When Francis Kong was five years old, his father sat him down and told him he had two choices in life - he could be a physician or he could be a failure.
At the end of his second year at the Royal College of Surgeons, one of his professors told him that he should go and have fun on his spring break because once he was back, it would be heads down with no time off for many years. So, together with a couple of medical school buddies, he boarded a 747 to Barcelona, Spain for what he hoped would be two weeks of fun in the sun. As they attempted to land at the Barcelona airport, the plane experienced what Francis thought was turbulence – followed by a failed attempt to land. Shortly after that the intercom came on and the pilot made an announcement – but it was in Spanish. The only thing word he could understand was one that was being repeated over and over: “Emergencia, emergencia.” In those last few seconds, Francis saw in his mind’s eye, his mom, his dad, his sisters and the faces of all of his mentors.
“I told them I loved them very, very much. I thanked them for all of the gifts they had given me in my life. And I said, ‘goodbye’ – I am so sorry I had to go now.”
Francis survived his near-death experience but life for him would never be the same. He formed Edge Interns in College and learned how to mentor young people on a large scale. Then in 2012, he founded Edge Interns to help young people figure out what their dreams are and help them to make them come true as early as possible. There were 5 interns in Edge’s first year, now there are more than 330 from very prestigious institutions around the country.

Attorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss the topic of interns. CBS and Worldwide Pants, the production company behind the “Late Show With David Letterman,” are embroiled in a class-action lawsuit that was filed first by a woman that claims that she worked as an intern on the show, and was wrongfully denied wages and overtime pay. Should all internships be paid or should some remain unpaid positions? Tune in to hear the hosts discuss the intern debate.
Six male interns on a mission take on love, the sage and their dreams, after a dip in the pool.

How To Outsource With Interns Is the Subject Of Today's Call.
Today’s call is with Justin Lee. Justin Lee is the Owner and CEO of InternProfits.com. Justin will be discussing the benefits, ins and outs of outsourcing and a solution that is virtually untapped in the marketplace. Just will explain how solo businesses, small businesses and even middle market businesses can tap into the power of outsourcing, without the headache of working with or dealing with overseas workers.
What Justin will be sharing is how you can work with the very best talent at a fraction of the cost of a full time hire.
Join Heather Steele with guest host Christopher Harris from Faith Growth. Learn how to conquer your fear of hiring employees and interns and how to go from a solopreneur business to bringing on your first employees.
Topics included in this chat:
It seems like alot of the business owners I talk to are really afraid of the thought of hiring someone, did you have any fear or reservations before you jumped in?
What was the deciding factor for you? What made you bite the bullet and bring someone on
If you could give 3 pieces of advice to someone else in the position you were in, what would that be?
I know you've brought on an intern to work with you, is that different for you than a full time employee?
Did you hire them directly or work with the University?
I believe in hiring people who are better than you at what they do, but interns come to us needing their skillset developed. Do you find there are other benefits of working with interns vs full time employees?
Will you be expanding your team any further? What does the future hold for your intern?

Jerry Seinfeld stirred up some controversy after telling NBC's Brian Williams that he identifies with the autism spectrum. The reactions were immediate and passionate.Some activists have said that Jerry was shamed and bullied back into the closet.
Last week, Jerry reportedly backtracked. Outlets like the LA Times are claiming he self--diagnosed, and that he is now "recanting."
So, what is really going on? Did Jerry self--diagnose and then backtrack? Did he disclose that he identified, then felt the need to clarify---or backtrack? Is it all a misunderstanding? Does it matter?
The Thanksgiving holiday is just days away. What are you thankful for?

What could be wrong with an adult publicly disclosing how he identifies?
Sharing some personal insight, Jerry Seinfeld recently revealed in an interview that he thinks he is probably on the spectrum. And the autism community reacted. The positive, welcoming responses came out in spades from many autistic advocates, while some complained that he is "too successful" to really be autistic. And it dodn't stop there.
Bath and Body Works has been a successful business, but is experiencing backlash after several of its stores reportedly told people with disabilities to get out, or were blocked from coming in at all.
We'll dish it out on all of this on today's show.
