186 I Always Wanted to be a Fireman – So I went to Melbourne Australia to find Brent Clayton to Show me How

Thanks for listening, I’m David yakir and you know I’ve been thinking about the time when I was young and wanted to be a fireman. It followed me one way or another throughout my life. Those stories later. But now I had a chance to speak to a real fireman albeit from Melbourne Australia and how he’s used his experience to coach others. Warning: For the USA audience, listen carefully – accent coming your way. So that’s what we’ll yak about today.

About The Career Project

At The Career Project, we believe that choosing a career or changing career is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. And we know from experience that you can’t figure it out by sitting at home researching careers online and trawling job search sites.

To make an informed career decision we believe you should get out of the house and experience it in the real world!  This means talking to industry insiders face-to-face so you can really begin to understand whether your career idea is aligned with your personality, strengths and values.  Industry insiders are also vital to providing you with accurate and timely information in regard to how easy or difficult it is to secure employment in that field, and what you can do to increase your opportunities.

The Career Project will help you identify an Industry Mentor in your area of interest who is willing to share their knowledge at an Informational Interview or Job Shadow Opportunity. Our mentors are committed to helping you make a better career decision by providing you with insights into the role, the industry and the work environment.  This is important information that simply cannot be obtained via online research or by attending University Open Days and Career Expos.

The experience with a mentor will validate and test your ideas to see whether your potential career choice is going to suit YOU. This will potentially save you unnecessary expenses such as study fees, business set-up costs and much more if you choose a career that isn’t the right fit.

128 My young porn story, Cheers to Local Radio and a Wall Street Journal tory that pissed me off

So I’ve been thinking about the new laws being proposed in the UK. You see, you now have to be 18 years old and get a pass with a code to get online and watch Porn. It reminded me of the how I bought porn when I was young. Imagine how different today is. Porn is just an accepted part of being a teenager. Also, I go on a Wall Street Journal rant about how the more senior of should behave and change our appearance to keep our job. And a shout out to local radio.

Yak About Tech “Top 10 Best Smart Home Tech by app-geek.com and Yak n Chat with TaniaTop 10 Best Smart Home Tech – January 2017


appy-geek.comJanuary 17, 2017 08:19 AM. Best Home Tech
The home keeps getting smarter and smarter. There are more and more appliances coming out with a brain these days, and it’s hard to determine which products are worth picking up. We’ve rounded out a list of ten great smart home tech that you can pick up and get your smart home started. Some of these products are small and inexpensive, while others are not.

Amazon Echo

The majority of the items on this list work with Alexa, so you’ll want to pick up an Amazon Echo so you can use that functionality. The Amazon Echo is a great speaker, but most people buy it for the Alexa functionality. Allowing you to control your smart home, ask it simple questions like “How did the Cowboys do this weekend?” and so much more.

Buy the Amazon Echo

Ring Video Doorbell Pro

Ever wondered who was at your door, without giving away the fact that you are actually home? Well the Ring Video Doorbell Pro fixes that. It’s a doorbell that has a video camera built in. This doorbell can be connected to your phone or tablet using Ring’s own app, and you can actually talk to the person at the door, through your phone. Really great for telling the FedEx person where to leave your package if you aren’t home.

Buy the Ring Video Doorbell Pro

Ecobee3 Thermostat with Sensor

You’ve probably heard about the Nest Learning Thermostat, but what about Ecobee3? It offers basically all of the same functionality. The ability to control your thermostat when you aren’t home, schedule when to change the temperature and so forth. It is also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa. Allowing you to use your voice to control your thermostat, instead of needing to get up and go change the dial.

Buy the Ecobee3 Thermostat with Sensor

TP-Link Smart LED Light Bulb

One of the cheapest smart light bulbs on the market, and that’s largely due to the fact that these do not require a hub, and they only do white, and not different colors. The TP-Link Smart LED Light Bulb can be controlled from an app on your phone (both iOS and Android are supported), and it also works with Alexa. So you can tell Alexa to turn your lights on or off in a certain room, or the entire house.

Nest Cam Outdoor Security Camera

It’s definitely a good idea to keep an eye on your home, and Nest’s new outdoor camera is a great option. It allows you to keep track of what is going on around your house, without getting off the couch, or even being home. Nest allows you to watch a live feed of the camera from your smartphone, as well as watching what happened a few hours ago, or even a few days ago.

Neato Botvac Connected

There are loads of other great robot vacuums out there (some of which are even cheaper than this), but this is currently the only one that actually works with Alexa. Yes, that means you can tell Alexa to clean your home. That’s pretty sweet right? The Neato Botvac Connected does have its own app, so you can schedule a specific time of the day for it to clean your home, perhaps when you are away at work.

Buy the Neato Botvac Connected

Wemo Mini Smart Plug

Like with the Neato Botvac Connected, there are also loads of other smart plugs out there, but what sets this one apart is the fact that it is much slimmer. While the others also cover up the second outlet, this one does not. So you can actually have two of these on one outlet. Wemo does have an app so you can control whatever is plugged into this smart plug, doing simple things like turning it on or off.

Buy the Wemo Mini Smart Plug

Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit

Philips Hue is one of the best lighting systems out there right now. However it isn’t cheap, and it does need a bridge or a hub, to get started. Which is why you need this starter kit. It brings you the hub along with three light bulbs. Philips Hue does work with Alexa, and is coming soon to Google Assistant. There is also an app that you can use to control all of your lights in your home.

Buy the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit

August Smart Lock

This smart lock from August is pretty popular due to the fact that it looks like a regular lock on the outside, but you can actually unlock your home using your smartphone. It connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth to authenticate your device and then unlock the door. It does also have a guest access mode. So you can give your babysitter or house-sitter access to your home for a specified amount of time or number of days. Then the key is removed and gone forever.

Buy the August Smart Lock

Amazon Fire TV Stick

So this isn’t necessary a “smart home” product, but it made the list because it has Alexa, and allows you to control your smart home. The Amazon Fire TV Stick does everything you’d expect a streaming TV stick to do, but it also has Alexa. So you can ask Alexa for the weather, ask her to turn on the lights and so much more.

YAK n CHAT with Tania and David

We didn’t plan it, but it happened. The “Yak n Chat” segment with Tania and I took over the entire show. We chatted, had some fun. Tania tried out a few jingles for “Yak n Chat.” But then we got down to the reason we have these conversations – Tania’s very moving stories about her devotion to and chronicling of the exploits of our first responders. So listen in as we Yak About Hero’s
