"ASL we had we would have we would have families that would come for coats for kids and the parent and the child in a one or the other would be definitely would be able to sign with each other or perhaps everyone in the family was staff and we struggled we did not have and reporters that new ASL and so it's something that we certainly considered our angel tree program we had a family who received a gift card and because of the language barrier we couldn't explain what a gift card was they did not understand the concept was a real struggle so so there are things that we kind of take for granted and and now for non profits we really have to consider that we have to make sure we're serving the population while I'm talking right now to Tiffany Hanson and Rebecca Bahan they're both with Lou not language services and for people who are listening right now if your company or your nonprofit or your school or you know if they need some help how do they get a hold of you how do they how do they reach out sure well we have a fabulous website that they can always go to a lot of people like to start their searches their as W. W. W. dot Luna three sixty dot com and they can also contact our office and reach out to us through the phone we get faxes we get a lot of we get requests Irene carrier pigeon every we take it however they come to us well and you both have a lot of experience going to events and working with different companies and such I want you to have a chance to share a story about personally what for you it was maybe one of the most rewarding experiences are memorable experiences that you had working for Linda sold many I'm actually this memorable story didn't happen at Luna happened in my early years as an interpreter and I worked really closely in the new castle school system with a high school student and I went to all of our classes with her and and work with her every day and I have probably worked with her for two years or so and I have just made up no pun intended but an offhand comment about someone a kid for being in the class and making a sound and she was horrified the deaf student I was working with was absolutely horrified to learn that when she burped it made a sound hi just the realization on her face I just was was priceless and seven that started a whole other kind of conversation does this make a sound this is make a sound so lots of things make the sounds that we may not know me we'll have that for you I think for me it's been really just understanding chest how many places this can affect people in working on some of these really interesting initiatives and community collaboration projects I'm one of the things that I've been working on this year it's working a lot more closely with the I. P. S. they have a new comer program which is essentially a school that's very specifically for kiddos who are new to the country they've been in the country for less than a year so they give them a safe place over on the west side at their new comer academy where they can be around other students that are global students that are overcoming a language barrier in addition to understanding the different systems of how things work but they also provide these amazing wraparound services to the family as a whole because I PS really understands that the whole family needs to try for the students to be able to thrive and so they have like in that in that same location they have a look clothing closet where people can come and get not just uniforms for their kids that have been donated but if you need a new outfit to go for a job interview or just clothing to get yourself established they have a small food pantry there that they regularly try to take two nations foreign restock sometimes they'll even get small pieces of furniture to offer people as their you know acclimating to their new home so they really take a look at the family unit as a whole and for me on the other side of that the thing that I'm working with them on is trying to help some of those family members to connect with job opportunities that are going to be really beneficial to them and employers that are welcoming some of these folks with open arms and they're already on either working on it or set up to be able to overcome that language barrier and really increase these really resilient amazing people into their work places well I'm having worked with these different companies and sites for people who you know may never crossed paths with you what kind of advice would you give them to make it more comfortable and make it a little bit easier for people when they are running into those language barriers well all star obviously with the deaf community and that's a different kind of language barrier than the spoken language side I look them in the eye the friendly they may or may not read lips yet so you can't make that assumption write something down on a piece of paper gesture even if you know and a little bit of fine you can use as you can no hello are a lot of people can spell things and so any any of time to really to want to communicate them is it just goes a really long way and have a for spoken languages so a couple of things that we suggest we're so organizations that people can think about this in general when I think about as bad as it is is Google translate if you're literally died helped him where and you run into a person and you don't know what to DO right trying to figure out what language they speak just said facilitate really basic communication please understand that Google translate is not an.
Google's Pixel 3a is Boringly Good, Which is Fine
"Let's talk three weeks with the pixel three Andrew. He wrote an editorial came up on the site today and this, this got me right in the gut because I disagree, I disagree with this so bad. I definitely did ask you to proofread this. Title time as possible the review rebuttal. Okay. So this title is the pixel three is just a great four hundred dollar phone, nothing more. And that's okay, my God. So many feelings about this. Walk us through why you feel this way because it's a good. It's a very convincing aditorial and I agree with some of it, but I want to hear your take people rightfully I guess, because it was kind of the, the talk of Google, yo with really. I would say overboard on the, the hype about the pixel three a three A XL. Because on paper, it looks amazing. It looks like it's half the price of the corresponding, you know, high end pixel three model but has the same camera the same Soffer futures. The hardware is still good. You know, Google made really smart cuts throughout two to hit this lower price point. But still, keep the quote unquote experience all the same, but the places where Google made cuts actually do make a difference when you certainly use the phone, I pointed out that it's the it's the critical misunderstanding of looking at the spec sheet and thinking that that's going to correspond perfectly to what it's like, when you use the phone, and yes, it does do all of the things that purports to do in terms of the camera being good. And, you know, having all the same software feature. Offers. But when you use it, it you don't you don't pick up at three A and think, wow. This is an eight hundred dollar phone. You pick it up and you go. This is an amazing value for four hundred dollars. But man, if they were charging more than four hundred dollars for this, it would it would be it would not be right to charge charge more because from my big things are the hardware is not nice that it just it feels cheap. It's plastic. He it's kinda gross. The vibration motor danger. You'll have to agree is horrendously bad. And that's it's really really bad. It's readily, like most one plus six level Radley I learnt say right now. Yeah. It's too strong and it's bad. So it's also slow, it's just it's not as fast and smooth is pixel three which is kind of, and we know the pixel three has its own performance problems. But this is like it's it feels like it's. Snapdragon six seventy in it. Instead of eight forty five it, the screen is not good, even by pixel three standards which are, let's say low. It's missing things like waterproofing and the speakers are not quite the same doesn't have the secondary front facing camera for wide angle shots. They're all these little things to the experience that, like, once you use the thing for a few days, you're, like, wow, great phone, but nobody is going to actually cross out this with the pixel three and thank you. This is the better phone. It's Bill values not to be. But a lot of people are saying, wow, why do they even make the pixel three anymore. You know, the pixel three is everything that that Google needs. And that's it. No. I mean, I've been using the pixel three excel a lot before I switched to the three ASL and it's like that's dramatically nicer phone, whether or not it's twice as good. I don't think Google even agrees because they've been cutting the prices on the three and three XL at this point. But it like come on people. This is not a full replacement for the higher end phones. Okay. I got I got to collect myself, ration- motor is bad. It's not bad. It's really good. It's actually very good. And it's surprisingly good. I don't know if you've ever been so wrong in your life, but no, I mean, like let's let's breakdown some of what you said. Because I think it's important, and I agree with you. That there's there are a lot of cuts to the hardware that got down to the price point, the screen isn't great. It's not bright. It's got pretty bad viewing angles. I mean as old led displays go. This is pretty twenty fifteen. Rather than running nice, grab it. So that's fair. I mean, the, the part right. If you think about the things that cost money when you look at it be OM. It's the screen, and it's the associate and they're saving a hundred dollars from both of those things by going with the six seventy in this older slightly worse led display. But we know that it's a Samsung led. So the fundamentals are there. It's probably not going to go st-. It's probably not going to burn in the way that like early LG like this is I will take this quality. Oh, lead over a pixel two XL, oh lead. Because total, there's like a fundamental flaw in those, this is just a slightly lower quality lead, and buy by phone standards of, like what's in the Moto g seven and like the Nokia seven point one leg at this is fine by those standards. But I think I guess I'm looking at it and I have done this for. All of these phones, all the phones that I review and some people don't like that. But I, I pushed back on an I look at a phone holistically. I look at it about I look at it from the perspective of every time I take it out of my pocket. Every time I pick it up is, it's distracting, or it's arts problems distracting. Or is it something that I can get used to and over the course of this? I've used the phone almost every day I stopped using it a couple of days ago and I'll explain why. But I used it as my daily driver basically, from the time I got it, and I'm talking about the three not the three excel from the time I got it until two days ago, and I will say that for everything that I do on my phone. It did not scream worse experience to me. It did not didn't shout at me the way that even using something like a motor G seven, which is admittedly one hundred dollars cheaper than the three. But, like let's use the same phone price range, the motives, the Nokia seven point one. Even even like older one plus phones, I thought fair comparison, but they're similar things about those, I guess Cummings don't get in the way of how you use your phone on a daily basis. I, I agree with that completely. I don't wanna I don't wanna make it sound as though the three has these critical flaws that make it bad to use. It just it works like a four hundred dollar phone and in twenty teen twenty nineteen we expect a three to four hundred dollar phone to not have those like critical mess up, how you use your phone during the day flaws? Right. But I think. I think it comes down to the, you know, we, we've sort of by for the, the, the industry has bifurcated and it's gone to extremes where you either by phone for very little because you don't value your time, you don't value the time you spend with probably the most important piece of technology in your life, or you're willing to spend the money necessary to get it. And I think for something like I know that's not really fair, obviously people who buy cheap phones needs to do that, for many, many reasons that I don't want to undermine the fact that certain situations force you to buy a less expensive phone, and I, I like the fact that Google is raising the bar for inexpensive or less expensive phones. Just like Motorola has done with the G line for so many years. But this pushes certain aspects of it even further and Jerry, I wanna get your ass. I wanna get your take on this because I think what Google has done is try to clone as much of the pixel three experience for better or for worse over to three a. In a way that when you use it, you don't feel like you're using a cheaper phone. And I think they've achieved that for the most part. Maybe I'm an oddball here, but I come at all this from a different perspective. This is what a phone should cost. I can buy a car for thousand dollars. I can't drive a galaxy S ten it won't take me pharmacy you to

We're going to get into his entire, very impressive and a story filled a career through the the primordial ooze of the NFL that being the international soccer league with a guy named Bill Cox, we've talked about in a previous episode or two who ran something called the international soccer league, which was sort of this international round Robin tournament in the United States. Of course, the nineteen sixty six World Cup in England, fueled even more interest in the. Right here in terms of getting some professional leagues going plural. There were no no fewer than three entities that wanted to get leagues running in two of them wind up doing so in nineteen sixty seven. You're going to hear from Clive and his his work with with Bill Cox as well as Mr Cox's involvement in one of those two leagues, the NPS l. national professional soccer league.

We're going to get into his entire, very impressive and a story filled a career through the the primordial ooze of the NFL that being the international soccer league with a guy named Bill Cox, we've talked about in a previous episode or two who ran something called the international soccer league, which was sort of this international round Robin tournament in the United States. Of course, the nineteen sixty six World Cup in England, fueled even more interest in the. Right here in terms of getting some professional leagues going plural. There were no no fewer than three entities that wanted to get leagues running in two of them wind up doing so in nineteen sixty seven. You're going to hear from Clive and his his work with with Bill Cox as well as Mr Cox's involvement in one of those two leagues, the NPS l. national professional soccer league. We've talked about that if you as well and how that led to the the NSL, which was sort of the repository of the two leagues of the came together after a somewhat disastrous nineteen sixty seven competing against each other to create at least one a standalone league in nineteen sixty eight. And you're going to hear a an amazing set of stories from Clive in our chat in a few minutes about sort of what sort of transpired there. And matter of fact, it was basically the league on life support for a few years and then slowly but surely through the efforts of of. Live Toifilou them in a handful of other long-term believers. Lamar hunt of course, and a few others got the league back on its feet and then some into just an absolute crazy time in the latter part of the decade in the early nineteen eighties, we get into all of that not only the league, but the teams like the Baltimore bays of the NPS l. and then and ASL the New York cosmos, which with which Clive toy was essentially the architect of at least until nineteen seventy seven or so when the team really was rocketing to the super stratosphere, the Chicago sting makes an appearance for a couple of years as well as the Toronto blizzard..

"And if they had only been signing, I maybe would have gotten like ten percent of the words. She would have gotten nothing. She she doesn't know how to do l. at all. And I actually really kind of tone anymore. All of my languages that I've studied, I just have, no, I didn't practice them. So I forget them all. I remember the alphabet and I really liked the fact that four, this Starbucks signing store, they have their Starbucks apron. That's starbuck. But then it also has the hand signs for those letters. And there will also be a mugs decorating the store designed by a deaf hard of hearing artists, which also has hand signs on the mugs. I'm just like, that's actually kind of cool, but all I really remember are the letters. And then like either sign for mother and father or grandmother and grandfather. But I can't remember which one it is 'cause they're very similar and I clearly no one, but don't know which one I'd be saying, so I don't use it sadly, but it's very, I think it's very interesting for this. And we hope of course that this means more inclusively not only at Starbucks just for all people in general. There will be some employees at the store who can here, but they will still also be fluent in a cell and they will have a a. Not not quite a name tag like a pin or something that says I sign on it so that no deaf or hard of hearing customers will know. Yes, even though I just totally saw this person talking to the customer in front of me, I can also communicate with this person for them to get my order. There was a thing about, you know, if you've ever been to a Starbucks in place in order, they call your name. And so they've had to figure out a way to go around that, which involves like a display area since calling out the name might not work. But this does seem like even though it's aimed at deaf and hard of hearing community both for employees, but also for customers. It does seem that it will be possible to go there. Certainly for an employee if you're fluent NSL. But I kind of imagine even if you were just a random person who happened to really want to go into a star. Ibooks, didn't know the Starbucks was the finding store. Just wanted to coffee. You could still go in and you know, be able to place your order and not have the reverse situation in the same way. You imagine many deaf and hard of hearing people places where they can't go in and place an order because without you know, then getting out a pen and piece of paper, whatever writing it down communications, really hard. I doubt Starbucks trying to set up a reverse situation of now, you know how you feel. That's not the idea here. It is about being inclusive of versity and not about what would that even be teaching a lesson. I don't know. That's not their point at all. They're of course trying to expand their brand and they put out a press statement about this. So the sounds like a really cool thing and good for Starbucks for, you know, even a heavy knee idea. I ending store though. I do kind of wonder why the first one. Was in Malaysia. I just saw that it was in Kuala Lumpar, but I don't know why Starbucks started in Malaysia. They did, however, have they call them store partners and it's not clear. Are those just regular employees? Are those like members of the corporate part of Starbucks? What does that mean? They did have store partners, whatever that means who went to Malaysia and observe the store, and we're really excited about that and wanted to have one in America. And a lot of those store partners were themselves fluent in fell. So you could see, you know how that whole tight thing tied him, but it was not clear from the parts I saw why exactly. It started in Malaysia. It didn't sound. I mean, it does sound like a testament, but it didn't sound like Starbucks was saying, hey, we started in Malaysia as a test run just to see if this would even be possible. So who knows? But either way, very exciting news, very excited to see how this works out. And hopefully this will be very successful story. And on that note, we're going to end for today. Thank you for listening to the GMC social media news podcast..

"Welcome back to the GMC social media news podcast. Our final story today, I think is really, really interesting is that Starbucks is going to be opening its first American signing store, so assigning store. I'd never actually heard this term for and I'm not sure if it's just a Starbucks. Starbucks term of other companies have these as well. But this is designed for customers who are partially or fully deaf or hard of hearing, and it will have employees that are fluent in ASL for those of you who don't know. ASL is American sign language. There is already a signing store in Malaysia which was opened up in two thousand sixteen, and this was found to be very successful and so- Starbucks wanted to open up one in America's well. This store will be located in Washington DC near Galle debt university, which evidently has a bit of. A deaf culture hub around it. So that actually works really well for the customer base there obviously going for. But Starbucks is also pointing out that this will provide employment opportunities for death and hard of hearing people, which on the one hand. I mean, it's Starbucks. So you kind of imagine it's probably like a minimum wage job on your on your feet the whole time I've worked in restaurants where it was the whole time in very glad to not have to do that anymore. But on the other hand, yes, employment for death and hard of hearing people. I can't imagine that anyone with any sort of handicap or disability, what have you call it? I don't mean to be disrespectful there. I'm just not fully sure of what the preferred term is. I can imagine that for any of those. It would be hard to find employment. Never mind whether or not they can do the job. There is of course the perception that you have this thing that makes you different in, therefore you can't, without me even giving you the opportunity to do. So we're just gonna soon. You can't. And finding employment can therefore be very difficult but also for the people who would be going to the store. Because again, I. I'm not deaf or hearing, so I don't fully know what this is like, but to have to go and communicate with people who don't speak your language and you're trying to not even get food, get anything, any sort of exchange that would happen if I give you money for you. Give me something else if you guys can't communicate the same language, that would probably be really difficult. I actually took a semester of ASL at a junior college while I was in high school because there was a complicated thing of meeting college classes for high school because I couldn't get the anyways. I was taking a different class. I decided I also wanted to take ASL as part of the class. All the students were required to go out into the community and interact with actual deaf or hard of hearing people. So one of the things that I did for to meet that requirement. Was I went to a deaf church and again, I polish is that is not the preferred term. That was how we all thought of. It was church where deaf and hard appearing people went where they signed, but they also talked which, thankfully thank goodness for that. Because at the time I was not even of an age to have a driver's license in there for my mother drive me. Thanks mom. And so she went into to this church because she's actually quite religious..

"Welcome back to the GMC social media news, podcasts, full. We get into our next story hit just suddenly hit me that even though this is the social media news podcast, we have surprisingly not talked too much about the Kardashian Jenner family, even though it feels like they are constantly in social media news. I'm not sure how that happened. Maybe it's now we have so many social media things to talk about that the Kardashian jenner's aren't as all encompassing of social media as they were, or they're just, you know, they're getting on with their lives because most, if not, all of the sisters have kids now and have been married, are going to be married or at least a long term relationship. So there are other things to go on with their lives. Besides, you know. Whatever was social media. But anyways, speaking of them and their families, Kylie Jenner inadvertently started up a bit of a media storm when she posted a video of her with her daughter. This was just supposed to be really sweet. Little thing. Her daughter stormy is now five months old. She posted a video of herself playing with the baby on Snapchat. This was clearly just to be for the fans of see how you know a big, maybe gotten excetera. But people noticed in the video that stormies ears pierced and given the fact that stormies only five months old. This set some people off that this became a huge debate on social media over whether or not it's okay for people to Pierce third children's ears. And if so, at what age will more so just should this be something the children decide for themselves. Shelves or since the parent is the one caring for them, and they're obviously not of age to make that decision at that time. And it does seem for a lot of people easier to have the baby have their ears pierced as a baby when they. I don't know. The argument was that babies will get over it quicker and not be able to play with it or mess around with it as much as a slightly older child would, and therefore it's less of a hassle to have it done as a baby, but then other people then respond to, you know, this is a permanent thing you're doing to your baby's body. Shouldn't that be something is site for themselves. Parenting. I like to avoid topics of parenting a because I don't have kids, so I don't know anything whatsoever. From experience. My sister is only a year and a half younger than me. So I was not like helping raise her of the child. If I tried to tell her what to do because I was older. She just rolled her eyes and ignored me. So there was no, like I got experience dealing with children. I know what you know what you need to do for them there. There's none of that whatsoever, but this one parenting, especially for mothers, telling someone there such a, they're bad mother, a good mother. What does that always always a media storm and people have very strong opinions about it. Kylie Jenner obviously felt this was fine. This does sometimes seem to fall along. Other with cultural lines in some cultures..

"I'm. Actually really excited for this for her to have her own comic book series. If only because so many people on social media, we're looking at this and suspecting that Sherry, having her own comic book series essentially meant that we might get a Sherry solo movie relatively soon. And I am actually kinda down for that. I think she was great. I think series a great role model for young girls because she's intelligent. She's also tough. She, you know, she's not sitting around waiting to be rescued even though the after plays her is a bit. Small certainly doesn't look fragile, but she's, she's certainly the smallest person of the main characters was out there fighting and it was like, you know what? She is holding her own. She is just fine. So it's very interesting to see how this will play out. And if this does mean that, you know they're looking to make sure movie soon or if as some people are suspecting, shirring might become the new black pan. -ther we don't know. It's always very hard to tell what Marvel's thinking. The writer for this comic book series also very interesting because it will be written by. And I apologize because I'm most likely going to put your this. Nettie ACLU reform. I did not recognize the name at first, but she is the author of the bendy trilogy. And I had heard of that. It's sort of afro futurist, which is own very interesting Jonah that I wanna check out. So that sounds like they've hired a really good writer for this particular John comic books for the character Cherie. That sounds like it might go really well whether this will then transfer into movie, who knows? We'll have to wait and see, but people were surprised not so much even that Sherry may beginning her own movie is getting her own comic book series, but more so at the fact that this wasn't essentially already there or in the works back when the movie actually came out that marvel sort of seem to have dropped the ball and didn't realize perhaps how much audiences would love Sherri, how how much. Audiences would look up to her as well, didn't realize she'd be such a popular character. So they kind of missed missed out on opportunity to really have a lot of different Tian's available for her. So they may be are now trying to make up for that or it's just, let's have everyone have their own story because that also kind of feels sometimes like what we're doing. So anyways, we're going to take a short break. Stay tuned. Find out what movies to go. See then checkout GMC movie podcast.

"I'm your host Assey and as it bills we often do. We are going to start the episode with news about beyond, say, sort of, but feel like beyond, say as miss definitely been mentioned the most on this show followed not too far behind by Cardi b. and yet this is really the social media news podcast. The music podcast, I swear it is, but so anyways, beyond say and has been Jay z are currently on. They're on the run to tore and they had a show in Paris. And just as an aside, I feel Paris should possibly feel really thankful to garters for like tourism money. They shut the video in the lube and not increase people going to lose. They have a talk show in Paris. Oh yeah. The Carters really seem to kind of like you and likewise, you get money from all the people coming to see them. So it all works out really well. But one of the people who came to see them at the show in Paris was Michelle Obama, and she was actually photographed next to beyond say's mother, Tina, and people just lost their minds as again, tends to happen with almost anything beyond say related, I do believe they, they have at least met each other know each other better wasn't like, oh, they just happen to be standing next to each other that she was actually at the show there with Tina. It was mentioned that possibly one or both of her daughters was also there, but I. Either didn't see them. Didn't notice them in the photo because a lot of the photos, there was a more wide shot one where you could see the two of them and also that you know, several guys who must be security 'cause they're just standing with their arms crossed and looking out, you know, not at the show where Michelle and Tina looking, but more so at people around them like, don't even try and come over here. So they're probably security. But then there were a lot that just completely in on his Michelle Obama and Beyonce as mom. It's Michelle Obama as mom, what do we do? But the freak out there were a lot of people talking about this just was a great week for France. 'cause they won the World Cup, which we mentioned several times on the shell and that I didn't know when it was happening. I do now. It is over France's one. Congratulations France for winning the World Cup and also everything going on with beyond say Francis doing pretty all right right now. But anyways, of course, people were just like, this is amazing. We do know that the Obamas have met fans eight before many times. She sang at President Obama's first and I- ration- second inauguration. Both rations. I swear. I do know things even though it doesn't often sound like I do. She was at one or both of the inauguration singing and that they've been sort of friendly and close. And now that Michelle, Obama is no longer the first lady and his allowed to, you know, go a bit more about her everyday life. She can sort of like Sabean have a bit more fun and decided beyond, say beyond saying Jay z. concert it is. All right. So she looked like she was having fun. It was noted that she had been dancing around at times because can you. Not to be answer. I to not know if that's possible to just sit. It'd be on concert and not around. I would certainly have a hard time doing that. But anyways, moving on. Another really awesome lady has some news going on in that. It has been announced that Suri from the Marvel's Black Panther will be getting her own comic book series. Now, I'm not a big comic book fan, and so when the marvel movies for started a, I didn't really know any of them except for the hulk maybe and wasn't too interested at first and then saw them and like some of them in like some of them not as much, but I've never really hated any of them quite life. The Black Panther movie, which you could hear on a believe if not my, I definitely one of my first episodes of the GMC movie podcast really like Sherry really like the fact that a Sherry is only sixteen, but basically in charge of all the science and Kanda and was also pretty kick ass herself in that battle..
