Brad is joined by Dr. Joe Blankholm, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the University of California Santa Barbara. They discuss his new book, the Secular Paradox: On the Religiosity of the Non-Religious. The Secular Paradox: https://nyupress.org/9781479809509/the-secular-paradox/ Blankholm argues that, despite their desire to avoid religion, nonbelievers often seem religious because Christianity influences the culture around them so deeply. Relying on several years of ethnographic research among secular activists and organized nonbelievers in the United States, the volume explores how very secular people are ambivalent toward belief, community, ritual, conversion, and tradition. As they try to embrace what they share, secular people encounter, again and again, that they are becoming too religious. And as they reject religion, they feel they have lost too much. Trying to strike the right balance, secular people alternate between the two sides of their ambiguous condition: absolutely not religious and part of a religion-like secular tradition.

“I want my kids to grow up knowing who I am in real life, not just in their head. I cry in front of them, I'm peculiar, I'm a little weird. I want to show them all facets of myself so they can embrace it for themselves.”   - Brandon McAnderson  Brandon McAnderson is a former All-Big 12 Running Back at the University of Kansas, and today is a sideline reporter and pre-game host for KU football games. He is also an active member in the Kansas City community who brings men together to grow spiritually and address commonly held (and harmful) male stigmas present in today's world.  In today's show, Brandon shares why Father's Day is a good time for men to check in on their mental health. That means pausing and reflecting on all you have done as a father this year, and more importantly celebrating the big and small moments that you bring to your kids' lives – spiritually, mentally, and even a vulnerable side to let them see the real you, and not an idea of who you are. Brandon shares stories about his father, and the gratitude that has grown in his heart over the years for his dad, so much that his fatherhood has impacted the way he sees and loves his own two boys today. Brandon also opens up about his own bout of depression, and his inspirational journey toward healing and how it led to helping more men in our community.  Later, Dr. Robin chats with Sabrah Parsons, who is an Aquatics Director at the YMCA of Greater Kansas City. When she finished swimming lessons at age 15, little did she know that when her mother signed her up to be a lifeguard, that would be where she found her passion for swim safety. Sabrah shares that drowning is the number two leading accidental death for ages 0-8 – and it's completely preventable with drowning prevention classes. Sabrah describes what parents can look for in flotation devices for kids, and how to know if a swim class will teach their kids the proper techniques to self-rescue if there comes a time.  Three Takeaways:   How depression can show up in subtle ways and hide behind failure in our lives.  Relying on other people to make us happy isn't realistic – we need to search for the right mental health tools that work for us and have them ready in our pocket before a crisis happens.  Why swim lessons can prevent drownings up to 80% - plus three important moves the YMCA aquatic program teaches kids to promote self-rescue.  Mentioned In the Episode:  The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz  Big Shifts Foundation  YMCA of Greater Kansas City  Drowning prevention classes at the YMCA  Puddle Jumper flotation devices for kids Connect:   Facebook  Instagram  LinkedIn  Twitter  YouTube

Richmond resident Jeffrey Thomas Jr. filed a federal suit in the Eastern District of Virginia last week that picks up similar arguments made by Richmond attorney Paul Goldman for why some think the House districts currently in place are unconstitutional. Goldman’s suit was dismissed for lack of standing nearly a year after he filed. Thomas and representatives from the Virginia Attorney General’s office were in court yesterday for a status update in the case. Judge David Novak issued an order requiring both parties to file a joint stipulation of facts by June 17. Thomas will have eight days to respond to whatever the state of Virginia files. The state will have five days to respond. No date has been set for another hearing. For more information, read coverage in the Virginia Mercury. Albemarle County releases climate vulnerability assessmentOne item on tomorrow’s agenda for the Albemarle Board of Supervisors is a 176-page document that identifies how the county and its residents will be affected by shifting weather patterns. The Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment looks ahead to how extreme heat, drought, wildfires, and flooding may affect the area. There’s also the threat a changing climate will bring new pests that will affect crops. (read the document)The assessment is a step toward developing a climate resilience plan.“Some of the changes are unavoidable and even while we try to mitigate and reduce the severity of climate change, we also need to prepare for some of those impacts,” said Gabe Dayley, Albemarle’s climate protection coordinator. Dayley said the climate action plan is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to meet regional goals to be carbon neutral and fossil free by 2050. He made his comments on the Let’s Talk podcast produced by Albemarle’s communications and public engagement department. “Our vulnerability and risk assessment looks at the kinds of specific local weather changes that we can expect,” Dayley said. “Things like increasingly intense and long heat waves or sudden and more severe rainstorms that lead to flash flooding.” Visit the county’s website to hear more. The report was put together with support and work from the Piedmont Environmental Council. In disclosure, that group is a sponsor of the Week Ahead newsletter. Water-powered grain mill in Nelson gets support from AFID grantThis is Ag Week in Virginia, and Governor Glenn Youngkin has announced the latest recipients of the state Agriculture and Forestry Industry Development grant program.

This time around the grants focus on infrastructure. Nelson County requested financial assistance for Deep Roots Milling to upgrade a water-powered grain mill built in the late 18th century. According to the press release, the $22,500 in state funds will help pay for a new sifting room and new bagging equipment. Other recipients include $25,000 for Piedmont Processing of Gordonsville in Orange County to add more cooling space for its slaughterhouse, $25,000 for barge to serve a collective of oyster farms in Northampton County, and $9,000 for a commercial kitchen expansion in Bedford County.

They have developed both a constrained plan that would anticipate around $26 million funds that might be generated through becoming a regional transportation authority with taxation power, as well as one that assumed funding would be found to increase the frequency of service. That has an estimated $70 million price tag. The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors had their review on June 1. “These concepts are here to help you imagine and understand what kind of outcomes are available at two different levels of investment,” said Scudder Wagg of Jarret Walker + Associates. This work will be completed before a second study will begin on how transit operations should be governed in the future.“So this transit vision study really is identifying the potential improvements to the regional transit system and establishing that long term goal and plan vision and the governance study is really what are the steps to get to that vision that we’ve defined,” said Tim Brulle of AECOM. He’s the project manager for the vision plan. The idea in both visions is to increase how often buses move through the community. “Frequency means freedom effectively,” Wagg said. “The more frequent service is, the much shorter the wait is, the much likelier you are to get somewhere soon.”Wagg said at the moment, around 60 percent of residents of urban Albemarle and Charlottesville are close to some transit service, but only about 15 percent are close to frequent service. Both visions expand the number of areas covered by on-demand service where people can call for service on the same day. Currently, a ride on Jaunt has to be booked a day in advance. But in general, the plan without identified funding would increase service. The unconstrained vision would seek to increase fixed-route service to seven days a week from morning into the evening. “One of the key things that is likely to significantly improve access to opportunity, particularly for people who work in retail, service, and hospital jobs where many people have to work evenings and many people have to work Sundays,” Wagg said. “Those types of jobs where if you aren’t there for them on Sunday, they have to have a car and therefore have to incur the high costs of owning a car.” Supervisor Ann Mallek is the sole elected official left from an effort in the late 2000’s to create a regional transit authority. She wanted to make clear the community tried once before for a sales tax to fund increased transit, but a referendum did not make it out of the General Assembly. “Money doesn’t just appear when we don’t have the authority to raise it,” Mallek said. Supervisor Ned Gallaway said service along urban corridors in his district needs to be frequent to accommodate the new units that have been approved during his tenure, such as the Rio Point project that got the okay last December. He pointed out proponents argued transit could help mitigate traffic congestion.“Over a thousand units, 1,300, 1,400 units that are going to build out there, and if they’re sitting on a sixty-minute transit line, that’s not going to work,” Gallaway said. Gallaway said the on-demand transit pilot that Albemarle will begin next year will go a long way to helping determine what the county needs.Supervisors Bea LaPisto-Kirtley and Diantha McKeel had already seen the presentation because the Jefferson Area Regional Transit Partnership got a briefing in late May. McKeel wanted clarification on the role the University of Virginia Transit System would play in the vision. “We tend to think about UVA as doing their own thing,” McKeel said. “That’s what they’ve done for years with their students and faculty and staff. Having said that, I know they are working really hard with us at the regional transit partnership about coming together on transit in this community.” Wagg said that the unconstrained vision anticipates more involvement by UVA. “There is an obvious and enormous transit demand within and around a university and the Grounds at UVA needs really a high frequency service within a pretty limited space so it is understandable they run their own service,” Wagg said. Wagg said an idea in the unconstrained vision is to trade resources with UVA. For instance, a  Bus Rapid Transit system similar to the Pulse in Richmond could travel down U.S. 29 and terminate somewhere on Emmet Street. “And then the University could run a more community service that serves the Grounds as a primary focus but also serves the community at large,” Wagg said. Charlottesville City Council had their review on June 6. The presentation was much the same as what Albemarle and the Regional Transit Partnership saw, but Wagg repeated why having to wait on a bus that comes once an hour is an obstacle.“Relying on service every 60 minutes is extremely hard,” Wagg said. “You can think about relying on a 60 minute route is a little bit like if there was a gate at the end of your driveway that only opened once an hour. You had best be in your car with your coffee ready to go at 7 a.m. if you need to get out at 7 a.m. to get to work. And if you miss it, then you are not leaving until 8 a.m.” Wagg reminded Council that many of the current CAT routes do not operate on Sunday. City Councilor Brian Pinkston said the unconstrained vision is compelling and certainly appeared to be more attractive. But he expressed some skepticism. “This would be a great system to enact but how do we change behavior such that people would use it?” PInkston said. Wagg said if people have choices about how to get around, they’ll take transit. “A major reason people don’t take transit today is because it’s very unlikely to be useful to the trip they want to make,” Wagg said. For instance, Wagg said a trip from Pantops to the Piedmont Virginia Community College would take a very long time with multiple transfers. “Changing that dynamic of ‘will someone choose to ride’ is making it far more likely that the trip that they look up will be reasonably competitive to take transit,” Wagg said. Vice Mayor Juandiego Wade said he was concerned that outreach efforts have not been robust.“I’m just afraid that you may get input from the same people and we kind of know what it is,” Wade said. “We’ve got to do a better job of getting input. I can tell you if this is all you’re going to do, I can assure you of what we’re going to get.” Extra service will mean extra drivers, and Councilor Michael Payne said their needs must be taken into consideration up front. “We can drop any plans or changes we want but if we don’t have sufficient drivers to run those routes, it won’t work,” Payne said. “I know we’re already seeing significant problems in being able to maintain frequency of our current routes because of a shortage of bus drivers.” Payne is another member of the Regional Transit Partnership. He said the unconstrained vision should be a goal, but a realistic approach needs to be taken. “How do we, once this is finalized, bring it back down to earth and figure out what are the level of investments we need to specifically plan for here in the city and what are the specific steps needed to start to get Jaunt, [Charlottesville Area Transit], and the University Transit Service working together to move to that Regional Transit Authority?” Payne said. And that’s where the governance study would come in. If there was to be a regional authority, that could also include surrounding counties. The Greene County Board of Supervisors gets their review of the plan tonight, and its the Fluvanna Board’s turn on Wednesday. The next step is a virtual meeting on June 23 in which the consultants will present both the constrained and unconstrained visions. There’s also a community survey that seeks to gather input on the unconstrained and constrained visions. What do you think? No use telling me.

Join America's Roundtable co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy with Cheryl Chumley, author and online opinion editor of The Washington Times on her newly released book "Lockdown: The Socialist Plan to Take Away Your Freedom." The discussion highlights serious concerns of how Washington's bureaucratic structures are seeking new ways to impose draconian regulations and exert greater control through an unaccountable administrative state. On America's Roundtable, Chumley, Srdoc and Anand Samy will also focus on the recent gathering of the global power elite in Davos, Switzerland, and the agenda augmented by the World Economic Forum, the sponsoring corporations, and its leading figure Klaus Schwab to implement a “Great Reset” of capitalism. The conversation also highlights the 78th anniversary of D-Day and the significance of affirming the principled policy of peace through strength. What leaders are saying about Lockdown: The Socialist Plan to Take Away Your Freedom (https://www.amazon.com/LOCKDOWN-Socialist-Plan-Take-Freedom/dp/163006209X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=4K4MGJXWB1D4&keywords=LOCKDOWN%3A+The+Socialist+Plan+to+Take+Away+Your+Freedom&qid=1654188358&s=digital-text&sprefix=lockdown+the+socialist+plan+to+take+away+your+freedom%2Cdigital-text%2C125&sr=1-1-catcorr): "Cheryl Chumley's Lockdown exposes the truth about the Left's exploitation of COVID-19 and the dangers of big government. This book is an important tool for all Americans to defend their God-given freedom and liberties." - Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives "Our personal liberties are so easy to take for granted, but if the growing gang of Socialists have their way, we will regret not having paid attention and assuming such a stupid thing would never happen in America. Cheryl Chumley is a gifted writer and courageously explains what's at stake. Don't put off reading this book and regret that you failed to realize the threat we face." - Gov. Mike Huckabee, New York Times bestselling author and host of Huckabee "The Pandemic reminded us of how fragile our liberties are. Cheryl Chumley shows us how close we came to losing them for good and what we can do to secure them in time for the next challenge." - Cal Thomas, syndicated columnist and bestselling author "The Hippocratic Oath states: 'First, do no harm.' When a plague originated in a Chinese Communist Party lab in Wuhan began spreading like a prairie fire across America, President Trump faced a no-win situation - how best to stop it. In LOCKDOWN, Cheryl Chumley gets to the heart of the dilemma that POTUS warned us about on that March day - don't let the cure be worse than the disease. Cheryl Chumley is one of the most important voices in the Trump Movement and LOCKDOWN is a must-read for those 'Deplorables' who want to understand the real threat America faces." - Steve Bannon, host of War Room and former White House chief strategist for President Donald J. Trump On the new book Lockdown authored by Cheryl Chumley (https://www.amazon.com/LOCKDOWN-Socialist-Plan-Take-Freedom/dp/163006209X/ref=sr_1_1?crid=4K4MGJXWB1D4&keywords=LOCKDOWN%3A+The+Socialist+Plan+to+Take+Away+Your+Freedom&qid=1654188358&s=digital-text&sprefix=lockdown+the+socialist+plan+to+take+away+your+freedom%2Cdigital-text%2C125&sr=1-1-catcorr): _Lockdown is a terrifying story of not only the chaotic freefall of American freedoms during the opening stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the dangerous growth of government power that continues today. Lockdown is a warning that the extraordinary powers invoked by left-wing Democrats and others, justified by claims of public health and safety, have begun the unravelling of America's constitutional order and our most cherished freedoms. Using COVID-19 as a cover, Democrat leaders and their bureaucratic health advisers seized powers the Constitution never gave them, and ordered citizens to stay off streets and out of public parks, banned them from their workplaces, closed down their schools, and made church attendance a crimes — even as these same leaders and their left-leaning cronies blithely, arrogantly, and outrageously allowed mass protests, kept open abortion clinics and did as they pleased.

I see it all the time; guys who think they're doing the "right" things for their fitness and body, but in actuality it's hurting them. Often times, it's because there is just so much information out there, most of it conflicting, and it's difficult to know if you're on the right track or just falling victim to another fad or scam. Billions of dollars each year are wasted this way and it infuriates me to no end. So today I'm going to share some common things that you might think are moving you towards your fitness goals, but in all reality are moving you further away from them. You're eating healthy, but are overeating healthy foods. Frustrating I know, but it does happen often. Blowing out your calorie deficit by giving yourself a few "cheat" meals or days on the weekends because you've been eating clean all week. Believing all organic foods are healthy. Eating "diet" foods that are actually filed with fake ingredients, preservatives, and chemicals. Relying on "healthy" detoxes or cleanses. Adding butter and/or oil to drinks. Following fad diets that are making things worse for you in the long run. Eating too many protein bars/packaged "health" foods. Relying on flawed calorie counting methods. Following a training program for too long because it worked in the past. Focusing on cardio for weight loss instead of strength training. Following IIFYM thinking it doesn't matter how much you eat as long as you hit your target macros. This list could go on and on, but these are some of the most common issues I see.

Hey y'all!! Today we are going to be looking at our 401K's. I am bring you an interview with Chris Odegard, The Prolific Investor. Chris is an average guy who had a white-collar job in the corporate world and followed the only thing he knew for decades, conventional wisdom and conventional investments. This worked relatively well until 2009, when he experienced an illiquidity event where he lost 55% of his assets and thousands of dollars per month in cash flow. Then, Chris read Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad, and his mind was opened to a different type of investing. In just nine years, Chris recouped the 55% he had lost and multiplied it many times over and now shares his experience and knowledge with you through his book Get off Your A$$ and Manage Your Money: Why You Need Alternative Investments and his alternative investment blog at TheProlificInvestor.net. What's wrong with 401Ks anyway? "It is a very different time now, and I don't believe this path will work for my children and other young people today. They will need to be smarter at a younger age than I was. A look at some statistics from a study conducted by GoBankingRates.com clearly tell us that conventional wisdom isn't working": 34% of Americans have $0 in savings 69% of Americans have less than $10K in saving 46% of Americans have $0 in retirement savings 65% of Americans have less than $10K in retirement savings 49% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck 36% of Americans believe they are ready for retirement Email: chris@jcesolutions.net _____________________________ STEP 1: Need passive income clarity??

This is one of my most important podcasts of the last five years. Today we explore the origin, usage, and meaning of the Sacred Name of God Radhasoami (pronounced "Ra-Dha-Swam-e"). There is background shared on the founder and foundation of the Radhasoami Satsang. In addition to some rare history being presented here for the first time, this is primarily a Sant Mat Satsang Podcast mostly consisting of spiritual readings (Satsang Discourses) from various masters, also mystic poetry (Kabir, Sant Tulsi Sahib, Sar Bachan of Soamiji Maharaj and Prem Bani Radhasoami of Huzur Maharaj). The nature of the Supreme Being and the soul are explored, the Bhakti Path of the Lover and the Beloved. There is a discourse defining The Six Key Goals of Satsang, the format for communicating about the vital teachings of the masters on living a spiritual way of life and correct methods of meditation leading one to exploring the Inner Regions and Heavenly Realms. Shared are the Four Essential Eternal Truths ("the Four Sats"), The Seven Devotional Practices of Sant Mat, also, "The Cosmos Is A Symphony of Vibrating Currents or Strings", by Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram.   "The place where people are always talking about the secrets of the path of Surat Shabd Yoga, is true Satsang." (Huzur Maharaj Rai Saligram)   Sant Tulsi Sahib: "O Jiva [captive Soul somewhere in time]! Give up all blind adherences and beliefs, concentrate within and seek the Supreme Being there, adopting Him alone as your goal. Do ponder over what I say and see for yourself with eyes wide open that there is none in this world whom you can call your own. You should adopt the Supreme Being alone as your prop and support."   Kabir: "Keep on reciting God's name, and you will live pleasantly in the world. With true love as your master, your life-map will change."   "Dariya meditates on the One Lord, and thereby resolves all problems (mundane and spiritual)." (Sant Dariya Sahib of Marwar)   "Resting in the protection of Radhasoami Dayal [the Compassionate, Merciful Lord of the Soul], one should give up all fears, worries, doubts and reveries. Relying on His mercy, one should become free from care and anxiety. It is only when one becomes care-free in respect of this region [the material universe, pinda desh, samsara,], that one will be able to perform Arti [worship, meditation]. This is what the cushion of a care-free state means." (Discourses of Babuji Maharaj)   "The Supreme Father is a vast homogeneous Ocean of Pure Spirit. He is perfect, sufficient in Himself to Himself, in an ecstatic state of love and bliss. Before creation, He alone was conscious. There was none but He to see, and none but Him to be seen. There was only the Lord immersed in His own rapturous bliss. That Limitless Reservoir of Love which alone was in existence, with none to adore or exchange love with Him, was an Ocean of Absolute Bliss (ananda). His primary characteristic is love... He is nothing but a Vast Reservoir of Love and Bliss." (Myron Phelps, Phelps Notes)   "To know the sweetness of the Infinite within us, that is the cause, the reason, the purpose, the only purpose of our being." (Nicholas of Cusa)   "Look for and search for God within yourself, within your own body. God resides inside. Look for him there."

In this episode of This Week in Health Tech, Vik and Jimmy focus on keeping healthcare uninterrupted: 24/7 end to end monitoring of applications and integration between applications.  Vik and Jimmy start out with discussing working from home and hybrid working. Because of digital transformation and increasing number of mobile and web applications, it is becoming a bigger challenge for healthcare organizations to stay on top of desktop, web, and mobile application issues. Relying on manual reporting of issues is going to become an even bigger problem. Vik provides example of how issues in production environment impact patient care by discussing registration information flow from EHR to downstream applications. There are multiple points where there could be point of failure, end users may not get the right information at the right time. Helpdesk has limited knowledge of applications and they deal with a lot of access issues. and it is not practical for helpdesk team to understand every application and its functionality. Jimmy and Vik then discuss an example in ER, where technical application or integration issues may have a huge impact on patient outcomes. Manual monitoring is impossible in a healthcare environment to keep track of all the integrations and application functionality. Tido's end to end monitoring technology is constantly monitoring all applications and integrations to avoid reliance on manual intervention. Vik talks about the advantages of automated 24/7 end-to-end applications and integration monitoring and shares the experiences of using this technology at healthcare organizations. Jimmy asks about digital transformation impact on this applications monitoring. Vik indicates that digital transformation will have huge impact on how applications and interfaces are being monitored because organizations are adding mobile and web applications at an expedited rate. Healthcare organizations are also figuring out their digital transformation and app management strategy, which maybe a discussion point for another episode. Continuing to rely on manual reporting of issues is a risk that is going to become bigger as more and more applications are added to the mix. Vik thinks one of the main reason healthcare organizations are not using automated end-to-end applications and integration monitoring and keep relying on manual intervention because that is the status quo and that is how we have been doing it. Just because it has been done this way does not mean it is the right way of diagnosing and reporting issues. Vik talks about automated notifications and how the monitoring solution plugs into heldesk software and integration w/ Microsoft Teams to keep helpdesk team informed about application and integration issues.

This Podcast Is Episode Number 473, And It's About How Technology Helps Construction Businesses Save Money The use of technology in construction has come a long way. Many articles have already been written about how construction has been sluggish in adopting new advancements in technology compared to other business sectors. However, more and more companies, especially small construction businesses, have been open to using technology to improve their operations.    Any change is difficult–especially in business. Changing how things have always been done in the past involves a lot of effort, persistence, and flexibility, not to mention financial investment. To sustain the interest and efforts towards these changes, it's crucial to fully understand and not lose sight of the benefits of adopting technology. For businesses, increasing the bottom line and reducing costs are always practical reasons to leap.    Here are the ways technology helps construction businesses reduce costs: Pre-construction Process From bidding up to gathering the materials and workforce required for a project, there are many inefficiencies that technology can solve. Relying on paper or even disparate systems can cost different stakeholders a lot of time and money in the pre-construction phase.  Careful planning helps contractors prepare for a project where delays are minimized; budgets are accurately forecasted and adhered to, and, ideally, different apparent and hidden risks are identified and mitigated. This applies to various participants in a project. Planning is equally vital if you are a subcontractor or supplier to a big project.  End-to-end project management software tailored to construction projects solves many of these issues. It also serves as a single source of truth for different participants in the project. Traditionally, most documents like plans and blueprints are in the form of hard copies, making it difficult to communicate changes and practice dynamic version control. The time spent passing on and confirming new information is necessary when dealing with paper references. These are eliminated when plans and documents are digitized. Not only is time saved, but errors and miscommunication are greatly minimized. The transparency and efficiency resulting from embracing technology in the pre-construction phase pay off beyond the savings when plans are created. The increased efficiency and transparency also foster timely progress and early discovery of issues when the project is in full swing.  Business Operations For smaller contractors and construction businesses, ensuring that back-office operations are as error-free and optimized as possible is crucial, especially with the razor-thin margins in the industry. While those on the job site are hard at work ensuring that services, labor, and materials are delivered up to the client's expectations, those who work inside offices to support projects, especially on the finance side, benefit significantly from technology in optimizing work–ensuring that precious hours are used in high-value activities instead of being consumed by repetitive and easily-automated tasks.  Accounts receivables, accounts payable, payroll, and general accounting functions are among those where embracing technology makes an immediate impact. Many of those in construction accounting already use spreadsheets to manage accounts and finance. Construction accounting has complexities that require different approaches where using disjointed spreadsheets can fall short. Additionally, relying on spreadsheets and manual file management opens up businesses to risky errors that lead to poor records, inaccurate data, and poor decision-making. Another area where technology can save construction businesses from losing profits and time complies with legal requirements. For payments, a fundamental but often unwieldy portion of credit management is ensuring that all projects worked on are protected by lien rights. States have varying requirements to preserve mechanics' lien rights. Staying on top of preliminary notices can be cumbersome, yet overlooking them can cost big. Automating notice tracking and filing through lien management software is a must for contractors, subcontractors, and material suppliers working on multiple projects.  On The Job Site One of the most powerful benefits of using software in construction is improved communication. The ability of different construction participants to stay on the same page as far as the progress of the project and the necessary hand-offs and confirmations are simplified and streamlined using tailored software. Even emails can get unwieldy and disjointed quickly and cause "email blindness" that discourages people from checking communication in real-time due to email communication's bulky and lengthy nature.  Through features that ensure transparency and clear communication that construction software often offers, participants can focus on their project roles instead of digging through mountains of messages and relaying information to multiple point-people. The use of mobile devices amplifies these benefits. Most software in construction can be accessed through tablets and phones, offering businesses a cost-effective way to communicate in real-time. Drone Technology To those who have embraced drone technology, the pay-off has been manifold. Drones help construction businesses in many ways, from reduced staffing needs for site surveys and monitoring to using drones in conjunction with AI to monitor the efficiency and productivity of those on the job site. Drone technology also helps contractors map out the construction process even before resources are delivered to the site, so less time is wasted moving resources and people around. Safety is also increased because previously hazardous tasks can be done via drones, such as monitoring high-rise projects.  Technology pays off Adopting new technology is a challenge, but it's worthwhile when you know how you're benefiting. Whether you're the decision-maker for new technology investments or putting together a case to get buy-in for new tech, hopefully, this article has helped.  About The Guest Author: Patrick Hogan is the CEO of Handle.com, where they build software that helps contractors and material suppliers with lien management and payment compliance.

About the book:  LOCKDOWN is a terrifying story of not only the chaotic freefall of American freedoms during the opening stages of the COVID pandemic, but the dangerous growth of government power that continues today. LOCKDOWN is a warning that the extraordinary powers invoked by left-wing Democrats and others, justified by claims of public health and safety, have begun the unravelling of America's constitutional order and our most cherished freedoms. Using COVID-19 as a cover, Democrat leaders and their bureaucratic health advisers seized powers the Constitution never gave them, and ordered citizens to stay off streets and out of public parks, banned them from their workplaces, closed down their schools, and made church attendance a crimes — even as these same leaders and their left-leaning cronies blithely, arrogantly, and outrageously allowed mass protests, kept open abortion clinics and did as they pleased. Relying on her trademark aggressive reporting style, Cheryl K. Chumley explains how the radical left is using pandemic policies as a template for increasing controls over the lives of citizens as they build a one-party, socialist state in America. A sequel to her bestselling Socialists Don't Sleep, in LOCKDOWN, Chumley exposes how hypocritical, elitist, and radical leftists are still using the coronavirus to score political points and steal individual rights – as the original pandemic served as dress rehearsal in the march toward the new fascism.

We are so close to one of my favorite times of year! School is almost out and summer is near. One of my favorite things about this time of year is that I decided a few years ago that I would work less during the summer. My kids are home more often and making this decision has allowed me to really spend this time with them and enjoy the summers we have together. And I love summer (who doesn't love summer?)! We're busy, we're on the road, we're at the pool, and I want to not have to work as much. But as a photographer, you may be wondering how the heck that is even possible. Today I'm walking through how I logistically work less in the summer, because this decision wasn't just made and implemented on a whim. There's quite a bit of effort and planning that has gone into it, but I really think it can be doable for you as well if you are wanting to lighten your load during the summer. Here are some of the main points I talked about in this episode: Consider your why Balancing seasons of hustle and rest Examining calendar patterns Planning and mindset shifts for your off seasons Setting boundaries Understanding goals and income expectations for different months Scaling back with what you are doing How stacking and batch days can be helpful when you have limited work days Relying on my team and outsourcing to reduce my workload My typical summer schedule Full show notes here Some of the best conversations happen after the show in my private Facebook group, Take It Personally Podcast.

Today we are joined by Dr. Shannon Walsh, Associate Professor of Theatre History, and author of Eugenics and Physical Culture Performance in the Progressive Era: Watch Whiteness Workout (Palgrave MacMillan, 2020). In our conversation, we discussed the origins of women's physical culture in the United States, the role that physical culture reformers played in producing femininity and whiteness, and the possibilities for anti-racist and anti-sexist sport to reconceptualize the white supremist roots of American athleticism. In Eugenics and Physical Culture Performance in the Progressive Era, Walsh traces the beginnings of reform era physical culture, paying special attention to the way that physical culturists attempted to shape women's bodies. She argues that their efforts hinged on using exercise to produce femininity and whiteness and that they prefigured the larger eugenic movements aimed at perpetuating the white race later in the 20th century. In each chapter she looks at different physical culturists or physical cultural movement. Her second chapter looks at Steele MacKaye and Americanised Delsarte, a physical cultural practice that combined acting, dance and exercise. Her third chapter focuses on Dudley Allen Sargent and mimetic workouts that introduced working class motions – for example wood chopping - to middle and upper-middle class men and women at Ivy League colleges. The fourth and fifth chapter work together to unpack the complicated position of women's physical culture, femininity and motherhood. In chapter four, Walsh shows how Abby Shaw Mayhew and the YWCA articulated a genre of motherhood, which Walsh calls “social motherhood,” that reframed women's exercise as domestic and maternal rather than grotesque and masculine. In the fifth chapter, Walsh examines Bernarr MacFadden – the Barnum of physical culture – to showcases the places where advertising, motherhood, and women's exercise came into explicit contact. Relying on a close reading of physical culture through critical theory, these main chapters trace the intersections between exercise, femininity, motherhood, race and social class, to illustrate how debates over these issues helped to produce whiteness. Whether they were in elite educational institutions in the Northeast, Midwestern metropolises like Minneapolis, or travelling around the country these experts helped to code physical culture as specifically as womanly, middle class, white, and ultimately as unremarkable. He final body chapter, chapter six, looks at physical culture for indigenous women in three sites: the Odanah Mission School, the Model Indian School at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis, and the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Unlike their white counterparts, indigenous women were not offered significant opportunities for physical exercise and if they were it was only for the purpose of assimilation. Unsurprisingly, many indigenous girls and women challenged those expectations and were successful athletes. Keith Rathbone is a Senior Lecturer at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. He researches twentieth-century French social and cultural history. His book, entitled Sport and physical culture in Occupied France: Authoritarianism, agency, and everyday life, (Manchester University Press, 2022) examines physical education and sports in order to better understand civic life under the dual authoritarian systems of the German Occupation and the Vichy Regime.

Key Points, Top Takeaways, and Memorable Quotes“In 2017, I was just kinda doing life, had two little kids and a house, a pool in the backyard, and a job.  It was 120 degrees outside, but to get back to the cancer story.” 3:54“One thing I didn't know about Testicular Cancer is that it's the most common type of cancer in white males between the ages of 18-34, which is a very big eye-opening thing; I was diagnosed at 38.” 7:54“Besides being told you have cancer, to me, the scariest thing about it was just the word chemotherapy.” 9:21“I played volleyball during chemotherapy with friends and I felt pretty good.  I had to take it easy and chemotherapy made you a little more sensitive to the sun, and obviously, energy levels are a little lower.” 14:50“I'm very grateful that I responded the way that I did to chemotherapy.” 15:14“I compared it to sports and this was the path that I needed to do to get better for cancer and chemotherapy was the vehicle.” 16:21“There's a reason middle blockers don't set.” 16:45“The key is to check yourself; self-exam (hate to say it and laugh but) or have someone check for you.” 21:44“The social connection and the physical exertion was so big for me for my own mentality knowing that I could be going through chemotherapy but I'm still able to play volleyball.” 23:19“When other friends of mine go through life adversity and troubles and tests, I always want to be there to help them and make them know that I'm there to help them if they want my help.  They have to come to me; I'll make myself available.” 24:35“A good mental check for me to know that I could still compete.” 34:02“When I was playing full time, I would train harder than the matches were so that the matches seemed easier.” 37:46“What it felt like to have that emotion flow through me from volleyball, but then from all challenges and to overcome them and to get back to a place where I was satisfied with volleyball.” 50:58“When I was coaching at the college level, there was no social media.  There was none of this pressure from external factors, from opening up instagram and seeing yourself get blocked on repeat every single ten seconds.” 56:36“Accept it. It's volleyball. You got blocked. Big deal.” 56:59“Let them try all the sports, they'll pick whichever sport they want to play, then when they get to the level where it's more serious, there's other dedicated full-time coaches for them to get coaching.” 58:14“I really do enjoy talking about volleyball without it being to a team that I'm coaching or seeing faces and having to kind of rearrange your talk track a little bit.” 1:02:43“I know that I need to have a goal athletically that's physically challenging for me to work towards, for my own personal psyche, and how I operate when I'm with my kids, what I want to do and where my focuses are.  1:14:33“It's not about going back and changing what's happened in my life to have gotten me to where I am today.  It's analyzing and thinking about the choices I've made given the situations that I was in that have brought me to where I am today, and what I can take from them moving forward for myself and the most important people around me in my life, whether it's family or friends.” 1:22:39“It's not looking back in regret, but it's learning from the choices and helping me make the right choices moving forward so it puts me in the place to be the things that I wanna be for myself, and as a parent for my kids or a friend or whatever I need to be for that day.”  1:23:12“Realize where you are, what you have, take it, and be better for it.” 1:23:58 Guest Bio - Matt Prosser was born and raised in Ventura, California and now lives in Hermosa Beach.

Overall, Matt competed in 105 professional beach volleyball events between 2003 and 2018.  His final main draw appearance was in the 2018 Manhattan Beach Open when he partnered with Eric Beranek as the Q34 seed winning four matches to qualify for the Main Draw approximately one year after being diagnosed and recovering from testicular cancer.  Matt turned his love of indoor and beach volleyball into an emerging career in international and domestic broadcasting, doing play-by-play and color commentary for Long Beach State Men's Volleyball, Volleyball World, and Italian Professional Indoor Volleyball.  Matt broadcasts VNL matches and will join AVP events later in 2022.  Outside of volleyball, Matt enjoys coaching his sons sports teams, and stays physically and philanthropically active, supporting the Arthritis Foundation and will ride in the California Coastal Classic Bike Ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles.Show Notes 0:00 - What I Meant to Say Podcast Intro0:18 - Introduction1:57 - Comeback Story2:10 - Cancer Survivor Story2:52 - From the Beginning4:19 - During the Physical Exam5:49 - Diagnosed March of 20176:20 - What's the Course of Action?8:48 - 5 Years Clear in May9:11 - 9 Weeks of Chemo then Back to Volleyball10:28 - Chemotherapy Was Very Scary13:12 - Raw Vegan13:48 - Grain Brain Book14:30 - An Athlete's Perspective on Cancer Treatment15:54 - Only 28 Days 16:31 - Blocking Analogy and the Importance of Setting18:29 - Back to Your Chemotherapy Approach19:06 - My Hair Came Back19:28 - There are Reminders20:02 - Relying on the Data with Confidence21:21 - What is Your Advice to Men?22:58 - Fortunate to Play Volleyball During Chemo23:51 - Feeling Comfortable and Safe 26:09 - Is it a Challenge to Get People to See the Doctor?27:15 - The blessing of family support28:12 - Effects of Chemotherapy28:57 - Timeline to Hermosa Beach 201729:46 - 2017 Hermosa Beach AVP Qualifier 32:49 - Playing Stadium Court34:02 - Reality Check34:27 - 2017 Manhattan Beach AVP Qualifier35:59 - Mentoring Eric Beranek37:19 - Playing with Eric's Energy Levels38:24 - 2018 MBO Top Ten Video Clip40:56 - Different Mindset in Austin42:31 - Work Responsibilities Spiked42:58 - 2018 MBO AVP Qualifier47:14 - Last Match to Get In48:37 - One of My Biggest Moments49:17 - Jason's Compilation of Top 5 Qualifier Matches in Last Decade50:28 - Well of Strength in Overcoming Challenges52:21 - Similarities with Tri Bourne53:30 - Culmination of Playing AVP55:35 - Journey of Athlete to Parenting56:36 - College Athletes and Social Media57:42 - Separation Between Being Parent and Coach59:04 - Taking a Step Back and Broadcasting 1:00:28 - Color Commentary at Long Beach State1:02:30 - Opportunities1:03:22 - Where Do You Go from Here in Your Athletic Journey?1:04:38 - 2018 Labor Day CalCutta1:07:26 - No Wins on Saturday = No Sleep1:08:16 - Something Happened Sunday and We Clicked1:09:18 - Winning and Finding Fulfillment1:12:50 - Do You Have Fun Playing For Fun?1:14:00 - Ran First 10K Super Bowl Sunday1:14:49 - Half Iron Man and California Coastal Classic Bicycle Ride1:15:54 - Set a Goal and Go Achieve It1:17:10 - Comfortable Discomfort with Challenges1:19:20 - Longest Running Event or Distance1:20:55 - Iron Man Challenge1:22:15 - Wisdom to Yourself or the Younger Generation1:23:58 - Be Better1:24:38 - Where Can People Find You?1:26:28 - WIMTS Podcast Closing Links & Where to Find MattArthritis Foundation - DONATE HEREhttps://events.arthritis.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donate.participant&participantID=261153See More from Wendy JoneBroadcasts on ESPN+ Plus for Long Beach Men's Volleyball www.NVAUSA.comwww.VolleyballWorld.TVIG - @themattprosser
