In this episode, we host Kavita & Anand (Co-Founders at Voiro) to talk about Ad-Tech Industry. We're all familiar with how big the Digital Ads market has grown over the last decade. To put some numbers, in 2012, the Global Digital Ad spend was close to $100 Billion. Today, that stands at more than 600 Billion dollars - a healthy 20% growth every year. In the next few years, $1 Trillion dollars will be spent on Digital Ads globally. With the rise of Ad Spends, the technology that supports that industry, often called as Ad-Tech has seen an exponential rise. As we've often discussed on the podcast, selling shovels during a gold rush is a great way to build a large, profitable business. Today, Voiro is a SaaS Platform that helps media companies run their Ads business, and in the last 9 years, they've had a ring-side view of this meteoric rise of the Ad-Tech market. What makes their journey even more interesting is that they've part of the team that runs the Indian Premier League's Ad's business! Practically from Day 1 of Hotstar, in fact it wasn't even called hotstar back then. We'll first talk about how they went from build a service business to build a software product, then we'll talk about the landscape shift that's happened from broadcast to digital technology, then we talk about how the entire world of Ad-Tech come together to form a value chain and lastly we talk about the emerging trends of privacy, regulation and content creation.  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------If you like the content we create, I need 30 seconds of your time to help us reach more people.

I grew up hearing, "You never until you try." I wish I could say that trying was always easy. My biggest fears as a kid involved girls. Go figure. Logically, I was bold. Practically, I was a coward. My best friend had a girlfriend, but no car. I had a car, but no girlfriend. He wanted to go out on a double date so he began pressuring me to ask out somebody. Anybody. I had a friend - she was in our social circle and we shared many classes - who I liked. She was attractive and popular. We were at his house mulling over a strategy and I mentioned I'd like to ask her out. He was less than encouraging telling me that she'd never go out with me. Stupid on his part since he had no car and was wanting me to ask out somebody. Oh well. We were 16 and not terribly savvy about such things. I pushed back asking him, "What's the worst thing that can happen? She rejects me." His stupidity continued though, "And she tells everybody she knows, which is EVERYBODY." I'm in his room thinking that if she does that it'll have a lifespan of less than a day. High school drama about something so small is sure to be bested by something larger within a 24-hour high school news cycle. But I was scared. Scared to dial the number. Scared to talk to her. Inexperience does that, which is why my favorite quote remains... Everything is hard until it's easy. Nothing about this was easy. Dealing with my friend. Working up the courage to figure out what to do, and what to say. Controlling my heart rate. It was all hard. Eventually, I dialed the number and asked her. She accepted and my buddy was completely blown away. The guy just didn't know when to quit being stupid. It took a while before he celebrated the fact that we now had the double date booked - the double date he was desperate to make happen. No, at this moment after I hung up the successful phone call he was dog-piling the whole situation with disbelief that the endeavor had proven successful. I didn't know if I could, but I tried. Turns out I could get a date with a girl who my buddy thought was beyond the reach of a troglodyte like me. I was younger than 16 when I first picked up a guitar. I wanted to learn. So I bought a book. I tried. Well, okay, maybe that's too strong a term to describe my effort. And maybe I was less motivated for this endeavor than I was in asking a girl out for a date. Weeks passed and it seemed to me that my mind just wasn't going to cooperate with me learning the play the guitar. Even if my mind did kick in, I wasn't sure my hands would comply. Besides, there sure seemed to be a lot of math-like skills required. YouTube didn't yet exist. Neither did the Internet. Cable TV either. We were still burying dinosaurs in those days so everything was harder! I don't think I lasted a month. I gave up. I tried and failed...destined to own guitars from then on, but never being able to play on. Trying doesn't insure success. Trying harder won't either. Sometimes we fail no matter how hard or how long we work at it. During a late-night headphone music session Gavin DeGraw's song, "I'm Gonna Try" began to play. It's an older 2013 song of his that I hadn't listened to in a while. I'd already been thinking about a few things I wanted to try as we're making some changes in our life. I wasn't thinking too much about whether or not I could because most of the things I was pondering were things I was 100% confident I could do. I had been thinking about time together with my wife. There's lots of time wasted apart doing what has to be done to sustain life. Tons of things involved in just daily living. You know. We all know. Our to-do list never seems to get fully done. It's less of a list and more like a never-ending cycle. A hamster wheel of daily activities that suck our time. Well, I was thinking about how one big goal I have is to live a life with the shortest possible to-do list. The kind of to-do list required of all of us - think ...

Which Camera System Has the Best Animal Detection Autofocus?

If you're curious about animal detection autofocus in your camera, then you've come to the right place. We've been curious about it too. What's more, each camera system takes its own approach to how to do it. And it can be very confusing to some folks. At other times, it can be really frustrating. So we're looking at animal detection on various camera systems. You can view this article and much more with minimal ads in our brand new app for iOS, iPadOS, and Android. What is Animal Detection Animal detection differs depending on the camera system. A lot of them incorporate animal and bird detection together. Sony is the major full-frame camera manufacturer that doesn't do this. But basically, it tells the autofocus to look at the scene and prioritize autofocusing on an animal instead of a human, bike, car, etc. Lucky for you, we've reviewed tons of cameras that do this. For the record, we've tested all of the cameras that we're talking about in this post. Canon With Canon cameras, there are a few ways to autofocus. The system can look at a scene and recognize certain things. If you set it to animal vs. human, it will detect all sorts of animals. We've used the Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, Canon EOS R7, and the Canon EOS R3 in animal detection. Each time, it has found both birds and mammals with no issues in animal detection mode. Practically speaking, this means that you're less likely to miss shots. You can be walking around in the forest and have your camera set to animal mode with ease. You can be photographing chipmunks one moment and hawks another moment. Otherwise, you'd need to physically move the autofocus point over the subject to get focus. That's often much harder when it comes to focusing on a bird through trees. But a system that recognized the warbler in the trees can get it faster. Best Cameras for Animal Detection and Bird Detection: Canon EOS R5 Canon EOS R6 Canon EOS R3 Canon EOS R7 Nikon Update September 2022: The Nikon Z9 is the most innovative camera when it comes to animal detection for Nikon. It bundles birds and animals together. We've used the Z9 in our review, and found it to be much better than the Z7 II and Z6 II, which only have detection for basically pets. We've also known that the Z9 has improved with autofocus updates. Best Cameras for Animal Detection and Bird Detection: Nikon Z9 Sony Sony has a complicated but effective system. If you take the Sony a1 or even an older camera like the Sony a7r III into the forest to photograph birds and animals, you'll need to set the camera accordingly. The Sony a1, in bird-detection mode, won't do so well getting your dog in focus when you turn your camera to it. As a result, you'll have to go quickly into the menu system and then switch it to animal focus priority. It also works well with the Sony a7 IV. We've done this, and it's been pretty annoying at times. Best Cameras for Animal Detection and Bird Detection: Sony A1 Sony a7 IV Fujifilm Update September 2022: Fujifilm has finally entered the wildlife world! They separate animal from bird detection and have two cameras that can do it. There's the XH2, which is slower than its older sibling, the XH2s. The latter is designed for speed, and with the right lenses, it can perform very well. Best Cameras for Animal Detection and Bird Detection: Fujifilm XH2s Panasonic With a camera like the Panasonic S5, you'll be able to use animal-autofocus detection to photograph birds. There are also Micro Four Thirds cameras like the G9 and GH5 II that can do it. It does a pretty good job overall, but effectively tracking the subjects isn't as good as it is with Sony and Canon. Even when you adjust the focusing profiles, it just doesn't have the same hit rate. Best Cameras for Animal Detection and Bird Detection: Panasonic S5 Panasonic GH5 II OM System The Olympus OMD EM1x has autofocus for animals and birds. But it's really not that great. According to our review: “For wildlife, I walked away very disappointed at the fa...

For many people, the animals they adopt and love become more like family members than pets. We have deep relationships, with cats, dogs, parrots, goats, horses, and other fellow critters – who at least pretend to love us back, providing comfort and joy all around. Sadly though, life for all of us animals is a spin around the wheel of fortune, so illness and injuries happen. That's why one of the most valued members of every community are the staffers in our local veterinarian office. Practically all vets, nurses, technicians, and support staff are there chiefly because they love animals and get personal satisfaction from providing care for them. When I say they are “there,” I not only mean 9 to 5, but this group of independent health providers are committed to being there when needed – including off hours and days off, for animal misfortune and suffering don't go by clocks and calendars. Local practitioners also try to be there for low-income people, offering deferred payment plans and even discounted fees so their animals can get the treatment they need. But wait – sound the ambulance sirens! Something is going horribly wrong! This venerable profession has recently been collapsing into a corporate model of Wall Street owned chains. They are monopolizing markets, reducing staff, gutting service, and prioritizing the love of money over the love of animals. It's not uncommon these days for franticly-worried customers to bring an ill or injured pet into their old reliable vet office only to find it has quietly come under chain ownership, is understaffed, and is unwilling to accept the patient, forcing a desperate scramble to find emergency care, often out of town. This is Jim Hightower saying... The same profiteering corporate mentality that has proven disastrous for human health care is now rapidly locking down pet care – and that's an act of animal cruelty.

On the Secret Witch Show today our guest is Alexandra Pope.  Alexandra and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer are the co-founders of Red School, authors of the Hay House books Wild Power and the soon to be released Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging. They spent over 10,000 hours researching and refining their radical new approach to health, creativity, leadership and spiritual life. And the best bit? It's rooted in the bloody, wild, radical power of the menstrual cycle and menopause.  Their new book - Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging, is being released on 20th September 2022. In this magical episode, Alexandra and Nicole explore menopause as a powerful initiatory portal for reclaiming power and the potential of our souls, diving into the Wise Woman archetype and how it is an especially potent one for the Witch, as well as how we can reframe the cultural narrative around menopause to rediscover its hidden medicinal gifts.  Whilst this episode is framed around the menopause, it's really one full of gold for any woman to listen to, because it is really all about the power of initiation into soul.     What You'll Learn from this Episode:   The menopause is ultimately an initiation that awakens the power within us; and really, it is a descent into soul. That means it isn't all smooth-sailing because - unless you've done the deep work to connect to your Wise Woman via the power of your cycle, which makes it a smoother ride, like Alexandra had - descents to soul aren't all rosy There becomes a clear “No”, along with an opening to your deeper calling, often, at menopause - where you are being called deeper into your power - into a deeper purpose that is asking you to listen, and it becomes time to trust your body and its wisdom. Often women can experience this the same way via the initiation of the Wise Woman - who can be initiated earlier, via illness like Chronic Fatigue, or some other deeper calling - where we learn deep lessons about listening to our bodies and their deep wisdom.   Menopause can kick us in the ass as a right of passage - it demands from us that we meet oursleves - and the invitation is to allow ourselves to be touched and moved - to not be in victim to our bodies, but to make a deeper choice to make something meaningful from the sensations.  We have to trust that there's something wanting to come through us, and drop out egoic agenda and trust the work of soul It is often seen as a problem in our culture.  It can feel like we have been broken open in this initiation, but if we harness and trust our power there, it is so worth it.  It opens us to incredible magic. Practically, we have to support ourselves through this initiation by tending our nervous systems, our bodies, allowing our rage to express and celebrating ourselves and the magic that is unfolding. Ultimately, it is all a death and rebirth - as who our soul came to express as.

G7 leaders have been cogitating a cap on the price of Russian oil as a mechanism of driving down Russia's energy revenues without causing a surge in global oil markets. Ehsan Khoman, Head of Emerging Markets Research (EMEA), believes that theoretically, such a price cap – if fully and successfully realised – would permit Russian oil flows while concurrently achieving Europe's strategy of limiting Russian energy receipts. Practically, however, he suggests that there are no guarantees that Russia would agree to ship its oil at capped prices – particularly if the cap is close to production costs. Such retaliatory action runs the risk of elevating global energy prices, fanning the flames of global inflation and worsening the already acute cost-of-living crisis.

“No one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be spilled, and the skins will be ruined. Rather, new wine must be poured into fresh wineskins.”  Luke 5:37What is this new wine?  And what are the old wineskins? The new wine is the new life of grace we have been blessed with in abundance and the old wineskins are our old fallen natures and the old law.  What Jesus is telling us is that if we wish to receive His grace and mercy in our lives we must allow Him to transform our old selves into new creations and embrace the new law of grace.  Have you become a new creation?  Have you allowed your former self to die so that the new person can rise again?  What does it mean to become a new creation in Christ so that the new wine of grace can be poured into your life?Becoming a new creation in Christ means that we live on a whole new level and no longer cling to our former ways.  It means that God does powerful things in our lives far beyond anything we could ever do by ourselves.  It means we have become a new and fit “wineskin” for God to be poured into.  And it means that this new “wine” is the Holy Spirit taking hold of and possessing our lives.Practically speaking, if we are made a new creation in Christ then we are properly prepared to receive the grace of the Sacraments and all that comes our way through daily prayer and worship.  But the first goal must be to become those new wineskins.  So how do we do this?We do it by Baptism and then by intentionally choosing to turn from sin and embrace the Gospel.  But this general command from God, to turn from sin and embrace the Gospel, must be very intentional and lived daily.  As we make daily practical and intentional decisions to turn to Christ in all things, we will discover that the Holy Spirit suddenly, powerfully and immediately pours the new wine of grace into our lives.  We will discover a new peace and joy that fills us and we will have strength beyond our own ability.  Reflect, today, upon whether or not you are truly a new creation in Christ.  Have you turned from your former way and shed the shackles that bound you?  Have you embraced the new full Gospel and do you daily allow God to pour forth the Holy Spirit in your life?  Lord, please do make me a new creation.  Transform me and renew me completely.  May my new life in You be one that continually receives the full outpouring of Your grace and mercy.  Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2022 My Catholic Life!

Practically as soon as it got off the ground, Dream Pops was already under pressure. Founder and CEO David Greenfeld admits that launching the platform brand of plant-based, indulgent desserts and candy via a direct-to-consumer model – a strategy that almost bankrupted the company – was a mistake. However, lessons learned – and shared – have given Dream Pops a foundation to disrupt multi-billion dollar categories. Launched in 2018, the company aims to challenge legacy confectionary brands by giving consumers better-for-you options across four product lines, including its flagship coconut milk-based popsicles and shelf-stable chocolate-coated snacks sweetened with coconut sugar. The brand is sold in over 6,500 stores, including nationally at Whole Foods as well as locations of Wegmans, H.E.B. and Harris Teeter, among others. Dream Pops' innovation and retail strategy is bolstered by its active social media presence, which Greenfeld says “completely changed the trajectory of the company.” Greenfeld has over 44,000 followers on LinkedIn and points to constant engagement on the platform as driving significant interest in Dream Pops among industry professionals. Meanwhile, the brand's early embrace of TikTok has helped it attract over 181,000 fans and millions of views of its short videos. Within this episode, Greenfeld spoke about the origins of Dream Pops, how he navigated a myriad of challenges in the frozen aisle, the duality of better-for-you and indulgent food and how he used the popsicles as a proof of concept and springboard into shelf-stable products. He also explained why every CPG company needs to also be a “content company,” the importance of investing in merchandising and why consistency is the most important aspect of Dream Pops' social media strategy.   Show notes: 0:42: Interview: David Greenfeld, Founder/CEO, Dream Pops – Greenfeld sat down with Taste Radio   editor Ray Latif and chatted about his experience as a finalist in NOSH Pitch Slam 3, his method and process for gaining followers and influence on Linkedin, and what motivates him to invest in early-stage companies. He also discussed the meaning and importance of the brand name, why he was bullish on the frozen aisle, how the term “plant-based” has evolved in recent years and its impact on the development of Dream Pops. Later, he spoke about the company's roadmap for innovation and new product development, applying learnings from merchandising in the frozen set to ambient shelves and whether it's too late for brands to now start incorporating TikTok into their social media strategies.

Universal Call to HolinessEach person is created in the image and likeness of God and he or she is of inestimable worth. Human dignity is the greatest equality in our world. People may come from different cultures, times, places, and creeds, but they all have human dignity in common. This worth is not without a purpose. Created by the grace and love of God, we are ordered towards eternity with Him in Heaven. In short, we are called to be saints.In Latin, the word for “saint” and the word for “holy” are the same: sanctus. Sanctus means to be set apart or consecrated [the assumption here is consecrated for a purpose]. The call to be a saint is universal and applies to each and every person. What is more astounding is that this call is remarkably individual. God's call to be holy and thus to share in His own blessed life is offered to us in a way that we will understand, if we have ears to hear. How, then, can we grow in our ability to hear the voice of God? How can we have eyes to see more readily His grand design for our life? How can we become more disposed to God's grace and cooperation with His grace? One of the most practical tools in this endeavor is the life of virtue.Fullness of Christian Life and Perfection of CharityThe Second Vatican Council makes this call explicit in the Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium). The Council fathers write, “All Christians… are called to the fullness of Christian life and to the perfection of charity (LG 40).” And lest we believe that we have attained the pinnacle of growth of virtue, St. Gregory of Nyssa reminds us: “Christian perfection has but one limit, that of having none.” Certainly, there is no more important effort in our lives than cooperation with grace ordered towards communion with God. If we make progress in virtue, then we make progress in holiness. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, “Spiritual progress tends towards ever more intimate union with Christ (CCC 2014).” Not to belabor the point but it is worth saying again: any progress we make is the fruit of God's grace in our lives. What is a Virtue?The Catechism defines virtue in the following way: “A virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do the good (CCC 1803).” We do not fall into virtue haphazardly. A firm disposition is required for virtue. Regular and habitual performance is also necessary. Finally, it is an action and disposition which firmly intends towards the good. The Catechism rightly shows that these good actions are not to inflate our pride and make us feel good. Rather, they are ordered to communion with God and to become like Him. In the words of the Catechism: virtue “allows the person not only to perform good acts, but to give the best of himself… the goal of a virtuous life is to become like God (CCC 1803).” The Theological VirtuesThe life of virtue is ordered to God but it also originates in God. He gives us the grace to be virtuous. Prior to Baptism, the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity swirl around us and woo us into the salvific life of the Christian. Then, after entering through the door of Baptism, we receive these tremendous gifts as an indwelling of God's own life in our soul. We receive faith to be able to know and believe what God has revealed. We receive hope which is sure and certain that if we love God and heed His commands then we will forever behold the beatific vision in paradise. And we receive the virtue of charity which makes possible everything that we do. God's own love and life is charity, for God is love. All things were created out of His sheer goodness and love; His love is the ground of being. All three of these remarkable theological virtues are not something that we can grow in on our own volition. God gives them, we receive them, and then we choose to cooperate freely with them or squander them. Then, we can ask for a greater share in faith, hope, and charity. In this respect, we are habitual and firm in our disposition to cooperate with God's grace to do the good.The Human VirtuesAside from the theological virtues, are there virtues which we CAN grow in by our free use of them? Are there virtues we can strengthen like going to the gym to strengthen our muscles? These are called the human virtues.The Catechism says that the human virtues are “firm attitudes, stable dispositions, habitual perfections of intellect and will that govern our actions, order our passions, and guide our conduct according to reason and faith (CCC 1804).” In other words, the virtues allow us to be in control of our actions, emotions, and overall conduct. The final note from the Catechism here should not pass without comment: our actions and conduct should be in accordance with reason and faith. Doing whatever we want is not virtuous. Doing what God wants is. So, it should be very clear that the virtues are part and parcel of living the Christian life and answering the universal call to holiness.The Cardinal VirtuesBefore we explore the human virtues in more detail, I would like to spend a few moments on the cardinal virtues. The word cardinal comes from the Latin word for hinge. On these virtues all the other human virtues hinge. They are prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Let's see what the Catechism has to say on each.“Prudence disposes practical reason to discern our true good in every circumstance and to choose the right means of achieving it (CCC 1806).” It is called the charioteer of the virtues. St. Thomas Aquinas said that it is “right reason in action.”“Justice consists in the constant and firm will to give their due to God and neighbor. Through it, we are disposed to respect the rights of each and to establish in human relationships the harmony that promotes equity with regard to persons and to the common good (CCC 1807).”“Fortitude is the moral virtue that ensures firmness in difficulties and constancy in the pursuit of the good. It strengthens the resolve to resist temptations and to overcome obstacles in the moral life (CCC 1808).”“Temperance is the moral virtue that moderates the attraction of pleasures and provides balance in the use of created goods. It ensures the will's mastery over instincts and keeps desires within the limits of what is honorable (CCC 1809).”How Do We Acquire Human Virtues?How do we actually go about acquiring human virtues? The first way is by education. We must never tire of allowing ourselves to be formed more and more in the life of virtue. Virtues are habitual and deliberate. Therefore, we must persevere in repeated efforts to cooperate with God's grace. By His goodness, our character is forged and our intellect and will are freer to practice the good. We will know that we are growing in virtue when we are truly happy to practice virtue.Pursuing virtue will not always be easy. Living in a world wounded by sin, it is difficult to maintain balance in the virtuous life. With God's grace, we must continue to live a life in the Church with the sacraments, read Scripture regularly, take time each day for prayer, cooperate with the Holy Spirit, and be docile to what He calls us to love and what to shun. Intention and deliberation follow from cooperation in the spiritual order: grace always goes first.In Medio Stat Virtus - In the Middle Stands the VirtueAristotle, the great Greek philosopher, once quipped: “In medio stat virtus” - In the middle stands the virtue. Living a life of virtue is a balancing act. Practically speaking, we do not want a deficiency or a disproportionate emphasis. For example, if we go too far towards the excess of justice, we will lose mercy. But if we have a deficiency and we stray away from justice towards what we think is mercy, we are not being just at all.In another example, if we are trying so hard to be prudent that we do not act, this is an excess of virtue. However, if we are deficient in prudence, we will act rashly and unadvisedly. Neither excess or deficiency is meritorious and virtuous. There is a chart (below) which has a listing of virtues in the middle column and the deficiencies on the left and excesses on the right. I hope that this visual is helpful to be able to see how virtue is often found in the mean between two extremes. In practicing virtue, we must continually examine our actions at the end of each day. Begin by giving thanks to God for the times when you were able to choose virtue recognizing that His grace allowed this. Then, sort through some times when virtuous acts strayed towards deficiency or excess. Finding this balance is a lifelong struggle. Run, but do not grow weary! The life of virtue is worth it. The more you and I embrace virtue, the happier we will be, in the ways that actually matter.Thank you for reading Will Wright Catholic.

Rule #1: Never Forget - God Is The Owner Of Everything. You Are A Steward

The theme this week on the Retirement Quick Tips Podcast is: 5 Personal Finance Rules for 20-Somethings. Today's final money rule is: Never forget: God is the owner of everything. You are a steward What does this mean? My kids are my kids, in the sense that they don't belong to anyone else. But they are also God's children, and are entrusted to me. I have a tremendous responsibility to raise them in the faith and do everything I can to ensure that by the time they reach adulthood, they have a deep relationship with Jesus. Money works the same way. It's your money in the sense that you have property rights and your house, car, 401k, etc. have your name on them. But the ultimate owner of everything you have is God.  I talked to one of my clients recently. She's in her 40s, single, no kids, and makes about $350,000 a year. I was scratching my head because she had less than $100,000 saved for retirement, and is only saving about 3% of her income each year. At her age and income level, she should have a lot more saved. When I dug a little deeper, I discovered that she spends virtually everything she makes and has no breathing room in her finances for anything else.  Having the breathing room in your finances no matter if you make $350,000 or $35,000 a year is key to not being stressed about money all the time.  That breathing room is essential for living in a gospel-centered way with the income that you are a steward of, because it will allow you to be generous with your giving and make saving for the future possible. No breathing room means that every dollar you earn is selfishly spent on you and your needs alone. You are not being a steward, you are only acting in your own self-interest.  Practically this means that when you look at your finances, where is your money going every month. A good place to start is to make sure you're not spending more on entertainment or eating out, or your particular fun category, than you are on charitable giving to your parish and other causes. If you flew first class on your last vacation, but you only put $5 a week in the collection basket, you're not acting like a steward.  That's it for today. Thanks for listening!

Joining me to talk about Ivan Reitman's fan-favourite Arnold Schwarzenegger & Danny DeVito buddy comedy TWINS are two hosts of a podcast that could be the twin podcast to Verbal Diorama; Drew and Matt from Sequel Pitch! I know, right! Practically twins! While we only have three fathers between us, not six, our podcasts were separated at birth, only to find each other much later. Very much like the story of Julius and Vincent Benedict, coincidentally also the names of Matt's twin daughters. Arnold Schwarzenegger was known as an '80s action hero, following hits like The Terminator and Commando. He wanted to branch out into comedy and a chance meeting with Ivan Reitman at a ski resort would give him the chance. The idea they pitched to Universal was simple: Schwarzenegger. DeVito. Twins. Together Reitman, Schwarzenegger and DeVito would also take no up-front salary, but instead a portion of the profits, which would yield a unexpected and unprecedented windfall for all three. This episode is also filled with way more innuendo an '80s buddy comedy should facilitate, as well as some great Arnie impressions.

Chris Cranston, MPT, CCRP, as both a Physical Therapist and a Small Animal Rehabilitationist, often hears, "I didn't know there is Physical Therapy for dogs," quickly followed by, "What conditions do you treat? And how do you do it?" The truth is that the techniques used for people (manual therapies, therapeutic exercises, modalities, education) and expected outcomes (decreased pain, improved function, increased strength, restored motion) are very similar for animals. Practically anything that is treated in people with physical therapy (orthopedic, neurologic, obesity, conditioning) can be treated in pets.  Of course, there are some notable differences!  Pets can't speak so picking up on nonverbal signals and gaining trust is part of the PT skillset. They also can't do exercises on their own, so owner and pets must work together for treatment to work.  However, anatomy, biomechanics, and disease processes are more similar than different. Listen to Chris, as one of the first 100 certified canine rehabilitation practitioners in the world, share her lesson from 20 years of working with animals in Massachusetts.  But according to Chris, whether treating people or animals, the satisfaction of helping them to feel better and improve their function is rewarding, fulfilling, and just plain awesome!Find Chris at PetAbility or email her at ChrisCranstonK9PT@gmail.comPetAbility is sponsored by ADogsBestLifeBox.com when you subscribe to receive their awesome enrichment kits by using the coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10% on your first order and get your free gift, Scout and About Compact Training Pouch (waterproof, clip-on treat pouch with a built in squeaker!)PetAbility is sponsored by HedzUpPets watercollars at SaveDogsFromDrowning.com when you purchase your own watercollar by using coupon code PETPOD22 to save 10%.DisclaimerThe contents of the PetAbilityTM  podcast are for informational purposes only.   The host(s) and their guests make no claims, warranties or representations about the content of these podcasts, or the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of their content.

Does Jesus Want us to be Social Justice Warriors?

What are the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching?Human beings are social, by nature; we do not live in isolation. The teachings of the Church regarding good social ordering springs from the heart of Christ. We are called to holiness, but this call requires cooperation with those around us to be authentic followers of Jesus.To understand how we are to order our society, we need to heed Catholic Social Teaching (CST). The U.S bishops offers us seven themes of CST: 1) the Life and Dignity of the Human Person, 2) the Call to Family, Community, and Participation, 3) Rights and Responsibilities, 4) the Option for the Poor and Vulnerable, 5) The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers, 6) Solidarity, and 7) Care for God's Creation. To His disciples, Jesus says, “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me (Mt 25:40).” And He also says, “… what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me (Mt 25:45).” This implies that there must be action taken by the members of the Body of Christ in each of the seven themes.Does Jesus, therefore, ask us to be social justice warriors? Do we need to take on one of the themes as a project? Or do we need to try to tackle all seven? Some, in the Church, fight for the dignity of life while others focus more on stewardship of the environment. Both are doing these actions out of love of Christ and His creation. However, what I hope we will see in their examination is two things: 1) all seven themes are important and 2) they must be prioritized. 1. The Life and Dignity of the Human PersonHuman life is created in the image and likeness of God. Therefore, each person has dignity and a right to life from the moment of conception in the womb until they draw their final breath. Human life is sacred, which means that it has been set apart. The Church fills out this meaning by calling us to sainthood. Human life is under direct attack from the evils of abortion and euthanasia, which are unacceptable under any circumstance. There is also a threat to the value of human life from embryonic stem cell research, cloning, and the imprudent use of the death penalty. There are unjust wars, acts of terrorism, and acts of violence in our world.Catholic social teaching exhorts nations to find peaceful solutions to disputes whenever possible. However, a nation or an individual has the right and obligation to protect innocent human life when it is threatened. The preservation of innocent human life is a principle contained in this theme of the life and dignity of the human person.2. The Call to Family, Community, and ParticipationIn 1960, the global divorce rate was 12%. Divorce is also a violence to a couple because marriage is a lifelong union. There is no such thing as a clean divorce; someone is always harmed. For this reason, the Church tenderly reaches out to those who have suffered divorce to offer the healing of Christ. A few years ago, the global divorce rate was 44%. In the United States, the rate is 46%, 42% in the United Kingdom, and 38% in Australia. With such high divorce rates, it is not uncommon to see broken families. Catholic social teaching upholds that the person is sacred, but that the person is also social. Our economics, politics, laws, policies, and social institutions must therefore defend marriage and the family. Without the family being at the core, these social institutions will erode and eventually break apart. With crumbling families, the need for community has never been more important. It is our obligation as Catholics to reach out to our fellow man, especially the poor and vulnerable. All are called, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity to seek the common good.Our participation in our community is not negotiable. We need our brothers and sisters and they need us. Our world has become increasingly isolated which is contrary to God's design for us as individuals and as a society. As a result, rates of mental illness and suicide have skyrocketed. As Catholics, we are called to breathe life into our communities, in Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit. 3. Rights and Responsibilities For communities to thrive and uphold the dignity of human life, rights must be protected and responsibilities met. Pope St. John XXIII enumerates these rights: “We must speak of man's rights. Man has the right to live.  He has the right to bodily integrity and to the means necessary for the proper development of life, particularly food, clothing, shelter, medical care, rest, and, finally, the necessary social services. In consequence, he has the right to be looked after in the event of ill health; disability stemming from his work; widowhood; old age; enforced unemployment; or whenever through no fault of his own he is deprived of the means of livelihood (Pacem in Terris, 11).”Every natural right begins with the right to life, because without life there are no other rights. The natural rights listed by Pope St. John XXIII lead to the duty of the state and individuals to protect the rights of others. There is also a responsibility to use these rights well in the service of God and man. We are not free to do whatever we please; we are free to choose the good. This is how rights and responsibilities are two sides of the same coin.4. The Option for the Poor and VulnerableIn nations ravaged by communism, there is an ever-widening gap between the super-rich and the ultra-poor. In areas of unfettered capitalism and many types of socialism, there is likewise a disappearing middle class. In other words, societies that do not care for the poor and vulnerable tend to lead to the poor getting poorer and the rich getting richer.The Catholic Church has always upheld the call of Christ Himself to the corporal works of mercy. The needs of the poor and vulnerable must come before our own. This is called the preferential option for the poor. Do I feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for the ill, visit the imprisoned, and bury the dead? Notice I said “Do I?” It is not enough for our parish to do these things; in one way or another, we will be individually judged by God on whether we personally contributed to these efforts in service of Christ, according to the circumstances of our own lives.5. The Dignity of Work and the Rights of WorkersWork has dignity because it is a participation in the creation of God. Further, economies exist to serve the people in a society. We do not work simply to make money. If work has dignity, then the rights of workers should be protected. The U.S. bishops summarized the rights of workers very well: “All people have the right to economic initiative, to productive work, to just wages and benefits, to decent working conditions, as well as to organize and join unions or other associations. (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, A Catholic Framework for Economic Life, no. 5).” 6. SolidarityAll of our earthly fathers share in the Fatherhood of God; they are a sort of “icon” of the Father. Our Father in Heaven has called us His own through the waters of Baptism. Therefore, in Christ, we are all brothers and sisters; we have become co-heirs to the kingdom. Beyond our own belonging to the Mystical Body of Christ, we also share in our one Creator. Therefore, we all belong to one human family, regardless of nation, race, ethnicity, economic or ideological differences. Recent technological shifts and globalization have made this reality clearer (while unfortunately undermining solidarity in key ways - but that's a whole other episode). The fact is that we are connected. Our solidarity with our one human family spurs us to pursue true justice and peace. In the midst of sufferings, especially violence and conflict, we are called by the Church to work for peace, in solidarity with one another.7. Care for God's CreationOur Holy Father, Pope Francis, followed suit after Pope St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, and wrote beautifully on the care for our common home in his work: Laudato Si. In this document, he writes, “Once we start to think about the kind of world we are leaving to future generations, we look at things differently; we realize that the world is a gift which we have freely received and must share with others. Since the world has been given to us, we can no longer view reality in a purely utilitarian way, in which efficiency and productivity are entirely geared to our individual benefit (Laudato Si, 159).”Caring for God's Creation is part and parcel of the Catholic life. In our throw away culture, we realize that the environment is impacted by wastefulness and the dignity of human life is impacted by a disregard for the poor. Everything in God's creation is connected, and we must seek to serve God and our fellow man in all things.Applying These Themes in Our LivesSo, how do we actually go about applying these principles to our lives? Over the course of history, there have been hundreds of different cultures, customs, circumstances, political systems, and so forth. It stands to reason that the practical instantiation of these principles will vary due to the tangible situation of a particular time, people, and place. The seven themes of Catholic social teaching fall under the unflinching category of Faith and Morals. Faith and Morals have been infallibly declared by the teaching authority of the Church and they apply to all places, times, peoples, and circumstances. This means that Catholics of good will are not at liberty to disagree on these central teachings of the Church, in principle.The key distinction is: principle vs. application.Catholic political and social engagement, or tangible application of principles, can be called prudential judgment. Prudential judgment is making decisions, in line with the Faith and Morals of the Church, using the virtue of prudence. “Prudence is the virtue that disposes practical reason to discern our true good in every circumstance and to choose the right means of achieving it; ‘the prudent man looks where he is going.' (CCC 1806)”Prudential judgment takes practice, listening to God, and being formed in the principles of Catholic teaching - and the other teachings of Faith and Morals of the Church, of course. The solutions Catholics may take on social welfare systems, minimum wage, and other political issues will and can vary from person to person. Further, what works well in one area of the world may be wholly inappropriate in another locale. Rarely is anything black and white. However, there is usually a solution which borrows from one side and another. This is the perennial Catholic both/and position, and a reminder that we need both “conservative” and “liberal” forces in the application of principles.Need to PrioritizeIn the application of the seven themes of Catholic social teaching, it is important to prioritize. We cannot tackle all seven at once. It really is a team effort. But, we must let the Lord lead the way. We cannot think of any of the seven themes as pet projects. We are a Church of Christ not a church of causes!The trick then becomes: who decides the prioritization? The key principle we need to utilize is subsidiarity.The Principle of SubsidiarityTo make the best decision possible, the Church employs the organizing principle of subsidiarity. Basically, this principle states that the best decisions for a local community are made at the lowest possible level and the highest level necessary. In the hierarchy of the Church, the Pope makes decisions based on the common good of the whole Church on earth, whereas a local bishop makes decisions only in his particular geographical area or diocese. Likewise, a pastor represents his bishop and makes decisions for his own parish and parish boundaries. However, subsidiarity is best shown by the family: the foundational cell of society. Parents make decisions for their family, especially their children, without overreach from the local, state, or federal government. The family then makes decisions with other families at the local community and parish level. If the decision needs broader input, then it might fall to the state or eventually the federal government. Subsidiarity, once again, dictates that if the family has the power to make and implement the decision, then they alone should do so. Practically, an example of something that might take federal reach would be border security or a standing military. These are out of the reach of a smaller level of governance (individual, family, community, or state). If an entity has proper authority and they are the closest to the situation, they ought to make the decision. Pope Pius XI illustrates this principle and safeguards the diversity of humanity and richness of her talents when he says, “… it is gravely wrong to take from individuals what they can accomplish by their own initiative and industry and give it to the community, so also it is an injustice and at the same time a grave evil and disturbance of right order to assign to a greater and higher association what lesser and subordinate organizations can do (QA 79).”The Common GoodSubsidiarity is always ordered to the common good. This means that governments have the solemn responsibility to create the conditions of human flourishing. The proper authorities must be ready to provide the resources and direction necessary to direct the community to the common good. Each individual has something to offer and ought to be engaged in their own welfare as well. Pope Benedict XVI puts it this way:“Subsidiarity respects personal dignity by recognizing in the person a subject who is always capable of giving something to others (CV 57).”  Subsidiarity transcends any political system or political affiliation. This guiding principle represents the great Catholic both/and. We have an obligation to the poor and vulnerable and to maintain the dignity and productivity of all people. In other words, subsidiarity must be linked to the principle of Catholic social teaching of solidarity! If we have subsidiarity without solidarity, society becomes disconnected and privatized to the extreme. If we have solidarity but no subsidiarity, society “gives way to paternalistic social assistance that is demeaning to those in need (CV 58).”A Proper PrioritizingA proper prioritization of Catholic social teaching will, therefore, apply the principle of subsidiarity. If human dignity is under attack by abortion or euthanasia, then that takes first priority. Protecting human dignity is the preeminent issue to address because without life, no other right matters, and it is manifestly opposed to the common good of all. Then, We must shore up the family as the cell of society. Our families must work together to secure the rights of those around us and fulfill our responsibilities to one another, In justice, the virtuous pursuit of rights and responsibilities must have a preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, who must never be forgotten and brought further into the community, Of course, a community needs participation, but specifically in the form of dignified work and the rights of workers which must be protected, Further, our society, now solidly functioning at the local level must never lose sight of our solidarity, our interconnectedness, and, to some extent, this will extend to our state and nation and the whole world, and While accomplishing all of these things, we must do our part to care for God's creation as good stewards.As presented above, the themes of Catholic social teaching are not at odds with one another; they are not pet projects. God may call us to emphasize one or the other more prominently in our own work or ministry. Hopefully from the way I organized it, you can also see what I mean by the importance of prioritizing the themes as well. They build upon one another, like a building.You may think that the themes should be taken all at once, like a “seamless garment,” but this approach does not take into account that a prioritized layering is necessary, nor does it do justice to the necessary principle of subsidiarity. Ultimately, the seamless garment hypothesis does not do justice to Catholic social teaching, in practice. Generally, this idea of the seamless garment is where Catholics, well intentioned as they might be, go off the rails and become SJWs or “Social Justice Warriors.” The Lord calls us to practice justice in society, but it has to be done in a prudent way, respecting the principle of subsidiarity. So, no, we are not called to be social justice warriors. We are called to focus on Jesus Christ and live our lives as His hands and fight, keeping the themes of Catholic Social Teaching in mind and in the proper prioritization.PLEASE CONSIDER SHARING THIS ARTICLE WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!This post is public so please share it by clicking the blue button below!

Crises are a part of life, and everyone experiences them at some point. After coming out of a global pandemic, everyone is a little more familiar with crises, but not everyone knows how to deal with them when they come up. In today's episode of IntHerrupt, Linda is joined by Katie Gurney to discuss how we can best prepare ourselves and loved ones for crises and manage them when they arise. The number one action step to take to prepare for a crisis? Know that one will inevitably come.  Choose your directives. Coordinate a power of attorney for both your healthcare and financial needs. If you are in an accident and cannot speak for yourself, giving someone power of attorney will allow them to advocate on your behalf.  Pay attention to your resilience. Especially if your partner is the type to get legal and financial things done for both of you, be reasonably aware of those situations, so you aren't confused and scrambling during an already traumatic time. Being empathetic to teammates going through a crisis: Recognize that people grieve differently. Follow their lead, because some people need the normalcy of their work as a space from grief. Don't ask someone how they're doing - when they want to talk about it, they will. Instead, acknowledge their loss and tell them something encouraging and meaningful. Directly ask if they wish to speak and respect the boundary they set. Instead of asking a widow or widower what they need, pick certain things you're able to do and ask if they'd like you to do them. Four tips to prepare for losing a loved one: Legally, get your directives. Put in place how you want to be handled and what to do with your property. Financial, determine what kind of life you want your survivors to have through stock options, life insurance, and monetary assets. Mentally, make sure your family knows how they support your spiritual needs. Let them know what to do to ensure you're at peace when you pass. Practically, coordinate the tasks you and your partner do so they can be appropriately handled if one of you were to die. Moving on from a family crisis: A great way to move forward is to find a support group. Find your people, especially others who can understand and know the feelings you're experiencing.  Ask a close friend to help coordinate and interact with others reaching out. It saves stress and a feeling of obligation to help others process their own emotions while you're going through a difficult time.

Matt & Scott developed the concept of Minimum Effective Dose programming (MED programming) through conversations on the podcast. Today, Matt and Scott discuss how to apply the principles of MED programming when PRs are behind you.    Listen to Scott's podcasts: Online Great Books, Music & Ideas, or Growing Resilience. This typically occurs for older clients with high-compliance (though even younger clients who have trained consistently for a long enough time run into this problem). If you're a lifter who regularly takes vacations and misses training, you'll continue to return to linear progression, so this doesn't happen.  Eventually, you can't recover from the stress it takes to hits bigger PRs. Older people tend to sleep less well and they cannot eat as many calories without adding bodyfat. Plus, the reality is simply that the body doesn't react as well to things as it ages - it's just a fact of life.  This also applies to those who find themselves suddenly facing a huge amount more stress. Scott, for example, besides being a bit older, is doing manual labor on his farmstead. This stress matters when it comes to his recovery and ability to stress himself in the gym.  Practically, what does this mean? It often means pulling slots - less frequent training and less volume. You may see 5s become 4s become 3s after awhile. More days of rest between training are needed. Eventually, weight will have to come off the bar, though. Scott has also found that he doesn't program cycles longer than 4 weeks for post-advanced clients.  A disclaimer, though - if you're an officer worker who has never done intelligent training, you need to do this, you need to chase numbers, and you need to get big and strong.    GET STARTED with one-on-one online coaching FOR FREE!

Today we continue with conference 4, or chapter 4, of I Believe in Love on Abandonment in Jesus. Webster Dictionary defines abandonment as “an unrestraint, or being uninhibited.” This is precisely how Jesus desires that we come to him; with a radical, unrestrained, and uninhibited reckless trust and love. But practically speaking what does this look like?Father Jean says “Practically speaking, it consists of seeing the will of God in all that creatures and events present to you” and as St. Francis de Sales says it is to ‘ask nothing and refuse nothing'Discussion Questions:1. “If he destroys my little plans, I kiss His adorable hand. It is because He wants to realize His own, which are more beautiful anyway than those which I could have made myself.” Have you ever thought of God‘s plan for you as “beautiful”?2. God refused the prayer of St. Monica for her son St. Augustine, in order to answer her greater prayer (see pages 101-102). Have you seen similar circumstances in your life (failures or victories)? Has this increased your trust and abandonment in God?3. “It is said that the Devil makes the gravity of the sin appear to be less during the temptation and greater after the fall.” How do you think knowing this truth can help you avoid sin?
