Have you checked out the latests podcast? If not, you may have missed this…
I recently interviewed Walt Mueller (from CPYU) on the show. We talked youth culture, The VMAs, and more. It was a great conversation. During our time together Walt offered EVERY listener to the podcast a FREE, ONE YEAR subscription to CPYU’s Parent Page! This resource is $5.00 monthly ($60 yearly), but you can get it for FREE from This Week in Youth Ministry. You must catch the show before the last day of September though, the coupon code we provide you with on the show expires then!
You can listen to the podcast [here] or on iTunes [here].
Also, we’re giving away an Apple Watch! That’s right. We’re giving away an Apple Watch with our friends @LeaderTreks. You only have 2 days left to enter! [Enter here now]
This Week in Youth Ministry Podcast is giving away a Nabu X! It’s one of the latest products from Razer and is part fitness monitor and part social activity monitor in one piece of wearable tech. Go here to [enter] now.
As an fitness monitor, the Nabu X tracks steps, calories, distance and sleep along with its companion app for iOS and Android (Windows soon to come). One nifty feature with its sleep tracking is that you can set the band to either automatically go into sleep mode, or wait for you to manually enter sleep mode.
Compared with the original Nabu smartband, the NabuX is part social activity monitor, functioning with a multicolored light system, to notify you of texts, phone calls, and emails. The LED lights can be customized to illuminate for specific notifications, and they light up to show you your daily step goal percentages too! In addition to these (and many other features), the NabuX battery life is good for 5-7 days and is water resistant up to 1m.
And you can WIN one for FREE from the Podcast. Just simply go here to [enter]. Refer a friend and get 5 more entries = 5 more chances to win! Hurry, this contest goes away on July 8th. Enter [here] now! And thanks for listening to #ThisWeekinYM!
Chances are, you’ve already been to Starbucks today or plan to visit later. This brand has become a global powerhouse and doesn’t plan to curtail its plans to expand moving forward. I love my cup of Joe too (preferably Iced, thank you), but these are 10 mind-blowing facts about the bean giant that I’ll bet you didn’t know:
1. There are more than 87,000 possible drink combinations at Starbucks.
2. A grande coffee has 330 milligrams of caffeine, more than four times the amount of caffeine found in a Red Bull.
3. Starbucks uses 4 billion paper cups per year.
4. The company earned more than $1.25 billion in profit last year, enough to buy every American 2 cups of coffee.
5. Starbucks has grown an average of 2 stores every day for the last 27 years.
6. There are plans to open over 1,000 new stores in China in the next year alone.
7. The coffee giant spends more in employee health care than coffee beans each year.
8. The most loyal 20% of Starbucks customers visit the store at least 16 times monthly.
9. Sante Fe Springs, CA has the most Starbucks stores in a 25-mile radius with 560 stores!
10. In the week leading up to Christmas 2013, the company sold more than 2 million gift cards every single day.
