"And understanding. We're making progress. And so you're both very clearly focusing on the use of data and technology.

I think is a key ingredient to the success that you're seeing really making shore d in the business or closely integrated so interesting mikhail. I think there was a question you wanted to address right. There's one on trust. How do you ensure that such as trust actually happen. I see silos in our large organization. That initiatives are not focused on the employees. And just the kind of backtrack and just kind of take a urge view of trust and accountability. These are themes that. I've heard both of you. Talk about trust accountability transparency. And how. they're all really tied together and being accountable. That's doing what you say that's going to engender trust and people when people feel they can trust their organization. They're more likely to stay there more engaged. There are many ways you can show trust about. You know being competent and that issue about transparency sharing information. So the people know what's happening and then acknowledging maybe where oh. We said we're going to do this in. This didn't happen but acknowledging that and like we're working to do better. Adopting that growth mindset in how critical that is were or an organization and the people in organizations so i just wanted to kind of create that frame before i pass it on to you to address this question from your perspectives. I'm totally i think. Either the question that we ask. Or i look at least to ask are quite often is what does success look like for you. How do you want to be communicated. How really understanding. The variety of our individuals needs so that we can start to be much more internal customer centric in how we do the work that we do and that it's not a one-size-fits-all so regularly asked that i'm not making or can casting my shadow of how a business in like interacted and collaborated with on others.

That's just what. I want to talk with her about today about a simple process to transform confusion into clarity and pain into peace so welcome to the show heather ash. Are you ready to shine. I sure am so great to be here with you. Michael and with everyone on inspire nation. So glad to have you here as well. And i won't jump ahead and give away the whole story but i once went on book tour with. I don't know twenty four twenty five and a half foot. Rv thing and i managed to one day to get broken into two car accidents late in broken glass and almost tip the thing over so so resonate airstream woodstock experience that said. How did you meet the toll. Tek teacher don miguel. And what was your life like beforehand So i met me when i was i think. Twenty four twenty five. I had a dream about him. So i woke up one morning and i said to myself right. Where am i going to meet this. Really powerful my life and a week later somebody came into my office and said oh my god you have to meet this man and my whole body went. I'm not ready and it took me a year to actually meet him and The moment that i met him in mepu- community. I was just like yes. This is what i've been looking for. And my life before. Then was i was really blessed a lot of a lot of amazing teachers in my life and i felt like kind of the end of an apprenticeship with someone that i love dearly but i had this sense of some piece that i was missing and when i met me gal that was really the piece that i'd been looking for to to really learn how to stay centered in my life in a new way. Was this part of the practice of being able over that year to get yourself in that war your heart state where you could lean forward because we often have this fear. There's little niggling knowing inside of us. How great we are and it scares the heck out of us and we put up these walls to keep ourselves from it yeah. I think that's really true that so often. We are afraid of our own power. And i've definitely had that journey in my own life of how to keep expanding how to keep growing how to trust that. It's all going to be okay. There's definitely this wiring. Like if i keep shining my light. If i keep bringing myself out in the world then somehow i'm gonna lose all my friends or people aren't gonna understand me or whatever the programming it whatever. The story is the we've had doug always who've had dummy galleries junior both both on the show here and they're often talking about domestication and i wonder if we can go back to your life at age three when this i kind of. I don't even know if hit home is the right thing. we'll say. Hit the floor and broke. Yes so the story is of having an experience of running around being super excited and breaking a vase. We're having my sibling break vase and the first thing that we think of when we think of something broken. Oh my god. I'm gonna get in trouble but when you're really young you don't have you don't think of i'm gonna get in trouble. You just think that made a loud noise and then you go off and running. Play again. So i always imagine. Imagine moms coming home. Had a really rough day stressed out. She's really frustrated. Gets a call that the babysitters gone and that the kids by themselves you can imagine mom walking into this room where her favorite basis shattered on the floor and the two kids are laughing in the other room and her response is probably not going to be children. I've had a very difficult day. Let me take a deep breath and talked about his base which i loved so much. It's going to be who my the when we're little we we have emotional reactions to something so if you can imagine being blamed for something. You didn't do so in this case. Being blamed for breaking the vase and for humans like have emotional reactions to things. So you can imagine like going to my room sitting on the bed and feeling disappointed. Feeling scared feeling confused. What just happened. Why is mom so angry. Why did i just get blamed for something that we all go through that emotion and the emotions normal but what we do next is what creates a lot of challenges in our life and what we do. Is we make a story. So what i've seen in humans that with our reactions when your emotional bodies clean you have a quick emotional reaction you have the emotional reaction it moves through you and then you make a choice of what to do next but when we put the story on top of it and often the stories aren't based on truth. This is where everything gets really confusing in our lives and so examples of stories that we might make up. If i'm playing really hard and having a lot of fun. I'm gonna get in trouble. Should lie faster. If i if i blame somebody else i. I'm not gonna get in trouble. I can't trust my mom. I can't trust my my sibling. I can't trust anybody. Mom loves sibling. My sibling more. So if you grab onto one of those stories. So let's say that we grab onto. Mom loves sibling. More what happens is then we start. Doing something called selective evidence gathering so we go back into our lives. And let's say mom locks on the door and says honey. I am so sorry. I know that your sibling broke the face. And that you know i had a really frazzled day. And i love you so much and i love it when you play so she says all the right things but now in your mind you have. This idea. mom loves sibling war. Let's say you grab onto that one and you go and sit at the dinner table and mom passes the mashed potatoes to your sibling. I and in your mind with the mind immediately does is see. I knew it. She does love her more. We have evidence and then later in the evening mom passes you the the ice cream. I you don't even see that because the data doesn't fit your store or you start to twist it. Oh well now feeling bad for me because she knows that i know that. She loves my sibling more. So she's just trying to make me feel better so we're incredibly creative and how we make up these stories and the stories often go to kind of a baseline point of we are not good enough. There's something wrong with me. I am broken and we use our entire lives to prove that true exactly we have these baseline stories and i've really seen in the western world especially it seems like we have very few baseline stories. One is i'm not. I'm not good enough. I'm not loveable. Or i'm broken or some combination of that and then from there than we create these other stories. I have to be perfect in order to be loved to have to be perfect or i have not trust humans. Humans aren't trustworthy. Or if i just make everybody else. Happy than all somehow be happy as well. So we create all these strategies and all these ways of coping with these these really deep agreements of around worth around our worth in the world. And it's interesting because it's so habituated in the western world that we don't we just think that's just the way it is. Remember reading this great story of tibetan and it might have been the dalai lama but the thebenz talk when.
What is ASMR?
"Before we start the conversation. We'd like to share a little bit about us last time we shared. Would you rather find away or make away this week asking. Do you think muffins are just cakes. Were very odd question. My love yes. Indeed it's a critical questions for some people point discussion. How's that pointless. You know how people will argue about are certain things really just other things. This is one of those type of questions set of people in my life to have those types of conversations with really like the sun. Just a star. Some people don't think like the now. I definitely seen those conversations and maybe have entertain them in a different part of my but not currently though to answer the question i would say. Yes if the muffin came highly. Decorated with delicious toppings. But if it's just a the plano muffin without the trimmings. Then my answer is no you do so your answers is it coming a that makes them a cake. Yes not highly decorated ben. It's not it's been decorate. That's an interesting way to think about. And i'll just say no. I think muffins cakes because the texture of the top is different. It's more cross legged in cake. Kickers a little bit smoother. And it's not so. I don't know the muffin. Top is different. Yeah it's differ woman that make sense. Okay yeah i went over. That's all i'd like us. This substance perspective batupped. Yeah done just. I'm just don't at all based off of looks. I'm not using something like sounds or visual effects. That can be used and you know leads us. Dr next topic does it. S are nice transition our right. Yeah that's that's a great question to bring up now. This is probably what the episode is about. Isn't that worry okay. It's not about the muffins never well. That's the acronym. So let's start with what that acronym means and it stands for economists sensory meridian response. Psychology dot com. They described the experience as happily warm tingling sensation that starts on the scalp and moves down the neck and spine that has experienced by some people. But it's not by everybody. This feeling can be triggered by sounds like brushing hair tapping fingernails or whispered affirmations. Asmar became big in two thousand seven when a woman with the username okay. Whatever described her experience of asm sensations in all mine health discussion forum. So that's where really popped off and then all these now there's tons of videos and communities all center around this s amara experienced some interesting and i also found it interesting article in vox which similarly describes the experiences you did they go on to say also that like many people are some people rather say the feeling is deeply relaxing it can even cause them to sleep so can be peaceful in nature and and they go on to describe it as saying it's it sounds very technical but there's no real good signs or research behind this phenomenon and according to box they said that determines believed to have been point in two thousand ten or my jennifer allen who started a facebook group dedicated to finding out more about it and the term quickly caught on as people finally had a way to reference a pleasurable feeling. They had been experiencing so point. Is you now. I think and and that doesn't necessarily conflict with what you found it could you. Maybe it wasn't titled titled in two thousand seven but interesting that it has dates back to that time period at least interesting.

Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny
"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

Creating Your Own Opportunities with Wendy Amara

To my aunt, still live in the scene apartment building that they first came two years ago. Wow. Yeah. Crazy Ray. At one point they were invited to purchase the apartment building in the apartment building is near the border of Hollywood end those fees. Okay. Feeding in La. has become a hot property location where values of homes and apartment buildings and everything has skyrocketed anything boulder but I don't know ten times more than it would have been years ago. So it's interesting because back in the day they turned it down. To permit building because I think at one point, they were renting three different apartments or for I mean everybody has like a little apartment in that building. So that's part of why the owner was like. Would you guys up to purchase it and I think a fear? A fear is not knowing the rules of this new country, what they were getting into and people were. I remember my mom being like Oh no no I think that's too much for us to handle its and they could have actually afforded it back. Then they all would have pulled their money.

Voice Development and the Creative Process with Ilarna Nche
"Today I have the honour talking to Alana Chad who's a voice developer. Whose boiled many many different experiences for Alexa. Google and bixby. And what really impressed me about Lorna is her creativity and all the things that she's done with voice. Some really really excited to talk to her alarm. Why don't you introduce yourself? Hi everyone my name is Alana. I am twenty four years old. I am working on voice. Assistance will be free is now and I recently graduated from the University of Kent For Year pursued. Waste Industry Kind of Siebel where it was all about added Paid off and I've recently been announced Alexa champion and will serve Recently announced as bixby develop theories. Well said a very pleased with how guarding. I'm glad I took the the junk ready grades. And congratulations on being the bixby developer. The air at project voice and Being Alexa champion. That's quite an accomplishment of I have to ask you. What did you get your degree in technology degree or completely different? Yes so I was down that route of going into university in thinking what do I actually want to do and I never I? I was at the point where we have to decide what route you wanted to go down. I'd never really done any of computer science or anything up until hours around sixteen years old because they didn't ready introduce that into into schools much so it wasn't until I was sixteen. Monday introduced Him It's like a high school the high school side at. That's what I saw and I was like. Wow I wanna try it and I kind of not with the whole computer science as and I knew then I wanted to do something in that field but did I want to do it as a job. So that's why I chose. Degree weather is very broad so it. It kind of varies from Web Design to games designed to photography reading modeling like any module any cool secret drink. It was very very broad. Silos able to be like take if I liked it will hide the just will not go down that route because I actually did want to do reading log lane. I thought was really cool. What I saw the course at Casino Harry possible violence the Pixar than when I came to ours like actually this is quite hard and also quite you have to patients because you'll be making a ten second clip in the whole time. I literally I. I have the patience with that. So I did like the whole mobile application development and everything else that came with the coolest so I tied down the the programming side. That's how I kind of figured out went to be in fields. Great you know I encourage people to go explore different things and try things out right because who knows I think should reinvent yourself every end years and figure out what really excites you and go pursue it and even if that means a big change so good for you to try a bunch of things and and you landed on something you enjoy for right now and Yeah go pursue it so learn by my count you created twelve different Vicky capsules and they arrange everything. There's some educational capsules was capsules. Fitness. There's an. As Amara capsule yes in Quiz Games. Can you describe a couple of those big speak capsule in experiences? Yes with with big beat being so new and that the market is well. I I wanted to basically kind of see which type of capsule John kind of like making the Live at the mall one. It was simply something. I bake these experiences to me some cause before I related to other people by decided. Let's take an approach. Like make them for myself. I would you so I'm a big fan of they. Samah I love going to sleep to the mall and I noticed that there are no asleep. Sound experiences out that the A very big market. When look on Youtube for example a lot of people do love a law on it so different to ambient noises because of the whole experience is supposed to deliver this brain light tingle to grain and relax your brain so I wanted to make one and the best thing about putting it on bixby. Robin like Youtube is that we've topped the screen on and you're trying to get to bed the light shining in the room at least if you put it on a voice platform than kind of eliminate the whole having to have screen on and you can just listen away and go to sleep at sun baths with the small one with education. I've kind of always with me being in education for so long you kind of It's kind of a nice way to just keep shop and keep lining whether is learning a language learning maximum stuff stuff that you kind of need to keep learning with at and also fitness. I never really did many experiences and I wanted to see especially when it comes to the end of Christmas. Everyone's not fitness mentality. And you always WANNA keep so i. I've never tried one of my capsules. I made my yoga. I never done yoga before. But I forbid good. experienced Yoga positions as well as make something. I could use to win. You know I love it when people say they built something for themselves she we're talking about. Am tomorrow the Yoga Capsule Education Capsules Unit? You sound found personal benefit to these any wanted to share it and always find that when you build from the heart something you just do your much more motivated and it really really shows in the quality of what you build so great great job you touch them. This a little bit alarmed. But how did you first get involved with building for voice? What what motivated you to to build for this new medium. The main difference the main encouragement life for me to get into voice was honestly. I did that Michael sweaters on full of different modules. And I I knew that where I struggled was with visual graphic design and I love my lapse. I really did want from that. Was My design Like designing the the APP so visuals so when we Amazon dot came out. I notice that you could speak to it. And it will these skills and I didn't realize it was a third party developer. Who'd made these this experience so i. I love learning skills. I'm always up for landing anything so when I when I saw you could make one yourself. I jumped at the opportunity and I started building. It was really simple experience. It was gang could odds on why you would not match the same number of Alexia so that was by really enjoyed Also collected have to think about the design side of things so fast already love love voice. Yeah that's great so it sounds like followed your strengths so I was gonna ask you. What your first voice experience was. But you said it was the odds-on is that still out on the skill store. I had I had no idea still lacking yeah. I think we all have our first things that we built. They think the first thing ever built is a jokes scale. I don't know if you're not have to go check. But when and how did I get started developing bixby itself? Yeah so I was invited to be developer partner program and yet I was told you want to start developing on BEC- speak I had heard expe- before the the the sound on Samson Introduced to the essay the Galaxy S. nine and I was like of course anew scaled the I'd just I just love learning anytime some of that. Something I'm like. Yes for and then the Simpson team. What me on. Everything the ide- e the Bixby Studio hand it kind of was very very intimidating fast. Because I was like a new platform is different syntax using bid. I'd never hundred full but I think it made it easier once I once I kind of just in that whole Amazon Mine Alexa. Mind watching the fall but once I remember that was we did not. You did a tutorial that Webinar with the horoscopes. A yeah actually. I think it might have been atom uncharted the Horoscope to Joyal few. It was about horoscopes. But yeah coding without him. Yeah yeah it was yeah Lebanon end it was like Every helped so I always say like a lot to learn. Visually visual linings. Always our big eight for me. I I kind of documentation is good with support. The I thought visual AIDS so when there's a lot of videos stuff out there examples not the example is really helpful. It really helped kind of move my Experience with big speak
You Haven't Heard of Raina Telgemeier, But Your Kids Probably Have
"Understand how Raina got where she is today you gotta know something about her mom she loves artichokes this one day when Raina was nine her mom served them for dinner later Raina and her siblings Amara and will went to bed so to their parents Glenn in the middle of the night Raina and her mom woke up with the stomach flu and then we were throwing up artichokes and artichokes have a chemical in them that makes water tastes sweet when you drink it after you eat one so I threw up and then she hands me like a little Dixie Cup of water and drank like Harry you know rinse your mouth out and it was grows it tasted like sugar sweet water so there's also this weird thing happening around like water doesn't taste like water what is wrong so she was like oh Jeez oh sorry it's because we had artichokes dinner when Rano went back to school she tried to gross everyone out with her barfield artichoke story she figured her friends with since fourth grade was pretty much one big gross out contest but this story this was over the top not funny they told her and then a couple of months later I felt sick again and that I was going to throw up again and for some reason it was like a curtain just as Senate over my body where now the idea of being sick was almost worse than the thing itself Raina didn't throw up but the intensity of worrying that she would that changed her it meant that anytime like my brother was sick he was really little and he got sick all the time and I would like leave the house and go try to sleep in the car and somebody at school went. Oh that makes me wanna Puke I was like I'd freak out and I started being worried anytime like a friend would go to the bathroom and like didn't come back for a while it just immediately started thinking oh no what if she's in the bathroom throwing up I was afraid of vomiting is called Meta phobia I didn't know that word until Mum Metaphor recently yes a Metaphor he is the pathological fear of vomiting I was nine and I was afraid of throw up what was the anxiety about the like you said there was like a curtain like what were you afraid was going to happen I don't know Oh i think I was just afraid that I was going to get sick or that the feeling of being sick was just as bad as death RENA basically became a full-time avoid her but it wasn't just that free trout food could send her reeling I mean artichokes obviously and mushrooms milk she was also scared of bees scared of my parents dying scared of needles scared of pooping my pants scared of doctors scared of surgery scared of getting bad grades China's reading handwritten words from a few panels in her new book or guts thickness on the pages you see her nine year old self nauseated and sweaty surrounded vice swirling green clouds and then the third panel the words have just gotten bigger and bigger and more intense and they are pressing down on my characters figure and here it says snakes pain doctors war drowning choking that it math death stupidity talking sickness and kidnapping because that was real big in the eighty s everybody's talking about kidnapping these anxieties they run the gamut from like small too big career Listrik to like imagined you know it sounds like you were feeling scared all the time yeah I was extremely anxious S. and anything could trigger me and anything could go from being totally benign to being something horrifying in a blink and what was that like like to live in that state all the time I will describe it as being both extremely noisy an extremely isolating all these would go in there and they would make noise but the isolation came from feeling like I couldn't talk about it and like this was weird and that nobody else would understand on this and I was the only person who had that's like this in their head because I look over at my classmates and they're just you know normal like doing their own thing and making friends with each other and hanging out and like eating their lunches and stuff and I was like oh my gosh how can they do that

"I mean, that's a pretty project to have something that would be like a one stop shop of a situation and it is extremely difficult for families, especially families that are on the margins have poverty issues transportation. Issues to have to go from one end of town to another numb to go to the doctor's office, and then go, pick up their wick check to then go to the dentist or mental health appointments having all their clothes that would be amazing that how can get plugged in her. Learn more about that too coma work. That's happening there. I take our website and then follow our social media, our Facebook, Instagram. Facebook is more informative? Okay. This away Instagram set up like literally, in the very infancy stages, as we are just getting off the ground. Trying to find the who's gonna, you know, be the external kind of assessment person, just getting off the ground there. Post more on our website, and Mokarram antastic, I'll make sure link those in the show notes, and get folks at information so that visit the website and follow Amara on social media trae as we start to wind down. What is something that you wish people knew more about in the realm of, what Amara doesn't what your experience has been? I think working with the Mara, if you are family, who is quote lay. Nontraditional Amara has historically been. We pride ourselves into diversity that we bring in with our families, single families same sex couples, we really just pride ourselves on working with all who have that desire to provide that stable, consistent home, and that's been consistent to our history. So I think that's important to have about Amara. I think really just I think normalizing foster youth. I think Fosse's kinda get putting this other category of too hard to parent too many behaviors too many emotional struggles. And yeah, that can be some of our youth, but have to remember why that is, is that they've come from a trauma history is not just who they are as isn't. So I think teaching folks at foster youth are youth down the street from us or the kit that attend church your your kid's school. I'm just kinda normalizing who they are. I think and they all need support. So figuring out what your angle is supporting foster care. I get everyone doesn't have the capacity the time to become a foster parent, but there's so many other ways that you can have all the Mara or the organizations that are doing great work to support us in Boston care. Trey if you had a button in front of you that I could give you a magic button that you could press that would change one thing about your foster parenting experience about your experience around foster care, and adoption or around your work in Amar's work if there was one thing that you can change what would it be? And why one would be I think we always often talk about it tomorrow. We wish our goal is that we wouldn't we would cease to be in existence because there isn't a foster care system needed in our country on. So I think that button would be really putting resources and efforts into preventative services in the front end to keep kids from even coming into care in the first place. And so really getting to those families early, providing whatever they needed to keep their family being stable and placing them into foster care about substance, abuse services and homeless crisis, and all the things that are bringing our kids into the system. So somehow figuring out a way to make sure every family has the resources the basic resources that they need to care for their kids, as you know, most of the kids are coming in for neglect. There are the her. Linda's sexual abuse sexual and physical abuse cases. And so I think they're probably always be a need for some foster here because offer sheets tasks tuition's going to happen, but are coming into neglect, which often could be remedied through adequate resources finding a way to really support all families, so that they have the resources to care for their kids because everyone loves her kids. It's just lack. The resources are sometimes skills to do that. That's well said, everyone loves their kids. Sometimes they lack the skills villages to be to do it safely trae is there anything that you would like to share or talk about that? We haven't covered today. I just remembered sober Amar's on a new initiative, and it's called, fostering, family. Get set to launch in may for foster care awareness month, and it's really a public awareness about kind of changing the perception of foster youth, and just the foster care system and all involved with the birth families the foster families the youth in really, it's not a recruitment campaign, but really just kind of trying to change the narrative around, you know, these kids are here this is kinda why this is kind of how the community can support. So it's kind of. Idea of bringing in businesses and kind of other folks say, like these are ways that, you know, hey, if your business, maybe you could host a foster info session for your employees as a lunch and learn or maybe you can have, you know, offer foster parents of free meal, or something like that. But just really kind of increasing that we're -ness of what's going on with foster care state from a more positive strength base perspective. And that's launching in may is going to be focused just on that kind of immediate shoot sound region. So kind of Olympia to kind of Bellingham kinda core area and just really through marketing campaigns and really getting more businesses and other agencies involved. So it's a mar branded, but it's completely separate from Amar of that makes sense. So it'll be it'll be collaborative. Yeah. So we'll ask agencies what long during do you have listening all on the website and just so people can go there and figure out all the different ways they can support foster care, that's coming soon to well, that's a great opportunity. So that'll be launching in may fostering family initiative, great work, that Amar is doing if you wanna get engaged have. Their emergency shelter their foster care program. They're posted option support program, and then they will be launching their fostering family initiative in may.

"We've only had two places because we have one really long term, one in in your husband is he in the same similar line of work in terms of field. What exact exact? He's a business manager for remodeling company. So okay knows social services at some direct service. But this in this room, what, what has been the biggest difference in because it still I'm convinced at foster parenting, it is direct service. It's just it's a different way of doing direct service in clinical. Case management. What was the biggest kind of a ha or whoa? This is different from from you being a direct service clinical social worker, case manager to being a foster parent. Yeah, I think the biggest thing was all your professional training and education. And like all the vice you give to the probably worked with thirty foster families over my four years goes all out the window, and it's you forget, all that when it's like you at home with the two year old has tantrum for three hours like you all the skills and stuff, trainings attachment and all that stuff goes out the window, and like you like, how do I do this, even though I supported families doing that for four years. I thought that was the biggest thing and realizing I still need my own support. Right. So like reaching out to some of the birth of three in for mental health places, making sure we got the support, even though I everything they say to me is not new, like, yeah. Just realizing that personnel, professional disconnecting goes all the biggest the biggest thing, I think, is bringing in because I worked in foster care Anamar. We promote the birth parents, I had no. Fear and connected with the parents have our kids. I'm so we've had the two kiddos. We've had a baby, and then we've had our little guy. He's four Nabet. We've had him since he was fifteen months off and on, so going on almost three years, two and a half years. And from day, one have connected with her family pretty quickly in both cases. So I think that definitely helped being professional the field. I didn't have the fears I think some new foster parents have around for parents. I was like no percent a jump right in and I, 'cause I've never seen a case where like the birth parents, something horrible happened when they have the connections, even though everyone thinks that's what's going to happen. So I was like, I have any inkling my four years at it's not something you do. So I was like let's jump in meet the birth family and support them as much as we can. And so, yeah, no, you're right. There's a lot of horror stories out there. And it, it just takes one, bad story, inference spread like wildfire. Meanwhile, there's all these great, awesome stories of relationships that have been had between a foster parent of biological family again with certain protections because there's confidence yet another pieces, but that have gone. Well, and so, but it's interesting that you mentioned you know, all your training experience. It's like once once it became real, it's like that all went out the window, and I think about even as I've trained foster families like how often that has happened in you had that lens already, you know, as a professional so putting ourselves in, in the space of foster families. This is so new to them. You mentioned earlier in this is a little bit more of a personal question than some that have been asking you and your husband. So as a gay couple, and this is part of what you were studying before you got into the field. But you mentioned one of the things that you realize slack of support or that you needed support of your own as a gay couple. How how available was that support? How easily accessible was it? What was your experience? Yeah. I mean very likely live in King County. Facific -ly Seattle. I'm sure if I lived in some other more conservative places in. I don't know if my experience probably would be a little bit different. All the service providers were awesome in great. We've had no stigma discrimination against. Our family that I'm aware for even have sensed any seeking out, supports state workers or therapist or even you know, he'd get like you get wit checks for being a foster parent and going to the wick office or doctors offices and dentist's office in daycare, like all the things that parents interactivity fed, no issues finishing. They've, it's been celebrated like daycare, we had to fill out like a about my family type thing when he started preschool and was like, you know what books do you wanna see that reflect your culture, and I talked about child being African American and native American and turn it in women's, like you don't want any books around like to dads to mom homes, and I'm like, oh, didn't even think about that. But yeah, that would be awesome to teach the other kids in the class about what my little guys home might looks like so good. Okay. Great great. I'm glad to hear that because I know some people have really struggled with that. So I'm glad because that being such a key part of who you are in the services that you're providing how you living life. So glad to hear that it was. It's been more receptive, going back to Amara. So. So folks who are interested in getting involved, you'd mentioned again foster parenting, the emergency shelter posted ops and support for the listeners who are like, hey, this is interesting. I wanna get more engaged not necessarily becoming a foster parent. Maybe that's what they wanna do. How can they learn more information? How can they get involve order ways that they can support Amara? Yeah. So I think volunteering at this inquiry is a one way. It's not as big as of commitment as obviously becoming a fulltime foster parent, so definitely, you know, some training and some background clearances and yeah. The minimum ask is one shift a month for the volunteers, and they're six months shifts are six hour shifts, and they're sanctuaries, open, weekends holidays. So it's twenty four seven so there's you know, there's weekday shifts. There's weeknight shifts overnight shifts or weekend shifts can fit anyone's kind of work and personal life schedule definitely one way for the post adoption one of their big things is for that mentorship program. They need adults who've been adopted to kind of step up and be mentor. So that's if anyone out there listening is. Has adopted history, and they can be adopted through foster Care International adopted as a baby through private adoption doesn't have to be adopted through foster care for the adults to be part of it. Just having adoption in their life story. So that's one way for folks to get involved that way. And then obviously we're nonprofit. So there's always you can always donate money for sure. But those are probably the ways to get involved outside of becoming a foster parent, and the seven years that you've been around. I'm sure that there's other stories that you could tie into from others that have been here longer. You mentioned a Maher's been here around since nineteen twenty one. But what, what's the impact was the difference at of mar has made in the community? Yeah. I think the one thing that we really are fortunate and pride ourselves on us that we are about eighty five percent funded through philanthropy. So donations through personal donations foundations grants etcetera. A lot of the other agencies. Do our work are more tight to state money in state contracts. So this gives us, I think we'll go room to think outside the box because we don't aren't tied to certain people's funding to do certain things. So like the sanctuaries, I don't have that could happen if we were solely reliant on state funds, because, it's it doesn't bring it any money all all based on donations and prioritization, to be able to create a sanctuary, I think that's kind of helped us and just posted option truly funded through there's no state money coming back to that. So just really being able to think outside the box, I think that's one thing that has allowed Maher to do some of these new innovative innovative programming. And I think we're still always trying to think about, what that looks like, for example, in Tacoma, we just purchased and I'm gonna get it wrong. I think it's twenty nine acres of land out and kinda more rural Tacoma area. We moved our Tacoma office there. And right now she's all this land with some like chickens. Ducks pigs and cows, put the plan is we want to make that a place for the community. So this whole year our Tacoma, Pierce county team is doing like a community engagement project around, how can we make this plot of land? What can we put on this? Who can we have a wine the land? Like a place for the community. And I think he may be a one stop shop. So maybe having a daycare center there, visitation center, their mental health services addiction services, potentially even a state office. They're like, whatever it may look like so that parents who are in need of services can kinda come there and all their needs met, and that are having to travel up five different places to get their needs met. And so we're really trying to ask, what our vision is what we want to the community tells us what they want, and we don't just assume and so that's a Mars and parking. Now in like, again, I don't think we'd be able to do that, if we had to.
"amara" Discussed on Nonprofit Luminaries
"Really cool, where I think we're hoping to get kids in there like tonight for the first time and in the wanted to komo's the healthy Renton into coma neighborhood, but really, it's really set up to be child focus therapeutic care, and really just being there for kids during a really hard time, we can take up to five kids, so we'll take our sibling sets that typically will have to be broken up if they remain in foster care, unfortunately, typically kids from infants to twelve but we'll take older teenagers. They have under siblings attached with a sixteen year old, but they have, you know, a ten in nine year old sibling will take all three so that they can stay together and those first couple of days and it's just, you know, it's in the model is we have one pay. Staff and there's one or two volunteers opinion on the number of kids in the needs, and it's cooking meals going to the park onto the aquarium. We take all the kids, their initial medical health screen, we have partnerships with hospitals and both Seattle, Tacoma and meeting some of those needs taking some of that off the social workers plate. And I think a really cool thing that they do as they take really detailed notes about the kids, what their likes dislikes, you know, how do you put him down to sleep all the different things, and they write kind of all about me thing, and that sent to the next placement. So if they're going into foster home, or if they're going to grandma's, we give them like a five pasting everything they need to know about this kid, so, like the foster parents can continue some of that stuff. That's already started and really just get to know more about the kid than what the state sends on their Chipper, which is okay oftentimes, not much. Okay. And the Chipper is the child information placement referrals. So anytime a kid in placement needs a new home. They send that out to kind of, say this is a kid Asian kind of what their needs are kind of the description document that goes out to a foster family and then. You mentioned posts adoption works. We've talked about foster care, the emergency shelter posted option told me about that program in how a house Acilitator that care for families who have adopted so it's fairly new, I think it's three issues in existence. We've done a lot of adoptions ours. We've been around for so long and, you know, we'd have families that would call us, you know, five years after the adoption happened in say, hey, our son's really struggling. I think it's due to, you know, his past history of trauma neglect, and we would help families best we could is kind of a one off situation. We realized related support families who've adopted kids with trauma past that we know traumas always there and can resurface. We do a lot of younger kids. So if you adopted three year old they may be doing really well, but then they hit kindergarten like, oh, they're starting to see some signs they hit puberty or like there's some issues going on. So they have programs to have a robust program, where families can call get fully supported, you know, whether it's I need a therapist in my city takes the Dopson support payment. Can you help me find that will kind of keep updated around? Therapists for adopted youth. There's a mentorship program, which is a really, really cool idea. So we approached by one of our adoptees, he's, maybe twelve or thirteen at the time and said, I've never met an adult to adopted DeVos TRICARE, and I, I would really benefit from having a mentor who shared a similar life, history that I have. And so we kind of worked with him tickets idea in created a, let's call the star mentorship program. And so it's kids eleven to twenty who are paired with adults twenty one and over who have been adopted and it's a group model. So it's not one on one mentorship. They kind of come together and do you know, bonding activities to Mariners games, you know, various things in the community and just really kind of form relationships in mentoring through kind of a group model and I think it's been very powerful for us to be in a space where they don't have to tell their story like everyone there was adopted and so they can just be space. Have that shared knowledge, but not have to continue to explain that all the time. I think a benefit that we didn't realize at the time was that a lot of the adoptees in the group were kind of from that close adoption era where they didn't talk about adoption, there was no contact with parents. And so they really didn't process. They're much growing up because it just wasn't talked about thing. And one of the guys had being in this. I think he was like an his late forties or early. Fifties has just now for the first time really processed is adoption by seeing these young young kids being so open, and so proud and just so resilient and their story that he was like, wow. Cut doing that work now fifty. So it's really cool to kind of see that restorative Justice with him. And just being able to do that, maybe a little bit later in life still able to do that, which is really cool. I just highlighted something that's been a big shift in foster care when a option specifically over the generations, which is that it used to be a closed adoption. Don't talk about it. Don't say anything about it. Let's keep this hush-hush then you had these people turning adults eighteen and twenties wanting to find out about who they were and why they were adopted and what their sich. Relation was so to hear this, this story of fifty year old man, who's filing now started a process things. I'm engine, that's major impactful for his life and an example for the kids to. He's mentoring that healing a lifelong process. Yeah, totally. So how did you get involved with Amara? We were talking before we started recording admits she'd been working with mar- for seven years. What what's your story in engaging in foster care in this realm, though, out of college undergrad, psychology, I went straight into a PHD program and family studies. Part of like my Reese with my research advisor was kind of all the research. I was doing my thesis and helping out with some of her work was all around working with galas, Byan parents. I was at the university of Illinois, so kind of rule illinois's not like Sakado or suburbs. But, like the more rural typically more conservative, does she still see conservative areas and kind of working with gay and lesbian parents around, how they just managed their daily lives with kind of more stigma attached to their families. I guess you could say and so I would drive to these. Farming towns and do focus groups with lesbian moms, and just kinda hear their stories and interesting consistent story across all of them were discrimination. They faced do agencies foster care, adoption agencies and also courts and I was wasn't on track to be a lawyer law. But I was like it was the first time I realized that someone actually goes to school and someone's job is to be a foster care adoption social work. I never put that together. I don't know how it took me that long to put it together. So I actually that, that really intrigued me and I realize PHD was not the right education to do that work because PHD is not direct service. And so I can't be but not the when I was in. And so actually ended that program took some time off the end up going to you doub- to get my MSW master's in social work, and I knew going in my focus is really gonna be more adoption. And then because of that has a lot of that seatac program that program they trained. They pay for schools, kids education, and they work in tell after a lot of the courses around child development, they're focused on foster. Youth. And so, I realize, oh, really my passion is like foster care adoptions part of that in a way, but expanding that to that, so I did all my classes at both of my internships with the state and adoption and foster care units. And then I think I graduated in June and then started working in August, and that was almost eight years ago now. Yeah. And so what have you what's been your experience working in the foster kill realm with that passion that you had initially with gay, and lesbian families, and what their experiences were a what's what's been what's been your journey? What's been like I should say to finish, the Titus story back together, the reason why I chose to apply to Mars. I knew their petition and the community as being one of the first in more open, affirming to work with gay lesbian couples. And so that's why chose saw Amar's typically versus some of the other agencies. I mean my work has been great. So I've been here. Seven years. Four of those years were being called our foster care specialist. So that's working directly with the foster families getting them license. Meeting the train requirements, and then provided case management. Love that work love supporting families, and just being in the moment, what the kind of walking along the journey because foster cares, very long journeys dot have families, you know, that, that or with me for all the for years, but they maybe had been with the mar for another three years prior to that. So really walking along family and their journey which I really enjoyed and really the only reason why decided to switch over to the current role. I have, which is more outreach carrying a case as clinically based, I guess, you could say was, I became a foster parent myself about little three years ago, and I wanted to have a separation between when I did for work and what I would be doing at home. So that was in the timing workout where this, this new position got created Amara. And I was going to foster parents, probably the perfect time to try something new and kind of not be as attached to the fostering. Day-to-day stuff, direct service and direct service white, I knew I'd have my own direct service work in theory going on at home. To kind of separated a bit. So, yeah, kinda why. I mean the switch and I've loved being an outreach. I, I don't shy away from the public eye public speaking and kind of being in front of groups and stuff is just a natural thing for me. So it's been kind of a natural fit to kind of be outreach. Kind of more external facing role at mar so you decided about three years ago you said to take off your professional direct service hat and put on more of a personal direct service hat by becoming a foster parent. What led to that decision for you to take that leap? 'cause I know plenty of people who work at rec service social welfare, I'm one of them. Never been a foster parent. So what was that decision point for you, where you said, I wanna I wanna care for four H held or multiple children. Yeah. So definitely me, my now husband weren't married, at the time, we always knew he wanted kids, and so we always knew adoption probably be the path, we weren't tight that idea of having biological children, international adoption. Just didn't resonate. What this until he picked kind of foster care as kind of our, our out, creating. And so that's why we became foster parents kinda always knew I wanted to adopt didn't we think more into that. And then as I got more into the work, I was like, definitely it's going to be the foster care, Rome. And then I was convincing talking to my husband to get him on board with this kind of path as well was a pretty natural path for me because I think we have that end goal of creating family through it, but also helping out kids that needed a safe, reliable. So we, we reduction focused, but we were like we will take any kid, I don't care if the redefine tomorrow or two weeks, you just want kids at our home and just how it worked out..

Fisher also can reconcile the fact that some individuals have been jailed for posting jihadi content while scholars and in some cases, governments make the same practice routine. So yes, it's clear that there is at least some level of double standard less clear is whether the content in question is actually what lures recruits into the terrorist fold to begin with. There's this assumption that ISIS was particularly successful in getting young people, particularly westerners to go to Syria because of its savvy media of north Amara syndrome is a senior research fellow at the institute for strategic dialogue. And so there was a kind of causal link drawn in the minds of some policy people in law enforcement because ISIS was so good at it social media that it automatically led to this foreign fighter problem that we're seeing, but that formulation Amara syndrome says overestimates the impact of the propaganda and ignores the more significant factor to way social media messaging. If you were an ISIS wanna be you could reach out to them. You could talk to them you could get logistical advice. You could ask them who to contact when they're in Turkey to cross the border. And so it became kind of personal interaction and friendship started forming in this kind of online community of jihadists supportive started forming out of this access to these fighters..

Trump signs bill to avoid shutdown, declares national emergency
"What has the president been doing with respect to the national emergency. Because you would think the last thing he would do at right after declaring a national emergency is good Amara law go to play golf, and that's already understand the sense of urgency that seemed to be there leading up to Friday's announcement has somehow disappeared we've gotten no updates from the White House about what President Trump has been doing to respond to this national emergency that he declared on Friday is of course, a holiday weekend and many White House. Aides were with the president over the weekend. But there's no indication that there has been an effort to kind of keep this drumbeat going, and that's kind of interesting considering how often President Trump tweeted and commented nearly every public event in the last several weeks about the situation at the border. Instead, he's been preoccupy. Pied by what's been going on or what had been going on over at his Justice department, and of course, with the Muller probe. Now, one of the problems for the White House is that they're so a lot of real work to be done to identify where all of this money is coming from. And that work could be very tricky. Some of these projects at the White House has to take money from could be very popular among members of congress or controversial already. The Pentagon has said that they are not touching certain parts of money, for example, the money that might have been developed a devoted to military family housing. But as for other details there has been radio silence from the White House. And of course, as you mentioned there is the the real prospect of lawsuits the latest coming just today as the White House is facing not only potential political problem as they try to identify these sources of money, but some very legal some very serious legal issues as well. And what we have heard over the weekend. However is that the White House is not ruling out President Trump using his very first veto of his presidency to defend his executive order. Or whether it'll come to that. We don't exactly know yet. But so far President Trump has been uncharacteristically quiet about this national emergency. We'll see if that changes once he gets back to Washington. Do we know what he plans to do with respect emergencies tomorrow or the next day? Is there anything on the schedule and nothing that we know of Anderson, and and this is clearly something that the president has said is an urgent urgent priority. But we've seen this before in the past. When President Trump is beating the drumbeat of a crisis at the border. He does it usually leading up to some major event like, for example, the midterm elections. And then shortly after that event occurs.

United States, Kerry Dugan Gary and China discussed on Biz 1190 Overnight
"By more than twenty seven hundred journalists and. Analysts in more than one hundred twenty countries I'm Christine Harvey this is Bloomberg Christine good to see this morning is the. Trade spat with, China escalates the United States attempts to Europe and Japan with free trade deals face stiff resistance from France and the twenty finance ministers, meeting in, Paris France is finance minister said that the US must return to reason and rescind its tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. Before they. Can. Discuss trade deals Manis we are joined, now by the, CIO of new Amara wealth advisers it is of course Kerry Dugan Gary thank you so much for being with us here this morning We have to talk about the trade tensions don't. We and we have to talk about whether or not they are actually, having any, impact if you, take a look at this chart on GT go on your Bloomberg there it shows a, little bit of the trade rhetoric has been trickling in let's say to consumer confidence it's the university. Of Michigan survey asking. Will, stocks be higher in twelve months. Versus SNP and you can. See that, we have seen a retreat from the. Record high optimism that we've seen it's still pretty high now some people are of. The opinion we are? Seeing an impact for instance the South African.

On prophets down quite by about ten percents for this year and a quarter reports season so I do think we're gonna.

To, stick with it until, we really see the meat. Of, this and impacting perhaps a broader range of companies, that we've seen thus far yeah greed still trumping fear. At least in the US well. You have to feel for. The US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin here because of course he's in Buenos IRAs he's at the g twenty meetings he's. Meeting US trade partners what can keep. Possibly say, to them to give them some, comfort in, the face of what we've seen from Trump I think he can I mean unless we get Mr. or the president of the United States cutting back on these recent tweet which is putting. That, tariff on all five, hundred billion of the imports. That, they see from China then it's very difficult for, people to take any kind of comment from him seriously. In suggesting that some balance against. That because that's such a. Powerful statement is such an escalation of the rhetoric that we've seen and that's what the g twenty is fearing today Gary you mentioned China Morning Post auditor just the other day rare rats China's advised ninety percent of the, US needs you have vast holdings of treasuries and the one I get the distinct impression the not wet is in the one but they're not standing in the way of a slow decline is the want the. Key part for markets in the next five days I think it is I. Think that it's, almost, benign neglect to the, one that's, going on with the, Chinese authorities I think it's offset the of course some. Of the towers that have been, put in place and also got an economy. That is not as vibrant as the, US so they don't really want to tie themselves so tightly the tightening monetary conditions that we're seeing in the US at this point Gary You get the feeling that we really are in the foothills of a much more toxic risk of.
