In training up our children the way they should go, how many of us mothers consider our duty to train them in Christian apologetics? I'll talk it over with Hillary Morgan Ferrer, author of "Mama Bear Apologetics." Plus: What are the roots of what ails academia? Dr. John Ellis, distinguished professor emeritus at the University of California, Santa Cruz, will discuss his book, "The Breakdown of Higher Education: How it Happened, the Damage it Does and What Can Be Done." That's on Friday's JANET MEFFERD TODAY.
In today’s podcast, John Ellis joins Bryan to talk about indoor air quality (IAQ). He also explains the ideal process for providing IAQ solutions. John has a lot of experience work as a consultant for people who have respiratory issues. The HVAC and IAQ fields intersect in the areas of thermal comfort, humidity, building pressures, ventilation, filtration, and source control (which pollutants are present, where they come from, and how we can remove them). John does not believe in throwing IAQ products at a problem. He believes in a thorough analysis of the structure to present the customer with solutions tailored to their home and needs. Ideally, John would like to see technicians take a process-oriented approach to indoor air quality: investigate, analyze, and quote. He believes in the power of slow, complete diagnosis, including listening to customers’ complaints. Remember, they’ve been living in the structure and can tell you about the issues they’ve noticed in their home and their health concerns. When you analyze a system, you may have to do additional testing beyond a visual inspection. Sometimes, you can’t always find fungal growth or must call an expert to test for asbestos. The key to practicing IAQ is to be open-minded and seek help from experts beyond your field. While IAQ solutions can be expensive, they can be well worth it for many customers. Try not to pass your own judgment on the prices; after all, you are performing quality work and could save your customer money on medical bills. John also explains: How to start training for IAQ sales Customer questionnaires Maintenance agreements Becoming comfortable with IAQ diagnostics How to present high costs and financing options to customers Being a truly caring, attentive consultant IAQ marketing Making money as an IAQ consultant If you want to talk to John about IAQ, you can contact him at (505)-652-8119 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

3: #3 Creative AI — with Anima Anandkumar and John Ellis
The CERN Sparks! Podcast - Future Intelligence
We can dream, we can hallucinate, we can create — so how do we build those capabilities into AI? Deep-learning expert Anima Anandkumar and distinguished theoretical physicist John Ellis discuss the potential for artificial intelligence to one day collaborate with us in attacking the biggest unanswered questions in physics — questions which have outwitted humans for years. In a conversation ranging from the quantum nature of subatomic reality to the distributed intelligence of the octopus, our guests explore how AI might one day tackle questions which are conceptually boundless and infinite. “This would be truly stealing the theoretical physicists’ lunch,” says Ellis. To find out more, join hosts Mark Rayner and Abha Eli Phoboo as they speak with Anima and John on the subject of Creative AI. Anima Anandkumar is a leading machine-learning researcher whose career spans academia and industry. John Ellis is one of the world’s most respected theoretical physicists.

Culture Cancel FolliesBy John EllisCancel culture is one of the most unlovely of the radical left’s contributions to our society. It’s currently rampant, and its reach is limitless; even the great philosopher David Hume's name has been removed from a University of Edinburgh building because of alleged racism. And we can be sure that many more giants of our culture will soon enough be canceled because the past offers any number of further victims - precisely because it’s the past.
