A recent survey of workforce boards by the Federal Reserve indicated that nearly 60% of WIBs have representatives from the banking industry on their boards. However, only 10% of boards had engaged Community Reinvestment Act funding to develop complementary programs. So how can WIBs better partner with this important and expanding industry sector to bring services to low-income job seekers or youth and better prepare them to enter or re-enter the workforce? The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) is legislation that puts an obligation on banks to serve all members of the community where they take deposits, and meet the credit needs of their local areas. The Federal Reserve has oversight of the CRA, and wants to develop new and innovative ways for banks to meet their requirements under the Act by serving the low to middle income population through partnerships with the workforce system. Join us NAWB CEO Ron Painter as he interviews Federal Reserve of Kansas City’s Community Development Director, Steve Shepelwich, on Monday, December 2nd at 1:00 PM. During this 30-minute interview, learn how the Federal Reserve system can help WIBs partner with local banks to create complementary programs and even identify funding streams to advance financial literacy and workforce readiness among their customers.

Elephants, Entrepreneurs and Edicators find the extraordinary in the ordinary and help those arouind them achieve excellence.
Everyday on The Teach Jim Show we find ways to work through the challenges and weightier matters of life (elephants) with informal, self-directed learning strategies and engaging exchanges with entrepreneurs and educators.
Today our career path most often leads to the next life cycle of our progress. The idea we are to have a lifelong career plan is crazy. Change is expodential so our chance to achieve excepeitonal excellence under such presures is the new reality. Leveraging our experience and the experience of others we are poised to exceed our ordinary selves and become extraordinary.
Our goal on The Teach Jim Show is to "stop thinking about elephants" and become the exceptional enrepreneurs and educators we were born to be. It is time to start dreaming aloud because dreaming's allowed !
And whatever you do....don't think about elephants, entrepreneurs or educators!

Janet explains that no soul is greater than the other and that there is equality because we are all necessary functions from the same pure essence light. Then Eileen, writes in for a request for healing regarding self love and loss; Janet works with the HS calling in divine strength and divine understanding.

Featuring Host Martin Campbell and Co-Host Ron Mayer
Martin Campbell is an author and business executive who is dedicated to helping people improve their lives by assisting them in finding out who they are and who they want to be. From being a councillor to writing about bringing understanding, unity and joy into people’s lives, his focus has always been on people’s core needs. As a dedicated supporter of individual spirituality, Martin believes humanity’s last major hurdle is in achieving individual empowerment and freedom. He knows first-hand that expanding human or individual spiritually is not always easy, nor accepted - no matter who you are. He firmly believes it is through our love and individual paths, that together we will propel humanity to its greatest heights. Yet he recognizes that it has been his life’s traumatic events, which provided him with the opportunity to grow stronger. Martin is grateful for all that has occurred. His joys and sorrows have made him who he is today. He says for that - he is truly thankful.
Ron Mayer has always been a Spiritual Seeker, or as his elder, Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha puts it, “A Spiritual Archeologist.” He has an interest in ALL things spiritual as well as a love of art and music, and plays the piano and guitar. He loves to “watch people.”
Ron has come to the realization that self-development is never complete or a finished process, and when our journey of self-discovery begins, it is a forever endeavor from the heart.
Expect him to bringing fresh, new and at times controversial ideas about Spiritual Ascension, the science and spirituality of the art of bio-regenesis.

A coalition of academics, scientists and journalists has written to the director general of the BBC to accuse the broadcaster of being “recklessly irresponsible” in promoting “genocide denial” in a BBC2 documentary on the Rwanda massacres of 1994.
The letter by 38 experts on Rwanda expresses “grave concern” over the impression left by the film Rwanda’s Untold Story, broadcast earlier this month. The authors demand a BBC inquiry into how the documentary was made and call for the broadcaster to apologise to victims and survivors of the genocide.
“In broadcasting this documentary the BBC has been recklessly irresponsible,” the letter said. “The programme has fuelled genocide denial. It has further emboldened the génocidaires, all their supporters and those who collaborate with them. It has provided them the legitimacy of the BBC.”
The complaint follows earlier protests by Rwandan genocide survivor groups who complained the BBC had followed a political agenda and made no attempt to contact them over what happened in 1994.
