All the greats have a routine. Before every match, Rafael Nadal situates his socks so they're exactly the same height, no more than 15 cm high, and the sponsor's logo is parallel to the ground. John Legend eats half a rotisserie chicken before every show. (Hey, whatever works!)  Before going onstage, Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington kisses a crucifix three times, eats three Haribo gummy bears, and takes (yep) three sips of water. Superstition or not, athletes, artists, and leaders of all walks have found unique ways to get in the zone. Helping yourself into a place where you feel confident and ready to tackle the task in front of you? I'll cosign that, every time! That's why in this episode, I'm talking about the different routines that I've developed over the years that help me go live on video with confidence, regardless of how I feel. Because I'll be honest, being on video has NEVER been in my comfort zone... it still isn't. But after years of practice, I've found a few foolproof rituals to get me in the zone and help me deliver content on video that I feel really great about (even if I didn't feel like pressing the GO LIVE button.) But here's the kicker! Not all live video is created equally. So in this episode, I'm sharing what I do before Facebook Lives, live Q&As, and my masterclasses to prepare for the unique pressures of different styles of live video. You'll walk away with specific examples and inspiration for your own pre-video routines so you can show up more readily for your audience, feel more confident, and hit your live-video stride much sooner. You can leverage live video in your business, even if the idea makes you break out in hives. You owe it to your audience to share what you have for them...and after you've gone live a time or two, I think you'll realize this whole live video thing isn't as scary as we make it out to be. Here's a glance at this episode... [03:38] You need an easy setup. Keep your equipment and location simple. [05:58] It's a lot easier when you do your video consistently. Doing video on a regular basis can make it become just a part of how you do business.  [07:22] Create your own routine! I have three routines for three different types of videos.  [17:52] Here are 3 steps you can use to create confidence on video! 1. Set things up, like your location and equipment, so video is easy. 2. Identify the types of videos you are going to do and create a routine for each of them. 3. Do video more often so it's not a novelty -- I suggest at least once a week. Rate, Review, & Follow on Apple Podcasts "I love Amy and Online Marketing Made Easy."

Anyone who's done serious renovation on an older home, ripping down lath and plaster, wrestling with stubborn two by fours and prying up floorboards, has probably harbored the fantasy of finding some kind of long-hidden treasure. Civil war medals, a moth-eaten bag of precious coins, possibly a secret diary full of scandalous confessions. Unfortunately, what is often discovered are crumbling foundations, rotted timbers and plumbing issues, if not a desiccated mouse or two. But sometimes a do-it-yourself-er finds a shoe. Author Ron Davis and WPR producer Brad Kolberg bring us the story.

If we had no care for the dead, Augustine noted, we would not be in the habit of praying for them. Yet pre-Christian rites for the deceased retained such a strong hold on the superstitious imagination that a liturgical commemoration was not observed until the early Middle Ages, when monastic communities began to mark an annual day of prayer for the departed members. In the middle of the 11th century, Saint Odilo, abbot of Cluny, France, decreed that all Cluniac monasteries offer special prayers and sing the Office for the Dead on November 2, the day after the feast of All Saints. The custom spread from Cluny and was finally adopted throughout the Roman Church. The theological underpinning of the feast is the acknowledgment of human frailty. Since few people achieve perfection in this life but, rather, go to the grave still scarred with traces of sinfulness, some period of purification seems necessary before a soul comes face-to-face with God. The Council of Trent affirmed this purgatory state and insisted that the prayers of the living can speed the process of purification.Superstition easily clung to the observance. Medieval popular belief held that the souls in purgatory could appear on this day in the form of witches, toads or will-o

Giving examples, such as the Kathua rape case, she says, “Superstitions are not about lack of education. It's about unawareness and embedded fear. It's not recognised, it's normalised.”Vaibhav talks about his report on “targeted” killings in Kashmir. “These are specific to minorities,” he says, explaining the prevailing fear in the valley and how it's “more terrifying with the kind of media portrayal it is getting”.This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn't, and what shouldn't have.Tune in.RecommendationsShrishti A Passage NorthVaibhavHaiderBasantRitual KillingsChasing Bollywood dreams: How Noida's Film City became a media hub See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Hello Truth-Seekers and welcome to another episode of Truth Wanted. This week ExXtian Erin is joined by Trevor Poelman of the Belief it or Not podcast.Liam is our first caller, and wants to talk about premonitions that he's noticed since deconverting. Erin points out that coincidence and the human tendency to see patterns are more likely than clairvoyance. Pareidolia is a thing and Liam seems to agree. Stay curious, friend!Next up is Queer Atheist from Illinois, who recently had his dirty, dirty chakra cleaned at work. He's also been turned down for dates because of his astrological sign, and wants our hosts to opine about how to gently push back on such nonsense. Liam points out that promoting personal beliefs in the workplace is inappropriate, whether it be theology or astrology. No -ologies allowed folks! Erin offers tips on how to politely set boundaries, and our caller makes clear that a clean carpet is better than a clean chakra.Keeping the woo theme going is Kennita, who's been offered Reiki massage by someone close to her, and while she appreciates the massage, the magic crystals are a bridge too far. How best to be honest? Erin points out that touch therapy and human contact is valuable and doesn't rely on discredited claims. Both hosts agree that the placebo effect of pseudoscience is harmless until folks prefer it to actual medical care!David from WA wants to know whether our hosts think morality is subjective or objective. Erin thinks goals are key to determining what's right and wrong, and like a typical Canadian, Trevor just likes being nice to people. Our spidey senses go off when anyone brings up Adolf Hitler and slavery in a conversation about morality, and our hosts quickly identify and deconstruct a weak apologist argument for why we ought to listen to an invisible sky daddy.That's our show this week!

Synopsis On today's date in 1930,  Howard Hanson led the premiere performance of the full orchestral version of William Grant Still's symphonic poem, “Africa” at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. Still had originally conceived “Africa” as a chamber work, dedicated to and premiered by the great French flutist Georges Barrère earlier that same year. In a letter to Barrère, Still said that his new work depicted “the Africa of my imagination,” explaining “An American Negro has formed a concept of the land of his ancestors based largely on its folklore, and influenced by his contact with American civilization. He beholds in his mind's eye not the Africa of reality, but an Africa mirrored in fancy, and radiantly ideal.” That said, the Africa of Still's imagination included not only serene, pastorale moments, but also – according to Still's wife – the surfacing of “unspoken fears and lurking terrors.” In its revised full symphonic version, Still's “Africa” proved successful recalls the exotic colors of Rimksy-Korsakov's reimagined pagan Russia, and as an orchestral showpiece proved successful in subsequent performances in Europe, but, for some reason known only to Still himself, his tone poem “Africa” remained unpublished during his lifetime.

In 1904, adventure novelist H. Rider Haggard awoke from a dream with the conviction that his daughter's dog was dying. He dismissed the impression as a nightmare, but the events that followed seemed to give it a grim significance. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll describe Haggard's strange experience, which briefly made headlines around the world. We'll also consider Alexa's expectations and puzzle over a college's name change. Intro: Marshall Bean got himself drafted by reversing his name. An air traveler may jump into tomorrow without passing midnight. "Bob, although he belonged to my daughter, who bought him three years ago, was a great friend of mine, but I cannot say that my soul was bound up in him," Haggard wrote. "He was a very intelligent animal, and generally accompanied me in my walks about the farm, and almost invariably came to say good morning to me."
