It is no secret that Keith works for Trader Joe's. If you have listened to us regularly you know that it comes up often during our shows. There have been times where the arrival of a beverage to Trader Joe's has either inspired us to plan for a future podcast or has saved us at the last minute because we still hadn't figured out what we would be trying the next day. This particular beverage falls into the former category as we knew the week before that we would be featuring this for a show. For this episode we will be trying the Trader Joe's Reserve Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2020. Established in 1992 as an American Viticultural Area (AVA), the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA includes approximately 5,700 acres of vinifera grapevines, predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This Chardonnay is available for a limited time and is priced at $9.99. What did we think? What do you think?

Small businesses need to establish their profile and build community good will. That's where Susan Liberatore, owner of Visions2Images, comes in. On this episode, we learn about the full-service marketing magic she uses to raise visibility through social media channels, email campaigns, website content and so much more. Established franchisors may have big umbrella branding, but independently owned businesses need that personal touch. Customization based on location and target audience is key. Susie has created signature systems and processes that generate and convert leads and bring to life the stories that make every franchise unique. In addition to working with franchisees, Susie is increasingly bringing her dynamic, creative approach to franchisors, who are invested in giving their teams the tools necessary to develop roots, an identity and local presence. In the end, it's all about really getting integrated into the neighborhood. Advises Susie: “Get involved in everything you can, as often as you can.” That can look like volunteer efforts, an affiliation with the Chamber of Commerce or sponsoring a local event of some type. Then get going with the social media posts that will amplify what your franchise is about and why your core mission and goals are compelling. You don't have to shine on every single platform. TikTok isn't for everyone! Just choose a couple that feel like a natural fit for your target market and let your own unique, authentic personality shine! Interested in some of Susie's favorite resources? This link will introduce you to a variety! And you can find out more about her branding and design offerings here. Click here to listen to, rate and review this or previous She Turned Entrepreneur episodes. Here are key takeaways from the conversation:· Going down the wrong path? It's all information – and more than okay to change lanes! · The best career choices are the ones that resonate with who we truly are.· Franchises may be under a corporate umbrella, but they are in actuality small local businesses – run by folks in our own neighborhoods!· Franchisees may have certain franchisor guidelines to follow, but that shouldn't discourage anyone from launching a bespoke local marketing campaign. It's not hard.· Want to raise your profile locally? Start finding and cultivating your tribe! Get involved with local civic, volunteer, athletic or other events. · The more people you meet the better – and don't forget always to link to new friends and colleagues via social media!· Just because you're working under a corporate umbrella doesn't mean you can't have your own voice.· Not all social media platforms are a fit! Don't be afraid to identify those that work with your brand and voice, then focus on being consistent and creative. Here's a quick look into the episode:· Photographer. Dancer. Susie knew early that she had a creative bent, which is probably why pursuing college and a teaching credential turned into a brief detour on the way to uncovering her passion for graphic design – and all its related marketing facets.· A stint in a corporate environment opened Susie's eyes to a gap that she could fill by creating a niche marketing agency that evolved into its focus on helping franchisees. · About the services that Visions2Images provides:o Brand creation.o Graphic design.o Website design.o Social media content.o Email campaigns.o Lead generation and conversion.· Even if franchisor approval is required for local marketing campaigns, the process doesn't have to be complicated or onerous. Not at all!· Advice for franchisees seeking to raise their profile:o Get involved with everything you can!o Participate in the Chamber of Commerce.o Join volunteer activities.o Update social media regularly to link with your new local contacts!· It's key to develop your personality and create posts that reflect your unique brand and community ties.· Susie is partnering increasingly with new and emerging franchisors, who are in a position to support their local franchisees as they get established.· Best practices for leveraging social media:o Be authentic.o Share core values, mission and other facets that distinguish your business.o Build out a story about the business's history, purpose and engagement.o You don't have to be on every social media platform! Find the ones that work best for you and double down! Focus on where your audience is located.· Balancing it all as a single mom, Susie's best advice is: o Take some deep breaths, meditate and otherwise give your mind a break.o Be intentional in prioritizing time with kids. o Outsource tasks where necessary to make it all work.· Susie's biggest motivators: Sales and growth, her son and providing for her contractors.· What Comes Next? Susie has no definite plans but she anticipates:o A continued trend towards partnering with more franchisors to help them create scalable marketing plans.o Building out a software product.o Staying open to opportunities! About Susie:After more than a decade in the creative field, Susie realized that corporations were missing out on creativity, so she developed signature systems and processes that work and convert for franchises. Franchise owners come to Visions2images for full-service marketing because they feel that they are missing out on local marketing opportunities. Her firm helps local franchise businesses get visible and generate leads in a variety of ways.
Key Things Discussed The crucial mindset shift that must occur in shifting to a new model. Three components necessary to set teams up for long-term success. Data analytics, education and why OKRs depend on bringing teams along. Common organizational problems that OKRs quickly uncover and highlight. Elements to develop and instill for better (not more) management. The pitfalls of a cascading management style. Setting the stage for successful OKR implementation. Show Notes [00:02:44] A quick hello to this episode's guest, OKR expert Felipe Castro. [00:03:59] Why OKR? Customers give lots of reasons – ranging from weak (the boss read a book or everyone's doing it) to borderline vague (accountability or transparency). [00:04:36] The Tinkerbell Approach: The common misperception (or delusion!) that a little bit of fairy dust is all it takes to take a traditional enterprise to Google-level OKR success. [00:05:34] Adopting OKR is not a goal in and of itself. It's a transformational tool to help organizations be more competitive, adaptive and normative in the 21st century. [00:06:19] Successful OKR implementations require that organizations do three key things: Demonstrate commitment and consistency over time. Learn how to execute the system in practice. Accept that old models and experience will have to be unlearned. [00:07:36] Three components necessary to set teams up for success: Access to the data (liberate it from the silos!). Clarity about the core business metrics and strategy. Knowledge of data analytics and statistics. [00:09:44] Felipe shares some of the common organizational problems that OKRs quickly uncover and highlight: Lack of clarity about goals. Lack of grounding in the strategy behind projects. Managers who don't provide clear context. [00:11:04] Elements to develop and instill for better (not more) management: Leadership (based on new rather than old business models) Problem-solving skills. An ability to both offer and communicate trust. Permission to get inspired and inspire others. [00:14:32] Felipe explains why part of the beauty in OKRs is that they don't take a one-size-fits all approach. Rather, it's a flexible philosophy that can be tailored and tweaked based on a huge range of factors across industries and organizational cultures. [00:18:44] OKRs may vary, but there remain common foundational building blocks. [00:19:44] Felipe shares his take on cascading management: 100% top-down. Lacks agility. Creates silos. Discourages inter-departmental collaboration. Fails to provide clearly defined, measurable goals. [00:24:44] It's a journey! Felipe explains the (necessarily imperfect) process of establishing OKRs and bringing everyone along. [00:27:52] Stumbling Blocks: Felipe shares one OKR scenario that commonly occurs at large companies (overattachment to a business case or spreadsheet) and another that often besets smaller companies (data availability bias). [00:31:02] Better tools create better outcomes. But not without a holistic approach that includes a commitment to educating and enabling teams. [00:33:44] Don't leave talent on the table! Give teams the tools they need! [00:35:06] Elements that set the stage for successful OKR implementation: Ensure that teams understand the metrics and data fundamentals. Establish weekly one-to-ones for continuous feedback. Ongoing coaching and development. Adoption of advanced engineering technologies to improve processes. Regular customer feedback interviews. Established systems to test, experiment and collect data for nimble decision-making. [00:39:30] Felipe shares his evolving thoughts on what capabilities are critical to successful OKR implementation at traditional organizations, including the need for a bridge between old and new business models (in spite of inevitable hiccups and cultural challenges). [00:43:30] The Finer Points of Performance: Standards for evaluation are as variable as team and individual roles, responsibilities and contributions. Beware tying bonus structures and compensation to measures that are inefficient, inaccurate or illogical. [00:49:59] Why individual goals can be a huge liability and disincentive. [00:51:22] Defining calibration and how it level sets performance reviews. [00:52:44] Quick Fire Questions for Felipe: What do you appreciate most about your team? Passion and commitment. What is your greatest dream and its associated deadline? To facilitate a second edition (with new contributions/examples) of the classic John Doerr book, "Measure What Matters: The revolutionary movement behind the explosive growth of Intel, Google, Amazon and Uber." No deadline since it's up to the author! Can you describe an experience or situation that made you proud? It's a feeling that arises whenever organizations adopt, evangelize for and continue to use OKR tools in the long term – which fortunately for Felipe has been a common occurrence! What's the most important word of advice you can give people who want to try OKRs but feel wary? They are not a “to do” list. It's about the outcomes you want to achieve and creating data-driven, measurable benefits for your customers, your company and your employees.

Episode 18: In this episode, Molley and Chad speak with Kentucky State Trooper Jonathan Biven about a very special place on Dale Hollow Lake, Trooper Island Kid's Camp. Established in 1965, KSP Colonel Ted Bassett wanted to provide a place for underprivileged children to have the opportunity to escape their struggles and have a week to interact in a positive way with law enforcement. It was meant to let them simply be kids. Who Gets to Go to Trooper Island Kid's Camp? The 35-acre Island has 9 weeks of camps and tries to serve 720 kids ranging between the ages of 10-12 years of age. It's open to both girls and boys. There's on online Camper Application available on the Camp's website. They also offer a Scholarship Program. The Kentucky State Troopers have 16 posts throughout the Commonwealth. They work with schools, kids and parents to help identify prospective kids who would be interested in coming to the camp. Since its beginning, over 60 campers have gone on to become KY State Troopers. The camp has had over 20,000 campers, so far. In fact, one of the campers from the 1985-1986 years, is the current Commissioner of the Kentucky State Police, PJ Burnett. Is the Island just for Kid's Camp? Actually, no. The KSP also makes the facilities available to church groups, local area residents and other uses. Even when people aren't on site, there's still a lot of work to be done. How Can People Contribute to the Camp? Trooper Island Kid's Camp is not supported by state funds. There's a constant need to try to raise donations to support the facilities and the mission. There are raffles, golf tournaments, jeep rallies and other events. You can donate directly via the website. There's also a way to buy raffle tickets directly through the site. Inflation is dramatically impacting the budget for fuel, supplies, maintenance and food. The need is tremendous, but so is the good this camp does. A Day in the Life of a Camper on the Island Trooper Jonathan describes a typical day for the kids who attend Trooper Island Kid's Camp. A bus picks them up and transports the 70-80 kids to the camp. They arrive and take a barge to the island. They learn how to swim, fish, shoot archery, kayak, hunter & gun safety and general recreation. It gives them a chance to see the 10-12 troopers interacting with the campers and having fun with everyone. On Wednesday nights, the troopers put on their KSP uniforms. The kids quickly begin connecting the fun guys they've been spending time with are also troopers. But more importantly, the recognize that each trooper is also a person. They are there to help, even when they leave the island. Trooper Jonathan basically works and lives on the island. He was a public affairs liaison for KSP. He first visited the island in 2004. He became an avid fundraiser for the camp. Eventually, an opening became available and Jonathan got the job. His daughters are camp counselors on the island. He credits his staff with much of the ongoing success of the island and the overall experience. People work year-round on the island. Training for Police Officers One of the ways KSP utilizes Trooper Island is as a training facility. Police officers are training for DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education program). The Louisville metro police dive team will perform rescue/recovery training and skill enhancement at Dale Hollow Lake and use the facilities during that time. The Kentucky State Police Academy will also utilize the facilities for a week of survival training. Trooper Jonathan's Favorite Thing about the Trooper Island Jonathan mentions is about 1 kid. This boy came to the camp at age 11. He's been to the camp every single year since then. He's now 19 years old and is helping as a counselor. There's a connection and Jonathan knows the camp is having a positive impact on this young man's life. On the other hand, the winter months can be challenging on the island. If you forget something in town, it takes time to go back and get it. The weather can be difficult at times. Thankfully, the staff is here working, but this camp is designed to be filled with campers and visitors. Open to the Public Molley and Chad originally won a weekend on the island, in an auction sponsored by an organization. They've been coming back and making donations to support the island ever since that first experience. Important: If you would like to come and spend a few days on the island, you can call the office at (270) 433-5422. If the cabins are available, you can visit and stay there. They ask that you make a donation for the opportunity. Closing Words from Trooper Jonathan The camp is always looking for towels and other supplies. You can drop them off at a KSP post to be used for the Trooper Island Kid's Camp. Some of the kids don't have the most basic things. If you have extra clothes that would fit a 10-12 year old child (including bathing suits), they are greatly appreciated. The kids who attend camp will take the clothes home with them We'd like to thank Trooper Jonathan Biven for joining us for this episode. Trooper Island Kid's Camp is a wonderful resource, provide by the Kentucky State Police and your generous donations. That's a wrap for this episode. We hope you found it helpful, insightful and maybe a little entertaining. Thanks for Listening! If you enjoyed this podcast, please consider sharing it with your social media friends.

Episode #31 - How to Open Yourself Up to New & Exciting Career Options with Guest Casey Hasten Over the years of my work in this space, I've found four levels of careerists: Drifter, Hustler, Established. and Rebel. Unfortunately, many people are caught at the Hustler level (running on autopilot, blindly following a societal career ladder) or Established (working hard to maintain everything achieved after years of hustling). At both of these levels, what keeps women stuck are two things: (1) believing there's no other path to pursue and (2) “settling for good enough.” In today's podcast, our guest Casey Hasten shares how she broke out of that Hustler/Established level and opened up a new and exciting world that has allowed her to continue growing and evolving in her career. In this episode of the Midlife Career Rebel Podcast, you'll discover… Casey's midlife career pivot journey. Why knowing yourself is an essential component of finding career fulfillment. The power of having people to support you and your career decisions. The importance of testing out career options and what it can do for you.

This show was curated by the Mokuhanga Sisters collective and is called Between Worlds from, June 17 - July 31st, 2022. Rochester, New York - is a city located in Upstate New York. It was originally inhabited by the Seneca peoples. Shaped by the Genesee River, Rochester was once a flour making city as well as a city famous for its horticulture. More information can be found, here. Hunter College - Is a public college located in Manhattan, New York, and was founded in 1870 as a college for women. More info, here. abstract art - is an art type which moved away from a 19th Century artistic idea of perspective. Abstract art was a rebellion of colour, shape, and experience, for both the viewer and the maker. It corresponds to the modernism of the industrial world, with science, technology, and architecture. More info can be found, here. colour field - is a term in painting associated with the abstract painters of the 1950's and 1960's using large swaths of flat colour. Mark Rothko (1903-1970) is one such painter associated with colour field. More info, here. Vincent Longo (1923-2017) - was a painter, printmaker and teacher based in New York City. He was a part of the New York School of artist's of the 1950's and 1960's. His work was based in geometry. You can find more information about Vinnie, here. 4 Blocks (1985) Bill Paden (1930-2004) - was a woodblock printmaker and artist who studied under the American expat Clifton Karhu (1927-2007) in Kyoto. More info, here. Beppu Beach Water Bay Mountain (ca. 1970's) hanmoto system - is the Edo Period (1603-1868) collaboration system of making woodblock prints in Japan. The system was about using, carvers, printers, and craftsmen, by various print publishers in order to produce woodblock prints. The system consisted of the following professions; publisher, artist, carver, and printer. Tetsuya Noda (b 1940) - is a contemporary print artist, photographer and professor emeritus at Tokyo University of the Arts (Tōkyō Geidai). His process uses photographs through a mimeograph machine, then woodblock and silk screen. Considered one of Japan's most famous living artists, Noda's work is a wonderful representation of what can be done with the print medium. More info, with video, can be found, here. The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies - is a not for profit centre at the Columbia University School of the Arts, which provides an atmosphere of print education for students and invited guests. Tōkyō v Kyōto (Ōsaka) school of mokuhanga - Tōkyō and Kyōto have, historically, been culturally different throughout Japanese history. Even today, especially with foreign expats, which side of the border you pledge allegiance to can make or break a pleasant conversation. Regarding woodblock printing, it was the moving of the capital to Edo from Kyōto by Tokugawa Ieyasu (1542-1616), officially in 1603, which centred the world for an entire nation. Edo became the business, and cultural district in which most people found themselves. The sankin kōtai system, where daimyō from the entire country, were obligated to spend alternating years in the capital, allowed the merchant classes to grow prosperous, spending their time and money on entertainments such as ukiyo-e, kabuki, and sumo. This didn't mean that Kyōto and Ōsaka didn't have ukiyo-e, it simply meant that it was overshadowed by Edo. This is because many publishers and artists lived and worked in Edo's environs. Kabuki from Edo and kabuki from Kyōto thrived, therefore there were many prints published for the plays performed in both cities. Stylistically the prints are different, with Ōsaka ukiyo-e being called Kamigata-e, the region where Ōsaka, and Kyōto are situated. For instance, the work of Ōsaka artist, and painter Shunkōsai Hokushū (active 1802-1832) is famous in Ōsaka for his kabuki prints, but is relatively unknown today, as compared to Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) who lived and worked around the same time in Edo. Comparing the two is perhaps comparing Brad Pitt (b. 1963), with Steve Buscemi (b. 1957), but I feel that it shows what both artists, successful in their fields, can accomplish for the genre. More information on Ōsaka ukiyo-e, can be found, here. Keiko Kadota (1942-2017) - was the director of Nagasawa Art Park at Awaji City from 1997-2011, and then of MI Lab at Lake Kawaguchi from 2011 until her passing.

India is the world's second-biggest consumer and importer of gold, buying about 800-850 tonnes per annum. The country accounts for 25% of the world's gold demand. But, so far, India has not been a global price setter for the yellow metal. Recent launch of the India International Bullion Exchange in Gujarat's GIFT City is a step in that direction. India's first global bullion exchange, the IIBX will facilitate efficient price discovery and ensure standardisation, quality assurance and sourcing integrity. Until now, only certain banks and nominated agencies were allowed by the Reserve Bank of India to import gold and sell it to dealers and jewellers. The bullion exchange will allow qualified jewellers to directly import gold. Qualified jewellers with net worth of ₹25 crore and 95 per cent of revenue from jewellery and NRIs with $5 lakh net worth can trade in the exchange, provided they want to take delivery. The biggest gold consumer, China, runs such a bourse where all domestic production and imported gold have to be bought and sold. Established along the lines of the Shanghai Gold Exchange and Borsa Istanbul, India's bullion exchange is aimed at making the country a key regional hub for bullion flows. It has already on-boarded over 60 jewellers. And many more are in the pipeline. Ashok Gautam, the CEO of the bullion exchange, said that silver trading will be allowed on the exchange in the future. In the early stage, 1 kg gold of 995 purity and 100 gram gold of 999 purity will be traded with a settlement period of T+0. The settlement period will be later extended to T+2 days. The trade will be in the form of bullion depository receipts denominated in dollars. The exchange has also roped in three companies to provide vault services. Apart from enabling price transparency for gold, the India International Bullion Exchange will also help in bringing foreign traders to Indian shores.

Production was suspended by the Food and Fuel Control Act. Midway Distilling barrels were then bottled as medicinal spirits until 1924 when the distillery and its remaining inventory were destroyed by fire. The city of Midway was founded after Colonel John Francsico sold his 216 acre farm to the L&O Railroad Company in 1835. The original “distillery district” of Midway aka Lot 25, where several distilleries operated 1865-1877, was then moved to the Northeast corner of Dudley & Gratz, which eventually became home to the original Midway Distilling Company. During this time, the main water source for the distilleries in the area was Lee's Branch, an off-shoot of the Elkhorn Creek. Fast forward to 2021, the Midway Distilling name has been Reclaimed as a line of barrel aged rye whiskeysThe team at Bluegrass Distillers is committed to reviving the rich 155 year history of distilling in Midway by using the finest grains and time-honored methods to produce the finest finished whiskeys.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Fudge Kitchen - In business for over 50 years.

This week's build concept was all about having an Intelligence-centric Melee Combatant. On two opposite ends of the spectrum, we present a classically trained Dual-Wielding Elven Wizard who's nearly impossible to hit and Dwarven Tinker who uses science to put casters to shame and misfortune. Everyone's got a unique idea and cool plan for optimizing a tabletop RPG character build. But what if your parameters were a bit askew? Or what if you wanted to semi-optimize, but flavor it around a specific roleplay concept? Well friends, look no further! We give you "Twisted Builds"! What are Twisted Builds, you ask? We set up 10 simple rules to follow. Listen in on any Twisted Builds episode and get some interesting ideas for new characters down the road. Or, write in and tell us how we did it all wrong! The rules are simple. Establish a Theme. Declare a Concept. Impose a Twist. All characters are level 10 using Point-Buy. All races and classes are acceptable without explanation. All Tasha's Optional Rules can be used. No Homebrew unless it's semi-official on DnDBeyond. Multiclassing is allowed but must follow requirements for Ability Scores. No magic items unless the class somehow grants them. Any mundane items are allowed. All Subclasses can only ever be used up to a total of 10 levels. We want to showcase different builds. Established setting will be within the world we've been creating in other Workshops. We'll continue adding things to the world in future episodes! These builds are purely for fun and quirky concepts. They may be somewhat optimized, but no guarantees. That's it! Subscribe, leave a review, and tell all your friends! We'd also love to hear what you think about the show.

Please note that I there may be some adult content in this episode as I discuss different reasons for film ratings. The second half of this episode is purely subjective -- I fully expect my listeners to have differing opinions, and that's okay. These are just the guidelines I go by when choosing to show my kids certain movies. Welcome to season 4 of Life Through the Big Screen. Typically I've been keeping my seasons six episodes long, so being 4 seasons in isn't as impressive as it sounds. I do think that I'm going to start expanding the length of episodes per season eventually. I just love creating new introductions - and speaking of, which one has been your favorite so far? Give me some feedback. A little update about my personal life, because I let you in on it on my last solo episode: my open heart surgery is no longer scheduled for late in July - it's been pushed back to September or October. I'm not thrilled that it might overlap with the holidays - but it is what it is. It was pushed back because there's fluid in my lungs from possible COVID that needs to completely clear out before they cut me open. So I do appreciate that the doctors are taking extreme precautions. I also got a job! It's my dream job of marketing and content creation. It's for a super cool retirement firm who seems to always want to be on the cutting edge of unique ideas and new ways of reaching their target demographics. I start a week from the time of this recording. And if Zach, Dylan, and Larin are listening to this, my highest gratitude goes out to you for taking a chance on me.And thank you, listeners for continuing to take a chance on this podcast. I know your time is valuable and you dozens of other podcasts you could be listening to right now, so I am honored that your spending your time with me. I do my best with the tools I have available to bring you the best quality podcast I can. And with time I hope to continue to get better. I'm also open to hearing your feedback and any suggestions you may have, so feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment in Apple podcasts. As you know, I open up each season with me gabbing about a particular topic that I feel I want to discuss for a little bit. As you know my kids are seven and eight at the time of this recording and that means that they're becoming of age to start watching more movies that fall outside of the Disney catalogue. This also means that my wife and I can find more common ground on what we can show the kids - or at least that it's easier for her to allow more space for me to show them what I think might be appropriate, because they're no longer tiny children. They're growing kids, who, as long as they know what's on screen is fabricated with great skill and masterful imagery and film magic, they can take in what I allow to be placed in front of them. They know too that movies are meant to be vessels of enjoyment and pleasure. And Sarabeth knows that movies are my best way of connecting to the kids. The same way that Tim Taylor was obsessed with his tools and wanted to pass that love on to his boys, that's how I am with movies and my kids. It's also fun debating with them, for instance, which of the Star Wars movies are superior. My daughter claims that Kylo Ren is a great villain, but I get a little overzealous when I try to explain to her how he started off as a great character, but went downhill quickly as Disney executives started listening to the angry mobs rather than focusing on telling a great story, thus his character was ruined for time immortal. I'm looking at YOU Kathleen Kennedy and Ryan Johnson, and whosever idea it was to make Ray-lo a disgusting reality. But I do thank you on behalf of my daughter. Yesterday my son said that The Empire Strikes Back is his least favorite Star Wars movie. When I pressed him, he said it was because Yoda was boring. I'll be interested to see if and when his opinion changes on that. So what is the MPAA? You'll know it as soon as I say one color: Green. That's right, when you go the theater and that green screen with a bunch of random words nobody has ever read pops up on the screen - and if you were cool like me, you yelled "Green!" when you were in high school. The words state that the following preview - or trailer - has been approved for all audiences by the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA. These are the people who have been telling parents which movies they can or cannot take their kids to see. You already know by the title of my episode that I'm not going to speak very favorably about the MPAA, and I'll explain why they're full of crap, and always have been. But first, a little history on the MPAA. According to motionpicture.org, the MPAA was, and I quote: "Established in 1968, the film rating system provides parents with the information needed to determine if a film is appropriate for their children." This sounds like it had good intentions. "Ratings are determined by the Classification and Ratings Administration (CARA), via a board comprised of an independent group of parents."Before I read a little about the history of the MPAA, I'm going to breeze through a quick refresher course of what the individual rating are today: If a film is rated G, that means it's approved for general, or all, audiences: Nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children.A PG rated film stands for Parental Guidance. Where parents are "urged to give “parental guidance.” May contain some material parents might not like for their young children." A PG-13 film is not only the most common film rating, but it's also the newest. This means that parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13, so parents are urged to be cautious. An R-rated film means "Restricted." This type of fil
