Marketing Your Self-Published Book With Awards
"So we're going to start out with number one awards programs now. This applies to some. Not all you probably saying. Hang on a second you just. You told me that. I'm going to do a book award now. The book awards could be my way of marketing. Absolutely believe it or not. There's a lot of book awards out. There that will showcase all of their winners on a site. They will share it across social media. Heck there's even some other marketing and promotional opportunities for instance. I've done a couple book awards where they've given me editorial reviews that could then use and other areas so that part was really kinda cool. You got to dig and sift through some of the awards to figure out what's going to be the best fit or you should get book award pro. I'm just going to go ahead. And just over that. Because i don't even have to think about it. I just leave them in charge of but the nice thing is you can sift through those book awards and see what you're you're gonna get for submitting. What could you get if you win. So moving forward number two remember. I mentioned editorial reviews whether it's going to be a place. You're going to go ahead. Showcase this on amazon author central. You're gonna want to showcase your award. Submissions or nominations. If you will and winnings if you've never done it before all you gotta do is just over. Two author central that's author dot amazon dot com. And you sign in with your katie p log in and such and you go to the specific book that you want to place it on now. Remember if you've got kendall paperback or hardcover you'd have three different listings. You're gonna wanna make sure you put all of your awards status on all three of those iterations it's not available yet for audio book There's other opportunities. We can do an audio book for for the most part if you want it. Put on a specific product page. Those three iterations are the way to go.
CEO of X2, Mark French, on How His Product Has Disrupted the Market
"Now. A couple of questions. I have here for you one. Is you guys are operating this business. And i would say that it is. It is disruptive what you're doing from what i can tell. The brand seems to be disruptive. What do you accredit the the rapid growth to do. What do you attribute the rapid growth to why is it. Being such a disruptive success. I would say there's more people coming to the category now right so there's certain people that would never try an energy drink right that more health conscious consumer really was not interested in putting in other bodies some of these beverages that had you know some you know ingredients that you can't even pronounce so as more people. Are you know looking for energy solutions. Whether it's a coffee drinker. That wants something. A little bit cleaner lighter Or you know somebody that might be drinking other energy drinks but is trying to live a healthier lifestyle. You know. i think that's really where the disruption comes in also. There's never really been a brand that you know was built in the locker room in this energy category right so you know. We're really fortunate that Death net recently featured us as a sports drink. Innovator we're not really a sports drink. We're not a hydration drink or something that you might take Before you want to do some exercise or if you wanna just have a little bit more energy and focus throughout the workday but you wanna have it with clean healthy ingredients and you know the other reason why people might consider us to be somewhat. Disruptors is just because of you know this athlete a model. there really haven't been athletes like saquon. Barkley labonte david kawhi leonard and now kendall tool who's one of the top peleton athletes That are joining a company like ours as shareholders and partners in the business. I think it's just you know shedding some light that there is renovation innovation in the energy category and that's where we could probably be looked at as being somewhat

Maria worked as a surgical assistant in low income areas of rome. She also had a private practice focusing on psychiatry through this work to came to have this revelation she said i felt that mental deficiency presented chiefly pedagogical rather than mainly a medical problem so maria began to study education. Theory and philosophy in one thousand nine hundred. Maria became the co director of a small school. That served as a training institute for special education teachers. The school's pupils were children with developmental and learning disabilities. Maria pulled from her background in medicine and approached the work. With scientific rigor she conducted experiments and made adjustments to teaching methods based on her observations. She offered unique materials to keep kids stimulated and it worked many of the children and the program made unexpected improvements and it was deemed a great success. Maria took her findings all over europe. She gave speeches where she explained her research and used her platform to advocate for children's and women's rights in her observations. Maria found that children were highly self motivated and curious. She saw that when children were allowed to pursue their in neat curiosities. They naturally learn from their environment. Maria advocated that teachers. Follow the child which was a radical idea for the time and to phrase that would define her legacy in nineteen o seven. Maria had an opportunity to fully implement her thinking she opened a full day. Child care center and a poor inner city neighborhood in rome. The students were children aged two to three or six to seven. Who had been historically under served in the italian education system. Maria specifically designed the space to allow children to self select between pre orchestrated activities or learning. Puzzles this attentive. Learning environment was called casa dei bambini and it was the first of its kind in italy. It became the first montessori

Because we're going to talk about a few things today. Obviously d. Pavlov is a project i've been interested in for at least a year. I don't remember when i first came across it but it might have been might have been. You introduced it to me. Or maybe shortly before that i found out about it but definitely answered that project and then obviously you've been involved recently with the elec surprise social competition.

Things I'd Wish I'd Known When My Kids Started College
"Things. I wish i known when my kids started college like how their meal plans. Don't include ten dollar la taes three years ago when my kids started college. I could've used some guidance. Decent advice wisdom. I went on college tours asking. What are your dorms. Emergency exit plans. I should've asked how many essential oil marketers within a fifteen mile radius. Hold a communications degree from your university. What did i know. I was worried. Said to be losing my babies and wondering how in the name of god they survive without homemade smoothies would my make good choices. Texts be as effective without the appropriate facial expressions. I should have focused on the upside vodka. Bottles would soon return to the oven where they belong. I could keep my journal out in the open rather than hidden in the closet near the vibrators. Real changes happen for empty nesters and our kids during college years. Not all of them bad. Here's what i wish. I knew it will take one year to go from crying when they leave to crying when they come home six months. If you enjoy the kind of privacy you haven't had since clinton was in office. Prepare a speech for when they call to say we've been seeing each other exclusively for eight weeks. Should i still use a condom. That kid who is said to leave home will soon be wondering why you do things like visit and stay overnight. Go ahead and share opinions about what they wear an instagram pictures. I dare you. Are we supposed to quickly pivot from casting out trans fats and other sources of evil to serene acceptance that their diet now includes edibles. Yes yes we are so steel an edible. When you visit. You're paying for it. Your boys will bring home girls who start sentences with as a capricorn. But stay supportive or though blame you for the inevitable. Break-up relax with the anti-capitalist you don't need to be investment bankers bullshit. You'll have to pay their rent when they eventually decide work as oppressive. It will take years before they stop asking questions about. Laundry and ironing
Google Develop AI for Detecting Abnormal Chest X-Rays Using Deep Learning
"On friday we talked about a nature publication by google. Ai scientists that showed how a deep learning system could detect abnormal chest xrays rays with an accuracy. Rivaling that of professional radiologists. The system only detects whether a chess scan is normal or not and is not trained to detect specific conditions. The goal here is to increase productivity and efficiency of radiologists clinical process. Let's examine some a i x ray. Science first of all how to rays work xrays are a type of radiation energy. Wave that can go through. Relatively thick objects without being absorbed or scattered very much. X rays have shorter wavelengths than visible light which makes them invisible to the human eye for medical applications of vacuum x. Ray tube accelerates electrons to collide with a metal and owed and creates rays these rays are then directed towards the intended target like a broken arm for example and then picked up by digital detectors called image plates on the other side differ body tissues absorb x rays differently so the high amount of calcium in bones for example makes them especially efficient at x ray. Absorption and this highly visible on the image detector soft tissues like lungs are slightly lighter but also visible making x ray and efficient method to diagnose pneumonia or pleural a fusion Which is fluid in the lungs. For example according to this latest nature publication approximately eight hundred and thirty seven million chest. Xrays are obtained yearly worldwide. That is a lot of pictures for radiologists to look at and can lead to longer wait times and diagnosis delays. And of course. This is why there's interest in developing ai. Tools to streamline the process many algorithms have already been developed but are rather aimed at detecting specific problems on an x ray. The google ai. Scientists however developed a deep learning system capable of sorting chest xrays into either normal or abnormal data intending. To lighten the case load on radiologists
No Deaths Reported as Small Plane Crashes in Provincetown
"Okay this happened just a few days. Few days ago Province town plane crash. Victims suffered burns and broken bones from boston twenty-five news actually i think that There was a. I think we have three articles here. And i liked the second one a little bit better so this is From wc be in cape cod or wherever they're from Federal investigators arrived at a wooded area near province town municipal airport friday after a cape air. Flight skit off. The runway crashed the faa said. The twin engine cessna 4:02 went off the end of the runway while attempting to land province town municipal airport around four pm k. A cape said all six passengers and the pilot were taken to a cape cod hospital Let's see an. Ntsb investigator arrived at the scene on friday. The wreckage is expected to be recovered. Saturday and taken to a facility for further examination. The ntsb said the investigator will document the scene and examine the aircraft radar data weather information air traffic control communication airplane maintenance records and the pilots medical records will also be collected Passenger said the plane was attempting land when it ran into trouble. Here's a quote from one of the passengers. I have no idea if the runway was slick. Or not i know it was not slowing down. And he lifted off again and we went through trees and stuff. That's according to autumn. Care mother of two and a geriatric nurse from toledo ohio. Who was with her friend. Heather on the flight
Trees Could Be a Mental, Physical and Climate Change Antidote
"Is well known. The trees help counter climate change by soaking up carbon dioxide. Now there is a growing body of research to point to many ways of dose of trees can improve our mental and physical health. Here's martha bebinger member station. W. b. you are on how and why the tiny sapling robin williams planted thirty years ago towers above her boston home. I raise this tree when i raised my children and look at this look at that. She says there's something about being near this tree. It makes everybody a little bit happy around here when you're looking for strength you can't do better than looking at a tree and there's evidence williams may will be gleaning any number of direct or associated health benefits a longer life. Bitter birth outcomes lower stress levels lower risk of heart disease. Dr howard lumpkin. Is it the university of washington school of public health. Lower risk of diabetes reduced symptoms of adhd proximity to trees is associated with a ridiculously broad range of health benefits. I wish we had pills. That were this good for health. A few countries notably japan and south korea have invested in a practice known as forest bathing which is spending time among trees as a preventive health measure but prescribing time in nature is still pretty far outside mainstream medicine in the. Us from can says that. Maybe because there's a lot we don't know what doses needed. Do you need to walk. Among trees is sufficient just to look at the trees from outside your window. Do you need big trees or do small trees do the trick we you know. We're not able to tease the forest from the trees. Peter james at harvard medical school aims to answer a lot of those questions. He's merging health data captured by phones. Real time surveys about wellbeing and mood and street. View mapping data to dig into. What's exactly within view. Is it trees. Is it flowers and how those things are related to help behaviors and health outcomes.
What Is the Value of a College Degree?
"Hi brian. Thanks for coming on the newsworthy fisher. I appreciate it. So i let me just ask. What's your take on the value of a college degree in today's world. Shoot we wanna value in having that college degree but when it comes to employment and job opportunities in some ways it's becoming less valuable because of how competitive the labor market is become as you look up and down the labor market from not just hourly employees retail employees but salaried up and down the continuum what companies are finding is that there's not enough people for all of the jobs that they want to hire for so one. They're relaxing a lot of the historical constraints that they've had on the jobs that they're hiring for and that includes things like previous experience educational certifications and different degrees. That people have had so a lot of companies in particular across the last two or three years have been relaxing many of those constraints. The other thing that's going on is that for people that might have some of those degrees or experiences or whatever it may be. They're also able to ask for more money in the labor market so the other reason why companies are expanding their horizon of who to hire. Is that for people without college degrees. They're able to find that job and they're willing to extend an offer them. But perhaps at a slightly lower compensation level than people who do have a college degree
Exploring the Inner Hebrides
"In some ways. The traditions of scotland survive most vividly in its islands off the west coast. These are the hebrides we've invited to of our favorite scottish guides into the studio to share stories and tips on their favorite islands. Liz listener is from fife. Cullen mirrors is from glasgow. And they're both here with us now to share a little better understanding of scotland's inner hebrides. Thanks for joining us. Thank you he cullen when you Think about the hebrides. We hear that word a lot hebrides. These are the islands off of the west scotland. But there's inner and outer hebrides. What's the story there. So and our hebrides.

So people will come to open. And that's the jumping off point to go to the islands. So open is the charing cross. Charing cross would be the big train station in london. Somewhere you depart go to different places so open would be the jumping off point. It's the big port on the mainland. From where the ferries go absolutely so. Kyle's what is kyle's kyle's of the stretches of water so the leyland's eye for the straight and on the missiles ago everything the lord's except for the aisles and the waters and that could make prince how the the the metrolink and forwards to the islands they caught passengers. The coty fleet the cardi tourists. So this is the ferry system caledonian mcbrayer because every time i think of an island scene. There's a dramatic ferry coming across. It is just beautiful thing. And you have the jumping off point in the real terminal Open and so people coming from moscow will die sleek connect with the on out so an answer to your question. Probably the most popular are the ones closest mull. Iona we can come back to 'cause i owned is really accessible as d. Are right for a particular reason

Plastic Surgery for Prisoners Goes Back to the 1950s
"Science historian sharona pearl is interested in faces. She's researched physiognomy. Which is the study of facial features in their relationship to character. She's written about face transplants. She teaches at drexel university in philadelphia and she was working on a new book about face recognition. She was tracking down stories of people trying to avoid law enforcement taking drastic steps to change their appearance. Everything from people trying to dodge modern face recognition software to a famous british train robber ronnie biggs who got plastic surgery in order to evade the authorities after his massive train. Theft as she got deeper into this kind of research looking for more examples of people changing their faces using search terms like criminals and plastic surgery. She stumbled upon something else entirely. This whole other world turns up what she found. Blew her mind. All of these studies written from the nineteen fifties throws late as the one thousand nine hundred eighty s about programs in prison that gave people plastic surgery as a mechanism to lower rates of recidivism. That's right plastic surgery for prisoners nose jobs ears pinned chisel jolla lines tattoo removal all sorts of cosmetic procedures in an effort to give people a chance at a better life.

Pittsburgh Wants You to See Constellations
"When astronomer diane turn shack move to pittsburgh in nineteen eighty-one she noticed. Something big was missing from the night sky. When i grew up in new england you could just walk outside and look up and see the milky way. But when i arrived in pittsburgh the sky had started to decline in quality. Still she says at the time her students at carnegie mellon university were very familiar with the milky way they knew about stars and constellations. That is not the case anymore forty years later. I have to explain what the milky way is and describe what it looks like in a show pictures and they think those pictures are fake. Because of light pollution major constellations can be totally invisible in cities. The pittsburgh city council is now trying to do something about it with the help of scientists like turn check. It passed a dark sky. Ordinance last week to reduce light pollution. This city is going to replace streetlights with warm tone. Led lights and they're also going to install shields so that late doesn't travel up what we're trying to do is cut out the light at the blue end of the spectrum because blue light scatters more easily than red light in the atmosphere rate. That's why the sky is blue. So blue light scatters everywhere. It doesn't stay where your lighting and to measure progress. She has some help in the higher ups in august. The astronauts on the international space station took some pictures of pittsburgh for on a clear night. And that's the before shot. The astronauts are gonna continue to take pictures of pittsburgh so we will have during pictures and after pictures. Terzic believes that as the sky's get darker more people will look up. In wonder that means more people more children will be able to see it and the benefits of being connected to half of our universe. I can't overstate that. It's a spiritual thing to feeling of connection with the universe she's hopeful it will peak young people's interest in the stars above and encourage them to pursue subjects such as

What Is the Difference Between a Mentor and a Sponsor? With Alison Martin
"Let's start with what you alison is a mentor. In how is that. Different from a publisher. Sure so what. We teach at engage. Venturing in terms of definition of mentoring is something that we there's a lot of different academic definitions. We boiled it down into a concept. Everyone can understand which is knowledge transfer so in other words. The mentor is shared there to show their experiences share. Their knowledge share their talent show. There was on whatever topic it is. Were speaking on so true. Mentoring is i've been there. I've done that. I've done that successfully. Ideally and i'm here to share my perspective with you so that you can really short cut your learning on whatever topic. It is that we are talking about it. We also teach this concept of having a personal board of directors or multiple. Mentors that you can count on but i believe it's important that you have as strong pure mentor. Someone who does a similar job to you but inspires you and is someone you can let your hair down with a little bit and really learn from and be inspired by someone who can give you some sound career advice and help you career perspective as you're thinking about what that looks like the more traditional mentor is when you aspire to be more like whether they demonstrate qualities and characteristics you would like to have or they occupy a position. You'd like to hold in the future. That's the most traditional form of mentoring but then finally we also teach this concept of competency. Mentoring so i wanna work on a specific skill or a specific topic. So i'm gonna work. Got a mentor to help me with it with that area because it's such a powerful and efficient way of learning whatever it is you're trying to learn that's how we defined mentoring knowledge transfer on whatever topic. It is that you are going to a mentor about. A sponsor is an advocate so as someone who is there. Ideally they're in a position that where they can open up doors for you or they can serve as an advocate for
Have You Been Crying?
"When i get really intimidated by someone's confidence. I have this little thing i'll do is like when they're talking to me. I'll just interrupt them and be like have you been crying. Really works no matter where their had is at. It really brings them right back down to earth. I feel like when girls are super confident. Like walking around with confidence most of the time. It's because they think they're hot. You know like i'm hot. This is my world. And i don't relate to that because that's just never been my full identity like when i was a kid for example girls that i'm talking about. They were princesses for halloween every year. They were like a princess pocahontas marine. You know like. I realized the other day that one year as a child for halloween i was an old man. I had like some stringy ray. Here my dad's old shoes. Everyone's like you're weird. I was a tarantula on your okay. Just painting the scene okay and then me and these girls we just go off in different directions. Our whole lives like out into orbit. And then when your lives intersect later it's it can be very strange because super hot girls don't understand regular girls lives so they'll give you very shitty dating advice for example like they'll be like okay. He's playing you hot and cold okay. Okay chelsea they knew it you can do. Just ignore him. Just ignore him for a little bit. Trust me okay. Just thinking are hem chelsea. Throw a little bit like all right well. I haven't heard from him in five months. Thanks for the hot ugly. I hate when female. Comedians really ugly garbage. I'm just saying that like when. I get super dolled up like the best i can hope for. Is someone like maybe. She's a
Influential Educators: Abolitionist Prudence Crandall
"Was born on september third. Eighteen three in rhode island booth of her parents. Pardon and esther were farmers. Imprudence was young. Her family relocated to canterbury connecticut. There prudence studied arithmetic. Latin and science topics not normally taught to girls at the time. But prudence is family was quaker. Quakers believe in equal opportunity for education in eighteen. Thirty one. prudence opened her own private school for girls. The canterbury female boarding school. The school served the wealthiest canterbury families and was a source of great pride in the community. It was ranked as one of the best schools in connecticut with the curriculum that rivaled even the most elite all boys schools but prudence is school was not entirely equal. All of her students were white to encourage prudence to take a more aggressive stance. Prudence is black housekeeper. Marsha davis began strategically leaving copies of the abolitionist newspaper. The liberator in places where she knew prudence would find them. The liberator promoted the need for immediate abolition as opposed to a gradual abolition. That was more commonly supported by the new england. Delete sarah harris who came from a prominent black family in the area was the first to actively approach prudence about integrating school. Sara was eager to continue her own education so that she could become a teacher for other black children and in eighteen thirty. Two prudence enrolled sarah in the canterbury boarding school.
