Today I'm talking to Mastodon CEO Eugen Rochko. Mastodon is the open-source, decentralized competitor to Twitter, and it's where a lot of Twitter users have gone in this, our post-Elon era. The idea is that you don't join a single platform that one company controls, you join a server, and that server can show you content from users across the entire network. If you decide you don't like the people who run your server, or you think they're moderating content too strictly, you can leave, and take your followers and social graph with you. Think about it like email and you'll get it – if you don't like Gmail, you can switch to something else, but you don't have to quit email entirely as a concept. Now if you are like me, you hear the words open-source and decentralized, and then the word CEO, and you think – wait, why does the decentralized open standard have a CEO? The whole point is that no single person or company is in charge, right? Well, welcome to the wild world of open-source governance. It's a riot, my friends – you're going to hear Eugen and I say the phrase benevolent dictator for life in dead seriousness, because that's how a lot of these projects are run. Of course, we also talk about money, and structure – Mastodon doesn't make a lot of money, and Eugen is figuring out how to build a structure that scale past just a handful of people — but keep that in mind, actually. This tiny mostly volunteer labor of love might very well be the future of social networking, and, if you believe the hype about activitypub, might have some part in the future of the web. That's pretty exciting, even if things are seem a little messy in the moment.

For most of our lives, we've been taught that viruses make us sick. But there is important evidence that has been overlooked by both virologists and the public. Today, Alec Zeck, the Executive Director and Founder of the Way Forward, breaks down viruses. He reviews the history of virology, the assumptions behind the science, and explains where we've gone wrong in our understanding of what causes ill health. His conclusions, based on his extensive research, paint a very different picture of the "pandemic" of recent years and offer insights for the days ahead. This is an episode that may challenge what many of us thought we knew about viruses. Visit Alec's website: The Way Forward Become a member of the Weston A.

To the cartels, sex-slavery is a business; every person watching pornography is a possible customer, and every child is a potential product. Common myths, like “it's only ‘at-risk' kids the traffickers target, “it doesn't happen to good families”, “I would know if my kid was being groomed” are just that: myths. Becky Rassmussen, Executive Director of CallToFreedom.Org joins us to dispel the myths and to arm everyone in the Podcast family to help stop what God sees are an egregious sin on behalf of the traffickers, as well as those who enable them.

She has served on the Board of Directors for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, was a founding Director on the Board of the 2LT Richard W. Collins III Foundation, and was the first and only woman on the Board of Trustees for Wentworth Military Academy. Jaslow is a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a charter member of the National Parks Conservation Assn.'s Veterans Council, and was named both an Aspen Institute Ideas Festival Scholar and Aspen Security Forum Scholar. For her military service, Jaslow's awards include the Bronze Star Medal and the Army Commendation Medal with a Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster. Allison Jaslow is the CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, an Iraq War Veteran, and a dedicated public servant. Nationally, Jaslow is recognized as a leading voice on the impact of the military-civilian divide on our political system and as an authority on the unique challenges faced by women in the military. A former Army Captain, Jaslow is also a seasoned political and communications strategist, serving on the staff of several Members of Congress, and as a White House communications aide. She's a former Executive Director of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), is a co-Founder of Operation Liberty and has recently served as an Adjunct Professor of the Practice at Duke University. When she was previously Executive Director of IAVA, Jaslow led a national campaign to increase recognition of, and support for, women veterans. The “She Who Borne the Battle” campaign boldly targeted the Department of Veterans Affairs' gender exclusive motto and put the needs of women veterans on the map – and in the headlines. Jaslow also oversaw the organization's successful campaigns to block over $4 billion in cuts to veteran education benefits, and to reverse the Defense Department's efforts to claw back bonuses paid to California National Guardsman. Jaslow was instrumental in orchestrating the first-ever “Commander in Chief Forum” in partnership with NBC, ensuring issues important to the military community remained front and center during the 2016 presidential campaign. The forum drew over 15 million viewers. Professional background: Prior to joining IAVA, Jaslow built a reputation as a leader, trusted advisor and innovative political strategist in Washington and on campaigns across the country. She served as Chief of Staff to Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, after leading Bustos' successful campaign to unseat an incumbent Member of Congress in what has since become a bellwether region for the success of both political parties. Jaslow also served as a communications aide in the White House, as Press Secretary for former Virginia Senator and decorated Vietnam veteran Jim Webb and in leadership roles for various other Members of Congress. Jaslow has twice testified before Congress and made appearances on national news programs including NBC's Today Show, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show, and the CBS Evening News, where she speaks on issues ranging from national politics to our national security and the military-civilian divide. She has contributed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN Opinion and Marie Claire in addition to other national publications. Jaslow has also worked closely with the entertainment industry, leading impact partnerships with several noteworthy films including Warner Brothers' Dunkirk, Netflix's War Machine, and Blood Stripe, an independent film which depicts a woman Marine's transition from combat to civilian life.

It was a rare sight in the LA County city of Montebello on Wednesday after a tornado ripped through the city, damaging 11 buildings. One person was injured. As the latest atmospheric river ravaged the state this week, some communities are left with more mess to clean up. Farming communities have been especially impacted by this year's wet weather -- from Planada in Merced County to Pajaro in Monterey County. And this will likely have a major impact on farmworkers. Guest: Sarait Martinez, Executive Director, Centro Binacional para el Desarrollo Indí-gena Oaxaqueño Bids are due on Friday to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for Silicon Valley Bank's assets, and liabilities.

Data from The Prison Policy Initiative shows a recent rise in the number of women and girls in confinement. "Fueled by more than five decades of a misguided and failing “war on drugs”, the US leads the world in the incarceration of women. Today, more than half of American states have legalized or decriminalized marijuana. Even as it might seem that the war on drugs is drawing to a close, its brutal policies continue to create havoc in the lives of American women," said The Takeaway host Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, author of Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America, and the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair of Politics and International Affairs at Wake Forest University. "The intersection of gender, poverty and incarceration is not race neutral," and women's pathways to confinement often exist at the intersection of mental illness, trauma, and gender-based violence. Black women make up about 29% of the women who are incarcerated in this country. Hispanic women make up about 14%. American Indian and Alaska Native make about up about 2.5%. These are dramatic overrepresentations of women of color in the criminal legal system in comparison to their make-up of the U.S. population. 80% of women in jail and 58% in prisons are parents. More than half of the 76,000 locked away from families, children, work and home are awaiting trial, much less a conviction. Harsh sentencing for low level drug offenses and the inability to afford bail are primary causes of women's prolonged incarceration. $10,000 dollars is a typical bail, but the Prison Policy Initiative found that the median annual income for women awaiting trial in jails was about $11,071 dollars. "The legal system is much more likely to be punitive towards people of color and poor people. I think that that's an important dimension to this as well, and poverty plays a critical role in this," said Mike Wessler, Communications Director for the Prison Policy Initiative. "Whenever I'm talking about this, I often think about a tweet sent by law enforcement in New York City during the pandemic where they proudly boasted a photo of a bunch of diapers and formula, and they rightfully got pretty significant backlash for that," he told The Takeaway. Law enforcements were pictured with haul of diapers, formula, and other products worth $1800, closing 23 warrants; Parents on social media horrified by kids' items. February 2022. Tweet was later deleted. (The Independent) For Mike, that defined a common factor of women's incarceration in the U.S.: women are often arrested and put in jail because they're trying to meet the daily needs of themselves and the people that they care for. "Women and girls are much more likely to be incarcerated for drug and property offenses. They're much less likely to be charged with more violent crimes, things like murder and manslaughter and kidnapping and the like. And I think there's a couple of explanations for this. Property and drug crimes are often crimes related to poverty and crimes related to addiction," Wessler told The Takeaway. "Ultimately, the enforcement of drug laws in this country as a criminal offense is a public policy choice. It could very easily be treated as a public health issue. We use things like treatment and counseling to help people who have substance use disorder get the care they need," said Mike Wessler. He added, "We saw poverty numbers drop during the pandemic and this is related to why we saw lower incarceration rates, particularly of women during the pandemic. Women had more resources at their disposal to meet those needs. They [mothers] were receiving assistance from the federal government for their children." Stay-at-home orders and a slowing down of the court system are also said to be factors. But as courts return to pre-pandemic operation, women and girls' incarceration rates have climbed at a pace faster than that of boys and men. Black women and girls are hit disproportionately, making up 29% of U.S. prisons while only making up about 13% of the U.S. population. The National Black Women's Justice Institute (NBWJI) researches, elevates, and educates the public on the overcriminalization of Black women and girls, and NBJWI is conducting research on Black women's policing, health, and incarceration. Sydney McKinney, Executive Director of NBWJI, joined the Takeaway to discuss the current data surrounding Black women and girls' incarceration and what healing-centered alternatives can look like.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (03/23/2023): 3:05pm- On Saturday, former President Donald Trump revealed that he expects to be arrested for hush money payments disturbed to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016—though, no arrest has yet been made. In his latest National Review report, Andrew C. McCarthy writes: “Turns out the state grand jury in Manhattan, which is investigating former president Trump's Stormy Daniels escapade, will not convene this afternoon. The grand jurors, whose proceedings occur in afternoons…had been on ‘standby,' waiting for prosecutors to tell them whether they'd be needed today. It is unclear whether, in keeping them on standby, Bragg's office contemplated presenting testimony from one or more additional witnesses, or asking the grand jurors to vote on an indictment… Based on experience, moreover, we can deduce that Bragg has misgivings because he has already moth-balled the investigation at least once, over a year ago. He resuscitated it under pressure from anti-Trump progressives and a pair of disgruntled prosecutors who quit over his refusal to move forward.” You can read more about McCarthy's assessment of Trump's supposedly pending indictment here: https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/whats-going-on-in-braggs-grand-jury-investigation-of-trump/ 3:35pm- While appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Colorado Magistrate Judge Kato Crews—whom President Joe Biden has nominated to the U.S. District Court of Colorado—could not answer Senator John Kennedy's (R-LA) request to define the legal term “Brady Motion.” 3:40pm- Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Robert J.

During the hearing, Chew claimed that ByteDance—TikTok's parent company—is not controlled by the Chinese government. During a particularly intense exchange, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) accused TikTok of being used to “spy” on American journalists. At one point, while being questioned by Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX), Chew seemingly conceded that the Chinese government has the ability to manipulate content on TikTok, though he vehemently denied that it has ever happened. 4:20pm- While being questioned by Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA), TikTok CEO Shou Chew was unable to say how many children have died due to dangerous “challenges” being promoted on TikTok. 4:45pm- According to a report from Jackie Roman of NJ.com, “[t]he school board of Hunterdon Central Regional High School is launching an investigation into a Twitter account with transphobic content reportedly owned by one of its board members” The account allegedly misgendered United States Secretary of Health Rachel Levine—a biological man who identifies as female.

Meredith Kopit Levien is the CEO of The New York Times, which is perhaps the most famous journalism organization in the world, and certainly one of America's most complicated companies. The Times is 172 years old, and has only recently become a force on the internet. It's hard to remember, but back in 2014 and ‘15, people thought the Times was doomed — that it would be replaced by BuzzFeed and Vice and Vox. Instead, the company has undergone a radical and sometimes painful public transformation, and emerged as something closer to Netflix or Spotify – a subscription business with a huge investment in product and engineering. Meredith has led a lot of that change, and in particular, she's led the charge in turning a Times subscription into much more than paying for news – NYT Cooking and Games are hit apps, and of course she bought Wordle last year in a bit of a coup. We talked about that structure, how Meredith intends to appeal to a broader audience with all those products when the country is basically divided in half politically and one half doesn't care for the Times at all, and about platforms and growth. And like all media organizations, the Times has a complex relationship with Google, so we talked about that, too.

One in five Americans welcomed a new dog to their family during the first 14 months of the pandemic. But in the aftermath of job loss, inflation, and a little less work from home -- many of those dogs have lost their forever home. Carolyn Mossberger is Executive Director of the West Suburban Humane Society in Downers Grove, and she's on a mission to change that. In this episode of the Crisis Cast, Lissa & Thom explore some of the harsh numbers that face young pups. Only 10% of dogs born will find a permanent home. Around 3.9 million dogs are abandoned or given up to shelters each year. Carolyn and her team believe we can reduce those numbers with education -- and community programs that engage kids. How do we inspire that next generation of vets, and why do pit bulls get such an undeserved bad reputation? The answers to those questions and more when you click play.
What you believe is important, but what role does faith really have in our relationships. Is it a deal breaker if two people don't share the same faith? What does it actually mean, when someone says, "equally yoked". What should people look for when they say their Faith is important to them? Can it be used to restore relationships and overcome many of the challenges we experience on a daily basis. In this episode, Dr. Nic Hardy is joined by Licensed Therapist, Rashad Skinner (LCSW).

Former President Donald Trump expects to soon be indicted in Manhattan by District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The case alleges that a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in exchange for her signing a non-disclosure agreement during the 2016 presidential campaign would qualify as a criminal campaign finance violation. Defenders of President Trump have claimed this is a weaponization of the justice system, accusing Bragg of arbitrarily elevating the record-keeping error to a felony. Former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District of New York and FOX News Contributor Andy McCarthy joins the Rundown to discuss what charges the former President could face, the politics surrounding the issue, and what's important to know about the ongoing investigations.

“So for me being born in a place like Naples helped me absorb and to be constantly open and curious about other cultures, simply because they were part of my own culture. So it's a challenging city, I must say. And it's incredible how you more easily communicate with other people when you are in a place that you feel is a public place, but it belongs to you. It belongs to everyone. It's a space for the community. So this was the first lesson that I learned studying architecture because then you start to read the places in a more organized, scientific way. And I think maybe this dimension passed into my DNA.So from my point of view, a prize is not just to establish the most beautiful building, the most expensive building, or the tallest building in the world. It's rather to foster the discussion to bring forward critical points to be discussed. To bring forward contradictions, to really enhance the discussion about what is relevant for our society or for society in a specific moment.So this, for me, is the role of a prize, to highlight critical issues and to foster the discussion, to face them, and to find solutions, to find new paths. So in the case of the Pritzker Prize, the mission has been very clear since the very beginning.

Imagine a time when your ability to get a raise was not based on merit, but on whether your importance to your family merited it. That's what Heather Flynn faced early in her career, as did countless other women who did the same work as their male counterparts but were told they would be paid less money since they weren't the head of the household. You will learn:Sometimes, it's the childhood experience of being excluded that sparks a passion for inclusion.Title IX is an important part of women's history, and is the US federal civil rights law that prohibits gender-based discrimination in any school or other educational program that receives federal funds.The gains made from others years of activism are easily lost should we forget our history.(Listen HERE to Pulitzer Prize-winning Journalist Maria Henson share how she took the system to task on behalf of domestic abuse survivors in the previous episode.)BIO: Heather Flynn is a philanthropist and retired educator whose lengthy career began in education, and continued with her serving on the Anchorage School Board, the Anchorage Assembly, and as the Executive Director of The Alaska Women's Resource Center and Abused Women's Aid in Crisis.

The Not Your Average Lives Podcast
EP312: Today's guest is Tiphany Kane, who I refer to as a Podcasting Dynamo, because she has not just one but THREE podcasts! I asked her to be on the show because she's a great role model of living a sparked second half, as well as a fantastic example of how you can find your way to a more passionate existence in spite of the hardships or lack of support you may have. Tiphany has certainly made up for lost time, creating her own company, KaSa Media Productions which allows her to bring her passion for the art of the spoken word to people who need help finding their voice. She's a coach, public speaker, podcast producer, videography director and is the Executive Director of Sonic Bloom Podcast Awards. Tiphany also hosts the Radical Audacity in Love & Life, Diet Riot Sweat Repeat, and Mastering the Podcaster Mindset podcasts. "You are just too passionate." were the words she heard from a supervisor explaining why she was not selected for a promotion she was qualified for. Although these words stung, they were the words she needed to hear to make the necessary career change that would take her down a much more purpose-filled path. At age 49 she says: "Life is just beginning for me! I am lit up with creativity, options, ideas, and possibility." And she wants you to know if your brightness is being dulled, know that it is never too late to find your passion and purpose.

Friends, We had an amazing podcast interview with Jay Lowder, where he shared his personal story of how God saved him from suicide in an unexpected way. Jay's roommate was the instrument that God used to prevent his suicide due to severe depression, and this event greatly marked his life, leading him to form Jay Lowder Harvest Ministries. During their conversation, Jay talked about his journey through depression and how difficult it was for him to share it with others. He also spoke about the stigma experienced by Christians and society as a whole towards mental health problems, and the need for churches to support and listen to people who have mental health problems. It's time for us to leave behind the idea that mental health problems are a result of a lack of prayer or not being close enough to God. We must acknowledge that it is a real problem, and there are many teenagers and adults struggling with the idea of suicide. Jay also shared some warning signs that we can look out for in people who are going through suicidal thoughts. What we need is accessibility, not judgment. We must be willing to listen, support, and encourage people who are going through mental health issues and struggling with suicidal thoughts. Let's be the hands and feet of Christ in reaching out to those who are hurting and in need. Jay Lowder is founder and president of Jay Lowder Harvest Ministries, an organization dedicated to reaching diverse groups of people with the message of Jesus Christ. Through his ministry, Lowder travels around the world providing a message of hope to the hurting. Drawing from personal experience, Lowder is committed to reach those who struggle in everyday life. At 21, Lowder turned away from God and headed toward a life of destruction, eventually reasoning that his life was no longer worth living. One fateful day, Lowder considered suicide with a pistol at his temple; however, his attempt came to an abrupt halt when his roommate unexpectedly walked through the door. Sensing God spared his life to fulfill a purpose, Lowder began a search for truth, which culminated at a Sunday night Christian gathering where he committed his life to Christ. Soon after, he attended a youth event where he witnessed hundreds of teens respond to the call to accept Jesus Christ. It was there he realized God was calling him to spend the rest of his life proclaiming his personal faith story and helping others find God's purpose for their life. Since the call to full-time ministry in 1989, Lowder has participated in more than 500 church-wide events, rallies and conferences, and has been invited to speak to numerous groups including NFL teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers. Additionally, he developed the nationally acclaimed school assembly “Crossroads,” which has been presented to 2 million students nationwide, as well as the national television show, “The Darkest Hour,” featuring raw and compelling stories of individuals who have found their way out of the pit of defeat by discovering a purpose for living.He resides in Wichita Falls, Texas, with his wife, Melissa, whom he married in 1993,and their three children Lane, Kayley Faith and Graham.
