Era una boa constrictora que la señora llamó a Betty. Luego de un tiempo viviendo con ella, la llevamos al veterinario pensando que estaba enferma porque no estaba comiendo. Entonces el doctor le hizo algunas preguntas:- ¿Dónde duerme normalmente la serpiente? -En mi cuarto -respondió la señora. - ¿Usted juega con ella? - preguntó el médico.- ¡Si, juego mucho con ella! La amo, y Betty me ama; incluso algunas veces duermo con ella -dijo la señora muy emocionada.¿Ha despertado alguna noche con la serpiente extendida en su brazo? -fue la tercera pregunta del veterinario.-Sí-respondió ella-, justo me pasó eso la otra noche. Finalmente, el doctor dijo:-Le tengo una buena noticia y una mala. La buena es que su serpiente está perfectamente sana; y la mala es que ella esta tratando de comersela. Ha dejado de comer para hacer espacio en su estómago, y se está estirando.Una serpiente siempre intentará atacar, de la misma manera como el diablo siempre trata de destruirnos. Trata de destruir tus amistades, tu familia, tu futuro. Quiere que recibas la influencia de cosas negativas que destruyen tu mente para que de esa manera no desees obedecer a Dios.Imagina si el enemigo se te apareciera tal cual es para tentarte a desobedecer la ley de Dios. ¡Pienso que saldrías corriendo de miedo! ¿Cierto? Pero él se nos aparece de maneras nuestras atractivas, de formas que llaman atención, y nos hace creer que lo malo no es tan malo.¿Sabes? Estamos en guerra y hay un enemigo que quiere el control de tu mente y tu vida. No puedes ganar esta batalla, necesitas de Jesús, y la única manera de obtener la victoria es pasar tiempo con él cada día y ser obediente a su Palabra. No tengas a la “serpiente Betty" cerca tuyo. Aléjate del mal y obedece a Dios ¡siempre! Nina

Are our leaders manipulating chaos to gain power? | Tony Shaeffer

The Hard Question with BQ

When chaos abounds, our attention is scattered. We have plenty of it! Ukraine, Title 42 about to end, our Southern borders erupting, the shocking leak of a document that could overturn Roe vs. Wade causing protests, more protests, and more protests. People are angry! Americans are turning against Americans. The issues are monumental: Parents fighting to reclaim their parental rights, freedom of speech and religion vilified -- some want them nullified and some cry that the Constitution is irrelevant. Of course, there is that pesky problem of the economy moving closer to the edge of a steep cliff. Many fear we are at the tipping point. What is in plain sight that we are missing? A solution? BQ is joined by Lt. Col. (Retired) Tony Shaeffer, President of the London Center for Policy Research to discuss. Tony Shaeffer is a New York Times bestselling author and CIA-trained intelligence operations officer with over 35 years of experience in global and national security. In his think tank work he has been adviser to senior members of the White House, the intelligence community, Pentagon and key members of Congress.

Join us this week for our interview of Dr. Robin George Andrews.  Robin George Andrews is a freelance science journalist based in London. His work has appeared in National Geographic, The New York Times, The Atlantic, Scientific American, Gizmodo, Atlas Obscura and elsewhere. He trained as a volcanologist, earning a doctorate in the subject, but then realized that telling people stories of spectacular eruptions and off-world scientific shenanigans brought him more joy than academia ever could. His upcoming book — Super Volcanoes: What They Reveal about Earth and the Worlds Beyond is out now - go buy a copy!I must admit, it took Jesse and I a while to realize that the book is called Super Volcanoes - two words.  In other words, all volcanoes are super.  Most volcanologists strongly dislike the term Supervolcanoes - one word, that is typically used to describe Yellowstone National Park.  Robin has a huge personality which made for a very fun interview.  We talked about Hawaii, Yellowstone, deep ocean volcanoes, Tonga, and Marie Tharp to name just a few.  Tune in to get all the details.  You won't be disappointed.——————————————————Instagram: @planetgeocastTwitter: @planetgeocastFacebook: @planetgeocastEmail: planetgeocast@gmail.comWebsite: https://planetgeocast.buzzsprout.com/

— Larry Ackerman's journey began as a very young child on a cold and unforgiving operating table in a hospital in New York City. He thought he would die, he thought something was wrong with him, but what Larry would discover is more powerful than anything he could have ever imagined, the power of identity. Larry is the author of the ground-breaking book, The Identity Code, and today he shares with us how to figure out the most important question in your life., WHO AM I? Your identity: Your uniqueness and the potential it holds. You've probably thought about how identity affects the success of your organization, or even your own. And you've probably wondered about what makes you — or your company — distinctive and why that matters.

"Don't sell your soul because you can't buy it back. Selling out is something I just can't do."My guest this week is Justin Fornal and I'm incredibly lucky to have him. He's someone who has lived and continues to live such an exciting and technicolour life that he very much resists categorisation. To describe Justin as an international explorer, cultural detective, award winning writer, filmmaker, culinary celebrity, and extreme athlete is about as close to the mark as you'll get. In 2018 Men's Journal simply ranked him as the #3 most adventurous person in the world. As a cultural detective, in search of secret societies, lost rituals and ancient talismans, he has travelled to the far corners of the earth, living with hunter-gatherer tribes, meeting with witch doctors who (still to this day) believe in human sacrifice, and taking part in ritual exorcisms, so just be aware that some parts of our conversation are not for the squeamish or faint-hearted.   Everywhere Justin goes, he always sets off with a deep respect for each culture that he interacts with, and sharing whatever he finds with integrity and a real commitment to the truth of a place, not adherence to institutional narrative. He is the Co-Founder of the History, Arts, & Science Action Network (HASAN) a non-profit organization that focuses on relic repatriation, historic justice, and documenting vanishing cultures. He's also the co-host of TV show UNEXPLAINED AND UNEXPLORED, alongside one of my previous guests Emiliano Ruprah, a show that has been airing on the Discovery Channel and Science Channel since 2019.Justin has also written extensively for National Geographic, VICE, The Explorers Journal, and Parts Unknown. I strongly recommend you read some of his articles which I've linked to below. He is also an extreme open water swimmer and having swum 100 miles around the Whisky Island of Islay on Scotland's freezing West Coast, he is currently planning the longest unassisted swim in history for Summer 2022.  The GREAT ARCTIC SWIM will be the first attempt to swim from Canada to Greenland across the Nares Strait. Truth is, unless there's a documentary made about his life, I'm not sure one CAN do Justin Fornal justice. The sheer depth and breadth of his experience makes keeping pace with him an impossible, yet very very enjoyable and joyous task. He truly is larger than life and a real polymath in every sense of the word. We start the conversation with him lighting up one of his rare pipes collected on his travels, before journeying through his culinary, cultural, and sporting adventures in that order. I hope that you find this conversation as interesting as I did.Links:https://justinfornal.com/articlesIG: @justin_fornalhttps://greatarcticswim.com/Weird Homes, Atlas ObscuraHome of the podcast:Coaching & Speaker Profile: www.michaelxcampion.comLinkedIn: @michaelxcampionIG: @michaelxcampion

This episode is a unique experience with California governor candidate Reinette Senum. Why should you care? So much of it has nothing to do with politics and you may be surprised by how the election in California will impact you no matter where you are in the world. Whatever side you lean on, we have a woman who is courageously running with no party affiliation to truly serve the people of California. This conversation is refreshing, but also confronting and challenging. It will cause you to want more and it may spark something in you that you didn't even know was alive.    ------------------ The Be You podcast is hosted by certified girl boss Jill Herman, a champion of women's empowerment, personal development, women helping women, and being yourself without apology. Each episode features Jill's experiences with personal development and her journey to being yourself, sometimes featuring guests who are prime examples of women helping women.    Being a girl boss no longer just refers to achievement in the workplace. Personal development and prioritizing being yourself are key ingredients in the women's empowerment movement. Jill has built a community of women helping women so that each one can reach their full potential as the badass girl boss they are.    Whether you're already a champion of women's empowerment, you're a girl boss interested in personal development, you'd like advice on being yourself, you're looking for a community of women helping women, or you're just here for Jill's lessons and entertainment, the Be You podcast is for you.  ------------------   Reinette Senum is a natural born leader. She has traveled to nearly 60 countries and has an incredible ability to connect to those around her no matter where she is or who she is speaking with. In 1994, she crossed Alaska by herself. It would be during this isolated winter solo trek when she filmed for National Geographic that she learned, of all things, the power of community. Ultimately, lessons learned along the trail would become the catalyst for her community work later in life. She has protested against corruption and greed for decades. She has twice served as mayor and city council member of her hometown Nevada City, California where she served with integrity regardless of how difficult the political landscape was. It was during the summer of 2020 that Reinette chose to step down from her third term on the city council because she saw a deep need for leadership at a much larger scale than she could provide in her small town. Reinette is currently running for California governor with no party affiliation.   Connect with Reinette Senum Elect Reinette Website Twitter LinkedIn Instagram ------------------   Lisa Bilyeu on women's empowerment:  “Cheer for your girls like you got pom-poms at a pep rally.” - Lisa Bilyeu    Lisa Bilyeu on women helping women:  “Choose your life's board members like you're building a Fortune 500 company.” - Lisa Bilyeu    Lisa Bilyeu on being a girl boss:  “Be brave.

"When are we all going to start to care about one another? Because all of our individual choices do have impacts. And I just think the demands that we place on this planet, on the ecosystems, are what are driving conflict and human suffering. In some cases, it's really the scarcity of resources, just like water. In others, it's the changing climate and the loss of fertile lands to be able to grow food. But in the end, it's always the people living in these places that really suffer the most. All of my work today, it's not really about wildlife, and it's not just about people either. It's about how deeply interconnected all of those things are.

Agostino Petroni is a journalist, author, economist, gastronome, and 2021 Pulitzer Center Reporting Fellow. His work appears in National Geographic, BBC, The Atlantic and many more. I first came across it in Reasons to be Cheerful, the terrific news outlet founded by one of my all-time favourite musicians and producers, David Byrne. That outlet is part of a growing movement sometimes called ‘solutions journalism'. Though you might just call it good journalism. And Agostino's article that first caught my eye is a great example of that – outlining a terrific success story so relevant to some of the pioneering efforts – and vital needs - we've heard about in this podcast. One of the most fascinating and popular stories on the podcast was featured in the 100th episode under the title Wanted Land Doctors. I've had many interesting exchanges in the wake of that episode, including with a listener in the eastern states who shared stories of goats being used by public agencies to reduce fire fuel loads after the horrific Black Summer fires here in Australia. It turns out that the Mediterranean region has created some great models in this mould, that are successfully getting people back on Country, with communities and their livelihoods reinvigorated, and trajectories of mega-fire, extinction and polarised politics reversed. In the first half of this episode, we talk about Agostino's unexpected personal journey into the work he does, his formative film-making journey to Latin America, and this phenomenon of so-called ‘solutions journalism'. In the back half, we delve into some of the incredible stories he's found, principally that piece from Reasons to be Cheerful, and the patterns we've observed. This conversation was recorded online with Agostino at home in Puglia, Italy, on 3 May 2022.

She has lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit— keeping true to her belief in the importance of “living the story.”Ami is an Ambassador for Nikon and a contract photographer with National Geographic magazine. She has documented wildlife and poaching in Africa, covered human-wildlife conflict, and concentrated on efforts to save the northern white rhino and reintroduce pandas to the wild. She is a six-time recipient of World Press Photos and published a best-selling book, Panda Love, on the secret lives of pandas. She lectures for the National Geographic LIVEseries, and she frequently gives workshops around the world.After more than a decade covering conflict, photographer and filmmaker Ami Vitale couldn't help but notice that the less sensational—but equally true—stories were often not getting told: the wedding happening around the corner from the revolution, triumphs amidst seemingly endless devastation. As a result, she re-committed herself to seeking out the stories within and around “the story.” Her belief that “you can't talk about humanity without talking about nature” led her to chronicle her journey from documenting warzones to telling some of the most compelling wildlife and environmental stories of our time, where individuals are making a profound difference in the future of their communities and this planet. She is Executive Director of Vital Impacts whose mission is to support grassroots organizations who are protecting people, wildlife and habitats. She is also a founding member of Ripple Effect Images, a collective of scientists, writers, photographers and filmmakers who document challenges facing women and girls in developing countries. She is chair of the Photographers Advisory Board for National Geographic magazine photographers and also a member of the Executive Advisory Committee of the Alexia Foundations Photojournalism Advisory Board. · www.amivitale.com· vitalimpacts.org · www.rippleeffectimages.org · Print sale for Vital Impacts: https://vitalimpacts.org/collections/impact-now· https://newhouse.syr.edu/centers/the-alexia· IG: @amivitale· IG: @vital.impacts · IG: @wild.lifeincolourPhoto of Ami Vitale by Ken Lavazza· www.creativeprocess.info · www.oneplanetpodcast.org
