Brian's Questions: Hey guys, First of all, thanks for the most helpful woodworking podcast around! My question(s) revolve around a home library project. I'm planning on bookcases on all four walls of a small room and wondering how you'd approach that, specifically: (1) what would you do about the inside corners of the room where two sets of bookcases come together? Just blank them off? Something else? (2) as far as the cases themselves, for cost reasons, I'm planning to do 3/4 plywood carcasses close to 8' high with one fixed shelf in the middle (Domino construction) and shelf pins for the rest of the shelves. How wide can I reasonably go without sag in the shelves? Is one fixed shelf enough for stability or do I need two, say? Do I need a plywood back on each case? Any other general tips on a library project or this type? Thanks! Mat What tools you guys do regret to buy? Marcello Alright fellas first question from me. I finally got a Makita track saw and went for the full 110". I'm going to tear down my old 2x4 oversized work bench and start over with a nice miter saw / work area cabinet wall. My plan is to go about 30" deep to accommodate my DeWalt sliding dual bevel giant miter saw while also giving me ample assembly area. Maybe an mft style work area on one side, maybe t tracks here and there. I'm going to leave it a little open ended for you guys to play around with the idea. What would your dream work area like this include? No limits, all the bells and whistles. No one to tell you no. Thanks for taking my question. Jim G. Huy's Questions: Hi Guys, Really enjoy the podcast and all the useful information. I wrote before about a walnut table I am making. I have a couple of questions. I looked at the walnut at the local lumber yard. Great selection but lumber is pretty expensive. Question 1: The lumber distributor has a great selection. For the table top should I spring for quarter sawn at roughly 1/3 more per board foot? Question 2: I am trying to bring some order to chaos in my shop and am considering some shop cabinets. a) should I consider casters? b) should I spend the extra to install side mount drawer slides or will homemade runners be good enough? Thanks for your help and the great podcast. -Scott Good day guys..My question is probably primarily for Huy. I am getting back into woodworking after a lengthy hiatus to a career that did not allow me the time. Now that I do have the time, I am diving right back in. I am a lifelong contract mechanical designer, and have been a SolidWorks user/license holder since 1999, dont do the math on how much that has depleted my bank account in the past 24 years, and I am no rocket scientist like Huy, I have only done work on 70 ton vehicles designed outside detroit. SolidWorks is amazing, and I have designed many projects for my woodworking with it. However I feel it is a bit heavyweight on the design side for the projects I want to do. I want to be working in my shop, and not spending hours designing parts, making assemblies etc. Dont get me wrong, the end results are incredible on the design side, but design for my woodworking shoudlnt be 60% on SolidWorks and 40% on tools. Any suggestions for the best solution for this? I have not spent alot of time researching, but have looked into Fusion360 and other solutions but not greatly as I know there will a thought process change required. I am just looking for something simple, quick and of course accurate. We live in a 3d world, and that is an important aspect for me.Thank you so much. Kurtis, DutchMillWorks Hey guys, Josh here, hope this is the right way to contact you all. My question is, what machine do you think you can get away with in order to produce the most projects? I was thinking a lathe for drinkware, baseball bats and so on depending on a mini, midi or full size lathe. But I'm no expert by any means, I only had a couple years of shop experience in school and most of the terminology has escaped me since, but all the hands on experience is still fresh in my mind and I'm hoping to get this hobby started up again. Thank you. Joshua

Jesus Followers Have the Important Gospel Communication Tool – Their Life in Christ Lets Others See Jesus in Them MESSAGE SUMMARY: In 2 Corinthians 3:12-18, Paul writes a complex statement that tells you, as a follower of Jesus, about the most important tool that God gives you for communicating the Gospel -- God lets others see Jesus in you through your life in Christ! Therefore, by living in Christ, your life becomes the most compelling argument for the Gospel – an argument that far surpasses written or spoken words. Paul's 2 Corinthians 3:12-18 text reads: “Since we have such a hope, we are very bold, not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”. Do others, from your life, see Jesus in you? TODAY'S PRAYER: Father, I confess that when difficulties and trials come into my life, large or small, I mostly grumble and complain. I realize the trials James talks about are not necessarily “walls,” but they are difficult to bear, nonetheless. Fill me with such a vision of a transformed life, O God, that I might actually consider it “pure joy” when you bring trials my way. I believe, Lord. Help my unbelief. In Jesus' name, amen. Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 94). Zondervan. Kindle Edition. TODAY'S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Inconsistencies. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit's fruit of Faithfulness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

We've recently released a new publication that synthesizes years of research on AI and its impact on teaching and learning. You can find it at GettingSmart.com/artificial-intelligence/ On this episode of the Getting Smart Podcast, Nate McClennen is joined by Anant Agarwal, MIT Professor, Chief Platform Officer at 2U and Founder and CEO of edX, an online learning platform founded by Harvard and MIT. In 2020, Anant shared the story and vision for EdX from inception to present and its effort to increase access, reduce cost, and implement modularity in the higher education ecosystem. So much has happened in the last three years, that we thought it would be great to hear from Anant again (after his first time on the show) to get his sense of AI and how it will both play a role in both teaching in higher education as well as a topic for learning in higher education.

Hikikomori is an extreme form of social isolation first recognized in Japan in the 1990s. It’s distinct from similar conditions like anxiety or agoraphobia and is characterized by sustained physical isolation, often at home. The condition is still gaining traction in mental health spaces, but a research team led by Oregon Health & Science University has developed a new evaluation tool to help providers diagnose hikikomori. Alan Teo, associate professor of psychiatry at OHSU, joins us with more details on the first-of-its-kind tool, and how the pandemic exacerbated conditions related to social isolation.

Are psychedelics the real deal when it comes to healing trauma? What if you think you don't have trauma in your life? Tune in to learn about the healing benefits of psychedelics, as well as how to experience them in a safe environment. On today's episode, Jenn talks with Dr. Randall Hansen, who is a promoter of healing through the power of psychedelic medicines. Dr. Hansen discusses how he discovered the healing benefits of psychedelics and where we are as a country when it comes to FDA approval of using psychedelics as therapy. He educates on what trauma is and how psychedelics can help with uncovering and healing trauma, while also sharing stories from people who have been able to heal with macrodosing. Tune in to learn why psychedelics are a useful tool for healing, as well as what to look for if you are ready to give them a try.The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry. Let's dive into wellness and weight loss for real life, including drinking, eating out, and skipping the grocery store. IN THIS EPISODE:● [5:41] Dr. Randall Hansen tells us about his wellness and healing journey. ● [11:15] Where are we currently in terms of wider use and approval of psychedelic substances in the United States? ● [15:51] What qualifies as trauma?● [20:57] How does the body hold onto trauma even after we think we're healed from it?● [24:30] Dr. Randall Hansen shares what we know so far about what psychedelics are doing in the body.● [35:35] What do we know about what's happening physiology that allows us to have the observer mode, or re-experience something without it being traumatizing? ● [40:30] What Dr. Randall recommends for trying psychedelics safely.● [45:53] What should you look for to know that you are utilizing someone safely for your psychedelic experience? KEY TAKEAWAYS:● Trauma is unprocessed emotions that we block out and try to run away from. It can be from an event that happened (abuse, accidents, etc.) but it's also the absence of things, such as a lack of feeling loved or having your emotions validated. ● Community is so crucial when you are trying psychedelics, being able to talk with others about what you are experiencing, find safety while using (a doctor or therapist), and to uncover what you saw or were told during the journey. ● Psychedelics can help you take a journey in a non triggering, non threatening way so that you can experience your trauma, identify it, and begin to heal from it. Some people only need one journey, while others will need to repeat. QUOTES: “Intellectually we might think we're fine or we've worked through it. The body working through it is a different thing.” - Jenn Trepeck“Trauma's not the event that happened to you, it's the unprocessed emotions you just bury.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“According to announcements at MAPS (Psychedelics Science) Conference, they expect that MDMA...will be hopefully approved by the FDA for PTS therapy in 2024.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“The thing about all these psychedelics is they allow you to discuss or see the trauma in a non threatening, non triggering way, almost like you're watching a movie on TV or something like that, like it's someone else's story, but it's your story.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“First, we know that the psychedelics shut down our default mode network, which is our kind of our inner voice. It's always telling us, you know, how's my hair, always talking to us and driving is at least sometimes driving me crazy. And so it shuts that down. So all of a sudden there's a little more silence in your brain.” - Dr. Randall HansenRESOURCES:The Body Keeps The Score BookClinical Trials WebsiteRetreat Guru WebsiteBecome A Member of Salad with a Side of FriesJenn's Free Menu PlanA Salad With a Side of FriesA Salad With A Side Of Fries MerchA Salad With a Side of Fries InstagramGUEST RESOURCESPersonal WebsiteBook WebsiteDr. Randall Hansen's LinkedInDr. Randall Hansen's FacebookDr. Randall Hansen's YouTubeDr. Randall Hansen's TwitterDr. Randall Hansen's IGGUEST BIO:Dr. Randall Hansen has been an educator his entire life.

Anatoliy Labinskiy is an entrepreneur, eCommerce expert, salesman, holder of 4-time Two Comma Club awards. His story is a perfect example of life when everything goes against us to become successful. In less than 5 years, he went from a simple waiter to a successful businessman and an owner of an 8 figure winner awards in the ecommerce space. Anatoliy is the founder of GSM Growth agency that helps ecom entrepreneurs grow to 6-7 figures in revenue. He is included in the Forbes Business Council and featured as one of the Top 10 eCommerce Entrepreneurs helping people during the COVID-19 recession. Questions • So, we always like to start off by finding out from our guests a little bit about their journey in your own words. Could you tell us a little bit about how you got to where you are today? • Now along that journey that took you to where you are today, what are maybe two to three things that you believe has contributed to your success that you believe if other people employ those three skills or competencies, they will achieve success as well? • Can you also share with us Anatoliy, in your experience, maybe two or three tips that you believe will help to enhance sales and customer service skills as an entrepreneur? • Could you also share with us what's the one online resource, tool, website or app that you absolutely cannot live without in your business? • Could you also share with our listeners what's the one thing that's going on in your life right now that you're really excited about? Either something you're working on to develop yourself or your people. • Where can listeners find you online? • Now, before we wrap our episodes up, we always like to ask our guests, do you have a quote or saying that during times of adversity or challenge, you will tend to revert to this quote if for any reason you get derailed or demotivated the quote kind of helps to get you back on track. Do you have one of those? Highlights Anatoliy's Journey Anatoliy shared that his journey is quite long and he will try to be as short as possible because it's a lot of factors which has brought him where he is today. But basically, back in 2013, he went to UAE Abu Dhabi with no cash and he didn't know English at all, had nothing behind him and just start working there as a like food runner, cleaning dirty plate from the restaurant but dreaming a lot as a simple Ukrainian guy that what he can have in this world when he has seen Abu Dhabi because Abu Dhabi is kind of a rich city in Arabic Emirates. So, it's something what motivates him. And after several years of failing, finding the better work, the better opportunities in life, he got married during that time. And back in 2017, he was already renting like small master bedroom, not even apartment, small room with his wife. And his wife said to him that she is pregnant. And that day, he really was scared like never before because he has seen her how she's crying. And not because she's happy, because she was terrified, like what's going to happen with them, they don't have their own apartment, rented apartments, they just rent in the room. And he promised to himself that he will not allow his kid to come in this world in the way where how he's living and how he grew up with financial troubles. So, he sent his wife back to Ukraine and start like move to even smaller apartment with two bedroom apartment with 7 other people rented just the bed space to save some money and start searching for opportunities and find out what is eCommerce all about. Give it a shot, spend everything what he had, nothing workout, and style start like becoming a zombie. Because I got addicted to the ecommerce and said to himself, 99% of people are failing, because they're quitting, he will never quit, he will never give up and he will make it work and he will become the top one person who will succeed. And this is exactly what happened after several months of fail and lost everything that he had. In February 2018, he finally got his first $8,000 in 15 days of sales in his Shopify store. And like step by step, October 2018, his first $50,000, November $150,000 and so on, so on. So, for the next couple of years, he was doing coaching of how to succeed in eCommerce. And in 2020, opened his eCommerce agency because there was a lot of requests from his students, “Can you manage ads, not with me, for me?” And he was like, “Wow, that's something interesting!” And they tested it out, one of the stores they made over $6.5 Million in two and a half years. And they were like, “Wow, that's really insane!” And in the same time when they were building all this process, they decided to switch from the mentorship to the agency side. And so, from March 2020, they are operating GSM Growth Agency and now have multiple businesses which is operating with different business partners. Me: Wow, that's a fulsome story Anatoliy, really, really powerful. Skills and Competencies Needed to Achieve Success Me: Now along that journey that took you to where you are today, what are maybe two to three things that you believe has contributed to your success that you believe if other people employ those three skills or competencies, they will achieve success as well? Anatoliy stated that it's a great question. And it's like good sounds too basic, but it is the fundamental of success. So, first of all, Never Give Up. You can turn left and right if something straight doesn't work. Like for example, he was always teaching his students that okay, if dropshipping eCommerce won't work for you, listen, in this couple of months, you've got insane experience in eCommerce industry, in Shopify, like affirmations of different processes and all marketing, find out just different sub niche in eCommerce and test it out that as well and see that maybe there you'll get more luck with that. So, some of the people who are listening to him that they quit on the dropshipping, but one of them actually told their partners, in couple years, come back to him and say that they now operate in email marketing agency successfully. Another person came back to him after one and half year and said, “Anatoliy, I follow your steps and now I'm living in Abu Dhabi. And he was in France before as an immigrant, and now I'm running like, YouTube automation advertising agency.” And there is several stories like that, one person just go out as a head of marketing department position in his city, just because he was smartest guy in the room on the interview, because he just used that experience, which he got in the couple of months of mentorship. And he just implemented as like life experience to his own needs. And he became like in some local company, marketing expert and got the head of marketing department. So never give up, like adapt and try something else. This is number one thing which he would say for sure. The second thing, You Have to Know Your Why. If your why is just finances, you just follow the cash, you will fail, you will never build a strong business, never. You will make money here and now most probably, and that's fine. But at the end, you'll stay with nothing because when you don't have your strong why, you won't to be able to build anything sustainable, and for the long run, you're going to be just going to make quick cash and that's it. So, think about your why, his why, for example, it was his son, when he found out that his wife is pregnant as she delivered the baby, he still haven't made anything, he lost already everything by that moment when baby has been delivered. But it was his strong why that he has no chance to lose. He have no chances to quit and his why was so strong that it was pushing him forward and it's continued pushing him because he knows that he has higher responsibilities now and kids are growing and you need universities to think about, you need schools to think about, you need to think about your own life, retirement and all that stuff. So, you're basically building your own life under your own rules, it's your why. You have to think of your why which is going to let you wake up earlier, going to sleep later, this is the second thing. And number three, Don't Be Scared to Hire People, to Build a Team. So many people stay in as a small business owners, small intrapreneurs just because first of all, they don't want to lose the profitability, “Oh my god, if I hire him, I cannot afford it. I will lose like instead of 40% profit, I will be on 20% profit, it's not possible. No, no, no how will I pay my bills.” They think so small and they look so straight like he's always saying oh look wider on it. When you start looking wider on the things, you understand by hiring technical person who are going to be able to reduce the busy work from you on the technical stuff, your brain will start functionalities of how to create more business to your company. And will be a CEO of your company, chief executive officer, which is the goal is to bring more businesses to your business. So, by hiring one more or couple of people, you will lose profitability at the beginning, you will reduce the profitability but it will allow you by having one technical person, one salesperson, it will allow you to bring more businesses and operate more customers, a salesperson will bring you more people, more clients and the technical person will be operating and managing them while you're thinking about new channels for getting more customers, for improving the skills of your employers and so on, by having this kind of team, or by having this kind of three rules in your life to follow, you will be able to grow so fast, this is what he has done. He's been a mentor for couple of years, and he reached his ceiling of income and I couldn't grow because he has only 24 hours a day and he's alone, when he hires one person for testing like agency stuff and after that switch to completely agency model, they made four weeks in the first month of starting agency to compare when he was alone, that's the example. And it's always like that, don't be scared to hire a team, find your why and never give up, these three things, which he would highly recommend to follow, it simple, but it is the true. Tips to Enhance Sales and Customer Service Skills as an Entrepreneur Me: Can you also share with us Anatoliy, in your experience, maybe two or three tips that you believe will help to enhance sales and customer service skills as an entrepreneur? What are some of the things that you've done to enhance customer service to deliver that amazing, fantastic experience that your customers want to come back, not just buy from you once, but come back again and again? Anatoliy stated that it's a great question. Because he will tell you honestly, result in great customer service, your company will not survive as well. Like if you don't have a goal in life, and if you don't have a customer service in company, as it is good customer service. So, by that being said, by working in eCommerce, they are not dealing with people straight away, face to face, they are dealing online and online to make the person calm, it's harder than you are face to face with them on the phone, because they don't see your reactions, they don't see who you are, they don't feel the emotions, they are just angry and you need to deal with that by using the right words and right techniques. So, he's really grateful for his past experience being a waiter in back in 2014, 2015, 2016. Like in Dubai, he moved from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, where he got to experience in the top Italian restaurants of Abu Dhabi. And after that top Italian restaurant in Dubai, where he learned a lot of customer service tactics and sales tactics, how to sell someone who is already full, how to sell dessert or coffee, or how to sell $3,000 wine, it is storytelling, and it is a great language, how to produce the right wipes that person would love to buy from you and come back again because they enjoy the service. So, by that being said, when he started coaching, he got 100% of success in terms of customer service by implementing exactly the same structure. Even if it wasn't work for person, he never got anyone left him with angry face, even if they were not satisfied with something after conversation with him and customer service, which he provided during the journey, they were leaving with smile and wishing him all the best. So, when he opened the agency, he was training his company, his team, it being him. So, he was sharing with them all the golden nuggets and all his experience, how to speak with their customers for buying from website, clients for using their service in the agency and so on. So, one of the tactics which he learned so now he coming to the answer. It was just a story before. You're supposed to always introduce yourself as a middleman. What does it mean? Even if you're CEO of your company, you're proud of it, and you want to show that yeah, I'm a decision maker. I'm the main guy here, I'm the main lady here and I'm going to be making decision if I will give you a discount, refund, will solve your problem or no, then this person will know that it will become even matter because okay, this is the guy who I will screw now, who I will get paid from. So, in our industry, very important, do not allow this to happen. So, that's why. Usually how it works, he will give you an example of like email marketing when speaking to someone who just purchased from you and they said, “Hey, it's the wrong size” or like, “Hey, I changed my mind, I want blue not red t shirt, and it's already on the way so it's already shipped, it's not possible to be done.” You can provide discount, but not exchange only if they will return the item. So, basically, how to handle that, are you introduce yourself let's say, “My name is Misty, I'm a customer service specialist in the XYZ store. I'm here to support you with any kind of questions which you have. I have noticed that you send it to us these kinds of requests.” And obviously asking for tracking number, this is one of the parts of their business, but the main point, you introduce yourself not as an authority, you introduce yourself as a customer service specialist, who is not responsible for decision making. And saying, “Please clarify for me all the details of your problem. And I will do my best to forward that to the top management and ask them to support you in this situation. And again, I'm not making any decisions but I know that your case completely can be managed in somehow and I will be fighting for you because I feel what is going on. I feel your pain. I feel what you're saying.” use these kinds of words, it makes people calm. It makes people feeling that someone is taking care of them. And it's good to implementable even better in the local shop, in the local business because when you are saying to them, even they know that you're the one they stand face to face to but you're saying and they say, “Oh my god, you paint my car and my car looks disaster. Give my $3,000 back. I want refund.” And you know that it's not possible but maybe you can give some small, we refund that they will be happier but if you will be decision maker in front of them, they will squeeze you. But if you say, “Hey, I completely understand what you're saying, oh my god, really, it's never happened before. But I'm here to help you out. Even you know that I'm the owner of the place. But the thing is that we have a structure. We have an accounting department, we have lawyers, we have agreements which has been signed, I need to figure it out how I can help you out to overtake all those bit of variety of stuff, and making sure that I will be able to provide you the best possible solution. Are you with me with that?” And this person is feeling like, “Oh my god, he's awesome.” He's pointed out he's the owner, but he's not able to help because there is several bureaucratic steps, which he needs to take over and find out the solution. But he's more than sure that by his personal approach, he'll find out the best possible option. But even you pointed out that you need to go through the heads and finding out, they know that decision maker somewhere there. And you'll come back in some time if it's locally on the phone or in the mail and saying, “Hey, I just spoke to the management and as I said to you, we have a like non-refundable agreement which just has been signed, but listen, I was talking to them and I was really pushing them hard to make the things different. That's why I made it happen and my pressure allows me to squeeze this deal as much as possible and they agreed to give you a full refund of your request by 20% of the deal which you have made let's say $3,000 painting the car it's like 20% $600 plus you can receive from us XYZ in the future, so all it depends on your business.” App, Website or Tool that Anatoliy Absolutely Can't Live Without in His Business When asked about an online resource that he cannot live without in his business, Anatoliy shared that because his business is online, they use advertising platforms such as Facebook, TikTok, Google. So, Shopify, he would say in his particular direction, right now, if they will lose Shopify, it will be huge trouble for the company, because they don't have business. All of their customers on Shopify stores. But since he's living in eCommerce direction, they have a lot of alternatives, which is WooCommerce, Corra, a lot of different alternatives so they'll switch their direction and move there. But he would say it's will affect them a lot the same, like if Facebook won't work, they'll have Tik Tok, Tik Tok not work, they have Google. So, they have different options of the softwares to exchange in case something is happening, but different tools. But seriously, like if Shopify goes down, it's definitely will hold their business for a while to fix the problem. What Anatoliy is Really Excited About Now! Anatoliy shared that he would say that right now, they have two new directions, which is he's really excited about to grow them. And one is his personal and one is about the team, and he's excited to bring that to his team as fast as possible and get results because it will be new era for his team of the interesting projects. So, first one is for the company for the team, it's like IUL telesales mastery direction, which is for the insurance agents who are dealing with the insurance packages for nurses for life insurance. And it's incredible valuable product which is they are teaching them, they have a 20 years plus coach with 23 year plus experienced coaches who are going to be coaching those salespeople how to sell successfully life insurance for a particular niche, like a nurse's niche. But it is useful for nurses because they won't be paying taxes from their retirement when they retire and their insurance will be there. With these kinds of IUL insurance, they will be able to save all the cost on taxes and avoid pay taxes legally and build their bigger wealth for the retirement process in the future. So, it's like super useful product for the end user and super cool and powerful product for the insurance agents. So, this is something that he's excited to bring in the mass from the company side as a different project. And something personal, which is he's like really cannot sleep and excited every single day. It was back in 2017, eCommerce, the same work he's now excited about this one for himself. It's a real estate investments in Section 8, so they are buying houses in bad shape, doing full rehab and providing for the Section 8 people like rental agreements with the government and provided for the Section 8 people who are having low income, not able to rent by themselves be signing contracts with the government and providing them the place to live and it's not the cheapest or bad shape houses, they are actually going to be doing full rehab and these kinds of people can live in the normal condition house and build their life in the way how they wish to. So, it's super useful for the end user who are going to be staying there as a tenant. And it's a great business model since they're going to be dealing with the government and getting the consistent cash flow from the government checks. So, providing the place where to live physical conditions for people. And so, growing business there, it's one of the incredible things which just makes him excited like never before.

It also forced Sonia T. to slow down her own horses to be okay with the unknown. There was a period where Sonia T. was disappointed that she didn't get to see more art, but at the same time, she turned this into a positive and was able to forge a new sense of adventure and purpose for the trip.

There have been a lot of things that have revolutionized how educators teach in the classrooms. Things like Wikipedia, Google and even calculators have caused temporary panic in the education space. Now that ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence tools are becoming a central part of our everyday lives, some educators are scrambling to rethink their curriculum. If you ask the artificial intelligence app, ChatGPT, to write you a 500 page essay on the themes in Moby Dick, in a matter of seconds, you'll have a well written paper. Even further, you can even tell ChatGPT “write me a 500 word essay on the themes of Moby Dick, in the voice of a 10th grader” and the essay will reflect the tone and language of the average 15 year old. When ChatGPT was first released, we took a deep dive into AI ethics and learned how it might education. And today, we get an update and we talk to teachers around the state and hear how they are actually utilizing AI in the classroom.

Today I'm bringing you a solo episode/ guest episode hybrid to talk all about photo organization and decluttering. This has been a highly requested topic, and I am far from an expert. When I look at digital files and photos, my mind just goes blank on where to start. I knew I needed help in this area, so I went in search of photo decluttering tools and discovered Mylio. I've been grateful to partner with them after using their software to help me get started in an overwhelming decluttering journey. Today I'm bringing you some general decluttering tips in getting started and chipping away at a very cluttered camera roll, and then I'm sharing some of how I use Mylio to help me do it, though many of these tips could be applied to any way you choose to declutter your photos- with or without an accompanying photo software/ decluttering tool. Then, David Vaskevitch joins me to share how Mylio's tools more in depth and how he declutters and organizes not just his digital photos, but also his paper clutter, physical photos, and more.
