    Dylankvinnorna del 1. Hur har kvinnor påverkat Bob Dylan?

    · Tollans musikaliska

    Det första av två program som sätter fokus på de kvinnliga konstnärer som influerats av, älskat och inspirerat Bob Dylan, nobelpristagaren i litteratur 2016. Och några av dem som han älskat tillbaka. 2016 fick Bob Dylan Nobelpriset i litteratur för sina texter med motiveringen: Bob Dylan har skapat nya poetiska uttryck inom den stora amerikanska sångtraditionen. Dylans personliga upplevelser och relationer bildar underlag till många av hans närmare 600 texter. Han har gjort stor musikalisk konst av flera av sina misslyckade kärleksrelationer till kvinnor. Hur påverkade kvinnor Bob Dylans uppväxt? Vilka av hans låtar handlar om vilka kvinnor? Svaret får ni i Dylankvinnorna. Vi mixar Dylan med Sapfo och hör honom sjunga duett med sin hemliga, afroamerikanska hustru Carolyn Dennis. - Jag tycker mycket om hans personliga, nakna och raka beskrivningar i kärlekssångerna och hans ofta knöliga sätt att frasera. Precis som i opera är musiken i symbios med texten hos Bob Dylan, säger dramatikern, författaren och librettisten Kerstin Perski. Lena Åberg Frisk, vd för Uppsala Konsert & Kongress, är däremot kluven till Dylans kärlekslyrik. - Det jag hör är en man som kanske inte riktigt, kommer nära kvinnor. Liksom Dante i Divina Comedia inte skildrar sin älskade Beatrices känslor så handlar Dylans kärlekstexter enbart om Dylans egna känslor. Jag kände mig som ung kvinna inte inbjuden, säger Lena Åberg Frisk. - Jag vet inte hur mycket det betydde musikaliskt, men jag såg musikern och aktivisten Joan Baez vid Bob Dylans sida, och det fanns nånting tilltalande i det. Hon var väldigt vacker med det långa, svarta håret, som en indian på något sätt. Det var lite Yoko och John över dem. Jag tänkte att om man kan ha en sån vacker, klok kvinna vid sin sida så måste man vara en hyfsad människa, säger Ebba Forsberg, sångerska och kompositör, som spelat in flera av Bob Dylans låtar på skiva. I Dylankvinnorna del 1 möter vi även Maria Lindström singer/songwriter, poet och sångerska. Dessutom Henrietta Hulthén, som under många år varit producent och dramaturg på Sveriges Radio. I programmet presenteras musik av de afroamerikanska musikkvinnor som haft stor betydelse för Bob Dylan som artist och människa, bland andra Odetta Holmes, Victoria Spivey och Delores Dixon. Sångerskan, gtiarristen och medborgarrättsaktivisten Odetta framför sin fantastiska tolkning av Bob Dylans Masters of War som finns med på denna etablerade folkmusikers platta Odetta Sings Dylan från 1965. Det var den andra hela skivan någonsin med Dylan-covers. Den första spelades in 1964 av Linda Mason med titeln How Many Seas Must A White Dove Sail. Vi lyssnar även på spännande Dylan-tolkningar av andra kvinnliga artister som Karen Dalton, Abbey Lincoln, Joan Baez, Nina Simone, Miriam Makeba, Madeleine Peyroux, Hart Rouge och punkgruppen Malaria från Berlin.   Låtlista: JUST LIKE A WOMAN Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 000149, 512352 6    MISTER TAMBOURINE MAN Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Abbey Lincoln/ Julien Lourau/ Marc Cary/ Michael Bowie/ Aaron Walker VERVE 00383, 533 559-2   4TH TIME AROUND Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 000149, 512352 6   RESTLESS FAREWELL Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, COL 519892 2   DESOLATION ROW Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, 512351 6   IF NOT FOR YOU Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, 88697 08230 2   BOOTS OF SPANISH LEATHER Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Joan Baez VANGUARD 000381, VCD-79306/7   DIEU A NOS COTES Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan.

    Dylankvinnorna del 2. Hur har Bob Dylan påverkat kvinnor?

    · Tollans musikaliska

    Det andra av två program som sätter fokus på de kvinnliga konstnärer som influerats av, älskat och inspirerat Bob Dylan, nobelpristagaren i litteratur 2016. Och några av dem som han älskat tillbaka. 2016 fick Bob Dylan Nobelpriset i litteratur för sina texter med motiveringen: Bob Dylan har skapat nya poetiska uttryck inom den stora amerikanska sångtraditionen. - Det var Bob Dylan som kunde artikulera och förklara vad det var som gjorde att vi var unika som människor. Man kunde själva bestämma vem man ville vara och vilka uttryck man kunde använda. Man kunde sjunga på vilket sätt man ville och man kunde faktiskt tycka vad man ville också, berättar Henrietta Hulthén, dramaturg och radioproducent. - Det är ju också någonting som gör att alla de här kvinnorna har velat tolka Dylan. Det är som att kvinnorna lyfter fram det sensuella, de hittar i sina tolkningar skimret i Bob Dylans ganska banala musik. Kvinnorna blir hans språkrör och det är fantastiskt, säger Lena Åberg Frisk, vd för Uppsala Konsert & Kongress. - För att finna min egen identitet fantiserade jag om hur Bob Dylan skulle klä sig om han var kvinna, berättar sångerskan och kompositören Ebba Forsberg, som tolkat Bob Dylan på svenska på skivor och scen. - Jag var 12 år och skrev Bob Dylan på mina basketskor. Texterna förstod jag inte alltid. I want you fattade man ju, men kanske inte: drunken politician leaps upon the streets where mother weap the saviours, where fast asleep they wait for you, men när han kommer till wait for you så kvittar det vad han har sagt innan på något sätt, säger poeten och sångerskan Maria Lindström, som framför Bob Dylans låt Buckets of Rain i intervjustudion. - Både Bob Dylans ord och hans musik gav oss en känsla av att allt var möjligt och att framtiden låg där full av löften om förändring och frigörelse, säger Elisabeth Møller Jensen, författare, tidigare vd för Kvinfo i Köpenhamn.   Låtlista: SHE BELONGS TO ME Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, 512353 6   THULASIZWE Trad från Sydafrika, Bob Dylan Trad från Sydafrika Miriam Makeba WRASSE RECORDS 024210, WRASS 062   THULASIZWE Trad från Sydafrika, Bob Dylan Trad från Sydafrika Miriam Makeba WRASSE RECORDS 024210, WRASS 062   BABY BLUE Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Titiyo/ El Rojo Adios/ Andreas Söderström WARNER BROS 000392, SELEA9404013/SEYTP1200108   FÖR ATT JAG ÄLSKAR DEJ Bob Dylan, Mikael Wiehe Ebba Forsberg RHINO RECORDS 05222, 5051442-5584-2-5   MEN BARA OM MIN ÄLSKADE VÄNTAR Bob Dylan, Ulf Dageby Ebba Forsberg RHINO RECORDS 05222, 5051442-5584-2-5   JUST LIKE A WOMAN Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Nina Simone ARIOLA EXPRESS 15283, 295 055   JUST LIKE A WOMAN Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Nina Simone ARIOLA EXPRESS 15283, 295 055   LEOPARD-SKIN PILL-BOX HAT Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 000149, 512352 6   WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Joan Baez VANGUARD 000381, VCD-113/14   BALLAD OF A THIN MAN Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, 512351 6   FOREVER YOUNG Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Rebecca Nyamane/ Soweto Gospel Choir/ David Mulovhedzi SHANACHIE 05719, SHA 66040   SHE BELONGS TO ME Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 00149, 512353 6   I WANT YOU Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 000149, 512352 6   THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Nina Simone ELEKTRA 000192, 8122-79999-0   SAD EYED LADY OF THE LOWLANDS Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan COLUMBIA 000149, 512352 6    ONE TOO MANY MORNINGS Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Joan Baez VANGUARD 000381, VCD-79306/7   A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Patti Smith Live   CLOTHES LINE SAGA Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan The Roches RED HOUSE 020937, RHR CD 154   I WANT YOU Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Ximena Sarinana AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL 034621, 081797401001   Buckets of Rain Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan Maria Lindström Live

    Musiken har ordet 1: Bob Hansson och Paula af Malmborg Ward. Ett samarbete mellan poeten och tonsättaren.

    · Tollans musikaliska

    Paula af Malmborg Ward fascineras av auruan i Bob Hanssons ord Klarspråkssaknad och Människogrönska. - I Bobs vackra ord ingår både ljus och mörker. Hans dikter förmedlar framtidshopp, säger Paula. Hur fungerar samarbetet mellan den levande poeten och den levande tonsättaren? Vad är viktigt när en kompositör sätter musik till en text? Hur respektlös och egensinnig kan man vara mot en given text? I första programmet i serien "Musiken har ordet" hör vi Mozarts g-mollsymfoni med nyskriven text av den amerikanske rockpoeten Neill Furio. Även Chopin är en mycket sångbar tonsättare. Hör Chopins Pianoetyd nr 3 både med Lang Lang och i världsmusiktappning med Maria Pomianowski och vänner. Vi möter även estradpoeten och författaren Bob Hansson och tonsättaren Paula af Malmborg Ward, som självsvåldigt använde Hanssons dikter i sitt verk För att skälva, för Helsingborgs Symfoniorkester och kör. I hans dikt är hela frasen: För att skälva krävs det närhet. -In the beginning is the word! Hela tiden. Ibland känner jag mig mer som ordmänniska än som musikmänniska. Så musiken har definitivt ordet, erkänner Paula af Malmborg Ward. Hon har använt dikter ur Bob Hanssons diktsamling Heja världen och fascineras av auran kring ord som Klarspråkssaknad, Mjuksandssångare och Människogrönska. -Jag har fragmentiserat Bob Hansson. Satt in honom i min musikaliska kontext. Han är väldigt formsäker men formen styr inte utan dikterna har en hög halt av innehåll. Han använder vackra ord, där både ljus och mörker ingår. Bob är en sann filantrop som tror på människan och jag valde hans dikter för att förmedla ett framtidshopp, förklarar Paula af Malmborg Ward. -Det var väldigt rörande när jag fick lyssna på det Paula berättar om vad som händer i henne av ordet Klarspråkssaknad och jag blev upprymd av att höra en intelligent människa som verkligen har grunnat på detta lilla ord. Det är jättenajs!, tycker Bob Hansson Bob Hansson hör inte sin text riktigt när kören sjunger, men upplever det storslagna ändå. - Det är väl därför det är skillnad på en kör och en nyhetsuppläsare. Ha ha ha, skrattar Bob Hansson. Jag tycker det lyriska ordet passar väldigt bra till musik. Det lyriska ordet är inte logiskt som annat språk: Kan du räcka mig mjölken? Ja, det kan jag! Det lyriska språket är bara skenbart ett språk, förklarar Bob Hansson. Bob Hansson har arbetat med många musiker och kompositörer, men där han själv reciterat orden. Mest med Institutet för höghastighetskonst och Kenneth Cosimo. Bob Hansson kommer från arbetarklassen, är son till en kallskänka och går aldrig på konserthus för att lyssna på musik. -Jag inser nu att både jag och mamma har gjort varsin klassresa. Jag genom sina framgångar som diktare och författare och mamma genom att ha abonnemang i Helsingborgs Konserthus, där mina dikter uppfördes till Paula af Malmborgs musik när Helsingborgs Symfoniorkester firade 100-årsjubileum i februari 2012, berättar Bob Hansson. Paula af Malmborg Wards Hittekvinnan handlar om drivkraften att skapa, om att som kvinna hindras av normer och konventioner om ofrihet, ångest, uppbrott - men också om att dansa, dansa, dansa. Hittekvinnan vann första pris i radiotävlingen Prix Italia 2006.

    #176: Know Your Value So You Can Provide Maximum Value to Others with Bob Burg

    · She's Building Her Empire: Female Entrepreneurs | Women in Business | Online Marketing | Management | Productivity | Launching

    If you're having some difficulty understanding the difference between your real value and the price that you're charging, you will really gain a lot from today's show. Stacy's guest, Bob Burg, is a best-selling author and a speaker. He has written a number of books on sales, marketing and influence and today he explains the importance of knowing this, as well as giving you a lot of other, really valuable advice. Listen in today, to what Bob has to tell you about knowing your true value and also about giving value to others.   Bob's total book sales have already reached over a million, with the book The Go Giver having been particularly successful. Stacy says that even if you take away only one golden nugget from Bob on today's show, it's going to really be worth listening to, so tune in now, to hear what Bob has for you.   Some highlights include:   “Sometimes, with entrepreneurs, there's a tendency to under value yourself.” From minute 1:45, Bob talks about price and value and why it's so important to understand the difference between the two. “The basic premise of The Go Giver is simply shifting your focus from getting to giving.” From minute 2:12, Bob talks about shifting your focus from getting to giving. “We should absolutely trying to please others, and as a result, we profit.” At minute 2:47, Bob explains how pleasing others ties into our human nature, as well as into pre-market economics, so we will naturally profit, as a result. “Let's talk about the difference between price and value, because understanding it is what allows us to charge what we should be charging. From minute 3:16, Bob explains about charging what you should be charging and feeling great about it. “Price is finite, but value can be both concrete, in terms of that $5000 saving, but it can also be conceptual, in terms of the peace of mind that she's providing.” At minute 5:27, Bob explains the difference between price and value, as in the example that he used. “ In a free market exchange, the main characteristic of such an exchange is that both parties, the buyer and the seller, come away from the transaction better off.” From minute 6:17, Bob explains the basics of The Law of Value. “When you sell on high value, you're a resource.” At minute 6.59, Bob explains about selling on high value. “Sometimes it's so great to work with a coach.” From minute 7:59, Bob explains about the value of working with a coach. “Someone gave me some advice that changed the whole way I did business.” From minute 9:20, Bob talks about the advice that changed the way he did business. “So many people think that selling is about trying to convince someone to buy something they don't want or need.” From minute 11:48, Bob talks about common misconceptions about selling and sets things straight with the truth about it. “In other words, it's the lack of emotional attachment.” From minute 13:45, Bob explains about emotional posture. “Asking if something will make money, like you said, is a great question, it's just a bad first question.” From minute 19:08, Bob explains why asking if something will make money is a bad question to ask first. “If it will serve, the money will be a result.” At minute 21.03, Bob talks about serving as a priority. “We always have to realise that we operate unconsciously, based on our own unconscious beliefs.” From minute 22:20, Bob talks about our unconscious beliefs and how they can affect our views about others. “If it's a matter of an actual coach that we're hiring...” From minute 23:30, Bob and Stacy explain what you should look for in a coach.   Links: Bob's website: www.thegogiver.com

    If You Die Tomorrow: Do You Need a Will?

    · The Legal Seagull: Law | Litigation | Self-Help | Legal History

    If you died tomorrow without a will, who would inherit your assets? Who would be your children's guardian? What would happen to your remains and who would carry out that unenviable task? How would your debt and final expenses be paid? Do you really need a will, even if you're broke? What if you just want everything to go to your spouse? Our guest in this episode is trusts and estates attorney Adam Becker. Adam answers all these questions—and more—to help you plan for the inevitable. What is a will? NL: Let’s start with the basics. What is a will? AB: A will is a legal document that lets you decide who gets what, and at what time after you’ve passed away. NL: What other terms are there for a will? AB: Sometimes you’ll hear people refer to a living will. That is a different document that has more to do with healthcare decisions. You will also hear people refer to a trust, and there is a lot of confusion sometimes between what is a will, and what is a trust. The truth is that they’re related documents that usually work together. NL: You mentioned living wills. What is it called when you simply have a will that deals with your assets, and what will happen to them when you die? AB: We’d probably call that a testamentary will. That just means when you die there’s this piece of paper that tells people: “Here’s what I want done when I die. Who gets my assets, who is in charge of giving away those assets, who is going to look out for my children,” that’s a guardian named in a will. That’s what you typically would think of in a will that you might see in a movie or in a TV show. Who needs a will? . . . AB: Anybody who has assets needs a will, and certainly anyone who has children needs a will. NL: A lot of people . . . have said to me, “well I’m broke, I don’t have anything to give.” Or they’ll say, “I don’t care, I want my wife to get everything.” Would you agree that if you’re broke—or if you’re married—you don’t need a will? AB: No. I think nowadays there are online services that can do a good job of providing just a will very cheaply. Surprisingly, you can also write out your own will. I’ll speak for the State of California where I practice. If you take a piece of paper, and in your own handwriting write it, date it, and sign it, that is a legal document that would express who gets what when you pass away. Now, there’s drawbacks to doing things by yourself, and writing things out can often have mistakes, but I would say it’s better than nothing in some cases. Bank account beneficiaries NL: Specifically, for people who just want their spouse to inherit everything they have, do you think it’s important for those people to draft wills? AB: Well, there are ways around a will. For example, a bank account. I can name my spouse on my bank account, or as the beneficiary of the bank account. Then, when I die, she just shows up with my death certificate and claims the assets. So, we didn’t need a will in order to transfer that asset. I could put her on the deed to my house. I can get around having a will if I want to give everything to my spouse. But if I have other people that I want to make distributions to, or if I forget one of those assets, I forget to put her on one of those assets, then I will wish that I had a will, because that can transfer to her after I die. NL: What happens if there’s a conflict between the person you listed as your beneficiary, and your bank account, and what’s written in your will? I can’t remember who I listed for my bank accounts. I hope it’s you Olivia, but I probably need to go back and check. OL: You’re in big trouble if it’s not! AB: That’s a more complicated question, but I tell people to look out for this all the time. We draft a will, then the next step is to make sure that all our beneficiary designations line up with what we’ve said in the will. Because if there is a difference [and] that company that has the beneficiary designation on file, they are going to get the death certificate when you die, and they are going to say, “Sorry Neer, it says here that your mother is supposed to get this asset. Either go to court and tell us otherwise, or we’re paying this to your mother.” Preparing a will . . . AB: Like I mentioned earlier, there are online services that would help you to prepare a will. Usually they have a series of questions that you answer, and it fills out a will for you, so that would be one way.  There are good wills that you can get online. [In California and some other states], you can also write a will yourself in your own handwriting, or you can go to an attorney, and have an attorney assist you through the process of preparing a will, or an estate plan. NL: When should you consider getting an attorney, versus . . . going to one of these online services, or getting a “fill-in-the-blank” printed form? AB: If you have children, I would certainly want to run my will by an attorney to make sure it was done correctly; to make sure that they are going to be taken care of by the people that you use; and, that the assets are going to get to them in the way that you want. If you have substantial assets, and by that I think I would say anything over $150,000, I’d want an attorney to review it. But I know a lot of attorneys who will just prepare a will for a very reasonable price, not much different from what you could pay for it online. The importance of wills for blended families NL: Let’s talk a bit about blended families where you have children that are the children of both people in the relationship, and then maybe they have children from prior marriages, or prior relationships . . . I want to bring up a hypothetical to illustrate, and flesh out these issues . . . Bob doesn’t have a will. Bob is married to Heather. They have two children together, and Bob has two children from a prior marriage. Bob would like everything to go to his wife, and he figures that’s what will happen. If Bob gets run over and killed by an ice cream truck tomorrow, what happens to his assets without a will? AB: So, Bob is married, but he’s got two children from a different marriage, and two children with Heather. If he dies tomorrow and he’s living in California, which is where I practice, everything would not go to his wife, Heather. Some people would be surprised to learn that. No will is there, so he can’t say who gets what. California law says that one-third of his assets would go to his wife, and two-thirds would go to his other children. NL: That’s clearly not what he intended for here . . . Assuming he had drafted a will, how could this have prevented the problem? AB: With a will, he could choose who gets what in any amount that he wants. Now, there’s some complications with community property and separate property. But just keeping things very simple, in a will, Bob gets to say “This is who I want to have my assets—and here’s the way in which I want them to get them.” Concerns involving minor children and young adults NL: Does the age of the children make a difference as far as planning whether or not you should get a will, and what the will should provide? AB: It certainly does. If you have minor children, they can’t receive the assets until they’re 18 years old. Someone can pay for them, and provide for their needs, but they can’t get the assets until they’re 18 . . . I have a friend I was speaking with, and he told me this story of a client of his who came to him and said, “My son is the beneficiary of a wrongful death lawsuit. His mother had passed away when he was very young because she had been hit by a driver, a city employee who was drunk.” They settled the lawsuit, and now he was going to inherit from the city a couple million dollars. He said, “My son is 17 and a half, and I don’t want him getting all this money, what can we do?” Well, sadly, there’s nothing you can do. The child is going to get that money, because the contract is between the city and the child. But my friend said, “I met with [the father and child] in the hopes of convincing the child to put some of these assets into a trust, or some other vehicle where the money wouldn’t be spent. Because who wants their 18-year-old to receive a couple million dollars? So he said, “I met with him, and we convinced him the right thing to do was to put this money up in a trust until he’s at least age 25. But his education would be paid for, his health would be paid for, if he needed money for groceries and things like that, that would be available. But he wouldn’t touch the money until he’s at least 25.” At the end of their meeting [the son] said, “Okay dad, that sounds like a good idea, except I want to keep enough money to buy a condo in Vegas and a Ferrari.” That illustrates to our clients why receiving a lot of money at a young age is usually not a good idea for children. NL: In effect, what you’re saying is that sometimes you want to protect your kids from themselves? AB: Correct. I always talk about two types of creditors with clients. One, up to a certain age,  you want to protect people from themselves—they are their own worst creditor. Then, generally after a certain point, we’re worried about other outside creditors, and there’s ways we can help protect against those. But most people agree that until some age, 25, 30, 35, children are going to need guidance in how their money is spent, and you can set that up with the use of estate planning documents. . . . Making sure your wishes are carried out NL: Let’s say that: Bob’s son, Bobby Jr. . . from a prior relationship . . . [and Heather] have an on-and-off-again relationship—a very tense relationship—because Bobby Jr. and Heather just don’t get along. Bob really wants to make sure that Bobby Jr. is taken care of. What can he do as far as planning, crafting a will that will protect Bobby Jr., and make sure that he gets some money as well? AB: This is a common question that I hear from persons in a blended marriage, where they have children from a prior relationship. They say, “Adam, how do I take care of my children from that first relationship. I know my spouse . . . [is] not going to take care of them after I go . . . what do I do to provide for them?” There’s a couple things you can do. First, you could give assets directly to those children when you die. So, in your will, you would say, “Upon my death, Bobby Jr. gets X.” But unless you have a lot of money, oftentimes those assets are going to be needed for your spouse. You could give the assets to your spouse, and just hope that she does the right thing in this scenario and gives them to Bobby Jr., but in my experience, that doesn’t usually happen. Other “good reasons” come up for why Bobby Jr. doesn’t need that money anymore. I’ve found that a simple solution can sometimes be a little bit of life insurance. You buy some life insurance, name Bobby Jr. as the beneficiary upon your death. If you want to be a little more sophisticated you’d put that into an insurance trust. Then, when you die, that money is there for Bobby Jr., and he gets it, he’s paid out. The second spouse can go her way, and provide for your joint children as she sees best. Wills and trusts: What is the difference? . . . AB: A will is just a piece of paper until you die. One of the big differences between a will and a trust is that a will is only effective upon your death. A trust, on the other hand, can be created while you’re alive. It’s created by transferring assets (like a bank account or the title to your home) to the name of the trust. Now it’s funded, it’s called a living trust because it works while you’re alive. A good reason why you might want a will while you’re alive is if you become incapacitated. Then, somebody you’ve named in the trust, called a trustee, can step in and manage your assets for you in the event you’re incapacitated, you’re in a coma. Who can manage the family business, who could sell your home, who could cash out bank accounts, who could provide for you and your family if you’re not able to do that, that’s a trustee. If you just have a will, we have to wait until you die until we can step in and manage those assets. Who makes your medical and financial decisions when you are incapacitated? NL: If instead of dying, Bob ends up in a coma or a vegetative state, what happens? Who makes the decisions for him if he didn’t have a will? AB: . . . If he had a power of attorney that would let somebody act on his behalf in financial matters. If he had a healthcare directive in California they could make decisions for his healthcare. But if he doesn’t have any of those things then somebody is going to have to go to court to get what’s called a conservatorship. It’s expensive, and there’s fees. You’ve got to pay the attorney, pay the court, you’ve got to pay an accountant maybe to prepare an accounting of his assets. A conservatorship would then allow somebody to act on Bob’s behalf, to now make financial decisions, and decisions about his person, about his body, what happens, what kind of healthcare is he going to receive . . . We wish he would have had a power of attorney document, or a healthcare directive, or even a trust to manage his assets. NL: It seems that whatever money he saved by not drafting a will is now going to cost his family a lot to hire an attorney, and go through this conservatorship procedure—which is not cheap—so it does seem that even though a will is an investment, you’re saving money later on, or saving money for your family in the event that something goes wrong. AB: Definitely. You’re also saving frustration, from having to wait on the conservatorship to be approved. You’re saving time, and making it much easier for your family to provide for you if you do become vegetative. You’re making it much easier for your family to provide for you if you are in a coma. NL: How long does it take for you to establish a conservatorship, and what happens to Bob in the meantime? I mean, he’s chilling in the hospital bed. AB: If everyone gets along, the procedure shouldn’t take too long. But in our scenario, where we had Heather and Bobby Jr., who were at odds with one another, if Bobby Jr. is going to contest this conservatorship, to say that he’s in a better position to care for his father, then [Heather], who is now looking around or something like that, it could take quite a while to resolve this conservatorship matter. So again, if Bob had set these things up ahead of time, there wouldn’t be that issue facing the family. Planning for end-of-life care and decision-making NL: Do you want to be kept alive artificially? Do you want your heart to be restarted? Can you talk a bit about what important end-of-life decisions one might want to take into account, and how a will can provide for that? AB: There’s a lot of important end of life decisions. But I think there’s generally three big ones that people are concerned with the most. First, what do you want to have happen with your remains? Are you going to be cremated? Are you going to be buried? Do you have specific instructions? I had a friend tell me one time he wanted to be cremated, but then I was to take his ashes and scatter them in center field of Dodger Stadium, to which I laughed. I definitely don’t think that’s possible, but those are the directions he wanted. [Second] is organ donation. You can say in advance, especially if you’re younger and healthy, “If I die, I want my organs to be donated.” Now, your family doesn’t have to make that decision. Is that something they object to, they would want to do on your behalf? You can just tell them ahead of time. Third, the end-of-life choice. Do you want to be kept alive as long as possible? Do you want to have your life taken off of life support as soon as they can? Or, like you mentioned, do you have other specific measures? “I want to receive water—but not food.” “I want painkillers—but not something else” All of that you can spell out in a healthcare directive so your family doesn’t have to try and figure it out. What do you want done with your remains (e.g., burial, cremation, organ donation, etc.) NL: When it comes to the remains that’s also something to consider. Because I, for example, don’t care. If there’s anything that can help someone—whether it’s my eyeballs, corneas, ears, heart—they are welcome to take it. But I totally understand—and I respect—that for a lot of people, there’s parts of their body that are very personal, and that they wouldn’t want to give up. There are obviously the eyes and facial features. They do facial transplants now, and that could be very weird for your family, or uncomfortable knowing that your face is on another person. Likewise, for people who have experienced horrific accidents, they have genital transplantations, which I think most people would find kind of weird and would want to make a specification either way in their will. So, I think that’s definitely something you want to include as well, as far as what should be donated, and what should they not take from you. AB: In a living will, or a healthcare directive, you can be as specific, or as broad as you want. You can just say simply “I agree to all organ donation,” and now your family gets to make those decisions. Or, you can say, “I agree to organ donation, but I want to keep my eyes, and a few other parts too.” So, ahead of time, you can tell your family what you’d like done. We were saying during a break, I think it was Olivia, one of the important things is not to have any surprises. You don’t want to surprise your family with any strange requests once you’ve passed away. NL: Too late for that, my will is drafted. Actually, Adam, I wanted to ask you . . . You did the will for Olivia and I, and I recall there being a conversation about what parts of the body to donate. Olivia specifically… OL: Your heart belongs to me! NL: Okay. Well, what I was thinking was that I recall [Olivia] saying that [she] didn’t want [her] brain transplanted into another person. Adam, is that a real thing? Can they do brain transplants yet? If you don’t want to get in the middle of this lover’s quarrel, I completely understand. AB: Well, Neer, I don’t know if Olivia is going to want your brain, but whether or not they can do a brain transplant, you’d have to speak with a neurologist. To answer it from the legal perspective, you can put whatever restrictions you want into your healthcare directive. NL: . . . Let’s get back to Bob quickly. Let’s kill Bob again . . . he’s dead and now there’s no will, so there’s no provision as to what should be done with his remains. Bob wants to be cremated—that’s what was done with his parents’ remains—that’s just what he wants to do. Heather, on the other hand, has strong beliefs that when someone dies they should be buried. Bobby Jr. watched a really cool YouTube video about how some people are being frozen so that in the future—if it’s possible to resurrect them—they are kept intact. Now we have a dispute: There’s Bob’s wish, which is not written anywhere in a will. There’s Heather’s belief that people should be buried. Then, there’s Bobby Jr., who wants to deep-freeze dad. What happens under the law in this scenario? AB: Well Neer, I’ve had several people tell me that they want to be frozen—like Walt Disney or Ted Williams—when they die. I’ve always said, “That’s fine, but how are you going to pay for it?? I don’t think freezing is free yet, so someone has to pay for that. So, I’d probably say to Bobby Jr., “Unless there’s enough money in this estate to pay for a frozen father, your idea is no good.” Ultimately the answer, as you know with all legal things, is: If you can’t decide, then you end up in court, and the judge will tell you what to do. So, in this case, they’re just going to have to work it out. The family will have to compromise. This is another good reason of why having a will, or a healthcare directive would avoid this dispute. NL: What happens if they just can’t compromise? Heather and Bobby Jr. each have their own opinions, they try settling, mediating, nothing is happening, they just can’t agree. AB: Then they’re going to end up in court explaining to the judge why their reason for Bob being buried or cremated is the most important, and the judge will make a decision. The right time to get a will NL: In your law practice, when do most people come to see you for a will? AB: I’ve joked that if we were to ever advertise, we should do it in a travel magazine. Most people come to see me right before they’re going to take a long trip. I guess they’re thinking [that] if the plane goes down, they want to be prepared. The second most common time people come to see me is after somebody they know has died, and now it’s on their mind. I guess the third most common would be children who are just concerned about the ailing health of their parents; they want to make sure the affairs are in order before anything happens to mom and dad. But really, if we did it right, everyone should do this early. It is much easier to get things in place earlier in your life than to wait at the end when you have more complicated family arrangements, and a more complicated maze of assets. When you have a child, or are about to have a child is a great time to get your affairs in order. You need to choose a guardian. My wife and I took three years to decide who was going to be the guardian. Now, I don’t care so much that I have children, but before the first one came, we just could not decide who would be the guardian of our children, and made it much more complicated than we needed to. Before you buy a home is a good time to do your estate planning. Once you own a home, the post-death administration is more complicated because you owned real estate than before you bought the house. Before you inherit assets is a good time to set up an estate plan that is going to provide for your own family. I’ve also found recently with children going to college away—out of state or in a foreign country—is a good time to have that child set up a very simple will, or to at least give you power of attorney for their own healthcare, and their own financial decisions. When is it too late to get a will? NL: . . . Obviously, when you’re dead it’s too late to get a will, and if you’re incapacitate completely, or if you’re in a coma. But is there anything in between where it’s just too late, you just have to wait it out? AB: One of the hardest areas for us as estate and trust attorneys is determining when somebody has lost the capacity to sign a will or a trust. It’s a very gray area, it’s heavily litigated. To avoid any of that litigation, you want to have documents signed well in advance—so there’s no questions as to whether or not your parents—or you—had capacity. NL: Can you give an example of when someone has questionable capacity, something that could be challenged in a court of law? AB: Someone who is not able to make decisions for themselves. They live with the assistance of others, they have a documented diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Now, that doesn’t mean they can’t sign a legal document, because they can have moments of clarity. It just means you’re in for a probable lawsuit to try and prove that they did have capacity. –END OF INTERVIEW— Did you enjoy this podcast?

  • 1/25/2015 Bob Cranmer and the Demon of Brownsville Rd.

    · Beyond The Edge Radio

    This episode promises to scare the hell out of you as BTE Radio welcomes Author Bob Cranmer to talk about his families terrifying experiences living with “The Demon of Brownsville Road.” Eric Altman is joined with week by our next contestant in the BTE Radio Co-Host contest Marie Samuels. Eric and Marie welcome Former Allegheny County Commissioner, Politician and Author Bob Cranmer. About Bob Bob Cranmer has been involved with government since 1990 as an elected official or as a government relations specialist. He represents a spectrum of different of clients, which include governmental entities such as: Allegheny County Housing Authority, and the Redevelopment Authority of Allegheny and Fayette Counties, Non-profits such as: Family Links, the Pittsburgh Opera, Ohio Valley General Hospital, and the River City Brass Band. Corporations which have included: Ammann & Whitney Engineering, L. Robert Kimball & Associates, Mistick Construction, and Bombardier Transportation. Bob’s area of expertise and “bi-partisan” relationship management includes local city and county governments, as well as the entire state government in Harrisburg. Bob is a native of Pittsburgh, growing up in the borough of Brentwood where he still resides with his wife Lesa. He graduated from Brentwood High School in 1974 and Duquesne University in 1978, upon which he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the United States Army. Bob went on to serve nine years in the active army, several of which as a Company Commander in the 101st Airborne Division. He also served in the United States Army Reserve with the rank of Major during the Persian Gulf War commanding a Military Intelligence unit. Bob’s employment has included positions with AT&T Bell Laboratories, AT&T Corporate Marketing, and Communications Technologies Group, LTD. Kimball & Associates, and most recently the Harrisburg lobbying firm of Pugliese Associates, managing the Pittsburgh office. In politics, Bob was elected to Brentwood Council in 1991 where he initiated an economic development corporation, which generated over 30 million dollars of new development. It now serves several municipalities and is a model for other communities. In 1995 he was elected Allegheny County Commissioner where he served as chairman of the board. As a Commissioner Bob ushered in sweeping changes to county government, reducing county taxes in excess of 50 million dollars per year, reducing county personnel by 18%, reorganizing county government from forty-one departments to six, creating the position of County Manager, a county 911 system, and forming a city/county economic development organization which generated several billion dollars worth of new projects and related economic development. He led the effort to establish home rule in Allegheny County, which created the position of County Executive and County Council. His other notable accomplishments include the construction of PNC Park, Heinz Field, and the new David L. Lawrence Convention Center. He was also a driving force behind the creation of the Allegheny County Airport Authority to manage the Pittsburgh International Airport. In 1988 Bob bought what he thought would be his dream home in the Pittsburgh suburb where he was raised. In his book the Demon of Brownsville Rd, Bob recounts the harrowing details of the evil presence that tormented his family and the epic spiritual war he fought to save everything he held dear. Strange activity began just a few short weeks after the family moved in. Cranmer said the strange but seemingly harmless activity continued for a number of years before turning dark and violent. At the advice of his mother and to allay his own creepy feelings about the house, Cranmer had a Roman Catholic priest perform a ritual blessing on the place. During the blessing his oldest son stood in the doorway in the form of an "X" and blocked the priest from entering his bedroom, he revealed. The entity's activity slowly became more sinister and interactive. Cranmer remembered being harassed on a daily basis with physical attacks. Eventually the activity was more than the family could take and the Pittsburgh Catholic Diocese became involved which resulted in almost daily mass being held in the home along with multiple exorcisms. Join us this Sunday night as we talk with Bob about his terrifying encounters while living in a dream home that turned into a nightmare as we talk about his book, Demon of Brownsville Road.

    069 Natalie Vartanian & Bob Schwenkler: The Sex & Wellness Connection

    · Wellness Force Radio | Discovering Physical & Emotional Intelligence To Live Life Well

    "The quality of our sex life is a direct reflection of our internal health."-Bob Schwenkler  On this week's podcast, trained life coaches and founders of Sex the Podcast, Natalie Vartanian and Bob Schwenkler, join me to talk about relationships, sex, and wellness. Since joining forces as a power couple in 2015, Natalie and Bob have been the secret sexual weapon for successful men from all walks of life. They’ve helped many people from former Army Sniper Instructors, Online Marketing Experts, to Corporate Airline Pilots from across 3 continents unlock the next level of joy and confidence in their sex lives and relationships. Meeting someone new and beginning a romantic relationship with them can create one of the most exhilarating feelings that you will experience during your lifetime. However, your emotional wellness plays a huge part in not only your health and fitness, but also your sex life. Past relationships and experiences can really effect new relationships, who you are, and who you want to become. Each time you begin a new relationship with someone, it's important to address anything that's going on with yourself. If you're emotionally unsteady because you have bottled up feelings of anger, sadness, and trauma on the inside, not only will it show up in your daily fitness and wellness health, but in your personal relationships and sex life as well. To have a healthy sex life, you need to be healthy on the inside by addressing any hidden issues or baggage that you may be carrying with you.    How to Recognize and Share Your Personal Feelings In a relationship, it's important to recognize how you feel and not to ignore those feelings. Ask yourself, what do you want in a relationship? What do you want for your sex life? What do you want for your career and the rest of your life? For you to be able to recognize your feelings and open up to your partner about your wants and desires, you should first become intimate with yourself. You can do this by giving yourself self-care and self-love.  Begin by slowing down and taking a moment to understand what is going on with you. Try to be in the present and recognize what emotions you're feeling right now. Come back to yourself and be honest with what you want and need. Learn To Understand Your Partner's Love Language When you understand yourself better, you can learn to listen to your partner better as well. However, miscommunication or no communication can still happen throughout a relationship. Fortunately, coaches like Natalie and Bob can help you can fix that by using strategies and tools to help open up and improve communication with your partner.  These communication tools can help you both to understand each other's love language, what your desires are, and how you can recreate something in your relationship.  To understand your partner's love language, it may mean unpacking any baggage and talking about issues that you haven't even discussed about in the past. How to Get Out Of A Shame Spiral Something that can keep us back from having a fulfilling relationship and sex life is the shame that we feel for ourselves. This shame spiral can happen to us when we don't feel good in our own bodies or the person that we are. If you're feeling shameful, it could be happening because you're in a constant pattern of avoidance. This pattern occurs when we're stuck in an unhealthy routine that doesn't allow us to find out what's really going on with ourselves. This pattern of avoidance could include having lots of unfulfilling sex, drinking, working a lot, spending time on social media, or even just rational thinking.  Rational thinking mode is a thought addiction and surprisingly enough, over-thinking will keep you from having connected, fulfilling relationships. To have a better sex life, you should look deep inside yourself and have an internal inquiry. Ask yourself what's holding you back from having great sex and even other experiences such as an amazing life or career?  To help you truly escape this shame spiral and begin having fulfilling relationships and great sex, reach out to sources of support and help if you must do so. Don't Be Afraid To Reach Out For Help If you're struggling with your emotions and your shame spiral is keeping you from connecting with your partner, don't be afraid to reach out for help.  Because we're only human, we can't take this journey all by ourselves. Talk to close friends about what you're going through and maybe they've been through the same obstacles. Ask someone to be your accountability partner to help hold you responsible for the goals that you want to accomplish. Spend time with like-minded people in person or virtually online with different communities. Seek professional help by reaching out to therapy groups such as the ManKind Project or life coaches like Natalie and Bob. They can give you the support, strategy, and the tools that you need to help you live a fulfilling sex life with your partner.   "Do the thing and you'll have the power."-Ralph Waldo Emerson   More About Natalie Vartanian For the past 6 years Natalie Vartanian has worked with women from across 5 continents to help them get the sex lives and relationships they want.

Great show. I listen to many podcasts covering a range of topics from politics, current affairs, sports and video games.I very much listen on the commute to work on crowded London trains and for this reason your show Nintendo Switch Craft stands out above the rest. Informative, unbiased, clear and perfect for someone who has a busy work life.On the digital v physical discussion, I have always bought physical on the basis I know I can trade-in games if I need to. I do also keep games I like, and have a proud collection. Predominantly a PS4 player, but since getting a Nintendo Switch I have been purchasing digital for the first time. I want to play without the hassle of juggling physical cartridges, allowing the Switch to truly feel portable. For the PS4, physical discs are going to continue being my form of choice. Digital will be my preferred delivery for the Switch.Lastly, keep up the great work. I know you a small set-up, but in terms of quality and passion you are on par and even above some of the more established big-budget podcasts out there. The fact you try support your wife's business through this adds that extra charm to the work you put into this project/hobby/passion of yours. I can feel the family vibe each time I listen to Nintendo Switch Craft.Appreciate if you have read up to this point, a rather long email I know.
