"He addresses women to stalk women. And it's like well. There is just all of your political opinions coming into your work so in that area. I kinda go. Where were the editors and everybody else going what. Jk after you put all these trans tweets. Are you sure you want to write this book. So find it more objectionable when it's book and it is a single person even though there are masses of stops between an author writing the tax. On the ashi coming onto your bookshelves. I found that more problematic than i would do. A joint efforts like tv show. Yeah it's difficult. I it totally depends on the author. There are many authors like aka like many others who who have reached the pinnacle of their careers from publishing's viewpoint where they won't be edited. The just no edited. And i think that's a shame from critical and creative standpoint. I mean like mud would be nothing without my editors Vossler important. But i think it will is also problem because of the reasons. You've just highlighted. The i think someone should have pointed the house and say this is. This is not good time to be writing this sort of character into your books. Know it's hard to say. Isn't it because everything is subjective when people. How do you legislate for subjectivity. It's very often these. These conversations ethical philosophical is very. It's really really difficult to say whether something should be allowed or should not be allowed. And i'm very wary about Censorship silencing people's voices. And all of that as i think most people all the books are interesting. And i think it's it's difficult. I think it's a different situation than you have with. Something like buffy which i completely agree with you charlotte abou- not wanting to to tall a bossy with the weeden rush because it was so many marvelous talents went into creating that the it would be a shame. Full that to tarnish the entire thing. And i think that's it's really important that we remember so many people involved in it and i think books are different in the very often an author does have particularly when they're at a certain point in their career will have final say over and even the people who once you get to book production and things like that. I mean the people who work in book production have will have no say over the text of a book a tool. So you know. They're they're fairly powerless. Nothing is slightly different situation. But i also think it's highly subjective and totally depends on on you know how much power sadly when i say power. I kind of mean money. How much that person is worth. It's funny you should say that about people getting too big to read it. And i wonder if we have a bigger celebrity status roses these days because i work full vintage news and i write articles one also history while got right back role dull an tend to him and i didn't realize what character he was.

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.

So it looks as if the backside of this kid is being replaced either by chalk or by like one of those nutty middle school erasers that we're all like known Tonto to use back in the day that white plug is full of sports, And as the infected cicadas fly around and try to mate, they are just spreading their spores from one partner to another. In that sense, it's it's sexually transmissible. It's a L made an attempt, of course, because there's no genitalia back there. That is. Not all. Some versions of the fungus contained the same chemical as psychedelic mushrooms. It's giving them kind of a sense of prolonged wakefulness instigators air like I'm drugged and ready to go ready to go and made males that are infected. Will not only continue to try to mate with females, but they'll pretend to be females to get males to come to them so they can spread the funnest to even more individuals know, Kasam says. Very small percentage of cicadas are infected with massage espera and as far as he knows the bugs, they have no idea what is happening. I don't imagine there's much pain maybe a desire to listen to the grateful Dead or something like that. But no pain.

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

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.
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.

How To Be Grateful When Everything Sucks With DaRa Williams
"Hello Dora first time on the PODCAST. Thanks for coming on. Appreciate it. Thank you, Dan. Yes it is. I'm really excited. You made time for the so thank you. You're welcome. You're welcome. You said something super interesting. What you said a bunch of super interesting things before we started rolling the first one I wanna, latch onto and. Bring back into your mind right now is use said you appreciate that we've been doing this focus on the? Four BRAHMA VIHARA during the election. And you said, I think there should be a fifth breath of Yarra, which is gratitude. And I love that and I want to know. Is gratitude possible when everything sucks. That's a good question. Is gratitude possible. Not only do I think it's possible but I think it's essential in order to navigate the sucky. You now. And when we think about gratitude, it doesn't have to be this big grand. But it could be something like I'm grateful I woke up with breath this morning you know and I'm not gonna down the whole political thing right now. But the breath is something we've all been very present to in these last five months in terms of how quickly it can be something other than available to us. Gratitude can be something as simple as waking up in the morning and really censoring oneself or really bit before this I do this even before my feet hit the ground like, thank you not to any body but. Just the expression of gratitude through my heart and mind that I'm here for another day, and then I do the listen and I hear my mom I live with my ninety six year old mom I hear her start moving around downstairs of bombs good. You know and then I hear my husband and then the cat jumps on the bed and we get a little morning greeting like those kinds of just day to day kind of small. But incrementally acknowledged opportunities for gratitude really helped to serve as a cloak or as a holding. To navigate all the other stuff that mostly all of us do from the time we start engaging with the world until the time we go to bed at night. So yeah. Yeah, and I also think maybe that aspects of gratitude are a natural kind of organic unfolding if one is engaged with Meta or loving kindness or Karuna compassion as its English word or Madisha. Sympathetic joy packer. Equanimity anyone are all those together we're in the practice of those at also Kinda fuels are strengthens this turning towards remembering. That we all have something to have gratitude about. So. That's kind of what just of showed up there in relationship to then and other thing of Abou- gratitude. Yes. Certainly these times are really off the charts and I'm a good one for saying you know. Throughout history, there's been off the chart times for groups of people at various different times but there's something about the coalescing where the coming together sn numerous. So many challenging and difficult things along with the kind of really. Challenge with. Moving away from all of that, creating the space from all of that sometimes, you may not be feel in love in your heart. Sometimes. You may not be feeling economists will like this. Sometimes, you may definitely may not be feeling joyful, but we always find something always find something that we can have gratitude for end. Every person every person I don't know if this podcast I'm sure it is probably heard outside of the United States as well. But if I'm speaking to the United States every person here including first nations people including the indigenous people of these lands. Come. From people where there were hard times. You know if you're a descendant or your ancestors are immigrants from someplace else you can bet they were hard times. You know certainly if you're African American or out of the African diaspora, you know that there were hard times and sometimes continue to be hard times and certainly if you are indigenous to this land, if you come from people who are indigenous this land from this, you also know that they were hard time.

Equity Shot: The DoJ, Google, and the suit could mean for startups
"Hello and welcome to an equity shot. My name is Alex Wilhelm. I Have Danny Crichton on the phone Danny, how are you? I'm doing. All right. Alex how are you today? Better than Google who has been sued by the DOJ and eleven state aid over anticompetitive behaviour. Now, Danny we have known for a long time that this was coming. It was pre sage tr- think rather heavily I had a chance to dig into the actual filing. I have many many opinions but just going to set the ground people are tuning in and unsure of why we've reached this moment why Google and why? Now why did take me a little bit of time to find the filing I using bang and after I gave up and Use Google which may be part of the problem but let let's let's boil it down. Obviously big tech has gotten really really large over the last decade there's been increasing concerns about all the big tech companies everything from facebook to apple, Google and onwards and onwards. What are the angles that the government is trying to take on unto regulating these companies is around antitrust. In the United States the major antitrust act is the Sherman. act. That Jay filed under this morning under section two it's specifically focused on search and particularly search advertising and so. One of the things on the conference call with journalists. This morning that the wd was talking about is obviously there's a lot of concerns about social media bias. There's a lot of concerns Abou- Anti competitive practices around android and chrome, and a bunch of other issues all around tech. This lawsuit from you Jay is only focused on searching particularly search advertising and the reason. That sort of comes out of some of theories out of Yale and some other law schools which are focused on Google's consolidation of the ad market over the the arts and teen to its acquisition of Doubleclick and a bunch of other at tech companies over the years. So they've launches lawsuit they have eleven Geez all those agencies were gop, agee's and it's filed this morning. To point out that this is all about focused on search search access in some way more than I expected the circular benefits that Google gets scale as google has more data coming into view usage you can improve its products and therefore it's better than everyone else, and so the is how does Google maintain all of this market share and my read of of of the lawsuits some of the points are pretty good. Some were bad. So I think that there's a key paragraph that I went to bring us everyone listening. That I pulled out from the filing. This is from deeper into it. So if you go just meet the I won't see it but it's a good summation. So if you'll excuse my terrible reading voice here, we here's a DOJ's opinion about all the stuff google has unlawfully maintained its monopoly by implementing force in a series of exclusionary agreements with distributors or at least the last decade particularly when taken together Google exclusionary agreements have denied rivals rivals access to the most important distribution channels. In fact, Google exclusionary conduct cover almost sixty percent. Of US search queries be things like it's android device agreements. I'd add almost half of the remains are funneled through properties owned and operated directly by Google. So essentially, this boils down to Google has used commercial relationships to essentially force other companies specifically device manufacturers to pre install google software and give Google search preeminence. Google then gives manufactures often cut revenue back to make it look like a transaction but in reality if you want to run ANDROID, you have to use Google on your phone or you can't get access to anything. That you need, and then therefore you become a partner and the consumer gets Google kind of pre installed and pre defaulted. It might my issue at this is a pre default or a preset default is not a death sentence and this DOJ filing kind of treats a preset default, the end of the conversation for that consumer. So if consumers were just more active in picking what they wanted us, there won't be much of an issue here. So I'm curious about your view on their relative strengths of the different arguments as you've rhythm. To me the with nuts here is to think back to use v Microsoft you know what? Two decades ago in one was a landmark trust case particularly in tech but even just generally, it was focus on defaults of browsers within explorer explorer on windows and twenty years for we're still talking about default search engines that are browsers but through browsers, it's not even about the browser. Today. But basically, what search engine is in the bar up I, think that this is an interesting angle. Again, I think the advertising pieces much more critical. The advertising market Google is very dominant and it's network effects is very, very strong and network only exists because Google owns a frivolous vertically integrated sort of add operation right now and can really join in any part of the tier. Tracking the can't do analytics because Google owns a whole stack and so to me that has always been the strongest part the the browsers are tricky, right so so Google does pay apple for instance, billions of dollars to be in safari and particularly mobile safari. It pays Mozilla hundreds of millions of dollars of not billions of dollars to be the default search engine in Mozilla, and that's one of the largest revenue sources for the foundation and the company. Google's argument has always been consumers have choice. In fact, BING DOT COM is less characters than google dot com it takes less work to get to Bengal com a crazy as it sounds but the reality is that has this victory in search for reason, is because they own so many different components they have you know excerpts from different sites that are built around technologies that you know even here tech-rich we have integrate with Google search to ensure that our articles are given priority in those search engines so we can't just. Ignore, Google entirely, and so I i. think the argument is fairly decent. Now, the challenge here is that there's so many different angles there seventy lost his the democratic. AGEE's have their own lawsuit underway and they've said they're going to continue to do that separately from the DOJ congress's looking into second to thirty, which affects more facebook but also potentially goodwill as a sort of open harbor and forgetting the term. Now you say her safe harbor harbor it's a safe harbor I think safe harbors would have opened component they'd be lake. Exactly, the pond. Yes. The savings bond, but you know there's all these different angles I think what's interesting is the timing obviously the the DVD and his staff this morning really emphasizing this sort of the right time he said, it was after sixteen months of investigatory work on the antitrust division happened to be exactly two weeks before major US election to the reality is is as has been a discussion at the DJ. For a decade. So you know it is obviously particularly all-time. The reality is they've been doing this work since you've only years possibly even to the Bush years as well.
