A highlight from Wholehearted Worship
"Now, if you can turn your Bibles, your Raps, to 1 Corinthians 14. After today, we got one more before we talk a little bit about gratitude, and then we get into the incarnation in preparation for Christmas. And we're going to pick up in verse 13, therefore, one who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind. I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing praise with my mind also. Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider say to amen your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying? For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up. I thank God that I speak in tongues more than all of you. Nevertheless, in church, I would rather speak five words with my mind in order to instruct others than 10 ,000 words in a tongue. Brothers, do not be children in your thinking. Be infants and evil, but in your thinking, be mature. In the law, it is written, by people of strange tongues and by the lips of foreigners, I will speak to this people, and even then, they will not listen to me, says the Lord. Thus, tongues are a sign not for believers, but for unbelievers, while prophecy is a sign not for unbelievers, but for believers. If therefore the whole church comes together and all speak in tongues and outsiders or unbelievers enter, will they not say that you are out of your minds? But if all prophecy and an unbeliever or outsider enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all. The secrets of his heart are disclosed, and so, falling on his face, he will worship God and declare that God is really among you. May God bless the reading of his word this morning. Let's pray. Father, as we sit under the counsel of your word, make us like trees that are planted by the river, bearing fruit and season. May your word not return void, but may you do great things through the renewing of our minds this morning. Well, there are a number of song lyrics that people mishear. Not, you know, it's not the weird Al making up new lyrics to a song, but because of all the stuff that's going on in the music and the blurring of consonants and of the sound of vowels, people hear the wrong thing. And so one of the more famous or some of the more famous ones are, there's a bathroom on the right. Yeah, Jimi Hendrix in some people's mind said, excuse me while I kiss this guy. That's not what he's saying. For some people, it's sweet dreams are made of cheese. Perhaps that's speaking about pizza dreams. I'm not really sure. But for others, they thought we built this city on sausage rolls. So I'm not sure how that happens. Dire straits apparently once saying money for nothing and chips for free. That's a good restaurant right there. I can see clearly now Lorraine is gone. Queen saying apparently in some people's minds, kicking your cat all over the place. Okay, sometimes I want to kick cats. I don't tell my children that. And the last one is I used to work with someone who's thought the song was tube steak boogie. Not sure what hot dogs or sausage have to do with the boogie, but nonetheless, that's what she thought. We can be confused about things. That's where really I'm going about this. There's a lot that can happen within the course of a worship service that can be confusing to people. They don't understand. They don't hear right. And we don't want to add to that confusion unnecessarily. And this morning, we're going to talk about wholehearted worship. And Paul continues with that theme that he has begun already about the need for intelligibility, the need for people to understand what you're saying, and I would say by extension, what in the world is going on? And so the first part of this that I want to talk about from verses 13 and 19 is that wholehearted worship engages mind and spirit. Wholehearted worship engages both the mind as well as the spirit. Paul has been talking about how love is intended to govern the spiritual gifts precisely so that we grow in faith, hope, and love. And as we grow in faith, hope, and love, we can offer to others in the course of our worship strength, encouragement, and comfort.
A highlight from Understanding of Israel and Palestine You Need To Have
"Welcome, Evangelism on Fire Nation, to today's special pod episode news bite. This is your host, Mark Thomas. We're going to jump right into today's news bite. No introduction, there's no commercials, and no outro to today's pod episode news bite. We're going to jump right into what you need to know, the understanding that you need to have of Israel and Palestine as a Jesus follower, as Christians. As Christians living in the West, which is where I stand speaking today from my city of RVA, Richmond, Virginia, how do we make sense of what could be the beginning of a major Middle East and regional conflict? Because I have been a student of the Bible long enough, 22 years, to know that the average person really doesn't understand the complexities of Israel and the historic Middle East conflict. So I would love for you to take notes today while you allow me just a moment to lay what I believe to be a very important foundation to your understanding of Israel, the Middle East, and even Bible prophecy. Number one, five words that Christians should understand concerning modern Israel, because I'm sure many of you, if we were to sit down and chat, some of you would have perhaps a cursory knowledge. Some would have absolutely no knowledge. Some in the West, look, you just really don't care as long as the bomb doesn't land in your backyard. You're impervious to anything that goes on, but here is a truth bomb for you. If you are a believer, the Bible has commanded you to be an ally of Israel in Jerusalem, in your thoughts, in your prayers, in your giving, and in your heart of concern and compassion. Truth bomb, it is impossible to be a serious student of the Bible and a dedicated believer without understanding your responsibilities and your spiritual responsibilities to Israel, to Jerusalem, and to God's chosen people. Cannot get a good evangelism on fire, boom. Here are five words that Christians should understand concerning modern Israel. Now these are obviously going to be brief. Feel free to go back and do more of an in -depth study. I cannot do an exhaustive study on all these in the very short news bite time that we have today. Number one, Hamas. That's the group taking full responsibility for this heinous attack. Hamas is an aggressive, fundamentalist, militant movement in one of the Palestinian territories, two major political parties. Word number two, Fatah, formerly known as the Palestinian National Liberation Movement is a Palestinian nationalist and social democratic political party. They are the counterpart of Hamas. Word number three, Palestine. Although the concept of Palestine regionally in its geographical extent has been fluid throughout modern history and ancient history, in the Middle East, as I speak, Israel and Palestine, don't miss this truth bomb, share the land west of the Jordan River. Very important that you understand that if you're going to understand at least the geopolitical nature of this conflict, Palestine and Israel share the same land west of the Jordan River using the word share lightly. Israel is predominantly a Jewish state while Gaza and the West Bank are Palestinian and mostly Muslims and Arabs. So if you can imagine just in that sentence, the powder keg of having a small territory with multiple political groups and agendas, two of which exist to exterminate every Jew from the face of the planet, to have all of that in a small area occupying the same land, borders of which they do not even agree on. Number four, West Bank. People hear that all the time in the news. Here's why it's important to know about the West Bank. The West Bank is one of two Palestinian territories. Don't forget that. There are two Palestinian territories and they don't share the same borders. The West Bank is located within the country of Israel and it's the larger of the two territories at approximately 2 ,173 square miles. The West Bank stretches across the eastern border of Israel and along the West Banks of the Jordan River in most of the Dead Sea, which is why it has received the name the West Bank. The holy city of Jerusalem is considered by international law as part of the West Bank with East Jerusalem being claimed as the capital by both the Israelis and the Palestinians. So throw that complexity into what we've already discovered. They both claim Jerusalem as their capital. Number five, Gaza Strip. The Gaza Strip is the second and smaller of the two Palestinian territories and it's on the eastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Egypt on the southwest for about 11 kilometers and Israel on the east and north for about 51 kilometers. Both the West Bank and Gaza Strip were captured by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967. There are over 5 million Palestinians combined living in those two territories. Muslims comprise 85 % of the population of the West Bank and 99 % of the population of the Gaza Strip. So there in a very brief nutshell is an overview of five words that you'll hear continually, have heard continually on the news when we deal with the Middle East complexities and now war. Listen, if you as a Christian are going to understand what is going on, take the time to re -listen to this news bite and go over those five words. Fill in the blanks with your own study, but at least digest these five words and phrases and territories because until you understand that, you're not going to understand the detail of Bible prophecy in this area.
A highlight from Session 2 Evangelism
"Today we start with evangelism defined. We need a what is evangelism and the slide is just here to help. Everything that's up here on the screen is also on your sheet. By the way, the word evangelism itself doesn't appear in the KJV, it doesn't appear there at all. But the word euangelia, euangelixo, I think I have that down here, the word evangelist appears three times and that's Acts 21 .8 where it speaks of the house of Philip, the evangelist. And in Ephesians 4 .11 where he says he gave some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastor teachers. And then 2 Timothy 4 verse 5 where he says, do the work of an evangelist, recommending that to Timothy the pastor. So the word evangelist appears there but the word evangelize as such is not in the King James but it appears there in various forms. Many times the word euangelixo or any of the declension of that, euangelixo, it is related to the word euangelion which is the gospel and euangelixo, I bear the good news, I bear the gospel, I bring the gospel. And I've listed some ways it's used here. Matthew 11 .15, one word, have the gospel preached. One word for those five words, a form of that word. Luke 4 .18, to preach the gospel, that appears in Acts 16 .10, Romans 1 .15, Romans 15 .20, 1 Corinthians 1 .17, 2 Corinthians 10 .20, there you have the word, one word translated to preach the gospel. Luke 7 .22 and again in 2 Peter 1 .25, the gospel is preached. One word, euangelion or euangelixo, I should say. Luke 8 .1, showing the glad tidings. Luke 9 .6, preaching the gospel, one word for all three words. Luke 20, verse 1, preached the gospel. Acts 8 .25, 14 .7, 14 .21, Romans 10 .15, preach the gospel and again in that same verse bring glad tidings. Same word, 1 Corinthians 9 .16, I preach the gospel, Galatians 4 .13, Galatians 1 .8, preach any other gospel. And so it has the word in King James, any other, but the word, preach the gospel, is one word in the Greek there, euangelixo, 1 Thessalonians 3 .6, brought good tidings, Hebrews 4 .2, 1 Peter 1 .12, those that have preached the gospel unto you. And 1 Peter 4 .6, the gospel preached. So that word appears many, many times, let's look at it some more here. I better keep the computer up to date with me here. Whoops, what am I doing wrong here? I thought I just punched here, what do I do? I'm going to have to have Chris come back and tell me what to do, something's froze up here. What did I punch that time? Alright, I'm rushing it too fast, alright, we'll catch up with that in a bit. Luke 3 .18, 4 .43, 16 .16, and all of those references there, I'll go through all of them. Every one of them I've listed down here from the above references we find 48 times the word euangelixo appears in the New Testament. Other references which I've not listed where the word is translated declared and showed. The frequent use of this word in the Greek New Testament tells us how important the Lord considers this matter of evangelism. The word preached the gospel or related phrases as a translation of the one word translated into English, evangelized. And though it doesn't appear in our King James Version, it does appear in the Greek New Testament. So, let's note that next paragraph. In addition to these 48 references involving that word, there are an additional 56 references in the New Testament that have the word gospel, a translation of euangelion. This makes a total of 114 verses in the original that speak of the gospel and the proclamation of the gospel. And so, it is an important word. I want to see where I am. Where do you find the word on this, the frequent use of this word? That's way back at the first point, isn't it? Ah, right where I am. I'm right there. Now, let me figure out what I punched a minute ago. I think I did. I've got it going now. Alright. The meaning of evangelism. The meaning of evangelism. John Stott stated, the deep Bible doesn't, wow, something happened there. Does not just contain the gospel, it is the gospel. He was commenting on Galatians 3 .8, the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, in thee shall all nations be blessed. Now, of course, John Stott would not be in our camp, and I'd agree with his statement, though he might not agree with us stating that we ought to preach the whole counsel of God. And we're going to need to keep that in mind all the way through. We need to preach the whole counsel of God. Yes, sir? Some of the reading for Dr. Rice, he said that if so many or evangelism was the main business of the Christian, do you think that's an accurate statement? The question he asked was this, and the reason I'm repeating the question is so it gets on the tape. The question he asked was this, in the reading from Dr. Rice, he said that the main business is the business of evangelism. Am I giving it right? And he said, what is my appraisal of that? I would believe that statement is very true. Our preaching ought not be totally evangelism and evangelistic. In fact, our business, he asked the question, the way he phrased it, the main business is solely, I'm going down the road here a ways, I'm going to give you an article that appeared, I'm trying to remember who it was, I think it was written by Dr. Gordon, I'm not sure. Anyway, I've got one in the notes here. Keeping to the main issue, keeping to the main business, and it's quite an article. It wasn't Dr. Gordon. I can't even remember who wrote it now, but I've got it to hand out and I want you to take it. I believe the main business of all our churches is the matter of winning souls and missions, outreach, winning, evangelizing. Now that doesn't mean in doing that, that all of my preaching ought to be evangelistic and everything about my church should be evangelism. I need to be building up the Christians and we're going to come to that. I need to be building up the Christians and evangelism doesn't involve just winning the soul. The evangelism involves discipling that person after he's born again. I think we'll cover much of that, but I'm not saying that I disagree with Dr. Rice. I'm saying I may be adding to him, adding some things to what he would say, but I believe the one thing we neglect an awful lot in our churches and look for excuses to neglect is this matter of evangelism. We come along with the idea there are other things more important and we get sidetracked. Up in Marshalltown, Iowa, there is the Fellowship Baptist Church up there. The pastor at one time was Dr. Glenn Jaspers and David Jaspers pastored the church. He's now president of Maranatha. David Jaspers pastored the church for a time. And you walk in their building, in the foyer, right there in the foyer is a great big sign I've never forgotten. It says, let's keep the main business the main business. And what they're saying is the emphasis around here needs to be on evangelism, keeping the main business the main business. And fellas, that's exactly what I fail to do a lot of the time. I let other things crowd in and push me and I have to check up on myself all the time. And too often, I'm not keeping the main business the main business. And so I'm saying to you, I believe evangelism is desperately important. Alright, now when you ask a question, I'll answer your question. I will give you opportunity, now feel free to raise your hand, unless you've got a real long question, then I want you to be up here sitting, give you an opportunity to come up here and be seated so you can get right up to a microphone. They're supposed to have a microphone standing, we will have one, for long winded questions. But than other that, I'm going to answer, I'll re -state the question here. He needs a coffee, who handed these out, do you have two of them? Okay, alright, he's got one, thank you. So I believe the statement by Dr. Rice is true and however, let me go back, you'll make a mistake if you say, well it's a main business so every sermon is going to be evangelistic. I believe every sermon should contain evangelism. There should be the gospel in every message I bring, enough gospel to challenge a person to get saved. But my business, let's go to Ephesians 4 .11, he gave some apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors, teachers, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry. Now we'll come to this later, we might as well get to it now. For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, the second word for there is E -I -S, unto. That could be translated, that we are perfecting the saints, who is that? The evangelist and the pastor teacher, to perfect or mature the saints, the word perfect there is the idea of maturing the saints, maturing the saints unto the work of the ministry. So what should it be? We should understand that it shouldn't be that we are in the pastorate and we're standing in the pulpit to develop others so they'll go out and give out the word of God. That we're maturing the believers unto the work of the ministry, unto the edifying of the body of Christ. Now I think that's an important verse to have as a key in your philosophy, Ephesians 4 .11 -13. I think it's vital that you have those and that you memorize them and keep that in mind. When we do that, it says the evangelist and the pastor teacher, for the perfecting of the saints, for the maturing of the saints, unto the work of the ministry. What am I saying? Evangelism is the main thing and I ought to be developing Christians so they can go out and be evangelists. So they can go out and do the work of evangelism. And that means that my messages, and I think this is the way I operate, my messages are primarily to Christians. And nearly every message I bring, I could probably say this wasn't a thoroughly evangelistic message. My messages are to bring a message to the Christians to help develop them so they can go out and be better soul winners. But all the time I have in mind, we need to develop soul winners around this church and evangelism is a major thrust. Did I answer your question? Yes sir. Alright, thank you. Okay, let's come on to Roman numeral II, the meaning of evangelism. And we'll come on down to a second quote by John Stott. Oh, I went a little past that, no here we go again. It went on beyond that. Second quote, through the Bible, God is Himself actually evangelizing, that is communicating the good news to the world. All scripture preaches the gospel, God evangelizes through it. However, again I'd say that all of us fellas need to remember we're called to preach the whole counsel of God. And you see guys like John Stott and those men do not believe that separation is a doctrine. That's the problem with the new evangelical crowd. They do not believe separation is a doctrine. I believe you've got a doctrine of inspiration and you've got a doctrine of the virgin birth and the resurrection and a doctrine of separation. And we should respect it as a doctrine and preach and teach it just like we do other doctrine and realize that separation is a vital issue. But the main business of a church is to evangelize and win souls. Alright, let's go on. Capital letter A, the Bible is really the best sourcebook, capital letter A, the proclamation of the gospel. Now, we see from these notes given above, it means to give the gospel the good news of salvation, to get out the message.
A highlight from Encore of Episode 2: Jon Cassie: Game-Based Learning
"Hey, it's Batsheva. I've pulled this episode out of the archive vault for you, in case you hadn't heard it before. But if you have already heard it, well, you might want to listen again because this time you'll know all the answers to the 5 -Minute Game Show. And also because there's always something to learn from my wonderful guests. With the exception of adding this intro, I'm bringing you the original episode in its original form, which is also kind of a time capsule. So enjoy. The Arting Institute presents Overthrowing Education with your host, Batsheva Frankel. Today's episode is sponsored by Edu Game -o -rama! My students are so bored. I've tried to pepper my lectures with jokes, funny PowerPoints, and once I even tap danced throughout my class. The students just complained of headaches. I'm not the best tap dancer, as it turns out. What can I do to engage my students more? You need to change your bored students into board game students. What do you mean? Why sounding deep male voice? I mean, it's time to get with the 21st century. It's time for Edu Game -o -rama! Ed? The Guru -Lama? Uh, no. Edu Game -o -rama! It's the quick acting wand that you wave over your lessons and turn them into critical thinking games and student -centered gamified learning activities, guaranteed to engage even the most disaffected student. Is that all it takes? Just a wave of the Edu Game -o -rama wand? Well, that and a lot of creativity and work on your part. I'll do it. I'm saying goodbye to frontal teaching and hello to giving my students a deeper understanding and more engaging experiences. Edu Game -o -rama! Order your wand today! Side effects of Edu Game -o -rama may include complete student engagement and deeper learning. Thank you for joining us here at the Arte Institute for Overthrowing Education, a humorous and helpful podcast for positive change. I'm your host, Batsheva Frankel. In today's episode, Game Changers, I interview games and gamification expert John Cassie. In our conversation, we reveal lots of tips and tools to inspire educators to integrate this engaging pedagogical approach. If you are a student who loves games or just wants a more hands -on and fun way to learn, pass this episode on to your teachers. At the end of my talk with John, I subject him to our five -minute game show, of course. And then, for our segment, In the Trenches, with real teachers and students telling their stories, we have a really special treat. Educator and professional storyteller, Mikayla Bly, tells her hilarious award -winning tale about her gamified curriculum. Give a listen. You won't be sorry. But before we get into all that good stuff, I want to answer a question I've heard quite a bit since starting this podcast. What exactly is the Arte Institute? Because we always start the show with the Arte Institute presents Overthrowing Education. So let me tell you. About seven years ago, I started teaching at this amazing school called Arte Preparatory Academy in Los Angeles. I immediately connected in an educationally philosophical way with the head of Arte Prep, Jim Hahn. We constantly geeked out over the best and most engaging practices, ideas and approaches. And we worked with the faculty to keep making the school better and better. But Jim and I have another broader goal, which is to help all educators, students and parents understand what great education could and should be. And thus, the Arte Institute was founded. To learn more about it and about Arte Preparatory Academy, find links at overthrowingeducation .com. And now here we go. Today on Overthrowing Education, my guest is John Cassie, who I first met after I read his book, Level Up Your Classroom, The Quest to Gamify Your Lessons and Engage Your Students. It was such a great book. So I checked his website, which is, by the way, johncassie .com, and I read his educational philosophy and I immediately knew that we would be friends and that we had to work together. So more on that in a minute. So first, I'm going to tell you about John. He's been a teacher and education leader since 1997 at independent schools in Dallas, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and in Orange County, the one in California. He is currently director of innovation at TVT Community Day School in Irvine, California. And in his very cool job, he collaborates with teachers and learners to use data to improve instruction and develop curriculum in STEAM, design thinking, digital literacy, maker informed methods and, of course, gamified learning, which is one of the things we're going to talk about today. He's also traveled extensively to speak and consult on curriculum design, program development, game based learning and gamification and education, as well as GLBTQ issues in independent schools. So he's done a lot of really great stuff. John is also the founder of Game Level Learn, which also, by the way, has a great educational podcast. So make sure to give that a listen. And last November, Game Level Learn teamed up with us at the Arte Institute to present the first annual Game Level Learn Con for educators. It was an amazing day of professional development and a lot of fun. So if you want information on Game Level Learn Con 19, check out either gamelevellearn .com or thearteinstitute .org for details. Wow, that was a lot of introduction, but he was well worth it. Hi, John. Hi, Beth. How are you? I'm good. I have so many questions for you and so many things I want to discuss because I love speaking with you about education. Same. And you're so passionate and have so many great experiences. So first, I want to find out how did you get involved in education to begin with? It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do. I've never had any career goals that were not well for about six months. I thought about hotel and travel administration, like doing a business degree, but that's better left for an entirely different podcast. Yeah, things we're glad you didn't do. Yeah, right, right. So I've always wanted to be in education. I thought for the longest time that I'd be in a university setting. But as it became clear that the university setting was really much more about research and less about teaching, that didn't feel quite like the right fit for me as much as being in there, working with teachers, teaching and learning and innovating on teaching and learning practice, which has always been something that's driven me. So I hear that I find the same. And so I'm glad you did take that route led to some great stuff. So let's I want to jump right in and talk about the difference between games and gamification, because I love them both. I use them both. And I think there are many ways to use both in a class, but I think a lot of people don't really understand the difference. So let's talk about that. Yeah, it can be a little tricky when you're getting into this particular method to to fully grasp what's being talked about. Right. A game based learning environment is an environment where you're taking some kind of a game that has been published or designed as a game, which means that it's got a set of rules and there are ways to win. And it's meant to be entertaining and enlightening and a mental challenge and all of that. But it's in the service of playing the game. It's in the service of the game's rule set. There are plenty of games that exist that you could use very productively in a classroom setting, play the game as designed, and you actually could get an executed learning objective out of it. Before you continue, I want you to give a few examples of those. And then after you talk about gamification, I'm going to talk about the third category, which I call deeper learning games, which I'll explain. That's that's my jam. So everybody tell what are some games, like if I'm a history teacher or I'm a science teacher or something, what are some games like out of the box games that might be really cool that you can think of? So just a couple that come to mind. There's a game that was published and I'm talking only in the tabletop space. I'm not talking about video games. There's nothing wrong with video games. They're dynamite. You know what? I'll raise one just to give the example. OK, but I talk more about tabletop because it's a little bit more accessible. Right. I think one example is a game called Codenames. Codenames is a game about vocabulary pattern recognition. So you are giving if you're giving clues, you're looking at a grid of words, five by five. So twenty five words and you've got a little card in front of you that tells you which words of those twenty five. You're responsible for getting your team to guess the team that wins is going to have a clue giver who's able to look at the words and say, OK, well, if I say the word Jupiter three, they're going to pick these three words because they all have some kind of a connection to that word Jupiter. Right. Or, you know, sunshine, too, or whatever. You know, it's like I think sunshine connects to two words. So you're going to tell people that now that's dynamite for vocabulary building, because if you can make analogies and connections between words, not only do you understand the word on its surface level, but you understand it on a more abstract level. Right. So for, you know, all those people doing vocabulary building, anything in your discipline that has vocabulary building within it, you just pull the codenames words and proceed. Right. There's another great game called Machi Koro. That one I haven't heard of. Yeah. Machi Koro is a game about community building. So what you do is you have a little pool of money and you use that pool of money to buy increasingly complex buildings that you use to form a town. And the town, by virtue of what you choose to build, generates revenue based on how other players act and on die rolls that you make and what have. But it's a really nice, easily accessible game to understand how communities are built. That's great. Yeah. A game that I use in my entrepreneurship class called Letters from Whitechapel is a collaborative game where one character plays Jack the Ripper. Right. So it's a it's a high school thing. Right. And everyone else plays police trying to find him. Jack moves around the board using a game mechanic called hidden movement. So the Jack player is writing where he is on a piece of paper behind a screen. The police are investigating across the board, trying to find evidence of where he was. They can make an arrest if they arrest. They declare an arrest action on Space 28. If Jack is in Space 28 when they arrest, the players win. Now, I use that to teach collaboration because the game is so perfect. It's such a pure example of a cooperative, collaborative game that the only way that you can win really is to have effective collaborative team practices. And businesses that have those are more effective than businesses that don't. And learning environments that have those are more effective than ones that don't. And so since collaboration is such a central skill in entrepreneurship and certainly it's certainly important everywhere else. But in entrepreneurship, it's critical. It's a great way right out of the box to teach that skill. So games like those are examples, right? Codenames, great in a middle school setting. Machi Koro, totally playable in upper elementary. Letters from Whitechapel, you want to play it in a high school environment. And, you know, if you go to gamelevellearn .com, I've written about 50 essays looking at the different kinds of game mechanics that exist in games. And giving you the top five, what I think of the top five games in each of those mechanics. So if you wanted to do something that was about collaboration, you could just go to the site, look at the essay on collaboration. Pick one of those games and you'd be good to go. Yeah, I have to say that your website is just full of resources and it's a great thing to check out again. For people that's gamelevellearn .com. That's the games. Yeah, it's game based. That's game based. I want you to talk about gamification, which I also have been using more and more in my classroom. I've done some really cool stuff with my honors English Shakespeare class, history classes. It's great. So tell me about it. Now, gamification is a term used to describe the application of game elements like game mechanics or reward systems or winning or, or, or, where they're not strictly speaking incorporated into a game itself. A classroom gamified uses the procedural tricks that make games fun to play in the service of making learning more engaging, more social, more collaborative or more critically focused, depending on what your objective is. And, you know, in the book and, you know, level up your classroom, I go on at length about different ways to do that. But the idea here is take a game that's fun to play and look at how mechanically the game works. Then strip away the game content, leaving only the game's engine. From there, insert your content into the game's engine and away you go. It's great. And it really does help engage students. And you can use those mechanics to go to deeper places. It isn't about doing the Jeopardy board answer thing. It's about really using the mechanics to move the curriculum forward. That's right. Yeah, it has to be in service of a learning objective, right? This is one of the things that I say and, you know, my co -host on the Game Level Learn podcast, we say all the time, we make two points. One, this is not about the game. It's about the learning objective. The learning objective might be serviced by an environment that is either collaboratively or individually competitive or where the kind of leveling character development concept that you get in some board games and you get in some video games would be useful. Then deploy them because they're going to make the learning better. If they're not going to do that, do something else. And that's I think sometimes folks bogged down there. The second thing we say is, quote, play all the games. Because if you're going to do this effectively, the more games you have yourself played, the more different engines and mechanics you will have encountered. And therefore, you'll be able to say, I see for this learning objective, I really want to bring in a tile building mechanic like in Spring Meadow. OK, I can do that. Or I really need to build sort of these interesting decks of cards for players, player learners, like in the game Dominion. But if you've never played Dominion, you'd never have the idea, which is one of the things that I think sometimes trips people up. They hear game based learning or they hear gamification. They think what we're talking about is a slightly more sophisticated version of Jeopardy or Monopoly or Sorry. Or Chutes and Ladders. Well, you know, if the only poetry you've ever read is a Mother Goose fable, why do you think that you would be able to use it in any kind of meaningful way? No. Read more poetry and you'll be able to do more poetry. You know, if this is something that's of interest to you, but you're not a gamer, go to and go anywhere. There's plenty of game cafes. There are game days and libraries. There are friendly local game stores everywhere, and most of them are full of really keen, friendly people. And if you went up and said, hey, I'm trying to learn some things, anything you can teach me, there's always going to be dozens of people in those places who are like, absolutely. Come on in. Let me teach you this thing. Let me teach you this. Let me teach you this. Right. And, you know, as you learn different kinds of games, you'll know what you want to pick up next or what you want to borrow next or what you want to buy next. And that's how it goes. It's really true. One of the games that's my biggest seller that I created that's called Feed Your Wolves. I was inspired because I saw a lot of the students at my school every morning. I'd come in and they'd be playing these games like Magic the Gathering and games like that that involve interesting cards and die and things that they had to do. And so I was very inspired to create my game sort of based on some it's not like those, but it was definitely inspired by those. And that's the thing. Let yourself be inspired by what you see that your students are interested. What games are they really interested in and let that inspire. I wanted to talk about deeper learning games because that's my as you know, that's my thing. And deeper learning games are games that can be used as assessments. They can be used as part of a project based learning unit. But the idea behind a deeper learning game is that it's really a sophisticated critical thinking type of a game. It's not again, it's not Jeopardy or the whatever version of Candyland. It is, for example, a way to express an idea. So, for instance, in my school, we were doing something about political philosophies. And the students had to create a game that in every way, including the pieces in the way, if it was a board game or whatever the mechanics of the game were, every part of it had to somehow reflect whatever that political philosophy was or the specific topic within that political philosophy that they chose to do. And the playing of that game, when people would come play that game, they could understand what that political philosophy was. Well, you can do that. I've done it on a seventh and eighth grade level. You can do it on a fourth grade level. There's so many ways to adapt that kind of idea once one gets the hang of it. And you can teach your students how to create this kind of deep game where every part of the process is reflecting, like you said, that whatever that big idea is, whatever the learning objectives are, whatever the people who do understanding by design, whatever understanding during is, those are the things that are so meaningful. And then students remember them. I have students come up to me that I had 20 years ago saying, do you remember that game? Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Of course I remember that game. They did. So do I. It was great. So those are the things that really kids get so involved in their education. And again, they can be used as a really authentic assessment. It can also be used as a tool for project based learning to actually move your curriculum forward. So great ways to use them. And anybody who wants more details about that can certainly contact me on that one. If you want to come to our Game Level Learn Con 19, then you can certainly learn more about it and we'll have information about that again. So, OK, I know kind of the moment in my teaching early on in my career when I realized how games and gamification could be so effective. Was there a moment or was there something that happened in your career where you were like, oh, my gosh, this is totally the way to go? I mean, I think it's sort of like my sense of wanting to be in this career from the start anyway. It's very much the same from the earliest days of my teaching career. I've always incorporated role playing elements or game elements or different kinds of game mechanics into what I was doing and have continued to do so. You know, ever since, as I become more and more kind of aware of game spaces and what what different games are and what they can do, how they can teach us, et cetera. Yeah, I think it's always been a factor to your point about students coming back and talking to you years after in my very first year of teaching. I played a game with some students called Shape Land, which was about the creation of an industrial class structure and how wealth is distributed in an industrial system unfairly. It concentrates wealth in the hands of people who already had wealth to begin with. And students come back to me, you know, even now, say that was one of the most extraordinary experiences I've ever had playing that game. And, you know, that was more than 20 years ago. So I want to add to the mix of other kinds of games. One of the things I did early on in my career was I used to create these crazy game shows and the students loved them. You know, they all wanted to take turns being the guests and the participants, but they also gave them stuff to do as a studio audience that they had to participate and pay attention. And it was always so much fun. And then the other thing that I did with games is simulations. Sure, sure. They're really moving through space. I mean, there was one where we took over. We didn't take over the school, but we used a lot of the school space in this incredible simulation that was for history class. And it was very moving and really effective. So those are also different kinds of ways that people can use to add games. For sure. Yeah. I did something like that early in early days, a simulation about Salem. And I sort of set up the playing space, which was an external, like a field like Salem town, so that folks knew where they were living in comparison to other people who were accusing or being accused. Wow. Right. Because one scholar, you know, on the Salem hysteria says it really has a lot to do with folks who are part of an in -crowd and in -groups and out -groups. And so that was fascinating.

So no one's getting out of no no person right now that doesn't have to or or of course you know it's for you know nobody's recreationally traveling right now or spending money on entertainment. They're not able to do that as much. And maybe they're spending a lot more money at restaurants. I think we are. Then we ever did because we love You know we love. our family. Loves to to to have good food together And we've added the different restaurants to our to our menu because i think it was A good reason to our Our menus especially when a lot of businesses need you to do that. So that's it. Those five words are the driving factor behind. What's going on right now. Obviously there's a lot of other numbers you can sit there and stare at and there's there's always gonna be on every real estate website and again all the experts everybody who was making predictions on youtube and everything else you go ahead and listen to them but the fact is the what overrides. All of that is those five words. The five words are people buy what they love okay and they love to buy even more than they lose to south okay. It's it's it's it's a it's To me is a scientific fact that again people you know people hate to be sold. But they love to buy. They love to buy because a lot of times. You're buying a new lifestyle. You're buying for example. The home that i'm selling right now in the scarborough This home backs onto a ravine. It's a sixty foot lot. There's three bedrooms. Three bathrooms plus a ben slash zoom room. There's also a been pige basement pub in the basement that with a walkout to the ravine. So it's really hard for anyone to compete. When you don't have the place that your you know that you would call your dream home. And i want that. I do desperately want that for every one of you listening. I want you to have whatever it. Is that your dream home. It's your dream condo. Your dream loft Dream home whatever it might be in no for some people. It's not easy. But i also come from a background where none of this was ever handed to me. I come from a construction family. Might might might. My parents came over here in the sixties so there was no. There was no silver spoons. There was no advantages for me. This was all stuff that i wanted to achieve from being around other people who i knew had that had these things so i've been trying to make sure that i help you guys with that. Basically making sure that you know about all the programs that are going on right now. There's over a billion dollars that's available for first time buyers if you need it so there's no excuse there's programs in place to get you on the get you into the system to get you to begin to understand how leverage works pow equity works. This is all stuff that if you've been paying a mortgage sorry you rent for five or ten years Whatever the amount that you're paying my guests and you can ask your landlord. Hopefully they'll tell you the truth but my guess is a lot of you have already paid the mortgage down. Some of you may be more than one. That's not the dream that most people have again going into their twenties and thirties and forties is paying off other people's mortgages for a decade or two or three and and and not doing that for themselves. Because the one thing is you have to remember as a renter if you are one is that not only did you pay down the mortgage but during that time very likely that property has also gone up in in in a huge amount in terms of leverage in added equity for that landlord and of course they're going to be able to benefit from that on top of the fact that you pay rent so if you're able to pay rent you're probably right now able to pay a mortgage i know it's not an easy task and yes sometimes you're going to have to travel so there's a reason i keep a set of dice in my jacket when i'm working with you guys and i A meeting with you sometimes is literally a matter of rolling the dice and you'll see a number between one and six and you might have to travel one to six hours and sometimes it's as simple as okay. Let's roll the dice okay. There's a four. Where can you get to within four hours in. That's part of for a lot of people what might have to do to get on the ladder or you might have to adjust your property requirements. There's a whole bunch of stuff that needs to happen. But it's all doable. And there's a bunch of people that are doing it aside from you. You're not the only one. So anyways i try to stick the ten minutes or less with these things if i can. But the point of this podcast was people. Buy what they love. And i hope that you are able to do that and if you need my help to do that. Just don't hesitate in head over to real estate pod dot com. Thanks for listening..

I mean and also here's the other thing too the first contract. That bear off the raiders. He absolutely earth one hundred percent like he was authentic and like it was not his fault is other. the raiders. didn't have money. They chose to spend money on like channel. But that's not his fault you know like what like that. You know he was grace. Thank the second contract different story. Brian cashman's credit didn't sign it. That was But yeah like. He earned that he d day but there's constant perception that he was overpaid destroyed Or destroyed the raiders. Baseball because baseball just committed baseball's committed to warring against its most expensive players. I mean it's sort of interesting that mike trout has managed to avoid this by having no personality or any sort of public at all right. I mean tell me a fact. You know about mike trout the base best baseball player in the world right. Well he's white. He's from new jersey. And that's it right and we. Nobody else does anything about mike trout. Because that's how based hall likes. Recent listened to the the audiobook of the the fairly recent geography of jim bowden and that just goes up again and again like the ideal baseball player.

He tells you a lot about like the difference between how athletes. Cd's stop and ally general disrespected clyde drexler in the documentary. It's all very painful to watch. I actually actually now. we're here. I have the jerry krause story. Okay good i think i think this is the year that rod that you had taken a quarter or two off and so i i was at a game and this was right.

Get the money out now
"We didn't get any relief. Bill from the congress and i i want i want to tell me why i wish i knew. I mean honestly. There's been this ongoing stalemate for months and months and months and the need the scale of the need for a bill is just demonstrable at this point right if you look at the numbers for various measures of economic hardship things like hunger or housing insecurity on employment They're huge so it's not as if congress doesn't know that there's a huge amount of need urgent need for them to act particularly given the fact that something like two dozen additional programs that have been holding families together are about to expire around christmas. But there seems to be this logjam over what should actually go into the bill and you know what what tools would be acceptable to help these families and businesses for that matter sue journalists. Take that a little bit farther right. We've got a piece coming up from kimberly adams here in a minute on liability protections which mitch mcconnell wants the state the democrats want state and city Funding to help them through the squeeze Is it possible. Catherine says they can't not know. And i'm going to throw you the same question D- do they really not know. I don't know the answer to that is impossible. It's impossible to now. I mean. I think i think what's really interesting in what is going to continue to be. The core issue is that lawmakers on both sides recognize that there is a massive new. Do something you know. There's there's fairly broad consensus that. They need to come to an agreement that they need to do before christmas. That we can't just you know sort of any year in not not come up with a solution in. I think that's why it's so surprising. And so interesting that it's taken so long to get there and it does seem like it's really boiling under these two issues at this point that's the whole distance between them But you know these two issues could be enough to scupper it. do you think katherine that. It's possible that they go home for christmas. And nothing is done and they say know what biden's coming in in january and let the new congress in the new administration figure it out. Unfortunately i think it is. I think it's a terrible failure of leadership. If that happens. I mean it's been an unforgivable failure of leadership that they haven't come to some sort of deal by now But the idea that in the days after christmas you'll have tons of people who get evicted. Who lose their Their unemployment benefits who suddenly have to start paying their student loan bills again have to pay their their mortgage payments again. Things that were in forbearance I think that would be a terrible terrible outcome. But i would not. I would not put it beyond congress for that to happen. Unfortunately because again it's been months at this point and they don't seem to have Endured any sort of political retribution. For not acting and so. What's to keep them from doing that soon. I hope that they act. But i'm very concerned that they won't do. You know a quick turn to the federal reserve here as we talked about perhaps in this segment last time you were on but definitely on the program at some point in the last couple of weeks. treasury six year mnuchin As we all know has decided that the for some of the federal reserve beginning programs under the care act ought to end it. It's worth pointing out that. While they were undersubscribed they did add some stability here. And i think it's also worth pointing out that they were undersubscribed. bydesign right. They were they were created on terms. That were meant to be extra. And some of them were created to work in exactly the kind of environment that we're about to go into a situation in which things are getting worse credit availability. Use may be getting a little bit worse as a result and you know companies and municipalities need. Need that backup auction in our sort of taking away right right as it may be needed. So i'm gonna. I'm gonna go sooner than i anticipated to. The old standby On a friday on this program. What is jay. Powell thinking genus. Malik you get to go first. The fed meets next week. The chairman will a conference and there will be all kinds of questions but in in five words or less. What do we think is going through his mind right now. Going to get worse before it gets better. He told me that's like nine. But okay all right. i'll buy that catherine. What do you think. Get the money out. Now about it Well look it's the mantra. I think of a lot of economists at this point. Other economic policymakers powell among other federal reserve officials have said as much not in those exact not in that five word phrasing but that they want more fiscal relief. That the ball is really in congress's court at this point to get something done that. The fed will continue to use whatever tools it has available. Whatever their usual You know boilerplate his on that but really they need help from congress
Feeder Birds With Emma Greig
"Watching them feeding them all on the rise this year So i suspect you had an uptick In in participation you this year with feeder. Watch with when i say this year i mean last fall through late this winter. Yeah there were more people than ever watching their feeders. And normally cedar watch is a program that runs from november through early april. But if you remember this past spring we were all stuck at home a lot more than usual so we went ahead and extended. The feeder watched season until the end of april. And so many people wrote to us saying thank you for extending the season and they submitted so many more checklist so i think that with all of us spending a lot more time at home. People are really starting to appreciate even more. The birds at are around their homes. None of the bird. Send thank you notes to you. I just the feeder watchers. And that the numbers i mean the number of of americans who are birdwatchers. And then i don't know i think the last ones i read were like two thousand sixteen numbers like forty five million watchers and no one point eight billion dollars spent on equipment and i can't remember how much on bird seed but it was more than that even i think wasn't it. It's like four nine or yeah exactly and billions of dollars spent on birds the and and gardening supplies for birds. So it's really a very popular pass time but a really wonderful too because what's better than connecting with the nature. That's right out your window right and so you're extending again this year Season a we may. We haven't fully decided yet. But i can reason why we couldn't keep it open through the end of april but but i don't know for sure yet don't know for sure. Okay all right so so. I love looking at sort of you know that me to do i. How do i compare to other. People are seeing that sense of community that can provide when i look at the data. You have this wonderful website. And i'm going to give lots of links to that. We'll talk about some of the aspects. I love looking at always. Look i and you just sent out the winter news Sort of the the postseason newsletter and had the top twenty five bird you know highlights and i thought maybe we could start there like some of the top twenty. Five words like for instance. I'm in the northeast cornell the northeast maybe we start there some highlights and then southeastern whatever a couple of things that were interesting to you that were in the data. Yeah yeah every year. We summarize all of the data from the past year and Right guess you would call it a newsletter called winterberg highlights dan we do what's called a regional roundup and so in that we sort of pick out some cool that show up in the data And so in the northeast region past year. One of the things that i noticed as i was looking through data was That northern flickers are becoming a little bit more. Abundant in the northeast. Then in the southeast so is a little bit of shift in the range of these flickers. So that's one thing that just popped up from looking at the trend graph that we have on the website. I then look at to write this report. So you know who knows exactly why that's happening could be changes in habitat changes in climate. But this is just one species and air lots to look at online and billy can make your own discoveries yeah the eastern bluebirds and so flickers made the top twenty five in the northeast for the first time i think in the thirty something years but eastern bluebirds didn't make the top twenty five but i think you're noting an uptick in them. Some areas to is that right in the southeast eastern bluebirds are continuing to increase their becoming more and more abundant in backyard. And they're warm adapted species so it makes sense that as our winters become more mild in the eastern part of the continent. These warm adapted species become more common. So it's true for eastern bluebirds. It's true for species. Like chipping sparrows. And you might notice. Also carolina wrens coming to your backyard more than they used to. Those are issues that are really on the rise in the eastern part of the continent.
"Person, woman, man, camera, TV": Trump describes cognitive test
"Trump was interviewed last night on Fox, by Dr Mark Siegel trump was not taking his chances with any old fox host. Who might hold him to say account Oh. No, this was Dr Mark Siegel who said this about trump's leadership on the corona virus early on. Are you impressed by that? The number of Americans who've got that much confidence in the trump administration absolutely do I think that the task force that the president put together, and his leadership on this has been tremendous. That assessment was offered ten days after trump said these words now the virus that we're talking about having to do a lot of people think that goes away in April with the. As the heat comes in, typically, that will go away and April see goes, applauded trump every step of the way, and was there for the right man to conduct this interview about a very vital medical subject, gripping the country's attention, which is the president's lack of dementia or should I say? The president's repeatedly stated lack of dementia? Yes, at issue is the president's terrific brain. Because the President keeps returning to that issue, we must think it's a big electoral winner for him I. Mean Imagine a president who doesn't have early onset dementia in the dream of Alexander Hamilton it. It is why he authored all those federalist papers and didn't give away his shot to one day found the country led by a man who's not insane or model, brained King George. The second wasn't saying by the way and so here we are today. Forty three presidents later led by such a good man with such a good brain that he needs us all to know how good a brain it is keeps bringing up an interview after interview last night. He did so with an actual doctor with credentials that I just cited impeccable ones meaning he loves trump, but also. To remind you a little bit more about Marciel. He thought the Corona virus was great big ball of hype here. He was on March sixth. I'll test the flu. I'll test the coronavirus virus to calm. Fears and people are GONNA start to get the idea that it's not that widespread Siegel was privy to a different test yesterday as the president detailed the difficulty. Difficulty of the cognitive test that was administered a while ago. I gave you this test version of this task. What trump called the hardest parts of this test on the show? A couple of days ago I read some actual words that are actually read by Dr to a patient who might have say Alzheimer's and those words are face. Velvet Church Daisy Green. Now. The point of it is that they're random words. Not Obscure words but words unrelated to each other. In fact, I WanNa let you know that I am so dedicated to this idea that the words beyond related that I saw the official test. The last word was red, not green and I changed it for the just version of the memory test. I changed it to green because I thought that read was to associated with red velvet cake. Thus perhaps skewing the results such as my dedication to the process and adjudication of you, the listener as non demented. That is why I. Ask you to recall those words, can you? Can you do it those words? They were faced velvet. Church, Daisy Green. The president by the way tweaked the test in the discussion that he had with Dr. Siegel like a memory question it's. Like you'll go person. Woman Man. Camera. TV. So that say. Could you repeat that? So I said Yeah. Person Woman. Man Camera TV okay. So in his case, it wasn't unrelated words. It was notably things in trump's direct line of sight. So twenty seconds after the clip I just played when trump busts out the same sequence, you go person. Warming, man. Camera TV. It's not quite as impressive as the actual test. Because recalling the words, he said we're just going down the line. There's a person as a man. There's a woman camera TV that that black I, don't know if I got him in the right order. I wouldn't have got his high marks as trump by the way all of this this impressive world-beating. Demonstration of non dementia. I think it sets trump up pretty well after the presidency. Now there is a downside which is that he won't be able to put forward a diminished capacity defense, if the Manhattan District Attorney or Sdn y brings charges. Out there and Gangster Heaven Vincent the Chin Gigante saying no, you gotta start muttering and shuffled around in a bathrobe early on can't do it at the last minute of Fun Ghoul. But should trump be stripped of his assets and forced to raise money. He will now have the option of touring the country as Donald Trump and his feats of intellect and Memory Prowess Marvel as Donald. Trump remembers five words in order as he repeats the same story about having a friend who doesn't go to Paris anymore as he can flakes, the notion that windmills kill eagles. Also causes cancer as he invents on the spot, different things that a dog can do like get fired there trump you and trump steaks, trump casino, and now the trump, traveling show of medical marvels and mental feats, in which the former president we'll prove himself to be the greatest conjurer that history chronicles the amazing trump gin at a fairground or read it channel near you.
How to Leverage Long-Tail Keywords to Supercharge Your Traffic
"Welcome to another episode of marketing. School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel today. We're GONNA talk about how to leverage long tail keywords to supercharge your traffic. So long tail keywords are keywords that are three four five word phrases, not those one or two words, not key words like credit or auto, insurance or cars. Those are all had terms. We're talking about things like cheap auto insurance. That's example of a long tail keyword, and the thing is is like what most people don't realize. Is You already rank for some key words even if you'll get a thousand visitors a month or five hundred visitors? If you actually go to Google search console. See what you're ranking or. And, you take a longer tail variations of that keyword, so even if the term, your ranking for is a forward term like California cheap insurance. You can end up going in finding variations and then rank for five six or seven word terms. Yes, they don't get search as much, but if you're already ranking for terms on, you know, Google added in longer tail variations of that term, even if it's adding additional word or two words at the end and a great way to boost your travel, your one of the biggest things we did with this I mean in the old way of doing this. Is Yes, you gotTA. Do Your keyword research you can use. Uber suggests there's a lot of different tools out there, but when you think about creating your content, one of probably the biggest pain in about is, let's say you hire other writers. They don't necessarily know how to do keyword research. They're not going to want to spend time learning how to use a new SEO tool. What if you train them up on how to do? Do It, you know Neil's got videos on youtube for free I have videos as well and how you can do it. That's an easy way to put long 'til keywords into your content because the beauty we always talk about importance of upgrading your content or maintaining your content so whatever you do that. Let's say you have a piece. That's driving a good amount of traffic. Let's say a couple of thousand visits a month you had. Had a paragraph to it maybe every other month, or so now in that paragraph, it's usually stuff it with a bunch of stuff. That's useless. You got to think about not only am I gonNa do the keyword research for keywords at a relevant to add into it, but also think about how do I continue to make the experience better how to add more value to the piece that I'm upgrading and then you're able to add. Add in these long tail keywords to existing content or even content that you're on new content that you're producing. You're naturally going to pick up more traffic from doing it. A lot of people don't think about the long tail, oftentimes, even today in two thousand and twenty people still think about. Oh, I should be ranking for basketball shoes instead of thinking about Air Jordan, basketball, shoes, or something like that, which is more long tail? Another easy strategy that you can end up. Using is a and this will I like to funny enough actually mentioned the content decay tool today in one of my blog posts, but we like doing is we look at the content that's getting traffic that has been decaying over time, and then we go to those posts. Refresh them up in refreshing boost our traffic, but at the same time we'll do keyword research, or whatever you want us and go find more longer, tha variations and shove him into the article. Shove. Literally mean just plays there. Their a flow hassled. Sound right has make sense has be I informed optimized for the user, not Google, and what will find is not only are we able to get back our traffic that we lost who were able to get back even more traffic than what we had originally before the contest started came. Because we update and make it better, we also added and other term variations of the Iraqi Raines.
Christian Thibaudeau on Adrenaline, Muscle Tone and Optimizing Training Splits
"And. Kristin. It's awesome to have you back. I know last time we were talking a lot about child. Development and Development Ages Zero to two and I know. Your child is getting older How is your child growing impacted your thoughts and ideas? With with child development, and and how they're coming along. While it just confirms what I was saying at first. Any type of blue light or screen time is the number one enemy to children development, and what I mentioned. Is that what people don't understand? Is that these stimulus like your tablet, your cellphone smartphone? BIG-SCREEN TV all those types of devices emit blue light, which is one of the strongest dopamine receptors stimulator. It's so strong in fact that even in adult it can desensitize those receptors very easily. That's why it's addictive. Because when you stop doing it, you feel like crap. You feel depressed because you don't have the dopamine stimulation, the pleasure neurotransmitter that is strong enough to compensate for that going on, and how the Prom is that a child's brain. Is Not fully developed and much more fragile, and a stimulus is just way too strong for their brain to handle. You can actually permanently. Damage, the dopamine receptor, sensitivity and adult. If he becomes desensitized, you can do it what what's called a dopamine fast like you stop basically any type of dopaminergic like a YouGov, are kind of all phones and. Stuff like that. You Stop Smoking. You don't take drugs at similar dopamine and within ten days you can. Basically you regain your sensitivity charts. It's the damage. You're going to have a child with low motivation. IS PRONE TO DEPRESSION ONTO ZION? It's something you want. Also. There's a very strong connection between the efficiency of the dopamine system and learning especially motor learning the reason is that children learn by reward system? So for example your your child is on the floor on. His belly doesn't crawl yet. E C a few on the Florida. You wants to reach, and you will find a way to reach it, and when you reach at the dopaminergic response gives him a big pleasure. Response will motivate him to try again to learn new stuff so learning especially motor learning is driven by the motivation to get that dopaminergic a response, so if you desensitize dopaminergic receptors, motor, learning and learning period will impair like Jaden. When he was like He. He's like twenty one months old now or something like that When he was eighteen, he already knew all of his alphabet, so he knew all the letters. And you could actually spell his name at eighteen months. So that's a pretty good. E- knew something like. One hundred twenty five words and normally at eighteen. When we went to the doctor, they said nobody a child should learn at least three words by the time these months old. The actually wanted one. We went to the doctor for eighteen month checkup. The wanted to do a TV show with us because the is level of a of development adjusts like crazy, but that's when the code Kuban crisis happened, so we didn't do it. Again. I'm not saying that I'm smarter or is exceptional. It's just that the the lower dopaminergic over-stimulation and the fact that both my wife and I are mostly at home, so we can actually plan. Learning experiences sped up development now that led to some issue that we might need to resolve. Is that by over stimulating? We basically became the only source of his development and is. Slightly lacking in social conflict like when he's around, other people will just basically freeze, and it will take him up two or three minutes of. Is the situation to be somewhat comfortable then again. I'm like that so that might be genetic might not be my teaching thing that's. Always, learning frankly do better things, but I think the biggest thing is still. Diminish like balloon exposure as much as possible Apparent is a coach. That's the another child best friend you not is. Is Boss. You're a coach. You should approach like a coach. You should lamb experiences so that the child can learn and try different things, so that's the main thing, and then of course what I'm doing different now is that we are at an age where he needs to become more more autonomous more doing things. Bhai himself so now we find that the EU really loves tractors, so we can actually play with his tractors in San for eight hours straight, so that allows me to do a lot more job, but more work, but that's the next step at first as a coach you you give him as many different experiences to develop his motor skills is absurd skills. Is Memories stuff like that is coordination and more and more advances in needs to be able to do is on staff. Set the activities you wants to do and create is on game, so that's pretty much
Wall Street drops on coronavirus fears
"No I know a thousand points ain't what it used to be and sure the fundamentals of this economy are mostly strong but Wall Street reached out and grabbed our attention today nonetheless. Not at all pleased with the code. Nineteen News maybe. What's most called for right now? Though is a little bit of context. So here goes. Andrew is felt is a professor of finance at the Anderson School at Ucla. Professor. Thanks coming on. Thanks for having me so you saw things happening this morning as we all did and you thought what I thought. Oh No okay yes. There's that but did you also think what took them so long because it's not like the corona virus hasn't been bad news coming for awhile. That's right I did think a little bit. You know why why now. I think it has to do with the fact that we saw this. You know pretty major outbreak in Italy and actually cancelled their biennial festival seeing that kind of contagion to Europe which I think we actually should have expected but it does seem to freak people out of it. Can You contextualized this for me? Just in terms of the global environment were coming off a trade war. Well the trade war still going on. We've had a phase one deal right. There is slowing in the global economy. And now this discuss yes. I think given everything that we've seen. I think I think investors really want to see good news and I think they were seeing everything with some rose colored glasses but we have had some bad news we have had the trade wars we have had this corona virus as another disruption to trade and also just potentially troubling for China which is such an important economy these days in the global Global space of things. So I think people are finally waking up to the world is not as rosy as we would we would maybe like it to be with the all important caveat that one ought not check ones 401k on days like this I if I'm In you know a tumble Iowa. What do I do with this news today? Keep watching what's happening but don't rebalance your portfolio absolutely not We WANNA B- long-term buy and hold investors not reacting especially not selling bad news rights being of long-term buy and hold. Can we spend thirty seconds on the bond market please? It is now incredibly cheap for the Federal Government to borrow money the ten year which we talk about on this program. All the time is like four year lows when you look the bond market stocks. What do you think I see a flight to quality there? I CNN. Inverted yield curve. Which I think the Fed will be paying very close attention to I think we have a very nimble and very well working Federal Reserve. Well I was I was just GONNA ask a little game. I like to plan this program. Sometimes what is Jay Powell thinking in five words or less I'm watching the inverted yield curve? That was six but I'll take it. I'll take it. That's Andrea highs failed. She's a professor of finance at the Anderson School at Ucla. Professor thanks a lot. I appreciate. You thought it was fun to be here I just add a quick explainer. Professor Fels contextual wisdom. There that thing she said about the inverted yield curve usually in the bond market the interest rates that is the yield on longer term bonds are higher than on shorter term bonds sign of economic confidence. What we've got now though is shorter term treasuries the three-month bills specifically paying a higher yield. Again that's interest then the ten year bond which is to say it's a sign of maybe not so much confidence so that's the thing that she thinks pal is looking at which is probably true
Jeff Bezos Pledges $10 Billion To Fight Climate Change, Planet's 'Biggest Threat'
"Jeff bezos. The world's richest man announced this week he is donating ten billion dollars of his personal fortune to fight climate change known as the basis Earth Fund which pays us announced over instagram. Yesterday it is thought to be one of the largest philanthropic gifts ever for more. Let's bring in Mike Regan senior editor at Bloomberg News. Mike Germany so bays us in the past has been criticized for not doing that much in the way of philanthropy in fact we just talked to the CEO of AIRBNB. Another billionaire and I asked him whether he thinks Beza should be giving more money to charity and apparently now he is. He's pledging eight percent of his personal wealth to fight climate change. Why this new commitment? Well all we really know about his motivation. So far is just a caption on instagram. Picture of the Earth. And it's only about one hundred and twenty five words but what he says basically is in part that climate change is the biggest threat to our planet and he says he wants to work alongside others to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting it. Now with that said I would point out that basis has come under a lot of pressure even especially from employees within Amazon itself Since when you think about it delivering all those Amazon packages obviously has a big impact on the environment. So he's heard a lot about this over the years. Well Yeah. Let's talk about that. Amazon's impact on climate Not just the carbon cost of shipping everything around and flying everything around but also all those packages all those boxes you know. Sometimes they can be recycled and sometimes they can write and even now on twitter and social media.
#362: Answering the Call of Holy Work with Luke LeFevre
"Conversation is with our chief creative officer at Lukla fever. He's a part of our operating board and leads a team of over one hundred and fifty people and over the past several years. He's walked through a process personally. That has helped him uncover principles which make up the creative center of great work worked at a set apart. Work that is meaningful work that is holy. The first five words of this ancient book called Genesis which was written a long time ago. Twenty Five Hundred Years before Christ was even around like that was when it was collected based off of these stories that were orally transmitted for thousands of years before that in the first five words of this ancient book are in the beginning God created. And then you know creatives yeah. Great critics love that but then it gets to humans and it says hey. Let's make them in our image. The only thing we know about our which God says let us make them in our image our image. The only thing we know about his image is that he was a creator That's the only piece of evidence you have up to that point in this old ancient book and so that's the beginning and then later as this creation happens in man pushes against it rebels. God's plan to be with people is distorted he then starts the slow process of polling people back to him and eventually he finds this character. And I'M GONNA mess up how to say his name so listeners. Please help me. I think it's bell ultimately I always say Brazil and I think I messed it up but eventually yeah. It's a little or something like that. The law in Exodus thirty one. It says I filled him with the divine spirit to create many things. Like I could look it up here. God filled with the spirit of God in wisdom and understanding and knowledge and all manner of workmanship design artistic works to work gold and silver and bronze and cutting jewels for setting in carving wood into work in all manner of workmanship. Okay great thanks for the Bible lesson again but really this guy. Bazil was creating a place for God to dwell with us on the Earth again That was his assignment. It was his assignment and if This commentary in the Bible. I was reading. It says the first person the Bible mentions as being filled with the spirit. Was this guy and I read that a couple years ago and I was like what. How do I know that as a person who's been working for a long time I think work? Why is work inherently creative because we are made in as humans? We are made in God's image what we know about God's image is that he was a creator and he wants to manifest his ideas through us like he did with this zillow guy in like. That's just like really profound in. I think that work that stuff we have inside us that we want to make or perform or build or teach or organize or whatever has been in there since before we were born. And I think it's because we are made in God's image to create think so often especially today it's really easy to get wrapped up in that word creative and think that that's a musician. That's an artist. That's a painter. Maybe that's a graphic designer may be threatening if they're good or not but it sounds like you're broadening the scope of what is creative. Were hundred percent when I was five years old. I went to my aunt's house in the summer and we had a week long. We stayed with her and I had to to her church and those at our church and there was a drawing contest and a church at Church it was like drawn. Noah's Ark so I drew Noah's Ark and I'm like I don't know you just draw. Draw the arts or a couple of animals on their turn it in well. There's no big deal to me. I saw it in my head at drew. The picture turned in while the teacher was like putting them up on the board in. I'm like Oh month month. Pretty good you know. I just remember thinking that and then the next kids look like a banana in the next kids. Look like you know something else and I was just sitting there thinking like holy cow. I just might win this thing. I just drew the Ark and did I ended up winning and it wasn't like Oh good. Someone's recognized my talent. It was I don't know I just saw the arc so I drew the Arkansas. The other kids didn't do that now. I was talking to another friend of mine and he was like I remember being pretty young and sitting in a pizza hut and I saw that the pizza cost ten ninety nine and I asked my dad how much the pizza cost and he goes. Oh a dollar ninety nine. In this friend he goes business he understood. It costs two dollars to make it and they charge ten. So that's how you make money. How old who's like seven okay. So as a seven year old he was understanding the concept of profit margins xactly. I never had those thoughts. I just figuring booth. Yes so the thing in me was to draw like I could just see things. I could connect dots. It could do that stuff. His was this business thing. I have other examples like my brother-in-law Brent huge entree fan has been through a lot of our stuff. He's always since as long as I can remember. Been the guy who ran the sound. Did the video had the CD's when he was a kit like he recorded all the movies. You know when you record movies on VHS. Three movies on one six hour he was. Just he's always just been drawn to this video technology side of things and I think it's because that is God's gift to each of us and they're all different but it's all made in his image which is to create because I think that thing were drawn to whether it's business organization drawing speaking whatever it is that is the creation God wants to create with you. Yeah that's amazing so I mean it's almost like what you're talking about is like as kids. We are creative. Yes we collective wheat. Everyone that's listening. This everyone the planet we are creative and then the thing that pulls us away from that has all these layers that we put on top of ourselves. But what you're saying. Is that our core? There is something creative inside of us under percent. I don't know what it is for each person. It's different but my wife we home school. We've got four kids. She when she was little she remembers setting up all her dolls in the basement and she was in front of these dolls and she was teaching on a whiteboard and she was probably five years old and now she loves it. And there's the slow poll towards that thing that has been in use since before you were born. I think in. There's there's relationships the squash it. There's parents that squash it or encourage it. There's just lots of reasons why you believe it or don't believe it but I think there is a pole towards something that has been in there since before you were born in. That is the creative so it almost seems like the way we can properly maximize our role in the president is to recognize that there is a piece of us that is creative that is demanded to be effective here. I think so. I don't know if it's demanded I think you can deny it. I think you can let fear or ignoring it. Or who am I to do that? Cover it up or years of pushing it away or things like that that can cause you not to use it. There are people. I know who haven't followed this thing and they're lazy or they don't do something with it and so maybe a little bit sad. It's sad it is sad if you don't use the thing it's really sad because you're not doing the gift I think. I think I believe that God wants to make this stuff with us. And he's like hoping we do you know giving us opportunities to do it. So is owning a small business inherently creative work. One hundred percent depends on how you got into it but I think there is a pole towards this thing The people I talked to. I did an entree mentoring session at the last ems. And I was talking to this guy. I'm blanking on his name but he ran an ambulance company an Independent Ambulance Company and it was like so. Why did you start it? And he was like. Oh we'll just something to do and I'm like no come on a wage cheaper in ways to just find some you and he goes. Well I worked at one of these places and they. It was just not a great experience. I just wanted to do something different. And I'm like okay. But what about the ambulance thing that? Why are you drawn to that? It's not just well. I didn't like the way that they did it. He was like I just love helping people. I just love helping people and he gets to do it like people in their most hardest time of need. And that's the real root I bet you. He's always been a sweet kid who was a helper when he was a kid. And that's the poll. And if you are oftentimes I think and data I don't have you know spreadsheets and stuff if you aren't working in that thing that you've been drawn to that's wearing Zaidi comes that sort of thing comes. That's where that sadness comes at. You were just talking about like if you can't express somehow that thing that's where you get stuck in alcoholism or a addictions and things like that I think. Because you're you're trying to squash or quiet this feeling that's been inside of you and Escape Reality Game. That's a great word for you
Ubers path to profitability
"We have of course been following the corona virus story. It's human toll is growing. We're also going to have a personal story about one. US business struggling to deal with its impacts a little later in the program but to start off the Federal Reserve Board said today that the virus now poses a quote new risk to US markets and global growth. Here to talk about all of that plus the other economic news of the week are two weekly rappers. Honest Watson is with the New York Times so deep ready is at politico and they both join us from our DC bureau today. Hey to hey molly all right I. Let's start with this corona virus news and I'm going to channel Cairo's doll because I know that he has been asking each week. During the weekly wrap is this virus potentially the Black Swan event that triggers the next recession so far. It's mostly been no so deep I'll start with you is that changing. It could be a-changing we talk about black swans as if we We obviously were not expecting this but now we also have a black hole of information. We don't know what is going on in in China right now. That is the the core of the fear. That's going through Economists and traders and everyone else around the world who has has to deal with this is information flow out of China. Being closed communist society is very difficult. And there's a lack of trust with the global community and when you have a lack lack of trust you have fear. So that's what we're going through right now and we don't know whether this is going to be a few weeks or a few months or few years and when you have that kind kind of uncertainty you have a big problem on your hands when you're trying to figure out what's going to happen in the next few weeks or months or years right now. Of course we also had conversations with China this week about implementing part of the phase one deal to cut tariffs on a how Oh do these ongoing trade conversations affect this growth picture and then where does the virus plan with all of that so it does seem likely that the spread of the virus is going to delay the implementation of the US China trade deal especially the big purchasing component that the country agreed to two two hundred billion dollars of additional purchases over the next couple of years It definitely looks like that is going to be pushed down the line and some of those other promises are going to be called into question In terms of the growth prospects from that You know signing that. Trade deal really resolved one of the Big sources of uncertainty for the global economy last year. And now it's just been replaced with another one basically so China counts for a third of global growth So spillovers there a a slow down. There absolutely has the potential to spill over to the US And today you did see the Federal Reserve Board warning about this Virus creating less appetite for risk a US our appreciation less trade and lower commodity prices so affecting the US economy in a variety of ways. Help me on. I WanNa stay with you for a little bit. But of course champion city helped me level set on trade for a second. Because if I feel I think we L. Fill little lost in which parts of trade conversations. We should be focused on this conflict brewing potentially with Europe where you wrote on about our starting trade talks with Kenya to stave off China in There's still uncertainty about trade with China. What should we be focused on here? Yeah so the president has declared victory for now with a China South Korea. Japan Canada Mexico. you know. Some of those conflicts could rise up again at any moment particularly China But suffice to say the administration is Pretty Happy with the deals that they signed with those countries but they aren't aren't Stopping their their immediately turning to these other fronts most notably picking. What could be a really great big trade fight with the European Union They're also working on a very small deal With India but with one which still could be the biggest trade deal that we've ever signed with India Potentially coming up in the next few weeks there are discussions underway with the the UK But that's really not likely to be finalized noise until we see more about the terms under which the UK and the European Union will be trading and then as you mentioned the US announced this week that I we're going to be launching. Trade talks with Kenya and so they see that as a template for agreements with other African countries. And it's also an explicit effort to counter China's investments in Africa in the trump administration says that Africa has been Investing very heavily there and they see these trade agreements as kind of geopolitical Jio political toehold on the continent again And then city just like a couple of seconds left but give me your five word breakdown of the jobs report today. Quite strong except manufacturing. What do we make big picture? Quite strong except manufacturing. It means that we're we're We're in the roaring twenties. We're we're doing Surprisingly well this late into an economic expansion in the The almost at the eleven year mark for the Economic Expansion but the fact that factories have Have not been growing as faster gains. We got in the report in Twenty nineteen where the second smallest gain since twenty ten when we came out of the recession so it shows that that all of these concerns about trade about the state of the global economy about what's happening overseas that does have an impact in an industry that people still care a lot about in the United States and if the factory sector falls and other things could fall afterward all right thanks so much you
Lemonade with Abigoliah Schamaun and guest Nell Gifford
"I am a feminist but today Yoga I overheard a woman in the shoe area saying will men men like to claim this way but women to scrub. That's the difference between men and women how they clean and I wanted to say. Excuse me I don't want to be rude. But these binary ways that we talk about men and women do invite a certain culture that says that somehow Manohla always like this and women are like this best you kind of know to cleaning trend. You kind of noted agenda trend. Don't undermine that but saying men do and women do that. It's actually not that helpful but what I wanted to say. Even more was how common link to clean because I missed that pond. I heard that women's scrubbing wing section. How to clean because as far as I can make out not at all but what I did say was nothing talk? Get involved in this lady's life I don't know she doesn't need be tapping around the shoulder and telling her about does not but it's annoying. That would have been really fun though. So if you just gone up and being excuse me I don't think you should prescribed a cleaning gender binary now must stay and then just like and then like the little bells you know the the meditation Gong goes off and then you just evaporate. That bowl sounds off bowl. That could've been my interruption. Maybe it could have Donald Binary that yeah. I must not do that because I feel. It's going to be steeply culturally insensitive. I don't think we should throw that right. I'm a feminist but the last time I I was on the guilty feminist podcast I tweeted about it. I put it on instagram. I shared it on facebook and my mother called me and said congratulations nations. I've listened to the PODCAST. It's very good. You're very funny. Deborah's a lovely person. I just need you to know that you spelled feminists wrong in every single one of your posts. Oh every single. Oh No I cry ball. TURNS ZACK turns out. YOU DON'T SPELL FEMINISTS DEMAND S. I think you put a man into feminist. Yeah stop it right now. It's very on brand for me. I can't spell it the best time I remember in the second grade we were allowed to pick five words to be on our own spelling tests. That were special to us that we needed to learn how to spell so I had to put my name on spelling second grade. I was like nine and I still was like no the nine in the second grade. I think so are nine and six. Are you six. I think I'm nine and everything when in doubt I'm always like when I was nine number you would not nine. I'm a feminist but if I had to give up feminism or yoga for one week it'd depend where my head was Some weeks I really need yoga. I get it. I'm the same way I mean it's only a week. I wouldn't actively anti-feminist but if I had to rest all NAMA state I get it. I am a feminist but whenever I wear a crop top onstage to show my stomach and a fellow curvy woman comes up to me after the show and touches me lightly on the Elbow Elbow and goes I love your body positively. I WANNA puncher. That is the exact same thing as a guy coming up to me. Going your your tits. Look good in that top. It is not to be discussed. It is only to be enjoyed in silence. Yeah I agree because on the live tour I had this this big green sequent Cape and one night. I happened to be walking posted on summers and they had the same green sequence in full please swimsuit saw so. I thought pretty funny if I had that on them with trousers over the tall swimsuit was like a body suit type thing green sequence and I thought it was funny and kind of cabaret but look good and then afterwards one of the other acts message me and said I just want to say that my friend was in the audience tonight and you really inspired her to buy a swimsuit because she didn't WanNa buy some soup for holidays and you're such an inspiration to she. Thought if Debra can do it also the swimsuit so let me a fucking swimsuit inspiration. Yeah I want people look at me and think I can't do that. Why was it no look at the swimsuit go? I would never be able to pull it off. Don't find inspiration in my no. I wanted to have it. What does that mean? Yeah I've been able to let it go. I've not been able to let it go. I'm feminist bus. I saw a cat dressed two two two so that it looks like it had arms coming out of it cites it was like a front only situation like a babe but it looks at the front like the cat is wearing wearing a pink Tutu with point shoes and my first thought was. Where can I get one of those for toast? It's not a feminist outfit. Not Not that balance isn't feminist but to address your cat in. I guess well we have to question the agency of the cat at this point. Yeah does does the CAT WANNA be in sequence toast would no. I'm a feminist but I think top gear in the grand tour. Where are the best television? I've ever seen I genuinely think Jeremy Clarkson and may make the best. Tell you Joe Kendo thank you thank you. I thought I would be a really alone in that like so much okay. I'm a feminist. But if someone was like would you you like to sit down and Rewatch fleabag or the grand tour. GRANDPA I love it. Yeah Yeah Oh no no no no no no no no. I'm not saying it's hotter. I'm not better. I'm not saying it's better than flashback. Because they are completely different things but I am saying as far as entertainment easily consumable television grant towards like Doritos. Just can't get enough from the customer spontaneity shop. That's the best. It Guest Co host Avocados special guest. This is the guilty feminist. The podcast in which we explore on noble goals was twenty-first-century feminists hypocrisies and insecurities which undermine them. I'm I'm Deborah Francis. Mike with me is Gosh. Amman on we're talking about lemonade lemonade. When life she lemons make lemonade? Yup the beyond say album of the same name and I think think that applies to women a lot applies to feminists allot. I was thinking about brexit being such a thing if life she lemons we might have to make celebrity and then I thought who am I. Kidding is if we're going to have access to fresh citrus. We're not GONNA have any. I read something today where they Sainsbury said that. There's going to be like like gaps on the shelves. They're just not gonna be able to get stuff in the brexit well. I was just thinking when it comes to Brexit when life gives you limit your like yeah we have lemons. Yes turned turn. It can't wait when life gives you lemons at least you won't have scurvy is very much the brexit no deal slogan hope. Boris puts it on a bus US going to campaign to say. Hey We got through the blitz. That's basically what is going to be. But I always think because people do say we got through the blitz bursting but we didn't vote for the blitz and if we had accidentally voted for the blades we would have had a second referendum and said. Aw please so I'm saying blitz. I think that should be the new BREXIT HASHTAG DOC is Hashtag nope blitz absolutely so my story in terms of Lemons and lemonade. I think my whole career is actually lemonade. That I've made the lemon of
Fed Chair Powell Signals Rate Cut as Economic Risks Loom
"Two data points from the U._S.. Central Bank today both sending strong and consistent messages about monetary policy. I we got the minutes from the Federal Reserve's meeting back in June and the second chair Jerome Powell himself testified this morning before the House Financial Services Committee. He does this twice a year. He'll speak to the Senate tomorrow. Gina smiling from the New York Times is with us in studio to talk about what we're hearing from the Fed. Thanks for joining us. Yeah absolutely thanks for having me so for those of us who aren't avid fed watchers. Were the highlights today in Chair Pals testimony the big headline that people are going to take away from this is that the Fed seems to be setting up for a July rate cut which is a big deal because they haven't cut rates since the depths of the financial crisis so it's been about a decade and so that's the big one the other one. I think that's important is the Fed is really highlighting that they're worried about. Slow price increases right now just because that increases the risk that they don't hit their inflation goal increasing the risk of deflation in the next crisis. Did you see any difference between what chair Powell was saying on the hill today versus what kind of came out in the minutes no. I think the big takeaway is actually they were very much in agreement. So in the minutes Fed officials basically told us that they are watching Ching a bunch of uncertainties from the trade war took slowing global growth and as they watch those there thinking that it might be appropriate to cut rates in the near term and then chair POW went up on the hill and basically said those uncertainties they are still here. They are still with with us. Is there looming they haven't dissipated and I think a lot of folks are saying that means July ago so let's talk about expectations for a minute. The markets are already pricing in that rate cut that you're talking about. President trump is effectively demanding in one how much wiggle room does Powell really have here in deciding on a rate cut. Yes so I think probably less after today simply because market pricing is pretty cemented at this point you know they really chose not out to walk back those expectations during both these minutes which are edited after the fact and and sort of you know in anticipation of markets reading and also in <hes> Cheer Powell's remarks if he had wanted to to pull that back he would have done it and he did on Powell also made clear in his testimony today that he wants to do whatever he can to keep this record economic expansion going and one of the reasons he mentioned is because that expansion still has not reached everyone a lot of folks aren't fuelling this quote unquote good economy and the big point there is wage growth. It just hasn't taken off the way you would expect if companies were really fighting with each other for workers and so I think what the Fed is looking at. Is You know. Can we continue running this pretty tight labor market with very low on employment without stoking higher wages and the answer that they're coming up with as ask themselves that question is probably yes and probably that's going to help lift people who haven't really benefited from this very strong economy so just. Just very quickly for our own economic intelligence. What does a rate cut do for that situation right so what it does is just sustain the economic expansion longer so that people can keep hiring companies can keep hiring and everyday workers who might have been on the sidelines can jump into jobs which gets to what our colleagues Bene- sure is going to get to in a second on labor force participation? Gina Smile is from the New York Times. Thank you so much.
Is organic facebook marketing dead?
"Day we're going to review social media marketing is Facebook organic marketing dead if he goes episode three hundred and forty seven well, if you didn't know your Facebook reach for your personal page, even worse business page is only one to six percent of the people that volley. So that's crazy low. Of course, they want you to make money when we're evaluating what the post, especially if you're talking about business stuff, and I'm guilty that link posts are the worst. So pretty much what I've been posted forever. A summary of the podcast, a link to it with a picture kind of one of the worst reaches that you're gonna get videos, of course, are the best. And while I do personally have a third of my shows I've got, like a one minute, teaser video got different videos, within a video and has got like different pieces. Pretty much the same stuff that would right? It's an video format. So while now Facebook loves it. But then there's a caveat. I'll tell you about in the second. Sometimes in the second best is questioned. So just text asking engaging question. If you don't get at least. Five words on on the comment. It doesn't really count just saying. Yup. Number five love it. None of that really counts, it needs to be at these five words, it means we're actually engaging in your post. So keep that in mind videos, get seventy three percent, more reach than just a photo, by the way, if you're doing YouTube videos, pretty much is, that's a direct competitor Facebook. They just gonna shut it down. You're not gonna get any reach practically. So you got a video that you did yourself uploaded that wreck the Facebook. I know you got to upload with the YouTube directly, you got up to lower the Facebook correctly. It's a pain to our stuff that sites it where you can do it for you. So I don't know what to tell you on that one in the same boat as you guys like. What they said is a really good way to pose videos, especially if you gonna put some money to it just put a little bit about. You pull just pull even a little bit of money a fifteen seconds square video. So I got a double check my phone square video on long do square pictures, all day long, but square videos, and other story guessing you can probably see run it through a simple program. These days on your phone or something, and they can make it square for you. Okay. But a fifteen seconds square video that keeps you under the limit so that you can advertise a lot more places like Instagram and all these other places you might just have the title of say your podcast, and then one or two points, and on those post, I would still put a link in the body, some as you put in the comments, but this lady, who's an expert said, put it in just putting the body just put a little bit of budget to it, and that way, even if the ad expires that link still counts muss, what is it seventy percent? Don't listen to the sound. So make sure these videos or either sound off to begin with all this captions. If there's words, a long form video in a we used to do a lot longer videos. Now, three to five minutes is perfect and even. Facebook live. The optimum time is only three or four minutes. The only reason you'd want to do a twenty to thirty minute episode is if you do it like every week, same day, same time, kind of like a TV show because we're used to spin in twenty to thirty minutes to watch sitcom so pretty much a quick ad fifteen seconds. You wanna get a little bit longer a minute, but reality, most of your videos, need to stay between that three four minute
Matt talks to Marc Okrand about cursing in Klingon
"Hi, this is Matt fiddler, and you're listening to very bad words. The podcast about swearing and taboo language. We've covered swearing in foreign languages before on two different episodes in two thousand seventeen. And on this many cast, we're going to cover some more foreign curse words. But these particular swear words have no definitions because these are words from the Star Trek universe Markle Crandon I devised the Klingon language. Her didn't Star Trek movies and TV shows. In fact, he created all the alien languages heard on Star Trek Romulo in Vulcan and a few others what I was I asked to make up Klingon it was for Star Trek, three. And the idea was to make up Klingon lines that meant these twenty maybe at the most lines in the script, and we decided to make it sound real. It should be real. So he made it be realized with grammar and consistent cavalier and all these things. But the goal was never to make more than what was needed for the script. And the next time I had anything to do with with with the language was when I wrote this book, which may or may not have been a good idea called the Klingon dictionary. And there is nice say that is because it caused all kinds of things to happen with the language wants. This book came out. And in writing the book, I said, okay, if I include only what was in the movie and vocabulary items that were in the original TV show, maybe it would have been a really skinny book. There wasn't that much to flesh out the vocabulary and grammar, but mainly vocabulary. And in doing that, I thought of all kinds of things to add a lot, a lot of words. And then it got to the part about profanity because if you're a Star Trek fan, even a casual one like myself, you know that the klingons must say, vile dirty things just fits with their character it when people are learning new languages, what are the first things they want to learn after learning? The book is on the table. They wanna swear. They want to learn how to curse because that's how real people talk. I mean, how awesome would it be? Swear it someone at a Star Trek convention or Comecon in Klingon. But Mark would have to create profanity from scratch for this Klingon dictionary. He was creating. Because there was none in the movie Star Trek, three and none in the original TV shows. Is that right? What am I going to do here gave us some fun. I said, well, I wanna make sure they published this book. So I made up maybe five words, six. I said, these are the dirty words, and here the meanings of each of these words. And the meetings were comic book means meaning asterisk exclamation point at sign, stuff like that. So none of them was defined. But when the audiobook conversational Klingon was to be published, Mark wanted a little intro to the book that included a lesson on swearing in the original first draft, some kind of introduction, whatever it wasn't as okay. Now let's begin with what everyone who learns a foreign language. What's to know I, which is the dirty words and the company putting this thing out to Simon and Schuster said, no. No, we can't. We can't have dirty words. You know, we can't do that. So I thought about it. I said, all right, we'll do something else will be more traditional. Let's start with the sounds, but Simon and Schuster did let Mark put some Klingon curses in the final version. So they snuck in snuck in there. But once again, they were not defined. I'd say things like this word you my utter, if you're really angry and let it go, that none of them has never been defined. Next week, we'll hear a lot more for Mark about Leon Star Trek in white klingons do actually curse a lot in the Star Trek universe. We'll also hear from David Peterson who has linguists that creates other fictional languages in the curse. Go with them including the rocky language from game of thrones. We're gonna find out about all sorts of these curses in fictional languages and how fantasy inside often make new English curse words to express the taboos in their fictional worlds. Nice to see the truth that route. Route and guidance through this whole story. We'll be my former radio co worker force Phillips and his scifi fantasy partner Emily. So tune in next week? Very bad words.
