• Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman: Your child can be more than his test scores

    in Psychology

    Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science.


    On this show, a "Best Of" replay, cognitive psychologist Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman lays out why intelligence tests currently used are far too limiting in determining a student’s true potential. 


    Kaufman is a rigorous researcher whose work I know and respect, but his new book, UNGIFTED: Intelligence Redefined, offers much more than science. It offers inspiration in Kaufman’s own story as a “late listener” (due to a spate of ear infections) who was put into learning disabled classes. And then, in 9th grade, through sheer determination, pushed his way into a gifted kids’ class -- ultimately going on to Yale, getting a Ph.D., then going on to become a young professor at NYU.


    On this show, we’ll discuss the limitations of current testing and a host of other things that matter in whether a child succeeds and how Scott thinks we would better assess talent, creativity, and “the many paths to greatness.”


    Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sun, 7-8 p.m. Pacific, 10-11 p.m. Eastern, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.


    Please buy my science-based and funny book on better human behavior, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck."  Along with positive reviews in the WSJ and other publications, Library Journal gave the book a starred review: "Verdict: Solid psychology and a wealth of helpful knowledge and rapier wit fill these pages. Highly recommended."

  • Ministry and Money Part 8

    in Christianity

    Here are some more common reasons people give for wanting to be involved in ministry:


    “My parents were ministers; the mantle has fallen on my generation now. Besides, what else would I do?” The Lord’s ministry can’t be passed down from one generation to the next because relationship, His Personal Presence, can’t be passed down.


    “I want to be able to spend all my energy, efforts and time with God. Being involved in public ministry will keep me safe and in His will.” But the church, and ministry in particular, was never meant to be a haven from the world or a guarantee against making mistakes.


    “I can do it better than what I see being done.” This probably disqualifies you from that project, at least for now.


    “Look at all God has done for me! The least I can do for Him is serve Him and His people.” You’re not doing the Lord any favors by trying to do His work for Him.


    “I want my life to mean something. I want it to have eternal consequences and rewards.” None of us knows what is coming next, so to try to make decisions now, and use the unknown future as a motivator, robs us of the satisfaction and relationship that the Lord has for us in the present.


    “God healed and set me free. Now I want to heal and free others.” We are to neither give nor withhold according to our own judgment, but in each case depend on the Lord for His direction, resources and results.


    “I need to help people; I’m happiest ministering to people.”


    “I’m just following the Great Commission to ‘GO’.”


    “Even if God didn’t have this ministry planned for me, I’m sure He appreciates all the work I’ve done for Him.”

    Eric Garner and why we no longer trust the police.

    in Hobbies

    The police can openly kill people, this is well known, but why and when did it become a race issue? In the short time I have, I will be discussing some controversial facts that people don't like to hear about the Mike Brown case, the Eric Garner case, and distrust of the police. I will also address the slaying of the two officers in NY, an act that does nothing but spread hate. If you have a faith, send your prayers to the families. 

  • Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 990

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Yanette (Lola Lola) Novoa, LCSW, from Miami, a child abuse survivor who studied psychology at Florida International University and is now writing a guide related to the issues of child abuse and trauma. Lola is the Founder and Director of Find The Way, LLC, and is publishing a new guide related to learning how to heal from child abuse and trauma. She says, "I know the pain, I know how it feels." Lola's childhood was taken away. She had been assaulted and raped from the age of 4 to the age of 12, ending in an illegal abortion at 12 in the presence of the perpetrator who forever changed her life. The new guide book, "Dare to Let Go and "Thrive": A Self Help Guide for Learning to Thrive After Experiencing Sexual Abuse", will be out next year. It invites the reader to learn the fundamental difference between "Thriving" versus surviving. Surviving is being able to function within a society. "Thriving" leads to living a meaningful life. Former victims of sexual assault can use the steps and strategies in this self help guide to point the way in becoming the thriving individual they are meant to be. Ms Novoa believes the key to all malice is "Prevention." In the long run, it is easier and cheaper to prevent than to treat. She specializes in working and assisting individuals of all ages that have suffered sexual abuse and are in need of finding their way to living a more meaningful life via different therapeutic techniques. Lola says, "I put together this guide mainly to .. give you some techniques to solve your own problems related to the long term effects of sexual abuse that you are carrying with you either consciously or unconsciously .. to be the thriving individual that you were meant to be.

  • Getting Back to Our Roots

    in Religion

    Necrophelia, pedophelia, and creationism all have a place at the table on tonight's show.  The war on Christmas has now apparently been won and isn't it just like the Christian Church to be a little too late on changing the Doctrine of Discovery.  The Satanic Temple expanding chapters starting in Detroit.  A case in the Satanic Panic comes to a head in Texas.  The Church of Satan defines itself once again, So listen Already!
