Are We Due Salvation??
"Fijian's chapter four verse twenty five therefore laying sod falsehood speak truth each one of you with his name worked for we are members of one another voice namesake prescribed Dr Jabbar Busy Apologize Tunes and follow us on Soundcloud as we seek the Kingdom of God and find out what we are even doing here grace now to the one who works what are you doing works you gotta be baptized work's gotTa do this gotTa do that works right and says his wages are not counted as a gift but as his do and another thing I want to think about is and look to him and say I'm do salvation I am do salvation God I worked of God our salvation right but think how beautiful that is the fact that God gives us salvation is a gift I did what you asked I did my do my wages are salvation you owe me pay up they will say that that's not what they think or that's not what they feel about God if you believe that your works save you is by your when I used to believe that my works as me my works Credit Credit Me Righteousness remember those times and I think about them tomorrow be my wife birthday she if she gives a gift he's not because she earned it ahead to work for it is a token been pretty good for me I must say and tomorrow I'll be celebrating with my bride for her thirty first birthday praise the Lord thirty one years on his Earth by God's grace and his Mercy Sabi celebrating that so if you would wish her a happy birthday for me I greatly appreciate that Mormons Islam and just anyone else the people who believe in baptism and regeneration that you had to be baptized in Jesus name and I didn't come to my mind is I read is verse is how could we ever how can we ever stand before God of Heaven today also a part of the Christian podcast community I hope your day has been going well on this Lord's Day man is impacts me in because I think about all the people who believe in a workspace belief system Church of God in Christ Jehovah witnesses the idea of this gift salvation being a gift and I hate to call it really an idea is not an idea reality if we're in Christ it is the free gift we're not owed it we don't deserve it but as a gift as alison I'm thinking about like like and that in that order in order to receive salvation is your works must be complete in order to be saved if you are lacking any of love towards her right but as well God gives us he gives us the gift of Salvation Grant says on today's show I want to take time just to look at scripture Romans four four ambler read it real quick and now to the wall welcome back everybody to the prescribed truth podcast I'm your host Jamal banning the one who seeks to distribute the truth that the doctor prescribes to the church and the in who works his wages are not counted as a gift but ask his do and a reason why I wanNA talk about this verse and how it work any of these works this ritual of baptism new you're not saved I think about them when I read this verse I think about myself back in a day how can we ever dare to say that to the God of Heaven and I know a lot of people like Jehovah Witnesses Mormons and so on so forth they were denied Pinson's and we can't pay back I mentioned this on my youtube channel and I'll and I'll speak to Goo brother my arturo how much water contact me you can do so by emailing me a prescribed dot truth Jimoh dot com or you can call me at eight Oh one nine eight zero sixty three thirty three have you ever gifts gave someone a gift and when they try to repay you back for the gift that you gave you a little offended have you have you inputs s what God does when he grants salvation where he gives us the gift of eternal life we don't oh him anything he's not merits they you gain salvation did that is exactly what you are saying and that is Equa Paul is saying you say when he says he's he's over Saints F podcasts you should check that out when you get a chance but I was having a conversation with him about this and I asked him now actually got the same would that at all I mean I know I have I I remember giving someone a few dollars just because just wanted to give it to him you know a seal of our inheritance a promise from God as beautiful so not only does guy you know whether it be some gas money or pay for lunch for day over it gives maybe I feel like I gotTa pay you back Oh you you know away where we won't fall away in follow other gods guys this is amazing God is sovereign that's unacceptable to God because he's given us his Holy Spirit praise the Lord praise the Lord Grant Repentance He grants us and gives us the means by which we can stay in endure in him for the rest of our lives where we won't turn asking for anything in return right I saw I know some people just like a Lotta the oneness pentecostals and stuff like that say that we're trying to at this point but they felt like they had to pay me back and I struggle with that I struggle with defective feeling I have to also one who decides to bless me with something and if he's chosen to give you that gift you're blessed and has nothing you can do to repay him so like he gives it to us he also gives us the means by which we can be kept oh man now only does he grant a salvation I just wanted to take the time to encourage you would that encourage you that salvation is a gift remember that guy's wherever just be be a blessing and it gives you something with nothing with no strings attached no looking for anything back in return anything right because when we receive such good news such an amazing gift a salvation as eternal life then we can't help but want to sir salvation but it's because we absolutely love God we want to please him because he's our God and he has declared us as his people his day this isn't a gift salvation isn't a gift from God eternal life isn't a gift we earn it Tom you may be tempted to take it upon your own and you own hands that to gain your own righteousness remember the salvation is a gift from God so now back to those who say that justified by their works you may not want to emit it but what you are saying give us a gift of salvation he maintains His Holiness and his righteousness and justice by yet still giving us the means by which we could be kept so that we can Sara Nova hearts man the fact that if we're born again were in dwelt by the Holy Spirit which is a seal it is due to us we have the right to demand it from God because I was baptized in Jesus name therefore possible how do we get faith faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God how do we believe what happened to satisfy God in your flesh bio says apart from faith it's impossible to please guide in inches go along and do what we WANNA do right not in our flesh we will do what we WANNA do by having a new heart but we won't go in obey our flesh and live a life it to save a wretch like me like us we can't help but
FTP Ep. # 183: The Dodgers Kershaw Dilemma and Why They Refuse to Accept It
"Welcome to the fantasy throwdown podcast bringing you the latest sports news fantasy analysis and opinions don't forget the hot takes and have a sport show hello hunting these days. What about hot cakes though hotcakes now here's your house ready to jump into the thick of things dwayne calendar now what the pitch selection was Clayton kershaw pitches scare in the postseason and teams pounce on it it is odd one heading into the finning why is Clayton Kershaw on the mound in the eighth inning for the dodgers Clayton Kershaw one of my favorite targets on this show because I keep saying it time after time after wrong clinker shawl against the entire roster of the Washington nationals in his career has they have to seventy nine batting average against him and up until tonight they only hit time nobody listens nobody questions when I call out the dodgers for giving it extension when it's duly undeserved move to Mr Kershaw for repeated postseason failures and of course it came back to bite them in the ass yet again because guess what on the East Coast and the nationals got the monkey off their back thanks and no no small part due in the postseason gets on no matter who the opponent is I don't care what anyone tries to say the defendant I don't care what they say about even unto Bait anymore even dodgers have had to acknowledge this but dwayne cling Kershaw has great numbers against the nationals I facing Anthony Reggae tone and want Soto first of all folks are going to say but Dwayne but we gotta talk about this dodgers nationals game game five that just concluded were will pass midnight season has been and pretty much everything else in the world of sports not even getting into the sovereign nation that is currently influencing thing this is the fantasy throwdown podcast basically been on hiatus for a little while just because of how crazy the NFL go into La and take down the dodgers seventy three in ten innings in a game they were trailing three he's their best pitcher incorrect it's not even close to have Walker Bueller is the dodgers ace of the staff it's it's not control over the NBA which we shall not name so we don't get taken off of I tunes but with ever possible business interests there could be Three home runs I say up until tonight because the the national sit to Bob's against him in the postseason Clayton Kershaw even this year and guess what if reared its ugly head again in the postseason but let's get down to it the nationals he is the teams are pouncing on it and the fact that matters even when he had great stuff Clinton Kershaw pitch pitcher scared into post with the amount of money that the X. Increased for Kershaw extension to thirty eight million per year guess what the dodgers never had much of a person lineup guess what he had no business being out there I'm waiting to hear what they dave relocated but if it's only eight to eighty nine of really good hitter can take advantage of that and when you're going up against the two best Roberts has to say the dodgers manager has to say on his rationale for keeping Curcio out there because it it boggles my mind at eighty eight to eighty nine per hour fastballs well yeah they were proudly decent enough pitch pitches where the season now his stuff is very good at ain't great anymore so he he fi the nationals feasted upon to eighty average walks homewards allowed all higher it's all higher he gives up home runs like the guy who has career numbers under five hundred postseason slugging banning thirteen that says they care all about the analytics as the dodgers to it boggles my mind that the constant acquiescing it's a he's a Pez dispenser it's not even close that Clayton Kershaw is a terrible postseason pitcher I've been talking about this it's too small of a sample size clinkers husband has been utterly miserable in the postseason for years upon years and his defenders have been going the bathroom for years he's thirty one years old at this point he's not kid anymore he has been terrible he continues to be terrible here are Clayton Kershaw els updated postseason stats the extras his era is four point four three over one hundred and fifty eight innings for well over a decade he's not a good postseason pitcher we've have antlers most people always say when it comes to the postseason pitch he didn't pitch awful but he wasn't great either so stop trying to essentially the positive I'm tired of this clinker shells career stats in thirty two games twenty five starts his record is now nine eleven he got decision tonight obviously because of the game in thirty two games he said twenty five starts so again this is Matt what are he starting or is in the bullpen and six nine point seven it's not the case in the strikeouts because the numbers are still there for case it's the home runs allowed it's the big old double that in the postseason again this is what I talked about when I say the man pitches scared in the postseason case through ninth inning lost game two for the dodgers well and people like oh he pitched one no he gave up three runs at five innings that's not a quality star eater so he wasn't he didn't and the reason why he gets hit hard is because he can't he pitches to contact and the postseason when you're going up against excellent everything you need to know because it is different in certain circumstances there's no question about that there's no question about that and hitters the swing Mrs there so you have to be able to pitch a different style to actually get every four home runs allowed when he gives up he gives up deep pops it's like these are questionable hits like he gets hit hard this hundred eight INEX- he's got a career era of two point four he's almost and they couldn't stand Russell Wilson guess what the seahawks still found ways of winning games hitters out in the postseason and he is utterly incapable of doing so I'm tired of having this argument with folks who keep going by stats alone stats don't always tell you I am absolutely done talking about the dodgers with their insistence on trying to make Clinton Kershaw with Russell Wilson even though every single member of the Legion of boom is gone Richard Sherman's gone yet the Seahawks keep winning because Russell Wilson is that good when you have a guy that good and delivers in Clutch Modes Earl Thomas has gone I mean you go down the list Everyone Kam Chancellor gone everyone's gone from Seattle Oh and the best part about all this is the dodgers are fifteen seventeen in the postseason games kershaw's appeared supposedly for why certain guys can get highlighted and be the face of the franchise when the Seattle seahawks were going through ohka point of the franchise because this is the one bugaboo and and and it's I'll give you the opposite example is the only reason why he hasn't gotten ragged on more by his teammates because they don't Wanna rag on him they cling to succeed but he is the biggest it as as underwhelming as the Saint Louis Cardinals are the cardinals are probably going to the world series which is comical in the postseason as well that's the face of your franchise that's guy people can rally behind the fact that Clinton Kershaw is so well liked are there process with the Legion of boom in Russell Wilson and the Legion of boom members kept complaining about how the seahawks basically make the team about Russell Wilson I find themselves with a very long season answering questions about Kershaw and why he can't get over the hump when the simple fact of the matter is Kershaw a contract extension and a raise on top of that I'm laughing because literally the dodgers the star your franchise the AC franchise you are better without then you are with him I'm I'm done had to do to accommodate for Kershaw the had to move autumn cells in this mess didn't have to they absolutely could have avoided this entirely the dodgers have the now this was such a week year for the National League the dodgers had every right to cruise to the world series and because of of the additional luxury tax bill so the only teams that are still facing higher pay nothing absolutely nothing at all so when you come right down to it as much as people talk about he could never get over the hump that was the that was always the Bugaboo Kershaw I couldn't understand why the dodgers committed as much money as it did knowing that two hundred million they still paying into the luxury tax the problem is and because of everything that the basically have been trying to trim as much salary as possible by going young but still had so much salary on the books for the disaster that they had you know it came down through Chris Sales Elbow basically imploding on itself and we have the Yankees who moneyball and teams being smarter with their payrolls you basically have the Yankees third highest payroll Jacoby Ellsbury you know with a all these players that don't play for the team anymore that are still on brigadier anchor on the entire squad that dodgers team is too good with one hundred six months at a regular season to be going on coal and they need Garrett Cole because Clinton Kershaw as I've said repeatedly it made no sense bringing back Clinton Kershaw they needed I feel butts in the seats because Atlanta getting their asses handed to them ten straight postseason series in a row fans are not coming all those players because they are g just under the luxury tax as a space B so in the wildcard round to the nationals the list like the nationals are not good they're not that good I actually Luxury tax penalties are the red sox the cubs and the Yankees the cubs had a fire Joe because they're paying so much money in luxury tax ah prioritize a top pitcher and still might not get them because there's so many teams that need a number one pitcher but the dodgers need arbitration you're GonNa have to start moving some of those players to get other guys em- place because the bottom line is to pay high prices for that new stadium at the team can't get out of playoff series in the wildcard round or I mean in the offseason guess what it paid off dividends because they're back in a national league championship series at the drumming out the brace the cardinals it
Final Preview Podcast: Azarenka vs. Li
"Yeah the mm-hmm I think it was pretty much totally different otherwise I think you've clearly would give lead the agenda momentum department there but is that really something Rodriguez you wonder whether if she if she can if yesterday's type of play is is the norm for her she could she could definitely be after yesterday what is what's the crowd reaction to she she able to ignore what is probably going to be a pretty strong is gonNA carry over to this final things kind of reset at this point between these two we'll see this is sort of a special case for as a rank how does she come out another edition of the Australian Open podcast here tennis dot COM ED mccracken talking with Steve down in Melbourne GonNa look at the women's final it's between the mm-hmm as well as one meeting on Blue Clay in the dread Steve these two played completely they play they both won in straight sets in the semis happen yeah it's hard to tell you have to you have to know what she was thinking she did when she went to the sideline on on one side it's it's suspicious Tori House Aranka Alina just to kind of brief you on their record their head to head it's five to four in favour Aranka maybe more telling is that has also won the last four meetings between them all of which have been played in the last fourteen months couple WTI championship meetings there timing because she's just blown five points on the other hand she did when she went to the sidelines he did point to her chest and her back and she had that stretched other think about all of the time out controversy and what ended up being the huge story of the match her taking This extended ten minute it a dual timeout it was revealed after she'd misfired matchpoints insulin Stevens was just out there kind of waiting for anything I WANNA get to Lee and and her performances in just a minute while we still have as a rank as semi-final fresher might you know what did you think uh I think it'll be a it'll be against her after her after the match yesterday can Sloan Stevens is she going to be able to relax forget all of that I think she will absolutely not a good shot after yesterday and just the way she seems to have have fixed the sum of problems and and with with her new coach Carlos it's off but the same time that was part of it and that's part of why she why she went over and why she felt panicky I would say it's probably a combination of her the first two answers didn't mention her back so that's also suspicious but in the end I don't think she made that up the back problem so you can't so like you said Yeah I think there's a sort of a reset I think lead Nah you almost have to look at her she's not favored because the number one but you do anneke mentally and having this heaviness physical problem completely it's unfortunate that her first answer L. Against Sharipova who I mean who was so dominant for the first five matches tournament and then runs into a very clinical performance from Lee and dot docx training to take her off the court so there there was something physical there wasn't just wasn't just I'm choking I need I fear against her like I said again the Aussie Pratt isn't like a New York crowd or it won't be the time the totally not that route she kept should that same levels she hit she out hit Maria the whole day she counterpunched while she she pushed her around to serve better than thank you can make cases for both both ladies here for as Aranka I think it's a kind of a matter of reestablishing herself as so I don't know only she really knows she can learn from this yeah or at the very least this match could kind of as a rank and so on so yeah I think it's I think it's after yesterday it's a more interesting and more fifty fifty type of proposition for one for one thing if she loses I believe Serena will act sheep still become the world number one you know as rank of course came off a player box and then she'll get mad that will feed on itself but she didn't even start to miss the shots on to start to get edgy so there was no was no real issue now at this match between Rankin lead do you do you feel that either player certainly needs this title little more than the other uh-huh nervous at the beginning Li took advantage of that and even at the moments when you thought that Marie would get back into it lead just kept she didn't start missing now she there was never a point which even had to worry about usually she'll miss a few shots and then just look over she doesn't want to slam since since last year's Australian Open so and this is a chance to avoid plane Serena or Maria suspicious withdrawals timeouts in the past as well but she's also somebody she passed out on the court the US Open so that that's GonNa make you maybe a little more panicky so patchy Rodriguez she's also he's also counseled her sort of mentally had they call them stay in her own place on the court don't it in here in Melbourne and for Lee you know she's been to the stage before playing cloisters two years ago in three set final and is semi final she ended up winning it six two six two and it was over you know before you knew it yeah you know she came out Maria came out played poorly in I know one thing you've mentioned often that Lee didn't really dip it all in her place she kind of always has these strong patches and she's just sustain that throughout the completely condemn her for but but let's hope she doesn't try to pull anything like that again she has had one she's had she's had race or Get US past that point in you know depending on the quality of that of course about Lee what did she in your mind do so well call it up in in the bigger what's going on you know sort of to focus more nets to be working we'll see now they could all go away if she misses a few shots against as a rankled she has a forehand she's I know she's been working on four hundred with Rodriguez and that was a much cleaner shot serve as well she's been working on that looked better the US Open final very impressive showing against Serena but you know obviously it has been a year since she won that first major that breakthrough especially and considering some of Oz ranker's latest experiences or play she also didn't really play well you know in a couple I know last year she was point I thought she was she was getting better mentally and then she she completely lost it in the next match so we'll see about that but it's Ching you know thirty one years old to still looking great but obviously her window to win these alita vans obviously in a close a little sooner than Aranka if she's got to be number one you know she she doesn't want to start to become sort of one slam number one will reestablish her there and this news events head over to tennis dot Com we'll see what what her emotional what's her reaction is to whatever holdovers from the semifinal that could hurt her this all might play out in who who will win this year I'm thinking you know from from what we saw recently I wrote about Lee actually the she seems to Aslam final she's wanted to slam final this would put a winning this could make it feel like she could win more slam she's she's on a different level she'll have to slams listing tennis DOT COM podcast you've been enjoying tennis dot com weekly podcast thanks for listening for all the that'll turns out plenty of coverage of course the women's final we're GonNa have a live chat during the match three thirty am eastern Steve of course with the report after it means a lot to both of them for different reasons because really proud of being number one cheat means she's not like maybe some other players who were been there America just on just on overall record her I would say generally superior player are we will see what are your thoughts on everything as ranked starsoap stay with that in and also the fact she's won the last four times she's just generally a steadier more solid player I think Serena or Federer allowed to don't usually say that they're not bothered by not being number one she likes it she she wants to be that that that'll be a big deal to try to keep that Ulis into the tennis dot Com podcast and here's your host Edward Grogan be like the NFL's Baltimore Ravens sweet she just kind of getting hot at the at the right time and and is really just been so impressive over the past few rounds Lina I think it's almost like a opening to a different type of career mean she is older so maybe maybe she doesn't have that much time with but she's lost mm-hmm I just I thought she was pretty passive against Jamie Hampton for one I just think overall taken will get both their bodies of work and really where they are now I am going to pick Leeann this match but it's encouraging for sure to be where he was playing so well to to going
2019 MXdN Post-Race Interviews
"Our and winning races the name pro circuit has worldwide recognition that you have bought the best and we strive to get you the very best products for your buy from the pro circuit racing based in Corona California and founded in Nineteen Seventy eight by Mitch Payton is known for two things building high quality horse the captain I have to say that both of the guys that I came here with were incredibly hard working and professional through the time that we are here chose one wrong line in twentieth just how quick it happens man it was tough conditions tough tough conditions and Honestly some jump for hard to just jump you know and it was like one of those deals where you would one fell in front of me like around the second turn and that was that so it's it's done and then the second one I really don't know I was like maybe ninth or tenth and then we do know exactly that's that's the name of the game where would you pass how could you pass after you hope that someone hit the wrong deep spot I mean it kind of sucked because we put in you know a lot of work to be good at a completely different thing than what the race was so that sucked but all in all like you know Osborne as a member of the losing team you say that I was one year soft von Sucks that you want to happen they happen yeah I mean we were very not not overly optimistic you know we weren't silly after yesterday but it definitely gave us you know a flash of hope Justin was really really good the whole weekend and Jason was was writing well and yeah just shit deal really I mean sucks strange day a road really well in the first murder to come through the fifth and then the third just got in behind some squirrels in the beginning maybe Fifteenth Twentieth and then Guy Thirteenth I mean straight up had to suffer goggles but the ad just didn't didn't make it hurt his hand or something and they got their answer because he was a shell yeah yeah dude he was so good yesterday like awesome so yeah just be going through like what he thought was something solid and then you're just like you know on the nose it's just weird so strange check I I not criticizing there's no excuse it it is what it is and it was a lot of work to get us to hear as good as we were and then to kind of have it rain and kind of blow it all away offend I think that dynamic changed a little bit right off the bat when Jason and Justin crash together like that was worse case scenario so literally worse things is what it is I mean we'll C- compare this to the loss this one's a little tougher for sure as far as losses go so justin yesterday fast score for won the race than the rains came and everything else did he hurt himself he looked like he wasn't himself in that second yeah he did I think when him and Jason came together I mean it's one of those deals matter Lee we were kind of underdog straightaway and here we've we've put in a lot of work and a lot of effort to come here and faulkner Gary March banks and Martine dot loss visit pro circuit dot com for more info on all the services and products pro circuit we race are and they both have just as much had just as much passion for what we're doing is I did and I I appreciate that like a lot so aw start was everything you're the inside gate both your times and it didn't didn't happen no reason why or did separate reasons why are the first one actually was good and then a lot of work put in by everybody you gotta be a bit bombed I mean certainly road well in the first one but that third moto you know you can do better yeah for sure it was do San Prep and ride a lot of different settings and test a lot and a lot of work and it's just kind of Sour banney means you know it's it's the same for everyone but I think that there's better better racetracks you weren't pumped on it before we started the day so I can vouch for that you weren't like saying this is gate and that's what I can kind of rest easily honest knowing that we did everything we could thank you thanks I am I mean I know that it's good for the spectators maybe the ones in the grandstand that we're getting rain have gale force winds and rain hitting them but team Australia manager man a real surprised today like fourth overall at one point Duffy's bike blows up late in modal three you guys finish twelfth or something but you know from you guys and what you did and everything else right yeah I think that's the main thing you know I'm not saying we changed the game or anything by any means but the effort was there and and that's what I see I can see well listen you guys put on a hell of effort before the race and you're all in and it was awesome see didn't work but you know hopefully maybe to feed your team you can learn a little bit not saying this now because of the race that you had today no it wasn't awesome at any point you know there's some a lot of historic Marcus Jackson in Europe that you can go to and this is kind of isn't what so it's good for the future of Australian motocross this is this would be a terrible track to race on as racer anyways breath even expired so much we can do is just hold their heads up high and regroup for next year and sent him way back and if if signs of buzz you know it doesn't really matter you know the the Duffy kid was sending it out there at one point Dean Ferris great does nations rides and is the veteran his score was going to be the one that was dropped and you were keeping the two kids scores Yeah Yeah now the definitely the like look it's not your eighteen such team start your C team it's not your d team but you gotta be happy I think maybe the results don't show it but yeah fourth overall for a long time yeah just super bombed for the guys you know it's top breaking and get that close then D. and F. O. bike failure but I mean yes so the kids are either going to sink or swim and that was pretty hard today so now I'm proud of him they did a great job and you know I think they got you know bright future ahead of very long so yeah it's just a Bummer Guy Roy their hot out this weekend and no one expected us to do anything so and we're GonNa have a really tough choice next year because once the guys that we thought we're going to go this year old get healthy then you know we're going to have you know seven guys choose from these young kids you know short everybody but they're you know they're good and they're talented so I think these guys some is and I don't think they'll be in Australia the fact that they went and they came here and did so well even though the results isn't show it I mean that's bodes well for twenty twenty one twenty two whatever for you as as a manager yeah outside of the world and on our budget and not have every single thing with you and Regan writer stock bone stock bike with a pipe on it you know so great with this weather right now being a on a pavement on the pavement not not out in the fields I think it would have been obviously tracks I think I think both guys they all Rhode hats outside just tell Phoenicians you know it's hard to it's hard to come across this the fourth overall yeah I was super pumped I mean we are a little bit of bad luck you know with Kyle getting stuck just stuck in attorney and crash you got stuck what happened okay so the guys did today this condition so I if I went to yeah I went worth about a lap to go so just like pull in so awesome for what's going on yeah he's pretty devastated right now 'cause he's never had the nf before and he's whole he's whole career so did you like the fact that come into a road race track and making a man made facility and building that's something that you you're okay with or much having a bunch of dirt bikes he was actually loving it so I guess that's what it is seventeen so overall those nations yeah I mean those last few laps of that event I motor that he yeah he was he was pulling like four seconds on people in front of him and just one segment let alone the can you don't get a start you can't pass I don't think it was much fun for these guys and put yourself in those shoes if you raised it looked miserable there for me but obviously push it off like yeah yeah he got stuck in we had dean and seven then clouds running I motor and then call got stuck in return get ready for next year well thanks Jessica Cooper Hey Yesterday was fantastic your speeders great caught fire the worst thing that could happen today would be mud the roller is kind of like I don't know pauline kind of one left a little bit then I want left and then I called like an edge and then I was kind of fallen and then Ahmad by law like the next guy was back in like seventeenth and he was intense it was looking really really good there so uh-huh but that's just the same for everybody and a lot of people have some up and down pretty up and down day other than the Netherlands really so but you know that were the heavy favorites I turn so the forward these definitely got me on the start and I was kind of temper eleven and not bad and then really cool event if it would if the weather would have held out so who knows it's hard to tell them this when you got weather like this I don't think it matters where you are just miserable how much do we uh-huh especially like we said yesterday was so good for you in all your good mud Sandra anyways but these are such bad conditions if you go down early or you don't get a start or whatever right yeah it's just makes it ain't and a first lap crash you gotta just be bummed out Bomba beyond belief yeah it was the vision was very tough out there and I couldn't even see by the end of the go back qualifiers yesterday and didn't end up that way but but nice work yeah no it was good you know kyle was leading they mix I mix too close air for until he got stuck in I mean I mean look it's just a qualifier you're gay pick was already chosen but I had to feel pretty good in front of the world's stage yeah definitely felt good it was good steppingstone race we got like injections in it but now I it was it didn't work whatever it was so yeah I could barely even pull in the clutch for the stars so it's all downhill from that do not have a clutch after the fall yeah it broke I was on there but it was flopping around I thought I saw that man yeah bummer how much divisions just the main problem so treacherous out there and you can't see the lines and everyone's going back and forth so I live is always chaotic and that's kind of what bit us here sure by Derek Yeah he's not you know especially black they didn't even have to build you know it just it's just the stock market impala man that's all I really really recall from that but later I found out Jason so that the house now and I wanted to hear but literally the worst could happen to the team the whole experience ghetto is I'm blessed it was a good experience and we thought we prepared as good as we could've and put some suspension on some snow I wouldn't really say that I I will I will yeah like I said real surprise of the weekend I think qualification adopted by went or no stuff bike went to so two d anathema also not ideal no I think that so yeah it's just a bummer that Jason went down with me and I hit pretty hard after that one was it on a few fifty versus the four I live it was not good so yeah nothing to say about it but saw pretty unlucky both of us down the furniture him yeah a lot of tracks but you know even regan at the end of that first motor guys man I I was miserable out they already had that reduced real tough especially today I think it would have been pretty decent on any like on a dry day I guess but you just couldn't see that was the main the thing really to regret telecommute crumbled on this on so yeah we'll go back and rest up how do they feel to win yesterday I mean and for today which didn't turn out but other than that yeah it was great to get the whole shot and ron kind of my own race and I think it's really cool to re commendable that the effort you all three you guys put it in so nice work yeah I feel runs forget a consistent day in at all come together for us you are Paul's Jonas Hey man nice job today you gotta be happy with it obviously you guys your team your this now those guys is it's colder different people and you just yeah great experience overall cool man hey thanks for doing this appreciate it you guys put in a lot of work didn't work out but it was tough to value for top ten you know I think also in the second world a little bit Messed up Jeffrey start because I was battling humor straight and push him off of it so yeah Nice job good job yesterday to very good strong rise so you gotta be still thank you thanks a lot Sean Simpson man what a race good for you guys really impressive and you know it might have been better if Nathan's bike had given away in one of the races you gotta be stoked we're we're incredibly happy as a team eighth I was like all right yeah that's cool that's cool so at USA was six so yeah not that far off your next job officials pretty knuckles are pretty pretty bad looks like I got in a fistfight that in the second race that was kind of what was bugging you were you able to block that out or was there other things going on in the second it make any big mistakes Nogal executive he never got to start a you did yeah for sure you didn't get a study at you already on Coming in today I felt good because I like conditions like this and for sure I would start helping got six game which is also good for me and do this across the podium that weekend and this weekend we crawled up there as well because fronts gave as a gift on the last lap I didn't know anything my mechanic was doing a great job the second place team did all right but you did really well too yeah it was good you know like a team that finished eighth overall which is the best result ever yeah so that's pretty pretty cool give me signals but nothing to do with the actual race I think on the first sloppy ads P. Three for the open class do I don't care just let me know where I'm in the at the chance to do it again come back some avenge on these guys the whole experience you what'd you think of the whole thing I mean you came in a little bit later this other guys but you were here really put in the work what'd you think of elected this weekend so Nathan coming in from from Enduro World Championships in West Series East over excelled this weekend these really spike yeah like started those conditions really but you know we've been writing in conditions like this wintertime hero because it's raining so much and we are more useful than the US on a personal note seven years coming for me I started back in Oh eight on a two fifty in the open class Donnington Park and Jason the whole overall thing but on a whole it's been it's been an incredible weekend you know as I said on on the press conference this is actually a B team for team Great Britain and As I say I didn't know anything came over the finish line and it was the team manager I pulled off the track and turn right right he just give me the three fingers and I was like dude it's been a tough grind I've been close a few times I think broken chain via the don't even mention that one it was it was bad you know we were himself underperformed in the first mortal second what we pulled off a great result you know I'm on the inside in the second race today otherwise he was up there again like he was impressive I made a joke on one of my dump shows that you guys just gamespot because you had Ben's jerseys already made I mean like you just gave you didn't WanNa Make New Jersey's but off commissions today one of the one of the worst ones for you ever really tough likes they did a really good job detract because the first stew consistent morals not making any big mistakes for sure be cool to open overall Glenn whose writings really well today again and finishing through entry for was really good yet Nathan's credible writer off knowing that guy for a long time you know Ben would have been a great pick for the next class Adam stepped up into that role really well race and I'm about to go on to a four or five weeks vacation now we're going to go into America for maximum these welden we're going to California after that with my wife what's wrong it was nice to see something different it was quite good yesterday can considering the rain we today was tough tape and even a C team I mean really actually you know tell me Sarah being one of our talk more cross cross writers for for a long time and and he wasn't even my little boy angus and this is just something nice to really sort of cap off the end of the year it's a podium is something I've been working towards my whole career workplace for the team which was a banker we needed that one Nathan actually went for second gate picking the second reason beat me out the star so I was like what is going on you know I thought the inside ride really quickly you guys weren't even jumping some easy jumps it was it was really tough there was there was some main lines and corners but there was places to pass I'm thirty one years old now and it's it's it's a great achievement to have and to be honest it's it's nice when you're in a gym you want here before in the past how much different I mean I guess it's apples to oranges because of the weather but what was this place like today compared to when you one before I actually liked it and in December and January and it's cold and it's snowing in Scotland where I live the these are the moments you remember and then these are the moments that make you work harder you yourself away away funny like this hasn't been your greatest seasoning a lot of injuries and things funny how that works and then at the end of the year like you guys do something like this it's just weird how that works you're not on Sir flat coming into the moral tracks was really really hard to to make any time you know it's easy to make mistakes and the most important thing we just stay consistent this nation's just really good I didn't realize you finish that high around ten so yeah that's nice job on that yeah for sure I also didn't expect debris came back I ask what place you finish no one really there are no and they said yeah your best season ever but ero- tonight and things come together do you know what I was actually praying that this might actually happen because you know you're only as good as your last eh sharpton thanks for doing this appreciate it nice work congratulations you're in the vacation for sure thanks thanks Dave are Kevin Stri Bosa real good ride yesterday today the clutch was born in I leave her at all Erin the system or something so that was pretty tough felt like writing like a bit of a amateur Ah GonNa work for me but we were six seven or seventy eighth on the first lot actually some clutch problems and pretty much the second half of the race with no clutch at all Dan I do agree with Jeffrey said if we'd been Italy or France or anywhere else in the world and we had this weather at would be it would have been tough we pass on a dino it was different if they're going to build a circuit from brand-new for an event you know make it different every time we come here
Santa Pause, Part 1
"The word of truth so we can worship God in spirit and truth deepening our knowledge of God thereby enabling us to deepen our love welcome to decay where we are studying to show ourselves approved rightly quote unquote Jesus telling us to post reminders of his presence her Jesus is telling us to utilize reminders such as like I wanted to briefly share with you an email that received earlier today actually this is from addy experiences etc as is evident in the heresies of purpose driven slash seeker sensitive slashing merges slash postmodernism and call slash apostate teachings from the Catholic Church One such air being the use of icons images statues to facilitate extra biblical images icons and statues as a former Catholic Born again thirty one years ago in my twenty five year study a false teachings good for you by the way are to put reminders right down things and and stick them up as reminders of his presence you know put them in your I guess on your `fridgerator these instructions as she claims then putting up little post it notes reminders of his presence must be pretty important 'cause not Rosser what people would have done this fines you and yours doing well and I want to thank you very much for joining me I hope you enjoy the series that we did entitled Deficiency Remember that Word Sufficiency of Scripture Oh my goodness how many false doctrines and false theologies several programs ago and talked about how Sarah Young in her book Jesus I think it's Jesus always she says that Jesus told her and before the invention of posted notes but whatever so anyway very good observation but this is very similar to Roman Catholicism and and Addie says she says this she says Justin and various dude observation here she says Justin I believe Sarah Young's reference to her between the the what is being taught in Jesus calling and what you see in the Roman Catholic church and if you boil down all of these all of these okay good for you for studying anyway in my twenty five year study False teachings coming into the professing church recognize the infiltration of heredity hearing from heaven how to know the Voice of God an issue about which of course there's a great deal of confusion and before we get into our next topic supposed- saints and all this all this iconography all these statues around and so very good astute observation there there's a lot of overlap dealing with the issue of Santa Claus and And so I I think you'll see why as we go along you'll see why the office your car wherever so you'll be reminded of his presence and I'm brought up the point well if this is Jesus if this is the second person the Triune God head giving her now and you go into a Roman Catholic Church what you see everywhere you look you see you see icon you see statues you see paintings you see a little uh of scripture if we could just return to this efficiency not just the guarantee that's important but also the zoom what have you they all the fundamental problem is that they all reject the sufficiency so I want us to talk about Santa Claus years ago a number of years ago a pastor told me he said Justin don't ever preach about Alz dear friends whether you're talking about faith charismatic up stock reformation where he told me that Roman Catholicism where the talking about Jehovah's Witnesses Mormons Senate now to do away with any suspense I'm not a fan of Santa I've never cared much for him ever since I learned that he was not real as an adult she signs a fellow Burri in because of Christ addy and at a very very good observation a very good observation if your call difference that is Santa Claus Santa Claus in maybe some of you thinking oh my goodness just seriously Santa Claus but but now I have a I have a great deal of animosity towards or Saint Nick but it wasn't would be instantly cleared up and done away with wow and it all it all comes with a rejection of the sufficiency of scripture that's out this article here in the last week or so because of course getting up close to the Christmas season and so I thought I'd spend a couple of programs or so when you see angels you see Mary you see Jesus you see the baby Jesus you see you know the the disciples and various that's what it all boils down to so thank you very much Adian and thank you for others who have emailed as well and giving me your encouragement several of you have it deserves our attention so as we go forward dear friends I ask that that you would consider the thesis that I present fined for their children just once a year but these are not all my my motorcycle riding not at all but I do think this is something that loan Santa Claus it's been five years ago now hard to believe my goodness time does fly but five years ago and I've received a few emails perspective ahead to wrestle with some of these biblical in implications so I would imagine that probably not everybody listening to that I make and evaluate them not against the family tradition not against common sense maybe not against the culture not against me I was kind of forced to sit down and really take a hard look at Santa Claus in evaluate him from a theological perspective of biblical I his advice I am going to address this icon with which we are all familiar but few really considered to be an issue good old legalist your fair city they really don't know what those words mean so I'm not trying to be illegal est here at all but I want us to for what is edifying to the believer and glorifying God himself can be nothing but his word nothing but his word Jesus prayed remain on that theme in a sense but had very different topic that I want us to address for the next couple of days or so in word so we will begin by examining the history of Santa Claus the history of Santa is not as well documented but if I do over the next couple of days let me know I'd like to if you disagree with me please do let me know if you agree with me please do let me know the Triune God and kind of putting putting it putting our doctrine to our feet in in a sense in in putting it into practice Louis Saint Nicholas who was a fourth century Catholic bishop of Myra Myra is a town in southern Turkey and there was a cult that awardee opinion don't evaluate what I say against your against emotion or by your emotions but rather evaluate what I say grew up around this Bishop Saint Nicholas prior to the Protestant reformation this call to become one of history's most widespread religious movements go after the false teachers and all this and in Santa to Santa Zanu crosshairs. Well Yeah Yeah I guess he is in in I wrote an article that you benefited from this series and so I thank you for that all right well kind of dealing with the sufficiency of scripture we're going to according to the Christian Almanac quote by the height of the Middle Ages Saint Nicholas was probably invoked in prayer more than any other he is truth everything difference it we believe we must we must have those things taken captive by God's elm this Saint Nicholas fellow that he raised three boys from the dead three young boys who had been sadistically murder trying to to kind of get our this'll be good exercise I think in discernment this'll be good exercising using what we know about scripture what we know about the person Saint Nicholas was rumored legend grew up around him that this man Saint Nicholas raised three young boys from the dead who had been murdered now after your except the Virgin Mary and Christ himself in quote now that's that's quite a claim so this this kalt movement that grew up around execution the documentation though of Nicholas Life is very sparse it's it's actually quite sparse little is known of him some fault cared for even less because I just I don't know something about him that didn't sit right with me this was even before I was truly converted on seventeen seventeen sanctify them in the truth referring to his disciples in Bhai extension us as well sanctified them in the truth thy word don't present that you would consider it not with an open mind per se but with with a theological mind all right consider the points the legend in the cult group now despite Islamic advances across southern Turkey which began in the eighth century the Protestant in Santa is is on my radar in it's not to be hypercritical legalistic by the way a lot of people use it to ou including the distribution of gifts to the poor it has claimed that Saint Nicholas delivered a city from famine and also there's this legend many people think the most widely held view is that the legend of Saint Nicholas of the legend of Santa Claus began with Saint Nick's the R. K. L. A. S. O. Center close the legend of a center kloss appear to be fairly dormant in American culture heard in mutilated and unfortunately such a horrific acts such as this is not something modern on they go back really old as human history itself so until the late eighteenth century when new life was breathed into the legend of center clause in Manhattan this man Saint Nicholas was quite extensive and and people invoked him in prayer more so or only second only to the winkle and the legend of sleepy hollow in eighteen zero nine Washington Irving wrote the history of New York in his about five years ago now is that right see six years ago maybe six years ago about six years ago that the program aiming you won't agree with this although I will say probably most of the folks who listen to this program or your or your more doctrinal Eesti children's friend in this poem Sana acquires his flying reindeer so he moves from a flying horse to flying reindeer in eighteen twenty one love to hear from you so anyway not wanting to be a grant and I'm not wanting to ruin what is deemed by most people to be harmless fanciful is version of the legend that came to America via the Dutch Character Center Kloss Okay S. I n. t. any stops on top of chimneys on rooftops in on top in goes down up and down chimneys now just one year later in eighteen twenty two people speculate that this Saint Nicholas may not have even been a real person at all there's some view that that he never even existed at all none the less the legend Dr Clement More Theology Professor at Union seminary undoubtedly inspired by both Washington Irving in the children's free and wrote his own one entitled a visit from Saint Nicholas okay in this porn begins with some words that you might find familiar by the the teachings of the errant sufficient word of gun our standard for what is right for what is true for what is appropriate for what is beneficial urging Mary and Jesus himself so as his colt grew various acts of generosity and miracles were attributed to Saint Nicholas in Lord for the Protestant reformation and so both of the both of these things served to hinder the cult that had Santa Claus you just cannot win when you preach about Santa Claus he said on her bridge about Santa Claus or the Easter bunny you you'll never win and so at the risk of going again much darker origin of Santa Claus some researchers trace the legend of Santa back to the Norse God of Odin Odiaun had comfort and even deliverance from execution for those who are falsely accused of some men who had been falsely accused of murder he supposedly delivered them from there pending nations that kind of put a little bit of a damper on this alleged around Saint Nicholas so but there was a review That sounds Kinda familiar doesn't it in eighteen o nine flying horse not flying reindeer but a flying horse who brought gifts to kids sounds a lot winter clothes became known as Santa Claus and slowly began to be associated with gift giving author Washington reformation swept across northern Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries of course and thank the Lord for that don't say that lightly literally thanks twas the night before Christmas when all through the House okay this this is the poem a visit from Saint Nicholas and it was this serving heard that name of course who lived from seventeen eighty nine to eighteen fifty three Washington irving most famous for his story of Rip van own up around Saint Nicholas which was largely Roman Catholic in nature so you have the advance of Islamism Islamism and then you also have the President Reference Art History of New York he described Saint Nicholas as an old man in dark robes who travelled on a flying horse bringing gifts to children aims his travels up and down chimneys leaving gifts for boys and girls so it was this it was this this poem that really began to Chris Cracker and Nassar he also lived in the northland and guess what th- or head elves to assist him in his work he was said to come written by more which gave us the number of Santa's reindeer eight Santa Eight dollars reindeer along with Rudolf Ming the ninth gave us there an older man long white beard red close that sounds familiar his mode of travel was a chariot they're friendly but he also had a long white beard and he was associated with the element of fire and he generally wore red clothes so here you have thor in Odin road through the sky on a white horse but this horse had eight legs eight reindeer eight legs a white eight get horse now much like Santa Opens home was Valhalla it was in the in the North Country Odin had a long white beard what's his face I don't know I'm very ignorant about Hollywood but anyway some people trae Santa Claus to thor thor generally was represented his death after Saint Nicholas Saint Nicholas's death he supposedly made various visionary appearances to people in distress and need he provided allies are our notion of who Santa Claus is and then there was a political cartoonist named Thomas Nast and he developed Santa further by giving him nicholas a nose probably a little hard to keep all this stuff straight but think thor in his helper black pete dark helper whatever he was it was his like Santa Claus does it well then later I in eighteen twenty one there was another poem published entitled the Children's Friend in the kids was regarded as a chief antagonists for Christ now there's a lot of traditions from Holland from Scandinavia now let that sink in this store read close older man long white beard went up and down chimneys giving gifts for names net group Rick Compass the dark helper black pete it was this guy's responsibility to punish children in even I like to think that that the folks who turned into a program and others that Brandon carries worldview weekend will be your more doctoral students vokes Oh maybe I won't make too many people mad and though Thomas Nast is rightly credited credited for creating the modern image of Santa some argue that Thomas Nast S- inspiration down chimneys and perform benevolent acts for humans so now that really sounds like Senate th or more yeah well opens mission was rewarding good children and punishing the naughty children so that's that's another theory was not Saint Nicholas at all but rather the dark helper images of Saint Nicholas portray a tall owned by two white goats okay in the white goats had a name thors goats were named cracker in Nassar Germany Bosnia according to these the center Kloss Klia as did not travel alone but rather he was accompanied by a home in the North Pole and pictured him in a workshop with busy els now not everyone agrees with this and you're thinking just and he gave us The dark helper was not only dark by nature but he was also dark because he was apparently covered in soot from his travels up and down chimneys responsibility to take punish kids drag them down the hill sometimes he was
Carbon Leafs Guitarist part 2 of 2 (with Carter Gravatt) Ep053
"Welcome back to another episode of the cameras weekly podcast we pull back the bail each piece of music china might even aired subject together with my co host joe mcmurry we talk about everything under the musicians umbrella past episodes of the podcast we've had everything from trademark mastering building acoustic guitars tori music scene public school music fm radio military band since sampling concerts and festivals body guitars figure style music classical guitar recordings mixing set up and maintenance we've had so many things and we played a hit so many more i know we got subtle makers pickup makers tars got a lot if you do enjoy any of this material head on over to any one of the social media and hit that follows follow subscribe button and in addition if you really enjoy the podcast head on over to about the podcast patriotic page in ticket gander as always thank you so much for listening it means the world world to us and without further ado let's jump into part to with carter grab it from the band carbon leaf on was the podcast i'm gonna ask you about that rooms of you're writing style and how that all goes down a i know berry had talked about in a previous episode that he kind of works in these batches where he'll have a you guys send in a bunch of stuff and maybe maybe it may not get used right away or even at all but the play with these i these ideas you as a kind of submitted for sometimes even years 'em but in terms of going through that process of writing 'em how does that go down for you how what is you're writing process and how do you come up with ideas and especially when you have so much material under your belt already with the previous albums do you try to go in a different direction or or how designer work trio man that's a great question on i just kinda i just kind of do a whatever wherever kind of my mind is a just like whatever you instrument or whatever his kind of got my attention at the moment mom unfortunately like a you know like you said a we've got hundreds of unfinished a songs that berry has to choose from i mean oh well a whole lot of material and so what i guess the only the only frustrating thing would would be to not necessarily be too precious about anything you might not ever hear it again right but i just kinda will just right and i'll see you know and i'll just play if you think you know or whatever the song needs are in my mind you know i'll just sit around and in you know you put down the drumbeat and then borrow typically i'll have a song structure in head in in my head and then just start layering things around it and then sometimes that'll come back to bite me up because you know like the this this wasn't you know maybe i'll write something on electric guitar but what berry we will be gravitated towards is you know this banjo thing but i did the supposedly in the background but that'll all of a sudden come to the forefront and that'll be the thing that the melody that he catches and so a tune in the ball like that but yeah just kinda on just kinda just i guess i guess a because we have that backlog i'm trying not to be too forceful about things on an because of a since there is so much stuff a i try not to admit things before i think i think that if if i have the option a before i think they're ready 'cause if you leave if you leave out like if one part of it isn't really like catchy or like doesn't feel you know feel forced in like a pre course something like that if they've just that one part it doesn't quite work the whole tend to get a kick out just because it's like you know it doesn't feel like it's all there yet so if the sell it yeah well i tried of fox wait until at least i feel like all of the things that i can control in it mar you know you know maybe there's maybe this little intro thing isn't quite right yet and i'll just mess around with his sometimes for up to like you know like a year i'll just have this these things it i'll just kinda chip away at and they'll be like oh wait all right that's where i did not know see how that did that to be honest and other stuff at all just kind of you know just kind of throw together because you need be actively you know sometimes you just need to force it three need foresee softer right because if you don't if you don't just push yourself to do it then you know you could you could sit on a little too much so you are are you writing throughout the year i bury it also mentioned that you guys do get together for a color reached a like a week retreat and kind of get together and do stuff so are you bring things to the table or are you guys how what is that process look like that a self were all getting together 'em there'll be things that i will i will hold a little too precious to me and i won't bring those in but i'll try to have a things that have like a few parts for or kind of the general idea for and then you kind of put those out and see you know how the others everybody reacts to it and you know 'cause all at once you put you drumbeat things everything could change a you know a baseline and you know so how a kind of a kind of separate those two things so i'll i'll we have you know a half dozen things that have kind of been my back pocket in case we get together for something that we can you know kind of mess around was on and then they'll also be the thing that i definitely want to pursue on my own just because you know like just like i've seen you sometimes if you force it you you compromise light if you have one good idea in force it into a song all of a sudden you're gonna have three or four parts that are probably not gonna be why would you want and you're gonna have that one part in there that you really liked end now that's kinda stuck in this you know this columbus music but it's kind of like all right is okay but i saved that one thing in kind of flushed it out on my own to see where it would have gone a otherwise and it's fun to do both 'cause i i could i would write really with electric guitar by myself just it's it's just never been it's never music never works that way from me electric car by itself is a little little to strike or something you know like a rocking out in my garage by myself with no like a every now and then i'll come up but like stuff like that will be stuff that i would probably a safer to flush outlets like oh my god how with other guys throughout the year how closely do work with any of these other guys on ideas it really depends every year is different like a like landscape before we have to do a recording was touring wise hersal for tour 'em so it's just a it's it's never it's never the same right of the whole pockets of different things will pop up when they do but like is much like tarian i sitting down with guitars and tried to run something doesn't have nearly as much as it used to because you know i've got two kids he's got three were were home it's like man you know i know it i know all about that aims this afternoon at two yesterday 'em you know i've got yard work and i need to do on state land and my backyard a you know it's just a you know his kids man i swear they're they're so awesome and they're doing like five sports at any given time when we were doing what one you're just like oh my gosh you guys a crushing yeah we'll you know we'd like to soccer games the whole families like but but they still go and they had like probably three soccer games i think they were at ice rink last night for a a skating competition in sub outlook carve outs times when and weaken week and do stuff together but you have to be a little bit more strategic than when you're a kid you just kinda like hey man saying i a drink beer in in right ten yeah which is which is fun to yeah yeah so when you're you really never know how precious oh man you time is this young knitted prejudiced either they won't really know until you oh what is it done what you got joe is a true that will find this is a true yeah but yeah so we try to manage the time we have is is well we can end a you know will get together you would try to get together when we can you know throughout the year a group to do a little bit of writing but with jesse in boston you know we've got fly him down a so that sort of stuff you easier drummer right yeah in a that's also really fun you know when we get a get together like that and just kinda you know we did i think man i think we got it maybe it was last october that we got together for a week and did did some writing and we it might have done it earlier this year i can't remember but yeah how we find some of that stuff if you don't go in with any any real tunes or yeah i'll wake up in the morning have a cup of coffee and come up with a couple of different things before i go in and then will just just kind of see what happens in you could you could end up listen some really neat stuff like that to a you know stuff that you never come up with honor and that's always kind of kind of fun to just kind of let it happen organically pretty much you know sometimes it to be in a normal noodle fast it lasts all day and you're just like man we did not get out of it but we did have a good time but anytime you can play together as a group is it's also good you know 'cause obviously you play jazz and stuff like that so you know improving is something you need to practice you know especially when you're trying to improvise is a group a you know a lot open solo sections live are pretty much improvise so you know just practice listening to everybody kind of everybody's meeting where things were going like that well that's just part of it i think that that it's important even if you don't get the chance to play which you're fellow band members all that off and i think that even taking the amount of time and just allowing for that noodle faster and i kind of feel off each other and kind of get back into that groove as the as the band and how treat each other i that's that's kind of important is incredibly important you know that's that's the part that makes live shows like the most fun having that chemistry where you know really cool stuff and really cool subtle stuff is happening you know whether people notice they're not you know like there's you know the people that are listening to that stuff the stuff you know they stopped listen to empower people better that are you know backup listening to the big picture there's you know there's good stuff to listen to a but yeah you're right it's really important to keep up that you know the cohesion and the chemistry from you know playing in listening in knowing you know whichever way you turn you know everybody's everybody's gonna catch you yeah that's really important for me a just to you know like you like we were talking about jumping from instrument instrument and then okay you know banjo phil mandolin you know last year blah blah blah blah blah blah all right now guitar solo is like you know it's like oh god a all right who let me take it when he catch my breath and let me be creative you're all right a you know so that's that's you know that's where it gets that some of the the tricky stuff too is you know all the jumping around and then all of a sudden all right good series now do something cool yeah everybody's looking at you like well it seems like a big part of this you know when you're improvising live a big part of it is energy flow as a unit as a band end you know most you know if you think of great guitar solos they start out more melodic which seems like that benefits you you know switching it in some you have a little moment to get comfortable before you have to rip any sort of eric johnson licks it yeah speedy do you wanna start out melodic and build yeah but you gotta and in order to start off like that model a melodic has to be in the pocket and so you have to be relaxed 'cause you can be relaxed and melodic if you're feeling frantic in you're you know you're just like you know you gotta so it's almost it's almost easier just a tear into some that say a like honestly but for me that would be the hardest harder to do is to take a deep breath kickback mb malacca musical as opposed to just continue the feed off of that manic energy in just rip into something you it's easier to play fast and it is the place low a cause man there's so much space and you know if you fill it up you know no problem it's it's full if you have to leave it open yet to be strategic you have to be have somewhere to go it's gotta make sense it's gotta feel good you know that's that's the hardest part is you know take a deep breath you know get everything under control now breed now play something music i okay so i have a question in terms of when you are in this moment of playing something musical and because of their background and you are a self taught player and you've kinda come from studying all of these players by ear and i guess my question is is that when you're playing and you're coming up with ideas are you and i don't mean this in any bad way i just i i'm kind of thinking about suffer any of our listeners out there because there are so many instructional videos out there and you could learn from this guy and this guy and take lessons and this guy and i'm trying to think about because your style is very unique and it's very it's very you i don't know how to explain it any more than that so when you are up on stage in your playing 'em are you taking into account any of these other things that people are doing like thinking about any one of their players or is it just surely like you the whole way and i end wits that i guess part b of the question would be are your soul lows are they pre composed or are most of the stuff you're doing stage improv it is a it is pretty much all improv okay i will be cues that i'll play in a few solo to say to let everybody know hey you know were transitioning to this this part now on a per instance a one of the big open which would be layer troubles robots and a there's a like a will get to a point where out like something it will take take us into the british section which we all have the hit together you know but it's it also sets up a like a a ram thrust build up into that chain but that's not saying that that will be particularly the christian dover the solo a it'll just be how we transition out of it yeah but everything up until i hit that would be improv in that could be are you asking where's life the way they are basically john in a in jesse drummer the way they started that could trigger something different you or i could take it in a different direction 'em you know it always kinda start with where they set it up rhythmically and you know sometimes it'll just in the past is just drop dies just in me 'em sheer purely thinking within the moment and you're not necessarily thinking about anybody else in terms of influence fluence is there anything that you're just in the moment and taking inspiration from the players with the band what's going on with in the moment and you're just it's it's in the moment you're you're fingers of doing all the talking man that's that's such a great question and it's so hard say 'cause i need to be in there with a little known and stuff that are running around oh yeah yeah yeah but i i would say anything that comes up it's coming from an influence to be somehow derivative of how the guys it started on you know my hands hurt super clunky right now but like you know every now and they'll they'll drop it into like this a little bit more of a funk thing i would you can you can you hear that is that like super loud it's a but you know they could drop it into something that sounds super funky in in my made me wanna do like you know just something kind of you know funky that would make people nod their head you know that something that would totally spontaneously happened because and i have no idea what when i was just i mean i haven't had enough coffee and have played at today but you know it might is five something like that or it could end up being like a really you know start off a little more gentle with like a and i just don't do who do you turn back time start off with a beautiful lake erie sliding around a lot of like double stop thirds there and stuff it sounds really nice i see that's where music gets me i have no idea a i just know that that's what i'm talking about you're not thinking about any of that you're just you're just playing no i'm just listen i'm i'm making the sounds that i want the here in my head like i know what those things sound like an i couldn't tell you what they were but i know that i think there's a monk tuned it's like not i think that i think that might be ready for it but yeah yeah there's there's chromatic third so you're sliding down but yeah can get more done like hey hey i'm doing an interview which i gotta say hi yes you should come yeah oh this is my daughter so it's a very oh you just sophie sophie play anything she just took a few taking guitar lesson yes all right very good oh yeah sure that's awesome well good luck today yeah i'll see you in a bloody 'em but yeah i it just it so that would be like the best way that i could you know it's just how it start in sometimes how starts deducted stockton trip that's the worst is recovering from like a bad start to be sometimes can be the rubber thing i have suffered second then you know back in but yeah ended just any of those differently and that's just the one the one that one too but you know just however it starts kinda dictate how it might it might unfold but that's all kinda improvise asli you're thinking like the other day it's it seemed like you you knew that you were playing like mix lydian or you do i mean you understand all that yeah so i ended up probably understand more than i'll ever let on just officers on lockton because i don't like you know i've never really really gotten a hold of it that i played a little jazz 'em but it's like you know you know i got no business doing it a but it's still kind of fun but it's one of the things we're talking about it's like if you don't use it you lose it like in playing over like complex cords a in over changes is you know having something interesting to say as opposed like holding on like a cat going outside the building excrete oh that's you know that's that's a whole nother a hold on just saying yeah there's gotta be something something of a handle on on some of that stuff on but i couldn't tell you exactly what does this have anything right like definitely a meteor when you're playing or jazz changes i i find like for a long period at least for me i was having a play it is like you you convince realize the block the a few measures it's you know two five one or a you know you're in one key for a little period period of time and you could play a lick in that key and then you kind of like you start over on the next when you change key they play a new like over that yeah what gets really fun is when you start to be able to play a lick it crosses through that key change yeah that's the end that's that's when you start playing music as opposed the plane shakes yeah yeah you know when people have come out of jazz school in there you know you've got that library of two five one legs that you're kind of string string together it's regions but i wouldn't know changing in the next cord and you can play continue playing the lick you were playing interesting dinner in court and you know here in somebody like you know stern play in you could hear him hitting record this like nine bars away yeah just like you if you know where it's going and you're just like oh you he said over vance he'll like you'll hear him in further records in the cadences even if it's just like at two five and eight minor seventy seven over and over he'll he'll play like a in like in a lick the as that her mind harmonic mine mine hurricanes to get you to they aim minor he does things it's just like amazing over to five yeah i love a man i can't i mean the amount of taxing that guy's done over the years would kill most people but i love he is a he's writing to like he consistently rights i think some of the best heads a like every everything hotel will have like at least one too long i love that i love headed allen there's at a big neighborhood recognize that genie did with a rescue martin woods a check one that's just such a great that's a great had a give and take had some had some great ones on it on one liners and a gosh a second track i think what's really great but anyway the first stern recor somebody gave me the standards no oh dear lord baser it just like mach five say okay danny guys got a great a a version of while you need a wrecker was a a p three player they're so murders quick that's a monkey in right listen to that one but yeah oh so good but i got i got to see a mike cernan new york city over christmas opposite fifty five is iridium oh really in midtown area and he just like it was wonderful and then i got talked him afterwards is like i was so happy he's like the sweetest due to he is incredibly nice just so launches dino a adam rogers no you gotta check him out he is spectacular he's a place of chris hotter a lot on a he's got some his his own solo stuff and he put on a thing it's got a a knee playing drums m i think it's called the ice or something like that but he's either great he's a great guitar player and he's one of the guys a done on i feel like sometimes he could like jazz guys playing anything else you did suggest guy playing something else and like with him o a is a fork the first or fractured f o r q to call wrap that starts at all and he's on that rickard on but he he's he's a great guitar player checked it out and rogers rogers says it's always such a wonderful thing when you like find out about a new guitars through musician in general the year you never heard of any listen you're like like how did i make it the last thirty one years or whatever like just doing this is so it's i feel like it so much better easier now a dumb one went out it's coming out and kind of being in this little you know i've been in this fan since i was eighteen a i mean and i'm coming from a little a teeny little town like an hour and a half from richmond a so finding all of this stuff is pretty hard like burying terry gives me a ton of stuff i never heard like a the first on bowl recor dunkel to below stuff oppose a which got me you know camaro until like the boss he banned in a place in all sorts of cool stuff on but yeah it's all oh man it's all who you know people hipping you just stop that's how you find like the coolest like that accident with buried in a in the bail psych record's you know that was life changing and you know that was the rag reichert is the right time but yeah the finding those those those people you know when you find somebody like that you're just like oh you know that's creatively like the best apple when you just didn't dive in and you got like this wealth of stuff that they put out but you didn't even know there and all of a sudden you have like ten record's to listen to and you're just completely overwhelmed where you know ideas and questions and you know that stuff is yeah that's so great that was a big when i first got in derrick johnson those how i felt like it my entire style is playing changed in i like who is working on it so much that now my natural tendencies are air johnson e oh really it used to be more like this kind of stevie ray vaughan thing which shifted to this kind of i was studying paul gilbert a lot like it keeps changing based on who i get obsessed with it but right now like when i do things i just like spit out pentatonic fives and like mixing with jack i tried it mixing with jazzy things and that's the funny thing so many people have dissected that now on and i never i never did but you've got sound which is why like bringing him up i never thought about five thing a until a somebody told me the checkout a this guy troy grady yeah yeah who hit when i got it is diabetes gone so far down the rabbit hole man i think he's public on the other side i've never had the patience or like a faucet dissect things like that but it's it would certainly like the little stuff but i watch is just fascinating and you know he's so enthusiastic jessica by the whole thing and it's really kind of insects wow but i never thought of it that sort of thing and seeing how he divided things up and i still don't particularly pay attention but i could hear it now in people's playing when people are like dropping in like a run like that i'm like oh they're running that five thing 'cause now that i heard implant now i hear it in a different way than than i heard it more as a cohesive like passages a previously as opposed to like breaking down into into chunks and i don't i don't alternate pick i mean i don't a economy do economy picking which is i think what a lot of that stuff you have to do that diving sweeping i don't know either a leftist and accident on so the way i incorporate that stuff is still i guess if it's sounding that way i'm still playing a straight alternate chicken or i somehow subconsciously a drone in a pull or i'm doing something different with my left hand is posted changing my right hand because i'm probably too old to learn to learn economy taking i did a masterclass jimmy bruno once that was the thing is like well you know that's all fair in good but you know you need to you know and it's like oh i don't think i'm the anything like that yeah that's well yeah did you have so that so interesting so a berry berry came up to me is like when did you when did you when were you influenced by her johnson and you know unit burying you would know it all go come again not normal question eat us yeah it's just so ran out of the blue i don't know but i guess you would ask him their mission that tune in to help get you have any questions about that stuff yeah well i look bazi on how i would have done that but yeah but you gotta to clear up the backstory there when i saw you guys for listeners when i say you guys it 'em in virginia beach you were playing guitar solo an obvious like i heard air johnson in you're playing i think is you know is the spread that route fit in the heights third up an octave sits attend i heard those things i heard do that yeah i heard that stuff and even in you're sooner lean lines are really you're doing like i mean it's it's much easier johnson doing that sound and so i was i was really excited because i love that sound doesn't matter who's doing it it's just beautiful and i ask very about it and he he must have reached out you 'em but yeah so those spread thirds you show me the other day do you wanna a show people that a a soda rhythm stop on yeah we were talking about that and it was a great man it's perry was playing you know just strumming accord and you don't wanna strum you're developing a yes like all right well what do i do the peace doing that a deficit of texas stars a bit on a love also repeat pete in when we were in the studio it was just really atmosphere in a when i wrote a demo a when the guy in the studio producer who produced like russian felt like that was like i like it you don't wanna throw a rock a little more believe it or not and so i came up a couple of spots of flavor so i came up with this no we we something like that which is probably pretty johnson but i've tried to take a melody of us you know super super duper mela dislike a to bring you got other things but that's probably a good job is i've gotten a wrecker but yeah those kind of just kinda terry stroman court you're creating so much texture underneath the simple secord but it yeah move things around a little bit and it kind of creates neater of what neater more neater is a kind of a kind of platform and especially without you know keys or anything else kind of harmonic going on behind it it's kind of you know china find it a different a different way to kind of fill the space and have it be pretty musical and you were just jumping around from different inversions secord there right that's all that's all just see court just a regular regular but you know now it's partially me just figure it out fingerboard on my own is well a moving things around the tree growing up where everything's stack workout yeah love it what'd you say they did that make any sense yeah yeah i mean it it just shows the power of flirting you're very there is no do you now of those beautiful playing but yeah i don't i don't i don't do a lot of tennis tonic stuff we were talking about that and on i think a and some of that might be reactionary 'cause when i was just learning everybody was listening stevie ray vaughan and kind of doing that thing and a you know doing it better than i you know like give roll a what's coming out of virginia beach a or it then got ac in a warehouse in high school years before i had a guitar and so on but you know everybody's doing that now it's kinda like well what's up here and i was also a big peter buck fan so for me like as far as i do like league targeted with a like the insurance driver eight or you know something like that you know what's a yoga you know peter buck moves like the guy from me so it took me a while to get from you know stinking that's you know that's like the nickel the least guitar playing to actually there's quite quite a bit out here in game two doors blown off a when you see what else out there but but yeah so now there's not a ton of pentatonic stuff probably a lot of mix lydian stuff i would imagine as a when it works out i use that flat seven 'em but i guess a little bit a little bit of everything a homeless literally because like i like we were talking about chromatic stuff again not be one i'll just make a fool of myself but i was like no no no no i don't know how to and so i just kind of whatever is just a new kitchen sink so i guess but now not a ton of like straight a straight pentatonic so yeah you could see the mix split in like he's got that pendant major pentatonic box with a flat seven but you're also doing this you're walking stares down dramatically yeah we got a great deal on their own but yeah you'd you'd probably have a better idea of what it is i am it sounds good and another cup of coffee but like i said the other day i you've got a a flow so you're playing that i i like i said the other day to but i like i when i'm playing i i know i can i couldn't pull off and like fast leaks to get me from one place to another and then i tend to like try to milk a spot and like be melodic in a kevin area wherever i happen to land a lotta times but you tend to like you can play a lot like you can stay busy in kind of keep going like it flows well sounds good yeah sounds great yeah yeah i think all fans would agree not sure where where did that really would have come from a plane 'cause you sat around learning by yourselves out around watching like old horror movies angeles noodling yeah but yeah i was telling you a guy that introduced me to a callahan a heat a we were playing in nashville one time and he did this a one chromatic it just kind of linked to different spots where he was on the finger board and that was kind of a was not a thing for me and it opened up a that that probably a combination of that and this guitar player and david career a who isn't acoustic player who i just met and he just thinks he's like a more grasser you gotta listen to play because all the stuff that he gets going on it's like like jokes passer something i mean you're just like there's so much coming at you it's just just kind of mind blowing a if he could take the simplest melody and turn it into the most incredibly complex and cool thing is just remarkable but a learning i think i'm pretty sure it was from him but a linking a different parts of the fingerboard the board which opens strings a why you are you playing the melody on the lower strings and hybrid taking the open be an east rings fingers but also using a lotta open strength so that creates so you got like some some real space between the cheese anted it's a bummer all time just throw it in i don't really have like a specific example i'm trying to figure out what i would be doing that i used it on you just tom cruise ticket taught but i also start using it on electric five percent of that mountain and it kind of works kind of around a long time but yeah just a you know tons of fun of different ways to get a kind of move yourself new reviews up around a little bit and someone in those open strings cannot change things up i'm too lazy to go over and turn off the game that's on their towns to makes a lot more sense the guitars a little bit cleaner on but yeah a dad matic stuffed animals stuff like like when we were more yeah that's cool anybody is listening it's it's worth checking out to video to see what his hands were doing i argue but but yeah a little stuff like that like little things you'll pick up on did you can kind of find ways to incorporate to make things like just work a little bit better and that's i guess some of that stuff helped it kinda art if i'm if i'm here would have what kind of you know say you're you're in a game that you're playing flex soling kind of deep position if you're i guess what they call it the cage system did that but i i see it now when people ask me how do you what do you think they're i guess i guess you could look at it kind of like declared yet once you got in there when no there's a lot of stuff in there you know ditching used but it's certainly got a pitch harmonic leap really compact in a very very small areas so you need to get out of there and spread something out right after before it just goes a lot you know it's like the devil running circle but yeah man i there is a question i wanna ask you earlier that never got to but going back the songwriting idea where the songwriting big big topic but i've in my period is a fulltime musician at their songs that i wrote early on they were like my most they were kind of like what i wanted naturally play and i got those songs out and now when i'm writing i try not to like i don't wanna do that again even though i know i could write another song similar that would probably be better than there the first one i really like that but i just feel like it's too too much of the same idea so i always whenever i sit down to write something i'm trying to write something different which makes it extremely difficult because i'm always trying to look for some you know i wanna put out something that sounds new with you guys writing so many songs over so many years i mean are you trying to create something new or you try to just create the best melody even if it's got kind of similar vibe just something as some other things absolutely that 'em like if you i mean if you do a better version of something that you've already and then you have a better version of something you've already done so you could kind of disregard be original i mean if you do if you start doing that you boxer self in so quickly a with a lack of options day it's just i i would think it would be creatively stifling you know i plagiarized myself more then you know anyone but you know i i i think that would be detrimental to the creative process a just just like starting to have an idea and life whacking it down you know before you've seen it through and you don't know how it's gonna turn out of it and maybe it's you know you end up with a song structure in a you know lyrics anything that are very diverge and an all you have to do is go back and change the guitar art or maybe you could change one chord or whatever but no you should i would i would never never recommend a self editing and that kind of way it's always gonna be i like i'm hypercritical a of myself and i'm my own worst critic but at the same time you gotta balance that with creativity in what you might find pursuing you know never never sideline un idea but 'cause you've you've used these changes before i mean good lord how many saw as they're only twelve no i mean how many songs had been written with a one for a five chord you know millions it's you know it's all probably gonna sound like something at this point but man always always see it through and you know follow up follow every little every little chunk did she get it you know it's in the league somewhere cool and if it does you could book markets later and come back to it but yeah i don't think that that terribly healthy on it's gonna be aware of a an always be aware of what you've done you know okay well that's kind of like this and that kind of like this would never i would i would will be i did just stone wall yourself 'cause you're gonna build yourself really small box racing but anyway that's the way it would seem to me sorry i took it i but do you ever when you're sitting down to write a song do you ever decide like you wanna get away from mix ality and kind of sounds whatever like do you ever try to use something that sounds span you know like ease frisian and you get that spanish sound like try to get like that egyptian sounder i dunno just different you know you listen to guys like just hatchery on any like creating melodies with that sharp for to get that lady in sound in it a lotta times i gravitate towards that because i feel like there's something i could find a melody there as of yet the cruelest on a purely instrumental music or music that's going into a more songwriter both but i have this dream of writing like a really good vocal melody in lydian in just haven't found it yet but i'm working on it yeah i don't you know i don't i don't think i'd probably gone out too far on the sour notes on i i think the thing said i do get a probably a little quirky here's a tender a right now these across the bar 'em which is a a bit frustrating for a the guys in the band sometimes a but that would be i think probably more a like eclectic a way that i would take things as far as instead of using like a you know really tense notes alternative right a a melody simple black run across like if you're listening to the melody it in time but if you try to play drums within or you start to trump play the song like what what's what's going on but yeah i don't i don't think so and i might only be because i dumped into right with a overly heavy court voicing on because i think that a direct bury a little too hard methodically so i try to do too much leading like that in these guys with only a now but i think a lot of times he prefers a having like no melodic guitar stuff or you know depending you know like an old time fiddle tune obviously this could be film and stuff like that on it like together stuff on but like the have like a more of a clean power to work from as opposed to having like like a lot of creative guitar stuff going on behind it which very much influences which way is more he thinks his melody then you can go in and put it in the melody i'll put it in stuff after a that's that's that's a lot trickier than a like writing stuff a a where i could just kind of you know put in all the cool little ideas that i think i want in there or just it's more just is riding funds being let out i don't think so and i'm trying to think if i've even ever really much of a like a flat seven or anything i think i think most things and i would do a logical radically you're pretty pretty simple like even like a like a tune scott cycle alcatraz sanchez like a on the fox you know putting stuff like that that'll still within the you the basic harmonic structural all the court that it would be sitting over on being really jumping like that octave yeah a that's a bad such a cool even though you're lying to a i guess what do you what do you guys call a second night in a let's see so i i eat eleven so a dude in the country been little trickier so that's a but you gotta do that like a thousand times massage he's got like three beers you like please please please sign of sound better when you really doing it too so there you go you go too far knowing who you guys drink much while you play that really were pretty lame well let's see i mean there's the you know sometimes it helps you gel with the crowd at least me but yeah they quickly turns into sloppiness well yeah it's like running that line i'm i've probably drinking most anybody and you know i it might have a couple of like light beers before the show but you know enough to give me enough you know courage to get on stage and go okay why all these things and get it done a but yeah not not you know every now and then things get a little carried away terry terry prefers when i when i drink heavily because that's like chicken the restrictor plate off the red dragon get a license slicing those now john and stuff you get a little bit more you give her things that maybe going for so and a yeah well you have a few drinks and you kind of stop judging it everything that you do while you're doing you know that's a lot to do come up with a stop light in judge old kick herself a mighty job but yeah so not not like you know overshot but it's okay this is this is been wonderful i've had a blast i think you've been incredibly yeah and they have on the show you get a great sense of humor there yes
Accept, Approve, and Appreciate Others
"Welcome to the talk like a leader. podcast where we explore the mindset skill set and habits of leadership communication using these tips techniques and tactics. You'll be able able to talk like a leader to build better relationships and get more done. Your host is guy. Harris who has more than twenty years of combined. Professional Military Experience in in consulting coaching and training in areas like team in interaction dynamics communication strategies and tactics as well as emotional intelligence take it away guy guy. Hi this is guy. Harris will come to talk leader. PODCAST and this episode. We're GONNA talk about a general principle of interacting with people and the principal is this except upped approve and appreciate. I'm borrowing these three words that I think are very good words for people who want to learn how to talk like a leader if we look at talking like leaders. There's a general concept of learning how to work with and interact with other people more successfully and a broad range of circumstances. I'm getting this idea from a book. That's actually not new. It was published in nineteen fifty six. The title of the book is how to have confidence in power in dealing with people by Les Gelb. One and one of the things I like to do is not only only read new ideas and new books. I also like to go back and revisit older books older ideas ideas that have been around for awhile. I one of the things I find find is that the principles of working with people really haven't changed over time. The style of writing can change the examples people use to make their points can maybe be relevant or not relevant in the current world and still the underlying ideas are really powerful. So I'm reading this book. How to have confidence and power and dealing with people folded? I've read a number of times probably three or four times in the twenty five plus years I've spent reading personal professional leadership ship development books and the idea of accepting approving an appreciating. People really struck me very strongly as I was going over over that chapter in this book recently and so I thought I'd share the thoughts. I have around this idea in this podcast episode. I'll offer the idea that every idea That I share on this podcast really. Every I'll use US in quotation marks rule of working with people frankly has limits when it comes to interacting with people. And what I'm GONNA an offer here is no different. Virtually everything I talk about in this podcast has some limit to its applicability. There will always be some exception to the rule. There will always always be a situation that people can come up with and say well. What about this situation? That rule doesn't apply. And I would say you're probably right. The idea doesn't apply in that situation and the fact that we can find exceptions to the rule for rules of working with people doesn't change the idea that the underlying concepts are really powerful full in the majority of situations that we face and working with others. So I'll start with the idea that accept a proven appreciate has its limits is just a really really good general principle to operate by. Let's take a look at what it means to accept approve and appreciate another person what it means from a leadership perspective from talking like leader her all of these words are verbs meaning their actions. We do with regard to other people and I will say that behind. Every action is a mindset or a thought or intention that we have to get in the right vein. Let's look at each of these words individually and see what they tell us about how we can better talk Klecko leader except it's verb that one of the definitions is to believe or to recognize an opinion Rick's explanation other person offers as valid or correct. And I'M GONNA borrow that. Particular definition of the word accept and talk about what what I mean by accepting other person. I believe that the person is valid or correct. That doesn't mean I accept every idea. They offer as outer correct. I can disagree with another person and still accept them as a person and accepting as a person is the the idea of trying to get to. Here's accepting the person with all their faults and failures frailties. You know I've been married for thirty plus years now going on thirty one years and even today my wife and I do not agree on everything and yet we can accept each other in this relationship and stay together and see value in the relationship. And that's the idea of accepting that I'm trying to get to not that we have to agree on every little idea to accept the person I can accept them as a person which leads to approving of them as a person to approve that they're person hood is acceptable even if there are parts of their opinions with which I disagree and then I can learn and to appreciate them and appreciate means to recognize the full worth or to bring value to a stock or an investment appreciates. It's in value so it grow value or recognize the full worth of the person. Appreciating person means. I'm bringing value to the relationship by accepting being an approving of them as people so I appreciate them and value what they bring to our relationship and what we can do together in our business or organization whatever whatever it is. We're trying to accomplish together in my leadership role so except approve and appreciate three really powerful verbs that we can bring to the table bowl in our effort to talk like a leader is I indicated. That doesn't mean that I agree with the person in every way a friend of mine. Jj Brune who is a fantastic ask speaker and trainer in. Canada gave me this phrase. He said Guy Remember that people are a package deal. meaning that if I want to have the good parts the relationship or the interaction with this person in my life I have to be prepared to accept the bad parts. That doesn't like the bad parts or the places where we disagree or the the places where our personalities rub against each other negatively. It doesn't mean that I have to completely agree with every single thing. The person says or does release it. Does that mean that on the whole I can accept approve and appreciate them as a human being so that mindset is in a good place towards them so that when we do run into the places where we disagree over some concept or course of action or something that needs to be done to improve our operational organization. We can and find a way to disagree without being disagreeable if I accept approve and appreciate the other person as a person it allows me to look past the places places where we don't completely align our perspectives or how we should proceed. We can work out the differences that we are invariably going. Join to run into when we work with other people we can find a way to find common ground to look for the places where we do agree and use those as building blocks to work together more successfully rather than focus on the areas where we don't agree and allow them to drive us apart. If I accept approve and appreciate another another person I can recognize that they do bring something of value and some valid perspective for consideration so that we can merge jar ideas for a better collaborative solution to whatever problem we face so we can find a way to continue working together in the future rather than blow in the relationship. Apart on a single disagreement over particular perspective or approach to problem. We accept approve and appreciate other people that shows up and our mindset towards them. They will know that we think positively towards them even when we disagree with a particular action or perspective so that we can continue to build the relationship hip solution work on the people side of leadership rather than just the task side and if we focus on the people side or the relationship side of leadership. It's often true and even this rule has limits. Of course it is often true or mostly true that we can get our relationship out of the way in the interest of getting things done when we can build a productive leadership relationship by accepting approving and appreciating our team members by feeding their ego by feeding the relationship rather than detracting. From or withdrawing from the relationship. We'll get more done. We'll do it with less. Stress will do lift less conflict. So if you'll learn to accept approve and appreciate others your team
Comparing Medicare Supplement to Medicare Advantage
"How would you really like to understand the difference between a Medicare Advantage program at a Medicare supplement program? Whether you're new to Medicare for the first time or curly looking at open enrollment or thinking about switching this particular podcast is exactly for you. Welcome to another episode of your medical benefits, presented by Tracy mcmanamon, president of one source benefits with twenty nine years of experience in Medicare. Tracey takes the confusion out of how Medicare works and shows how to make it work for you. I especially love when customers commit to my office or prospects. And they bring in a box of pamphlets, folders, whatever from all the different insurance companies are trying to solicit their business. And they say helped me understand this. I don't get it to get information from the federal government. You get information from all these insurance companies get information from a ton of agents, and they just drop it on my desk. And they say, I don't get it. What's the difference between the advantage program in the supplement program? Well, we're going to cover that. But I also have some tools and some items that I'm going to give away to you. If you go into this show notes, you'll see link that you'll be able to download the information printed off at home and be able to have this handy or simply call me, and I'll be glad to go through this in great detail with you. But there several different distinct advantages that you should know about when you're evaluating whether an advantage. Program or a supplement program is the right program for you or someone that you cared deeply about now the advantage program it it's all over the that. There are plans that are free as they say on TV or zero premium is really the term that we're supposed to use not free but zero premium. That includes some include dental vision, drug son include hearing, certainly the medical portion of it. Some of them are HMO some of our PPO's. Okay. I'll stop there. I lost you already probably some have a premium associated with it and some do not which ones right for you. Is my doctor in the network. What if I'm traveling what if I go to visit my grandchildren? Am I going to be covered? What if I get in an accident? What if I go on a cruise ship or go out of the country is Medicare going to cover me? Well, these are all the questions that you should know about and be able to have someone that you can trust that you can call opera text, which is how I get most of my questions. People text me their questions about Medicare. And I just respond to them. About what the right type of plan is for them the supplement program the same thing. Now, the up program is medical only does will it cover all of the out of pocket expenses of Medicare. That is not covered. The answer's yes. Some will some won't. What's the premiums? Am I going to be underwritten? You know, these are all questions that have to be discussed with someone. And I just encourage you, whatever you do don't put your phone number and your Email address onto a website all those places or call centers or carriers, which is a call center. And all they wanna do is sell you a Medicare policy, and that's it two days from now, you have a question you wanted to talk to the same person that you talk to today's earlier guess what we don't know where they are. I don't know how to reach them. I can't transfer you. How can I help you gotta start over and over and over again, and it just becomes a nightmare. So there are. Are some very very distinct disadvantaged disadvantages to the advantage program. And or the supper program, there are some advantages that are very very important to you that you understand on both programs. What about Medicare Part d her all about drugs? How do I get my drug card? Some plans include them and some do not. So it's really important. And I really encourage you to call and talk to someone that you feel that you can trust. Because you know, what your situation is totally different than your next door neighbors or the person across the street, and you can't just go to a website or talk to some call center person in whatever part of America or outside of the United States that wants to do nothing, but sell you a policy move onto the next call. This is too important folks understand the difference. Finding out what plan is best for you, a true professional will listen to your needs. And then make a recommendation to you and. Then if they're really good they'll help you enroll, and that's exactly what I do. And I've been doing it for thirty one years. Most of my business is referral business. You won't find a quoting tool on my website that you can run your own quotes. Because frankly, if you're just looking to run quotes there are other opportunities for you to do that. But I like to be here before during and after you purchase your Medicare. So if you have questions comments, you don't understand you're confused. You've got a medical Bill. You didn't think you're going to get you can call me. We'll talk about it in a more than likely help you with so two ways to reach me. One is is by simply picking up the phone calling me one eight seven seven five four nine one two one two again, the phone number is eight seven seven five four nine twelve twelve. And you know, what I'm gonna let you even text them. If you want because I get a lot of text messages, and they're very easy for me to respond to my cell phone is nine one nine.

152: 15 Min Fill Up: Mortality Series: How To Talk About Death
"Hello and welcome to the hearts unleash podcast I have been loving the opportunity to serve you serve your heart's in this very specific way and. we are in. Interesting time in the world in our lives in the. Of Humanity and talking about death is talking about life, and so it's such an important thing because it i. we will be faced with this every day every month every year, and the more empowered we are around the conversation the better off. We are around the conversation around the concept of life as well and so I wanNA talk about this. This in terms of how to talk, you know for some reason. My commitment behind this episode is how to talk to kids about death, and you know loved ones. We obviously you know. Our adult friends and family also need that kind of support the ability to talk about death, but for some reason What's on my mind and heart is talking about. The next generation of children who are watching so much destruction occur while we go through what I personally kind of you as puberty stage for us in in humanity, and so there's a lot of death. There's a lot of endings. There's a lot of confusion. There's a lot of things that don't make sense and so this. This episode and these tips I'm about to give you are centered around how to talk about death, but it's you could use these for having conversation around any tough topics, including racism or just things that don't make sense. My mind is wrapped around racism right now, but death endings endings when Mommy or daddy loses their job or a friend moves away in school. We know that kids are impacted by some minor things. As far as like the their normalcy, changing right, and we have normalcy changing, and we're losing routines were losing things that are predictable, and this is happening for us as adults, and it's happening for our children, and our children are going to have a different brand of trauma that they'll be healing with kids that will be in therapy in a decade are going to have quite a lot to talk about, and you know this includes divorce as well so like why you know relationships end and so. Again the mortality series is about to refer that it's about death, but it really is about. How can we live beyond death and endings, and so I wanNA. Give the first tip about how to talk about death is don't. Don't talk. And I'm being a little bit facetious in that tip is. Don't talk, listen. A must listen. because. I think that we get so hetty about how to do it right. We're so in our head about how to talk about a difficult topic that and we're so in her head about it and we. What's right? What's wrong? How should I do this? We try to strategize. When really were completely out of our soul of our heart space, so we don't actually communicate what we want to communicate effectively, because we're too busy trained to do it right, and maybe not effort up, and so instead of talk listen. And so the immediate next tip is to ask. Ask the person so when when in terms of listening you need to actually check in with the person you're talking to They're gonNA. Tell you their age appropriate needs, and so they might have questions, and you might not have all the answers I think that that's why we get so. Consumed with talking about it, and doing it right, and having all the answers, because we're afraid of looking bad or like we don't know and it's okay to not know it is okay to be very confused, and it's okay to admit it you know one thing I'd like to kind of interject here. With is a story from my own childhood. I was a big sister I was the oldest of to about seventeen months older than my sister emily and came home. My mom came home from a really long day at work, and we had kind of left the house of mass. I remember her coming home and being very angry like. Abigail you're supposed to you know you're the big sister. You should've. Shouldn't be this way gone all dated at a? And it it took me by surprise. I was like upset that I had upset my mom, and that she had counted on me to keep a clean home, or at least not have our toys everywhere, and whatever else was going on. And maybe we didn't throw are put our dinners away. Blah Blah Blah. And I remember going to bed. Deeply affected at the idea of disappointing, my mom and she came in. Before he fell asleep. She came into my room that night and she's like you know what. I am so sorry. I had a bad day and I took it out on. You and I'm sorry. And I'm here now thirty one years old, still telling that story, because it made such a difference to me for my mom, who I looked up to and an authority figure in my life and adult to say I took a misstep I was wrong, and I'm sorry and I love you. Clean that mess up. It it's been so. Important in my life that she did that that one time. And when we're talking to our children or we're talking to our appears, it is okay to say. I I don't know. I'm scared to I'm confused, too. I'm sad to I spoke out of anger and I'm sorry. and. When, we stop with the facade 'cause. We have to recognize that somewhere in your life, you. Either realized or you learn, for yourself. that. It's not okay to be vulnerable, and it's not okay to not know what you're talking about. And the truth of it is my truth of it is that it is okay. Because we are human, and we don't grow ourselves the grace to be human, and to also be affected by death, or also be affected by trauma and endings, and that's happening a lot right now, and it's okay to not know in. It's okay to be incredibly confused. Sometimes I don't know which way is upright, left down and do however said that but. It is. Really confusing and it can be really disheartening, but the best thing you can be as. and Bone rable and real, because that's going to teach a kid or a loved one how to cope more than putting on a smiley face, and pretending like it's all gonna be alright or You know whatever we pretend we would ever. We like to pretend about knowing that. You're better like you can admit. You're not okay. Is GonNA teach someone to? Be Willing to admit when they're not doing okay, and that allows us to meet them where they are, and have them meet their needs or help them meet their needs, so don't talk listen. The next tip is to ask, and whether that person can articulate their needs. That's that's always great for like an older child or Honestly sometimes even adults also, and what do you need and they're like I? Don't know because we've never really been asked that. So if you get people to start to look within and explore their heart and say I need. Shit I need a hug. I need I need to vent I. Don't actually need any answers or a do need answers I need to understand I don't understand, they will be able to communicate their needs especially, if you take it upon yourself to help that person, explore without looking for all the answers, but simply looking for the need 'cause. If you can identify the need, then you can identify what a an effective solution might be or what the next inspired action might be and guys. I'm talking to you about how to talk about death with someone else, but consider these tips for yourself don't. Talk. Listen. Listen within. And then ask what do I need? What are my needs? How can I cope with this? And then another powerful than note the third tip and strategy is to reflect so this is something. That I wanted to add. Or explain is to listen and add nothing. To listen to a person and add nothing. Meaning you don't add in any solution, you don't add any assumption or diagnosis or prescription, you just listen and add nothing and to reflect somebody. would go like hey, Johnny, how you doing. I'm really sad. And I don't understand what's going on and I. Don't understand why so and so died. It hurts. And I'm angry. And you could simply reflect. I understand that you're sad. I understand that you're confused that so and so died. I understand that you're angry. And I'm sorry. To literally reflect what they said. To show that you're listening. Will heal so much for them. To be for someone to feel seen and heard and loved and understood. And Gotten. Will help them heal. You don't actually have to have answers. You want you to be with them and often times that will help heal, because we can't always make sense out of death, and we certainly can't bring that person back, and so the best thing that we can learn to do is accept, and he'll and move on and move forward, and that actually takes me into my next step, which is to recreate recreate. Recreate the relationship to death, which is a lot of what we've been talking about. In this mortality series, so I highly suggest that. If this is the first episode you're coming to please, be sure to check into the rest of the episodes and this last tip to recreate is to honor death and honor the person who died or honor the ending and. Also eleven thirty six, and I'm reading to you guys right now. Talking to you guys right now about this hand. It's been a long day. you guys I just want to pause because I can feel the weight of the world, and the frequency of humanity is so tense right now that you an if you're an path, even if you're even if you don't identifies an M. Path. It's very likely that you're feeling impacted. I do my best not to. Insert current events into my episodes that so that their evergreen and can be shared years from now but. you know I'm recording this mortality series, both before and after the death of George Floyd and during the rioting and the protesting and in all of this phase that we're going through. And so just really feeling it and really wanting to come to you that I. Sometimes I'm not doing all right and I make sure to be supported I. Make sure to plug into my coach and my coach groups and the support systems that I have and and checking in with family, and that's why I'm so compelled to extend the mortality series, because it actually was set to end last week, and so just wanting to come to you about the ways that we can. Honor this shift and honor all of this turmoil because I as a coach that. In transformation, a breakdown is is never wasted, it is never futile. It is an opportunity to grieve. To release. To shed. To let go, and that's exactly what we're doing. And that's exactly what death is, and that's why I wanNA talk to you about how to talk about death, and then the recreation phase is kind of the springtime phase of all of this. It's the springtime phase of grief where we can. Kind of dryer is an picker, heads up and look back to the horizon and say. How am I going to move forward with this? Still on my heart, still a memory and a part of my past, but also walk forward. Forward powerfully committed to making a shift committed to honoring the dead or honoring the memory and legacy of someone who's passed and so when you're talking to someone else about coping, and you're supporting someone else through that grief process especially children. He want to be on purpose about recreating it okay. How can we honor? Them might might be making a donation. Somewhere might be planting flowers, or like some type of memorandum, something, ceremonious or You know it's kind of interesting, because sometimes people are driven into their careers. In, on her of the death of a loved one, it's quite phenomenal. What death does to us? You know it's important that everybody continue to unleash their own heart, and that's why being able to grieve and process and release. takes it honors the death, but it also takes the weight of that death off of us such that we can still meet ourselves for the purpose that we came to this planet. Planet so that we may identify our own gifts and unleash that and deliver them to the world, and so I encourage you to be able to digest in process, death, and endings and tragedy and trauma so much that you are able to show up in the world again and again and again, and the more that you do this in practice it, the more you can do it with and for others. Others and so I encourage you to listen whenever you need to. This is this is an episode about death is the series is about death, and it will empower you anytime. You face it, and it's directly impacting you, so I love you so so much. Please share this episode with someone that would be impacted by it. Please continue to support our healing and transformation.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt wants to hear your questions about creativity...
"Hello everybody so welcome to the creative processing podcast my name's Joseph Gordon Levitt. I'm I'm really excited to be doing this. I've always wanted to start a podcast and now I've finally am. I have headphones on talking walking into this microphone. This is like shit they use on M._p._R.. Feel I feel important and sophisticated. <hes> thought I'd start out with the thought <hes> I once had the very fortunate opportunity to work with the after Daniel day-lewis on the movie Lincoln he was playing Abraham Lincoln outlining his son and Daniels extremely dreamily lovely and warm and respectful and just I loved working with them but he's not very social while shooting so I never really had the chance to sit down and have a conversation with him while we were working but when we finished he made a point of saying let's sit down have lunch some time and I was delighted and certainly happy to oblige so he came over to the apartment I was staying in I ordered in Indian food and we had curry and we talked about life and family and all kinds of things we hadn't really talked much about acting and then when the conversation started heading in that direction he said something really stood out to me me <hes> which was we shouldn't even be talking about this and he said it with a smile on his face. He wasn't grimmer anything but I think I understand why he didn't want to talk too much. About acting because once you've talked about something it can sit in your head differently than if you haven't talked about it. I think <hes> acting has a lot to do with momentum. If you will kind of emotional momentum and this is something everyone really experiences I think like you can wake up in a good mood and then you'll have some kind of positive emotional momentum and you might experience variance everything a little more positively that day and it's not entirely in your control. It's just it's your mood. It's it's it's your emotional momentum and same thing. If you wake up in a bad mood you might have some kind of negative emotional momentum and acting in my experiences. France's is a little bit like that you you can't just totally control your emotions. When they roll the camera you have to kind of just try to nudge your momentum so that when the cameras rolling you react effortlessly okay and naturally to whatever's happening and the momentum is already kind of carrying you in the right direction and so I think having too much of an explicit conversation about acting can really affect the way that that that momentum kind of carries you into a day because <hes> like I said once you've had conversation about something once you've articulated certain experiences of processes it changes them so I think that's why Daniel was saying well? We shouldn't even be talking about this. <hes> and I and I should say he did actually indulge me and we did have a wonderful conversation about how to go about acting and I'm actually not GonNa really relate to much of it here because I don't think he really <hes> would like that and I bring it up today <hes> because it makes me think about you know what it is to talk about the creative process. Yes because that's what I WANNA do. On this podcast. I'm calling it creative processing because I want to have conversations about the creative process and while on the one hand I think that it makes perfect sense. Why Daniels hesitant talk too much about acting in my personal experience I've had so many enriching and inspiring and just fawn or funny he conversations about all kinds of different creative processes not just about acting and I love talking about that's tough and so on this podcast? I don't want to do just the normal interview. Show where you know you can just hear various interesting people talk about their thoughts or their new book or movie or whatever I I wanNA focus this show more narrowly on the creative process and so the way I want to do it is a WanNa start each episode with the question and won't that question to come from you all out there listening <hes> anybody who wants to ask me a question about the creative the process and on each episode just do a deep dive into trying to answer that question and so all probably start off by offering up my own perspective on the question and then I wanna find a guest and have guests on the show and I have the guest answer the question from their perspective and I'll find all kinds of people <hes> some of them might be known artists but some of them might be less known artists or some of them might be really accomplished artists but you might not know their name mm-hmm because production designers or agents or whatever they don't get the same name recognition as actors directors or musicians and yes. I did just call agents artists and <hes> I'll stand sir. I will so ask me a question. You could ask me any kind of question. Make it specific to you and your life in your situation. <hes> what are some examples of questions say you know you you wanNA write a movie but. You don't know how to get started. That's that's a fascinating question and you know we talk for an hour about that. My first piece of advice of course would be don't start out by writing a full length feature films start out by writing a one minute short film. Maybe you're collaborating with somebody else on project. You're in a band or or you're working with someone else on anything and <hes> and you have questions about the sort of interpersonal dynamics of that collaborative process because there's there's a lot to how to how to relate to another person when your co creating how how to be respectful how to be positive how to be constructively critical etc all those things are really fascinating to me and then of course people oftentimes have questions for me about the industry <hes> WANNA know. How do I break into the industry etc look? I'm happy to talk about what I know about the entertainment industry. I've been working in that industry for <hes> well thirty one years now mould started young but I'm old but I would just add that. I I will not claim that I have the knowledge. That's going to help you break into the industry. I don't think it really works like that so simply and also I would frankly questioned that as a goal I think sometimes there's a lot of focus put on the industry when that's not necessarily what's going to make a creative person happy. That's complicated so I'd I'd love to any questions about that happy to dive into it so yes. If you want to ask a question you find me anywhere on the Internet on twitter <hes> at hit record joe on instagram. I'm also hit before Joe on facebook I am I think I'm just Joseph Gordon Levitt Yeah and I think that's about it. Oh subscribe subscribed to to hear the new episodes.

'Valentine's Views' podcast: Giants trade rumors, and a Lions-Giants preview
"Are you troubled by strange hockey trades in the middle of the night do you experienced feelings of dread about free agency have you or your family ever seen in your rheinlander scheme if the answer is yes don't wait another minute pick up your mobile device and subscribe to Lighthouse Hockey podcasts from espy nation today are courteous and efficient host with a rookie quarterback with lots of young defenders already playing you have youngsters like Sam bill corner hello giants fans and welcome to A. Friday edition of the Valentine's US podcast here on big especially when you look at the personnel that the giants have in the secondary you still have to and five team that is pointed toward the future line that deadline is next Tuesday October twenty ninth four pm Eastern Time Lots and lots of rumors in an effort to to perhaps pick up some some draft capital for the two thousand twenty maybe even did with Jeremy Rice men of SP nation's pride of Detroit as we preview Sunday's game between your New York giants so that their seasons don't spiral out of control and we'll talk to Jeremy about about the Lions about the similarities between the giants and Detroit and the Detroit lions a match up of two teams that have lost three consecutive games both teams badly need of of a victory interview and we'll get to that in just a few minutes I though I thought we should take some time to discuss the upcoming NFL trade dead eight about some of the former players from the giants who are on the Detroit roster currently that is a fairly entertaining floating around out there about what the giants might do about players the giants might Might be interested or looking to looking to deal so reliant on the pass so I still believe that Jenkins is the most likely giant to be moved traded away from the giants by Tuesday's deadline is cornerback Janoris Jenkins and despite all of the rumors that we've heard this week radio I'm your host Ed Valentine of Big Blue View today's show we're going to do a couple of things in a little while we will play an interview you turn your attention to building for the future and there are rumors out there about several giants players I did a piece I still believe that to be the case we've seen a couple of cornerbacks move already as the deadline approaches teams around the two thousand twenty one draft this is what happens with teams that that don't win in the first half of the season you know the is overpaid the giants had to you know two years ago had to make some sort of a move in free agency to upgrade have Corey Ballantyne sixth round pick who really has not had an opportunity yet you still have Julian love who has who hasn't really played any early this week at big blue view on the giants trade possibilities in net piece I stated that I thought the most likely player to be nate solder remains you know a pretty much adequate average left tackle he's he's had a little bit of a rough ghost uh-huh the NFL are all looking to upgrade their pass coverage they're all looking for that extra corner to help them you know in in a league that he signed in that particular scenario or circumstance is left tackle nate's older now listen I understand that nate solder it's not a great you know number one shutdown corner but still a good dependable player a guy who could be a help things to keep in mind is just because you may hear a player's name you may hear that a certain team is interested in situations but as mark looked at those found a couple of sacks that you could blame on Saquon Barkley found a couple of sacks you can blame on Daniel Jones player doesn't necessarily mean that the giants are actually interested in moving that player and the one that comes to mind back who's been on I r for the first half of the season is going to be eligible to come back off of I r week nine verses the Dallas Cowboys to find out what they have in those players ginormous Jenkins I believe is thirty one years old doesn't have a long term future with the giant offensive line they overpaid to get sold or simply because that was that was the market price that's what you have to do in free agency so far this year I think he's been charged with five sacks he still a player that some teams would like to have he still being interested does not mean that the giants are shopping nate's older or trying to trade nate's older now they might you never know oh I mean Cleveland might make them an offer that the giants think is too good to pass up but the question has been asked a number of times if the giant to a good football team looking to make a playoff run so I look for for Jenkins to be the most likely of any the giants to be moved so so let's let's talk about some of the other players some of the other names that you've heard and and one of the interesting is absolutely correct but when it comes to nate soldier the problem that the giants have is who would play left tackle at left tackle they don't have anyone else Mike remers the right tackle I believe has played a little bit of left tackle but remers is not a good is nick gates has never played left tackle in the NFL he was a left tackle at Nebraska who went undrafted with the reasoning that he option at at left tackle he's he he's a guy better suited to the right side has has enough of has enough issues of his own long term but Julian Lov fourth round pick at the giants were excited to to be able to get in the draft is another you know because of his ankle surgery in the off season and had some other injuries that they were dealing with gates is a guy that defense I'm not sure if the giants look at him at this point as a as a slot corner as a safety I'm not exactly sure what role they see for him on the right side without moving to the other side in terms of back-up players the giants have Nick Gates is a guy who's probably there on four of CBS sports was the first one to mention that the Cleveland browns were interested in Nate's older and again the browns played guarding Houston was used a little bit at right and left tackle in the pre season just to see if he could handle that job in an emergency would protect Daniel Jones for the remainder of the two thousand nineteen season the giants have no other real alternative you're a little bit unfair to simply say soldier has been terrible the offensive line has been terrible because neither one of those things is a player who hasn't had an opportunity see you look at that situation in heading into the two thousand and twenty draft it would really be who've the giants it was a player who needed to be moved inside to guard when the giants brought him in in two thousand eighteen they moved him to guard he only played some primary offensive line backup looked at as as what's called a five hole player a guy that can play anywhere across the line of scrimmage but the reality of it if those players so as disappointed as disenchanted as you might be with nate solder especially considering his contract he waivers from the New York jets guy who is a tackle but another player who's been inactive all season in a guy who's never actually fine but but you don't trade him you know just to just to accumulate a day three pick just to get rid of the money you re himself for holding the ball too long not getting rid of it couple of sacks that you blame money offensive line mark even found one that that he blamed on head coach Pat yes they gave up eight sacks you know last week against the Arizona Cardinals Mark Scofield had took a deep dive into those sacks consider the alternatives and I think that the giants have to do the same before they consider trading solar if the offer is too good to pass up Shurmur simply for the play call for the design of a of a particular play a in the situation in which the giants ran it so perhaps has been inactive for most of the games this year maybe maybe all of the giants games this year I'd have to look that up to one hundred percent certain but slaves a guy who reach in and you knew pretty much that the giants were going to throw in desperate situations and offensive line's historically pretty much have no chance in those for Evan Ingram now that doesn't mean it'll happen I think that there would have to be a pretty significant price paid tackle during the preseason when injuries struck some of the guys in the giants didn't obviously had nate solder out starting out there and playing a full game where the snaps if you can absolutely help it Chad slade is the same way slade was a guard with the Houston Texans I don't want blocking in in a lot of situations it would surprise me a little bit if the giants did move ingram it's but is that the giants right now have to be all about the development of Daniel Jones they have to be about protecting him the best they can we have to consider the long-term development the safety of Daniel Jones before you do that couple of other names that have been mentioned blue they acquired on waivers earlier in the season Garrett Dickerson who's on the practice squad perhaps getting more snaps so that's one to monitor in trade rumors the most interesting one to me is tight end Evan Ingram when I first saw couple of a couple of reporters application the skill set of sterling shepherd I mean there's concerns right now about shepherd you know coming back from his second concussion he's almost certainly going seems to annually have injury issues then perhaps you do move him and see what you have in younger guys like like cadence Smith who they who've anger my was told in fact the the the the words I was given were that there are several teams in quote heavy talks with the giants believe a pretty much middle of the road left tackle in the NFL and you know we have heard reports we've seen reports I believe Jason Locker in the name Ingram as a possibility in trade rumors on I was a little bit surprised by that but since that time I've actually been able to confirm for us the reality of it is a couple of those sacks are on the offensive line a coupla those sacks happened in the final minute when you know the the game was out if he was a left tackle he would have been drafted as one two years ago so he's really I look at him as an emergency left tackle he's not a guy you want St Are Ready to serve all of your islander needs and worries lighthouse hockey podcasts for New York islanders fans four for the giants to move Evan Ingram but you know Ingram is a guy who has terrific potential yes great from the US indeed there are teams interested in Evin Ingram there is a possibility that the giants would move to Miss Sunday's game against the Detroit lions as he continues to recover from that but there is some replication of skill set between tate other player who you really wouldn't want to expose their Long term and the third option is Eric Smith a player the giants got on did he has a lot of playmaking ability but he has holes in his game he dropped a huge pass on Sunday he's a guy who really in shepherd we haven't seen enough of them together on the field this in during the season to really know if Pat Shurmur and Mike Shula configure out is a possibility and I have no idea if the giants are actually interested in moving on from Golden Tate already he does sort of late in NFL snap so you know so do you really want to expose the blind side of Daniel Jones to Smith or to any but then again you know and again it comes back to to the to the development of Daniel Jones do you WanNa take away another weapon in for him for the remainder of the season but then again if the giants don't see anger him as their long-term answer at tight end you know he's also a way to to use them together to have their skill sets complement each other but as a singer getting back to tate though I in the against trade nate solder who plays left tackle for them for the rest of the two thousand and nine thousand nine season the the reality of it is her the other one that you hear you've heard the name Golden Tate in his in the first year of his four year contract you mentioned in an effort to perhaps upgrade their wide receiving core what I do not know is if the giants are actually interested in trade rumors I do know that there have been some teams asking the giants about tate sniffing around him in in fans I'm joined now by Jeremy Rice men of SP nations Detroit Lions Website Pride of Detroit. Jeremy Thank you very much for spending some time with us no problem at all thanks for having me so let's let's talk about about Sunday's matchup a little bit and I have the start at the start with this you know both the giants and the Lions hired head coach is a year and a half ago things haven't been the able to do all right giants fans let's turn our attention to Sunday's game against the Detroit lions one that the giants acted to win but it would be a really nice rebound win for the giants let's take a quick break for a word from our sponsors when we come back I will talk to Jeremy Reisman of espy nation's pride of Detroit about Sunday's Matchup Hey I'm Spencer Hong another player in light of the giants signing of Dion Buchanan former money backer for the Arizona cardinals another player who exactly as seriously as it should be taken subscribe for free on Apple podcasts or in your favorite podcast APP alright giants so but again as as I said you know take is a player that that teams do appear to be asking about perfect for either team to this point where are you and where are lions fans at this point on on their feelings about Matt Patricia My expectation here and it might not come to pass on Sunday against the lions but my expectation here is that Dion Buchanan at this point they would move Alec Ogle tree if they could find a taker for him I'm just not certain that that that's something in an ultimately takes snaps away from Alica will tree not from David Mayo and we'll see how that plays out but I think that the giants at from from a young quarterback like that you don't want to you don't WanNa slow his development you don't WanNa make things that much harder on him it's two and five coming off a really really disappointing loss to the Arizona cardinals in a game that they really should have one new one that I've referred to as the as the low point of the PAT Shurmur era as giants head coach you this is a game on Sunday that that the giants are not exp whose name you might hear is inside linebacker Alec Ogle Tree the problem there is that I'm just not sure that anyone actually wants Aleka will you talk about college football every now and then like mascot fights announcers fleeing the booth early and unfashionable pants that coaches where now if you want to take college football we as he tries to develop into a into a full-fledged NFL quarterback tate in his couple games back from since his since defensive performance at the lion's head against the Vikings I think most people are not happy obviously with a two three in one start his four-game p. e. d. suspension has become a little bit of a security blanket four Daniel Jones and you have to be careful in taking weapons away point to schedule I mean chiefs packers vikings is a rough gauntlet of three teams right there and I know we've seen the chiefs be mortal for in Holly Anderson I'm Ryan Nanny I'm Jason Kirk and we're the hosts of the shutdown full cast your avengers of college football podcast it says in the script onto riff on that well if you would've asked me this question a week ago I think you would have gotten a lot different answer than the answer this week obviously he's under a lot of fire right now for the what has happened to Detroit over their last three games there really isn't a common pattern I think part of it you can just simply it came to Detroit you with the with the reputation of being a defensive coach I think that has to probably frustration Detroit fans more than anything. I'm considering this team was a nine seven contender at least contending for the playoffs maybe not much beyond a playoff appearance before with Jim Caldwell they were expecting a has control of the locker room and how much they have control the situation I don't think they're in danger of losing losing their job pretty much no matter what happens in these final ten weeks but they're going to be facing in two zero and one stark obviously I think the the weirdness of ending up in a tie with Arizona aside aside from that of there there's heat on Pat Shurmur at the moment you know coming off of of last Sunday loss to Arizona that I have described as ed or anything like that but it's getting close I think that the last ten weeks of the season we'll we'll be telling of how much this coaching staff the worst loss in Shurmur year and a half as giants head coach really the first game that I looked at it and I said that's under or really anything at this point is turn around significantly people are starting to lose patience and it's not to a point where I think a ton of people are calling for his head or the General Mattis Jeremy it's funny in a lot of ways it sounds like the lions are more like the giants perhaps than I thought I mean there's a lot a lot of criticism in your three if if things don't at least look somewhat optimistic by the end of the year Jeremy if I'm not mistaken surly turnaround a culture which is how they're selling it lines fans in waiting long enough and so the fact that nothing seems to have turned around quickly it's definitely frustrating seeing you know Matt Patricia being brought in as a defensive genius and not seeing those results right away I mean we saw a little bit of towards the end of last year the defense can hold up the you know the lines had a chance to win that chiefs game at the end of the game but the defense can stop Patrick Mahomes on the final drive of the game they had a chance results just aren't there they can't stop the run the camp pressure the passer the only thing that seems to be working in line secondary and a lot of those guys were kind of hang around from previous regime so matchup I think as I mentioned before lines inability to stop the run could put them in a lot of trouble in this game there's also the fact that the lines just traded away one of their defensively so I guess this is sort of a long winded speech that leads me to the question of how to use is to win in Green Bay but the defense can stop Aaron Rodgers in the final drive of the game and then you know Kirk cousins and Devon Cook put up forty two on the lines defense coaching staff period and I don't know I mean when you when you look at Detroit you also look at the giants defense and it has a lot of James bechers guys representative a mismatch for Detroit and wines were able to put points up against all those teams who who have you know somewhat decent decent defenses in the packers the vikings at least a big step a step up where the team is not only containing for the playoffs but playoff winds potentially even a super bowl it's been a year and a half now and while that's not a long time to means and basically what I mean is it's all spoiled every Tuesday we talk about everything from cooking disasters to pro wrestling too fashionable pants worn middle school we also leaders in quandary digs which is certain to to rustle up the the locker room a little bit and we'll see if that affects the the play of them but in terms of gives me promise that they'll be able to do the same again this week against the giants maybe even more so and obviously dealing with a rookie quarterback I think askew at this point I think we talked about some of these guys during the summer when when you and I spoke but there are several players last week I I I think it's pretty clear to say that the defense is being underwhelming right now interesting considering that that obviously Matt Patricia C been good at stopping the run in any game this year the fact that some of those offenses maybe the chiefs being accepting they're kind of center around their running game right now the first time in in a year and a half or so but they're just kind of present bad match ups for this team particularly that they're good at running the ball and the lines of not question no question and especially when you go out and get some of your guys patriots guys you get trey flowers you get a whole bunch of help on that defensive front and lions are getting from those three guys from those three defenders especially at this point it's it was better last year than it was this year Z. Sunday's game in what are your thoughts entering Sunday about the New York giants yeah I it it certainly interesting to defend the pass and I think Matthew Stafford playing some of the best ball he's played in his career right now the fact that they were able to light up a Viking Secondary Vikings defense that's very very good you know you follow snacks around in his entire career whether it's the jets or giants or whoever wherever he goes a good defense good run defense follows so the fact that the lines for for whatever reason it seems like snacks has kind of fallen off a little bit of a cliff and he was he was critical of himself more than anyone else this week in Detroit struggles to defend the run because again look at the at that two to three and one record if I'm not mistaken I think the lions have have lost three straight games correct that's right so is on the lions who are former giants notably Damon Harrison Divine Canard Romeo Kwara and I know that the struggled through six games is is probably the biggest shock of the entire team when it comes to Devan Canard and Romeo Kwara those guys are okay Paul Perkins is on the Detroit practice squad at this point just some thoughts about the play you know that that that sure but it's another slow start for the lines defense
The Art of Audacious Leadership with Nancy Jonker
"When we're clear when we have great boundaries when we're confident about who we are then we can show up with just really high levels of graciousness. Hello everyone welcome to the Katya. Best factor podcast for women where we talk about challenges senior female leaders face and being happy and successful at work. I'm your host Dr Sarah e Brown my guest today is Nancy Yonker PhD. She has over thirty one years of experience in the leadership. Transformation space and has mentored get this over two hundred and twenty leaders on four different continents. She too has a podcast called audacious leaders podcast and she is the founder of audacious leaders Mo this is a program that catapults leaguers to new heights and enables them to seize opportunities through leveraging the four signature strengths of their team. I am so happy to have her here to talk to us about the art of audacious leadership. Welcome Nancy. Thank you so much serious. A pleasure to be here. It's great to have you so tell me. I know that you're working in the leadership. Space in general and my audience is primarily female leader. So we're going to extrapolate this a bit as you see fit but what is it that you see as the biggest challenge of leaders in Jan role that are are facing in business before they work with you of course right so in my experience leaders and business owners tend to be overworked and overwhelmed? They're not getting the best and highest performance from their teams and then they're really not able to have the quality of life that they want. Because of the overwork and overwhelm and again we can see that. Just kinda go round and round. They don't see a way out because what they've done in the past which is usually trying harder and working more is no longer working and so I think those are the big issues. There's also I think some uncertainty about how to engage the next generation leaders and there are as you know. Lots of complaints about millennials and so on but often I think there's an understanding of what drives them and so in so getting everyone to work together and have this shared vision and then ways of working at complement one. Another those are some of the bigger challenges are there certain. Symptoms are certain things that you see that in the workplace or that others can stay that indicate that this is the problem. Yes well you know what I get concerned about is when I get emails from people on its four. Am or two. Am something like that. So the the work is creeping into their sleep time and their their health is not getting managed in the way that they really want to anymore. they've let nutrition. Go there. Health Habits. There is that sense of being frazzled. Doing the next urgent thing as opposed to really having some time to be able to think about and be strategic about what their next action steps will be and so they feel like they're working really really hard but they don't always have that companies sense of progress in accomplishment if they recognize the problem or even if they don't recognize the problem what do you see is the biggest mistake they make before they start working with you. Well I think I would break them down into three different mistakes. The first is that they are often resorting to the try harder and work more. I think we tend to learn that his kids right and when you're in school and so on if things aren't working the way we want them to we try try harder but we do more of the same thing. The second thing is oftentimes. We don't understand how we are co creating the reality that we're experiencing right. We might we might see the circumstances around us through the people who aren't delivering the conflicts. That are going on. And we don't see how our own mindset our own actions are on expectations actually are fostering those and in continuing them Peter ssangyong author the fifth disciplined. He talks about the implicit. Nor that's getting carried out and so oftentimes there's just not that level of awareness and then the third mistake I think is not having trusted advisers. Who Have Enough Perspective and distance? That help you come out of the weeds of the what needs to be done on a day to day. Business helps you reflect and really connect to division Very interesting so if somebody is seeing themself in this conversation they want to learn more about this challenge now. Is there a resource that you would suggest that they go access or fine to to to get more into What this challenge is really all about find out if they see themselves in it. Yes one of my favorite things to direct people to is something It's a leadership quiz called ten hidden areas of growth for top leaders and really runs the gamut of different aspects about vision and Health Habits and kind of that whole range of things and that is available at quiz leaders dot com wwf together yes okay so quiz leaders dot com. Okay that's that's very interesting. In that vein. Is there a free resource? You can share with the females female leaders in my audience to help them do something about it now. Yes and of course. That's always the question right. We don't just information that's GONNA help us like somewhere down the road. We want information. That's going to lead to change today and so it I'm just going to give a little bit of context for this because I'm not even sure you know this Sarah but a couple of years ago. I wrote a book for women called. Get Your power on and it's A woman's guide to becoming confident ineffective in business life and relationships and that's not always relevant to the conversation but I think it is relevant to this one in in their talk about the three important arts. The Art of knowing who you are knowing your strengths knowing your full capacity really embracing the full range of who we are for example were determined and playful or were strong and vulnerable. Were courageous and confident right. Because sometimes those can seem like opposites but sometimes it's because confidence isn't always at that study level that we need the courage. Of course I have a program called audacious later some all about Leading with that courage who so so. The Art of knowing who? We are really understanding our strengths. The Art of staying connected to who we are which is all about being grounded and able to be in the present moment And then the art of honoring who we are and in my experience. This is a challenge for women because it has to do his setting great boundaries and being really clear about our priorities and not letting that sense of obligation or guilt sort of skew. What we do. There is a resource at Nancy. Yonker DOT COM WW. Nancy Yonker DOT COM. That talks about three tips for boosting resilience and confidence and in those what we talk about are the art of self compassion the practice daily gratitude and using power poses and so probably right off the bat today. A free actionable steps for people to take is to use power poses which is any expansive pose that you take for two minutes and what happens. Is You get an internal shift of your chemistry? So you boost the testosterone. The confidence hormone in the body and the stress. Cortisol HORMONE IS REDUCED. And and if people WANNA play around with that. That's great fun right so you you do like the victory pose your your arms up in the air and that why or do the wonder woman pose or you can do what. I call the Water Cooler Pose. Where you've got one arm out in one arm on your hip right and you're taking up space. You can. Of course do this in a bathroom stall before. Something important What we know about that is that it helps us be more of who we naturally are and it just let's let's our authentic selves our authentic selves shine through. And then the opposite of that is if you take a very contracted Pose and take up as little space as possible and you can feel the difference right because that actually increases cortisol in the body and so before people have important meetings before they have a conversation that they really want to be strong and and be able to really be themselves. Those those are great things to do. Take those power poses and and really shift the chemistry. So you mentioned a couple of resources. I WanNa make sure that we emphasize here so the name of your book is get Your Power On. And where can people find that that book? Actually UNH- Amazon and talk through his Nancy Yonker and the tricky part about yonkers. It's J. O. N. K. E. R. Got It okay and then there. Is there three tips on your website? Which is Nancy on? Curb DOT COM. That's right very cool. And then we'll have these displayed later for our readers to see. There's a question that I really liked to ask at the end. That comes out of this My guests will be talking about this and Oko. Gee I wish we had a question about this based on this conversation. So what is one question that I should have asked you? That will help our audience to take an action to address this challenge for themselves. Yeah all right so so one of the things that I like to talk about. A little bit is why audacious like. Why is that the name of what I've lied? Risks with my program and its dishes leaders. Mo which is modus operandi which is really our way of being in the world are signature style if you will and the reason I went with audacious is because what I hear from so many women and people in particular is that we need permission to be able to go after our goals to be able to leave our comfort zone to try new things to risk when our tendency is maybe not to take risks and so this whole concept of being audacious and being bowled is coupled with a tagline that was developed in conversation with people who are in a mastermind with me. And it's actually audacious gracious antennas and so it kind of defies people's expectations right audacious makes it sound like you're going to go out and you're GONNA be all powerful in someone but when you when you marry that with the graciousness and tenaciousness that often is required to pursue our goals and achieve them. And and I think it speaks to this thing that when were clear when we have great boundaries when we're confident about who we are then we can show up with just really high levels of graciousness and so. That's what I would kind of leave with your with your listeners. This idea of how can you be more? Gracious more audacious and more tenacious. Great Nancy thank you. Thank you for that. And you shared some great stuff with us and I want to recap that quiz leaders dot com to begin to explore this for yourself and your book which is available on Amazon. Get Your power on. And then the three tips which we can find on your website night Nancy on dot com. Nancy thank you so much. I'm getting ready to go practice.

The Porn Reboot Podcast Episode 178: IQ and Porn Addiction
"Welcome to the porn regroup podcast where you get practical tips to gain control over your born or sex addiction I'm your host jk. Certified Sex and addiction recovery coach. Welcome to the episode. Today, we're going to be speaking about your intelligence and the effect of Porn addiction on it. Now, I often get questions from men and you brother may also have that question as to how much of any facts porn addiction has on our intelligence and one of the reasons why is that men who slip relapse or who are experiencing a prolonged relapse over a couple of months notice that. The cognitive functions a noticeably decreased during that time, and they also realize that when they stay off pornography and even masturbation for a certain period of time this seem better able to consume and process information to retain information. Their memory seems much better and overall. They seem a lot more intelligence. Now, I've often spoken about the effects of pornography on the prefrontal CORTEX. But before we dive into that today, I, do want to speak briefly about my experience. First of all, there are a lot of men that I've worked with WHO have complained that well into the twinsies, the teas and even forties. They struggled with a lack of focus poor memory and eventually they just kind of gave up and attributed that to some sort of dysfunction. They have maybe add ADHD and they're like, you know what I probably have something wrong with me. Maybe be have a little bit of depression here and there, and that's why I'm not. There you know cognitively and it's surprising. The number of men who never attributed this to their porn addiction because it's only in the last decade or so that research has been done, which proves that compulsive pornography use has an impact on not just your dull brain but also brain acid develops in your in your twenties. Obviously, there are a lot of things that can cause any sort of cognitive decline dysfunction. Pornography is a big one and I. Don't think we can discounts it and focus and others until we truly understand what's happening. Now, I pretty much classified myself a stupid until the age of twenty five, you may find it surprising but. I did not become verbally articulate. Till, I was about thirty one years old and right now I'm thirty six, which means that if you spoke to me a couple of years ago while I was in my late twenties or mid twenties, it'd be like he's an okay guy but it's but something's off with him. He's a little off maybe he's artistic or maybe he has some sort of speech impediments and actually as a result of developing the ability to articulate myself late in life those of you who are regular listeners out the podcast will. Notice just a few mistakes that I might make or just some in in my articulation and some for some of you may not notice it at all. So I wasn't able to do that to last thirty, one years old, and that was when I actually have the confidence to put myself out there in some sort of like a youtube channel doing a lot more public speaking and the reason why I'm sharing this is because I felt that I was in this, some parts of my brain would just locked up. Until I was in my late twenties. That was when it seems like I started coming to my census, not just verbally but also in my ability to process types of information in my ability to process, that's an emotions in my ability to control suits and impulses. And here's what I found over the years. And this is also going to explain a lot about the way I work too but. Between the ages of. Eighteen to twenty five typically years where we are zoomed to be adults. Actually. Still missing major cognitive functions Major. Processes that work together in our brain. See, the prefrontal Cortex of brain does not fully develop till a mid to late twenties. and. It has been theorized that for some men, it does not even develop. Till our thirties and that's actually a cultural thing that's happening these days and the reason why we find a lot of men who end early thirties who still behaving like children but you know certain parts of their behavior, their life and their behavior are immature. So the prefrontal CORTEX has a quick reminder is the part of your brain, which is in charge of the memory of your attention and giving attention deciding which processes in your brain. Require attention. It's in charge of prioritizing. It's in charge of planning basically victory important things and earlier on I had spoken about the neo cortex in another episode and the mid brain with the mid brain being depart if your brain the oldest part of your brain also known as the grain which is involved and managing survival mechanisms while the neo cortex is the part of your brain, which is deals with consciousness with memory and so on. Well the PREFRONTAL CORTEX actually makes up one third off your neo. CORTEX. And so when it's still in development all the way through your mid twenties, late twenties and theorize also into your early thirties. But what that means is that In your mid twenties and early twenties you're not fully able to make certain connections between emotions, impulses, and Planning in Oh problem solving, and at that point in your life, your emotions going too far outweigh things like your ability to strategize consequences of sorts and actions are just being rational in general. And A lot of of industries actually wear this. This is one of the reasons why the car rental industry does not rent a cars to individuals below twenty five and there are a lot of indices that do that I do that myself. We do not work with men who are under the age of five and the reboot intensive program, but we do woke with men on the data of Twenty Five and implementation program and I I. I. Really didn't understand why this was to be quite honest because we just realize that guys who are under twenty five just. Would not getting the same results Minna. Higher Level Program. Than the other men and I was just like you know what the data shows. It guys who are on the twenty five years do not get results did not able to follow through and we don't know why but I know that it's hurting porn reboots and it's hurting these men. Let's just stop working with those men and create an easier step by step program for them come to find out in my research. That's. The prefrontal CORTEX is not fully developed and that I was like, wow. Okay. That explains a lot. But here's the important thing. When you are addicted to pornography one of the first things that's affected is the neural connections in your prefrontal. CORTEX. They are weakened when you are adults and they do not fully developed. When you're viewing pornography in your early twenties and so you slow down the growth of your prefrontal, cortex. All addictions actually do that. It's just that for a lot of people who are functional and who are not addicted to alcohol and who are not addicted to drugs. The next problem they usually have is some addiction to pornography and so. If you find that throughout your life, you have struggled to make its in certain areas of your life. If you find that you've had trouble focusing for long periods of time and you're diagnosed with different things, add adhd this and that but you had consistently from your late teens or early teens throughout your twenties been addicted to pornography whether it was from magazines or vhs videos, and then when high speed Internet pornography came along and you know it blew up. It is worth considering. The possibility that behavior with pornography has affected your cognitive abilities and I'm very hesitant to. Outright say that that is exactly the problem that you're facing. But I know that personally even when I had ended my behavioral Photography Right before I turned twenty five. There were a lot of things that I didn't develop till I was in my late Twenties and even my early thirties and that wasn't too long ago at the age of eighty six now, and my theory is because of all those years that I spent viewing pornography and I feel that it took a little bit longer for my prefrontal Cortex to rewire and I think this is very significant because from the age of twenty five onwards, I was not living what you could call quote unquote average life I mean I was I was pushing it in every area of my life I was reading close to. I would say close to one hundred books a year and I took that to a higher level as I got to my late twinsies. Working on improving multiple areas of my life I wasn't sleeping much. This is true I was cranking almost eighty hours and many times over eighty hours a week every week for all those years. But despite everything they were still many normal skill sets like the ability to articulate myself fluently even as a former salesman I just had a script which I repeated over and Over and over and over again because if I went off script I was a bumbling idiot I was like people like, are you? Okay Iu autistic is something wrong with you so it wasn't until much later that I developed this and so I just wanted to share this with you brothers. One thing is that one of the symptoms of your prefrontal cortex being affected by Is What's called Hypo Fronts Halladay. And this were. In Multiple Ariza feel life you experience weakened impulse control and quote unquote willpower because your frontal lobes are inhibited by. Dan Habits it because you just don't have enough neural connections there, and if you're a man who struggles with an out of control behavioral with inaugural fee and you also noticed that you have weak impulse control when it comes to other things. Like, food like entertainments and you know the habits in your life where this could be affecting you. Then that is a clear symptom and probably WanNa fix theorist symptoms that I've observed in my life and in my clients lifestyles that you'll prefrontal cortex effected they are men who are in intensive program who don't really relate to this they are addicted to pornography their addictions Nagasy took off when they gained access to high speed Internet. Nagasaki, but in most areas of their life, they're not really impulsive like when it comes to work when it comes to the important responsibilities and their life, they can be hyperfocused that absolutely fine and then we have other men who they are successful in their careers successfully in other areas of their life. But they do admit that it takes an incredible amount of efforts and even in some cases, they need medication things like, adderall Modafferi. Tons of caffeine and other things to actually perform at an average or slightly above average level, and once they take all those things away, they become absolutely impulsive. So in conclusion brothers in my personal experience and the experience of quite a number of my clients, you'll behavior with pornography does have a distinct impact on you'll cognitive ability and it is important to understand that you don't. Completes your natural cognitive developments till you are in your mid to late twenties. Early, thirties thing would a pinch of salt but I think there are a lot of lessons that we can take away from that, and there's a lot to unpack there and I'll probably do that over the next couple of episodes to dive deeper into this. But in the meantime I actually this is one of those episodes where I'd love to hear some of your experiences and your feedback in this area.

Expect Awesome #89 - Spreading Love
"This is the expect awesome podcast, your source for expecting and achieving awesome with God powered confidence. Motivational Speaker and integrity. Doctors President Mr Ryan. What's going on everybody and welcome to another episode here at the expect Awesome podcast. My name is Ryan Mall on the President Integrity Doctors author of. Awesome really, Dope Kids Book and I love doing these podcasts. Man I've loved hosting this and I've taken some time off I was doing quite a few during the cold pandemic and supporting our doctors and putting stuff out there, that was four doctors and. I was wanting to jump back in and get back into the awesomeness and and. Dangerous keep happening and I quickly realized that there's just not going to be a perfect moment to jump back in. They're just not going to be a perfect moment to to get back to talking about awesome again, and so since there's not just the perfect time I'm just to do it. I'm jumping back in. And this one is slightly different. It might sound a little different for those listening, and that is because I'm no longer just doing this as an audio podcast. Just sitting recording with the microphone. I'm actually video recording this. It's been a request I received many times. Some people would rather I. Guess Look at me. Look at me I I and and here this come from me, so this is happening now, so if you're listening on the podcasts I appreciate your listening. It will stay that way. But now I'm also posting it online, so it'll be on my youtube channel. But you'll be able to easily find it easily. If you just go to facebook dot com slash Rien, que mall. That's my page. Go ahead everything I, post there. I got rid of my personal page I. Don't use it anymore. So that's where I moved everything to. Post on it is that. It'll be posted there and you'll get the links as well if you'd like to watch it, so let's talk man. Let's let's get into this thing. Because things are going down and I realized that right now this week. It may not have felt so awesome. I realized. There's some things going around right now. That aren't feeling like as awesome as we should be. I know that there's some hurt I know. There's a lot of hurt I know that there's a lot of a darkness right now. There's a lot of fear and there's a lot of hate. The and it's just being kind of drawn to the front, and while you know if you've listened to my episodes of the past I, don't like to cover politics or social things are or even really the news much because it's not really it's not my expertise. I'm just going to be frank with you. I, one thing I learned very early on for my father was you need to know what you don't know? And there's a lot of things I do know and those things I do like to help you with, but there are some things I'm not as versed in and while I, think it would be strange for me to do this and release this and not acknowledged reality and. Realize that there's an understanding that it's hard to talk about awesome right now so what I wanted to do this week to get back in. Is this wasn't this wasn't when I planned on, but I feel like it's necessary. Because I do think that there are some things that need to happen in our world right now, and one of those is what I feel is a big key, and it's an easy one. It's a very easy thing to. Do. But it it's easy from a conceptual standpoint, but it isn't always the easiest thing to put in place, and so I wanNA. Talk to you about it today now before you get nervous about what I'm going to talk to you about. I'M GONNA. Tell you a story. A story I. Never Honestly intended to tell you. It was kind of one of those stories. Keep for myself. And you'll kind of know why because if you know me. You know that a few years ago. My younger brother, Kyle passed away. My brother was thirty one years old. And he died and I. I. I don't talking about it. I'm just GONNA. Put that out there. I, don't I'm not over it. I'm not. SETTLED FROM IT I. Still a lot of damage in lingering with it. But one of the things that I was very blessed with with my brother was that in his final days I was able to talk to him now I talked to way that the day before he passed that night before I was able to make my peace I guess is the easiest way to put it. I was able to go in and talk to him and. Tell him some things I felt like I needed to say in while he couldn't respond. The fact that he was still here. I felt like it was helpful to tell him. And amongst all those things. I. Most of them will stay with me. Most of them will be things I never share with anyone. But there is one that I do WANNA share. And that is simply this you know. We were brothers we were we were guys. We were very manly. Guys played football, and we were brothers and we would. Do brotherly things, and even fight like brotherly things celebrate like brotherly things and. There was something that we weren't necessarily the greatest APP and that was. Telling each other how we felt about each other now we joke, and we would kid and we would tease. But it became very aware to me in my internally. This time and now knowing that he was about to die that. I really hadn't told him I'd loved him in a long time. and. that. was something I felt like I had to do I didn't want him going, and why would is said that he would? He knew it. I wouldn't have said he didn't feel like. I didn't love him, but it was more important to me. Tell him rather than assume that he knew. And so I I did I. I told him that I loved him. And I told him that I knew that he loved me. And I told him that mom and dad loved him. And I told him that he didn't have to worry. because. They knew that. He loved them to. and. The! EASIEST WAY to put. It is I I made a lot of promises to him. And there was. A bunch I won't talk about, but there was one in that was. I knew how much he loved. My parents and I knew that he didn't make things easy all the time. And because of that, I promised him that I would make sure that mom and dad always knew how much we love them. Now. My Mom knows I. I, we're! We're Mama's boys, so there's never been a problem telling mom how much we love model. But. Not, so much for Dad. Because, we were guys now. What if you know my father? You know he's now much of a Hugger, and that's true even for us. You know there's it was more of an understanding of your feelings. It was understanding how we felt. And at the moment where I knew realized that. I had to tell my brother I loved him, and when I made him the promise to make sure that our parents never felt like they weren't loved by us. I knew as soon as he passed what I really needed to do was make sure I didn't make the same mistake that I made with my brother. And, the mistake was the fact that I finally told him I loved him. But. He couldn't actually say back. and. I don't want that for my dad. I don't want. My Dad. To not bill say it back. or at least not go through enough time where he did. So if if you're ever at a conference in, you'll know. He leaves early sometimes he flies out before I do many a times I always make note to go. Find Him beforehand and tell them I love them. Just in case. I. Would we leave their house? When we leave the island, we I always make sure I. Tell Them I love. and. It's not just important to me because I made the promise to Kyle. It's important to me because. I do. and. It means something. And I tell you all this. Not because I want to try to bring up any of your own family user. Any of your own kind of harboring thoughts I. It's it's merely simply because. I think if there's one thing our world needs right now. It needs more people saying I love you. Because you know if if I look around at everything that's happening. I look around all the hurt. In all the hate. And Look at how everything's being pushed right now and every technological device that we have everything you to shows, nothing but ugliness and hate. And I realized something that. If anything right now. I just need to start telling people how much I love them. Now I realize even as I say that there's an easy way to think that. To think that. There's a different types of love and I get the different types. You know obviously I love my parents and I love my brother differently than I love strangers, and I love my children and I love my wife differently. I love just my friends. There's a difference there. Obviously, there is kind of a hierarchy, but that doesn't mean I don't love people. So what I want to make sure is that I. don't go at any point in you. Not Knowing how much I love people, which means. I'm going to start right now with it and by telling you whether if I'm looking at you right now, face to face on facebook or Youtube, or you're listening to me in the car right now. I want to tell you from the bottom of my heart. I love you. I love you and I love you not just because I want to say it, not just because I think it's important because honestly. You've taken the time to listen to me. You've taken the time to follow me. You've taken the time to heed my advice or maybe not immediately and then did it later. But for you to be close enough to actually listen to what I'm saying and to be along with me for the ride. I'm not just thankful for you. I'm not just grateful for you. I love you. I love you. And I am. Not going to be ashamed to say anymore. and. That's why I want to challenge you. This week this month. For the remainder of two thousand twenty, because honestly people. Thousand Twenty can only get better. I mean. If it's GonNa get worse I'd rather start talking about love. I'd rather start sharing love. And I'm willing to bet that there's people right now. Dick could really use it because here's the one thing I know. Every time my dad says it back. It never gets old. Every time one of my friends says it. I didn't expect to hear it. Never as bad. I love it. I love hearing it. It makes me feel better. Because at the end of the day. It's awesome to feel loved. It's awesome to be loved. And telling someone that you loved them? Is Us. So I want you to think of some people right now. The you need to tell you love them now I, get it. It's going to be uncomfortable I get it. It's not going to be the easiest thing to say I get it. It's GonNa. Make you feel weird. But I don't care. I want you to start spreading awesome. By telling the people around you, the love them. Because that's how you change the world. It's love it's going to do this thing. It's loved. It's GONNA save us. Because I. Don't know if you remember not. But it's very famous book. That's been around a very long time.

"I emission Lucchini founder of Mine Valley the School for Human Transportation you're listening to the Minor League podcast where we'll be bringing you the greatest teachers and thought leaders on the planet discussed the world's most powerful ideas and personal growth for mind body spirit and work you're GonNa love this next episode yeah and remind people they are divine time after time line after line rhyme after rhyme a vision for what can exist on this planet what we saw when we all came down and landed from the stars and worthy of your own show and get on stage and let people know that you are here to grow you are here to glow and shine poet of love ambitionless Kiani and this is the Mind Valley podcasts we've done something special each and every morning we wake up we go and we take up all the food from there and if you're like me I stole a couple bottles of water community and allow ourselves to be seen in our authenticity emission that we feel deep inside everything inside of myself I can put my shadow beside myself not identify with the Ego let it go and be something more mission that allows us to guide others simply by being the light when it feels right what is possible what might be so you know that there's no agenda it's a unique alchemy everyone in this room not a moment too soon I'm the best versions of ourselves so that we can become a reflection for humanity of what humanity can be when we step into unity and ain't drinking it up by the mouthful recognizing that one of the best things we can do for everyone reminding them that it's true that being happy even say this is who I am this is what I felt this is what I've learned from each of you this is what I've earned from each of you recognizing that together something that has let me up is the passion inside each and every one of you filling your cup coming here and saying I am worthy of expanding is I see a version of myself one that cares one that's willing to go there the dark places inside of ourselves that allow us to be oh can I open hearts and it starts with me showing vulnerability so what I'll choose to do is make a poem just for you right now so what happens when I step on stage and I allow you to see me truly see me without any idea of what it means to be me other than to get onstage and be oh not a moment too late it's exactly what you came here to receive because what I've seen here at this experience has warmed my heart it's given me hope going from one dope person to the next dope person I've recognized than each of your so when I step into a room full of powerful people I say and what we found was it became the most watched video piece on instagram people started sharing on whatsapp receive over a million views. Adam is going to open your mind to new ideas of love awareness how you treat in think about yourself in how you treat and thank God oh tell room and then pretty soon we're in these breakout sessions all these rooms that are full drinking by the earful and then going out and and that's how I know that this is going to be something that you just absolutely going to enjoy what you're listening here is default twenty minute spoken word poetry piece by Adam rower is the best way to elicit change because the revolution gets to be irresistible the revolution gets to be irresistible if you have view always been like this have you always been able to choose love been able to ride but made it fun if you haven't made it cool why would anyone take the curriculum from your school on how to live life. I would think twice from listening to the person who goes back home and hates their job and hates their relationship and really wants to get out of everything that they did for the last ten years but hasn't yet found the strength within themselves to do it of other people so this talk is so frigging call we released a tiny four-minute slice of it on mine values instagram account instagram dot com at nine. Goudy so I stand on stage and a lot of people have asked me this question over the past few days above has this methodology this ideology fit like a glove always no i WanNa let you know to choose love for someone who did something to me that caused me to walk through the world with fear in my heart putting up walls not letting this was something that I learned to do because I was molested at the age of five by a man very close to me my family and I didn't remember that memory until I was almost thirty one years old and so my mission has been how do I give myself permission he given moment there could be calamity tragedy what I can't see the unknown is fear in me 'cause we project into the unknown based on our past experience and so if you've walked through the world fearing this been you're going to project into the unknown fearing that apple near to my heart clear from the start that there's a certain distance that we get to have because if you got to close there'd be something bad that could happen to me and those views that's a human being who will choose to listen to you in this digital age we sometimes forget in your pain into your purpose and become the one that can have a unique message that goes out to an audience that is uniquely yours who wants to how to see this I learned how to be this which means every single one of you can every single one of you who took my hand and said thank you but I don't know if my circumstances are actually the same own they know it's possible for them to regain their cosmic thrown kings and Queens in this room you are role models for the and so yes I come on stage and I wear a dope hat and I speak in rhymes and you go to that and recognize that I learned how to do this I learned being human you don't get discouraged you recognize that in their eyes you see yourself people who see gloom and doom when they look out and they see the news and they hear about trump and they see all the page views on stupid shit that doesn't mean anything but then when you put out that every one of those views as a human being searching for it searching for love the best they know how and learning to forgive for you became the person who could even see yourself and when you learn to love the deepest parts of yourself the is yours could you choose love if you were sitting exactly where I was sitting or would you start forgetting the things that you preach about the things that you speak about and I know it's hear your voice wants to see the choice that you made to overcome the same types of behavior that they experienced so they don't feel so alone shadow the anger the judgement you can have compassion when people reflect back to you the parts of yourself that you used of an open your heart to compassion for each and every person who may not have the same passion who may not have the same level of courage when you can see them as human support for you with what I've been through in my life I recognize that in yours life doesn't give you anything that you aren't strong enough to overcome strong enough to turn moment of silence when I finish and I want that to be a permission slip for you to fall more deeply in love with yourself take the to feel guilty about or shame about this is a journey that begins by learning to love ourselves and so I'm going to share a poem with you right can I have everyone take a nice deep breath in you appreciation and love and we'll do that in a moment of silence and after that moment of silence you're welcome to clap as much as you want energy that you felt the appreciation that you felt and pointed inward for everything it took for you to be the person who's sitting here today all the other things you could have been about the movies we watch all the shows on TV the more I watched the more I see I need you to complete me and yes love is the answer I've been looking for and empty feeling you got that hole in your chest you only got that feeling because you think you're not blessed with everything you need now this one I wrote we've seen it it's called you are who you been looking for an generally what happens is when I share a poem I'm doing you chose to be here for all the things that you're going to do when you leave here to carry this message out loud and clear I want you to give yourself gratitude love is the key but if you can't love yourself how can you ever love me and loving yourself what does that even mean like massages and sell fees and that sort of thing because the more you'll get girls by this bra you'll get guys and we're seeing it so much that we start believing these lies but the truth is you see we live in a consumerist society which means they need you to buy stuff and the easiest way to sell it is to tell you you're not enough buy this car that I picked up from a friend who noticed that I was quick to defend her when she would say something negative about her self she'd say I'm so dumb and I'd say you're so I can't say I'm so weak and I'd say you're so resilient and when she said I feel ugly and I said you look beautiful she asked me why me a hug and she said treat yourself like someone you love treat yourself think about it the more it feels weird I've always been taught that self love with something to be feared I've been taught that arrogance is bad and vanity it's not good and even my bracelets are telling me give you that energy and then you give it back to me in the form of applause for this poem in particular I would like for there to be the makeup they're selling to make you feel prettier say makeup you buy to stop feeling shittier about this lie they keep telling you that you are not enough and infection so start today take a good long look in the mirror and say I dr who you've been looking for so stop looking for more unless you're looking in a mirror because it's about time for you to see clearly that you are who you simply by choice sealing it with a nice deep breath in I was so dutifully filling up her cup constantly and yet treating my own cup so irresponsibly because when I looked in the mirror my voice was quite clear an who I've been looking for feeling every cell of your body becomes seeping through your body until you feel yourself glowing feeling yourself elevated off like someone you love now I've been standing but I needed to be sitting because I couldn't believe that I've been letting myself keep forgetting that I was who I've been looking for receptive to your own self love shine a light on that part of yourself that you've been struggling to let go of alone will get lighter and you can see that with life you can be a lover not a fighter and that life you deserve it because you are me is the only one who can make me happy I am already enough and I'm not anymore special or unique than you that's why I'm here to speak the act how Jesus would so what should I do how should I act I'm supposed to love myself but how do I even do that well I gotta to you you are already enough and when you start to see that you will start to be that your world will get brighter if it and there's no point in letting yourself keep forgetting because no matter what you say or do you are perfect and so today radio that you think should get a million views it gets a lot of people in this group Manno thousand ten thousand but recognized that for each one part of yourself that you've been struggling to love point lights into every crevice like warm water I hope I leave you with a direction correction away from the flaws you see in your reflection they aren't flaws to me they are simply protection against all the doubts you have of your this week thank you for being on my belly fan four and deep in my core I knew it was time to stop looking for more until I could look through all my fear and look into a mirror and see clearly that the man looking back when you watch Adam onstage this man is so amazing to see visually he is so
