Dave Johnson and Marcy Wheeler wrote posts in December referring to Jimmy Carter's "Malaise Speech" and its relationship to where the United States is today.

Marcy McKenna, the first winning inventor on TLC’s 'Homemade Millionaire' television show, is the product innovator and energetic entrepreneur behind Simply Solved Innovations. Born into a family of inventors, Marcy knew since childhood that inventing was her calling. Inspired by problems she encounters as a female, a business woman, a homemaker and a mother of three, she began creating solutions that make life easier, better and a lot more fun. One such solution garnered the attention of Kelly Ripa and her TLC television venture, Homemade Millionaire. Beating out thousands of other inventions, Marcy’s Style and Go™ (formally The Styling Station™) went on to become the winning product on the premiere episode. As a result, she signed an exclusive contract with the home shopping power house, HSN.

Looking back over the last 20 years of doing weddings, I had done every tradition and every ritual that has been done at any wedding in the world! On today's show, I am going to discuss the main Western traditions that are common.
Stacy was born and raised in Connecticut and earned a Bachelors of Science from Bryant University with a concentration in Marketing and Psychology. But it was during her junior year when studying in London that she realized she had bigger plans than to just earn a degree and get a job; she wanted to see the world. After landing her ‘dream job’ as a fashion buyer in Manhattan, she began to crave something more than the ‘dog-eat-dog’ environment that surrounded her. Although, passionate about fashion & design, Stacy knew she wanted something of more substance, something more impactful. She soon landed an exciting position and became the global director of public relations for an international best-selling author/business guru. This opportunity allowed Stacy to travel extensively opening her eyes and mind to new ideas and challenges, fascinating people, diverse cultures, but most importantly the pleasure of touching and making a difference in other lives.
A trip to India in 2004 proved pivotal forever changing Stacy’s life and thus began her inward journey toward self-realization. Soon after her return from India she began to manifest all the dreams that were shelved for so many years working to ‘get ahead’. Stacy later met and married a kindred soul, moved to beautiful Cape Cod, hung up her corporate career and took a leap of faith to become an entrepreneur dedicated to changing lives.

He received his doctorate in 1984 from the University of British Columbia, where his doctoral research focused on ethnopharmacological investigations of the botany, chemistry, and pharmacology of ayahuasca and oo-koo-he, two orally-active tryptamine-based hallucinogens used by indigenous peoples in the Northwest Amazon. Dr. McKenna received post-doctoral research fellowships in the Laboratory of Clinical Pharmacology, National Institute of Mental Health, and in the Department of Neurology, Stanford University School of Medicine. He joined Shaman Pharmaceuticals as Director of Ethnopharmacology in 1990, and relocated to Minnesota in 1993 to join the Aveda Corporation as Senior Research Pharmacognosist.

He is a founding board member of the Heffter Research Institute and serves on the advisory board of non-profit organizations in the fields of ethnobotany and botanical medicines. He was a key organizer and participant in the Hoasca Project, an international biomedical study of ayahuasca used by indigenous people and syncretic religious groups in Brasil. He recently completed a project, funded by the Stanley Medical Research Institute, to investigate Amazonian ethnomedicines for the treatment of schizophrenia and cognitive deficits. At the Heffter Research Institute, he continues his focus on the therapeutic uses of psychoactive medicines derived from nature and used in indigenous ethnomedical practices.
Marcy Massura, SVP North America Social & Digital -MSLGROUP drops by at @DriveThruHR to talk about her journey! “From failure we learn. From failures, successes are born.” We don't speak of failure very often at work or on social media but it is from failure that learning and innovation arise. We’ve all made a bad choice or decision in our careers that didn’t turn out as we had planned, but we have all learned and grown from that experience. Daily on DriveThruHR, we explore the themes of failure, learning and success. Join us and our guests as we share these stories of failure that turns into learning and professional growth every day at 12:00 pm Central Time. The radio program is hosted by @williamtincup, @Thehrbuddy @TheOneCrystal & @MikeVanDervort.. The #1 HR show, with amazing HR conversations and follow us on the twitters at @drivethruhr and #dthr.
Today, we are going to explore an idea -- it's just an idea - something to consider and something to have fun with.
Did you chose your Mother? Did you chose your Father? Did you chose your physical body? Did you choose your looks?
Did you volunteer to come to earth?
Marcy Wheeler (@emptywheel EmptyWheel Blog) and Dave Johnson (@dcjohnson Seeing the Forest) have a lot to talk about. Nobody ('cept Newt) wants to be Speaker of the House. Transpacific Partnership agreement is reached. What does that mean for the 99%, and national sovereignty. And, at last, Sanders and Clinton meet sorta face to face in the first Democratic primary debate.
Marcy Wheeler, automotive expert, briefly discusses the race for the first driverless car.
Then we discuss the use, and misuse, of "crazy" as a way of describing Republicans on the Tea Party wing. Marcy argues that in an envrionment of absolutely insane policy like the US in Syria, or the F35 fighter project, we should be careful when throwing the C word around. One of the Village centrists' crazy policies is domestic surveillance--massive violations of the Fourth Amendment that Freedom Party Republicans work against. CISA, the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act comes up. You can read some background on CISA and follow all these stories on emptywheel.net.
Today, I will be sounding my tuning forks - starting with the UT NOTE - which was deliberately taken out of our sounds during the 3rd Century A.D. when the power of Christianity was tampered with. The sound of UT opens our heart to see and feel God's power from our heart. And you will be able to go down into your heart and ask any questions that you want and hear answers from the holy wisdoms of eternity.
