Drew McIntyre returns to WrestleRant Radio this week for an exclusive interview with Graham "GSM" Matthews talking his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match with Roman Reigns at Clash at the Castle, why he's the man to take the title, his character development in recent months, his experience working house shows and who helped him the most, his incredible journey, his positive take on part-timers in WWE, and more! GSM and RJ Marceau are also breaking down what was a fairly quiet week in wrestling, starting with the latest teases for "The White Rabbit" in WWE. All signs are pointing to it being Bray Wyatt, and as exciting as that is, what will Wyatt do upon his return and who will he feud with first? In their review of Raw, they discuss Damage CTRL's booking so far, a non-update on Sasha Banks and Naomi, Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins rekindling their rivalry, why Austin Theory should be more protected, what's next for Omos, Candice LeRae's return and her potential involvement in a women's WarGames match, a possible AJ Styles and Roman Reigns rivalry looming, and Edge challenging Finn Balor to an "I Quit" match at Extreme Rules. Plus, hear their two cents on Wednesday's edition of AEW Dynamite including Chris Jericho taking aim at Ring of Honor and Saraya's lackluster first promo.

In an interview from last month's WWE live event in Springfield, MA, Kofi Kingston joins Graham "GSM" Matthews to kick off WrestleRant Radio this week to talk his experience with house shows and how they've helped him, why they were integral to the early development to The New Day, coming up on his 15-year anniversary on the main roster, and more!

Get my 9 page OTs Map to the World of Pelvic Health.Meet me on the OTs for Pelvic Health Facebook Group!Check Out More OT Pelvic Health Content here.Find me on IG! @functionalpelvis-- Transcript --The wide world of pelvic health -- if this is a new specialty for you, then this episode may be illuminating because I remember when I first learned about Pelvic Health, the field seemed quite focused and specific. Many of the OTs I speak with assume that to work in PH, you mainly work with pregnant or expecting people. I Have to admit that most of my stories and points of reference are also around pre and postnatal ppl. The FP, my company, was the first pp in Manhattan owned by an OT and the pre and postnatal community was my sole focus. So naturally it was my point of ref for everything . I get a lot of questions from OTs about whether that's the only population you can work with in this field, so that's what I want to focus on today. This episode is Meant to arouse your curiosity.. And Inspire you to think outside the box. You can implement Fundamental pelvic health techniques in a variety of communities and settings. It's not an all or nothing approach. After all, we are OTs, and we are only limited by our ability to problem solve with our clients. And we can problem solve with every single one of them.This is by no means will this be an exhaustive list but I will do my best to present a wide array. If there is something I have left out, please reach out to me via email or via social media and I will gladly add your additions to a future episode!There are a few different ways we can look at the subspecialties of PF. The first is from the communities we can serve. The ones we will be reviewing today are “ people going through puberty, prenatal, postnatal, perimenopause, men, pediatrics, oncology, elderly, men's health, LGBTQIA+ athletes, ostomy care. Basically if you have a pelvis, we can support you! Let's get into the details of this now.The first was those of us working with clients in a period of life where there are in transitions: this would include puberty and pre puberty clients, there's the pre and postnatal communities and my heart is absolutely here with this vastly underserved population. Likewise, there's perimenopause and menopausal people. Actually, all of these are underserved individuals who could use our support. These are periods in our life when our Hormones are in such flux and that has an influence on our pelvic floor function. For example, both with lactating people and with perimenopausal people, estrogen is traditionally in decline, and this affects our PF's ability to be as buoyant, responsive and supple. During the menopause years specifically, These tissue changes and their symptoms are often referred to as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), and some tell-tale signs include pain with sex, vaginal dryness, and urinary incontinence! (Side-note: some providers may use the term vaginal atrophy instead of GSM). A very similar albeit temporary process happens to people who are lactating. In terms of supporting pre and postnatal people, we can offer birthing rehearsals that help prepare the birthing person for optimal delivery such as optimizing the uterus and ab wall to help push the baby out vs what many people think which is that the vagina pushes the baby out. Quite the opposite, the vagina actually relaxes and gets out of the way for optimal delivery. Postpartum care can help with the ADLS of being a new parent and all that goes with that. Many OTs specialize in the m&
Making his WrestleRant Radio debut this week is WWE's Mr. Money in the Bank Austin Theory! He talks to Graham "GSM" Matthews about how he's benefited from working the live events, feuding with Dolph Ziggler, getting a reaction, growing up a fan, liking having one name, and more! RJ Marceau then joins GSM to share their thoughts on this year's PWI 500, including Roman Reigns topping the list and Jon Moxley's odd placement. From there, they break down NXT 2.0 celebrating one year and if the brand ultimately exceeded their expectations with the new stars that were made. However, is a return to the black and gold imminent? They also have thoughts on Solo Sikoa winning the NXT North American Championship, why Edge and Rey Mysterio's rivalry with The Judgment Day needs to end, Damage CTRL cutting short Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah's reign as WWE Women's Tag Team Champions, Johnny Gargano's successful in-ring Raw singles debut, and if Kevin Owens could win the Money in the Bank contract from Austin Theory. Plus, predictions for next Wednesday's Grand Slam edition of AEW Dynamite!

The Wine Thieves are finally back with a new episode, perfect for the late summer, at least in the northern hemisphere, in which we share some cool news and information on the white wines of Australia. Many picture Australia as a warm country with beautiful beaches and great surfing, well suited to heat-loving red grapes like grenache, shiraz and mourvèdre (aka mataro) that make up the classic GSM blend, and rightfully so. But this episode looks at some lesser-know, future classic white wines. John and Sara steer clear of chardonnay, despite the many excellent examples, and concentrate instead on the new wave of eclectic and lively whites emerging across the country. Our special guests are Con-Greg Grigoriou, winemaker and partner at the Delinquente Wine Co. based in Riverland, and the legendary Louisa Rose, head winemaker for Hill-Smith Family Vineyards, which includes includes Pewsey Vale, and, most famously, Yalumba. Grigoriou has set Deliquente apart from much of the bulk production the Riverland region is better known for, by pushing boundaries and making non-conformist wines in every sense of the word from unconventional varieties like arinto, malvasia bianco, fiano, bianco d'alessano, and vermentino. Pewsey Vale, on the other hand, put Eden Valley on the world map for riesling. At the same time, Louisa has created an identity for viognier at Yalumba, the first southern hemisphere winery to produce wine from the variety in a style that Rose has been perfecting it for the last twenty years.Hot or not, wherever you may be listening in the world, this episode will leave you craving a glass of refreshing Australian white wine.

Before he teams up with Edge at Clash at the Castle this Saturday, WWE Raw Superstar Rey Mysterio stops by WrestleRant Radio to chat with Graham "GSM" Matthews about his A&E doc, reuniting with Edge, if a split from Dominik Mysterio is coming, if a full-on run in NXT was in the cards earlier this year, thoughts on Santos Escobar, winning the WWE Championship in 2011, his favorite match since returning to WWE in 2018, and more! GSM and RJ Marceau then dive deep into all of the action coming up this weekend, starting with WWE Clash at the Castle! Hear their thoughts on whether Dominik Mysterio will turn on his father and Edge to join The Judgment Day, the finals of the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship Tournament from Monday's Raw, the excellent last-minute build for Matt Riddle vs. Seth Rollins, Shayna Baszler's chances of becoming SmackDown Women's Champion, Gunther vs. Sheamus for the Intercontinental Championship, and if Roman Reigns' run as Undisputed WWE Universal Championship will finally be coming to an end at the hands of Drew McIntyre. The duo also give their complete predictions for NXT's World Collide event on Sunday afternoon (including who they see walking out as the unified champions) before breaking down the card for AEW All Out. From the ultimate winners of the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament to where Daniel Garcia's allegiance will lie to Jon Moxley and CM Punk colliding in a rematch for the AEW World Championship, they're analyzing it all.
This is the weekly newspaper column.Pinot noir, chardonnay blends 8-31-2022Many great wines are blends. Red Bordeaux is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and a smattering of other reds. Southern Rhône GSM wines are grenache, syrah, mourvèdre blends. In whites, sauvignon blanc and semillon enjoy a classic marriage.When it comes to chardonnay and pinot noir, not nearly so much. In Burgundy, pinot noir and chardonnay cannot legally be blends. With exceptions, that is true elsewhere, even when it is not illegal.Ah, but always exceptions. Pinot noir and chardonnay are usually blended in Champagne. Champagne, however, is a distinctive style and method of making. It is the exception that highlights the rule.Sanford Winery La Rinconda VineyardAsk a pinot noir or chardonnay maker why they do not blend, and the answer almost always is “the grape is perfect just as it is.” Makers will insist their wines don't have many—or any—holes to be filled with another variety. Pinot noir makers will snort that blending anything with their delicate, hard-to-grow grape lays waste to its structure and elegance.There is a caveat. Lower-end, mass-produced pinot noir, especially from California, often is blended with zinfandel or other abundant, cheaper varieties. That is not done to improve quality but to increase production—if 75 percent of the blend is pinot noir, you can call it pinot noir in the U.S. Needless to say, such wines do not employ the highest quality pinot noir grapes. And, needless to say, that is why they don't taste like pure pinot noir.Another exception surprisingly comes from Beaujolais, a sub-region of Burgundy. There, pinot noir blends with gamay to create an entry-level wine: Coteaux Bourgignon, an appellation created in 2011. That wine often is made when there is a weak vintage of pinot noir.You also can find pinot noir and chardonnay as small additions to any number of wines, but this column is about varietally-labeled bottles.Higher-end pinot noir and chardonnay makers can have reputations as part of the snobbery coterie of the trade. They have no problem with that. They are not trying to blend in.Tasting notes:• Metz Road Riverview Vineyard Pinot Noir, Monterey 2019: Single-vineyard, supple, light and airy pinot. $30-35 Link to my review• Sanford Winery Estate Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills Appellation 2019: Rich, opulent pure chardonnay effort. $40-45 Link to my reviewLast round: Why are bacteria so bad at math? Because they multiply by dividing.

Your background informs your now.That's what Colby Joyner has experienced, going from the auto industry to the Air Force, to being an air traffic controller, to a massage therapist and then back into the auto industry both on the dealer and partner sides. It's allowed him to see things in a different light and helped him as he organizes and automates processes.What we talk about in this episode:0:00 Intro with Michael Cirillo, Paul J Daly and Kyle Mountsier.5:50 Colby started selling cars when he was 18, then went off, did a whole lot of other things and found his way back to the industry years later.14:54 Situational change increases resiliency.18:08 Learning the stories of your team makes you a better team member and a better team as a whole.“The more that you get deeper than surface level on this on this, you know, I'm the GSM, or I'm a sales manager, or I'm a finance manager, if you go below that, right, and you get to know people and actually become friendly with them and understand who they are, you're able to learn a lot more about life and everything outside of automotive, which makes you better in automotive. And that's the interesting thing about automotive is it's where this hodgepodge of people, you know, that come from so many different and various backgrounds, and the more that you communicate, the better that we all are.”27:27 Currently, Colby is working on Konect.ai, an automation that working in the background without the dealer having to check it or interact with it. It works in concert with the team, freeing them up to focus on the human side of business.“And so if you were able to automate portions of that process, you free up the human being to be a human being, and engage in relationship style sales. And so our job is to create that lift of engagement, that lift of opportunities coming into the store, and being able to actually speak with a salesperson one on one. And that's where you're gonna get that, that higher brand and or dealer loyalty, when you get that situated.”⭐️ Love the podcast? Please leave us a review here — even one sentence helps!

Geïnspireerd door de podcast over de het Olavspad ging Bart Klingele uit België routes middendoor Noorwegen maken. Hij fietste in juli jl. op zijn E-bike zo'n 1.700 km met veel hoogtemeters (22.000 hm). Het was een avontuurlijke tocht, met helaas ook pech. Zo viel zijn GSM en ging zijn fietsriem kapot. Maar Bart bleef positief en kon ook van het vele natuurschoon genieten. Veel inspiratie en luisterplezier!

When people hear the name John Z. DeLorean (JZD) whether they are a car enthusiast or not, they will tend to associate it with the DMC-12 automobile made famous by the Back to the Future franchise. Most people don't realize how much of an influence JZD had on the automotive industry as a whole. His level of vision and talent exceeded many. Quoted as the godfather of the muscle car era when he introduced the legendary Pontiac GTO, he was always toying with the idea of his biggest venture, the “DeLorean Motor Company” (DMC), which in 1975 he began to realize. With full control, John was able to work on any concepts without restrictions. His first and only creation would be the DMC-12. And with us tonight is returning Guest Don Weberg Founder and Publisher of Garage Style Magazine, to share with us, his true confessions as a DeLorean owner.

Since 2007, GSM has been the definitive source for car collectors, continually delivering information about Automobilia, Petroliana, Events and more... because after all, what doesn't belong in your garage?
On a super special Saturday edition of WrestleRant Radio, Graham "GSM" Matthews and RJ Marceau report live from Nashville for SummerSlam weekend! In addition to GSM's interview with SmackDown Women's Champion Liv Morgan, they're talking everything they've been up to in Nashville, Vince McMahon retiring from WWE and Triple H taking over as the head of Creative, if and when we'll start to see true change in the company on television, what will happen with Seth Rollins and Riddle and rumors of Rollins facing someone else entirely, if Pat McAfee and Logan Paul will win their respective matches, The Judgement Day needing to beat The Mysterios and if we'll see Edge pop up, why The Street Profits could win the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship, why Liv Morgan retaining her title is a must, if we could see a double turn in Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch for the Raw Women's Championship, and booking the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship main event between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Could Theory cash in? Regardless, who's walking out with the gold?!
Yet another WWE Hall of Famer is back on WrestleRant Radio this week, and it's none other than Goldberg! Graham "GSM" Matthews' exclusive chat with the multi-time world champion covers his episode of A&E's Biography: WWE Legends and showing a new side to himself, staying in shape and keeping busy, if he's content with closing his career the way he did against Roman Reigns, potential opponents he may want to face, thoughts on the Wardlow comparisons, and more!

Ce n'est pas la première fois que nous vous racontons des histoires où tech et rebondissements spectaculaires se croisent. Aujourd'hui ne fait pas exception à la règle puisqu'une montre d'Apple aurait tout simplement sauvé la vie d'une nageuse coincée dans l'eau d'une rivière à 13 degrés. Une histoire qui prouve à nouveau que la technologie est un allié précieux, et dont je vous raconte le déroulement dans cet épisode. Le 15 juin dernier, à Dalles, dans l'état d'Oregon aux États-Unis, une jeune femme de 25 ans décide d'aller nager dans la rivière Columbia. Au cours de sa séance de natation, elle se coince malencontreusement le pied sous un rocher. Réalisant qu'elle ne peut plus bouger, elle a le réflexe d'appeler les secours grâce à son Apple Watch. Une demi-heure plus tard, les secours arrivent. Un officier de police descend alors dans la rivière pour lui libérer le pied et l'aider à regagner la berge saine et sauve, bien que très fatiguée et en état d'hypothermie. En effet, 30 minutes dans une eau à 13 degrés est une situation qui fait refroidir le corps à une vitesse anormalement rapide. Ça, c'est pour l'histoire. Mais concrètement, comment cette jeune femme a-t-elle pu prévenir les secours avec sa montre ? Et bien en activant la fonction « appel d'urgence ». La montre est alors entrée en contact avec les pompiers et policiers les plus proches, indiquant la localisation exacte de la nageuse. Malheureusement, seule une petite partie des Apple Watch possèdent cette option, en l'occurrence les modèles compatibles eSIM pouvant se connecter à un réseau GSM de façon autonome. Les montres compatibles 4G sont facilement reconnaissable puisqu'elles possèdent une petite couronne digitale dont l'intérieur est rouge. Les autres peuvent appeler les secours sans connexion WiFi, mais uniquement à l'aide du smartphone auquel elles sont associées. À noter que ce n'est pas la première fois qu'une montre connectée signée Apple sauve la vie d'une personne. En février dernier, un homme tombé de son vélo électrique en pleine nuit a pu être sauvé lui aussi en activant l'option Appel d'urgence. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Kama kichwa cha habari kinavyosema, Engineer Hersi ndo chachu ya furaha kwa mashabiki wa moja ya timu kongwe kabisa ya Taifa hili, timu ya wananchi, timu yenye mataji mengi zaidi yaani mabingwa wa ki historia. Nikiwa kama shabiki wa Simba Sports Club basi sina la zaidi la kufanya ila kumpa mtani wangu Hongera ya kuongeza taji jengine kwenye historia yao na pia kumsifu round hii kwa kutuzuia kuchukua ubingwa kwa mara ya tano MFULULIZO.Engineer Hersi Ally Saidi aliingia pale kwa njia ya mdhamini (GSM) ila baada ya kuonekana kazi nzuri ambayo ameifanya kwa kipindi cha miaka miwili, Yanga sasa inaingia katika mchakato wa kuifanya timu iwe na muekezaji na mchakato huo yeye ndiye ambaye anauongoza. Kama mshabiki wa klabu, suala la GSM kuwa mdhamini mkuu kulileta chachu ya yeye kuweza kuongoza mabadiliko hayo ambayo yataanza hivi karibuni. Na yeye ndiye anatabiriwa kuwa Rais wa klabu yake pendwa baada ya uchaguzi ambao utafanyika mwezi ujao.Narudia tena, kama shabiki wa SIMBA, mchakato ambao watani wetu wanaenda nao mmoja anaweza kuwa kakaa mbali na kutamani tu yale ambayo yanaendelea na kuomba (kwa nia njema) wenzetu wafanikiwe zaidi ya pale ambapo sisi tulifika kwenye mabadiliko hayo. SIMBA ndo ilikua timu ya kwanza kwenda kwenye mchakato huu ila inaonekana kama kuna sehemu zoezi limekwama na maswali mengi yamekua yakijitokeza na kuulizwa na baadhi ya mashabiki, mashabiki ambao pia wengi wao ni watu wenye vyeo na mamlaka. Tena, yangu matumaini wenzetu wataweza kukamilisha zoezi hili mpaka mwisho ili wengine waweze kujifunza.Engineer pia ni Engineer, Baba, Kaka, Rafiki na mtu poa sana, mfanya biashara pia kwa upande wake mwengine wa maisha. Ametoka katika familia ambayo ilihakikisha anapata elimu na kuwa mfano bora kwa jamii ambayo inamzunguka. Amekua Baba mzuri kwa watoto wake watatu, Engineer mzuri kwenye kazi yake, moja ya kazi yake ni ile HQ ya GSM pale mtaa wa Samora na kiongozi BORA mbele ya macho ya wana Yanga Afrika.Niliongea nae pia kuhusu maoni yake kwenye suala la mfupi wa elimu hapa Tanzania na kama huwa anasaidia maoni yake hasa kwenye kitengo cha elimu ya ufundi zaidi ukichukulia yeye ni mmoja wa uzawa wa shule za ufundi.Yangu matumaini basi uta enjoy na kujifunza jambo kama ilivyo kawaida yetu.

Lars Magnus Ericsson was working for the Swedish government that made telegraph equipment in the 1870s when he started a little telegraph repair shop in 1976. That was the same year the telephone was invented. After fixing other people's telegraphs and then telephones he started a company making his own telephone equipment. He started making his own equipment and by the 1890s was shipping gear to the UK. As the roaring 20s came, they sold stock to buy other companies and expanded quickly. Early mobile devices used radios to connect mobile phones to wired phone networks and following projects like ALOHANET in the 1970s they expanded to digitize communications, allowing for sending early forms of text messages, the way people might have sent those telegraphs when old Lars was still alive and kicking. At the time, the Swedish state-owned Televerket Radio was dabbling in this space and partnered with Ericsson to take first those messages then as email became a thing, email, to people wirelessly using the 400 to 450 MHz range in Europe and 900 MHz in the US. That standard went to the OSI and became a 1G wireless packet switching network we call Mobitex. Mike Lazaridis was born in Istanbul and moved to Canada in 1966 when he was five, attending the University of Waterloo in 1979. He dropped out of school to take a contract with General Motors to build a networked computer display in 1984. He took out a loan from his parents, got a grant from the Canadian government, and recruited another electrical engineering student, Doug Fregin from the University of Windsor, who designed the first circuit boards. to join him starting a company they called Research in Motion. Mike Barnstijn joined them and they were off to do research. After a few years doing research projects, they managed to build up a dozen employees and a million in revenues. They became the first Mobitex provider in America and by 1991 shipped the first Mobitex device. They brought in James Balsillie as co-CEO, to handle corporate finance and business development in 1992, a partnership between co-CEOs that would prove fruitful for 20 years. Some of those work-for-hire projects they'd done involved reading bar codes so they started with point-of-sale, enabling mobile payments and by 1993 shipped RIMGate, a gateway for Mobitex. Then a Mobitex point-of-sale terminal and finally with the establishment of the PCMCIA standard, a PCMCIP Mobitex modem they called Freedom. Two-way paging had already become a thing and they were ready to venture out of PoS systems. So in 1995, they took a $5 million investment to develop the RIM 900 OEM radio modem. They also developed a pager they called the Inter@ctive Pager 900 that was capable of two-way messaging the next year. Then they went public on the Toronto Stock Exchange in 1997. The next year, they sold a licensing deal to IBM for the 900 for $10M dollars. That IBM mark of approval is always a sign that a company is ready to play in an enterprise market. And enterprises increasingly wanted to keep executives just a quick two-way page away. But everyone knew there was a technology convergence on the way. They worked with Ericsson to further the technology and over the next few years competed with SkyTel in the interactive pager market. Enter The Blackberry They knew there was something new coming. Just as the founders know something is coming in Quantum Computing and run a fund for that now. They hired a marketing firm called Lexicon Branding to come up with a name and after they saw the keys on the now-iconic keyboard, the marketing firm suggested BlackBerry. They'd done the research and development and they thought they had a product that was special. So they released the first BlackBerry 850 in Munich in 1999. But those were still using radio networks and more specifically the DataTAC network. The age of mobility was imminent, although we didn't call it that yet. Handspring and Palm each went public in 2000. In 2000, Research In Motion brought its first cellular phone product in the BlackBerry 957, with push email and internet capability. But then came the dot com bubble. Some thought the Internet might have been a fad and in fact might disappear. But instead the world was actually ready for that mobile convergence. Part of that was developing a great operating system for the time when they released the BlackBerry OS the year before. And in 2000 the BlackBerry was named Product of the Year by InfoWorld. The new devices took the market by storm and shattered the previous personal information manager market, with shares of that Palm company dropping by over 90% and Palm OS being setup as it's own corporation within a couple of years. People were increasingly glued to their email. While the BlackBerry could do web browsing and faxing over the internet, it was really the integrated email access, phone, and text messaging platform that companies like General Magic had been working on as far back as the early 1990s. The Rise of the BlackBerry The BlackBerry was finally the breakthrough mobile product everyone had been expecting and waiting for. Enterprise-level security, integration with business email like Microsoft's Exchange Server, a QWERTY keyboard that most had grown accustomed to, the option to use a stylus, and a simple menu made the product an instant smash success. And by instant we mean after five years of research and development and a massive financial investment. The Palm owned the PDA market. But the VII cost $599 and the BlackBerry cost $399 at the time (which was far less than the $675 Inter@ctive Pager had cost in the 1990s). The Palm also let us know when we had new messages using the emerging concept of push notifications. 2000 had seen the second version of the BlackBerry OS and their AOL Mobile Communicator had helped them spread the message that the wealthy could have access to their data any time. But by 2001 other carriers were signing on to support devices and BlackBerry was selling bigger and bigger contracts. 5,000 devices, 50,000 devices, 100,000 devices. And a company called Kasten Chase stepped in to develop a secure wireless interface to the Defense Messaging System in the US, which opened up another potential two million people in the defense industry They expanded the service to cover more and more geographies in 2001 and revenues doubled, jumping to 164,000 subscribers by the end of the year. That's when they added wireless downloads so could access all those MIME attachments in email and display them. Finally, reading PDFs on a phone with the help of GoAmerica Communications! And somehow they won a patent for the idea that a single email address could be used on both a mobile device and a desktop. I guess the patent office didn't understand why IMAP was invented by Mark Crispin at Stanford in the 80s, or why Exchange allowed multiple devices access to the same mailbox. They kept inking contracts with other companies. AT&T added the BlackBerry in 2002 in the era of GSM. The 5810 was the first truly convergent BlackBerry that offered email and a phone in one device with seamless SMS communications. It shipped in the US and the 5820 in Europe and Cingular Wireless jumped on board in the US and Deutsche Telekom in Germany, as well as Vivendi in France, Telecom Italia in Italy, etc. The devices had inched back up to around $500 with service fees ranging from $40 to $100 plus pretty limited data plans. The Tree came out that year but while it was cool and provided a familiar interface to the legions of Palm users, it was clunky and had less options for securing communications. The NSA signed on and by the end of the year they were a truly global operation, raking in revenues of nearly $300 million. The Buying Torndado They added web-based application in 2003, as well as network printing. They moved to a Java-based interface and added the 6500 series, adding a walkie-talkie function. But that 6200 series at around $200 turned out to be huge. This is when they went into that thing a lot of companies do - they started suing companies like Good and Handspring for infringing on patents they probably never should have been awarded. They eventually lost the cases and paid out tens of millions of dollars in damages. More importantly they took their eyes off innovating, a common mistake in the history of computing companies. Yet there were innovations. They released Blackberry Enterprise Server in 2004 then bolted on connectors to Exchange, Lotus Domino, and allowed for interfacing with XML-based APIs in popular enterprise toolchains of the day. They also later added support for GroupWise. That was one of the last solutions that worked with symmetric key cryptography I can remember using and initially required the devices be cradled to get the necessary keys to secure communications, which then worked over Triple-DES, common at the time. One thing we never liked was that messages did end up living at Research in Motion, even if encrypted at the time. This is one aspect that future types of push communications would resolve. And Microsoft Exchange's ActiveSync. By 2005 there were CVEs filed for BlackBerry Enterprise Server, racking up 17 in the six years that product shipped up to 5.0 in 2010 before becoming BES 10 and much later Blackberry Enterprise Mobility Management, a cross-platform mobile device management solution. Those BES 4 and 5 support contracts, or T-Support, could cost hundreds of dollars per incident. Microsoft had Windows Mobile clients out that integrated pretty seamlessly with Exchange. But people loved their Blackberries. Other device manufacturers experimented with different modes of interactivity. Microsoft made APIs for pens and keyboards that flipped open. BlackBerry added a trackball in 2006, that was always kind of clunky. Nokia, Ericsson, Motorola, and others were experimenting with new ways to navigate devices, but people were used to menus and even styluses. And they seemed to prefer a look and feel that seemed like what they used for the menuing control systems on HVAC controls, video games, and even the iPod. The Eye Of The Storm A new paradigm was on the way. Apple's iPhone was released in 2007 and Google's Android OS in 2008. By then the BlackBerry Pearl was shipping and it was clear which devices were better. No one saw the two biggest threats coming. Apple was a consumer company. They were slow to add ActiveSync policies, which many thought would be the corporate answer to mobile management as group policies in Active Directory had become for desktops. Apple and Google were slow to take the market, as BlackBerry continued to dominate the smartphone industry well into 2010, especially once then-president Barack Obama strong-armed the NSA into allowing him to use a special version of the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition for official communiques. Other world leaders followed suit, as did the leaders of global companies that had previously been luddites when it came to constantly being online. Even Eric Schmidt, then chairman of google loved his Crackberry in 2013, 5 years after the arrival of Android. Looking back, we can see a steady rise in iPhone sales up to the iPhone 4, released in 2010. Many still said they loved the keyboard on their BlackBerries. Organizations had built BES into their networks and had policies dating back to NIST STIGs. Research in Motion owned the enterprise and held over half the US market and a fifth of the global market. That peaked in 2011. BlackBerry put mobility on the map. But companies like AirWatch, founded in 2003 and MobileIron, founded in 2007, had risen to take a cross-platform approach to the device management aspect of mobile devices. We call them Unified Endpoint Protection products today and companies could suddenly support BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and iPhones from a single console. Over 50 million Blackberries were being sold a year and the stock was soaring at over $230 a share. Today, they hold no market share and their stock performance shows it. Even though they've pivoted to more of a device management company, given their decades of experience working with some of the biggest and most secure companies and governments in the world. The Fall Of The BlackBerry The iPhone was beautiful. It had amazing graphics and a full touch screen. It was the very symbol of innovation. The rising tide of the App Store also made it a developers playground (no pun intended). It was more expensive than the Blackberry, but while they didn't cater to the enterprise, they wedged their way in there with first executives and then anyone. Initially because of ActiveSync, which had come along in 1996 mostly to support Windows Mobile, but by Exchange Server 2003 SP 2 could do almost anything Outlook could do - provided software developers like Apple could make the clients work. So by 2011, Exchange clients could automatically locate a server based on an email address (or more to the point based on DNS records for the domain) and work just as webmail, which was open in almost every IIS implementation that worked with Exchange. And Office365 was released in 2011, paving the way to move from on-prem Exchange to what we now call “the cloud.” And Google Mail had been around for 7 years by then and people were putting it on the BlackBerry as well, blending home and office accounts on the same devices at times. In fact, Google licensed Exchange ActiveSync, or EAS in 2009 so support for Gmail was showing up on a variety of devices. BlackBerry had everything companies wanted. But people slowly moved to that new iPhone. Or Androids when decent models of phones started shipping with the OS on them. BlackBerry stuck by that keyboard, even though it was clear that people wanted full touchscreens. The BlackBerry Bold came out in 2009. BlackBerry had not just doubled down with the keyboard instead of full touchscreen, but they tripled down on it. They had released the Storm in 2008 and then the Storm in 2009 but they just had a different kind of customer. Albeit one that was slowly starting to retire. This is the hard thing about being in the buying tornado. We're so busy transacting that we can't think ahead to staying in the eye that we don't see how the world is changing outside of it. As we saw with companies like Amdahl and Control Data, when we only focus on big customers and ignore the mass market we leave room for entrants in our industries who have more mass appeal. Since the rise of the independent software market following the IBM anti-trust cases, app developers have been a bellwether of successful platforms. And the iPhone revenue split was appealing to say the least. Sales fell off fast. By 2012, the BlackBerry represented less than 6 percent of smartphones sold and by the start of 2013 that number dropped in half, falling to less than 1 percent in 2014. That's when the White House tested replacements for the Blackberry. There was a small bump in sales when they finally released a product that had competitive specs to the iPhone, but it was shortly lived. The Crackberry craze was officially over. BlackBerry shot into the mainstream and brought the smartphone with them. They made the devices secure and work seamlessly in corporate environments and for those who could pay money to run BES or BIS. They proved the market and then got stuck in the Innovator's Dilemna. They became all about features that big customers wanted and needed. And so they missed the personal part of personal computing. Apple, as they did with the PC and then graphical user interfaces saw a successful technology and made people salivate over it. They saw how Windows had built a better sandbox for developers and built the best app delivery mechanism the world has seen to date. Google followed suit and managed to take a much larger piece of the market with more competitive pricing. There is so much we didn't discuss, like the short-lived Playbook tablet from BlackBerry. Or the Priv. Because for the most part, they a device management solution today. The founders are long gone, investing in the next wave of technology: Quantum Computing. The new face of BlackBerry is chasing device management, following adjacencies into security and dabbling in IoT for healthcare and finance. Big ticket types of buys that include red teaming to automotive management to XDR. Maybe their future is in the convergence of post-quantum security, or maybe we'll see their $5.5B market cap get tasty enough for one of those billionaires who really, really, really wants their chicklet keyboard back. Who knows but part of the fun of this is it's a living history.

This week on the Millionaire Car Salesman Podcast, Sean V. Bradley, CSP discusses “Desking a Deal.” In this discussion, Sean breaks down the pieces to desking a deal - qualifying the prospect properly, pencils and negotiations, and closing the deal. Joining Sean this week is Kevin Curtis, General Manager of McGrath City Hyundai located in Chicago, IL. Kevin and Sean discuss what “desking a deal” looks like at McGrath City Hyundai and what Kevin, as the GM, looks for in his team. One of the biggest challenges when presenting pencils to a prospect is figuring out the real objection(s). Is it the down payment, is it the monthly payment, is it the term?

WWE Raw Superstar Ezekiel (you know, Elias' younger brother) is on WrestleRant Radio this week talking to Graham "GSM" Matthews about facing Kevin Owens at Hell in a Cell and their recent rivalry, his Raw run so far, Elias' whereabouts and the rest of his family tree, what he wants to accomplish in WWE, if he's aware of the rumors that he's also related to LA Knight/Max Dupri, and more! RJ Marceau then joins GSM to give their two cents on NXT's In Your House event and Apollo Crews' return to the brand on Tuesday night before getting into their full review of WWE's Hell in a Cell pay-per-view which was highlighted by a tremendous Triple Threat for the Raw Women's Championship, The Judgement Day taking on the trio of AJ Styles, Finn Balor and Liv Morgan, and an excellent Hell in a Cell clash between a wounded Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. When will Rhodes return from injury and what does that mean for Rollins in the meantime? Will it involve the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship even though Roman Reigns reportedly won't be at Money in the Bank? GSM and RJ tackle those questions as well as if Liv Morgan is the best bet to win this year's women's Money in the Bank Ladder match, Rhea Ripley becoming the new number one contender to the Raw Women's Championship, Finn Balor replacing Edge as the leader of The Judgement Day and why it was a dumb idea, and John Cena returning to Raw later this month and who he could face at SummerSlam if he sticks around. Plus, hear their thoughts on the Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator Series and Wardlow's lame excuse for not taking part in it, if Jon Moxley is the right choice to win the interim title, the introduction of AEW's all-new All-Atlantic Championship and why it's not necessary, and MJF being persona non grata on Wednesday's Dynamite.

Firstly, Dr. Han explains her workup of patients with suspected interstitial cystitis (IC). Because an accurate diagnosis of IC is so rare, she sends out multiple questionnaires to her patients before their appointments and performs thorough physical exams. Upon physical examination, other conditions may appear to be more likely than IC, such as genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM), lichen sclerosus, vaginal atrophy, or vulvodynia. She always assesses the pelvic floor to look for hypertonicity and knots. Another common cause of bladder pain is overactive bladder (OAB) and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI), for which she can prove with a positive bacterial culture. Aside from the physical exam, she also gets a post-void residual urine test and a urinalysis. IC falls into two subtypes–IC with Hunner's lesions and IC without Hunner's lesions. The latter subtype is more common and is rarely seen in younger patients and patients with frequency symptoms. For this reason, Dr. Han does not regularly perform cystoscopies on young patients. Additionally, many patients with bladder pain will not be able to tolerate a cystoscopy procedure, so she relies on the physical exam and a health history to make a diagnosis. Treatment for bladder and pelvic pain is multimodal–many of her patients will work with physical therapists and pain management physicians for their chronic pain. Her first-line therapy for bladder pain is pelvic floor physical therapy, although the pain may get worse before it improves with therapy. She also recommends suppository vaginal Valium if needed, but thinks that more research should be done on suppository CBD. She does not prescribe opioids for pain management. If the patient has vulvodynia, hormone therapy with estrogen/testosterone creams is her chosen treatment. She notes that it is important to explain to patients that local application of estrogen does not increase their chance of developing breast cancer. Her second-line therapy includes amitriptyline, for anxiety-driven IC, and IC cocktails, which should only be continued if the patient's symptoms are improving. Her third-line therapy is repetitive hydrodistention, but she only performs this procedure in patients with Hunner's lesions. Additionally, Cyclosporin A should only be used exclusively in patients with Hunner's lesions. If the patient is experiencing concurrent pudendal pain, Stimwave pudendal neuromodulation is a possibility. Dr. Han uses clues, such as pain while sitting down, excessive standing, and pain relief when laying down to diagnose patients with pudendal pain. Her last resort to bladder pain is a cystectomy, or complete removal of the bladder. She notes that this method is not very effective, as patients may experience phantom pain. For this reason, she makes sure to explore all other options and thoroughly counsel her patients before performing this procedure. Finally, Dr. Silva and Dr. Han discuss the evidence-based correlation between bladder pain and sexual abuse. Dr. Han encourages urologists to create a safe space for their patients to share their experiences and get quality referrals to counselors.
In this episode, Dr Louise Newson speaks to Dr Abbie Laing about why she now specialises in menopause care and what she has learnt through her research and writing on the subject. Together the experts discuss clinical hot topics where misinformation and misunderstandings are rife such as what the evidence shows about the risk of clots and breast cancer with HRT, and treating symptoms of genitourinary syndrome of menopause (GSM) with vaginal estrogen. Abbie's 3 tips for women with symptoms of GSM: Seek help early and use vaginal estrogen; persist with treatment options if the first one doesn't suit you. The benefits are huge, and treatment should be long term. If you have recurrent UTIs, consider vaginal estrogen treatments . For elderly, frail, or very busy women, the vaginal estrogen ring (Estring) is a very effective and safe option. Vaginal estrogen treatments are very safe and do not have any associated risks, including for people who have had cancer.

All-new SmackDown Superstar Raquel Rodriguez joins Graham "GSM" Matthews to kick off this week's WrestleRant Radio to discuss being called up to the main roster and when she found out it was happening, who knew about it ahead of time, her journey over the last several years, eventually teaming with Rhea Ripley, having her name changed, and more! GSM and RJ Marceau then reflect back on the six-year anniversary of Samoa Joe winning the NXT Championship at an NXT house show they attended before getting into how Raw has been better lately (awful weddings notwithstanding), Theory winning the United States Championship and how far he can go, Randy Orton celebrating 20 years in WWE next month and what some of his best matches are, Rhea Ripley turning heel, Bianca Belair's upcoming opponents, and Cody Rhodes vs. Kevin Owens for the first time ever. They also have plenty of thoughts on Kushida leaving NXT and if more releases are soon to follow, the debut of Roxanne Perez on Tuesday's show, why Sammy Guevara turning heel was the right move and why him regaining the AEW TNT Championship was the wrong one, AEW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling announcing their first-ever joint show for June and what the main event could be, CM Punk vs. Adam Page being primed for the Double or Nothing main event, why WWE being interested in FTR is hardly surprising, Jack Evans' AEW contract not being renewed, and what's next for Darby Allin and Andrade El Idolo following their Coffin match main event.

Inspired by a question from a Patron, we give you an original list of wines that are true alternatives to Cabernet if you love the OG and you want to branch out. We come up with 7 solid ideas that are similar but different enough to make them interesting. The original idea for this list was from Patron Serl Z. and Leigh W. gets credit for naming this series. People were so excited for these new ideas, we may just make it into a series! We begin by discussing the main characteristics of Cabernet Sauvignon: Flavors: Black fruit –especially blackcurrant, black cherry, black plum, blackberry -- earth in Old World versions, fruit in New World versions. The wine occasionally shows mint, eucalyptus, thyme, or green pepper notes. With oak Cab smells and tastes like tobacco, pencil shavings, cigar box, leather Generally tannic with good acidity. Some can be age-worthy if they have good tannin structure and acidity (backbone) Flavors depend on terroir, winemaking, oak aging Alternatives: Mourvèdre/Monastrell/Mataro (Bandol in France, Monastrell from southern Spain, and GSM blends from the US and Australia) – dark fruit, intense flavor, long aging Douro Tinto/ Touriga Nacional (Portugal)– dusty tannins with sweet fruit, violets, leather, tobacco, big tannins Alentejo/Alentejano (Portugal) – for people who like juicy, fruity Cabs with soft tannins. These wines are a blend of Alfrocheiro, Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez, Castelão, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, and, not surprisingly, Cabernet Sauvignon Sagrantino di Montefalco (Umbria, Italy)-- Sagrantino grape is full bodied, tannic with earth, cherry, smoke and sometimes spicy notes that evolve into leather and tobacco with time. Similar to Cabernet, Sagrantino is astringent in youth and mellows with time Malbec (Cahors, France, Argentina) -- Not all Malbec is created equal. If you want wines that are similar to Cabernet, choose Cahors, which is earthier, heavier, stronger, more tannic and often more terroir-driven. For Argentina, look for wines from sub-regions of Mendoza with older vines and elevation. These areas make wines with stronger tannin, darker fruit, and more acidity. They aren't as plush as many Malbec. In the Luján de Cuyo valley of Mendozalook for Vistalba and Las Compuertas. In the Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, which includes Paraje Altamira and Petit Verdot (Virginia, Napa, and many other New World regions make varietal Petit Verdot, it's native home is Bordeaux, where it is part of the Bordeaux blend). Although known for what it brings to the Bordeaux blend, varietal Petit Verdot can be a great Cab alternative. The grapes are thick skinned, and the wines have black fruit, herbs, spice, and dark flower notes. The wine has high acidity and tannins, making it a great sub. Tannat (Madiran, Uruguay, Virginia, Texas, Paso Robles and Santa Cruz Mountains in California other parts of the US. Also Argentina, Brazil, Australia). John S. – this one's for you! Tannat is often blended with with Cabernet Sauvignon to tame its tannins! In Madiran the wine is far harsher than Cab but in Uruguay, it is more like blackberry, plum, dark raspberry, earth, and spice. It has soft tannins, high alcohol, and is pretty delicious. It resembles a lighter style Cabernet from the North Coast of Sonoma Cabernet Franc (on the list with lots of caveats so this is like a 7.5!). Cabernet Franc is the parent of Cabernet Sauvignon but it's much earthier, tea-like, and has a lot of red fruit notes. It is nowhere near as tannic as Cabernet and its flavors are really different. Still, it's not as soft as Merlot and because it can exhibit the herbs and pyrazine (green pepper) of Cabernet Sauvignon, I'm adding it to the list At the end of the show I mention some cheat regions – good places to get blends with a healthy hit of Cabernet in them: Bordeaux, South African Bordeaux Blends, Hawkes Bay from New Zealand are three I mention! Please let me know if you like this theme. If so, we'll do more shows like this! _____________________________________________________ Thanks to our sponsors this week: Our new sponsor: Wine Spies!

This week on the Millionaire Car Salesman Podcast, L.A. Williams dives into the ultimate success story. From the streets of Peru to top salesmen on the showroom floor, listen in as this week's guest discusses how to overcome hardships and create a better life for yourself. Joining L.A. this week is Ernesto Servan, the General Sales Manager of Garlyn Shelton Buick GMC based in Temple, TX. Ernesto has been in sales since he was six years old selling lollipops on the beaches of Peru. After his days selling lollipops, Ernesto moved to the United States, joined the military and began selling phones as a part time job. One day he met someone at the mall who was looking to get into the automotive business and asked Ernesto to go with him to the dealership. He has been in car sales since June 2001. His first month he sold 17 cars with minimal knowledge of the industry. His former finance manager and role model, Terry Cameron, trained the sales people that they should practice without customers so they would be better prepared in front of them. From that point on, Ernesto dedicated himself to training and learning to do more, be more and achieve more, as Sean V. Bradley would say. Ernesto held the title of top salesman of the month for approximately two to three years at his first dealership. That's when he transitioned from the sales floor to the internet team where he and the internet director averaged selling 50-60 cars a month. It wasn't long until opportunity came knocking again - this time as a management position. In his management career, Ernesto strives to train his team to be the best. He has implemented a number of practices that keep his team well trained and prepared for the sales floor including Automotive Profit Builders. One of the biggest mistakes a salesperson can make is getting too smart for the game. Make sure you cover the basics and don't skip any steps in the road to the sale. About Ernesto Serv
