I've looked at a wider range of educational backgrounds and had all these about how education might shape cognitive labor patterns. And i thought you know. Maybe the highly educated folks might be more equitable. Because in general generally all-terrian leafs are higher among those other college degree. I'm still looking through that data so far haven't found a ton of nuance seems to be that whether or not you have a bachelor's degree the gendered patterns where women do more of this work seems to hold there's some nuances and differences when it comes to things like physical chores. There's also found that folks who didn't have a college degree seemed to be a little bit more okay calling certain things men's work versus women's work whereas those were dedicated. Where a little bit more careful not to use those sort of gender stereotypes of the actual patterns didn't seem all that different by class for educational

"Allison what is the number one difference between coaching girls and boys. Or what is the main when you when you start a talker. When you're starting to write the book what's the first thing that came to your mind about the differences. Really nothing on the field. I think between the lines. You run similar drills urine in similar exercises on tactically. You communicate the same. On the chalkboard halftime pre-game. It looks very similar. it is similar. I think the biggest difference is the emotional side to it in you know in communication and They they're both have their assets in terms of their strengths in in in their communication. And how they want to be communicated to and you know you think. There's a couple of examples that i put in the in the book you can say to know on picture day team picture day for the boys they all the big guys on the back all of them. Think you're the big guy. They are all gone. Big girls lineup. No choice of words and and it's it's a lot of it. Is the media hype. What what do we see. What do we see often on modeling. The guy side. It's these big muscular six four. You know ripped guys you know and let me see we see a lot of that's that really honoring you know smaller bodies and maybe a thinner and in girls see that in guys see that so we're apodictic social and agenda for sure So we need to be aware of that as coach and even even sometimes tone tone means a lot more than messaging specifically. I think with females. In how many times oceanside you gotta slow down to go to slow down. Take a look at that. Like how am. I going to slow down when the screaming at me with annexes your in your voice and you know we forget that processing comes in and then as i translate and try to execute that plays older friends so just being aware of that that that second quarter that goes with with boys and
Small Businesses Struggle to Hire in Tight Labor Market
"As more parts of the us fully reopen. The number of people seeking employment has been on the downturn but businesses are still struggling to find workers.

That's making it even harder to compete joining me now with more on this is wall street journal. Reporter alison praying. Hi allison thanks for joining me. Of course thanks for having me so often you've been talking to some small businesses who are looking for workers right now. What are they told you about. Some of the challenges they're facing it's a tight labor market. You know this is what big businesses are facing to we saw amazon is trying to incentivize hiring seventy thousand workers by offering some one thousand dollar bonuses. So we're seeing that. This is a really tough labor market across the board but small businesses. One told me for example. They found people but they weren't literate in using the computer so that was a problem. Another company i talked to is having a problem hiring armed security guards and has actually had to turn away business because of that or it eats into his profit margins and his profit because he's having to pay people overtime pay who do work for him. They're even going as far as rely on interns for helping when they're short staffed at the company so this really is impacting businesses. And it's they're just saying there's a lack of talent and one even told me that looking ahead to how big is company does need to grow. He's going to kind of tap out of the talent that's available in the. Us

"Quickly. Now a couple other games from the past few days that we just want to briefly touch on jayjay. What what your club did the other day. One of the most exhilarating finishes of the season allison in stoppage time with the header to keep liverpool season alive essentially. Can we hear our low. Make that call please. Absolutely here this killed in full go has saved season hoax when you succeeded in the trivia league schools. Go the screaming of the name. Allison just just an amazing moment. i even more missing. I i hate to be analytics and tactics. But i've never seen this piece from osama allardyce team where nobody nobody picks up a player and i guess it was because they taught pick up. The attacking outfield players. Don't bother with the goalkeeper. That's coming forward. It rarely works but it was such an athletic header. It was such a leap and he snapped back his neck and powered at pastime johnson. Think about it how. Good johnston being in that game. No one to get past them. None of liverpool's array of field attacking players could do it. But it's the goalkeeper who was hugely emotional after the game. The last few months few weeks with his father passing in in in tragic circumstances in brazil really came to the surface condemn. You gave a pretty pretty special post-match a conversation to to sports so what a moment moment of the season. I think in the primarily in a season that has been lacking in moments. I think it's the moment of the season
What the Human Brain Can Tell Us About NLP Models
"Are everyone. I am here with allison. Injure allison is an assistant professor at the university of chicago. Alison welcome to the tuomo. Podcasts thank you hi. I'm looking forward to digging into our conversation. We'll be talking a little. Bit about your research and computational linguistics and nlp at a bunch of cool things but before we dig into those topics i love to have you share a little bit about your background and how you came to work in the field. Great yeah so i Originally came from a background in linguistics and psychology interested in language in humans. And how language works in the brain. So i Worked in a a cognitive neuroscience lab looking at processing of language in the brain for awhile began a phd in linguistics with a bit of a focus on psycholinguistics. But fairly early on. I took a strong interest. In the promise of computational linguistics as a way both to use methods to continue exploring questions about the brain but also to ask interesting questions about how to apply puzzles in language to engineering applications and to design of artificial intelligence. And so this was what sent me in this direction of being what i am today which is simultaneously someone who works on natural language processing and artificial intelligence and also someone who continues to work on modeling of cognitive processes pretentious language.
NPR Health Correspondent, Allison Aubrey, on the COVID-19 Vaccine for Kids
"Aubrey. We've been hearing for weeks now that this age group twelve to fifteen year olds are next. What do we know about how the vaccine works for them. Scherer we'll scientist at the fda have been reviewing the clinical trial data that included more than two thousand kids and it appears to be all positive children in this age. Group develop a lot of antibodies. They have very mild side effects and pfizer says older participants in the trial will continue to be monitored for long term protection and safety for an additional two years got it so as far as efficacy and side effects are concerned it's basically affecting them just like it as adults. Yeah pretty much so. I spoke to patricia stench field. She is a nonvoting member of. Cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices. This is the group that makes recommendations she says from what's been released so far. The vaccine appears to be very effective than this age. Group seems to be one hundred percent effective. No child in the study. How on that. Twelve to fifteen year old. Adolescence got kobe. Very few kids. Got a fever. Many had arm pain just like adults and stints field says the benefits seemed too far outweigh any risks. That's kind of incredible one hundred percent effective right. And that's what was shown in the trial setting now in the real world. We might come to find out. Isn't one hundred percent but certainly early suggests it's very very effective but it appears that some parents are hesitant to get this vaccine for their kids. Right yes a recent survey from the kaiser family foundation found only three in ten parents of children in this age groups they would they would get their child vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available. Many say they'll wait now. I spoke to dr li beers about this. She's the president of the american academy of pediatrics. She says she's not surprised that there's hesitancy out there. And she says pediatricians are going to be working really hard in the coming weeks and months to reassure parents and help answer questions.

"And and would love to and that's another sort of controversial topic is hunting behind high fence. But let's. Me tell you a little about this. So we have I've been hunting for the last four years together with a group of friends and clients who have gotten to know each other all based around shooting for these antelope species called nilghai, and they are free range down in south, Texas, but they were introduced in the early thirties during the depression to Texas, they come from India, and they were introduced in bread by the king ranch originally way back when as a hunting species as a way to bring you know, revenue and bring hunters in have a Corey for them to chase. And there and they have flourished and they've done really well now, they're free range and doing fantastically all over south, Texas, and they have the most wonderful venison and you're gonna hunt them year round. And you get about one hundred twenty hundred forty pounds of good meat off of each one of these things, and it's really really good, and they're tall and wary and good here. Hiring good eyesight, and they're super spooky. And they're really a fantastic thing to go hunt and hunt him down in south, Texas, which is cool which is like sand dune country. And so it's a great time. I hunt down there with a group of people. The trip leader is Matt betters where he is one of the owners of hill country rifles, and he is just a great guy. You know, they make awesome awesome, hunting rifles and precision rifles. And he takes a few of his good clients. And I do a lot of training for some of his clients and teaching them how to shoot long-range and how to shoot precision marksmanship stuff. So we been getting together for the last couple of years going hunt these things, and it is a ton of fun. They are they are. So they're free rein should Texas. And you never know where you might see one, but the place we hunt is actually behind a high fence operation, and it's it's a big plot of land. It's you know, thirty thousand acres or something and while you're hunting every fast. And they're they're plenty wary. You know, and it's you don't feel like you're hunting and a pen at all. It's it's it's a challenging and and sporty little hunt. But it is behind hyphen fan. So, you know, that's another topic which I totally get is is controversial. And a lot of people are not into it. Don't wanna do it. And I can see what. And appreciate that. But it is a lot of fun. And it would be a great hunt to take a new hunter on or like you. You know, you mentioned the, you know, the check whatever guys do get so much hate for that. I'm sorry. I know I'm chick to we all know that girl we all know that girl who pretends like stuff the rings. Absolutely. And you know, we don't need to go down the road. The celebrity gals that are in that race. But I I'm not I'm not unaware. I know I know we're not going to name any names. We don't need to do that. Yeah. We're all supposed to be on the same team as as a general pro to a pro-hunting community, you know, whether or not we recognized the ridiculousness of certain characters or not where we're all on the same side thing. Yes. But now it is a great hunt. And it's lovely to do in a setting is that's business. You know, you're you're working with clients, and you're working with people, and you're promoting your business, and and hopefully earning and winning new business and deepening relationships with your clients, but at the same time, you're sharing that hunting experience, and, you know, bringing meet home to your family, and and great pictures and having a good time. And so we have really just enjoyed this trip. The last couple of years plus the status out Texas. So what she tag out, you can go fishing and. Yeah. You go out into the Gulf and run the flats and catch reds and trout, and you know, that's the best is, and it's a lot of fun. So, you know, it's we're fortunate to work in a business when most people are somewhat like minded to birth to, you know, good old sportsmanship and.

"They were so deepen the drink. Right. But in the more modern. Intelligence collection efforts. It's not so much cocktail circuit. So a lot of our enemies operate in in very rough environments, desert's and and urban settings where you're not meeting for drinks. Right. So that if they're if they are drinking martinis, it's when they're not at work. That's fair. So so it's so you'd say these days, not true. Fiction. Okay. How about do? You have a favorite bond theme song. Oh, well, why I going with the theme of bond. I would go with live and let the I. And do you like that movie too? Or did you just were fan of that theme song that more of more than than than actual movie at Roger Moore was he was a more of a comedic JAMES BOND. Bit too much kind of comedy side for me. Yeah. Now, I'm definitely a Connery bond girl, myself, how about most annoying mistake. You've that you see in these Hollywood movies on the agency and stuff. Oh, and a lot of surveillance work, whether it's a police show or or a spy movie. Okay. Surveillance where whether it's on on the vehicle or on foot the to get the camera angles. They have to have the vehicle following the person following way too close to be to the target. Okay. So it's it's so unrealistic that way, of course, in terms of weapons handling skills. Most of the actors. Don't don't really know what they're doing. And with the exception of our us, and Tom Cruise they are actually very well trained, Tom Cruise who is the other one there and Kiana read interesting yet this John wick series is outstanding and Tom Cruise in collateral spot on and then sometimes the the actors get get some very good instruction. And. Yeah. Yeah. Excellent. He is one of about. Yeah. And then many times, they don't that's one of my little my little campaigns in Hollywood is try to hook up where the veterans with the studios and the networks and stuff not that we wanna be exposing techniques and tactics and stuff just to show honor honor all these people who sacrificed so much like make it more realistic for them without crossing the line. So that it doesn't distract them. And they can enjoy the entertainment too. You know? If you've ever sat next to an operator watching these movies. It's not a fun experience. So. Yeah. There's a lot of disdain. I have to say I've been on some sets to just to be fair and balanced, but I've been on some sets where they have been coached. And I know the actress have been coached, and then you just see them running holding a like a rifle like, it's a ladies handbag. You know, bobbing in about and stuff. You're just like oh. Like, you know that they've just been a week and kind of kind of a training camp work on it. And in the second week. Bam who mayors Asian. At the set. It's all about getting the right face angles. And they totally forget the disciplines they were taught. So it's interesting some actors take it more seriously than others. But so Tom Cruise in canon Reeves, it's tempting to ask you who the worst culprit is. But I think we'll we try to keep things positive here. So skip that one. How about you mentioned the weapons handling is a bit of a disaster as well. Is there a movie your show that you think does a good job of weapons handling all here? Responsibly way back in time to the the actual use of shotgun for combat. By. It was in the movie the getaway with Steve McQueen. Interesting people with very very serious actor he he studied martial arts with known, Bruce Lee, and he was obvious that he got some real world weapons handling training using shotgun..

"Privy to prove to me. Why should it be jitsu? For example, if you and I were to me, and I don't mind don't like what you had to say. And you try to strike. I don't know if you have the enough training to actually load up all your weight into your hips. Two three punch precisely at the right place. Anyway. So I would you know, that's exactly the point. I actually probably I can count on one hand. How many women I know that I would say no you go ahead and Duke it out with her. Let me know how happens, you know, and works out for you. I'll come visit hospital. Good friend of mine Vanessa row house. She has will has she's a Eddie bitty twenty pound female, always smiling, you know, super nice and till you get in the ring. And then it's one of those were like I've watched fight and I turn my head away. Because I'm like, oh, those would I. And you're just waiting for the referee to stop it. I got no no problem. Canada might no good. You know, striking is fine for her. She's been doing it for twenty years. You know, if you have time to vote to it bombing that can only help. But most people don't have the time to be appoint clo- fighter. So I I think that the benefits with prime the time. Limits that you have I definitely think you have a lot more benefits that you're jitsu because you were it's the great equalizer being on the ground and most most cases. Other than someone trying to rob you is the sexual assault. Most don't do that standing. They try to pin you on the ground. Well, that's exactly where to get starts. So that's we specialize in. So having the ability to neutralize wait through being on the ground is definitely one of the most. Most important skills that you can actually attain I've had several students one recently year ago almost happened her. She only been student of mine for about six months, but knowing in confidence in like mentioned name, but she said this saved my life. This really did. I don't know how how would it turned out? But the only reason I was able to get out of the situation was just a very basic understanding of being on the ground and being able to escape and fight back. Oh, absolutely. I my heart was like beating out of his chest going awhile. I have this happen. You know? And you know, it was such a release here in that. She was able to you know to fight back and escape without any. Maybe you know, ranches with cruises. But that's about it. You know, so very prouder, and she's she sold on it. She's she's been training for the last Q years. So this is probably you're trying for about a year back. But I know she's going to be in it for lifetime. She's she's sold on it. Is that she was training for six months, not six days or six minutes or sixty minutes and some miracle class that was going to teach her all self defense that she needed. And I would Hollywood demand. Don't wait until be proactive. Not reactive. Don't don't wait till something happens before you actually slot harder. Okay. Have a lot of people that get involved and as I'm instructing him. I'll put my it's very intimate, meaning very close sport. So on the shoulder, and I just see them like jerk back and look at me. I'm like, oh, okay. And then they have, you know, they don't wanna come up to me and tell me after you know, had expats like, no problem. I completely understand. But. Don't wait. To that happens because then it's way harder. Because now you're you're trying to get over a trauma. A traumatic experience is gonna make it way harder to break through that. You know, it's actually learn what to do properly instead of just kind of constantly reliving that same moment. Yeah. It's very important. I I've seen in learning this skills if God forbid it did happen, and you do come after a can be a very good smart way to help healing. But I it must be very very difficult. Like, you said to relive that trauma and near the situations that you're thinking about using it in you know, what you're doing..

"In fact, it add inherit risk to that school night. After Florida the the state afford after the parkland shooting wanted to arm teachers, many of the big districts push back, and so then the state pivoted said, okay, we will arm non teachers, so maybe it's a football coach because sodium maintenance person have Kyrie worker eight on teacher that's on a best practice within thirty days of that of that event happening in Parkway, which was February fourteenth there were at least three probably more, but at least three incidents accidental incidents of gunfire at a school by teacher was in seaside, California, teachers during a gun, safety course. Weapon goes off people get hurt. Thank god. Nobody lost their life. Why are you practicing gun safety with the loaded weapon? So it's not a best practice at the long winded version to your answer. Allison, it's important topic. 'cause I I kind of set you up there because I agree, and it's not a popular say, but I really don't care if I believe in right to bear arms. Everyone should especially with the threats on the horizon, like the big country threats on the horizon, I think everyone should have the right to bear arms. Should they need to not that we're gonna face red dawn? But you know, I do think everyone should be self reliant and able to defend themselves in one way shape or another. Whether it's a dark alley or a more serious threat to wider scale threat to the entire home. But I. But I also strongly agree that you should never owned a weapon unless you have very very good training. And that you're regularly doing your training. Not just like one Coursey took like thirty years ago. You know? And if you're rancher farmer, you're using your hunter using your weapons regularly. That's different. But for people who you know, there's just become this trend to purchase the weapon have the weapon by the bedside. And that's enough. But sadly, you know, you ask anyone in law enforcement. I'm sure Michael you'll agree with this. I'm not speak for you. But you know, we all see these accidental discharges happen far too frequently because even even if your seal team six their training constantly scenarios because they have to be conditioned to respond. When threat presents itself, if your teacher, and you're not facing someone with a gun pointed at you every single day, you're not out on the range practicing every single day. I mean, I just are apparent. I don't think I'd feel comfortable, you know, having guns around children at a school like that. They can be used against you the shooter if it's a student can know, which teachers have the guns. I just I don't know those that's that's my little soapbox situation. So I I you're but you are spot on. And there were cases I've been to school in California, and they used to arm their security guards, not the teacher, but the security guards they told me we don't do that anymore. Why not because one day this was a high school the kids took the weapon from the security acne? So to to your point you're not talking about trained operators talking about people with no or very very minimal training in shooting. A stagnant. Target target is very different than shooting another human being who starring Lesley, especially. Yes. So it's very very different to have the accidental factor where the. Future. King could come the shooter. There are a lot of physical altercations at high schools. Right. And it ends up in groups, right or maybe a broken nose or something..

"Law enforcement social media. We get shipped off a lot on for potential events happening. So folks need to pay attention to threat indicators on social media where where it's violent where it's very disturbing things of that nature something out of character. Right. So change the baseline behavior may be appearance as well. So we have to look at these things and obsession with certain, you know, some we're gonna laugh, right? Yeah. We all over people call including me, we like violent movies, but we're not gonna go out shoot up a school. And you like certain things you're not going to do these things. But it's more of an obsessive thing especially with children. Right. So if you have a teenager, they become suddenly obsessed with certain things that can do harm who went to look at those things and really paying attention to. How things are said. In addition to what is being said. Yeah, I just personally for what it's worth. I have to say that, you know, it's always encouraged people to trust their instincts because I'm so glad you used that phrase. It's about behavior not the person with nine eleven we were talking about before offline listeners, but we were both talking about how there's often these indicators, but being America, the awesome things about us is that we don't want people to feel unwelcome or uncomfortable or singled out for being different in any sort of way. And with nine eleven it was civilians, just like all of us. You know, the the team working for the airlines noticed behaviors that they thought were alarming and concerning but they weren't acted on. Because people, you know, this will profiling fear and all that kind of thing. And I mean, there are other reasons too. But I just say that as an example, and I've got tons where ordinary folks have ended up. We have so many plots on the homeland that people have no idea. We're going on because law enforcement has been that good. But also because ordinary citizens they noticed something was not quite right. And they spoke up and said something so I think those instincts are really important. I don't know if you agree, Michael. But I agree as I was growing up. If he doesn't seem right it probably isn't right. We do need to trust our instincts at our instincts. Rarely lead us are why especially in situations like that throughout and whether it's we're in the black Friday, I suppose in two days that I will participate, but a ends of Americans do seeing something suspicious. You can't just dismiss anymore. You have to be aware. And whether that involves moving your in your family away from that person of suspicion reporting it, but we it's unfortunate. But it's the world we live in mom's we have to be vigilant we have to be aware not paranoid. We're not preaching for people. To be paranoid. You don't want people to be paranoid. But there's a distinct difference of being aware and knowing what's around just like when you drive we're wear, and if a car is driving radically, I'm probably going to try to stay away from that car speed up and pass I'm gonna fall back when get away from that because that person could run into us. So we have been very differently. And it's it's it's the situation that we live in today. And these things are no jokes talk about people's ordinary citizens standing up and making a difference a couple of weeks ago there were three school shootings that were throttled in the same week. And and the one is probably so many with this. I was a mother mixed race mother and somebody she'd never met in her life. She's a New Jersey. This person's in Kentucky makes comment. I think it was Facebook don't hold me to that was one of the social media sites and making very derogatory comment. Ray? Racial comments, and this way, because you know, what I don't know this guy. He's Kentucky whatever move on. Yeah. But something told her in her inner self, you know, what there's something to this. Should we ported the person I guess his his domicile was based on his profile called the county sheriff in Kentucky where he resided reported it law enforcement steps in. And as a matter of fact, this person was planning a school shooting. She stopped that she saved bison. I don't think she's ever been to Kentucky. Maybe she has. But she saved way several states away by taking action..

"The company was in the media, quite often whether negatively or positively and just was not a good optic, essentially, they're not gonna let you guys in schools despite that you could significantly improve the safety, so whatever fly. Exactly very frustrating. So in any event, our CEO at the time blackwater took over a company in two thousand fourteen which is our parent company will specialty and this was his vision and his concept, and so we're publicly traded company, and he discussed it with the boards gonna call one day. It was late June of fourteen and he said, hey, remember, we talked about doing his lock water like what we're talking about a lot which one and he told me what it was again. Yeah. Well, I talked to my board, and they're willing to take a look at it like, wow, man. That's awesome. Congrats goes, but I need you to do it for me. Okay. So can starting a few weeks after starting in July. We started to bet up the whole market and our regional strategy and ideal was to acquire either questions at Harvard partner with an existing company already providing this sort of active shooter training to schools and a colleague of mine, Dr Franklin, I we better this thing coast to coast, and we weren't able to find any organization that we were comfortable with aligning ourselves where myriad of reasons whether they weren't teaching practices, whether they do business, the right way, just a myriad of things. So after a few months betting, this we caught our CEO Jones. Listen, sir. You're not gonna like this. But you know, we shouldn't strained. And we can't re we're actually betting a finalist that we thought might be able to do it. And we'd better their training or the west coast in the middle of nowhere, by the way. And. Vetted this firm out, and what we saw the training like we can't sign off on this in good conscience. So he's gonna you know, frustrated. Okay. Well, you know, thanks bye. Oh, blah, blah, blah, and Mike. Well, listen, we're gonna contingency plan. So we felt confident giving our collective backgrounds more credentials etcetera that we could stand up our own training programs and base it upon best practices because since it's new right? There's no baggage. There's no legacy. So standing this thing up correctly from the job. So we created our stop the fret advanced active shooter training program, specifically for schools, taking the education element in mind. So we weren't just trying to plug and play in what Michael what works in a US embassy. Do it at the school. What works in an airport, and you do it at school. They different dynamic. So building it excludes not exclusively. But specifically when educational space because we truly felt that our children deserve that same level expertise. That's a Ford to our government officials or elected leaders celebrities other heads of state, so we had. All this knowledge. Best practice how to protect people in the most store conditions and really focus on preparation and prevention. So that's really how it got started our parent company school specialty had instill is in the business for sixty years in the education space. So it was a great avenue it, so I'm kinda bouncing around here. So we pitched or pitch to we told them our contingency plan. So we gave us thirty days. So we said something up quick, which we had already been working on road business plan. He reviewed it presented to our board into van Vancouver. They blessed it decided to form the new division. And we went live in January fifteen now, do you do focus on? Younger is the full spectrum. How does that work? It's truly the full spectrum. I would tell you the majority of our activity is in kief through twelve primarily because for two reasons one that's the parent company has been vetted for sixty years, and there's a higher rate of school shootings that occur in case twelve versus higher education, but we provide higher education services as well. We actually have corporate clients as well. So we customize one of the great things about our program. Allison is we customize tailored even within a single district a large district. We're going to have forty fifty over a hundred different schools. All those schools are different. Yes. Or some commonality, but each is different and may have unique threats. So it's important that their training and their whole strategy and plants but fifty to their facility not the one they get couple miles away..

So you're from they're actually looking for was drugs either. I guess they usually college students as drug mules and stuff.

It was just MAC and cheese. So they were very disappointed. I went on my Mary way. They let me have my MAC and cheese. So I feel for you. It's an unpleasant situation when you're suddenly sequestered input into a room. Whether you're luckily, you were not carrying dodgy, Kraft, MAC and cheese yourself back. Yeah, we're good. And they were interviewing all of us, but they were open cubicles. So we could hear what they were out on. No. They were insistent on a certain point that you know, I was actually with with my cousin, and they you and your cousin you own this company. Like, we don't own it. He's the CEO an executive no you own it. Trust me. I would know of how you'll miss company we don't own it. So it was kinda comical at at the time. It was not again, it was a very long flight back and to make that was the same triple actually brought back a para same with me. So. Wasn't a joke. That was just you know, it happens when you're over at certain parts, so and it was a delayed reaction. So I got my when I got back here. So that wasn't too fun. Yeah. I think we've had parasites. It's really it's always a weird because my friends who are like model. People are always like I'm so jealous whenever I've got. But yeah, it's really unpleasant. So I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. But yeah. So I feel it's very tense situation when they pull you aside. Like winning. I going to be able to go home army Dawson and grumpy think leave me alone, we were grumpy to save a wave. Yep.

We're talking about leaders survival and situations that ordinary citizens we all find ourselves thrust into sometimes or hopefully not. But just in case are there like you carry a multi tool were like a knife anything like that that we should we should do to I do. But again, that's personal preference depending on what someone's doing where they're going with their comfortable handling that one thing Jeter was what folks travel I always carry two forms of ID.

I was flying of New York City, and some way somehow don't ask me why it was one of the nice thing say haunted hotel, but my driver's license mysteriously disappeared. So obviously you it's hard to fly. This is post nine eleven so good lifeline without an ID. But again, I travel with two forms of ID and had a passport they to make it home in time to go to the DNB and spend the entire day there to get a do driver's license. The Friday following flying out the following Monday. So I recommend that everybody always carry two forms of ID when you're traveling because it's the what if something happens what I have that safeguard Nash to again, I know we live in a electric each. But sometimes technology doesn't work. So forget the embarrassment that maybe at the restaurant of the store in for whatever.

"Number two. What's one of the most unusual things that you've eaten in your travels all around the United States and the rest of the world. Some kind of meat. No, probably again that I'm aware of dog monkey things like that typical things that we don't see the US did not know it was dog at the time. The first time other times, I did know it was. But that's what they do other countries that was pretty wild. I'm a dog lover. So it's kinda creepy if it will. But when in Rome do what you do nothing. It's disrespectful to the local culture too. You You know? know, frequently we talked about that a lot on this show that something that can seem really grotesque in it key to us could be a great delicacy that the whole family, you know, put in their earnings for the entire month to get for that American who's visiting. So, you know, it's. Dr cooper's. Absolutely, I dealing with the Japanese and I love sushi, but I do not eat ill. But when with the Japanese you eat it because it's a sort of disrespected, it's an insult. So you just man up, and you put in front of you, otherwise could lead to you know, other ramifications. When lt. It's kinda nasty. It's kind of slimy. I know a lot of folks love it. I'm just not one of them. So it's I don't have a tongue for it. Yeah. Not a fan myself. I think the worst thing that I've heard someone had to eat was when we had Scott son and on I don't know if you've come across him, but he has a lot of he's just a phenomenal phenomenal talent. And he he's been helping shape the fitness and taking it to a next level. A lot of our special operations wings and couvert wings. But he he was talking about how and he was in Russia. He had to eat cigarette. She rats. Yes. Yes. As disgusting. As it sounds like so, and it was a cosc-. I I understand what's more. I'm gonna stick to the old fashioned Turkey. Probably call. That sounds deliver the give with okay. How about question number three? Where's one of the most unusual places that you've had to sleep? Just sleep probably, you know, under a Bush on a park bench O unusual. That is you know, obviously overseas, you know, a lot of folks slept them Connex boxes. So for a lot perhaps listening to see, but I call I box unusual. Yeah. Do we do all the time? But if you haven't been oversee that would kind of be different for some, folks. Yeah. We have a range of listeners. So for some people having to sleep in a goat shed Snyder. Big deal. And we have listeners, but we have allow listeners back here at home. Really? It's not see that in the seal team six movies. I know it either sleeping in. Overnight, Saul glamour, all glamor all the time. Looks like in the movies. Traveling. Stateside, I told folks all the time I've been traveling for a number of years and fade. It's everywhere who star to five sore so some unique places including some haunted hotels. What was that? Like it was pretty well. I mean, you know, some folks don't believe in that stuff. I guess until his, but no you're hearing things throughout the night. Maybe it was raped by the proprietors to make you think it was haunted. But I'm quite sure it it was genuine. That's crazy where where are these two hotels? The ones that I'm sure they're all over the place. I've stayed in places that West Virginia Massachusetts, typically older being type places, you know, that who've been probably exposed to many different situations over overtime. So are you actively seeking out these haunted BNB's or do? They just happen. No. I do not actively about the pleasure. The dubious honor I suppose of experiencing them how about question number four. We're going to be talking somewhat a lot. I guess today about school safety in children's. So what did you want to be? When you grow up when you were little so when I was little having grown up in western Pennsylvania. We started playing football. I think at AJ defy recall correctly.

If you're interested in fitness and eating healthy 'cause it's very high protein in. It was designed by a really awesome nutritionist who understands like soft, fitness and stuff.

So let's folks, but that's okay. That'd be happy to awesome. Okay. Next question. Do you soft guys like derange ever prank each other? And if so would you be at for sharing one of the funny ones? Sure. Yeah. No absolute everybody crank each other. I think one of my favorite pranks we ever pulled was we were actually on a fob in eastern Afghanistan, and the cello was went by it was a big army. I think it was tenth mountain at the time. And the Colonel at the time had a policy that you couldn't go into the Challe where you tease and since we're on a reverse schedule. You know, we wanted to if we weren't in our full battledress like we will we wanted to we wanted to go to the hall with PT's on. But don't. PT's are for oh PT's are the basically they uniform that you wear for when you work out and everything for Rangers. It's like sweatpants and a sweatshirt it's really comfortable. It's it's nice away round. Especially when you're on deployment. We wanna be as comfortable as possible guys are famous for having your comfy. I don't wanna see ranger pennies. But you know, how you have those. Anyway, gary. Did was we we we we're in the child we ended up taking one of the letters. And we went back, and doctored it and made it say that they're that PT's when you're now allowed forever. Okay. And so we ended up pulling distraction move where I went up and distracted the guy checking everyone in switched all the letters. So everybody the next day starts reading the PT's are allowed. And so everybody's excited running around putting on the PT's running down the hall and everything and even the big army guys where all excited everyone's everyone's standing in line of TT's Colonel, I guess he comes out, and he just starts losing. And then he finds up and then he looks at the policy let it it just created a huge uproar. That's very noble of you guys include everyone as well. Not just you guys the PT's. That's that's a great example of the selflessness of soft guys. Everyone PD's not just you get. So I take it sadly the policy returned to. And a lot of people got yelled at and there. They never figured out. It was I'm pretty sure they're probably did. But nothing ever came back on us. Important from Arale and stuff though, and none of these wax. But frankly with the all the stuff that you guys to enact fries endure if you wanna wear PD's while you're eating I don't really get the big deal. But you know, I'm not the Colonel in charge. So that's just my homeboy little in. If I were the king of the world, I would've let you guys write your PT's anytime. Of course. Okay. Next question. Do you did you ever make maybe a funny mistake as a newbie that you'd be up for sharing with our listeners because when you see these movies, it just seems impossible to think that you guys ever were human, you know, ever made a mistake. Yeah. No, stop me. Allison. I'm like, okay. Yeah. So it was probably I think it was actually my very first mission. And you know, you know, the scenes in the movie where you come like the helicopter lands. Everyone goes running off guns up like it looks really cool. And so in my head, I'm sitting there in in the helicopter, and we're just about to land. And they give the ten minutes, five minutes, minute and.

Because I think what we miss all these cool guy movies is what big hearts, and how much compassion the depth of compassion that you guys have. I've really never come across in a another profession. Don't be mad everybody. But I mean, that's just my personal opinion. I know all the keyboard. Rangers gonna be lobbying stuff at me for saying that but opinions, and you know, and I haven't even seen it in the medical profession again. I know everyone's gonna be mad at me. But and I'm grossly generalizing. But that is my personal experience that you guys are just I've never met an operator who doesn't just have limitless compassion for others. And is so thoughtful about stuff like that. And think it please don't say this way. But people might find it bit surprising. You know that you're scrubbing. How all of you guys care. So deeply for the dogs. You just you don't really see that all the kind of cool guy. Seal team six. There are scenes like honoring the dogs including the dogs. They might look cool next to an operator. But they don't really get. I mean, they have personalities, you know, and they have it. They're like a t they are team. You were talking about how dogs and bred kinda take you back home. How about music has music played a role at all. Did you was that helpful to you at all? While you were out there. I'm sacrificing so much for all of us all your time. And. Unfortunately, I don't have. I don't have a talented bone in my body. So I can't play an instrument or thing I tried to take our lessons when I was a kid. And I think the instructor told my mom just said take me bowling instead. But I grew. I don't have. I don't have a talent to save my life, and I just I love country music, but I love all sorts of music. It just depends what I'm doing. I love you know, when I retired. I didn't you know, nothing bad on the air force. But air force song is not my song. And when I retired. I played low man's lyric. Metallica walking off the stage when I get on my Jacob's ladder to do my cardio workout. I wanna listen to some Eminem. And I mean, I just music, I think is very very, it's very inspirational. It's very heartfelt. I listen to music because I love to hear the talent of the person providing it either the instruments are playing or to hear their voice. And so I love rap music. I love heavy metal. I love. I love the hard core. You know metal metal hate music. I love country music. I love you know class. Music. But I think music this kind of it just depends on the mood of what you're doing. Or who you're doing it with or where you're at? Or you know, what the moment is. It's you know, it can be very inspirational it can be it can be good for recovery can be good for morning that can be good for, you know, kicking back a few drinks with them some buddies and burn some question grill. And you know, just depends what the moment is. What the last scenario what would your playlist be a couple of favorite tunes for that? May. I just started listening to this guy, mardi Ray on YouTube music. My my my cousin who's like a brother to me just a couple years older than me. His son Noah is living with me and my wife right now, he's going through the Florida sheriffs academy to become a deputy sheriff. And he he fortunately hasn't talented play some guitar, and he just, you know, twenty two years old just kind of opened my aperture my left, right. Limit to some of the music on YouTube, and he introduced me to the mardi. Ray? You get a chance. Listen to him. Young and edgy you're like, yeah. Big deal. Youtube..

"And you guys say, oh, well selection happens every day. Right. You know, it's never stops. But and that's not also not a false statement. But I think that a lot of what the assessment is about is picking guys that have quote unquote, alpha tendencies alpha characteristics that can also sublimate self and like glorify the attributes of others for the sake of the team. Mission is the most important thing. Right like mission accomplishment is all the matters. Well. And that's not necessarily frequent and civilian. Whereas I've seen I mean. And I think that's the hard part is communicating efficient that you know, again in a civilian situation. Like, how often if I was to ask someone who went to the company can you like it's almost cliche like what's the mission in your company, and you know, the corporate the sweet guys know what it is by members -ation probably upper management does because they're kiss asses. But like the reality is that mission is something that's been really distilled at a corporate level too. You know, it's more of a an ego than an actual mission. And so to say like, hey, what is your mission? And are you actively accomplishing it in your in your job in your role? I don't think a lot of people know. So it's hard to say, I'm not if I don't actually know what the mission and the desired in-state is also correct me if I'm wrong, but it's also putting. At least for me, the concept is mission above self like, you know, there's a greater purpose to your life a greater purpose to your day. You know, something fighting for more than yourself. You know that as though when you say that word, right? That's how it was. Always you laughing know, ignore the welcome to laugh me. I know I'm like pathetically. Post laughing. At the idea that that like there is if out truest bec- thing like this subversion of self like, you know, hey, like, I'm it's so much effort to put myself second. Right. And I think that when the mission is clear and the team is tightly knit and people respect each other that it just second nature. You don't actually think about policing yourself second. It's not a conscious decision not heroes them. It's not it's not a. It's not becoming a martyr. Right. It. It's just like this is naturally. This is the right thing. And and you just do it. It's like second nature. No, I agree. Maybe I explained it wrong. But that's it's more. I agree. It's should be an instinct rather than its that selflessness. It's it's described selflessness. But I think it's a quality that the best human beings that I know have in terms of it's just an instinct right to put others, head of oneself. You know, if if there's something bad goes down in a movie theater, and there's a bad guy shooting. Are you going to be the sort of person who helps make sure that elderly woman next to you also gets out to safety or you just gonna take off yourself? You know, artfully. Person who's hanging. Shooting stuff. Well, I happen. I happen in that situation. And I have to say my reaction was I want my money back. Yeah. I was like this is so annoying. I've been waiting to see this movie. Okay. Guys. That's it for today. You know, where to go to find out more really strongly encourage you to do. So there at softly dot com. That softly dot com.

"And then also you've got the animals to deal with sounds like it's difficult. I saw a lot of non-governmental organizations. Come and go while we air, and it's just really difficult because there's a deep level of distrust between those people, and you know, white Americans and Europeans. They like they're wondering if this is the next colonists coming in. So it's really hard to explain like, no we're here to try to help. You wanna have these put install radio systems? So you can contact us early. Warning. If there's one of these warlord groups coming through or all that sort of stuff, you know? So it's really difficult for those guys and they get burnt out pretty darn fast. I felt bad for everyone of them. Well, it's a testament to you guys your stick with it nece that you'd stay out there. It's also extremely hot, and humid and stuff. Yeah. For sure it can be pretty question two before pushed Kushner to those the aunts that have those crazy castle. You know, those aunts that have those drag Gant, take out ant mounds, which. Termites actually termites. Oh, okay. Okay. Yeah. That's that's fascinating. This like structures and stuff. I didn't realize termites no wonder they're so big. Okay question. Number two. Was the craziest thing that you eat aside from Black Mamba craziest thing that I ate. I don't know probably Afghantistan. Well, that's not true. Well, I don't know what I I was in a survival course and. We we were learning how to butcher animals, and you know, they had kill some rabbits, you know. And how to butcher them and all that sort of stuff. One of the instructors had come across a road kill deer on his way to work that morning and brought in the deer. He's like. Well, you know, it's a good opportunity to learn how to feel dress. Dear for all you folks that didn't grow punning. So he started field dressing this dear with a knife in his right hand. And the first thing he did was open up the chest cavity this deer in cut out the heart in started eating it like an apple. And and all of us are sitting there like rubbing our is like wondering what the heck is going on. Here's this dude. Like nonchalant literally like nothing out of the ordinary occurring in his blood running down his chin in his hand from this. Freshly will not fresh a road kill deer meeting this hurt. And he he and then like without a word. He Hinz it to one of the guys stand. In the circle there and kind of makes that like take a bite motion doesn't say a word, but you know, exactly what he intended. So here we were passing this dear heart around from this roadshow beer of indeterminate origin, eating raw heart like all pretending everyone of us pretending that it was just the normal thing that one does that situation. Yeah. This just what hard guys use raw, dear heart. Yeah. And then, you know, then he kind of afterwards after we had all taken abide, and he's midway through open this animal. He he off handedly says like, yes, men, you know, it's always, you know, respect the animal the most consumers heart if you killed it. You know, shows some sort of spiritual connection with the animals were dislike, okay? All I know is you put this in my hands. So how so what did it taste like for those of us who will opt out of that? So. The flavor was really good. It was just tough like rubber. It wasn't. It wasn't. It was really really tough. At least on. I was. So, you know, it's a big muscle the heart pumping all the time. So I wasn't surprised, but it definitely wasn't easy. Eating. Do you do to this day? Do you feel a special spiritual connection with that road kill deer to not? I cannot say I do to shame. You probably get enough. Yeah. Well, bandies mother was delicious. The rest of. Speaking of wasting anything respectful. We we did we cook the rest of that animal aided up, and it was good. Let's get. Yeah. It definitely sounds a lot better. We've heard some sear stories about resorting to eating roadkill raccoons whatnot. With like take off the maggots and stuff. So. So I definitely rotten rotten meat during that as well. One of the.

"Very hot right now. Sorry to talk over you. But stranger things is very hot right now. So are younger listeners get it. It's like actually retro Dory. Okay. Got a camcorder. So he's got a camcorder. Everybody's hiding because we this is there's no maps whatsoever. The win this. I don't know. Exactly. What's going to happen? Feeling. Good about it. Everybody on feeling good. So I put on my Oakley glasses, and my Pell tors my hearing protection because it got to be safe. Right. Get in this Lincoln towncar. And boy, my how fast I going. I don't know. How speed? Got our you were driving the car. I'm driving. The terrorists. Don't pretend to be terrorist. Car immediately. I'm like, man. Well, I don't know if there's such a good idea, but it's random Tuesday, and there's no risk assessment or anything which went at it. So I it's so funny because the guy that had the camcorders with fring into commentating, and it's funny as all get out. So I'm driving long. I hit this freaking thing. Allison, and it blows up and rips the motor outta be engine mounts and the the oil pan, basically splashes oil all over my windshield. It like pushes my windshield in the car just goes inside all over the place. I get a little bit of glass in my face. But it's it's not bad. And in car comes to a stop to everybody comes running out of the tree line. And it's like, you know, I just wanna Super Bowl or something. I raised up around like fools. And I'm like, I'm doing the whole check that you do right after you get blown up to see if you still got everything I'm like, holy crap. So then the the major comes up. Buddy, stinky in east psych. Yeah. I think I think we can call that one good. And we're going to go ahead and put that on the shelf. Let's not do that again. So that was one of the things that we made just on a random Tuesday. So I don't know how we got to that story. But my gosh, that's so awesome. I didn't tell my wife about. Be so overjoyed to hear the story. All the otherwise. So I'm disappointed to hear it wasn't. He's an action. But gotta say that is pretty bad ass. Let me ask you this for a fact check here, we often hear that cool guys. Do not look back at explosions. This is how it goes plays out in the movies. Did you look back at your explosion? Oh, not true. We always. Buddies in your I can't get down. And then they'll kind of peak around stuff, and you know, 'cause closures are well hell, that's probably why you have the region while you're doing stuff Jack closures are cool. I don't get why they do that in the movies. They don't look bad. Why wouldn't you look back doesn't make sense? You always do especially when you have a masterpiece like that. And. You guys do know. Well, never mind that'll be a sidebar conversation. But there's some other stuff. You don't have to actually blow them up to keep them alive and stop their car. Yeah. We. Exactly. Yeah. Pretty sure you guys obscene that stuff too. So, but it isn't merely as exciting because arrest the vehicle just on spot. It's incredibly boring whereas like shoot out tires. It's not like the movies. The cars can viewer everywhere and stuff. So it's actually quite dangerous for productions if you know, some try to shoot tires. Why am I even talking about this anyway? Nerds. This is what happens when we're not chaperoned by Mike poor Ed and everybody has to listen to my nerdy out on the stuff. Okay. Question. Number two. What job did you wanna have?

I went into the air force. I worked on nuclear cruise missiles. And I was happy the lark. Stuck did not. Yup. I cross trained into combat control that I don't even really know what to say.
