In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman discuss the injustice of the imprisonment of Steven Donziger and the protection of wealthy interests over people under capitalism, how the brutality and inhumanity of the courts and the police are integral to the maintenance of capitalism, and how the capitalist state exercises its power to threaten those that challenge it with political imprisonment.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Chris Smalls, President of the Amazon Labor Union, founder of The Congress Of Essential Workers, and host of the podcast “It's a Smalls World,” to discuss an impending union vote among the Staten Island Amazon warehouse workers, the gap between the conditions that workers experience and Jeff Bezos' obscene wealth, Amazon's efforts to repress the union drive, and this struggle's place in the broader context of striketober.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Adrienne Pine, retired Associate Professor of Anthropology at American University and co-editor of the upcoming book Asylum for Sale: Profit and Protest in the Migration Industry to discuss upcoming elections in Honduras and the historical context of the 2009 coup driving conditions in the country, the influence of the narco-state and drug money on the election, the electoral repression and red-baiting tactics the ruling party is using against the opposition, and the US government's targeting of Honduras as a strategic military point for imperialism in Latin America. Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Rachel Hu, co-host of the podcast It's Not You, It's Capitalism to discuss a recent uptick in school violence and how the instability in society caused by the capitalist system has contributed to violence, the community programs that have sprung up in response to this violence and how they demonstrate the true purpose of police and school resource officers, the documented rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and the Biden administration's misdirected efforts to counteract these hate crimes by providing more funding to the police, attempts to scapegoat Black people for the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and the need for solidarity, and Andrew Yang's ridiculous new political party.

Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo has emerged as a forceful expert voice making sense of the complex and times confusing, shifting shoals of the pandemic. ”All of us have had to step into this sphere,” filling “a power vacuum.” It has however been chaotic. Public communication is essential “to move the needle” but the experience can be “tough.” Vocal experts are the subject of attacks, the worst during the Black Lives Matter protests. The field of public health needs to invest more in how to message on vaccines. People are "swimming in disinformation.” Though she is “cautiously optimistic” for the United States, “no one is going to run out the clock on this virus.” For poor countries, which increasingly are in desperation abandoning a response, the future is “bleak.” Are we numb to the more than 700,000 dead Americans? Perhaps. It's impossible to wrap our minds around this scale of death in America. There is a need for a “national reckoning” through a commission, “a true opening of the books that goes deep.” Have we entered a new era of high-level diplomacy? “No.” “We don't have a Covid control strategy” at home or abroad. The lack of strategy is causing people to disengage. Can we be optimistic? “It can feel like there's an unraveling” but that in fact is not happening.  A “civic spirit” among citizens is buoying America. Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo is a Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She is also a Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations.

On October 7, Andrew and Steve sat down with a close friend, Georgetown's Prof. Larry Gostin, for a lively live-cast conversation about his new book, ‘Global Health Security: A Blueprint for the Future.” The podcast captures that rich, vivid exchange. The big messages: We underestimate the power of the SAR-CoV-2 virus: it is wily and pernicious and will continue to surge. We cannot forget anti-microbial resistance. A fundamental shift is needed in the US international approach – away from charity and towards advancing technology transfer to manufacture vaccines in low and middle-income countries to create resilience. That requires far greater pressure upon Moderna and Pfizer to cooperate in meeting urgent global needs. The USG has the legal authorities to make that happen but has not yet followed through. USG health communications have been “pitiful” and left the public “utterly confused.” That too can be corrected.   Professor Lawrence O. Gostin is University Professor at Georgetown University where he directs the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law.

Camila Campton, the Swan Force lead at Swan Bitcoin, joins us to discuss what makes all of us willing to talk about Bitcoin 24/7. A self-described newbie with a willingness to learn, Camila is crushing it with Swan, who first approached her to work on their social media but is now also presenting the Bitcoin En Espanol show with Javier Bastardo @criptobastardo from Venezuela. She sees herself as an educator and describes how Bitcoin makes you more selfless and loves building a toolbox of resources to help people learn. She first started learning about Bitcoin with her husband following the March 2020 market correction by listening to podcasts by Citizen Bitcoin, Stephan Livera, Matt Odell and Marty Bent. She describes it as a guilt-free addiction (and now job) that gives you hope, compared to a pessimistic outlook on life outside of Bitcoin. She sees it as important to speak to friends, family and Swan users about Bitcoin at a level they can understand, using all social channels and connecting on a human level to help them get off zero and start accumulating Satoshis. But also, the importance of establishing yourself as the Bitcoin person in your community, and letting people come to you when they are ready. We discussed how Bitcoin is viewed in Latin America (particularly Colombia) and how people still have more faith in the USD as a savings vehicle, and that both Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces have thriving Spanish speaking Bitcoin communities. Camila tells us her thoughts and experience of being a woman in Bitcoin. The only pushback was whether she was in Bitcoin for clout and attention, but she has proven her intentions through her work: “If you're comfortable with your intent, keep doing you.” She feels she's always had a lower time preference than her peers, but Bitcoin has allowed her to flex her savings muscle and find her people. Finally, we talk about bitcoiners being the toughest critics of Bitcoin, and how people who work for Bitcoin will have their time and effort respected. All Swan staff work from home, and although they could form a basketball team, none of us will ever be on it! All Camila's social accounts are @camilacampton Do yourself a favour.

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal's walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet's journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way. As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She's a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she's befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium… The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she'll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October. A Day at the Beach by Emilienne Malfatto takes place after the long journey through Europe. A young Syrian girl waits, exhausted, on the beach at Calais for the boat that she hopes will take her across the water to safety. Amal has nothing left to her except her memories of home, when she had parents, a family, a roof over her head, food on her plate and the ordinary worries of a small girl. Emilienne Malfatto is a photojournalist, working between Iraq, France and Latin America. She won this year's Prix Goncourt first novel prize for her novel ‘Que sur toi se lamente le Tigre'.

Caterine Castillo, Neivor: Streamlining real estate administration in Latin America, Ep 153   In Latin America, a building manager typically has to handle thousands of apartment units and tenants. This means simultaneously dealing with building maintenance, reconciling payments, and meeting tenant and landlord requests. Currently, this is done manually with pen and paper, maybe an Excel spreadsheet or through WhatsApp which leads to inefficiencies and unhappy residents.    Caterine Castillo, Neivor's co-founder and CEO, is trying to make living in Latin America's apartment buildings and condos better. Neivor is a vertical SaaS platform that simplifies condo fee collections and streamlines management and communication between residents, property owners, and building managers. Neivor processes tens of millions of payments per month and help manage 3000+ apartment buildings in Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador.   I sat down with Caterine to talk about the pain points of property management in Latin America and the differences in Neivor's reception between the Colombian and Mexican markets. We also talk about her experience in finance before becoming a founder and what it was like fundraising for the first time. Growing Neivor's team   One of the biggest lessons Caterine learned from working at corporations was managing large teams. These skills are extremely critical in Neivor's roadmap with a team that is currently growing from 18 employees to 75 in under a year. Caterine also explained that hiring won't solve a company's problems immediately. It's important to understand that people are managing a big learning curve when they join a new team.    Listen to this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about Caterine's main takeaways from her experience working in corporations.  The importance of connections in VC Caterine's first fundraising experience was with Neivor. She explains that having a great solution and an underserved market with low-hanging fruit sometimes isn't enough. Having the right connections is key. She had connections in the corporate world, but not in the VC world. Besides funding, Caterine considers that those first warm introductions are game-changers for any entrepreneur that is new to the space.   Learn more about Caterine's fundraising journey with Neivor and the connections that were key to their growth in this episode of Crossing Borders. Property management: Colombia versus Mexico Expanding to a new market in another country involves a lot of risks. Consulting with others who have done it before can be really helpful. However, there's so much more insight that can be gained from being on the ground and talking to clients before making a decision to expand. During her time in Mexico, Caterine discovered that their target market was much more receptive to Neivor's product, requiring a different marketing approach than in Colombia.   Check out this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about the differences between the Colombian and Mexican property management markets.    Caterine Castillo brings her expertise in business development, sales, marketing to propel Neivor's solution forward in Latin America. Her innate passion for team building and creating solutions that disrupt the market will be key to Neivor's success.    Outline of this episode: [2:34] - About Neivor [5:20] - Dealing with fraud [6:35] - Where Neivor operates [7:02] - Becoming an entrepreneur [8:20] - From fintech to founder [9:14] - Biggest lessons learned in fintech [10:24] - Growing Neivor's team  [13:40] - Fundraising process [15:30] - Jumping to Mexico [18:00] - How to sell in Mexico [20:27] - Books, blogs, and podcast recommendations [21:20] - Caterine's advice to her younger self [22:09] - What's next for Neivor?    Resources & people mentioned: Caterine Castillo Neivor Books: The Hard Thing About Hard Things, Lean In

Crucifixion and sexual abuse

Introduction "The Bible is always read with a context in mind. Assumptions are made about the original social context of the text and these are most often derived—consciously or otherwise— from the current social context of the reader or critic. In recent decades the positive value of recognizing these connections has been advocated by contextual theologies in Latin America and elsewhere. Although some critics have rightly cautioned against temptations to superficially equate contemporary social contexts and the biblical world, those committed to a contextual approach have maintained that, when used appropriately, a serious engagement with current social contexts can offer insights into the biblical context and hence into neglected aspects of the biblical text. One area where I believe that shared similarities between past and present contexts can be most usefully investigated is the political arena of state terror and the use of torture for this end. Latin American military regimes used terror in the 1970s and 1980s to create fear and promote fatalism throughout the whole of society. An understanding of this provides a context to recognize Roman crucifixions as instruments of state terror. Furthermore, Latin American torture practices involved deliberate attempts to shame the victims and undermine their sense of dignity. Physical torture and assaults were often coupled with psychological humiliation in attempts to end the victim's will to resist, or even to live. Sexual assaults and sexual humiliation are a particularly effective way to do this, and are commonplace in torture practices past and present. This article argues that torture practices can offer a deeper understanding of Roman crucifixion as a form of state terror which included sexual abuse. The analysis below draws on Latin American reports, but a similar reading could be offered through attention to torture in many other contexts, including torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib. To raise the question of sexual abuse in relation to Jesus may at first seem inappropriate. However, the Gospel accounts indicate a striking level of public sexual humiliation in the treatment of Jesus, and even this may not disclose the full horror of Jesus' torture before his death. Although this may be a very disturbing suggestion at first, at a theological level, a God who has identified with the victims of sexual abuse can be recognized as a positive challenge for contemporary Christian understanding and response. At a pastoral level, it could help sensitize people to the experiences of those who have suffered sexual abuse and, in some cases, might even become a healing step for the victims themselves."

I've tried living in more crowded places, such as Denver, or Atlanta, but after a year or two I always end up back in the high plains, where the antelope greatly outnumber the people. I've worked the usual jobs that writers end up with--cook, cowboy, roughneck, ambulance driver-- but mainly I've been a land surveyor, specializing in remote areas of the west and also Alaska, where I've helped to build airstrips, pipelines, gold mines and power plants. I like land surveying in the bush because it's outdoor work and there are few people and very little noise.For the last decade I've spent half of every year in Latin America.

However, since the “usual suspect” Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pocket of big pharma) arbitrarily place restrictions at airports and impose new lockdowns (i.e. Soviet style house arrests), please stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates (estimated to be in late Summer). That will happen when USA and Latin America airports drop the Cov-idiot test requirements, scheduled to be when so-called "Herd Immunity" has been achieved. We're on it and will keep you posted…       #1- Gringo “Good Samaritans” The rumor is that an expat can get screwed by being a good guy and helping a person who has been in an accident. Do those universal “Good Samaritan” laws apply?       #2- What to do if you get into a car or motorcycle accident: Tips on how, after a traffic accident, you can do damage control and avoid getting your car impounded by the cops…   #3- What to do after the Expat “Honeymoon” period is over and you begin to experience the next phase, the “fish out of water” syndrome: Soon enough every Expat asks himself if he did the right thing. Today we talk about adaptation, how to stay flexible and some tips on how not to sweat the small stuff:   #4- Is so called “White Privilage” and analogue to “Gringo Advantage" in Latin America: Some thoughts on the idea that certain long term Expats admit that the “Gringo Advantage” is not all fair and it's much like White Privilege on steroids. So what's a gringo to do? Since there's no way you can't change it, should you lament and call out foul or just go with the flow?     #5- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don't feel quite confident enough to dive in? Our own Captain Mango has developed a unique one-on-one Crypto consulting and training service (he's been deep into crypto since 2013).

EP. 61 3 Relationship-Centered Goals for Leadership Development in a Hybrid Work Environment

Today on the podcast, we have David Nour, a trusted adviser to global clients, corporate leaders, and rising entrepreneurs and the author of the recent book, Curve Benders. David is an expert in Relationship Economics: how to build enduring relationships that last a lifetime. Inside this episode, David shares how deepening relationships is the way to succeed in today's distributed workplace. David proposes three relationship-centered goals for leadership development in a hybrid work environment that allow leaders to both deepen their relationships and stretch the true potential of their teams no matter where they are. Relationships: Your Company's Biggest Undervalued AssetCompanies rarely tap into their biggest undervalued asset: relationships. Strategic relationship planning is the most important part of a business strategy, yet is often overlooked.The question for leaders today is, how do you build that relationship-centric team, especially now where many teams are not getting together physically? Goal #1 Relationships Before BusinessEarly in David's career, he thought about how he could combine the art and science of relationships to teach people how to identify, build, nurture, and sustain valued relationships beyond the inauthentic “networking” lessons. David wants to teach the following practices. Unlike typical - and often ineffective networking approaches--David talks about the value of relationship deposits, where you cannot ask for a favor until you've earned the right to do so.With his experience living in several cultures, David was able to see the vastly different ideologies within relationship economics in different countries compared to America. In other countries like Iran, Asia, and Latin America, relationships are built first before two people conduct business. Unfortunately, we as Americans are so focused on the business first, that we typically don't focus on relationships until after there is a good business fit. Once the business part works, we then begin forming relationships. But when it comes to having a successful business, leaders must remember that people will prioritize who they will invest in based on their relationship with you. Their relationship with you is based on four considerations: know, like, trust and respect. Relationships must be first, you must get other people to know, like, trust and respect you before you engage in business. Trying to bypass these four factors rarely works. To be an effective leader for your hybrid teams and for your customer, it is so important to build relationships first before doing business.Goal #2 Build Relationship Centric TeamsRelationship centric teams have three characteristics:1. A defined set of personal characteristicsRelationship-centric teams need a clearly defined set of characteristics that they know are required for that team to succeed. The team then needs to be clear on further developing these characteristics. Many teams look for characteristics such as grit, personal accountability, responsibility, and proactiveness. 2. Trust. Trust is easy to talk about, but incredibly difficult to build, nurture, and sustain. Trust takes years to develop, and an instant to destroy it. When it is destroyed, it's often because one is Pennywise and pound foolish. Relationship-centric teams are skilled in developing trust and having conversations around when trust is broken.Click here for the entire summary

BIO: Neivia Justa is a journalist, entrepreneur, speaker, mentor and teacher, founder and leader of JustaCausa, with 30 years of experience as an executive in communication, culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion, in leadership positions at companies such as Timex, Natura, GE, Goodyear, and J&J. STORY: Neivia turned down an invite to move to Ohio when the company she was working for moved. Afraid of being unemployed, she took the first job offer she got without doing any background research on the company. It turned out to be the most sexist company ever, and she quit after just three months. LEARNING: Don't take just any job you get because you're afraid of being jobless. Always stand up for yourself and what you believe in.   “If you learn to stand out for yourself, you get stronger.”Neivia Justa  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/neiviajusta/ (Neivia Justa) is a journalist, entrepreneur, speaker, mentor and teacher, founder and leader of JustaCausa, with 30 years of experience as an executive in communication, culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion, in leadership positions at companies such as Timex, Natura, GE, Goodyear, and J&J. Creator of #líderComNeivia program and the social media movements #ondeestãoasmulheres and #aquiestãoasmulheres, she was the winner of Troféu Mulher Imprensa (Women's Press Trophy) and Prêmio Aberje in 2017 and, in 2018, was elected one of LinkedIn Brazil Top Voices. Worst investment everIn 2015, the company that Neivia was working for relocated its offices from Latin America to Ohio, and she was invited to move there. However, she was not sure she wanted to leave one of the biggest cities in the world and move to a small town. She dilly-dallied with her decision for about six months when her boss insisted it was time to decide. Neivia decided not to move to Ohio, much to her husband's disappointment, as he dreamed of living in the US. Her husband was not pleased with her decision and didn't speak to her for a month. Now that she decided to stay, it meant that Neivia would be jobless soon. Because she didn't want to be unemployed, she took the first job that she got. During the job interview, some red flags indicated that this wasn't a good company to work in, but Neivia hardly paid any attention to them. She simply wanted to get the job, and she did. The company turned out to be sexist, and the boss was the worst she's ever worked with. She quit after just three months because she couldn't stand it. Lessons learnedDon't accept any job that comes along just because you're afraid to be unemployed. Before accepting a job, understand the company's purpose, talk to people who have worked there or still work there and look at how the leaders behave, think, and treat people. Andrew's takeawaysStand up for yourself and for what's right. Actionable adviceWhen looking for a job, pay attention to the people working for that company because companies are made by people, and those people build the culture. A healthy culture is created by healthy people who respect others and want to collaborate and serve people. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsNeivia's number one goal for the next 12 months is to connect and help develop true leaders that love people and who want to assume their responsibility to make our world fairer, more equal, and more sustainable.   [spp-transcript]   Connect with Neivia Justahttps://www.linkedin.com/in/neiviajusta/ (LinkedIn) https://www.facebook.com/neivia.justa (Facebook) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqDSDCzZ_u6ol7aB58mDJWQ (YouTube) https://www.linkedin.com/newsletters/diversity-inclusion-6532001192615178240/ (Blog) Andrew's bookshttps://amzn.to/3qrfHjX (How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market) https://amzn.to/2PDApAo (My Worst Investment Ever) https://amzn.to/3v6ip1Y (9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them) https://amzn.to/3emBO8M (Transform Your Business with Dr.Deming's 14...

Now, why would broke and unhinged Uncle Slam wanna do that? Duh! Obviously to keep an eye on the disturbing number of sheep who getting the hell out of Dodge and voting with their feet. Big Brother is exercising damage control and busily finding ways to keep track of the sheep who have left the barn.   #2- What happens when Gringos and Expat overstay their visas: It used to be simple and not much of a problem. Up until very recently, if you overstayed your time you paid a little fine (per number of days overstayed) and all was forgiven. However, all this is changing for the worse. In some Latin countries most recently, immigration rules are suddenly being enforced to the letter. In Mexico for example, the immigration cops are stopping public busses and checking documents. And Gringos and Expats caught overstaying rounded up and deported (along with the illegals trying to sneak into the states).    #3- Beware of those “Latin Cupid” dating sites: Its ben said a million times that men are suckers for a pretty face. And gringo males, especially guys who speak no Spanish, are no exception and gullible to boot. They get scammed over and over again, yet they keep getting on those stupid Cupid dating sites hoping to meet Ms. Right. But from the many sad stories I've heard, it seems 80% of the women who post on Latina Cupid dating sites are in it for money. It's a no brainer for those bad girls too. In fact its become a 24/7 job for some of them, stringing out as many stupid gringos as they can and hitting each one up for money each month.

Guazú & Terror/Cactus - "Almita" from the 2021 EP Botanas: Guazú & Terror Cactus on Shika Shika Collective. “Almita” is one of three tracks on an EP that melds the simpatico genius of two Argentine-born producers living nearly seven thousand miles away from each other. With Lucas Page a.k.a GUAZÚ  in Buenos Aires and Martin Selasco aka Terror/Cactus in Seattle, it should have been difficult to find each other. Luckily, with the help of social media, the two recognized their shared history and influences as well as their individual styles and started exchanging remixes. Via email, a collaboration was sprung and, with the help of Berlin label Shika Shika, Botanas was born. GUAZÚ's dark and mysterious sound is centered around the rich percussive legacy of Latin America with ample use of marimbas, bombo legüeros, warm guitars, kalimbas and birdsong . Terror/Cactus' more upbeat sound takes its main inspiration from cumbia with a modern electronic flair. Together, they've made something that seems like it could fit just as comfortably in the techno clubs of their label's hometown  as in the dancehalls of Buenos Aires.

In our conversation we discuss her early blogging days and the rise of social, how to back more diverse founders, evaluating solo founders and Latin America. Some of the questions I asked Claire: What was your initial attraction to technology and how did you end up as early employee at Twitter? What were some the initiatives did you How did you get the pope on Twitter What are some of the strategies that you've seen work for entrepreneurs when it comes to growing their business on social media, particularly Twitter? How do you think about the future of social? We've talked about on this show how brands of today are founder driven, meaning the founder's story and ability to story tell can be a large part of what's resinating with consumer. When you are underwriting, how do you think about the separation from the founder and the business? You invest in both Latin America and the US. What are some of the biggest opportunities in the the latin American market within B2C facing businesses?What's most misunderstood about Latin America by U.S. investors? Walk us through your due diligence process. How do you evaluate opportunities? One of the parts of venture capital is bringing more diversity to the table, especially women, and investing in more women founders. What has to change in order for this to happen? I believe even before the pandemic, you were a proponent on using Zoom and online communication tools as a way to meet new people and invest. Now we've seen an acceleration of this during COVID, but how does this change where venture ecosystems exist? What's one thing that you would change about venture capital? What's one book that inspired you personally and one book that inspired you professionally? What's the best piece of advice that you've received? What's one piece of advice for founders?
