Firestein is the inaugural president and CEO of the George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations (Bush China Foundation) and a founding and current member of the Foundation's Board of Directors. He is based in Austin, Texas.Prior to joining the Bush China Foundation, Mr. Firestein was the founding executive director of The University of Texas at Austin's (UT) China Public Policy Center (CPPC) and a clinical professor at UT's Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. Before moving to UT, Mr. Firestein served as senior vice president and Perot Fellow at the New York City-based EastWest Institute (EWI), where he led the Institute's track 2 diplomacy work in the areas of U.S.-China relations, East Asian security and U.S.-Russia relations; Mr. Firestein, who held EWI's lone endowed chair, remains one of the longest-serving senior executives in EWI history.A decorated career U.S. diplomat from 1992–2010, Mr. Firestein specialized primarily in U.S.-China relations. Among the honors he garnered during his diplomatic career were the Secretary of State's Award for Public Outreach (2006) and the Linguist of the Year Award (1997). Toward the end of his State Department career, he served as an elected member of the Board of Governors of the American Foreign Service Association (AFSA), the union and professional association of the United States Foreign Service; in this capacity, he represented and worked to advance the interests of several thousand State Department constituents. He also served as the elected president of the large community associations of the U.S. embassies in Beijing and Moscow.Mr. Firestein is the author or co-author of three books on China, including two China-published Chinese-language best-sellers, as well as a large number of China-focused monographs, policy reports and articles (and publications on non-China-related topics). As a writer, Mr. Firestein broke new ground in a number of ways:  in the mid-1990s, he became the first foreign citizen to have a regular column in a People's Republic of China newspaper and the first foreign diplomat (and perhaps the first foreign citizen) to publish an original book in the country, among other milestones.  He is a prolific public speaker and frequent commentator in the U.S. and Chinese media. The Voice of America's Mandarin Service wrote in 2016 that Mr. Firestein is “one of the world's best non-native speakers of Mandarin Chinese”; early in his career, he interpreted for dozens of top-level U.S. and Chinese leaders and officials. (Mr. Firestein also speaks Russian.)In the years since he left the State Department, Mr. Firestein has produced path-breaking Capitol Hill testimony, thought leadership and scholarship on a wide range of topics, including U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, U.S.-China trade, the role of national exceptionalism as a driver of major international conflict, the value of government, U.S. public diplomacy in the wake of 9/11 and the use of contemporary country music as presidential campaign communication. Numerous incumbent and former U.S. secretaries of state and national security advisors from both sides of the partisan aisle—along with multiple other incumbent and former U.S. Cabinet members, members of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, U.S. combatant commanders and other prominent U.S. figures—have lauded his contributions and achievements in the area of U.S.-China relations.In recent years, Mr. Firestein periodically has been invited to brief significant swaths of the U.S. investment community, including via the 20-20 Investment Association and the Pacific Pension & Investment Institute, which together represent well over $30 trillion under management, on China and U.S.-China relations.Mr. Firestein currently serves on the boards of directors or advisors of over a dozen foreign affairs-focused, business-focused, China-focused and Texas-focused U.S. non-profit organizations. Of particular note, he is one of the few Americans who is concurrently formally affiliated with two different U.S. presidential legacy entities (the Bush China Foundation; and the LBJ School of Public Affairs, where he serves on the Dean's Advisory Council). He is also the only non-profit executive ever elected to the Board of Directors of the Texas Association of Business, Texas' influential chamber of commerce. And he is a member of the founding, and current, Board of Directors of the U.S. Heartland China Association, where he serves as the inaugural chairman of the policy committee.Mr. Firestein was a member of the graduate faculty of The University of Texas at Austin for a total of four academic years, most recently from 2017 to 2019.  He was also the first foreign diplomat ever to teach courses and coach debate at MGIMO (now, MGIMO University), Russia's premier foreign affairs training ground.A native of Austin, Texas and current resident of the Austin area, Mr. Firestein holds a bachelor's degree from Georgetown University and two master's degrees from The University of Texas at Austin, as well as various advanced training certifications from the National Foreign Affairs Training Center of the U.S. Department of State.

In this episode, I share an incredibly insightful chat with Jamie, the language coach behind Multilingual Mastery. We recently sat down together for a wonderful conversation touching on a wide range of language learning topics. Jamie shares how she got into language coaching after realizing that she'd been approaching her own language learning all wrong. She had followed all the standard advice, used all the typical resources, and even lived in the country where her language was spoken. After everything, however, she still didn't feel fluent. Instead of throwing in the towel, she decided to start talking about language learning on her blog, and today she shares a lot of what she discovered about language apps, language advice, and language learners through her experience researching about learning languages, and how that led her to start Multilingual Mastery. In this conversation, Jamie and I talk about language advice, expectations, standards, and buzz words you hear in the language learning community that can easily lead to burn-out, stagnation, and anxiety. We talk about what sustainable language learning can look like, why the word “fluent” really gets under our skin, and how we can each take control of our own unique language journeys. Jamie shares an overview of her Multilingual Mastery Method and how she helps her clients discover a sustainable and flexible language plan for themselves, tailored to their particular goals and desires. I had a wonderful time chatting with Jamie. She definitely gave me a lot to think about when it comes to how I view my own language journey, and I hope you get something out of our conversation, as well.

In this episode, I talk about limited resources in language learning. No matter what language you're learning, resources directly related to learning or acquiring the language are limited (even if it seems overwhelmingly the opposite). No matter our life situation, we all have limited time, money, energy, motivation, and so on. The interesting thing about these resources, however, is that when we're low on one, we can usually work around that limitation. Podcasts, YouTube, and public libraries are just a few examples of things language learners can use when low on money. If we're low on time, we can double up on tasks by listening to a podcast or audiobook in our target language while cleaning house. Even if we're low on energy, we can listen to calming music in our new language while taking a hot bath. Language learners are very creative, and finding ways to work with limited resources is our specialty. But there's still one resource I don't think we consider often enough, and I believe it's the most limited resource for each of us. And this resource (which I won't spoil in the description here) is one that can't be navigated around. It can't be outsourced in any way. Think you've figured out what it is? Listen in to see if you agree and to hear my thoughts on what we can do to preserve our most precious, limited resource while also getting the most out of it.

We left off in "7 Minutes in Heaven" as Lorenzo was enjoying the privilege of spanking Beauty, his Goddess, in a twist of fate. However, testing his limits proves to only slow him down as Beauty & the Goddess Counsel decide that Lorenzo must earn the last strike.In this erotic tale, Meg begins with setting the mood before bringing us into the reverie with an invocation and the next development entitled, "The Last Strike." This erotic tale features spanking, begging, foot worship, voyeurism, and BDSM elements of power exchange.Footage of the spanking scene is available in Meg's Tantric Temple to members only, and if you would like a full listening experience, Meg advises you to indulge in the scent "Venus" created by Stella Lux Creations.

Sept. 11th Vet FOCUS: DoD Arabic Linguist & Intel Analyst Senior Chief Gabe Morris, USN (Ret) TRP Episode 87

It's my personal pet peeve that we say Never Forget for 9/11, and yet days later, we forget Constitution Day, which is a bigger deal for a much longer time. That won't happen on The Republican Professor Podcast, at least not while I'm running it. Constitution Day should be as great, if not greater a day than July 4th, for without Separation of Powers, the Declaration would just be a piece of paper. This year's TRP 9/11 memorial episode guest is a very special man, Senior Chief Gabe Morris, USN (retired). Senior Chief Morris spent over 22 years in the United States Navy working as a Linguist and Intelligence Analyst with the Tagalog and Arabic languages. (Why would we need Arabic linguists ? Hmmm). His experience is as varied as very intense immersion-style academic training in the languages mentioned above, shore-based intelligence support, deployed special operations in the Middle East and elsewhere, but also includes time in Navy law enforcement, LEO special criminal investigations, and time as an instructor in support of Navy training, culminating in a highly specialized personnel billeting position for Navy linguists/intelligence orders which was a job for a Master Chief, which Gabe performed as a Senior Chief. As impressive as his unique Navy career is and was, from my perspective, most impressive is that he stayed happily married for over 20 years of his active service, while in at times quite stressful operating conditions. I was at his wedding at Lover's Point, Pacific Grove , California in the early 90s, when California had a Republican governor (remember those times?). He's a humble servant of Christ, and he has been that way the entire time I've known him. He's what we call in the business a true believer, and it was a pleasure catching back up with him. The Republican Professor is a pro-true-believer, pro-Navy-linguist, pro-special-operations, pro-intel-analyst, pro-good-LEO, pro-staying-married-for-a-long-time-through-thick-and-thin, pro-awesome-example-for-the-kids podcast. Therefore, welcome Senior Chief Gabe Morris, United States Navy, retired, for TRP 2022 9/11 Never Forget podcast episode. (The kids never knew in the first place, never forget that you can't forget what you never knew). (That's why we need to tell them about it).

In this third episode, Meg begins with a short recap of the season in order to explain what brings her to this current episode that features themes of Domestic Abuse, Divorce, and Red Flags. Meg provides some context in the hope of explaining to her audience that Domestic Abuse often is a slow process, which is why microaggressions are often overlooked until microaggressions become more dangerous -- which is why so many individuals stay in abusive relationships. She goes over the smaller red flags that she overlooked, because of the abusive situations she experienced in her home life -- often seeing red as ways to be more helpful. Follow her tale of the husband who became a beast she had to flee from before she became the Beast Tamer she is today. A tale of survival from settling for less, Meg demonstrates that even though leaving an abusive relationship is difficult, the strength to leave can be fulfilling on its own.

Helen Lewis was raised a Catholic, but is now an atheist - and has also spent the last ten years writing about feminism. Recently, she was asked if she thought feminism had replaced religion in her life. It's a timely question, since the British Social Attitudes Survey says that the decline of religious belief is “one of the most important trends in post-war history”. But have we really become less religious? Or has our hunger for truth and meaning simply transferred itself to social justice politics? In this programme, Helen Lewis considers the religious overtones of the “culture wars”. On both left and right, she finds unquestionable doctrines, charismatic preachers, blasphemy and heresy - and the promise of salvation. Talking to religious leaders, atheists, and voices from across the social and political spectrum, Helen considers the parallels - both good and bad - between traditional religion and modern social justice movements. Helen is also on the hunt for some answers. Can we take the religious fervour out of politics? Or — and this is hard for an atheist like Helen to accept — should we encourage a revival of traditional faiths to fulfil our spiritual impulses?

This week's podcast kicks off with a discussion of the recently released class profiles for UCLA / Anderson and Cornell / Johnson. Both programs showcase impressive incoming students and stats overall, but there are some notable trends to observe around application volume and an uptick in the percentage of international students at these US-based programs. This potentially leads to a downward pressure on gender diversity, as the international pool traditionally has fewer women (as a percentage) than the domestic pool. Alex noted the fast-approaching R1 deadlines for this season, and Graham highlighted the Adcom Q&As that were recently published for Washington / Foster, Maryland / Smith, Ohio State / Fisher, SMU / Cox, Boston College / Carroll, Manchester / Alliance and IMD. Graham also highlighted our recent Real Humans Alumni event, which included alums working at Deloitte, Disney, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft and BCG. Graham then pitched the upcoming essay workshop series, which includes three events on September 14, September 21 and September 28. And finally, Graham and Alex also chatted about the upcoming private webinar for Clear Admit+ members, slated for August 29th.  You can join CA+ and the webinar here: https://www.clearadmit.com/clearadmit-plus-members/ As always, this episode features in-depth breakdowns of three candidacies - all from ApplyWire this week: First up, Alex chooses an Indian candidate who worked in investment banking before building an EdTech startup with $1m in revenue to date and some substantial impact. With a rather unorthodox 10 years of work experience, they are seeking a top FT MBA program in the U.S., but have not yet taken the GMAT. Although there are several challenges to consider, Alex and Graham suggest that targeting the first rounds would be helpful, if the candidate can (move up the GMAT), spreading their list of target programs will also help (MIT / Sloan has a deadline of September 29). This week's second candidate has a super GMAT, strong engineering academics, and what appears to be strong work experience in the Aerospace and Defense industry. This led to a discussion on their gender, and if and why that might matter; Alex thinks they should also target Stanford. This week's third candidate is an enlisted Army linguist working in the intelligence field. They also have a super GMAT. We think they might adjust their target programs a little, and perhaps fine-tune their goals, but potentially there is a lot to like. This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England. It was produced and engineered by Dennis Crowley in Illadelphia, home of the potentially wild-card bound Phillies. Thanks for reading this far, and for joining us!

She introduces why this topic is so important before sharing a story about Princess and Leo, entitled, "Leo & the Very Unpleasant Word."

Enjoy the story and learn from the experience shared here that you don't have to settle for less than the experience you want and desire most. As Meg reminds us in closing, "It is my hope that this story reminds everyone that sex is always going to be a better experience if someone chooses you. It feels better if someone wants you. It is satisfying when you both desire it with each other. And maybe the most emotionally satisfying sex is filled with intimacy that is constructed over time together. Because then, the other person desires your comfort and pleasure in such a way that one can rest easy in the experience and know you are safe to be present erotically, and savor and sense while in a vulnerable position."Sponsored by: Stella Lux CreationsOnlyFansWebsiteCashAppVenmoIntroduction Plays:Sex Isn't Intimacy.
