Marc Maron & Randy Bryce  

Howie Klein, Professor Corey Brettschneider and Dr. Jay Sutay. Marc Maron stars in the new critically acclaimed Netflix series "Glow." Randy "Iron Stache" Bryce is running for Wisconsin's first congressional district intent on defeating Speaker Paul Ryan. Howie Klein on Randy Bryce and the fight for Medicare For All. Professor Corey Brettschneider explains how Donald Trump Junior violated campaign finance law by taking that meeting last year with those Russians. Marc is the author of two books: The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah, based on his solo show and is available for purchase on Amazon.com, and a collection of essays titled Attempting Normal, which was released by Spiegel and Grau in 2013. His first four albums, Not Sold Out, Tickets Still Available, Final Engagement, and This Has To Be Funny are comedy classics. Marc released his stand-up special Thinky Pain on Netflixin 2013 and as an album in 2014.  His most recent special, More Later, premiered on Epix in December 2015 and is also available on Hulu and Amazon Prime. Randy Bryce is a U.S. Army veteran, cancer survivor, and union ironworker. He joined the race for Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District because his values are our neighbors’ values, and Washington has gotten way off track. Randy was raised in southeastern Wisconsin, and went to public schools. After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and was posted to Honduras, where he earned the Army Achievement Medal. Randy’s father was a police officer, and his mother worked in a doctor’s office. His brother is also a police officer, and his sister is a public school teacher. After returning stateside, Randy was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He didn’t believe he could ever have children, and now calls his only son Ben, his “miracle child.” Ben is a public school student like his dad was. Randy found his way to an apprenticeship as an iron worker, and has now been helping to build America for more than 20 years. He’s been active in Ironworkers Local 8, serving as political coordinator for the union, and until recently as a member of the Milwaukee Area Labor Council board of directors. “My mother has multiple sclerosis, my father is in assisted living, and I survived cancer in my 20s to have a miracle child in my 40s,” said Bryce. “What Paul Ryan and the Republicans are doing to take health care away from millions of us, to make it cost more and cover less, and to allow the protections we’ve gained to be stripped away – it’s just unacceptable.” Randy currently serves as President of the Wisconsin Veterans Chamber of Commerce board of directors, and as Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Veterans Caucus. He resides in Caledonia. Howie Klein is an American writer, concert promoter, disc jockey, music producer, record label founder, record label executive, progressive political activist, and adjunct professor of music. He is perhaps best known for his role as President of Reprise Records from 1989 to 2001. He appears occasionally as himself in music-related film documentaries and has received accolades for his stance against censorship and for his advocacy of free speech protection. Corey Brettschneider is professor of political science at Brown University, where he teaches courses in constitutional law and political theory. He is currently also a visiting professor at the University of Chicago Law School. Brettschneider was a visiting professor at Fordham Law School, a Rockefeller faculty fellow at the Princeton University Center for Human Values, a visiting associate professor at Harvard Law School, and a faculty fellow at Harvard's Safra Center for Ethics. Brettschneider received a PhD in politics from Princeton University and a JD from Stanford University. He is the author of When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? How Democracies Can Protect Expression and Promote Equality (Princeton University Press, 2012) and Democratic Rights: The Substance of Self-Government (Princeton University Press, 2007). These books have been the subject of several journal symposia, including one most recently published in the Brooklyn Law Review. Brettschneider is also the author of a casebook, Constitutional Law and American Democracy: Cases and Readings (Aspen Publishers/Wolters Kluwer Law and Business, 2011). His articles include "Sovereign and State: A Democratic Theory of Sovereign Immunity," forthcoming in Texas Law Review; "Value Democracy as the Basis for Viewpoint Neutrality," in Northwestern Law Review (2013); "A Transformative Theory of Religious Freedom," in Political Theory (2010); "When the State Speaks, What Should it Say? Democratic Persuasion and the Freedom of Expression," in Perspectives on Politics (2010); and "The Politics of the Personal: A Liberal Approach," in the American Political Science Review (2007). Dr. Jay Sutay, the self-proclaimed “Hardest Working Pediatrician in Comedy”, is a frustrated pediatrician from South Windsor, CT, who brings his tales from the exam rooms, his experience working with kids and their parents, as well as his own tribulations as the father of two daughters to his stand up comedy. His cutting and sometimes incisive commentary about society, parenting and raising kids, has left audiences laughing.   Dr. Jay Sutay began doing stand up comedy in 1983 while attending Fairfield University. He was a regular at Open Mic Night at the Treehouse Comedy Club when it was still located in the basement of the New England Motor Lodge in Westport. While in college, Jay had narrowed his career choices to two. Medicine or Stand up Comedy. A chance encounter with comedian, Jay Leno, on October 31, 1983 sealed Jay’s career path. Leno’s advice was to go to medical school and become a doctor. Insisting that after medical training, at the very least, Jay would have a job. Sage advice. Comedy offers no guarantees.   After graduating from F.U. in 1985, Jay took a year off to mull over his options. Realizing that pizza making by day, and stand up comedy by night was probably not the best use of his college education, medical school seemed the likely option. Jay completed his medical school training at The University of Connecticut School of Medicine, and delivered the valedictory address at his graduation in 1990 (clearly selected as the speaker not because he was the top student in the class, but because he was the funniest). After completing his residency in Pediatrics at Hartford Hospital, he has been in private pediatrics practice in South Windsor, CT since 1993. He has been named a Connecticut Top Doc by Connecticut Magazine each year since 2006. Dr. Sutay is Board certified in Pediatrics, but has no documentation that he is a comic, or for that matter, funny.   After 20 years away from comedy, Dr. Sutay resurrected his long dormant stand up act in December 2006 by taking the stage at Hartford’s Brew Ha Ha Comedy Club. According to those in attendance, he did not suck. Since that night, Dr. Jay has performed at clubs throughout the northeast, and clubs and casinos as far away as Nevada, California, and the Bahamas. Dr. Jay was a finalist in the Pro Division of both the 2012 Funniest Comic in New England Contest, and the 2014 Funniest Comic on the East Coast Contest held at Mohegan Sun Casino. He was named one of Hartford’s Best Local Comics in the Hartford Courant’s CT Now 2015 Reader’s Poll.  Dr. Jay was a regular contributor to The Miserable Men Show on Sirius/XM Radio, and can be heard monthly on “The Dad Podcast”. Dr. Sutay has consistently been named a “Top Doc” in Pediatrics by Connecticut Magazine. In addition, he has performed his stand up comedy for medical and pharmaceutical groups, and at many charity benefits including: Golf Fore the Kids, Autism Speaks, Cherish the Children Foundation, Crayons for Cancer, Griffin’s Friends, Stand Up 2 Cancer, The Leukemia Lymphoma Society, The Alzheimer’s Association, The Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, and Stand Up to CF.

Capitulo 7. Soporte o dock barato para smartphone y portátil.  

Después de gastar un pastizal en un smartphone de los buenos, o en un android, toca la moral un poco tener que gastarse más dinero aún en un dock, o un soporte para un portátil que nos ha dejado pelada la cuenta del banco.

En este capítulo os contamos varias manualidades que podéis hacer con vuestros hijos, sobrinos, o solos… para que os salga realmente barato, con materiales cotidianos, haceros un soporte de dispositivo que en relación calidad precio, no tienen demasiado que envidiar a los caros.

Stand Out: How to Build a Following That Matters  

Are you wondering how to stand out in the noisy online world? Want to build your status as a thought leader? To discover new ways how to stand out, I interview Dorie Clark. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode I interview Dorie Clark, author of Reinventing You and an adjunct professor at Duke University. She's also a consultant and speaker. Her clients include Google and Microsoft. Her latest book is called Stand Out: How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea and Build a Following Around It. In this episode Dorie will explore how to stand out in the noisy online world. You'll discover why creating breakthrough ideas and becoming an expert are essential today. Share your feedback, read the show notes and get the links mentioned in this episode below. Listen Now You can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. How to subscribe/review on iPhone. Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Stand Out Dorie's backstory Dorie started her marketing and strategy consulting business nine years ago, following a pretty eclectic career. After studying theology in graduate school, Dorie was a political reporter, a spokesperson for first a gubernatorial and then a presidential campaign, and ran a non-profit. Through her journey, Dorie noticed increasing numbers of people reinventing themselves, so she wrote Reinventing You to capture best practices for the process. She then realized the next challenge (after you find the place to make your mark) is to become a recognized expert. She wanted to learn from the best, so Dorie interviewed 50 top thought leaders, including Seth Godin, Daniel Pink and David Allen, to try to figure out how they came up with their breakthrough ideas and built their following. Dorie wanted to demolish the myth that famous people are perceived as having always been famous. There are certain replicable actions that anyone can do with the right strategy. One common thread is that all of the people she profiled are known for their ideas. The idea comes first, and then these people roll up their sleeves and work in the trenches in their profession to spread their ideas. Mindset is a key factor in whether someone will be successful. Dorie refers to Carol Dweck from Stanford University, who talks about a growth mindset versus a fixed mindset. If you have a growth mindset and you're not getting the results you want, you believe if you change what you're doing, you'll get those results. If you have a fixed mindset and you're not getting the results you want, you think it must be because you're not smart or talented enough, and there's nothing you can do to change it. Sharing ideas puts you in a position of vulnerability, because it's possible people won't like them. However, it's fundamentally an act of generosity if you have ideas you believe can help the world. People need to step up and be willing to share their ideas, because those who are doing it now are no different than anyone else. They are just willing to do something differently. Listen to the show to learn more about what stops most people from becoming successful. Why create a breakthrough idea? A breakthrough idea is something new and valuable that you (and often only you) can contribute, Dorie explains. This is more important than ever, because the world we live in today is so competitive and globalized. There is always going to be someone willing to do the work for less money than you. Ten years ago, if you needed a website designed, you went to the Chamber of Commerce mixer to see who does websites, and you picked a designer. Now, you go on Elance or Odesk and find someone who will do it for half the price around the world. As a result,

Todd Barry  

The day we recorded this, it was brutally cold rain with heavy winds outside.

 

Todd Barry is a perennial force of continuous head busting comedy for many decades now. The fact that Todd grew up in Florida and that he is one of the most respected comedians to have ever have started out there makes him feel like he is a part of my extended family. As long as I have been around, Todd has been around. From the earliest Comedy Central and MTV comedy shows to all of the best comedy festivals world wide. 

 

He has appeared multiple times on Letterman and Conan, as well as delivering highly acclaimed comedy specials. He is one of the most respected comedians in the business and Louis CK is one of his most ardent supporters, having highlighted Todd as himself as a reoccurring character on the smash hit FX show 'Louie'.  

 

Louis Ck even produced Todd's most recent live audio recording called 'Crowd Work'. Todd's unique brand of comedy as well as his signature delivery has made him a staple on several animated series voicing characters on Dr. Katz and Squidbillies. Todd started doing stand up comedy in South Florida and moved to New York City where he still lives today. This conversation was recorded at the Salt Hill Hotel in Galway, Ireland. Todd and I were both doing the Galway Comedy Festival together and this was the tail end of a European and Scandinavian tour he was on.

 

It is a special honor to know the quiet thunder of his personality and to have seen him kick so much comedy ass through all of these years and it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Todd Barry!

Music practice.  

Beginners. Are you musical? Which instrument do you play? There are so many to choose from: piano, flute, vioin, guitar, trumpet, drums and percussion instruments. I could go on and on. It can be fun to play an instrument, especially if you practice enough to become good at it. I started to play the violin last year. There are many pieces of music that I love which have main violin parts. Two of my favorites are Vivaldi's Four Seasons and Howard Shore's Lord of the Rings. I can lose myself in the music. I take a class once every two weeks. My teacher told me that it is important to practice every day. I try to, and when I do, I can see that I am improving. However, if I go for a week without practicing, my playing certainly does not improve. And if you play the violin badly, it sounds terrible. I suppose it is like all hobbies; you get better and better with practice. The hard work does pay off. My children are taking piano and guitar lessons, and we hope that next year, at Christmas time, we can all play carrols together. Perhaps we could play for my podcast listeners too. Grammar notes.  Related vocabulary: woodwind instruments, stringed instruments, percussion instruments, concert, piece of music, composer, to practice (reg. verb), hobby. Questions: Are you musical? Is she sporty? Are they flexible? Are we ready? Is it necessary? Future: We hope that next year we can (will be able to) play together. They think that, in three years, they can (will be able to) buy a house.  *Will be able to is grammatically accurate, but 'can' is commonly used. To go for (time) without: If I go for a week without practicing, my playing sounds terrible. We went for a month without milk. She had gone for several months without paying her bills. Advanced. When it comes to being musical, my family is just starting out. My children are signed up to take their first piano and guitar lessons, and I have been playing the violin for only a year. But, I suppose, it is never to late to start, especially if you are willing to put the time and the practice in. The violin is quite a complex instrument. Not only do you have to position your fingers correctly to create the notes, but the bow has to move just right to create the right tone. If you are uptight or badly positioned, it can sound horrendous. So, needless to say, practicing is one of our family's routines. Any time, after the kids come home from school, you can hear sounds of guitar, violin, or mini organ echoing through the house. And, believe me, it often doesn't sound good. Even the dog will move away to another room to get away from the racket. But, it is all good. With practice comes progress; progress leads to skill, and skill should sound good at some point or other. I'm trying to encourage my busy husband to take up an instrument also. He tried the violin when he was in Kindergarten, but after several months, his parents couldn't stand the squeaks and grinds any more, so he was obliged to stop. The poor guy, he could have become a great violinist. Mind you, being a parent myself, I know the value of some ear plugs. At this stage, I think I will be using them quite a lot. Grammar notes. Related vocabulary: notes, bow, echo, squeaks, grinds, progress, skill, to stand (to not stand) something, to be willing, ear plugs. Exs: I can't stand pork. She couldn't stand the noise. My parents can't stand their neighbors (neighbours). 'Racket' = colloquial British for bad noise.
