As educators, we sometimes need a spark. One great place to find that inspiration is in movies. In Episode 234 of Class Dismissed, we highlight some of the most inspirational movie scenes for teachers. The movie scenes that made our list include… Stand and Deliver (Rotten Tomatoes Score 82%) Los Angeles high school teacher Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos) is being hassled by tough students like Angel Guzman (Lou Diamond Phillips). But Jaime is also pressured by his bosses, who want him to control his raucous classroom. Caught in the middle, he opts to immerse his students in higher math. In our highlighted scene, Escalante tries to convince his jaded colleagues that they need “ganas,” which translates to desire. School of Rock (Rotten Tomatoes Score 91%) Overly enthusiastic guitarist Dewey Finn (Jack Black) gets thrown out of his bar band and finds himself in desperate need of work. Posing as a substitute music teacher at an elite private elementary school, he exposes his students to the hard rock gods he idolizes and emulates — much to the consternation of the uptight principal (Joan Cusack). In our highlighted scene, Finn discovers his students' potential as musicians and his potential as a teacher. Mr. Holland's Opus (Rotten Tomatoes Score 75%) Composer Glenn Holland (Richard Dreyfuss) believes that he'll eventually write a transcendent piece of music, but in the meantime, he's taken a job at an Oregon high school. In our highlighted scene, Holland has a breakthrough with one of his struggling students. Lean on me (Rotten Tomatoes Score 69%) In this fact-based film, a New Jersey superintendent, Dr. Frank Napier (Robert Guillaume), watches helplessly as East Side High becomes the lowest-ranked school in the state. With nowhere else to turn, Dr. Napier enlists maverick ex-teacher Joe Clark (Morgan Freeman) to take over as principal of the declining school. In our highlighted scene, Clark catches some students in the bathroom and challenges them to recite the school song. Their response surprises the hard-nosed principal. Remember the Titans (Rotten Tomatoes Score 73%) In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, an institution revered, each game celebrated more lavishly than Christmas, each playoff distinguished more grandly than any national holiday. And with such recognition comes powerful emotions. In 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all-black school with an all-white school, the very foundation of football's great tradition was put to the test. In our highlighted scene, Coach Herman Boone, played by Denzel Washington, takes his players to a hallowed ground to prove a point. Finding Forrester (Rotten Tomatoes Score 79%) A unique relationship develops between an eccentric, reclusive novelist and a young, amazingly gifted scholar-athlete. After the novelist discovers that the young athlete is also an excellent writer and secretly takes him on as his protégé, they develop an unlikely friendship. As they learn more about each other, they learn more about themselves, and ultimately, with the help of his new mentor, the basketball star must choose the right path. Dead Poets Society (Rotten Tomatoes Score 84%) A new English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams), is introduced to an all-boys preparatory school known for its ancient traditions and high standards. He uses unorthodox methods to reach out to his students, who face enormous pressures from their parents and the school. In our highlighted scene, Keating explains to his students the importance of the arts and self-purpose.

Apple Podcasts | Spotify | TranscriptMore Resources: Free Posing ClassI'm excited to jump into today's topic! It's one I don't talk about much, but a lot of you have asked me. I'm sharing tips on selling prints to your clients. Hopefully this answers things for you and you increase your revenue by selling to your clients! I do have a FREE class for you all about POSING! Most of us are in the thick of sessions right now so this class is timely. I'll be walking through the 6 keys to effective family posing. The best part is you'll be able to apply the contents to your very next session! Ready to have some tips for selling prints to your clients?!Make Prints AvailableI know this may seem like an obvious tip, but you'd be surprised how many photographers are missing out simply because they don't offer it! Most gallery delivery systems have a shopping cart feature where you can set all this up. Basically the system has an auto fulfillment for prints. So, clients can put photos in the cart and order. The orders are placed with the printing lab and delivered white label to your clients so they don't see who you're printing from! So for starters, open up the shopping cart with your pricing, etc.Educate on WhyThis is one of those things that if you don't know, you don't know. We live in a digital age so it's easy for people to just get digitals and that's that. As photographers we should cast vision as to why prints are important! We should paint the picture of the value of prints. There's something special about pulling out an heirloom photo album or having pictures around your home. Having prints gives those in the photo a sense of belonging. However, clients may not think of this off the bat. When you showcase the value of tangible prints your clients are more likely to buy!Talk About What You OfferShow what you want to sell. You've got to excite your clients on social media and advertisement for what you're offering - in this case prints! So, if you're wanting to sell wall art then show them wall art on your social platforms. Give them reason to want what you're selling. Another point to think about is to educate them why they shouldn't print them at shutterfly or costco. We know, as photographers, those types of places have terrible quality. You don't get beautiful heirloom pieces from shutterfly. This is why clients should buy prints from you! But, it starts by talking about it in your content.Pricing PrintsA good rule of thumb to price your prints is to mark up 3x the amount of wholesale. For example, if something was wholesale at $2 then you would mark it up to $6. The reason for this is in the case that you need to replace a print you will still make a profit. If a print gets messed up, which doesn't happen too often, you would need to make it right. By marking up the wholesale you cover those instances without eating up your revenue.Selling prints doesn't have to feel slimy or forced. It should be conversational! Talk about it on your social platforms, educate your clients as to why and at...

Looking at the mileage on the van this morning it looks like we have driven about 20,000 miles promoting this show around the USA. We will be settled here in Vegas for a few months so we can attend various shows on the west coast. This month I will be judging a show for a different federation than the one I judged in NY in September. This will actually be the third federation I have judged for and all three judging styes and criteria are different, which is cool. I love that there are so many different options to choose from in bodybuilding. I think people hear about only one and don't realize there are many more. In addition to judging here on the west coast, my husband and I are hosting booths at shows getting the word out about this podcast and of course my posing business as well. It's been a minute since I've been able to launch one of these episodes but events from this past weekend really sparked the idea for this episode. In fact I was so affected by the events, I woke up in the middle of the night last night with thoughts and ideas, and I had to get up to jot them down in a note. I know if I don't do this, I won't remember them by morning. I will tell you what happened this weekend but first I need to give some background so you will understand why I am going to say that I am absolutely frustrated with bodybuilding. You might recall, when I started competing 20 years ago, I competed in the bodybuilding division. The only other people I knew that competed were my friend Shelley who was the one who inspired me to compete in the first place, Coach John Yobst, and my friend Ann who I met at the John's personal training facility that Shelley went to. That was it. Bodybuilding was exclusive. Because it was hard. Not everyone could do what we do to compete. You have to have massive patience, massive work ethic, and you would NEVER hear someone say that their goal is a pro card their first season. Why? Because bodybuilding required muscle and muscle takes time and patience to build. Bodybuilding was not an everyone gets a trophy sport and it was reserved for us odd balls that enjoyed the challenge. Our reward was a level of self discovery that became life changing. Besides bodybuilding there was the fitness division. If you are over 40 you might remember seeing the fitness division on regular ESPN television. Imagine? Fitness was mainstream. It was broadcasted so the regular family could watch and be entertained by it. These competitions were much more mainstream. Fitness was a huge deal too and there were actual exercise programs on tv that you could follow along and do from home. Back then you didn't have to be an Olympic level gymnast to win a show either. In fact people with zero gymnastic backgrounds won many times. I even had this crazy dream that someday I was going to do a fitness routine to the theme song for the movie Flashdance. Fast forward 20+ years and the female bodybuilding division is tiny. Many shows have maybe 1 entry. Some federations like the OCB got rid of it completely and just have the Physique division. The IFBB removed the pro division from the Olympia only to bring it back a couple years ago after private support and a new owner brought it back to life on the pro level. Fitness, you can't find that division pretty much anywhere on a large scale except the IFBB where you find the same fitness girls that have been competing for the past 10 years plus. You aren't seeing very many new additions to this division at all. Most of the local shows don't even offer the fitness division because there is no demand for it anymore. There is no demand for it because if you watch the fitness routines in the IFBB you will see the level of difficulty and gymnastics skills that these girls have. It's incredible to watch, but definitely not an achievable division for the masses. The only other federation that has a history of the fitness division on a large scale is the Fitness Universe federation. Their presence has moved to a much more international presence so you don't see a lot of people posting about it here in the US. I will be at one of the few large US shows for this federation in Hollywood coming up so I'll let you know how the fitness division looks there today. It's been a minute since I've been to one of their big shows. I give you all of this background so you can understand the evolution of the industry and why I am frustrated with it today, especially after what happened this past weekend. In fact I'm going to give you even more context before I dive into the events from this past weekend. I'm going to share with you FIVE things wrong with bodybuilding today that has created a very dangerous environment…and then share what happened this weekend. For one, Bodybuilding was originally an exclusive sport and you really needed to know someone and get a referral in order to find a coach that understood what it takes to help you prepare for a show. That hasn't changed. Today, bodybuilding coaching, and finding out about bodybuilding shows to begin with, are still built by referral. Except what HAS changed is the WHO people are getting referred to. It's no longer exclusive. There is a reason for this and I'll get to it in #2 coming up. No longer is there a small circle of coaches that work with people. It's literally a free for all today with tons and tons of coaches with the smoke and mirrors of their social media profiles as their only credentials. And since bodybuilding is still a word of mouth sport, the level of trust is much greater when someone is referred a coach. Think about it, no matter what industry we are talking about, if you are given a referral by someone you respect and trust, you automatically feel a level of comfort with that person. If so-and-so says this person is awesome and has worked wonders for them, you are going to feel differently making that call to connect than you would a cold call from an ad. So TRUST has become a problem, because I think a lot of people don't question as much as they should the protocols they are given. They put more trust and faith into their coach because this person came from a referral, or maybe you know him or her from seeing them work with others at your gym, so there is that crowd psychology that happens too. And for financial motives, mass marketing has over-complicated weight loss, nutrition, and exercise and made it seem like this ridiculous undertaking that requires a special diet or workout in order to have any success with obtaining any kind of fitness goal. So now add the mystique of being a bodybuilder and wanting to achieve this mysterious and oh-so-fabulous stage look that is far beyond a regular weight loss transformation, and it becomes an impossible undertaking on your own….so you seek out a coach….by referral….and trust the process. And you should seek out a coach. But never stop questioning the process, especially if something seems off. Second, there has never been any regulation whatsoever on coaching practices so the level of dangerous practices has escalated with no oversight. Coaching is a big popularity contest. Oh I'm with Coach Awesomeness and he is so incredible. What makes him incredible? The list of pro cards? Ok, I'll just come right out and say it. How many of those pro cards were achieved without PEDs? Are you even aware that many, if not most, of these girls are on PEDs to achieve those fast results? Remember my last episode with Dr. Mike T. Nelson about 5 stupid things competitors still do despite basic physiology saying otherwise? Dr. Mike has a phd in exercise physiology, a masters in biomechanics, and is a professor. He has been called in to share his techniques with top government agencies. Good enough for the government, but not for the popularity contest that has become coaching in bodybuilding. The information Dr. Mike shared on that podcast was priceless. But get this…we have less than 1,000 listens to that episode. While the podcasts that are all about gossip on who Chris Bumstead's new coach is will get the tens if not hundreds of thousands of views collectively. So coaches like Mike don't get the visibility and the parade of bro science coaches continues to march on. The Third thing wrong with bodybuilding, is not the new divisions themselves, but what has happened since the addition of new divisions to non drug tested federations that do not require the amount of time to build muscle. Bodybuilding is a sport that has evolved into one where you no longer need the years of preparation to be competitive. I've seen girls who, no joke, started formal exercise for the first time in their life and within 6 months won a pro card. A pro card. The same accolade that a bodybuilder with 10 to 20 years of lifting walks home with. And in many federations, the same amount of prize money too. I'm not talking down on any division, I'm talking complete FACTS and truth with no sugar coating about what is happening in the sport. You want to know the truth, that's what you are going to get here on this show. No bubble gum talk about how everything and everyone is inspiring. There are plenty inspiring stories and inspiring people, but the fact that this industry has become a major business that attracts anyone with a physique transformation is a fact. Which leads me to the fourth thing wrong in this sport, which is that it has become a big business. More divisions with different levels of muscle requirements, means more people able to compete, which means more registrations, which also means more audience tickets, and from a coaching standpoint, means more Pro card opportunities, which also means more client pro cards to use as credentials in their social media profiles. There are coaches that if you look to see what their formal education Is that makes them qualified to coach others you will often see two things. One, they competed. And two, the number of pro card wins their clients have won in total. That's it for credentials. You might find someone with a nutrition certification or a personal training certification too. Bonus if there are additional degrees. One coach in particular that coaches a lot of IFBB pros….I looked for credentials beyond pro card wins and couldn't find ..any. And the fifth thing wrong is that the physiques rewarded in the divisions like bikini and men's physique that were originally developed in bodybuilding-style federations to display just a foundation of muscle, a healthy appearance, a more hot on the beach look, has evolved over the past 5 years in particular to favor a much leaner and more muscular physique. If you are new to bodybuilding you might think that these divisions started in federations like the NPC. They didn't. Bikini and model like men and women's divisions started in places like the Fitness Universe federation, which as you might recall from what I said earlier, was a mainstream federation you could watch on tv. It wasn't a bodybuilding driven federation and there were no such thing as Pro cards. The judging was done by modeling agencies, photographers, and other people in those kind of industries. You didn't win a pro card, no, instead you won magazine covers, modeling contracts, and worldwide exposure. This federation never had a medic on standby for dehydration. There was a medic in case someone got hurt in a fitness routine. The look of bikini and men's modeling and even figure and the more muscular men's divisions was always healthy and the judging factored in marketability, which is why even today, although this federation is more popular overseas than in the US, it's still alive and well and maintains a healthy and achievable look. And still no medic on staff for dehydration. I'm talking about the the changes in The bikini, mens physique, and figure divisions in the other federations that are judged with a BODYBUILDING focus. Fitness Universe has been around for like 40 years and these issues were never present. It's the bodybuilding drive. federations where the issues have come up. Although today's rewarded look is more muscular and leaner than when these divisions were introduced, still achievable without PEDs, maybe not figure in the NPC or men's physique in IFBB, or Figure in the WBFF. Definitely possible in the OCB, WNBF, INBA and such. But here's the problem. The amount of muscle in the drug tested federations is considerably smaller than non drug tested federations. Same divisions. All of these divisions would normally require a few years of training to build the muscle. But there is a major disconnect because what's being promoted on social media by coaches are these drastic transformations in a short amount of time too. And the elephant in the room is that to accomplish this, people are being encouraged to use PEDs and making it seem like they are no big deal. In fact many of these transformations wouldn't be possible so quickly without PED use. Not because the look is unobtainable. It's the time it would take to achieve them without PEDs. Muscle takes time to build. Women's lower bodies don't just erase fat magically. Many don't want to wait a few years to be competitive when they see their friend do one show and win, since again, this sport has become perceived as achievable for everyone. But no one is talking about this. Instead I was listening to a podcast recently where the coach literally said to his audience that you can compete naturally, but competing enhanced makes the process less difficult. So basically the reason a woman should use anabolics and hormone adjusting concoctions is so her prep can be easier. I can't even with this crap. Remember what I said earlier about bodybuilding and how exclusive it was originally because not everyone could do it? Well now you have coaches that say the reason to take things that are potentially body altering is because it will make bodybuilding easier. And my favorite bro science line is the fake reassurance that what they are given is super mild so it's no big deal. Guys, No amount of PED use is without some sort of potential sides. And some of these sides you will be living with for the rest of your life. YOU are. Not your coach. If you know this and don't care, that's fine. I'm not talking about those of you who have lifted for 10-30 years and understand the pros and cons of PED use and choose to go that route fully educated and feeling good about your decision. Even Victor Black, who was my recent guest expert on PEDs also says to get to your genetic potential first before even considering PED use. I'm not talking to you that are in the know except to ask you to share this message I'm sending out to the bodybuilding industry. Let's find those men and women who really need to hear this message. Which leads me to this past weekend and what happened. I was at a local bodybuilding show and six women were treated for dehydration and it was suspected to be due to use of diuretics. They were ALL women. All newer competitors. Again, local show you guys. One was even sent to the hospital. Apparently this women was treated at first, brought back to adequate hydration levels, only for her coach to give her another diuretic, which then resulted in her being sent to the hospital. I thought to myself that I wonder if she died who would be held responsible. Probably not her coach because she willingly took that pill. In fact, there are coaches in the industry who have had a few client deaths under their supervision. They still have a long book of business. The information spread for five seconds and died because of majorly life changing information like Chris Bumstead getting a new coach. So let's review what I said earlier about the 5 things wrong with this sport and then you can decide for yourself who is at fault. First that trust issue. Coach was trusted. Clearly, because she took not one but two pills even after she was treated for dehydration. Whose fault was that? Not so obvious. Second, there is no regulation in coaching practices so the perception of there being a magic peak week protocol runs rampant in our sport when true scientist like Dr Guillermo Escalante who was a guest here recently said it himself that no one needs a diuretic and instead just needs to get leaner. So general acceptance of peak week protocols is a thing in our sport. Third. New divisions created a new sport where competing is achievable for anyone. Bodybuilding is a new sport. It's not for the exclusive anymore. In fact, I saw a girl drunk and high at the same show rolling around on the floor back stage. Fourth bodybuilding is a business, so more divisions, more competitors, means more coaching and attendance opportunities. Do one show and you can now make money being a coach because there is enough competitors to go around. So there is a lot more money pushing attendance at shows, an abundance of posing clinics, and a lot more coaches promoting their services. And 5th is the level of leanness. I was taken back by the level of leanest of competitors at this local amateur show. The stakes have gotten higher in divisions that weren't originally designed to be that shredded …. and from experience, I know that getting shredded requires a level of discomfort mentally and physically. Not everyone can handle that. And it's not going to change. I was talking to a head judge in the IFBB recently and asked about the Leanness. They like lean. And muscle. So there is no turning back. So where do we go from here? I really don't know. I know that the world of bodybuilding is still a sub culture so a lot of things easily get swept under the rug. And that even deaths don't change anything. A posing client of mine did her first local show in Canada and at that show someone actually died. Didn't see any posts about it anywhere. Nothing on the national news either. Did a Google search and found no coverage of it either. Bodybuilding isn't all bad. I talk about the good the bad and the ugly here on this show and this topic is one of those ugly ones. Bodybuilding has transformed me mentally, physically, and I have had the privilege to help men and women find the super star within and bring it out of them on stage at their shows. I'm working with a make bodybuilder that is about to turn 75 and he told me recently that from working with me he has discovered things about himself he never knew. And he has never felt so confident on stage before. I love the self discovery and continuous self improvement that happens with bodybuilding. I don't like seeing people making bad decisions with lifelong consequences that were preventable. I don't like seeing people build poor relationships with their body, mind, and self love. And I don't like seeing people's trust get taken advantage of. The only thing I can do besides work with people one on one or with my classes at learntopose.com is bring these conversations forward and try to reach the masses. I will continue to real-talk with you all here, and ask you guys to share it. I'm glad you are listening and enjoying the messages, but we need to get these messages out to the masses so we can bypass the word of mouth information. If everyone shared this episode somewhere, a group, to a friend, anything, that will help. I'm creating a mass consolidation of info here on this show so that it will be a one stop resource for any competitor, male or female, no matter what level, what division, what federation you compete in. Our industry is divided. Many federations have the attitude that if you aren't with us you are against us too which doesn't help. I almost couldn't have a booth for my posing business at a show because I teach and judge for other federations. I was told at first that the federation only allowed those who are a part of the federation in exclusivity to be a part of their shows. And I was a paying customer promoting my personal business that helps ME make a living. This word of mouth attitude about one federation being better than others is all across our industry. Don't you see how divided this makes our industry and how this affects how information is spread? If you are being told these are the only coaches to listen to, these are the only shows to consider doing, you are not welcome here if you aren't part of our federation, don't you see how that creates a bubble around someone new to competing that keeps them from hearing other perspectives that might be better for them or HELP them? And do you see how valuable information will only continue to be segmented and not issued to people across all federations unless it breaks these industry bubbles and people see the sport as a whole? I am partial to no federation because a bodybuilder is a bodybuilder no matter where he or she competes. And I've competed in 6 federations, coached for pretty much all of them, and coming up I will have judged for 3 of them. So my experience and view on the industry is going to be a lot different than the person that only competes, cares about, or allows their competitors to compete in one federation. Or only teaches one division. And only women. Or only men. And my perspective will be without the industry popularity contest nonsense. You will continue to learn the good the bad and the ugly across all federations and I will not sugar coat the truth to make friends. As an athlete wouldn't you want to know all of your options? Wouldn't you want to know dangers, warning signs, pros, cons and things of the such when you are pursuing something that could legit harm you? Or things that could help you become freaking awesome in this sport? Super successful without the harm to your health? On a side note, at a recent show, It was eye opening how many people shunned the flyers with info on my posing business, learntopose.com, we handed out. It's cool, I get it, that not everyone wants help, and I'm not trying to say if you didn't grab a flyer you are a dick. I'm talking about the attitudes we got and how those were more surprising than anything. The attitude like, they didn't even want to consider another perspective. Hand up, talk to the hand. Why this doesn't make sense to me me is that bodybuilding is an individual sport, not a team sport, so improvement should be self motivated. Let me give you a comparison to think about. As you might recall in addition to my professional posing business for all divisions and federations, I've been a real estate broker and agent for 17 years. I remember going to real estate conventions and everyone there was wearing the colors of their real estate firm and proudly stating what company they are with. But everyone stopped at booths to hear about how they, an individual, can get better at real estate. Everyone. Why? Well there's money involved with real estate. These realtors didn't say, “well my real estate firm knows everything so I don't need to hear anything more about what I can do to improve.” No, they were hungry to improve because they were hungry to make money. Real estate is also an individual profession where you are a part of a company, but you are your own business within it. Like in bodybuilding you can be a part of a team, but at the end of the day, it's not a team sport. Similar. Your trophies are stored in your home. If you earn prize money, YOU take it home. Plus to be successful in real estate, which is also, like bodybuilding, a word of mouth industry, you are reliant heavily on referrals. Do you see how similar this is? Here's where the similarity send. In real estate, you can make a lot of money if you learn new tactics and strategies. In bodybuilding, will you earn more money if you hear a new perspective? Nope. In fact you might earn ZERO money your entire career in bodybuilding. Unlike in real estate you really don't earn money at all in bodybuilding. Instead, you spend a helluva lot and walk away with a plastic trophy, a line item in your social media profile, and super market flowers as my friend Kim says. My goal in all of this is for you to not end up on a hospital gurney rushed to the hospital for something preventable. To not make decisions you will regret for the rest of your life. To not get caught up in the high school popularity show and focus on doing what's best for you. I want you to walk away with self love, confidence, and looking and feeling like a champion. I need your help to spread the word. All right guys I think that's enough of a rant for today don't you think? Thank you again for listening! I have a really great new series that I'm starting beginning next week where I am profiling each of the Federations one episode at a time. I think you guys are really gonna love this. My first interview for this new series will not disappoint. In the meantime head over to learntopose.com if you want a free assessment on your Posing and a roadmap on how to get better, and dare I say, awesome at it. It's free so head on over. And as always please share this podcast in all of your Facebook groups and all of your friends so we can get the word out there. I appreciate you very much and will talk to you again soon.

Fake German heiress, Anna Sorokin conned her way into Manhattan society. Posing as Anna Delvey, a German heiress, she swindled banks, hotels, and friends out of more than $200,000 dollars. She forged checks to get money from banks and charmed people into paying for extravagant meals, and travel. Sorokin was convicted on a handful of grand larceny and theft of services charges. After serving her time, the 31-year-old released from prison, now, fighting being deported, but again Sorokin falls on her feet. She landed a deal with Netflix for the rights to her life story, and now Sorokin is selling her artwork.

Pregnant with PromiseWe first meet Sarah and learn of her barrenness in Genesis 11. The conception of her son, Isaac, does not come until Genesis 21. The chapters in between represent 39 years of waiting. Today, a woman's “success” is not measured by the fruitfulness of her womb, although infertility is painful for any couple longing for children. In Abraham's day, an empty cradle was shameful. And then Sarah's hopeful expectation became the silent cynical laugh heard by God. God hears the pain no one else does, including yours.Because of famine in Canaan, Abraham fled to pagan Egypt. As a stranger in a land that did not honor God's laws, his fear was understandable. He recognized that Sarah's beauty would attract unwanted attention from the locals. His concern was not so much about her safety but more about his as her husband. If an Egyptian wanted her for his harem, he would have no problem killing Abraham. Posing as her brother made Abraham less of a threat. Since Abraham had not had the benefit of marriage counseling that instructed him to love his wife as Christ loved the Church, even to the point of laying his life down, lying seemed logical. And over the years, the helpmeet wife of the Garden had become more of a slave wife, required to do as the master commanded. Many people today, men and women, would have a few unrepeatable words for Abraham. Abraham devalued Sarah to save himself. But it would be hard for Sarah not to have thought less of herself anyway, living with the label of barren. Society's expectation for her was fruitfulness. She had failed. After years of trying to get pregnant, what humiliation to offer her maid's womb to Abraham. Only God could know the depth of her dissatisfaction, anger, rejection, loneliness and hopelessness. And then Sarah was pregnant. She knew, Abraham knew and everyone knew that it was impossible for her to bear a child at her age. And yet it became evident as her abdomen protruded more and more. And then her mourning turned to joyful laughter as she cradled baby Isaac—her own sign and wonder, the promise of God.Questions to Ponder: What longtime request has God granted in your life? What emotions did you experience when hoped-for became reality?

In April of this year, in Yorktown, Virginia, a 12-year-old boy named Sean Daugherty got off the bus and walked home after school. Excited to find out he would be responsible for watching his 2-year-old brother for a few hours until his older sister got home from school, he finished his homework, made his favorite snack and went about doing his chores before he set his brother up on the iPad and started to play video games with friends. Sean never ate his favorite snack, never finished his chores, never set up his brother on the iPad and never logged on to play Fortnite with friends.When Sean's sister came home a few hours later, she found Sean dead. Hanging by a drawstring cord tied loosely around his chin, suspended from their backyard playset. He was dressed in his stepfather's clothes and his glasses were broken and discarded by the patio door. Ignoring so many suspicious things, the police called it a suicide. It was not. IT. WAS. NOT.This is the most important episode True Crime in the 50 Podcast has ever produced.

Sharon and Susan talk with “Scarecrow & Mrs. King's” one-and-only “Francine Desmond” – actress Martha Smith. Our conversation covers everything from her early days as a model for the Ford Motor Company to her “National Lampoon's Animal House” adventures and finally to working on the show she first knew only as “The Secret Kate Jackson Project” – we'll find out why Martha Smith truly is the “Gal With All The Luck”! Along the way, we'll discuss…- Brunching with John Belushi! Touring with Rod Stewart!- Posing for Playboy Playmate of the Month!- The “other” spy show that almost happened: “Ebony, Ivory and Jade” (1979) with Bert Convy and Debbie Allen.- Creating comedy magic with Kate Jackson in Martha's all-time favorite episode, “Life of the Party."- The shelved script from Season 2 (“A Matter of Choice”) that was dusted off for the end of Season 4 – and finally gave Francine a boyfriend - and an apartment!- Francine's on-screen adventures in Europe – and Martha's off-screen ones, too! (Why does Bruce Boxleitner keep teasing her about those German men, anyway? Nothing happened.) Plus: We talk about how she stood up for herself (and Francine) as the show – and showrunners – kept changing; along with everything from LA real estate to divorces to motorcycle accidents to… Bruce Boxleitner and “The Hooker Routine”?! Join us on our deep-dive into all things Francine and Mrs. King with the impressive, irreverent and irreplaceable Martha Smith!

Since 1974, Beatlefest aka The Fest For Beatle Fans has been a safe space for Beatle nerds, kooks and sniffers to gather, celebrate and inhale everything fab. On this magically mysterious tour, Tony spends two days reporting to T.J. from the 2022 festival in Chicago. Posing as a journalist, Tony asks the hardest-hitting questions in order to get to the bottom of this whole “Beatles” thing. Such as:
Who Do You Think You Are?? Most time when you hear those questions it's posed in a manner in which we feel like someone is coming for us! Can I challenge you to reconsider? In this episode, I discuss how not asking yourself this question can hinder you. The absence of clarity about who you are will make you sabotage blessings, relationships, gifts, and many other good things. Posing the question positions you to be able to answer the question but also circle back and decide if is it true if is it from God, and does it add to you. God reveals the truth His word says " And You Shall Know The Truth & The Truth Shall Set You Free". Who do you think you are?? You don't have to settle! You've been through too much to be complacent reach grow stretch pray & prevail! You're so necessary !!!! Leave A Review, Rating, Like, Download, Share, Repeat!

Hopefully after listening to this, you'll never say you're FINE again… It's time to expose the big FAT F-Word in the middle of your life! Is FINE crowding out fabulous in your life? Love in your life? Life in your life? F- Fearful. That's right, you're fearful. Living in fear. Afraid of being exposed. F.E.A.R. is what I like to call: Forgetting Everything And Running. But F.E.A.R. redefined is when you: Fully Engage And Remember. That's the key. Remember who you really are. REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS… Turning your SCARED into SACRED. I- Isolated. This is where you wall yourself off from others. It's like you're saying “Leave me alone.” As you disconnect and lick your wounds. It's the ultimate disengagement that leads to a divorced heart. REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS… Connecting so your can go from DISENGAGED TO ENGAGED. Fully engaged in your life. No longer FINE, but instead, FULFILLED. INSPIRED. CONNECTED. N- Numb. When you medicate, suppress, repress, or do whatever it takes to keep from feeling. REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS… Allowing yourself to FEEL in order to HEAL. That's right. Feeling. Healing. E- Emmy… It's an Emmy-Award Winning performance of pretending. Posing. Acting. EXCUSES. “Should…BUT…” “I would…BUT…” I'm too busy. PRETENDING. REDEFINING IT LOOKS LIKE THIS… When you stop PRETENDING, and begin TENDING TO YOUR HEART AND SOUL. That's TRUTH. Full engagement in what's REAL in your life. FROM VICTIM TO VICTORIOUS. It's time to come out of your cage…your box…and begin to live your fulfilled life. Fully engaged. What do you say? Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)

For Topic Tuesday, the guys deliberate if a lower-powered car is ultimately more interesting to drive while simultaneously examining releases of the 7th-generation Ford Mustang and the Ferrari thoroughbred, known as the Purosangue. The debate comes from Dohnn B. in Oregon, who wonders if a naturally-aspirated V12 is what's next for he and his family. Social media questions ask if there should be an industry standard on lead time for concepts vs. new cars, what should you drive to the local C&C, and are “sound-producing” devices acceptable on any car?

Transcript of this episode (done by A.I.) News anchor: The United Kingdom Conservative Party announced Monday that Liz Trust was selected as its new leader. Lizz Truss: It's an honor to be elected as leader of the Conservative and Unionist Party. And I think one of the most depressing when you're driving through England is seeing fields that should be full of crops or livestock, full of solar panels. Various people: You got to be kidding me. You got to be kidding me. You're kidding me. You're kidding me. You're kidding me, right? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me? Yeah. Nope. Hell, no. Brian: Hello, and welcome to episode 130 of the Clean Energy Show. I'm Brian Stockton, James: And that must be I'm James Whittingham, and this week, British conservatives have indeed elected their new PM, and she doesn't like the site of solar panels. Oh, Boris.

I learned a new word that describes everyone you hate on Twitter. And it's not donkey knobbler. Nobler California suffers an unprecedented heat wave and the worst drought in 1200 years. Worst of all, it's become unfashionable to say, but it's a dry heat. All that and more on this edition of the Clean Energy Show. Also on this edition of I hope you're not wearing white, because it's after Labor Day. Brian, the pipeline plane that flies over my house is flying lower than expected. Much lower. Californians are asked not to charge their electric cars. Russia has a clog in their oil pipes again. And a wildfire warning in Alberta reminds people you can't run a gas pump without electricity. First of all, how's your back this week? Yeah, definitely better. I am walking without a cane for the first time. You literally walk with a cane. I was really walking with a cane. You were literally a hobbled old man for a while. Absolutely. But yeah, I think I'm doing okay. Although I will have to probably switch my seating position halfway through the show. All right. As we record this, our whole province of Saskatchewan in Canada is in international news. And I thought it would be weird if we didn't talk about that. Yeah, we've been having all kinds of emergency alerts on our phones night and day of a terrible tragedy that has taken place on the First Nation and around and for a while, the mass killer has been believed to be hiding in the city that we live in. If you listen to the show and you hear us talking about it while you've heard it in the news, and here we are. We're both here. Brian safe and his farm shelter. Our thoughts go to all the victims. And, yeah, it's not too often we make international news, and sometimes it's for good reasons and sometimes not so good. Let's hope for a good outcome and better things in the future. Yeah. So speaking of our hometown, it came up on a podcast this week. So remember when I retired, I said my retirement project was going to be making my own shoelaces? Yeah. So I learned that from a TV show called Going Deep with David Reese, one of the greatest TV shows of all time. I absolutely loved it. It covered things like how to tie your shoes. Fantastic show, right? Anyway, David Reese and John Kimball have a podcast called Election Profit Makers, and it's a humorous podcast about political commentary, American politics. But they go off on a lot of tangents on the show, which is why I like it. And they started talking recently about the old American Top 40 show with Casey Cases. And so I decided to write them a letter. And they read my letter on the show this week, which was a lot of fun for me. And it mentions our hometown, and we have a clip. Clip of another podcast: Brian writes in: Dear Kidmitas and Long John Silver. As a teenager in the early 1980s, my first real job was as the overnight DJ on CK CK, the Top 40 radio station in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. In addition to overnights, I would often operate the American Top 40 show on Saturday afternoons, and it would come in on four vinyl LPs every week. Incredibles per side. I can't believe they used to do the radio shows on records. Yes. Now he says, I managed to keep a souvenir from my time at this station, and that's the complete vinyl set of the 1983 Top 100 Countdown from American Top 40. And he attached pictures along with a picture of the skyline for Regina, Saskatchewan. It's pretty sweet. I'm telling you. Canada, pretty much every city in Canada has a great skyline. James: That one guy sounds like me. And going off on tangent sounds like us. Brian: Yeah, there's a very similar dynamic on the show there, I would say. And perhaps I'm the straight man, you're the funny man. But, yeah, they like to talk about skylines. That's one of the tangents, the aesthetic qualities of city skylines. And so they appreciated the skyline of our city. And, yeah, in their opinion, most Canadian cities have a fantastic looking skyline. And I don't know, I would have to kind of agree. Yeah, sure. They're not bad. I remember somebody from going through town once, I told the story in the show before. I was going to a newspaper conference, a student newspaper conference in Winnipeg. And he went through Johnny, he said, hey, your town looks brand new, because he just drove by to look at the skyline. And it's all glassy towers. At least it was 30 years ago when I was in university. And apparently wherever they were from didn't have that. And the other nice thing about our skyline, it rises out of a completely flat prairie. It's very unusual to have a city built on a completely flat thing. But then the other part of the call so, yeah, it makes me sound super old to be relating this story, but I used to operate the American Top 40 show. It came in on records. They would make a record every week, four LPs. And that's how we would play the show on the radio. That is amazing. In the mail, I guess. I don't remember, but so I have the complete Top 100 countdown from 1983. It was usually meant to be played, like, on New Year's Eve. You start at 04:00 p.m.. The show wraps up at midnight top 100 hits of the year. So next year it'll be the 40th anniversary of this 19 8100. So I've always been ready to have like a New Year's Eve party or something where we play the 1983 Top 100 countdown. But I don't know. Then I'd have to stay up till midnight, which I don't think I would. Oh, that's tough for you. That's tough for you. You'd need an injection of some sort. Yeah. So huge. Thanks to David and John and the election profit makers show. That was a lot of fun. And you can go on ebay and discogs and you can find them for sale. You can buy them. Sometimes I think the one I've got is probably worth a couple of something. Was it like the Casey case I'm talking was on vinyl too? Oh, yeah, everything. So you didn't have to do anything. I would have to insert the commercial break so he would say, and coming up next, right after this and then you'd have to pause the turntable, play the commercials and then start the turntable back up again. Have you ever paused a turntable while it was playing someplace? And I went, don't remember doing that. No. But we used to play songs on carts. They were sort of like eight tracks. That's how all the songs were played on the station. So sometimes there's a few songs that have pauses in them. Like the music stops for a second. So sometimes for fun, we would pause the pause for a little extra. You dirty bastards. On late night radio, screwing is a lot of fun. You rebel. That's funny and weird. So that's our broadcasting heritage here at the Clean Energy Show. Well, that is so weird. Like, you've never mentioned that to me before. That's such a weird thing. I wonder if it was just practical because they could stamp them out at the time. Like nowadays they could stamp a CD, I suppose. Yeah. There were enough stations to play the show. There must have been a lot they would have had to make. Yeah, like 1000 or 2000, maybe, who knows? Well, I was driving into my North Regina subdivision, I guess, made in the late 70s so it's still at the edge of the city. And I saw a plane flying over the subdivision here. From a different perspective, it was the pipeline plane, from a different perspective, wasn't flying over here. I thought the damn thing was landing like it was so low. So I was kind of curious. And I used a flight Tracker 24 software online than in my app to track it sometimes to see where it's going. And it says Calibrated 2100ft, but I thought that was 2100ft because that's where the air ambulance, helicopters fly. It's not, though. It's not above terrain. It's above sea level. And we're 1900ft above sea level. So that sucker is 200ft above the ground. Yeah. And this is the plane. I've got a toy drone, Brian, that almost goes that high. And if I hacked it, it would like it's a very serious subject, but it's not out of the question that anybody could be flying a drone at a couple of hundred feet and run into this airplane, which, by the way, inspects the pipeline for leaks. Yeah. So I did some research on pipeline inspection planes. They call them pipeline patrol pilots. And apparently in the old days, not that long ago, they would fly 50 to 100ft off the ground. Now, I'm sure they wouldn't do that over a city because there would be cell towers and things like that. And by the way, a cell tower is probably that high in some cases, so that's interesting. But somebody died in Edmonton in 2013 doing it because they were taking pictures. Their job is to take photographs and fly the damn plane by themselves. Wow. Well, I remember I made a film one time where we rented a helicopter and we filmed some stuff from a helicopter. And my recollection back then was a thousand feet was as low as the helicopter was allowed to go over the city when we were flying over the city to take some shots. So the pipeline planes must have their own special kind of regulation. It gives us PTSD here, it sounds like World War II because they sound like they're flying right over your head. Incoming. Always yell incoming when it comes to my family, just as a joke. Nobody gets it, but I am using myself. And that's how it goes. That's all that matters. Yeah, this plane just does the pipeline through the small city we live in of 200,000 people or so. Just does that stretch. So it takes off and lands in about less than 15 minutes and it's done its whole work. Wow. The other day, though, I tracked it and it took off and did it twice, and then it took off down the pipeline, which also splits our bedroom community of Emerald Parkwite City diagonally. Just splits it in half. You're on the wrong side of the pipeline. I know, but, well, it's still fun. And there's lots of golfers out there. And I heard on the radio that they're going to stop poisoning the little bastards. They can be annoying, the Richardson ground squirrel, which we have here in abundance, and they will reproduce. They will come into my yard and eat my strawberries and assert themselves and get cocky. I've spent lots of time staring at them and they chirp. They make this high pitched chirp and it's just really irritating after hours. It's kind of bad, like having a really nasty crow around or something. By the way, the crows disappeared. I mentioned that. We started the summer, lost the crows, they're gone. I don't know who shot them or ate them or whatever. So they're gone? Yes, they're moving on. CBC had a new story that perhaps my ears up on California. I guess the government down there asked them to not charge your EVs. Try not to use too much electricity in those key hours. And the key hours are between 04:00 p.m. And 09:00 p.m.. Even electric cars, supposedly a long term solution to fossil fuel usage, are part of this problem. Owners of Tesla's and other Ecars are being asked not to charge their vehicles during that five hour period, prompting some to ask questions about an eventual complete conversion to electric cars. Severn. Vormstein is with the University of California. There's no way we could keep up right now if we suddenly went to 100% clean cars. What do you think of that? Yeah, well, it's annoying because of course we can't immediately switch to 100% electric cars. It's a gradual thing, but there's certainly a number of factors being stacked on top of one another that is turning this into a much more difficult year for energy grids than I think we ever expected. So with California, it's this massive heat wave. They're well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in California and the worst drought in 1200 years. Did you see that? No. This is the worst drought in 1200 years in the western United States. Well, it's been a weird pattern. And I heard somebody say that it was El Ninja. The ocean current was sticking around for a second and possibly third winter. Wow. And that has done weird things. And one of the things is bunched up the systems in North America. So we got this big ridge going way up to Alaska, and that gets hot. And we get hot here in central western Canada. And yesterday was the hottest day on record for Regina for this day. Yeah, it was the second hottest day of the summer. The hottest day of the summer was also in September, where it got to 36 deg. It's crazy. I mean, that's never happened before, ever. I've lived here almost all my life, and I was at a weather geek when I was a kid. I paid attention to these things and yeah, it's weird. So I heat my pool with solar panels, like thermal solar panels, and it's the first time I've ever been in the pool in September without a gas heater in my pool. And it's weird because it doesn't work as well as it does in June. The sun goes down early, and it goes behind trees, my neighbors trees. So the pool itself gets shaded. And it's unpleasant to be in there when you're not in the sun. So it takes a longer time to heat up anyway. It's just weird. Yeah. And of course, the other thing that's happening with a massive drought and this is not just California, but places in Europe is happening, too, is the hydroelectric cannot run at full capacity because they just don't have the water behind the dams that they normally do. So the Hoover Dam, lake Mead. There was another mob body found the other day in Lake Mead. So Lake Mead is the reservoir for the Hoover Dam. Produces lots of hydroelectric power, but it's down to something like 30% of its maximum level now. And so they can't generate as much electricity as normal. And, yeah, they're finding bodies now. The water is so low, they're finding bodies in there that have been there for decades. And the rivers are low in Germany, so you can't transport coal. And the water is too hot to cool some of the nuclear plants in, I believe, France. And now, this isn't a hundred years from now, this isn't 50 years from now. All this weird stuff is happening now. Posing problems for non solar and wind. I would say yes. And the only thing I would mention here is I think we talked about it, but there's a Tesla virtual Power plant pilot project going on in California. So they've run it three times now, and they're probably running it again today. So today is expected to be perhaps the biggest peak of this energy crisis in California. They may have to go to blackouts today in California as we record this because they may not be able to produce enough energy. But anyway, it's not enough to save the grid. But these virtual power plants in California can output up to 50 MW, which is a promising start. Imagine eventually when every home has a backup battery that would be enough to kind of stabilize these problems with the grid. But I thought that was super encouraging. And when called upon, they can all shoot power to the grid at up to 50 MW, apparently. And 50 MW is five times the peak capacity of the solar plant that I visited in Saskatchewan. What are the first ones that came on? The only ones that they're allowing now is 10 MW. So 10 is five times what that is. And that just further illustrates how puny that solar farm from SAS power is. Yeah. So they're expecting rolling blackouts is expected to be 115 deg today in Sacramento. That's 46 Celsius. That would be a record. And people are going to turn on the air conditioners. They're telling people not to charge their electric cars, especially during peak hours. I don't think people do because in California there's like peak energy demand, right? Yeah. I was posting this on Twitter. If you have an EV, you can get a special plan on the grid. There the utility and they'll charge you less overnight. So if you have an EV plan, you pay, I don't know, it's a third or something like that of what the demand is during the day, in the early evening, and then you can charge all you want from eleven on or something. Yeah, and that's a good example of how we are going to adapt and we're not going to switch to 100% electric cars overnight. But that's one of the strategies going forward as we slowly transition to electric. And I should say I think it's like $0.25 overnight. So that's almost twice what we're paying. I guess ours are creeping up too, but twenty five cents per kilowatt hour per kilowatt hour. That's still kind of pricey. It's not like the $0.03 that some places are talking about charging EV owners to charge overnight. But that is one way your neighbors will say, well, the grid can't handle it because they write it out a meme on Facebook, that's BS. If we charged overnight, we have the capacity to meet what the peak demand is and it falls off overnight. And there's lots of buffer there between what overnight use is and what the peak is that you could charge in some grids right now. You could just charge all the electric. If everybody had an electric car, you could charge them all and it'd be fine because they're only charging for a couple of hours too, like at most usually. Yeah. And it's an example of how these grids just need to plan and manage. And just the extreme weather that we're having this year is kind of revealing, maybe, who has done the best planning and who has not. I mean, the governor could have easily said don't cook supper in your oven or don't do a load of laundry. But they went after electric cars and said don't charge them. And very few people are charging them anyway. What they need to do is say turn up your thermostat by a degree or two and just take it easy because the peak we don't want to rolling black. And do your thing if you can, if you want to, and then the industry can help with that as well. They can slow down their shifts at factories or whatever, but yeah, so we'll see what happens if there are in fact, I guess there are 5000 MW short of its power supply, peak demand, that's forecasted by the computers. And that will hit at 05:30 P.m. Pacific, which is a couple of hours after we're recording this. Yeah, we'll see how that goes. Russia has again stopped supplying gas to Germany through the pipeline that we've been talking about over the past few weeks on the show. So again, Russia has said, no more gas for you. Germany, they were trying to build up gas reserves in Germany. And Germany has said finally, that they are still planning to close those three nuclear power plants that are scheduled to close by the end of the year. They're going to go ahead with it, but the kind of compromise is they're going to keep two of them on standby, whatever that means. I guess if they completely mothballed everything, they couldn't start it up again. But they're going to not completely mothball everything and have two of the three on standby until April so that they possibly could be restarted if they need to. There's a remarkable thing that you talked about last week. If you missed last week's show, you might want to go listen to that because there's a lot of stipulations going on with those plants that they have to fix or not fix. And it's a challenge. Yeah. No, I often think about Mad Max. The Mad Max movies, which I love. And it's all based around gasoline because it's the wasteland in Australia and gasoline is the precious resource after society has collapsed. But if we were to have this Mad Max future now, it'd really be solar panels and batteries would be the precious resource. And it's a much, much simpler thing than having to make gasoline and store gasoline or process it or whatever you have to do. And the same thing with nuclear power plants. Like, a nuclear power plant is not going to be much use in a post apocalyptic world because it's too complicated to run. And yeah, so I did enjoy that segment on last week's show. It's not as simple as just deciding to keep a plant open or close it. Nuclear power plants have so many rules and regulations and laws, they would literally have to change the laws in Germany to keep those power plants open. And hats off to the employees of the nuclear power plants in the Ukraine, which are essentially prisoners of the Russians and who have decided, because speaking of not being used in an apocalypse, well, you have to have the expertise there, and they're basically forcing them to be there. It's just a horrible situation. And Brian, speaking of emergency alerts, we've gotten a whole bunch of alerts, but Alberta has some emergency alerts that I'm going to make fun of or at least make light of because Jasper National Park in Alberta straddling the Alberta BC border. It is arguably one of our national park's best areas. It's amazing. So beautiful and less touristy than bank because it's a bit more out of the way. It is experiencing, unfortunately, a wildfire due to the heat wave that we've been talking about. And it was started by lightning. But here's what the CBC news story said about it said before Jasper lost power Sunday evening, the Alberta Emergency Alert System advised residents to prepare for a possible power outage in the town of Jasper, including advising people to fill up their vehicles fuel tank as gas stations rely on electricity. And people come to us and say what do you do with the power comes out? They come up with those parking lots with their EVs and they say what do you do if the power goes out? As if they run out of extension cords. The fact is you charge them and you have hundreds of kilometers of range if the power goes out. And then you drive like you would. And if the gas station has no power, if you had no power, you could drive to where there is power and charge it up if you needed to. Yeah. And Jasper has always had kind of an isolated electricity system because it's in kind of a remote place and I think there's only kind of one power line going in and out. So they have frequent blackouts in Jasper. So perhaps the residents are used to this. But I remember being in Jasper a few years ago and the power was out. It was out for hours. But where did we go? We went to the one restaurant or there was a couple that had generators like this happens frequently enough that this restaurant had a big enough generator to keep themselves running. Well, it's wilderness. It's mountain wilderness. You have power lines that are hard to get to. You have to helicopter people in there. That's a perfect place for a battery backup system when they become available. Yeah, and I think they are working on that. They're running generators to do the well, I think the power is out right now. So if anybody in Jasper is listening to us. Hello. Yeah. So General Motors is going to offer buyouts to their Buick dealers. So this is very similar to a story we had last year where they were offering buyouts to Cadillac dealers. So these are sub brands within General Motors. When they offered it to Cadillac dealers, about 320 out of the 880 retailers accepted the offer. And apparently the buyouts for the Cadillac dealers was in the range of $300,000 to a million dollars a payout to get them to stop selling Buicks or stop selling Cadillacs. And this is because General Motors realizes they have too many dealerships. They cannot go forward with this many dealerships in an electric vehicle future. So this is a sign of the times and good on General Motors for planning for the future like that and we'll see how it goes. So there's about 2000 Buick dealers and they're all going to be offered this deal and some of them will have to go away. And of course switching to an EV dealership is going to be perhaps an expensive proposition. There'd be money involved and so I think this is a buyout, really, for the kind of the smaller dealerships that don't think that they can make enough money off of EVs. As we've discussed many times, they don't need oil changes, they need much less maintenance. It's for those dealerships that just think they don't want to make the effort or spend the money to go to EVs because they don't think it's going to be worth it. My elderly neighbors will be disappointed because they bought a Buick recently. Oh, really? That's what I said to myself. Oh. I didn't know Buicks existed anymore. Yes. I don't know why they don't just shut out the brand. Because the average age of the buyers got to be in their seventy s. Seventy s? How about one hundred eighty s? One hundred. I'm thinking old people who are living in the don't want to buy a Cadillac or a Buick. But you know, the Cadillac lyric is pretty. It checks all the checkboxes. It takes off a lot of things, fast charging range. But maybe I'll end up with just one of those one of these days. Some more news from Germany. So over the summer, they introduced this really interesting deal for cheap rail in Germany. And they did this because of the high fuel prices in Germany. This is really part of the whole strategy energy crisis in Europe. Fuel is just too expensive. And of course, also the more people drive, the more it contributes to greenhouse gasses. So over the three months of the summer, germany offered for $9, which is about €9 a month, a train ticket to go anywhere in Germany. And this has worked really well. It has saved about one 8 million tons of CO2 from the atmosphere. And yes, people took advantage of this. It makes a lot of sense. And of course, it's not necessarily as possible where we live in the isolated prairies, but when you have a proper rail system, like they do in pretty much all the countries in Europe, why not offer incentives and get people to use it? And it benefits everyone. I wonder if that will spread through Europe just because there's a big crunch coming on energy and maybe that idea will spread and that will also maybe change some people's habits. Yeah, I hope so. And of course, it's also just a bit of a help because gasoline is just so expensive. So it's a way to help out your population and give them a break on the high fuel prices. This is a clean energy show with Brian Stockton and James Whittingham. Brian. The UK finally has a new Prime Minister to replace Mr. Boris Johnson. Right. So, Liz Truss, I haven't seen a picture. What's her hair like? It's more organized, I would say. Definitely more organized. Okay, that's a good sign. It doesn't seem to have a life of its own. It seems fine as every other person in England has normal hair. But not Boris. Yeah, so she's weird. She doesn't like the sight of solar panels. And I think one of the most depressing sights when you're driving through England is seeing fields that should be full of crops or livestock, full of solar panels. The hell is wrong with her? She started as a Social Democrat and she was an anti nuclear activist when she was young, but at some point at university, a switch went off and she became hard. Right. And she's vowed to be a very Conservative Conservative because that's what she campaigned on. I always think it's fantastic when I see a field of solar panels, but also Agravoltaics, which you talk about frequently. You can have both. You can have crops and solar panels. You can have sheep grazing, you can have goats grazing. It's a win win. It's sad that she's insane. It's sad that she's dumb about this, as many people in her party are, but, you know, there's only 14% of Brits are against the net zero plan for us. Johnson 14% of people are against sunny days. That's unheard of. Like, there's a very strong support for clean energy in that zero. Yeah. So that's a weird stand for her to she's making it a sort of culture war, using the climate as a culture war thing. She doubled down on her comments during the leadership campaign that farmers feel shouldn't be full of solar panels, and several Conservative MPs have raised it. And solar farms in the UK currently account for 0.8% of total land use. That's very little land use right now under the government's net zero plan. Solar farms. This is getting rid of climate change, right? Addressing climate change, Paris Accord targets and all that over the next 30 years would be .6% of all land use. About half of 1% of land use would be solar in the UK. And that's not accounting for efficiency improvements as we move forward. We'll need less panels, and maybe there'll be different ways to deploy them. Yeah, it's a strange thing to plant a flag on. Anyway, Brian, I just want to add one thing. Solar energy. UK says that this amount of land use will be less than the amount of land currently used for golf courses. That is the .6% of UK land. And saving the freaking planet is less than golf courses. No. And golf courses are kind of notoriously bad for the environment because they take up so much space for the enjoyment of so few people and they take so many resources to water and maintain those lawns that apologize to golfers. Let's take all the golf courses in the world and just put solar panels on them. That would be great. All right, so, staying in Europe again, European energy crisis. France is looking to cut their energy use by about 10% this year. So, again, energy crunch. France is having problems with their nuclear plants. They aren't able to share as much energy back and forth with other countries like Germany who's having their problems. So coming into the winter, they have said that they want to cut energy use by about 10%. So in the winter, this is going to mean setting your thermostat in your house at about 19 Celsius or 66 Fahrenheit, which is a genuine sacrifice. I would not want to do that. We've been very spoiled of just being able to kind of set the temperature. So 19 would be freezing for me. Yeah. Where am I? I'm around 21, I think. Winter has been so far behind us and yet so close to tennis. But that's up. It's up. When I first moved to this house, I was a 20 degree man. Brian. Yes. Now that I'm old, I'm not making energy anymore in my body. I'm just getting old. I'm supposed to eat less. That's why the seniors menu 55 plus is cheaper at Denny's, because I'm supposed to eat less. Yeah, I don't feel like you feel like you do the same thing I did when I was 20. There's going to be a lot of sweaters sold in France. That's all I got to say about that. Yeah, get into the sweater business and Brian from the Nebraska examiner and I know you have subscription, Brian. Do you have a subscription to that one? No, but next time I'm on the PressReader app, I will look for the Nebraska shout out to the Nebraska examiner staff. A southwest Iowa ethanol plant has been ordered to pay $10,000 fine for its repeated air emissions of excessive cancer causing compounds in the last five years. I live near an oil refinery, heavy oil operator refinery. And I complained about the smell and I told you that there's an author and a team of journalists looking at that over four years and they're looking to go to ethanol and stuff like that and biofuel fuel for planes and stuff like that. They're trying to diversify and there's even canola crushing plants going up around it. But this proves to me the reason why I mentioned it is that even these plants can have horrible emissions like formaldehyde. This plant was spewing out formaldehyde and other byproducts of its fermentation process that are known to have adverse health risk like cancer. So actual harm to the environment and public health may have occurred since this order from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and due to the amount of pollutants that were and are being admitted. So, yeah, it's just something to keep in mind when you think that, oh, good, your refinery is going bio. It can be bad for you as well if you live near one. Yeah, no, I've never been a fan of the bio fuels. It's a stop gap that we probably don't need. Okay. So rumors are heating up about a possible Tesla factory here in Canada. Public companies have to disclose their lobbying efforts. So Electric and others have reported on this. Apparently Tesla is looking at Quebec and Ontario for some type of factory. I mean, it could be a car factory, could be a battery factory, could be both, who knows? What's your bet? Where's your bet going right now? I'm thinking it will be a car factory, and I'm thinking Quebec. There is a long history of not only automobile production in Ontario and Quebec, but also mining a lot of the minerals. And of course, Tesla is trying to local source as many of the minerals and metals and stuff needed for electric cars for the batteries. So, yeah, best case scenario, a battery and car plant. And I'm leaning towards Quebec, but that's really just a guess. I'm leaning towards not being a normal car plant. Like not XYZ three, not a full blown thing. No, it could be batteries or it could be something weird like cyber trucks and semis. That's my guess. Yes. Because they both take up a lot of batteries. So maybe they'll just make the batteries for those two things and I don't know, they'll be able to transport them to the east coast because that's kind of one of the challenges of the Texas plant, is having to transport all that stuff to the other half of the country and the eastern half. Yeah, and like I say, there's a huge history of doing this. Like all the major car brands have factories or have had factories in Ontario and Quebec, in Canada. So clearly there's a decent reason to do it. If others have done it, then probably it'd be a work for Tesla. And on the Great Lakes, that's a port. That's access to a port. So if you wanted to ship to Europe, that's another option. Yeah, it's not just the eastern part of North America is a shorter shipping route to Europe where a lot of these things are going to be bought over the next little while. So, once again, I know I mentioned this a lot, but I was on the Chevy Bolt user group that is largely the United States. There's so many people there compared to Canada. That is a post every couple of minutes and it eats up my Facebook feed, but I always find it interesting. Brian there's a guy named Randy Moffatt, which is interesting because I went to high school with the person with that name and the fear of change. This is something that he pointed out in a Facebook post talking about all the hate that EV owners were getting. And so he came into this and he said, the fear of change has a word, it's called oh God. Meta the SEO phobia. No. You do. Finland pronunciations. Why can't you do this? No, I think you did it slowly, but you did it above. So it is the fear of change. And I hadn't heard of this one before. Have you heard of that? One. I've heard lots of phobias. Yeah, this is basically what's going on in the world. If you were looking at Facebook hate and people uncomfortable with DVS. So why do they give a crap? I mean, you could say, well, they're forced to in 2035 or in California and other places, but that's not really a pressing issue right now. It's not here before us. Why do people hate on EV so much? And it is a fear that people are going through, a fear of change. And the fear of change is evolutionary in humans. Our internal predispositions teach us to resist change, mainly to always feel in control. So these people are feeling out of control on these people who like to feel in control the most in our comfort zone. Yeah. And of course, it isn't just a hatred of EVs. It's just a reaction to people are scared about getting off fossil fuels, which seems like a weird thing to us because it's a whole new dawn of a fantastic new day. It's nothing but good news getting off fossil fuels. But yeah, people are just scared about change. And you see it a lot in Alberta, our neighboring oil province, where people are just absolutely dead set on sticking with what they know, which is oil and gas. Here's a quip from YouTube. We are all afraid of the uncertainty that comes with change. We would rather things be not so great then go through the risk and process of change. This specific phobia can reduce one's will to live. So this is pretty extreme. Wow. The phobes who have this often feel like they have no control over their lives on the cost and changes. She tends to live in the past and may also be depressed. So there you go. Therefore, you make them unwilling to move. So Randy says on this Facebook post, I became interested in computers in the early 1970s and learned a program so that's very early, like, very few people were doing it back then. I was always on the cutting edge of technology. The amount of hate was palatable with people accusing me of being a Satanist. Randy S from the States, where there's lots of, you know, Baptists and religion and stuff, people said they would never own one. This is a computer. Okay, yeah. So we are going through this again. He says. However, now the government is issuing mandates for this transition to EV is making the fear even worse. When I got my first EV almost nine years ago, I had neighbors calling me crazy. My next door neighbor said he would never own one. Last weekend he told me he just ordered his third. So be patient, be nonconfrontational, just set a quiet example and someday, just like computers, they will figure it out. And I thought that was a great post. I wanted to share with their listeners. This happens all the time. Like, I follow photography and cameras and stuff. And there's a move now from optical viewfinders to electronic viewfinders and cameras, and it's progressed enough that people have accepted it. But two or three years ago, you had people just hatred for electronic viewfinders on cameras. Like, people just hated the idea of it, and one by one, they're all moving to it. It happened too quickly for them to comprehend. I don't know. As soon as I found out about it, I thought it was fantastic, and I couldn't wait to switch. So, yeah, this is definitely a mindset. Conservatives versus progressive. I had one on a point and shoot camera 15 long time ago, a lot of years ago in the digital camera age. Didn't care for it, of course. They weren't focused. You couldn't do anything. I'm sure they're getting a lot better, and I've not actually used one myself. It was very clear to me early on it was the way of the future. But, yeah, people just take much longer, generally speaking, to catch on. All right, let's stick it to the mail bag. The user feedback this week comes from Doug in Colorado, who wrote about our May 2 show. Doug, you're behind. You put a lot of catching up to do. Take some time off work if you have to. Binge listen our show. So he says to us, thank you for highlighting the problem of light trespass from harsh, glaring Led street light fixtures. And he says an excellent resource is the International Dark Sky Association. They have everything people need to know about light pollution, including model lighting ordinance. And also, thanks for coming to Ups. Replacement gasoline, mail delivery, van, contract debacle. Hoping canada learns from the United States. US is making big mistakes and hopefully pushes Canada to do much better. Yeah, so I vaguely remember talking about Led lighting back in May. That was a long time ago. Led lighting, I think what we said at the time, it's a fantastic opportunity to upgrade things and make it better and reduce light pollution. But since Led lights are still kind of new technology, a lot of the designs aren't great. Cities don't quite know how to implement them yet. And yeah, a lot of the times they're just too harsh. But, yeah, my pet peeve is the brightness. We have the ability now to put them on timers and control the brightness. So street lights could come on at full power, kind of in the dusk times, and then you could eventually back those off at three in the morning, just turn all the street lights down. And if you've ever been out in the middle of the night, you don't need a whole lot of light to see once your eyes are adjusted. I'm surrounded by a ridiculous amount of light pollution. I'm thankful that they changed the street lights in our neighborhood here to Led that have a slight warmth to them, and they're less bright than the previous, I would say overall they disperse them better, and they even that out, and that's fine. However, my neighbor across the street, across the boulevard, he's the person with the police stickers all over his house, he's scared of getting killed. And he's got this bright white LEDs just glaring on his property like a landing strip for an airport. And then across the Pipeline Field, which is, I don't know, 50 meters across, 50 yards across, there's another guy who has a giant white light in his backyard, and it shines, and I can see the gophers and anything going around in the night. And then there's a school there as well, which is further away from me, but they have this anti never do well lighting to keep people from doing things there, because people do do things. But it's blindingly bright, and it shines in my drapes, and it's a long ways away, and it's light pollution. And all these lights that I speak of are not on the spectrum of warmth. So they're the bluer side, and they bounce, and those are the wavelengths that bounce up into the sky the most. And I think I talked about this on the show, but I've got a street light just right outside of my house. And a couple of years ago, the ball went out, and it was the greatest, because I don't want that giant street lamp shining in my windows at night. It was so great. I was very disappointed when they should have rented a bucket truck and went up there and put some tape over it just a little put in a low wattage bulb. And also yesterday I was coming home from Home Depot and I saw two pickup or two trucks with Amazon delivery vehicles on them, like there was four Amazon Delivery Prime trucks, the kinds that look like the EVs that they're coming out in the States. So, of course, I went and checked them out and saw the giant tailpipes on them. Was very disappointed. But they looked those four transit vans converted, and they should look they should be EVs, and they're not. We don't have those around here. We have a third party delivery service, don't we, in Virginia? No, it hasn't been great for electric sort of trans advance around here. Yeah, but there was one place remember last week we talked about a place in Saskatoon? They got one for delivering at a bakery, and it's just and they're saving money, handover it's free. They said there's paying for the payments to save money. They save for the payments for the new vehicle. So how great is that? And of course, we'd love to hear from you. So right now, get out your pen. Get out your typewriter. Cleanenergyshow@gmail.com. Write us with an angry letter. Tell us when we're wrong. Tell us when you agree or disagree with us.

We'll mention your birthday. Here we go. Brian. The Clean Energy Show Lightning Round, where we breeze through the headlines and end the show on a fast pace. End of life batteries from electric vehicles are not likely to be the primary source of recyclable material until the mid 2030, according to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence. Yeah, I think we talked about that last week of the week before that. It's going to be a very slow ramp up because electric vehicle batteries are just lasting way longer than people thought. Our friend Donald Trump has gone on a nonsense, cynical rant about electric cars the other day at a rally. He says we need to get rid of them. The story was on electric and we have a clip, but I'm not going to play the man, okay? I said to myself, how can we cover this and not hear his stupid freaking voice? You already said his name. Which gives me I'm sorry. I like how Steven Colbert does it. They have Twitter. People come up with nicknames, which always makes for him every. But this is very similar to the British PM with the rant about solar panels is kind of the same thing. This is trying to make it into a culture war type of issue. Well, speaking of Britain, I had a computer read his text in a posh British accent. So here it is. A friend of mine wanted to do something for the environment. He went out and bought an electric car and he made a certain trip, I won't say from where, kentucky. And he is a good person. He wants to do what's well, and now he understands, hey, not so good. He bought an electric car and he made the trip often from Kentucky to Washington. And he made it. He would drive down, put the car away and drive back. He was getting like 38 miles per gallon. It took me more time to charge in the damn car than I could spend in a drive in. It took me two and half times. My name is Donald J. Trump, and I'm an idiot. A complete and total idiot. Please enjoy listening to the Clean Energy Show. Hopefully Brian isn't drunk this week. Okay, well, that was a bit added on at the end there, but you get the idea. It makes no sense at all. Yeah, and we all know electric cars work great for road trips. They do. And the author of that electric piece, Freslinber, pointed out that he went from New Orleans up to Quebec, didn't have to stop for more than 30 minutes and he had to dine anyway. I had to eat something and go to the bathroom and stretch his leg. Yeah, it wasn't an inconvenience at all for him and his Tesla. Yeah. With the caveat that the Tesla charging network is definitely the best and the third party charger is maybe not as good and you might still have some issues there. Have you heard of Boston Consulting Group before? Often it is quoted in the news on different things. It is a major consulting group. So four years. This is four years of Boston Consulting groups. US. Electric vehicle sales forecasts. This is something that Wall Street relies on, consulting groups like this. And this is an evolution of how their forecasts have changed. We talked about this type of thing on the show, that people are always revising their forecast and we could have told them differently. So in 2018, they said 21% of sales will be EVs in 2030. This is the United States. Two years later, they said, Oops, 26. Year after that, 42. That's a big jump. And then this year, they're now saying 53%, which is a lot more common. And even that is like, we doubt that. We think it's going to be more than that. Things are going to tip. This is an S Curve adoption, and we're at the steep part of the S Curve. This is going to go up way faster than people think. Just think back to when smartphones were first introduced and everyone's like, that's kind of a weird thing. And then you blink and a couple of years later, everybody had a smartphone. And that's how fast it goes. You're looking at the chart now on our script. Look at where it levels off. It levels off between 55 and 75%. Yeah, they're still kind of doing it wrong. They're still underestimate. Curves of adoption don't level off until around 90%. Like color TVs, cell phones, stuff like that, when the last 10% is the hard to get. Yeah. And I will say, like, manufacturing cars, electric cars, is a lot more difficult, probably, than manufacturing something like a smartphone. So it maybe won't go as quickly as the smartphone, but it is going to go fast. From carbon tracker. Just over 30 solar installations are being carried out every week in Britain, and that is up from 1000 a week just two years ago. So it's tripled the home. That's a lot. The home solar installations have tripled in two years. That's crazy time for CS. Fast fact hawaii produces more renewable energy than all of Canada. Were you sitting down for that? Oh, yes. Your posture is excellent this week, by the way. I'm happy to see your back is better. Yeah, I haven't had to change position, but yeah, we reported a couple of weeks ago they got their last shipment of coal for their last coal fired electricity plant. And that plant did close down just the other day. So that's great. So, yeah, the regulatory consequences are clear. If utilities fail to meet their renewable targets, they are forced to pay penalties, which must be covered by company, the shareholders, and rather than the taxpayers. And that's the way it should be. That should be the lesson for everybody. The shareholders should have to cover it, not the ratepayers. Electric school busses in Massachusetts provided energy back to the grid for more than 8 hours this summer. That is a lot of hours of emergency heat wave protection from buses that weren't doing anything because they are electric. They were sitting around all summer. And this is a great use case in the United States where they have less severe winters, but summer heat waves need that grid backup. And those electric buses which are just starting to trickle in, really, for schools, are there and useful. So that's awesome. Fantastic. Ten of 13 flagship CCS that is carbon capture and Sequestration Rhine SEQUEST projects failed to deliver, according to IEFA analysis, and that's 50% of goals haven't even been reached. And that's what our boundary dam they mentioned. The boundary dam is the first thing they mentioned right here in this catch one. Yeah, we had one of the first carbon capture on a coal plant, and they have captured some carbon, but nowhere near what they thought they were. Mars Technica ebike battery fires are pushing New York City towards a ban in public housing. That is, public housing is banning ebikes. This is quite disturbing, but so is the reason why so poorly made cells, tough work and lack of space, I guess, in these places, are causing deadly rise of fires. A deadly rise of fires in the New York City. That was a lot. I mean, laptops can do that, too. Ebike battery is made up of dozens of individual AA sized batteries wired together and managed by a battery management system. And you were talking last week how you were told that you have to unplug. You can't just keep charging us. Maybe that's the reason. Yes. My ebike doesn't have a battery management system, so you're not supposed to leave it plugged in. But yeah, I could see where this could turn out to be a huge problem. By the way, my partner shops at Shoppers Druckmart, and they had an ebike in there for $250 for the weekend, but it was just this tiny little thing that didn't have pedals, it just had spikes to put your feet on. Yes. Anyway, that's interesting. Sometimes those things are mismanaged. The charging is mismanaged, the faulty, they are damaged, they're waterlogged. But a five year old was killed in a fire, and it's very tragic. And just be careful. If you have an ebike battery, don't read the manual and be aware that you're not supposed to leave it. In many cases, you're not supposed to leave them charging indefinitely, but they're not inherently dangerous either. But anything that is a battery that charges I mean my charge and lead to acid battery in my house for my RV. So you got to be careful. Washington Post amid a bonanza of measures passed to cut the state's carbon emissions in California as fast as possible, the legislature in California approved $1,000 refundable tax credit to poor Californians who don't own vehicles. So it's paying people not to own vehicles if you are poorish. I might even qualify. It will head to the desk of Newton soon and he's going to sign it. He's expected to sign it. The bill offers the tax credit to single filers earning up to $40,000 in joint filers up to $60,000 who live without personal cars. And you can get it whether you make a lot of tax money or not. And you can just get that $1,000 regardless. Yeah, that sounds great. And maybe that's something we'll start to see other places. I've heard the concept before, but this is the first time I've seen it getting passed. Another CS fast Fact from Nat bullard from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. There are 148,026 convenience stores in the United States. OK, 148,000. What he's saying is look out. Change is coming. And Brian, that is our time for this week. It's been fun as always.

We are now traveling around the entire United States so if you see our van with the podcast name, Everything Else in Bodybuilding, and my giant mug on it, be sure to honk and wave. I posted pictures and videos on social media and you can check them out on either TikTok, Facebook, or instagram. Stuff on YouTube will be coming shortly. The day before we left, I was at the cash register at the grocery store and the cashier comments to me about the three 9s on my bill. She says to me that it is an angelic sign. Whether you believe in it or not, it was a nice message. She didn't have to say that to me. It made me feel good to think of a presence with us while we embark on this adventure. Not long after this, I get a message from a movie producer's assistant about a potential role in a movie. We were prepared to reroute our entire trip and to drive to the movie set. For a second there I thought about the three 9s and wondered if something bigger was in the works. The stars didn't align this time because they needed me across the country THAT DAY but our van was in the shop so the timing was bad. It did feel good to be considered for a part in a Hollywood movie, no matter how small, and that got my wheels turning in my head about other things I can do while on the road to make extra cash so our life on the road will be more comfortable. And who knows what'll come up in the future. I'm always open to new opportunities that make sense. Speaking of opportunities I'm very grateful to those of you listening who have reached out for potential posing clinics at your local gyms while I'm out on tour. As you know by now, or at least I think you do, that with my 20 year background in all federations and divisions, I have the unique ability to TEACH all federations and divisions from actual experience. So my clinics are not going to be the same woo woo “look at me” posing clinics you might have already gone to. In fact, I'm going to go as far as to say that you will walk away from my clinics never thinking about posing and presentation the same. Special shout out to Lisa Faser from Chicago for her efforts and going out of her way - and her comfort zone - to post flyers in her gym to try and round up interest for a clinic. Lisa didn't manage to round up a group of people for a clinic this time, so I offered her a rare opportunity for a 1-on-1 posing lesson. I don't do individual 1-on-1 posing lessons as much anymore because I have my Posing Wins Shows signature group program; however, since we are traveling the country, I thought it would be fun to pop in on people like you that are listening to the show who would normally NEVER have the opportunity to work with me in person. So I will continue to be doing these 1 on 1 lessons for listeners that want a posing and stage presence overhaul while Im on the road. We posted the tour dates and locations at eeinbb.com so check out our tour and see if I'll be in a city near you. If so, just text our dedicated line 702-637-0091 to set something up at your local gym. Lisa's gym is called Quads gym and is located on North Broadway in Chicago. The parking situation there is a challenge because there are a ton of businesses and residential housing in the area…and ALL the parking is ON street. We arrived about 30 minutes early and spent the entire 30 minutes looking for parking. At the last minute my husband was just going to drop me off, so I wouldn't be late, and by luck a spot in front of the gym opened up so we grabbed it quick. At the front door there is a sign that says that Muscle and Fitness magazine has designated this gym as one of the top gyms in America so immediately I was intrigued. When you walk in there is an immediate good vibe to the place. I could tell that this is a place you come to to get work done. Apparently we just missed Mr Olympia Phil Health who was in the area a week ago and trained out of this gym while he was here. The day pass is $17 so for my husband and I it was a $34 visit. But let me tell you, there is a LOT to offer here for equipment. You would never know when approaching from the street the sheer size of this place. There are two floors plus an additional room on the third floor with the boxing room, which is where I taught my posing lesson with Sarah. The amount of equipment packed into this place is, I don't even know, how many thousands. The most impressive part is the amount of leg equipment. And I don't mean a bunch of the same equipment you see at every gym, I'm taking about very unique equipment. Many old school nautilus machines too. My favorite body part to train is legs, so I was like a kid in a candy store with the amount of different leg devices there are to play with. When you walk the gym there are photos of competitors throughout the gym on every wall. It made me think of the gym I owned where I had photos posted throughout the gym of members doing great things. I called it the walls of inspiration. So it was nice to see all the photos here celebrating the gym members and visitors. As mentioned Lisa and I used the boxing room on the third floor for our session. She was warm and enthusiastic and that only made my time with her more fun and rewarding. Even though she booked an hour session, I ended up spending like three hours with her. Sarah spent weeks trying to create a clinic at her gym. Weeks. She made and posted flyers. That's a lot of effort. Her efforts did not go unnoticed, so even though she paid for a 1 on 1 session, I decided to bring the whole clinic to HER. Lisa is 51 years young getting ready for her first show. How inspiring is that? She has gone to competitions to watch and has watched online posing tutorials to learn how to pose. And just like everyone that has come to my virtual clinics can attest, When you try and recreate what you see in posing tutorials, 9 times out of 10, you don't look anything like what you see….and you have no idea what to do about it. That's where I come in. Sarah learned not just the mechanics of the poses she needs to do, she learned specific foundational exercises, drills, and skills that will help her to not be good as posing, but be incredible at it. You can't build the house without building the foundation first, right? We also worked on her stage walk since the bikini division requires you to focus on your stage presence just as much as you do your posing. Lisa learned some of my signature techniques and drills that have taken people from walking with two left feet to walking like they own a runway. I truly love what I do and I can honestly say that the time flew by. Vassilios knows me and how I lock into a zone when I'm teaching, so he spent the entire time working out and testing out all the fun equipment throughout the gym. I took a few videos while I was teaching so I could provide Lisa some before and after footage, and in the background of one of the videos, you can hear Vassilios grunting. I love always having him nearby. So this gym and my session with Lisa were both a highlight of this trip, but not the only highlight. As mentioned, I've been setting up for my classes in random locations on the road. So far we have traveled through Pennsylvania, stopping in Hershey PA for a day. If you haven't been you should stop in sometime. The town is so clean and very pretty. Last time we were in the area we stopped at the Hershey Chocolate Factory and I made my husband Vassilios ride with me around the factory in the cart in the shape of a gumdrop with me. Isn't he a great sport? He really is my ride or die. This time I didn't make him ride in a gumdrop with me. Instead we stopped for a piece of chocolate at the museum where they just so happen to also have chocolate tastings. Naturally the tasting lasted like 10 minutes. We aren't those people that need to sit there and swirl our glasses around and ooh and ahhh over the flavor of each and every sample. We did notice the different flavors in each of the samples and both agreed that Mr. Hershey's chocolate was superior to the 5 other chocolates we sampled. So we were in and out in less than a half hour. If you ever travel with a husband, you will know, that a stop at a museum that ends in less than 30 minutes will make for a very happy husband. Afterwards we got a workout in and then headed for Pittsburg for the night before we drove to Chicago, where we are now. My husband grew up in Chicago and this is the first time we have gone here together. We have been together for 8 years so this is actually quite special for me. He is showing me around where he grew up and taking me to some of his favorite places to eat. We have had a great balance of getting our macros in while also enjoying some of his favorite places to eat in Chicago. He took me to Gene and Jude's for a hot dog. And then to Johnnies to split a combo steak and sausage sandwich on a hogie. We also met up with some of his family he hasn't seen in years and they treated us to some Chicago deep dish pizza. I'm from a small town in Winsted CT that has a lot of really good homemade food. There are a couple of pizza restaurants that are absolute standouts because of their distinctly different styles and flavors of pizza. Shout out to Kent Pizza in Winsted and Marzano's pizza in Torrington CT. Both these places serve thinner crust so this deep dish Chicago style pizza was a treat for me. The only thing is, the pizza is so thick that I was full after one piece. I do have to say Chicago is a lovely city. The amount of boutique restaurants and shops, the green trees and forest, and the river and bridges, are all stand outs. As you might know I've been a real estate agent and broker for 17 years in CT and I have an app on my phone where I can look up properties anywhere around the country. So as we drive around and I see for sale signs I pull out my handy app and see what the prices and stats are on the houses. I can even see what properties recently sold and how much they sold for. This is how I learn about areas as I travel through them. One of the suburbs we drove through the houses are going for $400/square foot. And you are on .11 acres. I asked a couple workers in the Whole Foods store we stopped in at what the biggest draw is of the area. They both looked at me like I was talking riddles. One person said she lived 15 minutes from here and didn't know the area. The other person said that he used to live somewhat near this area and now lives downtown. Neither could tell me why anyone would live here except to be in the suburbs near Lake Michigan and raise a family. Well there you go. $400/sqft for a house in the suburbs. And here we are strolling on through living in our van. Speaking of the van, you are probably wondering how van life is going. I'd say the most challenging part is the heat at night. The weather has been hot and humid and if you think about it, there is very little air flow in a van unless you have the engine on and running the ac. So we did sweat for a few night before Vassilios got us a battery operated fan. We have been pretty fortunate to find places to sleep every night. We did splurge for two nights after getting a killer deal on a hotel from Hotwire. Sometimes you can really luck out with this app with the flash deals. The trick is you don't know what the hotel is, you only know how many stars it has and you get a list of possible hotels it could be. This time we ended up with a Hampton Inn and Suites hotel. The look on Vassilios' face when we pulled up made me so happy. He was so excited to have a hotel room with air conditioning. That first night we stayed up and watched movies together. It was a real treat. Now we are back in the van but we have our fan now. I'm hoping we have some good luck on the road and we can treat Vassilios to a hotel again. Nothing makes me happier than seeing him so happy. We are now off to Wisconsin for a few days before we head to Minnesota. I am hosting my virtual group posing clinics Monday through Wednesday every week. It's been fun finding and setting up my classes at various locations while on the road. Finding places with wifi has been relatively easy so traveling and teaching online is very doable. By the way, if you are planning to compete in the fall or next spring, you really need to jump on a posing clinic to learn the fundamentals so you know what to practice and WHY. The time is going to fly by and you work too hard to leave any stone unturned. You will leave the clinic with an entirely new perspective. Go to posingpractice.com and grab a spot for only $47. Everyone that has come to one so far has left with their eyes wide open and no longer looks at posing and presentation the same. Another thing going on, I guess this is as good of a time as any to announce it before I sign off, is a new program I have been beta testing. It's a new group program that you might be interested in if you struggle with accountability for your posing practice. Let's face it, practicing the same poses over and over gets old. Posing in front of a mirror isn't super effective because you are staring at yourself and when you are up on stage you do not have a mirror. So if you know the poses you need to execute and want the weekly accountability for a formal posing practice, then go to weeklyposing.com for more info and to join my classes. They are fun, informative, and will take the boring out of posing practice. I'll be posting another recap next week. But before then, stay tuned because we have a special podcast episode launching where we interviewed Bodybuilding Legend Rich Gaspari and talked about the evolution of the supplement industry. You are going to want to hear this one. It jammed packed. Alright guys, I'll see you on social media, or come join my podcast insiders group on Facebook to interact with me. And if you are loving the show, please share in fitness groups on social Media, text it to friends, and, as always, rate and leave a review to help podcast platforms know this show is cool. Talk to you again next week!
Have you ever asked yourself: how can you reflect your client's personality in their images? If you haven't, I highly encourage you to! The more you can reflect the couple's true personality… and NOT try to fit them into a box…, the more they're going to like those images. So when you're getting to know your client's personality, ask yourself, are they: ☀️Bubbly? ☀️Reserved? ☀️Loud? ☀️Calm? Incorporate their personality into their poses, and let them be who they are. If that means they are calmly leaning against a wall with their partner, great! But if that means doing tricks over the swamp here in Louisiana (which has actually happened during a shoot!), that's great, too.
Let's be honest, MOST of us are not super comfortable in front of the camera, so it makes total sense that a lot of your clients won't be either! Being a photographer means that you'll have all different types of personalities in front of your lens, and that's part of what makes this job so fun! But it's important to show up to your session prepared for anything, and we hope that this episode will help when it comes to posing and directing your more camera shy couples.

Insurance agents posing as advisors is more common than you may realize and can create conflicts of interest. The key is having better awareness. Don't get fooled again! In this episode of the Finance for Physicians Podcast, Daniel Wrenne talks about five ways to identify whether you are working with an insurance person who is posing as a financial advisor. Topics Discussed: • Sign #1: Aggressive posers seek you out after making contact or via referrals • Sign #2: Posers offer you free or low-cost financial “advice” • Sign #3: Posers act as trusted advisors; don't refer to themselves as salespeople • Sign #4: Advice and product solutions offered by posers are similar across clients • Sign #5: Agents posing as advisors make it difficult to leave them/their products LINK: www.WrenneFinancial.com Have you ever considered a different way of practicing medicine, whether you are burned out, need a change at pace, or are looking to supplement your income?

A fiendish inner spirit can prompt behavior that defies self-interest and even common sense. In Edgar Allan Poe's story, the protagonist acts on his diabolical urge to commit murder, followed by a self-destructive urge to confess it. Jung says, “If he has done it secretly, without moral consciousness of it, and remains undiscovered, the punishment can nevertheless be visited upon him…” The impulse to take irrational and even immoral risks can cause inner torment and lead to damaging actions. The trickster within tempts us to yield to impulse, succumb to negligence, or be recklessly perverse—simply for the sake of indulging the foolish or forbidden. Posing as merely mischievous, the imp of the perverse proffers a sense of power and grandiosity. He challenges us to meet him with the power of self-reflection, ego strength, and restraint, the components of conscious choice. Here's the dream we analyze: “I am with my wife and child on the North pole. We are in a small cabin. I don't know why we are here or how we got here. It is not a familiar place, but I'm not surprised to be here. There is a blizzard raging outside. Inside it is dark; a fire is burning in a traditional cast iron stove. We huddle together by the fire. I am responsible for the fire. The door blows open, and I can see the white blizzard outside. I fear that my daughter will somehow be sucked into the blizzard. I manage to close the door. I search for firewood, but the cabin is dark and unfamiliar. I venture out into the storm and find some firewood. I return inside to tend to the fire. I find my wife and daughter asleep by the stove.” REFERENCES: Edgar Allan Poe stories online: https://poestories.com/read/imp GIVE US A HAND!
