Star of ‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ accused of wire fraud
"We're talking about the real housewives of salt lake city again. I didn't watch this. Everyone loved this season. It premiered right warm as them was involved so that was very of interest to a lotta people they made. It made it a little interesting. It's like oh. These women are talking about the mormon church right. They're talking about the mormon church and they're talking about converting 'cause she was a mormon gen sean that she was like you know what like the mormon church has been very terrible. The black people in the past. Like i'm going to convert islam. And so like she has this interesting relationship to salt lake city right so long. You understand why all these women were cast this. This happens this week. She gets arrested for multiple crimes. So allegations are wire fraud conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering. Basically what she was doing was working in this. Multi leveled multi layered scheme. They call it the business opportunity scheme and the thing which involves collecting and creating and selling lead less lanner way. Yeah well it's when you start a company and you want to kind of hit the ground running with your company. You can buy a lead list. And i was googling this on a lot of people have problems with lead list because they can reliable. They're really rely a list of people's names and numbers essentially right contact information and the information about Names and numbers. Email address all their demographics. And then you have this sort of like set group of people who probably likely to respond to whatever your company is right. Suckers is what you're saying suckers suckers and so she's developing these lists and also selling these less so she's making money on the selling of these lists which the best of my knowledge are really expensive. Like if you're starting a company and you want to buy lead list depending on the quality of the list you could be paying a ton of money right and it could be risky. And apparently there could be legal complications with even buying lists. I was reading about this. It was like beware of buying lead lists and so she was not only allegedly selling these late lists and creating these lead lists. She was working with the people who bought them so that they be using those lead lists to target. These older people susceptible people with business schemes. That were non existent and the old people would pay them a ton of money. And then jenn shaw would allegedly get a cut of that. I think i'm doing a pretty good job explaining what this is. But that's the wire fraud which is as our friend amina says that's is crime because that's always what they get rich people on that's the easiest crime to get people on because it involves receipts it's like is there. Documentation of z happening. Yes it's wire fraud.

"amina" Discussed on The Know Show
"All they have some fingerprint evidence which could also be folksy the madrid bombing appropriate day. When they had friendly mayfield. They have the fingerprints and Even the fingerprint experts that had a justice teamed there was a match and silas subsequently dumb to show confirmation bias in gathering by his faults of advocates. So i think the police need to be made aware of the fact that even sort of what seemed to be so credible scientific sources of evidence like finger crate even though source of energy Collagen the most recent signs shown even forensic pathologist can make mistakes and be led by confirmation. Buys a some evidence that they may have can sell be focused. So i think that knowledge has to be conveyed to the place de some of the evidence that you have is now you want using to tell certain theory can be wrong so at the end of the day. The goal the interview should be safe the truth to get much reliable testimony from the weakness that you have so that you can make check against the athens says. Also let's been done looking at how impetus can be used most strategically so this thing called the strategic use of evidence techniques best the tactical use of evidence technique this at least a whole other areas the commodore bane of suspect interfering but i think the is strategic use of evidence techniques Which emanated from research counting sweden Predates that says that when in office says questioning suspects in may have evidence. They shouldn't presented to the suspect straight away. They should hold onto it until the end. So you'd let a suspect give their own account and ben presenting the way the evidence that they have which might question that alibi. For example suject the tactical use of evidence says that west ferry some evidence account Saying to hold onto it bring in an appropriate point. I mean this is kind of requiring it. A great deal of skill but the most important thing is to have an investigative mindset an open-ended mindset and to be open to more than one hypothesis and i think getting that mindset is hard because we are also fighting unconscious bias non conscious processes that i believe in this comes back to While i still think it's a huge problem within the criminal justice system. Which is that when it comes to At miscarriage of justice is that we've seen I've been concerned about the high number of african americans for example in the innocence project. Ninety five i think there are the by says that can lead. That can very very difficult to eradicate so believing someone is guilty based on their race or ethnicity or even age So i think that is so so bias. Not easy to control and even with unconscious is trying. I think what we're trying to do is generate. This ended mindset and their training. And in fact the i know the non profit cold the un critical being therapy police officers very experienced high level. Police detectives the prominent and from no white for example who are not grew who tuncay cases. So they they are able to bring their experience of working on cases into training. And i think that's really important. Showing one hypothesis was pursued while other evidence was ignored an So many cases. I'm just thinking i'm speaking of the sound The exam again at a young man. Louis was convicted. Murderers was overturned on the second appeal again. The police 'cause they assumed it was sam they didn't question although witnesses include and even the ones they questions that could have pursued one of them have the mode weapon..
How to Connect to Your Humanity and Change the World
"Today. We're going inside the head of Young Pueblo Aka Diego Perez. He's a writer poet and activist who explores his own mind to create poems about the mind. His poems or meditations in themselves and often talk about meditation teachings directly. He's also instagram famous with three hundred, twenty, nine, thousand millennial followers who receive as simple visual poems about meditation daily in their feet. Welcome young blow. Thank you so much for having me Emmett set of the year. Yeah, it's wonderful conversation. Awesome. So let's just start in dive right in because most people probably curious about the first thing they heard young Pueblo like who is this young logo is noted to meet the Guy Behind Proba tell us about young Pueblo on how that came out. was. Name that came to me a bunch of years ago. I'd say back sometimes it's funny thirteen I think the name came to me, and then over time I really developed a meaning. Around honey or team twenty fifteen I realized that I wanted to take great seriously as it was around the time where I saw that. Betaine is having a real effect in my less democracy game meditation course back in. July of two thousand twelve and after doing a few silence and David Austin courses I realized that a lot of the burden that was sort of limiting my mind's in regards to. Zaidi sadness where. They weren't totally radical, but there were decreasing and I was noticing that. I, was really feeling better and I felt like I had more choices in my mind as I could see the world a little more clearly, and then I can navigate my own actions in a way that was much more productive to my personal happiness. So In, sort of pushed me into wanting to righty might people now that healing yourself was actually a real possibility has to be. I know that for myself. I kind of went into meditation has an experiment just as I was always curious about it and it felt like the right fit so I didn't really know that's what I was Gonna get out I. Think I knew that I was going to learn a bunch of things but I didn't know that I was actually going to feel better and it wasn't until after of delving deeper into the process into the actual practice I started seeing that I so lows better sort of into writing. and. The idea of young Bible kind of really warm related around it's my understanding of the world that we are all very young collectively. If you take all humanity were all very young you know it doesn't matter if you're ninety years old is you take us as a whole giant collective we have so much to learn. The bucs Amina's for. Up when we were little children. When we went to school, we were trying to simplest things are teachers were really. Trying to get us to not hurt each other to tell the truth to be kind to one another and to generally just you know it's even like clean up ask yourself things are seem so simple that we can do as individuals but as a human collective e don't know how to do these things at all. A. Me. got. Sort of a signal that. We have a lot of growing up to as humanity and a lot of I. Think a lot of that growing up center happened during the century. We have so many big challenges ahead of us that will hopefully help us row. That this sort of. A. Renaissance, I would call it. That's happening around the mind. Is GonNa be a big big part of humanity mature. SO THAT'S A. Really helpful perspective. So somebody who has a two year old myself I spent a lot of time teaching him some very, very basic things like heating is bad. I'm sorry in some days he's amazing at it in Sunday's he just gets brought by his own emotions, his own desires and hitting back at the window. In it's interesting to look at our humanity as being a very similar place lessons that we've learned over and over again, our childhood yet they're returning in the adult hood of the individual, but still the sort of childhood of the collective. Beautiful by. Where do you see our evolution going? What do you think the path down that road is I think it's interesting because people have very different aspirations. So I wouldn't want to try to say you know all human existence is in this direction but I would say that to get to a place where we're not arming one another where we. Are Mentally ill in ourselves. That army another as arguing when sell it doesn't take. Much Work Right. Having that understanding that you know is literally to my benefits and not you is very different from what sailing Total Liberation Enlightenment's. That's actually a very easier accomplish many think that's where we're really heading as a humanity in our evolution that we're trying to lift ourselves up into that understanding that Oh right? It's not. It's not to my benefit at all to harm you in any way it actually helps my personal life to support you in your freedom, your sixty etcetera. So forth, so me I like to think about it in. In the immediate. Immediate future being like next year is not like the whole seizure. SABA. But it really is trying to get ourselves to that point where or. Individuals in because that's an idea that we've had. Throughout, all of history. Having an idea intellectually is very different from being out experiences, experience Adiba yourself or deeply being able to you'll that you know that it's your benefits are mothers I think Ruby's different practices Asami different people are engaging. Different introspective medias including meditation. That that will help get. To that point where it's like Oh right now, of course, not only do I in my mind but I. Feel my body and now I'm GonNa find better solutions than our.
Life in Limbo
"Amina welcome to the show man. So happy to have you. Thank you for having me congratulations on your most recent album limbaugh. How did you approach thinking about creating this album? Is the follow too good for you. I just started about the word legacy a lot more when meeting them both. So I wanted to make something that wasn't just super current to the times of a more. A. Ten years down on. About the title limbo. What does that mean? A lot of people thought it was speaking to the Times that we're in because I know that we're all currently in the. Title for a good year and a half for me I felt like I was stuck between two places from a young man to over. Kind of just figuring it out personally. But I definitely think people are connected with the project although I will say the day drive limbo twitter had a strong reaction to one track in particular becky. In attract, you talk about an interracial relationship with a white girl I kinda the challenges there was also within your family. There are a lot of folks who were kind of bothered by the song I'm curious like did you expect any of the response that you? I think me and my boys off knew that that was going to happen to immediately went into thinking was an ode to White One stories more. So about a black important Oregon stories is about me and middle school it completely woke me up to the Society of Portland what it's like growing up there and and how you look at truth. So I didn't really WANNA. Like shy away from that. You know there's a lot going on in Portland right now just between the uprisings and federal agents snatching protesters off the streets I visited Portland before I got a lot of stairs understand why? What are you making sense of what do you think of what's going on your city right now I'm a bit bitter sweet on it and I said that multiple times because as a black person going important organ, we never felt welcomed. We never felt like the city cater to us more than the scene is a liberal city but has so much racism behind the feds. And the police have so much work to do but the community of Portland, the people protesting and have a lot of work to do as well. People who are on the front lines are the same people kicking out black families out of their neighborhoods and gentrifying held out of these neighborhoods. So they're kicking the black family out but have a black lives matter sign on. Yeah I mean and it's not just Portland is mini CDs across the country that had to kind of do that working and wrecking live the fact that like this isn't something that just kind of crept up out of nowhere I wanNA. Come back to the album of bit. You share how the Becky was something you were thinking about in middle school you know that the subject matter there is there a track on the album that you kind of most cashes where you are right now the track burden? Really shows you where I'm at mentally I just kind of talk about my friends my life would I've been up to.

Know we as cautioned designers, we are behind the scenes, and nobody really knows what our job really titles I think. It's kind of hard. You know what war goes into it in the preparation, and really all the creativity that has really come from Ma to create these characters from pages of the script they. They really just kind of very vaguely are described to us, and we really have to kind of be the psychologists kind of like a you know a detective to find out who they are deeply.

Mean You said you're making the rounds? You're all over vogue. You're all over instagram. People are are recreating favorite clueless moments. And I mean what does it feel like to have been part of a film that is still so much a part of pop culture even to this day after two decades it still so fresh and so relevant, and so loved is incredible I mean it's truly it's like A. One lifetime situation lighting that one can have that that something. Do you do out of love? You know because you don't set up to do the best session film of the universe but right. Thing, you know you, you I mean I. Am at fashion designer from training, and then I got into the question. Quebec doorway, and you know when I met amy on the pilot pilot and get picked up tablet. We creatively just connected so strongly. She loved it I was in Europe. I grew up in Europe. Seven different point of view fashion more European, and that's what the film needed. So when she wrote she called me, said the girl. I really want you to do this. To bring something so fresh and fashion forward something that's not on the street. Because of the time it was all grunge. She knows all everybody was wearing their. PLATIN- Baggy Pants, and was oh. Kurt Cobain Nirvana and of fashions in the street, so those nothing to go from everything had to be invented, not taken from the runways Paris Amina Milan share. Would the only probably daddy flew her there? She probably had the tickets in the on the day and was able to know things that she liked then everything had to be translated into the high school. Because you know amy is director of the night. I want this to be very useful, very. Very very sweet, very feminine. You know girly and that's kind of what we are changing from French fashion. Forward. Of course, it had to felt high school's head to sell their young girls because they had to feel pick, and I think part of the love for this film to the, even though they're a high fashion, and that is amazing of funded. As they felt authentic, the they really were beloved in the end that you knew who share was nearly the aunt was and out of. That feeling that emotional feeling thing, and that's why the film has lived so long because it's such emotional connection that people have to film you know with the fashion with kind of making you feel good.

Zion leaves NBA bubble for 'urgent' family matter
"All right one to turn to this story from inside the bubble, and it's a big one the Pelicans announcing yesterday the Williamson left the NBA bubble yesterday morning. Because of under undisclosed urgent family medical matter now Williamson intends to return at some point here's this coach Alvin Gentry. Don't know anything right now from the standpoint of. Coming back and you know obviously us. We've discussed supportive. Amina's family and their privacy doing this time right now, you know. We played forty four games without him and. You know we have top stretching, and we also had a stretch for. We won twelve out of sixteen. Without Him, so obviously, he's a great player that we'll miss, but the one thing that we've always talked about even when we went through times is that. Next Man. Marc Spears joins US live from inside the bubble at Disneyworld mark. Seems a little unclear as to why he left. What are you hearing about that about why he left at this point? Look the PELICANS are keeping it really really close to the vest, and they've been like that all all season. Way Him, you know this is still a teenager very very protective of their future star, and it's a family matter so I certainly understand that, but when it comes to him coming back, Ryan is really complicated. Absence of seven days or less, he s a quarantine. Four days upon return to the bubble with negative tests needed each day. Longer than a week. He has quarantine for four days. If he has a negative test the final day seven days he has gone. Without a required COA testing he will quarantine for ten days, so the Pelicans will debut. On July thirtieth they're one of four teams that play in the first day to resumption. It's not a lot of time between now, and then they have their first criminals, and just a few days, so yeah. The PELICANS certainly have a lot to worry about in their hopes of trying to get back to the playoffs, Yeah and we certainly wish Zion Williamson, and is it well with this family matter I mean that's first and foremost here hoping they're okay, but I look at this as well and I say without him. What are their chances of moving far into the playoffs structure? Like Alvin said you know. They played forty four games without him. Brandon Ingram the all star. He played most of those games at power forward. Without Zion, but once I came back. He only missed one game, and they have a stretch for by the name of Niccolo Meli. Not Not too hot says Zion has not the game design has I think the average is like seven games seven points a game. He would likely replace Zayn at power forward with Ingram staying in the small force spot, and I. Think drew holiday, said it best. He said you know. As much as it hurts to say, we've done it before in terms of playing without Zayn.
Inside Washington's Name Change
"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.

"Heron Africa that time one of the things that I learned very early on is that we have to be very careful of the kind of Hubris that Americans brain to situations, assuming that we know was needed on ceiling that we have all the answers, assuming that we can walk into a situation and know how they are feeling so one of the things that I learned to practice early on in the in my work and philanthropy apy was listening, listening to our employees, listening to the representatives of the communities where these. These factories are operations. Resided listening to. People who would approach a company for for funding, and to understand that the way that we do things not necessarily going to be a hundred percent applicable, both in terms of the structures and systems of consideration that his applied for grant, but most importantly how funds would be applied in ways that would bring longstanding relief, benefit or change to a community. So listening very carefully developing a sense the I hope to what we're different cultural. And learning to be very flexible. Co Create. We couldn't just drop down from the top down. This is how it's going to go, and that's sometimes man having to negotiate back at. Headquarters, a different way of doing things on behalf of those communities, but if you don't listen if you don't ask questions. If you're not curious than certainly, you leave a lot on the table. That could be really important more to develop into mind. You know one of the things about this is such. A close connection between Bisa truly listened and examines is talking about and the role of a leader who really confronts a situation like the one we're in today, and of course that's. amplified by the discussion that we're having throughout the world, but certainly here in the US about you know bridging racial separation and and class differences, and all of that they're really just come to the fore, because of and and the current disturbances. Some one thing if you could talk a bit about the structural discrimination that you see that, of course you and I have had lots of chances to discuss over the years. But you know in particularly the other day. You and I had a really heartfelt conversation about of all of this.

Eradicating Abuse Of Women in Yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
"Hello and welcome back to this episode of the sacred. We import podcast a radically in the abuse of women in Yoga why? Madden's Mottley is back here to talk about her fantastic campaign to meet Yoga's safe place for women with the Yoni shocked he movement. I'M GONNA. Let this one speak for itself. ooh is fantastic. Again is packed with information and all the links we mentioned are in the show notes. If you do want to support this, you do get what a get involved in any way, then you. Can there lots of different ways really fundamentally. This is to make yoga a safe place and to restore as a healing tool. So he goes here is. Mortally welcome back to the PUCK customer. Thank you for inviting me might melanie. Thank you at will honor an oppression to pin here with. So Yoni shock to the movement. Where did it come from Anwar is? This is a great question. Okay, so Yoni Shaquoti literally it means source power, or you could translate it as as count power. It's the power of the life. Force is the name of the I wrote eight years ago and I finished writing at years ago. My intention without book was to liberate the practices of Yoga for women for us to have as freedom practices. You know to to liberate us to support us in our. In our unfolding as within feminine cycles, basically to get a hold of yogurt and. Shake up and let women get access to what we needed. And so that's what I thought would happen when I wrote the book put out, but what's happened is that there were revelations of abuse of women within yoga. Many people are totally unaware of this I. Did know about it when the book was released on Me Admire, editor actually decided I'd written a whole piece and it was censored. We cut it out and it was about some of the beginning revelations of these abuses. Now this was pre me to. It was pre me, too, so that came out, and I wanted to WHO Yoga to change and be wore women friendly woman centric. You know and. It sort of helped, but not enough, and what's happened recently is more and more revelations of come abuses, financial, sexual physical everything you can think of in almost every single yoga school law of Yoga. Yoga training organizations so basically enough is enough Yoni shot team movement. Arose as a way to. Just put a stop to this said that the what we're trying to do is to eradicate yoga. Eradicate Yoga. Sorry, Iraq quite the abuse of women in Yoga, which is an abusive yogurts, well, I think is a it's a freedom tool, so we radical the abuse of women in Yoga, and to reclaim yoga as a tool for. Planetary Healing for justice. I'm for freedom. So, it's a, it's A. It's a co- for Justice in healing. A of women have read. The book stepped up pretty much. Anyone who's ever been a yoga class up. Listen up on entre Israel is raising awareness. Campaign is a movement in the sense that. I'm an educator can really do is is educate so I'm I'm raising propagating a public awareness and there's a crowd funding campaign to raise money. To. Fund public, awareness and education campaign that could run for. For for years. Until everybody knows and will know then then everybody's Saif. I just felt like my daughter isn't going to be safe in those places. Nobody's daughter safe in those places. We all need to know what's going on. And so we can actually reclaim this amazing. Positive Force in the world. From the clutches of the Patriarchy you. Know How it is. That's the plan and when you talk about like the clutches of the Patriarchy I think we all know the obvious sorts of abuse that are out there. Some women are getting raped some being molested abused in different ways, and they said the more obvious ones that women are able to step up to say. Hey, this is happened. It's not a K.. I I need some hail in an. For everyone to band together and support what am interested in talking to you about as well is the subtle ways that the disempowerment of women We moved into practices so that it becomes almost like a grooming process and prep for intrinsic abuse that then unfortunately can, and sometimes does gets passed on from women to other women. Absolutely you have nailed it. I could say that I mean within some organizations as trafficking, Ripe Sexual Assault. It's it's criminal Sex Crimes on. People convicted for them, but what you're describing is what enables abuse to happen how how that happen in a in an organization or a teaching dynamic that supposed to be about liberation. The way it happens is insidious. What can happen is that you have a whole culture? What's it's it's is could by stabbed rhythm. People just stand by a normalized this stuff now. Some people are beneficiaries of this. They benefit from it because they've got proximity to power, so the that procuring the girls for the Gurus on this does happen. They traffic in the mall, everybody Europe and all over the world. So that can happen, so there's that, but this bystander ism is actually the kind of culture that really. Enables this abuse. What happens is even in a situation like when you step into A. A class at run by particular traditional. What have you they line? You'll up like soldiers. You know why Islam Anyway, but they line you all up like sodas and person at the front is telling you what to do. Even if you feel your body, that day is cooling for something different. We've got sense that we go. Go along. You do what you're told. They know best. Is this sense we? Devolve like abdicate our power to the people outside of us because they're the experts, and they know best Annella loin you and correct you. An offer knows alignments and corrections and basic instructions given in this extraordinarily Imbalance kind of way there is no power or Given to the student, none whatsoever you know best, do as you're told. The Guru has the grace to come and correct you. Sometimes, it's very it. Sexual assault happens in clauses. That's what happened in the string of. Over decades I'm people just stood by and let go on, so it was actually normalized a not protest. What that means is that you can be in an environment where really quite abusive things are happening the time the sometimes people are bullied I don't if you've been in Nevada, you know you take the Piss out the I knew all the question. Anybody who says well. This doesn't feel good for me. Because, you're not good enough, or this doesn't feel right to me. Will you don't know any better? Rather than actually giving people power, and saying no listening to your intuitive voice, which is course what we're trying to do? In the the women's empowerment work, you listen to the the the rhythms of your psycho. Listen to how it feels in your body in actually what happens in Yoga is very. Very often the opposite of that, so what you get is a culture where it's perfectly normal for for for a woman, especially a woman Amina because I'm talking about all you know natural rhythmic cycles of our menstruation or of all menopause experiences, and they're kind of overridden. They're all a bit inconvenient in a classroom member. Talking with you about this before you go a pair of Preston and Of Women's buttocks. Just gets in the way so so basically it's kind of inconvenient female, but like it's a privileged for you to learn its practices for Mason that basic idea, which isn't helpful.
20 Minutes With The CMO Of Crossrope
"Well surge. Welcome to the show firstly. Thank you very much for taking your time. Talk today now. Thanks for having been really interested in this topic. It's something that I've always tried to do. The pulse like I'm sure many people that have customers of the past said they struggle with it and they give up so we're talking today about jump. Raven crossroads in particular. Can you give us a bit? More context about crossroad. An-and really how you came to be involved with with with business. Yeah absolutely so cross up. It's a it's a unique jump rope. Workout experience We created some time ago. Really with with this idea of giving people a funny way to get fit you know wherever they go And we'll get into the benefits of jumping rope. I'm sure but I joined the business back in two thousand and fifteen but really been jumping rope probably for the past ten twenty years. I'd say I think I I. I picked it up when I started boxing back university on known to go to tool for endurance and whatnot and I found that it helped a lot with my work that I played a lot of basketball growing up and still do and then you know even when I put the boxing gloves down. It's just one of those tools that have always kept around in my gym bag and enjoyed using it as a one tool. Eventually a came across the crossroad system. Back in two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen when it? Kinda I got introduced to the market became close friends with our CEO. Right right now and in the system similarly changed the game for me. Kind of became one of my go-to tools. It's really because of its unique design about our systems. We've created interchangeable set of jump. Ropes where you can easily clip in different weights and ropes in and out of your handles and that gives you more engaging in Bristol workout. Then you know what you get with a single. Abc Rope so similar to how you'd maybe have a wide range of dumbbells in gym and we like to offer different weights. Ropes that help with different fitness fitness goals. And so another thing that we really focus on on like jump. Ropes are ropes are S- are primarily designed for jump rope fitness so we've built on specifically along with their APP workouts. Help you get lean build endurance and build strength so they're primarily. Ah Fitness tool and with that. We've we've Created a companion fitness APP. That gives you access to you. Know hundreds of really workouts You can follow along to and do do anywhere really in thirty minutes or less which considering these schedules these days. Everyone's on the go. All the time is exactly what we need to even now the situation of like staying indoors. It's perfect time to pick up a rope and just do that anywhere wherever you in a house for example yeah exactly Amina Sometimes You know we'll get a lot of questions about the benefits of jumping rope. And some of them are obvious and some of them are not obviously great for building endurance and Cardio floodway but the portability of the tool especially in today's day and age on the ability to take your workouts anywhere and like you mentioned them at home is really important for a lot of people you know even before the craziness of today. We talked to a lot of people people who love the ability to be able to squeeze in a workout at lunchtime. You know we've pulled our community recently just to kind of get a sense of the versatility and different ways. People are adding jumper workouts into their routine and at the list really goes on. I mean some like I mentioned earlier. They use it does warm up others use it. As a workout finisher others added to their strengthen hit circuits some use it in place of Iran or combine it with Yoga practice. And so it's really. It's a really interesting tool for anyone who's looking to add it to whatever it is that they're all redoing. I hadn't even thought about the benefits to things like footwork. When we're talking about boxing honestly stereotypically in films and such you see people always jumping rope and you think that's obviously that warm up endurance. But you don't even consider the additional supplementary benefits like footwork which is obviously such an important parts of sports like basketball boxing even things like NFL. Everything thoughts you still need to have quite good agility. And that's the such supplementary benefit the thing necessarily comes to mind. Yeah no absolutely and that's something. I saw firsthand when I first started using it back in the day in day in. And it's something that I feel like. Sometimes there's a bit of a stigma with jumping road that you need to be well coordinated or athlete to be successful with it. And that's something we've really tried to think about when we built the cross rope system and what we've learned by running workshop shops especially early on is that we've really found a way to drastically accelerate the learning learning curve and That religious goes into something. I'm sure we'll hit on. But it's the the weighted rope aspect and so when a lot of people. I started jumping rope or they try to learn how to jump rope. It's typically with the CDC ROPE. Something you'd you'd find out that. Nisar Department Store what most gyms Carey in trouble with that. Is that throat this to light? And so if you're struggling with coordination or tiny becomes really difficult to tiny jumps and that's where a lateral a lot of mistakes in triplets. Happened in where the frustration comes from. And so what we've done is we've introduced a range of weighted ropes in for example when we speak with our customers were just getting started. We often recommend a half pound. Roper Market Lean set and it's ideal getting started or because what it does is it slows down your rotation and that extra little bit of resistance makes it easy to feel the rope turning around your body and that helps with the timing the coordination so you know we have seen people who try jumping rope with plastic. Pbc ropes. I should say in the past go from struggling to string along fifty to one hundred jumps within five minutes so I think the that piece of it. The coordination is super important from both sides of it. You're already in athlete. Experienced Stephanie. Going TO HELP IMPROVE. foot speed. And if you've never jump rope before you feel like you're not at that level yet. In terms of coordination there are ways where the system kind helps you learn this particular skill and exercise very quickly. I think what's touchback on? Then is that you mentioned. There is some stigma. Wave jumping rope. We think because of it being portrayed in films and other forms of media crossovers and all sorts. It makes us being the we. The average person have tried it before. Call just dive in and do it. And I've always said to myself the arm too heavy footed or to not like my feet. I'm really bad at jumping rope so I just stopped myself from other trying even though I know. Be a helpful tool. So how are you trying to help? People get over the stigma to understand that it can be for everyone. And if they gave the Patrol I really understand what you mean by. Having a slight resistance failed to get more controlled. How you hoping people vs into that transition of like item do this. We try to tackle it a few different ways. And I'll tell you a quick story. I mean when we were at the Arnold Classic in Ohio a couple of years ago you know they have like two hundred thousand people walking by and we held a little sixty second challenge at our booth where it was basically a you know trying to do as many jumps as you can with a one pound and winner at the end you know. We gave away a couple of a couple of sets and it was really opening to us to see just how little people know about way. Ropes feel that you get and it's and it's you know when we see you know big guys come by and trying to do this challenge and the just getting absolutely winded within sixty seconds looks on their faces really kind of told everything and so for us. It's been a challenge to kind of share that experience through our marketing and through our storytelling and saint goes with you. Know getting started because of the stigma because of the challenges people may have faced in the past and what you may be seeing in the media the ways we try to approach it is really through education and so we try to share the experiences of other jumpers in our community who have kind of gone through that experience themselves we have a lot of tutorials and beginner oriented. Workouts are fitness at and so we help guide people through those where it really helps. You know how to get started. I feel with other jump ropes. You don't really get the content piece in that sometimes make makes it really difficult because you you get the rope in. You're not sure what to do with it. And then you know we I think the most interesting pieces just People don't know what to compare it to the weighted rope aspects. Because they've never tried anything like that and so we really try to make it as easy as possible to give cross rope a try so you know we we have a sixty day. Return policy rarely used. You know we we tell people hate. Get the ropes experience for yourself. See The difference. If you don't like it we'll take the we'll take it back and give a full refund in through those efforts. We've got a lot of people to give the system a try and once you try it. You instantly know the difference. He has certainly see it for yourself. Because when you feel that resistance heavy rope turning around your body at it's a game changer. As it was for me when I first tried

I didn't like it depending solely on me but the more I watched my brothers and growing up I start liking wrestling. I started getting better and eventually I got better than they were and then I became came the best of my family by win the Olympic medal. Yeah 'cause wrestling in America's be of a high school institution because we have it starts when you're serve in elementary school visit. Almost every school has a program right so junior high high school college. It's very big over there. So it's it's part of our culture because a lot of people call for boxing to be put into schools as part of the curric- it used to be in the schools and there's a call for it become back and installs obviously a lot of discipline and everything else and you see the the problems that society has these with Nayef Cram and gang culture and everything else. I think. Think that programs like that rather than in the states and boxing programs and the stats are in the UK. Only going to help us. What point did you? What age did you think this could really be serious for me as a career I would say around thirteen fourteen? I started having a lot more success and got to the high school level and I lost success there and it just carried over to college and I didn't really. Oh you think about Olympics. When I was younger I just thought about that season and if I could win the championship that year and every year I continue to win which Olympic I'm big city one nine hundred ninety six Atlanta Atlanta well? Is that your proudest moment. Out of everything you've done in your career. Olympic gold medal surpasses says anything. Yeah it was You know even bigger than anything. I've accomplishing wwe. Yeah Yeah Imagine. That was a kind of Golden Olympics for the US esteem cousteau was the homeland picked. Michael Johnson it like the basketball team is Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal came one. Those guys Gail Devers. Even Andre Agassi won the tennis and we're legends in that team. What was it like to be off in the Olympic Village? Seeing those people it was pretty cool. You know you knew it was special when you went to opening ceremonies and you saw the athletes there and the guys you mentioned they were the guys and girls that were participating that were already professionals professionals and they made it you know viable for pros to end up competing in the Olympics and so you saw basketball and tennis. Ns and now even golf. So the the pros are going and winning medals as well now so those of it because one of the things the Olympics exp boxing is one of the only sports where there is a kind of. There's another trajectory and other policy if you win a medal for of sports certainly minority sports. That aren't necessarily a lot of TV coverage the Olympic medal can often be the kind of end of the road. There isn't anywhere else. I speak to go resting very well. Be One of those is and and so for you that amazing so the question I was going to ask you without. FMA How to beg then as it was Ni- would you have took that pop rather than the wwe without a doubt. Yeah wow it wasn't at that point. UFC struggling they offered me a ten fight. Deal for one hundred fifty grand and that was our biggest contract they ever offered. This was in ninety seven and then sound very good to me so I decided decide to go pro wrestling and by two thousand one two thousand and two you have see was kicking in high gear but I was already drawn in and a pro wrestling scene. So how how did the what was the chain of events that let you to the door of of the W W well in one thousand nine hundred sixty minutes man offer me a contract. I flew up to meet with them and I wasn't interested. I had a lot of people. Tell me you know you grew up. You never watched the Fake what you did was real a lot of my peers. Were telling me don't do it. So my agent through the contract the way and I'd say in one thousand nine hundred star watching Watching stone. Don't go Steve Austin the Rock and however flannel. They weren't how entertaining they were. I thought man I could do this. I think it'd be a lot of fun and you have see at the time. Time wasn't going anywhere so I went with a wwe. What was the the early memories? Because I imagine wrestling's one of the toughest sports there is a is a amateur wrestling but of red. If in a few places that is a pro wrestling were were incredibly tough. What were your first memories of some of the first lessons and training training sessions? You did all the first day. When I started training I quit? I took three bumps and my neck the pain I was getting my neck and back it was like this isn't normal. You don't it's like self abuse and you know we bump on plywood. It's a lot like this and There's no spring underneath It is self mutilation. You're you're basically beating that crap on yourself because you're allowing. I mean people were throwing around and take your head off with a clothesline and the object. You're bumping on his plywood so it was very abusive in the first day. I I didn't like it and I decided to hang in there. I came back the next day and I continued on. I got used to bumping and and used the pain so eventually didn't bother me as much but I'm paying for it. Now see a leg generation before ours. My Dad's generation. They would not really look favorably upon the tablet Ali. But what these guys do is take some serious stick their body. There's some serious injuries and stuff. It's you know your two weight world champion. And you've taken many punches to the head and body is is anyone WanNa taking a lifetime. What is what is pain to you guys? How do you manage pain? Do you ever get used to it as ever become less painful or do you just become used to living in that place. It's something you get used to. And as a young boxer I think Jimmy Moore. My trainer is spoke about this and said that you can tell from a very young age or someone hazard or not and it's normally a kids barn and if they take a punch annoys on they don't cry and they punch back it's like you can't make the Paean it's like I don't know what obviously adrenaline carries you through a lot of it but it's not like a real specific. If you punch me in the arm Ni- I would feel feel more pain than actually punching ahead fate strange sensation. It's not nice but it's very very hard up. Manassas gray but law detainees. I've not been able describe pain amateur wrestling pro wrestling. What are the worst kind of pain that you can describe? And how do you deal with those. I think the worst pain I had and I still have it now as an amateur wrestling right before the Olympics I got thrown on my head and I broke my neck and I didn't know it. I kept wrestling again that day. I ended up winning the US Open and that put me in a good position to make the Olympic team for the Olympic. Trials made me the top guy so I didn't have the Russell the mini tournament Face the winner of the mini tournament. I was the guy that the mini tournament faced. So Oh i I I couldn't get passed by any doctor doctor. Wood Passer would allow me to wrestle so I eventually found a doctor and and he said the only thing you can do. You can't train you just would just stick in a neck with Nova game and you won't feel the pain. And he was right every match. I had at the trials and the Olympics. I got twelve shots. Novacaine the back of my neck couldn't feel it for about an hour and Russell and then an hour later I'd be in a lot of pain. You won the Olympic Games uh-huh with a broken neck that's insane quotes and wwe also. Yeah yeah I broke both my hands. The last vote doesn't ideal and it wasn't wasn't nice but it's hard to imagine when the pinnacle of Your Sport Olympic Games to be competing against the top guys in the world with a broken neck does that. I can't imagine boxing. We're broken hand. We are called you a few weeks ago and you said this is the most pain I think I've ever been in the radon especially she'll have a little bit of bone removed from the right time but there there was a a tendon that had ripped and it needed stitch together without that Han was give me more than than the left hand which has seven unscrews and appropriate and at night. He's but just because it had to have some work done the Tandon It was It wasn't wasn't nice. I WanNa ask you a question.

Sustainability goals can be the wind under the wings of the UN at 75: deputy chief
"Twenty twenty marks the beginning of the UN's Decade of Action Post to hit the goals of the twenty thirty agenda for sustainable development. And also the seventy fifth anniversary of the organization when I interviewed Amina Mohammed. The deputy secretary general about the decade of Action. She she outlined the many reasons to be positive about the impacts. The agenda is having on people's lives and the momentum that is growing around the world. Ms Muhammed accepted however but progress towards reaching the sustainable development. Goals has not been as fast as hoped I think that when we were designing the STD's and we gavel the ambition shirow them in September. Twenty fifteen we thought we would hit the ground running and start implementing so I think expectations have not been met. But I think what we have done and that we've engaged the world and we know that these goals are very much owned by everyone We see a lot of activity socializing the goals and what they mean a now. The lifted to how we can implement them so in terms of engagement absolutely We haven't met the expectations of Implementation. This is almost five years in and this year. We had the summit the first I G summit lots of finished his out of that and you officially launched the decade of Action Sir. How would you characterize the mood from the stakeholders that you spoke to. I think it's very over excited about us. Finding ways to reengage re imagine how we can get this ambition done in people's lives So I I really did see that you know. We were providing an opportunity. Ten years And let's get the work done. Let's roll up our sleeves. That's really accelerate and get to scale the actions that we need to take whether they are investments or the numbers of people that will get into school The skills that will be acquired girls for instance coding as you bring technology into people's lives number of women boards so that parody becomes the reality relative having to find the hook each goal and say let's go after that and each year follow up. What are we doing in each constituency and in each country in region to make that very real and can you think of any specific examples. You mentioned girls coating for example but some more examples on the ground where this is going to make because substantial difference to people's realize I think if we follow the money to ensure that government supporting investments in health services. And so you see how. Many people looks really getting access clinic by clinic village by village. How many community healthcare workers have been increased to get people's medicines to them to ensure they are taking care of the prenatal care for women so she gets to hospital in time to deliver safely or as I said with goals. Coding put a number on it. How many millions do we want. Automatically improves an education system and opens up the possibilities of connecting technology with education. Girls and boys alike like I think. There are opportunities for the full value chain in agriculture. For instance that you bring younger people into it because technology the way you would use drones not backbreaking To to so a field. But you've got these young. What do they call them now. Agro techies who are now engaged. I I think that's something that we would follow to see. Are we opening up those open to opportunities interpreter. Ship are we putting investments behind that. Stop putting numbers of them in countries. These jobs come into the market. Are they being taken up. For every investment that we make in infrastructure transitions for instance empower moving moving for fossil fuels to sustainable energy. What does that mean in terms of jobs. Young people not just access to power. Does it create the environment for better a chance at succeeding within TREPCA sheep. Because you have power not just access in your home So I think you can pick something up in every goal from hunger all the way through to the partnerships. AH ships traveled frequently. You get to have a big picture of what's happening around the world. What are some of the most inspiring things that you've seen recently Some of the most inspired when I landed in a retriever. A place where people didn't see very much hope after decades of the conflict that has happened there. This new rapproachment approach Moan and going out into the countryside to see a woman and her son and family who were involved in in dairy farming Tom And had started this ten years ago and suddenly coming to fruition because the borders opened with business opportunities in Sudan and in the UAE. It was quite incredible cheese that I went to see was being produced. They're bringing it back here and everybody in this office saying this is second to none. This is amazing now coming out with such so harsh environment where everybody thinks things could not possibly work. That for me was hope that I saw as an incredible moment on the the other side of it the SDG's talk about justice. They talk about peace in goal. Sixteen so being in Afghanistan and seeing young women who are participating in negotiations to bring peace to their country and really understanding all aspects of the peace agenda was very inspiring because we need to bring anything to them except open up the space and encouraged international community to make sure women are at the table Other opportunities how girls again I will still talk. Talk about girls solutions into education and in one particular case while we're a young person from Kenya who was bringing in food food in a different way to children to ensure that they got nutrition and that there was a Ah Partnership in paying for that. Both with government comment With the private sector and with families and really just seeing hundreds of children who would never have had a nutritious meal half one in a really cool way. It wasn't presented as charity charity but very much is part of the education. That was getting now. There is one in the room. Climate change climate action. We can't avoid. That is just one of the seventeen sustainable development goals is obviously cuts across many. If not all of them a D. thing that we could be moving to situation towards a more positive active role. The complained that we can see around the world. I think out of every disappointment there is a silver lining and the cloud the next day and the silver lining. We see he is that we can fall back on the climate summit and the commitments made by communities by business spy mayors by local governments and we must pick that up and take that forward with with a lot of acceleration and ambition to try to get to each and every country particularly the top in meters but also not to forget a smaller Smaller more move honorable countries where we have to deal with investments in adapt because while we're trying to convince the bigger meters to do the right thing and be on the right side of history. We have I've got people who are living Climate Change and we need to do something about trying to fix the the adoption investment gap which is huge. So I think this is a very exciting journey to cop six in Glasgow that will be the next milestone that we look to to hit. And I think that we've got the world mobilized and I think it's pretty unstoppable so while governments are trying to Cost correct. I think we are mobilizing and convening an inspiring The world to keep going and not to give up and to keep pushing on the action begins as of twenty two thousand eight. Can you just walk me through a couple of big tent pole moments. That are really going to put this this summer. I think putting it on the map when the secretary general will have his speech that he has them to member states in the rest of the world On how he intends to do that that they will be a couple of moments when we will have big events that are either the nature based solution summit or the by diversity won the transportation big big moments when we are reinvesting recommitting to some of the. SDG's in one way or another but they'll also be the UN at seventy five and that happens in September number that's a reflection moment on on what the world expects for us a need for us as United Nations. That's going to be a time when the moment for the S._d._G.'s. Will I hope be the wind under the wings of U._N. at seventy five.

Hello and welcome back to the world this week where exploring the place beyond a rock, which are NASA probe is reached four billion miles from us. The most distant object man's technologies yet visited a little closer to home. China has landed a probe on the far side of the moon benefiting. Mankind says Beijing, but should we fear? It's global reach never mind. It's extraterrestrial one and should Bangladesh's Prime Minister be embarrassed by her election success, but I the earth and the moon are locked in an eternal dance as each moves on it's axis. So does the other which means there's a side of the moon? The earth's never seen until this week when following a virtual news blackout. China's space agency announced that Chinese four a probe had successfully landed on terrain fall rougher than natto which Diehl Armstrong took one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind. The head of. The agency says China will carry on exploration in the hope of benefiting mankind skeptics might see that as a good public relations statements rather than a reflection of China's true objectives. Michael Bristow are East Asia editor came into the world this week studio to discuss whether it's time to see China as a force for good. Although a couple of different things I see there's the science behind it. And it was a genuine scientific achievement is also the politics about it. It's a propaganda coup for the Chinese leader Xi Jinping his big theme since he came to power was promoting something which he calls, the Chinese dream essentially returning China to its proper place as one of the world's leading countries. And part of that is to put China at the full front of science and technology. Of course, at also has an economic spinoff because it allows China to develop technology, which can be used to make money that China is a signatory to wool the regulation that exists the green zone outer space activities. So there's no suggested the Chinese are going to start kind of setting up mining robots than the moon or anything like that. It's going to be collaborative. And they was stressing public comments about their commitment to expanding knowledge for mankind. But I suppose people will think back down on earth. China's approaches Norway's so collaborative certainly you would be right. Be slightly wary of those claims the Americans have banned the Chinese from being involved in space program because they're concerned about the transfer of technology in China stealing secrets, but even when we're not talking about space. There were all kinds of concerns about whether China's development of technology is for the benefit of everybody or whether it's just for the benefit of China. A perfect example of that would be the telecom company hallway, which is perhaps China's most international company the can accompany likes project and promote because it shows all the best of Chinese learning, and and technology a genuine international company, but yet over the last. Eight year all more a number of different countries around the world of being fearful of allowing way to use technology to develop telecom infrastructure in their countries. I was in the Carribean a few years back. I was very struck on the island of Dominika by the presence of Chinese workers. Chinese laborers, a big sports stadium that had been built by the Chinese government is a gift the people of Dominique how does China defend that kind of relationship, which even some on the island worry about how it's going and others might say is not so very different from the sort of colonial activity that was seen by European countries. Like, the UK what essentially and a half ago, there is certainly a case to be made that China's only doing what other countries primarily western countries have done before China's argument is essentially this making everybody we h he's not only going to benefit China. The Chinese would say it's going to benefit everyone else as well. And so. This kind of development. You talk about issues China's gift to the world to help them. Enjoy the economic benefits act. China itself is enjoyed what are the risks of conflict over this approach. A first economic lists. Which already a number of countries, identifying example, you've seen in Malaysia Sri Lanka other countries as well where the burden of debt imposed on those countries by China because of the money, it's loan them each too much. And then the failure is that at once you get to a country, then you have to sing to whatever Choon that it plays on a wider scale as well. It's the idea that China is completely different in its outlook to the western world where we value an individual rights the rule of law tolerance, not always perfectly smooth sable. That's the aim at. But in China, it's a one party state is the Chinese communist party, they given anything. They can do whatever they liked. So the thing is, of course, that this is a country we've at completely opposite ideals to the western world. So what do they want where were they going? What do they do if they don't get what they want Michael Bristow Chinese diplomat's among the first I hasten to Brasilia when Bolsonaro won Brazil's presidential election. He took office on New Year's day declaring this week that is election proves people want hierarchies order and progress a phrase, which wouldn't sound out of place coming from the lips of a Chinese official president Bonar ru is a figure of the right.

And both a well aware that it's on challenged violence that threatens the state on Friday, President Bosnia REU urged congress to pass legislation to protect the police from being prosecuted when they're on duty without that guarantee. He said there could be no guarantee of a rapid falling crime Leonardo Russia, the BBC's Latin America editor I into early in his political career when I was working in congress in Brazil. He was a newcomer. He was a new politician one of the few military men who had adventured into into politics after the end of the military government. And at the time, he came out to someone who was very very simple, not very eloquence, and the he had one he was just striking on one chord. He was saying he was there to defend the rights of the military, but not the rights, as you know, is a grander thing. He was there to defend the salaries the schools. Some privileges that many people had mainly lower ranking sub officials in the armed forces. That's quite a contrast in terms of his background to to Obrador in Mexico who who is kind of more steeped in politics, but also for quite a long time back Lopez over Dory is a different person. He is a much more ideological person. You can call both Mavericks is a term you can use to describe them. They both driven by their own agendas.

"Is the J M V. Angela Ye shall Amina guy. We are the breakfast club. Now, it's time for ask. Hello. Who's this? This is Margie from Miami Margie. What's your question for you question for you? I'm just trying to like better or get better into the dating scene. And I just wanna know how do I do that? Okay. Well, so how are you dating? Now. Not at all. I just very infrequently very very infrequently. And how are you meeting people at you online? Are you on these dating services? Are you a match? I'm I'm not really on match. But like I used to go out a lot. But for some reason out here in Miami. You just meet the worst people have you thought about trying online dating I've thought about it. But I would you know, I think young I go out, and I actually just beat someone in person. Yeah. It sounds good. But it seems like that's not really happening for you. So I wouldn't rule that out as an option. Also at think, it usually when you go out with groups of people, it's hard to meet somebody 'cause you already in a group, which is intimidating for guys who approach you when you have a lot of people around you. So I think for you. I would also try to go places sometimes by myself, like if I'm going to a restaurant or go sit at a lounge and bring something with me to do because it's easier to meet people when you're by yourself and your forced to make conversation. So things like that help also get involved in some activities that you're interested in if it's taken a class or balance hearing because things that you're interested in you'll meet people that are also on that same wavelength as you. So sometimes it needs just putting yourself out there more and that going to the same places all the time. A lot of times we have regularly places that we go to our own tears where we see the same people. And sometimes you have to get yourself out of your own comfort zone. I really thought he was living in Miami. I tried to like go out of town and other countries and other states because I just feel like the men on here. Terrible. Well, also that attitude is not gonna help you bring anybody to you. You're right. You gotta stop having that negative energy. And don't always look at people ask somebody, you might potentially date. Just look at that cannot meet somebody interesting, they might be just a cool person. Because sometimes you put a lot of pressure on yourself saying could this be the one could this be the one when it really is things start off as a friendship and not actually putting that out there. Like men are terrible the men out here awful. Of course. If you go out there saying that that's what you're going to attract. And that's what it's going to feel like, and that's the attitude. You're going to have been getting the fact that I'm intimidating for men because they're like, you know, there's nothing it doesn't seem like there's anything wrong with you. So is it a bad thing to be too good? I think that a I don't know what that means when they said that there's nothing wrong with you. But I've never heard that. Because no one's ever said that to me. So I can't. I can't cosign that. But I do think that your attitude has to be different, and you have to be more open. So wanting to accept people into a world, I think a lot of times it's energy and people are feeding off the energy of you feeling that these men are just no good and nothing out here. You gotta go out with that attitude of I'm to get out there in the world today and enjoy myself, so great interesting people and start conversations and be nice and friendly. And if nothing happens that day, something will happen. But you just gotta welcome it into your life. Okay. Thank you. I write Margie. All right as key eight hundred five eight five one zero five hundred if you got a question for Ye calling now with the breakfast club..
