"The early morning hours. And they didn't come out at all when it rained. You were doing the drive as you done before, but it turned out differently at the checkpoint. What happened? Well, I got the checkpoint. I like it 6 o'clock. On the morning that I got arrested, I pulled up to the checkpoint. The few said he looked in my direction, I looked nervous to him. And the other officer that was there, he had a dog. And the dog's name was Weston. I think what his name, and they said that dog alerted the other man that there were, there was something in the back of the RV that I started moving in Arlene after I graduated from using the hay Bayer. Why did you switch to RVs? Because I could get more people in there. The doctor went to the door, the RV opened the door and he said, oh, my God. You need to put these to the most meal. You need to go in the secondary line. And they came over there and they said, you had 50 people inside that RV. But there was nothing like endangerment. They weren't in danger by any in any means. I mean, they had clean clothes on. They had food to eat and they had water drink. And it was a nice atmosphere inside that RV. It was clean. I was immediately arrested. Taken into the border patrol station. Now as interrogated, briefed upon what was going on and where did you do? I told the truth. I told exactly what I knew. You know, you don't have to do this. You don't have to say nothing. You can wait till you have a Tony president. I said, no, I'm willing to speak. I was trying to live in that line. Dennis, were you relieved at all that you'd been caught? Yes, yes, that'd be very relieved. Why is that? Because I've been a drug I've been a drug addict for the last 50 years. So they asked you about whether you've been doing and you told them the whole story? Yes, sir. Dennis was sentenced to 52 months in federal prison. I've got into a residential drug drug program while I was in prison. I got out 18 months early. I went to a halfway house, I'm a free man right now. I mean, I'm still on paper. I still have a probation office. I'm more probation for the next two years. When you look back at the everything you went through, would you do it again? No, not just no, but hell no. It took three and a half years of my life away from me. Dan, as you've seen the border, problem close up from a point of view, not many people have. If you were in charge, how would you fix it? I'm not a political man. By any means, I don't like our president. I just, but when he opened the borders up, I think that was a way for some that was a way for them to get a little bit further in life.

"Eileen Greene and 93 Eileen is engaged as a life coach, hypnotherapist, and psychotherapist. Eileen is an empowered and fearless woman who strongly believes we can achieve our goals and dreams at any age. Alien will share her emphasis on the importance of the words we say to ourselves and how these words can profoundly affect us either in a positive or negative way. As negative self talk influence our wellness, we'll hear more about that. And Arlene will describe for us for healing approaches to certain physical complaints, such as pain and headaches, and for those who think they're too old to change, Eileen has words that wisdom will allow one to hear. First, just a little background. Eileen is an active life coach using hypnotherapy and psychotherapeutic methods to help her clients. After raising her three sons, she went down an unrelenting campaign to educate herself and experience life to the first. She became one of the first people to be certified in neurolinguistic programming by Tony Robbins. She's a TED Talk lecturer, a certified hypnotherapist, and she completed a master's degree in spiritual psychology, as well as a two year program in volunteer work from the university of Judaism. Eileen, I'm very happy to have you with us today. Thank you for being a guest. And welcome. And I'm very happy to be your guest. Great. Great. I've had the pleasure of speaking with you, and you do share words of wisdom. Well, my goal. I think we have a lot of good words to share. So I'm looking forward to this. I always like to open by asking our guests to just tell us briefly about the journey that got you to where you are today. I know you're got a lot of years under your belt, but maybe the highlights to share with our listeners, how you got to where you are today. Well, being 93, I was born three months before the depression starting in 1929. And I fortunately have a visual memory. So I do go way, way back to the time that I had 5 polio to time that I was a black kid who was black and white. It was good or bad. It was right or wrong. I mean, you were good girls, or you were bad girls. So I married young in order to be a good girl, which meant that I had not had any previous intercourse. Which today is a totally different world. But what I didn't care for about myself was my judgment. And the judging myself, judging others, so I decided to go on a journey of education. And it took me 25 years to get my college degree because I raised three children along with a wonderful husband. And I was eager to move forward. I have three sons, 6 grand children, two great grandchildren, and two more on the way. Wow. So that's pretty terrific and I feel very, very blessed. So after the time I spent getting my degree, I decided to have a lot of certifications. And one of the most interesting certifications was hypnotherapy, and I was given the ability to bring back initial sensitizing experiences. Which can be conscious or subconscious. And I will talk about one incident that just blew my mind. Early on in my hypnotherapy Sessions, when people came to my home, I had this lovely lovely young woman who I was able to bring back to an initial sensitizing experience that I could not find out where she was. So my questions, of course, were, what do you see? What are you hearing? What are you feeling? And all I kept hearing from her was, it's very dark. It's a gun scene, anything. Very dark, but I do hear my mother and father arguing. And my father is very weak. Okay, after the session, I dashed to the library because it was during the days where there was no Google no chrome, no Internet. And the library did acknowledge my thought. She was in the womb. Blew my mind. Wow. But now, we know that mothers are told to sing to the children in their room. To put their hands on their belly, send love, send music, send happy thoughts. Sure. That did not exist when I raised my three children. In fact, my husband was never allowed to see any of the births. So that was quite an education about a sub conscious experience. Sure. Sure. And it enlightened me on the ability to rewrite the initial sensitizing experience. And that has been a wonderful thing for me to be able to do. And that's an approach that you use with your clients. Among others that I have learned along the way. So when I have a client, I initially interview them about various things. And I set them up with homework. I moved them into places where I can judge whether it's an experience that they're being able to recall or one that is hidden. Now, there are certain people that I find almost impossible to help. And those are people that are victims. Victims are people that never want to take responsibility for themselves. It's always somebody else's fault. With that condition, they don't want to be helped. So one of the things that are most important to me is when I find that people do want to be helped. And they're either. So I began with breathing, which is so important. You need to center yourself. You need to be able to focus. So you breathe into your stomach and you breathe out slowly. And you do that several times until you are centered. Then I find it necessary in the morning

"There. It is again to see that sort of energy being taken into something like this. You love to see it One other group though Quickly that has decided to get you know. Throw their weight around in this debate. Over abortion access is the satanic temple They are using you their. Irs recognized religious status to challenge the bill as well and they're saying that their followers have a right to an abortion because it's part of their religion They said quote to satanic temple stands ready to assist any member that shares. Its deeply held religious convictions regarding the right to reproductive freedom Accordingly we encourage any member who resides in texas in wishes to undergo the satanic abortion ritual within the first twenty four weeks of pregnancy to contact the satanic temple. So we may help them. Fight this law directly. They've done this kind of stuff in the past two. Because you're saying like well if that's our religion than this is also the deal where they said if you're going to have ten commandments. Stuff in the capitol building. I think it was in missouri or somewhere like the in there too. Yeah um perfunctory. Because if we're going to present all religions right and point. This is a more of a point than i think.

"Take advantage of these innocent. We always get the hate mail on these things right. He's gotta shut that off. Let's switch over to google So tell me the difference. You guys like starting on facebook. In following around with google i see different strategies here so tell me why why google in. Let's get into a little bit more in depth. So yeah on the google side of things you can spend a lower budget still compete on there and get the clips in the door. The way we like to start it on. Facebook is that i'm doing. You're typically have a higher cost per click. You're going to have a higher league cost where it might be two to three to four times lead costs on facebook but you can use them strategies to get some strict some some good clicks in the door and you might get one hundred clicks in the door and get one lead so other ninety nine people if you can Pixel them to your facebook pixel then start. Retargeting them on facebook. You're kind of creating that full funnel. Where all these high tech clicks as the first time they're hearing about you they might not trust you then he come back with some personal personal facebook ads. They start to get to know who you are. So it's like. Oh yeah. I found them google. I clicked here in a new start seeing it working where. Hey yeah. you're you're the cost on. Google might not be sustainable. You might be like. I'm paying six hundred dollars compared to fifty dollars a lead or one hundred dollars lead on facebook. It's like that's actually which driving somebody sees somebody. Clicks goes back through facebook. You'll see that left on the facebook side. So that's why we like a lot of people. They're nervous when they get into digital advertising. And you start somebody on a platform at super nervous coming in three to four or five hundred dollars leads. Yes so even here. In pittsburgh we pay seventy five sixty five bucks a lead on facebook when google. We still pay one fifty two hundred but at pencils. Yeah it makes sense from it. Would you take in that. Multi-pronged approach if you were be absent of either facebook or google. You're saying that those costs both go up. Yeah so google will naturally Rundown your league costs on facebook. There's always like a also a limit that you can push on facebook but here in pittsburgh week every time we spend over three grand we get the same amount of leads. Arlene causes just hire on facebook. But if we push that three grand than push extra to grandma on google see the league cost come down more opportunity. There super interesting end. Generally spending like a questions we get a lot is like okay. How large in my audience be right. If i'm going to go out there in creek or do ads on facebook. What should be the size of my audience. And if that's the case. I must do. I need to spend on that. Audience will you. It depends on your market because like no matter what i the size of the audience could be like. That might not be the size of your audience in your market so like if you're markets one hundred thousand people you obviously you need to look at. How many people are you reaching for ten dollars for one hundred dollars back it out. See how much you can flood your market for in than you can back it out the okay. I can reach fifty percent of my market for x. amount based on the numbers It we typically say like you wanna spend about a.

Honey like that, you know, the stock market is set up to close out President Biden's 1st 100 days in office and third in this with this already happened. This past Thursday because this is written what Tuesday or so Wednesday, maybe as the best start of the presidential term since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt. What stock market? Yes and P 500 only thing the media sees is being the stock market. It is interesting to see what has happened, though. So far, you know, this year to the end of April. You're basically looking at about a 20. 9% Whether your way if we look at the S and P 500, which is all they're really talking about, because they think they don't know that there's another part of march. Don't tell him that there's other parts of the stock market. We don't want them No. Hi. Yeah, it's uh, Let's see what is the s and P up up to that point in time. Oh, man, I don't know. Um That's pathetic. I should know this. Let's see. What is it? It's up year to date return for the S and P 500 is about 11.8% 11.8%. Which is wow. You know, it's it's almost one third. What small values Doctor. If people would pay attention to other parts of the market, you know, isn't it funny? That was kind of those kind of sarcastic, wasn't it, guys? Uh, yeah, It was just still just a little bit. But yeah, and nearest, like, well indexed funds are only Behind the small value by about 5%. So that's that's not bad, either. Um That was actually aimed it, but only five of the 55 companies are making up a large Yeah, if you take the Vanguard Total stock market index fund, which is what about 3700 companies and you have two companies make up 10% of it, which is absolutely insane to me. But I think it's just it is interesting to see that it is. I love statistics like that. It's the biggest start since the Great Depression. And and yet, you know, you had a lot of people we had to call. One of our guys had to call in here in the office and says Thank you so much for talking me off the ledge and you know yet remember what month, he said, But it was one of those things where you know because of the election because of the change in presidency. Person was pretty pretty nervous, and you know, it's as we basically say, You know what the reality of it is. When the election was going on before the election actually happened. Stock markets were already handicapping the winner. And saying, Well, if this happens in as Arlene, you said, one time and I like this, you said, Hey, look, here's the deal Companies have and this was back when I was a trump, Hillary, you know they have a Hillary plan and they got a trump plan. You know, it's just which one? Are they gonna pull out? If whichever one wins, they're going to pull out their plan. If Hillary wins, this is going to be how we're going to approach business over the next four years. If Trump wins, this is how we're going to approach business. And you know, that is so true. That's what companies do. They don't just sit there and wait for stuff to happen to them. They're not stupid. But they actually go in and, you know, set things in motion that will help them the most based on what are likely the changes that will come about based on the new presidency. But it's a video of you look as since the If you look at since the vaccine Came out large. U. S. Stocks are up about 19% since the sense of vaccine, but 1919% or so since the vaccine was announced, 20% actually And small value of about 57% and micro cap stocks. Small companies about 48% and 43% for small and value stocks, basically about double the return approximately double the return of the S and P. 500.

What's Behind the Recent Violence in Northern Ireland?
"The violence on the streets of northern ireland. This week is the worst thing. In years the unrest has largely come from unionist or loyalist factions. those in favor of unity. With great britain were loyal to its crown night after night mobs targeted. Police officers with bricks and molotov cocktails more than fifty officers have been injured politicians including the country's leader. I minister arlene foster of the democratic. Unionist party held an emergency meeting yesterday. Calling for calm injury tree. Frontline officers victims terrorized. How much to people's property the harm to northern ireland image. In our centenary year us take us backwards. A new brick no bottle no patra bone thrown has shaved or ever cheese anything but -struction arm on the scale of that destruction harm and fear has brought to international attention. Prompting a statement from white house press secretary jen psaki. We are concerned by the violence in northern ireland joined the british irish and northern irish leaders in their calls for calm rioting on northern. Ireland's streets is uncomfortably familiar with roots in sectarian divides that go back centuries in nineteen ninety eight. The good friday agreement devolved the government and put an end to the decades of brutal clashes known as the troubles. What's happening now is fueled by more. Recent events represents appointed threat to that hard won peace. Really we've had several nights of pretty consistent and quite serious violence across northern ireland. This has been going on for more than a week annoy. It has spread from londonderry to belfast. To some of the smaller provincial ballymena carrickfergus etcetera.
Northern Ireland assembly meets after sixth night of unrest
"Edition of the briefing with me. Andrew mueller last night for the sixth consecutive night northern ireland witnessed scenes of the kind of violence likely to prompt considerable agitation in observers with long enough memories. More than fifty. Five police officers are known to have been injured in the last week and considerable damage done to buildings and vehicles. The worst of the most recent disturbances occurred around one of these so-called peace walls which separate nationalist and loyalist communities in west belfast. The northern ireland assembly has been recalled for an emergency session at stormont today on joined with more on this by lord. Peter hain former secretary of state for northern ireland lord as you would know better than most people the good agreement did not end sectarian tension in northern ireland. There has been sporadic tension and violence over the decades since but measured against that scale. How bad is what we're seeing. Now was nothing like as you indicate the level of bombing and assassination and horror at the said. He has also troubles brought to northern ireland. Whistle the terrorism but It is serious and it needs to be addressed not just by northern ireland's leaders who displaying frankly a lack of leadership which is really disturbing but also by trade minister boris johnson and state for northern ireland who've been pretty absent from the scene in northern ireland now full quite a while and especially over this. What's your read of what's behind this because there is always the trap of reading significance which might not exist into what might just be a bunch of board young men looking for trouble. No this is that there are elements of that and they're a variety of other factors but the main problem has arisen over frustration amongst the unionist community the protestant community over the fact that there are checks and controls in for businesses doing trade. With great britain with england scotland or wales across the irish sea northern ireland of course is on an island with the republic of ireland to the cells and also within the united kingdom and within the united kingdom the rest of the united kingdom there are no barriers to trade of any kind between scotland. And or between wales and england for that matter scotland wales but they're on house result of brexit across the irish sea between england scotland and wales to northern ireland for the first time and that is the reason because the type of brexit that boris johnson. The prime minister pursued which was to break any real alignment with the european trade and customs arrangements and to go for at entirely separate of great britain but in order to make sure that the good friday peace process and the stability which has brought since ninety nine hundred was maintained. The irish border had to be kept open. Let's say the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland to itself as it has been now for decades and has become invisible with all sorts of human activity. Crossing it in their efforts not had the toxic role played a toxic role. Because it's been invisible it did in generations gone by and that's that's also the good if however that's it become the external frontier customs frontier of the european union. Then it could have ignited all those old problems that had beset and an bedeviled northern ireland. So instead what boris johnson agreed to was to keep the border open that men the northern ireland remained in the european union's customs union and it's trading markets but that's Inevitably because the united kingdom was leaving Great britain would be outside those arrangements so they have to be checks across the irish sea between northern ireland and great britain. of course. The prime minister denied this in his normal airy way At the beginning on the unionists and loyalists in particular who some of the most hardline involved feel betrayed. Because he didn't he wasn't straight with them way. Do you save in the causal connection between that dissatisfaction with the post brexit arrangements. And what we've seen in west belfast. Is it possible that there are people who are or were associated with loyalist paramilitarism. Who are leveraging that discontent to cause trouble. Yes there are and they're also criminals amongst them who drug. Traffic is and so on who've presented a police crackdown which has been quite effective in their communities to try and get rid of this drug trafficking problem and bought ignited. Not because of that so much though it's fit into it but also but primarily because suddenly loyalist protestant unionists suddenly found that Country what boris johnson told them. There are actually checks and controls strangling a lot of northern ireland businesses in a mountain of tape and naturally they see that as a break within the united kingdom because which puts northern ireland in a different place from say england scotland or wales and so they feel that their fundamental beliefs in the the union of the united kingdom northern ireland. Being within that is being threatened. And that is what ignites it. There was none of this until that issue suddenly arose around new year because the prime minister frankly say told a lot of porky's on us and didn't level with the unionist community and they suddenly found themselves in this predicament and had created Insecurity and understandable anxiety out of which these other factors criminality usa Vandalism and so on out of which that's fed you mentioned earlier a an absence of leadership both in northern ireland and in the united kingdom what would a constructive response from especially northern irish politicians. At this point look like presumably not like the one We saw her on twitter from arlene foster who went and it is a a term with which you will be familiar. Full water battery Suggesting that the violence will die quote. Take the focus off the real lawbreakers incheon. Fine that's probably not the most helpful into intercession. She could have made at this point. Is it well when you become first minister which is effective northern ireland as she is Although it's an unusual arrangement that she has joins us with the deputy minister. Michelle neil who's a shouldn't fain leader when you reach these positions you've got to speak for the whole of the community promises and president presidents naturally have their own party agendas to follow in their own party members to satisfy in any country in any democratic system. But you're trying to speak for the whole nation and that for the whole nation as well once you assume those positions and what has been disappointing about both of them and especially in recent days. Me aline fosters utterances. She's not adopted that role. She's effective acting as a party politician. A democratic unionist party rather than speaking for the whole of the the the the community across northern ireland and across the religious and political divides that have bedeviled for so many generations. And i think that's the kind of leadership we need. And we have gossips equally across the water London has been virtually silent on northern ireland. Now full rarely ever since David cameron and the conservatives came to power in two thousand ten under make this point on a on a party. Basis is a leave a politician and also it was labor secretary of state for northern ireland. A because it's traditionally been a nonpartisan issue between both the major parties. I make it. Because i'm genuinely an i've being hugely critical of the the absence of of number ten downing street of the prime minister in a way. That's attorney blend. Gordon brown were in vogue. John major's conservative prime minister before them. playing an honest broker role effectively. What they've done is said will not you know the the good friday process the peace settlement that i helped to negotiate in two thousand seven that brought the old enemies to share power together. That that's all done and dusted and therefore we can concentrate on the other pressures of government and that was fatal So we only seen a couple of sentences from the prime minister over the last few days when parts of belfast up in flames and a couple of tweets from the northern ireland secretary of state. Frankly that's not good enough. They should be convening all party. Talks in person to try and resolve these as labor shattered secretary. St louis hague has called for And they should be on the case all the time instead of effectively absence without leave as has been the case over northern ireland now sadly for a number of years lord haein. Thank you as always for joining us. You're listening to the briefing. Here is markle's ailing goffin. With the days of the headlines. Thanks andrew in the serum institute.

On then, obviously, you got the big sites in Fort Worth and Arlene to Dallas is they're working on their convention site to try to get it a little bit better, eh? So we're making some headway there. Here's But I got to tell you how. When we see stories like this, we have to report on them. We have to bring him to you. But we don't enjoy doing it because it just confuses folks. It scares some people. Candid. Look. Yeah. What is it? I'm going to give you this headline. Brazil patients simultaneously infected with two Covad variants in new virus pathway. Got two different kinds of covert in the same person to different strains of the virus in one host. Well, What does that mean? Does that mean it could develop into four and then five. What does that mean? That's what's scary. They've identified at least two people who are infected with more than one strain of covert 19. At the same time. Well, the question is does the vaccine Tackle both of them, you know, and that's what we've gotta learn. By the way. Neither one of these two patients Had suffered the most severe symptoms of the virus. So now he's gotta monitor these two people and kick back and see what happens. Yes, I mean, but there is some worrying implications. Obviously there. Here's what one of the researchers said these co infections. Could generate combinations and generate new variants. Even more quickly than has been happening. It would be another evolutionary pathway for the virus, and we know Hey, listen. We knew all along the viruses. They change them, or they, you know the way use that example that our virologist gave us a virus is kind of like a winding two lane road, right? What you hope is is that your vaccine? Is a straight six lane road. That covers up the two lane if that makes sexy that covers them all. Yeah, yes, well, there's got to if this guy's got two strains in and doesn't would that create antibodies that they could use to make like a really super vaccine? And they working on that as well? They talked about that. Yeah. They say there are up to five different variants of the coronavirus that air circulating in in Brazil alone. Well, the And what's to stop it from developing into 10 variants and 15 of You know if it first remember, we we've heard about the one variant. Hmm. Now we're up to five, right? I mean, you have another way. We may have be up to 10 and we hear that the variants, arm or contagious. But we don't hear that they arm or deadly. That makes sense. Sure, and experts believe that the existing covert 19 vaccines will protect against the new variants. But they also say, but we need more research and we need more time. It's scary when you read that stuff, though, it's all new, and it's all it's all time consuming. You sit back and watch and its ever changing every day Traveling money, cook money. All right. This tournament. Maybe next time on WB 18. Maybe next time we'll get it next.
EU Reverses Move To Restrict Export Of COVID-19 Vaccines To Northern Ireland
"A mistake. That's how British Cabinet Minister Michael Gold is No describing the use sudden decision. To impose vaccine export controls of the Northern Irish border. The European Union quickly reverse that step after was loudly condemned as a violation. The key clause in the E U's Brexit deal with Britain, in other words, that there would be no hard border on the island of Ireland, but this crisis isn't over yet. Northern Ireland's First minister, Arlene Foster, Vehemently criticized the U. What's absolutely incredible act of hostility towards those of us in Northern Ireland. It was nothing to do with making sure that Northern Ireland was in a peaceful state and all to do with the European Union's vaccine, embarrassment and mismanagement. The prime minister and I need to act very quickly to do with the real trade flows that are being disrupted between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Arlene Foster with you more, but that vaccine makes management shortly. But Mrs Foster also called on the British government to abandon and replace the existing post Brexit protocol for Northern Ireland. Agreed with you up until now. We've been trying to deal with these issues on individual bases, but the protocol is unworkable. Let's be very clear about that, and we need to see it replaced. Because otherwise there is going to be real difficulties here in Northern Army, Alan Foster again with us get more details on this. Richard Morgan is the BBC's business report. Hurry Northen Ireland, he explained the background to this reaction. This Roy is really as a result of the European Union looking to trigger what is known as article 16, which is ah clause within the Brexit agreement, the Northern Ireland's protocol. That essentially change is hard up protocol works and what was going to happen here is that if article 16 had been triggered, it was to control the supply of vaccinations. Throw it the EU and there were real concerns essentially that vaccines arriving in the Republic of Ireland. Could basically get into great Britain using Northern Ireland as a backdoor because Northern Ireland is still part of the EU single market for goods and there would be no checks, but one article 16 would have done Is created a hard border on the island of Ireland when it comes to vaccines. The whole point of preventing that hard border was to protect the good Friday agreement and to protect the peace process on this island. So, of course, it has escalated as you mentioned beyond vaccines. With Arlene Foster, now, basically calling for replacement of the Northern Ireland Protocol. Is there any chance that that would happen? Well, I think unionists it's worth saying or absolutely furious. They view this as Brussels about to hit the nuclear option. They already here the Northern Ireland Protocol because it has essentially placed a border die in the Irish Sea, requiring goods arriving in Northern Ireland. From Great Britain to undergo some checks and processes to prevent those checks happening on the island of Ireland, where the border currently is, and I think, essentially unionist, they're saying, Well, look, what process was willing to do At the first sign of any trouble of any problems on this was to do with vaccines. What could happen down the line? I has this set a precedent and could we see Article 16 being triggered for anything on any concerns that arise on what uncertainty will this create for businesses and for Northern Ireland's economy Because we'd already bean been seeing pictures of empty shells and Northern Ireland Linds supermarkets, So this comes at a time where there already were growing trade issues. Yeah, Things haven't been smoothed over the last couple of weeks. As you say Supermarket shelves have bean empty. There have been issues around getting certain goods across the Irish Sea Jew to those new checks. We have retailers, well known high Street stores, who have simply stopped selling goods to Northern Ireland on the online retailer Amazon. It's currently drawing up a list of products that it will no longer offer to customers in Northern Ireland's and this is really concerned business on politicians, particularly unionist politicians, who have been calling on Boris Johnson, the British prime minister, and the U. K government. Trigger article 16 themselves in order to ease the supply chain issues on. Many are saying that if solutions aren't find that tree, a disruption is only going to get worse as we get further into this

You guys either one of you. Yeah. Yeah, uh, under new year's or solution to know Z. Yeah, So did you ever do like smart goals? Yeah, Is that Is that how you doing? All right? Yes. So I always have to remind the kids when they make goals, you know, make it specific. Make sure it's specific. Don't tell me you know, I want to get no better at I do that, and I haven't overarching, overarching goal. It's 5% sunflower. What does that have heard You say this before? Remind me what that is 5% sunflower with? No, it's sunflower. What is the sunflower purpose of sunflowers is is Just to be bright. Sunny positive on desperate the seeds of okay happiness. And then if I can grow that every year, 5% if I can, Okay, so I got it. So there I was gonna say, house I measurable I got it now. It's 5%. Alright, so you measure So so, yes. So sometimes you measure things by saying on a scale of 1 to 10. I like I like I'll do this. I'll go. Okay. So I break my life into different pieces. I go. Okay, So I have Uh, I have financial, uh, career it's gonna be one educational marriage, friendships, hobbies spiritually. Um You know, also break break my life in the lots of different pieces like that, And I'll be very specific. Okay, so I'm gonna go and rate myself on a scale of 1 to 10. How are my friendships? Well, everybody hates me. So that's maybe it's up to you know, I was my marriage. It's a It's a 10 out of time now, Santana 10 system My My wife's. Listen, I better say, Hey, she's gonna kill me When I get home. I got a good hotels, little look like Um s o, You know, how are spiritually you know, I well, you know, one of things I do every single years. I go through the daily audio Bible, which is, you know, front back. Old Testament. New Testament Psalms. Proverbs s. Oh, that's that's something I do every single year. Eyes an app on the iPhone s. Oh, maybe that that's nine or whatever. And then I'll go. Okay, so hobbies. You know, if you got a got a lot of hobbies, then you might be an eight or a nine on a scale of 1 to 10. If you don't have any hobbies when give yourself a two Eyes. Then you go. Okay. So what about financial? You know, I'm I'm broke, you know? So give yourself a two or I'm flush. I'm doing really well, give yourself a tent. Then you go. OK? What about career? Well, I'm retired. So in a well, don't put that on your don't have career in your list of things. So what I'll do is I do a bar graph. So I'll do a bar graph so each one of those things, hobbies will be a bar. And if it's a 10, it's maybe Five inches tall. That bar is five inches tall. And if it's a let's say that it's saying maybe it's hobbies are one or spiritualism. Other one and maybe let's spiritualists. It's too or something. I know what's gonna be a really low bar. So the each bar is going to be a different height. Based on how I read it. 1 to 10. Now, If you can picture these bars as you go from left to right, they're going to be different heights. If you're living life at five MPH this road of life that you have, Because imagine now these bars make up a road. Okay, moving from left to right. If your life is running at five MPH. You could probably go on this road and it's bumpy, but your car is going to handle it. But if you're trying to light run life at 100 MPH your car's going to fall apart because your life is so out of balance. So what happens is you take the areas that are low Three for you know the things that are not where you want them to be, And that's where you're going to focus your goals for the new year. The things that you want to see improved. So that's what I do is well, if you don't have it, if your hobbies area is this is a two out of 10. Well, you better take up a hobby, because as we've just seen, hobbies can really impact all the other areas, too. You know, they don't just impact one area. They affect everything. So that is typically what I'll do is and I look at that and go. Okay, so they're gonna be specific goals. They're gonna be measurable. It's gotta be attainable. Can't be. It can't be something that you can't do. You know, so that you that you can pull off and it's got to be realistic. And you know so is get a and r girl says Smart, specific, measurable, attainable, Realistic and T is time sensitive. So you said a time on when you are going to accomplish this thing by now, maybe that you're going to do it by the end of the year. If it's something that's that big, it's going to take you all year. Then I always recommend you break it up into pieces. You know, so take part of it and say, Well, you know, I want to, uh, have $20,000 set aside an emergency fund. You know our unless he was a nice nice number, like, you know, 12,000. Let's say 12,000 set aside an emergency fund and you got zero right now. See you go. Okay, So what can I do? I put 1000 side per month and you take it in the little faces, So you break it off, and each month you have a goal of 1000 each month. So that's typically what I like to do you know, is break up those goals. Do you do it any different? And you do typically think in terms of that, or do you have goals that you said or things that you want to achieve for the year? And how do you typically do break a month like that? No, don't break him up like that. I'll just have a goal that I work for. And I think that's fine. Because you know, they'll say that When you said something Not only do you work on the goal, but it works on you, right? You know, because I think about things all the time, and I have them in front of me like when I decided that I wanted to go get a master's degree. It's in. It's in front of me. I think about it all the time. Yeah, it's always good to have a target. Yeah. So you know that that to me is is important to think in terms of that. Now s O, you know, setting these types of things. That's what I typically will spend a lot of time doing is just getting real specific and then don't to choose too many because it becomes overwhelming. So last, let's do listen this take a quick break and come back right after this. I saw this article and I thought this is really, really interesting. Something to think about. And it is one of my goals. Going to tell you right off the top. It is something that I am thinking about right now, and I saw an article about it and I must share with you.

What we've learned about Barrett's views on abortion cases
"Judiciary Committee hearings in full swing this week. Arlene's outta wrote this report. For many feminists, it is the most painful, outrageous and sad irony that the Supreme Court seat once held by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the most staunch supporters of women's rights and civil rights, will soon be held by another woman. But one who seems to be the mirror opposite of R B, G and all her views the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings this week on the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the Supreme Court. But her views on full display despite the fact that she repeatedly refused to answer questions about her opinions, questions on such settled issues as the right to birth control and the right to vote, including a peaceful transition of power. As the result of that vote, all got I cannot comment answers. When asked about her view opposing same sex marriage, she offhandedly used the term sexual preference when referring to the LGBT plus community, even though many activists say the term is offensive. One after another Democratic senators tried to press her on her record, such as the fact that she previously signed onto an ad describing abortion as barbaric and calling for the Roe v. Wade decision to be overturned. Her two dissenting opinions and abortion related cases, one of which involved allowing minors to get an abortion without notifying parents by way of judicial bypass, and another that would have required fetal remains to be formally buried. Observers say 17 cases related to abortion are one step away from the Supreme Court and three including a 15 week abortion ban from Mississippi could be taken up as early as its next session. And her only nod to any progressive opinion. Barrett seemed to support the idea of desegregation by calling the Brown v. Board of education decision a super precedent that isn't likely to ever be overturned. The Judiciary Committee is set to vote to approve barrettes nomination next week with a vote of the full Senate by the end of the month. Bang. With the nomination of Amy Cockney Barrett to the U. S. Supreme Court. Questions about her ties to the religious right have raised concerns about the fate of Roe v. Wade and a person's right to reproductive choices. Her turn. Reporter Ellen La Luzerne spoke with Karen Garst, who author to anthologies about the impact of religion on women. Women beyond belief, and women versus religion. Last received her PhD in curriculum and instruction from UW Madison and is a current resident in the state of Oregon. 2016 you published a book Women Beyond belief. In the book's introduction, You stated that you wrote the book after learning of the 2014 U. S. Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby lobby's denial of reproductive care for their employees. Your reaction was to question why a corporation can use its religious beliefs. To dictate the healthcare a woman could receive. Fast forward to today when we're witnessing the Supreme Court nomination process for a woman who is a valid Lee, a member of an extremist religious sect that believes that women should submit to their husbands What was your reaction when you heard about the nomination of Amy Clooney Barrett for the U. S Supreme Court. First of all, I wasn't surprised because Trump has already appointed people to the Supreme Court. I didn't watch quite a bit of the confirmation hearings of his previous nominees, so I wasn't surprised that he appointed someone who's conservative. He vowed when he was elected that he would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe v. Wade. If Connie Bear is confirmed, What is your opinion about the impact that this might have for future cases such as the Affordable care act and a woman's right to choose? Well, I think it's going to have very dilatory ous impacts because now we're going to have a Supreme Court. That is considered very conservative. I believe six of the justices will be considered Catholic, and there are going to write decisions as they have for that have a conservative bent. I think it's very unfortunate that the Supreme Court has become so politicized. If we look in our history. One of the things that I was doing some research on was previous decisions and Brown vs the Board of Education. Which desegregated schools was fundamental change to the way this society was operating was a 9 to 0 decision, and people saw what was happening in society, and I talked to a friend of mine who is a lawyer there. Who said, you know, there's this public sentiment. That's how culture changes. And people were attuned to that, And now we're not appointing people to the Supreme Court who have an open view. They're very, very one sided, and I think it's totally tragic that she's going to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg. What do you think the consequences will be for Roe v. Wade and access to freedom of choice? An abortion? There will always be abortion. The question is whether it's going to be safe and whether it's going to be legal. There has been throughout time before Roe v. Wade. It was back alley abortions, and I think younger women today they don't know what it was like before then Roe v. Wade. If it were completely overturned, I think would have a revolution. It might take a while to put it together. Rather, I think what they'll do is just approved all these restrictions on it, making the doctors who on abortion clinics we associate with the hospital, whether it's making AA lot regulations on the clinic itself and what it can have and what it has to have delegating more. The authority of states and people are going to have to say I don't want to live in a state like this. If they overturn it completely and make abortion illegal. I just Hey, I'm ready to start the revolution. I don't think they're going to go that far. But who knows? What do you think, drives the women who are supporting people like Coney, Bharat and Support these types of efforts to keep women as subservient to men, such as the belief system of Annie Cockney Barrett. Religion is an indoctrination in a set of beliefs. I'm 70 when I was growing up in the fifties in Bismarck, North Dakota. Every person I knew went to a church or there were three Jewish families who went to a synagogue. But it was part of everybody's life. So you're indoctrinated in that It's your family. Everybody else around you is like that. Unless you're exposed to something different. This shapes who you are. And we know that Trump was elected by conservatives by people who identified as religion, particularly fundamentalist religion. That's too he appeals to, and it's unfortunate that the religion hasn't changed enough to deal with our society today. What is interesting to me? Is that this woman, Amy Cockney Barrett is very intelligent. She is ah, Notre Dame professor. She's an appellate court judge, and she has seven kids. I can't imagine trying to balance all that. But in spite of that conservative religion, it is pretty hard to say, Well, she's helped meat of her husband because she is Ted her own career. In your

Solving the mental load update
"When we first spoke about the mental load on this podcast, there was a fringe cartoon cold. You should've asked that was going viral. It explained the mental load with such clarity that when I first saw it, my reaction was fury. I wanted to. Shift to the ground. It showed a woman with a baby and a hapless male partner who was kind, but needed to be told how to help and it so familiar. So common. So exasperating and so profoundly unfair. Journalist, Tracey spicer new. What I was talking about. It was an absolute lightbulb moment for me, I sir, Clementine, Ford's facebook page. I share with everyone and I knew that went viral swear words and it happened in the time when I realized that my life with my wonderful husband who's fifty fifty with the housework fifty, fifty with the childcare, but it was just the little things. I'm always the one who organizes school holiday care or who takes the time to look after the kids or rangers everyone's Christmas presents or birthday present in his extended family and my extended family. So after reading that I, decided to go on strike in the household so he had to do it drove him Berserk. He said this is crazy. Such little school holiday cared Australia. I said now you know my pain. Jenny talk about the mental load in your life. I think when I saw the catching was like, oh, no added that to my mental learn. About. How often I think about the mental load? That's Jenny Leong amp in New South Wales Parliament I was very lucky and I consider it to be like that. My partner was able to access paid parental leave. So he was the primary care for a significant amount of time and in that case he did take the mental Lloyd and a lot of that was then there that the what's interesting is once we're both Both. Back at work where the default position falls back and the expectation of WHO's supposed to know those things to me. Then you feel like part of it is also all of my being bad feminist because of that because I think then adds another level to it to how much you should make a deal of this or not I noticed the gender dynamic with my. Friends that are in. Relationships, they're both men they quite comfortably into stereotypes, gender roles that old without all of the challenges and the. Doctor Leah. Repent on a lecturer in sociology at the University of, Melbourne. She racist as domestic labor, and this idea of the mental load is her field of expertise. I'm going to start and say a little bit controversial. Say That everyone actually carries the mental load. So some portion of your mental load may go to thinking about your career. Some portion of it may go to thinking about your family and some portion of it may be going to thinking about your personal life and the differences, the balance across men and women. So you could imagine men are spending a lot more of their mental load thinking about how do I advance my career thinking about the day to day challenges of work. That is a very different mental load than who is going to pick up the child from daycare. or WHO's GonNa Organize School holidays or who's doing the housework wise. House a mass. And one leads to economic outcome, career mobility and one is just unpaid sometimes recognized sometimes not recognized labor. And I think that's really the difference. How do we shift the ratio? Definitely does seat more with women the. Yeah, I, K-. So we're all in agreement about that. Absolutely. Absolutely, the balance in terms of unpaid in terms of thinking about the experience is disproportionately shouldered by women. Yes. Absolutely. Once, you get your head around the idea of the mental load. You start seeing it everywhere in the lives of your friends, colleagues, your mother, your self. It. Happens to women in all walks of life and age and six urology, but it seems to hit hardest when there's a baby. So. Now, we have a name for the mental load. But. The problem is naming, it doesn't make it go away. As I was sobbing thinking. I used to be able to manage employees teams. And now I'm too overwhelmed to even manage a grocery list. And more importantly. How did I become the default for every single child care and household tasks for my family? It wasn't supposed to happen to me. This is a road ski shades La, and she's written a book called Fairplay, which is all about fairly distributing the mental load aves marriage nearly ended when her husband center, it takes saying. I'm surprised you didn't get blueberries. She was furious at the assumption that she had gone from high powered lawyer to full-time Default Blueberry shepper. Eight. Knew she had to do something about it? She says, there are a few ways to look the mental load. My favorite was a term from nineteen eighty-seven and American sociologist named Arlene Kaplan. Daniels. coined a term called invisible work. In why like that term so much is because that's the only one that had a modicum of a solution in it. Because I kept thinking to myself. Maybe. Maybe if I can make. Visible all the invisible things I was doing from my home and family for my husband, Seth? Maybe then he would value what I did.

Some people are making bread in quarantine. Others are making TikToks
"The short video platform tiktok was already a big hit before the pandemic but since so many people have been stuck at home since march a lot. More people are discovering it and even though tiktok is in the news for its new. Ceo kevin meyer. Who was poached from disney and for record labels who think the service should pay more to publishers and artists for using their songs and for actual calls to ban it in the us over its chinese ownership and security and privacy fears. Well people like marketplace own. Hey super alvarado are finding that in quarantine. It's just kind of fun. More than three hundred million people downloaded tiktok in the first quarter of this year. That's fifty percent more than last quarter and total two billion downloads. Laura pearson a student at usc who happens to be my roommate started hearing huge buzz about tiktok ride before her spring break. Her friends were sending her lots of links sketches and dance videos. So she downloaded the out thinking. Yeah nice easy way to kill some quarantine time. It's like this cute little app. You can record videos. She started to spend more and more time on tiktok when she wasn't zooming into her classes soon enough. She started producing. She recruited arlene. Pereira are other roommate. She's of course also home from her teaching job at el camino college here in southern california. They chose zico's any song. So we spent the whole night trying to figure out how to do the dance and have a certain level of swag arse it out of the way in the living room wall. My roommate's discovered how much time it takes to perfect tiktok dance and that just gave me a whole new perspective on tiktok that you see these super silly videos but boy is it quite the production darlene. Then we all decided well. Let's do this. We invested in a really nice phone Tripod with a Cute Little Bluetooth control on Amazon. You can even find bundles. Called Tiktok kits including a ring light tripod and some other fancy stuff with prices ranging from forty five sixty and even up to ninety bucks. My first tries to sketches not amazing but still funny right now. Almost two thirds of tiktok users are under the age of thirty four. It's especially popular with eight hundred. Twenty four year olds. Yup that's us. Talent agents are getting in on the action managing famous tiktok trying to get work in Hollywood and connecting social media. Influencers already making big money. Laura is showing the TIKTOK universe for crocheting wizardry and as for our lean. She has a few dance.

Adam Greenwood and Dr. Arlene Astell discuss alleviating loneliness in care homes
"So we'll get started here The audience wants to know what we're talking about today so I'm going to give each of your chance to describe the product and say this is what we're doing. This is the advent of it and this is why it matters so adam go ahead started for us last year when I watched a tedtalk. Khuda what makes a good life by Robert Loading and he said a Hob- professor and he was talking about the Harvard Study of Adult Development I'm sure you guys are aware of it. Seventy five years seven hundred plus men and then about two thousand that children where they were looking at the work the hung life and the health people from lots of different socio economic backgrounds For for an unprecedented length of time and the. I suppose what the amazing results were that it wasn't about upbringing. It wasn't about health or money. It's good relationships. Good relationships keep us happier and healthier Social connections all good for us and ultimately loneliness kills and I was doing some research And I came across a piece by a UK charity Kool aid UK and they said that around half a million older people. So that's sixty five plus you can go as long as a week without speaking to another person We as an agency is digital digital agency have been looking at ways that we could use voice. Tech- Lots of different Scenarios over the last two years and this is something that I felt really stormy about And so we wanted to find out if we could use voice tech- to help to tackle the problem of loneliness. In order people excellent Arlene so my interest in this has come from working with older people and trying to get technology into their hands to make lives better The this many existing off the shelf devices and APPs we can download really have functions that can benefit people but often the pros has tried to connect people with the technology trying to find the people who will benefit has being challenging particularly came to us with some work. A few years ago is set to pay 'em a network of Ph D. students who are looking at Health and wellbeing in later life. And how technology could help and one of them was very interested to work with the the people who are really hard to reach people who are lonely. The people who are isolated who may be not having contact with services but sitting in their own homes with Shrinking social network shrinking an ability to to make contact to make new contacts. And how could we stop to to look at where they emerging technologies could could assist them and particularly things like Anything would make new social connections so I was up to see delighted to To be connected with with Adam and Greenwood Campbell when they wanted to start looking at putting boys technology to to tackle loneliness excellent. So what is the product do? And how do you deploy it? And what's been the response what we wanted to do with this study. First of all was just find out if the if the acts of talking to voice assistance would help in in tackling learning us so what we did is So we've been working with an organization called Abbey Failed. I'm here in the UK they They have a bow About four hundred retirement living homes around you can't about seven thousand residents so We all stem if we'd introduce Alexis Google assistance into some of the residents rooms so that we could start to do some qualities studies about the Their effects on loneliness. And that's that's when we start to work with Arlene to help us to try and understand initially how to gauge loneliness in order to people And then often the study we could find out if it made any Tackled it in any way

I mean we're sitting in Tilden Park on. Trail called seaview with a wonderful view of the bay. While flowers greenhills Gorgeous California. And why so many people on the trail today? Well it turns out that everyone has been ordered to stay home or go outdoors and everything's closed so there are a lot more people outdoors than usual. Which is a good thing and you walk every single day. Tell us about that routine and and how you got into it. Well I do pretty intense work and I work really hard because I have so many opportunities and I've discovered that if every day I take a walk with friends or colleagues or sometimes even the chemical industry executives with whom I do not see eye to eye. It's extremely good for my physical health. My mental health and my work. You have an incredible history of climbing of mountaineering. Have you always had a passion for climbing and mountaineering? How did that start? I was raised by incredibly cautious and conservative Orthodox Jewish grandparents in Chicago and was not allowed to do anything and I push push push to just be able to take swimming lessons and so I guess I started early with coming up with things I really wanted to do and then pushing to be able to do them. When I was a Grad student at Berkeley I heard about an expedition to Denali Mount McKinley. The Highest Mountain in North America. And I'd been climbing a lot with my friends from Reed College and had climbed higher than Denali in Peru and apply gone the trap and was told that women could go as far as base camp to help with the cooking. And when I called to say well I've climbed higher than Denali. They said. Yeah you were the only woman. You probably didn't do your share you know. Women really can't time high mountains. I wonder if a team of all women could climb high mountains and I found five other women and we went and kind to Nali ourselves. All women were the first all women's team and indeed not only. Did we climb it? But our leader had altitude sickness and became unconscious just below the summit and at that point. I was twenty five. I was the deputy leader because I'd organized and suddenly I was in charge of our Denali expedition with an unconscious person at twenty thousand feet and a big Arctic storm. Coming in and We actually made a stretcher dragged her down the mountain and it was really empowering to me. I mean I'd had a lot of negative messages in my childhood about what I couldn't couldn't do and I thought wow we got grace down from Denali Alive. We can do anything. We dream up so that was really inspiring for me to realize sick. We can all do things and we believe possible when we have to then. You just kept going though. That wasn't the end of your mountaineering. No I love being in the mountains. I love being outdoors. I love being here. I seem to like challenge. I was on a nineteen. Seventy six expedition climbed Everest. We were the second American expedition in those days. Hard to believe we have the whole mountain to ourselves and I climbed to nearly twenty five thousand feet and on the way back. I thought at that point all the world's highest mountains over eight thousand meters. That's kind of a magic height They all had been cleaned by men but no woman had ever climbed eight thousand meters and people were saying maybe women couldn't and I thought well we climbed. Denali got twenty four Everest. Let's give him a chance. So on my way back from I I applied for a permit for Anna Purna one and it was the first eight thousand meter peak ever climbed. It has the highest fatality rate. And it's now considered the hardest climb and we did not know that and so In nineteen seventy eight. I did organize an an all women's expedition and we were successful. We were the first women and indeed the first Americans to climb out of that reinforced my belief that we can all do seemingly impossible things and I'd say now is a good time for all of us to be doing seemingly impossible things because it's it's tough right now. Your experience shows me and the tough things that I've done in my life is that you can move past them that they're not insurmountable and even if they are to continue moving forward with with those challenges. I've never been above eight thousand meters. What what is it like? I mean the physicality of losing that oxygen. Do you get addicted to that. It feels like a very rarefied club of people that understand and know something that the rest of us don't well first of all it's the most beautiful place ever being above timberline with clouds on your feet the extreme beauty and peace and so it is so beautiful. But you know being here until the park is so beautiful to you. Don't have to be on top of Anna Perna and there's a huge amount of focus. You have a goal and you get a great team and everybody shares ICAL. But I'm always kind of looking for family and a climbing expedition is like a family but perhaps better family dynamics and some families have so you have a family of people all focused on a goal. And you're in a beautiful place using every bit of your physical energy but your mental energy problem solving. So it's it's super focused. Every since I became a mom didn't want to risk my life because if you know this but the chances of dying about one in ten climbing those mountains so it seriously dangerous so for me as a mom. I don't want to risk my life on the other hand what I'm doing now which is reducing harmful chemicals that are in our bodies and our products and our planet so it's got a very similar similar feeling of of getting a great team family of people who share a common goal and then persevering through avalanches and storms and Yetis. And what have you
Coronavirus Aid Package Is In Turmoil In The Senate
"What is the best way for? The United States to spend almost two trillion dollars are negotiating over. Exactly that question as they try to help the economy endure the hit. It's taking because of the krona virus. Pandemic Senate Republicans say they know what they want but then yesterday Senate Democrats blocked vote to proceed on a bill NPR. Susan Davis has been following. All of this morning sue. Taniwha would happen last night. Exactly well. It's important understand. It wasn't on an actual piece of legislation itself. That's still under negotiation. What Senate Majority Leader Mitch? Mcconnell was trying to do was fight the process in the Senate and those negotiations so they could get to a bill in the coming days. Democrats blocked it because they didn't like where the status of the underlying negotiations are as long as you have that leverage you can keep negotiating but that delaying tactic was really infuriating for Republicans. And this is Senate Majority Leader Mitch. Mcconnell on the Senate floor. After that failed. The American people are watching this festival. I'm told futures market is down five percent. I'm also told that. That's when trading stops so the notion that we have time to play games here with the American economy and the American people is utterly absurd. Mcconnell concern obviously when the markets open later this morning that they will look like a Washington isn't responding system fears there although Cinnamon Arlene Minority leader. Chuck Schumer said. He still believes they can have a deal. It's important to know. Negotiations continued early into the morning hours Secretary Treasury Steven Mnuchin up on the hill. Talking to Schumer and other Democrats so things are still moving. Yeah it seems like Democrats and Republicans would be equally worried about the economy given what we've seen in the markets over the last week so when it comes to this bill. Where does the difference of opinion lie? What are they disagree about? Important to know that they do agree. On the main structural parts of the bill in two of the main things are small. Business loans gloom guarantees and direct cash payments to Americans one of the big hold ups that first of all Democrats just want more. They want more money for unemployment benefits for workers. They want more money for hospitals and they want more a language in the bill. That would clarify how it's going to help corporations they they don't want to quote unquote bailout. The current draft would give the treasury secretary a ton of discretion on how to spend that money so they're essentially saying they need to know that the money that's going to go to corporations is going to go to the workers themselves And this is a sticking point. That's probably the main sticking point before they can get a deal and this is becoming more urgent sue because there are now some. Us senators who are self quarantining right. Yeah I mean the current viruses already come to Capitol Hill. There was already to house lawmakers who have said they tested positive for the virus. Senator Rand Paul. He's a Republican from Kentucky announced that he did two yesterday. There were already two. Republican senators in quarantine to additional senators have had to go into self quarantine because of contact with Senator Rand Paul. There's also you know that's a very clear public health concern on Capitol Hill where senators are still gathering. There's also just a legislative math reality that Mitch. Mcconnell now needs even more democratic votes to move forward with a piece of legislation because he's down five of his own people who are self quarantining quickly. They can't vote from afar. They can't there's no rules or infrastructure in the House and Senate to allow lawmakers to vote remotely and You would have to change the rules of both chambers arguably it might be unconstitutional. So it's not as simple as many people believe it would be vote remotely so interesting Assu. I guess the big question now is what happens next well. Negotiations are ongoing minority leader. Chuck Schumer spoke last night. He said that he was Had plans to meet with MNUCHIN. He said he was optimistic. They could announce a deal as early as this morning. However House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi says if they don't make any progress she's looking to put forward a bill of her own and if that happens that does mean that negotiations are going to drag on NPR congressional correspondent. Susan Davis Sue. Thanks so much for your reporting on this one you're welcome.
The evolving photography industry, with Arlene Evans
"Our topic as it will be how conferences and major photography magazines are changing in the industry. Now before we do that. I know you're an amateur photographer. So how did you get involved like this. Whole photography conferences in mm-hmm magazines? Well I was living in Los Angeles at the time which is where. WPI was headquartered in the mid. Two thousand cents and I was friends with the gentleman you know named Skip Cohen. He was he was president. WPI at the time and the director of WPI's left and he asked me if I would be interested in taking the position because he wanted someone on who wasn't really involved in the professional photography industry sort of a neutral party to come in with fresh eyes and little little. Did I know that fifteen years later I would still be in this industry but I said yes. So was you know. SKIP SKIP incredible judge of character. So that's a lot for you. Thank you know. And he always has a way of thinking outside the box and try to bring somebody in in a position. Bishen that you have that doesn't that's not a full-time professional photographer. I think speech volume. There's no ego involved old. You're looking at it with a fresh set of eyes. And I. I just think it's a great. I'm out of time. So congratulations for that. Well thank you very much I. Yeah that's great so let's talk about the events that are happening now. I'm you guys just announced a major bomb show. What was that? Yes we announced announced that the PDF brand was going to be retired. And with that was We were discontinuing the publication not not only magazine but range finder. As well you'll still have range finder the digital format. That's correct where we're we're going to be creating all the content now on range finder online dot COM We are actually in the process of redesigning the website to better. How's the information that we want to put on there now? We want to expand coverage we WANNA cover industry trends gear and not only what's happening in the wedding portrait world but other areas of photography as well so that we can better her serve our customers the photographers who have been very faithful to the range Finder magazine since the nineteen fifties. So that's a really exciting. You know it's funny because some people look at that as a negative. Oh my Lord. I can't believe this. PDF when they're no longer having print publication will think of all the major Magazines not just the photography world but outside of the photography world that are switching to digital. Just it makes sense. It's cheaper you can make changes to it immediately And we get things out to the public faster so I'm looking at this kind of a positive step. How do you as a content creator yourself? How does this? How does this affect you were were were you? How are you looking from your perspective? Well it it's going to be a big job because as you know putting putting out. A monthly magazine is very different than creating content on a daily basis. Where you're going to keep photographers will want to come? I'm there and learn the latest of what's going on in the photography industry and We really try to on top of that with both magazines. But now we were. It's GonNa be a fresh look. It's going to be fresh perspective we've discovered through surveys and you will know this as well younger photographers take in their information from social media or online whether it's youtube or the looking at facebook to see what other photographers they're doing the reading their news on CNN dot com. So we're just trying to be not cognizant of what our readers want and they want to get their information online hole that makes sense to pdf N.. What shift to different magazines yet? PD had range finder. That's what was the difference between the two well. PGN was focused more on commercial. Fine Art Photographers. It was a very different. There was Assam overlap but it was more Commercial photography whereas range finder started as a wedding republication then expanded into wedding portrait and as you know. Portrait now has really taken off a so many different genres whether it's boudoir pants. It's just not the typical family portrait anymore that you think they're just so many different areas in portraiture sure so range. Finder has also got along with those trends as well so it really was a different focus than PD N. Gotcha that makes sense. And then that's where you have the different groups which you have. WPI as a conference and then photo plus so you had WPI on the the west coast of the United States and then you have photo plus the east coast of the United States so did try do info plus on the west coast once a long time ago and they did at work so they is definitely the best place to have federal plus Gotcha Crepe I so without Canadian with that part of the publication gone. Where do you see the what you see that being integrated with range finder or other things? You're doing well. The content is not going to go away way What we're going to do is look at all the content we've had over the years from pgn and we're going to take what was meaningful meaningful from that and disperse it to the other side so whether it will live on photo plus dot com range finder online or WPI VPI that content will still be there as because it's still relevant and we WANNA make sure that people still have access to it? It's interesting you go back to twenty cornell for example you go back to some of his books he saying the same thing he said all all those years ago but he's saying the different and a fresher with a fresh voice and people are like. Wow I didn't know that in here thinking really. He's been talking about this. A how many years but but Tony has that way of taking the knowledge and disseminating it to a new generation as a a little bit. He's he's great at it and I think that there's something to be said for the teachers that have been around around for years and they have such an expanded knowledge base. And all they're doing is cultivating a new audience. The younger photographers is who may not necessarily have access to season photographers. Who have worked in the industry for years at know how to to apply these concepts and ideas that they're teaching? You can't get that necessarily from a youtube instructor. Who is going to talk about? Things is that they've only had experience with for two or three years.
