Empowerment
Are You Ready? The Information Economy IS Here! By Dr. Kas Henry

Last week we explored the role of education in shaping the transformational journey needed to compete successfully as a knowledge worker in today’s information economy.  This week, we will delve into what it takes to plan ahead to succeed in careers given the information economy. As the global economy evolves, we need to continue our own evolution to remain relevant if we seek economic empowerment.  Therefore, to sustain ourselves, change is inevitable.  The ability to change and deal with that change is the underpinning of transformation. You may have noticed that this show deals with empowerment as a continued journey of transformation.  Nowhere is this more aptly captured than in the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly.

.

  I can speak from personal experience that change is scary, especially change that grabs you and thrusts you into a totally unplanned and unexpected situation where there is no easy way out.  Such unexpected change showed-up in my life by way of a civil war shattering my expectation of home, family and all that is seen to be save and comforting….  Through no choice of mine, I became a refugee child in my own island nation, Sri Lanka, at the time I was in 8th grade.  I had to work through finishing up my O/Ls (10th Grade in the British system of Education) in my mother-tongue, Tamil, before leaving home, family and country to continue my education in India.

 

My whole world had changed, including the language I spoke.  I was in Bangalore, India, with no friends, family or anything familiar.  Just like the caterpillar, I had a task ahead…. A task of planning and executing my personal transformation so that when I emerged as a butterfly, at the end of that metamorphosis, I was ready to take flight.  So, I sat in my classes, took notes fanatically in my mother-tongue; using the dictionary and glossary of technical terms translated into English class notes. My daily learning was not limited to the subjects covered in class but the need to think, understand, write and communicate in English after doing all that in a different language up until then.  Was it scary? Certainly!  Did I have a choice? No!

I made strategic choices in my selection of specialization and elected to pursue a triple concentration in Computer Science, Math and Physics because they were subjects that used numbers and logic giving me freedom from language limitations.  This triple major also helped me plan my career options suited for the information economy from the very city that planned to become the seat of global technology, Bangalore. While in Bangalore, I developed the art of building lasting relationships, worked together with my peers for a successful shared journey and built a support system rooted in human kindness.  Bangalore is the city that helped me become the “butterfly” I am today.  To this day, I cherish my friends, extended family and countless caring human beings from various walks of life made my todays possible.

Change is not a threat but an opportunity to seek new possibilities.   Preparing for the information economy jobs in most parts of the world is not as traumatic as mine was but it can be challenging.

Just because the old era jobs no longer exist does not have to stop us from seeking new skills.  We are only limited by our own lack of imagination and tenacity.  Technology is disrupting every industry including Healthcare, Accounting, Finance, Retail, Business, Manufacturing, Communication and even human relationships.  Robotics and Bots are part of our lives and it is time we understood them.  Approaching technology as the enemy is not the prudent way to become empowered.  Embracing it and evolving to effectively utilize it is the pathway to success.

 

       

 

This week, we will engage in an exciting discussion with young professionals who have taken different routes to get to their current role as knowledge workers in the information economy.  Their diverse backgrounds and insights will help the listeners of “Unleash Your Inner Goldilocks: How to Get It Just Right” glean pointers in shaping their own transformational journey.  You will be surprised at the different ways one can pursue career success as long as the passion for pursuing success is alive.  Come join our conversation this Thursday and be a part of embracing the information economy for our shared success!

Bridging Collaboration between Patients and Healthcare Providers to Reduce Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI’s) By Nancy C. Caralla

“C. diff. Spores and More” Global Broadcasting Network
will host a special episode on their live radio program (cdiffradio.com)
airing on Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 1:00 pm EST featuring world-renowned
infectious disease expert, Dr. Hudson Garrett Jr., Global Chief Clinical Officer for Pentax Medical-Hoya Corporation and Chairperson of the Clinical Education Committee
for the C Diff Foundation.

This special episode, Bridging Collaboration Between Patients and Healthcare Providers to Reduce Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAI’s),  will feature a robust discussion on the patient’s role in preventing healthcare associated infections, an overview of medical device hygiene and infection control, the importance of antibiotic stewardship, and applications of evidence-based infection control measures across the entire healthcare continuum of care.

“Healthcare continues to become more and more complex as the acuity and needs of the patient changes along with the correlating technologies. Patients and Healthcare Providers must work together to mitigate the risk for Healthcare Associated Infections and other adverse events,” says Dr. Garrett.

The House Call Returns…With a Modern Twist by Marcia Zidle

When you need medical treatment do you go to a doctor’s office or clinic? Or would you prefer the doctor come to you in your home, office or even hotel? If yes, then imagine applying the best qualities of a service like Lyft or Uber to healthcare… convenience, mobile accessibility, personalized service and price transparency.

Make Health Care Convenient and Affordable for Everyone
My guest on this episode of The Business Edge is Dr Jonathan Clarke telling how his start-up, Mend, is improving the patient experience by delivering on-demand healthcare directly to people where they are. In other words, he and his medical team come to you! Dr Clarke is a board certified in emergency medicine and is a Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. As a decorated veteran, he served in the US Navy for over 14 years, with wartime tours as a physician in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Listen to This Podcast and Learn:
1. Why emotional intelligence is one of the best traits for leadership success;.
2. What it takes to challenge and overcome the status quo – we’ve always done it (health care) this way
3. How he is combining the best practices of patient care with technology resulting in more satisfied customers.
4. The procedures to insure distributed teams are focused on and aligned with the company’s mission and goals
5. How he follows Jim Collin’s advice: Get the right people in the right seats on the bus and the wrong people off.

Take Away: Sometimes You Have to Unlearn What You Learned
The leadership style that served him well in the military – command and control – is not the style that works well with highly skilled employees who work autonomously. And it won’t work with the younger generation. So he now leads by example, by ongoing communication and getting and valuing feedback. That’s why emotional intelligence is so important.

Zika virus – the NEXT scare, Be NOT afraid! by Nicholas St Jon

Zika virus is the “new” threat. BTW, they are NEVER gonna stop coming, there will always be something new and threatening, so learn what YOU can do, don’t wait for someone else to protect you.
Quit waiting for someone else to find the solution to the next epidemic or pandemic. I’d love for the CDC to do something, but they have already proven with West Nile and Ebola that they are simply not capable of doing hardly anything.
There’s NOT going to be a vaccine for Zika, after 14 years, almost 1,000 deaths and thousands maimed from WNV, still no vaccine nor is there likely to be one. All of the “authorities” websites say the exact same thing, there is NO treatment, there is NO cure. That’s reassuring!?!
They can simply duplicate those paragraphs when they create the Zika pages because its the same.
Its YOUR health, take charge for there is something you CAN do against ALL viral and bacterial infections like Zika and West Nile.
Occam’s razor says that all things being equal, the best solution to a problem is usually the easiest and simplest.
What is that solution? Its simple, do the opposite of what the “authorities” say makes you vulnerable to these infections in the first place, you’re vulnerable and reduce your chances of recovery if you have a weak or weakened immune system. The overly obvious answer would then be to “strengthen” your immune system, but they really don’t give you much help there.
So fasten your seat belts, here it is, the simplest, easiest, almost unbelievably powerful, most researched nutrient ever but the very foundation of the entire Immune System, fortify your white blood cells with plenty of Sodium Ascorbate. That’s it.
Sodium Ascorbate in significant amounts, like over 3,000 mg per day (not all at once), has shown so effective against all viruses its ridiculous that its been ignored for so long.
Its YOUR health, don’t wait for someone else to protect you, they’re simply not capable fast enough.
Learn more at bit dot ly / out-ahead to find 9 other things that supercharge the Immune System.

Tune in every Tuesday at 3pm PST to The Health Cure Show!

The Refirement Zone

The Refirement Zone

firewrks

To retire is to end something. It does not necessarily mean we have completed that something, or that something is over. We retire at the end of the day to go to sleep, but the day is not over; we fully expect to rise again the next day and begin again. We sleep because we are tired, but we hope to be energized the next day. Many people look forward to retirement from their work so that they might do nothing ever again.

But if you took that approach with sleeping, I bet you’d stay awake.

I dislike the word “retirement.” The AARP recently dropped “retirement” from its acronym (in fact, it’s not an acronym at all, but is now on echoic of a tiny dog barking “arp! arp!” to match their new mascot, a Malt-York-Shitz-Poo-Terrier with fleas). This is the 21st century and the concept of retirement needs a major facelift–I call it entering the “Refirement Zone”.

As host of the radio talk show “Boomers Rock” it is my passion, my mission and my zest for all things fun that drives me to build our social collective, keeping us boomers active and socially integrated and on top of our games.

Once you enter the “Refirement Zone” it is all about igniting your life, finding that “thing” that brings joy, keeps you active, and connects you to friends. It’s learning from each other and loving our lives.

Igniting your life is not about looking back; it is about living in the moment and building a successful future that holds an exciting, empowering energized state of mind unparalleled in its force. It is the collective state of mind that drives us into the “Refirement Zone.”

Baby Boomers have an unprecedented opportunity to rebuild the perception of retirement. We have access to medical care, access to knowledge about nutrition, fitness, and psychological well-being, and convenient access to new ideas about our world. If you are 65 years old, you potentially have another 35 years to go; the quality of those years are influenced most by your attitude, approach, and habits! At 65 you are way too young to do nothing, and at 48 you still may have young children to put through elementary school. You could have softball and soccer games in your coaching future, bake sales and football rallies, teaching kids to ride a bike or how to swim. It will be limited primarily by your beliefs.

Your imagination and initiative can open a new world of possibilities.

It is use or lose it, that is my message to all of us!

I like to talk about this tipping point in our society when all of us enter the “Boomers Rock” collective, join the “Refirement Zone” movement, ignite our lives and lead. Take our collective knowledge, passion for life, wisdom and experience and change the world, just like the 60’s and 70’s, there was no sitting around, it was time for expansion of creativity, thought and energy. Creationism at its finest and a collective mindset that changed history; that is where we find ourselves again, our collective is going to be known as the “Boomers Rock Generation”, where giving back to society, helping others and looking forward to our future is the collective mindset, we are not going to allow entitlement programs bother us as they shrivel and disappear. We are going to be self- sufficient, empowered, enlightened and have strength in our collective voice, that my friends is my view of the future, join me for an exciting ride.

To advance this movement, look for my blog entries here on VoiceAmerica. I will write about the best ideas from my radio show that we discuss for improving your quality of life. Improve your life every day, Ignite your life ‘now’! Peace Tom tom@boomersrock.us

Dr. David Healy: Pharmageddon – A Story of a Tragedy of Epic Proportions by leslie carol botha

pharmageddon

Tune in to Holy Hormones Honey! with Leslie Botha for her New Episode “Dr. David Healy: Pharmageddon – A Story of a Tragedy of Epic Proportions” on the Voiceamerica Health and Wellness Channel airs Thursday January 9th 9am Pacific Time.

In 1962 a sleeping pill called thalidomide caused a drug disaster whose emblematic images of limbless and handicapped babies born to distraught mothers linger to this day. Congress swung into action wanting to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. They were also determined to rein in the marketing excesses of the pharmaceutical industry.

Dr. Healy’s latest book Pharmageddon, documents the riveting and terrifying story of how pharmaceutical companies have hijacked healthcare in America and the life-threatening results that have since transpired.

The horrors are best depicted by increasing numbers of pregnant women who steer clear of anything that might harm their unborn child, but who are urged by their doctors to take antidepressants — now the most commonly prescribed drugs in pregnancy — even as evidence accumulates that these drugs cause birth defects, double the rate of miscarriages, and cause mental handicap in children born to mothers who have been taking them.
