Should you use artificial intelligence to lead your team? This question may seem straight out of science fiction, but it's actually a burning question that top companies are asking around the globe today. I host IBM's first Global Chief AI Officer, Seth Dobrin, on the show, and he shares three steps that every leader should take to create an AI strategy. In his role, Seth leads IBM's corporate AI strategy and is responsible for connecting the development and governance of AI across IBM's business units with a systemic creation of business value. The commitment to human-centered AI prompted Seth to create a new methodology that helps companies develop AI strategies built on trust, providing business outcomes that are more fair, more accurate, and focused on real humans' needs. This methodology has helped elevate AI from being simply a tool used to make processes more efficient to an overarching catalyst of business transformation. Seth was recognized as AI Innovator of the Year 2021 at the AIconics Awards and named one of Corinium's Top 100 Leaders in Data & Analytics 2022. He has his undergraduate degree in Microbiology and a PhD in Molecular and Cellular biology from Arizona State University. LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sdobrin Company Link: https://www.ibm.com What You'll Discover in this Episode: The important difference between AI and Machine Learning. If you should be worried about being “AI'ed” out of a job and what to do about it. Three steps to build an AI strategy for your team. Surprising places you'd never expect AI. The science fiction that inspired him as a kid. The one course he requires his kids to take (and why we should all take it ourselves). Why you should consider applying for a job if you're only 70% qualified. How AI can help leaders declare their vision (and it's limitations). The guiding principle for how leaders should use AI. Helpful gadgets for leaders. Quotes: “AI won't replace managers and leaders, but managers and leaders who use AI will.” ----- Connect with the Host, #1 bestselling author Ben Fanning https://www.benfanning.com/speaker/ (Speaking and Training inquires) https://followbenonyoutube.com (Subscribe to my Youtube channel) https://www.linkedin.com/in/benfanning/ (LinkedIn) https://www.instagram.com/benfanning1/ (Instagram) https://twitter.com/BenFanning1 (Twitter)

Not to worry folks, none of them are surnamed Voorhees.Zach Shedd speaks with Dan about creating secular communities, and our first caller asks the hosts how to approach conversations with a budding atheist. Dan recommends Street Epistemology, and agrees with Zach's point that setting boundaries is important. We hit up our audience for some Q&A. Some strange Johnny guy asks Dan if he prefers the live show format to the remote, and Jamal asks what was most difficult about Dan's deconversion process.Our next guest is John Dye, he studies volcanoes, and erupts into the background of the SSA and why he joined. Needs more magma.An audience member suspects that her child may be faking faith to further their romantic pursuits. Neither Dan nor John recommend it, and John is very clear that he will not be dating any crystal cuties. Finally, Madison shares a story about his first date experience with a spiritualist.After a quick chat with John about his deconversion, Paul in the audience asks how to get involved with the secular movement. A former Muslim asks how to find community after leaving religion, and finally Donovan asks how the SSA approaches activism.We take a call from Michael, who asks our hosts for their perspective on the recent odious activities of the Supreme Court. Surprising zero people across the globe, our hosts are champions of women's bodily autonomy. This is why activism is so important!Back to our audience, Zoe encourages locals to show up for the Bans off our Bodies protest, and Jamal asks how to promote positive atheism. Cody Valdez joins us on stage, and shares his experiences as a newcomer to the atheist movement. Next we'll talk to Larry, who has a grandson starting at U of T, and asks Cody how he can get involved! The power of SSA grows!Shifting back to our audience emcee, Johnny talks to another SSA member who expresses his gratitude for the exposure today. We're happy to do it!

Tanjil calls in and asks about coming out as an atheist to family. Our hosts recommend kindness and discretion, and an audience member offers his perspective.Hal has an argument from incredulity that will shock and amaze. Jk, no it won't. Dan and Cody make short work of this, but Hal seems nice.Special guests Christy Powell and Jim Barrows join the conversation with some banter before we wrap up, thanks for watching!

Louisiana prolife bill, Rand Paul, Baby Formula, and guns …and more on today’s CrossPolitic Daily News Brief. My name is Toby Sumpter and today is Friday, May 6, 2022. We are just days away from the last stop of our CrossPolitic Liberty Tour in Phoenix, Arizona. I would love to meet you in person in Phoenix, on May 19th. I will be joined by Chocolate Knox, the Gabe Rench the Water Boy, Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church, and Political analyst Delano Squires, who’s made appearances on the Blaze, and the Tucker Carlson show. Tickets are only $20, and we’ll be talking about the Five Stones of True Liberty. Sign up now at crosspolitic.com/libertytour. https://www.dailywire.com/news/republican-led-louisiana-house-fails-to-pass-bill-abolishing-abortion Ben Zeisloft at the DailyWire reports: Members of the Louisiana House of Representatives failed to pass a bill that would have abolished abortion by applying homicide laws to women who procure the procedure. The Abolition of Abortion in Louisiana Act (HB813) — which has gained national and international media attention — recognizes “the right to life and equal protection of the laws to all unborn children from the moment of fertilization by protecting them by the same laws protecting other human beings.” Accordingly, it applied state laws about homicide to children in the womb. Last week, lawmakers on the Louisiana House’s criminal justice committee approved the bill by a 7 to 2 vote. However, after legislators approved an amendment on Thursday stating that “the pregnant female shall not be held responsible for the criminal consequences” of seeking an abortion by a 65 to 26 vote, State Rep. Danny McCormick — the Republican who sponsored HB813 — asked to pull the bill from the House floor. Louisiana Right to Life announced its opposition to HB813 ahead of the House vote because it applied criminal penalties to mothers who procure abortion. Likewise, Governor John Bel Edwards (D-LA) — remarking that his “Catholic Christian faith” teaches him to be pro-life — followed suit in opposing the legislation. “I felt I had to join my voice to the chorus of pro-life organizations against HB813,” he said in a statement. Pro-life activist Abby Johnson recently condemned Louisiana Right to Life for opposing HB813. “Either the preborn are fully human or they aren’t,” she saidon Twitter. “When abortion is illegal, people must pay the penalty for killing their children. These children deserve justice.” Replying to Edwards’ opposition to the bill, Johnson said, “Well, well, well. Look how many pro-aborts you have made happy!!” Brian Gunter — the senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Livingston, Louisiana, who was instrumental in organizing other Christians in the state to support the legislation — told The Daily Wire that Edwards “believes there are no circumstances under which a woman should be held accountable if she knowingly and intentionally kills her preborn child.” “HB813 protects a woman who is coerced into an abortion and prosecutes the person who forces her to have an abortion,” he said of the bill in its original form. “If Governor Edwards believes the preborn child is just as much a person as the born child, then it is absurd for him to suggest that the preborn child should be discriminated against and denied equal protection under law. No one should be allowed to murder preborn children without consequences.” Last week, Gunter remarked to The Daily Wire that Louisiana’s current pro-life trigger law — the “The Human Life Protection Act” — only penalizes abortionists with $1,000 fines, even though animal cruelty is fined at up to $25,000 in Louisiana. https://thehill.com/news/senate/3486654-rand-paul-objection-delays-40-billion-ukraine-aid-package/ Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) hit the brakes Thursday on bipartisan hopes that the Senate could quickly pass nearly $40 billion in Ukraine aid before leaving town for the week. Paul objected to a deal offered by Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer(D-N.Y.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that would have set up votes on Thursday afternoon on the funding and on an amendment from Paul, who wanted to include language in the bill to expand an Afghanistan inspector general role to include oversight of the Ukraine funds. Paul blocked the votes because he wants his language inserted into the text of the bill instead of having to take his chance with an amendment vote, which could be blocked. The stalemate will delay the Senate’s passage of the Ukraine package until at least next week, and potentially beyond. “There is now only one thing holding us back, the junior senator from Kentucky is preventing swift passage of Ukraine aid because he wants to add, at the last minute, his own changes directly into the bill … He is not even asking for an amendment. He is simply saying my way or the highway,” Schumer said. “Ukraine is not asking us to fight this war. They’re only asking for the resources they need to defend themselves against this deranged invasion, and they need help right now,” McConnell said. Paul, however, warned about the pace of spending, arguing that “we cannot save Ukraine by dooming the U.S. economy.” “Americans are feeling the pain [from inflation] and Congress seems intent only on adding to that pain by shoveling more money out the door as fast as they can,” Paul said. Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians. Their mission is to build Kingdom culture in the workplace by equipping their students in a Trinitarian worldview and vocational competencies. Their low-cost full-time program offers integrative course modules, internships, and mentoring so their students can finish debt-free with vocational preparation, a robust faith, and financial potential to build strong godly families and homes rooted in their communities and churches long-term. Visit their website at www.cornerstonework.org to find out more about enrolling. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2022/05/baby-formula-shortage-abbott-recall/629828/ Derek Thompson at The Atlantic: America’s baby-formula shortage has gone from curious inconvenience to full-blown national crisis. In many states, including Texas and Tennessee, more than half of formula is sold out in stores. Nationwide, 40 percent of formula is out of stock—a twentyfold increase since the first half of 2021. As parents have started to stockpile formula, retailers such as Walgreens, CVS, and Target have all moved to limit purchases. Three factors are driving the U.S. baby-formula shortage: bacteria, a virus, and a trade policy. First, the bacteria. After the recent deaths of at least two infants from a rare infection, the Food and Drug Administration investigated Abbott, a major producer of infant formula, and discovered traces of the pathogen Cronobacter sakazakii in a Michigan plant. As a result, the FDA recalled several brands of formula, and parents were advised to not buy or use some formula tied to the plant. That brings us to the second cause: the virus. The pandemic has snarled all sorts of supply chains, but I can’t think of a market it’s yanked around more than infant formula. “During the spring of 2020, formula sales rocketed upwards as people stockpiled formula just like they stockpiled toilet paper,” Lyman Stone, the director of research at the consulting firm Demographic Intelligence, told me. Then, as “families worked through their stockpiles, sales fell a lot. This oscillation made planning for production extremely difficult. It was complicated to get an idea of the actual market size.” Meanwhile, Stone’s research has found that an uptick in births in early 2022 has corresponded with a “very dramatic decline in rates of breastfeeding” among new mothers, which pushed up demand for formula once again. In brief: Demand for formula surged as parents hoarded in 2020; then demand fell, leading suppliers to cut back production through 2021; and now, with more new mothers demanding more formula in 2022, orders are surging faster than supply is recovering. Finally, the third factor: America’s regulatory and trade policy. And while that might not sound as interesting to most people as bacteria and viruses, it might be the most important part of the story. FDA regulation of formula is so stringent that most of the stuff that comes out of Europe is illegal to buy here due to technicalities like labeling requirements. Nevertheless, one study found that many European formulas meet the FDA nutritional guidelines—and, in some ways, might even be better than American formula, because the European Union bans certain sugars, such as corn syrup, and requires formulas to have a higher share of lactose. Some parents who don’t care about the FDA’s imprimatur try to circumvent regulations by ordering formula from Europe through third-party vendors. But U.S. customs agents have been known to seize shipments at the border. U.S. policy also restricts the importation of formula that does meet FDA requirements. At high volumes, the tax on formula imports can exceed 17 percent. And under President Donald Trump, the U.S. entered into a new North American trade agreement that actively discourages formula imports from our largest trading partner, Canada. America’s formula policy warps the industry in one more way. The Department of Agriculture has a special group called WIC—short for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children—that provides a variety of services to pregnant and breastfeeding women and their young children. It is also the largest purchaser of infant formula in the United States, awarding contracts to a small number of approved formula companies. As a result, the U.S. baby formula industry is minuscule, by design. A 2011 analysis by USDA reported that three companies accounted for practically all U.S. formula sales: Abbott, Mead Johnson, and Gerber. Look, it can be a real blessing to have baby formula for any number of legitimate reasons, but in general, there’s a God-given supply of baby formula ordinarily available through breast milk. Remember, we slaughter babies by the millions through abortion. This shouldn’t be a crisis. If women embraced motherhood, if men embraced fatherhood, if sex was reserved for the covenant of marriage, and if our culture celebrated the motherhood as the highest calling of a woman, sure it would be a blessing to have alternative nutrition in unusual circumstances, but if women were not so concerned about getting back to work, we wouldn’t be in this situation. Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge DNB: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets will be available starting in the middle of March.

The court agreed in a 2-1 decision with the argument of the Firearms Policy Coalition, which brought the case challenging the law that took effect last July, saying it infringed on the Second Amendment rights of adults between the ages of 18 and 20… "America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our Revolutionary Army," Judge Ryan Nelson wrote for the appeals court. “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.” The Psalm of the Day: Psalm 72 https://open.spotify.com/track/3tJNqzPNBKzIag3yQnLqG0?si=6b841d37db2141ba 0:00-0:43 Amen!

Some parents who don’t care about the FDA’s imprimatur try to circumvent regulations by ordering formula from Europe through third-party vendors. But U.S. customs agents have been known to seize shipments at the border. U.S. policy also restricts the importation of formula that does meet FDA requirements. At high volumes, the tax on formula imports can exceed 17 percent. And under President Donald Trump, the U.S. entered into a new North American trade agreement that actively discourages formula imports from our largest trading partner, Canada. America’s formula policy warps the industry in one more way. The Department of Agriculture has a special group called WIC—short for Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children—that provides a variety of services to pregnant and breastfeeding women and their young children. It is also the largest purchaser of infant formula in the United States, awarding contracts to a small number of approved formula companies. As a result, the U.S. baby formula industry is minuscule, by design. A 2011 analysis by USDA reported that three companies accounted for practically all U.S. formula sales: Abbott, Mead Johnson, and Gerber. Look, it can be a real blessing to have baby formula for any number of legitimate reasons, but in general, there’s a God-given supply of baby formula ordinarily available through breast milk. Remember, we slaughter babies by the millions through abortion. This shouldn’t be a crisis. If women embraced motherhood, if men embraced fatherhood, if sex was reserved for the covenant of marriage, and if our culture celebrated the motherhood as the highest calling of a woman, sure it would be a blessing to have alternative nutrition in unusual circumstances, but if women were not so concerned about getting back to work, we wouldn’t be in this situation. Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge DNB: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more. Early bird tickets will be available starting in the middle of March. Go to FLFNetwork.com and click on “Come to the Conference.” https://notthebee.com/article/a-federal-court-just-ruled-that-californias-under-21-prohibition-on-semiautomatic-firearms-is-unconstitutional-and-the-court-cited-the-revolutionary-war-as-precedent- California's ban on semiautomatic weapons sales to adults under 21 was ruled unconstitutional by a federal appeals court on Wednesday... The court agreed in a 2-1 decision with the argument of the Firearms Policy Coalition, which brought the case challenging the law that took effect last July, saying it infringed on the Second Amendment rights of adults between the ages of 18 and 20… "America would not exist without the heroism of the young adults who fought and died in our Revolutionary Army," Judge Ryan Nelson wrote for the appeals court. “Today we reaffirm that our Constitution still protects the right that enabled their sacrifice: the right of young adults to keep and bear arms.” The Psalm of the Day: Psalm 72 https://open.spotify.com/track/3tJNqzPNBKzIag3yQnLqG0?si=6b841d37db2141ba 0:00-0:43 Amen!

Welcome to the mini series - 4 Pillars of Vibrant Health! Based on my book Food Freedom: Stop Hiding + Uncover Who You're Meant to Be. These four pillars are the most critical when it comes to wellbeing. Health can be confusing, and my goal is to simplify wellbeing to something we can easily self-assess, identify, and continue to pursue vibrant health in our own lives based on what we need, not what someone else decides for us. We're also going to explore the spiritual principles behind each of these practical health components. After all we are three-part beings and to ignore any one will lead to imbalances. In the church community, rarely is health addressed, and conversely the most knowledgeable health experts fall short without addressing spiritual roots. You'll finish each episode with a greater understanding of practical ways you can pursue vitality in your own health status and also how to connect to Jesus in a deeper way.

Hi, this is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Thursday, May 12th, 2022. Have you guys signed up for our CrossPolitic Liberty Tour show in Phoenix Arizona? We’re a week away at this point! We’ll be joined by Political Analyst, Delano Squires, who’s made appearances on The Tucker Carlson Show, and Jason Whitlock, you get the idea, he knows his stuff, and Pastor and friend of the show, Pastor Jeff Durbin of Apologia Church. The show takes place May 19th, and tickets are only $20! So sign up right now at crosspolitic.com/libertytour. So, as Pastor Toby mentioned in his News Brief yesterday, in the wake of the Supreme Court Opinions appearing to dismantle Roe V. Wade, protests erupted in Washington D.C. outside of Supreme Court justices homes… I’m sure you’ve seen the disturbing videos… well now the tables have turned, as Pro-abortion activists are protesting outside Nancy Pelosi's house accusing her of being 'complicit' in destroying abortion rights. https://www.theblaze.com/news/abortion-pelosi-home-protest-abortion#toggle-gdpr Pro-abortion activists turned their vitriol on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and blamed her and the Democratic leadership for the expected overturn of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. A small group of protesters demonstrated outside Pelosi's palatial mansion in San Francisco, California, on Tuesday. Video on social media showed a leader of the group vocalizing their fury… https://twitter.com/i/status/1524194201948278786 - Play whole video Boooo…. Boy those seven protesters were giving it their all there! The protest appeared to be organized by a far-left pro-abortion group called "Ruth Sent Us" that demanded Pelosi investigate the Supreme Court justices in order to "save" abortion. They accused her of being "careless and cowardly" in her leadership and blamed her for not doing enough to prevent Brett Kavanaugh from being nominated to the Supreme Court. The accusations against Pelosi paralleled those made against President Joe Biden by many on social media who accused him of not doing enough to protect abortion rights. Left-wing protesters have also targeted the homes of several members of the Supreme Court for protests, including those of Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, meanwhile called on other Democrats to pass laws and file lawsuits at the state level to protect abortion ahead of the Roe. v. Wade decision expected to be made by the Supreme Court in several months. This is not the first time Pelosi's home has been a targeted by left-wing protesters. In Jan. 2021, protesters vandalized her home with graffiti and left a severed pig's head on her sidewalk. Well isn’t that lovely? I’m sure that Nancy will spin a fine yarn about the Roe V Wade situation… Now, I have a question for you… Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians.

FDA Commissioner Claims ‘Misinformation’ Is Now America’s Leading Cause Of Death https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/robert-spencer/2022/05/10/fda-commissioner-claims-misinformation-is-now-americas-leading-cause-of-death-n1596756 According to PJ Media, The Leftist establishment is waging all-out war against the freedom of speech under the guise of combating what it claims is “misinformation” and “disinformation.” Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton warned us against the supposedly rapidly spreading scourge of “disinformation,” and just days later, Biden’s Homeland Security Department unveiled its sinister Disinformation Governance Board, with an ill-defined and shifting scope of responsibilities. The Board, however, could be just the beginning. On Sirius XM’s Doctor Radio Reports Friday, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Robert Califf said, “I have been telling Congress that misinformation is the leading cause of death.” Well then, by all means, we must outlaw it immediately! On CNN Saturday, Califf doubled down, again warning against “misinformation” in such apocalyptic terms that he appeared to be signaling that Biden’s handlers are working on still more speech restrictions. https://edition.cnn.com/videos/health/2022/05/07/fda-robert-califf-intv-misinformation-death-sot-vpx.cnn As you heard there, when he was asked about treating Asked to explain why he thought “misinformation” was the leading cause of death in America today, Califf immediately retreated, admitting that he had no data to establish his claim and tacitly admitting that it was just a Leftist talking point… in short, the interview should’ve stopped right there… “I have no data to support this next dumb thing I’m about to say.” Oh you have no data for this? Okay, end of discussion. Who is spreading misinformation here? That noted right-wing outlet, the New York Times, reported on Feb. 28 about a new study that didn’t quite agree with Califf’s rosy picture of the vaccines’ efficacy. As the omicron variant surged, the Times stated, “the vaccine’s effectiveness against hospitalization declined to 73 percent from 85 percent in the older children. In the younger children, effectiveness dropped to 48 percent from 100 percent. But because few children were hospitalized, these estimates have wide margins of error. The numbers for protection from infection are more reliable. Vaccine effectiveness against infection in the older children decreased to 51 percent from 66 percent. But in the younger children, it dropped sharply to just 12 percent from 68 percent.” But as far as Robert Califf is concerned, if we silence such inconvenient data and only allow the FDA’s line to flood the airwaves, many lives will be saved. We’ll be living in an authoritarian police state that silences dissenting views, but when has the Left ever been worried about that? Well Ohio seems to be worried about stuff like this, as a bill has been presented, that would ban Facebook, Twitter from censoring users… color me intrigued… https://fox8.com/news/ohio-bill-would-ban-facebook-twitter-from-censoring-users/ According to Fox 8 News in Columbus, One year after YouTube removed from its site a video in which an Ohio attorney touted lies about COVID-19, eight Republicans approved a bill to counter what they called Big Tech’s suppression of free speech. In an 8-4 vote Thursday, the Civil Justice Committee approved House Bill 441 to prohibit social media platforms from censoring expression based on a user’s “viewpoint” – not including speech that’s already deemed illegal under federal law, like harassment or shouting “fire” in a crowded theater. The bill joins an increasingly national discourse concerned with the uptick in social media sites deplatforming or restricting users – like the permanent suspension of former President Donald Trump’s Twitter account due to what Twitter says, was an incitement of violence… Though I’m sure we’ve all heard by now that Elon Musk said that he would reverse the ban on Trump, calling it “unmoral”. Though, with him not being saved, what does he mean by unmoral? Who says? Anyways. “By preventing Big Tech companies from continuing to engage in viewpoint discrimination, we hope to protect the free exchange of ideas and information in Ohio,” Rep. Scott Wiggam (R-Wooster) said in his testimony before the Civil Justice Committee. While the bill does not equip the state with the power to enforce the censorship ban, it does allow individual Ohioans to file a civil suit against social media companies with more than 50 million U.S. users that block, remove or restrict them from using their site.

The report from OpenTheBooks.com said the royalty payments, including at least 23 to Fauci and 14 to his former boss, Collins, were paid out between 2010 and 2020. Government scientists got the payments for being credited as “co-inventors” of various treatments and pharmaceutical products, according to the report. OpenTheBooks.com co-founder and CEO Adam Andrzejewski wrote, “Because those payments enrich the agency and its scientists, each and every royalty payment could be a potential conflict of interest and needs disclosure, NIH is a revolving door of tens of billions of dollars in government grant-making coupled with hundreds of millions of dollars in private – non-transparent – royalty payments.” The report paints an incestuous picture of the NIH doling out $30 billion a year in grants to some 56,000 recipients in Big Pharma, research institutes and other entities, with money flowing back to the secretive agency’s scientists and senior management in the form of huge royalty payments. It is not yet known how much the payments to Fauci, who is the U.S. government highest-salaried employee at $456,028, totaled. In addition to his salary and whatever royalty payments he has received, Fauci last year won a $1 million prize from the Dan David Foundation for “speaking truth to power.” Collins resigned as NIH director in December after leading the agency for 12 years. Fauci is the longtime head of NIH’s National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and also serves as chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden. OpenTheBooks.com made the $350 million estimate by extrapolating from documents received as part of a federal lawsuit against NIH. So far, the group has uncovered evidence of more than 22,100 royalty payments totaling nearly $134 million paid from 2009-2014 to 1,700 NIH scientists. The group is awaiting another 1,800 pages of royalty disclosures which would cover the period from 2015-2020. Under court order, the NIH has agreed to produce 300 pages a month, but insisted on producing documents related to Fauci last – sometime in November, according to Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.

That's right!  Tony is interviewing Mitch about what he's learned as he's approaching 365 episodes of Dream Think Do!  It's a fun, inspiring and eye-opening conversation because Tony is not only a bestselling author and speaker, it's an award-winning journalist who has interviewed world leaders, celebrities and entrepreneurs from around the world.  Mitch didn't know what questions were going to be asked (other than some awesome questions Dream Think Do listeners submitted when they heard about the interview).  Antonio went deep into the archives to draw out some great behind the scenes stories and powerful insights from Mitch.  Plus, the LAST question really surprised Mitch and brought some personal revelation that brought ALL the emotions.  So listen in and be ready to get inspired to climb YOUR mountains, define those important milestones in YOUR life… and find the right ways to stick with YOUR dreams!

YOUR QUESTIONS: Now, we'd asked if DREAM THINK DOers wanted to submit any questions and you guys responded with some GREAT ones.   From those, Antonio and I chose the following questions: “Ok, here we go. I love love love my podcast. In fact, I am creating a second and am a co-host on another. My question is, when there is momentum and excitement it is easy to keep on going. What happens when the juices dry up a bit? How do you get your mojo back?” - Gail Craft “Over the time I have gotten to know you listening to your show, I would say (and I know many agree) that you are gifted with wisdom. What would you say has been a key to growing in wisdom for you that a younger dream think doer could implement?”  - Beth Medley  “People are constantly suggesting that I start a podcast, but the market is so saturated that I don't think I have much value to add. What made you take the leap? Did you start by just interviewing friends and colleagues?” - Kim Harden But other than these 3… I didn't know the questions Antonio was going to ask.  So it felt like we were operating without a net.  BUT I trust Tony… so we went for it.  And it was a blast!   We talked about things like: PERSISTENCE… and how to stick with something (even when you're tired) SURPRISES along the way… and some of the unexpected gifts of pursuing dreams SETBACKS… because they're going to come… and how do you get back up FEAR… and how to overcome it in power but simple ways But one of my favorite questions unearthed a story about some wisdom my bride Melissa offered me early on.  It's something that helped me to set the course for my podcast but it's also something that's helped me live a happier and bolder life!  I can't wait for you to hear THAT one. WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

It's since come leaps and bounds, but the development of robotics has placed surgery at another crossroads.

CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Wednesday May 11th, 2022. Intro this clip: https://twitter.com/johnwesleyreid/status/1524032799501697037 Justice Alito’s neighbor decided to blast “Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus” as pro-abortion protestors, outside of Alito’s home, shout something about wanting justice? Have you signed up for our show in Arizona…it is next week, what are you waiting for! Folks- we got some exciting news for the happenings going around here at CrossPolitic and the Fight Laugh Feast Network. First, starting May 30th, CrossPolitic will be moving to a daily show, airing every day at 6pm and of course dropping podcasts. Knox has been pushing us to do this for two years, and he has finally won that argument. So, get ready to tune into you number one nightly news and commentary source! Secondly, to make room for all this new production, the Daily News Brief will be going back to audio, which is where a bulk of our Daily News listeners were at anyways. Thirdly, we have a bunch of new club member benefits we are working on, including an updated website club portal and club only social media platform. So, those listeners who have been lingering in the background, join the club, the party is just getting started. And for our thousands of club members, thank you for staying with us, your continued support, and your prayers. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and this very much feels like a further up and further in moment. Now where was I. Oh that is right, the bloodlust for the abortion crowd is insanity, and you will be seeing unleashed insanity if Roe is overturned. After calling the LGBT to arm themselves, the Mayor of Chicago also promised that Chicago would become and abortion sanctuary. The call of violence is spreading and this pass Sunday a molotov cocktail was thrown into the Wisconsin Family Action offices. As the pro-abortion community found out about it, they decided to leave messages, and here is a compilation of some of those messages: https://notthebee.com/article/pro-life-wisconsin “​​(A) radical pro-abortion group named Jane’s Revenge is saying it was responsible and is threatening increasingly violent attacks that extend beyond Wisconsin if its demands are not met, writing, “Wisconsin is the first flashpoint, but we are all over the US, and we will issue no further warnings.” https://www.lifenews.com/2022/05/10/pro-abortion-group-says-it-firebombed-pro-life-office-promises-more-violence-nationwide-our-last-warning/ Plug Did you know that more than 75% of those raised in evangelical, Presbyterian, and Reformed churches don’t pursue any kind of Christian higher education? Surprising isn’t it. Cornerstone Work & Worldview Institute is seeking to provide a new, exciting, and affordable option for Christians. Their mission is to build Kingdom culture in the workplace by equipping their students in a Trinitarian worldview and vocational competencies. Their low-cost full-time program offers integrative course modules, internships, and mentoring so their students can finish debt-free with vocational preparation, a robust faith, and financial potential to build strong godly families and homes rooted in their communities and churches long-term. Visit their website at www.cornerstonework.org to find out more about enrolling. Elon Musk would let President Trump back on Twitter and cited the ban was "foolish to the extreme”. Roll clip: https://twitter.com/disclosetv/status/1524085282366177283 Friends, we have tons of military personnel that listen to our shows, and they keep us in the loop about what is going on, on the inside as they fight for their careers against the forced vaccination policies. Well right now there is an important court case in front of a federal district court judge in Omaha, that if the judge would rule in favor of religious exemptions, it would apply to the Air Force nationwide. According to the Omaha World Herald: https://omaha.com/news/state-and-regional/offutt-airmen-ask-judge-to-block-covid-vaccine-mandate-citing-religious-beliefs/article_8e96601c-cd89-11ec-b0a7-1f525a4310d5.html “Three current or former Offutt airmen who have refused the COVID-19 vaccine on religious grounds asked a federal district court judge in Omaha on Monday to stop the Air Force from discharging or otherwise punishing them. Capt. Ian McGee, an RC-135 instructor pilot with the Offutt-based 55th Wing, said he applied for a religious exemption eight months ago but hasn’t received a response from his chain of command. He expects it to be denied, as the Air Force has denied nearly all of the more than 7,800 airmen who have applied for them under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, known as RFRA. McGee said he would give up his nine-year military career rather than be injected with a vaccine tested with cell lines taken many years ago from aborted fetuses. “It goes against my sincerely held religious beliefs as a born-again Christian,” McGee testified. “My resolve is to stay with my relationship with Jesus Christ.” The three airmen are part of a larger group of 36 — including active-duty, National Guard and reserves — who filed suit in U.S. District Court in Nebraska in March seeking to overturn the mandate issued by the Pentagon last August. They argue it is a violation of their First Amendment rights. They are represented by former Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach and a team of lawyers from the America First Policy Institute, a conservative think tank organized last year by several top advisers in the administration of former President Donald Trump. Kris Kobach “blasted the elaborate multi-level review of the applications for religious exemptions, alleging that more than 7,500 have been denied and only 46 granted. And the ones granted were only for airmen who were within six months of retirement.” Be praying for our people in the military. This is stressful on their families, careers, and the mainstream media is giving them no voice. CrossPolitic is glad to do our part! Meanwhile, the Republican Senate is making some chess moves on behalf of our friends fighting in the military. According to the Military Times: https://www.militarytimes.com/news/coronavirus/2022/05/10/bill-would-mandate-honorable-discharge-for-all-troops-who-refuse-covid-vaccine-mandate/ A “proposal — led by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and backed by 13 other GOP colleagues” Would require Defense officials “to grant honorable dismissals to nearly all troops who refuse the COVID-19 vaccine and grant waivers to troops with “natural immunity” to the virus under new legislation introduced by Republican senators on Tuesday.” It “would also mandate that military leaders “make every effort to retain members of the Armed Forces who are not vaccinated” and broaden religious exemptions for the vaccine mandate.” Cruz said: ““It is absolutely unacceptable that [President Joe Biden’s] administration is trying to coerce our men and women in uniform to violate their conscience and religious beliefs, let alone on an issue as polarizing as the COVID-19 vaccine.” Last month, defense officials told Congress that about 3,400 troops have been involuntarily separated from service for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine, mandated last fall for all military members. Of that group, about 70% have received general discharges, a designation that allows them to receive most veterans benefits and potentially rejoin the military at a later date. The other 30% have received honorable discharges. Congress last year forbade military leaders from issuing dishonorable discharges for vaccine refusal.” Lies, Propaganda, Story Telling, and the Serrated Edge: This year our national conference is in Knoxville, TN October 6th-8th. The theme of this year’s conference is Lies, Propaganda, Storytelling and the Serrated Edge. Satan is the father of lies, and the mother of those lies is a government who has rejected God. We have especially been lied to these last two years, and the COVIDpanic has been one of the central mechanisms that our government has used to lie to us and to grab more power. Because Christians have not been reading their bibles, we are susceptible to lies and weak in our ability to fight these lies. God has given us His word to fight Satan and his lies, and we need to recover all of God’s word, its serrated edge and all. Mark your calendars for October 6th-8th, as we fight, laugh and feast with fellowship, beer and Psalms, our amazing lineup of speakers, hanging with our awesome vendors, meeting new friends, and more.

DeSantis Signs Bill Requiring High Schools to Observe ‘Victims of Communism Day’ https://www.ntd.com/desantis-signs-bill-requiring-high-schools-to-observe-victims-of-communism-day_776951.html According to the NTD: “Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill Monday that requires “Victims of Communism Day” to be observed annually in public high schools across the state. The bill, known as HB 395, requires public schools to tell students about genocides, famines, and persecutions under communist regimes, including the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Soviet Union. The bill passed the Florida House and Senate unanimously earlier this year. “We want to make sure that every year folks in Florida, but particularly our students, will learn about the evils of communism, the dictators that have led communist regimes, and the hundreds of millions of individuals who suffered and continue to suffer under the weight of this discredited ideology,” DeSantis said Monday morning. The Victims of Communism organization has estimated that communist regimes have caused the deaths of at least 100 million people via political purges, religious persecutions, mass starvation, and other crimes against humanity during the 20th century. Chief among those regimes is the CCP, which is believed to have left around 80 million Chinese people dead.” This is Gabriel Rench with Crosspolitic News.

Next, the New York Islanders surprisingly fired head coach Barry Trotz after an unfortunate season that, honestly, isn't to blame on the head coach. Though Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello isn't the cutting-edge hockey man he used to be, this move is a real stunner and absolutely gifts a team one of the best head coaches in the NHL. Plus, the Ottawa Senators fired Pierre McGuire after less than a year working as the team's senior vice-president of player development. McGuire could very well head back to the broadcasting scene after a likely rift with general manager Pierre Dorion caused the split. And finally, Andrew and Mary go deep into spoiler territory to discuss Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and their thoughts on the newest Marvel film! Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Robert Cahaly, Chief Pollster at the Trafalgar Group, rejoins the Dom Giordano Program after some surprising polling results in the most recent Trafalgar poll. Giordano has repeatedly had Cahaly on due to his trust of Trafalgar polling, many times complimenting the different strategies employed by the organization when performing their polling. Cahaly reveals that Barnette has skyrocketed in popularity in recent polling, now nipping at the heels of Dr. Mehmet Oz and joining Dave McCormick, now making the battle a three horse race. Also, Giordano asks for Cahaly's opinion on new polling in the gubernatorial race pointing to Mastriano as a clear front-runner in the race, with the polling expert pointing to the release of 2000 Mules as a huge benefit to candidates using voter integrity as a cornerstone issue in their campaign. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

Health Equity Actions: When Racial Bias Is Built Into Our Medical Tools

When we talk about health equity, we often hear about overcoming both implicit and explicit bias, which implies that if we could only change individual and collective behavior, we could improve health outcomes. But what is left out of these discussions is the important factor of structural racism, the ways that our health care system were built to generate the racial health inequities we see today. Surprising to some clinicians is that structural racism is even built into the tools that we use on an everyday basis, everything from lab values to pulse oximeters. Join this discussion with our guest host Adriene Thornton, Health Equity Manager and her guest, Siman Nuurali, Change Management Consultant as they discuss how racism is built into the tools of healthcare and what we can do to change this going forward.
