The Leadership We Need for the Long Haul – Big Cat Country

Leadership shows up in adversity more than anywhere else. These young players that we have are going to be able to see what Gus and his staff are really made of. Everyone has a plan until you get beat down at home and the stand are half-empty at half-time. After that, what? Fight, flight, freeze. Those are the options.

I learned a lot about the man Gus Bradley by watching his short post game speech that was aired after the Oakland loss. Marine Corps principles were in place. We can all learn something from these principles and traits.

The leader is ultimately responsible for the actions of the team.

Despite the ultimate responsibility of the leader, everyone is held accountable. Every step. Every misstep does not involve just one or two people. Every mistake is a system failure. Where were the breakdowns? Find those. Eradicate, educate and eliminate. Eliminate meaning that we move past the memory of mistakes. Own it, eat it, and shit it out.

When I showed up to boot camp, I was a 155lb 20 year old kid. I could do 10 pull-ups, run 3 miles in 25 minutes, and do 90 crunches in 2 minutes. Decent. Not great. I met the minimum standards. I was not about to win any awards on fitness levels for Marines. I could have graduated that day and been well within the standards. My leaders demanded more. After a while, I demanded more. I wanted to improve; as a result, I worked harder everyday because those leaders placed over me demanded it. They did not demand it of just me but they also demanded full effort from every single would-be Marine around me.

The environment was contagious.

Marines buy in to being the best. We buy in to locating, closing with, and destroying the enemy by fire and close combat. Why? Because that’s who we are. At some point, and there is a defining point, our inner constitution changes.

Gus Bradley can do that with this roster. From my experience, guys that join the Marine Corps with something to prove take longer to develop into leaders, key role players, and go-to guys but when they do, oh man. That’s what we are hoping happens to the slew of undrafted free agents. Are they 15 year Hall of Fame caliber guys? No. But they can fill a role and lead. There are far more Marines that get out after four years but their impact on the Marine Corps is long lasting. We didn’t pick up any hall of famers on the waiver wire but we did sign some pretty decent guys that we can use as building blocks. New guys will be here soon but there is a job that needs to be done now.

We have a roster full of guys that are talented, hard working, and thirsty for getting better. It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest Poz fan in the world. Poz, as a captain, displays amazing leadership in a picture posted on twitter early this week. As soon as the team got to the hotel, Poz was out in the open studying film.

Leaders do that. Leaders let you see that they are preparing. It’s contagious.

When I was the Company Gunnery Sergeant I made it a point to run, workout, and clean my office during lunch time. I didn’t do all that during lunch because I wasn’t hungry but because was determined to let Marines actually see the work that I put in. I did not just come up with philosophy one day. I did that because the Company First Sergeant was doing the same thing. When I got the job, it was required. Lead from the front. If anything needs to be done, we do it first. We do it where people can see. They will want to join. They did.

Gus Bradley would have been one hell of Marine. I was speaking with Alfie a while ago and we were talking about R. L. Ermey. For people that have not had the privilege of being in the Marine Corps, Ermey is what they usually think of. That’s fine. There is so much more.

Is there name calling, hitting, screaming, running, push-ups? Sure. What the public doesn’t see in the movies is the part of leadership that involves tucking a young Marine under your arm and listening to his stories about how his wife left him. The public doesn’t see the combat hardened leader teaching about finances. The public doesn’t see the monthly counseling sessions. The public doesn’t see the problems. The public sees the guys in dress blues. You see the finished product. You don’t see the 6 uniform inspections that the Marine went through to make sure his uniform was perfect before the Marine Corps Ball.

People have actually wanted Gus to throw his players under the bus. Leaders don’t do that. Why would you trash your own people in a public fashion. You use mistakes as teaching points while teaching with accountability. No one should think mistakes go uncorrected but leaders, a huge majority of the time, are not going to make those corrections in the public square.

The teams inspections come on Sundays. The fans, in some cases, expect Gus Bradley to trot a team ready to set the world on fire. These guys haven’t been together as long as basic training. It’s a new platoon of guys. Some of them showed up and were the football equivalent of “155lb kid that can do a couple pull-ups.” Coach Bradley will train them right.

Give them time. Enjoy the show of leadership. If you are a leader in your job always remember that there was a time that you sucked. If you are in a subordinate role, chin up, your boss sucked before and might still now. Get better.

A squad of 53 guys with the talent that we have simply wont make the playoffs. Some games we might not even look competitive. We might get blown the hell out every single game. What we need to focus on is “blooming where we are planted.” Discipline is the key. There is no doubt in my mind that we have the right leaders to lead us where we want to go. Reinforcements will be coming. 2013 might be a battle we “lose.” Don’t be short-sighted. Sometimes you give up the queen to take the king. Leaders know that.

Pres. Obama has made Putin Leader of the Free World | Fr. Z's Blog

Sometimes it seems that I am living in a Salvador Dali landscape: clocks melting of tables and all that.

Even as I hear about unions turning on the First Gay President over Obamacare, I find an op-ed in today’s Hell’s Bible (aka NY Times) by former KGB colonel and present Leader of the Free World, Vladimir Putin.

I read the op-ed against the backdrop of Syrian dictator Assad, in a politically deft move, saying right on schedule that it was not the Pres. Obama’s resolve for a military solution that moved Charlie Brown’s football down the field, but rather Putin’s and Russia’s involvement. Well-coordinated. Sly.

Here are a couple points from Putin’s op-ed.

A Plea for Caution From Russia
What Putin Has to Say to Americans About Syria


The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, … [!]


My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. [He’s is talking to Obama’s liberal dem base!  But a KGB officer would know how to do that.] Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

You don’t get to be on the top of the pile in Russia by being either stupid or a nice guy. This was pretty slick.

Putin invokes the Pope.

Putin affirms Obama’s determination to undermine American exceptionalism.

Putin invokes our creator, who “created us equal”, which point Obama has been systematically excluding from his references to the Declaration of Independence.

Pres. Obama has made Putin Leader of the Free World.

A Partner in Pain: How to Help! | Partners in Wellness

shutterstock_135280343#17, Yep that’s the one: “giving you trouble.” #17??  Left-side, bottom, wisdom.

On the 17th of July, my tooth #17 was bothering me! (Curious, eh? 717) Ended up at a dentist that afternoon. What brought me there? Pain.

Interestingly, to me anyway, this same tooth served as the “physical”/partial/smidgen/twinge of pain inspiration for post: -Pain-the-common-shared-human-experience-connecting-us-to-each-other- the major “emotional” pain inspiration for that post: (will keep to myself).

Now, I need oral surgery to remove this tooth, UGH!…cause I put off taking care of it. Actually, other things had to be taken care of in my life; other responsibilities that I deemed more of a priority than tooth #17.

Doesn’t every parent or partner do this?! Put the needs of Family, Partner, Child first. Of course, at the time, didn’t think I would eventually lose this tooth. Guess that’s not too bad, at 44, to lose 1 tooth…it’s not a limb or an eye or a vital organ; THANKFULLY! :)  

Too bad it’s a wisdom tooth–need ALL the Wisdom I can get! -lol:) Of course You agree, You read my ramblings -lol


At the library, met a man missing limbs. Struck up a conversation–brief…tried to be encouraging. Seeing him and meeting him put my pain in proper perspective. I wonder what choices (may of or may not of) contributed to his loss?! Isn’t that what life and choices do: bring gain or bring loss, bring pain or bring peace. Long-sighted choices can bring peace and less pain.

Sometimes, it’s impossible to see the full scope of small, immediate choices (the trickle effect). It’s been trickling…

Fast forward to this present first week of September and guess what? Yep, #17 at it again! Lessons in pain–excruciating pain. No eat, No sleep, No writing, No talking! Actually, I experimented with ways of managing my pain.

How do You manage Your pain? In what ways do You help Your Partner who may be in pain?

  • acknowledging your partner’s pain
  • comforting words
  • comforting hugs
  • making appointments for treatment
  • bringing your partner to appointments
  • picking up the slack with household chores
  • cooking meals and child care
  • cheerfully giving and helping

Gotta give a shout out of THANKS to Hubby Chato Stewart Mental Health Humor & Kids for helping me with my pain or trying to help me find some relief!:)

What worked for my pain?? Staying on my feet, walking, dancing, swishing salt water in my mouth constantly and working on goofy/distracting moves (i.e. balancing a soup ladle filled with salt water with my left hand while dancing.) Music, prayer brought relief. I was coping with other physical pain besides this tooth so, as a last resort, stopped playing the martyr and took some pain reliever. Took the edge off, didn’t take the pain.

Nobody’s a stranger to pain. You know Your pain. I know mine.

My first discovery/learning of the meaning of physical “pain” came when delivering (vaginally/naturally without drugs) our first baby/our boy: 10lbs., 22 inches, head circumference 17--OUCHYWAWA!!;) Doctor told us 15 was the breaking point. (Also learned how to scream real loud that day!-lol)

My heart/tears weep for ALLBEAUTIFULFRAGILELIFE coping with chronic pain every day! I pray You get some relief! Pain can rob us of joy. It can rob us of precious time and positive interactions with loved ones. This intense jaw/ear/tooth pain consumed me for a couple days. It was tough concentrating on anything else, but finding relief. (Also learned joan rhymes with moan -lol.)


I hope You are not in any pain as You read this. If You are: I’m SORRY!

I HOPE/PRAY YOU get needed Relief and Fast! Please, seek out positive ways of relief and not negative ways that will eventually cause more pain.

Being wide awake to pain around the clock taught me deeper lessons of compassion. Now that I’m feeling a little better, I wish to display compassion more fully to everyone in my life, every day! Helping to alleviate pain in some small way can help the sufferer endure a long way. The strong/well must support/help the weak/sick endure. We are all weak and sick in some manner. We all need support/help even so-called healthy partners.

I couldn’t stop meditating about all the suffering/pain mankind is enduring globally due to poor and/or selfish choices and power struggles (i.e. war).

“When anyone wicked bears rule, the people sigh.” Proverbs 29:2

“It is plain to anyone with eyes to see that at the present time all created life groans in a sort of universal travail.” Romans 8:22

Each of us as Partner, Parent, Friend, Caregiver, Breathing-Fragile-Life must help one another with our pain in order to survive! We must deeply consider the needs of our fellow fragile life and be willing to cheerfully fill those needs.

We need to give and not just take. When we know pain, we know what brings relief. Those of us who choose compassion, please keep choosing to bring relief to the suffering! Too bad pain, war, sickness is big business.

My previous dentist prescribed me an antibiotic three days ago…and today Friday, Hubby brought me to another place (emergency dental/surgery facility) where we thought, told over the phone, they would be able/willing to help me (i.e. yank the tooth)! No can do, well not today because #17 is tricky, partially broken with roots touching my jaw nerve…oh, and to pull tooth with anesthesia $850+ up front. I brought my own x-ray. Couldn’t yank my tooth, but had no problem yanking my $81.00–fee for not helping me. It’s expensive opening your mouth to strangers for 5 minutes, huh?

It’s sad/unfair when the poor in pain cannot afford relief. :(

Personally, I have to shop around for an affordable/reasonable estimate/consultation. It’s sorta like finding a fair, reasonably priced car mechanic. This afternoon, reliable Friends recommended a different oral surgeon, no openings for consultation till September 16th. May be ? by then, I’ll learn more positive ways of pain management and won’t be complaining..oops, I mean explaining to You my empathic readers! THANKS MUCH for listening!

May be? my (goofy) pain dance moves/distraction techniques will improve by then -lol Practice makes better. :)

#17 is costing me. What’s Your pain costing You?! More than a few tears, huh?

David Bronson -'The Long Lost' out October 14th | The Folk Roots List

Early this year David Bronson released his debut album ‘Story’, the first instalment of a deeply cathartic 22 track opus, yet chronologically this was second half of his narrative. The prequel, ‘The Long Lost’ is now set for UK release in October and promises to draw closure to The Long Lost Story project, completing what is in effect a sonic summation of an emotional development process travelled through by each and every one of us who has loved and lost, and survived.


With a number of years of writing, producing, and recording in NYC as an indie musician with a tight budget, Bronson let nothing get in the way of the album’s large and expressive scope. Beginning with a young man’s loss of hope and identity following the end of first love, a project came to life to continue through the prolonged, arduous, and life-changing journey to re-find them. Originally meant as one record, it became obvious to Bronson that the album represented growth itself: ‘It became a metaphor and conduit for everything I was feeling in my inner life, and I put everything into it,’ he explains. “I indulged myself to get everything the way I wanted; the art of it became the only thing that mattered.”

“The Long Lost is exactly that: a piece of my history, somewhat ancient history actually, but certainly a piece that informed much of my life that followed, in various important ways,” explains Bronson. “This album documents the most difficult period I can remember. There was a lot of darkness, which I think is reflected in the music; both in the lyrics as well as in the makeup of the songs themselves. The title refers, on the one hand, to exactly what was going on; it really is a picture of someone who’s almost completely lost.”

The multi-faceted project, however, reveals itself to have numerous levels of meaning, with metaphors in artistic creation. He achieves a long-sightedness beyond the breakup towards a detached retelling as well as an attempt at a self-prescribed ‘remedy’: “There was another, extremely positive aspect to the whole thing. It was unquestionably during this period of my life that I first found some clear sense of myself as an artist. So amidst all that discomfort I also have this extremely fond memory of being truly, undeniably alive, and moving for the first time very deeply into an area of internal meaning, which was, for me, the first real step toward healing, growing, and becoming an adult. This album, to me, represents the starting point of everything else I’ve ever wanted to do as an artist.”

You can hear the scope of Bronson’s intense desire to produce a full-bodied exploration of his inner life as the album ranges in influence, from guitar driven rockscapes to raw simplicity, showcasing delicate instrumentation and chord sequencing as well as potent and poignant lyrics. There are numerous influences on the record, from the glossy classicism of Scott Walker, Neil Young and George Harrison, to a looseness and experimentation of modern converts to the folk-rock sound, such as Phosphorescent, Grizzly Bear and Iron & Wine. Growing up on a diet of 70s psychedelia has also lead to progressive fusions on a contemporary American sound, with a garage and pedal steel fuzz.

To introduce audiences to this new album, the track ‘Living In Name’ is available to stream and share:

“In some ways, ‘Living in Name’ is the quintessential song on The Long Lost,” says Bronson. “It’s the most minimal song on what is generally a much quieter, more internal album than its counterpart, Story. It was also recorded within a matter of days from when I wrote it, so there’s that level of immediacy in there as well. Like a lot of songs, it came as a very quick reaction to something that happened. Both emotionally and structurally it’s maybe the purest distillation and statement of meaning for the whole record as well as the actual process of creation for the entire Long Lost Story.”

Although the entire chronicle stems from an extremely personal trajectory, the resulting accessibility of Bronson’s music and the abundant creative community of the surrounding NYC has sparked industrious collaborations. The overriding example would be legendary producer and mix engineer Godfrey Diamond, known for his work with Lou Reed, Aerosmith and Sparks, who assisted David with the production and finishing of both albums and mixed both records.

Throughout the promotion of his debut, David also saw opportunity to work with New York Producer NESIMO and Brooklyn beatmaker Silk Lung to electronically revamp some tracks. With a personal taste for electronic stylings of the likes of Kavinsky, CSS and Vangelis himself, further remixes for ‘The Long Lost’ are to be expected on the horizon.

As any body of work which considers art as the defining element, aesthetics also play an important role for Bronson. ‘I’ve always had a deep love and appreciation for illustration, from a very young age being obsessed with comic books’ says David. This explains the boldly idiosyncratic and technically beautiful line-drawn, graphically-oriented themes prevalent not only in the album artwork (most of which was created by David’s twin brother Jeremy, also the records’ drummer) but also in an extensive back catalogue of music videos. These have involved collaborations with visual artists including Johnerick Lawson (who has previously worked with TV On The Radio) as well as a host of independents.

David’s dedication and meticulousness in making his ideas come alive has resulted in emotional and sonic opulence, and rather than being a heavily foreboding or overly moody project, The Long Lost Story is wholly an uplifting affair.

Daily Kos: Sequester threatens American scientific research for a …

It’s mostly reiteration, but I want to comment.

Losses are magnified in thoughtless cuts.

Decades of infrastructure in training, colonies, sites, and equipment is jeopardized. Buildings, sites, materials, and personnel are being lost irreversibly. It’s particularly vexing that the federal government is not hiring permanent researchers while maintaining rules against hiring researchers over 4 years removed from obtaining degrees. It is in essence a big factor in turning much of a generation of scientists away from their chosen career. And, basic science is being hit at least as hard as applied or biomedical science.

Now for speculation based on anecdotes. Please correct as seen fit.

Publications are rushed through with incomplete or shoddy work, because we must publish and who knows when we might get to improve our work with follow up or complementary experiments. Just get it out while we can.

A related outcome is that large, collaborative efforts are being cut back. Researchers are circling the wagons and withdrawing into trusted groups. Experiments and publications suffer. High impact work often involves large, collaborative efforts. How can we commit to 3+ years with each other if the foundation is so unstable.

Finally, as one who frequently works with Chinese, I can say with confidence that they are more than happy to replicate and overtake our efforts in cutting edge, multidisciplinary, and highly collaborative science. They are setting up computer capabilities, bypassing the NCBI and Uniprot with their own databases and culture collections, and encouraging big projects with sufficient funding.

I am not against replicating or overtaking, as long as we try. My wife is Chinese. But more than that, I think that science is worldwide and happy for progress anywhere. I wish to participate and hope that others in the US who are capable can do so as they wish.

Improving Eyesight with Pinhole Glasses – Get Visible Online Now


Eye Relaxing Glasses for Better Eyesight

Pinhole Glasses

Eyesight has been a difficulty for almost as long as I can remember. When I was about 6 years old, I had 20/20 vision. By the time I was 10, my eyesight had weakened to short-sighted. Probably about 3 feet. Although I was able to recognize people from a distance by identifying their physical mannerisms (which I did without really thinking about it), reading anything past a few feet  wasn’t an option.

Somehow I managed to get along without glasses until I was 21, although I did try hard lens contacts briefly. THAT was a mistake. My eyes were way too sensitive even for soft lenses. Ah well.

After years with poor eyesight and being away from home, I finally returned to visit and discovered my father had maintained his 20/20 vision (or close to it) by diligently exercising and relaxing his eyes with the See Clearly Method. He had taught me the method before i went to boarding school, but I had forgotten. Still again I lacked the discipline to commit to regular use of the routine.

Fast forward to today. My wife is getting ready to rexam with the DMV, and she wanted to make sure her eyesight was up to par. Her eyesight is much better than mine, and she is long-sighted, so she’s in much better shape than I! So to help her out I did some quick research online (of course) and discovered pinhole glasses.

I won’t bother trying to explain exactly how it works as it’s already explained HERE. We’ve ordered a pair and, after my wife is done with them, I will try them out and post the result. If they work for me, they’ll work for anyone!


Cambridge triggers gadget design revolution | Business Weekly …

Too much new technology is being put out of reach of millions of people in the UK because the designers fail to take account of common physical limitations, Cambridge University researchers claim.

They have backed up their call for a gadget and packaging products redesign revolution by creating a set of gloves and glasses which simulate limitations, like age-related long-sightedness or arthritis.

The simulation tools have been released in the hope of getting more designers to think again about the usability of their products.

Researchers at the university’s Engineering Design Centre say that millions of people around the country – notably the ageing, baby-boomer generation – have needless difficulty using everyday products ranging from gadgets, to packaging, to windows and doors, because of poor design. Addressing these issues would also reduce the costs of social care, they argue.

Many baby-boomers only suffer from mild problems, such as long-sightedness or pain and discomfort in their joints. Although these issues are far from unusual, they are rarely taken into account by mainstream manufacturers, builders and designers. Their customers often find a way to “make do” despite their difficulty using the product, but would benefit from simple and inexpensive design changes.

The simulation gloves and glasses now on sale allow designers to experience these limitations for themselves, so that they can identify opportunities for design improvements that would help these ‘baby-boomers’. The glasses even set a calibrated benchmark, calculated by researchers, which enables the wearer to work out if a product feature has sufficient visual clarity for 99 per cent of the population to be able to see it.

The development of the tools was led by Dr Sam Waller, an inclusive design researcher in Cambridge’s Engineering Design Centre, who studies how everyday products can be made and designed to accommodate the diverse abilities of different sectors of the population. His work builds on 10 years collaborative inclusive design research, conducted by Professors John Clarkson and Roger Coleman, and funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.

“The attitude among a lot of manufacturers tends to be: ‘If I can use it, everyone can,’” Dr Waller said. “The problem is that if I happen to be a typical, male designer, I may well have reasonably good vision. Everyone with better vision than me will be OK, but anyone whose vision is worse may experience frustration or difficulty.

“What we end up with is a large group of people who have to find some way of coping with this, perhaps by asking for help, and would benefit from minor design modifications. That section of the population is largely unaccounted for, and they would benefit hugely if there was a bit more awareness and appreciation of the different levels of ability out there.”

Resembling a pair of 3D specs, the simple simulation glasses can be stacked by the wearer to replicate various levels of impairment, reproducing the effects of problems such as cataracts, age-related long-sightedness, or even just having an out-of-date prescription.

Specifically, they pick up on difficulties with the size or contrast of product features that might compromise the user experience for people with moderate eyesight problems. By using them, a designer can tell if such groups will, for example, be able to pick out the power button on an electronic device, or a warning label that has been embossed on to a plastic surface.

Waller argues that such problems can often be addressed without any increase in production cost. The solution can be as simple as changing the colour of the plastic used to make a power button, so that it becomes more obvious.

The simulation gloves mimic arthritis of the knuckle joints. The more the wearer tries to rotate their joints by bending their fingers, the more they stiffen up, as the plastic skeleton around the gloves puts pressure on the knuckles. They show how this mild limitation can make simple but vital tasks – like opening food packaging – unnecessarily difficult and painful.

“Our hope is that mass-market manufacturers will start using these simulation tools during the development of their products in order to better inform the decisions they make,” Waller added. “This enables competitive advantage by improving the user experience, and also reduces social care costs for our ageing society.”

The simulation glasses and gloves are available now at
