In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Diane DiResta discuss:The value of speaking both in person and virtually.Common mistakes lawyers make when speaking.Understanding your audience.What to do when you're nervous (and why those nerves are selfish). Key Takeaways:Fit is often about culture, not about a skill mismatch.It doesn't matter if you are a fast speaker, you want to leave space in between - remember the pause. That is where the information you are sharing is going to land with the audience.Speaking is 90% preparation and 10% delivery - the price you charge is for more than the 1 hour of your time to give the presentation.Group things into 3 - it is more memorable. Stories also are memorable and touch the heart. "Speaking is one of the most powerful and cost-effective marketing tools you can have.

In her professional world, Andrea has seen her share of conversations between seniors, service providers, and family caregivers. In particular, when caring for an older adult, she sees how difficult it can be for others to really know what would bring that person joy and satisfaction.Getting to the bottom of what is important to an individual's feeling of independence, happiness, and well-being is often obscured by how we go about those conversations. Where family caregivers may lack training, even professional service providers frequently enter into a dialogue that makes a senior feel embarrassed, disempowered ..or even worse, uninvolved in their own care.Building on her years of nonprofit experience with seniors and their family caregivers, her own experience being cared for, and her understanding of what it means to be vital at any age - Andrea developed THE CARDS I'VE BEEN DEALT™.THE CARDS I'VE BEEN DEALT™ uses a simple card game to gently shape the dialogue between families, care networks - and the individuals they support - to uncover what is truly important to the person. The Cards prompt players to express their wishes and goals in a way that invites conversation among all parties.The goal is to use the three sets of cards to create a Life Plan that uncovers a path to joy and satisfaction in everyday living.Join Andrea and Dorian to learn more about this innovative process that is being used in case management, in hospice care, and with adult children caring for an aging parent.About Andrea Gallagher:Andrea Gallagher, CSA®, is a for-profit and nonprofit corporate leader and change agent. Applying her twenty-five years of executive leadership and transformation experience, Andrea is innovating the senior and caregiver services world today.Ten years ago, Andrea and her husband Peter "adopted" elderly neighbors and acted as caregivers for the couple as well as financial, legal, and medical powers of attorney.

Since then, Andrea has dedicated her professional life to understanding the best practices to assist others in a positive aging experience.Andrea is a Certified Senior Advisor®, Past President of the Life Planning Network, President of Senior Concerns, Life Transitions Chair, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Annual International Positive Aging Conferences, and editor and co-author of LIVE SMART AFTER 50!

206 Dr. Richard Howe and Daniel Ray Discuss Philosophy and Theology [Part 2] What does Athens have to do with Jerusalem? Much in every way, as bad philosophy has made a number of inroads into the Church today, including philosophical assumptions about how scholars and laypersons alike ought to interpret and understand the Bible.

Howe, professor of philosophy at Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, shares with us in a winsome and meaningful way how we need to cultivate a habit of applying sound philosophical and theological thinking to counter the baleful trends besetting our culture today.

Social studies education in Connecticut public schools has been getting a major revamp. It's something we've covered on this program. This includes the statute requiring local Indigenous history that rolled out this year, and a statute in 2022 calling for Asian American and Pacific Islander studies, rolling out in the fall of 2025. The state legislature combined many of these mandates in 2021, calling for a "model curriculum." This curriculum should include Native American studies and AAPI studies, the bill stated, in addition to LGBTQ studies, climate change, financial literacy, military service and veterans, civics, media literacy, the principles of social-emotional learning, and racism. It was a long list and a tall order, and prompted the Connecticut State Department of Education to gather a group of experts on all of these fronts, and construct a new set of social studies standards. This hour, we hear from some of them and preview that document. GUESTS: Steve Armstrong: Social Studies Advisor, Connecticut State Department of Education; Past President, National Council for the Social Studies Tony Roy: President, Connecticut Council for the Social Studies; Social Studies Teacher, Bloomfield Public Schools Dr. Brittney Yancy: Assistant Professor of History and African American Studies, Illinois College Dr. Michael Bartone: Assistant Professor, Central Connecticut State University's Department of Literacy, Elementary, and Early Childhood Education Support the show: http://wnpr.org/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Science offers us a great deal of remarkable insights to the nature of the physical world. From distant galaxies to the DNA in our bodies, the world is replete with God's handiwork. But not everyone sees it this way. Scientists who do not believe in God will often offer explanations for why they think God likely does not exist, but when they do, they are not using the methods and tools of science to do so, they are making philosophical arguments.This week and next on the profile, our guest is Dr. Richard G. Howe, professor of philosophy at Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, conversationally helps us to understand how philosophy and theology go together in equipping us to us discern and respond to the empty philosophy and deceit of our confused postmodern milieu.Richard G.

Episode SummaryAuthoritarianism is on the rise all across the world. Here in America, the leading proponents of anti-democratic ideology are evangelical Christians who have been swept up in the cult of Donald Trump. Driven by a dominator theology and good old-fashioned white supremacy, conservative Christians can be counted on as the leading supporters of dictatorial politics. As Dr. David Gushee writes in his book Defending Democracy From It's Christian Enemies, “Our current democratic crisis reveals a need to revisit the very meaning of democracy…Concerned citizens should care about the direction of movement in their own country. Ours is trending in a bad direction.”And that trend is leading many Christians to embrace what Gushee describes as “Nazified Christianity.” Since the 1960's, much of American public life has been moving toward greater freedoms, greater inclusivity, greater access to power, self-determination, and wealth for underrepresented populations. The Civil Rights Movement, feminist movement, sexual revolution, LGBTQIA movement, and the #METOO Movement have leveled the playing field. And who does that threaten? White, male Christians who are reacting to those new freedoms with violence and extremism. So, how do we work to not only save our democracy from it's Christian enemies, but to awaken our friends and family who have been taken captive by the rise of totalitarianism and the despotism of the Republican Party? This scholarly, yet practical conversation provides you with the resources and tools to have transformational conversations about the politics of Jesus as well as helping to equip you with the action-steps to save democracy during this political season. Bio:Rev. Prof. Dr. David P. Gushee (PhD, Union Theological Seminary, New York) is Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics at Mercer University, and Chair of Christian Social Ethics at Vrije Universiteit (“Free University”) Amsterdam, and Senior Research Fellow, International Baptist Theological Study Centre.Gushee is the elected Past-President of both the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Christian Ethics, signaling his role as one of America's leading Christian ethicists. He is the author, co-author, editor, or co-editor of more than 28 books and over 175 academic book chapters, journal articles, and reviews (see his full academic C.V.). His most recognized works include Kingdom Ethics, and Changing Our Mind. His other most notable works are Introducing Christian Ethics, Still Christian, After Evangelicalism, Righteous Gentiles of the Holocaust, and the forthcoming Defending Democracy from Its Christian Enemies. Altogether his books have sold over 100,000 copies and been translated into a dozen languages.With his works read around the world, and an active lecturing schedule on several continents, he has global impact in the field of Christian ethics. A leader in the growing post-evangelical movement, he has also put feet to his faith in several activist campaigns.David and his wife Jeanie live in Atlanta. He is a classic novel reader, world traveler, and tennis player, and awaits a call from his beloved Atlanta Braves to resume the baseball career he abandoned in college.Please follow us on social media (use the buttons below) and help us get the word out!

New developments in the treatment of mental health challenges have been painfully slow to arrive. Talk therapy, lithium, prozac, electroshock therapy have all developed in the past 150 years. There have been a number of new medications developed but each has its own profile of positive and negative benefits. And few are highly effective (i.e., help more than 50% of the population they are intended to serve). In the past 10 years, however, there have been some noticeable improvements from some unsuspecting sources. These include psilocybin, ketamine, vagal nerve stimulation, Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and MDMA. Tune in to this fascinating conversation with Dr. Rebecca Allen, who heads up the Seattle Neuropsychiatric Treatment Center which is comprised of 5 treatment centers throughout Washington. Recent research out of Johns Hopkins, published in the prestigious journal Nature, found that critical windows of learning were re-opened in mice for 2,3 and 4 weeks depending on which psychedelic drug they were administered (and no, I have no idea how you discover the proper dosage of psilocybin for a mouse!). The mice were given either ketamine, MDMA, psilocybin, LSD or ibogaine. Ketamine kept the social reward learning period active for 48 hours, psilocybin and MDMA opened the critical learning window for two weeks, LSD for 3 weeks and ibogaine opened it for four weeks. This duration aligns loosely with the self-reported after effects of each psychedelic drug in humans. This post-treatment period could offer a valuable window of opportunity for maintaining the learning state. It appears that these drugs impact the RNA and thus, the genetic level, turning on or off genes associated with social learning. So these drugs seem to be impacting at a spiritual level, an interpersonal level, a cognitive level, a neurological level and at a genetic level. It is research such as this (as well as research in larger mammals, i.e., humans) that has heralded a new age in the treatment now called the Psychedelic Renaissance. Topics Covered In This Episode:Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). For which mental health diagnoses is this treatment used? What is its efficacy?Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). For which mental health disorders is this prescribed? What is its rate of success?Ketamine therapy. For what has it been shown to be helpful? Effectiveness rates?Psilocybin (magic mushrooms). What disorders show promising results here? What percentage of the population responds positively to them?Vagal nerve stimulation (VNS). What does this help?MDMA (Street names: ecstasy or molly). What about the recent excitement around MDMA for healing? What disorders are responsive to MDMA? About Dr. John's Esteemed Guest - Dr. Rebecca Allen:Dr. Allen is, among many other things,…Partner & Director of Neuropsychiatry and Research at the Seattle Neuropsychiatric Treatment Center Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington Vice President of the Clinical TMS Society and Past President of theWashington State Psychiatric AssociationFind out more at https://seattlentc.com.If you like what you've heard at The Evolved Caveman podcast, support us by subscribing, leaving reviews on Apple podcasts.

Dr. Turbill recalls her own experiences as a student and how her Latin teacher helped her become a better writer by analysing essays and using them as models.The podcast episode highlights the structured approach used in her book clubs, which involved breaking down the reading and writing process into manageable steps.
