    Sports Palooza Gets Headlocked!

    in Sports

    Four guests this week! Tune in! 


    CEO of AlignMed Bill Schultz faced spinal fusion surgery ten years ago, and set out to avoid it. He found the spark of an idea and then spent the next ten years perfecting his shirts. The USGA has approved the shirt for tourney play and when the Lakers' Dwight Howard suffered a torn labrum, he played a dismal first half of the season. After given an Alignmed posture shirt by the Lakers' one and only head trainer, Gary Vitti, Howard immediately played better. Learn more on the show today! 

    Mike Kingston is best known as the writer/creator of Headlocked, a gritty coming-of-age drama set in the world of professional wrestling. It's the first comic that is actually about wrestling. With pro wrestling legend and WWE Hall of Famer Jerry “The King” Lawler as the permanent cover artist, almost all of the Headlocked art is done by actual wrestlers. Kingston talks to us about his Kickstarter campaign!

    It's that time of year! Snow is on the forecast this weekend in New York and Jaime Quinn, DPT, Regional Clinical Director from Professional Physical Therapy will discuss stretching and preparing for cold weather activity (raking leaves, walk-a-thons, shoveling snow).

    A FREE BOOK of Your Choice from Scott HERE 

    Scott Cluthe talks with Paul M. Barrett, author of law of The Jungle Live tonight.
    Barrett is an assistant managing editor and senior writer at Bloomberg Businessweek.  He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun, American Islam: The Struggle for the Soul of a Religion, and The Good Black:  A True Story of Race in America.  He lives and works in New York City. 

    The gripping story of one American lawyer’s obsessive crusade—waged at any cost—against Big Oil on behalf of the poor farmers and indigenous tribes of the Amazon rainforest.

    Steven Donziger, a self-styled social activist and Harvard educated lawyer, signed on to a budding class action lawsuit against multinational Texaco (which later merged with Chevron to become the third-largest corporation in America). The suit sought reparations for the Ecuadorian peasants and tribes people whose lives were affected by decades of oil production near their villages and fields. During twenty years of legal hostilities in federal courts in Manhattan and remote provincial tribunals in the Ecuadorian jungle, Donziger and Chevron’s lawyers followed fierce no-holds-barred rules. In the end, he won an unlikely victory, a $19 billion judgment against Chevron--the biggest environmental damages award in history.

    Bauder College Atlanta: The Illegal acts of Graham Holdings/Kaplan - Part 3

    in News

    .This episode will discuss the closing of Bauder College and the illegal and unethical acts committed by Graham Holdings and Kaplan, Inc.  Bauder College is a private, for profit college located in Atlanta, Georgia.  It is a division of Graham Holdings ("GHC") and Kaplan, Inc. (Kaplan Higher Education ("KHE").  The closing of Bauder College will not resolve the issues faced by inner city, urban and rural American students, which includes student loan default rates and unemployment.  Most of these students will not be accepted by other colleges or universities and many will be left with nowhere to turn.  The cost of attending Kaplan University is greater than the attendance at Bauder and the majority of other colleges and universities.  Our government has failed these vulnerable populations and sit idle while Kaplan became a billion dollar for profit educational industry who knowingly targeted the most vulnerable population in this country with abusive practices that were used to target inner city, urban and rural poor Americans.

    Part 3:

    Kaplan Test Centers: LSAT, GRE, MCAT . . .

    SwCA Episode 172: I Have So Many Ideas That I Lose Track of Time All of The Time! What Should I Do?

    in Business

    SHOW NOTES: This series is designed for the statistically rare, yet often overlooked, self-employed individual who marches to their own drummer and loves it! This is not a series for people who want to consider future self-employment (aspiring) and how to become self-employed. This is a series for existing self-employment individuals. A very small number of people  are self-employed ‘full-time’ (not the best term but it does convey the intended meaning). 

    How are we defining self-employed in this series?

    Definition of Self-employed -

    Self-employed. (n.d.). Retrieved August 4, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/self-employed

    There is a very different professional situation for a self-employed person who operates as their own safety net. No guaranteed paycheck, no benefits. Self-employment is a joy for those who value autonomy and possess high levels of self-discipline. From Bloomberg Businessweek, “self-employed people are happier with their jobs than the wage-employed. According to the Pew report, "Nearly four-in-ten self-employed workers (39%) say they are 'completely satisfied' with their jobs, compared with 28% of all wage or salaried employees." This is consistent with earlier studies showing that, in a wide range of countries, a higher percentage of the self-employed are satisfied or very satisfied with their jobs than the wage employed.” (http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/apr2010/sb2010041_151187.htm)

    Why are we referring to the series as self-employment ecstasy?
