The reaction - to a move by Rishi Sunak to delay the government's green policies – has been mixed to say the least, with opposition parties slamming the prime minister's leadership as “weak” and the decision “damaging” for the climate. As net zero sceptics cheered there was criticism from some in the car industry and the more environmentally minded Conservative politicians. On the Sky News Daily, Niall Paterson is joined by our science correspondent Thomas Moore and Politico's UK editor Jack Blanchard for their analysis and a deeper look at what it all means politically, as well as for voters, industry and climate change. *While we've got you...please take a few moments to let us know your thoughts on our podcasts and your listening preferences by filling in a short survey - Click hereSenior podcast producer: Annie Joyce Podcast promotion producer: David Chipakupaku Editor: Wendy Parker

Sometimes the best business ideas are hereditary. And I don't mean family businesses. Every family has a secret sauce or skill: maybe a green thumb or a gift for gab. Turning the family tradition into a business may not be so easy — unless you've inherited the entrepreneurial gene. That's because everyone is trying to sell the family recipe these days. Especially in Acadiana, where every last name seems to have a seasoning blend. But not every spice entrepreneur knows krav maga, like Kisha Formica. Spice Kisha is maybe best known for Kitchen Bravo, her online cooking and recipe brand. It started as a hobby, a way to share her love of cooking with the world wide web. But it's also become a vehicle to sell Gunpowder Spice, based on a blend developed by her grandfather, who was an avid game hunter. The product has been a family staple for decades, but it was Kisha who brought it to market in 2022, packaging it in a bottle shaped like a shotgun shell and a pair of dueling pistols — all of it a nod to her grandfather's love of hunting. Kisha is from the Lafayette area and also teaches krav maga. Skincare If you pick up a product by Bea's Bayou Skincare, you're buying a little homage to Arielle Brown's grandmother, Beatrice. Beatrice was an herbalist and an entrepreneur in her own right, known for her legendary pies. When Arielle began making skin products, she turned to her grandmother's gift for horticulture for inspiration. The result: a line of creams, serums and solutions made with Louisiana plants like saw palmetto, blue green algae, sassafras, nettle and sugar cane. Arielle's flagship product — Good Biome Scalp Relief Solution — was developed as a salve for her own skin issues. The solution took off on Etsy and spurred Arielle to expand her product line. Arielle has turned the concept into a successfully formula, winning thousands in funding from pitch competitions like Fund Black Founders and the Essence and Aveeno Skin Health Pitch. Arielle is also a social worker and real estate agent and grew up in Lafayette. Out to Lunch Acadiana was recorded live over lunch at Tsunami Sushi in downtown Lafayette.

Today we join Tina Hollenbeck. Author of 8 Great Smarts for Homeschoolers and creator of The Homeschool Resource Roadmap. This podcast was originally recorded as 1 interview which I split up into 2 parts. The first part covers Tina's story and how she got into homeschooling after being a teacher for many years. Throughout her story we learn that the journey that led her to creating the Homeschool Resource Roadmap actually started off as a 'little' personal project jumpstarted from Common Core making an appearance. Don't stop there though, be sure to stick around for part 2 as we go into the different styles of homeschooling and the book she wrote; 8 Great Smarts for Homeschoolers! TINA HOLLENBECK BIO:Tina and her husband Jeff educated their Irish-Twin daughters from home for the girls' whole lives, graduating them together in Spring 2020. Tina began actively advocating for homeschooling parents in March 2013, with the creation of her free curriculum database, The Homeschool Resource Roadmap. From that foundation, she subsequently created other resources, including a homeschool-parent resource center for home educators in her local area and an online discussion group that connects Christian homeschoolers across the country. She's also written a book, 8 Great Smarts for Homeschoolers, published by Moody Publishers in August 2021. When not thinking or talking about homeschooling, Tina cheerleads for her husband, daughters, and son-in-law; laughs at her cats' antics; cherishes the opportunity to serve on her church's worship team; and dotes on her first grandchild, born in December 2022. Resources: Tina's website: https://www.homeschoolroadmap.org/ Israel Wayne has several books for homeschoolers, including Education: Does God Have an Opinion? He is a homeschool grad (his mom homeschooled his siblings and him before it was legal as a single mom!) and current homeschool dad himself. The pastor mentioned who strongly advocates for homeschooling is Voddie Baucham. When You Rise Up by RC Sproul Jr. The literature “guide”/book list Honey for a Child's Heart (by Gladys Hunt) (andHoney for a Teen's Heart too). The “style quiz” is here: https://eclectic-homeschool.com/homeschool-philosophies-quiz/ Tina's podcast has two versions: 94 episodes of The Homeschool Loftcast and The Homeschool Loftcast 2.0. They're both available on all the typical platforms, but here are the links from Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-homeschool-loftcast/id1570355117 and https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-homeschool-loftcast-2-0/id1691159818. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/anna-brayton/support

When writer / director Seth Ferranti received a twenty-five year LSD kingpin conviction, after faking his suicide and landing on the US Marshals Top-15 Most Wanted list, he thought his life was over. As a first time, non-violent offender, the lengthy sentence attracted media attention from The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, The Washington Times, and others. Turning despair into drive, Ferranti earned an associates, bachelors, and masters degree while in prison and started penning prison and gangster stories for VICE, Don Diva, FEDS, Hoopshype and others. He became a true-crime publisher from the cell block and built a website and publishing house, Gorilla Convict, that documented stories that the mainstream media was not willing to share. In February 2015, after serving 21 years, he was released from the Bureau of Prisons, to seek his fortune. Back in the world Ferranti continued his writing career as a journalist penning pieces for VICE, OZY, The Daily Beast, Dazed, MERRY JANE, and features for Penthouse and Real Crime Magazines, among others. He also embarked on his true passion, filmmaking. Ferranti joined forces with Shawn Rech and Transitions Studios to make WHITE BOY, a top ten Netflix feature documentary on Richard Wershe Jr. Seth also starred in the season one finale of VICE's I WAS A TEENAGE FELON. Modeling himself as the Quentin Tarantino of documentaries, he currently has four documentary projects in production and three in post at his studio OUTLAW FILMS. It appears there is no stopping him…

Ever craved the thrill of a last-minute concert dash? We found ourselves at the heart of an electrifying experience - the Neyo, Mario and Pleasure P concert. We laughed, we danced, we almost ended up on stage, and we're here to share the whole exhilarating journey with you. Music and dance have evolved through the generations and we're embracing the rhythm of change. It's a wild ride, so buckle up for a tuneful trip!Turning the beat down a notch, we address societal issues worth contemplating. Why are men reclining into dependence as women rise as independent powerhouses? Are societal norms shifting, or is accountability slipping through? The influence of mothers, the paradox of increasing female earnings, and the intriguing concept of men's responsibility to protect women - it's a discussion you won't want to miss. But we promise, amid the serious conversation, we've sprinkled in laughs, from Armie Hammer's bizarre comments to Flash movie musings.Finally, we strike a chord on popular love and relationship artists, exploring how the representation of sex has spun the music industry on its axis. We dissect celebrity relationships, societal expectations and even why people fall for bogus GoFundMe campaigns. Join us as we analyze the impact of online scams on genuine causes and question what's behind our susceptibility to these false narratives. So, are you ready for a mixtape of music, societal reflections and hilarious commentary? Let's turn the volume up!Please Like♥️, Share

Chapter 1 - The Boy Who LivedHe hurried to his car and set off home, hoping he was imagining things, which he had never hoped before, because he didn't approve of imagination.“You can't blame them,” said Dumbledore gently, “We've had precious little to celebrate for eleven years.”Q1 - What are your general impressions of McGonagall, Dumbledore, Hagrid, and the Dursleys?Q2 - Why can McGonagall transform into a cat? And if you could transform into an animal which would you choose?Q3 - Why do you think Voldemort could not kill Harry?Q4 - Do you think Dumbledore was right to separate Harry from the magical world?“You think it – wise – to trust Hagrid with something as important as this?” “I would Trust Hagrid with my life,” said Dumbledore.“Yes, yes, it's all very sad, but get a grip on yourself, Hagrid, or we'll be found,” Professor McGonagall whispered, patting Hagrid gingerly on the arm…“Good luck, Harry,” he murmured.Q5 - What year do you think all this happened?Q6 - Is Dumbledore irresponsible for leaving Harry on the doorstep with just a letter?Q7 - Why do you think it took so long for Dumbly and Hagrid to get to Privet Drive?Chapter 2 - The Vanishing GlassNearly ten years had passed since the Dursleys had woken up to find their nephew on the front step, but Privet Drive had hardly changed at all. The sun rose on the same tidy front gardens and lit up the brass number four on the Dursleys' front door; it crept into their living-room, which was almost exactly the same as it had been on the night when Mr Dursley had seen that fateful news report about the owls. Only the photographs on the mantelpiece really showed how much time had passed. Ten years ago, there had been lots of pictures of what looked like a large pink beach ball wearing different-coloured bobble hats – but Dudley Dursley was no longer a baby, and now the photographs showed a large, blond boy riding his first bicycle, on a roundabout at the fair, playing a computer game with his father, being hugged and kissed by his mother. The room held no sign at all that another boy lived in the house, too. Yet Harry Potter was still there, asleep at the moment, but not for long. His Aunt Petunia was awake and it was her shrill voice which made the first noise of the day. ‘Up! Get up! Now!'Q1 - Who is the nastiest to Harry?‘Well, get a move on, I want you to look after the bacon. And don't you dare let it burn, I want everything perfect on Duddy's birthday.' Harry groaned. Q2 - When you were a kid what was your favorite breakfast?He liked to complain about things: people at work, Harry, the council, Harry, the bank, and Harry were just a few of his favorite subjects. This morning, it was motorbikes.Q3 - Out of all the magical things Harry can do in chapter 2, which do you think was the coolest?Hair GrowthShrinking SweaterAppearing on the roofTalking with a snakeMaking the glass disappearQ4 - What are your first thoughts about Harry?Q5 - What was the best birthday gift you ever got?Q6 - Do you think it's normal for a wizard to be able to talk to snakes?He'd lived with the Dursleys almost ten years, ten miserable years, as long as he could remember, ever since he'd been a baby and his parents had died in that car crash. He couldn't remember being in the car when his parents had died. Sometimes, when he strained his memory during long hours in his cupboard, he came up with a strange vision: a blinding flash of green light and a burning pain on his forehead. This, he supposed, was the crash, though he couldn't imagine where all the green light came from. He couldn't remember his parents at all. His aunt and uncle never spoke about them, and of course he was forbidden to ask questions. There were no photographs of them in the house. Q7 - What is this flash of green light and pain on his forehead?Chapter 3 - The Letters From No OneQ1 - Do you think the knobbly sticks are a useful teaching/character building tool?“What's this?” he asked Aunt Petunia. Her lips tightened as they always did if he dared to ask a question. “Your new school uniform,” she said. Harry looked at the bowl again. “Oh,” he said. “I didn't realize it had to be so wet.”Three things lay on the doormat: a postcard from Uncle Vernon's sister Marge, who was holidaying on the Isle of Wight, a brown envelope that looked like a bill and – a letter for Harry? Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter ‘H'. Q2 - Why do the Dursleys not want him to get this letter?Q3 - Do you think you can “stamp out” being a wizard? What do you think happens to people who suppress their magic?He hoped the roof wasn't going to fall in, although he might be warmer if it did. Four minutes to go. Maybe the house in Privet Drive would be so full of letters when they got back that he'd be able to steal one somehow.Q4 - Do you wonder if these letters are duplicated by magic or if Hogwarts is handwriting all these letters to Harry?Q5 - How would you have gotten the letter if you were Harry?Monday. This reminded Harry of something. If it was Monday – and you could usually count on Dudley to know the days of the week, because of television – then tomorrow, Tuesday, was Harry's eleventh birthday. Of course, his birthdays were never exactly fun – last year, the Dursleys had given him a coat-hanger and a pair of Uncle Vernon's old socks. Still, you weren't eleven every day. Q6 - What's your most memorable birthday?One minute to go and he'd be eleven. Thirty seconds ... twenty ... ten – nine – maybe he'd wake Dudley up, just to annoy him – three – two – one – BOOM. The whole shack shivered and Harry sat bolt upright, staring at the door. Someone was outside, knocking to come in. Q7 - What's going to happen next?

In this 50th episode celebration, Liz and Michelle chat about turning 50 themselves and the idea of making a 50 at 50 list. They are then joined by celebrity journalist Suzanne Baum who shares some of her own 50 at 50 list, including facing her fears of heights. Suzanne opens up about her career interviewing huge names like David Beckham and Amanda Holden, and how she has used her platform for important issues like the Nicola Bulley case. She gives advice to aspiring journalists and talks about embarrassing moments, dream interviewees, and how certain hard-hitting stories have affected her. An insightful look into the world of journalism and the power of being your true self after 50. KEY TAKEAWAYS Suzanne has built great celeb relationships through integrity e.g. not sensationalising, but she also enjoys breaking real news stories. Turning 50 has given Suzanne the courage to stand up to dodgy media outlets and represent brands she believes in. Mind over matter is key to Suzanne facing fears like heights for her 50 at 50 list. The Nicola Bulley story and talking to people affected by Covid were emotionally tough for Suzanne as a journalist. Suzanne's dream interviewee is the Spurs football team to impress her kids! Peter Andre and Amanda Holden are two of the nicest celebs Suzanne has interviewed. Suzanne's advice for aspiring journalists is don't do it for the money, focus on digital skills, and always research your subject. BEST MOMENTS "I think it makes the reader be able to relate to you as well because you're talking about something so personal and so tragic, I think makes it really meaningful." "I'll tell you what trips me up is the pronunciation of names. So, Virgil van Dyck, who I was interviewing last week, he's... a very famous Liverpool player with 40 million followers. I kept thinking, oh my god, I'm so gonna just say, I'm gonna say his name wrong." But age is a gift and you know every day that we do get it. It's a wonderful thing that we get to do things like this, like the podcast, reinvent ourselves in our lives over 50. If you enjoyed this episode, please rate, and review it on your podcast platform.

Remembrew When goes back in time to the Milwaukee Braves and perhaps the greatest pitching performance ever. Curt Blanche questions a popular belief about the Brewers' struggles on offense. Then, JR has a conversation with 2023 first-round draft pick Brock Wilken, who appeared in Milwaukee early last week before heading to Class AA Biloxi.

I'm so excited that Michelle Icard is back today to chat about her newest book: 8 Setbacks That Can Make a Child a Success. Michelle shares with me how parents can best support their adolescents through setbacks and why we can't swoop in to fix everything for them. She explains her three steps to take when dealing with a problem: contain, resolve, & evolve, and we touch on where consequences show up. Kids are always going to make more mistakes, and it's critical that we allow children to learn from those mistakes. Michelle and I tease apart how much credit we take for our kids' behavior - good and bad, and we talk about how hard it can be to balance staying “fiercely committed & lovingly detached” to our teens. Michelle has an awesome analogy about how toughening up our teens & encouraging grit is like a greenhouse keeper hardening their plants. We agree that we don't need to create a tough environment for our kids though - that already exists, and we end sharing a few successes & outcomes that can follow the hard times. Takeaways from the show Setbacks and failures make us smarter and better How to best support your adolescent through setbacks Mistakes are opportunities to learn 3 steps to take while dealing with failure Kids & teens must learn through their own experiences Kids are going to continue to make mistakes - that doesn't mean they aren't learning Your kids aren't part of your brand “Fiercely committed, lovingly detached” Children shouldn't be burdened by our emotions How can teens toughen up & build resiliency For more show notes, including transcripts, see our website here.

In an era of constant cyber threats, organizations can no longer view cybersecurity solely as a cost center. Businesses can turn it into a profit center by adopting a proactive approach and leveraging cybersecurity as a strategic asset. Whether through customer trust, offering cybersecurity services, monetizing threat intelligence, engaging in cybersecurity insurance, capitalizing on compliance efforts, protecting intellectual property, or providing education and training, the opportunities to generate revenue from cybersecurity initiatives are abundant. Embracing these strategies enhances the bottom line and strengthens an organization's overall resilience in the face of evolving cyber threats. Today, cybersecurity is not just a cost to bear but a valuable asset to cultivate for long-term profitability and success. In today's podcast, Chris Moschovitis from Technology Management Group and Steven Halasnik from Financing Solutions (https://financingsolutionsnow.com/) discuss Turning cybersecurity from a cost to a profit center.

Well, Spring is tornado time, and there were some Mississippi folks at the conference we were at getting some pretty scary reports from back home. There were friends in a ministry organization we know of who were deeply wounded by the death of a coworker and daughters in Arkansas. One of the daughters who survived that twister quoted the Book of Job, the biblical man who lost everything. Here's what she wrote: "The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." Somehow, that girl's faith was sustaining her amid a horrific loss. I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "Where's God in the Tornadoes?" There were some others during that outbreak who responded with tragedy's frequent heart cry. "Why, God?" We try to make sense of the shattered pieces of our life. We can't. We want answers from God. Sometimes "Why, God?" is a cry for help. But "Why, God?" might be the wrong question. I think most of the "why's" are hard to see in the middle of the pain. We're looking at the dark thread that we're living right now. Meanwhile God's working on this much larger tapestry that my thread is a part of. And the thread often cannot make sense without the big tapestry, which we won't see for a while. Maybe not until God shows it to us Himself some day. But there is a question I've resorted to in the dark valleys. A question that may have some answers - sooner rather than later. Here's the question: "How can God use this?" See, turning from God in our devastation erases any hope of the suffering having any meaning. That road takes us to dark places of bitterness and despair. Turning to God is the only road to hope when we have no answers. I saw my parents heartbroken when my baby brother died. But I saw their lives totally transformed when their grief actually drove them to the God who had been a stranger to my parents before. It was a tragedy that seemed initially to have no "why." But it was a tragedy that God used to give me a new mom and dad. See, I saw from a very early age, there was purpose in the pain. I know it's been grief and pain that have taught this spoiled only child right here the meaning of compassion. As it says in 2 Corinthians 1:4, "We comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." People who know what it is to be broken have the credentials to be healers in a hurting world. And, like my parents, our darkest hour may be when we find the Light as never before in the God who came from a perfect heaven to be broken by the people He had made. I can tell you this, He was and has been my anchor since the day my wife, the love of my life since I was nineteen, was suddenly gone. And I said later, "I will not waste this grief." And God has been the anchor through it all. In our word for today from the Word of God, in God's own words in Isaiah 53:3-5, speaking of Jesus, it says, "He was crushed...He was pierced...a man of sorrows, familiar with suffering." Paying my bill with God. That's what Jesus was doing so I wouldn't have to pay it forever; choosing to die so I could live. This is a God who's lived our grief, who carries us when we can't take another step. Who went through all of the pain, all of the hell that I deserve. All the payment of my sin, all of the guilt and shame for one simple purpose: so that I could be with Him forever and have the wall between me and God removed. Could it be the storm you're in right now has been to bring you to the place where you would grab the long-extended hand of Jesus, who's offered it for so many years? And now you grab Him and make Him your Savior from your sin and you will never face a storm alone again. If you want to get that done, would you go to our website? I think we could help you. It's ANewStory.com. When our shattered soul reaches in desperation for this God who hung on a cross for us, we find what that old song describes - grace... amazing grace.
