"Doctor amar pattani patani joins us now. He's that doctor that I go to and we talk about sometimes from Main Street smiles and Barrington. Doctor, welcome to the show. Hey John, thanks for having me. Do you want me to look you up on chat GPT and say see what it says about you? I'm afraid it's going to be not very knowledgeable. I'm not quite as famous as you guys are. Yeah, but you're an interesting fella. I mean, I met your lovely family, including your fun brother at the Blackhawks game via the day. And he was telling me more about you than you tell me about you. Some little afraid afraid to hear some of that. Here's what we now know about doctor patani. And it's stuff we already knew that you were an electrical engineer. You were a consultant, and then one day you told your family, I want to change careers and they thought, yeah, well, we know you're going to go where the money is. You're going to go be a financial guy or something like that. And you said I want to be a dentist. And they're like, wait, what? You're an engineer. You're a consultant. You want to go back to med school? That's all true, right, Doc? Yeah, it is. And actually, I would say now that I'm a dentist and have been a dentist for quite a while. There is a good link between engineering and dentistry. Dentistry and teeth are all about structures and mechanics and forces and processes. So I see an easy leap between the two. I know you do. I guess that's one of the reasons why you like to do all the work yourself as well, right? All of the hardware, braces, building crowns, stuff like that, right? Yeah, I think what differentiates us here at the practice. And one of the things I feel like I can bring to the table is a comprehensive view of a patient so that when they're in our office, I take a look at everything. So it's not like I'm looking just for cavities or I'm just looking for tooth alignment or I'm just looking for periodontal disease. But we're looking at everything because in the end, we want to give you a treatment plan that covers everything you need to get to where you want to be. And for me personally, that means you not worrying about your teeth. Let us do the worrying about your teeth. You go and enjoy your life and eat what you want to eat. And we'll take care of the rest. Okay, so I saw an article that talked about flossing and its connection to heart health. And I've heard about that before, but I still don't think I get it. How in the world does it said that if you do not floss regularly, you can actually injure your heart or your arteries, that that would somehow be bad for your cardiovascular health. Am I reading that correct, Doc? Yeah, so I mean, we get into a little bit of the causation versus correlation in this topic. And it's still not totally clear if there is a direct link to heart disease from flossing or from periodontal disease, which is what flossing helps to prevent in the mouth, but there's long been a suspicion that it's related. When we talk about correlation, people that, in general, take better care of their teeth, take better care of their mouths, our flossing and brushing. Probably have healthy habits like they eat better. They exercise more. They visit the doctor. They visit the dentist and so that's more of a correlation in why they may have a decreased risk for cardiovascular health. It is shown that there is if you have periodontal disease, you are two to three times as likely to have a heart attack, a stroke or another cardiovascular event. So there's definitely a correlation there. As far as the causation, we know that periodontal disease is caused by inflammation of the periodontium, which is all the tissue. So your gums and your bone that support your teeth. So your teeth are held in your mouth by your gum and your bone. And when your gums get inflamed, we call that gingivitis. And that's the early stages of periodontal disease. So inflammation in the gums, gingivitis, and then if it's not taken care of if you're not brushing and flossing enough, if you're not seeing your dentist, then that can progress to what's called periodontal disease, which is where we start to have what's called attachment loss and where your teeth are not held in as strongly by the gums and by the bone and eventually you'll have bone loss around your teeth. So it can become a very big problem, especially if it's neglected. Sure, but that does not get me to a heart health unless maybe isn't the tissue around the gums the same as the tissue in your arteries and veins or something like that. It's similar, right? So soft tissue, it's part of the mucosa in your mouth and your arteries. There is the inflammation process is similar. So again, there is some thought that it's possible that the bacteria in your mouth can cause acute inflammation in your gums. And that can then become more systemic. And so the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and then start to affect the tissue directly in the arteries and the veins. That's what I've heard. That's it. So if you develop this stuff, this bacteria in your mouth is now in your system. And now it's circulating throughout you. And if the tissues are the same, then the end of that you don't floss actually imperils your cardiovascular system. That does not sound like a leap to me, doctor patani. Yeah, so and I think it's why it's long been thought that there's a relationship, but I think it's still not directly shown as a direct cause because there's plenty of people that have gum disease that have periodontal disease that don't have cardiovascular problems. And there's plenty of people with cardiovascular problems that don't have periodontal disease. So I think there's more research being done now to show more of a direct link between the two, but there is long thought to be a link between not only cardiovascular disease and oral health, but diabetes and oral health, kidney disease, neural health. So our bodies, they work

"What's the opposite. Ask clarifying questions of people a time you about the situation. Also statements of empathy. Gosh that must be really hard to go through can. Can you tell me more or anything else like that happened. See what i mean. Instead of trying to switch the subject you go deeper into what they're experiencing which the business benefit by the way larry but but the benefit is the more somebody feels and emotion or strong feeling the more likely they are to take action that will help themselves and so in a way. You don't want people to not fully express how they're feeling because they'll basically repressed in suppress what they're doing and might not take action than they stuck in the problem so you're not helping them by changing the subject or or immediately going to the logical solution. Let them have their experience. Let them feel understood empathized with and they'll trust you more plus.

"That's kinda round and flat that can fit over your heart. 'cause 'cause that way if your stomach sleeper like i am you can still use it Over your heart. And i'm telling you there are times when my heart was beating so rapidly because i was so stressed out about something going on in my life and within five to ten minutes it slowed down my heartbeat and it might sound crazy. Might sound insane but added a couple of years that this has worked this way and it's just amazing. That is really cool. I've never. I've never tried them while sleeping. I have a few crystals at home. That partly i got the kind of the same thought that. Hey if they work great if they don't they look nice. It's nice on my coffee table. But i have. You know even just held them during a meditation before i found. Sometimes that can be really impactful for me yet. Another great to us that way but as far as sleep. I'd say the three best places are over your heart your solar plexus which is like the center of your chest and also right underneath your neck but for me. I found that that the heart one works the best. I'm definitely going to try that. That sow and that's something that you know again. It's so easy to implement. Well especially being in the in the phoenix area. You're not too far from sedona but it isn't too hard to go out and to find you know maybe a crystal. That really speaks to you and to try and to try it and worst case. If it really doesn't work you have something that looks very nice and you really didn't hurt anything by trying worst case you have a decoration these days you can even get these on amazon so i would love to know for you. As as an attorney having this focus on trauma i would imagine. This has a major impact on how you interact with clients. And i'd love to know how how this plays into your law practice and what lessons you've learned toward dealing with others that maybe we can all implement our own lives definitely like i was saying earlier. We need to understand that that most people are dealing with some level of drama. So in my practice this is up both myself in. I've also trained. My team in these mindsets is understand when somebody's traumatized. Oftentimes they had a chaotic childhood. Where they feel like they don't have control and then in adulthood there can be life events that also trigger that lack of feeling of control. Which throws you into fight or flight and so let's say you buy a brand new vehicle. Why do most people buy a brand new vehicle. They pay that premium.

"You know a divorce being cheated on being stolen from business all kinds of things so you still have to do the work you. You can't expect for any magic pillar elixir to fix you. Although like i said some of these methods can help get you to another level by with combo. The amazing thing about it is. You're kind of out of it for a couple of days and then on likes the third or fourth day you wake up in your trauma. I kid you not. The toronto level is cut at least for me. It was cut in half ralph izzo. Let's say you're at eight it brings you down to four now or a four or five and like sometimes the the effect can wear off over time. But it's just you feel so much of the stuff just literally ripped out of you and just gone and it's really incredible but to sustain it. Then you need to do the. The daily method that that will talk about so as an same disclaimer with combo. Combo actually legal so far at least in the us. I believe it's legal but but it's a very physically demanding thing to go through. I also strongly and again doctor. But i strongly advise not to do combo more than once a day from the physical problems that have heard people. Have they do combo multiple times. A day. that to me is insane as you can tell from the wad Today is bleeding. Yeah because it could also cause depletion of electrolytes sodium and which is dangerous and so if anybody does that again confer with your doctor. Make sure you're healthy enough. Never ever do it more than once. In the day in fact i recommend it just like the plant medicines. Do not do it too often. Use it to help you get better place. And then use the other methods to sustain where you've got so as far as those other day. Today methods big proponent of women have breathing with cold exposure. You can do the breathing method alone but it works better. When combined with cold exposure and that is a breathing technique developed by off. He learned it from some tibetan monks and wim hof is this kind of healing guru he. He's from holland. I believe looks like a homeless guy. Thinks or hiking high mountains with no shirt on for most people are like that that's powerful. This method is and the good thing about cold exposure. I'll be frank with you my least favorite thing other than throwing up. Thanks combo is old. Exposure had do not like being called in fact. I detest being cold. So if you're out there in your thinking no way no how. I don't like being cold. Here's the other thing that you need to consider. Are you willing to go through some in intermittent short term pain for a lifetime of less emotional pain or do you just prefer the lifetime of emotional pain for me personally. It was an easy choice.

"Let's talk about some trauma. Processing releasing in healing methods one is trauma. Release exercises were tre. These were developed by. Dr david. berselli shoutout to him. He has a couple of bucks one. I believe it's called. Shake the pain away. The other thing is the revolutionary trauma released process in. what he came up with was exercises that basically fatigue. You're so as muscles and once you do that your body involuntarily shakes and that's actually a good thing. I don't know if you've ever seen somebody after a car accident on the side of the road. They have a blanket on in their kind of shaking. That's actually the body's natural way of healing processing and releasing trauma and you'll even see animals if they're attacked or again fight afterwards kind of shake it out. That's that same thing. So that's what these exercises do. And my memory's correct. I believe he had kind of a process. Where where you do the exercises thirty straight days but then after that you only do it once or twice a week her at least a couple of times a month and those exercises are not easy. Like i'll give you an example of when the exercises it's kind of it's kind of like sitting in a roman share position against the wall until your legs kinda start quivering but not just that like your arms will start shaking the rest of your body. You'll start shaking. There's various exercises like that. Like i said will fatigued. You're so as muscles cause that involuntary shaking shaking does is it releases trauma from your nervous system and from your bio energetic field so that helps to get out really deep-rooted trauma and what most people don't understand is your traumas not just in your brain. It's actually in your actual physical body in your nervous system like your whole body traps trauma and there's a book called. The body keeps the score about trauma the highly recommend. And there's also john sarno work about a back pain believe he did a couple of bucks and what his work talks about. How emotional tension gets stored in our muscles and can actually cause severe severe pain issues. Even physical maladies. And so what you need to know. Is that a large percentage of illness. High can't quantify the exact percentage a large percentage of illness is actually caused by emotional pain by trauma. Look at the name disease. What's in the name. dis ease. Because what happens is when nervous system is constantly running on the red line. What do you think would happen to your car even if it was a lamborghini if you're constantly running it on the red line it's going to break down exactly so people who are traumatized they tend to be trapped in fight flight or freeze and that state is easily triggered when my trauma was at its worst i was in fight flight or freeze almost twenty four seven..

"That does is it actually magnifies the pain so instead you gotta turn to that inner part of yourself typically. It's it's yourself as a young child and instead of abandoning yourself. Turn towards yourself. Give yourself compassion. Give yourself love. give yourself empathy. So how do you do that. If you're feeling scared which you can say is like i said once you're able to imagine the source of that speak to your younger scared self hands a you know what it's okay to be scared. I'm here for you. i'll never leave you. I'll be here with you as long as you need. And just speak to yourself compassionately like that like you would best friend or lover or a young child where oftentimes so much more compassionate with others than we are with ourselves but the most important relationship in our life is the relationship with ourselves. I completely agree with that. And i do think that when we turn to ourselves more externally and thinking about i love the idea of that young child version of ourselves. I think that does make us a lot more compassionate because when we speak to ourselves as ourselves i think it can be so tempting to expect more of yourself than you would have your friends of your loved ones of a child and sometimes i think that is just kind of setting us up for failure because we may never live up to the expectation that we that we have for ourselves but to be speaking ourselves as that child under. Have that compassion. I think is incredibly important. You talk to me about the role that trauma please for people on a day-to-day basis. I would venture to say that in. Like i'm not a scientist. I don't have a double blind placebo. Controlled study with that being said just based on personal experience and what other people have told me in. Just the behaviors that seen the news in the media. I would say at least seventy to eighty percent of people are traumatized now the degree that various some people are severely traumatized. Some people are somewhat traumatized in some people only have a few traumat- challenges but i can confidently should say that. It's a a massive proportion of the general public.

"Year old daughter and nor your parents are really. They did the best. They could with the tools that they had so again. This is not to blast my parents at all. It's just to give context of the sources my trauma and my father. Particularity passed away last year. He had severe borderline personality disorder or bpd and that is is it's a disorder where the person lacks emotional self control and so they can fly into rages at very little or even no provocation by no provocation. I mean no provocation. In the moment they might just remember something that it happened a previous time in start to go beserk about it and it's very very difficult to to live with a person who has bp especially as a child. It's very similar to kind of alcoholic behavior even even though the person is not drinking and that makes sense because my my grandfather was was an alcoholic was a holocaust survivor and severely traumatized my dad. That's why he did what what he did. And then he did the best he could. He had it worse than i did. Be that as it. May anything could set him off. Kids are stumbling. I would spill things and he would just go beserk and start screaming at me and he would also just get really angry. You're basically walking on eggshells. You you never knew what could set my father off. And that caused severe traumas well and and some really negative internal beliefs. So you see. These are all sources of trauma where nobody got killed. Nobody got physically assaulted cumulatively over time that is it's kind of a stair step process if you have even lower level trauma but it's repeated and it happens over a long period of time years. It accumulates it's not like it just dissipates. And so because of that over time it can actually be just a severe or more severe than what we traditionally views trauma like a a single major traumatic event and the result is basically the same..

I love your website if you're talking about being minimal and simplistic and getting the point across whoever did that did a genius job. Then we try. We try to make sure we're on message of simple as best. Isn't that always the case. It's a but sometimes we have this need but you don't understand the needs to be fancy we need to do this and we ended up muddling the message. What do you think that human need is to look more pretty than we are. Sometimes we kind of muddle things. I'm not sure it's necessarily about looking pretty as much as we always are looking for more complicated thing when i was a teenager. I was a magician. Did a lot of magic shows and learned a lot more about psychology. Doing that than i ever did in graduate school or anywhere else and one of the things that always surprised me is the complicated ways people would come up with house ruin metric sometimes was a very simple straightforward thing and they would come up with the most convoluted ways to explain it in that.

Thanks very much gentleman that amar doman the new owner of the british columbia lions and while that was extremely impressive on a lot of fronts. I love the are. I love the answers about ticket prices in game day presentation because those are probably the two most heavily criticized elements about the lions.

We've been talking about a sale for this club for the better part of the decade. It's kind of inevitable Which was never ever going to happen. It was never going to happen but in the ten months since david released passing for them to executed the sale. I mean think of how messy montreal. What's there were multiple for sure. Buyers meeting won miss before the team actually got so at a game at edmonds because they brought him in. That sale was messy. This has happened to intend much and really less than that when they went through in a state process of ready to sell it and they got a big time guy with with big pockets and big respect to buy the team. That's not only good for the bc lines. That's good for the entire canadian football league because you're will be other teams for sale about amar before this. I did not know it. you know. i've been digging on this. And i knew of three other potential buyers and this is one i didn't know about and and i'm ashamed of myself because he's been interested in buying the team for some time you know. He'd had conversations with david early while he was still alive. And it's i don't think i'm the only this under but i'm disappointed in myself. Where does your mind going dream of big things. We saw people always going to build a new stadium big dreams what. What's realistic for for lions vance. Well first of all. Like i love that i can do say thirty thousand in the stadium is realistic. And maybe i'm naive. But they were close to that seven years ago and i throw that out there a lot because seven years is not a generation. This is not toronto. it hasn't fallen that'd be it's fallen far but it hasn't fallen for that law so connect with those people seven years ago right just to the people in the buildings to it looks better when the younger you want. Actually check long-term can right. I mean it was years ago in twenty eighteen. When five thousand fans came into that building to say goodbye to wally waldo right and they worked there as you were talking about when matt was away. You know i. It wasn't people that were there for a fifty fifty there for a concert. They were there because of football reason right so you have to believe at least those people are out there that you could bring in for a star with so. I just don't think this is as far gone as as a toronto situation. If you can get there but how about this how about you. Take the practice facility out of surrey. I know that one of the previous ownership possible groups about fourteen years is a place that you know. Maybe we can take this venue over when it workout during cold it. You know we. We all loved everything was in that facility even with the raptors were in there for training camp and all the other sport related businesses. That were there. What if we had over and put the lions operations in the bottom and you had retail around that and you've got field space hulk for sport already. That's there as opposed to wally right. And we all know what's around the lions practice facility. Put it closer to a business center. You put some put a fresh coat of paint on it. And just made the operations of this franchise look little different just the optics around that i mean look. Are we going to build a new stadium for nine. Cfl games right. It doesn't work that way..

"In my lifetime amendments were proposed to make marriage only one man and one woman george w bush proposed such a thing and and and have majorities but not super majorities to actually succeed. There was an amendment proposed to make flag burning a crime. I think that's a mistake because it cuts into free speech and that's a bad thing so i've changed my mind on that now and on. Era i i'm in favor of emphatically. I think we should do it today. But you and. I agree today that we're going to try to get people to be motivated by truth. Be told it won't make that much of a difference in what courts do because courts have properly construed the fourteenth amendment to provide for women's equality and gay quality as well as racial equality. But i'd rather have it explicit in the constitution has just been here. Because i feel like i'm hearing two different arguments from you and tell me tell me if there if i'm mishearing this because on the one hand you are championing celebrating in this book. The conversation that went on in the eighteenth century to craft this idea of america and on the other hand. Now you're saying well. I also don't want it to be too easy to modify the constitution. Do you not have faith in the in the in the nation's ability now to have those same empowering conversations over the governing laws of the land. Oh i do but remember. The immediately added ten amendments to the constitution within two years of ratifying the thing so constitutional amendment is not impossible. They added ten right after ratifying. My claim is. They made amendments difficult to do compared to ordinary legislation and that was actually a feature not a bug that interns out. I now think a good thing. We shouldn't emend our document unless there's deep consensus about the direction of amendment and the problem right now in america is there's not sufficient consensus to actually move us strongly one way in one direction or the other so given that we should be hesitant because remember the losers in any amendment process are part of the society as well and if you if you lightly emend fifty one forty nine. That doesn't always actually work out. So also that's why. I changed my mind on this overtime. Okay now think. It's wise to require a strong consensus before we amend but not an impossible consensus and almost all the amendments we've added have been really good ones and none have been bad ones. And that's and that's not true at the state level. Where it's too easy to amend is there is there a lack of consensus nationally or the appearance of the lack of consensus because and the appearance because of something else in the constitution for like the way government is structured in the constitution. And and here's why. I ask that because there are constitutional scholars out there who would say that the united states right now at the federal level their argument is for example is looking both at constitutional scholars who've been published by the hoover institution and on the right and the nation on the left. So right who would say that. For example the nation is poorly governed right now because of the way congress is structured. You call you talked about mala portion men but that congress in fact is not actually even wired down to the level of what's written in the constitution to solve problems of national interest because it's built it's built to avoid the tyranny of the majority and instead it's wired to then allow parochial legislators to ansel answer to only their own local special interest. So you will never have the appearance of consensus for big issues of of national import of which we face far more. Today i would argue in the twenty first century than we ever did in the eighteenth century. Well i in my lifetime. We amended the constitution multiple times In the nineteen sixties so. I don't think the fats look. It's easy to blame the competition rather than looking the mirror and blame ourselves. Okay here at the fundamental problem in my view is that some. My fellow citizens are kind of crazy and until they get over that this is where we began with with with this chaney. The problem isn't the constitution. The problem is that there are lots of people today who are moving wanting move us in the wrong direction and no constitution that wants to be democratic can solve that problem just with a magic wand. The problem isn't i would say the structure of congress which is not a problem the nineteen sixties when we you know did amendments or the nineteen when we did amendments or the eighteen sixties when we did amendments or the eighteen the early eighteen hundreds when we we did amendment to the seventeen ninety s when we did a members. The problem is not the structure of constitutional amendment. The problem is today to many of my fellow citizens. Actually i would say have Unfortunate ideas and until we actually start talking to each other more and listening to each other better. We can't go forward it but you can't blame the constitution. You have to look in the mirror. I would agree in terms of the the danger of the lack of of meaningful open minded conversation this country completely and at the same time though again the very the very same thing that that leads you to call the con- the constitution. A hinge point in all of human history is the power of its initial ideas and how they set the template for what for this nation. Okay and i guess. What i'm saying is i think it ought to be easier for us to change that or adjust that template and look. I'm gonna. I'm gonna lean thomas. Jefferson himself wasn't at jefferson. Who said that. No society can make a perpetual constitution that the earth should belong to the living jenner mock and i mock him savagely in the book because he was an airhead on some of these things and so be careful what you wish for my friend because john boehner was speaker of the house and if he can just at any given moment amend the constitution because he's got a simple majority or kevin mccarthy or newt gingrich Then you know you might not like some of these amendments so thomas jefferson wasn't even there in seventeen eighty eight. He said a lot of silly things. Thank god he was a hypocrite. So i say in the book. He has to flaws. He's too much of a utopian but he's also a hypocrite and these flaws actually cancel out because some of his ideas were actually silly ones and and his idea that the constitution should lapse every nineteen. Years was actually a bad idea. Madison was horrified by it. I discuss it in pretty great data and i changed my mind and all these things. If you talk to me forty years ago. I would have said you know if i ever have a son. I'm going to name him jefferson because he's my hero. But i've changed my mind on those things because i've come to sort of see some of the complexities and maybe i've just gotten old and and crotchety. That's that's the other possible. Does as well. So i don't. I am not diminishing the the importance the urgent importance of the emergence of a very influential wing of the republican party slash. I would say the entire republican party. Now that is beholden to beliefs that undermined the constitution that that is an emergency situation. And i'm not diminishing it at the same time though. I think that. I'm just going to keep pushing this professor. If you forgive me right now this is a conversation. Yeah because i i i hear you saying that. I'm not arguing arguing for transformation of the fundamentals of what's in the constitution but by not allowing a document to be go through the process that conversational process of modernisation. You end up with the kind of constitutional calcification don't you. I mean some of your critics from not of you but of the constitution from the left who say well the very fear that the john banners and and mitch mcconnell's of the world might propose amendments that we don't like i mean that is what's leading can lead to the frozen democracy which has also been brittle one is it not. I know there are people who say that due respect. I know them extremely while. I read everything they written in. They're wrong okay. So i'll say it a different way again. I have testified on multiple constitutional amendments in congress. Here the ones. I've testified on amendments. That would have had changed the first amendment so that the government can put someone in prison for protesting government action by burning a flag and that that had.

"amar" Discussed on Wash FM 97.1
"I'm Toby now belong with Chili Amar. Thank you for waking up with us. You know the other day it might have been last week They were talking about how people would give up intimacy to hang out on Zillow and look at houses. Yeah. Real estate surfing will call it that. Yeah, well, I feel like I've I've got a confession to make, because I've been doing some of this real estate stalking myself, but it's not that I've been stalking new houses to buy. I've been checking up on my childhood home in Katie, Texas, which is like a Rockville to Washington, D C. Does anybody you know, live in that house. We're not talking about your grandma's home, right? No. No separate place Grandmother's house That's in Corpus. That's the family house. This is the place where I remember growing up. I remember that. That's what I want Elementary school and I walked home from elementary school and then middle school even up in the high school, And then we moved to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania when I was high school. But now that everything is so out there If you know somebody's name, you know somebody's address you know about where they live. You could tell how much the house is worth. You can even get a virtual tour of the house. Maybe it's not completely up to date, but you can learn a lot about people because of these these real estate sites. So I have to confess that I've been stalking my old stomping grounds and I don't know who it is that owns the house now, but I love what they've done with the place. So you were looking inside photos and such. Did they change it much? Because if you have a home in the D M B, there's a good chance they tore down and built a McMansion. Oh, no, no, no. Where I grew up. You actually get yard They apparently they tour down the fort that my parents built in the backyard. That's On but the pecan trees and different trees there, remember, we planted his kids. One of them acted as second base when we would play baseball in the backyard that they've grown huge now And then my dad built this kind of awning over the back patio that is still there. But inside the house chili they put in hardwood floors, new carpet they put in new stuff for the For the for the living room, and the kitchen looks amazing. And then there's a little like a cocktail island. What do they call it? The wet bar. I have serious faux mo that I did not get to grow up in this house because of whomever did whatever to it If it were to go on sale, Would you even consider buying it? Because the real estate price and Katy Texas is probably a little bit better than Rockville. George $240,000 for three bedrooms, two baths and a two car garage. You kidding me? How much do you think? How much house do you think that would get anywhere around here? Yeah. What house? Bingo. Bingo. Bingo. If that anyway, I don't know. I just thought I'd bring that up and confess that because you know, I haven't stalking my old playground as it were, And I know that I can't be alone. So if you have feel free to.

Are Republicans or Democrats better for the stock market?
"When you're thinking about current events. We don't really know for sure how everything is going to play out at this point. I mean, we know that binds in the White House Democrats not have the tiebreaker, and Kamila Harris, the vice president, tied 50 50 there. And then, of course, the Democrats controlled by the Congress, House representatives controlled by the Democrats as well. Does the market really care if it's the Republican part of the Democratic Party? Do they are this Amar the markets More concerned with What are the policy's going to be? Maybe? Yeah, I think there's a lot of interesting is going on. Obviously a couple, you know, obviously what goes on in D. C. It's very disturbing, I guess, And it's easy for people get caught up in the noise and feel unsettled, right and the reality. It does build anxiety. And as things seem unsettled, so you know, I want to try to put some things in perspective because What I talk about with my clients and what I see happening, what's important to focus on But the reality is is Yeah. What do we know? Well, the Democrats have the majority and all three branches. But what's important, understand about all this is the market's care about policy, not party. It always has. And so when it comes to policy, bad policy is bad policy but is gonna wait and see what happens. We don't know what policies they're gonna roll out. Now. Our fear is that we'll get we'll swing way too far one way to the left for people and create some bad policies. Whatever. But the reality is is that's probably not going to happen. I mean, we are in the middle of a pandemic. Mark, you know, so Realities is what's happening now on what we see is because of that. What's going to be coming for sure is more stimulus. So we are going to have more stimulus. We're gonna have more checks. We're gonna have some stimulus on infrastructure spending and no tie those type of things. And so that's something that the market actually likes. Because in the pandemic We've created a You know, a situation where the government has to step in and you know, create the stimulus. So the markets waiting for that, But we're definitely going to see more

I don't consult alrighty. I i give writing tips. I do inclusion diversity Address myself at the beginning of this. I i am doing this Out of a long day at work at a starbucks and back to back meetings at cure. Because i am just really happy to talk to you. I know you're looking like are you sure about that. Because you're you look confused all tie. No no i mean that's all about. I like to goof off. But i mean really before. We even started talking about this. You mentioned that you're also from texas. And i think that is wonderful. Because like i've been interviewing a lot of diverse creatives of backgrounds and zoe's like okay. That's awesome does meaning people from other world but what about here in texas and do you think in your life. I numbers making up words. I i was like in your love. I'm like wait. what did i just say. I noticed that you had a guy in the background. And he's probably like hearing the other rooms like what is she talking do. That's my cousin and hell walk by.

My husband normally walks walks by sometimes or if or if he sees my light on. He knows on recording. Sometimes they'll just crawl behind instead of cameo appearances will put those bunny ears would be. I don't think people do that anymore. They just put fingers right behind someone that orca. Let me rewind again. You are a creative content writer up there right yes howard. How did you start writing like what. What's the origin of your creative passion. Said i really started in high school. Just wanting to ride more creative Creatively n I was in english class. And i hate writing prompts. That had no meeting. So i started to just Free hand right stuff and they're like oh your writings pretty good. We think you should enter it in a magazine so i entered in the school magazine one apprised etc and. It was a way for me to be therapeutic back then. Could to just get your thoughts out of your head onto paper in the creative juices. Just begin flowing in you know one thing led to another and i was riding on and off in. I left it alone for a bit in about. Let's see three years ago. I picked it back up then. Just being going solid and little did i know book was inside of me. What book was that chocolate. Drop in corporate america from the pit to the palace. so this is my lovely or yesterday The front design of. I mean so i mean i want to ask about cover are which i think. It's an interesting subject for authors. How did you design or like Create that particular heart because you see a lot of figures in the foreground Again you show the bargain. Yes yeah yeah like you see like a diverse group of people With one of of bloopers here. Because i i'm i'm on a roll on these different things but i do like the unification of this because this is something that i'm hoping organiser cousin fatal can it is where are you. Oh i thought a cedric. No that's good but is what was the sort of the inspiration behind that book in particular so mainly just talking about inclusion diversity. There's a world in the background to represent that the issues that we face in america can happen worldwide. It's just that we need to be open. An appearance about it. Really talk about the trials and tribulations that a lot of us face whether it's personal or professional than i had people from all nationalities as well as different career feels so different industries to let people know no matter what industry you are in like. We have all went through something in life where we have been slided whether it was through ageism sexism. Racism systemic racism oppression or whatever the case may be. There has been times where we felt like. We did not along due to the way that he would treat it as or reffell like we were overlooked. Because people said okay your resume stand out or we feel like you're overqualified or your underqualified or we're not going to hire you because you're just you know you're not the right fit for the position for whatever reason and then they give you a answering your light what that doesn't make any sense so that's why you see. The diverse group on the cover of the book and the title of the book is called chocolate drop in corporate america which is controversial to sam. But once you really look at the entire cover are in you see okay. The title says this but the cover shows inclusion diversity in it also shows a world. I wanted people to double take in say okay. I wonder what this book is about. Let me pick this book. Up if i get unraveling and then the subtitle is from the pit to the palace because sometimes we have to go through dark seasons in our life in order to appreciate the the brightness and to appreciate the glory days
"amar" Discussed on KTTH 770AM
"Incitement of Amar, but the capital was the most dangerous crime ever committed by a president Democratic. Rep. Jamie Raskin said Sunday the storming of the capital was part of Trump's effort to dismantle and overturn Joe Biden's election victory. Democrats have not yet said when they will send the impeachment article to the Senate, which is needed before Trump's trial could begin a spokesperson for President Trump dismissing the effort, calling it quote an impeachment hoax. Plus thousands of National Guard troops heading to Washington, D. C. Are getting vetted because some defense officials are concerned about a possible attack. During President elect Joe Biden's inauguration. National Guard troops are all over Washington Manning checkpoints on just about every downtown straight ahead of the inauguration. But defense officials are concerned about an insider attack from the troops. So the FBI is checking the backgrounds of each one. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy says he's Warren commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within the ranks and that there is no place for extremism in the military about 25,000 troops are expected. To be here for the ceremony. That's at least 2.5 times more than other inaugurals. Fox's Jill NATO and the Army issued a statement tonight saying the D C National Guard is also providing additional training to service members as they arrive in D.

Why Is My Email Marketing Not Working?
"Let's dive into this and let's talk about why your email marketing isn't working if you're listening to this and you just feel a bit disheartened by the you know you send an email and maybe it's it's like to me just feel like nobody cares. Nobody loves you. nobody's listening. Nobody's buying anything. That's the worst bit and you just feel like it's just not working. That's what we want to talk about here today. I think the first thing we need to do is talk about what is not working. What does that mean. 'cause i think if there's a bunch of different people listening to this with different who all think in their email marketing is not working that might be triggered by different things. Maybe somebody sending emails literally. Nobody's opening them. Maybe somebody else's sending emails and lose people opening them but they're not getting any sales so i suppose let's dig into some of the possible options here are about what people might think of as not working. Yeah i mean. This isn't that we talk to league members about. Isn't it like every month whom you've got. We have to group. Coaching calls a month and pretty much every session. Somebody comes across and says they spit not working. And so we say okay. That's nice what do you mean by not working. And i think the first thing we've got to remember is a lot of us look at open rates as a signal as to whether your email marketing is not working. How do people are opening our emails. The problem with that is it's not that useful a metric. it's well it's not totally unuseful. We have talked about in previous episodes. The reason that we obsessed with an open rates is because it's the big number that the amar in platform shows us because they have that data to some degree. So i think open rates is probably not a good indicator that it's not working. The the point is interesting is if they suddenly started plummeting so if your open rate is x. percent and let's say it's twenty percent and then suddenly it goes to eighteen. Then it's fifteen than it's just saying this declining open rate then. That's a trend. Definitely take up. What are they going. Remember is this question which we get in the free facebook group that you will mark community and all over. The place is what's a good open rate. We probably see that a couple of times a month over in the group right under the answer is always the same. The reasonable like no. It's not a nice answer right. It's not what anybody wants to hear. But we gotta remember the business and email marketing. That goes with. It is a one player game. That's a really important thing to think about email. I'm business all of that. It is a one player game. You are your numbers. Is your revenue up. Is your prophet up. Is your open rate up on what your numbers doing in your business and the only aim of your game that your plan right now is to increase your numbers. Whatever you're starting out you might be at a sixty percent open rate that we talked about with guests in the past who've had that all u continuing to maintain that and sometimes you're going to see declines because of those we'll get into in a second so let's forget about open rates as an indicate a directly of whether it's work or not fact. We have a different number that we like to actually consider think. Yeah just before we talk about that. Think the other thing that's interesting about open. Rates is the most people are expecting too much from their email straightaway. So like we've had people come onto our into our hotline coaching calls in the league. Or just you know. Talk to us events. And they've said things like i've got only sixty percent of my people opened my emails. And what they mean by that. Is there's a whopping forty percent of people that's four hundred out of every thousand the not opening my emails and they feel like that's a catastrophe and actually that's in most industries would be considered an almighty big open. So i think again. Don't expect too much from your email if you are just getting started and you're really looking at this and you're kind if you think you number is low because you you know what are the people's must be by you know surely it's going to be higher than that. So that's the first thing is doing this heart until you've at least investigates find okay. Great book what other other people in my marketplace. What what should. I be washed. I'll be aiming for is like benchmark right. I in one player game. You want to do that. You're not aiming for eighty percent when everyone else in your industry is only getting twenty percent. That's an unrealistic place to start. You want to at least be aiming for about the same saw a number but the as can he said the metric we really look for is nothing really to do with open rates or click through rates or any of that stuff. It's actually to do with how much money you're gonna make per subscriber per month because at the end of the day. You can't pay your bills. You can't pay your staff you can't pay for all that software the ears you compared to listening to this podcast quits. Right you can't pay all of the stuff that you see with with open rates. Click through rates. Instead you want to actually making sales so there's this old adage and i don't know where it's coming from but i think it's a myth this ancient thing that's been going around saying you should be able to earn an. I heard again this morning. One dollar per subscriber month in your business so if you've got one on subscriber you should make doll. I've got a hundred subscribers. You make one hundred dollars thousand subscribers. You should make thousand dollars now. I know that a lot of businesses are struggling to actually get anywhere close to that number so i think first of all. That number is a myth. However if you do it right you can make significantly more than one dollar per subscriber per month under that. The metric is higher than one dollars per subscriber per month. But what you really want to be focused on is that number which is a like a cocktail of things. it's a cocktail of urban rates and click through rates and conversion rates. And all of that stuff. Because of course they do factor into that equation. If nobody is opening your emails. You're not gonna make any money per month. So they do factor into it but it's it's way more complex than just open rates quickly rates because again it factors in the stuff you promoting the relationship you've got with your list. How often you make office. I mean one of the things to remember as well. I think people forget. This is about the sample size like how many people are on your list. That really affected. And it's like it's double edged sword as well so for example. If you've got a a massive list well as your list grows in general because of technology and because of all the constraints around tack basically your open rates and a lot of your deliverability percentage wise are gonna come gonna come down because you'll like working. These servers a lot harder which means all of the email providers. Esp's eugene males and your white males and hot meals and all that stuff are all going to get a bit more sensitive. You're sending a lot of email. We're going to have considerate less personal. So we're gonna give you slightly less deliverability that's kind of what happens so with a lodge list. It's actually very natural for as this grows for that deliverability for that open rape and for those numbers per subscriber to watch to actually reduce the other thing to remember is with a small list. So that's the good thing we a big list of calls you've got more people. And that's a lovely flip side of that smaller list. you can have probably higher open rates. Probably more earnings per subscriber most more sales and more value per subscribe. But the pop. The the negative is that you you. Have you have a smaller sample size. You have less data you literally have less people going through an off. I when you put it out there so if you've got fifty people on your list and let's see hundreds making make the math easy because that's not do kennedy math live on the show. So let's do a hundred people on your list and you put them you send them to an offer to a sales page off a page and one person buys it you might go to one percent conversion rate will you have. You've only put one central of hundred people. Compare that two thousand where you might get ten people by might get twenty people by. You're not giving enough of all over opportunity so you do constantly balance those two things and of course a big a big a list is probably not will take all over a smaller list in general but just be aware that but as it grows you might get those numbers deplete so think about the first part of this gas is to think about. What do you mean by. It's not working. Does it mean i'm not making sales. Because that is the ultimate macro metric. All you make in sound. What is your earnings per subscriber and is it going up or is it coming down. That's what you want know. Take a period of time january. How did we make some scribner and that simple math. Isn't it simply number two subscribers and it's the people are and how much earned that month from the from the subscribers right lovely stuff.

Myanmar soldiers confess for first time to mass killings, rapings of Rohingya
"First time members of Myanmar's military have openly confess to slaughtering members of the country's Rohingya Muslim minority to soldiers have admitted to killing dozens of civilians in 2017 and burying them in mass graves. The soldiers deserted the military and are now being held at the International Criminal Court in the Netherlands, one of the man private meal win, Tune said in his video confession. That his superiors told him to shoot all you see, and all you hear, including Children and Amy and get confusing. My general in his actions were part of a scorched earth campaign when Myanmar security forces for some 750,000 Rohingya from their homes into Bangladesh. Matthew Smith from the Thailand based Human Rights group. Fortify Rights has analyzed the video confessions. Matthew these air, really stunning toe Watch. What are the most explosive admissions? We here In these videos? Both of the soldiers in these phoned confession's admit to killing upwards of 180 civilians between the two of them. That's men, women and Children. Both of these soldiers were operational into different areas of northern Rick Kind state at the same time, and the fact that they both were given orders to Qilong Rohingya or exterminate all Rohingya. Essentially they were given orders to commit genocide in the fact that they were in two separate areas at the same time would indicate some coordination at the higher levels of the Myanmar army. There's also the issue of rape and sexual violence, You know, in one village called Jet Jochen, we knew there was a tremendous amount of rape and sexual violence committed by members of military against Rohingya. And one of these soldiers on an intern was operational in jet Yo pin while this rape was taking place, and he confesses to standing guard, while superior officers raped several running a women You've analyzes confessions. We can't independently verify their authentic. Why do you think they're credible? Essentially everything that these two men share in the testimonies can be corroborated or already has been corroborated by Our previous human rights documentation as well as the U. N fact finding mission and others and these two men appeared on the Bangladesh border presented themselves to Bangladesh authorities seeking protection confessing their crimes further. Yeah, That's also an interesting part of the story. How these confessions happen. They just appear together on the border at Bangladesh told their stories offered names and ranks of 19 of their superiors who say they gave the orders for war crimes. That seems like a really risky move on their part. So why did they do it? Do you know what motivated them? I want to believe that they were motivated by a desire for justice by desire for the truth and a desire for the BMR military to be held accountable for its actions. I think it's also noteworthy that both of these soldiers come from ethnic minority groups and for a very long time, we've know that some pretty at times brutal discrimination takes place within the ranks of the medium or military itself. I mean, I think of Aunt Song Suki, Myanmar's most public politician, She's artfully dodged the allegations of genocide. How can the Nobel Peace Prize laureate possibly walk away from this body of testimony? In many ways, her credibility internationally in shot. She has become a mouthpiece in many ways for the Myanmar military. She's doing the work of the military in denying that these atrocities had taken place. The Rohingya that you're in touch with Matthew how they reacted to these confession videos. Many people in the community are very hopeful. Right now. This is a moment that a lot of people for a very long time we're telling the writing of people this would never happen. A lot of people were dashing the hopes of the community saying, You know, The Hague is too far away from me, Amar. The military is immune from this type of accountability. And I think today a many Rohingya have expressed quite a lot of hope for justice and accountability. Think the people that I'm speaking with running in the camps and wrangle were in Yangon right now and elsewhere in various countries in the world? They know this isn't a silver bullet. They know this is not the answer, but they do recognize that this is a tremendous blow to Myanmar's denials.
The Squishy, Slimey Science Of ASMR
"Okay. So matty yes. Ma'am our tour guide through the world of is Julia Puerto. We're going to hear from her in a bit. She is a real life person who experiences. Asmar Real live one and researches it s Mars not exactly a big field of scientific study and it's only been a thing in public discussion for about a dozen years. That's about win. In two thousand seven people began to find each other and build communities online calling this feeling they had Asmar so these people just like get relief. Zenda out by whispering. There's a whole host of different triggers for different people. It could be whispering soft tapping rustling of paper. There seems to be a visual component to all of this not always things like slow movements delicate hand gestures can induce an. As Amar experience one of the most popular a s M artists on YouTube. That's what the people who make these. As videos on liner called is a darling here. She has quietly touching a little house. Housemate of Legos with her fingernails. Yeah here she is unwrapping a starburst is a starburst and mean unwrapped my personal favorite here. She is counting down slowly in a whisper from one thousand nine ninety these videos Vega millions of views on Youtube six. When you and I hear this we hear it but for some people they feel it. And that's what happens for Julia and those who experience asm art. It's a little bit like music juice chills or orange spot. Chill so sometimes you know if you haven amazing speech like Martin. Luther King's speech. You might get those kind of those goosebumps those shivers up your spine. Which is really kind of complex emotional aesthetic response to some people experience other people diners so this is young woman doing this in. You're like looking at her face and she's really close to the camera. It seems very intimate. Is this like? Is this a sex thing? On to be honest. That was my initial thought to. I don't experience I assume are Julius said based on studies she's done monitoring those who do not the feeling of getting turned on eight. I'll research we of course measured people's heart rates and on average heart rate decrease when people watched a small fires which is exactly the opposite of what you would expect. If it was somehow sexually arousing why but that makes me feel better about it it. Is it something else? So it's not like this sexual feeling what is it like in the brains of people who experience it. What's going on? We don't actually know what is happening. Truly in the brains of people who experience it nor how many people experience it at all the important thing to know here is. There isn't a ton of scientific research on this topic. There is one study though that really interested Julia. It's a two thousand sixteen paper by Canadian researchers that looked at the brains of people who experience Asmar when their brains run a restful state basically not doing anything and they looked at this specific network within the brain. Something called the default mode network which is associated with things like daydreaming in mind wandering and also self-referential thought and what they found was the essentially that they thought that the brain network activity at rest shows that the less able to inhibit sensory emotional responses. Basically they were less able to separate the link between what their senses are picking up and what they're feeling in their bodies sensory emotional experiences weren't as suppressed. Okay that makes sense to me. They experienced their sensors in a different way. Then like I experience my son says or something like that kind of like I said. This is one of many early studies. And what's also interesting is how people are experimenting with new. Asmar triggers on the Internet. Remember the using I mentioned earlier. Yeah I remember that it was unfortunate. I have with me in my hand Something that produces sound and I'm going to introduce it to you. Oh Nice little bit of flare. So what I'm holding in. My hand is slime Flown technically slime with little foam pieces inside to hear that. Yeah I can hear in the last few years. There's been booming videos of people manipulating slime. It'll have color or glitter or charms next into it. People gotten very creative with their slimes fun to play with and it also has a sound not doing it for you know. It's not doing something in. You are shrinking in your seat. I try and get as far away from me as possible. I don't I don't like it. You WanNA play with it. I mean you. Why don't you start one? I brought this in because if you search Hashtag. Mr Instagram right now. Guess how many posts come up. Six seven point six million. Oh my God I in the past not vast majority but a number of them are videos of people. Doing exactly what you're doing right now. Just manipulating slime making these satisfying squishy downs. Are there groups of people who experience an anti are like instead of feeling sued? Right now I feel very unsettled in my belly hurts. That would be called MS phony different episode. We wanted to ask our scientists Julia. If slime is a bona fide trigger for Asmar mean there are parallels. Probably people who experience `small would experience a small watching things like slime videos however one thing I would say is the actually. There's been quite a lot of interlocking between different trends. So s Marin slime and things buying have all kinds of mcbain started in South Korea broadcast people eating food while talking to their audience. With high quality microphones. What a nightmare. The Internet slime and things like Bon of MS piggybacked onto the small trend. So sure what under the sometimes category on the Internet of oddly satisfying. Yeah although hashtag asthma. Because I suspect it is piggybacking on us as kind of Tom to get people to watch videos so when you see a video of someone. Let's say cutting soap or cookie. Someone playing with really pretty slime. That may be oddly satisfying. But if you don't have the brain tangles it's not ASAMARA. That's talking to you at the same time. Julia said that the more Mars linked to things like slime videos. That could change what it means for people on the Internet. She's focused though on the world of science and has a lot of outstanding questions. Why do some people experience it and others? Don't why do some people experience it at a higher intensity than others and also and this is really interesting to me? What is the effect of? Asmar on sleep. So we know anecdotally that people who experience `small use these videos on Youtube to help go to sleep and I guess the question is will y y does is more help you go to sleep and another important question with regards to sleep is does it not only help you get to sleep but it does also improve the quality of your sleep so for some people. This might be like the Modern Day. Version of counting. Sheep Says County. One thousand nine hundred ninety
