Frances Valintine - Founder & CEO of the MindLab and the Tech Futures Lab - Impact of Emerging Technologies and Embracing Change. This is episode 478 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast. Frances Valintine Founder and CEO of The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab A well regarded and recognised technologist and educator, Frances has been focused on the future of work and the development of human capability for the duration of her career. She has a life mission to uncover the potential in anyone she meets - if you have a conversation with Frances you'll come away buzzing with inspiration, confidence and optimism for what lies ahead. Every day, no matter whether it's a keynote speech to corporate, government, education or social impact audiences; designing new future focused learning programmes; advising the boards and not-for-profit organizations she's involved with; or supporting staff around Aotearoa New Zealand, Frances is always thinking about how to create impact. Not for herself but to enable others to find it in themselves. Her door is always open and there's nothing more that she loves than to have a good natter about life, kids, culture and whatever else comes up. In recent years, Frances has built up The Mind Lab (started in 2013) and Tech Futures Lab (2016) to provide learning pathways for educators and professionals to not just participate in but have sustainable impact for the technologically driven future. Everything she does is about supporting people, businesses and organizations to understand the impact of emerging technologies and the cultural adaptation required to embrace change and build that impact. Frances sets the tone for the two organizations - one of lifelong learning, openness, awareness and inclusion. She has a passionate belief that a flexible mind that fosters an ability to learn, unlearn and relearn is crucial as new information, improved data and more advanced science and technology shapes our understanding of the world around us. Aside from her business acumen, she is also a naturally talented creative. The HQ for The Mind Lab and Tech Futures Lab is a great example of what is going on in Frances' mind in between the more serious conversations and tasks. Frances earned a Master of Education Management at the University of Melbourne and completed the Executive Program at Singularity University. Frances has been recognized as the New Zealand Companion of the Order of Merit for services in Education & Technology CNZM. She is a New Zealand Member of the High Tech Hall of Fame & 14th Recipient of the New Zealand Flying Kiwi Award, Recipient of the Peter Blake Leadership Award, Recipient of the CIO Award for Outstanding Contribution to Technology & Business, Winner of the Women of Influence Award for Innovation, and Winner of Woman of the Year for Education.

This inspiring and uplifting episode features Reggie Leonard, a wine student and Virginia wine enthusiast based in Charlottesville, Virginia. He currently leads career development at the University of Virginia's School of Data Science, but when he's not coaching students or hosting events, Reggie is a regular on the Charlottesville arts, dining, tech, and wine scene. His discerning palate and accessible commentary have already opened doors to countless conversations-turned-collaborations. Reggie is a recipient of the inaugural cohort of Wine Unify, an educational program providing award opportunities for minority groups interested in or working in wine, through which he pursued a WSET Level 1 certification and earned his WSET Level 2 with Distinction shortly after. We talk about his wide array of experiences in the Virginia wine industry that have been pivotal moments in his wine education journey, and we discuss how he is working to combine his knowledge and passion toward a parallel career in the wine industry. We discuss the art of "paying attention" while developing your palate, and we highlight a few of the items on his "wine bucket list". Keep an ear out for a list of some fantastic Virginia wine recommendations at the end of the episode, and you can connect with him at @reggieleonard on Instagram to learn more about his goals for the industry.

The Philippines will see the son of a former dictator - Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Junior - become President, some 36 years since his parents were forced to leave the country in disgrace. The result leaves many questions - including how large a part did misinformation campaigns play in this result? Will the Philippines move closer to China and away from the US?

What is the status of a coin or bill that one gives to charity but is then refused? Occasionally, a person collecting charity might refuse a donation of money, such as if he feels insulted over the small amount. Does that money retain its status as charity money, requiring the individual to give it to a different charity, or may he now keep that money?The Taz ("Turei Zahav," a commentary to the Shulchan Aruch by Rabbi David Halevi, Poland, 1586-1667) addresses this question and claims that once the donation is refused, it retroactively loses its Halachic status as Tzedaka money. It is therefore permissible to make personal use of that money, and it need not be given to charity.A slightly different case involves a person who sees somebody collecting charity in the synagogue and pulls out a bill or coin with the intention of giving the money to the collector, who then leaves the synagogue without ever receiving the money. Must the individual give that coin or bill to charity? The Halachic authorities rule that in this case, since the donation was not rejected, but simply did not reach the hands of the intended recipient, it retains its formal status as charity money. If the person collected for himself or for another individual, then the donor should give the money to an individual; if the collector was soliciting on behalf of an institution, then the money should be given to an institution.One can easily avoid this problem by stipulating – either verbally or mentally – that anytime he pulls out money to give to a collector, the money does not attain the status of Tzedaka money until it reaches the recipient's hands. A person can make this stipulation just once in his lifetime, and it remains in effect from that point onward such that any money he takes out of his pocket to give to charity is not endowed with the status of Tzedaka money until it reaches the recipient. If it then happens that a collector leaves before receiving the money, the donor can keep the money for personal use.Summary: If a person gives charity and the recipient refuses it, the returned money may be used for personal use and need not be given to another charitable cause. If a person takes money from his wallet with the intention to give it to a collector but the collector leaves before receiving the money, the money must be given to charity. One can avoid this problem by stipulating – even just once in his lifetime – that any money he pulls out to give to charity does not attain the formal status of charity money until it reaches the recipient.

Today I'm joined by Dr. Audrey Holland, the 2022 recipient of the Robin Tavistock Award. Although I feel as though no introduction is necessary, nor would that completely reflect the lifetime of work by Audrey, it is my distinguished privilege to introduce today's podcast guest. For over 60 years and she started when she was roughly 5, Audrey has been a leader in moving aphasia care towards holistic participation-based interventions that ultimately improve the quality of life for people with aphasia and their families. From her work on functional communication to aphasia bank to co-founding Aphasia Access, she has made remarkable impacts on so many of us. Her work on coaching and counseling has influenced the speaker. Her work on coaching and counseling has influenced the field of speech language pathology even more broadly without further ado, it is my distinct privilege to introduce Dr. Audrey Holland. Jerry Hoepner: Well, again so good to see you today Audrey. It's always nice to connect with you and have a conversation. Audrey Holland: Yeah, I just wish there were more opportunities, and I think this has been a very sparsely here for the kind of things that really make a difference for a lot of us, which is that last meeting seems so long ago and the last one for me was the one I had in Baltimore and whoa. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah it seems like- Audrey Holland: Centuries. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah it seems like a long time since we've all gotten to be face to face, since all of this pandemic stuff has gone around yeah that's for sure. Really looking forward to getting back to seeing people, and you know, giving hugs and all of those things again yeah for sure yeah definitely. Audrey Holland: I mean that's as much the meeting as the meeting. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah absolutely. I agree, there's, you know, there's good things about connecting virtually but it doesn't quite feel the same as when you're in this. Yeah for sure. So hopefully by the time the next of Aphasia Access Summit comes around we'll be able to meet in person and I know we have a lot of new friends and old friends that we'll be able to reconnect with at that time, too, oh. Audrey Holland: Yeah that's going to be pretty fast. I think that's going to be faster than right now. I can visualize. Jerry Hoepner: I hope so yeah, I hope that's the case that we can, yeah like you said, get back into rubbing shoulders with each other again. Yeah it was like we're getting can see the end of the tunnel. I hope- I should knock on wood when I say that. But it seems like getting there. Yeah well Audrey it's my pleasure to have a conversation with you today about your recent award the Robin Tavistock Award. Would you be willing to talk a little bit about what that means to you? Audrey Holland: Oh yes, I'm very, very, very, very honored by that. I believe I'm not sure of them, I meant to open up this morning and I didn't. I believe it's been in existence for more than 15 years, but this is only the second time that it's gone to an American. I think those things are correct. Jerry Hoepner: I believe you're right, I think in 2018, Simmons Mackey was the first American and then we've had another North American in 2020 and it was Aura Kagan. And, of course, a really long list of respected names in the in the field of aphasiology. Linda Worrall, Chris Cote, and Marion Brady and so many more that that come to mind that have just been such a great influence on the field in. Audrey Holland: Are there Australians? Jerry Hoepner: I believe, Linda Worrall. I'm not sure if there were besides Linda. Audrey Holland: I think. But even so that's really wonderful that its international. Jerry Hoepner: Agreed. Audrey Holland: Don't mind that it's English speaking I think that's kind of appropriate but that. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah, it's a pretty remarkable group of people that have been awarded this so we're really happy to see that honor being bestowed on you and certainly more than well-deserved given your work. With that in mind, maybe we can take just a little bit of a conversational journey through your kind of list of achievements, or some of your most kind of enjoyed achievements from the past and maybe talk just a little bit about some of the work that you've done in the past and how you see that as contributing to the to the field of aphasiology today. Audrey Holland: Well order, the thing that I sort of I'm not embarrassed about this in the slides, but it really does work kind of funny looking back on it and that's the fact that so much of my early work was so rigid and so in the box and I didn't realize it really except as I stopped doing so much of it and started doing work that was much more satisfying to me and creative to me, and hopefully other people as well. But it's been kind of checkered career, when I look back on because you know I started out in child language. Jerry Hoepner: I didn't know that. Audrey Holland: Oh yes, oh yes. Not only that I started out in behavioral sciences really the rigorous behavioral sciences. I was married to a man who co-authored the analysis and behavior with B.F. Skinner and so that influence on my life was big and I remember distinctly waking up one morning and Jim and I were living in Boston you know and we were living in Boston and he was working and it was sort of like, “Okay, I have to- I got to tell her who he really married here. Jim there is something I have to tell you.” “Okay.” I said, “I got a behaviorist.” And he said, “yeah.” And I thought I my marriage was saved. Jerry Hoepner: He already knew. Audrey Holland: He just went back to sleep. Jerry Hoepner: So, what moved you from, as you said, being kind of in that box, the more rigid behavioral approach to something that was more functional? Audrey Holland: I can't resist the Skinner box thing like. Jerry Hoepner: Exactly- the Skinner box. Audrey Holland: I was raised in the Skinner box. Not all the time, but. What moved me from that? I didn't see people being satisfied by reaching- I can't think of how the design definitely that would help people realize how their life can be better. Jerry Hoepner: Right. Audrey Holland: That just drove me insane and I thought you know there's two things you can do: You can either stop doing what you're doing then say, “I'm through, I quit, I'll do something else, I'll sell hot dogs on the corner,” whatever but what made sort of more sense to me was how can I move from what I am doing into the kinds of things that I think are worthwhile doing and that's actually when I started writing grants that had to do with getting along in life which quickly took limelight off behavioral analysis. All the things that didn't help people talk any better we're- not in talking in better just in general but getting along anywhere that's it speaking world, speaking linguistic world but just speaking. Jerry Hoepner: So that really launched you it sounds like into the work that you did in the late 70s and 80s on functional communication and yeah I would say that work has been so influential on many of us, and really started to move the field in a direction away from the traditional drill and practice and to something more meaningful for supporting individuals with aphasia so fascinating to think about how that transition began. How did that relate to your working with individuals with aphasia and the way that they responded to this new way of doing things? Audrey Holland: Well my sense was I wasn't doing anybody very much good. I mean you didn't do a whole lot of practice sentence structure really didn't seem to go anywhere and people always seem to be thrilled when I got through with that part of my therapy and started talking. Finally, got through to me that I felt better and that really, really made the difference and that was still in Boston, a very long time ago. Jerry Hoepner: I know we've talked about this before a little bit, and I know, there was a whole room full of people that initially had conversations about the start of Aphasia Access or what would become Aphasia access but would you be willing to kind of give us a peek into that in those initial conversations and how that all got started and became what it is today? Audrey Holland: Well, and I think that was the Boston meeting essentially that really got kicked off at the Boston meeting where everybody there, if not totally, at least partially had a mindset that fit with, “Okay, let's move this cart a little forward,” and it sort of shows, actually you were there, weren't you? Jerry Hoepner: Yeah. Audrey Holland: Yeah it did it didn't start at the beginning, but it sort of was a ground swell. So that by the last date is like kumbaya we're all sort of thinking, “Oh wow look at all this room full of people feel as I do.” Jerry Hoepner: Was really remarkable to have all of those people together to with the same mindset and with a lot of shared values, to have those conversations and just to continue the work that was really burgeoning at that point in our field on life participation and. Audrey Holland: It was it was like so kumbaya meeting is just such a warm, warm thing that nobody was like, “Well, I better get out of here. This is not my cup of tea,” you know nobody's robbing people thought that. Jerry Hoepner: I don't know, I think it was a pretty close-knit group of people so. Audrey Holland: But how did that happen? Jerry Hoepner: That's a good question. I think some good people brought the right minds together in the right place at the right time. Audrey Holland: I knew who to see just to come. Jerry Hoepner: Pretty remarkable what it's grown into since that time and the connections around the world and yeah absolutely. Well I'm going to shift gears a little bit, because I know, one of the things that people value so much about you and you hear this at ASHA and you hear it at Aphasia Access conferences and other conferences as well I'm sure, but that you've been a mentor either formally or informally to so many and people really value the advice you give and the human connection that you make with everyone. So maybe you can give us a little bit of insights into your you know your thoughts on mentoring and your thoughts on kind of helping to move the next generation forward. Audrey Holland: Well, the first words that come into my mind with that question are hey we're all in this together, and I sort of see the group as people who share this sort of like, “Oh my gosh, I'm home. I found a comfortable place to be,” and I think people come by that, some earlier, some later. Some of my best friends never have gotten to that point. And they at least have the kindness to me not to tell me I'm wrong, and I don't tell them they're wrong. But it's pretty clear that more people are into this headset then I think we have any idea. I don't know if that's a decent answer. I'm not I'm no longer uncomfortable, so I really believe in helping each other is more important than if they say correctly right. Jerry Hoepner: And it's remarkable that you're you know you're so approachable and so willing to approach anyone and get on their level. Your statement, you know “We're all in this together” is a really good reflection of that that you're willing to have a conversation with anyone and I feel like, as you said, it's that way at Aphasia Access meetings in general, no one is you know kind of out of reach, so to speak for a conversation. Audrey Holland: I'm going to share one of my favorite stories with you Jerry. At Arizona, and I basically ran the spouse groups so that I add some and we were walking out of the spouse group one day, and there was a woman walking behind in front of me, actually, and she had with her someone that she brought to the group, and this is a spouse, and she said to the spouse she said, “What did you think?” And the woman said. She was really interesting. She was just like the rest of us.” And the other woman who I didn't said, “I told you she was as common as dirt.” I was right, I was walking right behind him I cracked up, I mean I just loved it. That's probably my favorite color compliment I've ever gotten. Audrey Holland: Common as dirt. Jerry Hoepner: Common as dirt. That's high praise when it comes, you know, meaning that you're able to connect in and didn't seem standoffish or out of reach. That's fantastic, totally fits your ability to connect with a whole range of people so that's a fantastic story I love it. Audrey Holland: It was, “Yes!” for me but I couldn't exactly you know do that in public. But it was I really felt it that's why I don't mind telling story. Jerry Hoepner: Common as dirt, or you know that could be a title for the podcast we'll see. No that's fantastic, I wonder, so you mentioned that you are doing the spouse groups and it brings me to another question that I was thinking about because, along with all of your brilliant work in the realm of aphasia, you've done some amazing work in the realm of coaching and counseling that has impacted even a broader audience in our discipline. How did you make that leap towards coaching and counseling? Audrey Holland: Remember, I went to a school that specialized in counseling and the whole picture, etc, etc, etc. So that that actually came with my master's degree, I think that was it stuttering. But the orientation to working with whole people not just their language has always been part of my- has always part of my graduate training from my master's straight on so I don't know if that answers the question but. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah absolutely definitely does so. I have one more big question and then maybe we can just wrap up our conversation, but I know that I have to ask this for all of my colleagues and future colleagues and students as well, so if you have any advice for future generations of speech language pathologists and life participation approach practitioners, what would that advice be to someone who is just moving forward or will be in the future years? Audrey Holland: Whoo. I think part of the answer to that is be gutsy. Jerry Hoepner: I like it. Audrey Holland: People are not going to accept all this, but you know if you're gutsy enough you're going to be different enough and you're gonna be viewed as somebody that might have something to say and I don't think it's a bad thing to be who you are clinically I think you have to be who you are clinically and who you are as a teacher, not just you are as a body, you know so. Jerry Hoepner: So, be gutsy, be assertive, be creative, take chances, is that what I'm hearing? Audrey Holland: Uh huh. And take your lumps. Jerry Hoepner: Lumps yeah that's a good point because not every- if you're always trying new things and pushing the boundaries I'm sure you'll find some times when things don't go exactly like you hoped, they would. Audrey Holland: No that's never happened to me. Jerry Hoepner: No, me neither you know for sure. Audrey Holland: We're just perfect. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah exactly. It's nice to be that way. Audrey Holland: When you come at somebody with a different opinion and you say, “No, the moon is not made a green cheese”, you're going to take some lumps and I think one thing good to be able to do is to shut your ears shut your ears, get away from it and continue to be yourself. Jerry Hoepner: That's terrific advice. Yeah, I appreciate that idea of trying new things pushing the boundaries. That's how we move forward, rather than trying to stay in our comfort zone and do the same things you've been doing. Audrey Holland: You're not gonna die. We aren't. You might take a few lumps, but so. Jerry Hoepner: I feel like that sort of brings us full circle, when you talked about being in the box and not feeling very comfortable in the box and then kind of rounding things out with you know stepping out of that box, you know being gutsy, having the courage to do that and to move things forward so. Audrey Holland: It isn't that you're feeling that I am much happier when I am who I am rather than when I say, “That was a dumb thing, that isn't me, I didn't mean to do that.” Yeah. Jerry Hoepner: Yeah, I think that's great advice and I can see why that would carry over to you know the individuals with aphasia and their and their family members that you work with too. It's hard for them you know to be themselves and to push the boundaries if we're not being ourselves and we're staying in the box so fantastic. Audrey Holland: It's like I just realized this morning that I have a couple of friends who are, well more than a couple of friends who have spouses and people who are aphasic, and so I talked to two or three of them this morning, just like, “Hi, how you doing, what's going on?” Just not anybody but Audrey.

The FCCS Accelerator of the Year Award is presented to a forward thinking leader who is working to make a difference in their organization by accelerating them beyond the norm and into the future. The award recipient focuses on growth and development within their organization and within the community at large. In this episode of The Forward Thinking podcast, host Jay Lux, VP of Organizational Development at FCCS is joined by Kayla Robinson, winner of the 2021 Accelerator of the Year Award. Kayla serves as COO with AgTexas Farm Credit Services and has joined the podcast for a conversation about her experiences with agriculture, her success with building teams, and how forward thinking leaders can accelerate growth and success in any organization. Episode Insights Include: Building better teams Leaders should be involved and engaged in every aspect of the company. Employees need to be in the ‘right seat on the bus' in positions that help them feel empowered and engaged. The executive team should model the desire to achieve company success over the long run. Building better teams starts with recognizing that everyone has different skill sets and contributions to offer the organization. Building relationships in your community Project involvement can enhance company and community relationships. Leaders should consider serving on advisory boards. Development of the next generation of leaders through mentor relationships is key. Intern opportunities help to share and increase knowledge of career possibilities. Enhancing the employee experience Identifying the mission of the company is an essential first step. Understanding the why behind all the company does helps to get through difficult times. Balancing flexibility and compassion with business matters is essential to an enhanced employee experience. Consider if you are asking employees to run a marathon at a sprint pace. Diversity and understanding the values of each employee increases understanding of what each team member is bringing to the table. Leading in times of chaos or uncertainty Understanding the variety of needs within your team is essential. Flexibility is key to helping your team navigate uncertain times. Consider a more forward thinking approach and adapt as appropriate. The pandemic has taught leaders to be flexible, to adapt, and to ask for grace where needed. Maintaining a focus on the why of what the team does brings a valuable perspective. Don't be afraid to look outside the box and consider a different way of doing things.

In this episode I am talking to my friend Mark Paine that I met on Clubhouse. Mark has a YouTube channel called EVE Growing. Here is a description from his YT channel. * "EVE" (ECO VERTICAL EVOLUTION) is a revolutionary method for growing food. "Non traditional growing" (aquaponics, aeroponics, hydroponic) and traditional growing coming together to help make our inner cities green and food desert free. EVE can grow healthy organic food anywhere and every where with little need to change the actual growing grounds from rooftops to paved parking. Whatever these other non traditional growing methods can do EVE can do better, cheaper with far less energy used, and less chances for failure. Instead of abandoning the art of growing in soil as these other non traditional growing methods have EVE is all about soil treating it like fine wine as it gets even better year after year. * This simplistic growing method is about composting, recycling, and reusing making it the perfect grow method for Urban Farming where most of the supplies are easily attained. * YouTube video of this conversation: https://youtu.be/RWBRec0gLis * Contact EVE at EVEgrowing@comcast.net * Marks YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgOD... * * Here is where you can find Sean Dustin: * Website: * www.nowheretogobutuppod.com (under construction) * Linktree: * https://linktr.ee/Nowheretogobutup * CLUBHOUSE: @seandustin * * You can also tip me through PayPal: * www.paypal.com * recipient: email@example.com * The Cash App: * https://cash.app/ * Recipient: $nwtgbupod * * #verticalgrowing #composting #evegrowing

In this episode 286, we visit with Halli Gomez, author of “List of Ten,” where the number that dictates the young protagonist's life is also the number on the list that will end it. Ten: three little letters, one ordinary number. No big deal, right? But for Troy Hayes, a 16-year-old suffering from Tourette Syndrome and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, the number ten dictates his life, forcing him to do everything by its exacting rhythm. Finally, fed up with the daily humiliation, loneliness, and physical pain he endures, Troy writes a list of ten things to do by the tenth anniversary of his diagnosis—culminating in suicide on the actual day. “List of Ten” is the Recipient of the 2021 NC Young People's Literature Award and Nominee for the 2022 Young Adult Library Services Association Best Fiction for Young Adults. Kirkus describes the novel as “an authentic and compassionate look at the ups and down of teenage life and living with Tourette syndrome," and Nicole Lesperance, author of The Wide Starlight and The Nightmare Thief, says: “"I'm just... wrecked. It's a stunning, difficult, powerful, heartfelt book, and it made me cry."

How can relationship building and interpersonal connection play a vital role in English learners developing a love of reading? What can educators do to encourage students to move outside of their comfort zone at school, especially when it comes to reading academic content? How can providing students with leadership opportunities enhance learning and inspire students to think in new ways? We discuss these questions and more with Shreya Rohatgi, a first-year college student at the University of Oklahoma who earned one of Ellevation's scholarships last year. Shreya is a biochemistry major with a minor in psychology. She is also intentionally taking classes that invoke her creative side, which she feels is an important part of a well-rounded education. She is also a member of the Presidents Leaders Club, where she has been lucky to be part of what she calls patchwork of people whose individual talents and experiences come together to create something powerful. We caught up with Shreya in the middle of our application period for Ellevation's 2022 scholarship. We hope our conversation with her inspires you to encourage your students to apply. We'll accept applications through May 12th and you can find all the information you need on our Community page. You can also find multimedia resources - including a transcript of this episode, accompanying blog posts, videos, collaboration opportunities, and more - on our learning community.

War In Ukraine Continues To Increase Likelihood Of Global Food Crisis According to reporting from The New York Times, the war in Ukraine continues to threaten global food, agriculture, and other vital infrastructure. Farmers in Ukraine are reporting that granaries, farms, and other agriculture-related infrastructure are being destroyed by the Russians, all but halting Ukraine's ability to export food staples. The World Food Programme chief warns that a global food crisis may turn out to be “beyond anything we've seen since World War II.” Nonprofits across the globe should prepare for higher food prices and the second-order effects of a global food crisis, a rare moment where global food markets are being impacted by supply and demand as opposed to external factors affecting access.

In an update, Google announced that starting July 1st, 2023, all Universal Google Analytics accounts will stop pulling in new data from websites. The phasing out of UA is years in the making, but the hard switch will require nonprofits to both export and download historic data as well as migrate over to the new code. Recipients of the Google Ad grant are at risk of losing access unless they migrate accordingly. Read more about the upcoming update here.

We're talking about the continued issues coming from the war in Ukraine, specifically around global food and crisis that could be coming. And some Google analytics updates that that might be annoying to you. [00:00:20] And in general, we're going to be trying to as always bring it back to why this matters for you at your social impact organization. So Nick, how's it going? [00:00:29] It's going? [00:00:29] good, George, how are you? [00:00:30] You know keeping up with the news, keeping up with the work it's, it's been busy here at whole. Well, you know, we just came back from our staff retreat, not too long ago. I, I feel like I'm caught up, but it's tough when you take a little, a little break from the normal. [00:00:46] It is tough agency. Life keeps us busy, but we're back at it again today with the nonprofit newsfeed. And as you alluded to our first story continues to be about the second and third order effects of the war in Ukraine in particular, the increasing likelihood of a global food crisis. So again, from record reporting from the New York times, the word Ukraine continues. [00:01:11] Threatened global food, agriculture and other vital infrastructure farmers are having their greeneries and farm equipment destroyed and lots of other. Facilities and infrastructure in Ukraine and Russia are now offline from the global food markets, the world food program, chief warns that a global food crisis may turn out to be beyond anything we've seen since world war two. [00:01:37] Now the nonprofit take on this is that nonprofits are going to see higher food prices. They're going to see higher gas prices from sanctions, as well as just strains on gas and oil production. And this is a rare moment where global food markets are being impacted by supply and demand as to pose to the more typical factors that we see. [00:02:01] George. I know we want to take this back to nonprofits. If you're and a nonprofit based in America, small, maybe you have a couple staff on your payroll. Why is this important to those organizations? [00:02:13] One, you should be preparing for what the bottom line costs will start to become, especially if you're serving people. In harder to reach areas, working with the world food program, organizing and food. And it's probably already on your radar to be honest, right? We're not telling you anything new. The second thing you should be doing is beginning to fundraise and communicate around this pending can task trophy before, before you're in the moment. [00:02:40] Cause as we know you need the resources now to prepare for later, you need to plant the seeds in the spring to get them in the fall in the same way. I think. That even though you're hearing it here and even in your circles, maybe this is something that is very clearly going to happen. The truth is I'm not seeing it nearly as much in sort of search trends and information, and in general and, and carry it around because you know, a future impending crisis just doesn't get to the front of the paper, the same way that the media disaster and impacts and refugees have, but there is something there's something large coming. [00:03:19] And I think that's an opportunity for your organization to begin that narrative now, to educate first, right, with information, educate your audience about what you see coming from where you sit and what your projected. To then follow up with a preemptive campaign to prepare for what I think we're clearly seeing is going to be a global food crisis and searches for famine sutures searches for food crisis, I anticipate will be going up, but right now there are surprisingly flat. [00:03:50] Absolutely. Great analysis and George, something that we tell our clients is the best time to prepare for breaking news. Is ahead of time and there are ways to do it. We can see things coming, whether it's big political moments in elections, or whether it's this slow burning news story that we will likely see ramp up in the future. [00:04:13] There are things you can do now to prepare for it. And the beneficiaries of many organizations this may be directly affected. And there's lots of different things you can do to prepare for that from the communications and marketing angle to. How you serve communities for example, but I think that's a great analysis. All right. I can take us into our next story. And this is a frustrating one, George one that hits close to home based on my current job description, but Google analytics. Is requiring immediate attention from nonprofits over the next year. The takeaway vests is Google analytics. For those who are unfamiliar is the industry standard web analytics reporting platform. [00:05:01] It's a reporting code. It's a tracking infrastructure. It's a whole system for understanding how people are interacting with your website. Google has been slowly rolling out the updated version of this platform. That's currently called a universal analytics. They are upgrading it to what is being dubbed GA for this has been happening for two years now in molasses level, slow motion. [00:05:29] But just last week, they put out a press statement saying that all universal analytics accounts. So all that historic data, all those accounts, all of universal analytics is going away your data, unless you export and download it going away. That's it's over with. And quite frankly, it's Google anticipating changes in the data privacy and regulatory environment. [00:05:56] But what this means for nonprofits is that you both need to download and store that historic data. And as soon as possible, get the new GA for up and running. So you can start that data collection so that when. Universal analytics goes away. You already have a little bit of runway with historic data to make that transition. [00:06:19] What am I missing, George? [00:06:20] Yeah. I feel like this is a scared, straight program of people panicking, but you're right. What we should note is that you have until July. 2023, July 1st, 20, 23 may seem like over a year away. However, your point about the data continuity stands. If you want to be looking at this time next year, year over year information, you have to make sure that GA for the new instance, GA four is installed, set up and tracking the things that matter to you now. [00:06:49] So you have that overlap. They given a year. Which is, you know, which is great, but they are very serious about this hard cliff and enlarge part because of some of those data, privacy laws and rules that are out there. This may be frustrating. This may be annoying. The other side of this is that if you do nothing, so you're listening to this right now, you park it away. [00:07:08] Like, ah, you know, I'll get to it later. Like one you're gonna be frustrated because you don't have the data year over year that you would probably want for reporting a number two. Is that this could risk your Google ad grant come next year, past July, if you do not have a fully operational and working GA for instance, your analytics tied to, of course your Google ad grant and many times for, for application, maybe they change the rules. [00:07:35] Maybe they change this or app, but this is something that you can't really stick your head in the sand in. And it's something that is, you know, a little bit of work now. And then in terms of the export, you can wait until next year and whole whale will be working. On a lot of different solutions to make it super easy for you to click, click export and at least view some assemblance of historical data as a result of that. [00:07:57] And we're going to create something that is a DIY that people can run with on their own. Later, later this year and into next year, as we get a handle on the real nuance of this, but we bring it up now because it's one of those like not urgent but important. Not urgent, but important things that you should be paying attention to. [00:08:17] Right. [00:08:17] Yeah George, I like the messaging on that. I will also add that if you happen to be listening to this podcast on your unfamiliar with Google analytics, I promise you that your market. Name and your web development team or web developer or vendor, someone who works on your website is familiar. So figure out who that person is, contact them and start thinking about a game plan for acknowledging the shift and George, as you alluded to, we will also be putting out more information and resources in the coming months and year. All right. I can take us into our next story within our summary. And this comes from the nonprofit firstname.lastname@example.org and the title of the story is libertarians are giving locally, not nationally. And the headline is that 70% of households and Florida. The report making charitable. Charitable donations during 2021 with an average donation of a thousand dollars, but the majority of their giving is focused on nonprofits within the state. [00:09:26] So I think in some ways this is something of a counter narrative to some of the threads we've been pulling about national trends in giving and tent pole, giving Bowman's and giving during political seasons. The data here as reported by the nonprofit time shows that. Local giving is still driving the fundraising landscape and a lot of places in this case with specialty. [00:09:51] Yeah reminder that the giving locally still is very much in play. And if you're a local organization thinking about how your. Framing that ask and saying to make sure that that while there are national interests and where our attention is absolutely being pulled to moments of crisis in Ukraine and beyond that, there is still much of a, an appeal when you come back to local, local impact and local dollars putting to work the top three areas, which was interesting for the average donation amounts in the areas where religion basic needs and health You know, I'd be curious, you know, tried to look for other state by state comparisons, but it's interesting to at least look at one example of Florida in this case. [00:10:34] Absolutely. Yes. I can take us into our next story. And this comes from us news and world report, and the title is inflation hits, non-profits services and ability to fundraise. We have been covering inflation and the downstream effects on nonprofit organizations before, but this is yet another article highlighting the problem with higher prices for nonprofits that quite frankly have very thin margins to operate within and at Highland. [00:11:04] A nonprofit out of Cincinnati, I believe that has been looking for a refrigeration truck to help transport food through its various programs. And they've simply not been able to either afford a new truck or a Ford, a used truck. Of course, the. The automobile manufacturing and auto OBL market in general has seen prices shoot through the roof in the past couple of years with supply chain disruptions. [00:11:32] But just another reminder that this is something that's affecting non-profits, it's not going away. Although recent inflation numbers today, Very high. I think the number was over 8% year over year. A couple of signs in there that the rate of growth of inflation might be slowing. So some cautious optimism that it's not going to go up much higher, but let alone we're still at record high inflation numbers. [00:12:01] So it's something to keep in mind for small organizations which are on the front lines of these prices. [00:12:07] organizations specifically working around housing and food insecurity are, are feeling this a quote from Kelly Kuehn, the CEO, Michigan nonprofit association had this quote that's that's something, any non-profit is experiencing now trying to keep up with requests for higher salaries and wages. Added that passion for the mission. [00:12:27] Won't keep non-profit workers from seeking wages elsewhere. There's a lot of strain on human capital for nonprofits. I think that tension is only going to increase as this year continues and basic cost of living. Salaries just to keep up with the rate of inflation is going to become more and more difficult as, as these compounding factors play in. [00:12:52] And of course the people serving the most vulnerable if they're hit so too, are they they're stable. [00:12:57] Absolutely. All right, George, I'll take us into our next story. And we always look for opportunities to talk about cybersecurity because it's so important and [00:13:06] Actually I want to jump backward. I really, I want to make this more practical. So I had this thought really quickly, right? We're talking about inflation. We talked about it a number of times. Here's here's the take, if you messaging, I think you can use this as a potential narrative to say. While other organizations can raise their prices. [00:13:23] When you click the buy something online, when you buy that cup of coffee and buy that next gallon of gas, that just goes up or down, like they control those prices. We can't turn to our stakeholders. We can't tell somebody that this, you know, this food that we're giving you this week cost this much more. [00:13:40] We serve the community in public good, but we're having a hard time keeping up right now with the cost of living. As we all know. But that work sort of can be put in juxtaposition with what for-profit companies can be doing. And we're seeing, and there's a little bit of angst about they're raising their prices, making more expensive for us, guess who can't raise their prices, our service to each other, our service in housing or service to food insecure. [00:14:02] So maybe that is an opportunity to bring in some narrative as it's it's clearly on people's mind about inflation, but bring it into something that's maybe. [00:14:11] Absolutely. You know, to your point, I think inflation will be an extremely salient political messaging. Angle you're going into November. So everyone's going to be talking about it's it's it's it's the economy stupid, right? That's that's going to be the angle. So you might as well play off of it, right? [00:14:30] Like that's a tangible narrative. People are hearing about all the time and yeah. Being able to. You know, narrate how that's affecting you, I think can really humanize your organization to potential donors and people within, within your. [00:14:48] And the way I think you pulled that is not on a macro hand-wringing level. It is on the micro pick up a canopies. Here's our warehouse. Here's this can of peas. It is going to take us an extra fill in the blank gas, fill in the blank cost to get it from here to there, we solve the last mile. That's what nonprofits are doing. [00:15:08] The last mile of we have the resources. We just have to get them to the people that need it. And that cost of driving of applying and getting it there is what's going up. So find those micro stories to pull out. And I think that'll help, especially Nick. You're right. We're going to hear that word used a lot. [00:15:28] It's going to trend in searches and pieces and you can get, you know, news articles written, but he's going to do it on the micro. How much does it cost to get that canopies this year versus last year versus two years ago, to where it needed to go. [00:15:40] Absolutely. That's the way to do it. Bring it home, make it local. Into, into terms people can understand. I absolutely agree. All right. I can take us into our next story. And this comes from local CBS affiliate channel five K P I X San Francisco bay area. And the article is about a scam, San Francisco, nonprofit falling victim to the costliest form of cyber crime. [00:16:08] And again, this type of cyber crime continues to be business, email compromise. We've heard about flashy ransomware attacks. Nope. Standard email phishing is still the most lucrative. And I think the number in here from the FBI was that in the U S in 2021, approximately $2.4 billion were stolen. Representing a 33% increase from 2021. [00:16:36] It comes to just basic email, phishing scams. That's an absurd amount of money for a very low tech way. You know, stealing monthly. And the story here focuses on a nonprofit, a nonprofit account accounting executive, who was the target of phishing emails that actually the hackers were able to insert themselves into an email chain and essentially siphon off money. [00:17:04] And after running the case to the ground and traveling to the bank and involving the FBI and the police who apparently couldn't do anything, apparently now the secret service is investigating that's beside the point. The point is phishing scams are not going away. They're increasing in frequency, they're increasing in their potency and their ability to extract money out of hardworking Americans. [00:17:27] And non-profits what you need to do to stay safe is a couple of. Two factor, authenticate everything. Make sure you anything involving monthly is extremely secure should not be happening over email. Lots of little things that you can do just to kind of secure your organization. George, are there any other takeaways or any other tips you have for nonprofits? [00:17:54] We have a cybersecurity course, our friends over at round table. Technologies have constant updates about this, but here's the point. I want you to understand how simple this was. If you have a CFO, if you have a chief financial, whatever, if you even have a bookkeeper and I can hack their email by simply saying, Hey, can you send me your password? [00:18:14] Oh, I'm the admin. I'm running an it update. Can you send me this really quickly? And I had send it from something that looks pretty confident. They're busy. Oh, that sure. Here you go. I've been meaning to run this up at. Yeah, no problem. We'll get. If I can get that email password and I can just hack one person on a financial thread in your organization, all it was was this person went into the email. [00:18:34] Client, looked through, found a conversation about who was sending what wires to grants. So they did a search for wire instructions, and then they went and just popped into that thread. Replied. Actually, we just had an update on this wire information. Can you change the routing information to this boom gone? [00:18:50] Like that. So I want you to think about how vulnerable that system is because I'm have high confidence that I could do that for a good percentage of folks. If you gave me a target, I don't want that to sink in for a second. As you consider what you know, oh, the lock our files up. No, no, no, no, no, no. [00:19:08] They're going to do a deep phishing attack and they're going to take your money. It's now hopefully becoming. Part of your, your regular diet of insuring against the, in doing, you know, we don't have the time to go through the amount of things that you should be doing, but there are some basic things that will stop 95% of those types of attacks. [00:19:27] I feel like this is a scared straight program now. [00:19:29] We deliver hard trues on this podcast. Sometimes the truth hurts. [00:19:34] All right. Do we have good news? Do we have a, a field feel better? [00:19:38] George, I got a great one for us. Our feel-good story of the day comes from local CBS affiliate channel 13, w J Z so many letters. CVS out of Baltimore. And this is about Baltimore city partnering with local nonprofit Kaboom exclamation point to ensure that children have access to play space equity at schools and underserved communities. [00:20:05] The nonprofit organization, Kaboom has raised over $250 million to build play spaces and playgrounds for kids in the Baltimore area and over 25 places. And. I think this is really awesome because we like, you know, I'm in New York city, you're in California. We both grew up in cities. It's so important to have those spaces at the benefits of that art immense. [00:20:30] So it was awesome to see a nonprofit stepping up here and making our cities a better place for our children. [00:20:37] I have so much respect for Kaboom. They have been in the game for a very long time. And their model of working with tri-sector partnerships, meaning nonprofit for profit and government is excellent. Their funding models are brilliant. Sometimes they, you know, they work very often with those communities to build those play spaces. [00:20:56] And by the way, you know, just speaking as a parent, like public place spaces, just have. A, just a bastion of sanity of health for, for my kids. I know because, you know, during the pandemic you're locked into four, four walls and maybe no backyard. And I gotta tell you it's it meant the world to have even any access to play spaces. [00:21:18] And so this work more important than ever loved to see Kaboom continuing on. And by the way, take a look at their models. There's a lot of smart things going on at Kaboom. [00:21:27] All right. That's what we have for you, Nick. Thanks as always appreciate your help. Synthesizing all of this news. [00:21:34] Thanks. George, I'll talk to you next week.
