Here is a list of three that I'm using, reading, and appreciating for the first of the month (July) and part of the "Three Dash Thursday" newsletter I send out weekly fo' FREE!
Here is your weekly shot of "3-Dash Thursday," a record of what I'm appreciating and learning.
The lists could include people I'm following, books I'm reading, blogs, videos, podcast episodes that had an impact, how-to's, audiobooks, quotes, apps, photos, etc...
-App I’m Using-
I know Voxer has been around for awhile now, and I remember downloading this app on my phone a couple years ago. I didn’t stick with it because I felt like it wore my battery down, and I wasn't ready to start using it. I jumped into my first Voxer group for podcasting and it’s really fun - so fun, in fact, I decided to pay the yearly charge of $29.99 to become a PRO user. If you want to start your own group, then you must pay a monthly charge (a little more) or a yearly charge (best deal). I started my own group based on the book club I started six months ago (#manbookclub), and it’s an awesome place to get feedback from people.
-What I'm listening to-
Audiobook - “How Not to Die” by Michael Greger, MD & Gen Stone, MD
Michael Greger was the guy that developed the website Nutrition Facts. In this long audiobook (I’m only four hours in out of seventeen total) he reveals the diet and tips backed by groundbreaking research that can reverse many of the diseases related to death. Diseases like heart disease, diabetes, various cancers, and even Alzheimer's. He reveals many remedies from plant-based diets that can have a prolonged effect on treating chronic illnesses and maybe even better than prescription medicine - like taking Hibiscus Tea for High Blood Pressure, or how to cure Diabetic Neuropathy in less than ten days with a plant based diet. These are just a few ideas discussed in the book and NEEDS to be listened to if you don't want to DIE :)
-Song I’m obsessed with right now-
“Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” by The Flaming Lips
“Her name is Yoshimi,
she’s a black belt in karate
Working for the city
She has to discipline her body
‘Cause she knows that
it’s demanding to defeat those evil machines.”
I might be biased because they are from Oklahoma City, but this song came out in 2002 and it was always a favorite of mine. It has that soothing quality and weirdness that I love. I have it on repeat anytime I want to get some work done (I’m listening to it right now). Download it and tell me what you think.
Send me any requests or suggestions through email or Twitter. What dash is your favorite? What do you want to see more of? Let me know. Send me a tweet @teachertunnel and put #3dashthursday to make it easy to find.
Enjoy the rest of your week...
Would you like to receive a short and entertaining email from me every Thursday with 3 interesting things I've found for the week to be of value?
This could include books I'm reading or listening to, websites I've come across, gear I'm enjoying, apps I'm trying out, documentaries that have an impact, and many other things that I really learned from and implemented.
The "Three Dash Thursday" emails are only available if you subscribe to the weekly newsletter. They will not be posted anywhere else after July
Try it out for a week or so, and see if you like it. Unsubscribing is easy and I manage everything, so if you have questions or comments you can always respond to the email and I will respond.
