Until recently, District 28 was characterized by a white Northside, and a Black Southside. For more than a hundred years, we've seen how conflicts around housing, schools, and resources have played out mostly along this racial divide. So how did District 28 go from being defined by this racial binary, to a place where people brag about its diversity?In this episode, we take a deep dive into two immigrant communities — Indo-Caribbeans and Bukharian Jews — that have settled in Queens: how they got here, what they brought with them, and what they make of their new home's old problems.Click here for a full episode transcript.Join us at the Queens Public Library on December 15!Are you using School Colors in your own teaching or organizing?

A company's success is measured by the happiness of its employees, and that goes for any industry we can think of. This sounds like basic knowledge, but increasing happiness in the workplace is one of the most overlooked and at the same time essential changes a company can make in order to be more successful. Often times even simple acknowledgements like a handshake or a hello at the beginning of the day can really impact an employee's level of engagement and create a positive workplace culture.Today, on The Melting Pot, we are joined by Tom Peters, a business management pioneer and co-author of “In Search Of Excellence”, the book that, to this day, is recognized as one of the most influential books about business practices. Through this work, Tom's ultimate goal was to motivate business owners and entrepreneurs to focus more on their employees and the way their happiness directly affects productivity and to discover their products through the eyes of their customers.Twenty books and forty years later, Tom is still one of the leading management thinkers, preaching about the importance of human connection and creating business excellence through work culture.Listen and download this fascinating episode in which Tom shares the story behind his well-known bestseller, the legacy that leaders should really focus on leaving behind and his views on women as business leaders, remote leadership and building excellent culture in this “work from home” era. In today's episode: 40 years of “In Search Of Excellence”- the book that changed the way the world does businessWhy businesses need more women leadersA leader's job is to grow peopleRemote leadership and building excellent culture and business in the “work from home” eraTom's latest book, “The Compact Guide To Excellence” Links: Website - Tom Peters.comLinkedin- Tom PetersTwitter-@tom_petersYoutube- Tom PetersBlog- tompeters!Biography- Tom PetersPublications-Tom Peters- books and articlesTom's latest book- Tom Peters' Compact Guide to Excellence How Human Connection Can Lead A Business To Excellence With Tom Peters, Co-author Of “In Search Of Excellence” Tom Peters is a well-renowned business management pioneer and co-author of “In Search of Excellence”, the book that even 40 years after its publication is still considered to be the book that changed the way the world does business. But as he himself declares, this is just one of the numerous ventures in his life and career. Tom attended Cornell University where he received a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and a master's degree and later on, earned an MBA and a PhD in Organizational Behaviourfrom the Stanford Graduate School of business. During the war in Vietnam, he served in the U.S. Navy, making two deployments as a Navy Seabee and also participated in an exchange program between the U.S. Navy and the Royal Navy (UK) which led to him serving as a midshipman on the HMS Tiger (a battlecruiser built for the Royal Navy during the 1910s). While working forMcKinsey & Company, he was inspired to develop different practices for business management that support the idea that productivity can be achieved through people that work for the company, and that businesses should not focus only on financial data. “I've spent my life trying to tell leaders to stand in the door in the morning and smile and say, glad to see you (but) the notion that the outcome in your organisation would be more affected by saying “good morning” than it would be by a business plan that could only be understood by Nobel laureates in mathematics, it just doesn't feel right to the business person. My little one-liner, one pager is business is people serving people, serving people. Leaders serving frontline employees, serving customers. It's all about that simple chain. That's the beginning, the middle, and the end.” 40 years of “In search of excellence”- the book that changed the way the world does business Almost 40 years after its original publication, “In Search of Excellence” remains a widely read classic and an influential book for leaders and managers. When Tom Peters and Robert Waterman were asked to do research on “culture” (or, as Tom translates it, “the way we do things around here”), they had the opportunity to meet John Young, the President of Hewlett Packard, one of the young companies that at the time was literally transforming the world. There, he got introduced to MBWA (management by wandering around) a style of business that offers managers the opportunity to connect directly with employees and collect information, deal with suggestions or complaints, and generally keep track of the organisation and increase productivity. “That hour in Hewlett Packard, in retrospect obviously, I wouldn't have a sense of it at the time, changed my life more than anything. What I learned from MBWA is that leadership is an intimate act. It is about human interaction, whether it's the founder of the company, uh, or whomever and the 26-year-old engineer. Today, we call it culture, but it's actually the humanity of the organization.” But, four decades later, Tom thinks that companies still have a hard time realising the importance of employees and how their happiness unequivocally affects productivity. “I find it as hard to sell today as it was years and years ago. People still wanna work on that hard stuff. They still wanna get the plan right. You know, my favourite quote of all is a general Omar Bradley quote: “Amateurs talk about strategy, professionals talk about logistics”. You can have the world's greatest strategy, but when you land on Omaha Beach on D-Day, unless the bullets are there to meet the guns, you know, all that other crap is immaterial.” A leader's legacy is to develop people Tom Peters remains to this day focused on putting people first and believes that training leaders to stay in intimate touch with the front-liners who do the real work is the best thing anyone can do for their company. “The role of a leader is to develop people. The leader is not supposed to be the best engineer. The leader is supposed to be the person who takes that group of 15 engineers and allows them to flourish and learn.”And most importantly, as Tom says, the true measure of a leader's legacy is not the amount of money he collected in his career, but the number of people whose lives he managed to transform and improve while they were under his command. “I did a lot of running around and speaking and I used PowerPoint slides. And my favourite one of all the millions had a tombstone on it, and on the tombstone said “$26,423,892 and 8 cents. Joe's net worth at the close of the market on the day he died”. And my comment is nobody's ever had a tombstone with their net worth on it.” Why businesses need more women leaders The stereotype that the business world is a male-dominated industry still exists. Companies need to renounce these old gender bias practices and realise that the perspective a woman brings into a business can breed creativity and innovative ideas that can push that organisation forward. Everything, from the way they evolved over time to the basic human characteristics that they possess, makes women better candidates to create and develop communities. There are even numerous studies that claim women are significantly “better-measured leaders than men”, says Tom, and the reticence regarding women's leadership is just another consequence of the fact that “we're still living in a boys' world.” Remote leadership and building excellent culture and business in the “work from home” era Despite his former beliefs, after these two years of Covid restrictions, Tom is now convinced that there is as much humanity and interaction in a remote environment as there is in a normal in-office attendance. “I still believe in the value of getting together, it's not a matter of one or the other, but I really believe that you can have an intimate, caring, people-centric organization where 98% of what you do is done remotely.” It was also during that Covid period that Tom developed the “Covid 19 Seven Leadership Commandments” which summarised, reveal “the only thing that matters in the end”, which is “helping people grow, thrive and have better lives” because ultimately “the right thing to do is also the profitable thing to do”. “ The Compact Guide To Excellence” When asked about the book he prefers out of the 20 he's written so far, Tom admits that the latest always becomes his favourite. But he feels that “The Compact Guide To Excellence”, co-written with Nancy Green, is really the first one of his books he's fallen in love with. “I've been writing about and talking about design and the power of design for 25 years, but the power of this book is its look, feel, taste, touch, and smell as much as it is the words that are inside.” Book recommendations:Stephen Trzeciak, Anthony Mazzarelli- Compassionomics: The Revolutionary Scientific Evidence That Caring Makes a Difference Nicole Perlroth- This Is How They Tell Me The World Ends Enjoyed the show?Leave Us A Review
A seven-hour drive southwest of the Tunisian capital lies Chott el-Djerid, north Africa's largest salt lake and the setting for the thirteenth edition of Tunis Fashion Week. The youngest designer participating, 18-year-old Haroun Ghanmi, celebrates the Tunisian techno scene, while fellow designer Yousra Sen creates one-of-a-kind pieces. Everyone here knows the value of a beautiful backdrop – the communications potential was too good to miss even for Ukrainian label Kristina Laptso, whose team spent more than three days travelling to the festival's stunning location. However, the designer herself was unable to leave Lviv.

Du lundi au vendredi, dans Demain au travail, un responsable d'entreprise raconte au micro d'Europe 1 une innovation mise en place au sein de son entreprise pour le bien-être de ses salariés.
When it comes to leadership, we normally think of one person that is in charge of holding the reins and steering the direction of a company. While it might seem counterintuitive to our traditional view regarding authority, oftentimes equally sharing power and influence can have more benefits than we can imagine.Robert Chapman, co-founder of Firebrand joins today's episode of The Melting Pot and shares how Firebrand became an incontestable leader of the Accelerated Learning market, with 21 years of continued growth and performance even while going through three major recessions and a world pandemic.We talk about the unconventional way he and his business partner Stefano Capaldo shared the responsibilities of leading the company as co-CEOs, the sales and marketing strategies they've improved and adapted for Firebrand and how they transformed Verne Harnish's book, “Scaling up” into the perfect blueprint for scaling their company. This is a fascinating episode packed full of insights, so make sure to download and listen. In today's episode: 21 years of successful business in an unconventional co-leadershipDelivering high-quality training at twice the speed of traditional methodsLeading a business through four recessionsThe Firebrand version of scaling up and the one thing that ensured its successSales and Marketing strategies they learned at Onyx and implemented in FirebrandSelling to BPP 21 years of successful business in an unconventional co-leadership, with Robert Chapman, co-founder of Firebrand Firebrand Training was co-founded by Stefano Capaldo and Robert Chapman and for the last 21 years has been a leader in the Accelerated Learning market. Even though conventional wisdom says two heads are better than one, co-partnership in the business world is often looked at as the odd one out. So how did Robert and Stefano build a successful company under such unconventional leadership?Like all relationships, being co-leaders requires trust, constant communication and a very clear understanding of the role each CEO has.“I was in charge of business development, sales, marketing, go-to-market strategy, he was in charge of delivering, hence the cook it, catch it tactic. If I got the fish, I threw it over the fence and I just trusted Stefano to go and make sure a great meal conjures up.”Delivering high-quality training at twice the speed of traditional methods Since its inception in 2001, Firebrand has grown at an incredible rate, from a start-up to a £ 20 million business. A testament to the value they offer through their unique Accelerated Learning methodology is their applicants' high rate of success in getting their IT and project management certification.“That puts a huge amount of pressure on us,” says Robert. “We gotta do a great job. We can't hide if the instructor's done a poor job of delivering that knowledge.”Leading a business through four recessions In regards to their leadership strategy, they've certainly made the right decisions, because successfully navigating a company through 4 major recessions including a global pandemic is not something everyone can do.“We took some really difficult decisions. We did make some people redundant, we asked staff to take pay cuts. But by the end of 2020, we'd navigated those waters pretty well and in a really strong position financially and paid back all the staff that had pay cuts.”“I do genuinely get really emotional because so many people went the extra mile during those periods and they genuinely didn't complain.” The Firebrand version of scaling up and the one thing that ensured its success When Brett Raynes, CEO of Cloud Direct and Robert's good friend told him to read “Scaling up” written by Verne Harnish he didn't imagine that this recommendation would become the blueprint for scaling Firebrand. “I vividly remember him saying, I've just read this book called “Scaling up”. You should read it. I read it and then I said to Stef, you should read this because I think this is the answer to the problem we've got.”So they tried everything in that book, and whatever stuck became the Firebrand version of scaling up. And from that trial and error strategy, there was one thing that became the determinant factor for their success.“I'd say it's the meeting rhythm and getting the cadence of a business and forcing the business to meet,” says Robert. “ If you do just that one thing, I'd be amazed if your business doesn't fly.Sales and Marketing strategies Robert learned at Onyx and implemented in Firebrand There are three key factors that Robert claims to have worked for them and transformed Firebrand into an incontestable leader in the Market. “Define your product, have great people, have great processes.” If you manage to be disciplined and keep these three elements going and “build on brand memory in such a way that people recognize the thing, but don't get confused” then your path to success is almost guaranteed. Deciding to sell For Robert and Stefano, 2022 was the year of the great leap. After leading their business for two decades, it came time for them to sell. “We planned it for years. You know, we didn't sort of wake up last November when BPP approached us and went, oh yeah, that's a great idea. We'll do that. We've been building up to it, again, off the back of scaling up. So it wasn't an overnight decision. (...) I'm 56 and when you think about it, you have to exit a business”, says Robert about Firebrand being recently acquired by BPP.But they never forgot to take into consideration their staff and the years they've dedicated to Firebrand. “I'm absolutely delighted that we've exited to BPP. It's so much about it that's right and the thing that's most right it's that it's great for the staff of Fiber. That's the thing I'm most proud of. So it wasn't kind of, the money's good but we don't like the guy we're selling to, which would have been a huge compromise.” Links: Linkedin-Robert ChapmanWebsite- Firebrand TrainingLinkedin- Firebrand TrainingTwitter- @BeAFirebrand Book recommendations:Verne Harnish- Scaling upAndrew Griffiths- Someone Has To Be The Most Expensive, Why Not Make It You?Jim Collins- Turning The FlywheelGeoffrey Moore- Crossing The ChasmRichard Shotton- The Choice Factory: How 25 Behavioural Biases Influence the Products We Decide to BuyAndy Maslen- Write to Sell: The Ultimate Guide to Great CopywritingConversion Rate Experts- Making Websites Win: Apply the Customer-Centric Methodology That Has Doubled the Sales of Many Leading Websites Enjoyed the show?Leave Us A Review

Episode 3 of this very special The Zero Period and Melting Pot collaborative series is an important conversation with Simran Nanda an upcoming social worker with a focus on sexuality education, gender-based violence, and universal human rights. Since the age of 14, Simran has been an active advocate and ally in raising awareness for LGBTQIA+ rights and inclusion. She is currently a sexuality educator at Zero Period, designing and delivering programmes on sexuality education to school teachers across a wide range of demographics.This led to her association with the Pratisandhi Foundation, a youth-led NGO dedicated to the promotion of sexual rights and awareness where she worked as a program manager, public speaker, and curriculum designer, which allowed her to delve deeper into the cause of an educational intervention to introduce a curriculum in sexual education in an age-appropriate manner.

Pastor Newms: [13:18] It's an unexcused absence and but yet. Pastor Bill: [13:21] That's going to be fun when that turns around and bites them on the but when parents figured that out and. Pastor Newms: [13:26] Oh no that's. Pastor Bill: [13:27] Send their kid to school when they're contagious. Pastor Newms: [13:30] That's that's how it's always been that's that's not new that was it was still unexcused absences during covid you can thank your governor for that, it's not the school systems the governor actually turned the emergency laws emergency rules that were, passed during covid C covid year the tour years there was an emergency thing that allowed all absences to be, excused if they were sickness related for that time period but both before that and now, that's just how it is it's one of the reasons it is the same here which is one of the reasons why we had to, pull Sarah out is because she misses so many days for her illness because, if you have two symptoms you gotta go like can't stay in school if you've got two symptoms well her issue is stomach related so, stomach pain which then your body tries to fight off with a fever, even though she's not sick at all that's to symptoms you're out for the day and so we were getting even in Texas we were getting letters constantly like your kid is. [14:49] If you miss this many more days your kid will not actually pass this grade blah blah blah and then the principal would have to write a letter saying that the kids actually at the point where they should be and it has to be signed by the teacher also for the kid to move forward, with health issues the health issues in in both of our states are not well taken care of which is also why. [15:13] Why I reward my girls on days, of that other kids get rewards for perfect attendance because perfect attendance is stupid because perfect attendance is impossible for anyone with a health issue which. So perfect attendance is stupid and if you celebrate it I think you're stupid. Pastor Bill: [15:36] So now it's time for getting another pastors. Pastor Newms: [15:38] Is it my card or your card I pulled a card I thought it was my card. Pastor Bill: [15:43] It can be your car that's fine. Pastor Newms: [15:44] I don't know I don't remember. If anyone of the national if anyone of the national holidays had to be twice a year 6 months apart which one would you want it to be what national holiday would you like to celebrate twice instead of once. Pastor Bill: [16:03] What are we calling and national holiday. Pastor Newms: [16:05] I don't know national holiday whatever you want to call it a day that the nation our nation celebrates. I don't think it has to be necessarily A like everything is closed national holiday but I would assume based on the question. I can think of two and they're both equally funny because I'm just a jerk. [16:42] It's an odd day it's 13 so newms is now an odd now we're not keeping track of that is 80 there's no way we can keep track of the even odd thing I can't do it he tries and fails we're not doing it, come on Bill come on come on national holiday. Pastor Bill: [17:00] I have no idea. Pastor Newms: [17:01] Come on I can think of two and they're equally funny and I would do it just because the funniness of it okay one Halloween is not a national holiday you don't get it off, so Halloween doesn't count. Pastor Bill: [17:16] I just hate it when the mail doesn't run so I would just get rid of all of them. Pastor Newms: [17:19] So the funny ones I think would be funny is if New Year's day was twice a year. I would also love if the Fourth of July was twice a year because it'd be the Fourth of July in the middle of December, or Pastor Bill: [17:44] Yeah. Pastor Newms: [17:45] Christmas in July because half the people already do that so any of those would be except any of those three would be acceptable just for the humor of them being twice a year. National holidays now let's be honest if we were in a different country it's completely different this month the next month, actually this month totally there's like, 10 or 15 national holidays in India like. And I know there's some next week there were some last week there's some you know it's just so that would be fun. Pastor Bill: [18:57] Like the one we just had like can we just stop can we just not do that anymore like no Columbus Day Monday was. Pastor Newms: [19:06] Oh well some states already have stopped I think there's three states already who knows. Pastor Bill: [19:14] The bank's didn't open the mail didn't run and Columbus is still a piece of not worthy of something to celebrate. Pastor Newms: [19:20] Well there's three states who have changed it legally to indigenous peoples day. Pastor Bill: [19:29] It shows up in the Apple calendar as both now. Pastor Newms: [19:32] Yeah because there are. Pastor Bill: [19:33] It's just people day. [19:50] Maybe we should start celebrating Columbus Day and we should build giant Effigies of Columbus and just burn them. Pastor Newms: [19:57] So I want to talk a lot. Pastor Bill: [19:59] Columbus Day. Pastor Newms: [20:00] I know this is not a shock, there's this particular Tick-Tock ER I follow and she does a skit called Hells Bells and it's about help desk which is the front desk of Hell help. Pastor Bill: [20:15] Ah yeah yeah yeah yeah. Pastor Newms: [20:16] Well she did one about. Pastor Bill: [20:19] They're Starkey and all that. Pastor Newms: [20:21] Yeah Sharky and all them they did one for ya, Leif Eriksson day they did one for Columbus Day and it's a it's a celebration down there and they bring him out and everyone gets to torture. Pastor Bill: [20:36] Everyone gets a turn. Pastor Newms: [20:37] Yeah everyone gets a turn on that day, and humorously Leif Erikson is one of the people they talked about in there and because the person that they're talking to is like why would the why would the Norse be here it's like oh they're still mad he said he did it first, so you know it's. Pastor Bill: [20:57] I like the ones of her videos where somebody shows up and they're like oh I knew you'd be here and she's she goes oh I just work here I live up there I just come here to work. Pastor Newms: [21:07] You're going down to level nine though it very much is a Dante's Inferno infernal infernal and fertile infertile. Style representation of Hell in her skits because that's what so many people think of but it's it's pretty funny sometimes she's got some good stuff. Pastor Bill: [21:37] Okay so let's get into this. Pastor Newms: [21:40] Okay do we have to. Pastor Bill: [21:42] We are on number 27 of 35, and we should be able to wrap this up tonight all right so number 27 gender identity is a matter of choice, twenty-four percent strongly agree. 18% somewhat agree seven percent aren't sure 13% somewhat disagree and 38 percent strongly disagree with the statement okay, once again if you haven't been listening to other two parts you should go to see the part. Pastor Newms: [22:18] You should. Pastor Bill: [22:18] As We complain endlessly about how awful this thing actually is, they're saying gender identity is a matter of choice but you know that's not what they're actually say right so so okay. Pastor Newms: [22:30] Asking. Pastor Bill: [22:36] When we're talking about gender identity you've only really got and I'm probably wrong but you've only really got two schools of thought. Pastor Newms: [22:47] Wrong. Pastor Bill: [22:49] Probably is that gender is. And if you have semen then you are the male gender and if you have. Eggs ovum. Pastor Newms: [23:20] I don't I don't know man you got me almost casting already. Pastor Bill: [23:22] If you have eggs then you are the female gender that's one school of thought there's another school of thought that gender identity, is created by cultural norms, and what is male and what is female what is masculine and what is feminine and the genders attached to those and the Spectrum in between of those is all created by culture. And they're technically both right neither one of those are technically wrong because our culture decided that the thing that has semen is a male, and has masculine attributes and our culture decided at the thing that creates the egg is a female and has, feminine attributes right, and so then we've got these people that are stuck in between going well I was born biologically. [24:26] But inside I don't fit any of these cultural, identity markers that culture has created for me I feel like I'm more the other definition, and then they Embrace that identity and try to make themselves outside look the way they feel inside right which still isn't a choice. Right you were born with a certain identity on the inside of you that you didn't choose. Pastor Newms: [25:00] Yeah and we've had this conversation on on other podcast before it's that difference between you know where made up of three parts just because the body doesn't fit, the spirit or Soul whichever one we want to use and we won't get into that argument Snyder we won't finish on time, that's different and like big said, people try to force everyone into a blue or pink you know and that's not correct and then you have the situations where. Both gender and, sex where they don't fit either where the chromosomes don't make sense where the you know they don't fought by make sense I mean follow the, the norm I don't mean they don't make sense because chromosomes are chromosomes they make sense but they don't fit that Norm of of what people have defined and and that's the part that I find really, humorous about people who try to make the argument that there's only two situations that can be true when it's like, that's not how nature works. Pastor Bill: [26:21] That's not facts at all that's 100% the culture that you. Live in that informs you of that decision you were born and raised in a culture that taught you there was only two options. Pastor Newms: [26:36] As well as. Pastor Bill: [26:41] And people are born every day that don't. That definition, that have intermix parts that have both parts that and that all goes back to what we were talking about before about God created everything perfect and then sin came in and started to grading it, and then now we're using building blocks that are over many thousands of years separated from creation, and corrupted and over and over and over and over and over and yeah of course we get people born with deformities of course we get people born with male bodies to have female, Souls if Spirits or have you want to stay at female identity on the inside of course we do, that doesn't degrade the value of that human life. I any means not like the implication of of the question is you know what I mean. Pastor Newms: [27:45] Yeah so there's this other I hate to bring Tick-Tock up so many times tonight but it's a Thursday not a Sunday so it's going to happen I'm not on my normal game. Pastor Bill: [27:55] The first day. Pastor Newms: [27:57] It's not a Thursday it's actually not been a very thirsty day but the, there's a tick tock train and it's like I've just forgotten the sum this up the sound but it's it's a person makes a statement is written across the screen and it's like, you know know speak up, and they say it's another statement that's a little bit closer to what they truly mean and then it's like no speak up and then they say what they actually mean and it's like yeah you're like I don't believe in this and you're like no say what you mean you don't understand it so you hate the person you know say what you mean don't say what you and that's, often in a lot of these questions where the problem lies is the questions are worded, not what the person means by asking the question first off and second off so we're just dumb. Pastor Bill: [29:02] All right I think we covered that one pretty well. Pastor Newms: [29:04] Do we have to go to the next one some of the some of these ones in this set I don't want to at all I really don't just because they're hot button topics we've talked about multiple times in the past, and I'm like when we're in podcast mode I have to try to be a good person and not say, some I can't speak up and so it's really hard some of these topics are really hard for me to be calm and nice to some of these people that just don't pay attention but number 29 let's go, 20:28 sorry I'm see I'm trying to skip. Pastor Bill: [29:40] All right, the Bible's condemnation of homosexual Behavior doesn't apply today that's the statement 30 percent strongly agree with that statement, the Bible's kind of nation doesn't apply anymore sixteen percent somewhat agree, twelve percent aren't sure 12% somewhat disagree in 30 percent strongly disagree so I mean that's that's a pretty even split down the middle of half and half, the only real, outlier here is the four percent higher of respondents somewhat agree other than that it's a pretty even split right down the middle on people's responses to that. Pastor Newms: [30:24] It is a pretty even split. Pastor Bill: [30:27] So this is this is this is the way I want to, frame the idea here so that I can try to get people on the same wavelength as what I'm thinking you know. The Bible condemns eating pork in the Old Testament for a reason right. And then by the time we get to the New Testament days that restriction the reason that restriction was given doesn't exist anymore. [31:00] And so you don't have scriptures in the New Testament saying don't eat pork right. The Old Testament is is hard on homosexual behavior in multiple places don't you know don't do this and. If you frame that in their cultural setting it makes 100% sense, that a relationship that has the inability to Bear fruits and multiply genetically, would be a detriment to a people group wandering the desert and people constantly dying and needing an influx of, babies right not to mention the cleanliness and the STD issue that, ancient civilizations, you know they had a lot more struggles with that than we do today with our medications and are our safety tools and are contraceptives and, I'm not going to say condoms because people in using making condoms out of goat bladder for, thousands of years so it's not necessarily the didn't have gone. Pastor Newms: [32:22] That's not much cleaner. Pastor Bill: [32:22] They had some version of it but it's much cleaner nail, um so with the New Testament with the question of homosexuality we go back to the the question we talked about in part 2 about what is this sex outside of traditional marriage, what does that look like and what is, what is the condemnation of the scriptures the condemnation of scriptures that we brought up was don't have sex outside of marriage as part of the worship of an idol don't go to the temple and have sex. Is part of worship of an idol you know what I mean so yeah there's there's this thing where it's like. All sex has a risk and all sex has an issue where, there's a there's a good way to do it there's a bad way to do it there's a way that's healthy for you in a way that's unhealthy for you and you just lump homosexual behavior in with that just because either, it makes you uncomfortable or it scares you or, you you think it's the same for you and so other people shouldn't do it if it is a sin for you then don't do it, you know what I mean like just don't do it if it's a sin for you than just don't participate in that I don't know how else to put it. Pastor Newms: [33:52] So for me there's there's there's two aspects one is what you're talking about and then when we look at like First Corinthians 10:23 which we've brought up so many times, throughout this and other times just because it's, a Crux of what Paul talks about is everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial everything is, permissible but not everything builds up you know so just because it's good for you doesn't mean it's good for someone else vice versa etc etc the other issue I have is, the scriptures in English that we hold in our hands do not have the same implications and connotations in a lot of times in a lot of places, that the original scripture did so, the Bible's condemnation of homosexual behavior in the majority of the verses that people use to condemn homosexuality, doesn't exist the concept of homosexuality to a certain degree didn't. [35:03] Exist because sexuality was just sexuality, for so many generations in eons and years and you know like there's the word didn't exist, when the Bible was written nor when the Bible was originally translated it's a word that came in. Pastor Bill: [35:23] The word didn't that the idea of. Pastor Newms: [35:26] The idea in the world I'm just saying the there's those that, so because of that a lot of times when the word is used in scripture it's not that word and not, meaning the only times you could actually infer that it does mean that, is actually the word isn't used it's set in a completely different way that makes you go okay yeah I see what he's saying there and there's a valid reason for it like you were mentioning, we need people to procreate because we're trying to kill off a whole group of people and we need new ones, let's be honest that's that's that's what the walking around was we need a whole new generation let's go and so you know. But that's the thing that always frustrates me especially about the New Testament is when people are like see it says it right there and you're like yeah it's not what that word means but okay. Pastor Bill: [36:25] Closest the closest words you get in the New Testament to homosexual is the word hetero sharks and, it's such a catch all that it, it's almost gross to use it for that because it covers everything from bestiality to necrotic relationship so it covers I mean it covers you know, lat. Pastor Newms: [36:53] Non non standard quote-unquote for those of you out there I'm not saying. Pastor Bill: [37:01] Directly translated it means attraction to strange flesh. [37:11] Okay we're going to move on because we don't need to beat a dead horse all right I mean we do that a lot on the breed Manifesto we're going to do that with this one number 29. Pastor Newms: [37:23] See all the other times we've talked about it combined them all in this horse is dead. Pastor Bill: [37:28] It seems dead God is unconcerned with my day-to-day decisions, eighteen percent strongly agree only 18 percent strongly agree that God is not concerned with your day-to-day decisions 14% somewhat agree 10% weren't sure 18% somewhat disagree and forty percent strongly disagree, and believe that God is, a micromanager. [38:00] I don't hold on I don't think God is interested in whether I put butter on my toast. Well I eat bacon and drink my coffee. I just don't there's no Eternal or worldwide impact to any of that decision for that day now if I was eating 10 pounds of bacon, for breakfast every morning and abusing myself and having that negative impact on me and everyone around me and my future well then yeah God's concerned because God you know God is love and love is concerned about, you know when you're doing unhealthy things like that but, to say that God is concerned with with your all of your day-to-day decisions like should I take a shower now or in 10 minutes should I lay on my left chin inside are my right hand side should I, you see what I'm you see what I'm saying that the questions kind of ridiculous. Pastor Newms: [39:00] Okay I'll let you finish first. Pastor Bill: [39:03] I did I just finished. Pastor Newms: [39:04] Okay so this is one of those interesting ones where I read the question completely. When it says God is unconcerned with my day-to-day decisions I disagreed because God loves us and does not want us to worry because we're covered in being watched, because there are certain day-to-day decisions that he does you of all people how many times if we driven somewhere, and you're like no I really should just turn right right here no you're supposed to turn left no I have to turn right, there are times where those day-to-day decisions are important there are times where they are not but I didn't even take it to mean that I took it to mean, God is concerned with us daily in providing for us and taking care of us and and guiding our day-to-day decisions to provide for us so I took it as a completely different question. When I read it. Pastor Bill: [40:05] I wonder if it's if this is included on their their key findings to see what they meant when they asked, it's 29 see if it's on the key findings because not everything is. Pastor Newms: [40:21] Yeah but that I find that very interesting that I you know we took it completely took the question not only you know our answers but the question itself completely. [40:42] And this is this goes back to something I love to complain about on every podcast almost it would actually be a fun game to see how many times I haven't complained about this not how many times I have which is English is a terrible language, human language cannot, articulate things well what one person means by something someone else can take completely different and in my line of work. Pastor Bill: [41:10] You need a whole paragraph to unto explain. Pastor Newms: [41:13] So for those of you out there who don't know what I do I'm a product manager for a software part of a company health care company and, the difference between the were certain words are hilarious because you will get into our long discussions on what does enrolled, engaged outreached active, these are four words that like mean completely different things to people which, two other people mean completely different things and it's funny I got into and I actually have there's one person out there that actually does listen to our podcast from my job and, the she sometimes does and, if she hears this she's going to laugh and she's gonna know exactly what day this was recorded on because she was in the meeting with me and we were like we don't know I mean which which are you talking about in this meeting like art write it down and go ask the business and that's what they that's what we have to do is then go figure it out you know what did they mean when they wrote this. Pastor Bill: [42:30] In the culture of your business what does this word mean. Pastor Newms: [42:35] Yeah and in your opinion at this moment what does this word mean because four different parts of the business even, like different markets they take the words to mean different things so that we actually have like a multi-page document that's like this is what this one means this is what this one means this is what this one means and in that document it's like for this group this word for this group this word for this group and that's what happens when you you run reporting. Pastor Bill: [43:07] I don't know so much about other languages but I know with English we're really bad about creating these little subcultures and then creating our own shorthand in these little subcultures, that then doesn't translate well to the other subcultures that other people have created, and so English just gets it keeps Schism and then it schisms again and then it's because I was again and then. Pastor Newms: [43:33] Well I think part of it comes down to it's such a amalgamation, I think it's the right word of so many other things the language we speak here in America is such a Melting Pot of other languages and dialects and parts and what is set in Texas versus Tennessee what is said you know New York versus Chicago don't even get me started on what a pie is or not you know there's some and it's true though I mean it's it's, it's terrible anguish was it part I was given I was trying to delay to give you time to look was it part of the findings that they listed okay number 30. Pastor Bill: [44:19] All right number 30 the Bible has the authority to tell us what we must do. Twenty-nine percent strongly agree as well as strongly disagree 23% somewhat agree, 14% somewhat disagree and 5% aren't sure so still another you know almost straight down the middle that the Bible has the authority to tell us what we must do so. The Bible has no authority to do anything, it cannot tell us what to do it cannot force us to do anything it cannot, exert any kind of authority over us it has no more control over anyone than what we give it as a person, for you to say the Bible has Authority is to take the Bible out of context. It's not how the Bible works and I've written down your thoughts pull my Bible out to read it first Thessalonians, five I think I misspelled this alone Ian's but that's okay put it on through 22 let me flip around here and get my Bible. Pastor Newms: [45:38] I can grab it for you first of the sidonians five. Pastor Bill: [45:43] Like to read out loud. Pastor Newms: [45:44] It's fine but that's the middle you picked a verse that starts with but are you sure. Pastor Bill: [45:50] Did I was just like I pulled it up for myself 181. Pastor Newms: [45:59] Can't start with a but homie. Pastor Bill: [46:03] Okay so we'll start in 20, don't despise prophecies but test all things hold on to what is good stay away from every kind of evil okay I remember why I did that so, there are people that say you know the Bible is the greatest Authority its authority over everything and you have to do what it says and then other people who use the exact same argument, to say oh well II can't use the whole Bible I can't trust the Bible and what it tells me to do as an authority because there are certain scriptures that don't I don't agree with morally like I don't agree with owning slaves, and God clearly tells the Israelites how to own slaves I don't agree with you know whatever pick your topic and there's probably somebody that doesn't agree with it you know what it says in the Bible about it, um and this verse basically says. [47:07] If it's good then then use it and if it's if it's not then don't it's not like, it's not like because you like Genesis 1:1 that you have to like Revelations 20 verse 1 you know what I mean like take hold of the good reject the bad, and and and move on with the you know the spirit and the the teachings of the Bible, and obviously there's only the one issue that you know, we had to breed Manifesto believe is the the Salvation issue the heart issue that you have to agree on to be a Christian and that's the you know the the Life of Christ and the death and the resurrection. [47:50] Um that's basically the definition of being a Christian and says on Twitch says do not make an idol of the Bible, absolutely do not make an idol of the Bible which can happen and has happened and is currently something that's happening, in the at least in the u.s. church in circles certain circles of the u.s. church that that this has been elevated to more than a message and into being, a holy Relic in an unto itself and there's nothing holy, about words on a page there's just not what's holy is the message behind the words, and and that message is what's written in our heart when we receive the Holy Spirit that's the part that's holy is the Holy Spirit, um not not a collection of words on paper. Pastor Newms: [48:56] So this is where we differ slightly in that. I've actually put agree on this one but only agree in part, because the verbage is terrible because the word must does not mean what. You know and so I actually pulled second Timothy 3:16 all scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching rebuking correcting and training in righteousness and. I think that one of the reasons why this is such an important, aspect is because whereas we don't disagree. We do not wholly agree and this is something that happens often with us because, semantics are very important to people who are not neurotypical and let's be honest how many people out there actually are and not just liars anyway. Pastor Bill: [50:06] There are so few neurotypicals left that you can't even call it typical anymore. Pastor Newms: [50:12] Anyway one of the things that, that is so important you know scripture is inspired by God and of course we've talked about what that inspired means it doesn't mean written by it means inspired, and it's possible its profitable for teaching rebuking correcting and training in righteousness, which is also what's important it is a. Pastor Bill: [50:46] Did you see that you've chosen a verse that is is only half a sentence. Pastor Newms: [50:51] It ends in a coma yeah. Pastor Bill: [50:53] 3:17 is the rest of the sentence so that the man of God maybe completely equipped completely equipped for every good work. Pastor Newms: [51:03] Right and that's that's actually I quit it righteousness because, that sums it up for me is it's specifically a religious, text it is not dictating how we should exist as a culture it's not, saying how we should exist politically it's not saying how we should exist in all of these other manners it's saying how we should exist, as a man of God in righteousness it's used. Pastor Bill: [51:34] Not talking about how people who aren't Believers should live, you can't stand on a street corner and say. I recognize that you're not a believer in Christ but you have to do what the Bible says that's not what the Bible is for. And on top of what you're saying. In 316 teaching rebuking correcting and training these are all things you have to submit to they don't inherently have authority over you you have to submit to them. Which is makestar to point of views cut you kind of marries are two point of view. Pastor Newms: [52:17] Yeah it definitely that's why I say that it's our differences are nuanced because 99% of the time our differences are nuanced usually just because one of us is more militant about a specific thing because of upbringing. Pastor Bill: [52:31] True it's so true. Pastor Newms: [52:32] You're more militant about this because of upbringing I'm more like, I'll hit you if you disagree with me that's fine all right 31, let's go for more for more we might actually finish in an hour. Pastor Bill: [52:53] Religious belief says disagrees with you I don't know what about you know the you can just lean over and ask him, religious belief, is a matter of personal opinion it is not about objective truth. [53:14] We've talked about it before there is only one objective truth. From the standpoint of Christianity I wholeheartedly believe there is only the one objective truth and everything else is left to opinion. Romans 10:9 I put it in the chat already, if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. [53:44] As a Christian I believe that is the only one objective truth everything else is opinion everything else, your definition of sin my definition of sin your definition of what you can either can't eat or their definition of what you can or can't do or that person's definition for you can or can't sleep well, who you can date who you can't date how you can do your hair can you get those implants can you get that chopped off can you, dress up and dragon and do a show that's all opinion it's all. All of the religious to stuff that gets spewed from podiums and platforms All Over America and all over the world week in and week out that goes beyond. This confession that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Everything beyond that is opinion. [54:49] Now I can't speak for Hindus I can't speak for Muslims I can't speak for Sheiks I can't speak for zoroastrians, because I'm not one of those I can speak for myself I can speak for Christianity and I can speak for the church because I'm a member of all of these things. And from that point is you there's only that one objective truth. And I believe that Jesus is the way to the father but I also think there's a lot of ways to find Jesus all right you tired. Pastor Newms: [55:25] So I wrote John 14:16 it was a perfect segue so thank you for just going ahead and throwing that out there and Jesus told him I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father except through me, it's the same there's only the confession and Jesus is the way as you mentioned. [55:45] You know there's other things but what I think is the biggest thing on here and you touched on it but didn't specifically say it so again this is one of those where, it's not on us to judge others belief systems and less they are harming themselves or others the question of, is one that is worded causes issues in my head, in my mind not my head because my head doesn't actually anyway I believe Christianity is the only way and Jesus is the truth but we cannot assault others, because of this belief and, you know you touched on it by saying I can't speak for all these other parties I can't you know but specifically there is no reason, we should be physically or verbally assaulting others, in that and I'm not saying anyone preaching is assaulting someone else that's not what I'm saying I know there's people who have said that not what I'm saying but if you're on a bus screaming at someone to go back to their own country or, that you don't like them because they are, which somehow this has become a thing again somehow in this quote-unquote Christian Nation we're back to bashing, Jews which makes no logical sense to me in any way shape form or idea on how that's possible but. Pastor Bill: [57:14] I checked Jesus wasn't you. Pastor Newms: [57:16] Yeah, but you've got these people that are that are saying all these vile things and getting banned for Twitter for it shout out to you out there you know who I'm talking about but. Doing that kind of stuff in the name of Jesus is not correct and we cannot. Do that one it's the opposite of Christianity Jesus was all about love and all about you know spreading, the message of love and spreading his message because God is love and he is got you know that whole thing healing people that didn't deserve it, you know forgiving the people who literally killed him let's not talk a bunch of. Let's not let's not, don't verbally assault people or physically assault people let's just go back to that I got on a soapbox and almost went too far just just. Pastor Bill: [58:28] Raymond you're ver Berea. Pastor Newms: [58:31] Just. Pastor Bill: [58:33] Stop doing it. Pastor Newms: [58:34] Don't do that y'all like don't be. Pastor Bill: [58:36] Those of you who don't know verb area is a combination of the words verbal and diarrhea that ver Berea eating all over people gross. Pastor Newms: [58:45] Number 32. Pastor Bill: [58:48] 32 this one's fun the Bible is the highest Authority for what I believe. [58:57] Thirty-eight percent of people wouldn't understand Peter his lifestyle and his choices 24% of people. Probably still wouldn't understand Peter 15% of people, they'd hang out with Peter and 23% of people would definitely be a Peter's homeboy, the Bible is a record of things that the Holy Spirit reveal to people in the past, the Holy Spirit can reveal things to you now therefore the holy spirit is the highest Authority, and when we got to the question of can the Holy Spirit tell me something did you something the Bible strictly forbids well yes, the by the Holy Spirit can tell you to do something that the Bible strictly forbids but it won't tell you to do something that violates the message and the spirit behind, what the Bible says right that's what we agreed upon. Pastor Newms: [59:56] Yeah. Pastor Bill: [59:58] Who know the Bible itself is not the highest Authority the holy spirit is, and if you're a Catholic then you believe that the pope is the highest Authority not the Bible and so it's it's this whole thing you know. I just I can't agree with this statement or the fact that it cuts the Holy Spirit out completely and once again makes more of an idol out of the Bible and less of an actual. Tool that it was intended to be limit makes it more of a logbook and less of a love letter. Pastor Newms: [1:00:36] So I wrote John 16:13 which is when the spirit of truth comes he will guide you in all Truth for he will not speak on his own but he will speak whatever he hears he will also declare to you what is to come so, very close to what you're saying I did put some would agree because I have for so long lived, the thought process in the lifestyle of this Spirit and the message behind the Bible not necessarily the verbatim but so for me it's like, somewhat I know what you mean and I disagree with what you said because I know what you meant by the question but I agree with that. Pastor Bill: [1:01:16] I know what they meant when they said the statement but I don't agree with what they mean. Pastor Newms: [1:01:21] Right and that's that's that whole thing where I agree with the, if I was making it or if you were making it because we both see it through that lens of the Holy Spirit guides, even our understanding of scriptures on a daily basis that's why that's why the that's why the Bible is called a living book it's not because, it's alive, it's because with the Holy Spirit you are shown things different every time you read it every time we look at it every time we touch it every time we you feel something different because of that relationship between the Holy Spirit who's the one who breathed it out two people he knows what it actually meant not what the person who wrote it then the person who translated it, the person who translated it who then translated it to give it to you meant by it looking at you, King James trying to change scriptures just leave that part out it's fine but it's in it's in the original and we don't need it in the remake. Pastor Bill: [1:02:38] Our did that are are we next has no need for. [1:02:51] All right 33. It is very important for me personally to encourage non-christians to trust Jesus Christ as their savior or we can reread it the way they meant it, it is very important for me to personally encouraged, encouraging quotations non-christians to trust in quotations Jesus Christ as their savior in quotations, so they mean standing on a street corner and yelling obscenities at centers, to try to get them to realize how pitiful they are and and come to repentance or like the guy who dressed up like the Grim Reaper and stood across the street from a high school as they were letting out, with a sign that talked about that will it quoted the scripture from Revelations of listing all the different types of people that are going to go to hell. [1:03:49] I agree it's it's it's important for me it's important for Christians to encourage non-christians to trust Jesus Christ I disagree on, how people have gone about achieving that endeavor. I believe it's all about relationship I believe what Jesus told us to do go out and make disciples, I believe it's about that it's not about standing on a street corner and and doing whatever, 32% of people strongly agree with the statement 24% somewhat agree 17% somewhat disagree and 27 percent strongly disagree and no one wasn't sure. Pastor Newms: [1:04:42] Yeah so for me, I put agree because I took the spirit of the question not the. How I take the question not how they possibly asked it but I put, um I'll be honest these last three I didn't put a scripture down because we've talked about them so much that I was like, just just go listen to other stuff like we've covered this so many times but I put the same thing that you put which is to make disciples the point isn't just, get people to trust Jesus because here's the problem trust in Jesus is not part of the verse that you quoted earlier. Trust isn't there you can trust that Jesus existed you can trust that Jesus came and died you can trust but if you do not believe and you do not put your faith in, you're not you're missing it trust and faith are two completely different things, again English is a terrible language so the questions hard but. [1:06:01] As a Christian I believe we should be spreading Christianity to make disciples as we were commanded, but we should do so through relationships and such and not just surround ourselves with people who, I agree with us 24/7 like I mean we've already talked about it but, right there he's right there and we don't agree on heart you know on a lot of stuff but let's be honest um, says who's in the same office as me for those of you out there who do not realize that is not a Christian, but knows more about the Bible than lots of people who are and humorously, has sat and fellowships with us in the past and people didn't realize he wasn't because he's respectful of other people and we're respectful of him and. [1:07:03] You know but that doesn't mean I'm going to sit there and shove it down his throat 24/7 because we're in the same room, did I hide everything Christian in my room when he moved in no of course not but, he wouldn't ask me to either so there's that you know mutual respect aspect that we have to have as a culture we have to quit yeah he knew he was moving in with a pastor he knew what was going on um. [1:07:33] We have to have that mutual respect as we're moving through it we shouldn't be, screaming at people that goes back to the what I was saying above about the verbally assaulting people don't do it just don't do it do it out of love, in a loving manner like I mean. Pastor Bill: [1:07:53] How do you verbally assault someone. Pastor Newms: [1:07:54] No no no I'm not saying don't Street preach you can Street preach in a loving manner. You can pull pit preach in a loving manner you can do all of those things in a loving manner, and I don't mean just I love him so I have to tell him no sit down you've missed the point please stop I mean, you can do it and show love you don't have to just spew hate. Pastor Bill: [1:08:26] Jesus loved Sinners and ate with them and drank with the to the point that the religious people were a little concerned that perhaps he was a sinner and a drunkard. Pastor Newms: [1:08:42] My Pastor Bill: [1:08:43] And possibly demon-possessed and he's like I'm just loving people. Pastor Newms: [1:08:49] My favorite is I'm I am someone who has skirted around the outsides of the religious circles for many many years I know this comes as a shock anyone out there who knows me but, so often I end up in places where people are screaming at everyone that's coming out or going into somewhere and it's always so, funny because there's always the person I'm with who's like do not do it don't go talk to that person it's not going to end well, they hit him don't go talk to him and every now and then if I'm by myself I get to and it's always funny because they're like, you're this and you're that you're like you don't know me first off homie second off, I'm dressing up in a cut my favorite my favorite time this ever happened was at Comic-Con someone yelling that everyone going into Comic Con was a sinner, and it was like dude we read comic books what do you think is happening in that convention center right now like this is not. Pastor Bill: [1:09:52] Nerdy stuff just nerdy stuff that's all it's gonna. Pastor Newms: [1:09:55] This is not a Roman Coliseum we're not killing people in their sacrificing them bathing in their blood and having orgies we're going to. Pastor Bill: [1:10:03] Is not a Roman orgy that's not what's going on. Pastor Newms: [1:10:04] Wrong type of Coliseum homie that was something that always that's the one that really made me go oh we got some stuff messed up, we're mess where we have messed up as a culture if this is what people think anyway. Pastor Bill: [1:10:31] 34 Pastor Newms: [1:10:32] 34 Pastor Bill: [1:10:35] Jesus Christ death on the cross is the only sacrifice that could remove the penalty of my sin, um forty-two percent strongly agree 22% somewhat agree 15% somewhat disagree and 21 percent strongly disagree I don't even know where to start with this, there's, okay if you want to know my opinion on this statement there's about three hundred ninety six episodes before this one that you can go listen to, it comes up pretty often so I'll just let you go listen to those again if you really want to know. Cuz man I feel like I've been beating my head on this topic, over and over and over and over and over again we're asking the wrong questions when it comes to sin we just really are we we just really are, don't understand it as a culture we don't understand it as a religion we don't understand what we're saying we're like children, running around playing game a cup game made up games, that don't make any sense to reality when it comes to the definitions of sin and and how we catalog it how we categorize and how we hold people to it and you, I can't even I can't even with this statement. Pastor Newms: [1:11:58] And we've talked about it even above a couple of times you know around this this manner of. Jesus death and sacrifice. It was about bringing us to the father nothing more nothing less and. You know there's so much connotation in so much of these questions that is just like you said I didn't put a verse down because again this one is like come on now like yes. What you mean and what you saying are two different things, I put agree because the only way to the Father which is what you're talking about but you're saying it in such an archaic and incorrect way, 35 last one here we go. Pastor Bill: [1:12:53] Only those who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their savior receive God's free gift of Eternal salvation so they're getting a little closer on their wording there, trust in Jesus Christ alone as their savior so that that pretty well Meats, that definition of confess Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart if you understand christianese, if you don't that was just gibberish, um anyway receive God's free gift of Eternal salvation I still have issue with this free gift statement in today's culture. Because it's a little confusing, it seems because to say it's a free gift that you have to then do something to get today's culture doesn't understand that but it's kind of like you know if someone's going to give you a Christmas present. You don't get the gift unless you reach out and take it like that's the belief is taking it that's that's. Pastor Newms: [1:14:03] You don't open the box it's just a box. Pastor Bill: [1:14:06] Yeah it Schroeder Schrodinger's Schrodinger's Christmas present. Pastor Newms: [1:14:08] There's a short in Yours Gift yeah. Pastor Bill: [1:14:10] Yeah sure did yours gift if you don't if you never open the box if you don't believe enough to open the box you'll never have the present salvations like that you know it's there for you all you have to do is believe in enough to open the box, if there it's yours you can have it it at all the issues have already been dealt with all the issues that. All that same issue stuff that people talk about that was dealt with, it's it's over that's not what's keeping you down and away from God anymore. That literally there was a veil put between man and God by Adam's sin and that sin nature was passed down that was dealt with. The only thing keeping you away from God now is belief and Trust. [1:15:16] To do to do to do beating a dead horse. [1:15:26] Damn just this I I hope they never come out with this again this was this was this was rough. Pastor Newms: [1:15:35] They will. Pastor Bill: [1:15:37] They proud they probably will I mean unless unless unless the Lord comes back and we have the whole Rapture thing that, most people don't even believe in anymore. Pastor Newms: [1:15:48] The Lord tarries. Pastor Bill: [1:15:50] Unless Lord terrorist well that was one of the thing the early church did is they would they would they would tack that onto almost everything they said I'll see you next Tuesday if the Lord tarries. Pastor Newms: [1:16:01] Well and and if I I used to when I was younger. And then I realized someone told me that it makes them feel terrified for my mental health and existence every time I would say see you next time unless one of us dies. Pastor Bill: [1:16:22] Oh man. Pastor Newms: [1:16:23] It was not a proper way to say goodbye to people so. Pastor Bill: [1:16:28] In the next 24 hours it may be the last yeah. Pastor Newms: [1:16:32] See you later unless you hit by a bus. Pastor Bill: [1:16:34] Read where was that. Pastor Newms: [1:16:35] People weren't comfortable with that so I stopped it in the business realm and then it just faded out for the rest of my life too but I really I used to be like I'll see you tomorrow unless one of us dies. Pastor Bill: [1:16:47] What was that. Pastor Newms: [1:16:48] You can't you can't you got to stop saying that you're scaring. Pastor Bill: [1:16:51] Say that to people. Pastor Newms: [1:16:53] They don't know whether you're going to kill them or yourself they're confused they're not happy with that phrasing change it so I did I just don't say. Pastor Bill: [1:17:00] You're not creating a safe space. Pastor Newms: [1:17:04] I think it every time I say goodbye to someone just in case like see you next time so if I ever tell you if I ever say to you see you next time talk to you later just know in my head I added unless you die. Pastor Bill: [1:17:19] Let you die sucker. Pastor Newms: [1:17:23] And on that note how does Pastor Bill end every podcast. Pastor Bill: [1:17:32] Oh man. Pastor Newms: [1:17:33] Just because I don't think Pastor Bill even knew that that was something I used to do I think that was gone out of my vocabulary before I met him, that was like a high school thing. Pastor Bill: [1:17:46] Only imagine you calling youth pastors to do hbf and you're like I'll talk to you next Tuesday unless we die first click. [1:18:09] This podcast comes out every Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Central Standard Time and we usually recorded on Sundays at 6:30 p and you can go to our website at www.esa.int house to find out which twitch which YouTube in which Facebook hopefully that Trend continues that we go live on unless restream decides to crap out and like you did today and when we had to just just do twitch, so you can join us on those Sunday night and have a great time in the chat and we'll acknowledge you and when you're typing into the chat like we've done tonight with says and bigs and zany, it's a lot of fun we'd love to have you be a part of the conversation because we believe that church is more about community and less about will lecture that's why we have this style where we like to do it where we're talking back and forth and we you know let people speak into the conversation because it should be more about community and less about a lecture hall experience where you're hurt it in like Catalan heard it back out if that's your cup of tea and you enjoy that cool enjoy that but finds yourself a community, of Believers to plug into two or three people 5 people 10 people find someone somewhere to plug in what did you miss you miss eating, oh yeah we said yeah we should have a meal when we did this.

All of this is about love nothing you guys and I hope you do have a great. And that's where pastor newms says don't die out there.

Pastor Bill: [1:21:32] Hey Mike. Pastor Newms: [1:21:33] That's why I say be safe. Pastor Bill: [1:21:36] And I don't think we need a 30-second buffer for Choice do we. Pastor Newms: [1:21:39] No we're going straight to Twitch we need no buffer but we still have to sing the song no we can't not sing the song cuz I can't if I end the episode without singing.

Like most good ideas, the idea for Hoxby, the purpose-led organisation that exists to create a happier, more fulfilled society through a world of work without bias, came to co-founders Alex Hirst and Lizzie Penny, in the pub. Fed up with, and burned out from the traditional way of working, they decided it simply wasn't what they wanted. So they decided to take matters into their own hands. Fast forward a decade and Alex and Lizzie not only changed the way they work, but they've also changed the way their community works too. A community made up of more than 1,000 handpicked, talented and diverse freelancers who work remotely in 30 countries around the world. Alex and Lizzie have recently published a book, Workstyle, about how workstyle is better for wellbeing, improves productivity, and can reshape inclusion for the benefit of society. And in this episode of The Melting Pot, they share why they're so passionate about autonomy at work, what Hoxby is, the conditions necessary to foster workstyle, and how to create connections remotely.

Few people today would think of Singapore as being a religious center, still less a Muslim one. But even before it began its great commercial climb in modern times, the city was already linked to the spiritual and mercantile networks of Indian Ocean Islam. Then, from nineteenth century, Singapore played host to as varied a spectrum of Asian Muslims as might be imagined, whether Yemeni Sufis and merchants, Indian laborers and missionaries, or publishers and miracle workers from across Southeast Asia. From Arabic to Tamil and Malay, these migrants brought along their own traditions and languages, which melded into the many rich expressions of ‘Singapore Islam.' Nile Green talks to Teren Sevea, author of Miracles and Material Life: Rice, Ore, Traps and Guns in Islamic Malaya (Cambridge University Press, 2020), which won the Harry J. Benda Prize of the Association for Asian Studies.
Today's episode features Rett Larson. Rett is a physical preparation coach with an extensive and diverse background. He has worked internationally with the national volleyball teams of Germany, Netherlands and China. Rett has also worked with professionals, down to athletes of all ages, having prior experience as Velocity Sports Performance's director of coaching in California. Rett is a student of movement, having studied not only the top minds in sports performance, but also in general movement training such as taught by Ido Portal and in the scope of physical education. The evolution of sport is one of integration, and not separation. Currently, the “silos” of sport coaching and then all of the “supportive” services (such as S&C) don't tend to have much interaction with each other beyond a conversation. The fact of the matter is, that when an athlete hits the field (or court) of play, they are operating within all facets of their humanity. Their physical, tactical, technical, emotional, social and deep psychology all impacts their performance on the field. The ”sport-warmup” may be the one place, in all of an athlete's training, where the maximal amount of silos can be integrated. Athletes can use strength, physio, games and sport-constraint oriented methods to not only prepare them for practice in an enjoyable way, but also form a “melting pot” of all aspects that make an athlete. On the show today, Rett Larson takes us through his evolution as a coach, and how his warmups and training has evolved over time. He covers the highest transferring abilities he sees from the gym and warmup sessions, that are embodied by the best players on the team. Rett also covers the important interaction that must take place between the physical preparation coach and sport coach, to create buy-in, and move the warmup process forward. After listening to Rett speak on his approach to training athletes, it's hard to think differently about our own process towards the evolution of our athletes and training programs.

Did you know that the 80:20 principle also works in reverse? Whilst 80% of your output will come from 20% of your people, the same is true of your problems. Meaning 80% of the errors will be caused by 20% of your people. But, says Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Organisational Psychologist, currently Chief Innovation Officer at ManpowerGroup, companies spend way more time on development than they do on talent acquisition. So, what can you do about that? Well, don't miss Tomas on this episode of The Melting Pot explaining how technology is revolutionising the recruitment role, why assessing candidates is a costly mistake, the difference between genders in terms of curiosity, why the world is so full of rubbish leaders, and how we can bring about change in leadership.

This episode is not at all what we intended to cover, but the storied past that is The Cecil Hotel sucked us into a vortex that was inescapable, and so we bring you a quite convoluted ride along through the catacombs of everything from urban legends loosely bond to this hotel, to the agonizing death toll it has racked up. This is just a very brief look at the hotel as a whole and all the stories it has produced. We touch on the history of Skid Row and the epidemic of the unhomed in Los Angeles, the Cecil in its prime and its fall from grace in present day, alleged hauntings, serial killers, and of course, the arm chair detective theories. It would not be a complete story without including a lose thread tying speculatively to what we originally intended to cover, urban legends. Either unknowingly creating some or conspiring commonalities to old tales, The Cecil hotel is without a doubt a melting pot for all of these thoughts.

On this Indigenous People's Day, we review an unfortunate streak of outright racist comments from those who believe there are enough voters and a right-wing media infrastructure to shield them from their attacks on people as well as American democracy. Perhaps we need a new analogy to help people embrace our differences.

Acomi and Turk182 realize why some prayers go unanswered. Sometimes God can't answer your prayers. But, Satan can! And, that must be how we ended up with the long awaited and severly underwhelming and disjointed Heavy Metal 2000 (2000) also known as Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K.2. Based on the Melting Pot graphic novel by Simon Bisley, Kevin Eastman, and Eric Talbot the movie stars Julie Strain, in both voice and likeness, as the heroine... Julie. Making a loose connection to the original film, with a mysterious glowing meteorite being the underlying antagonist, the main villain travels the cosmos in search of a lost alien race that can make him immortal. With Julie's home world being the first stop on the Self Indulgence Mass Destruction intergalactic tour - Coming to planet near you! - she embarks on a reckless journey of revenge. Lackluster animation devoid of detail and shading, combined with emerging CGI rendered graphics make watching the movie as disjointed as watching a black & white movie with old school red & blue 3D glasses. Like the first movie HM 2K has an amazing hard rock soundtrack, but the songs don't fit the scenes they're in. Join Acomi and Turk as they try to convince each other to not open the airlock and embrace the cold death of space instead of watching anymore of Heavy Metal 2000. On the plus side there are a multitude of pictures online of the amazon goddess Julie Strain dressed as her HM 2K character. Complete with badass weapon. Acomi and Turk182, along the occasional special guest, provide running commentary of awfulsome movie and TV shows. The hosts select movies that either one, or both, have never seen. All jokes and comments are improvised. NO PREPARED JOKES OR COMMENTS! During recording, the movies are watched at a low volume and with the subtitles on. Viewers may want to turn subtitles on as well to enhance the viewing experience. So, cue up the audio, ready the movie, and hit play when we say so. Note: This video is the commentary recorded by Acomi and Turk182, and selected screenshots. It is NOT a viewable copy of the film. The commentary can be enjoyed on its own, but if you want to experience the Let's Watch in all its glory, you'll need your own copy of the movie.

Until recently, School District 28 in Queens, N.Y., was characterized by a white Northside, and a Black Southside. But today, the district, and Queens at large, has become what is considered to be one of the most diverse places on the planet. So how did District 28 go from being defined by this racial binary, to a place where people brag about how diverse it is?
