In 2020 and 2021, the scam that impacted the largest number of people was done through online purchases. Either you or someone you know may very well have been scammed. Today's guest is Melissa Trumpower. Melissa Trumpower is the Executive Director of the BBB Institute for Marketplace Trust, the Educational Foundation of the Better Business Bureau. Melissa is the co-author of several research reports, including the BBB Scam Tracker Risk Report, the BBB Online Purchase and Employment and Small Business Scam Reports. She has more than 30 years of leadership experience working with not-for-profit, has a bachelor's degree from Cornell University and a master's from John Hopkins University. Show Notes: [1:01] - Welcome to the show, Melissa! Melissa shares her current role with BBB and the mission of the organization. [2:05] - Scam trackers from the BBB were created in 2015 to be really intentional and specific to track data on threats. [3:30] - Melissa explains why she was drawn to this position with BBB. [5:09] - Due to Covid, more people were online in 2020 and 2021 and online purchasing scams were the riskiest. [6:25] - The BBB utilizes a risk index that looks at more than just the most prevalent of scams. [7:23] - Online purchase scams don't involve a lot of money per individual target, but they are riskiest because of how many of them are extremely believable. [8:37] - Online purchase scams are simple. You purchase an item from a website or an ad and you never receive the item. [9:45] - Be aware that you can come across fake websites in your web searches as well. [10:46] - Melissa shares things to look for in sites that you have never purchased from before. [11:56] - Don't do anything rash especially if you feel like something is off. [13:03] - The method of payment can be a red flag. [14:21] - Crypto is also increasingly used in online purchase scams. [16:43] - Be very careful even when sending crypto to someone you know and be certain you are sending it to the right person. [17:04] - Employment scams are another top scam for the third year in a row. [19:24] - Employment scams average a loss of over $900 per target. [20:38] - Some job listings, especially on Craigslist, tend to be very vague and promising. [22:55] - The other two top scams are home improvement scams and investment scams. [24:24] - If you are investing money, do the research before making decisions. Melissa gives examples of what you can do to ensure safety. [27:25] - Scammers do sometimes also pose as legitimate companies. [28:02] - Don't believe everything you see or read. Be cautious. [29:28] - Another element BBB is looking at is the non-financial impact of scams. [30:42] - The highest scam for susceptibility is the moving scam. [32:29] - Consumers often read reviews and it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a real or fake review. Thanks for joining us on Easy Prey.

Emnet Tafesse and Ranjit Singh: A Social Science Approach to AI [Ep. 267] AI is an interdisciplinary field that draws on many fields of study, including computer science, psychology, neuroscience, and mathematics. AI researchers often bring a social science perspective to the field. They want to understand the social implications of AI and to identify ways that humans can best interact with AI systems. Social scientists look at how people interact with AI systems and how these interactions might change over time. Social scientists also want to understand how AI systems learn from human behavior and make predictions about how people will behave in the future. There are two main types of social science approaches to AI. The first is an approach that focuses on the ethical implications of AI. This approach assumes that we cannot build AI without carefully considering its ethical implications for society. The second type of social science approach is an approach that looks at the psychological impact of AI on humans. This approach assumes that humans could feel uncomfortable or threatened by the presence of AI in their lives. Social scientists use these approaches to help us better understand and predict the impact of AI on society as a whole. Emnet Tafesse and Ranjit Singh contrast the differences in how researchers in the “Global South” and “Global North” investigate the social impacts of artificial intelligence. Bio Emnet Tefesse @emnetspeaks Emnet Tafesse is a Research Analyst at Data & Society on the AI on the Ground Initiative. She has a passion for utilizing advocacy, research, and policy to create positive social change and a more equitable world. She received her Master's in Public Policy from the University of Chicago and her BA in Political Science and Sociology from Howard University. Ranjit Singh http://ranjitsingh.me/ Ranjit has a doctorate in Science and Technology Studies (STS) from Cornell University. His research lies at the intersection of data infrastructures, global development, and public policy. He uses methods of interview-based qualitative sociology and multi-sited ethnography in his research. He examines the everyday experiences of people subject to data-driven practices and follows the mutual shaping of their lives and their data records. Resources AI on the Ground Blog Series

In this episode, we have featured guest speaker Doctor Mitra Ray, who has thirty years of experience and helping people create massive change in their lives and trauma healing journeys. She has a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and a Ph.D. from Stanford, and she's the co-founder and CEO of REST. This conversation was so incredible, and I felt like, literally, just tapping the surface of this experience of what trauma does to the brain. We get deep into neuropsychology, neuroplasticity, and how your neurons fire in the amygdala of the hippocampus – parahippocampus. I'm am so happy that I get a share with you it's times like this where I'm like, man, if people just pay attention or what they're about to learn, I'm telling you, if you just pay attention to what Doctor Ray is going to teach us today it will change your life, I promise you because it changed mine and many of the things that we talk about are some of the same experiences that I've been through. As we go through, we're going to talk about the science, the research of trauma, and some key things that you can do to bring into your life to create change starting today. You could change your brain today, at this moment, and go from this process of being traumatized into being the hero of your own story. This is a conversation where you need to grab a pen and a piece of paper. If you watch on YouTube, you'll see on taking notes as we're going because this is such an incredible conversation. Even in the depths of this journey that I've been in over a decade of this work and five years of being really, really, really deep into the science of trauma, I even learn more today.

Sometimes it feels like we're living the same day over and over again. We wake up in the same bed, eat the same breakfast, do the same tasks, and talk to the same people, just coasting along and going through the motions. Taking a vacation can offer a temporary break from the mundane; at the same time, it only reinforces the sameness of daily life. In Adrienne Celt's new novel End of the World House, Bertie and Kate are longtime best friends who are about to be separated when Kate moves to a different city. The world is enmeshed in conflict, but a ceasefire gives them a chance to head to Paris for a vacation and one last hurrah. While in Paris, a mysterious person offers them an exclusive tour of the Louvre museum, where things quickly start to go awry. The apocalypse heats up, the friends become separated, and Bertie starts reliving the same day over and over. As Bertie tries to find Kate and get things back on track, she faces an ever-changing mystery and distortions of time and reality. As we make our way out of our own pandemic time loop, Celt offers a timely and comedic story of female friendship and breaking free of the humdrum.

This is episode 14 of paranormal stories. This week the books are 'THE AFTERLIFE EVIDENCE: Comforting and Convincing Proof That No One Really Dies' by Dr Mark PitstickAnd 'Truth, Lies and ETs: How We Stumbled into the Universe' By Don donderiAs you may know I produce two podcasts, the past lives podcast and the Alien UFO Podcast and it is here that I combine the two.When I have guests on my podcasts I read their books to research and work out questions for the episodes.When reading these books I always find such fascinating information which never makes it into the podcast and here I get a chance to give you a peek into the book.I did seek permission to record these extracts from the books and the authors kindly said yes.Dr. Mark Pitstick - 'The Afterlife Evidence: Comforting and Convincing Proof That No One Really Dies'.We live in an extremely exciting time in which life after death has been proven by scientific research, clinical studies, and firsthand experiences. Deeply knowing that life continues after the body dies is a HUGE key to living fully and fearlessly during your earthly experience.For the first time in human history, you can know – without a doubt – that life after death is real. The collective evidence validates afterlife teachings by religious and spiritual groups over the millennia. You can now breathe a huge sigh of relief, release all fear that death is an end, and enjoy the greatest life you have envisioned.Mark worked in hospitals part-time while completing his pre-med studies and attending theology school. After seeing many people suffer and die – especially children – he collected every piece of information he could find about the subject of life after death. Fifty years later, you and your family and friends can benefit from his search.The bottom line? Death of the earthly form is a natural and totally safe part of your unending life that began before you came to earth and continues after your physical shell perishes.The more you know that great news, the easier it is to remember who you are, why you are here, Who walks beside you always, and live accordingly. As more and more people do this, positive transformation for many people and our planet naturally flows.The word 'REALLY' in the subtitle addresses the obvious quandary that blocks some people from really 'getting' that no one dies. Yes, the earthly form of you and your loved ones dies. But the capitalized word 'REALLY' reminds you about this ultra-important fact: after the human body perishes, over 99% of who and what you are is still alive in a different time realm.In addition to the afterlife evidence, Mark shares real life examples of how this information helped themafter: a child changed worlds, family member passed on by suicide, spouse graduated from earth-school, received a terminal medical diagnosis, and more.BioMark Pitstick, MA, DC, has fifty years' experience and training in hospitals, pastoral counseling settings, mental health centers and private practice. His training includes a premedical degree, graduate theology / pastoral counseling studies, masters in clinical psychology, doctorate in chiropractic health care, and extensive postgrad training in clinical nutrition. He also has provided suicide prevention counseling and education to many people.Mark became aware of clairaudient experiences at age ten and has since been blessed with numerous miracles, revelatory, and spiritually transformative experiences. After working in hospitals with many suffering and dying adults and children, he was motivated to find evidence-based answers to questions that many people ask: “Who am I? Why am I here? What happens after I die? Will I see my departed loved ones again? Is there a God? If so, why is there so much suffering? and How can I best live during this brief earthly experience?”His books, documentary film, audio products, and experiential webinars / workshops address all of these questions. They can help you survive and even thrive through life's biggest changes and challenges. Further, his work helps you discover how to enjoy the greatest life you have envisioned—no matter what your past was or your current circumstances are.https://www.amazon.com/Afterlife-Evidence-Comforting-Convincing-REALLY-ebook/dp/B09QY15X3J/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1652428730&sr=8-1https://www.soulproof.com/Don Donderi - 'Truth, Lies and ETs: How We Stumbled into the Universe'.Earth is in the middle of a revolution.

Witness to World War II in Austria, Benedictine monk for the last 66 years, friend to Swami Satchidananda, and internationally-recognized practitioner of gratitude Brother David Steindl-Rast sits down to talk with Avi Gordon of the Integral Yoga Teachers Association. The discussion covers prayer and meditation, Swami Satchidananda, gratitude, fear and trust, the remembrance of death, joy, and other topics.Network for Grateful Living: https://gratefulness.org/Brother David's Bio (from A Network for Grateful Living):David Steindl-Rast was born Franz Kuno Steindl-Rast on July 12, 1926, in Vienna, Austria, and spent his early years there and in a small village in the Alps. He spent all of his teen years under the Nazi occupation, was drafted into the army, but never went to the front lines. He eventually escaped and was hidden by his mother until the occupation ended.After the war, Franz studied art, anthropology, and psychology, receiving an MA from the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts and a PhD from the University of Vienna. In 1952 he followed his family who had emigrated to the United States. In 1953 he joined a newly founded Benedictine community in Elmira, NY, Mount Saviour Monastery, where he became “Brother David.” In 1958/59 Brother David was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University, where he also became the first Roman Catholic to hold the Thorpe Lectureship, following Bishop J.D.R. Robinson and Paul Tillich.After twelve years of monastic training and studies in philosophy and theology, Brother David was sent by his abbot to participate in Buddhist-Christian dialogue, for which he received Vatican approval in 1967. His Zen teachers were Hakuun Yasutani Roshi, Soen Nakagawa Roshi, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, and Eido Shimano Roshi. He co-founded the Center for Spiritual Studies in 1968 and received the 1975 Martin Buber Award for his achievements in building bridges between religious traditions.Together with Thomas Merton, Brother David helped launch a renewal of religious life. From 1970 on, he became a leading figure in the House of Prayer movement, which affected some 200,000 members of religious orders in the United States and Canada. Since the 1970s Brother David has been a member of cultural historian William Irwin Thompson‘s Lindisfarne Association.”He has contributed to a wide range of books and periodicals from the Encyclopedia Americana and The New Catholic Encyclopedia, to the New Age Journal and Parabola Magazine. His books have been translated into many languages. Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer and A Listening Heart have been reprinted and anthologized for more than two decades. Brother David co-authored Belonging to the Universe (winner of the 1992 American Book Award), a dialogue on new paradigm thinking in science and theology with physicist, Fritjof Capra. His dialogue with Buddhists produced The Ground We Share: Buddhist and Christian Practice, co-authored with Robert Aitken Roshi. His most recent books are Words of Common Sense for MInd, Body and Soul; Deeper than Words: Living the Apostles' Creed; 99 Blessings: An Invitation to Life; The Way of Silence: Engaging the Sacred in Daily Life; Faith beyond Belief: Spirituality for our Times; and his autobiography, i am through you so i.Brother David has contributed chapters or interviews to well over 30 books.

Don't you hate it when a doctor makes you wait well past your appointment time? Why do they do that? Should you complain? What's a reasonable amount of time to wait before you say something? This episode begins with some interesting insight into the problem and what you should do to make sure the doctor understands your time is valuable. https://www.fiercehealthcare.com/practices/ppatients-switched-doctors-long-wait-times-vitals# How effective is peer pressure? Are we really influenced by the people around us - and if so, how much? Do we exert peer pressure on other without realizing it? Is there a way to use peer pressure to get people to change their behavior? Joining me to discuss all this is Robert Frank, a professor of Management and Economics at Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management and author of the book Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work (https://amzn.to/3L4HPno). Only 2% of people claim they never feel shy. The rest of us have all been in situations where we have felt shy to some degree. Why does that happen? Why are some people more shy than others? How can you overcome that feeling in situations that really matter? Here to help is Lynn Henderson. She has worked with shy people to help them break free from those shy feelings that hold them back from fully participating in life. Lynne is the founder of the Social Fitness Center and the founder and co-director of the Shyness Institute. She is also author of The Shyness Workbook (https://amzn.to/3sA1Njp).

On this episode, Ashley Colby (@RizomaSchool) discusses doom, prepping and bunkers, and building resilient communities with Dr. Chris Ellis (@Prep4Disasters) and Brad Garrett (@Goblinmerchant). This is a fascinating look at the prepper movement, and surviving the myriad coming crises. About Dr. Chris Ellis Dr. Chris Ellis is a subject matter expert on individual household disaster preparedness in the United States and other developed countries. He focuses on large-scale catastrophic threats, including natural, manmade, and spiritual events. Quantitative work and interests include deep analysis on FEMA's annual National Household Survey. Qualitative work amalgamates – under the theory of ontological security – a model that matches fears, motivations, and government action (or inaction), with household response levels to assorted threats and potential futures. Chris earned his PhD at Cornell University, has four master's degrees, and is an active duty Army Colonel with nearly 23 years of service. About Bradley Garrett Bradley Garrett is an American social and cultural geographer at University College Dublin in Ireland and a writer for The Guardian newspaper in the United Kingdom. He describes his research interests as being at the intersections of cultural geography, archaeology and visual methods and writes that his research is about "finding the hidden in the world". He is the author of five books including Bunker: Building for the End Times, a contemporary account of doomsday preppers around the world, and Explore Everything: Place-Hacking the City, an ethnographic account of the activities of the London Consolidation Crew (LCC), a group of urban explorers Garrett calls "place hackers". About Ashley Colby Ashley is an Environmental Sociologist who studied at Washington State University, the department that founded the subdiscipline. She's interested in and passionate about the myriad creative ways in which people are forming new social worlds in resistance to the failures of late capitalism and resultant climate disasters. I am a qualitative researcher so I tend to focus on the informal spaces of innovation. She's the founder of Rizoma Field School and Rizoma Foundation.
Creating sustainable self-care practices involves The realization that slowing down is still moving forward Replacing the habits you remove with something positive and fulfilling Asking for and receiving what you want and need Using natural solutions from plants to support your wellness practices Spending quality time in nature Do you find it hard to carve out time for yourself every single day? Like me, I bet there are days when you feel pulled in a million different directions, tending to everyone's needs but your own. It takes dedication to stick to self-care practices while living a full, and sometimes hectic life. I get how self-care doesn't always go according to plans. That's why I brought on today's guest to share her key wellness practices to embrace despite being overscheduled and busy. About Jovanka Ciares Jovanka Ciares is the author of Reclaiming Wellness and several other titles. A certified wellness expert, integrative herbalist, nutrition educator, and coach, she offers lectures and workshops in Spanish and English. Jovanka studied nutrition with bestselling author T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., at his Center for Nutrition Studies (in partnership with Cornell University) and herbalism/plant medicine with Tieraona Low Dog, MD. A native of Puerto Rico, she lives in Los Angeles. Slowing Down and Getting Support So You Can Do More For Yourself Adapting wellness practices to your life, especially when you're overwhelmed, is no simple task. Yet, as Jovanka explains, transformational habits and rituals can be integrated with ease and grace. This involves realizing that just because you might be slowing down, you are still moving forward. It also involves replacing the habits you remove with something more fulfilling. You'll likely need to ask others to support you with this. Don't be afraid to do so because receiving in itself is an act of generosity as Jovanka explains. FInding Natural Support from Plants and Herbs An essential part of Jovanka's process involves the medicinal nature of plants. Whether you need focus, energy, or relaxation, tapping into the power of plants can go a long way in supporting your wellness practices. Herbs and supplements can restore your endocrine system, support your body, and give your mind what it needs. Jovanka describes how a number of specific adaptogenic herbs can help support and sustain your self-care rituals. What can support you on your path to self-care and wellness? Share your thoughts with me in the comments section of the episode page. Quotes: “People need to start understanding that they are the experts in their body. The person you look at in the mirror every morning is the expert of you.” [11:19] “A lot of us, especially women, are very generous with our time and energy, but we don't want to receive. Nothing could be more detrimental. We have to learn that the act of receiving is also an act of generosity.” [21:27] “So you find some alternative solutions and, in combination with what your doctor recommends, there is no need for us to struggle through a lot of these hormonal changes.” [29:30] “We are part of mother nature and we need to reconnect with it. It's critical to our health and wellbeing.” [33:50] In This Episode Understanding that you are the expert of your own body and advocating for what you need for it [6:30] Reclaiming what fulfills you after removing what doesn't [15:30] How adaptogenic plants can help us adapt and reclaim our wellness [22:30] Why a connection with nature is an integral part of wellness [31:15] Resources Mentioned: Use Promo Code ‘podcast' for 10% off your order at the Essentially Whole Store Here Jovanka Ciares' Website Follow Jovanka on Facebook | YouTube | Instagram | Linkedin | Twitter The Reclaiming Wellness Book Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative

Today, I'm joined by the Founding Principal at Creative Urban Alchemy, Ifeoma Ebo. Ifeoma is a Brooklyn native with a background in architecture, urban planning, real estate development, and environmental sustainability. In our conversation, we dive into the details of her latest project, The Perfect New York Street, which is a modern take on the streetscape of Third Avenue between 33rd and 34th Street. She walks us through what people might see, hear and feel when walking through this re-crafted space, and highlights the ripple effect it can have on the local economy and neighborhood safety. Ifeoma and I discuss the large-scale focus on equity and infrastructure in various global and domestic cities, with a particular focus on New York City. There's a movement towards how we're reconfiguring cities in the public realm to address damaging practices, such as redlining, in city development. Ifeoma has a unique perspective on the intertwined issues of sustainability, criminal justice reform, and housing affordability due to her upbringing between Brooklyn and her mother's village in Nigeria, as well as her studies at Cornell University and MIT. We talk about the design challenges that cities across the population spectrum are facing to make streets efficient for vehicles, productive for businesses, and accessible for residents. I get Ifeoma's take al fresco dining on city sidewalks and ideas for how that experience can be improved. We also touch on where funding is typically sourced from for urban transformations and the challenges with maintenance and operations in the public realm. About the Guest:Ifeoma Ebo is the Founding Principal at Creative Urban Alchemy, a NYC-based studio that specializes in strategies and frameworks for design, engagement and spatial planning in the areas of architecture, urban planning, real estate development and environmental sustainability. Ifeoma teaches at the graduate level at Columbia University and Syracuse University, and has taught at Cornell University and the University of Cape Town.

Yasmin on mental health stigmas: “As black students and as black women, we're taught that we need to be better than our white counterparts. We need to be resilient and strong. We need to be everything they are as far as grades, AND some. We can never show any signs of weakness. And I think that's where that stigma comes along with mental health, and I think the first step is a willingness to speak openly about our struggles.”Yasmin Bellew is the president of Alpha Phi Omega, Cornell's largest service fraternity, but she's also a member of pre-law organizations KAPi and Black Ivy. Listen to her conversation with Daniel James II about growing up in California's Central Valley, the impact of her black women mentors, the inaccessibility of therapy for people of color, the difference between structural reform and victim advocacy in the criminal justice and incarceration systems, and so much more.Catch Black Voices on the Hill each Friday @2pm on WVBR 93.5 FM. wvbr.com/blackvoicesInstagram: @blackvoicesonthehill BVH is now on TWITTER! @BVHCornellMusic provided by OZSOUND.
