Canada's health care system is in crisis, particularly when it comes to nursing. The Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario (WeRPN), representing the voices of over 55,000 registered practical nurses (RPNs), is raising the alarm after a new survey has found patient care is being critically compromised due to staffing shortages and the standardization of unsafe workloads. Dianne Martin, CEO of WeRPN joins me to discuss. When's the last time you had a self-worth check up? Jennifer John from the Sacred Space thinks this is is a check up we should do as routinely as we see our family doctor or therapist. A great way to stop self-sabotaging and move yourself out of a rut, a self-worth check up is easy to do and well worth the reward. Jennifer shares how in today's interview. Anne Brodie is here with entertainment, and you will absolutely not want to miss Ron Howard's Thirteen Lives that takes us inside the harrowing story of thirteen soccer players and their coach trapped underground in a cave in Thailand in 2018 and the incredible rescue that followed. Plus she has Prey on Disney+ which is the origin story for Predator, and the formulaic but charming Wedding Season on Netflix. Grandparents in 2022 are not your regular grandparents, they're cool grandparents. Kathy Buckworth has moved from parenting expert to grand parenting expert with her show Go To Grandma that explores different aspects of being a modern grandparent from respecting your kids' way of parenting to finding yourself once you have an empty nest. If there is one thing the pandemic has made crystal clear to people is that life is too short to be in a job you're not happy at. How do you know when you should choose your mental health over you job? Roxanne Francis is here to help. A trained psychotherapist with more than 12 years of experience in the mental health field, Roxanne joins me to discuss what you should be looking for. Finally, Anne Brodie closes out the show with an interview with renowned and beloved British actorJim Broadbent. Broadbent stars in Roger Michell's The Duke, the true - and highly entertaining story of disabled old age pensioner Kempton Bunton who, in 1961, stole Francisco Goya's portrait of The Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London and held it ransom as a political statement. Anne speaks with Broadbent from his home in England.

This week's West Aussie Great is Jan Standen, president of the Grandparents Rearing Grandchildren WA and the 2022 WA Senior Australian of the Year. She spoke about the work her organisation does in helping grandparents provide their grandchildren with positive outcomes, while encouraging them to participate in their lives, and provide a safe stable environment as well as administrative, counselling and legal support. "Your heart sinks to the bottom of your feet when you're chosen against wonderful academics and chosen for a cause that you're very passionate about," she told Gareth Parker on 6PR Breakfast. "Grandparents often get the kids when their children mess up, there isn't a choice... you could have four, five, six kids standing at the door with a police officer one night who says 'these children are in despair, they're in neglect, can you take them?' and you just look at them and say yes. "The grandparents lose their friendship base, their superannuation and houses sometimes if they have to go court to get guardianship for the kids, if it's a very unfair situation.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Human beings are distinctly weird. We live for a very long time after we stop reproducing, move completely differently than all of our closest relatives, lack the power of chimpanzees and other primates but completely outdo most other terrestrial mammals in a contest of endurance. If we think about bodies as hypotheses about the stable features of their ancestral environments, what do the features of our unusual physiology say about what humans ARE, where we come from, the details of our origin story as a profoundly successful species? And what can we learn by telescoping that story forward to explain some of the most persistent puzzles and paradoxes about our health, the way we age, our need for physical exercise, and our nearly ubiquitous aversion to habits that are good for us?Welcome to COMPLEXITY, the official podcast of the Santa Fe Institute. I'm your host, Michael Garfield, and every other week we'll bring you with us for far-ranging conversations with our worldwide network of rigorous researchers developing new frameworks to explain the deepest mysteries of the universe.This week, we sprint into the paleoanthropology, biomechanics, and physiology of exercise with Harvard evolutionary biologist Daniel Lieberman, author of several books including Exercised, The Story of the Human Body, and The Evolution of the Human Head. In our rapid-fire discussion we explore how millions of years as hunter-gatherers equipped hominids with a unique package of adaptations for endurance running, why exercise is so good for us but so generally undesirable, and how physical activity in old age helped shape us into the strongly intergenerational social apes we are today.Be sure to check out our extensive show notes with links to all our references at complexity.simplecast.com.

Ken Wimberly is the founder of LegacyJournal.app, where families use an app to share the stories of their lives so they will live on for future generations. Ken is a serial entrepreneur who has founded seven different successful businesses. Over the past 20 years, Ken has created 15 passive income streams, using his ideology - be a man of action. Today Ken shares why being a man of action will take you places in life you only dreamed of. Many push off their goals and dreams because they wait for the perfect time. There is no ideal time, perfection does not exist, and messy action is always better than no action. Follow along as Ken shares his journey of being a man of action. The first thing Ken will tell you about his life as an entrepreneur is that not every business venture will be successful. What matters is what you take away from experience. One of Ken's first experiences as an entrepreneur ended up in bankruptcy. Realizing that everything is a learning curve, Ken took the positive and used the negative to make better decisions in the future. Out of all the different ventures Ken has been involved in, the Legacy Journal App is the one with which he shares a strong connection. When Ken was a new father, he knew he wanted to document the experiences and milestones his daughter was having. When his daughter was ten months old, he committed to writing down short stories of all the highlights and the exciting new milestones she was experiencing. After a while, he realized he was creating a journal filled with beautiful memories for his children and family to cherish. As with most start-up companies, new ventures begin with an idea. What sets a successful entrepreneur apart from the rest is being flexible in thinking and willing to shift when necessary. When Ken started the Legacy Journal, his market research dictated that they should market towards moms of larger families, mostly middle to upper financial brackets. Ken collected data on who was the primary user of the app. Research showed that Grandparents were the highest percentage of users. Like every successful business person, Ken shifted strategies and marketing to target his primary user. Another challenge startup companies face, especially in the digital space, is monetization. How do you monetize your great idea, your app? When the Legacy Journal was still in the beta stage in 2019, Ken looked at different pricing models and settled on one. After a year, Ken realized that moving the company forward and increasing revenue would require a change. He needed to change the application's structure so that it would be a streamlined process on the front and back end. These are all considerations that every business owner goes through. To succeed, you need to focus on taking chances and not being afraid to shift gears.Every successful entrepreneur will say that the road to success is paved with missteps. Ken Wimberly shares his story of mistakes and good fortune in this One Big Tip podcast episode. In this episode:[2:05] Ken shares his story on past business venturesBeing able to pull the good out of a bad situation is a key skill for every entrepreneurExperience is the best way to gain knowledge[5:15]. There is life after failureDon't be afraid to take chancesSometimes, the biggest mistakes are the springboard for the biggest successes[9:20] How the concept of the Legacy Journal was bornDocumenting milestones allows you to share them with those you loveSlowing down to appreciate what you're going through creates a rich history[14:20] Successful business people know when to shift gearsSometimes walking away from a venture that isn't working is the best ideaAllow your thinking to change with your marketSupport the show

Jewel for the Journey: “Do you listen to your grandparents? Do you open your hearts to the memories that your grandparents pass on? Grandparents are like the wisdom of the family; they are the wisdom of a people. And a people that does listen to grandparents is one that dies! Listen to your grandparents. Mary and Joseph are the family, sanctified by the presence of Jesus who is the fulfilment of all God's promises. Like the Holy Family of Nazareth, every family is part of the history of a people; it cannot exist without the generations who have gone before it. Therefore, today we have grandparents and children. The children learn from their grandparents, from the previous generation.” – Pope Francis, during the Year of Faith in 2013. Like what you hear? Would you like to support Journeys of Hope?

Being a grandparent is such a blessing, however, comes with a great responsibility! How can Christian grandparents be more intentional about their faith and leave a lasting legacy of faith in their grandkids and peers? How do we, as pastors, minister to those older than us? How might we encourage them and teach them how they can minister to their grandkids, whether or not their kids are Christian?

This Sunday, July 24, the Church marks the Second World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly. And this weekend, in the interview segment of “Vatican Insider, I replay my conversation of last July with Catherine Wiley, grandmother and founder of Catholic Grandparents Association (CGA) and Marilyn Henry who coordinates CGA in the United States. Both women are grandmothers and both have exceptional lives and stories Catherine was truly the catalyst for this now annual World Day. For years, she had an idea, a dream that, after meetings with Vatican officials and Pope Francis, culminated in last year's First World Day of Grandparents and the Elderly. A great story of love and determination! And teamwork with Marilyn at her side!

On World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, Catholics recognize the importance of engaging the 'backbone of our parishes' (0:02) The narrator offers depressing statistics about the state of elder loneliness in America, including one statistic that shows up to a quarter of those 65 and older are considered “socially isolated,” which comes with its own set of health risks. The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated these trends. (1:51) One Family of Parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit has decided to do something about this, building community by starting with the heads of families — seniors. The movement began with Pope Francis declaring a worldwide celebration of World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on the fourth Sunday in July. (2:55) Cindy Portis, Christian service coordinator at St. Colette Parish in Livonia and evangelical charity coordinator for the Northwest Wayne 2 Family of Parishes, talks about the importance of engaging seniors at the parish level. Portis contends its this group that's likely to evangelize their family members. (4:09) Portis describes a new senior group at the Family of Parishes, called “Seasoned Saints.” Portis explains the significance of the name and describes its purpose. (5:22) At the first meeting in March, attendees were visibly excited, Portis said. For many, it was the first chance to get out of isolation after a long COVID winter. The group got to work planning activities and outings throughout the year, including monthly themes. (8:41) Eighty-three people showed up to the first meeting, ages 68 to 101. Portis talks about the collective wisdom of the group, which combined holds a wealth of knowledge and experience from decades of life lessons. (10:00) Liam Neary and his wife, Charlotte, were among the attendees. In their 80s, the couple describe themselves as “roamin' Catholics” but say they've found a home within the group at St. Colette. (12:15) Liam and Charlotte volunteered during the COVID-19 pandemic to call and check in on lonely seniors, including those in hospice. They describe themselves as “lucky,” because they still have each other. (12:41) Sandy MacLeod, 82, of St. Kenneth Parish in Plymouth, describes the companionship she found with “Seasoned Saints.” MacLeod lost her husband in 2007, and was never able to have children. To her, the group is a breath of fresh air. (15:03) The narrator describes the value of seniors to the Catholic community, the glue holding the parish together. They are volunteers, family matriarchs and patriarchs, and faithful prayer warriors who hold their church in prayer. As the narrator says, “Today, let's celebrate them.” Reporting, script and narration by Casey McCorry; production by Ron Pangborn This episode of Detroit Stories is brought to you by our friends at Catholic Funeral and Cemetery Services, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Detroit.

This Sunday we celebrate the second World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly with the theme: “In Old Age They Will Still Bear Fruit” to emphasize how grandparents and the elderly are a precious gift to their families and all of society. Pope Francis reminds us that Sacred Scripture refers to the elderly as “filled with days” and have wisdom to offer us. May we consider two things this weekend: first, remember your grandparents, with a visit, if living, and with prayers if deceased; and second, seek out those elderly persons who feel alone. While youth and energy are good things, some wisdom only matures in time. May our grandparents and elderly friends know how much we love them and may they continue to bear abundant fruit in our midst.

(02:11 - 04:48) We reflect on how our connectedness with our grandparents helps us understand that we represent our families of origin and our family of faith and note how our grandparents' experiences of life across generations contain a unique wisdom. Former guest, Eileen Newell shares how her relationship with her Irish grandmother strengthened her faith. (04:49 - 05:56) Calling back to the examples of Sts. Anne and Joachim, we invite all grandparents listening to remember their importance, authority, and unique role in sharing the faith. We also invite listeners to reach out to their grandparents and celebrate the connectedness of family.

The values her family and church instilled in her as a young girl are ones Shirley still holds dear: generosity, kindness, and empathy. In the Mennonite community, she says, “a child in need was everyone's problem to solve, not only the parents. If I saw a ‘plain person' in a long dress or wearing a bonnet or a plain suit on the street, I would never have hesitated to ask for a ride, for information or even for money. All through my childhood I was being trained to be that same kind of beacon of kindness for others.” That beacon of kindness shines brightly in the recently released book, The Mindful Grandparent: The Art of Loving Our Children's Children, which Shirley co-wrote with Marilyn McEntyre. It's a guide to helping grandchildren live with intention and be attentive to others, to nature, and to the diverse, beautiful, and troubled social world around them. The Mindful Grandparent covers wide-ranging topics such as cultivating curiosity, giving meaningful gifts, helping children explore difficult topics, building a grandparent team, honoring adult children's boundaries, and managing technology.
