projected to be 48% (approximately 37 years), while for females, it's expected to be 60% (about 47.5 years), with many women starting prescription drug use at age 15. The study, using data from nationally representative surveys, emphasizes the central role prescription drugs play in Americans' lives. Rates of polypharmacy (taking five or more medications) have also risen, with healthcare costs associated with prescription drugs steadily increasing. We'll be back in a moment Break 3: ESOG – INGLES 1 – JACKSON EMC STORY 6: Milo Sather And now here is my conversation with Lawrenceville event coordinator Milo Sather STORY 7: Milo Sather We'll have final thoughts after this.

SHOW NOTES: On this show…we are checking the emotional chart circling the face that closely describes how we're feeling as we attempt to solve the conundrum about dissatisfaction; trend or choice? What do you think? Are you choosing to be dissatisfied, purposely turning your smile upside down, and avoiding any joy as you struggle to remain unhappy? Maybe you don't know what I'm talking about and that's great! It means you're in the shrinking percentage of people who are actually satisfied with their life, personal, and professional. But if not, let's get to the root of it. What gives? Benjamin Franklin said, “Let thy discontents be thy secrets; if the world knows them 'twill despise thee and increase them.” I tend to agree. Discontentment can spread like a nasty infection. Someone who is mildly discontented needs little push over the edge to full-on dissatisfaction. And what does that get you? In my personal opinion, it makes a very large hole that is harder if not impossible, to crawl out of. Ever heard misery loves company? If the bandwagon passes by…let it pass instead of flagging it down. First and foremost, happiness and satisfaction are conscious choices. Will there always be trials and tribulations? Of course, but “What lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson Whether you're curious or frustrated by the situation that surrounds us, let's take some time to figure some things out. Christopher Ingraham proclaims Americans are getting more miserable, and there's data to prove it found at the washingtonpost.com Kristen Bialik informs that Americans are unhappy with family, social, or financial life found at pewresearch.org Nir Eyal answers Why It's So Hard to Ever Feel Satisfied found at psychologytoday.co Matt Walsh explores why Gen Z Is Finding Out That Being An Adult Is Hard found at the dailywire.com CHALLENGE: Feeling satisfied personally or professionally comes from within. Your perception of any situation directly affects your reality. Take time to trace the source of your dissatisfaction and change your situation by adjusting your perception. I Know YOU Can Do It!

Daylight saving time (DST) It's the practice of advancing your clocks by one hour during the spring and summer months, and then turning them back in the autumn and winter. The idea is to make better use of natural daylight and save energy. But some people question if it really works and if there are any advantages to us at all. Daylight saving time was first proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 to conserve candles. But it wasn't implemented in the United States until 1918, during World War I, as a way to save fuel. Since then, DST has been adopted by many countries around the world . It was first introduced in the UK in 1916, during World War I, as a way to save coal. In the UK, DST begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October. But what are the benefits of DST? Does it really save energy? Does changing our clocks affect our sleep and well-being? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here: Why is Disney becoming unpopular?
