Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states.

The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon.

Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history.

She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters

In Biden’s White House, surprise visits with staff replace late-night tweets
"Us now is anita kumar. White house correspondent and associate editor at politico. Thanks for joining us. Anita thanks for having me. I always like these stories. A little peek into the white house the governing styles behind the scenes president. Joe biden has been in there a couple of weeks now and we're seeing how he's operating in there. We're hearing that. He likes to stroll around the white house in the east wing. He pops into other people's offices he's a very much an extrovert. A people person wants to talk to people face to face the pandemic kind of puts a little crunch on some of that sometimes. But tell us how it's going so far in a kind of in contrast to the way president trump operated in there. Yeah well you're exactly right about that. I mean he has been known his whole life. I think for being an extrovert very outgoing and wants to see people talk to people in and as you mentioned that really hard during corona virus. So he's not getting out of the white house very often. He's not traveling. The country like we might expect during non cova time so what we are. Seeing is him strolling around the white house popping into different offices just to say hello and checking with staff or for particular occasion or particular meeting. We are seeing him doing a good number of some of the meetings he would be doing anyway with outside experts but he those by video instead of you know by phone so he can see those people even if he can't be in the same room with them so we're seeing a lot of that you know you asked about donald trump. I think donald trump also like to talk to people and see people and be seen and so there's a little bit of a similarity beyond that. Their style is completely different about how they get information and talk to people and try to make those decisions. I mean obviously. Joe biden a politician for many many years. He's definitely more of that. Traditional style president trump a businessman. So he kind of has that fast moving pace but even the way their time is structured and access to them is different. Joe biden has a very strict schedule of phone calls that that are scheduled for him. You know people that control access to the oval office and it was a little different for president trump. There was a lot more people that he welcomed in and out of the office. He'll wideness taking much more traditional way to govern but this is sort of how he's done things so you know he will have a set list of calls to make that his staff will set up for him. He will have scheduled meetings. We know that he's doing a national intelligence briefing every day. He's also getting corona virus update every single day those. Are you know from staffers. But how he makes the decision is he'll get You know sort of briefing paper. He likes to read something but he doesn't want it to be hugely long. President obama like to read a lot. He he he'll be all there and he wanted to read sometimes after he read. He didn't wanna talk about it. 'cause he'd already read it he he knew what it said president biden. He likes to read it. You want something concise. And then he wants to talk about it. He wants to talk about it with his aides. And then he wants to talk to these outside experts which could be someone that deals with the policy but it could also be a local official or a state official. So he's having those kinds of calls and meeting with his aides and making decisions that way you know. President trump really didn't like to have those briefing papers. He didn't want to read something. He would sort of famously have his aides debate an issue right in front of him. He wanted them to kind of go out a little bit so the style is very different but something that joe biden has brought from you know he's decades in public life. Before
Interview With Ciaran McCrickard
"Today i am really thrilled. I am very happy to be talking with karen. Cricket karen is a as his website describes them a freelance photographer over in worthing in the uk specializing in architecture portrait and editorial work but to say that really does not do justice to his career at all. His work has been on the front page of every national newspaper in the uk. He has a portfolio of celebrities and public figures. That i think is the envy of anybody working in that field and most interesting for conversation. Today he has a brand new projects underway which is bright and colorful. And i'm not about to give away any more of it. Because i want. I want to hear it described from the author's own voice karen today how are you today. I'm good thank you scott. Thank you for coding tonky. Let me on the podcast. I really appreciate it. Well this is going to be a real pleasure. I have to ask because the news as recording this the uk is getting the first doses of the covid vaccine house. The mood over there. Is everybody pretty excited for this. A little skeptical. Yeah a real mixed bag. I think people are excited. But i think we're slightly skeptical simply because of the way. I think our government is handle it so far hasn't been will beating a world class so i think at the moment i think the government and riding on this vaccine in the final with us country have it. The people are the kind of nevada. They don't necessarily know where they're gonna abbott Trusted really. I think we're just gonna see how it goes is obviously the first day so we'll just say well. I hope it all works out better than anybody's expectations because photography as well as every other profession on the planet has been really affected by the lockdowns which brings me to to. Let's just jump in the deep end here. You have a project that is really interesting and really impressive called parks and no recreation thrown and before we get into it. We should tell everybody that your website. And i hope they go to. This sort of follow along is mcgregor. Photography dot co dot uk mcgregor m. c. c. r. I c. k. a. r. d. photography all one word dot co dot uk. And they can get to this project from the about page at the bottom. You've got linked to the latest editorial from the guardian. Which is this but there's also a separate site. I'm a cricket. Photography dot e set dot com slash parks to no recreation. So give it a shot folks. You're gonna find can't tell us what what is parks to no recreation will. It was born simply out of the pandemic under lockdown. Obviously the whole pandemic star raises heading january february. And then i know it's things starting to really slowdown in february with jobs dropping off. 'cause i do work in london and i do abroad. The that stuff abroad really dropped off after march but the stuff in london to fade away a bit and then obviously march the twenty fourth think it was came along and everything just disappeared and i think a lot of us were staring into an abyss. Really we didn't really know what was happening or what would happen in in the future. So once march twenty four th came in on are starting to think. I need to look for different things to do. I need to look about finding another way of bringing money subject to kids and wife allow allowable will kind of thing so i went out and i started. June speculative stuff. Mt beaches empty days. Mtpa the nice to after a couple of weeks to try and pushing these. These specs pitches to the newspapers. I wasn't getting anywhere. And i realized is because there was so many other photographers out. Who in the same boat because the country had shutdowns. There was no concerts. Politicians went moving. The royalty weren't moving around those no sports games to all those talk. I used to do that stuff. Had nothing to do so everyone was out doing the same thing so a couple of weeks. Anita do some different so driving around with my girls just exercise trying to get you know do anything. We could really to get out a house every day and exert. She won't matthias. Projects i started was single unwonted potomac and it was actually photographing oldest stuff. That people would clearing out of their houses and carriages loss because people were home all the time now they can coach their offices were board said they clean out the houses on the street for people to take and this ranged from absolute junk to stuff that you think well i can actually have the semi on home kind of thing so i start around photographing just driving around all this stuff that people would leave and that was great after a while i noticed that people only have a finite amount stuff and they were taking it and it was all around anymore. This is after a couple of weeks. It was all going on. I roy okay. Let's think about doing more empty stuff places. The arm inhabited anymore about football pitches. Tennis cool things like that. But they're all the same from above or any point the rule of saying some slightly different colors. So i think i think i did. I went to a crazy gulf. Cut range thing that name kills co two and it was usually close down. So i'm gonna see what it looks like from above so i got the trona look. Good it look nice. There was competition that was colors but it was. It was really really busy too. It was a crazy sensitive like dinosaurs volcanoes all this stuff kicking off in mobile. They look good. But i'm going to try something else. So i went round to my local park zone. Ikuta wall traffic control and got up and shot from higher up. So you can see everything and then i realized actually close. You got to the ground low. You went the more abstract it became. The battery looked
Virtual 2021 Sundance Film Festival opens on a screen very near you
"City, Utah. And because of the pandemic, thousands of film lovers will go to premieres, panels and parties, mostly online. NPR's Mandali Del Barco has this preview. This year's Sundance opens with the premier of the documentary, Summer of Soul or when the Revolution could not be televised. Director Amir Thompson, known as the Musician. Quest, Love presents footage of the 1969 Harlem cultural Festival that has never been seen since. Pressure's lower. Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy. We're excited. I think this feels like a grand experiment, so people who are they couldn't afford it or couldn't make the journey. Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women. Many were shot or finished during the pandemic lockdown. There's even one titled In the same breath about how covert 19 began in Wuhan, China. Many of the doctors said these hospitals must have known this new virus was spreading between people, but they were afraid to say so for fear of punishment from the government. Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno. Life can be pressing America what was different about Anita and with side stories that she was a girl who respected herself. Who had a certain amount of dignity. Actually, she became my role model. The festival will also include online panels, meetups concerts and parties, many of them free. There will be virtual spaces for black and Latin. Next creators, and Jackson says festival goers can participate in the new frontier program using Webcams or virtual reality headsets from home, you Congar! Oh, in as an avatar, you can wonder around this incredible space garden. Go to parties, which are where people are going to gather to talk about films. We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work. The reason I'm so excited about it is because it really is an unusual space in which we can still come together and socialize, and it doesn't feel anything like Zoom. Sundance is also partner with art House cinemas around the country to present some in person events, including at drive in theaters. Manda Little Barco. NPR news.
Predictions of Email Marketing 2021
"What do we think is really going to be important in the coming year because even a marketing does change the priorities. The world's changes of course. What do you. What do you mean what's one of your big things that you're thinking. Twenty twenty one. The focus on what i think sending emails is probably going to be a really big thing. If we start sending emails rather than just thinking about us going to hell. No so i think one of the really big things that we talk about all of the time is engagement is is working on engagement of your email lists we all collectively trying to get away from this idea of emailing bombarding emails until they buy unsubscribe. Just build a massive mess and beat them over the head with emails. So that you. If you've got this one hundred thousand people three percent of them open your email. She might go. What still quite a lot of people. That's three thousand people might not everyday but actions. You know what that's really expense. It's hard to manage. It's not doing your marketing and good to instead. We need to focus on actually having really small list. The actively works in fact. I'm going to go as far as to say this. I recently had an email marketing platform. That was painful with rooms twenty thousand subscribers and one of my businesses and i was paying and the reason being it was like a negative price so i signed a ten years ago and so i had the place in ten years ago. Not the place today. And as a result of that. I was like clinging onto it can also be used that one day actually recently i just got rid of it and i said you know i'm not interested. I mean a different platform. Because i don't want to have a list of twenty thousand people necessarily anymore because you can do a lot more damage with a lot smaller list and be more profitable if you're willing to manage the engagement of those people into the woods. If you're willing to chop off the whole roster people who are not paying attention anymore and that's probably not gonna buy anything anymore. You can make the same amount of money. It's much smaller segment of your list. Actually if you ignore the vanity metrics of how big your walter of a-listers and instead focus on how much money you actually take thus a much better place to be right and we're talking about law you pay the bills. You can't grow a business you concrete freedom or achieve any of your goals with a big old list of of email subscribers i. It doesn't matter how big a list you wielding it. It really doesn't matter it's all. About what value are you getting from that list as a business right. Or if you're if you're if you're a non nonprofit for example who have a couple of of those guys listening. It's about the the number of people who who's having an impact on and if you're not getting any engagement not having an impact on them. Let's be honest right if people are not engaging and what would mean here is people are not actually opening in reading clicking replying to forwarding. Actually get involved in your emails just seeing your name and delete in a worse. It's not even open it. Don't even bother deleting it and your inbox engaging not literally serves. Nobody in terms of them themselves the person who subscribed they are in volley from your emails. Because they're not reading them. Say knock involved from you. Secondly you're not able to get any value from because you're not only meals that you can't make sales office to them and third and this is the most terrifying bought of at all is all of the people who do receive in from you that ability to receive from you is negatively impacted by the people who are not opening your emails you damaging reputation with the email platforms so some of the people who do want to receive m e mails from you. Who do see value in you who you can get volley from on seeing emails. So no one's even so. I think we need to have a massive focus on engagement. Now will comes down to making sure that every single email you send you ask directly for some kind of engagement. Whether it's click a link reply this thing go check this out forwarded whatever. It's going to be just to make sure that you're getting engage with the museum. So this is definitely as the as the spam world tightens up even further because everything on the internet. Don't you know so renita. Remember that all these algorithms gonna get smarter. So engagement is going to be massive for me. I think the next thing is going to be about giving people a reason to actually open your emails. What i mean by that is if all you email and look people are guilty of this. I know we can look back at my my older my previous self and see that. I used to only email people when i had a new offer. Hey here's a new. Or i was leading up to an offer giving some value in advance of framing the offer. Lots of people only email. Hey here's the next thing. I've got the next part service. The next thing the problem with that is if i receive an email if you receive an email right now from somebody and you know the only thing they email you about is other products the only reason to ever open the email is to see what they've got on sale right now or to see if if a discount on the thing you'd be careful but if you're not in zone now if you're not in a place while you're looking to buy something from the category of stuff that person sells then you've got no reason to all to open that person's emails whereas to actually give people a reason to open their emails which is not there might be a discount code or they might be a thing they want to buy. If it's actually there is value in the email themselves that they can they can enjoy that volume in get value fraum. Then there's a reason to open that email regardless of whether anita have my credit card honda not right absolutely. I think i really wanted to allow businesses idea that at the minute we think of emails is being a bit like a lot of people know a lot of people think of email is being a bit like knowing somebody comes around the doors and puts a catalog three blocks. You only look up by. If you're interested in the idea of all the i might wanna buy some new took boxes or something like a new dust or i might wanna see what gadget economic my kitchen and never used for the rest of us like the rest of the time just threw away. Just don't use it. don't even look at it emails. Become thing the to even even the big supermarkets have realized this is the case in the uk. If you go to marks and spencers right at overhaul of christmas look christmas right. They had all of that stuff inside on the lead up to christmas of. Here's the beautiful turkey you can get. And he has all this stuff but what they switched on the fact that people won't read them if there's no value enough it's a free magazine is a free calog. So what do they do. They put in beautiful turkey recipes. That had -ality the do at tesco that do it everywhere. They give you great recipes. Here's some great christmas soups and all this stuff. So there's a reason pick catalog up. Because the reason we still got two or three of them lying around in the kitchen even now because we know that some great recipes nuts and nothing so that's value in the off they are catalogs which are selling products directly. So we've gone gauge. When we think value is the second one interesting in that example you just gave just about that. O obviously the articles and the stuff that you're getting recipes is stuff that you can do with the stock you're gonna go and buy from that shop so like it's not like defeating the purpose it's not like here's the perfect ten list to go camping next week when you doing anything related accompanying it's mitchely a lotta stuff that is valuable in its own right. But it's congress when he makes sense that you're gonna be able to get results from the study you can then go and blocks from that shop and by the way kennedy. I have to say about jerry makes a lot more sense now. Marks and spencer.
How to Build a Hiring Process Based On Skill, Not Pedigree
"Welcome everyone to another episode of. It visionaries today. We have the founder and ceo of hacker rank the wreck. Roberson car the vet. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me all right. Let's dive into what is hack heck is ing product that followed developers to showcase their skills and get jobs based on skills so it's great product developers. That's what we do. So hacker rank described it a little bit more. So if i'm a developer and i want to showcase my ability to program full stack front end back end. It doesn't matter. Whatever it is my specialty is. How does hacker ring helped me showcase my skill. Sure let's you know maybe hiring process of their do personas involved. One incident for the company cited the other one is a candidate but the developer side difficulty in what he has to happen before. Was you look at candidates z. Me and then go ahead and say okay. This person's the school gpa. Invent by used that as way adopting of us are you said as a pretty signal. The interview process the way hang works. Is we build a product that as a company you could go ahead and create your own customized challenges whether that is the front daniel stank a devops and developers one apply to your organization instead of going ahead and applauding the resume in the typical resume. Steam gain salgado's janitors and if they were pretty well then they can continue with the process the also build a bunch of products getting the enemy processes while To make the whole hiring process based on skills over pedigree all right.

I had serious health problems which included being bipolar had kids at had ear infections tonsillitis runny noses that was high blood pressure so we had these kind of. I call him normal health problems because it wasn't like the big three cancer heart disease diabetes.

And the closest i've got to google was on several occasions sneaking into the fits medical library in johannesburg and he are trying to find says there and looking at books in the archives and just like nobody really had answers to my questions had to find the myself now. I really believed because i could see the. You'll buddy actually repays itself if you cut your finger to paint it stop. You don't need to go and you know cost a spillover it or go to the doctor. My fingers cut itself. Please can drug. I mean unless you chopped to finger off you'd want to beg on but just a cut finger. Paper cut irritate you. It hurts but you it just eventually repays itself and and if you study the human body like a did you find out that the liver you can actually cut off your liver out. Remove it entirely donated to somebody else. Give the small lobe to somebody else in the big global grow and then you've donated your smaller that logo groesbeck like this is the most amazing thing and yet when it comes to lever cancer you told is no cure for it. You're going to die while you would because you're going to be given all these drugs and you live a second will just get sick and pick up than you will die so i was looking for ways to correct the looking for the causes and then ask trying to fix the causes. I did find that. Nutrition made a huge difference. When i changed my diet. Took after find sugar and my by pella symptoms when my crazy periods of manic unbelievable highs. We are could take on the world. And i was going to change the world and i'm actually by nature very idealistic person and my mission in life is i want to change the world. One person at a time. I want to get them healthy enough. Got the goal to reach. A million people wrote a book called the natural way it came out in nineteen. Ninety-one was a runaway bestseller according to the publishers and it sold as i say of three hundred thousand copies it's been published in the united states. The funny thing is it seems to be taking of now first published in the states in two thousand five fifteen years not getting traction. So it's like if it does take off and i happened to reach the new york times. Basically nobody can ever say was an overnight success at this pathetic years. So you're a woman before your time. Someone emission to really help people if i can get rid of my bipolar symptoms and be completely sane And and thinks straight and have a brain in and and bow bowels and bladder that works properly all the time and be living in that sweet spot of health than anybody can do it. Because i had terrible problems. Janet listening to all calls from weld without wine. Marianne take me about you just mentioned alcoholic parents. It that intrigued me wondering if that was one of the reasons why you want it to research to health unle- to healthier lifestyle was that of a trigger. I think it. I think it was. I think you know even mentioned to some one time that i want to try to get drunk when us fourteen and jank moms cara pheno one and didn't like the way i felt i felt out of control and i think that sense of not being in control of my immediate environment and i wouldn't say i'm a control freak but i needed to be common working properly and audley at the sense of order i think that comes from growing up in the chaos of alcoholic appearance at home and my mom was a party animal. She was functional alcoholics. She could party all night and go to work the next day in absolutely fine my father however party will not and he wouldn't work for six months and that was you know he'd worked for six months and then not work for six months to a year or two years so we grew up with that sort of chaotic and then my parents got divorced because my mother said she had four kids anita fifth one. My father married. Somebody was crazy as he was. You know do things like pour petrol over my stepmother and threatened sitter a lot this crazy stuff that chaos does makes you want to live an ordinary that the thing. That really got to me when i was a kid. My mom had this medical encyclopedia. And i would pour over at the age of four hundred. All these gory. Pictures of people as innocent large thyroid landed was like the size of pumpkin and the knicks and these open ruins and at sit there and cringes kind of not. Wanna look at them. But it's fasten. The human body fascinated me from a very early age. My mom was kind of forward thinking as much as she was a party animal. She told us we couldn't chew gum or drink. Physical because our brains would fry and and we went lottery comic books either. So i had the sense of trying to do the right thing I think it also grows up with you know you grow up with a parent. That's a bit narcissistic. i think. Alcoholism in a sense is a narcissistic habit. Because you just carrying about a million myself. And i'm trying to numb my pain. You know not thinking about the responsibilities of life you know growing up with it. I had the saints. That i wanted to please my mom and do the right thing so i was considered the goody. Two shoes in the family just always trying to do the right thing in an nfl had to take it back to pregnancy was a need to just have off in my life Feel like yeah. Things went as chaotic. As they've seen. We moved a lot as kids. You know doing a geographic alcoholic. Parents do that things. Don't work you just move somewhere else. Yeah i've i've come across two different reactions when people have Parents they are do what she did. And react against the kale. Some won't control an order in their life all they they tend to say well. You know sin family. I'm bound to be that as well and then kinda give up unsolved drinking as well so Is that been your experience as well. Do you think people tend to go. A different one of two was party. Animal ended in two brothers. That partied hard. I mean they crashed a few calls when they were aided. And that god they've grown up and grown out of it and They've so but very working my two brothers especially very sober and very hard working And and i just think. I think what you you learn the learned behavior sydney. I look at myself is it. I may not have been addicted to alcohol. But as very addicted to sugar so ahead addictive side to me that anita to the sugar made me feel good in that space. So i suppose in a sense. I was doing much what people do with alcohol when us feeling unhappy or was feeling sad or on feeling like a done something. Well i would reward myself or console myself with suga whether it was fragile candy or cake. So is scream. It didn't really matter how much as i said. Even propane sugar staying out of the sugar bowl. As i got older. I became health conscious. South for made fudgy using brown sugar. That was really good. But you're that that that needs that sense of of you don't you you know parents at properly as if you growing up in an alcoholic home so you learn. The navy is that that it's a k. To satisfy yourself for full let need with a something in a with some people it could be gambling. All pornography will with made was shook end and food as a compulsive overeater. And the only reason we're glad clinically obese of always been physically active and and if i was not eating properly and exercising. I wouldn't ever sleep. I would. And i think that looking at having dealt with so many people in our family and with people have met of the years that alcohol sometimes puts people to sleep just eventually knocks you out so eventually do sleep when you're very active brain not taught how to look off draw brain. How what does alcohol do to bring. What is caffeine due to the brain so one minute drinking coffee over here and then that's like over stimulating central noticing. Make all your nerve cells five. Ab rapidly and then you'd having alcohol too. Because that's a natural depressant than you take the to calm you down and put you to sleep and then you wake up the next morning and you hung oversee start with the coffee again in the brain goes into overdrive. Then you would lots of sugar into the coffee. So you just getting on this treadmill and i think i think if we were taught the staff about how everybody body reacted to sit and things from when we were kids. Part of the reason assorted school is that we would understand how our body worked and figure stuff out pretty soon and make good choices. But that's me probably being idealistic as well if you were talking to someone. That was drinking super too much. They weren't really aware of what it was doing to that office. That brains. what what would you tell them. How would you summarize the home that it does to us. Gee i'm the first thing we know. Is it really damages the central nervous system in the brain. And we've now these quite a lot of research showing that parkinson's disease which michael j. fox got a really young age and he has a. He was a big drinker. Huge drinker everything. I've read on him. The alcohol played a big role in. He's laughing was younger. That can damage your central nervous system. and it doesn't do it alone. Units alcohol and sugar and bed diets and bed living but alcohol plays a huge role in that. It really affects a whole lot of things affect your central nervous system in your brain so you don't handle stress well and lacewell you handle stress. The more you're going to drink because it numbs you. Eugenic feel you can just numb yourself. you stop feeling in dozen courage assistant behavior because it becomes all about my feelings and my stress and my money to numb in. I mean we all know this. We would go without food in a hassle appearance drink and i've seen it in other families. The mother a single mumble drink because she's lonely or because she feels a failure whatever. Her reasons are and there'll be no food in the fridge. Another normal alcoholic friggin. Look on his nets moke in there in a piece of cheese. And that's about it if you lackey Most just don't have food in them. And i know as kids if they was cheese enough ridge. We would flatness in like half an hour because he's a no win. The food was going come which didn't help but encourage things like a compulsive over eating so a central nervous system and that's the one side the other side that in a fix and impacts really badly as the indicating system and that's a system that controls every single part of the buddy janice it controls your liver your lungs your kidneys digestive tract your muscle tone. You sleep your menstrual cycles. Your facility these nothing. It's not in your breathing. Your lung function your hair. Growth your nails. You'll skin it it. It affects every single part. The endocrine system produces hormones in different parts of the body in those hormones may chemical reactions take place which makes the body function properly. Have alcohol's interfering with it function because what it does is it actually pushes your blood sugar up really really high so you feel like good on alcohol woo and then your blood sugar over produces your body produces over produces insulin. 'cause you're about to go into a diabetic coma and in your body's designed to repeat itself over produces the insulin brings it all the way back down and as it starts to slide mcdonagh feeling really tired immaculate and sleep and pass out if it gets really bad And then you you. You might have something like coffee or tea or another drink to try and raise your blood sugar again so when you blood. Sugar fluctuates fitting brain and central nervous. System your endocrine system and your immune system and you can understand the not explaining this very well with the whole covid. Nineteen they send. People are drinking and having caught accidents but alcohol suppresses immune function. That's what it does. So the government instead of educating everybody in showing us adverts over and over which i think would help better than just locking everybody down and telling you you know these content touch alcohol reagan so ridiculous. You can't buy alcohol during the on the weekend so everybody's just by way more so every restaurant selling wine under the counter to the clients you know because they can't make money selling food during lockdown. It was bizarre to see the activities that going on at the end of the day understood. Exactly what it does. And how it suppresses immune function we must take these things a little bit more seriously than being wrecked on the knuckles suck educate people that teach them the stuff so i think other thing that it does and this is fascinating. Refined sugar does exactly the same thing is alcohol does just desert loose something called reactive hopper blah seamier. Which when the blood sugar shoots up to high we over produce insulin and brings it right down so down so far down your blood sugar that the part of the brain your frontal lobe that controls moral behavior planning and forethought will just shuts down completely. Okay and the part of the brain that takes over as part of the brain that controls aggression appetite and sexual function. And i think this is probably really important to help people understand these blackouts that they have so you can have a blackout but you not passed out you just living life. I mean. I know a girl that poured wax all over yourself. Hot wax in that state couldn't remember how she got burned from this x. She took all our clothes often. Did this is absurdity. Because the people that were they told her what she does. She could not believe she did something like that. I had a woman that came and spoke to me. Because i was when i speak often speak about the stuff because it played such a role in my life and how important it is to make. Sure you're getting the right kind of glucose about in a while. And she came up to me after she said. I'm embarrassed to raise my hand and tell you what i do but cannot speak to you privately. Acid short can understand when she told me the story. She said i'm going to tell you. I'm very very committed. Christian person go to church regularly. my husband's actually involved in the leadership of the church. We go to bible study on wednesday nights. We go to between one and three services and the sunday we we're involved in the charitable work and stuff but she says periodically. I wake up in another town or another suburb in strange man's bid. And i have no recollection of how i got the and i say to you consume and she said. Nah don't i said are you a sugar addict. And she said yes osama title sugar addict and it does the brain. What alcohol does we. You just black out completely. Obviously you've got to be extreme amounts of sugar to do this but alcohol does the same thing you drink. Extreme amounts you'd binge drink and the knicks thing you wake up and you in somebody else's bid and like how the hell did you get in the shame of all of this is worse than you start drinking again and this whole thing goes on so what happens is when the primitive brain takes over. You either going to get aggressive. You're going to just eat and eat and eat canoe appetites. Just nothing's gonna be enough or you. Could your sexual function could take over. And you become extremely promiscuous and that's clearly very dangerous because besides possibility of fathering all mothering a child you could end up with terrible sexual diseases. So it's it's a huge problem and people don't know this until somebody like me comes and tells him and nobody studies this. Because you take the average psychologist or psychiatrist. Dr they studying medicine and how to cheat you when you sick with medicine and surgery than looking. And what is the cause of all these problems and vivian often. It's a physiological or physical course an and utrition is something that's kind of just ignored and net. That study was done with reactive. Hoppy glycemic was done by women. Called baba read stood. She lived in the united states and operated in stable municipal area and she was in charge of the juvenile delinquent and criminal juvenile delinquent and the prisoners. The adult prisoners in the end the juvenile delinquents and she found that of them something like ninety three percent of the people that she'd work with suffered from this reactive hypoglycemia and in that state of blacked out. Where you can't remember what went on people will kill the family. They'll the children we ask you. Yeah then they will beat somebody into coma they'll be do the most. They'll they'll commit a crime. And they have no recollection of course when you committing crimes being something people like as easy to say you lost your mind and you can't remember but it's an actual condition where you had no recollection of went on. It's completely blacked out. You listening to reply to alcohol. The podcast from world without one if eat lights join our tribe. Please check out website. That wine don't cold so yeah. Apparently those many people in child but have done that have a blackout killed somebody. You cannot in jail recollection too. Many people in jail i mean. Can you imagine Horrendous but blackouts very common in all community. We talk about the loss of people have blackouts. I used to have the have them as well Boston is like all it was a walking talking blackout because I was with some friends for afternoon. And apparently i seem quite normal. You know i was walking around talking. We'd walk quite a long way together. I have no recollection. I mean we'd been drinking since frightful Drink but i. It just hit me over the edge. I lost an entire. And you know i used to have blackouts where the end of the evening was a bit fuzzy Quite remember how it may be. But this one was really serious Hated the idea thought woking talking blackout the fat my brain was so alcoholic couldn't even make memories nazi Absolutely terrifying and here's the thing that people don't understand is that you'll cells and your buddy a designed to consume glucose. Nothing works in your in your at salable. You got thirty seven trillion cells in your body. They desperately need glucose they needed to make. Atp a denison triphosphate which is what creates energy your monaco andrea desperately. Need that your every little organ nelio in the plasma critical in these tiny little things inside the cell that you can't even see with your naked eye it needs glucose your brain and central system can't work without glucose and if you're not getting enough you going to crave alcohol or sugar and barbara read stood say we knew feed children refined sugar growing up on any level. She said you're actually preparing them for alcoholism because they get into the cycle. The blood sugar going up and it's coming down and they feel that the sugar satisfies and then you you graduate from a kid to adolescence or young young person in your twenties wait sitting stuffing faced with ice cream and chocolate says locked kind of interdict so will have a drink and it does. What sugar to to you. And now you recognize that. Except that the alcohol gives you even a bit of feeling takes you higher disrupts you lower so if we understood that we need need proper glucose for body's natural glucose and and so often when i've done a talk i actually say to the audience and i remember reading this one year at a secrets convention at sun city outside johannesburg. The were probably five hundred people Woman and i said to them. Okay if you do any of you crave sugar and they've just everybody put the hand and i said when you craving sugar. What is it that you put into your mouth. What is it you put. And what is it that you actually craving an attempt to get the point across. Imagine yourself in the garden of eden and you craving something sweet. What would you eat. And there was a stately silence and this woman blonde voluptuous woman sitting in the front rows in this deep voice. Adam evan rumor osc that christian. I'm thinking this woman. It was really funny at the time. But it's just interesting because i've often christian in los angeles of austin in the republic of hot bay of austin zimbabwe of austin the uk. Austin all over the

The Cairo Genizah with Marina Rustow
"The cairo. Anita is repository of such immense historical value. That sometimes it's easy to just assume the ways that it's important and i'm so excited to really dig in deep with marina on these important issues and think through all the different ways in which the denisa is an important historical record an important social phenomenon and an important lens through which we can understand medieval jewish has as well as the broader context in which jews as well as their neighbors lived. Thanks for listening in high marina. Welcome to the podcast here. Thank you so much for joining us. I really had such a blast reading your book and it's wonderful to be able to talk about it and to think about the really broadly. I want to think about your starting point from the book. The book is called the lost archive. And it's interesting that you are calling the cairo an archive in part because we have this great twentieth century can use a scholar. Some of gorton. Who talked about the guineas in very different terms in the introduction to his book the mediterranean society. He specifically calls the guineas a kind of an anti archive. I was wondering if you can talk a bit about the way in which you see the news as a kind of a lost archive. And what this means to you. When we think about the way that we approach vanessa and the kinds of questions that we can ask about it and what we can learn from it so i called the book the lost ark on that. Actually the claim that i'm making isn't that they can use it self archive but rather that. It contains traces of other archives. Go was right that they use is not an archive because an archive is arranged and maintained for the purposes. Not just storage. But also a retrieval so things have to be index. They have to be organized. They have to be ordered and they have to prunes for all. Those reasons are kaiser kind of different animal whereas they can isa people were just throwing stuff has early with absolutely no expectation that things would be accessible again in that sense. It was an anti our pod. But gordon says the guineas our guy because it was basically trashy what we would call a recycling bin or something like that but the inisia- is one place where we can find evidence to reconstruct the archiving practices of estate. That didn't it's preserve archive. The fontham calif it so in other words like it'd be so great if we could just walk into a building and i don't know cairo for instance and you know see the whole art of the fontham if it laid out there like i. You have a fiscal documents and then you have the administrative documents and are arranged according to date and place. This is how we kind of expect to work what you have in. The asia is a bunch of documents that may once have been thought archives but eventually were dumped and pruned from them because if things are are preserved for the purposes of retrieval then. Something's eventually have to be pruned. Otherwise you just end up with an infinite archives in kind of bored. Acn way and the other is documents that were never intended for the archive those two types of state document against each other. You can kind of triangulate what the loss ultimate archive looked like. So that's the lost ark. That i'm referring to in the title. Yeah it's this question of how we reconstruct the past in the absence of sources or in the absence of an official repository An official repository is both really good. Because it means that you have a lot of material that you can work with an official repository also means that there may be things that don't make it in there on purpose or the get removed and so i think that part of what you're doing here is using the news as a way to think through how we can approach history really different ways. That's right this is kind of in keeping with a move that some people in my field medieval middle east history have moved towards the last decade. Which is from static. Archives to archiving practices the study. we're cutting practices. And i think there's a much much broader movement towards this which is like you have a history of the book on the one. Hand the history of archives on the other which you know. Well that's your field that when you have a sense of how texts were produced and why they were producing the material forms in which they were produced in an survived again physically. How do they survive. You can actually use them as historical source material in a much more responsible way so i think part of what historians had come to do over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries is in a sense to get kind of lazy which is to say that we re defied archives as a kind of ready made repository store source material as opposed to understanding that the archives an accumulation of different processes obviously not all historians. Did this. but you know. I think my expectation was very much like you know. I would love to be able to walk into a building and start looking through files and then thinking retroactively about what here isn't here whereas going from the other end which is taking all the discarded material and trying to figure out what an archive would have looked like had it survived is a different story or with is in a different way. There's the archive as it was kept in the period in question and there the curatorial conventions and standards and assumptions criteria are interesting to think about it also often quite transparent and then there's the archive as it's kind of evolved over the centuries. Let's say like. I'm an eleven twelve century historian so as it evolved in a an eight hundred subsequent years. I mean if you think about about it all right. This is a place that has some of the oldest continuously operating libraries that we know of but of course the the archival material that they have in these libraries has been organized reorganized. You know dozens of times since the fourth century or or and that means that we have to start asking different questions and the afterlife archives. From how the archives were actually produced and arranged in the time period that were studying.
What's HIV got to do with a coronavirus vaccine?
"And norman. We had on friday that the vaccine which we talked a couple of times about on this podcast saying that it was a really promising candidate has been canned over the fact that people who received it could have a false positive to an hiv test or particular antibody associated with hiv. And we've had a lot of questions from the audience about this. So let's see if we can demystify. These are really felt like a bolt from the blue. We got kenton asking. Can you please explain how a why false positive hiv tests stopped. The queensland trial doesn't this reflect poorly on the hiv test rather than the vaccination. So that's a great question. Canton anita back up and just do a bit of an explanation. Here you listened to colonel cast regular you know that the vaccines and some of the treatments but the vaccines are targeted against the spike. On the surface of crohn's now the problem with the spike is that it changes shape. And you want it to be exactly the right shape for the lock and key mechanism and therefore it's going to be fixed. It changes shape of. It's not attached to the virus itself. Is that what you meant. That's right kind of swings in the breeze a bit now. How the are ours is the no one in the pfizer vaccines novartis's but vaccines do. This is that they've got a genetic variant of which programs a fixed version of the spike protein. So that's how they do it. How the university of queensland vaccine does it is that they've got something called a molecular clamp. So they kind of clamp into position so that it stays in the right shape for the immune system to recognize as a bona feed your at accurate version of the spike protein. So the immune response that you generate is exactly the immune response you want to be able to control the corona virus. Now you gotta be a clamp clampett. So what is what. What's the clamp. You can't do it for the client in the shade. You go to find some way of doing it. And the way the clamp they use in part is the is part of the human immunodeficiency virus. So it's an envelope protein. I think quite crudely although it's called nimble protein that's how they use it in his co. gp forty one and it clamps down the spike and holds in place so that you've got a stable spike for the immune system to respond to. So that's what they use. Hiv's being studied endlessly and they know exactly how these things work. It wasn't as if they didn't expect some antibodies to this part of the human immunodeficiency virus. I'm told that as part of the informed consent people told they might get a transient rise to to hiv antibodies. So that's what's happened here. Is that more people. Got an antibody response an immune response to this part of the human immunodeficiency virus. And that's what killed the vaccine. Not your had issues but we had the antibody response. Here's the problem when you actually do an hiv test you test. A couple of different parts of the virus that the check for the body response to hiv in different parts of different parts of the virus gp forty one is one of the parts. And there's a couple of others now you've got to get more than one of those to have an absolutely definite positive hiv test if all you come up with is gp forty-one then that's you know that's an equivocal test and they've got a taste you further so the problem is that the communist hiv tests include gp forty one in the suite of antibodies. They pick up when the testing for hiv. So the problem is donate blocks you come kneecap positive and they reject your sample or go to do other other ids tests to nil it. It's not as if it's impossible to get over. But it creates a lot of confusion and difficulty out there and and i suppose they just took a risk benefit equation. There was no harm to individuals. And i think you listen to the press conference. Teagan and some of these antibody rises. Were actually tempering. That that's right. So they said that. All of the vaccine as the older people that receive them. Had some level of positivity to hiv even though before the trials they really thought that it was theoretical risk in quite a lawyer one but they did say that even now at least one of the paypal has gone back to zero and the other seem to be declining so it could be a transient thing and they said that they did actually talk. They've had conversations with the government with health bodies about maybe whether the hiv tests should be changed to give people access to the coronavirus vaccine but they decided that i that would be really hard and be in addition to a public health issue around hiv. There's also a really important public perception issue around the vaccines and they wouldn't want people to be put off using the vaccine because of these perceived link with hiv even though there's absolutely no health risk associated with it at all because it's just a tiny little part of the virus that can't suddenly become the virus it's just literally apar- you're molecular part of the virus which is entirely independent says a huge shame and pamela asks. Why did they try using hiv. In the first place. I think the they at the press conference. That's right and one of the big reason is because hiv is just so well studied. And so this this clamp that was talking about before it was crystallized in hiv. I and so because even though. Hiv's are really scary bars or perhaps because it seems like scary virus. We know a lot about it. We started in a lot of detail and so with something. That's a really nine quantity being able to clip these thing out and put it into the vaccine. Seemed like a really sensible choice and because this was the first human trials of this vaccine. They didn't have an opportunity before now to know that this was going to be a risk the issue that we have only working human so they couldn't use them in the animal bottles and it wasn't really a high priority when the outcome that they're looking for is covid not really itchy. Europe was the last question from lou. Lou is asking the the stories seem to suggest that it was abandoned due to a concern about possible public perceptions rather than any real problem with the vaccine is this right is partly right of. Csl was party to that. They're the commercial partner and they've got a marketing issue to explain why this has the while you get a positive. Hiv test. even though it's false positive is enough of an issue reducing vaccine hesitancy. When you've rush through some of these vaccines and then you add hiv on top of it but there are practical issues. Liu and the pro the probably mostly relate to the blood supply you go into give a blood donation they will do a routine. Hiv test on it. And if it comes up positive and you either rejects the blood donation if let's say for example that fifty percent of the australian population got immunized against the with the vaccine and some of them didn't disappear quickly then. They've got to do further testing on the on the blood supply to make sure that it's just. It is truly a false positives. It creates a practical problem. They it also creates a problem for perhaps life insurance. So these things are solvable. I mean if this was the only vaccine available in the world they probably would continue with it but because it's not they've gone for just saying we're just gonna use the overseas vaccines which kind of brings us to some other news. That came out over the weekend so we heard that the yuki vaccine has been canceled. Which is a real blardone scientists but in addition to that glasgow smithkline vaccine has also been paused or cancelled canceled as been paused. So what they had was. They had a problem measuring the virus or the virus particles you know. Basically the corona vars to the vaccine in the in in their samples and they got that wrong and therefore the shoe or the wrong does in the in the samples and they had to had to go back to the drawing board workout test for the the elements of the corona virus in their vaccine and then reinstitute trials in a few months time. So they haven't candid is just the technical problem early on and often dosage does become a problem in vaccine trials. It's not unknown for vaccines to fall over at the dosage stage. And it's worth remembering here. The in the rush to get these vaccines the bit. That's been compressed. Is what's called the phase two trial. So what's happened here with the q. Vaccine it was the phase one trial which is a safety trial which find out this problem with hiv that it was more common than they thought. Normally then you would go to if it was okay in the phase one to phase two trial which is often largely about finding the right does the best fate whether it's a drug over vaccine and that's what's been compressed and they've tried to do phase one phase two trials together or face to face three trials together and the dosage that s- being not very well sorted i in some of the trials so for example. That's one of the problems with the astros trial in a small subs- subset of the trial. They gave half a does again partly because they weren't they weren't formulating in the way that we thought they wear and also a group that was largely under fifty five and they just didn't have time to sort of that element before they got to phase three and then they're probably going to have to double back and recheck all that well.
What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?
"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better
Unhook Your Wealth Blockers
"So we haven't been able to do a coffee talk for a while and i have been leading a ton of events in virtual events and And so i haven't been on this page that much and we posted things but it's not the same as being with you live. Can you agree with that. I love seeing you guys live and seeing your comments and seeing what's going on in your life and and what's on my heart. This morning is after speaking at all these events or something. That's become really alive for me in my life. Which is the the act of listening to what people are facing. I mean you know. We just had the elections. And then we've had krahn virus like infiltrating our life and And everybody's afraid to touch each other anymore and live live ca live events in thanksgivings. And you know hopefully not christmases but like all these things that were used to connecting with each other. Just have been just really sucked vacuumed out of our life and so one of the things that i think is really important is to listen to each other instead of fighting each other all the time which were so used to doing what the elections going on right now. We need to actually stop and listen to each other and remember that your business is built on serving people. And when i've been having my ear to the the computer my ear to the surveys. I've surveyed four times last week alone. Four times and what i kept hearing over and over and over again is that people are really fighting with their emotions there. They think they're fighting with people. They think they're fighting with with Belief systems but really at the end the day to fighting with their emotions. And what i mean by this is when we're dealing with frustration and overwhelmed and and you know if we're to be really honest with ourselves we say things like i need more support or i need to sales team or i need more leads. I need to figure out what my offer is. Anita figure out how to. How the better spouse and we actually put all of our power out there on these things that we can't control the truth. Is that what we're really fighting with is our emotions. I have a friend of mine. Who's a couple people that i know clients and friends that are separating themselves pandemic breakup right now and that just hurts my heart. Because i mean. Let's not put an identity on a break-up because it creates a collective herd like mentality. I don't know the stats when you know somebody who's gotten a divorce. There's like the the The statistics go google's but the statistics are extraordinarily high that your relationship is going to be impacted in a way that you actually contemplate divorce or actually move into that direction as well or break up and so it's fascinating to me how the herd like mentality moves around so let me show this thing about emotions as i've been serving the number one thing that i'm hearing is that shannon if i could just get over my emotions like frustration and overwhelmed and anger and the things that really caused me to procrastinate or to get angry at people i love or to basically push my power way and put blame or responsibility on somebody else to make me happy. It really like people actually identified that. It's their emotions. That is the problem more so than anything else. And so listen to that. And when i listened to that what i did was actually launched a whole like seventy challenge on helping people build revenue in their business and overcoming their emotions. And i gave them really hard homework pieces every single day to have to go do so that their emotions would flesh up so that they can see it. And i don't know if i if i changed any lives or not but i definitely tried. I definitely went out therein and did my best to To really show them how to put revenue back in their pocket. And i was just sharing with somebody like this year over here taxed untaxed on my phone just sharing with somebody this morning When i spoke at an event actually live event. Believe it or not that. I spoke out Just a few days ago. And i showed everybody how to create a million dollars fascinating to me. Go back to. The emotion thing fascinates me the only people who really wanted more details for the people who are already wealthy. People who are not wealthy had this conversation. I'm sure now. I'm assuming that it was over their head and i just it brings me back to like just opening up your eyes to know what's really going on in the world and it's like if they knew if they knew that they could actually execute on that on that three step plan to make a million dollars. Why would they not rush to find out more details and the reason why emotions in emotions have us believe that. We still need to get ready to take action. We still are not ready right for that next big thing. I see this semi pro. I have a one percent club with my private clients. And and this may be the last year that i do with our clients and and they literally they literally when people many of them when they come to me they say i said what's the ultimate plan and they tell me what the ultimate plan is and the ultimate plan is someday and that's emotions emotions have us make about some and i always say a. Why don't we just make this now. And then you'll see how committed you are to it and how much you really want it. Because i think we love to live in someday. Someday i'll have the marriage that looks like that. Be careful that someday. I'll have the business someday. I'll have the money someday. I'll be able to get up and workout someday and the truth is that somebody can happen right now but the but the truth is you might not really want that thing. You might not really want that thing. Because i'll take into relationships. If you really wanted your relationship to work what would have to shift in you right now. What would have to shift in you right now. To be able to create peace and harmony. I would have to shift in new okay. So there's there's a those away there's always a way right. There's always a way. I mean i wouldn't recommend staying with somebody who's abusive but like i've met people who used to be abusive and they're no longer
Atlanta Hawks reportedly agree to contract with Danilo Gallinari
"Well when you look at the hawks signing danilo gallinari who at some point people thought was going to be. The biggest name moved as a free agent for three years in sixty one point. Five million dollars twenty million dollars a year for a guy who's thirty plus now. It looks like a lot on paper. I guess because gallinari has been around for a long time. And you know. Technically past his brian. But he's a very very solid guy. And i likened it to paul millsap being signed by the nuggets a few years ago getting a vet while you have lots and lots and lots of capitalism and crippling yourself too long in the future. I think it'll be totally fine on their books trash. Thanks very good at that with the hawks. Oh three years twenty her effort danilo gallinari. Who is a maker and will make shots when trae young gives him the ball. I think it just fits on the court really really well. They needed a guy who he could. Just pass it to now. It's will you talk about. The wolves really really crowded backward. The hawks frontcourt is now crowded. Gone are is afford these days. He's not playing the three. John collins also four Anita they just draft five. They have clean cappella the five. That's a lot of bodies for sure. But i think just like the wolves. Everybody's on the table you know. They have contracts at every range. I think that's sort of why the wolves beasley to that number. They've got contracts that they can throw in as an asset as a dollar value. Whenever and so. The hawks are ready to deal. I don't think gallinari. Like paul millsap in denver is a part of the championship. Ross envisioned years down the road but when you got money and you got a guy who can make shots I think it just it makes sense again. Not crippling your your Your number in the future

I've been wanting to have for a long time particularly as we are now here in england in our next lockdown and many of you are thinking about a new direction in where you go in so who could be better than actually talking about online education than one of the best. I believe in the business. A huge fan of is our love style so delighted to welcome onto the show. The incredible chris. Moody chris welcome to how to cut it down. Thank you so much you such a pleasure to be here. I have to tell you real tingo just as as the show is stocking up there. It's it's such a privileged. This really is the gold standard of podcasting. It really is so excited to be on it. Thank you so inviting the suic- solano just before coming on and you know a saint. I'm i'm i have been a big fan of us for a long time and you know if there's anything we can learn from when it comes to be an educator is you really chris i know you deliver it to so many people i mean. How many people have you do you. Reckon youth now educated in hairdresser to become educated. I dunno most i dunno domino must tens of thousands in the last is really amplified in the last nine months since we went into our original lockdown in march all of our businesses pivoted since march. I think i've done about three hundred and fifty four hundred events. The biggest event is probably had about fifteen hundred people on so And most of the mavericks between fifty and one hundred people on a lot of those event so just in in this year alone in twenty it must be thousands but over the years maybe tens of thousands. I don't know i'm very privileged. I feel really blessed that people come and listen actually so it's really humbling. Think he's become such a big part now. There are so many people the want to become hairdressing educators. I suppose because there are so that you know that a lot of headdresses out there and ha handwriting education has become so accessible but also think you know in the uk all of the uk and island addressing has always been at a very very high standard. And i think people are recognizing in order to compete in to maintain that standard and to keep sort of pushing the barriers education has become more important than ever. It's not enough now to just simply learn your craft over three years or whatever and then you go into your behind the chair unpracticed. Craft things are changing all the time. Fashion technology styles of people are recognizing that they need to keep up with it. So i think as more and more an then it becomes cyclical as more people recognize. How much more there is to learn. The more people feel the need to learn it so it becomes absolutely anita you. You must hear it so often there where people say yet. I want to go into becoming an educator. And that's what. I wanna do ready today. Christie's learned from you the stuff that you take. Because i just to clear up the you have a few kind of different ports where platforms way you educate you. Chris just give us a quick heads up on those that you do provide in people that are interested in becoming educators. While i work a lot for a couple of different brands i work a lot for a global brand of which it has many different subsidiaries and do a lot of education for them Helping teach their trainers and helping to sort of evolve their education.

I'm working in partnership with other people off or offer major brands for global brands. Now i interviewed. James atkinson the life. Who's a very good friend of mine. He's pretty good friend of yours. To and i said to him. I said chris just there seems to be so many things that you've grown in. The industry has leader name. And i think. I'm curious to actually know who you are.

"Should be saving and investing and putting back into your business. We're always looking for people to volunteer and come out in support and speak to our young people and encourage them as well. This is not only adults, but also other young people because they connect at a different level when you speak to a young person and you're young yourself. I think there's this unspoken conversation that happens. Right. So we want to introduce that. But we also want to get the more seasoned veteran. Wisdom from our adults as well. So please share you know, we're on social media come out to our events and just being impassively for young people. Not for people to get involved say they wanted to know whether or not they qualify for any of your programs. Okay. If you are young person for us are we already talked about the requirements for the scholarship but for two excuse me for position for greatness youth program is literally fifth through ninth grade. Okay. If you feel that your child needs that extra support or you want to get them involved with other young. So there's no grade requirement. There's no income. Limit for presented for greatness you now. Okay. One and all one and all yes. From all of the areas that you mentioned, yes. Wherever we were at and so we're we're strategically hosting our events in those different areas. So that we can serve not everything will be done at one time, and we will also have the virtual sessions so any and everybody can participate in that as well. So once we start launching. Those to be uploaded to our YouTube channel. So you can find us on YouTube. You can find us on our website, which is WWW dot it takes to Inc. That org. Could find us on Facebook? At it takes two you could find us on Instagram at it takes to you can find me personally because I cross promote on all of those social media platforms as well. And just give us a call. Maybe sometimes that's just the best way to reach out to us, and that's four four three three zero two nine seven nine nine, and we're open to providing whatever support is needed if we can't fulfill it we have partners in place that can fill the need. Busy busy and join everyone of the I am I am there are days. Like, I said will you gotta take a step back in replenish, refresh. And do some things that you like to do. So you can keep it going. So what's your vision? Takes the vision to provide a full ride scholarship. Full rides to college all for years. That's a major major goal. Another vision is to have our own space, that's strictly dedicated to it takes too. So that we can have our young people come to us, then we'll still go out in the community and be mobile in that sense as well. But we want to create a home for our young people and parents as well because you can't get to the use without their parent, and we have to all be on the same page. So those are the two top visions for it takes too many children. Would you like to see involved in it takes to exit at any one time? Probably I was any one time. I was between fifty and a hundred and that may seem low, but we've never been about quality. We've been about sees me quantity been about quality. So even in our youth program. We max out at ten students because we need to give that one on one support. And it's kind of hard to do that when you have hundreds of students and not to knock anyone that does because I'm sure they have processes in place. But even when you have emptying in people to help yet. Absolutely. But as I was sitting here thinking fifty to one hundred is a lot. Yeah. Will you thinking about the individual type services that you offer because whether it's even if it the scholarship? Money per person adds up very quickly. It does. That's why donations are needed books for college. Not she. No, ma'am. So as you're going through that I was thinking to one hundred is is is a lot. How many do you have now youth for we have we have six right now. But like I said that maxes out at ten when we're talking on an annual basis, the number of students that we serve we are exceeding one hundred fifty because but we don't service the same child. Right. So they may come to this workshop, or they may come on this college show that we just had or they may come on the tour this coming up of the US naval academy, but we do touch over a hundred fifty lives on an annual basis and one of them some of them, we are helping in some sort of way, and that's our our ally. As a return on investment is knowing that we're making a difference in that, we're creating impact. Making an impact and making a difference. A big one in the community. What are some of the feedback that you get from parents of the kids that go through your your workshop, so your programs? I'll use our college tour we just on Monday. We went to tau sin, and we went to Morgan state. But prior to that we had a college readiness workshop so that we can prepare them for the tour what questions to ask. How do you finance it without being in debt? You know, those types of things in the feedback that we got was I'm so what she said that she's she appreciate the passion that we have at this age level because we start young in having this conversation in middle school because once you get to high school eleventh and twelfth grade sometimes it's a little bit too late, she appreciated the fact that the that we're focused on this age group, and we're not waiting until high school. The college tour is self gave her students her child. Skews me insight on what kind of campus she wants to be on. Whether it's a big one like towel sin or more smaller one like Morgan inches giving them opportunities to make decisions and to make those. Paris's in choices. So even just for that it opened up their mind to all the possibilities and in that college readiness workshop we talked about careers as well. One young man wanted to be a barberie and have business in all of this. And it's okay to have those different desires, you'd think about your millionaires and billionaires they don't have one stream, but being combed homing in there's multiple streams of income. So of you can do what you love doing you wake up every single day doing what you love, and you can get paid for it. That's ultimately what we want. So it is the conversation that our parents are appreciating in opening up their minds to all of the possibilities that there are there's a big old world out there. You gotta get beyond your immediate neighborhood to experience it, and that's what we try to do. So how do you touch upon each one of your six pillars through workshops, whether they're just like the college readiness workshop where we bring them together. Our virtual sessions are tours are. Trip. So a college tour in our chore. The neighbor kademi that's coming up as well. So it's a combination of workshop in house in classroom and getting out in the community. How do they handle the virtual workshops will this'll be I one coming good? I could answer that at a later date. Well, how delivered they haven't come down to your site? And they all watch it at one time or no, they're at home. Okay. This is going to be a zoom session. So we're using technology in order to deliver our services, and that's where they're at. Anyway, they're on their phones. So was nothing for them to loop. Tune into the zoom session. They don't have to be live. They don't have to be on the video their security issues in their little bit younger. But they'll be able to see us. They'll be able to see the presentation it'll be recorded. They can watch it later. They can't make it live, and eventually we can repackage and repurpose that so that we can upload that to YouTube, and I'm talking out loud things that I would like to see half. But that just allows us to open up. Our reach beyond even the DMV. It can be global. You know, once we get you to have access to billions, are you passionate about it takes too. I am asleep. Eat breathe nonprofit. You know, this is you know, when when you found a nonprofit you've birth a baby God has dropped that vision in your spirit. And he's asked you to go out and do it.

And we're back with Jamila kept talking about tools for success. The cornerstone program out of her it takes to nonprofit that covers five Onis, which is a large area here in the DMV. So we chose to not focus on one area 'cause they're single parents everywhere. Yes. But you're growing I mean, it's good because taking on one county year one you're not taking on too much that you can handle at one time. But to your growing willing to service the entire DC metro area. Yes in not just one county as opposed to another because they all have issues and problems. They all have people in need. Yes. Now, let's move into some other programs. Sure. Because earlier you mentioned. The program that is based on the six pillars. Yes. Our position for greatness youth program. So that was birth out of the need to be more intentional in strategic about. How we deliver our services prior to forming the program we had workshops here. We had workshops there. We partnered, but it wasn't consistent. And we didn't have our own group of young people. We didn't have our own group. So we say, let's just make it a program, and we focused on all of those workshops that we've been hosting throughout the area, and we just put it under one umbrella. So we focused on anti bullying collagen career, readiness financial literacy community service leadership in youth. Entrepreneurship and this is come over six years of what we've experienced from our young people what they need what we hear our parents talking about. Because at the end of the day, we have to deliver in service our population in this our young people in our parents. So also do. Wanna make a note that this program is not just for single parents. It is strictly our scholarship that focus is geared toward single paneth. Everything else we do is open to everyone every young person who wants the support in that capacity the youth. Entrepreneurship piece came two years ago as far as under our program because the started finding a whole bunch of young people who wanted to get into business for themselves. And we said, okay, let's give him an opportunity to showcase it. So with our annual vet called poetry emotion. And we've been doing that in partnership with vicious performing arts for the past five years. It's a fashion show fuse poetry. It's all youth in in our second year, we introduce vendors with our young entrepreneurs. So they were selling cookies and lemonade. Ing cakes jury that they made in their art work. It has just grown from there. And a lot of our young people got their start in business at that event. And they've just gone onto a mazing. Things fifteen example. So his name is fat. Daddy. We call him fat. Daddy o. Oh, it's all that daddy's country lemonade. His name is Ron Cape June. Ron Brown junior his mom, and I are good friends. We met on social media doing service work. He has some of the best lemonade around. And I'm not just saying that because I'm fan, but it's really good. But he's built his business from I think it was three lemonades at our very first event. He now has seventeen flavors. You can find him all around the DNV. They had an event today imam does 'paparazzi in his sister wanted to do some things. So it really is a family affair and we've watched him grow. He connected with another community organization to actually officially launch it. Meaning he has vowed his articles of formation he's legitimate. And I'm just excited for him. So was that that allows us to do what we do and say, you know, what there's a need. So did you think participating in poetry poetry show? That was his built his self esteem to be able to go forward to continue to develop his business. Yes. According to mom. Yes. Oh, how old is? He he is ten now. Yeah. So we had our so that was our second one. So that would have been he would have been what seven eight when he first launched it. And even mom said that your event was his very first event. So he's gotten he he's very outgoing. And that was never a problem for him. But he does his own sales. He'll charge your car. They'll tell you how much it is. He won't tell you though, or how to make. But he's very good at what he does very good. Yes. So if people are watching this, and they want to know, how do they get involved? What are some of the ways that the community can get involved to help? It takes two. They could volunteer were always looking for workshop facilitator. So if your skill set is career readiness matter of fact, we have someone who's doing the virtual session for career readiness and how to prepare an interview etiquette. If you are financially savvy wanna teach our young people how to manage their money. And when they go to college don't get the credit card, and you know, if you are in business, you should

"Welcome to that any the live talk show dedicated to providing personal development by providing emotional healing through sharing you create a happy life today at talk with Jamila, Kip who's personal struggles as a single parent led to the birth of own nonprofit called it takes two founded on the six pillars of anti bullying financial literacy college and career, readiness youth, entrepreneurship community service and leadership as you may have guessed by now it takes to help school age children become prepared any quips for the future. Welcome Jamila, Kip. Thank you so much needed for having me today. Appreciate it. Thank you for coming out. So tell me what struggles as a single parent led you to take on the even bigger struggle of studying nonprofit, sure. So when it was time to send my son to kindergarten, and he's now fourteen he'll be fifteen in may. I couldn't afford to buy school supplies and food for the week. I was able to do it with some assistance from family in France. Now, you working fulltime job fulltime job. Yes. Day in and day out day in and day out nine five and five. Employed as a at the time, I was doing customer service, and I've been in the customer service industry for over fifteen years now, so you know, in an organization while we're the most important part of an organization, we're also kinda lease pain. Right as well. I'm so it was a struggle in like, I said, I was able to get it done with some assistance from friends and family, but it was at that time that got laid it on my heart that although you're struggling with this one thing you're going to help others who were struggling as well. And you know, your pain becomes your perp. It does it does. But almost talk myself out of it. I actually sat on the vision for two years before I did anything because an addition to working full-time being a mom. I son was in football running track in an started going back to school as well online. I was like, okay. Well, how do I fit now during this time period? How did God continue because a lot of people struggle with what their purpose is what am I supposed to do? What am I put here for? How did it continuously come back to you time after time it kept nagging on me, you know, when you're supposed to do something. And it's like do it. Do it. Do it. Do it just kept coming back in different ways and always had that feeling of wanting to give back in. That's just my servant's spirit that I have innately. So we just kept coming back. And then it finally just fell into place when my son's track coach at the time who's a lawyer. I shared the vision with her, and she helped us to get everything started, you know, at no cost it was pro Bono. And she found our paperwork. She helped to really structure get the business out of my head and put it on paper. So while it was a while it was a little bit. It was difficult getting it done. It was also in a way easy getting it done because you didn't have to find the good lawyer, right? God provide at one four you have -solutely. You didn't have to come up with the money for it. Because she saw the vision and provided the services pro Bono. Yes. So all of that is a part of your purpose unfolding. Yes. In where you know. Is the it's difficult to treasure the road. But at the same time the rule continues on absolutely his so it's the timing. And I'll tell any of my clients, it is a timing thing. God will drop the vision. But I believe in timing as well. So when it happened it was supposed to happen. I just took the leap of faith. And he's like, okay. I've given you this now is your turn is time for you to be obedient. So once I said, yes, that's when things started to fall in place. And we celebrate it seven years as past February seven years seven years. Yes. In service to students in families. And was there ever a time? When you were starting it that you just wanted to give. Yes. But was that land because it was overwhelming at first. And then I didn't quite know what I was doing. Although I'm educated now, I have a masters in nonprofit in association management. But when I started at it was like, okay, here's his vision. What am I supposed to do with it? Now, I have these raise my hand. Call to action now people are depending on me to show up. It was. Gary. And when people always say do it scared. So I started out by doing scared with the education with the experience. But the people that were brought in in our path to get things launched it helped to overcome it and being transparent, which is what I always am couple years ago actually fell into about a depression because I was giving giving giving giving giving we do the work that we do we have to make sure we are fulfilling ourselves in. You can't give from an empty Cup. Right. I was empty. So I got to a point where I was just like I don't know that I want to do this anymore. But I got over myself with there was there one thing within developing the nonprofit that was that biggest brick wall for you. It was the support or the lack there of an out. So anyone that had a list of ten people who are new we're going to support next to their name. I wrote down how they were going to support when we officially launched. No one showed up. But it was at that point that I had to quickly learn that this is not for everybody. This journey is not meant for everyone. So it was getting over that initial shock of not getting that level of support. Macgyver has brought us every single person that we have needed for this vision to grow so step-by-step, the lawyer showed up got all your paperwork done. What was the next up? The next step was actually putting it in motion finding your board. And at that time. I had no idea what that was about. I didn't know who they were supposed to be all I knew that we had a vision, and we need people to help get this vision. Because as a nonprofit, no one owns a nonprofit. So we have a governing body, which is the border directors. So I did go with my trust circle. But I was about my trust circle. They were all church members. But one was in HR the other one don't with young people in counseling in their innocence. And the other was in the school system. So I said perfect this. Who we need to get started. Six pillars that you started. With it started with one started with our twelve later that scholarship is a lot. It is it is it started strictly with our tools for success scholarship, which is a water to students that live in single parent homes in those scholarships pay for school supplies books.

Because what she went through is not a loner story is not a one of a kind story. But we are here today to make sure that as the view is watching as you are here. You learn and we all. Do better is when you learn better, you do better. Now, you mentioned earlier that forgiveness is not a switch that you flip in walkaway from. But it's something that has to be managed on a regular basis. How did you get to a place of forgiveness for everything that you've been through? That place was actually behind bars when I was in a sale looking at the fifteen thirty years that I was supposed to be sent his with. I was upset and I was angry with God. Because I did everything that my grandmother told me to do if I prayed to God, then he would answer me if I got on my knees, if I cried out to him that he will make everything. Alright. And in that moment of being angry with him. There was a quiet voice in my ear because I was upset. I was just screaming like you left me. You left me? And that voice it I didn't leave you you left me. And so you have a lot of reflection time especially in prison where there's nowhere to go. And so I just started the really think about it. Because when I heard you left me, I'm trying to figure out what do you mean that I left you, and I had left from serving the life that he wanted me to serve going and going. Opposite direction. And so it had started to look at everything for an example, being the alternative lifestyle was a choice that I may because I really didn't like men and it was because of my dad not because they weren't interested in me. It was because I didn't have that relationship that I wanted with my father, and then I looked at. Okay. Well, I blamed my father for this. And then I blame my father for that. And I blamed him for all of these other things people have actions. But how we react is. What matters. Yes. And so if I continue to react to his actions, then I'm no better than he is. I'm no better than the next person. And so what I had to do is realize that I had to let that go. So that I could move on. I had to understand that they were not actions because of what he did. Yes. People do things all the time. Somebody might hit your car that doesn't mean you haul off and hit them when they get out the car. No you understand. An accident. And I believe truly in my heart that it was not my father's plan to be distant or separate out of my life. But I've happens, and I had to realize that for every action that he outplayed that I had to make my own reaction, and it could not be want to get back at him. And so from learning that I had to I forgive myself because I was the one who chose to do the things that I know I chose to pick up the drugs, I chose to be particular technique or activity that you did that helped you get to a place of forgiveness. So when I look back at it now, and the tools that I used to help other women and men as I you got to reveal it. And that's what I did. When it when I was in that sale. I was thinking about everything that I had gone through. And then you have to get to a stage where you have to release it in my releasing was okay, God, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being upset with you. I'm sorry for the decisions that I made. So it's an mittens you have to mid. In order for you to release it. And then I had to regain my confidence. Because how many of us have been in any type of relationship or situation ship? I like to call it sometime that you feel that your lack in that area. And that you can't go on if you've been in a relationship where somebody's broken your heart. Now, you're frayed to actually love again. So you have to regain confidence all over again in that area to know that hey, I am where the being love. And there is that person that's out there for me. So it's revealing releasing every gaining your confidence. How do you help people do that? So we go through a series of steps, and I talked to people, and they want to tell me everything that's happening today. And when I listened to them, I'm like, okay. So we need to go back there. Okay. Because that's typically were everything begins. There was a person that I was talking to dealing with her. She was in a domestic violence relationship. And I'm straight straightforward. I told her, you know, you come to me because you want help and I want to be that person for you. But there are some things that you're going to have to do you're gonna have to make the decision the conscious. And that's what forgiveness is actually making a decision deciding today that you will no longer being that stuck place. And so I told her I said within your relationship there are several things that can happen. You can continue to be in this relationship and be abused. You can either be so upset that something happens. And that you abuse them. Then you can be in a situation where you're going to jail because of it then you can be in a situation where you die. Which person enough forget the other situation. It can be the one that you walk away and you're moving towards new life. What person do you wanna play in this row? She says she wasn't ready. And so this like I said going back to it. It's a decision. So the first thing that we have to do in any place in any measure of this is to decide because I can talk to you all day long about what happened back then was happening right now. But if you have not made the conscious decision say, I'm moving forward. There's no where we can go. So that's the number one thing that told that I give somebody to make that conscious decision to be ready. You have to be ready get yourself, and I go back to looking at everything that happened to me. I was mentally concentrated before. I had even met the bar. Okay. Hold on break that down. Tell us what that means, mentally and concentrate is the place that you put yourself in the mindset that you put yourself in the lack mindset. I'm not worthy. I am. I'm not beautiful. You know, when I look in the mirror. Oh, I don't like the way my body looks. You put yourself in that place. Why not say, oh, I am beautiful. Oh, I'm going to change the way that my body looks. That's changing your mindset, giving you a new spirit a new life. It's like a putting on putting on an anointing on your face. Right. I go back to church because I am faith-based. When you go to church, you don't walk into church sometimes with the anointing on. No. Once you get into it. You start walking in it. Because if we did we wouldn't eat thirty to forty five minutes appraising, worship, we got into guest. You to get into that place. Right. You have to walk into their hair. And then as long as you continue continuously do it, then anointing will come. Okay. So now, let's get into blessed hand. Yes. Your latest book. Yes. This latest. Note that I just came out with one it's a mental health Cohen. It's not that easy. Stop telling me to get over it. That's a book collaboration that launched last month. Okay. A pathway to forgiveness. Yes. Blessed hands tell us what is what does this book about? So that book is merely six situations in my life that I had had to overcome f forgive myself in and one of those stories which stood out which is standing out strong to me today. It's called heaven's angel. And that is a story about an abortion it I hadn't why is standing out to me day. It's because all my travel here. It was literally the same direction. Like when I got to the area the facility of where we are. Now. I'm like, I remember the street. I remember the street, and it was taking me back to that place. You see on television where people, and this is something that I'm still working through you see on the television. Where people have the signs saying, you know, don't kill the baby you're going to hell this third. And so in that story, I share how I made the conscious decision to aboard and child and within that it was not just because I didn't want it. I just gone through a C section didn't wait with me. And my husband, we didn't wait. And you know, then it ended up having to we got pregnant, and so I was faced with challenges of not having a healthy child or me, not you know, being because everything wasn't healed properly yet. And so and I had dealt with postpartum depression. So I was already in this place. And I I really didn't want to be a mother. I love my. Done. But I didn't want to be a mother and to hear that I'm going to have to do this all over again. And the way that the surgery and everything I was just like I can't do this again. And so I made that decision. And when I did I went in I wasn't far loan. So I was able to take a pill, and they said that I would have to come back, and I was really upset about having to come back to deal with this all over again. It's a lot just to get there that point and that point in time, and so I had to come back. And when I came back, they told me that the baby was still there. I could still carry to term, but it will be deformed. Because partial of her brain was gone, and I say her because I know it was a her. I don't care what anybody says, I knew my son was a son, and I know that she was a sheet. So it just brought back memories of that. And I'm still working with forgiving myself in the book is the first time that I've shared it that book came out actually, January two thousand nineteen and so I had I had to release it. I'm continuing to release it. But the biggest part of me is that I bought it. Somebody's destiny. And so I think that's the part that hurts so much. But okay. 'cause that can take me to a whole 'nother place. Okay. What advice would you give somebody that's going through that?

I mean, your videos that you post for motivation on social media go through the roof. Everybody loves them. Thank you. And the comments are furious. People are impacted by what you're sharing. Do you feel that that love coming back to you when you post those videos, and you get thousands of us? It's hard. It's hard to say because I started off in this journey saying that if I can just change one person's life in just the unknown ripples involved with that then I'm satisfied, but also competitive so. All right. So this is supposed to be doing with. This is supposed to be saying. So when you put metrics involves it just gives you this place of like. Competition, and it's not really a competition. So the the places where I get the biggest nuggets or when people leave comments and they're saying how they're personally affected by it. Because while you get thousands of us, there's very few people that actually reach out to you and actually have a personal conversation. And it's those people that I really really cherished. Because like I mean, I appreciate everyone for giving me time because that's my thing time. How do you? Choose your topics. I live life, and it's amazing. How just on a weekly basis things come up and everything is just shown up at the right time in my life. I can't lie. It's just. Okay. Let's go with it. Yeah. Says simple you were talking about like what my last post was. This is the perfect example, my last two posts so a couple of weeks ago is just in this place where I had to do video, and it didn't really want to do one. I'm just like, oh my goodness. Why am I doing this like in the sea of just so many people delivering content? Why am I doing this? 'cause who is actually hearing this who's benefiting from it. And it certainly said I'm busy like there's plenty of things I could be doing with my time. And so I mean video just encourage myself to be truthful, and it said, you know. Who who am I in a sea of many like, I am me? And I I recognize my worth my gifts now. So I have to realize to the extent that I can share that. And encourage people to do the same. Then it's worth it. And when we start talking about, you know, talents and gifts like outside of like. Yeah. It was a neuroscience major. But I was also a student athlete like I played volleyball. Me your jersey. They did you know the year after my husband passed, I'm still in this dark place and trying to figure out who I am. And I'm surrounded by people that are celebrating like the things that led me to those accomplishments, and it was really an awesome thing. And then so like the day I post my video Colgate alum reaches out to me is like did you see this article? And I was just like, oh, no I didn't. And I was just like number one. I'm not really history. Like, I feel a little dated now. But for black history month, you know, there was an article about me, and you know, what I had done athletically at Colgate. So it was just like the timing of it all and it's not something I share a lot. But it's huge in my life. The people that were part of my life at that time, then continue to pour in like my team showed up in a big way. You know, decades later after I lose my husband. They were right there. And I was just like, wow. Wow. So in so being down and feeling like I'm against all odds. Like, those are some of the things that happen on the court. Like you look at the scoreboard. You know, how you're feeling you see the other team like I was at least drawing from a familiar place of feeling down in new that I could still make it. So. Do you have a go back and watch your videos to see whether or not how'd that motivational moment affects you. In real time. I look at it. But I haven't gone back into 'cause I guess this is Ben. Maybe actually a year, videos and. I know I've grown a ton. I I've grown a ton in the past several years. So my writing my speaking, my interactions me being more comfortable in my own skin being able to share without like breaking down knowing that is gonna be okay. Like you start off at a point where you're talking about. It's going to be okay. But it's not really, okay. Right. Right. And then you're just like in a place where you're like. Okay. So yeah, what does this optics that you've talked about and you pass videos? Oh my goodness. I think the biggest thing that I just recently realized was, you know, one of my tagline is, you know, I hope that we all find their urgency to live this life. According to a dream some purpose. And I've realized that that's a whole big mouthful. But like what does it mean? What does it mean? How do you apply the Calcio? And so I've mentioned that I work in medicine. See change happen. All the time when it personally affected me, it came true in a very different way. I'm a different provider because of this like those walls that I had up in caring for those people like I have no choice, but to have more compassionate in those scenarios or have a sense of like. More ability to relate and so. When I say purpose intention like purpose intention in time. You never know when those changes are going to happen. And so if you dig deep down, and you find your purpose 'cause they all believe we all have one we may have several. But like, I believe that our gifts are tied in with those. And Sophie realized that you know, we can define time. You know, sixty seconds in a minute, sixty minutes in an hour. But what's the time of our life? We we don't know like we know the average life expectancy in clearly my husband left before way before his time. So we would define his time. Yeah. That's an excellent point. We would define us his time. And so I believe that got has a plan for me. And I don't know the time I have to complete that. So every day going to be very intentional of my time efforts. And I'm going to. The most I can do each twenty four hours. That's why I do so much. Like, let's go are you following?

The median income in this area is somewhere between eighty and ninety K. Yes. Six months of living. This business is a lot of money. It's a lot of money. Yeah. But what I what I generally say, you know, that's kind of the target goal. You're not you have to start someplace I was hoping to start small, you know, even if you have maybe one two, and then really as you start progressing in your in your employment. Sometimes you get raises and sometimes people increase their lifestyle when hit that raise something up hit and do all of that. Maybe you can capture some of that raise and directed towards your cash. Reserve not all of it. But let go at this grocery shopping and get a personal chef. Yeah. All of that. Exactly. Yeah.

Now, let's say people who are like we call brianna and TI call them paper chasers. Yes. And they are all about trying to achieve that higher standard of living. So they're constantly earning money, but the also constantly spending. What they earn correctness ni- mostly they're attached to that higher. Life living that they've envisioned for themselves. What do you? What are the reasons that we how do you break? What are the reasons I say so emotionally attached to what they're trying to achieve versus planning where they are whether they are. Yeah. Exactly. And it goes back to that conversation that we had at the beginning is how did you grow up with money because if you saw your parents doing the same thing really trying to keep up with the Joneses? So to speak. Then more than likely, that's what you were going to do when you get your own money and your own house on your own family. So how you do with that when you were growing up or so it that that's that emotional attachment or if you saw your parents arguing all the time about money or lack of money then in your household. You're going to let that occur and you're going to be really frugal. I mean, but in a time period where we have tala payers Steve Harvey's. Oprah's that say, you know, you have to keep trying. Yes, don't ever give up and you had to take risk, correct? But however, you on that side of the coin take risk, but then on this side of the coin plan for a rainy day because you wanna you wanna threw everything at that, which you're trying to achieve. Yes. All right. Exactly. In your financial plan is really looking at what you what lifestyle you want to lead. And then, you know, really be realistic on can I cheat that but also realistic. About exactly what that is to you. And if that's where you want to throw caution to the wind say, okay, this is what I'm planning, but I'm going to take risk and upgrading my lifestyle or taking a particular position. Then you'll have a little bit of that cushion that we talked about. So you can go ahead and take some risk a little bit of risk as well. But you also want to have kind of a game plan that will keep down of that slow and steady, and then you can also kind of take your risk on this. I always tell it's kind of when you're investing always call it the racehorse workhorse, okay scenario, so you'll have a workhorse, which you know, out in the field ploughed consistent movements of what they need to do. And then you're racehorse would be more of your speckled who've investing or that taking that risk. And then that's that's a small portion. But you're kinda bit Neil yourself there. But it's more of a race type thing. But if you can if it goes fast, and it goes. Fast. Then you have that opportunity, but you don't wanna use their racehorse in the workhorse racehorse for the workhorse situation now. So you always wanna make sure you have both running at the same time. What emotions a what reasons do we continue to make bad decisions without money. Well, a lot of it is really how you're affected by how you grew up. That's one some of it is really about lifestyle choices. So we get a motion about and we get attached to things and accumulating things, and we get really attached in motion Lee to it. And so we throw caution to the wind and way, we're spending a lot of money. Sometimes you're so fearful because you did lack of money the to grow up with that. You don't want to spend a dime, and you really emotional about that. So I see that a lot is that people are scared to even spend money on there. Theirselves. I said you have plenty of money, you know, to us. But because of that emotion that they grew up with that hurt that still there. They don't wanna spend anything because all of my friends that are married the spenders of merit to savers. Yes. And it is funny to watch. It is. It is. No, we're at chick. Fillet? You Anita aware.

She schooling us on the best ways to handle toxic nece in new work environment. Yes. Both from the employee perspective and manager because we're all responsible, absolutely culture. Absolutely. So what are some of the top three ways that everybody from any perspective manager or employees? Kin. Make the work environment pleasurable, so number one. And again, just from what I've seen over my career NS the easiest said than done, but I'm going to say it. Try to avoi- engaging in the office politics. Oh my goodness. It's. Just try. It was something the best the only way they're going to get ahead, but non times out of ten is disruptive. And is so easy to get sucked. In even if you try to stay out of a so easy to get sucked in. But once the politics star happening as an employee. Sometimes you're not even you want to set a boundary and try not to go there. But usually a lot of the conflict that I see in the workplace. Unfortunately, there's a lot of he says she said there's a lot of oh, I don't like her don't like him, or we all we're we're Facebook friends. Now, I'm made because you know, something has happened. And so you had a party and you invited everybody else from office. But me, yes. Yes. And then there's the the drama. So and then sometimes you have a manager. That's like watching the whole thing is like I don't wanna get involved as drama, you know, and and so and then escalates. Yes to the point that it becomes very disruptive. And then it is sometimes it gets to the point point where performance is then lacking. And so, and then we are addressing a whole nother issue. Right. Instead of you know, we could've nipped in the bud early on. So if you feel you know, that you are in a situation where that is happening to you try to engage early with your manager or or HR and try to get some advice on how to navigate the land. Mine. Land-mine later because you step you're too. Sometimes it's just the whole thing. Yeah. So so that's one thing. I lot of that a lot of issues come around that office politics. Yes. It does. It's a, you know, I tell people, you know, can we just come to work do our job and go home. Sometimes that is just not the case. So so that's the first thing if you can out of office politics, if you can try not to get sucked it, and if you feel yourself like important, try to go to someone that's trusted where you can get some advice on how to stay. I don't want to be involved in that, you know, I wanna stay over here. You know? And if that's not your manager that you can go to see if you can find someone within HR could even be a mentor that you can run a situation by to get some advice on how to handle. So that's number one number two. If you're a manager you have to address issues early and not wait. Well, okay. 'cause if you don't address them early it just adds to the toxic workplace because non times ten the issues not gonna go away. Just because we look the other way. Right. So address the issue early. And if you're not comfortable address. In issue early. This is one big thing. I like to say a lot of managers don't come to HR because they're like, oh, I don't want HR involve, and what that means is you can just come to us for advice. We don't have to come sit in a meeting with you with your employees. We're there to even advise you on how to handle it. And it may not even be tough for HR to come in feeling as well. If I go to HR, I got the document everything that's the one thing. Well, come to us early before we even get to that point. Right. It may be just even for you to have a conversation with someone and you're not documenting it. Whatever asked me for my paper. The stigma. We have right now, we do documentation come to us early. You know before it gets out of hand because you come to late, then we are asking you. Okay. How long it's been going on six months. What have we done? Oh, not you haven't had any compass. Then we're like, okay. Well, where are we? We're trying to assess the situation at that point. So if you can't if you see things going into a direction, you know, trying to engage early before. So don't play office politics as a manager address. Stay on the pulse. Yes. Your culture in your environment. Absolutely. And then the third thing because we are human beings. We can't expect people to set it off. Okay. When they come into the workplace, right stuff. Life happens stuff is going on in people's personal lives. So and they and yes, they bring it to work sometimes. So if you see someone that is struggling, yes, right? Oh, you see a difference or change in behavior have some compassion and reach out to the person manager, or at least let notify us so HR we can reach out and to see if we can be supportive to the individual to the employees because sometimes that's all it takes is making us aware if we're not aware, and if you're not comfortable in doing then let us reach out and just say, hey, how can we support you? And like I said earlier, you know, there's so many different resources that we can connect an individual with to try to get some. Assistance because we don't want our employees struggling, right? Yeah. So it does negatively affect if you have one employee that's top in even if you have some medium wins and some low ones once you don't address what's going on the negativity. That's going on in the office it brings everything else down. Yes. Absolutely. So again, just being aware, you know, and if you especially someone that's on your team if your manager, but even a worker, right? We talked about the cues we work side by side. Right. And so we we sometimes we're talking we're sharing and sometimes we notice our co worker soccer's different win the school called the upset because then shall. Yeah. And yeah, here you when you're at home. Well, your in the office which husband calls because he can't find his black Penn little shoot. I can hear you in office. When you sit Nova there in you're you're talking to your co-worker, not realizing that you're in an open work environment. And you're having this conversation about whether you and your husband arguing because you and your wife arguing right because your five year old wants a cellphone everybody in school has a cell phone, and I have a cell phone. Yes. So for you to then think that there's any level of privacy. Right. When you discuss it in an open environment. Yes. That it's that's unrealistic to think that you're going to have that privacy. Absolutely. I mean, and so again relationships happen, right? Co workers, and you colleagues, and you know, you built in relationships this drama in HR because it is it is why start your own. Leadership in career coaching company. Yes. Because I'm in HR, and I've seen so many things and I see split particularly women leaders struggling oh. And of course, there's a little bit of of me too in this because as I've moved up the corporate ladder, you know, I know what things that I wish I had you know, when I was coming up the corporate ladder. So I just have a passion from women managers, you know, to again, try to find their voice in this environment this corporate environment. Sometimes we're the only female on teen through. You may be the only minority very wanna team on executive team. I've been there. I've been the only female in minority in in a rural Fulham in. How did you find your voice and had that courage to speak up and let your voice? Be known as I just have a passion for that. I work with women on executive presence leadership presence. How do you show up in a room? You know, how do you present yourself because you say something when you walk in the room before you even open your mouth, right? So I just have that passion of working. How does a female leader be assertive? Yes. Not aggressive. Yes. And not get that, be nickname. Yes. Yes. Unfortunately, we sometimes we do get the bad rep, you know, a male can act the same way in the workplace, and we'll be rewarded. V rewarded for that? Right. Let's see. But when women show that, you know, hey, I know my stuff. Hey, I'm in can contribute to this conversation, and no must up can contribute value to this conversation. And when we speak of sometimes everybody's like oh. But sometimes we do have to be a little to be hurt. Because sometimes we're looked over very much. So yes, yes. And so you put idea on the table, and then, you know, everybody kind of brushes by and then Bobby says the same idea and everybody's like, oh, yeah. Thank you, Bobby. I'm glad you agree with me. Put that ideal on the table ten minutes ago. Now, let's let's talk about that. Right. But it takes courage to to do that. You know, some women leaders will retreat because they're not being hurt. It will push back. And because they're like, okay. No one's listening. Anyway. So why should I even try to you know? So them how I value. I do bring knowledge to the table. And so I just I you know, I know how Affeldt in situations like that. And so if I can help somebody. As they're going up their own career ladder. And so that takes some self reflection some suffo- wear nece, right? And so that's what I coach on, you know. Whatever, you know, everybody's not the same. You can't do this cookie cutter thing, it's whatever authentic to you. And your personality. You know, my personality is like really, I just sit that ten minutes ago. Right. But everybody's not like that, you know. And so it has to feel genuine and offense for them as the feel are thin -tic and genuine for you. Yes. You spend so much time at work.

I'm so excited and happy to be here. Thank you very much for coming on driver for way, other side states, go hang out. So what made you go into mental health in the first place. You know, I didn't wanna do it. When I got outta high school. I was I wanna do a career where I'm gonna make some good money. I went to Morgan, and I'm gonna this engineer. I just wanted to graduate from school making six figures and just wanted to build things make things work. And that's but I knew I was supposed to middle health always felt like mental health and pay any money. So I was kind of running from that calling and I got to this one math class. And I was always good at mad, and I just cannot understand it took calculus, and they were like, well, we want you to find a limit to Infinity, and as I could not figure it out. I mean, I spent hours and hours and tutoring. I stayed up all night. And I was just like, okay, Lloyd here you been there done that.

Was there anything that you begin to learn that made you reconsider? Oh, boy, not necessarily a psychology. I think what I got to my masters. I definitely wanted to reconsider wanted to run because when you get to the root and the level and the nature of people's hurt. And we really see the core of what drives behavior often times. It's so much easier to just turn a blind eye on walkaway. Because once you know, you're responsible and accountable in things that's easy to judge. You can no longer. Just judge those things quite so easily. You kind of develop empathy and sympathy for people that sometimes other people don't have empathy and sympathy from any almost kind of puts you in that same category. What you do empathize with the other side, you know, so it's kind of like the balancing act. Balancing act, so how long have you been in the mental health professionals have been in the midst of healthy mystique approximately says two thousand eight our had to say so a little over two routing years.
