    Learning from Lean Healthcare - with Mark Graban

    in Business

    What can any CEO or business owner -- or any manager -- learn from the Lean movement, and especially, the growing adoption of Lean by the healthcare industry? How can you cut costs, improve quality, and boost employee engagement and work satisfaction, all at once?


    My guest is Mark Graban, author of Lean Hospitals and an expert on helping firms adop Lean thinking and Lean practices. 


    Mark has made Lean his career focus for nearly 20 years – starting with studying Dr. Deming’s work as an undergraduate engineering student at Northwestern University, then formally studying Lean in the classroom at Northwestern and as a master’s student at MIT, and then receiving extensive on-the-job mentoring and training.


    Mark has led and participated in Lean transformations in manufacturing and healthcare organizations. His books include Lean Hospitals, Healthcare Kaizen, and more.

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources

    in Education

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources.


    We've all experienced the museum as a place to go as a member of an elementary class or on a stormy weekend day. In the internet age, museums have an audience far beyond those who walk through the doors. Museums have a long history of creating resources to help teachers plan a class visit and materials for students that extend their visit into the classroom and home.


    In this show, we will explore a new generation of museums that provide rich experiences for learners that leverage the museums expertise and collections to extend their reach and impact on learners. We will hear how they plan and create those assets and discuss how they have or would like to work with publishers to increase the the reach and integration of their offerings into school practices. 


    Guests at the table:


    1. Kris Wetterlund, Director of Education and Interpretation at Corning Museum of Glass


    2. Dr. Marjee Chmiel, Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications at Smithsonian Science Education Center 


    3. Melissa Wadman, Manager of Program Evaluation at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access

    Surviving the Unthinkable Yet Keeping One's Faith

    in Current Events

    Joseph Dubowski, author of Cartwheels in the Rain, Finding Faith in the Wake of the Unthinkable wrote the book no parent wants to write.  On Valentine Day 2008, a lone gunman entered a University of Illinois classroom and killed six students. One of them was Dubowski’s lovely twenty-two-year-old daughter, Gayle, who loved to do Cartwheels in the Rain. His world was shattered; his faith tested to the core. “Day by day I felt deserted by God,” Dubowski says, “All day long I felt like I was walking under a cloud.”


    But despite the horror of that time, he learned to lean on Jesus. On Monday’s show we will view the role of Dubowski’s strong, if sometimes wavering, faith on his journey of shock and pain.

    Dr. Yates Free live Maths Class. Solving Maths Problems the easy Way Mondays

    in Music

    By applying perception, we can learn through GMX the composition of numbers. For example, what is this numerical symbol 5?  If you say five, then what proof do you have other than the fact that you have been told it is five?  Dr. Yates teaches the original symbols for the composition (arrangement) of numbers and letters in all languages universally.  The numerical symbol 5 is the only number out of ten basic numbers with the composition identifying it as such.  What are the codes of inscription identifying the number five? Graspmatix Video Tapes part 1 and 2 illustrate this and much more.

    REASONING:  According to Dr. Yates, reasoning can be defined as sound comprehensive logic.  GMX  teaches adults, and children how to apply reasoning in math the simple and fast way.  For example, when learning  the GMX  five times table, here are two easy steps.  Let's take  5x9=?  First, find the half of the number you are multiplying by 5, which is half of 9=4.5, secondly, remove the decimal point and the answer is 45.  GMX teaches times table 0-99 the fast and easy way!
