Dogs Are Smarter Than People: Writing Life, Marriage and Motivation

When our daughter was little, she would shout, “Napping is for the weak!” Which was super annoying, obviously, but we've forgiven her. Despite for her love for Alexander the Great (who definitely took naps), she truly fed into the Western culture ideal that napping means that you're either weak minded or weak bodied. We as cultures are so anti-napping that we medicate our bodies with caffeine to make it through the day. The British have a four o'clock tea time. Sleep makes your brain work better. It's legit your body's best friend. And naps are a part of that. Imagine your health is a three-legged stool, right? One leg is sleep. One leg is eating healthy. One leg is exercise. We focus a lot of money and time on two of those legs, but blow off the third and that makes the whole damn stool wobbly.  Adults are meant to sleep between 6-10 hours a night. And according to the CDC, 1 in 3 Americans don't get six hours a night. So, that's a problem. All the self-help people say the same things. You want to go to sleep at the same time at night. You want to wake up at the same time. Set your damn alarm. Cover your windows, don't look at screens before bed. Blah. Blah. Blah. We hear it all the time. But how about a nap? How does this help things? It's all about the brain. Well, a brain has neural circuits. A neural circuit according to The Psychology Dictionary is “The structural arrangement of neurons and their interactions with each other when placed end-to-end. Circuits typically completed one task, such as forming a negative feedback loop opposed to multi-tasking.” A nap resets those circuits and that needs to happen. You want to not sleep more than 40 minutes, but at least five. And the best time to do that is in the afternoon usually, not close to your actual bedtime but after lunch like in many Southern European and South and Central American cultures. According to Will Parker at Scienceagogo.com, “New experiments by NIMH grantee Alan Hobson, M.D., Robert Stickgold, Ph.D., and colleagues at Harvard University show that a midday snooze reverses information overload and that a 20 percent overnight improvement in learning a motor skill is largely traceable to a late stage of sleep that some early risers might be missing. Overall, their studies suggest that the brain uses a night's sleep to consolidate the memories of habits, actions and skills learned during the day. The bottom line: we should stop feeling guilty about taking that “power nap” at work or catching those extra winks the night before our piano recital” When you nap, your limbic systems get all activated and that is the emotional center of the brain. So once it is activated it lowers monoamines, which actually are depression reducers. They reduce anxiety and are used to treat schizophrenia. Napping lowers the risk of heart attacks, strokes, diabetes. Naps are rock stars for making you feel better and healthier. That's why we talked about them back in May, too. Look, Alexander the Great never lost a battle in fifteen years, named dozens of cities after himself and he napped. You can, too. DOG TIP FOR LIFE Sparty the dog says that you should really revolve your life around your naps and not vice versa. RANDOM THOUGHTS Family living in children's museum with weapons . . . of course.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Connie Berry's dream of becoming an archaeologist ended when she learned there was more to it than discovering the tombs of lost pharaohs. Instead, she created the Kate Hamilton Mystery series, set in the UK and featuring an American antiques dealer with a gift for solving crimes. Her debut mystery, A Dream of Death, won the IPPY Gold Medal for Mystery and was a finalist for the Silver Falchion and Agatha awards. ABOUT THE BOOK - THE SHADOW OF MEMORY (Fourth in the Kate Hamilton Mystery series) As Kate Hamilton plans her upcoming wedding to Detective Inspector Tom Mallory, she is also assisting her colleague Ivor Tweedy with a project at the Netherfield Sanatorium, which is being converted into luxury townhouses. Kate and Ivor must appraise a fifteenth-century paintingand verify that its provenance is the Dutch master Jan Van Eyck. But when retired criminal inspector Will Parker is found dead, Kate learns that the halls of the sanatorium housed much more than priceless art.   Kate is surprised to learn that Will had been the first boyfriend of her friend Vivian Bunn, who hasn't seen him in fifty-eight years. At a seaside holiday camp over sixty years ago, Will, Vivian, and three other teens broke into an abandoned house where a doctor and his wife had died under bizarre circumstances two years earlier. Now, when a second member of the childhood gang dies unexpectedly—and then a third—it becomes clear that the teens had discovered more in the house than they had realized.

The gripping sequel to the dazzling first book in the Pentecost and Parker mystery series, set in 1940s New York. The perfect murder mystery for fans of Richard Osman and Robert Thorogood. New York, 1946: The last time Will Parker let a case get personal, she walked away with a broken face, a bruised ego and the solemn promise never again to let her heart get in the way of her job. But she called Hart and Halloway's Travelling Circus and Sideshow home for five years, and Ruby Donner, the circus' tattooed ingenue, was her friend. To make matters worse, the prime suspect is Valentin Kalishenko, the man who taught Will everything she knows about putting a knife where it needs to go. To uncover the real killer and keep Kalishenko from a date with the electric chair, Will and Ms. Pentecost join the circus in sleepy Stoppard, Virginia, where the locals like their cocktails mild, the past buried and big-city detectives not at all. The two swiftly find themselves lost in a funhouse of lies as Will begins to realise that her former circus compatriots aren't playing it straight and that her murdered friend might have been hiding a lot of secrets beneath all that ink. Dodging fistfights, firebombs and flying lead, Will puts a lot more than her heart on the line in the search of the truth. Can she find it before someone stops her ticker for good?

To help bring more stories to more readers, the publishing companies of Penguin Random House, Simon and Schuster, and MacMillan Publishers are allowing books that are normally unavailable for copyright reasons to be read out loud and shared with others until September 30, 2021.

Today's story is shared with permission of MacMillan publishing company. A book that has had a big impact on me and on what I think of as the standard of a wonderful and intriguing adventure story is The White Mountains, the first volume of a series by John Christopher. In this book, a powerful alien race that seem to inhabit huge three-legged creatures called Tripods have taken over the earth. Once a year, all the children who have turned fourteen years of age during the past year are taken up into the Tripods and mind controlling caps are embedded into their heads.

Earth 2089. A time of peace and contentment thanks to the benevolent rule of the Tripods, huge machine beings who "cap" teenagers to make them productive adults. Yet, Will Parker believes there is something very wrong with the world, and together with his cousin Henry, sets out on a quest to find the legendary Free Men and ultimately topple the Tripods. At its time it was the biggest SF production ever mounted by the BBC. Yet two years in it was unceremoniously cancelled, leaving its characters on a grim cliffhanger. Join Gareth, with guests Andrew Roe-Crines and Kevin Hiley as they take a deep dive into the John Christopher's celebrated SF trilogy. How does the series stand up today?

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was paused by the CDC after 6 patients were diagnosed with blood clots (cavernous sinus thromboses) several days after receiving their injection. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices met to discuss a way forward. Unfortunately, they made no recommendations regarding ending this pause. Dr. Will Parker and Dr. Govind Persad published an opinion piece in The Washington Post entitled, "Extending the Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause for a week was a deadly mistake". They discussed the extensive ramifications of a prolonging the pause based on these extremely low risks of complications. They argue that the ACIP does not have appropriate representation from a public health perspective. After presenting the article, I review the for basic principles of clinical medical ethics and how they are related to this issue.

We are very pleased that we were able to talk to Drew Murray about his latest book "Broken Genius." You'll find Drew at the intersection of technology and creativity, hard at work on creating another thrilling story. Passionate about tech, the forces that drive it, and the impact on our society, Drew created the Will Parker series both to entertain and examine the darker side of technology. Drew grew up in Southwestern Ontario, obtained an MBA from the Ivey Business School, and had a successful career in corporate technology before transitioning into investing and education. Drew has travelled throughout Europe, North America, South America and the South Pacific on business and pleasure. An avid story teller since he was a child, Drew has been an actor, an educator and now an author. "Broken Genius": In 2011, Will Parker, the young prodigy CEO of a big tech company makes a coding mistake that costs a college student her life. To assuage his guilt, Will pursues a career in the FBI Cyber Division. Now, Special Agent Will Parker is called to investigate a murder scene at a Comic Con event in the Midwest, where the victim has ties to a radioactive quantum computer that Will was working on before he left his gig as CEO. Working with smart local homicide detective Dana Lopez and FBI stuffed-shirt Thomas Decker, Will discovers the victim was holding an auction for the computer on the Dark Web—and the bidding is still live. With bidders including a legendary Chinese hacker, Russian criminals sent by the Kremlin, and a corporate executive desperate to escape a scandal, Will once again finds a life in his hands when the victim's daughter is taken hostage. A trail of blood and high-tech breadcrumbs leads Will deeper into mystery, danger, and a race against time to keep unlimited power out of the wrong hands.

On today's episode - we're back with the Maze to Marriage series with a new couple! Marriage - the thing society tells us to aspire to and the thing that is a lot more complicated than the world likes to tell us. Marriage is something that has been portrayed as a destination. To the outsider, life is a maze, and in your singleness, you're navigating the confusing path we call life. At the end of the path is your person and then you get married and you've exited the "maze" to marriage! That isn't the slightest bit true. In reality, marriage exposes your singleness and in this episode, we sit with Will Parker as he shares his story of what his singleness looked like, how singleness affected his love life, as well as how when God has his hand something, it can be fully redeemed and made new and whole. In this funny and impactful episode, we'll learn more about Will, his journey to meeting his wife Kaila, and how God has moved in every step. Part two features Will's wife, Kaila!

I am super excited whenever I get to talk with Will Parker, and today is no different. Today we are tackling three questions that principal listeners have shared with us from our podcasts, covering these topics:   What to do if or when your teachers give you the cold shoulder about learning something new.  How to manage student dynamics in competency-based instruction.  Ways to measuring student growth in Social Emotional Learning settings.   Listen-in for the complete conversation.   Questions for Jethro and Will:   1. My teachers give me the cold shoulder when I try to introduce them to new ways of teaching. What should I do?   Jethro and I discuss the following: Modeling for teachers Observation of other teachers What is he/she doing well already? Praise first, then instruct. Lead with the question, “Where do you want to grow?” Creating an enviornment where teachers ask for help Celebrating innovative teaching Learning to say yes before saying no   2. How do you make sure that students who struggle don't feel embarrassed or ashamed that they aren't working with their peers? When competency-based, what happens?...   We discuss this question with suggestions about: Defining expecations so that students measure against standards, not other students They are already in different places! Your expectations matter in their perceptions... Help them identify where they are good. And celebrate! It’s not about competition with peers, but competition with themselves.    3. How can Social Emotional Learning success be measured?   We respond with the following: Discover the importantce of self-reflection. It’s okay to embrace different standards for everyone.  Resilient students don’t really need more resiliency training. They need something else.  A student with trauma needs different things than a student without.  Creat an environment where you want your own chidren You can measure the indicators like discipline, attendance and graduation/completion rates  We share examples of SEL through FOMO -- karaoke cafeteria -- from Principal Kim Coody’s High School in Okahoma and Amy Fast’s emotional learning practices in Oregon Recource recommended: Barb Sorrels - http://transformativeprincipal.org/episode269       Now It’s Your Turn What is one new method or strategy you could model for your teachers or team? How can you instll in others the freedom to believe it’s okay to try and fail and in learning? And how can you celebrate the wins along the way?

Fresh out of drama school, actor Isaac Gryn is currently starring in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first hit musical Oklahoma! in the all-singing all-dancing role of Will Parker, rodeo lassoing champ and ardent suitor of flirty Ado Annie, the ‘Girl Who Can’t Say No’. As you might guess from his surname, Isaac is the grandson of the late, great Rabbi Hugo Gryn, Holocaust survivor and for decades the go-to media rabbi, with regular appearances on BBC Radio and deservedly much loved by folk of all faiths and none. Gryn has clearly inherited his grandfather’s warmth and charisma. It comes over in his terrific high energy performance, though whether Rabbi Gryn counted lassoing among his skills remains a secret. Here Gryn speaks to JR’s Arts Editor Judi Herman about the show, its creators and learning to lasso, as well as his faith, family and the legacy of his grandfather.Oklahoma! runs until Saturday 7 September. 7.30pm, 2.30pm (Wed & Sat only, plus some Thu). £10-£55.

Schedule a call with Jethro As a review for a year that has included a lot of changes for me professionally, I wanted to list some of the greatest events from the podcasts that I released this year. You can check out my current Top 10 podcasts here, but this list is going to talk about the top 10 things I implemented this year as a result of interviewing some amazing guests. Improving the school scheduling nightmare with Adam Pisoni Transformative Principal 185 The most downloaded podcast released this year is my interview with Adam Pisoni, where we talked about improving the school scheduling nightmare. Here’s my big takeaway. Adam said (5:58–8:35) that he started asking instead of asking what was possible in schools, he asked what prevents traditional schools from iterating. This train of thought led me to make a decision to intentionally combat those things that prevent us from iterating, and make sure we can still iterate even with the struggles we will face. Enjoy the Journey with Jethro Jones Transformative Principal 1035 - This one is a bit of a cheat, since the episode where I shared my 4 year plan for my school was really a culmination of so many things that I have learned from this podcast. But, here goes. (19:50–24:42) What’s cool is that instead of my plan starting next year, it is already starting this year. Advisory and flexible learning block with service learning. Teachers are coming to me asking for these things. Don’t Try to Change People, Change Behavior with Tom Hierck Transformative Principal 188 - 18:55–19:29 In this episode, it was really about the powerful thing that Tom shared about how to be a transformative principal. He said, “Ensure that relationships are healthy and positive. Being positive doesn’t guarantee a good outcome, but being negative does guarantee a negative outcome.” Rules turn students into classroom lawyers with Tom Hierck Transformative Principal 187 - In this episode, 5:00–7:26 I found that the most powerful statement from this was when Tom said, “I have yet to meet a kid who is connected who disappoints”. Since this interview, I have worked hard to make sure that kids are connected. I’ve found what he said is true, when kids are connected, they rarely disappoint. Last week, a student threw some trash across the cafeteria and he made a mess. He needed to clean it up. Because we had worked on a relationship, I put my arms out as if to say, “what are you doing?“ and then had to wait about 30 seconds before he decided to stand up and take care of his mess. He didn’t disappoint. What I Wish I Knew as A First Year Principal with Jethro and Friends Transformative Principal Special - The thing that I have taken away from this one is from my friend Jessica Cabeen.3:40–4:08 She says, Take care of yourself. While I haven’t been exercising as much this year as I have in the past, my sleep has been much better and I am doing a much better job of not working from home and actually being home when I am home. That is really important to me. End College and Career Readiness with Jethro Jones Transformative Principal 1040 - This podcast seems to have hit a nerve, as it was just released a couple months ago, and is already one of the most downloaded. In this, I basically argue that we need to focus on inspiring passion in our students rather than preparing them for something. One man I recently met is amazing. He said that he is a jack of all trades, master of one: learning. That really hit me. He didn’t learn how to do that from school, he says. He learned how to do that from his experience. He learned that learning is the most important thing he can have. In a recent Hack Learning episode, Mark Barnes said that learning can’t be measured. In our traditional system, you’re right, it can’t. But it can in our own lives, and we are the ones best suited to measure. I can’t measure all that I have learned from doing this podcast over the last four years in an easy-to-digest way. This post is an example of one way that I am trying to summarize my learning. One of my good friends Darren Draper posted on the Facebook post for this comment the question, “If everyone follows their passions, will society have the skilled workers it needs?” We had a little back and forth, that I encourage you to add your two cents to. My real point here is that if we teach kids how to learn on their own they will have more success in their life, regardless of what their passions or careers are. (1:48 –2:18) Instructional Leadership Team with David Smith Transformative Principal 182 - David Smith’s advice on how to be a transformative was to decide that you’re going to spend time in every classroom. 17:21–20:15 I have made this my priority this year, even to the tune of spending each morning before lunch in classrooms. I’m not perfect at it, but it is helping me do a much better job. Routines to Make Yourself More Successful with Karine Veldhoen Transformative Principal 160 - I have really gotten into routines this year and established some good ones. I’ve read the book she recommends and even went deep into The 1 Thing, about which I interviewed Geoff Woods. Look for that interview coming up soon. She talked about setting daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly practices. This is not easy. It really isn’t. It is actually kind of boring. In fact, Geoff Woods said that most people are unwilling to endure the monotony of success. Success is doing the right things at the right time. 8:26–9:46 - Self-care plans for her staff and for herself. One aspect of that that I have adopted is a habit to go to bed with my wife each night and not stay up late doing things for the podcast or other work, or playing games, or wasting time on Facebook. That is a small thing, but something that I think will really help me get to bed earlier, get rested, and spend quality time with my wife each night. With being so busy, it is easy to be distracted from the important things. Kids Can’t Learn When They Don’t Trust with Zaretta Hammond Transformative Principal 157 - 4:00–6:08 Trust Generators to quickly build trust. This has been really powerful as I have started my new school in Fairbanks. I have tried to be vulnerable with teachers to help build that trust so they know who I am. It’s not perfect, but we have been moving quicker than I expected in some areas, as I mentioned before. Where Jethro is interviewed for the Principal Matters Podcast with Will Parker - Bonus Episode 1033 21:45–22:53-The thing that sticks out from this interview is that 1, it was on Will Parker’s podcast, where he interviewed me. It was fun to release it at the same time. Number 2, Will asked me a big question, what do I want to achieve. My big goal is to impact 100 Million students over the next 10 years through my work on this podcast, my masterminds, speaking engagements, consulting, and everything else that I do. I had been thinking about setting a big goal before he asked me, but I wasn’t sure I could do it. So I took his challenge and set a goal. I’m tracking it here so please help me reach that goal by adding the impact this podcast has had on you to that survey. At the time of this writing, I am .021% of the way there. 21,412 kids have been impacted so far. WOW! That’s actually pretty amazing. Are you feeling like you are always behind at school? Do you feel like you need about 2 more hours each day to accomplish everything?

Importance of taking time off to recharge. The power of good mentors. Writing a letter of resignation. How to live without putting out fires all the time! Give instruction on the front end to make expectations more effective. Great teachers teach with both sides of their brains at once. More about KRAs (which we spoke about in Episode 24). Part 2 Dealing with difficult people. Make sure you are not the difficult person. Seek to understand before being understood. Be firm but friendly. Change your posture or use humor when appropriate. Agree to disagree. Consider bringing all parties to the table. What can I do to help you? Sometimes it is inevitable to have difficult conversations. Communicate privately with staff members when there is a difficulty. Big fan of just being honest. Talk straight with each other. Relationships are so important for every teacher and staff member. “It’s not an issue of me and you, it’s an issue of you and you.” Buy his book!
