Automated, shared, and electric vehicles, called the "3 Revolutions" bring massive opportunities to improve safety, manage congestion, advance equity, and reduce pollution in transportation. But these new technologies will also challenge existing governance models. The future of transportation will require smart governance, which includes performance-based and flexible regulatory mechanisms. This briefing will explain why the advent of the "3 Revolutions" era requires reevaluation of roles for federal, state, and local authorities. It will also cover ways to enable innovation while respecting privacy, proprietary, and safety concerns. Experts will discuss research findings and perspectives on how to harness the 3 Revolutions for the benefit of all. This event is hosted by the UC Davis Policy Institute for Energy, Environment, and the Economy and the 3 Revolutions Future Mobility Program.
The Wellness Leadership Revolution is a 2-day 100% Training event (no pitching and NO selling from the stage) where we show you how to create a Wellness Leadership business that allows you to dramatically increase your income, results and lifestyle freedom enabling you to ultimately work from anywhere around the globe.
The first step toward building a wellness leadership business that allows you to make a big impact and enjoy the time and financial freedom you dream about, is to leverage your best resource: Your Wisdom.
There are another 6 key insights listed below that you need to know to enter the top 1% of the industry and become a global wellness leader.
1. Package Your Wisdom.
You begin to rise above competition when you discover how to package your intellectual property, or what we like to call your wisdom property. This is your signature strategies, methodologies and programs. You have within you countless millions of dollars of ideas and insight into how to transform the human condition into freedom. You've been through a lot, and experienced so much, now is the time to begin packaging up this wisdom for the benefit of others and becoming the leader you were born to be.
What do you know that can help others?
2. Create Your Wellness journey
Now more than ever before, your audience is moving away from generic information and instead looking for specialised, self empowering, enlightening and empowering training. Google can only provide information, therefore it’s your job to create a sequenced “Wellness Journey” for your tribe. Sequencing your information in the right order and mentoring your clients to wellness is not only very lucrative for you, empowering for your clients, but it's also something Dr Google will never be able to provide.
What's your Wellness Journey?
3. Aim for a BIG mission.
Your audience wants to know why you exist and why they should join you. Now, more than ever, people want to work alongside organisations and leaders who have authenticity, integrity and a big end goal in mind that makes a positive difference to the planet. At Wellness Leadership our mission is to move 10 million people to wellness by the year 2020.
What's your mission?
4. Enter Genius Mode
Work towards spending more time working on your business, in your genius mode rather than stuck slaving away in it. You will need to automate the systems you are currently stuck managing day to day. Free yourself up to work more in your “Genius mode” and spend the majority of your time delivering the highest quality, empowering products, books, events and programs you have to offer.
How much of your time are you spending in Genius Mode?
5. Deliver through many branches.
You can no longer rest on your laurels and expect your income to continue through just one stream. The leaders of the wellness industry are all delivering high value empowerment to their tribe through many branches such as authorship, coaching, speaking, training and licensing, and they’re earning 10x more than the average practitioner.
What other branches can you grow to deliver your healing fruit?
6. Work from anywhere.
Having location freedom means you can spend more time with the people you love the most, and at the same time free yourself up to make a much bigger difference to the world. When you have the freedom to work from anywhere you also have more time to spend doing your best work. Imagine sitting on your favourite beach, writing your book, or authoring your online program, or watching the sales come in via your online shopping cart. It's the dream of all healers and coaches to spend more time doing more of what they love.
What difference could location freedom make to your life?
7. Become a Social Entrepreneur.
We’re pretty confident that if you made over $1 Million a year, you probably wouldn't go out and buy the most expensive home or car or exploit people with your riches. The ultimate goal of a wellness leader is to use your wealth to give back, help humanity prosper and make a bigger difference to the planet. We all have the potential of global transformation within us.
Will difference will your success make to the planet?

Q: My business is struggling to scale. How can I justify this investment?
A: If your business is struggling, it’s partly due to the fact that you weren’t taught effective wellness marketing strategies during your study. By investing the financial equivalent of just one hour of your time in practice, you will receive the exact strategies that are working, right now.
Q: I'm not sure I can take time away from my business and my regular life to attend a live event. How can I justify the time away?
A: If you feel like you don't have time to invest 2 days in business growth, then you really need this event. Consider this an investment of your time that is sure to pay off by providing you with strategies to re-claim your time & your dream lifestyle!
Q: How is this event different from other business-building events?
A: First of all, it's 100% specific to the wellness industry, and helping you become a leader in this industry. We understand that you don't want to be sold to, and that you don’t want to sell to others. We have formulated our trainings to be non-salesy, authentic and we always come from the heart.
Q: I've taken lots of business trainings – how can I be sure I'll learn something new at yours?
A: We show you how to create your own signature intellectual property specific to the wellness industry. As far as we know, no one else on the planet is doing this right now for wellness leaders. We don't teach normal business strategies. We teach leadership and empowering marketing strategies specific to the wellness industry, so you can have 100% conviction and confidence in your message – and so your message reaches your local and global tribe.
Q: I've already worked with coaches like you. How are you unique?
A: We are not coaches. We are mentors and trainers. A mentor is someone who has walked the exact same path you're walking now and achieved a high level of success. A coach, on the other hand, does not have to have achieved results in your field or industry. This lack of sensitive wellness industry specific knowledge is perhaps one of the most common reasons most people have not achieved the results they desire.
Q: I've never heard of you. How can I be sure you know what you're talking about?
A: Each of us has a proven track record in building very successful wellness businesses, separately. Together, we have achieved the highest level of success in the wellness industry. We have built multiple 6 figure and 7 figure companies that account for us being within the top 1% of successful wellness leaders globally.

What do men’s wooden legs and women’s dressing tables have in common? Anglo-American residents of early American port cities amassed a variety of fine and decorative arts to assert their polite status. This talk will concentrate on the dressing furniture women used to prepare themselves for public scrutiny, the portraits artists painted of young women in courtship, and the wooden legs that men donned after the American Revolution. Together they reveal how material artifacts were vital for colonists’ transformation of themselves into polite people and for the creation of civil society in early America.
Speaker: Jennifer Van Horn, author of The Power of Objects in Eighteenth-Century British America and Assistant Professor of History and Art History at the University of Delaware

Come support veterans of all faiths and none and the American Humanist Association as we stand for a veterans’ memorial that truly honors every person who has fought and died for our country.
Five years ago, the American Humanist Association and three area residents filed a complaint against the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission challenging the constitutionality of a 40-foot-tall Latin cross that towers over the entrance to Bladensburg, MD. Now, the American Humanist Association will be defending the First Amendment before the Supreme Court.
Lower court rulings, Supreme Court precedent, and the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment recognize that using the symbol of a major religion to supposedly honor all veterans of all wars is not only unconstitutional, it fails to accomplish its very mission. Since the American Revolution, governments at every level built thousands of war memorials that are both constitutional and inclusive. These obelisks, pedestals, plaques and other memorials recognize the service of all veterans, regardless of their faith or lack thereof.
There will be music, signs, speakers, and more. Show your nation that you #HonorThemAll and protect the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment!
Please RSVP by registering here and be sure to share this event with friends and colleagues.

The debut of Hamilton: An American Musical in February 2015 created a mania for the show that has continued to sweep the country. It was the recipient of 11 Tony Awards, and won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, among other accolades. The exceptionally popular production, with its clever lyrics, hip-hop rhythms, and compelling story, has revived interest in the real lives and true stories of the historical figures that the production highlights.
Historian Richard J. Bell examines this musical phenomenon to reveal what it tells us about the marriage of history and show business, and what this amazing show gets right – and wrong – about Alexander Hamilton and the American Revolution. Hear Bell’s analysis of the ways the musical dramatizes and simplifies the complex events and stories on which the show is based. What does the show’s cultural impact and runaway success tell us about our shared stories and our nation as Americans? The evening includes a special performance by Jade Jones, singing “Satisfied” and “Burn” from the musical.
Richard J. Bell is a professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, who researches and writes about the history and culture of the United States between 1750 and 1877.
History Happy Hours include happy hour drinks and snacks. The series is sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.
*Admission is $20 at the door for all attendees
Tickets are $6 in advance (pick your seats) and go on sale Tuesday, January 29, at 10 am. Remaining tickets are free at the door, beginning at 6:30 pm on the day of the performance .
One of India’s most tireless advocates for achieving social change through the arts brings her latest creation to the Freer. In Colors of the Heart: Women’s Voices Silent No More, Mallika Sarabhai and the Darpana Performing Group utilize classical bharata natyam and modern dance, along with original music and lyrics, to explore women’s universal experiences. The piece investigates the violence and exploitation against women and the sisterhoods that empower women around the world.
For this production, Sarabhai joins forces with British Pakistani composer and lyricist Samia Malik. The Telegraph of India calls the performance “a unique blend of voices that speaks of all women, to all women,” while the Deccan Chronicle considers it “another show-stopper from Mallika.”
A multitalented artist and social force, Sarabhai is well known in India for her pioneering work on human rights and environmental awareness. She pursues these causes through dance productions, plays, writings, political activity, and hosting two long-running television programs. Her previous theatrical works include Shakti: The Power of Women, An Idea Named Meera, In Search of the Goddess, SvaKranti: The Revolution Within, and Sita’s Daughters.

We are living in a time of extreme and rapid innovation in technology, causing radical shifts in the workforce. Consequently, drastic changes must be made to how we educate students. Technologists, futurists, and business leaders alike are referring to this fundamental shift as the next Industrial Revolution. We call it the Age of Agility and we are calling for changes in education that match the forces of change within the modern economy.
Over the past year, America Succeeds and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation have led the Age of Agility National Tour. We brought together nearly 1000 stakeholders from across the country, including governors, state legislators, chambers of commerce, business leaders, educators, school administrators, and reform groups. Collectively, these stakeholders represent a national movement of changemakers ready to confront the challenges and champion the solutions needed to make a systems-level impact on education.
Samuel Tadros is a Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom, where he researches Middle Eastern politics, Islamist movements and religious freedom. He is also the co-host of "Sam & Ammar," a television program dedicated to covering Middle Eastern political and social developments from a classical liberal perspective that is broadcast throughout the Middle East by Al Hurra TV.
He asks: Does Egypt still have a place in the US grand strategy? For many pundits in Washington the answer is a resounding no. From every corner of the US foreign policy community frustration abounds with Egypt. If, however, the United States is ever capable of understanding its troublesome ally and salvaging what remains of the US-Egyptian alliance, it must tread carefully, following Fouad Ajami's steps, and approach the Egypt of reality, and not that of imagination. It must take a voyage to "a jaded country," as Ajami called it, and visit the land of sorrows.
Tadros is also the Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Middle Eastern Studies at the Hoover Institution, and a Professorial Lecturer at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) where he teaches Middle Eastern politics.
Prior to joining Hudson in 2011, Tadros was a Senior Partner at the Egyptian Union of Liberal Youth, an organization that aims to spread the ideas of classical liberalism in Egypt. He received his MA in Democracy and Governance from Georgetown University and his BA in Political Science from the American University in Cairo.
He is the author of Motherland Lost: The Egyptian and Coptic Quest for Modernity (2013) and Reflections on the Revolution in Egypt (2014) both by Hoover Press. His numerous articles have been published by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, The Atlantic, National Review, and World Affairs.
This discussion is a part of IWP's China series.
About the Book: Soon after the American Revolution, certain of the founders began to recognize the strategic significance of Asia and the Pacific and the vast material and cultural resources at stake there. Over the coming generations, the United States continued to ask how best to expand trade with the region and whether to partner with China, at the center of the continent, or Japan, looking toward the Pacific. Where should the United States draw its defensive line, and how should it export democratic principles? In a history that spans the eighteenth century to the present, By More Than Providence: Grand Strategy and American Power in the Asia Pacific Since 1783 follows the development of U.S. strategic thinking toward East Asia, identifying recurring themes in American statecraft that reflect the nation's political philosophy and material realities. Drawing on archives, interviews, and his own experience in the Pentagon and White House, Green finds one overarching concern driving U.S. policy toward East Asia: a fear that a rival power might use the Pacific to isolate and threaten the United States and prevent the ocean from becoming a conduit for the westward free flow of trade, values, and forward defense. By More Than Providence works through these problems from the perspective of history's major strategists and statesmen, from Thomas Jefferson to Alfred Thayer Mahan and Henry Kissinger. It records the fate of their ideas as they collided with the realities of the Far East and adds clarity to America's stakes in the region, especially when compared with those of Europe and the Middle East.
About the Author: Michael Jonathan Green is senior vice president for Asia and Japan Chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and director of Asian Studies at the Edmund A.

Before joining the NSC staff, he was a senior fellow for East Asian security at the Council on Foreign Relations, director of the Edwin O. Reischauer Center and the Foreign Policy Institute and assistant professor at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University, research staff member at the Institute for Defense Analyses, and senior adviser on Asia in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. He also worked in Japan on the staff of a member of the National Diet.
Dr. Green is also a nonresident fellow at the Lowy Institute in Sydney, Australia, a distinguished scholar at the Asia Pacific Institute in Tokyo, and professor by special appointment at Sophia University in Tokyo. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Strategy Group, the America Australia Leadership Dialogue, the advisory boards of Radio Free Asia and the Center for a New American Security, and the editorial boards of the Washington Quarterly and the Journal of Unification Studies in Korea.
