Networking & Connecting, Making New Friends, Sharing Resources & Information, Finding & Posting Events, Clients & Customers, Ashland
2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
Elementals: Earth, Air, Fire & Water.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
My company, Pacific Rim Training Group, helps people and companies create their own highly effective workshops, seminars, and communication events; I also help small business owners and entrepreneurs extend their marketing reach during these challenging economic times by helping them attract new prospects through public learning events. Depending on your experience, time and resources, I can guide you through the design process, offer a reviewer's perspective or build the entire event for you whereby you just turn it on and run. I work collaboratively with my clients to meet their specific need within their budget, be it great or modest.

My background spans a wide range of functions in human performance management practices including human resources, customer service, sales, organizational development and leadership development. I hold a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology and Bachelors Degrees in Religious Studies and Mass Communications. I have performed both as a captured employee in the role of an instructional designer, trainer and Learning & OD Manager; and I have contracted externally as a training consultant meeting the needs of well know companies such as Sun Microsystems, PG&E, Cisco Systems, Safeway Foods, Oracle and more. I have oodles of experience in helping people and organizations change participant behavior and improve performance. I can help you identify needs, build collateral, present content and evaluate results. Even if you are an experienced seminar provider, I can help focus your sessions so you to turn good workshops in to great learning opportunities for your attendees and customers.

My passion is to help innovative people like you build learning events that inspire participants to attain new levels of performance and creativity through an engaged learning process. Whether your goal is to improve the bottom line, train employees in specific business practices or help guide people towards leading a fuller spiritual life, I can help your audience change their attitudes, increase their knowledge and improve their skills. Contact me through this forum to learn more.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
Having been one of the founding members and volunteer manager of the Ashland Community Garden for a number of years, I appreciate the wonderful resources we have in Jackson County and Ashland: the Master Gardeners Association, 4H, local CSAs, Ashland Parks & Rec, The Neighborhood Garden Project, the Growers Market and many more organizations that help people purchase or grown food locally. I would like to team up with folks to take the concept of the community garden and evolve it into the "garden community." A sustainable Garden Community is one that encourages and rejuvenates minimally used land for use in growing local food. Possible resources include public park lands, vacant lots, road side meridians and other areas that could be put in to organic food production or simply beautiful places to visit. As a garden community we can plant fruit and nut trees in public areas; rescue dormant orchards; improve the aesthetic at ground level and provide opportunities for people to decrease dependency on non-regional resources by growing food locally for themselves and their neighbors. Community sustainability doesn't happen with some grandiose project; it becomes a reality with one garden plot at a time. I'll expand on this concept in coming weeks.

The other project I would like to build is what I call the community learning project. I can see teaming up with people that have knowledge and skills that differ greatly from mine to create new learning experiences for others. Whether your expertise is technical, visual or performing arts, business, esoteric or another mind-body-heart practice, we can learn from each other. The idea is to find ways to help people generate revenue from their knowledge base and then share that knowledge or skill with others.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
My favorite books and media change over time as I learn new things. However, there are constant themes that percolate to the surface that gain my attention from time to time. Favorites include the following:

* Robert Bly, Iron John
* Michael Pollan: Botany of Desire and The Omnivore's Dilemma.
* Malcolm Gladwell: Outliner
* Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
* Synoptic Gospels
* John Robert McNeil & William McNeil: The Human Web: A Bird's Eye View of Human History
* Kim Stanley Robinson: The Years of Rice and Salt
* Peter Tompkins & Christopher Bird: The Secret Life of Plants
* James Michener: The Source

Coronavirus News

Explosive If True: “I’m a Clinical Lab Scientist, C19 Is Fake, Wake up America” | The True Defender !

What we found was that all of the 1500 samples were mostly Influenza A and some were influenza B, but not a single case of Covid, and we did not use the B.S. PCR test. We then sent the remainder of the samples to Stanford, Cornell, and a few of the University of California labs and they found the same results as we did, NO COVID. They found influenza A and B. All of us then spoke to the CDC and asked for viable samples of COVID, which CDC said they could not provide as they did not have any samples. We have now come to the firm conclusion through all our research and lab work, that the COVID 19 was imaginary and fictitious. The flu was called Covid and most of the 225,000 dead were dead through co-morbidities such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, emphysema etc. and they then got the flu which further weakened their immune system and they died. I have yet to find a single viable sample of Covid 19 to work with. We at the 7 universities that did the lab tests on these 1500 samples are now suing the CDC for Covid 19 fraud. the CDC has yet to send us a single viable, isolated and purifed sample of Covid 19. If they can’t or won’t send us a viable sample, I say there is no Covid 19, it is fictitious. The four research papers that do describe the genomic extracts of the Covid 19 virus never were successful in isolating and purifying the samples. All the four papers written on Covid 19 only describe small bits of RNA which were only 37 to 40 base pairs long which is NOT A VIRUS. A viral genome is typically 30,000 to 40,000 base pairs.

COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test Led To Cerebrospinal Fluid Leak | Forbes

Many who’ve had a nasal Covid-19 test performed on themselves have described it as feeling like that swab got as far back as their brains. If done correctly, the swab is angled parallel to the floor, all the way to the back of the nose, and the swab is rubbed on an area called the nasopharynx. The actual term is a nasopharyngeal swab, not nasal swab, because it’s the nasopharynx that contains the highest possible viral load to best determine an active Covid-19 infection. The distance from the average nasal tip to the nasopharynx is close to 6 inches. So if it feels like there’s a half a foot being stuck up your nose, well, you’re not so far off.

US to Require Quarantine for All International Air Travelers | The Epoch Times

President Joe Biden on Jan. 21 issued an executive order that would require international air travelers to quarantine upon arrival to the United States.

CDC says asymptomatic people don't need testing, draws criticism from experts | TheHill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) quietly changed its guidance on Monday to now say that asymptomatic people do not need to be tested for coronavirus, even if they have been in close contact with an infected person. The agency made the move by updating its website but did not make any public announcement or explain the reasoning behind the major revision.  The guidance now states: “If you have been in close contact (within 6 feet) of a person with a COVID-19 infection for at least 15 minutes but do not have symptoms: You do not necessarily need a test unless you are a vulnerable individual or your health care provider or State or local public health officials recommend you take one.”

What Kind of Covid Test Should I Get? Answers on Cost, Accuracy and More | WSJ

There are two generally available types of Covid-19 tests. The first, and most commonly used so far, is a PCR test, which is short for polymerase chain reaction. It’s a molecular test, meaning it searches for the virus’s genetic material in a nasal swab or saliva sample, and it is often processed in a highly complex laboratory. There are two ways to collect a nasal sample: from the inside of a nostril, or from the back of the nose and throat. The second way, called a nasopharyngeal swab, requires a professional to probe more deeply into the nasal cavity to get the sample. Some testing sites may ask you to swab your nose or cheek yourself, or spit into a tube. Each of these collection methods creates a sample that can be analyzed with a PCR test. Antigen tests, which search the sample for viral proteins instead of the virus’s genetic code, are becoming more widespread in the U.S. Right now, antigen tests are typically offered at doctor’s offices, nursing homes, schools and other congregate settings where groups of people need testing fast.
