"I would say finally keep up what you were doing. Because you've gotten this far in life and you can go way farther than you've ever had imagined. I know a lot of people. They just want to get through everything and then just be done with it. And that's the rest of their life. No you've got to go out there and experience the world and continue to make a difference in whatever you do and enjoy it the whole time so anything. I didn't ask you that. You wanna make sure we include. So i am currently employed with interstate rescue and i am actually a project manager slash and the office. So what i do is help. Set up a new software that they're getting and importing all kinds of data in which is really good experience. And i thought it was kind of ironic because my previous employer with marlin motor company which was a dodge dealership. I learned a lot about inventory and then came to interstate rescue. Which is it's a firefighting supply company. And that was one of the first things. I started working with was inventory so it kind of helped me along the way and now i'm in more computer based parts of that job and i enjoy that i feel like it's a good connection between what i wanted to do and the bridge between my college degree itself. So it's it's a really good place to be right now between transitioning and that's what i thought was very interesting on how i was lucky enough to get this job and to enjoy it. You know if you wanna do extra classes or certifications that something that they would help you do so you can just keep climbing up that ladder. The certainly helped me so far. They helped me get certifications for shipping and stuff like that. I'm not sure if they would actually pay for my college as they're not like a big business they're small business but they've definitely supported me and i appreciate every moment they support me in whether it be free food all the time which is amazing or just the fact that they helped me with my college so if i need some time off they are willing to help me to get my college done because they know that my college is more important than they are in a sense that that's my real goal in life but i definitely love working for them and i care about them just as much as they care about me. Do you think you'll stay local for a while. Oh yeah. I love it out here. I having moved around a lot. I mean. Do you have a favorite place that you've been. I have lived in. Virginia the second half of my life. So i've lived here the longest and i don't wanna leave so i just love the views and the weather is very moderate. It's not too hot not too cold. And it's not always destructive.

"So i was able to do a few classes here at the campus and people were able to come in and if they needed some computer healthy would able to get the hell. I focused mainly on typing and basic word processing and stuff like fat. But that's kind of a big deal because they only give like one of those out right Yes because you're playing a down here. And i get this. This is a much bigger deal than and you want me to think that it is but you should be pretty proud of that. I i really am. I mainly did it. Because i've noticed around here in the community college. It's more of a adult highschool rather than a bunch of kids coming into college so a lot of adults here. Don't actually know very much about computers. Because they didn't grow up with them. So i figured it would be a good audience to focus on and help them adjust to the changes that are happening around here. So what's your dream job. I would say definitely being management of some sort. But i'm not the kind of person that enjoys bossing people around. I want to engage with people. So i want to be the leader but not necessarily in a way where i'm not doing any work. I want to be involved with them. So my dream job is something that involves that with computers. I don't necessarily have a specific section. That i have in mind yet but i do enjoy programming a lot. So maybe something that involves programming for a website or something like that algorithms and creating software programs when it comes to stuff like that. So i have to think in logic and the computers they built into my head here at llc so what did your parents. They both of them being in the military. Did they think this was a perfect match for you. Yeah i think kind of was spontaneous. But when i told my dad cybersecurity i was like what is that he said i think you would enjoy it because it involves computers and working with them and the brain of.

"Cars still is just something i feel like. I can use more brain power than power with my muscles because guys are a lot stronger than so. At what point in school did you figure out what it was. You thought you might wanna study when you went to college. It was actually my senior year when we did all the college fears. And the different colleges come in and i saw the cyber security program here l. Fcc and it was a full ride. Kinda deal where it goes from the associates and it goes straight to bachelors. And i liked that. Because i didn't have to take any extra classes i just wanted to get it done and get out there as quickly as i could not necessarily because i hate school. But because i want to start accumulating that money and get more the action than the stuff that has to happen to make the action. So what was it like your birthday on on campus. That you've been to college before. Did you always know you were going to go to college. I did know. I was going to go to college. I did not know what college i really wanted to. I'm not a very name brand person. So i did not want to go to one of those expensive colleges and i said to myself. This is very reasonable time to go to a community college. It's cheaper it's closer. I can still live with my parents. And i don't have to pay for any of that. Figured they could save money. That way. And i cared about their finances so that helped too. So what about the cybersecurity. Drew you in. Because you've talked about how it's kind of cool to be able to work with your hands and do that kind of stuff but brainpower was something you mentioned earlier was that what did it for you from a cybersecurity perspective. Well i'll tell you one thing. I looked on google. What was the highest paying. And i'm sure you would imagine the first one was doctors air traffic control and then there were cybersecurity. I think that's a reasonable choice. There's so much less stress in cybersecurity. Being doctor or an air traffic controller control was a little too much for me. And i also don't want to be an engineer but i can help alongside them and keep things secure and i figured that would help and also my parents were in the military so i figured military side kind of helped out a little bit. Was it what you thought it was going to be..

New Blink Cameras on Sale
"Today I wanna, tell you about a new product that Amazon is launching that. Of course works with Lexi. If you're listening to the flash briefing yesterday, we talked a little bit about the deal on the ring doorbell.

So you have those options and then when it comes to the outdoor version, the outdoor versions are a one, twenty, nine, ninety, nine for one, and again, if you get a two camera kit goes up but you get a discount on buying multiple cameras at a time. So pretty cool. They allow you to control the the camera with an APSE. You can see different areas of your home where you have it set up you can also choose to a gray out certain areas. If you haven't that you want to keep private the outer version obviously is rainproof or weather resistant. So that's really good and the battery life is rated at approximately two years.

"Neuroscientists also who are showing this in research that we benefits from being heard and knowing that we're cared for that someone's listening. So connection. connecting to people and connecting with God's and I do bring up the faith aspects because positive psychology has conducted research with people who live close to their fate. And the findings are that they have higher levels of optimism. I've loved this conversation. I think this is so great I again I. I. Appreciate you so much. You brought so much the table and actually I would love to link to all of these various things that use that you've brought up during this call. I've learned so much These studies at existed. So I really am so appreciative that you brought those Those on my radar should say and so I do want to. Ask You just before we rob Rep up here is. What what what are you working on? Is there anything that you want to share any project? Any anything interesting anything else that you might want to add that we didn't cover. So a final takeaway is do what we can daily with what is in our control. And identify what is not in our control and let it go. So. True. So Hard Ville, I struggling to but it's so true though you are so spot on about that. Yes you're right. You're right. Right and it's another skill to develop, and that could be a quick list as we're feeling stress. To release, sit down and say, okay I'm going to write down what can I control about the situation and what can I not control and to actually do something about what's on that list we're gonNA feel more empowered. And hopeful hope you said it it's a huge word and we need that a because. In suicide assessments, that is a very important part of the assessment is measuring the level of hope and when people have low levels of hope their higher at risk of going through with their plan. Hope, is so important home we cannot under you cannot downplay the importance of hope in everything I think. So and I think that's a beautiful way to wrap up this conversation Alekseeva.

"How can people practice gratitude on the big scale but also on the little skill or or or does that not matter or or does it matter? I love what you're saying it has to be how you're explaining it in. July. It has to be I'm so grateful that I'm alive today and I have breath and look the sun is shining. It's the little things half the matter because we don't have the events right now and we don't know what the events are going to look like once we stabilize and so we're not looking forward and so sports may be different for a very long time. So how are we going to show gratitude for that? If we're Kinda sad about it. It's to say, okay. All right. I'm grateful and if it's just that I got up this morning on grateful and if that is all I can think of an election, right? Then that's what I'm GonNa do and I'm just GonNa, go back to that and focus on it that that's a good way to tie it into what we were first talking about with accepting the way that you're feeling that day not being really hard on yourself and then saying you know I'm grateful that. I'm I'm grateful internetworking today and that's a positive beautiful thing in my life right now. Right. So I, right. So I think like you can tie those two things and in terms of finding that positively. On your daily and tying not into things that you're grateful for. So I didn't mean to interrupt. You were just about to say writing something about writing emails. So go on. Right so yet right an email, send a text going Messenger and every day say thank you to someone. Thank you for being in my life So maybe it's not something that they said or did that we can think of it. Just thank you for your presence and for your acceptance and that you love me. Because when we yeah when we help others seal happy than we are.

"Right so Productivity experts we'll talk about creating a new structure and having a space with boundaries and how many times especially in the beginning did we see a news? Tres and their children were in the background interrupting, and that's just what's going to happen when we haven't created that space in our home because our home traditionally wasn't meant for work. And so There's a deeper aspect of it as well and what I think of to keep engaged and motivated. Whether we're on our own or have a family is mix it up and have some fun. That will help our brain go into a more positive state and when our brain is in a more positive, state? Arch? Community. And engagement and accuracy on task. Shoots way up and that's in the book the happiness advantage by Shawn Acre. And some knowing that we're going to be more productive and engaged an accurate when our brain is positive we need to think how can I get my brain positive? And so mix it up. Have Fun. This is really different but think about our childhood. And what we were passionate about because this is a really great time to think. How can I go back to that? It's like if it was building Legos, what can build now. With what has in my space and connect reconnect with that passion and to balance out the every day tasks whether it's works. We used to say, do you work from home meaning women raising children? Now we literally mean argued raising your kids and doing your work and everything So we need more of a work life integration in our home, I found myself asking people go to office now. So it's not so much working from home as much as is your office open are you back in the office but Yeah it's different different times. I'll tell you but y'all go on because I. Think I hear what you're saying I think that. That's really important is to find those passions. And get that inspiration because I think that does flow into then your overall mood and how you are showing up for your work. Correct. So for example, I, am not taking an online art class and that's completely new for me. I'm also writing a lot mourn. That's also new and these have been passion that had on the inside and I don't know what happens to us when we're kids and when we were growing up, maybe it's something someone said where we suppress that patch turn and we don't really follow it because maybe we're not that healed added and do Cameron the author of the artist's way..

"So this reminds me a professor at Warton Dr Michael You seem gave a Webinar at the beginning of the pandemic and he said we are all leaders now. And what he explained was all of us have sphere of influence and all of us can make a difference with our daily choices and we are connected and we do have an effect on one another. And so one example was given here in. Tennessee. where I am in Johnson City, there was a pizza place that people were still going in and we hadn't been told to shelter in place yet in Tennessee and so one pizza owner he just decided to take the less. He didn't know if there was going to be help from the government at that point because he wanted to protect his employees. And he said, okay whatever it means financially and so another pizza owner restaurant owner followed suit and said Okay batsman socially responsible thing to do. So we do have an influence on one another. Minds me a lot of the work that the chef Jose Bruce does in terms of how he's using his how he's setting an example. Through, his restaurant and now other restaurants are following his his lead on this. How does someone that doesn't have a business? They're just They're just a resident and community. How do they tap into that? Circle. Of Influence. How can they? Demonstrate leadership during. This. Time. Well, we have to begin with ourselves and there's two parts, our thoughts, and our emotions and so. When I'M IN THE GROCERY STORE? That's my outing. Ends I'm there people are dodging one another. We're not looking at each other I'm in the south where we normally would smile and say hello and have a conversation were standing six feet apart at the grocery line and that's community right there. That's our contact with one another right now, and so there are emotions as well. So the mindset parts Ellis takes us through a threes.
"alexia " Discussed on 5 Things With Angie B
"It's something I think a lot about and I wonder how do we? Is it. So we create boundaries what how do we get around that? Then protect our personalities and our hearts from getting hard from getting jaded. What what's something that we? You know? Obviously, yes, we can watch less news and and create these foundries but what about social media and? and. Maybe maybe people around us that are toxic will how do we? How do we do that to protect our who we are to protect our personalities from getting too jaded? Well we have to acknowledge that we are all human and this is a human experience and so science studies, human behavior, and they show through the research that all of us respondents, certain ways with certain factors just naturally, and then we can build skills in those areas. So spreading boundaries like you're same is spot on Dr Caroline Leaf in her book think learn succeed she conducts research she's a cognitive neuroscientist. Her recommendation is limiting social media to two hours a day. and. So what we recommend is if the social media is at five hours, you can't just go to two hours to create a schedule to less than it without distress every day just a little bit even if it's five minutes a day that'll make a big difference in thirty days. Sounds like working out. It sounds like the same type of behavior that you need to have. When you're starting a workout. Right? You're not gonNA, go from. Never. Not running all the time to running two miles rather you you ease into it. In this case, you ease out of it out of social media for a little while and and start gradually cutting back because I feel like doing that will make it. Will help you keep the behavior versus going cold Turkey and then binging on social media the next day. 'cause you missed it so much. Exactly and what's interesting People are having disrupted sleep, and so there's exercises that we can do a doctor Martin Seligman, the modern pioneer positive psychology recommends every night to pink on what.
"alexia " Discussed on 5 Things With Angie B
"Accepting them, and then finding something positive that we can't say while we're feeling what we're feeling is that is that. What you're saying Exactly Angela you nailed it I think they words or phrases for twenty twenty needs to be self compassion give ourselves that permission and the self love. To be in, that space. I love that. That's so good. That's easy. I can do that I can pick up in the morning and say, okay, I am feeling just some way today and. There are challenges, but I'm going to focus on this positive thing. I'M GONNA, get some sunshine on the ticket deep breath. I'm going to collect myself and I'M GONNA just go about my day. I think that's very realistic and practical. So thank you for for sure for ticking off the pressure off a lot of people right now. We need that. and. So I think this is this is a good segue in terms of self compassion into this next question because this is something that. I've I saw a facebook group I'm a part of several facebook groups. I'm sure a lot of us are and a lot of people are venting on social media now and in one of these groups. this woman she posted that the. The News and just the things that are going on around her and in the world at large. Are bringing out the darkness and her and I think based on other responses and some other follow up things as she responded to some other people. It's like she skeptical she's jaded by everything that's going on. And that really. Woke something up in me because I was thinking wow, you know this. It is one thing to say or you know to to struggle with positivity and things like that but it's another to say I am feeling. This darkness towards things or how I'm F- looking at the world's dirk than it's ever been. How do we work like how do we recognize that in ourselves and what do we do about it and and so I guess some follow up questions Salat is do we create Bhandari's that we're watching too much television too much. News were were absorbing too much social media what what's your thoughts on? What so we're going to address that by looking at what the research says. And it's really interesting Michelle Gallon and son Acre. They conducted a study people watching the news and they are finding showed just watching the news three minutes in the morning. Increases. Our chances of reporting an unhappy or depressed mood six to eight hours later by twenty seven percent. And they also call this of frontal assaults on the cerebral CORTEX. That almost I- Harvard Business Review. Yeah. They're not messing around. Tell me what you think. About happiness and resilience and optimism it's a science and they're studying it with these.
"alexia " Discussed on 5 Things With Angie B
"Yeah go ahead go ahead because I again I same here and with me and with people that I know it's this. Almost constant battle between the challenges that we face and trying to keep an optimistic mind frame on a regular basis. So yes, go on. We'll right. So it's not denying that we feel that way we need to honor that because we've all of a sudden worldwide gone through chains and loss and grief isn't just about death. When someone dies grief is when we experience change unless it's a natural human process for us to experience and the first one I don't know if you can relate I can and this hits me almost every day is denial. Is this really what's happening? Is it continuing? It's just gotten worse like these thoughts go through my head and it's part of denial. That I can't just go out without a mask and sit at a cafe with friends. where? When am I going be able to. So, and then the other stages of grief. Anger. Bargaining what if we had just what if our leaders had just bad were seen playing down of anger a lot of bargaining depression. And acceptance and I can see all of that every day going through my head. So I, love what you're saying here because a lot of it seems like, okay we don't need to wake up every morning and at sunshine and rainbows and picnics. But just acknowledging that this is how we're feeling right now and that's okay, right so it's not. This thing where you have to wake up super. Smiley and force kind of this the sense of happiness on yourself when when in reality, you're feeling all of these different stages of grief. So. In essence, it's like accepting those feelings. Yes and honoring them and giving them a place and not being stuck in them. So that's what emotional regulation means. It needs. Okay. Wow. I'm really experiencing this and it's very real and okay you have a place and I'm going to journal about you. I'm GonNa talk about this to someone about you and then I'm GonNa say okay let's think on what's going well and give bat a place as well even more of a place in the day okay. What's going well and think on some positive names I love that because it certainly does take the pressure off right I. Think we can be so much easier on ourselves and take that pressure of having to be. Positive in the moment, rather show yourself a little bit of self love and say, this is home feeling right now feel those feelings. Let it pass. Then think of. Something that is going right bracelets not denying feelings but..

How do people stay optimistic on a daily level when the bills are piling up? There is no work or work as super stressful interest interpersonal relationships or stressful. How does someone stay positive? In those moments throughout the day when there are so many challenges right now. And Selah, there are a lot of talented and I have been so. Challenge, during this time with my optimism and resilience and happiness. and this is an area that I really explored and I teach on and to watch bad happened and myself has been really interesting because I've had to dig deep. What do I really believe about this and what truly works? And so it's helpful to look at the research on happiness and the findings on multiple studies including. Harvard's eighty year study unhappiness says that connection is the key. and. So when we think about that with the pandemic. This social distancing. has compounded the pandemic of loneliness that we had before the COVID nineteen virus..
Putin foe Navalny fighting for his life after suspected poisoning
"Russian opposition leader Alexia Vanni is reportedly unconscious in a hospital today and there are concerns that he was poisoned. He got sick on a flight in his plane had to make an emergency landing in the Russian city of. Joining us now is the BBC's Sergei Gorriak in Moscow. What is known about? What happened to Vanni? What would we know from now is that Navali is in stable but grave condition he's still in a coma is held in the hospital in the city of Ohm skits the middle of the Siberia and Navan his wife and his supporters came already from Moscow oems but the doctors there don't let them to go inside and to see what happens with Napoleon. Is, he also, we know that Navales supporters. Novalis. Team is going to transfer him in hospital in Europe probably that will be Hanover in Germany to be treating there because they don't believe Russian doctors and they believe more in medicine like broad But now his condition is critical and he's not ready to be transported which is why he's still there in. Now, he is forty four years old. He is a staunch critic of president. Putin, tell us more about who he is while for the last ten years broke Smith Lena has been the main opposition figure in. Russia he's the vocal critic of Putin. He's his thorn in a back. I can say so and he started as an opposition blogger right in about corruption cases among officials or businessmen somehow connected linked with the government they after he. Held a very successful campaign during the elections in two thousand eleven and these campaign against The United Russia party that's the main ruling party in this country. Made this party almost lose the elections in the State Duma. That's the parliament Navan only raised like lots of people to. Come on the streets they were mass rallies like hundreds of thousands of people in Moscow and Saint Petersburg and other cities who were protesting against United Russia the body which Nevada libels as a party of Crooks and thieves after that he tried. To run for mayor of Moscow. And dirt even tried to participate into the presidential election in two, thousand, eighteen. But he was barred from running because or was convicted in embezzlement He denies any wrongdoing. He thinks that these cases criminal case was political. He has a very successful anti corruption foundation which does a big and very A. Very good investigations on different politicians and Putin's France out He even made a very successful investigation on which means that if that's been A. Ex. President. Of Russia and Prime Minister after the that investigation specifically in two thousand seventeen, they will also mass rallies in Moscow. So there are lots of reasons, for Kremlin, not to love Nirvana as you can see. Well, and if indeed he was poisoned, this would not be the first Putin critic to be targeted. There's a long list not at all but what many experts here in Russia's say what I should agree with that such thing as only spoiling by. Either security services either some Putin's men could only happen with Putin's approval and. Now it there is no reason for Putin to try to put navalny in hospital or even to kill him because are no very prominent political campaigns running. No very big elections in Russia actually wouldn't have only was doing. Siberia. He was housing small campaigns for. Local elections in some Siberian cities where his supporters are running for some places in a city parliaments or regional parliaments, which is why still very puzzled about who and why would want Nevada to be poisoned and crime in spokesperson injury Paskov ready told that Kremlin wishes Nevada. Speedy recovery and they also told that they would help if Navales family would want him to be treated abroad.
Australia cyber attacks: PM Morrison warns of 'sophisticated' state hack
"Joining me today is Alessio Pessolano professor at King's College London an expert on Asian. Defense welcome back Alexia good to have you on the program. Let's begin with the story that we've had in the news headlines Today. This continued state based cyber attack on Australia. Good morning and not yes, quite, so what is remarkable is that. The Prime Minister himself and held a press conference in which he wanted to alert. Is the broader public in Australia. The general trends in terms of cyber attacks against the country's. Government and business institutions warm anti. We're becoming a much more sort of like Numa feature live and and these. Situations new normal was not necessarily just a matter of hackers trying to make a prank, but actually these were very sophisticated advance. state-sponsored. Cyber based. Activities, so this is quite a strong statement, and in a way it's sort of lifts a bail from something that that it was well known it was certainly understood to be the case I think the key point that he was trying to dress was to emphasize the fact that the normal Australia seems to be they are receiving. End were very sophisticated cyber offensive and end your opinion of the security services technical branches wars. This is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future, giving his launching these attacks. Yes, that was the other thing I was waiting for you question actually and to give a little bit of suspense and the the. He didn't mention it directly. But, sources familiar with Kay's from within the government confirmed to Australian media that. It was China that it was referring to and certainly walls. Notable attacks are Chinese. Certainly the point that was made if you want to between the informal chatting after the press conference ended in the press conference, Inter clearly portrays pick shot, and in which district in government is Beijing. There is very worried that China's attacks are increasingly number, sophistication and Daddy. This is unlikely to go away in something that Australians need to use nets ends. Let's move onto to another story, which is unlikely to go away anytime soon. Which is the origins of the COVID nineteen outbreak? We had claims that The original outbreak came from a wet mock in Wuhan. Now we have the latest outbreak in Beijing and fingers are being pointed once again at wet markets. Absolutely so, what is interesting about it? Is that the second time, but because it's opening in Beijing and it's the capital in Jinping and the the the sort of like the. The public information machinery in in China had been very keen to identify as it had been indeed the case for most of the cases over the last couple of months that these were imported cases, and if you remember the beginning of the outbreak in Beijing, things were pointed to woods this sound. The dead seemingly had been imported. From Europe. So was not just sort of individuals coming from your rooms, believe in food, come from Europe was responsible whole for otherwise would have been an impeccable solution found the problem. Now where we understand now is that and that is probably not necessarily the case there is increasing downs and immunologists in. In in China looking at the case, suggesting vantage original samples of devised the found on this chopping board. In reality where passed on by by individuals and what they couldn't really quite understand is how or the southern you find yourself in the middle of over significant crisis and data the moment. This is really the important piece of news that came out Lusk. Day You sir is that the conditions of the markets particularly the fact that they are kept at low temperature, high conditions of humidity very much impression to have been. Important contributing factors. In the way, in which if you want and this second wave, the one in Beijing spread out there, so the conditions are certainly becoming clear on as to why became a police over second outbreak? If you want him, why connected to wet knock? Less clear is whether the origin actually is. In boarded as he were. This article that you've been focusing on comes from the Straits, times in Singapore. There is at emphasis now that. Not, just what is happening elsewhere, but what lessons can be learned from elsewhere to protect the rest of the world. Absolutely right now Singapore is reopening for business, so and the enduring these easing of the restrictions as restaurants. And shops are all being reopened and as a result. Is. Clear attention in trying to understand what exactly is. That is going on, Ebay
Can trees talk
"Alexia Constantino and Katie McMahon both work at the smart lab at the University of British Columbia in Canada the smart lab is a diverse group of students who study how trees and soil are connected to the ecosystem Alexia studies how forest harvesting affects wildlife and Katie studies the way. The Food Forest Web recovers after mining, Alexia, Constantino and Katie McMahon. Thank you for joining us today. Thank you for having us. Yes thanks very much for having gone. I'm really looking forward to the show. Yeah me too, and so kids. If you have questions we would love for you to call now, or you can send an email to questions at, but why kids dot. Org let's dive right into the questions and we're GONNA. Start with some basics here and then I really WanNa. Get into later on a little bit more about tree communication, which is one of the things that this lab specializes in, but let's start with this question from Lucy. I'm from? Connecticut in I. WanNa Know House cleese quo. We had another question from a four year old in Bristol. Who wanted to know the same thing so Kadian Alexia? Which one of you wants to tackle, just the basics of how trees grow. Katie year I can take that first one so just like humans trees need food and water to grow but they get this there this food and water in quite a different way than we do. So trees and plants are really incredible in that they can actually get their food from the sunlight. So this process is called photosynthesis, and it's really amazing. The trees can take energy from the sunlight and just using water and carbon dioxide, rich, a molecule floating around in the air. They can create energy. On so far this energy that forms of sugars which contain. Carbon. and so that's how they get their main energy for Brawley, but then the water of course comes from the soil. So, they can take the water from the soil, using their roots, and they also get other nutrients and vitamins from the soil as well. We'll. Let's go a little bit deeper into that with a couple of other questions. We have because you were just talking Katie. About some of the The things that a treat needs like water, and it also needs oxygen and sunlight, so here's a question from Sienna I'm eleven use old. Alvin Davis, California and my question is do trees breathe, and if they do where they breathe from all right, and before you get to that, here are two more questions, hello, my name is Luna and I am seven years old. I live in Oregon. My question is how do you choose? Give us oxygen. Hi, my name Rayvey I'm seven years old. I'm from London, and my question is how you treat bay coke should. We also got a question from ranch lives in the United Kingdom with the same question, so talk talk to us a little bit more about oxygen and the role of oxygen for trees in how they breathe, and in how we breathe. Share so you can almost think of trees as breathing backwards from us so when we take a breath in We're? We're breathing in air and we're really were taking oxygen out of it. That's what we need to breathe. And then when we x hell outcomes, the carbon dioxide, and so trees actually kind of do this in reverse So you mentioned earlier that when they do photosynthesis, they're taking the carbon dioxide out of the air and using. Their sugars energy. but then. Whence that sugars in the tree gets used up. Then that when it uses up that carbon, it actually produces oxygen, and that is released back out into the air. For us to breathe as humans And spent I think one of the question mentioned Where does that happen in so the the The air actually goes into the trees through. little pores in the leaves. Are the needles called still matter and so that's where the air comes in when they're when the leads, the needles are doing photosynthesis. Do we call it breathing I? Mean would you say that trees breathe? You know that's an interesting question People feel strongly about whether you can apply thirty human centered words to trees. I'm sure we'll get to this later today when we're talking about these communicating whether trees could talk, or only humans can talk, and so I put this in the same category The air is going in and out of trees in there using. Using carbon from it and putting oxygen back into, it so whether you want to call that breathing. Is the the scientific words, photosynthesis and respiration I. Guess Out for debate.
Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak
"alexia " Discussed on The KTS Success Factor (a Podcast for Women)
"I guess as you're walking talking exactly because you start to hear while this might be important to me that this is not going to have any bearing on my audience. It's not going to help them. Connect or see my idea. A new or get out of their own way bulldozed through resistance to take the action so therefore I don't need to say it but the other powerful thing it's going to it's going to help connect you to your authentic voice so that you don't sound robotic you're going to find the color you're GonNa find your point of view by saying it out loud over and over again without attachment to your notes aspect cool. That's something I could do this afternoon. Just think about who I'm communicating with next week and and even when I'm out walking the dog is start saying it out loud because she doesn't care during it so elected can you share share a resource that my listeners might be interested in that would help them understand this challenge better on my homepage which is alexia Alexa Vernon Dot com website. I have a free audio training. Called the five communication behaviors to move any audience to action in. It goes more deeply into the subject matter. So what are habits or behaviors that you can start to ingrain that you can bring with you into any situation where you're seeking to drive people take action on your ideas. That's great and before I ask you the last question. Do you WANNA bet you're linked in training. I think that's so cool. Thank you it was. It's so much fun. Creating training which in many ways is a deeper dive into the five communication behaviors training so had the privilege of collaborating with Lincoln. Learning learning to create this course on communication drives people to take action on your ideas in the workplace and what was really fun about. This training was being able to bring in strategies that someone unorthodox but highly effective from. How do you use stories? When you're seeking to be more persuasive again? This can happen on stage but it could also happened in a negotiation with a client or it could happen in a brainstorming session with your fellow leaders and having something the thing that was designed for people all over the world. So I've been getting folks who are writing in from the Middle East from Asia from Australia area who are sharing how they are able to implement these ideas in their respective cultural contexts. Very cool. So what is one question that I should've asked you. That will help our audience take action to address this challenge whenever someone tells me this. Sounds like it's going to be hard or maybe it's not worth it. I have so many competing priorities. White is my communication matter. I like to ask that person. What will be the payoff off for you? And the people around you for unapologetically speaking up for yourself onstage in conversations for the ideas and issues oh you deeply care about and then I just zip it I use my own Cheetah. I don't over talk. And let them think in articulate and oftentimes oftentimes what comes out is yeah I would feel good. Wouldn't feel like I was carrying all this pressure around me all the time but usually particularly for women. The answer will get A to. I be leaving legacy for my daughter's for women behind me that allows them to not have to grapple with so many of the communication in leadership. Struggles I did and if I care about them having a different path I've got to walk the talk to this for myself will Alexia thank you so much. I wish shut match you. Twenty years ago when I was starting off doing a lot of speaking in in business it would have helped me overcome a lot of these things a lot faster so thanks again for joining us and for our listeners..
"alexia " Discussed on The KTS Success Factor (a Podcast for Women)
"What will be the pay off for you and the people around you for unapologetically speaking up for yourself onstage in conversations shins for the ideas and issues that you deeply care about Hello everyone welcome to the KTBS.

So welcome Alexia Alexia. Thank you for having me. I'm excited to help you kick off this important podcast. Thank you so much so tell me what is the biggest challenge orange you help. The male leaders faced business today and give us some idea. What the symptoms of this challenge? Are I describe it and really have built my career career and thought leadership around as this idea of women failing to consistently step into their moxie. And what I mean by that is possessing both the mindset and also the skill set to be able to walk into any room or onto any stage and unapologetically medically speak up for themselves for the ideas and issues that matter most to them and know that when they speak they are truly driving people to to take action and so that can be a lot to digest. I WANNA own that and I love that you asked. What are the symptoms of this challenge? Because they are numerous Morris so if you are anything like who I used to be or many of the women I've had the privilege of knowing and working with over the years. This might Mike show up in terms of not speaking up in situations where you feel called to speak up until you refine refine and perfect exactly what you want to say which usually leads you to not speaking up. It might mean that you say now is not the time where I need to get on stages at industry events or even team meetings at somebody else's role I wanna be hind the scenes doing great work or war. Maybe it even means you privilege doing research and writing articles rather than engaging in the activities that will allow you to have a larger Roger Reach but also requires vulnerability attached another big symptom. That this could be going on for you. Is that when you do speak afterward word. You find yourself almost self flagellating. I wish I had said it this way or I'm not sure of the impact was exactly what I wanted it to be or comparing yourself to other people in your profession if only I was like fill in the blank with somebody's name then I would be able to speak with confidence and competence so those are some of the things I see quite a bit. Sarah well I know I've been guilty of not speaking because I didn't think I was ready so I can actually resonate with that challenge unsure that many other people have noticed. Demonstrating that symptom. So what are the biggest mistakes your clients make before were they start working with you. I realize I started to state with some of those are but I actually want to take a step back and identify where that comes from in my book. Step in your moxy. I talk about the two paradigms that because of institutional and cultural social influences we will often fall fall into as as female leaders whether we are emerging female leaders or whether we're quite established and the dichotomy is that we tend to be either a bunny any or dragon and as I describe what these two archetypes look like. As you're listening you might actually realize oh goodness I can flip flop between both of them so when when we go into the female communication leadership archetype of the bunny. We are much like you would think when you hear the description of a bunny. We tend to be soft or cute. We WanNA be liked. We might hedge by saying things like well. I think it's this way or I feel this way but if you don't that's okay when we go bunny we don't take a lot of space. We might have our hands crossed over our bodies. We might have our voices lurch up at the end of a sentence as if we are asking a question but perhaps one of the biggest things that we do when we are going. Bunny is we over rely on facts and other people's opinions and research rather than being unapologetic about articulating. Thank the paradigm. We see things through now on the other side of the spectrum is the dragon and whether we're doing this on stages it is if we're expressing our ideas to a live audience or whether we're doing this in everyday communication when we go dragon we make things fiery. It is our way or the highway. We don't ask questions. We speak at people rather than with people and bringing them into conversation conversation when we go dragon. oftentimes we don't bring in any of our emotions. We tend to be very dry and the problem with that. What is we're not just not bringing emotion in a sense of laughing or crying? We are not bringing our own viewpoint. We tend to be very black. Can White when we're doing that dragon stuff so I see that. Show up a lot because there isn't an awareness of how to play in that gray ray underutilized space between both of those polls which I call the space of the Cheetah with we can get into perhaps in a moment because we we are oftentimes thinking that to be a leader means we have to follow a masculine paradigm of how to speak and how to lead and were not quite sure or what is a feminine but still very powerful Paradigm. Look like I got it. So is they remedy for a bunny. A dragon different. Yes and and really the bunny in the dragon her borne out of the same problem that fear if we are a hundred percent who we are born to be ourselves that somehow that won't be enough that will be discounted as weak or will be discounted for being too strong and so when I think of the archetype of the Cheetah which is what I strive to support the clients work with to follow. It's not about being a Cheetah but if you think about the animal the Cheetah for those who may not could grown up watching animal planet shows or I guess when I was growing up animal planet may not have even existed it would have been. PBS documentary the Cheetah. If you think about her are her eyes are big and present. It's almost as if there are tier marks permanently imprinted which from a metaphor standpoint standpoint means that when we're communicating in when you're leading from that place we are in touch with not just what lives from the neck up but our our whole being but perhaps one of the coolest things about the Cheetah is she can accelerate in the wild faster than any other land mammal up to sixty five miles per hour in seconds when she's not accelerating she holds back and she watches. She's incredibly present as an archetype for us with respect to our communication communication. It's that idea that we are listening and we are consistently picking up on what is being said as well as what's not being she said in conversations but also when we are in front of an audience were letting people really see who we are without apology. Were being invulnerable and yet when we do state what we think what we want to have happen when we call people to take action. There's no hedging its direct act and then we're comfortable putting a period at the end of our statements without raising our voice. Yes so if if I seek to be a cheetah what is a free and actionable tip you might give me to begin to address. It's now one of the reasons why it's so hard for us to do. That is because we will often choose the wrong way to prepare communication so in any any communication context and I see this a lot with folks I support with creating presentations but to be fair. This will show up in situations where we're about to negotiate salary. This will show up in situations where we might have to set or rearticulating boundary with someone. There's four ways to prepare any communication Asian but most of us do at one of the first three. We failed to have the communication at all. Silly say it's not the right time in ten years maybe L. privileged my thought leadership so that that's one way the second is that we might say you know what this is my year. This is my time if not now the never and then and wing it and that's not terribly helpful either because when we wing it we go in but were underprepared and usually when we do that we make location about us in just getting through it rather than actually sculpting a persuasive case can move people to Action then the third problem and I promise I'm GonNa get to the fourth. which is the solution recommending? But the problem is that we ruminate so we strive to plan everything we are going. I'm to say we rehearse our commas. We rehearse our questions and the problem with that is then. We're in our heads the whole time that we're communicating and in communication presentations are full bodied experience. And when we do that we usually forget exactly what we're GONNA say we're not listening to what's going on around us so the way that I I recommend people rehearse any communication that they're going to do is out loud and rather than planning out every single word and trying to memorize memorize it that we get up from behind our desks out from behind our computer screens and we walk and talk even planning to communicate sitting down in a meeting branding because that's the way we give ourselves the muscle memory but that's the way we also find our offensive voices is by doing it allowed enough time so that when we walk into the room or when we get on stage it's so in our bones were not searching for the words it just our communication feels right out of us so you walk and talk as preparation for the Commune S.. I figure out what you're going to say whether it's a three minute presentation giving in an executive meeting maybe it's a briefing in on your department or whether you're doing let's say attacks talk for eighteen issue. Minutes is that you begin with the end in mind and so the simplest way. Hey that I will work with folks around any communication context is. I'll ask them. What's your ideal outcome here? Name it what is it that you want this audience whether it's an audience of one on or an audience one thousand would you want them to do by the end of your communication name and then reverse engineer. So if that's the destination when you're leading to how do you ensure that everything you say. Every question you ask is in service of moving on to take that particular action whether that's to shift their thinking or to develop a new habit or to pass policy whatever it is so that it's really serving that goal and that's what you walk and talk and you get get clear about that..
