Matt var redo att flytta hemifrån. Han var väldigt hemmakär, och ville inte vara ifrån sin familj för mycket. Men han var taggad, han var redo för något nytt. Universitetet hägrade - California State University, 40 mil från hans hemstad. Matt var lugn, ordentlig och lite tillbakadragen. Han var eftertänksam, klok, och inte direkt en person som festade. Så när han berättade för sin mamma Debbie att han tänkte söka in till studentföreningen Chi Tau blev hon förvånad. Men Matt berättade om hur välkomnande medlemmarna i föreningen var mot honom. Han berättade för sin mamma hur han redan innan han ens ansökt om medlemsskap hade känt sig mer än välkommen. Accepterad. Som en i gänget.

In this episode of @The Connected Caroline Show , I interview Peggi Cooney, motivational speaker, social worker, and author of the quit-lit book "This Side of Alcohol: Random thoughts and candid words of pain, hope, humor, love." LINKS: ThisSideOfAlcohol.com Facebook: thissideofalcohol Linkedin: Peggi-Cooney Email: email@example.com Peggi Cooney entered the motivational speaking world through her journey to sobriety and her recently published book, This Side of Alcohol: Random thoughts and candid words of pain, hope, humor, love — and all that is possible in sobriety. This Side of Alcohol is borne out of the cathartic journaling she did during the first two years following her break-up with alcohol. It tells the story of what she did to get and stay sober, allowing her to transform her shame, guilt, and anger into self-compassion, self-discovery, and forgiveness – of herself and others. From self-loathing isolation to a joyous community of support and rediscovered intimacy with her family. From living her life engulfed in cognitive dissonance (teaching about the connection between trauma and addiction while she was drinking every evening) to the pride she feels today in being present and authentic in every aspect of her work and life. This Side of Alcohol is her story of living her sobriety out loud, telling the truth, and being at peace... Peggi is a social work instructor/coach for a local California University. She has a Master's degree from California State University at Chico and spent 16 years as a Child Welfare and Adult Protective Services social worker. Peggi has become a sobriety advocate all over the world. She facilitates a weekly recovery support group and is currently working on the development of a sobriety tool to be released in 2022. Peggi has been married to Paul for 35 years. Together they have five children and 12 grandchildren. They make their homes in West Sacramento and Lake Almanor, California.
Returning to the podcast today are Vickie Brett and Amanda Selogie in a unique collaboration episode that will also air on the Inclusive Education Project (IEP) Podcast. Through my experience as a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in pediatric assessments, parents ask a lot of great questions. In this episode, together with Educational attorneys, Vickie and Amanda, we are addressing some of the most common IEP-related questions in an effort to inform and educate parents. Show Notes: [1:26] - Does my child need a diagnosis to get accommodations at school? [4:49] - What should parents do when they approach the teacher with concerns, but the teacher discourages an assessment? [6:53] - What are SST meetings and their purpose within the school? [10:01] - Does a child need an assessment if there is a diagnosis of just ADHD? [11:23] - If I, as a parent, do not agree with the school's assessment results and believe that something else is going on, what are my options? [13:12] - What will an IEP provide that a 504 Plan will not? [16:10] - What are the pros and cons of requesting an Independent Educational Evaluation (IEE)? [18:04] - If a parent chooses to have a private assessment done and the results show the need for accommodations, modifications, or treatment, what is the next step with their school district? [20:41] - What are parents entitled to if they have a private evaluation done? [24:01] - Why are services not provided at private schools and can private school students still access public school services? [26:57] - How does Child Find work in school districts to ensure they find students in private schools that need services? [28:29] - If the school is recommending support that is not evidence-based, can I push back to ensure that my child gets an evidence-based intervention, and what should that look like? [34:01] - No matter the situation, follow your gut feeling.

Today, my guest is a prolific cinematographer, accomplished photographer, and member of the American Society of Cinematographers, Dean Cundey.Dean rose to fame for extraordinary cinematography in the 1980s and 1990s. His early start was working on the set of Halloween. Dean is credited as director of photography on five Back To The Future films and Jurassic Park.The Halloween slasher franchise consisted of eleven films and was initially released in 1978. The films primarily focus on Michael Myers, who was committed to a sanitarium as a child for the murder of his sister, Judith Myers. Fifteen years later, he escapes to stalk and kill the people of the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois. Michael's killings occur on the holiday of Halloween, on which all of the films primarily take place. The second film, one of which Cundey served as director of photography, was based on Marty McFly, who had only just gotten back from the past when he is once again picked up by Dr. Emmett Brown and sent through time to the future. Marty's job in the future is to pose as his son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. Unfortunately, things get worse when the future changes the present.The three Back To The Future films Dean worked on grossed $388.8, $336, and $243 million globally, becoming all-time hits on budgets of $19, $40, and $40 million.Cundey is cited as being amongst some of the best directors of photography. In addition to his lighting skills, particularly in the famous hallway scene where the hidden face of Michael Myers is slowly revealed by way of a blue light next to the mask, he was among the first cinematographers to make use of a recent invention called the Steadicam, or paraglide.Some other shows and movies he's worked on include, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Tales of the Unexpected, Romancing the Stone, Invitation To Hell, Big Trouble in Little China, etc.Who Framed Roger Rabbit; A toon-hating detective is a cartoon rabbit's only hoping to prove his innocence when he is accused of murder. Basically, 'Toon star Roger is worried that his wife Jessica is playing pattycake with someone else, so the studio hires detective Eddie Valiant to snoop on her. But the stakes are quickly raised when Marvin Acme is found dead, and Roger is the prime suspect. Groundbreaking interaction between the live and animated characters, and lots of references to classic animation.Dean grew up an avid reader of the American Cinematographer magazines he would buy after school from a local camera shop close by. That was how his inspiration to pursue filmmaking came about. He shifted his focus to theater history while still taking some architectural design classes at California State University before he ultimately enrolled at the University of California Los Angeles film school.In 1993 Jurassic Park, Dean made a minor appearance as a boat crew member (Mate) while also staffed as director of photography. The film follows a pragmatic paleontologist visiting an almost complete theme park tasked with protecting a couple of kids after a power failure causes the park's cloned dinosaurs to run loose. Huge advancements in scientific technology have enabled a mogul to create an island full of living dinosaurs. A park employee attempts to steal dinosaur embryos, critical security systems are shut down, and it now becomes a race for survival with dinosaurs roaming freely over the island.Cundey holds over one hundred and fifty cinematography & photography credits for movies, television, and short films. That is no small feat in this business. The man has stayed busy and booked since graduation from film school. That kind of consistency in Hollywood is only doable by having extreme persistence and excellence.One of the many things he did to stay prepared and on top of his craft was investing into building himself a ‘super van' or one couple call it a cinematographer's heaven that contained every equipment (cameras, editings tools, etc.) required to help him get work get and do work easily. We talk more about this in our chat.Enjoy my conversation with Dean Cundey.

Escaping Slavery: A Documentary History of Native American Runaways in British North America (Lexington Books, 2022) captures the lives of numerous individuals who refused to sacrifice their humanity in the face of the violent, changing landscapes of early America.

Retire? My guest today has a phrase that better captures this phase of life than the word retirement: The Vintage Years. So how are you planning for your vintage years? Dr. Francine Toder joins us to discuss how to do so with your brain in mind. And that means including novelty, complexity and problem-solving into your day-to-day life. Taking up an artistic pursuit, even without any prior experience is one way to bring those elements into your vintage years. Dr. Toder joins us us from the San Francisco Bay area. _________________________ Design Your Retirement Be intentional about your next phase. Invest in your future with my small group coaching program. Two new groups starting in January 2023 - Limited to 10 participants More info and registration here _________________________ Bio Francine Toder, Ph.D. is an emeritus faculty member of California State University, Sacramento and is a clinical psychologist retired from private practice. She is also the author of The Vintage Years: Finding your Inner Artist (Writer, Musician, Visual Artist) After Sixty.Her most recent book is Inward Traveler: 51 Ways to Explore the World Mindfully.

And the way it does that is through novelty, complexity and problem solving. So let's say you play golf and you like to play golf and you've been playing golf for 40 years. Well, I'd say either you take up another sport or you learn to hold a club in your opposite hand, which is almost impossible and very counterintuitive, and most people would not like it. But that has the benefits of what I call novelty and problem solving. It would be the same way if you were a knitter, I'd say take up a different craft or knit something totally different or in a different way. So you don't have to change hobbies, you just have to change the way you do it. Or find a new hobby. Even if you didn't know what you wanted, you could go back to something you did as a child." On Wisdom and the Richest Stage of Life "This is the richest stage in life. For one thing, I am a psychologist, so I look at the world through psychologist eyes. When you get to this stage of life, your mental health is probably better than it's ever been. And partly, and this may surprise some people, it's because the drop off in certain hormones, estrogen and testosterone and some other ones, that pull for other kinds of activities. And when those are gone, there is more room for taking up something new. And besides that, at this point, we have wisdom. I'll give you an example. Kids have little bookcases full of half a dozen books, and by the time they're out of school, you've got a big bookcase, and by the time you're 60, you've got a huge bookcase. Well, it's the same way in your brain. You have a huge amount of storage in your brain, and excellent problem solving skills that young people don't even have. Those two things together make this the richest stage in life." On Staying Sharp "The most important thing is exercise. And while that isn't an art form, it certainly can be added to an art form.
A few years ago, we were invited by some good friends to see a Christmas concert their kids were participating in. We were happy to be invited, and of course, wanted to support our friends and their kids! So we headed to Salt Lake City expecting a fun evening.But when we walked into Abravanel Hall, we knew something was going on that we didn't understand. The place was buzzing — it was packed full of people, with a tangible excitement in the air. We took our seats, and when the lights went down, nearly 1000 musicians flooded the stage and filled the balconies around us. When the music began, we were hit with a wall of sound unlike anything we'd ever heard. The quality of instrumentation, singing, and arrangement was truly incredible — by the time the concert was over, it felt like every person in attendance had been profoundly moved.That was our first introduction to Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, known as MCO, founded in 2007 by Brett and Brandon Stewart — and now home to over 4,000 musicians in five different chapters. Brett and Brandon are brothers, both with incredible musical resumes. Brett received a doctorate degree in choral conducting with cognate studies in composition from the University of Cincinnati College–Conservatory of Music, a master's degree in choral conducting from California State University, Long Beach, and a bachelor's degree in piano performance from BYU. All in all, he's been teaching music for nearly three decades, and is an accomplished conductor, composer, pianist, and vocalist. Brandon received a bachelor's degree from BYU before going on to receive a Master's Degree from Juilliard, and being invited to complete a doctorate program and teach at Juilliard — before choosing to instead join his brother Brett and found MCO. In addition to his talents as a conductor, composer, and vocalist, Brandon has been second-prize winner of the Juilliard Concerto Competition and the first prize winner of the MTNA national collegiate piano competition.Brett and Brandon tell the founding story in the episode itself, but here we'll just say that these two have felt guided each step of this journey over the last fifteen years, including in some difficult moments that have turned into remarkable blessings for the choir and for audiences around the world.We're releasing this episode this week because over the next few weeks, MCO will be conducting its Christmas Concert series, with concerts in Utah, Arizona, California, Texas, and Idaho. You can still find tickets to the concerts and we can promise that you won't be disappointed. To get those tickets, head to millennial.org. You can also find a book about the MCO story, called Divine Orchestration, written by our friend Greg Trimble and available on Amazon.
Writer Brooke Prado reads her macabre, symbolically rich but never quite implausible modern parable, "The Hollow Book," developed this fall in an upper-division fiction workshop at California State University, Long Beach, then talks with Alan Rifkin about the perils of reading in the dark.

Back in 2011, JGI-supported researchers published a paper in the journal Science. They'd used metagenomics to sift for microbial genes encoding carbohydrate-chomping enzymes in cow rumen — and found 27,000 candidates. The data from that study is now used across California State University campuses for biotechnology education as part of a course-based undergraduate resource experience. Hear from CSU San Marcos Professor Matt Escobar and UC Davis Associate Professor Matthias Hess, also the chair of the JGI User Executive Committee, on how that study went from the lab to the classroom.

It's one of the weirder things Jordan Klepper has heard at Trump rallies: Democrats are drinking the blood of children to get their daily adrenochrome fix. What is adrenochrome, and how did Hillary Clinton get involved? Jordan sits down with Matt Gertz, Senior Fellow for Media Matters for America and Elise Wang, an assistant professor at California State University, Fullerton. Together, they unravel this conspiracy theory that begins in the Middle Ages, pops up in the 2016 election, and makes its way to the non-existent basement of a Washington D.C. pizza shop.

Check the website here: http://enlites.com/ Dr. Eric Schniter is a Lecturer in Anthropology at California State University, Fullerton, and a Visiting Research Associate at the Economic Science Institute at Chapman University. He has been examining the development of skill, knowledge and material production across the lifespan. He is also interested in how emotions calibrate personal and interpersonal behaviors, contributing to relationship maintenance and well-being. In this episode, we talk about skill and knowledge acquisition, and trust-based interactions. We start by talking about the acquisition of skill, knowledge, and material production across the lifespan in foraging societies. We also discuss ethnobiological knowledge, sex differences in knowledge acquisition and specialization, and storytelling skills. We then get into how human relationships are maintained, with a focus on trust. We discuss how promises, apologies, and confessions build and rebuild trust. We talk about dishonesty and mistrust, and gender stereotypes associated with them. We talk about trust games, and what we can learn from them. Finally, we discuss the role that risk plays in the evolution of human exchange. -- A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY PATRONS/SUPPORTERS: KARIN LIETZCKE, ANN BLANCHETTE, PER HELGE LARSEN, LAU GUERREIRO, JERRY MULLER, HANS FREDRIK SUNDE, BERNARDO SEIXAS, HERBERT GINTIS, RUTGER VOS, RICARDO VLADIMIRO, CRAIG HEALY, OLAF ALEX, PHILIP KURIAN, JONATHAN VISSER, JAKOB KLINKBY, ADAM KESSEL, MATTHEW WHITINGBIRD, ARNAUD WOLFF, TIM HOLLOSY, HENRIK AHLENIUS, JOHN CONNORS, PAULINA BARREN, FILIP FORS CONNOLLY, DAN DEMETRIOU, ROBERT WINDHAGER, RUI INACIO, ARTHUR KOH, ZOOP, MARCO NEVES, COLIN HOLBROOK, SUSAN PINKER, PABLO SANTURBANO, SIMON COLUMBUS, PHIL KAVANAGH, JORGE ESPINHA, CORY CLARK, MARK BLYTH, ROBERTO INGUANZO, MIKKEL STORMYR, ERIC NEURMANN, SAMUEL ANDREEFF, FRANCIS FORDE, TIAGO NUNES, BERNARD HUGUENEY, ALEXANDER DANNBAUER, FERGAL CUSSEN, YEVHEN BODRENKO, HAL HERZOG, NUNO MACHADO, DON ROSS, JONATHAN LEIBRANT, JOÃO LINHARES, OZLEM BULUT, NATHAN NGUYEN, STANTON T, SAMUEL CORREA, ERIK HAINES, MARK SMITH, J.W., JOÃO EIRA, TOM HUMMEL, SARDUS FRANCE, DAVID SLOAN WILSON, YACILA DEZA-ARAUJO, IDAN SOLON, ROMAIN ROCH, DMITRY GRIGORYEV, TOM ROTH, DIEGO LONDOÑO CORREA, YANICK PUNTER, ADANER USMANI, CHARLOTTE BLEASE, NICOLE BARBARO, ADAM HUNT, PAWEL OSTASZEWSKI, AL ORTIZ, NELLEKE BAK, KATHRINE AND PATRICK TOBIN, GUY MADISON, GARY G HELLMANN, SAIMA AFZAL, ADRIAN JAEGGI, NICK GOLDEN, PAULO TOLENTINO, JOÃO BARBOSA, JULIAN PRICE, EDWARD HALL, HEDIN BRØNNER, DOUGLAS P.
