Join us for a dive into the power of essential oils in our daily lives. The interest in essential oils is rapidly on the rise according to Google Trends. The trend line is fascinating. Why? What makes essential oils so sought after? They work! Organixx carries a line of organic and pure essential oils. Today we will share the top 3 uses of the top single essential oils in our line.   Lavender Lavender oil is believed to have antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. We've all heard by now that lavender promotes deeper sleep, but did you know…   There's promising research for breast health too. 2014 Iranian research published in the journal Nutrition and Cancer found that lavender oil kills breast cancer cells but leaves healthy cells unharmed. It's important to note that this study was on cells in a petri dish, not on humans. The researchers concluded that: “L. angustifolia has cytotoxic and apoptotic effects in HeLa and MCF-7 cell lines, and apoptosis is proposed as the possible mechanism of action.”1 Stops the itch and burn of insect bites. Even fire ants! Put a drop of lavender oil on a bee sting, mosquito, or other bug bite to stop pain, itching, and reduce swelling. Reapply as necessary. Lavender oil works really well for this, especially if applied immediately. Use it as a flavor booster. Add a drop of high-quality lavender oil suitable for consumption to brownie batter, chocolate icing, cookie dough, dessert recipes, raw chocolate, or even salad dressings. It's absolutely delicious.   Is Lavender Oil Safe? Using diluted lavender oil topically or in aromatherapy is generally considered safe for most adults but may not be recommended for children. Applying pure lavender oil to your skin (especially open wounds) may also cause irritation, so we recommend infusing it with a carrier oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. Dissolving it in water also works.   Be careful not to rub lavender oil in your eyes and mucous membranes. If this happens, wash it out immediately. Lavender oil may also cause allergic reactions in people with unusually sensitive skin, so do a spot test before using it. Simply apply a drop of lavender oil to your arm and see if any reaction occurs.   The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) also warns against using lavender oil when taking medications like barbiturates, benzodiazepines and chloral hydrate, as it may increase their sedative effects and cause extreme drowsiness and sleepiness.     Tea Tree (Melaleuca) This versatile oil possesses antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antifungal properties.   Due to its potent anti-inflammatory benefits, tea tree oil helps to relieve inflammatory skin conditions, especially eczema and psoriasis. Dilute as necessary and apply to affected area two to three times daily. Tea tree oil has long been used as a natural bug repellent by native Australian aboriginal people. Chinese research in 2016 found tea tree to be effective against the cereal weevil, Sitophilus zeamais.3 The cereal weevil is considered to be an extremely destructive pest to stored cereals all over the world. Tea tree also helps to relieve the pain, itching, and inflammation of insect bites. If it's an extra-hot day and your deodorant has failed, apply again, but this time with a drop or two of tea tree oil to help kill bacteria. Tea tree oil's potent antibacterial properties are well proven with dozens of research studies.   Is Tea Tree Oil Safe? The answer is yes, as long as it is applied topically in appropriate doses and NOT swallowed. This oil may irritate your skin, especially if used for the first time. We recommend starting with low concentrations until you figure out your tolerance. Determine if you have an allergy to tea tree oil before using it by doing a skin test — apply a small amount to your inner arm to see if any reaction such as a rash or hives occurs.   The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) recommends avoiding oxidized oil, which has been exposed to air, because it may help trigger allergies more than fresh tea tree oil.  Avoid using undiluted tea tree oil as well and use tea tree oil-infused products instead to reduce your risk of skin irritation.   Lemon The health benefits of lemon oil can be attributed to its stimulating, calming, astringent, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant and antifungal properties. *Important to note: Lemon essential oil can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight. Lemon oil has a balancing effect on the oil glands of the scalp. Massage a drop or two of lemon oil into your scalp before you go to bed at night. Wash it out in the morning. Done over a period of weeks, you will notice much less oily hair. It will make your pillow smell nice and fresh too! Diffuse lemon oil to help kill airborne bacteria. Research carried out by Dr. Jean Valnet (co-author of the book The Practice of Aromatherapy: A Classic Compendium of Plant Medicines and Their Healing Properties) shows that diffused lemon oil can rapidly kill off the bacteria that causes meningococcal infections, typhoid fever, staph infections, pneumonia, diphtheria, and tuberculosis. Several essential oils are haemostatic, i.e. they help to stop bleeding by speeding up the coagulation of the blood. The most useful of these is oil of Lemon, though Geranium and Rose have similar, though less powerful, effects.   Is Lemon Oil Safe? It is advisable not to use lemon oil without diluting it first, as it can irritate skin. It must be used with a carrier oil for direct application to the skin. Effective carrier oils include coconut oil, olive oil and jojoba oil.   There are findings showing that lemon oil may promote photosensitivity, which increases your sensitivity to the sun and may lead to sunburn and uneven darkening of the skin. We also recommend you avoid applying lemon oil and other citrus oils to your skin when outdoors, as blistering may occur.   People with sensitivities should use essential oils with caution. Reactions can vary from person to person. Some may experience skin reactions, while some may have respiratory problems. Consult your physician first before use. Pregnant women and children should also see a doctor before applying lemon oil.   Peppermint According to a review conducted by the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University, peppermint has significant antimicrobial and antiviral activities. It also works as a strong antioxidant, displays anti-tumor actions in lab studies, shows anti-allergenic potential and pain-killing effects, helps to relax the gastrointestinal tract and may be chemopreventive.4   Note: Chemoprevention is the use of a medication, vitamin or supplement to stop cancer from happening. This is most often used for people who have a high risk of developing cancer. The high menthol content of peppermint makes it great for cooling off during hot flashes. At the first sign of a hot flash developing, place a drop at the back of the neck, at the base of the skull, or on the collarbones. Breathe it in. This has an instant cooling and calming effect. Peppermint oil not only relaxes skeletal muscles, it also helps to relax the muscles of the respiratory system. Inhaling the scent of peppermint helps to relieve congestion due to allergies and counteract the effects of pollen. Especially powerful when combined with lavender and lemon to ease seasonal allergies! Peppermint oil is superb for helping to relieve indigestion and heartburn. Put just one drop of peppermint oil into a glass of water and drink. It works much more quickly than peppermint tea due to the concentrated nature of peppermint oil. If it's too strong for you, just dilute it and rub it across the tummy.   Is Peppermint Oil Safe? Peppermint oil is safe in low amounts in most adults, but it can trigger side effects in people with sensitivities. It is important for the following individuals to either avoid using this essential oil or to use it carefully only with the help of a healthcare professional. Pregnant and nursing women — Peppermint oil or other similar products may have emmenagogue and abortifacient effects, so it would be wise not to use peppermint oil without your physician's approval. Infants and children 7 years old and younger — Peppermint oil must not be used undiluted because there isn't enough information regarding its safety for them. Diabetics — Using peppermint oil may raise your risk of low blood sugar levels or hypoglycemia. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and hiatal hernia patients — Peppermint can relax the sphincter between the stomach and esophagus, and cause acid to move up to the esophagus. People with gallbladder problems — Peppermint oil may cause gallbladder inflammation; those diagnosed with gallstones should consult a physician before using peppermint oil. People taking antacids — These drugs can cause peppermint oil capsules to break down easily, increasing the risk of heartburn.   Eucalyptus The healing benefits of Eucalyptus Oil can be attributed to its anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, decongestant, deodorant, and antiseptic qualities, among other valuable properties.   Eucalyptus oil is known to be a vasodilator, meaning it dilates, or opens, blood vessels. In 1994, Austrian researchers discovered that eucalyptol, a phytochemical in eucalyptus oil (also known as 1,8-cineol) improved global blood flow to the brain, after only 20 minutes of inhalation.9 A newer study released in 2016 by Korean researchers found that eucalyptol is also able to pass through the blood-brain barrier. This research also found eucalyptol's high antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to be helpful in the management of chronic conditions such as respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and degenerative nerve and brain diseases. Some studies have shown that several different species of eucalyptus may help to reduce blood sugar levels in mice. Also because eucalyptus is such an excellent vasodilator, the entire body benefits from this increase in blood circulation. To help combat poor blood circulation, dilute eucalyptus oil and massage it into the legs, hands, and feet as needed. Eucalyptus oil's anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and anti-phlegm properties work very quickly to open congested airways. Make a steam inhalation by boiling two cups of water, pour it into a large bowl, then let it cool for five minutes. Add a drop or two of eucalyptus oil. Then create a tent from a small towel draped over your head. Place your face over the bowl and carefully breathe in the vapor until you get some relief. This should only take a couple of minutes. This is great for bronchitis, head colds, chest colds, and asthma.   Is Eucalyptus Oil Safe? Essential oils like eucalyptus oil are generally safe to use, but with specific precautions. Before using it, consult a holistic doctor to see if your condition would allow you to do so, and undergo an allergen patch test to check for possible allergic reactions and lower your risk for developing side effects. In general, adults should not take eucalyptus oil orally except under a doctor's supervision, and this oil mustn't be given to children, especially those under 2 years old.   While eucalyptus oil is generally safe when applied to adult skin, refrain from applying the oil, salve or chest rub on the face or nose of baby because of its potential side effects. Lastly, pregnant and breastfeeding women should also avoid using the oil as evidence is lacking regarding its safety for these groups of women.     Frankincense – The KING of essential oils! Frankincense essential oil is distilled from the resin of the Boswellia tree that grows in many regions within northern Africa and the Middle East. Oman, Somalia, and Ethiopia are the most prominent suppliers today.   Research shows that the natural plant chemical constituents in frankincense oil stimulate the immune system.2   But it supports so much more… Frankincense is a powerful health support for respiratory problems such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, and bronchitis. It even helps when suffering from laryngitis. Diffuse it into the room where you intend to spend some time. For best results, use an ultrasonic cool mist diffuser. Never heat essential oils because heating them diminishes their therapeutic effects. Whether your skin is dry and mature or oily and blotched with blemishes, frankincense oil has wonderful balancing qualities. It helps to reduce lines and wrinkles by tightening and toning skin, accelerates the healing of blemishes, skin ulcers and wounds, and stimulates cell regeneration. For anti-aging benefits, put several drops into your favorite night time moisturizer. For acne and blemishes, apply it neat directly on the problem area, unless you have very sensitive skin, then dilute. Use frankincense oil to help calm and center the mind, to promote spiritual awareness, and to cultivate a sense of inner peace while meditating. Frankincense contains compounds known as sesquiterpenes which work directly on the limbic system of the brain, the center of memory and emotions. Frankincense is calming, grounding, and centering to the nervous system. Diffuse it into your room, or just inhale directly from the bottle at the start of your meditation.   Is Frankincense Oil Safe? Yes, frankincense oil is generally safe. Just make sure to undergo an allergen patch test before applying frankincense oil topically to see if you have any sensitivity to this oil.   For some groups of people, frankincense oil isn't recommended, since it may trigger adverse reactions. If you're pregnant or nursing, avoid using frankincense oil because it may trigger contractions, prompt menstruation and lead to a miscarriage. As for children, there is very limited information regarding the potential use of this oil for this age group, so if you're a parent or guardian, do not let them use this oil.   How to Dilute Essential Oils Although essential oils can be used neat (undiluted) in many cases, it is best (and more economical) to dilute essential oils before applying them to the body. Add a drop or two of your chosen oil to one-half to one teaspoonful of an organic carrier oil such as coconut, almond, hemp, or jojoba.   If using with children or pets, use even less essential oil because their smaller bodies cannot tolerate an adult dose. It's best to consult a qualified aromatherapist before using essential oils with pets or children.    A Final Word About Quality Always choose high quality, organic essential oil that has been properly distilled so that its phytochemical content is not compromised. Look for bottles labeled 100% pure oil and beware of cheap oils that may be diluted with potentially toxic chemical ingredients.   In addition to the powerful essential oils we touched on today, Organixx carries 6 more beautiful single oils just as powerful and effective to help you maintain optimal health; Orange, Grapefruit, Oregano, Geranium Rose, Rosemary, and Clove.

On this episode of Rightly Dividing, we are walking in the footsteps of our apostle, Paul, who tells us to follow him on the path after salvation on the road to sanctification that leads to the Judgment Seat of Christ, and will determine who gets to 'rule and reign' and who does not. Salvation is a free gift, sanctification is not, it is works and lots of it. Being a witness for Jesus Christ down here will cost you something, and it's supposed to. Paul has plenty to say about this subject, but more importantly than telling us, Paul also models it for us while he says 'be ye followers of me'. On this episode of 'Rightly Dividing', we present to you the hard truth of what it takes to earn crowns at the Judgement Seat, and what you have to do to be able to 'rule and reign' with King Jesus in the Millennium."It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself." 2 Timothy 2:11-13 (KJB) As born again Christians living in the Church Age, we are called to 'fight the good fight' against the world, the flesh and the Devil down here, as Paul shows us that will directly impact whether or not we get to 'rule and reign' with Jesus Christ in the Millennium. Why? Because it looks like that fight the good fight is directly related out our inheritance, not to our salvation. Am I saying that they may be some saved, born again Christians who are denied ruling and reigning with King Jesus during that time? Yep. https://www.nowtheendbegins.com/nteb-radio-bible-study-fighting-good-fight-of-faith-now-will-determine-rule-reign-with-king-jesus-millennium/

Full show notes at www.LearningLeader.com Twitter/IG: @RyanHawk12  https://twitter.com/RyanHawk12 Robert Greene has written 7 international best-selling books focused on strategy, power, and seduction, including The 48 Laws of Power, Mastery, The Laws of Human Nature, and most recently, The Daily Laws. Notes: What matters is not education or money, but your persistence and the intensity of your desire to learn; that failures, mistakes, and conflicts are often the best education of all; and how true creativity and mastery emerge from all this. Adapt your inclinations. Avoid having rigid goals and dreams. Change is the law. Find inspiration from your heroes. Are there people whose work affects you in a powerful way? Analyze this and use them as models. Trust the process. Time is the essential ingredient of mastery. Use it to your advantage. What The mentor needs - Find a master to apprentice under, but instead of thinking about how much they can give you, think about how you can help them with their work. Learn by Doing -- The brain is designed to learn through constant repetition and active, hands-on involvement. Through such practice and persistence, any skill can be mastered. Master your emotional responses - displaying anger and emotion are signs of weakness; you cannot control yourself, so how can you control anything? Always Say Less Than Necessary. When you are trying to impress people with words, the more you say, the more common you appear, and the less in control. Avoid the false alliance -- Cultivate real allies. No one can get far in life without allies. The trick is to recognize the difference between false allies and real ones. A false alliance is created out of an immediate emotional need. A real alliance is formed out of mutual self-interest, each side supplying what the other cannot get alone. Despise the Free lunch - Learn to pay and to pay well. -- I find that the best clients don't haggle on price, they pay immediately and they are easy to work with. The clients who want to fight about every last dollar always end up being the most difficult to work with. “There is no cutting corners with excellence. It is often wise to pay full price.” Judge people on their behavior, not on their words - What you want is a picture of a person's character over time. Restrain from the natural tendency to judge right away, and let the passage of time reveal more about who people are. Don't mistake extra conviction for truth - When people try to explain their ideas with so much exaggerated energy, or defend themselves with an intent level of denial, that is precisely when you should raise your antennae. Determine the strength of people's character - In gauging strength or weakness, look at how people handle stressful moments and responsibility. Look at their patterns: what have they actually completed or accomplished? Be a source of pleasure - No one wants to hear about your problems and troubles. An energetic presence is more charming than lethargy. Being lighthearted and fun is always more charming than being serious and critical. Leave people with a feeling - Keep your eyes on the aftermath of any encounter. Think more of the feeling you leave people with -- a feeling that might translate into a desire to see more of you. Transform yourself into a deep listener - It will provide you the most invaluable lessons about human psychology. The secret to this: finding other people endlessly fascinating. Do Not let success intoxicate you - after any kind of success, analyze the components. See the element of luck that is inevitably there, as well as the role that other people, including mentors, played in your good fortune. Increase your reaction time - the longer you can resist reacting, the more mental space you have for actual reflection, and the stronger your mind will become. Alive time or dead time - Never waste a minute. Make today your own -- whether you're stuck in traffic, sick in bed, or working long hours. You are renting just about everything in your life. The only thing you own is your time. Make the most of it.

Today - the story of Wenatchee Valley renters and their struggle to meet rising prices. A growing number of individuals are experiencing rent increases across Washington and the country at a time when pandemic restrictions have strained both renters and apartment owners. Meanwhile, vacancy rates in the Wenatchee area hover around 1%, which at least one expert said should spur more apartment development. But until that happens, double-digit rent increases have become the norm, forcing tough decisions on renters. Also, fire officials have determined the Rooster Comb Fire that scorched a Wenatchee hillside in August was caused by a person cutting a metal culvert.

It's Casual Friday! Sam and Emma host Ryan Grim, Washington D.C. Bureau Chief at The Intercept, to wrap up the week in news. Emma, Sam, and Ryan dive right into yesterday's developments with infrastructure and reconciliation as progressives successfully prevent the vote on the tiny infrastructure plus bill, re-centering the conversation back to the fact that Joe Manchin and the moderates are backing out of a preexisting agreement, and leveraging the self-importance of the Senate. They also touch on the role of Kyrsten Sinema's daring refusal to play by Senate rules by… being successfully lobbied by those against the budget bill, as well as looking at the positive signs in terms of her still acting in good faith in negotiations. Turning back to progressives, Grim discusses how they finally came to use their leverage after decades of taking half-assed deals, looking at how the strength of the CPC, particularly in alliance with swing-seat Dems, has changed drastically since the Obama years, and he, Sam, and Emma take on the differences between progressives leveraging their power on this as opposed to the movement to Force the Vote on M4A. They wrap up the interview by looking at how things might move forward, with the debt ceiling vote also hanging in the balance, before Emma and Sam admire the work of activists in pulling Manchin back down to Earth from “Almost Heaven.” And in the second half: Sam and Emma are joined by David Feldman of The David Feldman Show as they discuss his small-government, Ayn Randian approach to Marxism, the neediness of progressives in negotiations, and the intoxicating misogyny of Jimmy Dore. Plus, David gives a spiel on Bernie Sanders' overwhelming kielbasa. In the Fun Half, Sam and Emma also touch on the continued injustice of Steven Donzinger's case as the private lawsuit against him continues, Martha MacCallum reminds us that even kids have to make a living if they want to live, and Senator Blumenthal reminds Sam that he'll never lose his youth.

Swagger is such a powerful word, and yet it's frequently misconstrued.The way I see it, businesses, brands, and people with a certain level of swagger typically win.And who doesn't want to be a winner?But the question is, do you have that swagger that is infectious enough that attracts, amplifies, and activates people to become your customers, be part of your community, and serve as your extended branding, marketing, and sales teams?Swagger is imperative to win. Swagger separates you from the competition.Swagger makes you memorable. When you're memorable, you stay top of mind.But the key is to make sure you "keep that same energy" at every interaction point with a customer, fan, advocate, prospect, employee, client, etc.This episode breaks down the importance of swagger and how it is essential to the growth and development of your business, positioning, power, community, and ultimately your business or brand legacy.This is episode 35, #ReleaseTheSwagger #####• Rate & Review iDigress: RateThisPodcast.com/iDigress• Get Strategy Solutions & Services: GrowWithTroy.com• Follow Troy on Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, & Clubhouse @FindTroy

Install CentOS or Debian on a Raspberry Pi. I'm using CentOS, but I'll admit that Debian is the easier option by far. Do this on 3 separate Pi units, each with the same specs. Set hostnames You must have unique hostnames for each Pi. Without unique hostnames, your cluster cannot function. There are several "kinds" of hostnames, so to avoid confusion I change all of them. I use a simple naming scheme: k for "kubernetes" + an integer, starting at 100 + c for "cluster": $ sudo hostname k100c $ sudo sysctl kernel.hostname=k100c $ sudo hostnamectl set-hostname k100c $ sudo reboot Do this for each Pi. At a minimum, you end up with Pi computers named k100c, k101c, and k102c. Set verbose prompts When working with many different hosts, it's helpful to have a very verbose prompt as a constant reminder of which host you're connected to. Add this to the ~/.bashrc of each Pi: export PS1='[33[1;32m]! d t h:w n% [33[00m]' Install a Pi finder script Install an LED blinker so you can find a specific Pi when you need one. This brilliant script is by Chris Collins for his article Use this script to find a Raspberry Pi on your network, which explains how to run it. #!/bin/bash set -o errexit set -o nounset trap quit INT TERM COUNT=0 LED="/sys/class/leds/led0" if ! [ $(id -u) = 0 ]; then echo "Must be run as root." exit 1 fi if [[ ! -d $LED ]] then echo "Could not find an LED at ${LED}" echo "Perhaps try '/sys/class/leds/ACT'?" exit 1 fi function quit() { echo mmc0 >"${LED}/trigger" } echo -n "Blinking Raspberry Pi's LED - press CTRL-C to quit" echo none >"${LED}/trigger" while true do let "COUNT=COUNT+1" if [[ $COUNT -lt 30 ]] then echo 1 >"${LED}/brightness" sleep 1 echo 0 >"${LED}/brightness" sleep 1 else quit break fi done Install K3s on your control plane K3s is Kubernetes for IoT and Edge computing. It's the easiest, cleanest, and most serious method of getting Kubernetes on an ARM device. You can try other solutions (Microk8s, Minikube, OXD, and so on), but the best support comes from k3s. First, you must install k3s on one Pi. You can use any of your Pi units for this, but I use host k100c because it's the first in the sequence, so it feels logical. [k100c]$ curl -sfL https://get.k3s.io -o install_k3s.sh [k100c]$ chmod 700 install_k3s.sh Read the script to ensure that it seems to do what you expect, and then: [k100c]$ ./install_k3s.sh After installation, you're prompted to add some arguments to your bootloader. Open /boot/cmdline.txt in a text editor and add cgroup_memory=1 cgroup_enable=memory to the end of it. console=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait cgroup_memory=1 cgroup_enable=memory Reboot: [k100c]$ sudo reboot Once the Pi is back up, verify that your node is ready: [k100c]$ k3s kubectl get node NAME STATUS ROLES AGE k100c Ready control-plane,master 42s This Pi is the "control plane", meaning it's the Pi that you use to administer your cluster. Get the node token Obtain the control plane's node token. Thanks to k3s, this is autogenerated for you. If you not using k3s, then you must generate your own with the command kubeadm token generate. Assuming you're using k3s: $ MYTOKEN=$(sudo cat /var/lib/rancher/k3s/server/node-token) $ echo $MYTOKEN K76351a1c2497d907ba7a156028567e0ccc26b82d2174161c564152ab3add6cc3fb::server:808771e4e695e3e3465ed9a14a0581da Add your control plane hostname to your hosts file If you know how to manage local DNS settings, then you can use a DNS service to identify the hosts in your cluster. Otherwise, the easy way to make your nodes know how to find your control plane is to add the control plane's hostname and IP address to the /etc/hosts file on each node. This also assumes that your control plane has a static local IP address. For example, this is the host file of k101c and k102c: 127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6 10.0.1.100 k100c Verify that each host can find the control plane. For example: [k101c]$ ping -c 1 k100c || echo "fail" [k101c] Add nodes to your cluster Now you can add the other Pi computers to your cluster. On each Pi you want to turn into a computer node, install k3s with the control plane and token as environment variables. On my second Pi, for instance, I run this command: [k101c]$ curl -sfL https://get.k3s.io | K3S_URL=https://k100c:6443 K3S_TOKEN="${MYTOKEN}" sh - On my third and final Pi, I run the same command: [k102c]$ curl -sfL https://get.k3s.io | K3S_URL=https://k100c:6443 K3S_TOKEN="${MYTOKEN}" sh - Verify your cluster On your control plane, verify that all nodes are active: % k3s kubectl get nodes NAME STATUS ROLES AGE VERSION k100c Ready control-plane,master 2d23h v1.21.4+k3s1 k102c Ready 21h v1.21.4+k3s1 k101c Ready 20h v1.21.4+k3s1 It can take a few minutes for the control plane to discover all nodes, so wait a little while and try the command again if you don't see all nodes right away. You now have a Kubernetes cluster running. It isn't doing anything yet, but it's a functional Kubernetes cluster. That means you have a tiny Pi-based cloud entirely at your disposal. You can use it to learn about Kubernetes, cloud architecture, cloud-native development, and so on. Create a deployment and some pods Now that you have a Kubernetes cluster running, you can start running applications in containers. That's what Kubernetes does: it orchestrates and manages containers. You've may have heard of containers. I did an episode about Docker containers in episode 1522 of HPR, you can go listen to that if you need to catch up. I've also done an episode on LXC in episode 371 of my own show, GNU World Order. There's a sequence to launching containers within Kubernetes, a specific order you need to follow, because there are lots of moving parts and those parts have to reference each other. Generally, the hierarchy is this: namespaces are the "project spaces" of kubernetes. I cover this in great detail in my GNU World Order episode 13x39. create a deployment that manage pods. pods are groups of containers. it helps your cluster scale on demand. services are front-ends to deployments. A deployment can be running quietly in the background and it'll never see the light of day without a service pointing to it. traffic, or exposure. A service is only available to your cluster until you expose it to the outside world with an external IP address. First, create a namespace for your test application to use. [k100c]$ k3s kubectl create namespace ktest The Kubernetes project provides an example Nginx deployment definition. Read through it to get an idea of what it does. It looks something like this: apiVersion: apps/v1 kind: Deployment metadata: name: nginx-deployment spec: selector: matchLabels: app: nginx replicas: 2 # tells deployment to run 2 pods matching the template template: metadata: labels: app: nginx spec: containers: - name: nginx image: nginx:1.14.2 ports: - containerPort: 80 This creates metadata named nginx-deployment. It also creates a label called app, and sets it to nginx. This metadata is used as selectors for pods and services later. For now, create a deployment using the example: [k100c]$ k3s kubectl --namespace ktest create -f https://k8s.io/examples/application/deployment.yaml Confirm that the deployment has generated and started new pods: [k100c]$ k3s kubectl --namespace ktest get all 3s kubectl --namespace ktest get all NAME READY pod/nginx-deployment-66b[...] 1/1 Running pod/nginx-deployment-66b[...] 1/1 Running NAME READY deployment.apps/nginx-deployment 2/2 NAME replicaset.apps/nginx-deployment-66b6c48dd5 See the pods labelled with app: nginx: [k100c]$ k3s kubectl --namespace ktest get pods -l app=nginx NAME READY STATUS nginx-deployment-66b6c48dd5-9vgg8 1/1 Running nginx-deployment-66b6c48dd5-prgrf 1/1 Running nginx-deployment-66b6c48dd5-cqpgf 1/1 Running Create a service Now you must connect the Nginx instance with a Kubernetes Service. The selector element is set to nginx to match pods running the nginx application. Without this selector, there would be nothing to correlate your service with the pods running the application you want to serve. [k100c]$ cat

Change is difficult. When situations change, we enter the unknown. We may fear losing opportunities or making the wrong choice. Today's guest wants us to embrace change and approach it with an open mind. In this way, curiosity, the opposite of dread, can lead us to greater things.   When considering a change: Examine your limiting beliefs Learn from others who have gone before you Determine your priorities Ask for help from your support group   About Dr. Marion McCrary Dr. Marion McCrary is an experienced primary care internal medicine physician and a national board-certified integrative health and wellness coach. She is passionate about physician wellness and serves as the Well-Being Champion for the NC chapter of the American College of Physicians.  Dr. McCrary is also a coach for ACP and AMWA leadership programs. Her newest role is the Associate Director for GME Coaching at her home institution and she is looking forward to guiding residents and fellows in their professional and personal development. She is also a writer and a podcaster. She is one of the co-creators and hosts of the ResetMD podcast where physicians have conversations about what has sustained their well-being.   Self-Examination is Part of Making Changes in Your Life In this episode, Dr. McCrary describes how to break away from the daily grind. These aren't decisions to be made on a whim. It takes time to examine limiting beliefs and understand how to move forward. Big changes require big introspection. Self-reflection is necessary to move forward in an informed way. When embraced with a sense of curiosity, transitions are an invaluable time to learn about yourself. You'll see just how much control over your circumstances you really have. It's also great for your confidence to see that you can take risks and turn out okay.   Change as a Solution to Burnout One of the instigators of change is burnout. We discuss common causes of burnout. When you say yes to too much or lack the support you need, exhaustion is a natural consequence. Dr. McCrary wants us to fight burnout by instituting whatever control we have. Take control over your thoughts and time. Set boundaries, even when it involves tough conversations.  Reflect and take stock of your priorities. Once you know these, you can live according to them. Don't let a day go by without doing what you want with it.   Homework for Women Physicians What is a big change are you considering? How can you take stock of your priorities to move forward with it?

Business Lunch
Taking a Project from Start to Finish with Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss

Business Lunch

Starting a new project is easy; finishing what you start is crucial.   If you want your business to grow and scale, you can't just do one thing. But you also can't just have a bunch of great ideas, start a bunch of projects, and never finish them. 80% done is zero.    In today's episode of Business Lunch, co-hosts Roland Frasier and Ryan Deiss take an honest look at some of the struggles they've had lately in their multiple businesses. They talk through some challenges at DigitalMarketer in particular. Things haven't been getting completed at the speed, frequency, and level of excellence they want them to.    The good news? They've had some hard discussions with their leadership team, and they've finally solved this challenge. But it has involved relearning lessons they'd already learned from past mistakes. If this happens to you too, you're not alone.    One Team Takes One Thing at a Time from Beginning to End It's a classic mistake—trying to do too much with just one person or one team, stretching people too thin. This temptation is always present, but it never works out.    Roland and Ryan's longtime friend, Carl White, talks about half-built bridges. Instead of building a whole bridge, you keep starting bridges. You put in tons of labor, and it's worth nothing, because nothing is finished. It's not that, if you get it to 80%, you'll get 80% of the results. Nope. You'll get zero results.    They're not saying your business can't do more than one thing at once. In fact, you have to, if you want to grow and scale. The iPhone doesn't go away while Apple is developing the iWatch. But you have to acknowledge that one team can only take one thing from beginning to end at a time. When you have a team working hard on something, you can't ask, “Hey, can you do this thing too?” Whatever gains you get on the new thing, you're going to lose on the first thing.   What Roland and Ryan did to solve this was very simple. Each team stopped doing everything but this one thing. They tackled until it was done and it was great. Every piece of it. Then they moved on to the next thing.    So how do they solve for the long term? How do you start something new and keep the other things running?   Don't Ask a 0 to 1 Person to Do a 1 to 10 Job You have to know the difference between a “0 to 1” person and a “1 to 10” person. These are two totally different personality types. A 0 to 1 person takes a project from start to finish, but then they're done, and a 1 to 10 person takes it from there. They run it, manage it, optimize it. And the 0 to 1 person starts something new.    One mistake they've made in the past: asking a 0 to 1 person to do 1 to 10 job in their spare time. A second mistake: giving the 0 to 1 person a team and hoping they can do both the launching of new projects and the maintenance of old projects. You wind up building a team of people who aren't as talented as the 0 to 1 person. And, even more importantly, you're asking a 0 to 1 person to be a manager. That's not in their wheelhouse. They want to get things done quickly and correctly, not take the time to teach other people how to do it.   The bottom line: if you want to do multiple things at the same time, you need multiple 0 to 1 people.    What This Looks Like in Real Life At DigitalMarketer, one of their portfolio companies, they've had marketing and products centralized for the longest time at the holding company level. Now that they've hired a general manager, they can begin to build a marketing team made up of “1 to 10” people.    They've also identified this at Scalable as something they need to fix. Entrepreneur founders are often 0 to 1 people who burn out or don't have the skillset to go to the next place or continue at a subscale level. The whole idea behind Scalable is that the tools you need to be the 1 to 10 entrepreneur are available, and growth is the 0 to 1. Scalable has all the tools, the operating systems, but they need the right people to optimize those tools.   They've been good about implementing systems, but they have either handed over systems to people who were too low-level to run them, or they've handed them over to 0 to 1 people instead of 1 to 10 people. They often tried to hire internally, but it's not worth it if they're not truly a fit for the job. Put an F16 pilot in an F16, not a helicopter.    A big part of the Scalable operating system is quarterly planning. Part of that quarterly planning process is figuring out which projects they're going to greenlight to help them close the gap between where they are and their growth goals.    Just about anything they want to do—launching a product, rolling out a new marketing campaign, a new sales funnel—takes one, two, or three weeks. When things have taken longer, it's because they did a start/stop. In each given quarter, a 0 to 1 team can do 3-5 new things. Make sure those things you pick are great, not just good.   In your quarterly planning meeting, decide on the scope of the project. Determine what “done 100%” looks like and map out each little component part. Then everybody works on their individual tasks, comes back, and reviews.   Finish your half-built bridges. Increase both actual completion of each project from 80% to done AND the quality from good to great. And make sure you have the right people for each phase of the job. This will make a huge difference in your business.   PARTNERS: Scalable Impact Live (November 2-3, 2021)

Violent Mind: The 1976 Psychological Assessment of Ted Bundy Violent Mind: The 1976 Psychological Assessment of Ted Bundy Ted Bundy was convicted of Aggravated Kidnapping. But was he violent? In March 1976, Ted Bundy was convicted of the aggravated kidnapping of a young woman near Salt Lake City, Utah. Bundy had not been accused or convicted of any violent crime except this one. No one knew then how many women Bundy had murdered, and many thought him incapable of doing so. Dr. Al Carlisle was part of the 90-Day Diagnostic team at the Utah State Prison when Bundy was sent there after the trial. Dr. Carlisle's assignment was specific: Determine to the best of his ability, without being biased by any of the reports previously done, whether Ted Bundy had a violent personality. The judge would use this information in deciding whether Bundy should serve time or be released on probation. In Violent Mind: The 1976 Psychological Assessment of Ted Bundy,Dr. Carlisle takes the reader step by step through this previously-unpublished evaluation process, and shows how he concluded that Bundy had the capacity to commit aggravated kidnapping, and perhaps much worse. Many books have been written about Bundy, but rarely have we had the opportunity to understand the inner workings of his mind. Now, Dr. Al Carlisle shares the step-by-step psychological assessment process regarding how he determined that Bundy was a very violent person and would likely continue to kill victims if he was set free. The assessments that led to Bundy's incarceration are being published for the first time. Violent Mind contains never-before-seen interviews with Ted Bundy and those who knew him, including a letter Bundy wrote to Dr. Carlisle that has been locked away for more than 40 years. 3 years ago #1976, #assessment, #bundy, #ed, #mind:, #of, #opperman, #psychological, #report, #ted, #the, #violent
