01: John Gottman - How to Be a Master of Relationship. Welcome! My guest today is Dr. John Gottman, one of the world's leading experts on how to have an amazing relationship. He and his wife Julie currently operate The Gottman Institute in Seattle, offering numerous resources and training. Join us for a deep dive into their work! Dr. Gottman’s findings are largely based on the conclusions he has made over many years of research and observations of couples. He and his team have how to be a master (and avoid being a disaster) at relationship. Dr. Gottman discusses the following topics: “The Sound Relationship House” - what is the foundation for a relationship that lasts? Learn the importance of having high expectations in relationship, and also uncover ways in which what you'd *think* would be good for your relationship is actually counterproductive. Dr. Gottman identifies Styles of Confronting Conflict: Volatile, Validating, and Conflict-Avoiding. All of these conflict styles can lead to successful relationships. Learn what to do if you and your partner are mismatched in your conflict style. Dr. Gottman discusses “bids” we make with our partner as an attempt to connect. Are you a "yes" to your partner's bids? Are they a yes to yours? “Bids” that fail are often the beginnings of conflict. How do things change if you start paying attention and responding to your partner's bids in a positive way? Mindfulness is the key to noticing these bids and avoiding conflict. “Small Things Often” - a reminder to turn toward these bids in the small moments of life. Dr. Gottman's concept of startup is a way of thinking about what you bring to your interactions with your partner. Do you start in a place that's already positive, and thinking highly of your partner? Or do you start in a place where you are suspecting the worst of your partner? Build up your emotional bank account with small compliments (deposits). According to John, there are three phases of any relationship: Falling in Love (initial), Building Trust (middle), and Cherishing Your Partner (long-term intimacy). What phase are you in? The key to success is using strategies that are appropriate for where you are in your relationship. The key to more sex is having the freedom to say "no" without being punished for it. If refusing sex can actually have a positive payoff, then it will actually lead to a couple having a more satisfying (and frequent) sex life. Do you ever wonder how to make a good relationship GREAT? Focus on cherishing your partner. What if YOU are the only partner who wants to make changes? Can you make a difference? Absolutely. Learn how shifts in your approach can have a profound affect on your relationship. The key to success in a relationship isn't that nothing bad ever happens. It's how well you as a couple learn how to repair after those things occur. John discusses how you can learn to repair, and the positive effects that has on long-term relationships. Do you know how to decide if you’re in a bad relationship? When you're with your partner, are you at your best? Or are you veering off towards your worst? Gottman offers this simple guideline for how to know whether to stay or go. Also what to think about BEFORE you decide that you're on the wrong path. Join us for these topics and more.

Turning Kids Into Grown-Ups. Parenting is fraught with uncertainty, changing with each generation. This hour, TED speakers share ideas about raising kids and how — despite our best efforts — we're probably still doing it wrong. Guests include former Stanford dean Julie Lythcott-Haims, former firefighter Caroline Paul, author Peggy Orenstein, psychologist Dr. Aala El-Khani, and poet Sarah Kay.
Parenting Doesn't Matter (Or Not As Much As You Think). The multibillion-pound parenting industry tells us we can all shape our children to be joyful, resilient and successful. But what if it’s all bunk? Intelligence Squared are bringing together a panel of top geneticists and parenting experts to explore just how important parenting is.Arguing in favour of the motion are Robert Plomin, Psychologist and Professor of Behavioural Genetics at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London; and Stuart Ritchie, Lecturer in the Social Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre at King’s College London.Arguing against the motion were Susan Pawlby, a developmental Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years of experience working with mothers and babies both in clinical and research contexts; and Ann Pleshette Murphy, a therapist, parenting counsellor and advocate for young children and their families.The debate was chaired by Xand van Tulleken, a medical doctor and broadcaster who has presented numerous shows for the BBC and Channel 4, often alongside his identical twin brother Chris.

Rank #1: Employees Must Wash Hands After Exposing Themselves - Happy Hour - It's New Orleans. Andrew Ward has more weird experiences than 20 Happy Hour guests combined. Without even mentioning the royal Indian heritage of his transgender chickens, how he gets to be involved in Louisiana s record setting race to be number one in the country for Gonorrhea, or the fact that Yulman Lapalanian is his step dad, Andrew s regular night in a bar on Frenchmen Street is not like yours. On Andrew s average night the bartender drops his pants to illustrate a point by displaying his genitals which turn out to have Batman tattooed on one testicle, Superman on the other, and what is going on in between you ll have to figure out for yourself. Christine Clouatre was a bartender on Al Copeland s yacht and is here to say Al never hit on her once. Maybe it was because she told him that she spent her off hours in the jerk off room at the adult sex store on Airline Highway. That was all a long time ago. Today she s an upright citizen who spends her off hours beading like a Mardi Gras Indian with her beading krewe, the Dames de Perlage. Julie Lodato is a fellow Dame and a beading Saints fan, as you can see from her intricate bead work scene of the classic Gleason punt. By day, Julie creates artwork that sells Blue Runner Beans, Crystal Hot Sauce, and other Louisiana goodies. Andrew Duhon returns from a musical run up and down the great American highway to play a beautiful new song inspired by the stoic travails of his mom who has "the good kind of cancer." This is the kind of song that restores your faith in the over used term, "singer songwriter." Oh, just in case you were wondering if there s anything you might not have heard in a barroom conversation before, Andrew Ward relates what he s been up to lately convincing Ugandan men to have a circumcision while they re hanging out at a music festival in Uganda. For real. Photos at Wayfare by Alison Moon.
Rank #2: Angiogenesis - Happy Hour - It's New Orleans. Andrew Duhon returns to Happy Hour after recording his new album, titled fill in the blank . If you have an idea for a title there s a free record, T shirt, and all kinds of other goodies waiting for you. Andrew describes the process of looking for a title amongst his ruminations on the river of love, pain and sundry other emotions that courses through the human body. Any ideas striking you yet Listen to Andrew play a couple of songs off the new album and maybe something will hit you like it hit Dr. Kathy Jo Carstarphen, aka K.J. K.J s idea for a title to Andrew s record is Angiogenesis. If you want to be 100 sure about the meaning of that you could Google it but K.J. is a doctor and describes it in a way that even a geriatric like Grant or her geriatric patients can understand, after a few drinks. K.J. also describes how we in New Orleans have achieved one of the highest rankings in America for the transmission of HIV and Syphillis, which is good to know because you don t get to read much in the news about Syphilis these days. You can, however, do something about the spread of these disaeses simply by having a few drinks and listening to music care of K.J. s Krewe du Sante. Advocate reporter Ramon Antonio Vargas explains why even exceptional numbers of NOLA deaths from VD don t make the news unless the syphillis patient also gets run over his own driveway by his car. Ramon has his own medical adventure stories, including a rough night on the soccer field and a 1,400 ambulance ride. Ever wondered what s in Hangover Destroyer Today s the day you find out.

The Elmer’s truck is from Pop Evans’ fun group, New Orleans “Black” in the Day on Facebook. Elmer’s Gold Brick was more of a year-round candy. Now, the egg-shaped version is an Easter treat. So, there’s a group on the Book of Face, “The New Orleans Culture.” I enjoy the people and the posts, and share a good bit there. This is in addition to sharing at Ain’t There No More. While I don’t like posting unattributed photos, I want to talk about this one. If you know the photographer, please let me know, so I can get proper permission! Before the photo unpack, we’ll do the best of “Today in New Orleans History” for this week. The Greater New Orleans Bridge Opens Construction progresses on the Greater New Orleans Bridge 1-February-1957 (photographer unknown) The Greater New Orleans Bridge opened to vehicular traffic on 15-April-1958. The Mississippi River Bridge Authority took bids for a new bridge across the river in 1957. They accepted one in November of that year. By the next spring, the Huey P. Long Bridge in Jefferson was no longer the only bridge crossing in the metro New Orleans Area. While the Huey had lanes for cars, its main role was as a railroad bridge. The GNO Bridge connected Algiers and Gretna residents with downtown New Orleans. The single-span bridge required “traffic controls” by the 1970s. MRBA police blocked traffic in the mornings at various choke points. They opened one route to the bridge at a time, in 10-15 minute intervals. This created a more-orderly flow in the mornings. These traffic controls annoyed commuters. The state funded construction of a second span in 1984. The current incarnation of Da Bridge is named the Crescent City Connection. Today in New Orleans History 15-April-2019 Unpacking the Bayou We continue photo segments on NOLA History Guy Podcast 20-April-2019. Street-level photos of Bayou St. John inspire artists and writers alike. Bayou Bridge crosses at Esplanade Avenue. Magnolia Bridge (visible in this photo) crosses in front of Cabrini High School. While Magnolia appears to be a bridge to nowhere, the streetcar used to pass by on Moss Street. Therefore, folks could take the Esplanade line, get off at the bridge, and then walk across to homes in the City Park neighborhood. Trees envelope Pitot House, on the left side of the bayou. Our Lady of the Rosary, on Esplanade Avenue, stands just outside the frame on the left. This photo shows the church’s backyard. Down the Bayou The second turn, on the other side of Magnolia bridge, offers a last bit of waterway. BSJ ends just out of frame on the right. The bayou leads the way to Parkway Bakery, on Hagan Street. The Faubourg St. John neighborhood flows from Esplanade, to Orleans Avenue (more or less) on the left side.

Rank #1: Pelvic Speech - Out to Lunch - It's New Orleans. In business, we go to great pains to treat men and women equally. But when it comes to pain itself, men and women are not always equal. That s why Sara Reardon opened NOLA Pelvic Health. NOLA Pelvic Health is the first and only clinic in New Orleans that specializes in the treatment of women s pelvic floor muscle dysfunctions including pelvic pain, bowel and bladder dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, and pregnancy and postpartum recovery. Dr Lana Joseph is the founder of High Level Speech and Hearing. There are two High Level Speech and Hearing clinics in New Orleans one Uptown and one in Elmwood where you can get all kinds of audiology services, from getting your hearing tested, to getting your hearing aid repaired. Generally, when we talk about healthcare we re thinking about one of two scenarios getting treatment for everyday ailments like the flu. Or catastrophic illness, like heart disease or cancer. For these eventualities we expect to be taken care of by health clinics, or hospitals, that are generally part of large health systems. But there are other types of healthcare that fall into specialty areas, that are cared for by small, private clinics, like NOLA Pelvic Health and High Level Hearing.

Rank #1: Where Y’Eat: Tiny Joints Make Big Difference in the French Quarter. Go big or go home? In the French Quarter these days I’ve been thinking precisely the opposite, and feeling right at home at a clutch of spots that run small to tiny. These are little bars and cafes and restaurants - and the sweet spot somewhere between bar and restaurant. And they’ve been some of my very favorite places lately.
Rank #2: Where Y’Eat: When The Crawfish Faithful Dig Into Different Boils. Crawfish fanatics put more than just spice in their boils. They put time, effort, attention and maybe even personality and pride. It’s no surprise then that once they find a signature approach they’re bound to stick to it, and defend it. But as a crawfish lover, as someone who is always hovering over the boiling pot and ready to wedge into a crawfish table, I’m fascinated by different techniques that give different results.
Rank #1: Cultural Tourism At Its Finest: Food-Studies In New Orleans - Louisiana Eats - It's New Orleans. Using food as a way to understand the world is something your parents probably never studied in college, but it's has become a popular discipline in the past decade.

Rank #2: Katrina: The Debris // Green Dot. The first comprehensive map for rebuilding New Orleans came out in early 2006, about six months after the flood. Saying it was highly anticipated would be an understatement. On it, some symbols that appeared as a death knell for some neighborhoods: green dots.
