The One With the Draws. Will Cooling is joined by Lewis Brown (@lewisjamesbrown) to discuss the return of Jon Moxley and the renaming of Walter. They then have two looks at Wrestling Draws - who are the biggest draws in wrestling history and should draws be allowed in wrestling. English really is a stupid, confusing language. All this and much more, including why Will thinks British wrestling fans are so embittered, and which British politician Lewis had to excuse himself from campaigning with to record the podcast.

Ana Guzmán talked about her experience as an English Language Learner and reframing that term to Emergent Bilingual as she now works to help students who are learning a second language. I love that reframing, focusing on the impressive fact that these students already know at least one language and are learning an additional language! She shared some strategies art educators can use in reaching and teaching emergent bilingual students as well as advocating with administration and higher level bureaucrats. I loved hearing about her art journaling and how she's taking time to reflect as part of her own art-making practice. That ebb and flow in life is so REAL and so important to talk about. We can't do everything all the time, as much as we may want to. Ana shared resources for connecting art and English learning as well as several scholars whom she's learned from.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for January 22, 2022 is: opine • oh-PYNE • verb Opine means "to express an opinion." // The writer opines that the town library should be open for longer hours during the summer months.  See the entry > Examples: "Apple's purpose has always been to empower the users of its wares. 'People are inherently creative. They will use tools in ways the toolmakers never thought possible,' once opined Steve Jobs, the computer maker's late co-founder." — The Economist, 27 Nov. 2021 Did you know? Opine is not a back-formation of opinion. Both words come from Middle French opiner, meaning "to express one's opinion," and Latin opīnārī, "to have in mind" or "to think." And they were thought up as words for the English language independently at different times.

There's beauty in imperfections and too few realize this! On the surface, social standards would make people think twice about showing imperfections. However, when the focus is on the true purpose for these so-called imperfections, you start to see the beauty. For Jonathan McLernon, it took a traumatic experience of being attacked and nearly beaten to death, back when he and his wife were nomadic English teachers, to really appreciate his imperfections. As a result of that trauma, Jonathan turned to binge eating to address his emotional distress, and became morbidly obese. He started hating his body, garnered all sorts of insecurities, and he blamed his big heart for feeling so many confusing and painful emotions, which led to pushing his wife away. Despite his attempts to create distance, his wife decided to close any gaps by becoming even more committed to their marriage. When Jonathan learned to open up, they were able to have compassionate conversations that brought their marriage to the next level. At the same time, Jonathan continued to improve his life by addressing his obesity. After many failed attempts at losing weight through different programs, he finally met someone who understood him. Jonathan was shown compassion and was taught self-compassion, through which he worked on healing his relationship with himself and his body. Currently, Jonathan owns a nutrition supplements store, is an online nutrition coach who focuses on “brain-driven weight loss”, and he mentors other coaches on how to build sustainable businesses. Jonathan leverages the marks left by obesity to remind himself of his potential, and he has learned to embrace his empathic nature, allowing him to deliver powerful and authentic messages that resonate and build strong relationships with his clients. Tune in to learn more about working to accomplish your purpose, appreciating your imperfections, and employing compassion for a strong business and stronger marriage.Connect with Jonathan:Website: https://freedomnutritioncoach.com/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/freedomnutritioncoach/Email: coachjon@freedomnutritioncoach.comConnect with Cory and Jojo:Strong Business Stronger Marriage Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/221111245753095Cory's Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/coryrankinJojo's Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/jojo.rankin.395Lastly, If you would like to set up a call with us.

What is the point of an education? Is it to learn skills that will help you get ahead in the workplace, or is it to acquire knowledge and to think more deeply about your place in the world?In this episode we hear from an educator who thinks that the great books— Plato, Aquinas, Shakespeare for example— aren't just for a few well-off students at elite colleges, but for everybody. And he says encountering these thinkers when he was a poor immigrant teenager from the Dominican Republic literally changed his life.Roosevelt Montás is senior lecturer in American Studies and English at Columbia University. He is director of the Center for American Studies Freedom and Citizenship Program, which introduces low-income high school students to primary texts in moral and political thought, as well as seminars in American Studies including “Freedom and Citizenship in the United States.” From 2008 to 2018, he was director of Columbia's Center for the Core Curriculum. "There is a prevailing cultural attitude that liberal education— the study of literature and philosophy — is appropriate only to the elite," Roosevelt tells us. "That is a really pernicious idea." He argues that the students who benefit the most from the foundational wisdom in the "great books" come from poor and marginalized backgrounds.But liberal education is under assault today in academia. We find out why.Recommendation: Richard is watching the Anglo-Japanese Netflix TV series, "Giri / Haji", — duty/shame in Japanese— a thriller about a Tokyo detective scouring the London underworld to find his allegedly deceased brother.

Welcome back to the Aww Shift Podcast! Today, our guest is Mark Gaunya, the Founding Principal and CEO of Captivated Health. Benefits Pro recognizes him as a Top 5 Broker of the Year Finalist, Benefits Adviser nationally, and one of the top 30 Thought Leaders. Mark developed innovative solutions to complex challenges to save clients time and money. He's passionate about consumerism, health & well-being, and its exponentially positive cultural and financial impact on businesses and organizations. Mark is also the Principal of Borislow Insurance, which serves clients who invest $1m+ in their employee benefits program by developing innovative solutions to complex challenges, saving time and money. Today, Mark talks with us about the healthcare system issues that consumers face today. [9:21] Why should I listen to you? The first thing you'll notice is that I'll be paying attention to you because I'm naturally curious about other people and their stories. I'm curious about what makes people tick, what motivates them, what they care about, and what they are passionate about. We'll have a great conversation if we can discover areas of commonality.  [9:55] What do you do better than other people? I take complicated stuff and make it simple for people to understand. [10:37] How can you bring the conversation of healthcare understandable to the ninth-grade level? Like anything in life, you'll first have to understand the language. If you are having a conversation while translating one word at a time, it's nearly impossible to do. That is exactly what nine out of ten individuals in our country are doing with healthcare right now. It was purposefully designed to be overly complicated. [12:14] If you look at the big rule makers; the government, health insurers, regulatory bodies, they've developed this system through an opaque process called “Coding” and “Billing.” A code is created and sent to an insurance company. The produced code or negotiated price is then discussed between the healthcare provider and the health insurance.  [13:13] How did healthcare become what it is today?  There's a lot of money in healthcare. Looking at healthcare as an industry sector, it's three and a half to four trillion dollars of our economy. In most areas in the country, healthcare is the largest employer. [13:56] I know many people in all these areas, and they are all great people. But they are in a construct that doesn't put you and me at the center of it. It puts the people who are making the rules at the center of it. Fortunately, there was a law that was passed. Healthcare is now pricing quality transparency. But the challenging news is how we implement that. The first step is, if you can't see it, you can't measure it. If you can't measure it, you can't improve it. As a healthcare consumer, the first thing you need to understand is the inverse correlation between price and quality. [16:47] How money is affecting the Healthcare System  Most individuals are unaware that many of our chronic pharmaceuticals are manufactured in tier one English-speaking countries like Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. By the time they get here, they're seven to eight times more expensive than they should be. [17:19] An annual supply costs $17,000 in countries where medicine is manufactured. However, when it arrives through the FDA and drugstore chains in the United States, the same medicine costs $69,000 due to the layered fees throughout the system. The costs that consumers do not perceive are added on top of the profit margins.  Financially, you are ultimately assessed by the performance of whatever service you provide, but you are not measured on the value you provide. [18:48] How does your company help?  We work directly with employers who sponsor health insurance for their employees. When you look at this country, about 180 million people get their insurance from their employers. We focus on a particular area of the market with between 50 and 500 employees. Those employees or employers typically buy a “fully-insured plan” from a national carrier. They charge their employees a premium that they share for the plan they're offering. We do something similar, except that it's not fully insured called “Partial Self-Insurance.” The employer exits the blind market in which they have no idea what is going on with getting charged. They go into an environment where they are willing to accept the risk of covering their people's healthcare costs. They find themselves in a position where they can act as their own insurance business. What we do is act as their intelligence chip on the inside, operating that for them. [22:23] How did this become something you're passionate about?  I started to tackle the problem of our healthcare system because of my mother, who was a nurse, and my father, who was an Orthopedic Sports Medicine Physical Therapist. They taught me the business of healthcare. They weren't only medical professionals. They were also business owners that were incredibly creative. They were entrepreneurial in the sense that they just believed that healthcare could be delivered more effectively. I went to work for my mom and dad when I got to school. I went to their work for a bunch of insurance companies. For the last 17 years, I've been on the consulting brokerage side of the business and representing employers and consumers.   Key Quotes  [15:37 – 15:44] “When you provide information and transparency of information, there are a lot of things we see that people don't want us to see necessarily.” [17:50 – 18:00] “You are ultimately measured by the performance of whatever service you're providing. But you're not being measured on the value you're providing relative to the price you're providing.”  [21:38 – 21:46] “The right call doesn't necessarily mean the least expensive. The right call means the highest quality care you can receive at the lowest possible price point.”   Learn more about Mark Gaunya on:  Email: mark@borislow.com LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-s-gaunya-gba-lia-186a956/ Website:http://www.captivatedhealth.com/             http://www.borislow.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/markgaunya

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for January 21, 2022 is: derring-do • dair-ing-DOO • noun Derring-do refers to daring action that requires bravery and courage. // In a spectacular feat of derring-do, the stuntman leaped from the overpass and landed on top of the train as it passed below. See the entry > Examples: "With more than 80 pieces of bronze, steel, and iron on display [at The Age of Armor exhibit], it's impossible not to think of stories of gallant knights, courtly love, and brave acts of derring-do." — Jason Webber, The Toledo (Ohio) Blade, 7 Nov. 2021 Did you know? Derring-do is a quirky holdover from Middle English that came to occupy its present place in the language by a series of mistakes and misunderstandings. In Middle English, dorring don meant simply "daring to do." The phrase was misprinted as derrynge do in a 15th-century work by poet John Lydgate, and Edmund Spenser took it up from there. (A glossary to Spenser's work defined it as "manhood and chevalrie.") Literary author Sir Walter Scott and others brought the noun into modern use.

They ask, "When a report seems to fall apart, what should a reporter do?"

#1205 Today we're talking to Jim from Spanish and Go, who joined us in episode 1,151. Jim and his wife and business partner, May, run a business that connects English speakers who want to travel to Spanish-speaking countries with people in those countries, to help them learn the language and culture. Unfortunately, Spanish and Go was incredibly affected by the pandemic in a not-so-great way. Jim and May had to cancel several Spanish immersion retreats they'd lined up right before the pandemic began and refund everyone who had signed up. Their YouTube ad revenue was slashed in half. And they had just started a podcast with a membership component to create some extra income. We talk about some of the things Jim and May did first in the wake of this shock. And we'll talk about the moves they've made since and where they are now. I think you'll find this one helpful if your business has been struggling lately, from the effects of the pandemic or otherwise.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for January 20, 2022 is: non sequitur • NAHN-SEK-wuh-ter • noun A non sequitur is a statement that either does not logically follow from or is not clearly related to what was previously said. // The host's non sequitur about the award recipient's unconventional dress did not go unnoticed by her fans on social media. See the entry > Examples: "[Norm Macdonald] was always open about how much he worshipped David Letterman…. His impersonation of his idol on SNL … was sharp enough to turn some of Letterman's verbal quirks and repeated non sequiturs ('Ehh....got any gum?') into a spot-on impression." — Rolling Stone, 15 Sept. 2021 Did you know? In Latin, non sequitur means "it does not follow." The phrase was borrowed into English in the 1500s by people who made a formal study of logic. For them, it meant a conclusion that does not follow from the statements that lead to it. But we now use non sequitur for any kind of statement that seems to come out of the blue.
