SORT BY Relevancy
I apologize to everyone this morning, as I was having serious technical difficulties getting the show going. So, once I managed to fix things, I started a new broadcast, and what an hour it was.
Tommy Bird is one of the finest story tellers I've had the pleasure to speak with, and he has promised to return again to tell us more. He shares his life from a wee boy through today working with these sled dogs we so love, stories from the trap line, his races and a few tips on how he manages his team, and why they are so very exceptional.
Welcome to Breathing Through Paper with your hosts Lyrical Movements and WritteninPain... Tonight, we will ask the audience -- Is Black History Month; a time of Heritage or Humiliation?
This is an Open Forum...
Open Mic Poetry Night!!
Monday's @ 11PM EST

For those that know me, you know our motto is "Spiritual Enlightenment Through Sled Dogs." This is the basis for why Stormhawk Siberians do what we do. Although I freely speak of this, within many First Nations people who utilize sled dogs, it is NOT. Permission from the Elders must be sought, messages from Great Father and Ancestors must be delivered before these Sacred things can be spoken of to those non First Nations peoples.
So given this, it is my supreme honor that Marvin Noel Lizotte from Ecotourism Adventures has been given the go-ahead to speak with us on these most Sacred of topics: First Nations Spirituality with sled dogs.
Now, I know that the vast majority of you that listen in already know mushing. But this is a singular opportunity to know how this lifestyle we adore formed 1000's of years ago, and was then graciously passed though the generations, and to us today. As we all know, these sled dogs hold Magic in their Souls, and Marvin is going to tell us how that came to be.
No matter your level of skill with mushing, THIS is going to be a show to listen to. The early hour is of course so Marvin can speak with us, and then get on to the day's business with the dogs. Have a look at what he does at www.dogsledtour.ca on the web, and then join us early for the show, or listen on demand at your convenience thereafter!
Brady vs Manning 17 was another one for the ages. The Cleveland Cavs fire Head Coach David Blatt in favor of assisant Tyrone Lue. The two best teams in the NBA Western Conference face off in a regular season preview of the Conference finals. All that and more in another great episode of the Eye On Sports Podcast

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).
Last week we talked about how HR leaders achieve talent brand dominance, and this week we’re going to talk about how to manage through influence.
Organizations are becoming more matrixed and less hierarchical every day. Command-and-control corporate structures are relics of the past.
Like most managers today, dealing with flatter organizational structures, outsourcing, and virtual teams are all quite challenging. Because of this, more and more managers need to get things done through their peers inside and outside their organizations.
However, because the world of work has gotten so complex, the very act of change has grown increasingly difficult. Today’s flatter organizations actually give employees and managers much more flexibility in deciding how work gets done, but they also require greater levels of collaboration than ever before. This means that success is often dependent on persuading other individuals and teams to support your projects, even if they’re not direct reports.
This skill is called “managing through influence” and is as critical to success in today’s world as a sterling resume or a tireless work ethic.
Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about how to manage through influence with this week’s guest: Jim Fields, Vice President of Customer Experience Marketing at SAP, a multinational software corporation that makes enterprise software to manage business operations and customer relations.
Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!
For those of you that follow the show, you know I have mushers give props to their mentors. Well it's time for me to do the same with one of our own, Steven Laviolette of Tuuluuwak Sled Dogs. Steven is, in my definition, a true musher. He is the 4th generation, and raising the 5th in this wonderful lifestyle we love. His dogs are Siberian, and as I've seen with my own eyes, cared for as if they were his own flesh and blood children. You see, these dogs have, for going on 5 generations of people, been necessary to their lives for more than just the love of the mush. They are relied upon for feeding the family as they go out to hunt and trap, in the Traditional ways.
One of the things we are going to discuss is living a Traditional life where hunting and trapping in a part of survival, not sport. Done with prayer and reverence, the Gifts of Nature are just that: GIFTS. We will talk about Indigenous Beliefs and the thanks given for these Gifts versus sport hunting in a traditional musher's life, and how these dogs make survival possible, and are rewarded for their work on our behalf.
We are going to talk about raising children in the mushing lifestyle, and how this builds responsibility, character and compassion for ALL Living Beings. Steven will also talk about his kennel of Siberians, life on the trail in Quebec, races and tours, as well as the Spiritual aspects of a life he loves though these sled dogs. And of course, stories from the trail and times these dogs have saved his life.
He is mentor to many, although he will not claim to be, as he too seeks guidance from those he respects. We are going to talk about the importance of mentors in mushing, and the community we are so lucky to be a part of. Steven has been an invaluable friend and mentor to me, and my beloved Siberians for years now, and I invite you all to listen in, call in, and enjoy!
