    Clete Bulach on school violence/security; Fiorina wins this week's spotlight

    in Politics Conservative

     Clete Bulach- Leading Authority on Educational Policy, Reform and Global Competitiveness will be joining us "In the Pickle Barrel" to discuss is there a difference between school violence and cop brutality? Topics in the recent news about a school resource officer taking down a female student points to the typical overreaction by police. An experienced officer at least twice the size of the student decided that the best way to deal with her quiet, nonviolent refusal to give up a cellphone and leave the room was to grab her by the neck, flip her over her desk, and drag her along the floor. Was this an overreaction? Is this the big issue that is plaguing our society? Why does it continue to happen?

    Carly Fiorina won this week's drawing to be the 2016 Presidential Candidate under the spotlight "In the Pickle Barrel". Why is she running? How does she stand on the issues? Can she win?

    in Business

    Alexandre Zisa is an expert in industrial competitiveness, product performance, and design to cost.

    We talk about time-tested basics and the latest marketing technology with aviation thought leaders and marketing experts.  Broadcast through BlogTalkRadio and iTunes,  this podcast is a convenient way to get powerful, usable information that can make a difference to your sales this quarter.

    Alexandre Zisa visits with us on the Your Marketing CoPilot podcast. We discuss:

    Breaking the link between cost and quality
    Working backward from cost
    Using more expensive people can save you money
    Pushing decisions “down” to the operational level results in more and better innovation.
    Marketing in Germany, France, the U.S. (or even in Oregon and Texas!) involves tailoring the message for the way people “dream” regionally

    Being an expert in a small niche, breaking the link between cost and quality, and  pushing decisions down to the operational level, may originate in the engineering field, but they apply equally well in advertising and marketing.

    MyNDTALK - Rock The Boat - Resmaa Manakem

    in Psychology

    Rock The Boat 

    Conflict is a natural part of any intimate relationship. Yet most couples either avoid it or try to smooth over their differences. This results in at least one partner compromising their integrity—and stunting their own growth. Gritty, often irreverent, and always practical, author Resmaa Manakem of Rock the Boat challenges couples not to flee from conflicts, because the emotional stalemate that conflicts produce creates an opportunity for profound transformation. This transformation affirms each partner’s individuality while forging a more mature intimacy, a greater trust, and a deeper bond.

    Rock the Boat challenges the idea that conflict between partners is unhealthy or something to avoid. Instead, it encourages both people to stand by what they need and who they are—but to do so with compassion rather than competitiveness or vengefulness. This is the purpose of an intimate relationship: to create an atmosphere where both people learn to grow up and mature in their relationship by appreciating each other’s individual needs in a caring and mature way."

    Curtis Harwell Discusses Why To Never Use a FAT Trainer or Coach Ever

    in Fitness

    I can speak from a client’s perspective & fitness professional. I have used trainers over the years and if they did not look like they were fit, I felt that they could not get me there. I wanted someone who not only talked a good game–but took the time to put their fitness first. In the back of mind I am thinking, “how can you motivate me when you’re not motived enough to train yourself?” Fitness professionals that were holding some excess body fat seemed like hypocrites. How can you tell me this move will get you a six pack when you dealing with a 1.5 pack?

    Now that I am in the business as a studio owner & fitness consultant, I am even more aware of the competitiveness of our industry. With more people entering the health & fitness industry everyday, it makes good sense to stay on top of your game. My clients always say, “you don’t need to lose any weight–you look great.” I always appreciate the compliments but know there is always another trainer out there vying for their business. So on that note, I’ll be keeping my appointment with the gym today

    Bottom line, being skilled & knowledgeable can’t pay bills if no one calls you back. What do you think–should a trainer be fit to give fitness advice?
