Episode 8 of the Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics series. Curious Corner category. Full list of the topics covered on our website: jaef.foundation/problem-guide-jaef In this episode: We continue exploring the similarities between Quantum Faith and Quantum Physics - how the laws governing Quantum Physics are very similar to the laws governing Quantum Faith and we continue our deep dive into the two pillars of Quantum Faith - The Belief Component (How the Force Field of Faith is built) and The Speaking Component ( how the faith signal is activated with our words). In this series: We explore the interrelationship between our natural world and the spirit world. Both have different laws that govern them and we go on a journey to understand how the fundamental laws that govern natural law are very similar to those that govern the spiritual realm. More specifically, we travel down to the level of the unseen building blocks of the spirit realm and physical world - this world is called QUANTUM! In Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics, we get to understand and explore curiosities such as; the power of words, was our world really created by words? can our words change matter? Can you speak things into existence? Positive and negative confessions, all of this apparently comes down to the existence and understanding of the QUANTUM WORLD. At the Quantum level, things that can't be seen by our natural eyes start to appear, infinite possibilities exist but they can only be brought into reality by the Observer effect in the natural world and by Faith in the spirit realm. Hebrews 11:1 (AMP) says: Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 (AMPC) says: Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. Wow - faith is the assurance…faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses, faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses… And Hebrews 11:3 (AMP) follows with: By faith [that is, with an inherent trust and enduring confidence in the power, wisdom and goodness of God] we understand that the worlds (universe, ages) were framed and created [formed, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose] by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible Turns out Jesus Christ might have known something we didn't when he spoke to the fig tree and cursed it and it died or when he said “All Things are Possible to him that believes..” Scientists are now discovering, that this just might be the case when you look at the world through the Quantum lens. As we tread along in this series of Quantum Faith meets Quantum Physics, our objective is to learn how these two unseen realms - to the natural eye affect and impact our daily lives. We hope this episode blesses your heart. Open up your heart and mind and let's dive in. The host for this episode was Calvin Kabanda.

Doubling Down on Double Standards: British Journalist Mary Ann Sieghart on closing The Authority Gap

Gender bias is everywhere, impacting how we view authority and power around the world. In fact, it's so pervasive—and potentially damaging to organizations—that our guest Mary Ann Sieghart wrote a book about it titled Authority Gap, which explores the critical issue of why women are often taken less seriously than men. This unconscious, double standard behavior affects the C Suite, boardrooms, and conference rooms alike—even the US Supreme Court and UK Parliament. We talk with Mary Ann – journalist, author, non-executive director, and television broadcaster – about why organizations and boards need to change gender bias culture and how to make the critical shift from the top down. It's a thought-provoking conversation well worth the listen for leaders of any gender.   If you want to hear more conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion, you might enjoy these other Redefiner episodes:  Power, Politics and Purpose: Leadership Lessons with Former PM of Australia Julia Gillard From Gillette to Jamba Juice: How to Lead Iconic Brands with Empathy, Purpose & Integrity with James D.

Kathleen opens the show drinking a Cosmic Cowgirl from Diebolt Brewing in Denver. She reviews her weekend in Denver filming her upcoming Amazon Original Special at the Paramount Theatre, which is one of her favorite places to do shows. She talks about eating breakfast at Sam's No3 and hanging out with her good friend and surprise opening act, the iconic George Wallace. “GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Boulder Canyon Classic Sea Salt kettle chips, which she thinks have a terrific crunch. She then samples Dale's Wild West Elk Jerky, and she loves the salty taste. She finishes her tasting with Old El Paso Zesty Ranch Sauce, which she doesn't think tastes anything like Ranch but offers that it might be ok on tacos. QUEEN'S COURT: It has been a quiet week for the Court, but Kathleen shares that her friend Kathe saw Tanya Tucker in North Carolina last weekend and thinks that Queen Tanya's live show is better than ever.UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the opening of ABBA's Voyage avatar concert series in London, another Russian oligarch's super yacht is seized in a UAE creek, Anna Delvey defrauds another “friend,” Elon Musk has issued a back-to-the-office ordinance and “the children” revolt, and the world's oldest man celebrates his 113th birthday in Venezuela. “HOLY SHIT THEY FOUND IT”: Kathleen is amazed to read about the discovery in Alabama of the largest prehistoric cave drawings ever found in North America, and a 2,100 year old farmstead found “frozen in time in Israel. RUSSIAN SUPERYACHTS VANISHING FROM GLOBAL TRACKING: In maintaining her obsession regarding crushing the power of Russian oligarchs, Kathleen reads an article stating that superyachts linked to sanctioned Russian oligarchs are vanishing from global tracking systems in an attempt to avoid sanctions, according to an investigation by The Observer. PROTESTERS GONE WILD: Kathleen continues with her reporting on crazy protesters, reading about 2 recent protest actions: a French Open tennis protester ties herself to the Center Court net during the men's semifinal, and the Mona Lisa was smeared with cake in an apparent climate protest. MAN DRESSES AS COLLIE TO BECOME A DOG: Kathleen is baffled reading an article about a Japanese man who spent more than $15,000 to fulfill his dream of transforming into a four-legged animal. The man, known only by his Twitter username, Toco, spent 2 million Japanese yen, or about $15,700, to create a lifelike rough-collie costume that he could inhabit.POST OFFICE VACANCY IN ANTARCTICA: Kathleen thinks she knows a few Termites who would jump at the chance to take a job running the world's most remote post office in Antarctica. The post is at Port Leroy, and responsibilities include counting penguins and running the gift shop. MCDONALD'S AND STARBUCKS LEAVE RUSSIA: Kathleen reads announcements that McDonald's is leaving Russia, with the stores being sold and will continue to operate under a new proposed brand name called “Fun and Tasty.” She also reads that Starbucks is leaving the Russian market, following McDonald's move. GALLERY OWNER CHARGED WITH COUNTERFEIT ART SALES: Kathleen loves the fine art world, and is enthralled with an article about a Florida gallery owner who has been charged with selling fake Banksy, Warhol, and Basquiat paintings to rich Palm Beach buyers.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1731 Birth of Martha Washington (books about this person), the inaugural first lady of the United States. At Mount Vernon, Martha was in charge of the kitchen garden. As mistress of the plantation, she was in charge of entertaining guests and planning the evening meal. This meant that a robust kitchen garden was an absolute necessity. Thus, the kitchen garden is the oldest garden at Mount Vernon. It was installed in 1760, and the grounds have produced edibles now for over 250 years. So while other areas of Mount Vernon have gone through some changes, the kitchen garden or the lower garden remains primarily unchanged from how it was initially used back when the Washingtons lived there. Now George and Martha spent a great deal of time away from the estate. And whenever George Washington would send letters back to Mount Vernon, the last paragraph was reserved for instructions from Martha to the gardener about the kitchen garden. Martha would ask about different crops and suggest planting or collecting seeds. Martha really was a knowledgeable plantswoman, and when it came to the kitchen garden, she was not afraid to make suggestions or changes. Martha knew that the kitchen garden was a reflection of her As George's wife and as the president's wife. And when George and Martha were at Mount Vernon, they hosted an average of 600 guests every single year. And most of those people enjoyed supper at the plantation, and the meal No Doubt featured produce from the kitchen garden. William Spence was the gardener at Mount Vernon. He continued working at Mount Vernon after George Washington's death. In addition, William was s a witness to Martha Washington's will, which he signed on September 22, 1800.   1874 On this day, Ann Pamela Cunningham, founder of the MVLA, gave her farewell address MVLA stands for the Mount Vernon Ladies Association, which was founded in 1853. In 1858, less than five years later, this group of indomitable women purchased Mount Vernon from the George Washington family. By so doing, they saved George Washington's eighteenth-century plantation home from development or destruction. Together with encouragement from tourists, the MVLA worked to restore the home and grounds to their full glory.  Ann spoke of the need for continued work in her address: Ladies, the home of Washington is in your charge see to it that you keep It the home of Washington!  Let no irreverent hand change it; let no vandal hands desecrate it with the fingers of "progress"!  Let one spot, in this grand country of ours, be saved from change. Upon you rests this duty.   Today we can say definitively that Ann's advice was followed. Washington's home is in top condition along with the outbuildings and the grounds. The greenhouse, which was in a fire in 1835, was fully restored in 1952. To preserve Washington's view of the Potomac, the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association purchased nearly 500 acres on the other side of the Potomac River, thanks to Mrs. Frances Payne Bolton. The latter ended up organizing one of the country's earliest land trusts. When it came to Mount Vernon, George Washington always dreamed of a fine landscape and beautiful gardens. Many enslaved people and trained gardeners made his dream a reality. George hired his first gardener in 1762. A decade later, he posted an ad that said, "a good Kitchen Gardener is what I want." After seeing the one that Margaret Tilghman Carroll installed at her home, Mount Clare, near Baltimore, George added a greenhouse. In turn, Margaret sent the plans and some plants to help the Washingtons christen their greenhouse. In 1799, one guest at Mount Vernon wrote, "[There] I saw ...English grapes, oranges, limes, and lemons... as well as a great variety of plants and flowers... exquisite in their perfume and delightful to the eye..."   1893 On this day, a witty, thoughtful, and upright citizen of South Yarmouth, Massachusetts, Stephen Sears wrote in his journal about his garden.  Stephen kept a journal for posterity, and nature entries are sprinkled throughout his writings in between notes on work, worship, and family.  Stephen was a Sunday School teacher, and he wrote that he thought it was "the best thing I can do for the coming generation." On this day in 1893, Stephen was 71 years old. He built a cage around a tree and burned caterpillars. He must have thought them destructive (maybe tent caterpillars?) That spring, he had "plowed [the] garden and planted peas."   On June 6, he noted that "summer is here, hot and dry," and then he "transplanted [his] tomato vines and hoed [his] watermelons." Almost every day, Stephen worked in his garden. He watered daily and occasionally added seaweed as a fertilizer. On June 17, after three weeks of no rain, Stephen wrote, "The ground is wet again, and vegetation smiles."  At the end of the month, he was clearly frustrated with one particular garden pest: potato bugs. Stephen wrote,  If I were to offer [a] sacrifice to the Devil it [w]ould be potato bugs in Lager Beer. .   2003 On this day, an Iraqi scientist named Mahdi Obeidi led US officials, including David Kay, out to his rose garden.  Over a decade earlier, in February of 1992, Uday Hussein had told Mahdi Obeidi to hide all the evidence of Iraq's efforts to pursue a nuclear program. So Mahdi gathered up his documents and prototypes and packed them in a fifty-gallon drum. Then Mahdi buried the drum beneath a lotus tree in his backyard. The entire stash remained there undisturbed until America declared war on Iraq. Mahdi's story became a book called, The Bomb in My Garden and tells how Saddam Hussein pursued nukes only to be thwarted by his invasion of Kuwait and honorable people in his own government. After the fall of Baghdad, Dr. Obeidi felt it was finally safe to reveal the secret he had buried in his garden, under a lotustree, no less. Lotus trees have a long history and are known scientifically as the Ziziphus lotus.  In Greek mythology, in the Odyssey, the Lotus tree fruit was eaten by the Lotus-Eaters to make them sleepy and to create a false sense of peace and apathy.  It was said Romulus planted a sacred Lotus near the temple of Vulcan and that it was still standing seven centuries later, in the time of Pliny the Elder. The English explorer Richard Francis Burton saw a lotus on his travels through the middle east. The Lotus leaves were used to wash the bodies of the dead, and the fruit was sold as a cash crop to travelers. Today the Lotus tree is used as fodder and for hedges. The thorny branches create an effective barrier. The flowers are a favorite of pollinators of all kinds.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation Where We Bloom by Debra Prinzing This book came out in 2022, and the subtitle is Thirty-Seven Intimate, Inventive and Artistic Studio Spaces Where Floral Passions Find a Place to Blossom. The publisher writes, Step inside the places where flowers come to life. Slow Flowers Society founder Debra Prinzing's new book showcases the beautiful plant- and flower-filled settings of Slow Flowers designers, farmer-florists, and growers. Each environment reflects the personality and aesthetic style of its owner, offering great ideas to inspire the design, organization, and functionality of your creative studio. Visit their spaces and read about their floral passions.   Debra profiles thirty-seven studio spaces for floral aficionados of all kinds in this book. Here's how she introduces Lori Poliski's Woodinville, Washington, modern homestead - a former horse barn converted into a studio with function and beauty in mind: Lori Poliski was a gardener long before she formed Flori, her design studio based in a suburb of Seattle.  She has made posies and arrangements since she was five, drawing from roots that began on a family farm in New Jersey where her mother grew lilacs, peonies, and roses.  Lori worked for a flower shop in the Bay Area after college and later, during a technology career, she continued to design flowers for family and friends' weddings. In 2017, she formalized a business, naming the studio "Flori" ...and rhymes with her name.  Lori said, "My husband designed my first business card and it read: "Garden-style Bowers for small weddings and events." The frustration of producing wedding flowers in a garage filled with sports equipment and bicycles inspired dreams of having a dedicated design space. Lori's solution? A 12-by-24-foot covered storage area at one end of the horse barn where three animals also are stabled. The space now has two sets of white French dooms and windows, which look charming against the blue-gray shingle siding, complete with striped awning, I can only imagine how fun it was for Debra to roam the country scouting these 37 flower-filled locations for her book. All the stories and the people behind these magical spaces are a true joy to discover. If you are thinking about creating or redoing a floral space of your own - a simple she shed or a little corner in the garage or attic, well, then you'll find plenty of inspiration in the spaces profiled in Debra's book. This book is 127 pages of pure eye candy and dreams made real for modern floral artists and creatives. You can get a copy of Where We Bloom by Debra Prinzing and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $9.   Botanic Spark 1962 Death of Vita Sackville-West (books by this author) English author, and garden designer.  In 1960, Vita wrote of her marriage and death: ..now in our advancing age, we love each other more deeply than ever, and also more agonizingly, since we see the inevitable end. It is not nice to know that one of us must die before the other.   Vita died first. Three weeks later, Harold wrote, Oh Vita, I have wept buckets for you.   Vita Sackville-West was a talented and complex woman. An excellent writer, Vita found success as a poet, writer, and broadcaster. After she and Harold purchased Sissinghurst, Vita became one of the most influential gardeners of her time. For over twenty years, they worked together to create a garden where none ever grew before. And for over a decade, she wrote a weekly column about her life as a gardener at Sissinghurst for the Observer. Vita was at once relatable, admirable, witty, and removed.  Vita knew love and loss in her personal life and had relationships with both women and men, but through it, all Harold remained the true north of her heart.  Today the fruit of their labor and their shared dream, Sissinghurst, is beloved worldwide, and Vita's garden wisdom still holds sway.  In her book called The Garden, Vita wrote, I tried to hold the courage of my ways In that which might endure, Daring to find a world in a lost world, A little world, a little perfect world… And in her Poems of West & East, Vita wrote a loving tribute to their efforts at Sissinghurst in a poem called The Garden. We owned a garden on a hill, We planted rose and daffodil, Flowers that English poets sing, And hoped for glory in the Spring. We planted yellow hollyhocks, And humble sweetly-smelling stocks, And columbine for carnival, And dreamt of Summer's festival. And Autumn not to be outdone As heiress of the summer sun, Should doubly wreathe her tawny head With poppies and with creepers red. We waited then for all to grow, We planted wallflowers in a row. And lavender and borage blue, - Alas! we waited, I and you, But love was all that ever grew.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Noah and Vivian listen to a message from one of the first callers to the JPEG2000 Hotline. Noah and Vivian collect a piece by Godmin (incorrectly referred to as Heaven Computer in this episode, which is the name of another one of the artist's projects) from her new project called God Observer. Using the JPEG2000 wallet, Noah and Vivian mint a piece titled ∧⨆∃⨏⊷⋭⋌∉≃⋀≰⨑⨗◯ #1000356. The episode is interrupted by a notification from BeReal, an app that Vivian forced Noah to download. As usual, the conversation turns once again to photography, and it's place within the NFT world. Noah and Vivian collect Shredder #012 from artist Zak Krevitt's project titled Shredders. Shredders is a generative photographic project, in which Zak explores new ways of thinking about photography as well as gender. Speaking of photography...Noah is working on a new NFT project utilizing a motion sensor camera and his chickens. You can keep up with the project on twitter @chickens. Noah says "it's a wild story" how he was able to secure that twitter handle. Do not inquire with him about how because it will certainly be a dull story. JPEG2000 is hosted by Vivian Fu and Noah Kalina. It is sponsored by Context.app, the best way to keep up with what's happening in web3. Have you checked out context yet? It is the very best and you should definitely try it out. The podcast is edited and engineered by Paul O'Mara, who is also a killer video editor. The JPEG2000 music was created by musician Yuri Beats.

Summary Paul Lashmar (Twitter, Website) joins Andrew (Twitter; LinkedIn) to discuss investigative journalism and intelligence. He is a former UK Reporter of the Year.  What You'll Learn Intelligence The similarities and differences between spooks and journalists  The role Watergate played for his generation of journalists  Intelligence overseers as “Ostriches,” “Cheerleaders,” “Lemon-suckers,” or “Guardians” Bellingcat, Spycatcher and the “Zinoviev Letter” Reflections The long shadow of the Second World War Investigative journalism in democratic societies And much, much more… Episode Notes “Cardiac stimulating experiences,” is how this week's guest describes meeting sources in smoky IRA pubs in Belfast all on his lonesome. But he also met sources in the oak-paneled clubs of Whitehall and in many other places around the world. So, what has our guest distilled from his long career examining intelligence agencies? What are the types of relationships spooks and journalists have had with one another? What are the similarities and differences between both tribes? To answer these questions and more, Andrew sat down with investigative reporter and current Head of the Dept. of Journalism at City, University of London, Paul Lashmar. Paul has worked across the media landscape, as a producer for the BBC, as a broadcast journalist with British current affairs television program World in Action, and as an investigative journalist for the Observer newspaper. He won Reporter of the Year in the 1986 UK Press Awards. He is the author of Spy Flights of the Cold War, Britain's Secret Propaganda War, and most recently Spies, Spin and the Fourth Estate.  And… World in Action was a legendary investigative TV program in the U.K. It's programming led to the resignation of a Home Secretary, one of the Great Offices of State in the UK; the release of the Birmingham Six, who were wrongfully convicted of planting IRA bombs; and the exposure of Combat-18, a violent neo-Nazi movement. It would also publish the original story of the Spycatcher allegations that the head of MI5 was a Soviet mole and that there had been a joint MI5-MI6 plot to overthrow Labor Prime Minister Harold Wilson. Paul co-wrote that 1984 episode. For all these reasons and more, it was rarely out of the courts. The last series was broadcast in 1998.  Quote of the Week "They would meet you in an up-market club in the center of London…it's leather Chesterfields, gentleman walking around getting your gin and tonic. It was all of that, in those days it was all informal…there are now in most newspapers, somebody who is usually appointed by the editor who maintains those connections… it's a sensible arrangement." – Paul Lashmar Resources Headline Resource Spies, Spin and the Fourth Estate, P.
