This week, your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview John Uusta of Kelley | Uustal (https://kelleyuustal.com/).    Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and Review   New! Watch GTP on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKdeO4IodggpSLyhWVdcWKw   Episode Details: John Uustal, a founding partner of Kelley | Uustal in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, discusses how he refused to accept the findings of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, engineering experts, firefighters and police officers and instead pursued justice for a 3-year-old girl who was badly burned by a defective pressure cooker. On September 14, 2015, toddler Samantha Gonzalez was being bathed by her grandmother in the kitchen sink when a Vasconia Aluminum 8 Quart Pressure Cooker on the nearby stove began to malfunction and opened under pressure, spraying scalding liquid onto the child. Sixty percent of Samantha's body was covered in second and third-degree burns, resulting in the loss of a leg, hand and all her fingers. The manufacturer, Lifetime Brands, denied any defect and instead blamed Samantha's grandmother for the tragic incident. John and his legal team discovered a major corporate cover-up when older models, unlike the newer models that had been used for testing, were found to have a defective lid-locking system that made them unsafe for use on stoves with higher temperatures higher than 2,000 watts. Despite knowledge of the design flaw, Lifetime Brands never issued a recall or a warning to consumers and instead quietly made design adjustments in newer models. On November 6, 2018, a Broward County, Florida Circuit Court Judge approved a $27 million settlement in favor of the plaintiff, resulting in one of the largest recoveries ever obtained in the U.S. for a consumer product design defect.   Click Here to Read/Download the Complete Trial Documents     Guest Bios: John Uustal: John Uustal is a founding partner of the Kelley | Uustal law firm in Fort Lauderdale. Uustal leads a team of fourteen elite trial lawyers, who have won some of the largest verdicts in the country. He limits his own practice to a small number of “cases that can't be won for families that can't afford to lose.” He has taken on some of the most complex and difficult legal cases of our time. His successes have resulted in safer fuel tanks, safer seat belts, safer medical care, and safer equipment for firefighters. That success has earned him some powerful enemies. A car company promised to bankrupt him, he was attacked and maligned by Big Tobacco, and he was threatened in Argentina after antagonizing government officials who had been complicit in Argentina's dirty war. He has won every case he has tried against tobacco companies. He has won every one of his cases involving keyless ignition defects. He has been named Product Liability Lawyer of the Year by America's Best Lawyers, awarded the Most Effective Lawyer for Product Liability by the Daily Business Review, and has been interviewed and chronicled by national newspapers and television news programs. The day after John Uustal started law school, Hurricane Andrew tore through the University of Miami, destroyed parts of the city, and shut down the school. Once the campus and surrounding areas reopened, his first-year class was forced to complete a full year of law school in much less time. For months they studied law at a ridiculous pace under tremendous pressure while living without electricity or phone service and at the same time struggling to help those still in need. At the end of that school year – with all its impossible demands and incredible responsibility - Mr. Uustal ranked first in the entire student body and had earned the Book Award for the highest grade in the class in every single class that year. He turned his attention to trial skills and was prosecuting criminals in Miami courtrooms even before he graduated. He earned what was reportedly the highest score in the entire state on the Florida Bar Examination. In his first few years of practice he obtained a $51 million verdict trying a car crash case himself, helped make national news when he discovered a massive corporate scheme to cover-up the real reason that people were burning alive in General Motors vehicles, and tried cases across the country. Mr. Uustal now handles incredibly complex and difficult cases against the best defense attorneys in the world. His successes have resulted in safer fuel tanks, safer seat belts, safer medical care, and safer equipment for firefighters and paramedics. His most prominent recent cases have been against companies that knowingly sell dangerously defective products. He represented a young girl who was severely burned when a pressure cooker malfunctioned and won one of the largest recoveries ever in the entire country; and this was on a case that other lawyers rejected. He handled cases involving keyless ignition defects that killed people in their homes and won every case. He was so infuriated by the refusal of automobile companies to fix their vehicles in the ways their own engineers specified that he worked with the New York Times on a comprehensive story of the defect, which led to hearings in the U.S. Senate. He has won every case he has tried against tobacco manufacturers, who have been selling dangerous products for decades. He has been named Product Liability Lawyer of the Year by America's Best Lawyers, Awarded the Most Effective Lawyer for Product Liability by the Daily Business Review, and has been interviewed and chronicled by national newspapers and television news programs. His work has also earned him some powerful enemies. A car company promised to bankrupt him, he was attacked and maligned by Big Tobacco, and he was threatened in Argentina after antagonizing government officials who had been complicit in Argentina's dirty war. His firm is organized specifically so that it can withstand such intimidation. The words of Clarence Darrow, painted on the walls, create clarity in every decision that requires sacrifice: “I have lived my life, and I have fought my battles, against power. I have asked no odds from them, and I never will.” Mr. Uustal limits his practice to representing families who have suffered catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, even when other attorneys say the case can't be won. With truly devastating injuries, the difference between a good recovery and a great recovery may be all the difference in the world. To make that kind of difference he can only handle a few cases at a time. There is no other way. Clients have called him “the real deal”; “an old-school fighter” who “cared about us as people first.” Mr. Uustal grew up in Fort Lauderdale. His mother was a teacher, his father was a coach, and he saw the real impact they each had on so many young lives. He coaches competitive soccer for Fort Lauderdale Select, and he finds opportunities to coach in the law as well. He believes that it is important to freely give his time advising, assisting and teaching other attorneys who ask for help. He gives lectures across the country and teaches trial skills.

The Upreneur podcast has partnered up with SCORE, hosted by Jeremy Straub, to help bring engaging conversations with today's top leaders and business owners. In today's episode, we spoke with Luis Gazitua, CEO of JAG insurance, about how to be successful with your friends, the difference between building and chasing a business, and how your goal as a leader long term is to find someone to replace you!Luis Gazitua developed an incredible work ethic thanks to his family building one of South Florida's most recognizable restaurant chains. That work ethic coupled with his ability to simplify even the most complex insurance jargon are what makes him invaluable to his clients. Since forming JAG alongside Douglas Jones and Fernando Alvarez in 2013, he has been determined to redefine the insurance experience. That innovation continues today as he leverages social media to create new business relationships and is now leading the charge in the integration of cryptocurrency within insurance. Learning a stellar work ethic from my family as they build an iconic restaurant chain throughout South Florida, I understand what it takes to build something from the ground up. That type of empathy is what drives my desire to help business owners expand their businesses by guiding them through their risk management needs. At JAG, I've been able to create a company that gives personable service while having the resources of a larger firm. We are well equipped to help any business protect its hard-earned assets.My other passion is showcasing the potential of the insurance industry to younger generations. I think the industry has done a poor job of showing the possibilities of careers insurance can offer. It's my goal to rectify this and get new blood into the industry and JAG be a hub of new talent. Mentorship is the best gift you can give to an industry or a community. That's what JAG wants to offer to all newcomers in our industry.Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/JagInsuranceGroup/Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/jaginsurance/Linkedinhttps://www.linkedin.com/company/jaginsurance/Websitewww.jaginsgroup.comThank you for listening, and don't forget to share, rate, and subscribe!If you enjoyed today's episode and want to stay up to date with new upcoming episodes, subscribe to our podcast.

We can get a version of what we always wanted but maybe not the exact thing we imagined when we were small. That's not the case with Madonna, and she has the medals to prove it. She didn't let injury stop her, or the death of her beloved coach. She is serious about sprinting but you can tell from our laughter that she is enjoying her life. There are some problems early on with her microphone. I apologize, and hope you agree that her spirit and her stories make it not that noticeable. For all of us who watch the Olympics and imagine being a champion athlete, I hope you enjoy this interview. Full transcript available at https://ialwayswantedto.net

Cerebral Women Art Talks Podcast

Episode 76 features New York based David Shrobe. He creates multi-layered portraits and assemblage paintings made in part from everyday materials that he finds in multiple geographies, and especially from around his familial home. He disassembles furniture, separating wood from fabric and recombines them as supports for collage, painting, and drawing. Through these various modes of production his work brings notions of identity, history, and memory into question, while challenging conventions of classical portraiture. Shrobe produces new narratives, fragmented and nonlinear, that feel intimate and personal without being anchored to a specific time or place. David Shrobe (b.1974, New York) lives and works in New York. He holds an MFA and a BFA in painting from Hunter College. He is an alumnus of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and was a Joan Mitchell Artist Teaching Fellow. His work was recently included in group shows such as, PUNCH at Jeffrey Deitch Gallery, Los Angeles, and New York; Embody at Mandeville Gallery at Union College, New York; Bronx Calling: The Fourth AIM Biennial, at the Bronx Museum, and in Harlem Postcards at the Studio Museum in Harlem. He has had solo exhibitions at Thierry Goldberg Gallery in New York; Jenkins Johnson Gallery in San Francisco, and The Sugar Hill Children's Museum in New York, among others. He has shown at numerous art fairs including EXPO Chicago, Untitled Miami Beach, and most recently, a solo booth at The Armory Show. Shrobe's work is held in the Permanent Collections of The Brooklyn Museum, New York; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; The Block Museum, Evanston, Illinois; Union College, Schenectady, New York; Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon; and NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale. Monique Meloche Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by New York born artist David Shrobe. Riding the Wind's Back, meticulously carved and painted assemblage structures investigate the coexistence of hybrid identities and notions of a collective remembrance reimagined. This is the artist's first exhibition with the gallery and first in Chicago thru October 30th.

Synopsis Today we celebrate the birthday of Leroy Bernard Shield, an American composer whose name might not ring a bell, but whose music you might instantly recognize – and with a smile. Shield's name rarely appeared on the credits for the classic “Our Gang” and “Laurel & Hardy” comedies from the 1930s, but his music was used in most of them. Leroy Shield was born in Waseca, Minnesota, on today's date in 1893. At five he was already an accomplished pianist and organist, and by 15 a professional arranger, composer, and concert pianist. In 1923, he joined the staff of the Victor Talking Machine Company, supervising their East Coast recording sessions. Then in 1930, he was appointed Victor's "Musical Director in charge of Hollywood, California, Activities," and it was in this capacity that he wrote and oversaw the recording of music for the famous comedies produced by the Hal Roach Studios. In 1945, Shield moved back to New York and became the orchestral contractor for the NBC radio network and worked closely with the famous conductor Arturo Toscanini and his NBC Symphony.  Leroy Shield retired in 1955, moved to Florida, and died in Fort Lauderdale in 1962.

An Exploor Guide to Peru and the Modern World Wonder, Machu Picchu

Who Wear There by the Travel Brats

Initial Planning to PeruMy partner and I planned our Machu Picchu trip in about three weeks. To optimize the planning process and to make the most of your international travels, I'd advise 6-8 weeks of planning and going for at least a week to get acclimated to the culture and altitude. Our main focuses for planning were where are we going to stay, how are we going to explore Machu Picchu, and are we going to explore reputable, safe provinces. So that's where our planning process began.Booking Flights Our trip was planned for four days - which was one to two days too short to account for the lengthy travel. From Miami airport, the flight to Lima, Peru is nearly 6 hours so we flew through the night. After going through customs at Jorge Chávez International Airport , we had to go through the check-in process and security again to catch our flight to Cusco, Peru. (We missed our flight - so make sure you have enough time accounted for if you have an international connecting flight)  Luckily, we were able to get on the next flight out to Cusco at 10am, but that meant we had been traveling for nearly 12 hours by that point. The most competitive prices to get to Peru were from international hubs, like Miami and Fort Lauderdale, that flew into Peru's capital. To browse flights and get the best deals, I highly recommend using Hopper and Skyscanner. For flights from Lima to Cusco, your best option is Latam Airlines. Still check sites like Kiwi and Skyscanner for deals on domestic flights in Peru. Where to Stay in PeruNext step in the process was where to stay once we had our dates booked. By browsing Airbnb, Trip Advisor reviews, and highly regarded hotels, we choose to stay at Tocuyeros Boutique Hotel. At the heart of the San Blas neighborhood in Cusco and only a quick walk to Plaza de Armas, we couldn't have picked a better location. Tocuyeros Hotel employed the kindest, most thoughtful people who went above and beyond to provide excellent service. When we first got there, our greeter had a 30 minute session with us - explaining about the property, showing us the best spots on the map, and answering any questions we had. It was so helpful and gave us great recommendations to look into. The entire property is so aesthetic and beautiful with a stunning view of the Andes Mountains and the town below. At night, they lock the main door to the property so no one can wander in, which added an extra layer of security. It also has 5 Stars on Trip Advisor and we felt extremely comfortable there.Altitude Sickness Once you are in Cusco, you may experience altitude sickness since it's 11,500 ft above sea level. For reference, Breckenridge, CO is about 9,000 above sea level. As you can imagine, it's high up there. Here's a helpful article to combat altitude sickness.  Now for all things Machu Picchu with Exploor PeruThis is somewhat how your trip will look - Lima Peru > Cusco, Peru > Ollantaytampo Train Station > Aguas Caliente Bus station > Machu Picchu I can not thank the universe and the Instagram algorithm enough for putting the best tour agency in our line of sight. After browsing through #MachuPicchu, I came across this epic page called Exploor Peru, which showcased more than just beautiful photos of Peru. Exploor Peru is a tour agency that specializes in unforgettable tours through Machu Picchu, the Inca trails, Humantay Lake, Rainbow Mountain, and more. The main reason we were going to Peru was for this destination so finding the right tour agency was EVERYTHING. Exploor Peru had an outstanding reputation on every review/ tour site like Trip Advisor and Viator and for good reason. Therefore, we felt so comfortable putting our adventurous day to Machu Picchu into the hands of professionals and it was worth every penny. After asking some questions and booking with them, I received our train, bus, and entrance tickets along with a thorough itinerary to my email, which allowed us to breathe and focus on other planning aspects of the trip. This level of professionalism soothed my A-type energy. The entire team was so friendly and helpful, and on the day of, everything went down like a Disney Movie. We were picked up at our hotel in Cusco at 3am (so go to bed very early the night before), and driven to the Ollantaytampo train station, where we took the Expedition train. On the way there, we got to see the sun rising in between the Andes Mountains. An hour and a half later, we arrived at Aguas Caliente, known as Machu Picchu town, and had some time to explore before taking the bus up to the entrance of Machu Picchu. This tour catered to the tourists awaiting their adventure up and made for great photos and exploration. After connecting with our tour guide Peter, we took a quick 20 minute bus ride up the mountain to the entrance. This is where Exploor Peru shines - Peter was the most knowledgeable, friendly, and considerate person and guide we've ever had. Since we went up so early, we missed the large crowds and it felt more intimate to connect with this awe-striking World Wonder. There is a good reason that Machu Picchu was named an UNESCO World Heritage Site and later a Modern World Wonder - it's hard to describe the pure magic and jaw dropping views and to know that you stand where an ancient empire once ruled. The grit and tenacity it must have taken to construct - unimaginable. Luckily, Peter was able to share more than 2 hours worth of facts and insights with us because you're bound to wonder HOW. Although we did the day tour which I highly recommend too, Exploor Peru has other longer options like The Best of Cusco 2 Days - Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu, 3 Day Tours, Tours with Hotel options, Hiking Tours, and so much more. They really cater to what you want and if you have questions, head over to Exploor Peru's website and ask. The praise doesn't go far enough - our trip wouldn't have been complete without the help of Exploor. Thank you so much. If you don't already - follow their Instagram for all the #travelinspiration. What To Do While in CuscoThen after you trek back down and take the bus, train, and car again to get back to Cusco, there's a few things you need to do. Walk around Plaza De Armas in Cusco  Tour the cathedral in Plaza De Armas Go on a short tour of Choco Museo to try various chocolates and liquorSpend a couple hours around Sacsayhuaman - protip: they only accept cash/SOL and it's a minimum of 70 SOL per person. You'll need an Uber to get there. Where to Eat in Peru Places to Eat in Aguas Caliente - After hiking through Machu Picchu and before you catch your train back, get lunch at Full House Peruvian Cuisine. Their views are worth it. Places to Eat in Cusco - For the most delicious Pisco sours, delectable Peruvian food, and excellent service, Morena Peruvian Kitchen is the spot. It was our favorite dinner out of the entire trip and it was located right off of Plaza De Armas. A highly rated restaurant known for the Peruvian delicacy, Guinea Pig, called Pachapapa was a very intimate spot with a very specific ambiance. It was a perfect date night spot with an interesting menu and exceptional service as always. Heading to Lima, Peru Unless you've booked your flight from Cusco home, you'll typically fly out of the capital Lima once again. We booked a later flight the next day out of Cusco and arrived in Lima by 7pm - where we stayed at the beautiful 5 star hotel, JW Marriott Lima Miraflores. Miraflores was a highly regarded and safe neighborhood with a lively environment and breathtaking views, so it was an easy choice and only about 30 minutes from the airport. After an exhausting, fast paced trip, we chose not to explore Lima far beyond our hotel. I would recommend extending your trip and having more rest and relaxation time too. The JW Marriott's Spa was perfect for that - best massage I've ever gotten. While in Lima, we did eat well and there were so many places with thousands of 5 star reviews. For a fancier dinner overlooking the Pacific, La Rosa Nautica hit the nail on the head and was the perfect way to end an unforgettable trip.
