EPISODE 244: Justin features again on the show as fan-favourite host as he and Rey take on a very different Moon Knight tale...blink, and you'll miss it! PHASE: WAXING GIBBOUS SEGMENT: OTHER SIDE OF THE MOON MARVEL FANFARE VOL. 1 #39 - #*@%&$! Released August 1988 Writer - Michael Carlin Penciler - Bill Reinhold Inker - Jim Fern Colorist - Linda Lessmann Letterer - Joe Rosen Editor - Al Milgrom BARE BONES Written by Rey A lonely man prepares a bomb before dressing as a shiekh and catches a cab to the UN. Cab driver, Jake Lockley (aka Moon Knight) notices the nervousness of the man, as well as an aversion to bright and strobing lights. Amongst profanities in a city where you need to shoulder your way through, Jake drops the man off before heading to Gena's diner for a feed. The news on the TV blasts on in Gena's diner and Jake hears of how a man in Arabic dress has taken the UN hostage with a bomb. Recalling that it was the man he had in his cab,Jake cusses before leaving a tip for Gena and rushes out. Gena picks up the wayward and measly tip and in turn cusses back at Jake's behaviour. Jake calls Frenchie and preps him for an assault on the UN, and after changing gear, Moon Knight swoops into the building, past the guards and the crowd of reporters….much to their chagrin. Moon Knight meets the terrorist face to face, and instead of engaging in physical combat, proceeds to flick the lights on and off. Playing to what is revealed to be the man's propensity for epileptic seizures, the man soon faints and is restrained, not before Moon Knight ensures the briefcase with the bomb doesn't house any dead man triggers. Later that same day, Jake Lockely peruses the streets for a cab fare when a man dressed in Arabic garb tries to hail down his cab. Once bitten, twice shy, Lockley high tails it out of there...leaving the wannabe passenger shouting expletives in the street. MOON RATING : Justin:

Covid has changed the world - not just the pandemic - but equally the challenges and changes to our human systems - how we relate and work together. We recorded this episode back in May 2020 at the beginning of the crisis. It explores three stories where change and hope were making a difference. We looked at healthcare, mutual aid, and the Green New Deal - and saw how people were seeking (and are continuing to build) hope out of difficult times.

France is recalling its ambassadors from the US and Australia for consultations in protest after Australia abruptly ended a submarine contract in order to sign a new deal with the US and UK. The security deal is widely seen as an effort to counter China's influence in the contested South China Sea. Also the Russian election gets underway Google and Apple have removed a tactical voting app. Opposition activists have accused the tech giants of bowing to pressure from the Kremlin. We get reaction to the move from Leonid Volkov, who ran jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny's campaign in 2018. Plus the international traffic light system is being simplified in England, with double-vaccinated travellers no longer forced to take Covid's pre-departure tests from October. But will this help revive a flagrant travel industry in England? Travel writer Simon Calder tells us more. Plus the BBC's Rebecca Kesby finds out how scientists are using genetic material from wild plants to make agricultural crops more resilient to climate change. Throughout the programme Rahul Tandon is joined by Karen Percy a journalist based in Melbourne.

One man's story of 60 years living with extraterrestrials The idea that human looking extraterrestrials walking amongst us is not new to those who have immersed themselves in the rich though still mysterious history of our relationship with non-human intelligence. More people are coming forward to report their frequent interactions with these beings, yet even more, perhaps millions are reluctant to speak out about their own contact encounters. Lifelong contactee Kevin Briggs is NOT one of those individuals. Recalling his first encounter with beings whom he refers to as Ort and Dee at the age of eight, Kevin maintains that these two beings have been with him for nearly 60 years - and at their urging, his mission has been to share his experiences with the world in hopes that more people will come to understand that they - the beings have and continue to be with us, especially through these turbulent times. In this episode, Kevin details his incredible journey alongside the ETs, what they have taught him and what they insist he now must share with the world. Key areas discussed include: ✓ Blond, beautiful human looking beings (he's NOT the only one who has witnessed these entities!) ✓ Human's abilities to telepathically pick up on thought communication between non human entities. ✓ The connection with contact and OBEs (out of body experiences). ✓ Encounters with “shadow beings.” ✓ Contact with multiple non human species including The Reptilians. ✓ Consciousness as a common denominator. ✓ Recalling past lives (and deaths) as a child. ✓ Urgency to share message from the ETs with the world. #ETcontact #consciousness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFSJWx-e6B4 ► Get INSTANT access to the after show with Kevin Briggs on Patreon

Voters in 20 states have the option of tossing their governor out of office before the end of his or her term.Still, since 1921, gubernatorial recalls have made it to the ballot in only three states—North Dakota, California, and Wisconsin. However, recalling local officials and state legislators has been more common.The concept of recalling politicians commonly is thought of as part of the progressive movement of the early 20th century. But the debate over recall goes back much further, and states do it differently."Some have what's called a political recall law, like California, like Wisconsin, like Arizona, where you could do it for whatever reason you want to," Joshua Spivak, an authority on recall elections, says. "Other states have a very severe limit and those states ... rarely have recalls or have many fewer recalls, and then have almost none on the state level."Spivak, senior fellow at the Hugh L. Carey Institute for Government Reform at Wagner College in New York, joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss the history of recall elections just days before California holds another one. Spivak is the author of a new book on the topic, "Recall Elections: From Alexander Hamilton to Gavin Newsom."We also cover these stories:America is on track to default on the national debt if Congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling by mid-October, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warns.

Cross TrainingDevelop Discernment and Skillful LivingRead or WatchAre you ready for some football? After months of intense training and preparation, it's time once again for eleven players to take the field. After that first coin-toss, there's no more time for team-building activities, footwork drills, or agility exercises. When kickoff comes, as they say, "you revert to your training" and "play how you practice." But skill-development and preparation aren't just foundational in football — it's also core to our spiritual lives.We're Cross Training to develop our watchfulness, one of twelve marks of the Master we're working on this year. Watchfulness comes when we're spiritually aware, living with readiness, resisting the devil, and full of wisdom. So, how do we develop the skills to tackle life's biggest obstacles?What You Need to KnowThe Hebrew word for "wisdom" is also translated as "skill" throughout Scripture. For example, as God directed the Tabernacle's construction, he gave specific craftspeople the skill (or wisdom) to do the intricate artistic work (Ex. 36:1). He filled people with the Spirit of skill to make the priestly robes (Ex. 28:3), to design in metalwork, stone, wood, embroidery, and weaving (Ex. 35:30-35; 31:2-6), to spin the ornate fabric (Ex. 35:25-26), and to make all the hanging curtains (Ex. 36:8).And Paul seems to draw on this passage in Ephesians, when he pairs wisdom with being filled with the Spirit (Eph. 5:15-18). Only, instead of skillfully building God's house out of gold, wood, and linen, Christians — even us today — are led by the Lord to build his house with our lives (Eph. 2:20-22). We expertly mold and shape our hearts, minds, and relationships into the masterpieces God directs us to create.Another great wisdom book in Scripture is Ecclesiastes. We learn to carefully consider life's seasons and how the present moment is best spent (Eccl. 3:1-8). And the preacher teaches us to live with joy, giving our all to each task we take on (Eccl. 3:12). Wisdom comes when we sharpen our skills, taking the time to improve ourselves (Eccl. 10:10). What You Need to DoPursue wisdom as a way of life. In addition to fearing God (Prov. 9:10), Proverbs says, "the beginning of wisdom is this: get wisdom" (Prov. 4:7). We have to chase it, train for it, and care deeply about living wisely each day. Solomon became wise — not by osmosis or happenstance — but by asking God for wisdom (1 Kings 3:9-12). And we can obtain wisdom in the same way (James 1:5-6). Let wisdom take root in your heart (Prov. 14:33). Recalling the Bible's great wisdom book, we keep our "heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life" (Prov. 4:23). We're on the lookout for opportunities to improve ourselves, starting from the inside out (Matt. 12:35).Wisdom takes practice, especially in your words. "Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time." Make sure your words are always "gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person" (Col. 4:5-6). You're not trying to force people to do what you want, but you are skillfully speaking in a persuasive and influential way (2 Cor. 5:11). Open your ears, engage your brain, and choose your words carefully (James 1:19; Prov. 17:27).Through the WeekRead (Mon) — Mark 11:27-33; Luke 11:29-32; Prov. 1:20-33; 4:1-9; Eph. 5:6-21 Reflect (Tue) — What areas of my life could use some sharpening?Request (Wed) — "Oh God, give your servant an understanding mind to discern between good and evil" (cf. 1 Kings 3:9).Respond (Thu) — Read Ecclesiastes 3:1-11 and identify your current season. What is it time for now?Reach Out (Fri) — What have you learned when you've failed to make wise choices?Support the Show
How do you feel in your body when you hear the word stress? I'll give you a second to tune in. We spend so much time trying to avoid stress, but what would happen if we leaned into it? What would happen if we allowed ourselves to feel it? How we relate to stress is important to making it work for us in a positive way. Oftentimes, we view stress as a constricting, negative input that we associate with feelings of overwhelm and feelings of being unsettled. Stress can certainly create those feelings in the body, but we usually feel this way when the stressful feelings become unmanageable. Stress can also become too elevated when it turns into anxiety. Stress turns into anxiety when we start asking too many questions and trying to predict the future when there is no way to actually do that. Stress also becomes a challenge when we try to ignore the discomfort it may be causing. The problem with trying to ignore discomfort is that it will not make it go away. In fact, suppressing the feelings around stress will only make it worse. Our relationship with stress, especially in the form of mindset and attitude is actually more impactful than the stimulus that is causing the stress itself. There's a wealth of scientific research on stress and how we can use your mind and self-awareness to optimize stress. As athletes, we intentionally put our bodies under stress because we need stress to grow and improve. Our workouts create stress and our muscles breakdown, and our recovery days are what enable us to recover from that stress and get stronger. If you've had a big project at work, the stimulus or pressure of having to get something done can create stress. Sometimes that acute stress can be motivating and have you do focused work. Other times, having a big project can create too much stress and anxiety. So how do we manage and how should we think about stress? What is the Stress Response? Our body needs to react to life-threatening situations- it's the body's response to keeping us safe. From an evolutionary standpoint, it kept us alive from tigers lurking in the grass. Today's tigers are a little more insidious- start lines, our job, mortgages, potential sickness... and our minds love to take the ball and run with thoughts about future negative outcomes that haven't even happened yet. If you want to know why we tend to focus on the negative, here's my podcast and article on our negativity bias. Our body responds accordingly when we encounter a stress response. Our culture has labeled this response as a negative thing, but really? The stress response gives us energy, focus, and oxygen. Here's how it works: adrenaline increases heart rate, preparing you for action your breathing speeds up when your heart rate increases, giving you extra oxygen cortisol increases sugar levels giving you extra energy Extra energy, focus, and oxygen doesn't sound all that bad, does it? Mantra: "Stress gives me extra energy, focus, and oxygen so I can perform at my best." What Can We Learn From Leaning Into Stress? As I mentioned earlier, avoiding stress and even shrinking away from the discomfort it might initially cause is simply not effective. Avoiding stress or stuffing it can cause health issues and anxiety. The first step to making stress work for you is simply to notice and acknowledge it. The way you think about stress after acknowledging it gives you power. Treating yourself with self-compassion saying something like, "It's okay" or "This feeling is normal" or even "This is going to help me perform at my best" makes a measurable difference. There was a Harvard study conducted where researchers asked students to say "I am calm" while others were instructed to say "I am excited" before giving a speech. The group that said "I am excited" felt more confident and handled the pressure better, and gave better speeches. They noticed the energy in their body and made it work for them. Positive mantras help reframe stress into strength. We feel the energy of stress before or during an important phone call, at the start line of a race, or before giving a talk to a group. Telling yourself that this is your body trying to help you can help calm the mind. It probably won't bring your heart rate down, but it lessens the fear around the stress. Next time you feel stressed, try saying "I'm excited" or a phrase that resonates with you instead of labeling stress as a negative thing you should be avoiding. Acute stress is actually good for us because it helps us perform. Chronic stress, however, can be the culprit for the landslide of health issues associated with stress. Chronic stress results in elevated cortisol for long periods of time, moodiness, and sickness that can lead to more serious diseases. Interestingly enough, in a 2006 US Study, researchers noted that while chronic stress increased negative health outcomes, it only affected people who identified stress as being harmful. People who believed stress could be helpful or that it simply wasn't harmful weren't affected in the same way. Chronic stress is linked to our mindset around stress. Thoughts about stress tend to perpetuate into negative thought loops. A stimulus causing a stress response is actually pretty brief. It's our mind and the ruminating about our fear that causes most chronic issues with stress. Dr. Jud Brewer wrote a great book called Unwinding Anxiety that encourages us to use curiosity to identify these thought loops. Simply asking, "What am I getting from this?" can pull you out of the loop. For more, listen to the podcast I recorded with him. He says that fear + uncertainty = anxiety. The reasoning part of your brain can go offline when you are stressed or anxious. By engaging the part of your brain that involves curiosity brings a new perspective. We can waste so much energy worrying because we feel like worrying is a form of control- worrying gives us something to do. Another perspective shift is that stress is a reaction of your body saying, "Hey! You care about this thing!" Caring about something is actually a good thing! Researcher and Professor a suggests that you can reappraise your stress by asking these questions to gain insight from your stress: Why am I stressed about it? What do I care about? Is there an opportunity here?" Stress can build resilience and confidence, especially when you think big picture. Recalling a stressful situation that you overcame in the past reminds you that you can handle and even thrive through your stress. Assessing past wins in different contexts build efficacy and confidence reminding you that you can handle anything that comes your way. Ask yourself, "When did you rise to a stressful occasion?" When we get stressed, we also tend to narrow our focus and even become self-obsessed. Thinking bigger picture or thinking of how you can help others when you are stressed pays large dividends. Social connection is one of the first things to go when we are busy and stressed and yet is one of the most important allies in helping us feel connected and manage our stress. It helps us get out of our head when we spend time with others. Your mindset and attitude towards stress shape the way we view challenges. And when stress starts feeling out of hand, a person who takes a more positive mindset towards stress will come up with and execute strategies to help with stress management. Here are some other stress management tips I like to practice in addition to the strategies I've already listed: Adopt a regular breathwork practice. Breathwork is something we cover in my mindset course. One of my favorites is box breathing where you inhale for 5 seconds, hold for 5 seconds,,etc. Try meditation, especially stress specific meditations you can find in any meditation app. Focus on breathing out the stress and having your exhales be longer than your inhales Go to bed an hour earlier every night or get more sleep Therapy and talking about your stress Journaling to give perspective Exercise- we know this one! Eat healthily- processed foods don't make us feel good Avoid alcohol, especially when you're stressed Talk to a friend On an interesting cultural note: Researcher Kelly McGonical identified something called the stress paradox: happy lives contain stress, and stress-free lives don't guarantee happiness. In her research, she saw that nations that had higher levels of stress were likely to have higher GDP, longer life expectancy, and improved quality of life. When we challenge ourselves and expand the limits of our comfort zone, it can cause stress- but this can be a good, adaptive stress that brings meaning, purpose, and confidence to our lives. Trying to manage the line of helpful stress versus going overboard and getting burnt out is a challenge, but it starts with the self-awareness to identify how you're feeling and what it's doing for you. Key Takeaways on Making Stress Work For You Acknowledge and notice stress Identify that stress gives you energy and focus Use a mantra like "I'm excited" or "Stress helps me perform" to reframe "I'm nervous" or stressful self-talk Approach stress and anxiety thought loops with curiosity. "What am I getting from this?" Realize that stress means you care. Ask questions to delve into the insight that stress gives you Look for past positive experiences with stress Reach out and help others when you feel stress to get out of your own head Periods of intensity need to be followed by periods of rest to adapt to stress (physical or mental)

Paul Dupuis is the CEO and Chairman of Randstad Japan, a global human resources consulting firm. Originally from Windsor, Ontario in Canada, Mr. Dupuis always had a passion for Asia, starting from his love of martial arts. Mr. Dupuis arrived in Japan in 1990 with just $300 and slept on a bench on his first night. He then began teaching English in Osaka in a language school, and then moved on to teaching in a public high school. After moving back to Canada and contemplating a career in teaching and hotel management, Mr. Dupuis returned to Japan as the Assistant Director of International Education Programs at Osaka Kunei Jogakuin, an all-girls school in Osaka. There, Mr. Dupuis ran international study abroad programs in Canada and New Zealand where he got to see how education can be combined with business and developed an interest in the corporate sector. Mr. Dupuis then started his own company, OIC K.K. focusing on bridging Canadian and Japanese businesses. Mr. Dupuis then landed an opportunity to set up a recruiting company with a partner and opened up Wall Street Associates (currently part of en world) in Osaka. From there, Mr. Dupuis' career in the recruiting business began. After growing Wall Street Associates, the company was acquired by en Japan and Mr. Dupuis led the rebranding of the company to en world beginning in Singapore. In 2013, Mr. Dupuis moved back from Singapore to Tokyo to head Randstad's Tokyo office as the Managing Director, then to India, and returned to Japan this year in 2021 as the Chairman and CEO of Randstad Japan. In addition to his extensive global career, Mr. Dupuis is also the author of three books on leadership – The E5 Movement, The Rule of 5, and Empty Your Cup. All books are available on his website: https://pauldupuis.net/my-books Recalling his early leadership experiences of starting a company and opening up an office in Osaka, Mr. Dupuis learned the importance of becoming a role model and having to “walk the talk” as a leader – being honest, supportive, motivating and consistent. He believes that people trust leaders when they are listened to, supported through the good and bad times and are given opportunities to continue developing. Mr. Dupuis also learned the value of having a diverse team and connecting with people who are different from himself and letting their qualities shine. Although at first Mr. Dupuis struggled to connect with people who were different from him, he has learned overtime to communicate in various ways to build trust. Currently at Randstad Japan, Mr. Dupuis holds discussions at all levels of the organization and tries to understand the different values and motivations people have by taking an “omni-channel approach.” For example, when meeting with sales employees Mr. Dupuis makes sure to tap into their competitive mindset by offering rewards when meeting a set goal. When talking to risk and compliance teams, Mr. Dupuis will keep in mind their purpose to protect and enable and asks if the team is doing everything to protect the organization, while enabling the business to grow. He adds: “when you listen more than you speak, ideas are born…it also starts with asking the right questions.” His initiative to hold one-on-one conversations with his employees, which he calls compass meetings, has given him great insight into learning more about the actual people who are doing the groundwork in the organization. Mr. Dupuis is currently planning another initiative in which people are encouraged to present their ideas to a panel and get recognition. Additionally, Mr. Dupuis puts significant emphasis on learning and development opportunities at Randstad Japan, as he believes investing in people also leads to trust and development of the company itself. On the challenge of recruiting people to foreign companies, Mr. Dupuis explains: “People don't join a brand. They join people and people stay because of people. They also leave because of people. So I realized pretty quickly that ultimately I had to be the one that was going to attract people to join.” Thus, Mr. Dupuis has made sure when talking to prospective employees to share his values and his insight in recruitment, which had been an unfamiliar concept in Japan 10 years ago. On his advice to newcomers in Japan, he recommends coming to Japan with an open mind and connecting with the people in the field using active listening skills. He also advises to talk to other expats who have gone through similar experiences and have been successful in Japan. Mr Dupuis thinks learning basic Japanese – even 10 words - is a great idea as it sends out a message to the organization that you are ”walking the talk” as a leader, trying to learn and better connect with Japanese people. He lastly advises newcomers to spend time with employees outside of the office. Mr. Dupuis points out: “There is something in the office environment. People are hesitant to speak up, but the moment you go offsite…that's where you have the best conversations.”

TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of August 23, 2021. This episode, the second in a series of episodes on water in U.S. civil rights history, explores water as symbolism in African American civil rights history. [The first episode in the series--the series overview--is Episode 566, 3-1-21.] We start with about 50 seconds of music. MUSIC – ~53 sec – Lyrics: “Well the river ends between two hills; follow the drinkin' gourd. There's another river on the other side; follow the drinkin' gourd. Follow the drinkin' gourd; follow the drinkin' gourd. For the ol' man is a'waiting for the carry you to freedom; follow the drinkin' gourd.” You've been listening to part of “Follow the Drinking Gourd,” recorded by Eric Bibb in 2013. The song is believed to have been used prior to the Civil War as a code to help enslaved people escape on the Underground Railroad. In that interpretation, the verses gave information about the route, and the drinking gourd referred to the Big Dipper, setting the direction to go by pointing towards the North Star. Another water-related spiritual song, “Wade in the Water,” is also believed to have been used as Underground Railroad code. Both songs became popular hymns within African American churches and, by the mid-1900s, were closely associated with the modern Civil Rights Movement. In a 2018 post entitled “The Role of Water in African American History,” Tyler Parry stated that, “water's culturally symbolic importance resonated across generations….” Following are four other examples of water symbolism connected to the African American movement for civil rights. Number 1: “Parting the waters.” This phrase refers to the account in the Bible Book of Exodus, in which God parted the waters of the Red Sea so that the Israelites could escape from Egyptian slavery. It's been used as a metaphor for the enormous challenges that African Americans have faced in acquiring and asserting their civil rights. For instance, it's the title of the first volume in Taylor Branch's trilogy on the modern civil rights era, America in the King Years. That trilogy is the source for the next two examples. Number 2. “Until justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” Martin Luther King, Jr., frequently used this phrase, taken from the Bible Book of Amos, to describe how long the U.S. civil rights movement would need to continue. Number 3: “Springs of racial poison.” At the signing of the federal Civil Rights Act in July 1964, President Lyndon Johnson said, “We must not fail. Let us close the springs of racial poison.” And number 4. “A fire no water could put out.” Dr. King used this phrase in his final public sermon in Memphis. Recalling demonstrations in Birmingham, Alabama, when Birmingham Commissioner of Public Safety “Bull” Connor ordered fire hoses turned on demonstrators, Dr. King said that Connor didn't realize “that there was a certain kind of fire that no water could put out.” These examples are only a small piece of a much larger story. I invite listeners to offer Virginia Water Radio other examples of water metaphors and symbolism in U.S. civil rights history. Thanks to Eric Bibb, his manager Heather Taylor, and Riddle Films for permission to use this week's music, and we close with about 25 more seconds of Mr. Bibb performing “Follow the Drinking Gourd.” MUSIC – ~ 24 sec – Lyrics: “For the ol' man is a'waitin' for to carry you to freedom; follow the drinkin' gourd.” SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.

Scott Sonnenschein, Ph.D. is the Henry Gardner Simmons Professor of Management at Rice University, and a New York Times best-selling author whose books are translated into over 20 languages. Last year, he co-authored Joy at Work: Managing Your Professional Life with Marie Kondo. In this week's podcast, we discuss his book, Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined. Scott never intended to be an academic, a professor, nor a writer. He studied economics and philosophy in college. In his senior year, Scott followed his siblings' example by applying and getting accepted to law school. Before he made his final decision Scott met with his University of Virginia mentor who asked him, “What appeals to you about going to law school?” Recalling that decisive moment, Scott shared, “I don't think we take enough time to reflect on our choices. We get into what we believe are socially prescribed pathways for what an acceptable career looks like. I was going down that lane. If it were not for his prodding, I would have gone to law school. I may have enjoyed it, but I doubt it. I'm glad he challenged me.” Scott went to England for a year-long graduate program which fueled his interests in research, organizational psychology, and the quality of people's day-to-day work experiences. He returned to his mentor, expressing his interest in further graduate school and he said, “No, first get a regular job and see how you like it.” Scott became a strategy consultant in Washington, DC. One year later, he received a call from a recruiter at a Silicon Valley startup. They offered him double his salary, a fancy title, a chance to manage people, and oversight of a seven-figure budget. Scott made the trip out there to check it out and three weeks later, he moved to Silicon Valley. In his book, Stretch, Scott calls actions such as this, a chaser, in which individuals or organizations see that more is always the answer to things; i.e. the more people we hire, the faster we grow, or the bigger we get, the better we're going to be. Scott learned that was not the case when the dot com bubble dried up. While he managed to survive four rounds of downsizing, Scott knew he needed a more solid plan. He was ready to go to graduate school. In this week's Work From The Inside Out podcast, learn more about Scott's journey: Scott holds a Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the University of Michigan, a master's in philosophy from the University of Cambridge, and a BA from the University of Virginia. His research, teaching, and speaking have helped fortune 500 executives, entrepreneurs, and professionals in technology, energy, healthcare, retail, education, banking, manufacturing, and nonprofits.

My pastor likes to say that the Bible wasn't written to us, it was written for us. The author of Hebrews writes to remind persecuted believers to think back on the days when they first learned about Christ and how they remained faithful—even though their profession of faith led to terrible suffering. These believers had lost many things because of their faith in Jesus, but they knew they had something better that no one could take away from them. The verses I'll read today weren't written to us, they were written to a suffering and persecuted church. But I believe the author of Hebrews has a message for us when circumstances rattle our faith and make us question God. A few years ago, I wrote a blog post about Hebrews 10:36 and 38. In a nutshell, I blogged about a season when I was really struggling to keep the faith. I had opened my Bible memory verse app to look for “Faith Building” verses, and as I scrolled through the list, I thought I saw Hebrews 10:36. I had already memorized that verse, and I knew it said, “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” Recalling that verse made me mad, and I told God, “I HAVE persevered. I HAVE done your will. So, where's my promise? I haven't received it. I can't believe this is supposed to build my faith.” Then I looked again and realized the listed verse was Hebrews 10:38 (not 36). I didn't know that verse by heart, and so I looked it up. It began with the word “but.” When a verse interrupts your negative thoughts with “but…” you know God's Word is alive. Tears stung my eyes as I read, “But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.” I'd never willfully do something God would take no pleasure in. No matter how my faith is tested, I can't stop trusting God. I won't stop trusting God. I do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed. I choose to persevere no matter what.

A very candid discussion about the phenomenon of past lives and the journeys our souls undertake over numerous iterations, all the for the sake of learning and growing, and then helping others to do the same. What are past lives? How is this even possible? Is there evidence of this? How do you learn about your own past life experiences? How do you use those experiences and information for your current life, and is that even important to do so? Recalling past life experiences can be exciting, interesting, overwhelming, and everything in between. Meo and Shannon discuss some of their own personal experiences with recall and how it has helped them in their current journeys, and how this is just another piece of the bigger puzzle of who we are as souls and what we're trying to accomplish on our greatest journey of soul growth across many lifetimes. Some amazing resources for learning more about past life phenomenon and experiences include: Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian Weiss, Journey of Souls by Michael Newton, Five Lives Remembered by Delores Cannon (really most books by her encompasses past life experiences), and many more! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/soulsandstardust/support
The double-doctorate holding Bobby Conway comes from very humble beginnings as a non-academic teenager in California who was decent at baseball. One day, a teammate took him to hear a bible study where he heard a message from Greg Laurie. After giving his life to Christ, Bobby developed such a fervent passion to share the gospel that he couldn't imagine doing anything else than preaching the Gospel.He went to Conway, Arkansas, and attended bible college. Never considering himself an academic (Bobby mentions failing the ASVAB), he has gone on to earn a Masters and two Doctorates. Bobby gave his first sermon as a part of his undergraduate studies and studied so hard he memorized it by accident. The first time preaching in the “wild” was outdoor on a park bench with no one listening. Bobby is driven by such an intense passion to spread the Gospel that his first love is for evangelistic ministry. His next preaching gig was at an old folks home. There he was able to share worship hymns and preach the Gospel to the residents. Recalling those early days, if he could do nothing else, Bobby would be right back at the old folks home. Bobby's passion for evangelism drove his love for apologetics. Preaching to skeptics or the unsaved required that he be able to answer tough questions. For this reason, he believes it's essential to include the tough passages in your sermons. He also cautions not to get too lost in the weeds. As a tour guide for your congregation, it's essential to keep their attention. It's a tricky balance but one that he constantly works to improve upon.This is a great conversation that covers so many topics and it's a real pleasure to hear Bobby speak with such passion for the lost. Bobby is also an author, speaker and regular contributor on many podcasts and radio shows.Bobby is co-host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Pastor's Perspective, and the radio show Unapologetic. He's the founder and host of One Minute Apologist—a YouTube ministry that provides credible answers to curious questions and the founding lead pastor of Image Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. He earned his Master of Theology (ThM) from Dallas Theological Seminary, his Doctor of Ministry (DMin) in apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary, and his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) from the University of Birmingham in England.

Kam and Kary go through a range of topics this week, from Kam's daughters first summer camp, the loss of her dog Chunk and the vet visit that left her livid, and Kary recounting her Cabo trip and the shenanigans that happened.
As Cal takes time to reflect after his father's passing, he goes into his archives to listen to conversations he had with people who've done the extraordinary over the years. This talk with the British musician and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame goes back to 2009 and makes Cal smile, and ponder subjects like stress, parenting, death, tantric sex and hitting the High C in life. Cal hopes you enjoy this conversation as much as he did.
Here's a snapshot of a few things we talked about… Who is the Clark Kent, When It Comes to AJ Osborne? [00:02:03] How Did He Become Paralyzed? [00:06:14] Two Ways That You Have Value [00:12:53] How He Has been Able to Start Multiple Companies? [00:31:45] Would He Recommend Self-Storage Space to People Starting Out? [00:43:23] Levers That You Could Change in Self-Storage. [00:47:15] How to Get Financing for Self-Storage Facilities? [00:57:05] App For Self-Storage Industry News and Analysis [01:05:44] One Thing He Wishes He Had Implemented Sooner to Accelerate His Journey? [01:07:01] In This Episode You'll Learn: In this episode, Casanova and AJ talk about everything related to self-storage, one of the most profitable niches in the real estate market. Behind the scenes, AJ is a family man, who like spending time with his four kids. He is a very result driven, goal-oriented person, who likes processes that can make change and wants to see things happen. What makes his story unique and interesting is the fact that he became fully paralyzed, quadriplegic due to a rare condition called Guillain-Barré. Within a short span of time, AJ became completely paralyzed. His journey to recovery took him over four years, and he still hasn't fully recovered. AJ says that him wanting to be the dad that he wanted to be with his kids kept him going and doing things. He started up three different companies out of his wheelchair. Since then, his wealth has exploded. Now they have product businesses, and service businesses. AJ develops, converts, bankrupt office buildings, retail centers, turning those into self-storage facilities. Recalling the time when he was working with his dad, he just made money off whatever they sold to our clients. This was an invaluable experience as it was ingrained in his mind that revenue comes from action. He says that this is something many entrepreneurs and businesspeople understand. Talking about how living on 30% of their income, AJ says that this taught them the importance of saving. He also learned the important life lesson that they have to have income that is not tied to his time. AJ talks about another light bulb moment that he had, that if he can't stop, he can't compound. And if he can't compound, his growth is limited and that he could not handle, as he can't compound his wealth, because his time is limited. Then, AJ and his father started acquiring self-storage units, and he started loving them. They turned out to be a great investment as they aren't real estate assets, they are a business. He could buy bad performing units and turn them around, and this appealed more to him as he was a salesguy. Talking about the two ways to get values, AJ said that there's given value and there is earned value. When he first started looking, he was obsessed with given value. For him, the Margin of Safety is important when investing, buying businesses, and everything. AJ adds that you have two types of knowledge, you have static and dynamic. Static knowledge is something you read out of a book, dynamic knowledge is when you do, it's learning. As he gained dynamic knowledge, he looked for the next one; created value. Once he started doing this, his returns exploded. AJ says that as a business owner and investor, you have to get comfortable with operating on the revenues of a business, not off a paycheck, and those fluctuate. He says that it is fine if you know how to control money and capital. AJ recalls the painstaking process of tirelessly working while he was recovering from his condition, after losing his job, but that ended up saving me and my family's life. He adds that you want to get yourself off that earned income, but you also want to make sure that you're protected against downsides. Talking about his real estate acquisitions during the recession, people thought it was not a great idea. He says that the way that money and fundamentals work is simple, and the process is always true. AJ adds that because he made sure he had a margin of stupidity, he was able to learn and make it big. AJ faced a lot of difficulties in school, as he is dyslexic. When he took and scored super high on like equivalencies and IQ tests, he realized that it was the system that was failing him. It is important getting comfortable and knowing that it's okay to not know to be wrong and to have faith, but that it doesn't mean that's who you are. He adds that markets care about one thing, and one thing only they care about price, they care about value, they care about service. And as long as you can deliver that to them, you'll be successful. AJ says that first and foremost, when you're truly starting out, you need mentors because what you need to learn to do, you can't do at school, and dynamic learning is a way of learning how to learn. Talking about the two types of people you can find in every organization; AJ says that there are implementers and then there are visionaries. He talks about how surrounding himself with implementers helped his companies achieve great success. AJ says that when you start out, you usually don't have a lot of money, so, partnering is the best option. You need to partner with somebody that is good at the things that you aren't. Then, put the right people in the right positions by identifying them and create processes so you can measure their success. Talking about people starting out, AJ says that if you want to end up in self-storage space, just start there. He says that it gets a lot harder to find commercial assets and other industries like retail, that you could start small, learn, grow and compound. AJ adds that the revenue management side of self-storage is very dynamic, and you can market it very efficiently by identifying the high-paying customer. Key Quotes: “You don't need to be a superhero to have massive results and massive change…” “Revenue comes from action…” “If you look, so many entrepreneurs and businesspeople, so many of them are salespeople…” “I am playing the greatest game on earth with the coolest people, and I get to do it every day, what a blessing…” “It also, taught me the most important skill ever. I have to have income that is not tied to my time…” “I do mergers and acquisitions. I buy brokerage firms and we take in our technology and skill, turn them around…” “If an asset, for some reason, isn't performing at a market level and that's usually dependent on operators…” “Dynamic knowledge is much more valuable because dynamic knowledge has to do with forced value…” “I understood that how money really works instead of disillusion of the paycheck…” “The people in the economy that are the biggest and the best are the ones that survive…” “As long as I knew I needed a margin of stupidity, I could be stupid and do it. And you can do that in every industry, in every asset class…” “Start small, start with margin of stupidity and be okay with your own stupidity. Get going, start building those small things…” “That is how entrepreneurs work. You're building something in the future that doesn't exist…” “If you're starting out, go find mentors…” “I'm big on self-auditing. I shouldn't be doing this. I'm not very good at this. We need to get somebody that is great on this and implement…” “The revenue management side of self-storage is very dynamic. We look at ourselves like hotels or airlines, they're always changing…” Links/Resources: Rocket Fuel by Gino Wickman and Mark C. Winters Good to Great by James C.

Recalling his time in the radio business, guest Lew Dickey tells host James Di Virgilio that, as a CEO, it is important to recognize that you are often forced to take things as you go: “The landscape is changing—you might be able to see a little bit around the corner, but nobody has perfect vision into the future.” Currently, Dickey is the Co-Founder and Chairman of DM Luxury, America's largest regional magazine company. However, this piece of advice rings especially true considering his background as the former CEO of Cumulus Media, the nation's second largest radio company.In this episode, Dickey remembers the quick and drastic shift into the digital realm, a time when somebody like Steve Jobs showed up to Stanford University with his latest Apple products and showed them to eager students, including Dickey, who took inspiration from those moments—as well his own father's history in broadcasting—to create his own company.

The future of mental health and women's health with two healthcare CEOs Innovation in healthcare is one of the biggest stories of the last few years, and in this episode, host Sam Saperstein, talks with two CEOs who've been at the forefront of that acceleration. Kate Ryder is the founder and CEO of Maven Clinic, the largest telemedicine health provider for family health and women's health. And April Koh is founder and CEO of Spring Health, a digital wellness platform aimed at making mental wellbeing easy to navigate for businesses and employees. In this conversation, Kate and April discuss how they each drew from personal experience as they built their companies, how COVID-19 impacted telemedicine, and how sometimes knowing when to pivot is the key to continued success. Leveraging personal experience into start-up success Both Kate and April drew on their own experiences as healthcare consumers when they started their companies. For Kate, it was her interactions with the complex maternal healthcare systems that led her to believe there must be a simpler way for women to access the range of care they deserve. She recalls thinking in 2014, when she started Maven Clinics, that “there was a lot around the telemedicine space that was really exciting, but nothing was really geared toward women and families.” She also knew that it could be hard for women to access the range of specialty providers they needed as they navigated fertility, pregnancy, childbirth, and beyond. So, she founded Maven with the goal of providing women with a multidisciplinary care team to help them fill in the gaps that often exist in women's healthcare. Digital health or telemedicine is a key component of that, though Maven also offers in-person options for those who prefer that experience. For April, it was her decade-long struggle with mental health that inspired her to start Spring Health. “I went through a really lonely and a really long process of trial and error to figure out something that would work for me,” she recalls. “And I found kind of randomly what worked for me, but I know so many people are struggling in that way today.” While so many other aspects of life were becoming data-driven and personalized, she felt that mental healthcare “felt like a total guessing game, it felt like it was stuck in the dark ages.” When she learned of groundbreaking research showing that machine learning could be used to personalize mental healthcare, she reached out to the researcher, Dr. Adam Chekroud. Together they launched Spring Health with the mission of making mental healthcare more accessible and personalized for everyone. Navigating change and knowing when to pivot As healthcare CEOs at a time when telemedicine was just taking off, both Kate and April learned to adapt and move fast. Recalling a time when she had found a great mental health care provider a few blocks from home, but could not make herself leave her bed to get to an in-person appointment, April says, she always knew that “the future of mental health care is virtual.” The pandemic accelerated trends toward telemedicine that had already started. Spring Health was off to a fast start, leveraging AI to provide personalized care, and benefiting from the overall trends toward telemedicine. But they faced a hiccup when their original model of selling into provider systems was being hampered by those system's entrenched workflow issues. April's response was to pivot quickly to owning their own provider network and eliminating the workflow bottlenecks. “It's helped us move forward in our vision to deliver care,” she says. “And it's one of the things I'm most proud over the past five years. I recommended a hard pivot.” At Maven, Kate recalls a different type of pivot: shutting down a failing product. The product was birth-control subscriptions for college students, which Kate says they launched after hearing from enough parents that they would buy such a subscription for their college students. “And we realized later on, they were just being polite,” she says. “Actually, they didn't want to think about their daughters having sex in college.” Eight months after launching the product, Maven shut it down. Luckily, they were already achieving success on other fronts and the quick pivot to shutting down the failed product spared them from big losses.
