"Thank you, Scott. What is it like to see him today? It kind of takes my breath away Scott. Does that helps to bring some closure and some help? Help, for heroes, has been the mission of the Carnegie fund for 117 years. It has bestowed 10,000 medals and awarded $40 million. And back in 1904, Andrew Carnegie sensed what science has now confirmed. Heroes, he said, can not be created. They act on an impulse. A mysterious gift to the few. Now, an update on a story we first reported in 2018. Sharon alphonse looked at how a plastic plague was turning oceans into vast garbage dumps. A young Dutch inventor buoyant slat created a device meant to clean up the notorious great Pacific garbage patch. The eventual goal of this cleanup is to get to a 90% reduction by the year 2040. The combination of pipe and nylon netting collected more publicity than plastic. But slots organization the ocean cleanup has developed a new design. In tests, this summer and fall, its successfully collected some 63,000 pounds of ocean plastic. I'm John wertheim. We'll be back next week with another edition of 60 minutes.

Didn't to you know they're not going to say publicly you know. We warned you about x. y. z. They're just not going to do that but There sources of web indicated that the president was advised that this was not the right way in which to pull our troops out and it wasn't the right thing to make this announcement And that's just set this time limit when we weren't prepared Pen to announce the way he did and then try to cover up and blame it on. President trump. Oh i had to do this. You know president trump he. He's he's started this. A lot of nine cents be repealed just about everything. Trump inactive. Got a mess action.

"Way. Continue again for both of this talk radio and Facebook live One more segment to go just about eight minutes or so. So, tiger back to our conversation. And John has more ideas as we talk about trees. Yes. So I was mentioning the photo carpets and you know you find a variety of tree. Um, that you can sometimes find other variety cultivars that get to the height that you want. Now, The one thing that you know, Brian, you were saying is maybe invest in something a little bit more established. If you're going for something shorter, they usually take longer. And so, yeah, that you might have to invest in a 24 inch ball. You pay a little more to get it, get it that you want us all you want because you go in the nursery. You're gonna look it's gonna be sure. And so, Yeah, so well, First of all, she wants to block her neighbors for you into her bedroom. So I would definitely get shades or drapes or something first, because you're gonna need Time time plant to grow. And if you want your privacy, But Tiger what do you think about this idea for a second story rather than going with traditional hedge or, you know, shrub? What about a small tree? Like saying a goddess fluctuates. So that would definitely block out the second story, and you're only looking at what about 15 Ft. 18 ft. Max and they grow pretty quick and they grow pretty quick and, you know, unfortunately, there's not a lot of plants that will say grow to 10 ft. And stop fast, really fast and then stuff But something like the A goddess is, uh, It's the common names of peppermint tree because the leaves when you crush him smell like peppermint, so I would look into that, and that's something you can get it most garden centers, right. I don't know if you guys carrying but no, it's a very common. You can't get it in most garden centers, and they even have one called after dark, which is a burgundy forces. Which Lord I wouldn't recommend that one for her situation because it would Take forever and they tend to be a little bit more sparse, grown that after dark, but you know is you mentioned if you have the whip if you have the width and you don't need the hedge style where it's narrow, you know, there are a lot of wonderful, you know. Shorter trees. I mean, you even we know we were talking about red, but earlier that one loses its leaves in the wintertime, which maybe not be a great privacy. True, But there are other shorter trees like that. That are evergreen. You know, Magnolia, little Jim Magnolia, You know, great evergreen tree That is not super tall. I think it might be a bit short. I think they top out at 15 Ft. But you know again, back to the cultivars. There are a lot of varieties of magnolia. You know, you could go all the way to the extreme. You know? What's the grand of Flora? Is it just Grand a floor that giant magnolia that get his size of a building or you go to little gym, which you know will be 15. You know, when I was a kid, I remember neighbors that you know. There might have been if m sure there was a fence but then to grow even further over the fence. They planted bamboo all the way down the fence line, So he had the fence, and then he had another one can actually 20 ft. That's another great idea. Because there you don't want giant timber, bamboo, but for her situation, Alphonse Karr and you'd want clumping bamboo.

The Hippie Trail Killer Charles Sobhraj

"We're all born with the need to be nurtured and loved we cry out for our parents when we're hurt or when we're scared for those whose please go unheard however, the desire for affection is sometimes unbearable and can lead down a dark road. Charles Sobhraj. Never felt the love and support of a stable family. He was born in the spring of nineteen forty four in Saigon French Indochina better known today as Vietnam. His mother was a shop girl named Chen Lang Fun who went by Noy and his father Hotan Chun Sobhraj was a wealthy Indian textile merchants but the union wasn't to last when Charles was only. Two years old noise took her son away from Hotan after learning he had another wife back in India. Fortunately, for Noye, she found a new start with French army Lieutenant Alfons Doro they fell in love and married in nineteen forty eight when Charles was four but Charles wanted nothing to do with his new stepfather and long to be reunited with coach and his real family. He got his wish in one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty, nine when they moved to France with Alphonse and sent five year old Charles to live with his father. But the reunion didn't go as Charles expected just like his mother Ho Chun had remarried and started a new family amidst the growing number of half siblings. Charles struggled to compete for hotel son's attention and felt unbearably neglected. Vanessa's going to take over and the psychology here, and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist, but she has done a lot of research for this show thanks Greg unlike some of the serial killers we've discussed in the past Charles never faced physical or sexual abuse. Instead, he endured a different kind of childhood trauma. He was ignored in favor of his half brothers and sisters according to psychiatrist Bruce, Perry, feelings of parental neglect can lead to increased aggression and cruelty. He adds that one of the most disturbing elements of this aggression is that it is often accompanied by a detached cold lack of empathy. Charles started showing signs of this developing aggression over the next three years. He joined a gang of street thugs who attacked and robbed on spending tourists. Unsurprisingly, his criminal activity didn't win his father's affection. In fact, when Noyon Alfons returned to Saigon in nineteen fifty to poach on sent eight-year-old Charles. His mother it's likely that the feeling of being unwanted by both parents haunted Charles for the rest of his life. In Saigon, Charles was still a handful. So in an attempt to curtail the unruly behaviour, Stepfather Alfonse formally adopted Charles, but it made no difference. The young boy was beyond caring about the acceptance of his family worse as he got older Charles started showing signs of Machiavelli Anisim the psychological trait based around manipulation and his favourite victim was his half brother. Andre. Andre, idolized his older brother which made him. The perfect target for Charles's machinations when Charles was ten years old, he convinced two year old Andre to steal from a shopkeeper when the toddler was caught under a confessed to their mother that Charles put him up to it to which Charles proudly scoffed I can always find an idiot to do what I want. It was clear to know that something had to be done before things got out of hand. So in. Fifty Nine Nov moved the family from Saigon to Marseille hoping the change would help to manage Charles's behaviour and further his education she enrolled the fifteen year old and an agricultural school, but it didn't help though he did display an industrious nature that December Charles tried to make some pocket money by selling Christmas cards on the street but his sales tactics were aggressive. The troubled teen was arrested for threatening people with a knife when they refuse to buy his cards in another bid to reform her son noise secured Charles a job at a cafe in Paris perhaps, some menial Labor would straighten him out that year. Charles Bounce from one Parisian restaurant to. Another either working as a busboy or kitchen hand peeling vegetables and washing dishes Charles, hated the work. But no, he refused to let her son slide. He needed structure Charles moved up in the ranks of fine dining and near the end of nineteen sixty became a busboy at la, Cupola of favorite eatery for the Parisian elite according to journalist Thomas Thomson at La cooply. Charles caught glimpses of high society from his place in the back. Those few seconds is the kitchen door flapped open were enough to inspire Charles to strive for more to be rich like them,

Brit Bennett: The Vanishing Half

"And Silver Bland, and this is bookworm. My guest today Brit Bennett is the talk of the literary world her book. The vanishing half made its debut at number one on the New York Times. Bestseller list now like me. You may not think much of bestseller was but my big surprise when I picked it up is that it's a wonderful book? It's very enjoyable to read, and it's only Brit. Bennett's second book won't was the originating idea for the vanishing half. Well thanks for having me The book actually began a conversation I had with my mother where she was telling me about this town. She remembered hearing about from her childhood, growing up in rural Louisiana and it was a town. Where was a community of light skinned black people that continued to intermarry within that community in hopes that their children would progressively lighter from generation to generation, so it really struck me as I'm very strange, disturbing idea, also place, and of course as a novelist that immediately makes you think. Oh, this is the setting for a novel. We? Get a very. Dramatic sense of that sending early in the book and I'm going to ask Brooke Bennett to read. The section that describes the town. It has a great name. The name of the town is Mallard and it's named after a duck. Go It was a strange town. Mallard named after the ring necked ducks, living in the rice fields and marshes, a town that like any other was more idea than place. The idea arrived to Alphonse to soar in eighteen, forty eight, as he stood in the sugar cane fields. He'd inherited from the father who'd once owned him. The father now dead, the now freed son wished to build something on those acres of land that would last for centuries to come. A town for men like him who never be accepted as white, but refused to be treated like Negroes a third-place his mother rest. Her soul had hated his lightness when he was a boy, she'd shopped him under the sun, begging him to darken. Maybe that's what made him I dream of the town. Lightness like anything inherited at great cost was lonely gift. He'd married him lotto even lighter than himself. She was pregnant with their first child, and he imagined children's Children's children lighter still like a cup of coffee steadily done rooted with cream, a more perfect Negro, each generation lighter than the one before. Soon others came. Soon idea in place became inseparable in Mallard carried throughout the rest of Saint Landry parish colored. People whispered about it wondered about it. White people couldn't believe even existed. When Saint Catherine's was built in nineteen, thirty eight, the diocese set over a young priest from Dublin who arrived certain that he was lost, didn't the bishop tally that Mallard was a colored town? who were these people walking about?

Let's go talk to Alphonse Allie Turkey. Just his phone waiting on the bridge. The Guy Mu walks up and shit. I can only imagine meeting with the writer where you're like. Hey Okay so we love the script I think before you do a rewrite meet a black person to speak to an African American citizen. I think I pretty much get there already. I'm I'm sure this guy wasn't meant to be African in the script. 'cause I bet you that's why they had the revolutionary thing. Where like they didn't even worry about it? Not Making sense right right right because you're way more interesting to make more like International for sure makes it bigger. Yeah I I will say. I've noticed with these movies that we watch and they're certainly they'd want to not grade. But there's there's an interesting amount of diversity in the action movies in the eighties. But I give them some credit for like it seems like they made more of an effort than other movies to incorporate some diversity certainly more than Rom coms and I think it's because audience and I think action movies also are like oddly. A taxi like if you're a believable as a bad ass yeah then you get to work you know what I mean like. You don't have to be like marketable equitable if you're like. You know you just have to be fucking bad ASS random African character.

"alphonse" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership

"Welcome to another upset at breakfast leadership. PODCAST it's Michael here and I've got Allah is on the line. Follow our and doing good Michael. I'm great great to have young show today. I always I love talking with people that share my passion for helping other people with variety. Different things in particular one of the things is the you help people with is subject that I know very well in my listeners. Know very well on that spurt out so tell us a little bit. Why you got into that space? I I chose to help people with you know fighting. Burn out in being rid of it once and for all and maybe a little bit of your back story on your own burnout destroy Could start by saying that. I've been in the classroom Any the work environment that work for the public service in Canada in a half people coming in and out in the classroom and I see some trends I see some people doing a wing thanks to themselves or on undescended stab working but overdoing in some ways and tolerating SOM- Behavior or some workload issues and things like that and I know it's not sustainable in recognized ad. 'cause I was there I was doing this. The Senate it took its own toll on me and from there on aiming to help not only organisation but individuals. The reality is it's the individuals within the organization that opera pretending keep doing the same cycles. So how do we help them be be better with themselves. They're self management but also management of the environment. Most of the people I work with our managers and leaders orgainzation. So it's Archway R- you'll have to understand the alfio behavior on some trends at you see within your organization. Insulation part of making an organization sustainable is ensuring that we take care of the people any for not doing that then it creates other type of challenges. So that's pretty much the way at enter into that conversation and sometimes eats Could I say on comfortable off double because some people are so ingrained into their behavior that define themselves. Could I say naughty even recognizing when they're going down the path over knelt and even if you tried to get their attention sector is just emperor areas just temporary Arri and then one day. You're no longer see them in the workplace. and You wonder what happened than you'll find out yes. There was a sensitive. The person is on extended. Leave even your allies. That's it you'll burn yourself out so I know that I know that. Oh too well. And you know when people don't recognize that they're burned out or like you said they think it's temporary and spoiler kids three years is not temporary it's that stats stats. Something that's long standing and believe me. You know taking a couple of weeks off of work doesn't fix it as the ingredients. The lead up to your burnout are still there. That's exactly it and the first thing for me in those conversation is to realize. How did that contribute abused to make getting into the burnout? 'cause they're still thinks we do and we don't realize we actually setting ourselves up for it either whether you're a people pleaser or you're trying to showcase what it is that you're so good act and and without realizing Are Too high for the time as we still have. Twenty four hours per day period whichever level whichever task ask whichever goal trying to achieve every single. One of us has twenty four hour per day periods. So if you don't have don't keep enough time time to Could I say resource yourself and Freon that bring 'cause our brain works twenty four seven period period Whether were aware of it or not even when we're sleeping debris keeps working but if you keep Polling or stretching being that brain a moment it's GonNa snap. It's likely lasting band. If you ask stretch it around a big bottle for longtime than inevitable's back activates or regional state a state and that's why burn out as once you overstretch your brain event if you rest you're gonna be seeing the the result of that overstretching for very long time so it requires for you to put boundaries otherwise you'll find yourself l.. Ride back into the same situation where it's a couple of months couple of years later because you happen to change your behavior spot on and even with Mike Mike Bernard which was you know mobile decade ago. Now even I even noticed some symptoms last year and in other places well after launching breakfast leadership and talking with people about boundaries and burnt out and writing a book and all the things that I've done I noticed In the summer of twenty eighteen that I was approaching now. I was nowhere near the state that they needed to be. An Order of. You know I felt when I was completely burnt out but I knew that if I didn't make some adjustments to to my schedule That I was going to be in trouble so what I ended up doing was and this is an exercise that I do all the time as always look ahead. You know three or four months sometime. I'm six months into the year to see what's going on with my schedule and other things going on in historically for me autumn has always been a very very busy time of year when there's a lot of work to be done Everyone comes back from their summer break and they're all full of energy and if you worked all summer are you don't have the energy. They took it all so you're sear literally going okay and everyone's Gung Ho. Let's do this. Let's say you're Straw. Aw Finish the year strong. I'm just hoping to finish the year and in basically I saw that that was going to be a potential social issues so from the podcast standpoint. First thing I did was after about the middle of November. I rescheduled every one of my interviews interviews. So from November fifteenth until I think January eighth or ninth of this year twenty nineteen. I didn't have a single interview cancelled or rescheduled the mall and I also blocked off any type of worker trips music. -Ation time all of this kind of stuff. So I'm more or less took the last six weeks of the year off now for somebody. That's a tight bay driven entrepreneur. You you tell somebody I'm taking the last part of the year completely off everyone's like Whoa. How did you do that I I did? That's how that's how I did it because I knew that I needed to do that. Because I anticipated the twenty nineteen was gonna be like a colleague of mine has coined it a very weird word in wild year and he has been spot on so far on how weird and wild this year has been but I enter the year with breath clarity A new approach on how it was gonNA do things. I've already blocked off the last six weeks. Weeks of twenty nineteen for L.. Time Off Bay said yes gas. That's just do that now. Of course I'm also taking some vacation nation time in early November. So I may need to do something that time. But we'll deal with that but it was a case of really establishing boundaries around my I talk and you hit it right on that we all get twenty four hours. What are we going to do with it and something for me is oftentimes? Those perception is helping people realize what they're doing At what are the choices. They're making every day. That is creating a challenge college so sometimes by just going with the flow Not allowing myself to take that distance to to figure out. Is this working for me. I might be able to achieve what I wanted to achieve in. Is this sustainable over a long period of time. and Ed as you said you looked at your story you look at the patch your look at your energy level. Any say need to change that script need to do something different. Need to figure. You're out how do I move forward and if I don't do that it's understanding that abundant pay the price so for me chanting. That's is about making a differential almost every other day it's descents where if something is feeling locker pressure and you realize realize alone. Can I state. 'cause it's not sustainable. The brain is not one of those additional replacement for. Let's put it that that a break one on leg I can use a crutch I can use the other late to help me move forward but guess what there's only one three you'll mess it up. The whole thing shuts out and that's what is burnout. That's a great great description of it and it's amazing how often people get into the state and and and you know this because you work in the space. It's not something that happens overnight but you did mention since something earlier that jumped out at me. You mentioned the comment of people pleasing and you know there's books that came out in two thousand and one disease to please and I read that book. Actually I read it during my My little end of year holiday and it hit me and I'm like Oh okay and when you get that awareness of self me realize all right eight and I found a new ingredient to what led up to my burn out. It really hit home. I see that a lot with with people that burn out they attended. Be those that want to please people Either from getting the positive affirmation or may be. They grew up in an environment where there was a lot of narcissism or NC or your name and all kinds of different challenges and or a type A personality -ality that unfortunately got addicted to the relates. So You keep doing it because you want those accolades but you're not. You're not taking the time to actually Sri enjoy life is. You're so busy just working in when you know. Work with people especially executives or managers are putting in insane hours at work. I tell them you know pictures of your kids. If they have children on your desk in often I say yeah. Yeah that's like I do. I said well what I want you to do. Speaker out a way to spend more time looking at them face to face instead of looking at five year pictures of Oh and that gets their attention a little bit. I'm telling you you blink and your first child you bring home next thing you know. They're about ready to graduate together driver's license. They'RE GONNA move in New York and you're like how wait a minute. How can that be or this is funny thing to how quickly time flies? I was in Chicago. Speaking on a physician burnout topic Healthier conference and I lived in Chicago for about six years so I flipped on the news to turn it on and I see some similar news. Reporters and anchors and all that but there twenty years older and it really messed with my brain for a moment because what happened to them and I realized I left twenty many years ago. That's what happens though they got older. Take a look in the Mirror Mike. Guess what do crowd you know. Yeah Yeah and and he is your brain for some reason time passes but there are certain elements of things really. Don't time that can't be possible. The twenty years have passed. But you look and you know what do you know who know and the funny part at least for me. I'm also a parent aren't of young adults. The challenge is if you don't stop to pay attention to what's happening now you're GonNa look back and then have regrets. I don't wonder how regrets so I was trying to juggle the good time with the kids. The quality time I'm with the friends the good performance with the work. So you're trying to take everything on and thinking that you can't carry all then at one point not just like it's not a week still only twenty four for twenty four hours in a day so you'll have to make priorities and stick to it. Saw Roll my burnout. Allowed me to actually okay. This is it needs to figure out what's important for me. Need to figure out what legacy I WANNA quantitive with my kids. I don't want them to say. Just say yes. My mom had a job that was demanding and we barely saw her. I want them to say I have a great relationship with so far that I had to invest edge. It's where it's the same thing at work if you WANNA have a great relationship nations sheep at work. You don't WanNa be at work with your colleagues and all we do is complain about the insanity of the base. We have to stop look at the base figure out what we need to prove that base and make it work for everybody because what you realize that we sometimes forget what. I'm feeling feeling when I'm over under pressure for everything at work is chances are filling it other people's feeling it too and if we're all feeling depressed and stressed guess what. No one is performing the way they should. So what do we need to do about that. So for me when I'm at work in same thing when I'm at home it's all about the collective have to get the best result possible and do I recognize the trends that were setting bowl. Four were employee's in our organization and he's it's sustainable. Because if we all drop look for bead we all drop at the same time. We can't provide the service we can broker have the programs. Whatever it is that were meant to to daily off? Aw so that's part of our responsibility as leaders within our hearts issue at some crucial and you even said at the onset when you take care of your people and and I know a lot of people in organizations say customer comes first the client comes. I am a strong advocate. Know your people come I if you take care. Serve your people that are working with you and for you and your organization they will take care of the customer so the clients better than they would have before. And and if you're burning out your staff they're going to leave and we are seeing it just with statistics of how many people Paul are are leaving jobs at a rapid pace because there's other jobs available were an approach employees environment in most markets..

"alphonse" Discussed on Breakfast Leadership

"Welcome to another upset at breakfast leadership. PODCAST it's Michael here and I've got Hala a phones on the line. Follow our and doing good Michael. I'm great great to have young show today. I always I love talking with people that share my passion for helping other people with variety. Different things in particular one of the things is the you help people with is subject that I know very well in my listeners. Know very well on that spurt out so tell us a little bit. Why you got into that space? I I chose to help people with you know fighting. Burn out in being rid of it once and for all and maybe a little bit of your back story on your own burnout destroy Could start by saying that. I've been in the classroom Any the work environment that work for the public service in Canada in a half people coming in and out in the classroom and I see some trends I see some people doing a wing thanks to themselves or on undescended stab working but overdoing in some ways and tolerating SOM- Behavior or some workload issues and things like that and I know it's not sustainable in recognized ad. 'cause I was there I was doing this. The Senate it took its own toll on me and from there on aiming to help not only organisation but individuals. The reality is it's the individuals within the organization that opera pretending keep doing the same cycles. So how do we help them be be better with themselves. They're self management but also management of the environment. Most of the people I work with our managers and leaders orgainzation. So it's Archway R- you'll have to understand the alfio behavior on some trends at you see within your organization. Insulation part of making an organization sustainable is ensuring that we take care of the people any for not doing that then it creates other type of challenges. So that's pretty much the way at enter into that conversation and sometimes eats Could I say on comfortable off double because some people are so ingrained into their behavior that define themselves. Could I say naughty even recognizing when they're going down the path over knelt and even if you tried to get their attention sector is just emperor areas just temporary Arri and then one day. You're no longer see them in the workplace. and You wonder what happened than you'll find out yes. There was a sensitive. The person is on extended. Leave even your allies. That's it you'll burn yourself out so I know that I know that. Oh too well. And you know when people don't recognize that they're burned out or like you said they think it's temporary and spoiler kids three years is not temporary it's that stats stats. Something that's long standing and believe me. You know taking a couple of weeks off of work doesn't fix it as the ingredients. The lead up to your burnout are still there. That's exactly it and the first thing for me in those conversation is to realize. How did that contribute abused to make getting into the burnout? 'cause they're still thinks we do and we don't realize we actually setting ourselves up for it either whether you're a people pleaser or you're trying to showcase what it is that you're so good act and and without realizing Are Too high for the time as we still have. Twenty four hours per day period whichever level whichever task ask whichever goal trying to achieve every single. One of us has twenty four hour per day periods. So if you don't have don't keep enough time time to Could I say resource yourself and Freon that bring 'cause our brain works twenty four seven period period Whether were aware of it or not even when we're sleeping debris keeps working but if you keep Polling or stretching being that brain a moment it's GonNa snap. It's likely lasting band. If you ask stretch it around a big bottle for longtime than inevitable's back activates or regional state a state and that's why burn out as once you overstretch your brain event if you rest you're gonna be seeing the the result of that overstretching for very long time so it requires for you to put boundaries otherwise you'll find yourself l.. Ride back into the same situation where it's a couple of months couple of years later because you happen to change your behavior spot on and even with Mike Mike Bernard which was you know mobile decade ago. Now even I even noticed some symptoms last year and in other places well after launching breakfast leadership and talking with people about boundaries and burnt out and writing a book and all the things that I've done I noticed In the summer of twenty eighteen that I was approaching now. I was nowhere near the state that they needed to be. An Order of. You know I felt when I was completely burnt out but I knew that if I didn't make some adjustments to to my schedule That I was going to be in trouble so what I ended up doing was and this is an exercise that I do all the time as always look ahead. You know three or four months sometime. I'm six months into the year to see what's going on with my schedule and other things going on in historically for me autumn has always been a very very busy time of year when there's a lot of work to be done Everyone comes back from their summer break and they're all full of energy and if you worked all summer are you don't have the energy. They took it all so you're sear literally going okay and everyone's Gung Ho. Let's do this. Let's say you're Straw. Aw Finish the year strong. I'm just hoping to finish the year and in basically I saw that that was going to be a potential social issues so from the podcast standpoint. First thing I did was after about the middle of November. I rescheduled every one of my interviews interviews. So from November fifteenth until I think January eighth or ninth of this year twenty nineteen. I didn't have a single interview. Oh I cancelled or rescheduled the mall and I also blocked off any type of worker trips music. -Ation time all of this kind of stuff. So I'm more or less took the last six weeks of the year off now for somebody. That's a tight bay driven entrepreneur. You you tell somebody I'm taking the last part of the year completely off everyone's like Whoa. How did you do that I I did? That's how that's how I did it because I knew that I needed to do that. Because I anticipated the twenty nineteen was gonna be like a colleague of mine has coined it a very weird word in wild year and he has been spot on so far on how weird and wild this year has been but I enter the year with breath clarity A new approach on how it was gonNA do things. I've already blocked off the last six weeks. Weeks of twenty nineteen for L.. Time Off Bay said yes gas. That's just do that now. Of course I'm also taking some vacation nation time in early November. So I may need to do something that time. But we'll deal with that but it was a case of really establishing boundaries around my I talk and you hit it right on that we all get twenty four hours. What are we going to do with it and something for me is oftentimes? Those perception is helping people realize what they're doing At what are the choices. They're making every day. That is creating a challenge college so sometimes by just going with the flow Not allowing myself to take that distance to to figure out. Is this working for me. I might be able to achieve what I wanted to achieve in. Is this sustainable over a long period of time. and Ed as you said you looked at your story you look at the patch your look at your energy level. Any say need to change that script need to do something different. Need to figure. You're out how do I move forward and if I don't do that it's understanding that abundant pay the price so for me chanting. That's is about making a differential almost every other day it's descents where if something is feeling locker pressure and you realize realize alone. Can I state. 'cause it's not sustainable. The brain is not one of those additional replacement for. Let's put it that that a break one on leg I can use a crutch I can use the other late to help me move forward but guess what there's only one three you'll mess it up. The whole thing shuts out and that's what is burnout. That's a great great description of it and it's amazing how often people get into the state and and and you know this because you work in the space. It's not something that happens overnight but you did mention since something earlier that jumped out at me. You mentioned the comment of people pleasing. And you know. There's books that came out. In two thousand Rosen one disease to please and I read that book. Actually I read it during my My little end of year holiday and it hit me and I'm like Oh okay and when you get that awareness of self me realize all right eight and I found a new ingredient to what led up to my burn out. It really hit home. I see that a lot with with people that burn out. They tend to be those that want to please people either from getting the positive affirmation or may be. They grew up in an environment where there was a lot of narcissism or NC or your name and all kinds of different challenges and or a type A personality -ality that unfortunately got addicted to the relates. So You keep doing it because you want those accolades but you're not. You're not taking the time to actually Sri enjoy life is. You're so busy just working in when you know. Work with people especially executives or managers are putting in insane hours at work. I tell them you know pictures of your kids. If they have children on your desk in often I say yeah. Yeah that's like I do. I said well what I want you to do. Speaker out a way to spend more time looking at them face to face instead of looking at five year pictures of Oh and that gets their attention a little bit. I'm telling you you blink and your first child you bring home next thing you know. They're about ready to graduate together driver's license. They'RE GONNA move in New York and you're like how wait a minute. How can that be or this is funny thing to how quickly time flies? I was in Chicago. Speaking on a physician burnout topic Healthier conference and I lived in Chicago for about six years so I flipped on the news to turn it on and I see some similar news. Reporters and anchors and all that but there twenty years older and it really messed with my brain for a moment because what happened to them and I realized I left twenty many years ago. That's what happens though they got older. Take a look in the Mirror Mike. Guess what do crowd you know. Yeah Yeah and and your brain for some reason time passes but there are certain elements of things really. Don't time that can't be possible..

"KCRW sponsors include southwestern law, schools, Biedermann, entertainment and media law institute study, entertainment and get a law degree in two three or four years apply or take the virtual tour S W law dot EDU slash KCRW. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt Hollywood is talking about the Atlantic's expose on Bryan singer. And we have covered Bryan singer, many people have taken a swing at trying to write the definitive expose on Bryan singer. It took these reporters a year to write this article. But finally, they have an on the record source and some who are not on the record who are alleging that Bryan singer raped them when they were underage, and it the question now is what if anything will happen, right because this expose has dropped not only in the middle of an Oscar race where a film that is still credit. Wanted to Brian singer as the director bohemian rhapsody, even though he was fired off the project is now in the mix for best picture and best actor among others at the Oscars and Bryan singer had lined up more work. He was scheduled to direct this red Sonja movie for a substantial pay day for millennium films that we'll see if that ever happens now. Yeah. I mean, the broader question, of course, also goes to the culture of Hollywood because I would argue that the the whispers and more than whispers about Bryan singer were as prevalent in Hollywood as the whispers about Harvey Weinstein. I think it was as much of an open secret probably for just about as long and we've written stories where we've kind of skittered up to the edge of this kind of allegation, but it has been very very difficult and again credit to these reporters to get anybody to go on the record even two or even to talk in detail and offer credible allegations off the records because that is when you offer aid because when you off. For details that identifies you, and I I know from doing these stories people, even when they are told they can speak without their names being used are afraid of identifying details and afraid of retaliation. We should say that Bryan singer has denied these allegations. And he has called them, homophobic. You know, the the Bryan singer case was always interesting because so much of the claims centered around this company called den D E N that was a kind of early first internet, boom company and the CEO of that company was a good friend of Brian singers and later was accused of sexual assault and pled guilty and is now a registered sex offender. But there was a mansion that was associated with that company where all sorts of things were alleged to have gone on. And Bryan singer was a big part of that. And there was a case about four or five years ago where somebody that actually sued Bryan singer and court made pretty scandalous. Allegations against him. And that case ultimately fell apart, and the plaintiff was found to have made up some things. So because that particular case fell apart a lot of people kind of shied away from the Bryan singer story. And ultimately he was found to have some inconsistencies in some of his allegations. They were dismissed, and because of that Bryan singer has always been able to say since then that he was falsely accused and that, you know, people have kind of shied away from him because of the bizarre nature of that initial claim. But no longer I will note that others who are who are also named by that accuser have subsequently been named by others who were on the record. And so Brian singer is not the only one in that circle who has been accused, credibly. I would say, and I will also say that many of these people who are assaulted and victimized are damaged, and it is then easy to discredit them later as this article points out it's reminds me a little bit of. Of you know, Scientology, they always have people come in and say, well, these people were damaged and they're liars. Well, there that's probably why they were insci- Haji when you've been the victim of an assault. Maybe there are behaviors later drug problems emotional problems that make it easy to say, you're not credible. And that is one of the central problems in getting these cases resolved.
