This is a followup talk on applying the concepts introduced earlier this week in Episode 191, Time passing. Do you believe you have enough time to do the things that matter most in your writing life?
We start out discussing a game the Cleveland Guardians could have easily lost to the Detroit Tigers. Even with multiple times, they could have easily lost they ended up pulling out the close win. We discuss a game that was nearly lost but instead they were able to scavenge up a win. We talk about the game a little more as well as talking about Steven Kwan's chances at the rookie of the year. While most of the focus has always been on first and first alone, I explain why it might be best to root for him to finish third in the rookie of the year race if you are a Guardians fan. We talk about Peyton Battenfield who will be joining the Guardians in Toronto. I thought he would have made his debut already, but we get into what has gone wrong since the Guardians acquired him for Jordan Luplow. We also discuss why they decided to add him over one of the relievers in the minors. We also discuss the incoming addition of Cody Morris to the 40-man roster and why he should see his way on Cleveland's roster sooner rather than later. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

What You'll Hear In This Episode:How having a roadmap can help lead you to answer the age old question, “where are all the good men at?!”Most people are like teenagers when it comes to dating.Why being accomplished, attractive, and available isn't enough for finding love, based in respect and friendship. Lisa talks about how she gained the emotional maturity she needed in order to find the mature love she wanted.What is the cost of not having a roadmap to love? Why just learning information and watching YouTube videos on finding love isn't enough. When you have a roadmap, you aren't wasting your time going after men presenting red flags, or in relationships that are solely chemistry based.Finding the Guardian of Your Soul is going to feel very ordinary - and that's a good thing!Continue On Your JourneyLisa Shield | YouTube | Facebook | Instagram | Book a Call With LisaEmail the podcast at: email@example.comMentioned:Quotes:“Having a roadmap means having a step by step plan that puts all of the pieces of this puzzle together, the pieces you already have, and the pieces you have yet to learn. So you can stop wasting precious time and find true love now.” - Lisa “Finding the guardian of your soul, in some ways, is going to feel very ordinary.” - Lisa “Unless we learn other ways we'll just default back to the same things we did in junior high school.”- Benjamin“If you really know what to look for in a man, you can find many of them. But most people are not always valuing the right things, or looking for the right things.” - Lisa

This week on PodQuest we talk a bit about the Pokemon Presents from last week and our thoughts on the new Violet and Scarlet revealations, Droo tells us a bit about The Diofield Chronicle demo, and Chris started down the path of Xenoblade Chronicles 3. We also talk about EAs Sims patch follies from a couple weeks ago, and Walnut wrapped up his time with the Marvel's Guardian's of the Galaxy game. The post PodQuest 417 – Pokemon Presents, The Diofield Chronicle, and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 first appeared on One-Quest.com.
Nishanth Chopra is a young, innovative Indian entrepreneur who in 2016 founded a unique sustainable brand and collective called Oshadi (pronounced aw-sha-dhi, which means ‘essence of nature' or ‘healing plant' in Sanskrit - @oshadi_collective)In this interview with Anne Muhlethaler, Nishanth tells Anne about growing up in the textile town of Erode and how, after returning from university in the UK, he decided to carve a new path for himself by breaking with the expectations of his family and launch a small sustainable ready-to-wear brand. In his pursuit, Nishanth came to realise the depth of problems that were underlying the traditional fashion production model, even when trying to do it sustainably. He explains to Anne how, out of a desire to look after the earth after creating clothing, from printing and dyeing to weaving and spinning cotton, the collective started cultivating a new fashion system with a 50-acre regenerative cotton farm.Nishanth says that if he has any talent it's really just connecting the dots — right time, right place, right people — and that's how he was able, step by step, to launch this 'seed to sew concept'. And Oshadi doesn't just look after not just the soil or think of the finished product. Instead, Nishanth shares his vision with the farmers and artisans who collectively work on this project. He says his aim is that the complexity (of figuring out this new respectful way of working with the earth) should end with ‘us' — making it possible for anyone else in the future to replicate this radically transparent model. Nishanth also tells Anne how meaningful change can happen when there is collaboration through real respect for someone's work — something that's not always shown to Indian craftsmen and women from a Western point of view. A unique voice and gifted entrepreneur, who hopefully will leave you inspired.

The New Authoritarians and the Covid-19 pandemics role in transforming civilization Dr. Naomi Wolf is the CEO of the Daily Clout, a nonprofit that enables people to see, share and affect live legislative bills which otherwise would be largely non-transparent and passed in behind closed doors. She is perhaps best known as a feminist leader, journalist and author writing about women's rights, abortion, the Occupy Movement, the emerging totalitarianism in the US and more recently the Covid pandemic and creeping institutional tyranny. Her articles have appeared in The Nation, the Guardian and Huffington Post. Naomi recently released her eleventh book "The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, Covid-19 and the War Against the Human" which uveils the forces of Big Tech, Big Pharma and an oligarchic elite to use the Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to revision our civilization against the will and freedoms of the people. Naomi graduated from Yale University as a Rhodes Scholar to attend Oxford University where she later received her doctorate in English Language and Literature. In the past she has taught at Barnard College, Stoney Brook and George Washington University. She hosts a weekly program Daily Clout, which can be heard every Saturday at 1 pm on the Progressive Radio Network. Her website is DailyClout.io

At age 16, I founded a breast cancer charity in memory of my late mother - that sparked my passion for social impact, and making a dent in our universe. My campaign has since raised over $500,000 (including $48,000 in under an hour), and spread nationwide. In 2018, I joined insuretech Lemonade to lead Social Impact and ESG. I have distributed over $4M in donations to our 100 partners organizations and our impact has grown 4,232% higher. I was named one of the 100 women to watch by Barclays, and have written for the Telegraph, Guardian and Forbes.
The Last White Man, Mohsin Hamid's startling new novel, holds up a shattered mirror to readers, reflecting back a recognisable, but heightened and reconfigured version of our world.One morning Anders, a white man, wakes up to find that his skin is now dark — with no indication as to how this has happened, or why now, why to him. Anders must reckon with this metamorphosis, how it changes the way he looks at himself, how others look at him, and how he looks at others looking at him… The Last White Man somehow feels at once like an age-old story, and something strikingly new and causes readers to reflect upon the preconceptions and prejudices that structure our lives.*SUBSCRIBE NOW FOR BONUS EPISODESLooking for Friends of Shakespeare and Company read Ulysses? https://podfollow.com/sandcoulyssesIf you want to spend even more time at Shakespeare and Company, you can now subscribe for regular bonus episodes and early access to Friends of Shakespeare and Company read Ulysses.Subscribe on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/sandcoSubscribe on Apple Podcasts here: https://podcasts.apple.com/fr/podcast/shakespeare-and-company-writers-books-and-paris/id1040121937?l=enAll money raised goes to supporting “Friends of Shakespeare and Company” the bookshop's non-profit, created to fund our noncommercial activities—from the upstairs reading library, to the writers-in-residence program, to our charitable collaborations, and our free events.*Mohsin Hamid writes regularly for The New York Times, the Guardian and the New York Review of Books, and is the author of Exit West, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Moth Smoke, How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia and Discontent and its Civilizations.

How you think about time—such as if you have enough, not enough, or plenty of it—impacts what you create in your writing life. Many writers credit time as necessary for their skills, clients, or assignment quality to improve. An overemphasis on time passing to become a better freelancer isn't useful or accurate, and can be a disempowering framework. Time passing isn't the important factor in if I learn or complete something; often time passes and we don't learn or complete our writing. Ironically, the refrain of “I need more time to pitch” (or finish the current assignment or freewrite or work on a book or whatever it is) often creates a sense of frustration, scarcity, urgency, or fear. In turn, the writers spends less or no extra time. Because if you don't have enough time, why bother? If the requirement for effective pitching was more time, I'd be all for it. But it's simply not the missing ingredient. Time happens either way: if you write the pitch or not, time goes by. If you could only write a pitch effectively or efficiently, you'd almost certainly opt for a good slow pitch over a quick one that doesn't get assigned. Time isn't the missing element. Skill, clarify, confidence, practice, and prioritization are all more accurate assessments about what to focus on.

In this episode John Yargo speaks with Kim about Environmental Catastrophe. In the episode John quotes Hannah Arendt and N.K. Jemisin, discusses a Shakespeare play and a 17th century Peruvian painting, and optimistically suggests that environmental catastrophe will save us. He references the work of many scholars in the field of environmental humanities, including Geoffrey Parker and Dagomar Degroot on the Little Ice Age in Early Modern Europe, Gerard Passannante's work on Catastrophizing, and Gavin Bailey on the Andean Baroque. He also talks about Amitav Ghosh's recent work The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable (UChicago Press, 2016) and Rebecca Solnit's A Paradise Built in Hell (Penguin Random House, 2010). In the longer version of the conversation, John told Kim about how he teaches the literature of catastrophe in reverse, starting with the present and working backward, to upset teleological readings of cultural history. John Yargo is Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Boston College, having recently received his Ph.D. degree in English literature at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He researches literary representations of environmental catastrophe, the subject of his dissertation titled Saturnine Ecologies: Environmental Catastrophe in the Early Modern World, 1542-1688. He is also a host for the New Books in Literary Studies, where he discusses recent scholarship in early modern studies, ecocriticism, and critical race studies.

It was a very busy weekend for the Cleveland Guardians who split the four-game series with the Houston Astros despite not having one of their best starters set up to go. I was told all week this team could not compete with the Astros but in the end, they did. We talk about the brilliance of Emmanuel Clase. The utter dominance of Triston McKenzie. We also discussed Hunter Gaddis, the 13th Guardian to make their debut this year, and the pitcher I hoped would get the call on Friday. I explain why I think he is a future 10-year player in the majors. We quickly talk about the three games of the week before focusing on Sunday and the performances there. Triston McKenzie after his struggles in June has elevated into a legit front-line starter. Was I the only one that was sad that Steven Kwan got pinch hit and saw his streak end on Friday? We also talk about why Jake Jewell was added to the roster and why he is likely to have a very short stay on the 40-man. We end by first discussing where the standings have the Guardians both in the division and the Wild Card. The Guardians still have a better chance at the division than the Wild Card. Then of course we get into Franmil Reyes. We talk about what has occurred over the last three years which might have made the organization decide to move on from what this team needs: a power hitter from the right side with multiple years of control. This was not a result of just one bad year, this team loves to buy low on players so there is more going on. We try to explain why this shocker occurred, what it means, and why it was likely best for everyone. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

He had to find his path without guidance and validation from his father. Going alone allowed him to go through life without worrying about the world's opinions. Instead, he receives validation from his

Robin Hatch (musician) doesn't pick up the block from the man himself, but a tweet cheekily comparing her positive album review in the Guardian with a less-than-positive review of Kanye's album "Donda" in the same publication earns her a lot of unwanted attention from people who don't quite understand the joke, to the point where she even takes a phone call about it offline. This episode starts with some offline content too, as the Blocked Boys and Robin ponder stick families and Robin offers up yet another pronunciation of "decal" we bet you didn't see coming. From there, we get into Boston Pizza, Tim Hortons' weird "Dream" donuts, celebrity trading cards, the Trapt guy, and Robin gets into it with Selena Gomez's fanbase--which we learn are called "Selenators"--in an attempt to get blocked for the pod.

Is a computer actually like the human brain? And is God's wisdom as mysterious as an AI's black box? We host Wired columnist Meghan O'Gieblyn with fascinating conversation through sentience, suffering, God's sovereignty—and of course, AI robotic dogs. Meghan O'Gieblyn is the author of God Human Animal Machine: Technology, Metaphor, and the Search for Meaning. Her previous essay collection Interior States, won the Believer Book Award for nonfiction. She writes essays and criticism for Harper's Magazine, The New Yorker, The Guardian, The New York Times, and Bookforum. Her writing has received three Pushcart Prizes, was nominated for a National Magazine Award, and has appeared in The Best American Essays and The Contemporary American Essay anthologies. And she writes a monthly advice column for our perennial favorite WIRED magazine. Big Questions How is it possible that humans can become attached to these artificial intelligence pets? What is the “hard problem of consciousness” in philosophy? How has the language of computers affected how we think about our own mind? Will artificial intelligence affect the way we think about God? Suffering? A note on faith Meghan openly talks on this episode that she no longer considers herself a Christian—despite growing up as an evangelical and a degree in Christian theology. She incorporates her personal story of belief and doubt into her recent book. While of course at Device & Virtue we produce our podcast from our own Christian worldview & faith, we felt like we had much to consider from her thoughts and were thankful she agreed to come on the show knowing we were a podcast of faith. Books & Links Chris mentions author Ted Chiang's science fiction story “The Lifecycle of Software Objects” about artificially intelligent pets Adam and Meghan discuss LaMDA—an AI chatbot by Google trained on conversation. In June 2022, news was made when a Google employee named Blake Lemoine claimed that the chatbot was sentient, a claim rejected by experts.

Human beings start their days with water. A warm shower. Brushing teeth. Washing faces. The more than two million Americans who live without running water, however, aren't afforded this luxury. More than 25 million Americans don't drink water that meets federal health standards according to a study conducted by The Guardian. Native American households are 19 times more likely to lack indoor plumbing than white households. We hear from one of the people trying to address the problem. We start the conversation in Navajo Nation where one in three homes don't have running water.Want to support 1A? Give to your local public radio station and subscribe to this podcast. Have questions?

Susan Straight, author of the novel, Mecca, which Michael Connelly called "a masterpiece," talks with Barbara DeMarco-Barrett about her new novel and how it came to be. Susan Straight was born in Riverside, CA, and still lives there with her family. She's passionate about home, California, the Santa Ana River, the foothills and the deserts, and has been writing about southern California and the inland area for forty years. From her kitchen window, she can see the hospital where she was born, which her three daughters find kind of hilarious and pathetic; most days, she walks her dog Angel beside the Santa Ana River as she has since childhood, and then past the classrooms at Riverside City College, where she wrote her first short story, at 16, which is also kind of hilarious, but hopeful. She has written about the people of California for her new memoir, In the Country of Women, based on women's stories told for five generations to Straight and her daughters, in driveways and trucks, at parks and funerals. She's published that memoir, eight novels, and two books for children. Her short stories and essays have been published everywhere from The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian to Alta, The Believer, McSweeneys, Zoetrope, Reader's Digest, Real Simple, and Family Circle. She's been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lannan Prize for Fiction, a California Gold Medal for Fiction, and the Kirsch Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes.

Hello! In the second of our summer episodes we're talking to environmental activist, author and journalist George Monbiot. Farming is the most environmentally damaging industry in the whole world, and great swathes of the Earth's surface are given over to the production of our food, particularly through grazing and feeding livestock. In his new book Regenesis: Feeding the world without devouring our planet George explores how we can develop healthier, cheaper and less damaging versions of familiar and accepted foods through the 'counter-agricultural revolution.' What is the secret to delivering radical change? And why might a pancake hold the solution to our problems?Buy Regenesis hereRead George's columns for the Guardian here See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
In this episode, Jeannette talks to Mark Homer who is the co-founder of Progressive Property, Progressive Success, and several other ventures. Mark explains how being raised in different countries and attending boarding school positively shaped his life. They discuss how he ended up buying and selling 1,000 houses and converting 600,000 square feet of space into residential properties. He explains why he is planning to put solar panels on most of the homes his 360 tenants live in. As well as talking about the current financial climate, inflation, wage demands, rising power prices, crypto and interest rates. KEY TAKEAWAYS Travelling builds emotional intelligence. It teaches you that there is more than one “right way” to tackle things Who you mix with from an early age has a significant impact on what you learn and your outlook on life. Power bills are set to soar, so now is a good time to install solar. You need a mixture of cash, equity, and property to insulate yourself during tough economic times. Exercise, having a clean bedtime routine and being self-aware all help you to sleep well. Working with a business partner who is different from you brings benefits. Mark explains how to maximise them. As interest rates rise, demand and growth will fall. Financial unrest always results in opportunities. With a property business, it is important to focus on cash flow. If you can't pay your mortgage you are going to lose your property. BEST MOMENTS ‘You need to go and see the rest of the world. It provides you with tools to use for business and relationships. ´ ‘If you can navigate the bad times, the good times usually look after themselves.' ‘Focus on making sure that income streams and the yield are really, really strong.' This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

Mark has developed in excess of 600,000 square foot of mainly pubs, offices and retail into mixed and residential uses – many of which were built in house by Progressive. Mark has sourced and developed in excess of 1,000 property units since 2003 and has held an equity share in portfolios he has developed within properties valued at over £80M. His personal property portfolio holds in excess of 360 residential and commercial tenancies with a property value in excess of £37 Million making him the largest Private Residential Landlord in the Peterborough area. Mark is also Co-Founder of Progressive Lets which manages around 1,100 tenants which represents over 4% of Peterborough's private rented properties. He has commented and been referenced in many major publications including Independent, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, BBC News, Sun, Metro, Guardian, Daily Mail, ITV, BBC Radio as well as authoring more than 7 books on Property and Business, some of which are internationally published and have reached best seller status. Mark also has a podcast called “Mark my Words”. Mark is a Helicopter pilot, has run 2 Marathons, loves skiing, shooting, Business, Finance, Politics and Economics. Mark broke the Guinness world record for the longest team speech marathon in 2015. Mark quit corporate life in 2005 where he saw a long road to quiet desperation, giving up a ‘good job' that was actually dead end and monotonous. Mark has been an entrepreneur investor since the age of 15, setting up many small businesses through University, and continually saving, re-investing and compounding the money using laws of wealth that he now teaches to 10,000s of people. Often behind the scenes and reclusive, Mark just likes to buy property. He'd love to keep investing for another 50 years, doesn't really like spending money and has a great eye for cost control. It is possibly the unique partnership of Rob and Mark that has scaled and sustained Progressive when others have come, gone and struggled. Two very different people but with a great friendship, both best-men at each others' weddings, and similar vision for educated property investment for freedom, choice and profit. Since stepping back from training due to schedules, scale and demands on his time Mark has successfully trained many Progressive students to become trainers for Progressive.
