Part 1: In his early twenties, Jonathan Feakins goes above and beyond for his job as a West Nile virus mosquito technician Part 2: While working as a coral reef biologist in Panama in 1989, Nancy Knowlton and her young daughter are taken into the custody of the Panamanian military when the U.S. invades. Jonathan Feakins is just some nerd who has tried to spend his life wandering strange places, reading obscure books, doing weird science, petting adorable animals, fighting the good fight, and having wonderful friends. He somehow has a species of earthworm named after him, and once got kicked out of an all-you-can-eat restaurant (for eating all he could eat). He first learned the power of a good story from his grandmother, as she regaled him with tales about her childhood pet crocodile (whose name was Baby), or about the time she (accidentally) cleared out a biker bar with a Swazi bible student named Enoch. You can learn more about his questionable life choices at bookwormcity.com. Nancy Knowlton has been a scientist with the Smithsonian since 1984 and is now a scientist emerita, first in Panama and most recently at the National Museum of Natural History in DC. She's also been a professor at Yale and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where she founded the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation. Her work on coral reefs has taken her literally around the world, and she has spent so much time underwater that she long ago lost count of the hours. She has been a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the author of Citizens of the Sea, and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Ocean Portal website. Despite the glut of bad news these days, you can find her @seacitizens talking about #OceanOptimism and #EarthOptimism. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
As skeptical citizens discuss whether or not to vote for Coriolanus, Menenius tries to persuade him to speak kindly to them. Instead, he mockingly begs for their votes, but still wins enough to be approved by the Tribunes. Brutus and Sicinius, in turn, stoke resentment among the people, urging them to storm the Capitol to block Coriolanus's confirmation before he takes away their freedoms. Enraged, Coriolanus rails against democracy, spurring Brutus and Sicinius to have him arrested for treason and brought to Traitors Rock before an angry mob. Welcome to the premiere episode of the Play On Podcasts' Series Coriolanus.

All of our TKFLASTANIS are very dear to us, but Citizen #1 will have a special place in our hearts. Bobsledder Josh Williamson, winner of the first season of Team USA's "The Next Olympic Hopeful" was our first interviewee, and now he returns, on the cusp of fulfilling his "Next Olympic Hopeful" goals and making it to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. We catch up with Josh and learn how he's approaching this season, what it's like to become a veteran in the sport, and what the bobsled track at Beijing is like (POV video here). Follow Josh on Twitter and Insta In our history moment on Atlanta 1996, Alison dives into maybe the most controversial phrase that came out of Juan Antonio Samaranch's mouth during the Games. Also on tap, we've got news from TKFLASTAN, including updates on Evan Dunfee, Dawn Harper Nelson, Connor Fields and Stephanie Roble. In our Beijing 2022 update, the Olympic Flame is officially lit and has traveled to Beijing, though not without controversy. The Torch Relay, of which there are few details, includes the inspiring slogan "Health, Joy and Energy." Alison is not impressed by Jill's attempts to spruce that up. And we have news from Milan-Cortina 2026, in which we are completely unsurprised to learn of venue changes due to cost containment needs. The Games aren't even for another 4+ years, but maybe it's a good thing that they've figured this out now. Thanks so much for listening, and until next time, keep the flame alive!

It's the season of the witch, Creep Street! This week Maureen and Dylan discuss one of the most frightening and deadly hauntings in American history! In 1817, a unseen force set its sights on the Bell family. Over the next few years this haunting would escalate into a nightmare of violence and unspeakable evil. Was this the wrath of a disturbed spirit, or the conjuration of a witch? The truth may be even more sinister. Citizens of the Milky Way, prepare yourselves for The haunting of the Bell Witch!

We discuss breaking deals and compromises in the historic Build Back Better negotiations in Congress. Will the Democrats be able to bring their two rogue Senators into line, or do their corporate paymasters want to sink reform? Is a smaller version of Build Back Better still worth having? Next, we discuss Wednesday's failed U.S. Senate vote on the Freedom to Vote Act, Senator Manchin's slimmed down version of electoral reform. Does the GOP use of the fillibuster to block even debating the bill mean Democrats can finally do away with the Jim Crow and slavery era relic? Back in the Badger State, Republicans release outrageously gerrymandered maps. Will Governor Evers step up and veto them? A national report ranks Wisconsin the state with the worst Black incarceration, and if things could not get even worse, the Senate GOP passes a pro-child labor bill. We close the show with a look at the GOP's national school board strategy to bully and remove school board members who stand up for public health, and GOP gubernatorial frontrunner Rebecca Kleefisch's role.

We see that in the Biblical Narrative (and still true today) there are only 2 kingdoms: "The World" and the Kingdom of God. All the structures and systems of the world are influenced and run by Satan and the Powers. The Bible speaks of this often in the way it uses the word “kosmos” usually translated as World. It can mean a few things 1) the earth or creation, 2) The people of the earth, or 3) the systems of world (under the enemy). Examples of Kosmos: 1 John 5:19; James 4:4; Matthew 4:8; Mark 8:36; John 15:19; John 18:36; Gal 4:3; Col 2:8; 2 Pet 2:20 Baptism Baptism in the 1st Century was not only an outward sign of an inward faith or simply a religious ritual but it was a political pledge. “The early Church of the first century viewed baptism as their sacramentum to Jesus. Tertullian (160-225 AD) contrasted the Christian sacramentum with the Roman soldier's pledge of loyalty to the emperor and the empire. He makes the case that just as a soldier, upon his oath of allegiance, was inducted into Caesar's army, so a Christ-follower was initiated by the sacrament of baptism into God's Kingdom. Each person vowed faithful (allegiant) service to his ruler and kingdom. Baptism into empire or baptism into Christ's nation was the dividing line. Tertullian condemned any Christian who would be willing to swear the Roman sacramentum, since baptism was the only sacrament a Christian should observe. For the early Church, baptism was abandoning empire and claiming new citizenship in Jesus's nation.” (RivalNations.org) 1 Peter 3:17-22 Babylon In the early church the phrase “Babylon” became the code word for the system of Satan or the kingdom of the world (kosmos). The Way of the Exile We need to view America less like a biblical Israel and more like a biblical Babylon. How do we live as exiles in the midst of empire? -Brian Zahnd Way not to live as Exiles Tribalism Political Parties Violence 7 Mountain Mandate Ways to live as Exiles Jeremiah 29:5-7 1 Peter Daniel Jesus calls us to radical allegiance to His Kingdom alone You cannot serve 2 masters (matt 6:24) Paul tells Timothy that as a soldier of God's kingdom he should not be caught up in civilian affairs. (2 Tim 2:4) James says that friendship with the world is enmity with God (James 4:4) We are called to seek first God's kingdom (matt 6:33) 5 differences between Kingdom and Empire 1. DIFFERENCE OF TRUSTS 2. DIFFERENCE OF AIMS 3. DIFFERENCE OF SCOPES 4. DIFFERENCE OF RESPONSES 5.

This is a fun episode as we welcome our guest Angela Box to the show to share her experience as a former teacher in the Houston Independent School District. She has a viral video going around from her speech and confrontation with the Superintendent at the Houston school board meeting. We talk about how these schools are teaching critical race theory, Marxism, the push to keep children in masks, etc. These school boards don't want the parents involved which is why you absolutely need to be. This is the time for all of us to use our voices and stop the socialist takeover in our country!

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 10-15-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of October 18, 2021. SOUND – ~8 sec This week, those abrupt stops to the sounds of the Roanoke River, Gray Tree Frogs, and a household water faucet set the stage for an episode marking the observance of “Imagine a Day without Water,” to be held this year on October 21. We start with some music designed to help you do such imagining. Have a listen for about 40 seconds. MUSIC - ~42 sec – instrumental You've been listening to “Flow Stopper,” by Torrin Hallett, a graduate student at the Yale School of Music. Besides flowing rivers, calling frogs, and household faucets, almost any aspect of life could be affected by a lack of water, including the biological structures and functions that make life possible. Increasing the awareness of water uses and needs is a goal of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign. According to the event's Web site, the effort is, quote, “a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment,” unquote. The event is part of the “Value of Water Campaign,” focused on water infrastructure needs. These campaigns are coordinated by the US Water Alliance, a non-profit organization made up of people from water utilities, government, business, other non-profits, communities, and research establishments. Worldwide, billions of people don't have to imagine lacking good water. According to the United Nations, as of 2019 over 2 billion people lacked access to safely managed drinking water, and over 4 billion people lacked access to safely managed sanitation. In the United States, the American Society of Civil Engineers' water infrastructure “Report Card” for 2021 estimated over $1 trillion needed through 2029 for drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater, with $434 billion of that not yet funded. And in Virginia, the Department of Environmental Quality's 2020 “Water Resources Report” identified several water challenges, including maintaining groundwater availability over the next 50 years; coordinating water planning among localities; gauging the impact of unpermitted water withdrawals; understanding stream water quality and ecology; and investing in water-resources personnel, science, and education. Water is fundamental for energy, commerce, industry, agriculture, aquatic and terrestrial life, and human biology. Imagining a day without water—and learning about where water's lacking—can help us envision and work toward well-watered future days. Thanks to Torrin Hallett for composing this week's music for Virginia Water Radio, and we close with another listen to the last 10 seconds of “Flow Stopper.” MUSIC - 10 sec – instrumental SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment. For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624. Thanks to Ben Cosgrove for his version of “Shenandoah” to open and close the show. In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

George Allen, founder of Citizens for Tax Fairness, joins Kim in studio to discuss taxes, specifically the vote NO on the Lone Tree city retail tax increase of 55%. Kim encourages listeners to visit The Kim Monson Show website to view We the People Voter's Guide. While you are there, Brad Beck has a new op-ed, Help Wanted, along with Patti Kurgan's, Proposition 119: Cronyism's LEAP “For the Children.” Vote No on Prop 119. Prop 119 is a new retail marijuana tax that establishes an unaccountable and unelected board “for the children.” Press Secretary Jen Psaki gives Biden and his wife cover as the couple are spotted inside a posh Washington, D.C area restaurant without masks. Psaki states, “Don't overly focus on moments in time.” Universities deputize students and distribute yellow shirts to snitch on their fellow students regarding mask wearing and unsocial distancing. Steven Rosenblum, candidate for Boulder City Council, is stepping forward because of the decline in public safety and infrastructure challenges in Boulder. He believes politics has corrupted the community and that a respectful conversation must happen between those with opposing views. There is so much more that unites our communities than divides us. Steve is readily available to have the conversation to ensure a safe environment for today and future generations. George Allen has been involved in analyzing tax situations for quite some time. He has saved Colorado taxpayers over $300 million through his advocacy work. George understands it's best for individuals to keep their hard-earned money in their own pocket and not hand it over to the overreaching government. When the government is big, the individual is small. As Milton Freidman said, it is best to contain the public sector and let the private sector innovate and produce. The Lone Tree City retail sales increase of 55% is built on many false premises. Vote NO! There is no historical financial crisis. There is no need to purchase the Wildlife Experience. There is no data to support the premise that the tax growth will be static for the next 14 years. Lone Tree has an excellent economic base that will grow. Looking at the increase in taxes in dollars, it is projected to collect and additional $15 million per year, $150 million over a ten-year span. Interesting that the city of Lone Tree has a projected $60 million deficit if the tax is not implemented. At a $150 million minimum new tax revenue increase, it is about two and a half times more than the projected deficit. Vote NO on Lone Tree Question 2E.
Is it true? Do Governments really use their own populations for germ-warfare testing? "In its Senate testimony, the military reluctantly confessed that, in the years 1950-60, they had conducted massive secret experiments to test their bioweapons on the civilian population of the United States." - Can it be that U.S. Citizens cannot trust their own government AND even their own media for not reporting and following up on this important story, especially where we are in the midst of a pandemic? Looking at our governments around the world TODAY, we see: Australia - The tyranny and viciousness of its government and police beating their own citizens senselessly for violating the simplest of covid rules. Israel - Already telling their citizens to get a THIRD shot, and using 'green passports' in order to have 'privileges' that the 'un-vaxxed' don't have. In America - Its CDC website itself shows what is called the 'Shielding Approach', where one can be sent to 'camps/districts' if they are considered HIGH RISK people - whatever that means. U.S. President Biden is mandating that U.S. companies with over 100 employees demand vaccinations from their workers. -France, the UK, Italy, Spain, etc... all of them to one extent or another have imposed covid rules and mandates, taking away freedoms, etc... What is this world coming to? Where have we arrived, and what can we do about it?

Contrary to Mars Hill lore, Mark Driscoll didn't plant his church alone. Though he prized the image of a solo, entrepreneurial pastor, Driscoll found early success thanks to two co-planters, a sending church, and a network of support. And three thousand miles away in Boca Raton, Florida, the concept of the Acts 29 church network was already taking shape as an offshoot of the Spanish River Church Planting Network. Church planting requires a certain audacity, and in the early 1970's nobody had more than David Nicholas. Founder of Spanish River Church, David's burden for evangelism took shape in mentoring relationships with pastors starting congregations of their own. A planter himself, David empathized with those who felt lonely in that particular calling, and he sought to encourage and empower leaders by offering them community -- a network in which they could receive the care, training and accountability to do their jobs well. In this episode of The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill, host Mike Cosper invites us into the room with David Nicholas and Mark Driscoll -- two church planters with widely divergent visions for what constituted successful church growth. Tracing the Acts 29 network from its beginnings, Cosper asks whether any leadership potential is worth overlooking red flags, and whether the broader church actually has what it takes to mentor young leaders with issues of character. “The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill” is a production of Christianity Today Executive Producer: Erik Petrik Produced, written, edited, and hosted by: Mike Cosper Additional editing by Resonate Recordings and Matt Linder Associate produced by Joy Beth Smith Music, sound design, and mixing: Kate Siefker Theme song: “Sticks and Stones” by King's Kaleidescope Closing song: “Citizens” by Jon Guerra Graphic Design: Bryan Todd Social Media: Nicole Shanks Editorial consulting: Andrea Palpant Dilley, Online Managing Editor Christianity Today Editor in Chief: Timothy Dalrymple Learn more about your ad choices.

Lai's work has been collected by MoMA, SFMOMA, Art Institute of Chicago, and LACMA. Bureau Spectacular imagines other worlds and engages design through telling stories. Beautiful stories about character development, relationships, curiosities, and attitudes; absurd stories about impossible realities that invite enticing possibilities. The stories conflate design, representation, theory, criticism, history, and taste into cartoon pages. These cartoon narratives swerve into the physical world through architectural installations, designed objects, interiors, and architecture.

FLOW: Finding Love Over Fear – This year I decided to dip into the “Tweakment” pond. I wanted to do some minimal interventions for my skin and I found the most spectacular dermatologist in Vancouver, BC, Dr. Allison Sutton at West Dermatology.https://westdermatology.caI have shared this journey on social media and your questions came flowing in! Dr. Sutton answers all of them in this beautiful FLOW episode.This topic is typically taboo. I have learned that many women get these non-surgical interventions and they never talk about them. I can understand the desire to keep this close to the vest but it is also doing us a disservice. I wanted to be transparent about this experience and take some of the stigma away. This is your choice. If you want to jump in the pond, that is a personal decision. It is a decision I am very happy I made. I hope this episode will illuminate some of your questions and alleviate some of your fears. And, wear sunscreen y'all!!~We are deeply grateful to our sponsors:Vintners Daughterhttp://vintnersdaughter.comEleven Eleven Wineshttps://www.elevenelevenwines.comMargaret Webb Life Coachinghttps://www.margaretwebblifecoach.comBlueberry Nutritionhttps://blueberry-nutrition.com~This podcast is produced by Citizens of Sound and is edited by the incomparable, Will Retherford. https://www.citizensofsound.com

The cartoonist, writer and illustrator Posy Simmonds brilliantly captures the ambitions and pretensions of the literary world, and the journalist and curator Paul Gravett has worked in comics publishing for decades. Together they bring graphic novels and comic books to the foreground with the Slightly Foxed team. We draw moral lessons from the Ally Sloper cartoons of the 1870s, glimpse Frans Masereel's wordless woodcut stories of the 1920s, view the pictorial politics of Citizen 13660 by Miné Okubo in the 1940s and revisit Art Spiegelman's 1992 Pulitzer Prize-winning Maus before taking a closer look at more contemporary works. From a tragicomic summer with Joff Winterhart, nuclear explosions with Raymond Briggs, the shadow of James Joyce with Mary and Bryan Talbot and an Iranian childhood with Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, the discussion moves through panels, frames, splashes and spreads to Posy Simmonds's own methods in bringing literature to life, including crosshatching to Vivaldi. Originally serialized in the Guardian, Posy's Gemma Bovery builds on the bones of Flaubert's Madame Bovary and Tamara Drewe draws from Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd, while Cassandra Darke takes inspiration from Dickens's A Christmas Carol. Though rooted in the classics, the devil is in Posy's detail, be it real French coffee pots, the joy of characters' names, such as Kevin Penwallet, and fictional places, such as Tresoddit. We continue our travels off the beaten track with our usual round-up of reading recommendations, and a trip to Gilbert White's House and Gardens in Hampshire, where we view the landscapes that sparked his evergreen classic The Natural History of Selborne.

Chaos ensues as Oberon and Titania fail to balance the natural climate and Puck accidentally interrupts the course of true love in the woods. Welcome to the premiere episode of the Play On Podcasts' Series Coriolanus. Synopsis: Titania offers to restore the balance of nature with Oberon but refuses his demand to hand over custody of her fairy child to him. In revenge, Oberon sends Puck to fetch a flower that has a magic potion which, when dropped on anyone's eyelids, will make them fall madly in love with the next thing they see. Meanwhile, Lysander and Hermia lose their way in the woods and fall asleep as Demetrius and Helena hunt for them. Oberon witnesses how badly Demetrius treats Helena and directs Puck to apply the magic potion to Demetrius's eyes as well as Titania's. Puck drops the potion in Titania's eyes but mistakes Lysander for Demetrius. When Helena finds Lysander and wakes him up, he instantly falls in love with her. Helena runs from him, Lysander follows her, and Hermia is left alone in the woods to fend for herself.

We talk about the latest COVID surge in Wisconsin and update the status of the stalled Build Back Better plan in Congress. Will the new alliance between moderate and progressive Democrats produce generational reform, or will it crash and burn, dooming the Biden presidency?

All 5 are necessary ingredients to define the Kingdom of God King Rule or a reign A People A Law Land So, it's a king who rules by rescuing and saving people. A People who live the way of Jesus reflecting and imaging the king in sacred space… we are sacred space but our home and churches are also this space and we take this Kingdom with us and expand it as we live like the king and teach others to live under his Rule and his Law. The Gospel Both Jesus and Paul derived this important word (Gospel) from the prophetic poetry of Isaiah in the Old Testament (Isaiah 52:7-10) where the future arrival of God's Kingdom through the Messiah is called good news. The 4 Spiritual Laws and the Romans Road all contain “truths” but look a lot different than the way the apostles presented the Gospel in the Bible. The Gospel Romans 1:1-4; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; 2 Tim 2:8 The Gospel is about Jesus and not us. We can't let the benefits of the gospel run the conversation of the gospel. Simple Gospel:Jesus is King We have a response to make when the gospel is presented... which kingdom will you be part of? Acts 17:5-7…no king but Christ. Are we being accused of turning the world upside-down by our gospel? And how we live it out? How do we live? Skinny Jeans All about social justice and humanitarian efforts Kingdom to them means: good deed done by good people in the public sector for the common good We often hear from these people that “I don't want to work in the church, I want to do Kingdom Work” Pleated Pants Usually means God's rule or reign but rarely means his realm. Concentration on souls… salvation… Savior vs. Lord….Kingdom is purely religious and about getting to heaven. Kingdom work as public activism… trying to get our states and government to be “moral” or transform the culture. 3rd Way John Nugent: “Our responsibility is not to make the world a better place, but to be the better place God has begun in this world through Christ. We are his kingdom work. We are ambassadors who proclaim what God has done, is doing, and will do. God's strategy is for his people not to fix this world but to plant a new world in the midst of the old one and to woo the old world to Himself through it. As followers of Jesus, the body of Christ, the new humanity and new creation is us. A new creation as begun in the midst of the old world that remains. It is the new world of God's Kingdom and its people. So God's people are not responsible for making the world a better place, but for being the better place that Christ has already made… the early believers were vocal in proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and visible in living it out in community… the church's calling centers on being the better place God began in Jesus.” John 13:35 By our love for one another, the world will know you are my disciples. John 17:23 By being in unity, the world will know that the Father has sent Jesus. Phil 1:27; 1 Thes 4:10-12; Eph 3:10
Today we have a special edition of the Destination Angler Podcast on a very important issue affecting our cold-water fisheries – climate change. Like many of you, over the past few years, I've been watching the news and hearing more and more about our climate. No matter where you stand on man-made or natural, it's hard to ignore things seem to be warming up, especially this past summer, which was the hottest summer on record. As I began to look into this I came across a report on the Impact of Global Warming on Trout in the Interior West that 50% of cutthroat trout habitat will be gone by 2080 if nothing is done. Can you imagine a world where half of our Cutthroat trout habitat is gone? To help us better understand climate change, our guests are Helen Neville, Senior Scientist, and Sara Porterfield, Water Policy Associate with Trout Unlimited. We debunk fact from fiction, the impact of our warming climate on our cold-water fisheries, and most importantly what we can do about it.
