"You know, it's very simplified for children, but it's a, but they both have the same personalities that they have in life. How do you land on this dog breed in the first place toxins? Why wiener dogs? Oh my, our family is always had them. Grandparents, great grandparents, grandparents, parents, uncles. I love it. Just like Scottish people always get scotties and things like that. When you were growing up, did your dachshunds get into a lot of trouble when you guys would leave the house? Oh, yes, frequently. Emptying out the garbage onto the floor, getting I remember once the two dogs I got a ham off the counter and the entire ham and they were so sick. Oh my God. I'm imagining you cleaning up after them during walks for days and days. You know when I was flipping through this book, some of the drawings they look. They look so realistic, like there's this spread here of them sort of running around the lawn, watering, watering, and quotes. The flowers, playing by the pool. Did you start with photographs and sort of tweak the photographs and made them illustrations or how do they look so realistic? I made a whole model of the backyard. Using artificial plants and the fancy running around the back is actually sushi mats. Oh my God. Really? I thought it would be fun to juxtapose the drawings with realistic stuff and try and get away with it. Yeah, it looks really cool. What do you want people to be left with as families gather to flip through the beautiful pages of this book? What thoughts do you want them to be having in their brains as they learn about Ike and Perry? I think just to enjoy them. There's no message in the book. Except that their friends in the end they done something together and it's gotten them over their fighting. Not much more than that. Just meant to be fun. You know, also this book, because we're returning to work these days, or a lot of people are including myself. This book made me think that maybe I need to get a partner in crime for my dog Mickey. Because I do think he's going to be a lot lonelier these days. As I'm gone. Well, they will. I've read about that that suddenly everybody's gone again. The parents and the kids are all gone again. They're out of the house. Yeah, exactly. But then I was thinking after reading your book and looking at all the funny illustrations of all these antics that augie and Perry get into, I'm thinking, man, if I do get a buddy for Mickey, well, I go back to work. This book is warning me, what could happen in my absence? Don't worry, they're not that clever. Ian falconer's new book is called two dogs. Thank you so

There are so many different services, no matter what businesses you're doing, there are companies and people out there that are willing to help you out so you don't have to be a one man show, be a one team show. You don't have a team, create one. Fire nation, listen. We all have to start somewhere. Nothing is wrong, or there's no shame in being that one man and one woman show when you start. You got a bootstrap. You got to make things happen, but you've got to invest in yourself. As you started to get traction, investing yourself, invest in a team. So you can outsource things that you shouldn't be doing so you can do what you do best. That's what the team does. It allows you to focus on what you do best fire nation. My team allows me to focus on this. The interview process. They do everything else so that I can focus on stuff like this. That's the power of the team. Now, augie, we've all heard the phrase. Don't give a man a fish. Teach the man to fish. And he'll be able to feed himself for life. But you have a kind of a different saying a little bit. You say, hey, listen, everybody is teaching other people how to fish. Do you know which kind of fish you're allergic to? What the heck do you mean by that? Well, I have a friend. She can eat seafood. But she's allergic to cheap seafood. For some reason, I don't know why. She can eat lobster, she can eat crab, but you can't eat regular fish or regular shrimp. I don't understand why. So that got me thinking about this. Everybody's teaching us how to fish.

I mean, you just have everybody selling something online because that's the world that we live in today. How can you still thrive in this crowded market of online selling? That is a question that I get asked quite a bit. I mentioned earlier, wholesaler could be your next step, but don't let that hinder you from starting your own online business. I'm an advocate for people starting their own businesses. You can still thrive when you separate yourself. Unfortunately, a lot of people who are getting into the business or the game of selling online, they are bombarded by this idea of passive income of all you

He said oh happy. Dinosaur smiled the grass. We can wait together. It will be nice to have someone to wait with. Dougie grinned. Grass was right and so the two new friends waited till the south. Dark clouds were forming in the sky. But coming dark still. By the moment the clouds were heavy and low and began to rotate into a spout that stretched reaching downwards to touch the ground. The spinning spout became a roaring twirling column of air. The grew wider and wider until it was a raging tornado. Streaking across the grassland here comes said the grass. he's very big said aggie. Yes agreed grass. Is he dangerous. Ask doggy. I suppose so. Replied grass no more dangerous than swimming down a river or or floating through the air to crash to the earth. Tornado is fun to watch.

"And i think people don't understand what easy meat so you need some metric to that whether it's pace heart rate or very experienced athletes can do it based on perceived exertion experienced to do that. Yeah yeah so. And then. Liz talk a little bit about a true rest. Stay versus taking like a half hour walk or a yoga class. Do you feel. Sometimes people are not doing recovery or rest or their body justice by not taking a day of just no physical exertion. I think it really depends on the person you know. I think that when you look at something like yoga or a gentle walk with your friend. Those are all what. I would consider restorative activities. So they work on a part of your nervous system. That's going to bring everything down as long as you personally find them relaxing. Now i'm not saying go for a ten mile with your friend on a really aggressive trail or go into hot yoga for ninety minutes. That had a stressful. But if we're doing like a flow yoga very gentle or just you know you're walking your dog with your friend around the neighborhood. That kind of stuff is okay. It's just when when it's it's stressful. You know you really do need rest in order to gain fitness and you know for some people that does mean a true rest day but i get it. We all kind of have this each to move. Just be sure that you're moving. Isn't adding more stress. Excellent excellent I'm glad to hear that. My friday morning walks with augie are sanctioned so my french bulldog.

Is LSU Handling the Sexual Assault Investigation Well?
"When you when you talk to commissioner it would be interesting if you could just asking if one is he keeping an eye on what's going on in the lsu athletic department and is this something that his office would possibly make a comment on or or or possibly take action on down the line of you'll probably not want to answer that. But i think it would i. I can't speak for him. But i would say that the monitors everything that goes on in the conference especially something like this and it's a shame that you have to have outsider dolts supervisions because at this point. I don't have a warm feeling. That hugh is the -sarily handling this well in. I know you're a big fan of scott woodward but would you not agree. That scott is now on the clock without a doubt. But i will also say this This is not an athletic department problem anymore. This is an institutional issue. Absolutely but it has fallen squaring into scott lap. Because verge ause berry and miriam ziegler person both work for him under his department correct and if he does anything less than fire them i don't think his reputations can overcome this. I know it will be the only thing. I don't know and i'm not. I'm not blindly defending him. Because i haven't spoken to him but i wonder in in light of how this decision in light of the investigation which is clearly in the interim president's hands how the decision was reached for the punishment of these two individuals who made that decision. And that's why at this point you can't come out and condemn woodward and you know crucify right. Is it. i don't think he's actually taken a position. And honestly i would fall on the floor to survived and it was at the behest of scott woodward i i just don't see him as the kind of person moral being to to let that happen. I mean best. It's a dereliction of duty of what those two did at worst it's enabling female abuse because of what they did so pick your point. Ask you a question Someone who lives down there and understands the law. Why do you think the suspension was given in the in the manner. Why why do you think they determine twenty one and thirty days you know. I don't know. And i don't know if there any state employment laws that say if you go past thirty as they have. Some civil service appeal right. No i can't say that Maybe thirty days in a month is just a good round figure who knows twenty one days three weeks. That's the best i can come up with. Not being an expert in louisiana labor law and then who knows what other things they may allege. They may alleged that you know a female minority. You didn't do this to the other folks so we're being discriminated against. They'll get an eeo complain out of the thing who knows. I really don't know. But i think there's a point where as even as a prosecutor if you're cases week but you think well you know a reasonable jury should convict these people leave it up to the jury to make the call and if they make the call then society has spoken and in this case. I think there's just massive outrage that these still have their jobs now. It's a shame that they're the only to post your children left but less miles can't be fired because he was already fired. Joe livas gone and we don't know if he really might be here. On all of this alexander king is gone the lsu supervisors. That's always been a cesspool in louisiana always been assessed pool and i mean at this point. I'm looking around for the moral voice. The moral compass of lsu. And i think you should ask the l. brown to come on and to at least make us feel good about lsu and that they're decent people in baton rouge and and i wanna say angela's done a great job with this recording. I know he's been covering lsu for years and and this obviously just he. He wasn't aware of it was covered up pretty good. Because i think it would have been something rabble would have picked up can see they were great links. Gone to within the lsu athletic department to cover this up. And i think if you had victoria jackson back on your show. She'd have a lot to say about this. Don't you think paul. Maybe we should have her back. I think so. I think she would at least provide some interesting commentary about this and it not just how it applies at lsu. But we didn't know this was going on. At least the fans didn't now of course people in the administration did and that's why we have a scandal today. 'cause didn't handle it properly but you know what's going on at a lot of other schools just intuitively. I would really like to know I would like to know. F king alexander's role in all this. Because he certainly was high and mighty in ripping the sec for playing football while he will oregon state and pac twelve or not and he was also if i remember correctly augie hugging on less miles after they beat texas. Am and clearly. The reason why joe alita had to back down on firing last miles in two thousand fifteen yeah and mossel opinion of joe alita has changed and it just shows you how those of us who are really not in the no. We're really ignorant relying on the media to give us the facts and in this case joe coming out history has proven him to be The good guy in all of this but the other one that i'm sure sitting back just watching it and keeping a low profile and it's glad that people are not talking about last football season. Is it all right and as much as you can say about it. He not at this point any scandals. Lsu and i'll take that any day over with less has given
Who Needs the Europa League Title Most?
"Here's your to win. The europa league manchester united installed his early favorites. Actually co-favorites with spurs english teams. One two three even arsenal getting a better odds to in the euro league van c milan. Let's focus in on those three english clubs specifically their managers. Craig i'll start with you. Which is three need to win the europa league. Most i suppose seventy one hundred in milan because the book is going through. That could be the only reason i passed. Thank josiah marines. When there's the most. Because i think he's the mine under most pressure. His league possession at moment stinks the team's performances have been pretty rotten in terms of on the eye on the country mile off the top four. At one point the talk was others team in the title race and so he needs to deliver something otherwise. He's under severe pressure. I mean you could say well attack. The does he's got cut behind them transition to ask no. I think he's pretty safe there and they talk for. There's no doubt about so. I actually think marinas the mon- needs it. The most stevie you agree they still got a shot at hardware in the league cup final. They got a shot at top six. Maybe an outside shot at top four spurs really. Need this most absolutely think so. Yeah arsenal. yeah we think point lead over you. He's he's got an f. e. cop behind them less than two months ago so he's fine creek said during transition marino. Another honda is is is not in my opinion going to be in the top four. That's why he was brought and it wasn't brought in to do anything else so it's important that he does produced. So we're because that will deflect away from what has jaw was and the premier league and unfortunately for him yes. He's a the problem is they'll position gsa city who nobody wants to face. So i'm one hundred percent we create. This is absolutely marino. And tom mark from the manchester united perspective. Just how important is this to jar. His record and cup. Tournaments is well documented over four in finals. Big without first trophy be. I think it needs to win one soon. Because it's now four years when united trophy on a long time and they always have the opportunity in the kaaba cup of one. One that need is more than tottenham because five years at the champions league. The asked really really the champions football. I it's sick of being semi-finalists are knocking on the door. They're not gonna win the primarily this season to trophies. This is man united. We're talking about. We're talking about the process itself alongside by munich real madrid barcelona as one of the biggest club in the world. The biggest clubs in the world win trophies and is now four years since one. United one one-stroke trophy with the minor the minor cops. Let's be honest. The league company europa league in two thousand seventeen. They haven't won a big trophy since whilst explosion retired. Let's be honest. The two thousand thirteen primarily because even fa co-ops and the von hall didn't really count towards the biggest trophy so united. Need over the start winning again. And i think social really needs it but if he doesn't win a trophy this season i don't think it'll be the end of their old firm. I think you'll still be there. But i do think the to kick on become this team is going to challenge for the majors. They have to win something. So craig no no i just think off the bucket marks point that yet yeah financially obstacle. But we're talking about modules marina for the reasons that steve and i say and and say well and it's a big f because it's not you know some good teams in there. They say it was a year in the league and we lost hurricane and we will see all these excuses. You'll save won the europa league a nuts champions league football because that's the carrot dangled for when the euro league note from a united perspective. As augie said you know when you're polite for them and their historical standpoint is neither here in the last good marino himself. He delivered second-place mandated. Emily he delivered the gop league undesirable cup. So they've done recently. They really need to be the primarily title at least go neck and neck all the way until publiz reasons you take a trophy as a manager and you would take if you united but really the dining a much.

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report
"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia. So will the conferences counterparts here, But often he's teaching him about this issue that he spoke with him last week. They did a readout. I don't think I have anything more about their call from today's White House briefing. We should Point out during a September 2019 interview with CBS is Norah O'Donnell for 60 Minutes. Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report, concluding that the Saudi Crown prince did approve of the 2018 killing of

"For me imaginative has always been a place to share stories through video audio, digital interactive, and also through exhibitions and visual arts because I, think there's really a quite a unique way that indigenous artists are telling stories and we are really just showcasing the multitude of these artists and all of the voices however nuance they are from many different nations.

Welcome to the show learn and congratulations. Thank you very much and congratulations to you fail, and now for listeners we should mention we do know each other we've been on stage together. I think I think only the one time I think the one time but. Incredible actor right, and human beings so Lucky. Company I feel like I'm getting an award right now. So this award the the argue award since affectionately known, it's been given to performers Michael Gray is like Michelle thrush like ten Sukarno. So, how do you feel about taking home the award this year it's a great great honor I knew Avi I've got to work with. A few times and left an indelible mark in my life and he he was one of my mentors. So is lucky to call him a friend mentor. He's He's pretty special human being yeah. I had the chance to work with him a little bit and he was he was quite a force who's quite a force. So I imagine again, you know this, this award is very personal because as you mentioned, he was a mentor and a friend to you. And you guys did work on a number of projects together. You know some of your earliest work was alongside Augie. But for people who might not know who he was, who was he too you? Well, he was a prolific stage actor. He's one of the first classically trained theater native theater actors in Canada. So you know he's he set the bar high right off the bat he went to National Theatre School, and then he moved onto Stratford as well, which is incredible place to be. And in nineteen sixty, four, him being the first native person to be on that stage is is pretty incredible. And Role in the George Regas. Ecstasy of the Joe. When he played the young fireball Jamie Paul which I think every almost every native actor has done that play in one shape or another. Always been, you know setting the bar quite high. One of the films that you start in alongside Augie was to come see the last warrior and the movie is the story of the Shawnee leader and you played his brother loud noise, which is a you know he's a pretty iconic person in history, but also a really meaty role to play. So let's take a listen to the scene where your character loud noise believes he is dying. To search die. Was More hotton inside. Slave lies in. Lust. You're in ski. Misery is not their fault. Zone. Cropped. Can Spirit Foster own spiritual ways. Voice. I was. Be My message. Woke store. That was a little bit from the film to come see the last warrior. So the film came out in Nineteen ninety-five and our guest today learn cardinale starred in it. So, what's it like to listen back to old clips like that Lord I, wonder who that flute player was. Awesome Yeah, it's interesting. Always hearing it going Oh, I could have done or I should have done but. I remember that scene because it was one of the funders scenes to do in the whole in the whole movie. But I. I was Kinda Green when I when I did that role. So you know I always going full out every time. And Way. We shot that particular scene is that we started on the people above me. My brother and sister, and so I was off camera giving them the lines and I went out every single time for that for them off camera, and then she turns to me and she goes. You might want to save some of that for yourself. Oh Yeah I. Guess she goes. Yeah. I. I appreciate it but I don't need all that. I made her cry, which was my thing I just wanted to order. So she could get to the emotion that she needed and she was crying and stuff every time we did it
When the Business World Shifts Gear, Use It to Accelerate Your Business with Agie Sihotang
"Augie say what's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know fire nation I hope all of your healthy. Most people don't know about me most people don't know that I'm not a big fan of sweets I don't really eat dessert but if you come to the negotiation table with Fried Bananas Boba Drink, you will definitely out negotiate me Oh brother come down to Puerto Rico I will bring some fungal which are fried planes and you're GONNA be in heaven and everybody's GonNa win. I will lose for sure. So, fire nation has shared the we're talking about when the business world, the shift gear, which of course, it has, we need to accelerate our business and we're going to use this shift to do just that. Now let's just be honest covid nineteen. Was Cry and it is Cray Cray. So if our e commerce business was hurt because of this pandemic, what can we do? You are absolutely correct a lot of people were hurt by it are still hurting by well as the title says, shift gear adapt to the surrounding s an example a lot of Amazon. Sellers were affected in March in mid March because Amazon. Announced that it was limiting the fulfillment by Amazon or the FBI shipment meaning you can't send most of your products Amazon warehouse to store and to have itself. Through the FBI program as a customer, you might have noticed just delays in your products being delivered to your house, but as third party sellers, the couple or the few weeks that restriction created so much damage because people rely on the system. So it was a nightmare for most people they had to lay off some people they had to close them some of their categories or businesses or products that they're selling I, feel bad for them. But what I found, some creative entrepreneurs started to do the fulfillment of the sales themselves. They might have to store the products and their house or even their apartment. Some even started to look for a third party fulfillment company, which is pretty simple. By the way all you gotta do is Google Third Party fulfillment company in Los Angeles or New York wherever they might be and they will be able to fulfil your sales like an Amazon warehouse would be some even started to look into other platforms to sell it. So when the business world shifts gear, they used it to accelerate their business. Now, this this is when as a business owner business leader as an entrepreneur, you wanna have a fluid model in your business. Like water water always adopts to its vessel right so no matter how weird looking the vessel is water will always adapt to it. I understand that a lot of ECOMMERCE businesses are on survival mode right now. But don't be discourage. In your line of Business or category, there are gaps in the marketplace. There are problems in the marketplace that have never been faced before and you can adapt to them and fill the gap. You just have to look and ask everyone you're in business with to see what kind of gap you can fill and use it to accelerate your business. I believe instead of being an online seller jail d you need to be an online solver people have problems, people have problems, businesses have problems, some that they've never ever faced before. We're all new to this. We've never experienced anything like this unless maybe you you were alive hundreds of years ago, but I doubt it. So once you are creative once you become creative and listen to your surroundings, you'll be able to take that inner problem solving drive that most of us wrote in our first resume fire nation. If you are able to provide the best solution to your customers biggest problem, you're going to win a period. It doesn't matter the time it doesn't matter what's going on in this world you will. Win and I love how you put this Augie adapt or die. I mean I'm GonNa get old dramatic air adapt or die. But the good news is fire nation were human beings. We've been adapting for seventy thousand plus years and we're GONNA continue to do so and this those e commerce business owners the do adapt they can adapt that are not just going to survive, but they're going to thrive in this new world that we live in, and now I love the phrase Augie your network is your net worth. How can We properly use our network to provide solutions for our customers. I am an absolute believer in that I absolutely believe that we need to use our network at least to do three things. Number one is to generate revenue. If ten people know what you do right now and you create the amount of business that you're generating right now, multiply it most businesses, not all the most are a numbers game the more seat you throw out there the more trees you can expect to grow proper watering is needed I get that number's game. Number to create opportunities I mentioned earlier that everyone has a problem be a problem solver. If you're an online seller, you are shy in talking to people well, be a problem solver be an online problem-solver. You can still do that the more variety half a your network, the more you can build something.

"My God. This was such a great idea. Oh my God this is great perfect match made in heaven it was like stepbrothers to become best friends. You off a so literally look at him like a girl girl when she is at a wedding. I'm just like why are you wearing that dress kidding. Wearing say say like I love my friends and I love you girl so you and you just you always come through for me. Just the best sale L.. So blue runners no longer in the future the concept of tales from the bar side because yes like like this. This is one of the ones that was near and dear to my heart because I was a bartender back in the day and I've always said if I could just figure out how to make bartending what I made though to make an. It Eh exactly without question. But that's changing like it's like it's become a it is you can use it as a career now you can become career bartender and do very well but you have to find the right spot. You have to find the right niche and you have to be happy where you're working because I've been doing for fifteen years and you get burned out at place. You get burned out with people that you work with burned out by. Managers burned out by owners died. laggers entitled regulars everybody but the the main thing is like you make good cash all the time and it's cash and so that means you can pay a bill any day of the week if you're working then it's a r-really sweet thing to be able to do so but is that true across the board no because there's some bars that sock and you can't make good money right and I've tried them and I've worked here in of work but they're not worked everywhere in between and so the secret to being good bartender to being a happy. Bartender is to find a place where you're making good box. Twenty to thirty bucks an hour right. I mean that's that's fair money. That's straight wage. That's what Detroit is finally become bartender hundred eight anybody from the. IRS is listening. He's only making fifteen dollars. Though by far among the bars are on the books now they have to be. Because here's the thing you can claim minimal tips but go to buy a house go by car get credit because you have to tell them what you're making and you have to pay your taxes on it so I'm curious if you guys have the same philosophy about this that I do like one of the things I hated hated did mixologist. S- well I mean well. Well that's gotten to a dying breed. I make money in a diaper. I buy right onto their tell you. The Messenger focused on ten percent of being a bartender. uh-huh yeah because in reality like ten percent of being a bartender is actually making drink. Some of the bars had those ingredients. You know. I'm not even about ten percent of the bartender able to whip up a long island kind of being a bartender is being able to read the people as a bars now have conversations the the borrow that's NB that reason. I do it that way at the bar so for me personally when I worked out in Arbor it was a nightclub and that setting is kind of like you come to your bar. You get what you get and then you or of tournament that you get the heck away from boroughs are. I'm so sorry you get the heck away from my phone and it's just get it. Get your drinking go and then later on I went onto a different Barney. Arne became the general manager of a it was a nightclub but they also were opened throughout the week and one of the things that we were really trying to push on to people is. We don't care if it was about to be closing time. You do not clean until everyone is out because you had to spend time talking to your people. I don't WANNA see people cleaning. I WanNa see people interacting a good time engaging with people making An actual like you know not a spectacle out of yourself but being intriguing to people and talk said like I've always said like I think everybody should should be forced to be a bartender way on something six months at a minimum because to me. That was the best. It guy like dude in my inter- Sheldon game is strong. Like I can nerd out and hide in the corner like nobody's business for sure but like being a bartender. I can't at all but but so like but when I'm depressed I go to a but you the most people in the world but I can go but do you think about me now. I wouldn't know being a bartender. Where you you find your Legos? Being a bartender was part of that for me. We're like it teaches you how to read people teaches you. Does that angry guy at the end of the Mar just need to be left after the athlon or does he need someone to talk to. You have to the girl. That's crying tears. Are they. Crying Vodka Soda. Can I get that every week to talk to the thing about bartenders. You have to be mixologist. You have to be a comedian you have to shrink. You have to be a manager you have to be. He a bunch of different jobs and interchange them really quickly and the best bartenders can do that. And there's you know it's it's tender genders term and those bartenders. No longer have to live in a house with seven or the people you shouldn't have they can now. That's a skill trade by tale but okay but before it was like Vegas Miami Cargo Elway. That was the only place where you could buy a house and be a bartender and and have a family and it was a legitimate Detroit. It's finally has at seen kind of Nazi in that profession. I know a guy that's part owner of a very successful festival bar downtown and he's still Barton's on Friday and Saturday you do have to. Actually I've only got to make their money back in seventeen grand as the owner You know making more than that. I'm sure but I don't know how much because guys are growing manager of a couple of bars I still had to work work Barsha and make but I also joined. It is still engineers purpose my favorite example apple that behind the bar love. That's what they do they want. That's what their social life. They love it so really what I need to do is go to Hamtramck and buy some Piece of junk property and turn it into renting. You're telling me there's no piece of junk properties in Hamtramck on the city clerk. They're all God's city clerk. I guess I'm not talking to you tomorrow. It just waiting for a liquor license plate. Good luck getting one in Ferndale or in Royal Oak. And that's one of the things I do like just I. It's one of the things I love about him. Traffic is that there are so many great little places to honestly hamtramck reminds me a lot of Boston. Uh but like obviously much more concentrated because like every lawson is what a fifteenth the size of the choice. I mean you could fit like twelve Boston's Austin inside the Detroit. Small went to Bumba for the first time on your recommendation. Yes did you love it. They had no idea who you were by the way that's not true. Oh Oh Jeez. I said I'M OUTTA here I. I asked if t and Brian the owners. They're usually usually behind the bar. Oh No I don't know if they were owners but Sheila Sheila Sheila that night it was a great cocktail bar and it is fantastic dollars. Yeah for actual good cocktail. It's already been there. No no no no we serve hardier jumbos. Jumbos is not a cocktail bar. That's like whiskey. That is a highlife in a shot. Otherwise we're going. Yeah we don't even have an orange here. I don't know what you want. What are you talking about? Jumbos is a great great guy. We talked about this on our last. podcast we did dive bar. podcasts on tales from the bar side and everybody misses the comet summit. Barman the Komo is just bomb lurs and stools rom or are they all the Damn Ball. They bought a acid left the logo on the their they have fully that's warms the tiny little caucus of my cold. What's what's left? What's left that you were saying that people have to do Craft cut tailing and I work at nightclubs. And I do not have to do any of that. I do know how to do it because I actually have a passion for bartending and I like to learn how to do those things but at all the places I work at currently currently we do not have to do like Manhattan's or old fashioned water that lake so honestly it's one of those things where I think some of it comes down to do people being informed before they go somewhere like sorry like 'cause I've seen it both ways I've seen people go to dive bars and be pissed off. Here is amazing beautiful. Yeah Vodka cranberry or you. Can't go to sugarhouse dude if you're going to sugar house or even waiting ten to fifteen minutes because takes says in ruffled shirt and the arm band and that's why you're not allowed to stand up there. You have to have a seat because it's about crowd control and time it'd make you train. Here's here's here's my right main point about bars in the whole area and I've worked at a million of them and so many of them are run wrong figure Out what you do and do it. Well sugarhouse perfect example. This is what we are. We're not going to vacate that. We're going to leave that. This is what we do and we kill it and that's awesome. This is what we do in kill it. I have never met a bartender who said his bar was run right now tonight. Martin listen thirteen years. Will I will say about one place ever worked at and that was neck. Donate Club outmanned are. We actually had an amazing staff. As far as bartenders barbeques and management went where they also listen. I I will say that they like serious in Arbor next. I'm not trying to plug neck though. Like whatever but the thing is like in reality they actually did do an amazing job at making sure their staff was they were all they knew when we said that we needed something they would change that immediately and like. I don't think I've ever worked as especially in college. I used to go to that. Don't want us to teenage honesty. Like the the general manager. They're better they. They are amazing when it comes to making sure that their staff is well-equipped well equipped to perform their jobs and especially when it comes to like Security and everything to like. There's no question if I said. Hey I want the sky. They don't question me whatsoever. They get them out of there and they ask questions later and didn't like well oiled machine is waiting. If you'RE GONNA open up a bar and you know that that's the thing if you're gonNa if you're so if you're a bar owner and you're going to open up a place hire people who have worked in the industry for a long time surround surround yourself with them because they'll show you how to run it. The right way I was GonNa say zone highlands just open the top of the Renton. I went up there for a media preview and my friend. I'm jake was there. He's been a bartender in the Detroit area for years and I was like. Oh Hey I know you. Yeah so I know what to expect from people. Yeah exactly. That's smart and even tonight on our podcast asked. We were talking about consistency and making sure that your drinks are consistent every single time. That I can't stand a wet bar like drinks are going to spill the slashing going on but when the bartender does it off the Rep when your your servants so many drinks and so fast that you're slashing the liquid out of the glass asa onto the bar and then there's credit card slips and they're getting soaked. I hate that. It's not that hard to fill up a drink. The correct way and leave a quarter inch at the top and pass it to the customer without slashing. It doesn't you're not saving. It really depends on where you're strong island talked about that too. And that's like my thing ever went strong island out jobs to long okay garbage person exactly and to me like when somebody says. Can you make it really strong or can you give me a stronger. Double while simulated Weiss. He's you're insinuating that I don't know how to make a proper drink and I. I don't like that.

"augie" Discussed on Lives of the Mind
"Me a chance to work in logistics company. I enjoyed that a great company. Really we do have a lot of core values that are important and impressive. But I was living in New Jersey which I didn't love and my opportunities during the State Department was is time limited so I had the chance to work for Johnson Johnson. Try it out for a year and then I decided you know if I don't try the State Department always wonder and and I actually went to my boss my director at the time and said I'm I think I'm going to submit my resignation so I can take this opportunity to join the State Department and and she said if you don't resign and take that opportunity. I'm going to fire you and I was like. Oh she's like because you'll always wonder what would happen. What if if you don't don't do it? She's like and we'll always be here. You can always come back. We'd be happy to have you but you need to follow your dreams that you've had and see what happens and so yeah. It was a good a good lesson ascend from her to know number one that there are opportunities that you can go back to especially if you've left on the right path or with the right reason but yeah that was fifteen years ago and I have enjoyed most of my time since then no job is perfect. Of course. So where was your job offer with the State Department. During that time you worked at Johnston Anita reapply now. So actually it takes quite a bit of time from when you get your initial offer to when you can actually start working for for some people. It can take years because you have to actually do your security clearance and your medical clearance and those things and once you've lived overseas that clearance process takes quite a bit of time so I had lived overseas in Japan had also traveled a lot in Asia while I was living in Japan and then I had also lived in Ireland with the private sector so it took a a long time for my clearance to come through and then when it did come through at the time you had eighteen months to stay on the list and essentially you were on the list in rank order based on the score that you had and so I didn't know where I was on the list necessarily but at any point in time they would be calling calling for orientation classes and they would take the people in the rank order on the list and so when I did finally decide that it was time for me to try the State Department I called and they were able to fit me me into one of the next orientation classes it was also a time when we were hiring people quickly. There were a lot of a lot of shortfalls in staff from the late nineties when they weren't doing any hiring and they weren't even filling to attrition and so they were looking to not only fill those back fills but also to ramp up staff as we were looking at needing in larger staff numbers in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and other places that were more strategic so in case listeners. Don't know what is the mission mission of the State Department with us. Embassies and what do people go to embassies. Four wide is the. US need people to work in embassies in these different countries so the mission of the State Department is to advance US interests around the world and we do that in a lot of different ways. The the ways that most people would interact with an embassy when they're overseas sees is if they lose their passport or have any issues when they're overseas so the embassy is to provide a support network for Americans who are traveling in your living overseas. So that's one of the main missions. A lot of non Americans know the embassy because it's the place they come to get visas to come to the United States for work work travel. Study business reasons and so so that's a core mission that's the consular mission on what the work that I do. Right now is in the economic mission so the economic mission and my team specifically is to look at what are the industries of the future and how does the US collaborate with Japan on those was industries of the future in order to ensure that our shared values and are like minded interests are advanced around the world so for example. My team works on things like I five G. and cybersecurity space exploration Indo Pacific development. So how do the. US Japan collaborate in third countries in the Indo Pacific Nick to help develop infrastructure that will help countries develop their economies so that the world is more peaceful as economies develop the world becomes more peaceful at becomes uh-huh more effective global economy and that helps everybody around the world. So that's a lot of what we do in the economic mission so we're also helping American businesses who are working in Japan and Japanese businesses who want to invest in the United States In fact just recently the governor of the State of Minnesota and the deputy governor of the State of Illinois where both in Tokyo doing what's called the Midwest Governors Association tour. So it's a good opportunity. Unity for a Japanese businesses that invest in Illinois Minnesota and other parts of the US to meet with the heads of those organizations and meet with other companies companies that are interested in investing. I think something like eight hundred thousand. US jobs are basically sponsored by Japanese industry in the United States because because of the the investment that they have in the US so it's pretty significant investment. Do they do so actually if you look at much of the automotive industry in the US and not just the main companies but the Second and third tier suppliers. Many of them are Japanese origin in net Minnesota Specifically because I attended that reception just recently a lot of investment in medical devices in research and development Actually just as I was driving here today from Chicago. There's a building on the side of the road that's called Nippoin Shadow. which basically is is Japan train cars so I'm not sure if they are making train cars there? If it's a development line was just like I wonder what they're doing there But Yeah I think a lot of it is there. You just don't know it unless you know it. I'll actually a funny coincidence. I was talking to somebody at the Minnesota reception in and realize that the company that I worked for when I was in Minnesota was bought out a couple of years ago by a different company and that company was just recently bought by Japanese company. Me So It's sort of a weird coincidence of chain And so I think when I was a college kid you know in the late eighties early nineties. There was a lot of discussion about sort of Japan taking over. US Industry and interesting how that dynamic and that language has changed over time and and the partnership between the US. Japan has become really a partnership then so the investment from Japanese companies in the US viewed as a very positive opportunity and vice vice versa. US companies are doing a lot of investment in Japan as well so when you think about. US Japan think high-tech think anything that requires a lot of rnd because both the US and Japan. Japan do a lot of investment in our Indian intellectual property rights and we're both strong advocates for positive support for intellectual property rights. We're also curious. It's about what your day to day. Life looks like in your current position with the State Department semi day-today life as a supervisor. I spend a Lotta time. Actually just is making sure that my team has the tools and the information to do the job that they need to be doing so I have a team of fourteen people and we work like I said on a lot a very high tech topic. So there's a lot of new information. There's a lot of new. There's a lot of relationship building. There's a lot of understanding who's doing what and where her and how does that connect to US policy and US interests so a lot of my time is spent gathering information spent talking to people it spent helping to manage people and Resources on a day to day basis. I read a lot. I wish I got paid based on. How many emails I sent and received because that would really we be fascinating but but that's not how it works so yeah I actually going to be out of the Office for about three weeks time and the last time I was out of the Office for two weeks I came back to more than more than a thousand emails in the INBOX waiting for action? So I've been trying to keep up a little bit more this time but sometimes you just need to unplug. That's true now you've been to a lot of different places. Like Pakistan Nepal Jamaica has that day to day routine changed at all all over the course of your career if the State Department every country has different cultural norms and therefore those cultural norms become a part of the way the embassy operates when I was in Nepal which is my first first assignment. I was still figuring out what it meant to work for. The State Department and Nepal is a developing country had a lot of opportunities to figure out how to provide a professional national work environment in a country that was lacking infrastructure and my job in Nepal was actually to provide for the infrastructure that supported other diplomats homeadvisor doing their job so that was a definite interesting challenge and so I was responsible for providing all of the transportation that people needed and water to their homes. Because there there wasn't a functioning water supply making sure that they had safe housing. That was especially seismically safe because as you know a couple of years later there was a massive birth quake in Nepal and and we were grateful for the work that we did to ensure that our our diplomats said seismically safe housing. At the time I was also at the time helping coming to build a new embassy building because the old building had been there a long time with was no longer functional and the fact that that building was completed by the time there was a massive earthquake. Meant meant that we actually saved lives. We're able to have continue to have a functioning embassy despite the fact that there was a massive earthquake but it did have the right internal infrastructure. Her that allowed it to continue to operate effectively. So Nepal is developing country was a different experience than say Jamaica as a developed country but but also an island nation so a lot of really interesting history Kingston has a city which is where the embassy is located has some security challenges and so oh but different kinds of security challenges definitely different than Katmandu but definitely different than Pakistan which eventually went to serve it and actually served in Pakistan for four years. I who is two years in Lahore and two years in Islamabad and so different types of cities Lahore being the Cultural Capital of Pakistan and Islamabad Islamabad. Being a planned city you know plant as a capital still trying to kind of figure out its own culture and and have the culture of a nation. That's a combination combination of a lot of different cultures. That are Pakistanis. And so our Pakistani Punjabi like most Pakistanis are in the Lahore area. Or are they ashton or are they other parts of the culture and so it's a very interesting country and then there's Iraq in Iraq. I was in Iraq from two thousand eight to two thousand nine and the security situation Shen shifted while I was there in that we moved from working in a palace to working in the new embassy compound. So we'll probably never again have the opportunity ready to have an office. That is actually a bedroom in a palace And so that was fascinating but we also had to change from sort of the ad hoc way things were done in a palace to the more normalized way that things were done in a traditional embassy compound and on the other hand was also I. I did a lot of infrastructure there as well. It was making sure everybody has got fed that they got the transportation that they needed to do their jobs that the construction was completed that we had the right support. Networks in place for for supporting our diplomatic mission which in Iraq was not just economic not just consular but also primarily political helping helping the Iraqis form of government that was functional and continued to be functional across the different aspects of their society and then also developmental and how the different parts of the US government USA ID Department of Defense State Department programs that do development how they we're helping to redevelop the economy. The Education Hospital system anything that was needed in the country that really was destroyed in the war and so the infrastructure structure needing to be rebuilt and and reflect the history that change in history that needed to happen so that everybody who was an Iraqi was focused on rebuilding the country and supporting the nation in a way that they hadn't done in generations because of having having Saddam Hussein at the head of the government so it was it was a time of transition. And it'll be interesting to see over the course of time how that continues to progress today. Liberal Arts College prepare you for those different challenges and different cultures Liberal Arts College definitely prepared me for for all of those challenges and Cultures Alters You know I think one of the keys of course is lifelong learning. And you don't get everything that you need to know in four years of college or for or years of of high school and the way the.

"We are eager support and be a part of the work. The new environmental task force established by President Balls earlier this year however we believe it can be a success only if we continue continue the momentum and support generated at the event today we want the administration to know that climate action on August campus will not go unnoticed by students and that this fight is invaluable for our community members following in the footsteps of many small liberal arts other small liberal arts institutions. We feel that it was the first step up. The Augustan Andy Community should prioritize and fully commit to employing fulltime sustainability coordinator having a dedicated staff member. The staff member to serve as the expert on sustainability will be the most effective way to create immediate change on our campus. This climate strike serves as a call to action for all of August. August is weapons storms. That many other small liberal arts colleges have not been able to we know we are strong institution we know we have the potential to follow in the footsteps of so many other institutions that have been so cold and brave enough to take immediate Clement Action Action we asked our leaders begin to treat climate action as the very urgent ethical responsible and mandatory effort needed to provide any sort of future Augustina College. These changes start now. The thank you now. Senior student Morgan Anderson will be performing a poem. Hi everybody it's great to see all these faces here on this poem I'm going to. We do exit from Prince as future generations. Dear Future Generations. I think I speak for the rest of us when I say sorry. I'm sorry we left you with a mess of a planet story that we were too caught up in our own doings to do something. Sorry sorry that we listen to people who made excuses to do nothing. I hope you forgive us. We just didn't realize how special the earth was like a marriage rage gone wrong. We didn't know what we had until it was gone. For example. I'm guessing you probably know about the Amazon desert right. Well believe it or not. It was called Amazon rainforest and there were billions of trees there and all of them gorgeous. and Oh you don't know much much about trees do you. Well let me tell you about trees. Trees are amazing. I mean they've literally are creating the air that we are breathing in. Which is why? I'm so sorry to tell you that we burn them down at a rate of forty football fields every minute so I'm sorry to future generations. I'm sorry that our footprints became a sinkhole and not a garden. I'm sorry that we do and I'm sorry that we couldn't find another planet in time to move to and I'm so you know what I'm not sorry this future. I do not accept it because an error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it we are. This generation is the foundation. It is up to us to take care of this planet. Eight is our only only home. We must globally our hearts and change the climate of our souls and realize we are not apart from nature. We are a part of nature to trey.

You're constantly being bombarded by problems that we face in sometimes we can get completely overwhelmed. The story of the Hummingbird is about this huge forest being consumed by fire all the animals in the forest. Come out and they are transfixed as they watched the forest burning and they feel very overwhelmed around very powerless powerless. Except this little hummingbird says I'm going to do something about the fire so sized sized to the nearest dream and takes a drop of water it puts it on the fire ignores up and down up and down up and down this facet care in the meantime all the other animals weaker animals like the elephant with a big trunk. That could bring much more water. They're standing there helpless and they're we're saying to the Hummingbird do you think you can do. You are too little this fires too big your wings too and your beak is so small that you can only bring a small auto water at a time as they continue to this cruise to Tells Them I'm doing the best I can. And that's all of us should do. We should always be likely hummingbird maybe insignificant. But I certainly don't want ought to be like the animals watching the planet go down the drain. I will be humming bird. I will do the best I can. I will be a hummingbird. I will be a hummingbird. I will be a Hummingbird I will be hovering more.

"Politicians the media. Sometimes I wrote down. I'm away over here. I stopped so I can write it this this I just heard these phrases us this morning. We got to deregulate too. Many regulations. We have to share the hardship. We have to make an our number one priority. We have to and I thought back when I used to teach freshman English language about the phrase that said we're going to stand by our allies. That's the abstract. You don't let those abstracts take over your thinking because I would ask that person. We're going to stand by our allies. That means you're gonNA give nuclear weapons. Does that mean we're going to send our men and women to their war. Is that me. We're just GONNA clap for them when they go out there. I don't know what it means but don't you dare Tom. Think that what you think and how you work is important because you are inspirational. And you're contagious. I thank you for all you do. godless include a the student. Cheyenne Bartlett would now like to share her message and a call to action for students through. This is really tough for me okay. I think I'm just GONNA hold it. I would like to begin by saying I am beyond grateful for all the staff faculty and upperclassmen and specifically the seniors for putting the Augustan climate strike in motion. We would not be here today if it wasn't for your drive and vision for Augustina but sorry seniors seniors. I'm not here to talk about you because as much as you guys don't WanNa hear it next year you will not be on campus and that is why I'm here. I'm here to talk doc to underclassmen of August because for the next couple of years this is our life our community and our home over the past week. I've talked to a lot a lot of people about the climate straight. What makes vo sad to hear? People say that our actions don't matter and that they will not have any positive consequences because they you do many of you may not know doctor Lashley. So I'd like to share a brief story it from her of her undergraduate years at Kobe college a school where in four years his one single student was able to get rid of all the plastic bottles on campus. I reiterate one single student if the student you can make that much change on campus. Imagine what all of us could do together. We we still have three to four more years underclassmen to May change on campus our involvement and our passions they matter especially underclassmen. We're the generation of students. That can start a movement and see it through. We have the time ideas and passion to do amazing things. Don't wait until junior or senior year to give an get involved. Do not use the excuse of not having enough time to stop you from doing something. You're passionate about. I think everyone here can relate when I say the first couple of years of college can be overwhelming. My favorite metaphor to use is the cheap disk plates used. That family renew begins the ones that that nearly break apart from everything we put on our plates but no matter how full our plates are always have room for our favorite dessert. Being a part of the Augustan climate change Has Been My desert and I cannot just how important it is for every single one of you to have your own daily dessert. Even just weekly dessert for any student faculty or staff member interested in being involved in follow up climate follow-up global climate change actions. Please please look for the clipboards. Being passed around so he can get your contact information. Put Your heart into Augustina the Oh okay. Thank you so senior students. Robert Burke and Hunter Ridley will now read Augustan students call to administration for Institutional Action. Thank you I ever run. Yeah thanks for being here. There's like a lot more than more than one which is great. That's all we need right so I was reading the news this morning. I woke up early and I was reading about. How great attuned burke she is? She's in the states visiting and this week and she was speaking with some senators Tuesday and the commended her and other young people for doing what we're doing but to them she said. Please save us your praise. We don't WANNA on it. Don't invite us here to tell us. How inspiring we are without doing anything about it? So on behalf of the student body. That's what we're standing up for is saying that we are in support a firm climate climate action at Augustina college right. So ask college students where we're learning. We're learning a lot and we've been doing this. Our entire lives. MM students in our generation specifically have learned a lot about the ways in which the world is changing and not just in a book not just in our history classes not just in anecdotes from our parents and grandparents. It's in everything. Students in our generation know a lot about these complex social and economic geopolitical and environmental issues. Because we're we're paddling through some pretty extremely turbulent waters on our own and we all do this in a learning environment at August Anna College that encourages us to dig deeper to be curious and to take things to the next level. Level when we find where our passion intersects with the need for a greater good so many of us feel called to take action and in our daily lives we are affected by the realities of this systemic injustice estes and social problems and we know today. The climate change to is another harsh reality that our generation viciously so on the topic of climate change. We the students have always maybe not always. But we've known for a long time that we should be doing something. We knew that we should be a little bit greener. We should try to recycle in. Turn off the lights and all that use is less plastic but we know that these types of changes are just drops in the bucket. These larger concerns of sat in the backs of our minds without really direct route powerful change but the fact of the matter is that August. Anna students have long been vocal supporters of this type of collection action. And you see that right here today. If you look around you the Augustan away is to recognize ignites when you're well past the point. Where enough is enough? We know the large-scale problems. And we know exactly how to kick off a large-scale long-term more more active dialogue on the issues at hand at Augustina College. Thankfully this is normal occurrence Passionate students have kicked off countless initiatives for radically changing the world. Well we live in just a few short years here we've seen. I've lost my spot. We've we've organized collectively for Solidarity Walks National School Walkouts inclusion in rallies. We've fought against things like homophobia transphobia gun violence sexual assault racism and other other forms of Hatred and injustice and as a campus campus. We're active supporters of making August at a better school a better leader and a better home so today the action of making the world better going on strike for the environment. That's what we do hunter in Austria off script. Thank you for bearing with the heat. And and Don't mind US leading up here and maybe a climate action is no longer debatable. No longer an issue to place on the back burner and deal with later. It's our own twenty-first century crisis that we're all living in no we're not a coastal city. And no we're not a Pacific island. Rising sea levels and increasingly violent and unpredictable. Storms are not our biggest concern. We're far too intelligent to pretend we're not facing our very own very very personal climate emergency. We're lucky to not yet face life threatening effects of climate change but we cannot say that the rest of the world has been so privileged. Nor can we say that August. We'll also will always continue to be immune to climate change global impact. Climate Change is an act of epochal citizenship. Ethical citizenship is one of August explicit goals as highlighted in our college wide student learning outcomes we asked them if ethical citizenship is a quasi. How do we value? Why are we not practicing what we so boldly preach if we have a chance if we have the chance to be a leader among higher education institutions and a beacon of inspiration for the Quad City community? Let's take advantage of any An all opportunities to work towards sustainable future while we still have time. Our community includes hundreds of outstanding and intelligent experts in their feels fields. We Aren't absolute goldmine of knowledge. So let's use our resources wisely as students faculty and staff.

"Thank you so much for coming out. This is a huge crowd so proud that there's so many students out here who showed up to support this. 'cause my name's Hunter Ridley and introduce our emcee for today Gonzales. Home Talk Talk Talk. Alot and welcome to the global. Climate climates drank. My name is Tanisha and I'll be your master of ceremonies today. So if you're here you're making history. You're on the right place. Let me thank you for your courage to listen to what needs to be said. In recent years we've seen a countless number of children and young adults drawing climate emmett global headlines for their inspiring blunt and brutally honest words on climate change the boldly stood up to the man immediate climate action from the government and local leaders. This these brave individuals are part of a generation whose futures are on a current trajectory towards disastrous and terrifying consequences of climate change. It is our generation they are speaking for and it is our future as a collective of Augustan students faculty staff and community members. We stand today in solidarity with thousands of others across the world protesting for climate action as part of the larger global global climate strike movement in March of this year young climate activists. Greta Tune Burke gave a speech in Berlin where she said we live in a strange world where children must sacrifice their education in order to protest against the destruction of their future the relevance and power of her words need not be explained explained but despite the sacrifice we are here we are afraid for our future we are afraid for the future of August Anna a place that we call home we need faculty staff student. The board of trustees and administration to all be afraid to due to be concerned enough to take immediate and effective steps towards sustainability and climate action on August. Dana's campus doing it later. It's just too late now. Manage Reduce Augustan his own pastor. Richard Pretty who is here today to speak about climate action from the religious perspective. The story story is told that we are made of the earth that we inhabit that you and I were made from a a handful of earth. The story is that God got down on God's own knees and scooped up a handful of dirt part and then God did what God does best. God created the Work of art. God molded that handful of earth earth into a human being and then the story says that God did Little Cpr on that Earth creature and breathed into that the new creatures nostrils the breath of life and at that moment it says at that moment that sculptured work of earth art became a living being. And what's really cool. Is that the words of the story in Hebrew which is the language in which it's written the words of the story itself suggest our original kinship with the earth. Get this in Hebrew. It reads the God made a dumb from Adama which is translated that God formed the first human being. That's a dumb from the ground from the earth that's Optima so the Justice the Word Adum which means human being is taken from the word for earth the word Optima we are art intimately related to the Earth is our Ken and so as we come together. This warning to protest the violence being perpetrated on the Earth we admit to a personal interest in our protest. It's our Ken that is being violated and defame. It's our kin being polluted and burned. It's our kin and that is melting. Let's tap into God's loving intention from the beginning of creation that earth and it's climate and we ourselves are one we are one with the earth it says so all in the story of our beginnings let it be so today the picks next senior student Jill Hunky and a junior troy failure will be presenting a speech on the equity and justice aspect of climate action. It's great to see so many people here. Let's hear it for taking climate action. We are here today to talk about the justice component of climate change as climate impacts continue to intensify poor people and people of color are disproportionately impacted we might not realize these impacts because most of us can the scape them for now. Poor people on the other hand can't escape them for example they don't have air conditioning to escape. The increasingly the frequent and more intense heat waves and droughts around forty percent of the world's population it's almost four billion people live in coastal the areas where rising seas threaten their homes every day. And it's poor people and people of color here to who are already suffering when superstorm for storms. Sandy Hit New York City Wall Street recovered just fine but it took years for the rockaways where some of the poorest New Yorkers live to recover even here on campus. The electricity that we are currently using is partly coming from coal and has been shown that low income and minority groups are more likely to be exposed to pollutants the people that live next to the coal plant that we are utilizing have higher rates of asthma and respiratory illnesses as a result salt. But it's not just poor people and minorities who faced the brunt of climate impacts people who haven't even been born yet who contributed had nothing to this problem will face climate exacerbated food shortages and the planet less hospitable civilization and life as we know it these are all examples of people cook contributed relatively nothing to this problem but who will pay the consequences for the actions we take or fail. Take Your August and that is why what we do today. Matters inclusion is important to us here at Augustina and one of our guiding principles is to be responsible and self self aware of our own words and actions and speak out against injustice intolerance and discrimination. So why do we continue to ignore these social injustices. Instead of continued failure to address the climate crisis we need to start actively contributing to the solution. We needed to start this long time ago. For All of US students Even born so the hours late and we did take bold action immediately here in August Santa. We're in a position to respond with urgency that climate change commands. We can do our part in lots of ways. such as reducing the emissions at the speed that science demands investing in renewable energy promoting sustainability and energy efficiency improving recycling and composting programs and reducing our consumption millions of lives and countless species are on the line we need to change. We are here today to make that change. Will you help us make that change. That's a real question. Will you help us make Dr Jane Simonsen Professor of History. We're here at August. Diana is here to speak about the significance of the indigenous perspective on climate action. I'm just GONNA hold this. Hi thanks for that introduction and for everyone for being here today I want to start by recognizing that where we stand right now. Our lands that used to belong to the SOCK squawky quasi Peoria Miami and other indigenous groups who were steward of land long before we were here. I teach in history and gender studies I know a lot of people think that historian specialize in memorizing facts. But what we actually do or good ones should do is to find an evaluator evidence to see whether the stories that we use to explain who we are and what choices to make are the best ones to tell so what to storytelling calling has to do with climate change a lot years of teaching and listening tells me that people try really hard to fit new information into old familiar stories were slow to change our narratives. We know that for centuries cultures and peoples have attempted to explain changes in the weather what we now understand to be the global climate by fitting new information into old stories. So here's the story Europeans. I arrived on this continent partly due to a critical climate change. The little ice age began in the late.
