Sabado dead or alive so feels like it was released as this about a film which is really strange because this sobotta is not like any other sobotta insofar as he's pretty weak. He gets framed for murder in here. And he's on the run through the whole movie which just does not fit the subotic character whatsoever. Yeah i had a hard time with a number of these trying to figure out who was supposed to be the subotic character and this one was sort of interesting. It what i guess. I got again confused. Which seems to be my go-to on. Why is this guy going through all of this trouble. And i figured okay he. He saves he set saporta up. Kills the poisons. The livestocks Water to set about up but then he helps him escape. I'm assuming they don't show who helps him escape. But it made sense to me later that it was him so that sobotta would be on the run and that he could go after him and kill everybody else that was after him to increased the bounty to get the bounty high and then he would kill Finally and collect the bounty. I mean that's what i took from it. Because i couldn't make sense of it any other way of.

"So it's like something happens you some sort of challenge and then i'm thinking to death rate. Not her i mean. I think i'm thinking over the purpose of up with a solution but even after the solution has come up with still thinking about it. Why is that. I don't know except that our brain likes to be busy so the only way i could come back. That was to tell myself that it wasn't true. Whatever it was. Whatever story i had made up about it because i think if you look at every time a challenge comes your direction and you think about all of the ridiculous stories you made up abou was going to happen. They never happen and then but we never go back away. I didn't happen. I should start thinking like that. So this is your opportunity to stop thinking like that. So what i say. When i get into those mailers challenge faced. I started to over. Think it thinking big circular. Because it's just swim right around around. I tell myself that's not true. I just say like that. That's not true. When i hear it when i hear that dialogue going so that's untrue. If it continues. I say low more firmer. That's not true if it continues beyond that. Then i say enough and just in that moment your brain goes wait a minute happening here. She did a physical action. She scolded you. And that got your attention right. And so in that moment that's just enough to disrupt that line of thinking and then you insert something else. Insert something that feels good right and so you have that focal point of the field that bank prior to all of this And so like clients have things like you know. I have a client who loves puppies.

How Do You Feel About Freedom Day? With Shelley Treacher
"Shelly. Thanks for joining us today. we wanted to talk to you about freedom day as it's been cooled while the restrictions lift everything's going back to normal and i guess the big question is you know. There's a lot of excitement around freedom day but a low of also feeling not excited and more kind of anxious and worried uncomfortable. Why is that. What's worrying about freedom honestly. I think it's really normal response to a very abnormal situation with still in an abnormal situation. I mean coming out of long. Isolation caused by terrifying deadly threats on other systems is still going to be triggered. One reason we might feel like this is because we've got used to being on god and it might take a while to come out with the body's threats like response to calm down and to get back to normal because we've been vigilant for so long and on top of that it's also possible that some of us have developed social anxiety after being isolated from others for so long so we might have a natural inclination to just wanna stay indoors and you know some of us might have here of being seen having relied on food to cope with the pandemic and coping with the pandemic might also have caused us to block off our feelings. I think. Also one thing that i'm definitely experiencing i don't know if it's the same view both but i feel novus as kind of lifting lockdown and you know mosques no longer being required and i feel very much like is the outside world actually safe. Do you feel like. That's a coleman fear and how do we deal with. Yeah i see this all the time. I mean people go from one extreme to the other. Some people have really kind of in. Denial probably blase about the risks. But a lot of my clients are saying or. I'm not really sure this is happening. All of a sudden and is a bit of a shock. So i think probably the best thing to do is to take it slowly and to check things of change. Things are different now and it's going to take a physiological systems time to catch up with that but we need to check the news tech health things have changed and check what the actual risks are now. Because they've changed. It's been a massive journey from beginning to end this million so far and we kinda need to examine exactly what we're terrified of now because it might be stuck in a year and a half ago the also it's worth mentioning light. You can still do the safety things that he made. You feel secure like i'm going to continue wearing mosques et cetera at least for the foreseeable yes hundred percent to be on his stephen dislike having this conversation an hearing all the things you talking about. Shelly i was just getting bit. Novice abou- circus. I think the way that i've dealt with Freedom day and everything is just total. Denial you know thinking that. I'm just gonna stand. A fat is fine. I'm not going to go out. Because i can work from home. I'm not going to go out to a workplace. I'm not gonna go out an go together ings yet. I'm just gonna keep wearing my mosque. Yeah it's It's a bit of a scary time. Isn't it and yes. So i will still be wearing mosque I think for me phase around the social stuff is interesting. You mentioned around this ocean anxieties because of things do this. Whole pandemic in sums of different friends approaching the whole thing very differently so i've been incredibly cautious. My whole family's been incredibly cool shit like going way beyond the government guidelines and then seeing like one of my best friends being Not cautious and not not breaking the rules but certainly being relaxed around everything.

What are the key factors in executing the digital marketing for tourism and hospitality
"For the last two episodes we have had a very vivid discussion about though wise. And what and today. of course it's going to be a little fun. Talk about the how part. I am with my guest on his head of eat. Tourism research at the university of eastern finland. So welcome you come again. High gripe to be here. This is the last episode. And i'm i'm really excited to get the opportunity to discuss these things about digital marketing with you again. It's it's been great so far. I'm really looking forward all of this episode. Well it's been a great learning experience for me. Also we are sort of. All of us are students because things are changing. If it's minute by minute but so quickly that we have to be able to be nimble and reactive on. What's happening around us. And i think that's where this how part of our feet series comes into the question so let's stocked with them. The point maybe the digital marketing tourism start from motto. Sora help us understand what are the first steps to consider. And and i think this episode bills quite nicely on top of the previous two episodes so we gone through how how the company mission the strategy actually should drive digital marketing. So all the decisions that you do in digital marketing should be. You should be able to connect them with your strategy and your mission and what you're doing bought it to say that it's also possible to do great business without that much thinking abou- strategies and missions. And if you are just able to provide a great customer experience and you are really good at sales and marketing you have all the possibilities to do fantastic basis and and being being able to be a successful With being really good at understanding your business model. But i think everything starts with the customer. So if you don't understand your customer and if you don't have this custom perspective on your own business Then it's it's getting really difficult to be to be successful. Doodoo business that that succeeds and think many times that that is a major issue with with businesses that they are so focused on what they have and how they can sail that while they have instead of looking at customers and understanding the customers one than what the customers need in. How else can be resold or hail wave. What will the company has a not just what we have at this moment but also thinking outside the box and looking at different ways to better serve the needs of of of a customer not alone and not relying just on what we have but also looking for new partnerships and new kind of marketing channels and and all different kinds of options. If you have this customer perspective on your business in are able to put yourself in in customers shoes. I think that's. That's the first. I've where wherever everything about marketing should should be built upon when when we are starting to think the channels and the messages and everything being able to put yourself in in the customer's shoes is fantastic skill to have and also is it so the two should be very specific about to your audiences and who you are. Who are you. Why are you servicing. I have noticed that people tend to get limit wide. They want to go all over the place rather than kind of laser focused on this. And then as you mentioned that the solving the problem i always is only interested in that. Solve the problem that they have not about your product right now so people are typically not interested about companies. People are interested in themselves and watson there for mia and businesses have to figure this out. That's how they tolkien communicate with customers. In last episode we talked about focusing on the benefits that the customer receives instead of the attributes of all we are a whole that will be our restaurant or or who we are as as a destination
The Floor, not the Ceiling: The Supreme Court in 2021
"Welcome back background boroughs. Ashanti here and we have another episode for today. I'm so excited to talk to. Bagnoli gilmore the state media campaigns director for planned parenthood federation of america onion. How're you doing today and doing. Well thank you so much for having me very excited to. Have you very excited to talk about the important work that you do today at planned. Parenthood really diving into the attacks that we've been seeing on reproductive justice reproductive freedom abortion rights and educating our listeners on how they can help fight back before we dive in intrude fashion. We have to know what brought you to this work awesome. Well i am a huge fan of your work and this podcast. I'm really excited to be here a little bit about me. I am in asian american woman. Born and bred in white middle america foreign raised in kansas city missouri. Where i still live today doing this work before coming into reproductive rights work. I was a journalist for ten years. And i think my work is a reporter. Gave me a front row seat to the every day. Impact that policies have on our lives. I was a healthcare reporter and solve the direct line between what happens in our state legislatures. What happens in our city. Councils and how that impacts our daily lives in how we go about it. And in the midwest that also means a very white dominant culture that sets the tone and the conversation and passes policies in that lens and i spent ten years covering those issues and decided to transition into media work for an advocacy organization that i have long admired and loved for the work that we do at our health centers across the country though now i focused on state policies state fights as we call it here at planned. Parenthood and the intersection. Those policies have on our ability to access reproductive healthcare went you said about how white men dominate policy. It's so true. And i want us to talk about what. We're seeing happening at state houses across the country. Most our listeners. Know the bg is one thing that i do my full time. Job is on the president of merge we focus on recruiting and training democratic women to run for office and we've had a huge focus on state houses in making sure that we're getting democratic women in there. I love talking abou nevada. Colorado new mexico all of those states are majority women and their state houses due to emerge alums and we see the impact that women have on the policies that come out and in a lot of the houses though where unfortunately seeing policy that is not the best when it's coming to abortion access so only two months into twenty twenty one were seeing these attacks on reproductive freedom in state houses and this statistic is crazy more than one hundred bills have been introduced in state houses in the past few weeks that target abortion access. There are so many reasons why state legislators are important. But this is one of the main ones hang you tell us about some of the things that are happening. Yeah impact that number continues to grow today when we're talking. That number is up to more than one hundred and eighty anti-abortion bills that have been filed or are pending an in early february. And that's why all. Because i only saw that hundred number last week. Yep we've seen almost another hundred a week. Yup absolutely And over forty. Five percent of those bills are some form of an abortion ban. And so you know. I think we're sitting at a moment where we are staring at an immense amount of opportunity and hope and change because of new presidential administration because of pro reproductive healthcare majority in congress yet our state legislatures do not reflect this reality where policies are made. I believe it is twenty nine states right now where anti-abortion politicians hold majorities twenty nine states over half And we are seeing a targeted attack on reproductive freedom our ability to control our bodies in lives because again this is about power and control. This conversation is rooted in white supremacy and has nothing to do with the health and wellbeing of any person who needs access to health care with really clear about that because that is what you will hear these politicians wax on about right and they'll even coop racial justice movements to talk about you know black babies and abortion end it is all rooted in white supremacy and the real question that we need to answer is who gets power and control of our bodies and our lives and our future right it be the politician predominantly white men or should it be being able to control that and so these are the policies that are getting past at the state level. And they're not just. Abortion bans a lot of these. The majority of these bills are incremental restrictions. That make it harder. Particularly on people with low incomes women people of color emigrants to access reproductive healthcare basic healthcare birth control annual exams cancer screening and of course abortion.
Darren Shaw Shares His Analysis of Whitespark's Local Search Rankings Factors Survey
"Today we're gonna talk about his twenty twenty local search rankings factor survey analysis and the survey that he conducted. Thank you so much for joining me today darren. Hey thanks for. Having me is towns. I always love chatting with gear. Oh man and plus like local is is is definitely my wheelhouse. I love chime with you and and saying the world for seo folks who don't do local. They they kind of want to stay out of it right because it's its own beast in its own right. Yeah it's kind of like you still have to do all regular seo staff but now you have three other areas that you have to worry about. So i'm excited. You do this on the survey annually. Tell me a little bit about the origin of a how you took over and kind of what it is. Yeah of course. The survey was initially developed by. David meme hit the first edition. He put out in two thousand and eight and he ran the survey up until two thousand seventeen so he did like almost a full decade of running that survey every year and it is a It's a survey where we ask the top local search experts. These are people that are researching local. Seo they're studying it they're writing about other speaking about it so that they're really engaged there their notable you know researchers trying to figure out how local search works and so we survey them and ask them what do they see working for their clients or in their business and so when you take the aggregate of forty plus people all these people that are considered the best in the world at local search. You really get to surface the top. What are the things that are really driving local search today and it's great to have the history of locust rankings actresses. You can see how things have changed over time. These things are shifting and the survey really is able to surface all that. I love it. It's it's really interesting. 'cause as we'll dive into some of these results in and what people are seeing are counterintuitive There's also you know the shifting their things that have worked for years and years and years that are maybe now slightly different. And i cheer point. It's like these are experts. So it's not like they know inside what's going on with google but these results are definitely a great guide for any local zero practitioner to think abou- where they want to focus their efforts for either their own business or their clients right. Yeah totally it is important i clarified. This is a survey of opinions. So these are the opinions of people. We don't have direct insight into google golden. Give us their their their code base for their local search algorithm but there is definitely something to be said for the hive. Mind that happens here. Because if you've got forty plus people. Doing local. Search really notable experts and thirty nine of them say that the thing they see impacting rankings the most is keywords in the business name while you know. It's pretty strong validation. If you do that one person hey what do you think impacts local search. You'll get one answer and you're like okay. Well thanks for your opinion but when you get the aggregate of like forty plus people. It really carries a lot more weight.
Reproductive Justice & Women in the COVID Economy
"Monica. Thank you for being with us today. Thank you so much for having me really is honored to be on the show with you today and to being conversation about reproductive justice. So i tell us what brought you to doing reproductive. Justice work and tell us a little bit abou- calling in reproductive justice in some people call her reproductive freedom. What brings me to reproductive justice. You know To answer that question. I have to take myself back to my hometown of wingate north carolina which is in rural north carolina. Honor one of those small one. Stop light kind of towns off a two lane highway and growing up in the rural south is. It's beautiful in so many ways that also opened my eyes to a lot at a very young age growing up in my community. I went to a school where there was only abstinence only education so we were desperately trying to find ways to have conversations about our bodies and to to talk about the feelings in the urges that we were getting as we were growing into adolescence and there was no space to do that until we had to find those things on our own and to create community with each other in huddle up in spaces to try to get this information in that to me. Just didn't seem right but we were doing the best that we could in. You know the church black church was episode for me my community. It's where i learned how to organize. I learned the had a voice. I mean there's just so much to Organizing route that. I get to the black church right because it was just an important piece in my journey however it was also a space where you know. We couldn't talk about bodies. It was just not the conversation that people were trying to have but almost every young girl that was in my church in so many that were in my community outreach. That went to school with. They were having children before graduating high school. And i'm like it's obvious that we're doing it. It's obvious that you know he's a conversation that we need to have and we just weren't having them and you know i i left wingate. I went to an h. b. c. You and came out while i was in school and it was like another part of my journey of understanding my body consent intimacy all different things that come along with growing into a young adult and i still felt. There wasn't a lot of space to have these conversations and I was desperately seeking those spaces and just trying to put the pieces together for myself. And so i think it's the experiences on. Unfortunately i also dealt with sexual assault in my adolescence as well as these experiences just all came together. And i didn't know what the term was yet but i knew that these issues were important to me in. I wanted to find answers and solutions to help me into also help those folks in our community that cared about. And so when. I put that beside you know reproductive justice movement that was started by black women in nineteen ninety four. The world starts collide. Right so yeah wasserman. Twelve black women actually came together. Some of which are very active in the work today. Like loretta ross. And dr tony bond able may will thomas here in georgia. These black women came together to create a framework that was more expansive in when thinking about our reproductive lives in this country and they brought together social justice in reproductive health and rights to talk about the intersection of her lives of black women and to have an organizing frame that allowed us to really talk about the myriad of issues. Right that we deal with lear making our decisions about our reproductive lives and so this framework was developed in nineteen ninety four battles women in now it is led by women of color all across country. Today right where we are all fighting for the human rights to have the children that we want in the ways that we want to prevent pregnancies without shame and with dignity to be able to parent our children in healthy and safe environments rights. We we we can already see the intersections of our work in terms of you know making sure i were not being plagued by you know. Environmental issues are making our water. Unclean or police brutality and we think about the rising rates of maternal mortality in this country and ultimately nova's work is really about our human rights bodley autonomy to make our own decisions about our bodies therefore our lives and so that's what reproductive justice is. It's the work it's not political home. It's where i feel whole and complete and those experiences again of growing up. Is that country. Girl and unique county is what really brought me to this work. And i didn't know that there was a movement waiting for me but it was.
Nervous system survival mode and how to get back to thriving with Nathan Chilton
"Thank you so much for coming on the show today. I'm really excited to chat. So i would love you to tell us more about yourself. And what's your story. So how did you come to be where you are today as a chiropractor and wellness coach specializing. In what you do now thinking about me so much pleasure. Well i've always been interested in the human body and a group with mammalian. Sports are always had books around the house and spines nazi books. So i've always had an interest in the human body and chiropractic clay. I was playing basketball blow and my back at the age of seventeen. I think and that was that was my first experience themselves a chiropractor at this point. It was very mechanical pain based approach in late to ron and started studying sports science halfway through degrade house thinking what to do with my life. Decided to apply for chiropractic got into chiropractic in two thousand and eight graduated in twenty twelve on then. It wasn't really until after graduating. I started to really appreciate and understand. What chiropractic is and why would offer to people and it was more of a vied to the stick but wellness approach rather than mechanical symptom approach. So that's how go into chiropractic. And and i'm no back casually been a blessing truly grateful for didn't really say his work which apply lookie lookie and nonsense but it's changed my life but is because of the power and how it changes people's lives basically unease abou the philosophy of chiropractic is. The buddy is able to heal itself. If is in the right environment and the nervous system is the system processes the environment whether it be into entity externally so working with a person with the spine to create ease in the system is balancing not stress. Response the synthetics responds in the parsing responds on. Then when the body's in state it can do wonderful things. So yeah that's how i go into it and that's why. I'm extremely passionate about about the subject about chiropractic. Going back to what you said you know when you thought when you were a teenager and you got injured that it was just you know physical manipulation and stuff like that. I think a lot of people assume that. That's what chiropractic is so talk a little bit more about how let's actually let's start with like what are the biggest misconceptions about the chiropractic. Practice a good way Talk to patients about so car isn't just about and treating pain or treating condition. Yes we can help with. Simpson such babies headaches.

Could you finger hairs on own is no What you need stitches but instead it will halonen starting after the stitches. Aided your you a native to cook. So that's how i explain it. Yes we treat. We help conditions. We don't treat them is the buddy that does the halen when it's in a state of easing and that's why i'm really passionate property. Last two years is the effect of stress and five flyers funds because it's so linked to the function of the spine on a dysfunctional spine can create predominantly sympathetic patterns within the spine whether it be from physical stress emotional stress chemicals stresses they will have a stress on the nervous system. Yes so we talk about stress and the

"abou" Discussed on TED Radio Hour
"So yes so. I mean i was just excited. I decided i was nervous. I mean i was afraid every. There were times where i was just like questioning. Like damn like the timing employment was tough. You know. I was hustling books off the trunk of the car and you know getting little speaking engagements here and there. But it wasn't like any significant amount of money coming in your okay surviving the day to day but in a tough economy adding the babies who was really scary. I think one of our first conflicts was actually around the anxiety that shock ahead abou- being a father and being able to provide. I had a good paying job. But i was the primary breadwinner and so he felt a lot of pressure to provide and a conflict arose. Because i was like i got this. You know i've got a job. i've got benefits. We're going to be okay. And that wasn't sufficient. He felt like no. I've gotta get a job. I've got to be able to provide. And so he did. Not i think i. I don't know if we've ever talked about this chocolate. But i think he felt emasculated. Because i was like i got this worry and felt i was trying to be compassionate and understanding and he felt like that i was. You know didn't need him. I never never felt emasculated. I'm just very driven person. And i'm used to taking care of people around me so it wasn't necessarily about emasculation. It was like you know. I've already failed in my responsibility with two children by banning them with my car racing and now here it is we child on the way and i'm not been able to to handle things according to the standards that i haven't visited for myself as a dad you know. I grew up in a household where there were constant complaints about working check to check and like that wasn't a vision for a half that i have for myself. So it wasn't that i felt emasculated felt purposeful and more driven to not create the same cycle. That was playing out not only in our family but in our community we had been arguing. quite a bit and we tried to fix the problems that we had an our relationship. But we hadn't gone to therapy. We really hadn't done any of the work that we need to do to Handled or address the problems that that we had And there was just so much resentment and so we reached a point where we decided that we were.
"abou" Discussed on WBSM 1420
"B S. M. Abou as a restaurant owner over the past 89 months and I can't imagine it's getting easier. No, it's been. It's been quite a struggle that we've done everything we can to revamp Aziz, much as we possibly can. By putting in outdoor dining here in the summertime and No, of course that's an expense. And then you've got you know the indoor dining where they tell you you should put up your plastic screens. And you've got to do this Covert saved 16 apart. You know you do everything you can You got to put all this money into it. And But, you know, we're living off the good graces of the public right now. We have been for months we've been we've been left in the cold but government federal government for one who is a total sham. I just I want I can't wrap my mind around and I'll never be able to understand. This is if I don't take care of my backyard. I can't help anybody. Correct. I believe that story. Way to do it. Right. So what are we doing? Giving away money to other countries right now, when we need it, the most That's what I've been saying. What the last few hours Yeah. I was disappointed by that too. Well, we'll see how it plays out. The house is just passing a $2000 Cove in size stimulus package. We'll see if that passes the Senate, but then again can only help people so much. We do need relief to restaurants and other businesses, especially the smaller businesses. We know the big guys get the bailouts, but you're you're actually collecting people's stories. I mean, I I'm sure you've got numerous countless friends in the restaurant industry in Massachusetts and around the country. But it really we only get stories here and there. We we've had a few restaurant owners and we get their their hardships. But this is this is not just a few cases here and there. This is everybody. Anybody that owns one or two Spots is is going through the same thing. What are you doing? Collecting these stories. So we've asked everybody, whether it be someone who works in the industry is a waiter, waitress. Even bus boy. I don't care if you sweep the floor up to it, owner We asking you to go to our email address and put in your pandemic story at gmail dot com and it's been very good for us. Where we received several emails. The problem that we're seeing most of all is that in the restaurant industry suicides are up 8%. Now people say percent, not a big number. It's a huge number. It's It's catastrophic people losing their livelihood to losing their families losing everything. And when that happens, you don't have an outlet. Why? Because you don't have health insurance anymore because you had a cut. Somewhere in order to keep your business alive, Eh? So we can you go? You can't go to a therapist. So what do you do? You can't talk to your wife or your husband. Why? Because you're too busy fighting with her or him. Because business sucks, and when he's not coming in And so your kids are feeling it as well. So I opened up this myself carrying George. We opened up this email account and we're asking people to just give us five paragraphs of your pandemic story. And what happened was we're reading them. We're asking people for their phone numbers and we're calling them back. And we're spending as much time as we can with them on the phone, trying to talk him off the ledge. Have one here from a lady who's writing it. Now She's writing it. She's crying. She's saying that her husband take it along their seven since Kobe came their family, they have two restaurants. And they they're out there with them, and it's suffering. Christmas was horrible for the Children. By no Christmas isn't supposed to be about the presence and all that stuff is supposed to be about family and loving each other and all that stuff, But I gotta tell you These people are not having it. I can't. How can you talk about Christmas when you're fighting with your wife, your husband about the business? No. And I even talk about that in an industry where you've got. I can't imagine how much overhead you have just to stay afloat and you've got to pay the people that are working for you, too. Coming home with a paycheck yourself is probably not the easiest thing to do. Am have seen a paycheck in a year. Not one year, not one penny. Mm out of dying now, but we haven't seen anything and it's I'm paying. Make sure my people get paid, and we're trying to pay the bills. That's all there is to it. I mean, I all right now. I owe six grand to have a source. Electric alone and they, you know they've been OK about it. But you're paying on a monthly payment. Plan the $1300 a month to pay it off. Where the hell am I getting a 1300 from to begin with? So problem. I'm in the same boat as everybody else. Yeah, I would imagine you're taking this stuff pretty seriously. As far as the pandemic. You know, your abiding by the regulations, But where do you see the state needs to go Do they need to bend on a few things? What needs to happen here? Because this hasn't gone away. However many months we've been doing this. This hasn't gone away and it doesn't seem to be going away any time quickly Unless the vaccine can get to everybody within the next couple of weeks. What does the state need to do for you guys in order to ensure that you're around for a good while longer? Um, break the rules. I have a young nephew. He's he's Uncle Mike. Uncle Mike makes the rules and I don't like breaks the rules. We've got enough you cannot. You cannot do this to us. You give you think for one second. We're not sitting here being covert safe. You're insane. If you think that a restaurant owner isn't aware of covert, and it's out there, you're insane. We get it with the safest industry around. You can't get safer than us. Charlie Baker went on TV and told the story about two sets of his friends. Okay. Two sets went to a restaurant. They couldn't do outdoor dining. Because they didn't have the room to do it. So what they do that they offered them with four top table inside the restaurant. We know the story very well. The couple of insisted to cover people. We're with the other two people before they went into that restaurant and congratulations. We're going in the restaurant. Good for you. But where were you before then? You weren't at Walmart. You want to target you want to stop and shop? You the one who just went anywhere. This is where I don't understand what this guy he's got These things he says to people. He scares the crap under the public. What are we supposed to do over here? We're not, you know, Listen. We can't. We can't survive as long as this guy sitting up in the Statehouse. This is what it is. Tarrant Toledo. I'm gonna say something. God forbid this full woman when she was reading off those numbers. She looked like she was gonna warm it. She never wanna read them. If you look at the press conference, this poor woman, so they're going. 100% of the money went to women owned businesses and two men already on businesses. 13,000 was the 13,000 applications is still outstanding. I mean, is he sitting and she looks like she wants to puke because she knows for a fact. We've been left behind. You only took care of 10% of the commonwealth, right? You got $18 billion sitting in the lottery fund. What do you waiting for Christmas next year, when when 90% of us were gone? It's pathetic When people are writing to you at your pandemic.

How to tell if clothing was made for a factory outlet
"So malls are in serious trouble. Lot life support others have already died. number of malls may be somewhere seven to ten percent of malls. Have a real future as a mall and you think abou- what malls have been about. They've been about brand name clothing and other brand name items. There used to be these things called department stores You might have to look and An online encyclopedia to know it. A department store is. I'm exaggerating but come on department. Stores are irrelevant now. So what do you do. If you're a brand name you feel like you have to go into business for yourself. And that's why there are these outlet centers on the edges of metro areas and interest areas. All over the country in so you go to these things. I'll be brand name. This brand name that brand name the other. But there's something that is a dirty little secret of shopping at these outlet centers and that is the merchandise at the outlet centers. Overwhelmingly even though it has the same brand name is not the same merchandise that would be sold in one of the few remaining malls or in one of the few remaining department stores or a non outlet outlet nine outlet center store of that brand and the the manufacturers typically will have a secret code on their clothing. Labels bid identifies for their employees.
