This week evidence was presented by former London Fire Brigade Commissioner Dany Cotton, who previously told the Inquiry that the LFB could not have prepared for a fire like Grenfell Tower. This time, she conceded that in the years leading up to the fire, the LFB failed to take on board national guidance that warned how combustible cladding could lead to rapid fire spread, as it did at Grenfell. Evidence was also provided by another former LFB Commissioner, Ron Dobson. We heard how LFB Incident Commander training fell short of commitments they made in light of the 2009 Lakanal House fire. David Brown, former LFB Director of Operations, continued his evidence from last week covering the training of Control Room staff.

Have you ever had a big life-learning moment and then decided you "never want to show up that way again?" Perhaps, you saw your ego/controller self in a situation and noticed you were not interested in living that way any longer. While these insights can be life-changing, they can also create a fear of falling back into old patterns. Thus, in an attempt to honor our learnings, we unconsciously place rules for ourselves that manifest as stuckness, confusion, and distrust of ourselves in the moment. While the rule may have come from a genuine insight and understanding, it is not necessarily the authentic choice for every moment. In this week's episode, we explore the subtle difference between living from fear and control versus living from space and freedom. Until love is satisfied by Caroline Corcoran | Awakening by Jimmy Stofer

You may have heard Byron Katie talk about the three types of business: your business, my business, and God's business. This week's episode dives deeply into this notion and asks whether anything at all is actually "your business." In other words, do you make any of your thoughts, feelings, decisions, or experiences happen? Notice the response that arises within you: Whether you embrace or reject this question, did you will that response to happen or did it just appear? As you explore and unravel the fears, beliefs, and conclusions you're holding onto around control, you may just get in touch with how all business is ultimately God's business. That is, as Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it, how “our painful labors are unnecessary” and that “only in our easy, simple, spontaneous action are we strong.” Tom would call this having a “yes” to life.Until love is satisfied by Caroline Corcoran | Awakening by Jimmy Stofer

The Brainy Business | Understanding the Psychology of Why People Buy | Behavioral Economics

It's November – a month where many begin to reflect on the year and (at least here in the states) consider the things we are thankful for. It kicks off the holiday season and we may begin to think about those around us whom we may see in person or virtually this holiday. Because of that, it seemed like the perfect time to discuss The Power of Us, a new book from coauthors Dr. Jay Van Bavel and Dr. Dominic Packer.  Today, Dr. Dominic Packer is here to talk about this fantastic book and their years of research together. The insights in the book come together to help people harness their shared identities to improve performance, increase cooperation and promote social harmony. I'm guessing you can see why I chose to have this episode come out now, even though it is a couple of months after we recorded and when the book was officially released. It just seemed like the perfect time to share and help everyone to reflect upon the power of “us.” Listen to the episode now to see how this can be leveraged in your life and business... Show Notes: [00:07] In today's episode I'm excited to introduce you to Dr. Dominic Packer, coauthor of The Power of Us. [03:10] Dominic shares about himself and his background. He is a social psychologist and professor.  [06:01] The book is about group identities. The groups we belong to can become part of who we are.  [06:56] When we take on a group identity, we are very likely to be influenced by the norms of that group.  [07:59] There is a second kind of influence which is informational influence. We look to other people to see what is a sensible thing to do. The norms through those groups become a way we express those identities.  [09:36] Dominic shares about the 20 statements task.  [11:22] For many of us, some really key aspects of ourselves come from these groups. They drive a lot of the way we think of the world, the emotions we feel, and the decisions we end up making.  [13:02] During the course of a single day different aspects of a single person's identity will come in and out of focus. Our behaviors are not exactly the same at different parts of the day when we operate through these different identities. [14:52] One of the fascinating things about identity is that it is flexible, malleable, and adaptive to current circumstances.  [17:08] Group-based divisions might arise by politics, fights over resources, or major political differences.  [18:26] Groups are a tremendously useful tool for human beings. They are fundamental to our survival. Humans have succeeded by getting together.  [21:35] In many corporate situations you have different divisions and units and people confirm identities at that subgroup level. People can get a lot of sense of connection and be very motivated to do well on behalf of their subgroup.  [22:25] Identities are often multi-leveled. If you shift their focus from their lower-level identity to their higher level and especially if you create conditions where they need to work together it can bring them together.  [23:50] You need to create the conditions by which people can see themselves as part of something larger than their immediate sub-group. People need to see that there is an organizational identity.  [25:11] We need to incentivize collective identity instead of individual identities. Setting universal goals can also help.  [28:07] “Dissent is quite hard and people only do it because they care deeply about a group.”  [29:59] Both the people who are the most likely to conform to group norms most of the time are also the most likely to dissent when they see something as problematic or needing change in their group. This is because they care a lot.  [30:50] To speak out is to take a risk and to take that risk is that you need to have some level of identification and care about the group. [32:24] You do want a culture where the people that are strongly identified with the group do feel like they can speak up when they see something as problematic or see something that has the possibility of change or improvement.  [32:53] A psychologically safe environment is one where people feel comfortable speaking up and speaking out, being critical, and being divergent. They feel comfortable because they know it will be okay.  [34:03] You want an organization where your people are identified and they really value the collective goals but they are engaging with them creatively.  [35:24] If you are trying to cultivate a group where people can share their ideas and can have better ideas than you, it is really important that you don't squash them even when they are not good ideas.  [36:49] As a boss, take time to reflect on what you are good at. Validating yourself and the contributions you make to free you up to be less threatened with other people bring good things to the table as well.  [38:27] A fundamental task of a leader is to manage the social identities of the people they are leading. [39:37] As a boss you have to be careful to not engage in behaviors that differentiate you too much from the group because then you no longer seem like one of us and you are not going to be followed as energetically or enthusiastically.  [41:24] Consider how to manage this group's identity so people understand what we are collectively trying to achieve and create a level of solidarity.  [42:39] As you rise up in leadership positions it does oftentimes require a total shift in orientation.  [45:23] Melina shares her closing thoughts.  [46:02] Dissenters care so much that they are unwilling to let the little things slide that they think are reflecting badly on the whole group. They care so much that they will stand up against the herd and encourage change.

As Tom likes to say, this is both a quality of love and of who we are without a story: We effortlessly allow all things to be as they are, even our perceptions of ourselves or the “I” we believed ourselves to be. Join us for a short, sweet, and poignant meditation that invites us to merge our experience of who we really are with the nature of reality.

Have you ever considered that desire, lack, and fear might go together? For example, you believe something's missing from your life - like a romantic relationship - and then you desire to fill that gap. Or, you desire to be with a partner and simultaneously fear rejection. Many of us have bought into the idea that the formula for bringing something into our experience is to identify lack and to desire what is evidently missing. But if lack and fear bookend desire, wouldn't you rather choose a more effortless and natural way to live? Rather than playing the desire, fear, and lack game, what if you let people and relationships come and go as they may? Who would you be in this moment if you were completely free of desire?Until love is satisfied by Caroline Corcoran | Awakening by Jimmy Stofer

The 11-day corruption inquiry into Gladys Berejiklian has come to an end after the former premier faced two days of grilling over her relationship with disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire. Throughout the course of the hearings, intimate details of the pair's relationship were exposed through questioning from the Independent Commission Against Corruption's counsel assisting, Scott Robertson. The commission heard Berejiklian considered Maguire part of her “love circle” but didn't consider the relationship significant enough to declare as a potential conflict of interest.

Open up to the possibility that there is no one in the entire universe who is dependent on you for their happiness, joy, or wholeness. Does this trigger fear and discomfort or come as a welcomed relief? In this week's episode, Tom helps us navigate the push and pull that comes with wanting to be needed by others - we love the importance it brings until we are the reason for someone else's pain and suffering. When we open up to the possibility that everyone is responsible for their own experience, we come to realize that we may not be as significant as we were conditioned to believe. Could it be that, in reality, no one needs us, we don't need anyone either, and that that is a good thing? As an experiment, you're invited to live today as if it's true.

In this archive episode, Dennis talks about how there are other ways of finding criminal vehicles but also talks about legality. Recorded on 06/13/2018. State v Mandel 2018 - https://law.justia.com/cases/new-jersey/appellate-division-published/2018/a5442-16.html?fbclid=IwAR0Frv8zieD8fO0JQ55mTuHCHKyMjHMRkCsIlzadEF6uCmNqHQosxsHxWIg (https://law.justia.com/.../appellate.../2018/a5442-16.html) Defendant appeals the denial of his motion to suppress the warrantless seizure of a small amount of marijuana from his vehicle. A police officer seized the marijuana after stopping defendant's vehicle for an equipment violation. During the stop, the officer smelled the odor of marijuana coming from inside the car while questioning defendant through the open passenger side window.The State contends the officer's slight intrusion inside the vehicle's window, for the sole purpose of better hearing defendant over the noise of passing traffic, did not constitute a search. Defendant argues it was a search, and that it was unlawful because the officer was not legally in the "smelling area" when he detected the odor of marijuana and developed the probable cause to seize it. Assuming without deciding that the officer conducted a search when he leaned his head inside defendant's open window, the panel concludes that the officer's slight, momentary intrusion inside the car window to hear defendant's responses was reasonable. Consequently, the search did not violate the Constitutional protection against "unreasonable searches and seizures." The marijuana was then properly seized pursuant to the "plain smell" exception to the warrant requirement. The trial court order denying the suppression motion is affirmed. State in the interest of J.A. (2018) Neither exigency nor the hot pursuit doctrine justified the officers' warrantless entry here. However, defendant's brother's actions did not constitute state action and were sufficiently attenuated from the unlawful police conduct to preclude application of the exclusionary rule to the evidence. https://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/attorneys/assets/opinions/supreme/a_38_16.pdf?fbclid=IwAR08RGXB4NENZ79saMFrbDx2hA7veCAURMdnW-_vZHk9uFX3CC_QTndVWZg (https://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/.../supreme/a_38_16.pdf)

Back on episode 111, I was joined by Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, CEO of Disaster Avoidance Experts discussing his book “Never Go With Your Gut.” When Gleb reached out to let me know that he has a new book on helping companies think through and prepare for returning to the office, including the cognitive biases that can impact this decision-making process for people in business, I knew I had to have him back for another conversation. This specific topic is incredibly relevant right now, but there is also an incredible amount of insight Gleb provides about leadership's collective cognitive biases that absolutely relate to other big strategic decisions as well. As you'll hear in the conversation today, beyond his background knowledge of behavioral science and those concepts, Gleb interviewed and has done work with more than a dozen companies and helped them with their plans to return to the office. His insights can help you to learn from their mistakes and best practices as you work on your own plan. Whether you are looking to keep a fully remote workforce, have everyone back in the office, a hybrid approach, or if you aren't sure yet, this episode is for you.  Show Notes: [00:07] In today's episode I'm delighted to have Dr. Gleb Tsipursky back with us to share about how to avoid disasters when returning to the office. [01:45] His insights can help you to learn from their mistakes and best practices as you work on your own plan. [03:40] Gleb shares about himself and his background. His background is in decision-making and risk management.  [06:02] Most recently he has been helping companies return to the office most effectively and prepare for the future of work.  [08:37] People are your main source of competitive advantage. What do your current people want? What do your potential hires want? [10:34] If your people are your main source of competitive advantage, wouldn't you think you would want to know what kind of things they want to do in returning to the office? It is their future after all.  [11:12] The surveys tell us that the future is very much hybrid: 85% of people in various surveys want a hybrid or full-time remote option.  [14:13] People report higher productivity as well as much higher happiness and well-being when they are working from home.  [16:08] There are a lot of advantages to having substantial remote work and disadvantages to forcing people back into the office.  [17:28] Your primary consideration should be your people. Then you can look at how many usages you are having of your location.  [20:14] Once you decide on occupancy, you can get rid of some of your unused space.  [21:25] You need to transform much of your existing space into a collaborative space.  [22:52] Status quo bias is one of the biggest problems here. The status quo bias refers to the fact that we prefer things to remain stable, as they were, and the right way.  [24:20] Never go with your gut (learn more about this in Gleb's book of the same name, link below).  [26:21] Another related bias to this problem is anchoring. We tend to be anchored to the initial information that we have.  [28:08] Confirmation bias is one of the biggest problems that we have in terms of the information we gather.   [30:50] You want to make sure to plan for the possibilities of other variants down the road.  [32:26] You want to strategically adapt to the virtual format.  [35:38] Two dynamics for creating serendipitous conversions in virtual settings are innovation and collaboration.  [37:40] Companies need to have a channel for serendipitous idea generation for each team. Then other people see the comment and then they comment back and then that transforms into a really great conversation that you can take into brainstorming.  [39:48] Traditional brainstorming has a number of advantages and some problems.  [41:31] It helps to have virtual brainstorming instead. Virtual brainstorming involves people separately typing into a digital spreadsheet anonymously.  [43:30] This has been shown to greatly improve the number and quality of ideas generated.  [44:51] How can we make this something amazing versus something we are stuck with?  [46:42] When you are able to look at the opportunity, you are able to beat out your competitors.  [47:58] We can actually successfully work remotely. It is a fundamental transition in how we think and approach the world.  [49:18] You need to adopt best practices for hybrid and remote settings.  [50:52] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [53:50] The important thing to keep in mind, much like Gleb's advice for recreating serendipitous moments online or doing virtual brainstorming, is that you can't allow yourself to be stuck by the constraints of how the benefit was generated before. [55:41] Melina's award-winning first book, What Your Customer Wants and Can't Tell You is available on Amazon, Bookshop, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository, and Booktopia.  Thanks for listening.

This Expedient may be attended with some inconveniences and some disadvantages, but yet I trust in its consequences will have the most happy effects. Necessity not only authorizes but seems to require the measure, for should the disorder infect the Army in the natural way and rage with its usual virulence we should have more to dread from it than from the Sword of the Enemy. Under these circumstances I have directed Doctr Bond to prepare immediately for inoculating in this Quarter,1 keeping the matter as secret as possible, and request that you will without delay inoculate All the Continental Troops that are in philadelphia and those that shall come in as fast as they arrive."*             CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow 7/8  The Indispensables: The Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delaware, by Patrick K. O'Donnell  From the bestselling author of Washington's Immortals and The Unknowns, an important new chronicle of the American Revolution heralding the heroism of the men from Marblehead, Massachusetts On the stormy night of August 29, 1776, the Continental Army faced capture or annihilation after losing the Battle of Brooklyn. The British had trapped George Washington's forces against the East River, and the fate of the Revolution rested upon the shoulders of the soldier-mariners from Marblehead, Massachusetts. Serving side by side in one of the country's first diverse units, they pulled off an “American Dunkirk” and saved the army by transporting it across the treacherous waters of the river to Manhattan. In the annals of the American Revolution, no group played a more consequential role than the Marbleheaders. At the right time in the right place, they repeatedly altered the course of events, and their story shines new light on our understanding of the Revolution. As the acclaimed historian Patrick K. O'Donnell dramatically recounts, beginning nearly a decade before the war started, and in the midst of a raging virus that divided the town politically, Marbleheaders such as Elbridge Gerry and Azor Orne spearheaded the break with Britain and shaped the nascent United States by playing a crucial role governing, building alliances, seizing British ships, forging critical supply lines, and establishing the origins of the US Navy. The Marblehead Regiment, led by John Glover, became truly indispensable. Marbleheaders battled at Lexington and on Bunker Hill and formed the elite Guard that protected George Washington. Then, at the most crucial time in the war, the special operations–like regiment, against all odds, conveyed 2,400 of Washington's men across the ice-filled Delaware River on Christmas night 1776, delivering a momentum-shifting surprise attack on Trenton. Later, the Marblehead doctor Nathaniel Bond inoculated the Continental Army against a deadly virus, which changed the course of history. White, Black, Hispanic, and Native American, this uniquely diverse group of soldiers set an inclusive standard of unity the US Army would not reach again for more than 170 years. The Marbleheaders' chronicle, never fully told before now, makes The Indispensables a vital addition to the literature of the American Revolution. ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  ..  *  The Marblehead doctor Nathaniel Bond had a problem. During the Battle of Lexington and Concord, in obedience to his Hippocratic Oath, he had treated British soldiers. For performing his duty as a doctor, he was falsely accused of being a Loyalist and had his life threatened by an angry mob.     "Doctor Nathaniel Bond, of Marblehead, having been charged before this Committee with having acted an unfriendly part to this Colony, the said Committee appointed Joseph Warren, Esq., Colonel Thos. Gardner, and Lieut. Colonel Joseph Palmer, as a Court of Inquiry, to examine witnesses in the case, and hear and determine the same; and upon full enquiry into the case, they are clearly of the opinion that said Bond's general behaviour has been friendly to American liberty; and though he may have discovered an imprudent degree of warmth in some instances, yet we do not find any proof of an inimical temper or disposition to this Country, and therefore recommend him to the esteem and friendship of his Country, that (as the errour which occasioned his being brought before this Committee appears to have been altogether involuntary, and was such as several of our most firm friends were led into, by false rumours spread, of the transactions of the nineteenth instant) no impressions to the Doctor's disadvantage may remain on the minds of any person whatsoever.             [signed] Joseph Warren, Chairman.”  April 26, 1775. .
