    The Frat House Sports Show #194

    in Sports

    We might be on the brink of June, but our show calendar is packed with just about every sport you can imagine, even a bit of soccer.


    As we sit here about a week from the commencement of the Women’s World Cup Tournament in Canada, FIFA exploded with a major world-wide financial scandal resulting in a 47-count Federal indictment against nine organization executives and five marketing sponsors. To discuss and review it all, we turn to our Frat House Sports friend and Soccer and Sports journalist, Eric Purdy.


    The Frat House Sports Gang then turn their attention to the NFL and some of the subtle stories that came out last week’s spring league meetings.


    But our headline guest is unrestricted free agent, defensive line prospect Donte Rumph who made the news when he lived outside the Atlanta Falcons training facility in the “Tent of Faith.” We get his story; his prospect for a position; his struggles; and, his influence of tenacity.


    They close it out with some sports odds and ends including the NBA and NHL Playoffs as well as some developments out of NCAA football.


    THIS is one packed program . . . which will also be including you and YOUR calls at 347 – 826 – 9964!


    BRING IT . . . and bring your best to “The Frat House Gang” – Frat House Mike, Uncle Mark, Sidekick, and Brandon!

    How Improving the Candidate Experience Empowers a Better Workforce

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, at its new time from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how disruptive technologies will empower the future of HR, and this week we’re going to talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce.


    The hiring economy today is highly complex. Even though job growth has improved dramatically in the past 14 months, employers still struggle to fill jobs due to talent shortages.


    The Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards were created to provide a universal measure of the candidate experience. The “winners” are the ones empowering a better workforce.


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we talk about how improving the candidate experience empowers a better workforce with this week’s guests: Elaine Orler, Chairman and Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs; and Gerry Crispin, Co-Founder of the Talent Board and the CandEs.


    Thank you to all our TalentCulture sponsors and partners: Dice, Jibe, RecruitiFi, TalentWise, Hootsuite, IBM, CareerBuilder, PeopleFluent, Silkroad, Predictive Analytics World for Workforce and HRmarketer Insight. Plus, we're big CandE supporters!

    Grace Klein Community: Kwathu Children’s Home & Beats and Books

    in Current Events

    An Intervention- Kwathu Children’s Home: Gertrude, born to a young single girl, barely old enough to take care of herself, became a ‘mom’ to her 2 year old, half-brother, at a tiny age of 6 years. Gertrude and Linto were the ‘results’ of a young woman trying to survive through the only way she knew how, prostitution. Naturally, the two children were unplanned, and the young woman was certainly in no position to care for them. Having to fight for survival, Gertrude would wrap her little brother on her back and walk into the township and steal food.  Someone noticed that these two children were in desperate need for care, and took action.  6 years have passed, and Gertrude and Linto have blossomed into two incredible children. They found their home, their foundation and their future.


    Beats and Books: A similar story yet in another part of Africa is that of a young girl with little knowledge of her Mom's whereabouts. The death of her father had so little consequence as he was only a man whose last name she bears. Her name is Yonela which means "enough." She has no one to look to except the strangers in her life who have consistently shown her love and care and have become her family. Two years ago, through our intervention, Yonela was moved into a private school where she has learned quickly how to read and write. Every week, she spends atleast 9 hours learning musical skills and improving her literacy with people who believe in changing her circumstances in our after-school program. Yonela has begun to dream.

    If You Keep Moving, You'll Keep Improving

    in Fun

    Today is the 22nd annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day.and the theme for this year's activities is, "If you keep moving, you'll keep improviing." 


    That's a theme that's been consistant with this show from when we started here on Blog Talk Radio seven years ago. It's always been my major goal to provide encouragement to boomers and above to stay active or to get active if for some reason you haven't been in a while. There are so many things you can do and new ones coming along all the time.


    Just last month we had a National Masters Swim competition here in San Antonio. As a volunteer with the San Antonio Sports Foundation I took part in the event and it was so encouraging to see things like one heat between three men that were all in their ninties. What have you got planned for your 90's?


    On today's show I'll give you an overview of activities and how to get started. If you've got a question, the listener line 347-934-0549 is available and I'll do my best to help you.

    Conscious Parenting and Personal Growth part 18 with Nazim Rashid

    in Self Help

    Life Coach, Personal Development Specialist, Author and Radio Talk-Show Host Nazim Rashid is the guest speaker today continuing his series on Improving, Repairing and Preparing for Relationships based on his book Reconnected-How To Be A Mentor To Your Child-Self.  In the media reports, reality shows and among friends, you hear a great deal about weddings; the feelings; the glow, the friends, the gowns, suits, the wedding venue, the biggest diamond ring, the fun, the excitement, etc. You don’t hear anything about what it takes to have a committed, long lasting, healthy, happy marriage. You don’t hear about the joy attained from a spiritually connected relationship. You don’t hear about how commitment carries over the challenging hurdles and how loving the spirit inside connects you to each other, no matter how the exterior changes over time. You don’t hear about these things because it is not in the fun and exciting category. There are tools provided in the book Reconnected that speak to the areas of longevity, happiness, health and real bonding that is needed for a long term relationship to exist. Nazim will continue with Identifying and Managing Emotions in order to have the happiest, stable marriages. www.cloudsofabundance.com

    "Family talk Wednesday" A Parent Should Be A Parent…Not A Friend

    in Family

    Every time I hear a parent brag that her child is her best friend, I cringe and think, “Well, that’s too bad.”  The job description of parent is mighty long—nurturer, teacher, advisor, consultant, guide, spotter, disciplinarian, consoler, cheerleader.  But I am quite sure “friend” is not on the list.  I fully believe that you really like your child, that there are times when you get along like peas and carrots, that you say you can read each other’s minds. But your child, whether young or old, needs you to be her parent. She has enough friends, and so do you. I know that you don’t get to spend much time with your child; both of your schedules are packed 24/7.  So you want what little time you have together to be pleasant. I know it’s just easier to say yes, and everyone will be happy…for the moment.


    Children are not like self-basting turkeys; they just can’t grow themselves.  Children will seek all the good stuff they can get—be it extra tv time, cookies from the platter, or minutes at the mall. And they count on you to stop them, to rein them back in. It is their job to test the limits; it is your job to stop them.  And as children get older, more than ever they rely on you to be their brakes, especially when faced with peer pressure. “No, my dad will kill me if I get home after curfew.” Your child needs to know that you love her so much that you will tolerate her explosive protest when you lay down the law and you will not change your mind because of it.  Nothing can be more important to you than her well being, her safety, and her learning the rules of the road.
