Today Liz Scott shares the emotional and mental strategies behind creating a movement and focusing on inspirational and clear communication. Listen in as Laura and Lis discuss the origin of Alex's Lemonade Stand, how Liz navigates the line between inspirational and scientific communication, and the importance of self-care when leading and inspiring others over time. Liz Scott is the Co-Executive Director of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, but she is most proud of her title of "Mom" to three sons, Patrick, Eddie, and Joey, and daughter Alex. ALSF emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of Liz's daughter, Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for other children with cancer. In her lifetime, Alex would raise over $1 million before she passed away in 2004 at the age of 8. Since then, Liz and her husband Jay have worked alongside thousands of supporters across the country to carry on her legacy of hope. To date, ALSF has raised more than $200 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, having funded over 1,000 pediatric cancer research projects and assisted more than 10,000 families through their national support programs. Liz holds a BA in psychology from The University of Connecticut and honorary doctorates from Drexel University, Villanova University and Baylor School of Medicine. In addition to her work with Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, she also serves on the Board of Directors for The Cancer Couch Foundation.   You can connect with Liz via the website: https://www.alexslemonade.org/   To learn more about Dr. Laura Sicola and how mastering influence can impact your success go to https://www.speakingtoinfluence.com/quickstart and download the quick start guide for mastering the three C's of influence.   You can connect with Laura in the following ways: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/drlaurasicola LinkedIn Business Page: https://www.linkedin.com/company/vocal-impact-productions/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWri2F_hhGQpMcD97DctJwA Facebook: Vocal Impact Productions Twitter: @Laura Sicola  Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/vocalimpactproductions Instagram: @VocalImpactProductions See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

They have been an employee of Edward Jones for their total career. [8:01] Why should I listen to you? I've been a financial advisor and an entrepreneur for 20 years. And I have been through things like the worst, and we didn't just survive through that time; we have thrived. I can help people by really taking complex situations and helping them simplify them. [9:27] Sharing thoughts. Relationships are everything. And if you're focused on your relationships and your business that can get you through all kinds of things, it's amazing what happens.  [14:22] Entering the financial World. When I graduated from Villanova University, I was majored in finance but didn't have the confidence to go out on my own. I worked in corporate America for about ten years. I found Edward Jones and has spent his life as a financial adviser. I love the corporate world so grateful for relationships, but what ended up happening was that I enjoy this as I was given the advice. [16:27] Being Financial Advisor The best advisors are ones that have the long game in mind, not in trying to make a quick buck. The best just put the client's interests first. They have a process that that's a unique process where a lot of questions are asked. That's what we do. [20:48] Importance of discussion We're the quarterbacks when it comes to relationship management with all of those people that that are those professionals that are in our client's lives. We have the most wonderful women who work with me but all our work with all the important people to our clients. [29:06] What promise did God make to the world when He created you? I practice empathy. And the golden rule with every interaction I have with people is to treat others as you want to be treated. I continue to be kind to people who need that more than they ever have before. Key Quotes [18:46-18:54] “In helping others, I can make an impact for hundreds, if not 1000s of people.” [29:20-29:28] “The golden rule with every interaction I have with people is to treat others as you want to be treated.”   Connect with Dave Van Buskirk: Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davevanbuskirk Website: www.edwardjones.com/david-vanbuskirk

The latest book by Vladimir Alexandrov is a brilliant examination of the enigmatic Russian revolutionary, Boris Savinkov. Although now largely forgotten outside Russia, Boris Savinkov was famous, and notorious, both at home and abroad during his lifetime, which spans the end of the Russian Empire and the establishment of the Soviet Union. A complex and conflicted individual, he was a paradoxically moral revolutionary terrorist, a scandalous novelist, a friend of epoch-defining artists like Modigliani and Diego Rivera, a government minister, a tireless fighter against Lenin and the Bolsheviks, and an advisor to Churchill. At the end of his life, Savinkov conspired to be captured by the Soviet secret police, and as the country's most prized political prisoner made headlines around the world when he claimed that he accepted the Bolshevik state. Alexandrov argues that this was Savinkov's final play as a gambler, staking his life on a secret plan to strike one last blow against the tyrannical regime. To Break Russia's Chains: Boris Savinkov and His Wars Against the Tsar and the Bolsheviks (Pegasus, 2021) reads like a spellbinding thriller. Professor Alexandrov's biography of Boris Savinkov not only sheds light on one of the most fascinating figures in Russian history, but also prompts speculation about how the history of Russia may have played out differently if the former terrorist turned government minister had achieved his goals. Interview conducted by Lynne Hartnett, Associate Professor of History at Villanova University. Professor Hartnett is the author of The Defiant Life of Vera Figner: Surviving the Russian Revolution and is currently writing a book about Russian political exiles in Britain at the turn of the twentieth century.

Although the 15th and 19th Amendments to the Constitution enshrined the right to vote regardless of race and guaranteed women the right to vote more than 100 years ago, the struggle for Black women's suffrage and representation is ongoing, and the history of the struggle still relatively unknown today. We discuss that history on this week's episode, and highlight the key Black women figures throughout time who served as suffrage advocates, voters, and representatives—from Sojourner Truth to Shirley Chisholm. This panel features Nadia Brown, professor of government and chair of the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Georgetown University and Idol Family Fellow at the Anne Welsh McNulty Institute at Villanova University; Bettye Collier-Thomas, professor of history at Temple University and co-editor of African American Women and the Vote, 1837–1965; and Martha Jones, Society of Black Alumni Presidential Professor and professor of history at Johns Hopkins University and author of Vanguard. Lana Ulrich, senior director of content at the National Constitution Center, moderates the discussion. This program was made possible through the generous support of the McNulty Foundation in partnership with the Anne Welsh McNulty Institute for Women's Leadership at Villanova University.

Season 4, Episode 8 of Messy Jesus Business podcast, hosted by Sister Julia Walsh. "Once we surrender into that place of the Divine...we're moving in the waters of the holy."-Beverly Lanzetta LISTEN HERE: IN THIS EPISODE: Sister Julia Walsh talks with theologian, author and teacher Beverly Lanzetta how she lives out her call to surrender to the Divine and be a contemplative guide, and how loving and surrendering God can be an innate experience. "Once we surrender into that place of the Divine, we're not going against anything, we're moving in the stream, we're moving in the waters of the holy," Beverly explains. "And so the more humble we are the more we get a glimpse of what's possible...and that gives us a freedom to try to paint pictures of the sacred in the world and to plant seeds." They also talk about the mystery inherent to interspiritual and interreligious dialogue. "I think God is big enough to hold our various expressions, the ways in which God has come to us," Beverly says. They also explore the mess of living a spirtual life, and how God provides groundedness. "You know it's like digging in soil: our hands are going to get dirty, we're going to get dirt on our hands when we dig and plant the seeds," Beverly explains. ABOUT THE GUEST: Beverly Lanzetta is a theologian, contemplative scholar and teacher, and the author of many groundbreaking books on emerging universal spirituality and new monasticism. Dedicated to a vision of theological openness and spiritual nonviolence, her work is considered to be a major contribution to what theologian Ursula King called, “a feminine mystical way for the 21st century.”Beverly is also a vowed monk of peace living in the world and an interfaith chaplain. She has formed a community of new monks—single, married, partnered, celibate, etc.—dedicated to the universal mystical heart and to the spirituality of nonviolence. She has devoted much of her life to mentoring people who seek a deeper contemplative commitment and who wish to take personal monastic vows. She has taught theology at Villanova University, Prescott College, and Grinnell College. MESSY JESUS BUSINESS is produced and hosted by Sister Julia Walsh, and edited by Charish Badzinski.

The search for solutions to address climate change is urgent. People want action now, something that will move the needle. But every solution that's on the table has potential unintended consequences or tradeoffs involved. For example, wind power sounds like a great, clean option, but wind farms need space — where should they be located? A plan to construct them in the ocean is upsetting many fishermen and conservationists. Efforts to mine the ocean floor for precious metals needed to make batteries for renewables are scaring marine biologists. And an audacious plan to cool the earth through geo-engineering is making lots of folks very anxious. On this episode, we explore climate solutions, their potential drawbacks, and how we can carefully weigh the risks and benefits. Also heard on this week’s episode: We talk with environmental researcher Forrest Fleischman about why planting trees may not be the climate cure-all we think it is. Fleischman is an associate professor of environment and natural resource policy at the University of Minnesota. How do we cut fossil fuel emissions? One idea from the Biden administration is opening large-scale commercial offshore wind farms. But in New Jersey, Susan Phillips reports the planned wind farms occupy some of the most fertile fishing grounds in the nation, which has sparked a major fight. Erik Cordes, professor and vice chair of biology at Temple University in Philadelphia, joins us to discuss the pivotal — yet often forgotten — role the deep ocean plays in protecting us from some of the worst effects of climate change, along with a new threat facing it: deep sea mining. While countries struggle to cut carbon emissions, some scientists say it's time to study a more controversial, short-term measure — reflecting more sunlight away from the earth to cool the planet. Alan Yu reports. People spend a lot of time and effort fighting invasive plant species and trying to return landscapes to their previous state. Samantha Chapman, professor of biology at Villanova University and co-director of its Center for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Stewardship, joins us to discuss rethinking that approach.

Trainers, kicks, runners or whatever you like to call them are the subject of today's conversation with two Irish sporting icons. The big business of athletic shoes has boomed in the last 30 years beyond all recognition. Today's runner is expected and recommended to have not one but several pairs to wear on rotation throughout their training week. Jarlath asks Sonia if this is really necessary. Or are shoe companies deliberately making their running shoes less like all round trainers and more like specialised tools? Does the weekend Park Runner need a Swiss Army knife shoe rather than a shoe designed for Kipchogie to run a sub 2 hour marathon? Sonia weighs in with the shoes she loves from today's selection and the ones she loved back in Cóbh as a teen preparing to take on the world. We get her review of the London marathon and then Marcus O'Sullivan drops in for a quick shoes chat from Villanova University.

In episode 115 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast I speak with Bryan Buckley, Co-founder of Helmand Valley Growers Company and Battle Brothers Foundation, on bringing medical cannabis to military veterans dealing with PTSD and at significant risk of suicide.As a Special Operations Team Commander with Marine Raiders, Bryan led multiple teams in deployments to Operation Enduring Freedom-Trans Sahara (Africa), South East Asia, and Operation Enduring Freedom-Afghanistan (Helmand Province). Developed rapport with numerous host nation forces, enhanced capability and capacity within the host nation units, and briefed US Ambassadors. Led a 20 man Marine Raider Team to Afghanistan that mentored, trained, and conducted over 40 combat operations with an Afghan Special Operations Battalion. Bryan also deployed twice to Operation Iraqi Freedom with Marine Infantry and Marine Reconnaissance.Bryan, is an accomplished sales and operations leader. Distinguished background in leadership, policy, training, management, operations and strategic decision making. Adept in negotiation, alliance formation and organizational communication. Ability to forge productive partnerships among stakeholders and reach high-level decision makers within sophisticated organizations, ensuring free and productive flow of information. Counsel and assist those within and in association with governmental agencies, along with private sector, to adopt best practices in compliance with applicable regulations and statutes. Bryan is a graduate of Villanova University.  Awarded Bronze Star Medal with "Combat Distinguishing Device" for Heroic Service Awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds received during combat operations About Helmand Valley Growers Company(HVGC)The Helmand Valley Growers Company was founded by United States Special Operations Veterans (Marine Raiders). Since its inception, HVGC has been in discussions with some of the cannabis industry's top researchers and has developed a veteran based protocol to effectively prove the benefits of medical cannabis.Over time, and through HVGC presentations and seminars, the principles of HVGC realized a recreational brand will be a monetary success and will help fund the ultimate mission of HVGC, providing medical cannabis to the veterans of our United States Military.As a service disabled veteran owned business, HVGC is intimately aware of the daily challenges that veterans face as a result of their time spent on the battlefield. Some of these wounds are not visible to the naked eye.America is facing a wide-scale opioid epidemic that has taken countless lives; not excluded from this crisis, the veteran community has been critically impacted.When the U.S. Military deploys to the combat, roughly 60% of those deployed will be prescribed opioids upon return to the United States, and over half will develop a dependency/addiction.This has caused far too many vets to lose their way, and in an ever-increasing pandemic, take their own lives.HVGC began its outreach into the veteran community by observing first-hand and listening to the suffering of America's veterans. The founders knew right then that the cause was worthy; and that the mission was defined. The next step moved Bryan and the team into researching medical cannabis and speaking with the top experts in the field.As their research progressed, the answer to this crisis became clear: develop alternative medical solutions for those suffering with pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, sleep disorders, and most critically, are at significant risk of suicide. The recreational cannabis and branding will be used to assist in accomplishing these goals and ultimately serve as a profit center for HVGC.Medical Cannabis for PTSDIn 2014, a study published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, revealed that patients with PTSD experienced a 75-percent decrease in their symptoms upon using medical cannabis.However, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is mandated to follow federal regulations regarding cannabis. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies cannabis as a Schedule I substance, which makes the drug illegal on a federal level. As a result, the VA does not recommend cannabis as a treatment for veterans.Furthermore, cannabis use is prohibited at all VA medical centers, including facilities located in states where cannabis is legal.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:Partner with us - Learn moreImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

Initially, Christian measured the positions of stars on hundreds of photographic plates, but he later moved on to taking observations with the 24-inch refractor.During his time at Sproul Observatory, Christian developed a passion for showing the public celestial objects through their telescopes during monthly open houses. On those inevitable cloudy nights, he would present slideshows when people would show up anyway.Christian went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in Astronomy and Astrophysics from Villanova University where his passion for public outreach was reinforced as a teacher's assistant and presenter on weekly public viewing nights.While working at Space Telescope Science Institute, and later at NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center, Christian gave talks about the Hubble Space Telescope and other astronomy topics at venues ranging from schools, to community groups, to science fiction conventions. He continues to give talks to this day and has been known to make a video or two.Christian is now an instructor at the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop, where he helps teach writers, editors, filmmakers, and other creative professionals about astronomy.

Corporations Stay Silent on Abortion  Dating sites Match and Bumble—both based in Texas—are among the few companies to speak out against the law.

Historically Thinking: Conversations about historical knowledge and how we achieve it

Carrie Nation was, of course, a prohibitionist. But so was Leo Tolstoy, Czar Nicholas II, and Vladimir Lenin; in fact, the first nation to prohibit the sale of alcohol was Russia. The first Socialist Prime Minister of Sweden was an advocate for temperance, and so was Tomas Masaryk, liberal founding-father of Czechoslovakia.  As Mark Schrad writes in his new book Smashing the Liquor Machine: A Global History of Prohibition, around the globe the “temperance-cum-prohibition movement harnessed the forces of organized religions into a broad-based progressive movement to capture the instruments of legislation and statecraft against powerful, established political actors.” We can only understand American prohibition by realizing that it was just one part of a worldwide movement, advocated by people who often had little in common other than their interest in limiting alcoholism in their society. Moreover, as we discuss in the podcast, "prohibition" is a simple word that conceals much. While some advocates did press for the prohibition of the sale of liquor, others advocated temperance, which might take the form of advocating drinking beer instead of schnapps, or wine instead of brandy. There was never just one approach to dealing with the problems of alcoholism. Mark Schrad is Associate Professor of Political Science at Villanova University. This is his third book touching on some aspect of governmental policies towards alchohol, or networks promoting prohibition or temperance. He also restores old typewriters; that didn't come up in the conversation but, man, he has a very, very impressive collection.
