Soul Luminous Radio – Kate Mackinnon– February 25th, 2015

Hosts: Michelle Rober (@RoberLeap); John Masiulionis (@JohnMasiulionis)

In this week’s excursion into the Soul-Universe, John and Michelle welcome the healing hands and beautiful heart of author and personal craniosacral practitioner to Wayne Dyer – Kate Mackinnon! Her newly released book “From My Hands and Heart” published by Hay House, is powerful and practical tool to allow us all to become healers of our own bodies. Kate shares with us in this personal conversation, how to awaken our own “healing awareness” to access our bodies “inner wisdom” – our primordial and miraculous innate healing powers to bring not only relief from physical symptoms such as pain, disease, and inflammation, but to actually reveal and address the root of the stress likely originating from a past trauma which the body still “remembers”. Kate’s mission is to create ease for the body, to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself and she does this through the noninvasive technique of “gentle touch” which is the cornerstone CST.

Kate Mackinnon has inspired our message of the week, “Feel the Inner Wisdom of Your Body” and our action of the week “Support Your Own Healing”. Step off of the hectic treadmill of daily life – stop, breath and become aware of your body for just this moment. Relax and sense what your body is telling you…Is there pain, tension, injury? How will you respond to this newly discovered wisdom? Track these sensations…allow them…This simple practice is just the beginning of you supporting your body’s intrinsic ability to heal.

Kate welcomes you to explore the gentle yet powerful techniques of Craniosacral Therapy – techniques which you can practice TODAY simply by reading her book. Sounds good, doesn’t it, Soul-Universe?

The Last Round – Episode 62

Welcome to The Last Round, a weekly episodic podcast where we fear for our lives as this Saturday we fear for our lives as we’ll eat the bacon wrapped bacon pizza of death.

We start the show off talking about the NBA and the most recent set back for Derrick Rose and what this means for the Bulls and the rest of the East. We talk about the crazy ass trade deadline that took place in the NBA and broke down what teams benefited the most and which ones didn’t help themselves that much.

After the NBA we talk a little bit of MLB and how in the coming shows we’ll talk more about spring training and the news of A ROD coming back and if he still has what it takes to play in the MLB.

We then dive into our Top 3/Turrible 3 which is always tasteful and full of thoughtful insight.

Lastly we talk our WWE talk and The Road to WrestleMania and where everything stands right now as well as the Divas twitter movement and how NXT is ruining the WWE for us.

Gamers 4 Giving 2015 CS:Go Recap

As we walked into Gamers 4 Giving 2015, my team (MMORPG) were excited to compete in the CS GO Tournament. The tournament was scheduled to begin at 1:30 PM on Saturday and then continue on Sunday. At the beginning of the LAN, I should have realized everything was wrong.

For example, a progression format was to begin the tournament in which all the teams were separated into groups. We had a perfect setup with 12 teams in which we could have played 5 games each, breaking it into 2 groups of 6. Instead of following this format, they decided to do a 12 team double elimination bracket to eliminate the 4 worst teams.

http://gfg.challonge.com/CSGO2015

In the end, 4 teams became eliminated, and for the most part it would appear they should have been the 4 that were not in the top 8. The issues at hand were that some teams played 1 game during the prelims, and some teams played 3 games.

The rules specifically stated that the map pool would follow in order as they are listed (inferno, dust2, overpass, cache, mirage, and nuke), but instead, they played Cache first, and wasn’t until I said something in which Inferno was then map #2 and Dust2 was map #3. So by the end of the 3rd round (lower bracket round 1) it was almost 10:00pm on Saturday, and we wasted the entire day for God only knows what. Also, having a toss-toss-pick-pick format is kind of weird with only 6 maps, since then the top seeded team gets to Toss two maps.

The next day the tournament was to begin at roughly 12:00 which is when we were told to be there. I believe we started round 1 at 1:30/1:45 or so, and it went from a double elimination best of 3 to a single elimination best of 3, which is pretty crazy for a cash prize tournament.

The issue on an even bigger scale is that the teams and how they were seeded. My team, MMORPG was seeded in 8th place, and faced team Siqnasty.net, whom got a 16-0 win and a 16-0 forfeit win, making them undefeated with 0 points against. Whereas my team was the only team not to go 16-0/16-1 in the lower bracket and ranked us 8th. This placed us against a “1st place” team Siqnasty.net, which allowed us to advance much easier to the semi-finals of the tournament.

It was obvious that the admins were way over their heads, maybe they bit off more than they could chew, or maybe they just didn’t know what to do, but the logistics of the tournament along with the time issues were just unacceptable for any event.

SO, how do you fix it.

Step 1, you should have at least 1 server for every 2 teams. Having 3 servers for 6 teams put you in a time constraint the second you started the tournament, and the tournament was already delayed by hours.
Step 2, use Swiss Formatting to get a true scale and ranking for seedings. Challonge allows you to do it, and it gives your players more time to play the game, especially if they came just to play that game.
Step 3, have better abilities to contact the admins. Easy way to do it, Mibbit (IRC) or adding the server admins on steam for direct contact. This also keeps the admin at his computer for a lot of the time, and can easily be found (before and during the tournament it was damn near impossible to find him sometimes).

For a company that runs such amazing tournaments for other games, this was a poor poor effort. I hope they fix it next year, or ask for help from those willing to help.

Soul Luminous Radio – Dirk Terpstra – February 18th, 2015

Hosts: Michelle Rober (@RoberLeap); John Masiulionis (@JohnMasiulionis)

In this week’s adventure into the Soul-Universe, Michelle and John discover Dirk Terpstra, founder of Soul Love, and a world wide messenger, sharing kindness, love and gratitude! John also discovers through the magic of Soul Luminous Serendipity, that Dirk is in fact his “soul brother” in this journey we call life! Dirk shares his experiences in finding his way back home from darker times by following his heart – to lead him to a place of love to contribute more to the world. Dirk speaks of love and loss and the need for us, within these painful times to actually accept and embrace that discomfort…to allow the experience of the painful emotion instead of trying to push it away. “Allow it to come through you…but know it’s OK….this is the way I felt the love come from inside of me…”.

Dirk inspires our message of the week, “Listen to Your Whispering Voice Within” and our action words of the week, “Be Who You Are Meant to Be”. Listen to that soft but urgent calling…that common tickle of an invitation – to stop, breathe and make the change…whatever it is. This is the call of your soul – asking to be expressed. Acknowledge it. Be courageous, discard the fear of expressing your truth and Be Who You Are Meant to Be”.

Welcome to The Last Round, a weekly (sometimes) episodic podcast where we put a lot of thought into our Top 3/Turrible 3.

This week we kick things off talking about the NXT PPV from last week and give our thoughts about how NXT is doing right now as a whole and what it means for the talent in NXT and on the main roster.

We then hit up the NBA and All Star Weekend and what we thought about the 3 point shootout, the dunk contest and the game itself. After talking NBA All Star Weekend we gave some preview info style stuff on the 2nd half of the season and what we expect to happen.

We then talk a very productive Top 3/Turrible 3 that involves bacon, losing weight and Catholics. Yup.

And from here on out at least one show a month we will try and preview some of the big block buster movies coming out this year.
