From the Mayflower's landing, to the meal shared by English setters and Wampanoag people, much is still widely misunderstood about the Thanksgiving holiday and its history. Connecticut-based educator Chris Newell recently wrote a book for children that helps to untangle some of the myths and misnomers commonly associated with Thanksgiving. For example, the book clarifies that "the holiday we celebrate today does not have any real connection to the Mayflower's landing. In fact, the story that links them was not created until two hundred years later." As Newell notes in his introduction, "The story of the Mayflower landing is different depending on whether the storyteller viewed the events from the boat or from the shore." This hour, Chris Newell joins us. Plus, how is this topic being reframed in Connecticut classrooms? The Connecticut State Department of Education recently published resources for "Teaching Native American Studies." The materials were developed in a collaboration between the five state-recognized Eastern Woodland tribes: Golden Hill Paugussett, Mashantucket Pequot, Mohegan, Paucatuck Eastern Pequot and Schaghticoke. Becky Gomez, the director of education for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, and Sam Tondreau, a member of the Mohegan Tribe as well as their director of curriculum and instruction, discuss.

Allegations of blackmail have been levelled at the owners of a North Shore property which is blocking access to walkers on a popular beach path. The owners want a heritage status removed, so they can sell the property for what it's worth. While the dispute rolls on with the Auckland Council, they've erected a fence on the popular Milford to Takapuna walkway which passes through their property. The path is also part of the 3,000km Te Araroa trail, which runs the length of the country. The owners' lawyer believes a commonsense agreement can be reached, and took the issue to a council committee meeting today. But he was met by mayor Wayne Brown who was not on the same page.

On this episode of the "Doing What Matters" podcast, host Teresa McCloy explores the power of connecting the dots in our life stories. As we approach the end of the year and the holiday season, it's a perfect time to reflect on our experiences and gain insights into ourselves. Teresa shares her own story of a recent vacation with her family and the realization she had about how her father influenced her love for adventure and travel. She reminds listeners to stay curious about their own stories and to be open to learning more about themselves and their connections. Teresa recalls a childhood memory of her father buying a small wooden boat and taking the family on trips to the lake. This sparked her love for travel and adventure, which she had always attributed to her father's work ethic. However, during their recent trip, Teresa realized that her father's desire for adventure and new experiences was just as influential. She connects the dots between her own longing for travel and her father's influence, leading to a greater understanding of herself and her desires. Teresa emphasizes the importance of reflecting on our stories and making connections. She introduces the "my life map now" tool from oneLife Maps, which helps individuals uncover the value in their life stories and see themselves through new eyes. By staying open to learning and resolving past hurts or celebrating successes, we can continue to grow and uncover new aspects of ourselves. Teresa encourages listeners to be curious and approach holiday gatherings with a different perspective, looking for opportunities to gain new insights. For those who have never documented their story, Teresa suggests checking out oneLife Maps and their series of maps that guide individuals through the process of connecting the dots in their life story. Teresa also mentions that in the new year, The REALIFE Process will be launching a community with free resources for further exploration of personal stories. By connecting with others and engaging in conversations about our stories, we can deepen our understanding of ourselves and find support and inspiration along the way. As the holiday season unfolds, she concludes by encouraging everyone to remember that there is value in each person's story and that by connecting the dots, we can find meaning, purpose, and grace in our lives. 00:07 Welcome back to the Doing What Matters podcast.

Josh got into duck hunting through his interest in the Texas Waterfowl Brigade. 00:03:44 - 00:04:06 Do you do any other kinds of hunting? "I'm actually more of a pheasant hunter than a duck hunter" 00:04:27 - 00:04:55 How did you meet Jennifer? "I actually was doing an event down in a little place in North Dakota called Washburn and we went to a DU banquet and I was selling a puppy because we still had a couple of them. I saw an advertisement saying, "join us trip down to Texas". And I thought that was really fun. So I emailed her and that's how it started." 00:05:17 - 00:05:42 What exactly is the North Dakota Waterfowl Brigade? The North Dakota Waterfowl Brigade is a program developed based on the Texas Waterfowl Brigade model. It focuses on educating kids about waterfowl, habitat management, leadership, and teamwork through a five-day camp. 00:09:23 - 00:10:21 Why did you choose the Texas Waterfowl Brigade model?

Josh recommends finding someone experienced to teach you, emphasizing the importance of learning from others, even if the hunt isn't successful. He also suggests that hunting with a group can make the experience more enjoyable. Jensifer's advice is: that in North Dakota, we have organizations that host different Types of hunts. Like, I know our pheasants forever. Like, they're they do a youth hunt, and then our the North Dakota game and fish, Excuse me. The North Dakota Game and Fish, we have there's a they have an r three coordinator who also coordinates some Hunting around waterfowl and things like that, so they're almost like mentored hunts.

Instant FREE Access Now: YES, Enroll Me NOW In Premier Coaching https://members.timandjulieharris.com Is it possible to be successful immediately as a new Realtor? It IS, but only when you follow these 15 Rules of Success. Take the guesswork out of real estate and drill down on what matters most. Note: If you aren't new, but you feel like you're stuck, these rules are for you too. Get unstuck by acting AS IF you just got your license and get to work. First, the Facts: *According to the National Association of Realtors, 87% of Realtors fail within their first 5 years. *On the other hand, the top 1% of real estate agents in the US make over $500,000 in annual income. The median income is $50,000. Keep in mind it only takes on average about 5 sales per year to make $50,000. Most of you can do that by working part-time. *20% of licensees make up 80% of closed real estate transactions. 20% of agents make more than $200,000 yearly. Ready to become an EXPIRED Listing Agent? As promised, here is the discount link for the EXPIRED LISTING LEADS: https://www.redx.com/affiliate/tim-and-julie-harris/?aff_code=670699 The only question you should be asking yourself is: which percentage will you be? Follow these 15 rules which are not just for new agents, but for all agents and you'll be in the top 10% or better. If you choose to wing it and just see how it goes, you'll probably wind up in that first 87% who fail in 5 years or less. "If it's meant to be, it's up to me!" should be your daily, maybe hourly affirmation, starting right now. PART ONE 1. Pick your broker wisely. It's not just about commission splits. Does your broker have stock awards, health insurance, daily education, and revenue share? It's costly to start with the wrong brokerage. Having to switch later costs not only time but money, so make the right decision the first time! (EXP Paid over $240 million in revenue share and equity benefits last year. That's up 20% from the previous year). 2. Commit to earning while you learn and be learning all the time. You don't have to be perfect to be productive. You must take action from day one in order to build your skills quickly, and you have to make 5x the effort you think to get the results you're looking for. Note: The best people to role-play with are actual prospects with actual homes to sell. 3. Create your sphere of influence and expand it daily. These are all the people you already know. They already know, love, and trust you. As such, they are almost always your first 3 to 5 transactions. REAL ESTATE LEADS, LEADS and more LEADS: Question: What is Tim and Julie Harris's favorite PROBATE LEAD PROVIDER? Simple, https://alltheleads.com/harris Use your smartphone contacts to create a database. Talk about real estate all the time with everyone.

Everyone should live within 10 minutes of a public park. Why? Because public green space improves overall health, strengthens community ties, combats climate change, and - when implemented correctly - reduces inequality. Our guest today is George Dusenbury, Vice President Southern Region and the Georgia State Director at the Trust for Public Land, an organization whose mission is to expand access to the outdoors by creating public parks and protecting public lands. In this episode, we explore exciting TPL initiatives like green schoolyards in New York City and the exciting Chattahoochee RiverLands Project that promises to transform the Atlanta metro area and beyond. We also discuss greenspace as essential infrastructure, the importance of local input,, and the resources available for anyone who wants to expand access to nature in their own communities.

An easy answer to this question would be that Sunday is the Sunday of the Resurrection. But there is a great deal more in the answer to this question. Today Fr. James Rooney teaches us the reasons behind Sunday worship and the rhythm and pattern of this worship. As much as it has to do with the Resurrection, the answer to this question also has to do with Creation & Recreation, the redemption of all things in and through our Lord Jesus Christ.
There's often a ton of art in medical spaces, but who are the curators of those health system collections? In s3e44, Platemark host Ann Shafer speaks with Naomi Huth, chief curator and director of the art collection for NYC Health + Hospitals. Held within the Arts in Medicine department, NYC Health + Hospitals has one of the largest public (non museum) art collections in New York City with more than 7,000 works of art, including a number of murals. Their goal is to make art accessible to the public and integrate the collection into healing environments across NYC Health + Hospitals' eleven acute care hospitals, five nursing homes, six diagnostic and treatment centers, and more than seventy community-based primary care sites. A major part of Naomi's job is to highlight the concepts of diversity and accessibility in collecting, collaboration, and mentoring emerging artists. She has focused on acquiring works by underrepresented artists to improve and diversify the collection as well as integrating diverse perspectives into the collection and fostering a better understanding of the issues of today through the lens of art. We talk about how art can reduce stress, offer peace, and help both patients and their families and medical staff members find moments of respite in busy and intense spaces. It's different yet not from being a museum curator. From 2012–2021, Naomi was the curator for the Joseph M. Cohen Family Collection, a large private collection with six locations around the United States. She has previously held curatorial positions at the New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, Rubin Museum, and the de Young Museum. Naomi is a member of the Young Collectors Council acquisitions committee at the Guggenheim, the advisory board of the Center for Photography in Woodstock, Independent Curators International, and is an accredited member of the Appraisers Association of America. She earned her M.A. in Art History and Museum Studies from the City College of New York (CCNY) and her B.S. in Fashion Design and Art History from Drexel University. William Palmer.

RETRO RHLSTP #65 - Brian Blessed and the Big FootIt's the final episode of series 10 of RHLSTP and Rich meets a bearded man who has managed to find a partner (find out how he did it nerds). His guest is the laid-back and yet also intense (and rather beautiful) Peter Serafinowicz. They talk about how it's almost impossible to parody the new President of the United States, but the effective way that Peter managed it and his fears and plans should there be repercussions from the thin-skinned bellend. Also lots of chats about the two Brian Bs (Blessed and Butterfield) and how a stellar cast does not always lead to a commission. Plus behind the scenes at Guardians of the Galaxy and Parks and Recreation and the Pudsey the Dog movie.

What does the Bible say (and not say) about Christ's second coming? Is there a rapture of the church? And what has the Christian Church held about these matters for most of its history? The truth is, most of what is debated in the church these days about these matters do not rise to the level of essential tenets. Yet what we believe about Jesus' coming again can affect how we live our lives for Him in the meantime. Join Pastor Chris for part one in a mini series about the return of Christ as we prepare for "Christ the King Sunday" in two weeks. Along the way, we talked about Dispensationalism and its history in America in particular, and we took a very close look at a very famous passage in 1 Thessalonians to discover what God's word says (and what the Church from the beginning has believed). Here is a pdf copy of the handout/homework sheet that Pastor Chris referred to.

Welcome to Episode #112 of "The Other Side of the Bell", a podcast brought to you by Bob Reeves Brass. In this episode, John talks with Wayne Bergeron and Jeff Bunnell about their recently released album called "Homage" by the Los Angeles Trumpet Ensemble. We hope you'll enjoy their conversation as well as the album. Join us at Dillon Music, November 9-11 for valve alignments and mouthpiece consultations. Email sales@dillonmusic to schedule an appointment! About the Los Angeles Trumpet Ensemble Album "Homage" The recording scene in Los Angeles has a long history of great and highly versatile trumpet playing. For the most part, though, these trumpet players rarely get a chance to be featured. In 1957, Tutti Camarata arranged and produced a record called Tutti's Trumpets that featured some of the top session trumpet players in Los Angeles at that time. That was over 60 years ago. Wayne Bergeron and Jeff Bunnell started talking about doing another recording that would feature some of the current session trumpet players here in Los Angeles. Wayne suggested recording a trumpet ensemble CD to Jeff and they loved the idea and thought a choir of trumpets would work well. With that, the Los Angeles Trumpet Ensemble came into being. In choosing the music Jeff arranged for this CD, he wanted to pay tribute to some of the film composers who are part of the Los Angeles recording scene (and who write so well for the trumpet), and also pay tribute to some of the great trumpet players of the past and present. Jerry Hey graciously wrote the arrangment for the last track, the iconic Al Jarreau tune "Roof Garden". Los Angeles Trumpet Ensemble Members Jeff Bunnell Wayne Bergeron Jon Lewis Dan Fornero Marissa Benedict Dan Rosenboom Rob Schaer Larry Hall Dan Savant About Wayne Bergeron Wayne Bergeron is enjoying a career as one of the most sought-after musicians in the world. Studio sessions, film dates, international touring, jazz concerts, guest appearances, and clinics keep him busy not only in his hometown of Los Angeles but worldwide. Born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1958, Bergeron came to California at age one. He originally started on French horn but switched to trumpet in seventh grade where he found a natural upper register ability. Bergeron credits his junior high and high school teachers, Ron Savitt and Bob Smith, for molding his talent into practical working skills. Bergeron first caught the ear of many when he landed the lead trumpet chair with Maynard Ferguson's band in 1986. Bergeron can be heard on Maynard's recordings of Body and Soul, Big Bop Nouveau, Brass Attitude, and The One and Only Maynard Ferguson. Bergeron demonstrates daily why Maynard remarked, “Wayne is the most musical lead trumpet player I've had on my band.” As a sideman, Bergeron's list of recording credits reads like a “who's who” in contemporary jazz and pop, running the stylistic gamut from Ray Charles to Green Day. Other names include Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Barbra Streisand, Michael Buble, Indina Menzel, Leslie Oden Jr., Herb Alpert, The Jonas Brothers, Burt Bacharach, The Dirty Loops, Seth MacFarlane, Natalie Cole, Celine Dion, Seal, Diana Krall, Tito Puente, Christina Aguilera, Dianne Reeves, Michael Bolton, Earth Wind & Fire, The Pussy Cat Dolls, My Chemical Romance, The Mars Volta, Chicago, Rosemary Cloony, Diane Schuur, Barry Manilow, Lee Ann Womack, Lou Rawls, Eric Marienthal, Kenny G., and David Benoit. Bergeron has worked on over 500 TV & motion picture soundtracks. A partial list of film credits includes Red Notice, Turning Red, Soul, Bob's Burgers, Ford vs. Ferrari, Toy Story 4, Frozen 1 & 2, The Lion King (2019), The Secret Life of Pets, Wreck it Ralph 2, Crazy Rich Asians, Sing 1&2, Moana, Frozen 1 & 2, Get On Up, Toy Story 3, Monsters University, High School Musical 3, Get Smart, Superman Returns, The Simpson's Movie, Dreamgirls, Hairspray, Mission Impossible 3, Ice Age 2, Spiderman 1 & 2, Team America and South Park. Bergeron's featured trumpet solos can be heard on the motion pictures West Side Story (2021 Steven Spielberg), La La Land, Sing, The Incredibles 1 & 2, Rocky Balboa, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Rough Night, Jazzman's Blues, Vacation Friends, Ted 2, Minions, Minions 2:The Rise of Gru, Spies in Disguise, Jersey Boys, The Green Hornet, The Interview, Despicable Me 1, 2 & 3, Duplicity, Princess & the Frog, The Perfect Game,, Hey Arnold (the movie), The Rat Pack, Child Star, Aladdin King of Thieves and High Crimes and many others. Numerous TV credits include Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, SAG Awards, NBC, ESPN & TNT sports themes, American Idol (2001-02), Emmy Awards, Grammy Awards, Animaniacs Reboot, Family Guy, American Dad, Simpson's, Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse, The Cleveland Show, Green Eggs and Ham, Jeopardy, America's Funniest Home Videos, Will and Grace, Phineas & Ferb, Emperor's New School, Mouse Works, Have a Laugh, House of Mouse, King of the Hill, Futurama, Buzz Lightyear, Hercules, and Hey Arnold. Bergeron's greatest love is playing lead in big bands. He has recorded and played with some of Los Angeles' most respected bands including Gordon Goodwin, Arturo Sandoval, Pat Williams, Sammy Nestico, Jack Sheldon, Chris Walden, Tom Kubis, John La Barbara, Bob Florence, Joey Sellers, Ray Anthony, Bill Watrous, Bob Curnow, and Quincy Jones. After being behind the scene for so many years, Bergeron stepped out on his own with his first solo effort, You Call This a Living? This debut project earned him a Grammy nomination in 2004 for Best Large Jazz Ensemble, as well as rave reviews from fans and press worldwide. Bergeron's second CD, Plays Well With Others, released on the Concord Jazz label in 2007, was met with the same acclaim. Bergeron's most current (and personal favorite) CD, Full Circle, was released in January of 2016. Bergeron performs various events for the Hollywood Bowl summer season. He has done guest appearances with the L.A. Philharmonic, The New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Dallas Symphony, Taiwan Symphony, and Tokyo Philharmonic. Bergeron is a National Artist for the Yamaha Corporation of America and is co-designer of the YTR-8335LA trumpet and YFH-8315G Flugelhorn. Bergeron also designed a series of trumpet mouthpieces with Gary Radtke of GR Technologies that are available through Bergeron's website. Bergeron was mentored by legends Uan Rasey, Bobby Shew, Warren Luening, Gary Grant, Rick Baptist, and George Graham. Bergeron hopes to inspire a new generation of young players and enjoys his work as a clinician and educator. “Nothing makes me feel more accomplished than hearing a young musician say that I inspired them or had a positive influence on their life. For me, that's the real payday.” Bergeron is currently on faculty at California State University Northridge. Perhaps Grammy winning composer and bandleader, Gordon Goodwin said it best, “Wayne is a once in a lifetime lead trumpet player.” About Jeff Bunnell Trumpeter Jeff Bunnell has enjoyed a successful career in many musically diverse settings.
