This week on Yes But Why, I chatted with my friend Jess Lonett, an enthusiastic human who loves collaborating with other enthusiastic humans.Jess Lonett is a cat mom, a glitter enthusiast, a #swiftie, an inspiration hoarder, a playlist curator, a donut lover, and an improviser based in Austin, Texas! She is what some may call a human woman who likes attention and has been capturing the attention of friends, family and strangers alike in a variety of ways since birth. She's won silver medals as a competitive dancer, played Goldilocks as the lead in her 3rd grade class play, done kicklines in high school football halftime shows on the pom pom squad, and been knocked down as a jammer on a small town roller derby team. She performs comedy regularly at Fallout Theater and she writes a blog called “!!!” (for real though, the website is http://www.exclamationpointexclamationpointexclamationpoint.com/ )Turns out, Jess is from Pittsburgh; and, even though I didn't know that until this chat, I should have assumed. She is as delightful and wonderfully creative as the other amazing ladies I've interviewed from Pittsburgh. Amazing town. Jess and I are compatriots from the Austin improv scene. I have had the pleasure of coaching Jess in improv and directing her in sketch comedy a few times over the years. In our conversation, Jess told me that she started as a performer like so many of us do – choreographing dances in her basement. We shared notes on both winning lip sync contests back in the day. And then, Jess told me she hosted a radio show in college called “Groovy Cupcakes.” Now that is pretty much the most perfectly Jess thing I've ever heard. Jess loves music; that's how she got to Austin. She is a lover of mixtapes (aren't we all) and she is a curator of some amazing Spotify playlists. Jess is an appreciator of art and the people who make art. That is something we really bond over and share. Jess has such a welcoming energy. She told me that she is community first, creativity second, when it comes to her extracurricular activities. From improv to volleyball to dance, Jess brings the joy to every scene she encounters. It's all about connecting with people. And Jess is an amazing success at that. You can support Jess Lonett at Fallout Theater in Austin Texas where, on the last Wednesday of the month at 8PM, she will be performing in Teenage Dirtbag. You can also connect with her on Instagram by following @itsjesslonett.Yes But Why Podcast is a proud member of the HC Universal Network family of podcasts.

Spiritual authority is tricky business. It is tricky for the leaders, and it is tricky for the followers. What it is not, is optional.Because it is critical, it is important that it is exercised carefully by the leaders. That is the goldilocks part: Start with just the right amounts of humility and add occasional boldness, all the while before the watchful eye of God.It is also important that those under authority do this right. There is a way that receiving authority must be exercised correctly. Sometimes it is right to expose and flee abusive authority; sometimes forgive previous failings; but always to forge ongoing appropriate authority over oneself. Why? Authority is specifically to build you up. It is for your benefit. It is self-destructive to remove yourself from a process that is specifically designed by God for your blessing.

Tom welcomes Francis Hunt, Founder of "The Market Sniper" back to the show. Francis, discuss how demand for physical metal appears to be increasing significantly in the United Kingdom. A lot of interest is coming from those in the financial industry. Some of those customers have expressed concerns about their employer's stability. Self-directed pensions in the U.K. are also seeing a move away from equities and into custodial backed physical metals. George Soros recently wrote an open letter to the latest U.K. Prime Minister suggesting the idea of perpetual bonds. These are open-ended bonds that never get repaid. This is like having a mortgage that never ends, where all you do is service the debt forever. Soros's solution is just more debt on top of debt with more flexible terms. He explains the concept of hyperstagflation and how it applies during economic extremes. We're in the reverse Goldilocks economy. Francis believes growth is going to capped while inflation persists. This is the worst combination for the retail market, but is great for billionaires who can borrow large sums from banks. This is an inherent bias in the financial system. He believes we need a truer price index for physical metals where the true cost to the average purchaser is reflected. Maintaining rates at current levels will lead to a harsh reality and probably a vicious depression. What do you do when everyone is out of work and getting stimulus checks? At that point, we're basically in communism with a Draconian techno control system. Silver is starting to show its strength relative to gold. Platinum is at historic levels relative to palladium, and Russia is a major producer. Lastly, Francis explains how cryptos are high-beta trades and why stablecoins might become important for transactions.

Guest LinksTwitter: https://twitter.com/themarketsniperWebsite: https://themarketsniper.com/YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheMarketSniper Francis is a trader, first and foremost. Unlike most educators in the trading space, Francis walks the walk and talks the talk, with 30 years of experience trading his personal capital on various markets and instruments. Through this passion for trading and his relentless study of markets and economic theory, he uses the Hunt Volatility Funnel trading methodology, a systemized approach, to answer the critical question: What is the next most profitable trade? He believes the actual price of an asset is the most accurate reflection of all the factors that influence it. Practical technical analysis, the study of price action over time, is needed to formulate profitable trade ideas. Indeed, with all the market manipulation and high-frequency trading operations currently in play, technical analysis is all that can be relied upon when it comes to formulating future price trends. A trained eye can often spot such manipulative practices, as is the case with HVF traders. Therefore, the HVF methodology is based purely on technical analysis. Francis is passionate about sharing his knowledge and understanding of markets by utilizing his HVF trading methodology. With entertaining anecdotes and the careful guidance of his students, he has already trained a large community of hundreds of traders and helped them transform from com...

Julie and Casey chat with Ruchika Tulshyan (author, speaker, and founder of Candour) about her viral HBR article on imposter syndrome, how to handle feedback (giving it and receiving it), and the gift of discomfort. Along the way, we dive into some of our favorite big subjects (authenticity, executive presence, etc.) and why the most important question to ask is: “for whom?” Thank you to our Season 4 sponsor, Armoire! If you're ready to try a new look, Armoire's high-end clothing rental service (full of amazing women-owned brands) will hook you up! For 50% off your first month's rental + a free item, go to http://armoire.style/voiceis and use VOICEIS in the referral box! TOP TAKEAWAYS: What do you do with conflicting feedback (the “Goldilocks” problem — “you're too strong / you're not strong enough” etc)? Feel your feelings, investigate it, think about it, check in with your tribe . . . and then remember that you're existing within biased systems, and you can still stand in your power. When it comes to the “big subjects” like authenticity, leadership, executive presence, the operative question is “for whom?” i.e, “For whom is this the “right” kind of authenticity?” The foundation of so much discomfort is coming to terms with the fact that the world is not binary – that two things can be true at the same time (“I have experience marginalization AND I have privilege” or “my intentions were good AND I caused harm to another person”). We first have to learn to live with that complexity, and then additionally we have to learn how to communicate it. LESSON: Discomfort and confidence can (and probably will) exist at the same time. And . . . what if a little imposter syndrome is a good thing? Ruchika Tulshyan is the best-selling author of Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work (MIT Press). The book was described as “transformative” by Dr. Brené Brown. She's also the founder of Candour, an inclusion strategy practice. A former international business journalist, Ruchika is a regular contributor to The New York Times and Harvard Business Review. As a keynote speaker, Ruchika has addressed audiences at organizations like NASA, Pixar, Google and the U.S. Congress. Ruchika co-wrote a paradigm-shifting article, Stop Telling Women They Have Imposter Syndrome for Harvard Business Review, with Jodi-Ann Burey. The article was named among 20 most impactful HBR articles of all time. Best of all, people all over the world have said it helped change their relationship with the concept of imposter syndrome! She was selected to Thinkers50 Radar 2019 and Hive Learning's Most Influential D&I leaders list in 2019 and 2020. Ruchika is an active investor in various women-founded ventures, including Armoire, Graham & Walker VC and Backstage Capital. A self-declared Singaporean foodie, Ruchika has lived in four countries and currently calls Seattle home. Follow Ruchika: Twitter: @rtushyan Instagram: @rtulshyan LinkedIn: Ruchika Tulshyan

The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, and bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry. Let's dive into wellness and weight loss for real life, including drinking, eating out, and skipping the grocery store. In today's episode, Jenn discusses everything related to our immune system. She breaks down each component of the immune system, how they work, and what can positively and negatively impact these areas. She talks about autoimmune diseases and how to manage them. Jenn also discusses food sensitivities and allergies and how to catch them before they become full-blown issues. Tune in to learn how to keep our bodies and immune systems happy and healthy.IN THIS EPISODE:● [6:02] Understanding the immune system. ● [8:41] Understanding white blood cells. ● [10:50] What are antibodies? ● [14:39] What is the complement system? ● [16:38] What is the purpose of the spleen? ● [17:52] What is bone marrow? ● [19:32] What is the thymus? ● [21:24] What do we overlook as part of the immune system?● [29:50] Lifestyle pieces that suppress our immune system.● [34:13] Disorders of the immune system.● [37:27] What is autoimmune? Overactive vs. underactive immune system.● [40:36] What are food sensitivities, and how does our immune system impact them? ● [43:40] What foods should we avoid to keep our immune systems functioning well? ● [47:00] What nutrients are most beneficial for keeping the immune system in balance?● [58:40] What does aloe help with?KEY TAKEAWAYS:● Sometimes when you aren't feeling well, detoxing is happening in your body. Leave it alone, drink tea, and go for a walk, but don't try to suppress the process so the healing can complete. ● Our skin makes sure that we aren't falling ill from everything we come in contact with. It is also an organ and can show many things occurring inside our bodies. Typically when they show up on the skin, we have another issue going on inside the body. ● Your allergies can change. Every seven years, our bodies change which can change our allergies!QUOTES: “Our body, our immune system, remembers all of the things that it has fought, ever. And our blood cells are known as memory cells. That means that when something shows up again, it recognizes it, it can destroy it, and it doesn't make us feel sick in the same way. So there's massive support that we get for our overall health from the immune system, way beyond just thinking that it turns on when we need it. It's here all the time in so many different ways.” - Jenn Trepeck“The role of a fever is essentially the body raising its temperature to kill the pathogen. Sometimes a fever can be really helpful; certainly, it can be uncomfortable, and we may take some things to help with the fever because if the fever gets too high, there can be issues there, but a fever triggers the body to do other things too. To start to repair, it's a function of the immune system, so it's an indication that our immune system is turning on and working and fighting something.” - Jenn Trepeck“Just like Goldilocks, we're looking for it (our immune system) to be just right.” - Jenn TrepeckRESOURCES:Become A Member of Salad with a Side of FriesJenn's Free Menu PlanA Salad With a Side of FriesA Salad With a Side of Fries Instagram
Barbara Novick, Co-founder and former Vice Chairman of BlackRock, was one of the eight original partners who founded BlackRock and took it from an idea with zero assets under management to the largest investor in the world today. BlackRock has assets under management depending on the day you tune into this podcast of some $10 trillion or more.And while Barbara would be the first to tell you that she had great teammates at BlackRock, the fact is that many of the factors which made BlackRock the success it is, reported to her. She headed the Global Client Group and oversaw global business development, marketing, and client service for the first two decades of BlackRock's existence, She was the architect of the One BlackRock ethos that put clients first, front and center. Barbara tried to retire in 2008, but the global financial crisis caused her to reverse fields and create BlackRock's Global Public Policy Group to provide a voice for investors. It's incredibly influential, not just within the walls of Congress and with US regulators, but in the centers of government around the world.For obvious reasons. Barbara frequently appears on the list of the most powerful people in finance, She is, as they say in Boston, wicked smart. More than that, she asks questions and she listens. The result is that she's situationally aware of the environment she's operating in and the direction and pace of change. That enables her to apply those smarts to the real world.On this episode of Outside In, Barbara talks with Jon about diversification, technology, her passion for mentoring and focusing on opportunity. They also discuss the politicization of regulation and markets, and "The Goldilocks Dilemma".
Great innovations don't come along every day. And, usually, these ideas can't be fully realized unless the right conditions are met. Funding needs to be available, key players need to have free time, and resources need to be ready to go if any new solution or technology is to have a chance of getting off the ground. And, traditionally, chance is precisely what it came down to.But now there's a new way to innovate. A method that doesn't rely on Goldilocks conditions for any hope of success. It's innovation for the 21st century. It's innovation as a service.In this episode of Financial Futures, we explore innovation as a service (IaaS) and learn how this structured and methodical approach to innovation is helping financial institutions accelerate their GTM strategies for new solutions and making innovation equitable. We'll discuss how IaaS works, plus we'll learn where the need for rapid innovation has come from and why the traditional approach to innovating is no longer enough when it comes to ideating and creating new offerings.Join us as we learn about the innovations that are already helping institutions to remain competitive with a little help from vice presidents of Impact Ventures at FIS, Adrian Sturley, and Jason Williams.We'll also ask: How is IaaS bridging the gap between fiat and cryptocurrency? Why is speed critical when it comes to delivering innovation? How does innovation work in an "as a service" model? What does the future of innovation look like? How do organizations identify when to stop, implement and abandon innovation? What does the IaaS process look like?

The build-out of clean energy infrastructure in the West on its current trajectory would occupy about 39 million acres of land – roughly three-fourths the size of Utah – by 2050. A new study by The Nature Conservancy, however, suggests that the right mix of technologies can cut the amount of land needed in half.

“Everyone excellent at their craft starts from a place of deep insecurity,” says Flexport's founding CRO Ben Braverman. People are “slow-burning fireworks,” he explains, and we need time to learn how to do anything well.

Mid Life Crisis… the butt of many jokes. And a crisis for many marriages! I have seen several studies that challenged whether there is such a thing as a mid life crisis. I don't find many of my therapist or coach friends wondering that. We see it every day. And I see the strain a MLC can place on an already-hurting marriage. If the marriage is disconnected already, a MLC turns into a MLMC (mid life marriage crisis). Which often leads to compounding issues, like an affair. What can you do, if your spouse is having a mid life crisis? And what if it is complicated by an affair? In this episode of the Save The Marriage Podcast, I discuss what a MLC is, when it can become a MLMC, and what to do in response. Even if there is an affair. (Why this episode? Because a listener asked. If you have a question — a Goldilocks question, as I discuss in the episode — you can send it here.)

Looking for a fulfillment center can be overwhelming. How do you choose the right one? And how can you be sure they're going to provide the level of service you need? In this interview, Malcolm McKinnons walks us through what to look for when choosing a fulfillment center, and provides some great tips on how to prevent chargebacks for supplement merchants. The 4 things you should look for include: 1 - Experience — The fulfillment house for your supplements business should have experience in the supplements industry. 2 - Integration — Fulfillment centers are also digital services, not just physical ones. The right center will be able to integrate into the systems you currently use. 3 - Cost — You need to find the Goldilocks of fulfillment centers. One that's not too costly but also one that's not too cheap, in terms of budget and service offerings. 4 - Scale — A corporate fulfillment house doesn't quite help an SMB that sells supplements, and vice versa. The size of the center should match the size of your business, and the size you intend your business to grow to. Chargebacks: Malcolm gives us some great tips on how to use your supplements fulfillment center to avoid chargebacks. Simple things like weighing your products can have an incredible impact on your chargeback ratio.

It's Sunday, which means...it's recap time here on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast This week the theme was:What To Do With A $300,000 Inheritance In case you missed any episodes, here's what I covered this week… Don't Make Major Decisions For 6-12 Months Avoid Found Money Syndrome Realign The Portfolio To You Make A Concrete Plan For Inheritance Dollars Case Study: I Just Received A $300,000 Inheritance The most important takeaway from this week is: Tomorrow I'm starting a brand new weekly theme: How Much Is Enough? Saving for retirement is a lot like one of my favorite books growing up - Goldilocks. Save too much, work too hard for too long and you're likely to find that the sacrifices were too great and you didn't enjoy the working years and you didn't have enough healthy and relaxed years to enjoy your retirement. Save too little, and you're not going to be able to afford to do much else then sit around and watch Fox News and College Football all day. Save just the right amount, work just long enough to still enjoy the healthy go-go years of retirement and you've found yourself a winning combination. So next week I'll talk more about how to tell when you've hit the baby bear scenario in Goldilocks, where everything is just right. Thank you so much for listening this week! If you're enjoying the podcast, chances are someone else you know who is getting close to retirement could also benefit from checking it out, so please share the show with a friend, a neighbor, your sister, or your boss. Just go to your favorite podcasting app, hit the share icon, then text or email the show link to someone you know who is eyeing retirement. Thanks for sharing the love and spreading the word. I hope you have a blessed Sunday.

This week the Federal Reserve announced another big interest-rate hike with full anticipation that it will cause the unemployment rate to climb. It's the first good-for-workers economy in decades, and the Fed stands prepared to kill it, amid a national clamor over inflation. Is politics really as simple as “it's the economy, stupid?” Or have we built a generation of conventional wisdom around a Goldilocks situation where the economy has to be juuuust so in order for consumers, voters, politicians, and the media to be happy with it? Are we responding to economic conditions as we experience them? Or are we just following the leads laid out for us by media figures and political leaders who can always point to passing problems like high gas prices, or even good problems like lots of job vacancies, and convince millions of people that things are actually bad? Economic sociologist and leader of the Groundwork Collaborative Lindsay Owens joins to discuss how helpful “it's the economy, stupid” is when the economy is always a mess, and whether we can sustain an economy that works.

Don't miss our live episode of Climavores in New York City on October 20! Sign up here for a night of live audio and networking with top voices in climate journalism. We designed our power plants, refineries, and other energy infrastructure to depend on water. But not just any kind of water—water that's available at the right quantity, quality, place and time. When water falls outside of this Goldilocks zone, energy systems can unravel, sometimes in unexpected ways. Low water levels strain hydroelectric and thermal power production and restrict coal shipments by river. Extreme cold freezes water in natural gas infrastructure, causing blackouts. Examples abound. The irony is that the energy system fuels climate change, which in turn fuels water problems for the energy system. So how do we address these vulnerabilities as we decarbonize? And how can we build a resilient water-energy system in an increasingly chaotic climate? In this episode, Shayle talks to Dr. Michael Webber, author of Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival. Michael is a professor of energy resources at the University of Texas-Austin and chief technology officer at Energy Impact Partners, where Shayle is a partner. They cover topics like: The surprising places we use water in energy, like extracting minerals and natural gas, growing crops for biofuels and sequestering carbon The ways energy improves the quantity and quality of water, allowing us to move water longer distances, reach deeper wells and desalinate water How to avoid exacerbating water problems as we decarbonize Whether cheap, abundant electricity from nuclear fusion will power wide-spread desalination Why the data on water systems is so scarce compared to energy systems How prescient the new Mad Max water-war movies are Resources: Yale University Press: Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival The New York Times: Europe's Scorching Summer Puts Unexpected Strain on Energy Supply The New York Times: China's Record Drought Is Drying Rivers and Feeding Its Coal Habit Catalyst is a co-production of Post Script Media and Canary Media.

Synopsis On today's date in 1950, Decca recording engineers committed to disc seven short works by the American composer Leroy Anderson, with Anderson himself conducting top-notch New York freelance musicians. Since 1938, Anderson had been associated with the Boston Pops, for whom he had composed a string of very successful pieces, beginning with “Jazz Pizzicato” and “Jazz Legato,” complimentary works designed for the two sides of a 78-rpm disc. Anderson recorded both those pieces at his 1950 Decca session and also the first performance of a brand-new work, entitled “The Waltzing Cat.” In fact, after 1950 most of Anderson's premieres took place at Decca recording sessions. One of them, “Blue Tango,” sold over a million copies. By 1953, one national survey found that Leroy Anderson was the most-performed American composer of his day. That was the year that Anderson wrote his only extended orchestral work, a Piano Concerto. With the exception of a short-lived Broadway musical from 1958 entitled “Goldilocks,” the bulk of Anderson's works are short, witty orchestral pieces, superbly crafted works intended to make audiences smile. “I just did what I wanted to do,” Anderson once said, “and it turned out that people liked it.” Music Played in Today's Program Leroy Anderson (1908–1975) –Jazz Pizzicato and The Waltzing Cat (Decca studio orchestra; Leroy Anderson, cond.)

Today, we’ll unpack the August national jobs report, which shows job growth as not too hot, not too cold. We’ll also look into who shoulders the burden of the employment slowdown most and who’s coming in off the sidelines of the labor market.
