Ankle High School in a community called numeral and there I learned the Culture of people live outside my community of figured porch learned how to speak English. Well I learned how to play sports. I learned how to communicate with people at the beginning. It was like a culture shock. Because worrying over boots and overalls all diamond Mike. Immunity was different from worrying tree. Be Suits and dressing. Nice but you know I got used to it but as I say as I was finishing up high school I had to return home and while I was there I got into wrong company and I found myself stern to go down and it's sad to say that I went back into the world for about four years. I wondered away from God and this one time while we were in the boat. Our boat was filled with alcohol. Pick it up at a certain location. Where the train stopped and we are on our way back to our community of thicket portage and we had been drinking in the boat so and because I couldn't sit still and I was drunk fell over into the water. Fun Myself trying to swim with being unable to keep my coordination stern to sink sink into the water and former shelf helpless against one of my friends. He said I reached on one. Last time to grab you and Marm went down into the water all the way as far as you could go and should. I felt your head grabs you by the hair and I pulled you over and held you should. I wouldn't go under but you know. Those Mormon steady helped me by the hair. I look back now that it was the Lord holding above water and sink the me Fred. What are you GonNa do with Your Life? Now what are you going to do is it? And you know God spared me. There brought me back them so so any backsliders their emit beyond run-rate. Now you may be thinking that you can run from God that you can get away from what you experience already from what you've experienced when he touched your life when you felt his presence as you read his word and as you pray but today you're out there backslid. God has ways of bringing his children back themselves not long. After that after this incident all of a sudden I just didn't feel like patching alcohol anymore all of a sudden. I just didn't feel like doing the things I was doing anymore. I told my friends. I'm leaving thicket portage where the people that in one associated with me because of my being such a bad person fading with these guys and being nuisance to them all of a sudden they wanted meaner company all of a sudden they wanted invite meet. The party's bottles drink. What I made up my mind. I got on that train and lift that community and arrived in Paul and there. I got a job to be an instructor in college. And that's where Mitt this beautiful girl we started going together. I proposed and she accepted and in three months. We were married and my buddy said Fred. We'll give you six months. You'll be married for six months but it's been thirty five years now. Six months goes a long time all the different shares the Lord the Lord straightening out my life the Lord coming into our lives. Changing us in ticket portage. They told me Fred you're nothing but a drunk and the bum you'll never even have a good job but you know I remember that story many times of the donkey tied to the post in a certain village and Jesus told US disciples go to this village and there you will find a donkey the post you tied that donkey and bring them to me for. I want to use them. And if anyone says and isn't GonNa voted you tell them that the master wants to use them? Yes I was like that donkey either up to the post of sin by Satan and I was leg that donkey stupid stubborn lazy. No good for nothing like a buck but you know the Holy Spirit came through this teacher and through restoration from being drowned and water. Lorries me so my friend. One day ultimately ever man will stand before God to give account for their life. I recommend that you accept the payment. Those made for you by Jesus and don't take a chance because you won't be able to make the payment on that final day when you stand before. Have you felt the weight of your sin and wondered if you could be set free? That's why God sent Jesus to take your sin your penalty on himself at the Cross so that you could be forgiven and set free. He offers you this and so much more. If by faith you will place your trust in Jesus as your savior. God tells us in his word there is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ.

Prince's Neeson of the walks so that I think I was ten years old. Was Your father a voice act. Yeah that's how I started. It was just pure nepotism from the beginning. We know you told us in the in the I'm driving the clock Freekick Direction you Gordon Scheduling. You WanNa hear. Some crazy was born in Encino California California and no and then right away Maybe six or seven months my parents dropped out of society and moved to Saskatoon Wa and I was raised on an Indian reservation with the plains. Cree Indians we had Lived in a house that my father made out of mud which is traditional for this tribe and We were there till I was about seven years old. I was beautiful. I mean well I mean it was definitely hard. I don't know if you've ever been in a Canadian Tundra and play in the planes and the data fucking winter. I mean it's you know below forty it. It's pretty fucking gold move forward. Yeah You have to use your lightsaber test. Open Open Your eyes But we was powerful. I mean I was exposed to all kinds of beautiful native music powwow music peyote music Dancing powwow as girl was a nice way to grow up. I'd say and then after that we left the resin. We live nomadic in school bus for a couple of years and then finally settled in Toronto. Yeah it sounds like a half a story. I think they got it from me. I mean I remember when I walked into audition. They had this idea that this Freddie winifred was from Santa Fe and so they and I know that they wanted her to be. You know have a white mother was what they said and then they just kind of left it open end and then. I just remember them after auditioning they were interviewing me and I could see their wheels turning and then the next time I went back to audition. The script was almost almost just the interview. You know what I mean so were you the only child or did you have a baby brother? His name is Rainbow Son. He's also an actor. I don't know if there's any geeks out there he was in the original stargate with Jason. Momoa we're all very disconnected. Yeah he's ten years my junior. So how are you well not even? How were you pulled? The acting your father was my father was but you guys live this whole. He was doing more than voiceover work. I mean he when I was like I said I was born in Encino. My parents met my mother's a dancer and my father Was Was An actor and he was on camera actor. At first he was Did his well. The movie that they met was Francis. Ford Coppola's very first film and Fred astaire very last film it was a musical called Finian's rainbow starring Fred Astaire Patil Clarkin. My father and my mother was a dancer in the chorus. And that's how they met. So he was a very very popular working actor for years and years and years and she danced all over the Oliver Broadway in on sweet charity with Juliet prowse and Shirley maclaine and they were really magic. So what was the decision to leave Encino Hollywood and then to live you know they were? They really were disillusioned. I mean he was really getting tired of playing bad guys that hurt babies and women and she was. My mother is beautiful and black as night and she was tired of being the only one or never getting to be the one and they just said fuck it and they sold everything they had and moved to Scotland where my father had been. Dig This crazy thing. He's had so many incarnations but for a while he was the spiritual adviser for this heavy metal band called Crowbar Crowbar. Did this tour of all Indian reservations in Canada and my own just fell in love with Red Pheasant. This reservation and he really became family to them. And I think that's where the seeds were planted and they told him if he ever wanted to come back he could and he came back when he found my momma. There's a gorgeous picture of the two of you online. There is hair braided that you wear a lot. Yeah I wear my parents hats. I've been wearing so trendy now but you know I've been wearing these absence as a little girl you know so as a as a young girl. Did you have dreams of getting? How'd you get into the industry or I always wanted to be a performer? My parents performed even though we were on the rise. You know my father did this amazing show on the reservation. Call the insanity of one man and it was just as ramblings and his thoughts out of projector he'd play Auto Harp and then my mother would dance. You know she was a tap dancer retired from the National TAP COMPANY OF CANDIDATES. Sixty nine years old and so just watching them. I really never considered doing anything else. I wanted to be a singer and a songwriter. An actress and then when we left the res- my father that's when he became a voice over actor and then watching him.

Welker with Frank Welker to sometimes gusting and doing doctor claw and then he would do a lot of incidentals. A lot of henchmen a lot of teachers in the school and Shit like that and then I remember but this is just when he was auditioning. We didn't even know if he had the GIG and then he said. Could you audition cree? Which is just being in the right place at the right time. The child of the right person and then I lucked out and got it. Yeah Got Penny and then it just really steamrolled from there. I found myself working so much. I really wasn't even in school.

We know you told us in the in the. I'm driving the clock. Crooked! Direction. You Gordon Saskatchewan. I was WANNA. It was born in Encino California. California, and no and then right away maybe six or seven months my parents dropped out of society and moved to Saskatchewan, and I was raised on an Indian reservation with the plains cree Indians. We had lived in a house that my father made out of mud, which is traditional for this tribe and We were there till I was about seven years old. Like. I was beautiful I. Mean Well I. Mean it was definitely hard I don't know if you've ever been in a Canadian Tundra play in the planes and the data fucking winter I mean it's you know below forty it. It's pretty fucking gold. Move Forward. Yeah, You have to use your lightsaber test open. Open your eyes. but we. Was Powerful and I was exposed to all kinds of beautiful native, missed a powwow music peyote music, dancing powwow as girl. Was a nice way to grow up. I'd say, and then after that we left the resin. We live nomadic in a school bus for a couple of years, and then finally settled in Toronto. Yeah, it sounds like a half A. Story I think they got it from me. I mean I remember. When I walked into audition, they had this idea that this Freddie winifred was from Santa Fe, and so they and I know that they wanted her to be. You know have a mother was what they said. And then they just kind of left it open end, and then I just remember them after auditioning. They were interviewing me and I could see their wheels turning, and then the next time I went back to audition. The script was almost almost just the interview. You know what I mean so. Were you the only child, or did you have? A baby brother, his name is rainbow son. He's also an actor I. Don't know if there's any geeks out there. He was in the original stargate with Jason, Momoa. We're all very disconnected. Yeah. He's ten years my junior. So how are you? Well, not even how were you pulled the acting? Your father was my father was. But you guys live this whole. He was doing more than voiceover work I mean he when I was like I said. I was born in Encino. My parents met my mother's a dancer and my father was was an actor and he was on camera actor. At first, he was Did his well. The movie that they met was Francis Ford. Coppola's very first film and Fred Astaire very last film. It was a musical called Finian's rainbow starring Fred, astaire. Patil Clarkin my father and my mother was a dancer in the chorus, and that's how they met. So he was a very very popular working actor for years and years and years, and she danced all over the Oliver Broadway in on sweet charity with Juliet Prowse and Shirley maclaine and they were. Really Magic so what was the decision to leave? Encino Hollywood and then to live. You know they were. They really were disillusioned he. was really getting tired of playing bad guys that hurt babies and women and she was. My mother is beautiful and black as night and she was tired of. Being the only one or never getting to be the one, and they just said fuck it. Ma sold everything they had and moved to Scotland where my father had been. DIG This crazy thing. He's had so many incarnations, but for a while he was the spiritual adviser for this heavy metal band called Crowbar. Crowbar, did this tour of all Indian reservations in Canada and my own just fell in love with red pheasant this reservation and he really became family to them and I think that's where the seeds were planted, and they told him if he ever wanted to come back, he could, and he came back when he found my momma. There's a gorgeous picture of the two of you online. There is hair braided. That you wear a lot. Yeah, I wear my parents hats. I've been wearing so trendy now, but you know I've been wearing these absence as a little girl, you know. So as a as a young girl. Did you have? Dreams of getting. How'd you get into the industry? or I always wanted to be a performer. My parents performed even though we were on the rise. You know my father did this amazing show on the reservation. Call the insanity of one man, and it was just as ramblings and his thoughts out of projector. He play Auto Harp. And then my mother would dance, you know. She was a tap dancer retired from the national tap company of candidates sixty nine years old. And, so just watching them I really never considered doing anything else I wanted to be a singer and a songwriter, an actress, and then when we left the res- my father, that's when he became a voiceover actor, and then watching him I just wanted to do to. Like was he of the male blinked variety. Like what type of voice did you father? My father just had this really low and rich resonant. raspy voice, really beautiful. Yeah! I mean he but he did everything I mean. He could alter himself if she was so talented. Can you tell this man? Yeah. Okay, so your actual I mean yours. You're speaking voice and I mean. So. There's such a not a trademark on it, but it's so distinctive. Did you have this sort of. raspy precursors kind of. Voice when you were a kid and I did I mean my mom used to joke about it that I always sounded like I had a mentally to cool hanging out of my. I mean even when I was like three years old. They Man I. kind of froggy and my youngest daughter hero has that same voice. Yeah Oh does she here. L.. Peregrine storm born is four years old. Star on instagram she.

Electro-pop, power ballads and moccasin gaze: Meet this year's Indigenous Juno nominees
"Is square means woman in the CREE language. It's also the name chosen by alternative. Electronic Singer is square. The moniker is an abbreviation of her. Traditional name was he squandered a square which means blue sky woman is square has been a powerful and unapologetic voice for the indigenous experience in Canada. Ever since her self titled Album in Two Thousand and thirteen and her follow up. Juno nominated album the fight within four years later. Her third album at Chaco sick came out last month. It's been nominated for a Juno for adult alternative album of the year. Her Video Little Star has also been nominated for video of the year the cree and may T- artists grew up in Winnipeg and is based in Hamilton. She joins me from Toronto. Welcome sister at ten. Say from you so tell me about your new album. What were you thinking feeling about? Is You wrote these amazing songs. While thank you first of all and this one was a piece that I wanted to. I wanted it to be a story from start to finish so when I was putting all of the pieces together. I looked at this as a full narrative that was meant to share stories about culture and community and pride and art in addition to some of the struggles in some of the more challenging conversations. That are taking place within our community and society and so on to create this like element of of empathy. I suppose so that when the challenging conversations started to peel back when those layers started to come come down that that would exist so that we would be able to move forward through those conversations with a warmer spot in our hearts for each other. So much of your music as you said earlier you want to have these conversations whether they're difficult or challenging conversations with people and Much of a music is very political and I use that in air quotes because political means a lot of things to different people. What does it mean for you? It means to be a part of the change that I wanna see so it means that you know my experiences experiences of my loved ones. My family my community those people around me. I want to share those stories in a way that reaches people so that we can make changes. So why did you lend your voice in this way square when you could do very well by singing straight up pop songs staying out of it? Why do you get in it? You can't unsee what you've seen and that's really that's it. There's no other reason a rationale for me. I I feel this way. I see these things and it's it's now just a part of me. I didn't start off as a political artist. If you would write. I started off as just an artist. And and you know when you when I when I sit back and I listened to the ones that come before us Nina Simone. This is not a perfect quotes. Don't quote me on it verbatim. But along the lines of it's an artist's job to reflect the time and I really really value that sentiment and I think it's really important for us to use our our platforms our voices for those sorts of things. So it's less of a choosing more of something that just is a part of my soul now and it's more than just gesture music and and your lyrics it's also Your performance when he perform onstage. You transform you. Wear you put on the face paint and some elaborate costuming and you know you entered into this worldwide. Do that you know it's funny i. I'm learning more and more quite introverted. When I'm not on and then when I'm on whether it's you know on stage or public speaking any of those sorts of things it's I- i- tap into this different side of me and you know sometimes. I think I'm just a conduit to you know ensuring that somebody else's sharing these stories as well right and when it comes to how I perform it's something that just comes up from from the floor through my feet and then out my skull. I have no idea. They say it's the ancestors to believe that one hundred percent. Yeah when I any time I feel or have felt nervous or anxious about whatever it is that I was about to go do whether it was certain stage or a certain conversation or talk or something I if I can regroup and refocus my energy into you know talking to my ancestors my you know the ones up there that I speak to directly. I feel much stronger going into it and so yeah I definitely think they`re. They're with me all the time. I WANNA spend some time talking about your videos which earned gorgeous and powerful little stars I mentioned was just nominated for a juno for video of the year and I have to say that when I watched this video. I wept wept. It really really touched something inside I. What story does this song and video? This is a story of how the media was representing two of our indigenous youths during the trials of the nonindigenous men who were accused of their murders. At of course square. You are talking about the lives of Tina Fontaine in Colton Bushy. Yeah and at the time of these trials Certain media in particular were quite reckless with the way they were running headlines reporting on the cases and the stories and it really hurt. You know I and I don't mean that in any kind of simple way I mean that in the most If you could find the deepest Nook of your soul and stick something sharpen their. That's what it felt like and I didn't know what else to do other than to write. The song and the video really brings in that narrative and of course we'll post linked to that video on our website at CBC dot ca slash unreserved so squeaking of the Junos. How does it feel to be nominated again for your work? Feel so good. I was very excited. I was actually really surprised to be honest. Or you know I you know I don't know I think it was just one of those things. Where when you create a piece of art. It's hard to imagine that people are going to respond or something like it's it's such a vulnerable place to be that I tend to shy away from it and I'm just like okay here. You go and then I run and hide. That's kind of what happened. So what do you think it means though for for for particularly somebody who is indigenous and also political receive in recognition like this? Well Yeah it's I mean number one. It's a huge honour and I'm still. I'm still kind of digesting it right like it's been a huge uphill. Climb FOR ME. And it's a slow climb and so I I'm still kind of processing the sentiment of what it means to me what it means to what I'm doing and and almost like taking a step back and going. Oh there's people who are on board with me on this like they're a part of of the conversation and they're a part of the art and those two things are like. I can't rip those apart if I tried. And so people are starting to support that in ways that they hadn't before for me right so it's it's pretty powerful. Well thank you so much for your time today. Stay awesome sister. Thank you my friend. And congratulations thank you as square is a singer songwriter. Performer based in Hamilton.

Author Seth Berkman on 'A Team of Their Own: How an International Sisterhood Made Olympic History'
"We have another amazing righteous yet. His name is Seth Berkman. He is journalist by second journalists. We've had on the show but I'm a little bit of a twist. He has been the contributor at the New York Times nine since plenty of twelve he's also been published Yorker. ESPN other national outlets and this focus is actually on sports with an emphasis in perception the Asian athletes and we are catching him at this next exciting phase of his career. He is an author now. He published a book called a team of their own. How in the International Sisterhood Olympic history about the Korean women's hockey team in the two thousand Eighteen Olympics? That sounds like yes. Yes yes so. Thank you again for coming through. I guess we'll just go right into both. I mean so for for those the for those of YOU OUGHTA be watching. I don't know when and how this is how to book. Looks like a desk. The author right there on you know what I mean. Eight represent and Korea Korea. You know saying team of own available in all major bookstores available. Now so let's talk about this go. Who on the surface kind of book about sports and like players and identity? But you also talk about how this book really explores gender under an immigration in communication and that how do basically three identities of South Koreans like North Americans who you have a Korean heritage DOPP DIS as you call them imports and also towards a few weeks. Before the Olympic stars they find out they have to play with North Korean Ain't players so basically pulled from the diaspora and just kind of the hockey team. Right is that what happened. Essentially it's like a peeping pop pop of hockey players. They just kind of Joe hit. Go ahead you thank God. Damn tell us about your book in the very concise Nice way just for our listeners who are encountering it for the first time short and so it makes me think I once heard a long time ago. When you're writing a book someone told me that you should be able to explain it? One sentence I haven't been able to do that only because there's so many layers but to give you kind of just a simple breakdown to me. What the essence of this book is eventually? It's a search for identity a search for belonging that I think anybody can really relate to and what really sticks out to me. Is this give and take take that developed over time. So you had like you mentioned players from Korean-americans Korean-canadians North Koreans and South Koreans all forced on this one one team together over time though you saw this give and take develop between the sides for example. The Korean American Crean Canadian players like you said that imports they they never attached much their identity. They never felt Korean growing up. It was just language. Some of them grew up in rural North Carolina. So there were yeah no real strong connections or cultural aspects. They're going to Korea. Living in South Korea among young women obviously obviously changed that started develops stronger feelings towards Korea than on the other hand when you have the South Korean nationals. These half the team were teenagers. Fourteen fifteen eighteen sixteen year old girls on their growing up in Korea. And they're at that age where they're questioning everything they're having these thoughts emotions for example. Some players battled all depression but they never spoke about that openly just because in Korea it so taboo. Depression is still very new. Run around and there were even some players who had questions about sexuality their owns actuality. They just couldn't talk to their friends at school. Their people they knew increase about this but when the imports it's came over it became like an open book. You know they basically had these. QNA sessions where anything they wanted to ask about emotions or sexuality the imports. I would tell them. Oh it's okay that you can have these feelings. And so like I said you had this give and take between the exchange and I think that's what the book starts to really bring out is just how the sense of belonging grew from these two from opposite ends of the world basically coming together and forming this team. This little family that they did and going back to what Jackie said about. This is like a situation. You had a really crazy breakdown of how this team got recruited rooted because you know career finds out. Yeah we got the bid for the Winter Olympics. Oh we don't have a hockey program. So can you tell us then. Refresh the people who haven't read the book of how they went about recruiting in how unconventional it was so two thousand eleven. South Korea gets the bid to host the Winter Olympics in two thousand eighteen. So they celebrate immediately but then it dawns on them. Oh Shit we have to create a hockey team. Olympics hockey is a centerpiece sport of the Winter Games. No one in South Korea. They'll really plays hockey at all. So what they did. Was Korea Ice Hockey Association of a man who works in the public relations relations department. Basically he went on Google and googled women's Hockey College Women's hockey teams in the. US and Canada pulled up the rosters and looked at but names that sounded Korean or if they had pictures took note of players. Look Korean when I interview early on even said the first few players he found. Were actually Chinese. These there was like a Yang and a Wu and he never heard back from them but he is a cree. How can anyone who looked? Possibly Korean sounded like later Korean rename reasons. How like an excel sheet of a name? Exactly eventually he stumbled on a few that responded to them but at first when they were contacted they thought they were being spammed. Damned pranked emails. Broken English Green Symbols Ronan was like something at dot com got even like an official government in my email account and so the first person that kind of bit you know took the bait was She actually had an uncle lived in South Korea and so he when in an e content to Kia loughry ice hockey association. Verify you for sure Kia C.. Kriss oil great pat branding confine your and they reach out to him and he was like. Yeah we're interested in bringing your daughter over here to represent South Korean the Olympics and that's how these korean-canadian free in America players kind of latched onto the team. Yeah well it's interesting that they think bank just like you looking Korean is what makes you Korean route. You know if they're looking at Asian faces. I'm sure some of them were adopted so they don't have green last name name so they were making like these assumptions. That's like really interesting of how that was something that was important to them that they were just Korean. But even if on the inside they may have never encountered the right and then but I think maybe for this government official who had to put this together his or her door process was probably early like you know as an easier way for me to possibly convince them yeah to kind of like take citizenship or you know like maybe they are or dual citizens so it was kind of an easier
Does Sponsoring An Online Summit Work?
"Before a share my experience of sponsoring and online summit. Let's really break down. What an online summit is it's very much like a real conference the you would attend in real life? There's a schedule of speakers everyday and sessions that you can attend most online some of our life and this allows you to ask questions from the speaker and have discussions but there are many as well. The are not live they actually record the interviews in advance and then paste You know the video of it during the days of the summit they show it you know during those times and then once that is over over once that session is over that time is over. You can't watch it again. Now whether the first showing his live or recorded if you WANNA watch or have access to the recordings later you're gonNA have to pay a fee. which is how they make their money? Now what's good about online. Summit Suzanne the often attract really good speakers. Why because speakers don't have to travel they can do it from the comfort of their home or their office also online? Some of US have become very very focused in niche something you can attend an online summit specifically about writing a book or starting speaking career or starting a yoga business and they'll bring on experts in that area to speak about it throughout the day or days now as a sponsor you will get exposure on their sales page usually. It's at the bottom of the sales page and there has different tiers of sponsorship. You know the typical platinum you know gold silver bronze they may also include Email newsletter mentions were when they send out reminders about the the Actual Summit Your Business. Your link is shared with that an email. They might even open up the summit or open up a session of the summit mentioning you on the video. There's a lot of things that can and cannot be included in the online summit package. Now there's two things that you need to understand that I really WANNA highlight here. Number one online are fairly new and the idea of sponsoring one is even newer right. It's like a very new concept so it's actually she a pretty good time to experiment with it because it's a little bit like the wild west you know there's no real hard and fast rules. Everything is negotiable. You know I negotiated. Are Ara online summit. Sponsorship include things. I wanted to make sure it's worth my money. And for many of these some organizers they're pretty flexible because they're learning as they're going along. There's no industry rules for this yet. So for example. If you have a budget you could say here. Here's my budget. This is what I want for this budget. This is kind of exposure. I want want Can you do this and you can. You negotiate you know. Meet somewhere halfway but the point is is that you know they may present you some packages but everything is negotiable ocean. What I found the second thing I wanNA highlight is the most important thing is the email list okay? How many people actually register for this summit? Now this is hard to find out if this summit that you're gonNA sponsor is the first time they run it so they don't really know what happened last year because they didn't do last year they may give you some estimates and and that's helpful but it's not an exact science you know when they haven't done it before I like to sponsor events have been done before so I can at least have some rough numbers of what happened last year. I could base it off last year with the hopes that it's does the same or better so the question you really need to ask how many people register for the summit whether they watch it live or later on they buy. I want to know the total number of eyeballs will be seen my logo seeing my message seeing the email with my you know mentioned in the email newsletter after all that kind of stuff. So that's the number. You really need to find out now. In my opinion if I can get my cost per lead to three dollars or less it's worth it and this is how I reverse engineer or get the math for that equation now first of all. Why three dollars? Because that's a pretty good price for a qualified lied for. Somebody who is Would be interested in what I have to offer so when we sponsor we use women are Ninja as a sponsor our with our software to the actual Event was small business owners. It was perfect fit. So if you have a great audience in front of you if the summits about or four people that are perfect fit for your product or service that that is a great Audience agree on strategy. Try to attract leads from to get their email addresses now. Why three dollars again? Well that is a really good price as for elite if you ran facebook ads or any pay dance. It's actually a very good lead in my marketplace for marketing and business you know that lead price hovers around four five five dollars so three dollars is a steel. It's a great deal so basically what I wanNA find out is. Am I going to pay more than three dollars a lead. If so. I'm going to have some reservations if I can hit that three dollar mark. I'm happy so I'm looking for numbers to show me. If I can get that number so save. For example. A sponsorship package is is three thousand dollars. They need a thousand leads if I want three dollars per lead and this is really what. I'm trying to find out from the organizers in the past when somebody has you know Oh shared a link on your newsletter or in your On your website or if you ask to be a speaker at the summit and you share a link from the thousands of people that register how many people actually opt in need that number. What's your conversion rate? If I can get a thousand and you know the example sponsor packages three thousand. I'm getting three dollars per lead. That's amazing I got a thousand people on my email. Melissa that I can nurture that can build a relationship that can convert them into customers and for me. It's worth so you've got to find out your number. How much are you looking to spend? And a good way to find out is to run a facebook at run a facebook ad for a week and spent one hundred dollars and find out. How much does it actually cost you to get somebody to go to a page and give their name and email address Four some sort of piece of content of video an e book some some sort of content upgrade some sort of premium content that they can get in exchange for the naming email address can run a test and you can find out how much is your cost proposition and if you can get a lower than that through some it. It's a good deal. No one of the things. I like to ask for as part of my package is to be a speaker at the summit because I want to be able to give as much value as possible. I WANNA be able to add value to the conference and if I can build a relationship with the people on the summit and say wow. This person actually gave me a lot of great tips tips and a lot of great insights and change the way I thought about certain things. They're going to look me up.

Educate them about my product and services and tell them why they should choose us so then I can eventually turn them into a customer
Death and dying: how Indigenous communities grieve, survive and thrive
"Life expectancy for indigenous people in Canada is lower than the rest of the country's population and part of the reason is the higher rates of sudden deaths in indigenous communities. Jeffrey and sluice has worked to try to understand the issues behind that statistic Jeffries cree and is an assistant professor at the University of Toronto. He's here to talk about some of his research into death and dying within indigenous communities. Hello Jeffrey thanks for having me. So how is grieving and death in indigenous communities different than others. Well I think death and dying in any community can look different to begin with every family Every person has different traditions additions and different ways of expressing grief. And it's certainly true that culture shapes our sense of what normal grieving is And so for as much diversity. As there is within indigenous communities across the country there are as many expressions of grief that surround issues of death and dying. What are some of the issues that indigenous communities are dealing with well? There's often this sort of a typical things that go along with an experience of loss of a family member or loved one but for many indigenous communities as complicated by the nature of how people have died For a lot of families experiencing thing sudden loss in particular unexpected loss through homicides or suicides it can be particularly difficult to to think Abo- what grieving might look like in that context. So Jeffrey what are some of the things that indigenous communities do as part of their grieving process. I mean for example in my community community. there's a four day grieving process before We we send that person often in a number of different ceremonies and things that are rooted in culture. What what have you seen? There's a often grieving process between the point when a person passes And when they pass onto ords a spirit world And that can be kind of mitigated by a number of different ceremonies in my community. That's often the lighting of a fire that stays lit for the entire period of those days. in other communities that might mean We speak of that person during that time but then after that period has ended we may not actually speak of or use that person's name for a period of time other communities have specific medicines. That are used to help. Ease that transition between death and the spirit spirit world. There are a lot of different traditions. But those are just a few that come to mind So how is the grieving process changed in indigenous communities. That's an interesting question I would say you know it's changed substantially over the course of the experience of colonization If you look at this from a historical lens our communities and our cultures had intact practices around death and dying that predate sort of the Ways in which. We approach these issues today throughout Canada. And and so you know. Those things changed in large part due to the impact of colonization And the effects of largely missionary movements throughout indigenous communities and then more recently residential schools. And I think the other the thing that's also true is there's other factors that are causing Destroy Dishes to change one being. We have to think about how to create and how to respond onto the unexpected and unprecedented loss of life due to unexpected death. Things like homicide and suicide The ways that murders or missing people or the loss of young ones in our community we may not have had a script for how to deal with those things and so in those senses as we have to create new new traditions and protocols to take care of people in new contexts the other things that a lot of people live far from their communities and I live in Toronto in my home communities in Fisher River Manitoba and so thinking about how do you take care. How do you create great ceremonies to support grieving? How do you create community connection? When a lot of people live in substantial distance from their communities and from the context by which they might be informed by traditional practices around death and dying now I understand that in many communities that often As you said there are a lot of sudden death issues whether that's suicide or whether that is homicide or When somebody goes missing and you so you don't have that opportunity to grieve over over a body per se What is this this cycle do? How does that affect a community munity? When you know you've just finished grieving somebody and then somebody else passes or is it gets? It's profoundly painful for a community and a community is often in never not in a season of grieving. I don't WanNa give the impression that every community every indigenous community is the same in that regard but there are communities there are communities entities throughout Canada where indigenous people are never living outside of the shadow of that type of loss and I think that creates tremendously difficult circumstances where people are often confronted by their own their own pain on a daily basis whether it's never reprieve from that type of loss you you know. The impacts of that can be really detrimental on people's sense of wellbeing their health and certainly has other impacts in communities as well. You know people's ability ready to be engaged in school or work or other other impacts are really felt that can be quite systemic for for community. Certainly now you've said that media India Government and people in general often conflate sudden deaths in in our communities to mental health issues which in a seems very simplistic. But you think it's more deep brewed than that. How so yeah? I think you know. It's certainly true that You know if you look at issues like suicide There's no debate that there are aspects of health that are intertwined with that experience. But I do think it's more complicated than that. And I think that the way in which is treated as often quite simplistic the fact is is that to live a good life. You need conditions that are conducive to living And when we look at the context across Canada where suicides for example are most prominent these are often contexts where there has been ongoing diminishment of the quality of life for indigenous people. So it shouldn't surprise us. That communities that experienced the highest degrees of economic disparity are often the same types of contexts contexts where suicide is more prevalent And so in that sense. There's there's all these other factors that kind of surround a person that are not just about them as people people in their particular vulnerability or risks towards. Let's say something like depression. But also it's to take into consideration the host of factors that exist around onto person in their environment. These different points of of of contact that shape whether something like suicide makes sense now in in in your work talk about Promoting vibrant indigenous life. What does that mean and what does it look like well? I think that it's one one thing to save people from death but I think that You know to a certain degree if that's the limit of our vision or if that's the the end of what we hope for or I think it's a pretty low bar. I think we have to answer the question of why is life worth sticking around for if we can begin to answer that question in with young people in our communities I think we shift towards things that create conditions for a good life You know every community has different talking about this But I think a good life you know in our community is certainly one where you can experience joy where your basic needs are met on the the big picture. We need our Federal Government in collaboration with provincial and municipal and territorial and first nations governments. I'm mm to really begin to think about suicide prevention in a completely different way one that is not entirely preoccupied with crisis response. Wants you know this sort of revolving door of social workers or psychiatric nurses into communities after a crisis has already happened but to really make good on the commitment to you to to really do justice by indigenous people By ensuring that their conditions for living are at a at at the very minimum equal to that of other Canadians But but a higher bar than that that are conducive for good life I think that means that communities is where you know. where there's chronic underfunding for infrastructure or under funding for education or underfunding for healthcare. Really has to be taken seriously as part of the constellation of issues that shape Young People's desires to want to live So that's on the big picture. I think that's where we I need to start
New Jersey Adds 6,500 Jobs in December

Microsoft plans to erase its entire carbon footprint since 1975
"Microsoft announced that they plan to fight climate change with the gold becoming better than carbon neutral by two thousand thirty and they WANNA retroactively offset all the countries emissions from its entire history by twenty fifty. You know how I've been telling you. Wall Street subway cares about sustainability. Well I think that's part of the reason why mcso Stock Rally Free Bucks today. The Times they are changing cubs great track records investors a fortune in recent years so they now have the leeway to take a stand so a few moments ago. I sat down with great Sachin Adela. He's the bankable CEO of Microsoft in his first ever appearance on the show. Take a look so real reminding okay and we gotta talk about because this is a day where you basically redefined this company and became what I think is the capitalist leader doing something. That's maybe more important than than just earning per share. You're doing impact per share. Why I what thank you for being so awesome to have you here on campus? You're absolutely right. It's a big day. A in fact it's I would say a big decade in front of all of us and today's start. What is I think about our mission to empower every person in every every organization on the planet to achieve more the fundamental thing is? Let's put more depth to what achieve more looks like for the world to who us. It means we need of course as a company we need to be able to drive brought economic growth but it's just on economic growth. But it's about really having that core inclusive growth trust in technology and all that we do should lead to a more sustainable work and so today's announcements were that last part which is commitments rear making by twenty thirty to become become carbon negative. Do we in fact go back in history all the way to our founding in nineteen seventy five look at all of our energy consumption from electricity and other sources and and make sure that we recapture that and of course. We're also know that it's not just about what we do. It's the ecosystem and the innovation. We need breakthrough so even putting a billion dollars in an innovation fund. So we're very excited. We know it's a small part quite frankly. All of us remember to do to achieve more but unless assured small out twenty fifty. If you don't do these things what does it mean for both the planet and of course for Microsoft I mean the signs that think at this point is very clear if the the temperatures rise I think the impact. It's going to have unless talk about the economy. The economy all enjoy or the capitalist system that we all arleen joy. I think we'll fundamentally jeopardy if the planet which is the resource the factor of production that has fueled all of our capital else capitalist. Society will be dangerous to me. That's the existential priority. And for us as a company for now it is all about making sure the commitments is the start off then ensuring that we are living up to those commitments. So I think it's really twenty thirty twenty fifty that we're looking forward to doing part your rigorous stanton. Your company is rigorous about numbers. This is the first time I've heard anybody lay out an actual let's say yardstick. That's hard and it's not just for your company but your suppliers and even for the users of your technology. How can you enforce it? And what does it mean when someone says you know what the we're not playing ball look. This is not the first time we've done these things first of all. You're absolutely right. We have to be rigorous and it's not about making commitments or making claims. It's about fall through so for example when be changed some of the benefit policies Just say that anybody who works at Microsoft even if they are a vendor will get yet the parental leave or sick leave. We had to pay for it from piano because we fully expected that the companies that are employing these these people are probably not going to be able to increase wages. So in some sense we have account. We've done our homework. We know what our emissions are in both on all the scope scope one one two and three and we feel that. We've had a bottoms up plan on how we go about it. We were one of the things that has really helped us is the carbon tax which we introduced multiple years physicals has built an internal rigor sort of speak on. What does it mean hard to actually have a way to think about an accounting for carbon and then go after it go a little bit bigger than carbon you care about other values including carbon artificial intelligence? Many of us are worried that it can be he used for harm. Not just for good. You're thinking about what technology will mean. I've been talking about tech intensity city ice here that and I say I'm concerned the text too intense and powerful you walk but largest coming and use the things you're thinking about first of well let's I'm an optimist. Technology can make a huge difference. I mean think about it. It's the most malleable resource that we as humans. I've ever found a software right and to think about. This is a factor of production that changes in a precision medicine. Precision agriculture feed every body body right or connected cars connected factories. I think that this is amazing. If the technology in terms of computing is getting embedded in the real world artificial intelligence for example. I mean think about what the state of the art of whether it's reinforcement learning or this what we call multi modal large scale model training. It's essentially helping US discover new knowledge. That is not possible even before. And I'll take somebody with disabilities today with breakthroughs in computer vision for someone with visual impairment. They can interpret the world. Someone with dyslexia can read because of what I can provide. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't be clear eyed about the unintended consequences of let's say technologically driven unemployment or bias in any algorithm and so we have to counter onto that so take bias first of all we as a software company a building tools. Just like how we build tools in order to ensure that people don't have security bugs in software. We should say if anybody what he believe in the model how can they D- by the model and by the way the team we've learned the best reader debiasi modest have a diverse team building it in the first place. He's suzy so smart. And you won't be able to track the diversity unless you do some things we're talking about at the same time that you're doing all these things. You are a competitor. Now you have different styles from your predecessor. Who was oh golden? Good friend of mine from college. You are a cerebral lead by example person. But you're also competitive and when and watch your National Retail Federation piece. You mentioned it's Walgreens. You mentioned Walmart starbucks. Those are three gigantic retailers. You're still you're in a titanic battle against another company to get those customers and you also offer value position that aws. Doesn't I care about that. Tell people I mean first of all. I think what's happening in retail. It's pretty exciting. I mean if you think about it everyone. Twenty nine thousand nine has sort of realized that. What retail is it's about Omni channel retail? So you need the physical stores you need the online presence but most importantly you got to connect the two things seamlessly one of the things that I talked about was what how Walmart is completely changed. The game came around. How they're doing delivery so you can order my groceries? I can start going to the store. It given the geofencing features their I o t Essentially inside the store wakes up. Make sure that things get back fresh and is really for delivery. So it's the best example Walmart taking their physical assets that digital digital capability and we're partnering with them. Same thing with Walgreens what they WANNA do. Even for chronic care management like diabetes or what marks and Spencers is done by essentially taking the store and making it a computer embedded computing. So this is one of the fascinating thing is people places and things are increasingly having digital twins this and since a digital infrastructure is more malleable. You can predict things. Automate things gain insights are like unprecedented raised. How'd you Guinea's Guinea's Azure when I saw you last? You made bold claims. I said at the time of how much money you could make with Azure. You've vastly exceeded them. Even as some of us were pleased. Who is this man? How did you see it? How did you know and how much of the future will be quite frankly? It's sort of the guy who gave me permission to do all this. Well Steve Bomber. If you think about it he wanted us to be bold and go at the cloud very aggressively. And that's what we did and one of the key things Jimmy did was. We didn't even think about azure separate from Microsoft three six five or dynamics three six five or now even xbox live or ex Ex Club we had a vision AFL Europe computing infrastructure structure and platform company. What is that next generation? We and by the way I was always grounded on the fact that it will be distributed computing infrastructure. It's the cloud doc and the edge for example. One of the fascinating. Things is is to talk about the edge. In fact I even started talking about the cloud and the edge probably four years ago and people say. What's he talking about except for now? It is conventional wisdom. That's what it takes. I think you have to have conviction on where the world is going. Make sure you bet long before anybody gives you credit credit for it and then of course execute and that's what we've done in every layer of the stack the infrastructure level platforms of service SAS layer. And that's that's what we're doing. Do you think that the marketplace will continue to pay as much as it does for your perfect execution for instance stop four hundred and ten percent return since as you start one point. Four trillion dollars will be some executives at major foreign firms funds. That say you know what I'm not going to buy that stock tears too much much about these things war will. The world changed so much that if you don't care about these mandates you're stock's GONNA go down. It's a great question. I mean you know you and I were talking before we got on the air which is You know there's this great book by Colin Mayor Called Prosperity and he talks about what is a corporation ration- and the corporations purpose is to find profitable solutions to the problems of people and planet. Okay profitable is the key would but problems is the other keyword for people and planet I so I think what happens is if you're creating a lot of profit and cree end creating more problems for for planet or people. I think it'll catch up with you so in some sense the way I look at it and say. Hey let's go after the core of what we're doing it's not about carrying about a funeral. Well things are shareholders. I always saying our shareholders are the ones who are giving US permission to be able to think about whether it is the affordable liberal housing order. That it's the carbon it's our shareholders who care as much about this as anyone else and they permission and therefore we are accountable to them to execute execute on these commitments. We make and that's good for business. It's interesting look twenty. Eight times earnings one of the highest both sort of the highest multiple for any of the plus one one hundred hundred billion companies because they want you to have that permission other issues in tech that use spoken about that are. Let's say on a hot griddle right now. Privacy Apple versus the Justice Department corporations upholding things. That aren't necessarily the constitution. There's nothing about privacy. Obviously the constitution sadly I think versus a government that is intrusive once again. We've got situation. Government wants coal you know. Coal government wants intrusion. Corporations corporations want privacy. Where do you come down these first of all? We're clear that both things matter here. The two things being privacy as a citizen as a user. I care deeply about privacy and as a citizen I also care about public safety right so both of these have been balanced and I think we have to come up with legislative mechanisms for that things like back doors and so on just bad ideas but like the cloud act which is a completely different carell. Today is actually a good first step in terms of having the legal framework for how we can in fact protect the privacy of anybody anybody who has data in the cloud and yet have the ability for any law enforcement agency to issue legal warrants. So we now have to have a technical technical and a legislative breakthrough around what is considered personal information. That's not in the cloud and so. I think that this is something that we will have to work out.
