"This show is head over 20 million downloads. And by the way, that 20 million number was from last year in August. 20 million plus downloads. Exactly 2020 plus downloads. But here's the funny thing. I always love looking to see where the listeners come from. And we're going to be reading you guys some listener feedback and obviously there's going to be some embedded questions to that we're going to address. But really, our focus on today's show is to thank all of you. And thank all of you as gratuitously as we can on a podcast. So here are the top ten countries where we get most of our downloads. Number one is the United States. Number two is Canada. Nobody's should be surprised there and going on down the list. Julie, you can just rattle off these names. Sure, we've had France, the UK, Slovakia, New Zealand, Israel, Australia, Uganda and Belgium. Those are just the top ten. And I also want to give a special shout out to all of our service members because we know you're listening as well. Many of you are in Guam, we have coaching clients in Guam, for example. But you're all over the world, whether you're forward deployed or you're reservist, our hearts go out to you and thank you for your service. We have a lot of podcast listeners in countries, and this makes sense. We're real estate is done in a similar fashion in the United States. I don't know if you guys knew this, but in some countries, believe it or not, you don't need a real estate license. And there is no cooperative commission structure, and there really is not much of a structured residential real estate sales. Whatsoever. But we have a lot of listeners in countries where I'll say there's organized real estate. I don't know about Slovakia, to be honest with you. I'm not sure I'd have to look that up and see how that actually happened. But I know we have lots of clients, as you said in Australia, especially in Israel. Yeah, and also that list also mirrors where we have a lot of people in our EXP realty group as well. Indeed. So we have a lot of people that are podcast listeners and coaching clients and joining EXP royalty with our group and vice versa as well. So for all of you, we want to give you sincere thanks. And now what we're going to do is we're going to share with you some of the most recent I say the last maybe day or two comments and just different things we've picked up from the ether. And if you guys want to send us a comment a question, listener feedback or really any suggestions for shows. We always read those and comment and respond back. And we do it personally. I'm always shocked some of you guys think we delegate the most important stuff, which or turn it into a bot, which we're not. Exactly. I've had people so many times. Text me and then think it was a bot, and they're like trying to mess with a bot, you know, sometimes when you're messing with customer service. And so I'll just play back and play back with them, you know? But anyway, yeah, so that's how bored I am sometime, I guess. But it's for real. That's right. If you want a message us, you can do it over on Instagram, obviously it's at Tim and Julie Harris. And while you're over there, check out some of our personal family pictures. Some of you guys seem to really appreciate those. And you could also text us directly at 512-758-0206. That is my private cell phone number, 512-758-0206. And again, we're looking for any lesson or feedback, shows things where maybe you didn't we're an incomplete agreement or maybe things where you didn't completely understand the point we were trying to make. Any sorts of clarity moments that you're needing do ask us and we will help you again. You could text me at 512-758-0206 or just message us on Instagram. So Julie, we received quite a few really nice notes on a regular basis. Most of them are just like 5 or 6 words. And so what I did is I chose this morning a few comments recently where people took the time to kind of write in long form. And so those are some of those that we're going to read to you right now. And then again, a lot of questions embedded into these comments that we're also going to address. All right, so feel free to jump in and interrupt if you'd like to add commentary. And there's lots of emojis in here. So it might be a little bit clunky, but thank you to all of you in advanced and shout outs to all of you. Here's the first one from Charles foy the third that's fo Y for those of you who want to send him referrals. Hi, YouTube. My name is Charles and I am new 8 months in realtor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. I'm grateful to have met you when I did, even though I spent stupid money on viral leads. You don't know what you don't know. I started my premiere coaching and we'll be talking to my wife tonight to see about the further investment into our future as realtor with your help. I have a full time job so working my business at night and on the weekends primarily, as I'm still in pursuit of my first sale or rental. I just wanted to say hi and thank you for your honest straight talk. I am sold on expires in for sale by owners. I just need those contacts and scripts LOL. Thanks for the resources too. All the best Charles Floyd the third. Now, I followed up with him and this was his response. I just basically thanked him for the nice letter and asked his permission to read it on the podcast today. And so this was his response. As his follow-up response was, told my wife last night, I wish I met you all before I took the test so that when I got my license took the exam once, I would have gone straight into being coached by Tim and Julie Harris coaching. I would have not followed everyone else thinking that marketing and branding were important to me as a new realtor.

A highlight from Real Estate Agents: How To Sell At Least 23 Homes in 2023 (Part 3)

"And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Three two one we are back and this is part three. It's how to do at least 23 transactions in 2023. And today we're going to go 3.6 through probably 9. But I want to start out today, Julie by talking about something that we were talking about towards the end of yesterday's podcast that I had a few questions from and specifically people that were messaging us on Instagram. By the way, if you guys want to message us, definitely message us on Instagram. Or of course you can always text me as well. I know some of you think we're using some sort of AI text widget, but we're not. It's actually my cell phone. And that's 512-758-0206. And over on Instagram, it's just simply at Tim and Julie. Might be at Tim and Julie Harris. I don't remember, but you'll find us. So the question or rather, yeah, the questions were circling around the comment I was making yesterday or the, you know, I think I was trying to do a little bit of coaching on why direct proactively generation was always going to be more powerful than passively generation. And I don't think I made my point well enough. So I'm going to actually make it from a very, you know, from our business perspective, okay? Sure. So someone actually sent me a message, and it was thought through, and they were asking, well, Tim and Julie, you guys market on social, you guys have YouTube videos. You guys do all these other things. And you're telling us to de prioritize those things and make those things second tier efforts behind being a proactively generator at to which I said yes, correct. I'm glad you heard me. And they said, well, I'm confused. Explain to me why that's true. If you guys don't do it yourselves. And here's the answer. And that was a great question too. So there's 1.6 million members of the national association of vultures. Okay, now there's rumored to be over 2 million licensees. Now, every licensing is a member of the national association of vultures. For example, you don't have to be a commercial real estate agent to be a member of nar. Or frankly, we have a lot of international listeners in our international coaching clients. You don't have to be a member of nar for those. For those agents either. So let's just stick with the number 1.6 million. 1.6 million people might potentially buy coaching from Julie and I, right? Makes sense. I don't know who they are. They're not self identifying. They're not raising their hand and saying, I'm looking to buy coaching. There's no list like that. I can not buy a list of people that want to buy coaching. If I could, if we could, trust me, we would. It's just a list of 1.6 million people. Exactly. So Julie and I are basically every business on Planet Earth, except for you guys, are stuck with having to lead generate by all means necessary. And then obviously pre qualify and go through the wholesales funnel. You guys have the advantage because you already have viable lists of people who have their hands in their air right now saying yes, I want to sell my home. There's only a few other if you want to stretch the definition of the word business. There's only a few other businesses that are like that. For example, people that need to renew the rider registration every year. People that want to buy fuel, people that want to pay for utilities. People that want to, you know, you guys get the point. There's only a few business businesses with air quotes where you don't really have to look for the customers. They find you because they have to use you. And you guys are in the exact same situation. So if you are wanting to know why a lot of agents struggle needlessly in real estate, it's because they don't understand that there are free lead sources for people that already have pre qualified themselves and admitted and even as far as say, yes, I want to sell my house. And those are the people who used to be primarily focusing on. I hopefully that makes sense to you. Well, so let me just translate down to the nitty Gritty, right? So the only question in your mind as someone who is making your living from real estate and I would add some of our part timers who are trying to maybe replace their previous job or maybe this is a secondary job. But regardless, assuming that you are earning money from real estate or that's your intention, your primary question should be who needs my help and how can I most efficiently find them help them and be paid as a result. That is your thought tree. I don't understand, I never have understood to be honest. In real estate, people like to make things so damn complicated. I'm not talking about the transactions and the closing and all the Mickey Mouse. That's out of our control. The business model, right? The being of real estate agent is the most, the

"Three two one and we are back and we're talking about today and yesterday and tomorrow. 13 of the 13 most effective lead sources for you to do at least 23 transactions in 2023. And as many of you tens of thousands of you are longtime listeners to this podcast you know we are really going to focus in on how to generate listing leads, listings are where it's at listings or where it's always been at enlisting where our where it'll always be at with listings you get leverage with listings you actually can create a duplicate scalable business unlike working primarily with buyers. And if you're not sold on that yet, you will be after you listen to today's podcast. So without any further delay, Julie Harris, do you want to get to the first point? And again, these are effective lead sources. We're going to drill down. We're going to give you this list. You guys write these down. And then we'll leave breadcrumbs so you can do some further exploration so you can learn how to do this yourself. And by the way, do notice, sorry, Julie. Do notice that none of these lead sources will cost you any money, best part. That's right. And so the best lead source of all is a listing. And so that's when we're talking about how to get listings. Well, that was really, that's kind of the big, that's the spoiler. That's the summary. That's a summary. So if you don't want to listen anymore, that's it. Well, and we express that to you, hopefully, effectively yesterday. The reason the best lead source is always a listing is because what that listing you will simply follow our listing process, you will generate more listings from that listing, even if the market were to become a real stark buyer's market, then you can possibly imagine everything comes from listings. Hey, you want me to prove it to you? What would zolo be if they couldn't advertise listings? What would

A highlight from Starr Sackstein & Connie Hamilton: Disrupting the Homework Habit

"Hi, it's bachelor and welcome to overthrowing education where my guests and I explore what great education could and should be. On this episode, I'm continuing a topic that I think is on the front burner right now on educators minds and parents minds and students minds, which is homework. My guests in this episode are incredible educators, star sax scene and Connie Hamilton. Both who have been on my show before and they co authored the important book hacking homework. It's a great conversation that explores the homework issue gives practical ideas for how to do it right if you have to do it at all. And we also have a lot of fun. So you may ask, why am I doing another episode on homework when I just had a great episode with Elizabeth Jorgensen discussing homework. And if you haven't already heard it after you finish this one, listen to episode 86. So I'm focusing on homework again for a couple reasons. First of all, when I pose the question on Twitter for teachers and parents, how do you feel about homework? I got almost 500 answers along with a healthy discussion where people had a variety of opinions and, believe it or not, we're still respectful of each other for the most part. In addition to a lively Twitter discussion, one teacher, Alex giorgione, reached out to me with an amazing assignment he and his colleagues, Mike Reynolds, and Marianne Hilton, gave their sophomore world history in English two and junior U.S. history and English three classes when they were studying propaganda in the U.S.. It was called the war on homework. In this assignment, their students launched a full fledged propaganda campaign aimed at eliminating Homer within their high school. First, they had to analyze the history of yellow journalism and propaganda in America, and then they spent time researching just the topic of homework. The students were then tasked with identifying three things they had to find the impact homework has on students, the impact homework has on teachers and the efficacy or effectiveness of homework. And if you want to see the incredible results of these students from flagler Palm Coast high school and you should because they are really clever, you can find a link to them on the show notes and on my overthrowing education website. And if that wasn't enough, Alex was also kind enough to share the whole assignment, which you can find on the website as well. It's really great. I love the creativity. And now my conversation with Connie and Starr. Oh wait, wait, one more thing. At the very end of the episode is a little bonus. It's our very no holds bar gripe session about kinds of homework. We really don't like. It's kind of fun. Okay, there is one more thing that I did want to say before the interview, which is there are a lot of interesting sound effects in the background in this interview. So I don't know, you can play name that sound effect if you want. But just be aware that that's what's going to be happening throughout the interview. Okay, for real this time, here's my conversation with Connie and Starr. I have so been looking forward to talking to my amazing guests. Connie Hamilton and star sexting, who both been on the show before. In fact, this is star's fourth appearance on the show. So at this point, she's practically a co host. Connie and Starr are both well-known educational presenters who met when they co authored hacking homework. And they've since become dear Friends, which is so cool. Separately, they've published many other titles to offer resources to teachers and leaders in the area of assessment, instruction, and educator growth. Of course, we're going to talk about hacking homework since, you know, this whole episode is about homework, but you can hear more about their other books on previous episodes of overthrowing education, so check them out. Welcome, star and Connie. Thank you. Thank you so much. It's great to have you both back. Star do you feel like you're like, wait, it's once a month or something? It's starting to be like, no, I like it. I like our conversations. I like that you ask different, like we talk about different stuff, like even when we're talking assessment, it's different than what it is when I talk to most people who don't know me. So I appreciate that. I do too. I mean, we all could just talk and talk and talk about these things because we're all very passionate about it. And so now the thing that has been kind of buzzing around for me has been about homework and obviously that was a big thing for you all too. So I just kind of want to know what led you to the idea that homework was just becoming untenable and sort of needed hacking. I'll let you take that one coming. Well, I think star and I both share similar views on instruction and assessment and homework really hits on both of those things. Teachers often use homework to substitute for quality instruction and they often use homework in ways that don't align with the best assessment strategies. And so as we began having conversations about how homework is often miss use, we saw that our views aligned and thought that we could combine our thoughts and our efforts and decided to jump off the bridge here and challenge ourselves to write a book together, although it was a much bigger challenge for me because it was the first book that I wrote and star was already a very seasoned author. Wow. And since then, you've actually written more. So I have a good experience for you, obviously. It was a very good experience. She left out so many good parts about how that actually happened. Connie invited herself to my house after we decided that we were going to write this book. And we had not ever met in person only online. To make me sound so rude, I invited myself. Well, I mean, it was so awesome was you were like so confident that everything was like, it was amazing because you know me well enough to know now that I'm like super introverted. So thank God you are not as introverted as I am and you really took the initiative to get things rolling and it's one of the things I love most about you not to mention the look on your face when you got in the car when I picked you up at the airport and you were like, you don't look anything like what I was expecting. I was like okay. What were you expecting? That's what I want to know. Well, when you see star on social media and I think particularly I queued into the TED Talk that she did and she has just a very, I don't know like your stereotypical librarian type of look. When I think of if you were to cast someone in a movie as a librarian, that's what I expected. And she wasn't. She was in shorts and she was all tatted up and like typical New York fashion, her language fit right in with the geographic area. And I was like, wow, she's not as timid as I thought she was. That's great. Well, I am glad. Whatever it took, I'm glad it all happened because it's such an important book and it's such an important time for people to really be looking at it and cluing into it. Because I feel like there's a lot of assumptions that people have like administrators and parents and students and teachers about homework. So what would you say some of those assumptions are that really need to change? That homework is how we make kids accountable for learning. Yes. We both really hate that argument when people say we have to give kids homework because how else are we going to teach them to be responsible and accountable? I can't feel my blood

"Three, two, one, and we are back and oh my gosh, Julie. There's almost only 31 days left this year. I know. It's exciting, right? It's 2023. Yes. So that means everybody's got to not just get to work, but stay at work. We want you to have a great end to the year, of course, take some time for yourself and your family. But we also have been talking to you for probably 60 or 90 days about the fact that what you do now greatly impacts how you'll do next year because if you take too much time off and then you have to get ready to get started to relaunch again. You haven't done your business plan yet. You're not really sure, but you'll just start next year. Well, that's going to actually set you back, not set you forward. That's right. And if you have not yet completed your real estate treasure map, that's your 2023. They'll end up like business in life plan. Well, we've made it easy for you. And I know a lot of you are looking for that information because you don't want to roll into the new year. Again, I can hardly believe we're saying that. I know. But you don't want to roll in the new year without actually having a plant. Well, guess what? We've got it waiting for you. And we also, as a bonus, you get to join premiere coaching for free, which is something else that all of you should be doing. We surveyed some of our new members and since June, we've had over a thousand of you joined premiere coaching and I know since June probably, I would say a vast majority of the agents joining have been selling because we surveyed you guys after you've joined or selling between 15 and 30 houses per year and the number one thing that you're looking for is not gimmicks is not how to social media this that and the other TikTok videos. The number one thing you guys are looking for are scripts and skills. And I was actually delighted to see that because it tells me that frankly the podcast listeners, all of you and if you're watching us on YouTube, you guys are tuned into the frequency that you need to be for this new year because it's less about rah rah and narcissism and look at me and here's my purple Lamborghini and it's more about actually knowing how to solve people's problems. So I salute all of you. We have made premiere coaching for free. So you can join right now and you can get a head start on next year to simply

"Yes. So our little lovely daughter Zoe grace Harris, who, by the way, did you see that picture I put of us on Instagram? Oh, you mean the one where she was on the we call it the hike, but I don't know what she's nicknamed it. Forced hiking or exactly. Well, every single every single day, she is responsible for doing ten things and having a checklist of the ten things she's supposed to do. Going on a little better than two mile walk with Julie and I is one of them. Well, it really is a hike because the road's here, nothing is flat. In the next thing is that she's going to be responsible for cleaning her room. She has to do some math problems. She has to do just things to really make it so she doesn't go to pot during the summer, right? 'cause she's rolling into third grade. We need a smart person. As our kid, you know? And it takes a lot of work. That's right. We don't want her to slide backwards. One of her teachers said that if you just let him run rampant and we want her to have fun, of course, it's the summer. But her teacher said that if you don't do any of the academic work that they literally will lose one to two grades when they enter back in and then they have to relearn everything. And then I have to restart and they lose a lot of time that way. So how is this story related to today's topic, which is your real estate agent's daily success schedule while you're about to learn. So how do I keep Zoey and how did Julie and I keep Zoe motivated enough to want to do what she doesn't want to do when she doesn't want to do it at the highest level? Well, I went to YouTube and I found a whole series of videos that are about feral humans. I did. The guys should do this too. Go to YouTube and put in feral humans or feral children or whatever. And there are tons you will be shocked the number of videos that were stories about people that were essentially went feral. And usually it's kids. They were abandoned somehow, and they lived in a jungle. Literally raised by wolves, some of them. Well, yeah, literally raised by wolves. A lot of them that's actually the most common theme is they're raised by wolves. And they were walking on all fours, they growl and they snarled. They turned into wolves. And it actually is an interesting, this is kind of interesting fact. If you take a normal barnyard pig and you let the peg go wild within, like one year, the pig starts to grow tusks starts to change color, starts to grow long brown hair. Well, you know, it stands to reason that it wouldn't take too long for humans to go feral as well. And really the thing that keeps a human from going for our oldest society and having a schedule and having all the lacing it in there guys, so I showed zelie these feral human videos and it turns out, wait for it, wait for it. A lot of these feral humans are right in Appalachia. Where we live, right? Little cabin is in and around on this national park. Where is this what is it called? Not in Howard national park. Yeah, so part of the Smoky Mountains. So we were explaining to Zoe that essentially, if she doesn't do her ten things every single weekday, we do give her a break on the weekends that she will most likely go feral and she doesn't want to go furl 'cause she likes her iPad. That's right. And they don't have iPads when you're living in the Woods with the bears. They do not. And also that she has to earn to do what she wants to do. She has to do what she doesn't want to do. Repetitively, at a high level so she can move forward. But that also takes me to the fact that when you look at a kid's, when we are children, you know, you would go to school, you'd be there by 8 o'clock, and you wouldn't be done by 3 o'clock. And when you were in school for 8 hours or whatever it was, you were doing usually 5 to maybe 8 different things. Yes. And distinct things. They weren't barely, you know, you go to Spanish, then you go to math, and then you go to gym, and then you go to this, the other thing. And it's fascinating how kids are raised or essentially kids are trained to be able to do a lot of diverse things every single day and be on a very tight schedule. And as soon as now, that takes a lot of people like that. A lot of people will find that type of schedule and that repetitious sort of predictability. Right, a lot of people like that. Now, other people, most people are getting into real estate, are the ones that hated it. Frankly. We've noticed that common occurrence in real estate is a lot of folks that get their licenses are the people that do not want to have any sort of discipline accountability schedule or anybody asking them anything that's going to resemble a schedule. That will always result in failure. Having that mindset and that approach will result in people failing out of real estate because life requires necessitates a schedule and necessitates the building of certain skills and talents in doing what you don't want to do when you don't want to do it at the highest level. And that's what this ideal schedule that we're going to share with you today is all about. And I'm telling you the story about our daughter, Zoe, and her school schedule, to remind all of you that every single one of you at one point in your lives granted

"Podcast listing devices. And if you've not yet done so please do consider giving us a 5 star review in also do subscribe to our YouTube channel. We're putting all these podcasts up on YouTube as well. I know a lot of you would like to have YouTube growing in the background just listening to the podcast and that's a really great. So before we get to point number 6, I'm going to share with you guys something I'm working on oh well Julie and I have been working on together. But I spent probably two hours on it together today rather is understanding how to explain to all of you what the metaverse is and how it's going to relate to the real estate industry. And I have to tell you it has been an absolute mind bender experience trying to not just understand it myself, but try to make it so that it's understandable by other people. That's really the art and science of doing really good podcast. It's taking really kind of confusing topics and you may be sometimes having two competing thoughts in your head at the same time and being able to fairly fairly present both of them without being too biased one way or the other. Definitely, especially something like this that's a bit off the menu and I've been reading your notes. And it's like each point is like, huh? Really? That's interesting. Let me go back and read that again. Well, you know what's when I was writing the notes, I think it's point number 7. We're going to start on these metaverse, the metaverse stuff tomorrow. I think it was point number 7. That it was all of a sudden I had this remember, hey buddy, want to buy, you want to buy the Brooklyn Bridge? I know. I had that same thought, too. If you like this, I've got some land in Florida. Exactly. Now some of you, this is I have no idea what we're talking about. Well, I don't know that people even still understand that. But the gist of it was supposedly this story is something like the 1920s or 1930s or something like that or 40s, who knows. But there was somebody that was and eventually got caught, was essentially selling and reselling the Brooklyn Bridge, but not for real. He was just essentially a con man that was selling it to other people. And the story goes that the police would be on the bridge seeing the supposed new owners surveying where they were going to put up tolls so they can start monetizing their new investment that Brooklyn Bridge and evidently this guy was so successful at this that he sold the Brooklyn Bridge and inflation adjusted what it meant to tens of millions of dollars. So as I was going through these points. Good salesperson, though. Well, I guess. But as I was going through these points and I was writing all this down, especially exploring how virtual real estate transactions are happening and how there's virtual architects and others like Ralph Lauren just basically got in the metaverse just writing all this down and studying all of this. It really does feel like there's somebody on my shoulder going hey buddy, want to buy the Brooklyn Bridge. But I believe this. Despite that, I think we're going to present to you guys a fairly fair and balanced approach to understanding the metaverse because it is here. And Julie and I just returned from an EXP event and I can tell you right now that if there's going to be a real estate brokerage that is going to be ahead of the curve and getting onto the metaverse because it is real, despite the fact that at my age, it's sort of hard to wrap your mind around it at 50, but the reality of it is that it is going to happen. It is real. I look at our daughter Zoe. No, she's in second grade. And I see her playing roadblocks and you guys who have little blocks. Whatever. It's a stupidest game ever. That's what it is. And the graphics are terrible. Everything about it is just awful, but it is so immersive and addictive, that she just, you know, we have to essentially hide our iPad so she doesn't play it all the time. And so when I see that and I'm not a gamer, neither is Julie, but when I see her playing that, it makes me realize this whole metaverse thing, especially considering the technology that's coming. Again, I don't want to give you guys too much information that show starts tomorrow. But when we have, again, studying all of this, I can completely understand, assuming a technology happens as fast as what people are saying it's going to happen. If you could essentially have a one for one experience, where it's distinguishable, but virtually not distinguishable once you put on your VR headset, once you put on your full body haptic suit, you're going to be able to feel wind on blowing on you.

Destenie Nock of Carnegie Mellon University on Fixing Energy Poverty

"My research group investigates how energy poverty will be affected by energy transitions an creates methods for identifying who is experiencing energy poverty when people hear the word poverty they usually think of people who have trouble affording their basic needs and the energy space most people assume in individuals energy port if they spend more than six percent of their income meeting their energy needs. The problem is that this assumes everyone is spending all the money. They need to keep their house at a comfortable temperature cook and use all of the other electricity appliances. We have become dependent on this misses. The people who use space heaters and their ovens to heat their homes due to high natural gas and oil prices and what about the people who keep their houses really hot in the summer because they cannot afford electricity in my research group we have created an energy poverty metric called the energy equity gap which identifies the households that are cutting their electricity consumption to reduce their financial burden. The energy equity gap is based on the difference in outdoor temperatures which members of different income groups are likely to start using their a c. We find that. The energy equity gap between low in high income groups ranges from four point seven degrees fahrenheit to seven point five degrees fahrenheit meaning on average low income households. Wait seven degrees longer to turn. On their ac units. Some households will even wait until it is above eighty degrees. This puts them at risk of heat. Stroke and heat. Exhaustion foregoing air-conditioning also increases the humidity in the house meaning the occupants will be at greater risk from mold asthma and allergens. We hope this new dimension of energy poverty will be used in addition to traditional income based energy poverty metrics to reduce the number of people suffering from energy poverty.

Why Culturally Relevant Teaching Is Important

"To this episode. Let's dive right into it. So one of the think about culturally responsive teaching. I define. It is being attuned and acknowledging students diverse backgrounds. Educating them with the lens that there heritage background and cultural assets are advantages and can enhance their education and having a worked in urban schools. I see that students already possess a genius within them because of their diverse backgrounds and because of the cultural assets that they bring to the classroom and it is up to me to us as the teacher or teachers to facilitate a nurture this genius within the children that we teach and i was made aware of this time and time again in my teaching i saw a second grade poetry lesson using a poem by langston us and the students were able to dissect and find hidden meaning within this boy without a lot of prompting. It'd be difficult for the students to have this kind of insight to have this kind of critical thinking but they were able to dissect it to break it down honest and understand it without me. Having to prompt them and realize how much of a genius students have when they can bring their backgrounds cultural assets their experiences to the classroom culturally responsive

"I was trying to think about where to start. This and i think good place to start is the dark side of gratitude. What does that expression mean to you. And where does it come from i. It's funny. I'm definitely known for leading with gratitude. So it's an ironic statement from someone like me. But i remember when my mom came to me when i was nine years old and said that's it i'm done. We're leaving and what she meant was we. Were leaving my dad. My dad was an is a very good man but at the time was an alcoholic and he had a wife and three daughters at home nine. Mi six and three. My two sisters and i had been in multiple car accidents with him drunk driving. By the time. I was nine. So i remember when my mom came to me and said we were leaving. I did not cry. I did not get upset. I looked at her at the age of nine and said what took you so long and it was because i was close enough to the bad to realize that even a scary decision was a better one than the alternative which was staying but as i got older and i talked to my mom more about that decision which turned out great for everyone. I asked her again. What took you so long. Because she started sharing with me how bad it was for. How long and and what it boiled down to was the dark side of gratitude that she was so grateful that she had a nice house and she was so grateful that we had gifts for the holidays and she was told by her family. And my father's family and her friends who were very poor much more so than us. We would be considered middle class at that stage that she was lucky to have all these things that she had and that that was a the alcoholism and the things that came along with it were a small price to pay for those other what appeared to be fortunes

"Imagine if you could add years to your life and improve your chances of not dying from heart disease imagine if it only took one small change but first why is heart. Disease important is the cause of nearly eighteen million lives lost each year. The sad fact is that a large number of these deaths are preventable. Why because the development of the majority of risk factors for heart disease can be avoided. The good news is that we can reduce risk for heart disease through our diet. We have found that eating one cup per day or vegetables like lettuce. Beetroot and spinach can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease. We analyze data from over fifty. Three thousand participants of the danish died cancer and health. Study over a twenty three year period. We evaluated the died followed by participants focusing on vegetable nitrate intake against health outcomes related to the hot. We found that participants who followed a nitrate rich vegetable diet. Had about a two and a half millimeter. Mercury lower systolic blood pressure and a twelve to twenty six percent lower risk of heart disease compared to participants consuming less nitrate rich vegetables and other key finding was at one cup of leafy green vegetables was enough to reach the optimal levels of nitrate calculated at fifty nine milligrams per day. We did not see for the benefits in people who ate higher levels of nitrate rich vegetables. So eating just one cup of knighthood rich vegetables can therefore have a valuable impact on the health of your heart

Why Do We Make Assumptions?

"Welcome to the mind. Set for life podcast. Today this is bethany hansen. And i am so glad you are here. We're gonna talk about assumptions today. Have you ever had someone really let you down or expect something of you that you just had no idea about likely that was because a there was poor communication but the there were some assumptions. Either you had an assumption about the other person or they had an assumption about you and that wasn't communicated enough. I've talked for a few weeks now on the mind set for life. Podcast about the ladder of inference. I've never mentioned the letter of inference. So if you listened to episodes seventy eight and seventy nine you're not gonna hear me mention it but that is exactly what i'm talking about. The ladder of inference is this tool. That really tells us what we are thinking. It's interesting because when we think in sort of these steps are brain just flies through it. We don't even realize we're doing it. But the ladder of inference gives us sort of a structure to which we can then slow down think about it and realize where we went wrong in our thinking or where someone else went wrong in their thinking at where we need to fill in the blanks. The crazy thing is a lot of the thoughts in our own ladder of inference. Come from our younger life like our childhood or our youth. We have some experiences as we're growing up or as were young in the world and we draw a conclusion based on those experiences

Improve Traffic Flow in Cities by Banning Left Turns

"Intersections. Dangerous because they are where cars often moving very fast than in different directions must cross paths when drivers make left turns. They must cross oncoming traffic which makes intersections much more complicated one way to accommodate turns is to have vehicles wait until a gap appears in oncoming traffic. However this can be dangerous relies entirely on the driver to make the left turn safely another way to allow left hand. Turns you stop oncoming traffic and give cars turning left their own green arrow. This is safer but it shuts down the entire intersection to let left turning vehicles go which slows traffic instead. A simpler solution might be best. Restrict left hand turns in busy cities. This would be safer and allow the intersection to serve more cars. There's a downside. Eliminating left turns would require some vehicles to travel longer distances however eliminating left turns on grid like street networks would on average require people to drive only one additional block. This would be more than offset by the smoother traffic flow. Getting rid of left turns may be difficult to implement across an entire city but they might not need to be left turn. Restrictions are most effective at busier intersections in the centers of towns or cities than it less busy intersections. Farther away from the town center. This is because the busier. The intersection the more people benefit from smoother traffic flow the central intersections also tend to have alternative routes available than minimize any additional distance travel due to the restrictions. So the next time you're sitting in traffic stuck behind someone waiting to make a left turn know that your frustration is justified. There's a better way in this case. The answer is simple. Get rid of the left turn.

Caitlin Clark on Chocolate Flavor Through Fermentation

"Are you a chocolate lover. Even true chocoholics might not know what their favorite treat has. In common with. Yogurt cheese and wine it's flavors come from fermentation fermentation is the process of improving food through the controlled activity of microbes. The food you know as chocolate starts its life. As the seeds of football shaped fruit farmers scoop out the seeds and pulp into piles or boxes. The seeds are now called. Ca- cow beans they ferment. For about a week before they're dried roasted and crushed with sugar until smooth and ready to eat. Let's go back to that. Fermentation step ca cow from imitation as a multi stage process. The first stage involves east just like the yeast and your beer. Yeast and a fermentation produces alcohol by digesting the sugary pulp around the beans as the pull breaks down. Oxygen sleeps in an oxygen loving bacteria takeover the bacteria generate acidic acid from the alcohol that the produced acetic acid causes biochemical changes as it soaks into the beans and that has a major impact on flavor finally as the acid slowly evaporates and the sugars are all used up. Spore forming organisms begin to grow cows a wild fermentation from his rely on natural microbes in their environment to create unique local flavors. This phenomenon is known as tear warr makers of gourmet small batch chocolate hand select cacao beans based on their distinctive terroir to produce chocolate with an impressive range of flavor nuances for example one bar maybe reminiscent of raspberries. While another has notes of toffee and raisins yet. In both cases the bars contain nothing except cacao beans and sugar these impressive flavor differences are due almost entirely to the power of microbes
