Episode summary In this chaotic world, our first duty as mothers should be to make our home a sanctuary—a tranquil place where learning and creativity thrive. That's why it's vital that we guard our schedule. It's such a blessing that there are so many wonderful activities, opportunities, and curricula to choose from. But with so many choices, we are at risk of adding things that are not God's best for us. In this talk, Jeannie Fulbright will share the mistakes that taught her to guard her schedule, and how God shows us when we should say yes and when we should say no.

In today's conversation with Jason Kingsley, we talk about how you can turn your hobby into a business by simply following your passion. For Jason, building a company from hobby to business started from a desire to get better at the things he loves.When Jason Kingsley started out, it really wasn't possible to build a company in the gaming industry. Computers were still in their infancy.But he fell in love with computers from an early age, and eventually started to develop games with his brother. Jason wanted to become a creative entrepreneur, something that represented a whole new area of exploration for him.He ended up going to Oxford and getting a degree in Zoology because he saw it as something sensible to do. But all the while, he continued to work on video games. Jason Kingsley never gave up on the idea that you can turn your hobby into a business.But he wasn't always business-savvy and didn't have it in mind to transform a hobby to business when he was first working on his passion. In fact, as he explains it, he had to learn entrepreneurship on the job while building a company.The key to his success lies in his approach. He takes all of his hobbies very seriously, always striving to be the best that he can be. From that passionate attitude toward his pursuits, companies have generally followed.With Rebellion, Jason Kingsley wasn't only able to create one of the most successful independent video game studios in the world, he was also able to do something perhaps even more important: he's shown that it's possible to turn your hobby into a business, and pursue something you love.When building a company, start with passion.

To focus on Ireland's national marine research vessels, the Celtic Voyager and Celtic Explorer, Oceans of Learning made collaboration between the Marine Institute and Government departments and organisations across Ireland. The RV Celtic Voyager came into service in 1997 as Ireland's first custom-built multi-purpose research vessel. Her purpose was to facilitate the sustainable development of the country's vast marine resources. In 2003, the RV Celtic Explorer was commissioned as Ireland's first deep-sea research vessel. At the time of its launch, the Celtic Explorer was the quietest research vessel in the world, meeting international underwater noise requirements essential for fisheries research. National Marine Research Dr Paul Connolly, CEO of the Marine Institute said, “The Celtic Voyager and Celtic Explorer have been central to the Marine Institute's work and research, enabling us as a nation to engage in high-quality marine science and to actively contribute to international research programmes. “The new national marine research vessel, RV Tom Crean, comes into service in 2022, replacing the Celtic Voyager. As we look forward to a bright future with the Tom Crean and Celtic Explorer, we take a moment to appreciate the legacy of the Celtic Voyager. The vessel has served us well over the past quarter of a century, providing marine scientists, researchers and crew members with many years of experience at sea, and enabling us to deepen our ocean knowledge.” The RV Celtic Voyager replaced the 21 metre RV Lough Beltra, which had originally been a fishing trawler. Upgrading to a 31-metre research vessel was the beginning of a new era in marine science in Ireland, as the Marine Institute was able to provide a purpose-built platform that could operate further out in Ireland's ocean territory. The research vessel has played an essential role in fisheries scientific research, and a vital role in seabed mapping in Irish waters, as part of the INFOMAR programme. More than 200 shipwrecks around the coast of Ireland including the RMS Lusitania, have been mapped by the Celtic Voyager. In 2007, the survey of Galway Bay revealed for the first time a detailed seafloor and geology of the bay, confirming the location of the Galway Bay Fault. Over close to 25 years, the Celtic Voyager has completed more than 600 surveys, enabled more than 5,000 science days and sailed more than 400,000 miles. The 65 metre RV Celtic Explorer is designed for fisheries acoustic research, oceanographic, hydrographic and geological investigations as well as buoy/deep water mooring and ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) Operations. The vessel has a maximum endurance of 35 days offshore and can accommodate up to 35 personnel, including 20-22 scientists. Expeditions on the RV Celtic Explorer in Irish and international waters have resulted in many exciting discoveries – from deep-water shark nurseries, and cold-water coral reefs, to hydrothermal vents fields in the mid-Atlantic. Oceans of Learning As part of Oceans of Learning, the Marine Institute's Voyages video series profiles the people whose work is intertwined with Ireland's national research vessels. Voyages shares insights into the people behind the science of our seas – Dr Louise Allcock, Professor of Zoology at NUI Galway, and David O'Sullivan, INFOMAR Programme at the Marine Institute – modern explorers on a voyage of discovery to safeguard the ocean and our future. The Oceans of Learning series on marine.ie offers online interactive activities, videos and downloadable resources all about our ocean. A #SeaToMe social competition will encourage people across Ireland to share what the sea means to them for the chance to win weekly prizes. Through Oceans of Learning, the Marine Institute comes together with Government Departments and organisations across Ireland including Bord Iascaigh Mhara, Bord Bia, Met Éireann, Commissioners of Irish Lights and EPIC Irish Emigration Museum, to celebrate and highlight the v...

Can we build a Dolittle Machine, a piece of technology that will let us converse with the animals of planet Earth? Science fiction writer Matthew De Abaitua investigates how the latest advances in AI mean that this is now more in the realms of the possible, rather than in the purely fantastical. Starting in his garden with two cats, he finds himself in a tropical forest with big-brained hook-wielding birds, surveying multidimensional neural networks, and meets a woman who found out about her pregnancy from a dolphin.

In episode #107, Brandi sat down with Nike Spaulding as they discussed textual criticism.Nika is a proud graduate of both the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's in Zoology and Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master's of Theology. God has given her the privilege of planting a church in Oak Cliff called St Jude Oak Cliff, and she loves her role as the Resident Theologian.When she's not cheering on her Sooners, playing with her cat Clive, or enjoying a good meal with her friends, she's probably sneaking off to Oklahoma to snuggle with her favorite humans: her nieces and nephew.Nika and Brandi spent some time nerding out over the Bible as she explained how we ended up with a bible. She answers her the question “Can we trust the Bible?” We discuss how no other piece of literature is this well preserved, and despite man's fallibility of mistranslating a few different words of the Bible, there is no discrepancy in the actual gospel. Our favorite takeaway was learning that The bible is the #1 selling book each year. Nika leaves with us an excerpt from John 5 as Jesus is talking to religious pharisees who are experts of the scriptures:“You search the scriptures because in them you think you find eternal life, but I'm telling you they testify about me.”She shares that this is Jesus telling us , “that the Bible is not another task that is put on Christians to do. It is the Narnian wardrobe into Who God is, and as you search it, you will find that you encounter a God who loves you more than you can fathom, is more Good than you can understand, and has more in store for you than you can imagine.”Resources that Nika recommends in this episode are The Message Bible www.messagebible.comThe Bible Project podcast and YouTube www.bibleproject.comGod on Tap Podcasthttps://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/god-on-tap/id1472958206You can follow Nika Spaulding on IG @nikaadidasIf you haven't written a review yet, please stop what you're doing.

Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 5-6-22. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the weeks of May 9 and May 16, 2022.   This episode from is part of a series this year of episodes related to trees and shrubs. MUSIC – ~14 sec – instrumental. That's part of “New Spring Waltz,” by the late Madeline MacNeil, who was a well-known and highly regarded musician based in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Each new spring brings a chance to focus on the life cycles of wildlife.  This mid-spring episode of Water Radio explores some connections among nesting birds, trees, and water.  Have a listen for about 30 seconds to three mystery sounds, and see if you know these three bird species who nest in trees near water, either always or at least sometimes.  And here's a hint: you'll be singing a melodious trill, if you hit this mystery out of the park. SOUNDS  - 29 sec. If you guessed two warblers and an oriole, you're right!  And you get bodacious bird bragging rights if you recognized, first, the Prothonotary Warbler; second, the Northern Parula, also a kind of warbler; and third, the bird for which Baltimore's baseball team is named, the Baltimore Oriole.  All three of these songbirds are found in Virginia in the spring and summer breeding season.  During that period, the Prothonotary Warbler is common in Virginia's central and southern Coastal Plain and can occasionally be found in some other parts of the Commonwealth; the Baltimore Oriole is common outside of the Coastal Plain; and the Northern Parula is common statewide.  The three species show a range of attachment to water-side trees as their nesting habitat.  The Prothonotary Warbler is particularly known for nesting in cavities in trees around water; in fact, the bird is sometimes called the “Swamp Warbler” in the southeastern United States.  The Northern Parula typically nests in trees along rivers and wetlands, especially in areas where it can find the materials it prefers for making its hanging nests: Spanish Moss or a kind of stringy lichen; this bird is also known to make nests out of debris left in trees after floods.  The Baltimore Oriole is the least water-attached of these three species, being found nesting high in trees in many areas outside of deep woods, including parks and yards; however, streamsides are among the species preferred areas for the bird's fibrous, hanging nests. If you're near streams, rivers, or wetlands and you see or hear any of these three birds, look to nearby trees for cavities or hanging materials that may be harboring the birds' next generation. Thanks to Lang Elliott for permission to use the bird sounds, from the Stokes Field Guide to Bird Songs.  Thanks also to Janita Baker of Blue Lion Dulcimers and Guitars for permission to use Madeline MacNeil's music, and we close with about 25 more seconds of “New Spring Waltz.” MUSIC – ~26 sec – instrumental.

Welcome to Season 6 of The Charlotte Mason Show!  In this episode, Julie Ross sits down with long-time homeschooler and curriculum author Jeannie Fulbright to discuss what first led Jeannie to the Charlotte Mason method.  Now that Jeannie is an empty-nester, she shares about the exciting resources she is creating for the homeschool community.  Make sure you stick around until the end of this episode to hear an exciting podcast announcement! Guest biography Jeannie Fulbright, a 24-year veteran homeschooler, is the author of the #1 best-selling, multi award-winning Apologia Young Explorer science series: Exploring Creation with Astronomy, Chemistry and Physics, Botany, Zoology, and Anatomy & Physiology. She is also the author of the action-packed historical time travel book series Rumble Tumbles Through Time, as well as preschool science books and activity kits, the Charlotte Mason Heirloom Planner, and many high-quality Charlotte Mason based products. Jeannie and her husband Jeff became empty nesters in 2019. All four of their children all went to the University of Georgia on scholarship (homeschooling works!). For more than 20 years Jeannie has traveled around the country speaking to homeschoolers at conventions, covering a plethora of topics from Charlotte Mason to marriage and prayer.  Host biography Julie H.

What's the difference between a vet and a vet nutritionist? Both have an in-depth knowledge of the diseases that can affect our dogs, but nutritionists focus on food as the basis of their treatment plans. Dr. Bullen explains how every patient is a puzzle with unique nutritional needs, and how she uses chemistry, math, and both patient and owner preferences to come up with solutions that can help dogs feel better and live healthier lives. We are very excited to have Dr. Bullen as a guest on the show, as veterinary nutritionists are few and far between! She shares many tips from her experiences, including the diagnostic tests that are most helpful when formulating a custom diet, how to get a sick dog to eat, and when to enlist the help of a nutritionist. And of course, we ask her what SHE looks for when recommending a diet for one of her patients with cancer. Links Mentioned in Today's Show: Entyce American College of Veterinary Nutrition Directory VetScoop Related Links: Diet and Dogs with Cancer article About Today's Guest, Dr. Lindsey Bullen: Dr. Lindsey Bullen earned her BA in Chemistry and BS in Zoology in 2007.

Following board-certification in veterinary nutrition, in 2017 Lindsey created the Clinical Nutrition Service at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of the Carolinas. 2022 brings new opportunities as Dr. Bullen is actively creating a Clinical Nutrition Service at Friendship Hospital for Animals in the DC area. Dr. Bullen is particularly interested in clinical nutrition application, specifically: critical care, multi-disease state, and assisted feeding. Though she is no longer in academia, Dr. Bullen brings experience and a strong passion for teaching. And when she is not actively working in clinics or speaking at conferences, Dr. Bullen acts as an industry advisor and consultant through her company, Bullen Veterinary Consulting, PLLC. Lindsey grew up in a small town near Asheville, North Carolina. Though not quite a full native of this beautiful state, she is happy to still call it home.
