PodcastSteve's Radio Archives: 8/26/1976 Aircheck, Hidden Bobbie Gentry Songs in "Ode to Billy Joe" Movie

Sep 2, 2017 31:54

Description:

In 1976, Robbie Benson and Glynnis O'Connor starred in a movie version of the Bobbie Gentry folk classic, "Ode to Billy Joe." At the time of the movie's release, I was a student DJ at WMCX-FM at Monmouth University. I was also the "production engineer" for some basement tape recordings my dad made with a musical colleague from Fort Monmouth, NJ who happened to be Bobbie Gentry's brother. After one visit with his sister during which he shared the music tapes he and my dad recorded, he returned with a complete set of Bobbie Gentry albums for me.

Needless to say, I became very familiar with her music, and when I saw the movie, I was quite surprised by all the hidden references to her other songs in the movie. None of that got very much attention at the time, so I decided to do a radio show special focusing on the hidden references. That show aired August 26, 1976 and is shared here for the first time in podcast form.

Middle Chamber Books Podcast #44: "How Fast Can You Run," with Harriet Levin Millan

Sep 10, 2016 15:51

Description:

In this edition of the Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast, we speak with Harriet Levin Millan, a creative writing professor at Drexel University, whose first novel, How Fast Can You Run. A novel based on the life of Michael Majok Kuch, will be published October 28 by Harvard Square Editions. Millan is one of the local authors being showcased at the Katz Jewish Community Center in Cherry Hill on Tuesday, September 13 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. No tickets are needed for the local author showcase.

 

 

 At 7:30 p.m., New York Times best-selling author Jennifer Weiner will discuss her new book, a young adult novel. For tickets to Jennifer Weiner, visit katzjcc.org.

How Fast Can you Run is a novel that spans three continents and relates the story of people affected by genocide. This story also includes what happens when its protagonist is resettled in America and faces discrimination. The novel follows five-year-old "Lost Boy" of Sudan Michael Majok Kuch as he gets separated from his mother, escaping their burning village in the middle of the night, to his thousand mile trek, barefoot and naked, across war zones and wilderness, to a series of refugee camps where he lives for the next ten years. In 2000, he, along with approximately 4,000 other unaccompanied minors, is selected for political asylum in the U.S., where he is eager to use America’s resources—internet, telephone and postal services—to continue his search for his mother. His new life in America is not without trauma. He attends high school, and afterwards, a mostly white college, where another student falsely accuses him of sexual assault.

Millan, who holds a MFA from the University of Iowa Writers Workshop, is a prizewinning poet and writer. For the past three years, she has brought Drexel undergraduate creative writing  students to the PEN center outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti for a week-long writing trip. She teaches creative writing and directs the Certificate Program in Writing and Publishing in the English Department at Drexel University, and she lives outside Philadelphia with her husband.

 

JSA2016-20: Sociology of Aging, Thomas Cole Ph.D.

Sep 9, 2016 26:12

Description:

The September 9, 2016 Jewish Sacred Aging podcast features a rebroadcast of Rabbi Address' interview with Thomas Cole, Ph.D., Director, McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics and McGovern Chair in Medical Humanities at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) on the sociology of aging.

About the Guest

Thomas Cole Ph.D. Thomas Cole Ph.D.

Dr. Cole has published many articles and books on the history of aging and humanistic gerontology. His book The Journey of Life: A Cultural History of Aging in America (Cambridge University Press, 1992) was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. He is senior editor of What Does It Mean to Grow Old? (Duke, 1986), the Handbook of Humanities and Aging (Springer, 1992; 2nd edition, 1999), and Voices and Visions: Toward a Critical Gerontology (Springer, 1993). Other co-edited books include The Oxford Book of Aging (noted by the New Yorker as one of the most memorable books of 1995) and Guide to Humanistic Studies in Aging: What Does It Mean to Grow Old? (Johns Hopkins U Press, 2010).

Biography and Civil Rights Film

Cole’s interest in the life stories of older people has taken him into biography and film-making. In 1984, he encountered a hospitalized psychiatric patient who claimed he was the “original Texas integration leader.” Their collaboration resulted in a book—No Color Is My Kind: The Life of Eldrewey Stearns and the Desegregation of Houston (University of Texas Press, 1997)—and an accompanying film, The Strange Demise of Jim Crow, broadcast nationally on over 60 PBS stations and internationally by the State Department. The documentary received numerous awards and was nominated for a regional Emmy and a National Humanities Medal.

Medical Humanities Writing and Films

Cole’s film, Still Life: The Humanity of Anatomy, was an official selection at the Doubletake Documentary Film Festival in April 2002. This work explores the special yet unstated relationship between medical students in the anatomy lab and the people who donate their bodies for dissection. In 2001, Cole’s writing workshop programs for elders was featured in the PBS documentary Life Stories. In 2007, he co-produced Living with Stroke, a prize-winning film about the invisible world of stroke survivors. Cole is senior editor of the book Faculty Health in Academic Medicine: Physicians, Scientists and the Pressures of Success (Humana, 2009), which explores the impact of the spiritual and economic crises facing academic health centers today. Other collaborative books include: The Brewsters, an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure fictional text in health care ethics (UTHealth, 2011) and, with Nathan Carlin and Ron Carson, Medical Humanities: An Introduction (Cambridge University Press, 2014).

Cole’s work has been featured in the New York Times, National Public Radio, Voice of America, PBS, and at the United Nations. He has served as an advisor to the United Nations NGO Committee on Aging, the Union for Reform Judaism and various editorial and foundation boards. In 2004-2005, he served as a consultant to the President’s Council on Bioethics project on aging and was featured speaker at the AARP/United Nations Briefing Sessions on Aging in February 2009.

His current project is A Country for Old Men, a book exploring the lives, ideas, and identities of contemporary male elders.

The Hoftiezers have five grandchildren and four children, all of whom were born in Minnesota, but now live in four different states.

SpectorAlanAlan Spector retired from a 33-year career with the Procter & Gamble Company in 2002, as Director of Worldwide Quality Assurance, and he began “practicing retirement” five years before that.

Al has written and published five books (www.aaspector.com), as well as numerous magazine and newspaper articles, and he is working on books six and seven. He also does strategic planning and quality assurance consulting for companies and non-profits, works out daily, is an avid crossword solver, is an active community volunteer, leads a mentoring program at the high school from which he graduated, and has sat on several boards. Al and his wife, Ann, returned "home" to St. Louis in mid-2009, having been away from their hometown for more than 40 years. They travel widely and enjoy their four grandchildren.

Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast 2016-12: Rabbi Dr. David Teutsch, director of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Seminar's Center for Jewish Ethics

Jun 3, 2016 23:13

Description:

On the June 3, 2016 edition of the Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast, Rabbi Address speaks with Rabbi David Teutsch Ph.D., director of the Center for Jewish Ethics at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Wynnewood, PA.

Rabbi David Teutsch, Ph.D. is a man in motion, a multi-tasker with many interests. Trained as a rabbi, he earned his doctorate from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania; is past president of RRC; and currently leads RRC's Center for Jewish Ethics. Teutsch has spearheaded several projects devoted to Jewish leadership and its ethical basis in Jewish texts. His 2009 book, Making a Difference: A Guide to Jewish Leadership and Not-for-Profit Management, was based on a 15-month training program he led in Baltimore for future Jewish organizational presidents; the program, called Acharai!, combined course material on nonprofit management with lessons from Jewish texts on leadership and values. "To be a Jewish leader (as opposed to just a leader in a Jewish organization or a leader who just so happens to be Jewish) means to act like a mensch," Teutsch says. "It means you must guide by Jewish virtues and values, including integrity, courage, humility, gentleness and empathy. "Especially in these tough economic times, congregational and organizational leaders--whether staff or volunteer--should ask themselves: If everyone acted as I do, would the organization be a success? Would it help to build relationships and community? Would the Jewish community's commitments to Jewish learning, spirituality and social justice be what I would like them to be?" Looking back on Acharai!, Teutsch recalls a class in which he discussed the nuances of exercising power, authenticity and leadership. To make the discussion accessible to participants, he described the implications of the biblical story of Gideon, who, against all odds, succeeded as a military leader and then decided not to become king. The lesson: Good leadership is different from self-aggrandizement. "Ultimately, the goal is to integrate Jewish values and text with a sophisticated approach to leadership in the nonprofit environment," Teutsch says.

Boomer Generation Radio, WWDB-AM 860, 05/31/2016: A conversation with Dr. Dan Gottlieb

Jun 1, 2016 57:16

Description:

Nationally known author, psychologist, and radio show host Dr. Dan Gottlieb is the guest on the May 31, 2016 edition of Boomer Generation Radio, to discuss the broad topic of love. Dan Gottlieb began his practice in 1969 after receiving undergraduate and graduate degrees at Temple University. As a young psychologist, his early career specialized in addictions where he ultimately was the director of a community based treatment program at Belmont Institute in Philadelphia. At the time he was director of two outpatient clinics and one inpatient unit supervising over 30 staff. He was also a graduate of the highly respected Family Institute of Philadelphia, a program that later elected him as president. img_about_dan720x400During this time he became a highly respected clinician, teacher and supervisor of psychiatrists, psychologists and clinical social workers. He taught at Hahnemann University and consulted with many other faculty members throughout the region. Personally, he was happily married and had loved being a father to his young daughters. However, his early successes were tragically interrupted. In 1979 Dan was in a near fatal automobile accident which left him paralyzed from the chest down. As expected, there were years of despair and depression. He experienced loss on top of loss as his wife left the marriage and passed away several years later. And in the ensuing years he mourned the loss of his sister and his parents. And for the last three decades, he has been observing life with passion and discussion and learning valuable lessons about what it means to be human and how adversity can teach us how to live better and love better. Despite this adversity, he resumed his private practice which was to grow substantially over the next several decades. In addition to his practice, he has continued to lecture, train and supervise a variety of healthcare professionals. Since 1985, Daniel Gottlieb has been hosting “Voices in the Family,” an award-winning mental health call-in radio show aired on WHYY 90.9 FM, Philadelphia’s local public radio station. From 1993 until 2008, he wrote a highly regarded column for the Philadelphia Inquirer titled: “Inside Out,” reflecting his perspective on the intersection of the events in our world and the events in our minds and hearts. He has also published four books, including the international bestseller: Letters to Sam: A Grandfather’s Lessons on Love, Loss, and the Gifts of Life. His newest book, The Wisdom We’re Born With: Restoring Faith in Ourselves, was released in March, to rave reviews from mental health professionals around the country. All of his royalties will be donated to the Khulani school for disabled children in South Africa. In addition to his writing and radio show, he delivered over 1000 lectures all over the world on a variety of topics affecting the well-being of people, families and the larger community. The essence of his philosophy can be found on his business card. After his name there are no degrees and no fancy titles. His card simply says “Gottlieb. Human.” Through personal and professional experience, Dan has learned that our greatest suffering is alienation and loneliness. That is these powerful emotions can produce prejudice, hatred, violence, withdrawal and depression. He has learned that all humans long for human contact, compassion and understanding. And without compassion, our spirits wither. When asked to summarize his life’s work, he says simply: “I teach kindness.”

Transwestern: Surveying GenX-ers, ‘Neglected Middle Child’ In The Workplace

May 19, 2016 19:53

Description:

Matthew Dolly, Research Director, Transwestern Matthew Dolly, Research Director, Transwestern

PARSIPPANY, NJ—Members of Generation X, those born from 1965 to 1980, “the neglected middle child” in offices that also contain Baby Boomers and Millennials, are more like their Boomer predecessors than the younger Millennials, a recent Transwestern report discovered.

The development, real estate investment management and research firm explored the generational preferences of office employees in a recent survey of its own workers organized by New Jersey research director Matthew Dolly.

“I came up with the idea last summer,” Dolly tells GlobeSt.com exclusively. “You’re always reading about Millennials, you have the Baby Boomers, who for the most part built up the office market. But you never read about Gen X, because they were a smaller generation and they were only the largest part of the workforce for a few years.”

Gen Xers are between 35 and 50, and in the next 20 years will be 55-70, Dolly says.

“We’re going to be the executives, we’re going to make the decisions, so right now we have to work with the Baby Boomers and with the Millennials, their children behind them,” he says, noting that he falls squarely in the middle of the Gen X demographic.

The research and commentary, titled “The Gen X Factor: Stuck in the Middle or Best of Both Worlds?” compares the responses of 273 Transwestern team members classified as Baby Boomers (born 1946 – 1964), Gen Xers (born 1965 – 1980) and Millennials (born 1980 – 1998).

Many developers have skipped from what Baby Boomers wanted and expected in office arrangements directly to what Millennials want, such as urban live-work-play locations, Dolly says. But Gen Xers enjoy a mix of office designs and locations, his research shows.

“They did like the option of a private workspace and abundant light, not as many used mass transit as the millennials, but Gen Xers and Baby Boomers prefer the suburbs,” he says. Gen Xers like flexible work hours with some structure, he adds.

In nearly all cases, the responses of Gen Xers fall somewhere between Baby Boomers and Millennials, highlighting the unique blend of views this generation possesses – a mix of seasoned experience and savvy thinking that was the fortuitous byproduct of being sandwiched between two large generations.

“Although Millennials are now the largest segment of the US labor force, companies that value workforce diversity benefit from a broader range of ideas and experiences,” says Dolly. “At the same time, while it is easy to create divisions between age groups, we found that there are just as many commonalities as differences between these three influential generations.”

You can hear a podcast of GlobeSt.com’s conversation with Matt Dolly in the player below.

Some of the survey’s findings include the following:

Flexibility is highly valued by all generations, with only 11 percent of total respondents favoring mandatory “9 to 5” hours in the workplace. Across all groups, flex hours – characterized by an alternative, yet defined schedule – is preferred over no set hours, with Generation X voicing the strongest preference for this type of flexibility. All generations agree that there is a high correlation between work environment and productivity. When it comes to the amenities that contribute to a comfortable environment, privacy and abundant light ranked No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, for every group of respondents. Open offices, or “hoteling,” was viewed most favorably by Millennials, while private offices received the most votes from Baby Boomers. However, in total and by generation, respondents overwhelmingly prefer a mix of private and open office space. The preference for downtown living more than tripled between Baby Boomers and Millennials, at 19 percent and 64 percent, respectively. The importance of social media to professional life is inversely related to age: only 4 percent of Baby Boomers feel that social media is very important, compared to 7 percent of Gen Xers and 20 percent of Millennials. Of the Generation X respondents, 56 percent reported that they identify more strongly with Baby Boomers, and 44 percent reported that they identify more strongly with Millennials. This gives Gen Xers, as a whole, a broad perspective of the wants and needs of today’s workforce.

“Because of their age and experience, Gen Xers are often a natural fit for leadership positions,” Dolly said. “This group is equipped to bring proven skills and thoughtful creativity that enables all generations to make valuable contributions and positions the organization to excel.”

JSA Podcast 2016-5: Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow and the Deathbed Wisdom of the Chassidic Masters

Apr 1, 2016 24:41

Description:

In this Jewish Sacred Aging podcast, Rabbi Address chats with Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow, the Director of Religious and Chaplaincy Services at Hebrew SeniorLife. Rabbi Paasche-Orlow , with Rabbi Joel H. Baron, translated and annotated the new book, Deathbed Wisdom of the Chassidic Masters: The Book of Departure and Caring for People at the End of Life. The book will be released this spring by Jewish Lights Publishing. From the book's web page comes this description of their work:

Translators and annotators Joel H Baron and Sara Paasche-Orlow, both rabbis and Jewish chaplains, use their clinical pastoral education training, rabbinic knowledge and experiences working with people in hospice and hospital care to draw insights and suggest helpful teachings from these stories. In a unique facing-page format, they approach the end-of-life stories of these rabbis as narrative theology, bringing their own experiences into conversation with those of the Hasidic masters and of their biblical, rabbinic and intellectual forebears.

By following the pathways into the texts to which the stories refer, and by extracting modern pastoral lessons, Rabbis Baron and Paasche-Orlow help caregivers and chaplains of all kinds make Jewish meaning out of the experience of caring for others at the end of life.

About Rabbi Paasche-Orlow

Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow

Rabbi Paasche-Orlow established the nation's only Jewish geriatric clinical pastoral education (CPE) program accredited by ACPE, Inc. and has placed chaplains and CPE students throughout the HSL system.

Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast 2016-4: Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell, spiritual director

Mar 25, 2016 11:10

Description:

In this episode of the Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast, Rabbi Address chats with Rabbi Sue Levi Elwell, Ph.D., a Philadelphia-based spiritual director and editor of the new book, Chapters of the Heart: Jewish Women Sharing the Torah of Our Lives.  This podcast is adapted from a video conversation with Rabbi Levi Elwell held last year.

From the book's introduction:

We asked a group of Jewish women to tell us the truth about their lives and to do so with a few Jewish words. We, two rabbis who love both Jewish words and talking with other women about the truth of their lives, rounded up some friends who are professionals in the Jewish "word business"—rabbis, scholars, writers, theologians. We asked each woman to open her heart, to delve into her considerable Jewish vocabulary, and to tell us what she found. They, and we, are not beginners; we are almost all over fifty, and many of us a decade or two more. Nevertheless, like everyone else, when it comes to our own lives, we are still trying to figure out how to live with grace. And each of us, in our own way, is still exploring what it all means. Our stories are not ours alone. Reading them, you may recognize yourself or someone you know.

For more information, visit the Chapters of the Heart website.

BGR 3/8/16: Rabbi Mordechai Liebling on Environmentalism and Social Action; Actor/Motivational Speaker Michael Lyons on Boomer Reinvention

On the March 8, 2016 Boomer Generation Radio show, Rabbi Address welcomes Rabbi Mordechai E. Liebling, director of the newly created Social Justice Organizing Program at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College (RRC). In the second half of the program, the guest is Michael Lyons, professional actor and motivational speaker.

About the Guests

Rabbi Mordechai E. Liebling Rabbi Mordechai E. Liebling

Rabbi Mordechai E. Liebling

Rabbi Mordechai Liebling has worked throughout his career toward tikkun olam, repair of the world. He is the first to direct RRC's unique Social Justice Organizing Program; he leads the College's initiative to invest rabbinical students with the clarity of purpose, vision and voice to become uniquely effective, spiritually strong leaders in the drive toward social justice and environmental sustainability.   Through his own experience, Liebling came to realize that spiritual leaders hold unique power to demonstrate and inspire ethical choices, and to lead a pursuit of justice fueled by caring rather than rage. Most recently he served as the executive vice president of Jewish Funds for Justice; prior to that organization’s merger with The Shefa Fund, he held the title Torah of Money Director at TSF, providing guidance to help people apply Jewish laws and values to how they spend, invest and donate. For 12 years he was the executive director of the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation, and he later served there as senior consultant. Before entering the rabbinical program at RRC, he worked as a community organizer.   Liebling was a member of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations for 12 years. He has served on the boards of various national and international non-profit organizations; currently he serves on the boards of the Faith and Politics Institute and Rabbis for Human Rights-North America. Liebling also is the president emeritus of the Shalom Center.   He has received awards from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association, the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility and Mazon. Liebling also has spoken out for justice for people with disabilities, and his family was the subject of the award-winning documentary film Praying With Lior.   He holds a Bachelor of Arts in government from Cornell University and Master of Arts in the history of American civilization, specializing in American progressive movements, from Brandeis University. Liebling is a 1985 graduate of RRC.   He has published articles in many publications, including Tikkun, Israel Horizons, Jewish Currents and The Reconstructionist.   Michael Lyons Michael Lyons

Mike’s eclectic background began as a child while living in Paris, France. He appeared in commercials and the film "Paris When It Sizzles" with Tony Curtis, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden, and also did dubbing for French and English movies using his bi-lingual ability.  Upon his return to the U.S. in the mid-Sixties, he performed in the theater in a variety of roles while also working on the stage crew of the Valley Forge Music Fair - a professional theater located outside Philadelphia, rubbing shoulders with entertainment legends such as Gordon MacRae, Carol Lawrence, and Chita Rivera.

After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, he went to work in the business world, bypassing the opportunity to pursue a vocation in the entertainment industry. Fifteen years later while working in New York City, he resurrected his dormant acting career and landed a national TV commercial for "Honey Bunches of Oats" cereal. From there he joined SAG (Screen Actors Guild) and began to book commercials, TV roles and other jobs on a regular basis including "All My Children" and an Advil commercial that ran on national television for 4 years. All the while, he kept his "day job" as a well-respected expert in the travel/meetings industry. Over the years, he has worked in New York city, Norwalk, CT, Philadelphia, Columbus, OH, and Minneapolis; and his travels have taken him to 32 foreign countries, 43 U.S. states and 76 of the top 100 U.S. cities.

As an actor, he has dozens of credits in films, TV shows, commercials and more than 350 live appearances on home shopping network QVC as a product host. His roles have included speaking parts in “The Sixth Sense”, “All My Children, “Veep”, “What Would You Do”,  “Arrest & Trial”, and "Outsiders", among others. He can also be seen in the popular Netflix series “House of Cards” playing the Speaker of the House in Season 4, Episode 2.  Mike also enjoys performing as a singer and has produced a CD of his own renditions of classic Frank Sinatra songs.As a professional motivational speaker, he has given talks to numerous groups over the past few years on how to achieve goals, pursue your passion, and enhance your personal brand. He has authored a number of articles in both travel industry trade journals as well as consumer magazines, and is frequently sought out by the media as one of the experts in the meetings & events industry.A resident of suburban Philadelphia, he has been married to his lovely wife Lorie for 42 years. They are the parents of Mike Jr. (Krista), Erin Oosthuizen (Simon) and Aimee, and proud grandparents of seven beautiful children: Ella, Caitlin, Jesse, Ansley, Joshua, Avery and Logan.

CompuSchmooze February 2016: Clammr lets you tweet short audio clips

Feb 5, 2016 20:35

Description:

Editor's Note: The audio podcast is now available

How often do you want to share with friends what you just heard in an audio news story or podcast? Would you want to send them a short snippet of the audio and a link where they could hear more?

Now, you can do just that with a recently introduced app called Clammr (clammr.com). There is an iPhone app ready and you can sign up to be notified when the Android app launches.

The concept is the brainchild of Parviz Parvizi and his partner David Silverman.

“We created Clammr as a process of bridging audio into social media,” Parvizi said in an interview. “One of the things that we observed is that social media is now where people find things to consume, it is the primary driver of traffic to websites, but audio really isn’t present on social media.”

One reason for that is that audio podcasts are usually 20 minutes in length, and are “hard to penetrate,” Parvizi says.

“If you actually shrink the unit size down, that makes it more appropriate for consumption and engagement on social media,” he says.

Parvizi and his Clammr co-founder David Silverman got the idea because both of them discovered they were auditory learners when they met in law school.

“We were in the same small group, and we figured out pretty quickly that we were among the slowest readers in the history of our law school,” Parvizi recalled. “We bonded very quickly over that.”

The pair began exchanging audio clips through shared folders, or text messages containing timestamps for particular audio excerpts.

It was Silverman, Parvizi says, who came up with the idea of being able to “tweet audio.”

You can record a Clammr from either the website or from the smartphone app. It can’t be longer than 24 seconds. When you share it via social media, the sound clip will have a link back to the original source, so if you send out a clip from a longer podcast, your followers can go back to the full program to listen.

You can look up podcasts in the Apple iTunes Store, and select portions of a program to convert into a Clammr. The Clammr app and website include a browser-based audio editor that can be manipulated with finger swipes on the phone to create the short clip.

“I think it’s very human to want to share with the community and get feedback from that community,” says Parvizi, noting that in the 200,000 years that modern humans have been around, only about five percent of that time has included the use of written text. “In a lot of ways, we’re wired to speak and listen and do goofy things visually.

The ability to record a Clammr live from a smartphone also offers an additional way for citizen journalists to deliver live reports from the scene of an event. It’s a bit of a challenge to hold your commentary under 24 seconds, but it can be done.

The app lets you listen to Clammrs from people you follow as an unending stream, and it’s actually an interesting way of catching up quickly. I listened to the NPR stream of Clammrs, and it almost seemed like it was just a shorter version of the Morning Edition Show that was just reporting the headlines.

I’ve used Clammr to create short teasers for news stories I’m reporting on the commercial real estate news website GlobeSt.com, and picked up about 30 listeners for each short audio program. You can hear my efforts at http://www.clammr.com/app/podcaststeve.

With a bit of perseverance, it could be a great way for podcasters, journalists, and other content creators to promote their products.

What kinds of audio would you share with your friends? Email steve@compuschmooze.com. On Twitter, Clammr, or Periscope, follow @PodcastSteve. Also, listen to an audio podcast interview with Parviz Parvizi of Clammr at http://bit.ly/compuschmooze.

Net Tuesday, 7/7/2015: Designing Experiences in the Nonprofit World

Jan 12, 2016 01:16:36

Description:

With a deep desire to create the most impact, yet bound within the limits of stretched resources, many nonprofits feel they have no agency in creative processes -- or any ability to leverage design sensibilities while trying to provide social value in their work.

This month, Phillip Le (senior experience designer at Think Brownstone and former chair of PhillyCHI) joined us to address these issues. In his talk, he'll discuss how, by reframing our thinking, nonprofits can use design processes to work alongside their constituents to create meaningful experiences to best help those we serve.

This is the fourth event in our series, "Elements of a Successful Nonprofit Website."

About the Guests

Dr. Alan SteinfeldDr. Alan Steinfeld, an oncologist who was on the faculty of the School of Medicine at New York University, retired in his mid-50s to pursue his interests in genealogy and gardening. “I wanted the time to get things done while I had the physical strength, the mental strength, to do it. I actually stopped working full-time at age 54, worked for another year or two part-time, and then stopped completely,” he says.

“In retirement, I have been deeply involved with two activities. One is genealogy. As an avid amateur genealogist for the past almost 40 years, I have used my retirement years to advance research into my family, teach the subject on various levels and use my knowledge to assist other groups (e.g, Dobbs Ferry Historical Society and the Village of Scarsdale),” he says. “I have also been a gardener for many decades. In retirement, I became a volunteer at the New York Botanical Garden. After leading tours for a number of years and working in the greenhouses, I moved to the library about 8 years ago, where I have cataloged a number of specialty collections.”

In the second half of the show, Dr. Ellen Langer, a social psychologist from Harvard University discusses mindfulness.

About the Guests

Stefanie Levine CohenStefanie Levine Cohen

Stefanie Levine Cohen studies and writes about birth, death, afterlife and the human condition.  Her stories explore moments of transition in characters’ lives and focus particularly on the intersection between the psychological and the spiritual. How does a person reconcile the need to understand his or her place in the universe with the tug of that person’s emotional truth? Themes of parenting, aging, loss and self-discovery recur throughout her stories and resonate with readers at many stages of life. Stefanie is a long-time member of the Rittenhouse Writers Group in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded and facilitated by James Rahn. She has also attended the Taos Summer Writers’ Conference and numerous workshops, studying with teachers including Jonis Agee, Sylvia Boorstein, Joan Borysenko, Deepak Chopra, Stephen Cope, Gordon Dveirin, John Perkins, Rabbi Rami Shapiro and James Van Praague. Her work has been published in  Amarillo Bay, ginosko, Green Hills Literary Lantern, The MacGuffin, The Montreal Review, and Storyscape Journal.

Dr. Ellen LangerDr. Ellen Langer

Dr. Ellen Langer, Ph.D., is a social psychologist and the first female professor to gain tenure in the Psychology Department at Harvard University. She is the author of eleven books and more than two hundred research articles written for general and academic readers on mindfulness for over 35 years. Her best selling books include Mindfulness; The Power of Mindful Learning; On Becoming an Artist: Reinventing Yourself Through Mindful Creativity; and Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility. Her most recent book, the Wiley Mindfulness Handbook, is an anthology on mindfulness in which leading researchers integrate work derived from her western scientific theoretical base of mindfulness with research on eastern derived forms of meditation. It will be published in early 2014.  Dr. Langer has been described as the “mother of mindfulness” and has written extensively on the illusion of control, mindful aging, stress, decision-making, and health. Among other honors, she is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and three Distinguished Scientist Awards, the World Congress Award, the NYU Alumni Achievement Award, and the Staats award for Unifying Psychology. Dr. Langer has been a guest speaker all over the world, including Japan, Malaysia, Germany, Australia, Mexico, Switzerland, Argentina and China.

Sep 19, 2014 58:51

Description:

In the September 2, 2014 episode of Boomer Generation Radio, Rabbi Address welcomes Cliff Fostoff, a Florida-based franchise consultant, to talk about baby boomers changing careers. In the second half of the program, he speaks with gerontologist Dr. Dennis McCullough about his approach to "slow medicine" for seniors.

In the second half of the program, Richard Address interviews Dr. Dennis McCullough, author of My Mother, Your Mother: Embracing "Slow Medicine," the Compassionate Approach to Caring for Your Aging Loved Ones. Slow Medicine advocates for careful anticipatory “attending” to an elder’s changing needs rather than waiting for crises that force acute medical interventions—thereby improving the quality of elders’ extended late lives without bankrupting their families financially or emotionally.  Dennis has been an “in-the-trenches” family physician and geriatrician for 30 years. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, and serves as a faculty member in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School. He is a member of the American Geriatrics Society, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, and the American Medical Directors Association, as well as the coauthor of The Little Black Book of Geriatrics. He lives with his wife, the poet Pamela Harrison, in Norwich, VT. Dr. McCullough appeared at the 2008 American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging conference held in Philadelphia. You can hear a podcast of that presentation here.

About the Guests

Dr. David BernsteinDr. David Bernstein

[dropcap]D[/dropcap]avid Bernstein, MD is a highly respected physician who is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Geriatrics practicing in Clearwater, Florida. His 30 years of experience have provided him with opportunities to observe and empathize with thousands of adults as they age. His compassion and ability to see the souls of his patients has compelled him to share his stories in his book “I’ve Got Some Good News and Some Bad News You’re OLD: Tales of a Geriatrician What to expect in Your 60s, 70s, 80s and Beyond”

After growing up outside NYC, he went to college at Washington University in St. Louis where he was introduced to a slower paced Midwestern lifestyle while meeting young adults from all over the US and the world. After attending Medical school in Albany New York, he moved to Florida where he has spent 30 years treating aging patients.

Dr. Bernstein has served as chairman of his hospital’s Pharmacy and Therapeutic committee for twenty years helping to improve patient safety and outcomes. During this period of time, he also served on the board of the local Jewish Family service and as chairman. As an associate clinical professor in the department of medicine at the University of South Florida College of Medicine, he has taught the skills he has acquired over the years to first and second year students.

Dr. Bernstein has been a nursing home medical director for 20 years. He was responsible for addressing administrative and quality assurance issues.

“When you give, you get back” he says about what his patients have told him and taught him about life and aging. His writing style of telling stories about his patients allows the reader to understand the complex emotions and struggles of growing older and losing independence. He lovingly tells these stories adding his own insights about this complex process.

Dr Bernstein is an avid public speaker, addressing various medical topics with his colleagues and with the community at large with a focus on families facing the complex problems as they near the end of life.

John Hook, Esq.John Hook, Esq.

[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ohn Hook provides estate planning and tax advice to high-net-worth individuals, executives, entrepreneurs and owners of closely held businesses. Having started his career at Stradley Ronon in the Tax Practice Group and obtaining his Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) from New York University School of Law, a major emphasis of Mr. Hook’s practice focuses on the tax implications of estate planning.

Mr. Hook advises charitable organizations on the establishment and operation of a planned charitable giving program. Such advice includes forming the program, establishing policies and procedures, addressing corporate governance issues, describing the types of planned giving documents available to donors, providing organizations with sample documents, and providing specific advice to the organization when a donor expresses an interest in making a planned charitable gift.

In addition, Mr. Hook counsels clients in the area of asset protection and the creation of offshore asset-protection vehicles – vital components of estate planning for high-net-worth individuals, executives and entrepreneurs.

Mr. Hook is a past chair of the taxation committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Probate Section. In addition, he lectures frequently in the areas of wills, trusts and estate planning, with a focus on reducing or eliminating federal estate taxes.

Consecutively since 2008, Mr. Hook has been included in The Best Lawyers in America, regarded as a definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Selection for Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which more than 1.8 million individual evaluations are reviewed. He was also recognized as a preeminent AV-rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell.

Notably, Mr. Hook represented a client in a record-setting auction sale of a rare pre-revolutionary pie-crust table attributed to the Garvan carver, which dates back to the early 1760s. Auctioned by Christie’s on Oct. 3, 2007, the antique table sold for more than $6.7 million.

Singer, songwriter, and Ph.D. Ethnomusicologist Juliane Jones guests on Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast #38

May 30, 2014 21:33

Description:

Juliane Jones, a singer-songwriter who just received a Ph.D. in ethnomusicology, is our guest on Program #38 of the Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast. Juliane talks about her specialization in Chinese operatic music, and how she has integrated Chinese lyrics into songs on her new CD, "The Space Between the Telephone Lines." We also hear several tracks from the CD.

About Juliane Jones, from her website:

[caption id="attachment_10061" align="alignleft" width="300"]Juliane Jones is a Ph.D. ethnomusicologist and a singer/songwriter whose new CD, Juliane Jones is a Ph.D. ethnomusicologist and a singer/songwriter whose new CD, "The Space Between the Telephone Lines," was just released.[/caption]

Singer-songwriter and ethnomusicologist Juliane Jones finds harmony in what seems like self-identity dissonance. “I occupy a middle space – my world is about intersections,” the New York-based songstress explains. Juliane’s father is Welsh, and her mother is from LA. She has lived internationally in five different places and speaks fluent Chinese and French. She is an ethnomusicologist by profession and an actively gigging musician. Evocatively, Juliane titles her kaleidoscopic, singer-songwriter, English-Chinese hybrid album The Space Between The Telephone Lines.

Juliane’s expansive artistry melds genres and inward/outward travelogues. It’s an exquisitely curated showing of diverse identities, spanning the genres of indie, alternative, folk, pop, electronic music, and rock, as it incorporates her experiences from studying music in China and France. Her writing evokes the astute and playful lyrics of Serge Gainsbourg, and the vivid narratives in the French Chanson genre with elements of Canto-pop music, inspired particularly by the Chinese artist Faye Wong.

Juliane has been building her artist profile through gigging in NYC’s vibrant singer-songwriter scene and expanding her outreach through gigs nationally and internationally, most notably with intimate gigs in Shanghai. In addition, she’s received exposure through having tracks played on Fairchild Radio and TV broadcast in Canada.

A foundational moment in her life’s work timeline occurred while in college in the East Asian Studies Department at the University of Chicago. She was studying the great Italian composer Giacomo Puccini and became inspired by the fact that he integrated Eastern music within one of his operas. It was a revelatory moment: Previously she was a prodigiously talented singer-songwriter with a separate intuitive gift for linguistics and understanding different cultures. This light bulb moment helped her discover the harmony in the space between these worlds.

“Ethnomusicology and songwriting are similar in a lot of ways. Ethnography is really about description, observation, and interpretation. Songwriting is similar, but in writing songs the author can blend fact with fiction—it’s more flexible,” she says.

The Space Between The Telephone Lines uses pop conventions to explore intriguing, contrasting dialogues in music styles, cultures, and love. “The progress and innovations in pop have made it the perfect medium to explore different cultures and genres to create a fresh artistic vocabulary,” Juliane reveals. The album standout, “When You Sleep,” blends elegantly essential classical motifs with sweet folk pop. The accompanying video presents a charmingly quaint snapshot of new love. “That’s about when you get to that point in a relationship when you are so crazy-mad-in-love that you start second-guessing what you have,” Juliane says. The sublime, pastoral pop of “Rhythm & Blues” dissects long distance relationships in a playfully conceptual video and lyric scheme, referencing the Chinese myth of the red string of fate that connects destined lovers.

Throughout the album Juliane innovatively explores an East-West cultural exchange. She sings portions of songs in Chinese, boldly challenging herself to keep thematic and melodic continuity within Western pop conventions. Further enriching the East-West artistic dialogue, Juliane covers a song by beloved Canto-pop artist Faye Wong who previously ignited her own cultural exchange with a gorgeous version of the Cranberries “Dreams.”

The album was tracked in Nashville and produced by Juliane and Doug Beiden. Reflecting on the profound journey to arrive at The Space Between The Telephone Lines, Juliane says: “For me, answering big questions about music, culture, and life has always been a part of my songwriting. I’m always looking for new ways of understanding music, and I’ve always been interested in how writing music can be linked to individual biography and social history. I’m forever fascinated with that moment of creation, it always seems magical.”

Elder abuse is focus of Boomer Generation Radio April 8 program

Apr 16, 2014 57:50

Description:

Denise Getgen, chief of protective services for the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, discusses elder abuse with Rabbi Address on the April 8 Boomer Generation Radio program, in the opening segment sponsored by Kendal Corporation. Visit the department's Protective Services page.

In the second half of the program,Betty Long, president and CEO of Guardian Nurses, Bala Cynwyd, discusses healthcare advocacy for seniors.

Betty Long, RN, MHA, President & CEO, Guardian NursesBetty Long, RN, MHA
President & CEO
Guardian Nurses

Betty Long, RN, MHA, founded Guardian Nurses Healthcare Advocates after guiding several elder family members through the healthcare system. She couldn't help but wonder, what happens to patients who do not have a nurse in the family?

To test her theory that nurse advocates would benefit patients and families, Betty began offering her services for free to friends and word-of-mouth referrals. The response was overwhelming. Betty developed a business plan and incorporated Guardian Nurses Healthcare Advocates in October 2003.  That was 10 years ago!

The Guardian Nurses' philosophy of championing patients' rights to quality healthcare was inspired by the story of Florence Nightingale, often credited with being the "Mother of Modern Nursing." The young nurse, working in overcrowded hospital wards during the Crimean War, noticed an extraordinarily high incidence of respiratory infections among the soldiers. She took the bold step of opening the ward windows, which resulted in a marked decrease in the infection rate. With that small intervention, the first nurse advocate is thought to have saved countless lives.

In the spirit of "The Lady with the Lamp," Guardian Nurses Healthcare Advocates now lights the way through the healthcare maze for thousands of patients and families.

About Roseann Vanella

Roseann Vanella of Advanced Mediation SolutionsRoseann Vanella of Advanced Mediation Solutions

Roseann’s experience and credentials alone set her apart from other professional mediators. But Roseann is truly passionate about her work because she has personally benefited from the advantages of mediation.

A graduate of St. John’s University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing management, Roseann began her career more than 25 years ago with a Global Fortune 100 firm. She specialized and excelled in negotiating complex contracts – a skill that goes to the heart of her work as a mediator. Meanwhile, Roseann has also been a successful entrepreneur and local business owner.

Mediation requires a delicate balance: The neutral third party must be firm yet compassionate, knowledgeable yet creative.

Roseann is all of the above. She deftly handles difficult divorce and family issues with one goal in mind: A resolution that benefits everyone.

She believes in the power of mediation because she’s been there. Roseann experienced a successfully mediated divorce that allowed her to move on with her life. She also has been through a lengthy family dispute involving elder care. She fully understands how much families benefit when they mediate – and suffer when they don’t.

Roseann is a recognized expert on divorce and her words of wisdom have appeared in the Huffington Post. She also channels her vast experience and understanding of family issues and corporate business into a weekly radio show. She hosts “Family Affaires,” which reaches a worldwide audience through WTER Radio. Guests who are experts in their respective fields discuss issues that relate to business and families, and how to balance the two.

Roseann is also the Publisher of FamilyAffaires.com, a worldwide online community offering education and support in the areas of Special Needs Parenting, Divorce, Health Crisis and Aging Family Members.  In this community experts and every day people offer their support through education and sharing of personal stories. Roseann’s passion of helping families in transition is the driving force behind this wonderful resource.

Roseann brings a rare level of expertise to her profession. She received her certification training in family/divorce mediation and elder mediation from the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators. Roseann is among the few mediators in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to receive formal training in elder mediation. She is also an active member of the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators and the Academy of Professional Family Mediators. Roseann also was inducted into the Cambridge Who’s Who list of executives, professionals and entrepreneurs.

Fluent in Italian, Roseann is a world traveler with unique insight and understanding into many other cultures.

She has a BA from Queens College of the City of New York and a Masters Degree in Spanish from C.W. Post College in Long Island. In 2006 Sandy decided to retire. At that time she sold both companies to a friendly competitor. Since then she has spent more time with her husband, children and grandchildren, traveling and volunteering for organizations that are important to her. She also began to use the Internet more frequently and discovered that going from site to site could sometimes be time consuming. She began to search for one site that would cover a variety of subjects that she found interesting. Not being able to find such a site is what planted the seed that eventually grew into TOS50.com, a website that explores areas of interest for those of us who are on The Other Side of 50.

Prior to leading NFESH, Borden was the President and CEO of the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) for over 20 years. Under Borden’s direction, MOWAA grew from a little known trade association to become a preeminent national charity. An outspoken advocate for those forgotten seniors she called “the hidden hungry,” she guided the organization through two decades of remarkable growth, increasing its annual budget more than tenfold and overseeing millions of dollars in grants allocated to MOWAA’s member programs across the United States to support their efforts of providing nutritious meals to seniors in their local communities.

Prior to her tenure at MOWAA, Ms. Borden held several public affairs and policy positions in the public sector, including Deputy Commissioner for Policy and External Affairs at the Social Security Administration and Director of Public Affairs of the then-Office of Human Development Services within the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. She also has been a successful small business owner.

Ms. Borden currently serves as an Advisory Board Member of the Sesame Street Food Insecurity Advisory Committee and on the American Society of Association Executive’s (ASAE) Key Philanthropic Organizations Committee (KPOC), which she chaired in 2008 and 2009. She has also been a member of the CEO Advisory Committee of ASAE, a member of the Nonprofit Advisory Board, a Member of the Board of Trustees of Alfred University and the Board of Directors of the Visiting Nurse Associations of America. Additionally, Ms. Borden has served on the faculty in the School of Graduate and Continuing Studies at Goucher College in Baltimore.

About Chad Stone

Author Chad StoneAuthor Chad Stone

Chad Stone is a dating success story. He got divorced after 25 years of marriage and bravely entered the world of modern dating. He embraced his new single life and began to learn everything he could about dating, relationships, and finding love again.

Mr. Stone interviewed single adults of both sexes to get insights about what works and what doesn't work when searching for a romantic partner. He researched online dating, and he helped other single adults write effective online dating profiles. As part of his research, he attended dating events including "speed dating" evenings and dating mixers. His research and personal dating experience became the basis for his humorous memoir, Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet: One Man's Brave Adventure into Dating Again in the 21 st Century .

Stone frequently appears as a guest on radio and TV shows to discuss dating and relationships. He brings much-needed humor and common sense to finding love and keeping the romance alive in a loving relationship. He is a frequent contributor to a wide variety of online and print publications, and he has also served as a featured "Advice from Men" contributor to datingwithoutdrama.com.

"Relationships are supposed to be fun," says Stone. "Looking for the love of your life is also supposed to be fun. I am constantly looking for the humor and the lighter side of dating and relationships, and I encourage everyone to do the same. Going on a first date--or going on a date night with your spouse--should be an enjoyable experience. If it feels like a chore or it feels like work, you're not doing it right. You need to lighten up and enjoy the moment."

Chad Stone shares his own personal brand of dating and relationship advice (often humorous) on his blog .   His first book about dating, Confessions of a Middle-Aged Babe Magnet, was published in 2012. The book is available on amazon.com and at selected retailers.

Chad Stone owns a successful marketing and public relations business. He lives with his wife (who he met on a popular online dating site) in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Lead singer/producer Zeeshan Zaidi of Indie Band "The Commuters" on Middle Chamber Podcast

Apr 26, 2013 30:03

Description:

CommutersphotoZeeshan Zaidi, lead singer and producer of the New York-based indie rock band The Commuters, joins Steve Lubetkin on this edition of the Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast.

[powerpress]

From The Commuters' website:

Before forming the Commuters in 2010, Canadian-born, Philippines-raised frontman Zeeshan Zaidi (whose parents were born in Pakistan and India) spent many years in the music industry. His early accomplishments included producing and engineering Grammy-nominated artist Ryan Leslie’s first demo, and he subsequently worked in the marketing departments of major labels in New York helping to develop the careers of other versatile artists, including OutKast and Cee Lo Green. During this time, Zaidi was also honing his craft as a singer, songwriter and musician, performing around New York’s open mic circuit.

When the time arrived to put his own abilities as a performer front and center, he immediately shared a dozen demos of his songs with childhood friend, New York-based producer and soon-to-be Commuters guitarist Uri Djemal, who was also raised in the Philippines (by parents of Israeli and American descent). The two got to work co-producing Zaidi’s songs at Djemal’s Madpan Studios in Manhattan, where Djemal had produced many well-known artists in New York’s indie-rock scene. Says Zaidi: “Uri’s studio was a few blocks from my apartment and he was telling me for years to come work on my songs there. One day — when I knew it was time — I just walked over and we started.”

Soon, they were joined by Djemal’s previous collaborator, Ben Zwerin on bass and Paul Amorese behind the drums, solidifying the current lineup.

Rabbi Ben David safe after Boston Marathon; describes aftermath of bombing

Apr 17, 2013 17:52

Description:

Shortly before 3 p.m. Monday, Mt. Laurel Rabbi Ben David, senior rabbi of Adath Emanu-El and an avid marathon runner, had just checked off his “lifelong dream” of competing in--and completing--the Boston Marathon.

His official time of three hours, 21 minutes and 37 seconds--a personal best--put “the running rabbi” across the finish line as the 6,245th finisher.

Then, as he approached his hotel near the marathon’s finish line, the lifelong dream took a darker turn. Two bombs exploded on Boylston Street a few blocks apart, killing at least three people, including an eight-year-old boy, and severely injuring scores of race spectators.

For David, it was a replay of the nightmare of September 11, 2001, which he witnessed firsthand from lower Manhattan.

In this podcast, Jewish Community Voice correspondent Steve Lubetkin talks with Rabbi David about his experience at the marathon.

Middle Chamber Books Podcast #34: 'The Houseguests,' the true story behind the blockbuster Ben Affleck movie, "Argo"

Oct 20, 2012 01:21:42

Description:

Mark LijekMark Lijek, author of "The Houseguests," a book about his experience hiding with the Canadians in Iran. Mark's escape with his wife Cora and four colleagues from the US Embassy is dramatized in the current Ben Affleck movie, "Argo."

In November 1979, Iranian revolutionaries stormed and captured the US Embassy in Teheran.

Angered by the US Government decision to permit the former Shah of Iran to enter the US for cancer treatment, they held US diplomats hostage for more than a year.

Unknown to the revolutionaries, six American embassy staffers in another building on the grounds were able to escape, and made their way into hiding with the help of British, New Zealand, and Canadian diplomats. They ultimately spent more than three months living under the protection of the Canadian embassy, and ultimately left Iran using false Canadian passports.

It wasn't until 1997, when the CIA declassified its own involvement in the "exfiltration" of the six Americans, that the world learned about the CIA's elaborate cover story for the diplomats. It involved creating a fake Hollywood film production, and identities for the six Americans as Canadian filmmakers come to Iran to scout for locations to use in the movie. The story was first revealed by Joshua Bearman in Wired magazine in 2007 ("How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue Americans From Tehran"), and in The Master of Disguise: My Secret Life in the CIA, a book by Antonio "Tony" Mendez, the CIA agent who orchestrated the exfiltration.

It's the topc of Ben Affleck's new blockbuster movie, "Argo." But the real story is just as good as the Hollywood thriller, if not better.

In episode #34 of the Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast, we interview Mark Lijek, one of the six Americans exfiltrated by Tony Mendez. Mark has written his own memoir of his time in hiding with the Canadians, The Houseguests: A Memoir of Canadian Courage and CIA Sorcery.

Middle Chamber Books Podcast #33: Jason Jennings, author of "The Reinventors"

Jun 22, 2012 34:30

Description:

Jason Jennings Jason Jennings, author of "The Reinventors"[/caption] In this episode of the Middle Chamber Books and Music Podcast, we speak with bestselling author Jason Jennings, author of The Reinventors: How Extraordinary Companies Pursue Radical Continuous Change, in which he describes the characteristics of successful "reinventors" and offers suggestions for companies that want to achieve breakthrough success through continuous change. You can hear the complete interview in this podcast player, and you can purchase Martin's book at the link below. Read Jason's website here.

JASON JENNINGS

Authority on Leadership, Growth and Innovation

Jason Jennings is a researcher and one of the most successful and prolific business and leadership authors in the world and his greatest thrill is helping lead individuals and companies to their full economic potential.

He began his career as a radio and television reporter and was the youngest radio station group owner in the nation. Later, he founded Jennings-McGlothlin & Company, a consulting firm that became the world's largest media consultancy and his legendary programming and sales strategies are credited with revolutionizing many parts of the broadcasting industry.

He traveled the globe in search of the world's fastest companies for his landmark book, It's Not the Big That Eat the Small - It's the Fast That Eat the Slow. Within weeks of its release it hit the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and New York Times Bestsellers Lists. Now published in 32 languages, USA TODAY named it one of the top 25 books of the year! Next, he and his research teams identified the world's ten most productive companies for his bestseller Less Is More.

That was followed by his book, Think BIG - Act Small, which profiled the only ten companies in the world to have organically grown both revenues and profits by double digits every year for ten consecutive years. Like all his previous books it debuted on all the bestseller charts. His next book, Hit the Ground Running - A Manual for Leaders revealed the tactics and strategies of the ten CEO's who created the greatest amount of economic value between 2000 and 2009.

His latest book for his publisher Penguin Putnam, The Reinventors - How Extraordinary Companies Pursue Radical Continuous Change was released on May 10, 2012 and reveals the secrets of those leaders and organizations that have successfully reinvented and transformed themselves. In total, Jennings and his researchers have screened and studied more than 200,000 companies. Along the way he found time to join forces with well known cardiologist Dr. John Kennedy and coauthor the 2010 Health, Mind and Body bestseller, The 15 Minute Heart Cure –The Natural Way to Release Stress and Heal Your Heart in Fifteen minutes a Day.

Critics call his books, "extraordinarily well researched, insightful, crisply written, accessible, intriguing and a vital resource for everyone in business," and USA TODAY calls Jennings one of the three most in-demand business speakers on the planet along with the authors of Good to Great and In Search of Excellence. When not traveling the world on research, in search of adventure, and doing eighty keynote speeches each year, Jennings and his family split their time between the San Francisco bayside community of Tiburon, California and their lodge, Timber Rock Shore on a small lake in Michigan’s northern peninsula where they share the environment with native moose, bear, deer, wolves and soaring eagles.

Jewish Sacred Aging Podcast #1: Seminar on "The Art of Care-Giving"

Apr 13, 2012 01:55:47

Description:

We're pleased to present our first Jewish Sacred Aging seminar podcast, featuring a workshop conducted by Rabbi Address at M'kor Shalom in Cherry Hill, NJ on "The Art of Care-Giving." This program is part of the synagogue's Health and Wellness Initiative, which is based on the care-giving chapter in Rabbi Address's newest book, Seekers of Meaning. (Click on the book's title to purchase.)

Rabbi Richard F. Address is the senior rabbi at Congregation M'kor Shalom in Cherry Hill, NJ. He was called to the congregation after 33 years with the Union for Reform Judaism, where he most recently served as the specialist and congregation consultant for the North American Reform movement in the program areas of Caring Community and Family Concerns.

His work has been based on the belief that a congregation, to be a true “caring community”, must be founded on a theology of sacred relationships. A major part of Address’s work has been in the development and implementation of the project on Sacred Aging.

This project has been responsible for creating awareness and resources for congregations on the implication of the emerging longevity revolution with growing emphasis on the aging of the baby boom generation. This aging revolution has begun to impact all aspects of Jewish communal and congregational life.

Rabbi Address was ordained at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) inCincinnati (1972) and served congregations in California before joining the staff of the Union for Reform Judaism (formerly the Union of American Hebrew Congregations) in 1978. He directed the Union’s Pennsylvania Council from 1978 through 2000. In 1997 he founded the Department of Jewish Family Concerns and went full time in New York in January of 2001. Rabbi Address received a Certificate in Pastoral Counseling from the Post Graduate Center for Mental Health in 1998 and his Doctor of Ministry from HUC-JIR in 1999. He also received his honorary Doctorate from HUC-JIR in 1997.

ACE Professional Risk Podcast #8: Social Media: The Business Benefits May be Enormous, But Can the Risks – Reputational, Legal, Operational – Be Mitigated?

Nov 24, 2011 15:49

Description:

In this ACE USA Professional Risk Podcast, ACE Group experts explore the risks companies face from engaging in social media activities.

Panelists are:

Toby Merrill, Vice President within ACE Professional Risk’s Technology and Privacy Liability division. Toby is based in Philadelphia.

Ken Latham, Vice President within ACE Professional Risk’s Employment Practices Liability division. Ken is based in New York City.

Richard Santalesa, Esq., Senior Counsel with InfoLawGroup LLP. Mr. Santalesa is also based in New York City.

In less than a decade, social media seems to have “taken over the world.” As one of the largest social networking sites, Facebook® boasts more than 750 million people actively using its service, with more joining every day. However, the vast majority of companies did not immediately join the social media revolution.  Instead, they observed from the sidelines.  But when the first wave of companies did join, it was because they anticipated the significant business benefits of “this brave new world” – where the personal, the professional, and the commercial combine seamlessly, and in the blink of an eye.

ACE recognizes that social media has created a whole new world of privacy, security, intellectual property, employment practices, and other legal risks.  In this podcast, we will discuss the business benefits of social media participation, and how the cost of non-participation – or opting out – could mean anything from losing business to losing touch with your customers.  We will also provide risk managers and business owners with some background on the risks of social media participation, discuss a few basic steps to address a company’s social media risks, and provide a roadmap to help make social media work for their company.  Most important, we’ll explain why a coordinated approach to managing the risks and liabilities when using social media is an essential best practice.
