Watch The New Lyric Video For John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth (Ultimate Mix)” From ‘Imagine’ Box Set

first_imgCapitol Records has shared a fonts-friendly new lyric video the 1971 John Lennon track “Gimme Some Truth (Ultimate Mix)”. The track initially appeared on Lennon’s Imagine LP, which was recently reissued as an expanded deluxe edition titled, Imagine – The Ultimate Collection, and arrived just last month on October 5th.The video can be seen and heard in full below, and takes the time to literally spell out every lyrical message which Lennon frustratingly attempted to get off his chest back in 1971, when the Vietnam War and other serious matters seemed to dominate world headlines. It’s tough to argue with Lennon’s honest and vulnerable lyrics like, “All I want is the Truth,” and referring to the day’s politicians as “neurotic, psychotic, [and] pig-headed.” Lennon, of course, was never one to mince words, especially in his post-Beatles days when the famous singer and guitarist furiously attempted to distance himself from the innocent, adorable mop-top image from the early days of Beatlemania.“It’s about politicians, newspaper men and all the hypocrites of the world,” John Lennon admits about the meaning behind his lyrics in the track’s liner notes. “I think that music reflects the state that the society is in. There is nothing to hide. Not really.”The refurbished recording of “Gimme Some Truth (Ultimate Mix)” is just one of the many treats for fans included in the enormous 146-track Imagine expanded edition box set. The fan-friendly reissue also includes a mix of initial writing and demo recordings from Lennon’s home studio as well as alternate takes and interviews alongside his then-wife and creative collaborator, Yoko Ono. Speaking of Yoko, the artist, songwriter and equally famous New York native released her own studio album earlier this fall with Warzone. The 13-track album was her first studio effort since 2013, and is comprised of reworked material initially written and recorded over the years, including her own romantically inspiring recording of “Imagine”.You can watch the brand new video below: John Lennon – “Gimme Some Truth (Ultimate Mix)”<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>[Video: johnlennon][H/T Rolling Stone]last_img read more

Challenge Yourself to Save

first_imgBy Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, [email protected] is “hump month” for personal finances. Half of the year is already over but there are still five + months to make positive financial management changes such as saving money, reducing income taxes, and paying off debt. In an effort to help military families build wealth, the Military Families Learning Network Personal Finance (MFLNPF) team is sponsoring the 30 Days of Saving Challenge during July 2016. Professionals who serve military families are invited to participate and to encourage the military families that they serve to do likewise.The goal of the 30 Days of Saving Challenge is simple: save $100 in a 30-day time period through a series of gradually increasing deposits. July has 31 days so the last day, July 31, is a “day off.” As shown in the picture below, daily savings deposits start at $1 a day and do not increase beyond $5 a day. Once the monthly savings goal is reached, the Challenge can be repeated on a month-to-month basis for total annual savings of $1,200. When the Challenge starts to feel “easy,” it can be scaled up by doubling or tripling the daily savings amounts.Join the MFLNPF team during July for the 30 Days of Saving Challenge. Save yourself and encourage others to do the same. You’ll have $100 set aside by July 31 and will be developing a positive lifetime habit. If 1,000 people save $100, that’s $100,000 of savings! Use the hashtag #MFLNPF to comment on your Challenge experience. For example, how did you “find” the money to save? Did you reduce expenses, increase income, or both?For a print copy of the 30 Days of Saving Challenge worksheet, see read more

Reflections on the RBI: Part One

first_imgDuring the recent webinar entitled Opening Doors with Families Using the Routines-Based Interview, many of our Early Intervention providers, expressed concern about the amount of time it takes to complete the RBI. You also voiced concern over how a family may feel during the process and how you feel about the RBI process. The MFLN FDEI team asked a former service coordinator, a parent, and a RBI trainer for their thoughts on these issues. Here is what they had to say. Point of View of a Service Coordinator:“What do you mean the interview should take at least an hour? At least an hour? What?!?!? Do you know how many other things I have to get done during an intake? Medical history, developmental history, Ages & Stages assessment, receipt of rights, consents, insurance, etc. Parents are not going to want me in their house long enough to complete all of that! Besides, why in the world do I need to know every detail about every aspect of the family’s day?”Do any of these questions (ok, exasperations) sound familiar? I will be the first to admit that I was more than a little skeptical when my state first introduced the Routines Based Interview (RBI) as a required component of the intake process. It seemed like an intrusion that most families just would not like. As a service coordinator, it was my job to help families understand the early intervention system all the while doing my best to relieve any fears or concerns they might have regarding the evaluation process. It was a job I took very seriously.Looking back at my initial reaction to the RBI, I think most of my resistance stemmed from a belief that I was already collecting very similar information regarding the family’s concerns as well as their daily routines. I did not see the point of using a formal tool to gather information that could be obtained in other, less structured ways. What I learned from the RBI process, however, was how helpful it was in helping me identify specific times of the day where interventions could be naturally embedded. It provided a more holistic picture of the family and how to write IFSP outcomes that were individualized, rather than identical to those of 10 other families on my caseload.Point of View of a Parent (who is also a future EI provider):I remember going into the EI program with some anxiety. I did not know what to expect. I had never heard of EI until my son’s pediatrician mentioned it at his 2 yr. old check-up. So when the service coordinator contacted me for a time to meet, I agreed to a time but was apprehensive about having someone I didn’t know come into my home to ask me questions about my family. What was she going to think? Was she going to judge us based on how our home looked or what we wore? I made sure the house was super clean and I was looked presentable, just in case.When the service coordinator came to the door, she was very friendly right from the start and throughout the initial meeting. As we talked at our dining table, she explained the process to reassure me about the paperwork and the documentation she was taking. I do not recall going through the RBI process but rather it just seemed like a natural conversation. I remember the service coordinator asking about my son’s delivery, our medical history, and any diagnoses on either my or my husband’s side of the family. I only faintly recall her asking me to talk through a typical day for us. She asked if there were any struggles we had during the day and I don’t think I had any concerns with that. If she did do the RBI, it may have lasted 10 minutes or so but not an hour.To be honest, as a parent, I cannot imagine how well a full RBI would have gone at that point. Having already answered a bunch of questions that I had to really think about to ensure accuracy, to then have to think about every detail of a “typical day” for our family? Yikes! Talk about exhausting!Now that I am looking at the RBI from a future provider’s perspective, I can see that it is a good thing to ask families about their routines. This allows the provider the opportunity to get to know the family better and to find out their priorities in terms of improvements they want to see for their child and for their family. I do think that trying to schedule the RBI at another time could be helpful so that the Service Coordinator and the family are not doing the intake and the RBI during one session, possibly lasting much longer than either of them desire. On the other hand, I know it can be hard to schedule times to meet and that it might be easier to do everything at one time. It is hard to know what the best solution is, but this is definitely something to always be mindful of when meeting new families.Point of View of a Routines-Based Interview Trainer and Coach:A written transcript of this video can be found here.This post was edited by Robyn DiPietro-Wells & Michaelene Ostrosky, PhD, members of the MFLN FD Early Intervention team, which aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.

But it’s important from a very fundamental level. The level of consciousness your prospects and clients are at, at any given time, is going to impact the way you interact with them and the way they understand and receive the things you have to say – including your sales presentation and responses to their objections. Today’s episode is a conversation with Ken Wilber, a leading philosopher who has done a lot of research about these levels of consciousness and what he has come to call “Integral Theory.” If you take the time to work through this conversation you’re going to benefit a good deal.As a business professional are you aware of the various levels of consciousness?Click To TweetBusiness people tend to be strong in certain levels of consciousness.When it comes to being a superstar in business or sales there are characteristics that lend themselves to greater success. Performance. Accomplishment. Competitiveness. When a person reaches the higher stages of consciousness in terms of intellect and reasoning, he or she can be very good at sales or business leadership. But if that person has not grown equally in other areas that have to do with their moral center as an individual, extortion, insider trading, and much more is the result. Ken Wilber explains these issues on this episode, so be sure you listen. You need to understand where your company culture is in these stages of consciousness.It’s obvious that companies have cultures. What we see is that the culture is often made up of people at varying levels of development within the company. Those differences in development often determine the roles the individuals play within the company. And when those differing levels of consciousness come into conflict with each other, personality and interpersonal problems begin to occur. Often the problems are never addressed because the root of the conflicts is not understood adequately.You need to understand where your company culture is in these stages of consciousnessClick To TweetWhy you can’t say that all hierarchies are bad.One of the trends we see in the world and in business today are trends that are moving away from the idea of hierarchical business structures and organization. But the root belief of the movement is that hierarchy and ranking are inherently bad. But the reality is that there are different types of hierarchy and throwing all of them out causes a narcissistic dominance that nobody benefits from or wants. On this episode Ken Wilber explains why growth hierarchies are actually a good thing and how they function in any organization or business to bring about advancement and growthHow mindfulness can profoundly affect health and longevity.Mindfulness is a practice of dropping beliefs and judgments and becoming aware of the moment. Meditation is one of the practices that enables people to become more mindful and the regular practice of it will help people move from one level of consciousness to another, effectively growing the person in a “waking up” sort of way.

SDGE to Build 3000 Electric Chargers for Medium and HeavyDuty Vehicles

first_img Posted: August 15, 2019 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego Gas & Electric announced plans Thursday to build electric charging infrastructure for 3,000 vehicles such as buses, delivery trucks and forklifts.SDG&E received approval from the California Public Utilities Commission to build at least 3,000 plug-in chargers for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicle tailpipes. Roughly 30 percent of those will be installed in areas facing higher pollution levels or economic and health challenges.According to SDG&E, its service areas in San Diego and southern Orange County have more than 103,000 Class 2 through 8 commercial vehicles. Those heavy-duty vehicles, which weigh between 6,000 and 33,000 pounds, emit more carbon than all of the California’s power plants combined.“SDG&E’s MD/HD initiative would provide EV charging stations to support large equipment and vehicles that pollute our air, therefore reducing harmful emissions,” said Robert Kard, the air pollution control officer at the county’s Air Pollution Control District.SDG&E also recently asked the CPUC for permission to add a new electricity pricing option that would make electricity pricing for vehicles more competitive with gas prices for businesses that switch to using electric vehicles.To date, SDG&E has already installed roughly 3,000 electric chargers for personal vehicles at apartments, condominiums and workplaces in San Diego and Orange counties.“Imagine a future where zero-emission trucks carry produce and merchandise to your local stores and zero-emission school buses pick up and drop off your children,” said Estela de Llanos, SDG&E’s vice president of clean transportation, sustainability. “With this new initiative, our region is headed to a new phase of the clean transportation movement.” Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter SDG&E to Build 3,000 Electric Chargers for Medium and Heavy-Duty Vehicles KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, August 15, 2019last_img read more
