    Students of history often think of 1492 as the year that Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue.  However, for observers living in 1492, Columbus’ first voyage did not even make the evening news.  The major event of that year was the defeat of Muslim Granada by the Kingdom of Castile and the culmination of the Reconquista of the Iberian Peninsula by Christian Polities.  This lecture will outline the history of the Iberian Peninsula from the Kingdom of the Visigoths, through the Muslim Caliphate, to the Reconquista, and finally to the ascent of Castile as the dominant polity, culture, and linguistic group in Iberia.   The Reconquista provided the Castilians with the military experience to dominate the New World Empires, and the social experience in their relationships with Muslims and Jews as ‘the Other’ to set the stage for the Castilians’ treatment of the indigenous peoples of the New World.   The marital diplomacy in Europe during this period was also instrumental in determining the directions that the Iberian and other European Polities would follow in the decades following 1492.

    We annually celebrate October 12 as Columbus’ discovery of the New World.  However, this event in 1492 was more than the European Contact with the New World.   In effect, this event launched a re-creation of the New World as well as the transformation of the Old World as the exchange of flora, fauna, minerals, culture, and technology between the continents served to change the world as we knew it.  This is known as The Columbian Exchange.   Can you imagine Italian Food without tomatoes, or the Industrial Revolution without the potato, or not having corn as a staple throughout the world?   In this lecture, we will explore the changes in the New World brought on by European Contact and the transformative effects of that contact in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

    When incapacity or death strikes it’s too late for your kids / heirs to ask questions. It’s also too late to see if there are errors or gaps in your planning.  In this class I will be guiding you through the process for setting up a 1-page instruction sheet for your heirs.  You will also be creating a binder that contains the essential items your heirs will need.  As you are guided through the worksheet, we will be talking about the tax and financial repercussions that your heirs will be dealing with. I am particularly passionate about this exercise after my own father passed way.   He had a tax practice, my brother is a CPA, I am a CFP, and the trust planning was in place. And yet, there were a few areas that we overlooked and that sent us to probate and triggered unnecessary taxes.  I want to help you avoid this and that’s why I created this process.  This will be a hands-on working and learning environment. Please register early so materials can be sent to you beforehand. You will need to either print them out or ask for a mailed copy. Barbara Norman, CFP®, ChFC® CDFA® is the CEO of Sage Path Solutions,  the Founder of The Women’s Financial Academy – a CA non-profit organization dedicated to education, and a member of Ed Slott’s Master Elite IRA Advisor program.    Barbara has a tax background and has served in the financial services industry since 1986.

In this lecture, we will look at the source of beliefs, how they are passed on from generation to generation, how they function as a filtering system to our awareness and how they may be changed. The special case of “false” beliefs will be examined as well as the tragic consequences that they have produced. Finally, we will look at what happens when beliefs are disconfirmed and how the mind handles that.

    Prior to the Covid19 outbreak, local brick and mortar commerce was suffering. The global economy rendered online shopping as desirable, economically viable and offered a greater array of products. Corporate mergers, a preponderance of low wage workers in retail and production widened an economic wedge between fulfillment center shopping and in-perrson purchasing. This has been exacerbated prodigiously by the Covid lockdown. Obstacles in global supply chains and production-on-demand models precluded access to basic necessities. The ‘fear’ of shopping pushed the global population to purchasing and delivery apps. Small and large business models failed to prepare for the vagaries of an instantaneous global shutdown. While disaster capitalism works for natural disasters, global shutdowns have no prior example. This class outlines which changes will become permanent and who the winners and losers will be.

    In order to counter the transmission of COVID-19, we are being asked to social-distance and self-quarantine. But then, people wind up feeling isolated and lonely. To counteract these feelings, people are choosing from three alternative strategies: (1) turning to faith and religion for comfort; (2) simple denial and defiance, which has psychophysical roots in ”psychic numbing”; and (3) a cautious compliance. Some of these have positive consequences, but some may have unanticipated negative consequences. We will explore this range of responses from a mental health perspective,
