Most Doctors And Researchers Are Trapped In A System That Promotes The Status Quo Dr Jonathan Stegall MD • http://www.cancersecrets.com• Book – Cancer Secrets #JonathanStegall#Cancer #IntegrativeOncology Dr Jonathan Stegall MD is a medical Integrative Oncology doctor and a bestselling author of Cancer Secrets and host of an award-winning podcast, The Cancer Secrets Podcast. His book Cancer Secrets is a much-needed resource for cancer patients and their families, with vital information on evidenced-based treatments from both modern medicine and alternative medicine This book is about Cancer being the second leading cause of death in the United States, and will soon overtake heart disease as the #1 killer. This year alone in the United States, there will be 1.7 million new cancer cases, and over 600,000 cancer deaths. The lifetime risk of developing cancer is now 1 in 3 people, and is quickly approaching 1 in 2. Despite billions of dollars devoted to cancer research, we are no closer to a cure. Sadly, we are losing the war on cancer. Patients diagnosed with cancer, as well as their family and friends, are left with a difficult decision: do I follow the standard of care, consisting of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, or do I seek alternative treatments on my own? Do I listen to my doctor, or do I follow advice from the internet? Who do I listen to? Who can I trust? Until now, cancer patients and their families did not have a reliable resource for optimally treating cancer. In this breakthrough book, Cancer Secrets, you will learn critical information about what cancer is (and is not) and how to best treat it using the best that both modern medicine and alternative medicine have to offer. Integrative oncologist, Jonathan Stegall, MD, provides a long-awaited and much-needed remedy for our cancer problem. Dr. Stegall has a successful integrative oncology practice in Atlanta, GA, and has seen first hand what works and what doesn't when it comes to cancer treatment. This book is a "must have" if you or a loved one is fighting cancer! Dr. Stegall believes that there are many potentially valuable therapies which are not (yet) part of the conventional standard of care. All of these therapies have a scientific study suggesting their mechanism of action and potential therapeutic benefit. These therapies include, but are not limited to, local hyperthermia, sono-photodynamic therapy, lymphatic drainage therapy, nutrition, supplementation, and stress reduction therapy. These therapies, which are all considered natural approaches, make sense to incorporate as well.He earned his bachelor's degree at Clemson University and master's degree in physiology from Georgetown University. He earned his medical degree at the University of South Carolina. After medical school he did his internal medicine residency through the Yale University School of Medicine, with clinical training at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, Conn., as well a Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Conn. Then completed his fellowship in Integrative Oncology through the Metabolic Medical Institute, affiliated with the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. He holds membership in several organizations, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO), and the International Organization of Integrative Cancer Physicians (IOICP).The Center for Advanced Medicine is transforming how cancer is treated. I am very proud of the transformative work we do, and the powerful difference we make in the lives of our patients. I run my practice in a way that is consistent with my Christian faith, based on love. My team and I love what we do, and we love the patients we treat.He is married and has two sons and a daughter.

When it comes to ensuring the spiritual well-being of our children, how do we go beyond just “raising them in church”? As the next generation navigates unprecedented issues surrounding gender identity, doubt, and resistance to the Christian faith—it won't be enough for them to simply have the faith of their parents. How do we equip them to become disciples of Jesus Christ in a hostile world?According to Barna and USA today, nearly 59% of youth leave the church after they graduate, and only17% maintain a Biblical worldview. According to a Lifeway survey, the most common catalysts for leaving the church are moving to college, witnessing hypocrisy within the church, and no longer feeling connected to the body of Christ.This week, Jonathan welcomes Hillary Morgan Ferrer to Candid Conversations. Her passion is to help equip parents to answer the questions their children will inevitably ask and teach them how to “demolish arguments raised against the knowledge of God” (2 Cor. 10:5). She is the founder and Mama-Bear-in-Chief of Mama Bear Apologetics, and she has a burden to help provide accessible apologetics resources for busy parents. Together, Jonathan and Hillary discuss how we can better equip families with resources and critical thinking skills, including her own methodology called “ROAR,” to help recognize unbiblical ideas and develop discernment.Hillary is the chief author and editor of the bestselling book, Mama Bear Apologetics: Empowering Your Kids to Challenge Cultural Lies and Mama Bear Apologetics Guide to Sexuality: Empowering Your Kids to Understand and Live Out God's Design. Hillary has her master's degree in biology from Clemson University and is working on her master's in apologetics from Biola University. She loves helping parents discern both truths and lies, understand science and culture, and understand the root causes of doubt.Visit the Mama Bear Apologetics' blog: https://mamabearapologetics.comTo ask Jonathan a question or connect with the Candid community, visit https://LTW.org/CandidFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/candidpodInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/candidpodTwitter: https://twitter.com/thecandidpod

In this season of Beyond the Meter, we're taking a closer look at the meaningful impact business energy project have on the world around us. Host John Failla is joined by Jay Harris, Director of Data Center Services and Facilities for Clemson University, and Wayne Johnson, Key Segment Manager for Education at Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions. They discuss their organizations' collaboration on energy infrastructure projects and provide insights into why these projects are critical to the university's overall success. You will want to hear this episode if you are interested in... Data operations at Clemson [04:16] Duke Energy's role in Clemson's upgrades [08:10] The partnership structure [11:38] Flexible contracts that grow as the business need grows [15:54] Impactful Projects [21:11] Major benefits of Duke Energy partnerships [28:23] “Outsourcing vs right-sourcing” Key lessons and tips for innovative energy [33:07] Advice for the academic sector [37:00] The Journey to Success In 2007, due to a breaker labeling error, Clemson University had both of its 20-year-old UPS (uninterruptible power supply) o out. That incident led the university to prioritize upgrades. The university would have needed several years to do the research required to fully understand the design and procurement to get the upgrades done. This is when Clemson turned to Duke Energy for guidance. The university started the conversation with Duke Energy in April of 2007. By mid-November, the university had a new generator, two new UPSs, 250-ton air-cooled water chiller, and four new computer room air handlers. The university went from piecemealing together their strategy to a fully functioning infrastructure. A Board-Approved Financing Option Clemson University worked with Duke Energy to identify areas that are ready to be improved or equipment that needs to be replaced. The university signed a 10-year agreement with Duke Energy and amortizes the cost across the length of that agreement essentially transferring CapEx to OpEx. Instead of needing the funds upfront to purchase and install equipment, the contract spreads the cost across 10 years. This structure has made budgeting a lot easier for the university. Approval is easier with an amortization schedule vs. obtaining approval for millions of dollars upfront. Most university campuses are struggling with deferred maintenance costs, especially in facilities. Now Clemson University's facilities team can propose a solution that removes them from the CapEx competition on campus in exchange for a little more OpEx. Not only will this help with resiliency, sustainability, and efficiency initiatives now, but it will also make sure those goals deliver across the lifespan of those assets. An innovative business model Part of what makes Duke Energy's contracts so successful is their flexibility. Duke Energy has its own in-house structuring, counsel, engineering, and operations teams. These teams determine what each client is good at, and then Duke Energy prices and builds solutions around what the customers do and what they need. As a company, Duke Energy wants to have relationships with customers working collaboratively to deliver solutions across time because that's where the most significant energy savings and reliability services outcomes are found. Considerable savings can occur when working together to develop these contracts and partnerships. Rather than simply selling a product and leaving the rest to the customer, Duke Energy is involved in the design, build, operations and maintenance phases. Working through these phases with a single vendor can save money while achieving the comprehensive outcomes, including sustainability, reliability, and resiliency. Resources & People Mentioned Case Study: Clemson University Information Technology Center Clemson University Note: The above project was performed by Duke Energy's Business Energy Services team. Duke Energy Sustainable Solutions leverages these specialists to deliver innovative solutions to customers.

Click link to Register Intro CEO of Classical Conversations is a job that Robert Bortins was born to do…literally. Leigh Bortins dissatisfied with the education options she found as a new mom, decided first to homeschool her four sons, and then decided to develop her own curriculum, and Robert, her oldest son, was her first pupil. Robert has a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from Clemson University in 2006. After graduating, he worked as a management trainee for UPS and as a plant engineer for Easy Gardener, a Jobes company. In 2011 he returned to the family business, Classical Conversations, Inc., to develop a marketing program. He was then appointed CEO of the family-owned company in 2012. In the years since Robert Bortins became CEO of Classical Conversations, the company has grown by 300 percent and has become the world's largest classical homeschooling organization. Robert is a member of the board of directors of Homeschool Now USA, the Carolinas Rugby Union and the Clemson University Rugby Foundation Board. He is also a member of C12 Group, the largest professional development network of Christian CEOs and executives. Under Robert's leadership, Classical Conversations has been named a Certified Best Christian Workplace by BCWI for four years in a row. Very Powerful, Convicting and Thought Provoking Takeaways You do not need to be a trained educator to teach your children; sometimes being trained is a hinderance since homeschooling is not schooling at home but a way of life, and unlearning those habits can be hard. When parents say they cannot be around their children all day is a sign of a deeper that parents do not want to address. Not wanting to be around your kid also means you did not raise them in way that you would want to be around them. Education is to prepare you to engage in life and with those around you. Homeschooling allows your teenager to mature in the areas that are important and will benefit them and their future society.

Have you been wondering what's the difference between a multifamily commercial vs an industrial commercial? Do you want to learn how to foresee if your investment has high value in the long run before closing the deal? There's a difference when running a multi-family to industrial commercial– from fishing out for a deal to closing one. So how should you be choosing deals in the competitive real estate market? Cody Lewis is a founding partner for Vendue Capital, LLC. He is involved in property acquisition, investor relations, and asset management for the company. Prior to Vendue Capital, Cody worked for leading technology companies such as Apple, Verizon Wireless, and CompuComand Jamf in the management of Business-to-Business Sales and Engineering as well as Business Accounts Executive. After educating himself in real estate investments and exploring many avenues of investments, he became a partner of Vendue Capital to acquire multi-family properties. Cody produces the podcast, Real Estate UnSuccess Stories, where other investors share stories of unforeseen problems in investing, resolutions, and the lessons learned. Cody graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics. He resides in Charlestown, SC with his wife and twin sons. In his free time, he enjoys time with his family and his season tickets to Clemson University football games. In this episode, Cody shares the difference of having a multifamily and industrial commercial and how to foresee the value of your investments through IRR. What you'll learn in just 17 minutes from today's episode: Find out why you can't just keep on accepting real estate deals without analyzing them in the long run Understand what is IRR and how it can help determine if the real estate is worth investing Know what kind of value you should be looking for when investing in real estate Topics Covered: 01:10 - Cody's background in real estate investing and journey into scaling into the multifamily space. 03:20 - Why haven't Cody and his partner been closing deals recently? 06:43 - Cody explains how their competitors are making money with the deals that Cody's turning down. 07:43 - What does IRR mean? 11:16 - Is Cody starting to look at any other kind of asset classes? 13:22 - Cody's website: Venduecapital.com Key Takeaways: “If you underwrote any deal back, you know, in 2020, 2021, even this year, a lot of things are still on future value. And there's a ton of risk that you have to take to bring maybe a cap rate that you're seeing.” - Cody Lewis “As those cap rates were just continuing to get compressed, it just didn't make sense. We were looking at well, there's just there's not a lot of value to be added here.” - Cody Lewis “We like to look at things from a long-term standpoint-- five-to-seven-year hold, or even longer, depending on what the market dictates. We underwrite for cash flow, that's our primary focus. We want to make sure regardless of what the value is of the property, if we need to, we can hold it for longer.” - Cody Lewis “The equity is heavily weighted in favor of the passive investors. Well, as that IRR starts to creep up, the equity split starts to balance out or become more in favor of the partnership group, the general partnership group, and it does behoove them to perform at this level.” - Cody Lewis “It was less about these groups performing the property really well and driving the NOI up and adding value to the property, it was more so that the market and the interest rates were really just taking that to the next level.” - Cody Lewis Connect with Cody Lewis: Website: https://www.venduecapital.com/ Email: Cody@venduecapital.com Connect with Dave Dubeau: Podcast: http://www.propertyprofitspodcast.com/ Website: https://davedubeau.com/home Investor Attraction Workshop: http://www.investorattractionworkshop.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thedavedubeau LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/davedubeau

He explains how proactive rest, patient growth and intentional interactions can support employees on their best and worst days, uniting the workforce and driving talent outcomes. Brian Kropp is a distinguished vice president in Gartner's HR research practice. He oversees Gartner's research, tools, services and support for CHROs and their leadership teams. Before joining Gartner, he worked in a variety of roles, conducting different types of economic analysis to drive critical business outcomes.

#403: September Sabbatical continued! If you've been listening to the show for the past few years, then you know that we've entered our September Sabbatical, where the team takes a break from podcast production and airs a few of our favorites from the 400+ episodes we've aired to date. F.I.R.E. holds four pillars: Financial psychology, Investing, Real estate, and Entrepreneurship. This September, we're running four weeks of episodes focusing on each of these four pillars. Today's episode is focused on real estate. —------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Chad Carson's friends called him a “nerdjock.” When former college football linebacker Chad Carson graduated from Clemson University, he decided to start a business. But he didn't have any money. He was a 235-pound athlete who attended college on a football scholarship. He graduated debt-free with $1,000 in savings from various odd jobs. He wanted to become an entrepreneur, and he knew he was starting from zero. As Chad viewed it, starting from zero meant he had nothing to lose. He started jogging around local neighborhoods near the university. Whenever he noticed a property in disrepair, he'd ask if it was for sale. If he noticed a ‘For Sale by Owner' sign in the yard, for example, he'd dial the number. If he noticed a home with an overgrown lawn and no curtains in the windows, he'd leave a note on the door, or he'd knock on the neighbor's doors to get the owner's phone number. By doing this, Chad started a real estate wholesaling business. He'd find off-market properties, enter into a sales contract with the owner, and then ‘flip' the contract to an investor. He earned around $5,000 for each deal. The benefit to a wholesaling business, Chad discovered, is that he could get a foothold inside the real estate industry without much access to capital. He was a recent college graduate without any official employment, so most banks weren't interested in offering him loans. Wholesaling gave him a start in the industry. But after awhile, he wanted to chase bigger deals. He and a business partner decided to start flipping houses themselves. They earned profits of around $20,000 to $30,000 for each deal. While this was great, Chad wanted to transition into something that would provide a steady, stable income stream. He was running an active business; he wasn't accumulating a portfolio of passive investments. He and his business partner stopped flipping homes and began accumulating buy-and-hold rental properties. Today they have 90 units between the two of them. A few years ago, Chad realized that the passive income from his investments made him financially independent. He and his wife decided to enjoy their newfound freedom by moving to Ecuador with their two children, ages 3 and 5. They spent 17 months living in Ecuador, learning Spanish and enjoying a slower pace of life. They recently returned to the U.S. and are considering moving to either Spain or Germany — or maybe Colorado? — for their next adventure. In today's episode, Chad and I discuss real estate, financial independence, and international travel with children. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
This is a segment of episode 329 of Last Born In The Wilderness “Fortress Conservation: Biodiversity Crisis & The Second Scramble For Africa w/ Aby Sène.” Listen to the full episode: https://www.lastborninthewilderness.com/episodes/aby-sene Read ‘Western Nonprofits Are Trampling Over Africans' Rights and Land' (Foreign Policy), and ‘Land grabs and conservation propaganda' (Africa is a Country): https://bit.ly/3Bq3eEE / https://bit.ly/3Ui5XbN Dr. Aby Sène joins me to discuss fortress conservationism and the 30x30 plan, a proposal by Western conservation agencies and their corporate and state allies "to double the coverage of protected areas around the world by setting aside 30 percent of terrestrial cover for conservation by 2030." On the surface, the 30x30 proposal (the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework) to protect biodiversity and wildlife seems like a promising step in halting deforestation, unfettered resource extraction, and poaching of endangered wildlife across Africa, but as Dr. Sène eloquently describes in her work, this plan is but a continuation of the colonialist dynamics that have existed between the Global North and the Global South for centuries. These conservation efforts, aptly termed "fortress conservation,” is in reality part of a “colossal land grab," displacing indigenous communities from their lands and depriving them of traditional sources of sustenance and place-based cultural practices. There are many threads to follow in examining what is actually taking place here, but to provide some more context, Dr. Sène writes in ‘Land grabs and conservation propaganda': “Many conservation NGOs are led by Western capitalists who indulge their own private interests and bankroll platforms like Capitals Coalition to push ideas about the best way to save the last remaining African wildlife. Western financiers like Goldman Sachs and The Blackstone Group are working in unison with international conservation NGOs seizing on the biodiversity crisis to package predatory agendas under the guise of conservation. Yet the violence and sheer pace and scale at which conservation in Africa absorbs Indigenous lands to be integrated into the global capitalist system for commodification has gone vastly uncriticized. Why is that, and what forces sustain such an enduring yet insidious image of moral high ground in conservation?” Dr. Aby Sène-Harper is an assistant professor in parks and conservation area management at Clemson University. She is a trained interdisciplinary environmental social researcher whose work advances socially and ecologically just approaches to managing public lands, natural and cultural resources in the US and in Africa. Her research lies at the intersections of parks and protected area governance, livelihoods, nature-based tourism, and Race and nature. In the US her work interrogates how history and culture mediate African American relationships with nature, and cultural landscapes. In Africa, her work centers on the colonial structures of power in conservation, and integrative conservation approaches such as livelihood-centered projects, ecotourism and community-based conservation.
