Ask Dr. Bunny. How are words impactful? Joseph Gilbert, guest

Joseph Gilbert

Joseph Gilbert joins Dr. Bunny to discuss words, language, and how words are impactful.

A word is two things at once: it’s a sound & it refers to a thing. How are vocalizing and verbalizing different?  Vocalizing predates verbalizing. Vocalizing communicates emotion.

Verbalizing also communicates emotion, but it brings to mind specific things. Have you ever thought about that?

Joseph looks at language as the active creator of the culture. We can use a computer as a metaphor: the hardware would be the language, the culture would be the operating system and the software would be what you can do within that culture.

Did you ever stop and think about the feeling that goes along with a word? Did you ever wonder how the meaning of a word affects you, or evokes emotion in you?

The roots of our language go back to pre-Greek and pre-Roman times.

Tune in and learn how culture is passed along from generation to generation, and so much more.

This is a fascinating interview that will have you thinking about the things you say every day!

About Kier Shapiro & Kier Associates:

Kier Associates (formerly Kier Shapiro Consulting) was founded by Kier Shapiro in 1996 while he was employed by New Horizons Computer Learning Center.  At the time Kier was the training supervisor and a technical trainer himself. Frequently during the course of presenting classes, he was asked if he could perform consulting services and customized training outside of the offerings of New Horizons. Recognizing this need, he formed the consulting service and left New Horizons a year later.

In 1997 he was contracted by XO Communications (formerly NEXTLINK Communications) to design, install, train, and support a nationwide 600-user Sales Force Automation system built around ACT! and was subsequently hired. He primarily focused on his responsibility to XO Communications while still working part-time in the consulting capacity at Kier Associates. Kier stayed with XO Communications through spring of 2000 at which time he completed orchestrating the replacement of his SFA system with the next generation of Customer Relations Management applications, Siebel Systems.

Since spring of 2000, Kier has been focusing specifically on consulting services in the areas of custom ACT! installation and development, computer networking, computer system upgrade and support, and software training. As with all people in the computer industry, Kier has been keeping current on the latest cutting edge technologies and certifications.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Islands Of Deception, Lying With The Enemy? Connie Hood, guest

Author Connie Hood joins Dr. Bunny to discuss her new book, Islands Of Deception – Lying With The Enemy.

Connie shares a fascinating story that will have you intrigued from the very first moment. You’ll learn how she got this incredible information to start with, which in itself is fascinating! The story came to Connie in pieces, and the process was amazing. This is an interview you don’t want to miss!

About Islands Of Deception – Lying With The Enemy:

Imagine learning that your father was a spy, someone who had carefully concealed his cultural heritage and his WWII exploits. A sheaf of papers arrived in the mail more than 50 years after these events had taken place. What happened was verified in U.S. Army records and the conflicting accounts that he and his sister had related over the years. In this case, a new story emerged after time had erased the original scenes.

About Constance Hood:
Constance Hood has earned professional credits as an artist and a writer in both theatre and classical music. These interests and a passion for story telling first emerged while a student at Occidental College where she earned her BA in Comparative Literature as well as a minor in music. Her day job was as a literacy expert, educating students from “Which way do you hold the book?” through Advanced Placement Writing skills. Mrs. Hood served in the Los Angeles City Schools as a teacher, Literacy Coach, and Grants Coordinator, picking up graduate degrees in education along the way. She also contributed to textbooks and instructional materials in the arts and in language acquisition. Creative thinking and the arts remained at the center of all work, whether it was teaching students how to envision a scene, or leading adult workshops in theatre and writing. For nearly a decade she wrote instructional materials for Center Theatre Group in Los Angeles, and performed for the Los Angeles Philharmonic youth programs as a workshop artist.
