Il cacciatore di libri
"Tasmania" di Paolo Giordano e "Il serpente e il faraone" di Marco Buticchi

Il cacciatore di libri

"Tasmania" diPaolo Giordano (Einaudi) è un romanzo che narra di crisi: crisi personale, crisi di coppia, crisi climatica. Narra anche di traumi collettivi passati, come le bombe atomiche di Hiroshima e Nagasaki, e di traumi collettivi più recenti, come gli attentati terroristici in Europa nel 2015 a Parigi, Berlino, Londra. Tutti elementi che creano nel protagonista, che è anche voce narrante, un certo disorientamento. Il narratore viene chiamato semplicemente P.G., è un uomo fra i 35 e i 40 anni, laureato in fisica, fa lo scrittore e scrive sui giornali. Insomma il ritratto dello stesso Paolo Giordano che per la prima volta "gioca" con l'autofiction. Nella seconda parte parliamo di un romanzo d'avventura che mescola fatti storici e finzione: si intitola "Il serpente e il faraone" di Marco Buticchi (Longanesi). Come sempre nei romanzi di Buticchi ci sono due piani temporali. In questo caso siamo intorno al 1300 a.C. nell'Antico Egitto quando il faraone Akhenaton cresce insieme a Mosè, un ebreo che è stato accolto dalla famiglia reale. Akhenaton è osteggiato della popolazione perché ha imposto il culto di un solo dio. A lui succederà il figlio Tutankhamon. Poi ci troviamo in un altro piano temporale: 1923, scoperta della tomba di Tutankhamon. Da qui sarebbero stati sottratti alcuni papiri che conterrebbero delle informazioni molto preziose sull'identità di Mosè e l'origine delle religioni.

Jordan Kahn, CIO at ACM Funds, talks about how to use hedging to dial in the right amount of exposure for a portfolio. Strategies include shorting index and sector ETFs for the portfolio and using option strategies for individual stocks. The hedging helps weather volatility to achieve long-term capital gains. He demonstrates the strategies with a discussion of recent market action and stocks like Quanta Services (PWR), Vertex (VRTX) and Mosaic (MOS). For the video version, visit investors.com/podcast.

Secrets to Long-Term Staff — with Giancarlo Zuliani, MD (Ep.179)

Hello, and welcome to Beauty and the Biz where we talk about the business and marketing side of plastic surgery and secrets to long-term staff. I'm your host, Catherine Maley, author of Your Aesthetic Practice – What your patients are saying, as well as consultant to plastic surgeons, to get them more patients and more profits. Now, today's episode is called "Secrets to Long-Term Staff — with Giancarlo Zuliani, MD." Some surgeons look at staff as an overhead expense that must be “dealt with” to run their practice. They wish they could forgo staff altogether and skip the hassle of hiring, training and managing people. They have had enough of bad hires who: come in late, leave early and do mediocre work in between. They can't understand why staff can't just do the job they are getting paid to do. What's the big deal? It can't be that hard and so on…. Other surgeons think much differently about staff. They know they can't do it alone and good staff can make them look good and make their life easier. They like working with staff who have their back, who support them and who move the practice forward. They see staff as their practice secret weapon who is an asset to their success. Dr. Giancarlo Zuliani is of this later mindset. In this week's Beauty and the Biz Podcast, I interviewed Dr. Giancarlo Zuliani. He is a facial plastic surgeon in private practice in Bloomfield Hills, MI and focuses on rejuvenating, restoring and reconstructing the face through surgical and non-surgical procedures. We talked about how he finds good staff (even with today's staffing challenges) and keeps them engaged for the long run. Also, how they help him grow the practice using their own unique talents. His attitude about staff being as asset has paid off, to the point where he is busy and now looking for more space. His approach is refreshing (and he has run with the bulls!)

Ric writes “I am a 22-year Army Veteran. It was the greatest joy in my life being a soldier next to being a father of two. At that time, my MOS was 11B (Infantry) and my specialty was Infantry Scout. I attended One Station Unit Training (OSUT) at Ft Benning, GA, where I was taught the skills necessary to be an effective scout. I did deploy to Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Bosnia, Kosovo, OEF, and OIF. In my heart, I know I served with integrity and honor.

Una delle maniere più potenti che abbiamo come credenti per testimoniare Cristo al mondo è il riunirsi; non visitando un edificio una volta alla settimana, ma essendo coinvolti gli uni con gli altri. Sia che ci troviamo in una grande chiesa sia in una piccola comunità, il risultato sarà quello di mostrare la gioia della salvezza al mondo.---Predicatrice: Jean GuestCLICCA SUL TITOLO PER ASCOLTARE IL MESSAGGIOTempo di lettura: 8 minutiTempo di ascolto audio/visione video: 30 minutiQuando le guerre erano basate più sul corpo a corpo che sulla tecnologia a distanza, era difficile sapere in mezzo al caos dove si trovasse il proprio schieramento; così si usava esporre uno stendardo, o una bandiera, per segnalare "qui è dove si trova la tua gente, qui è dove ci stiamo radunando". Era anche il luogo in cui si trovava il comandante e da lì partivano gli ordini. C'è un esempio di questo nell'Esodo...“E Mosè disse a Giosuè: «Scegli per noi alcuni uomini ed esci a combattere contro Amalec; domani io starò sulla vetta del colle con il bastone di Dio in mano».  Giosuè fece come Mosè gli aveva detto e combatté contro Amalec; e Mosè, Aaronne e Cur salirono sulla vetta del colle.  E quando Mosè teneva le mani alzate, Israele vinceva; e quando le abbassava, vinceva Amalec.  Ma le mani di Mosè si facevano pesanti. Allora essi presero una pietra, gliela posero sotto ed egli si sedette; Aaronne e Cur gli tenevano le mani alzate, uno da una parte e l'altro dall'altra. Così le sue mani rimasero ferme fino al tramonto del sole.  E Giosuè sconfisse Amalec e la sua gente passandoli a fil di spada.” (Esodo 17:9-13)Lo stendardo qui era il bastone sorretto da Mosè. È lo stesso bastone a cui si riferisce Gesù in Giovanni 3: “E come Mosè innalzò il serpente nel deserto, così bisogna che il Figlio dell'uomo sia innalzato,  affinché chiunque crede in lui [non perisca, ma] abbia vita eterna.” (Giovanni 3:14-15)In Giovanni 12 dice anche questo“...e io, quando sarò innalzato dalla terra, attirerò tutti a me...” (Giovanni 12:32)Gesù si riferisce chiaramente alla sua morte sulla croce, ma ci sono implicazioni per noi come Chiesa. In che modo Gesù viene innalzato oggi? In che modo le persone vengono attirate a Lui nel 2022? Succede quando ricordiamo che siamo i suoi portabandiera riuniti per far conoscere la sua presenza e tenere alto il suo vessillo d'amore. Come dice Tyler Staton, pastore della chiesa di Bridgetown:  "Il compito della chiesa non è comprovare la narrazione biblica, ma incarnarla in modo tale che le persone sappiano senza alcun dubbio che questa è la dimora di Dio".Quindi la prima cosa che siamo come popolo riunito di Dio è un indicatore della sua presenza viva nel mondo.La seconda cosa che siamo secondo Gesù è questa...“E insegnava, dicendo loro: «Non è scritto: “La mia casa sarà chiamata casa di preghiera per tutte le genti”?».” (Marco 11:17 a)Gesù sta citando Isaia 56:7 ed è nel contesto in cui sgombera il tempio dagli usurai e da coloro che traggono profitto dalla vendita delle offerte sacrificali; dice che hanno trasformato il tempio in un "covo di ladri". Stanno rubando ai fedeli e a Dio perché hanno eretto delle false barriere: solo chi ha abbastanza denaro può permettersi di entrare, mettendo Dio fuori dalla portata della maggior parte delle persone.  Guardate cosa succede subito dopo:“E disse loro: «È scritto: “La mia casa sarà chiamata casa di preghiera”, ma voi ne fate un covo di ladri». Allora vennero a lui, nel tempio, dei ciechi e degli zoppi, ed egli li guarì.” (Matteo 21:13-14)Coloro che erano rimasti fuori hanno improvvisamente accesso alla presenza di Dio, sono accolti e guariti.L'idea che il tempio sia una casa di preghiera ad accesso libero può essere fatta risalire al momento in cui Davide prese finalmente il suo posto di re. Davide aveva trascorso sette anni dopo l'unzione da parte di Samuele, impedito di occupare il posto che gli spettava sul trono; si potrebbe pensare che in tutti questi sette anni avrebbe pianificato un'incoronazione fantasmagorica. Ma questo è ciò che accadde.“Davide era cinto di un efod di lino e danzava a tutta forza davanti al Signore.  Così Davide e tutta la casa d'Israele trasportarono su l'arca del Signore con gioia e a suon di tromba, Portarono dunque l'arca del Signore e la collocarono al suo posto, in mezzo alla tenda che Davide le aveva montato; e Davide offrì olocausti e sacrifici di riconoscenza davanti al Signore.  Quando ebbe finito di offrire gli olocausti e i sacrifici di riconoscenza, Davide benedisse il popolo nel nome del Signore degli eserciti  e distribuì a tutto il popolo, a tutta la moltitudine d'Israele, uomini e donne, un pane per uno, una porzione di carne e un grappolo di uva passa. Poi tutto il popolo se ne andò, ciascuno a casa sua.” (2 Samuele 6:14-15, 17-19)Davide non è al centro dell'attenzione, entra come sacerdote e non come re; al centro dell'attenzione c'è l'arca del Signore. Davide aveva recuperato l'arca da dove Saul l'aveva abbandonata e stava riportando la rappresentazione fisica della presenza di Dio nel cuore della comunità. La colloca in una tenda (o tabernacolo) a cui tutto il popolo ha accesso e da cui benedice tutto il popolo. Per citare ancora Tyler Staton: "Quando diamo priorità alla preghiera e all'adorazione nella chiesa, si ottiene il Regno nella città e la gente viene benedetta".Essere chiesa riguarda il modo in cui viviamo e il modo in cui preghiamo. La Chiesa primitiva lo sapeva.I credenti formano una comunità“Ed erano perseveranti nell'ascoltare l'insegnamento degli apostoli e nella comunione fraterna, nel rompere il pane e nelle preghiere. Ognuno era preso da timore; e molti prodigi e segni erano fatti dagli apostoli.  Tutti quelli che credevano stavano insieme e avevano ogni cosa in comune;  vendevano le proprietà e i beni e li distribuivano a tutti, secondo il bisogno di ciascuno.  E ogni giorno andavano assidui e concordi al tempio, rompevano il pane nelle case e prendevano il loro cibo insieme, con gioia e semplicità di cuore,  lodando Dio e godendo il favore di tutto il popolo. Il Signore aggiungeva al loro numero ogni giorno quelli che venivano salvati.” (Atti 2:42-47)Vediamo cosa possiamo imparare, ma prima di farlo, notate il titolo I credenti formano una comunità. La nostra salvezza è personale, ma il modo in cui viene vissuta è in comunità, non visitando un edificio una volta alla settimana, ma essendo coinvolti gli uni con gli altri.La parola "perseveranti" significa "continuamente saldi".   Significa abbracciare completamente qualcosa, essere immersi in qualcosa, essere totalmente fedeli.  La fedeltà è dura, è una fatica, richiede lavoro e intenzionalità. Si sa che i maratoneti di solito si allenano in gruppo perché è più facile continuare a percorrere la lunga distanza quando ci sono altri che ti incoraggiano. Gesù ha detto "rimanete in me", in altre parole, "rimanete fedeli" e questo è più facile da fare nella comunità dei credenti.Notate le cose a cui si dedicavano: l'insegnamento/apprendimento, la comunione fraterna, il mangiare insieme e la preghiera - non necessariamente attività di gruppo, ma più facili da praticare se praticate in compagnia.  Questo mi porta alla prossima frase evidenziata: la condivisione.Nel brano è menzionata più di una volta. I credenti condividevano i pasti, il tempo, i beni, il denaro. Ciò significava che nessuno rimaneva senza, nessuno rimaneva con un bisogno non soddisfatto, nessuno si sentiva solo. Voglio dare un contesto a questo particolare modo di condividere. All'improvviso c'era un gran numero di visitatori stranieri che erano diventati credenti - probabilmente non avevano avuto nessuna intenzione di rimanere a Gerusalemme più di qualche giorno, ma erano qui e avevano bisogno di cose basilari.Ora, non lo dico per creare una giustificazione, "allora era così, oggi è cosà", ma per dimostrare che la chiesa era flessibile, adattabile e rispondeva ai bisogni immediati delle persone intorno a loro (tenete a mente questo pensiero per la terza parte di questa serie). È una reazione che è caratteristica di quella "generosità gioiosa" che Paolo dice essere il modo in cui la chiesa dovrebbe essere in 2 Corinzi 9. Sia che ci troviamo in una grande chiesa continuamente inondata di nuovi convertiti, sia che ci presentiamo fedelmente per incontrare solo alcuni, il risultato sarà lo stesso: condividere chi siamo e ciò che abbiamo con generosità produrrà gioia, (vedi Atti 2:46 “prendevano il loro cibo insieme, con gioia”).E adoravano. Notate che continuano a frequentare il tempio ogni giorno: è qui che andavano a pregare ed è probabilmente il modo in cui potevano riunirsi in un gruppo numeroso (chi ha spazio per 3000 persone nella propria casa)? Ma si riunivano anche nelle case per condividere la Cena del Signore. Al centro del loro culto c'era l'Eucaristia, la Cena del Signore, la Messa, la Comunione, in qualsiasi modo vogliamo chiamarla oggi nelle nostre tradizioni; lo scopo di celebrarla non è cambiato in 2000 anni. "Nel pane e nel vino dell'Eucaristia il passato e il futuro si incontrano nel presente. Attraverso l'Eucaristia veniamo rafforzati dalla presenza e dalla vita di Gesù, non solo per sconfiggere il male nella nostra vita, ma anche per far risplendere la luce di Dio nel mondo. ... abbiamo bisogno che la sua vita trasformante sia la nostra vita per trasformarci per la sua missione nel mondo."  N.T. WrightE come dice Paolo in 1 Corinzi 10:17, parla della nostra unità in lui: “Siccome vi è un unico pane, noi, che siamo molti, siamo un corpo unico, perché partecipiamo tutti a quell'unico pane.” (1 Corinzi 10:17)Torniamo al capitolo 2 di Atti:“E ogni giorno andavano assidui e concordi al tempio, rompevano il pane nelle case e prendevano il loro cibo insieme, con gioia e semplicità di cuore,  lodando Dio.” (Atti 2:46-47 a)C'era sia un luogo di culto formale che uno informale - notate "lodando Dio" (si parla di "mentre andate per i vostri affari quotidiani, lodatelo"). Trovo davvero interessante che Paolo, nel bel mezzo di un lunghissimo elenco di ciò che sembra essere la vita giusta, e ciò che certamente non dovrebbe esserla, inserisca questa piccola frase:“...parlandovi con salmi, inni e cantici spirituali, cantando e salmeggiando con il vostro cuore al Signore...” (Efesini 5:19)Nel suo senso più elementare, l'adorazione è praticare la presenza di Dio; se lo facciamo, i nostri cuori, i nostri occhi e le nostre motivazioni hanno maggiori possibilità di rimanere fedeli e santi. L'adorazione mette sia Dio che noi al nostro giusto posto.“… lodando Dio e godendo il favore di tutto il popolo. Il Signore aggiungeva al loro numero ogni giorno quelli che venivano salvati.” (Atti 2:47)Inoltre, ci indirizza verso la missione; l'adorazione è un ricevere e un dare, un ritmo di vita del regno di Dio che viene. “Liberamente riceviamo, liberamente diamo” suggerisce Gesù. Non è una coincidenza o un caso che la chiesa primitiva, grazie alla sua adorazione e generosità verso la missione, si sia arricchita ogni giorno di credenti nuovi. Ed è qui che ci dirigeremo la prossima volta.Amen.GUARDA LE DIAPOSITIVE DEL MESSAGGIOGUARDA IL MESSAGGIO IN BASSA RISOLUZIONE SU FACEBOOKGUARDA IL MESSAGGIO IN BASSA RISOLUZIONE SU INSTAGRAM---GUARDA IL VIDEO DEL MESSAGGIO IN HD

Cosa fa " amore”? Cosa lo crea? Cosa lo dimostra? Quali sono le condizioni che rendono possibile l'amore? E, soprattutto,  dove troviamo un modello a cui ispirarci? Tutto ruota attorno al nuovo comandamento di Gesù: "Amatevi gli uni gli altri".---CLICCA SUL TITOLO PER ASCOLTARE IL MESSAGGIOTempo di lettura: 7 minuti Tempo di ascolto audio/visione video: 24 minutiDue settimane fa abbiamo parlato di che cos'è l'amore leggendo 1 Corinzi 13:4-7, ed abbiamo terminato dicendo, se vi ricordate,  che l'amore è FARE.Che cos' è allora che “fa amore”? Nel senso di cosa lo crea? Cosa lo dimostra? Quali sono le condizioni che rendono possibile l'amore? E, soprattutto,  dove troviamo un modello a cui ispirarci?Cosa fa "amore"?Leggiamo assieme l'ultimo insegnamento di Gesù, quello fatto a poche ore dalla crocifissione, nella sala dell'ultima cena, quando già Giuda era uscito per andarlo a tradire:"Questo è il mio comandamento: che vi amiate gli uni gli altri, come io ho amato voi.   Nessuno ha amore più grande di quello di dar la sua vita per i suoi amici.   Voi siete miei amici, se fate le cose che io vi comando.   Io non vi chiamo più servi, perché il servo non sa quello che fa il suo signore; ma vi ho chiamati amici, perché vi ho fatto conoscere tutte le cose che ho udite dal Padre mio.   Non siete voi che avete scelto me, ma sono io che ho scelto voi, e vi ho costituiti perché andiate e portiate frutto e il vostro frutto rimanga; affinché tutto quello che chiederete al Padre, nel mio nome, egli ve lo dia.  Questo vi comando: che vi amiate gli uni gli altri. (Giovanni 15:12-17)Pensa di essere un membro della protezione civile chiamato per una missione pericolosissima di salvare qualcuno prigioniero in una grotta sottoterra e invasa dall'acqua:  una missione da cui potresti non tornare vivo, o viva. Sei sulla porta di casa, e dai un ultimo abbraccio alle persone che ami: il tuo sposo, la tua sposa, i tuoi figli... Cosa gli dici?Non penso che gli dici di ricordarsi ad annaffiare il limone, o a dare il cibo al gatto... Probabilmente cerchi di dargli le ultime istruzioni affinché capiscano che li ami... e che li spingano ad amare a loro volta... anche se non ci sarai più.Gesù sta parlando per l'ultima volta ai suoi:  è l'ultimo insegnamento prima della Croce. Ed userà nei capitoli da 12 a 17 la parola “amore” 31 volte.Gesù dice: “l'amore è la cosa più importante.” Perché è importante l'amore?Un  nuovo comandamento e sette  modi per obbedireIl ComandamentoQuesto è il mio comandamento: che vi amiate gli uni gli altri, come io ho amato voi.  (Giovanni 15: 12)Gesù usa la parola ἐντολή entolē, comandamento per la prima volta non per illustrare uno di quelli del Padre, uno di quelli scritti sulle Tavole portate da Mosè giù dal Sinai e non sta citando un comandamento contenuto nella Legge.Gesù aveva sempre insegnato, mai “comandato”; per la prima volta lo fa... parlando di amore! Ne parla, e lo sottolinea in rosso: "Questo è il mio comandamento."I discepoli sapevano che, per fare la volontà di Dio ogni comandamento andava eseguito, senza discutere, senza trovare alternative; obbedire, pena essere impuro e lontano da Dio.I comandamenti erano scritti su tavole di pietra  venivano conservati nell'arca del patto erano posti al centro del tempio.Che fine ha fatto il Tempio di Dio? Distrutto dall'imperatore Tito nel 70 D.C. Non serviva più, era solo un pezzo di archeologia; perché, dal giorno di Pentecoste, il Tempio era divenuto qualcosa di vivo, di mobile, di ovunque... Io e te!Eccolo il luogo dove conservare quel comandamento, eccolo il mezzo con cui obbedire a quel comandamento; porlo all'interno del tempio che ciascun credente rappresenta. Come?Sette modi per obbedireI. Metti l'altro per primoNessuno ha amore più grande di quello di dar la sua vita per i suoi amici. (v. 13)Vi ricordate cosa aveva detto Gesù  proprio all'ingresso della sala dell'ultima cena quando aveva lavato i piedi agli apostoli?“Infatti vi ho dato un esempio, affinché anche voi facciate come vi ho fatto io.” (Giovanni 13:15)E l'esempio è: “Se vuoi amare devi dare la tua vita agli altri”. Tu vieni dopo; l'altro viene prima. E questo è l'esatto opposto della cultura di tutto il modo.Se Paolo aveva detto che “L'amore  è benevolo … {l'amore} non si vanta, non si gonfia,  non cerca il proprio interesse, sopporta ogni cosa",  Gesù dice che è “dare la vita”.Se stai pensando “Allora dobbiamo allora morire anche noi?” ti rispondo con una domanda (come avrebbe fatto Gesù): perché moriva Gesù? Per venirci in aiuto, servirci. Dare la vita per noi significa venire in aiuto dell'altro, servirlo.II. Servi l'altroVoi siete miei amici, se fate le cose che io vi comando.  (v. 14)Quando hai conosciuto Gesù, eri suo amico? Facevi quello che ti comandava di fare? Eri “amabile”? Domanda retorica: Gesù ci ha amati per primo, quando non eravamo amabili. E' un esempio. Io devo fare lo stesso: io devo amare gli altri per primo, senza attendere che si facciano amare.III. Scegli di amareIo non vi chiamo più servi, perché il servo non sa quello che fa il suo signore (v. 15 a)Gesù non ti chiede di obbedire,  come farebbe un servo ma di scegliere di obbedire. Non devi amare per “obbligo”, ma per amore del tuo amico Gesù, che ti ha amato per primo, dandoti l'esempio da seguire.IV. Agisci con gioiama vi ho chiamati amici, perché vi ho fatto conoscere tutte le cose che ho udite dal Padre mio (v.  15 b)Un amico non fa le cose “per obbligo”, ma con gioia, un amico ascolta e comprende prima di agire. E se stai ascoltando le “istruzioni”di Gesù esse sono le stesse di nostro Padre; e questo ti porta a d agire con gioia, perché stai obbedendo a colui che ti ama più di ogni altro.V. Comprendi che non è merito tuoNon siete voi che avete scelto me, ma sono io che ho scelto voi (v. 16 a)Se sei capace di amare, mettendo l'altro per primo, servendo con gioia ricorda che non è nulla di cui tu ti possa vantare. Sei stato, sei stata scelta. E non per quanto eri bravo, brava o buono, buona, o religioso, religiosa, ma per quanto lui ti ama.Ah, attento, attenta, perché non sei “predestinato/predestinata”: Gesù “sceglie” ma sta a te comportarti da “amico” da “amica”  di Gesù”VI. Porta fruttoe vi ho costituiti perché andiate e portiate frutto e il vostro frutto rimanga (v. 16 b)Abbiamo già detto che non sei stato scelto o scelta perché eri  la migliore scelta e nemmeno perché eri indispensabile.Il fine del perché sei stato scelto, sei stata scelta, è perché tu “porti frutto”; non temporaneo, non stagionale, ma frutto “perenne”.In che modo? Testimoniando dell'amore che ti ha amato portando altri come te a conoscere Cristo, portando altri alla salvezza, ed amando gli altri come Gesù ti ha amato.VII. Non dubitare dell'amore di Dioaffinché tutto quello che chiederete al Padre, nel mio nome, egli ve lo dia (v. 16 c)Se rispondi all'amore con l'amore il risultato di tutto ciò il servire,  l'ascoltare il Padre, il portare altri alla salvezza,  avrai un rapporto intimo con mio Padre; e quando hai un rapporto con un padre cha ti ama quel padre farà di tutto per vederti felice e realizzato.Non farti venire in testa però che basti fare del bene per avere un simile rapporto col Padre: non puoi passare nella “stanza del Padre”  se prima non sei passato per la “porta Gesù”:“Io sono la via, la verità e la vita; nessuno viene al Padre se non per mezzo di me.” (Giovanni 14:6)L'amore è il traguardo : Gesù è la via“Gesù è paziente, è benevolo; Gesù non invidia; Gesù non si vanta, non si gonfia,  non si comporta in modo sconveniente, non cerca il proprio interesse, non s'inasprisce, non addebita il male, non gode dell'ingiustizia, ma gioisce con la verità;  soffre ogni cosa, crede ogni cosa, spera ogni cosa, sopporta ogni cosa.” Gesù è il modello dell'amore, ha avuto pazienza e benevolenza con ciascuno di noi, senza vantarsi o gonfiarsi di essere il Figlio di Dio senza cercare il proprio interesse, ma è disceso per cercare il mio e il tuo. Gesù non diventa aspro quando sbagliamo, ed è sceso perché sa che, dentro di noi, c'è una parte capace di fare il bene. Gesù è al nostro fianco quando ci trattano ingiustamente, e salta assieme a noi quando la verità vince.Gesù ha sofferto ogni cosa, peccati passati, presenti e futuri, sulla croce. Gesù ha creduto che ci fosse una soluzione alla morte, morendo sulla croce. Gesù spera che ciascuno raggiunga il Padre  attraverso la sua croce. Gesù ha sopportato la croce, perché lui è amore!E la cosa che gli preme maggiormente,  più delle mie predicazioni e di quelle di tutti i pastori nel mondo, più di tutta la beneficenza raccolta per i bisognosi, più di tutte le campagne evangelistiche mai organizzate, è quel comandamento nuovo,  che ribadisce alla fine della frase:Questo vi comando: che vi amiate gli uni gli altri (v. 17)Preghiamo. GUARDA LE DIAPOSITIVE DEL MESSAGGIOGUARDA IL VIDEO DEL MESSAGGIO IN BASSA RISOLUZIONE SU FACEBOOKGUARDA IL VIDEO DEL MESSAGGIO IN BASSA RISOLUZIONE SU INSTAGRAM---VIDEO DEL MESSAGGIO IN HD A BREVE

THE WONDER: Science-Based Paganism

Remember, we welcome comments, questions and suggested topics at thewonderpodcastQs@gmail.com   S3E32 TRANSCRIPT:----more----   Yucca: Welcome back to The Wonder: Science Based Paganism. I'm one of your host Yucca. Mark: And I'm the other one, Mark. Yucca: And today we are talking about transitioning into the autumn or the fall. That sort of nesting and collecting of your acorns, metaphoric and, and all of that. Mark: Yeah, because. I mean, if you're like us, the autumn is a, a really lovely time. It's just, it's a time to be enjoyed for so many different reasons. And as pagans who like sort of the products of nature, right. There's a lot of stuff out there. There's leaves and there's. Pine cones and there's late flowers. And of course there's all the stuff pouring out of the gardens. so there's just, there's a lot of opportunity to decorate and celebrate and kind of button things up for winter around our homes. So that's what we're gonna talk about. Yucca: Right. Well, and there's also a lot of those practical things that we're doing that are a wonderful opportunity to invite more meaning and ritual into our lives as we're doing those things anyways. Right. Mark: Yes. Yes. Yucca: So Mark: Yeah. I mean all that food preparation stuff that, I mean, it's practical, right? Because it's food preparation, but it's, it's pretty witchy stuff. When, when you, when you get down to it, you know, the brewing and the pickling and the drying and all that stuff, it's all very witchy. Yucca: Yeah, well, and, and even things also like you're switching out, you're bringing your sweaters out, right. Bringing those out and, and going through and making sure the moths didn't get into them and putting the there's the heavier blankets on the bed and, and all of those sorts of things, you know, there's, there was an episode we did. Few years back at this point about the kind, bringing the magic into things we talked about. Like, you know, when you're putting the shampoo on your head, it's not just shampoo, but it's your, your magical potion of charisma or whatever it is. You know, there's so much of that, that this time of year, I think there's just a opportunity for, Mark: Yeah. There's at, at least in the temperate zone, there's so much of a sense of transition. There's kind of a magic in the air. The weather is changing. The character of the light is changing. It won't be long before. In most places. Daylight savings thing changes. So the whole sense of the length of the day changes and that's just a really ripe canvas for for doing our creative ritual activity around Yucca: Yeah. So last week we did talk about the Equinox. But there, are there any things that you have been doing? Since then in the, in the last week or so, or things that you will be doing that fit in with this transition theme that we're talking about? Mark: Well, one thing that I did was my Northern California atheopagan affinity group, which calls itself the live Oak circle went camping last weekend. And that was really cool to, you know, to do, to do an Equinox ritual in person with people. And we're still getting to know one another and still kind of feeling our way. So, you know, that, that will, that will mature over time, but it's really a lovely group of people. Very diverse, very interesting. And I just, I had a wonderful time And so that was something that I, I did for the Equinox season that I'm really happy about. Go ahead. Yucca: is, is camping during the winter a, a possibility, or is this really your last camp of the, the year? Mark: It's a possibility, but you're gonna get rained on Yucca: Okay. Mark: and I don't mind snow for camping very much because it's dryer. Yucca: Mm-hmm Mark: But rain can really be a pain. Yeah. I mean, it's, everything's all muddy and it, it can really be a pain. But that said the I've gone camping in say February, which is the wet month of the year for us. And it's been glorious. It's, I've gone out to the coast. The, the waves are all stormy and there are not many people out there because it's not tourist season. So you can really have a wonderful experience doing that. Yucca: Mm. Nice. Mark: Yeah. Yucca: And I'm sorry. I think I had cut you off. You were starting to say something else as well. Mark: Probably, but I have no idea what it was now. So that's something that I did. And my partner NAIA brought home a an armature for a reef. This made out of grape vines this week that we're going to put seasonal things on and hang on our door. So that's another thing that hasn't been done yet, but will be we have to go out and collect some leaves and pine cones and things like that. Because it's just, the leaves are just starting to turn here. I mean, week before last, we had. We had temperatures from the high nineties to 117 over a space of about seven days. Yucca: so hot. Mark: And so now I think the trees are figuring out that, okay, we're done with that now. It's it's time to start shutting down. Yucca: Right. And some of that is, is cued by the light more than the temperature. It depends on the species, but the, the light can really play a role in, in what they're doing. Mark: Mm-hmm Yucca: Hmm. Well, we don't have a lot of trees that do change in the autumn. We have a few but for the most part, you can still feel it in the air here. But the flowers have really changed. This is the end of our monsoon season. So we had a lot of. Flowers. And this past week, the, the kiddos and I went out and just gathered a whole bunch of flowers. And we had a dear friend with us as well, who showed the kids how to leave the, the flowers and they made flower crowns. And even though that's something that is more associated with spring, On like a larger level for us, it's more of a fall thing because that's when we actually have the flowers, right. We have like some little tiny things in the spring, but they're just, but usually the, the end of winter is very dry for us. Right. When we do get snows, it's more in, in the beginning of win, like more in a January, February time. But by the time we get into March and April, there's not much moisture. So there really isn't a lot in the spring, but in the autumn, we've got these All kinds of MOS and sunflowers and Veria and all of these beautiful things to, to weave in and add. And we were talking about be before we started recording, I was showing mark the, the photos from it. And mark, you suggested, and I love this idea of putting, if you had leaves putting leaves in doing leave crowns. You know, the cone pine cones and, and whatever it is, that's in your environment. That is, that is fall or autumn for you. Mark: Sure. Yeah. I mean, one idea that you could do as a part of your Equinox celebration actually would be to have to crown like an autumn king and an autumn queen or autumn royalty of whatever gender, Yucca: Mm-hmm. Mark: To kind of oversee the feast. Right. And it'd be really cute if those were kids. Yucca: Yes, Mark: so Yucca: the kids with, with flower crowns and leaf crowns is just cute. Just too cute. Mark: you bet. So that's, that's something else that you could do, theoretically. I. I mean, there's, there's so much that's so aesthetically pleasing about this time of the year to bring it into your house and make it clear that there's less of a division between inside and outside, I think is something that can be really valuable for us. Yucca: yeah. Some of that, depending on how far north or how far cold your climate gets. It is a little bit of a last chance this time of year for some of the outdoor stuff, because when the snows do come, when the bitter cold does come, there's a lot more of that. Just staying nestled inside. So I think of this a lot as like a nesting time getting ready, right? Just like that's what I see the animals outside doing the ones that stay here. We still have a few that have not left. I saw some hummingbirds today and I'm going, Hey. Get going get going. You're not gonna like it here. But the ones that, that stay here, you know, all of our little rodents and the Jays and things they're busy as can be right now, just packing away their cheeks, full the Jays. It's so funny. They can have multiple, we leave sunflower seeds out for. Which they've now planted everywhere. But they can fit multiple ones in their beak at once. So you'll see them going by with like three or four seeds in one beak and then the, all the squirrels and chipmunks with their faces just stuffed full of whatever it is that they can find. Mark: Nice Yucca: and so I, I kind of feel like that, right. Just stuffing, you know, it's time to stuff, things in, but it's a good time also for a fall clean. We have a spring cleaning as a Mark: Mm, Yucca: in the larger culture, but it's a good time to do that. Fall cleaning and clean out all this stuff from summer, that's gone. Right? You're getting rid of that stuff. You don't need that anymore. And bring out, you know, bring out the things that you do. What are your, the boots, if you're in a, I'm sure this is for your environment. You probably have some big boots. The rain boots Mark: nice rubber Wellingtons. Yeah. Yucca: You know, maybe put those flip flops away, bring out the wellies. Mark: Yeah, for sure. Yeah. And I, I think of it this way. We're gonna be spending a lot more time indoors now. Yucca: Mm-hmm Mark: Uh, going forward for the next six months or so. Right. Because the conditions are going to get more inhospitable outside. So let's make the inside a place we wanna be, you know, let's make it cozy and comfortable and pretty and practical and all those different kinds of dimensions of what makes a real home. Yucca: mm-hmm yeah. Mark: And there are ritual things that we can do that can contribute to that, which is, can be fun. I think, you know, assembling that reef and putting it on the, on the doorstep, I think is gonna be a great thing. I. Also getting dried squashes and pumpkins and so forth to, to decorate the front area just. Yes. We, we were talking about this before we started to record. Yes, it's true. Pumpkins tend to be associated with Halloween and Hallows, but they're available now and they're actually pouring out of the gardens right now. So, you know, grab a few. Yucca: Yeah. And there are some, some really fun ones. If you haven't grown them, that's one of the ones I really encourage you to try. Because squash are pretty forgiving for, for being grown. And you can grow in a five gallon bucket and get one of those. You can, you can grow maybe one plant, but you could do something like one of those, those little Jacky littles. Have you seen those little pumpkins? They're about the size of like your fist? Mark: Oh yeah. Yucca: Yeah, those are a great one. And some of the smaller ones, you could grow a big one, but those are ones that you could do in your window. If you don't have any backyard to put it in, if you do, but you gotta have your big container, right. You can get away with one or so, and then they'll just take over. But the smaller, the smaller, the winter squashes, the more of them you're likely to get. If you're trying to grow one of your, like your huge, like fair winning pumpkin. You're not gonna be able to pull that off indoors or on a balcony, but something little you might be able to. And they're usually pretty easy to save seeds from too. So if you go to the, the farmer's market or even the grocery store, and you see that really weird pumpkin with all the like bumps on it and those strange colors and stuff. Just save one or two of those. Right. And see if the next, next year, maybe you can get that to, to grow in your house or on your porch or, and if it doesn't work, then would you lose Mark: Right. Yeah. Yucca: You're gonna, Mark: You, you, you had the pumpkin anyway, so yeah, it's what you lost was one bite of toasted pumpkin seeds. Yucca: Yeah. So, yeah, so pumpkins And depending on how far along they are in your climate, the dried sunflower heads. Mark: Huh? Yucca: those ones. Mine. They're not in my area. They're not quite ready. We need another, another couple weeks. But for the big, like the mamma sunflowers and they're just so beautiful, you see that spiral pattern of the seeds, assuming you can get to it before the birds. Mark: right, Yucca: Yeah, but if you pick it before the seeds have developed, then you're, they're not gonna develop on the, the head. Right? So if you, if you wanna save one of those, let's say you have several flowers, you can put a paper bag over it, as long as it's still attached to the, the plant, but it won't fully develop. It's not like some of those little grasses and things. If you cut those off early, then they'll just ripen really quick. There's just not enough time for those big sunflowers to do that. Mark: that makes sense. Yucca: So, yeah. Mark: Yeah. Yucca: So. Mark: and of course, you know, we're talking about produce. And so even if you don't have your own garden, this is the time for the fruit stands and the vegetable stands. And, you know, it's, it's a time, even, even if you do most of your shopping at a market, you know, if that's where you get most of your food, do some exploring, find out what the local varieties are of things. You know, play around with some new vegetables, because there are gonna be weird things that you just don't really recognize or understand how to use. And of course you can pick up things for preservation, which is a big part traditionally of this time of year. As people work to save as many calories as they possibly can for the winter, when. When the food systems are not gonna be producing, Yucca: Mm-hmm Mark: so, Yucca: And this is a fun time of year to, to try with the pickling and the fermenting. Speaking of those sort of witchy looking and feeling things you'd have those nice jars. That's definitely fun to do. Mark: Yeah, get some local honey and do a quick bead. That'll be ready by hellos. You can do some of that.  Yucca: Yeah. Mead and insiders are really easy. They're not like they're not like beer that is much more finicky and you need more equipment and stuff Mark: and there are so many more steps. Yucca: Yeah. Mark: For for beer. Beer is really actually a pretty complicated chemistry experiment when you get down to it making the, the wart so that the food for the yeast is absolutely perfect to create a particular flavor is really, you know, an art. It is, it's an art and there are people that are very good at it. I'm not one of them because I discovered that. There's all this fantastic beer available for 10 bucks, a six pack and I don't have to learn to be a master. Other people have, have done that for me, Yucca: Right. Mark: but I do like Yucca: gonna be, if it's something you're gonna be consuming a lot of versus something you're making just a small amount for. Just sort of the joy of it, you know, you have different considerations. Mark: right. Yeah. I mean, if you're only doing the five gallon. Car full, then that's a pretty easy project. Yucca: yeah, Mark: So it's something to look into it's and, and there is definitely a sense of pride and accomplishment. When you make a nice beverage like that and people enjoy it and appreciate it, and it gives you an opportunity to be creative about bottle labels and all that kind of stuff. It's fun. Yucca: another one to, to look into if you're interested in making things like that, but you don't want as high of an alcohol content is kombucha. Kombucha is really easy to make. And when you make it at home, it can have a higher content than what you would buy in the store. Still not gonna be very much though. Like if you wanna have an alcoholic kombucha, you've gotta try, you've gotta go out of your way to make it that way. You're not gonna accidentally make it as high content as your CIS or wines, beers, things like that. So you'll get a pretty low amount. That's a really fun one that also, if you're looking for something to feel super witchy with, like it makes this SCOBY on top that it makes is this bizarre, bubbly looking. It's really cool. And if you've got kids, you can, that you can lay on poke it and stuff and it's, it's fun. So,  Mark: another option, which is fully non-alcoholic is to make what are called shrubs. Yucca: mm-hmm. Mark: Shrubs are syrups that you add to sparkling water. They're made with vinegar and sugar and various kinds of herbs and fruits. So like strawberry and basil is, you know, one combination. There's, there's lots of recipes on the internet for making shrubs. I know it's a weird name. I didn't get it either, but that's what they're called. They're called shrubs. And they used to be very popular in the 19th century. They were, they were very, very common. And so you make these concentrated syrups and then you mix it with sparkling water and it, and maybe toss in, you know, another basal leaf or something for some fresh aromatics. And there are these very complex, interesting things to drink, but they don't have any alcohol in them. Yucca: Yeah. That sounds like something I'm sure that somebody is really passionate about and has their, their blog or channel on the boat. Mark: yep. Yeah, absolutely. Yucca: yeah. Well, pivoting away from the kitchen in the home, there's also things that That we might be doing like the buttoning up of the windows. Right. You're making sure that your windows seal properly and that the, the door isn't, isn't letting a draft through or something like that. And so that's, that's really a lovely time to maybe do a, a home. Kind of protection ritual or cleaning ritual or something like that, where maybe you're checking the window for the drafts, but you know, maybe there's something that you wanna be meditating on at while you're doing that or sprinkling some salt as well. Right. You're gonna protect from the drafts, but also, you know, protect on, on just sort of the symbolic level. Mark: Right. And you can be very specific about that sort of thing. I mean, what occurs to me is you can dip your fingertips into some rainwater that you've saved and then sort of flick it at the front door and it doesn't go through. So the, the point being, you know, we're rain proofing the house, we're demonstrating that this. The weather's not going to get inside. Yucca: Mm-hmm. Mark: Putting salt at the corners of the house is of course a traditional protection thing as well. There are lots of various witchy sorts of activities that I think can give us more of a sense of comfort and solidity and security in our, in our homes. Even though, you know, they're just symbolic actions and we know that, but that, that doesn't matter. They still affect us. And there's a good feeling about kind of taking care of yourself that way about going through all of the gestures that are necessary in order to feel like you are in a secure and happy, warm, and cozy place. Yucca: Mm-hmm . Yeah. Hmm. Yeah, this is just, this is just one of my favorite times of year. I just wanna say that, right. just, oh, the chill and the it's still hot in the middle of the day for us, but in the mornings and the evenings, it's got that little brisk and, you know, so there's just so many lovely things. And as always, we really love hearing from all of you. And you tell us about some of the things you do.  Mark: Yes, especially if you're in other climbs because you know, there's a, there's a woman who's on the atheopagan council who comes to the Saturday morning zoom mixers pretty frequently. And she was just saying this morning that it's just barely starting to be tolerably. Cool there now it's still pretty hot and she's in Tampa, Florida. So she's actually in the subtropics. Yucca: Yeah. Mark: Which is, it's just, it's a whole other deal, right. You know, the, the dreaded season is not the winter. The dreaded season is the summer. Yucca: right. Mark: it's very hot and very humid and just not very hospitable full of bugs. Yucca: Mm-hmm Mark: Um, so Yucca: we're ready for the mosquitoes to take a break. Mark: are Yucca: really ready for them to Mark: I, I see, okay. Yucca: yeah, but I'm sure their mosquitoes are on a different level. Mark: Yeah, well, because of all the moisture everywhere, right? There's just there's enough moisture to support so much growth. So all the plants, all the animals, they really go to town. Yucca: yeah. Mark: What else I'm trying to think of what else? I mean, this is a real season for paying attention, just watching what's happening with the sky. You know, noticing the branches of the trees against the sky as they get more and more naked and lose their leaves.  Yucca: And in some places that's a, that's an overnight. It's amazing how quick things change. Right. And in others, it's a slow, kinda drawn out process that, oh, what are we going through? And it just hap and then others, it just happens. Mark: Right, right. Yeah. Yeah. To me. The the time change is always kind of slamming the door on the remnants of summer and, you know, really, you know, bringing winter on board. But the time leading up to that, you know, the whole spy month of October and, you know, I mean they're Yucca: have some good topics coming up for October. I Mark: oh, we do. Yucca: October. Mark: Yeah, me too. There's just, there's so much to be said about not only our practices as pagans, but just living a life. You know, the, the kinds of considerations that we have at that time of year are so profound thinking about mortality and about ancestry and all those kinds of things. But this is the, this is the onset of that. This, this moment right here is when we slip from summer into this different transitional kind of state. And I, I just really enjoy it. I find myself even more attentive to what's going on outside and around me, because it's so beautiful. Yucca: Yeah. Hmm. Mark: So I hope that wherever you are, you're having a similar experience of Of wonderful arrival of autumn wherever you may be and feel free to drop us a note about how you're experiencing that or what any of your traditions are for the autumn and going into going into that. October season you can reach us as always at the wonder podcast, QS, gmail.com, and we always enjoy hearing from you. Yucca: Yeah. Mark: So thanks everybody. Yucca: Yeah. Mark: Thanks. Thanks for being with us. We always appreciate so much that you listen.    .

Today's episode is the second of three crossover episodes with Sound-Up Governance, a new podcast that's part of the Ground-Up Governance platform (www.groundupgovernance.com). In this one, Matt Fullbrook speaks with Lieutenant Colonel Jamahl Evans of the United States Marine Corps about what duty and accountability mean in his world.    TRANSCRIPT: Matt  Welcome back to Sound-Up Governance. One of the most common conversations I have with boards of directors and senior executives is about to whom they owe a duty. On the surface, it seems like a simple question, but most of the time, everyone in the room has a different idea of what "duty" even means. So the question of where your duty lies takes a lot more work to explore than most people expect. And when you add in the difference between duty and accountability, plus when and to whom you can delegate duties and accountability. Let's just say it gets tricky, fast. This week's guest is Lieutenant Colonel Jamahl Evans of the United States Marine Corps. In addition to his extraordinary military career, Jamahl is also a corporate governance enthusiast. As you might imagine, duty and accountability are baked pretty deep into everything that goes on in the Marines. But before we dive into that, I'll let Jamahl explain exactly what his job is because it's pretty neat. Jamahl  I am currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Marine Corps. And what I do in the Marine Corps is financial management. I'm a financial management officer. That's what we call a Military Occupational Specialty, or MOS for short. In that capacity, I'm responsible for the planning and execution and oversight of my command's budget. Now, that's just the MOS piece. As I like to tell my Marines, your MOS is your job. Marine is your profession. So for me, my profession, and my first duty is being a Marine. And that means ensuring that my Marines and I are deployment ready and combat capable at all times. The section that I manage - my full title would be Assistant Chief of Staff, G-8 Comptroller - so that's a section and we've got about 14 Marines in there. So those are the Marines who are directly responsible and accountable to me to make sure that we're doing our financial management functions properly. Outside of that, external to us, are adjacent staff sections, and subordinate commands within the organization with whom we have to work to manage resources: make sure that we're that we've got enough resources and that we're using the resources we have properly. Matt  Now, I'm going to assume that many of you listening are as ignorant about the hierarchy of the Marines as I am, where exactly does the rank of Lieutenant Colonel fit in the organizational chart? Jamahl  So as a Lieutenant Colonel, I'm what's called a field grade officer, and there are three levels to that. So it's Major, which is what I was before, Lieutenant Colonel, what I am now, and Colonel, what I aspire to be promoted to in future. Beyond the field grade ranks, are the General or the flag officer ranks, so Brigadier General, Major General, Lieutenant General and Four Star General. So right now I am, what you would consider - although I'm senior to several other ranks - I'm still right smack in the middle of the of the officer and organizational hierarchy. So every promotion, you're getting greater responsibility. And they are also greater opportunities to which you can be assigned. So as what's called a company grade officer - those are junior officers: lieutenants, and captains - you're going to have significant responsibility already. When you become a field grade officer. What's interesting is, now you are a little further away from the junior Marines, and a little more responsible for organizational management. Beyond just making sure your Marines are trained, making sure they're taken care of making sure they're showing up on time and doing their job, now you are responsible for really understanding organizational policies, regulations, understanding what the what the mission of the organization is, and how your unit relates to that and ensuring that happens in the best way. Matt  Before our interview, Jamahl already knew that we were going to talk about duty and accountability. You'll notice that so far, he's being pretty careful not to use those words, instead referring to "responsibility." I nudged him a bit on that and asked him to tell me to whom he's accountable in his job and whether that's different from his duty. This is where things start getting really interesting. Jamahl  So to whom I am accountable in the immediate, that would be my commanding general. That is the senior officer who runs the organization. It's a Major General who runs Second Marine Division. So that is the first officer to whom I immediately accountable because it really is his budget that I'm managing. It's not me making solo decisions. It's not Lieutenant Colonel Evans going "I feel like buying this!" No, it is based on the mission of the organization and the intent of my senior leader, which would be my commanding General. So that's the immediate accountability portion of it. Broader, or writ large, when I think about to whom I'm accountable, personally, there is, first of all, the Constitution of the United States. We actually take an oath as officers, and our enlisted Marines take an oath as well. But we take an oath and in our oath is the Constitution of the United States. To support and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic. So that wraps up the nation, and accountability towards the nation. My authority and my mission come directly from the President of the United States, so I'm accountable to the President of the United States, as well. Then you have United States citizens: the American people are truly the shareholders because it's their tax dollars I'm managing. It's their tax dollars, for whom my senior officers, President, Congress, we're responsible for that. So we do have to take into account and I've done it on several occasions where there were decisions that I had to make when working with partner nations. And I had to make tough determinations because I am managing taxpayer dollars. Matt  Okay, whoa. We're still only talking about accountability here and already for what's essentially a middle manager in a huge organization, Jamahl is accountable to his boss, and the President of the United States, and every taxpayer? Seriously? And if you thought the complexity would stop there, you were wrong. Let's add duty into the mix. Jamahl  You would think 20 years in the Marine Corps, I've got a good solid understanding of duty. And I did I had a good personal understanding. Then I got curious about well, what is the actual definition of duty? And the definition I came across was "a legal or a moral obligation." And I didn't, while that's true, I didn't feel that was the full story. And think when when it comes to duty, there is an intangible step of building a sense of duty. We can understand what duty is, but there is a step of building that within an individual. Some individuals just come to the organization with it. Some individuals don't. And I would say that the short answer to your question: Duty is having the knowledge, feeling, belief that you should do what you're supposed to do to the best of your ability, because that's the requirement. Accountability is a bit more on the reactive side. It's how do you explain what you've done? How do you take responsibility for what you've done? Who else shares in that responsibility? So that's where I would see the difference. I would see duty as being a bit more on the front end of actions and accountability on the back end. Matt  Okay, wait, pause. This is amazing stuff. If you're anything like me, you think of the Marines as being the definition of tangible structure, discipline, order. I mean, if you ask me for the first word that comes to my mind, when you say the word "Marines," it would probably be "duty." But now I'm hearing that duty is something almost soft and squishy, something that comes from the inside, rather than being imposed on you from the outside. Am I hearing that right? Jamahl  And that was the second thought that I had, after I considered how I would define duty. The second thought being, well, how do you instill it? How do you ensure it? How do you develop it? How does it come about? Like you said, there's some external factor that plays upon you to help build a sense of duty. And the thing I thought about was, okay, well, if I were in an organization, what would help drive my own sense of duty? Because I came to the Marine Corps with a sense of duty. And I thought of one thing or a multitude of things, but I keyed in on one thing that I think helps build that. I think the principles of an organization can drive a sense of duty, and that's your external thing that comes into play. And how it works is when when people see your principles, and I don't care if it's in a slogan or motto anything, there's got to be a connection. And the connection that has to be established is: I either possess the characteristics of those principles already, or those are principles that I want to possess, I want to display those. Matt  So cool! It's like duty, this thing that the dictionary defines as a legal or moral obligation, might actually be more of a special sauce, where the ingredients are a person's internal drive character and beliefs, plus the purpose and values of their organization. So I wondered: if accountability is basically a set of responsibilities imposed on a person by an external or organizational structure. And duty is something that comes more from inside you, there must be lots of ways that duty and accountability could come into conflict. Like if your moral duty and beliefs make it hard to carry out an order from your boss, for example. In a case like that, what is Jamahl hope his Marines will do to address the conflict? Jamahl  In my office, I have established with my Marines, we do not use the word "hope". And they find it interesting they find it, you know, they find it funny. But we all know that it's a common theme in the Marine Corps, that hope is not a course of action. So when you talk about anybody who's having kind of a dilemma, or a conundrum, I don't have a hope for them. What I do is engage to see what kind of actions we can take to improve the situation. So to answer your direct question, the first thing is, there historically can be dilemmas between what the organization needs to do and how they need to do it, and what the individual thinks about it. So the first thing, which is one of the foundations, is that a Marine does not have to follow an unlawful order. So if you, as a Marine or as any service person, believe that an order you've received is unlawful or illegal, you do not have to do it. However, if an order is lawful, you might not agree with it, you might have a personal feeling, but you're still going to do it, you have a job to do. And if you've been given given a lawful order, then you execute! Now here's where the development comes into play, to minimize the dilemma that you hypothesized. As we grow within our organizations, it's on the mid-level and senior leaders to ensure that there's quality understanding, quality training, quality conversation, quality voice, making that time for your junior personnel to ask you those tough questions. And I tried to get my Marines to ask tough questions early on. That way they can experience and understand a glimpse that what your perspective is, at your level doesn't encompass the entire picture. And you have to understand that there are threads between what you functionally do and what we organizationally decide. Matt  Like most important things in life, this is a complex problem. When duty and accountability collide, or when your personal beliefs are in conflict with what your organization asks of you, sometimes you have to, you know, just trust your boss and do the work. But Jamahl is also telling us that it's important for organizational leaders to give their team a voice, a platform, and an opportunity to better understand how they fit into the bigger picture. But again, we're hearing something that kind of doesn't match my own perception of a military organization where everything is super structured, and everyone has to do the same things at the same time. You know, predictable and repeatable. How can you have both that and an environment where everyone has a voice and some influence and problem solving? Jamahl  Senior leaders have to create space for that to happen. If you're running a completely robotic organization where people just do a thing, and there's no room to either question, consult, understand, develop, grow, then you're going to have people doing robotic things. No military can be at its best when it's just "do the exact thing that I tell you and that's it," because you will have a group of people who will do one thing and will stop. So just like any other organization, we do need to increase the bandwidth for creative thinking, innovative thinking, especially when it comes to problem solving. So those types of behaviors that we want everybody doing the same way in the Marine Corps, we want everyone to be in shape. We don't even want it, we need it. That's a requirement. You're required to be in shape. Two months ago, I ran three miles. I don't like distance running, though I do it as well as I can...I do pretty good. But we want our Marines staying in shape. We want our people healthy, and not just physically healthy, mentally, and emotionally healthy. So it's on again, senior leadership to engage and be aware that that's happening. Shifting over to the behaviors where we want to expand and have that bandwidth to learn and to grow. That's where your innovation piece comes in. Where we want Marines thinking about developed solutions to problems, branch scenarios. "What would you do?" is a great question. "What would you do?" It's a very easy thing to sit down with your personnel and go over a scenario, something that happened in your career, "Hey, this, this happened. What do you think you would do in this situation?" You have that conversation. The next step, in that is the daily activities, daily tasks, daily operations, giving your people that space to make decisions at their level. Matt  It surprised me a bit to hear Jamahl talk about the importance of not just physical health, but also mental well-being in the Marines. But now that I think about it, it really shouldn't have surprised me at all. It can be an extraordinary, stressful and dangerous job. And it made an impact on me to hear him talk about it as part of the duty of being a Marine. The duty to care for your own physical and mental well being, but also that of the people around you. How does that actually play out in the real world of the Marine Corps? Jamahl  When you place a focus on engagement, treatment, development, recovery, and then success, you establish a continuum that's understandable by your junior leaders. One of the things I think the Department of Defense is great at is messaging the need to be aware. Messaging the need to be aware and see signs. And we've had a lot of messaging over the years. But it's something that is important, because we're talking about the health of the organization. So what gets a message down to mid-level and junior leaders is "here are different signs, things that you should be looking for. If you've never had to deal with this before. Here's something that could trigger in your mind a something might be wrong." I have had the experience of walking past a Marine and getting a greeting, they say "Good morning, sir." I'll say "Good morning." And sometimes I'll say "how are you?" A lot of people don't like that greeting because you really just say it and you pass the person and you go. But about three times in my career I've said good morning to a Marine and I've looked and I said "how are you?" And they will respond with "fine" or "okay". And it's just something in the eyes. And three times I've had to pull the Marine aside and say, "seriously, I know I'm not your commanding officer, you don't even know me. But are you good?"And then those three instances I've hadn't read, say "no." So then I would stop what I was doing, call whomever I was going to meet whatever meeting I was going to say, "Look, I can't make it, I have a situation." And I'll take that Marine into the office. Now sometimes that results in one hour, two hour conversations. But so long as that Marine leaves with something functional to get them to the next step. I'm not going to cure everything. I'm not trained to cure everything. And I don't have the time to cure everything. But what I can do is show you where the door is, and open it and say, "Look, you can step through that door. If you can do nothing else, you can step through that door, because we may be side by side, fighting against an enemy. And I gotta know that you're good." And it's not just for junior members either. It goes for our senior members, and I'll share one more story when I've worked... I was a Major and I worked with a Lieutenant Colonel. He was he was my Commanding Officer and I was his Executive Officer. And I noticed the level of stress that he was fighting. He wasn't losing it or anything like that - he was completely capable. But you can see fatigue in people. One day I heard him come on deck. And he was walking his office was after my office. That way I catch all the people that want to try to go and see him. So I hear him walk into his office, and about three or four different Marines approached him with a with an issue, something they had, "Sir, this or that." So they walked by my office. I said, "Sir, do you have a moment?" And the way he normally did it he would just say "yes." But you could see the fatigue in his eyes. So he came in, I said "Sir, do you mind if I close the hatch?" And he said, "not at all". So you close the hatch - for your listeners a hatch is a door. Naval terminology -  and he sat down on the couch in my office, and he said, "What do you have?" And I said "nothing, sir, you just looked like you needed to have a time when nobody's asking you to do something." And he smiled and looked at me, he goes, "You up for tacos?" I said, "Yes, sir." So we went and had lunch. So sometimes we have to look out for senior leaders in the same way to look out for junior people. So it just, it just takes compassion, awareness and engagement. Matt  There it is! Even in an organization as structured, complex and disciplined as the United States Marine Corps., Sometimes it's important to just go and have tacos with your boss. I learned so much from my conversation with Lieutenant Colonel Jamahl Evans and we covered a lot more ground than what you heard in this episode, so you'll hear more from him in the future. If you have a question, story, or insight you'd like to share, please send a note or a voice memo to soundup@groundupgovernance.com, and we may feature you in a future episode. On the next episode of Sound-Up Governance. I talk with performance strategist, investment guru and corporate governance enthusiast Lisa Oldridge about businesses, companies, customers, and how they all fit together. Until next time.

#93 - How to Become a Cyber Security Expert

How do you become a Cyber Security Expert? Hello and welcome to another episode of CISO Tradecraft, the podcast that provides you with the information, knowledge, and wisdom to be a more effective cybersecurity leader.  My name is G. Mark Hardy, and today we're going to talk about how to provide advice and mentoring to help people understand how to become a cybersecurity expert.  As always, please follow us on LinkedIn, and subscribe to our podcasts. As a security leader, part of your role is to develop your people.  That may not be written anywhere in your job description and will probably never be on a formal interview or evaluation, but after years of being entrusted with leadership positions, I have learned what differentiates true leaders from those who just accomplish a great deal is the making of the effort to develop your people. Now, you may have heard the phrase, "take care of your people," but I'll take issue with that.  I take care of my dog.  I take care of a family member who is sick, injured, or incapacitated.  Why?  Because they are not capable of performing all of life's requirements on their own.  For the most part, your people can do this.  If you are constantly doing things for people who could have otherwise done it themselves, you run the risk of creating learned helplessness syndrome.  People, and even animals, can become conditioned to not do what they otherwise could do out of a belief that someone else will do it for them.  I am NOT going to get political here, so don't worry about that.  Rather, I want to point out that effective leaders develop their people so that they may become independent actors and eventually become effective leaders themselves.  In my opinion, you should measure your success by the promotion rate of the people entrusted to you, not by your own personal career advancement or financial success. That brings me to the subject of today's podcast -- how do you counsel and mentor others on how to become a cyber security expert?  If you are listening to this podcast, there's a very good chance that you already are an expert in our field, but if not, keep listening and imagine that you are mentoring yourself, because these lessons can apply to you without having seek out a mentor.  Some people figure it out, and when asked their secret, they're like Bill Murray in the movie Stripes, "We trained ourselves, sir!"  But most of the time, career mastery involves learning from a number of others. Today on CISO Tradecraft we are going to analyze the question, " How do you become a Cyber Security Expert?"  I'm going to address this topic as if I were addressing someone in search of an answer.  Don't tune out early because you feel you've already accomplished this.  Keep listening so you can get a sense of what more you could be doing for your direct reports and any proteges you may have. Let's start at the beginning.  Imagine being a high school kid with absolutely zero work experience (other than maybe a paper route -- do kids still do that?)  You see someone that tells you they have a cool job where they get paid to ethically hack into computers.  Later on, you meet a second person that says they make really good money stopping bad actors from breaking into banks.  Somehow these ideas stick into your brain, and you start to say to yourself, you know both of those jobs sound pretty cool.  You begin to see yourself having a career in Cyber Security.  You definitely prefer it to jobs that require a lot of manual labor and start at a low pay.  So, you start thinking, "how I can gain the skills necessary to land a dream job in cyber security that also pays well?" At CISO Tradecraft we believe that there are really four building blocks that create subject matter experts in most jobs.  The four building blocks are: Getting an education Getting certifications Getting relevant job experience, and Building your personal brand So, let's explore these in detail. Number 1:  Getting an education.  When most people think about getting an education after high school, they usually talk about getting an associate's or a bachelor's degree.  If you were to look at most Chief Information Security Officers, you will see the majority of them earn a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, an Information Systems or Technology degree from a college of business such as a BS in Management of Information Systems (MIS) or Computer Information Systems, or more recently a related discipline such as a degree in Cyber Security. An associate degree is a great start for many, particularly if you don't have the money to pay for a four-year university degree right out of high school.  Tuition and debt can rack up pretty quickly, leaving some students deeply in debt, and for some, that huge bill is a non-starter.  Fortunately, community colleges offer quality educational opportunities at very competitive rates relative to four-year degree institutions.  For example, Baltimore County Community College charges $122 per credit hour for in-county residents.  A couple of miles away, Johns Hopkins University charges $2,016 per credit hour.  Now, that's a HUGE difference -- over 16 times if you do the math.  Now, Hopkins does have some wonderful facilities and excellent faculty, but when it comes to first- and second-year undergraduate studies, is the quality and content of the education THAT different?  Well, that's up to you to decide. The important take-away is, no one should decide NOT to pursue a cybersecurity education because of lack of money.  You can get started at any age on an associate degree, and that may give you enough to go on to get your first job.  However, if you want to continue on to bachelor's degree, don't give up.  Later I'll explain about a program that has been around since 2000 and has provided over 3,300 students with scholarships AND job placement after graduation. Back to those going directly for a bachelor's degree.  Now, the good news is that your chosen profession is likely to pay quite well, so not only are you likely to be able to pay off the investment you make in your education, but it will return dividends many times that which you paid, for the rest of your career.  Think of financing a degree like financing a house.  In exchange for your monthly mortgage payment, you get to enjoy a roof over your head and anything else you do with your home.  As a cybersecurity professional, in exchange for your monthly student loan payment, you get to earn well-above average incomes relative to your non-security peers, and hopefully enjoy a rewarding career.  And, like the right house, the value of your career should increase over time making your investment in your own education one of your best performing assets. Does this mean that you 100% need a bachelor's degree to get a job in cyber?  No, it does not.  There are plenty of cyber professionals that speak at Blackhat and DEF CON who have never obtained a college degree.  However, if ten applicants are going for an extremely competitive job and only seven of the ten applicants have a college degree in IT or Cyber, you shouldn't be surprised when HR shortens the list of qualified applicants to only the top five applicants all having college degrees.  It may not be fair, but it's common.  Plus, a U.S. Census Bureau study showed that folks who have a bachelor's degree make half a million dollars more over a career than those with an associate degree, and 1.6 times what a high school diploma holder may earn over a lifetime.  So, if you want more career opportunities and want to monetize your future, get past that HR checkbox that looks for a 4-year degree. Now, some people (usually those who don't want to do academic work) will say that a formal education isn't necessary for success.  After all, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg were college dropouts, and they're both worth billions.  True, but that's a false argument that there's a cause-and-effect relationship there.  Both were undergraduates at Harvard University when they developed their business ideas.  So, if someone wants to assert a degree isn't necessary, counter with you'll agree once they are accepted into Harvard, and they produce a viable business plan as a teenager while attending classes. You see, completing four years of education in a field of study proves a few things.  I've interviewed candidates that said they took all of the computer science and cybersecurity courses they wanted and didn't feel a need to "waste time" with fuzzy studies such as history and English composition.  Okay, I'll accept that that person had a more focused education.  But consider the precedent here.  When a course looked uninteresting or difficult, that candidate just passed on the opportunity.  In the world of jobs and careers, there are going to be tasks that are uninteresting or difficult, and no one wants to do them, but they have to get done.  As a boss, do you want someone who has shown the pe  d completed it with an A (or maybe even a B), or do you want someone who passed when the going got a little rough?  The business world isn't academia where you're free to pick and choose whether to complete requirements.  Stuff has to get done, and someone who has a modified form of learned helplessness will most likely not follow through when that boring task comes due.   Remember I said I was going to tell you how to deal with the unfortunate situation where a prospective student doesn't have enough money to pay for college?  There are a couple of ways to meet that challenge.  It's time to talk to your rich uncle about paying for college.  That uncle is Uncle Sam.  Uncle Sam can easily finance your college so you can earn your degrees in Cyber Security.  However, Uncle Sam will want you to work for the government in return for paying for your education.  Two example scholarships that you could look into are the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and Scholarship for Service (SFS).  ROTC is an officer accession program offered at more than 1,700 colleges and universities   across the United States to prepare young adults to become officers in the U.S. Military.  For scholarship students, ROTC pays 100% of tuition, fees, books, and a modest stipend for living expenses.  A successful degree program can qualify an Army second lieutenant for a Military Occupation Specialty (or MOS) such as a 17A Cyber Operations Officer, a 17B Cyber and Electronic Warfare Officer, or a 17D Cyber Capabilities Development Officer, a great start to a cybersecurity career. For the Navy, a graduating Ensign may commission as an 1810 Cryptologic Warfare Officer, 1820 Information Professional Officer, 1830 Intelligence Officer, or an 1840 Cyber Warfare Engineer.  The Navy uses designators rather than MOS's to delineate career patterns.  These designators have changed significantly over the last dozen years and may continue to evolve.  The Marine Corps has a 1702 cyberspace officer MOS.  Note that the Navy and the Marine Corps share a commissioning source in NROTC (Navy ROTC), and unlike the Army that has over 1,000 schools that participate in AROTC and the Air Force that has 1,100 associated universities in 145 detachments, there are only 63 Navy ROTC units or consortiums, although cross-town affiliates include nearly one hundred more colleges and universities. There are a lot of details that pertain to ROTC, and if you're serious about entering upon a military officer career, it's well worth the time and effort to do your research.  Not all ROTC students receive a scholarship; some receive military instruction throughout their four years and are offered a commission upon graduation.  Three- and four-year scholarship students incur a military obligation at the beginning of sophomore year, two-year scholarship students at the beginning of junior year, and one-year scholarship students at the start of senior year.  The military obligation today is eight years, usually the first four of which are on active duty; the rest may be completed in the reserves.  If you flunk out of school, you are rewarded with an enlistment rather than a commission.  These numbers were different when I was in ROTC, and they may have changed since this podcast was recorded, so make sure you get the latest information to make an informed decision. What if you want to serve your country but you're not inclined to serve in the military, or have some medical condition that may keep you from vigorous physical activity, or had engaged in recreational chemical use or other youthful indiscretions that may have disqualified you from further ROTC consideration?  There is another program worth investigating.   The National Science Foundation provides educational grants through the Scholarship For Service program or SFS for short.  SFS is a government scholarship that will pay up to 3 years of costs for undergraduate and even graduate (MS or PhD) educational degree programs.  It's understood that government agencies do not have the flexibility to match private sector salaries in cyber security.  However, by offering scholarships up front, qualified professionals may choose to stay in government service; hence SFS continues as a sourcing engine for Federal employees.  Unlike ROTC, a participant in SFS will incur an obligation to work in a non-DoD branch of the Federal government for a duration equal to the number of years of scholarship provided. In addition to tuition and education-related fees, undergraduate scholarship recipients receive $25,000 in annual academic stipends, while graduate students receive $34,000 per year.  In addition, an additional $6,000 is provided for certifications, and even travel to the SFS Job Fair in Washington DC. That job fair is an interesting affair.  I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the SFS job fair back in 2008.  I saw entities and agencies of the Federal government that I didn't even know existed, but they all had a cybersecurity requirement, and they all were actively hiring.  SFS students qualify for "excepted service" appointments, which means they can be hired through an expedited process.  These have been virtual the last couple of years due to COVID-19 but expect in-person events to resume in the future. I wrote a recommendation for a young lady whom I've known since she was born (her mom is a childhood friend of mine), and as an electrical engineering student in her sophomore year, she was selected for a two-year SFS scholarship.  A good way to make mom and dad happy knowing they're not going to be working until 80 to pay off their kid's education bills. In exchange for a two-year scholarship, SFS will usually require a student to complete a summer internship between the first and second years of school and then work two years in a government agency after graduation.  The biggest benefit to the Scholarship for Service is you can work at a variety of places.  So, if your dream is to be a nation state hacker for the NSA, CIA, or the FBI then this offers a great chance of getting in.  These three-letter agencies heavily recruit from these programs.  As I mentioned, there are a lot of other agencies as well.  You could find work at the State Department, Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Education, the Federal Reserve Board, and I think I remember the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).  Federal executive agencies, Congress, interstate agencies, and even state, local, or tribal governments can satisfy the service requirement.  So, you can get paid to go to college and have a rewarding job in the government that builds a nice background for your career. How would you put all this together?  I spent nine years as an advisor to the National CyberWatch Center.  Founded as CyberWatch I in 2005, it started as a Washington D.C. and Mid-Atlantic regional effort to increase the quantity and quality of the information assurance workforce.  In 2009, we received a National Science Foundation award and grants that allowed the program to go nationwide.  Today, over 370 colleges and universities are in the program.  So why the history lesson? What we did was align curriculum between two-year colleges and four-year universities, such that a student who took the designated courses in an associate degree program would have 100% of those credits transfer to the four-year university.  That is HUGE.  Without getting into the boring details, schools would certify to the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) (formerly known as the National Security Telecommunications and Information Systems Security Committee or NSTISSC) national training standard for INFOSEC professionals known as NSTISSI 4011.  Now with the help of an SFS scholarship, a student with little to no financial resources can earn an associate degree locally, proceed to a bachelor's degree from a respected university, have a guaranteed job coming out of school, and HAVE NO STUDENT DEBT.  Parents, are you listening carefully?  Successfully following that advice can save $100,000 and place your child on course for success. OK, so let's fast forward 3 years and say that you are getting closer to finishing a degree in Cyber Security or Computer Science.  Is there anything else that you can do while performing a summer internship?    That brings us to our second building block.  Getting certifications.   Number Two:  Getting a Certification  Earning certifications are another key step to demonstrate that you have technical skills in cyber security.  Usually, technology changes rapidly.  That means that universities typically don't provide specialized training in Windows 11, Oracle Databases, Amazon Web Services, or the latest programming language.  Thus, while you may come out of a computer science degree with knowledge on how to write C++ and JavaScript, there are a lot of skills that you often lack to be quite knowledgeable in the workforce.  Additionally, most colleges teach only the free version of software.  In class you don't expect to learn how to deploy Antivirus software to thousands of endpoints from a vendor that would be in a Gartner Magic quadrant, yet that is exactly what you might encounter in the workplace.  So, let's look at some certifications that can help you establish your expertise as a cyber professional.  We usually recommend entry level certifications from CompTIA as a great starting point.  CompTIA has some good certifications that can teach you the basics in technology.  For example: CompTIA A+ can teach you how to work an IT Help Desk.  CompTIA Network+ can teach you about troubleshooting, configuring, and managing networks CompTIA Linux+ can help you learn how to perform as a system administrator supporting Linux Systems CompTIA Server+ ensures you have the skills to work in data centers as well as on-premises or hybrid environments. Remember it's really hard to protect a technology that you know nothing about so these are easy ways to get great experience in a technology.  If you want a certification such as these from CompTIA, we recommend going to a bookstore such as Amazon, buying the official study guidebook, and setting a goal to read every day.  Once you have read the official study guide go and buy a set of practice exam questions from a site like Whiz Labs or Udemy.  Note this usually retails for about $10.  So far this represents a total cost of about $50 ($40 dollars to buy a book and $10 to buy practice exams.)  For that small investment, you can gain the knowledge base to pass a certification.  You just need to pay for the exam and meet eligibility requirements. Now after you get a good grasp of important technologies such as Servers, Networks, and Operating Systems, we recommend adding several types of certifications to your resume.  The first is a certification in the Cloud.  One notable example of that is AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate.  Note you can find solution architect certifications from Azure and GCP, but AWS is the most popular cloud provider, so we recommend starting there.  Learning how the cloud works is extremely important.  Chances are you will be asked to defend it and you need to understand what an EC-2 server is, types of storage to make backups, and how to provide proper access control.  So, spend the time and get certified.  One course author who provides a great course is Adrian Cantrill.  You can find his course link for AWS Solutions Architect in our show notes or by visiting learn.cantrill.io.  The course costs $40 and has some of the best diagrams you will ever see in IT.  Once again go through a course like this and supplement with practice exam questions before going for the official certification. The last type of certifications we will mention is an entry cyber security certification.  We usually see college students pick up a Security+ or Certified Ethical Hacker as a foundation to establish their knowledge in cyber security.  Now the one thing that you really gain out of Security+ is a list of technical terms and concepts in cyber security.  You need to be able to understand the difference between Access Control, Authentication, and Authorization if you are to consult with a developer on what is needed before allowing access to a site.  These types of certifications will help you to speak fluently as a cyber professional.  That means you get more job offers, better opportunities, and interesting work.  It's next to impossible to establish yourself as a cyber expert if you don't even understand the technical jargon correctly. Number Three:  Getting Relevant Job Experience OK, so you have a college degree and an IT certification or two. What's next?  At this point in time, you are eligible for most entry level jobs.  So, let's find interesting work in Cyber Security.  If you are looking for jobs in cyber security, there are two places we recommend.  The first is LinkedIn.  Almost all companies post there and there's a wealth of opportunities.  Build out an interesting profile and look professional.  Then apply, apply, apply.  It will take a while to find the role you want.  Also post that you are looking for opportunities and need help finding your first role.  You will be surprised at how helpful the cyber community is.  Here's a pro tip:  add some hashtags with your post to increase its visibility. Another interesting place to consider is your local government.  The government spends a lot of time investing in their employees.  So go there, work a few years, and gain valuable experience.  You can start by going to your local government webpage such as USAJobs.Gov  and search for the Career Codes that map to cyber security.  For example, search using the keyword “2210” to find the job family of Information Technology Management where most cyber security opportunities can be found.  If you find that you get one of these government jobs, be sure to look into college repayment programs.  Most government jobs will help you pay off student loans, finance master's degrees in Cyber Security, or pay for your certifications.  It's a great win-win to learn the trade. Once you get into an organization and begin working your first job out of college, you then generally get one big opportunity to set the direction of your career.  What type of cyber professional do you want to be?  Usually, we see most Cyber Careerists fall into one of three basic paths.   Offensive Security Defensive Security Security Auditing The reason these three are the most common is they have the largest amount of job opportunities.  So, from a pure numbers game it's likely where you are to spend the bulk of your career.  Although we do recommend cross training.  Mike Miller who is the vCISO for Appalachia Technologies put out a great LinkedIn post on this where he goes into more detail.  Note we have a link to it in our show notes.  Here's some of our own thoughts on these three common cyber pathways: Offensive Security is for those that like to find vulnerabilities in things before the bad guys do.  It's fun to learn how to hack and take jobs in penetration testing and the red team.  Usually if you choose this career, you will spend time learning offensive tools like Nmap, Kali Linux, Metasploit, Burp Suite, and others.  You need to know how technology works, common flaws such as the OWASP Top Ten web application security risks, and how to find those vulnerabilities in technology.  Once you do, there's a lot of interesting work awaiting.  Note if these roles interest you then try to obtain the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) certification to gain relevant skill sets that you can use at work. Defensive Security is for the protectors.  These are the people who work in the Security Operations Center (SOC) or Incident Response Teams.  They look for anomalies, intrusions, and signals across the whole IT network.  If something is wrong, they need to find it and identify how to fix it.  Similar to Offensive Security professionals they need to understand technology, but they differ in the types of tools they need to look at.  You can find a defender looking at logs.  Logs can come from an Intrusion Detection System, a Firewall, a SIEM, Antivirus, Data Loss Prevention Tools, an EDR, and many other sources.  Defenders will become an expert in one of these tools that needs to be constantly monitored.  Note if you are interested in these types of opportunities look for cyber certifications such as the MITRE ATT&CK Defender (MAD) or SANS GIAC Certified Incident Handler GCIH to gain relevant expertise. Security Auditing is a third common discipline.  Usually reporting to the Governance, Risk, and Compliance organization, this role is usually the least technical.  This discipline is about understanding a relevant standard or regulation and making sure the organization follows the intent of the standard/regulation.  You will spend a lot of time learning the standards, policies, and best practices of an industry.  You will perform risk assessments and third-party reviews to understand how we certify as an industry.  If you would like to learn about the information systems auditing process, governance and management of IT systems, business processes such as Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Management, and compliance activities, then we recommend obtaining the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification from ISACA.   Ok, so you have a degree, you have certifications, you are in a promising job role, WHAT's Next?  If you want to really become an expert, we recommend you focus on… Number Four: Building your personal brand.   Essentially find a way to give back to the industry by blogging, writing open-source software, creating a podcast, building cybersecurity tutorials, creating YouTube videos, or presenting a lecture topic to your local OWASP chapter on cyber security.  Every time you do you will get smarter on a subject.  Imagine spending three hours a week reading books in cyber security.  If you did that for ten years, think of how many books you could read and how much smarter you would become.  Now as you share that knowledge with others two things happen:   People begin to recognize you as an industry expert.  You will get invited to opportunities to connect with other smart people which allows you to become even smarter.  If you spend your time listening to smart people and reading their works, it rubs off.  You will absorb knowledge from them that will spark new ideas and increase your understanding The second thing is when you present your ideas to others you often get feedback.  Sometimes you learn that you are actually misunderstanding something.  Other times you get different viewpoints.  Yes, this works in the financial sector, but it doesn't work in the government sector or in the university setting.  This feedback also helps you become smarter as you understand more angles of approaching a problem. Trust us, the greatest minds in cyber spend a lot of time researching, learning, and teaching others.  They all know G Mark's law, which I wrote nearly twenty years ago:  "Half of what you know about security will be obsolete in eighteen months." OK so let's recap a bit.  If you want to become an expert in something, then you should do four things. 1) Get a college education so that you have the greatest amount of opportunities open to you, 2) get certifications to build up your technical knowledge base, 3) find relevant job experiences that allow you to grow your skill sets, and 4) finally share what you know and build your personal brand.  All of these make you smarter and will help you become a cyber expert.   Thanks again for listening to us at CISO Tradecraft.  We wish you the best on your journey as you Learn to Earn.  If you enjoyed the show, tell one person about it this week.  It could be your child, a friend looking to get into cyber security, or even a coworker.  We would love to help more people and we need your help to reach a larger audience.  This is your host, G. Mark Hardy, and thanks again for listening and stay safe out there.
