"steward" Discussed on Pray the Word with David Platt
"Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Micah, chapter three versus one and two. And I said, here you heads of Jacob and rulers of the house of Israel. Is it not for you to know justice? You who hate the good and love the evil who tear the skin from off my people and their flesh from off their bones? What an indictment of the heads of Jacob and the rulers of the house of Israel, God is saying to these leaders I have put you in charge of caring for my people and you've done the exact opposite. You tear the skin from off my people. Tear the flesh from off their bones. What imagery of leaders who have lead in such a way that they don't benefit the people they are leading instead they only benefit themselves and they have led to destruction among those who they are leading. I read this and I just immediately think about the people gods and trusted me to lead and to care for as a husband to think about my wife as a dad to think about my kids as a pastor to think about people in the church that I shepherd. I just want to encourage you to think about people that you have a responsibility for leading and caring for in some way. Maybe in an official title you have of leadership or maybe it's unofficial. It's just a picture of influence you have and others lives and let's pray God help us to use to steward the influence any leadership we have in others lives for their good. God we pray for the good of people we lead in any of the different ways we might lead them. How do we pray for the good of those we oversee in some way and God for the good of anyone we have the opportunity to influence today this week or next week, God we pray to you to help us to steward our leadership and influence for others good that you help us to love the good and hate evil. Gotta be pray that the fruit of our leadership and influence would be others experiencing your goodness and your grace, your mercy and your kindness. We pray that people would flourish under our leadership would flourish as a result of our influence and even as we pray for this stewardship we think about the opportunities we have with the gospel to spread it around the world. The opportunities we have to influence nations for your glory God we pray today for the Turkmen people of Turkmenistan almost 5 million of them and so few of them followers of Jesus most of them having no knowledge of the gospel God, please help us to steward your grace in our lives for the spread of the gospel to Turkmen people. And other unreached people like them and God reprised specifically for this people group today that they would hear the good news of your grace and your love in Jesus. You would cause the gospel to spread among them God that they might know justice that they might enjoy your goodness. All of this God we pray, according to your word and Micah, chapter three versus one and two, and Jesus name, amen..
"steward" Discussed on Discerning Hearts - Catholic Podcasts
"Said to his disciples, there was a rich man, and he had a steward, denounced to him for being wasteful with his property. He called for the man and said, what is this? I hear about you. Draw me up an account of your stewardship because you are not to be my steward any longer. Then the steward said to himself, now that my master is taking the stewardship from me, what am I to do? Dig? I'm not strong enough. Go begging? I should be too ashamed. Ah, I know what I will do to make sure that when I am dismissed from office, there will be some to welcome me into their homes. Then he called his master's debtors, one by one. To the first, he said, how much do you owe my master? 100 measures of oil was the reply. The steward said, here, take your Bond. Sit down straight away and write 50. To another, he said, and you, sir, how much do you owe? 100 measures of wheat was the reply. The steward said here, take your bond and write 80. The master praised the dishonest steward for his astuteness. For the children of this world are more astute at dealing with their own kind than are the children of light. What word made this passage come alive for you?
John Zmirak: 'Each of Us Has an Inner Coward'
"Are people happy to say that it's like they may as well, to cut to the chase. It's like they hear the Jews going to the death camps and they go, you know what? I just can't be bothered anymore enough. Let me just focus on my I'm going to have my quiet time here while the Jews and their children go in the boxcars to the death camps. Now, that might sound like hyperbole. Here's the problem. It's not. That's the problem. It's not hyperbole. So in my book, I'm trying to wake people up, but your letter is trying to give vent to the cowardly. Oh, it's so painful, John. Timing into the. I'm exploding each of us has an inner coward. Who just wants to enjoy his suit. Not too hot, not too cold because then we would spin it out of our mouth. We wasn't nice, lukewarm soup. We want quiet relaxing music. If there are, if there are trains bringing people to prison camps, we want to sing a little louder to drown it out. Wait, yeah, we want to Dodge a bullet. Better him than me. If we're in a herd of animals being chased by a lion, we don't want to be the guy who turns around and tries to gore the lion with our little horns. Just run. Because that'll give you an opportunity not to fight, but to run another time. And if you flee today, gives you a chance to flee tomorrow. And the one who gets eaten last wins, when we're just going to preach the wait, wait, Eric, we are being smart. We're not like those troublemakers who are going to be arrested by the government. They're going to have their homes rated. We are being prudent. So we can keep preaching the gospel. Of course, what are the gospel consist of? It consists of not making trouble with Caesar and cooperating with Herod and pilots and being the unjust steward and burying you talents in the yard. This is the message of Christians who are unwilling to push back against our wicked and illegitimate regime. Well,

Spending God's Money to Help Your Community
"A mission from God, folks. Remember The Blues Brothers. We're on a mission from God. This is a mission from God. He wants us to be stewards of the money he allows us to have for his purposes and that just doesn't mean ties and offerings. It means when you spend your money, where are you spending it? Are you spending it responsibly spending it with people that are doing things like Walmart just the other day? They used to be a pro American company, even though a 140% of their stuff is made in China. But they just the other day said, hey, you know, we will help you to kill your unborn child. We're going to vote against the idea that children in the womb are sacred. And we're going to make an extra effort to take the profits we make from people who buy in our stores to help women do the wrong thing that's going to hurt them. And it's an unbelievable thing. So if you have to shop in a place like Walmart, well, I think you can go there. But it's a challenge for us to find places usually Rebecca local places. My wife is big on this. Support a local mom and pop shop. It might cost you more money. But folks, it's God's money. It's God's money. That's right. And when you support these local places where the especially when people share your values, it really does affect everything. It's not just a one time purchase. It affects your community. It affects what comes into your community.

"Happy those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes. I tell you solemnly, he will put on an apron, sit them down a table and wait on them. It may be in the second watch he comes, or in the third, but happy those servants, if he finds them ready. You may be quite sure of this. That if the householder had known what hour the burglar would come, he would not have let anyone break through the wall of his house. You too must stand ready. Because the son of man is coming at an hour, you do not expect. Peter said lord, do you mean this parable for us, or for everyone? The lord replied, what sort of steward then is faithful and wise enough for the master to place him over his household, to give them their allowance of food at the proper time. Happy the servant of his master's arrival finds him at his employment. I tell you truly, he will place him over everything he owns. But as for the servant who says to himself, my master is taking his time coming and sets about beating the man servants in the maids, and eating and drinking and getting drunk. His master will come on a day he does not expect, and in an hour he does not know. The master will cut him off and send him to the same fate as the unfaithful. The servant who knows what his master wants, but is not even started to carry out those wishes, will receive very many strokes of the lash. The one who did not know, but deserves to be beaten for what he has done will receive fewer strokes. When a man has had a great deal given him, a great deal will be demanded of him. When a man has had a great deal given to him on trust, even

Would Eric Consider Writing a Book About Responsible Environmentalism?
"Will you consider writing a book about responsible environmentalism? I feel so many people definitely myself are searching for a reliable truthful and balanced understanding of how we might best be responsible stewards of this amazing planet. While not getting caught up in political fanaticism of global warming. So the question is, will you consider writing a book about responsible environmentalism? And I'll have to say, not in your life. How's that for an answer? No, I mean, I think it's not a subject that particularly fascinates me. And it has become so politicized. I can't even I can't even talk about it. It's preposterous. Everybody knows. Everybody knows that you want to be responsible and do things right and but it has, of course, become so politicized that I wouldn't even dream of writing a book about it. But thanks for the question. And my twin brother writes about that all the time for different publications. Yes, he does.

There's a New Diversity Program at United Airlines and Not All Employees Are Fans
"I'd like to talk about United Airlines and a new policy that the airline is instituting of training as pilots. More women and more persons of color. Now, I guess in these depressing days of today you should be glad that they aren't adding all kinds of other groups. We're going to try to make sure that there are more transpile and so on. There seem to be limiting it to women and persons of color. Let me say a few things about united. Debbie and I fly on united all the time. I used to be delta medallion member and that was when I lived in California. And I mainly took Delta flights. But since I moved to Texas, I'm now a united one K member because I fly a lot. And it's really cool. Very often I'll say often that I'm on the airline and with Debbie, one of the pilots will come up to me or stewardesses or stewards will come up to me and they'll be like, wow, we really like what you have to say. And they usually say this and kind of Soto bode kind of a low voice. Why? Because they know that united is kind of woke as an airline, but there is a strong movement of conservatives in united. And apparently there's even a kind of patriotic group that has been formed inside of united and it's kind of funny. They have little signals that they can make to each other. So they know that they're all members of the group. I guess sort of like gay signaling in the old
Kevin McCullough: President Trump Wanted America to Thrive
"I would like to ask everyone listening to just kind of wipe the slate clean of everything else that's making noise right now. And just think of these two things. President Trump in a throwback almost a type of administration. And wipe his tweets away, wipe his personality away. Just look at this policies. He said, I want to make America the preeminent power. I want to make sure that America has enough sustainability that they're not dependent upon other countries. I want to make sure that we are able to defend ourselves and not be engaged in long entanglements that tie us up and keep us from being able to defend ourselves. Everything he did, he did from this perspective of how does it impact the country that I'm the steward of right now? I have to be responsible for what happens on my watch. I want it to thrive. I want it to be the best. I want it to be the safest. I want it to be the reason why people want to come here from other places, but I want them to come here, lawfully and with a certain degree of order. That's kind of on one side, and that's I think the majority of Americans. Majority of Americans look at America. And whatever you think about social policies or tax policies, other things, you at the end of the day, you want that vision to be true. You want America to be safe, you want it to be prosperous, you want it to be something that you enjoy living in experiencing. The other team, the group that's in there now. Coming to power under questionable circumstances, doing things immediately out of the gate without a consensus and then pushing that with the thinnest margins that anyone's had in legislative recent history. You know, just a 5 seat swing in the house, just a one seat swing in the Senate gives the other side the bodies back. And with those very tiny margins, they didn't worry about compromise or trying to work together or trying to come up with plans that all of Americans would benefit from. They came in with an ironclad agenda that said we are going to push this stuff as hard and as fast as we can. No matter what, and out of that process, we see that everything's being changed. Education is being changed. What they're trying to teach our kids and indoctrinate them in terms of how to think about race. Our local elections, they want to codify all these open voting practices that kind of gave them power to begin with. And that's just the start of it. Our military isn't focused on fighting and winning wars anymore. They're focused on pronouns, and who gets to sleep in what bear and why you have in terms of the economy and abject mess. And it's a mess of our own making because we instituted these policies that we didn't need to institute. And it's all too super, super serve this limited, but very vocal, a group of people that want to see a progressive America come about. That is not a vision that the average American has for America. The average American doesn't want most of that. They want this other stuff that the Trump team brought
The Origin of Christopher Steele's Lies Comes From Clinton Campaign
"Took years two more years on top of that for the Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz to expose that mister Steele had relied in a Russian source who said he never expected mister Steele to present his info as facts since most of it was hearsay Now derms indictment says that this source this guy danchenko obtained material from a longtime democratic operative who was active in the 2016 Clinton campaign In other words the Clinton campaign passed it off to this Russian guy the Russian guy passed it off to Christopher Steele and then Christopher Steele put it in the dossier and then the FBI used that information to then go after Carter page and other people within the Trump campaign And tell everybody that Trump was a Russian puppet A Russian steward you see That's the Democrats ran on And they knew it the whole time They knew what they lied They lied to everybody about this Hillary Clinton's campaign lied And there were so many people in the government that were more than willing to go along with this You know they were just happy to go along with this They didn't even stop Trump No matter
"steward" Discussed on Her CEO Journey™: The Business Finance Podcast for Mission-Driven Women Entrepreneurs
"Think where the mindset needs to change as putting capital in right relationship the goal of those ventures is to change the world through what they're offering but capital needs to understand that it's a em- put to drive that purpose but maximizing value to capitals is not the end goal. It's a means to the end. But not the end in itself so capital needs to be put in those businesses and right relationships where it doesn't steer the whole business and steer the whole ship the purpose. Here's the business and the entrepreneurs theor the business when you filled the right structure and invest the time. You can really integrate purpose. In every decision consistently you can secure growth capital while ensuring your mission would never be compromised by the needs of external stakeholders. It is about shifting business practices from value extraction and short term gain towards stewardships independence and longer purpose by disrupting the relationship between power money and the purpose of the business. That's the reason why we curate it. This alternate the ownership podcast series. We want to encourage you as a mission driven founder to explore the alternative ownership model and thinking outside the traditional exit strategy. So you can protect your mission over the long term.

It is not a new concept but steward ownership is more popular in europe than north america however as more and more founders realize that we need to exercise conscious capitalism versus traditional capitalism the movement of steward ownership is on the rise in north america last week episode episode. One hundred and thirty eight was the first episode of alternative ownership podcast series and we talk..
"steward" Discussed on How to Be a Better Human
"All states and situations. And we are back. Okay, so today we are talking about connecting with Planet Earth and trying to make better choices when it comes to protecting this one and only home that we have. When I think back on all of the interviews that we've done on the show that touch on these themes, one of the ones that sticks with me the most is with chef Sean Sherman. Sean is a chef, he's a cookbook author and he's the founder of indigenous food education business the sous chef. I've always like to cook personally, but since I talked with Sean, I found myself thinking a lot more deeply about ingredients. Not just whether they taste good or whether they're organic or local, but really about their histories. Who brought them? Who planted them? How are they reflective or not reflective of the history of the place that I'm living it? Sean is one of those people that is such a deep thinker. He's such a deep thinker and he's obviously a fantastic chef. And here's what he had to say about why he thinks food can be the perfect way to start thinking about these issues. So I just feel really hopeful that a lot of positive changes are going to come around where people can truly understand why it's important to protect our environment to preserve a lot of this natural resource that's around us to understand how we can just connect with the nature around us better to utilize it to protect that nature, but also, you know, have it being able to supply us with a lot of really healthy nutritious foods and just opening up our worlds a little bit more, you know? So you know like we're not disat from the environment. It's a part of our it's part of where we are. And we have to understand that moving forward, we can't just bowl over everything. And this colonial mindset of being able to just rip up and tear out what you need and just leave destruction behind you. Obviously does not work, you know, because we have to be thinking about the future. We have to be thinking about the next generation. So all this work that we're doing again is just trying to set up structure and foundation for the following generation to be able to grow off of. What is it that you do that you think makes people actually listen to you when sometimes the culture, the dominant United States culture is to separate ten like these aren't issues at all? You know, I think food is the vehicle that's really helping us to get this story out there because people are very curious about food and people love to learn about new foods and because this is an interesting topic people will take the time to stop and listen. So I've done a lot of talks and you know, I will deep dive into the colonial history right away, because a lot of people are very unaware of this situation. You know, and even just from a personal background, you know, the work that we're doing, I'm just trying to do something to write or wrong of a situation that I grew up with where I grew up within, you know, what people would call a food desert today. And if we were able to go back to more of a culturally and regionally appropriate food system and you could figure out better ways to feed people in need that we would just be healthier in general, you know? So there's just so much to work on on so many different levels. And, you know, I just feel like people are willing to take the time to listen and to see these stories happening in real time and the food really helps. You know, because food is cultural identity and, you know, a think about the food that our grandparents are great grandparents passed down to us and that's something that's really special and unique. But, you know, so much of that history was damaged to us as indigenous peoples because of the history of the U.S. government versus indigenous peoples here. And we're doing everything we can to reclaim a lot of that knowledge and share it. I think really that connection with nature is such an important piece. I think really taking the time to start to learn the names of the plants around me, particularly and even taking it a step further of learning the original languages. So I'm in Minnesota. So we're doing a project where we're putting out working with this park board in Minneapolis and creating a new park where we're going to be putting all these placards so people can walk and see the daco to name of the plant first and then the English name. And then a description of how these plants have been used for various pieces. And I think that connection of learning some of those old languages and learning the uses of these plants is such a great step because our environment is so important. And we have to really understand these natural resources can not be continued to be destroyed over the way it's been. And we have to make that change. And I think that we can all benefit from having a healthier environment. So, as we continue this episode where we're talking about our planet and the environment, I think it's worth noting that, for me, I often think of nature and then technology as opposites. One is inherently against the other. But then, after I had a conversation with author and environmentalist Mariel and Hannibal, she really convinced me that there are all sorts of ways that technology can allow everyday people to engage more deeply with nature to do work as citizen scientists. And to understand what it is that they're seeing around them in the natural world. For Mary Ellen, technology, it can be a bridge between generations and across geography. And here's how using an app that lets you identify animals and plants has done that for her. When I've gone around the country talking about citizen science, I will often speak to groups. I mean, a lot of people want to do citizen science or at gardening groups or botanical gardens. I love love, love those people. A lot of them don't, they just don't want to use a technology. And if you're not also in a community where other people are doing it, it can be kind of lonely on your own. Although there is a community through our naturalist. So it's not everything at all. The thing about it about citizen science is you directly observing nature and making note of it. So with ebert, for example, you don't need to use any technology for that. Also, I think that citizen science, it's actually just understanding that we are part of nature and we need to advocate an observant. So many, many other things, if you never want to do our nationalist, you know, I have no problem with that. It also seems like so much of what we've talked about is such a natural way for parents and kids to be involved together because so many of these questions and for like, what is this world around me? What is that? Why is that happening? These are such kid questions. Not that to at all demean adults who ask them. But kids so want to know, what is a butterfly? Why are there butterflies here? Where do they go? I wonder if you have any specific tips of resources for parents who want to get their kids involved in citizen science initiatives. So one thing I really like is journey north, that's another. There's lots of citizen science platforms out there beyond I naturalist journeying north is one for making note of migrations. So hummingbird migrations, monarch migrations. There's also they have a project on day and night. This is a very interesting. So you can be anywhere in the country and you can with your kids, you can start noticing every day, what time does it get dark? And then, you know, through doing that every day with your kids, you're teaching them quite a lot about really the cycle of life. And then it becomes a platform for talking about the cycle of life. So also, I didn't complete this thought earlier for which I apologize. But that other app seek. Sick was developed for kids because you don't actually want to use I naturalist with kids on their own if they're under 14. Because they are geolocated. And you don't want people to be able to figure out where your kid is when so sick doesn't locate you and the AI, the artificial intelligence works faster. So that's a way to use technology.
"steward" Discussed on How to Be a Better Human
"You're listening to how to be a better human. I'm your host Chris Duffy. On our last episode of the show, I spoke with my friend comedian Jo firestone. And at the end of that conversation, as I always do at the end of our interviews for this show, I asked Joe how she was personally trying to be a better human. Here's what she had to say. So I used to have a compost bin to the Brown ones provided by the city. The ones that are rat proof. So then they took them away. The city took them away. Cities bringing them back. And so today, I asked for one for my building. Big one. There's 13 gallon 21 gallon. I said I'm gonna do the 21 gallon. I don't know if my landlord's gonna let this happen. But I'm trying, 'cause I don't like throwing away food. That's great. I admire that. I've been trying to compost myself in I discovered that. I'm basically just putting things in this big black composer, but I don't think it's becoming compost. As soon as it just becomes a giant vat of horrible rotten food, but we'll see if it works. But that's good for you. I'm glad that's a good human thing. Sure, that's something. Yeah. How to help our planet has come up with a lot of our guests. But the challenge when it comes to helping our planet is that the issues are so multifaceted. In our interviews, I've heard many different approaches and ideas about how to get involved. So, on today's episode, we're going to listen back to a bunch of fascinating moments with guests that we hadn't been able to fit onto the podcast until now. And maybe, just maybe. We might end up with a solution that is more effective than my sad dysfunctional little compost bin. My fingers are.
Charlie and Jack Posobiec Discuss What It Means to Be a Good Man
"All right, this is a good question. Sherman from Grand Rapids, I commonly say, just as some background is in references in the question, be the same person in public that you are in private. Because stop pretending to be somebody that you're not. So if you are in private, a conservative, be a conservative in public. Charlie always say that you should be the same person in public that you are in private. I agree, but what does it look like to be a good person in private so that you carry over that good behavior publicly? I hear Jack talk about his years of sobriety. You talk about the need to explore big ideas and always be constantly learning. Can the two of you just expand on what it looks like to be a good person, specifically a good man in today's day and age Sherman from Grand Rapids? Kind of an open ended question, but I'd go back to I'd go back to the gospels where we're taught to be in the world but not of the world, right? So the idea that when people meet you, that you can talk, you know, I can make cultural references to Game of Thrones and Harry Potter and Star Wars and everything else. But when you meet them, when you meet someone, or I should say, when they meet you, rather, that they should come off with a sense of that person is grounded in something different. And something that's a little bit different than what's pumped onto TV every day. What is your sobriety meant for your life? Not drinking. So, yeah, for me, early on, and I wasn't someone, you know, I didn't do I never considered myself an alcoholic, but it got to a point where I said, you know what? I'm done with this. I'm totally done. Why? And why did you get to that point? You know, I've told some stories about this before, but I had a friend who, you know, I had a friend who got arrested over it and I saw the way that it basically ruined his life. And this was really on early 20s. And I saw how just so many doors were closed to him. We're completely closed by after what happened. And I said, you know, for my life, looking at it, it's not worth it. It's not worth even going down that road, and plus I get to wake up every morning, feeling amazing right now and not just because I sleep on my pillows, which I do. From a food Kirk. There's another promo code out there that people not on this show, but not on this show. But seriously, we do see one of our pillars, actually, and the toppers in the sheets. But my wife loves not knowing, I don't understand. From a coach is the only way to go. Yeah, okay. And you have your mental, the way I look at it is this. The way I look at is this. Parallel talents, right? Parable Italians is that the idea from behind that is that God gives you your talents God gives you your gifts.

"It doesn't really make a difference. Whether or not i sell to the trust door and sell to somebody else because either way i'm not going to have control. But actually in the situation he created he created a steward stewardship council. That will oversee the trust that he is a member of so he has decided to maintain some form of control and the trust agreement states specifically that the business can't be sold so he knows that if it was owned by a private equity company it would certainly be sold in future. That's the next step in a private equity cycle so he can control that outcome end. The trucks also codifies. What the purpose is so. There's a statement of what the trust is intended to do. So the trust goal is to shepherd the assets of the company to make sure that they're used for the purpose so the purpose statement is codified in the trust cream. And then you generally have some list of checks or metrics that are measured to be sure that you're moving in that direction so the founder has said his is what good looks like. This is what the future should look. They design all of that. I'm going to put all the pieces in place to lock it down and let it fly out into the future likable ship. You can't do that with private equity you. Can you can have agreements in discussions in conversations about work. Good looks like and you're not in control and so the private equity group can make whatever decisions make sense to them. And it's not that the private equity folks are bad people by any stretch of imagination. But they are beholden to their their investors investors. Limited partners have an expectation of certain return. And they don't just sit back and say well it's came. We actually think that they're doing his record will take low. Richer should not the accredited equity model or the venture capital model. And so there's that's just the system and how it works. It's not really about the people behind it. It's not good or bad and so that's really where the difference is is. there are many. i'd say the majority of owners who when they're ready to sell the business just ready to be done and what happens in the future is important to them because they they've run their course and they're happy with what they've done in. That's their legacy. Tim is what happened in the past. These founders the differences. They're very concerned about the future. And they want to control in some way back future. As i'm listening about the stewart ownership. It seems that as a founder the return of your investment in your sweat equity may not be as big as if you choose the traditional way. I would say that that's not necessarily the case. I mean it could be that there's trade offs in terms of what you're giving away in order to transition trust ownership but it doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to get less. It's all about the value of your company right. How how strong is your. What is the profitability Company what will people be willing to invest in rights. If you're bringing in investors they're going to pay what they think is reasonable based on the You know the turnover. The prophet the all of the metrics of a company. And so it's possible but you may get an equal part which you won't get at. Is that blue sky. Investors will sometimes give a look at a company. They'll wow we know the lavers we can paul to increase profitability. We can consolidate operations week can reduce staff who can lower prices than patriot vendors..

"Today it was sort of exactly what you'd expect. A scientific meeting to look like lots of charts and slides and bullet pointed lists exactly the kind of cautious abundantly informed scientific debate you would want to see experts having ahead of a big public health. Decision ultimately the panel had to answer this question today. Do the safety and effectiveness data from the clinical trials support approval of a booster dose administered. At least six months after completion of the primary series for use an individual sixteen years of age and older in other words. Should everybody over sixteen. Get a booster shot. The answer in the end was no. The advisory panel voted sixteen to two against recommending a booster dose for everybody aged sixteen or older but then they consider it a narrow question. How about a booster shot for everybody age. Sixty five and older and for people at high risk of developing severe cove will the advisory panels answer to that question unanimous. They voted eighteen to zero. That the answer to that question should be yes now. These votes that a booster shot isn't appropriate for everybody over sixteen but it is appropriate for at risk people. Those votes were not unexpected in public health circles. Even if the media treated them as a total shocker. today we'll have more on that in a second. But i thought this part was also really interesting. The advisory panel today also said the fda should consider including in the risk in the list of who should get booster shots healthcare workers and other people who were at risk of getting exposed to cove getting exposed to it on the job. If the fda takes up that suggestion that would mean that booster. Shots are not recommended for everybody. The recommended for people aged sixty five and up there recommended for people who are have co morbidity otherwise put them at high risk and they're recommended for healthcare workers and teachers and other essential workers who are at high risk because of their job interesting prospect. In terms of. What's going to happen next. We're likely to get a formal. Fda decision next week today was just the advisory panel and the fda isn't required to accept the advisory panel's recommendations but they usually do The cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices will also meet next week. And then we will get a cdc cdc on this matter so we'll see what happens from here but in terms of why the expectations in the media today were so different than public health. Experts expert expectations interested in that. I'm also interested just in the how well supported by the data. These decisions today were and just the person to ask joining us. Now is dr. She's jaw he's dean of brown university school of public health. Dr jaw. thank you for making time tonight. Appreciate you being here. Well rachel thank me back. Is it correct to say that these decisions today were sort of. Broadly expected in the public health community. Even if in the media they were treated as very surprising developments. Absolutely you've got that completely right. I think all of us predicted this is exactly what would happen. Because we've all been looking at the sites we've been looking at the data and the data for irish people for people over sixty five is clear and so we expected the fda advisory committee to say as much the data for younger people is just much less clear. It's not that they don't need a boost or we just don't know right now and so. I expected that issue will get revisited. Maybe in a couple of months when we have more data. But i think most of us i were just not there yet. We can't make that call yet. So and that's where the fda advisory committee you've got and does the age sixty five cutoff seemed clearly indicated to you by the data. Is that the inter in terms of how clinical trials are structured on. These matters is is sixty five. The relevant cutoff point. Is it possible that the data also recommends a a similar sort of risk benefit profile for people over age sixty over age fifty five. Yeah this is a really good question. A lot of the trials in the us tend to look at sixty five point. Four thinking about older people. Why sixty five sixty. Also the cut point for medicare. there's a whole history of using sixty five in the united states. The best data right now from israel and israel actually us sixty and if. I were sitting here last night. Predicting i would've said the fda panel's gonna come down sixty as the cut point because of the israeli data declare a state pick sixty five. Obviously there's no single magical number And if you're sixty three and want the booster may be feeling a little frustrated tonight. Let's see what the fda does end. The cdc in the final recommendations but somewhere around sixty sixty five is a pretty reasonable effort and for people who are watching this tonight who were vaccinated with the maderno vaccine. Vaccinated with johnson and johnson What should they take away from this decision. Which after all west specific pfizer specific defies rica's pfizer is the one who is collected the data submitted to the fda and. That's what was reviewed today. H my expectation is the next four. Maybe six weeks. We'll have a determination on modern. It could be a little sooner than that. The problem here is the john. Jay fourteen million americans have got We are just not giving them much. In the way of good guidance on what to do i think most of us feel like people need something else if they've gone. Jj specially their risk. But we're not hearing much from the fda an really do think we need to get some more data and guidance from the fda on this dr john dean of the brown university school of public health. Thank you as always for your clarity dr john. I really appreciate you being.

Happy friday this has been a weird week in the news. Today has been particularly day in the news. I will tell you all signs point to next week being even weirder. But i will tell you why. Here's a case in point our beloved neighbors to the north our canadian friends. They have their big national election on monday. Prime minister of canada courses justin trudeau from the liberal party. He is facing off against the leader of the conservative party. In canada named aaron tool and candidate has more than just two big parties in addition to the liberal and conservative candidates. Were kind of the marquee candidates. There's also a major candidate from the french-speaking quebec separatists. There's a major green party candidate There's also a party called the new democratic party which is more to the left then justin trudeau liberals and they are led by a charismatic member of parliament named jagmeet singh again elections on monday. Nobody's quite sure what exactly will happen. But it is close enough close enough particularly among sort of the top three candidates a liberal candidate the conservative candidate and the mvp candidate. It's close enough now. That american democrats and other politicians who may or may not have any sway whatsoever with canadian voters who knows they are nevertheless weighing in with last minute endorsements former president barack obama yesterday effectively endorsing justin trudeau to be reelected canadian prime minister today former democratic presidential candidate hillary clinton also effectively endorsing justin trudeau for reelection in canada but then coming up fast on the left flank there's vermont senator bernie sanders not to be outdone weighing in today. As well not on behalf of justin trudeau instead senator sanders is endorsing jagmeet. Singh from the new democratic party and again do canadians care what former. Us presidents and former democratic presidential candidates. Think about who. They should vote for in their own election honestly. Nobody has any idea. Nobody does that. This will have any influence whatsoever. Any any impact whatsoever but whatever's going to happen there is a close enough call at this point that we've got this weird late development of american politicians weighing in which of course could have consequences in terms of who the ultimate canadian government is if the us powers that be particularly the president of the united states who was vice. President to barack obama was a close ally of hillary clinton who now leads a very narrow majority in congress of which senator bernie sanders is a very key and very necessary member. I mean there's cross endorsements from democratic politicians in the united states in a canadian election which is going to produce the canadian government which then our government will have to have dealings with despite the fact that we kind of weighed in on how that should go. Nothing's gonna come between us and our good relationship with canada but to the extent that we're trying to make it more awkward that will help. Russia is also having its federal elections right now. Russia has three days a federal election. Started today ends on. Sunday vladimir putin and his ironically named united russia party They are pulling out all the stops this time. They are running fake candidates to mess with individual parliamentary elections They have spent the last year criminalising and locking up all the actually viable opposition figures that stand in the way of putin and his party. After trying last year to assassinate the main opposition leader in russia alexei volney putin's government has since been holding him indefinitely in prison. Part of his appeal in russia is that he is not just a political figure. He is a very visible anticorruption activist. And if there is one thing that defines the russian government it is a flagrant epic biblical level corruption and the resistance and resentment of russian government. Corruption is something that does unite russians across lots of different ideological stripes. Now as i said novell news organization has been criminalized by putin's government putin's government has arrested and effectively exiled so many people who are part of it but nevertheless nevada organization keeps turning out these corruption reports these exposes about the lavish lifestyles and palaces and yachts and foreign villas and ranches and wineries that putin and his henchmen have accumulated all over the world since putin has been in power and robbing the russian treasury blind. Just today navan. These group released a new report. Getting nevada prison right and everybody who runs. His organization has been chased chased out of a visible russian society but nevertheless they persist today they released a new report which has not been validated by nbc news. This is just me telling you what they have published but what they just published is a new expose that purports to document that perhaps the highest profile politician in russia other than putin himself versus longtime foreign minister You'll recognize him. Actually remember when trump randomly invited him into the oval office along with the russian ambassador embassador on the rights. The foreign minister on the left member he brandon lee brought them into the oval. He gave them a bunch of codeword protected. Top secret intelligence. He wasn't supposed to share with anyone that guy. His name as sergei lavrov nevada today published an expose about him It purports to expose that. Sergei lavrov has a whole secret second family just like putin does in addition to lavrov's official wife that he retains i guess for political purposes. There's according to navales organization a whole secret second wife who nobody's supposed to know about who reportedly travels with them on all his official business which means the government is paying for her She and her family. Also according to this report appear to have been the recipients of lots and lots of very over the top unexplained wealth as does lavrov himself novell newsgroup says that they have discovered that the foreign minister lavrov appears to basically live this very high flying total luxury life. He's got of massive yachts and huge private planes at his disposal for him and his family anytime they want them and mansions all over. The world in italy in london in montenegro They report he appears to be living this with his secret. Second family essentially as a permanent guest of one particular russian oligarch. A guy named oleg deripaska and like all the navalny group organizations. Excuse me navalny group investigations. They have put this investigation together in a way. That is very memorable. Very witty very visual. I'll give you an example in the case of the this mansion in montenegro where the foreign minister seems to spend a lot of time. Navan these group matches together a whole bunch of different. Instagram photos from a sergey. Lavrov family member showing this one interesting. Weird pool shot with the. There's the pool and then there's an angled colonnade looming over it..

There's a lot in this book that i think readers might find ethically challenging but the whole framework for the work that discusses begins with an ethical imperative. This has to do with the unavoidable fate of the earth and the responsibility that comes with the awareness of the extinction of life. Up will go with that. Can you explain happy to so yes it. Is you know it starts with a very simple premise. That has i think clear ethical need and then gets into. Well that's true. What does that lead to a lot of interesting questions are but in a nut show we are the only species with awareness of extinction as you just said and you know we are the only ones that can actually prevent extinction for other species. Obviously sometimes we have caused it which is not great perfect track record on this but with the only ones that can service is really know stewards and you know basically shepherds of life not just our own life because at some point the sun will boy the oceans and if we want to survive we'd have to go elsewhere so mars in elsewhere is not plan b. It's just plan a in the long run. All questions are very clear in the lens of a billion years at and then if it's true that means that we if we want to survive ourselves or other creatures as far as the only ones that know that so it's incumbent upon us to serve as the protectors next week protect current species or even to revive extinct species.

Where do we pick up from there. Well i'm a geek. I prefer intellectual bad ass. But i'm a geek and my love. That i saw it on t shirt somewhere and i asked the woman wearing the t shirt. Can i borrow that phrase trust absolutely and it just really fits salon fun saying it because it's the truth. Somebody's really gonna dive into topic no matter what they're geeking out about their an intellectual bad ass on whatever that topic is and i literally a geek.

A lot of my life was spent doing things related to technology translating technology for businesses. And that all started jennifer. Because i wanted to be an astronaut i child in the sixties and i remember watching all of the apollo and pre apollo flights and the moon landing. And i always like. I want to do that. And i didn't want to go to military so the best way to potentially become an astronaut. I felt was to be in technology and the rest is history in that i did not become an astronaut because i wanted to star trek version of outer space. Where there's not really a lot of politics involved you really know about everybody's just working toward the common cause there may be political things with other cultures but that people on board the enterprise were always working towards a common goal and there was gravity and you could do all sorts of fun things instead of just being stuck in a capsule and being weightless in this tiny tiny space so once i realized that the star trek version of space travel was not there yet. I realize that dream really wasn't mine. If it's a noble dream though nonetheless to be an astronaut especially as a woman you may know that how many female astronauts are not a lot. Russia had the very first female astronaut. And then sally ride was the next. Us woman and there's only been a few to speak of in the united states. And i've not met any of the female astronauts but i have had cocktails with several apollo astronauts fun that was cool and i think that was in your book. That's pretty close to touching phase.

"If i can start making some of those connections and see like oh if i have this degree if i go into this field. That hasn't impacting and granted. There's always make ways to make more money. There's always all of these situations but in general but it helps students kind of frame those expectations for themselves. You know when. I've talked to people about some of their biggest. Learning moments was talking to one guy recently a high school teacher who did it and he put it on the board. He is high school teacher. Like completely unrelated to this. Was like ok guys for this class period. I'm going to be sharing with you exactly like the most important. This might be the most important class period that us have and so he walking through his budget he walked through. How much money does he make. You put it on the board and the person who has tommy could tell me all about the details of it and he was like i thought it was so much money at the beginning and then i realized there was hardly anything left at the end and that gave him the expectation that even with higher paycheck or even with a teacher salary. That seemed like so much money every month. That like giving them. That realistic expectation is is really really powerful And it really helps start framing things out letting them know that. Heads you if you're to doctors and you're going to be a social worker in generally probably not gonna have as big of a home you know and that has nothing to do on the quality of your life right. I i never want i. I have such a strong aversion to ever being like more money equals better because it's just not true right. Yes and so but it is expectation of if you wanna have a five thousand square foot home. You're going to work to be a social worker or going to school to be a social worker at the there is a discrepancy in that and has perfectly acceptable but just knowing that and understanding that and helping think against some of that decision framework that we talk about With helping our kids or helping the students really think through being through some of this but one of those powerful ways is just showing your students. What march last month. Whenever wherever month that might be last month let me just show you budget and then show them the looking at for career options and this is what you're this is what your income would be on this and this is what we need to change. This is how your budget will look differently than mine. when you're in your twenties or whatever it may be the other the other pieces share your story with your students right so often times. I was just talking to somebody recently. That made me think of this. But you know we look at when you're fifty years old. Your life looks so much different than a dozen. It's twenty two or twenty five even from a financial standpoint. So oftentimes there's expectation You know i've experienced this personally. Where i'm expecting myself to live like what i see right. I'm expecting myself to have an established career in life at all these things When just a for many people. That's just not the reality of it. So helping your students syria. Your students see that at twenty two. I i was doing this. And this is my life but you know putting some of the financial aspects around this as well Letting them see that. I think is also really powerful to let them know that. You're not expected to be again false. Expectations students are not expected to be making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year where they're traveling all around the world Whatever your lifestyle may look like It can be giving them more expectations of what that journey looks like and letting them know that it is a journey. It is not a..

"Whatever and he was talking about his one of the things that he's worried about is he has a number of students who are working and this was my story. I was working forty hours while going to school. Full time because you you had to pay your bills. Intuition was a bill that was that was bad was kind of the narrative i grew up with and so any way he was talking to me about it and he was like i have students. Who are doing that. Who are working. Twenty thirty forty fifty hours a week and their grades are suffering. And he's like it's so frustrating for me to see this as a professor because they're not getting involved university aspects. they're not getting involved in all these different ways. Their grades are suffering. So the job that they're gonna get outta college isn't going to be the highest paying job. You know it's gonna be a mid tier lower tier job because they have a lower gpa. They don't have the resume that their peers have and it was just an interesting way of thinking through this where i was like. I never thought that way. When i was going through school i never thought of you know. Maybe it was worth it for me to pull back a little bit on some of those working maybe takeouts student loan and not being crazy wisdom. We want to be really wise on this But we don't often think about the human capital. How much money you know. What is our income potential. That is part of the equation that we often don't look at and again is so rooted in fear because if you have debt and so many times the stories right these are the stories that youth workers carry that parents carry of. I was paying credit card for ten years. I hear those stories all the time of my i. You know. I got stuck with student. Loans it's a massive amount of millennials. Right now i think gen z is just coming up out of school now but somebody millennials are struggling with student. Loan debt it and so there's so much fear of i don't wanna be like them. I don't wanna be like the story that story instead of just like you know what what is wisdom in their situation And a lot of different ways. Yeah absolutely and i think the way we plan and live. Our lives can be nearly summed up in these two terms choices and expectations right. We talked about expectations with bias. Or this is the way that i did it and so this is the way that they're gonna do it and i want. I want my kids to make right choices right. That's what every parent says all the time. I want them to make right choices but the way we set them up to learn how to do that to gain discernment to make that not just to check a box and say i did the right thing but to learn how to get to the point where they can check that box right and So those two things choices and expectations and we've been talking about helping students through the monumental transition of life outside their parents home from graduating high school.

"Are my parents going to be helping. And just knowing that and sir and there's not a right or wrong answer with it right there's that's that's one of the things is that it's very neutral. But knowing that is going to be able to help the student can start making some decisions on that process or if appeared is willing to start paying for some of that. What is it that they how much they want to pay for it. What does that look like How do we have those conversations. A lot of time spent in my office with parents talking about this talking about how to frame it out with their students. They are helping pay for it. Different like that so I think when i think about youth workers is not so much. Here's the answer. It's how do we encourage those conversations and not building them. Sharon shame i mean some people. Yeah some parents feel like failures because they are not able to contribute to their their. There's his tuition Other parents have all the means in the world. But they're like i had to pay for school. And i'm gonna make them pay for school and i see other people who can't afford to pay for your child's tuition and and and they do To their the you know hurting their own financial position and so y- the ranges of this are just. There's so much dynamics on it. There's no you know we wanna pull that. Shame out of it But we do need to have these clear conversations. Because if i know that my parents are going to pay for half of my tuition that changes that changes my decision making changes my decision filter if you will on colleges. Yeah i like that. Approach of a filter and I think that a purchase you just described really Lines up with my ministry approach and really how we even talked to. Students is is not so much. Just settling for answers but learning how to hat learning how to ask better questions and to have those conversations that lead to being able to talk about those answers and it methods because as varied as the approaches are in feelings are on finances. So the answer's right and there's not a everyone has to do this one thing and then this will solve everything right. You hear that from tv salesman. You hear that from people trying to sell products and the one size fits all approach. Rarely works and it certainly does not work with finances and so it's good for us to be able to say. Tell me what you need. Tell me what your sources of income are right. That's what you do as a financial planner. That's what we do and we talked to students about you know. How'd you learn about jesus. He like like what what you know about your faith. And how'd you learn about it. And why do you believe what you believe right. Why do you spend your money..

"And it of creates a culture change And healthy one at that. And i love that you mentioned how finances and being a good steward is very much a part of spiritual development we see it in scripture. We have churches talking about tithing and so this is a very needed conversation especially with students and you knew it so interesting in your role as a youth worker. You're in a precarious position right. Because not everybody has the same resources right so when you look at i mean when you go across two different youth groups i mean. They're going to be some parents. And i see with my clients and the and the people that i talk with and help this process. Some people are like. I'm gonna pay for one hundred percent my college. My students. tuition are my my child's tuition and other people are like we have no money to contribute towards this and so it's a very interesting Kind of position that you're in of providing guidance to this when the family dynamics are so varied It could be a grandparent is paying for their tuition and and all of those factors factor into their decision. And how do you provide guidance. One of the things that we always go back to. I love this quote. That clarity is kindness and And so when i think about how do you help this range of students not knowing that are not on the same spot. They're not all going to be very different situations. Every families in different situation sibling dynamic sibling dynamics. There's so much that goes into the personal finance. Very personal i'll tell you that right now But one of the things is having the students helping them to have a conversation or encouraging the conversation with their parents about our their parents wanting to contribute to their college or post high school careers What does that look like. And oftentimes i find that that when people come into my office they often don't know right there often just kind of overwhelmed.

Using Amazon Fulfillment to Grow Your eCommerce Business with Michael Begg
"A lot of people who listen to the show are small business owners. Many are Web savvy perhaps maybe even web developers so they can probably build their own e commerce. I'm guessing using commerce. That's generally popular platform. I mean it's like a quarter of e commerce sites commerce so If they are you know if we have a small business owner who wants to get into kind of selling stuff online Maybe their own products. Maybe not right because you demonstrated that it doesn't necessarily have to be your own products. What are some of the things that they should think about. As far as research goes As far as like researching what products they want to sell or you know just kind of understanding how the amazon platform works. Let's let's go with kind of how the amazon platform works rate We had previous upset about drop shipping talked about kind of researching products. But if you have tips you know that was two years ago now and not talk here and there. I know a lot of things have changed. I mean the amazon platform is pretty straightforward. Obviously the consumer customer side is a lot better build out than the actual seller side. You know there's a lot of pain points on the seller side. There's a lot of people get frustrated with amazon. Just part of the process amazon is bill to serve their customers not their sellers. Which is its own thing But anyway you sign up with a professional account cost about forty dollars a month from there you upload your listings you need to have. Upc bar codes for your products. Need to purchase those from a gs. One those are about ten acts like three hundred dollars so it's not that crazy from there you can list your products on the platform and amazon will pretty much handle the entire fulfilment side of the sales if you want to again. If you don't have your own warehouse you fulfillment team or you don't wanna be packaging hundred dollars a day to go ship out yourself amazon's great for that you know using amazon. Fbi you can send all your inventory right in. They'll distribute it across the country closest to the consumers that are gonna probably repurchasing your products and then as the orders come in. They'll handle the shipping mail. The customer service in any issues on that end so super helpful. If you are small business any don't have the capabilities to really deal with the fulfillment and customer service aspects. Yourself if you do. I mean that's great. You don't need to use fbi also florida's directly from your warehouse but fbi deafening. Get you a little more visibility on the platform definitely helps you stand out more. Get the prime badge which is another very big selling point when consumers are shopping on the platform and bats more or less the basic steward. I mean there's a lot of other a specific niche things that we could talk about. That can help you sell more. But just getting set up on the platform is pretty straightforward and following those processes. You can pretty much do it on yourself on your own. Yeah for sure. So the kind of use cases. I'm thinking through right. Now is maybe we have like a maker who's creating their own stuff Or we have somebody who's may be looking into drop shipping or or Retail arbitrage i. Okay somebody who's selling other people's products and it seems like i if i'm making something i can. I can basically send it to amazon for them to fulfil or i assume if i'm doing some If i'm buying someone else's product in bulk i can have them send it directly to amazon is i. Is that how it goes or do i need to do. I need to me then. Intended to amazon. Yeah i mean most of the time we're going to have it sent to yourself or you're going to be seeing yourself in person and then you're going to be sending it to amazon. That's probably about ninety percent. There are some people that will send it directly amazon for you but it's a little bit more difficult to find. I see it really doesn't matter what size business you are having employees. There's there's so much potential. Here on the platform declined. That was literally a one person operation to start with. It started working with us a couple years ago. She was doing about fifteen twenty thousand dollars a month in sales. And you know two years later. She's doing three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month in sales and now she's actually being able to build a team i mean she's she's making significant revenue. She has a significant team to help her now. And that's just one example of how quickly you can grow on the platform. You know how much you can scale a business. Just through the amazon sales channel. Yeah that's great until and this is Kind of reason we're talking about. This is because as a freelancer as a small business owner. You worry about when you're one big client says we don't need you anymore right like we wanted. Diversify our income and so Selling through amazon is a good way. Now i suspect of the listeners. Like me Do more kind of digital products. You mentioned that. You started selling books on kindle. I wanna ask you about that in the members only show sure But in general amazon. We're talking mostly about physical products. Here right yeah. For the most part the kindle side is just one piece of amazon there's a royalty based business so you create a digital content. And you're making money forever. I mean books. I published eight years ago or still right review royalties every month. So yeah that's just one way to do it but You know physical product businesses are also pretty easy to build platform in not that challenging to do on. It's not a fulltime job. Do it on your own if you have a few products that you're selling so and that's fantastic because the fulfilment is the hardest part. I don't have room in my house to keep inventory right. I've got two kids now. So i don't know that they're toys r. Where my inventory would be Now now the other part of this is that you your personal path has led you to creating amc advisers and you have you say you're running a remote team of thirty right yes. So let's let's talk about kind of how you built that team and then how you moved to remote right as right now. Listeners can see this. Of course. But i'm looking at you in an office with multiple desk but you're by yourself. I assume because we're recording this in the midst of a pandemic yes that would be a good assumption. Actually kind of a funny process that we went through. I mean it started with Definitely working remotely and then coming into his office and now now we're remote again because of the pandemic. Yeah i mean as a business. We started growing. It was myself into other partners in the agency star way than we were handling a lot of things ourselves. We were able to get to about forty thousand dollars a month and grabbing you with us stanley which was nice. I mean that was like ninety percent margin so that was a nice little payday. Then we realized if we wanted to actually take you beyond this build. Something that had some equity value or or something that could provide an exit in the future We really need to build a business. Not just be doing freelance work again. If you're relying on a lot of clients a couple of big clients that are really bringing in revenue. We kind of were It's there's a lot of risk. Hang your business model that way. Just put it that way so we realized that we had to start scaling. We started using. Birds will assistance in the philippines So that was one aspect of our remote worth team. Obviously there's definitely challenges with that time zone. Being one of the big ones we as an agency. We need to respond to clients quickly. We need to provide good customer service in dealing with time zone. Differences created a lot of issues around that sometimes so we continue to grow and i actually came to guadalajara. Was where my girlfriend. Why i'm still here And as we continue to grow we need more people so we started hiring client facing people remotely in the us and content team people here in mexico so doing graphic design content writing Administrative stuff things like that now actually started hiring client facing people here in mexico as well so it's just been a process of scaling like that. Obviously march twenty twenty hits in that kind of all changes The other pandemic comes in. Now everyone's working remotely in mexico now. We have eighteen people completely remote and it was. It's obviously a big change. I mean i know it affects people differently By we had a great offer community prior to the pandemic it was great like how people we worked with really enjoyed. And now i know a lot of people are missing. Adding that interaction with everyone impervious ended up the same talking through slack for example. But it's one of the challenges that that most companies are facing.
