The inauguration inspires more art
"Sure. But artists also played a big role as you might have heard. Earlier in the show. We got to see Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez perform. There was an art installation at the National Mall. But outside of Washington, one particular piece of art really struck us. Hoarsely. Allah Barriers is a poet from Chicago. He often writes about his identity as a Mexican American from a mixed status family, And this week he was commissioned to write a new poem. It's called the People's Inauguration. It's your part of it. So let our imagination be as expensive as our love These In the beginning, there were no police until someone imagined them. So let's imagine the end of policing. Imagine medicine for the sick. Imagine bread for the hungry and don't stop imagining and struggling until we have a country worthy of inauguration. Jose Olivera is reading some of his poems, the people's inauguration. Put the olive areas as poem was commissioned by a U. S non profit called the Center for Cultural Power. And for more Jose's on with me on the line on Zoom from Jersey. Hi, Jose. How are you? I'm good. How are you, Tom? Powerful poem. Thank you. How are you doing? It's been ages since we talked. How you holding up? I'm holding up, Okay. All things considered, you know, the most important thing is everyone's been able to stay safe. So I feel really lucky and grateful for that. Well, we're lucky and grateful to have yet In the end that poem, which is which is beautiful in we're gonna get some poetry from your later You refer to a country worthy of inauguration. When you were watching the inauguration. Were you in any way confident that this new president might be able to steer the ship in that direction? I'm hopeful that at the very least we won't Live under the constant kind of terror and anxiety of the last administration, where we just, you know, would wake up to news that there was you know the Muslim bin and then the next day, there was another catastrophe. And so it feels like At the very least, it won't be four years of one catastrophe after the next I feel a little bit less a little more hesitant, saying anything more than that, because I think there's this idea that a return to normalcy is good enough. But normalcy was not good enough. Normalcy still meant that a lot of people were living. We're still suffering. So for me, we have to do better than just getting back to the way it was before Donald Trump one of the most beautiful moments of the inauguration, Certainly one of the most standout moments was from the poet Amanda Gorman. 22 years old youth poet laureate. I can see you getting excited as I talk about this. She brought the house down housing significant Was it for you to see poetry used like this. It was so powerful and so great. You know, Amanda is like you said, 22 years old to see a young person. Given that opportunity to shine, I think just goes to show You know how many talented poets there are in that young people when given the opportunity can really rise to the moment. So I was really happy to see a man that just absolutely crushed it on that stage and as a poet yourself, it must have been so exciting that all these songs did very well. But it was a poem, a poem that reached so many people that made such an impact. Absolutely, And the poem was so musical. I mean, you could hear the rhyme scheme and the different rhythms that Amanda incorporated. My favorite moment is she has a line that said, You know something along the lines of harm for none and harmony for all that little flip is just so beautiful and I think worthy of what of what we want and what we're trying to build. Well, I'm excited to listen to some poetry from you as well. You're going to read from his later on,
Los Angeles native Amanda Gorman makes history as the youngest poet to deliver the inaugural poem
"One of the most remarkable moments of wednesday's inaugural ceremony came from the inaugural poet. Amanda gorman of los angeles. she's the youngest poet in. us history to address a presidential inauguration. She became the youth poet laureate of los angeles at the age of sixteen in two thousand fourteen and then the first national youth poet laureate the twenty two year old poet read her poem. The hill we climb. She finished it right after the riot at the capital earlier this month. Her words captured the nation. This is amanda gorman. Mr president dr biden madam vice presidents mr emhoff americans and the world one day comes we ask ourselves. Where can we find lights in this. Never ending shade the loss. We carry a c. We must wade. We've braved the belly of the beast. We've learned that quiet isn't always piece in the norms. In notions of what just is isn't always just is and yet. The dawn is hours before we knew it. Somehow we do it. Somehow we've weathered into witnessed a nation that it isn't broken but simply unfinished we the successors of a country and a time or a skinny black girl descended from slaves into raised by a single mother can dream of becoming president only to find herself reciting for one and yes. We are far from policy far from steam. But that doesn't mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect. We are striving to forge or union with purpose to compose a country committed to all cultures colors characters in conditions of man and so we lift our gaze. not what stands between us but what stands before us. We close the divide because we know to put our future. I we must. I put our differences aside. We lay down our arms so we can reach out our arms to one another we seek harm to none and harmony for all let the globe if nothing else say this is true that even as we grieved. We grew. That even hurts. We hoped that even as we tired we try. That will forever be tied together victorious. Not because we will never again no defeat but because we will never again so division scripture tells us to envision that everyone is so sit under the vine and fig tree and no one so make them afraid if we're to live up to our own time than victory won't light in the blade but in all the bridges we've made that is the promise to glade hill. Climb if only we dare it because being american is more than a pride we inherit. It's the past we step into and how we re parrot. We've seen a forest that would shatter our nation rather than share. It would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy and this effort very nearly succeeded but while democracy can be periodically delayed it can never be permanently defeated in this truth in this faith we trust for while we have our eyes on the future history. Has its eyes on us. This is the era of just redemption. We feared submission. We did not feel prepared to be heirs of such a terrifying our but within we found the power to author a new chapter to offer hope and laughter to ourselves so while once we asked how could we possibly prevail over catastrophe. Now we assert. How could catastrophe possibly prevail over us. We will not march back to what was but moved to what shall be a country that is bruised but whole benevolence but bold fierce and free. We will not be turned around or interrupted by intimidation. Because we know our inaction end and so we'll be the inheritance of the next generation. Our blenders become their burdens. But one thing is certain if emerged mercy with might into might with rights then love becomes our legacy in change our children's birthright

Scientists study blind piano prodigy
"So often someone so young does something so amazing. You can't help but wonder how do they do that? That's what happened. The first time we heard Matthew Whitaker played piano. Matthew is a jazz pianist who is blind and since the age of 11 he's been performing around the world. He's been called a Prodigy. And is Sharon all fancy first reported in February. His talent is so extraordinary. He's also caught the attention of scientists who are now studying his brain. Trying to understand his vision of music. Matthew Whitaker doesn't just play music. He plays with it. Twisting melodies, crafting complex harmonies and improvising at lightning speed. It's acoustic acrobatics performed over 88 keys. And it is not for the faint of heart. Matthew made his first appearance at the New Orleans Jazz Festival. We watch backstage with his dad. Sheer complexity and spontaneity of this sets. Yeah, like this. Look, Ma, no hands moment, make the most seasoned musician, sweat and jazz fans go wild. Spending. He plays with his shoes off so you can feel the pedals and his head turned so we can feel the crowd. It's New Orleans shots. This is Tiffany of jazz festivals. Was this a dream? It is amazing to be here like this is where jazz started. Do you get nervous before a big show like this? Honestly, what I was talking about Lois. Yeah, You know, Once I started playing I am I thought good jazz fest is a jumble IA for the senses. It's a lot of music coming out yet We negotiated our way through the thick rule of humidity, suffocating crowds. The 14 stages of music that often boil over into the fairgrounds. Can you hear all the different stages? Are you like this? Like, Yeah, Overwhelming right behind the tube. But is we walked around? We notice Matthew was able to cut through the sensory assault and identify songs in seconds is buying just salsa. Just a closer walk with you've got that song just that lady E heard like three notes, and you already know what song it is Lower. Matthew grew up in Hackensack, New Jersey. He's just happy all the time. His parents Moses in May, Whitaker say Matthew had an ear for music before he could even talk. Tell me about the first time he picked up an instrument he was playing. Uncle twinkling star, But he was playing it with both hands and that was playing the chords and the melody of the song that she had a lesson to this point. He hadn't had a lesson or anything. He was three years old, So my question was okay, who showed him how to do that? Somebody had to show Matthew. How did how to play this song and nobody showed him. Matthew Whitaker was born in 24 weeks, He weighed £1.11 ounces. His parents were told he had less than a 50% chance of survival. One of the many complications he face was red, not pithy of prematurity, a disease which can lead to blindness. I think at the time I didn't think he was gonna make it so It was just just very scary. May and Moses Whitaker watched helplessly as Matthew breathed 11 surgeries to try and save his sight. After two anxious years, they decided they didn't want Matthew to endure any more. Even if it meant he'd be permanently blind. We just felt that he was going through too much. We were going through too much because the doctors were saying it was getting any better. We say you know what? That's enough. You just We just deal with it. As it is. They told you, you might not even speak exactly. They said that he might not crawl into might never walk. Because he needed those things to see. You know most most kids they learned to crawl later in tow walk because they wanna try to get to something. Matthew couldn't see to get to anything. So a lot of his toys and stuff we had to have sounds so that he will want to cross. I want to reach to those things. Matthew did start crawling towards music, sometimes sliding up to the speaker to feel the music. No one in his family was a musician, but his grandfather bought him his first keyboard when he was three years old. How complicated for the songs he was playing early on, there was no she rides more soon, anything so they weren't that complicated. But what he was doing was complicated because most kids don't play with both hands, and they don't play the court and the harmonies and all of that, and that was doing that. He realized he's got a gift. Yes, let's get him a teacher. Yes, which was the difficult part. Why was that difficult part Because at the time we got a lot of answers what people were saying He's too young. He's three years old time or well, I don't know how to teach a blind child when you do this guy Dahlia Sack has agreed to meet Matthew Sack kisses, the director of music studies at the film in M. Dagostino Greenberg Music School in New York City. A school for the visually impaired, So we brought him over. And die a played something on the on the piano, and Matt repeated it. Then she played something else, and Matt repeated it. She said. Bring him in. We'll make the exception. Everybody. Dahlia has been teaching math you ever since. She is a classically trained concert pianist was performing a couple of recitals and the divorce Jack Piano Quintet is a piece actually for piano and Strings quartet. So there's five of us so madam, his mom came to hear. You know, the night I played. He comes in Saturday morning. I walk into the studio. And he is playing the opening of the divorce quintets, you know, And then the cello comes in, and he knew the whole thing And I, but remember Nice. Divorce. Jax Piano Quintet is a challenging piece for five musicians. Matthew was playing his version of all five parts on his piano. Can he listen to a piece of music for the first time and then play it? Does he have that ability? Yeah. Just hearing it once. Yeah, he can pretty much get it. That's insane. Yeah, there isn't saying yeah, yeah. Yeah,
What airlines, other industries got in $900B relief bill
"Is help for the airline industry in the pandemic release build again hasn't been signed yet by the president but is out there. Our next guest points this out, taxpayers are putting up almost $500,000 for each laid off airline worker to have three months of employment while cooks and waiters get nothing. In other words, airlines air outranking restaurants in relief money. Jonah Sarah Bloomberg opinion columnist joins us Now Joe did thought, go into this. Or was it a simple matter of the airline lobby being more powerful than the restaurant lobby? Well, they're barely is a restaurant lobby. Let's start there. Whereas airlines have been, um Taft up. You might want to say for many decades because airlines have had dealings with the federal government from that many decades between the FAA and, um You know, various various airline regulations and so on and so forth. So so you know you start there. I mean, restaurants are just is just defused. Organization. They're not large companies and even you know, restaurant chains. I mean, putting McDonald's aside, you know, in a city like New York, you know Danny Meyer. It was probably the best known restaurant tour in the city. You know, he has maybe 20 restaurants. And that just doesn't give them the clout that the airline industry has, even though they employ more people. And even though their people are really, really hurting, So, so this is a searing column by you kind of comparing and contrasting the airline industry with the restaurant business. So the restaurant's obviously it is a you know it, Z. It's a diffuse industry. Lots of independent operators historically has had not been a push to kind of organize better this industry that it's so important to many people's daily lives. Where there is a restaurant lobby of sorts, the National Restaurant Association, but it doesn't seem to have a lot of clout for whatever reason, um after the pandemic. After the first round of stimulus, the P P p program, there are a bunch of independent restaurant towards tried to start an organization called the Independent Restaurant Coalition. And they had a lot of success. They got they have they have a bill that would cost $120 billion, which is a lot of money, And the idea is that instead of trying to do it, like the P P p You know, the restaurant industry would get money based on last year's revenues, pre pre pandemic revenues. And believe it or not. The bill passed the house in October. Actually, by quite a quite a large margin, it had more than 50. Sponsors in the Senate, bipartisan But, you know The Senate is run by one guy, and his name is Mitch McConnell, and he was more interested in that three martini martini lunch tax break with he claims will help restaurants. But no one in the restaurant industry seems to think it'll make much difference, at least not in the short term. I mean, at the very least of people start flying again, they will need to go out restaurants at their destination. But it's really a long time before people really start flying in numbers again, Joe, particularly since you know the vaccines are into out there yet so You know what is the thinking behind this? It was thinking there's there's two things. There's two things going on here. Um, uh, The first is that airlines Um You know they will be bringing people back to work. It's easier to give money to a large company that could do one thing that can bring 15,000 people back to work thing. Bring 20,000 people back to work. It's easier, whereas you know, giving money to restaurants is that is a kind of a messier proposition because they're all so many of them and they're so small and it will be. You know, there's that, But the thing you have to remember about restaurants, it's not just a place to eat. Every major city in the United States. Restaurants are at the core. Of their vibrancy and their downtown area. And you know, if you're gonna build a new suburban area, it's going to be built in large part around restaurants. They player hugely important role. In the life of cities. And so ignoring restaurant is really a damn damaging America's cities, and that's what breaks my heart about this more than anything else. So, Joe. I mean, what's the guess? The fate of the U. S restaurant, if you will. I mean, you know these, I'm gonna call them individually owned Mama Pop if you will, but you know that the non chain owned Restaurants. The numbers were seeing and not just New York City, but a kind of across the country are staggering In terms of Harmony or likely have gone out of business are likely to go out of business. How bad is it? Gonna get right? 110,000 are estimated to have gone out of business in the U. S. That's a lot you walked. I mean, and look, I'm a New Yorker. So I walked down the streets in New York City, and you just see them closed up everywhere. Um, you know, some of them will survive. You know, there certainly were. There are restaurants. It'll survive. There's no question about that. Some of them have learned to shift to take out. Even even if the very high end I get I get notices from Daniel Balu, who is one of the great chefs in America. You know, get get our Christmas dinner for $75. We'll drop it off at your house. That kind of thing. So the you know, some restaurant restaurants will survive. But I think what you're gonna see Is that when the pandemic ends, and people can start going to restaurants again, um you'll see a lot fewer restaurants and it will take. I think a generation for restaurants to build up to where they were. This because they'll be so little capital left in the industry. Right? And and you know, as we've been saying all week if you've seen your restaurant closed down if you've had to lay off stuff If you've worked for years to build up a successful restaurant, do you really have the fortitude? Never mind the capital. Actually startle that whole process again. So, Joe, I was listening to Carl Drega Donna speaking with the guys a little earlier on today, and he was talking about his better stake a scattergun approach than a rifle approach. And I'm paraphrasing. But in a sense, this is a rifle approach. Right? As you said, you could re employ a lot of people. If you target just even one airline, where is targeting restaurants is more scattered on. It's definitely a lot more difficult to put together. Absolutely that 100% And I think that the P p p p p experience. Excuse me. The P T P experience has not Been all that satisfactory for Congress. I mean, so many so many, uh, cos got left left out. Somebody felt like you know, larger companies got money that didn't really need it and so on and so forth. So it's really hard to put together a program that would work. I mean, I do think that the program the restaurant industry put together would have worked if had if it had been tried, But of course, we'll never know because it didn't get tried.
God's Passion for the Nations (Zechariah 8:20-23)

Elliot Page to continue role on ‘The Umbrella Academy after coming out as trans
"A show on Netflix called the umbrella academy and it's already in its second season, apparently, and on that show, Ellen Page. Now, Elliot Page has played the role of Vanya Hargreaves, who is a cyst, Gender, lesbian and a cyst. Gender lesbian is essentially a woman. Who is a biological woman, and also identifies as as a woman. But who is a lesbian? So so it's a lesbian. Right? It's a lesbian. Who, and that is the role that Ellen Page has been playing. And so now, people rightfully have asked, isn't it? Isn't it appropriate? Then that Elliot Page give up that role for someone who actually is a cyst? Gender lesbian? Because, as you know, there have been lots of people who have had to give up. Trans roles because they are not trans Scarlett Jo Hanson, For example, she had to pull out of playing a transgender role in a movie called Robin Tug, and 2018 worry. I know what was the name E was hoping that you wouldn't pick up on that. That's the actual name of the movie. It's the actual name of right and Halle Berry was also considering playing a trans man. And then backed out because she got so much criticism for it. And she was like, Oh, God, I'm not gonna do that. I need to be an ally to the LGBT community. So if that's the case of these are the rules, then why does Elliot page get to continue to play? Lesbian woman. So that look from sitting here in my straight male perspective, which I realized disqualifies me from ever commenting on anything, but I'm gonna I'm gonna take a stab at it here on these flamethrower radio airwaves that go from Ohio, Illinois. It's I don't care what you do right? You do you as long as there's a harmony. What one else you call yourself whatever you want to, But it's society now forces me to embrace it. And celebrated and right. And if you don't not only embrace it, but celebrate it, then you're a bad person. I don't care what you do, but I'm not throwing you a parade or making special rules just for you. And I and I agree with you, and I also think it's absolutely fine for Ellen Elliot whoever to play to continue to play whatever character He was he was playing. But don't then turn around and say that Halle Berry can't play a trans man like that. Either. We have the rules or we don't have the rules. But we can't have a bunch of rules that on Lee apply to some people some of the time and that's what's so crazy And this conversation is important because it's a part of a broader thing that government does all facets of life where the government picks the winners. And the losers, whether it's tax policy or freedoms and liberties or abilities to do things, it's an important conversation because this happens all the time. We weren't equal people. There are winners and losers in all facets of our existence. And this is a just a great example of that. Do whatever the hell you want to do. Call yourself whatever the hell you want to call yourself, but you are not special. Exactly. That's exactly right. And I think that you know some of the people that are asking these questions, and they're I think they're right to ask the questions because it's it's fair to ask. But others are saying Well, straight. People don't ever have to worry about losing out roles, toe trans people, and so that's why this is different. No Either. There are rules or there aren't rules, period. Let's

Unhook Your Wealth Blockers
"So we haven't been able to do a coffee talk for a while and i have been leading a ton of events in virtual events and And so i haven't been on this page that much and we posted things but it's not the same as being with you live. Can you agree with that. I love seeing you guys live and seeing your comments and seeing what's going on in your life and and what's on my heart. This morning is after speaking at all these events or something. That's become really alive for me in my life. Which is the the act of listening to what people are facing. I mean you know. We just had the elections. And then we've had krahn virus like infiltrating our life and And everybody's afraid to touch each other anymore and live live ca live events in thanksgivings. And you know hopefully not christmases but like all these things that were used to connecting with each other. Just have been just really sucked vacuumed out of our life and so one of the things that i think is really important is to listen to each other instead of fighting each other all the time which were so used to doing what the elections going on right now. We need to actually stop and listen to each other and remember that your business is built on serving people. And when i've been having my ear to the the computer my ear to the surveys. I've surveyed four times last week alone. Four times and what i kept hearing over and over and over again is that people are really fighting with their emotions there. They think they're fighting with people. They think they're fighting with with Belief systems but really at the end the day to fighting with their emotions. And what i mean by this is when we're dealing with frustration and overwhelmed and and you know if we're to be really honest with ourselves we say things like i need more support or i need to sales team or i need more leads. I need to figure out what my offer is. Anita figure out how to. How the better spouse and we actually put all of our power out there on these things that we can't control the truth. Is that what we're really fighting with is our emotions. I have a friend of mine. Who's a couple people that i know clients and friends that are separating themselves pandemic breakup right now and that just hurts my heart. Because i mean. Let's not put an identity on a break-up because it creates a collective herd like mentality. I don't know the stats when you know somebody who's gotten a divorce. There's like the the The statistics go google's but the statistics are extraordinarily high that your relationship is going to be impacted in a way that you actually contemplate divorce or actually move into that direction as well or break up and so it's fascinating to me how the herd like mentality moves around so let me show this thing about emotions as i've been serving the number one thing that i'm hearing is that shannon if i could just get over my emotions like frustration and overwhelmed and anger and the things that really caused me to procrastinate or to get angry at people i love or to basically push my power way and put blame or responsibility on somebody else to make me happy. It really like people actually identified that. It's their emotions. That is the problem more so than anything else. And so listen to that. And when i listened to that what i did was actually launched a whole like seventy challenge on helping people build revenue in their business and overcoming their emotions. And i gave them really hard homework pieces every single day to have to go do so that their emotions would flesh up so that they can see it. And i don't know if i if i changed any lives or not but i definitely tried. I definitely went out therein and did my best to To really show them how to put revenue back in their pocket. And i was just sharing with somebody like this year over here taxed untaxed on my phone just sharing with somebody this morning When i spoke at an event actually live event. Believe it or not that. I spoke out Just a few days ago. And i showed everybody how to create a million dollars fascinating to me. Go back to. The emotion thing fascinates me the only people who really wanted more details for the people who are already wealthy. People who are not wealthy had this conversation. I'm sure now. I'm assuming that it was over their head and i just it brings me back to like just opening up your eyes to know what's really going on in the world and it's like if they knew if they knew that they could actually execute on that on that three step plan to make a million dollars. Why would they not rush to find out more details and the reason why emotions in emotions have us believe that. We still need to get ready to take action. We still are not ready right for that next big thing. I see this semi pro. I have a one percent club with my private clients. And and this may be the last year that i do with our clients and and they literally they literally when people many of them when they come to me they say i said what's the ultimate plan and they tell me what the ultimate plan is and the ultimate plan is someday and that's emotions emotions have us make about some and i always say a. Why don't we just make this now. And then you'll see how committed you are to it and how much you really want it. Because i think we love to live in someday. Someday i'll have the marriage that looks like that. Be careful that someday. I'll have the business someday. I'll have the money someday. I'll be able to get up and workout someday and the truth is that somebody can happen right now but the but the truth is you might not really want that thing. You might not really want that thing. Because i'll take into relationships. If you really wanted your relationship to work what would have to shift in you right now. What would have to shift in you right now. To be able to create peace and harmony. I would have to shift in new okay. So there's there's a those away there's always a way right. There's always a way. I mean i wouldn't recommend staying with somebody who's abusive but like i've met people who used to be abusive and they're no longer
Creativity as a Mechanism to Win
"Creativity as a mechanism to win. What yes that's what. I'm talking about right now. I have been just in love with my own process lately and it involves a mindset as well as a time management hack and one. I'm talking about is i work on my money making projects as my core focus of my day. That has not changed. But what has changed. Is you know grinding. It out for four years plus on doing own gig. Sometimes i get stuck or frustrated or like burnt out for lack of a better word and rather than going. Okay send a day to quit. Seven o'clock tune out. Watch some netflix six. Instead of doing that. I have implemented something else which is far more satisfying and it is. I have a set of creative projects that i'm doing and allotting time for for myself and if i do it right i can also learn. New skill sets while satisfying the creative side of my soul. So it has professional benefits as well as sole benefits as well as productivity benefits like. It's just a whoop. It's an alignment so let me explain the for myself. It might be different for you but for me. One of One project. I can think of as i wanted to learn some harmonies and lay them down on audio software. Just for fun. Because i love harmonizing and with the pandemic it's hard to get together in person and harmonize with people So i just was like well elite. How my own tracks harmonized with myself. Because it's so enjoyable. And i did that. So he became more familiar with Recording software and how to to do what i needed to do with multiple tracks et cetera. So that was a skill that i'm building and singing is obviously the harmonizing is really enjoyable So that satisfies decreed site. And then i was like well. I want to be able to quickly make any audio files. That i produce into videos so i was like all right. Quick hack and learn that real quick check and then just keep going so. That's one and then another one i have is. Oh then. this is totally frivolous inhale. Larry is and that's why i love it. L. being in my creative project rotation is that i've set up in my library. A mike stand and on it is god a microphone. Obviously and then an audio processor with the gain and everything and i plug it right into my phone. Start taking video and my dream for the for. The project is to have gene. Eat some healthy snacks and do like little. Asmar videos because it's so funny. Like i would love for him to be tic tac famous. And i don't even know dog. Asmar is something people like because it might be actually disgusting. Like i don't care. So i'm not really looking at it as like oh i'm gonna make my career out of making dog. Asmar no it's more just hilarious to me the thought of it as genre but then it also gives me more experience with equipment and working with my dog in creating content from a totally different angle and also video editing and tiktok. It's fun So those are just some examples for me. So it's it's kind of amazing you can just be working on your money making projects and then if you get stuck or you get tired Rather than just being like. I'm done for the day. That's it you just switch gears and you activate the creative part of your brain and if you do it right you can also pick up new skills on the side just for fun teaching yourself a whole manner of things and this is in addition to taking master classes or learning from your favorite business. People like i love. Jay abraham so much and radio and sara blakely and barbara corcoran and mark cuban. Of course i'm very aligned with him on social justice as well as how he approaches his whole entire career so anyway that is super fun. I wanted to talk to you guys about that. L. creativity is a mechanism win. And when no if you're doing that is well. I know a lot of people like engineering types to have multiple interests. They kinda tend to do this naturally so they just go from thing to think to think especially if they're like adhd so yeah. I've just really taken a lot of joy in this approach because it makes me feel like instead of like i'm not enough. I didn't complete you know solving this problem. That i've wanted to solve for three days. You know instead of feeling like that feeling and going. I gotta call it a night and just go watch some amazon prime. You know some movie instead of doing that. It's like i'm to. I'm a shelf this for now. And i'm going to activate a different part of my brain know because some of us are both analytical and creative
The Chemical Symphony of Plant Perception
"Like a lot of times are introductions to plants are so sterile and kind of lame honestly that it just doesn't paint the true picture of how dynamic and interesting they are as organisms. Yeah i mean when you when you get into first your biology. They save plants photosynthesis in. That's it it's it's kind of disheartening and really tragic as you think about it because plants have amazing chemistry that they do so far beyond photosynthesis and people just don't realize in that in that context and so it's been really really fascinating might my work specifically works on looking at neurotransmitters. Implants which most people are willing to accept the plants Make compounds that modulate arnulfo transmitter. But for some reason it's harder to harder to accept that plants themselves have signaling molecules. Yeah it's wild especially when you start comparing sort of the presence of these molecules across all links of life and then you think about plants. You know they're not a dynamic moving organism that wakes up and sleeps and runs around the landscape and get scared and has to defend. Its you know. These are organisms that are largely sitting in place to find some of these compounds that you know we again. If you have any familiarity with biology you know animals produce. It's it's kinda strange and so what brady to the path of trying to understand those. I mean there's a lot you can do and bonnie there's a lot you can look at even plan chemistry but why signaling compounds yes so for me. My i can have introduction to plant. Signaling was as an undergrad. I actually worked for agriculture canada and one of the projects we on. I was in an entomology. Labs talking winding paths but One of the things we looked at was on winter annual mustard so like little tiny ditch weeds basically and an house you grow them in vineyards In the drive rose to the rosa you drive down versus the the rows of vines that some of these will actually attract some of the past more strongly than than the grapevines. They didn't really understand why this happened in so one of the things they did. I was to take these little tiny plants and put them in bell jars in actually collect the volatile that came off of the plants and they were trying to look at the interaction between these tests and the the volatile is coming off the plans to understand kind of what those interactions were in. You know i'd heard of essential oils and pollinator attraction and things like that but thinking about it in this different contacts that there's these other on known question. Mark mystery vol tiles That are kind of nuclear. Replace all these sprays by just having these specific weeds in your vineyard was really fascinating for me and soy and a follow that down the line. And i've been really lucky to have some really great mentors. Who kind of think outside the box and question things like you know our plants intelligent. How do you define intelligence do plans perceive things in. It's it's been a really fun fun journey that way. It's pretty wild introduction to this idea or at least this path of career you ended up taking. And it's you know you know you hear these sorts of things and and usually kind of inserted at the end of an article or maybe at the end of An actual research paper where they're like. Okay the application of this we can maybe use this in instead of pesticides herbicides or something like that but to actually see it play out physically and know that this is something that actually goes. Down is pretty wild honestly. I mean like just to connect those dots from these tiny unseen chemicals to predator plant interactions. That's that's really cool. Yeah it's really interesting to think that you know when you're going and doing your instagram shooting. The vineyard your action in the middle of like massive chemical warfare so yes. I'm so glad you put it that way because again there's so. Much misconceptions are weird opinions on the plant world and most of them are centered around the sort of like harmony peacefulness. And they're very quite blake forest. If you could hear it would just be. Yeah chemical warfare screaming. It's a really intense environment out. There and plants are a major player in that the struggle for existence. Yeah absolutely and i mean you said you know. Plants can't get up and move around and things that and it's really. It's really quite interesting because they can't get up and move around but there's a lot of things they can do instead and so it really leads to a lot of interesting questions of if you can't get up and move around what do you do instead. Chemistry's pretty fond. So i'll take your word on that one. I didn't do so wrong. Chemistry and undergrad. But i digress. But yeah and so this brings up a lot of really interesting questions which you kinda hinted at about perception and intelligence and you know plants don't have a brain. They don't have a central nervous system to start processing and really Perceiving the world around them like we do. But that doesn't stop people from taking those leaps. And i think it to me it. Kinda shows a lack of imagination to think that whatever we perceive the world like however we understand our place in this to think that that would apply to assess organism. That doesn't have any of the organs that we do. So in terms of plant perception intelligence. This is a lot to unpack. But it's not like these things are thinking and having opinions on things right. You said something similar to that in the email and it made me laugh aloud for real. Yeah i mean. I think it's easy to take those sleeps in a lot of times. I think people take them because it's easier for people to understand. We'd like to understand things in the context of ourselves. And so you know we think of intelligence in the way that we have intelligence but if you actually break down no what is intelligence. It's really just a set of behaviors and so you can have you know human intelligence or plant intelligence And those are really different is defined it just based on you know the number of senses were pretty dumb only got five senses but you know plants can sense a lot more things in the environment around the because they have to and so the ability to sense something as a definition of intelligence is a good way to start so the example used in the emails that you know people say you know plants have a preference for like rock music or opera music which is just kind of silly. But it's not when you start to break that down and you say okay. Plants can sense. Vibrations and all sound is is vibrations. So fat part makes sense and maybe they can sense. You know different frequencies vibrations also makes sense but does your plant actually sit there and say like no i really prefer this interlude to like kiss song it just you know it's easy to extrapolate that one extra step in and come to a kind of a pseudoscience e- explanation
How To Align Your Customer Experience
"Now my guest and says, episode is Tim Ashe who is an acknowledged authority on evolutionary psychology and digital marketing. He's a sought after international keynote speaker and the best selling author of two books I one landing page optimization, and more. Recently unleash your primal brain actually just listened to recently on audible. Fantastic. We're going to dig into that one for sure Tim has been mentioned by Forbes as a top ten online marketing expert and by Entrepreneur magazine as an online market influence to watch. For nineteen years he was a CO founder and the CEO of site tuners, tuners dot, com and their digital marketing and optimization agency. Tim has helped create over one point, two, billion dollars in value for some amazing companies that I know. We all know Google expedia harmony facebook and American Express and cannon and Nestle there's massive list year semantic new to it and humanity Siemens anyways in countless direct to consumer brands. So exciting to have Tim today busy schedule. But please join me conversation with Tim Today. So. Tim Welcome ECOMMERCE battling. A Ha-. Very. Happy Veer Steve. So you've had quite an eventful career I might add keynote speaking around the world are writing bestselling books year you run international conferences, I guess pre cove in our doing some virtual events. So tell me a little bit about best can your entrepreneurial journey so far? Sure. Well, I've worked in a variety of high tech companies when I started university at UC San Diego my undergraduate majors were in computer engineering and cognitive science, and then I stayed there for graduate school and what would neural networks or what would now be called deep learning or machine learning or A. And this was early days We didn't have the big data sets that we do now with the Internet. So I switched Internet marketing and started my first marketing agency back in the early DOT com days and Never, let go of the Tiger's tail and twenty five years. Later I decided you know running an agency wasn't my highest and best use on the planet. So I decided to focus on what I really enjoy, which is the thought leadership in the form of as you mentioned, keynote speaking and writing my latest book and spreading knowledge out to people as opposed to working on client accounts. Right? and. So I did mention a little tiny bit of top of the show but you know you've worked with a lot of some really great ecommerce brands some of the largest brands I might add like what are some mistakes that you see kind of consistently some of these e commerce brands are making today will if we restrict people have different definitions of ECOMMERCE, I, just WanNa start there for some ecommerce anywhere. Any website that has as A. Checkout anything where you sell items directly and for others, it's more restrictive and I'd say it's a e commerce catalog and that's I think a more standard definition. If you also use a lots of different items, you have a homepage category pages, search results, pages, and product, and so on. It's not a website where there are two or three things for sale in those early incidental. Would I don't know is that a fair definition or how would you agree with that? Totally would agree with that yes. So In the case of large catalogs, I'd say the common mistakes that we I've seen in my careers one gratuitous use of motion and wasted real estate on the homepage in the form of giant sliders everybody seems to have those Sh. Yeah. That's a big known my book I talk about I have a whole e-commerce best practices section in my landing page optimization book and I devoted a page to why sliders. An evil that should be immediately removed from your site. While you know what part of it I think to is that it doesn't position the brand well, enough I think with having like motion and I think when people have a lot of different slogans, tag lines or kind of looks and things going out other different sections on the site they think they're trying to blast all of their bullets out on this highly sought after a piece of real estate versus maybe having a proper positioning statement or something. One thing that's very important. That's key to why someone should click. Through or why someone shown up on this particular website having one message and one brand image and go further than that I, would say that I'll numerate the reasons why you shouldn't have a slider on your homepage. The one that you mentioned is by far the most important our brains from an evolutionary perspective are designed to notice things moving in are visual field. It kind of has survival value. If you know what I mean here is coming to eat me I need to know what direction and how big is right So. they're they're an interrupt, their the nuclear option in the face of motion graphics won't get looked at and even in the face of graphics, text won't get read. So anything that's graphics or text on your site can't possibly compete with that atomic bomb of a slider on your homepage. And and another reason that really bad is because it's trying to pretend you have more real estate than you really do. So everybody wants a piece of the homepage and lurk. We can add another frame tour slider. Well Great. Thanks. So now have to sit through a longer commercial nobody likes to do that on broadcast TV. There's certainly don't have the attention span to sit through five three seconds sliders to make sure they saw every frame of the crap you're trying to throw them on your home page You don't really an editorial problem. You can't decide what's important. So you're trying to cram it all in there and make everybody happy except your site visitors that are trying to give you money,
What is happening with the Uighurs in China?
"In China's northwestern province of Xinjiang the government has locked up more than a million workers a Muslim minority in a vast gulag. The whole province is a surveillance state within a surveillance state. The government claims it's de radicalizing population prone to separatism. People in Xinjiang in your happy life people call for older to restored each in. China of course, is strongly opposed to any torture and prosecutor and discrimination of any avenue. Good people. This is not the case in. Child. The reality is that it's carrying out crimes against humanity. We're going to take a look at how the repression is tearing families apart and preventing leaguers from even having families. We'll speak. With. googlers forced always to look over their shoulders. And will find deeper complexity in the party's ethnic repression on a visit to a tourist town in south western China. Own. The government is persecuting not only adults but hundreds of thousands of children to. Reporting by the Economist has unearthed government documents that show not de Radicalization. It's a campaign to crush the weaker. Islam. Faith to erase their cultural identity to chip away in their minds and in their bloodlines at what makes them weavers. It's difficult to get firsthand accounts of what's happening. Clearly the weaker inching John are unable to speak. But some brave souls have managed to escape and to tell their story. Our China Affairs at its her Gotti Epstein has been speaking to one of them. Presume Daoud and her three children, Fridays? We're probably the most terrifying day of the week. That was the day when officials would question students and schools in. The interrogators were looking for clues about the students lives at home. They wanted to know whether parents prayed or used Islamic greetings or talked to the children about the Prophet Muhammad. If the answers were in satisfactory they could result in a family member being sent to what they call a vocational training centre. or The camps in Xinjiang New Gulag. One Bologna. Bake. As. Miss Dogwood told me her children would be nervous that they would answer. Wrong. And get her sent back to the camps where she spent two months in two thousand eighteen. Kept. A. Terrible. saw. The Donald Families Experience in this regard is is quite common and Chin John. Absolutely. People Focus when talking about the workers on the detention camps but really Xinjiang is an open air prison. For twelve million dollars, their surveillance both low tech and high tech Miss. Dodd Dawood told me of an APP installed on her phone and where afterwards when she. Used traditional Islamic greeting on the phone. She was called minutes later by her. Local police asked her why she did that. Victim get little bug Emerson S Allama. amendment. Get. Across the region, families will be appointed to write and read articles praising Seton King. Others might have to write and read hands to ethnic harmony and some have to praise other policies that the party is imposing on them including the placement of quote unquote Han relatives in their homes and given that much of this has has come out now in how do officials in an Giang justify that that level of surveillance Chinese officials say that they are doing this in the interests of the weaker pupil they say that they are fighting the three evils of terrorism extremism and separatism. They say, they are making Xinjiang's safer and they say they're making the weaker pupil happier. But in reality, the experience of workers in the camps and even outside the camps is one not of training for the workforce but of indoctrination of trying to strip them of their relief, zero city or of any sort of cultural practices which stripe them as efforts to be distinct and separate from China. So what happens to those who were deemed to broken these many tiny rules? Well, leaguers like Ms Dour are placed in the camps Kerr offenses was for. From Pakistan, where her husband is from visiting. Pakistan. A number of years earlier. Accepting money from a foreigner who has a family friend who lived in China and securing an American visa these are all things that police asked her about a four sending her straight off to a detention camp but she's apparent. I mean what happens to the children of Leaguers who are who are detained? Well, this is the problem that the Communist Party itself is having to face up to because they are struggling to deal with the children of the parents of detained in local work documents that we obtained the officials us a chilling tra- -nology to refer to children whose parents are being held by the state. They're called Don Kuhn or single hardship or swung double hardship depending on whether one or both parents. Has Been sent away and what the documents also reveals that they're struggling to keep pace. They want to place these children in boarding schools basically, and so they have spent a tremendous amount of money expanding boarding facilities at schools across sin John just in the last couple of years, and what are these schools like is not like kids version of the Gulag you described for adult that's not too far off I. mean. These schools many of them have high security fencing and that's even true of free kindergartens and they are places where the kids are kept. These are cited even in state propaganda sort of celebrated. But those kids are as young as months old the propaganda describes as being well fed well, cared for happy learning the national language. Chinese. The point of this propagandist to convey the notion that they are helping the. Wiegert children but obviously, the effect is much different. We've seen testimonies from Chinese teachers who volunteer work in these areas that described children in pretty bleak conditions and in terrible emotional states. But what do you mean by diluting the culture on the surface of it? This just looks like oppression does right and suppression, but it's pressure that's really designed to reduce the influence of the weaker people and even their numbers. Their policies supporting confirming ethic marriage trying to encourage weaker girls when the girl enough to marry Han men and their rewards associated with that those included job of flat or even keeping family members out of camp. And then there are other ways that they're literally trying to reduce the growth at least of the wieger population China enforces limits on families is in John. So women are being fitted with you at a much higher rate than the rest of China. Women with three children, which is the limit in rural. Xinjiang. are subjected to sterilization or a great risk of that. Ms Dawood yourself says, she was subjected to sterilization two thousand eighteen. The most abilities maintenance, this hustle bonetti based. So what do you think is going on here? Any seems the goal for the Chinese authorities is more than simply to to break the spirits of the weaker. I would say the situation meets every category of crimes against humanity literally has been defined by the Rome Statute International Criminal, court have forcible transfer population. You have imprisonment the prosecution against the identifiable group have the enforced disappearance of persons. It's a term that's codified international law and I think it's pretty clear and given that how should the world respond what is to be done about this? The most important thing is that governments need act they should offer asylum seekers. Should sanction officials in Xinjiang that are responsible issue banned goods made with forced labor I most important governments should speak up I think the right moment to call for action. You could see maybe China's cloud cracking a little under the weight of these horrific revelations. There are more people standing up to China and fewer standing with him today. There is a sign of hope for human rights and there is a sign of hope for the oppressed we were people in China.
Jewelry Ad Featuring Interfaith Couple Sparks Outrage in India
"Popular Indian jewelry, Brad Hanish has withdrawn advertisement featuring an interfaith couple after a right wing backlash on social media. In the advert, a pregnant Hindu woman attends a baby shower organized by her Muslim in laws.

Wisdom and Fear
"October seemed like a good month to talk about the topic of fear with Halloween and all the preparations gone at least in the US and other Western cultures. This is the month that you see all the movies on TV or about horror films and scary things and I. Thought I would be fun to talk about the concept of fear from the Buddhist perspective. And I think this is a fascinating topic to explore because all of us experience fear fear is a universal thing. We all experience it and is completely natural like all other emotions fears just an emotion. There are however learned fears and there are hardwired fears I recently read an article that talked about how. For, example, the the fear that we experience a loud noises. That's something that's hardwired in us that we don't necessarily learn that it's from day one that we fear loud noises. Also, the fear of falling seems to be one of those fears that is hardwired in US and I'm sure there are others. But for the discussion of fear I think first and foremost, it's hopeful to frame our fears within the Lens of skillful fears and unskillful fears. The Buddha taught that some see something to fear where there is nothing to fear and some see nothing to fear where there is something to fear. And this is more or less along the lines of what I WANNA talk about with this topic of fear. Useful fear may prepare us to take skillful action while unuseful fear only leads to unskillful action, and that's how I like framing. That's high like thinking about my own fears. For example, a skillful fear would be avoiding touching a poisonous snake while skillful fear may be fearing the coiled up hoes in the dark shed because I think it's a snake but an actuality, it's only coiled up hose. So that's kind of along the lines of of the Buddhist perspective of fear I'm far less concerned with talking about the fear that we think of when we think of fear of the dark fear of heights. No, I'm much more interested in talking about fears like the fear of rejection that may cause us to live skillfully a good cause us to live an. Entire life where we're not fully in harmony with our authentic selves with how we actually think and feel because if I fear, for example, the judgment of others I may be experiencing unskillful actions in my life living life a certain way to avoid the fear of judgment of others that may be an unskillful fear So that's what I want to talk about The when we talk about fear, we think of the ultimate fear, right perhaps the fear of death, the fear of separation from our loved ones the fear that we experience from a uncertainty and the unknown those are big concepts think about and I think they're good to think about. But for practical purposes, I think it's more important to think of the fears that affect our day to day lives and a lot of the experiences that were having in our day to day lives. And for me, it's important to explore. Where does my fear come from? You've heard me mentioned before in this podcast, the notion of the Buddhist teaching of craving, which is essentially what will suffering that the moment. I want things to be other than how they are suffering is what arises or discontent dissatisfaction anguish. However, you WanNa word that. But that feeling that arises when I want something to be other than how it is seems to be very intricately connected to this notion of fear I'm fearing how something is because it's not matching how I think it should be and that's one of the ideas that is talked about and Buddhism on the topic of fear, and again it's it's wanting things to be other than how they are and. I think what makes this worse as far as fear goes is that were experiencing a new layer of fear.
Seek the Things Above (Colossians 3:117)
"The passage to meditate on and pray according to today is Colossians chapter three verse one through Seventeen, and the prayer guide says to pray for all that you see in these verses to be true in your life and your relationships with others during these days. Repent of any ways that these verses have not been true in your life. So. Instead of like we normally do on this podcast is reading a verse than Santa Things about it in praying according to it i WanNa pray through the passage so colossians three one through seventeen savagely a bit longer, but I'm just going pray through it almost. Reading the passage as a prayer for these things to be true in our lives and our relationships with others especially during these days. And the God would convict us. By his word and his spirit of ways that we need to repent. In ways that these verses have not been true in our lives. So. Let's pray. Colossians chapter three starting in verse one. Oh God. We praise you. That we have been raised with Christ. So help us seek the things that are above were Christ. Is seated at the right hand of God. Oh God. Amid. So much going on in the world around. US help us to set our minds on things that are above not on things that are on earth knowing that we have died in our life is hidden with Christ right now in God. When Christ to his our life appears no, we will also appear with him glory. We can't wait for that day. So help us today to put to death. Whatever is earthly in a Scott help us to turn from repent of sexual immorality. Impurity. Passion. Evil Desire. And covetousness, which is idolatry. Knowing. On account of these, your wrath is coming. Knowing that we once walked in these things when we were living in them but now we've put them away God, help us to put away anger. Wrath. Malice. Slander. All obscene talk from our mouths. Help us not to lie to one another speak truth. Seeing that we put off the old self with its practices and put on the new self which is being renewed in knowledge after your image as our creator knowing that here, there is not Greek and Jew circumcised uncircumcised barbarian skit the and slave free. But Jesus is all in all your replay for this awareness and understanding and unity as your church we prayed you and help us to put. As your chosen ones, holy and beloved compassionate hearts we pray for these things for kindness humility. MEEKNESS and patience. Help us to bear with one another.

Who's expressed I am. is to try and create some unity amongst all the different traditions in our world. And they're very successful in getting some very high-powered leaders from all the major major traditions. To work together for the sake of harmony. Because of the success of that summit. And because of the importance of the topic as talk this evening about harmony. And just how to create it in our worlds. Because you know just disharmony between the countries and governments and religions. disharmonies in society and disharmony in your office and very often this lack of harmony in your own mind. And when is a lack of hobby was own life? especially in one's life, it creates an enormous amount of stress and struggle. This not necessarily counselor solve that. But certainly when I first learned about Buddhism especially on our became a monk. I found something fascinating all the the rules which we have to live biased monks on the most important reasons why we had those rules for the for the sake of harmony. So we could live together without much argument or any arguments in monastic community. Because they put a mentioned, very creative that when is no harmony? No possibility of getting any? Meditation without peace outside. It's very hard to find peace inside. And it's important that we learn the techniques and strategies for developing that. In. That piece. Many of you have relationships, partnerships and the national have harmony and peace not relationship. It does create an enormous amount of suffering in your life. And even this morning. Not.

About how we can know this story I'd have made some very often, but the story. About to mention. I think it's small towns as I mentioned it. Concerns Harmony. And how we can work together when we really committed when we really think we have to. And there's a story of Oh maybe twenty two, twenty, three years ago when we first starting monastery there was. A young girl, she's much older now. Who came to Perth with her husband, her husband was a mining in ahead of controversy two or three years they were young newly married without children. It was a nice adventure to come to Australia for a few years. That time you could buy a house pretty cheaply and you could sell it for a little bit more than you paid for by these days. and. So they bought the house and when the contract ended had to go back to Canada. So instead of. Getting an advocate, they decided to sell the house I with on the go from the House to buy a small yacht. And sail back to Canada. There were young, it was an adventure. and. The idea was once they reached Frank Couva, though could sell the yacht. Their mortgage back while the deposit back and buy another house a great way of travel. And it was also an adventure. Sailing through the Pacific through the island's out to. Canada. Of. Course being so close friends say. Vote. So that's to me when they arrive safely back in. TORONTO. But they said an a very interesting event it happened while they were halfway journey. Teamed, up with another. Couple who also going back to Canada. So there were two married couples. And in the middle of the voyage. So the engine broke down. So the two men, the only ones to fix the engine went into the compartments with the tools to try and fix the problem. While two women that had nothing else to do just on the day to reading magazines enjoying the sunshine. and. Of course, it's very difficult for fixing sometimes. Because the engine or the problem was difficult to discover. The two men started to getting irritated. It was very close, very cramped, very hot in that spoke compartment. Where the engine was and Eva Tation soon. became an argument and the I commend got worse and worse until they were shouting at each other.

The importance of great industrial communication
"Today's article is the importance of great industrial communication. It was written by Rick Kaiser and Rogan Jones both from AIDS software. Great Communication and refinery operations is critically important. Anything less can lead to tragedy. The authors have personally experienced losing six close friends in refinery co workers in preventable accident they in hundreds of other industrial workers might still be alive. Today had the right information been available at the right time to make the right decisions to perform the right actions given that safe teen efficiency are the key economic drivers in refinery operations to excel it. Both requires implementing and maintaining great refinery communication. Great communication can be summarized in five rules. Number one provide clear and concise information and instructions keep the message simple and focused to the target audience use the language technical jargon and acronyms clearly understood by the workers who carry out the instructions number to require feedback feedback is critical in works both ways. It verifies that the information was received in the instructions were understood and executed. It provides accountability documented. The actions taken to perform an assigned task because the feedback process exposes participants to uncertainty risk emotional exposure. All feedback must be given honestly received impartially and acted upon professionally. Three establish a maintain trust trust is all about building relationships through honesty and integrity. It provides consistent follow through an accurate information at the right time. Trust is showing empathy to others with the understanding that different points of view must always be considered. Number four ask questions actively listened to the answers? This means not only listening with your ears but also comprehending what is being said, giving your full attention to someone conveyed an idea goes a long way in building the relationship and establishing trust number five, clarify and summarize. Reflect back on what was communicated to you in summarize it to the speaker. Not only does this demonstrate that you are actively listening but that you heard correctly and fully understand the message. Oil Refineries operate continuously across multiple shifts were hundreds of workers and thousands of instruments generate millions of data values, process alarms, fuel operate observations, and shift handover notes. The rules that apply to peer to peer communication also apply to work group in human machine interfaces or H. For everyone to make the right decisions and perform the correct actions, they must have the right information from the right source in real time to achieve this some additional rules of communication apply. Number one simplify. Overload and confusion occurs when too much extraneous data is displayed without context understanding occurs when information is presented logically, and in a timely fashion, this can be accomplished by filtering all data displayed on is according to a user specific job or location to further simplify focus the information additional filters designed for a specific function can be applied providing targeted data that is clear and easy to understand. Number, to use multiple data sources, information comes from many independent sources including Skater, Dad historian, lab database, alarm, console manager round reports by collected aggregating this information into a central communications platform. It can be integrated with worker input to provide context for actions, performed and provide critical information shift handovers. Number three, provide flexibility. workflows always control the reporting and we conditions change. New reports must be quickly created or existing reports modified to capture these changes. Since each refinery is unique report designs must occur at the refinery level independent of the service provider. Number Four. Roll up roll down and go sideways communicating across the various units and between multiple shifts can involve one to one one to many many to one and many many interactions secure an intuitive pathways must exist clear easy transfer of information vertically laterally and Tim Poorly. Number five build a historical core. Tribal knowledge is critical for helping new workers, understand processes and resolve problems. Historical information must be easily accessible to all users at any time on any device. Improving worker communication and collaboration in industry provides a wide range of positive benefits including increased productivity, safety, and accountability. Lower Absenteeism and turnover rates higher job security lowered barriers to language and cultural differences greater harmony across shifts as employees were closer together.

You harmony this and harmony that because again, it's not only is noise in synchronicity and. Harmony and so. Again and we don't. Deny. This or that the kids if the kids want to talk about it, we do discuss that pink elephant and so it is real but there just just know the kids are not to engage with these naysayers and neither is the child in us and not to allow them into our midst they are evil. oftentimes, they arrive under the guise of something else such as talking the talk of Gosh only knows what in these individuals are the two hypocrites and we can spot them when we are in tune and in harmony. So, steer clear of this discord if you will know that.

"And it requires one to bow You know you bow your head as you enter in. So it's about making a humble entrance and also reminding ourselves to have that quality of humility about ourselves. Yes. So then we set an attention. Set that intention and you can close your eyes and just take a moment check in with yourself and then release any negative thoughts are stresses. I like doing this with the t very harmonious process and so maybe I'll do another podcast on my Megan power meals, incorporate this green much into it because it's a cool very cool way to not just set beautiful intentions but to be present in the moment and to if you have cool a cool little t-ball, you can incorporate that and we use that and they have a way of putting that in the hand holding that and admiring that and rotating the bowl. counterclockwise and just taking in the beauty and being in the moment again and. You can do this also with your coffee in the morning very great way to the instinct with the moment and so just to pause and reflect, and then slowly bowel and thank you for taking the time to do this afterwards. Yes and CEO acknowledged the intention that you said at the beginning of the ceremony and then just remember. That it's all a personal experience and just to enjoy it.

There was a cover like a Broadway play actually Simon and Garfunkel and opened at the pantages theatre before the quarantine and just as beautiful backdrop that flashed scenes from back in the day and then that we would see that beautiful backdrop and between this visual the harmony and the lyrics and the music, and of course, that beautiful energy that unstoppable energy and the beauty and magic of course of the moment just transfer. To that quantum field of love where we are all one and this place is possible to tap into always whenever we're one with the love, the life force, and so it's this universal language that's in harmony with the spheres if you will. And it's just Gloria.

So I liked to be aware of my surroundings and right here right now and each moment of new and be in harmony. And again in quarantine perhaps, you can seek harmony at the online library how about Doing some kind of harmonious intellectual search at the library. That's a way of seeking harmony and what pleases you at the Library Find Your own sacred space. If you can't get out now in quarantine try online there's so many cool libraries there or maybe go online to museum and again watch your own regular rhythm where you guided what what puts you in that place of harmony and lots of places again to discover and bring the harmony and peace and around the world. Yes. So, in, you know, do you play an instrument? So let's share the gift of music. and. This is a gift to be cherished and to share with our kids and. One of the best gifts that my daughter gives me has always been the gift of. simply playing me a song on her guitar piano or simply her a little tune since she was a baby to just to hear her practicing her little tiny violin. Music to my ears harmonious. And or my daughter's one of my favorite things is simply hearing her sing cappella and. Pure joy pure joy and and may I add she is good and You know we were told she's got perfect pitch and I don't say that to Brag, but where I'm going with that, is it it? It's okay if we don't have perfect pitch and so in other words we don't all hit the high seas and that's okay too and. It's about in inviting each other to play and sing anyway or simply to Hummel long until you do feel the music within because it's a soul thing. And by the way by the by the Humming intro and altro to this very podcast is son and created by my angel..

"To attain. Balance and we incorporate the physical with the overall harmony a nets. Just gorgeous. So just try this perhaps even do one yoga pose to begin simply or the Chee Kong stretch and do this with your. Calming Sounds. Of Choice whatever you choose and assign a beautiful intention to the moment, and then the pose to the very action and so again when we're not in quarantine or in our case, we're experiencing here California some of the fires. So it's best to stay indoors and but when possible, it's fun to go outdoors to experience the harmony of the moment and the physical. So perhaps bring your headset and then try to simply listen to the whatever it is music that you've got going on and incorporate that mix it up with nature or. I like the very harmony of and music of nature itself, and so try that listen to nature while slowly striking oppose stretching breathing in the moment and try that outdoors in again, always a good idea to check the air quality and again in California. Now, the air quality is not so good because of the fires. So a good idea to always be again in the moment, which way is the wind blowing, get your compass out which way facing wary of the fires coming from. Nowhere, you're at know what's going on and So these days again, we are in the masks and again indoors is best at present. So if the air quality is good, just perhaps you can open the window for that cross ventilation and let the harmony again of the east and the West and the north and the south meet and flow, and so think in terms of being aware enough to know again what direction Am I facing you know where am I and what? Direction is, is this wind coming from the north the Western stop long enough to take that beat and again we're am I where am I physically mentally emotionally? Intellectually otherwise harmony is, is this corner of the room northwest find the balance and yes if need be why not get a compass Again I'm hardcore and that's got the real.

"I know I love you know enjoying hearing music can hearing my daughter play music and saying that's Great Plain when we're not in quarantine beautiful concerts and and even the plays themselves the theater and simplicity so much beauty in the world, and so it becomes an I love great movies and films. There's harmony and that I try to find the harmony in the movies that I embrace whatever it is I don't like films that are out of sync with my rhythm that are too hostile and violent, and even the music and movies of it's much gone. And again, the comedy. It's important again and as we know to the harmony that's involved with all comedy is again tragedy plus. Comedy is tragedy plus time. So it's embracing the darkness doesn't mean we're waltzing off as light You know go nowhere silliness comics in any way it's grounded gotTa Foundation from the Depths of sorrow and pain and angst and suffering and I do find the funniest people come from that place and so there's again a harmony with the in in the Yang and not giving into the darkness, the Depression, and so finding the balance isn't always easy but possible. And so remember the play into you know most importantly, the the love embraced the love and find the balance to with love and to my way of thinking it's unconditional when we love ourselves and we love our children find that unconditional love with and and for Nature and animals and and in it's finding the balance again. with the love that we given the love that we share and there's great harmony there too and so I always say the way to that and harmony is very simple. It's through the love. So if we don't have the love, we won't have any of the things we're talking about it. All begins with love. So it's very, very simple, but that love must begin within and so it's not about going out trying to take things from others or bombastically attacking others are trying to get it's. Right here right now and now again, and now again, go to the love. Very simple. That's that quantum energy that said life force and. This is the foundation of the harmony of nature and we do it now and now again in the moment each moment a new and so. Again. Don't wait for perfection or demand perfection from anyone or anything we begin where we are and we begin new each day. And now, again, each day one day at a time one day at a time. What's Today Get your compass out? Get Your compass out what's today? Where are you? Where are you? These are cool questions because they're very, they can be very profound embrace them embrace yourself, and that's the best way to embrace our kids in the moment to cherish it as we know, the kids grow up and so embrace them right here every step of the way through it all and send it out, and so we keep going and we're to ourselves, and again though others may try to stop you keep going. Stay the course my friends stay the course one day at a time. To Vine. Own. Self. Be. True. Yes. And so we don't forget. That the universe will always the universe will always meet US halfway. So we're not out here..

"This way we hanging on to the past are we hanging onto material things hanging onto toxic relationships? Are we hanging onto taxes toxicity in general and so let it go. Let it go again and especially let go of what does not work sometimes if it's familiar, we even if it's not working. think Oh, well, it's something that's incorporated into our very. Essence and no indeed, it's not. There's always room to let go. and find the balance and again that Yin and Yang in our lives, the light and dark and Again, nothing's ever perfect. No one is perfect and they claim to be or they're expecting you to be. I would run the other way even nature itself is is not quote perfect but we are perfect with our imperfections in. So it's tragic to watch somebody trying. Desperately to be perfect So because again, it's unattainable and so perfection is a state of mind, and so we can aim for balanced the horror many in life, and so we don't go out haphazardly desperately attempting to have the perfect this the perfect that it's all it's all for not anyway and much ado about nothing all of that outside stuff and so. The harmony begins again on the inside. So I know when I meditating I do feel grounded and centered and in harmony with the universe and so. Wouldn't it be great if we could all go out from this place of harmony and this place of peace to slow it down. Breathing that foundation disharmony to make it real to not go to some Holy Roller Mumbo jumbo again, hypocritical place of talk the talk but not walking the walk but to truly begin in that quiet gentle world from within and. And Guess. What We can. We can do this and we are one in. So let's remind another. Yes. And that's that's how I guided to talk about harmony and again, there is great piece in this simple way of life of appreciating the balance and the harmony, and I always say, let's look at nature itself..

"So similarly to how Arielle had to kind of take all these musical musical moments and create like an architecture where there's patterns and there's logic and stuff I had to do that with words and the Stonehouse Savannah bear witness and better with wooded man. NFL gives there have been places that are part of nineteenth century Utopian movements that were to start a town or a building called harmony hall. And one time I was in Antiga at a girlfriend at the time. WHO's had family there so we were visiting family and there was a place? There called Harmony Hall. That was might have been a resort or something but it originally finally was a slave plantation. That was called harmony hall so they kept the name and obviously this continues to be an ongoing issue because you people get married at like plantations. It's really bizarre. Things where people want fully erase the history of a place. Oh it's gorgeous gorgeous old house and then I think as I was looking more at places called army army on the world. There were plantations in the south in the US. That were called Harmony Hall. But I think there is something about that. Dissonance against Pun intended that distance dissonance of a place called harmony hall that could refer to both the Utopian Movement and also a plantation which is the opposite of Utopia opiates literally dehumanizing people. And then on top of that this added thing of being kind of turned into like a fun thing that doesn't have the bloody dehumanizing racists history three of a plantation and the idea that calling something harmonious doesn't make it harmonious. That was something interesting to me. Every time I would would come across his name harmony hall there was always something dissonant about the history of the place. So for me. When we'RE GONNA song? It became helpful to think of it as literally a building. Something that represents harmony the highest ideal of human society but sometimes inhabited by the worst people in the world and stone Lows and better with the man never snakes takes place was dignify live lack a hopeful that these conversations. Well what are places that are like a harmony hall and you know one of the first things that came up with the White House. The White House literally a symbol of American democracy. And this gets funny. I don't WanNa say well yeah. Army holds the White House. Because that's it's not how I think about songwriting. But as we started to like figure out the logic of the song it was helpful to think of the White House as an example and this pre trump. So it's like you know it took on added resonance as we were working on it but this idea the White House represents supposedly the things that are great about American democracy and yet all sorts of knuckleheads have. I've been living in there doing terrible things long before our current president. So we're talking about a place that represents political power and that really helped me to think about the verses so if you're talking about power one verse maybe could be talk of people without power one versus the people with power and the way that I think about it pretty as simple as that verse one are the people outside the palace walls. The revolutionaries and some now found sales sales in late.

"This is what happens is like just very slowly over time. You have a song every time you sit down at the piano you mess around and and one day he started just going bomb Bam Bam Bam Bam Bam you know just another way to play the chords and and you know. I had this guitar riff that I'd tried here and there BUBBA I was hanging out with mark. Ronson he's bringing this lady Gaga Album. At the time anything just stopped by to visit I was talking to him and I just kinda mindlessly playing something it almost sounds like an exercise. You know you're kind of going up up and down. My memory is that it was like a split second decision about like. Is this riff that cool and I remember thinking like it sounds like an exercise. It's not that cool and then I remember like a voice in my head being like you should always record right. Always be recording like make a little memory. Everything musicians have to do that a lot. Because obviously you already cursed I with having kind of a a wandering mind but you also don't want to be A sociopath is be like kind of get an idea and be like standing there in the kitchen talking to somebody and being in kind of like you have to excuse me. I've creative work to do. That's like so disrespectful nutty but I do find some decent middle ground very quickly. We don't disturb the conversation very quickly make a little memo stop it immediately and so when I finally said I said okay at this idea for a song called Harmony Hall I had more to pull from but I still wasn't totally sure how it was all going to come together. I'm Arielle ruptured I along along with Ezra and some of our other friends produced father of the bride I showed him all these disparate parts. I didn't know how they work together. Any very quickly came up with the the structure. It's almost like a old movie in the kind of pre digital era where you see somebody like go to an accountant and they're just like buddy. I'm in trouble. And there's a a banker's box just like full of like messed up. Napkins and stuff and the council. Let me see what you got here. I can't make heads or tails of this right now. Let me range into this and figured out how it feels like when I roll Arielle and I'm just like I got a lot of ideas and he's like alright. Show me everything. Let's organize this. That was constantly the UH The journey that we went down to complete a song. There's a lot of different piano parts. But he put my sloppy voice memo little groove thing together with my slightly more high brow baroque piano thing and then suddenly they. It just worked together. I never thought of those two parts together but that breakdown. It's one of my favorite parts of the song.

This man could just live the life he wanted wanted to live with another man and then this woman could just go be just do whatever or I also you and it's very weird because I feel like this is <hes> weird <hes> touchy spot but I think if if people really give grace for sexual fluidity <hes> I think like there wouldn't be see this heart like some people are really paying and they just don't like if I'm in your menu.
