    Special Guest, Musician - Aris

    in LGBT

    "I am hard at work on my 3rd full length album "Pulse", and uplifting journey of love and life. I'm making an album that will touch you and inspire you and resonate with all your emotions. The album is a mixture of dance, rock, soul and world sounds... tribal beats, soaring hooks, entrancing guitars, lush strings and bubbling synths .  I want this album to be a soundtrack for the passions of your life. I also hope for "Pulse" to feature several notable guests vocalists - amazing powerhouse vocalists who have touched your hearts and made your bodies move on the dance floor. 

    I've started recorded basic tracks for the album, and I will utilize this crowd-sourcing campaign to finish the instrumentation on these recordings, and give them extra layers of dimension with live string arrangements and supporting vocals. This is my second time as executive producer on an album, and based on the success and critical acclaim of my last release "Twilight Revival", I am certain I can deliver my best material ever.  With your help, we can bring this music to the world!

    I was raised by a single mom who always taught me to dream big. She herself had toured in the 1960's and 1970's as a belly dancer. She taught herself how to dance, how to sew, and sewed all her own costumes. She taught me how to be brave. She taught me how to love. She taught me that love could change the world... that it could move mountains!

    This new album "Pulse" is all about love. Falling in love, Loving yourself, Loving Life, and I can't wait to share it with you all!" - from Aris.

    Show #99 - Making Strategy Social (Social Engagement Sub Group Stream)

    in Business

    Special Guests: Steve O'Neill, John Smythe and Charelle Wigley, members of the Social Engagement Subgroup

    'Making strategy social' – is a work stream within the ’Social’ sub group of Engage for Success. It wants to make explicit the best ways and means to blend social media and face to face dialogue to devise and execute better strategy. Crowdsourcing the experience, insight and knowledge of employees as well as leaders adds value to strategy design and delivery - in what might otherwise default to a traditional 'top down' process.

    The small steering group behind this work stream wants to create a product that will help capture what organisational leaders - 'the C suite’ - needs to think about in making strategy development and implementation more ‘social’ in orientation - both in mindset as well as use of technology.

    Join us as we discuss what this work stream is focusing on and find out how you can get involved.

    The View Up Here talks Citizen-driven privacy laws with OpenMedia.ca

    in Politics

    The View Up Here has been talking about many campaigns in Canada from many different organizations. They all strive to expose the corruption, inform the public, and motivate people to become involved and present real alternatives. Despite the political intimidation via arms of the Government from Emperor and the Corporate Pacification Committee, these groups continue to grow and thrive and spread the message.

    OpenMedia.ca, the Canadian member organization of OpenMedia International, has a very interesting and popular crowdsourcing campaign underway in Canada. They are asking Canadians to contribute their thoughts and ideas towards positive pro-privacy policy recommendations. A "drag and drop" feature is used to ask people to rank six key priorities. There is also a series of questions on key privacy issues that Canadians need to focus on, for their own well-being and interest.

    David Christopher of OpenMedia.ca joins us again to discuss, inform and encourage Canadians to participate in this positive campaign and others that are underway and will be coming. This campaign is supported by many leading groups well known for triumphing the rights of the individual against the power of the State.

    Canadian Journalists for Free Expression. International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group. Privacy & Access Council of Canada. Free Dominion. BC Freedom of Information and Privacy Association. We are not alone in wanting to defend and increase protection of the individual from the intrusion of the State.

    Call in and find out how your voice can make a difference. Join David Christopher and @canadianglen, tell us what you think Canada needs (and what it doesn't need). The remainder of the show will expand on the surveillance state and what average citizens can do to combat it. Lines are open all night!

    Perfecting Your Crowdfunding Campaign Through the Art of Storytelling

    in Self Help

    There is no shortage of information to be found online on how to crowd fund. Most of it, however, neglects to address the central quality that has made crowdfunding the profound game changer it has become. People give money to campaigns because they believe and connect with the project creator. Therefore, success in large part depends on that person's ability to tell his or her story in a relatable and memorable way. 

    Listeners can expect to:
    •  Learn to gain control over your narrative through storytelling concepts that have been around for millennia and retrofitted for the 21st century crowd.     
    •  Common mistakes and weak links that lead to poor storytelling and how to improve upon them.
    •  How do you know if you're a good storyteller?
    •  Why and how these are techniques can be learns by almost anyone. (And if you can't do it yourself, how to know when to

    CrowdMed: Crowdsourcing Diagnoses

    in Health

    Jared Heyman's sister went from a young healthy teen to someone who had to drop out of college because of depression and a fatigue so profound she could only watch TV or play solitaire. She would also wake up several times a night with nightmares and cold sweats. Eventually she became suicidal.

    Over the course of 3 years, she saw 16 different medical specialists (all seen individually) racked up $100,000 in medical bills to no avail. They couldn’t figure it out.  She was what you really don’t ever want to be – a tough case. Finally, the diagnosis was made. It had a rare disease that only affects 15,000 females. She was treated and is doing fine now, but her story inspired her brother to do something to help other people like her.

    Jared Heyman founded CrowdMed to crowdsource medical diagnoses.  That’s right, he designed a platform to bring together people with difficult to diagnosis conditions with folks he calls Medical Detectives – people who want to help solve the puzzle.
