Big Sean, enfin dans la cour des grands ?  

Big Sean revient avec un quatrième album solo qui reprend un peu la même recette que les précédents : quelques bangers imparables, des featurings prestigieux, un morceau introspectif avec un refrain chanté et une poignée de jeux de mots plutôt embarrassants. Mais voilà, ses intentions font franchement penser à Drake, en moins authentique. Big Sean a le profil du rappeur pop qui fait des tubes sauf que lui, ce qu’il veut, c’est être un rappeur respecté. Alors à force de repousser sa personnalité, il met beaucoup plus de temps à se trouver.

CGS Joseph Cullen  

The Celtic Graves Society are proud to announce a ceremony to commemorate the final resting place of JOSEPH CULLEN At St Kentigerns RC Cemetery, 951 Balmore Road, Glasgow On Saturday 25th February 2017 at 12 noon (Prior to the Hamilton Academical game) Speakers at the event shall include: Jim Craig, Lisbon Lion and Celtic Graves Society Patron John Fallon, Lisbon Lion and former Celtic Goalkeeper Tony Hamilton, Chief Executive of Celtic FC Foundation Celtic Historian A blessing of the grave will be conducted by Father White of St Mary of the Assumption Church, Calton Born in 1868 to Irish parentage in the Hutchesontown Burgh of Glasgow, Joe Cullen would go on to become the goalkeeper in the first ever Celtic team to lift the Scottish FA Cup in 1892. Joe Cullen was signed from Benburb on 1st January 1892 immediately after the bhoys had been at the wrong end of an 8-0 thrashing by Dumbarton at the original Celtic Park. The erratic performance of keeper Tom Duff was seen as one of the main causes of that friendly defeat and in response the bhoys went out and quickly secured the services of Cullen and he made his debut the very next day at Cathkin Park in a 3-1 win over Third Lanark. The former Scottish Junior international was in goals for Celtic's first Scottish Cup triumph in April 1892 and in August that year he played in the first match to be staged at the present Celtic Park. The great Dan McArthur would eventually oust Joe from his starting spot and after 73 games for Celtic he moved to London to Tottenham Hotspur in May 1897 then subsequently to Lincoln City. Joseph Cullen was Celtic's goalkeeper in a period when to be a goalkeeper was a hazardous occupation. This was due to the barging of goalkeepers, known as bungling, which was a major part of the game. Joseph represented Celtic between 1892 and 1897 and won one Scottish Cup in 1892, two league titles (1892/93 and 1893/94) and two Glasgow Merchants' Charity Cups (1891/92 and 1892/93). Sadly he died prematurely from pneumonia in 1905. All supporters are welcome to attend and leave flowers at the graveside.

20VC: Maximising Engagement and Retention on Mobile & Why There Should Always Be Availability To A Free Product with Sean Brecker, CEO @ Headspace  

Sean Brecker is the CEO @ Headspace where he is the driving force behind all financial and commercial matters including overseeing the company's growth of it's product line which now has over 8m downloads. Sean was also instrumental in attaining the first  institutional round of financing which included investment from the likes of LinkedIn's Jeff Weiner, Jim Breyer, Jessica Alba and Jared Leto, just to name a few. Prior to Headspace, Sean spent 15 years in banking with the likes of JP Morgan, Lehmann Brothers and Citigroup.

 

In Today’s Episode You Will Learn:

1.) How Sean made the move from banking to CEO of meditation service, Headspace?

2.) Meditation can be viewed with some hippy stereotypes, how does Sean look to optimise the onboarding for new users and incorporate elements of education?

3.) How does Sean implement a strategy of habit forming within the users? In the words of Nir Eyal, how do we get them ‘hooked’? How long on average does it take for an action to be completed before it becomes a habit?

4.) How does Sean try and optimise the transition from free to paid user with Headspace? How does Sean try and remove as much friction as possible in the process?

5.) How has Sean seen the growth of the health and wellness space over the last few years? We obviously have the likes of Calm, is this market a winner takes all and how does Sean approach market competition at Headspace?

6.) How was the fundraising process for Sean? How did he come to meet investors like Jeff Weiner, Jim Breyer, Jessica Alba and Jared Leto?

TBP 051 :: Sean McColl Tells Us How He Trains  
About Sean McColl

This is an interview with 28 year-old Sean McColl, a well-known Canadian climber who's accomplished amazing things both outdoors and in competitions. 

I can't describe his amazing accomplishments better than he does on his website, so here's an excerpt... 

"Sean was the Canadian Youth Champion in his age group ever year from 1999-2005 having won every National Championships he attended. During his youth career, Sean claimed 5 world titles; since no other youth competitor has won more titles; this achievement is unsurpassed in youth climbing history to this day."

"Since Sean started competing on the World Cup circuit, he has won 4 events (2 in bouldering, 2 in lead) and been on the podium another 23 times. Sean has won the Overall CombinedRankings and has been 2rd and 3rd in the Lead and Boulder Overall rankings respectively."

"As an outdoor climber, Sean has onsighted 5.14a (8b+) and climbed multiple 5.14d’s (9a). On the bouldering side, Sean is one of a dozen climbers in the world to flash the grade of V13 (8B) and redpoint V15 (8C)."

He seems to only be getting stronger as he gets older. In March of this year (2016), he won the Rab CWIF, a big competition in Sheffield, England, where he beat out Ty Landman, Jimmy Webb, and Jorg Verhoeven (video).

He spends most of his year training for competitions, and only sometimes makes it outside to climb on real rock. 

Whew! Sean is a badass. We've all seen videos of his crazy training (here he is on the campus board), but I wanted to find out more details about how he trains. 

What We Talked About How he trained as a kid What his training cycles look like Training for bouldering vs route climbing Campus board, fingerboard, climbing drills His schedule His diet Sean McColl Links Sean's website: www.seanmccoll.com Sean on Facebook Sean's Instagram: @mccollsean Sean on Dreamcatcher (14d in Squamish) (Video)
THE GOOD NURSE-Charles Graeber  

After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history. Cullen's murderous career in the world's most trusted profession spanned sixteen years and nine hospitals across New Jersey and Pennsylvania. When, in March of 2006, Charles Cullen was marched from his final sentencing in an Allentown, Pennsylvania, courthouse into a waiting police van, it seemed certain that the chilling secrets of his life, career, and capture would disappear with him. Now, in a riveting piece of investigative journalism nearly ten years in the making, journalist Charles Graeber presents the whole story for the first time. Based on hundreds of pages of previously unseen police records, interviews, wire-tap recordings and videotapes, as well as exclusive jailhouse conversations with Cullen himself and the confidential informant who helped bring him down, THE GOOD NURSE weaves an urgent, terrifying tale of murder, friendship, and betrayal. Were it not for the hardboiled, unrelenting work of two former Newark homicide detectives racing to put together the pieces of Cullen's professional past, and a fellow nurse willing to put everything at risk, including her job and the safety of her children, there's no telling how many more lives could have been lost.

In Today’s Episode You Will Learn:

1.) How Sean made his way into VC from the titan that is Yahoo?

Now today I want to do something slightly different and do a myth busting episode, take a couple of sectors and discuss whether they are truths and complexities to the core statement.

2.) Starting with the most common assumption in VC that it is all about team, to what extent does Sean place team ahead of product and is this a slight misconception?

3.) Many are saying mobile is a dying space. Sean previously said, 'it is not dead yet'. Why is there promise for mobile? What will be the catalyst of it's death? How does this affect Sean's investment decision making?

4.) Another much hyped topic is AR/VR, is the excitement surround AR and VR justified? Where does Sean stand on investing in the installation phase of cycles?

5.) Similar to AR/VR is the hype surround bots justified? What will be the sustainable business model for bots?

Cullen Davis - 221 - Generation Why  

Cullen Davis. 1976-1978. Fort Worth, Texas. An oil heir from Fort Worth, Texas is estranged from his second wife. While the divorce process continues, the judge seems to be a real thorn in his side. Increasing his monthly payments to her and having him cover legal fees. Worse yet, she gets to stay in the house and all business decisions must be cleared by Judge Eidson. On August 2nd, 1976, the man's estranged wife, Priscilla, returns home with her boyfriend and they are ambushed by a man wearing a wig and carrying a gun in his hands and wrapped in black plastic. The man will shoot them both. She will somehow make it to a neighbor's house and the police will be called. Found dead at the home was her boyfriend as well as her youngest child, 12 year-old Andrea. Another man was injured with a shot to his spine who had arrived with his girlfriend shortly after. Priscilla, as well as the other two survivors, would name the attacker. They said it was Cullen Davis, who was married to Priscilla. He would be brought to trial for the murders, but these were not the only crimes that he would be charged with. He would also be caught on tape by the FBI paying a man for the murder of Judge Eidson. His divorce judge wasn't actually murdered, but Cullen was tricked into believing he was and handed over $25k. Two trials occurred with very good evidence against him in each. The results of these trials puts Cullen Davis right up there with Robert Durst and OJ Simpson.

Patrice: I think it’s still too pricey. I think I’ll pass.

Sean: Wait! Don’t be so hasty. What you have there is a one-of-a-kind item. You don’t want to pass up something this special.

Patrice: I’ll think about it…

Sean: How about if I throw in a second one for the same price, a two-for-one offer?

Patrice: I thought you said this was one-of-a-kind.

Sean: Did I? I meant to say that there aren’t many out there like it. I just happen to have two. How about it?

Patrice: I think I’ll shop around first.

Sean: This offer is only good right now, so don’t walk away.

Patrice: Like I said, I’ll think about it…

Sean: All right. Name your price. Make me a reasonable offer and I’ll let you have it.

Patrice: How about 30% off?

Sean: That’s highway robbery! I’m just a street vendor trying to make a living here.

Patrice: Take it or leave it.

Sean: All right, you have a deal. You drive a hard bargain. You wouldn’t be looking for a job, would you?

COLUMBINE- Dave Cullen  

On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold left an indelible stamp on the American psyche. Their plan was staggering: to blow up their school, surpass Oklahoma City in horror, and leave "a lasting impression on the world." The bombs failed. But the unprecedented attack unleashed a new era of violence in schools—branding every future shooting "another Columbine." When we think of Columbine, we think of the Trench Coat Mafia; Cassie Bernall, mistaken Columbine martyr; and Patrick Ireland, "the boy in the window"—the whole world watching his gutsy escape. Now, in a gripping work of journalism a full decade in the making, comes the story we never knew. In this revelatory book, Dave Cullen debunks the myths and produces a profile of teen killers that burrows to the core of psychopathology. He reveals two radically different killers: Eric Harris, the callously brutal mastermind, and Dylan Klebold, the quivering depressive who journaled obsessively about love and attended the Columbine prom three days before opening fire. Columbine unfolds seamlessly, in an unforgettable tale of two honor students with a healthy circle of friends, secretly stockpiling a cache of weapons in the basement. They recorded their vitriol on film while manipulating every adult who could have stopped them. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold left warnings all around them—described by Cullen with a sharp investigative eye and psychological acumen. Culling from hundreds of interviews, thousands of police files, testimony from world-class psychologists brought in by the FBI, and the boys' videos and journals, he delivers the first comprehensive account of the tragic Columbine school shooting. A riveting tale of murder, redemption, police cover-up, and a town torn apart—the haunting cautionary tale for our age. COLUMBINE-Dave Cullen

FFF 082: Extreme Endurance Adventuring - Cycling, Swimming & Running The Length Of Britain - with Sean Conway  

Extreme endurance adventurer Sean Conway is the first and only man in history to cycle, swim and run the length of Britain.

In 2015, Sean cycled 3,350 miles from Lulworth Cove to Scarborough on a bamboo bike. At Scarborough, Sean swapped his bike for running shoes and took 1.5 million steps to Brighton, where he did his final leg - a 390,000 stroke swim, across two intensive weeks, all the way back to where he started. The self-supported, 4000+ mile, continuous Ultra Triathlon was filmed by the Discovery Chanel and propelled Sean into the record books.

In this episode of the podcast Sean explains how he became an ‘adventurer’, how he remains focussed when competing, why he thinks high risk goals lead to success, how to make sure failure isn’t an option and why accountability and proving the naysayers wrong fuels his motivation. This is a memorable and entertaining episode and Sean’s message is powerful and provides a recipe for positive attitude and coping with setbacks. .
