The new season is almost here. With that slowing down we continue to reflect. With self-care, fitness and meditation we think we are going to find "control" in our lives. As we continue in our practice we realize how far from true that is. Simultaneously, our breath, deep-breathing, focusing on our breath is something we can "control". Forcing our nervous system and organs to slow down. There is a meditation at the end of this episode all about your breath.

This show is totally heartbreaking but equally powerful. Zach Drew and Josh Peck discuss the radical assault that has been plaguing our children for almost two decades. An NBC News report from 2012 has resurfaced showing just how far society has degraded in terms of radical activism and the indoctrination of our children in only a little more than ten years. You'll see firsthand how these innocent children are being coached to believe and accept the most outlandish things, all for the approval and love of their parents. Children are being sacrificed on the altar of parental social status and attention. It has gone on for far too long. Please share this video far and wide because there isn't any other topic more important than protecting the lives of the most innocent among us: our children. ********** If you would like to donate, just follow this link: https://www.zachdrewshow.com/donate/ and hit the bright orange “Donate” button!

In this podcast we spend a lot of time diving into different element of your MBA application: your essays, your recommendations, your scores, your grades, and so many other things. But it is also critically important—especially as you near the end of your application process—to take a step back to review all these different elements of your application to make sure that they fit together as a cohesive whole. Think about these different application elements as chapters in a book. While you want each chapter to be compelling in its own stand-alone way – your MAIN GOAL is for these different pieces to function together as an OVERALL NARRATIVE about you, you who are, what your goals are, and what you will bring to the school and to the world after graduation. To this end, this podcast offers specific tips to help make your overall application narrative as compelling as possible including: Working through a “story mapping” excercise before your start your application, Forcing yourself to think through—and pressure test—your short and long term goals EARLY in your application process, Creating your own “MBA soundbite”, Stepping back and reading each element of your application and thinking carefully about how they fit together, including: Your resume Your essays Your recommendations Your data forms Your MBA interview prep Finally, thinking about how all of these elements interact with each other to create a clear, consistent and cohesive narrative—while also making sure that you are as bold, vulnerable and authentic as possible. This podcast is a must for anyone wanting to make sure these independent pieces come together in a way that makes your overall application as powerful as possible.

We don't allow ourselves to let go and be still without harping on it. Forcing us to believe we aren't accomplishing anything and we don't deserve this stillness. When we are still we are coming face to face with all the scary things. The more often we find the calm moments we are able to sit still and welcome in all thoughts. When we start to do this process it tends to be the negative thoughts. The ego shows up and tells us all the things that we are not doing. The judgment starts to sink in. Instead allow yourself to ask, "Why am I angry?", "What's the root cause of the problem?", "What's actually frustrating me at this moment?" The more we practice allowing all thoughts to come in, we begin to welcome both the good and bad. Since doing this work, I've found myself much more calm and okay with being still. I have lots of scenarios sharing ways I could have chosen calmness or stillness that would have helped the scenario have a more positive outcome.

Have you ever wondered why you lose control with food? Or why you have that day where you feel like you've been ran over by a truck? In this episode, Natalie shares why that happens and why being super disciplined with your food and training may not be as helpful as the dieting world makes it out to be. We try to control our food, our training, our daily schedule and forcing ourselves to stick to the plan. And it's this need to control that always leads us to swinging out of control, and then losing trust in ourselves. An important part to making fitness a lifestyle is learning how to free yourself from this need to control. Tune in to learn how Natalie teaches herself and her clients how to let go of control. "Forcing ourselves to follow the plan may make us feel safe, but is it really creating the life you want? Are you expeirencing food freedom? Are you experiencing life fully? Are you feeling full of life? Or are you becoming more obsessive, burnt out and overhelmed?" - Natalie Newhart Connect with Coach Nat!

Consistency Hack For Weight Loss - Weight Loss for Women Over 40 One of the biggest complaints I hear from women who come to me wanting to work with me is that they need to be more consistent. You've heard over and over “Consistency is King (or Queen)” And while I will not negate that consistency IS important….for instance you will get better results from lifting weights on a consistent basis as opposed to lifting weight one time. The problem comes in ..is when you are FORCING yourself to do all the things. Recently, I had a client that messaged me that she felt obligated to do her workout but she didn't feel good. She was tired and felt run down. Now, if you are in Dieter's Mentality you will be thinking that you need to suck it up and do the workout. I told her to go rest and not do her workout. Does that mean she wasn't consistent?...And in the big picture does that matter? When you decide you want to lose weight you tend to start off making these big goals with big plans….listen in for more. Ready to Get Started? If you want help putting this all together I can absolutely help you. The steps are simple. The implementation is where you need help. This is what I do all day long with my clients. If you want to end today and tomorrow and all the days moving forward feeling proud, successful and on point to achieving your weight loss goals, get yourself on my schedule NOW! The September Jumpstart Group is now accepting applicants. The last group is wrapping up and I have clients that hit their 10 lbs weight loss goal EVEN before the 12 week mark…and clients that lost 15 lbs! The September Group is starting September 27th but I am only taking 10 women and I am very selective as to who I take into this group program. Go to https://www.nicolesimonin.com/group to schedule your call. The Workout App is also now available! 4 different workouts and a different challenge every month all at your fingertips!

Welcome to #Millennial, the home of pretend adulting and real friendship and romance talk! The Hot Indictment Summer hits just keep coming: TRUMP. IS. INDICTED. FOR. A. FOURTH. TIME! This week's episode is a mailbag show, so we're covering as many confessionals and pieces of feedback as we can (*in 90 minutes, Andrew is flying the night of our recording, and he'll kill us if we give him another 2 hour edit). Uh oh, we influenced too close to the sun: using ChatGPT to write cover letters. The Adventures of Ronald the SAG President and Nancy the Throat Goat. Ugh Chrissy, stop inviting yourself to your coworkers' weddings. No one invited you! A confessional writer grapples with supporting their child's preferences while also protecting them from a family of Trumpers. We're all inspired by a confessional writer who did a boudoir photoshoot for her husband-to-be. Free those titties! Is it possible to say "I love you" too soon? What's the right amount of time? Why is being unfollowed on social channels by people we personally know so hurtful? Do we spite unfollow people? Honestly, there's no thread to connect this week's recommendations: The TWA Hotel at JFK International Airport (Laura), Pluto TV (Andrew), and Beauty of Joseon sunscreen (Pam). And in this week's installment of After Dark: Instead of breaking a celebrity death, TMZ recently broke news of a death HOAX! We reflect on the celebrity deaths that shook the culture, and look at why TMZ isn't following the same rules of journalistic ethics as more mainstream outlets. Does that somehow make them better at breaking news? Hide your nudes - a member of the panel has sold footage to TMZ before! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Meanwhile, the US government including Congress, Biden and even the fucking Supreme Court are all working hard to ensure that the Mountain Valley Pipeline gets shoved through one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, Appalachia. But pipeline fighters aren't taking this fight lying down - unless of course, they're locking down. And in the midst of this, it appears that the US' plan for dealing with climate chaos is to build back better...military bases... PLUS deforestation in the Amazon is actually decreasing, and we can't talk about war unless we talk about the petro-dollar, and MORE! leecamp.net

The Grow Your Private Practice Show was launched in July 2020, and in this time it's covered a wide variety of subjects about how to grow your practice and attract more clients. So today, I'm sharing one of the most popular episodes with you, all about how to enjoy the marketing process. So this is for you if marketing feels like a chore you keep putting off, like it's something you are forced to do to attract clients, but you wish you didn't have to.Maybe you HATE the thought of having to ‘sell' yourself, or the thought of being visible brings you out in a rash?Well if that sounds familiar, this episode is for you because it doesn't have to be that way. Forcing yourself to do something you hate is NOT the way to do something well. It's possible to enjoy your marketing, and when you enjoy your marketing, you do it more, get better at it and as a result, it's more effective. Which means more clients, better outcomes and increased income. So you not only enjoy your marketing but naturally get the results you want. Don't believe me - then listen up, and I'll show you how.

For additional notes and resources check out Douglas' website.Most of us have heard of the Inquisition, but may be sketchy on the details. Yet this is important stuff - an aspect of history that we definitely don't want repeating itself.DefinitionAccording to the Oxford English Dictionary, the Inquisition is "An ecclesiastical tribunal established by Pope Gregory IX c.1232 for the suppression of heresy. It was active chiefly in northern Italy and southern France, becoming notorious for the use of torture. In 1542 the papal Inquisition was re-established to combat Protestantism, eventually becoming an organ of papal government."Inquisition < Lat. inquirere, to inquire, and inquisitio (noun form).The inquisitor is the one making the inquiry.Ecclesiastical: pertaining to the church (ecclesia).Tribunal: Each session was more or less a session of court. The ecclesiastical authority, after examining the alleged heretic, hand the him (or her) over to the civil authorities, knowing full well what punishment would be inflicted.Heresy: not primarily about false teaching, but about division (Gk. haeresis). A threat to the community at least as much as a threat to doctrinal purity of the church.Combating Protestant teaching, as well as in the suppression of Muslims and Jews (esp. in the 1400s).OriginsIt is theoretically possible that some early Christians took severe measures to ensure doctrinal conformity, yet there is no evidence of this in church history until the early Middle Ages.In 385 AD Priscilla and six of her followers were beheaded at Trèves (France).Yet this event postdates the great apostasy.The church had been sliding into worldliness and biblical error for several generations.The church state was a monstrous hybrid, a creature that ought not to have existed.Before 1100 AD, local clergy maintained doctrinal discipline. At times erring members were imprisoned (without torture). Execution was rare.France and ItalyIt is arguable that the First Inquisition at Languedoc, in Southern France, in 1184, although the Inquisition had not been established as a permanent institution until the 1230s, under Pope Gregory IX. Life in prison was offered to those who recanted, execution for those who did not.The Inquisition was strong not only in France, but also in Northern Italy. Inquisitors were typically drawn from the order of Dominican monks, although Franciscans also served. These men were natural choice, given their grasp of church doctrine. (It could also have been unwise to have the parish priest put the members of his own church on the rack!)Spain, Portugal, and the New WorldMany have heard of the Spanish Inquisition, "An ecclesiastical court established in Roman Catholic Spain in 1478 and directed originally against converts from Judaism and Islam but later also against Protestants. It operated with great severity until suppressed in the early 19th century." (OED)Isabella and Ferdinand are better known for their interactions with Christopher Columbus, beginning in 1492, as well as for their expulsion of the Jews from Spain (also in 1492) along with resumption of the Reconquista (Reconquest), the effort to reclaim land and loyalty from the Muslims, dwelling in Spain since the 8th century.Many Jews and some Muslims pretended to be Christian, in order not to be captured. The last execution of the Spanish Inquisition took place in 1826, of a schoolteacher who was a deist (one who denies the God of the Bible, miracles, the incarnation, etc -- more or less than worldview of many of the founding fathers of the fledgling American republic.The Inquisition was established in Portugal in 1536. From there is reached Goa (southwest India) in 1560. The Spanish Inquisition was taken to the New World, especially notorious in Peru and Mexico.Galileo GalileiGalileo ran afoul of the Inquisition in 1633. It is not true that he was executed for promoting his idea that the earth orbited the sun, although he was censured (and censored) and placed under house arrest. Many intellectuals -- all intellectuals were Catholic in Italy and other European countries, so this was hardly a case of the Church vs. Science! -- probably agreed with Galileo, yet preferred the public not be informed of the latest scientific discoveries. They feared that a crisis of confidence might be triggered, particularly as the ignorant were unable to understand the science or theology. The church, in other words, was protecting the power structure.Persecution of WitchesPope John II opened the Vatican archives to external historians, which resulted in the confirmation of a number of executions of witches during the Inquisition. Perhaps the totals are higher, but the official count is 59 witches killed in Spain, 36 in Italy, and 4 in Portugal -- 99 all together. (Protestants killed a small number of witches, perhaps fewer than 40, in the America during the colonial period.)Torture and ExecutionAlthough mutilation was technically forbidden, in 1256 Pope Alexander V created a loophole for the inquisitor. There were many methods of torture:Forcing liquids (sometimes scalding) down the throatThe rackThumbscrewsMetal pincers (red hot)StrappadoBurningAs for execution, heretics were often burned at the stake. In the past I had heard that 100,000s had been executed -- and unfortunately repeated this figure -- yet the true total appears to be in the 1000s. (An exaggeration by opponents of the Catholic Church?) To see what the Bible says about execution, listen to my podcast on Capital Punishment (website membership and login required).The Inquisition in the 21st centuryThe Inquisition still exists today, though without the torture and death. Its current name (since 1542) is the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith."Lessons for todayUniformity must not be mistaken for unity.Church and state were separate in the early Christian period, and that separation was (and is) for the good of all. Jesus specifically forbade us to lead by authority and power as worldly leaders do: no lording it over others!Where there is a high degree of social solidarity (tribal regions, chiefdoms, traditional societies), leaders will need to wrestle with these issues. Don't just surrender; history need not be repeated. Foster a spirit of tolerance and respect.We ought to represent others fairly -- individuals as well as groups. Demonizing of Jews, Muslims and heterodox Christians still takes place, both without and within the church.Let's take teaching ministry seriously, but leave final judgment to God. Let's strive for an atmosphere of openness, welcoming questions and dialogue.Conclusion It is easy to condemn the Catholic Church for its extreme measures. While shock is merited, we in the modern age are likely to underestimate the seriousness (and fear) with which dissent was viewed by secular and ecclesiastical leaders, from the Middle Ages until relatively modern times.Since dissent constituted sedition, heresy was taken with the utmost seriousness.This was not an age of freedom of speech or equity in law, but an age of social solidarity.Inquisitorial measures were adopted not so much for the good of the heretic as for the good of society, by instilling fear in order to maintain conformity.Such practices are forbidden to followers of Christ.

On this week's episode of True Crime New England, Katie and Liz talk through the details of a cold winter day in January 2019 when recent rehab escapee, Everett Simpson, elbowed his way into the car of a young woman and her 4-year-old son in the parking lot of the Mall of New Hampshire. Forcing the mom/son duo to drive all over Vermont, all while harassing them and acting extremely manic, Simpson brought them to a motel in White River Junction, Vermont and raped the young woman. After finally letting the pair go, Everett got all the way to Pennsylvania before he was caught. His trial occurred in April of 2023 and as of now, his sentencing is still pending. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/truecrimene/support
Your offer was just accepted on a beautiful property in Central Florida just a few miles from the coast. The income you will make from this short-term rental will fund your early retirement plans. Everything is humming along relatively smoothly—until you get your quote back for the insurance. Now, you feel like you just got punched in the gut. The cost of the insurance will certainly take a chunk out of your profits, but after talking to an agent, you count yourself lucky because had you been located just a few miles south, you wouldn't even be able to find a carrier to cover you. What's going on in Florida? What about California and Texas? If it seems like finding affordable insurance in some areas is getting harder and harder, your thoughts are correct. Capacity is limited, and prices are going up. Many carriers are pulling out of markets entirely. But why? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

In this episode, we dive into the notion of touch, and making the choice, to hug or not to hug! Forcing your 2-year-old to hug grandma is teaching them that there are people who don't need consent to touch their bodies. And that some people are so important that they get to decide FOR YOU! And that's not right! Let's talk the ins and outs of consent and empowering our kids through modeling, and teaching them to have a voice.

Jason discusses the national debt, unfunded liabilities, and the practicality of a gold standard. He also explores the idea of a balanced budget amendment and its potential impact on the economy. While acknowledging the inflationary effects of debt, he believes the U.S. will continue to kick the can down the road for years. Additionally, Jason emphasizes the importance of investing in real estate and warns that rents are too low and will likely rise, making it an opportune time for investors. Today Jason welcomes Chance Finucane from Oxbow Advisors. They discuss the economy and markets, highlighting concerns about inflation and rate hikes. With a potential economic slowdown on the horizon, banks are facing challenges with higher interest rates affecting their profit margins. As for real estate, office space is collapsing, but the housing market remains resilient due to low inventory and high equity for homeowners. For investors, dividend-paying stocks in various sectors like telecoms, oil pipelines, and REITs offer attractive opportunities in the current market. https://oxbowadvisors.com/ Check out Jason's RENT (Real Estate News & Tech) YouTube Channel today! https://www.youtube.com/@realestatenewstechrentjaso2550 #NationalDebt #GoldStandard #BalancedBudget #RealEstateInvestment #Inflation #RentalMarket Key Takeaways: Jason's editorial 1:17 The US national debt and a gold standard 2:56 Former President Ronald Reagan and the Balance Budget Amendment 7:53 Join the Empowered Investor Pro 8:49 Real Estate News & Tech YouTube channel 9:54 "RENTS are too damn low!"
