It's December. In the ministry context it is one of the busiest times of the year. We have parties for every group we are connected with, if we are in a local church, then we all have Christmas assignments we must plan for, people are excited because it's Christmas, and then we have all of our own families to think about in the midst of the scramble. There are so many levels of festivities during this month that we can be moving through them without being able to pause in way that we can really take notice of what we are celebrating. The phrase Thrill of Hope is used at Christmas time in various forms. But what does that mean? The old English definition (for when this song was written) a piercing penetrating desire and expectation of an obtainable good. In order to fully grasp the depths of this type of hope, is to have experienced hopelessness. That is what we are talking about today. We asked Eda Esilaba to sit with us to talk about her own experience. ----- Follow us on Instagram @youthminnetworks ------ Did this conversation resonate with you? We want to hear from you!

Before the rules of REG CF were released, many companies would say they were raising capital through 'crowdfunding'.  Often they were not doing under the proper regulations offered through the JOBS Act or the SEC or their own state's securities regulations.  And, as capital formation methods of REG A+ become more popular, companies may cut corners in what they  say and do, without having the proper paperwork in place.   This puts investors' capital at risk. There could be legal and financial repercussions when a company 'says' they are crowdfunding their capital raise but they aren't doing it within the regulations.  Inside Secret #43 addresses this and in this video/podcast, Karen explains it in more detail.  As 12th and final inside look explanation of a few of the 44 secrets Karen hared shared in her best selling financial how-to book for those savvy investors that want to get started or get better at investing in entrepreneurs:  Inside Secrets to Angel Investing - Step-by-Step Strategies to Leverage Private Equity Investment for Passive Wealth Creation.

Investing through Reg A+ into private companies is not that well known by either traditional stock market investors or angel investors.  Yet it offers pluses for both.   Traditional stock market investors can review financials and company history similar to a publicly traded company, while also getting the benefit of the usual multiple that occurs when investing directly into a private company with high growth potential.   With Reg A+ investments, angel investors may not get the low valuation they are used to as their baseline to generate a large multiple on their investment, but they are able to diversify their portfolio with less risky private equity investments that have increased odds of success of great gains than traditional stocks.  As 10th in this limited series, Karen Rands explains select Inside Secrets of the 44 shared in her best selling financial how-to book for those savvy investors that want to get started or get better at investing in entrepreneurs:  Inside Secrets to Angel Investing - Step-by-Step Strategies to Leverage Private Equity Investment for Passive Wealth Creation.

Uber Technologies Inc is a technology company that offers ride-hailing services to its platform users. The company uses its algorithms to connect passengers to their pool of registered Uber drivers to use their transportation services in exchange for payment. Today, Uber counts over 14 million trips each day in more than 60 countries. Uber have now also expanded to boat travel and Uber Eats food delivery services. One of the questions which has been posed over the years is whether drivers are self-employed or employees. The Supreme Court held that drivers must be treated as employees with holiday pay and minimum wage. This is important for anyone bringing a claim against Uber drivers, who would look to a claim against Uber as being vicariously liable for the actions of their drivers rather that pursuing claims against drivers directly. In London, Uber secured its right to continue operating after a Judge upheld its appeal against TfL. TfL had rejected Uber's application to be granted a new licence over safety concerns in 2017. One of the main concerns raised by TfL was a flaw in Uber's system that allowed unauthorised people to upload their photographs to legitimate drivers' accounts, which then allowed them to pick up passengers. This ‘flaw in the system' allowed Naveed Iqbal to use his brother's Uber login details to use the app as a driver. He was alleged to have sexually assaulted two women in Leeds in 2015. Both women have recently reached a five figure settlements with Uber, after Uber were found liable for the incidents as it had a duty of care to protect passengers. Iqbal lost an appeal in 2017 to keep his own private-hire licence when a crown court heard no charges had been brought, but a judge said he had carried out the attacks “on the balance of probabilities”. In 2018, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said TfL was "absolutely right" not to renew Uber licence but acknowledged the company had "made improvements". Alarmingly, that same year, more than 3,000 Uber passengers and drivers reported sexual assaults. The ‘improvements' in Uber's way of handling the widespread problem may have been triggered by the accusation Uber faced in the US, trying to force women who say they were sexually assaulted by drivers to resolve their claims behind closed doors through arbitration rather than in courts. Similarly, Uber was fined $59m (£43m) for refusing to disclose details of more than 1,200 alleged victims of sexual assault involving its drivers in California between 2017 and 2019, justifying it would be a ‘shocking violation of privacy' for victims. The California Public Utility Commission (CPUC), which imposed the fine, said it did not require a public disclosure of the information, and the details of individual cases would have been kept private. In July 2021, Uber has agreed to pay a reduced fine of $9 million to the California Public Utilities Commission. Uber will now provide anonymised data about the assaults to the Commission. With the aim of ‘standing with survivors', Uber voluntarily published the US Safety report that discusses safety issues. They claim they understand that business leaders such as Uber have a unique opportunity to address the widespread problem of sexual assault and harassment, not only by acknowledging and assessing the issue but also by responding appropriately when incidents occur. “Uber has emerged as a leading partner in standing against sexual assault – not just through accountability and transparency, but also by supporting survivors, eliminating barriers to reporting, and taking steps to prevent violence and harassment. We call on other companies to follow Uber's lead by partnering with anti-violence organizations and releasing their own reports.” - Cindy Southworth, Executive Director, National Network to End Domestic Violence The safety team at Uber has tripled since 2017 and there are more than 300 professionals now dedicated to safety. Uber has been testing different features and reports various improvements: Allowing riders to verify their driver with secure PIN code Enabling for a text message to directly be sent to 911 operators (in the US) and report safety incidents to Uber before the trip is even over. Improvement of drivers' background checks and screenings Feature ‘share my trip'/ ‘follow my ride Sexual assault claims have not just been limited to Uber. Lyft was also sued by 19 women in December 2019. The platform has been accused as not doing enough to prevent sexual assaults by drivers on the platform, and not investigating complaints properly. Since March, the two ride-hailing firms agreed they will put aside competition and partner to share data on drivers who have been banned from their platforms in the US for serious safety incidents, including sexual assault and physical assaults resulting in a fatality. However, the lack of comprehensive background checks coupled with inadequate investigation of customer complaints involving sexually inappropriate behaviour by drivers still puts thousands of men and women at risk. Only in June 2021, did a video surfaced of a woman in Australia who filmed her uber driver relentlessly pestering her for sex. Statistics obtained by The Sun revealed Uber drivers were accused of 32 rapes and sex attacks on London passengers over the past year, this is equal to one every 11 days. The figures represent more than a fifth of all claims against taxi and car-hire drivers filed to 14 UK police forces last year, which totalled at 154 allegations including attacks in minicabs and chauffeur vehicles As many of the cases brought forward have been settled behind closed doors, many consumers continue to use such services with no knowledge of the potential dangers. We would expect as the consumer that these individuals have been through an extensive vetting process. We encourage anyone who has concerns about sexual abuse to get in touch.

The polls show a close race, but the inability to pass meaningful economic legislation in Congress could negatively affect voter enthusiasm for the ruling party.Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss the supply chain. Supply chain problems show no sign of abating, and many analysts predict that the issues will worsen and bring increased inflation. Dr. Horne discusses the neoliberal system that has been exposed by completely closing and reopening a system that can't handle backups and sudden increases in demand.Jack Rasmus, professor in economics and politics at St. Mary's College in California, joins us to discuss the economy.

Please Leave a Review!   THIS EPISODE COUNTS FOR CE! - but read the disclaimers it might not count for your state. Go here to take the test and get your free CE Credit! Andrea Hight, Area Sales Manager for Software/Technology at Henry Schein One, joins Michelle today for a discussion about the critical role of the hygienist in improving overall health outcomes. With a dental career that boasts a strong focus on public, community health, and DSO dental models, Andrea also serves as a member of the board of directors for the National Network for Oral Health Access, Healthy Smiles for Kids, and the American Institute for Public Health Dentistry. Today, she shares her PowerPoint presentation regarding the importance of hygienists and the standardization of procedures in dental practices.   In this episode, Andrea starts the conversation by discussing the various roles she has taken on in the dental space, and then begins her presentation by looking at the triple aim of healthcare and how hygienists connect better with, and are less intimidating to, patients. She goes on to review the positive impact dental assistants bring to clinics and practices by saving time and bringing about increased revenues, and finishes off with a discussion about the importance of standardization and inventory management.   EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS:   Interview starts: 8:48     -   Andrea's dental career -   What is the triple aim of healthcare? -   The important role of the hygienist in connecting with patients -   How dental assistants bring increased revenue to practices -   Comparing the single column schedules with and without dental     assistants -   How to manage the work environment to boost productivity -   The global treatment paradigm -   5 benefits of standardization -   Why you need an actual patient flow -   The importance of inventory management   QUOTES:   “I'm simply very passionate about the importance of oral health as part of overall health.”   “We're looking at making the patient experience more meaningful, making doing so cost-effective, and helping the patients become healthier at exactly the same time.”   “You've got great skills, why squander those skills when you can really enhance the impact you can have?”   “Patients often find the hygienists to be less intimidating than the dentist, which supports more open communication, relationship building, and divulging of important health information."   “DryShields do not replace dental assistants.”   “The end result of good planning with workflow in a dental assistant is you get to see more patients, you get to give them focused care, and the practice or program benefits with increased revenue, which more than offsets the cost of giving you a dental assistant.”   “Chronic little frustrations can be as hard on your system as a big stressor. In fact, chronic little stresses can be harder on you than a big stressor.”   “My first recommendation is that all rooms should be usable for everything. This enables you to adapt.”   “Be intentional about how the patient is from the moment the patient walks through the door into the clinic, through the clinic.”   “Applying evidence-based research and best practices are really valuable when you're determining materials.”   “It's amazing how many instructors are actually not training students to use the product according to the manufacturer's instructions.”   LINKS:   A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast   A Tale of Two Hygienists homepage   AToTH on Facebook   AToTH on Instagram   AToTH on LinkedIn     Andrea's LinkedIn Page   PowerPoint Link

Stalkerware with Eva Galperin

If you've ever had the feeling that someone is eavesdropping on your calls, reading your messages or emails, and even knows where you've been going, you just might be right. Abusers often utilize stalkerware to control and manipulate their targets. Being educated on what it is, how it got there, how to clean it off your devices, and where to go for help can make a world of difference. Today's guest is Eva Galperin. Eva is the Director of Cybersecurity at The Electronic Frontier Foundation. She has worked in security and IT in Silicon Valley and earned degrees in Political Science and International Relations. She has applied the combination of her poli-sci and technical backgrounds to everything including organizing EFF's TOR relay challenge to writing privacy and security training manuals. Those include Surveillance Self-Defense and The Digital First Aid Kit. Show Notes: [1:21] - On her way to law school, Eva began working for Electronic Frontier Foundation and decided not to leave. She has worked in nearly every department. [2:22] - Having worked in tech since a teen, Eva had a lot of experience with stalkerware. But she shares the reason why she was driven to research it further. [4:02] - Through her own research and trials, Eva found that anti-virus apps did not protect against stalkerware. [5:21] - Eva explains how abusers could react to stalkerware being removed from a device and leaves the decision up to the survivor on how and when to remove it. [6:30] - There are companies that are now paying more attention to stalkerware. Eva explains that this is a good thing, but also believes that it is because there has been an increase in the use of stalkerware. [7:24] - The most recent report of stalkerware being detected by antivirus programs indicates a range of 60-95% as compared to only 10% a few years ago. [8:33] - In cases of domestic abuse, an abuser has physical access to a device and can install stalkerware without the survivor even knowing. [10:10] - Spouses and partners having access to each other's devices and knowing passwords is very common in modern relationships. [11:22] - Eva recommends stalkerware detection apps for Android and Apple. [13:01] - Chris and Eva discuss Windows and Mac OS stalkerware. [14:32] - What is the difference between account compromise and device compromise? Eva says the more common problem is account compromise. [16:01] - Eva recommends different and long passwords for each account you have as well as having two factor authorization turned on. She explains how this works. [18:09] - Eva's advice for consumers is to meet them where they are.  [19:13] - You should go into your account settings and look for the page that lists devices and IP addresses that have logged into your account if you feel something is going on. [21:32] - Personal trackers that are meant for people to keep track of their belongings are essentially a gift to stalkers. [23:11] - Regarding personal trackers, Eva shares that she has gotten some pushback on the abuse of these tools. [24:32] - Software that allows you to do this without notifying the user so that they do not know that they are being watched is in and of itself abusive. [26:01] - It is sad to see when people who have been abused feel that the only way they can take back power is to abuse as well. [27:33] - Resetting to factory settings for most forms of device compromise is sufficient but you also need to change your account passwords and disable iCloud backups. [28:51] - Eva loves open source for personal use, but as a general rule she doesn't recommend it due to her security background. [29:52] - If your cameras are compromised, covering the camera is a viable security measure. Covering microphones is trickier. [30:43] - Chris and Eva discuss hackers hacking webcams, using blackmail photos, and sextortion emails. [33:01] - Sometimes the extortion emails can confuse people severely enough to believe the scam. [34:26] - Evan recommends the NNEDV and Operation Safe Escape for those looking for support.

When Kathleen Marie Flynn left for school the morning of September 23rd, 1986 in Norwalk, Connecticut it was just a normal day. But when 3:30 rolled around and punctual Kathleen still wasn't home from school, her mother started panicking. Later that night Kathleen's body is found in the woods. She'd been killed on her way home from school. Police quickly add 23-year-old Marc Karun to their suspect list based on a violent assault he'd committed earlier that year. There were similarities between that case and Kathleen's murder, but police don't have enough evidence to charge him. But this is the 1980's, and DNA evidence is decades away from what we know today. So Marc Karun walked a free man, terrorizing women in the Norwalk community, and spending short stints in jail... until 2013, when Marc Karun moved to a tiny town in the middle of central Maine and made his presence loud and clear... This is a story of a monster who lived amongst us. The story of innocence stolen, and the story of the rise of DNA evidence and the long, winding road to justice. If you or someone you know is a victim of sexual violence or assault and need support, help is available.

The Marine Mammal Center is an organization that specializes in rescuing Marine Mammals along a 600 mile stretch of California Coastline. It's not an easy thing to do; however, the organization has saved thousands of animals over a 45-year period. I was able to be connected to Adam Ratner (bio below) to discuss how the Marine Mammal Center goes beyond rescuing Marine Mammals through its various programs and storytelling. Listen to a few different stories of how the Marine Mammal Center has helped Marine Mammals and inspired people to live for a better Ocean! Background on Adam Adam Ratner began at The Marine Mammal Center in 2009 leading educational programs for high school students and visitors. Over the years, he has challenged people to think differently about ocean conservation using the stories of individual patients that are rescued by The Marine Mammal Center. By providing hopeful stories of action and tangible solutions, Adam helps people find inspiration and empowerment to become the heroes of their own environment and community. Today, as the Associate Director of Conservation Education, Adam serves as an expert on topics related to ocean health, such as climate change, ocean trash and sustainable seafood. His ability to break down big and complex ideas helps people understand how their actions have an impact on the ocean. Adam was named one of the 30 under 30 Game Changers for the Planet by the North American Association for Environmental Education. Working collaboratively across sectors and geographic regions, he serves as the chair of the Training Committee of the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation and is currently the Executive Chair of the Bay Area Climate Literacy Impact Collaborative. He is also a member of the Zero Waste Marin Local Task Force, the Global Ghost Gear Initiative and the Pacific Ocean Aquafarms Stakeholder Advisor Group. Adam has been in the conservation field for over 10 years leading environmental education programming. He graduated from Bates College with degrees in Marine Biology and Psychology, with a focus on animal behavior. He has completed field research and studied animal behavior in labs around the country. His research includes studying bird hearing, as well as fish learning and memory. About The Marine Mammal Center Headquartered on the site of a former Cold War missile base, The Marine Mammal Center is a global leader in marine mammal health, science and conservation, and is the largest marine mammal hospital in the world. The Center’s teaching hospital and training programs operate globally, with its headquarters in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, part of the National Park Service. Expert teams from the Center travel around the world to work with emerging first responders and has itself rescued more than 24,000 marine mammals from 600 miles of its authorized rescue area of California coastline and the Big Island of Hawai‘i. The Center’s mission is to advance global ocean conservation through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, scientific research, and education.
