Want to know more about What is a Gap Year? What is Link Year in Branson Missouri? Well today, we interview a person, Zander Turner, who has been through the program and talks about how he spent his year between high school and college.While Gap Year programs can focus on specific goals, talents, and skills, they are generally a non-academic experience in between two very academically rigorous experiences – High School and College.Everyone you know is a disciple of something. You're either a disciple of a culture that's attempting to force you into its image, or a disciple of Jesus Christ – being molded and shaped into whom He desires you to be.Link Year may be a place for you to discover the foundations of your faith, to better understand how God has wired you and seeks to work through you.

An accord reached, Our Three Yet Alive return to their worldline with their lives their own and ahead of them. For Steiner, 7.3 months: time to step back, resume his role as educator, take up a new role as supporter, and contemplate his future role as Champion; the ramifications of others' actions are reckoned with and an ongoing relationship changes by grace of opportunity. For Grant, 12.25 months: time, too, to step back, relocate, to lay down his sword, to contemplate passage between two lives, to investigate his own repair, to answer for his forbidden knowledge, to feel a gulf grow; healing is denied by dint of anonimity and the misery of that dint is borne. For Roxanne, 14.6: time enough to assert her will for the course of her oldest relationship, to mentor those who move to feel the gaps left by those who've stepped back, to chase healing for others, to strike out once more on her own; the weight of the world moving around and ahead of her is crushing and she chooses to take her final steps in detachment. Get your sleeves rolled up, Navi. This is our big moment for them, let's do it right.

从莎士比亚的英国出发，途径波德莱尔的法国，特别栏目「沙仑的玫瑰」第三期，复旦大学外语学院的三位老师姜林静、陈杰和包慧怡转向了歌德的德国。你或许知道他是《少年维特之烦恼》《浮士德》等经典巨著的作者，但你是否了解过他从未停止“折腾”的人生？——年少成名，大学时代就被捧为天才作家；26岁跻身政界，进入“编制；做了十年公务员，又毅然告别体制生活，在37岁开启“gap year”，壮游意大利，完成自我教育。 这样看似随心所欲、尽在掌控的人生，实则有一段格外动荡的历史背景。歌德一生历经法国大革命爆发、美国独立战争、拿破仑崛起、神圣罗马帝国灭亡等重大事件，但奇怪的是，时局的动荡从未直接撼动他的文学创作。生活在一个无法预测的时代，歌德选择以在小说中虚化历史背景的方式，向世界和时间敞开，构建一种更加普遍的精神力量。 少年维特式的烦忧，迷人却也危险。成人礼之后的歌德，意识到需要不断以激情来刺激生命是一种病态，赤裸裸地投入这个世界，敢于行动和决断，才是生命力的体现——哪怕是漫无目的地玩耍和漫游。面对令人措手不及的封闭和保守，我们如何能像歌德一样，摆脱少年的感伤，却依然保有少年的冒险精神？ 致净新生，敏感无惧。本期节目由妮维雅赞助播出。 【客座主播】 包慧怡，爱尔兰都柏林大学中世纪文学博士，复旦大学英文系副教授。著有《我坐在火山的最边缘》、文集《缮写室》等。 陈杰，索邦大学法语文学博士，复旦大学法语系副教授。著有《十七世纪法国的权力与文学》《法国古典主义诗剧批评本》。 姜林静，海德堡大学德语文学博士，复旦大学德文系副教授。研究方向：德语文学中的政治神学，德奥文学与古典音乐的关系。 【时间轴】 04:18 《少年维特之烦恼》一夜成名，带火全套歌德周边 17:15 "gap year"背后的壮游传统：人在漫游世界中完整 34:30 在乱世中倡导多元的“世界文学”，而不是民族主义的固步自封 44:06 晚期作品《亲和力》:人与人的亲疏能用配平化学方程式的思路操控吗？ 59:57 从《亲和力》中的爱情实验看西方“典雅爱情”的历史 61:52 典雅爱情的出现如何影响了婚姻制度和女性地位的发展 79:28 歌德的一万个业余爱好：“实用”和“专业”真的是最高效的选择吗？ 87:28 歌德的人生启发我们，面临结构性的问题，不能等待结构自身的质变 【节目中提到的人名和作品】 人物 约翰·沃尔夫冈·冯·歌德（1749-1832），节目中提到他的作品如下： 小说《少年维特之烦恼》《威廉·迈斯特的学习时代》《亲和力》 散文《意大利游记》 诗剧《浮士德》 诗集《罗马哀歌》 乔治·戈登·拜伦（1788—1824），英国诗人，代表作《唐璜》。 约翰·济慈（1795-1821），英国诗人，代表作《夜莺》《希腊古瓮》。 米开朗基罗·博那罗蒂（1475-1564），意大利绘画家、雕塑家，代表作《大卫》《创世纪》。 约翰·约阿辛·温克尔曼（1717-1768），德意志考古学家、艺术史家，代表作《论古代艺术》。 弗里德里希·席勒（1759-1805），德国诗人、哲学家，代表作《论美书简》《论素朴的诗与感伤的诗》。 德西德里乌斯·伊拉斯谟（1466-1536），尼德兰人文主义思想家，代表作《愚人颂》，《基督教骑士手册》。 马丁·路德（1483-1546），德国宗教改革家，代表作《九十五条论纲》。 沙姆斯·哈菲兹（1315-1390），波斯诗人，代表作《诗颂集》。 爱德华·沃第尔·萨义德（1935-2003），巴勒斯坦文学理论家，代表作《知识分子论》《东方主义》。 其他作品 《玫瑰传奇》[法] 洛里斯的纪尧姆 《红与黑》[法] 司汤达 【出品人】蔡欣 【节目编辑】何润哲 Yixin 【后期制作】广岛乱 【视觉设计】孙晓曦 李旭照

She talks about what she learned about herself and the world, and how, despite being a travel-lover and a polyglot, she knows she'll never leave the Pacific Northwest for long.

As if that wasn't enough, Gabby also holds the record as the youngest woman in the world, at 16 years old, to climb the sixth highest peak, Cho Oyu, Tibet. Her passion for mountaineering began as a 15-year-old with her first trip to Nepal; a trek to Everest Base Camp with her Mum, Jane. Gabby has also enjoyed running and triathlons at home. She recently finished Year 12 VCE and is now travelling in Europe for a Gap Year. Her next plans are to climb the remaining eleven peaks (above 8000m), as she now has three under her belt.From a young age, Jane, 52, has always been into extreme sports skydiving, motorbike riding, trapeze, ultra-running and scuba diving, she now has a newfound love of mountaineering. She's extremely dedicated to her training regime for these climbs, while also being a mum of 4, to Sam, Gabby, Joe and Anna, and working as an educator and artist. She completed two 8000m summits alongside Gabby, Everest and Cho Oyu and enjoyed a well-earned sleep-in whilst Gabby headed up Lhotse! Jane is now rediscovering life as a single mum and climbed with the message of @teachusconsent; the holistic consent education campaign begun by Chanel Contos in 2020.Despite having altitude sickness, Jane still has the climbing bug, and might just join Gabby for another peak, as long as it's under 8000m.

Today, Debbie talks to writer and novelist Hilma Wolitzer, age 92. She's just published a new book of short stories titled "Today a Woman Went Mad in the Supermarket." So yes, this is someone who is "making the most of growing older."Hilma's stories of sharply observed domestic life were published in the Saturday Evening Post and Esquire in the 1960s and 1970s. She has taught writing at the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference, the Iowa Writers' Workshop, NYU, and Columbia. She's also the author of nine novels and the recipient of national awards and fellowships.Her husband of almost 70 years died of COVID in the first months of the pandemic. It was as if he vanished, she told Debbie.She and her husband Morty both got Covid in April of 2020. They were taken to separate hospitals in New York City.She never got to say good-bye.He died two days before she was released from the hospital and went home to her apartment.As she tells Debbie on the podcast:"There were his slippers next to the bed. There was a pair of his drugstore eyeglasses. He seemed to have vanished and that was the sense I tried to depict in (the final) story (of her new book). Disappearance rather than dying." She was encouraged to write through her grief, and to write this story and add it to a new collection, by her daughters: New York Times bestselling novelist Meg Wolitzer and artist Nancy Wolitzer.She titled the new story, "The Great Escape." It is as diamond sharp and perfect - and funny - as her earlier writing. There's even sex.

She's always been an entrepreneur at heart, juggling business and academics while in high school.

Finally, Mary talks about why she decided to take a gap year and why that time was incredibly valuable to her.

Today, Debbie speaks with Paula Span, a veteran journalist and the author since 2009 of the New York Times' column, The New Old Age. The column explores, as the Times' puts it, “the unprecedented challenges posed by a rapidly aging population.” That's a pretty broad topic so Paula covers everything from the cost of growing older, to social security for same sex couples, to stubborn aging parents, to the evolving status of medical aid in dying (MAID), formerly known as death with dignity. In 2017, after becoming a grandmother, she added a second Times column, Generation Grandparent. She's adapted those essays for her audiobook “The Bubbe Diaries,” released by Audible in 2021.She's also a revered professor of journalism, having taught at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism for over two decades. She is the author of “When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions,” published by Hachette.She and Debbie talk about how she explores the topic of pernicious ageism for the Times - not with personal opinion - but with research and data and expert interviews.

She lives in Montclair, N.J., and travels to Brooklyn once a week to care for her granddaughter.This is an intriguing behind-the-scenes peak at writing for the Times from a veteran journalist.
