It talks about daughters being a liability, divorcing your wife, and the wickedness of man being better than the righteousness of women. 14:25 – Since there were bishops from the East who became popes before the East-West schism, isn't that an argument in favor of the papacy? 18:10 – How should I talk to my friend about the hierarchical structures of the Orthodox and Catholic Churches? He seems to be leaning more Orthodox on this point. 29:00 – In my theology class we were talking about whether a traditional family (only father works + stay-at-home mom) or a non-traditional family lifestyle (mother works, or both parents work) is more beneficial.

Dr. Johanna Mellis, a former D1 swimmer and current history professor at Ursinus College, joins Lera for a lively conversation on the history of sports in Hungary during the Cold War. They also touch on the Olympics (past and present), sport diplomacy, and the development of competitive sports on an international plane. For a great visual timeline of Sport in the Cold War and further related resources and collections, visit the Wilson's Center digital archive: https://digitalarchive.wilsoncenter.org/theme/sport-in-the-cold-war ABOUT THE GUEST https://www.ursinus.edu/live/image/scale/3x/gid/7/width/250/height/250/38576_171-Ursinus2021_copy.rev.1635790475.jpg Dr. Mellis is assistant professor in the history department at Ursinus College. She was a D1 swimmer at the College of Charleston from 2004-2008 and co-captain of the team from 2006-2008. She was the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) conference champion in the 400 Individual Medley in 2006, and a bronze medalist that year in the 200 butterfly. She later coached at High Tide Aquatics and Gator Swim Club in Gainesville, FL while getting her MA and PhD at the University of Florida. Dr. Mellis's research focuses on Cold War sport. Her manuscript, Changing the Global Game: Hungarian Athletes and International Sport During the Cold War, examines Hungarian sportspeople's interactions with the International Olympic Committee from 1948-1989. Changing the Global Game shows how Hungarian athletes, Socialist Hungarian state sport officials, and the IOC gradually realized by the 1960s that sporting cooperation with one another - and not East-West political clashes nor resistance - was the way to achieve their respective aims of sport success, career and financial stability, and political and institutional strength. Dr. Mellis is also a cohost of the End of Sport podcast with Drs. Nathan Kalman-Lamb and Derek Silva. They interview athletes, critical sports journalists, and fellow academics to explore all the ways that people use sport to harm others - i.e. through racist mascotry, the NCAA and higher ed's exploitation of Black and Brown college athletic workers, sexual abuse and harassment, transphobia, and more. Through the End of Sport (endofsport.com), she has co-authored pieces for public outlets such as The Chronicle of Higher Ed, The Guardian, Time, The Baffler, and more. She also has sole-authored pieces with The Washington Post and Arizona State University's Global Sport Matters.

RockerMike and Rob discuss the Sisters of Mercy. The Sisters of Mercy are an English rock band, formed in 1980 in Leeds.After achieving early underground fame there, the band had their commercial breakthrough in the mid-1980s and sustained it until the early 1990s, when they stopped releasing new recorded output in protest against their record company WEA. Currently, the band are a touring outfit only. The group has released three original studio albums: First and Last and Always (1985), Floodland (1987) and Vision Thing (1990). Each album was recorded by a different line-up; singer-songwriter Andrew Eldritch and the drum machine called Doktor Avalanche are the only points of continuity throughout. Eldritch and Avalanche were also involved in The Sisterhood, a side-project connected with Eldritch's dispute with former members. The Sisters of Mercy ceased recording activity in the early 1990s, when they went on strike against East West Records, whom they accused of incompetence and withholding royalties, and had pressured the group to release at least two more studio albums; instead, the label released the album Go Figure under the moniker SSV in 1997. Although the Sisters of Mercy were eventually released from their contract with East West, they have never been signed to another label nor released any new material, despite showcasing numerous new songs in their live sets. Former members of the group established the bands Ghost Dance and The Mission. http://www.the-sisters-of-mercy.com/ https://open.spotify.com/artist/4HxBVyHaUa60eCSsJWxwWR https://www.discogs.com/artist/83146-The-Sisters-Of-Mercy https://www.concertarchives.org/bands/the-sisters-of-mercy--2 Please follow us on Youtube,Facebook,Instagram,Twitter,Patreon and at www.gettinglumpedup.com https://linktr.ee/RobRossi Get your T-shirt at https://www.prowrestlingtees.com/gettinglumpedup And https://www.bonfire.com/store/getting-lumped-up/ https://app.hashtag.expert/?fpr=roberto-rossi80 https://dc2bfnt-peyeewd4slt50d2x1b.hop.clickbank.net https://8bcded2xph1jdsb8mqp8th3y0n.hop.clickbank.net/?cbpage=nb Subscribe to the channel and hit the like button --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rob-rossi/support https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/getting-lumped-up-with-rob-rossi/id1448899708 https://open.spotify.com/show/00ZWLZaYqQlJji1QSoEz7a https://www.patreon.com/Gettinglumpedup #musicproduction #musicvideo #musical #musiclover #musiclife #musician #musicians #musically #music #musicstudio #musicproducer #musicfestival --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/rob-rossi/support

Tom: It was a bit of learning curve from IG to 0x. A lot translates over but the token aspect changes how you think about product, it can be the growth mechanic, the same product but with different tokenomics can have a huge difference in outcome ⁃ Cobie: Even having a token as a defence mechanism is a requirement now ⁃ Tom: Prefer the method of building a great and sticky product then adding the token on top of that otherwise you run into leaky bucket theory once the incentives run out ⁃ Dislikes revenue to token holders early on, ideally it should be used to make the product better and grow but treasuries have gotten so big that teams probably don't know how to spend itAirdrops & Sybil Attacks ⁃ Divergence Ventures farmed 10% of RBN airdrop ⁃ Returned following being found out and the following drama ⁃ Tom farmed it personally long before the airdrop email, continued to farm after that point and so has since voluntarily returned all farmed RBN from his account ⁃ An individual exploiting via sybil isn't as bad as an investor that then also dumps day one ⁃ Teams are experimenting with different ways to achieve fair distribution but there's still a lot to work out, it's a really interesting design space ⁃ Need to hold people to a high standard to self-regulate in the industryTrends in the next 6-18months? ⁃ Product structure ⁃ Derivative products ⁃ DAOs & DAO toolingEthereum Scaling ⁃ ZK-rollup maximalist ⁃ For some applications and purposes even the rollup won't be cheap enough and so maybe there will be room for other chains ⁃ You can also rollup a rollup e.g. Mina.

Tom: Decentralising the L2 could rely on having a token and also it's a case of trying to protect against forking or a competitor ⁃ There will be a fee for L2s but unsure who will pay it, token holders, users, maybe the L1? ⁃ Solana has been surprising with the amount of developer activity happening there ⁃ Cobie: When chains are EVM compatible you get a lot of copy-paste projects to grab money over and over. Potentially means that the teams are less sticky, opportunity over legitimate drive. Solana is more novel, the product designs maybe aren't all novel but there's a lot of work there being done to make things sticky.

This year there are over 325 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.1 The prize has been awarded most years since 1901. Among the individuals who have won the prize are many who are worthy, such as Mother Theresa and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One of the groups to win was Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres in 1994 for their efforts toward peace in the Middle East. Of course, their efforts did not result in peace. A few times the Prize has been awarded to an organization such as the International Committee of the Red Cross. One interesting observation about the prize is this: at times it seems to be political. Of the US Presidents and Vice Presidents who have won, only Democrats have won since 1906. Ronald Reagan, who ended the Cold War, did not. Yet, Mikhail Gorbachev won the prize in 1990 for his role in changing East-West relations. One Republican did win in 1973, Henry Kissinger, along with Le Duc Tho, for negotiating the Vietnam cease-fire and US withdrawal.2 I guess President Nixon was too tainted by the Watergate scandal! In Matthew 5:9 Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” (NIV) Was Jesus talking about Nobel Peace Prize winners? Was he talking about negotiating the end of wars? Not exactly. This week we'll explore this Beatitude and what Jesus' meant by “peacemakers.” "THERE ARE 329 CANDIDATES FOR THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR 2021," The Nobel Peace Prize, The Norwegian Nobel Institute, headline on September 7,2021, https://www.nobelpeaceprize.org/."List of Nobel Peace Prize laureates," Wikipedia, last updated September 2, 2021, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nobel_Peace_Prize_laureates.

Samantha Besson Droit international des institutions Collège de France Année 2021-2022 Ivan Krastev - Conférencier invité - Cycle europe du Collège de France : L'angoisse du déclin. Démocratie, démographie et clivage Est-Ouest en Europe Democratization and Ethnic (De)Homogenization The second lecture focuses on the centrality of the demographic factor in explaining the transformation of European liberal democracies and European welfare states. It argues that while until recently, the relationship between democracy and demography was usually thought of in Malthusian terms (too many people and not enough resources), the demographic shock voiced in parts of Europe today is radically different. It is caused by political fears of demographic decline, depopulation, and a widening gap in opportunities and social attitudes between metropolitan centers and outlying areas. The picture is especially bleak in Central and Eastern Europe, where fertility is low and outmigration is high. The United Nations estimates that since the 1990s, the nations of this region have lost about 6 percent of their collective population, or about eighteen-million persons. If these people formed a country, it would be nearly as populous as the Czech Republic and Hungary combined. The lecture discusses the diverging paths of ethnic homogenization and ethnic diversity in the West of Europe and the East of Europe since World War I and its significance in explaining the nature of Central European populism of today.

Samantha Besson Droit international des institutions Collège de France Année 2021-2022 Ivan Krastev - Conférencier invité - Cycle europe du Collège de France : L'angoisse du déclin. Démocratie, démographie et clivage Est-Ouest en Europe En démocratie, la règle veut que les citoyennes et les citoyens élisent celles et ceux qui les gouvernent. Mais, dans les faits, les gouvernements tendent eux aussi à choisir celles et ceux qui les élisent. Ils opèrent ce choix par l'élaboration de lois sur la citoyenneté et de lois électorales, mais aussi par la mise en place de politiques migratoires, par le recours au redécoupage électoral à des fins politiques (gerrymandering), ou encore par l'entrave au droit de vote. La série de conférences proposées ici analyse la façon dont les majorités ethnoculturelles, en diminution dans les États membres de l'Union européenne (UE), tentent de préserver leur pouvoir et leur identité face à leur propre déclin démographique et à l'afflux migratoire. La thèse défendue est que le conflit actuel entre le libéralisme et l'illibéralisme en Europe n'est autre que l'expression de la rivalité entre deux images, idéalisées et opposées, du « peuple » que se choisissent différents gouvernements. Le libéralisme manifeste l'approbation donnée à un corps politique inclusif et représentatif de la diversité des sociétés modernes. L'illibéralisme s'appuie sur le majoritarisme démocratique pour préserver le caractère ethnique des démocraties nationales. Cette série de quatre conférences s'inscrit dans le cycle Europe du Collège de France 2021-2022 consacré au thème Les deux Europes. Conférence en anglais avec traduction simultanée en français. De l'importance du clivage Est-Ouest en Europe Ivan Krastev est président du Centre for Liberal Strategies de Sofia (Bulgarie) et membre permanent de l'Institute for Human Sciences de Vienne (Autriche). Il est également membre fondateur du Conseil européen des relations étrangères, membre du conseil d'administration de l'International Crisis Group et écrit régulièrement des articles pour le New York Times. Il est l'auteur de Est-ce déjà demain ? Le monde paradoxal de l'après-Covid-19 (traduit en français par Frédéric Joly et Amélie Petit pour les éditions Premier Parallèle, 2020 ; disponible en anglais aux éditions Penguin, octobre 2020) ; Le Moment illibéral (traduit en français par Johan Frederik Hel Guedj pour les éditions Fayard, 2019 ; disponible en anglais aux éditions Allen Lane, 2019), coécrit avec Stephen Holmes et lauréat de la 30e édition du prix annuel Lionel‑Gelber ; After Europe (UPenn Press, 2017) ; Democracy Disrupted. The Global Politics on Protest (UPenn Press, 2014) et In Mistrust We Trust: Can Democracy Survive When We Don't Trust Our Leaders? (TED Books, 2013). En 2020, Ivan Krastev a reçu le prix Jean Améry de l'essai européen. L'Europe est un labyrinthe complexe traversé de nombreuses lignes de faille et de divisions internes. Cette conférence introductive se concentre sur certaines de ces fractures qui caractérisent l'Europe d'aujourd'hui : la fracture Nord-Sud ; celle liée à la densité de population (manifeste dans l'écart entre les valeurs culturelles et les préférences électorales des personnes vivant dans les zones métropolitaines d'Europe et celles des zones rurales) et la fracture générationnelle. La thèse proposée sera la suivante : si remédier à ces clivages est certes d'une importance capitale pour l'avenir de l'UE, c'est en réalité la fracture Est-Ouest qui sera déterminante pour la préservation de l'Union en tant qu'espace libéral-démocrate. Conference in English with simultaneous translation into French. How Important Is the East-West Divide in Europe? Europe is a complicated maze with many fault lines and internal divisions. This introductory lecture focuses on several of the faults lines in today's Europe: the North-South Divide; the Density Divide (gap in cultural values and electoral preferences between people living in Europe's metropolitan areas and the rural areas); and the Generation Divide. It argues that while bridging all those divides is critically important for the future of the EU, it is the East-West divide that will have most importance for the preservation of the Union as a liberal-democratic space.

Canada, the apparently nicer, gentler country in North America, seldom makes it into the news in Britain, which is surprising, given the Queen is on their bank notes and there's a long colonial history. They appeared happy to be a little boring, content to get on with creating a prosperous society at ease with itself and the world (unlike their behemoth neighbor to the south). They are now, however, riven with controversy: wading into wars like Afghanistan; digging up mass graves of indigenous children; arresting, at Donald Trump's insistence, the daughter of the founder of Huawei on highly contentious charges. And, as if that wasn't enough, prime minister Trudeau has, like the UK's Theresa May did, triggered an unnecessary general election which he may very well not win. So, we invited RT's North America correspondent, Alex Mihailovic, to help us understand the new and changing character of Canada. There are several frontlines in the often-tense East/West confrontations. The Persian Gulf, the South China Sea and, perhaps the most fraught, the contentious lands between Russia and the Ukraine. They're not up for debate in law, of course, they are part of the Ukraine. But, in practice, the eastern part of Ukraine, Russian in language and character, lies within the control of the Ukrainian government. Whilst it is an urban myth that Russia has military forces in the Ukraine it is undoubtedly true that blood is thicker than water and there is a developing bond between eastern Ukraine and Russia. Into this tangled web the United States secret state puts in some hard work, too – sometimes it all reads like a Cold War drama from the 1950s. So, security expert Mark Sleboda joined Sputnik to try and disentangle the many strands.

HEAR THE HEADLINES – Timely Tea Delivery is in Troubled Waters | Tea is Thriving in the Convenience Channel | Iran Tea Production is Up 25pct | NEWS - The disruption of global supply chains is getting worse. Container vessel reliability for tea shipments crossing the Pacific continued to decline this summer as prices reached new heights. The World Container Index for eight East-West routes rose to a composite cost of $9,613 for the week of August 19 – up 360% compared to the same period last year. Consignments of tea shipped from Shanghai to Rotterdam increased 659% to $13,698 last week. | FEATURES – This week Tea Biz puts Burmese chefs in the spotlight for their culinary contributions in tea... and then we travel to London where Unilever unveiled four guiding principles of regenerative agriculture a topic currently trending in tea. Tea Leaf Cuisine Pickled tea leaves may sound a bit out of the ordinary but not for Southeast Asian chefs. Burma, now known as Myanmar, is an ancient crossroads influenced by the cuisine of bordering Bangladesh, China, Thailand, and Laos. It is here that laphet became a national dish that is now finding its way to US and European consumers in branded packaged goods. Regenerative Agriculture Danone CEO Emmanuel Faber writes that “never before have the health of people and the health of the planet been so closely interconnected.” Beginning this week, the Tea Biz Podcast and Blog undertakes a series of interviews with thought-leaders in tea from organizations such as the Rainforest Alliance, growers in Sri Lanka, where a nationwide ban on the import and manufacture of plant chemicals was instituted in May; and with multinationals like Unilever, a company with extensive tea holdings that recently unveiled its basic principals of regenerative agriculture. Today's segment is a primer introducing the topic and asking the critical question: Can a world that has already eroded a third of the planet's soils feed a population of 10 billion without intensive agricultural practices that rely on heavy inputs of fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides necessary to sustain monoculture farming?

Click Here to see all this hard work – thank you!! Joie also shared packaging from Todd's infamous “Squeaky Mickey”. This is HUGE! From 1978, this mickey toots his own horn, blows bubbles, and party favors. Take a look at this! Big thanks to Joie for the fun mail items this month. We spoke about Squeaky Mickey on Episode 7 and Episode 8. Our next message is from Michael Landis. He decided to reach out and ask about SMTV: Space Mountain TV. Here is a video for reference. We get into what the point of this was, including Crazy Larry! This is a great flashback to the 90s and New Tomorrowland. One item from that refurb that is possibly lost in your memories. Michael notes that it was very similar to a cross between MTV and Nickelodeon of the time.  The preshow videos were tied to the Fedex Sponsorship with took effect in 1993, more research on who created the video loop is needed. The video loop continued to run, minus the Fedex ads after 2003 when the Fedex sponsorship ended, until around 2009 when the queue was remodeled. Lindsay writes in to share about another Tom Cruise experience. She was working in the College Program in 2012 and was assigned to Cinderella's Royal Table, on the date she was supposed to be taking a cast tour of the Dream Suite, Tom Cruise and his daughter ended up booking the room and her tour was canceled.  She goes on to say that Tom ordered some food from the kitchen and other staff members from the restaurant took it up to the suite. People magazine covered the stay Cody then asks about the Epcot confusion of the East/West sections of Future World. Since Epcot was built on a north/south orientation with the entrance at the northern end of the park, it was decided to use the compass points for east and west for the two sides of CommuniCore and the Pavilions. Cody then asked about expansion of the monorail system asking if it was mostly the cost, the cost of creating new monorail lines was the main issue along with the flexibility of busses being another important factor. Cody's last question was about when the ability to ride in the front of the monorails went away, which was stopped after the fatal monorail crash the evening of July 5th 2009 near the Magic Kingdom. Our last letter comes from Tobias a new listener to the podcast who might have had another celebrity encounter. He tells the story of a park closing in 1983 being brought into the Magic Shop at the Magic Kingdom where he was asked to see and assist several magic tricks being presented by someone who was dressed like Michael Jackson but called himself Michael Jason.  If anyone knows of any of the magicians who might match this memory please let us know. Main Topic Welcome back to Pleasure Island! This is part three of our trilogy, which could possibly have a part four in the near future. We have been all over for our first two episodes, Part I & Part II. For this episode though, we are going to dig into two of the more famous Pleasure Island venues, The Comedy Warehouse & The Adventurer's Club. The Comedy Warehouse We begin with The Comedy Warehouse, which is actually the current location of STK. How leads us once again, starting off with typefaces, logos, and Brian also gets things going with a short history of comedy in the 70s & 80s. This is a super interesting look at the warehouse which discusses the concept art and also the club atmosphere, which is pretty much lost to history. One super interesting part of How's take on this club is the use of props and Disney items. I absolutely love how they tied all of this into the Comedy Warehouse. Finally, How drops the bomb on us that the show was totally scripted and wasn't standard, open mic comedy. The show actually made fun of Walt Disney World. We have a video on our YouTube Channel, and you can check that out right here. The outside of the building was themed to a warehouse with corrugated metal siding and sporting various editions of the signage until one with chattering teeth and mixed letting on the Warehouse section were used from that point on. Brian leads a brief discussion of the expansion of comedy clubs in the late 70's into the 80's.  Before this period comedians were relegated to opening acts, but suddenly various clubs were being opened in major cities nationwide. The expansion of cable channels started to push major comedy specials which lead to more comedy clubs opening. The entrance to the club was near the West End Stage with the queue running outside the club.  A temporary popup bar originally served those waiting, later a bar named Laughers was built to handle drinks for people waiting in the queue outside which was outside. Inside the theater there were three sections, floor, mid and balcony areas which could hold up to 290 guests, each seating row had stools to sit on and a pathway behind where the waiters could come and provide food and drinks. The concept art showed a couple of different possible stage setups, the warehouse ended up having a large number of rare and unique Disney props all over the walls.  Although most comedy clubs of the time would just have several stand-up comedians perform each night with a couple of clubs devoted to Improv, the Comedy Warehouse opened with a stage show called Forbidden Disney which was set up to make fun of all aspects of a Disney Vacation.   The show was written and directed by Tom Sherohman who also worked on some of the Adventures Club and Wonders of Life skits. The show was over 60 minutes in length and presented as a show inside a show, the performers were stuck in line elsewhere, but the staff needed to start the show.  The show featured three main vacationers, a Father who wanted to do everything, a Mother who wanted to take it easier and a Daughter who didn't want to be there at all. The first version of the show lasted about a year, between management's hesitation at running the show and the lack of interest from repeat Pleasure Island visitors.   Various segments of the show were still included after the change to an improv show. Chris Oyen, who moved to the Orlando area in 1990, was responsible for the direction for the new Improv style shows The Improv format continued to draw crowds until the closing of the Pleasure Island clubs in 2008.  In later years the warehouse would just sometimes have show normal stand up shows instead of improv.  One of the regular most memorable improv show techniques was to use a phone that would ring one of the phones at the end of the rows of the audience and build a song based on the feedback from the call.  Most of the other skits would take the random suggestions from the audience to build their comedy routines The comedy warehouse cast has reunited a number of times since the club closed, including some holiday shows at the Hollywood studios.  After a brief discussion of which hosts had visited the club during it's years of operation before we head across the west end to the Adventures Club. The Adventurers Club An all-time fan favorite that led to Mr. Toad level protest and outrage when it closed. It was patterned off the NYC Explorer's Club from the early 1900s. This dinner theater/dinner show/theme bar/everything else you want to refer it to was something different when compared to all the other clubs. Improvised characters, animatronics, multiple rooms, and multiple floors all went together to make this a super fun experience. As a group, we all get into our own personal experiences with The Adventurer's Club. Each of us went in different eras and also have different opinions on the club. Todd has an especially fun story that connected his family to the club and it sounds like it was a great time. We have a few different videos on our YouTube channel, which you can check out here and here. While the Adventurer's Club has left us, the memories are everlasting for many, many fans. As stated earlier in the Podcast, there seems to be the need for a fourth part of the Pleasure Island saga. This could very well end up as a box set on your bookshelf in the future! As always, when How gets into things the details are immense and the stories are plentiful. Thank you for listening and we hope you enjoyed this almost finished journey through Pleasure Island. The entrance to the Adventures Club started as a very plain building before remodeling in the early 90s.  The club was modeled after New York's Explorers Club which was founded in the early 1900's as well as other adventure style clubs of that era. The backstory for the club was that it was New Years Eve 1937 and the club was holding an Open House for all of those interested. Guests would enter on the second floor and pick up a schedule for the events of the evening.  The events would be split between the mask room, treasure room, the salon and the Library which was the largest room in the club. The Mezzanine level had numerous artifacts and black and white photos as well as some seating areas, there was a small bar on this level with an elevator and staircase that lead down to the main floor. The Main Salon was the central area of the club with the primary bar located here.  The bar had a number of themed alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks as well as some special bar stools that could be slowly lowered by the bartenders.  On one of the walls of the Main Salon was the Yakoose an animatronic mounted head that would come to life during the night and talk with the guests or Babylonia who was a large stone face puppet on the opposite wall.  The final character in the main salon was Colonel Critchlow Sunchbench who would interact with the other Adventure's Club cast as well as lead the new inductees in the club song. There were two small rooms off of the Main Salon, the Mask Room and the Treasure Room.  Inside the Mask Room, two large masks at the front of the room, Arnie and Claude talked, while other masks in the room moved their eyes, moved and laughed.  In the Treasure Room who would find the genie Beezle who's head would appear and float around in one of the cabinets. The largest room on the first floor was the Library a two-level space where the grand piano has crashed down from the second floor killing the pianist who haunts the piano as Fingers Zambezi.  The shows in the Library were usually held around every 40 minutes or so and included shows such as: Welcome Party Radio Broadcast The Balderdash Cup Competition The RadioThon The Hoopla – which was the final show of the evening There was a regular cast of characters at the Club, the actors could and would change characters throughout the night, the usual characters included:             Pamelia Perkins – Club President.             Otis T. Wren – Club Treasurer and ichthyologist             Hathaway Browne – Aviator, and the club's resident innuendo-making ladies' man.             Fletcher Hodges – Absent-minded Club Curator, he is said to have “mounted every object in the club.”             Graves – Club Butler.             The Maid             Marcel – A man in an ape suit   The Adventures Club offered Club Memberships for a reasonable fee per year bringing in more and more locals who would return weekly or more often to partake in the club's activities. One of the downsides of the Club was some of the confusion, which may have been planned, that new people would feel walking into the Club, seeing the schedule and having no idea what any of it meant.  When the main show was going on in the Library the club was rather dead, a explanation video or something else to help first-timers might have been helpful. A discussion was held about the locals who held a great fandom of the adventures club in comparison to other group event fandoms such as the Rocky Horror Picture show. The Jekyll And Hyde Club in New York City has a similar intent to the concept of the Adventures Club with different rooms and different events happening during the dining experience.  The closest experience still left at Walt Disney World would be the Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen which has different themed rooms with various artifacts and jokes found throughout the building. The Adventures Club, along with the rest of Pleasure Island, closed on Sept 27th 2008,  the cast reunited for one last performance and “membership renewal” during the 2014 D23 Destination D event at the Contemporary Resort

Mary also shares major findings from the dashboard, and explains how this type of data can bolster advocacy efforts for more equitable service.Ron Thompson is Policy Officer at Greater Greater Washington. Ron joins us to reflect on what the dashboard tells us about inequitable transit access in the DC region. In particular, he describes the East-West divide in the city, and how it affects access to hospitals for Black and Latinx residents.“The data illuminates that in many US regions, the transit systems are providing more access to white people compared to people of color, while at the same time in those cities we know that the demand is much higher from people of color for transit.” - Mary BuchananTo access the Transit Equity Dashboard, click here.To view a video tutorial of the dashboard, click here.For more on Greater Greater Washington, click here.For more on TransitCenter, visit us here. Hosted by Kapish SinglaEdited by Ali Lemer and Kapish SinglaProduced by TransitCenterMusic: “Comma” - Blue Dot SessionsDisclaimer: Political views raised by guests on the podcast do not reflect the views of TransitCenter.

Craig Peterson's Tech Talk
Have Your Healthcare Records Have Been Stolen, too?

Have Your Healthcare Records Have Been Stolen, too? Craig Peterson: We all have healthcare records, and they have some of our most personal information. That's what we're talking about today in follow-up to a webinar I did for the healthcare industry. So we're going to chat right now a little bit more about your privacy. Craig Peterson here.   The actual hard stats on our healthcare records, a lot of them have been stolen. It's just crazy to think about because, in reality, we have had millions of records stolen, 300 million healthcare records stolen to be exact since 2015; that is pretty bad. [00:00:38] I'm looking at a chart right now that I showed to this healthcare industry group that is showing that the hacking event has almost doubled over the last three years, year to year, every year. So in 2018, 164 powerful hacks 2019, 312. That's a good double. 2020, 430, which isn't quite a double. So we are seeing a lot of data being stolen. But, of course, stolen data means misused data, which is a huge problem. [00:01:14] Now, in the healthcare industry, they've got a different problem. That is these HIPAA rules. Now HIPAA has been in place for quite a while. It's supposed to have been provided Portability of our records. Does anybody have any real luck with that? I know there are some I haven't. [00:01:30] Portability, I don't even know where my health records have ended up. Frankly, cause my doctor ended up closing up shop, and I just have no idea. But it's supposed to be Portability and privacy. Well, the most common violations of these HIPAA regulations revolve around professional hackers. [00:01:50] Then you've got business associate disclosure. Remember I mentioned that. The cloud is not an excuse for not protecting your data. You cannot hand that off to a third party. There are many more that I go into in the presentation. [00:02:05]Then here's the next thing I wanted to talk with you guys about that is the amount of ransomware out there. I'm going to have a little bit of a ransomware offering. [00:02:15]If you're not a subscriber right now, go to craig peterson.com/subscribe. You'll actually see it on the site @craigpeterson.com. If you scroll around, do a few things on the site, it should pop up automatically for you. [00:02:31]Now we're just talking about healthcare, and of course, this is every business and every person out there. [00:02:37] I talked about this Conti gang. I don't know if you've heard of them. C ON T I. [00:02:42] Now, remember what I've said before about ransomware. It used to be that you'd get ransomware. Your computer would now have its data encrypted. Then it would pop up this big red screen up that said you've got ransomware to get to all of your data back because what the ransomware did was encrypt it. You need to go to this website. You need to pay this amount of Bitcoin to this Bitcoin wallet, and off it goes, right? That's the idea. [00:03:13]According to the FBI, you'll get all your data back half the time. That's even if you pay the ransom. Now, too, the state department and the FBI might come after you if you pay a ransom -- because now you are supporting terrorist organizations, not just criminal enterprises. Huge deal. [00:03:34] Now, the other side of ransomware, and this is what just hit with a few different medical providers here. I talked about the Rehobeth McKinney Christian health center services, New Mexico because now it's much more advanced instead of just getting on your computer, encrypting your files, demanding a ransom to get the decryption key. They even pre-install the decryptor for you. Isn't that handy?  What they are doing is they get onto a computer, and then they start East-West spreading. Now we've seen that for years. [00:04:08] I remember one of our clients, a car dealer, and this was five-seven years ago. They got some ransomware. Somebody clicked on something that they shouldn't have, and suddenly their machine gets ransomware. The device, of course, is hooked up to the network. It is, in fact, mounting drives from their file server. So his machine has access to all of these files. This guy was a manager over there at this car dealership. So he had access to all of the files. [00:04:47] Think about that for a minute. What his machine did back then is it said, Oh great, here are some network drives. So it started encrypting the S drive and the H drive, and the K drive. All of these different letters for these SMB mounted drives from the file server. [00:05:03]We were in there beforehand, and we installed our security stuff. [00:05:08]When his machine got this brand new strain of ransomware, and of course, he didn't want us looking at what was on his device. So we couldn't install all of the antivirus software because then we would have access to it. [00:05:22]We've got another client that's like that too, where the owner of the business doesn't want us installing software to really keep his machine clean. [00:05:29] I don't know why people do that. Are they just trying to play their cards close to the chest? Is that what they're trying to do? Are they looking at something they shouldn't be looking at at work? [00:05:43] Why do people do that? If you've got hints, let me know. Cause I would love to know me@craigpeterson.com. Why do people do that? [00:05:52]Anyhow, his machine got the ransomware. It tried to start spreading to the file server. Now, we had special hardware and software installed. So we saw that spread start. We immediately shut down. It was all automatic. It was just shut down because our systems shut down his network port. [00:06:13] His computer had the ransomware. We were able to just go ahead and restore from backup. The bad guys know that if all they're doing is encrypting your data, then who cares? You restore from backup. [00:06:29] Now, hopefully, you're following a three-two-one backup scheme. Most places don't. [00:06:36] Hopefully, you're testing it as well. We try every backup that we make for our customers every day. About once a week, we will spin up the servers in a virtual environment and make sure that it can boot to know we have a good backup.  I got to tell you guys that the backups are not working most of the time, and it gets to be a real problem. [00:06:57]What these guys have figured, including this Conti gang, is we're not going to be able to get as much money out of them by just encrypting their discs. We need to do something else. So while they're trying to spread East-West inside, what they're doing is okay, so they got a hold of this manager's computer. They start scanning for other computers and scanning for vulnerabilities scanning for ways it can gain access. [00:07:26] Unfortunately, the statistics show us that most of us have file shares turned on our windows machines. [00:07:34] That's one of the things I talk about in my Improving Windows Security course, what to do, how to do, how to turn that off because that is the second target of ransomware. Once it gets onto your machine. [00:07:49] You've got to turn off those file-sharing services.

Adam is an Artist and the founder of East+West. He spent the last 10 years traveling through India and Bali studying yoga in non-traditional settings and searching for the best yoga teachers on earth. He is certified in Integrative Health from Duke University.Alignment as we spoke of it here was about making aligned life choices and navigating being open for aligned opportunities to arise while being able to turn down what is unaligned and being patient - as well as alignment in the context of listening to that inner spark of excitement and taking the leap to act on those sparks, whether they are bigger decisions like traveling, moving somewhere, starting a business, or perhaps smaller decisions like going to an event or taking some given fork in the road - not because you logically know why but because something in you is lighting up about it.
