    Tom Dowd – Displacement Day

    in Business

    Mike Brenhaug interviews Tom Dowd on eTALKS to discuss Tom's new book Displacement Day. Tom Dowd is a graduate of the University of Delaware with a Communication degree. Tom is a prize-winning speaker, award-winning author,and trainer—all spurred by his need to be more than a painfully shy and introverted individual on a rollercoaster ride of success. 


    Tom received the call nobody wanted:  “We’re downsizing.”  After unexpectedly losing his full-time job, Tom landed in a better place in just 59 days using methods from his coaching and training.  He is now a VP at one of the larger financial institutions in North America.  In 2011, he started his own side business “Thomas Dowd Professional Development & Coaching” where he continues to use the lessons learned on his climb up the corporate ladder to help people creatively find ways to differentiate themselves in the workplace and to find their own individual paths toward success. The mantra is “Transform into who you really want to be.” On what was thought to be a typical work day, author Thomas Dowd received The Call Nobody Wants:  “We’re downsizing.” In the midst of an economic downturn, the author had some choices to make in how to most effectively approach the new journey. Displacement Day is for anyone who has ever had the unfortunate—or fortunate—task of finding a job.

    Mahshid Farhoudi - Identity, Displacement, Belonging

    in Art

    Mahshid Farhoudi is a figurative painter who explores issues of identity, displacement and belonging through her work.
    "My art practice draws from Iranian and occidental sources. Both figurative and architectural elements are central to my painting. Although aware of new trends in figuration, I have been appropriating symbols, icons and imagery from my culture and from my Canadian context to affirm my position to issues that I consider important. The relationship between my painted figures and their architectural contexts creates a dialogue within the work. It is this textural element that is of great interest to me. There is a direct relationship between the subject of my paintings and the techniques I employ."

    Finding Home: How Americans Prevail Over Displacement

    in Self Help

    By the time I was 17 years old, I had lived in 16 different homes. My father was in the military, and there was order and structure in the process. Still, it was a challenge. Every place I moved, I felt displaced and had to establish myself and my energy in my new environment. What about vets, foster kids, single moms, laid off workers, retirees and small business owners? Our society hands them “problems” to solve on an everyday basis. ?So what is a home? It is not just a physical dwelling. For some, home means being part of a heritage or tradition; for others it signifies a spiritual space. Sometimes it is a place found only in the mind, or in the heart. For a few, home simply means feeling right within one’s own skin.  Finding Home is a book about people who are searching for, or trying to keep, a home, and about people who have come off their center and how they have righted themselves. Sally Ooms has discovered that such people are doing more than just coping. They are innovators in their own lives. Join me for this deep look at how Americans prevail over displacement.

    Travel Today - The One&Only Palmilla

    in Travel

    This week's episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. After being hit by Hurricane Odile in September 2014, Los Cabos was badly damaged. Like many other properties, the One&Only Palmilla suffered major wounds and had to close for a massive recovery and rebuilding effort. But now it’s back, and some would say, better than ever.


    The resort’s staff pulled together as a community in one of the stronger examples of a public/private partnership. Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, talks about disaster tourism and why now is the time to go to Los Cabos. Then the President of the Los Cabos Humane Society, Aida Trujillo, talks about animal displacement after the storm and how visitors can help…including international pet adoption! (Hint—you get to fly your new pet home…for free!). All of this and more on this week's Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The One&Only Palmilla.
