Kevin Bruyneel confronts the chronic displacement of Indigeneity in the politics and discourse around race in American political theory and culture, arguing that the ongoing influence of settler-colonialism has undermined efforts to understand Indigenous politics while also hindering conversation around race itself. By reexamining major episodes, texts, writers, and memories of the political past from the seventeenth century to the present, Bruyneel reveals the power of settler memory at work in the persistent disavowal of Indigeneity.  In Settler Memory: The Disavowal of Indigeneity and the Politics of Race in the United States (University of North Carolina Press, 2021), he also shows how Indigenous and Black intellectuals have understood ties between racism and white settler memory, even as the settler dimensions of whiteness are frequently erased in our discourse about race, whether in conflicts over Indian mascotry or the white nationalist underpinnings of Trumpism. Envisioning a new political future, Bruyneel challenges readers to refuse settler memory and consider a third reconstruction that can meaningfully link antiracism and anticolonialism. John Cable will begin a teaching appointment at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in January 2022. He earned the Ph.D. in history at Florida State University in 2020.

Crushing Chaos with Law Firm Mentor podcast

I've seen commentary on social media lately where people are presupposing that they deserve the best in terms of acquiring employees and resentment about the fact that they're getting what they feel to be less than what they deserve.    When there's any type of distress in the marketplace is- there's almost always an inherent lack mindset that goes into that level of business development. But if the problem around you is lack, the solution is abundance.    When there's not enough, how do you create more than enough? Tune in and I'll show you! In this episode we discuss: Creating abundance versus falling into a lack mindset in times of economic retraction. Setting the standard for how you show up. Three questions to ask yourself to determine if you deserve the best. The importance of committing yourself to achieve your desired outcome.  Taking responsibility and controlling your attitude when life happens. The impact you're going to create by honoring your commitments.   Allison Bio:   Allison C. Williams, Esq., is Founder and Owner of the Williams Law Group, LLC, with offices in Short Hills and Freehold, New Jersey. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney and is the first attorney in New Jersey to become Board-Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in the field of Family Law.    Ms. Williams is an accomplished businesswoman. In 2017, the Williams Law Group won the LawFirm500 award, ranking 14th of the fastest growing law firms in the nation, as Ms. Williams grew the firm 581% in three years. Ms. Williams won the Silver Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year in 2017.  In 2018, Ms. Williams was voted as NJBIZ's Top 50 Women in Business and was designated one of the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners. In 2019, Ms. Williams won the Seminole 100 Award for founding one of the fastest growing companies among graduates of Florida State University.   In 2018, Ms. Williams created Law Firm Mentor, a business coaching service for lawyers.  She helps solo and small law firm attorneys grow their business revenues, crush chaos in business and make more money.  Through multi-day intensive business retreats, group and one-to-one coaching, and strategic planning sessions, Ms. Williams advises lawyers on all aspects of creating, sustaining and scaling a law firm business – and specifically, she teaches them the core foundational principles of marketing, sales, personnel management, communications and money management in law firms.  Contact Info:   The Four Agreements book - by Don Miguel Ruiz Text CONNECT at 908 292 3524 https://lawfirmmentor.net/speak-with-a-growth-strategist/  Contact Law Firm Mentor: Scheduler: https://meetme.so/LawFirmMentor     Snippets   00: 09: 35 (36 Seconds)  Are you saying to your team, I want you here in business casual and then you're showing up looking raggedy? You know, think about that. Think about how you are showing up for your clients. Are your clients getting the best version of you? Are your clients getting the version of you that that's prim and proper? Are, are your clients getting the version of you, that's smart and tenacious, that's zealous, that's engaged, or are you kind of half assing it or phoning it in? Right? Are you, are you just kind of doing the minimum to get people in the door?   00:17:43 (38 Seconds) So there's a whole lot that goes into the idea of honoring commitments. Your commitments are not just your commitments to, to agreements that you make, but it's also to really the agreement that you make with yourself as to who you're going to be in this world and what you're going to achieve in this world, how much you're going to accomplish, how many people you're going to help. What is the impact you're going to create, right? When we think about that, when we think about am I creating the impact that I want to in this world? Then it becomes a lot easier for you to say to another person, you made a commitment that you were going to show up in this office in a certain way.

Snapshots of the Soul: Photo-Poetic Encounters in Modern Russian Culture (Cornell UP, 2021) considers how photography has shaped Russian poetry from the early twentieth century to the present day. Drawing on theories of the lyric and the elegy, the social history of technology, and little-known archival materials, Molly Thomasy Blasing offers close readings of poems by Boris Pasternak, Marina Tsvetaeva, Joseph Brodsky, and Bella Akhmadulina, as well as by the late and post-Soviet poets Andrei Sen-Sen'kov, Arkadii Dragomoshchenko, and Kirill Medvedev, to understand their fascination with the visual language, representational power, and metaphorical possibilities offered by the camera and the photographic image. Within the context of long-standing anxieties about the threat that visual media pose to literary culture, Blasing finds that these poets were attracted to the affinities and tensions that exist between the lyric or elegy and the snapshot. Snapshots of the Soul reveals that at the core of each poet's approach to writing the photograph is the urge to demonstrate the superior ability of poetic language to capture and convey human experience. Molly T. Blasing holds degrees in Slavic Languages and Literatures from Harvard University (AB, 2002) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (MA, 2006; PHD, 2014). After teaching at Florida State University, Wellesley College, and Oberlin College, she joined the faculty of the University of Kentucky as Assistant Professor of Russian Studies in 2014 and was promoted to Associate Professor in July 2021.  Steven Seegel is Professor of Slavic and Eurasian Studies at The University of Texas at Austin.

Who does what in your law firm? There are many different roles in law firms, and I think most people conceptually understand the distinction between a lawyer and a paralegal and a legal assistant and a file clerk.   There are three categories of behavior required in every law firm, finders, minders and grinders. I'm sure you've heard of these before, but I wanted to give a perceptual frame for them that might be a little different than what you've heard before.   It's so important as a solo law firm owner that you divorce yourself from at least some of these roles.   Tune in to learn how! In this episode we discuss: The roles in a law firm and the three categories that you require, being Grinders, Minders and Finders. Recognizing the characteristics from each category. How solo law firm owners also require some degree of compliance for themselves. The importance of creating enterprise goodwill that will carry your business forward. Being a solo lawyer and its challenges. Considering the time you are spending in each of these categories.   Allison Bio:   Allison C.

Very good friend of mine decided that she was going to phase out of practicing law in the way that she is. She doesn't, she no longer has her law firm open, and we had a lot of conversations about what she wanted to do with it. Did she want to sell it? Did you just want to close it? Like, what? What is the process? And so just kind of being alongside her as she was going through that process, I learned a lot about valuation of law firms. Now, as a matrimonial attorney and family law attorney for many years, I of course knew about valuations of businesses and periodically we would have a client who owned a law firm.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we here at the Law Firm Mentor have been very busy preparing for a new year! Enjoy this Replay of one of my most favorite, thought provoking episodes.   I have seen quite a bit of commentary in the Law Firm Mentor movement about hiring lately and mental blocks to hiring. I feel many develop those mental blocks to hiring because of the problems that they encounter with employees once they are on-board. So, today I wanted to give you a framework for thinking about the failure of your employees.   We know that getting the wrong people in in the first place is almost always going to ensure that you won't be successful with your employees. But do you have someone who you can remediate or do you need to start the process over again? This framework will help you remove all of the guesswork and make a clear plan.   Tune in! In this episode we discuss: Three reasons that employees fail. The challenge of understanding an employee's job when you haven't performed that job. How attitude influences the ability to fit into a position role and office environment. Understanding the reasons an employee may not comply with your directions without jumping to your own immediate conclusions. How systems can help set the framework for employee success. The importance of training and following up to verify that there is understanding.   Allison Bio:   Allison C. Williams, Esq., is Founder and Owner of the Williams Law Group, LLC, with offices in Short Hills and Freehold, New Jersey. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney and is the first attorney in New Jersey to become Board-Certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in the field of Family Law.    Ms. Williams is an accomplished businesswoman. In 2017, the Williams Law Group won the LawFirm500 award, ranking 14th of the fastest growing law firms in the nation, as Ms. Williams grew the firm 581% in three years. Ms. Williams won the Silver Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year in 2017.  In 2018, Ms. Williams was voted as NJBIZ's Top 50 Women in Business and was designated one of the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners.

So that means you could very easily sternly punish or ultimately terminate someone who is not complying for reasons that could easily have been ameliorated if you had been willing to be open to have a conversation.   00:18:12 (43 Seconds) They haven't learned from you that the way you want it done is non-negotiable. So I don't say this to mean that you need to have a stern corrective conversation where you get your finger out and stick it at them and say this is non-negotiable because I'm the boss. I'm talking about an error of how we systematize. OK, so what is really, really important when we talk about employees is that there be a cultural imperative for how we do things. Even if you have not set that tone, had that conversation reorganized activity around that conversation, your employees are still picking up from the ether how things are happening in this business.

The paradox of Progressivism continues to fascinate more than one hundred years on. Democratic but elitist, emancipatory but coercive, advanced and assimilationist, Progressivism was defined by its contradictions. In Progressive New World: How Settler Colonialism and Transpacific Exchange Shaped American Reform (Harvard UP, 2019), Marilyn Lake points to the significance of turn-of-the-twentieth-century exchanges between American and Australasian reformers who shared racial sensibilities, along with a commitment to forging an ideal social order. The book demonstrates that race and reform were mutually supportive as Progressivism became the political logic of settler colonialism. Settlers defined themselves in “New World” terms—both against Old World feudalism and the indigenous peoples that they considered backward and primitive.

Why Listen: I had intended to spend the bulk of my conversation with Devin talking about growth and marketing because he has some great ideas. But we ended up going down a different path. Devin runs a company called StraightHemp, where they sell different hemp-related products. In this interview, we talked about CBD and other things. And he also is an advocate for psychedelics. Devin is a rare breed of person. He's building a company and making money, but that's not what's driving him. Devin is very community-driven. He's very much about making the world a better place. I know that sounds trite. But it just really I found our interview touching in that sense. As an entrepreneur, it was helpful to see an example of someone who is so purpose-driven. About Devin: Devin Alvarez is the Founder and CEO of StraightHemp. Using a proprietary extraction method to power their leading Straight Hemp family of products, they are positioned to become a top seller in the natural products channel.

Senator Max Cleland was a true American hero. One of the finest, most selfless leaders of our time. He was a titan. And his tremendous impact was second only to his huge heart. Even in these last few difficult months before he died, he was a fighter—and a happy warrior. And Max's passing comes the week of Veterans Day. Max defined what it means to be an American veteran. And what it means for veterans to continue to serve after they take off the uniform. And after tragedy. He's the godfather of modern veterans affairs and advocacy--and he's forever stronger at the broken places.  In this Veterans Day special episode, our host and Army veteran Paul Rieckhoff reflects on the life and legacy of his friend, mentor and personal hero, Max Cleland. And in order to even begin to properly tell Max's story, we hear from a man who knew him better than almost anyone else. Another hero, another mentor, another Vietnam veteran, another son of the south, another true American hero: Shad Meshad. Shad has known Max for over 45 years. And in this time of mourning, and reflection, and especially this Veterans Day, he is the person we most need to hear from.  They call him the Mad Man. For more than five decades, National Veterans Foundation Founder and President Shad Meshad has been one of the most important veterans advocates in the world. He is a therapist for Veterans and an advocate for Veterans' rights. After getting his master's degree in psychiatric social work from Florida State University, he enlisted in the army in 1970 and served as a counselor for U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. That was years before we knew this was really a thing. He'll tell you more about that, the Max Cleland most people never knew, and all the lessons we can all learn from Max's amazing life.

Welcome to our final episode of the Power Your Inner Runner podcast series in partnership with Nike Running and Rebel, gosh that's gone so quickly! I feel so lucky to have been able to pick the brains of three amazing Nike athletes and Olympians on everyone's behalf – the tips and tricks they've shared have enhanced my training so much and I hope they've done the same for you. Whether you're a running beginner or a seasoned pro, they've jam packed so much universal advice into these chats that will be invaluable in the lead up to Melbourne Marathon and beyond. But even if you're not interested in running in the least, I think all three of these women still have fascinating pathyays that are empowering, motivating and just a joy to listen to.So, we've heard from Catriona on mastering your mindset and Sinead on distance, determination and defying the doubters but I still have some pretty specific questions left around FUEL. What and when does one eat and drink before, during and after a race? How lucky are we to have as our third and final guest Linden Hall, a 1500m Olympian, Nike athlete and VERY conveniently, also a qualified dietitian who headed to America after high school to get the college experience at Florida State University! Today we get into the guts of our guts and, again, in the few runs I've done since recording this episode, Linden has dramatically improved my running experience.As well as the practical stuff, we also hear how Linden went from being spellbound watching the Atlanta Olympics as a five-year-old to actually making it to the Olympics first in Rio and then again this year in Tokyo. It gave me goosebumps to hear Linden explain how it felt to actually qualify after dreaming of the moment since childhood and working so hard to become the fastest 1500m runner in Australian history. Even cooler? She got faster and faster in Tokyo from the heat to the semi-final and then the overall final where she finished in 6th place with a personal best. So we also get some fabulous tips on improving speed and why you often don't do so by running your competition speed but by doing all kinds of other runs instead – mind blown!As I've been recording these episodes, I've really been reminded of how powerful sport can be – I mean I get so teary during the Olympics for the way it connects people transcending language, boundaries and geography. Even on a very local, personal level, I've been reminded how transformative sport can be which is a big tenet of Rebel's Sport is Calling campaign. If you've been out of the sporting loop for a while, sport can be such an antidote to life's challenges whether you have professional or competitive aspirations or not so I hope some of you hear sport calling your name again and get motivated to move those bodies. Also, just a reminder, in case you were worried, the episodes aren't sequential, so if you're only tuning in now don't worry each segment stands alone and you can listen in whatever order you like.+ Follow Linden here+ Announcements on Insta at @spoonful_of_sarah+ Join our Facebook community here+ Subscribe to not miss out on the next instalment of YAY!

In today's episode I talk about law firm scholarships. Recently, I remember seeing a post where someone raised the question about how to create a law firm scholarship. This individual had seen a lot about them and thought, “Hey, this seems like a really cool idea, and I want to help our local high school community.” So, in essence this scholarship would be a philanthropic tool used to help this person's small town. I loved that idea!    I'd like to share with that person and then ultimately share with you guys some of the thoughts around these scholarships and how to use them for the greatest good in your law firm.   Tune in to learn more about creating impactful law firm scholarships! In this episode we discuss: Creating a law firm scholarship. How creating a scholarship can impact SEO, driving traffic to your website. Partnering with local high schools and community colleges to promote your scholarship. The benefit of being highlighted as a provider of an asset to the local or national community. Considering the rules for your scholarship and the demographic profile required for applicants. Determining how to verify compliance to the guidelines for spending the scholarship money. Sharing your presentation of the scholarship on social media and everywhere possible.   Allison Bio:   Allison C.

And one of the things that was astounding to me was the fact that there was an entire service dedicated to helping high school students learn what scholarships were available. And I said, well, wouldn't we get that information when she gets into the different colleges? And the answer was yes and no.

We invited Ms Dana Anthony, a survivor and victor from Domestic Violence. According to National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (just a sample of statistics on Domestic Violence): On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, contraction of sexually transmitted diseases, etc. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. This includes a range of behaviors (e.g. slapping, shoving, pushing) and in some cases might not be considered "domestic violence." 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence (e.g. beating, burning, strangling) by an intimate partner in their lifetime. On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide. Only 34% of people who are injured by intimate partners receive medical care for their injuries. Source (and MORE statistics) Beyond these statistics, Dana shares her personal story. In Part 1 of this story, she sits down with our host, Christopher J Harris and shares honestly and transparently about being married to her abuser and how she navigated getting free and back on her feet.

Recent graduates grieve the loss of community, question their place in the world and struggle to find meaningful work. It can be shocking to discover that college did not fully prepare you for the challenges you now face. "It's much rougher than I thought. I thought things would just play out, and they didn't.

Today I am talking about crushing the chaos in your client communications. I want to direct your attention to the idea of automating as many of your client communications as possible. I realize that automating client communications can be a cringe-worthy topic for many lawyers. There is a belief system that says, “Hey, I can't automate communications! There's a relationship component that's really where those increased referrals come from.”    Yes, client communication gives you an opportunity to be a rock star, but lawyers are learning that there's a differentiation that comes from having a really solid communications process for your clients.   Tune in to find out exactly what the difference is. In this episode we discuss: Automating as many of your client communications as possible. How creating a drip campaign is an opportunity for you to eliminate confusion for your clients.  Instilling more confidence in your clients by building processes, systems, and structure. Adding personal connection in a way that doesn't require personal activity. Ensuring that you are communicating with your client. Adding value by overdelivering through additional support materials and education to possibly generate additional or future work.   Allison Bio:   Allison C.

One, helping them to feel so supported by the level of education, information, guidance, and support you're offering that you're offering something in excess of what is minimally required by your retainer agreement. OK? You should always be looking to overdeliver for the value you're charging a client. Second, think about it as a way to generate more work from the existing client, right?

In today's episode, I'm talking about firing your family from your law firm.  I know I have talked about the need for us to really have very clear boundaries with those that we employ so that we can get optimal performance out of our team, and how that is particularly necessary when you have family members in your law firm. Today, I want to expound upon that a little bit because I know that there are several people out there who started off their law firm not having a whole lot of revenue, not having a whole lot of clients. As a result, they had their spouse, or another family member, come into their law firm to provide some much-needed assistance.    I don't want to say that working with family never works. There is definitely a positive element to having family members in your law firm. But I want to talk about, in particular, the challenge of firing your family because so many people I know are contemplating that, and/or have already gone down that road- and there have been ripple effects.  In this episode we discuss: The challenge associated with having family work in your law firm. Setting boundaries when you add another person to your culture. Risking a claim if you treat employees differently. How different circumstances can determine the manner in which you fire someone. Remaining in the context of the employer when terminating a relative.   Allison Bio:   Allison C.

She's probably not going to say that if the new girl is your mom right, or if it is, if the relationship is the other way around. If you have had mom here for years and someone comes in, that person is going to have a different attitude toward your relatives than they might have toward just any other employee. And this doesn't have to be inherently bad, but it tends to be... not universal. But it tends to be that when somebody comes into a workplace, they are always looking for the hierarchy, right?

In today's episode I talk about law firm retreats. For me, this is a fun topic because I love talking about what we can do to up-level our law firms.    Even though I spend a lot of time talking about solving the problems of our law firms, I know that there are plenty of people who listen to this podcast and already have a fully systematized law firm. These firms aren't necessarily perfect or running at top speed, but they're established enough for law firm owners to feel comfortable enough to begin planning how to take their firms to the next level.     I've been asked recently how to create a law firm retreat, who should be involved, and how to make it a great experience. So, that's what I'll cover today. In this episode we discuss: How retreats can up-level your firm. Being very clear on the purpose of your retreat. Make your retreat an experience to re-energizing of themselves and their community. Choosing wisely a location for your team to have a nice experience. How important is it to keep people engaged, active, and participating during the retreat. The facilitator you are going to bring depends on what you choose to convey.   Allison Bio:   Allison C.

Now there's some logistical challenges with us having live retreats is that we had to move ourselves on to having a virtual experience. And a lot of people, after they started using Zoom for the first time, a lot of lawyers were not using Zoom, except for the occasional meeting here or there, but they certainly didn't live on Zoom. It became a real struggle to try to tell someone that you're going to have a good experience when you sit on a virtual platform for hours, and hours, and hours on end.

During this walk, Kala reminds us why it is imperative we share our story. A native of St. Petersburg, Kala started her educational career at the University of Memphis before transferring to Florida State University. While at FSU, she earned her Bachelor's degree in International Affairs and competed on the track and field team. During the 2015 NCAA Division I Track and Field championships, my Soror shocked the world and won the 400-meter national championship out of lane 8. Yes, she's fast and yes is a proud initiate of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. So of course, Kala turned pro and competed as a professional athlete, representing Team USA. After a couple years, she pivoted and started running in her evolved purpose. She earned her MBA from Saint Leo University and took the digital marketing and brand strategy industry by storm. She currently works in Media and Entertainment at The Happiest Place on Earth, otherwise known as Disney! Kala is a digital marketing professional, content enthusiast, and national champion. Most importantly, she is a friend who is committed to paying it forward through both mentorship and sponsorship.

The discovery of 21,000-23,000-year-old human footprints at White Sands National Park in New Mexico is one of the most exciting developments in the study of the deep past in recent years. But do these footprints hold up to real scrutiny? And if they're real, how do they change our understanding of the first people in the Americas? I asked two experts on the earliest inhabitants of the Americas what they thought of this incredible new evidence: Dr. Jessi Halligan, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Florida State University, and Dr. Shane Miller, Associate Professor of Anthropology at Mississippi State University. Both have extensive experience on the topic, and help us understand precisely what these footprints tell us about the human past in North and South America.Patrick's book is now available!
