Wet Notes - 9-13-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shock radio from monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one first up today is in another idea for diving with a purpose in one of the most recent newsletters from the coral restoration foundation the coral chronicles. There was a report that cr f. is teaming up with the atlantis. Dive resort in douma getty to offer a unique opportunity to participate in a week long program at the result in helping them build and maintain the largest coral nursery endowing. Actually the town where. Atlantis is located. The program is being sponsored by the coral restoration foundation. The loveland living planet aquarium and the meat foundation. The program runs from september twenty fourth to october. First two thousand twenty two there are planned educational sessions on coral ecology along with restoration efforts and techniques. You also conduct restoration. Dives along with some fun dies. This sounds really fascinating. One of the pictures into newsletter showed the table coral at apo island. I vividly remember that area when we dove air in two thousand nineteen there wasn't any pricing available in the article and you'll have to contact the hotel directly if you have the time and desire to dive with a purpose check out this program and market on your calendar. Long time ago. Donna and i lived in hawaii that was in the mid nineteen eighties. At that time we got to experience. What was probably one of the first while in walls in honolulu. If you're not familiar with wilem walls you can check them out. The wall was a large mural of the humpback whale on the side of a building near waikiki. It was quite impressive. Well it might not be a while and wall but if you happen to be near brant rock in mansfield massachusetts you can catch a the view of a mural of a large shark painted on the side of an old restaurant according to wicked local dot com. The mural was painted by a local artist. Shane leonard. Shane was a former football player at boston college. Who has a passion for painting and a passion for sharks. Now the muros on the side of the former arthur and patch restaurant that closed back in two thousand fifteen. The shark faces divers as they head down ocean street which is a one way street. So you can't miss it say. Shane says he likes the way shark. Show emotion. the photo is pretty impressive. there's no guarantee that the building won't be torn down. Now that is unoccupied but according to shane. Even if it doesn't survive it was worth doing so if you happen to be near mansfield mass check out the shark mural on ocean street about a month ago. Patio wear foundation announced their fourth annual aware week. Now this year it will run from september. Eighteenth through september twenty six two thousand and twenty one the whole idea behind aware week is to empower the global dive community to lead or take part in conservation activities in courses focused on local action for global impact in the past aware has focused on two elements marine debris and vulnerable marine species this year in concert with patties blueprint for ocean action. They're adding three more components. Climate change marine protected areas and coral reefs. Some of the ways. That dive shops can participate or by conducting aware classes like dive against debris coral conservation or the aware specialty. Also like us. You can become a one hundred percent aware dive centre where you provide a monthly contribution in support of the patty certifications you award. We are very proud to be one hundred percent aware. But here's something that. Patty aware foundation needs to work on. We need more notice as to win. Aware week is happening. I wasn't sure what was happening this year and our calendar filled up and we weren't able to get things scheduled as i mentioned at the top of the show. We've already created are twenty twenty two calendar and it would be nice to know when aware week twenty twenty two is happening. I also mentioned at the top to show that the re photo contest results were in and that i didn't win while scuba diving magazine. Magazine's two thousand and twenty one through the lens contest is also complete. The winners were recently released at scuba diving. Dot com and the photos will be revealed in september october special photo issue. They received one thousand seven hundred and nineteen photos from around the world. The contest categories included behavior compact camera macro and wide angle. The entries were judged on beauty originality and unique encounters. I check them out and they are spectacular. I only wish. I had the talent impatience to do that kind of work. Now if you wanna get a jump onto twenty twenty two contests they will start accepting entries january third two thousand twenty two and you can submit your photos through may thirty first two thousand and twenty two and finally we recently received our two thousand twenty two aqualung buyer's guide along with information on all the new products coming down from aqualung apex. So i thought. I'd give you a little preview on what's on the horizon. I from aqualung. They are releasing a new regulator the helix pro and the helix it looks like the helix pro is a mid range regular and i think it's replacing their core. It is a balanced first and second stage in his environmentally sealed with four low pressure ports and two high pressure ports. It was built for cold water and has the automatic closure device or a cd. lower end. helix is not environmentally sealed. And it doesn't have a cd and it's designed for warmer water. Also coming out in two thousand and twenty two is their new. Aqua fluck aqua flex men and aqua flex woman wetsuits. I think it's a redesign of their tried and true. Aqua flex line they also have a two millimeter. Free flex wetsuit now. The i one hundred computers going to come in a new color yellow and speaking of colors. They've added a number of different colors to various products including something called sand petrol red and orange as for eight packs. They also have a new regulator the xl four osha and it is billed as a totally sustainable regulator bay from post consumer waste it comes in grey or mint with some great etching. On the first stage. I suspect it's just like the xl four plus being an overbalanced diaphragm regulator with two hp and four l. p. ports. It looks pretty. Sharp and apex is releasing a new dive computer to the sx. It will be program can program up to six gases and monitor six transmitters. The has a titanium basil making it lightweight endurable but also has a color display. There's something more that require. Some more research It says it has in oh to analyze or onboard. But no to sell gotta check that out a little bit. There's a lot more out there and over time. I'll give you more updates from both aqualung and apex. Well that wraps up wet notes. Here on scuba shock. Radio for monday september thirteenth. Two thousand twenty one
What Do the Scriptures Say About Abuse?
"Women of faith. You're really familiar with the wheat in the tears. And for you women who are not a faith. Please indulge me in listening to this and i would love your help as well. I've been studying the parable of the wheaton the tears and i'm wondering if matthew thirteen verse twenty five where it says but while men slept i wonder sometimes if that means that while the clergy while the legal system and basically any man who could stop the abuse but won't right they will not hold the abuser accountable. They won't believe us they won't listen to us. That as these men sleep that the children of the devil grew and grew until you could see their fruits. Basically is what this is talking about. And so a lot of victims of abuse try to justify not setting boundaries with the abuser. Because he's quote unquote a child of god like well. He's a child of god. And so i'm gonna love him and care about him and god loves him but in this parable starting in matthew thirteen it clearly states that there are children of the quote unquote wicked one. And i've really been thinking about the way that the scriptures both the bible and the book of mormon describe men who are not obeying the commandments. They don't say and he didn't obey the commandments. Because he felt shame and so we wanted to love him and care about him. They don't say that they actually call them a word and the word that they call them is wicked. This is a common term used throughout the scriptures. Part of me is wondering. Why don't use this term anymore. This wicked term and part of it is the christian. You know aversion to passing judgment but christ also asks us to decipher between good and evil. That's part of the reason why we're here on earth and so. I think this is an interesting thing to think about. There are those of us who have set boundaries. We've removed every single thing. The abuser can use to hurt us so essentially there's nothing left for them to use to hurt us except for one thing our children and because they're the dad they have that in and they're able to assert control that way every day. I has stories of shiro's victims of abuse who are slaughtered regarding custody in the courts. They're not believed or supported by their churches and everyday i hear about how their children these children of wicked men and righteous mothers are just dragged through chaos and
Breaking Down the Marxist Ideology of Climate Change
"Says the main sources for climate crisis are the political and economic systems. Capitalism. Constitutionalism, commercializing and re if eyeing, nature and life, less impoverishing spirituality and imposing consumerism and developmental is, um That generate unequal regimes and exploitation of resources. It's a mouth full of stupidity. The global crisis that's exasperated by unsustainable practices of exploitation and consumption. By the developed countries and the elites of the developing countries. See China loves these useful lead idiots. It does their work for them. Like Ed Markey of Massachusetts. If China could they give them? You know, A, uh Medal of Communism Award in Beijing. He's such a putt. We demand the leaders in the North, not continue Such wicked practices. That destroy the planet and demand. The leaders in the South not followed the development models in place in the North, which lead to the civilizing crisis. We urge them to construct an alternative path to achieve fair, egalitarian and sustainable societies and fair economies. Uh, a k a Marxist. For such purposes. It is required that the developed countries meet their moral and legal obligations, especially vis a vis vulnerable and marginalized countries and communities by lifting barriers such as intellectual property rights. Which prevent the attainment. The preservation of life of the planet and the salvation of human species. That's amazing intellectual property rights. So where does the order these intellectual Inventions and products come from Mr Producer. Capitalism. It's not fair that we don't share them. So we have to destroy capitalism and yet make its bounty available to The rest of the world.

Pros & Cons of the Rode NTG-3 Shotgun Microphone
"The road in tj. Three a shock. I'm mark not a traditional choice for a podcast is still my favorite mark. My voice when. I'm speaking completely in awe selection if it's just going to be may on the recording like maybe on the bubble podcast for example which is a tv podcast that. I don't like a hubby cher. That mock works. Great for that when i think about what. I'd like to san locked recorded. That mike doesn't fill me. It gets me there but there are a few issues with the mark being a super cardio. Patent mania has a very taught pickup patent in front of the microphone. Basically when those patents start to become more narrow it does open up a window at the back of the marker fine for whatever reason physics that you will sell a some re noise problems. So if you've got a holly reflective surface directly behind the mic or annoy souls like a small feign or an air conditioner on the wall directly behind the mock you will mice lockley pick up more of that san than you're expecting to and the other thing is and this is something that ryo tiger actually mentioned to me that ryo tiger from the podcast. Roundtable shukan mocks. Ken behave little bit strangely in very small rooms and i mean a very small room at the moment. This is a small bedroom. That i mean now so i don't use it in. He because when tested adding this is the smallest of ever obtaining podcasting was basically just the studio and that it does and very booming here. And i'm not sure why is just the way does marks wick. It does tend to send muddy if it's not in exactly the right place in the room. Like i could find a spot in this room but i had to three lodge catches in so unless i'm going to record standing up talking to that mike where can move around a little bit. I'm kind of limited. As to where i can actually position myself. Sorry i would bar. I shock on mike and try in your space. I if at all possible because in my opinion you're either gonna get close to the best vocal sant that you're gonna be able to get or it could be really hard to deal with

"It was fun to be out there. I have a good time when when i can get kids laughing. It's always makes your great floats so so make your kids run. I've had parents starting to scold their kids for being too ornery and You know to to chill out not said no. No we gotta get them revved up so they can start laughing and having fun so so yeah do that for family photos and get some good ones with folks now taking more photos than ever and thanks to phone cameras being as good as they are Folks are ending up with more pictures than ever before. Then bef- before you go on vacation and come back with a role or to of film and have some four by sixes done and now it's very easy to to go on vacation for a week or two and come back with a couple of hundred or or in my case a few thousand frames. What are what are your techniques for managing libraries for sorting through picking your best stuff out and then and then safely storing them so they don't get get lost or art at risk of data loss. I'm not the best organizer in the world. But i've managed to do it Just out in the subsidy and and with me. I don't work for adobe. But i swear by adobe light room you know. It's it's made for photographers. You can At large numbers of images very easily it has a database built into can keyword images and You know give them flags in higher ratings of the better images so all always out. All upload my images and flagged the good ones early on and rarely look at my other images. But i don't delete them so i actually getting ready for retirement. I was digging through my image. I'd over two hundred thousand images. And i boil them down to about twelve thousand that i'm going to send in to folks the to be able to use but it. It would have taken years to do that without out. Light room but i was just able to to to do that but yeah most of the other images are like multiple exposures bracketing. Things like that and the only reason i saved them as. There's always that time that somebody kicked themselves saying boy. I wish i would have had a slightly different angle or something. And data's mesa's free in as long as you don't have to sort through. It doesn't hurt to have on file. I i would hope that someone at blm or interior has flagged the library of congress or the smithsonian. Because it seems like they're really ought ought to be a bob wick collection that goes online at some point to document your remarkable career. And everything you have done for for public land so if someone hasn't already made that suggestion to them or to the library. I'm gonna do that next because knowing that. That's out there. That is something that should not just vanish and sit on a shelf somewhere On on some stored hard drives. The world ought to be able to to see that and enjoy that. So that is just fabulous knowing that that's that's out there and we'll be a resource for the country going forward. I don't even have time to get into to light room. And you're processing techniques and your your approaches to that..

"You get to you know there are some star trails a little bit on the edge but the milky way it's on the edges. Yeah but the the center is pretty darned still and then also you know the one of the neat things as the newer cameras. The sensor picks up more than your. I can see what the twenty second exposure. So you are always seeing more stars than than the naked eye. And it's interesting you mention north because the core of the milky way is always to the south of us so that's a southern south south eastern exposure. And i kind of laugh at that. Because i've seen some photos where i know the landscape where it will show the milky way a mountain range and i know the person is looking true north. And it's a photo mosaic. As the milky way doesn't shine in the north of there inserting the milky way on north facing shot. Always you can always tell when somebody's buggering it up but yeah. I love just being out at night. I actually have a time lapse a four hour time lapse of the milky way as it moves across the sky in this image and i. I forgot my little interval timer. I was just going to go to sleep. And let the timer do the work But anyway i stood there for four hours every twenty seconds pushing the the shutter button. It was very zen allow loud that that is dedication for four hours. You feel like the guy from from lost in the cave at that point. Don't you having to hit hit. It enter and then so this last one to talk about is campbell creek alaska with a bunch of kids running to you in the snow and is some pretty serious heavy snow. Coming down. As as you would hope in alaska. It looks like their parents are following along behind. How how did this one come about. And yeah just give me the story behind it because there is so much joy in this photo. Yeah there you know. It took me a while. I used to do almost exclusively landscapes and then everyone starts. We need to get more people in your photos. So in general you'll notice my people photos off somebody standing looking out over landscape to give the landscape priority but in this case the kids were the focus so i wanted them to be having fun and and show the outdoors. They're they're having a good time in one thing. I've learned with kids as you know. Never tone the standstill. Give them something to do. And if you get them running. They're not they're always going to smile. You don't have to tell them anything. Just set him up to run towards the camera and in this case it was great because there was a sheet of ice under that thin layer of snow so those kids were going down like bowling pins every couple of seconds but they just bounce right back up and laugh even harder so it was..

"That'll tell you the asthma for the song elevation so i i just knew that it would be in that spot at totality and you could zoom then right on the sun but that shot could have been in portland or you know polka telo. Nobody would know so. I needed to get that landscape in there. The only way to do that was to have a teeny teeny son. So with the white angolans. Another landscape shot that that you you sent over that i had not seen before is from wyoming. And you call it pony express you've got you've got a writer on horseback cowboy hat iconic western shot with a sun break coming through some very dark clouds and you don't do a whole lot of shooting with people in it in your your regular beal and work. How did this one come about. Did you know you're going to have a horse and rider to work with that day. I did i actually. I've been really lucky in that. I've learned especially when i'm out at sunrise because nobody wants to get up at four in the morning. Go out i mean. You rarely will catch people randomly in the places on photographing so i usually have employees or volunteers or know mountain bike group or someone else come out when i wanna do People photography because it's just more like a plan for that so this this is actually a young lady who was what the pony express a rewrite group and And i was looking for a typical pony express rider and you know brown clothing and the rewrite group has he's big bright red vests on and And she was a young lady instead of a young guy who will most of the riders where some like. How am i going to make this look authentic and then the storm was brewing. So i started thinking. Well i need to come up with a way to make this look authentic so we just worked at. So i got a silhouette shot and just that forboding Storm cloud really gives the essence of what what does riders went through That's also very Non nondescript landscape in it's wide open sagebrush not a lot of landscape feature so That's always a good tip When when the landscape doesn't have a lot of features just work the skies best. You can you know i would Or matic or put a horse on it. Yeah so yeah getting those dramatic skies okay. Let's dive into night. Photography which i know is one of those things that folks really want to know how to do and you have one of the iconic shots from sonoran desert national monument round where i grew up in two song. You have so oros in in silhouette with the milky way between them and this is very wide because it looks like you've got some hills off to the side could even be a fish islands. You've got some movement in the star trails out on the edges. So i'm assuming we're must be looking pretty close to did north on this. How did you set this one up. How long a shot ally exposure to the end up taking and and how many tries did it take you to get this one the way you want it. Well that the others. There's all kinds of tutorials out there now on night sky photography. This is one of my earlier Shots but You know you basically have to ramp up your iso thankless was like thirty two hundred. The wider angle lenses can get a slower shutter speed and still capture the stars as point white. So in this case. I think with that particular lens i can go up to about twenty second exposures..

"Where i'm gonna be walking in cross country out you know 'cause there are no trails on a lot of vm lands. I usually am most careful for sunrise. Sunset shots to have as many options. As i can so if i have like a knoll or at least a spot where i can photograph into the sun photograph. Side lighting an end photograph away from the sun. That's that's optimal If i'm shooting in a canyon that's often the more difficult like a a north south canyon at sunrise is difficult. You know you get shadow on one side light on the other. So i'll use google to say. Oh yeah the river curves east west for this segment. I could probably stage over in this area and get some better sunrise. Sunset shot so just allows me to explore lighting angles at different times a day. And and and whether or not. I can get somewhere too with some of those sunrise. Sunset extreme dynamic range do you ever shoot. Hd year multiple exposures and stitching together later. Do you like to do just one shot. I do a mix of both. I probably use. Hdr shots i used a more in the past but now the arranges better with Were cameras but yeah. I'm in a harsh lighting situation. Just like i mentioned that canyons situation. Where half of its shadow. half of. its bright. I wanna pull out some of the details in in the the shadow area so yeah i will use hd for that. I do a lot of processing processing. Hdr because i think you can get some really You know non natural looking situations where you've removed too much shadow or it adds too much Our saturation so. I'll try to pull that back in light room to make it look though because naturals possible and i do manipulate all my photos. I- photography's the only are that people get upset when you go in and do something other than snap the shutter. And i always remind them. That ansel adams spent more time in the dark than he did snap his his shudder and he used filters and everything else i think we're photography's gotten a bad name or people that use photo mosaics or really you know over bake photos and that's fine. That's their choice. But it's everyone thinks everything's been photo shopped at sei shoot raw files which are very flat and choose to be a chef and make my own adjustments versus taken. What comes out of the camera. And i point out to folks that that the j. peg that comes out of your camera. Someone made a choice as to what that was going to look like and it was the programmers who programmed the j. peg algorithms to to make it look that way so you can decide to take that on yourself if you want so you talk about filters you've got this shot of the eclipse in idaho. This is a solar eclipse. is that right. that is yeah that that was the one..

"With your with like twenty four zero five or did you probably is like seventy two two hundred there. But i do remember there. Were few times where. I almost pulled back. More on the seventy and end the a lot just because they were maybe five ten close. Wow that's amazing So then i obviously it so it sounds like number one. You don't shoot with primes very often.

If you open up an elephant device you'll find a strip of paper like material called nitro cellulose and a small red pad hidden under the plastic casing below. The tea line absorbed to the red pad are antibodies that bind the cove in nineteen virus. They are also attached. To the gold nanoparticles. Tiny particles of gold actually appear red which allow us to see where the antibodies are on the device. When you do a test you mix your sample with liquid buffer solution ensuring the sample stays at an optimum ph before dropping it on the strip the fluid wicks up the nitra cellular strip and picks up the golden antibodies the latter also bind the virus if present further up the strip to the t. For test are more. Antibodies that bind the virus. These antibodies are not free to move. They're stuck to the nitro cellulose as the red smear of gold labeled.

Why Marketing & Dev Need Each Other With Jennie Larsen
"Were them. Simplify is yeah and what you guys do in about. Your older developments simplified is a full development company. The thing they do most is custom development fast product apps processes back in so they do custom coding and they do a lot of websites as well. But not so much wordpress sites or wicks type sites. These are sites where people need something very specific or they want a very specific customer journey or something interactive that you have to have custom coding written for and so i actually approached. My brother is one of the owners. He's owners with two other people. And i approached him and said you know it just makes sense to me that you guys would offer marketing solutions. Because you're a developer. Usually if someone is getting a product developed they actually did take that product to the market and so that kind of how that whole journey started. And i was about four years ago and since then we've just become a real powerhouse team between marketing and development. We've realized i brought in marketing. Customers that needed development and development has brought in customers that needed marketing. And so we've actually created this really cool powerhouse team. Between the two companies we used to just be development simplified now. We have marketing simplified. They are two separate companies but working under the same. We work in the same office. We have two offices that we have two teams and yes so it was a four year journey. We just the benefit to that has just been massive in. It's just the development beads. The marketing the marketing deeds development end the customers just really benefit from that relationship.

Healing Hormone Imbalance (Without Hormone Replacement) With Dr. Deb Matthew
"After matthew. I'm excited to have you on this day. In if you put it was a little bit of background about you are and what got you doing the work. You're doing sure thanks for having me. It's great to be here when i first graduated from medical school. I actually trained as a pediatrician. And i was perfectly happy thinking that i knew everything you know. They taught me everything. I needed a medical school in my own personal life. I didn't feel good. I was exhausted like the most important task of my day was to find a way to have a nap nan. I was irritable. I was flying off the handle at my kids. My poor is the one that bore the brunt of my wicked witch of the west impersonation. He just really honestly didn't know what to do with me. Half the time. And i knew that something was wrong like i knew that how i felt wasn't normal but nothing in my medical training helped me to really understand what was wrong with me. I wasn't depressed but yet something was wrong. And as my husband came across a book that was written by suzanne somers and it was called the sexy years and when he kind of flipped through that book he saw all kinds of things that reminded him of me and he brought the book home and my first reaction was like. You've got to be kidding me. Suzanne somers like christy snow thigh master. But i knew that we had a problem. It was affecting our marriage. It was affecting my kids. It was affecting my job at work and so i read the book and i gotta tell you that book has completely changed my entire life because when i read the stories of the women in the book who were just like me and how much better. They felt when they got their hormones back in balanced. It really allowed me to open my mind and allowed me to find that there were places that i could go to learn this whole new approach to health and wellness that i didn't even know existed and so as a result i was able to get my energy back. Mccain's got their mom back. My husband got his wife back. I got my life back. But i could not go back to what i was doing before just spending my whole day. Writing prescriptions because most of the time those prescriptions are of just putting a band aid on your symptoms. They're not really getting to the root cause of the problem and making people well.
Life Coach Victoria Albina Gives Tips To Deal With Burnout
"How does one go about treating burn out. And can you do it on your own or should you always seek out professional assistance. I mean the ladders challenging one right because as as a license healthcare provider. Of course. I i need to save. Please visit your primary care provider and having been a primary care provider. I know that you're not gonna get much help there. So i've met my legal and ethical duty. But i also know like it's where where's it gonna get you right. They're not gonna do the complex adrenal testing that functional medicine holistic provider might So if that is within your financial capacity to go to functional medicine to go to a holistic healthcare provider to go to acupuncture to go to bodywork would recommend those things in addition to talking with a counselor therapist coach. Right someone who is focused on helping you to understand the complexity of what burn out really looks like then of course let us note the irony here right if you're feeling wicked burned out.

One of the pandemic has been horrifying of course particularly for black and brown folks. Low income folks. But what's been phenomenal about. The pandemic is the shift. That's how a health and the fact that now so much more is available from your living room. So i do want to remind folks that maybe the part isn't part of it so consider maybe that does it need to be a barrier to care and i think it's important for us to recognize that it takes a big person to say. Okay yell i am not well. I write hired. I m out like that's step number one and then loving yourself enough perhaps or wanting to give yourself the grace of the compassion that you deserve to then say okay. I am going to take responsibility here and do something about it because in the moment that i you know step like figuring out what you're gonna do here that can certainly be overwhelming but when you take a step back and you think about the benefits that will come hand in hand with you doing something for yourself with you getting willing to step outside of that comfort zone. Make a change. That's going to impact this extreme level of bernau. That's worth it in the long

"The boss is helping bring back the lights of Broadway after being shut down for more than a year because of the pandemic, New York's theater district reopened with Bruce Springsteen on stage and NPR's Gile Snyder reports, Springsteen fans were ready. Fans lined up outside the ST James Theatre to see Bruce Springsteen kick off a 30 performance update of his solo show from 2017. Eastern Jordan was among them. It means a lot because it's history and people are going to get back to Broadway, people will come back to New York City and This is my city, and I'm thrilled that Bruce has decided to lead the charge back to Broadway. The Springsteen concert was the first show on a Broadway stage and 471 days, the longest shutdown in Broadway history. Other major productions are set to start up again in September, including Hamilton Wicked and The Lion King. The Springsteen Show did attract protesters angry that only people who have had an FDA or W H O approved vaccine were allowed to attend. Trial. Snyder NPR

May God Be Glorified (Psalm 74:22)
"Some chapter seventy four verse. Twenty two arise o. God defend your cause. Remember how the foolish scoff at you all day. So this this psalm is an interesting follow up to psalm. Seventy three which we prayed through yesterday. So psalm seventy three talked about the prosperity of the wicked and the psalmist found refuge comfort in the fact that he could be near god that we are near god. He loves us and leads us and guides us. And then you get to psalm. Seventy four and you see a similar depiction of the injustice of the world the prosperity of the wicked and specifically even the prosperity of those who scoff at god the success so to speak in the world of people who mock god who are enemies of god and who hurt gods people in different ways and in this psalm. We hear this theme. it's encapsulated really in verse. Twenty two arise. Oh god defend your cause remember how the foolish scoff at you all the day and other words yes. It is right in assam. Seventy three kind of way. Just to find refuge in god personally in a world where the wicked prosper in different ways and it is good to call out to god for him to show his justice and him to show his glory and him to show his righteous rule and reign in the world to bring an end to injustice to bring an end to scoffing at his name to bring an end ultimately to injustice in the world.
Education and Incubation of Nurse-led Innovation
"So talk to us about your organization. How are you guys adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. And what you do. Today you are so at ten nursing. We really have been systematically they knew about how to integrate innovation into the curriculum and beyond for our nursing students faculty and staff and so it starts out obviously with education and we've started creating courses around innovation. Health foundation's of design thinking. That is our one course as well as how we integrate these types of wor ses and information into other classes and the curriculum throughout penn nursing so though we teach one class i say it all the time one class is not make an innovation program or infrastructure and so looking at from undergrad. All the way through to the doctoral level how we can infuse this knowledge. These skill sets for our students and then on a extra curricular side how we can also have. Our students engage in some of these programs. That also teach you not just from classroom perspective but from a hands on active learning perspective about innovation and design thinking in how it's used in health and healthcare so whether that's through our penn nursing innovation accelerator program weren't urging students to join events like the nurse. Hack for house. All these things are being integrated into the infrastructure of what we're doing at penn nursing to host educate our students with knowledge but also provide them with the skills tools and resources to take that knowledge and move it forward again in whatever place they practice. That's fantastic and you know. It is critical marianne. And it's so great to hear you say this that this type of curriculum be embedded that we integrate innovation that we integrate technology into the curriculum. Because it has been lacking for a long time. So i love that. You guys are embedding it into it. Yeah we really are trying to think about it in that way and we really do want in all the courses that were teaching our students to just think differently and that's really what design thinking innovation human center design is about. it's a different mindset in house and healthcare these days. there's no denying we have a plethora of wicked problems that need to be solved and we need to start thinking differently about how we're solving them and we can only do that. If we start to teach our students how to think more creatively in different ways including what we're teaching around innovation and design thinking. It's not that we want to exclude any other ways of learning and solving problems. This is just one more tool in the toolkit

Now I did the same thing I- adult. I had a lady that read a read through my book and she came back and told me she was like I really enjoyed it. She's like there was just one thing that just kept hitting me through the whole story and it's about Sebastian's father passing away and she was like it was a very sudden mysterious illness. She goes I kept waiting and kept waiting for you to elaborate on that on what it actually was that killed him but you never did and I was like I didn't. Like. Oh. So I'd eat out that because I thought. For me it's in my head. Some thinking I put that down I know I did right and I think sometimes if you're. Writing over weeks and months you forget what's in there? What's in your head what you've changed? Sometimes escapes you and you don't realize it. Not at all I, mean I before a sit down and start writing I. always go back to the beginning of last. Chapter I've worked on and just reread through that just. So I kind of okay. This is where I'm at right now. Right. So. Shift gears just a little bit. What authors or books have inspired you or what are some of your favorite authors in books outside I mean obviously, you know it's going to be the same as my my movie interests I love.

She'd love to see some clicks and some people with her book. Enjoy. All right well, BECCA welcome. Thank you I. Appreciate you taking some time to talk with me today on the podcast. ALP You're having a great day so far looks like a good weekend coming up. It's great to be here. Thank you. So tell us a little bit about yourself outside of writing what you like to do. A little bit about who you are Awesome. Okay. Well, believe it or not besides writing. I work fulltime I'm a truck driver. So I mean not anything crazy. I don't drive like this big rig or anything, but I actually drive Kinda like A. Enlarged version of tow truck. So just transport vehicles all over the state of Oklahoma. It. It's. It's actually really fun. People always look at me. Crazy. Other than Dad I am a mom I've got two teenage boys, which is extremely as scary as it sounds. I'm married I have pets that I take care of other than all the domestic type things I I love music it. Did when I was younger, I played guitar I play drums I sang, and it's not something that I do a whole lot anymore just. Time constraints and whatnot I would love to start playing again but. It's funny because I was going to ask that because I've been finding a lot of authors also plays some sort of musical instrument seems the creativity needs to come out in multiple ways I definitely I mean. I. I have guitars that it basically hangs on my wall in my living room and it looks more like a decoration peace than it does anything which is really sad because. I got it a couple of years ago and I played a lot at first and then are just got busy with life and work and everything out him. My husband asked me not too long ago. He was just like, why do you still have that? You're never GONNA play? Maybe one day. Yeah. It's very difficult to get rid of instruments I play Bass and I pulled out my five string and I kept getting all messed up because I wasn't used to the five strings. A Heck I wasn't used to four strings anymore. Let them five how. I can't even imagine well, when I was younger I played bass so. Now. It's my electric guitar that I have I. was like I've got a relearn. All everything all over again. So at first I was like downloading. APPS and stuff like that to Kinda just relearn where all the notes were in. Were and then it just kind of went out the window I'm like one day. Maybe I. Don't know. We'll see what happens. But you just can't get rid of it. Yeah. I I feel the same way I ever get rid of instruments I mean my parents still have my band instruments from when I was in high school. I graduated in two thousand if that tells you how old I am. Well my four string bass is the base I bought my senior year of high school and that was eighty nine. There you go. That's pretty cool though they you still have it and that is. Well. Yes and it's amazing how well it stays in tune. Even through the years. So. Okay. So you're a truck driver and you've got a family and all that. Why did you decide you wanted to do some writing I you know I started writing when I was fourteen fifteen years old. and. High. School. I was kind of this angsty depressed teenager. Ordeal, like most are and I started writing poetry ally and. Actually, I was songwriting and music writing a lot in high school as well but I always had disliked crazy active imagination and. It wasn't until probably my mid twenties that I had this really wicked crazy dream. One night I woke up I was like that would be the coolest horn all novel ever. And so that's kind of weird book writing started though the novel is self published, but it's quite terrible because at it no doubt was doing but. Now I'm just the type of person that I can always sit down and watch like a movie or a TV show, and then my brain just start trailing off until its own little imaginary world how I could write something like that. Pretty crazy. Okay. So a lot of authors you have again, this creativity you needed to get out. Of The book of Yours, I found the heathen king. Tell us a little bit about that. What it's about what made you want to write it and they even king it is actually book. In a trilogy, that's it's called the chronicles of chaos. And this book is basically about. it's a it's a fantasy fiction in kind of like a medieval era it's not necessarily based in a real world type of location. But it's about a prince named Sebastian and he learns in the story that he is. Descended from ancient gods. So he is the Demi God chaos, which in the story is GonNa Fire and destruction. He's very angsty little. Sinister has terrible self. He's a loner he's got twelve siblings and it's it's just crazy wild adventure. The biggest twist at think in this medieval story is that this is Sebastian's gay. So that's not something that you see on a lot of stories set timeframe and. That causes a lot of. a big rift I guess like in his family and his lover's family and So. Sebastian's father gets really really ill and he passes on the crown of the throne to Sebastian rather than sessions older brother. than older brother goes crazy he gets. Just mad with hatred, jealousy turns to kill like his whole family. In Sebastian has to basically gets outcasted by his brother and he has to go in the learn about his powers and about you know how to stop being kind of. Selfish and stuck in his own head. On how to come back and save his family his kingdom. The? Story. Was Developed I watched game of thrones for the first time about two years ago I, watched the entire. Having seasons are eight. Yeah I think so. And I really fell in love with the story after about like season two and so story kind of like branched off from that minus dragons. And I know I was actually asking advice the other day for my sixteen year old on some of like the magic parts that I can put into my story because he does have these powers. And We were talking I.
