    Congress Must Delay Netanyahu's Speech

    Congress Must Delay Netanyahu's Speech


    Breaking with longstanding protocol, GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner recently invited Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to address a joint session of Congress without proper consultation with the White House or his Democratic colleagues.


    There's no issue with Israel's leader addressing America's legislators. In fact, we welcome it. But the timing here--weeks before Israeli elections, and as Congress is debating legislation (aggressively backed by Netanyahu) that could impact our sensitive negotiations with Iran--couldn't be worse, and we need your help in making that clear.


    Every Member of Congress has a responsibility to let Speaker Boehner know that this invitation is inappropriate, and that the speech must be delayed.

    "...As in many cases in the past, Netanyahu’s attempts to confront Obama on the president’s home court boomeranged. Once again Netanyahu ended up on the losing side. Having no meetings with any senior administration officials, with an agenda that has turned temporarily irrelevant, and in a situation where his trip could cause more damage than good, perhaps Netanyahu would do better to stay at home and focus on his election campaign."

    As long as Obama is in the White House, he has no intention of meeting Netanyahu. If reelected, the Israeli PM may find himself abandoned and...

    Never make an Elevator Speech Again! ~ with guest Felicia Slattery

    in Marketing

    Our special guest is Felicia Slattery.  She just authored a fabulous book called Kill the Elevator Pitch: Stop Selling, Start Connecting.  I can’t wait for us to explore what that means on this episode...


    It’s almost like the definition of insanity. We’re all taught that we need an “elevator speech” just as much as we need a business card, a website, and air to breathe in order to be successful. But the crazy part is NO ONE likes to give those canned elevator speeches and NO ONE likes to hear them because they’re usually full of blah, blah, blah meaningless marketing drivel and feel very contrived and yucky.


    More importantly, evidence proves even the most well-crafted and best-delivered elevator speeches don’t work to bring in new business. And they completely fall flat on establishing a new business relationship.  


    Come and find out what to do instead. It has something to do with… not selling, but connecting.  


    During this interview Felicia is sharing:


    • The 3 main reasons why the “elevator speech” doesn’t work anymore for business (if it ever did!).


    • If not an “elevator speech” what exactly you can say when someone asks you what you do so you can naturally participate in a conversation and honor the other person as an actual human being (gasp! Yes you can!).


    • The only 5 words you need to remember to never have to hear another elevator speech ever again, short-cut the relationship-building, and get to the know-like-and-trust part right away – without sounding canned or unnatural.


    If you have any questions you'd like to ask, send them into info@keystoclarity.com ahead of the show.

    #252 Ideas for Toddlers Who Don't Sit Still for Speech Therapy

    in Parents

    Join pediatric speech-language pathologist Laura Mize, M.S., CCC-SLP as she provides ideas for a mom who complained that her child can't sit still to work with her on developing language and has difficulty maintaining attention during therapy sessions. 


    From Laura... Here's the truth... MANY late talking toddlers can't (not WON'T) sit still. We'll BRIEFLY talk about why that is and then move on to ideas that WORK for our friends who need to move, move, move. Here's a list of things I do with my busiest little friends:



    Do what they like!
    Decrease demands overall so that a child doesn't feel "forced." Participation is your ONLY goal. This can dramatically help!!
    Don't sit... MOVE! Target language during gross motor movement or outside playground activities such as sliding, jumping on a trampoline, swinging, etc...
    Try social games where moving is a part of the game - Ring Around the Rosies, Row Row Your Boat, Ride a Little Horsie - verbal routines during those games to target receptive and expressive language.
    Introduce play that involves moving - improvise a basketball game even without a hoop, bowling, launcher toys, and relay games
    Work on Structured Teaching Tasks - TEACCH method
    Over time begin to alternate activities move - sit - move - sit
    Modify a child's space so that movement is less of an option. Beware....belting them into a high chair is usually NOT a good option! 
    Don't try strategies for older children like "if/then." Many times our little friend DON'T understand that promise.
    Reinforce sitting.

    Pope Francis on Free Speech

    in News

    In this episode, Sacerdotus comments on the Pope's recent comments stating that free speech is limited and should not be used to offend others.  The comments have been interpreted as controversial.  Others claim that the Pope was blaming the victims of the Charlie Hebdo tragedy.  Sacerdotus elaborates on the comments and shows how the Pope was not blaming anyone and was simply stating that we should use free speech responsibly.
