In the historic city of Magdeburg, Germany, there is a “Johnny Cash”-themed country music festival called Nashville Days – complete with corn dogs and cowboy hats. This is one of the fruits of the sister city relationship between Nashville and Magdeburg. Host Jakob Lewis, a Nashville citizen, goes to Magdeburg to see where the rubber meets the road for Sister Cities' idealistic vision to “promote peace one individual, one community at a time.” If you’ve been to Germany, Magdeburg probably isn’t the first city that comes to mind when you to think of cosmopolitan cities. Yet for the past 15 years, Magdeburg has developed a great relationship with its sister city Nashville through the Sister Cities International program. For The Big Pond, Jakob Lewis traces the origins of the sister cities back to the aftermath of World War II as a means to (re)connect former adversaries. Or, as Joel Dark, the Nashville chair of the Nashville-Magdeburg partnership puts it: “The concept is to build a local-to-local relationship so that international relations [are] not reduced to just relationships between governments and their agendas but can be a relationship really between people.” At a time when the US’ general tone for diplomacy has shifted, what does Sister Cities’ idealistic vision of peace really look like? Does it actually make a difference? Is it just a glorified trip club where well-to-do folks can drink wine in another country? Or is it the key to world peace? Listen to find out more. This story was produced in 2018 as part of the The Big Pond series with the Goethe-Institut, and the Year of German American Friendship 2018/2019 under the motto “Wunderbar Together”. Special thanks to Rosie Forrest for editing this story.

How dare she? The “Political Misfits” come in hot today with some strong words for Joe Biden surrogate Hilary Rosen. Rosen tried to explain Martin Luther King Jr. to Sanders surrogate Nina Turner, who was having none of it. But who allowed Biden to take the civil-rights-defender lane? Also in the “more where this came from” category: the coronavirus! K.J. Noh, a scholar, peace activist and contributor to several media organizations, joined the misfits to warn that the US is woefully unprepared. While China was mobilizing every resource to deal with the novel disease, the US was trying to score political points. Now, the US population is going to pay for this leadership gap. And not only in human health terms - prepare to see the US economy take a hit even worse than what China is suffering. Our as-yet-uninfected hosts also had some strong opinions about Maddow’s softball interview with Warren, where the two once again wrung their hands and furrowed their brows over online meanies. Where is that consternation over the millions of Americans living in poverty, the tens of thousands suffering and dying because they can’t access health care? Enough fretting over memes and internet insults. There are real, life and death issues at stake. Top Scot Alan MacLeod, author and member of the Glasgow University Media Group, chimed in on the latest media hit pieces. Sanders’ latest crime is taking part in a sister cities program encouraged by Ronald Reagan during the Cold War to promote human contacts between the hostile great powers. Sanders could just as easily be called a hero for fighting the terrifying military buildup and tension on both sides, but in this xenophobic atmosphere, any Russian outreach, even from decades past, becomes suspect. Are all Peace Corps volunteers soon to be jailed as spies? The gents also get a laugh out of NPR’s assertion that Sputnik and its sister stations are working to elect Sanders, and wonder where is the appetite for media criticism that turns its lens on NPR’s corporate colleagues.

Good morning, RVA! It’s 56 °F, and there’s a pretty good chance of rain throughout the entire day. Temperatures will stay right around 60 °F, though! You take the good, you take the bad…Water coolerLast night, five members of City Council voted against the Mayor’s downtown redevelopment plan aka NoBro aka Navy Hill—NO: Gray, Hilbert, Larson, Lynch, and Trammell; YES: Addison, Robertson, Newbille, and Jones. Technically, the Council voted against unstriking the handful of necessary ordinances that they struck at last week’s Organizational Development committee meeting, but, you get the gist. It was a long Council meeting, a historic night (I think), and I have a lot of thoughts. But, before diving in, Roberto Roldan at VPM has a recap that includes a nice timeline of the last couple dozen months. OK!First, whoa! I don’t think I ever, not even a single time, really expected this project to fail. It just seemed too big, have too much power and money behind it, and address too many of the City’s actual needs. I figured it’d tumble forward, like a big katamari clumping up supporters and amendments, until it ultimately splattered across the finish line. In Richmond, “I guess it’s either this or do nothing, and we already have nothing” has typically been a powerful argument. Turns out, not so anymore!Second, while the folks in charge made a bunch of missteps along the way that didn’t do themselves any favors, I don’t think we’d be where we are without the work of Richmond For All. It’s a very impressive thing to run a successful grassroots organizing campaign against a project supported by the City, developers, and one of the state’s most powerful people. I’m excited to see where next they decide to deploy their new-found power!Third, think what you want about this particular downtown project, the community benefits NoBro attempted to address are real issues facing, and still facing, the City—affordable housing, public transit, safe pedestrian and bike infrastructure, jobs, disinvestment in Black communities, school funding, environmental sustainability—not to mention a concrete wasteland north of Broad Street. None of those priorities need be tied to a downtown arena, and Council (plus the Mayor) can start to address those priorities this very budget cycle with progressive legislation and a thoughtful budget. As citizens, we can’t let Council kill this particular project and not also hold our elected legislators accountable for making real changes in the lives of Richmonders—it’s their job, they have the authority, they just need to write the legislation and approve the budget.On the Administration side of things, here’s the Mayor’s immediate response: “It saddens me that Richmonders won’t benefit from the housing, jobs and economic empowerment this project would bring — and I’m disappointed that council did not follow through on the process they laid out to review and evaluate this transformative project for our city — but I’m resolved to wake up tomorrow and keep working to move our city forward." More interesting, I think, is how he will respond in this year’s budget and how this process impacts his ability/motivation to get bold, progressive things done.Dang, y’all! What a night, and I am thankful that we can finally move on and start talking about literally anything else!Sarah Vogelsong at the Virginia Mercury continues to keep me up to date on the Virginia Clean Economy Act as it works its way through the General Assembly. Although, according to Vogelsong, a schism among Democrats may prevent the bill from passing. I’m dumb about state-level stuff, but good on the holdouts who recognize the impending climate emergency and want more out of the New Democratic Majority. Del. Samirah, who championed the middle density bills, puts it this way, “We’ve already missed our window for half-measures and small ideas.” Agreed.I’m kind of into this Virginia Local Government Exchange Program, modeled on the Sister Cities program, which the Governor announced last week. However, instead of focusing on “tourism, natural and cultural assets, and economic development strategies,” what if the program focused on housing, transportation, health, and sustainability? If we nail the latter set of things, the former should come a bit easier, right?Via /r/rva, check out this rad video of VCU, Monroe Park, and surrounding areas from 1977! Did they even have video back then?? I guess so!Reminder! Tonight, New Hampshire will hold their 2020 presidential primary. Next up: Nevada cacusues on the 22nd followed by the South Carolina primary on the 29th.This morning’s longreadSpreading Slow IdeasHere’s a great story about unlocking healthier outcomes for pregnant women and infants. But! It’s also a story, I think, about how to go about doing community engagement. Which, dang, is the perfect thing to read after last night’s City Council meeting.So what were the key differences? First, one combatted a visible and immediate problem (pain); the other combatted an invisible problem (germs) whose effects wouldn’t be manifest until well after the operation. Second, although both made life better for patients, only one made life better for doctors. Anesthesia changed surgery from a brutal, time-pressured assault on a shrieking patient to a quiet, considered procedure. Listerism, by contrast, required the operator to work in a shower of carbolic acid. Even low dilutions burned the surgeons’ hands. You can imagine why Lister’s crusade might have been a tough sell. This has been the pattern of many important but stalled ideas. They attack problems that are big but, to most people, invisible; and making them work can be tedious, if not outright painful. The global destruction wrought by a warming climate, the health damage from our over-sugared modern diet, the economic and social disaster of our trillion dollars in unpaid student debt—these things worsen imperceptibly every day. Meanwhile, the carbolic-acid remedies to them, all requiring individual sacrifice of one kind or another, struggle to get anywhere.If you’d like your longread to show up here, go chip in a couple bucks on the ol’ Patreon.

Caroline Boland and Gary Curran together run the Dingle Peninsula Tourism Alliance, located on the southern coast of Ireland. Gary serves as chairperson of the alliance, and Caroline is a marketing consultant for DPTA. Gary grew up on the peninsula and now runs Greenmount House, a 4-star rated bed and breakfast in Dingle. Caroline visited some years ago and knew this beautiful place was where she wanted to live. Together, Gary and Caroline have been traveling in Massachusetts and New York on behalf of the DPTA. Coincidentally, both Gary and Caroline graduated from the Shannon College of Hotel Management in Galway, Ireland. On this episode of Destination on the Left, I have a conversation that will make you want to pack your bags immediately and head for the southern coast of Ireland. I talk with Caroline and Gary about the challenges of marketing on a limited budget and the exciting opportunities for collaboration that come out of that kind of necessity.  What You Will Learn: Why the Dingle peninsula is renowned as one of the most beautiful places on earth Strategies for extending your season How to market your region on a small budget The difference between marketing yourself as a destination or as an attraction Benefits of getting your message out directly to the consumer How to develop meaningful sister city relationships Beautiful Landscape is Just the Beginning Whatever brings people to your destination is often just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. How do you help visitors explore all your destination has to offer? In Ireland’s Dingle peninsula, it starts with the incredible natural beauty. From there, the people, the food, the hectic festival schedule (they have a LOT of festivals) can all be a big draw. We talk about how there is a different target market for different seasons, and how to connect with people who will enjoy the winter or shoulder season, and those who want to be there in the summer. Sister Cities and Genuine Relationships As Caroline points out, “You don’t have to have money to make a new friend. You just have to be genuine and, and just welcoming and just want to spend time, share a bit, and build a relationship.” That’s how they approached their relationship with sister city, West Springfield in Massachusetts. How can you build a mutually beneficial relationship, so it’s not just a plaque on the side of the road, and now you’re a sister city? There is some great conversation around making that happen.

In this episode of Unsung Dreamers, we were lucky enough to have the ever-so-amazing duo known as The Creek Rocks! Mark Bilyeu and Cindy Woolf were destined to be together to form this wonderful and amazing musical 'team'... well.... and to get married too, of course!  Right from the beginning, we discuss their recent trip to Isesaki, Japan. Where they traveled to represent the city of Springfield, MO as part of the Sister Cities program of art, culture and music. Mark is from a very musical family, which explains how later in his musical journey he formed the band Big Smith, who recorded records, toured all over, wrote songs and spent years entertaining all of us fine folks right here in the Ozarks. Cindy is no stranger to music either. She's been writing and performing her original music for years. Both having tons of experience writing songs, and finding themselves involved in the same kind of music and experiences... it must have only been fate that brought them together to become The Creek Rocks! Sit back and enjoy some great stories about how all this came about. From their early pickin' and grinnin' front porch guitar pulls, to the high school 'punk rock' bands, to performing to a packed house at The Gillioz Theater for their CD release party! The Creek Rocks!!... right here on The Unsung Dreamers! Go catch one of their shows. Go download their music. Go tell em that you heard of them right here!

Their previous album 'No Closer To Heaven' had some of the best songs released in that year with some hard hitting and emotionally impactful lyrics. Does the band follow suite with this new release?

“My mission is to be a catalyst for positive, systemic change in the community” – Tom Raffa Tom Raffa admits he’s is a very unusual CEO. He “winged” his way into accounting to pay for college and has built a firm (and a legacy) that focuses more on impact than on profit.  30+ years later Raffa still contributes 10% (almost $5m last year) in financial and pro-bono services to non-profits and allows *unlimited paid* community service time to any employee!  When health insurance premiums skyrocketed, Tom not only kept benefits the same for employees, he invested heavily in wellness programs to make sure his staff is healthy, happy and engaged.  Tom is an amazing visionary, entrepreneur and philanthropist and I know you’ll enjoy this interview as much as I did! What you’ll learn: How one school counselor's recognition of Tom's talent planted a seed for him to attend college Fascinating story how Tom stumbled into accounting (by "slightly" fibbing on his resume) to be able to pay for college and “winged it” to success How Tom built his accounting firm on principles of helping the community (and the money would follow) How to instill the philanthropic mindset into the culture of an organization What Tom learned from his non-profit clients about mission focus What non profits can learn from businesses and social ventures about self-sufficiency, sustainability and marketing How social ventures he admires are blending the best of both worlds - business and non-profit models - to create greater impact while staying profitable Strategies for organizations to maximize their resources Tom’s philosophy on how organizations can create opportunities for collaboration / eliminate need to compete for resources How to embrace experimentation and even failure as a leader And so much more!

During his more than 35- year career, Tom has provided accounting, auditing, tax services and business consulting to the nonprofit sector, conducting studies on management structure, internal and operational controls, and management information systems. Many Raffa clients have also enlisted Tom’s assistance in assembling compensation and fringe benefits packages, executive compensation and retirement plans, venture capital/fundraising efforts, investment policies, financial projections, indirect cost proposals and matters of governance. To serve Raffa’s clients more fully, Tom founded three affiliate organizations, Raffa Financial Services, Inc. (RFSI), Raffa Social Capital Advisors (RSCA) and Raffa Wealth Management (RWM). RFSI, formed in 1999, provides insurance and investment products and services, while RWM, formed in 2005, provides investment consulting and financial planning to private foundations and high-wealth individuals who support the nonprofit sector. RSCA was formed in 2016, to accelerate and scale those groups and individuals with solid social enterprises programs that could change the world.

Inside Public Accounting (IPA) and Accounting Today magazine continuously name Raffa as one of the “Top 100 Accounting Firms” in the nation. IPA’s Top 100 and IPA’s National Benchmarking Report are the industry’s longest-running and most up-to-date analysis and ranking of the nation’s largest accounting firms. A recent report recognized Raffa as its “Best of the Best,” which honors only 50 firms from across the country for their overall superior performance on more than 70 criteria. Recently, IPA recognized Raffa as the only firm in the country whose leadership embraces its international and multi-cultural staff in an article entitled, “One IPA 100 Firm Defies Diversity Statistics: 11 of 17 Partners Are Women.” This article named Raffa as the only firm in the top 100 that is women-owned making it the largest CPA firm in the US that is women-owned. It is also one of the only a few CPA firms that is a certified B Corporation.

Who would have thought we'd be seeing "I Love Lucy" on our timelines for our favorite TV show #Castle? No, it's not a Beckett Replacement. But definitely is giving the "Clark Kent"-ish looking Rick some "food for thought" on his own musings. Hopefully, you watched last night's episode of Castle Season 8, "PhDead" 803 - Written by Chad Gomez Creasey and Directed by Executive Producer Rob Bowman and YOU can join us in tonight's STR Round Table. Season 8 has been some-what of a polarizing Castle Season to many fans and some are still wrapping our minds around the Character-Shake-Ups we’ve “experienced” with them and yet, VERY curious as to where the new Show Runners, Winter/Haley, are taking us all in this new direction for our favorites.            Here are Elena’s questions for you to review before tonight's discussion begins: http://stanatalkradio.com/str-round-table/2015-str-round-table-archive/str-223-100615-s8e03-phdead-recap/   Photo copyright/credit: Castle "PhDead", Disney/ABC/ABC Studios

Dan Clark calls this show "Muscatine Memories of the Berlin Wall and Its Fall." His guests are Kristine Conlon and Ingrid Rowe of Muscatine Sister Cities Association. Kristine is a Muscatine native and German-language teacher who led several school trips to Germany. Ingrid is an East German native who fled to the West with her parents when she was 12, shortly before the border closed. She is now a Muscatine resident and US citizen. Fifteen years after the fall of the wall, on December 2, 2004, Muscatine gained a sister city in the former (East) German Democratic Republic. Ludwigslust is the capital of a district between Berlin and Hamburg. Ingrid and Kristine share memories of Germany and tell about plans for a Sister Cities trip there scheduled for May 2010. NOTE: For some reason, only the last five minutes of the show was recorded.

This week, we'll look at sister cities. Not in any formal sense but closely related nonetheless. We have four bands and four cities whose cultural and artistic proximity could just as easily be one. They are Mavro, Chill Factor-5, Tricky and Bubblelawn.
