    Casey Weston Live

    in Military

    Join us this week as we welcome country music singer songwriter, Casey Weston. Casey is recognized as one of the young stars whose combination of talent, personality and charisma helped launch the hit television show The Voice. While on the voice Casey was called “little Stevie Nicks” by pop music star Cee Lo Green; lauded by country music star Blake Shelton and told she was a musical “Bad Ass destined to be a star” by her coach and mentor Adam Levine. Casey has written, produced and released two albums; a self-titled release at the end of 2009 with 10 tracks and the second at the end of February of 2013; a 13 track album called Find the Moon. Both albums contain music & lyrics that Casey wrote or co-wrote. Both albums are available through iTunes, CD Baby and other popular digital & physical music distribution outlets. In 2015 Casey is releasing the single Fallin for a Lie, and then her next full album, Young Heart. Casey may be young but her work ethic and performance experience help her project a welcome balance of youthful energy and a road-tested touring musician and performer. We will talk to Casey about her upcoming schedule, get a behind the scenes look at her music, feature her latest songs, and ask her to share her message for the troops. Please be sure to visit Casey Weston at http://caseyweston.com/ and spread the word. Fans are welcome to call in and speak live with Casey during the show (718) 766-4193.

    Intersectionality & Diversity in the Tech Industry: Challenge of Silicon Valley

    in Business

    This interview is a three-way discussion between the host, Franne McNeal, the author, Dr. Fay Cobb Payton and Dr. Wayne M. Wormley.


    Dr. Fay Cobb Payton published a book in 2014 entitled: Leveraging Intersectionality: Seeing and Not Seeing, in which she discussed digital and social inclusion in technology oriented fields. Her work is a reflection of the earlier diversity efforts (from the 80’s and 90’s to the new millennium), to create productive and healthy work environments that naturally attract the best and brightest talent, globally. Here we are in 2015 and we see these efforts have not succeeded, especially in technology oriented/STEM fields.

    Guest: Dr. Fay Cobb Payton, Founding Director, MyHealthImpactNetwork, a social network experience that focuses on health disparities and social media technology interventions. @MyHealthImpact provides “voice” for the millennial generation about health, culture and technology innovation topics. www.MyHealthImpactNetwork.org, https://www.linkedin.com/in/drfay, www.twitter.com/MyHealthImpact



    Guest: Dr. Wayne M. Wormley, President, The Wormley Company, an extensive network of consultants and trainers, that provides clients with cost-effective solutions to interpersonal and organizational performance and productivity issues, by creating a work environment in which everyone can do their best work and achieve their full potential. www.linkedin.com/pub/wayne-wormley/5/394/575

    How to Maintain a Minimal Digital Footprint.. How transparent are you?

    in Blogs

    This show is about maintaining a minimal online presence or "digital footprint."  We will be discussing different ways to remain "OPSEC," or less visible but still be able to communicate or browse online.  We will be going over different ways to remain less visible or "stealth," by using different software, locking down your applications with encryption and other ways.  


    We will also be going over different reasons on why to remain "OPSEC," or have a less visible presence online.  This could for employment reasons, personal reasons, giving out business information, etc.  By keeping a minimal "digital footprint," this can allow you to keep on doing your thing but flying under the radar.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with Michael Gayk, Educator, Digital Designer and Maker

    in Art

     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday, April 16th, 2015 at 3:00 PST/ 6:00 EST is Michael Gayk, educator, digital designer and maker of things.


    Please join us for this LIVE interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom at Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. 


    About Michael: 


    Michael Gayk earned an MFA in Jewelry and Metals from the University of Washington and an BFA in Metals Design from the College for Creative Studies.


    Plural Studios is a design collaboration between Courtney Starrett and Michael Gayk. Plural is interested in creating well-designed objects for the home or body, utilizing innovative digital technologies to create limited editions of our objects. We are inspired by architecture on a micro-level; observing transitions, connections, and details, as the sum of all parts, both man-made and natural.  At Plural we strive for accessibility along with high design objects both for the home and the body.


    “My current work investigates the relationship between body adornment and the digitized human body. Historically jewelry has always reflected the technologies of its time. A necklace fashioned from seashells dating 80 BCE years old was found at Taforalt in eastern Morocco. This discovery illustrates the sense of symbolic material value of that time and suggests a developed capacity for cultural modernity. The example of the seashell necklace comes from a genus of marine snail called Nassarius, which no longer inhabits the shores of Morocco today. With the use of advanced manufacturing methods such at bio-printing and DNA duplication it may be possible to cultivate the lost Nassarius, or any biological structure.”

    The Art of Stillness with Acclaimed Travel Writer, Pico Iyer

    in Self Help

    Sister Jenna welcomes travel writer Pico Iyer on the America Meditating Radio Show!  Why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate adventure? Because in our madly accelerating world, our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. There’s never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still.


    Pico Iyer was born in England, to parents from India, and was educated at Eton, Oxford and Harvard. He began his career documenting a neglected aspect of travel -- the sometimes surreal disconnect between local tradition and imported global pop culture. He has written 12 books, exploring also the cultural consequences of isolation, whether writing about the exiled spiritual leaders of Tibet or the embargoed society of Cuba.


    Pico’s latest focus is on another overlooked aspect of travel: how can it help us regain our sense of stillness and focus in a world where our devices and digital networks increasing distract us? He is a contributor to many magazines, writer of screenplays and liner-notes and introductions to 40 other books. His newest book is, "The Art of Stillness."  Visit http://picoiyerjourneys.com and watch Ted Talk on the Art of Stillness.
