Host Cyrus Webb welcomes back recording artist and musician Tomas Doncker to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss how he continues to make music that makes people think and feel and what's coming up next.
Tomas Boykin invades The Phantom Zone with Nikki Meow & Jay Luna! He was born and raised in the "City of Brotherly Love," Philadelphia, PA. Growing up he enjoyed playing a musical instrument, painting, drawing, singing and dancing. He once stated, "We danced in our house. There were no wall flowers." He was encouraged to act as early as the 3rd grade. By the time he left college he had experienced "A Chorus Line," "Pippin," "Finian's Rainbow" and "Little Foxes" and many other musical productions. Today he has a slew of film and television credits under his belt including an award winning commercial that aired during Super Bowl 2015! We're looking forward to hearing all about his life, work and his love of music, and what he has coming up for all of us to feast our eyes upon!
What if your mission was to "envision a Wisconsin where postsecondary education moves forward through an open exchange of ideas, the careful consideration of research, and a strong focus on the public good?"
However what if you actually tried realizing that mission during the last 4 months of Republican sponsored carpet bombing targeting the concrete ideals on which that mission rests?
This Thursday in a special episode of BustEd Pencils, Jed and Tim talk to two of the warriors from the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
Noel Tomas Radomski: Director and Assciate Researcher
Jason Lee: Outreach Programs Manager
Among many topics, we will ask Noel and Jason to provide a sense of the damage that was done and how WISCAPE will continue to fight back the attack on the essential freedom to learn and focus on the public good.
Don says Scacred Blue! Tomas agrees! Doesn't anybody else find it ironic that the French march in the streets calling for free speech as their government increases restrictions on free speech? This combined with all the evidense that the Paris attack was at least facilitated by western establishment players - most likely elements of MOSAD, CIA and French Intelligence.
Call in and tell us what you think about this and also the relaxing of the imbargo with Cuba.
There is a core group of criminals within our government that is engaging in open criminal activity as if it won't matter in the very near future. So we pose the question, why? Why would the Justice Department give guns to Mexican drug gangs? Why would the IRS openly target political opponents of the regime? Why is the CIA and its allies openly funding ISIS, formerly Al Qaeda which they created in the first place? The concerning aspect is why aren't the perpitrators worried about being prosecuted? One answer is they have an enormous false flag planned for later this year that will make everything irrelevant. So call in and pick your poison. Will it be a nuclear false flag and if so which city or cities will be hit? How about Ebola? An EMP? Etc. Besides what kind of attack and where it might be launched, gives Don and Tomas your best guess as to who the traitors will blame this time. Will it be cave Arabs again? How about the CIA's mercenary army, ISIS? Of course the Russians are coming! The Russians are coming! They even made a funny movie with that title years ago when I was a kid. Give us your best educated guess and your reasons why.

We will be discussing the key value drivers for commercial, government and end-use customers. Most customers have no idea what they are actually looking for in a system since they actually lack the foresight of having used a utility data analytics systems. Almost always, the evaluation process involves downloading some RFP template and throwing it out to the marketplace for pricing and some checklist of capabilities. There's more to consider in the technologies and the fit varies by customer. We'll dissect the marketplace and how solutions are lining up in the values they drive.
